The Coup Against Truth

Jon Rappoport’s mocking of the US presstitutes is superb:

“Vladimir Putin is the secret president of the United States.

“Yep. That’s it. The US is now the USSR. It’s all over. Trump is a Communist who took orders from Putin. Trump is a Red. That was his game all along. He’s a billionaire Commie.”

Ridicule is effective, and nothing deserves ridicule more than the Washington Post, New York, Times, CNN, and the rest of the presstitutes who pretend to be real journalists. But as I have emphasized, and other real journalists, such as Glenn Greenwald (see, for example, https://theintercept.com/2017/01/04/washpost-is-richly-rewarded-for-false-news-about-russia-threat-while-public-is-deceived/ and https://theintercept.com/2016/11/26/washington-post-disgracefully-promotes-a-mccarthyite-blacklist-from-a-new-hidden-and-very-shady-group/ ) imply, the fake news recklessly promoted by the presstitutes brings with it the threat of thermo-nuclear war.

For several years Russia and her president have experienced endless demonization. The Russians know that Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia (done while Putin was at the Beijing Olympics) was a Washington provocation. The Russians know that Washington’s coup in Ukraine (done while Putin was at the Sochi Olympics) was a provocation aimed at seizing Russia’s Black Sea naval base in Crimea and cutting Russia off from the Mediterranean. The Russians know that Washington knows that the charges that Russia hacked Hillary’s emails and the US presidential election are lies. The Russians know that the “Russian threat” created by Washington is a lie along with all of its permutations, such as an impending Russian invasion of Poland and the Baltics. The Russians understand that US ABM bases on Russia’s borders are provocations, as are NATO military exercises on Russia’s borders and in the Black Sea. You can add to this list on your own.

The lies are ubiquitous, have grown more absurd, and are now institutionalized in the US government in the CIA, executive branch agencies, and among many US senators and representatives. That these lies are validated by endless media repetitions throughout the Western world are viewed by Russia as indications that Western populations are being prepared for a military attack on Russia. Putin has warned publicly on many occasions that the Western propaganda is dangerously destabilizing. Yet, as he also notes, no one hears his warnings.

Washington is so intent on its anti-Russian propaganda that Congress has passed, and Obama has signed, an intelligence bill that contains a section, Title V, that authorizes active measures to counter purveyors of false news. These purveyors are alternative media websites, such as this one, that challenge the official lies. The truthful alternative media is accused of being under Russian influence. Last summer a website shrouded in secrecy was created that recently posted a list of 200 websites alleged to be under Russian influence, either directly or indirectly. The Washington Post irresponsibly published a long article endorsing the fake news of 200 websites working for the Russian government.

In other words, the suppression of the truth is the last defense of the corrupt American ruling establishment. During the last 24 years three Washington regimes have murdered millions of peoples in nine or more countries along with US civil liberty. To cover up these vast crimes, unparalleled in history, the presstitutes have lied, slandered, and libeled.

And the Washington criminal regime holds itself up to the world as the indispensable protector of democracy, human rights, truth, and justice. As the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said recently, what makes America exceptional is the use of might in the service of evil.

Washington brands not only its opponents but all who speak the truth “Russian agents,” hoping that the demonization of Russia has sufficiently frightened the population that Americans will turn their backs to those who speak the truth.

It would seem obvious even to the insouciant that an establishment that has gone so far out on a limb that the CIA director publicly attributes the election of Donald Trump to Russian interference but is unable to produce a shred of evidence—indeed in the face of totally conclusive evidence to the contrary—is determined to hold on to power at all costs.

The CIA’s open, blatant, and unprecedented propaganda attack against a president-elect has caused Trump to throw down the gauntlet to CIA director John Brennan. There are reports that Trump intends to revamp and reorganize the intelligence agency. The last president who said this, John F. Kennedy, was murdered by the CIA before he could strike against them. Kennedy believed that he could not take on the CIA until he was re-elected. The delay gave the CIA time to arrange his assassination.

Trump appears to understand his danger. He has announced that he intends to supplement his Secret Service protection (which was turned against JFK) with private security.

Isn’t it striking? The president of Russia states publicly that Washington is driving the world to thermo-nuclear war and that his warnings are ignored. The president-elect of the United States is under full-scale attack from the CIA and knows that he cannot trust his official security force. One might think that these extraordinary topics would be the only ones under discussion. But you can find such discussion only on a few alternative media websites, such as this one, branded by PropOrNot and the Washington Post as “under Russian influence.”

    The problem is that these systems of power, in co-operation with academia and (unluckily over-feminized) “lower” schools, have created themselves an army of minutely programmed bots, ready for use for every (civil) war need that might arise.

    Roberts, you probably don’t watch much of social media and platforms where the young write for a generally young readership (think Quora).
    I assure you it’s still worse than what you see in the MSM.

    People up to age 30 or 35 are psychological infants (usually on some drug, legal or not).

    The sovietization of America goes on. And like it always ought to be, few see it.

    I posted this a few days ago. Of course I don’t know that the CIA killed Kennedy, but it is more than likely. Schumer, today, told Trump that he better be careful because the CIA can hurt you.
    Trump is going to have a hell of a time with Congress which is full of traitors McCain, Graham, Cotton, Ryan and to some extent McConnell, to name a few. Plus most of the Democrats. These assholes will block his appointment. How he will get around this will be interesting.

    This country is totally controlled by the power elite.

    by pandering to the Zionists

    he’ll simply out-Zio McBloodstain and the pole smoker and the rest, with his chess moves like appointing a rabid ZioNazi as ambassador to Israel, and calling Jerusalem the ‘eternal capital of Israel!’

    this way the rabid dogs of Zion, like McBloodstain will be out Zio’d and out maneuvered and forced to confirm his cabinet, or seem like a less than enthusiastic friend of Israel. And John McBloodstain would lick Putin’s and Donald Trump’s ***** off the congressional bathroom floor, rather than be considered as less than a ‘friend to Israel’

    watching McCain be forced to submit to Putin, would be worth a lot of money to me

    Correct. Trump will use AIPAC against the congress and the Pentagon against the CIA.
  4. The other day I visited the Central Armed Forces Museum of the Russian Federation. I couldn’t read the exhibits due to poor eyesight and limited Russian, but in looking at the exhibits associated with the Cold War, I was suddenly hit with “Maybe Kruschev was the good guy!” Or maybe not, Communism was a bad system. But I now see history differently than I did even five years ago.

    Another excellent piece from Paul Craig Roberts, and the comments posted so far are some of the best I've yet read at Unz.com.

    At the very least, I am now convinced that Cold War I was never really about ideology at all, and it certainly wasn't about 'defending America'. In fact, over the past few years, I have started to strongly suspect that most of our official history--going back at least to the Spanish/American War--has been one big, fat lie.

    I guess you could say I've been red-pilled.
  5. The thing that might save Trump is to keep on being Trump. In spades! Considering the opposition he faces, only his larger than life, in your face persona has the least hope of fending off the deep state horror show threat by keeping them off balance. Can he do it, or will the burdens of office and time bring him to their level? An awful lot depends on the outcome.

  6. The US leftist establishment hates Russia and VP for these basic reasons :

    1 VPs non-PC treatment of BO.

    2 VP is not a communist.

    3 VP does not red carpet gays.

    The fact that VP exposed to the world that BO is a clueless buffoon, grinds them beyond words.

    Look the left has infiltrated and subverted every mechanism p0ssible : Media, courts, entertainment, education, clergy, military, medicine, consumer issues, energy issues, and on and on, so why would they have not taken over the the intelligence gathering services.

  10. “The Russians know that…”

    They do? How? And how do you know it when the rest of us don’t, Mr. Roberts?

    Apparently, wild, unsubstantiated accusations leveled against the U.S. federal government are the nation’s fastest growing indoor sport.

    Glory be to God, people! I have no love for Washington, but you’re actually setting back your own cause — which is, I hope and assume, the cause of freedom — by making accusations which you can’t back up with evidence.
