Paul Craig Roberts On Our Economic Doom

Thread: 

Paul Craig Roberts, former U.S. Treasury Secretary bottom-lines the present economic doom of America’s working -- and non-working -- class in "Another Fraudulent Jobs Report." He writes:

Americans live in a matrix of total lies.

What can Americans do? Elections are pointless.

Ukraine [W]reckoning: Disaster Capitalism, Nazism, Media Propaganda

So after an ugly 25-year Middle Eastern trail of blood and tears, dead or maimed bodies, massive displacement and devastation, the US government, its military, its corporate media and its predatory fellow country flunkies, drifting toward fascism as much as the US is, are defying international law, yet again, all in the name of “freedom.”

And, unfrigginbelievably getting away with it. Read below the fold...

‘Regime Change’ Solidarity with Neo-Nazis of Ukraine! Hello???

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last Monday:

“Frankly, the legitimacy of many governmental bodies is in doubt there,” ... “Treating masked men armed with Kalashnikov rifles, who are now circling Kiev, as a government – we would find it difficult working with such a government.”

Libby’s Stew: Obama in Germany, Ireland, and Stasi America

Obama in Germany

Paul Craig Roberts in “Hypocrisy At The Brandenburg Gate - Stasi in the White House”



Obama’s speech will go down in history as the most hypocritical of all time. Little wonder that the audience was there by invitation only. A real audience would have hooted Obama out of Berlin.

Obama’s Remark Re ‘Raining Missiles’ a Joke, Right?

Thread: 

Obama responding to the latest Israeli/Palestinian crisis at a press conference in Thailand on 11/18/12 at the start of a three-nation tour in Asia:

"Let's understand what the precipitating event here that's causing the current crisis and that was an ever-escalating number of missiles that were landing not just in Israeli territory but in areas that are populated, and there's no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders.”

Obama actually said "There's no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders.”

What a sense of humor that guy has! ROFLMAO!!!! Read below the fold...

The Bitter Truth Behind the Syrian Crisis

Paul Craig Roberts recently suggested an archly apt bumper sticker: “Be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.”

Our government does not bring democracy to countries. Raise your hand if you are naive enough to believe it does. Especially after the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were launched (still ongoing). Those two countries are two of the five most corrupt countries in the world thanks to our craven "involvement" -- involvement a profoundly understating word. Read below the fold...

American Complacency & the Slippery Slope to WWIII

Departments: 

Margaret Kimberley:

The result is that in this democratic nation, presidents behave like dictators, doing whatever they like, and an uninformed citizenry is in no position to stop them. If our newspapers are nothing more than propaganda sheets, there is little reason to pay attention to them beyond predicting when they will allow a president to begin carrying out bad deeds.

‘Amerika’s Decaying Facade of Democracy’

Land of the free.

It sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Just don’t try to exercise said freedom. That can come with serious helpings of intimidation and punishment. Pepper spraying, clubbing, incarceration.

Actually, thanks to our United States Senate this week -- with a stunning bipartisan vote of 93 to 7 -- you now can get efficiently and LEGALLY “disappeared” for exercising your HERETOFORE constitutional freedoms. Free speech. Assembly, etc.

Meanwhile, the REAL terrorists continue to get plenty of mileage out of the faux-War on Terror. It comes in handy for removing the rights and securities of any citizenry, even ours. Read below the fold...

The U.S. Military’s Ongoing Creation of Terrorists is a Deliberate Goal to Justify and Promote New-World-Order Global Domination

I have too readily embraced the notion, as I did with the Bushco regime, that this country is being led by macho, narcissistic, addicted-to-power, patriarchal nincompoops unwittingly generating massive chaos and destruction.

The macho, narcissistic, addicted-to-power, patriarchal part is right. And there are nincompoops and sycophant, amoral cronies enabling their asses off at the upper levels of power. But I and the rest of us should at all times apply the savvy Naomi Klein’s “shock and awe” theory to the continuing, seemingly unsuccessful nightmares resulting in global U.S. military policies. We need to exit the fog of spiritual and intellectual confusion to rally against bottom-line and insane evil. Read below the fold...
