Paul Craig Roberts: U.S. Trying to Push Back a Dollar Blowup
He’s one of the best analysts I know and a very wise man, whose heart is in the right place.
Brilliant analysis of the present state of the US and global economy; US #geopolitical games with #Russia & #China; the real secret reason for the newly signed Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement with the #EU; where the #dollar is headed; #gold and #naturalresources; systemic corruption in the US and EU; the #fracking lie, and more… By the amazing Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Reagan Administration‘s Assistant Treasury Secretary in charge of economic policy, known as the Father of #Reaganomics (I believe he repented since ;)). He also is a former editor of The Wall Street Journal.
Plus, you thought this could never happen in the #USA? Below, read Dr. Paul Craig Roberts’ revealing and damning article that has made a lot of noise:
An unconstitutional government is an illegitimate government.
Paul Craig Roberts
July 17, 2013
“The American people have suffered a coup d’etat, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere “scrap of paper.””
“Washington’s response to Edward Snowden’s evidence that Washington, in total contravention of law both domestic and international, is spying on the entire world has demonstrated to every country that Washington places the pleasure of revenge above law and human rights.
On Washington’s orders, its European puppet states refused overflight permission to the Bolivian presidential airliner carrying President Morales and forced the airliner to land in Austria and be searched. Washington thought that Edward Snowden might be aboard the airliner. Capturing Snowden was more important to Washington than respect for international law and diplomatic immunity.
On July 12 Snowden met in the Moscow airport with human rights organizations from around the world. He stated that the illegal exercise of power by Washington prevents him from traveling to any of the three Latin American countries who have offered him asylum. Therefore, Snowden said that he accepted Russian President Putin’s conditions and requested asylum in Russia.
Insouciant americans and the young unaware of the past don’t know what this means. During my professional life it was Soviet Russia that persecuted truth tellers, while America gave them asylum and tried to protect them. Today it is Washington that persecutes those who speak the truth, and it is Russia that protects them.”
