Is President Trump A Traitor Because He Wants Peace With Russia?

The title of this analysis by Paul Craig Roberts (see excerpts below) sums up the key question defining the historical juncture in America today, as two wings of the equally corrupt US ruling establishment battle it out, one slightly less depraved than the other. For while a sizable section of working class America embraces Trump wrongly thinking him its champion, and legions of terminally and utterly indoctrinated stupid liberals cheerfully jump into bed with the CIA and the military to consummate a wedding in blood, the country drifts ever closer to the abyss. Meanwhile, in both the short-term and the middle-term, there’s little question that those pushing Trump toward further hostilities and even war with Russia (or else!) are technically insane. Charitably put Trump does not have a surfeit of admirable qualities, but this much is true: he’s the only one around on the top political tier of America who, for whatever reasons, remains stubbornly committed to the idea of normalising relations with Russia. Considering what a modern nuclear war would do to this tormented planet, and the moral decomposition of the US political class, that is obviously a good and sensible notion worthy of support, not hysterical denunciation as the CIA assets in the media and innumerable establishment minions are currently doing. Beggars can’t be choosers, quite literally in this case. But none of this reasoning seems to penetrate the skulls of the Deep State handlers and their countless shills. Class imperatives I suppose. Have any of these idiots, presstitutes, and sociopaths ever thought through the implications of their single-minded pursuit of confrontation with Russia or any other nuclear power perceived as an obstacle to America’s dream of uncontested world hegemony? The emperor was never more pathetically naked than at this critical hour, and yet, because the majority of Americans—easily the most heavily and successfully propagandised people in history— remain confused and massively ignorant of the most essential truths, the emerging potential for the creation of a new and much healthier world order may simply slip through our fingers. —PG

Is President Trump A Traitor Because He Wants Peace With Russia?
The Democrats say he is
By Paul Craig Roberts

The US Democratic Party is determined to take the world to thermo-nuclear war rather than to admit that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election fair and square. The Democratic Party was totally corrupted by the Clinton Regime, and now it is totally insane. Leaders of the Democratic Party, such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, my former co-author in the New York Times, have responded in a non-Democratic way to the first step President Trump has taken to reduce the extremely dangerous tensions with Russia that the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes created between the two superpowers.

Yes, Russia is a superpower. Russian weapons are so superior to the junk produced by the waste-filled US military/security complex that lives high off the hog on the insouciant American taxpayer that it is questionable if the US is even a second class military power. If the insane neoconservatives, such as Max Boot, William Kristol, and the rest of the neocon scum get their way, the US, the UK, and Europe will be a radioactive ruin for thousands of years.

Pelosi: Making peace is a crime in her book.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (CA), Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives, declared that out of fear of some undefined retribution from Putin, a dossier on Trump perhaps, the President of the United States sold out the American people to Russia because he wants to make peace: “It begs the question, what does Vladimir Putin, what do the Russians have on Donald Trump—personally, politically and financially that he should behave in such a manner?” The “such a manner” Pelosi is speaking about is making peace instead of war.

To be clear, the Democratic Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives has accused Donald Trump of high treason against the United States. There is no outcry against this blatantly false accusation, totally devoid of evidence. The presstitute media instead of protesting this attempt at a coup against the President of the United States, trumpet the accusation as self-evident truth.Trump is a traitor because he wants peace with Russia.

Here is Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (NY) repeating Pelosi’s false accusation: “Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this dangerous behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump.” If you don’t believe that this is orchestrated between Pelosi and Schumer, you are stupid beyond belief.

Both Trump and Putin …can be assassinated, and that is what the statements from Pelosi, Schumer, McCain, Lindsey Graham, et. al., repeated endlessly in the propaganda ministry that is the Western press, encourages. Trump can be assassinated or overthrown in a political coup for selling out America to Russia, as members of both political parties claim and as the media trumpets endlessly.
 Here is disgraced Obama CIA director John Brennan, a leader of the fake Russiagate campaign against President Trump in order to prevent Trump from making peace with Russia and, thus, by making the world safer, threatening the massive, unjustified budget of the military/security complex: “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to and exceeds the threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors. It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

Here are many more:

And here is more from the CIA bought-and-paid-for BBC:


The Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, and the North Koreans, as well as the rest of the world, desperately need to notice the extremely hostile reaction to peace on the part of the US Democratic Party, many members of the Republican Party, including the despicable US Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, and the Western Presstitute Media, a collection of people on the CIA payroll according to the German newspaper editor, Udo Ulfkotte, and the CIA itself.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the corrupt filth that rules over us are all in the pay of the military/security complex. Just go and investigate the donations to their re-election campaigns. The 1,000 billion dollar budget of the military/security complex, amplified by the CIA’s front corporations and narcotics business, provides enormous sums with which to purchase the senators and representatives that the insouciant American voters think that they elect. 

Today, right now, at this moment, we are faced with a massive effort of the military/security complex, the neoconservatives, the Democratic Party, and the presstitute media to discredit the elected President of the United States and to overthrow him in order that the utterly corrupt elite that rule American can continue to hold on to power and to protect the massive budget of the military/security complex that, along with the Israel Lobby, funds the elections of those who rule us.
Do you know how large 1,000 billion is? You would have to live for thousands of years and do nothing for 24/7 except count to reach that figure. It is a sum that nurtures the recipients, and the recipients regard it as worth protecting.

Therefore, the American public gets not representation, but lies that justify war and conflict. The military/security complex, about which President Eisenhower warned the American people to no effect, is in desperate need of an enemy. In obedience to the military/security complex, the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have made Russia that enemy. If Trump and Putin do not understand this, they will easily be made irrelevant.

They both can be assassinated, and that is what the statements from Pelosi, Schumer, McCain, Lindsey Graham, et. al., repeated endlessly in the propaganda ministry that is the Western press, encourages. Trump can be assassinated or overthrown in a political coup for selling out America to Russia, as members of both political parties claim and as the media trumpets endlessly. Putin can be easily assassinated by the CIA operatives that the Russian government stupidly permits to operate throughout Russia in NGOs and Western/US owned media and among the Atlanticist Integrationists, Washington’s Firth Column inside Russia serving Washington’s purposes. These Russian traitors serve in Putin’s own government!

Americans are so unaware that they have no idea of the risk that President Trump is taking by challenging the US military security complex.


My emergence from The Matrix began with Strom Thurmond’s pat on my shoulder. It grew with my time at the Wall Street Journal when I learned that some truthful things simply could not be said. In the Treasury I experienced how those outside interests opposed to a president’s policy marshall their forces and the media that they own to block it. Later as a member of a secret presidential committee, I saw how the CIA attempted to prevent President Reagan from ending the Cold War.

Today, right now, at this moment, we are faced with a massive effort of the military/security complex, the neoconservatives, the Democratic Party, and the presstitute media to discredit the elected President of the United States and to overthrow him in order that the utterly corrupt elite that rule American can continue to hold on to power and to protect the massive budget of the military/security complex that, along with the Israel Lobby, funds the elections of those who rule us. Trump, like Reagan, was an exception, and it is the exceptions that accumulate the ire of the corrupt leftwing, bought off with money, and the ire of the media, concentrated into small tight ownership groups indebted to those who permitted the illegal concentration of a once independent and diverse American media that once served, on occasion, as a watchdog over government. The rightwing, wrapped in the flag, dismisses all truth as “anti-American.”

If Putin, Lavrov, the Russian government, the traitorous Russian Fifth Column—the Atlanticist Integrationists—the Chinese, the Iranians, the North Koreans think that any peace or consideration can come out of America, they are insane. Their delusions are setting themselves up for destruction. There is no institution in America, government or private, that can be trusted. Any government or person who trusts America or any Western country is stupid beyond belief.

The entire Russiagate hoax is an orchestration by the military/security complex, led by John Brennan, Comey, and Rosenstein. The purpose is to discredit President trump for two reasons. One is to prevent any normalization of relations with Russia. The other is to remove Trump’s agenda as an alternative to the agenda of the Democratic Party.

President Trump is almost powerless. Putin, the Chinese, the Iranians, and the North Koreans should recognize this before it is too late for them. President Trump cannot fire and arrest for high treason Mueller and Rosenstein. And Trump cannot indict Hillary for her numerous unquestionable crimes in plain view of everyone, or Comey or Brennan, who declares Trump “to be wholly in the pocket of Putin,” for trying to overthrow the elected president of the United States. Trump cannot have the Secret Service question the likes of Pelosi and Schumer and McCain and Lindsey Graham for false accusations that encourage assassination of the President of the United States.

Trump cannot even trust the Secret Service, which accumulated evidence suggests was complicit in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy.

If Putin and Lavrov, so anxious to be friends of Washington, let their guards down, they are history.

As I said above, Russiagate is an orchestratration to prevent peace between the US and Russia. Leading military/security complex experts, including the person who provided the CIA’s daily briefing of the President of the United States for many years, and the person who devised the spy program for the National Security Agency, have proven conclusively that Russiagate is a hoax designed for the purpose of preventing President Trump from normalizing relations between the US and Russia, which has the power to destroy the entirety of the Western World at will.

Here is the report from the retired security professionals who, unlike those still in office, cannot be fired and deprived of a careet for telling the truth:

Gen. Shoigu

Here is what the clued-in Russian Defense Minister Shoigu has to say about the aggressive actions of the West against the Russian homeland: 
If Putin doesn’t listen to him, Russia is in the trash can of history.

Keep in mind that no media informs you better than my website. If my website goes down, you will be left in darkness. No valid information comes from the US government or the Western presstitutes. If you sit in front of the TV screen watching the Western media, you are brainwashed beyond all hope. Not even I can rescue you. Nor God himself.

Americans, and indeed the Russians themselves, are incapable of realizing it, but there is a chance that Trump will be overthrown and a Western assault will be launched against the handful of countries that insist on sovereignty.

I doubt that few of the Americans who elected Trump will be taken in by the anti-Trump propaganda, but they are not organized and have no armed power. The police, militarized by George W. Bush and Obama, will be set against them. The rebellions will be local and suppressed by every violation of the US Constitution by the private powers that rule Washington, as always has been the case with rebellions in America.

In the West, which the Russians are so anxious to join, all freedoms are dead—freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of inquiry, freedom of privacy, freedom from arbitrary search, freedom from arbitrary arrest, along with the Constitutional protections of due process and habeas corpus. Today there are no countries less free than the United States of America.

Why do the Russian Atlanticist Integrationists want to join an unfree Western world? Are they that brainwashed by Western Propaganda?

If Putin listens to these deluded fools, Putin will destroy Russia.

There is something wrong with Russian perception of Washington. Apparently the Russian elite, with the exception of Shoigu and a few others are incapable of comprehending the neoconservative drive for US world hegemony and the neoconservative determination to destroy Russia as a constraint on US unilateralism. The Russian government somehow, despite all evidence to the contrary, believes that Washington’s hegemony is negotiable.

The Great Helsinki Summit Toxic fallout

A sampler of reactions to the summit. Except for those holding an obviously sane point of view, all the people you see below, journos, pundits, “security experts”, former spooks, comedians, and so on are all guilty of complicity in inciting unnecessary war, a high crime that the Nuremberg tribunal regarded as a capital offense.

Wherein from pundits and politicos to not-so-funny comics, the russophobic establishment unleashes its fury in a storm of lies (the usual ones), served this time around with a fitting dressing of anger and frustration at an event that they sense may mean trouble for their project of endless wars and further immiseration of people everywhere. Not that Trump is not also for immiseration or devastating the ecology and so on, but he is at least not for nuclear war. If that means nothing to you, then stop reading. We’re dealing with a rotten, squalid, options-poor situation, because the American people failed to do their homework to stop the system’s degeneration into the toxic cesspit it is now, obvious to all except the most addled-brained amongst us.

On CNN, a well known fake news never trumper outlet: Wolf Blitzer grills Rand Paul. Note that Blitzer is not just interviewing Paul but browbeating him into accepting the national catechism of US foreign policy exceptionalism and the immaculate conception, virtue and honor of the CIA and other spook services. 

CNN has been sowing enmity between the superpowers for a long time. This sordid interview took place in December of 2017, see how fresh it sounds.

Colbert says Trump’s meeting with Putin should count as ‘treason’

The below is obviously despicable, but par for the course for cynical careerist disinformer Stephen Colbert, prominent ner trumper and Democrat party celebrity, who parades around as some sort of funnyman. Look at the people he hails as heroes, CIA’s James Clapper, John McCain, and so on, to great applause by his conditioned audience. While conveniently forgetting what this summit was all about. The moral bankruptcy of liberals was never so transparent as this. 

The Scourge of US Exceptionalism at work

Connoisseurs of disinformation will have  a ball with this one. Here’s one of the most egregious pieces of news distortion on the summit, served up by CNN’s Chris Cuomo, using as his sounding board Leon Panetta, an old establishment warhorse who naturally sees the world through the opposite side of the reality funnel.  Literally everything he says, at Cuomo’s frenzied urging, is a lie and a clear demonstration of the power of US exceptionalism, the emotional and intellectual cancer at the core of the American nation.




Below, this is what passes for journalism in America. Journos like Fox’s Chris Wallace—at best mental and cultural mediocrities— secure an interview with a world historical figure like Putin and go on to boast about it for the rest of their lives, when all they did was put questions carefully scripted by their handlers, in this case with the highly likely assist of the most sordid channels of the US spook establishment.  Notice that this media worm has the audacity to present Putin (surely a high point of courage in his book) with a copy of the Mueller bullshit indictment.  What is truly amazing is that Putin manages to remain civil despite such thinly veiled provocations. Too bad the true drama here is lost on 95% of the American audience, as, thanks to the thick crust of exceptionalism covering their brains, they have no clues as to the context of anything happening before their eyes.

  1. It depends on whether you’re a death merchant or not. If you are, of course, he’s a traitor. If you’re a citizen who’s tired of fake wars and illegal invasions and occupation of sovereign nations against international law and the US Constitution, then perhaps Trump has actually done something good and wise. But these thing do not come without strings attached. If it’s peace he’s after, there must be a price. Conversely, war with Russia is utter lunacy.
