The Democratic Party that once was concerned with workers’ rights, the elderly, civil rights, and the constitutional protections of America liberty no longer exists. As the just completed Democratic presidential primaries and the Democratic presidential convention have clearly demonstrated, the United States now has two Republican parties in service to the One Percent.

The organized Democrats–the Democratic National Committee–have shown themselves to be even more venal and corrupt than the Republicans. Leaked emails document that the Democratic National Committee conspired with the Hillary campaign in order to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. It is clear that Sanders was the choice of Democratic Party voters for president, but the nomination was stolen from him by vote fraud and dirty tricks.

The DNC and the media whores have tried to discredit the incriminating emails by alleging that the leaked emails resulted from a plot by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in behalf of “Putin’s American agent,” Donald Trump. “A vote for Trump is a vote for Putin,” as the presstitute scum put it.

This diversionary tactic has not worked. Not even Americans are stupid enough to fall for it.

Consequently, the corrupt “leader” of the DNC had to resign and was unable to deliver her speech at the nominating convention from fear of being booed off the stage.

Sanders’ supporters have abandoned Hillary and the fake “Democratic Party.” Probably most of them will vote for the Green Party candidate.

The organized Republicans–the Republican National Committee–and the zionist neoconservatives wanted to block Donald Trump from the nomination just as the DNC blocked Sanders, but could not. The neoconservatives are organizing for Hillary as she is their warmonger and Trump says he is not, but as the Presidential contest is really a contest between the two Republican parties about which gets to be the whore for the One Percent, the RNC, impressed with Hillary’s lack of voter support, seems to be sticking with Trump. Better to be a well-paid whore than to be out in the cold.

In the coming presidential election, the outcome will probably be determined by whether the powerful oligarchic interest groups decide whether Trump is an actual threat or whether they can cosy up to him and rope him in by appointing his government.

Trump’s disability is that no matter how able an individual is, that person cannot simultaneously make themselves a multi-billionaire and be knowledgeable of economic and foreign policy issues. The bald fact is that Trump, if he becomes president, does not know whom to appoint in order to have the support from his government to effect the changes for which his supporters hope he stands.

When a person becomes President, that person doesn’t suddenly become an encyclopedia with full knowledge. The President is dependent on the information flows from his government. If those information flows support the interests of Wall Street, the corrupt “banks too big to fail,” the military-security complex, the Israel Lobby, agribusiness, and the extractive industries (energy, mining, timber), the President’s decisions will support these material interests.

Donald Trump is the American people’s choice, because he is opposed to the offshoring of American jobs–a corporate practice that has enriched the One Percent at the expense of the American middle class.

Donald Trump is the American people’s choice, because he opposes the fabricated, gratuitous conflict with Russia. Even Americans understand that taking war to a major nuclear power will not end well.

Donald Trump is the American people’s choice because he realizes that NATO–an organization whose purpose disappeared 25 years ago when the Soviet Union collapsed as a result of the coup against Gorbachev by extreme elements of the Soviet Communist Party–now serves as a vehicle and cover for Washington’s aggressions, which are war crimes under the international statutes that Washington created. Washington’s wars benefit some of the One Percent at the expense of both the 99 Percent and millions of innocent peoples in many countries.

What will happen now is that the presstitutes will demonize Donald Trump even more than they have demonized Vladimir Putin. The scum presstitutes will do everything that they can possibly do to make a vote for Trump into an act of treason against America.

Now that the presstitutes have learned that they can tell the most blatant lies–Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Iranian nukes, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Russian invasions–without being held accountable, they know that they can lie about Trump.

And they will. To the hilt.

But the presstitutes have lost credibility. A person has to be an imbecile to believe a word that they say.

“Progressives” will wander off the track. They will be turned off by Trump’s stand on immigration, which is where the American people stand. “Progressives” will be worried about whether the ‘fascist” Trump will persecute transgender and homosexual people or revoke the right of women to abort the unborn. To “progressives” this will seem all important as Washington and its NATO vassals hurl the world into nuclear war.

Neither can any intelligence be expected from the defunct American left-wing. The American left-wing supports the official story of 9/11, the excuse for the last 15 years of illegal wars and the American Police State. To find the American left-wing totally allied with the official explanation of what is in reality a false flag event, committed in order that the neoconservatives would have their new Pearl Harbor in order to invade the Middle East, is demonstrable proof that the American left-wing is irrelevant.

The American left interprets 9/11 and subsequent false flag events as oppressed peoples striking back at their oppressors. The emotional satisfaction of this takes the impotent American left-wing out not only of action but of relevance in commentary. The American left-wing has become an asset of the enemy–the neoconservatives who control policy in Washington.

ORDER IT NOW

So, where do we stand? The answer is that we are closer to nuclear annihilation than ever before. I know of what I speak. I held the highest security clearances. I was a member of a secret committee that enabled President Reagan to end the Cold War.

The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin is doing everything he can possibly do to avoid the nuclear war that the crazed American neoconservatives are bringing to humanity. For his efforts in behalf of planet Earth he is demonized 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year after year. For simply stating facts, I am described by the presstitutes as “an apologist for Putin.”

The endless lies about Russia have convinced the Russian media that Washington is mobilizing its NATO vassals for an attack on Russia. Read the transcripts to this Russian media broadcast.https://vimeo.com/174777588

If you aren’t scared after absorbing this Russian news broadcast, you are stupid beyond belief. The message is clear: the West has declared war on Russia but is trying to keep Russia off guard by denying it.

The video of the Russian news broadcast also shows the dismissive way the Russian media was treated at the recent NATO conference in Poland. The non-entity representatives of the non-entity countries of Latvia, which has been ruthlessly looted by the West, Estonia, Lithuania, and Poland, and the Ukraine representative either refuse to speak to the Russian media or use the interview to repeat Washington’s false accusations against Russia. These imbeciles insulting Russia are representatives of countries that Russia could destroy in a few minutes. If these idiots think Washington could save them, they are as stupid as the Polish colonels who thought that the British guarantee in March 1939 meant anything and could save Poland from the rash action of sticking Poland’s fingers in Hitler’s eye. This Polish stupidity provoked by the stupid British set off World War II with the British and French declaration of war against Germany, thus consigning Poland to Soviet rule for a half century. Some guarantee! The imbecile Chamberlain who wanted peace started WWII with Britain’s worthless “guarantee.”

Does it make you feel safe that the arrogant warmongering imbeciles in Washington have convinced a nuclear power the equal of the United States that America is going to attack?

Moreover, Russia is a nuclear power allied with another nuclear power, China, which has had enough of Washington’s imbecilic provocations. Are you willing for “your” government to lead your future into nuclear war with two nuclear powers?

Here we Americans are going into a presidential election and the overpowering fact of our time–that Washington is threatening humanity with nuclear war–is not a subject for discussion! What is the matter with us Americans? Are we stupid beyond all belief? We sit stupidly, thinking that issues of no importance are the most important issues of our time while “our” insane government provokes nuclear war. Have any people in history failed their obligation to this extent? If so, who?

My case rests. There is no countervailing evidence against the fact that unadulterated evil rules the West and is driving the world to extinction. Western democracy is a total failure. Democracy could not prevent the crazed warmonger Hillary from presidential nomination despite the opposition of the American people.

How long can Russia, and China, wait before they conclude that they have to pre-empt the coming attack from Washington? Does anyone, even stupid Americans, think that once Russia and China are convinced that they are targets for attack that they will just sit there and await the attack?

Do peoples as guilty of dereliction of duty as Western peoples are have any right to survive?

  1. The affection that purported opponents of neoliberalism shower upon Sanders is a truly remarkable phenomenon. Sanders was a work-dodging bum for decades, having been literally thrown out of communes for refusing to so much as lift his finger, until he became a professional demagogue instead. This sorry little man accomplished nothing in Congress, agreed to become an unchallenged, “independent” Democratic Senate vote in exchange for preventing third party formation in Vermont, and refused to attempt a serious effort at the nomination until it was too late. How an Oxford-educated economist could take seriously a UChicago clown who spouts the same seven or eight identical lines at every opportunity and venue is beyond me.

  2. “Do peoples as guilty of dereliction of duty as Western peoples are have any right to survive?”

    This is not really a fair indictment of the Western people. As you indicate, the media (hand in hand with the educational system, by the way) have been lying to the peoples of the West for quite some time. If people are told lies from the time they can crawl, and kept in the dark about events going on behind their backs, then how can they be expected to respond as someone who has been informed?
    Despite that, many have come to the recognition that they are being lied to, and being sold down the river.

    Most may not know specifically about what is going on with Russia, but they are tired of being forced into war after war for dubious reasons, tired of being forced to accept illegals and hostile refugees, tired of being lied to by the media, and this is readily observed by the phenomenal support of Trump by the people.

    Not quite. We are long past the stage where borderline psychotic anti-Communists passing their ideological beliefs off as facts can bamboozle a President into doing things he knows are counter-productive like they did to Kennedy. Trump ultimately sets the policy and appears to have a better handle on reality than the current leaders in Washington. Given the shit-storm that has come his way from all the experts, he should be prepared to shove their “expertise” away if it doesn’t fit his worldview.

  4. You are at the top of your form here sir. I am a long time admirer of your work. You are a man of principle who values the truth over prestige and wealth. At this late hour however, it would seem you are railing against the tide. Thank you for your considerable efforts on our behalf.

  5. “The bald fact is that Trump, if he becomes president, does not know whom to appoint in order to have the support from his government to effect the changes for which his supporters hope he stands.”

    POTUS is nothing more than the head of a management team, and Trump wil certainly be able to put together a team that would be as capable as that of any previous administration. The bald-faced fact is that if The Trump administration deviates in any way from the courses of action and narratives of the deep state, the entrenched members of the deep state will simply pull the levers of power as they see fit.

  6. Mr. Roberts is extraordinarily intelligent and perceptive. However, it does not behoove him to belittle the citizens of the US. Some of us, like him, have functioning brains. Not all of us are brainless morons. In fact, some of us aren’t conservatives, progressives, liberal, Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, nor members of any stereotypical grouping that Mr. Roberts derides. There are actually people who figured out the same things he writes about, who did not need to be a government insider to understand how things work. Such people defy classification. I think of such beings as having functional human intellects. It would be a good thing if such people got together to figure out how to survive and replace governance by psychopathic savages.

    Bingo! Mr Roberts.

    The DNC is so thoroughly corrupt, so rigged,and the majority of delegates so thoroughly bought, that Queen Hillary would become the nominee of the Democratic party even if Bernie received EVERY SINGLE VOTE.

    How rotten to the core are American politics ?

    What a grotesque charade perpetrated on the American people.

    Ans how much more of a “grand deflection” in blaming “Putin” is there, really ?

    I mean COME ON.

    Are we not all truly operating in the nadir of American history.

    Isn’t our unprecedented , humongous 21 trillion dollar debt, combined with the fact that 99% of the American people are poorer today than ever….proof of this ?

    And moreover isn’t the coronation of Queen Hillary as our next commander-in-chief the greatest guarantor of ZERO ACCOUNTABILTY for the massive criminal fraud foisted on us all ?

    Can any of us say, without a clear-eyed certainty, that we are not bearing witness to the greatest criminal enterprise in all of human history ?

    What a travesty we have become.

    God help us all.

    The only civil rights the Democrats have busied themselves with is the civil rights of non-whites. Since I’ve been alive the Democrat party has been a foe of the bill of rights especially the second amendment and increasingly the first amendment. The cacophony from progs and ultra left liberals to criminalize all speech they disagree with as “hate speech and “extremism” continues to grow. Under the leadership of Hussein Obama the Democrat party is now the party of black and brown tribalism and Islamophilia and Hildabeast is eager to carry on Obama’s legacy.

    Russia is standing in the way of overthrowing the regime of Bashar Al Assad and Iran and therefore, remaking the entire middle east and the world to benefit the state of Israel.

  9. Paul Craig Roberts does not exist. He’s been dead for years. Unz Review owner, Ron, ” Call me Unzi, ” Unz has been ghostwriting these columns in order to save money.
    Why pay someone to be paranoid, when you can do it yourself.

    All democracies fail, because when you let idiots vote bad things happen.

    Once again Roberts is blinded by his rabid communist ideology and gets it exactly backwards. The Democrats are the socialist/communist/stalinist/fascist/racist party and authoritarian elitism is part of that. They haven’t become republicans – they are what they have always been – leftists. The republicans were taken over by the RINOs who are cultural marxists (i.e. leftists) which is why you can’t tell any difference between the two parties, and is why we all went for Trump and the destruction of the republican party as it currently exists. Democrats didn’t become republicans; republicans became democrats which is why obama has been able to get everything he wanted from Congress.

  12. Corvinus says:
    @alexander

    So, if American politics is so corrupt, why is not the author, or even you, running for office like Trump and trying to change things?

  13. Corvinus says:
    @Realist

    “Too many Americans have the IQ of a corn dog”

    You know you are including whites your assessment here, right? That’s anti-white.

    And I thought whites in particular had high IQ’s, so what gives?

    “All democracies fail, because when you let idiots vote bad things happen.”

    Why would you NOT classify yourself as an idiot? How are YOU smarter than the average American voter?

    ” That’s anti-white”

    No it isn’t….it’s being honest.

    “And I thought whites in particular had high IQ’s, so what gives?”

    On average whites have a considerably higher IQ than blacks. Both east Asians and Ashkenazi
    Jews have higher IQ’s than whites. The average IQ for whites is around 100. Which means about half of whites have an IQ of less than 100.

    “Why would you NOT classify yourself as an idiot? How are YOU smarter than the average American voter?”

    I have a degree in chemistry and physics. And I can think for myself.

  15. Corvinus says:

    “No it isn’t….it’s being honest.”

    There is a disconnect here. I hear that whites in general have high IQ’s. You state different. So, someone is not telling the truth.

    “And I thought whites in particular had high IQ’s, so what gives?”

    “Which means about half of whites have an IQ of less than 100.”

    See, there you go again with anti-white statements. Don’t you know it’s best to keep them to yourself?

    “I have a degree in chemistry and physics. And I can think for myself.”

    Just because you have degrees does NOT mean you are necessarily smarter than the average bear.

    ” I hear that whites in general have high IQ’s.”

    Your statement is meaningless. IQ is relative.

    “See, there you go again with anti-white statements.”

    It’s not anti-white….it’s math. I think I see where you fall on the IQ graph.

    “Just because you have degrees does NOT mean you are necessarily smarter than the average bear.”

    When the degrees are in a STEM subject, it sure as hell does.
