Paul Craig Roberts: Laughing on the Way to Armageddon

Support SouthFront

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

The United States shows the world such a ridiculous face that the world laughs at us.

The latest spin on “Russia stole the election” is that Russia used Facebook to influence the election. The NPR women yesterday were breathless about it.

We have been subjected to ten months of propaganda about Trump/Putin election interference and still not a scrap of evidence. It is past time to ask an unasked question: If there were evidence, what is the big deal? All sorts of interest groups try to influence election outcomes including foreign governments. Why is it OK for Israel to influence US elections but not for Russia to do so? Why do you think the armament industry, the energy industry, agribusiness, Wall Street and the banks, pharmaceutical companies, etc., etc., supply the huge sum of money to finance election campaigns if their intent is not to influence the election? Why do editorial boards write editorials endorsing one candidate and damning another if they are not influencing the election?

Paul Craig Roberts: Laughing on the Way to Armageddon

What is the difference between influencing the election and influencing the government? Washington is full of lobbyists of all descriptions, including lobbyists for foreign governments, working round the clock to influence the US government. It is safe to say that the least represented in the government are the citizens themselves who don’t have any lobbyists working for them.

The orchestrated hysteria over “Russian influence” is even more absurd considering the reason Russia allegedly interfered in the election. Russia favored Trump because he was the peace candidate who promised to reduce the high tensions with Russia created by the Obama regime and its neocon nazis—Hillary Clinton, Victoria Nuland, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power. What’s wrong with Russia preferring a peace candidate over a war candidate? The American people themselves preferred the peace candidate. So Russia agreed with the electorate.

Those who don’t agree with the electorate are the warmongers—the military/security complex and the neocon nazis. These are democracy’s enemies who are trying to overturn the choice of the American people. It is not Russia that disrespects the choice of the American people; it is the utterly corrupt Democratic National Committee and its divisive Identity Politics, the military/security complex, and the presstitute media who are undermining democracy.

I believe it is time to change the subject. The important question is who is it that is trying so hard to convince Americans that Russian influence prevails over us?

Do the idiots pushing this line realize how impotent this makes an alleged “superpower” look. How can we be the hegemonic power that the Zionist neocons say we are when Russia can decide who is the president of the United States?

The US has a massive spy state that even intercepts the private cell phone conversations of the Chancellor of Germany, but his massive spy organization is unable to produce one scrap of evidence that the Russians conspired with Trump to steal the presidential election from Hillary. When will the imbeciles realize that when they make charges for which no evidence can be produced they make the United States look silly, foolish, incompetent, stupid beyond all belief?

Countries are supposed to be scared of America’s threat that “we will bomb you into the stone age,” but the President of Russia laughs at us. Putin recently described the complete absence of any competence in Washington:

“It is difficult to talk to people who confuse Austria and Australia. But there is nothing we can do about this; this is the level of political culture among the American establishment. As for the American people, America is truly a great nation if the Americans can put up with so many politically uncivilized people in their government.”

These words from Putin were devastating, because the world understands that they are accurate.

Consider the idiot Nikki Haley, appointed by Trump in a fit of mindlessness as US Ambassador to the United Nations. This stupid person is forever shaking her fist at the Russians while mouthing yet another improbable accusation. She might want to read Mario Puzo’s book, The Godfather. Everyone knows the movie, but if memory serves somewhere in the book Puzo reflects on the practice of the irate American motorist who shakes a fist and gives the bird to other drivers. What if the driver receiving the insult is a Mafia capo? Does the idiot shaking his fist know who he is accosting? No. Does the moron know that the result might be a brutal beating or death? No.

Does the imbecile Nikki Haley understand what can be the result of her inability to control herself? No. Every knowledgeable person I know wonders if Trump appointed the imbecile Nikki Haley US ambassador to the world for the purpose of infuriating the Russians.

Ask Napoleon and the German Wehrmacht the consequence of infuriating the Russians.

After 16 years the US “superpower” has been unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban, who have no air force, no Panzer divisions, no worldwide intelligence service, and the crazed US government in Washington is courting war with Russia and China and North Korea and Iran.

The American people are clearly out to lunch in their insouciance. Americans are fighting among themselves over “civil war” statues, while “their’ government invites nuclear armageddon.

The United States has an ambassador to the world who shows no signs of intelligence, who behaves as if she is Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee to the 5th power, and who is the total antithesis of a diplomat. What does this tell about the United States?

It reveals that the US is in the Roman collapse stage when the emperor appoints horses to the Senate.

The United States has a horse, an uncivilized horse, as its diplomat to the world. The Congress and executive branch are also full of horses and horse excrement. The US government is completely devoid of intelligence. There is no sign of intelligence anywhere in the U.S. government. Of or morality. As Hugo Chavez said: Satan is there; you can smell the sulphur.

America is a joke with nuclear weapons, the prime danger to life on earth.

How can this danger be corralled?

The American people would have to realize that they are being led to their deaths by the Zionist neocon nazis who, together with the military/security complex and Wall Street, control US foreign policy, by the complicity of Europe and Great Britain desperate to retain their CIA subsidies, and by the harlots that comprise the Western media.

Are Americans capable of comprehending this? Only a few have escaped The Matrix.

The consequence is that America is being locked into conflict with Russia and China. There is no possibility whatsoever of Washington invading either country, much less both, so war would be nuclear.

Do the American people want Washington to bring us this result? If not, why are the American people sitting there sucking their thumbs, doing nothing? Why are Europe and Great Britain sitting there permitting the unfolding of nuclear armageddon? Who murdered the peace movement?

The World and the American people need desperately to rein in the warmonger United States, or the world will cease to exist.

An International Court To Preserve Life On Earth needs to be assembled. The US government and the war interests it serves need to be indicted and prosecuted and disarmed before their evil destroys life on earth.

Start WW3. The USA will not fight because without the world no NWO.


Zionists have never been those who consider the consequence’s that much. They are like rats that keep stealing grain until they are poisoned by their greed.

“Zionist neocon nazis”
I agree with what Mr Roberts says with one proviso. His description of Zionists is an insult to National Socialism.


It’s that no. 1 premise of modern society that Shoah is true and that the Nazis are the embodiment of all evil. After all, we saw them in Inglourious Basterds?


To anyone who thinks Shoah is true, please read all the essays by Paul Eisen and then get back to me.


Its a premise I have never believed in as the facts do not support the allegations. The more we investigate the greater is the exposure of the most contemptible fraud in history.


The US terrorists and their Kurd puppets are already across the Euphrates from Deir Ezzor city, more chances for the “coalition” to bomb Syrian troops in ISISraeli-style “self-denfense”. Armageddon is still unlikely though, as Russia isn’t too keen on antagonising too forcefully the Anglojew-led terrorists, only enough to make them sit down and negotiate.


Great article Mr Roberts. Captured my sentiments. Nikki Haley’s presence does nothing for Trump and his campaign promises. Trumps’ MAGA supporters who wanted an end to foreign wars have more or less left him, and we are probably looking at a one-term president in Trump. The problem is presidents after him will be completely owned by the US Deep State until the US ceases to exist and this is the worry that Mr Roberts have that until then the Deep State will go down believing the rest of the world must go down with it.


I think every president in the OECD has been owned by the zionists for the last 20 years.


That’s obvious. The thing is with Trump completely subdued by the Deep State the threat of the US doing something stupid because it has been stripped of its status as an empire and lost its respect with its nuclear weapons is now heightened. The recent moves with SDF moving to the Industrial city northeast of Deir Ezzor shows these guys are desperate to salvage their failed project.


Platitudes! Electing Trump in itself was never enough as a POTUS only has limited powers, the so-called “separation of powers” have been subverted by the Deep State.

The GOP, the Senate, Congress are all filled with countless Establishement lackeys that will do everything they can to undermine and oppose the America First agenda.
The answer is that they must all be replaced, then the courts will have to be purged of their activist judges and all cultural-marxist academics must be removed.
Bannon will declare total war on the Establishement, armies of political soldiers shall be raised to fight an uncompromising, merciless struggle against treason and weakness! Thousands and thousands of militants in the streets, to fight off the paid thugs of the System!
Trump´s MAGA supporters will only end this charade by seizing power, nothing else will do!

Brother Ma

Of course they talk about russia influence, how else will they distract the voters from asking about their lack of well paying jobs , good healthcare and schools for their kids.

And by the way, where is Hercules to clean that stable of all the horseshit!

George King

Some say it is President Putin, although he has a role people must step up instead of looking for a Hercules to do it for them.


That there stuff is Putinic propaganda and every American is duty-bound to not look at it. Americans are only supposed to pay attention to ‘good’ propaganda – the made-in-America kind – also know as ‘the trooth’.

The US greatest weapon to the truth is their insouciance to it all, as they have their version and others have another , we see a battle of popular truth versus the minority truth. The problem in distinguishing the difference between the two is very important, since popular truth is ruled by the Govt which will slander you, incarcerate you, defame you and even try to destroy you utterly, The latter is the unpopular truth which unlike the other is still dangerous as others will try to silence it.

The only way to test either of them is by seeing which can be refuted and which one can’t and facts must play a role and not opinion. Truth unfortunately has never been popular as the truth of the Govt of which takes on the form of an opinion as this goes against the accepted opinion in which we see today.

We see events reported as to give us a controlled opinion to develop a consensus of a popular opinion so that will become our truth as we are told to accept it , to not accept it is to go against all things sacred. This is how they control and manipulate the truth to persuade us to create a popular opinion, while if we were to question it and approached it scientifically and arrived at another conclusion this would be an unpopular opinion.

The only way to continue to combat this type of consensus is if more were to look at things from a view of scientific and testing to see if there are any holes in the popular opinion to get to the truth.


The stupidity of it is that people remain silent about things they don’t support. It’s illegal to discriminate against LGBTiQ people in my country and yours, and yet most of us really dislike LGBTiQ ideology, even if we tolerate people of that persuasion. The next step is to make it illegal to assert that you’re straight / Christian / etc. Mind you, the Romans did that before, and look how that turned out.

George King

Have you about had enough yet? I have!

“Sixteen years of endless wars, endless spending, endless killing, endless dying, endless environmental destruction, endless erosion of our rights, endless suppression of activism, endless militarization of police, endless promotion of bigotry and hatred, endless generation of hatred and terrorism, endless threats of nuclear apocalypse”.
Can we make it end now?
