Reply to Paul Craig Roberts’ crucial question

[This article was written for the Unz Review] In a recent article, Paul Craig Roberts directly asked me a very important question. Here is the relevant part of this article (but please make sure to read the full article to understand where Paul Craig Roberts is coming from and why he is raising this absolutely crucial issue): Andrei Martyanov, whose book I recently reviewed on my website, recently defended Putin,

Two analyses by Paul Craig Roberts

Note by the Saker: As I have mentioned here, I am currently on a road trip and I have very spotty access to the Internet.  The recent Putin-Trump summit has elicited a lot of reactions and I will write an analysis of my own by the time I get back home (somewhere around the 20th-22nd of July).  In the meantime, I am posting two more articles by the special permission

The Two Superpowers: Who Really Controls the Two Countries?

by Paul Craig Roberts (cross-posted with PCR’s website with his special agreement) Among the ruling interests in the US, one interest even more powerful than the Israel Lobby—the Deep State of the military/security complex— there is enormous fear that an uncontrollable President Trump at the upcoming Putin/Trump summit will make an agreement that will bring to an end the demonizing of Russia that serves to protect the enormous budget and

Will Putin’s Policy of Concession Succeed?

Note by the Saker: I am posting this article today by the special permission of Paul Craig Roberts.  It was initially posted here. Will Putin’s Policy of Concession Succeed? by Paul Craig Roberts Russian president Vladimir Putin’s speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Conference last weekend shows the Russian government’s ensnarement by neoliberal economic policy. Putin defended globalism and free trade, and he warned that crisis will result from

On The Threshold of War — Paul Craig Roberts

UPDATE There is no longer any doubt that the criminally insane government in Washington is driving the world to the last war. https://www.rt.com/news/423634-unsc-security-threats-syria-chemical/ https://www.rt.com/news/423627-russian-military-checks-chemical-douma/ UPDATE: As Americans we must face the possibility that we have a criminally insane government in Washington that is leading the world to destruction. A Russian Government Press Release: False information is being planted about the alleged use of chlorine and other toxic agents by the

How We Know The So-Called “Civil War” Was Not Over Slavery

by Paul Craig Roberts When I read Professor Thomas DiLorenzo’s article the question that lept to mind was, “How come the South is said to have fought for slavery when the North wasn’t fighting against  slavery?” Two days before Lincoln’s inauguration as the 16th President, Congress, consisting only of the Northern states, passed overwhelmingly on March 2, 1861, the Corwin Amendment that gave constitutional protection to slavery.  Lincoln endorsed the

Trump and American History Have Been Assassinated

by Paul Craig Roberts When Trump was elected I wrote that it was unlikely that he would be successful in accomplishing the three objectives for which he was elected—peace with Russia, the return home of offshored US jobs, and effective limits on non-white immigration—because these objectives conflicted with the interests of those more powerful than the president. I wrote that Trump was unfamiliar with Washington and would fail to appoint

A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand (Charlottesville 3)

by Paul Craig Roberts The liberal/progressive/left are enjoying their drunkfest of denunciation. I can’t say I have ever witnessed anything like it.  These are the people who sat on their hands for 16 years while Washington destroyed in whole or part seven countries.  Not being satisfied with this level of warmongering and crimes against humanity, Washington orchestrated a conflict situation with Russia.  Americans elected a president who said he would

Charlottesville 2

by Paul Craig Roberts What the liberal/progressive/left is trying to do with Charlottesville is to associate Trump supporters with White Supremacists and in this way demonize Trump supporters so that they will not have a voice when Trump is overthrown in a coup. Or it can be put in a different way: Charlottesville is being used by someone to discredit Trump and the people who elected him in order to

Charlottesville

by Paul Craig Roberts Listening to NPR this morning confirmed what I already knew. Charlottesville is being turned into another nail in President Trump’s coffin. NPR had no interest whatsoever in reporting the actual facts about what had occurred in Charlottesville. The several “interviews” with the like-minded were orchestrated to produce the desired propaganda result: It was all Trump’s fault. It was Trump’s fault for many reasons. He had stirred

Trump Cannot Improve Relations With Russia When Trump’s Government and the US Media Oppose Improved Relations

by Paul Craig Roberts President Trump Has Been Contradicted by His Own Government, Which Has Lined Up Against Him in Favor of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and the Russophobic Presstitute Media that serves the military/security complex and the neoconservatives. I am afraid that The Saker and Finian Cunningham are correct. Nothing can come of Trump’s meeting with Putin, because, as Cunningham puts it, “Trump doesn’t have freedom or

Paul Craig Roberts and Michael Hudson: “Russian government is reconsidering the neoliberal policy”

by Paul Craig Roberts and Michael Hudson According to various reports, the Russian government is reconsidering the neoliberal policy that has served Russia so badly since the collapse of the Soviet Union.  If Russia had adopted an intelligent economic policy, its economy would be far ahead of where it stands today.  It would have avoided most of the capital flight to the West by relying on self-finance. Washington took advantage

As Our Past Wars Are Glorified This Memorial Day Weekend, Give Some Thought To Our Prospects Against The Russians And Chinese In World War III

Paul Craig Roberts and Michael Hudson: Privatization Is the Atlanticist Strategy to Attack Russia

NOTE: Readers are asking to know who, in addition to the Western-financed NGOs, are the Fifth Columnists inside Russia. Michael Hudson and I left the description general as Atlanticist Integrationists and neoliberal economists. The Saker provides some specific names. Among the Fifth Columnists are the Russian Prime Minister, head of the Central Bank, and the two top economics ministers. They are springing a privatization trap on Putin that could undo

9/11 After 13 years & The Legend of 911 — 13 Years On

by Paul Craig Roberts The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust. For thirteen years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used to create the American warfare/police state. The corrupt Bush and Obama

Does The West Have A Future?

By Paul Craig Roberts for the Information Clearing House Living in America is becoming very difficult for anyone with a moral conscience, a sense of justice, or a lick of intelligence. Consider: We have had a second fake underwear bomb plot, a much more fantastic one than the first hoax. The second underwear bomber was a CIA operative or informant allegedly recruited by al-Qaeda, an organization that US authorities have
