Does anyone notice?

By Paul Craig Roberts

On September 17, I posted my column, “Evidence is no longer a Western value.” I used as an example the blame that has been put on Russia for the shot down Malaysian airliner. No evidence whatsoever exists for the accusation, and massive evidence has been presented that the airliner was shot down by the neonazis that seized power as a result of the Washington-organized coup in Ukraine.

Blame was fixed on Russia not by any evidence but by continuous evidence-free accusations that began the moment the airliner was shot down. Anyone who asked for evidence was treated as a “Putin apologist.” This took evidence out of the picture.

Wherever we look in these times, we see evidence-free accusations established as absolute facts: Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction,” “Iranian nukes,” “Russian invasion of Ukraine,” the Trump/Putin conspiracy that stole the 2016 US presidential election, Syrian use of poison gas. Not a scrap of evidence exists for any of these accusations, but the truth of the accusations is established in many minds worldwide.

Science gave the world the principle of evidence-based fact, which did away with the burning of witches and political decisions based in superstitution. Truth became a force.

But truth can get in the way of agendas, and as elites recovered their power from the social, political, and economic reforms of a previous era, truth was divided into categories and cut so fine that it disappeared. For the elite truth became identical to their economic interests, and Identity Politics stripped truth of its universal meaning and reduced truth to self-pleading race and gender truth.

The result is that today truth is established not by evidence but by repetition of accusations and falsehoods.

This made it easy to destroy people and countries by lies alone. Who remembers Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the International Monetary Fund and at the time the likely future president of France? Strauss-Kahn was out of step with Washington which wanted its puppet Sarkozy reelected. Strauss-Kahn came to New York and was accused by a hotel maid of sexual assault. He was arrested and jailed. The New York district attorney and media whores pronounced him guillty. Simultaneously, on cue, a French woman made the same claim. Case closed. No evidence. Just claims. Then it emerged that the hotel maid had just had very large sums of money far above her income level deposited to her bank account. Even more damning, it was revealed that Sarkozy knew of Strauss-Kahn’s arrest before the police announced it. The case fell apart, and the New York district attorney publicly apologized. But Strauss-Kahn had been forced to resign as Director of the IMF and was out of the French presidential election. So Washington won.

Today it is a common, routine tactic for both US political parties to produce a woman to bring accusations of sexual harassment, abuse, or assault against any heterosexual male appointee or nominee that either party regards to be out of step with its agenda. It happens so regularly that no sentinent person can possibly believe the woman. Sexual assault has been reduced to one of the dirty tricks of politics.

As hard as false accusations can be on individuals, they destroy entire countries. Just consider the destruction of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, currently Yemen, and Washington has not given up on the same fate for Syria and Iran. Based on nothing but Washington’s endlessly repeated false accusations, millions of peoples have been murdered, maimed, orphened, widowed, displaced, and sent as refugees overrunning Europe.

There is not a scrap of evidence anywhere that justifies Washington’s enormous crimes against humanity. Yet, these crimes that in a truth-conscious world would have resulted in several entire governments of the United States standing accused in the International Criminal Court, or the War Crimes Court, or whichever court, and perhaps in all of them, are ignored, because accusation alone against the destroyed countries and peoples sufficed to justify Washington’s war crimes against humanity.

What I have described is a truth-free world. There is no place for truth in the world that the West has created. The Western hostility to truth is overwhelming. As I write truth-tellers are being banned from Facebook, Twitter, and PayPal. Google makes their sites almost impossible to find. Throughout the Western World truth has been redefined as “Conspiracy Theory.”

Elites such as George Soros and innumerable tax-financed government agencies, such as the National Endowment for Democracy, spend taxpayers’ money discrediting those who tell the truth. Many in governments want truth-tellers locked up as enemies of the state, by which they mean “enemies of the self-interests of the ruling elites.”

You don’t need to believe me. Here are four books written by honorable persons, meticulously documented, full of evidence that make it clear that American elites have no respect whatsoever for truth. Truth is something that is in their way.

One of the books is Charlie Savage’s Takeover. Savage shows how Dick Cheney used the George W. Bush regime and 9/11 to destroy the separation of powers and the civil liberties in the US Constitution. When you read Savage’s book you will discover that the America that you think is here is not here. In its place is a dictatorship available to any president clever enough to use it. Savage’s book is one of the best pieces of investigative reporting that I have read.

The Roman system of government never recovered from Caesar crossing the Rubicon. I doubt that the US Constitution will ever recover from Dick Cheney.

Two of the books are by David Ray Griffin, one of the last and most determined of American protagonists for truth. In his book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World, Griffin makes, a decade after Savage, the same case against Dick Cheney. When two independently minded researchers reach the same conclusion, you can bet it is on the money. If the world survives Washington’s orchestrated conflict with Russia, Cheney will go down in history as the person who destroyed American constitutional government.

In this same book, Griffin also examines the official 9/11 story and exposes it as a total fabrication with no connection to any truth whatsoever. He takes up this case in his current, just released book with Elizabeth Woodworth, 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation.

Anyone who is still brainwashed by the official 9/11 story can immediately free themselves from their deception by reading this book. There is no longer any doubt that 9/11 was an inside orchestrated event for the purpose of unleashing two decades, with more to come, of American aggression in the Middle East.

Griffin does not leave a single official statement about 9/11 standing as not a single official claim is based on any factual evidence whatsoever.

For seventeen years the world has been fed a pack of total lies based on nothing but accusations and in the face of massive evidence produced not by some collection of political hacks sitting as a 9/11 Commission, but by thousands of experts. Yet for seventeen years false accusations prevailed over heavily documented facts presented by disinterested experts called “conspiracy theorists” by those intent on covering up their crimes.

The fourth book is Mary Mapes’ Truth and Duty. Mary Mapes is the CBS producer whose team carefully prepared for Dan Rather the 60 Minutes report on George W. Bush’s failure to perform his Texas Air National Guard duty. Her story was absolutely correct, but she and Rather were destroyed by accusation alone. The Republicans set in attack mode the right-wing bloggers, and soon the official media joined in for the purpose of elevating their ratings at CBS’s expense.

CBS was vulnerable, because it was no longer independent but a part of Viacom’s empire. Mapes was already in trouble, because she had broken the Abu Ghraib torture story just at the moment that Bush and Cheney declared: “America doesn’t torture.” As the Cheney/Bush regime put pressure on Viacom, a corporate executive told Mapes: “You don’t have any idea how many millions of dollars Viacom is spending on lobbying in Wasington, and nothing you’ve done in the past year has helped.”

There you have it. The Viacom executives had no interest whatsoever in the truth, only in what advanced their lobbying interests in Washington. Mapes, a truth-teller had to go, and she did. And so did Dan Rather.

Today in America no member of the print and TV media or NPR dares to get within a hundred miles of the truth. It would be a career-ending event.

Without a media dedicated to truth, there can be no control over government.

Ask yourselves where you can read articles like this. If you do not support the remaining portals of truth, you will find yourselves bound, like the Elven-kings, Dwarf-lords and Mortal Men in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, “in the darkness” by the elites’ ability to control the explanations that comprise your reality.

Identity Politics has destroyed the very conception of truth independent of race and gender. Science itself becomes discredited as does civilization:

Never in history have humans been so near to losing all comprehension of reality as in today’s world in which there is no respect for truth.

Paul Craig Roberts, a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, has been reporting shocking cases of prosecutorial abuse for two decades. A new edition of his book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions, co-authored with Lawrence Stratton, a documented account of how americans lost the protection of law, has been released by Random House.

15 thought on “Truth Is Evaporating Before Our Eyes”
    Albert Szent-Gyorgyi from Budapest, Hungary was awarded the 1937 Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovery of Vitamin C documented at the link above.
    Frederick R. Klenner, M.D. (1907-1984) was a top biology student from Pennsylvania. He earned his M.D. degree from Duke University in 1936 the year before Albert Szent-Gyorgyi was awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering this substance. He became fascinated with it and its possibilities for simple, safe and cheap cure and prevention of human and even animal diseases. Klenner cured every childhood viral disease up to and including polio before 1949 long before the polio vaccine was approved. There is no reason to believe it would not also cure the current ones other than the institutional prejudice against even scientifically testing them and you could not believe any “tests” they made because they lie and cheat.
    Here are links to two great articles about this and much more:

    As the above articles show, Vitamin C is much much more than just a vitamin. It is a miracle substance but the totally corrupt members of our FDA, NIH and NCI have obstructed these scientific results. All of them are guilty of scientific misconduct, fraud, medical quackery and crimes against humanity and belong in a jail cell for life. Even snake bites can be easily, simply and inexpensively dealt with by high dose vitamin c by injection. The only trivial dose of vitamin c approved by the corrupt authorities is 60 milligrams per day to prevent scurvy! The first article “The Origin of the 42 year Stonewall of Vitamin C” was first published in 1991. Today, 2018 is about 27 years later. So the stonewall is now 69 years and counting. Below is a Case History Dr. Klenner published in the article at the second link above published in 1971 on curing snake bite with high dose Vitamin C. Warning: No one should attempt to inject vitamin C themselves without professional supervision.

    Quote from above article:

    “Case History: Snake bite Child of 4 years was struck on the lower leg by a large highland moccasin at 7:00 P.M., while at play in the yard of her country home. Seen in the emergency room of the local hospital at 7:30 P.M., the child was vomiting, was crying because of severe pain in her leg, which she held with both hands above the “fang marks”. Fever was 99.0°F. Four grams of ascorbate was given intravenously at 7:35 P.M. with a 20 c.c. syringe. The following 25 minutes were taken to follow a skin test on anti-venom. At this time and before the anti-venom was administered the child had stopped vomiting, she had stopped crying and was sitting on the emergency room table, laughing and drinking a glass of orange juice. She commented: “Come on, Daddy, I’m all right now, let’s go home.” She was allowed to return home with the understanding that her father would give me a report, by phone, each hour during the night. This he did. His report, each time, was that the child was sleeping as usual and that except for moderate swelling to the “calf of the leg”, appeared normal. Seen in the office at 10:00 A.M. the following morning she still demonstrated the small amount of swelling of her leg and had 1/2 degree fever. She was given a second dose of 4 grams of ascorbate intravenously. Seen at 5 P.M. she had no fever but the swelling remained constant. There was no pain. The following day, 38 hours after being bitten, she was completely normal. Since this was our first case of snake bite treated with vitamin C, we elected to give an additional 4 grams of ascorbate on this visit. No other antibiotics were given and none was required. Since she had had a booster injection of tetanus toxoid in recent months, none was given at this time. Compare this to an earlier case of snake bite in a 16 year old girl, struck by a moccasin of about the same size, as gauged from the fang marks, on the hand while pulling tobacco plants, and who was hospitalized for three weeks. She was given 3 doses of anti-venom. The arm was compressed continuously with magnesium sulfate solution. Swelling was four times that of the opposite arm and striae developed over the entire surface. This patient received no vitamin C other than that found in a regular hospital diet. Morphine was required to control pain. (We no longer use anti-venom.)” Note: The approved anti venom treatment is also very very expensive and likely cost many thousands of dollars.

  2. Truth Is Evaporating Before Our Eyes

    No, that is not the truth because the Truth is a Person Who will be with us until the consummation of time.

    The Cultural Marxists and the Frankfort School pumped relativity of data and facts and evidence into overdrive.

    Dr. Roberts carefully avoids the proper identification of WHO it is that continually wars against truth and uses a variety of untruth words to unidentify truth, such as “the West.”

    “There is no place for truth in the world that the West has created.”

    The “place for truth” resides in an individual’s soul. That place exists with the grace of God and cooperation with that grace by the individual. “The West” does not have a monopoly on a “place for truth” , never did, never will.

    Here is a radio host of the mid 1930s who did the better job of identifying WHO it is that is warring against Truth. He was kicked off the air then and had ugly books written about him, such as …

  3. Can I get someone on my friends show to talk about all this?

    Can someone tell me what I can do to help all of this?

    I’m tired of reading about all this crazy stuff and not doing anything about it, or not being able to do anything about it.

    I want to help, like most Americans I would assume, so please lets all be connected and figure out the solutions.

    1. Mario Estevez, It is very difficult to know what to do. I have been studying the truth of what’s really happening for 40 years. The result is that I know a great deal– but am helpless to disseminate what I know. Nor do I know how we are to do more than just resist what the oligarchs are doing. I know that we must have a pro-active plan of our own, to transform the world, or at least our country, into freedom and local self-government. But I don’t know how to do that.

      I know that others can be more easily motivated to join us in the service of a positive ideal, a goal, than by mere resistance to evil.

  4. Regarding MH17 , the aircrash in Ukraine that is blamed on Russia:
    After heated allegations with contradicting “Facts” it is difficult to submit the scene of the crash to ordinary observation. We have been skillfully played to sign on to a particular interpretation. But the CORRECT interpretation was not offered.

    It is impossible for heavy objects which actually fall from the sky to sit lightly upon the soft farmland. In other plane crashes the heavy pieces gouge the earth in long gullies to mark their path of approach– unless every one falls perpendicular to the land surface. In either case the pieces half bury themselves. A heavy engine falling from the sky fractures CONCRETE. Each and every piece of MH17 sits lightly and makes not even a dent in the soft farmland.

    No, don’t say that such a hoax is impossible. Rather, begin as a rational person must, with the visual evidence. The actual crash was shown on TV & is still available on internet: We see an explosion ON THE GROUND, not a falling aircraft.

    Notice that the heavy parts are ALL located at the intersection of a paved road and a service road convenient for trucking them in.

    We are heavily propagandized to believe that Russia & the West are opponents, but there appears to be cooperation between the oligarchs regardless of country.

    My present conclusion is that both the Sinai and Ukrainian plane crashes are hoaxes arranged on the ground. The pattern of the error that we observers commit is to imm’y enter into the controversy of who did it– hence overlooking whether the event is real. This is further provoked by accusations (especially w obvious errors like magic passports, contrary evidence, obvious evidence that’s denied, etc). When one is incited to choose between 2 alternatives it’s difficult to withhold participation, and so one is co-opted.

    The visual evidence is clearer in the Russian aircrash in the Sinai. Heavy pieces, even a motor, sits lightly upon the sand.
    Soon, when I have more energy, I will set out the evidence that Russia & US are cooperating in Syria.

    Regards to you all. Try to understand that the media is like a play– it’s an entire theatre of propaganda.

    1. You are absolutely correct about this Penelope. The MH17 crash was arranged the ground. Satellite photos prior to the crash show temporary buildings at the crash site which are absent after the “crash”. These buildings could easily have been used to store the dismembered Boeing 777 until it was time to place it out in the field to simulate a tragic airliner crash. Radar chaff was also photographed at the scene, which would have simulated the falling plane on radar screens. The chaff could have been dumped by fighter planes seen accompanying MH17.

      Consider the fact that MH17 was an aging aircraft ready for retirement. Consider the fact that an almost identical but new Boeing 777 disappeared from radar never to be seen again just three months prior to the supposed crash of MH17. This airliner, MH340 belonged to the same company, so it was painted with nearly identical colors. What are the chances of this occurring? Boeing 777s represent less than 10% of Malaysia Airline’s fleet. Two identical planes tragically destroyed within three months of each other out of thousands and thousands flights? This is highly improbable.

      MH340 had its tail number repainted and was flying as MH17. It detoured over the crash site, where a load of radar chaff was dumped above the cut up remains of MH17 to simulate an airliner crash. Saw marks were found on parts of the untouched wreckage. Dead bodies were taken from some morgue in refrigerated trains to be dumped at the scene. Witnesses described bloodless corpses. Case closed.

      1. christo, I don’t know if there were any old, preserved bodies or not, but imm’y after Strelkov told the press that the bodies were not fresh, he was recalled to Moscow. The trucked in heavy parts in the Ukraine crash were found at the intersection of a road and a service road. The service road led to a chicken farm. It had industrial refrigeration, a railroad spur for transport, and a boxcar for storage. It also had a blue truck with a light crane attached, as shown in some of the videos.

        But regardless of the nature of the two aircrash hoaxes, the kicker is that it is impossible for heavy objects to fall from the sky w/o denting farmland or desert sand.

        1. When the MH17 story first appeared I remember seeing photos of large pieces of debris sitting in the delicate branches of a tree where it supposedly landed after falling from 30,000 feet. Quite impossible. I hope Paul Craig Roberts checks out this post and its comment section on MHB.

          Here are some aerial photos showing the “crash site”. In the fourth photo we can see a wheat field with plane debris in it where every single piece of debris shows a trail going directly to a just a few points on the nearby road. None of the trails go from one piece of debris to the next, what one would expect if the trails were made by first responders. Instead they all go back to the road directly, which is what one would expect if the pieces were placed in the field one at a time, with an effort made to minimize any disturbance in the unharvested wheat.

  5. Having facts and evidence is rapidly becoming irrelevant.
    Andrew Carrington Hitchcock, a Great Britain national who resides in London, interviews Handsome Truth 7, YouTube channel host.
    at 48:50 to 50:23
    “… bot now we are literally being told to lie and the problem that we have – what they’re trying to do –we’ve got this international definition of anti-semitism, Handsome Truth, which they have been touting around the place, and they’ve adopted in the UK but they haven’t yet come up with legislation for people who are basically found to be anti-semitic based on what they say or do under that definition.
    And they’ve got things in there like ‘if you claim that you have inordinate control of the media, or banking, or politics, then you’re anti-semitic.’ The purpose of this definition is very similar to the purpose of the Holocaust denial law they’ve got in much of Europe.

    “Even if you’ve got evidence that disproves their official version of events, it doesn’t matter because all that matters is that you’ve disagree or you have stated that you disagree with their official version of events. Then you have committed the offense, so by doing what they are doing, they’re actually preventing you from having these discussions like we are having today because they are making it illegal to do so even though we have evidence to prove that there is control of the media, there is control over the banking system, because you’re automatically guilty of the offense by even pointing out. And this is how evil this group of people are that they will not change their behavior and they will try to change laws to protect their exploitative behavior of the rest of us.”

  6. I just listened to about half of Trump’s speech to the UN. He rejected globalism and world gov’t and got laughs like he was a stand-up at the comedy store. I agreed with much of what Trump said and part of it was just what Paul is talking about. Truth really doesn’t matter when it comes to Israel, Iran and Syria. Israel is saintly with a shinning democracy in the Holy Land while Iran and Syria have brutal regimes according to Trump. Ever wonder why you never hear anything positive about Iran? It is simply not allowed to happen, with the lone exception of Rick Steve’s travel special on Iran. I urge everyone to watch and gain a new perspective on “Boogie Man” Iran. It’s an eye opener.

    1. Trump is a part of the establishment; you can’t get the financing to do his real estate deals if you’re an outsider. The only good thing about Trump is that the establishment (the globalists) felt that they had to have their controlled media PRETEND he was an outsider in order to elect him. And he continues, verbally, to pretend he’s anti-globalist. This means that a considerable segment of the population has realized that a globalist oligarchy is against our interests.

    2. Regardless of Trump’s good sounding words, the whole United Nations thing is simply the promotion of a one world death and slavery system for all. I continue to pray for Trump and for the survival of my country as a sovereign nation state. However, there are so many games, and possibly blackmail of our commander in chief, going on behind the scenes that what we see on the surface, such as these current Middle Eastern machinations is simply more deception and manipulation of the public, and this is usually done for the benefit of Israeli interests. I understand President Trump stood actually and symbolically in front of Nikki Haley and John Bolton at this UN event, both traitorous neocons in my opinion, so there is no way I can take any of this at face value.

      Islam religion, Jewish religion, Novus Ordo “Catholic Christian religion” as well as Islamic regimes, fascist NAZI regimes, communist regimes and fake constitutional republic regimes are all anti-Christ entities in my opinion.
