The Deep State Part 2

How it all Works

 

madteaparty_700Before I begin explaining how the deep state operates, I want to say something about making any conclusions. Calling what is going on in our government a “deep state” sounds very ominous. I have read countless stories blaming a “deep state” for everything from the floundering economy to the campaign against Trump. It is that, but it’s much more. The deep state has been with us for decades and is not a simple faction or organization of people that collectively know they are the deep state. It isn’t a sinister plot to destroy America, rather it is a collection of people and institutions doing what they believe needs to be done. The problem that arises is that there are no rules and consequently there is no oversight or accountability. This causes mass corruption. To say corruption is rampant would be a gross understatement of fact. In order to run a deep state, outside the laws of our country, or any country requires tons of cash….and boy, I’m talking a lot of cash. As I found out, in my 10 part series, “INTO THE WEEDS”, the cash that traveled through the Clinton Foundation was historic. I approached that series strictly from the point of view of corruption, but it became more than that.  The money from the corporate world, that found its way into the Clinton’s pockets, was also used to shape world events. Its still going on, and it can all be referred to as the status quo…..that so many in government and the corporate world want…..no!….. need, to have continue. The election of Trump was totally unexpected by the deep state. They never thought the American people would become wise to all they were doing to further their mission. I think we can credit technology and the internet age of communication as the vehicle that made it possible. Slowly but surely, Americans, at least, are becoming aware and educated into how government works, and why it’s not working for Americans.

Let’s begin, shall we?

In part 1 of this story, I outlined a bigger picture of the deep state as a fight between nationalism and globalism. I believe there has to be a reason for the deep state to exist. If you want a simple answer: the purpose of the deep state is to keep commerce working. And not just working, but flourishing. Although that answer is fundamental, it is way more complex than that. Up to 911, all situations in the world, no matter how complex, would respond to one of two stimuli: Money or force. The deep state controls both. What happened after 911 was the new problem of religion entering the equation. After 17 years, neither force nor money can dissuade radical Islam from its mission. But that’s another story for another day.

Also in part 1, I very briefly laid out a few names connected directly to the deep state. Of course, I hope you know, there are many, many players, all with various roles, which contribute to its maintaining its grip on governance. In case you haven’t noticed….notice now….that so many of the high officials in our government, are recycled from administration to administration. Eric Holder, deputy AG under Clinton, and AG under Obama. James Comey, Deputy AG under Bush Jr., and FBI director under Obama, George Bush Sr. VP under Reagan, then president. Loretta Lynch, lead US attorney in the New York District under Clinton, then AG under Obama. Louis Freeh, Appointed US District Court judge by Bush Sr. then FBI director under Clinton. Robert Mueller, assistant AG under Bush Sr. then FBI director under Bush Jr., now special council under Trump. On and on it goes. We are expected to believe these men and women are the most qualified people to serve. But what is more plausible, is their allegiance to the deep state. What allows the deep state to continue unabated, is its secrecy. I alluded to this in part 1. As long as the players are kept out of jail, allowed to keep their ill gotten gains, and not punished in any way, that secrecy remains in tact and the control is maintained. This is why the likes of James Comey, Eric Holder, John Ashcroft, Hillary Clinton and several presidents must be included. There is one exception to the rule of unequivocal secrecy. If secrecy is violated, or threatened to be violated……there is only one consequence. That consequence is death. And they all know it.

There’s an old saying that all investigators use to get to the truth. “Follow the money”. I did that. I can find where the money comes from, how it circulates. I can even tell you, who are getting a lot of it. But what I cannot find is how it is being used and where it winds up. I can make guesses, but that’s just what they are….guesses based on visible activities.

For example: In my piece on Gilbert Chagoury, a Nigerian businessman, I learned that he worked closely with Marc Rich, selling Nigerian oil, then skimmed money from the sale, laundered it through Russian or Swiss banks, then donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation, who then allowed America to look the other way in all his illegal activities. This example is absolutely not unusual. This is going on in Columbia, Iran, Angola, South Africa, Venezuela, Haiti, North Korea and dozens of other countries all over the world. The question to ask is why does America participate?

Like I said above the simple answer is “to keep commerce moving, and the money flowing into the right pockets”.  A more difficult answer to explain, is that many American players believe it is in our “interest” to do so. In some cases, this might even have credence. But in the bigger picture, this has done more harm to American prominence than any other single deed. It’s almost impossible to chronicle these events, without understanding why so many nations hate us. Our meddling in the affairs of other countries can have very large consequences. War, revolution, civil unrest, and especially terrorism are just some of those consequences.

I have had dozens of debates on isolationism. Before I began this research, I sensed that isolationism might be a better course than the course we’re on. Now I understand why I sensed that. There are those that believe sincerely that intervening in world affairs is our responsibility. In a fashion, after you understand the deep state, and understand why we intervene, you will soon gather that we are a direct cause of conflict in many countries, which causes the necessity for intervention. But let me also say, we are not the only cause. I am not an America basher. Corrupt leaders, poverty, ignorance, hunger, and other local problems also lead to poor outcomes. There are 193 countries in the world. We certainly don’t cause all the problems in all of them……just the ones that have the resources we want, in the furtherance of globalism and world commerce.

Marc Rich

 

The best way to explain how the deep state works is to look at one individual, you, most likely, never heard of…..Marc Rich. Marc Rich epitomizes the work of the deep state. Mr. Rich died in 2013, he was 78. In 1999 Mr. Rich was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list. He was an unconvicted fugitive, living in Zug, Switzerland. He ran a business named Glencore, which still exists. Glencore and Marc Rich were well known commodity traders. They bought oil, wheat, aluminum, coal, gold, and silver from anyone that would sell it, and then resell those commodities to anyone that would buy them. But why was it unusual…its done everyday? Right? This gets us to why Marc Rich was wanted.

glencore         David Simonds Glencore 13.05.12

In order for a foreign policy to work, sometimes America has to impose economic sanctions on countries that break economic trading rules, oppress their people, or misbehave in other ways. The only way economic sanctions can pay dividends and dissuade bad acts, is if all other countries honor those sanctions by enforcing them in their own countries. What Marc Rich did was defy those sanctions, He would buy oil from Iran, Cocoa from Columbia, coal from North Korea….all while they were under UN sanctions. He would sell those commodities on the spot market. When the US shut off Russian imports of our wheat due to sanctions imposed because of Russian intervention in Afghanistan, Marc Rich sold them wheat from Venezuela. As you might expect, someone can make a boatload of money doing this. But how can you get away with it? You see, while our “public” foreign policy is one thing, our deep state foreign policy is quite another. Let’s take Columbia for example. If Columbia’s president (Uribe) is ignoring drug lords that sell and ship cocaine, then sanctions on their shipments of their commodities might help to change those activities. BUT! What if there’s a commercial interest that need’s the president’s help to “keep commerce moving and the money flowing into the right pockets” ? It would seem in Columbia, they also had oil. The oil industry was a national industry….in other words owned and operated by the government. If your oil and other exports were under sanction, what should you do? Stop working with the drug lords, or find another  way to sell your commodities?  You call your friend Bill Clinton. He introduces you to

frank guistra
Bill Clinton, Frank Guistra, dedicating their work in Haiti

Frank Guistra from Canada who agrees to take over your oil industry….for a price, of course. Then that oil can be sold to Glencore, through several shell companies, and then sold on the spot market, and the money flows back through some Bermudans’ bank, with cuts coming off for all the players. Since the oil is not producing the revenues it once produced, the unions start whining about being paid. The president of Columbia can certainly help with this….and does. The CIA and DEA work to protect the entire operation. What does it look like to the people of Columbia and the world? The drug lords have control of the president. The president is corrupt, he is stealing from the people for the drug lords….and himself. The people are living in poverty while he gets rich. That may be true, but really the people that are making all the money are part of the deep state apparatus. The oil still flows, the other commodities get sold, and the sanctions are rendered feckless. What has to be understood, is the goals of our nation, based on our American values, are just for show. On the other hand, the goals of the deep state based on globalism, prevail. Frank Guistra donated $25 million to the Clinton Foundation and

 

denise rich

Denise Rich (Marc’s wife) donated over $100 million. You might ask why would the CIA and DEA go along with this? The people on the ground, I can only assume, have little idea what the big picture is…..they see the same show we see. Their job is to stop the drugs…..they are doing their jobs trying to help a perceived crooked president. And Marc Rich is helping them by furnishing valuable intelligence. The natural reaction of the people is to blame the US for supporting their crooked president. So whose fault is it? We do have a government that is more than capable of doing what’s right…..in this case, stopping the drug lords. But it isn’t easy, when the globalist deep state, actively works against those interests, to “keep commerce moving and the money flowing into the right pockets”.

Now for an even better example of how the deep state works. Russia! Lately, we have heard an awful lot about Russia. Our war with Russia goes back a long way. Communism has never been our thing and all of us have been indoctrinated to hate communists and Russians by extension. We have fought them in everyway possible…and literally, using the deep state, destroyed their economy, and brought the oligarchs to power, ending the cold war. Good thing, right?  Maybe not. Many of us have surely had the thought that if we were allied with Russia, our fight against terrorism and rogue nations in general, would be vastly enhanced. So why do Russians hate us? We continue to meddle in their affairs, in almost everyway possible. Why? To “keep commerce moving and the money flowing into the right pockets”.

In Reagan’s second term, our publicized foreign policy with Russia was one of achievable cooperation….Glasnost! (Openness) When Gorbachev came to power, he changed the climate of the cold war. We, as a nation, could have changed the world, if we would have embraced that opportunity. But sadly, the deep state had other ideas. They viewed the new policy as an opportunity to destroy Russia, and remove a competitor on the world stage, once and for all. The CIA was very busy devising ways to take Russia down. As trading rules were voluntarily relaxed by Gorbachev, they pounced. Marc Rich, who had close ties with Russian industry, and with the intelligence community, began to buy up billions and billions of Russian Rubbles. This destabilized the currency and caused very high inflation, approaching 300% in that year. It drove prices up by hundreds of percent. The government was unable to stop the inflation. With the Soviet Union in deep financial trouble, Gorbachev resigned, replaced by the popular Boris Yeltsin, the “reformer”. Yeltsin decide to, overnight, change Russia from a communist country to a capitalist, free market economy. He began the process of privatizing all Russian industry and communication businesses, to encourage foreign investment. He promptly gave every citizen a 10,000 ruble voucher, to buy shares in the companies they chose. But with all good intentions, someone will always take advantage. Several rich “investors” (soon to be called oligarchs) bought up millions of those vouchers and quickly took control of the Russian economy. Now what? How would these now private companies join the world market, but yet take advantage of their new found ventures? The CIA was all too willing to help. Enter Marc Rich. Not only could Rich help the CIA with intelligence, he could assist in destroying the Russian economy. Rich became the pivot point for moving Russian Commodities. In one instance he was offered Russian aluminum for pennies on the dollar, for which he paid cash…lots of cash, which the new oligarch pocketed and stiffed the workers. Rich then sold the aluminum on the spot market for far less than market prices, which in turn collapsed the price of aluminum across the world by 30%. This scenario played out in many Russian industries, ultimately, collapsing their economy. Many of these events benefited American companies by reducing commodity prices. The chaos caused in Russia was unprecedented. The deep state had done exactly what it set out to do. Marc Rich and his remaining Glencore, continue to be  a source of intrigue and a tool of the CIA to intervene in foreign affairs. A good thing? You’ll have to be the judge. It does further global interests, it assists a lot of multi-national corporations, and it “keeps commerce moving and the money flowing into the right pockets”.

So hopefully, you begin to see how powerful the deep state can be, and how secrecy is so important. Also why people are recycled in and out of the deep state. But not everybody in the world is blind to what is being done. Those that understand, do what they can to oppose America wherever they can. Are they justified? That’s a hard question to answer. The actions of the deep state, surely don’t match up with our American values, and really aren’t helping average Americans. Seemingly, the deep state is also crushing millions of lives in the rest of the world due to their many interventions. But what can be done?

As I stated above, Trump’s election was a shock to the deep state. He’s not a player. He hasn’t quite grasped the enormity of the deep state. The deep state needs cooperation and secrecy from the executive branch. Trump doesn’t appear to be  providing that cooperation, so they must find a way to stop his interference in the status quo. So far, he hasn’t done enough to upset the apple cart. Just this week Trump has turned his attention to foreign policy…the purview of the deep state. Will he be able to change course without facing opposition? We shall see!

The Deep State, Part 1

What is it, and is it a bad thing?

black-hawk-helicopter-3.jpg

I recently gave a talk about the Deep State. It is real! Although many of us have wondered about the strange policies coming from Washington for a very long time, we have mostly shrugged it off as politics. But what I found was a concerted effort by a few in government and business to run America the way “they” think it should be run. From the economy to foreign policy, things are done that absolutely defy the will of the people, break laws, and supplant the constitution. But who are “they” that perpetrate this arbitrary rule over America? We often hear the terms elite, establishment,  bureaucracy or swamp, to describe an unnamed, unknown force in Washington that does these things, never really knowing what or who those people are by name. But there are faces and names behind those vague descriptions of the entities that make up a Deep State within our government and society.

When those of us that understand the Deep State speak of it, we look at it as a bad, and maybe even an evil thing. But is it? Can laws sometime get in the way of doing things that need to be done? Are principles too hard to uphold, when other countries use those principles against us? Do ends justify means? Of course these are rhetorical and hard questions, but I would submit, they are questions asked and answered everyday in Washington and New York.

To understand the deep state, you first must understand the difference between Nationalism and Globalism. First, nationalism is an easy concept, but let me briefly explain it. From the early Greeks, humans figured out that the best way to live with each other is to stake out an area, create rules, create commerce, and live by a certain moral framework found in anyone of several religions. The Greeks called it a “city-state”. More modern times call it a “nation-state”. But the parameters and idea is the same. For 26 centuries the nation-state, has been the way civilization has evolved. Each citizen or inhabitant of the nation-state, held some identity with that state, a certain loyalty. Patriotism if you will. All members of the nation state had commonality in language, customs, rules, and terrain. They became protective of all those things. Nation-states chose leaders or leaders chose themselves, to protect the people, the property, the land and everything within its borders. However, as is human nature, some nation states wanted what another nation state had….a resource, their wealth, or a location. Sometimes this led to war. For most of those 26 centuries, war has been the flaw in Nationalism. The more nationalistic the world became the more and bigger wars that occurred.

Sometime after WWII, (1954) some rich and powerful people came together to see if they could solve this dilemma created by nationalism. WWII had devastated the planet. 70 million people were killed. Millions and millions more were hurt….millions displaced and homeless. More property was destroyed than existed. Fortunes were lost, resources were squandered, and starvation was everywhere. It was thought by these men that nationalism was at the root of the problem. As countries became more populated, they became more industrialized. They needed more of everything to sustain their populations and their economies.  These folks concluded that to stop the cycle of war, the nation-state or national interests must be replaced with global interests. At the time it was referred to as Atlanticism, and promoted as a “better understanding” of US-European relationships. This group of people was called the Bilderberg Group, as its first meeting, in 1954, was held in the Bilderberg Hotel, in the Netherlands. It continues to exist today, with the continuous participation of the CIA, since the beginning, and prominent corporate leaders such as Jeff Bezos of Amazon and Bill Gates of Microsoft, and plenty of other political and government elites such as Hillary Clinton, Tim Geithner, Henry Kissinger, Condolisa Rice, and Colin Powell. The hallmark of these members,  is the extreme secrecy of the gatherings. The shear mention of the Bilderberg Group has always been synonomous with conspiracy, but I am convinced that this large group of elites believes they are saving the world, with an ends justifies the means strategy.

National governments would  be replaced with global governance, commerce could exist world-wide, and resources could be shared by all, war could be a thing of the past….at least war on the scale of WWI and WWII. Thus, these few powerful people, fathered globalism.  It started harmlessly enough. Right after WWII, the United Nations was created. Finally an organization that could be the model for global governance. A body made up of all the nation-states of the world, that could come together to govern the planet.  But it was soon discovered that few countries were willing to give up their sovereignty…..their nation-state status, or their ability to control their own state.  Nationalism wasn’t going away anytime soon. So a new course was set. a long term solution to eventually arrive at the needed solution. Three things would have to be subverted within nations to achieve the required goals!

First, the institutional family had to be changed. Family structure is the fundamental building block of a society. It is structured in such a way that the father has the responsibility of providing for the rest of the family. To do this he needs to work. He needs a job, something to do that exchanges his labor for the things he needs. The mother’s traditional role was to have and nurture children. To populate the society. Needing a job, required resources, industry, a growing economy. A growing population required more of everything, and eventually, more jobs. The globalists believed these two fundamental functions of the family, is what leads to nationalism and war. If the population could be controlled, the need for jobs would be lessened. If the need for jobs was lessened, the demand for resources would decline, and expansionist desire would diminish.

Next, there must be a concerted effort to end or diminish the influence religion has over the culture. They recognize that a belief in God, only strengthens the values that build families. Religion is where we learn what our common values are. But religion and faith in God do something else……it teaches us to be self-reliant, and trust only in God. Not only that, but because religious beliefs can be so strong, opposing religions themselves, can be a source for war.  The globalists believe that faith must be in the state. The values that family and religion heap upon the citizens of a nation-state must be replaced with reliance and dependence on the state.

Finally, if control over the most powerful nation-states can be achieved by eliminating national governance and them with global governance, then the mission will be complete. So first, degrade and destroy the family, next discredit, marginalize, and destroy religion. Finally, create a dependence on the state, while subverting that state to conform with a global agenda.

So far, the strategy of the globalists is working, at least in the developed world. Europe’s population is declining and the birth rate of its citizens is far below where it needs to be to maintain the culture. In America, the birth rate is barely sustaining the population. And even in China, the population is controlled by force of law. Religion in the developed world is under assault. Although in Europe many claim to be Christian, it no longer acts like it. In my visit to Europe in 2005, I went on a tour of the famous churches in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Even on Sunday, the churches were empty.  The young have been led away from faith by the education system and the culture of tolerance and multi-culturalism. In America, Christianity has been attacked on many fronts. Universities, consumerism, abortion activism, and the government. Faith and religion has been systematically removed from the public square.  All over the world Islam is killing and attacking all other faiths and making it impossible for any of them to flourish. But Islam is not replacing those religions with merely another faith, but with an extreme ideology of conformance  or death.  You have to ask yourself are these things all simply happening at the same time, just circumstance? The natural order of things? Or are they being orchestrated by a globalist agenda. The more the people suffer, the more likely they are to turn to the state for solutions. But those solutions are no where to be found. The leaders, even ours, before Trump, are turning to global solutions. Nation-states  already turn to the United Nations security council before they take any action. They seek UN resolutions to bring other nation-states into compliance with global standards.  So if this is being orchestrated….who is behind it?

The Deep State is bigger than just a few politicians and bureacrats. It is fostered mainly by powerful, wealthy, multi-national corporations and financial institutions. Companies like Dow, Coke-Cola, Morgan Stanley, Chase, Goldman Sachs, Boeing, GE, Exxon, and many others. These businesses have huge investments in countries all over the world. They would not risk billions of dollars, without having some control over world affairs. These powerful special interests are the ones that provide the money that controls the politicians in the Deep State.

In my exhaustive study of the Clinton Foundation, I found links to several foundations that seem to be clearing houses for these funds. The Radcliffe Foundation in Canada, The Hellenic Initiative, The McCain Institute, The Cowen Group, Open Society, and The Rockefeller Foundation are but a few of these clouded funding sources. At first I thought it was a simple pay for play scheme created by greedy and corrupt individuals. But its more than that. Oh sure, there may be a lot of corruption, but much of what is being done is to shape the world and advance a global agenda. I found strong ties between these foundations and the intelligence community. The money passes from the corporations, to the foundations, to consulting companies, then to the CIA and private, covert paramilitary groups. What the money is used for, encompasses a wide variety of activity, all organized by the Deep State. Things like assassinations, currency manipulation, union bashing, coups, funding of terrorists, and overthrows of governments. All to maintain peace and keep commerce flowing, so investments are not put at risk. Like I said at the beginning…..the natural reaction is to think this is a bad thing and evil. It certainly is unlawful, but yet, is it needed?

Up to this point in the story, its all conjecture based on my research, but I do have examples that will help to put meat on the bones. As I go through these examples and profiles, try to remember the names, as they will come up in other places.

3342788AW015_AshcroftJohn Ashcroft. I’m not going to relay his entire life, but just the activities that lead up to his involvement in the deep state. You can read about Mr. Ashcroft here:

I suppose what Ashcroft does for a living is legal, but I just can’t recall where in the constitution the federal government was given the power to create private armies, then use those armies to perform military tasks for that government. And all while the American people have no idea what or why they are doing what they are doing. We are just paying for it.

Mr. Ashcroft is in the mercenary business. He employs thousands of ex-military, ex-law enforcement, and general tough guys to operate clandestine operations in foreign lands. In turn Mr. Ashcroft’s business, Constellis lands huge contracts from our government to do things that few actually know what they are. Here are just two headlines pulled from financial publications:

“Triple Canopy Wins $47.8M Federal Protective Services Contract”

“Constellis Awarded $975 Million Department of Defense (DoD) Counter Narcotics and Global Threats (CN & GT) Contract”

Since you probably never heard of Constellis, you should know they were formerly known as Alchemi. Never heard of Alchemi? It was formerly known as Xe Services. What? Never heard of them either? Well then, what about Black Water? Yes, Constellis started out as Black Water. Black Water had developed such a bad reputation in Iraq that I suppose it had to change its name. Remember these private mercenaries aren’t necessarily bound my military rules. But Constellis is much larger now. Even with all the scandals created by these “contractors” they are growing. Over the last 5 years, Constellis has been busy buying up all companies that deal in private security, computer hacking, intelligence, and war fair. Triple Canopy, Olive Group, Edinburgh International, Strategic Social, Apollo Group, and the most recent, the Centerra Group have all been added to Constellis’ stable. As long as there’s money, our deep state government can project its plans anywhere in the world by using these private companies, without getting permission from congress or the president. Secrecy is their main selling point.

So how does John Ashcroft, a CEO of a private company connect to such a conspiratorial entity as the Deep State? In 2000, Mr. Ashcroft became Attorney General under GW Bush. Right after his appointment and confirmation, 911 happened. Shortly after that we got the Patriot Act, which legalized all forms of warrantless surveillance. Something we are learning much more about….17 years later.

But let’s move on, shall we?

comey

Jim Comey. We all know who Jim Comey is. The now former FBI director, Comey has been part of the deep state for a long time. He has been one of those players that has been used to cover up crimes and make criminal acts go away. The deep state not only needs guys like Ashcroft to carry out missions, but it needs guys like Comey to keep it all secret.

Comey started his journey through the deep state prosecuting the Whitewater Investigation against Bill and Hillary Clinton. If I recall, no indictments or prosecutions ever occurred in that scandal. I say that with tongue in cheek, because no indictments or prosecutions ever take place with anyone connected to the deep state. It cannot be exposed, so punishing anyone using our constitution or statutes would risk exposure.  Comey became a Federal Prosecutor of the Southern New York District under GW Bush. Then, quickly became Deputy Attorney General a year later. He was placed in charge of the investigation into the controversial pardon of Marc Rich, ordered by Bill Clinton on his last day in office.  The pardon was instigated by then Deputy Attorney General, Eric Holder. Oddly enough, nothing untold came of these investigations. Imagine that! You can read more about this in my post “Into The Weeds 10” here. Marc Rich is an important link in understanding how the deep state functions. I will speak more about him in part 2 of this story.

Comey was soon moved to FBI Director under Obama, providing further evidence of his importance to the deep state, and the need for someone to cover up its activities. As FBI Director he had all sorts of responsibilities to bring to justice wrong doers in the government…..investigations were conducted over and over, with no one ever being indicted or convicted of anything that would send them to jail. Why? As I said before, to keep the deep state from being exposed. This has been Comey’s role for a long time.

george h w bush

George H. W. Bush.  Many Americans couldn’t tell you what George Bush did before he was our 41st president. Well, he was the head of the CIA, ambassador to the United Nations and ambassador to China, a congressman, and Vice President to Ronald Reagan. No man has been more connected to government or to the deep state. He was actually the man that popularized the term “New World Order”. He has been absolutely active in the use of and maintaining of the deep state, or what might be called the status quo. These people believe sincerely that this status quo must be maintained. Their goal to shape and create a global system has been front and center to US policies for a very long time. When Reagan won the republican nomination in 1979, his opponent was George Bush. Bush was the choice of the deep state and was next in line to become president……but like in 2016…the people spoke and elected Reagan. A deal was struck with Reagan and GHW Bush became the VP. Its one reason we should be leary of Mike Pence. A similar deal was struck with Trump to make Pence the VP. If you recall, Reagan was shot in an assassination attempt. Trump’s election was once again, the people speaking. Hillary Clinton was next in line to become president…the deep state choice.

Bush was the president that instigated, negotiated and crafted, NAFTA. Although it was signed into law by Bill Clinton, all the work to create it was done under George Bush sr. He worked very hard to advance globalist trade policy. He became very good friends with Bill Clinton, and they worked together using the Clinton Foundation Global Initiative as a platform. Billions of dollars moved through that initiative to conduct all sorts of global policy initiatives. I have outlined many of the Clinton Foundations activities in past posts. The entire series “Into the Weeds” starts here.

ciaThe intelligence Community.  I could spend hours and days writing about all the past and present deep state players in the intelligence community. Men like James Clapper, John Brennan, Mike Morrell, Mike Rogers, Mike Pompeo, and Michael Hayden, are just a few of the names we see in the news…the heads of security force agencies like the CIA, NSA, National Intelligence and Homeland Security. But there are actually 16 of these agencies in our government, many of which Americans never knew existed. One other thing to note is that the heads of many of these agencies are “lifers”. That is to say, they are long term employees, that work in the bureaucracy. Of the 16 heads, Trump has only appointed three to replace. These people, and the people that work for them, are the “SWAMP”. this is the core of the deep state, and the people working very, very hard to maintain a status quo, and to avoid being exposed.

IC Community

Each one of these heads has hundreds if not thousands of people working hard to keep America safe. But what does that really mean? They gather intelligence of all kinds: Phone calls, e-mails, financial transactions, purchases, sales, books, articles, tips, people movements, and even the movements of girlfriends, wives and children. They use electronic information, satellites, and lots of human intelligence to do this gathering. Most of it is useful to actually mount a defense against our enemies and terrorists around the globe, but some of it is used to “shape” events to maintain the status quo, prevent world war, to maintain commerce that helps the corporate structure of the world, and to continue to work toward a globally governed world….in other words….to keep the money flowing. The money I’m talking about is in the trillions, and some of it finds its way into the pockets of corrupt and dishonest people like the Clintons, Putin, Soros, Podesta, the DNC, the RNC, Lobbying firms,  lots and lots of consultants, and even criminal enterprises. All of this corruption done in the cause of keeping America safe and maintaining the status quo. It is important to understand how easy it is to have unchecked power, which can abused. As if it isn’t bad enough to work towards a goal counter to American’s own interests, this power can be used to destroy people, ruin industries, and if used politically, destroy opponents, and keep the “wrong people” out of office. Trump is one of those people and a real threat to the entire enterprise.

Seal_of_the_U_S__National_Security_Agency
It is certainly deeper and more audacious than just these 16 heads of agencies. Take one Intelligence Agency, the NSA: Here is an outline of the know divisions within the NSA:

  • The Technology and Systems Directorate
  • The Operations Directorate
  • The Information Systems Security Directorate
  • The Plans, Policy and Programs Directorate
  • The Support Services Directorate
  • Directorate only known from unit F6
  • Directorate only known from unit G112
  • Information Assurance Directorate (IAD)
  • Directorate only known from unit J2
  • Installation and Logistics
  • Human Resources
  • Security and Counterintelligence
  • Research Directorate
  • Signals Intelligence Directorate (SID), Customer Relations
  • Analysis and Production Center South Asia, S2B: China and Korea,
  • S2C: International Security
  • S2E: Middle East/Asia
  • S2F: International Crime
  • S2G: Counter-proliferation
  • S2H: Russia, S2I: Counter-terrorism
  • S2J: Weapons and Space
  • S2T: Current Threats
  • Data Acquisition
  • Cryptanalysis and Exploitation Services (CES)
  • Tailored Access Operations (TAO)
  • Global Access Operations (GAO)
  • Collections Strategies and Requirements Center
  • Special Source Operations (SSO)
  • Technical Directorate (TD)
  • Directorate for Education and Training
  • Directorate for Corporate Leadership
  • Foreign Affairs Directorate
  • Acquisitions and Procurement Directorate
  • Information Sharing Services (ISS)

    Each of these sub-divisions of the NSA, is also headed by its own under secretary or chief, all with many, many employees. But more important is all the folks that have access to intelligence. The collection of information is massive. The 16 heads above and eight members of congress, known as the gang of eight, are the only people who have access to what’s known as the “raw data”. That is, the actual conversations, e-mails, or other communications collected. That is until weeks before Obama left office. He signed an executive order giving access to this raw data to hundreds and hundreds of employees in all these subdivisions of the intelligence community. Previously, in order for raw data to be seen by anybody, a warrant had to be obtained.

Just one quick example. Let’s say there’s a very wealthy businessman in Nigeria. This man is providing valuable information to Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, on the movement of weapons by Hezbollah. This man tells Mossad he is having a problem with the terrorists of Boko Haram threatening his string of Nigerian hotels. Mossad informs the CIA. The CIA  asks John Ashcroft at Constellis to send over a contingency of “contractors” to Nigeria to assassinate a leader of Boko Haram, in or around Lagos, Nigeria. They are also to send a message that the hotels in question are off limits to Boko Haram. They can do this by killing a bunch, or by paying a lot. Either way they keep the hotels open and safe, and keep the information flowing. All, off the budget, and paid for with some slush fund from a foundation, corporate coffers, or seized assets. This is not a fictional example…..it actually happened!

 

Recently, we saw the evidence of this deep state using their power politically. This is an absolute abuse of this power. What has occurred in reports of surveillance of the president, unmasking of names, and leaking of classified information has one and only one purpose….to discredit and stop Trump as soon as possible. Its a hard road to ho for the deep state,  because no one can get indicted, convicted, or go to jail, without threatening the power structure itself. Although few, they do have limits to their power

But the big target is oil. Operations are going on everyday in foreign lands, conducted by our intelligence agencies in conjunction with private companies like Constellis, to keep the oil flowing and available, so prices remain stable. If a sovereign government like Iran decides to shut or slow the flow, the intelligence community will find a way to turn it back on all the way. If it requires an entire government to be toppled, or just a leader to be changed, they have the resources to do it.

The Parties. Yes, even our political parties are involved in the deep state. They groom and prepare the next person in line to enter the deep state apparatus. They know in advance, who will be the next choice for senator, president, Attorney General,  any ambassadorship, or any key position that needs to be filled. We call them the establishment. Its not all the politicians,  but it is a significant amount of people. You can look to senators and representatives that have been serving for decades. Most of them know all about this deep state, and work hand in hand to aid in their goals of achieving globalism, under the guise of keeping America safe.

Not long ago, in another blog post I made, I uncovered a powerful woman involved in the parties that connected a few dots. Her name is Julianna Glover. She was an important RNC operative, who owned her own lobbying firm. She was a significant fund raiser for the RNC, and had lots of private parties, hosting many donors to the party. After active involvement in the NeverTrump movement she sold her lobbying firm, left the RNC and went to work for Teneo…..the consulting firm to the Clinton Foundation……all….while being a “senior advisor” to John Ashcroft at The Ashcroft Group, a lobbying firm of Constellis. This from the Ashcroft Group website:

“strategic consulting, security and internal investigative services, and crisis counseling, for countries, corporations and industry and political associations.”

The hierarchies of the parties are a key part of the deep state. They must ensure that the right people get elected. They run the campaigns, choose the candidates, control the money, and even select the winners. They control the polls, the messages, and to a great extent, they control the media. Without the parties, Americans would choose the “wrong” people to maintain the status quo. This happened with Trump….he was the wrong guy.

In the second part of this blog post, I will detail a special person who was part of the deep state just a few years ago. His story will illustrate for you how the deep state shaped world events, by illegal means to “hurt our enemy” while “keeping America safe”. I hope you’ll stay tuned..
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Corrution? Government or Corporations?

Who’s to blame?

Disclaimer: this piece is my opinion, based on my business acumen and years of experience observing politics.

Below I have proven beyond any doubt that the Clinton Foundation and all its cohorts are a corrupt criminal enterprise. I have also provided information revealing firm links between the Foundation and the political establishment and the CIA. This latter point leaves room for debate, but the corruption can leave no doubt.

Over the years, I have had hundreds of debates whether corruption is the fault of government or the fault of corporate America. Those on the left believe the solution is more government power and regulation to counter the corporate corruption.  Laws like Dodd/Frank, ACA, and so many others, reveal this desire for more control and more power to regulate. I believe corporate corruption cannot exist without government assistance and a desire to aquiesce to their needs. With less power and less regulation and less money to spend, government could not do the favors they do for corporate America.

So what’s behind the connections between the Clinton Foundation, Dow, Boieng, Humana, Coke, and the others that have given millions to the Clintons for favors? Corporations are in the business to make money….as much money as they can make. It is not only their business, it is their fuduciary responsibilty to do so. If a corrupt government official will take money in return for consideration, a law, or a favor, they will spend the money. If the government official will not take the money, they will have to work much harder to compete, make better products, or provide services that sell. That’s the old fashion way, but the way all of us expect should be used. Using government to help you make money, is much, much easier. The point is, they will do whatever it takes to make money….they will play in any system that allows them to make money, and they are more than willing to spend millions if it will return billions.

Andrew Liveris, CEO Dow Chemical

Now I want to talk about an interview I saw recently with Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical. Liveris was one of my subjects in the posts below,  INTO THE WEEDS 8. There, I discussed Dow’s use of the Exp/Imp bank to fund a $20 billion dollar chemical plant in Saudi Arabia, and how the approval of a $5 million loan from the taxpayers was acheived through e-mails with the directors at the Exp/Imp Bank with promises of jobs at the foundations right arm, Teneo. Liveris was a staunch defender of Clinton for president and Dow contributed millions to the foundation. Dow also contribbuted to her campaign, and spoke publically against Trump. Building a plant on this scale in a foreign country, requires state department approval, and Hillary Clinton was SOS at the time. It would seem the whole episode came at a price. That’s how “pay for play” works. You can read the details here at my blog: https://kengeorge.org/2016/11/21/into-the-weeds-8/

Back to the interview. Liveris was just leaving a meeting he had at the White House with other business leaders, and Donald Trump, on February 20th. Reportedly, the business leaders talked about the reforms Trump was placing on regulation, his tax reform plan, the border tax, and the repatriozation of 2 trillion dollars of foreign profits. When Liveris was interviewed, he praised Trump and supported every single point in his plan. After hearing what he had to say, I thought he was a “Get on the Train” Trump supporter. He couldn’t have been more complimentary or supportive. It was absolutely striking! You see, my premise was that Corporations want to make money however they can. They will do what it takes. Because Clinton lost, they now have to change direction. They have to work with whomever is in power to make as much money as they can, and Trump is now in power…they’ll have to do it the old fashion way, which is going to be good for America.

Deal of the Century

Who really has ties to Russia?

air-tractor-at-802u-airtruck-logo.pngYesterday, I saw a story from one of my close FB friends about a weapons sale to Kenya, signed on January 19th…..Obama’s last day in office. The story is attached and outlines a request for a congressional investigation. On its face, it seems like an innocuous story about only 14 planes,  weaponized to fight Al-Shabab. It further talks about who got the contract and who didn’t. It states a company called L3 Technologies received this contract. The contract became a no bid contract and a company that has a lot of past experience with these planes claim they could be made for half the price. Regardless, the contract was issued to L3 Technologies for 418 million dollars. The funny thing is, not only is L3 double the price, they have never made a plane, let alone one like this. So I began to wonder just what was going on.

Well, I looked into L3 Technologies. I thought I had heard the name before in other research. I was right. L3 Technologies is formerly L3 Communications. One of their 11 directors is Peter Cohen. Mr. Cohen is also the founder and CEO of the Cowen Group. From Wilkepedia:

“Cowen Group Inc. is a diversified financial services firm that provides alternative investment management, investment banking, research, and sales and trading services through its two business segments: Ramius, LLC, a global alternative investment management business, and Cowen and Company, LLC, a broker-dealer business”

Now the Cowen Group has been around quite awhile. The Vice-Chairman of the Cowen Group is Stelios Papandopolus. Papandopolus is also on the board of Joule Unlimited along with Reuban Vardanyan, a close friend of Vladimir Putin. Why is this important? I recently wrote an expose on my blog about Joule. (included at the bottom) This is the company that Russia invested $35 million in to work against our fracking industry. Vardanyan is also the founder of Skolkovo…..the venture acquiring American technology from more than a dozen of our biggest tech firms…..ALL contributing to the Clinton Foundation to the tune of $20 million.

So what do think? Do I have to write more? OK…….A mature American company, with experience, is not considered for a military contract for weaponized planes in Kenya. Instead, a company, with no experience, gets a contract for twice the market price. Coincidently, directors of that company are also directors and officers of a Russian financed business, that John Podesta was a director and held 75,000 shares of stock, that he did not disclose.

Just how much more evidence does the justice department or the FBI need? Folks I’m telling you….I can’t look into a story that doesn’t have the Clintons somewhere in it. The corruption, cronyism, illegality, and down right treason is rampant. It truly is a swamp….and I hope someday, we will see an end to this corruption. One can only hope.

Is the CIA leaking classified information?

The connections just keep coming….when will the FBI begin an investigation?

Recently. I posted a research summary on FB. I wanted to post that story here as it is relevant to so many other things I have uncovered about the Clinton Foundation. All the players in this story…..seem to have connections to the Foundation and their surrogates.

katie-walsh
Katie Walsh-Deputy Chief of Staff to Donald Trump

Well, well, well….I guess all my investigative work is beginning to pay dividends. Today a FB friend (Bonnie Barta Dolezal) posted a story I had seen yesterday. Several news sources have reported that a leak has been found or at least suspected within the Trump administration. The suspect happens to be the deputy chief of staff, Katie Walsh. (story attached) but that’s not the whole story. For months I have been researching and posting here and on my blog about connections between the CIA and the Clinton Foundation. I started when I found a very strange connection between the RNC, TENEO Consulting, and Constellis. In case you haven’t read my blog and only read FB…..Julianna Glover was a big shot at the RNC and a lobbiest. She quit the RNC, just before the election and became a senior VP at Teneo Consulting. Teneo is very very close to the CF. The Co-founder of Teneo is Doug Band, the CEO of the CF. When Glover quit the RNC, she closed her lobbying firm but maintained a position as an advisor to the Ashcroft Group, run by John Ashcroft, a former Attorney General and still the CEO of Constellis, formerly Blackwater….a black ops, mercenary supply company. Constellis gets billions from the defense department to provide “contractors” all throughout the middle east, including some that were killed in Bengahzi.

 

OK, that’s the background and you can read more details at my blog. I have included a link at the bottom. But what does this all have to do with Katie Walsh? After a lot of searching I found a bio on Ms. Walsh. One of her first jobs after she graduated from Georgetown Univ. in 2007, was to work for the Ashcroft Group. She then became a prolific fundraiser for the RNC. So, a suspected leaker of classified information, used to work for John Ashcroft, the supplier of “contractors” to the CIA.  Just amazing. One more thing….did you know that Georgetown University has the oldest military type schools within it called The Edmund A Walsh School of Foreign Service. How’s that for a coincidence?….(a real one I hope) To be fair I could not determine if Ms. Walsh attended this school.

I’m sure all this is merely coincidental……but if it is, I now have the Guiness record for discovering coincidences. Wonder if Trump knows about this?

Into the Weeds 11 – Update

Pay for play reaches new lows.

russian-flagskolkovo

In my last post I mentioned a Russian start up program called SKOLKOVO innovation center. Well apparently this is a big deal, to date hosting over 900 companies, mostly start-up and mostly hi-tech new technology firms.    I found some of the American Companies that are aiding in advancing this technology. They include Microsoft, Google, Intel, Cisco, GE, IBM, Honeywell, Johnson & Johnson, Boeing, Dow, HCL America, Price Waterhouse, and others. From Europe, tech giants, Siemens and Nokia  From India, Tata. And from Russia, Rusnano and Lukoil. So far, American companies alone have invested 2 billion dollars in this tech venture in Russia. Oddly enough, the same Russian investment fund that was used to start SKOLKOVO was used to purchase Uranium One…..you may remember this is the deal brokered by Hillary Clinton and Frank Giustra to sell 20% of American uranium reserves to the Russians. Not only did Frank Giustra donate over 30 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation, I recently found out the same Russian company that now controls those American mines of Uranium, also penned a deal with Iran to sell them Uranium.

Now you have to admit this is special! Selling our technology, our uranium reserves, and giving them to Russia and Iran….two of our biggest enemies. I can see right inside the liberal skull…..  “if we help them they won’t attack us…..we just need to treat them better”. Well, how’d that work out with N. Korea when Bill Clinton gave them nuclear technology? Or how about giving China missile technology and all our factories? Is that working for America?

Its working for somebody. Every single one of those companies listed above, just coincidently donated big money to the Clinton Foundation or paid Bill Clinton big money for a speech. Since the Foundation only lists donations in 5 million dollar increments its hard to say the exact number….but its at least 10 million and as high as 25 million. I might also add that the CF has over 300,000 donors, and many have not even been disclosed. Many, many are individuals. I could spend days just studying donors, its irrelevant. Some of those individuals are certainly corporate officers or foundation managers that bring a lot less attention, when they donate as an individual.

Have we learned nothing from history? Are we so stupid that we keep funding our foreign competitors and provide them the technology to defeat us economically? Are we really that stupid, or is it just greed? Someday we will regret all this “cooperation”. But I guess there are plenty of folks that just don’t give a shit about America…making money is all that matters.

Into the Weeds 11

Why should we still pursue Hillary Clinton?

podesta-and-putin-640x480
John Podesta                                                                 Vladimir Putin

I almost can’t wait to tell this tale. It is way, way convoluted….so you’ll have to pay close attention. I continue my research on the Clinton Foundation. Why, you say? The election is over and Hillary is no more. Not necessarily……the money! Its always the money!

I came across a story on Breitbart that peeked my interest. Somehow I missed it when it first came out in October of 2016. The story revealed that John Podesta transferred 75,000 shares of common stock to a shell company in California, registered in Delaware, named Leonidio. Trouble is, it is a complete ghost of a holding company. Nobody can find who owns it. But let’s set that aside for now. What’s more important is the stock. The stock was in a company called Joule, unlimited. Joule is a tech company based in Bedford, MA. Its tech is bio-fuel and green energy. Podesta, in addition to receiving the 75,000 shares of stock, also sat on the board of one of the three branches of Joule. He did not disclose any of this, required by law, on his financial disclosures when he joined the Obama administration or the Clinton campaign. Most of this information, so far, is in the Breitbart articles. But it gets much, much better.

ruben_vardanyan_new
Reuben Vardanyan

Also on the board of Joule is a man named Reuben Vardanyan. He is a long time friend and advisor to Putin. You might call him a Russian Oligarch. He is native Armenian but has many financial interests in Russia, including banks, tech companies and oil interests. He is very, very wealthy. He founded an entity called SKOLKOVO, a Russian management school, dedicated to the tech industries. During the time that both Podesta and Vardanyan were on the board together of Joule,  they received a 35 million dollar investment from a Russian government fund. At the same time another shell company was being set up in Bermuda…..Klein Ltd. The whole scheme seems to have been hatched sometime in early 2011, shortly before Podesta was placed on the board of Joule. Klein, Ltd. has absolutely no information known, since it was set up in Bermuda and its against Bermuda law to provide any information, but the agents of Klein are known. They have strong connections to the Russian oil industry and Vardanyan and share the law firm that set up the shell company, Klein, and a foundation called Sea Change. Sea Change is involved in this scheme as well. They appear to be funded by only two sources: Klein Ltd. and Nat Simons and his wife, Marilyn.  Mr. Simons is a big left wing donor to Hillary Clinton and a rabid environmentalist. Sea Change is no small outfit. They take in about 30 million a year from just two sources. It is exclusively spent on climate change issues and alternate energy, with the one exception of millions a year given to the Center for American Progress….you remember them….that’s John Podesta’s organization. Somehow though, I think Nat Simons is a useful idiot. Maybe not, but the whole goal here seems to be to block, delay, and stop our development and use of fossil fuels. Now why would Russia invest in that? This seems to sharpen the image a little more, as to why climate change is so important to so many elites. By the way, all the people mentioned here are making millions and millions off all this advocacy.

But wait….there’s more. Above, while introducing the Russian connection, Vardanyan, I mentioned a school he created called SKOLKOVO. During Hillary’s “reset” with Russia, as secretary of state, at the request of SKOLKOVO, brought together 17 high tech American Companies to furnish technology to SKOLKOVO. All 17 companies were Clinton Foundation Donors or paid Bill big money for a speech. Hillary was warned by the FBI, that much of the technology could have duel use in military applications. Nothing was stopped. The technology was purchased, just as 20% of our uranium reserves were purchased.

For details and further reading I will furnish links at the bottom. But let’s sum up: Podesta, illegally, does not disclose his directorship of a Russian funded alternate fuel company……gets huge fee. Shares board with Reuben Vardanyan, close friend and confident of Vladimir Putin.  Russians fund Klein, Ltd which funds Sea Change to weaken American resolve for using fossil fuel, donates to Center for American Progress…..John Podesta. Hillary arranges technology transfers to the Russians by 17  U.S. companies, all contributing to the Clintons.

Now! Tell me….who actually has ties to the Russians?
