"If Walls Don’t Work, Why Did Castles Have Them?"

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Senior Editorial Writer 

Signature News Reporter 

Global News Aruba

Indeed, why the Great Wall of China, why Hadrian’s Wall, why the Constantinople wall, why were there walled cities, why the Israeli Wall that keeps Palestinians out of Palestine?

Walls do work, according to President Obama’s former Border Patrol Chief, Mark Morgan: https://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/former-border-patrol-chief-for-president-obama-says-walls-work/

During the Obama regime, US Senator Schumer and US Rep. Pelosi agreed with President Obama that Walls do work and supported building a wall. Why do they oppose a wall now? The answer, obvious on the surface, is that with the presstitutes lined up against The Wall, Democrats can use the issue against Trump. However, this answer is not as good as it looks. Polls show that Trump has a far higher approval rating than the presstitute media and that Americans want the wall. So the question becomes: why have the Democrats lined up against the American people by opposing a wall? Why do Democrats oppose Americans having their own country as a place where American citizens live? Why do Democrats want America to be up for grabs by everyone who can illegally cross the border?

The answer, I think, is not just the immigrant vote, but also that in the last decade Democrats have become firmly allied with the ideology of Identity Politics, which teaches that “whiteness” needs to be dismantled, that is, done away with. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/01/14/identity-politics-white-genocide/ To have a massive inflow of nonwhites is a way to “decenter whiteness.” I would wager that if the illigal immigrants were white Europeans, the Democrats would be all for building The Wall.

Readers sometimes complain about my characterization of Americans as insouciant, but what is more stupid than a white American that supports a political party that wants to do away with “whiteness”?

Unfortunately for Americans, it is not only Democrats who represent non-citizens at the expense of citizens. The Republicans do it, too, as does President Trump. For example, two days ago (January 14, 2019) President Trump signed a bill, Combating European Anti-Semitism Act, passed by the House and Senate that commits the United States government to monitoring anti-semitic incidents in Europe and to partner with European governments, the EU, and NGOs to combat anti-semitism and ensure the safety and security of European Jews. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/672/text?format=txt

Think about this for a moment. Why is anti-semitism in Europe a US government affair? Why is it the sense of Congress that it is in the national interest of the United States to combat anti-Semitism abroad? What does the bill define as anti-semitism? Anti-semitism is criticism or ridicule or hurtful allegations about Jews and Israel and questions about the holocaust. Why not also bills prohibiting criticism, ridicule, and hurtful allegations about Russia, China, Venezuela, Syria, Palestinians, Turkey, Japan, UK, Germany, France, Greece, and everyone else? Why only Jews?

The bill Trump signed finds that Jews in Europe are victims of terrorist attacks, but so are all of the people in Europe, except perhaps for Hungary, the government of which refused to let the illegal immigrants in. Everywhere in Europe, Europeans are being murdered, robbed, and raped by immigrants whose entry into Europe is blamed by many Europeans on a Jew, George Soros. Why are the US Congress and President concerned only with attacks on Jews? Where is the concern of the Congress and President Trump for South African whites who are being murdered and dispossessed by their black government or with the Palestinians who are suffering the same from Israel. Why did President Trump cut off financial aid to the severely pressed Palestinians who are literally being murdered in their beds by Israelis?

And it gets worse. Six days ago the US House of Representatives passed by a vote of 411 to 1 a bill that requires President Trump to appoint with the rank of Ambassador an envoy to monitor and combat criticisms of Israel. This position in the US government was demanded by an Israeli minister, Natan Sharansky. The Israel Lobby wrote the legislation and there you have it. Washington again handed over American sovereignty to Israel. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50925.htm

Not a single presstitute has ever asked why it is only off limits to criticize Jews and Israel. How can it be that alone among the peoples of the world Israelis are so fragile that they are utterly destroyed by criticism? How can it be that the story of the holocaust is so shaky that it must not be examined? Do the Jewish people, especially the Israeli component, really want to be perceived as so weak that criticism destroys them? Do Jews want to be known as a people who cannot survive criticism? Why do the Jewish lobbies advertise and promote Jewish vulnerability to words? How can a people capable of standing up to bullets be slayed by words?

One would think that criticism of Russia and China, especially with hostile and untruthful criticism, would be of much greater concern. Russia and China are individually capable of wiping North America, Europe, Australia, Japan, any part of the world they want, off the face of the earth in a few minutes.

An intelligent American government, perhaps that is an oxymoron, would have an envoy to monitor the hostile criticisms of Russia and China that could easily lead to nuclear Armageddon. But the fate of the world is not a concern to the US government that is comparable to the enormous concern that no Israeli be held accountable or experience hurt feelings.

Indeed, the reckless and irresponsible attacks on Russia have now breached academic integrity. Georgetown University, a private Catholic university in word if not in deed, whose graduates often end up in Washington positions, has hired a lobbyist identified with the Podesta Group, lobbyists associated with Hillary Clinton. The lobbyist, now professor, was also a registered foreign agent for the government of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, a country that Washington misused to test Russian resolve to Georgia’s detriment, was hired to teach Georgetown University students lies about Russia in order to create a replacement generation of “Russian threat” propagandists. https://medium.com/@DustinGiebel/molly-mckew-information-warfare-expert-96ce6829df1b

Here is the course description. If you believe this crude propaganda has any place in an university cirriulum, you are crazy. https://www.coursicle.com/georgetown/courses/IPOL/401/

Members of the Georgetown faculty are perplexed by the appointment. What has happened to the university’s integrity? I think the answer is money.

In the United States today, nothing is important but money. Some component of those who benefit financially from promoting conflict with Russia has come up with the money, or the threat to existing money, to cause the university to sell its integrity, or whatever is left of the university’s integrity.

Meanwhile, Identity Politics’ attack on white people continues to undermine the confidence of the Western countries even as Western politicians press harder against the Russians and Chinese. In Germany, a people completely destroyed by Washington, perhaps forever, Identity Politics rules supreme. A 60-page manual written for German kindergarden teachers and administrators teaches how to identify children from “far-right” possibly Nazi families. If the little girls wear dresses and have braided hair, their parents are “far-right.” https://www.rt.com/news/445730-german-kindergarten-brochure-right/

This shows what Identity Politics has brought us to. All of my life little girls wore dresses and had braided hair. There was no such suggestion that their parents were Nazis. Obviously, little German girls are supposed, in keeping with Identity Politics, to dress like the illegal immigrants that have been permitted to overrun their country.

Identity Politics regards every semblance of Western Civilization as something that must be overthrown. Russia herself will not be immune from this ideology.

Gillette (owned by Procter & Gamble) makes its money by selling products to men, but the Identity Politics attack on men is now so much part of the culture that dependency on male expenditures did not stop Gillette from sponsoring a video advertisement that stereotypes men as bullies and rapists. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koPmuEyP3a0

Gillette has apparently also been a leader in breaking the “glass ceiling” and putting women in control. According to one Gillette employee, women are using their power to exclulde men, which is what feminists accuse men of doing to women. You can find this comment on the above video (if it hasn’t been taken down): “I work for P&G the company which owns Gillette. I have to tell you that this stuff goes all the way to the top. A VP said in a 100 person meeting that she will never promote a white man again. There was a diversity training I was forced to go to that put up 2 pictures, one of a white male team, and one of non-whites and we were asked “I know its an obvious answer, but look at these 2 teams, which would you rather work with?” Then they hired a black intern right out of college, he was decent but not great, and had his summer boss give him an offer letter. The salary was 15% higher than the manager which had worked for the company for 13 years. The manager quit 2 weeks later, the project they were working on fell apart. I’ve never been more miserable working anywhere in my life.”

President Trump is the hate poster boy of Identity Politics. Trump cannot even use a common figure of speech without the Washington Post turning it into a claim and then exposing it as a lie.
Describing the hamburger feast he offered the football players, he said the White House served up hamburgers “a mile high.” The Washington Post fact checked the claim and proved no such quantity of hamburgers were served.

When the President of the United States cannot use a common non-racist, non-sexist, non-homophobic expression without being branded a liar, open season has been declared on white heterosexual American males. Vladimir Putin has made a good decision to sit patiently unresponsive to provocations while the United States destroys itself.

"The National Security Agency Is A Criminal Organization"

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Senior Editorial Writer 

Signature News Reporter 

Global News Aruba

Years before Edward Snowden provided documented proof that the National Security Agency was really a national insecurity agency as it was violating law and the US Constitution and spying indiscriminately on American citizens, William Binney, who designed and developed the NSA spy program revealed the illegal and unconstitutional spying. Binney turned whistleblower, because NSA was using the program to spy on Americans. As Binney was well known to the US Congress, he did not think he needed any NSA document to make his case. But what he found out was “Congress would never hear me because then they’d lose plausible deniability. That was really their key. They needed to have plausible deniability so they can continue this massive spying program because it gave them power over everybody in the world. Even the members of Congress had power against others [in Congress]; they had power on judges on the Supreme Court, the federal judges, all of them. That’s why they’re so afraid. Everybody’s afraid because all this data that’s about them, the central agencies — the intelligence agencies — they have it. And that’s why Senator Schumer warned President Trump earlier, a few months ago, that he shouldn’t attack the intelligence community because they’ve got six ways to Sunday to come at you. That’s because it’s like J. Edgar Hoover on super steroids. . . . it’s leverage against every member of parliament and every government in the world.”

To prevent whistle-blowing, NSA has “a program now called ‘see something, say something’ about your fellow workers. That’s what the Stasi did. That’s why I call [NSA] the new New Stasi Agency. They’re picking up all the techniques from the Stasi and the KGB and the Gestapo and the SS. They just aren’t getting violent yet that we know of — internally in the US, outside is another story.”

As Binney had no documents to give to the media, blowing the whistle had no consequence for NSA. This is the reason that Snowden released the documents that proved NSA to be violating both law and the Constitution, but the corrupt US media focused blame on Snowden as a “traitor” and not on NSA for its violations.

Whistleblowers are protected by federal law. Regardless, the corrupt US government tried to prosecute Binney for speaking out, but as he had taken no classified document, a case could not be fabricated against him.

Binney blames the NSA’s law-breaking on Dick “Darth” Cheney. He says NSA’s violations of law and Constitution are so extreme that they would have to have been cleared at the top of the government.

Binney describes the spy network, explains that it was supposed to operate only against foreign enemies, and that using it for universal spying so overloads the system with data that the system fails to discover many terrorist activities. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50932.htm

Apparently, the National Security Agency values being able to blackmail citizens and members of government at home and abroad more than preventing terrorist attacks.

Unfortunately for Americans, there are many Americans who blindly trust the government and provide the means, the misuse of which is used to enslave us. A large percentage of the work in science and technology serves not to free people but to enslave them. By now there is no excuse for scientists and engineers not to know this. Yet they persist in their construction of the means to destroy liberty.

" Identity Politics = White Genocide "

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Senior Editorial Writer 

Signature News Reporter 

Global News Aruba

The subversion of fact-based science and scholarship by the emotion-based ideology of Identity Politics is laying the groundwork for the genocide of white people. This sounds like an outlandish statement. However, it follows logically from the identification of white people with violence, oppression, and every evil in the world.

In a number of columns I have reported examples of attacks on scientists for concluding on the basis of their research that race, gender, and intelligence have a genetic basis. As I am not educated in genetics, I cannot attest to the truth, falsity, or extent of genetic differences. My interest is limited to the suppression of scientific findings by ideology. We are reliving the Catholic Church’s suppression of the evidence, and punishment of those who presented it, that the earth revolved around the sun and not vice versa. We are reliving the belief in witches that resulted in the execution of innocent people in Salem, Massachusetts, during 1692-93. We are reliving the destruction of Soviet genetics by Trofim Lysenko and Stalin.

And scientists and scholars are too intimidated to speak out.

Consider, for example, the case of James D. Watson who was rightly awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery with Francis Crick of the double-helix structure of DNA, the molecule containing human genes. This was no mean feat. One would think that such a scientist would be entitled to his conviction that there is a genetic basis for intelligence. In the world of yesteryear, that was the case, but not in today’s Identity Politics world. Watson was stripped of his positions as Chancellor Emeritus, Oliver R Grace Professor Emeritus, and honorary trustee of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory that he long led and brought to prominence, because he expressed his conclusion that genes explain differences in average IQ scores among races.

We do know that there are IQ differences between Asians, Europeans, Blacks, and Jews. A large number of studies have come to this conclusion. But the emotion-based ideology of Identity Politics maintains that the difference is caused by environment, and the lower average IQ for blacks is caused by an environment of “white oppression.” It is not clear how this Identity Politics explanation of average IQ differences explains why Asian and Jewish average IQs are higher than the average for blacks. Asians and Jews are not races that Identity Politics identifies with oppression of blacks.

The environmental explanation of IQ differences is being established by assertion as the “scientific explanation.” There are some science-based findings, or findings said to be science-based, that environment explains in whole or part IQ differences. Normally, the scientific procedure would be for the two different findings to compete based on the evidence and convincing power of the rival explanations. However, instead of being declared wrong, Watson was declared to be a racial bigot whose views are unacceptable. The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory declared Watson’s conclusion to be “reprehensible,” “reckless” and “unsupported by science.” Somehow, a scientist who discovered the structure of DNA is not entitled to express his opinion. https://news.sky.com/story/dna-pioneer-james-watson-stripped-of-honours-after-reckless-race-remarks-11606108

This is an extremely serious interference into scientific inquiry by an ideology. What has happened to Watson is what happened to Soviet geneticists. Today, as I reported in a previous column, scientists who investigate genetic differences have to do so underground in the way that Samizdat operated during the Soviet era.

How does this relate to the opening sentence of this column? What does the suppression of scientific inquiry have to do with genocide of white people?

The answer is that the same Identity Politics that interferes in scientific inquiry in order to be able to blame lower average black IQ scores on “white oppression” creates a range of other “facts” that demonize white peoples. People who are demonized, as blacks are doing to South African whites, and as Israelis have successfully done to Palestinians by convincing Americans that every Palestinian is a terrorist intent on murdering Jews, are set up for very bad things happening to them. (See, for example, http://www.radiofreesouthafrica.com/warning-graphic-shocking-torture-of-white-african-farmers/ , and http://markcrispinmiller.com/2019/01/with-gaza-blacked-out-by-the-new-york-times-et-al-heres-word-on-what-the-people-there-are-going-through/ )

It is now commonplace for white people to be pilloried, even by other white people, for innocently using words or terms or allusions long used but given by Identity Politics and political correctness new racist or sexist meanings. Classics are being removed from bookshelves because of “inappropriate language.” People are fired, such as the senior engineer at Google, for stating such obvious truths as “men and women have different traits and are good at different tasks.” Everyone has to be the same, regardless of any facts. Indeed, if a man wants to self-identify as a woman or a woman as a man, that is their right. When a tennis champion said that it is unfair for a person with a penis to self-identify as a woman and be permitted to enter women’s sport contests, she had to apologize. People who have to apologize and who are punished for stating obvious facts are in an extremely weak position.

This is what has happened to white people. They have been forced into the position that they cannot defend themselves without being branded “white supremacists,” which elicits more demonization of them. Many white people themselves have been brainwashed into apologizing for being white.

Whereas it is increasingly dangerous for a white person to open his mouth, anything can be said about white people. For example, a student publication at Texas State University declared that white DNA is an abomination and that white people are oppressors who should not be allowed to exist. The Hispanic author went on to write that “white death means liberation for all.”https://www.foxnews.com/us/texas-student-newspaper-blasted-over-anti-white-your-dna-is-an-abomination-column So we have a Texas college newspaper that sounds exactly like the radical black leadership in South Africa that demands “death to whites” and sings songs at political rallies about killing whites.

Imagine the fate of a white person who declared black DNA to be an abomination and that blacks should not be allowed to exist.

I have reported many examples of the double-standard that exists. The problem with such double-standards is that they create a sub-class of people who are guilty by definition and thereby cannot defend themselves without proving their guilt.

As the demonization of white people goes unchallenged, it becomes more extreme. In 2018 a black woman, Lisa Anderson-Levy, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Anthropology at Beloit College gave an invited lecture at the University of Minnesota in which she explained that “whiteness” is an existential threat to the United States and needs to be dismantled. The need to “decenter whiteness” is “one of the most urgent social dilemmas of our time.” She went on to declare objective truth impossible as teaching is “a political act,” except, of course, the teachings of Identity Politics. Only “whiteness” teachings are a political act. https://www.rt.com/usa/421447-professor-dismantling-whiteness-lecture/

Her defenders will make the point that when she denounces “the violence of whiteness” she is not referring, or at least not exclusively, to the physical violence of the KKK, slavers, imperialist and colonialist exploiters. She means the entire range of Western civilization. It is all “whiteness”—science, mathematics, history, language and its use, ways of thinking and acting, everything. We are all, including whites, threatened by this “whiteness.”

Here is a person, being honored by the University of Minnesota in a program used to “highlight sucessful alumni” of the university who wants to get rid of whiteness but emphasizes her commitment to “diversity, inclusivity, and equity.” Notice the new meaning that Identity Politics has given to “inclusivity.” It now means the dismantling of “whiteness.” So how are whites included? What she is really talking about is getting rid of whites, and to the applause of many whites.

What would be her fate if she was talking about dismantling “blackness”? She would be demonized and instantly fired.

It is clear that although white people are still a majority in their countries, they are victims of Identity Politics, which has white people so demonized that they are able to defend themselves only at the cost of being labeled “white supremacists.”

Everywhere we see among white people a loss of confidence. In England’s Cambridge University a small number of protesting students has succeeded in convincing the university that it is guilty of “institutional racism” for teaching English literature and English history rather than black and minority literature and history. The idea that the function of education is to inculcate people into their culture is now damned as the elevation of whiteness. https://www.rt.com/uk/407710-cambridge-university-black-literature/

In Jean Raspail’s novel, The Camp of the Saints, white Europeans are forbidden to marry and are bred out of existence. The novel could just as well have ended with blue-eyed blonds being bred as sex slaves to perpetuate the memory of the triumph of “sun people” over whiteness.https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-1991-09-17-1991260039-story.html (Dr. Ulmar Johnson explains the difference between sun people or blacks and ice people or whites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZUk_Q-qawk . Here is another telling of the story:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Loca1je5rSk . Clearly, this ideology leads to exclusion, not inclusion.)

"A Majority of Americans Do Not Believe the Official 9/11 Story" = “Conspiracy Theorists” Now A Majority

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts 

Signature News Reporter 

Global News Aruba

(Atlanta & Washington DC USA )

TruePublica, a British website that has avoided the 9/11 issue, has had its fill of ignorant journalists at the BBC, Huffington Post and other propagandists for the military/security complex. The constant, shrill demeaning of experts and distinguished people who have raised questions about the official story has convinced TruePublica that skeptics who need so much shouting down must have a point.

The media has NEVER EXAMINED the evidence or explained the analysis provided by scientists, architects, engineers, pilots, and the first responders who experienced the explosions of the World Trade Center twin towers. The media has never asked for the release of the multiple videos that recorded whatever struck the Pentagon. The media has never investigated whether cell phones worked in 2001 from the altitudes at which the official story claims calls were made.

Instead two-bit punk presstitutes, such as the BBC’s Chris Bell and the Huffington Post’s Jess Brammer andl Chris York, label experts with knowledge and integrity “conspiracy theorists.” These presstitutes knowingly use a cover-up term that the CIA put into use via its media assets to discredit the expert skeptics of the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President Kennedy.

The fact that the carefully presented evidence is NEVER ENGAGED EXCEPT WITH NAME-CALLING is a strong indication that the evidence is true and cannot be refuted.

TruePublica is such a mainline site that, in its own words, it does not even “publish news sourced by RT,” a far more reliable source of news than the BBC, CNN, or New York Times. However, it has dawned on TruePublica that after 18 years an ad hominem attack remains the only defense of the official story. The official account has NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER. It rests entirely on the AVOIDANCE OF EVIDENCE and on unverified assertions.

The success of the 9/11 Lawyers’ Committee in obtaining the consent of the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York to “comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. 3332,” which requires the convening of a federal grand jury to examine the unexamined 9/11 evidence, has impressed TruePublica as no US attorney would convene a grand jury on the basis of a conspiracy theory. Clearly compelling evidence has been presented to the US Attorney.

Obviously, Washington expects the Justice (sic) Department to escape from the bind into which it has been put by the Lawyer’s Committee, an escape that the presstitute media will aid and abet. Nevertheless, the escape will likely reinforce the public’s view that the government is afraid of the evidence and is no more likely to follow it than in the case of President Kennedy’s assassination, Robert Kennedy’s assassination, the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty and a large number of other officially covered up crimes.

More and more people will come to realize that ad hominem name-calling is not an acceptable response to evidence.

Some Interesting New Information About 9/11

TruePublica.org.uk

https://truepublica.org.uk/global/some-interesting-new-information-about-9-11/

TruePublica Editor: We have published almost nothing about 9/11 on TruePublica. When independent news outlets do, they are immediately branded by the mainstream media and so-called ‘fact-checkers’ as conspiracy theorists. The BBC makes this point precisely in a 2018 article that starts like this – “On 11 September 2001, four passenger planes were hijacked by radical Islamist terrorists – almost 3,000 people were killed as the aircraft were flown into the World Trade Centre, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field. Just hours after the collapse of New York’s Twin Towers, a conspiracy theory surfaced online which persists more than 16 years later.”

The entire article is dedicated to all the ‘conspiracy theories’ involved in 9/11 and makes a mockery of anyone or anything that questions the official government line. They even heavily mock the brother of one man killed in 9/11 and frankly, true or not, the BBC’s report itself is rather sickening to read.

And yet, here we are, all these years later and it’s hardly surprising the theories of a conspiracy continue.

A 2016 study from Chapman University in California, found more than half of the American people believe the government is concealing information about the 9/11 attacks. This is in part because, large sections of the official US government report were redacted for years – and is still missing to this day.

The big problem is that the government is withholding crucial evidence. And then there’s other evidence the state and mainstream media refuse to even consider.

Paul Craig Roberts is an American economist and former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan. Roberts was an associate editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal and columnist for Business Week and has received the Warren Brookes Award for Excellence in Journalism. In 1993 the Forbes Media Guide ranked him as one of the top seven journalists in the United States.

Roberts wrote this really interesting piece of information just a few days ago that the mainstream media has been completely silent about: “Although the United States is allegedly a democracy with a rule of law, it has taken 17 years for public pressure to bring about the first grand jury investigation of 9/11. Based on the work of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth led by Richard Gage, first responder and pilots organizations, books by David Ray Griffin and others, and eyewitness testimony, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry has presented enough hard facts to the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York to force his compliance with the provisions of federal law that require the convening of a federal grand jury to investigate for the first time the attacks of September 11, 2001. https://www.lawyerscommitteefor9-11inquiry.org

This puts the US Justice (sic) Department in an extraordinary position. There will be tremendous pressures on the US Attorney’s office to have the grand jury dismiss the evidence as an unpatriotic conspiracy theory or otherwise maneuver to discredit the evidence presented by the Lawyers’ Committee, or modify the official account without totally discrediting it.

“What the 9/11 truthers and the Lawyers’ Committee have achieved is the destruction of the designation of 9/11 skeptics as “conspiracy theorists.” No US Attorney would convene a grand jury on the basis of a conspiracy theory. Clearly, the evidence is compelling that has put the US Attorney in an unenviable position.”

If the Lawyers’ Committee and the 9/11 truthers trust the US Attorney to go entirely by the facts, little will come of the grand jury. If the United States had a rule of law, something as serious as 9/11 could not have gone for 17 years without investigation.”

Three weeks before Roberts’ made this statement a letter was published by Off-Guardian about a Huffington Post hit piece about an academic teaching journalism. Its first paragraph explains entirely its own position.

“An academic teaching journalism students at one of the UK’s top universities has publicly supported long-discredited conspiracy theories about the 9/11 terror attack, HuffPost UK can reveal.”

This entire article, like that of the BBC’s, vigorously attacks any individual or organisation that has the temerity to question the ‘official’ narrative on any major incident as offered up by the state, such as the Skripal poisonings, Syria’s chemical weapons, Iraq and Chilcot Report.

HuffPost even uses an unnamed former head of MI6 and an unnamed former Supreme Commander of Nato to dispel such challenges to this narrative and then attacks other sources of news such as RT as nothing more than Russian propaganda irrespective of the source. As a rule, TruePublica does not publish news sourced by RT but that does not make all of its content propaganda.

David Ray Griffin, a retired American professor and political writer who founded the Center for Process Studies which seeks to promote the common good by means of the relational approach found in process thought was the co-author of the book ‘9/11 Unmasked’ – part of the attack piece was centered on by the HuffPost hit piece.

The head of the 9/11 Consensus Panel, the other co-author, responded to the HuffPost.  For information, the goal of the Consensus Panel is to “provide a ready source of evidence-based research to any investigation that may be undertaken by the public, the media, academia, or any other investigative body or institution.”

That letter is as follows:

Jess Brammer, UK Huffington Post
Chris York, UK Huffington Post

Dear Ms. Brammar and Mr. York:

I was the head information specialist serving the Medical Health Officers of British Columbia, Canada, for 25 years.

Your attack piece on Professor Piers Robinson and on the scholarly work of Dr. David Ray Griffin is the least accurate and the lowest quality published article I have ever seen.

I have assisted Dr. Griffin with 10 of his investigative books into the events of 9/11. In 2011 we decided to create the international 9/11 Consensus Panel to review and evaluate the official claims relating to September 11, 2001. The Panel we formed has 23 members, including people from the fields of physics, chemistry, structural engineering, aeronautical engineering, piloting, airplane crash investigation, medicine, journalism, psychology, and religion.

In seeking a consensus methodology, I was advised by the former provincial epidemiologist of British Columbia to employ a leading model that is used in medicine to establish the best diagnostic and treatment evidence to guide the world’s doctors using medical consensus statements.

The Panel methodology has produced, seven years later, 51 refutations of the official claims, which were published as 911 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation in September, 2018.https://www.amazon.com/11-Unmasked-International-Review-Investigation/dp/1623719747

Each Consensus Point, now a chapter in this book, was given three rounds of review and feedback by the Panel members. The panelists were blind to one another throughout the process, providing strictly uninfluenced individual feedback. Any Points that did not receive 85% approval by the third round were set aside.

The Honorary Members of the Panel include the late British (and longest-serving) parliamentarian Michael Meacher, the late evolutionary biologist Lynn Margulis, and the late Honorary President of the Italian Supreme Court, Ferdinando Imposimato.

The Huffington Post drastically lowered its standards to publish this hit piece, and what influenced it to do so is a question worth pursuing.
Yours truly,
Elizabeth Woodworth, Co-author with Dr. David Ray Griffin of 9/11 Unmasked

TruePublica continues:
It is over 18 years now since the world-changing event of 9/11. One wonders when the information held by the American government, that continues to anger so many people affected by it will ever emerge.

However, one reason why such questions persist is precisely that of the actions of the US government itself. One should not forget those so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ that actually came true that continues to pour petrol on the flames of doubt.

For example, the American government killed thousands by poisoning alcohol to prove its point that alcohol was bad for the general public during prohibition. This was a ‘conspiracy theory’ that went on for decades – until it was proven to be true. https://slate.com/technology/2010/02/the-little-told-story-of-how-the-u-s-government-poisoned-alcohol-during-prohibition.html

Then, you can take your pick of the lies government tells when it comes to starting wars – how about the lie the Saddam Hussain and Iraq had WMD ready to fire at Western targets. Total deaths exceeded 1 million. Yet another classic American lie was the Gulf of Tonkin incident in August 1964, as a pretext for escalating the country’s involvement in the Vietnam War that killed 60,000 American soldiers. Total deaths racked up 1.35 million, all based on a lie. That incident only came about because of an unintentional declassification of an NSA file in 2005.

Edward Snowden proved with his revelations in 2013 that the government was spying on everyone when the government had denied they had ever done so. It took a whistleblower to let us all know. The UK government has been found by the highest courts in the land to have broken numerous privacy and surveillance laws as a result of mass civilian surveillance systems.

Operation Mockingbird was a US government operation where journalists were paid to publish CIA propaganda, only uncovered by the Watergate scandal. It took a thief to unknowingly capture secret documents and recordings for the public to find out.

The list goes on and on – just as 9/11 will, so it will be interesting to see how the US Attorney, presented with evidence from so many prominent professionals will bury yet more 9/11 evidence. Don’t hold your breath though, the same questions will, no doubt, still be being asked in another 18 years time.

" The Latest Job Report Is Another Fiction "

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Global News Aruba's Signature News Reporter

( Atlanta, GA & Washington, DC )

There were not 312,000 new jobs created in December.

Nevermind. Where does the Bureau of Labor Statistics tell us 

the jobs are.

Health care and social assistance together with leisure and hospitality account for 36% of the new jobs, with 40,000 new waitresses and bartenders. Retail trade (possible as December is the Christmas month) and administrative and waste services account for 16%. Over half of the new jobs are concentrated in lowly paid and part time sectors.

What about the jobs that people who go to college expect to get? A lot of MBAs are awarded. What of their prospects? In December 400 were hired for management of companies and enterprises. What about lawyers? Employment in legal services declined by 600 jobs. 1,400 people found jobs in architectural and engineering services. 2,200 in computer systems design and related services. These job categories accounted for 1% of the new jobs.

You get the picture. Even if the jobs the BLS claims are actually there, they are not the kind of jobs that bring upward mobility and encourage robust consumer spending. Today, short on discretionary income, most Americans have to use debt to finance their spending. An economy based on debt is a financialized economy.

"When Guns Are Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Have Guns"

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Global News Aruba's Signature News Reporter

( Atlanta, GA & Washington, DC )

Guns are banned in the UK, but the black market is booming

 and criminals are loading up on firearms.

https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/when-proggies-advocate-for-uk-style-gun-control-laws-show-them-this-police-struggle-to-stop-flood-of-firearms-into-uk/

I have often wondered what is the real agenda of gun ban advocates. More people die from falls than from being shot. Deaths from accidents far exceed deaths from being shot.

The FBI reports that there were 1,247,321 violent crimes in the US in 2017. https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/topic-pages/violent-crime

Aggravated assault and robbery account for 91% of violent crimes. Rapes account for 7.7%. Murders accounted for only 1.4% of violent crime. https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2016-crime-statistics-released

According to the FBI, there were 17,284 murders in 2017. https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/topic-pages/murder

Assailants using rifles killed 403 people, and 1,591 were killed by people using knives. Handguns were used in 7,032 killings, many of which resulted from criminals killing one another over, for example, drug distribution.
https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-8.xls
See also: https://www.statista.com/statistics/195325/murder-victims-in-the-us-by-weapon-used/

The police were responsible for 987 shooting deaths, about one-fourth of which were mentally disturbed people. https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/nationwide-police-shot-and-killed-nearly-1000-people-in-2017/2018/01/04/4eed5f34-e4e9-11e7-ab50-621fe0588340_story.html?utm_term=.c7ff0f9c8b3d

There were 40,327 motor vehicle accident deaths in 2017. About 4,000 people died from drowning. There were 34,673 deaths from accidental falls. There were 58,335 accidental poisoning deaths. All unintentional deaths totalled 161,374. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/accidental-injury.htm

It turns out that prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death, which puts it up there with cancer and heart attacks. Harvard University reports that properly prescribed medications hospitalize 1.9 million Americans annually, killing 128,000 people, which places prescribed medicines fourth place with strokes as a leading cause of death. Far more lives could be saved by focusing on careful drug testing rather than on gun control. https://ethics.harvard.edu/blog/new-prescription-drugs-major-health-risk-few-offsetting-advantages

What then explains the fixation and constant propaganda about banning “assault rifles” when the total annual murders by assailants using all kinds of rifles is 403?

What explains the fixation on handguns that are the weapon of choice in only 41% of murders numbering only 7,032 deaths?

What is the point of disarming the population when private ownership of firearms prevents a large number of crimes. A study by criminologists Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz concluded that Americans use their guns annually to prevent more than 2 million crimes. https://scholarlycommons.law.northwestern.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=&httpsredir=1&article=6853&context=jclc

John Lott also found that gun ownership reduces crime. https://www.investors.com/politics/columnists/how-many-lives-are-saved-by-guns-and-why-dont-gun-controllers-care/

Those who advocate banning gun ownership demur, claiming guns are used defensively 100,000 times a year. Why then do gun controllers want to take away guns that prevent crimes six times the number of homicides?

Those who want to ban guns use deceptive and dishonest terms such as “gun violence,” an illiterate use of language. Guns are inanimate objects like a hammer or a screwdriver. They are not capable of taking action such as committing violence. They have to be used or misused by people intent on committing violence. Therefore, there can be no such thing as “gun violence.” There can only be violence committed by people using guns or hammers or screwdrivers, or whatever.

Murders committed by assailants using handguns comprise a tiny 0.0056% of violent crimes. What explains the fixation on such a small problem?

Moreover, gun ban advocates, who so deplore the deaths by “gun violence” of Americans they have never met, are short on sympathy for the millions of victims of American gun violence in the Middle East and North Africa. They show no concern about the mounting conflicts orchestrated by Washington with Russia and China, conflicts that could destroy all life on earth in nuclear Armageddon.

Clearly, gun ban advocates are insincere about the few deaths of strangers that they so greatly deplore and use their insincerity to disguise an undeclared agenda.

Their agenda is the disarming of the American people, a people already disarmed of the protections of the US Constitution by the fake “war on terror.” The only remaining barrier to tyrannized Americans is the large percentage of the population that is armed and skilled in the use of “gun violence.”

Who funds the gun banners? Who is behind the long-standing and continuous assault on the Second Amendment of the US Constitution? What is the agenda behind the assault?

The First Amendment has already fallen. No white American any longer has free speech. It has become a firing offense. A lawsuit offense. A career-ending offense. The Jewish lobbies’ and the liberal/progressive/left and Democratic Party’s Identity Politics have murdered the First Amendment. Exercise your First Amendment rights and Antifa appears outside your home or at your restaurant table threatening you with violence.

The American media has been turned into a Propaganda Ministry for war in behalf of US hegemony over the world and in behalf of Washington’s and Israel’s control over the explanations fed to the American population. The New York Times, “the newspaper of record,” will leave a shameful, sordid record if anyone is left to read it.

The Demise of the West: Part I

Do White People Have A Future?

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Identity Politics is now the defining characteristic of the liberal/progressive/left and the political ideology of the Democratic Party. It is an ideology of hatred preached against people whose skin is white. Identity Politics is completely inconsistent with a multicultural society.

The West used economic pressure to force South Africa to turn over the government to blacks. The situation remained more or less stable as long as there was only one black political party. However, the appearance of a second black political party resulted in a contest for power based on a competition as to which party hated white South Africans the most. The result is:http://www.radiofreesouthafrica.com/warning-graphic-shocking-torture-of-white-african-farmers/

It will be interesting to see if the emerging black apartheid South African state will experience the West’s disapproval and economic sanction sufficient to restore safety to white citizens of South Africa, or whether the black apartheid state will be accepted like the Israeli apartheid state.

The remaining white majority populations in the US and Europe are already being moved into second class citizenship. Only white people can be guilty of hate speech and hate crimes, and only minorities can be “offended.” As white people, despite still a majority in Western countries, have already lost free speech and other rights, what prospects do they have when they become a minority?

Have the corrupt and traitorous politicians in Europe and North America who multiculturalized the Western countries set the stage for the genocide of whites?

Time will tell.

The Demise of the West: Part II

Western Elites Are Anti-Democratic

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

It is customary to speak of Western countries as democracies. In actual fact, the countries are oligarchies in which voting, which conveys the semblance that government is accountable to the people, seldom changes anything as elected officials are constrained by the power of organized interest groups. President Trump is the latest example. He has been blocked in his goal of reducing tensions with Russia.

The European Union has been an anti-democratic undertaking from the beginning. Deception was the method. At first it was a free trade zone. Then a common currency. Then unified fiscal policies which means centralization and political union with formerly sovereign countries becoming provinces in a European government. Countries that voted down joining were subjected to threats and browbeating and forced to vote again by which time the media had convinced the people that they had no alternative to joining or they would be “left behind” in a backwater existence.

Despite the facts, politicians maintained the fiction that EU member countries remained democratic and responsive to the will of their citizens. German Chancellor Merkel, who ended her career by her unilateral decision to impose a million or more illegal Third World immigrants on Germans and Germans’ resources, destroyed this fiction.

Merkel clearly does not care what the German people think. She revealed again her total disdain for democracy at a recent event of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin where she condemned those who think political leaders should listen to the will of the people. The German people, she said, are just “individuals who are living in a country; they do not define the German people.” The German people are whoever migrates to Germany as a result of the UN Migration Pact that she signed despite its rejection by the German citizens of Germany. “Nation states,” Merkel declared, “must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty.” Politicians must not listen, she said, to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, and sovereignty.

The French president, Emmanuel Macron, backed her up. Macron declared that French “nationalism is treason.” In other words, it is treason to think that France is French. Patriotism, Macron said, is inclusion of Africa, the Middle East, and Asia into France. The way for the French to gain sovereignty is to surrender their sovereignty to the EU in Belgium and give up all control, not that any currently exists, over foreign affairs, migration, and budgetary and fiscal policy.

Merkel and Macron speak of the submission of Germany and France to the New World Order, but they do not say what they understand the New World Order to be. Their words indicate that one of its features is the replacement of the German and French populations and cultures with those of the Third World, as in The Camp of the Saints.

In the US the New World Order means US hegemony over the world. The neoconservatives, who have controlled US foreign policy since the Clinton regime, believe that the US is “the indispensable nation” with the right and the responsibility to impose its ways on the world.

The globalist corporations understand the New World Order to be their immunity to laws of sovereign countries.

Others see the New World Order to be a Rothschild or other Jewish conspiracy to control the world economy and bleed it for their profits.

With so many different meanings, it is difficult to see which conspiracy against national existence is the threat. Or is it all of them?

Nevertheless, in the Western world, nationalism, the traditional basis of patriotism, now means, thanks to Identity Politics, “white supremacy.” According to Identity Politics, the ruling ideology in the US, white people must be disempowered and subjected to punishments for the assortment of crimes attributed to them.

Therefore, the views in the US, France, and Germany come to the same conclusion: white people are guilty and must give up their country to others. Any protests of this outlandish requirement is proof that whites should be strung up, and they likely will be with the support of their own governments. Do we see the first signs of it here?
