The State Of The Deep State - The Monster In America's Closet

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by James Howard Kunstler via Peak Prosperity,

We’ve been hearing a lot about the so-called Deep State lately. What to make of this shadowy monster? Some observers link it to the paranoid fantasy called the New World Order, a staple of political talk radio (and a hobgoblin I don’t believe in). In popular movies such as the Jason Bourne epics and Mission Impossible, the Deep State launches hyper-complex schemes that work flawlessly and never fail. That is exactly why they have such high entertainment appeal. Viewers are thrilled by the precision, by the conceit of seeming infallibility. The Deep State definitely exists; it just doesn’t work the way it is depicted in the movies. 

I like to say that I’m allergic to conspiracy theories because human beings are generally too inept to carry out schemes at the grand scale, as well as being poor secret-keepers. Insider knowledge is almost always swapped around, even in secretive organizations, often recklessly so, because doling it out confers status, tactical advantage, and sometimes money for the doler-outer. But the Deep State isn’t a secret. It operates in plain sight.

Military

First, of course, is the Pentagon leviathan plus all of its suppliers, enablers, and lackeys — the beast that President Eisenhower warned his fellow citizens to beware of in his farewell address, calling it “the military-industrial complex.” It’s worse than ever, especially having engaged in two major fiascos on Asian soil the past decade, pointless escapades that cost the lives of 8,000 soldiers in action, many more maimed for life, and in suicides of servicemen returning home in despair to a spavined economy and the manifold indignities of a cruel and incompetent veterans’ bureaucracy completely unable to care for their needs. Iraq and Afghanistan proved the futility of America’s neurotic mission to try to control everything and every place in the world. In fact, the US military could not control the only two things that mattered in those faraway lands: the terrain and the behavior of the population. What else is there in a military campaign?

This did not stop President Obama from almost repeating the fiasco in Syria in 2013. Only some reality-testing by Vladimir Putin put the schnitz on that operation. For the moment, Putin has also juked Obama and his Secretary of State Kerry from further shenanigans in Ukraine, but the US looks like a sloppy drunk in a barroom at last call spoiling for a fight. We’d better hope we don’t find it. It’s one thing to fight a band of ragged Taliban in the Helmand highlands; it’s another thing to poke a country (Russia) with a thousand nukes targeting everything from Bangor to Bellingham.

Finance

Then there are the multiple vampire squids of Wall Street (shorthand for all of finance) engaged in funneling as much wealth out of the disintegrating middle class as possible, creaming off gargantuan transaction fees, premiums, and spreads from every transaction in the entire universe (especially in their carry-trade with the Federal Reserve), and buying off elected officials wholesale, by the hundredweight, to ensure that their swindling operations go unimpeded. Wall Street’s hired servelings now write the latest laws for financial regulation. It is nothing but racketeering on the grandest scale, plain and simple, and it is sponsored wholeheartedly by the Deep State. The Supreme Court has lent a hand in this by defining corporations as persons entitled to express political fellowship via unlimited cash contributions to election campaigns. Wall Street is assisted in turn by the thoroughly corrupt two major political parties. The fabled “revolving door” that shuffles Wall Street executives in and out of government now spins so fast that it is more like a turbine than a door. The degeneracy of Wall Street is covered sufficiently elsewhere in my writings to leave it at that for the purposes of this essay.

Security

Present worries over the Deep State are focused on its massive security apparatus, made up of a combination of venerable old institutions such as the CIA and the Defense Intelligence services with some newer ones such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Transportation Safety Agency (TSA), Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the good ol' IRS, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), and God knows how many out-of-sight “security” offices in the dark precincts of seemingly benign agencies like the National Parks Service and the Bureau of Weights and Measures. On top of all that, add the newly militarized local police all across this land with their camo-clad SWAT teams, bomb-proof Hummers, grenade-launchers, surveillance drones, 20-ton Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles (MRAPs), military-grade helicopters, and in the case of one Arizona sheriff’s department, a pre-owned US Army tank.

The sheer multiplication of “security” officialdom ought to give a sentient citizen a case of the vapors. The work of these outfits is supposedly coordinated by the new umbrella entity, the National Security Agency (NSA), but that’s probably too slippery a description for the organized chaos it represents. The NSA can only pretend to manage all these posses of tech-drunk cowboys. The NSA is a pretense wrapped in a wish shrouded in techno-narcissism.

Grafted onto this armature of old and new bureaucracies is a matrix of private contractors who do much of the actual dirty work and heavy lifting for the official agencies. These private contractors are hugely overpaid (by taxpayers) and are subject to little oversight outside the agencies who hire them — who, in turn, have a keen interest in concealing any misbehavior perpetrated by their private contractors. Outside of that ring of techies, hit men, and errand boys is an asteroid belt of domestic spying infrastructure based in the internet, featuring companies that, willingly or not, funnel information about the myriad activities of individual citizens to the government. These include online retailers, Google and other search engines, banks, credit card companies, health care orgs, phone companies, universities, etc. Then, of course, there is the gigantic corps of lobbyists, public relations spinners, media pimps, corporate consultants, legislative staffers, and other enablers and fixers of Deep State operations. These highly-paid parasites are the ones largely responsible for Washington becoming the third-richest ranked metro area in the nation.

This ever-growing network has been constructed right out in the open with a long lead-up after World War Two, and then an exponential ramp-up following the attacks of 9/11/01 and the paranoia entailed by it. It is surely a remarkable thing that there have been no terror acts on the grand scale in America since 9/11. The 2013 Boston marathon “pressure cooker” bombs that killed 3 people and maimed over 250 others was a way smaller op than 9/11 and relatively amateurish, and the Deep State did not prevent the Chechen Tsarnaev brothers from pulling it off despite the fact that the elder brother, Tamerlan, had been on an FBI watch list for two years prior to the bombing. The Fort Hood massacre of 2009 (13 fatalities) was perpetrated by, of all things, an army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan. You’d think the army would have been onto this fellow… he being right under its nose… but what better illustration of basic institutional failure?

There has been surprisingly little else. Perhaps that is due to the diligent work of these bureaucracies. But I find it hard to believe that they had much to do with the absence of terror acts against the countless “soft targets” across the nation. For instance, a small squad of half a dozen jihadists might have entered any one of a thousand big regional shopping malls across America with enough ordnance in a duffle bag to kill a few hundred people. It hasn’t happened, but can anyone say it’s because the National Security apparatus prevented it? I’ve been in many malls the past thirteen years and none of them had any security screening at their doors whatsoever. Anyone could stroll in with an Uzi tucked under his London Fog and blast away. Yet, the known attempted dastardly deeds that were prevented by the Deep State — the 2010 Times Square car bomber, the airplane underwear bomber — you can count on the fingers of one hand.  Of course, the airplane shoe bomber wasn’t stopped until the very moment he tried (and failed) to light his Nikes. Lucky he was a klutz.

In any case, the monumental new combined security apparatus has been given carte blanche to elaborate itself, to grow ever more branches and buds so that it is now a kind of creeping, suffocating, parasitical vine entombing the edifice of the Republic behind a scrim of toxic administrative overgrowth. The remarkable thing all along has been the lack of protest from just about any quarter of the American polity, either the citizens themselves or their elected representatives. Now and again an elderly airline passenger will complain about being groped by an ardent TSA officer, but on the whole the broad public does not seem to care about having its privacy stripped away, even after Edward Snowden burst on the scene with his revelations of what should have been perfectly obvious to anyone who thought about it for half a minute — namely, that government agents could not possibly resist the temptation to harvest those bounteous crops of data accumulating in all the humming server farms all over the country.

It was really only a few weeks ago when one politician did offer a few yelps of objection. That would be Senator Diane Feinstein who, as chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, was investigating torture carried out by the CIA following 9/11 and in the wars engendered by it. The CIA response to the committee’s requests for information was a 6.2 million-page data-dump of un-collated, un-indexed memos and cables — obviously designed to confound, impede, and delay any discovery of misconduct. On a number of occasions both the CIA and White House staff lied to the committee about the handling of documents, which, of course, distracted attention from the substance of what was in the documents: evidence of programmatic torture. It would be fair to say that CIA personnel jerked the committee around in every way possible to avoid providing coherent answers to straightforward questions and requests. CIA Director John Brennan repeatedly stonewalled Senator Feinstein’s letters, simply refusing to reply. As the tussle heated up, the CIA hacked the Senate committee staff’s computers. Then they went a step further and referred senate committee staffers to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution in mishandling secret documents. The CIA’s general counsel who made the referral was, in fact, a lawyer in the CIA’s counter-terrorism unit when the alleged tortures took place  — meaning, he had approved them — and his name appeared 1,600 times in the Senate committee’s report.

Senator Feinstein, formerly a dogged supporter of the CIA and its redundant cousin agencies, finally lost it. She held a press conference and pretty much denounced the whole wicked business as an attempt to intimidate the committee and obstruct constitutional oversight of the CIA’s activities.

Who Is Watching The Watchmen?

The affair raises very troubling questions, chiefly: has this vast “security” apparatus become by stealth a fourth branch of the United States Government?  Does it think itself to be more equal than the other branches? Does its existence undermine the rule of law in this nation? And what do we ordinary citizens of this republic do about it? (Assuming we are still a republic.) We’ll touch on these matters in Part 2: How To Oppose The Deep State

Jews are the exception. Their ethnic networking is a racial feature. Genetic studies show a high similarity (70%) between Jews all over the planet. Look at the way they dominate us, in our own countries, in finance, politics, the media. There is even a Jew in charge of the US Global Nuclear Strike Force.

J.H. Kunstler: Theater Major at SUNY Brockport, father in the diamond trade.

He was a regular for years at The Oil Drum before it closed for lack of content after the Baaken cranked up.

Nothing ad hominem intended but he always struck me as a strange and acerbic little word-smith.

I agree - guys like Kunstler get me because they act like all of life's events were random, with language like this:

"Of course, the airplane shoe bomber wasn’t stopped until the very moment he tried (and failed) to light his Nikes. Lucky he was a klutz."

I guess it was just an accident that this guy was guided onto a plane in order to terrify Americans and justify the TSA's existence.

 

"Has this vast 'security' apparatus become by stealth a fourth branch of the United States Government?"

Uh oh!  Sounds like a conspiracy!  But there can't be any masterminds behind the organization of the security apparatus he described.  Everything probably just happened to fall into place on its own.

The Deep State is so powerful that there is no need for it to try and hide, after all, if you can't fight city hall, imagine what the deep state is like to fight. Whenever taxpayers are forced to fund a Government Deep State apparatus to the tune of around 1.25 trillion dollars a year, the combined military and security budgets, then that buys a hell of a lot of real power. If you look at what Israel is so proud of calling "Facts on the Ground", you can see that the Deep State is the Lawn Mower and our asses are grass. The power and the wealth has gone to their heads, they have come to view themselves as all powerful and untouchable. The present nightmare in Ukraine, was planned and funded by America's Deep State, in the belief that their power is unlimited.

To the Deep State above, I want to add two other major Deep State players, one is a major tool, "The Corporate Media" the other is a major power player and Deep State Regular "Israel and AIPAC". The Deep State has armed Israel with many hundreds of nuclear weapons and built them s delivery systems, so that Israel alone is a planet killer on it's own, with every major city in Euroasia and the middle east targeted 24/7. Without the American Deep State, a tiny nation of a few million would not be one of earth's most powerful nuclear weapons powers, and ready and capable of ending life on over half the earth in a single afternoon.

Check my past comments and you will see who I think is behind the throne. I do not think it is the Jews. There is another country, comprised of 835 people according to their website, that I think is the true puppet master behind the NWO. If you don't believe me, ask yourself why it is not uncommon to find politicians that point a finger at AIPAC but ZERO who will diss the little country with 835 citizens?

Are you talking about the Vatican city? The population is about 920.Jews have been infiltrating the Catholic Church since its inception. Have a look at this article in the Jewish Forward on Jews who changed the church (got them to dump warnings about Jews). Sure, this guy converted but supported Israel his entire life. Right..

http://forward.com/articles/159955/converts-who-changed-the-church/?p=all

You forgot the smallest country which is arguably SMOM - population 3.

There is no hiding the fact that Jews control our countries and farm us. John Kerry (Jewish) instructs Victoria Nuland (Jewish) to install a Jewish head of state in Ukraine who promptly installs three Jewish oligarchs as regional Governors. Jewish people are a tiny fraction of the population. What are the odds? Even the public are starting to notice that whever our freedoms are taken away some Berg or Stein is always behind it. If we don't remove these people from power they will destroy us.

Jews are the problem. No heavy lifting needed. Jews advocate open borders for white nations, limitations on freedom of speech to accomidate the invaders, gun control. In Israel black Jews are given contraception without their knowledge, African refugees are jailed, then deported, it is illegal for non-Jews to marry Jews.

  Hmmm...Where to begin? Kunstler spends a great deal describing symptoms while completely ignoring the illness. The current government excesses are merely a reflection of the direction society is being conditioned into. Academia sets direction, banking finances it and the media sells it to the public. There is a common denominator within those three groups which has always worked for it's own interests and excluded others not in their group. That group is even over represented in the government that ultimately applies the violence to force that direction where needed.

  There is a reason the public is not too concerned about living in a decent society. Freedom, peace, sound money, limited government and all the other constructs that result in a decent society are totally contrary to the interests of that group.

  Who are they, that "group". Put on your thinking cap and figure it out but I will leave you with a hint...Most are not even American citizens.

  Somehow I don't ever see Kunstler going there.

Kunstler is either a Zionist hack or is a very interesting case study in how the conscious mind (of the writer) does not recognize how it is directed by the unconscious mind. I am yet to decide which of the two it is. Case in point is his (of course mostly well written and engaging) novel "World Made by Hand".

SPOILER ALERT -- If you have not read this book, I am about to give away key plot points.

As in most novels, this book has two faces, one is the supeficial story line and the other is the ideological burden. In this case it is the burden of its sado-masochistic, Zionist supremacist fantasies. Let me explain.

The story takes place around a small town in NE USA, post some not clearly identified Armgeddon involving possibly nuclear weapons but certainly Peak Oil. The chief protagonist is "Robert", a fifty-ish childless widower and a man of no particular power in the community. Before Aramgeddon he was a paper-pusher but now he is the town Carpenter (the insinuation is clear enough).

Robert's best friend (in a way) is the local protestant cleric, a weak man of weak faith who struggles even to go through the motions of belief. Robert is screwing this cleric's wife, something to which the cleric is apparently compliant. (Takeawy: Robert is virile, more virile than the cuckold cleric).

As the novel begins, a new force arrives in town (I forget what Kunstler called it...hmm, let's just call it NJ, "New Jerusalem). This force is a communiity of strong, forceful, and armed evangelical Christians, with plenty of members who are former soldiers back fom what the novel calls "The Holy Land". These evengelicals are led by a clever, iron-steel pastor. They set up just outside the town. Initially they appear to be a threat to the status quo in the town.

The final important ideological feature of the book is the existence on another side of this town of a community of white trash (of course) types who make their existence by scavenging (Palestinian-like) on the old trash heaps. These low-lifes are presented as a constant threat to the town.   

Like any good middle-brow novel, the book is full of pacily-presented incidents but the sketch of main characters and storylines provides enough background for an understanding of the zionist supremacist fantasy themes. Now I skip quickly through the main action.

* Friend of Robert, a returned soldier  is killed by trailer trash. Leaves behind pretty/buxom widow.
* Robert continues to screw cleric's wife.
* Robert becomes new mayor of town
* Robert bonds with armed evangelicals. They attack and defeat trailer trash.

The key to identifying this book as a Zionist fantasy is found about 3/4 into the book where, in a bizarre and entirel out-of-place scene, the wife of the leader of the evangelicals is revealed for the first time. She is depicted as an enormously fat woman who does nothing but reside abed while consumely an endless stream of cream cakes. I am not joking.

It seems that this creature (she must be depicted as a creature as she is not sexually available to Robert/Kunstler) is blessed with psychic powers.

This is how, 3/4 of the way through the novel, and a propos of absolutely nothing story-related, she announces to Robert that she has divined that he is Jewish! He concedes this is so.

As i have said, this is the keystone information for the entire book. All that was formerly random events can now be seen as part of a coherent ideological tapestry as it explains

> the presentation of Robert (why not a Jewish name?) as Carpenter (i.e., Saviour of the community and its only viable leader)

> the dichotomous presentation of Christian religions as either weak cuckolds or as usefuls militants to be turned agains the enemeies of Jerusalem) but in either case their existence is interpreted not on their own terms but ONLY in terms of their functionality for the Jew

>Robert's remarkable virility relative the non-existent or disfunctional sexuality of every other male in the book, typically with the wives of Christians (the well-known Jewish fantasy of every christyian woman a shiksa), and ultimately where Kunstler Robert does the beautiful wife of the fallen soldier the great favor of access to his heroic bed.

But I leave it there. As I suggested in the beginning, Kunstler can at first seem like a funny, mixed up case, however, (tho I agree with him on Peak Oil/Peak Debt) his fundamental ideological role seems very consistently to be to act as an agent of the Frankfurt School, putting into action what I call its "Walls of Jericho" strategy, a childish but effective strategy of incessant wailing and complaint and blame-shifting intended to make the conscious/adult mind give in to its bullying demands.

In that capacity, it seems that Kunstler's role is the same as that of the MSM and Hollywood, to take the battle to the Id of white Christian (male) family/culture and at every opportunity to delegitimize it, demoralize it, marginalize it and BLAME it. You can see this everywhere. It has been the dominant media/political culture for decades now. That is always the ideological purpose of his writing, and is present in everything he writes. It is his one consistent theme despite the fact that it is presented to us superficially wrapped in the narrative of Peak Oil.

Kuntsler's recurring 'argument' against a larger conspiracy -- say, like 9/11 -- is his own incredulity.

Incredulity is not an argument.

Evidence makes arguments.

To your point, the 'NWO' isn't coming... it's here. 

That said, I never use "NWO" when speaking of these topics as the hyperbole distracts from what can actually be pieced together with some careful reading and dilligent research.

Well said, Ignatius. As much as I generally enjoy his writing, Kunstler is obsessed with this "incompetence" meme, which is utter nonsense. The NSA, for instance, has created the means to eavesdrop on every digital communication on the planet... sounds like there are some frighteningly competent people running THAT show.

Given what we now know of the NSA's capabilities, pulling off a simple act of industrial sabotage like 9/11 would have been chlld's play. And the old "conspirators can't keep a secret" idea completely misses the point. 9/11 was a brutal, naked exercise of power. Broadcasting this message to the rest of the world – particularly to foreign leaders and intelligence services, many of whom clearly understood the real game afoot – was part of the point.

Kunstler is NOT cionfused, insane or obsessed with this "incompetence" meme.  He knows exactly what he's doing and why.  This lies primarily in maintaining the Frankfurt School's agenda while the  "incompetence" meme is used to redirect attention away from how his tribe has systematically taken over all major western institutions.

Reposting, seems more fitting on this thread.

I highly recommend this article from Harvard National Security Journal:

"National Security and Double Government" - Michael J. Glennon

http://harvardnsj.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Glennon-Final.pdf

Abstract
National security policy in the United States has remained largely constant
from the Bush Administration to the Obama Administration. This continuity
can be explained by the “double government” theory of 19th-century
scholar of the English Constitution Walter Bagehot. As applied to the
United States, Bagehot’s theory suggests that U.S. national security policy
is defined by the network of executive officials who manage the
departments and agencies responsible for protecting U.S. national security
and who, responding to structural incentives embedded in the U.S. political
system, operate largely removed from public view and from constitutional
constraints. The public believes that the constitutionally-established
institutions control national security policy, but that view is mistaken.
Judicial review is negligible; congressional oversight is dysfunctional; and
presidential control is nominal. Absent a more informed and engaged
electorate, little possibility exists for restoring accountability in the
formulation and execution of national security policy.

I would add that this double government goes beyond national security to most aspects of the federal state.  The bureaucracy is so large and entrenched that no change in political leadership really can steer the ship meaningfully in a different direction.  The political leadership can tweak an agency here or there, a program here or there or use the agencies to attack members of the opposite party, but the essence of the machine runs on its own.

When people share a common agenda, they do not require a complicated organization to advance their goals. This has always been the strength in the radical muslim movement. they share a common agenda and approach to achieving success. We have been indoctrinating people for decades in our public schools and colleges for this very purpose. They don't need dark, smoke filled rooms with top secret protections. They are doing it in front of us. They will lie to us claiming they are not and when caught, simply shrug and say.... so? Fundamentally changing America. Some will be pleased and for the rest...so?

Conspiracy theories are a great comfort to people under attack. Especially when the 'enemy' is so seemingly huge and unbeatable. It makes people feel better to think that the whole thing is so diabolical, so well-planned by experts, that they can't possibly be expected to DO anything about it, it's just too big.

But it always turns out that the 'enemy' is just as stupid and inept as we are. Blessed with better luck perhaps, but hardly the unbeatable scourge we imagined. Acknowledging that of course requires us to admit we we allowed these morons to get the better of us in the first place. The conspiracy theory becomes a comforting refuge.

Then there are Cass Sunsteins ASSHOLES that work in INDIA that just want to make good people give up and quit asking questions, these kind of trolls drive good people NUTS.

Then there are the conspiracy theory trolls that talk shit about Grey's ruling the world, and that US-MIL has secret alien tech,... these are BULLSHIT trolls.

Then there are the BOT's SOFTWARE that goes to a site, and parrots what you say, ... they too are designed to make people nut's.

But in generality

if you see someone WRITE VERY-VERY WELL, you have to ask yourself, why is this person here on a FORUM for idiots? This person writes well enough to be spokesperson for bathhouse, ... why is he here?

Kunstler doesn't believe in conspiracy theories because people are inept, but he believes in the conspiracy theory that 19 Muslim flunkies and a Saudi caveman overcame the U.S. military on 9-11.  Got it.

"I like to say that I’m allergic to conspiracy theories because human beings are generally too inept to carry out schemes at the grand scale, as well as being poor secret-keepers..."

While the rest of us use words like ZIO-NEO-CON,
or ZIONISM to discuss the PTB, KUNSTLERS prefer's meaningless code-words like "DEEP STATE".

WHY?

One reason of course is that KUNSTLER see's him self as voice of reason in the ALTERNATIVE MEDIA FOREST
for AIPAC. Kunstlers is a lot of things, but his
TRIBAL loyalty is unmatched in the world of DIS-INFO.

KUNSTLER is rather late the 'DEEP STATE' has been
PRIVATIZED and sold to private CONTRACTORS, there names are INMARSAT (Satellite) and SERCO GROUP (tagging humans)
, both are UK companys.

So today we can honestly say that the USA powerless to even over-see the 'Deep State' as H.W. Bush setup all the company's running the USA when he was CIA director back in the early 1980's.

>>>

Lastly, I'm one of the few that do believe 19 teenage boyz hijacked the 911 planes, with boxcutters, and I believe the conspiracy mythology is promoted by AIPAC OPPOSITION
to convince the hairlips that such a thing is not possible, as if 19 Saudi boy's could do such a thing, imagine what 19 ameriKKKan boy's could do?

>>>

Follow SERCO-HONEYWELL, Follow INMARSAT and Follow H.W.BUSH and team CHENEY (HALIBURTON). Most of the DEEP-STATE is now being ran from the UK. Serco-Group is most interesting, they want to put a KL-02 ( freescale chip ) into the body of every citizen in Europe, and track them with INMARSAT satellites, and later the chip is to be put in every world citizen. SERCO stole the MH-370 to get this technology.

And no Arab hijacker, ever in a million years, ever flew into the World Trade Center.  And if you got 30 minutes I'll tell you exactly why he couldn't do it the first time.  Now, I'd have trouble doing it the first time. 

Rob Balsamo:  Yeah, same here.

John Lear:  Maybe if I had a couple tries to line up a few building, I could have done it.  But certainly not the first time and certainly not at 500 or 600 miles an hour.

Rob Balsamo:  Yeah, as a matter of fact, one of our members, he was a 737 Check Airman.  He was in the sim at the time on September 11 and right after it happened they tried to duplicate it in the simulator and they said they couldn't do it.  They were trying to hit the Towers and they couldn't do it. ...

John Lear:  Yeah, it would be an amazing feat of airmanship...

I have read that it was likely the planes were remotely controlled and there wasn't anyone aboard.  With the perspective from that experienced pilot, that would also make sense to me that the route would have to be planned well in advance.

What gets me is that I'm sure the technology existed even in 2001 to detect the instant the planes diverted from their original course, so alerts should have been raised well ahead of time.

911/MH-370 I Said I believe that 19 boys hijacked the airplanes, ... I never suggested they did it on their own, no doubt in my mind that ISRAEL/SAUDI/USA NEO-ZIO-CON was behind the financing of the 19 boys. I'm just talking about twin-towers, ...

the other stuff is bullshit, because its all talk, as we never actually saw the plane hit the pentagon live, nor the crash in PA

. I'm of the the opinion, that the plane tanks were shot, and the

plane crashed in PA for lack of fuel, you'll notice from post photo's there is NO burning, no black, It would have been easy for the air-force to hit the tanks with non-incindiary rounds, then the plane would crash when it ran out of fuel. Building 7,

I don't care nor know shit.

Pentagon, we don't know shit, as that is/was a controlled area.

All I know is that the twin towers were hit by planes, and I saw it with my own eyes live.

>>> I'm a pilot, so I have lots of hours on SIM, and REAL, and I'll tell you this, that flying a 747 on SIM, compared to a small plane is like flying a bus. I don't see any problem hitting a building that's wider than a runway.

>>>

Let's get back to MH-370 that is more topical, I'm very concerned about the NWO plans that SERCO-GROUP has to put a KL-02 into every human being on the planet to be tracked by INMARSAT satellites,

If we don't blow this thing PUBLIC, then we be fucked.

SERCO GROUP(UK-LTD) run's prisons in Austrailia, they have Austrailia by the balls. The Companys including INMARSAT are all spawn of HW-BUSH, the same BUSH family that brought HITLER to power. Now the PUG's want BUSH to be president again.

Freescale was going to send the KL-02 technology to CHINA, and the ZIO-NEO-CON's stole the plane, to get the FREESCALE engineers.

SERCO GROUP has already implanted CHIPS in many people in the UK, and now they want to do ALL of EUROPE and the USA.

In Summary they want to shove a SMART-PHONE up your ass that's always ON, and always talking to MOM(NSA).

Different players have different goals.

Some want resources, some want financial control, some want political control, some merely want new markets while others want continual instability.

All want profits or power.

When their interests align they will cooperate together and when they conflict the knives come out and they will stab each other in the back to advance their agenda.

Perfect. Nice Read

However...

 

You perfectly describe multiple conspiracies. Perhaps if you washed off the taint placed on the word recently, you'd agree. These, AND MANY MORE, are conspriacy. Get on the team, Bubba, are you afraid they're going to off you? Shit or get off the pot. A conspiracy is an agreement with an element of secrecy, sort of like a corporate plan, or a plan to innundate the people with lies on TV.

I like your writing.

The only thing I got out of this Kunstler article was sheer amazement that he left out his vile hatred for the South.

Anyone with even a high school knowledge of PHYSICS should understand that the near free-fall collapses ot WTC towers 1, 2 and 7 were IMPOSSIBLE. The steel struture beneath points of the plane impacts (for WTC 1 nd 2) would have DECELERATED and COMPLETELY STOPPED after severl stories simply because there was insufficient potential kinetic energy within the above structure. Explosives placed within the steel structure BELOW the impact points are the SOLE explanation. As for WTC Building 7, the collapse of ANY floors due to fire was totally impossible, as was its near free-fall rate of collapse. This fact was evident to me the first time I saw the collapses.

BTW: One need NOT even consider that military-grade nano-thermite (available ONLY to the U.S. military) was found in ALL of the dust samples from near the collapse sites. Plus, that NO plane wreckage was found at the Pentagon and Pennsylvania crask sites CONFIRMS that NO planes hit those sites. And contrary to the official claims, the planes' wheels and engines (made from titanium-alloy steel) simply can NOT "vaporize". Plus, if the fusilage of the plane caused the 20 foot diameter hole in the Pentagon wall, WHERE are to 2 holes that the engines would have created?

Anyone who believes the government's official fairy-tale is an IDIOT.

The "black budget" last year was a massive 52 billion dollars. This is the money used in "secret" spy operations, and it is enough to send shivers down the back of those that have read about the totalitarian society of Oceania described in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

In Orwell's novel, all citizens of Oceania are monitored by cameras and are fed fabricated news stories by the government. Throw into the mix some corruption and a bit of crony capitalism and things get ugly. More on this subject in the article below.

"The "black budget" last year was a massive 52 billion dollars."

That's just the "known" and the "known unknown" Black Budget. What about the "unknown" Black Budget?

You are so right!  The papacy is behind all sorts of America's problems, especially the rapid fading of our liberties.  Presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson understood the dangers the Vatican posed.  Our modern leaders are deceived, consulting with the Vatican weekly and it is to our detriment.  It is leading to a union of church and state on many levels, the demise of our religous liberties and eventually to the attempted genocide of a tiny minority who refuses to surrender liberty of conscience, choosing rather to obey God than men. 

All one has to do is look at papal history.  Millions upon millions were slaughtered during the Dark Ages for their non-conformity to papal dogma.  What American leaders, modern protestantism in their blind ecumenical fervor, do not understand is that the character of the papacy is unchanged.  Read Vatican inisder Malichi Martin, or better yet, read the last eight chapters of "The Great Controversy."

"It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country — the United States — are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars in Europe." - General Marquis De Layfayette

Okay, I am going to write the contrarian post, albeit a bit late. I actually agree with most of the article. I find the deep conspiracy stuff to be a waste of time. I am not into the big invisible conspiracies from any group you want to name. I do believe in conspiracies of interests in the simple sense that farmers will try to get subsidies for as long as government cares to hand them out. I also believe that banks and financial houses will tap into money, public or private anyway they can. If the government helps them, they will do it. I believe welfare recipients will stay on the dole as long as they get to sleep late and avoid the challenges of a real job and vote leftist every once in awhile.

Apart from that the part that I agree with is in fact that the whole damned problem is right in front of your/our faces. You don't really have to worry about the man behind the curtain so much, even if he is there.

The security-permission-centrally planned state is right smack in our faces and we watch it advance every year. The Beast is the government power that grows and intrudes into our lives at every level. Name anything in America or any part of the "civilized" world you can do without government permission. You cannot drive, buy, sell, start a business, run a lemonade stand, protest, cut hair, or even cross the street...leave your seatbelt off, spank your kid in public, or catch a fish without the permission of the omniscient omnipresent government. Each year they add ten thousand pages of new rules. Just trying to figure out what the government take of your wealth is requires 72.000 pages of tax codes...just for the Feds.

Through the wonders of the Fed and the regulatory state the entire economy is run from fake interest rates to fake labor rates. It is less important how good Apple's new iPhone 6 is than listening to the mere inflection of Janet Yellen's voice. She can crash an entire world economy.

I think you get my general point. My answer is so simple that almost no one outside of libertarians and true anarchists gets it. Disempower the State, the government, the regulators, the central planners, the security state. It will not matter what you think about the Jews, Zionists, Illumanti, NWO, John Birch society or anyone else. If they exist as posited they cannot execute their evil genius plans without state power. It is not Walmart that is raising your property taxes, setting speed traps and cameras, or listening to your phone with the NSA. Walmart does not force you to register your car or get a passport. It is the government that loves you and protects you the way a beef rancher watches our for his livestock...and future ribeyes.

However, my guess is as long as the government promises to give away other peoples stuff and protect Charleston from invasion by Al Qaeda we, collectively will keep tolerating the unimpeded growth of government, its rules and its tentacles until it strangles us. It will happen right in front of us and the groundwork is laid...but that is another post.

Looking at this map, I wonder which of the remaining Ukraine forces are likely to defect or turn on the "pro-western ukraine coup" forces? I see 1st Spetsnaz and 8th Spetsnaz in blue. We all know Spetsnaz is Russian special forces. Are these "blue" spetsnaz guys really just pro-western ukrain coup Alpha agents and not really Spetsnaz? Interesting...
