How America's Deep State Operates To Control The Message

Authored by Philip Giraldi via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

It is not possible to overstate the power of certain constituencies and corporate lobbies in the United States.

These pressure groups, joined by powerful government agencies, many of which have secret agendas that focus on national security, constitute what is increasingly being recognized as “Deep State America.” Deep State is the widespread belief that there exists in many countries an entrenched and largely hidden infrastructure that really controls the national narrative and runs things. It explains why, for example, a country like the United States is perpetually at war even though the wars have been disastrous failures ever since Korea and have not made the nation more secure.

To be sure, certain constituencies have benefitted from global instability and conflict, to include defense industries, big government in general, and the national security state. They all work together and hand-in-hand with the corporate media to sustain the narrative that the United States is perpetually under threat, even though it is not.

The recent exchanges over the Russia-US relationship exhibit perfectly how the Deep State operates to control the message. American President Donald Trump briefly met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Vietnam. Putin reportedly told Trump that Russia “absolutely had not meddled” in the 2016 US election and Trump then told reporters that he believed the Russian leader meant what he said, “which is good.” As détente with Russia is not considered desirable by the Deep State, there was an immediate explosion of a contrary narrative, namely that Trump believes a Russian “enemy” and does not trust what his own intelligence agencies have told him about 2016 because he is being "played" by Putin.

This story was repeated both on television news and in all the mainstream newspapers without exception, eventually forcing Trump to recant and say that he does believe in US intelligence.

Not a single major media outlet in the US reported that it just might be possible that Putin was telling the truth and that the intelligence community, which has been wrong many times over the past twenty years, might have to look again at what it considers to be evidence. No journalist had the courage to point out that the claims of the Washington national security team have been remarkably devoid of anything credible to support the conclusions about what the Russian government might or might not have been up to. That is what a good journalist is supposed to do and it has nothing to do with whether or not one admires or loathes either Putin or Trump.

That the relationship between Moscow and Washington should be regarded as important given the capability of either country to incinerate the planet would appear to be a given, but the Washington-New York Establishment, which is euphemism for Deep State, is actually more concerned with maintaining its own power by marginalizing Donald Trump and maintaining the perception that Vladimir Putin is the enemy head of state of a Russia that is out to cripple American democracy.

Beyond twisting narratives, Russiagate is also producing potentially dangerous collateral damage to free speech, as one of the objectives of those in the Deep State is to rein in the current internet driven relatively free access to information. In its most recent manifestations, an anonymous group produced a phony list of 200 websites that were “guilty” of serving up Russian propaganda, a George Soros funded think tank identified thousands of individuals who are alleged to be “useful idiots” for Moscow, and legitimate Russian media outlets will be required to register as foreign agents.

Driven by Russophobia over the 2016 election, a group of leading social media corporations including Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter have been experimenting with ways to self-censor their product to keep out foreign generated or “hate” content.

They even have a label for it: "cyberhate". Congress is also toying with legislation that will make certain viewpoints unacceptable or even illegal, including a so-called Anti-Semitism Awareness Act that would potentially penalize anyone who criticizes Israel and could serve as a model for banning other undesirable speech. “Defamatory speech” could even eventually include any criticism of the government or political leaders, as is now the case in Turkey, which is the country where the “Deep State” was invented.

Fear is the order of the day.Be very, very afraid of that militarily-weak nation on the other side of the world, who poses no legitimate and imminent threat to the US.Hegemonic Empire always attacks those nations who are perceived to be weaker than the Empire.It represents the death knell of Empire, and is typically the final stage of economic and political collapse.

And like many Historical Explanations, leads to a fresh question.  To wit:Is there, on record, any exodus out of Old Turkey into Northern Europe, up around Kiev?  Asking because tracing the history and lineage of the "Khazarian Empire" and its now-scatterd, highly effective, infandously crimihnal and 100% NON-HEBREW, NON-SEMITIC peoples has proved exceptionally challenging, even (maybe especialy) online.Looking for the Right Dots to connect on that timeline.  So hadda' ask.  And that is all.  0{;-\o[

Opinion:  To the Old hand at this Culture War, ~yawn~ is right.  But we are now being joined by tens, building to hundreds of thousands of others (especially sleepy-eyed 'Mercan Normal Folk) who are just now awakening to a certain aroma in the atmosphere.  An unmistakable aroma of something both brown and potent - but it ain't coffee.Fact:  University research indicates that we MUST have TEN PERCENT of the US population AWAKE and ON THEIR FEET, [opinion: and right quick too], if our Constitutional system of Republican Grassroots ruleership is to survive to be restored at all.  Else we all shall be toast on Someone Else's ah, tribal breakfast plate.  So let's *encourage* the Newly Awakened, sez this Old Turtle - and provide aught but GENUINE coffee, the like of which the Learned Elder Tribal Guard would violently FORBID if ever it could.Oh wait wait I remember reading somewhere online that there is legislation in Congress now that actually DOES that, once enacted oi veh gevult woe is me and all the Rest of Us too!  Best git crackin'.  And that is all. 0{:-|o[

At long last! A 'strategic-culture' piece which goes beyond the usual obligatory and obvious agit-prop talking points,

to the world of the really... real!

“Defamatory speech” could even eventually include any criticism of the government or political leaders, as is now the case in Turkey, which is the country where the “Deep State” was invented."

Merikan exceptionalists - accustomed to 'owning' the world from their exceptionalist computer screens, would be SHOCKED to realize that the world outside their fishbowl was inventing things later transposed to their (now failed)Republic of Fear.

The TERROR STATE template which is shortly to be placed upon the prone body of Lady Liberty was tried out and refined elsewhere... outside the purview and even imaginative faculties of witless exceptionalist 'masters of the universe'... who will now suffer the consequences of failing to heed well placed warning of the exceptionally nasty fate awaiting them due to that chosen cloak of ignorance!

I hope that this thread is not completely dead yet, and that you ( at least let me know that you read my reply), as well as others read this.

The author of this article, Philip Giraldi, was fired recently for merely using the word "Jews" in an article not that of his employer.

He was a CIA officer, and is now a writer to numerous outlets.

The piece he got fired for, for using the word "Jews" instead of the usual euphemisms: "Zionosts", "Money Changers", etc., from the American Conservative Magazine (founded by Pat Buchanen who is no stranger to such "outrage"):

Here are some of his other great pieces:

He explains why he got fired:

He explains how Israel siphons off money from the US taxpayer:

Here are some of his interviews:

This man should be supported for he risked his neck for merely pointing out the inconvenient truth that we are not "allowed" to talk about. I urge all of you who have had enough of this suppression to get familiar with this author's name and to follow him and spread his pieces.

Totally agree with JS Bach. As far as I know Mr. Giraldi is Jewish, but with a huge distinction - he is NOT a Zionist. It's a welcome relief to read such worthy articles from the sane and rational world of Jews. We know they're out there and Mr. Giraldi is one of them. Thank you, thank you, Mr. Giraldi.

I could care less if he was Jewish or not (He is not he says as much in the third youtube link that I posted above). Frankly, I would hope more sane Jews would speak out against, and do some tangible things which can reverse this steadily boiling cauldron, this ultra-hypocrisy; not doing so, I am afraid, will ultimately lead to more anger, resentment, and painting all with a broad brush effect, which may eventually lead to what has been witnessed in the not so recent past.

If Zionism -- both in Isreal and its host countries along with a more representative showing in government, media, academic circles, and any other public sector jobs -- is not stopped dead in its tracks or reversed, it may ultimately encompass even those innocent -- amongst the Jews -- under the umbrella of those who have thought out this devious premeditating "solution", perhaps by design.

Don't forget to fear GOD.

All this righteous comment about what the poor Americansare enduring after 240 years of their hypocritical democracy. Did you pray to GOD that there would be none of His comeuppance? Did He tell you you're so nice He's forgiving US for Vietnam and Iraq? That's so sweet.  And that's so like our Heavenly Father.

@ Dick,

The ones crying Anti-Semitisim are the Zionist Anti-Semite’s themselves pushing The Yinion Plan.

See how that works?

The political creed of Zionism has big ears and a long trunk and I think it’s time that was pointed out. It also stampedes through our lives at every level and that needs to be said, too.

It has created a pincer-movement on the human mind by hijacking staggering amounts of political, corporate, banking and media power on one side and by using the fear of being called ‘anti-Semitic’ if you dare to state the bloody obvious.
 They have been able to do this by equating in public perception that Zionism = Jewish people. It does not. Zionism is a political creed introduced by the House of Rothschild to advance the goals of the Illuminati families that are largely controlled by the Rothschilds.
 When people think of Zionism they think of Jewish people. When they think of Israel they think of Jewish people. That’s understandable given the propaganda, but it is seriously misleading and those instant connections need to be broken if we are going to understand what’s going on here.
Zionism means Rothschild just as Israel means Rothschild. When we see the extraordinary number of Zionists in key positions around the world we are looking not at ‘manipulating Jews’, but manipulating Zionists representing the interests and demands of the Rothschilds.
Significant numbers of Jewish people are not Zionists and oppose that appalling creed while many Zionists are not Jewish. These include the Christian Zionists and Obama’s vice-president, Joe Biden, who told Israeli television ‘I’m a Zionist’.  If, as Biden rightly says, you don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist, how can it be a racial rather than a political movement? It can’t. It’s just made to appear like that to manipulate public perception because opposing Zionism then becomes opposing Jewish people as a whole and the ‘you’re a racist’ card can be played over and over.

 Far from protecting and advancing the interests of the mass of Jewish people it has often been devastating for them and caused millions to be labelled unfairly by the actions of the Zionist elite. On the Jews Against Zionism website one feature highlights how Rothschild Zionism targeted Jews who had lived for generations in Palestine side-by-side with Arabs in peace and harmony:
 ‘The religious Jews who by virtue of their faith, clearly contradicted Zionist nationalism, and who had lived peacefully with their Arab neighbors for generations, became unwillingly identified with the Zionist cause and their struggle with the Arabs.

 They requested the United Nations that Jerusalem be designated as a defacto international city. They appealed to the diplomatic corps assigned to Jerusalem — but to no avail. They were hence confronted with the choice of either becoming a part of the Zionist State, which diametrically opposed the interests of Jews as a religion, or abandoning the land of which their forefathers were the first Jewish settlers.
 Let’s get this straight. Zionism doesn’t give a damn about Jewish people. To the Rothschilds and their Zionist gofers and thugs the Jewish people as a whole are merely cattle to be used and abused as necessary – just like the rest of the human population.
The networks of the House of Rothschild were behind Hitler and the rise of the Nazi Party in the Rothschild heartland of Germany where they had changed their name from Bauer in 18th century Frankfurt and launched the dynasty that was to control global finance.
 After the war the Rothschilds used public sympathy for Jewish people targeted by the Nazis to press for a homeland in Palestine. This was the alleged reason for the founding of Zionism, but that is only part of it.

 The campaign to impose a Rothschild fiefdom in Palestine goes back at least to the earlier part of the 19th century and probably long before. It was given a massive boost with the Balfour Declaration in 1917 when the British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour declared in a letter his government’s support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

This letter was sent by Balfour, an inner-circle member of an elite secret society called the Round Table, to Baron (Walter) Rothschild who funded the Round Table.
 Today, Rothschild Illuminati fronts like the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Royal Institute of International Affairs, and others, still answer to the Round Table which string-pulls and coordinates from the shadows. This is why Zionists in government are invariably connected with these Rothschild-controlled organisations.
 The Rothschilds funded the early settlers from Europe to relocate in post-war Palestine and they also funded and armed the terrorist groups, like Irgun, which bombed and terrorised Israel into existence in 1948, a campaign which forced 800,000 Palestinians to leave the land of their birth.

Israel is simply the State of Rothschild and how appropriate that they paid for the construction of the Israeli parliament building, the Knesset, and the Israel Supreme Court. The name Rothschild means Red-shield and it originates with the red shield ‘Star of David’ symbol (not a Jewish symbol before the Rothschilds) which they displayed on their house in Frankfurt .

Personally I'm convinced Rothchild is the Jewsish head of the Jewish arm of  Masonic Order (masons had to give Jews their own Lodge or have Jewish ambition undermine the whole system)  .Rothchilds job is essentially to keep Jews directed to undermine the world (eg communism) and under control (if that possible) and to create an Illusion that 'the Jew did it' . This directs hostile behaviour away from the Masonic Order yet at the same time allows Masons then to attack 'racists' who come out of the woodwork and get angry at Jews , without being suspected .  So Rothchilds is helping the Brotherhood by using  Jewish Intellectuals  to futher the NWO by encourageing Jews to undermine states they live in with MC & PC . I'm also convinced that The Protocoles of Zion is a Masonic Illuminati document . Further more  the Illuminati deliberately release this , which is their own real program to take over the world as a strategy with these points  1. To create an anti-jewish backlash in Russia (1905 onward)  and so drive Jews to attack the Tsarist system via communism 1917-25 and 2 . To drive communist Jews to the USA and to help undermine the US constituation and the christain state . 3 . By releasing this Illuminati plan publicly and blaming it on 'the jews did it' , the Illuminati don't then have to secretly hand around the manuel and hope nobody finds out . They can just direct members that make it to the top and say 'This is our document and this is how we operate , points 1 2 & 3 . So Rothchild actually helped Zionists do the work of creating Israel but he's not a Zionist and the Zionists are a real problem for the Masons as they are fanatical racists ! Hard to know how this endgame is going to play out . Perhaps it really is that the Zionists and the Muslim Fanatics get to destroy each other , which would be a classic masonic number . Anyone who has been payinga attention over the last few years see this Masonic scam over and over again . ISIS is another classic , set up by the Masonic revolutionary arm , the CIA . Who job it is also to undermine and soften up the US for intergration into world gov (constitution must be destroyed)  . This is why the CIA deals drugs , $ , two birds with one stone . The Masonic scam it to manipulate the mob like a matador manipulates a bull . And from all dirrty work Rothchilds gets to create Israel , which is also a military wedge and an irritant  into the middle east as we see now . If you look you'll see the Rothchilds have helped build the Gigantic World Court in Jerusalem compete with Masonic pyamid on top . Note Australian Parliement also has 3 pyamids on top and is designed in the shape of an owl . Masons believe that they are the chosen ones not the Jews , one of the resons why they are so obsessed with Israel (at least their lower members are ) .

Fine. I agree with your thesis, Chupa. But you stop short of a CRUCIAL implication:If the Zionist worldview is such an effective Model in a competitive world, and if they are so successful on it...Than WTF does that say about everyone else's worldviews and organizational power? Not too mucking fuch, that's what.If you want the Competition to stop besting you, you have to best them. That starts with a superior Worldview, that is embodied in and expressed by a superior org structure. You will have to "Out-do/Out-Jew the Jew". Period.Non-Jewish and especially modern 'Christians' simply SUCK at this. They are stuck in an outdated, ineffective mode and culture that is its own demise, rooted in a fictitious man-god with hippie teachings. Not that I approve of or agree with their views and methods, but as a Darwin is and Truth seeker, my Darwin money is on the "Zio-Jews", not on the Peace, Love, Forgive... hippie claptrap of Western Christianity.(Queue the Zombies of the hippie man-god army, who can't handle the painful truth, and whose monkey/emotional brain will kick in to defend their 'turf', rather than the smart brain trying to get at Reality and Truth). [Sigh, head shake]

Would anyone care for some more Peace-Love-Joy Kool-aid(K), while you're getting corralled, robbed and screwed?Don't worry, be happy, you'll get your just reward in the "next world": the endless world of Entropy.Don't be offended, if I call you Sheep or Sheeple. Your hippie man-god called you that first. Which seems like an upgrade from being called a "fish", caught in a net."There is none so blind, as he who will not see." -an old proverb that precedes the fictional 'Nazarene'.  Fun fact: Nazareth did not exist in 0-33 AD.

You are either in the bubble or not..What it does do from my experience is wake people up that normally wouldn’t notice. Trying to put this back in a tight space will eventually work, but those getting squeezed have no reason to take it..They can’t even find cops to work in many cities and elsewhere and it’s getting worse in education, you name it..You either believe or don’t.

The kikes control the 'Deep State' and all media in the U.S.  They have controlled the 'Narrative/Meme', I call it the 'Jew Narrative/Meme', in the U.S. for 100 years.  Are people just figuring out this fact?  Oh, I forgot, you have to first awaken from your slumber in The Jew Matrix.

Yes.  It is all the Jews, or maybe it is the Russians.  The Jews blew up the Maine and started the Spanish-American war... or maybe it was the Russians.  The Jews convinced the U.S. cavalry to massacre the Sioux at Wounded Knee, or maybe it was the Russians.The Jews manipulated everyone to vote in the Bushes or maybe it was the Russians.  It was the same Jews who convinced everyone in the U.S to vote for Clinton or maybe that was the Russians too.  It is the Jews who vote for McCain every time he is elected, or maybe it is the Russians.  It is the Jews who vote for Pelosi, or maybe it is the Russians.The average U.S. citizen has the intellectual capcity of 5-year old.  It is always someone else's fault: the Jews, the Russians, whoever.  I will tell you whose fault it is.  It is the fault of people who have the mental capacity of small child.  That is whose fault it is.  So if you want someone to blame, look in the mirror.
