The rule of law has given way to law as a weapon in the hands of government
Everyone who is aware of the US government’s extraordinary criminal actions at home and abroad bears a heavy weight. The millions of peoples murdered, maimed, orphaned, widowed, and displaced by gratuitous American military aggression comprise a Holocaust of deaths based entirely on lies and false accusations in order to advance secret American and Israeli agendas....

Recently I wrote of the failure of white liberals to realize the consequences of their good intentions toward preferred minorities. The cost of this miscalculation rises by the day. Now white people in America are to be stripped of their history, because white history traumatizes preferred minorities. At George Washington High School in northern California... Read More
In my column last New Year’s eve, “The World Known to Me Is Fading Away” (https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/12/31/the-world-known-to-me-is-fading-away/), I recalled a past era when a poor Irish boy in a class society in which the English treated the Irish worst than blacks were treated in the United States could rise without the burden of student loans to...

The Era of Tyranny Has Begun
A fish rots from the head. In the Western world rot is accelerating. The rot in Washington is swiftly spreading to state and local governments and abroad to the Empire’s vassal governments. Washington’s attack on journalism represented by the illegal arrest of Julian Assange has now spread to France. The US government’s policy of sanctions... Read More
The Jews’ path to profitable victimhood was the Holocaust. For blacks the path is slavery. We hear endlessly about Slavery. Slavery is always the fault of white people, especially the Founding Fathers, the Confederacy, and Robert E. Lee. Slavery is never the fault of black Africans who engaged in slave wars against one another. Slaves... Read More
The America in which I grew up and lived my early adult life was a nation. Over the course of my life I have watched my country turn into a Tower of Babel. Homogeneity and shared values permitted us to understand one another. This doesn’t mean that there was uniformity or that things were perfect.... Read More
Robert E. Lee has been dead for 150 years, but the Identity Politics freaks can’t leave him alone. The latest attack on Lee is by CounterPunch music writer Lee Ballinger reviewing a one-sided and utterly false book by John Reeves with the biased title of “The Lost Indictment of Robert E. Lee.” The lost indictment... Read More
It is amazing the power that politically correct kooks have acquired over language, art, and literature. It is a sign that the West is culturally dead. When high museums rename paintings because some emotional weakling declares the name to be offensive, it becomes obvious that the custodians of Western culture have lost their belief in... Read More
My generation and that of our children grew up without Child Protective Service (CPS). We stand up very well compared to subsequent generations. Child Protective Services is an extremely intrusive government agency that would not have been tolerated. The power of this police agency trumps parental rights and responsibilities. The agency is an important part... Read More
Writing for Americans, unless for their entertainment, is a challenging undertaking. One reason is that many, especially of the younger generations, no longer have a concept of objective truth. For them “truth” is simply a bias reflecting one’s race, gender, upbringing or predisposition. Emotion overwhelms fact. Biases are not considered to be equal. Some are... Read More
Morris Dees, founder and director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an element of the Israel Lobby that smears and demeans truth-tellers, was fired. The article reporting Dees’ removal speculates that he was fired for sexual harassment. More likely he was fired for having to pay out $60 million of the SPLC’s $500,000,000 endowment to... Read More
White people are on the point of extinction. If you say anything about it, you are labeled a “white supremacist.” Black lives matter, but not white lives. We this, for example, in South Africa where white farmers are being massacred under the slogan “land or death” by blacks whose forebears arrived in South Africa after... Read More
Prior to the Democrats becoming the anti-American political party of Identity Politics, whites, blacks, and Puerto Ricans could laugh at themselves and at one another. Dean Martin turned a roast, in which good humored fun is poked at a prominent person, into mass entertainment. That blacks were equal opportunity targets was testimony to the success... Read More
Today on NPR a sorry excuse for a white male, who said he was a professor—pity the students—was sympathizing with the hurt that blacks feel when a white person puts on black face and dresses up like a black person. The professor said that this was not unique to Virginia and the South; white people... Read More
Virginia’s Democratic governor Ralph Northam stands by his support of abortion up to the point of birth which apparently includes while the woman is delivering. “No, I don’t have any regrets,” he says. Northam says that women have the right to be executioners and should be able to determine whether their born-alive infant should live.... Read More
We know that the white male has been delegitimized. Women’s studies, black studies, Latino studies, and Identity Politics have been demonizing, and teaching hatred of, white males since the 1980s. But where did these hate-filled special interest groups get their power? The answer is that effete white males handed it to them. It was white... Read More
Indeed, why the Great Wall of China, why Hadrian’s Wall, why the Constantinople wall, why were there walled cities, why the Israeli Wall that keeps Palestinians out of Palestine? Walls do work, according to President Obama’s former Border Patrol Chief, Mark Morgan: https://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/former-border-patrol-chief-for-president-obama-says-walls-work/ During the Obama regime, US Senator Schumer and US Rep. Pelosi agreed... Read More
The subversion of fact-based science and scholarship by the emotion-based ideology of Identity Politics is laying the groundwork for the genocide of white people. This sounds like an outlandish statement. However, it follows logically from the identification of white people with violence, oppression, and every evil in the world. In a number of columns I...

The quack Soviet “scientist” Trofim Lysenko used politics to destroy Soviet genetics. Lysenko represented the unscientific view that environment, not genetics, was the explanation. In 1948 the Soviet government banned scientific dissent from Lysenko’s theory of environmentally acquired inheritance. Thousands of Soviet scientists were dismissed, imprisoned, and executed. Under Stalin Lysenko’s quackery became agricultural policy.... Read More
Identity Politics is now the defining characteristic of the liberal/progressive/left and the political ideology of the Democratic Party. It is an ideology of hatred preached against people whose skin is white. Identity Politics is completely inconsistent with a multicultural society. The West used economic pressure to force South Africa to turn over the government to... Read More
Please keep in mind that nowhere in the Western world does it pay to tell the truth. Whistleblowers, who are protected by federal law, are nevertheless framed and imprisoned for telling the truth while nothing is done about the government officials who commit the revealed crimes. With few exceptions such as Tucker Carlson, no journalist... Read More
For too many decades the American people, by which I mean the people born and raised in the US in neighborhoods where there were family and neighbors who shared a culture, language, values, and history, have sat tolerantly while a tiny percentage of the population took away their culture by making it offensive to the...

Radical feminists are now being banned by Twitter not because they hate men, which is perfectly OK as far as Twitter is concerned, but because they object to “transwomen.” What is a “transwoman?” As far as I can understand, a “transwoman” is a male with a penis who declares himself to be a women and...

The porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has been arrested for beating his wife. His charge is “felony domestic violence.” https://sputniknews.com/viral/201811151069815820-Porn-Lawyer-Arrested-Domestic-Violence/ Now he has the legal problems that he has inflicted on others. Avenatti is the lawyer who appaently sent the “gay latino activist” into the Farmington Country Club in Virginia to verbally abuse Tucker Carlson’s daughter... Read More
In response to my short essay on November 9 ( https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/11/09/the-prevalence-of-myth-over-history/ ), a reader sent me a link to secession documents that implicated slavery, not the tariff, as the reason for Southern secession. It is typical for the uneducated to come across a document of which they have no understanding and to send it off... Read More
Today (Nov. 9) I heard a black historian on NPR say that the “civil war” was fought in order to establish a framework for human rights. He also said that black civil rights achieved by the war were overturned by the rollback of Reconstruction, put back in place by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and... Read More
Readers are asking for my thoughts about the midterm elections. Looking at this CNN map—https://www.cnn.com/election/2018/results/house–it seems that except for thin areas of the northeast and west coasts and hispanic and black enclaves in the southwest and south, the country overwhelmingly voted Republican. In my opinion, flyover America voted Republican because the “deplorables” want to defend... Read More
Fighting and violence are endemic in American culture of today, but children are only supposed to experience it vicariously by playing video games and watching movies. In my day there were organized boxing and wrestling matches. Today there are more brutal fight encounters including between women that are part of sanctioned fight matches shown on... Read More
According to news reports NBC has cancelled Megyn Kelly’s program for making “insensitive comments” while participating in a panel discussion on the appropriateness of blackface in Halloween costumes. Here is what she said: “Truly, you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person... Read More
Societal Collapse awaits in the wings if climate change and nuclear war don’t finish us off first
The Cheney-Bush and Obama regimes destroyed due process, with the result that American citizens were detained in prison indefinitely without evidence and murdered without evidence or trial. In violation of US and international laws, the US government used torture to produce “terrorists,” who were not terrorists, in order to justify Washington’s wars, wars that have... Read More
The utter failure of democratic politics
The Democrats and their feminist allies failed the country in their approach to the Kavanaugh hearing. Instead of finding out whether Kavanaugh believes in the unitary executive theory that the president has powers unaccountable to Congress and the Judiciary and agrees that a Justice Department underling, a Korean immigrant, can write secret memos that permit...

In my October 2 column I pointed out the disparity in treatment of the male football coach at the University of Massachusetts and a radical feminist professor at Georgetown University. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/10/02/the-white-heterosexual-male-has-been-renditioned-to-the-punishment-hole/ The disparity is amazingly extreme. The football coach had no intention of offending anyone when he used the word “rape” to express his opinion... Read More
American feminists have finally broken the spirit of the American white heterosexual male. I have been watching for some time the American male, or what little is left of him, meekly accept feminists’ definitions of words and male behavior. First the feminists turned the male respect for, and politeness toward, women, respect inculcated into my... Read More
This is from Ron Unz, a fearless commentator: https://forward.com/series/salary-survey/2015/jonathan-greenblatt/anti-defamation-league/ It shows the extraordinary salary—a paycheck in the 1% range—of the head of the Zionist Anti-defamattion League (ADL), an organization that despite its title defames everyone who makes the slightest criticism of Israel. For example, when the Israeli Army machine-guns 89 unarmed prostesting Palestinians, including medics... Read More
A French Court Has Ordered A Psychiatric Exam Of Opposition Leader Marine Le Pen.
So Much for Western “democracy.” Nothing is less wecomed in the West than democracy. It has long been understood in Europe that the resurrection of French President Charles de Gaulle’s French nationalism under Marine Le Pen was unacceptable to Washington. De Gaulle was not Washington-compliant, and Washington does not want another non-compliant French nationalist. Marine... Read More
Or is it a dead feminist, homosexual, transgendered walking zombie?
While driving yesterday, I turned on the car radio to see if the Russian/Syrian liberation of Idlib, Syria, from the Washington-supported terrorists had begun. What I got was two white females deploring white racism on NPR. They were so guilty that they had indirectly benefitted from white racism. I thought I was going to drown... Read More
This Is Not A Joke Dear Readers: If you have concluded that a small handful of crazed morons control the words we are permitted to use, you are correct. The LGBT (Lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender) community has decided that the word “vagina” is not gender-inclusive. The new unbiased designation of vagina is “front hole.” The health website Healthline,... Read More
Last night on the main campus of the University of North Carolina a mob of ignorant fools overflowing with hate and self-righteousness overturned a statue of a Confederate soldier as a protest against “white supremacy.” From the available photos it appears that a large percentage of those protesting “white supremacy” are themselves white. I wonder... Read More
To understand how screwed-up America is, consider that patriotism is now associated with the suppression of dissent. Rich football team owners, who know nothing of the hard lives of most Americans, and the police, who routinely shoot down black people in the streets and in their homes without accountability or due process, are incensed that...

As many readers of this website have noticed, the United States has lost its character and become a dysfunctional society. In place of a largely homogeneous population once united in veneration of the Constitution, there exists today massive diversity which Identity Politics has used to disunite the population into seperate interest groups. No clause or... Read More
The coordinated attack on widely watched Info Wars host Alex Jones by Apple, Facebook, Google/Youtube, and Spotify is all the proof that we need that the total failure to enforce America’s anti-trust laws has produced unaccountably powerful firms that are able to exercise far more censorship, not only in America but also abroad among Washington’s...

Life in a failed multi-cultural society: https://www.rt.com/news/434879-south-africa-confiscation-land-law/ https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-01/south-africa-amend-constitution-allow-land-expropriation Identity Politics At Work: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5534449/South-Africas-white-farmers-likely-killed-police.html Notice that at a Human Rights Day rally in Mpumalanga, “human rights” is associated with “cutting the throat of whiteness.” This legitimizes the murder and dispossession of South African whites, who have been in the country longer than most blacks, as an...

I remember when America was a free country. You could get on an airliner without an ID. Driving licenses didn’t even have photos. If a friend was coming through your city on a flight and had a few hours layover, you could meet them inside the airport for lunch or dinner. You could meet friends,... Read More
We often hear that we need a conversation on race. Considering that Americans are a brainwashed people living in a false history, such a conversation would resemble the one the Russians were expected to have with the British in regard to the Skripal poisoning: “Yes, we are guilty. We will pay reparations. Where would you... Read More
Today is Easter, an important Christian holiday. But it is not marked on the calendar that is part of the Apple software that came with my Apple computer lap top. Today is also April Fools day, and that is marked on the Apple-supplied calendar. For Apple’s programmers, April Fools Day trumps Easter. How can it... Read More
As I wrote earlier today (https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/03/13/world-war-3-approaching/), “the entire Western world is insane.” More evidence has been jumping out at me all day. For example: President Trump has nominated a person, Gina Haspel, to be CIA Director who is deeply implicated in CIA torture and destruction of the evidence. The Republicans want to confirm her as...

Identity Politics is turning white people into a delegitimized group that it is permissible to hate and to discriminate against. White Americans are being turned into undesirables and are being delegitimized just as Jews were delegitimatized in Nazi Germany. Curiously enough, as I understand it, the Identity Politics being used to delegitimize white people has... Read More
There are many signs of American collapse. One of the most scary is the fact that the American Civil Liberties Union no longer knows what are the civil liberties it purports to defend. Identity Politics has transformed civil rights into privileges for victim groups. Yesterday (February 22, 2018) I received a 50-state survey from the... Read More
From the standpoint of the #MeToo movement, the wrong country was banned from the Olympics. It should have been the US, not Russia. According to MeToo women, the US Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics covered up Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse of US athletes for years.https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/02/14/ban-united-states-from-olympics.html In contrast, the Russian doping scandal appears to be an...

One of the great tragedies of our time is the abandonment of the working class by the white liberal/progressive/left. No longer is the victim group the working class and the victimizers Wall Street, the big banks and the capitalists. Today the victimizer is the white working class, and the victim group is everyone else. Somehow... Read More
