Paul Craig Roberts: Integrity Has Vanished From The West

Support SouthFront

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

Among Western political leaders there is not an ounce of integrity or morality. The Western print and TV media is dishonest and corrupt beyond repair. Yet the Russian government persists in its fantasy of “working with Russia’s Western partners.” The only way Russia can work with crooks is to become a crook. Is that what the Russian government wants?

Finian Cunningham notes the absurdity in the political and media uproar over Trump (belatedly) telephoning Putin to congratulate him on his reelection with 77 percent of the vote, a show of public approval that no Western political leader could possibly attain. The crazed US senator from Arizona called the person with the largest majority vote of our time “a dictator.” Yet a real blood-soaked dictator from Saudi Arabia is feted at the White House and fawned over by the president of the United States.

The Western politicians and presstitutes are morally outraged over an alleged poisoning, unsupported by any evidence, of a former spy of no consequence on orders by the president of Russia himself. These kind of insane insults thrown at the leader of the world’s most powerful military nation—and Russia is a nation, unlike the mongrel Western countries—raise the chances of nuclear Armageddon beyond the risks during the 20th century’s Cold War. The insane fools making these unsupported accusations show total disregard for all life on earth. Yet they regard themselves as the salt of the earth and as “exceptional, indispensable” people.

Think about the alleged poisoning of Skirpal by Russia. What can this be other than an orchestrated effort to demonize the president of Russia? How can the West be so outraged over the death of a former double-agent, that is, a deceptive person, and completely indifferent to the millions of peoples destroyed by the West in the 21st century alone. Where is the outrage among Western peoples over the massive deaths for which the West, acting through its Saudi agent, is responsible in Yemen? Where is the Western outrage among Western peoples over the deaths in Syria? The deaths in Libya, in Somalia, Pakistan, Ukraine, Afghanistan? Where is the outrage in the West over the constant Western interference in the internal affairs of other countries? How many times has Washington overthrown a democratically-elected government in Honduras and reinstalled a Washington puppet?

The corruption in the West extends beyond politicians, presstitutes, and an insouciant public to experts. When the ridiculous Condi Rice, national security adviser to president George W. Bush, spoke of Saddam Hussein’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction sending up a nuclear cloud over an American city, experts did not laugh her out of court. The chance of any such event was precisely zero and every expert knew it, but the corrupt experts held their tongues. If they spoke the truth, they knew that they would not get on TV, would not get a government grant, would be out of the running for a government appointment. So they accepted the absurd lie designed to justify an American invasion that destroyed a country.

This is the West. There is nothing but lies and indifference to the deaths of others. The only outrage is orchestrated and directed against a target: the Taliban, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Iran, Assad, Russia and Putin, and against reformist leaders in Latin America. The targets for Western outrage are always those who act independently of Washington or who are no longer useful to Washington’s purposes.

The quality of people in Western governments has collapsed to the very bottom of the barrel. The British actually have a person, Boris Johnson, as Foreign Secretary, who is so low-down that a former British ambassador has no compunction in calling him a categorical liar. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49067.htm The British lab Porton Down, contrary to Johnson’s claim, has not identified the agent associated with the attack on Skirpal as a Russian novichok agent. Note also that if the British lab is able to identify a novichok agent, it also has the capability of producing it, a capability that many countries have as the formulas were published years ago in a book.

That the novichok poisoning of Skirpal is an orchestration is obvious. The minute the event occured the story was ready. With no evidence in hand, the British government and presstitute media were screaming “the Russians did it.” Not content with that, Boris Johnson screamed “Putin did it.” In order to institutionalize fear and hatred of Russia into British consciousness, British school children are being taught that Putin is like Hitler. https://russia-insider.com/en/uk-schools-ask-students-putin-hitler-discuss-and-develop-video/ri22867

Orchestrations this blatant demonstrate that Western governments have no respect for the intelligence of their peoples. That Western governments get away with these fantastic lies indicates that the governments are immune to accountability. Even if accountability were possible, there is no sign that Western peoples are capable of holding their governments accountable. As Washington drives the world to nuclear war, where are the protests? The only protest is brainwashed school children protesting the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment.

Western democracy is a hoax. Consider Catalonia. The people voted for independence and were denounced for doing so by European politicians. The Spanish government invaded Catalonia alleging that the popular referendum, in which people expressed their opinion about their own future, was illegal. Catalonian leaders are in prison awaiting trial, except for Carles Puigdemont who escaped to Belgium. Now Germany has captured him on his return to Belgium from Finland where he lectured at the University of Helsinki and is holding him in jail for a Spanish government that bears more resembance to Francisco Franco than to democracy. https://www.rt.com/news/422269-catalan-puigdemont-detained-germany/ The European Union itself is a conspiracy against democracy.

The success of Western propaganda in creating non-existent virtues for itself is the greatest public relations success in history.

So now the president of Spain is Franco for preventing the anglozionazi-orchestrated break-up of Spain. Great. How is this different from “Putin is Hitler”? Germany is right for handing that PutschDaemon over to Spain. Otherwise, thank God people like PCR exist.


“Paul Craig Roberts: “Integrity” Has Vanished From The West” ( quotes emphasis,mine)

You are correct Paul BUT you left out “Courage”


My feeling is that Paul Craig Roberts is a disinfo agent like Alex Jones

this is done by THE CABAL
Q Exposed as Psyop

The original was REPLACED




I wont argue your point, as I have been suspicious of him for quite a while now. He NEVER talks TRUTH about the Jews


Maybe you can help me. ..When I use Tor now and I type any site in the address bar..The page will not connect..I noticed this after I switched to Kaspersky . I have settings on it to allow TOR..but I can not get it to work.even if i turn off Ksperksy,it still will not work.I have deleted it many times and installed it again..but will not work.
Tor does not answer any questions other than have a forum to look up problems..what do you think?


I don’t use Kapersky for anything, NOT because it is not good but because Kapersky charges. It may also be incompatible with TOR Browser. If it is NOT compatible it means Kapersky is a sell-out to the enemy. Just my opinion.

I use AVAST for my Anti-Virus, and have for 12 years now, because it is VERY GOOD and FREE. As a result I can only tell you what I have done: FIREFOX is my DEFAULT Browser, because it is good and FREE, within TOR Browser and WORKS well with TOR. I use “Duck Duck Go” as my DEFAULT Search engine as it is the MOST private and does nothing with Google , works well with TOR and it is FREE.

It will require some adjustments in the SETTINGS in Firefox and if you don’t know them it will not work. i.e: Go to OPTIONS, then ADVANCED, then SETTINGS and check that “Configure Proxy settings to ” Manual Proxy configuration” and then
SOCKS Host: and then PORT 9050 and then check “SocksV5”

Finally in the “No Host for” box, type, then lick OK at the bottom and you should refresh your Search engine and you should be good to go

Try that first because it is BEST but if you persist in wanting what you have, here is where I had some success with TOR complaint: https://blog.torproject.org/tor-0327-rc-released#comments

I have no working knowledge with Kaspersky but am satisfied with what i have as stated above.

Good luck


Thanks my friend. I also use firefox and I have a 30 day free trial with kapersky and will not use it anymore..I believe you…I will get AVAST instead…thank you for your help..much appreciated!!!!


I almost forgot. I use 2 versions of TOR, but not to complicate things, for now, you will probably need to check the BOX in Settings to “No Proxy” instead of “Manual Proxy”

When you get everythign working and would like to know what I mean by 2 versions, let me know and I will provide the info.

I use 2 versions at the same time SOME TIMES, which gives me a BIG advantage over hackers and Government spies

They never know what is “hitting them” :-)

I can’t help myself. It is the IRISH REBEL in me.


Thanks..you the best!!!


I tried it with No Proxy and did not work and then tried with Manual Prozy with what you said and still get Not secure connection


Did you install the TOR Browser?

Which version of Windows do you have?


Yes I use windows 8.0


Win 8 may be blocking TOR Browser. I do not use it.

I stopped at 7 because I knew Win 10 is designed to SHUT DOWN Internet for those who were foolish enough to fall for the Propaganda to buy Win 10. It is possible the blocking of TOR started at 8.

When 7 is no longer supported I will be going to Linux

Now about you: TRY a thoroughly cleaning of your computer first

1.) Go to “Internet Properties” and DELETE any and all Temp files, History,Cookies,Saved Passwords, Web info etc.

2.) Find and install “Index.dat Analyzer” and USE it

3.) Find and Install “CCleaner Free” and
USE it

4.) Open your PREFETCH Folder and DELETE everything

5.) Download ERASER and USE it

6.) Download MRU-Blaster and use it

I use ALL of those EVERY day before closing down my computer . After those cleanings,Try downloading TOR Browser again or Firefox, whichever is giving you the problem and/or using it. If however you are downloading those programs from a Mirror site or original site and they states that they work with Win 8 then the problem is a possible MALWARE and/or “evil” Cookies

2 Good anti malware programs are : “HitmanPro” and “Malwarebytes”

I should have asked you if your TOR Browser works fine or is it Firefox giving you the problem because you may have been thinking I was talking only about Firefox

Be very specific with me and let me know how it goes AFTER you have TRIED all of those suggestions.

If all sites which you download from state 8 works fine with TOR BROWSER and Firefox, then you most probably have some kind of Malware OR you are NOT Downloading properly

I have old-fashioned Win XP and 7 and have no problems with either of TOR Browser or Firefox and as I said I can and do work them together with another Version of TOR( not a Browser) when I wish to with no problems

It seems it is either YOU and your version of Windows or MALWARE

Keep me informed as I am very curious


I was using TOR and worked up till about 1 month ago..So it is not windows 8..It could be me or they have done something because THE INTERNET is more controlled and censored

I still get this when I use TOR after it is set up

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.


Then do all those cleaning procedures I suggested, including the Malware detection and keep me informed AFTER that


On Firefox..what should I do..have NO proxy or manual proxy or let the site chooses automatically?


I am confused.

Where are you with regards my CLEANING and checking for Malware suggestions?


I have not done it yet because i have spent hours for the last week doing this and you get a headache..I installed a new version of Firefox and wanted to know what should i put No proxy or manual proxy or let it be automatic


If you installed a NEW version of ANYTHING, make certain, you completely remove ALL traces of the old


Ok but what should i use for FIREFOX..manual proxy,NO PROXY or let the it be automatic on settings?


Check my comment to your first mention of that.

If you haven’t started the “cleaning” yet, and Firefox does not work with PROXY, unless you have a Proxy installed, then choose NO PROXY. You have no other practical choice

I believe Auto Proxy only works if you have several sources for your Proxies but TOR is the only one I trust, from years of experience and besides, once again, you have no Proxies installed.


Ok I did it your way and this is what I get on the TOR browser when tried to put Firefox on address bar


What do you get, other than a “headache” :-)

You didn’t say what you get.

From you: “Ok I did it your way and this is what I get on the TOR browser when tried to put Firefox on address bar”


I have had MANY headaches until I learned how to do computer communication correctly and SAFELY back in the mid 90’s

Once you “get it” things will go much more smoothly. I guarantee that…….until the “next time” :-)


Yeah i have a headache from doing this for a week..I am taking a brake..I have noticed also that it must be the way firefox configures things now as i am seeing sometimes with other sites that the connection would not go thru,so this must be something NEW IN CENSORSHIP..
But After i install the TOT BROWSER that is it ..i can not get a connection to any site because the connection is not safe..i give up for now


Ignore the “connection is not safe” which could be a RUSE by Microsoft or MALWARE and connect anyway, IF you can

I have had those warnings and ignored them, myself


I do but I can not open the TOR BROWSER after it is installed…always says

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.


I can only repeat ,GO OVER all my instructions, including the last comment which you have now replied to. The SOLUTION is there somewhere

you mayll need to refresh yourself and then go oveR ALL my advice, including s a last resort a Technician, who will find the problem and do the install for you

If you do finally do that, make certain the TECH writes DOWN EXCACTLY what the problem was, so you can learn from him or

I suspect you will be laughing when you find out how simple the solution was and most probably related to the “cure” as per my suggestions.

PCR has been controlled-opposition for several years.


Bernie Suarez exposes American Intelligence Media in this recent podcast :


Absolutely spot on. Courage is the key, speak out…..


FUBAR; even though Dr. PCR is absolutely correct, the non-election of Hillary and the fact that Syria (with Russian and Iranian help) has all but destroyed ISIS and Al Qaeda means the war hawks have to resort to “boots of the ground” in Syria and Iran, and so mount a propaganda campaign to sell it.
WMD worked for Iraq, but Syria and Iran have no nuclear weapons so “a history of chemical weapons” is being created on them and their protector Russia.
However a critical mass is seeing through the propaganda conditioning, and that has the war hawks fearful peace might dawn. Godspeed to all who work for it.


I really do hope that mr. Putin has got absolutely nothing to do, with any of these Global Conspiracies…..because day by day “our” Western Fucktard Politicians are getting more Psychopathic Numbnuts…..maybe it would be better if these rabid dogs would be put out of their misery by a veterinarian…..


If any integrity ever existed in the West and most other countries for that matter, it only exists when a ‘country’ is getting her own way as the US has mostly done.

When the rat is trapped in a barrel any veneer of integrity is soon lost and the Zionist nations are a prime example of this. Especially Israel,US,UK,France,Australia, Canada.

You can call me Al

Such generalisations when using the term “The West”. The Yanks set themselves from Europe. Certain Countries make me want to puke especially like my UK recently, France, Germany, Poland and so on, but exactly half of the EU Countries wanted nothing to do with this farcical charade.

But then again, it is common to mix up the political elite with the people – don’t …… the people are on the rise and frustration is rocketing upwards.


Western integrity? They never had any. Big, empty words, and they are nothing but global criminals… yet always claiming the moral high ground… there are too many bodies BURIED on their moral high ground. Since 1776. America was in war 90% of the time. At various times the British have invaded almost 90 % of the countries around the globe! Nine of ten! Integrity?


What a great written at last by some western writer ! I hope western people start to see what everybody else has seen for decades !! Mainly in Latinoamerica.


Curiously, Paul Graig did not mention the jews domination of western nations, mainly USA, and their roll in madness decitions of western nations to destroy other nations.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
