Paul Craig Roberts
RT is the best English language news source available to Americans. On January 29, RT published a photo of 5 presidential appointees lying through their teeth to Congress.
All five of these Gestapo wannabes are in violation of their oath of office to protect the Constitution of the United States. They have relentlessly violated the Constitution, which makes these five, who are in charge of US intelligence and black operations, traitors to the United States.
Yet, they have not been arrested and put on trial. Congress is content to sit there and listen to their ongoing lies time after time after time, despite the fact that these 5 have committed more and worse crimes against our country than the “terrorists” that serve as an excuse for the crimes committed by the intelligence agencies.
Phi Beta Iota: Two major points to be made here.
First, we try not to censor our contributing editors and channels. “Gestapo” is an outrageous word. Our intelligence “leaders” are civil servants working within a very corrupt system in which the Congress is demanding that they lie. What they are not willing to do is insist on telling the truth and accepting the prospect of being fired for doing so (this is the same dilemma faced by Colin Powell, who also chose to foresake his Oath to defend and protect the Constitution, against “going along” with treason). The US Government consists of good people trapped in a bad system, and “leaders” that are more like senior clerks than actual drivers of ethics and innovation.
Second, there are no criminal justice processes or sanctions sufficient to fix this. Our problems are political in nature. While our intelligence leaders have certainly disappointed us all in their unwillingess to tell the truth as an absolute good, at root this is about a US government — legislative, judiciary, and executive — that considers itself above the law and that no longer represents the public. A civil war has begun, pitting the 99% against the 1% and their captive Nazified government that will tell any lie and commit any crime favorable to its perpetuation in power.
