Richard Nixon, in his effort to silence black people and antiwar activists, brought the War on Drugs into full force in 1973. He then signed Reorganization Plan No. 2, which established the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Over the course of five decades, this senseless war has waged on. At a cost of over $1 trillion — ruining and ending countless lives in the process — America’s drug war has created a drug problem that is worse now than ever before.
This is no coincidence.
For years, those of us who’ve been paying attention have seen who profits from this inhumane war — the police state and cartels.
This horrendously corrupt and violent drug war has gotten so bad, that it is getting pushed into the mainstream. In an extremely rare move, A&E Networks, a subsidiary of ABC and the Walt Disney Company, will be addressing the government’s role in the drug war in a four-part documentary series on the History Channel, titled, “America’s War on Drugs.”
In this documentary, History channel promises to delve into items that, up until recently, were considered ‘conspiracy theory.’ CIA drug dealing is one of those such items. According to the description on A&E:
“America’s War of Drugs” is an immersive trip through the last five decades, uncovering how the CIA, obsessed with keeping America safe in the fight against communism, allied itself with the mafia and foreign drug traffickers. In exchange for support against foreign enemies, the groups were allowed to grow their drug trade in the United States.
Promising to be one of the most explosive television series in recent history, the show intends to expose the CIA’s connection to the crack epidemic.
Night one of “America’s War on Drugs” divulges covert Cold War operations that empowered a generation of drug traffickers and reveals the peculiar details of secret CIA LSD experiments which helped fuel the counter-culture movement, leading to President Nixon’s crackdown and declaration of a war on drugs. The documentary series then delves into the rise of the cocaine cowboys, a secret island “cocaine base,” the CIA’s connection to the crack epidemic, the history of the cartels and their murderous tactics, the era of “Just Say No,” the negative effect of NAFTA, and the unlikely career of an almost famous Midwest meth queen.
If the CIA trafficking cocaine into the United States sounds like some tin foil conspiracy theory, think again. Their role in the drug trade was exposed in 1996 in a critical investigative series “Dark Alliance” by Gary Webb for the San Jose Mercury News. The investigation, headed up by Webb revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan contras and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities.
The investigation provoked massive protests and congressional hearings, as well as overt backlash from the mainstream media to discredit Webb’s reporting. However, decades later, officials would come forward to back Webb’s original investigation up.
Then-senator John Kerry even released a detailed report claiming that not only was there “considerable evidence” linking the Contra effort to trafficking of drugs and weapons — but that the U.S. government knew about it.
Also, as the Free Thought Project previously reported, in a new book, Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, explains how his father “worked for the CIA.”
In the book, “Pablo Escobar In Fraganti,” Escobar, who lives under the pseudonym, Juan Sebastián Marroquín, explains his “father worked for the CIA selling cocaine to finance the fight against Communism in Central America.”
Going even further down the rabbit hole, the History Channel will address how US involvement in Afghanistan turned the country into a virtual heroin factory and how the drug war empowers cartels.
The final chapter of the series examines how the attacks on September 11thintertwined the War on Drugs and the War on Terror, transforming Afghanistan into a narco-state teeming with corruption. It also explores how American intervention in Mexico helped give rise to El Chapo and the Super Cartels, bringing unprecedented levels of violence and sending even more drugs across America’s borders.
The reason why the drug war actually creates a drug and violence problem is simple. And those who profit most from the drug war — drug war enforcers and cartels — all know it. When the government makes certain substances illegal, it does not remove the demand. Instead, the state creates crime by pushing the sale and control of these substances into the illegal black markets. All the while, demand remains constant.
We can look at the prohibition of alcohol and the subsequent mafia crime wave that ensued as a result as an example. The year 1930, at the peak of prohibition, happened to be the deadliest year for police in American history. 300 police officers were killed, and innumerable poor people slaughtered as the state cracked down on drinkers.
Outlawing substances does not work.
Criminal gangs form to protect sales territory and supply lines. They then monopolize the control of the constant demand. Their entire operation is dependent upon police arresting people for drugs because this grants them a monopoly on their sale.
However, the illegality of drug possession and use is what keeps the low-level users and dealers in and out of the court systems, and most of these people are poor black men. As Dr. Ron Paul has pointed out, black people are more likely to receive a harsher punishment for the same drug crime as a white person.
This revolving door of creating and processing criminals fosters the phenomenon known as Recidivism. Recidivism is a fundamental concept of criminal justice that shows the tendency of those who are processed into the system and the likelihood of future criminal behavior.
The War on Drugs takes good people and turns them into criminals every single minute of every single day. The system is setup in such a way that it fans the flames of violent crime by essentially building a factory that turns out violent criminals.
The system knows this too — as the very existence of the police state is dependent upon the drug war. When drugs are legal, there are far fewer doors to kick in, fines to collect, profit prisons to fill, and money to steal.
When drugs are legalized, gang violence drops too — drastically. Not only does it have a huge effect on the localized gangs in America, but the legalization of drugs is crippling to the violent foreign drug cartels too.
This is why the Free Thought Project and other open-minded groups all advocate bringing this bloody and criminally ineffective drug war to a sudden and grinding halt.
Hopefully, the History Channel’s new documentary will push others to question drug laws. Hopefully, the documentary wakes people up the idea that legality does not equal morality and that government force, via kidnapping, caging, and killing, is no way to solve an addiction problem. Hopefully.
The Wikileaks has published a user guide for CIA’s “Weeping Angel” tool which had been based on a MI5/BTSS tool.
The new ‘Vault-7’ batch sheds light on MI5/CIA’s classified smart TV malware bug manual.
The “Weeping Angel” tool is an implant designed for Samsung F Series Smart TVs. It is “designed to record audio from the built-in microphone and egress or store the data,” the Wikileaks’ press release said.
“The classification marks of the User Guide document hint that… was originally written by the MI5/BTSS and later shared with the CIA. Both agencies collaborated on the further development of the malware and coordinated their work in Joint Development Workshops,” the whistleblowing site said.
On March 7, WikiLeaks released the first part of what it called an unprecedentedly large archive of CIA-related classified documents. According to the website, a large archive comprising various viruses, malware, software vulnerability hacks and relevant documentation, was uncovered by US government hackers, which is how WikiLeaks gained access to some of the data from the trove.The “Year Zero” batch was followed by the “Dark Matter” released on Match 23. The third batch called “Marble” was released on March 31. The “Grasshopper” batch revealing a platform for building malware was released on April 4. The HIVE batch revealing top secret CIA virus control system was released on April 14.
The first batch of Wikileaks’ CIA revelations shed light on a technology allowing to turn on a Samsung smart TV set’s audio recording capabilities remotely which had been designed by the CIA and the UK Security Service MI5.
“The remnants of American democracy are under daily assault from voter suppression and purges, billionaire-owned judges and politicians, billionaire-friendly tax and trade policies, and a billionaire-owned media. Income and wealth inequality are at levels not seen since 1929, but you won’t hear a peep about it on the network news.”
America has a “lying press” problem. And it’s not the “enemy of the people” situation our president has asserted.
Consider the biggest threats America faces right now.
Abrupt climate change is happening around the world as a result of our use of fossil fuels. France 24 reported on February 18 that half the population of Somalia is facing famine because of an unprecedented, climate change-driven drought that’s extending across north and central Africa, while the United States is whipsawed between unprecedented weather extremes because there’s 6 percent more moisture in the air than in 1950, feeding massive storms. The list goes on from the Arctic, which was up to 50 degrees warmer than it should be this winter, to the Antarctic, where sea ice is also reaching lows not seen since humans came out of the trees.
Have you seen the story on American network news? Probably not.
While Canada has declared the internet to be a “fundamental right for all” and is reinforcing its version of net neutrality while extending high-speed, low-cost (and often free) broadband internet service to all Canadians, the new head of the FCC, Ajit Pai, has said right out loud that he wants to end net neutrality in the U.S., increasing costs for Americans, potentially limiting access to websites that giant ISP corporations don’t like (like perhaps this one) or who don’t pay ISP’s extra for “fast access.”
Have you seen the story on American network news? Probably not.
Fracking is causing an explosion of earthquakes in Oklahoma, Ohio and Pennsylvania (among others) and devastating water supplies around the nation, while fossil fuel giants hand so much money off to Republican politicians that they’re willing to deny that human-caused climate change is even a thing or that fracking is dangerous. The fossil fuel industry has even now largely seized control of the EPA.
Have you seen the story on American network news? Probably not.
An explosion of consolidation in corporate America started in 1982 when Reagan effectively stopped enforcing the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. The last real enforcement was by Nixon against AT&T, which resolved under Carter with the company breaking up into 7 “Baby Bells” to enhance competition, but those companies are now all re-consolidated.
Reagan’s deregulation lead to the mergers and acquisitions mania from the 1980s to today, highlighted in the movie Wall Street with Michael Douglas famously echoing Michael Milken’s sentiment that “Greed is good.” The latest industries to recently hyper-consolidate are Big Pharma and Big Health Insurance. But media consolidation is the most pernicious when it comes to a “lying press.”
Have you seen the story on American network news? Probably not.
An American landscape that used to be filled with local, independently owned businesses has become so homogenized by the handful of companies that control our retail, restaurant, and travel sectors that you could parachute from space to any random part of the country and have no idea where you are because everything is the same. It makes billions for the billionaires, but locks out anything resembling the local competition that used to be a hallmark of American business.
Have you seen the story on American network news? Probably not.
Our so-called “free trade” deals are giveaways to huge multinationals, who now can even force national laws to be struck down, and serve mostly to cement the profits of billionaires and transnationals (this goes waaaaay beyond the “offshoring jobs” Trump talking point). Because these trade deals put multinational corporate “courts” above the laws of our own nation, they should rightly be called treaties, which require two-thirds of the Senate to ratify; instead, since Nixon, they’ve been called “trade agreements” and repeatedly passed by tiny majorities with Republican support over Democratic opposition.
While pundits rant about crime in Chicago, nobody mentions the estimated 100,000 people who die every year from workplace-related diseases, the 65,000 who die from mostly fossil fuel-related air pollution, or the 400,000 Americans killed every year by the tobacco industry. At the same time we hyperventilate about street crime and drugs, corporate criminals and banksters destroy working class families with much higher frequency than burglars or robbers but are almost never, ever jailed.
Have you heard a single in-depth word about any of these issues on the network news? Odds are your answer is “No,” and when you have, it’s the rare exception that proves the rule, and usually presented in a very narrow frame that doesn’t include corporate malfeasance.
Our radio and TV press is not keeping us informed about things that actually matter to our daily lives and economy, and instead focusing on things that drive up ratings (including, but not limited to, the Donald Trump Reality Show POTUS Version, which they cynically pounded us with throughout 2015 and 2016 because it was, as CBS’s Les Mooves famously said, not good for America but great for CBS).
In a word: Profits. Profits over truth. Profits over “news.” Profits over the planet. Profits over human survival.
People call into my radio program and ask, “Why don’t I hear about net neutrality on the most liberal of the TV networks?” The easy answer: their parent company is so opposed to net neutrality that they’ve participated in lawsuits to end it. Why? To increase the profits of their Internet ISP arm.
People ask, “Why doesn’t the main “cable news” network cover all the opposition to the giant mergers that are happening?” The easy answer: their parent company is trying to merge with giant telco/ISP company, and is itself the product of multiple mergers.
People ask, “Why doesn’t the conservative TV network ever talk about wealth inequality or billionaire control of the GOP?” The easy answer: a billionaire largely owns their parent company.
People ask, “Why doesn’t public radio do investigative reporting on corporate malfeasance anymore, and instead regularly has on spokespeople for corporate-funded right-wing think tanks?” The easy answer: they’re now funded in substantial part by corporate money.
In 1980, thousands of individuals and local companies owned the majority of radio stations, TV stations and newspapers across America. The result was the outgrowth of competition: broad diversity of programming and opinion on our nation’s airwaves, and healthy debates about a wide variety of issues.
Because of a series of massive deregulations, from Reagan blowing up the Fairness Doctrine to Clinton signing the Telecommunications Act, all that media is now owned by a handful of mega-corporations and a few billionaires.
Healthy and resilient ecosystems require diversity. The same is true of a healthy media system.
Between the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890 and the Communications Act of 1934, our media, until Reagan defanged both in the 1980s, was broad and diverse in its ownership and programming. This is no longer the case, and the American people instinctively know it (even if they lack the details of why).
Thus, when Donald Trump echoes the tyrants of history by calling out the Lügenpresse (“lying press” in German—the term Hitler used to ultimately shut down the independent German press in 1933) as “fake news,” people know at a gut level that there’s an element of truth to it.
And if Trump’s new FCC head has his way, the internet (at least in America) will soon be no better.
The billionaire takeover of our media is nearly complete, leading to a deafening silence about the activities of billionaires gaming our economic, political/judicial, and media ecosystems. We even have a billionaire president and cabinet, brought to us by over $2 billion of free corporate media in the primaries and general election.
The remnants of American democracy are under daily assault from voter suppression and purges, billionaire-owned judges and politicians, billionaire-friendly tax and trade policies, and a billionaire-owned media. Income and wealth inequality are at levels not seen since 1929, but you won’t hear a peep about it on the network news.
Billionaire assaults are both consolidating and taking down media companies and journalists (Rachel Maddow’s detailed reporting on this is the shining exception to the rest of the press). And billionaires who game the stock market will profit as much through a crash as they do through bubbles like the one we’re in now. Only the “little people” with their 401Ks or pensions get really badly hurt. But don’t expect to learn that from the corporate media.
“Small government” is merely code for “less regulation of billionaires and the companies they control”; as government power wanes, billionaire power increases. Thus, the post-1981 multi-trillion-dollar transfer of wealth from working families to the top 1% continues apace with nary a notice on the evening TV.
If “small-d” democratic political movements want long-term success, they must put at the top of their to-do list a return to a vigorous Sherman Act (and its heirs), and a return to local control/ownership of media with a new “news programming in the public interest” mandate (eliminated by Reagan in 1987) for the media.
Anything less is merely whistling past the graveyard of democracy.

Permit me to set the scene. This has all been set up by the Deep State, over a period of many years, in fact.
To begin with, Donald Trump is not an outsider, he’s an insider, and has been for a long time. He’s a New York City multi-billionaire with numerous business and personal contacts in industry, high finance and government at all levels. That has been true for decades, even before he ran for political office.
The Trump brand was conspicuously pre-positioned before the public’s eyes for decades. It’s called product placement and in this case the product being sold is Trump. It’s a familiar advertising technique. Very few people have their own network TV program. I don’t have a network TV program and neither do you, because we’re not in on the game, yet Trump had his own program for years on end. He was the boss. He ruled the roost. You did things the Trump way or you were out of there; he summarily fired people who didn’t measure up to his standards.
As I said, it was a TV program, i.e., it was used to program the public mass mind, to familiarize the viewing public with the Trump brand, to present him as the man in charge. These things don’t happen by accident. Television is a brain washing technology par excellence and has been used for mass advertising, social change and political propaganda since its inception. TV was used to program Donald Trump’s rise to national power and influence. It doesn’t matter in the slightest whether you like him or not, whether you support him or not, whether you approve of his policies and policy proposals or not, or whether you voted for him or not, that is what has happened. He is a product of the system, placed before the public by the system.
The system prepares a whole roster of these people, feeds them into the pipeline and then trots them out for so-called public “service” as it deems necessary.
The Trump supporters think that they “elected” Donald Trump to the presidency. But nothing could be further from the truth. It’s all rigged, you see.
Here’s how it works. Using the mass advertising techniques of Edward Bernays, based on principles rooted in Freudian depth psychology and Pavlovian operant-conditioning methods of behavioral modification and control, the large segment of the politically disaffected public that were not amenable to the mainstream political narrative in the USSA were provided an “option” that they enthusiastically accepted: Donald Trump.
In reality, they didn’t choose him; rather he was presented to them as the alternative to the unacceptable (to them) Hillary Clinton. (Stay with me, this rabbit hole goes very deep, and in a direction you probably do not anticipate.)
Remember, methods of mass advertising and propaganda as perfected by Edward Bernays during the 20th century, have been employed on a wide scale, over a period of decades, in order to pre-position the product — Donald Trump — firmly in the mass mind. Successful product placement was half the battle. The other half was to persuade millions of people that their decision to consume that product was their personal decision, when nothing could be further from the truth.
Remember that mass advertising and propaganda experts like Edward Bernays, and the legions of similarly minded experts who have followed in his footsteps, have refined to a sophisticated art the technology of social and political influence and control, the better to induce the human herd, yes, herd! — in its teeming millions — to perform in a desired, deviously pre-planned way; notwithstanding that each individual member of the herd is carefully led to imagine that he or she is acting in a self-determined, self-actualizing way, arrived at after careful personal consideration of all of the relevant factors at his or her disposal, never imagining, with rare exceptions, that said “relevant factors” have been fiendishly pre-selected and pre-fed to the human herd, the better to artificially construct, and lead the herd through, a carefully designed decision tree calculated to produce a desired and approved of outcome, in this case: Donald Trump.
Those who work with cattle understand this dynamic very well. If you have a herd of cows and you desire to pen them into a certain paddock and lock the gate behind them, all you have to do is open the gate to the desired paddock, and drive them or lead them down the fence line. Owing to their herd psychology, they rush down the fence line and as soon as they encounter the opening to the paddock, they all instinctively break for the opening — which in reality is not an “opening” at all, but a pen — and once they are all inside the cowboys have but to lock the gate behind them, and their goose is cooked. They are penned, ready to be shipped to slaughter — notwithstanding that in their confused herd mind, they thought they were making a bold break for freedom!
The ranch manager and the cowboys were two steps ahead of them, you see, cleverly strategizing the secondary and tertiary consequences of their blind, false belief.
The herding of humans is not much different.
Enter the Pied Piper
The centuries-old tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin is directly applicable here. It was the Middle Ages in the German town of Hamelin, when the Pied Piper came to town. His magical flute music was so beguiling that all the children of the town fell under the spell of his enthralling tunes and willy-nilly fell into line behind him. They followed him out of town en masse and went away to their doom, never to be seen again.
I am not suggesting to you that Donald Trump is a latter day Pied Piper — on the contrary, it is the Deep State itself who has put forward Donald Trump as the Pied Piper!
Consider the front cover of the Rothschild-linked Economist magazine from two years ago. Click the hyper-link, take a look:
There is a great deal of symbolism in this cover illustration, far more than can be discussed in this short commentary, so we will restrict ourselves to simply notice the Pied Piper character on the left-hand side, playing his flute, directly to the knuckles of Vladimir Putin’s right hand.
The Economist is a prominent publication of the Rothschild-linked international banking consortium. The content of its cover therefore is not merely random noise, but has significance within the context of that powerful, global faction’s Machiavellian political machinations.
The cover is thus signalling the appearance of a Pied Piper on the world political scene, whose “tune” will knuckle under to, or be made to appear to knuckle under to Valdimir Putin.
Enter Donald Trump onto the world stage, his election and young presidency said to be under the alleged influence and sway of none other than the Russians and Vladimir Putin himself.
Who would have thought? And by the way, before leaving this Economist cover discussion, notice on the other side of the cover that there is a nuclear or atomic mushroom cloud billowing up into the sky beneath a stylized representation of the globe, with two faces representing East and West, with a very angry looking East.
Many themes are presented on this cover from two years ago, the theme of the Pied Piper and of a nuclear or atomic blast among them.
Fast forward a few months to April 2015 and the theme of the Pied Piper arises again in the context of the Deep State’s Machiavellian political machinations.
There Are No Accidents in Politics
Have you read the DNC/Clinton/Podesta e-mails that were released by Wikileaks? I have and there are some real nuggets in there.
I want to provide a highly salient and germane example that strikes to the very heart of the theme of this commentary, but before I do, please bear in mind that Joseph Kennedy, the father of President John Kennedy and Senator Robert Kennedy, both of whom were publicly assassinated by the Deep State, remarked to a reporter in 1960 that: “There are no accidents in politics.”
Now then, on 7 April 2015 an e-mail circulated at the highest level of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign that concerned an upcoming Strategy Call. One of the items to be discussed on the “Strategy Call” was the “DNC Plan” detailed in an attached memo.
The e-mail is found here:
Click on the hyper-link to the e-mail and then click on the “Attachments” tab at the top of the e-mail. Open the .pdf file that appears, entitled “Strategy on GOP”.
The memo outlines the “Goals and Strategy” of the planned Clinton Campaign, against the projected field of GOP candidates.
Under the subsection entitled “Operationalizing the Strategy” appears the following choice extract:
Pied Piper Candidates
… use the field as a whole to inflict damage on itself similar to what happened to Mitt Romney in 2012. The variety of candidates is a positive here, and many of the lesser known can serve as a cudgel to move the more established candidates further to the right.
In this scenario, we don’t want to marginalize the more extreme candidates, but make them more “Pied Piper” candidates who actually represent the mainstream of the Republican Party. Pied Piper candidates include but aren’t limited to
• Ted Cruz
• Donald Trump
• Ben Carson
We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to them seriously.
Well, Well, Well …
The plot does thicken. No less than Donald Trump himself was on a very short list of preferred Pied Piper candidates that the Hillary Clinton campaign brain trust explicitly plotted to advance as “leaders of the pack”. Ted Cruz and Ben Carson self-destructed, leaving Donald Trump as the Pied Piper, leading the pack — as intended.
Remember what Joseph Kennedy said in 1960: “There are no accidents in politics.”
At what level is the game rigged? My sense is that it is certainly rigged at a level above the level at which a Hillary Clinton and a Donald Trump operate, plausibly at the Rothschild mega-banking level or above. Presidential candidates and elected national presidents are puppets, marionettes who serve at the behest of influential others who largely remain in the shadows, i.e., the Shadow government, the Deep State.
One might be forgiven for advancing the idea that, in reality, Donald Trump was the one that the Deep State wanted all along, and that at a certain level a calculated decision was made well in advance to feed Hillary Clinton to the dogs, all the while having her to believe (falsely) that the Pied Piper gambit would redound to her advantage.
It doesn’t even matter if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agree with the plan; they are but puppets of darker forces at levels well above their respective heads. The plan appears to have been hatched at a higher level of the political MATRIX and percolated down to the Hillary Clinton campaign the year before the primary elections. Donald Trump very ably and willingly fell into the role — it perfectly suits his pompous, narcissistic, bloviating, tweeting, arrogant, multi-billionaire, New York City fat cat, playboy persona.
What was it Shakespeare said?
All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts ….
(As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII)
It’s political theatre. It’s a show. It’s a Deep State political puppet show, and Donald Trump is the anointed puppet du jour.
But, but …! — you remonstrate, and I rejoin: just so!
All this talk of Trump being an “outsider” is but so much nonsense. He’s not a man of the people, and never has been. In fact, he is a consummate insider. A multi-billionaire, who is on speaking terms with influential government officials at every level, local, state and federal. A man who can walk into the largest banks and successfully negotiate deals for hundreds of millions of dollars. A network TV reality show star for years on end. A builder and owner, past or present, of a whole chain of skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, golf courses, resorts and more. Owner of multiple, private jet aircraft and helicopters.
Let’s take the casino issue alone: you cannot be a player in the casino business and not do business with the mob, and not launder very large sums of dirty money. That’s what casinos are: they’re dirty money laundromats.
So Trump has laundered unknown hundreds of millions and probably billions of dollars for someone, or something. Now who needs to move around and launder vast sums of cash?
Why, the Deep State of course. The CIA, the Pentagon, the Big Banks, the DEA, the FBI, and sundry affiliated billionaires and mob bosses.
It’s a real swamp.
Donald Trump hasn’t been sent to Washington to “Drain the Swamp.
On the contrary, he’s very ably “Swamping the Drain!”
The government he’s appointed can be thus described: Zionists, Neocons, Goldman Sachs and multi-billionaires. In a word, thoroughly establishment.
There’s nothing “outsider” about it.
Only weeks into his presidency, Trump fired his National Security Advisor, in a “fit of stupidity”, as Paul Craig Roberts put it. And incredibly, Trump has retained James Comey as FBI Director, a transparently corrupt man who did the dirty work of the Clintons and Loretta Lynch and who just this week was publicly braying about remaining in his position for another six years, with nary a contrary word from Trump.
Only two weeks ago Trump was loudly complaining that his Trump Tower in New York City had been bugged by the Obama regime. And then last week, Wikileaks dumped a massive internal CIA data trove to the Internet that revealed that, indeed, there is a massive, illegal, unconstitutional, ongoing spy campaign against everyone, by the CIA. It is an operation so exhaustive in scope that it certainly includes the Trump Tower, and everyone and everything else. The extent of the illegal, totalitarian operation is mind boggling.
Wikileaks resoundingly ratified Trump’s allegations. He certainly was, and is, being spied on — by no less than the CIA.
So what was Trump’s response? He trotted out his press secretary to say that people should be “outraged” — not at the CIA’s massive subversion and violation of the law, the Constitution, and civil and human liberties, no, not at the totalitarian, illegal, unconstitutional behavior of the CIA, but rather at Wikileaks, because: “This is the kind of disclosure that undermines our country, our security and our well-being.”
As if the foregoing were not bad enough, Trump sent an absolute BB-brain of a nitwit, Nikki Haley, ex-governor of South Carolina, to be his United Nations Ambassador in New York. And far from seeking rapprochement with Russia, and calming tensions with China, since coming to power Trump has ratcheted tensions up with the Russians, and brought the simmering dispute with China in the South China Sea to an even tenser level.
Last week he sent nuclear-capable heavy bombers into South Korea, as a threat to North Korea and, also in recent days, the Pentagon announced plans to increase the troop level in Syria, in what amounts to an illegal military invasion of a sovereign state, in flagrant contravention of international law.
Translation of all of the above: unless he radically changes course, and very soon, Trump is revealing himself to be a plaything of the FBI, the CIA and the Pentagon, a dutiful Deep State political puppet, as it were.
Paul Craig Roberts has asked: Is Trump Already Finished?
To which I would sarcastically reply: oh, heavens no, he’s only getting started!
In fact, if Trump and his cabinet appointees continue with the rhetoric, policy statements and maneuvers that they have been making so far, Trump may have the USSA at war with Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Syria and God only knows who else, even faster than Hillary Clinton would have.
Interestingly, some of Trump’s staunchest supporters have been fundamentalist Christians, who, in some kind of misguided religious zeal, have conflated Donald Trump with their Christian savior beliefs, making him out to be some kind of Great Man, a Big Daddy, who will somehow “Save America” (whatever that means) and “Make America Great Again!” (whatever that means).
Notwithstanding that Jesus Christ himself is recorded in the Christian Bible as saying: “My Kingdom is not of this world!” — so many of his supposed followers, the Christian fundamentalists, go running after a slick, brash-talking, multi-billionaire, New York City real estate tycoon, forgetting that their professed Lord and savior also remarked: “Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
And yet, in their millions, these hordes of alleged “Christians” eagerly run after the Rich Man from New York City. There are even YouTube videos circulating on the Internet alleging that Donald Trump has been sent by God to “Save America” (whatever that means). The Deep State’s YouTube fundamentalist “Christian” propaganda division must be working overtime.
Of course, reliance on this external savior myth is nothing more than an abdication of personal responsibility, an infantile psychological projection on a bigger than life political figure to swoop in and make everything that is perceived to have gone wrong, right again.
This is nothing but personal weakness.
Here’s the reality: Trump is a weak, indecisive, confused, not very well informed, corrupt, vacillating, pompous, self-enriching, narcissistic, sociopathic, bloviating, lying, not-ready-for-prime-time, suck ass buffoon. (By contrast with Hillary Clinton, who is merely a satanic, psychopathic, endlessly criminally devious, pathological lying, serial murdering, war mongering demon from the pits of hell.) \sarcasm\
The public mind f*ck is beyond belief. The Trumpies and everyone else need to pull themselves together and see that they are all being massively played. Courtesy of Wikileaks, Trump now has all the evidence he needs that the CIA itself is tapping his phones and computers and TVs and probably also his egg timer, waffle maker and God knows what all else. If Trump doesn’t immediately use the Wikileaks CIA data dump to go Medieval on the CIA’s ass and ruthlessly clean house at Langley, from top to bottom, and also arrange some sort of pardon or clemency or immunity from prosecution for Julian Assange, then he is obviously in on the rigged game of Them versus Us and must henceforth be treated as one of Them, and not one of Us.
What I am telling you is: Trump is a complete pussy. He already revealed himself to be a weak leader when he fired Michael Flynn mere weeks after he appointed him National Security Advisor — and over almost nothing!
And he has permitted a known, corrupt FBI Director to remain in power, without protest whatsoever, at the same time that he unleashes the Neocons in the Pentagon to ratchet up tensions with Syria, Russia, China, North Korea and Iran almost to the point of outright war.
If it walks like a Deep State political puppet, talks like a Deep State political puppet and acts as a Deep State political puppet, then I submit to you that what you are looking at is a Deep State political puppet.
It’s Ruthless Business
See, the so-called “government” is really a corporation and its job is to f*ck you in the *ss, all the while telling you that it is your patriotic duty to love every second and ask for more.
That is Trump’s job. He’s been brought in as the “fixer”. Bad things are getting ready to happen, well, I mean, bad things are already happening, really bad things, but the human “herd” has not quite caught on en masse to the grim reality yet.
First of all, notwithstanding Trump’s rhetoric about bringing jobs back to the USSA, the reality is that due to mechanization, robotics, automation, digital technology and the like, hundreds of millions of jobs are being eliminated from the global economy right now. Many of the jobs being eliminated are in the USSA. In recent decades and years the USSA economy has lost millions of jobs that will never be coming back. The world has changed and many “workers” are now obsolete. What happens to millions of “obsolete” people who are no longer needed and have become superfluous?
Could it be that that’s why a Pied Piper is called in to take charge of the situation? He plays his magic flute, all the children fall in line behind him and off they go — never to be seen again! There are several tens of millions of workers in the USSA economy who are unemployed or under employed. Trump is simply lying; he will not be putting them all back to work at a decent, living wage. Just will not.
Secondly, the situation at Fukushima continues to go from very bad to much worse. The Pacific Ocean is dying right now as a direct consequence of all the radioactivity flowing into it from the catastrophically ruined nuclear power reactors at Fukushima, Japan. The Pacific Ocean won’t ever be back. It’s done. It’s finished. The whales, dolphins, tuna, crabs, scallops, oysters, all of it. It’s all dying off as the radioactivity progressively accumulates in the marine food chain. The radioactivity from Fukushima is also progressively poisoning North America. Every weather system that moves across the Pacific Ocean from Japan to North America brings with it a load of radioactivity that it dumps on fields, forests, streams, playgrounds and — well, you get the picture. It’s building up and up in the food chain, in the soil, in the lakes, and it will not stop coming. The future will be more and more radioactive; unfortunately rising rates of radioactivity are not compatible with good human health and so the end result is baked in the cake. Can you recall Donald Trump saying even one word about this situation? Ever? I can’t. Indeed, there is no evidence that the matter is even on his mental horizon.
Third, all around us the planet is swiftly dying. Please click the hyper-link and read the article.
Almost two-thirds of the wildlife on the Earth has died in the last 50 years.
The final third will go much faster than the previous two-thirds, due to the law of exponents, so realistically we are looking at a 15 or 10 year period of rapid biosphere collapse. We are already into the rapid collapse and it will accelerate from here. The last few years will go very quickly.
No major political figure is saying anything about this. Certainly not Donald Trump.
Trump is tremendously ignorant in substantive, planet-wide policy areas that greatly matter, like the impending death of the global biosphere.
The jobs will not be coming back to the USSA, not in the tens of millions. Trump is simply lying about that. And Fukushima is a radioactive, planet-killing event that Trump doesn’t even mention. All around us, the planet is rapidly dying and there is no evidence that this species ending event is even remotely on Trump’s mental horizon.
I say again: the people of the USSA are being played like a fiddle. And they are reacting in predictable, programmable and programmed ways.
Remember: he who pays the piper calls the tune! The paymasters would appear to be preeminently Goldman Sachs, seeing as Donald Trump has loaded up his government with Goldman Sachs executives, and behind them the Rothschild global faction. The music is being orchestrated by very practiced, global, social engineers. They have it down to a very dark science.
How Deep Does the Rabbit Hole Go?
It looks like we are talking about a political meta-script that is meticulously choreographed and directed from off stage, such that even many of the main actors (Trump, Clinton, etc.) heavily buy into the dramatic fiction that they are called upon to role play.
Are Shakespeare’s poetic musings the literal truth? “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players …” He was closely connected to influential people in his day. Was he clued in to how the world really works? Has it always been like that? Is it really a massive, scripted theatrical production and the joke’s on us and always has been?
Take a look at the Economist magazine’s cover for January of this year.
What do you know, another nuclear mushroom cloud with the Grim Reaper on horseback and the word death.
Also, we see Donald Trump sitting in judgement astride the world with the United States underfoot, as well as a tower (perhaps the Trump tower?) being split asunder by a lightning bolt, with Christian and communist hordes massed on opposite sides. Knowing the Rothschilds’ modus operandi the symbolism could plausibly be interpreted as a Rothschild recipe for false flag attacks, dictatorship and war, possibly nuclear war, in some, or all of which, Donald Trump appears slated to play a role.
In other words, we are now just about at the point where really big events start to kick in, and with a fiendish vengeance.
Death of the Earth’s ecosystems and biosphere. Global radioactive poisoning. Obsolescence of hundreds of millions of disposable workers in the coming years. Add it all up and it’s not a pretty picture.
I am reminded again of the Deagel.com numbers for national populations around the world, in the year 2025, just eight years away. Deagel.com clearly has connections to the global, military-security complex, and so presumably has access to data sources that the average person does not. Take a look:
2025 country forecast
The projection is for the USSA to lose 80% of its populace in the next eight years. Now what could cause that? There are many possibilities: economic collapse, nuclear war, biological warfare, famine, failure of the agricutural system, an EMP attack, collapse of the ecology, etc.
Look through the data. Deagel.com is also projecting extremely sharp population losses in Canada, Australia, Japan, Israel and much of Europe.
Huge, life, planet and species altering events are already in motion. They will run their course, and the movers and shakers behind the scenes, the so-called Powers That Be, know that perfectly well. Humanity is being lulled into a false sense of complacency, owing to normalcy bias, the better to be controlled, exploited, managed and maybe even slaughtered by the hundreds of millions or even billions.
The Deagel.com population numbers for the year 2025 are just that grim.
In the final analysis Donald Trump is where he is because he is an establishment player.
He may say this and that, he may do this and that, but if he does not abolish the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, Federal Reserve, the IRS as we now know it, and more, the corrupt game simply continues on as it is, with variations to distract the peasantry into thinking that more is going on than simple presidential chair shuffling on a sinking Titanic.
I am highly skeptical.
The whole game is insidiously rigged.
The political theatre of personalities is for the gullible plebes’ consumption and confusion. What the hidden guiding hands desire is a certain outcome.
As of now, we drift steadily towards war, albeit that Hillary Clinton will not be the one to start it. It appears that the Pied Piper will do the honors instead, and all of his myriad followers will heartily agree that it is a good thing that it is he that is doing it, and not Hillary Clinton, because — oh, the horror!
If you are financially able to relocate to South America and would like to move to, buy real estate in or make an exploratory visit to Ecuador while there is still time to get out of the USSA and NATO countries before the chaos and societal upheaval worsens, write to me and I will put you in touch with professional people who help expats relocate, move in, get visas and rent or buy property. The climate is wonderful in Ecuador and the papayas are plentiful!

Story #3: Americans Have Fewer TVs On Average Than They Did In 2009
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plans to start her own TV show in order to “lead” the anti-Trump resistance. A Clinton insider said “she’s convinced she’d get fabulous ratings.”
Though she has largely faded from public prominence after her “crushing” defeat last November, Hillary Clinton is determined “not to fade into the background,” according to Clinton insiders. Apparently unable to register the fact that she was arguably the most unpopular and unelectable presidential candidate of all time, Clinton is already plotting her come-back for a run in the 2020 presidential election. According to Clinton insiders who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein, Clinton has “been talking very seriously about the idea of having her own television show.”
In discussing what such a show would entail, Clinton has suggested that she would host the program, where she would “discuss the issues of the day from a progressive point of view, have top guests, interview world leaders and progressive thinkers.” Klein’s source further asserted that Clinton is “convinced she’d get fabulous ratings in a political climate where there’s so much anger in Democratic circles over Donald Trump’s election.”
However, it appears that Clinton’s expectations for her return to the limelight are out-of-touch with reality, not unlike her failed presidential campaign. Just over the weekend, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) selected Tom Perez as its new chairman. Perez, who conspired to boost Clinton over Sanders in the 2016 primary, is widely disliked by the more progressive elements of the party, spurring many Democrats to openly discuss their desire to abandon the party entirely over Perez’s appointment. The “Bernie Sanders wing” of the party is both influential and sizable, yet establishment Democrats – Clinton included – continue to avoid facing the reality of the situation.
Though Clinton’s TV show has yet to materialize, she is already trying to make her public comeback on the heels of Perez’s ascension to the top position in the DNC. A video released over the weekend shows Clinton posturing herself as the face of the anti-Trump resistance and as the “acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party.”
In the video, Clinton states:
We as Democrats must move forward with courage, confidence and activism, and stay focused on the elections we must win this year and next.
Let resistance plus persistence equal progress for our party and our country.
…Keep fighting and keep the faith… and I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.
We’ll see soon enough if Clinton’s efforts will allow her to build a meaningful following or if popular support for her as a candidate will attract the same size crowds as her 2016 primary campaign. History suggests that the latter is much more likely, no matter how well-produced or well-publicized her TV show may be.
