Paul Craig Roberts, “The Empire of Lies”

Paul Craig Roberts

[Editor’s note: Paul Craig Roberts, whom I admire, missed the boat when he asserts that Putin is a globalist. My take would be that, while he may have been a member of the World Economic Forum years ago, he has long since recognized it’s aspirations are inconsistent with nation-states and democratic republics. Those who doubt must read his “Empire of Lies” speech, which lays out explicitly why he had to conduct this “special military operation” into Ukraine. I regard Putin as the only true statesman astride the world’s stage today.]

In the past two years we have seen that the Western peoples are more badly and more corruptly led than any people in previous history.  The peoples were deceived about a “Covid pandemic” that was entirely an orchestration. Yes, the virus existed, but the “pandemic” was orchestrated by a PCR (no relation) test that produces up to 97% false positives and has been discontinued from use for this reason.  The large number of Covid cases were pure fantasy based on false positives.   The number of deaths were orchestrated by giving hospitals large financial incentives to report deaths as Covid deaths, regardless of cause.  The fear generated by fabricated numbers of cases and deaths drove  people to accept injections of they knew not what.  It turns out that the untested “vaccine” is a larger threat to health and life than Covid itself, and the death and injury rates mount as the “vaccine” does its deadly work in the bodies of injected people.  It remains to be seen what the long term death rate of the “vaccine” will be.

All of the other Covid measures did much harm and no good.  The masks proved to be a cause of illness, not a preventer of illness.  The lockdowns disrupted production, destroyed jobs, businesses, and supply chains, and are the cause of the current sharp increase in prices. 

The Western world, full of its totally unjustified arrogant hubris, thinking of itself as “exceptional” and entitled to world hegemony, turned a deaf ear to Russia’s offer of a mutual security pact.  The idiot that serves as US President, the idiot that serves as US Secretary of State, and the idiot that serves as NATO Secretary General, all declared that, despite Russia’s announced red line, they would continue to expand military bases on Russia’s borders.  

When I say “stupid,” I mean stupid.  You have to be stupid to provoke a war that you are helpless to do anything about.

Oh, but we can, you say, the sanctions.  The sanctions are falling on Germany, Europe, and the US.  The price of natural gas in Europe has exploded upward. The oil price has hit the moon.  Food prices, mineral prices (Russia is a major exporter of both) are rising.  So the dumbshit Western “leaders” have added to the inflation from the lockdowns the inflation from the sanctions, and Russia has yet to impose counter sanctions.  Imagine if Russia were to turn off the gas flows to Europe. Europe is dependent on Russia for 46% of its gas.  The CEO of a European grid operator said if Russia turns off the gas, the EU would have to disconnect German industry from the grid.  In short, the entirety of German industry would be shut down.

What the idiot West has done with sanctions is to shoot itself in both feet and both kneecaps, and in the head.

Everywhere we look we see ridiculous threats directed at Russia.  The Danish presstitutes, the idiot Sean Hannity, and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham are calling for the assassination of President Putin, and they are not deplatformed. Notice this:  I cannot use a gender pronoun without risk of being shutdown, but I can call for the assassination of Putin and receive kudos.

An idiot named David Swanson calls for a “peace march” by thousands of Europeans into the Ukrainian firing lines.  This low grade moron wants to repeat the Children’s Crusade of 1212 when Stephen of Cloyes claimed to have a letter from Jesus to the King of France and led 30,000 children into Saracen hands.  The Idiot Swanson, wants to repeat this feat one thousand years later.

Another blustering Western idiot says Putin will be captured and put on trial as a war criminal at the international court at the Hague.  This, of course, will happen after Ukraine conquers Russia.  It is extraordinary that Westerners would speak of Russian war crimes after the massive US and European war crimes in Serbia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and Syria.  If the West continues its precipitous decline, there will be a war crime tribunal held by Russia for George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, all the American zionist neoconservatives, and a number of UK and European supporters of Washington’s war crimes such as Tony Blair.  

The Western blusterings and imprecations against Russia indicate the impotence and irrelevance of the Western world.  Of all the absurdities, unless Joe Lauria’s report on Consortium News is a joke, the cake of mindless threats comes from the International Federation of Felines.  The Federation is going to bring Russia down by banning the import of any cat bred in Russia “regardless of which organization issued its pedigree.”  

The Cat Federation says how “shocked and horrified” it is “that the army of the Russian Federation invaded the Republic of Ukraine and started a war. Many innocent people died, many more are wounded and hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are forced to flee their homes to save their lives. We can all witness the destruction and chaos caused by this unprecedented act of aggression.”

This really is unimaginable.  For 8 years Ukraine has been shelling the Donbass Russians killing thousands and maiming many more.  And not a peep from the Cat Federation.  No concern for the Donbass cats blown to pieces by Ukrainian artillery pounding the villages and towns of the Donbass Russians.  Not a peep from the well paid CIA assets at the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, BBC and elsewhere in the Western whore media.  

What does this ban by the Cat Federation do, assuming it has any legal force and can do anything, and that this is not a joke article by Joe Lauria?

It can stop Americans, Canadians, and Europeans from acquiring a Russian Blue Cat from Russia, but not from breeders in the US, Canada, or Europe.

The Cat Federation has demonstrated the total impotence of the West, a rapidly collapsing Sodom & Gomorrah.   To use the language of a US neoconservative, if Russia wants to pick up some NATO member and throw the country against the wall to show who is boss, no one can do anything about it.

Despite Russia’s military hegemony, the Kremlin could piss away its dominance.  According to his recent speech, Putin is committed to globalism. Reportedly, he was in the World Economic Forum’s leadership program.  He goes to the meetings in Davos and gives speeches.  Apparently, it has not occurred to Putin that Russian sovereignty is inconsistent with globalism.  They are mutually inconsistent. Claus Schwab, the WEF head, is a clear cut Nazi.  So why does Putin like the WEF Nazi but not the Ukrainian ones?

I think the Kremlin still has a lot to learn.  Russia thought, mistakenly, that with the Communist ideological challenge to the West over and done with, everyone could be friends. They overlooked that being friends with Washington means being a puppet state.  Putin was unwilling for Russia to be an American puppet. He informed us of that fact at the Munich Security Conference in 2007.  Washington rewarded him with Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia, which established the narrative of Russian Invasion when Putin returned from the Beijing Olympics and defeated and conquered Georgia, then handed Georgia back its sovereignty and withdrew his forces.  Despite Russian withdrawal, the West created the narrative that Putin was rebuilding the Soviet Empire that the US had dismantled.

Putin’s continued resistance to being an American puppet brought him Washington’s overthrow of the Ukrainian government and installation of a puppet government that was unable to control the Bandera Nazi elements that rapidly organized militias and began terrorizing the Russian population in Ukraine, leading to the votes by Crimea and the Donbass republics to be rejoined with Russia their traditional country.  Putin took Crimea back to save Russia’s Black Sea naval base, but he refused the Donbass Russians, thereby tolerating an eight year war.  Finally, to stop this war, the Russians, rebuffed by the West and the Ukraine puppet government, have sent in troops to solve the problem unsolvable by diplomacy.

The West has decided to get out of Russia’s way militarily and to fight Russia with accusations and deprecations.  The West can win the war of words because it controls the narrative.

Claes Ryn, one of the very few remaining American intellectuals recently wrote in Humanitas that human action is less based in reason and rationality than in “the intense passion of the moment–hatred, fury, wild abandon, sheer desperation, boundless ambition,” and that in a world of nuclear weapons this is a massive liability.

Recently, Glenn Greenwald, one of the last remaining American journalists, said the same thing, which I quoted in a recent article.  In other words, the reality we face is that our weapons of destruction are becoming independent of rational control as reason is dying in the Western world.  

In Western universities today, especially American and British ones, reason is a “white racist construct” used to oppress “people of color,” that is, non-whites. As reason is reduced to a tool of racist oppression, how can it function in regulating human behavior?  As its use implies racism, reason is abandoned.  Just try to find any reason in the West’s response to Covid and in the West’s response to Russia’s security concerns.  There is none

The West today is a world without reason.  This places the current Western world far back into history  when witchcraft and other such substituted for reason.  Reason is so far gone in the West that the Cat Federation thinks it is punishing Russia by prohibiting Western peoples from having Russian cats!  

In other words, we have reached the mindless stage in our collapsing civilization.

What can be done about it?  

We have on the one hand the horrified Western liberal, progressive, left who see a great crime in Russia’s defense of Russians, and on the other hand we have the blind anger from patriotic flag-waving conservatives, such as Hannity and Lindsey, calling for the assassination of the President of Russia.

Putin should take notice. His assassination is possible because of his own toleration of pro-American elements in his own government and US-financed Russian media and NGO organizations committed to regime change in Russia.  Apparently, Putin thinks he is proving his commitment to democracy by permitting freedom of operation of  Western-financed groups committed to the destabilization of Russia and perhaps  his assassination.

The Russian desire to be part of the West indicates a country that is disconnected from reality.  Unless Russia develops better comprehension of the unreason that confronts her, Russia might yet have to choose between nuclear war or becoming  another Washington puppet state.     

It is March and time for my quarterly request for your donations.  This website is carried by monthly donors.  I remind other users on a quarterly basis that they need to support the endangered species of people who tell the truth.  I look forward to your support. I remind you that truth is not something you can take for granted. In the Western world truth is almost non-existent.

  1. I’ve been listening to Trump lately on various venues and I could not be more disgusted with his take on Ukraine and Zelensky. I have no idea in what world he exists, but it’s not mine. Is anyone else here as upset as myself? Simply looks to me that he is once again getting behind the Zionists.

  2. My thoughts: Putin is committed to a form of globalism. Just not the one of our Wannabe Masters, in their NWO-WEF gulag. But the one on the other side of this pending Conclusion to the Morality Play that we have been engaged in. Bringing both sides of The Process together, in a Grand Synthesis. Individualism vs. Collectivism, into a Cooperative based on the Dignity of Man as the ‘spiritual beings having a human experience’ that we are. And Religions vs. Atheism, giving way to the higher level of pure Spiritualism, reflecting he above-mentioned true, underlying nature of Humanity.
    Are we capable of terrible things? Yes. Does that not then reflect our true natures? No. That reflects the fact that Life – as we know it, in this 3D realm, this construct, this matrix – is a classroom. Life being a school. And the purpose being to graduate. Not to get bogged down in the lessons to be learned in it. As we now face a degree of graduation. Into (the spiritual equivalent of) graduate school. Having learned our lessons in (the spiritual equivalent of) elementary school. Or not, as the individual case may be. But which incarnate souls will not hold the rest of the class back from their Graduation Exercise. Time to move on. For every ‘piece of the continent, part of the main’. In whichever direction they have chosen, by the exercise of their free will, to go.

  3. Good article except for one major point often lacking in such doom and gloom narratives that limits its total perspective and thus usefulness. That point is: No one is a Washington Puppet State. Most nations, including Washington and the United States itself, are puppet states of the New World Order/Rothschilds-Rockefellers-Soros cabal, some under the guise of being “Washington Puppet States”, while Washington (and its military) has become merely an enforcement arm of the New World Order serving at its bidding (along with the Ukraine, a major NWO center apparently). The Rothschilds/Fed/Bank of England print, control, and regulate our money without audit and use it to bribe and blackmail all our leaders in government, media, politics, and business — and indeed most leaders on the planet, with geopolitical-economic ends in mind. Hence, the continual escalating madness, all based on their principle of “Order Out Of Chaos”: our chaos, their ensuing order. (Anyone here been feeling a little chaotic lately?) One of the few nations that may not POSSIBLY be totally under the control of the New World Order (along with Syria and Iran) is Russia. Putin, being a former spy, seems to have a basic Russian facility for playing both ends against the middle, both sides of the chessboard, and it is to be remembered that Russia kicked the Illuminati out of their nation years ago, only to fall prey to them bigtime during the institution of the slave system known as communism (with the Eastern Banker Bagmen as the secret beneficiaries). Until we (and he) destroy the evil cabal that controls most nations, and take back the printing and control of our own money, we are in the hands of these insane pathological NWO Satanists and their diabolical heartless divide-and-conquer genocidal operations. I am sure Putin knows this. So he is fighting them while appearing to be serving them, or both leading to one (or the other). Let’s hope he has a positive endgame in mind (for Russia and us), and meanwhile spread the awakening truths as far and wide as we can ourselves. Our future depends on it.

    1. Added the following (much needed) note to the article: [Editor’s note: Paul Craig Roberts, whom I admire, missed the boat when he asserts that Putin is a globalist. My take would be that, while he may have been a member of the World Economic Forum years ago, he has long since recognized it’s aspirations are inconsistent with nation-states and democratic republics. Those who doubt must read his “Empire of Lies” speech, which lays out explicitly why he had to conduct this “special military operation” into Ukraine. I regard Putin as the only true statesman astride the world’s stage today.]

    2. Brilliant comment JFT. The US, INC. is doubtless under control of the NWO, the Rothschilds or whatever Zionist entity one wishes to call it. BUT, although on its way out (and gold and silver are up, up up), the dollar is still the world reserve currency and that gives the US, INC. quite an edge for now. Putin’s not having it and I say, as Jim, good for him. He’s a masterful statesman. He stood down NATO and NATO ruled against that Zelensky puppet.

      I still have my doubts this was written by PCR…just too sophomoric and not to his level of intellect. But I would suggest even if a ghost writer was used, it would still need his approval…..and that concerns me.

  4. I’m not sure who wrote this article. Was it Paul Roberts or Jim Beam? Wow, that’s some serious name-calling and colorful language to spice the rhetoric. I notice that I had to grab my wallet at the end or I might find it mostly empty.

    Let’s note that maybe Biden and Pelosi’s response has been muted because both their children have made a lot of money from Ukraine. Hunter never forgets the good ole 10% for the Big Guy.

    Biden plays rough and tough in Ukraine:–dj2-CY

      1. I assume you saw my graphic on another comment. There were 4 kids with do-nothing jobs in Ukraine. All sons of Democrats. The looters gang. Proud parents all, I’m sure!

      2. Don, I would not assume anything when it comes to the WordPress comment system. I would almost guarantee I watch it closer than anyone and I miss comments all the time. In any case, it bears repeating. The more exposure these creatures get, the better.

  5. Idiot, morons, stupid…does that sound like it’s from the mind of PCR? Not to me.
    PCR or not, I see no indication Putin wants anything to do with western society. Every time I hear Putin speak, he puts the western intellect to shame. WHY would he lower himself? He most definitely enjoys capitalism…but democracy….that’s another story.
    Could be I have missed something.
