Paul Craig Roberts: “In The Western World Truth Is An Endangered Species: Come To Its Support”

Written by Paul Craig Roberts; Originally appeared on paulcraigroberts.org

Nowhere in the Western world is truth respected. Even universities are imposing censorship and speech control. Governments are shutting down, and will eventually criminalize, all explanations that differ from official ones. The Western world no longer has a print and TV media. In its place there is a propaganda ministry for the ruling elite.

Whistleblowers are prosecuted and imprisoned despite their protection by federal statue. The US Department of Justice is a Department of Injustice. It has been a long time since any justice flowed from the DOJ.

The total corruption of the print and TV media led to the rise of Internet media such as Wikileaks, led by Julian Assange, a prisoner since 2012.

Assange is an Australian and Ecuadorian citizen. He is not an American citizen. Yet US politicians and media claim that he is guilty of treason because he published official documents leaked to Wikileaks that prove the duplicity and criminality of the US government.

It is strictly impossible for a non-citizen to be guilty of treason. It is strictly impossible under the US Constitution for the reporting of facts to be spying. The function of the media is to expose and to hold accountable the government. This function is no longer performed by the Western print and TV media.

Washington wants revenge and is determined to get it. If Assange were as corrupt at the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, National Public Radio, MSNBC, etc., he would have reported the leaker to Washington, not published the information, and retired as a multi-millionaire with Washington’s thanks. However, unfortunately for Assange, he had integrity.

Integrity today in the Western world has no value. You cannot find integrity in the government, in the global corporations, in the universities and schools, and most certainly not in the media.

After leaving Assange, an Australian citizen, to Washington’s mercy since 2012, belated pro-Assange protests in Australia forced the US vassal state to come to Assange’s aid before the new corrupt president of Ecuador sells him to Washington for multi-millons of dollars by revoking his asylum.

When the story was printed in the Sydney Morning Herald, the incompetent or brainwashed, or bought-and-paid-for journalist, Nick Miller, wrote:

“Assange entered the embassy on June 19, 2012, after he had exhausted his appeals against an extradition order to go to Sweden to face rape and sexual assault allegations. Swedish authorities have since closed their investigation, saying it couldn’t continue without Assange’s presence in their country.” https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/australian-officials-spotted-in-mysterious-assange-visit-20180608-p4zk7w.html

Nick Miller has committed libel, whether from his ignorance or from pay.

There was no extradition order from Sweden for Assange to be returned to Sweden “to face rape and sexual assault allegations.” No such charges were issued by the Swedish prosecutorial office, and no such charges were made by the women involved.

The case had already been closed by the Swedish prosecutorial office, and the two women who willingly shared their beds with Assange did not press any charges. The Swedish female prosecutor, who many suspect reopened the closed case at the urging of Washington, wrote in the extradition request that she only wanted Assange for questioning.

Normally, extraditions are not granted for questioning. There has to be actual criminal charges, and there were no such charges against Assange. However, under pressure from Washington, a corrupt UK court granted, perhaps for the first time in history, extradition for questioning.

Assange’s attorneys understood that if Assange left his embassy refuge and travelled to Sweden to be questioned, there was nothing to prevent Sweden from turning him over to Washington to be tortured, as Washington does, into confession of some crime.

Consequently, Assange’s attorneys told the Swedish female prosecutor, a person who seems shortchanged on integrity, that Assange would be available for questioning in his place of refuge. The prosecutor, showing her hand, refused to question Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. After refusing for many months while the presstitutes blackened Assange’s reputation as a “rapist who was escaping justice,” the sort of ignorant nonsense that Nick Miller writes, the prosecutor consented to go to London to interview Assange.

As nothing incriminating emerged from the questioning and as neither of the women claimed that they were raped, the female prosecutorclosed the case for the second time. But the corrupt British would not release Assange. They claimed that he was wanted for jumping bail, an argument that made no sense as the charge for his arrest had been dismissed. But Washington insisted, and British “justice” again served Washington instead of justice.

The basis of the political assault on Assange came from the concern of one of his willing sex partners that he had not used a condom. With everyone worried crazy about HIV and Aids, the woman inquired at a Swedish public office if Assange could be required to take a HIV/Aids test. Assange, not realizing his vulnerability, apparently refused the test, and thus opened himself to a controversy that Washington immediately took advantage of.

It is safe for rock stars to have groupies, but not for truth-tellers.

If you understand the extreme extent to which the US government has gone, riding roughshod over many laws and traditions, to destroy Assange, perhaps you can understand the threats that the very few of us who have the education, experience, and integrity to tell you the truth live under.

When I write an article, it does not inform me. I already know. When I inform you, I am doing so at my risk. I am not going to take this risk if readers do not support this website. I do this for you. If it is not important to you, I have no need to do it.

You need to support truth-tellers as we are a disappearing breed under constant assault.

    It’s pointless PCR, you’re already living under totalitarianism, only large scale civil war will get you freedom again, but that will never happen because of the social engineering applied to the population.

    “Oceania had no laws—it didn’t need them.
    Crime was simply whatever the authorities said it was.”

    Game Over.

    U.S. media is fully Jewish owned and controlled. So is the whole educational system. Example, now universities in the U.S. ban pro-Palestinian student groups from organizing, protesting and spreading the word on the BDS movement. School books are being re-written to accommodate a pro-Israeli, pro-Jewish script of current world affairs and history. All U.S. children are being sent to Holocaust museums for field trips, and participation is mandatory. In the U.S. today, there are many holocaust museums, and many more slated to be built. Students, mostly children, are being bused many, many miles just to be indoctrinated at said museums.

    State legislatures are passing laws criminalizing any entity that joins up with BDS or even offering moral support to it ( BDS – Boycott, Divest and Sanction, of Israel, due to its 70 years of brutal military occupation and far too numerous war crimes and crimes against humanity).

    You can not climb the corporate ladder, become a politician, or be a celebrity unless you swear undying love and support to Israel, in the U.S. In essence, you cannot be anybody inside/within the law if you criticize the apartheid state. Congress is working on passing laws that criminalize anti-Semitism with very harsh financial and even prison punishments.

    This all goes against the very foundations of the U.S., its constitution and principals, but no one cares. Soon, folks will be herded into box-cars and dispatched to FEMA camps that litter the landscape. Incidentally, these FEMA camps are conveniently located along major rail lines.

    Its just like what the Bolshevik Jews did when they attained power in the Soviet Union in 1917 and beyond. Where the very first law was to ban anti-Semitism under punishment of death. Only this time in the U.S., these said international Jews who control the U.S. are doing things more carefully , calculatedly, and in slow-motion, lest there be a revolt, which they fear. But the American people have been dumbed down so bad, that there is no hope for them. Their future looks very bleak.

    Also, in the U.S. today, the media, entertainment industry, again owned and run by Jews, are blurring the lines between the sexes, where men are portrayed as womanly, gay, and women are portrayed as tough, and don’t need as man in their lives, and the lives of their children. If you want to get ahead in the entertainment industry, you have got to be LGQBT, or forget it.

    Its just turned into a giant, continent sized cesspool and the U.S. population is sleepwalking right into the abyss.

    PCR knows the old zio rule – in order to “sell” lies one needs to package it in some true facts in hope that lies will be swallowed together with it. That’s the short description if the above article.

      Hey, FSB agent, this rule was known when no jews were on the Earth! :DDD
      btw., you ruskies built this pronciple in your politics centuries ago! :P

    Well, in Finland we have similar case ongoing right now. Ofcourse, the case is not as famous as Assagne case, but otherwise events are pretty similar.
    Mr. Ilja Janitskin founded webpage called MV-lehti (What the fuck news) mvlehti.net. The webpage was mainly focused on problems of immigration from middle east and Africa. Writing style was very eager. The page got 200 000 readers which is A LOT in country which population is only 5 million.
    MSM didn’t like the paper but nothing really happened until he started write about corruption in Finland. MSM still tells us that Finland is world least corrupted country :)!!! Nowdays they admit that we have something called “maan tapa” (“common practise” or what ever!).

    Other not so nice thing was to start writing propagada spread by US, NATOan EU.

    Suddenly Mr. Janitskin got a phone call from MSM and they asked about charges against him. Mr. Janitskin was not even aware of those charges before MSM already knew it. Later he got invitation to hearing in Finland about fundraising, couple of racist crime, plenty of defamation, etc. Small crimes,but many. He was not prosecuted anything yet.
    Funniest thing is that he lived permanently in Spain and published the page from there. Well mr. janitskin said that he could take a part for hearing via video conference from spanish police station but that was not OK for finnish prosecutor. The prosecutor then asked permission for extradition and made international arrest warrant in interpol. He was classified as very dangerous person (not even finnish murderer get that kind of status) and spanish police narcotize him during arrest. After three days he was released.
    That was just a begin. Later he escaped from Spain to Andorra where he was extradited to Finland and is now in Jail waiting the trial where he will be crucified using those fictious charges. My guess is three to five years,which is a lot in the country where man slaughter or rape brings you very often probation.

    If you managed te get here, please visit mvlehti.net. There is also content in english. I don’t have anythig to do with mv-lehti, I’m just a reader, but I wanted point out that Mr. Roberts is absolutely right and this can happen everywhere, not only in the states.

      I always question all this fools that keep reapeating these mantras about nordic countries.

      But Sweden this, Norway that, Finland… BULLSHIT! The entire west is rotten to the core! Nordic coutries are no exception, and in fact they are as controled by zionists as France and UK, or even more.

      • Wise Gandalf

        So, hang yourself up, and Europe will be less rotten. :DDDDD

        • Daniel Castro

          I’m not in europe… well, technically here is western hemisphere, but they call us south,

          You’re not so wise after all! :P
