One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

Paul Craig Roberts is just one year younger than me and we both took 4-year degrees from technical universities, mine from Carnegie Tech, his from Georgia Tech. We both took 6 years to get our PhDs, mine in Physics from Brown University, his in Economics from the University of Virginia ...after spending his last year in Oxford. After being a post doc I became a midlevel government employee at the Naval Research Laboratory and Washington, DC, whereas he began as a member of Congressional Staff (also DC) and rose to Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy under Ronald Reagan. At the time I scoffed at Reagan as being a movie actor rather than what it takes to be President of the USA. However, PCR has made the point that Reagan may be the only American President ever to stop a war, rather than start one. And PCR, being an academic had many university appointments and took part in many high-level think tanks, where he met face-to-face all of the neocons that are today pushing for an all-out war with Russia and China …which if it reaches an exchange of nuclear weapons would likely kill us all. For this reason, dear reader, please read my re-post below of PCR’s latest blog and mention it to your friends, because they will never hear of it from the despicable “mainstream media” (who PCR terms “presstitutes”).

How The American Neoconservatives Destroyed Mankind’s Hopes For Peace
Paul Craig Roberts
When Ronald Reagan turned his back on the neoconservatives, fired
them, and had some of them prosecuted, his administration was free of
their evil influence, and President Reagan negotiated the end of the
Cold War with Soviet President Gorbachev. The military/security complex,
the CIA, and the neocons were very much against ending the Cold War as
their budgets, power, and ideology were threatened by the prospect of
peace between the two nuclear superpowers.
I know about this, because I was part of it. I helped Reagan create
the economic base for bringing the threat of a new arms race to a
failing Soviet economy in order to pressure the Soviets into agreement
to end the Cold War, and I was appointed to a secret presidential
committee with subpeona power over the CIA. The secret committee was
authorized by President Reagan to evaluate the CIA’s claim that the
Soviets would prevail in an arms race. The secret committee concluded
that this was the CIA’s way of perpetuting the Cold War and the CIA’s
The George H. W. Bush administration and its Secretary of State James
Baker kept Reagan’s promises to Gorbachev and achieved the
reunification of Germany with promises that NATO would not move one inch
to the East.
The corrupt Clintons, for whom the accumulation of riches seems to be
their main purpose in life, violated the assurances given by the United
States that had ended the Cold War. The two puppet presidents—George
W. Bush and Obama—who followed the Clintons lost control of the US
government to the neocons, who promptly restarted the Cold War,
believing in their hubris and arrogance that History has chosen the US
to exercise hegemony over the world.
Thus was mankind’s chance for peace lost along with America’s
leadership of the world. Under neocon influence, the United States
government threw away its soft power and its ability to lead the world
into a harmonious existance over which American influence would have
Instead the neocons threatened the world with coercion and violence,
attacking eight countries and fomenting “color revolutions” in former
The consequence of this crazed insanity was to create an economic and
military strategic alliance between Russia and China. Without the
neocons’ arrogant policy, this alliance would not exist. It was a
decade ago that I began writing about the strategic alliance between
Russia and China that is a response to the neocon claim of US world
The strategic alliance between Russia and China is militarily and
economically too strong for Washington. China controls the production of
the products of many of America’s leading corporations, such as Apple.
China has the largest foreign exchange reserves in the world. China
can, if the government wishes, cause a massive increase in the American
money supply by dumping its trillions of dollars of US financial assets.
To prevent a collapse of US Treasury prices, the Federal Reserve
would have to create trillions of new dollars in order to purchase the
dumped financial instruments. The rest of the world would see another
expansion of dollars without an expansion of real US output and become
skepical of the US dollar. If the world abandoned the US dollar, the US
government could no longer pay its bills.
Europe is dependent on Russian energy. Russia can cut off this
energy. There are no alternatives in the short-run, and perhaps not in
the long run. If Russia shuts off the energy, Germany industry shuts
down. Europeans freeze to death in the winter. Despite these facts, the
neocons have forced Europe to impose economic sanctions on Russia. What
if Russia responded in kind?
NATO, as US military authorities admit, has no chance of invading
Russia or withstanding a Russian attack on NATO. NATO is a cover for
Washington’s war crimes. It can provide no other service.
Thanks to the greed of US corporations that boosted their profits by
offshoring their production to China, China is moderinized many decades
before the neocons thought possible. China’s military forces are
moderized with Russian weapons technology. New Chinese missiles make the
vaunted US Navy and its aircraft carriers obsolete.
The neocons boast how they have surrounded Russia, but it is America
that is surrounded by Russia and China, thanks to the incompetent
leadership that the US has had beginning with the Clintons. Judging from
Killary’s support in the current presidential primaries, many voters
seem determined to perpetuate incompetent leadership.
Despite being surrounded, the neocons are pressing for war with
Russia which means also with China. If Killary Clinton makes it to the
White House, we could get the neocon’s war.
The neocons have flocked to the support of Killary. She is their
person. Watch the feminized women of America put Killary in office.
Keep in mind that Congress gave its power to start wars to the
The United States does not have a highly intelligent or well informed
population. The US owes its 20th century dominance to World War I and
World War II which destroyed more capable countries and peoples.
America became a superpower because of the self-destruction of other
Despite neocon denials that their hubris has created a powerful
alliance against the US, a professor at the US Navy War College stresses
the reality of the Russian-Chinese strategic alliance. http://sputniknews.com/world/20160414/1037981155/russia-china-cooperation.html
Last August a joint Russian-Chinese sea and air exercise took place in
the Sea of Japan, making it clear to America’s Japanese vassal that it
was defenseless if Russia and China so decided.
The Russian defense minister Sergey Shoigu said that the joint
exercise illustrates the partnership between the two powers and its
stabilizing effect on that part of the world.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that Russian-Chinese relations are able to resist any international crises.
The only achievements of the American neoconservatives are to destroy
in war crimes millions of peoples in eight countries and to send the
remnant populations fleeing into Europe as refugees, thus undermining
the American puppet governments there, and to set back the chances of
world peace and American leadership by creating a powerful strategic
alliance between Russia and China.
This boils down to extraordinary failure. It is time to hold the
neoconservatives accountable, not elect another puppet for them to
