The Deep State begins to reveal itself

Lots of people refer to “The Deep State”; few will try to identify who they are.

Does that mean there’s no such thing? First stipulating that we will not bring into the discussion today (please) the Masons, the Rothschilds, the British Royal Family, Yale’s Skull and Bones fraternity, or any pizza parlors located in Washington, D.C., let’s ask the question another way:

Do we believe there are holdover Obama and Clinton and even Bush RINO appointees in federal agencies and in the courts, today, working to resist and sabotage Donald Trump’s efforts to slash job-killing regulations and taxes, along with his efforts to enforce our duly enacted immigration laws — the very things a clear majority of the states elected him to do, five months ago?

If you said yes, you believe there’s a “deep state.”

(There’s a remedy, by the way. The Senate, until quite recently, used to work on the sensible principle and tradition that the President was privileged to nominate anyone to his cabinet whom he believed would further the agenda on which he ran for office, providing only that they proved to have the basic qualifications and not be obviously morons, lunatics, or brothers-in-law. No more. Now the simpering Schumer-Frankel Democrats “block” and “resist” every appointment. So: Revise the Civil Service law to allow the president to appoint the 1,000 top executive administrators in Washington without Senate approval, and bar all of those appointees from joining any trade union while they serve. If the Democrats object, make it 2,000.)

Second: Are there senior administrators and “retired” seniors administrators who keep their hands in, at CIA and NSA and DIA and DARPA and even at State and the Pentagon, who believe they know best how to juggle the complex interrelated elements of American foreign policy, that these upstart politicians arriving every fourth January from Arkansas or Chicago or Dogpatch, who think they’re going to “run things” from the Oval Office, should be tolerated only so long as those in the know can arrange to have the “proper” voices advising them – presenting them with only “acceptable” options?

If you said yes, you believe in the “deep state.” (And what do you think all the squabbling has been about, to get rid of Gen. Mike Flynn and Robin Townley and K.T. McFarland, to shut out Steve Bannon, to make sure the “Security Advisors” with the president’s ear represent only those who want to block any cooperation with Russia against the murderous Islamic radicals who again seek to expand the “caliphate” into the West?

Who ended up with the post, finally, but Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, described by Admiral Chester Ward, who served as Judge Advocate of the U.S. Navy and was himself a CFR member for 16 years before resigning in disgust: “In the entire CFR lexicon, there is no term of revulsion carrying a meaning so deep as America First. . . . The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations is promoting the disarmament of U.S. sovereignty and national independence, and submergence into an all-powerful one-world government.”)


How far would the “deep state” go? You get your choice. Either a self-described “Patsy” killed John F. Kennedy with three shots through the leafy trees in Dallas, faster than even an expert Marine marksman can work the bolt and hit a moving target with that kind of accuracy with a clunky World-War-Two Italian Carcano — one of his shots throwing Kennedy’s head back and causing his brains to explode out the BACK of his head, which can only be done with a shot with a hollow-point or soft-point bullet from the FRONT, as from the grassy knoll . . . and was then promptly killed before he could talk, by a hit man with mob connections who turned out to have a terminal illness and who IN TURN never talked . . .

. . . Or else CIA chief Allen Dulles, pissed off when Kennedy refused to cave in and send needed air support to rescue the Bay of Pigs invasion, rightly suspecting the naïve young president was attempting to make peace with Russia through back channels and was about to pull out of Vietnam, won a promise from Lyndon Johnson -– about to be dropped from the 1964 ticket and indicted for financial crimes -– that newly coined “President” Johnson would appoint HIM, Allen Dulles, whom Kennedy had FIRED, to the committee investigating the planned assassination, putting him in a position where he could certify the doctored autopsy results, intimidate witnesses, and largely dictate the final report . . .

. . . whereupon -– his cover-up plan now in place — he hired a team of foreign mercenaries armed with what was then arguably the world’s most accurate combat rifle, the Swedish 6.5, which uses bullets of the same caliber as the Italian Carcano . . .

What’s that? Maybe a “deep state” could do better at handling the complexities of a dangerous world than these cynical, vote-hungry politicians? The track record says otherwise. They completely missed the collapse of the Soviet Union. We spent trillions readying to defend Europe against what had been a bankrupt Potemkin Village, a hollow shell churning out fake production statistics for decades (as will be the predictable fate of ANY non-free-market economy) . . . right up to the day it collapsed in a heap of rust.

Over the past 50 years their endless “brushfire wars” and “low-intensity regime changes” and “Arab Springs” have replaced admittedly repressive strongmen in Iran, Iraq, Egypt and Libya with . . . what? Tolerant, modern secular regimes that respect personal liberties, freedom of religion and the free market? Not so much.

The Globalist, Open-Borders Deep State, precisely because they’re answerable to no one, have given us the resurgent barbaric Muslim invasion of the West, and will continue to screw up (unless this is what they WANT, which is possible.) They are not subject to common-sense correction, by the voters or anyone else. The only way to be rid of them is the Kennedy treatment . . . or a series of freak canoeing accidents on the Anacostia.

Except, of course, for some evidence that the Deep State SPLIT last year, with some of them deciding the eminently crooked Hillary Clinton was simply TOO “subject to the influence” of anyone with a few million dollars in hand, that this shrill harridan, clearly suffering from some kind of psycho-neurological illness (not pneumonia), under medical treatment which made her seem peppy as a puppy at debate time, but clearly Not Ready for Prime Time on the down leg of her dopamine cycle, was simply too crooked and erratic -– and probably subject to blackmail -– to tolerate.

Either way, it’s time we made some effort to find out who these guys are.


Generally, that question is answered with the equivalent of a Chinese menu. Pick one from column A and two from column B: the Military-Industrial Complex (thanks, that’s real specific); the International Banks (ditto), the Federal Reserve; the Import-Export Bank; the Tri-Lateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations (they belong on any list, as does . . .) George Soros, the Saudis; All those people who meet at Davos every year; the CIA, the NSA, the DIA; the Jewish Lobby (Politically Correct reporters know never to use that term, which sounds anti-Semitic. Instead they say “The Israel Lobby.” But Israel is of course a small country and not really that rich and powerful. What gives them influence in American politics are precisely their friends among wealthy Jewish Americans, who of course have every right to lobby their politicians to help Israel survive -– as long as it’s done in the open.) . . . I could go on.

I prefer to reply: I don’t know, either -– not completely and for sure. But if we can identify their SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT GOAL, we’ll be half-way to figuring out who they are.

And thanks to something that happened two weeks back, I suspect we can.

On April 6, supposedly in punishment for the dictator Assad’s use of poison sarin gas on his own people (though many including the Russians insist it was a “false flag” operation to gain sympathy and support for the Muslim insurgents — they’ve done such media-savvy stuff before) Donald Trump ordered 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles launched at a Syrian air base.

Russian reports reflected puzzlement and exasperation, as the Trump White House immediately followed up with a firm declaration that we’re “not at war in Syria.” (We’re “not at war” with Belgium, either. Shall we launch 59 cruise missiles at EU headquarters in Brussels just to see if they can take a joke?)

The Russians report about 20 missiles actually hit their targets; damage was minimal. The runways were not damaged, the base is back in full operation. They quite correctly add that “All American foreign policy decisions are made for domestic political reasons; that’s why they’re all insane.”

But the response among America’s mainstream, globalist press was astonishing.

Mind you, Trump had not stopped slashing job-killing “environmental” regulations -– which the left characterizes as aimed at “poisoning the children” . . . a common goal of doting grandfathers. He hadn’t changed his position on enforcing our duly enacted immigration laws, rounding up and deporting virtually all of the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens now in this country, where they push down wages, drive up housing costs, and bankrupt our hospital emergency rooms -– which the Left characterizes as “racist white supremacism reminiscent of Adolf Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan” . . .

. . . (even though most Middle Easterners and a lot of illegal Latin Americans, being neither black nor Asian, are actually white . . . as are the illegal Poles and Irish who most frequently get caught and deported when Immigration Enforcement raids factories in New England . . . while a lot of the people who’ll get better jobs and wages once the illegals are gone turn out to be, um . . . black Americans. Hey, good going, “Ku Klux Klan”!)

You might have expected the TV commentariat to respond, at best, “Interesting . . . we’ll see.”

But no! Within hours America’s TV viewers were being told “Last night, Donald Trump became the leader of the Free World!” “Finally, he’s acting Presidential, and moving toward the Center! For the first time we’re proud of him!”

His approval ratings reportedly leaped over 50 percent, for the first time . . . though I have no idea where the press get such numbers, overnight, when hardly anyone will take their phone calls, anymore.

Lindsey Graham, recently referred to by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as one of the leading ladies of the Senate, joined with NeverTrumper John McCain to “salute the skill and professionalism of the U.S. Armed forces who carried out tonight’s strike in Syria” (hitting a non-moving target with 20 of 59 shots and destroying a few old MIG-23s, at a cost of $100 million). “Unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action. For that, he deserves the support of the American people.”

For ordering the Navy to bomb — ineffectively — a country with which we’re not at war, but which is currently defending itself against an insurrection led by radical Islamic terrorists?

In other words, however ineffectively, Donald Trump just TOOK THE WRONG SIDE in Syria . . . aiding the very same barbarian radical Muslims who want to take us all back to the Eighth Century, executing homosexuals; beating up Christians, stabbing old French priests and gunning down cartoonists and burning churches; whipping and raping 14-year-old girls for not wearing their kerchiefs properly and enjoying gang-rape sprees whenever they’re allowed into a Christian country — the folks who Trump correctly insists are “the main enemy” . . . and our supposedly “tolerant, liberal, leftist” media and the Senate’s neocon hawks are joining hands to raise their flags and salute and cue up the John Philip Sousa music?

That would be just plain nuts. Unless . . .

All this makes sense only if THE GREATEST HORROR OF THE DEEP STATE is that Donald Trump might make a deal with Vladimir Putin to join forces to destroy expansionist radical Islam in Syria and elsewhere, with Trump accepting as his (minimal) price the Russian demand that Assad be left in power in Syria. (Hey, it’s not as though replacing repressive dictators has worked out that well for us in Iran, in Egypt, in Libya . . .)

This symbolic, militarily ineffective step is celebrated because it ALIENATES PUTIN, making that deal highly unlikely, and for no other reason.

Nothing else explains it.

The fact that that’s the globalist Deep State’s HIGHEST PRIORITY would also explain the desperation with which America’s Legacy Media continue to clutch with a death-grip the absurd narrative that Trump was somehow elected President of the United States with the aid of the Russians, who plan to use him as their agent.

We now know precisely where that hilariously bogus narrative originated, by the way. (Or, at least, when and how it was first promulgated to the media.)

Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’ new behind-the-scenes book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” highlights how Clinton’s Russian blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook “within twenty-four hours after she conceded,” Jerome Hudson reports at .

“That strategy had been set within 24 hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

“The Clinton camp settled on a two-pronged plan — pushing the press to cover how ‘Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign, overshadowed by the contents of stolen e-mails and Hillary’s own private-server imbroglio,’ while ‘hammering the media for focusing so intently on the investigation into her e-mail, which had created a cloud over her candidacy,’” the authors wrote.

Oh, please.


First, lecturing everyone in her imperious drone as usual, the stern schoolmarm Miss Hillary made a Truly Big Deal during the debates of how important it was that candidates accept the result of the polling (the way Nixon did in 1960, for example, even though it was clear Kennedy money had bought Illinois and West Virginia), calling Trump’s refusal to guarantee in advance that he wouldn’t challenge the outcome “horrifying.”

Further, Miss Hillary added during the Oct. 24 debate “That’s not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections and we’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. President Obama said the other day that when you’re whining before the game is even finished it just shows you’re not even up to doing the job. . . . And let’s be clear about what he’s saying and what he means. He’s denigrating — he’s talking down our democracy. I for one am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our major two parties would take that kind of position.”

Kind of like . . . embracing this “Russians Done It” nonsense? That’s how Miss Hillary shows us how to “accept the outcomes when we may not have liked them” rather than “talking down our democracy” like some bunch of sore losers who just can’t admit that “Open borders, more terrorists, and teaching six-year-olds about ‘fisting’ and cross-dressing” somehow just didn’t prevail against “jobs, justice, prosperity and enforcing the law”?

(The once but no longer “appalled” Miss Hillary also said she doubted Mr. Trump had read the Constitution, by the way. Good one, ma’am. Get out your copy, please, and show us the line where it says we’re a “democracy,” rather than a republic.)

But more importantly, the Mainstream, Legacy Media largely ignored the Podesta emails, just as they were instructed to do by the Hillary campaign, whose staffers routinely referred in the Podesta emails to these pee-stained lapdogs, barking in unison, as “our press.”

“Clinton News Network” anchor Chris Cuomo even warned his viewers on the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 12, that it would “be illegal” for them to even READ the emails Online -– while this same mainstream media giddily spent most of October ballyhooing the graying and suspiciously butch parade of female Hillary supporters coming forward in a clearly orchestrated and scripted procession to claim Donald Trump “bumped” or “groped” or “touched” them -– 11 to 21 years before!

What’s more -– violating all their own libel and fairness safeguards and procedures -– the Fake Media went full-court-press with this stuff without demanding any court depositions, sworn testimony under oath, corroborating witnesses, heck, without even asking these gals why they’d said nothing about these frightful assaults FOR MORE THAN A DECADE . . . chortling with glee as they obviously assumed that after this, Trump would be lucky to carry rural Idaho and the parts of Alabama where the roads still aren’t paved.

The Mainstream Press was AGAINST HILLARY? When only TWO daily American newspapers (out of hundreds) endorsed Trump for president? Welcome to the Radical Left’s Twilight Zone . . .


Place yourself in the position of any foreign nation, 10 months or a year ago. The decidedly lightweight eight years of Barack Obama, the “Great Apologizer,” are coming to an end. You’re anxious to have some influence with the next President of the United States. You might even want to have some small influence on the outcome of the race, so the winner would be positively inclined toward your needs and agenda. How do you proceed?

Government bureaucracies are, by their nature, not nimble. Not quick-footed.

At what point, last year, did it become possible for anyone to see that the American general-election polls were being distorted (“rigged”?) by “professional” pollsters oversampling Democrats based on their presumption that 2016 would see a repeat of the disproportionate Democrat turnout which elected America’s first black president in 2008 -– while on the ground in Florida and Ohio Donald Trump was drawing 40,000 people to rallies at remote airport hangars at the rate of two and three rallies per day, while the shrill, scripted, widely disliked schoolmarm Hillary Clinton was having trouble getting a hundred college girls to join her in some Pennsylvania high-school gym at a rate of two or three events per WEEK?

By late September, maybe? None too speedy, I called the race for Trump on this basis -– as well as on his clear victory in the second debate — the “Yeah, you’d be in jail” debate -– on Oct. 14. By then it would have been too late for any foreign nation to make new plans to “affect the outcome of the U.S. election.” They don’t move that fast.

Remember, the Podesta emails — hacked by means available to any precocious high-school kid — were already being released in great batches by Wikileaks months earlier, in August. At that point, everyone presumed a Clinton victory was a done deal. The Saudis had already spent tens of millions of dollars (that’s the official figure; we all know it was more) in “donations to the Clinton Foundation” to make sure Mrs. Clinton would be open to further “help and advice” from them once in office, while it had actually taken YEARS to position Huma Abedin — a radical Muslim Saudi in all but the accident of her American birth -– as Mrs. Clinton’s right-hand gal.

Given the kind of lede time it would take to land jobs for Russian (or French, or Saudi, or Chinese, or Israeli) computer experts/spies in all the thousands of warehouses where America’s voting machines are stored so they could be deviously re-programmed — or to take over all the trade unions that have been busily registering and busing to the “early voting” locations hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens in places like California and Nevada and Georgia to vote Democratic so as to continue blocking enforcement of America’s immigration laws -– even if we assume the Russians WANTED to “rig America’s election” against Hillary Clinton — they would have had to start YEARS ago.

And they would have done so on the presumption the guy they’d be helping would most likely be not Donald Trump, but . . . Jeb Bush.

Assuming the payoff -– installing one cynical American politician instead of another — would justify the risk of being found out, of course. For the record, there’s no evidence that anyone -– the Russians or ANYONE (other than our own Democratic Party, of course) — has tried ANY of this.

What in fact was the environment in which the Russian Foreign Affairs Commissariat met in early June of 2016? Fortunately, we have a partial transcript:


“. . . So, comrades, the next order of business. Come next winter, the Americans will have a new president. Good or bad for us?”

“Comrade Vladimirovich, for a time we naturally assumed we’d be facing the younger Bush brother, ‘Jeb.’ A pleasant fellow of no great depth, now serving as a provincial governor. He’d be controlled by the usual suspects at CIA and NSA, of course, in league with their great source of funding, the Saudis. But it appears the electorate has finally tired of the Bush family. All indications now point to a runaway victory by the perpetual candidate, Hillary Clinton.”

“The drunken wife?”

“Worse than that, I’m afraid. Vindictive, abusive, subject to violent mood swings.”

“She doesn’t look that way on TV.”

“Thoroughly coached and scripted. And medicated. The medical division at first suspected cocaina -– cocaine. But they now see signs of Leva-Dopa therapy in these ups and downs, they now detect probably well-developed Bolezn’ Lobachevsky, what in the West they call Parkinson’s Disease. The doping is timed to present the best face in the public appearances. As you’ll remember, she was in a coma when their ambassador was being killed and dragged through the streets in Benghazi, where she sent him with no protection, despite many requests. Couldn’t even answer the phone to OK the rescue mission. The State Department was essentially being run that night by her nalozhnitsa, the concubine, Huma Abedin.”

“The Saudi agent?”

“Close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, through her mother’s radical Islamic magazine, where she long remained on salary. She’ll be the new chief of staff, unless they put the Rastlitel’ there, Podesta.”

“He’s controllable.”

“Yes, yes. Little children.”

“Incredible. But isn’t the Clinton harridan closely tied to the Butterfly?”

“Yes. She’s basically offering the Americans a ‘third term of Barack Obama.’”

“Madness. More crippling of their economy in the name of ‘Global Warming’? Keeping their borders open to Muslim terrorists and Mexican drug gangs?”

“All of that. And don’t forget instructing schoolchildren about the wonders of sex change hormones and homosexuality, encouraging the little boys to wear dresses on Thursdays, when their native birthrate is already collapsing.”

The members of the committee silently shake their heads.

“It’s so fantastic. A once great nation. And the Americans will vote for this? You’re sure the propaganda branch isn’t making things up, again?”

“No, no, we have confirmation on the ground.”

“And she’ll continue backing the Muslim terrorists, just like the Butterfly?”

“She won’t admit Islamic terrorism exists, won’t even say the words. Meantime, of course, they shipped Khadafi’s arms through Turkey to the ISIS terrorists in Syria. That’s what her queer ambassador was doing in Benghazi, in the first place.”

“No one can beat her?”

“She controls the party apparatus, so the Socialist from Vermont will be frozen out. At that point, she and her staff are working to make sure she runs against the Republican they believe will cause her the least trouble, the loudmouth TV star, Donald Trump.”

“The real estate developer? We know him. Trump is no idiot. Very practical.”

“But politically inexperienced. Opposed even by the mainstream of his own party, by John McCain.”

“Serdityy karlik.”

“Yes, the Angry Dwarf, as you call him. And she has many traps set for this Trump, women willing to come forward and say he groped them, raped them, years ago. They’re being scripted and coached, even now.”

“An old ploy.”

“The American press will run nothing else for weeks.”

“Trump could overcome this with a big TV buy?”

“There’s no sign he’s planning one.”

The members of the committee nod in silent resignation. They all know what it means to try and win a campaign in America without a giant TV buy. Hopeless.

“Is there any good news for us here, comrade?”

“Well, of course, the Clintons have no principles.”

“You mean they can be bribed?”

“The Americans insist such things happen only in Third World countries. With them, it’s matter of faith that no American politician can be bribed.”

“Ha ha ha ha ha.”

(The other members of the committee): “Ha ha ha ha ha.”

(Wiping tears from his eyes) “Ahh. Thank you, Dmitri Ivanovich, you are always good for a laugh. So, let us not speak of ‘bribes.’ But we know the Clintons can be ‘influenced by financial means’?”

“Oh yes, you’ll remember the matter of Ian Telfer and Uranium One, of course. A few million in ‘donations’ to the so-called ‘Clinton Foundation,’ a half-million-dollar ‘speaker’s fee’ for the husband while he was here for a few days enjoying the services of some of our more skilled shlyukhas, and Mrs. Clinton’s State Department happily agreed to our taking over the business. We ended up with, what? . . .”

“Twenty percent.”

“. . . Twenty percent of America’s uranium reserves.”

“Incredible. That the Americans would elect a whore, alright. But such a cheap whore. A few million dollars.”

“It all adds up.”

“So: Our best course of action, now?”

“Continue to bribe — that is to say, to ‘influence by financial means’ — the greedy cow, through her svodnik, her Saudi handler, Abedin.”

“Good. Make it so. And to ‘cover our bases,’ as our colorful American friends like to say, also some smaller amount of money and help to Mr. Trump?”

“In the first place, he’s held to have no chance. Secondly, it wouldn’t be necessary; he’s correctly named the expansionist Islamic terrorists as the West’s main enemy, spreading their seed through gang rape all over Europe already, so unlike the Butterfly he’d likely make a deal to work with us to defeat them in Syria — which only makes sense. And lastly, he’s a billionaire, funding his own campaign. He’s not soliciting foreign donations, which are, at any rate, illegal in America.”

“Yes, of course, illegal. Ha ha ha ha ha.”

“Ha ha ha ha ha.”

“Ha ha ha ha ha. OK, it’s decided, then. We keep bribing the greedy cow. Cheap at the price. What’s next? Syria? . . .”


The Deep State, and their leg-humpers in the Washington-New York lapdog media — who know they won’t get invited to the right parties, they won’t get the plum assignments and the vitally important strategic “leaks,” their careers won’t go anywhere, they won’t get the requisite amount of “TV face time,” they’ll be permanently shunted to the sidelines and end up doing the local weather reports in a frog costume in Grand Forks or Baton Rouge if they don’t toe the Politically Correct line on Open Borders, Global Warming, Sex-Change Surgery, and the wonders of genital mutilation and Sharia Law — rushed to celebrate the cruise missile attack not because it did much harm to Assad (it didn’t) but because it means they and the Gray Masters for whom they labor have finally succeeded in maneuvering Trump into a position where he’s tugging Putin’s beard, backing away from any chance at a partnership with Putin against the Islamic State.


Once we know that, we’ll be half way along — or more — to figuring out precisely who they are. Which means we’ll be two-thirds of the way toward what Americans need to do to the active members of the Deep State if we’re ever going to regain our freedom and our sovereignty.

  1. John Taylor Says:

    You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. …

    Picture with me, if you will, a country in which the 2016 pResidential election had gone as ‘planned’. A country ‘run’ by Hillary Clinton. A country where the 1992 inhumane government murders near Naples Idaho are expanded to include not just mothers of infants. A country where the 1993 inhumane government murders at Waco are reenacted on a grander scale. A country where the inhumane government murders —
    excuse me, “mysterious deaths” – surrounding the Clintons, such as the 1993 death of Vince Foster, multiply and expand throughout the nation. A country in which the already clearly corrupt Chelsea Clinton has become the heir apparent to the Washington throne.

    … Next stop, the Hillary Zone!

  2. Michael Rippie Says:

    People need to know all this is fact! Too many people swallow the government propaganda with out even thinking for themselves.
    America has had its finger in every election all over the world, ever killing people who were elected by the population. All the facts are out here if people would just look.

    Vin, you ask for help: “[I]f we can identify their SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT GOAL, we’ll be half-way to figuring out who they are.” your emphasis.

    I suggest we look at Greece and see if we can observe a pattern. John Perkins in CONFESSIONS OF ECONOMIC HIT MAN documents a pattern of IMF and WB managing oppressive national debt imposed by Wall Street upon countries with the goal of bankrupting the nation. The CIA and US military are used to force compliance with Wall Street mandates. The bombing of Panama is an example of Wall Street displeasure. As seen in Greece, sovereignty has been usurped by financial centers. The sale of national assets to further the rape of the targeted nation follows. The practice is confirmed by Michel Chossudovsky in GLOBALIZATION OF POVERTY.

    Greg Palast and Douglas Valentine have written of the same parties developing the same pattern in the United States. Ref.      NEW WORLD ORDER DEAD AHEAD   

    This writer has alleged (in detail) the above nefarious acts are funded by Wall Street using the Federal Reserve Bank of New York City to embezzle funds from the US government. Ref.   

    [Trump has compromised, to some degree, so the Wall Street shadow government would discontinue the relentless MSM drive for impeachment. Putin has thwarted Wall Street in Syria and Ukraine, imo.]
