U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Russian collusion hoax that, after nearly 18 months (should have taken 6 mos.) leading up to the 2020 election and with smoking gun evidence in hand, has produced ZERO indictments, charges, or prosecutions of the major players of the hoax (Clinesmith was a meaningless sacrificial lamb), and Durham nor Barr have not even interviewed John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, or Hillary Clinton. Barr issued immunity to Barack Obama and Joe Biden as part of the Durham investigation – just in case. This appears to be another shadow government cover up psyop to instill false hope into patriots and President Trump to believe crimes would be punished. DOJ investigations are legally required to be completely separate from the political process, which includes the sixty-day pre-election rule, which Barr apparently used to run out the clock after over eighteen months of intense investigation.
So far only one FBI lawyer has been charged with making a false statement in Durham’s investigation. Former FBI Attorney Kevin Clinesmith plead guilty in August to one charge of making false statements 18 USC 1001 a(3) “makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry.” 38-year-old Clinemsith altered an email from CIA investigators used to request a FISA warrant and renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo reported in September that Durham would NOT release his Spygate report before the 2020 election. During an interview on his show, Rush Limbaugh advised the president that John Durham would not release his report until after the election. Trump asked, “When was this announced Rush?” He went on to say, “I think it’s terrible.” “Yeah, if that’s the case I’m very disappointed. I think it’s a terrible thing, and I’ll say it to his face,” Trump said, referring to Attorney General Barr. “I think it’s a disgrace, it’s an embarrassment,” Trump added.
After the election, Sean Davis revealed:
A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells @FDRLST: “Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.”
Founded in 1995 by Jeff Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post (for propaganda to shape public opinion) & Whole Foods, is the largest online retailer in the US. The company did not make its first quarterly profit until 2001. The ownership of the Post dovetails with Amazon’s role working with the CIA. Amazon is a monster that with the help of government exploits Americans and continues to engulf and devour its competitors. USPS, selling out small American businesses, grants Amazon special treatment by delivering its packages on Sunday and even on major holidays. If individuals make purchases from Amazon Smile, the company donates a portion of the sale to a charity of the buyer’s choice (as long as it is not a conservative group blacklisted by the SPLC) such as International Christian Concern.
In 1996, it was reincorporated in Delaware. Amazon issued its initial public offering of stock on May 15, 1997, trading under the NASDAQ stock exchange symbol AMZN, at a price of $18.00 per share ($1.50 after three stock splits in the late 1990s). It has grown to be the retail company with the largest market capitalization in the United States, while destroying thousands of community retail stores in the process.
The company has expanded from reselling goods to designing and manufacturing electronics. It started with the Amazon Kindle e-book reader in 2007 and has grown to include multifunctional Amazon Fire tablets, Fire TV and Fire Phone brand smartphones. Amazon is also a major provider of cloud computing services. In 2010, Amazon invested $175 million in LivingSocial, a local deal/coupon site. In 2013, Amazon launched the “Amazon Prime” paid membership service which provides free shipping to its members as well as free online access to movies and archived television programs. In 2014, Amazon announced that it would be partnering with Twitter, an agreement that allows individuals to make purchases using a hashtag. Also in 2014, Amazon acquired the right to administer the .buy top level domain in an auction for $4,588,888.
In 2018, Amazon announced it would raise its minimum wage to $15 dollars an hour, though this was a political stunt, as most of its workers already made over $15 an hour, and it was transitioning to replacing human labor with robots.
During the 2020 leftwing, anti-capitalist riots the Amazon warehouse in Redlands, California was burned down. Amazon placed the slogan, “Black Lives Matter” on storefronts. Amazon.com was listed as one of numerous leftist-controlled companies that have gone “woke” and now support the criminal rioters of Antifa and Black Lives Matter in the wake of the 2020 leftist riots.
Bezos is gifted with the ability to re-frame an issue and this can be seen in its effort to paint a positive image of Amazon as a good neighbor and job creator. Ripping apart this illusion is the sad truth that when Amazon creates a job one or more are lost in another part of the economy. As for being a “good neighbor,” during the COVID-19 fake pandemic lockdowns, an article appeared on Viable Opposition detailing how Amazon exploited and price gouged customers during the bulk of the lock-down. They grew massively while small businesses shut down across the world.
It is difficult to quantify all the damage Amazon has done to America as it has burrowed its way into the fabric of society. This company has exploited communities by continually telling consumers it is the answer to a “better America” while it feeds at the government teat. Only after it has wrecked communities leaving many Americans jobless and retail stores sitting as giant empty shells might short-sighted consumers finally see the airs of their way. Amazon is bad for America – it is that simple!
An example of this surfaced a while back when it was reported that Amazon would be allowed a two year trial in New York state to ship food to customers and be paid with their EBT cards. This is going to hammer Amazon’s competitors located in these areas. While nobody seemed to care this translates into grocery stores willing to locate in poorer areas losing business to a company unwilling to locate in these less desirable markets. This is a rather self-defeating in that it rewards those unwilling to commit to making the community better and damages the brick and mortar stores that will. Not only do these stores pay local real estate taxes and provide jobs for those in the community they also are forced to deal with a huge number of shoplifters.
While in the past many politicians fell over themselves to be in its shadow that trend is stalling. Because of its massive advertising budget and other ties to Amazon, we find the media often seems to be in bed with Amazon and portrays the company as both the flavor of the day and the future of commerce. This means you seldom hear anything bad about the retail behemoth in these stories put before us that are in effect free advertising. These so-called news articles are often spun to place Amazon in the most flattering light.
Over the years Amazon has employed a strategy that takes no prisoners. It even crushes merchants working on its platform by stealing their product ideas and undercutting them on prices. This is done by giving their own Amazon-branded products premium real estate on their website. Amazon has also been stepping up efforts to recruit Chinese suppliers and manufacturers directly which cuts small American merchants out of the picture. As these new Chinese players have entered the picture “an explosion” of counterfeit products and fake reviews have hit the site. This is an issue prominent in Chinese e-commerce.
For all the praise many people and politicians heap upon small business they are often quick to cut the very throat of the creator of much of our wealth and jobs.The sale of goods over the internet has a great deal of merit, but how it is carried out can have a profound effect on society. Only as local stores continue to close, our children cannot find jobs, and property values begin to wither it will become apparent we have made a deal with the devil. Amazon excels in creating illusions that fail to hold up under scrutiny. Its vision of drone delivery is an example of the kind of pop it can garner with its news blips. Because of its influence, you can count on the media to turn any news about Amazon turned into a promotional ad.
Current tax laws at the local, state, and federal level have changed little over the decades and lag far behind how business is conducted in our modern age. This feeds directly into creating an unfair advantage for Amazon which has used them as a foundation to fuel its growth. Still, even more troubling is how the company has created an environment that draws in other sellers of goods then in a predatory manner undercuts their ability to compete. When you add these actions to Amazon’s growing influence in Washington due to its strong relationship with the CIA and deep state with its CEO’s ability to drive public opinion through the Washington Post we have every reason for grave concern. Remember the proverbial saying ‘power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely. In short, this is why Amazon has become a threat to our democracy and capitalism in America.
People often claim to expound old-time values such as cherishing personal relationships with the people in their neighborhoods that they do business with. Still, it seems some consumers become almost giddy at the thought of receiving a package from an online seller mistaking it for a gift. The truth is these packages are not free. Even if they are paying the same price such goods come with a hidden cost levied against their community. That cost is lost jobs, local sales, and a lower tax base. This is why if prices are anywhere near the same it is wise to “do the right thing” and support your local merchants.
America also needs to investigate ways to level the playing field and protect the brick and mortar retailers that provide jobs and are so important to the fabric of communities. Washington has become tangled up in its own feet that it is unable to get anything done, so it is time we the people take action, that is why everyone should “boycott” anything Amazon.
Gigantic Amazon (market cap now over $1 trillion) does not pay its fair share of taxes and has used transfer pricing and tax loopholes as well as foreign domicile to skirt its full tax obligations. In 2017, Amazon reported $5.6 billion of U.S. profits and didn’t pay a dime of federal income taxes on it. It also got a $789 million windfall from Trump’s tax law to his dismay.
The problem with Amazon has to do with a government that’s helped it become a market monopoly. Two experts on community wealth building speak to Laura about why Amazon’s effort to corner the market on commerce make it a dangerous and unprecedented economic phenomenon.
Amazon operates multiple monopolies and unfairly stifles competition. It uses its incredible power to crush smaller companies and ensure they can never compete against the tech giant. It also censors conservatives and relies on Chinese child labor.
During the coronavirus epidemic, Amazon claimed it prioritized essential products on its various services. Unsurprisingly, the critical products Amazon prioritized happened to be Amazon’s own. Amazon products were advertised with faster delivery times while the quicker delivery times of third-party sellers were hidden. Bezos’ behemoth claims this was an honest mistake caused by its algorithms, but isn’t it funny this mistake benefited Amazon?
Amazon Prime is the second-largest video streaming service in the world and Amazon Fire is in fierce competition to be the number one streaming stick service in America. It’s estimated that 57 percent of the American streaming stick market is controlled by Amazon. Amazon Fire, despite being one of the largest services, blocks WarnerMedia’s HBO Max and NBCUniversal’s Peacock from its platform. According to Variety, Amazon blocks these services because they compete with Prime. This shows Amazon does not want to be solely a distributor and only wants to favor its own services.
These cases demonstrate how Amazon weaponizes its monopoly power to crush smaller competitors. A streaming platform can’t compete against Prime if it isn’t available on the most popular streaming stick service in America. Companies that sell essential goods can’t compete against Amazon when Amazon only prominently features faster delivery times for its own products.
Axios’ reporter, Ina Fried noted: The Postal Service actually added delivery on Sunday in some cities because Amazon made it necessary.
Journalist Lauren Kaori Gurley broke the story with reporting for Motherboard noting that “as a subsidiary of Amazon, the world’s biggest company, Whole Foods could easily afford to pay its hourly employees for sick days taken during the coronavirus outbreak without breaking the bank. Instead, the company has put the onus back on workers, and they’re not happy about it.”
Promotion of Sexual Exploitation
From the “Dirty Dozen” list compiled by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, which each year “exposes and calls to account groups, agencies and businesses that contribute significantly to the normalization of sexual exploitation,” the center ranked Amazon No. 1. They explained, “This list ensures that their participation and collusion with the various aspects of the sex trade becomes public knowledge and equips citizens with information and tools to hold them accountable.”
“No corporation should profit from or facilitate sexual exploitation,” said spokesman Haley Halverson.
“Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer” is “promoting material that sexualizes children and normalizes the dehumanization and sexual commodification of women,” the group said. “Items for sale on Amazon include child-like sex dolls, photography books with eroticized child nudity, pornographic magazines, and clothing items, and more. Their Kindle e-reader is riddled with sexually explicit content containing incest, babysitter, and group-sex themes.”3
Child & Slave Labor
Perhaps most disturbingly, Amazon profits from Chinese supply chain factories, which reportedly rely on forced labor. Many of these slaves are Uighurs and other persecuted minorities. A 2019 investigation revealed that Amazon’s Echo and Kindle were produced by Chinese schoolchildren working overnight. Is it honest capitalism to utilize child and slave labor to undercut American manufacturers who pay their workers a living wage?8
Sells Fake and Unsafe products
Amazon.com, which controls an estimated 40% of all U.S. e-commerce and handles more consumer searches than Google, has been found to sell counterfeit supplements including fake CBD oil although Amazon prohibits the sale of cannabidiol (CBD) products.1 A Wall Street Journal investigation found 4,152 items for sale on Amazon.com Inc. ’s site that have been declared unsafe by federal agencies, are deceptively labeled or are banned by federal regulators—items that big-box retailers’ policies would bar from their shelves. Among those items, at least 2,000 listings for toys and medications lacked warnings about health risks to children.
The Journal identified at least 157 items for sale that Amazon had said it banned, including sleeping mats the Food and Drug Administration warns can suffocate infants. The Journal commissioned tests of 10 children’s products it bought on Amazon, many promoted as “Amazon’s Choice.” Four failed tests based on federal safety standards, according to the testing company, including one with lead levels that exceeded federal limits. Of the 4,152 products the Journal identified, 46% were listed as shipping from Amazon warehouses.
Amazon’s struggle to police its site adds to the mounting evidence that America’s tech giants have lost control of their massive platforms—or decline to control them. This is emerging as among the companies’ biggest challenges.7
Amazon itself admits to use what is called, “algo curation”. It uses rankings to shape decisions to buy. Recommendation engines inform the viewer driving them to purchase. These are optimised to illicit and force engagement. On Amazon this means $$$. The shaping of curation habits by various techniques is grounded in gaming and a level of fraud. Reviews are controlled some even manufactured to give desired algorithmic outcomes. The whole system is rigged and controlled by Amazon.
They suppress rankings, rig the algorithms and suppress sales, even if they don’t outright ban a title they don’t like or agree with. One tactic that conservative authors have noted is how Amazon sells conservative books at full price, although it doesn’t affect the authors share it persuades potential buyers to look for less expensive options.
Amazon Prime censored the popular documentary “Hoaxed” in April 2020. The documentary was made by right-wing personality Mike Cernovich and criticized the mainstream media. “Hoaxed” was in Prime’s top 50 documentaries prior to its removal. It’s not a huge mystery why Bezos, who owns The Washington Post, may not want to feature a documentary that skewers the media from a right-wing perspective.
Amazon’s Twitch banned Donald Trump, the president of the United States, from its platform in June over “hateful conduct.” Twitch claimed Trump’s famous 2015 comments about illegal immigrant rapists and his remarks about “tough hombre” criminals at his June Tulsa rally constituted “hateful conduct.” This justification is ridiculous and amounts to viewpoint discrimination against millions of conservatives.
Amazon controls the publishing industry in an almost complete monopoly of the digital public square and has the power to decide — what you get to read. This is a complete infringement and denial of the First Amendment and restricts all our freedom.
It was reported in September 2017 that Amazon had deleted numerous one-star reviews of Hillary Clinton’s book What Happened.
Amazon banned several books that helped people escape homosexuality.
Banning of books:
A video in which comedian and Conservative Review commentator Steven Crowder conducts a Q&A session with Amazon‘s “Alexa” went viral over Thanksgiving weekend. His goal? To see if he could uncover any political leanings the device might have secretly built into it. As it turns out, Alexa is a bit of a social justice warrior. That part didn’t make it into the ads for the artificial personal assistant – and I doubt Amazon could expect to sell many if they did.
After asking Alexa a question about Jesus Christ, the unexpected response prompted him to ask a number of other questions, such as how many genders there are. Alexa gave a lengthy, ideologically driven response explaining why there are not two genders (yes, really). When asked about the Prophet Mohammad, Alexa gave a rapid-fire response praising Mohammad. Watch below:
t’s not enough that Amazon is on record working with the FBI with its Facial Rekogntion biometric software … no, Amazon is also spying on its customers of its home surveillance cameras called “Ring,” The Interceptreported. The home security system developed by Amazon is planning to build a database of neighborhood watchlists using facial recognition technology. Documents obtained by the Intercept revealed that the company is working with law enforcement on a system that will identify people who are considered “suspicious,” and let Ring owners know when these individuals are near their home, using the facial recognition software built into the security system’s cameras. The software will also give the Ring owner the ability to notify police or call in the suspicious activity on their own.
Amazon’s Ring for Android app is loaded with third-party trackers harvesting a “plethora” of customer data, a new investigation claims — and an Amazon engineer for the product wants it completely shut down. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has discovered that third-party tracking software within the Ring doorbell app is sending customer data to four analytics and marketing companies, including Facebook, Google, MixPanel and AppsFlyer. That data includes personally identifiable information such as names and private IP addresses.5
Amazon Bans International Sale of Seeds
Throughout human history, people have brought seed of their favorite foods — but no longer. The technocrats are now banning international sales of SEEDS on Amazon/Wish, due to the “dangerous Chinese Mystery Seeds” false flag — even as parts of the US experience seed shortages! This “Problem/Reaction/Famine” dialectic is actively being used in many areas to engineer food shortages ahead, in order to further a technocratic, transhumanist rewrite of our food system and takeover of society.
A startling new investigation has revealed that Amazon provides charitable funding to the controversial and hyper-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center through the AmazonSmile customer giving program. Yet Amazon lets the SPLC act as a gatekeeper for the program, which means SPLC denies Amazon customers the ability to give to politically conservative organizations. As a result, organizations that promote conservative ideas are cut off from funds, while Amazon allows donations to a variety of liberal organizations that include Planned Parenthood, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, and the SPLC itself, which is the 33rd largest recipient of AmazonSmile contributions.1
Since 2017, however, AmazonSmile has appointed the SPLC to control access to these funds through their propagandist “hate list,” which they have acknowledged is intended to be used to inflict economic discrimination and censorship on organizations they put on the list. It is part of the SPLC’s broader effort to stigmatize and eliminate mainstream conservative thought. Amazon barred prominent Christian legal groups such as International Christian Concern and pro-freedom Alliance Defending Freedom from participating in its Amazon Smile charitable program, which allows nonprofits to recoup a small fraction of the money their supporters spend through Amazon. ADF, which specializes in First Amendment law and has won cases at the Supreme Court, is barred from Amazon Smile on account of the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, which labeled ADF a “hate group.”
That includes the Islamic Center of Jersey City, whose imam called Jews “apes and pigs” and requested Allah’s help in killing them “down to the very last one,” according to the Anti-Defamation League. The Islamic Society of North America is able to take part in Amazon Smile, despite a 2009 federal court ruling the U.S. government has “ample evidence” of ties between the group and Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.2
Treat Employees Poorly
Shannon Allen was an injured Amazon employee paid so low, she was forced to live and sleep in her car.
Three things that we can do:
Boycott – Stop shopping on Amazon and drop your Prime account and all Amazon web services.
Like Europe, which has levied fines of over $300 million and has an anti-trust case for $1.5 billion against Amazon, the US government should commence legal action against Amazon and its devious practices.
Write your Senators and Representatives demanding hearings and action focused on Amazon and the tech tyranny. Tell them to Break It Up.

On Wednesday Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Apple’s Tim Cook testified before Congress in the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust.

Of course, the CEOs dismissed allegations that they are targeting and censoring conservative users despite ALL of the evidence to the contrary. “If ... Read More

A Ukrainian / American DNC consultant (beginning in 2004) who formerly worked for the Clinton administration. She coordinated with Ukrainian officials to discredit the Trump campaign and drive the false Trump / Russia narrative. She coordinated with Ukrainian and American journalists picked by Obama’s US Embassy in Kiev and colluded with them at the public funded Open World Leadership Center, and then bragged to the DNC about it. She also worked with convicted bomber and leftist activist Brett Kimberlin. She created an opposition file against Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort leading to the Ukraine’s release of a ‘secret ledger’ in August 2016 leading to his resignation. In June 2017, Ukrainians said the ‘secret ledger’ did not show Manafort recieved cash payments.
Alexandra’s sister, Andrea, who were both involved in the Maidan revolution, said Alexandra was running Trump / Russia research for the DNC although Alexandra would later deny it. Her other sister, Irene, works for a George Soros funded group and is part of the Atlantic Council.
Served as Deputy Attorney General in the Obama Administration throughout the period of time the Obama Department of Justice was accused of abusing the FISA process and constitutional rights of American citizens. Yates served as Acting Attorney General for the first ten days of the Trump administration. One month after Donald Trump announced his intention to seek the presidency in 2015, Yates blocked the Office of Inspector General (OIG) from having oversight of the DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD). The OIG, Michael Horowitz, requested oversight and Yates responded with a lengthy 58-page legal explanation essentially denying the request. All of the DOJ was subject to oversight, except the National Security Division. Horowitz raised concerns that his office would be required to seek the DOJ’s permission. That procedure is “inconsistent with the Inspector General Act, impairs the OIG’s independence, and fails to account for the over 20 year record of Department and FBI compliance with OIG document requests.”1
Yates was referred for criminal investigation by Congress in April 2018 for her role in signing the Carter Page FISA warrant application containing unverified and/or false information from the Clinton-Steele dossier (possible violations of 18 USC 242, 18 USC 1505 and 1515b).1
It was Yates who “flagged” General Flynn’s completely innocent call with the Russian ambassador as “highly significant” and “potentially illegal.” Investigative journalist, Paul Sperry reported that Sally Yates, with Comey’s and McCabe’s blessing used Peter Strzok’s altered 302 summary report of the interrogation of General Flynn to brief the White House counsel to pressure Flynn’s firing.
Trump could not have “obstructed” an investigation that was no longer open, Sperry continued.
In May 2017, Yates went before Congress and lied about General Michael Flynn being compromised by Russia while concealing evidence. A confidential memo written by Trump’s lawyers to Mueller also indicate that Yates lied to federal investigators about the Mike Flynn probe. Attorney Nick Short pointed out the former Deputy Attorney General’s deceit.
From the report…
On January 24, 2017, Lt. Gen. Flynn was interviewed in the White House by FBI. The FBI operatives believed Flynn provided truthful answers.
On January 26, 2017, Sally Yates met with White House Counsel Dan McGahn and told him Flynn lied.
On January 27, 2017, Sally Yates and McGahn had another meeting and Yates lied about the ongoing witch hunt against the Trump team and she threw Michael Flynn, an innocent man, under the bus.
Later the FBI told Michael Flynn he would not be charged and they were closing out his investigation. Then deep state hacks later charged him with lying to federal investigators. Sally Yates would later write a column in the Washington Post on honesty!
Crooked Sally Yates told Congress that the Logan Act was the first reason she intervened in the Flynn case — the reason FBI agents were sent to the White House to interview Flynn in the Trump administration’s early days. The Logan Act has not been prosecuted in the United States for over 200 years. She knew this. Michael Flynn was innocent.
Flynn not only reported his trip to Russia before he went, he also took training on how to act and then provided the intelligence community information upon his return on what he learned. All of this information has been kept quiet by the intelligence community which was spying on him and listening to all of his conversations anyway, so they knew they had nothing on him. That’s why they set him up… thanks to Sally Yates.
Attorney Techno_Fogpublished more information on Yates and her relationship with reporter Adam Entous who first published the Michael Flynn leak. Miss Yates could be in even more trouble if she is pegged as the leaker of classified information.
Yates initially tried to keep Trump from appointing General Flynn as the National Security Advisor by lying to President Trump that Flynn was compromised. Trump didn’t buy it.
General Flynn was lied to, set up multiple times before and after the Trump inauguration, excessively to the point of illegally unmasked, targeted, ambushed in the White House, falsely accused, threatened with his son being indicted, provided corrupt legal counsel (the same firm where corrupt Obama former AG Eric Holder works), harassed for 3 years, belittled, slandered, besmirched by the judge, harassed by the judge, and the attorneys going after him are the same attorneys who represented the corrupt Sally Yates who lied and told President Trump General Flynn lied.
Peter Dale Scott and Noam Chomsky began to use the term deep state to refer to the ‘shadow government, or the relatively small number of Washington and Wall Street player who actually control America. The term was actually coined in Turkey, and is said to be a system composed of high-level elements within the intelligence services, military, security, judiciary, and organized crime. According to Mike Lofgren, a former GOP congressional staff member and author of ‘The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government’, the deep state / shadow government is this:
“A hybrid of corporate America and the national security state, which is an ‘out of control’ and ‘unconstrained’ group of elected and unelected figures who collude to protect and serve powerful vested interests” “It’s heart lies in Washington, DC, but its tentacles reach out to Wall Street, Silicon Valley and over 400,000 contractors, private citizens who have top-secret security clearances. Like any other bureaucracy, it’s groupthink that drives the Deep State.”
“Tentacles” appropriately describes this octopus as Danny Casalaro described it. He was an investigative journalist that had been investigating the CIA stolen PROMIS software, Mena Airport and the Iran-Contra affair, and other intertwined corruption when he began getting death threats and was found ‘suicided’ soon after promising friends he would “bring back the head of the octopus“.
John Hylan’s also referred to it as such in the following quote from a speech made in 1922 while he was the sitting Mayor of New York City:.
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller–Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.
They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make cats paws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business.
These international bankers and Rockefeller–Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.
FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, gave this testimony on 6 March 1961 before the House Committee on Appropriations regarding the conspiracy: “They have infiltrated every conceivable sphere of activity: youth groups; radio, T.V. and motion picture industries; church, school, educational and cultural groups; the press; nationality minority groups and civil and political units.”
Kevin Shipp, a high level CIA whistleblower, said at a 2017 public awareness conference that “The top of the shadow government is the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency.” According to Shipp, the deep state is comprised of the military industrial complex, intelligence contractors, defense contractors, MIC lobbyist, Wall St (offshore accounts), Federal Reserve, IMF/World Bank, Treasury, Foreign lobbyists, and Central Banks.
In the shocking, explosive presentation, Shipp went on to express that there are “over 10,000 secret sites in the U.S.” that formed after 9/11. There are “1,291 secret government agencies, 1,931 large private corporations and over 4,800,000 Americans that he knows of who have a secrecy clearance, and 854,000 who have Top Secret clearance, explaining they signed their lives away bound by an agreement.
He also detailed how Congress is owned by the Military Industrial Complex through the Congressional Armed Services Committee (48 senior members of Congress) giving those members money in return for a vote on the spending bill for the military and intelligence budget. He even touched on what he called the “secret intelligence industrial complex,” which he called the center of the shadow government including the CIA, NSA, NRO, and NGA. Shipp further stated that around the “secret intelligence industrial complex” you have the big five conglomerate of intelligence contractors – Leidos Holdings, CSRA, CACI, SAIC, and Booz Allen Hamilton. He noted that the work they do is “top secret and unreported.”
The whistleblower remarked that these intelligence contractors are accountable to no one including Congress, echoing the words of Senator Daniel Inouye when he himself blew the whistle on the shadow government during the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987. At the time Inouye expressed that the “shadow government had its own funding mechanism, shadowy Navy, and Air Force freedom to pursue its own goals free from all checks and balances and free from the law itself.”
The shadow government has been spoken of by many people for many years.
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation.”—John Hylan, Mayor of New York City, 1922
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”—From the Platform of President Theodore Roosevelt’s Progressive (“Bull Moose”) Party.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”—Edward Bernays, the “father of public relations”, writing in his influential 1928 book Propaganda.
“But quite frankly there is an outside source which we refer to as the ‘deep state’ or the ‘shadow government’. There is a lot of influence by people which are actually more powerful than our government itself, our president,”. “— Ron Paul, former U.S. Representative, November 2016 (following Donald Trump presidential election win)
In 1964, at the height of the Cold War, David Wise and Thomas Ross wrote a book about the secretive machinations of the American government, entitled The Invisible Government, in which they described the “interlocking, hidden machinery that carries out the policies of the United States…”
Prouty revealed that the Secret Team is a powerful, brutally violent, treacherous, international octopus, with many tentacles of influence that extend throughout the world. It has its operatives in many countries (Americans and non-Americans too) in universities and academic institutes (scholars, professors), in intelligence agencies (spies), in military agencies (enlisted personnel and officers), in private industry (businessmen and businesswomen), in the world of finance (bankers, stock brokers, financiers), in the news media (journalists, television personalities), in publishing (book editors).
Prouty characterizes this Secret Team as the “real power structure” in our world. Understand that he is talking about a rogue, out of control, international organization that is massively funded, has access to any computer data base, has cutting edge technology, has access to any technical expertise or personnel that it needs and that is also ruthlessly violent.
It uses the government of the USA and other countries as camouflage to hide and disguise its activities. Other similar books have appeared in recent decades. Former British MI-6 agent, Dr. John Coleman, has written his own exposé of the shadowy, totalitarian power plays of European royal houses and powerful international factions allied with their interests.
In Jerome Corsi’s recent book, ‘Killing the Deep State,’ he goes into shocking detail about how this Deep State or Shadow Government secretly wields power in Washington, and why the Deep State is dangerous – capable of assassinating Trump, if efforts to impeach him or to force him to resign fail. Why? Because Trump is not part of the Deep State and wants to ‘drain the swamp’ (ie: rid Washington of its corruption).
Following the 2016 presidential election, elements of what is often called the “intelligence community” have dropped the mask. For everyday Americans unaware of the out-of-control behavior of so many secretive government bureaucracies, it was shocking to hear lawmakers and bureaucrats acknowledge that the “intelligence” apparatus was taking on Trump — and to witness the Deep State’s war against the legitimately elected president, such as the incessant leaks from inside the intelligence community. Those leaks included, of course, the now-discredited dirty dossier on Trump. But the intelligence community’s employment of unsavory tactics, supposedly to safeguard national security, has been obvious to discerning Americans for many years.
The examples are nearly endless. Disgraced General David Petraeus, who was put in charge of the CIA, is a regular Bilderberg attendee and a member of the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations, which has openly expressed its goal of undermining national sovereignty in favor of “global governance.” When he was done with his government “service,” as with many other supposed “public servants,” he was scooped up by Wall Street investment behemoth KKR. Now, he spends some of his time shilling for the end of America and the emergence of a European Union-style “North America.” His agenda and career trajectory are typical among loyal Deep State swamp creatures involved in “intelligence” and “security.” Similarly, Keith Alexander, who ran the NSA, attended Bilderberg before going on to the “private sector” to make big money with a crony cybersecurity company he founded. Another typical Deep State “intelligence” operative deeply intertwined with the Deep State behind the Deep State is Michael Hayden, who has led both the CIA and the NSA. Like Petraeus, Hayden is a member of the CFR and has attended the secretive annual Bilderberg gatherings on multiple occasions.
Award-winning journalist and war correspondent Lara Logan discussed (on XM’s Breitbart News Daily) how retired generals are either “complicit” with or waging an information warfare campaign against President Trump. Logan reminded listeners of the Russian collusion narrative, and how many officials from the Justice Department, Director of National Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, and other agencies worked together to push the idea that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Logan said many of those waging the information warfare campaign are doing so from liberal think tanks such as the Brookings Institute. She noted that retired Marine Gen. John Allen, who worked in the Obama administration as a special envoy and endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016, is heading one. Logan said many of those waging the campaign are connected with Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s McChrystal Group, which has partnered with a Democrat political action committee. She said intelligence agents she has talked to have told her that the information campaign resembles an attempt to overturn a government.
“What [intelligence sources] see is an information warfare campaign that is designed to set the stage to ensure that the election  delivers the results that they want, if they wait that long…what they’re doing is creating the problem, civil unrest, civil disturbance, in which they can be the solution.”
That the sprawling network of secrecy-obsessed spy agencies do the dirty work for the Deep State behind the Deep State appears very clear. Indeed, many of the ostensible kingpins of the “Deep State” intelligence apparatus, as well as their key enablers, are members of secret and semi-secret organizations. For example, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and National Security Agency (NSA) bosses routinely attend Bilderberg meetings. Virtually all of them have been members of the Council on Foreign Relations, and many have been involved with the Trilateral Commission. In addition, many of them have been involved with the secret societies such as Skull and Bones, as well as Bohemian Grove. George H.W. Bush, who ran the CIA before becoming president, was involved with every single one of them.
Generally, at least for several generations now, American presidents and their closest cohorts have been very close to the Deep State behind the Deep State, if not outright ranking members of it. And so, typically, the “intelligence community” and the White House are on the same page. But with Trump, that synergy between the head of the executive branch and the espionage bureaucracies he ostensibly oversees appears to have been shattered.
The bloated “intelligence community” bureaucracy, which is made up of some 16 (known) individual bureaucracies, includes the well-known CIA, the NSA, and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). It also includes many lesser-known bureaucracies burrowed into various Cabinet-level departments such as Defense, Homeland Security, Treasury, Energy, State, and Justice. Each branch of the U.S. Armed Services has an intelligence agency, too. According to an investigation by the Washington Post, there are more than 1,250 government organizations and almost 2,000 companies in 10,000 locations across America involved in the U.S. intelligence apparatus. In addition, there are reportedly almost a million “contractors,” bureaucrats, and military personnel with top-secret clearances.
Some functions of these bureaucracies, of course, are critical to national security. And many employees of the agencies are decent, patriotic Americans working hard to keep America safe. But there is a dark underbelly to the intelligence community. If left unchecked, it literally threatens liberty and self-government. And for some observers, it is the Deep State itself. Among the earliest individuals to use the term “Deep State” and apply it to the United States was Mike Lofgren, a congressional staffer with a top-secret security clearance for almost three decades, specializing in national security. The Deep State is “the state within a state,” wrote Lofgren in 2014. “The Deep State does not consist of the entire government. It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies.”
The NSA, which was exposed by multiple whistleblowers as spying on virtually everyone without a warrant, is a “core component of the Deep State,” said Lofgren, author of the 2016 book The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government. The National Security Council, currently controlled by establishment globalist H.R. McMaster, coordinates the Deep State agencies, he said. Even parts of the judiciary belong to the Deep State, Lofgren added, pointing to the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court. And Big Business giants in Silicon Valley have been “conscripted” by the Deep State into helping spy on everyone, said Lofgren. The power of this apparatus is beyond enormous. As the saying goes, knowledge is power — and the Deep State, spying on everyone all the time, has a lot of knowledge.
The Washington D. C. Deep State is a group of 8,156 appointed mangers in 75 federal agencies that control the executive bureaucracy and tell new political appointees what they can and cannot do. Yes, that’s right, the Deep State is an official government program, well-organized, comprehensive, and “in charge.”
Obama expanded the existing program of Deep State managers and appointed over 7,000 of the 8,156 bosses who are called the Senior Executive Service. Some call it the “Shadow Government”, and it is true that this federal cabal works in the shadows.
It is little known that there are many more SES appointees than any other type of political appointment. The “key bosses” in the federal government’s SES program are not only unqualified cronies, but they are also paid more than the highest government rate of G-15. They can even get bonuses, and each agency can set the salary of each SES member, which has no top range.
Even though these SES key managerial positions are paid the best, you can hardly find a single SES member’s name on any list, anywhere. That’s why they call it the DEEP State. SES is a system of controlling power through secrecy, and acting with complete impunity – and getting a big salary to boot.
The SES is not the shadow government, but just another tier of it. These unelected ‘appointees’
If there is one video you should watch on the Deep State – It’s This One! Excellently presented. Lee Stranahan, investigative journalist, explains the who, where, what, when, how and why we’re experiencing what we are today in America.
Covers the origins of the plan to oppress America, build up China, and how the Clintons factor into such a plan. It’s long but very much worth it.
The Deep State’s enormous spying powers are supposedly being used to protect the American people and their freedoms from the threat of terrorism. But American freedom is hardly protected when the target of the spying includes the American people as a whole, in contravention of the Fourth Amendment, which states that “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.”
Supposedly the intelligence apparatus is watching us for our own good. But who is watching the watchers? The intelligence community, after all, operates in secrecy, without even Congress, let along the public at large, being aware of many of their actions, which extend way beyond illegal spying to include torture in contravention of U.S. laws, assassinations without due process, and the toppling of foreign governments without a congressional declaration of war. Do such extra-constitutional actions by the Deep State-controlled intelligence apparatus really protect American security and liberty, or do they have the opposite effect? Please keep these questions in mind as we survey some examples of the Deep State’s intelligence arm in action:
• Deep State-backed jihadists — In the name of fighting communism, the “intelligence community” literally armed, funded, and trained Osama bin Laden and other jihadists in Afghanistan who later became enemies of the United States. And in the name of fighting terrorism, this practice of aiding and abetting jihadists has continued to the present day, and has even included support for terrorists led by al-Qaeda. Seriously. For example, an explosive 2012 document from the DIA exposed several stunning facts about what the Deep State was up to in Syria. For one, it shows the Deep State knew that the insurgency in Syria was being led by al-Qaeda — and that the administration was supporting that insurgency anyway. “The Salafist [extreme Islamist sect], the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [Al Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” admitted the report, dated August 12, 2012. It also admitted that “Western powers,” certainly including the Obama administration in power at the time, support that al-Qaeda-led opposition.
The memo goes on to outline a plan to create an Islamic State in Eastern Syria based on extreme fundamentalist Islamism. “There is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist [fundamentalist Islam] principality in Eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor) and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime,” the document declares. That is also exactly what happened when ISIS declared the establishment of its “caliphate” in Eastern Syria and parts of Iraq. In short, the memo offers smoking-gun proof that creating a “Salafist principality” in Eastern Syria was a policy goal of the Deep State.
• Assassination and mass murder — Islamic terrorism has been the key justification for a development that first became public under the George W. Bush administration: the deliberate assassination of individuals declared to be “militants” or “terrorists.” Murder is the correct term, because the victims have usually never even been charged with a crime, much less convicted by a jury in a court of law. There are also no current wars legally declared by Congress that might be cited to justify the assassination spree.
So extreme have the developments become that a former senior intelligence official told the Washington Post that the CIA had been turned into “one hell of a killing machine.” A former leader of the CIA and NSA was caught on video in 2014 casually bragging and making jokes in public about how the “intelligence community” murders people without charges or convictions or a declaration of war. “We kill people based on metadata,” gloated former CIA and NSA boss Hayden at the 2014 Johns Hopkins University’s Foreign Affairs Symposium. Some of the victims include U.S.-born American-citizen children such as Nawar al-Awlaki, eight, and Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, 16, who were killed in separate strikes.
It is today public knowledge that the CIA has murdered thousands of people around the world using missiles fired from drones. Between 2009 and 2015, the Obama White House estimated that 2,436 people were killed in drone strikes. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism recorded 2,753.
A new scientific study that stunningly suggests the human race sprang from a single adult couple, as the Bible records, also suggests animals appeared at the same time, also as the Bible suggests. It was a major shock to evolutionary science when a sweeping survey of the genetic code showed the human race sprang from a single adult couple, such as an Adam and Eve. The research was led by the Rockefeller University and the University of Basel, Switzerland, and shocked all involved. “This conclusion is very surprising,” … Read More
Back in 2008, a news publication called Phoenix Times News published a story mocking people who believe in so-called “chemtrails,” calling the concept of geoengineering a “strong competitor for dumbest conspiracy theory ever.” There’s simply no such thing as chemical aerosols that are blasted from airplanes, and that remain suspended in the atmosphere, we were all continually told – with a constant emphasis on the alleged “ridiculousness” of such a notion. Well, all of that mockery came to a screeching halt ten years later, as mainstream media outlets … Read More
Referring to bank cards and visa for migrants, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a public radio interview on Friday that pro-migration forces consider European institutions as a “transport agency,” because they believe migration is in Europe’s interest. Orban said this was to Hungary’s detriment. Only after the European parliamentary election will the situation change, he added. He said that whereas the European Union justified repressive measures against European citizens by citing the fight against money laundering, the European Commission “is giving anonymous bank cards to people we … Read More

To Silence Wikileaks, #HillaryClinton Proposed Drone Strike on Julian Assange — report https://t.co/S7tPrl2QCZ — WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) October 3, 2016 Julian Assange and his free-speech brainchild Wikileaks were once lauded as global heroes of public service among United States politicians and policy makers. But by 2010, four years after its inception during the President George W. Bush administration, Assange and his organization were no longer considered lovable troublemakers and mavericks. A year into President Barack Obama’s first term, Wikileaks was suddenly considered an out-of-control free-speech Frankenstein wreaking havoc on … Read More
The Millennium hotel is an unusual spot for a murder. It overlooks Grosvenor Square, and is practically next door to the heavily guarded US embassy, where, it is rumoured, the CIA has its station on the fourth floor. A statue of Franklin D Roosevelt – wearing a large cape and holding a stick – dominates the north side of the square. In 2011 another statue would appear: that of the late US president Ronald Reagan. An inscription hails Reagan’s contribution to world history and his “determined intervention to end … Read More
