The “war on terror” has simultaneously been a war on truth. For fifteen years—from 9/11 to Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” and “al Qaeda connections,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” endless lies about Gadaffi, “Russian invasion of Ukraine”—the governments of the so-called Western democracies have found it essential to align themselves firmly with lies in order to pursue their agendas. Now these Western governments are attempting to discredit the truthtellers who challenge their lies.

Russian news services are under attack from the EU and Western presstitutes as purveyors of “fake news.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/moscow-accused-of-propagating-fake-news-eu-resolution-on-russian-propaganda/5558835 Abiding by its Washington master’s orders, the EU actually passed a resolution against Russian media for not following Washington’s line. Russian President Putin said that the resolution is a “visible sign of degradation of Western society’s idea of democracy.”

As George Orwell predicted, telling the truth is now regarded by Western “democratic” governments as a hostile act. A brand new website, propornot.com, has just made its appearance condemning a list of 200 Internet websites that provide news and views at variance with the presstitute media that serves the governments’ agendas. http://www.propornot.com/p/the-list.html Does propornot.com’s funding come from the CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy, George Soros?

I am proud to say that paulcraigroberts.org is on the list.

What we see here is the West adopting Zionist Israel’s way of dealing with critics. Anyone who objects to Israel’s cruel and inhuman treatment of Palestinians is demonized as “anti-semitic.” In the West those who disagree with the murderous and reckless policies of public officials are demonized as “Russian agents.” The president-elect of the United States himself has been designated a “Russian agent.”

This scheme to redefine truthtellers as propagandists has backfired. The effort to discredit truthtellers has instead produced a catalogue of websites where reliable information can be found, and readers are flocking to the sites on the list. Moreover, the effort to discredit truthtellers shows that Western governments and their presstitutes are intolerant of truth and diverse opinion and are committed to forcing people to accept self-serving government lies as truth.

Clearly, Western governments and Western media have no respect for truth, so how can the West possibly be democratic?

The presstitute Washington Post played its assigned role in the claim promoted by Washington that the alternative media consists of Russian agents. Craig Timberg, who appears devoid of integrity or intelligence, and perhaps both, is the WaPo stooge who reported the fake news that “two teams of independent researchers”—none of whom are identified—found that the Russians exploited my gullibility, that of CounterPunch, Professor Michel Chossudosky of Global Researh, Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell, Justin Raimondo and that of 194 other websites to help “an insurgent candidate” (Trump) “claim the White House.”

Note the term applied to Trump—“insurgent candidate.” That tells you all you need to know.

You can read here what passes as “reliable reporting” in the presstitute Washington Post:https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/russian-propaganda-effort-helped-spread-fake-news-during-election-experts-say/2016/11/24/793903b6-8a40-4ca9-b712-716af66098fe_story.html

ORDER IT NOW

Western governments are running out of excuses. Since the Clinton regime, the accumulation of war crimes committed by Western governments exceed those of Nazi Germany. Millions of Muslims have been slaughtered, dislocated, and dispossessed in seven countries. Not a single Western war criminal has been held accountable.

The despicable Washington Post is a prime apologist for these war criminals. The entire Western print and TV media is so heavily implicated in the worst war crimes in human history that, if justice ever happens, the presstitutes will stand in the dock with the Clintons, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Obama and their neocon operatives or handlers as the case may be.

  1. Roberts’s conclusion is noteworthy:

    “The despicable Washington Post is a prime apologist for these war criminals. The entire Western print and TV media is so heavily implicated in the worst war crimes in human history that, if justice ever happens, the presstitutes will stand in the dock with the Clintons, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Obama and their neocon operatives or handlers as the case may be.”

    Dear Mr. Roberts,

    There is an an old Norse tale where Loki (the deceiver) persuades Thor (the hero) into a contest where they must compete in three simple trials to prove who is the more worthy and powerful god between them.

    In one of the trials, Loki(the deceiver) challenges Thor to lift up a small cat that is sitting by a stool in the hall of their contest. So Thor accepts the challenge and goes over to lift the tiny cat. With all his might he strains….but he cannot lift the cat from the floor…..and he strains once more…and he is able to move the cat ever so slightly so that one of its paws comes off the ground for a brief second.

    Upon seeing this, Loki (the deceiver )gulps in shock…as if to shutter in ‘mortal fear.

    Why ?

    Because the little cat was an “illusion”,and what Thor was REALLY asked to lift was the “serpent of the cosmos”…the largest creature in the universe responsible for binding all of time and space together.

    So unbeknownst to Thor (our hero) he had moved the universe…and Loki (the deceiver) was afraid.

    So too with you, Mr Roberts, and all the heroic internet writers with the courage to find and tell the truth.

    All of YOU moved the “universe” and swayed the election, against the “great deceiver”, the M.S.M. …with all its power and all its control.

    Even as I write this, the big media is aware, much more than you, how they have thoroughly lost the battle for the hearts and minds of the American people…

    Nobody believes anything they have to say….anymore….and why should we ?….they have proven themselves to be nothing more than criminal frauds……who are only free from their overdue prison terms…because they still control all the levers of “accountability”.

    And they know it.

    @Orville H. Larson

    Actually it would be nice if you could say more or clarify what conclusion you draw from the above statement.

    This list of blacklisted sites deserves scrutiny they might be the only truthful and reliable news and political commentary on the English language web. Note that Unz.com is on the list.

  4. I am proud to say that paulcraigroberts.org is on the list.

    Don’t be modest PCR: By regularly contributing to counterpunch.org and unz.com, you have scored a trifecta!

    Again, no concern at all from PCR for the Americn People, only the Muslims. The poor Muslims, he whines, we fought them. Why doesn’t he just move to Iraq if he loves them so much? I am sure they will treat him well.

  6. woodNfish says:

    The Intercept article is worth a read, but the war on truth didn’t start with 9-11, it began long before that. Leftists have been hiding behind positive labels like “liberal” and “progressive” for at least 75 years, probably much longer. And they get help from commentators like Roberts and others who seem to think words don’t matter as long as people read what you write. Using political correctness to squash truth and to smear people who won’t comply with the PC lies, the Left has managed to make the fascist Nazis into right wing, the KKK into a conservative group and so on. The lies just keep coming. As John Mayer sang, “When you own the information, you can bend as you please.”

    Truth is dead in the West, this really is 1984.

    And they know it.

    Do they? They appear to be doubling-down. WaPo, CNN, NBC shriek their lies at louder volume than ever.

    I suspect the American sheep will be lulled to sleep again by the pan-pipes of their 4th-Estate shepherds.

  8. crobert says:
    @landlubber

    PCR also contributes to Global Research, OpEdNews, Kahehon, Strategic Culture Foundation, RT, Sputnik, Pravda, Lew Rockwell–let’s see, that comes to 11. If three is a trifecta,what is 11. Wait, also he contributes to InfoWars, KingWorldNews, RussiaInsider, VeteransNewsNow, ZeroHedge,
    InvestmentResearchDynamics, and he is a former or occasional contributor to several other sites on the list. Let’s see, that makes 17+
    What do we call that?

    The larger part of what passes for “mainstream media” in the West today literally needs to be closed down; and many of the individuals who comprise it and have turned it into what it is need to be jailed, or at the very least permanently removed from any important media functions and marginalized (and, in some of the most egregious cases, hanging from a gallows). These people are psychopathic warmongers and cheerleaders of unprovoked naked aggression; mendacious lying propagandists and truth-inverters; and Orwellian-style indoctrinators and thought police – all rolled into one. The present-day Western “mainstream media” which they staff and maintain is a globally-acting insidious network of false-narrative construction and false-consciousness formation in service of nefarious motives and agendas. They are wicked scum, whom the planet would be much better off without.

  10. The” War on Terror” actually started in 1995 when the US and the West aided and abetted the forcible expulsion of Serbs from Krajina. It continued with the Kosovo War in 1999. The Clintons had designated Serbia as a “terror” state, to whom America, Nato and the rest could act in an arbitrary and illegal fashion. Sadly, you were rather quiet about the Clintons in those days.

    That propornot website has inadvertently done many people a huge favor by providing links to many websites that they can now go to in search of further information. Ron Paul is now a Russian agent? Reminds me of when the Ukrainian crisis was unfolding there were trolls all over the internet, including this website, claiming that those who expressed opinions dissenting from the official American government party line were ‘paid Putin stooges’. The same types who’ve coined the pejorative term ‘McCarthyism’ now are practicing it against those who might think differently, claiming to have lists of Russian agents. There’s a touch of fear-mongering hysteria in all this. My own view is that the greater the gulf between reality and the officially promoted party line the shriller the invective becomes, the more they start scrambling around in search of ways to muzzle dissenting views. As a public service the list should be widely published and disseminated with members of the public invited to go ahead and visit them and make up their own minds.

    Some questions to ponder:

    Do Israeli television ads show Jewish women with Muslim men ? With black men? With Asian men?

    Do Chinese television ads show Chinese women with white men ? With black men? With Japanese men? With Korean men?

    Do Japanese television ads show Japanese women with white men ? With black men? With Chinese men? With Korean men?

    Do Korean television ads show Korean women with white men? With black men? With Chinese men? Japanese men?

    Of course not…then why do American ads show white women with black men? Not to mention many television shows
