A Stalinist Purge in America? – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

This year could turn out to be a defining year for the United States. It is clear that the US military/security complex and the Democratic Party aided by their media vassals intend to purge Donald Trump from the presidency.  One of the open conspirators declared the other day that we have to get rid of Trump now before he wins re-election in a landslide.

It is now a known fact that Russiagate is a conspiracy of the military/security complex, Obama regime, Democratic National Committee, and presstitute media to destroy President Trump.  However, the presstitutes never present this fact to the American public.  Nevertheless, a majority of Americans do not believe the Democrats and the presstitutes that Trump conspired with Putin to steal the election. 

One question before us is:  Will Mueller and the Democrats succeed in purging Donald Trump, as Joseph Stalin succeed in purging Lenin’s Bolsheviks, including Nikolai Bukharin, whom Lenin called “the golden boy of the revolution,” or will the Democratic Party and the presstitutes discredit themselves such that the country moves far to the right?

Stalin didn’t need facts and could frame-up people at will as he had absolute power.  In the US the presstitute media, like Stalin, does not concern itself with facts, but the presstitutes do not have absolute power.  Indeed, few people trust the presstitutes, and even fewer trust Mueller.  

Many are puzzled that President Trump has not moved against his enemies as they have no evidence for their charges.  Indeed, Mueller’s indictments have nothing whatsoever to do with the Russiagate accusations.  Why are not Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein, and all the rest indicted for their clear and obvious crimes?

America’s future turns on the answer to this question.  Is it because the Trump regime is letting the presstitutes and the Democrats destroy their credibility, or is it because Trump is weak, confused, and doesn’t know how to use the powers of his office to slay those who intend to slay him?

If it is the former, then America will move far to the right.  If it is the latter, America will have had its own Stalinist purge, and the purge is likely to follow the Stalin model and to extend down to those who voted for Trump. 

The failure of the integrity of the liberal/progressive/left has left the US facing two unpalatable outcomes. One is a right-wing government empowered by the left’s self-defeat.  The other is the rise of the Identity Politics state in which oppression will be based on gender, race, and beliefs.

This is not the only issue that could be resolved in 2018.  There are others, and the other two major ones are the economic situation and the military situation.  

For a decade the central banks of the West and Japan have printed money far in excess of the increase in real goods and services.  This money printing has not caused massive inflation of consumer prices.  Instead it has caused inflation in financial instruments and real estate.  

The high Dow Jones average is the product of this money printing.  Can the central banks stop printing money and allow interest rates to rise, thus collapsing equity prices and pension funds? What would be the consequences?

Militarily, since World War II Washington has relied on its armed predominance to dictate to the world.  But now the President of Russia has announced possession of what are from the US perspective super weapons that do not, as some claim, give Russia parity with the US, but give Russia immense military superiority over the US, indeed over the entire Western alliance.  

Russia’s capability, which the US has no chance of matching any time soon, means that Washington’s policy of intimidation has no chance of intimidating Russia.  If Washington’s policy toward Russia continues in a hostile demeanor, Russia is likely to kick Washington’s teeth out.  

The cat has been belled.  America is no longer “the sole superpower.”  It is a second-rate power whose hubris is likely to do it in. Will it happen in 2018?

    The Liberal Left’s purge of people’s/YouTube channels who support Trump and Truth is taken directly from the Marxist-Leninist’s playbook. Its trying to make America the new Nazi State.

    Donald Trump is a good man. I said a good man (not a perfect man) in the same vein as Ronald Reagan. I would trust Reagan if he told me something in the same vein as Mr. Trump.

    The Negro (the shamefool sodomite one) on the other hand, could promise me a million dollars and I wouldn’t trust anything the Negro said.

    That said, being good in Washington could be a handicap. I trust Trump knows what he is doing having dealt with the Demoncraps and “Washington” types in his business association with them throughout the years. I’m sure he learned a thing or two how low these worthless chimps can go to look under a women’s skirt.

    I’m inclined to agree that Trump could be our last chance. Lose him and you lose the country. Civil war is likely to come about (a Demoncrap’s dream) and don’t you forget it.

    Stay armed, and don’t forget to prey when the SHTF, against those that wish you to be disarmed. :twisted:

    Look all of you have no idea what problems we have in this country. I am one of many targeted people in this country. I have been poisoned, emf, microwaved, implanted during surgery, and dental surgery.

    Tagged by some very well dressed people driving great cars. My daughter’s life was destroyed. Was it because of my father in law who was a four star admiral?

    These monsters are out to destroy me, and others much like you and I. Wake up America, Wake Up!
