Truth Is Washington’s Enemy — Paul Craig Roberts

by Dr.  Paul Craig Roberts

US Representative Ed Royce (R, CA) is busy 
at work destroying the possibility of truth 
being spoken in the US.

On April 15 at a hearing before the House Committee 
on Foreign Affairs of which Royce is chairman, Royce 
made use of two minor presstitutes to help him redefine 
all who take exception to Washington’s lies as “threats” 
who belong to a deranged pro-Russian propaganda cult. http://www.prisonplanet.com/

Washington’s problem is that whereas Washington controls 
the print and TV media in the US and its vassal states in 
Europe, Canada, Australia, Ukraine, and Japan, Washington 
does not control Internet sites, such as this one, or media, 
such as RT, of non-vassal states.

Consequently, Washington’s lies are subject to challenge, 
and as people lose confidence in Western print and TV 
media because of the propaganda content, Washington’s 
agendas, which depend on lies, are experiencing rougher 
Truth is bubbling up through Washington’s propaganda. 
Confronted with the possibility of a loss of control over 
every explanation, Hillary Clinton, Ed Royce, and the rest 
are suddenly complaining that Washington is “losing the 
information war.” Huge sums of taxpayers’ hard earned 
money will now be used to combat the truth with lies.
What to do? How to suppress truth with lies in order to 
remain in control? The answer says Andrew Lack, Royce, 
et alia, is to redefine a truth-teller as a terrorist. Thus, 
the comparison of RT and “dissident” Internet bloggers 
to the Islamist State and the designated terror group, 
Boko Haram.

Royce expanded the definition of terrorist to include 
dissident bloggers, such as Chris Hedges, John Pilger, 
Glenn Greenwald and the rest of us, who object to the 
false reality that Washington creates in order to serve 
undeclared agendas.

For example, if Washington wants to pour profits into 
the military/security complex in exchange for political 
campaign contributions, the politicians cannot say that. 
Instead, they claim to protect America from a dangerous 
enemy or from weapons of mass destruction by starting a 
war. If politicians want to advance American financial or 
energy imperialism, they have to do so in the name of 
“bringing freedom and democracy.” If the politicians 
want to prevent the rise of other countries, such as 
Russia, President Obama has to depict Russia as a 
threat comparable to the Ebola virus and the Islamist 

Noam Chomsky summed it up when he said that 
Washington regards any information that does 
not repeat Washington’s propaganda to be intolerable.
Washington’s assault on truth as a threat helps to make 
sense of the gigantic National Security Agency spy system 
exposed by William Binney and Edward Snowden. 
One of the purposes of the spy network is to identify 
all “dissidents” who challenge Big Brother’s “Truth.”

There is, or will be, a dossier on every “dissident” 
with all of the dissident’s emails, Internet searches, 
websites visited, phone calls, purchases, travels.
The vast amount of information on each dissident 
can be combed for whatever can be taken out of 
context to make a case against him, if a case is 
even needed. 

Washington has already successfully asserted 
its power over the Constitution to indefinitely 
detain without charges and to torture and to 
murder US citizens.

It was a couple of years ago that Janet Napolitano, 
head of Homeland Security, said that the department’s 
focus had shifted from terrorists to domestic extremists. 
Lumped into the category of domestic extremists are 
environmental activists, animal rights activists, anti-war 
activists, which includes disillusioned war veterans, and 
people who believe in states’ rights, limited government 
and accountable government. Consequently, many dissidents, 
America’s best citizens, will qualify as domestic extremists 
on several accounts. Chris Hedges, for example, is an 
advocate for animals (see http://www.opednews.com/articles/
Dairy-150420-878.html) as well as concerned about the 
environment and Washington’s never-ending wars.

The spying and the coming crackdown on “dissidents” 
might also explain the $385 million federal contract
awarded to a subsidiary of Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton,
to build detention camps in the US. Few seem to be 
concerned with who the camps are to detain. There is 
no media or congressional investigation. It seems unlikely
that the camps are for hurricane or forest fire evacuees. 
Concentration camps are usually for people regarded as 
unreliable. And as Lack, Royce, et alia have made clear, 
unreliable people are those who do not support Washington’s 

A perceived need by Washington, and the private power 
structure that Washington serves, to protect themselves 
from truth could also be the reason for the very strange 
military exercises in various of the states to infiltrate, 
occupy, and round-up “threats” among the civilian 

Even the presstitute CNN reported that the National 
Guard troops sent to Ferguson, Missouri, were programmed 
to view the civilian protesters as “enemy forces” and 
“adversaries,” and we know that the state and local 
militarized police are trained to view US citizens as 

As far as I can discern, not many Americans, whether 
Democrat or Republican, liberal, conservative, or super-
patriot, educated or not, understand that Washington 
with the cooperation of its presstitute media has defined 
truth as a threat. 

In Washington’s opinion, truth is a greater 
threat than Ebola, Russia, China, terrorism, 
and the Islamic State combined.

A government that cannot survive truth and must resort 
to stamping out truth is not a government that any country 
wants. But such an undesirable government is the government 
that Clinton-Bush-Cheney-Obama-Hillary-Lack-Royce have 
given us. Does it satisfy you?

Are you content that in your name 
and with taxes on your hard-earned 
and increasingly scarce earnings, 
Washington in the 21st century has 
murdered, maimed, and displaced 
millions of peoples in eight countries, 
has set America on the path to war 
with Russia and China, and has 
declared truth to be an enemy 
of the state?
