Big Money Intends To Shut Down Our Website

By Paul Craig Roberts


‘Big Money wants to shut down my website
and 200 other sites on their Hit List.
I am ready to fight, but where is my army?’

Big Money and the US government controlled by Big Money intend to close down Internet truthtellers. As Trump intends to reduce the tensions between nuclear powers, the 200 List prepared by the shadowy Internet site, PropOrNot, is in Trump’s way. Either Trump will be apprised and convinced of the “Russian threat,” or the dissident websites will be promoted to “Muslim apologists” and fall under the ire of Trump’s Iranophobic generals.

Our site,, is one of the sites targeted to be closed down. As I recently reported, the US House of Representatives already has passed a bill that creates an interagency executive branch committee that can be used to close down truthtellers on the basis that disagreement with the official propaganda reported as news by the presstitutes constitutes spreading fake news or is proof of conspiring with Russia or Iran (and soon, China) against the United States.

Apparently, Trump wants peace with Russia but war with Iran, a contradiction as Russia will not permit the US to have war with Iran. So if Trump and his generals persist, there will be no lessening of tensions between the US and Russia, and by extension with China.

If this is the outcome, Trump will blow up the planet as surely as Hillary would have done.

If Trump does not reduce tensions with Russia and China, there was no point in electing him.

The United States government is such a criminal institution that it is scared to death of truth. People who lie for the US government and their oligarch controllers prosper. Those who tell the truth are unjustly and harshly persecuted: Manning, Snowden, Assange, Kiriakou, Binney, et. al. And now there is a list of 200 websites to be persecuted.

The dictum of the George W. Bush regime—“you are with us or against
us”—has moved to the next stage. My readers are aware that a brand new website, PropagandaOrNot (PropOrNot), compiled a list of the websites that provide real news and independent analysis and branded them “Russian agents.” In other words, if you tell the truth, you are serving Russia, not the US. To serve the US you must tell lies.

For telling the truth, PropOrNot has put me in their swill bucket:

PropOrNot says that our website has “been identified by the PropOrNot propaganda identification service as repeating, echoing, or referring their audience to Russian propaganda. They are highlighted in YYYs. See for more information.”

The Washington Post presstitute, Craig Timberg, wrote an irresponsible and libelous article publicizing the absurd charges of the shadowy and unknown PropOrNot website. Timberg, being a presstitute and not being a real journalist, failed to identify the people and the money behind the libelous charges made by PropOrNot. He reported the charges as if they were true.

Pam and Russ Martens, proprietors of the delightful website,, have researched PropOrNot to identify the corrupt forces that intend to make it a crime to speak truthfully in America.

It wasn’t easy to find out as those responsible for the website are hidden behind multiple covers like offshore tax avoidance corporations. But this is what they found out:

PropOrNot has an agent address in Sante Fe, New Mexico. An agent address serves “as a virtual address for the creation of limited liability corporations that want to keep their actual principals secret. The address has dozens of businesses associated with it. There should also be a corresponding business listed in the online archives of the business registry at the Secretary of State of New Mexico. However, no business with the words Propaganda or PropOrNot or YYY exist in the New Mexico business registry, suggesting PropOrNot is using a double cloaking device to shield its identity by registering under a completely different name.”

Obviously, those behind PropOrNot are either so ashamed of their perfidy or they are such public names that they want to stay hidden so that the American public cannot know who is determined to replace truth with lie.

And public names it is. The Martens find PropOrNot background ties to the billionaire Koch brothers, to the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, to the Sarah Scaife Foundation (the Mellon fortune), ExxonMobil, US Senators Chris Murphy and Rob Portman, who tie into Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, “two Wall Street behemoths that would very much like to pivot the national debate to anything other than Wall Street power and corruption.”

Read the Martens’ report: This is an important report. It shows how money operates against the vast bulk of the American people.

You can see the kind of power that intends to close down truth in America and throughout the entirely of the Western world. How am I going to stand up to this kind of power? I cannot even afford a lawyer to file a defamation suit against the Washington Post, as Naked Capitalism has done. Somehow CounterPunch got off the list. Probably CP has pro bono attorneys. If any of my readers are fighting attorneys, I will split with you any damages you can obtain in a lawsuit against Bezos’ trophy newspaper.

If we get enough money for IPE, I won’t have to make these requests for reader support.

So here is the deal, go after Bezos’ billions. Sue on behalf of this website for libel, and it is a 50-50 split.

I don’t expect any takers, because it is expensive for an attorney to take on the system. If he or she wins the case, he or she is in the money. If he or she loses the case, they are finished. The ruling oligarchy does not forgive; It destroys.

Perhaps the way to minimize the risk is a class action suit in behalf of the 200 on the list. I tried to contact Naked Capitalism about this, but like so much on the Internet, Naked Capitalism is set up only to be contacted by advertisers, etc. A former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury cannot contact Naked Capitalism. The marvel of the digital era is that communication is impossible.

This website is supported financially by a small percentage of the readership. If each of the 400,000 who read this website contributed $1 dollar per month, I could hire lawyers and engineers to protect this webiste from libel and from hacking. If the 400,000 readers of this website contributed only $1 per year, it would be enough for me not to have to put up with the scumbag Washington Post, a suspected CIA asset throughout its entire existence.

If the millions of readers worldwide who rely on this website conributed $1 per year, I would be able to take on Bezos and his fake news newspaper and drive the lying presstitutes into the ground.

Alas, I am ready to fight, but where is my army?


The Darkmoon site, which is also on the same Hit List of 200 websites threatened with destruction, has already taken preemptive measures which we are not at liberty to disclose. Watch this space for further developments.

  1. ” a class action suit in behalf of the 200 on the list” is a good idea, not necessarily all 200, though.

  2. I can’t say that this development is surprising, at least not to me. The MSM knows that it has lost a large part of its audience and that the internet is a large part of why that happened. They want a return to the pre-1990’s era when they were the only source of “news” available to the public. However, this statement by Roberts;
    ” I cannot even afford a lawyer to file a defamation suit against the Washington Post, as Naked Capitalism has done. ”
    seems like an exaggeration. This man was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan and later served as a consultant to the Dept. of Defense, as well as having other monetary “sidelines” going for him over the years.
    Both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party were angry over Hillary’s loss and know that an informed public had much to do with that, so preventing any deviance from The Narrative is paramount to them for the future. It won’t stop with those 200 web sites either. I expect that this one as well as others will be targeted in the future, probably for “hate speech” or some such nonsense.

  3. George Washington warned Americans in his farewell address to avoid foreign entanglements. The Iraq war has been estimated to have cost the American taxpayer about 1.1 Trillion dollars by the latest estimate from Brown University. Mr. Cheney informed American Citizens shortly before the war that the cost would probably be around $80 billion. Cheney, an old Washington hand, lied through his teeth. Services for amputees and serious wounds are continuing costs. By all reliable professional military estimates, a war with Iran would likely cost approximately seven times that amount (though current estimates would certainly be higher) , as Iran is much larger and has proven ability to accept the loss of over a million casualties in the ten year protracted conflict with Saddam Husein’s Iraq. Then, Russia (and China to some extent) will not sit idly by. An attack on Iran was deemed not in America’s interest by Intelligence and Military professionals despite Mr. Cheney applying every pressure possible, then again during the Obama administration when Mr. Netanyahu demanded the same. So if you want to further bankrupt the USA and look forward to far more casualties (which will be continuous – the Iranians will not accept a puppet government) and possibly risk war with Russia and totally destroy the promise to make America great again before even getting started, just suck up to Israel, like so many disastrous US administrations have done before. We”ll hold you accountable – if anything is left.

    1. Wiggins,
      A good start would be a mass boycott of Amazon owned by Bezos. I refuse to have anything to do with that business. There are sound moral reasons for doing so, not only for it’s role in attempting to suppress freedom, but also for the virtual slave conditions it imposes on its workers. I boycott Apple for the same reasons; anti-suicide nets around its factories in China and also the terrible wages it pays its employees in the US and elsewhere.

  4. If Roberts is convinced that he is going to be shutdown, he might as well start mentioning the jews behind what he says is wrong instead of beating around the bush.

  5. If darkmoon proposes a joint action with roberts, i would gladly contribute, whether in chunk or monthly and don’t care for personal dividends.
    Every site could join on the following basis, let’s say DM ponies up $X derived from loyalists to the common pot which may total $Y*X, then in case of successful action, 1/Y from the total proceeds belongs to Darkmoon.
    So lasha, Toby, Sister Monica, monty, lucy and the clan can move somewhere safe, like Thailand – right Felix?

    Easy stuff, get a paypal donate button grafted into the homepage and funnel it to PCR common pot.

    1. @ lobro

      Thanks for this kind and generous offer, but on behalf of the Darkmoon family I must tell you that we are not soliciting donations from anyone and would feel morally obliged to refuse all such offers for help.

      If you remember correctly, I myself offered our mutual friend Rowan Berkeley a couple of hundred dollars a few years ago when he was in financial straits, but he nobly turned me down and said he would get by somehow. And he did. You yourself offered to chip in and Homer (Hp) volunteered to sell his rifle and send RB the cash. I was deeply impressed by that generosity of spirit and even more impressed by Rowan’s refusal to take advantage of the good nature of his friends.

      Anyway, sincere thanks once again for your kindly gesture. As they say, it’s the thought that counts.

      1. Now you all will soon be finding out what Spamblinka is like, what it looks like, what it feels like, and you all can go fuck yourselves and your crocodile tears and your bullshit in Spamblinka, I don’t give a shit. I used to give a shit, I used to care, and for caring all I got was a lifetime sentence in a concentration camp for “thought criminals” for almost always being right, for almost always having The Correct View, for always sharing fact-based truthful information with everybody, for that I was sent to a concentration camp for “thought criminals”.

        And now you all are crying you might get shut-down, after you yourselves have been so CENSORIOUS for years and years and years. I’m supposed to cry you all might get sent to Spamblinka. I don’t think so.

        “Where’s my army?” Duh, your army is in Spamblinka , exactly where you wanted your army to be, in a concentration camp for “thought criminals”. May Trump show NO MERCY, that’s what I say. Fuck all of youse.

  6. Anyway, this is the army of potus Strumpf: watch this vid by Zionist Watch entitled, Trumps jewish cabal
    Real estate attroney Pomerantz : Trump owed in 1990 when the economy and the real estate plumetted 4 billion dollars to his debtors, incl. 1 billion dollars for which he was personally responsible. He owed money all over town, to 72 banks in all….we made the decision that he would be woth more alive to us than dead….
    Amongst ‘we’ was/is Sheldon Adelson, the Merchant of Venice.

    Big Money shutting down 200+ websites, after all it must be Strumpf & his handlers.

  7. At least we were lucky to experience “peak internet freedom”. Notice how they’re silencing us using indirect means: through fear to encourage self-censorship; and through innuendo by linking alternative opinion to “non-violent extremism” and “terrorism”.

    Wikipedia is the shining example for the way of the future — only “mainstream” opinions are allowed on that site. “Mainstream” means the views of our Masters; it is an Orwellian term. Scary times. You know all this already, I am just expressing my frustration.

    The Protocols are rampant and the riders are whoopin’ and hollerin’ as they gallop all over us, “Yeeeeehaaaaaaaaaa! You gaddamn stupid goy.”

    1. Sam –

      Here’s another… THIRD Goldman veteran this time:

      Trump has offered Goldman Sachs executive Gary Cohn a key economic post, which would add another of the firm’s veterans to the administration, sources close to Cohn told NBC News. Cohn, the powerful financial firm’s president and chief operating officer, has been offered the directorship of the National Economic Council.

  9. Dave Hodges of the Common sense show and Mike Adams of Natural News have proposed a class action suit against Bozo’s new play pen the Washington Compose. Of course Dave and Mike like Roberts are reticent to name those who they dare not mention. Little good it did them. And then on the other hand there is the Organization called the NW Front that lands on the minority and Jewish issue with abandon and they are not even included in the now famous list. Harold Covington of the NW Front is put out by not being listed. The really odd thing about all this if you were to put all the principles of the infamous 200 in room for a day they would end up in a fist fight in no time at all. And of course this would not be a safe place for the lib-con-commies in a room full of the 200. The women along with Darkmoon would be treated with due respect as the men have at it.
