Washington Has Appointed a President for Venezuela
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 28 Jan 2019

23 Jan 2018 – After listening since 2016 to the American presstitutes complain, without providing a mere scrap of evidence, of Russia meddling in US elections, a person would think that the last thing Washington would do would be to meddle in other countries’ elections. Washington now has gone far beyond mere meddling. It has declared that the elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, is no longer the Venezuelan president. President Trump elected by diktat the Venezuelan president: “Today, I am officially recognizing the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaido, as the Interim President of Venezuela.

Genocide of the Greek Nation
Paul Craig Roberts | Institute for Political Economy – TRANSCEND Media Service, 27 Aug 2018

21 Aug 2018 – The political and media cover-up of the genocide of the Greek Nation began yesterday (August 20) with European Union and other political statements announcing that the Greek Crisis is over. What they mean is that Greece is over, dead, and done with. It has been exploited to the limit, and the carcass has been thrown to the dogs.

The United States Is the Only Remaining Colonial Power
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 6 Aug 2018

30 Jul 2018 – The US government has never allowed independent governments in Latin America. Every time people elect a government that represents them instead of US economic interests, Washington overthrows it. Currently, Washington is trying to overthrow the governments of Venezuela and Nicaragua and has bought off the Ecuadorian government with oil purchases and the usual personal bribes.

Political Insanity and the Nuclear Posture Review: Washington Threatens America and the World
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts – Global Research, 12 Feb 2018

8 Feb 2018 – The other ominous development is the just released US Nuclear Posture Review, which calls nuclear weapons “usable,” legitimizes their first use, and sets the stage for spending trillions of dollars acquiring more nuclear weapons when massive public needs go unmet and 10 percent of the existing US arsenal is sufficient to destroy all life on earth.

Plunder Capitalism
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Dec 2017

4 Dec 2917 – What we are witnessing is the complete looting of America and the entirety of the West. While the Western World collapses, the insouciant, submissive people sit there sucking their thumbs while they are being ruined. Nothing is left of the West except looters at work. This tax bill is an abomination, an act of brutal plunder. Its sponsors should be tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail, if not hung from a lamp post.

The Kennedy Assassination
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Oct 2017

28 Oct 2017 – The medical “evidence” that Kennedy was hit from behind was falsified by medical doctors under orders. Navy medical corpsmen who helped the Navy doctors with the autopsy testified that they were dismayed by orders from Admiral Calvin Galloway to ignore entry wounds from the front. One of the corpsmen testified “all at once I understood that my country was not much better than a third world country. From that point on in time, I have had no trust, no respect for the government.”

The Syrian Outcome Has Departed the Script
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Oct 2017

1 Oct 2017 – News agencies and writers should stop referring to ISIS as “terrorists” because it connotes an independence they do not have. These so-called “terrorists” are organized, financed, and armed by Washington and Washington’s vassals. Washington uses “terrorists” as a foreign policy tool. This has been going on for decades. Yes, sometimes the “terrorists” escape Washington’s control.

Supply-Side Economics Explained
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Jul 2017

17 Jul 2017 – What about the optimism in my 28-year old report? What has become of that? Unfortunately, optimism was destroyed by capitalist greed. Instead of productively restructuring the world economic system, capitalists looted it. With the Soviet collapse, the Russians’ belief during the Yeltsin era that now we were all on the same side facilitated the looting of Russia by the West. The collapse of socialism in Russia, China, and India, gave us “globalism,” that is the international arbitrage of wage rates.

The Resurrection of Armageddon
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 6 Mar 2017

This is the extreme risk to which the insane neoconservatives, the idiot liberal-progressive-left, the greedy military/security complex, and the aggressive generals have exposed life on earth. And the few voices warning of the risk are dismissed as “Russian agents.”

The Globalization of Environmental Degradation
George Abert and Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Feb 2017

13 Feb 2017 – Figuratively speaking, a ginormous asteroid is hurtling to a cataclysmic rendezvous with earth, but we are not supposed to notice. The asteroid is the rising threat from environmental degradation. Evidence is accumulating that environmental degradation is becoming global. We can either act responsibly by accepting the challenge or take refuge in denial and risk the consequences.

The Media Is Now the Political Opposition
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Jan 2017

By taking the role of the political opposition to Trump, the media has discredited itself as an honest critic on topics where Trump needs criticism, such as the environment and his tolerance of oppressive methods used by police. The presstitutes have ended all chance of improving Trump’s performance with reports and criticism. Trump needs moderating on the environment, on the police, and on the war on terror.

Murdering the Innocent in Order to Support the Lie
Paul Craig Roberts | Institute for Political Economy – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Jan 2017

It is clear beyond reasonable doubt that there was no real bombing at the Boston Marathon and that the alleged terrorist event, using crisis actors, was an orchestration designed to convince dumbshit Americans that they really were under a “Muslim threat.” The entire foreign policy of the United States in the 21st century is based on an orchestrated “Muslim threat.”

If You Are for Peace You Are a Russian Agent
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 12 Dec 2016

Speaking of fake news, the latest issue of the National Enquirer at the supermarket is giving the mainstream media a run for the money: “Castro’s Deathbed Confession: I Killed JFK. How I framed Oswald.” That’s almost as good as the fake news going around the presstitute media, such as the TV stations, the Washington Post, New York Times, Guardian, that the CIA has concluded that “Russian operatives covertly interfered in the election campaign in an attempt to ensure the Republican candidate’s victory.”

We Have Entered the Looting Stage of Capitalism: Germany’s Assault on the IMF
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 May 2016

The way Germany sees it, the IMF is supposed to lend Greece the money with which to repay the private German banks. Then the IMF is to be repaid by forcing Greece to reduce or abolish old age pensions, reduce public services and employment, and use the revenues saved to repay the IMF.

Syrian Elections Prove again That Washington and Its Presstitutes Lie through Their Teeth
Paul Craig Roberts – Dissident Voice, 25 Apr 2016

On April 14 2016, Syria held parliamentary elections at 7,000 polling stations, keeping the voting open an extra five hours to accommodate the massive turnout. Washington is angry, because Syria held elections before Washington had time to purchase its slate of politicians and Washington-funded NGOs to claim that Assad had stolen the election. Putin and Assad should take note that Washington still intends to overthrow the Syrian government and to install either a puppet or chaos as in Iraq and Libya.

Where Are Marx and Lenin When We Need Them?
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 18 Apr 2016

Marx and Lenin were ahead of their time. Marx wrote before offshoring of jobs and the financialization of the economy. Lenin presided over a communist revolution that jumped the gun by taking place in a country in which feudal elements still predominated over capitalism. Today capitalism is being financialized with the consequence that its productive power is being drained into the service of debt.

More Paris Puzzles
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Nov 2015

Why assume that the suicide bombers knew who was organizing the attack? There seems to be abundant evidence that ISIL is a US creation, one that is still dependent on US active or passive support—thus the conflict between Putin and Washington over attacking ISIL.

New Socialist Government Keeps Portuguese People under the Whip
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 16 Nov 2015

Portuguese Revolution Falls Far Short – In the Western world democracy has been decapitated. In Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Latvia, and the United States itself, there is no connection between the will of the people and the policies of the government. Only in tiny Iceland did the people prevail over the banks. Everywhere else the people are forced to pay for the gambling losses and leveraged debts of the financial sector.

The “War on Terror” Is the Hoax Foundation of the Police/Spy State
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Nov 2015

The “war on terror” was a hoax. Americans were deceived by policymakers, who are pursuing a hegemonic agenda. Who can possibly believe that a handful of Saudi Arabians acting without the support of any state and any intelligence service could outwit the entire apparatus of the American National Security State and inflict a humiliating defeat on the world’s only superpower?

9/11 Fourteen Years Later
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 14 Sep 2015

Millions of refugees from Washington’s wars are currently over-running Europe. Washington’s 14-year and ongoing slaughter of Muslims and destruction of their countries are war crimes for which the US government’s official 9/11 conspiracy theory was the catalyst.

The Social Cost of Capitalism
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 Aug 2015

11 Aug 2015 – Few, if any, corporations absorb the full cost of their operations. Corporations shove many of their costs onto the environment, the public sector, and distant third parties. For example, currently 3 million gallons of toxic waste water from a Colorado mine has escaped and is working its way down two rivers into Utah and Lake Powell. At least seven city water systems dependent on the rivers have been shut down.

EU’s Greek Debt Austerity Plan Rejected by the IMF
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Aug 2015

I have maintained that the imposition of austerity on Greece could not possibly work and that the only solution was to write down the debt and introduce reforms that loosen the hold the oligarchs have on the Greek economy. The current Greek government has taken the same position, and now the IMF has joined us.

Pentagon Concludes America Not Safe unless It Conquers the World
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 13 Jul 2015

The Pentagon report is sufficiently audacious in its hypocrisy to declare that Washington “supports the established institutions and processes dedicated to preventing conflict, respecting sovereignty, and furthering human rights.” This from the military of a government that has invaded, bombed, and overthrown 11 governments since the Clinton regime and is currently working to overthrow governments in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil, and Argentina.

Washington Politicizes Football
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Jun 2015

Whether or not FIFA decisions are tainted by bribery, the purpose of the “investigation” is to cast doubt on the decision to hold the World Cup in Russia. The World Cup is a global spectacle and conveys prestige on the host country. Washington intends to deny this prestige to Russia. That is what the “investigation” is about.

A Color Revolution for Macedonia
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 May 2015

22 May 2015 – During the Cold War Washington was concerned about communists fomenting street protests that they could turn into revolutions, with groomed politicians waiting in the wings to take over the new government, thus expanding the Soviet empire. Today this is precisely what Washington does. Why is Washington interested in controlling Macedonia?

It Is Time to Call Radio “Liberty” What It Is: Radio Gestapo Amerika
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 May 2015

6 May 2015 – Radio “Liberty” has always been a propaganda ministry. Formerly its propaganda was directed against the Soviet Union. Today it is directed against distinguished Americans who are known and respected for their allegiance to the truth. It has declared America’s most distinguished Russian scholar, Stephen Cohen, to be “a Putin apologist.” He is a professor of Russian studies at both Princeton University and New York University and was advisor to President George Herbert Walker Bush. Mikhail Gorbachev also trusted Cohen, and little doubt that Cohen helped to bring about the end of the Cold War.

The Choice before Europe
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 May 2015

Washington continues to drive Europe toward one or the other of the two most likely outcomes of the orchestrated conflict with Russia. Either Europe or some European Union member government will break from Washington over the issue of Russian sanctions, thereby forcing the EU off of the path of conflict with Russia, or Europe will be pushed into military conflict with Russia.

CNN Is Beating the Drums of War
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 16 Mar 2015

Wolf Blitzer (CNN, March 13) used the cover of a news program to broadcast a propaganda performance straight out of the Third Reich or perhaps from George Orwell’s 1984. The orchestration presented Russia as a massive, aggressive military threat. The screen was filled with missiles firing and an assortment of American General Strangeloves urging provocative measures to be deployed against the Russian Threat.

Financial Market Manipulation Is The New Trend: Can It Continue?
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Dec 2014

A Global House Of Cards
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 Nov 2014

As most Americans, if not the financial media, are aware, Quantitative Easing (a euphemism for printing money) has failed to bring back the US economy. The extent of financial corruption involving collusion between the mega-banks and the financial authorities is unfathomable. The Western financial system is a house of cards resting on corruption.

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Sep 2014

The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery. One reason is that Putin has invested heavily in diplomacy backed by unprovocative behavior. He would not risk his bet on diplomacy by sending in troops too few in number to have a decisive effect on the outcome.

A person might think that revulsion in “the world community” against Washington’s wanton slaughter of civilians in eight countries would have led to War Crimes Tribunal warrants issued for the arrest of presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama and many officials in their regimes… Putin has done what he can to avoid conflict.

Washington Has Set the World on a Path to War
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 Mar 2014

Why is Washington so opposed to Crimean self-determination? The answer is that one of the main purposes of Washington’s coup in Kiev was to have the new puppet government evict Russia from its Black Sea naval base in Crimea. Washington cannot use the government Washington has installed in Ukraine for that purpose if Crimea is no longer part of Ukraine.

Global Capitalism Has Written Off the Human Race
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Feb 2014

Economic theory teaches that free price and profit movements ensure that capitalism produces the greatest welfare for the greatest number. This theory doesn’t work when the US government socializes cost and privatizes profits as it has been doing with the Federal Reserve’s support of “banks too big to fail” and when a handful of financial institutions have concentrated much economic activity.

Social costs are costs of production that are not born by the producer or included in the price of the product. There are many classic examples: the pollution of air, water, and land from mining, fracking, oil drilling and pipeline spills, chemical fertilizer farming, GMOs, pesticides, radioactivity released from nuclear accidents and the pollution of food by antibiotics and artificial hormones.

Why Disinformation Works
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Jun 2013

What I have noticed is that whenever a stunning episode occurs, such as 9/11 or the Boston Marathon bombing, most everyone whether on the right or left goes along with the government’s explanation, because they can hook their agenda to the government’s account.

If You Want to Go to Heaven, You Had Better Get Busy Overthrowing Syria
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 29 Apr 2013

The US military destroyed Iraq, leaving the country and millions of lives in ruins and releasing sectarian blood-letting. And now in Syria Washington is at work destroying another stable secular government headed by a British trained eye doctor. Washington’s eleven years of illegal aggression against Muslim countries–war crimes according to the Nuremberg trials of Nazis–have resulted in civilian deaths and the American police state has destroyed the rule of law and the constitutional protections of US citizens.

Iraq after Ten Years
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 Mar 2013

March 19, 2013. Ten years ago today the Bush regime invaded Iraq. It is known that the justification for the invasion was a packet of lies orchestrated by the neoconservative Bush regime in order to deceive the United Nations and the American people.

Hugo Chavez
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 18 Mar 2013

On March 5, 2013, Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela and world leader against imperialism, died. Washington imperialists and their media and think tank whores expressed gleeful sighs of relief as did the brainwashed US population. An “enemy of America” was gone. Chavez was not an enemy of America. He was an enemy of Washington’s hegemony over other countries, an enemy of Washington’s alliance with elite ruling cliques who steal from the people they grind down and deny sustenance.

It Has Happened Here
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Feb 2013

Whether a person believes the official story of 9/11 which rests on unproven government assertions or believes the documented evidence provided by a large number of scientists, first responders, and structural engineers and architects, the result is the same. 9/11 was used to create an open-ended “war on terror” and a police state. It is extraordinary that so many Americans believe that “it can’t happen here” when it already has.

Bradley Manning: A Window into the American Soul
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Dec 2012

The three branches of our government have united to destroy US civil liberties in the name of a hoax, “the war on terror.” The window into America’s political soul reveals total evil. The US government constitutes Satan’s Chosen People. Nothing else can be said for those who rule and oppress us.

Puppet State America
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 26 Nov 2012

The German assault on the Warsaw Ghetto is one of the horror stories of Jewish history. Such an event is happening again, only this time Jews are perpetrators instead of victims. No hand has been raised to stay Israel from the goal of the operation declared by Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai to be “to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages.”

America’s Moral Degeneracy
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 15 Oct 2012

Once upon a time, the Turks were a fierce people. Today they are Washington’s puppets. We have witnessed this during the past week. The Turkish government is permitting the Islamists from outside Syria, organized by the CIA and Israel, to attack Syria from Turkish territory… Muslim countries are incapable of supporting one another. Instead of supporting one another, Muslim governments accept payoffs to support instead the Christian/Zionist forces of the Western bloc.

How the Government’s Lies Become Truth
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Oct 2012

In my last column, “A Culture of Delusion,” I wrote that “Americans live in a matrix of lies. Lies dominate every policy discussion, every political decision.” This column will use two top news stories, Iranian nukes and Julian Assange, to illustrate how lies become “truth.”

A Culture of Delusion
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Oct 2012

A writer’s greatest disappointments are readers who have knee-jerk responses. Not all readers, of course. Some readers are thoughtful and supportive. Others express thanks for opening their eyes. But the majority are happy when a writer tells them what they want to hear and are unhappy when he writes what they don’t want to hear.

On 9/11, Doubts Were Immediate
Paul Craig Roberts, Journal of 9/11 Studies – TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Sep 2012

It is not credible that not only the CIA and FBI failed to detect the plot, but also all 16 US intelligence agencies, including the National Security Agency, which spies on everyone on the planet, and the Defense Intelligence Agency, Israel’s Mossad, and the intelligence agencies of Washington’s NATO allies. There are simply too many watchmen and too much infiltration of terrorist groups for such a complex attack to be prepared undetected and carried out undeterred.

The Western Onslaught against International Law
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Sep 2012

The lawlessness that now characterizes the US and UK governments is a large threat to humanity’s finest achievement–the rule of law–for which the British fought from the time of Alfred the Great in the ninth century to the Glorious Revolution of the 17th century. Where are the protests over the Anglo-American destruction of the rule of law? Why Aren’t Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and Chatham House on the case?

Is Washington Deaf As Well as Criminal?
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Aug 2012

The morons who rule the american sheeple are not only dumb and blind, they are deaf as well. The ears of the american “superpower” only work when the Israeli prime minister, the crazed Netanyahu, speaks. Then Washington hears everything and rushes to comply. Israel is a tiny insignificant state, created by the careless British and the stupid americans. It has no power except what its american protector provides. Yet, despite Israel’s insignificance, it rules Washington.

Ecuador President Rafael “We Are Not A Colony” Correa Stands Up To The Jackbooted British Gestapo
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Aug 2012

The once proud British government, now reduced to Washington’s servile whore, put on its Gestapo Jackboots and declared that if the Ecuadorean Embassy in London did not hand over WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, British storm troopers would invade the embassy with military force and drag Assange out. Ecuador stood its ground. “We want to be very clear, we are not a British colony,” declared Ecuador’s Foreign Minister. Far from being intimidated the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, replied to the threat by granting Assange political asylum.

Escape From Economics
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 6 Aug 2012

The problem is that the discipline both lags an ever-changing world and got some things wrong at the beginning. Consequently, learning economics places one inside a box where some of the tools and understanding provided are outdated and incorrect. My advice to readers who wish to develop economic comprehension is to begin with the outside-the-box economists who are addressing real issues. As Lenin and others predicted, industrial capitalism has turned into finance capitalism.

Syria: Washington’s Latest War Crime
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Jul 2012

One wonders what Syrians are thinking as “rebels” vowing to “free Syria” take the country down the same road to destruction as “rebels” in Libya. Libya, under Gaddafi a well run country whose oil revenues were shared with the Libyan people instead of monopolized by a princely class as in Saudi Arabia, now has no government and is in disarray with contending factions vying for power.

War on All Fronts
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Jul 2012

The Russian government has finally caught on that its political opposition is being financed by the US taxpayer-funded National Endowment for Democracy and other CIA/State Department fronts in an attempt to subvert the Russian government and install an American puppet state in the geographically largest country on earth, the one country with a nuclear arsenal sufficient to deter Washington’s aggression.

The Real LIBOR Scandal
Paul Craig Roberts and Nomi Prins – TRANSCEND Media Service, 16 Jul 2012

According to news reports, UK banks fixed the London interbank borrowing rate (Libor) with the complicity of the Bank of England (UK central bank) at a low rate in order to obtain a cheap borrowing cost. The way this scandal is playing out is that the banks benefitted from borrowing at these low rates. Whereas this is true, it also strikes us as simplistic and as a diversion from the deeper, darker scandal.

Can the World Survive Washington’s Hubris?
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Jul 2012

The process of surrounding Russia with military bases continued unabated through successor US administrations with various “color revolutions” financed by the US National Endowment for Democracy, regarded by many as a front for the CIA. Washington even attempted to install a Washington-controlled government in Ukraine and did succeed in this effort in former Soviet Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin.

Washington’s Hypocrisies
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 28 May 2012

The US government is the second worst human rights abuser on the planet and the sole enabler of the worst–Israel. But this doesn’t hamper Washington from pointing the finger elsewhere. The US State Department’s “human rights report” focuses its ire on Iran and Syria, two countries whose real sin is their independence from Washington, and on the bogyman- in-the-making–China, the country selected for the role of Washington’s new Cold War enemy.

The Case of the Missing Terrorists
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 21 May 2012

If there were any real terrorists, Jose Rodriguez would be dead. Who is Jose Rodriguez? He is the criminal who ran the CIA torture program. Most of his victims were not terrorists or even insurgents. Most were hapless individuals kidnapped by warlords and sold to the Americans as “terrorists” for the bounty paid.

Unplugging Americans from the Matrix
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Apr 2012

Americans, the British, and Western Europeans are accustomed to thinking of themselves as the representatives of freedom, democracy, and morality in the world. The West passes judgment on the rest of the world as if the West is God and the rest of the world are barbarians in need of chastisement, invasion, and occupation.

Empires Then and Now
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Apr 2012

Great empires, such as the Roman and British, were extractive. The empires succeeded because the value of the resources and wealth extracted from conquered lands exceeded the value of conquest and governance. In his book, The Rule of Empires (2010), Timothy H. Parsons wonders whether America’s is really an empire. After eight years in Iraq, all Washington has for its efforts is several trillion dollars of additional debt and no Iraqi oil. After ten years of trillion dollar struggle against the Taliban in Afghanistan, Washington has nothing to show for it except possibly some part of the drug trade that can be used to fund covert CIA operations.
