As a former intelligence officer, I find it amusing to read articles in the mainstream media that blithely report how the latest international outrages are undoubtedly the work of CIA and the rest of the U.S. government’s national security alphabet soup. The recurring claim that the CIA is somehow running the world by virtue of a vast conspiracy that includes the secret intelligence agencies of a number of countries, using blackmail and other inducements to corrupt vulnerable politicians and opinion makers, has entered into the DNA of journalists worldwide, frequently without any evidence that the current crop of spies is capable of doing anything more complicated than getting out of bed in the morning.

One problem with the theory about total global dominance through espionage is the sheer logistics of it all. Directing political and economic developments in two hundred nations simultaneously must require a lot of space and a large staff. Is there a huge office hidden in Langley? Or the Pentagon? Or in the White House West Wing itself? Or is it in one of the secure facilities that have been popping up like mushrooms just off of the Dulles Toll Road in Herndon Virginia?

To provide evidence that intelligence agencies extend their tentacles just about everywhere, the other claim that is nearly always made is that all former spooks are part of the conspiracy, as once you learn the secret handshake to join CIA, NSA or the FBI you never stop being “one of them.” Well, that might be true in some cases but the majority of former spooks are quite happy to be “former,” and one might also observe that many voices in the anti-war movement, such as it is, come from intelligence, law enforcement or military backgrounds. Of course, the conspiracy theorists will explain that away by claiming that it is a conspiracy within a conspiracy, making the dissidents little better than double agents or gatekeepers who are put in place to make sure that the opposition doesn’t become too effective.

Given the fact that how the so-called American “Deep State” actually gets together and plots is unknown, one would have to concede that it is an organization without much structure, unlike the original Turkish Deep State (Derin Devlet), which coined the phrase, that actually met and had centralized planning. I would suggest that the problem is one of definitions and it also helps to know how the national security state is structured and what its legitimate mission is. The CIA, for example, employs about 20,000 people, nearly all of whom work in various divisions that collect information (spying), analysis, technology and also are divided into staffs that work transnationally on issues like terrorism, narcotics, and nuclear proliferation. The overwhelming majority of those employees have political views and vote but there is a consensus that what their work entails is apolitical. The actual politics of how policy comes out the other end is confined to a very small group at the top, some of whom are themselves political appointees.

To be sure, one can and probably should oppose the policies of regime change that the Agency is engaged in worldwide but there is one important consideration that has to be understood. Those policies are set by the country’s civilian leadership (president, secretary of state and national security council) and they are imposed on CIA by its own political leadership. The Agency does not hold referenda among its employees to determine which foreign policy option is preferable any more than soldiers in the 101st Airborne are consulted when they receive orders to deploy.

Nearly all current and former intelligence officers that I know are, in fact, opposed to the politics of U.S. global dominance that have been pretty much in place since 9/11, most particularly as evidenced by the continued conflict with Russia, the ramping up of aggression with China, and the regime change policies relating to Syria, Iran and Venezuela. Those officers often consider the invasions and exercise of “maximum pressure” to have been failures. Those policies were supported by truculent language, sanctions and displays of military readiness by the Trump Administration but it now appears clear that they will all be continued in one form or another under President Joe Biden, likely to include even more aggression against Russia through proxies in Ukraine and Georgia.

The officers engaged in such operations also observe that regime change has basically come out of the closet since 2001. George W. Bush announced that there was a “new sheriff in town” and the gloves would be coming off. Things that the intelligence agencies used to do are now done right out in the open, using military resources against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria while the biggest change of all, in Ukraine in 2014, was largely engineered by Victoria Nuland at the State Department. The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) was also active in Russia supporting opposition parties until the Kremlin forced them to leave the country.

So, it is fair to say that the Deep State is not a function of either the CIA or the FBI, but at the same time the involvement of John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey in the plot to destroy Donald Trump is disturbing, as the three men headed the Agency, the Office of National Intelligence and Bureau. They appear to have played critical leadership roles in carrying out this conspiracy and they may not have operated on their own. Almost certainly what they may have done would have been either explicitly or implicitly authorized by the former President of the United States, Barack Obama, and others in his national security team.

It is now known that President Barack Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan created a secret interagency Trump Task Force in early 2016. Rather than working against genuine foreign threats, this Task Force played a critical role in creating and feeding the meme that Donald Trump was a tool of the Russians and a puppet of President Vladimir Putin, a claim that still surfaces regularly to this day. Working with Clapper, Brennan fabricated the narrative that “Russia had interfered in the 2016 election.” Brennan and Clapper promoted that tale even though they knew very well that Russia and the United States have carried out a broad array of covert actions against each other, including information operations, for the past seventy years, but they pretended that what happened in 2016 was qualitatively and substantively different even though the “evidence” produced to support that claim is weak to nonexistent.

I would, nevertheless, argue that their behavior, though it exploited intelligence resources, was not intrinsic to the organizations that they led, that the three of them were part and parcel of the real Deep State, which consists of a consensus view on running the country that is held by nearly all of the elements that together make up the American Establishment, with its political power focused in Washington and its financial center in New York City. It should come as no surprise that those government officials who are complicit in the process are often personally rewarded with highly paid sinecure jobs in financial services, which they know nothing about, when they “retire.”

The danger posed by the Deep State, or, if you choose, the Establishment, is that it wields immense power but is unelected and unaccountable. Even though it does not actually meet in secret, it does operate through relationships that are not transparent and as the media is part of it, there is little chance that its activity will be exposed. One notes that while the Deep State is mentioned frequently in the national media there has been little effort to identify its components and how it operates.

Viewed in that fashion, the argument that there exists a cohesive group of power brokers who really run the country and are even able to coopt those who are ostensibly dedicated to keeping the country safe becomes much more plausible without denigrating the many honest people who are employed by the national security agencies. The Deep State conspirators don’t have to meet to plot as they all understand very well what has to be done to maintain their supremacy. That is the real danger. The Biden Administration will surely demonstrate over the next several months that the Deep State is still with us and more powerful than ever as it operates both inside and outside the government itself. And the real danger comes from the Democrats now in charge, who are if anything more given to playing with consensus politics that involve phony threats than were the Republicans.

  1. Ah ha, now that you have stuck your head in a hornets’ nest get ready to get stung and defend yourself. I actually believe that the top echelons of all government work for themselves and not their governments and blackmail is their chief tool.

  2. Jimmy1969 says:

    H R Haldeman in his book The Ends of Power has a great chapter on the headline question here. But to address the question properly necessitates at least a graduate degree in Political Science or Public Administration. It is a very complicated story…this deep state thing, ridden with paradoxes and contradictions; I have studied the idea for 40 years and could write a PhD thesis on it. There are tens of thousands of complex articles buried up in University Libraries that analyse the topic…go and look a few up. They are balanced and objective for the most part. Giraldi is a broken down frustrated man, shunned by the academic community that he covets the respect of. Most of his articles would not get a C on a first year course in civics.

    Every CEO or head of a Government Department wears two hats. First one is looking out for his own best interests and secondly looking out for the best interests of the company of the country. They are rarely if ever the same. This conflict underlies the botched investigations of JFK, MLK, and RFK assassinations. Hoover and Helmes always had their career interests in mind around those horrific events which were most certainly planned and executed by organized crime, in direct conflict with the directives of elected officials or the best interests of it’s citizens. But when the current crop of CIA, FBI and military intelligence officials plotted against Trump, another dubious product of the electoral college, they were doing the country a great service, even though their Russian interference story was an example of exaggeration in the extreme. It is ridiculous to suppose Russian hackers have much influence compared to the Republican Party, Cambridge Analytics or Brad Pascal.
    The deep State is real and evil, especially when it is engaged in overthrowing democratic governments and assassinating their leaders. Especially when they conspire to torture real and imaginary enemies. Even more tragic is that these unelected scum are never held accountable for their henious crimes.

    “…to address the question properly necessitates at least a graduate degree in Political Science or Public Administration…I have studied the idea for 40 years and could write a PhD thesis on it…”

    Clap clap clap… 40 years of study and that’s your contribution?
    Any child that has ever managed to stand up to a bully, instead of buckling under or withdraw to plot fantastic revenge, can analyse the “deep state” for himself, without help or permission from academics with their ass up their head (sic).
    Every political theory is a religion, every political party is a criminal mafia gang. Mix in some drunken orgies with dirty prossies and/or children, film and record, use evidence to keep the gang members in line. That’s how politicians are made.
    Greed, stupid family members promoted to positions of authority, and, most importantly, perpetuation of the scam called ‘international finance’, and no conspiracy or Deep State is needed.
    I don’t know if Giraldi ever bothered to study political science, but one thing is certain, he certainly would not pass first semester in any class run by a dweeb that thinks his view is the only correct one. That’s why we read him, and not some dude with a stick up his ass that “could write a thesis” but didn’t, so he references “thousands of complex articles” written by people who would “fail first year” if they did not regurgitate the party line for their Bolshevik professors.
    You Bolshies really have a bee in your bonnet lately, demanding only qualified people dare open their mouths. Was that a directive from your non-existent headquarters?

  8. Polemos says:

    The Deep State conspirators don’t have to meet to plot as they all understand very well what has to be done to maintain their supremacy. That is the real danger.

    Orwell’s dogmas of The Party each correspond to the different hierarchies within the Party. The excluded proles typify “Ignorance is Strength”. The Outer Party typify “Freedom is Slavery.” The Inner Party typify “War is Peace.”

    It is the constant in-fighting, back-stabbing, shifting of alliances, and forming power-sharing arrangements that brings peace to the overall Party structure, while at the same time excluding all the other people from the Power necessary to effect real political and social change puts those people into war with the same structure without fully realizing how they participate in Power’s expression. Hence, manipulating hatred and love for the Other and one’s Self alternates as necessary for either obscuring how this hierarchical Power structure works (whether a death cult, socioeconomic cult, or ethnocentric cult, each of them formally operate through the same totalitarian logic) or activating spiritual collective action for the service of that Power —it is fundamentally, and paradoxically, the case that Belief and the Will to align reality to that Belief are what change the world. By being at War with one another, all the Inner Party members, with their own unique expression of otherwise genetic and cultural trends, collectively act to preserve the Power structure while evolving it and themselves towards a “sustained growth” model: competition and tenacity, collusion and flexibility, ruthlessness and cleverness, erupt naturally among all humans, and traits conducive to the Power structure when selected over time also preserve what selects those traits. That is the Peace they are after, the Peace of never seeing the chaos and overturning and natural extinction that will follow when the Power structure, as all structures do, collapses.

    Big Brother, being essentially a false god, typifies “God is Power.” For the rule of God to be absolute, Power’s self-expression must also be absolute. Each individual in the Inner Party knows there is no God but Power yet each also knows they are not its only prophet — they are collectively the living body of Power as God. Each of them is a vessel for what calls Itself Big Brother, their inner void pneumatically filled with a spirit to serve the Power they carry in themselves. It is a rush to vanquish one’s enemies; it is thrilling to defeat a rival; it is a high form of love to destroy something utterly; because all of these things reveal the Beauty, Truth, and Justice of Power. So the story goes.

    On the flip side, I think Peter Dale Scott’s done an excellent job of demonstrating his version of the Deep State, not so much as institutional bureaucracies effecting policy as part of the overt governmental structures but rather as covert activity linking together “deep events” (JFK assassination, September Eleventh 2001, as well as longer events, such as drug smuggling out of Southeast Asia to pay for further illegal and unethical activities) as themselves dramatic changes in how overt governmental structures operate, coordinate, and define their own relation to the people those structures purport to govern.

    Or, corruption. Ponerology.

  9. The Deep State is only possible if it doesn’t have leaks. The inner circle have to take their secrets to the grave, like a criminal family.

    Of course the NSA knew Epstein was a honey pot espionage operation. Nobody in the know will break ranks and reveal the truth, because it would be bad for their health. The Deep State has to operate on mafia-level personal trust, family dynasties and bloodline loyalty.

    An alleged leaked telephone conversation between the CIA’s former director George Tenet and former late Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh released on Tuesday by the Houthi-affiliated Al-Masirah channel purportedly contains audio of Tenet requesting Saleh release an Al-Qaeda member.

    According to Abdul Qader Al-Shami, the deputy head of Yemen’s Houthi-aligned Security and Intelligence Services, the Al-Qaeda member in question was the US-born cleric-turned Al-Qaeda propagandist and leader Anwar Al-Awlaki

    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20210318-houthi-official-cia-asked-yemens-saleh-to-release-al-qaeda-member/

    So is the relationship between Al-Qaeda and the US a matter of policy or was the above a Deep State maneuver?

  11. Interesting piece. Many of the people who scoff at the term “Deep State” have been railing against “the Establishment” for decades. Nice to see the two ambiguous labels together, and given something of a more precise definition.

    The tricky part is separating the workers from the company. I have a tough time reconciling my respect for people who serve their country with my contempt for many of the things they are called upon to do. For that matter, I have a tough time reconciling loving this country — its principles, history, traditions and people –with a contempt for its current government and the current culture.

  12. The “deep state” uses the democrats to carry out its globalist anti western anti-American plans because the democratic party has most of the violent kooks and the lying media ready to serve the deep state, so that the democratic party serves as the useful idiots for the deep states toxic actions. It isn’t that politicians like Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, etc.etc. are so damned brilliant in getting things done. They simply have the backing of the deep states resources to get things done, unlike the conservative party. If this isn’t clear to Americans by now, they are utterly confused as to why the leftists get away with the most outrageous actions, unlike conservatives can. Oh yes, there is definitely a “deep state”operating to carry out its agenda, day after day. It exists because Americans dropped the ball a long time ago.

    Referencing the article above, the Deep State has existed since Court Jews were permitted to lend money to kings in medieval times. It still exists today, and it is worldwide.

    They don’t have to “meet” anyone. All they have to do is to use their massive world owning influence to make certain that people who advance their interests are put into positions of power.

    The above is very true, however the author does say one very naive thing.

The actual politics of how policy comes out the other end is confined to a very small group at the top, some of whom are themselves political appointees.

    These intermediate employees have huge impact on the outcome. For example, a staffer brainwashed by PC culture would prioritize “hate” from anti-LGBTQXYZ activity and the fictitious Islamophobia. To make way for that bias, crimes against Christians would be dropped. That report submitted to an equally brainwashed superior would be passed thru, while an accurate report on crime against Christians would be pushed back for rework.

    It does not require an active conspiracy to produce misleading “intelligence” agency product that ignores Anti-Christian and Anti-Semitic activities. Multiple layers of Politically Correct middle management steeped in SJW Islamic BLM Cancel Culture do irreparable harm long before information reaches a “political decision makers”.

    If you want a visible case, look at the dishonorable behavior of Lt. Col. Vindman. If O5 rank is:

    This is like those movies where the retired CIA operative is minding his own business on his boat, baiting his tuna hooks with Salvadoran nun boobs, and some puke in a suit comes and says to him in his deepest big-shot voice,

    “Phil. It’s a crisis. Only you can help us. Just one more mission. For America.”

    So then zoom in Phil making a squinty face, and he goes on OPERATION SHIT PLENUM (TS/SCI/HORSESHIT)

    STRAWMAN FAIL. Phil’s “vast conspiracy” refers to extensively documented CIA programs inter alia The Safari Club, Project Gladio, the Franklin Scandal, Project Mockingbird, and whatever programs paid for Udo Olfkotte’s smokin’ hot whores – which sound really silly until you remember that SIS dickheads went ahead and did them.

    1035-960 ¶4§c FAIL. CIA always needs new and novel bullshit to obfuscate its crimes. And Phil ingeniously combines the Bozo fallback with the evergreen “scale” canard from 1035-960. Of course CIA is a bunch of fucking clowns. They are clowns with a dozen get-out-of-jail-free cards. So when they fuck up and get caught, they just run real fast, back in the VW beetle and drive back to Langley, Beep, Beep! Like when CIA blew up the WTC, and fucked it up and Emad Salem got them on tape, nothing happened so they just tried again with nukes and Izzie saboteurs and finally got it right.

    HARVARD FOUR-DAY EXECUTIVE MBA FAIL. Phil reasons from staff constraints and span-of-control problems to debunk documented CIA crime. But when you have two sets of books and multiple covert ops slush funds from WWII pillage, drug-dealing, gun-running, child trafficking, money laundering, theft, and macro-scale financial fraud, you can buy all the arms and legs you want. You can’t direct them properly, but so fuckin what? You have impunity! It doesn’t matter if your vast network of bribed agents fuck up.

    … lots more misc. shit in a Gish gallop of bog-standard CIA finger-pointing – i.e. “deniability” – with some heartwarming Scout’s honor shit, many honest buttonmen Imean people in the Genovese Family sorry Imean CIA, Genovese wise guys are just cutouts.

    HAND-WAVING FAIL. It’s not CIA, it’s this vague diffuse thing called the establishment because everybody knows CIA whacked the Kennedys so when the laser dot goes on their head they know the drill.

    The fundamental undigested kernel of corn in this buffed-up turd is that CIA has impunity. That makes CIA a criminal enterprise, necessarily and by definition. They can kill you and torture you and get away with it. You, JFK, RFK, Reagan, Judge Robert Vance, Dag Hammarskjöld, Patrice Lumumba, Orlando Letelier, Kiki Camarena, anybody. We don’t need that shit. We don’t want that shit. Fuck CIA. Just nuke it with Tsar Bomba.

That is such a non-existent straw man that one wonders why Mr. Giraldi even brings it up. Because he’s afraid that most of his readers may consider rank-and-file CIA and FBI agents to be the enemy?

    I hear you, but I think that ‘deep state’ has the wrong connotation.

    It’s really the oligarchy, mostly the 600 or so billionaires that run things in this country.

    The government officials of the alleged ‘deep state’ are IMHO more intermediaries going along to get along and currying favor with their overlords, than true masters.

    Is there a conspiracy? Well sure, I mean our corporate press is run by like six primary outlets and they all have lunch together and you’d have to be blind not to see their close coordination. But mostly, I think it’s that these oligarchs have the same interests – cheap labor via massive immigration, favorable tax treatment, massive government subsidies, buying public assets for 5 cents on the dollar, and so on – and they naturally tend to all favor the same things at the same time.

That “exercise” continues to this day, with so much of the incomprehensible societal upheaval we see constantly. The election fraud, Covid lockdowns, the Capitol “insurrection”, BLM, Antifa, white supremacist anti-Asian violence, transsexualism, etc.

    The velocity of all this has accelerated dramatically since 9/11. What is next? Whatever it is, it will be wildly worse than you can imagine. As Dr. Sabrosky explained, “ the Zionists are playing this as truly an all-or-nothing exercise”. The most insightful twelve words ever offered.

    “The Deep State is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”

    Why is it we can’t identify the Deep State?

    Because we are immersed in it, we are up to our eyeballs in it and can’t see it.

    “The Bible is not a good book, it is a hex. Seriously, the Bible is a spell and a hex on humanity. It is the cause of our destruction because of what it does to the human mind. The Bible is programming humanity to view the world a certain way and they how to interact in it. The Bible is an upload to the human mind, it is a programming code. When everyone reads the same book and follows the same set of rules and when everyone obeys a central authority you have the makings of a hive mind.

    The Bible unifies everyone into one organism, everyone obeys God, a judgmental God, a Jude god. The Bible establishes authority in your mind, with the Bible you relinquish your personal sovereignty and sign on to empire building, you become a cog in a big Jehovah judgmental war machine. First ye must judge others before carpet bombing them. The Bible is literally the memetic code for hive building. American Empire is full of worker bees and soldiers and trigger happy cops trained in Israel, America is now an Empire controlled by Israel, a nation completely subverted to the Bible believing hive.”

  33. The Deep State sure as hell had a meeting to decide what to do about Jeffery Epstein. It was very very clear that he was a dead man walking. And low and behold…..he breaks his own neck. The Deep State most certainly exists. This cabal sits and ponders how to grow its power and bring riches unto itself. The members come in…die off, only to be replaced by, like-minded, sociopaths. They are recruited, their allegiance sealed with Satanic rituals of bestiality, pedophilia, rape or murder. This deep state no doubt involves the Federal Reserve, Jewish Owned Media, and all the Jewish Billionaires hard at work fleecing the world and enslaving humanity. The CIA does control our Media. The US Military controls our media. The Jewish Tribe also OWNS and therefore controls and censors our Media. The Politicians are indeed corrupted and blackmailed by Zionist Jews rabidly protecting their homeland. More recently their new suiter is CHINA. There is a lot of rot in the world. Most of it to me seems to be the remnants; the faint echoes of massive criminal activity. Horrendous wars instigated to enrich the bankers, feed the egos of despots…..History never revealing the TRUE causes of such calamities. The masses poked and prodded with one psy-op after another…driving them yet to another chance at patriotism. Everyone whipped into madness by Jewish devised Cultural Marxism, Critical Theory, Cancel Culture, White Fragility, Colonialism…one SHIATE after another. Off balanced, discombobulated…most importantly…DIVIDED, SILENCED and CANCELED.

    You think there aren’t CIA agents and Mossad assets sprinkled throughout every level of the US government and media? Guess you weren’t paying careful enough attention to Paul Findley’s They Dare Speak Out.

    How did 9/11 happen without intelligence agencies involved or, after the fact, covering up for the perpetrators? How does the CIA and NSA not know who did 9/11? The NSA collects everything. How is it that we aren’t even allowed to know what the CIA’s budget is? It’s all bullshit and they’re all guilty.

    Sure, maybe some janitors at the CIA aren’t bloodthirsty murderous psychopaths but a faction of the CIA is the US capitalist class and the President’s death squads and they always have been. Ask Che, Allende and Lumumba.

  51. Deep State was a term I first saw used in reference to 20thc Turkey. It is a powerful term that cuts to the heart of the matter. Many countries have one and some that do would surprise you.

    A long time ago I knew a retired army guy and I told him my theory of the deep state, without using that phrase, and he not only confirmed my conclusions about extra-judicial assassinations but he then outlined his work in military Intel and federal policing. I found out that long before Abu Ghraib people were disappearing into panel vans, planes and black sites. Not a lot but enough for their to be a system.

    Many industries have aspects that can impact national security. In some companies the engineer’s joke about being ‘audited’. It involves being followed and having aspects of your life poked into. I never realized being around this stuff as a young man how bizarre a world it truly is. Now I know and now I hunker down. I lost my illusions about living in a ‘democracy’ years ago.
    I find it strange to talk to people and find that they are still innocents. I know that being snatched off the street and tossed in a trunk is real. It makes you see the world differently and you cant get it back once it is gone. I feel different and older than many who have a decade or 2 on me. It is isolating to know the brutal reality but live in a society where massive denial is the norm. I mostly worry about the young who will have to live in a more corrupt and evil iteration of this world than I even did. If it were possible, I would warn them but I doubt they would listen. I guess they will see it soon enough with the Cohenim Cabinet in D.C..

    The Deep State conspirators don’t have to meet to plot as they all understand very well what has to be done to maintain their supremacy.

    Excellent point, I am glad to see you have finally spoken out about the Deep State. Here are two past comments I have posted on the UR and other sites.

    First The vast majority of Americans believe that Capitalism and Democracy are two gods joined at the hip. Anything is fair game in the furtherance of, or defense of Capitalism and Democracy. The worship of this, combination of economic/government, system has reached the level of religious dogma. This fact did not go unnoticed by those that strived to gain complete control of the United States and thereby hegemonic control of the world…a unipolar world. I referrer to this concept and the people that work toward it as the Deep State. The idea of using wealth to gain power is by no means a new one…even in this country. It has been a dream of the rich in this country for many decades, but progress was limited…until 1945. Everything changed after WWII. The wealthy found that during the war the opportunity to become even more fabulously rich (this was also the case during WWI) was possible. To the wealthy and powerful the possibility of total world control didn’t seem so impossible to reach. For the last seventy-five years there has been an all out push by the Deep State to achieve the unipolar world. This effort has been obvious to those that were not too blinded by the dogma. There were numerous events that were planned to further the power of the Deep State…I will not list them here. The total control of the United States is almost complete, but the goal of a unipolar world has some major road blocks.

    Second The Deep State consists of the very wealthy who are greedy for more wealth and power. There are 607 billionaires in the US. There is no reason for the Deep State members to formally collude…they all know what needs to be done and how to do it…a plutocratic oligarchy. They use a relatively small amount of their money to place their minions in positions of power…heads of the movie industry, the media, the federal government, as well as strategic state and local government, academia. From then on if the lessers in these groups want to keep their jobs/lives they will toe the line. It becomes self-sustaining from tax money and the Deep State glories in more wealth and power.

    Here is an excellent example of the Deep State in action: The SCOTUS has passed down egregious decisions that abridge the First Amendment and show contempt for the concept of representative democracy. Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1976 and exacerbated by continuing stupid SCOTUS decisions First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.

    These decisions have codified that money is free speech thereby giving entities of wealth and power almost total influence in elections. By gaining control of the SCOTUS the Deep State is able to further its goals.

    Another take on the Deep State:

    This is a rather simple argument which is simultaneously true and rubbish.

Unfortunately, like any corporate dictatorship, the opinion of the serf/employees mean absolutely nothing when the decrepit cabal at the top decide to propagate a war to boost Q4 earnings through their vast influence money and power. I am sure Phil and his buddies at the water cooler were the good guys at the CIA trying to do what is right – unfortunately their opinions did not matter.

    Is all that matters in our faux democracy / gangster dictatorship is what the Clappers, Brennan’s, Obama’s, Clinton’s and Bushes have to say and how theses criminals are organized.

    Thank you for your insight. I can understand the cabal button pushers being “collectively the living body of Power as God”. Left unsaid, from what I could discern, is who, or what, is pulling the strings of these button pushers.

    In my admittedly limited view, the corruption, ponerology, or parasitic endeavors of this group have been remarkably consistent, and successful, for multiple generations, if not millennium. It would seem to be self evident that this consistency of purpose, and the unerring success of it’s application, would not have been possible if it was only being driven by an “in-fighting, back stabbing, alliance shifting, power sharing arrangements” of any group of men, even a group that mercilessly “self selects” for such traits. Historically observed human flaws, and/or competency shortcomings, would seem to lead to a rapid collapse of said “power arrangement”.

    Knowing who, or what, specifically is in the shadows, pulling the strings of the “collective living body of Power as God”, could be helpful for one who might be predisposed to try and alter “Big Brother’s” end game. Where, physically, said string puller(s) is located might also be useful to know.

If you don’t believe it then explain the Vietnam war. What possesses us to take our armed forces to the other side of the planet and bomb people in mud huts? The Holy Bible. It is a war making document, a believer is indoctrinated into a religious power cult.

The so-called “deep state” is this hive mind at work, all are working like a hive of killer bees to subjugate the planet into Yahweh subservience. Amerika is literally being controlled by little parasitic Israel because of widespread Biblical beliefs, Amerikans are willing pawns in Jewish wars of conquest, this is why nearly all the thousands of Christians churches deny and ignore Israel’s primary role in 911.

    One day you will discover that the US is controlled by MI6, which in turn is controlled by the British Establishment, which consists of the Queen of England, her Privy Council and her banker in chiefs, the Rothschild family.

    When the Queen croaks, then it will be the turn of King Charles III, his Privy Council and his banker in chiefs, the Rothschild family.

    Your CIA and FBI are modelled on MI6 and MI5 respectively.

    All these organisations were developed by the Rothschilds and Queen Victoria in conjunction with a few hereditary Lords, career politicians and bankers in the nineteenth century to regain the wealth, power and influence that was lost to England (NOT Britain) after the US ceded from English control.

    Of course, this is only here say, thus you must take this with a pinch of salt. As the saying goes, however, ‘there’s no smoke without fire.’ Plus, there are quite a few instances where advice to this effect has been ignored by those who think ‘they are in the know.’

    But you can only have so many chiefs, and by the look of it the Deep State has far too many, if current projections are all taken in to account. Generally, as a rule of thumb, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

    Thanks only to a few people like Smedley Butler (War is a Racket) and John Perkins (Confessions of an Economic Hitman), we know there is no connection between what is reported to the public and what the actual purpose of foreign policy is.

    The author was correct in pointing out that sometimes the CIA and NSA are merely tools acting on behalf of elected officials. But when Helms used the mafia to plot the assassination of Castro, little did he realize that the blowback would be the mafia assassinating JFK, MLK and RFK, a business decision designed to keep the bosses out of prison and protect their own sordid business interests. Giancana, Marcello, Rosselli, Trafficante, and Hoffa all ran circles around the CIA until they were scheduled to testify in these matters, then they all ended up dead. Seems like, so far, in these cases the CIA actually had the last word, to make sure the truth was never told.

    So imo there’s no formal DS structure but it’s no less real and damaging for all of that.

    Probably your assessment is close to the truth. However, there has to be a forum for ideas to be presented and discussed, especially on important matters like national defense, reserve currency status, population control, etc. Evidence? Here’s a quote from Larry Summers to Elizabeth Warren (https://bulletin.represent.us/elizabeth-warren-exposes-larry-summers-game-rigged/):

    “After dinner, “Larry leaned back in his chair and offered me some advice,” Ms. Warren writes. “I had a choice. I could be an insider or I could be an outsider. Outsiders can say whatever they want. But people on the inside don’t listen to them. Insiders, however, get lots of access and a chance to push their ideas. People — powerful people — listen to what they have to say. But insiders also understand one unbreakable rule: They don’t criticize other insiders.”

    But, indeed, I find Mr Giraldi’s essay somewhat lacking in depth – he could at least have indicated the CIA, FBI, other national security state agencies are ‘tools’ of insiders making decisions in private, but seeking consensus from multiple stakeholders, nationally and internationally. And of course, those paying for operations and greasing palms always seems to affect the outcome – so any one organization or person with access to large amounts of ‘money/wealth’ will be considered ‘insiders’ and allowed to skew the decisions in any specific direction. I’d wager that if one could ‘fix’ the concept of ‘money’ then the problem of ‘deep state’ could be solved. Fat chance.

    We need to start talking about the JIA rather than the CIA, a small regional office of the international JIA. The JIA is run by a ruthless, fanatical, border-less ethnic Mafia, in all western countries and probably most eastern ones as well. A nation, in every land. Much harder to pin down that way since they don’t have any central office, flashy logos, 1-800 phone lines or structural flow-charts.

    They DO, however, have a vast encryption system in the form of their own “language”, their own “state” (unfortunately) and a network of spies (sayanim) who work 24/7, 365 for their “boss”, an ancient demonically-inspired ideology of megalomania and lusts. They study the arts of camouflage, power, organization and unity-of-purpose to implement their objective, the complete subversion of Humanity.

    We need to study this Mafia and apply some of their methods and tactics to save ourselves. Don’t get distracted by the small structural details, which become camouflage for the larger entity.

    I think this is what Mr. Giraldi is getting at, although I (we) certainly appreciate his insights into the minutiae of our opponents’ tactics . Thanks once again for another gem.

    There is no such thing as “judeo-Christian.”

    Christ came to save the jews and they rejected Him…..and God divorced the jews as a result of their rebellion.

    jews and Christians have nothing in common. The New Testament is an entirely new deal. But for a small remnant the jews were broken off.

    organized jewry follows the edicts found in the Talmud, which includes quite a bit of anti-Christ instruction.

    The Bible had nothing to do with Vietnam or any other war. In fact, Christianity stresses pacificism…..abhors violence. The more solid argument is that Christianity has made pussies out of our people who are unwilling to fight back even if the face of jewish tyranny.

    There are some stupid Christian zionists out there….sadly they support Israel. CZ’s are brainwashed heretics and this heresy was founded on the Scofield Bible.

    Yes, but oligarchy is the type of government…Deep State is its name. See my comment #61 below.

  90. WTF? There wasn’t one thing I learned from reading this piece by PG – was this put together by an algorithm?
    So, I decided to check out DaLimbraw Library – https://crushlimbraw.blogspot.com/search?q=Deep+state&updated-max=2019-07-16T12:31:00-07:00&max-results=20&start=0&by-date=false&m=1 – a word search on DEEP STATE – a list of headnotes of articles by various authors.
    When you’re done – you should be done – at least for a while!

  91. I think that Giraldi is not quite accurate in his description of the deep state. Yes, there is no formal part of government that is the Deep State. Rather, there are shifting alliances — part cabal, part crony capitalist rich men, part permanent bureaucracy and part intelligence agency mafia-like operations including the Mossad – all held together by the glue of self-interest. What Giraldi misses is the crucial element of fear. It is the existence of groups inside the state, operating with impunity outside the law, that makes the deep state “deep.” Think about what happened to men like William Colby among others. His fate concentrates a lot minds inside the Beltway, without which it would not be possible to coordinate and carry out complicated assaults on American soil that involve dozens or hundreds of people, (e.g., the coup d’état of Nov 22, the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11 to name a few).

    Nonsense. Is that all you’ve got for us after spending 40 years noodling this over?

    The danger posed by the Deep State is that it wields immense power but is unelected and unaccountable

    That captures it with admirable succinctness. I’ll add my own fine point, that we are where we are right now, evidences broad institutional collapse.

    What does it say about our governing class that they continue to do such damage to our Constitutional Republic to protect a handful of knuckleheads from accountability; much less allows them on the TV to shout about the POTUS and other elected officials, and pays them to write books about how “undaunted” they remain.

    Great nations don’t long endure if they allow themselves to be hijacked by a claque that feels bad about themselves because they were beaten by one man. Twice. Fair and square. Trump refused to take one for the team and thus anyone who’s anybody, foreign and domestic, will never forgive him and MAGA for it.

    It didn’t go according to plan. The smart bet was their frame-up gambits would force him to withdraw in 2016; then that all their innuendo would put Hillary over the top, or at least within range of their stealing capability; then that they could help him into being a failed president whose loss of public approval forced him to resign or face certain impeachment from whatever fabricated pretext pushed on the bipartisan open door in Congress.

    After all that miserable failure, they methodically planned and executed a 2020 do-over that does justice to the phrase By Any Means Necessary. Most ominously, that included foreign powers elevated from supportive to lead roles for round two.

    At this point it’s impossible to conclude that there is any limit to what of the national interest they will sacrifice to maintain illegitimate power and cover up their malefactions.

    As much as we may want it to be about Truth or Justice it never is for sovereigns. Ones that wish t endure don’t piss away years going from bad to worse like this.

    Trump is a man of superlatives. Love him or hate him, he was bound and determined to be The Greatest President Ever! However you access his four years, his exit puts him within shooting distance. He refused to be made the father of their planned tyranny by invoking The Insurrection Act which they would then redirect at MAGA and anyone else in their way. He refused to concede, yet gave way when on January 6th, they openly threatened violence in “all 50 state capitols” and DC, until they got their way.

    Now the Democrats, their permanent government and media allies, and foreign partners/masters, are convinced that “One and done” better suits their needs than that free and fair elections thingie.

    The old testament should never have been incorporated into Christianity. THAT was a major mistake which embedded pharasaic judaism into Christianity.
    Christians could still use the old testament as a reference of the now-cancelled “covenant” that the jews had with their “yahweh” without believing that it was the “inspired word of God”.
    In fact, I don’t believe that the new testament is the “inspired word of God” either…both the old and new testaments were written and translated by MEN, each “translation” having the agenda of its “author” embedded in it.
    The latest aberration of the old and new testaments by Schofield did much to cement the false concept of “judeo-Christianity” with “jewish supremacy”, “raptures”, and other nonsensical scams…

    I must disagree with your assertion that the Mafia “made the hit” on JFK. Yes, JFK did utilize nepotism to appoint his brother as “attorney general”, becoming a “thorn in the side” of the Mafia, but the “rot” goes much deeper than that, the Mafia having a certain “code of conduct”.

    JFK was done in by the mossad as he did not like israel one bit, knew of the stolen fissile atomic materials used to “jump start” israel’s nuclear weapons program, and was an advocate of pushing international controls on ALL states’ nuclear programs worldwide. israel could not abide by such a demand.

    Knocking off Kennedy, along with crypto-jew Lyndon Johnson’s acquiescence in the assassination sealed the deal.

    Kennedy and Johnson had no love for each other, and merely tolerated each other…
    Proof of Johnson’s treason was the cover-up of the “false flag” operation, the “act of war” by israel against the united States involving the USS Liberty (GTR-5) on 8 June 1967.

    It is no secret that Johnson was not only involved with the attack, but was working as a “deep state operative” for israel. Johnson expected “all hands” on the Liberty to perish so that he could go along with israel’s plans to attack Egypt.

    When “all hands” did not perish, (despite Johnson’s initial refusal to provide air support for the Liberty), all bets were off. It had to be declared a case of “misidentification”…yeah right.

    Lyndon Johnson had a much greater hand in JFKs assassination than most are willing to admit. For israel’s sake, JFK “had to go”.

Also, the official head of an intelligence agency is never the actual head but is just a front man, the actual head being someone unknown. Perhaps it’s just all an unspoken recognition of the commonality of interests that factions of corporations and billionaires have and the government is merely its committee to interact between them.

    Well they are supreme because they are in positions of power in the world’s most powerful country; so the primary mission of the US Deep State is to maintain America’ global primacy.

    That is the real danger. The Biden Administration will surely demonstrate over the next several months that the Deep State is still with us and more powerful than ever as it operates both inside and outside the government itself.

    Lets hope so, because with his scoffing at the idea that Chinese growth can threaten US supremacy, and animadversion of Putin and all his works, Biden seems to be behaving like a vulgar Marxist would expect a president from most Fortune 500 companies’ incorporation base of Wilmington, Delaware to act like.

  121. The flare-up of the Deep State has many facets but the biggest is that Trump was seen as an Outsider, and with time everyone in DC realized they could actively oppose him in their jobs without repercussions, and very likely would lose their jobs if they worked on his behalf. One need only look at Comey, McCabe and Strzok working to basically overturn Trump’s election, and the same with others slow-walking (or just ignoring) his orders. Similarly you have people like Eric Ciaramella being a CIA “whistleblower” pushing for impeachment, and Vindman announcing that Trump had deviated from “consensus policy” (from John Bolton?) on how to run foreign policy in Ukraine. While true, foreign policy is the main prerogative of an elected President! And you had seven(?) former (?) intelligence agents, including several from the CIA, demanding impeachment in the WaPo, forcing Pelosi’s hand (when that time could have more productively been spent on Covid-19 preparations.)
    While Giraldi’s point that the Heads of most Government Agencies are political appointees who are basically figureheads, their main role punching up to get more money for their divisions, this was not the case with Brennan, Clapper and Comey; clearly their divisions had eschewed apolitical status to protect their turfs, and became Democrats, continuing Obama’s policies and Executive Orders as much as possible. The DNC IS the Establishment.
    Because of this, Trump was a relatively ineffective President, and only a hiccup in the continued expansion of the American Police State and Empire.

    I will just mention two.

    1. From one of the “Godfathers” of NWO & Globalization, David Rockefeller.

    “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal, working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists,’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it”. Memoirs page 405

    2. Congressman Louis McFadden (R-PA) 1930s quote

    “ The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is eager to enter into close relationship with the Bank for International Settlements….The conclusion is impossible to escape that the State and Treasury Departments are willing to pool the banking system of Europe and America, setting up a world financial power independent of and above the Government of the United States….The United States under present conditions will be transformed from the most active of manufacturing nations into a consuming and importing nation with a balance of trade against it.”

    The above statement has come to pass with the de industrialization of the US, starting in the late 70s.

    (McFadden was himself an ex-banker who became a formidable opponent of the Federal Reserve System and an “anti-Semitic” “conspiracy theorist.” McFadden openly accused “Jewish bankers” of having engineered the crash of 1929 and subsequent Great Depression. He openly cited the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion on the House floor).

    Excellent mention of Congressman Louis McFadden, an honourable man and patriot whose type no longer exists in America nor anywhere in the western world.

    McFadden’s later career was marked by violent criticism of his party’s financial policies. Opposition to the Hoover moratorium on war debts led him to propose to the House on 12-13-1932 that the President be impeached. He bitterly attacked the governors of the Federal Reserve Board for “having caused the greatest depression we have ever known”. Both the President and the Board, he was convinced, were conspiring with the “international” bankers to ruin the country. He lost his seat to a Democrat in 1934, although two years previously he had had the support of the Republican, Democratic and Prohibition parties. He died in 1936 while on a visit in new York City.

    The Government is in the banking business as never before. Against its will it has been made the backer of horsethieves and card sharps, bootleggers, smugglers, speculators, and swindlers in all parts of the world. Through the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks the riffraff of every country is operating on the public credit of this United States Government. Meanwhile, and on account of it, we ourselves are in the midst of the greatest depression we have ever known.

    I reckon that the Protocols are a pre-emptive limited and deceptive hangout. Judaic ambitions are pretty well known-various blabber-mouths have boasted of them over the centuries. The proof of the pudding, the operations of the elites of organised Jewry, see the destruction of Corbyn and UK Labour for a recent example, are well-known, and the control of Western politics, fakestream media, finance etc, are unprecedented in their breadth and depth. So how useful is a tract outlining such ambitions, but apparently a ‘fake’ concocted by vile ‘antisemites’? If the Cheka didn’t get around to writing it, some Judaic worthies saved them the bother.

    One problem with the theory about total global dominance through espionage is the sheer logistics of it all. Directing political and economic developments in two hundred nations simultaneously must require a lot of space and a large staff. Is there a huge office hidden in Langley? Or the Pentagon? Or in the White House West Wing itself? Or is it in one of the secure facilities that have been popping up like mushrooms just off of the Dulles Toll Road in Herndon Virginia?

    While I am not suggesting that total global dominance is being attempted through espionage alone…it is certainly an important tool of the Deep State. You refer to the complexity of the sheer logistics. You obviously are not up to date on the abilities of current, supercomputers, algorithms, and complex equations to solve mind-boggling scientific inquiries in the fields of physics, chemistry, astrophysics, and mathematics.

    Speaking of the Dulles brothers (Dulles Toll Road). They were certainly two of the biggest promoters/supports of intelligence gathering and the goal of world hegemony…even before the end of WWII. They played decisive roles in intelligence gathering and covert activities in the latter half of the ’40s and throughout the ’50s.

    Israel certainly has a track record of State sanctioned assassination and you provided a motive. Before you can say Mossad you need proof, of which you offer none. Because of secret records declassified and released over the last twenty years detailed proof in this series of tragedies is documented in a book titled “Legacy of Secrecy” by Waldron & Hartmann. A few extracts are shown below.

    Mafia bosses had the motive, the means and some direct and indirect late in life confessions. Many met an untimely death before their scheduled testimony before (House Select Committee on Assassination) HSCA. The CIA had the means and the motive to keep their illegal activity secret by assassinating these murderers. Robert Kennedy had another concern, which was to keep the willingness of the popular Cuban Army General Alameida to participate in a US sanctioned coup against Castro secret. A plan which never reached fruition after JFK’s death. The CIA had three other secret assassination squads and plans in development, which would have angered Kennedy and Johnson, because they depended on using mafia hit men.

    The mafia’s first hit of a Government official was the Attorney General of Alabama, who won his seat promising to clean up Alabama, especially the town of Phenix, which was run by Marcello and Trafficante. When Attorney General Albert Patterson was murdered on June 18, 1954, no fall guy was included. After the story in the National Press grew with public outrage Eisenhower sent the National Guard down to Phenix and drove the mafia out of town and out of business. Marcello and Trafficante never forgot that and thereafter they always included a patsy in their assassination plots. Carlos Marcello was imprisoned for a few years for bribing a juryman, who went public when he wasn’t paid in full. During his imprisonment a transistor radio was rigged to a tape recorder which recorded his confession to killing JFK to his cellmate. referring to President Kennedy he said, “Yeah, I had the son of a bitch killed. I’m glad I did. I’m sorry I couldn’t have done it myself”. These murders involved many people and plans. A string of JFK murder confessions are now documented including including the Operations Chief of the 600 man CIA Miami Station, David Morales. You can imagine how important it was to Helms’s career to keep things like this secret. Hoover may have been motivated to maintain secrecy for fear of mafia blackmail from an organization which he barely acknowledged the existence of, on account of his lifelong relationship with Clyde Anderson Tolson.

    Jack Ruby worked for Carlos Marcello, who financed his Dallas strip club. He ran guns into Cuba for Trafficante and the CIA. A white supremacist named Joseph Milteer worked with Marcello during the JFK assassination and paid Marcello $300,000 to assassinate MLK. Together with Hugh R, Spake, they raised money on paydays at the Atlanta GM plant and through wealthier groups which sought to keep black people in their proper place.

    There is no such thing as “judeo-Christian.”

    That is a common defense when someone who is outside the Jewish and Christian world sees them completely connected. How so?

    The New Testament is a continuation of the Old Testament (OT). There can be no Jesus unless the OT is valid, that being humans need to get forgiveness from sin in order to get right with God. Christianity can not exist outside of Judaism, without the OT construct of reality, there would be no reason to have a savior, or forgiveness.

    Many Jew wise Christians object to linking Jews and Christians with the term Judeo-Christian, but I do so often not to offend but to make people aware of the two being one in the same thing. There is a famous John Kaminski essay that illustrates the point I am making:

    ‘What you are not told is that ‘The Lord’ is actually ‘the Jews’

    15th February 2010

    World Changer

    “Counter Bias: The only thing about your below comments is that Judiasm and Christianity are JOINED AT THE HIP SEAMLESSLY ALL THE WAY UP TO THE TOPS OF THEIR HEADS in an inoperable Siamese twin condition. The only way you can destroy Jews and Judiasm is to destroy Christianity. You cannot put the cart before the horse.

    The Christian cannot divest himself of the influence of the Jew without throwing out the dogma of the Bible. If you rally around Christianity you circle the wagons around the Jew.

    “The concept that God wants blood is at the bottom of the atonement and rests upon the most barbaric savagery.” (Robt. G. Ingersoll)

    “Where you have forgiveness of sins you will have sins in abundance.” (T. Paine.)

    The whole fabric of Christianity is based on Blood Sacrifice and fantastic fraud such as raising the dead. If you submit your life to Christianity you in the same act surrender your mind and give your life over to the aristocracy of the air and kneel before the fabrication of idiots. I myself was raised a Lutheran and every month immediately after Communion (eating the body and blood of Christ) the minister forgave you your sins (abracadabra) in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen pass the plate. And this in a church whose founder, Martin Luther, railed against the Catholic Church selling indulgences.

    There will be no perceptive turning back of the fraud of religion and the Jews until a means to overcome the stranglehold of the media over the dissemination of information is initiated. A method to completely bypass the checkpoints of the Jews AND the Christians is necessary. All religion is a fraud. The US Constitution is a instrument of serfdom and protects relgion. There is no separation of government and religion when government protects the indictment of fraud The answer is not simply the destruction of Judiasm and by extension its support group, Christianity. It will be an Event Horizon that will come when the world is literally brought to its knees as a result of venerating the worthless and the sterile.

    This is coming.”

    1950 In an experiment to determine how susceptible an American city would be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of bacteria from ships over San Francisco. Monitoring devices are situated throughout the city in order to test the extent of infection. Many residents become ill with pneumonia-like symptoms.

    1951 Department of Defense begins open-air tests using disease-producing bacteria and viruses. Tests last through 1969 and there is concern that people in the surrounding areas have been exposed.

    1953 U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocacy River Valley in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.

    1953 Joint Army-Navy-CIA experiments are conducted in which tens of thousands of people in New York and San Francisco are exposed to the airborne germs Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.

    1953 CIA initiates Project MKULTRA. This is an eleven-year research program designed to produce and test drugs and biological agents that would be used for mind control and behavior modification. Six of the sub-projects involved testing the agents on unwitting human beings.

    1955 The CIA, in an experiment to test its ability to infect human populations with biological agents, releases bacteria withdrawn from the Army’s biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Florida.

    1955 Army Chemical Corps continues LSD research, studying its potential use as a chemical incapacitating agent. More than 1,000 Americans participate in the tests, which continue until 1958.

    1956 U.S. military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over Savannah, GA and Avon Park, Florida. Following each test, Army agents posing as public health officials test victims for effects.

    1958 LSD is tested on 95 volunteers at the Army’s Chemical Warfare Laboratories for its effect on intelligence.

    1960 The Army Assistant Chief-of-Staff for Intelligence (ACSI) authorizes field-testing of LSD in Europe and the Far East. Testing of the European population is code-named Project THIRD CHANCE; testing of the Asian population is code named Project DERBY HAT.

    1965 CIA and Department of Defense begin Project MKSEARCH, a program to develop a capability to manipulate human behavior through the use of mind-altering drugs.

    1965 Prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in Philadelphia are subjected to dioxin, the highly toxic chemical component of Agent Orange used in Viet Nam. The men are later studied for development of cancer, which indicates that Agent Orange had been a suspected carcinogen all along.

    1966 CIA initiates Project MKOFTEN, a program to test the toxicological effects of certain drugs on humans and animals.
    1966 U.S. Army dispenses Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the New York City subway system. More than a million civilians are exposed when army scientists drop light bulbs filled with the bacteria onto ventilation grates.

    1967 CIA and Department of Defense implement Project MKNAOMI, successor to MKULTRA and designed to maintain, stockpile and test biological and chemical weapons.

    1968 CIA experiments with the possibility of poisoning drinking water by injecting chemicals into the water supply of the FDA in Washington, D.C.

    1969 Dr. Robert MacMahan of the Department of Defense requests from congress $10 million to develop, within 5 to 10 years, a synthetic biological agent to which no natural immunity exists.

    I think Judaism is very much still a religion – and still a very superstitious one at that. Jews still believe in God, still practice rituals, still absolve themselves of sin, etc. Jews (and Christians) still think God cares what you do. Jews still administer our laws based on the Ten Commandments. If you kill Jews (many who need killing) you will soon be looking at a Jewish judge and Jewish prosecutor.

    If you live in police state Amerika, the entire jewdicial system is based on what Jews think, perhaps being White is now a crime. Not law based on objective reasoning, but law based on the opinions and prejudices of Jews. That was the case back then and it is still the case now. Now if you are White, or Christian, or both you are in on it with them, the jury of White Christians will convict you for sure if the Jewish system of judge and prosecutor tell them to.

    This is the matrix in which you live, it is a Jewish matrix. For instance, if you decide to go hunt or fish like a Native American, and you didn’t purchase a hunting or fishing license, you will soon be caught and the Jewdicial system will come down on you like a ton of bricks. Your own people will turn you in for poaching, and no jury will ever side with you. The same is true if you are a draft dodger and decide you do not want to go to Vietnam and burn down their straw huts, straf and bomb them, or just plain old Napalm them and burn them alive.

    And who put the fish in the river, who owns that fish? Are you allowed to fish in a creek without getting permission first? If you don’t get a permit, a man with a gun will come and get you and put you behind iron bars, where you will rot. This is the system in which we live, it is pure Judeo-Christian evil and don’t say the Christians are not in on it with the Jews.

    No native American society ever had fishing licenses, cops, or jails, or learned Jews reading law books telling you what is permitted or not. The Amerikan society is Jewish through and through, the courts and law, the capitalistic greed is very Jewish, the obsession with control and the enforcement of clothing laws (you can’t walk around naked is Jewish extremism), there are tens of thousands of churches, thousands of denominations, all reading from a Jewish holy book and making it everyone’s reality whether they agree or not.

    Well I don’t agree with anything the Bible says, it is filthy rotten Jewish supremacist literature, I am sick of all the laws, all the taxes, all the lies, all the fakery (which started by the priest with his mumbo jumbo), all the control and now these lunatics are faking a pandemic and making us wear masks and get vaccinated just to move around and buy food. What is happening to us is unbelievable, we don’t even have the right to breathe anymore! We have to buy our water, in Oregon the state says you can’t collect rainwater without a permit!

    Fuck! When is this Jewish created insanity going to end? It will end when we wake up in this matrix and rid ourselves of the control by not believing in the Jews, their creation THE STATE, and when we stop believing that some other person has some right to tell us what to do.

    You lack even a rudimentary understanding of the Bible and the relationship between the OT and the NT.

    You are correct that organized jewry runs the current show, but it has nothing to do with the Torah.

    Organized jewry operates under the Talmud, which is decidedly anti-Christ.

    Prior to the 20th century and the Scofield heresy, the jews were seen quite accurately as the enemy of Christianity. For instance, Martin Luther wrote, “The Jews and Their Lies.”

    Kevin Macdonald (the reigning expert on organized jewry) says that Christianity was the ONLY cohesive group strategy that white people had….and that is why the jews seek to destroy Christianity.

    Your complaints regarding jewish tyranny are understandable but you are assigning the wrong blame for their access to power.

    Their main access to power is usury, the Federal Reserve, The BIS, The WEF, Wall St., etc.

    The jews use money as a form of control and that is why Griffin refers to it as “The Money Power.”

    They can buy off whoever they want, for the most part. And once in a while there is someone they can’t buy off so they have to kill them.

    The media is also a major means of jewish control of the goyim and some would say this is the most powerful aspect of jewish tyranny.

    Organized jewry also has great influence in the educational system, the courts, and the intelligence agencies.

    The Bible has nothing to do with any of this.

    It doesn’t MATTER that they are “fake” in the sense that they do not depict an actual meeting of organized jewry. The depiction of a fictional meeting can still contain a great deal of truth.

There are declassified documents which may still be on the net that show this (they have disappeared but I found some on the Wayback Machine: https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/DOC_0005524009.pdf). Also, there was Operation Mocking Bird which they used to during the Cold War. Furthermore, the CIA is the chief source of misinformation, fake news and also coined the term “Conspiracy Theory” to discredit anything they can’t handle.

    Well said, sir.
    The faux Jew-Turco-Mongol-Khazars and their moronic Masonic lackeys are hammering the casket shut…..or are they?
    Though things look dire I felt great hope this week for two reasons I will share with you.

    First, I spoke to a bank teller. I get her regularly for years. She is your moderate middle class person of European ancestry who is moderate, temperate, moral and conservative. Despite all the propaganda in media I found her to be adamant about not taking The Jab. She is in ber mid to late 50’s. She did not buy the propaganda one bit. People like her are the bed rock of our Western Civilization. The PTB are losing this vaccine war. With this loss comes a further decrease in prestige, trust and confidence from ‘Normies’. This is fantastic news.

    Secondly, I had confirmation that there is an awakening occurring in the UpperMiddle Class in the West. The evidence for this is vast. To begin, a group of Canadian doctors put together a very well done video arguing that people should NOT get the Jab and outlining all the treatments that were ridiculed and suppressed (imervectin, hcq,etc). Canada is very cautious, conservative and conformist-often blindly conformist- so this is an excellent sign. The news from Europe is entering the North America discussion as more and more abandon conventional media (halted vaccinations, deaths, etc). There is a great deal of dissent from the official narrative from where I am sitting.
    They just can’t seem to sell their Garbage that easily any more. A Mexican comedian had Fauci shitting his pants and that video is going viral as is the Geert one where Dr. Vaccine recommends an end to vaccinations at this point in time.
    The psychopathic money grabbers brought the Internet to us with the faith that they would control it just like TV and Radio. They failed despite having taken surveillance programs and marketed them as ‘Social Media’ to the dummies. The ‘dummies’ may be stupid but the monolithic control the American-Jewish Deep State built after WW2 is crumbling. People just don’t buy all they are selling. They buy some of it. But a lot aren’t buying VACCINATE OR DIE!!!!!!!
    This is where their ship is running a ground. There is enough doubt about these vaccines now that they are going to fail as they continue to double and triple down, scream, rant, foam, lie and badger. They are destroying their credibility.
    I grew up Catholic but moved on. I practice within a Buddhist faith. Catholicism absorbed Isis worship as ‘Mother’ worship and renamed it as Mother Mary. Female deities exist in many faiths and Buddha directly gave his students a practice for a female deity. This deity is know as Arya Tara or Buddha Tara.This week as I contemplated the evidence of a growing backlash against Fauxci science by real scientists I received confirmation that WE, us honest and decent humans, are not alone in our struggle but are being supported by enlightened beings who are working to prevent the evil agenda of Fauxci, Gates, Big Pharma and Big Jew. Specifically, I pray to Arya Tara routinely and have for decades. Receiving the knowledge that this Enlightened Being is working on our behalf is new. I have never had this happen. But I did this week. The reason this is important is because Enlightened Beings can only help if we ask or we have the collective karma to receive aid. So this is extremely good news and cause for joy.

    I would never tell anyone what to do in their religious practice but I encourage you to seek guidance, ask to be blessed, request understanding or whatever is appropriate within your faith. This is a real critical period and hope and enthusiasm is important. I have struggled with discouragement over the last year and just felt I had to convey what good news I came across.

    May we all receive a better world and may we all be happy.

  168. What an absurd article. Anyone who even casually researches the history of espionage, as well as the history of finance, will know that espionage is the arms and hands of high finance. They are the goon squads of the masters who have their deep state apparatus spread across all the major nations in the world as a one big bureaucracy/technocracy.

    I am surprised the author revealed himself so blatantly. I wondered about him before—now I know.

    The uber rich decide every election, every new law via lobbyists, every war, and manage every outcome.

    It’s not just the uber rich. The key word is lobbyist. The deep state is the lobbying powers. To the extent that security services, clandestine operations, bombing and killing are involved, that means the military contracting lobbyists for the most part. The Israel lobby wouldn’t be one tenth as strong if it weren’t for the Lockheed lobby and the Boeing lobby and the Raytheon lobby et al bringing the cash.

    And there are a lot of clever ambitious people who are not any where near uber rich who make their career in this milieu. Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzinski are only the foremost examples of working men who made it big playing this game. So if you expand to the uber rich and their most skilled courtiers your sentence would be closer to the mark.

    The chief executive of Lockheed is rich. He is not uber rich. He is my nominee for deep state agent numero uno.

Sure it’s the people at the top that run the chaos and treachery but where would they be without their honest little soldiers. I guess they were only follwing orders. Guess what… it’s actually MI-6 that controls the American spy networks and they have for centuries. That is for the brief moments when American patriots were in charge just before they were assassinated by guess who…British City of London and MI-6.

    The USA has been under British control since they killed JFK. Trump was just a smoke screen. Israel and the Saudis’ are British proxies in the mid.east to create chaos and undermine sovereign nations. The British have been doing this for at least 300 years. The British created slavery and murdered 30 million Africans and still they do everything treacherous to prevent Africa from developing. Aaron Burr fled to Britain after he killed Hamilton because he wanted to start a sovereign bank (Hamilton did not fire his weapon and Burr killed him anyway). The Civil War was about British desire to get back it’s colonies by supporting the Confederacy. If it had not been for Russia sending two Navies to each coast. The British and French were going to join the war on the side of the south. Lincoln’s assassination was coordinated with the British from Montreal Can. where the British had been running a spy ring since the revolution. Booth was caught with thousands of pounds sterling in his possession on his way to Canada. The same place where they coordinated with the CIA to kill JFK. The last real president of the USA. Rhodes and his X Club cronies plotted their destruction of Germany (their leading global competitor) WWI. Not long after the City of London and Wall St Bankers funded the Bolsheviks to get back for the Amer. Civil war. They assassinated three Czars Alex 1 Alex 2 and Nicholas. Hitler’s finance Minister was working through the Rothchild bank in England ( owners of all the central banks in the world except three China, Russia and Iran) and manipulated Hitler into attacking Russia (WWII). Since then it has been one color revolution after another. Did I mention the bogus “Climate Change” BS? Are you getting it yet??
    The City of London right now controls the US government mostly by Rhodes Scholar stooges in high places, other American anglophile traitors, funding both parties through AIPAC, Fed. Reserve and of course the fake news MSM. The State Dept. is controlled by Israeli dual citizenship. Anyone who is a true American patriot will be jailed, killed, blackmailed (Ever heard of J. Epstein?) or financially ruined. Thank God they only jailed LaRouche (and 50 of is team) for five years and he came out swinging again until he died at 97. A true humanist and American patriot. Why? He wanted to make friends with Russia and China and develop the Bering Strait land bridge from Alaska to Moscow.
    Maybe you are foolish to think SIR Kissinger is an American patriot? BTW: He visited Trump at the White House by the back door unannouced!
    The one sq. mile City of London is a private corporation controlled by the Rothchild Central bank cabal and is NOT accountable to the British government…quite the opposite. All legislation must be approved by the City of London.
    I could go on and on and on. Two Opium wars on China, control of India to grow opium, Mao was controlled by London and Wall St. etc etc
    Please people pick up a book and read. Hopefully you are educated and can think critically. I will wait for someone to say “sounds like a conspiracy theory to me”. The CIA’s favorite retort.

    The Bible is the work of the devil. The Bible is considered to be a holy book, it’s words are taken as reverence, and in this holy book you are told to be obedient to authority. (See Romans 13)

    So, if you are obedient to authority, you believe the lies of the State, because God appointed your rulers (that is what the Bible says, and it is the word of God).

    So an obedient Christian, who wants to stay right with God, does not question 911, and would not agree with you that Israel did 911, nor will a good Christian even consider that a possibility. I know this to be true because I argued with hundreds (if not thousands) of Christians after 911 about Israel doing it, and NOT ONE agreed with me, or even wanted to hear, and some waved their hands at me and said I was deranged or was going to hell.

    The Bible makes Jews superior to Christians, and Christians will not take on Jews or Israel because of their faith.

    But Israel is pure evil, the center of world terrorism, and thus Christians are protecting the Khazar crime syndicate – and these Jews know it and play the stupid Christians for everything it is worth, like even attacking their own nations.

    You all are wrong all this one, Christians are in on it with the Jews and the only hope for the world is to nuke Jerusalem, and end these Abrahamic hell religions once and for all time. The Bible is the primary source of evil in this world.

    Just because “Judeo-Christian” is a modern term does not invalidate it. I am sure the Israelis would promote it because being a parasitic and aggressive state, they want the protection of the primarily Christian nations. Amerika is Israel’s greatest ally so says Jews.

    I do not promote Judeo-Christianity for anything Israel, I do it for people to wake up and smell the napalm, that Jews are in control of Christian nations primarly because of their faith – not money or banking or the Fed, but the faith of hundreds of millions of devout Christians.

    And as I said before, without the Old Testament their can be no New Testament, and every Bible waving, podium pounding televangelist lunatic knows this, thus Jews and their construct of God must be protected for Christianity – that is sold by the most unscrupulous, greedy, conniving pastors who know the real score, that is there can be no Jesus and no redemption without the judging father god found in the OT.

    Without the condemnation of man in the OT, and the fall of man in the Garden, there would be no reason for redemption from sin. And since so many devout Christians believe this, and want to get into heaven, they will do anything, commit any war act in obedience to the state which claims to be representing God.

    What I had meant was that Judaism is not a religion today, because the core of the Torah, blood sacrifice for the atonement of sin, got thrown out in Jesus’s time and with destruction of temple. No Jew has practiced Judaism in 2.000 years, but made up a Talmudic man-made cult instead. So what a Jew was then is not what a Jew is now – hence, the equivocation fallacy.

    Jews have all these odd terms they use, often proudly, like half-Jewish, secular Jew, Jewish atheist, de-racinated Jew, JuBu, Messianic Jew, etc. I just ask simply how can someone be half-Jewish if Judaism is a religion? Therefore, it isn’t. Has anyone ever heard of a half-Christian?

  179. @anarchyst

    The New Testament (NT) is just as big of an abomination as the OT. Jesus affirms the Torah. No real avatar would ever do that, so Jesus affirms the Law, and the law is our curse.

    Jesus, of course, never existed. There is no such thing as a man who walks on water or raises the dead, that is fiction.

    Much of the OT is also proven fiction, just read Shlomo Sands about the invention of the Jewish people.

    If you read Caesar’s Messiah by Joseph Atwill, he proves that Rome wrote the NT. The NT is about obedience to the state (see Romans 13) it is not about getting into heaven.

    1. There is no such thing as “sin”, it is only a theological construct.

    2. No other man, not Jesus, not anyone can absolve you of what you do. You do it, you own it.

    3. Afterlife is unproven. Since people don’t want to die (because they are self aware), religion that promises heaven was invented by con artists who cleverly write holy text to control and enslave the masses.

    4. State Authority was originally gotten by belief in a higher power. The God meme is how the state was established.

    5. Belief in the soul. The soul and afterlife is not proven. When you are dead you are dead, so the priest invented the soul because some part of you had to survive for heaven to be sold to you like a bag of potato chips.

    All you need to know about the deep state is a quote from the 2006 film The Good Shepherd

    Joseph Palmi : Let me ask you something… we Italians, we got our families, and we got the church; the Irish, they have the homeland, Jews their tradition; even the n——, they got their music. What about you people, Mr. Wilson, what do you have?

    Edward Wilson (CIA) : The United States of America. The rest of you are just visiting.

    It’s hard to believe that the core 60s group that assassinated Kennedy and his brother (assisted by some foreign assets) decided to go full diversity and give their country up (to communist hippies of all things).

    Is there a gap in the general public about how government or even large institutions/corporations work? Absolutely. The vast majority of humans have never worked for major institutions to understand how slow change or reaction can be. How easily trust can be abused. The five layers of management is there to protect incompetence (“how does a manager learn from a bad mistake if he’s fired?” type of illiteracy that allows banks to get bailed, health ministries to perform poorly and sex offenders to get bonuses).

    I remember Robert McNamara in an interview picture called “Fog of War” (Sony) would at times say “I can’t talk about that, I’d get in trouble if what I say is misinterpreted”… “if you knew what I knew and answered that question a lot of people will interpret it the wrong way” … so on and so on.

    And he wasn’t even CIA…. sure a Secretary of Defence is more senior but it does give an air that something lurks in bad places. A man nearing his death would care little about misinterpretation or getting in trouble unless his family would pay the price… and he didn’t even really say anything that wasn’t known and people got all uppity…

    CIA now is bigger and has more departments, it even hires Mohammedans and China men, how tolerant… but unless it went full retard there remains the true core, THE CENTRE if you will, that can obfuscate plans and intention. The department that was once OSS in WW2, then CIA, now 16,729 different agencies named and unnamed.

    A great warrior becomes even greater by becoming invisible.

    [MORE]

    The department where intelligence on “Iraqi WMDs” came from and silenced other senior agents/analysts from ‘rocking the boat’. The guys who killed Solemani in Iraq and give priority air space for Saudi royals to escape America three days after 9/11. That turn a blind eye to Israeli spies. That release nonsense about UFO/UAO to distract plebs. That kill a US Army NBC technician responsible for mailing anthrax before he can get to the stand (much like Sirhan). Or crashing a reporter by messing up his on-board computer in his car.

    Then you hear things from the Obama-era whose entire family had some intelligence/CIA connection. Rumoured internet kill switch, which implies they can probably throttle speeds in crisis and even disconnect specific users/hosts (or at least make it a hassle). The same Obezzie who got OBL, which Hollywood promptly released a film (at RECORD speeds) about the entire narrative. Talk about coordination. Cemented in history. Reddit, a popular site for plebs, has been proven to be over-filled with bots many of which have IPs stemming from Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

    Now you say Obamas pick created a task force to discredit Trump. Interesting….

    There are some who believe that Snowden himself is a CIA operation geared towards the NSA as the world moves to the digital. Anecdotal evidence indicates those that try to contact Snowden (or recommended institutes by Snowden) to leak US injustices seem to get found out and punished. Obama also spearheaded some form of anti-whistle blower legislation…. gotta love the timing on all these things. As if there’s a plan.

    The deep state exists in many forms, in many mediums. Sometimes they meet and drink Turkish coffee on Zoom. Sometimes it’s an unspoken agreement, with JFK as the prime example to those that dare to break it.

    Trump may have resisted war but he never threatened to break CIA into a thousand pieces. They tried to humiliate Trump but a man with no shame cannot be humiliated. So they just rig it to oust him this round.

    “I would, nevertheless, argue that their behavior, though it exploited intelligence resources, was not intrinsic to the organizations that they led, that the three of them were part and parcel of the real Deep State, which consists of a consensus view on running the country that is held by nearly all of the elements that together make up the American Establishment, with its political power focused in Washington and its financial center in New York City.”

    He is being deceptive. The above is all true, except for the “was not intrinsic to the organizations that they led” which is a subtle tactic to start weakening the larger argument down the line and/or to cause doubts/confusion in the minds of the reader. This is a very sneaky method of literary rhetorical sophistry…very Talmudic.

    The CIA does not set the agenda, but it is intrinsic and a very integral part of the deep state and high finance/international Jewery. It is muscle, an important drug dealer, gun smuggler, assassin, agitator, propagandist, etc.

    There’s a question itching me Mr. Giraldi. If the men working for the CIA are so honourable, why do they maintain a database of paedophile material and why do they plant such material on people they deem “of interest”?

  187. One of the first comments speaks of the DS as composed of different groups. I am inclined to agree with that. It’s an heterogeneous group. Some people have very limited interests like selling some products for the state. Others seeks political power and small advantages and they are happy if they get that. Others want to make their branch strong. Others have limited ideological interests. Others only want money.

    The art of the DS is to submit all those interests under a larger aim, to make newspapers work for them. The people who are on the top of the DS are the ones who coordinate all that, who see what resource each group has and how these resources can be used and what rewards this group gets for the use of their resources.

    The question is, which group is decisive, which group has an overarching ideology, what is this ideology? What is the group that has cohesion, that has money, that controls many resources, that can punish those that don’t behave well, that has people in several different branches, and that can move the DS in the direction that it wants? This is the core of the DS.

  188. I think also that the American elites have capitulated and lost control of the state. They were relatively naive and had a local basis, they had and insecure position because of the diversification of the country, because of the protests of the 60s, because of pressure in a few areas. Today many Americans lives in a situation of economic uncertainty and were forced to an attitude of conformism while a few have a very strong and secure position, but there was a price for that: conformism. This was the time and the opportunity for the gangsters to rule the country as they want.

    “Judeo-Christian” is an accurate term; the Bible itself says Christians are a Jewish cult “grafted” onto the Jewish-tree. That means Christianity has Jewish roots. It doesn’t matter if certain older branches of Judaism have died off, or all Jewish branches have died off, the Judeo-rooted cult of Christianity has Jewish roots. Jews and Christians have much in common, because the New Testament is merely an extension of the Old Testament Jewish beliefs, including this small sampling:

    • The Judeo cult of Christianity identifies its members as “The Circumcision.”
    • The Judeo cult of Christianity celebrate the child-sacrifice holiday of “Passover.”
    • The Jewish Rabbi Jesus openly stated that “Salvation is from the Jews.”
    • The Jewish author Paul wrote that the “[Goyim] owe it to the Jews.”

    Again, the four examples above are only a very small sampling; the Jews’ Old Testament is quoted 695 times and referenced 4,105 times in the Jews’ New Testament! Furthermore, Scofield didn’t write the Bible, he only referenced, documented, and popularized the embarrassingly abundant connections between the Old and New Testament.

    Stupid Christian Zionists, say you? Then consider this: Christ is Kang! — of a foreign, middle-eastern capital city called “Zion.” Thus, Christian Zionist is a redundant term. Stupid is a quite descriptive assessment of any White man who worships a foreign Jewish kang of a foreign Jewish capital half a world away. Get smart!

    In this recent Telegram comment, Eric Striker does a good job exposing how our political process is being subverted in Europe and the Anglo-sphere…

    The new Dutch Party FvD that got into a parliament has a fairly good platform, even if I disagree with them on a number of economic issues. https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=nl&u=https://www.fvd.nl/&prev=search&pto=aue

    But there’s one problem.

    FvD’s leader, Thierry Baudet, has for years been groomed by the Israeli neo-con Yoram Hazony, whose network of Jewish donors finance phony populists across Europe.

    Why does a Dutch patriotic party need a weirdly specific foreign policy stance in support of Israel other than they’re sold out and won’t keep their promises other than support Israel if they get into power?

    Just like with previous iterations like Geert Wilders’ PVV, which they’re now phasing out, Jews create these parties as placeholders to collect populist angst.

    The uprisings in Italy shortly before Salvini was put into power was led by Fascists and Nationalists who came within inches of forcing the government to put them in power. They should’ve kept the pressure on.

    Now Italy is full of these astroturfed, US Jew funded parties like “Brothers of Italy” or the rebranded kleptocrats of Forza Italia.

    All we can do when Western governments ruthlessly suppress real nationalists (see: Golden Dawn) is make sure through agitation that the mass rejection of liberalism, multi-culturalism and globalism never ends until we get what we want.

    We should not be placated until Jewish control over America and Europe ends.

    Hazony and co are trying to put our people back to sleep with this new brand of politics that is purely aesthetic, but delivers exactly 0 wins on policy and program.

    Christianity stresses pacificism…..abhors violence

    This is ultimately false. Christianity stresses surrender. As you say, Christ came to save the Jews, and in the Gospels he stresses that he has only been sent to the Jews, that his teachings are only directed at the Jews, more specifically that the Jews of his generation are evil and that he has come to redeem sinners. Not to redeem the righteous. This is why Christianity is inescapably Jewish: because Christ says his teachings are only for evil Jews.

    And what does he tell the evil Jews to do? He tells them to give up the laws of their forefathers. He tells them to turn the other cheek to their attacker, to never resist their enemies, and to not fear killers of the body. Additionally he tells them to abandon their families and their property, give up all their wealth, and become like wild animals, with no thought for tomorrow. This is Christianity, according to the Gospels.

    Jesus, supposedly teaching in the year 30, predicts the wrath of the Son of Man, who will encircle and despoil Jerusalem in the glory of his Father, leaving the Temple with not one stone set upon another. Titus precisely fulfilled these prophecies in 70 CE, exactly when Jesus said he would: within a generation of the crucifixion. Titus was no pacifist; he destroyed Jerusalem and most of Jewry along with it. He is the unspoken proponent of Christianity. When Jesus teaches the Jews to surrender, he is only preparing the way for Rome to conquer their capital. This is not really pacifism.

    The real heart of the issue is that the Tanakh is a perfect justification for imperial hegemony, if only its covenants could be amended a bit, to take away from Jews their idea of being racially “chosen” to subdue the world for YHWH.

    No White person should care in the least about any Middle East religion. Those Abrahamic religions are not about white people, not for white people, and should not be followed by white people. Judaism is rooted in an ancient penis worshipping cult, no modern man should even want to practice ancient penile worship.

    [MORE]

    The fact that white people (and other races also) have been caught up believing the garbage called the Holy Bible is the downfall of white man (and those other races who identify with the Bible). The Bible is not about you if you are a white Christian, those tales of redemption in the desert are not about germanic tribes in the forest, you do not need salvation from the angry sky god Yahweh, your soul can not be saved by the Jewish Rabbi Jesus. No one can shed blood for your sins, and sin is a theological construct, not real. If you make a mistake, it was your mistake, there is no such thing as sin, nor can anything you do separate you from God. Just think about that for a minute and then see that the entire OT and NT construct is a spell on your mind.

    The Bible is a racist propaganda tool of the Rabbinic class establishing supremacy of this one tribe; Jews are made the most godly people (talk about wishful thinking, LOL) on the planet as god’s chosen people, and if you believe that garbage you are owned and become a tool of Judaism. Christians are accepting second string status by believing and following a Jewish written book, that is about promoting Jewish prejudices like circumcision, which is integral to a phallus domination cult that uses the Menorah as their prime holy symbol.

    So when you talk about the so-called “Deep State” that no one can identify, it is the matrix of Jewish deceit that pervades every corner of our society. From our laws to our viewpoint of reality. Jewish supremacism is found in the Court, where one man decides your fate, and that man, a Judge wearing a robe, is a continuation of the Rabbinic class of judges in their priestly robes – who passed judgment on the rabble, if you criticized the Rabbi you could be put to death.

    This idea that you can be judged is the prime quality of Jewish thinking. You have to take a walk with a native elder and see this in your mind, the native americans had no jails, no judges, no police, no arrests, etc. Indians never drafted or forced anyone to take part in a war, it was always an individual decision.

    Imagine no property taxes, imagine no hunting permits, imagine no 9-5 job, imagine a life of no fines, pollution, vaccinations, bioweapons, nuclear weapons, televisions, televangelists. All of the evil of modern society is a product and end result of Jewish thinking, the idea of the state and the courts, jails, etc. The deep state is this pathological viewpoint of reality that we are all immersed in, it is Jewish in origin, and it is killing us all and the life on this planet.

    @anarchyst

    Christianity is wholly contingent on Judaism. Jesus is named after the Hebrew superhero Joshua. His name was coined by Moses before he died, to mean “salvation of Yah”. New Testament Jesus is said to be “Christ” which is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Messiah, appearing dozens of times in the Septuagint since its publication in ~250 BCE. It would be as if I made up a fiction about U.S. history, and named my main character Jefferson Superhero, and then you came along and said he had nothing to do with America.

    Furthermore, the writings of Paul, which are the earliest foundation of Christian literature, are obviously indebted to to the cosmology of Isaiah and the other Hebrew prophets. Paul says Christianity does not offer wisdom, or miracles: his Jesus Christ may have only lowered himself to the third heaven and not all the way to Earth, before he allowed himself to be impaled by archons. No one in Paul’s universe saw Jesus Christ before the resurrection. Paul in effect is writing to explain why the prophecies of Isaiah (the foundation of Zion) have not come to pass. Paul is explaining that even though the prophecies have not been fulfilled on Earth, they have been fulfilled in heaven. Paul reproduces Isaiah’s seething resentment of errant Jews and Israelites, homosexuals and wanton women, his vitriol towards “pagan” culture. And all these attitudes are well represented in Christianity today. But Paul says there is no great teacher of his generation, no famous healer, no political dissident or activist. Paul asks his followers to have faith in the unseen and non existent. This is one reason why the Gospels’ claims to be eyewitness accounts to the life of a world famous healer and philosopher are so absurd.

    The Gospels are so littered with references to the Septuagint, there is a reason they must be bundled together. The New Testament would make exactly zero sense without the Old. Whatever sense you could make out of it would be based on a work of fiction, a revision of a revision of a revision of a plagiarized myth.

    RE: Isaiah’s vitriol towards “pagan” culture.

    Isaiah even hates Whitey’s ancesteral pagan God! “But you who forsake Yahweh, who forget my holy mountain, who prepare a table for G_D…” (Isaiah 65:11) Of course, the Hebrew has no vowels, so the dishonest christmongers translated the passage with a deliberately confusing “a.” Understanding why now?

    Jewish-authored Christianity has successfully turned Europeans against their own ancient ancestoral Gawd, but the only way to force such Jewish bile down their throats was to call the Jewish deity by the name of their ancient ancestoral Gawd/God/Godin/Odin/Wodin/Wotan. In modern context: Christianity is a JLM (Jew-Lives-Matter) movement that got Whites to worshiping a Rabbi as their Gawd, similiar to if BLM (Black-Lives-Matter) ever got Whites to worship the nigger St. Floyd as Gawd. Whites had better repent and return to worshiping their indigineous ancestoral GawD, if they want to be ancestors of future generations.

    I can agree that the DS is like the Mafia, but the Mafia does indeed coordinate its activities; also with law enforcement, no less (bribes). Phil seems to agree with you, but only because he seems not to be able to imagine how (where) the coordination takes place.

    One problem with the theory about total global dominance through espionage is the sheer logistics of it all. Directing political and economic developments in two hundred nations simultaneously must require a lot of space and a large staff. Is there a huge office hidden in Langley? Or the Pentagon? Or in the White House West Wing itself? Or is it in one of the secure facilities that have been popping up like mushrooms just off of the Dulles Toll Road in Herndon Virginia?

    But to my reckoning, there definitely exists a framework which could serve exactly such a function, as described in this article:

    https://www.newsweek.com/exclusive-inside-militarys-top-secret-plans-if-coronavirus-cripples-government-1492878
    “Above-Top Secret contingency plans already exist for what the military is supposed to do if all the Constitutional successors are incapacitated. Standby orders were issued more than three weeks ago to ready these plans, not just to protect Washington but also to prepare for the possibility of some form of martial law.
    According to new documents and interviews with military experts, the various plans – codenamed Octagon, Freejack and Zodiac – are the underground laws to ensure government continuity. They are so secret that under these extraordinary plans, “devolution” could circumvent the normal Constitutional provisions for government succession, and military commanders could be placed in control around America.”
    “In July 2016, Barack Obama signed the classified Presidential Policy Directive 40 on “National Continuity Policy,” establishing “essential functions” that government agencies were tasked to protect and retain. At the highest level were the National Essential Functions, those that posit “the continued functioning” of government under the Constitution. In order to preserve Constitutional rule, agencies were ordered to have not just a line of succession but also one of “devolution,” a duplicate chain of individuals secreted outside Washington available in a catastrophic emergency. Federal Continuity Directive 1, issued just days before Donald Trump became president, says that devolution has to establish “procedures to transfer statutory authority and responsibilities” to this secondary designated staff to sustain essential functions.”

    “One of the “national essential functions”, according to Federal Continuity Directive 1 is that the government “provid[e] leadership visible to the Nation and the world … [while] maintaining the trust and confidence of the American people” The question is whether a faceless elite could ever provide that confidence, preserving government command but also adding to public panic. That could be a virus too.”

    In an interview, on this piece (https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/3-20-20-william-arkin-on-the-militarys-top-secret-coronavirus-plans/), the author discussed the fact that in order to preclude a scenario in which some eggheads were dragged out of some bunkers and proclaimed “leader,” a la Gualdo, the project, as it were, has on retainer such known figures as Colin Powell, or John Kerry, etc..

    Well, how much of a conspiracy is it really to assume that exactly such a scenario was hatched up by these people to get rid of Trump and to persecute his supporters. It seems to me one of the best way to explain perfectly coordinated confederacy of dunces which were paraded publicly on the stage in the run-up to the 2020 election.

    The complete coordination between media, social media and tech giants, and the various pronouncements interspersed by military and spook agency personnel, as well as with these decrepit fools in Congress, all parroting each other, could only have been choreographed by a such bureaucratic clusterfu** organization. This would at once also explain their incredible gall and glaring stupidity in trying to get away with this obviously transparent scheme. Yeah, they certainly got away with it, but they fooled only the consenting fools.

    Part of the Talmudic plan to devastate its ‘enemies’ is to do a thorough job. So, blow up all civilian infrastructure, returning them to the Stone Age, steal or destroy cultural antiquities, particularly those that give the lie to ‘Biblical archeology’. Target and slaughter children, through sanctions, as in Iraq, and directly as in Gaza, Syria etc. Break countries up if possible eg Sudan, attempts in Iraq and Syria, possibly Libya.

    You have written a disinformation post. If you want to talk about the Mafia’s role in the assassination of JFK you need to follow the pertinent career and actions of Lansky. If you are looking for “proof” of Israel’s role you need to see the exchanges between JFK and Ben Gurion regarding Dimona and nuclear weapons more generally, as well as to track Ben Gurion’s well established and unrestricted use of assassinations of persons perceived as working against Israeli interests. The important nexus is Ben Gurion, Dulles, Angleton and Lansky. It is most likely that the Israeli state with assistance from Lansky’s organized crime network successfully collaborated with elements within the CIA and, more generally, within the Democratic Party and US government. The country can’t recover without some genuine attempt to reverse engineer the nexus that controlled it then and controls it now. If you know what you write, you also know that.

    I abbreviated a 700 page fully foot noted book and its conclusions. It is a compelling study backed by documentation, including recordings which reach conclusions which may not be correct in every detail, but make sense better than anything else I have read.

    I have already conceded that, like the mafia, Israel had the means and history to pull something like that off. They may had also had a motive, but whether that rises to the level of US Presidential assassination is less certain. You already admitted your interpretation is “most likely”, yet hardly certain.

    Robert and Jack Kennedy were going to shut the mafia and one of their co-conspirators Hoffa down and they were well on their way to doing it until JFK was shot. White Supremacist Milteer worked with Marcello when JFK was assassinated and paid Marcello $300,000 to assassinate MLK. He raised that money from a variety of individuals and racist organizations. Marcello saw MLK as someone who was bad for business anyway. Once RFK waa on the verge of winning the Democratic nomination for President, the mafia bosses knew they had to take him out too, or they would be facing renewed prosecution for their businesses and JFK.

    The documentation for “Legacy of Secrecy” is of a high standard, even better than the outstanding “The Dark Alliance”. But its impossible to compile it completely here. If you have a similar work detailing JFK’s assassination to Mossad, I would be happy to read it. It might even expose a higher level of direction above the “Legacy of Secrecy” plot, which ends with mafia bosses who worked with the CIA.

    Yeah, exactly, annamaria, just the threat of withdrawing from anywhere definitely got the chief culprits in the establishment all in a tizzy.

    But seeing how things have developed the last couple of years and especially since covid, I’m beginning to suspect that these guys were looking out at the horizon and began to realize that the whole financial shitshow is running on very thin ice. That, that and the retiring baby boomers would spell a big catastrophe in the near future, and so they decided to pull the plug on the whole thing themselves in order to guarantee that they, themselves would land on top again. Very similar to the role they played in the ‘great depression’ when the ‘Brain Trust’ commies at Colombia couldn’t possibly have done more to destroy the economy and make everyone dependent, until they had to pull the brake on the operation in order to bail ‘Staliin’s’ chestnuts out of the fire.

    Nothing else for me would explain the wholehearted enthusiasm they have to destroy the very machine of oil and graft which they’ve built over the last couple of years. So I do suspect that this “Continuity of Government” type of agency is the perfect vehicle to have coordinated all these operations against the constitutional government. … and I don’t think they’re anywhere near finished.

    Excerpt from, American Pravda: the JFK Assassination, Part II – Who Did It?:

    A quarter century ago, Final Judgment provided an enormous mass of circumstantial evidence suggesting a major, even dominant, role for the Israeli Mossad in organizing the elimination of both our 35rd president and also his younger brother, a scenario that seems second in likelihood only to that of Johnson’s involvement.

  223. Johan says:

    The QAnon theories and its derivatives are tailored to the inherent hostility, paranoia and vulgarity of the secular democratic modern peoples. Tailored to, and a product of such people.

    Alexis de Tocqueville reflected on several observations he made of the tendencies of democratic people in his work Democracy in America. One of the main characteristics of a democracy is that individuals are insignificant and powerless, all power is a matter of forming collective associations, so that the insignificant individuals whom are made insignificant because of, among other things, the tendency of equalization, the democratic creed of equality, can only assert power and influence by means of the combination of a great number of individuals.

    The views of democratic historians are also based upon his democratic and equalizing tendencies, for secular democratic man there are no really great historical heroes, people who have changed the course of evolution. Secular democratic man only sees changes caused by mass powers, be they that of nature, or the power of masses of people like himself. He does hold an idea of some historical key figures, but only if he thinks they are representative of his ideas, and often he criticizes them, considering himself more advanced. For the rest, great key figures and heroes are food for movies and entertainment, food for fantasies by means of which he can escape out of his insignificance for a moment.

    So we have the stage here of modern secular democratic man, and insignificant being equal to a multitude of others, only capable of asserting influence by means of mass association. A man who also considers himself most advanced, origin of many ideas (which he actually got from an elite), unable to see great heroes and great men (unless they reflect himself sufficiently). And furthermore, he feels himself subjugated to the grand forces of nature and the universe, which he intends to unravel.
    Add to this the brilliant observation of Oscar Wilde, that ‘the people can only throw mud’.

    So we have here modern secular democratic man, a mud throwing insignificant being, a type of man who by means of his own craze for equality and his own limited interests and capacities has levelled everything equal, including himself. This man in the later declined phase of his rule, when the situation is no longer the more healthy and vital barbarism which Tocqueville had observed long ago, started to have an idea that something is wrong with his democratic utopia. After a time of indulgence in his secular orgy of democracy and capitalism, he start to justly observe that there are mysterious powers which seem to be working, that he is no longer in control my means of his own collective associations, that even his mass associations (media, institutions) by means of which he dictated reality and progress are no longer in his control. That they seem to lead their own life… perhaps there seems to be something above his head? At least a minority of democratic people have come to this conclusion, justifiably so, and they have created new associations in order to warn the other democratic men of the impending evil.

    Key here is that there cannot be something which is above the head of modern secular democratic man, only something below him.. hence it must be dirty, in accordance to his imagination. Key is also that if something is not representative of him, it must be evil.

    Hence we arrive on the longer run at the explosive growth of conspiracy theories. Some of these theorists are throwing mud at alleged key figures and clubs of elites from the twentieth century, others are going further back, as far as millennia, their claim is that the Peoples Utopia of Freedom and Equality has always throughout history been sabotaged by evil elites and secret clubs. The theories are also vulgar and crude or less vulgar and crude in accordance with the vulgar imagination of the theorist and the public in question. They are in accordance with how low they are willing to steep to only see and dig up dirty mud which they can throw at elites.

    Not all dissident democratic man go that low by the way, some are keeping it noble, but an injection of the lowest of the crudest and the most vulgar like the QAnon narrative is bound to find quite some willing people, which then may split up into various theories of lesser vulgarity and crudeness.
