The extra-constitutional order born out of the National Security Act of 1947 is when the American state finally went completely off the rails in regards to the rule of law. This is when corporations became welded to the new ‘national security state’, undermining the constitutional order so completely, the rise and entrenchment of an unaccountable shadow government was inevitable:

What few people understand within and without the USA is the composition of this dark entity. There are competing factions represented in two larger camps of neo-liberal and neo-conservative, where there is a power struggle. Both camps are criminal actors relating to there is a fusion of corporate board policy to every department of government at every level, not least intelligence agencies with actors with broad capacity to act independently of any legitimate oversight. Within this hidden framework, endless deceits and subversion play out, with each side seeking to undermine the other. A leech fastened to this sick animal is the Israeli Zionist element in the USA, AIPAC, propped up by a much larger and more powerful Christian Zionist element consisting of a messianic ‘Christian millennial’ social phenomena whose beliefs system is quite openly and honestly laid out by the apocalyptic, neo-conservative author Tim LeHay:

^ People who actually believe in this stuff are in control of the Pentagon, and also make up a disproportionate of the United States military officer corps and it is the Air Force (where the majority of the USA’s nuclear stockpiles are kept in custody) is the most thoroughly infected. These are the people with the upper hand:

This stuff isn’t touched by the left’s ‘alternative mainstream media’ and the neo-conservative outlets on the right posing as alternative media (e.g. The Daily Beast) of course will never dig into the criminality of their own players. Why doesn’t the left touch it? Probably because of several factors; 1) there is a lot of overlap between the camps, the two cooperate in crime having to do with areas of mutual interest, you can’t dig into one without stumbling across complicity of the other 2) plain old narcissism leading to a blinding denial, for instance the American left’s inability to honestly examine the relationship of Daniel Ellsberg to Edward Lansdale because it would shake the foundation of their political mythology and open other (practically religious) icons Julian Assange, Ray McGovern, Robert Parry, et al, to serious question and examination 3) leading to obvious next assumption; the American left is so thoroughly compromised by intelligence assets, witting and unwitting, they’ve been effectively castrated:

With the several preceding (named) players consistently steering people’s attention away from the real danger zones, the apocalyptic-messianic, Christian millennial neo-conservative camp has all but won. In other words, we could call the composite circumstance an upcoming, messianic ‘Armageddon 4 U’ (whether you like the facts or not)
