Paul Craig Roberts - Fake News List Death Knell for MSM/Dollar Should Be Reduced Already to the Level of Toilet Paper


Economic expert and journalist Dr. Paul Craig Roberts thinks the recent publication of the so-called ‘fake news” list recently published by the Washington Post signals a major turning point for all of the mainstream media (MSM). Dr. Roberts explains, “I think this is the death knell for the mainstream media. I think this list essentially kills the credibility of the mainstream media and certainly the Washington Post. It has demonstrated it is completely devoid of any integrity. I am a former Wall Street Journal editor, and if we had done something like that, Warren Phillips would have fired every one of us. We would have been told to get out. You can’t carry on this kind of assault on people. I think this is a sign of desperation.”

On why the markets haven’t crashed, Dr. Roberts, who was an Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, says, “The markets are all rigged. So, when you try to look at the markets in traditional ways such as price/earnings ratios, earnings growth, or sales growth or any kinds of things like this, they don’t know anything because the Federal Reserve has probably the largest trading desk in the world. They can trade anything, in fact, everything, and they have no limits on their pocketbook. . . . In order for the Fed to protect the dollar, the dollar’s exchange value from the massive outpouring of dollars that the Fed created to buy all the bonds, they had to stop the dollar from falling in relation to gold. So, they have to go in and sell massive amounts of gold shorts in the futures markets. This is how they knock the gold price down. . . . Unless the world runs on the dollar or unless the rest of the world abandons the dollar, I can’t see anything that would bring down this house of cards. They can continue this because the Fed can create all the money it wants. There is no limit.”

On the oligarchs trying to control Donald Trump with the threat of crashing the economy, Dr. Roberts contends, “The easiest thing for the oligarchs to do would be to orchestrate an economic crash, and they can do this easily because it’s a house of cards held up by the Fed. If they come to the conclusion that they can’t control him and he is actually a threat to them, they’ll just crash the economy, and then they’ll go to Trump and say hey look, you are blamed for this and on the defensive. If you want to get out of this, you have to appoint us, and we’ll get you out of this. That’s the sort of power that the oligarchs have over Trump. I have said from the beginning that Trump has the sort of strong will you have to have to bring change from the top down.”
