Does the US Still Have an Economy?

By Paul Craig Roberts and cross posted with permission People want to know where the economy is headed.  What they should be asking is does the US still have an economy?  My answer is no, it doesn’t.  I will explain why. For a quarter century I have pointed out the destructive effect of moving American investment and jobs to China and other points abroad.  Offshoring served the interests of corporate executives and shareholders. The

The Digital Police State Is Being Institutionalized Throughout the Western World

By Paul Craig Roberts and cross posted with permission This report sounds like science fiction, but it comes from a credentialed source and is posted on a respected website.  If correct, the only possible conclusion is that a police state is being institutionalized throughout the Western world and perhaps all of the world.  If correct, the report certainly validates my conclusion that the digital revolution is the worst disaster ever

America’s First Revolution Is Happening Now

by Paul Craig Roberts reposted on the Saker by permission source:  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/01/19/americas-first-revolution-is-happening-now/ Hear me out and you will understand the title. There is a difference between a rebellion and a revolution.  A rebellion is what occurred in the thirteen colonies in the late 18th century.  A revolution is what occurred in Russia in 1917. A rebellion occurred in the colonies, because the subjects of the king in the colonies were treated differently

America’s Demise Is Near At Hand

America R.I.P. by Paul Craig Roberts reposted on the Saker by permission source:  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/01/18/america-r-i-p-2/ For years I have been cataloging America’s decline into collapse, not merely economic collapse from economic concentration and the offshoring of jobs and investment, but also the collapse of the belief system that created some unity among a diverse population.  Today not only is the economy done for but so is the belief system that sustained social

Democrats Launch Their Assault on Red State America – Civil War Heats Up

by Paul Craig Roberts reposted on the Saker by permission source: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/01/12/democrats-launch-their-assault-on-red-state-america/ The opening salvo against red state America is the article of impeachment against President Trump introduced on January 11 by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat Representatives David Cicilline, Ted Lieu, and Jamie Raskin.  So much for Biden’s promise to “unify the country.” What is the intent of this article of impeachment?  It cannot possibly be to remove Trump from

Is America’s Future a Civil War?

Will it become a world war? by Paul Craig Roberts reposted on the Saker by permission source: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/01/10/is-americas-future-a-civil-war/ As a person who grew up in the glorious aftermath of World War II, it never occurred to me that in my later years I would be pondering whether the United States would end in civil war or a police state.  In the aftermath of the stolen presidential election, it seems a

America’s Color Revolution

by Paul Craig Roberts reposted on the Saker by permission source:https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/01/07/americas-color-revolution-2/ The Establishment has imposed a color revolution on the American people.  Ekaterina Blinova is a journalist who reognized that a color revolution has occurred in America under the guise of a presidential election. https://sputniknews.com/us/202011221081242712-politburo-are-dems-striving-to-win-it-all–turn-us-political-landscape-into-one-party-system/ The Establishment used the Democrats for their purpose, because Trump was in office under the Republican banner.  Trump, of course, is a populist, but there

The Empire Has Collapsed

by Paul Craig Roberts, cross-posted by permission Paul Craig Roberts The Saker has written another interesting article in which he gives us the date of the collapse of the AngloZionist or American Empire:  January 3, 2020, the day when Washington did not retaliate against Iran for Iran’s retaliation against Washington for murdering General Qasem Soleimani. You can read The Saker’s case and make up your mind:  https://thesaker.is/when-exactly-did-the-anglozionist-empire-collapse/ An equally good

USA SITREP: The Collapse of the United States Is No Longer Avoidable

by Paul Craig Roberts, posted with the author’s authorization source: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/06/30/the-collapse-of-the-united-states-is-no-longer-avoidable/ Within the last few days two commentators I respect—The Saker and Dmitry Orlov—have written that the United States is now undergoing systemic collapse. My view, reflected in my articles published over the years, is that the United States ceased to exist decades ago.  It is only the foundational strength of the country put in place by great men, such

USA SITREP by PCR: The Anti-American Universities Are a Much Greater Threat to Us than Putin and China

Education Is Offensive and Racist and so is America

By Paul Craig Roberts https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/06/12/education-is-offensive-and-racist-and-so-is-america/ Years of teaching blacks to have grievances against white people for things that happened centuries ago have come to fruition. Rioting and looting are not enough, the violent thugs and ignorant woke creatures are pulling down historic monuments in public parks and defacing public buildings while police and public authorities stand down. In Richmond, Virginia, a statue eight feet tall of Christopher Columbus in a

My (rare) Dissent from The Saker’s Latest Assessment of the Iranian Situation

by Paul Craig Roberts (posted by permission) I am addressing what might be weaknesses in The Saker’s clarification of the Iranian situation. At this time, it is up to Israel whether or not war occurs between the US and Iran.  Israel very much wants this war as a means of putting Iran and Syria into chaos, thus leaving Hezbollah isolated and unsupplied.  Then Israel can succeed in occupying southern Lebanon.

Trump’s Letter to Pelosi

From Paul Craig Roberts – response to The Saker’s posting The Saker has posted President Trump’s letter to Nancy Pelosi with his commentary https://thesaker.is/very-important-letter-from-donald-trump-to-nancy-pelosi-must-read/ . I agree with Saker that Trump’s impression of the good condition of the US economy is largely a mirage produced by official statistics that have long been unreliable. The bad data fed to Trump is not his fault. I also agree with The Saker that

Some of the Many Things Most Americans Never Heard About 9/11

by Paul Craig Roberts reprinted by special permission The “Dancing Israelis” who turned out to be Israeli Mossad agents caught filming and celebrating the destruction of the twin towers. Arrested by police and released without investigation, they were not mentioned in the 911 Commission Report. Later on Israeli TV they said they were sent to New York to film the destruction of the twin towers. Allegedly, there was no advance

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
