On September 9th the Washington Post featured a front page article describing how the Defense Department had used warplanes to attack targets and kill suspected militants in six countries over the Labor Day weekend. The article was celebratory, citing Pentagon officials who boasted of the ability to engage “multiple targets” anywhere in the world in what has become a “permanent war.” The article did not mention that the United States is not currently at war with any of the six target countries and made no attempt to make a case that the men and women who were killed actually threatened the U.S. or American citizens.

Actual American interests in fighting a war without limits and without an end were not described. They never are. Indeed, in the U.S. and elsewhere many citizens often wonder how certain government policies like the Washington’s war on terror can persist in spite of widespread popular opposition or clear perceptions that they are either ineffective or even harmful. This persistence of policies regarding which there is no debate is sometimes attributed to a “deep state.”

The phrase “deep state” originated in and was often applied to Turkey, in Turkish “Derin Devlet,” where the nation’s security services and governing elite traditionally pursued the same chauvinistic and inward-looking agenda both domestically and in foreign affairs no matter who was prime minister.

In countries where a deep state dominates, real democracy and rule of law are inevitably the first victims. A deep state like Turkey’s is traditionally organized around a center of official and publicly accepted power, which means it often includes senior government officials, the police and intelligence services as well as the military. For the police and intelligence agencies the propensity to operate in secret is a sine qua non for the deep state as it provides cover for the maintenance of relationships that under other circumstances would be considered suspect or even illegal.

It has been claimed that deep state activities in Turkey are frequently conducted through connivance with politicians who are able to provide cover for the activity, with corporate interests and sometimes even with criminal groups, which can operate across borders and help in the mundane tasks of political corruption to include money laundering. This connection of political power with the ability to operate under the radar and generate considerable cash flows are characteristic of deep state.

As all governments for sometimes good reasons engage in concealment of their more questionable activities or even resort to out and out deception, one must ask how the deep state differs. While an elected government might sometimes engage in activity that is legally or morally questionable there are normally some checks and balances in place to limit resort to such activity as well as periodic elections to repudiate what is done. For players in the deep state, there are no accountability and no legal limits and everything is based on self-interest justified through assertion of patriotism and the national interest if they are ever challenged.

Every country has a deep state of some kind even if it goes by another name. “The Establishment” or “old boys’ network” was widely recognized in twentieth century Britain. “Establishment” has often also been used in the United States, describing a community of shared values and interests that has evolved post-Second World War from the Washington-New York axis of senior government officials and financial services executives. They together constitute a group that claims to know what is “best” for the country and act accordingly, no matter who sits in the White House. They generally operate in the shadows but occasionally surface and become public, as when 50 foreign so-called policy experts or former senior officials write letters staking out political positions, as has been occurring recently. The “experts” are currently weighing in to both support and fund the campaign of Hillary Clinton, who, they believe, shares their views and priorities.

The deep state principle should sound familiar to Americans who have been following political developments over the past twenty years. For the deep state to be effective it must be intimately associated with the development or pre-existence of a national security state. There must also be a perception that the nation is in peril, justifying extraordinary measures undertaken by self-described patriots to preserve life and property of the citizenry. Those measures are generically conservative in nature, intended to protect the status quo with the implication that change is dangerous.

Those requirements certainly prevail in post 9/11 America and also feed the other essential component of the deep state, that the control should work secretly or at least under the radar. Consider for a moment how Washington operates. There is gridlock in Congress and the legislature opposes nearly everything that the White House supports. Nevertheless, certain things happen seemingly without any discussion, including the bipartisan, unconstitutional and extremely dangerous assumption of increased executive authority by the White House.

As the Post article demonstrates, there is also widespread acceptance by our country’s elites of the fiction that America is threatened and that Washington has a right to intervene preemptively anywhere in the world at any time. Unpopular and unconstitutional wars continue in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq while the American president routinely claims the meaningless title “leader of the free world” even as he threatens countries that do not adhere to norms dictated by Washington. In the case of Russia, some American leaders actually believe a potentially nuclear war can be won and should be considered while at least one general has taken steps to bring about such a conflict.

Meanwhile both targeted citizens and often innocent foreigners who fit profiles are assassinated by drones without any legal process or framework. Lying to start a war as well as the war crimes committed by U.S. troops and contractors on far flung battlefields including torture and rendition are rarely investigated and punishment of any kind is so rare as to be remarkable when it does occur.

Here at home banks are bailed out and corporate interests are protected by law. Huge multi-year defense contracts are approved for ships and planes that are both vulnerable and money pits. The public is routinely surveilled, citizens are imprisoned without being charged or are tried by military tribunals, the government increasingly cites state secrets privilege to conceal its actions and whistleblowers are punished with prison. America the warlike predatory capitalist operating with little interference or input from the citizenry might be considered a virtual definition of deep state.

Some observers believe that the deep state is driven by the “Washington Consensus,” a subset of the “American exceptionalism” meme. It is plausible to consider it a 1950s creation, the end product of the “military industrial complex” that Dwight Eisenhower warned about, but some believe its infrastructure was actually put in place through the passage of the Federal Reserve Act prior to the First World War. Several years after signing the bill, Woodrow Wilson reportedly lamented “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

As I have noted, America’s deep state is something of a hybrid creature that operates along a New York to Washington axis. Where the Turks sometimes engage in unambiguous criminal activity like drug trafficking to fund themselves the Washington elite instead turns to the banksters, lobbyists and defense contractors, operating much more in the open and, ostensibly, legally. U.S. style deep state includes all the obvious parties, both public and private, who benefit from the status quo to include key players in the police and intelligence agencies, the military, the treasury and justice departments and in the judiciary. It is structured to materially reward those who play along with the charade and the glue to accomplish that comes ultimately from Wall Street. “Financial services” might well be considered the epicenter of the entire process. Even though government is needed to implement desired policies, the banksters comprise the truly essential element, capable of providing genuine rewards for compliance. As corporate interests increasingly own the media, little dissent comes from the Fourth Estate as the process plays out while many of the proliferating Washington think tanks that provide deep state “intellectual” credibility are similarly funded by defense contractors.

The cross fertilization that is essential to make the system work takes place through the famous revolving door whereby senior government officials enter the private sector at a high level. In some cases the door revolves a number of times, with officials leaving government before returning in an even more elevated position. This has been characteristic of the rise of the so-called neoconservatives. Along the way, those select individuals are protected, promoted and groomed for bigger things. The senior government officials, ex-generals, and high level intelligence operatives who participate find themselves with multi-million dollar homes for their retirement years, cushioned by a tidy pile of investments.

The deep state in American is completely corrupt because it exists to sell out the public interest and it includes both major political parties as well as government officials. Politicians like the Clintons who leave the White House “broke” and accumulate more than $100 million in a few years exemplify how it rewards its friends while a bloated Pentagon churns out hundreds of unneeded flag officers who receive munificent pensions and benefits for the rest of their lives. And no one is punished, ever. Disgraced former general and CIA Director David Petraeus is now a partner at the KKR private equity firm even though he knows nothing about financial services. More recently, former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell, who supports Hillary and is publicly advocating assassinating Russians and Iranians, has become a Senior Counselor at Clinton-linked Beacon Global Strategies. Both Petraeus and Morell are being rewarded for their loyalty to the system.

What makes the deep state so successful? It wins no matter who is in power by creating bipartisan supported money pits within the system. Unending wars and simmering though hard to define threats together invite more spending on national security and make for good business. Monetizing the completely unnecessary and hideously expensive global war on terror benefits the senior government officials, beltway industries and financial services that feed off it. Because it is essential to keep the money flowing, the deep state persists in promoting policies that otherwise make no sense, to include the unwinnable wars currently enjoying marquee status in Iraq/Syria and Afghanistan. The deep state knows that a fearmongered public will buy its product and does not even have to make much of an effort to sell it.

The United States of America is not exactly deep state Turkey but to be sure any democracy can be subverted by particular interests hiding behind the mask of patriotism buttressed by phony international threats. Ordinary Americans frequently ask why politicians and government officials appear to be so obtuse, rarely recognizing what is actually occurring in the country. That is partly due to the fact that the political class lives in a bubble of its own creation but it might also be because many of America’s leaders actually accept and benefit from the fact that there is an unelected, un-appointed and unaccountable presence within the system that actually manages what is taking place from behind the scenes. That would be the American deep state.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America’s Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America’s Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces–not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving ‘anti-Semitism’.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they’re still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America’s cross hairs. And don’t forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel’s Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America’s southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been ‘radicalized’ by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It’s all just a coincidence.

    This ‘Islamic threat’ has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Let’s face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America’s Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

    A must see for every American is the documentary Detroit on Fire, a look at the arson/vacant home problem in Detroit through the eyes of the Detroit Fire Department.

    https://youtu.be/pDoUpXNmcZA


    The newly appointed fire department chief is told to make do with a paltry budget in trying to fight all the fires. We learn that because of these budget constraints, Detroit has insufficient funds to repair, let alone purchase new, fire trucks. As a result, the FD didn't have a functioning fire truck to put out a fire that consumed the life of a little 3-yr old girl.

    Here's how one American reacted, by posting the following comment in the comments section of YouTube:

    We have no money for this, we have no money for that. And this, by a long way, is the richest country in the world? what the f*ck is going on????
     
    As Mark rightly points out, because of how the media "filters the information and shapes the narrative," few Americans can connect the dots. Few realize that the little 3-yr old girl perished because there is no money to repair/purchase fire trucks because all the money (trillions of dollars) is being spent to enhance the security of the people living in the villa in the jungle, while 45 million Americans rely on food stamps, 1 million about to lose them. That's one in seven Americans that still depend on food stamps (Bloomberg News.Feb 4, 2016).

    Can you imagine how the trillions of dollars spent on securing Israel could be put to use in America to revitalize their schools, hospitals, and infrastructure? Instead, because of the influence of The Lobby, these vast sums of money are being redirected to fight the bogus war on terror (aka War on Islam), a front to remake MENA by regime changing those countries deemed hostile to the Zionist project, all in an effort to protect the people residing in the villa in the jungle, not those residing in America, whose villa is slowly but surely being transformed into a veritable jungle.

    The only problem with your conspiracy theory is the fact the deep state hates Israel. The destruction of Syria is not in Israel's best interest either.

    "America the warlike predatory capitalist operating with little interference or input from the citizenry might be considered a virtual definition of deep state."

    A deep state has no allegiance but to power & money. Its existence depends on a mature security apparatus that works exclusively for the benefits of Deep State. Leaders of Deep State are not encumbered by loyalty, principles, dignity, and other humanistic stuff... Deep State is a manifestation of victorious psychopathy, which means no empathy, no responsibility, and the all-encompassing, parasitoid mentality.
    By a historical accident, the US has also become a host for parasitic Zionists that use the vast resources and current position of the US to advance Eretz Israel. In the process of using the plump host, the ziocons have been finishing once and for all with the heavily-promoted picture of always-victimized Jews; instead the humankind has been learning that the murderous reptilian proclivities emerge in Jewish people with the same extreme intensity as in any other ethnic/religious group.
    Implementation of Oded Yinon plan - the destruction of Iraq, Syria, and Libya - makes moral ruin of Holocaust museums.

    Hey Geokat62, good to see you.

    Good to see that someone from Up There is aware of how the distortions of foreign policy are negatively impacting lives and property Down Here. Detroit is not the only city that is a mess. I thought to save the cost of tolls and instead drove through the heart of Baltimore city, and it's tragic. (It also took about 90 minutes rather than the 10 min. toll road route).

    I wanted to see when you last commented and noticed, to my embarrassment, that in late August you responded to my comment that disparaged Greek culture --

    http://www.unz.com/article/jewish-fear-and-loathing-of-donald-trump/#comment-1548686

    I don't remember much from high school but I do remember being enthralled with "the Golden Age of Greece," with Pericles. I recall reading The Allegory of the Cave -- didn't fully understand it, but it's stayed with me and matured.
    In short, I am profoundly sorry for my wise-acre comment about the deplorable state of Greek civilization, not least because revitalized access to the Greeks gave rise to the flowering of the Italian Renaissance and my hero, Machiavelli.

    In that comment you also called me to account for my hyperbolic assertions regarding Yossi Alpher, and what I claimed were his (sob) statements that Israelis pine to be like Iran, to be linked to the ancient Persian empire.

    Here is an extended quote from which I distilled that notion:

    BRUCE REIDEL set the context and asked:

    It seems to me the centerpiece of the [periphery] strategy was Iran, and one of the things you lay out in the book is that even when the revolution comes in 1978, and the events that follow from it, desire to get back to the good old days was so strong. Can you give us a sense of -- I call it, and I think you call it – the periphery nostalgia that lingered on, which, you know, in this town
    now, all we ever hear from Israelis is that Iran is the source of all evil, but if you go back 30 years you would have been told, no, Iran is the source of all wisdom and the partner that we really need.
     
    ALPHER responded:


    I call it periphery nostalgia, because it still exists. There are still very senior Israelis -- and I have a long list of quotes from people like Ehud Barak, Uri Lubrani, those of you who know him, people are still around who were very active in the relationship before the Shah fell and who, indeed, believe to this day that the Islamic Republic is an aberration and a temporary one, and if you somehow push the right military or sanctions button or whatever, they will fall and the good guys will come back to power. [imo this is a very important insight -S2C]

    Now, here I have to go back a little bit to explain how we related, particularly to Iran, Turkey, and Ethiopia, which were, indeed, the pillars of the periphery in the ‘50s and ‘60s and ‘70s.

    We Israelis, again, back to that isolation -- we Israelis, to this day, have a need to -- a deep need to be recognized and accepted by the region. You see, Bibi’s demand, which is supported by most Israelis, that the Palestinians recognize us as a Jewish state, or the state of the Jewish people -- the nation-state of the Jewish people -- this goes way back, this need to be recognized. It explains our relationships with some of the Christian and Kurdish and Druze minorities as well, and so at the height of the periphery doctrine, when things are going well, there’s this sense that the ancient peoples of the Middle East have created an alliance, the people who precede the Arabs, okay. We go back with Iran, we just celebrated Purim, all right, we go back 2,600 years with Iran. The Egyptian, the Ethiopian national narrative is King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. So, this is almost a biblical -- a new biblical chapter.
    This is how some people in Israel felt.


    There were also some people who were just cynical,practitioners of realpolitik. Everybody in Tehran and in Addis and in Ankara were cynical practitioners of realpolitik. They did not reciprocate. They said, we kidded ourselves that they did.

    And we still do to this day, because if you believe that this is -- we are somehow Middle Eastern, ancient blood brothers, then who’s Khomeini? This wasn’t meant to be.

    And so the Shah falls, and there are all kinds of Iranians going around making contacts, and if you just give us this, that, and the other, we’ll get rid of these guys and go back to the good old days.
     
    You cited Rabbi Ken Spiro (not one of my favorites, but a useful source for information) as he traced the linkages between Jewish culture and Greek wisdom.
    If I'm not mistaken, those connections emerged only in later pre-Christian and the earliest Christian times. The Jewish relationship with Persia goes back to the time of Cyrus, as Alpher implies when he made reference to Purim (although why he would think that supplanting the Persian queen and foreign minister, suborning the king, and killing the foreign minister, his sons, and 70,000 Persians would endear Yehud to the Persian royal line let alone make them "blood brothers" escapes me).
    Jews relied on Persian support in a very bloody assault on Roman Jerusalem in about 600 AD (iirc), and as Alpher reflected, Zionist Israel relied heavily upon, and was intricately embedded in, the Shah's government. In "The Thirty Years' War," Ronen Bergman details how destabilized Israelis were when the Shah's government fell; Israelis responded by stealing what they could from Iran, and " 'sell-sell-selling' millions of dollars worth of inferior weapons to Iran in their war with Iraq, to generate revenue and to watch them kill each other."

    I admit that my commentary on Alpher's statements was wildly exaggerated: I don't have a $38 billion budget or the ability to demonize Iran in three negative comments per day in a Yahoo news feed, so I shout and scream and set what's left of my hair on fire. I do believe that my comment was substantially accurate in its essence; and that it provides important insights into the Israeli psyche as it informs Israeli strategy.

    Since this comment is reaching back to an old topic, I won't disrupt Phil's excellent article further.

    Just wanted to say Hey, and clear the record. I believe, and you should remain aware, that your contributions to this forum are valued.

    Hamilton, ON
    Sunday, September 18, 2016

    Please see attached and below:

    OPEN LETTER RE: “THE WHITE HELMETS”

    To the Federal Caucus of the New Democratic Party

    Dear Members of Parliament:

    It is with great disappointment and regret that we find ourselves calling into question your unanimous caucus decision1, announced by MP Nathan Cullen, to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization in Syria for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016. After all, as an anti-war organization formed to oppose the Anglo-American attack on Iraq in 2003, our Coalition was founded in part by NDP members in the greater Hamilton/Burlington area and one NDP riding association in Hamilton. Many of our present executive and rank-and-file members either belong to and/or support the NDP.

    In making his announcement, Cullen called the White Helmets “incredible civilians”, “connected to peace”, “the best of humanity”, “saving lives…in the midst of terror.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth.

    The White Helmets organization was founded by James LeMesurier, a British army officer formerly connected to the notorious Blackwater mercenary organization. The White Helmets describe themselves as “fiercely independent.” However, they are actually well-funded by the same governments who are waging the current aggression against Syria. In the past 2.5 years, they received £19.7m. from the British government and $23m. from the US government. Millions more dollars in cash, equipment, and training were contributed by various European NATO countries (including $4.5m. from the Netherlands).2 Would the caucus members agree that these amply-documented facts prove the White Helmets are NOT fiercely independent?

    The White Helmets operate only in terrorist-controlled areas of Syria. The organization is, in fact, deeply embedded in the Nusra (Al Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria) and ISIS terrorist networks.

    Is Mr. Cullen and the caucus unaware that the White Helmet leader, Raed Saleh, was refused entry to the USA and deported from Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, on March 29, 2016, because immigration officials found that he had “terrorist connections.”3 Saleh has repeatedly called for a no-fly zone over Syria, the same tactic used by NATO in 2011 to bomb Libya into a failed state.

    The White Helmets are first-responder poseurs. The REAL Syria Civil Defence was established in Syria in 1953 and was a founding member of the ICDO [International Civil Defence Org.] which is recognised by the United Nations. The White Helmets were only formed in 2013 by the UK, Turkey, and the US as part of their neocolonialist program in Syria. The White Helmets are not members of the ICDO.

    In short, contrary to Mr. Cullen’s statement to the CBC, the White Helmets are not civilians. And they are not “connected to peace.” In fact, they were recruited as part of the illegal regime change operation in Syria responsible for nearly half a million deaths, 11 million displaced persons, and the widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure. They are part of the reason that over 25,000 Syrian refugees have had to look to Canada for resettlement. And, being embedded directly in Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise hardly qualifies them to be “the best of humanity.”

    To his credit, party leader Tom Mulcair argued on March 20, 2015, in the House of Commons against expanding the Canadian military mission in the Middle East to include the bombing of Syria:

    Canada does not have the legal grounds to conduct airstrikes in Syria.

    ‘But our friends are doing it’ is simply not a defence. That sort of childish reasoning is more suitable to the schoolyard than it is to the House of Commons and the Prime Minister should know better.

    The fact is, what this government is proposing will put our Canadian Forces in the dubious position of acting outside of international law.

    New Democrats will not stand for it. 4

    The White Helmets call for a no-fly zone over Syria, a policy much-favoured by the Pentagon, but completely at odds with the view (expressed above) of the NDP leadership in the House of Commons. For this reason, the NDP should also not stand in support of the White Helmets.

    We note that your decision to support the White Helmets was taken unilaterally at a closed caucus retreat held several days ago in Montebello, Quebec. This matter was NOT raised at the NDP policy conference in Edmonton only a few months ago in April 2016. In fact, at that conference, party leaders prevented a wide-ranging discussion of the Syrian and Palestinian conflicts from taking place, as well as the $15 b. Canadian sale of arms to Saudi Arabia. A resolution, endorsed by several riding associations, for the party to engage in a wide-ranging foreign policy review was likewise prevented from even coming to the convention floor.

    We would like to emphasize that the humanitarian tragedy in Syria has gone on for far too long: five and a half years. The White Helmet organization does NOT seek to end the tragedy. Instead, it’s part of the propaganda apparatus of the same western governments (which included the Harper government of Canada) that were responsible for causing the tragedy in the first place. They use the White Helmets organization to promote further violence and bloodshed against the Syrian people, up to and including a full-scale and direct western military intervention in Syria.

    Judging by Cullen’s statement, it’s obvious that the caucus did not consider the partisan and fraudulent nature of the White Helmets. We urge you, then, to reverse your decision to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization for the Nobel Peace Prize. Further, our anti-war Coalition urges you to lobby for an end to Canadian economic sanctions against Syria and for a resumption of normal diplomatic relations with the government of Syria. We also hope that you will call for an end to Canada’s participation of the so-called “Friends of Syria” Group of Countries, which was put together in 2012, partly with the help of the Harper government, to wage a proxy war, using terrorist mercenaries, against the Government of Syria. And, we expect that the NDP in Parliament will continue to oppose the participation of the Trudeau government in the US-led coalition in Syria and Iraq.

    Thank you for your consideration of this very important matter.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America's Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

  4. Sounds just like Professor Wolin’s description of inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy. It’s unfortunate, but historically most populations will tacitly accept wars waged by their elites, as long as they do not involve any personal loss or destruction. Since America is not credibly threatened by any of the many countries that are being bombed or where covert operations, proxies, contractors and actual troops are fighting, there is no perceived downside that is sufficient to generate effective opposition, just the gradual attrition of the productive economy, militarization towards a garrison state with its concomitant loss of freedom, replaced by libertinism and licentiousness as degraded substitutes. Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, worsens all the democratically unaccountable policies that require ever more resources of the same pernicious sort to try to sustain.

    Does that mean that the system will eventually self-destruct?

    Is that what happened to Weimar?

    Weimar (Germany) was a much small operation.

    Will USA fragment, with states that manage to remain prosperous and more-or-less self-governing, or states having a sound central/state government, breaking off from the corrupted whole?

    [ Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, ]

    The dollar is more than sustainable. No one can see into the indefinite future, yet as things stand today the dollar's position is unassailable. For those that feel otherwise are free to hold their assets in other denominations. How many would?

    In his 1930 essay “Economic Possibility of Our Grandchildren,” John Maynard Keynes forecast a future governed by a different set of expectations. The 21st century’s work week would last just 15 hours, he said, and the chief social challenge of the future would be the difficulty of managing leisure and abundance.

    “For the first time since his creation man will be faced with his real, his permanent problem,” Keynes wrote, “how to use his freedom from pressing economic cares, how to occupy the leisure, which science and compound interest will have won for him, to live wisely and agreeably and well."

    Well that reality has arrived; for many, a great many in fact in the West, do not actually need to put in 40 hrs of work per week. Unfortunately it hasn't for the greater many, and on that score one only has to underline the lack of fiscal policy. Now, it is reasonable to argue that such a shortcoming is only a manifestation of the deep state. All societies start with egalitarian wealth distributions but inevitably end with inequality, disquiet and angst. It's the human condition.

    The Washington Post didn’t mention those six nations bombed by the Pentagon because those countries are victims of a proxy war for the Zionist regime.

    Since the 1940s including the WWII America never waged wars to defend America from a foreign threat – as there were no such threats. I invaded other nations to loot their natural resources and establish a new colonial empire to please the military establishment and Jewish Lobby group.

    In June 2015, a team of US investigators and lawyers led by former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, sued George Bush and his senior administration officials over illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003 on Jewish Purim night.

    The war against US-puppet Saddam Hussein by the US and the Zionist-controlled European nations’ bloody war began in 1991 as result of his failure to topple Islamic regime in Tehran during 8-year of Iraqi invasion of Iran. The war was funded by Saudi Arabia, Emir of Kuwait, the US, Israel, France and Britain.

    Recently, Ramsey Clark appeared on RT show hosted by Abby Martin (watch below). During the interview Clark narrated the horrors Iraqi people especially children suffered at the hands of US administration since 1991.

    Philip Zelikow (Jewish), former senior official of the so-called “9/11 Commission”, admitted on September 10, 2002 that Iraq was invaded by the US forces because Saddam Hussein became a threat to Israel.

    Former US secretary of state, Madeleine Albright (Jewish) had claimed that killing of 500,000 Iraqi babies was worth the price (to remove threat to Israel).

    Donald Trump is not the first anti-Muslim American bigot. The great majority of US Congressmen and Senators including Hillary Clinton and John McCain have a long history of voting in favor of Israel’s proxy wars against Muslims. In 2002, Republican-led Congress 196:133, and Democratic-led Senate 77:23 voted authorizing Bush to attack Iraq blaming Saddam Hussein for 9/11 attacks.

    In August 2012, Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that four women were arrested for praying in the women’s section of the Wailing Wall. After keeping them under lock for half-a-day, the Jewish security police released them on the condition that they would not enter the area for praying for the next 50 days. If any of those women decided to go back on their promise, she could face up to 18 months in jail under Israeli law for “being danger to public peace”.

    As US cities decay...
     
    A must see for every American is the documentary Detroit on Fire, a look at the arson/vacant home problem in Detroit through the eyes of the Detroit Fire Department.

    https://youtu.be/pDoUpXNmcZA


    The newly appointed fire department chief is told to make do with a paltry budget in trying to fight all the fires. We learn that because of these budget constraints, Detroit has insufficient funds to repair, let alone purchase new, fire trucks. As a result, the FD didn't have a functioning fire truck to put out a fire that consumed the life of a little 3-yr old girl.

    Here's how one American reacted, by posting the following comment in the comments section of YouTube:

    We have no money for this, we have no money for that. And this, by a long way, is the richest country in the world? what the f*ck is going on????
     
    As Mark rightly points out, because of how the media "filters the information and shapes the narrative," few Americans can connect the dots. Few realize that the little 3-yr old girl perished because there is no money to repair/purchase fire trucks because all the money (trillions of dollars) is being spent to enhance the security of the people living in the villa in the jungle, while 45 million Americans rely on food stamps, 1 million about to lose them. That's one in seven Americans that still depend on food stamps (Bloomberg News.Feb 4, 2016).

    Can you imagine how the trillions of dollars spent on securing Israel could be put to use in America to revitalize their schools, hospitals, and infrastructure? Instead, because of the influence of The Lobby, these vast sums of money are being redirected to fight the bogus war on terror (aka War on Islam), a front to remake MENA by regime changing those countries deemed hostile to the Zionist project, all in an effort to protect the people residing in the villa in the jungle, not those residing in America, whose villa is slowly but surely being transformed into a veritable jungle.

    the fiction that America is threatened and that Washington has a right to intervene preemptively anywhere in the world at any time. Unpopular and unconstitutional wars continue in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq while the American president routinely claims the meaningless title “leader of the free world” even as he threatens countries that do not adhere to norms dictated by Washington. In the case of Russia, some American leaders actually believe a potentially nuclear war can be won and should be considered while at least one general has taken steps to bring about such a conflict.

    Meanwhile both targeted citizens and often innocent foreigners who fit profiles are assassinated by drones without any legal process or framework. Lying to start a war as well as the war crimes committed by U.S. troops and contractors on far flung battlefields including torture and rendition are rarely investigated and punishment of any kind is so rare as to be remarkable when it does occur.

    great article!

    (as usual)

    but reading all this and the comments too, and relentlessly lamenting our current state of affairs without any solutions, is rather grating for me.

    This is the thing. We all know that every single bit of what Mr. Giraldi is writing about here is all a direct consequence of 911. All of it. And we know (or at least I suspect most of us know) that 911 was an easily proven and by now well-demonstrated false flag. The evidence is glaring!

    So my question is.. why aren’t more people doing more to point that out? If the truth about 911 were to become widely exposed, then so too would the deepstate that was directly responsible for 911 !

    we have the smoking gun to bury these psychopaths, if we’re only willing to use it.

    Sure, they’ll circle the wagons and would fight us all tooth and nail. But if the entire world rallied around 911 truth, and exposed these criminals and traitors for what they are, then all the things Mr. Giraldi and Mark Green and all the rest of us are talking about would finally have a solution.

    We need more and more people to find the courage to say the emperor wears no clothes, and that 911 did not happened the way they say it did. And then documentaries and other voices will eventually reach the point of the ‘hundredth monkey, and they’ll have no where to run.

    it is the obvious solution to our existential dilemma

    just point out the obvious truth!

    sure, they’ll be people who will violently oppose the truth, because of what’s at stake. But it is exactly because of what’s at stake that we should all demand a new investigation and start just speaking the obvious about their lies

    it’s the pall over those central lies about 911 that prevent people from speaking about the subsequent lies like Saddam’s WMDs or the Benghazi movie or all the avalanche of lies, because we all know that we not even allowed to talk openly about the central and fundamental lie of 911 that started it all

    A direct consequence of 911? Pish. It's a direct consequence of Reagan's sale of the USA to the rich, particularly the dual-passport rich. Reagan's tax-redistribution and intensive military funding effectively ended the effects of taxation on the rich, and turned loose a firehose of wealth into the coffers of the 1%.

    Sure, it accelerated with 911 -- 911 was a brilliant move by a not-fully-recognized gang of traitors gathered together by the Bush cabal. (A fact made clear by Saudi immunity -- Saudis being long-time bank-rollers of Bushian treason.)

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America's Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

    “America the warlike predatory capitalist operating with little interference or input from the citizenry might be considered a virtual definition of deep state.”

    A deep state has no allegiance but to power & money. Its existence depends on a mature security apparatus that works exclusively for the benefits of Deep State. Leaders of Deep State are not encumbered by loyalty, principles, dignity, and other humanistic stuff… Deep State is a manifestation of victorious psychopathy, which means no empathy, no responsibility, and the all-encompassing, parasitoid mentality.
    By a historical accident, the US has also become a host for parasitic Zionists that use the vast resources and current position of the US to advance Eretz Israel. In the process of using the plump host, the ziocons have been finishing once and for all with the heavily-promoted picture of always-victimized Jews; instead the humankind has been learning that the murderous reptilian proclivities emerge in Jewish people with the same extreme intensity as in any other ethnic/religious group.
    Implementation of Oded Yinon plan – the destruction of Iraq, Syria, and Libya – makes moral ruin of Holocaust museums.
    Hanna Arendt was correct: humanity is dealing with the banality of evil.

    The critical question here is why does it work so effectively.

    What about the Native Americans? Was that a "zionist" instigated ethnic cleansing? Sure, by one interpretation of the word Zionist -- America as the promised Zion -- it was zionist. And sure, Jewish money interests benefited but so did the WASPs that ran the show. That the International Jews managed to outsmart the WASPS (or have they?) is neither here nor there. The machine was already well oiled and rolling.

    Or how about the glorious British Empire and their "banal" pursuit of loot regardless of the cost in human suffering? Has anyone put a head count on how many "brown" and "yellow" untermenchen the British dispatched to an early grave?

    Or the currently cowed, but previously quite assertive, Japanese and their brutal and violent episode in East Asia?

    Or the equally cowed, but previously quite assertive, ubermenchen of Deutschland?

    How about the Soviets and their not-so-pretty record of internal and external behavior?

    The Chinese? How many millions perished to pave the way for the current darling of globalism?

    Anyway, this list can go on and on ...

    Let's circle back to my first question: The dictionary says "banal" means common, unoriginal, etc.

    I would like to modify Herr Heidegger's protege's bon mot and proclaim that 'the banality of the biped engenders the banality of the evil that rules over it'. (Think about it.)

    And as for the current affairs, the author of this post ironically decorates his piece with a provincial caricature, correctly expecting to enjoy -- from his "balcony" -- the spectacle of the peanut gallery trading in racial, religious, and political blows.

    Sounds just like Professor Wolin's description of inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy. It's unfortunate, but historically most populations will tacitly accept wars waged by their elites, as long as they do not involve any personal loss or destruction. Since America is not credibly threatened by any of the many countries that are being bombed or where covert operations, proxies, contractors and actual troops are fighting, there is no perceived downside that is sufficient to generate effective opposition, just the gradual attrition of the productive economy, militarization towards a garrison state with its concomitant loss of freedom, replaced by libertinism and licentiousness as degraded substitutes. Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, worsens all the democratically unaccountable policies that require ever more resources of the same pernicious sort to try to sustain.

    “…the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, worsens all the democratically unaccountable policies that require ever more resources of the same pernicious sort to try to sustain.”

    Brutal awakening? Nah -- the awakening, if it happens at all, will be a sort of dull recognition of how it all happened, from somewhere in the depths of feudal toil. Sometimes I wonder if the oligarchs will actually find it amusing to put Americans into the harvested wheat fields to glean a daily porridge.

    the fiction that America is threatened and that Washington has a right to intervene preemptively anywhere in the world at any time. Unpopular and unconstitutional wars continue in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq while the American president routinely claims the meaningless title “leader of the free world” even as he threatens countries that do not adhere to norms dictated by Washington. In the case of Russia, some American leaders actually believe a potentially nuclear war can be won and should be considered while at least one general has taken steps to bring about such a conflict.

    Meanwhile both targeted citizens and often innocent foreigners who fit profiles are assassinated by drones without any legal process or framework. Lying to start a war as well as the war crimes committed by U.S. troops and contractors on far flung battlefields including torture and rendition are rarely investigated and punishment of any kind is so rare as to be remarkable when it does occur.

    George H W Bush was one of the speakers at the Jerusalem Conference, convened by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father, Benzion, in July 1979, to discuss international terrorism. The Conference was conducted under the auspices of the "Jonathan Institute," named for Benjamin's older brother who died in the IDF raid on Entebbe.

    Benjamin edited a book on the conference, International Terrorism: Challenge and Response.

    imo that Conference, and that book, lay out the blueprint for the global war on terror. In Benzion's opening speech, Yasser Arafat and PLO were named as the target of the war on terror that the "free world" was enjoined to engage. (The Iranian revolution had not yet fully erupted).

    Major college libraries in the DC area, as well as the Library of Congress, hold copies of the book. Check the WorldCat website www.worldcat.org, for availability at a library near you.

    As US cities decay...
     
    A must see for every American is the documentary Detroit on Fire, a look at the arson/vacant home problem in Detroit through the eyes of the Detroit Fire Department.

    https://youtu.be/pDoUpXNmcZA


    The newly appointed fire department chief is told to make do with a paltry budget in trying to fight all the fires. We learn that because of these budget constraints, Detroit has insufficient funds to repair, let alone purchase new, fire trucks. As a result, the FD didn't have a functioning fire truck to put out a fire that consumed the life of a little 3-yr old girl.

    Here's how one American reacted, by posting the following comment in the comments section of YouTube:

    We have no money for this, we have no money for that. And this, by a long way, is the richest country in the world? what the f*ck is going on????
     
    As Mark rightly points out, because of how the media "filters the information and shapes the narrative," few Americans can connect the dots. Few realize that the little 3-yr old girl perished because there is no money to repair/purchase fire trucks because all the money (trillions of dollars) is being spent to enhance the security of the people living in the villa in the jungle, while 45 million Americans rely on food stamps, 1 million about to lose them. That's one in seven Americans that still depend on food stamps (Bloomberg News.Feb 4, 2016).

    Can you imagine how the trillions of dollars spent on securing Israel could be put to use in America to revitalize their schools, hospitals, and infrastructure? Instead, because of the influence of The Lobby, these vast sums of money are being redirected to fight the bogus war on terror (aka War on Islam), a front to remake MENA by regime changing those countries deemed hostile to the Zionist project, all in an effort to protect the people residing in the villa in the jungle, not those residing in America, whose villa is slowly but surely being transformed into a veritable jungle.

    Hey Geokat62, good to see you.

    Good to see that someone from Up There is aware of how the distortions of foreign policy are negatively impacting lives and property Down Here. Detroit is not the only city that is a mess. I thought to save the cost of tolls and instead drove through the heart of Baltimore city, and it’s tragic. (It also took about 90 minutes rather than the 10 min. toll road route).

    I wanted to see when you last commented and noticed, to my embarrassment, that in late August you responded to my comment that disparaged Greek culture –

    http://www.unz.com/article/jewish-fear-and-loathing-of-donald-trump/#comment-1548686

    I don’t remember much from high school but I do remember being enthralled with “the Golden Age of Greece,” with Pericles. I recall reading The Allegory of the Cave — didn’t fully understand it, but it’s stayed with me and matured.
    In short, I am profoundly sorry for my wise-acre comment about the deplorable state of Greek civilization, not least because revitalized access to the Greeks gave rise to the flowering of the Italian Renaissance and my hero, Machiavelli.

    In that comment you also called me to account for my hyperbolic assertions regarding Yossi Alpher, and what I claimed were his (sob) statements that Israelis pine to be like Iran, to be linked to the ancient Persian empire.

    Here is an extended quote from which I distilled that notion:

    BRUCE REIDEL set the context and asked:

    It seems to me the centerpiece of the [periphery] strategy was Iran, and one of the things you lay out in the book is that even when the revolution comes in 1978, and the events that follow from it, desire to get back to the good old days was so strong. Can you give us a sense of — I call it, and I think you call it – the periphery nostalgia that lingered on, which, you know, in this town
    now, all we ever hear from Israelis is that Iran is the source of all evil, but if you go back 30 years you would have been told, no, Iran is the source of all wisdom and the partner that we really need.

    ALPHER responded:

    I call it periphery nostalgia, because it still exists. There are still very senior Israelis — and I have a long list of quotes from people like Ehud Barak, Uri Lubrani, those of you who know him, people are still around who were very active in the relationship before the Shah fell and who, indeed, believe to this day that the Islamic Republic is an aberration and a temporary one, and if you somehow push the right military or sanctions button or whatever, they will fall and the good guys will come back to power. [imo this is a very important insight -S2C]

    Now, here I have to go back a little bit to explain how we related, particularly to Iran, Turkey, and Ethiopia, which were, indeed, the pillars of the periphery in the ‘50s and ‘60s and ‘70s.

    We Israelis, again, back to that isolation – we Israelis, to this day, have a need to — a deep need to be recognized and accepted by the region. You see, Bibi’s demand, which is supported by most Israelis, that the Palestinians recognize us as a Jewish state, or the state of the Jewish people — the nation-state of the Jewish people — this goes way back, this need to be recognized. It explains our relationships with some of the Christian and Kurdish and Druze minorities as well, and so at the height of the periphery doctrine, when things are going well, there’s this sense that the ancient peoples of the Middle East have created an alliance, the people who precede the Arabs, okay. We go back with Iran, we just celebrated Purim, all right, we go back 2,600 years with Iran. The Egyptian, the Ethiopian national narrative is King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. So, this is almost a biblical — a new biblical chapter.
    This is how some people in Israel felt.

    There were also some people who were just cynical,practitioners of realpolitik. Everybody in Tehran and in Addis and in Ankara were cynical practitioners of realpolitik. They did not reciprocate. They said, we kidded ourselves that they did.

    And we still do to this day, because if you believe that this is — we are somehow Middle Eastern, ancient blood brothers, then who’s Khomeini? This wasn’t meant to be.

    And so the Shah falls, and there are all kinds of Iranians going around making contacts, and if you just give us this, that, and the other, we’ll get rid of these guys and go back to the good old days.

    You cited Rabbi Ken Spiro (not one of my favorites, but a useful source for information) as he traced the linkages between Jewish culture and Greek wisdom.
    If I’m not mistaken, those connections emerged only in later pre-Christian and the earliest Christian times. The Jewish relationship with Persia goes back to the time of Cyrus, as Alpher implies when he made reference to Purim (although why he would think that supplanting the Persian queen and foreign minister, suborning the king, and killing the foreign minister, his sons, and 70,000 Persians would endear Yehud to the Persian royal line let alone make them “blood brothers” escapes me).
    Jews relied on Persian support in a very bloody assault on Roman Jerusalem in about 600 AD (iirc), and as Alpher reflected, Zionist Israel relied heavily upon, and was intricately embedded in, the Shah’s government. In “The Thirty Years’ War,” Ronen Bergman details how destabilized Israelis were when the Shah’s government fell; Israelis responded by stealing what they could from Iran, and ” ‘sell-sell-selling’ millions of dollars worth of inferior weapons to Iran in their war with Iraq, to generate revenue and to watch them kill each other.”

    I admit that my commentary on Alpher’s statements was wildly exaggerated: I don’t have a $38 billion budget or the ability to demonize Iran in three negative comments per day in a Yahoo news feed, so I shout and scream and set what’s left of my hair on fire. I do believe that my comment was substantially accurate in its essence; and that it provides important insights into the Israeli psyche as it informs Israeli strategy.

    Since this comment is reaching back to an old topic, I won’t disrupt Phil’s excellent article further.

    Just wanted to say Hey, and clear the record. I believe, and you should remain aware, that your contributions to this forum are valued.

    well, while I agree that Reagan did sell out the working class to the banksters with his deregulation and subsequent S&L mass looting of the Treasury.. if you want to really go back to where it all started in earnest, Mr. Giraldi correctly points out here where it all began:

    some believe its infrastructure was actually put in place through the passage of the Federal Reserve Act prior to the First World War. Several years after signing the bill, Woodrow Wilson reportedly lamented “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
     
    I'm one of the people he's referring to who believes this very much indeed.

    But nevertheless, it is the ones still holding the smoking gun of 911 who are the globe's current psychopaths and murderers. If we could manage to create such a firestorm of outrage that they're too scared to show their face, let alone keep waging all these 911-based wars, then we could potentially save the world from it's dystopian, Orwellian trajectory. No?

    whether its Saudis or Israelis or Americans or a combination of all three or more. We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can't continue their Satanic agenda.

    Soros still shows his ugly face around town. He needs to be so openly reviled that he won't set foot on honest soil. Let him and the rest of them rot in the shadows of their own oubliette. If they come out of hiding, we'll have protests and interrupt their speaking engagements with howls of 'war criminal!'. We can demand a sort of international inquiry from the grass roots. Putin and Farage and Le Pen and Trump and all the new comers might just be willing to entertain such a notion. Or at least tolerate a privately organized one.

    Brutal awakening? Nah — the awakening, if it happens at all, will be a sort of dull recognition of how it all happened, from somewhere in the depths of feudal toil. Sometimes I wonder if the oligarchs will actually find it amusing to put Americans into the harvested wheat fields to glean a daily porridge.

    The banksters will still be sitting pretty, Anna, I can assure of that. As always, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

    There is an emerging discontent among the Deep State deciders, which shows, for example, in the peculiarities of arming the antagonistic jihadi fractions that even involve US military personal (opposite each other). It is quite possible that some intelligent psychopaths-in-charge have fear for their lives in case of nuclear winter, wheres the less educated (or too opportunistic to allow themselves any thinking) look for the immediate reward from war making, everything else be damned.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America's Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

    Israeli / Zionist / supremacist Jew power is enabled by the fraudulent & laughable story line of ’6,000,000 Jews & gas chambers’.

    This is the thing. We all know that every single bit of what Mr. Giraldi is writing about here is all a direct consequence of 911. All of it. And we know (or at least I suspect most of us know) that 911 was an easily proven and by now well-demonstrated false flag.
     
    A direct consequence of 911? Pish. It's a direct consequence of Reagan's sale of the USA to the rich, particularly the dual-passport rich. Reagan's tax-redistribution and intensive military funding effectively ended the effects of taxation on the rich, and turned loose a firehose of wealth into the coffers of the 1%.

    Sure, it accelerated with 911 -- 911 was a brilliant move by a not-fully-recognized gang of traitors gathered together by the Bush cabal. (A fact made clear by Saudi immunity -- Saudis being long-time bank-rollers of Bushian treason.)

    Pish. It’s a direct consequence of Reagan’s sale of the USA

    well, while I agree that Reagan did sell out the working class to the banksters with his deregulation and subsequent S&L mass looting of the Treasury.. if you want to really go back to where it all started in earnest, Mr. Giraldi correctly points out here where it all began:

    some believe its infrastructure was actually put in place through the passage of the Federal Reserve Act prior to the First World War. Several years after signing the bill, Woodrow Wilson reportedly lamented “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

    I’m one of the people he’s referring to who believes this very much indeed.

    But nevertheless, it is the ones still holding the smoking gun of 911 who are the globe’s current psychopaths and murderers. If we could manage to create such a firestorm of outrage that they’re too scared to show their face, let alone keep waging all these 911-based wars, then we could potentially save the world from it’s dystopian, Orwellian trajectory. No?

    whether its Saudis or Israelis or Americans or a combination of all three or more. We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda.

    Soros still shows his ugly face around town. He needs to be so openly reviled that he won’t set foot on honest soil. Let him and the rest of them rot in the shadows of their own oubliette. If they come out of hiding, we’ll have protests and interrupt their speaking engagements with howls of ‘war criminal!’. We can demand a sort of international inquiry from the grass roots. Putin and Farage and Le Pen and Trump and all the new comers might just be willing to entertain such a notion. Or at least tolerate a privately organized one.

    (but if Hillary gets in, it’s all she wrote. Pack your bags)

    I'll grant that the creation of the Federal Reserve enabled and provisioned the subsequent trek to neofeudalism, but the existence of a federal reserve is not per se fatal. It has its constructive uses, and, had it been done right, could be held harmless. But, yup, too effing late now.

    Nope, not a chance. I was vacillating a bit on this topic -- possibly holding out some of my characteristic, forlornly optimistic, cynically-expressed hope -- but I am back to believing that only an ultimate state of revolution can achieve any portion of new beginning, although I suppose anything we might call a "new beginning" is not "new", but more like another try.

    The USS Liberty "incident" is what leads me to throw in the towel on constructive solutions. 99% of the truth is known, and acknowledged, yet 99% of the American electorate is ignorant of the event, through the simple, consistent suppression of the story. Hell, in '69, I knew an ET1 who crewed on the Liberty, and he would NOT say a word about it.

    So, there's no suppression of 911 conspiracy talk. None. I assume that the facts of what happened must, therefore, be absolutely and effectively covered up, no recourse available. All that's left is for this treasonous government we fund to continue to be officially amused about wackadoodle conspiracy theories. Which they do, with the consummate ease of long practice.

    Hi, Rurik!

    You wrote: "We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda."

    We have been demanding a new and thorough investigation into 9/11...that's what the 9/11 truth movement is all about! Therefore, you must be implying something else...a stronger action to be taken. What, pray tell, would that stronger action be? What would it look like? Who is strong enough to lead this new, stronger push? Please, don't tell me you're pinning all your hopes on Trump...'cause that ain't gonna happen. Hillary will be "our" next president, not the Donald. Even if he were to become POTUS he would be schooled on how the NWO actually works...if he presses his luck too far, they'll just reach out and squash him like a bug, and blame it on a Mexican patsy.

    As for forcing "the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda.", my answer is this: The International Jew (I'm talking about the Rothschild banking clan, amongst others) has been working nonstop on their NWO project for the past 235, at least, maybe longer. They have poured Trillions of dollars into it's construction, and have quietly, and systematically, crushed all opposition to it. How many millions of people have they slaughtered to impose their global rule? How many thousands of politicians and corporate executives have they murdered, blackmailed, intimidated, or bribed over the passed two centuries? You don't seriously think that they'll just give all that up and say "OK, you win, we'll quit being evil." do you? No possible way that will ever happen...they will slaughter 5 billion people if they have to, but their rule of this planet will continue, no matter what may come. In other words, they will continue building and implementing their NWO until we physically stop them from doing so.

    There are tons of people TALKING about the evil crimes of the NWO, and how we need to stop them, but no one (that I'm aware of) is willing to actually DO something about it. Talk is one thing, organizing to resist them is something totally different. You can talk and protest all you want, but nothing will change...they can just ignore you, then what?

    The only way to stop them is through a bloody revolution, first in the US, then in Europe, then on into the rest of the nations of this world...who would lead such a massive effort, Trump? Who would be the brave revolutionaries to fight in this righteous struggle? Millennials?

    Re: 9/11

    See George H. W. Bush is backing Hillary.

    Makes sense in terms of 9/11. The project was probably conceived under G.H.W. (ex-CIA Director) Bush, the the first attempt was the botched WTC bombing under Bill Clinton, with mission accomplished under G. Dubya Bush. Now the cover-up is wearing thin, another complicit Clinton is needed to ensure the lid stays on.

    George H W Bush was one of the speakers at the Jerusalem Conference, convened by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father, Benzion, in July 1979, to discuss international terrorism. The Conference was conducted under the auspices of the “Jonathan Institute,” named for Benjamin’s older brother who died in the IDF raid on Entebbe.

    Benjamin edited a book on the conference, International Terrorism: Challenge and Response.

    imo that Conference, and that book, lay out the blueprint for the global war on terror. In Benzion’s opening speech, Yasser Arafat and PLO were named as the target of the war on terror that the “free world” was enjoined to engage. (The Iranian revolution had not yet fully erupted).

    Major college libraries in the DC area, as well as the Library of Congress, hold copies of the book. Check the WorldCat website http://www.worldcat.org, for availability at a library near you.

    As US cities decay...
     
    A must see for every American is the documentary Detroit on Fire, a look at the arson/vacant home problem in Detroit through the eyes of the Detroit Fire Department.

    https://youtu.be/pDoUpXNmcZA


    The newly appointed fire department chief is told to make do with a paltry budget in trying to fight all the fires. We learn that because of these budget constraints, Detroit has insufficient funds to repair, let alone purchase new, fire trucks. As a result, the FD didn't have a functioning fire truck to put out a fire that consumed the life of a little 3-yr old girl.

    Here's how one American reacted, by posting the following comment in the comments section of YouTube:

    We have no money for this, we have no money for that. And this, by a long way, is the richest country in the world? what the f*ck is going on????
     
    As Mark rightly points out, because of how the media "filters the information and shapes the narrative," few Americans can connect the dots. Few realize that the little 3-yr old girl perished because there is no money to repair/purchase fire trucks because all the money (trillions of dollars) is being spent to enhance the security of the people living in the villa in the jungle, while 45 million Americans rely on food stamps, 1 million about to lose them. That's one in seven Americans that still depend on food stamps (Bloomberg News.Feb 4, 2016).

    Can you imagine how the trillions of dollars spent on securing Israel could be put to use in America to revitalize their schools, hospitals, and infrastructure? Instead, because of the influence of The Lobby, these vast sums of money are being redirected to fight the bogus war on terror (aka War on Islam), a front to remake MENA by regime changing those countries deemed hostile to the Zionist project, all in an effort to protect the people residing in the villa in the jungle, not those residing in America, whose villa is slowly but surely being transformed into a veritable jungle.

    Hamilton, ON
    Sunday, September 18, 2016

    Please see attached and below:

    OPEN LETTER RE: “THE WHITE HELMETS”

    To the Federal Caucus of the New Democratic Party

    Dear Members of Parliament:

    It is with great disappointment and regret that we find ourselves calling into question your unanimous caucus decision1, announced by MP Nathan Cullen, to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization in Syria for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016. After all, as an anti-war organization formed to oppose the Anglo-American attack on Iraq in 2003, our Coalition was founded in part by NDP members in the greater Hamilton/Burlington area and one NDP riding association in Hamilton. Many of our present executive and rank-and-file members either belong to and/or support the NDP.

    In making his announcement, Cullen called the White Helmets “incredible civilians”, “connected to peace”, “the best of humanity”, “saving lives…in the midst of terror.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth.

    The White Helmets organization was founded by James LeMesurier, a British army officer formerly connected to the notorious Blackwater mercenary organization. The White Helmets describe themselves as “fiercely independent.” However, they are actually well-funded by the same governments who are waging the current aggression against Syria. In the past 2.5 years, they received £19.7m. from the British government and $23m. from the US government. Millions more dollars in cash, equipment, and training were contributed by various European NATO countries (including $4.5m. from the Netherlands).2 Would the caucus members agree that these amply-documented facts prove the White Helmets are NOT fiercely independent?

    The White Helmets operate only in terrorist-controlled areas of Syria. The organization is, in fact, deeply embedded in the Nusra (Al Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria) and ISIS terrorist networks.

    Is Mr. Cullen and the caucus unaware that the White Helmet leader, Raed Saleh, was refused entry to the USA and deported from Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, on March 29, 2016, because immigration officials found that he had “terrorist connections.”3 Saleh has repeatedly called for a no-fly zone over Syria, the same tactic used by NATO in 2011 to bomb Libya into a failed state.

    The White Helmets are first-responder poseurs. The REAL Syria Civil Defence was established in Syria in 1953 and was a founding member of the ICDO [International Civil Defence Org.] which is recognised by the United Nations. The White Helmets were only formed in 2013 by the UK, Turkey, and the US as part of their neocolonialist program in Syria. The White Helmets are not members of the ICDO.

    In short, contrary to Mr. Cullen’s statement to the CBC, the White Helmets are not civilians. And they are not “connected to peace.” In fact, they were recruited as part of the illegal regime change operation in Syria responsible for nearly half a million deaths, 11 million displaced persons, and the widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure. They are part of the reason that over 25,000 Syrian refugees have had to look to Canada for resettlement. And, being embedded directly in Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise hardly qualifies them to be “the best of humanity.”

    To his credit, party leader Tom Mulcair argued on March 20, 2015, in the House of Commons against expanding the Canadian military mission in the Middle East to include the bombing of Syria:

    Canada does not have the legal grounds to conduct airstrikes in Syria.

    ‘But our friends are doing it’ is simply not a defence. That sort of childish reasoning is more suitable to the schoolyard than it is to the House of Commons and the Prime Minister should know better.

    The fact is, what this government is proposing will put our Canadian Forces in the dubious position of acting outside of international law.

    New Democrats will not stand for it. 4

    The White Helmets call for a no-fly zone over Syria, a policy much-favoured by the Pentagon, but completely at odds with the view (expressed above) of the NDP leadership in the House of Commons. For this reason, the NDP should also not stand in support of the White Helmets.

    We note that your decision to support the White Helmets was taken unilaterally at a closed caucus retreat held several days ago in Montebello, Quebec. This matter was NOT raised at the NDP policy conference in Edmonton only a few months ago in April 2016. In fact, at that conference, party leaders prevented a wide-ranging discussion of the Syrian and Palestinian conflicts from taking place, as well as the $15 b. Canadian sale of arms to Saudi Arabia. A resolution, endorsed by several riding associations, for the party to engage in a wide-ranging foreign policy review was likewise prevented from even coming to the convention floor.

    We would like to emphasize that the humanitarian tragedy in Syria has gone on for far too long: five and a half years. The White Helmet organization does NOT seek to end the tragedy. Instead, it’s part of the propaganda apparatus of the same western governments (which included the Harper government of Canada) that were responsible for causing the tragedy in the first place. They use the White Helmets organization to promote further violence and bloodshed against the Syrian people, up to and including a full-scale and direct western military intervention in Syria.

    Judging by Cullen’s statement, it’s obvious that the caucus did not consider the partisan and fraudulent nature of the White Helmets. We urge you, then, to reverse your decision to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization for the Nobel Peace Prize. Further, our anti-war Coalition urges you to lobby for an end to Canadian economic sanctions against Syria and for a resumption of normal diplomatic relations with the government of Syria. We also hope that you will call for an end to Canada’s participation of the so-called “Friends of Syria” Group of Countries, which was put together in 2012, partly with the help of the Harper government, to wage a proxy war, using terrorist mercenaries, against the Government of Syria. And, we expect that the NDP in Parliament will continue to oppose the participation of the Trudeau government in the US-led coalition in Syria and Iraq.

    Thank you for your consideration of this very important matter.

    Yours truly,

    Doug Brown

    The phrase “deep state” originated in and was often applied to Turkey… where the nation’s security services and governing elite traditionally pursued the same chauvinistic and inward-looking agenda both domestically and in foreign affairs no matter who was prime minister.

    … deep state activities … are frequently conducted through connivance with politicians who are able to provide cover for the activity …

    There seems a contradiction here. If the deep state operates independently of the prime minister, how can it have cover from politicians. Only if there is a weak prime minister, presumably.

    It seems more likely that the politicians, meaning in effect the prime ministers or heads of government, instigate or tolerate illegal action by the security services and police when such action serves their political objectives.

    Examples that come to mind are reliance by the Rooseveldt Government on the Mafia for security in the New York dockyards during WW2, or the reliance by right-wing politicians in Europe on the Gladio network to suppress Communist influence in Italy and elsewhere.

    Presumably the same arrangement, providing the political leadership with deniability in the event the perpetrators are identified, applied in the case of some or all terrorist attacks in the US, e.g., the first and second WTC attacks (under Clinton and Bush, respectively), and the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing (under Clinton), etc.

    What would be interesting to know is whether there are significant deep state forces in the US today that are not subject to government direction and control. Propelling Donald Trump to a position of power, perhaps. That would certainly explain the ongoing Republicrat coagulation, with Shrubs and Bushes now joining with the Clintons and Obamas to defeat the Republican presidential nominee.

    It would also be interesting to know more of competing deep state groups, the Mormon Mafia, for example, the Jews for genocide of EuroAmerica, Hispanics to make America Mexico again, etc., and to understand how these groups are being used by the Obama administration.

    how many commenters here want to be kept in the dark? how many don’t wanna know what they don’t know? how many trust elites to work in their best interests? how many think they’re are too stupid to handle the truth?
    the author’s contempt for the american people is at the root of the elitist establishment.
    we, the people, are the world.

    There’s only two entities profiting from these endless ME wars, Israel and those ‘Too Big to Fail’ Wall Street casinos.
    Israel will add more land to create the Zionist dream of an Eretz Israel and the banks make a killing off loaning the money to build the weapons and to rebuild the shattered nations, not to mention the US Army guarding Afghanistan poppy fields, whose profits get laundered by the same banks.

    For Americans, it’s a lose-lose proposition any way you look at this carnage. Our sons and daughters get killed or horribly maimed, both physically and mentally, while our treasury gets drained supporting this nonsense.

    Badruddin Khan has drawn interesting parallels between the British colonization of India and what he calls the Israeli colonization of the United States--
    http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/09/07/has-israel-effectively-colonized-the-united-states/

    +how a small state, Britain, controlled a much larger and more populous state

    +how a small state but wealthy state demanded and received regular 'tribute' from the larger, resource-rich but actually impoverished larger state

    +using relatively few British overlords but rather putting Indian people in charge of enforcing British demands on Indian people

    +the small state, Britain, harvesting the advantage of the vast wealth generated by the superior resources and more abundant, but cheap, labor of the colonized state

    +the small state demanded and got the people of the large, subservient state to send their young men off to fight for the interests of the small state. The large state -- India (USA) accrued no benefits from the fight but in many cases endured terrific suffering

    +members of the colonized state may not criticize the colonizer state: in the USA (and other places) the slightest whiff of criticism is smacked down immediately and harshly

    +the colonizing state controls the communications networks, cultural preferences, and financial systems of the colonized state (Jews have controlled US media since at least WWII, and have controlled US central bank since a Jewish person was prominent in creating the Fed, in 1910 - 1913)

    Chilling

    Once you see how the USA is managed as a colonial enterprise by Israel, in the same way that India was colonized (and abused) by the British, it's like taking the red pill, like putting the glasses on: the entire perspective begins to make sense -- a terrible situation, for sure, but at least it's clear who is the enemy and who is the stooge, the victim, the patsy.

    then you can get properly mad and direct your rage in the right direction, devil take the hindmost.

    Greetings Geo.

    Hamilton, ON
    Sunday, September 18, 2016

    Please see attached and below:

    OPEN LETTER RE: “THE WHITE HELMETS”

    To the Federal Caucus of the New Democratic Party

    Dear Members of Parliament:

    It is with great disappointment and regret that we find ourselves calling into question your unanimous caucus decision1, announced by MP Nathan Cullen, to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization in Syria for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016. After all, as an anti-war organization formed to oppose the Anglo-American attack on Iraq in 2003, our Coalition was founded in part by NDP members in the greater Hamilton/Burlington area and one NDP riding association in Hamilton. Many of our present executive and rank-and-file members either belong to and/or support the NDP.

    In making his announcement, Cullen called the White Helmets “incredible civilians”, “connected to peace”, “the best of humanity”, “saving lives…in the midst of terror.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth.

    The White Helmets organization was founded by James LeMesurier, a British army officer formerly connected to the notorious Blackwater mercenary organization. The White Helmets describe themselves as “fiercely independent.” However, they are actually well-funded by the same governments who are waging the current aggression against Syria. In the past 2.5 years, they received £19.7m. from the British government and $23m. from the US government. Millions more dollars in cash, equipment, and training were contributed by various European NATO countries (including $4.5m. from the Netherlands).2 Would the caucus members agree that these amply-documented facts prove the White Helmets are NOT fiercely independent?

    The White Helmets operate only in terrorist-controlled areas of Syria. The organization is, in fact, deeply embedded in the Nusra (Al Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria) and ISIS terrorist networks.

    Is Mr. Cullen and the caucus unaware that the White Helmet leader, Raed Saleh, was refused entry to the USA and deported from Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, on March 29, 2016, because immigration officials found that he had “terrorist connections.”3 Saleh has repeatedly called for a no-fly zone over Syria, the same tactic used by NATO in 2011 to bomb Libya into a failed state.

    The White Helmets are first-responder poseurs. The REAL Syria Civil Defence was established in Syria in 1953 and was a founding member of the ICDO [International Civil Defence Org.] which is recognised by the United Nations. The White Helmets were only formed in 2013 by the UK, Turkey, and the US as part of their neocolonialist program in Syria. The White Helmets are not members of the ICDO.

    In short, contrary to Mr. Cullen’s statement to the CBC, the White Helmets are not civilians. And they are not “connected to peace.” In fact, they were recruited as part of the illegal regime change operation in Syria responsible for nearly half a million deaths, 11 million displaced persons, and the widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure. They are part of the reason that over 25,000 Syrian refugees have had to look to Canada for resettlement. And, being embedded directly in Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise hardly qualifies them to be “the best of humanity.”

    To his credit, party leader Tom Mulcair argued on March 20, 2015, in the House of Commons against expanding the Canadian military mission in the Middle East to include the bombing of Syria:

    Canada does not have the legal grounds to conduct airstrikes in Syria.

    ‘But our friends are doing it’ is simply not a defence. That sort of childish reasoning is more suitable to the schoolyard than it is to the House of Commons and the Prime Minister should know better.

    The fact is, what this government is proposing will put our Canadian Forces in the dubious position of acting outside of international law.

    New Democrats will not stand for it. 4

    The White Helmets call for a no-fly zone over Syria, a policy much-favoured by the Pentagon, but completely at odds with the view (expressed above) of the NDP leadership in the House of Commons. For this reason, the NDP should also not stand in support of the White Helmets.

    We note that your decision to support the White Helmets was taken unilaterally at a closed caucus retreat held several days ago in Montebello, Quebec. This matter was NOT raised at the NDP policy conference in Edmonton only a few months ago in April 2016. In fact, at that conference, party leaders prevented a wide-ranging discussion of the Syrian and Palestinian conflicts from taking place, as well as the $15 b. Canadian sale of arms to Saudi Arabia. A resolution, endorsed by several riding associations, for the party to engage in a wide-ranging foreign policy review was likewise prevented from even coming to the convention floor.

    We would like to emphasize that the humanitarian tragedy in Syria has gone on for far too long: five and a half years. The White Helmet organization does NOT seek to end the tragedy. Instead, it’s part of the propaganda apparatus of the same western governments (which included the Harper government of Canada) that were responsible for causing the tragedy in the first place. They use the White Helmets organization to promote further violence and bloodshed against the Syrian people, up to and including a full-scale and direct western military intervention in Syria.

    Judging by Cullen’s statement, it’s obvious that the caucus did not consider the partisan and fraudulent nature of the White Helmets. We urge you, then, to reverse your decision to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization for the Nobel Peace Prize. Further, our anti-war Coalition urges you to lobby for an end to Canadian economic sanctions against Syria and for a resumption of normal diplomatic relations with the government of Syria. We also hope that you will call for an end to Canada’s participation of the so-called “Friends of Syria” Group of Countries, which was put together in 2012, partly with the help of the Harper government, to wage a proxy war, using terrorist mercenaries, against the Government of Syria. And, we expect that the NDP in Parliament will continue to oppose the participation of the Trudeau government in the US-led coalition in Syria and Iraq.

    Thank you for your consideration of this very important matter.

    Yours truly,

    Doug Brown

    "...the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, worsens all the democratically unaccountable policies that require ever more resources of the same pernicious sort to try to sustain."
    So true.
    It is horrifying to think about the inevitable brutal awakening that is coming for the US populace. The only solace is that the warmongers & banksters, and their families, will not be able to escape the universal hardship manufactured by the main war-profiteers and financiers.

    Too optimistic Anna! One could keep wishing for such an outcome, I suppose. Not at all likely though.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America's Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

    Stating that nonsense of blanket America dumbness feeds the zionist meme of deplorables uttered by their Hell Bitch,HRC.
    Yes,the US public has been brainwashed by the leviathan zionist regime.
    And Donald Trump will end that.
    The attack on him by the zionists that he is against freedom of the of the press is hillaryous,as he just hates the freedom of the traitors to lie and divide US constantly,in a borglike hive wo one countervailing MSM news outlet.
    The goyim are gonna have some payback for the monsters.
    HRC doesn’t discount Russia being behind the NYC attacks.Holy Jesus Christ.Is this woman deranged or what?

    Pish. It’s a direct consequence of Reagan’s sale of the USA
     
    well, while I agree that Reagan did sell out the working class to the banksters with his deregulation and subsequent S&L mass looting of the Treasury.. if you want to really go back to where it all started in earnest, Mr. Giraldi correctly points out here where it all began:

    some believe its infrastructure was actually put in place through the passage of the Federal Reserve Act prior to the First World War. Several years after signing the bill, Woodrow Wilson reportedly lamented “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
     
    I'm one of the people he's referring to who believes this very much indeed.

    But nevertheless, it is the ones still holding the smoking gun of 911 who are the globe's current psychopaths and murderers. If we could manage to create such a firestorm of outrage that they're too scared to show their face, let alone keep waging all these 911-based wars, then we could potentially save the world from it's dystopian, Orwellian trajectory. No?

    whether its Saudis or Israelis or Americans or a combination of all three or more. We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can't continue their Satanic agenda.

    Soros still shows his ugly face around town. He needs to be so openly reviled that he won't set foot on honest soil. Let him and the rest of them rot in the shadows of their own oubliette. If they come out of hiding, we'll have protests and interrupt their speaking engagements with howls of 'war criminal!'. We can demand a sort of international inquiry from the grass roots. Putin and Farage and Le Pen and Trump and all the new comers might just be willing to entertain such a notion. Or at least tolerate a privately organized one.

    (but if Hillary gets in, it's all she wrote. Pack your bags)

    I’ll grant that the creation of the Federal Reserve enabled and provisioned the subsequent trek to neofeudalism, but the existence of a federal reserve is not per se fatal. It has its constructive uses, and, had it been done right, could be held harmless. But, yup, too effing late now.

    But nevertheless, it is the ones still holding the smoking gun of 911 who are the globe’s current psychopaths and murderers. If we could manage to create such a firestorm of outrage that they’re too scared to show their face, let alone keep waging all these 911-based wars, then we could potentially save the world from it’s dystopian, Orwellian trajectory. No?

    Nope, not a chance. I was vacillating a bit on this topic — possibly holding out some of my characteristic, forlornly optimistic, cynically-expressed hope — but I am back to believing that only an ultimate state of revolution can achieve any portion of new beginning, although I suppose anything we might call a “new beginning” is not “new”, but more like another try.

    The USS Liberty “incident” is what leads me to throw in the towel on constructive solutions. 99% of the truth is known, and acknowledged, yet 99% of the American electorate is ignorant of the event, through the simple, consistent suppression of the story. Hell, in ’69, I knew an ET1 who crewed on the Liberty, and he would NOT say a word about it.

    So, there’s no suppression of 911 conspiracy talk. None. I assume that the facts of what happened must, therefore, be absolutely and effectively covered up, no recourse available. All that’s left is for this treasonous government we fund to continue to be officially amused about wackadoodle conspiracy theories. Which they do, with the consummate ease of long practice.

    Sounds just like Professor Wolin's description of inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy. It's unfortunate, but historically most populations will tacitly accept wars waged by their elites, as long as they do not involve any personal loss or destruction. Since America is not credibly threatened by any of the many countries that are being bombed or where covert operations, proxies, contractors and actual troops are fighting, there is no perceived downside that is sufficient to generate effective opposition, just the gradual attrition of the productive economy, militarization towards a garrison state with its concomitant loss of freedom, replaced by libertinism and licentiousness as degraded substitutes. Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, worsens all the democratically unaccountable policies that require ever more resources of the same pernicious sort to try to sustain.

    Maan - you really have your brain hanging between your legs. Badruddin Khan was trying to tell you that like the Brits, the Jews too will be kicked out of Palestine eventually.

    Henry Kissinger, the mass-killer Zionist Jews, on the other hand believes that the Zionist entity has only TEN YEARS TO SURVIVE.

    On September 17, 2012, Cindy Adams in her column at the New York Post, quoted Henry Kissinger predicting that if the current isolation of the Zionist entity continues – the Zionist entity will be gone within next 10 years.

    “Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated – and I quote the statement word for word: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel”. I repeat: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel”, wrote Cindy Adams.

    “Do not argue with Mr. Kissinger’s know-how. He already knows how,” added Adams to emphasized her point.

    Consider for a moment how Washington operates. There is gridlock in Congress and the legislature opposes nearly everything that the White House supports. Nevertheless, certain things happen seemingly without any discussion, including the bipartisan, unconstitutional and extremely dangerous assumption of increased executive authority by the White House.

    This statement contains a very penetrating insight, it’s a bit like the astronomer who posited the existence of Pluto from the irregular orbits of Neptune and Uranus due to the gravitational pull of a large unseen object. A phantom, 4th branch of government, the one with the most power, must exist in order to coordinate executive and legislative branches in a manner that would otherwise seem incomprehensible to the unaided eye.

    No one of any note has thought to point this out even though for decades analysts constantly bemoan “gridlock.” We here it all the time. The fact that no one connects the dots means that most analysts aren’t that insightful to begin with or they are carefully skirting around the issue by pretending not to understand it.

    I guess it just boils down to legitimacy and authority. Congressmen don’t have much of the former and therefore cannot exercise the latter. However, the members of the phantom branch are hidden away from public scrutiny and so the only legitimating force they require is tons of money, which they have. It’s a stable system and a perfect system (for them). This suggests a couple of mechanisms at work which help to create the political gravity we see: Obviously there are large campaign contributions. However, these are often times traceable. Something not so traceable is a devious form of “Pay to Play.” Just imagine how many congressmen have been compromised in some way. They have to surrender their principles and morality. They are probably spied upon, offered sex from a hooker, cajoled into doing drugs, whatever it would take to humiliate them to their friends, family and community should their secret ever get out. They can be humiliated by false accusations of racism or whatever as well.

    And so the Deep State has a great deal of gravity.

    No one has pointed this out, or connected the dots, recently, but in the mid-1950s Dick Cheney's favorite professor at Yale, H Bradford Westerfield, recognized and described how Zionists put their organizational energy and wealth to use; exploited the quirks of the US electoral system to control national elections by dominating only a few key states; and operated without opposition of sufficient heft or energy or invulnerability.

    Foreign Policy and Party Politics: Pearl Harbor to Korea by H Bradford Westerfield

    Westerfield also studied and published on US foreign policy The Instruments of America's Foreign Policy, and on the CIA Inside CIA's Private World: Declassified Articles from the Agencys Internal Journal, 1955-1992 .

    Westerfield died in 2008 http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/27/education/27westerfield.html?_r=0 but not before disavowing Cheney's interpretations and applications of what he said he learned from Westerfield.

    I don't think the powers that be wait till a congress person is elected I believe politicians are spotted, targeted and recruited at an early age, perhaps college or law school.

    They are helped along from small town school board to state assembly to congress and maybe the senate and Oh joy of joys! a crack at cabinet secretary or president.

    So they are really miles from age 25 or earlier. Look at Obama. He was actually the product of a breeding program begun in the 1930s. The marriages of communist women and black men, any old black man available would produce the perfect frontman for President

    Clinton was similar except he was spotted by his uncle Ray Clinton a very wealthy businessman who was the money and power behind many Arkansas politicians Hildabeast was in Time magazine at age 22 for her college graduation speech advocating revolution.

    Does that mean that the system will eventually self-destruct?

    Is that what happened to Weimar?

    Weimar (Germany) was a much small operation.

    Will USA fragment, with states that manage to remain prosperous and more-or-less self-governing, or states having a sound central/state government, breaking off from the corrupted whole?

They are probably spied upon, offered sex from a hooker, cajoled into doing drugs, whatever it would take to humiliate them to their friends, family and community should their secret ever get out. They can be humiliated by false accusations of racism or whatever as well.

    And so the Deep State has a great deal of gravity.

    No one of any note has thought to point this out even though for decades analysts constantly bemoan “gridlock.” We here it all the time. The fact that no one connects the dots means that most analysts aren’t that insightful to begin with or they are carefully skirting around the issue by pretending not to understand it.

    No one has pointed this out, or connected the dots, recently, but in the mid-1950s Dick Cheney’s favorite professor at Yale, H Bradford Westerfield, recognized and described how Zionists put their organizational energy and wealth to use; exploited the quirks of the US electoral system to control national elections by dominating only a few key states; and operated without opposition of sufficient heft or energy or invulnerability.

    Foreign Policy and Party Politics: Pearl Harbor to Korea by H Bradford Westerfield

    Westerfield also studied and published on US foreign policy The Instruments of America’s Foreign Policy, and on the CIA Inside CIA’s Private World: Declassified Articles from the Agencys Internal Journal, 1955-1992 .

    Westerfield died in 2008 http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/27/education/27westerfield.html?_r=0 but not before disavowing Cheney’s interpretations and applications of what he said he learned from Westerfield.

    George H W Bush was one of the speakers at the Jerusalem Conference, convened by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father, Benzion, in July 1979, to discuss international terrorism. The Conference was conducted under the auspices of the "Jonathan Institute," named for Benjamin's older brother who died in the IDF raid on Entebbe.

    Benjamin edited a book on the conference, International Terrorism: Challenge and Response.

    imo that Conference, and that book, lay out the blueprint for the global war on terror. In Benzion's opening speech, Yasser Arafat and PLO were named as the target of the war on terror that the "free world" was enjoined to engage. (The Iranian revolution had not yet fully erupted).

    Major college libraries in the DC area, as well as the Library of Congress, hold copies of the book. Check the WorldCat website www.worldcat.org, for availability at a library near you.

    Nov 24, 2015 The Deep State: The Unelected Shadow Government

    America’s next president will inherit more than a bitterly divided nation. He or she will also inherit a shadow government—a permanent, corporatized, militarized, entrenched bureaucracy that is fully operational and staffed by unelected officials who are, in essence, running the country. As John W. Whitehead warns in this week’s vodcast, all it will take is another terrorist attack or a natural disaster for such a regime to emerge from the shadows.

    Pish. It’s a direct consequence of Reagan’s sale of the USA
     
    well, while I agree that Reagan did sell out the working class to the banksters with his deregulation and subsequent S&L mass looting of the Treasury.. if you want to really go back to where it all started in earnest, Mr. Giraldi correctly points out here where it all began:

    some believe its infrastructure was actually put in place through the passage of the Federal Reserve Act prior to the First World War. Several years after signing the bill, Woodrow Wilson reportedly lamented “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
     
    I'm one of the people he's referring to who believes this very much indeed.

    But nevertheless, it is the ones still holding the smoking gun of 911 who are the globe's current psychopaths and murderers. If we could manage to create such a firestorm of outrage that they're too scared to show their face, let alone keep waging all these 911-based wars, then we could potentially save the world from it's dystopian, Orwellian trajectory. No?

    whether its Saudis or Israelis or Americans or a combination of all three or more. We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can't continue their Satanic agenda.

    Soros still shows his ugly face around town. He needs to be so openly reviled that he won't set foot on honest soil. Let him and the rest of them rot in the shadows of their own oubliette. If they come out of hiding, we'll have protests and interrupt their speaking engagements with howls of 'war criminal!'. We can demand a sort of international inquiry from the grass roots. Putin and Farage and Le Pen and Trump and all the new comers might just be willing to entertain such a notion. Or at least tolerate a privately organized one.

    (but if Hillary gets in, it's all she wrote. Pack your bags)

    Hi, Rurik!

    You wrote: “We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda.”

    We have been demanding a new and thorough investigation into 9/11…that’s what the 9/11 truth movement is all about! Therefore, you must be implying something else…a stronger action to be taken. What, pray tell, would that stronger action be? What would it look like? Who is strong enough to lead this new, stronger push? Please, don’t tell me you’re pinning all your hopes on Trump…’cause that ain’t gonna happen. Hillary will be “our” next president, not the Donald. Even if he were to become POTUS he would be schooled on how the NWO actually works…if he presses his luck too far, they’ll just reach out and squash him like a bug, and blame it on a Mexican patsy.

    As for forcing “the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda.”, my answer is this: The International Jew (I’m talking about the Rothschild banking clan, amongst others) has been working nonstop on their NWO project for the past 235, at least, maybe longer. They have poured Trillions of dollars into it’s construction, and have quietly, and systematically, crushed all opposition to it. How many millions of people have they slaughtered to impose their global rule? How many thousands of politicians and corporate executives have they murdered, blackmailed, intimidated, or bribed over the passed two centuries? You don’t seriously think that they’ll just give all that up and say “OK, you win, we’ll quit being evil.” do you? No possible way that will ever happen…they will slaughter 5 billion people if they have to, but their rule of this planet will continue, no matter what may come. In other words, they will continue building and implementing their NWO until we physically stop them from doing so.

    There are tons of people TALKING about the evil crimes of the NWO, and how we need to stop them, but no one (that I’m aware of) is willing to actually DO something about it. Talk is one thing, organizing to resist them is something totally different. You can talk and protest all you want, but nothing will change…they can just ignore you, then what?

    The only way to stop them is through a bloody revolution, first in the US, then in Europe, then on into the rest of the nations of this world…who would lead such a massive effort, Trump? Who would be the brave revolutionaries to fight in this righteous struggle? Millennials?

    Hey Anonymous Smith,

    I'm going to address this post to both you and John Jeremiah Smith, because you're both expressing pessimism that anything can be done. Perhaps not. But my point was that it certainly wouldn't hurt if more people would speak out. Like the guy who was on the USS Liberty that John was talking about. Whomever. We need them all. There are a lot of very talented writers who write for the UR. If more of them would speak out on the subject, just think what that would do to snowball things.

    Sounds just like Professor Wolin's description of inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy. It's unfortunate, but historically most populations will tacitly accept wars waged by their elites, as long as they do not involve any personal loss or destruction. Since America is not credibly threatened by any of the many countries that are being bombed or where covert operations, proxies, contractors and actual troops are fighting, there is no perceived downside that is sufficient to generate effective opposition, just the gradual attrition of the productive economy, militarization towards a garrison state with its concomitant loss of freedom, replaced by libertinism and licentiousness as degraded substitutes. Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, worsens all the democratically unaccountable policies that require ever more resources of the same pernicious sort to try to sustain.

    [ Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, ]

    The dollar is more than sustainable. No one can see into the indefinite future, yet as things stand today the dollar’s position is unassailable. For those that feel otherwise are free to hold their assets in other denominations. How many would?

    In his 1930 essay “Economic Possibility of Our Grandchildren,” John Maynard Keynes forecast a future governed by a different set of expectations. The 21st century’s work week would last just 15 hours, he said, and the chief social challenge of the future would be the difficulty of managing leisure and abundance.

    “For the first time since his creation man will be faced with his real, his permanent problem,” Keynes wrote, “how to use his freedom from pressing economic cares, how to occupy the leisure, which science and compound interest will have won for him, to live wisely and agreeably and well.”

    Well that reality has arrived; for many, a great many in fact in the West, do not actually need to put in 40 hrs of work per week. Unfortunately it hasn’t for the greater many, and on that score one only has to underline the lack of fiscal policy. Now, it is reasonable to argue that such a shortcoming is only a manifestation of the deep state. All societies start with egalitarian wealth distributions but inevitably end with inequality, disquiet and angst. It’s the human condition.

    Today, the wealth gap, and the disparities between persons who derive the means that support them from passive activities vs. those who rely on their physical (meaning at least physically present) to earn means of support, is a near equivalent to slave ownership :: slave labor.

    That is a brilliant prescient statement by Keynes. We are already seeing that less and less people are in the work force. The fact is that we have to work less to provide the necessities of life. The fact is that it requires less work to provide food, shelter, energy, and transportation today than it did yesterday. Where will the efficient electric digital age take us? Where will a robotic produced economy take us. How are we all going to make a living?

    Can a pleasure society be created where intellectual electronic entertainment is the bases of the economy? The answer is why not?

    Can our current capitalist system of concentrated big money, big ownership of enterprise, and big political power work for this new society?

    Absolutely NOT!

    Clearly with our big money system, personal freedom is waning and the prospect for a peaceful world is nil.

    We are already seeing where big money is being concentrated into fewer and fewer hands. Fewer people own more and more of societies enterprises and power centers. We are returning to a medieval serfdom – where power is owned by a big moneyed few in faraway big money centers.

    If a low labor civilization emerges – it must be a culture where the ownership of all its business and governing institutions are distributed locally to all its people. Only then can we progress as a free peaceful society.

    Before and after the “Holocaust”: Jewish population numbers in 1933 and 1948

    For over a century, the Jewish World Almanac has been widely regarded as the most authentic source for the world’s Jewish population numbers. Academics all over the world, including the editors of the Encyclopedia Britannica, used to rely on the accuracy of those numbers. Here is what the World Alamanacs of 1933 and 1948 had to say about the world population of Jews.

    World Almanac 1933 ---- See the link:

    In other words, according to the World Almanac the world population of Jews increased (!) between 1933 and 1948 from 15,315,000 to 15,753,000. If the German government under Adolf Hitler had – as alleged – murdered six million Jews those losses should have been reflected in the Jewish population numbers quoted in the World Almanac.

    Brutal awakening? Nah -- the awakening, if it happens at all, will be a sort of dull recognition of how it all happened, from somewhere in the depths of feudal toil. Sometimes I wonder if the oligarchs will actually find it amusing to put Americans into the harvested wheat fields to glean a daily porridge.

    The banksters will still be sitting pretty, Anna, I can assure of that. As always, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

    The Washington Post didn't mention those six nations bombed by the Pentagon because those countries are victims of a proxy war for the Zionist regime.

    Since the 1940s including the WWII America never waged wars to defend America from a foreign threat - as there were no such threats. I invaded other nations to loot their natural resources and establish a new colonial empire to please the military establishment and Jewish Lobby group.

    In June 2015, a team of US investigators and lawyers led by former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, sued George Bush and his senior administration officials over illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003 on Jewish Purim night.

    The war against US-puppet Saddam Hussein by the US and the Zionist-controlled European nations’ bloody war began in 1991 as result of his failure to topple Islamic regime in Tehran during 8-year of Iraqi invasion of Iran. The war was funded by Saudi Arabia, Emir of Kuwait, the US, Israel, France and Britain.

    Recently, Ramsey Clark appeared on RT show hosted by Abby Martin (watch below). During the interview Clark narrated the horrors Iraqi people especially children suffered at the hands of US administration since 1991.

    Philip Zelikow (Jewish), former senior official of the so-called “9/11 Commission”, admitted on September 10, 2002 that Iraq was invaded by the US forces because Saddam Hussein became a threat to Israel.

    Former US secretary of state, Madeleine Albright (Jewish) had claimed that killing of 500,000 Iraqi babies was worth the price (to remove threat to Israel).

    Donald Trump is not the first anti-Muslim American bigot. The great majority of US Congressmen and Senators including Hillary Clinton and John McCain have a long history of voting in favor of Israel’s proxy wars against Muslims. In 2002, Republican-led Congress 196:133, and Democratic-led Senate 77:23 voted authorizing Bush to attack Iraq blaming Saddam Hussein for 9/11 attacks.

    In August 2012, Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that four women were arrested for praying in the women’s section of the Wailing Wall. After keeping them under lock for half-a-day, the Jewish security police released them on the condition that they would not enter the area for praying for the next 50 days. If any of those women decided to go back on their promise, she could face up to 18 months in jail under Israeli law for “being danger to public peace”.

    Badruddin Khan has drawn interesting parallels between the British colonization of India and what he calls the Israeli colonization of the United States--
    http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/09/07/has-israel-effectively-colonized-the-united-states/

    +how a small state, Britain, controlled a much larger and more populous state

    +how a small state but wealthy state demanded and received regular 'tribute' from the larger, resource-rich but actually impoverished larger state

    +using relatively few British overlords but rather putting Indian people in charge of enforcing British demands on Indian people

    +the small state, Britain, harvesting the advantage of the vast wealth generated by the superior resources and more abundant, but cheap, labor of the colonized state

    +the small state demanded and got the people of the large, subservient state to send their young men off to fight for the interests of the small state. The large state -- India (USA) accrued no benefits from the fight but in many cases endured terrific suffering

    +members of the colonized state may not criticize the colonizer state: in the USA (and other places) the slightest whiff of criticism is smacked down immediately and harshly

    +the colonizing state controls the communications networks, cultural preferences, and financial systems of the colonized state (Jews have controlled US media since at least WWII, and have controlled US central bank since a Jewish person was prominent in creating the Fed, in 1910 - 1913)

    Chilling

    Once you see how the USA is managed as a colonial enterprise by Israel, in the same way that India was colonized (and abused) by the British, it's like taking the red pill, like putting the glasses on: the entire perspective begins to make sense -- a terrible situation, for sure, but at least it's clear who is the enemy and who is the stooge, the victim, the patsy.

    Maan – you really have your brain hanging between your legs. Badruddin Khan was trying to tell you that like the Brits, the Jews too will be kicked out of Palestine eventually.

    Henry Kissinger, the mass-killer Zionist Jews, on the other hand believes that the Zionist entity has only TEN YEARS TO SURVIVE.

    On September 17, 2012, Cindy Adams in her column at the New York Post, quoted Henry Kissinger predicting that if the current isolation of the Zionist entity continues – the Zionist entity will be gone within next 10 years.

    “Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated – and I quote the statement word for word: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel”. I repeat: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel”, wrote Cindy Adams.

    “Do not argue with Mr. Kissinger’s know-how. He already knows how,” added Adams to emphasized her point.

    Some Men had great leisure in times of slavery.

    Would Thomas Jefferson have been quite so productive if he had not had free labor to perform the many tasks that supported his lifestyle?

    Today, the wealth gap, and the disparities between persons who derive the means that support them from passive activities vs. those who rely on their physical (meaning at least physically present) to earn means of support, is a near equivalent to slave ownership :: slave labor.

    Moreover, class distinctions by which the wealthy -- those who did not need to toil to live, but could spend their leisure in political activity, or scholarly study, or in debauchery -- are as old as the pyramids.

    As for How will people use their abundant leisure time, Keynes did not foresee the internet.

    Leisure time + democratized and relatively inexpensive forms of mass communication have changed the political, social and cultural landscape.

    One enormous resource the American people can benefit from, if it is properly organized and deployed, is the large number of retirees, a sufficient number of whom are economically secure and at least moderately educated.

    "America the warlike predatory capitalist operating with little interference or input from the citizenry might be considered a virtual definition of deep state."

    A deep state has no allegiance but to power & money. Its existence depends on a mature security apparatus that works exclusively for the benefits of Deep State. Leaders of Deep State are not encumbered by loyalty, principles, dignity, and other humanistic stuff... Deep State is a manifestation of victorious psychopathy, which means no empathy, no responsibility, and the all-encompassing, parasitoid mentality.
    By a historical accident, the US has also become a host for parasitic Zionists that use the vast resources and current position of the US to advance Eretz Israel. In the process of using the plump host, the ziocons have been finishing once and for all with the heavily-promoted picture of always-victimized Jews; instead the humankind has been learning that the murderous reptilian proclivities emerge in Jewish people with the same extreme intensity as in any other ethnic/religious group.
    Implementation of Oded Yinon plan - the destruction of Iraq, Syria, and Libya - makes moral ruin of Holocaust museums.
    Hanna Arendt was correct: humanity is dealing with the banality of evil.

    Deep State is a manifestation of victorious psychopathy

    The critical question here is why does it work so effectively.

    By a historical accident, the US has also become …

    What about the Native Americans? Was that a “zionist” instigated ethnic cleansing? Sure, by one interpretation of the word Zionist — America as the promised Zion — it was zionist. And sure, Jewish money interests benefited but so did the WASPs that ran the show. That the International Jews managed to outsmart the WASPS (or have they?) is neither here nor there. The machine was already well oiled and rolling.

    Or how about the glorious British Empire and their “banal” pursuit of loot regardless of the cost in human suffering? Has anyone put a head count on how many “brown” and “yellow” untermenchen the British dispatched to an early grave?

    Or the currently cowed, but previously quite assertive, Japanese and their brutal and violent episode in East Asia?

    Or the equally cowed, but previously quite assertive, ubermenchen of Deutschland?

    How about the Soviets and their not-so-pretty record of internal and external behavior?

    The Chinese? How many millions perished to pave the way for the current darling of globalism?

    Anyway, this list can go on and on …

    Let’s circle back to my first question: The dictionary says “banal” means common, unoriginal, etc.

    I would like to modify Herr Heidegger’s protege’s bon mot and proclaim that ‘the banality of the biped engenders the banality of the evil that rules over it’. (Think about it.)

    And as for the current affairs, the author of this post ironically decorates his piece with a provincial caricature, correctly expecting to enjoy — from his “balcony” — the spectacle of the peanut gallery trading in racial, religious, and political blows.

    “… a conspiracy obsessed anti-Semitic psycho…”

    Where have you found in my post an attempt at “exposing” allegedly “secret” help to ISIS by Israel? The help is no secret. Here Haaretz openly questions hostilities towards ISIS: “West Making Big Mistake in Fighting ISIS, Says Senior Israeli Officer:” http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.623717
    However, there are certain files that Israel does want to keep secret: “Citing National Security, Israel Likely to Keep Army File on Nakba Sealed:” http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-1.743055
    David Ben Gurion (the first Prime Minister of Israel) writes in his “Letters to his son” (1937) – “We will expel the Arabs and take their place. In each attack a decisive blow should be struck resulting in the destruction of homes and the expulsion of the population.” Sounds like certain materials from Holocaust archives, except that here the Israelis emulate Nazis and Palestinians are treated as Jews in Warsaw Ghetto. Take a note that this terrorist activity by Israelis against native Palestinian population took place before WWII.
    Ben Gurion “worked very well with Konrad Adenauer’s government in Bonn, and West Germany provided large sums (in the Reparations Agreement between Israel and West Germany) in compensation for Nazi Germany’s persecution of the Jews during the Holocaust.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Ben-Gurion
    That was an important precedent. In consequence, because one ethnic group (Jews) has been persecuting and destroying the property of another ethnic group (Palestinians), the aggressor (Israelis) must pay reparations to the victim (Palestinians). Or this simple logical conclusion has anti-Israel bias?

    George H W Bush was one of the speakers at the Jerusalem Conference, convened by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father, Benzion, in July 1979, to discuss international terrorism. The Conference was conducted under the auspices of the "Jonathan Institute," named for Benjamin's older brother who died in the IDF raid on Entebbe.

    Benjamin edited a book on the conference, International Terrorism: Challenge and Response.

    imo that Conference, and that book, lay out the blueprint for the global war on terror. In Benzion's opening speech, Yasser Arafat and PLO were named as the target of the war on terror that the "free world" was enjoined to engage. (The Iranian revolution had not yet fully erupted).

    Major college libraries in the DC area, as well as the Library of Congress, hold copies of the book. Check the WorldCat website www.worldcat.org, for availability at a library near you.

    “Victor Ostrovsky, a former Israeli Mossad agent, wrote two books about Israel’s terror against their enemies. In one of them, he discusses the fate of Palestinians who illegally cross the border in search of work in Israel. Many thousands of these young men simply are never heard from again after being captured by Israel’s forces. Some of them are taken to the ABC research facilities where they endure the indescribable terror of chemical, nuclear or biological warfare.” http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/deception.html

    Hey Geokat62, good to see you.

    Good to see that someone from Up There is aware of how the distortions of foreign policy are negatively impacting lives and property Down Here. Detroit is not the only city that is a mess. I thought to save the cost of tolls and instead drove through the heart of Baltimore city, and it's tragic. (It also took about 90 minutes rather than the 10 min. toll road route).

    I wanted to see when you last commented and noticed, to my embarrassment, that in late August you responded to my comment that disparaged Greek culture --

    http://www.unz.com/article/jewish-fear-and-loathing-of-donald-trump/#comment-1548686

    I don't remember much from high school but I do remember being enthralled with "the Golden Age of Greece," with Pericles. I recall reading The Allegory of the Cave -- didn't fully understand it, but it's stayed with me and matured.
    In short, I am profoundly sorry for my wise-acre comment about the deplorable state of Greek civilization, not least because revitalized access to the Greeks gave rise to the flowering of the Italian Renaissance and my hero, Machiavelli.

    In that comment you also called me to account for my hyperbolic assertions regarding Yossi Alpher, and what I claimed were his (sob) statements that Israelis pine to be like Iran, to be linked to the ancient Persian empire.

    Here is an extended quote from which I distilled that notion:

    BRUCE REIDEL set the context and asked:

    It seems to me the centerpiece of the [periphery] strategy was Iran, and one of the things you lay out in the book is that even when the revolution comes in 1978, and the events that follow from it, desire to get back to the good old days was so strong. Can you give us a sense of -- I call it, and I think you call it – the periphery nostalgia that lingered on, which, you know, in this town
    now, all we ever hear from Israelis is that Iran is the source of all evil, but if you go back 30 years you would have been told, no, Iran is the source of all wisdom and the partner that we really need.
     
    ALPHER responded:


    I call it periphery nostalgia, because it still exists. There are still very senior Israelis -- and I have a long list of quotes from people like Ehud Barak, Uri Lubrani, those of you who know him, people are still around who were very active in the relationship before the Shah fell and who, indeed, believe to this day that the Islamic Republic is an aberration and a temporary one, and if you somehow push the right military or sanctions button or whatever, they will fall and the good guys will come back to power. [imo this is a very important insight -S2C]

    Now, here I have to go back a little bit to explain how we related, particularly to Iran, Turkey, and Ethiopia, which were, indeed, the pillars of the periphery in the ‘50s and ‘60s and ‘70s.

    We Israelis, again, back to that isolation -- we Israelis, to this day, have a need to -- a deep need to be recognized and accepted by the region. You see, Bibi’s demand, which is supported by most Israelis, that the Palestinians recognize us as a Jewish state, or the state of the Jewish people -- the nation-state of the Jewish people -- this goes way back, this need to be recognized. It explains our relationships with some of the Christian and Kurdish and Druze minorities as well, and so at the height of the periphery doctrine, when things are going well, there’s this sense that the ancient peoples of the Middle East have created an alliance, the people who precede the Arabs, okay. We go back with Iran, we just celebrated Purim, all right, we go back 2,600 years with Iran. The Egyptian, the Ethiopian national narrative is King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. So, this is almost a biblical -- a new biblical chapter.
    This is how some people in Israel felt.


    There were also some people who were just cynical,practitioners of realpolitik. Everybody in Tehran and in Addis and in Ankara were cynical practitioners of realpolitik. They did not reciprocate. They said, we kidded ourselves that they did.

    And we still do to this day, because if you believe that this is -- we are somehow Middle Eastern, ancient blood brothers, then who’s Khomeini? This wasn’t meant to be.

    And so the Shah falls, and there are all kinds of Iranians going around making contacts, and if you just give us this, that, and the other, we’ll get rid of these guys and go back to the good old days.
     
    You cited Rabbi Ken Spiro (not one of my favorites, but a useful source for information) as he traced the linkages between Jewish culture and Greek wisdom.
    If I'm not mistaken, those connections emerged only in later pre-Christian and the earliest Christian times. The Jewish relationship with Persia goes back to the time of Cyrus, as Alpher implies when he made reference to Purim (although why he would think that supplanting the Persian queen and foreign minister, suborning the king, and killing the foreign minister, his sons, and 70,000 Persians would endear Yehud to the Persian royal line let alone make them "blood brothers" escapes me).
    Jews relied on Persian support in a very bloody assault on Roman Jerusalem in about 600 AD (iirc), and as Alpher reflected, Zionist Israel relied heavily upon, and was intricately embedded in, the Shah's government. In "The Thirty Years' War," Ronen Bergman details how destabilized Israelis were when the Shah's government fell; Israelis responded by stealing what they could from Iran, and " 'sell-sell-selling' millions of dollars worth of inferior weapons to Iran in their war with Iraq, to generate revenue and to watch them kill each other."

    I admit that my commentary on Alpher's statements was wildly exaggerated: I don't have a $38 billion budget or the ability to demonize Iran in three negative comments per day in a Yahoo news feed, so I shout and scream and set what's left of my hair on fire. I do believe that my comment was substantially accurate in its essence; and that it provides important insights into the Israeli psyche as it informs Israeli strategy.

    Since this comment is reaching back to an old topic, I won't disrupt Phil's excellent article further.

    Just wanted to say Hey, and clear the record. I believe, and you should remain aware, that your contributions to this forum are valued.

  67. The so-called “Deep State” is what essayist Publius Decius Mus identified as the “administrative state” – the permanent bureaucracy/commissariat that has come to wield unconstitutional powers over us, the people, and even over the three constitutionally established branches of the federal government (and even over the states’ and municipalities’ lawfully established prerogatives).

    Myself, I’ve called the “Deep State”/”administrative state” The State That Serves The State Itself. To wit, the administrative state imperium serves its own interests (and the interests of its department, administration, office, bureau chiefs down to its lowest employees), not the limits of the Constitution, not the interests of the people, and at times not even the interests of the transitory elect, and certainly not always the interests of foreign powers – including not always the interests of Israel.

    The administrative state is a classic instance of bureaucratic metastasis – commonly known as empire-building, to the point at which its concentration of regulatory power now sets policy, makes law, renders legally binding judgments, and even metes out penal sentences – all of which used to be the constitutional brief solely of the three constitutional branches of government.

    To perpetuate and expand its empires, the administrative state’s minions simply declare that their particular commissariat or alliance of commissariats needs more funding, more personnel, more power, more reach to “solve” this or that “problem” that they claim to have “identified,” or that a member of the transitory elect has “identified” and the solution of which comports with the vested interests of the administrative state. The inverse of this is when the administrative state acts to defeat the solving of actual problems that have actually been identified, e.g. , Open Borders, disproportionate black crime, “refugee” resettlement, when the solution of such actual problems reduces or precludes the growth of administrative state power.

    The administrative state is like a hybrid of python constricting all non-administrative state power and exercise of rights, and of a hive-minded colony, or “borg,” of bloodsucking bats that parasitically drains the people, the public purse, and even the transitory elect of freedom of speech and action – of Liberty itself. And it’s no accident that the administrative state is Globalist in reach and ambition, rather than statist in the sense of assuring the state its actual constitutional limits.

    Consider for a moment how Washington operates. There is gridlock in Congress and the legislature opposes nearly everything that the White House supports. Nevertheless, certain things happen seemingly without any discussion, including the bipartisan, unconstitutional and extremely dangerous assumption of increased executive authority by the White House.
     
    This statement contains a very penetrating insight, it's a bit like the astronomer who posited the existence of Pluto from the irregular orbits of Neptune and Uranus due to the gravitational pull of a large unseen object. A phantom, 4th branch of government, the one with the most power, must exist in order to coordinate executive and legislative branches in a manner that would otherwise seem incomprehensible to the unaided eye.

    No one of any note has thought to point this out even though for decades analysts constantly bemoan "gridlock." We here it all the time. The fact that no one connects the dots means that most analysts aren't that insightful to begin with or they are carefully skirting around the issue by pretending not to understand it.

    I guess it just boils down to legitimacy and authority. Congressmen don't have much of the former and therefore cannot exercise the latter. However, the members of the phantom branch are hidden away from public scrutiny and so the only legitimating force they require is tons of money, which they have. It's a stable system and a perfect system (for them). This suggests a couple of mechanisms at work which help to create the political gravity we see: Obviously there are large campaign contributions. However, these are often times traceable. Something not so traceable is a devious form of "Pay to Play." Just imagine how many congressmen have been compromised in some way. They have to surrender their principles and morality. They are probably spied upon, offered sex from a hooker, cajoled into doing drugs, whatever it would take to humiliate them to their friends, family and community should their secret ever get out. They can be humiliated by false accusations of racism or whatever as well.

    And so the Deep State has a great deal of gravity.

    I don’t think the powers that be wait till a congress person is elected I believe politicians are spotted, targeted and recruited at an early age, perhaps college or law school.

    They are helped along from small town school board to state assembly to congress and maybe the senate and Oh joy of joys! a crack at cabinet secretary or president.

    So they are really miles from age 25 or earlier. Look at Obama. He was actually the product of a breeding program begun in the 1930s. The marriages of communist women and black men, any old black man available would produce the perfect frontman for President

    Clinton was similar except he was spotted by his uncle Ray Clinton a very wealthy businessman who was the money and power behind many Arkansas politicians Hildabeast was in Time magazine at age 22 for her college graduation speech advocating revolution.

    My dear Robin G, would that be the bureaucracy - which includes the DoD - that administers Government contracts with Silicon Valley, Wall Street, defense contractors, NGOs, all of which swap big shot and technical employees in a revolving-door clusterf_ck as suits the needs of the Deep/Administrative State and its co-corrupt among the Globalist Davos Class? Just as the Fed swaps personnel with Wall Street? Just as universities and corporations swap personnel with the Fed, with Wall Street, with media, with the Deep/Administrative State? Just as law firms, corporations, Wall Street, universities, and more such swap shysters with the courts?

    Your Mr. Lofgren left out media - which I call Enemedia-Pravda - which form a power node that does the bidding of the Deep/Administrative State/Globalist Davos Class, because media are owned by the Globalist Davos Establishment, which has owned a submission hold over media since the FCC (the Deep/Administrative State!) deregulated communications ownership. If media do not form a node of power, then I don't what else would form a power node.

    The Deep/Administrative State is the clearinghouse and fig leaf for the ambitions of all the other power nodes which must get approval - or a mere knowing hands-off wink - from the Administrative State to do and get what those other power nodes want to do and get to do.

    Ron Paul on the record-setting “aid” to Israel:

    So why is the US giving a rich and incredibly well-armed country a record amount of military aid?…

    Another reason is a very powerful lobby in Washington, AIPAC, that pressures Members of Congress to focus on Israel’s interests instead of US interests. Members of Congress should look at our economy, with effectively zero interest rates, an anemic non-recovery from the 2008 crash, historically low participation in the work force, and inflation eroding the value of the dollar and conclude that this might not be the best time to start handing out billions of dollars in foreign aid. Unfortunately most Members of Congress find it impossible to say no to special interest groups like AIPAC.

    Here’s a better aid package for Israel: free trade, travel, friendly relations, and no entangling alliances. Israel should be free to pursue its national interests and we should be free to pursue ours. If individual Americans feel compelled to provide assistance to Israel or any other country or cause overseas they should be allowed. But the rest of us should not be forced to do so. Trade, not aid.

    Hey geo,

    If what I read is correct this deal should be recognized as some sort of improvement.

    Improvement one was that all the money has to be spent on US manufactured weapons. IOW we won't be giving them money to buy their own weapons from themselves.

    Improvement two was an agreement that they would not ask congress for any additional military aid.

    To me, item two is really bizarre. You have the Executive Branch signing an agreement and extracting a promise from a foreign entity that it (the foreign entity) will not use its political power with the Legislative Branch to abrogate the agreement.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    How about this? Hmm!

    Before and after the “Holocaust”: Jewish population numbers in 1933 and 1948

    For over a century, the Jewish World Almanac has been widely regarded as the most authentic source for the world’s Jewish population numbers. Academics all over the world, including the editors of the Encyclopedia Britannica, used to rely on the accuracy of those numbers. Here is what the World Alamanacs of 1933 and 1948 had to say about the world population of Jews.

    World Almanac 1933 —- See the link:

    In other words, according to the World Almanac the world population of Jews increased (!) between 1933 and 1948 from 15,315,000 to 15,753,000. If the German government under Adolf Hitler had – as alleged – murdered six million Jews those losses should have been reflected in the Jewish population numbers quoted in the World Almanac.

    There's no way I see Trump appointing any special prosecutors to go after any of these uber-criminals. Rather, I suspect that he's willing to let them all take their ill-gotten lucre, and go off to their pedophile playgrounds where their non-stop flow of 'conflict children' victims will be slowed down by Trump's ebbing disengagement of US imposed imperial global terrorism and theft.

    [ Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, ]

    The dollar is more than sustainable. No one can see into the indefinite future, yet as things stand today the dollar's position is unassailable. For those that feel otherwise are free to hold their assets in other denominations. How many would?

    In his 1930 essay “Economic Possibility of Our Grandchildren,” John Maynard Keynes forecast a future governed by a different set of expectations. The 21st century’s work week would last just 15 hours, he said, and the chief social challenge of the future would be the difficulty of managing leisure and abundance.

    “For the first time since his creation man will be faced with his real, his permanent problem,” Keynes wrote, “how to use his freedom from pressing economic cares, how to occupy the leisure, which science and compound interest will have won for him, to live wisely and agreeably and well."

    Well that reality has arrived; for many, a great many in fact in the West, do not actually need to put in 40 hrs of work per week. Unfortunately it hasn't for the greater many, and on that score one only has to underline the lack of fiscal policy. Now, it is reasonable to argue that such a shortcoming is only a manifestation of the deep state. All societies start with egalitarian wealth distributions but inevitably end with inequality, disquiet and angst. It's the human condition.

    A bet? But Sam, I thought that as a rule, economists NEVER have to face any consequences for their miserably failed predictions. Isn't that in the Economics 101 rule book? Rule #1: Thou shalt be as accurate as a newspaper horoscope. No? Not in there? I was sure that it was. Could've fooled me. You better double check if it is, just to be sure. But in the meantime...

    Fine! I'll be your huckleberry, sir. It's a bet! Game on!

    Well, according to all my scientific calculations of the DXY index and after making the proper adjustments for the fact that a seventh son of a seventh son hasn't been born yet to a vestal virgin during a blood moon sacrifice while Saturn is in its downward trajectory in the sky through the Pleaides star cluster... I think it's pretty safe to say that the breach of 45 will occur at noon tomorrow.

    4:20 at the latest.

    Bet you didn't think that I'd remember to make the vestal virgin adjustments, didn't you? What, do you think I'm some kind of idiot that doesn't know about blood moon DXY index sacrifices, Sam? I know ALL about'em. That's why my noon prediction is sure to be as accurate as all the nation's top Keynesian economists whose predictions always turn out to be as accurate as that of a weatherman's(but they sure can tell you all the reasons for why they were wrong, can't they?).

    Eat a light lunch tomorrow, Sam. I predict that you better save room for the Humble Pie that you'll be having for desert. ;)

    As you can clearly see, I have absolutely no idea when it's coming however I am sure as shit that it IS coming. You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

    Hi, Rurik!

    You wrote: "We need to demand a new and thorough investigation, or at least force the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda."

    We have been demanding a new and thorough investigation into 9/11...that's what the 9/11 truth movement is all about! Therefore, you must be implying something else...a stronger action to be taken. What, pray tell, would that stronger action be? What would it look like? Who is strong enough to lead this new, stronger push? Please, don't tell me you're pinning all your hopes on Trump...'cause that ain't gonna happen. Hillary will be "our" next president, not the Donald. Even if he were to become POTUS he would be schooled on how the NWO actually works...if he presses his luck too far, they'll just reach out and squash him like a bug, and blame it on a Mexican patsy.

    As for forcing "the scum far enough into the shadows that they can’t continue their Satanic agenda.", my answer is this: The International Jew (I'm talking about the Rothschild banking clan, amongst others) has been working nonstop on their NWO project for the past 235, at least, maybe longer. They have poured Trillions of dollars into it's construction, and have quietly, and systematically, crushed all opposition to it. How many millions of people have they slaughtered to impose their global rule? How many thousands of politicians and corporate executives have they murdered, blackmailed, intimidated, or bribed over the passed two centuries? You don't seriously think that they'll just give all that up and say "OK, you win, we'll quit being evil." do you? No possible way that will ever happen...they will slaughter 5 billion people if they have to, but their rule of this planet will continue, no matter what may come. In other words, they will continue building and implementing their NWO until we physically stop them from doing so.

    There are tons of people TALKING about the evil crimes of the NWO, and how we need to stop them, but no one (that I'm aware of) is willing to actually DO something about it. Talk is one thing, organizing to resist them is something totally different. You can talk and protest all you want, but nothing will change...they can just ignore you, then what?

    The only way to stop them is through a bloody revolution, first in the US, then in Europe, then on into the rest of the nations of this world...who would lead such a massive effort, Trump? Who would be the brave revolutionaries to fight in this righteous struggle? Millennials?

    There are tons of people TALKING about the evil crimes of the NWO

    Hey Anonymous Smith,

    I’m going to address this post to both you and John Jeremiah Smith, because you’re both expressing pessimism that anything can be done. Perhaps not. But my point was that it certainly wouldn’t hurt if more people would speak out. Like the guy who was on the USS Liberty that John was talking about. Whomever. We need them all. There are a lot of very talented writers who write for the UR. If more of them would speak out on the subject, just think what that would do to snowball things.

    Heya, Rurik!

    I dig where you're coming from, I, myself, have said virtually the same thing that you said here: "If more of them would speak out on the subject, just think what that would do to snowball things."

    This is a perfectly accurate point and I have no argument against it, in principle. Unfortunately, time is not on our side...the NWO is vastly accelerating it's plans for world domination, because, thanks to the internet, the people are rapidly waking up to those nefarious plans. The more the people wake up, the quicker their pace...in other words, the faster we wake up, the more perilous our situation becomes.

    One of the primary reasons for 9/11 was the advent of the internet. The massive, early growth of the internet took them completely by surprise and they were forced to accelerate their plans...thus, the rollout of the totalitarian police-state infrastructure in all Western countries; the acceleration of the implementation of the UN Agenda 21 program (the last time I checked there were over 600 US cities cooperating with ICLEI); the explosive growth in the Cultural Marxist/Social Justice movement; etc., etc.

    Things could get out of control quick, fast, and in a hurry, and we could find ourselves facing a WW III scenario, or a race war here in the US. We don't know what's coming or when it will happen...but something big and terrible is in the works, and most people sense it. I finally gave up on the whole trying-to-wake-people-up thing 3 yrs ago. I left the internet behind and quadrupled my 'prepping' efforts...I spent a huge pile of cash, and tens of thousands of hours getting myself ready "to rock and roll!" Come what may, I'll be ready for it. How about you, Rurik, are you ready?

    [ Perversely, the precarious nature of an imperial world economic order based on an unsustainable dollar primarily buttressed by embargo style sanctions and ultimate threat of military force, ]

    The dollar is more than sustainable. No one can see into the indefinite future, yet as things stand today the dollar's position is unassailable. For those that feel otherwise are free to hold their assets in other denominations. How many would?

    In his 1930 essay “Economic Possibility of Our Grandchildren,” John Maynard Keynes forecast a future governed by a different set of expectations. The 21st century’s work week would last just 15 hours, he said, and the chief social challenge of the future would be the difficulty of managing leisure and abundance.

    “For the first time since his creation man will be faced with his real, his permanent problem,” Keynes wrote, “how to use his freedom from pressing economic cares, how to occupy the leisure, which science and compound interest will have won for him, to live wisely and agreeably and well."

    Well that reality has arrived; for many, a great many in fact in the West, do not actually need to put in 40 hrs of work per week. Unfortunately it hasn't for the greater many, and on that score one only has to underline the lack of fiscal policy. Now, it is reasonable to argue that such a shortcoming is only a manifestation of the deep state. All societies start with egalitarian wealth distributions but inevitably end with inequality, disquiet and angst. It's the human condition.

    That is a brilliant prescient statement by Keynes. We are already seeing that less and less people are in the work force. The fact is that we have to work less to provide the necessities of life. The fact is that it requires less work to provide food, shelter, energy, and transportation today than it did yesterday. Where will the efficient electric digital age take us? Where will a robotic produced economy take us. How are we all going to make a living?

    Can a pleasure society be created where intellectual electronic entertainment is the bases of the economy? The answer is why not?

    Can our current capitalist system of concentrated big money, big ownership of enterprise, and big political power work for this new society?

    Absolutely NOT!

    Clearly with our big money system, personal freedom is waning and the prospect for a peaceful world is nil.

    We are already seeing where big money is being concentrated into fewer and fewer hands. Fewer people own more and more of societies enterprises and power centers. We are returning to a medieval serfdom – where power is owned by a big moneyed few in faraway big money centers.

    If a low labor civilization emerges – it must be a culture where the ownership of all its business and governing institutions are distributed locally to all its people. Only then can we progress as a free peaceful society.

If they can't be enticed to pursue other profitable sources of income then there is no solution besides bankruptcy and someone else's deep state out competes them, possibly reducing them and their empire to radioactive rubble.

    I think that money and power are enough for exciting the reptilian minds. Service to ideology implies self-sacrifice. The squandered trillions$$$ and murdered millions testify for the simplicity of urges.
    If there are any esoteric or occult societies involving the highest echelon of the Deep State deciders, these societies exist exclusively for social networking among the deciders. Consider the Fellowship of the alleged Christians in the high places in DC. It would be naive to think that the Fellowship exists for the betterment of society at large. The goals and deeds of the Fellowship are openly mercantile:
    "The author Jeff Sharlet has criticized the Fellowship's influence on US foreign policy. He argues the "networking" between foreign dictators and US politicians, defense contractors, and industry leaders has facilitated military aid for repressive foreign regimes... Sharlet in particular details the relationship with General Suharto of Indonesia in the 1970s, and with Siad Barre of Somalia in the 1980s. Also, in the archives, there are at least two nearly full boxes of documents describing the relationship with Brazil's long dictatorship of the Generals..."
    The Fellowship fella are profiteers dressing their desires for money & power into pseudo-Christian garbs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fellowship_(Christian_organization)
    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2007/09/hillarys-prayer-hillary-clintons-religion-and-politics
    "The Fellowship has brought controversial international figures to Washington to meet with U.S. officials. Among them are former Salvadoran Gen. Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova, who in 2002 was found liable by a civil jury in Florida for the torture of thousands of civilians in the 1980s. He was invited to the 1984 prayer breakfast, along with Gen. Gustavo Alvarez Martinez, then head of the Honduran armed forces who was linked to a death squad and the Central Intelligence Agency..."
    Nevertheless the Fellows present themselves as the defenders of "sanctity of life:" The Fellowship, through Representative Joe Pitts (R.-Pa.), redirected millions in US aid to Uganda from sex education programs to abstinence programs, thereby causing an evangelical revival, which included condom burnings."

    Greetings Geo.

    RG


    Hamilton, ON
    Sunday, September 18, 2016

    Please see attached and below:

    OPEN LETTER RE: “THE WHITE HELMETS”

    To the Federal Caucus of the New Democratic Party

    Dear Members of Parliament:

    It is with great disappointment and regret that we find ourselves calling into question your unanimous caucus decision1, announced by MP Nathan Cullen, to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization in Syria for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016. After all, as an anti-war organization formed to oppose the Anglo-American attack on Iraq in 2003, our Coalition was founded in part by NDP members in the greater Hamilton/Burlington area and one NDP riding association in Hamilton. Many of our present executive and rank-and-file members either belong to and/or support the NDP.

    In making his announcement, Cullen called the White Helmets “incredible civilians”, “connected to peace”, “the best of humanity”, “saving lives…in the midst of terror.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth.

    The White Helmets organization was founded by James LeMesurier, a British army officer formerly connected to the notorious Blackwater mercenary organization. The White Helmets describe themselves as “fiercely independent.” However, they are actually well-funded by the same governments who are waging the current aggression against Syria. In the past 2.5 years, they received £19.7m. from the British government and $23m. from the US government. Millions more dollars in cash, equipment, and training were contributed by various European NATO countries (including $4.5m. from the Netherlands).2 Would the caucus members agree that these amply-documented facts prove the White Helmets are NOT fiercely independent?

    The White Helmets operate only in terrorist-controlled areas of Syria. The organization is, in fact, deeply embedded in the Nusra (Al Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria) and ISIS terrorist networks.

    Is Mr. Cullen and the caucus unaware that the White Helmet leader, Raed Saleh, was refused entry to the USA and deported from Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, on March 29, 2016, because immigration officials found that he had “terrorist connections.”3 Saleh has repeatedly called for a no-fly zone over Syria, the same tactic used by NATO in 2011 to bomb Libya into a failed state.

    The White Helmets are first-responder poseurs. The REAL Syria Civil Defence was established in Syria in 1953 and was a founding member of the ICDO [International Civil Defence Org.] which is recognised by the United Nations. The White Helmets were only formed in 2013 by the UK, Turkey, and the US as part of their neocolonialist program in Syria. The White Helmets are not members of the ICDO.

    In short, contrary to Mr. Cullen’s statement to the CBC, the White Helmets are not civilians. And they are not “connected to peace.” In fact, they were recruited as part of the illegal regime change operation in Syria responsible for nearly half a million deaths, 11 million displaced persons, and the widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure. They are part of the reason that over 25,000 Syrian refugees have had to look to Canada for resettlement. And, being embedded directly in Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise hardly qualifies them to be “the best of humanity.”

    To his credit, party leader Tom Mulcair argued on March 20, 2015, in the House of Commons against expanding the Canadian military mission in the Middle East to include the bombing of Syria:

    Canada does not have the legal grounds to conduct airstrikes in Syria.

    ‘But our friends are doing it’ is simply not a defence. That sort of childish reasoning is more suitable to the schoolyard than it is to the House of Commons and the Prime Minister should know better.

    The fact is, what this government is proposing will put our Canadian Forces in the dubious position of acting outside of international law.

    New Democrats will not stand for it. 4

    The White Helmets call for a no-fly zone over Syria, a policy much-favoured by the Pentagon, but completely at odds with the view (expressed above) of the NDP leadership in the House of Commons. For this reason, the NDP should also not stand in support of the White Helmets.

    We note that your decision to support the White Helmets was taken unilaterally at a closed caucus retreat held several days ago in Montebello, Quebec. This matter was NOT raised at the NDP policy conference in Edmonton only a few months ago in April 2016. In fact, at that conference, party leaders prevented a wide-ranging discussion of the Syrian and Palestinian conflicts from taking place, as well as the $15 b. Canadian sale of arms to Saudi Arabia. A resolution, endorsed by several riding associations, for the party to engage in a wide-ranging foreign policy review was likewise prevented from even coming to the convention floor.

    We would like to emphasize that the humanitarian tragedy in Syria has gone on for far too long: five and a half years. The White Helmet organization does NOT seek to end the tragedy. Instead, it’s part of the propaganda apparatus of the same western governments (which included the Harper government of Canada) that were responsible for causing the tragedy in the first place. They use the White Helmets organization to promote further violence and bloodshed against the Syrian people, up to and including a full-scale and direct western military intervention in Syria.

    Judging by Cullen’s statement, it’s obvious that the caucus did not consider the partisan and fraudulent nature of the White Helmets. We urge you, then, to reverse your decision to support the nomination of the White Helmets organization for the Nobel Peace Prize. Further, our anti-war Coalition urges you to lobby for an end to Canadian economic sanctions against Syria and for a resumption of normal diplomatic relations with the government of Syria. We also hope that you will call for an end to Canada’s participation of the so-called “Friends of Syria” Group of Countries, which was put together in 2012, partly with the help of the Harper government, to wage a proxy war, using terrorist mercenaries, against the Government of Syria. And, we expect that the NDP in Parliament will continue to oppose the participation of the Trudeau government in the US-led coalition in Syria and Iraq.

    Thank you for your consideration of this very important matter.

    Doug Brown

    Do you think that the lust for money and power explains everything? Don't you think that some esoteric or occult societies are involved? Like perhaps antinomian Frankists?

    “Do you think that the lust for money and power explains everything? Don’t you think that some esoteric or occult societies are involved?”

    I think that money and power are enough for exciting the reptilian minds. Service to ideology implies self-sacrifice. The squandered trillions$$$ and murdered millions testify for the simplicity of urges.
    If there are any esoteric or occult societies involving the highest echelon of the Deep State deciders, these societies exist exclusively for social networking among the deciders. Consider the Fellowship of the alleged Christians in the high places in DC. It would be naive to think that the Fellowship exists for the betterment of society at large. The goals and deeds of the Fellowship are openly mercantile:
    “The author Jeff Sharlet has criticized the Fellowship’s influence on US foreign policy. He argues the “networking” between foreign dictators and US politicians, defense contractors, and industry leaders has facilitated military aid for repressive foreign regimes… Sharlet in particular details the relationship with General Suharto of Indonesia in the 1970s, and with Siad Barre of Somalia in the 1980s. Also, in the archives, there are at least two nearly full boxes of documents describing the relationship with Brazil’s long dictatorship of the Generals…”
    The Fellowship fella are profiteers dressing their desires for money & power into pseudo-Christian garbs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fellowship_(Christian_organization)

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2007/09/hillarys-prayer-hillary-clintons-religion-and-politics

    “The Fellowship has brought controversial international figures to Washington to meet with U.S. officials. Among them are former Salvadoran Gen. Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova, who in 2002 was found liable by a civil jury in Florida for the torture of thousands of civilians in the 1980s. He was invited to the 1984 prayer breakfast, along with Gen. Gustavo Alvarez Martinez, then head of the Honduran armed forces who was linked to a death squad and the Central Intelligence Agency…”
    Nevertheless the Fellows present themselves as the defenders of “sanctity of life:” The Fellowship, through Representative Joe Pitts (R.-Pa.), redirected millions in US aid to Uganda from sex education programs to abstinence programs, thereby causing an evangelical revival, which included condom burnings.”

    Heya, Rurik!

    I dig where you're coming from, I, myself, have said virtually the same thing that you said here: "If more of them would speak out on the subject, just think what that would do to snowball things."

    This is a perfectly accurate point and I have no argument against it, in principle. Unfortunately, time is not on our side...the NWO is vastly accelerating it's plans for world domination, because, thanks to the internet, the people are rapidly waking up to those nefarious plans. The more the people wake up, the quicker their pace...in other words, the faster we wake up, the more perilous our situation becomes.

    One of the primary reasons for 9/11 was the advent of the internet. The massive, early growth of the internet took them completely by surprise and they were forced to accelerate their plans...thus, the rollout of the totalitarian police-state infrastructure in all Western countries; the acceleration of the implementation of the UN Agenda 21 program (the last time I checked there were over 600 US cities cooperating with ICLEI); the explosive growth in the Cultural Marxist/Social Justice movement; etc., etc.

    Things could get out of control quick, fast, and in a hurry, and we could find ourselves facing a WW III scenario, or a race war here in the US. We don't know what's coming or when it will happen...but something big and terrible is in the works, and most people sense it. I finally gave up on the whole trying-to-wake-people-up thing 3 yrs ago. I left the internet behind and quadrupled my 'prepping' efforts...I spent a huge pile of cash, and tens of thousands of hours getting myself ready "to rock and roll!" Come what may, I'll be ready for it. How about you, Rurik, are you ready?

    Hey Mr. Smith,

    I suspect you’re correct in your assessment of their sense of urgency

    By backing Clinton, the Bush crime family is taking precautions to prevent any future grand jury indictments connected with the 9/11, false flag attacks.
     
    perhaps Carroll, but I doubt it

    if there were any serious fear that Trump would investigate 911, he'd have never made it this far. He has at least that much of a kosher stamp.

    Rather, I suspect that the Bush crime family's fortunes are too intertwined with the criminal junta that's been running things in DC for decades now. The MIC and CIA and other acronyms of Satan - and Bush and Cheney and all the boyz over there at Genie Energy, like Murdoch and Woolsey (who terrifyingly has been added to Trump's national security advisors) and Rothschild and Summers.. and the whole gaggle of scoundrels and global racketeers.. all see their fortunes interwoven with each others. If Trump makes nice with Putin, and puts the kibosh on the Eternal WarⓊ, then they all stand to lose.

    There's no way I see Trump appointing any special prosecutors to go after any of these uber-criminals. Rather, I suspect that he's willing to let them all take their ill-gotten lucre, and go off to their pedophile playgrounds where their non-stop flow of 'conflict children' victims will be slowed down by Trump's ebbing disengagement of US imposed imperial global terrorism and theft.

    they have nothing to fear except the loss of the status quo, that for them has meant an orgy of depravity and fabulous wealth. They'll be able to keep what they've got, but the flow of slop in the trough will slow down, and that's why their squealing

    IMHO

    I must reluctantly admit that if Trump were indeed the real thing, he would have done himself in a long time ago by a shot to the back of the head, succumbed to a heart attack, brain tumor, or fast-acting stomach cancer.

  114. I must dissent to the “deep state” thesis insofar as it connotes dark or mysterious individuals or groups sliding in and out of the visibility exercising consummate control over the power centers of government and business.

    The immoral, criminal and irrational behaviors Mr Giraldi cites are those not of some secretive “deep” state, but of The State. The State struts its blatant lies and abuse and corruption across the world stage not to deceive but to terrify and intimidate and to crush all possibility of revolution from the language itself. It makes it lies transparent and preposterous to oppress and demoralize the plebs with demonstration of power.

    "Is there anyway to entice the Deep State to do something productive instead of war?"

    The Deep State is formed by psychopaths that are longing for money and power. Peace is not profitable and thus doomed.

    I agree mostly to that. I still think that all avenues have not been explored. We have learned that protests, evangelism against the deep state, and democracy do not work very well. If they can’t be enticed to pursue other profitable sources of income then there is no solution besides bankruptcy and someone else’s deep state out competes them, possibly reducing them and their empire to radioactive rubble.

    Hmm...I don't think you've weighed your options, in fact, I don't think you've given any thought to alternative actions you could be taking. Instead of entertaining silly thoughts like that, take a look at some alternative forms of action that you CAN take to fight the NWO. For example...You COULD become what I call a 'Citizen Operative'. What is a Citizen Operative? A Citizen Operative is a person who has trained him/herself to take independent actions in the real world in order to fight against tyranny. Some good Hollywood examples of the 'Citizen Operative' type characters would be Forest Whitaker's character in the movie "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai"; and Rooney Mara's character, "Lisbeth Salander", in the movie "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". All it takes is a little bit of training (well, a lot of training...depends on how far you want to take it) and a lot of practice. ANYONE ('cept retards, but you're not a retard) can take these actions...

    1. learn how to do Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training...this is THE most important skill you can learn. Practice 2-3 times everyday and in 4-6 months you'll be able to induce a moderate level (Beta) of the hypnotic trance-state. The tricky part is writing scripts to use in hypnosis...plenty of good books on the subject, though. I recommend the "Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestions and Metaphors" by D. Corydon Hammond Ph.D. Here's a free PDF on Hypnotic scripts...

    http://thehypnostore.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Script-Book-volume-1.pdf

    You can also learn and apply the techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). These advance techniques will dramatically improve your ability to manipulate your behaviors.

    2. Buy, or get access to, a flotation tank (sensory depravation tank). Commercial float tanks run anywhere from $9,000 - $30,000. If you don't have that kinda cash lying around, check around the nearest big city for a "relaxation spa" Float tank sessions usually run about $50 for a one hour session...but, for $250-$300 a month you can get unlimited float sessions each month. Or, if you're good with tools, you can build your own tank.

    Flotation tanks offer the very best environment for doing Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training and meditation, because it's super simple to achieve a very profound level of mental, physical, and emotional relaxation in them. By doing Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training in a float tank you can easily achieve a somnambulistic (Deep Theta) trance-state. With a good hypnotic script, you can disrupt and remove unwanted patterns of behavior, and "download" new, more desirable, behavioral patterns into your bio-computer. For example, you could alter your behaviors to include the ability to remain perfectly calm under extreme pressure...when I get into a fight (even when my opponent is shrieking (joint-locks are extremely painful) and thrashing about) I remain as calm as a Hindu cow throughout the entire event. ANY behavior can be manipulated...use your imagination.

    If you want to take this to the absolute highest level, you can introduce a binaural-beat frequency generator, and certain pharmaceutical compounds, to the mix.

    2. learn how to do lock picking...tons of free info on the interwebs; you can get practice locks for about $50 bucks. Practice 2-3 hours each day and in 3-4 months you'll be proficient in that skill. It's a lot easier than you think.

    3. buy some surveillance equipment and learn how to use it...you'll need the ability to gather 'actionable' intel. It's possible to learn every trick and technique that the best Private Investigators use in their operations...it's easier than you think. Good quality surveillance equipment is expensive, but it's worth every penny, in my opinion.

    Of course, there are many other skills you could acquire if you wanted to, but the aforementioned activities are the basic skills of the Citizen Operative. I've given you all the information necessary to remold yourself into whatever you want to be...all you have to do is apply yourself. USE your imagination! I'll leave you with a quote by Dr. John Lilly, the inventor of the floatation tank...

    "In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the mind, there are no limits...In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network's mind there are no limits."

    The phrase “deep state” originated in and was often applied to Turkey... where the nation’s security services and governing elite traditionally pursued the same chauvinistic and inward-looking agenda both domestically and in foreign affairs no matter who was prime minister.

    ... deep state activities ... are frequently conducted through connivance with politicians who are able to provide cover for the activity ...
     

    There seems a contradiction here. If the deep state operates independently of the prime minister, how can it have cover from politicians. Only if there is a weak prime minister, presumably.

    It seems more likely that the politicians, meaning in effect the prime ministers or heads of government, instigate or tolerate illegal action by the security services and police when such action serves their political objectives.

    Examples that come to mind are reliance by the Rooseveldt Government on the Mafia for security in the New York dockyards during WW2, or the reliance by right-wing politicians in Europe on the Gladio network to suppress Communist influence in Italy and elsewhere.

    Presumably the same arrangement, providing the political leadership with deniability in the event the perpetrators are identified, applied in the case of some or all terrorist attacks in the US, e.g., the first and second WTC attacks (under Clinton and Bush, respectively), and the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing (under Clinton), etc.

    What would be interesting to know is whether there are significant deep state forces in the US today that are not subject to government direction and control. Propelling Donald Trump to a position of power, perhaps. That would certainly explain the ongoing Republicrat coagulation, with Shrubs and Bushes now joining with the Clintons and Obamas to defeat the Republican presidential nominee.

    It would also be interesting to know more of competing deep state groups, the Mormon Mafia, for example, the Jews for genocide of EuroAmerica, Hispanics to make America Mexico again, etc., and to understand how these groups are being used by the Obama administration.

    What would be interesting to know is whether there are significant deep state forces in the US today that are not subject to government direction and control. Propelling Donald Trump to a position of power, perhaps.

    In August 2012, Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that four women were arrested for praying in the women’s section of the Wailing Wall. After keeping them under lock for half-a-day, the Jewish security police released them on the condition that they would not enter the area for praying for the next 50 days. If any of those women decided to go back on their promise, she could face up to 18 months in jail under Israeli law for “being danger to public peace”.

    What would be interesting to know is whether there are significant deep state forces in the US today that are not subject to government direction and control. Propelling Donald Trump to a position of power, perhaps.
     
    Is that a deliberate misrepresentation of the article? Everybody knows that Trump doesn't belong to the Deep State. I presume you do too. So why misrepresent the situation?

    Actually, it is a very good question to ask what forces within deep state are behind Trump. I have asked it since July 2015, one months after June 2015 Trump speech. How did he know that immigrations will be the topic # 1? At that time even Orban of Hungary did not seem to know.

    The trouble with this article is its extremely vague description of the term deep state. As the author uses the term, it could be just about anything or nothing. "Every country has a deep state of some kind, we are told," a very broad statement supported by no evidence whatever. We are told that Britain has its "old boy network", while America has its "establishment," but that fails to tell us what we need to know: How monolithic is the British "old boy network", for example. Is it really just one group or does it refer to any one of multiple networks, formal, informal or totally casual? I once received extremely valuable legal advice on a business matter from a top City of London lawyer entirely free (actually it cost me a case of Dom Perignon) because I was an old school friend. Does that make me a part of the "old boy network" or a member of the "Deep State"? And I remember a financial crisis in Britain during the 60's, I think it was, when a banker explained that his firm had not helped out a failing financial institution because the failing firm's directors "hadn't gone to Eton." Does that mean the British deep state is made up entirely of old Etonians?

    The reality surely is that in any state there are people of influence who tend to work with other people of influence with whom they happen to be connected by ties of blood, education, society affiliation (e.g., a masonic lodge) or employment — whether in business, government or the security services, police or army. Any of these groups, if powerful enough, may come to rival or exceed the power of government in certain matters and thus constitute what might be called a deep state. But there is no reason to suppose that such a deep state is unitary or that it necessarily exists in every country. There is also the question of whether such so-called deep state factions act within the law or, as is said of Europe's Gladio network, constitute a criminal or terrorist organization.

    It was on the assumption that there is more than one non-governmental group with sufficient political influence to be referred to as a deep state faction, that I suggested Donald Trump to be the agent of such a group.

    Like you, I believe that Trump represents the interests of powerful groups in the US, which may be well organized to provide him with behind the scenes support (entirely legally, one may assume). Such groups most likely include a faction or factions within the military, police, intelligence and diplomatic services.

    I think that Trump started talking about the immigration topic as a result of Obama trying to take in the waves of Honduran children back in 2014. Here's an article from July of 2014 in which he's discussing it.

    People are flowing through Mexico. They are flowing through like crazy. I'm hearing stories where actually the parents come through in a different line all meet up in the United States and get plenty from the United States. It's a very serious problem. It's a horrible problem for children. But a very, very serious problem for this country, there's no question about it.

    How about a little wager?

    Let’s set an expiry date for this doomsday prediction of yours shall we?
     

    If it does, I hereby promise to publicly eat humble pie and apologise to you for as many occurrences of the breach as they obtain. You take the other side, meaning, if the breach of 45 does not occur, you apologise on these pages “Jr. ”
     
    A bet? But Sam, I thought that as a rule, economists NEVER have to face any consequences for their miserably failed predictions. Isn't that in the Economics 101 rule book? Rule #1: Thou shalt be as accurate as a newspaper horoscope. No? Not in there? I was sure that it was. Could've fooled me. You better double check if it is, just to be sure. But in the meantime...

    Fine! I'll be your huckleberry, sir. It's a bet! Game on!

    Well, according to all my scientific calculations of the DXY index and after making the proper adjustments for the fact that a seventh son of a seventh son hasn't been born yet to a vestal virgin during a blood moon sacrifice while Saturn is in its downward trajectory in the sky through the Pleaides star cluster... I think it's pretty safe to say that the breach of 45 will occur at noon tomorrow.

    4:20 at the latest.

    Bet you didn't think that I'd remember to make the vestal virgin adjustments, didn't you? What, do you think I'm some kind of idiot that doesn't know about blood moon DXY index sacrifices, Sam? I know ALL about'em. That's why my noon prediction is sure to be as accurate as all the nation's top Keynesian economists whose predictions always turn out to be as accurate as that of a weatherman's(but they sure can tell you all the reasons for why they were wrong, can't they?).

    Eat a light lunch tomorrow, Sam. I predict that you better save room for the Humble Pie that you'll be having for desert. ;)

    As you can clearly see, I have absolutely no idea when it's coming however I am sure as shit that it IS coming. You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. And due to the astronomically accelerating rate of debt, it's quite obvious which direction the wind is blowing. A hard rain is gonna fall. SOON.

    Things fall apart, Sam. And when they do they have a tendency to do it quickly. I suggest that you be careful of things that you say are "more than sustainable" and "unassailable".

    There is no way that you could be foolish enough to think that the dollar will continue in perpetuity. I think that we both agree that it is only a matter of WHEN. Here is why I think it's imminent.

    Their end game is Global Governance. To achieve that they need a Global Currency. Two things stand in the way of a Global Currency, the dominance of the dollar and China breaking off and forming their own(ie BRICS). On October 1, 2016 the Chinese Reminbi will be included in the IMF's basket of SDR's. China is now officially on board with a Global Currency. This leaves only the crashing of the dollar in the way. All the pieces are in place for a check-mate on the Grand Chessboard.

    I THINK that you think that this crashing of the dollar will be in a slow methodical fashion that is drawn out over a long period. But the key is that Global Governance is the end game and the only way to have the Global Population accept it is if things get so chaotic that the People see it as the only choice. The global reserve currency Dollar crashing dramatically is the only thing that can set off the whole world into chaos and revolution at the same time. Order out of Chaos. Permanent International Revolution a la Trotsky.

    I know that I have brought this up to you before, but I can't stress enough how important I think that China's inclusion in the SDR basket is in terms of a sign that the dollars collapse is imminent. They now have a global replacement currency.

    Too many people are being awakened by the internet. They are accelerating the collapse as evidenced by the unbelievable debt accumulated in recent years. Things are quickly spiraling towards a GLOBAL financial meltdown. There is a replacement currency in place. The time is nigh...

    THE exit strategy, are you
     
    http://cdn.smosh.com/sites/default/files/2015/03/pepe-book.jpg

    Hmm…I don’t think you’ve weighed your options, in fact, I don’t think you’ve given any thought to alternative actions you could be taking. Instead of entertaining silly thoughts like that, take a look at some alternative forms of action that you CAN take to fight the NWO. For example…You COULD become what I call a ‘Citizen Operative’. What is a Citizen Operative? A Citizen Operative is a person who has trained him/herself to take independent actions in the real world in order to fight against tyranny. Some good Hollywood examples of the ‘Citizen Operative’ type characters would be Forest Whitaker’s character in the movie “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai”; and Rooney Mara’s character, “Lisbeth Salander”, in the movie “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. All it takes is a little bit of training (well, a lot of training…depends on how far you want to take it) and a lot of practice. ANYONE (‘cept retards, but you’re not a retard) can take these actions…

    1. learn how to do Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training…this is THE most important skill you can learn. Practice 2-3 times everyday and in 4-6 months you’ll be able to induce a moderate level (Beta) of the hypnotic trance-state. The tricky part is writing scripts to use in hypnosis…plenty of good books on the subject, though. I recommend the “Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestions and Metaphors” by D. Corydon Hammond Ph.D. Here’s a free PDF on Hypnotic scripts…

    http://thehypnostore.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Script-Book-volume-1.pdf

    You can also learn and apply the techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). These advance techniques will dramatically improve your ability to manipulate your behaviors.

    2. Buy, or get access to, a flotation tank (sensory depravation tank). Commercial float tanks run anywhere from $9,000 – $30,000. If you don’t have that kinda cash lying around, check around the nearest big city for a “relaxation spa” Float tank sessions usually run about $50 for a one hour session…but, for $250-$300 a month you can get unlimited float sessions each month. Or, if you’re good with tools, you can build your own tank.

    Flotation tanks offer the very best environment for doing Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training and meditation, because it’s super simple to achieve a very profound level of mental, physical, and emotional relaxation in them. By doing Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training in a float tank you can easily achieve a somnambulistic (Deep Theta) trance-state. With a good hypnotic script, you can disrupt and remove unwanted patterns of behavior, and “download” new, more desirable, behavioral patterns into your bio-computer. For example, you could alter your behaviors to include the ability to remain perfectly calm under extreme pressure…when I get into a fight (even when my opponent is shrieking (joint-locks are extremely painful) and thrashing about) I remain as calm as a Hindu cow throughout the entire event. ANY behavior can be manipulated…use your imagination.

    If you want to take this to the absolute highest level, you can introduce a binaural-beat frequency generator, and certain pharmaceutical compounds, to the mix.

    2. learn how to do lock picking…tons of free info on the interwebs; you can get practice locks for about $50 bucks. Practice 2-3 hours each day and in 3-4 months you’ll be proficient in that skill. It’s a lot easier than you think.

    3. buy some surveillance equipment and learn how to use it…you’ll need the ability to gather ‘actionable’ intel. It’s possible to learn every trick and technique that the best Private Investigators use in their operations…it’s easier than you think. Good quality surveillance equipment is expensive, but it’s worth every penny, in my opinion.

    Of course, there are many other skills you could acquire if you wanted to, but the aforementioned activities are the basic skills of the Citizen Operative. I’ve given you all the information necessary to remold yourself into whatever you want to be…all you have to do is apply yourself. USE your imagination! I’ll leave you with a quote by Dr. John Lilly, the inventor of the floatation tank…

    “In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the mind, there are no limits…In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network’s mind there are no limits.”

    Ron Paul on the record-setting "aid" to Israel:

    So why is the US giving a rich and incredibly well-armed country a record amount of military aid?...

    Another reason is a very powerful lobby in Washington, AIPAC, that pressures Members of Congress to focus on Israel’s interests instead of US interests. Members of Congress should look at our economy, with effectively zero interest rates, an anemic non-recovery from the 2008 crash, historically low participation in the work force, and inflation eroding the value of the dollar and conclude that this might not be the best time to start handing out billions of dollars in foreign aid. Unfortunately most Members of Congress find it impossible to say no to special interest groups like AIPAC.

    Here’s a better aid package for Israel: free trade, travel, friendly relations, and no entangling alliances. Israel should be free to pursue its national interests and we should be free to pursue ours. If individual Americans feel compelled to provide assistance to Israel or any other country or cause overseas they should be allowed. But the rest of us should not be forced to do so. Trade, not aid.

    Hey geo,

    If what I read is correct this deal should be recognized as some sort of improvement.

    Improvement one was that all the money has to be spent on US manufactured weapons. IOW we won’t be giving them money to buy their own weapons from themselves.

    Improvement two was an agreement that they would not ask congress for any additional military aid.

    To me, item two is really bizarre. You have the Executive Branch signing an agreement and extracting a promise from a foreign entity that it (the foreign entity) will not use its political power with the Legislative Branch to abrogate the agreement.

    Not many people make the connection, but there was no Mexican immigration problems until after NAFTA destroyed Mexico's rural farm-based economy by cheap food produced on subsidized corporate farms on the US-side of the border being shipped into Mexico free of import duties. Noam Chomskey wrote an excellent article on the negative impact NAFTA had on the economy of both countries. It's worth noting that NAFTA was lobbied into legislative existence by Bill Clinton, a left-wing liberal, while being signed into law by George Bush, a right-wing conservative. With this being all anyone needs to know in determining that when it comes to One World Government, and global free trade, liberals and conservatives both answer to the same Zionist power structure.

    Seems far fetched to me. Who cares about the dollar except Americans. Sure it’s more convenient to use the dollar in international transactions than Bulgarians Levs or Ukrainian Hryvnias, but if they have to, people will cope nevertheless. When the US sanctioned Sudan, preventing Sudanese entities from transacting business in $US, we were paid promptly by a Sudanese customer in pounds sterling. No prob.

    Anyway, what’s crashing dramatically now is the globalist movement. Brexit in Britain to be followed by Trump in the US, and lot’s more to come — Le Pen and France, Italy quite likely, even the Germans may reawaken from their long imposed ant-nationalism and vote to serve their own interest on immigration, not the globalist interest that seeks to liquidate the German nation. So the tide is turning. Already the Brits are doing better after voting to exit the EU. The US will do much better under Trump’s promised nationalistic economic policy than under the Clinton/Bush/Obama Treason policy of trashing American jobs and destroying America’s industrial infrastructure.

    There can be absolutely no doubt that a drastic dollar collapse would cause disruptions in the supply chain of EVERY single country in the world.

    I support Trump also, but I think that it is a huge mistake to think that an entrenched power such as Globalism, which has spent centuries ingraining itself in positions of power, has been defeated. They will NOT go quietly into that night. I believe that the only reason that the nationalist movements we have seen around the globe have been ALLOWED to grow recently is because the powers that be know that the global financial meltdown is about to happen, so they are ALLOWING it into positions of power to have a scapegoat for the chaos to follow. "You see this mess people? This is what Nationalism gets you. Now come join our One World Government where we can protect you from the chaos which you forgot we created in the first place."

    If you doubt that Nationalism is being ALLOWED, ask yourself why Cameron put Brexit up for vote.

    That being said, I support Trump and believe in Nationalism 100% but the true test of it will come AFTER the global financial meltdown when the people have to be reminded that it was Globalism that bankrupted us and brought us to the point of destruction contrary to the propaganda that they are going to bombard us with blaming the Nationalist movements.

    Hey geo,

    If what I read is correct this deal should be recognized as some sort of improvement.

    Improvement one was that all the money has to be spent on US manufactured weapons. IOW we won't be giving them money to buy their own weapons from themselves.

    Improvement two was an agreement that they would not ask congress for any additional military aid.

    To me, item two is really bizarre. You have the Executive Branch signing an agreement and extracting a promise from a foreign entity that it (the foreign entity) will not use its political power with the Legislative Branch to abrogate the agreement.

    To me, item two is really bizarre.

    @Anonymous Smith
    Hmm...I don't think you've weighed your options, in fact, I don't think you've given any thought to alternative actions you could be taking. Instead of entertaining silly thoughts like that, take a look at some alternative forms of action that you CAN take to fight the NWO. For example...You COULD become what I call a 'Citizen Operative'. What is a Citizen Operative? A Citizen Operative is a person who has trained him/herself to take independent actions in the real world in order to fight against tyranny. Some good Hollywood examples of the 'Citizen Operative' type characters would be Forest Whitaker's character in the movie "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai"; and Rooney Mara's character, "Lisbeth Salander", in the movie "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". All it takes is a little bit of training (well, a lot of training...depends on how far you want to take it) and a lot of practice. ANYONE ('cept retards, but you're not a retard) can take these actions...

    1. learn how to do Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training...this is THE most important skill you can learn. Practice 2-3 times everyday and in 4-6 months you'll be able to induce a moderate level (Beta) of the hypnotic trance-state. The tricky part is writing scripts to use in hypnosis...plenty of good books on the subject, though. I recommend the "Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestions and Metaphors" by D. Corydon Hammond Ph.D. Here's a free PDF on Hypnotic scripts...

    http://thehypnostore.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Script-Book-volume-1.pdf

    You can also learn and apply the techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). These advance techniques will dramatically improve your ability to manipulate your behaviors.

    2. Buy, or get access to, a flotation tank (sensory depravation tank). Commercial float tanks run anywhere from $9,000 - $30,000. If you don't have that kinda cash lying around, check around the nearest big city for a "relaxation spa" Float tank sessions usually run about $50 for a one hour session...but, for $250-$300 a month you can get unlimited float sessions each month. Or, if you're good with tools, you can build your own tank.

    Flotation tanks offer the very best environment for doing Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training and meditation, because it's super simple to achieve a very profound level of mental, physical, and emotional relaxation in them. By doing Self-Hypnosis/Autogenic Training in a float tank you can easily achieve a somnambulistic (Deep Theta) trance-state. With a good hypnotic script, you can disrupt and remove unwanted patterns of behavior, and "download" new, more desirable, behavioral patterns into your bio-computer. For example, you could alter your behaviors to include the ability to remain perfectly calm under extreme pressure...when I get into a fight (even when my opponent is shrieking (joint-locks are extremely painful) and thrashing about) I remain as calm as a Hindu cow throughout the entire event. ANY behavior can be manipulated...use your imagination.

    If you want to take this to the absolute highest level, you can introduce a binaural-beat frequency generator, and certain pharmaceutical compounds, to the mix.

    2. learn how to do lock picking...tons of free info on the interwebs; you can get practice locks for about $50 bucks. Practice 2-3 hours each day and in 3-4 months you'll be proficient in that skill. It's a lot easier than you think.

    3. buy some surveillance equipment and learn how to use it...you'll need the ability to gather 'actionable' intel. It's possible to learn every trick and technique that the best Private Investigators use in their operations...it's easier than you think. Good quality surveillance equipment is expensive, but it's worth every penny, in my opinion.

    Of course, there are many other skills you could acquire if you wanted to, but the aforementioned activities are the basic skills of the Citizen Operative. I've given you all the information necessary to remold yourself into whatever you want to be...all you have to do is apply yourself. USE your imagination! I'll leave you with a quote by Dr. John Lilly, the inventor of the floatation tank...

    "In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the mind, there are no limits...In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network's mind there are no limits."

    Hey Mr. Smith,

    that was a rather entertaining read (as usual ; )

    limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the mind, there are no limits…In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network’s mind there are no limits.”

    thumbs up

    I participate here as one lone dendrite in the fabric of our collective consciousness. The plasticity of our ‘reality’ are intertwined and malleable, and we exist to facilitate augmentation of the individual and collective, like a synapse to the mind

    one is the other is the other one.. and so forth

    “Lisbeth Salander”,

    that absolutely must be a twist on Lysander Spooner – one of the greatest minds (and spirits!) of all

    cheers !

    You're describing the self-serving bureaucracy, but the Deep State is something (and somewhere) else again.

    Mike Lofgren ambles around in this piece, but says finally, "I use the term to mean a hybrid association of elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry that is effectively able to govern the United States without reference to the consent of the governed as expressed through the formal political process." He cites the 3 nodes of power as Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and DC.

    http://billmoyers.com/2014/02/21/anatomy-of-the-deep-state/

    “You’re describing the self-serving bureaucracy….”

    My dear Robin G, would that be the bureaucracy – which includes the DoD – that administers Government contracts with Silicon Valley, Wall Street, defense contractors, NGOs, all of which swap big shot and technical employees in a revolving-door clusterf_ck as suits the needs of the Deep/Administrative State and its co-corrupt among the Globalist Davos Class? Just as the Fed swaps personnel with Wall Street? Just as universities and corporations swap personnel with the Fed, with Wall Street, with media, with the Deep/Administrative State? Just as law firms, corporations, Wall Street, universities, and more such swap shysters with the courts?

    Your Mr. Lofgren left out media – which I call Enemedia-Pravda – which form a power node that does the bidding of the Deep/Administrative State/Globalist Davos Class, because media are owned by the Globalist Davos Establishment, which has owned a submission hold over media since the FCC (the Deep/Administrative State!) deregulated communications ownership. If media do not form a node of power, then I don’t what else would form a power node.

    The Deep/Administrative State is the clearinghouse and fig leaf for the ambitions of all the other power nodes which must get approval – or a mere knowing hands-off wink – from the Administrative State to do and get what those other power nodes want to do and get to do. The Administrative State furnishes – for a price- the cover story, the federal-approval fig leaf for the other power nodes which, by themselves, sans Administrative State sanction, cannot act openly on their own ambitions.

    I think that Trump started talking about the immigration topic as a result of Obama trying to take in the waves of Honduran children back in 2014. Here's an article from July of 2014 in which he's discussing it.

    People are flowing through Mexico. They are flowing through like crazy. I'm hearing stories where actually the parents come through in a different line all meet up in the United States and get plenty from the United States. It's a very serious problem. It's a horrible problem for children. But a very, very serious problem for this country, there's no question about it.

    Not many people make the connection, but there was no Mexican immigration problems until after NAFTA destroyed Mexico’s rural farm-based economy by cheap food produced on subsidized corporate farms on the US-side of the border being shipped into Mexico free of import duties. Noam Chomskey wrote an excellent article on the negative impact NAFTA had on the economy of both countries. It’s worth noting that NAFTA was lobbied into legislative existence by Bill Clinton, a left-wing liberal, while being signed into law by George Bush, a right-wing conservative.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America's Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

    You do realize that Americans are, in fact, ‘settlers on occupied land’ as well? As are Mexicans, “Canadians and Australians? Calm down you’re overthinking this.

    I don't disagree. In speaking of the collapse of the globalist movement, I was thinking only of the current trend. Writing in the mid-19th Century, Dostoevsky and Nietzche predicted the emergence of a global system, and the Brits have been working on it directly, or as junior partners to the US, for over 100 years.

    But I'm not convinced that Cameron expected to lose the Brexit vote. It seems he backed himself into a corner on the vote, having promised it in response massive public opposition to the EU's Shengen agreement that brought a genocidal immigrant flood that exceeded 600,000 people in 2015. I say genocidal, because rapid population growth has driven housing costs up and incomes at the lower end down, creating mass poverty and suppressed indigenous fertility (aided by government propaganda in the guise of sex "education" that teaches that the only sexual vice is reproduction). Immigration to Britain has thus become a process of population replacement, with the English now a minority in London and a growing list of other cities and urban areas.

    About this, I claim no special expertise, but how could the value of the US$ collapse overnight? OK, so the BRICS have started trading among themselves in their own national currencies instead of US dollars, but what does that mean? It means that those countries will hold smaller US$ reserves. So the dollar falls in value a bit, which increases US international competitiveness, which in part, will counteract the downtrend in the value of the dollar.

    In fact, it seems to me it is only because of the incredible inefficiency (probably deliberate) of financial institutions that the US$ has not long since ceased to be a reserve currency. In an age of computers, the Internet and encrypted electronic communications, there seems no theoretical reason why an exporter in Canada, say, cannot readily accept Sudanese Pounds, Turkish Lira, or Tuvaluan dollars. It certainly cannot be beyond the ingenuity of mankind to create an online currency market dealing 24/7 in every currency in the World. With such a system in place, a transition away from the US dollar as the medium for the transaction of international trade would occur rapidly. The dollar might still be held as a hedge against exchange rate fluctuations, but almost certainly not in anything like the quantity held today by central banks and corporations.

    For the US, complete loss of reserve currency status by the dollar would result in substantial dollar devaluation, since something like a half trillion dollars worth of yearly imports would have to be paid for by real exports, not digital dollars. But dollar devaluation would raise the domestic price level and thus provide massive stimulus to US manufacturing and many service sectors, as imports were priced out of the market, and exports stimulated.

    LOL. It's that kind of idiocy that accounts for the Brexit vote, the rising tide of Trump and the re-emergence of not only French but even German nationalism.

    Nationalism is simply democracy in action.

    Democracy must be local to have meaning. Where globalization means mass population replacement, income reduction, housing shortages, rising taxation to pay for a necessary expansion of infrastructure, it sharply conflicts with the perceived interests of the indigenous population and creates a reaction.

    So bring it on, the more song and dance and PC bullying about immigration the greater the push-back will be.

Brainwashed that don't even realize what they are supporting. Put a couple puppet celebrities in front of people and they'll cheer for ANYTHING.

    And so the indoctrinations continue.

    Seriously, check it out on MSNBC if you get a chance. A truly terrifying spectacle when you think about what your watching.

    Re: “Global Citizen” festival from Central Park

    LOL. It’s that kind of idiocy that accounts for the Brexit vote, the rising tide of Trump and the re-emergence of not only French but even German nationalism.

    Nationalism is simply democracy in action.

    Democracy must be local to have meaning. Where globalization means mass population replacement, income reduction, housing shortages, rising taxation to pay for a necessary expansion of infrastructure, it sharply conflicts with the perceived interests of the indigenous population and creates a reaction.

    So bring it on, the more song and dance and PC bullying about immigration the greater the push-back will be.

    “If you doubt that Nationalism is being ALLOWED, ask yourself why Cameron put Brexit up for vote.”

    The standard explanation is that it was part of the Conservative manifesto. The Tories promised a referendum. The usual explanation of why they did this was as a sop to nationalists within the Conservative Party, plus a minor party advocating the UK leave the EU had been formed as was competing for their traditional voters. In fact if UKIP had taken a couple more percentage points from them in 2015 they would not have gotten a majority, which was kind of a razor thin, last minute thing.

    Note that unlike in the US, there are traditions in the UK both for votes to be cast by paper ballots and counted by independent civil servants, and for parties to at least try to keep their campaign promises, so its harder to game these things there.

    However, I think there is a possibility that Cameron personally wanted the UK to at least threaten the EU, and the British establishment in general has soured on the project. However, the Americans want them in.

    On the dollar as reserve currency, I think you will see global trade go away first, then the dollar as reserve currency, and not the other way around. The only way for it to happen otherwise is that the US becomes a pariah state, to the point of being kicked out of international organizations. And this probably doesn’t happen without the US starting a nuclear war, in which case global trade would go away anyway.

  152. This article shows clearly that the Ron Paul Institute is Ethically and Intellectually sound.

    However it may be biased a bit as the Turkish Deep State is far less threatening and damaging than the USA Deep State because it is localized, while the USA Deep state is literally raping the WHOLE WORLD.

    Trump may be justified in building his border wall to keep illegal invasion and drugs out of the USA. But the World is also justified in building some sort of wall to keep the Illegal Invasion of the World by the USA from spilling all over the globe under the lame excuse of “it is to the Best Interest of the USA”. It would be science fiction like dome including electronic blocking in order to achieve the purpose.

    On a given day at 12 GMT maybe the people of the REST of the world should all stand up and yell: Yankee STAY HOME.

    Exactly! It is my opinion that 9/11 was the NWO's reaction to the advent of the interweb, and it's explosive early growth. They desperately needed a way of accelerating the rollout of their Totalitarian Police State infrastructure in order to get out in front of our learning curve...and that is exactly what they got with the Patriot Act.

    It's like I said before...the more we learn, the easier it is to wake sheople up. Unfortunately, the more people who join the ranks of the awakened the more perilous our situation becomes.

    I believe, and I think the evidence is quite clear now, that we are lurching toward a race war...this, of course, has been, and is being, fomented by the Jews. This will lead to a "frantic" call to confiscate all long guns in the country. This will be a pivotal point for not only us, here in American, but for the whole of the human race. If we lose our long weapons - our ability to fight back - it will be 'game over' at that point. So, the best possible thing to happen to us would be for the race war to evolve into a Civil War...the sooner the better!

    I highly disagree with this sentiment because there is absolutely nothing to be gained from a race war and I feel that we should all unite as Americans, first and foremost, to take on the traitorous Globalists that are trying to destroy this nation's sovereignty. It's a huge mistake to fall for their divide and conquer tactics.

This will lead to a "frantic" call to confiscate all long guns in the country. This will be a pivotal point for not only us, here in American, but for the whole of the human race. If we lose our long weapons - our ability to fight back - it will be 'game over' at that point. So, the best possible thing to happen to us would be for the race war to evolve into a Civil War...the sooner the better!

    So, the best possible thing to happen to us would be for the race war to evolve into a Civil War…the sooner the better!

    I highly disagree with this sentiment because there is absolutely nothing to be gained from a race war and I feel that we should all unite as Americans, first and foremost, to take on the traitorous Globalists that are trying to destroy this nation’s sovereignty. It’s a huge mistake to fall for their divide and conquer tactics.

    Thank you, Jr, for providing that article-link in your previous post.

    I didn't mean to imply that we, the people, should have a race war...I was infering that the NWO agents, here in the US, Goerge Soros being the main culpret, are trying to foment a race war. So, since it seems like that is exactly what's going to happen, and since they (US gov puppets) will use that as an excuse to seize our long-weapons, that we should fight back with all our might...thus a race war becomes a Civil War. We will only be able to take our country back through a Revolution, there is no political solution available to us at this point; 50 years ago, maybe, but not today, they're dug-in too deep.

    They have been applying their divide and conqure tactics for decades now...and they have been highly successful in their efforts! The primary reason for their great success, in all areas, is that no one really ever stood up to them...they have operated with complete impunity for more than 235 years.

    Let me stop there and ask you this question: who are these Globalists you speak of? I know about Zbig, of course, he's one of their high level thinkers...but that's all he is, a thinker, he doesn't call the shots. Who, specifically, are the Globalist (NWO) overlords? I already know who they are, I just need to know that you know who they are. Names and addresses, please.

    Another extraordinary aspect of America's Deep State is the unique influence involving just one foreign power and its impact on all US-generated entertainment, information and news.

    That foreign power is Israel.

    This small and distant nation has colonized American mass media, if not all of Washington.

    Powerful Zionists own and manage most American media companies. They filter the information and shape the narrative.

    Virtually everything that Americans see and hear on TV or read in their major newspapers has been vetted, edited, omitted or magnified by crypto-Israelis. This is unique.

    Most Deep State networks are domestically based. But a huge part of America's Deep State is centered outside of the US.

    As a consequence, US policies and modern American attitudes have been steered, massaged, and corrupted by extra-national forces--not just rich and powerful Americans.

    Yet most Americans remain utterly clueless about this head-spinning phenomena.

    Cyrpto-Israelis are a potent, untouchable and unacknowledged force in America. They not only enjoy immense access and influence, but even immunity due to taboos involving 'anti-Semitism'.

    Crypto-Israelis constitute a State within our Deep State. Already they have achieved horrific levels of influence. The destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria are just three examples. But they're still not done.

    These foreign agents are determined to use the US economic, diplomatic and military power to settle ancient feuds involving the Jewish people. Much pain lies ahead.

    Iran, Russia and Lebanon are in Zio-America's cross hairs. And don't forget Palestine.

    Even though US forces have slaughtered over one million Muslims since 911, Americans have been manipulated into believing that hyper-powerful, uber-nuclear, Empire America is the hapless victim. They hate us not for our bombs and serial invasions, but for our freedoms.

    This national delusion is a product of Israel's Deep State inside of American media.

    As US cities decay and millions of foreigners crash in though America's southern tier, Big Media wants Americans to be fearful of Muslims, the ones still living anyway.

    Consequently, Americans feel threatened by our victims and those who sympathize with them, even though these wounded individuals are powerless before Zio-American might.

    For cover, Israeli-centric news bites suggest that these hostile Muslims have suddenly been 'radicalized' by ancient religious texts. Few references are made to the continuous US invasions and interventions that have annihilated entire countries. It's all just a coincidence.

    This 'Islamic threat' has put Joe Sixpack in the mood for another Mideast war. Stop those raghead invaders. I wanna watch my football game!

    Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

    Let's face it: the beer-swilling, hot dog eating goyim are pretty dumb.

    America's Deep State Zionist malignancy will not end well.

    Good call, well said. A State within a Deep State, perfect.
