Paul Craig Roberts: “The effort of Americans to bring govt back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state”

Has Donald Trump overestimated his presidential power? The answer is yes.

Is Steve Bannon, Trump’s main advisor, politically inexperienced? The answer is yes.

We can conclude from the answers to these two questions that Trump is in over his head and will pay a big price.

How large will the price be?

The New York Times reports that US “intelligence agencies…sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.”

Former National Security Agency (NSA) spy John Schindler tweeted on Twitter that a senior intelligence community colleague sent him an email stating that the deep state had declared nuclear war on Trump and that “He will die in jail.”

It is possible that this will be the case.

At the end of World War II, the military/security complex decided that the flow of profits and power from war and threats of war were too great to be relinquished to an era of peace. This complex manipulated a weak and inexperienced President Truman into a gratuitous Cold War with the Soviet Union. The lie was created, and accepted by the gullible American people, that International Communism intended world conquest. This lie was transparent, because Stalin had purged and murdered Leon Trotsky and all communists who believed in world revolution. “Socialism in one country,” declared Stalin.

Academic experts, knowing where their bread was buttered, went along with and contributed to the deceit. By 1961 the overarching power of the military/security complex was apparent to President Eisenhower, a five star general in charge of the US invasion of German occupied Western Europe during the Second World War. The private power that the military/security complex (Eisenhower called it the military-industrial complex) exercised disturbed Ike so much that in his last address to the American people he said we must guard against its subversion of democracy:

“Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

“We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

Eisenhower’s warning was to the point. However, it relied on “an alert and knowledgeable citizenry,” which the US does not have. The American population is largely insouciant, and is heading, across the ideological spectrum from left to right, to self-destruction.

The print and TV media, which serve as propagandists for the ruling military/security complex and Wall Street elites, make certain that Americans have nothing but bogus orchestrated information. Every household and person who turns on TV or reads a newspaper is programed to live in a false orchestrated reality that serves the tiny few who comprise the ruling Establishment.

Trump challenged this Establishment without realizing that it is more powerful than a mere President of the United States.

This is what has happened: During Obama’s second term, Russia and its president were demonized by the military/security complex and the neoconservatives using the presstitute media. The demonization has facilitated the ability of the controlled presstitute media, such as the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, and the rest, to associate contact with Russia and articles questioning the orchestrated tensions between the US and Russia with suspicious activity, possibly even treason. Trump and his advisors were too inexperienced to realize that the consequence of Flynn’s dismissal was to validate this orchestrated association of the Trump presidency with Russian intelligence.

Now we have the media whores and the political whores asking the question used to blacken President Nixon and to force his resignation: “What did the President know and when did he know it?” Did Trump know that Gen. Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador weeks before Trump said he did? Did Flynn do the unspeakable—speak to a Russian—because Trump told him to do so?

The purveyors of fake news—the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the despicable liars are using irresponsible innuendo to entangle President Trump in a web of treason. Here is the New York Times headline: “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.” What we are witnessing is a campaign by the deep state using their media whores to set up Trump for impeachment.

Those at work overturning the 2016 presidential election are so confident of their success that they publicly declare their preference for coup over democracy. The Zionist neoconservative warmonger Bill Kristol has expressed his preference for a deep state coup over democratically elected President Trump.

The liberal/progressive/left has aligned with the One Percent against the “racist, misogynist, homophobic” working class—the “Trump deplorables”—who elected Trump. Even the uninformed musician, Moby, felt compelled to post ignorant nonsense on Facebook:

“1-the Russian dossier on trump is real. 100% real. he’s being blackmailed by the Russian government, not just for being peed on by Russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things.

2-the trump administration is in collusion with the Russian government, and has been since day one.”

Now that Trump has been tainted with “associations with Russian intelligence,” the idiot Republicans, according to Bloomberg, have “joined calls by Democrats for a deeper look at contacts between President Donald Trump’s team and Russian intelligence agents Wednesday [Feb. 15], indicating a growing sense of political peril within the party as new reports surfaced of extensive contacts between the two.”

Of course, there is no evidence of such contacts, but facts are not part of the campaign to depose Trump.

Trump’s sacking of Flynn is being used as vindication by his opponents of their false charges that the President of the United States is compromised by Russian intelligence. Realizing the mistake, the White House has tried to counter its blunder by saying that Flynn was dismissed because Trump lost confidence in him, not because he did anything illegal or had connections to Russian intelligence. But none of Trump’s opponents are listening. And the CIA keeps feeding fake news to the presstitutes.

From the very beginning I warned that Trump lacked the experience and the knowledge to pick a government that would stand by him and serve his agenda. Trump has now fired the one person on whom he could have counted. The most obvious conclusion is that Trump is dead meat.

The effort of the American people to bring government back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state.

Chris Hedges argument that revolution is the only way that Americans can reclaim their country continues to gain credibility.

The words that doomed Trump when he declared war before he had his army assembled:

“There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government. The political establishment that is trying everything to stop us, is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled this country dry.

“The political establishment has brought about the destruction of our factories and our jobs, as they flee to Mexico, China and other countries throughout the world. It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.”

    If they get their coup then public traitors like Bill Kristol are as good as dead.

      Most of the anti-American Zionist traitors like Kristol live in gated communities so as to protect their wimpy pathetic asses. I would bury him if I saw him.

        There won’t be a coup.

  • The Tuna Fairy

    I find it interesting that they seem to want one world order, as long as Russia isn’t in that world… Of course big businessmen have contact with Russia, there’s a lot of businesses there. And a lot of businessmen have contact with China, if we go to war with them, does that mean they are suspect too? I just don’t understand…

    But I’m not the target market for their propaganda, so I guess they don’t try to explain it rationally to me 🙂

    • Public_Citizen

      The problem being that you expect the one thing they have so assiduously worked to remove from the indoctrination program being used in an explanation for someone who actually knows how to parse what has been uttered and detect the logical flaws and discontinuities.
      Ain’t gonna happen.
      But then, I think you probably already figured that out.

      You are just too darn logical and rational in your thinking to make a good Tool.

  • Mike

    if they get their coup, the people will need to use their 2nd amendment to fix the issue.

    Trump’s son in law Jared and his brother just got a big loan from George Soros to get their real estate business off the ground to the tune of a quarter billion dollars.
    This does not look good. Since I can’t drop a link,check out Jewish Business News.

    “The sky is falling”. This is WHY America is where it is, because you have weak bastards, albeit very smart, but they run around and tell you it is over and there is no use fighting. Because they themselves are psychologically defeated, and really do not know what it is to fight. Paul Craig Roberts gives up before the REAL fight even begins. This is how America got taken over by the Jesuit satanist concubines called the CIA, NSA, DHS, etc. Psychological warfare is warfare. It is also TREASON. They need to be EXECUTED for their subversion, robbery and murder of the American People, and they WILL BE. But PC Roberts would rather lay down and say it is over, never lifting a finger physically other than to write about how weak he is. It is not over until they are ALL standing in a lake of fire. SOON …very soon. …Get your head out of your @$$, Roberts. You got it plugged up there so far that the pressure is going to blow, and it will not end well.

    • Upperthoughts

      Roberts has been preaching to the idiots (Americans) for years and all they have done is nothing. He has not given up. The people have given up doing any more than parroting CNN fake news and staring down at their gay iPhones. Roberts has been telling it like it is for years. It is the cowardly
      American pussies that have given up. He just telling it like it is. America is a wasteland of boob tube idiots and wimps that are going to roll over for tyranny like they did for the racist sodomite poser Obama.

      And these kids are gonna f*ck it all up and that is seriously pissing me off.

      • G’ma G

        i used to teach so what I see being done to our kids in the form of brain washing pisses me off to no end. By its very definition these kids don’t know any better. Fortunately they are still humans and can learn if given the information and a nudge or two in the right direction because they are just children after all. They are worth trying to save. There are tremendously bright and gifted people in every generation. Much greater people than I can ever be. I’ve had the honor of meeting several, one as young as 5, another as old as 102. Deep breath. Patience. Carry on.

  • Don’tTrust’em

    Question, does conservative mean, push over or worse coward? I’m serious, look around you! Trump supports getting spit on, beat and abused and a lot of the time right in front of the people paid to protect them.i believe that average Trump support stood by and took the abuse because they new Trump was destined to be president. But now he is in all I see is more complacency. The left attacks on all fronts, while conservatives just take it. Now, the attack is coming from with in, our elected branches of government and the intelligence agency have purposely and willfully undermined this oath to which they have sworn to uphold and protect ,the constitution.
    Question 2, are we so fully of Coca-Cola and prescription pills that we have been chemical neutered? What are conservatives waiting for, who is this golden organizer of men , that will unite us all?

    • Upperthoughts

      The answer lies in who controls the media, and the money. That answer of course is the Fed and who owns the Fed? The Rothchilds. Who created the state of Israel? The Rothchilds. Who owns our entire senate and congress?
      AIPAC. Who does AIPAC represent? Israel. Who owns all the big 6 news
      corporations? Zionists affiliated with the Rothchilds. Who pushes for hundreds of years to attack and ultimately control Russia? The Rothchilds.
      Who dares to be friends or at least not enemies of Russia? Trump
      Who risks being killed like JFK for exactly the same reason? Trump
      The people have been lied to about everything in the schools. They know nothing and are easily duped by fake corporate news. No thinking required.
      Obama destroyed much of the Constitution with not a peep from corporate news. Because the US must fall before a one world government and bank can be established with the Rothchilds as the head. People do not know this because they did not hear it on CNN. Unfortunately the enemy is much more well armed than gun. And unless the people who want liberty as per our Constitution are equally organized and armed tyranny will prevail. So far it appears with hundreds of billions spent already the deep state that
      the neocons built will prevail against the good but poorly organized patriots.

      • Don’tTrust’em

        Thanks for the reply.

      • straight shooter

        Good overall summary, largely true–except that Obama did not destroy the Constitution. It was altered in 1871 and has been getting steadily more mutilated ever since.

    It is rather obvious to me 24/7 news along with the internet allows fake news to be a major factor in everything now. However, all it does is make it harder to separate the wheat from the chaff. Does not make it impossible just more difficult.

    Anyone caught planning any kind of a take over of government should face a firing squad, if convicted, at the very least. Of course we all know why and how we got here it is just nearly half the country was positive hillary was going to be elected and able to totally destroy the conservatives in America. Obama started but he failed because he could not get the guns out of the hands of the citizens. However, he obviously tried. The progressive communists thought hillary could and would get it done. Then along came Donald Trump and spoiled the plan. They had everything planned from day one. However, Donald was able to spoil it because millions began to wake up and see the forest “and” the trees. Most of us who attended even one Trump rally saw it coming. We were not certain of it because of the fraudulent voting but we new it was very likely.

    However, the so called democrats were very close to confiscating the guns. All they needed was to stack the supreme court with other progressive communistic so called democrats and then the second amendment could be reinterpreted to not cover individuals. No amendment to the constitution needed.

    It appears these progressive communists who are hiding behind a democrat label are determined to follow through on their take over plans even without hillary in office. If so there will be trouble like most have never seen before since at least the civil war! If they think we will just lay down and give up they have a very hard lesson coming. It is coming soon or so it appears.

    Witnessing the so called democrats hatred permeating the nation today just what does anyone think would happen if the guns were gone and the so called progressive democrats were in complete power? Just watch a documentary called “innocence betrayed” (you can find it on the internet with a search). That will explain how and why such things happen. Being forewarned is being forearmed.

  • Tiger

    The good that has come from this is that a word, for years not known but to Special communities in the government “Deep State”, is now being talked about openly on TV and Talk Radio, along with Shadow Government, somewhat more familiar to the peon is a win win situation.

    Mr. Roberts underestimates the will of the people and the BACKBONE, look it up Liberals of President Trump ,who try as they may nobody outsmarted him yet, has to give FULL DISCLOSURE of this monstrosity that has held America and our Republic in it’s talons for years.

    If and when that happens no Civil War, no nothing. Over. Because in the meantime Obama, Hillary, Soros and many in Congress breaking serious U.S.Codes in our laws and my guess prosecutions in order and will be done.
