Paul Craig Roberts: “There Is A Conspiracy… And It’s Against The American People”

In the United States “conspiracy theory” is the name given to explanations that differ from those that serve the ruling oligarchy, the establishment or whatever we want to call those who set and control the agendas and the explanations that support the agendas…

Debt Based System Running Out of Steam -Paul Craig Roberts and Greg Hunter 

Image result for pics of national debt disaster

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, sees trouble for the economy. Dr. Roberts explains, “This image of a strong stock market is based essentially on debt, borrowing and debt, money creation and debt.  It’s a false signal that shows prosperity, and it’s not really there. . . . So, during a period of time when there has been no interest income on peoples’ savings in the form of bonds or CDs, there has also been no growth in Social Security income.  So, the elderly, or the largest block of them, are hard pressed.  The young come out of school with student debt and no good jobs.  A large percentage can’t find sufficient employment to support an independent existence.  They can’t possibly pay off the loans.  So, wherever you look, you see a debt based system that’s running out of steam.”

Dr. Roberts, who holds a PhD in economics, says this is why retail is getting killed. Dr. Roberts contends, “A lot of people blame this on internet shopping and that people don’t want to be bothered to go to a mall.  The mall experience is old and outdated, and they would rather sit in front of a computer and order online.  This is the explanation people give who don’t want to see a problem.  An alternative explanation is that people have run out of any discretionary income with which to purchase things.  When you consider mortgage payments, car payments, credit card payments and food, there’s no money left to drive consumer discretionary spending.”

Dr. Roberts says the Federal Reserve basically prints money and intervenes in all markets to prop them up or, as in the case of gold and silver, hold prices down. Dr. Roberts says, “It looks like the whole system is rigged.  People don’t understand this, and you can’t find any discussion about this in the financial press or in the economic profession. . . . Since the Fed has unlimited amounts of money, it can create endless amounts of money by pushing a computer button.  They don’t have to worry about losses.  So, they can support or rig all markets.”

Washington Post Backlash: Black Agenda Report, Counterpunch, and Paul Craig Roberts Join Us in Second Demand Letter Retraction and Apology for Defamatory “Propaganda” Story — naked capitalism

More sites team up to take on the Washington Post and the new “Russian propaganda/fake news” McCarthyism.

The Washington Post apparently hoped it had successfully tamped down the controversy over a story that defamed Naked Capitalism and many other reputable sites. As the letter below shows, that is not the case.

Three other publlishers, Black Agenda Report, Counterpunch, and Paul Craig Roberts, have joined us in again calling for the Post to retract the article by Craig Timberg, Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say, issue a prominent apology, and give us an equivalent opportunity to respond.

Truthdig and Naked Capitalism both sent letters to the Post earlier this month demanding the article be retracted. The Post instead appended an “Editor’s Note” at the top of the now-in-the-archives story and sent Truthdig’s and our attorney letters saying why the Post thought this response was sufficient.

The Columbia Journalism Review, the media watchdog FAIR, and many journalists on Twitter gave the “Editor’s Note” a thumbs down. Perhaps more important from the Post’s perspective, its failure to take adequate steps to remedy the damage done has led more and more of the defamed websites to combine forces.

As you will see below, Black Agenda Report, Counterpunch, and Paul Craig Roberts have joined us. We’ve also had five other sites say they would participate in a lawsuit against the Post, and one other prominent site is seriously interested. Mind you, we’ve gotten this level of interest despite doing almost no outreach…

Paul Craig Roberts 12-5-16… “The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs” — Kauilapele’s Blog

As in the last post, Paul Craig Roberts also concludes that the list of 200 was likely constructed via the CIA, NED, and George Soros. Anyway, an overall positive view from Paul Craig (Roberts). “The ruling oligarchy and their presstitute media have become desperate now that they are losing control over explanations and Americans’ minds. […]

World On Brink After Obama Activates Missile Shield, Prepares Weapons For Space

September 23, 2016 By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

In one of the most grim and foreboding reports ever issued by the Security Council (SC), Kremlin experts today are warning that the entire world now “stands on the brink” after the Obama regime, yesterday, stood alone against all humanity and singlehandedly blocked the United Nations resolution against sending weapons into space, and an hour later activated for the first time in history its “missile shield” on Russia’s border. [Note:Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

With the Obama regime rejecting the United Nations “last chance for peace” and activating its missile shield against the Federation, this report says, President Putin stated “this is not a defense system—this  is part of US nuclear strategic potential brought onto a periphery, in this case, Eastern Europe is such periphery and yet another step to rock international security” while the Chairman of the State Duma’s defense committee,Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, warned “they [the Obama regime] are moving to the firing line–this is not just 100; it’s 200, 300, 1,000% aimed against us”.

Sirens Wail As Russia Awakens To Full Combat Alert, NATO Alliance Begins To Shatter – WhatDoesItMean

At 6:00 am (3:00 GMT) this morning, the Kremlin was awakened to blaring sirens with the Ministry of Defense (MoD) issuing the following statement an hour later: “Today, another unannounced inspection begun in accordance with a decision by the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Forces of the Southern [military district], as well as parts of the forces of the Western and Central military districts, the Northern Fleet, the High Command of the Aerospace Forces, the command of the Airborne Troops are set on full combat readiness starting 7:00 Moscow time.” [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

 

Fears that President Putin, in his role as Supreme Commander, would take this fearful action have been widely speculated upon in the Kremlin this past week as many in the West have warned that Russia is teetering on the brink of “all out war” with Ukraine and some American publications have even begun issuing World War III “alerts.

To the exact mobilization of these tens-of-thousands of Federation soldiers, airmen and sailors, as well as their strategic weapons and equipment, rather than a war Ukraine, they appear to be related to a massive foreign operation, most likely in the Levant War Zone, while defending the Western Front against any surprise NATO counterattack, according to various “combat action bulletins” being sent out by the MoD.

For anyone in the West (especially America) attempting to fully understand these grave war movements the Federation is making today, they must first realize that they have been lied to by their corrupt elite leaders about the true purpose of the wars in Syria and Iraq, and that have nothing at all to do with “human rights”, but, instead, is all about pipelines—and as, perhaps, best explained by Brazilian journalist Pepe Escobar who last year wrote:

Syria is an energy war. With the heart of the matter featuring a vicious geopolitical competition between two proposed gas pipelines, it is the ultimate Pipelinestan  war, the term I coined long ago for the 21st century imperial energy battlefields.

It all started in 2009, when Qatar proposed to Damascus the construction of a pipeline from its own North Field – contiguous with the South Pars field, which belongs to Iran – traversing Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria all the way to Turkey, to supply the EU.

Damascus, instead, chose in 2010 to privilege a competing project, the $10 billion Iran-Iraq-Syria, also know as «Islamic pipeline». The deal was formally announced in July 2011, when the Syrian tragedy was already in motion. In 2012, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed with Iran.

Until then, Syria was dismissed, geo-strategically, as not having as much oil and gas compared to the GCC petrodollar club. But insiders already knew about its importance as a regional energy corridor. Later on, this was enhanced with the discovery of serious offshore oil and gas potential.

Iran for its part is an established oil and gas powerhouse. Persistent rumblings in Brussels – still unable to come up with a unified European energy policy after over 10 years – did account for barely contained excitement over the Islamic pipeline; that would be the ideal strategy to diversify from Gazprom. But Iran was under US and EU nuclear-related sanctions.

That ended up turning into a key strategic reason, at least for the Europeans, for a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear dossier; a «rehabilitated» (to the West) Iran is able to become a key source of energy to the EU.

Yet, from the point of view of Washington, a geostrategic problem lingered: how to break the Tehran-Damascus alliance. And ultimately, how to break the Tehran-Moscow alliance.”

 

 

Key to the entire Obama-Clinton strategy of turning Syria and Iraq into a war-torn hellscape in order to benefit their corrupt Gulf State and Saudi Arabians allies, and by extension keep the Petrodollar System from outright collapsing, was Turkey—without whose strategic help thousands of Islamic terror fighters would not have been able to flood into this region, or the millions of war armaments secreted through Turkey’s border by the CIA, and that they had stolen from Libya been able to get their either.

With Turkish President Erdogan, however, this past July, fearing that the Obama-Clinton master plan included the establishment of a separate Kurdish state on Turkey’s southern border, he turned to President Putin—and whom (President Erdogan) the Obama regime retaliated against by attempting to have him killed in coup, but that Federation secret forces were able to prevent.

 

 

Though Turkey is a member of the NATO alliance, the Obama-Clinton attempted coup against President Erdogan proved to be the “straw that broke the camels back” with Turkish military forces combining with Russian airpower this past week to launch an invasion of Syria to battle the US-sponsored, and supported Kurdish forces—and whom, yesterday, US Vice President Biden ordered to immediately retreat to the east of the Euphrates river.

And as Turkish forces continue to advance on these US-supported Kurdish forces, President Erdogan further enraged the Obama regime yesterday by raising the possibility that Russian forces could soon be allowed to use the Incirlik Air Base where American atomic weapons are being stored—and that NATO member Germany has now said it may pull its forces out of completely.

 

 

To what the Obama regimes reaction to this sudden turn of events that is leaving its Middle East master plan in literal ashes, various MoD reports circulating in the Kremlin today present a very conflicting picture—with some of them noting that the American’s are planning for an “unthinkable war” against both Russia and China, but others noting the US Army recently stating that though a major war is coming, it doesn’t have the money to prepare for it.

Other MoD reports, however, do not believe these US Army statements pointing to last weeks Pentagon audit that found they could not account for $6.5 trillion—and that Russian intelligence analyst believe have been secretly put into resources unknown to the American people by the Obama regime as it prepares itself for global war.

Most critically being kept from the American public as its corrupt leaders push for total war, these MoD reports conclude, are the recent, and shocking, reports detailing how US defense contractors supporting Hillary Clinton are now telling their investors that “the Russian threat is great for business”—and who are being aided by an unprecedented massive propaganda campaign by the, likewise, Hillary Clinton supporting American mainstream press against Russia that former Reagan administration Secretary Paul Craig Roberts recently said about: “I should be hardened by now, but it never fails to astonish me that agents for the elite are willing to tell the most blatant and transparent lies.”
