Will The Matrix Prevail?
By Paul Craig Roberts
UPDATE Nov. 19: Note that the
authorities almost always claim that they had no warning
or indication of an attack, but they can almost
instantly identify the “mastermind.”
The Paris attack is playing out as I expected. The
French government is attacking French civil liberty with legislation
similar to the US PATRIOT Act.
Readers in France have informed me that 84% of the French people,
according to a poll, are content to be spied upon as long as it
keeps them safe. This means that only 16% of the French nation is
not brain dead.
Another reader informs me that a TV news station
read a letter left behind by one of the alleged ISIL bombers, a
letter written in perfect English. Really! I mean, Really! Those
with their secret agendas know how stupid the Western peoples are,
collectively a hopeless basket case.
French and American politicians are demanding that
NATO Article 5 be used to put NATO boots on the ground in Syria.
This is important not in order to fight ISIL, which the Russians are
successfully doing, but to overthrow Assad under the pretext of
fighting ISIL, a crazy policy that could bring conflict with Russia.
Alternatively, to avoid conflict with Russia,
Washington can take advantage of the Russian government’s hope that
the Paris attack will show the West that Putin was correct that the
West should join Russia in opposing ISIL. Once a NATO-Russian
coalition, as advocated by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, is
formed, Putin becomes the West’s captive in the overthrow of Assad.
To insure that no one is informed of the true
facts by the English language Russian media, such as RT and Sputnik,
the US Senate arranged hearings on foreign propaganda. Kenneth
Weinstein, a member of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, that
is, the censors, told the senators that RT, Sputnik, and a variety
of other truthful news sources are “well-funded state propaganda
In other words, only believe what you read in
Washington-controlled propaganda outlets such as the New York Times,
Washington Post, Fox News, CNN, BBC, NPR, and so forth.
The aftermath of the Paris attack is like the
aftermath of the so-called Boston Marathon Bombing. Fifty heavily
armed police converged on two people and murdered them. The murdered
female is described even by RT as a “female suicide bomber.” If the
murdered woman is a suicide bomber, how is she still alive to be
murdered by police? Not even the “Russian propaganda outlet” RT asks
why 50 heavily armed police were unable to capture two people alive
and had to kill them!
A number of readers have sent to me information
that indicates that the Paris attack was reported on both Wikipedia
and Twitter the day before it occurred.
I do not know what to make of this. I do remember that the BBC
reported the collapse of WTC building 7 prior to its collapse. The
BBC reporter is actually standing in front of the still standing WTC
7 as she makes the report of its collapse. In other words,
orchestration mistakes occur. But hardly any of the brainwashed
The question that raises itself is to what extent
is this false flag attack in Paris a hoax. Why don’t we see the
large number of dead and wounded. What we seem to have are uninjured
Where are the eyewitness videos?
Witnesses in behalf of the official story seem to
have performed the same function on other occasions:
Having been at the top of government, journalism,
and academia for a lifetime, it is clear to me that there is a great
deal wrong with the explanations that people are being given.
However, the majority of Western peoples have been thoroughly
brainwashed to believe that anyone who doubts official explanations
is a “conspiracy theorist.”
In other words, only governments and their media
presstitutes tell the truth.
This makes it simple for governments with their
secret agendas to protect their agendas from the facts. Who would
believe me when the alternative is to believe Fox News, CNN, the
BBC, NPR, Dubya, Obama, Wolfowitz, Hollande, Merkel, Cameron, the
If Putin’s government and the Chinese people are
so desperately determined to be part of the “glorious West” that
they will accept a false reality, the world is doomed.
If it is up to Western politicians, the world is
doomed for sure. To the man and the woman they are warmongers.
Moreover, the response to the false flag/hoax attack is mindless.
The morons declare that the West is attacked because it allows women
to be educated. The West is attacked because of “french values and
French way of life, because we dance” (Foreign Minister Laurent
Fabius). In other words, the nonsense that worked for the idiot US
president, George W. Bush, works for the French. “We are attacked
because we are good.” All of us good people here in the West would
never be attacked because we have looted and robbed the Middle East
for a century and followed up the looting with 14 years of military
devastation of seven countries, producing millions of deaths and
Really, it is a wonder that there are not round
the clock REAL TERRORIST ATTACKS on Western countries, who certainly
