Paul Craig Roberts, America’s Demise Is Near At Hand

Paul Craig Roberts

America R.I.P.

For years I have been cataloging America’s decline into collapse, not merely economic collapse from economic concentration and the offshoring of jobs and investment, but also the collapse of the belief system that created some unity among a diverse population.  Today not only is the economy done for, but so is the belief system that sustained social and political stability.

America no longer exists.  A geographical entity exists of diverse peoples and interests, but not a country, much less a nation.  The United States itself has degenerated into an empire.  It is no longer simply a country with an empire.  The 50 states are themselves the Establishment’s empire, and it can only be held together by force.

Earlier in my life free speech was used by liberals to legalize pornography, homosexual marriage, and abortion, all of which were opposed by the majority of the population.  This did not stop liberals from imposing their agendas on the people.  

Today free speech is impermissible, because it can be used to protest what half of the population sincerely believes was a stolen presidential election.  Even attorneys and legal firms that brought legitimate cases of electoral fraud for clients are being punished for doing the ordinary work of attorneys.  The same is happening to university professors and to average Americans who exercised their Constitutionally protected right of free speech and association and attended the Trump rally. See for example, “Americans No Longer Live in a Free Society”.

In America today, free speech can only be exercised in narrow and controlled channels.  It can be used to demonize President Trump and his supporters as “enemies of democracy.”  It can be used to demonize white people as “systemic racists” and “white supremacists,” and to demonize heterosexual white males as “misogynists.”  Its one other use is to demonize countries—Russia, China, and Iran—that stand in the way of Washington’s hegemony.  There are no other permissible uses of free speech today in the United States, an inappropriate name of the country as the country has been throughly disunited by Identity Politics and a presidential election widely perceived by voters to have been stolen.

I have provided for my readers a massive, but only partial, list of evidence of a stolen election.  See “Don’t Fall for the Establishment’s Tale Tales: There was no violent assault on the Capitol and there is abundant evidence of electoral fraud.”

But a simple question suffices:  If the election was not stolen, why is it impermissible to  raise the question?  Explanations that are off limits to investigation and public discussion are unlikely to be true.  The reason they are off limits is because they cannot withstand examination. You don’t have to go back far in time to get a long list:  Assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK, Waco, Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11, Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Iranian nukes, Assayd’s use of chemical weapons, Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russiagate, 2020 electoral fraud, January 6 Trump Insurrection.  And, yes, I left out some, but the point stands without them.  A country in which explanations are controlled is a country in which people live in lies.

In America and Western civilization generally, the concept of objective truth has essentially been destroyed, especially in educational and communication institutions. Throughout the Western World the basis of truth has been shifted from evidence to emotion.  Emotion has become the important evidence.  Objective truth is dismissed as a construct that serves white males.  

In America today everything is aligned against the white heterosexual population.  The Democrat left, universities, and media are aligned with race and gender victims of alleged white racism and transphobia.  Kristen Clarke has been appointed to the Justice (sic) Department to ensure that employment and promotion policies are aligned with race and gender victims. 

Immigration policy is aligned against white Americans. Powerless as a majority, white Americans have no future as a minority. See, for example, “Biden immediately sends Congress bill that would offer citizenship to 11 million illegals” and “Migrant Caravan Biden Policy”.

Even if white Americans could escape their insouciance and realize that their country is being taken away from them, they are powerless to do anything about it. With the new domestic terrorism bill on the way, even a protest against dispossession is criminalized as sedition.

There are many interesting aspects of the situation that we could explore.  But let’s take only one.  The Biden regime seems to be filling up with neoconservative zionists who are agents of Washington and Israel’s hegemony.  The pursuit of this hegemony involves conflict with Russia, China, and Iran.  

Washington will be entering these conflicts with a collapsed economy and a sharpely divided population.  Will the real backbone of the American armed forces—Trump deplorables—fight for an Establishment that hates its guts?  Will an economy drowning in debt and destroyed by corporate offshoring of investment and American middle class jobs and now by lockdowns that are destroying the remaining pieces of the middle class—small businesses—be able to sustain a conflict with nations more unified and free of external debt and unmanageable internal debt?  If so, it will be the first time in history.

How long will Trump deplorables remain docile when they realize that they are being exterminated by being cut off from equal rights, constitutional protection, employment and avenues of success?

As for the Establishment itself, when will its arrogance and confidence be shaken by the realization that it cannot control the anti-white, anti-American ideologues it has created and is itself facing the situation faced by Kerensky, the Brownshirts, and the Chinese Communist Party when Mao unleashed the cultural revolution?  Having empowered hatred and having let it out of the bottle, the Establishment itself will be destroyed by it. 

Who will the Establishment appeal to when the revolution turns on them?  What answer will the Establishment have when they are asked the question Bolsheviks put to Kerensky:  “Who chose you?”

    We all pretty much cannot deny the US is a corporation. Through many years, China has invested heavily in US Treasuries. What Is the feasibility that China now owns the corporate US and THAT is what is causing this unbelievable dichotomy.

    1. I don’t. Have you ever listened to The Raw Deal, by the way? You seem to know nothing of who I am and what I am about. You are either ignorant or corrupt.

      1. Will, before you get the hammer & throwing knives out, I think there is more to my censoring dilemma than we may know. For the integrity of future post, this may be one of those “opportunities to learn” for now I have a 2nd comment not visible. I answered Jim’s response to my previous comment earlier yesterday morning (5-ish). Not seeing the comment made me re-evaluate the entire mess. I think I may have found the culprit censoring me. For the record I’ve been following Jim since The Raw Deal was The Real Deal and further with Kevin Barrett. and have a 9 book Fetzer library! and I’m not ignorant or corrupt, I’m an admirer! So to the issue at hand, I started using another browser a couple of weeks ago and have been using it intermittently with Chrome. Thus, I don’t think the “Dissenter” browser I’ve been using is compatible with communicating on Jim’s web-site. I’m using Chrome for this dialogue and pretty sure I used it with my 1st comment to Jim about censoring. When Jim moderate’s this comment that should be the end of the matter (cause he actually got it! lol) and of course I apologize for pointing that nasty censoring finger at you/him! Sincerely…..Craig/Hyperloose

  2. Is this America’s requiem?
    If so, WE ALLOWED IT!

    Neil Young Lyrics

    “It’s A Dream”

    In the morning when I wake up and listen to the sound
    Of the birds outside on the roof
    I try to ignore what the paper says
    And I try not to read all the news
    And I’ll hold you if you had a bad dream
    And I hope it never comes true
    ‘Cause you and I been through so many things together
    And the sun starts climbing the roof

    It’s a dream
    Only a dream
    And it’s fading now
    Fading away
    It’s only a dream
    Just a memory without anywhere to stay

    The Red River stills flows through my home town
    Rollin’ and tumblin’ on its way
    Swirling around the old bridge pylons
    Where a boy fishes the morning away
    His bicycle leans on an oak tree
    While the cars rumble over his head
    An aeroplane leaves a trail in an empty blue sky
    And the young birds call out to be fed

    It’s a dream
    Only a dream
    And it’s fading now
    Fading away
    It’s only a dream
    Just a memory without anywhere to stay

    An old man walks along on the sidewalk
    Sunglasses and an old Stetson hat
    The four winds blow the back of his overcoat away
    As he stops with the policeman to chat
    And a train rolls out of the station
    That was really somethin’ in its day
    Picking up speed on the straight prairie rails
    As it carries the passengers away

    It’s gone
    Only a dream
    And it’s fading now
    Fading away
    Only a dream
    Just a memory without anywhere to stay

    It’s a dream
    Only a dream
    And it’s fading now
    Fading away
    It’s only a dream
    Just a memory without anywhere to stay

    It’s a dream
    Only a dream
    And it’s fading now
    Fading away

  3. From Stone……

    LOTS of people are spreading BULLSHIT about how Trump will be back and that the military will take action. SORRY, THAT IS NOT THE CASE. IT IS, INSTEAD, A BOLSHEVIK PSY OP THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE BEFORE. SEE THIS:
    The Bolsheviks already ran this psy op very successfully 100 years ago. They caused the public to do nothing until their takeover was complete by feeding false hopes that there was a movement within the military and well placed white hats to stop the communist takeover. It worked then. Don’t let it work again.

    Here is proof this has been done before, and is happening RIGHT NOW, in the United States. There are no good factions of the military that will save us.


  4. Has anyone noticed Joe’s eyes have become slits?, I think he’s turning japanese, I think he’s turning japanese, I really think so. Remember that tune from “the Vapors”? Trumpster and Melania jetting off into the Florida sunset. 25,000 troops come in and wall off the seat of Gov’t. Creepy Joe and his scumstration records the inauguration before the 20th. No one there seems all that jazzed. Hmmm… I think it’s brilliant, Trump the whipping boy fades away. In his absence of no one to flog, they don’t know what to do with their whips. So they start cracking them pushing deprograming for Trump supporters on the Simulated New Network. And the Demolition Party digs their grave deeper and deeper. The brutally unpopular things they will try to cram through will just prove how evil they really are. Every Trump trader will show their true colors thinking they are safe now that Kumal-over-hur will be the prez. “Weekend at Bernie’s” Bernie looks more alive than Biden is.

  5. Always nice to get Stone’s slap in the face reality. Although, I prefer the drug of hope, here’s his take:

    DO NOT GET Q’ed AGAIN. Not even under a different brand name.

    The National Guard is not leaving DC until February 16.

    Ok, so I’ll put that straight. Originally they were supposed to leave today. And then that order came down. And now they are not leaving until mid February. CONCLUSION: They are permanent. The communists know they have ZERO approval, so to be safe they have to have a pile of troops protecting them. Why THE HELL is the National Guard accepting this? They ought to just shoot the bastards they are there to protect and solve America’s problems. It is UNBELIEVABLE they could be there not doing exactly that. And it is spooky to see them do nothing but enforce a coup.

    THANK OBAMA, Obama was the one who corrupted the military and Jared made damn good and sure Trump did not repair the damage. This takeover is tribal. NEVER FORGET THAT. Gosh, they are protecting the HELL out of DC when the real problem is elsewhere, guaranteed to be no more than 20 miles from 95 percent of Americans, no matter where they live. It is the LOCAL tribe members that controlled the machines to steal this election and corrupted all the courts. It is the LOCAL tribe that handed out sharpies. THAT is where the root of the problem is.
    If the National Guard took out DC, they’d only remove the puppets. But that would be one hell of a good start. That might set the locals back 30 years, but they’d be back. In the end, the problem must be solved at the local level, why not make that first?

  6. FORGET Q — Q WHO? What has believing in Q ever done for anyone? How has Q helped us in any way? Has there ever been a moment when Q said, here, here’s what you can do to help us drain the Swamp, here, here are some tools we can provide you with to help you save your country? Don’t helpers generally actually help the helpees in some tangible way? “Oh, baby, you don’t have to learn to walk, we’ll walk for you!” Haven’t they always told us to sit back, order some popcorn, enjoy the show, don’t do anything, don’t make waves, because we have the situation well in hand and wait patiently while we doing nothing but give you unattributed pep screeds? In short, have they ever said anything that came true and that helped us? If, rather, their goal was to make a lot of people do nothing but wait for Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, they have certainly done that. As is being said by wiser hands on this site, if the people don’t save ourselves, we’re all doomed.

  7. Been following you a long time Paul. Your insight has always been appreciated.

    From my archive of quotes:

    “In the United States «conspiracy theory» is the name given to explanations that differ from those that serve the ruling oligarchy…”
    Paul Craig Roberts

    And now one man’s freedom fighters (Trumpsters) is another’s terrorists. :-/

  8. Jim Stone:

    Do not believe anyone who says “trust the plan” or “there is hope.”

    The only hope is the American gun owner, which will do nothing. I just hope there are a few people that want to do a little well directed long range house cleaning. Anyway, consider this:

    The communists have infiltrated America so badly that to enforce the stolen election they were able to shut down every court, every governor (that mattered), every media outlet, even Newsmax (which may be pumping B.S. to re-legitimize themselves now that the coup is complete, so it does not matter) – AND NOW AMERICA IS HOPING THE MILITARY WILL SAVE US, WHEN OBAMA PURGED EVERY LAST AMERICAN LOYALIST OUT OF THE LEADERSHIP AND TRUMP DID NOTHING TO FIX THAT BECAUSE JARED WAS HIS PRIMARY ADVISOR. Dream on, the military will do NOTHING.

    Rather than let spurious “hopium” drug you into inaction, GET MOVING AND AT LEAST BUG OUT OR PREPARE TO BUG OUT THE MOMENT THE POWER GOES OUT, if the power goes out it will be one message: TIME IS UP.

    Things are going to be moving very quickly very soon, communists smash it down QUICK and many many many of them in various positions have called for the destruction of anyone who refuses to accept the official lie.

  9. I think what the best we could do is to point out the dodgy things that have been done, so the public become aware and we win what Alex Jones calls the info war. Alex Jones beat James Fetzer -bitchute n this one, “Trump stuff”. But Jim is better than Alex on “truther stuff”.

  10. Jim, you have been played. As I keep saying, you voted for Obama, who you hate now. Trump mad Giuliani his lawyer. Giuliani was a 911 (9/11 for you) crook.

    1. Bill, Jim’s prediction failed in the end, but he wasn’t played. There was a lot of disinfo, to be sure–Pieczenik’s should have been obvious from the start–but too many credible people claimed to have seen the evidence that the military had the goods on the Dominion operation. In the end, it was about the gun being loaded but the trigger not pulled. Someday (hopefully soon) the truth will come out. In the meantime, we are headed for dark times.

      1. William, Thanks for those thoughtful comments. Maybe we haven’t been played after all. Check this out. Stunning if true!
        The Real Plan

      2. And if you like the sound of that, you might also like this. Maybe Trump pulled it off after all!
        From UNITED STATES to United States

      3. From a friend:
        This Explains Why The Departing President Left in Air Force One! That Never Happened Before!
        Have you listened to 20210119 – BardsFM, By and For the People – 20210119 – YouTube?
        The banker in this “audio only” video has the same data.

      4. Alas, Jim, I haven’t seen a lot of documentation of the dissolution of the American Corporation. Does some nice judge have that hanging over his mantelpiece next to the head of George Washington? And those fringed flags, wow that makes me feel a lot safer knowing Donald Trump stood in front of them while selling out America.

      5. Take a deep breath, Joseph, and the truth shall emerge. Perhaps not all at once, as you might prefer, but gradually over time. I believe its outlines are emerging now, even if dimly.

      6. According to those in the vid, the inauguration was not live. According to Ward it was all pre-recorded…he watched it at 7 AM in Spain.

        Roberts did not swear Biden in.

      7. Apologies…they corrected it and said Roberts did swear Biden in but some black woman swore in Harris.

        Is it all hopium?…pray and keep patient.

      8. If Ward saw the inauguration at 7 AM his time, he should have recorded it and uploaded a clip to Bitchute immediately. That would have been proof.

      9. MikeN:
        ((If Ward saw the inauguration at 7 AM his time, he should have recorded it and uploaded a clip to Bitchute immediately. That would have been proof.))

        Ask Ward.

      10. Hmmm, maybe we should take Q’s advice and feel absolutely secure in doing absolutely nothing.

      11. THE Kraken was Sydney Powell’s terminology, not Trump’s…let us get the facts straight there, 789….

      12. “Under military code 11.3”

        11X3 = 33 That is their infamous hoax code to let their fellow masons know it’s all BS…

        Trump Says He’s Mailing $200 to 33 Million Seniors Before Election

        Bill Gates “predicted” a super-virus pandemic breaking out in China that could kill 33 million 

        Trump campaign put together a list of 33 false or misleading statements Biden made

        World Health Organization confirms Coronavirus in 33 countries

        Gov. Newsom details 33 California coronavirus cases

        Coronavirus cases in New York state increases to 33 governor says 

        33,000 deaths in the U.S., according to Johns Hopkins University.

        O. J. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison

        The families of Brown and Goldman were awarded more than $33 million dollars from Simpson

        They are ALL in on it….

      13. Bill de Berg, you are wrong, Jim& Will were wrong. You are just making excuses.
        Jim is very good on 911, the best.
        He is good on Sandy Hooke, etc.
        But Trump said the news is fake, then takes photo opportunities with fake shooting victims, Trump is and was fake, he never did the giant back flip Jim wanted. Trump hired Giuliani as his lawyer, now Jim knows 911 was an inside job, and Guiliani was one of the insiders, and he was Trump’s lawyer. Larry Silverstein was Trump’s mate.

  11. An interesting development:

    Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Announces Sanctions on Pompeo and Others

    Over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States, out of their selfish political interests and prejudice and hatred against China and showing no regard for the interests of the Chinese and American people, have planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations. The Chinese government is firmly resolved to defend China’s national sovereignty, security and development interests. China has decided to sanction 28 persons who have seriously violated China’s sovereignty and who have been mainly responsible for such U.S. moves on China-related issues. They include Michael R. Pompeo, Peter K. Navarro, Robert C. O’Brien, David R. Stilwell, Matthew Pottinger, Alex M. Azar II, Keith J. Krach, and Kelly D. K. Craft of the Trump administration as well as John R. Bolton and Stephen K. Bannon. These individuals and their immediate family members are prohibited from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao of China. They and companies and institutions associated with them are also restricted from doing business with China.

    1. Typical one-side antagonist conversation in which you engage rather consistently..
      Grow up and stop hiding as an ex-pat and support the country of your birth.
