Paul Craig Roberts: How The Government’s Lies Become Truth

In my last column, “A Culture of Delusion,” I wrote that “Americans live in a matrix of lies. Lies dominate every policy discussion, every political decision.” This column will use two top news stories, Iranian nukes and Julian Assange, to illustrate how lies become “truth.”

The western Presstitute media uses every lie to demonize the Iranian government. On September 28 in a fit of unmitigated ignorance, the UK rag, Mail Online, called the president of Iran a “dictator.” The Iranian presidency is an office filled by popular election, and the authority of the office is subordinate to the ayatollahs. Assange is demonized alternatively as a rapist and a spy.

A powerful piece. I had no idea about the Lebonese water issue.

Assange is effectively in a low-security prison already. I wouldn't be surprised if, at some point, we just storm the embassy and kill him. Even if they manage to sneak him out and get him to Ecuador, I wouldn't be surprised if the CIA finds him and kills him.

As Jesse Ventura says, "I love my country. I hate my government."

He is being tortured as is Manning.

Assange has a persistent cough and seeming lung infection but of course is unable to access medical care. One way or another they are determined to get him, dead or alive.

Thanks for a bump

They have all kinds of methods.
One day we might hear on CNN that Assange suffered a heart attack or something.
