Donald Trump Is Being Persecuted for Standing Up for the American People


by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

I post again my explanation of The Political Outlook.  But first I offer more explanation why Trump is our last chance despite his incorrect positions on some issues, and despite his incompetence in his first term in staffing his administration and failure  to stand behind General Flynn, thus setting off Russiagate and marking himself for failure.  

As I predicted, Trump took on the ruling establishment without an administration committed to the task. Trump’s appointees, which include the current FBI director, could not have been any worse.  In effect, Trump doomed himself to failure and persecution.


Trump permitted himself to be buffaloed by Fauci and the media and endorsed vaccination with the deadly and health-destroying mRNA “Covid vaccines.”  

Trump blamed China for trade imbalances, not Wall Street and the offshoring corporations who forced the shutdown of American manufacturing and its movement to China and other parts of Asia.  Trump’s misunderstanding and hostility toward China played directly into the hands of the neoconservatives, who are risking all of our lives with their confrontations with Russia.

I could go on, but it is clear that Trump’s administration saddled him with misguided policies.

So why do I say he is our last chance?  

My answer is that Trump understands that the American Establishment runs things for them, not for the American people.  Trump has the independence, means, and courage to stand up to those who have stolen our country.

Trump has been persecuted for seven years by the American Establishment using the media and Department of Justice (sic) to prevent Trump from representing Americans by confronting Trump with an orchestrated “Russiagate, two orchestrated House impeachments, an orchestrated “January 6 insurrection,” an orchestrated “documents gate,” a felony prosecution without basis by the corrupt Democrat NY Justice (sic) system, and with a pending second false prosecution from Democrat Fulton County, Georgia.

When a person stands forth in defense of the liberties and livelihoods of the American people and receives punishment of this magnitude, and the American people do not rally to him and stand by him, the people are doomed.  If the American people accept the official narrative about Donald Trump they have signed a death warrant for their own liberty.

The message that the blatantly false accusations against an American President sends to all future candidates is that your success depends on representing the establishment, not the people. 

The Political Outlook

Paul Craig Roberts

Some readers have asked me if Special Counsel John Durham’s report vindicating Trump from the FBI’s false Russiagate charges and Durham’s criticisms of the FBI for unethical and criminal behavior have boosted Trump’s chances for reelection.  Readers also want to know if the FBI’s blatant protection of Joe and Hunter Biden by refusing a House subpoena to release a document that incriminates the Bidens in criminal activity, together with Biden’s infirmities of age, have lost the election for Biden.

Clearly the FBI’s gross interference in presidential elections is a fact.  But to be clear, my forte is not politics.  Some think that because I was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and a member of the Congressional staff I know all about politics.  Having watched politics in operation, I do know something, but I had a policy role, not a political function, in my government years. 

In the Congressional staff my role was to devise a supply-side policy that would end stagflation and would be acceptable both to Democrats and Republicans.  In the Treasury my role was to get President Reagan’s supply-side policy out of his administration without it being so watered down in compromises that it would be ineffectual.  Later I had a role in helping Reagan end the Cold War.
