Once Only Blacks Were Enslaved, Now We All Are, by Paul Craig Roberts

Echoes of “They Got What They Wanted” from Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

The 4th of July is upon us. We will hear all sorts of patriotic BS about how wonderful we are and how thankful we are to our brave military which defends our liberty.

Not a word will be said about the destruction by the Bush and Obama regimes of the US Constitution, which once protected our liberty far better than any military action.

Not a word will be said about Washington’s 16 years of purely gratuitous war in the Middle East and North Africa that has destroyed in whole or part seven countries, sending millions of war refugees to overrun the Western World and change the quality of life for Western peoples.

Not a word will be said about Washington’s ongoing insane provocations of Russia and China and Iran and Syria and North Korea that are likely to end in nuclear Armageddon.

Speeches will celebrate “the exceptional, indispensable USA,” and fireworks will go off, preludes to the onrushing nuclear Armageddon.

While we listen to speeches of our wonderful fairy tale life, how lucky we are to be so beloved by our Great Democratic Government, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has issued an all points bulletin urging its members to wake up and to urge their US Senators “to oppose the American Health Care Act passed by the House. This harmful bill gives billions of dollars to special interests while sticking ordinary Americans with huge premium hikes. It includes an age tax that would force older Americans to pay thousands of dollars more for their health insurance. it weakens Medicare and removes protections for people with pre-existing conditions. I urge you to represent my interests—not those of the drug and insurance companies.”

The last sentence astounded me. How is it possible that a lobby group for retired people can possibly believe that the House and Senate have any interest in serving the American people?

The House and Senate serve the people who have money, and those people are not the elderly. Thanks to the Federal Reserve, the elderly have not had any interest income on their savings for a decade.

  1. Robert, If you have a contact button, I missed it, but hopefully you will see this. I am the education chair for a group of mostly like minded people (with you – or at least some are). I really would love to do a book study on The Golden Pinnacle. I’ve done many book studies in the past, but never a novel so this would be a first. I’ve done things like The Liberty Amendments by Mark Levin, Nullification by Tom Wood, and Suicide Pact by Judge Napolitano, and quite a few others.

    The problem is doing a book study with an e-book because the cost of the paperback is so prohibitive. I feel most people are reluctant to spend $25 on a novel. However as the facilitator it might be difficult to use the e-book.

    The question is are there any other viable opportunities to get the paperback cheaper, or do you have an idea how to do a book study from an e-book?

    I haven’t finished the book yet – too busy highlighting and doing side research like JJ Hill. But I absolutely love the book and want to share it with the world. I love how you have told this marvelous story with fantastic characters and embodied all your principles and ideals within. It’s amazing.

    We have a meeting at 6 pm tonight and I’m going to offer the opportunity for participation. I am anxious to hear your thoughts.

    Nancy Murdoch


    • Nancy,
      For a group order I can get you The Golden Pinnacle at $15 per book plus shipping and handling. I’m not sure I can do it, but I’d try to ship it straight to your mailing address from Amazon to save the expense of shipping it twice (once to me, and from me to you). Would that work?


  2. Yes I think we can make that work. I got a positive reception from the group. I need to check with several that missed the meeting, but it looks like I will need at least 10 copies. I have a prime account with Amazon if that could be used. Regardless, the $15 price is not bad. I will let you know as soon as I can about the exact number and you can find out about the shipping situation.


    • Nancy,
      You tell me how many books you need and I’ll order them from Amazon. I think I can have them sent directly to you. It will be $15 per book plus postage and you send me a check. My email is robertgore1@me.com for further communications.
