Is the Trump administration closing in on Pizzagate and John Podesta?

“Pizzagate” is the term given to speculations and assertions that there is a pedophile network connecting Democratic Party élites and two Washington, D.C. pizzerias, Besta Pizza and Comet Ping Pong. The latter is a pizzeria with a Disneyish façade owned by a homosexual named James Alefantis, who is a former boyfriend of David Brock, a powerful Democratic Party operative and Clinton loyalist. Oddly, for a pizzeria owner, Alefantis is considered the 49th most powerful person in D.C. and has made four visits to the Obama White House.

comet-ping-pong

The word “pizza” in Pizzagate isn’t just a reference to Comet Ping Pong pizzeria but stems from the many cryptic references to “pizza” and other food items (“hotdogs”; “pasta”; “tempting” “cheeses”; “yummy” “sauces”) in a collection of curious emails sent by and to John Podesta, a longtime Democratic Party operative who was Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff, Obama’s White House counselor and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. This is the same John Podesta whose emails, published by WikiLeaks, reveal his and his brother Tony’s enthrallment with a cannibalism painting and their involvement with satanic performance-artist Marina Abramovic’s “spirit cooking” bodily-fluids dinners.

Three weeks ago, in a wholly unverified and unverifiable interview with the administrator of a website called Victurus Libertas, the alleged “FBI insider” who first broached the subject of Pizzagate on the chat forum 4chan last July, predicted the imminent (“next week”) “high level” arrests of “3 dozen pedophile politicians, some who are quite well known.” The unnamed “FBI insider” even gave the initials of some of the big-name D.C. politicians who are “being investigated” — BF (Barney Frank?), MB (Michael Bloomberg?), TK (Tim Kaine?), DF (Diane Feinstein?), JM (John McCain?), LG (Lindsey Graham?). Along with the politicians, the “insider” said “journalists, pundits, money men, lobbyists” would also be arrested in the impending FBI dragnet, and that “Many are being tracked down and are about to be exposed, arrested, drained. Some may off themselves when they realize they risk prison, ruination, loss of power, etc.”

The “next week” went by, then another week, and another week, but there was no FBI arrests of D.C. pedophiles.

Two things happened in recent days, however, which give us some hope that arrests actually may be forthcoming in Pizzagate that the MSM so loudly protest is “debunked” fake news. (See “Failure of American Journalism: Pizzagate and the muzzling of Ben Swann”)

By the way, it is interesting that a year before he died of a “heart attack,” in addition to calling John Podesta a “world class underage sex slave op cover-upper,” the late Andrew Breitbart had also tweeted that the liberal MSM protect, aid and abet pedophile sex trafficking.

(1) President Trump announces a crackdown on sex trafficking

Four days ago, on February 21, President Trump had a meeting with human trafficking experts, after which he said in a short, dramatic press conference that the issue of sex trafficking has been on the radar of the federal government “for some time,” but that since he took office, the investigation has become “much more focused”. Trump vowed that he will direct the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies to devote more resources and personnel so as to bring the “full force and weight of our government” to put an end to the “horrific, really horrific crimes taking place.”

Recall that three weeks ago, the new Trump administration’s Department of Homeland Security released a very curious PSA on human trafficking which prominently featured a pizzeria.

What you may not know is that Trump has long inveighed against pedophilia. In a tweet on October 8, 2012, Donald Trump said something must be done about the sex trafficking of “missing children” and that pedophiles should be put to death after a “fast trial”.

trump-tweet-on-death-penalty-for-pedophiles

Below is a transcript of President Trump’s announcement on human trafficking, followed by a video of his press conference (h/t YourNewsWire.com):

“I want to make it clear today that my administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking and I am prepared to bring the full force and weight of our government at the federal level in order to solve this horrific problem that is getting worse.

Human trafficking is a dire problem, both domestically and internationally, and is one that’s made really a challenge. And it’s really made possible to a large extent, more of a modern phenomenon, by what’s taking place on the Internet, as you probably know.

Solving the human trafficking epidemic, which is what it is, is a priority for my administration. We’re going to help out a lot. ‘Solve’ is a wonderful word, a beautiful word, but I can tell you, we’re going to help a lot.”

Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney certainly understood President Trump’s words as a crackdown on Pizzagate. She wrote in a tweet on February 23, 2017:

“Forewarning: this brings down Dems and Repubs! He needs to go straight all the way because this goes to the top!”

(2) The Rothchilds throw John Podesta to the wolves

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, 62, is the CEO of E.L. Rothschild, a holding company she owns with her third husband, Sir Evelyn Robert de Rothschild, a member of the very powerful Rothschild family. The company manages investments in The Economist Group, owner of The Economist magazine, Congressional Quarterly and the Economist Intelligence Unit; E.L. Rothschild LP, a leading independent wealth management firm in the United States; as well as real estate, agricultural and food interests.

clintons-with-evelyn-lynn-de-rothschild

As Claire Bernish reports for the Australian National Review, Lynn de Rothschild has a close association with Hillary Clinton, as shown in emails released by WikiLeaks:

  • In an email exchange in April 2010 with the subject heading “Miss you”, Rothschild tells Hillary she would love to catch up and that I remain your loyal adoring pal.” Hillary responds in kind, let’s make that happen,” and signs off, “Much love, H.”
  • In September 2010, Hillary messaged Rothschild, “I was trying to reach you to tell you and Teddy that I asked Tony Blair to go to Israel as part of our full court press on keeping the Middle East negotiations going.” Hillary then asks obsequiously, “Let me know what penance I owe you.” Rothschild thanks Hillary for “personally reaching out to us,” and saccharinely writes, “You are the best, and we remain your biggest fans. Sweet dreams and Godspeed with everything you are doing.”
  • In their relationship, Hillary Clinton is the subordinate who takes orders from the Rothschilds as shown in a January 7, 2015 email from Lynn de Rothschild to Hillary’s aide, Cheryl Mills. Referring to a blog by Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-) which was critical of Hillary’s close association with Wall Street and big banks, Rothschild writes: “I think this blog overstates what Warren was doing, but we need to craft the economic message for Hillary so that Warren’s common inaccurate conclusions are addressed. Xoxo Lynn.”

On the evening of February 21, 2017, the same day of President Trump’s announcement of a crackdown on sex trafficking, in a tweet, Lynn de Rothschild calls John Podesta “pathetic,” “arrogant,” “a loser,” and blames him for Hillary losing the election to Trump.

Are the above recent events signs that the Trump administration will take decisive action on Pizzagate?

We can only hope — and pray — that the powerful D.C. users and abusers of  innocent children be brought to justice.

Spooks declare war on President Trump: ‘He will die in jail’

chuck-schumer

John R. Schindler (@20committee) is a former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst and counterintelligence officer who clearly still maintains the worldview of the NSA — one that, despite a paucity of evidence, insists on Russia as an enemy of the United States who intervened in the 2016 election in favor of Trump. And although he no longer works at the NSA, Schindler nevertheless adopts the agency’s antipathy toward a sitting and duly elected POTUS, calling President Trump “a demented asshole” in a recent tweet.

john-schindler

In an ominous op/ed titled “The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins” for the Observer, published on Feb. 12, 2017, a day before Gen. Mike Flynn’s forced resignation from being President Trump’s national security adviser, Schindler writes:

“[T]he still-forming Trump administration is already doing serious harm to America’s longstanding global intelligence partnerships. In particular, fears that the White House is too friendly to Moscow are causing close allies to curtail some of their espionage relationships with Washington—a development with grave implications for international security, particularly in the all-important realm of counterterrorism.

Now those concerns are causing problems much closer to home—in fact, inside the Beltway itself. Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administration—not only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trump—that it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust….

The president has repeatedly gone out of his way to antagonize our spies, mocking them and demeaning their work.

Next, Schindler trashes Mike Flynn, describing Flynn as “widely disliked in Washington for his brash personality,” “managerial incompetence,” “poor judgment,” and “preference for conspiracy-theorizing over intelligence facts” (probably a reference to Pizzagate). Then Schindler just about outright admits that it was the NSA that wiretapped Flynn’s phone calls with Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., which led to Flynn’s resignation:

“In pretty much every capital worldwide, embassies that provide sanctuary to hostile intelligence services are subject to counterintelligence surveillance, including monitoring phone calls. Our spy services conduct signals intelligence—SIGINT for short—against the Russian embassy in Washington, just as the Russians do against our embassy in Moscow. Ambassadors’ calls are always monitored: that’s how the SpyWar works, everywhere.

Ambassador Kislyak surely knew his conversations with Flynn were being intercepted, and it’s incomprehensible that a career military intelligence officer who once headed a major intelligence agency didn’t realize the same.”

Then Schindler redoubles on that secret 35-page “golden shower” dossier on Trump (so secret CNN reported on it and Buzzfeed published in its entirety) which was compiled by ex-British spook Christopher Steele from rumors, which Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had admitted is unverified. Schindler writes:

“A new report by CNN indicates that important parts of the infamous spy dossier that professed to shed light on President Trump’s shady Moscow ties have been corroborated by communications intercepts. In other words, SIGINT strikes again, providing key evidence that backs up some of the claims made in that 35-page report compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence official with extensive Russia experience.”

Schindler also redoubles on the wholly unsubstantiated claim that the Kremlin had intervened in the 2016 election in favor of Trump:

“Now SIGINT confirms that some of the non-salacious parts of what Steele reported, in particular how senior Russian officials conspired to assist Trump in last year’s election, are substantially based in fact. This is bad news for the White House, which has already lashed out in angry panic, with Press Secretary Sean Spicer stating, ‘We continue to be disgusted by CNN’s fake news reporting.’”

Schindler then ominously asserts that the intelligence agencies that supposedly work for their boss, President Trump, effectively have declared war against him:

Our spies have had enough of these shady Russian connections—and they are starting to push back.

According to Schindler, thus far, the spooks’ war against President Trump consists of:

  1. The CIA denying a security clearance to one of Flynn’s men, Rob Townley, a former Marine intelligence officer selected to head up the National Security Council’s Africa desk. Townley was denied a clearance to see Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI), which is required to have access to SIGINT. Schindler maintains that new CIA Director Mike Pompeo endorses the Townley SCI denial.
  2. Even worse, Schindler claims that “some of our spy agencies have begun withholding intelligence from the Oval Office,” ostensibly because of Trump’s “lackadaisical attitude” toward the President’s Daily Brief (PDB), the most sensitive of all intelligence documents. Schindler claims that Trump has received the PDBs “haphazardly” and “has frequently blown off the PDB altogether, tasking Flynn with condensing it into a one-page summary with no more than nine bullet-points.” Schindler writes:

“A senior National Security Agency official explained that NSA was systematically holding back some of the ‘good stuff’ from the White House, in an unprecedented move. For decades, NSA has prepared special reports for the president’s eyes only, containing enormously sensitive intelligence. In the last three weeks, however, NSA has ceased doing this, fearing Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets.

Since NSA provides something like 80 percent of the actionable intelligence in our government, what’s being kept from the White House may be very significant indeed. However, such concerns are widely shared across the IC, and NSA doesn’t appear to be the only agency withholding intelligence from the administration out of security fears.”

That “Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets” is a reference to the persistent leaks vexing the Trump administration — leaks that most likely are the work of the NSA and other intelligence agencies. The same intelligence agencies now use those leaks as their excuse to withhold sensitive intelligence from President Trump. That’s chutzpah!

Schindler then concludes with giving himself a pat on the back, and a threat:

“I previously warned the Trump administration not to go to war with the nation’s spies, and here’s why. This is a risky situation, particularly since President Trump is prone to creating crises foreign and domestic with his incautious tweets. In the event of a serious international crisis of the sort which eventually befalls almost every administration, the White House will need the best intelligence possible to prevent war, possibly even nuclear war. It may not get the information it needs in that hour of crisis, and for that it has nobody to blame but itself.”

On February 15, 3 days after his op/ed was published, John Schindler sent out a tweet, saying that the intelligence community (IC) is going “nuclear” on President Trump, and that a message from a “senior IC friend” says Trump “will die in jail”.

schindler-go-nuclear-tweet-2-15-2017

On February 16, the Wall St. Journal confirms what Schindler claims:

U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter.”

It appears John Schindler is another Anthony-Weiner exhibitionist pervert.

In June 2014, a text message conversation with a photo of a penis and John Schindler’s name atop it was circulated on Twitter. An unnamed blogger sent a complaint to the administrators of the U.S. Navy War College (NWC) where Schindler was teaching as a professor of national security affairs. Gawker obtained the emails the blogger had sent to the NWC under a Freedom of Information Act request. The emails refer to Schindler’s habit of calling himself a “spy”; detail his correspondence with an unnamed woman (who apparently received his penis photo); and accuse Schindler of staging “cyber warfare” against his online enemies, using “thuggish tactics” to silence NSA critics, and violating various federal laws.

NWC’s president ordered an investigation and placed Schindler on administrative leave. On August 29, 2014, the college announced that Schindler voluntarily resigned. (Source: Stars and Stripes)

Paul Craig Roberts, former Reagan administration assistant treasury secretary, is so pessimistic about the war between Trump and the spooks that he declares the presidency of Donald Trump effectively dead. See “The Trump Presidency: RIP“.

Pray for President Trump!

Pray for America.

Is the NSA the real president of the United States?

Jon Rappoport's Blog

Is the NSA the real president of the United States?

By Jon Rappoport

The US intelligence community continues its war to kick Donald Trump to the curb and destroy his presidency.

Obviously, the NSA, the CIA, and their silent partners want to continue to run this country.

So they spy and leak, spy and leak.

We’ll get to the guts of the problem in a minute, but first a word from Bill Binney.

Breitbart: “William Binney, a former highly placed NSA official turned whistleblower, contended in an exclusive interview today that the National Security Agency (NSA) is ‘absolutely’ monitoring the phone calls of President Donald Trump.”

“Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001 after spending more than 30 years with the agency.”

“Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: ‘Absolutely. How did…

Neo-con Bill Kristol openly supports a deep-state coup: What this means for Trump’s presidency

On February 13, General Mike Flynn resigned from being President Trump’s national security adviser and apologized for telling then-VP-elect Mike Pence an untruth — that Flynn had not discussed the issue of sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Reportedly, Flynn resigned in lieu of being outright fired.

President Trump did the right thing in removing Flynn because he cannot have as his adviser someone who lies and who might have violated the law (Logan Act) in speaking with and negotiating with the Russian ambassador without Trump’s authorization.

But this matter is more than “just” the removal of a dishonest aide because it has to do with how Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador came to light in the first place. Only U.S. intelligence agencies could have accessed, by illegally wiretapping, Flynn’s conversation, and then leaked the transcript of the conversation to the MSM who are just chafing at the bit to find anything to take down Trump’s presidency.

In the last weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies were complicit in an effort to subvert the November 8 election with wholly unverified and unfounded allegations that Russia had intervened in the election by hacking and leaking to WikiLeaks damaging emails of the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and the chair of her campaign John Podesta. Trump responded that, as President, he will reform the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA.

At the time, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) darkly warned that Trump would be “really dumb” to take on the intelligence community because “they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.” Asked if this was a threat against Trump, former Senator Ron Paul (R) said, “I think he [Schumer] is speaking the truth there — better watch out. I think Trump knows about it. That’s why he has private security.” (See my post “Trump’s war with the CIA”)

The take-down of Mike Flynn was the first shot at the Trump administration from the intelligence agencies that are bureaucracies in the executive branch of the U.S. government over which President Trump presumably is the head. The intelligence agencies’ illegal wiretapping of Flynn’s phone conversation and transmission of the transcript to the MSM therefore is an act of revolt, pure and simple. As Thomas Lifson of the American Thinker points out:

Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government. An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics. Almost certainly, its new head, [CIA Director] Mike Pompeo, was not consulted . . . .

Note that the law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media. Not only is the crime underlying the “scandal” being ignored, but the criminals are being hailed. On Morning Joe‘s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers “heroes.” …

The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right.  But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.

This interference in domestic politics by the CIA should be regarded as a major threat to our democracy, but of course our Trump-hating domestic media are reveling in a major point scored against the new president.

To make matters even worse, the leak of Flynn’s conversation is only one of several leaks from the Trump administration. In a series of tweets, President Trump identifies the problem:

trump-tweet-on-leakstrump-tweets-on-intelligence1trump-tweets-on-intelligence

On the intelligence agencies’ takedown of Flynn, neo-conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor at large of The Weekly Standard and a network political commentator, tweeted:

bill-kristol-coup-tweet-2-14-2017

Kristol’s declaration that he prefers the unelected “deep state” to the constitutional government of duly-elected President Trump is nothing other than Kristol’s admission that he supports a coup d’état.

One of Donald Trump’s campaign slogans was “Drain the Swamp”. President Trump must thoroughly excise the rot in the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) — Gen. Flynn would have been director of the NSA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the FBI must arrest the wiretappers and leakers, the reporters who solicited and received the transcript from an illegal wiretap, as well as Bill Kristol for openly advocating and fomenting treason against the United States (as per Article III of the U.S. Constitution).

The continuation of Trump’s presidency and his very life depend on it.

Pray for President Trump. Pray for America!

Hillary’s campaign chairman John Podesta has cannibalism painting in his office

It’s been only 20 days since the 2016 election and already pundits are calling it “historic”.

Future and, hopefully, objective historians will look back to our time and adjudge the important role that WikiLeaks had played by its release of a continuous series of thousands of hacked emails, each more devastating than the last in what is revealed of the Democratic Party and its élites.

WikiLeaks‘ release began with emails of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) showing its corrupt machinations to undermine Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s rival in the party primaries. Next, the emails of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were released, which expose her reckless lawlessness and her selling of State Department favors to foreign governments.

The emails of John Podesta, 67, a longtime Democratic Party apparatchik and chairman of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign, were the last batch that WikiLeaks released, with the most revealing ones published when the Election was only days away.

wikileaks-tweet-on-spirit-cookingAmong them were emails exposing the association of Podesta and his brother Tony, Hillary and her close aide Huma Abedin, with a satanic so-called performance artist named Marina Abramović and her “spirit cooking dinners” — an occult sex ritual involving menstrual blood, urine, sperm and breast milk. Ingestion of human blood is a form of cannibalism. (See “Evidence that Hillary Clinton and her associates are satanists“.)

marina-abramovic-holding-baphomet-head

But John Podesta’s perversity is not limited to his participation in Abramović’s “spirit cooking,” as shown in his macabre taste in art, specifically an oil painting in his New York office depicting two men with knives and plate in hand, about to carve into and cannibalize a third.

podesta-cannibalism-painting

john-podestas-cannibalism-painting

The sickening painting was lent to Podesta by his brother Tony, one of the most powerful lobbyists in Washington, D.C.

The image was first shown in 2015 in Politico‘s photo gallery of Hillary’s campaign headquarters.

john-podestas-cannibalism-painting1

Nine months later on April 28, 2016, the painting was mentioned in a fawning article by Jay Newton-Small for Time magazine. Calling Podesta “the wise man,” “commanding presence in [Hillary] Clinton’s orbit,” and “the man behind the Clinton campaign curtain,” Newton-Small wrote:

“On the wall in his office at Hillary Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters, campaign chairman John Podesta has an oil painting on loan from his lobbyist brother, who is an avid art collector. The image shows two men hunched over a dining room table, bearing knives and forks. On the table lays a man in a suit, who looks vaguely like Podesta. ‘It’s better to be the guy with the fork,’ Podesta quips to his colleagues, if they ask about the image, ‘than the guy on the table.'”

InfoWars astutely points out that Podesta’s cannibalism painting is “incredibly similar to” an Abramović “performance art” event at the 2011 annual gala of the Museum of Contemporary Art, attended by many Hollywood celebrities, in which participants simulated cannibalism by eating pieces of life-size cakes made in the image of Abramović and pop singer Debbie Harry. (See “Is WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange dead? – the connection with Pamela Anderson“)

cannibalism-art-gala-abramovic-harry

His enthrallment with cannibalism, under the guise of an oil painting and “spirit cooking,” is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg of John Podesta’s perversity. Even worse is his and his brother’s pedophile activities, unmasked in a collection of emails published by WikiLeaks.

That such a man has occupied some of the most powerful posts in D.C. — as Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff, and Barack Obama’s White House counsel — should trouble any sane person.

Trump’s election will be the biggest F-you in history

If we go by most of the MSM/corporate polls, Hillary Clinton will win on November 8.

But there are dissenting voices. Among them is Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who’s still predicting a 98% chance of not just a Trump win, but a landslide. Interestingly, the dissenters also include a flaming leftist — docu-maker Michael Moore.

Moore is loathsome, but I don’t think anyone has captured or articulated the reasons why so many Americans resonate to Trump’s anti-globalism as well as Moore.

Below is an excerpt from a recent speech Moore delivered, followed by my transcription:

“I know a lot of people in Michigan that are planning to vote for Trump…. They don’t necessarily like him that much and they don’t necessarily agree with him. They’re not racists and rednecks certainly; they’re actually pretty decent people. And so I wanted to, after talking to a number of them, I wanted to write this.

Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of the Ford Motor executives and said, ‘If you close these factories you’re planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, [when I’m President] I’m going to put a 35% tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody’s gonna buy them.’

It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania, in Wisconsin, the Brexit states. You live here in Ohio, you know what I’m talking about.

Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting. That’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff — what used to be part of what was called the middle class — loves Trump. He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for, the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them. And on November 8th, Election Day, although they lost their jobs, although they’ve been foreclosed on by the bank, next came the divorce, and now the wife and kids are gone, the car’s been repo’ed, they haven’t had a real vacation in years, they’re stuck with the shitty Obamacare plan when you can’t even get a fucking [inaudible]. They’ve essentially lost everything they had, except one thing. The one thing that doesn’t cost them a cent and is guaranteed to them by the American Constitution — the right to vote.

They might be penniless, they might be homeless, they might be fucked over and fucked up. It doesn’t matter because it’s equalized on that day. A millionaire has the same number of votes as the person without a job — one. And there’s more of the former middle class than there are in the millionaire class.

So on November 8th, the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain and take that lever or felt pen or touchscreen and put a big fucking X in the box by the name of the man who is threatening to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J. Trump.

They see that the elites who ruined their lives hate Trump. Corporate America hates Trump. Wall Street hates Trump. The career politicians hate Trump. The media hates Trump, after they loved him and created him and now hate him. Thank you, media.

The enemy of my enemy is who I’m voting for on November 8. Yes, on November 8, you, Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, Billy Bob Blow — all the Blows get to blow up the whole goddamn system because it’s your right. Trump’s election is going to be the biggest fuck-you ever recorded in human history, and it will feel good.”

Perversely, after articulately so beautifully the profound alienation of so many Americans and why Trump speaks for them, Michael Moore then proceeded to make a whole-hog defense and endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

Here’s a screenshot from a video showing “Jabba the Hut” Michael Moore making the speech you heard and read above.

What if Trump loses?

Below are excerpts from a powerful essay, “The Elite ‘Have No Idea’ — Society is Near the Breaking Point,” written by a guy who calls himself Chindit13 for ZeroHedge:

“What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface.  Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded. They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says ‘1788’ on it.  Something is close.  Very close.  Society is near the breaking point.

My own experience is that Hillary’s so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed.  Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed.  The Deplorables have the longest fuse.  It is, however, a fuse. […]

The Deplorables, however, are not possessed of infinite patience. Like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point it will be released into the circuitry of society.

The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune.  That thought no doubt results from being immersed inside a cocoon where dissonant voices are not allowed.  When the levee breaks, or the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gob smacked.

Precious few of them are anywhere near as immune as they believe themselves to be.  Additionally, what they might think, or hope, is their support, their security, their safe space, doesn’t really exist.

Most of society’s guardians, whether they are law enforcement or military, are card-carrying members of the Deplorables.

France was similarly constructed in the late 1780s.  The elite were isolated only in thought, not in reality.  Their protection was of a Potemkin Village nature: not actually there, but merely a facade that gave them false comfort.

They paid dearly for their arrogance and ignorance.

History may not repeat, but it does rhyme.  The calendar really does seem to say 1788, so 1789—and 1792–are not as far off as some would like to believe.

This is not a call to arms, but it is a call to reality.  Ignore it at your own peril.

Some may see these words as a threat.  They are not.  They are, however, a warning, and a warning from someone who is a student of history.

Every society eventually reaches a breaking point.  Ours is nearly there.  Some of those who might feel threatened, the so-called elite and insiders, think that they can buy protection as easily as they can buy a Gulfstream.  How naïve!  Who are the private security contractors?  Who are the various SOGs?  Like law enforcement and the rest of the military, they are the Deplorables.  The Deplorables will take your money, but you will not take their lives.  Better said, they won’t give up their lives for you or your family.  The security you believe you have purchased is an illusion.  Make that delusion.  Best to get that out front here and now.

Some might think this is all Trump’s fault.  Again, that shows a degree of ignorance and naïveté which characterizes the elite.  Trump is a symptom, not a cause.  He might even be a salve, as the changes he could bring might defuse some of the current anger.

On the other hand, Hillary is a lit match in a room of dynamite.  She, like many of the self-important, thinks her very existence is a favor to the rest of us.  She epitomizes the absolute worst of what America has become.  Above the law, wealthy not through accomplishment, but through influence peddling only, and a bull in a china shop in terms of her effect on both the country and the world—and I apologize to bulls for that analogy.  The world is more unstable because of her.

America is less safe because of her.  Russia and the US—the two largest nuclear powers—are more at odds because of her.  With her in power, we will reach the breaking point at home and internationally, perhaps leading to ‘accidental’ nuclear war, as the heightened rhetoric impacts clear thinking.  Society is more stratified because of her.  Race relations have deteriorated because of her (and Obama).

There are few current ills in society and in geopolitics that cannot be laid at her feet, at least to some extent.  The Great Deceiver to many, who exhibits an astonishing aversion to truth telling, is enough to make even an agnostic wonder if the anti-Christ hasn’t finally arrived for its three and a half years of rule.

A recently hacked email of John Podesta finds him saying ‘she (Hillary) has begun to hate everyday Americans’.  No doubt the same feelings were voiced by [Romania dictator] Nicolas Ceaucescu.  It turned out the feeling was mutual. […]

Elect Hillary, and continue with business as usual, and it is likely this warning will become an epitaph for the America we know.  Society may collapse regardless, because the rot is already very great, but she will hasten the day of reckoning. […]”

FBI confirms U.S. has a shadow government

According to Melissa Dykes of Activist Post, reportedly Bill Clinton once told senior White House reporter Sarah McClendon:

“Sarah, there’s a government inside the government, and I don’t control it.”

[Note: Some attribute the quote to George Herbert Walker Bush.]

Call it “deep state,” “secret government,” “double government” or “shadow government,” the terms all refer to more or less the same thing — that representative government in the U.S. is an illusion because we are actually ruled by a shadowy, unelected group of élites.

So who make up the shadow government?

One view is that the CIA initially formed America’s secret government. After 1981, it morphed into the “deep state” — an amalgamation of private corporations and enterprises, the media, telecommunications and social media which run most of the U.S. government from behind the scenes. (See “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, CIA, and America’s deep-state secret government“)

A more prosaic and less bombastic view of the shadow government is the Administrative State — the vast federal government bureaucracies staffed by unelected, faceless officials who, in “administering” the U.S. government, effectively are the government because they make the myriad of  administrative rules and regulations that implement the vague policies devised by Congress. In so doing, those faceless officials wield power over every facet of our lives. (See “America is ruled by an unelected double government“)

The Powers That Be - deep state

Now a recent dump of FBI’s files on the Hillary Clinton investigation reveals there really is a shadow government.

On October 17, 2016, the FBI issued nearly 100 new pages of notes and interview summaries concerning the Bureau’s decision not to launch a criminal charge against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton over her use of an unsecured email server. The FBI documents include an interview with an unnamed individual, who claimed that Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests related to Clinton went through a powerful group called the 7th Floor Group or the Shadow Government. Here’s page 56 of the FBI document:

There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE [State Department] officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) process. Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries. The known regular attendees included Jonathan FINER, Chief of Staff for Secretary of State John KERRY, Jennifer STOUT, Deputy Chief of Staff, Heather HIGGINBOTTOM, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, [Patrick] KENNEDY, Julia FRIFIELD, Assistant Secretary, Legislative Affairs, [REDACTED] Office of the Legal Adviser, [REDACTED] Office of the Legal Adviser overseeing STATE’s [REDACTED] and [REDACTED].

Here’s a screenshot of page 56 (h/t Activist Post):

The FBI issued the document containing the “7th floor group” on October 17. By October 19, two days later, someone had already posted an entry on “7th floor group” on Wikipedia, which says:

The 7th floor refers to the 7th floor of the Harry S Truman Building in Washington, DC, which acts as the office building for the US State Department, and contains a 7th floor that has no windows. […]

The 7th Floor Group is said to regularly discuss FOIA processes and Congressional records. Hillary Clinton’s office was located on the 7th Floor of the US State Department Headquarters, where she met with her top advisers, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and others. […] Currently, the 7th Floor Group meets on Wednesdays, which includes Secretary of State John Kerry, Deputy Chief of Staff Jennifer Park Stout, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Heather Higginbottom, Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield, and members of the Office of the Legal Adviser.

Does he look like the shadow government to you?

Does he look like the shadow government to you?

I don’t believe the 7th Floor Group is America’s actual shadow government, and certainly not the deep state. From its membership, the 7th Floor Group appears to be a collection of mid-level State Department officials. They are mere flunkies, just a step above we the little people — the public faces behind whom are the real powers that be. Like all puppeteers, those in the shadow government operate strictly behind the curtains.

Of course, talk of a shadow government immediately identifies you as a “conspiracy theory” nutcase, to be mocked, derided and dismissed.

By the way, did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the label “conspiracy theory” to discredit anyone who raised questions about the official narrative of the JFK assassination?
