I was noticing that last night and today the major news networks were having continuing coverage of the Trump/Putin Summit in Helsinki. I watched intently waiting for a disaster. Not a disaster, like a bombing or a shooting, I was waiting for the moment when the media and most of Trump supporters would turn on him after the meeting.

My assumptions were correct – Trump would have a good meeting with Putin and this would send the media into utter hysteria.

However, in their histrionic reporting of the “happy repartee” between the leaders, I noticed something that CNN did that was troubling and revealing.

Most of the people they interviewed to get a statement on what they thought of the meeting appeared to be mostly ex-CIA and NSA operatives. It was also interesting to note that each former or present operatives made it a point to remind us that Putin was an ex-KGB agent.


I had an epiphany watching it all unfold — they are not hiding who didn’t like the outcome of the meeting.

It was the Intelligence apparatus of the country.

This is how desperate the Deep State intelligence cabal are – they don’t want any peace or any attempts at peace with Russia because it undermines their ability to continue the process of the “Cold War” footing they have tried to establish.

It is obvious – blatantly obvious.

Who wants world peace with Russia? Not the intelligence apparatus – hell no – they still want us all to be on a hair-trigger alert, with our nukes aimed at their cities and their nukes targeting ours. Any nuclear exchange between Russian and the United States would mean the end of the world, the extinction of human life.

The intelligence cabal wants us to be under the gun – this way they can justify their unwarranted spying and surveillance around the world.

CNN and MSNBC are certainly loving this moment and even Fox News is using former members of the CIA and NSA to remind us of the so-called conflict we have with Russia – they are reminding us of Crimea and Ukraine.

I can promise you that most Americans don’t care – they haven’t even bothered to investigate what happened leading up to the situation there and I am sure that most Americans don’t talk about this at the dinner table or over lattes at Starbucks.

The media wants you to believe that everyone talks about it – they don’t.

That’s why Russian collusion and the war propaganda coming out of the neocon and liberal think tanks has had little effect on public opinion — they have waited too long to get to the meat and have only conveniently thrown the public table scraps in the form of indictments that are effective only for a moment and do nothing to further the basic narrative of Trump treason.

Oh, but what happened today in Helsinki does; at least to the national security apparatus.

This is a feast for anyone who wants to dig up conspiracy theories about self-interested globalist criminals that wish to use their Deep State friends to secure a check mate towards convincing the world that the United States was a failed experiment.

This isn’t about Trump, his personality, or his other policies. It’s about whether a bunch of unelected globalists in national security are going to release the MiGs over Disneyland to prove that Russia can’t be trusted and that we have made a deal with the devil in fantasyland.

When I see stories unfold that confirm old conspiracy theories it is difficult to illustrate them without getting shouted down by people who have myopic views to back their self interests. I want to point out that if you are truly objective, and look at conspiracy history, you can see that many of the political puppets are merely cultural constructs that are there to mainly do “what they have to do” to coin a phrase from President Donald Trump.

The lust for power, power grabs, and dismay from deep shadow government operatives has now been watered down and homogenized as merely prime time entertainment and provides an “us against us” dialogue where the intelligence operations of the world are holding the precariat by a string.

The precariat is actually a class-in-the-making. It is the first mass class in history that has systematically been losing rights built up for citizens. Basically, the precariat is just a little lower than the middle class and are said to be alienated, anomic, anxious, and angry.

The precariat are starved and impoverished by design so they can easily be convinced that their hard work and devotion to the party will give them reward. This is taken right out of Orwell’s 1984.

“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.”

The Deep State has been with us for a long time. It has taken on many names and both left leaning and right leaning people have used it to describe the criminal inside jobs that have been carried out in order to thwart the policies of the United States.

For a generation, the people who saw something like an American Deep State; even if they rarely called it that – we were told we’re left-leaning conspiracy theorists, not the right.

However, to correct the left/right delineation; those who knew the truth did not play politics — they were united in demanding answers — it was the media that made it an issue of left wing conspiracy theorists vs. right wing patriots saying that anyone who questions the 9/11 attacks are with the terrorists.

The 9/11 attacks triggered the rapid growth of an opaque security and intelligence machine often unaccountable to the civilian legal system.

In the early 2000s, the critique focused on a “war machine” of military and intelligence officials, defense contractors and neoconservative ideologues who took orders directly from Vice President Dick Cheney.

Does anyone remember “911 was an inside job?” I do believe paleo-conservatives like Alex Jones pushed this agenda – I did too and I am not political at all – not when I know the truth and the truth is that we have a dual government that has allowed the criminal element to abuse its power to continue the bloodletting and power plays to keep people in subjugation.

In the Obama era, again the narrative would say that “right wing” conspiracy nuts are over the top focusing on the eerie precision of “targeted killings” by drones, and the fact that President Obama actually ordered the targeted murder of an American Citizen with a drone.

I decried that too, because I knew the truth — I knew that no matter who sits in that throne positioned in the Oval – the conspiracy is that there are those in the intelligence cabal that work that dualistic treachery that no one in power is immune form.

Does anyone remember the furor of Snowden? The guy who exposed the astonishing reach of the government’s surveillance. “There’s definitely a deep state,” Snowden told said in 2014. “Trust me, I’ve been there.”


The way the Deep State intelligence can keep control of world affairs is to create a bogeyman that they must protect us from – convincing us that there is no way to win the war, so we must keep it going in order to keep the structure of “cold war” culture intact.

Deep State manipulation creates crisis after crisis until they are able to stage a crisis are that is beyond the capacity of any one nation-state to cope with.

It is a technique that wants to show you that there is a bleak and foreboding darkness before the new dawn and thus “justifies” the need for the establishment of world government from different angles and for different reasons.

Today, it is such a hard and thankless task to remind people how their politics can make them look foolish –especially when they know that there is a darker dualistic government yet all is forgotten when their party reigns in Washington.

It is sad that now that “Deep State” moves are obvious – using the term at all anymore is has been rendered meaningless. It has become another term word for “scapegoat” in order to label one’s political adversaries.

Just saying that anything or anyone who opposes President Trump is a Deep State operative bastardizes the word.

It creates a convenient way of avoiding the defense of one’s positions.

However, throughout history there has been a demonstrable effort to undermine the United States from the inside and while the term deep state has made it a cartoon – calling it a criminal cabal makes it a bit more believable.

It is not a criminal cabal against one man – it is criminal cabal against an entire ideology and a cabal against the substantive processes of running a government that is united in cause and united in keeping the peace.

We do not have that now, and we won’t as long as operatives that believe in propping up the criminal cabal continue to conveniently convince the precariat that things need to be overhauled if not by policy then by force.

H.G. Wells who wrote books about the “Open Conspiracy” said that agents that wish to establish the socialist super state will do so gradually. They are certainly against the cultural structure of the United States. They are now operating out in the open and they are far from being monolithic.

The shadow government or Dark Command is simply the permanent, unelected government that continues to expand its power regardless of how Americans vote.

The shadow government has been working overtime to convince the world that there will be no lasting peace with any country as long as their attempts at world government are threatened.

It is obvious that after today’s meeting in Helsinki that any move toward peace with Russia threatens the billions of dollars that the war hawks would lose in the long run.

The war is meant to be continuous — how dare we meet with tyrants and say “no more” to their missile programs or their human rights violations? How dare we approach Russia and try to keep a somewhat positive footing with a country that has most of its nuclear warheads pointed at us?

None of these ideas are being expressed today – none of the media outlets are saying this and this is why no one will even stop and ask why the timing of everything seems a bit suspicious.

This is why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s indictment on Friday of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for allegedly interfering in the 2016 US presidential election should immediately raise some very serious questions.

After more than a year of investigations which have publicly revealed zero collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, why did Rosenstein drop this bombshell of an allegation on dumping day—a Friday before the historic Trump/Putin meeting in Helsinki?

Remember what I have said about “dumping day” or “take out the trash day” in a news room. It has always been a tactic to release unflattering or scandalous stories at the end of the business day to have lesser affect as people really don’t pay attention to news stories over the weekend.

Why didn’t the intelligence community release the indictments a month ago?

Well again I say that it is purely watered down and homogenized as merely prime time entertainment — to leave people on the edge of their seats wondering if president Trump will address the issue with Vladimir Putin.

Is it not suspicious that now no one is talking about reducing tensions with Russia but is all of a sudden, thanks to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, talking about increasing tensions?

I also find it interesting how the narrative is couched in the misleading practice of saying that indictments are evidence; however, they appear to be the smoking gun for those who want to see the drama end with grounds for impeachment.

Doesn’t this all seem to be part of a dual state operation?

History illustrated what happens when the people get blinded by political propaganda and overlook what is truly happening.

All you have to do is go back in history where the secret government aimed to take down a president that attempted to develop a somewhat peaceful relationship with leaders of countries we saw as enemies.

One has to consider the Kennedy administration and how it became a shining example of how one man who takes on an established cabal can fall hard and how the historical narrative of his legacy does not match the real story exposed by what can be called conspiracy theorists.

Although liberals hate to admit it, there are incredible parallels between Trump and Kennedy. First, both men were independently wealthy when they ran for office, which meant that they were not as reliant upon special interest donations to fund their campaigns. Second, both men are known to have been quite fond of the ladies, their marriages to beautiful women notwithstanding.

Trump was surreptitiously recorded by the media making lewd statements. JFK was recorded by J. Edgar Hoover in making many misogynist statements on multiple occasions, and was reported to have once remarked to a visiting dignitary: “If I don’t have a woman every three days or so I get a terrible headache.”

When JFK assumed office, he appointed his younger brother Robert as Attorney General, a move that was widely criticized as nepotism. Trump works closely with his daughter, Ivanka and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and is criticized in the same way. But more important than any of this trivia, which is on the level of the Kennedy-Lincoln coincidences, is both men’s opposition to the will of the Deep State, specifically in regards to Russia.

Although Kennedy was elected in 1960 as a Cold Warrior, he moved away from a hard line stance almost immediately after being elected. In 1961, he refused to provide U.S. military support to the CIA’s Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, something that many in the CIA never forgave him for.

In 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kennedy negotiated peace with Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev. This was against much of the advice coming from the Deep State, who estimated that, although the United States would lose 80% of its population in a thermonuclear war, the Russians would lose 100% of theirs. So, we would “win.” Kennedy rightfully recognized this as sheer insanity.

At the same time that JFK was talking to Khrushchev, CIA agent Bill Harvey was ordering raids on Cuba, in direct violation of Presidential directive, with the goal of provoking a missile launch by the Russians so as to start a war. When the crisis ended, Robert Kennedy had Harvey transferred out of the Western hemisphere so that he couldn’t cause any more such trouble. Harvey never forgave the Kennedy brothers, and retained a bitter hatred of them for the rest of his life.

In 1963, just months before his death, President Kennedy gave an historic speech at American University, outlining a vision for peaceful coexistence between the United States and Russia.


Kennedy negotiated a peace with the Russians during the missile crisis, and at the time of his death, he was making overtures to Fidel Castro and also beginning to withdraw U.S. troops from Vietnam.

History tells us that Kennedy was a champion of the people. He was taken down by his enemies, and the enemies he made were all connected to intelligence cabals that secretly wanted Kennedy gone.

He is remembered fondly by many Americans, but we tend to forget that in Dallas, Texas the day of his execution, there were flyers that were being passed around calling him a traitor and that his actions were seen as an act of treason.

Time is now rhyming except this time the right wing has their Kennedy facsimile in Donald Trump.

To his supporters, Trump is a champion of the people, fighting against corrupt elite, and against the enemies of the Republic both at home and abroad. To his detractors, Trump is a fraud, a billionaire who only feigns allegiance to the working class, and who like Caesar has dictatorial ambitions.

That such disparate views of the same man can co-exist within the populace is partly testament to the deep division within American society, and partly to the effect of a multiplicity of media, and a dualistic government – a darker dualistic cabal that has the power to bring down a president. This time they are now using the majority of the media as the voice of the resistance which is creating incivility that has lured us to the edge of full civil war.

It is oddly frustrating and chilling how different ideologies can stay locked inside their echo chambers, never having any real contact outside of them.

When CNN and other news organizations were asking former CIA and NSA operatives to assess the meeting in Helsinki, I was beside myself wondering how I could point all of this out objectively and critically.

The media will have you believe that Trump was played like a fiddle today, when in reality without a doubt and once again, the American people have been played.

It is obvious that the old battle lines flipped. Conservatives who once dismissed concerns about abuse of NSA surveillance now complain about intelligence leaks linking Trump associates to the Kremlin; liberals who not long ago were denouncing the CIA for its unaccountable power have discovered new affection for the shadow government operatives at Langley that might uncover impeachment-worthy dirt.

Hillary Clinton supporters might delight in the classified material gushing forth about the president’s men, but its release can be seen as criminal and we could see the credibility of President Obama questioned. It is not the first time that the American people have cheered on criminal activity to fit their myopic ideologies.

Yes, the president could be covering up misdeeds of his own, raising thorny and even uncomfortable questions.

However, no one considers what this means in the bigger picture.

Powerful bureaucrats with access to government secrets and trusted media friends certainly do try to influence presidents from the shadows. Globalists wish to demonstrate the American government and its officials are corrupt and that the United States needs to be brought to a level where take over will be effortless.
