“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can... Read More
The main problem with the US economy is that globalism has been deconstructing it. The offshoring of US jobs has reduced US manufacturing and industrial capability and associated innovation, research, development, supply chains, consumer purchasing power, and tax base of state and local governments. Corporations have increased short-term profits at the expense of these long-term... Read More
Readers agree that the demonization of white people is unfair and divisive. Many report that they have experienced reverse discrimination, and they expect discrimination against whites, such as the announced anti-white policy of the New York public school system, to worsen as the media’s demonization of white people escalates. A few readers noted that both... Read More
The plunder is getting worse
American capitalism is based on plunder. With the continental USA plundered, American capitalism hoped to continue enriching itself by plundering Russia as it did under Yeltsin, carefully including the Russian “Atlanticist Integrationists” in the spoils in order to have support from the liberal, progressive forces in Russia for stripping Russia of its assets. But Putin... Read More
“The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” lingers around the country because white mass shooters tend to get more publicity. And, the twisted young male who goes on a public shooting spree fits a certain kind of media narrative. But when we actually study the mass shootings that took place in 2019,... Read More
Two days ago I wrote about how our allegedly full employment economy’s need for jobs had caused the Trump regime to overule the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and permit extractive companies to destroy protected lands ( https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/08/13/gold-over-life-literally/ ). Today our subject thanks to Stephen Lendman ( https://stephenlendman.org/2019/08/trump-regime-gutting-the-endangered-species-act/ ) is the Trump regime’s destruction of the... Read More
The decision by Alaska’s governor Mike Dunleavy and US president Donald Trump to sacrifice the environment for a gold mine is an extremely bad one, but I understand why it has happened. The offshoring of Americans’ jobs to Mexico and Asia has put millions of Americans into a situation in which their livelihood is not... Read More
I appreciate my readers’ confidence in me. However, I cannot clear up the Epstein matter for you. Perhaps I can help you to think about it in a careful way. First of all, many jail “suicides” are murders. In 1995 Jesse Trentadue’s brother, Kenneth, was mistakenly identified as the possible “missing man” who was thought... Read More
CJ Hopkins doesn’t say it, but he shows that within all of the Western countries in which the white core populations are experiencing fierce attack from anti-white ideologues in the media and governments that rule them, there is unity of voice from the media that “Trump is a White Supremacist who inspires Terrorism.” This unity...

After years of being kept in the doldrums by orchestrated short selling described on this website by Roberts and Kranzler, gold has lately moved up sharply reaching $1,510 this morning. The gold price has continued to rise despite the continuing practice of dumping large volumes of naked contracts in the futures market. The gold price... Read More
The FBI has published a document that concludes that “conspiracy theories” can motivate believers to commit crimes. Considering the growing acceptance of pre-emptive arrest, that is, arresting someone before they can commit a crime that they are suspected of planning to commit, challenging official explanations, such as those offered for the assassinations of John F....

The unintended consequences of mass shootings and the attempts to use these shootings for various agendas can be far worse than the shootings themselves and ultimately endanger far more people. I was listening to NPR this morning prior to President Trump’s 10 AM EST address on the shootings. NPR set Trump up for blame. Trump... Read More
It is unfortunate that Tulsi Gabbard succumbed to the Israel Lobby. The forces of the Empire saw it as a sign of weakness and have set about destroying her. The ruling elite see Gabbard as a threat just as they saw Trump as a threat. A threat is an attractive political candidate who questions the... Read More
Yesterday’s column referred to a “rising labor force participation rate” when it should have read “falling labor force participation rate.” Those of you who read the column before I made the correction must have been puzzled, but, little doubt, figured it out from the context. One of the main points of the article is that... Read More
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the US economy created 148,000 new private sector jobs during July. The jobs number does not translate into employed people as increasingly Americans hold two or more jobs. For example, the BLS reports that from June to July the number of multiple job holders rose by 233,000 which... Read More
Capitalists have claimed responsibility for America’s past economic success. Let’s begin by setting the record straight. American success had little to do with capitalism. This is not to say that the US would have had more success with something like Soviet central planning. Prior to 1900 when the frontier was closed, America’s success was a... Read More
The corrupt Brazilian government installed by Washington has decided to destroy the Amazon Rain Forest. This will adversely affect the Earth’s climate by eliminating a massive carbon sink. The beneficiaries of the destruction of the rain forest are the timber loggers who are buddies with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, environmental minister Ricardo Salles, and farming... Read More
The Democrats are even more insane than I thought. The Trump-hater Nadler had a press conference with other Trump-hating Democrats and claimed, despite the absence of any evidence from Mueller, that Trump is a criminal. Reassured by this certitude, the Democrats will continue their impeachment investigation, says Nadler. Among the most crazed elements of the... Read More
America Divided Against Itself Cannot Survive: Good News for Those Constantly Abused by Washington, such as Iran,...
Earlier today I posted my comments with links to the congressional questioning of Mueller about his report that, despite the evidence, tried to suggest, using NY Times, CNN, and Washington Post articles planted on the willing presstitutes by the military/security complex, that, although there was no evidence, President Trump might have obstructed justice in the...

nfowars provides a series of 5-minute destructions of Mueller and also a video of the entire hearing: Now that Russiagate is totally discredited, President Trump must use the initiative in his hands to prevent the deep state and media whores from ever again attempting a coup against our government or any other. From the very... Read More
Readers aware that I, and Dmitry Orlov, have been chronicling America’s rapid decline ask me, “where did it all begin?” To answer that question would require a massive history such as Jacques Barzun’s From Dawn to Decadence: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life. All I can do for you is to show you recent evidence... Read More
When President John F. Kennedy threatened the budget and power of the military/security complex by seeking to end the Cold War with the Soviet Union, the military/security complex physically assassinated him. When Donald Trump threatened the power and profit of the military/security complex by stating his intention to normalize US relations with Russia, the military/security... Read More
Kathy Zhu a pretty Asian Miss Michigan found out that she doesn’t have free speech. The organization Miss World America took away her Miss Michigan title and banned Miss Zhu from further participation in their pageants. The reason? Someone complained that Miss Zhu’s posted opinions on social media are “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate.” Did Miss... Read More
President Trump might be his own man, but not when it comes to John Bolton and Israel. Trump is their man and is again being manipulated into starting a fisticuffs with Iran. Someone in Washington, most likely Ziocon warmonger Bolton, got the UK to commit an act of piracy on the high seas and seize... Read More
Some readers, both male and female, wondered why I came to the defense of feminist Laura Tanner ( ). Why not, I was asked, let a MeTwo babe experience the name-calling and stress that feminists dish out to men and “women apologists for men”? Justice is part of the answer. Another part of the answer... Read More
CNN abandoned journalism and became a propaganda ministry for the Democratic National Committee and the corrupt upper echelons of the CIA and FBI. After three years of telling the most outrageous lies ever associated with an alleged news organization in an alleged democracy, CNN’s viewership collapsed. CNN turned propaganda ministry saw its primetime viewers shrink... Read More
The Mueller report, which had no choice as there was no evidence, but to clear Donald Trump of conspiring with Russian President Putin to steal the last US presidential election from Hillary Clinton, nevertheless managed to keep an aspect of the manufactured hoax known as “Russiagate” alive by indicting some Russian intelligence officers and a...

Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley notes that the University of California, once a bastion of free speech, now is opposed to it. The university now punishes people for opinions expressed outside the classroom and the university. Not that long ago American universities emphasized tolerance of all views so that truth would not be obscured... Read More
In the last presidential election, the Democratic candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, dismissed the white American working class as the “Trump deplorables,” “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.” Now Nancy Pelosi wants the House of Representatives to censure President Trump for sticking up for America and its white core population. What more... Read More
Today there are reports of toxic algae blooms affecting the French Riveria, Lake Erie, and the Gulf of Mexico. See: , , and . Corporate farming is a huge contributor to toxic algae blooms. In days of old, farming was done intelligently. Every year part of the land was left fallow or planted with soil... Read More
The official explanation given of the Sandy Hook school shootings struck many people at the time as fishy. Various aspects of the story did not seem to go together well or fit normal procedures for such a crime. Contradictory evidence was never explained, and doubts based on evidence were ignored rather than answered. Now a... Read More
Americans, being an insouciant people, are unaware and unconcerned that their addiction to social media supports the Gestapo Police State. Both Twitter and Facebook are mechanisms by which the police state imposes censorship on Americans and casts aside the First Amendment. Social media is also used to isolate truth-tellers and to disappear dissidents who expose... Read More
What Hurricane Barry tells us as it floods an already flooded New Orleans is that the “terrorist threat” that the US allegedly faces is a hoax. What do I mean? Think about it this way. Terrorists, if such exist, have had ample warning about New Orleans’ precarious position with the swollen Mississippi river in flood... Read More
Readers ask me about the Epstein case. Are Ann Coulter, Giraldi and others correct that the Lolita Express was a possible Mossad operation to create blackmail files on political leaders, women included. I have no way of knowing. I posted articles from others to stimulate thought, not to take a position. At this point in... Read More
There is a strong case that they are. Having been demonized for many years and intimidated from defending themselves, white people are now intentionally discriminated against by the racial “minorities” (actually vast world majorities) of the people they have been pressured to elevate above them. Once the “oppressed” are put in charge by dumbshit whites,... Read More
Europeans Are as Dumbshit as Americans
Here is a video of one of the migrant gangs that have been welcomed into Europe sticking a pistol’s barrel into the mouth of a male Swedish teenager and ordering him to dance. Having been taught that it is racist, and perhaps a crime, to oppose invaders from the Third World, instead of fighting back... Read More
It is a known fact that the orchestration of Russiagate, a hoax perpetrated on the American people and the world by the military/security complex, Democratic Party, and US presstitutes, required high officials of the CIA, FBI, and Obama Department of Justice (sic) to commit felonies. We know what the felonies are and who committed them.... Read More
The US Supreme Court has done next to nothing to enforce the Constitution and stop the government’s spying on the population. Phone calls, text messages, emails, credit card purchases, state driver’s license databases, literally everything about our lives is collected as privacy-violating information. Yet the Supreme Court based on speculation about the government’s motives has... Read More
Fareed Zakaria shows his extraordinary dishonesty by maintaining that it is racist to represent the interests of white people, but not racist to represent the interests of black people or other non-white people. He adds to his dishonesty by claiming that it is difficult to know who is white and who isn’t, but this problem... Read More
Clarity Press is a good publisher for authors willing to provide real information in place of the officially sanctioned controlled explanations of our time. A current example is Jeremy Kuzmarov’s assessment of Obama, Obama’s Unending Wars. The forty-fourth president comes across as a successful front man for corporate rule and Washington’s imperialism. https://www.claritypress.com/product/obamas-unending-wars-fronting-the-foreign-policy-of-the-permanent-warfare-state/ Obama was...

This coming September it will have been 18 years since 9/11 and we still do not have from the US government a believable explanation of the event. 9/11 was the necessary “new Pearl Harbor” for the neoconservatives to launch their wars on the Muslim Middle East and North Africa and to put in place an...

Considering the American rightwing’s absorption in war and hatred of Muslims, worship of capitalism whose operatives have sent American middle class jobs abroad, and blind support of Israel, a racist country, Americans desperately need a real leftwing. All we have is a fake leftwing. I sometimes think the last American leftist was British born Alex... Read More
The human race, being a collection of stupids, continues to make decisions that imperil itself. For example, a simple mistake in a warning system about incoming ICBMs can end all life on earth. The supersmart idiots who invented nuclear weapons did not think about the possible unintended consequences of their handiwork. They wanted to defeat... Read More
In a few days July 4th will be upon us. We will hear endless nonsense from insouciant speakers and editorialists about what a great democracy we are, having won our freedom from being a British colony. One thing the United States most certainly is not is a democracy. A democracy requires an informed electorate, and... Read More
“The liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.” — Vladimir Putin, President of Russia The importance of Putin’s statement is not only in its correctness but also in its repudiation of the policies of the liberal Russian Atlanticist Integrationists. The Atlanticist Integrationists,... Read More
Over the course of my lifetime there has been a fundamental shift in the attitude of the judiciary toward Constitutional rights. I remember when guarding against any diminishing of constitutional rights was considered more important than convicting another criminal. There were cases in which the evidence needed in order to convict a person could not... Read More
As I have reported on many occasions, the presstitutes constitute not a free press but a Ministry of Propaganda for the government and ruling oligarchic interests. Ben Norton explains that the New York Times gets permission from Washington before it prints a story: He explains that CIA control and manipulation of the media has a... Read More
Since June 2009 Americans have lived in the false reality of a recovered economy. Various fake news and manipulated statistics have been used to create this false impression. However, indicators that really count have not supported the false picture and were ignored. For example, it is normal in a recovering or expanding economy for the... Read More
Caitlin Johnstone, one of my favorite commentators whose columns I often repost, apparently has felt some pressure from some readers for a bit of optimism. She found it in the “underlying goodness” of Americans who must be deceived into war. If Americans were really bad, she says, they would not have to be deceived and... Read More
As I posted on June 22 ( ), the world still faces the danger of an attack on Iran by Washington acting as an agent of Netanyahu. Israeli agent John Bolton is already in Israel conferring with Netanyahu. It is a safe bet that a more serious false flag attack is being planned that will... Read More
