^ Trump’s National Security Advisor

In this author’s preceding assessment, ‘A Criminal Magic Act’, it had been proposed:

“Every Trump firing at the national security level, to now, has seen replacements consolidating the dominionist position and increased the threat of civilization ending event. If it is true Israel could not exercise impunity without support of the Americans, it is equally true these American dominionists could never have come to power without decades support of Israel via AIPAC”

It would appear this scenario has held up once more; Bibi has his preferred choice of a Christian Zionist (dominionist) replacing H.R. McMaster. McMaster wasn’t a problem for Bibi as much as for Trump; with the general’s Russia animus and refusal to back Trump in the phony matter of ‘the Russians did it’ collusion. In any case this is an even more extreme Iran hating Christian Zionist replacing an Iran hating Christian Zionist, pointing to no change at all per policy of upcoming wider war in the middle-east with Iran in focus, a longtime pet project of Netanyahu. 

How on earth Trump thinks he can back Israel attacking Iran without drawing Russia into a wider regional war, leading to World War Three, let alone pursue his oft stated desire of rapprochement with the Russians, is a question best left to the psychiatrists. Meanwhile, meet the deep state associates of the queer* John ‘nikki’s fetish’ Bolton:

Deep State: Meet The John Bolton Chapter

from wikispooks:

Le Cercle is a deep state milieu which was set up around the same time as the Bilderberg, but is smaller and more secretive. It is attended especially by idealogues including spooks, deep politicians and editors. Members promote their hawkish agenda by otherwise subverting the democratic process, possibly going as far as brokering weapons deals and setting up false flag attacks. Their warmaking is also ideological – distributing propaganda to stoke fear of communism, promoting the “war on terror” etc. [Exposed past & present members include John Bolton]

*queer |kwi(ə)r|
1 adjective
strange; odd: Le Cercle members have a queer political orientation; it follows, John Bolton is a rather queer fellow.
2 verb [ with obj. ]
spoil or ruin (an agreement, event, or situation): Bolton was brought onboard to queer the deal with Iran:

Relating to NAZIs (the video), it should be noted the founder of the CDU (Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats), that is Konrad Adenauer, was sitting together at Le Cercle with Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler’s eastern front intelligence chief, a major NAZI war criminal rescued from justice by the Central Intelligence Agency. For those interested in pursuing the Adenauer/Gehlen developments resulting in authentic NAZI influence of today’s Germany in relation to intelligence agency crimes, have a read HERE

Among the Americans, beyond former financiers like Volker, and murderous criminal creeps Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger & Richard Armitage, also noted is the membership of CIA criminal extraordinary Ted Shackley, as well, two former CIA directors, William Colby & William Casey, and a former head of the FBI, Louis Freeh.


March of the Tickle Dicks

Raphael’s Paradox


A former Special Forces Sergeant of Operations and Intelligence, Ronald Thomas West is a retired paralegal/investigator (living in exile) whose work focus had been anti-corruption and human rights. Ronald is published in International Law as a layman (The Mueller-Wilson Report, co-authored with Dr Mark D Cole) and has been adjunct professor of American Constitutional Law at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany (for English credit, summer semester 2008.) Ronald’s formal educational background is primarily social psychology. His therapeutic device is satire

Truth is seldom pure and never simple -Oscar Wilde

What never ceases to amaze is the flat-out stupidity of the White identity groups rank and file. Consider Germany, where the real Nazis keep their identity concealed and rise to the very top of the pyramid (governance) all-the-while making a great (and believed) pretense of outrage at anyone from the street who dare make a bit of a nostalgic show for German fascism. Meanwhile, German chauvinism has been dominating Europe and economically bleeding ‘fellow’ European Union member nations to death. All thanks to Allen Dulles’ CIA rescuing war criminal Reinhardt Gehlen from justice and putting him at the top of a reconstituted Gestapo intelligence apparatus (staffed with Gestapo & SS veterans) then handed this resurrected monster over to the post-war Federal Republic of Germany as it’s own CIA: the BND or Bundesnachrichtendienst. You can read a bit of this ugly history, impacting today, HERE.

On a larger scale, the USA’s Dulles legacy has behaved much the same. If the German elite will now have the ‘Arab’ problem to exploit in a renewed push for a police state, the USA elite already have the Black/White division that can be exploited to the same purpose. Make no mistake, when the USA’s street violence has risen to a level ‘justifying’ police state tactics and solutions, White identity groups will discover they had been used and discarded like the ignorant stooges they are.

In the American Black experience, this controversy is (with absolute historical validity) perceived as “white privilege.” Outside of Africa (e.g. the USA), I don’t recall any incidence of Blacks owning White slaves.

Insofar as those high profile neo-liberals ‘nominally’ backing the Black Lives Matter and other Black identity movements, these movements should educate themselves in history (other than the history provided by the organs of state) and understand their political backers are derived from a long legacy of elites exploiting Blacks; when given ‘opportunity’ such as a chance to get ahead by abandoning their self-sufficient farms in the rural south to work ‘high paying’ jobs in the industrial north … only to be abandoned in what became ghettos when the elites were no longer profiting from Black labor, factories closed and ‘opportunity’ moved elsewhere. This process repeated, again and again.

Concerning Charlottesville, General Lee is an ironic historical figure to exploit for purpose of civic strife. It was Robert E Lee, through the force of his personality, wide influence over the southern Whites and principled stance he took, post Appomattox surrender, prevented possible decades of Southern guerrilla insurgency from 1865 into the future.

In the American White Experience, General Lee is (for many) about much more than Southern heroics, or alternatively, in the North’s historical revisionism concerning Black slavery and racism (Lincoln would have settled for slavery continuing prior to a political decision taken in the Summer of 1862.) The American civil war was not over some simplistic casus belli but was a complex circumstance that ultimately pit the competing forward visions for the USA by the Federalists and anti-Federalists, perhaps best represented historically in the persons of Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. This was unfinished business and the Federalist heirs absolutely gained the upper hand with the North’s victory. When the South, and by implication, the anti-Federalists lost, it opened the door for future unscrupulous persons to exploit all Americans. You can read a bit on this American tension HERE.

The result of the Northern ‘victory’ had some positive aspect but was not entirely positive. America’s Blacks realized emancipation (if painfully, with decades of Jim Crow to follow), but today the North’s and South’s White progeny, both, are well down the road to economic and civic slavery together with America’s Blacks, Mexican-Americans and all the rest, with the loss of the anti-Federalist authored Bill of Rights, particularly with the loss of the 1st through 8th Amendments to the American Constitution, effectively canceled by the National Security Act of 1947. With that patently unconstitutional law came the CIA (backbone of the deep state), secret courts, warrant-less searches and a general degrading of civil liberties for all. It were never a ‘black & white’ world.

When slave owning Southerners disingenuously took on the anti-Federalist mantle of ‘States Rights’, exploited Southern patriotism and lost, we all lost our future to unscrupulous Northern Federalists, whether we are White, Black, Southerner, Northerner or post-war immigrant.

At the end of the day, it’s all about greed and consolidating power for those who would own us ALL, regardless of race.

One caution I should mention is, however the ‘deep state’ might play racial identity groups off each other, while sincerely not caring about casualties on either side despite the pretense, where they will welcome ANYONE, regardless of race, is all of those who will come over to where the neo-con and neo-liberal converge; in support for modern Federalist feudalism or the power structures propping up the contemporary elite. It’s not only White politicians aligned with Trump and his elite ‘owned’ Ben Carson. It is both sides of the aisle in Congress, it’s Paul Ryan, it’s Nancy Pelosi, it’s Mitch McConnell, it’s Chuck Schumer and, it is the system’s elite servants Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton with their ongoing and abject failure to honestly educate, inspire and effect change.


An info-satire by Ronald

snook |sno͝ok|
noun (also known as ‘thumb your nose’) informal
• place one’s hand so that the thumb touches one’s nose and the fingers are spread out, in order to express contempt: The LA Times reporter didn’t dare to write Ron West was quick to thumb his nose when the CIA was actually looking.
• openly show contempt or a lack of respect for someone or something; to thumb one’s nose: the very same coward spent a journalism career at the LA Times thumbing his nose at a dumbed-down public.

“Seven non-members of the non-deep state are so enraged by the idea that people might think the totally fake American deep state might be real, that they accidentally publish seemingly coordinated attacks on the very idea. Under very similar titles. All within the same few days. Citing the same “counter examples” of Egypt and Turkey. All acting with symmetrical umbrage” -Off Guardian

Ok, so ‘Kit’ at Off Guardian summarized mainstream [intelligence agency implanted] media denial quite succinctly; in other words just because there are ‘deep state’ symptoms practically every direction one looks, if you happen to believe a rooster should appear, sound, and behave as a rooster, you are likely deluded.

From Steve Bannon to Glen Ford, with James Corbett somewhere in the middle, or in order of those listed, from a paranoid-fascist genius on the right to a no-nonsense social critic on the left, as well an astute neutral observer in the middle, when it comes to a ‘deep state’, all can agree when the same creature crows like a rooster, looks like a rooster and lives in a chicken house, it should be called a rooster, not a snook.

In other words, what should it tell you when The New Yorker, Salon, The LA Times, Politico Magazine, The Atlantic, RealClear Politics, and the Observer all insist a barking dog is actually saying meow? And if you do NOT agree, you’re a paranoid conspiracy theorist? Now, there’s a real snook. But that’s the business of media these days, deliberately thumbing their nose at reality and putting you down if you don’t agree.

First, what the American deep state is NOT:

It’s not Turkey, Egypt or Syria. These are red herrings tossed into print by the USA’s deep state press/mouthpieces.

red herring |ˈˌrɛd ˈhɛrɪŋ|
1 something, especially a clue, that is or is intended to be misleading or distracting: the CIA recruited academic had produced a deep state debunking article for Counter Punch with red herrings Turkey, Syria & Egypt. So named from the practice of using the scent of red herring in training dogs (not cats.)

What the American deep state IS: a spineless sociopath, multiple-personalities, artificial entity with synthetic soul; which sometimes attacks itself. It has a faux conscious manifest in the National Prayer Breakfast. Its exoskeleton is the facade of democracy. Its muscle mass is the federal bureaucracy. Its ruptured spleen is the Council on Foreign Relations. Its jaundiced liver is NATO. Its irritable bowel syndrome is the USA’s military industrial corporate boards. Its severely diseased heart is Exxon-Mobil. Its anus is Capitol Hill. It’s [soon to be] broken life support machine is Wall Street. In its’ current, more or less schizophrenic mental state, it is the generals versus the spooks; the left brain-dead NSA versus the right brain-dead CIA, also known as (in Trumps head) Snowden is bad, WikiLeaks is good. Its synthetic soul is ‘The Fellowship’ (and its satellite, the Federalist Society.)

snooker |ˈsno͝okər|
• trick, entice, or trap: the public was snookered into buying F-35s at prices that were too high.
• leave (someone) in a difficult position; thwart: The CIA managed to lose its family jewels—the NSA left Gina Haspel snookered.

In short, the CIA’s ‘dirty tricks’ (Special Activities) division had been a rogue player in the orbit of the Prescott Bush family and corporate associates since the days of Allan Dulles. In the seamless transition from ‘dubya’ to Hussein Obama, it was Robert Gates & David Petraeus had welded this branch of the CIA to the Pentagon and brought it under the Pentagon umbrella via the SOC (special operations command) where it could be safely preserved in upcoming euthanasia of those neo-liberal controlled divisions of the CIA at odds with the generals. In other words, bye-bye to the influence of the Council on Foreign Relations, and other, similar, entities because the tacit understanding of bygone days or ‘the balance of tolerance’ (tolerating players you despise, Hussein Obama, Hillary, Soros & associated ‘usual suspects’) are indeed over.  The Coe cult has made its move via the generals and the rest, as they say, will be history. Where is ‘the donald’ in this play? He’s allowed himself to become a pawn played to sacrifice in a gambit; that is a stooge and a fool. This had been accomplished via his administration appointments, most notably preceded by his selection of the generals’ favorite Coe cult ‘fellowship‘ Bible-believer Pence:


literal Armageddon planning session

Think that’s far-fetched? Think again:

Pentagon-Bible - 1 (3)

“To see past and present Bible studies used in the Pentagon click here

In 2017 what is the Bible study at the Pentagon? That would be the Old Testament’s Jonah. Here follows is reasonable expectation of the lessons our generals take to heart when embracing a 3,000 years old fairy tale (there’s a reason this article begins with a ‘Loony Tunes’ clip)


Jonah was minding his own business.
Nineveh, God said
Speak to Nineveh.

Jonah said:
Screw that,
Those people won’t listen.

And God said:
You don’t get it, Jonah
So try this:

Burped a Whale
The upchucked Jonah
Wanted a bath, badly.

And Nineveh
Did not repent
As much as

Not knowing
Their left hand from right,
In the end

God felt sorry for their cows.

Or, in our generals/Mike Pence spiritual guru Doug Coe’s other study:

^ “I’ve seen pictures of the young men in the Red Guard… They would bring in this young man’s mother. He would take an axe and cut her head off. They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of their father, mother, brother, sister, and their own life. That was a covenant. A pledge. That’s what Jesus said” -Doug Coe

So, as different factions of the deep state slug it out, Doug Coe will finally eschew Hillary’s blow-jobs (Hillary had always been too busy elsewhere to give Bill what he wanted) and go with the generals, as the Bible studying Pentagon’s NSA (smiling like a hillbilly) slips the Vault 7 greased-pig-job to the CIA:

Meanwhile, over at AIPAC, everything is on track with the Zionists (Christian & Jewish) as the messianic agenda progresses… the problem with ordinary people is, they have no idea of the theological madness behind the perfectly serious(ly insane) Christian crusaders at the Pentagon:

The paranoid Jewish Zionists embrace these rabid anti-Semitic Christian Zionists who fully intend the Jewish Zionists will become extinct once they’ve finished the dirty work of retaking the West Bank for the Christian Zionists necrotic vision on a road to Armageddon, meanwhile the Jewish Zionists label any non-Jewish anti-Zionist as anti-Semitic, when in fact most of the non-Jewish anti-Zionists are the bitter foes of the rabid anti-Semitic Christian Zionists momentarily embraced by the Jewish Zionists.

Now, in the mix of all of this, the anti-Zionist Jewish personalities are in an impossible state of being forced to play a game of ‘shut the fuck up’ or get blasted by all Zionists, Jewish and Christian, while the non-Jewish anti-Zionist is attacked by the paranoid Ashkenazi, who became paranoid and Zionist, on account of the pogroms of anti-Semitic Christian Zionists. These people bite the hand of people who’re actually doing them a favor by taking on the rabidly anti-Semitic Christian Zionists, personalities  who intend as soon as the partnership of convenience is over, all those clinging to Judaism will be tossed into a lake of what will almost certainly amount to man-made nuclear fire…

Meanwhile, if you’re too smart to be obsessed with the Russians are to blame for everything gone wrong on this flat earth, in the midst of our deep state’s internecine war, every deep state publishing party wants you to believe the deep state existence is a fantasy, here’s a few samples:

Excellent commentary by Glen Ford at Black Agenda Report. Much of what he writes about is detailed across a spectrum of political alignments (including this f**k all politics blog.) To read the original at Black Agenda Report, click HERE

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

The various organs of the Deep State, including the corporate media, work hard to convince the public that the Deep State does not exist. (Kind of like that story about the Devil.) In fact, the Deep State runs the show. “The truth is that an oligarchy rules, and makes war on whomever it chooses — internationally and domestically — for the benefit of corporate capital.” It has neutralized a sitting president, less than two months in office.

The U.S. Deep State Rules – On Behalf of the Ruling Class

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“The U.S. Deep State is unlike any other, in that there is no other global superpower bent on world domination.”

The Deep State is busy denying that it exists, even as it savages a sitting president and brutally bitch-slaps its host society, demanding the nation embrace its role as global psycho thug and kick some Russian ass. The New York Times, always available to divert attention from the essential facts of who rules America, points to Egypt, Turkey and Pakistan as the natural habitats of Deep States. Apparently, Deep State-infected countries tend to be nations with majority Muslim populations, whose military-intelligence apparatus hovers over society and periodically seizes control of the civil government.

The Times quoted high-ranking operatives of the Deep State to prove that such structures are alien to the U.S. Michael V. Hayden, who ran the CIA under Democratic President Obama and Republican George Bush, recoiled at the term. He “would never use” the words Deep State in connection with his own country. “That’s a phrase we’ve used for Turkey and other countries like that, but not the American republic.”

Loren DeJonge Schulman, a former Obama National Security Council official, claimed to be repelled by the very idea of an American Deep State. “A deep state, when you’re talking about Turkey or Egypt or other countries, that’s part of government or people outside of government that are literally controlling the direction of the country no matter who’s actually in charge, and probably engaging in murder and other corrupt practices,” she said.

Apparently, Deep State-infected countries tend to be nations with majority Muslim populations, whose military-intelligence apparatus hovers over society and periodically seizes control of the civil government.”

Apparently, Ms. Schulman did not consider it murder when Obama and his top national security advisors met every Tuesday at the White House to decide who would be assassinated by drone or other means. But she is “shocked” to hear “that kind of [Deep State-phobic] thinking from” President Trump “or the people closest to him.”

Once the Times had located the nexus of Deep Statism in the Muslim world, the lesser lights at The New Yorker endorsed the corporate media consensus that the U.S. is Deep State-free. Staff writer David Remnick admits that U.S. presidents “have felt resistance, or worse, from elements in the federal bureaucracies,” citing Eisenhower’s warnings against the military-industrial complex, Lyndon Johnson’s “pressure from the Pentagon,” and the “rebuke” of Obama’s Syria policy through the State Department’s “dissent channel.” However, he denies that any “subterranean web of common and nefarious purpose” threatens the orderly and transparent processes of the U.S. political system.

In reality, the U.S. Deep State is by far the world’s biggest and most dangerous version of the phenomenon; a monstrous and not-so subterranean “web of common and nefarious purpose” that is, by definition, truly global, since its goal is to rule the planet. Indeed, the Deep States of Turkey, Egypt and Pakistan — all nominal U.S. allies – are midgets in comparison and must operate in a global environment dominated by Washington’s Deep State apparatus. So vast is the imperial Deep State, that its counterparts in other nations exist largely to collaborate with, resist, or keep tabs on the U.S. behemoth, the predator that seeks to devour all the rest.

“The U.S. Deep State is by far the world’s biggest and most dangerous version of the phenomenon; a monstrous and not-so subterranean ‘web of common and nefarious purpose’ that is, by definition, truly global.”

What is a Deep State? The U.S. Deep State is unlike any other, in that there is no other global superpower bent on world domination. (Washington’s political posture is also unique; no other nation claims to be “exceptional” and “indispensable” and thus not subject to the constraints of international law and custom.) Indeed, the U.S. is so proudly and publicly imperialist that much of what should be secret information about U.S. military and other capabilities is routinely fed to the world press, such as the 2011 announcement that the U.S. now has a missile that can hit any target on the planet in 30 minutes, part of the Army’s “Prompt Global Strike” program. Frightening the rest of the world into submission — a form of global terrorism — is U.S. public policy.

However, arming and training Islamic jihadist terrorists to subvert internationally recognized governments targeted by the U.S. for regime change is more than your usual variety of covert warfare: It is a policy that must forever be kept secret, because U.S. society would suffer a political breakdown if the facts of U.S. and Saudi nurturing of the international jihadist network were ever fully exposed. This is Deep State stuff of the highest order. The true nature of U.S. foreign policy in the 21st century, and the real character of the current wars in Syria and Iraq, must be hidden from the U.S. public at all cost. An alternative reality must be presented, through daily collaboration between corporate media, corporate universities, and the public and covert organs of the U.S. State.

“U.S. society would suffer a political breakdown if the facts of U.S. and Saudi nurturing of the international jihadist network were ever fully exposed.”

What part of the New York Times coverage of the war against Syria is a lie? Damn near all of it. What role does the Deep State play in crafting the lies dutifully promulgated by the corporate media? That’s impossible to answer, because the Deep State is a network of relationships, not a clearly delineated zone or space or set of organizations. The best way to describe the imperial Deep State is: those individuals and institutions that are tasked with establishing the global supremacy of the corporate ruling class. Such activities must be masked, since they clash with the ideological position of the ruling class, which is that the bourgeois electoral system of the United States is the world’s freest and fairest. The official line is that the U.S. State is a work of near-perfection, with checks and balances that prevent any class, group or section from domination over the other. The truth is that an oligarchy rules, and makes war on whomever it chooses — internationally and domestically — for the benefit of corporate capital.

The Deep State and its corporate imperatives manifestly exists when corporate lobbyists and lawyers are allowed to draw up the Trans Pacific Partnership global “trade” agreement, but the contents are kept secret from the Congresspersons whose duty is to vote on the measure. The Deep State is where corporate power achieves its class aims outside the public processes of government. It’s where the most vicious class warfare takes place, whether on a foreign killing field, or in the corporate newsroom that erases or misrepresents what happened on that battlefield.

At this stage of capitalism, the U.S. ruling class has less and less use for the conventional operations of the bourgeois state. It cannot govern in the old way. More and more, it seeks to shape events through the levers of the collaborating networks of the Deep State. It’s number one global priority is to continue the military offensive begun in 2011, and to break Russia’s resolve to resist that offensive. The ruling class and its War Party, now consolidated within the Democratic Party and regrouping among Republicans, have effectively neutralized a sitting president whose party controls both Houses of Congress, less than two months into his term.

Only a Deep State could pull that off.

In the Tom Englehardt interview with Laura Poitras (Snowden documentary film-maker) wondering if, in relation to the security state…

“the goal that they proclaim is not the goal”

…is the most astute and least explored observation in not only the interview, but the least explored phenomena of the entire security state. The usurping of our constitution and rule of law is not about fighting terror and fighting terror is in fact a purposeful avenue to coup de état. The same purpose is served with NATO aggression with pretext of Ukraine. A social tension to a degree where military is justified to make policy (we already see this) is avenue to suspension of habeas corpus.

Where Poitras has missed the boat and is to a great extent misled, is also where professional intelligence information operations will spend high $ and go into hyper-drive/overtime to shape the public discourse away from the deep state goal. That strategy can include deliberate leaks accompanied by persecution/prosecution to draw attention to the Mannings & Assanges of this world, to keep the focus of personalities like Poitras off the mark. Katrina vanden Heuval, in her ‘The Nation’ interview with Snowden, brought up a ‘deep state’ concept which Snowden acknowledged but the subject was as quickly dropped. Why? Because they’ve no idea where that trail leads to?

So long as the focus can kept be on personalities revealing facts but not leading to motive, and individual acts & information that distract from an internal ‘deep state’ are the obsession, the perpetrators within a security state’s concealed agenda will be winning. In this scenario, if Snowden was unforeseen, Assange has been a tool where the man is the issue, as much as what he has released doesn’t touch where the internal threat of the security state issues from. This becomes a distraction and creates numerous rabbit trails obscuring the source of the malevolent security state behaviors. Poitras and her ilk on the left hasn’t seen through this.

One reason for Poitras and the left’s myopia is embrace of a political mythology. When your archetype myth is challenged, there is a visceral rejection of evidence that is staring one in the face. In fact Pentagon liaison to the CIA, L. Fletcher Prouty, a man who would be in position to know without a doubt as one of the authors of the so-called Pentagon Papers, long ago fingered Daniel Ellsberg as at the center of a deliberately engineered (by the security state) leak meant to shift responsibility for the failures of Vietnam policy from the CIA to the military. Ellsberg is a keystone of the deep state disinformation campaign on the left; the people who’ve built information that tend to support Colonel Prouty’s revelation (not a hypothesis) are on the center right and better positioned to know where the deep state derives from (the right.)

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is one such organization. Presided over by a Reagan White House attorney, Mikey Weinstein, there is no one better positioned to point to a hyper-right-wing Christian religious coup at the Pentagon. Colonel Prouty, an old line conservative, had labeled this deep state cult ‘The Secret Team’ and described it as a “new religion.” Investigative reporter Jeff Sharlet has documented the related Doug Coe cult extensively. Seymour Hersh and more have touched on it. It has both Catholic & Protestant membership that overlaps with Opus Dei and Assemblies of God (and other sects.) This endeavor had began in the 1930s with Hitler sympathetic-religious businessmen organized into cells based on intelligence agency model. The goal of an elite, weaponized, Christian hierarchy usurping western democratic institutions, an international endeavor based in powerful corporate board interests integrated to our most powerful law enforcement, intelligence agency and military personalities, is nearly within reach for what amounts to a self-annointed ‘chosen’ Christian religious cult-international criminal syndicate.

So long as the left embraces a mythology induced myopia that precludes a straightforward exam of this reality, the deep state will remain poised to win at the end of a day that is not very far away-

Sociopaths & Democracy

Deep State Series, part four of eight

“Washington (AFP) – The US Air Force has told a sergeant he will have to leave the military unless he agrees to take an oath with the phrase “so help me God,” officials said

A religious-military totalitarian state is born:

“Mr. Snowden has brought home to us that, while we Americans do not yet live in a police state or tyranny, we are well along in building the infrastructure on which either could be instantly erected if our leaders decided to do so.  No longer protected by the law, our freedoms now depend on the self-restraint of men and women in authority, many of them in uniform.  History protests that if one builds a turnkey totalitarian state, those who hold the keys will eventually turn them” -former U.S. Ambassador Chas Freeman

Sociopaths & Democracy

a personality disorder manifesting in antisocial attitudes & behavior and lack of conscience
sociopathic |ˌsōsēōˈpaTHik| adjective.
sociopathy |ˌsōsēˈäpəTHē| noun

In March 2009, Seymour Hersh, naming Admiral William McRaven, mentioned an ‘executive assassinating ring’ that reported directly to Dick Cheney until its military commander (McRaven) had ordered it stopped (we are supposed to believe.) In August 2009, the story broke Central Intelligence Agency had hired Blackwater for a covert assassination program and then new CIA director Panetta ordered it cancelled (we also are supposed to believe.) It was in August 2009 Kieth Olbermann broke the story on Blackwater crusaders:

“The affidavit also says that Prince, quote, “views himself as a Christian crusader eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe. To that end, Mr. Prince intentionally deployed to Iraq certain men who shared his vision of Christian supremacy. Many of these men used call signs based on the Knights of the Templar, the warriors who fought the crusades”

It was May of 2009 Harpers Magazine broke the story of a 2004 incident, a Special Forces officer, following viewing ‘The Passion of the Christ’, took his team into the suburbs of the Iraqi city of Samarra while using a bullhorn during evening prayer hour to broadcast “Jesus killed Mohammed

““Each time I go into combat I get closer to God,” [Special Forces officer] DeGiulio would later say. He thought The Passion had been a sign that he would survive”

It was in 2008, the Pentagon promoted (now three star) General Robert Caslen despite the fact he’d been recommended for disciplinary action by the Department of Defense Inspector General for participating in a promotional Christian evangelical video where he states (in uniform, at the Pentagon) “We are the aroma of Jesus Christ”

“We substantiated the allegation in regards to military officers. The seven officers participated in interviews with Christian Embassy, excerpts of which were also included in the [Christian Embassy] promotional video. The officers were filmed during the duty day, in uniform with rank clearly displayed, in official and often identifiable Pentagon locations. Their remarks conferred approval of, and support to Christian Embassy, and the remarks of some officers implied they spoke for a group of senior military leaders, rather than just for themselves”

It is worth noting here, General Caslen is identified as president of the “Officers Christian Fellowship” whose mission statement is:

“a spiritually transformed military, with ambassadors for Christ in uniform, empowered by the Holy Spirit”

And now, following too many similar stories to list, we skip forward to April 2014, where the United States Army (officers at the Pentagon) is sending a military chaplain, band, color guard and entertainers to an event sponsored by the uber-right-wing ‘National Day of Prayer Task Force’, an organization which requires all its members and volunteers working with them to:

“to provide on their applications their ‘testimony’ of their ‘personal relationship’ with Jesus Christ”

Following on this spate of news on the motive and drive behind the people in custody of our world’s most lethal arsenal, we return to Seumour Hersh. In January, 2011, Hersh mentions Admiral William McRaven again, in context of Catholic religious-right extremism, Hersh states as a matter of fact the Joint Special Operations Command’s top leadership is populated with members of Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta and has this to say about the USA’s special operations commanders in regards to their membership in these right-wing Catholic organizations:

“They do see what they’re doing — and this is not an atypical attitude among some military — it’s a crusade, literally,” Hersh reportedly continued. “They see themselves as the protectors of the Christians. They’re protecting them from the Muslims [as in] the 13th century. And this is their function”

I admire Seymour Hersh, he has done some very important reporting on the USA’s dirty work in geopolitics, however I do not believe journalists, even the good ones, are gods. But, he nearly nails it here and it took a lot of guts to name the Knights of Malta and Opus Dei in relation to the American Joint Special Operations Command, because these are the sort of stories which are deliberately buried in the public psyche by associating the facts with nut jobs like Alex Jones and David Icke. Nothing works quite like humans with lizard DNA on the same page, alongside some of the most important stories of our time (mixed with disinformation), to get ordinary people to dismiss the most critical information out of hand. But that’s the purpose Jones and Icke serve. We won’t go to Alex Jones and his ilk, rather to Mother Jones instead.

But first, the problem with Hersh is, he is too conservative in his interpretations and by narrowly focusing his stories, will almost certainly miss the larger picture in relation to the Christian extremism at the Pentagon (and has done things like this before with his journalism.) But that’s what journalists do, keep a narrow focus. Intelligence analysts, on the other hand, must paint the larger picture and run the risk of blowing an analysis, but the good ones generally won’t. Using open source analysis, I’ll take you to the big picture of religion in relation to our Pentagon, special operations forces, Knights of Malta and Opus Dei, but to arrive in focus, we have to go back to the collapse of the 3rd Reich and begin with a look at the Vatican ‘Ratline‘ allowing literally tens of thousands of Nazis to escape Europe in the aftermath of World War Two. History shapes societies and our society is no exception. The primary ‘Ratline’ example for purpose of this essay is Horst Wagner, responsible for the murders of 350,000 people:

“After escaping from a Nuremberg jail in 1948, [Wagner] later explained .. how he was aided on his way to South America on the so-called Kloster Line, being given sanctuary in a number of convents and holy orders in Austria before heading to Rome. He sailed out of Genoa to Argentina to join such killers as Adolf Eichmann, the supreme mastermind behind the Holocaust, and Josef Mengele, the perverted ‘Angel of Death’ of Auschwitz, notorious for his grotesque medical experiments.

“[German Bishop at Rome assigned to smuggle Nazis] Hudal also arranged the paperwork for Franz Stangl, the commandant of the extermination camps of Sobibor and Treblinka, to flee to Brazil on a Red Cross passport using Vatican funds. Stangl, who was eventually extradited back to Germany in the 1960s and died in jail while serving a life sentence of his crimes, oversaw the murder of an estimated 1.4 million people at the two camps”

This preceding is example of a joint venture between the Vatican, MI6 and the CIA’s ‘Operation Paperclip’, a Nazi rescuing endeavor born out of an intensely close relationship between the man who shaped what later became the CIA and the Vatican, detailed in a one year investigation reported by Mother Jones in 1983:

“One day in July 1944, as the Second World War raged throughout Europe, General William “Wild Bill” Donovan was ushered into an ornate chamber in Vatican City for an audience with Pope Pius XII. Donovan bowed his head reverently as the pontiff intoned a ceremonial prayer in Latin and decorated him with the Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Sylvester, the oldest and most prestigious of papal knighthoods

“Pope Pius’ decoration of Wild Bill Donovan marked the beginning of a long-standing, intimate relationship between the Vatican and U.S. intelligence that continues to the present day”

The Mother Jones investigative report goes on:

“But the needy aided by certain SMOM [Sovereign Military Order of Malta, a.k.a. The Knights of Malta] members in the late 40s were some of the 50,000 Nazi war criminals who, with the assistance of the International Red Cross, were furnished fake Vatican passports and, in some cases, clerical robes, and were smuggled on Bishop Alois Hudal’s “underground railroad” to South America. Among those was Klaus Barbie, the “butcher of Lyon.”

In 1948, the SMOM gave one of its highest awards of honor, the Gran Croci al Merito con Placca, to General Reinhard Gehlen, Adolf Hitler’s chief anti-Soviet spy. (Only three other people received this award.) Gehlen, who was not a Catholic, was touted as a formidable ally in the holy crusade against godless Marxism. After the war he and his well-developed spy apparatus—staffed largely by ex-Nazis—joined the fledgling CIA. Eventually, hundreds more Nazis ended up on the U.S. government’s payroll. Among them was Klaus Barbie.

A note on the immediate preceding, Gehlen was ‘rehabilitated’ by the CIA and subsequently became the head of post-war West Germany’s CIA, known as BND. We’ll come back to this. Mother Jones goes on:

“The CIA very early on made a decision that Nazis were more valuable as allies and agents than as war criminals” says Victor Marchetti, an ex-CIA officer who was raised a Catholic. Marchetti is disturbed by the role of the CIA and his church in perpetuating the Nazi outrage. “It gets a little crazy,” he said, “when you let one thing [anticommunism] take over to the extent that you forgive everything else”

Ok,  so now we can take the Mother Jones report, setting up the CIA relationship to the Vatican, and run with it. It was ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan established the close relationship with the Vatican to what became the CIA. Walter Beedle Smith, the first CIA director, brought on-board Allan Dulles. It was these three men who were the primary co-collaborators with the Vatican, over a period exceeding ten years from the late 1940s through the 1950s, in the rescue and delivery to safety of between forty and fifty thousand 3rd Reich criminals. The USA wanted the Nazi scientists (Operation Paperclip) and this paid off dramatically, not only Nazi Party member and rocket technologist (V2 bombing of London) Werner von Braun developing the future American ICBM missiles & USA space program launch successes, but also employing Nazi medical science, this is where the CIA went off the rails with Project MKUltra. But by far, the OSS that became the CIA, mostly wanted Nazi intelligence and its agents particularly, especially those familiar with the Soviet Union. And this is where the western democracies generally, not only the USA, went off the rails.

There is an interesting short memo, dated 1946 and declassified by the CIA, on Walter Beedle Smith, including this interesting language:

“Beedle Smith, on several occasions, called in the Chief Chaplain and gave him very firm orders to straighten with the Vatican Mission .. with a new appointment of chief of the Vatican position, one may expect the relationship will be bettered”

The specific intent of the memo is somewhat masked because it appears to be a code named subject (orchestra/oak) but the message is clear relating to Beedle Smith; as (at that time) Eisenhower’s military chief of staff, he is putting up with no nonsense from any Chaplain assigned to the ‘Vatican Mission.’ If (conjecture) this has to do with Protestant/Roman Catholic relations getting in the way of business, it is a lesson Beedle Smith’s protege, Allan Dulles, took to heart.

Allan Dulles is NOT the man a CIA edited Wikipedia represents:

“In 1935 Dulles returned from a business trip to Germany appalled by the Nazi treatment of German Jews and, despite his brother’s objections, led a movement within the law firm of Sullivan and Cromwell to close their Berlin office.As a result of Dulles’ efforts, the Berlin office was closed and the firm ceased to conduct business in Nazi Germany”

Rather trust the Guardian:

“”The Consolidated Silesian Steel Company situation has become increasingly complicated, and I have accordingly brought in Sullivan and Cromwell, in order to be sure that our interests are protected,” wrote Knight. “After studying the situation Foster Dulles is insisting that their man in Berlin get into the picture and obtain the information which the directors here should have. You will recall that Foster is a director and he is particularly anxious to be certain that there is no liability attaching to the American directors””

Allan Dulles is “Foster Dulles” brother and all Allan Dulles’ law firm is concerned with is protecting business interests and escaping liability, nothing more. Certainly the man who spent years following the war protecting and helping thousands of Nazis evade justice cannot be the man concerned for Jews represented at Wikipedia.

Allan Dulles (and subsequent CIA personalities) did not limit the CIA relationship with the Catholic Church at Rome to shipping Nazis to safety (and in many instance providing them paid careers) but considerably widened the CIA/Church cooperation with the implementing of Operation Gladio. This is where things become even more sticky, if that were to seem possible. Related to this, when anonymous editors of Wikipedia had been tracked to Langley, Virginia and the CIA, they had seemed keen on deleting career CIA (operations division) man William Colby’s admission the CIA had set up (Operation Gladio) secret militia throughout Western Europe in concert with Opus Dei. The deleted entries include:

“According to a November 25, 1990 article by the Danish daily newspaper ”Berlingske Tidende”, quoted by Daniele Ganser in his 2005 book on Gladio, a source named “Q” confirmed William Colby’s revelations in his memoirs about the setting-up of stay-behind armies in Scandinavia .. Opus Dei played a central role in the setting up of Gladio in the whole of Europe”

But first, there is a powerful right-wing of the Catholic Church, firmly rooted in the Vatican, represented in Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta, had supported the rise of Latin America’s fascist juntas in concert with the CIA, following on the Nazi exodus to that global region. But this right-wing branch of the church did not by any means remain idle in Europe and North America.

In Europe, after the USA abandoned denazification during the Dulles tenure at the CIA, a most interesting CIA file on Reinhard Gehlen turns up, definitively establishing by the late 1950s at the Federal Parliament in West Germany, 26% of Bundestag [parliament] members were former Nazi Party members and 28% of Bundestag staff were the same. Of further interest is Gehlen himself, recalling the Mother Jones reporting in 1948 he’d been awarded high honors by the Vatican’s Knights of Malta:

“In March 1950, John McCloy was given the task of appointing a new head of the West German Secret Service. After discussing the matter with Frank Wisner of the CIA, McCloy decided on Reinhard Gehlen, the Nazi war criminal. This resulted in protests from the Soviet Union government who wanted to try Gehlen for war crimes.

“During the Second World War Gehlen served Adolf Hitler as head of military intelligence for the Eastern Front. It was in this post he had created a right-wing group made up of anti-Soviet Ukrainians and other Slavic nationalists into small armies and guerrilla units to fight the Soviets. The group carried out some of the most extreme atrocities that took place during the war. Gehlen was also responsible for a brutal interrogation program of Soviet prisoners of war

“Gehlen recruited large numbers of former members of the SS and the Gestapo. This included Franz Six, who had led Einsatzguppen mobile killing squads on the Eastern Front. The Gehlen Organization was also used to help Nazi war criminals escape to South America. This included Klaus Barbie who was smuggled out of Germany in March, 1951 and given a new life in Bolivia”

How have the CIA effort initiated with Gehlen turned out?

Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) or Federal Intelligence Service (Germany) reports directly to Angela Merkel. Recapping the preceding, this German counterpart to the CIA had been born out of the USA’s rescue of Nazi intelligence at the end of World War Two. Initially organized by the OSS and subsequently CIA as the ‘Gehlen Organization’ under Hitler’s veteran Soviet spymaster (Nazi war criminal) Reinhard Gehlen, the BND came into existence when the Gehlen Organization, staffed with Nazi Party & SS veterans, as well as more than 100 former Gestapo officers, was transferred by the USA to the Federal Republic of Germany (then so-called ‘West Germany’) to be under the authority of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. And so it was Hitler’s top intelligence people became Germany’s post-war counterpart to the CIA. One can only imagine Reinhard Gehlen’s smirk when he’d stated his organization employed a lower percentage of former SS & Gestapo than most ministries in Adenauer’s Federal Republic of Germany government.

Nazi’s don’t shed their spots, folks. Simple social psychology determines an agency staffed with Gestapo that is historically, closely wedded to Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (and especially the CDU’s ‘sister’ party, the Christian Social Union) will have kept a certain proclivity or sympathies intact. It’s like any exclusive club at the top, you are hired based on the people controlling the interview process (Gestapo) and promoted to the top because of your willingness to ‘play the game’, insuring a particular mindset will perpetrate itself (similar to inter-generational violence.) This will certainly be  the case of the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) in relation to Angela Merkel’s political support structures in the Bundestag (German Parliament) and its numerous Nazi founders. To see Merkel’s minions (and by implication BND) fingerprints supporting a CIA initiated putsch installing a neo-nazi regime in Ukraine, one need look no farther than Merkel’s CDU aligned Adenauer Foundation:

“According to press reports, the German government would like to have boxing champion Vitali Klitschko run for president and bring him to power in the Ukraine. It would like to enhance the popularity of the opposition’s politician by staging, for example, joint public appearances with the German foreign minister. For this purpose, a meeting is also planned for Klitschko with Chancellor Merkel at the next EU summit in mid-December. The Konrad Adenauer Foundation is, in fact, not only massively supporting Klitschko and his UDAR party. According to a CDU politician, the UDAR Party was founded in 2010 on the direct orders of the CDU foundation. Reports on the foundation’s activities for the development of Klitschko’s party give an indication of how Germans are influencing the Ukraine’s domestic affairs via UDAR. Berlin’s use of Poland in its policy toward the Ukraine is also increasing. Berlin and Warsaw are cooperating with the Ukrainian ultra right-wing Svoboda (“Liberty”) party, which stands in the tradition of Nazi collaborators, who massacred 100,000 Christian and Jewish Poles during WW II”

Meanwhile, it should come as no surprise the present day German government has laws on its books subsidizing the church. What is Opus Dei up to in today’s Germany? According to a former senior church theologian:

“I published the magazine Theological Issues and was summoned by the sponsors every time a faintly liberal view was espoused. Opus Dei people were always there to observe. They said I wasn’t allowed to write “life partner;” it should instead be referred to as “fornication partner.” “Homosexuality” was too neutral, they said. One had to refer to it as “unnatural fornication”


“I supported anti-democratic and anti-liberal groups .. in which some people dream of a fundamentalist Catholic religious state or seriously call for a Catholic jihad”

And very interesting:

“the Vatican is .. relying increasingly on reactionary troops. It is closing ranks with evangelists, bible fundamentals and extremely reactionary forces”

Meanwhile in North America, one cannot expect Opus Dei and Knights of Malta has been idle, but we will cover this in relation to establishing Gladio, the CIA and particularly the CIA’s relationship to the USA’s special operations commanders. It was former Pentagon liaison to the CIA, L Fletcher Prouty, had in his book ‘The Secret Team‘, presciently warned of the dangers of Special Operations commanders advancing to the levels of command and control represented in the Pentagon. This is on account of the special operations forces having a longstanding historical relationship to the CIA Operations Division or, in Prouty’s words the “Dirty Tricks” division, particularly in face of the fact our U.S. military is used by the CIA as cover for numerous career operatives. Add in the thought; in common with CIA, the special operations commanders are expert in psychological warfare, destabilizing false flag operations, undermining governments and asymetrical & unconventional warfare. These are not the people you want at the apex of military power in any secular democracy, it’s simply too dangerous. But in fact that is what we have arrived at, a marriage made in hell, recently represented in the person of special operations expert David Petraeus who has literally gotten away with murder according to the investigative journalism of the Guardian. Tapping the expertise of his former mentor and CIA ‘Dirty Wars’ veteran Colonel James Steele, the Iraq war commanding officer Petraeus had the American commander of secret torture centers and who was overseeing arming and training death squads, reporting directly to him:

Based on this development, I will take Prouty’s hypothesis a bit further; throw in the right-wing fascism represented in Opus Dei & Knights of Malta, taken together with the fundamentalist criminal religious enterprise known as “The Family” all married into the American Special Operations forces commanders at the Pentagon, throw in the CIA partnership, and you have what we arrived at through the USA’s intelligence partnership with the Vatican, beginning with rescuing the Nazis and progressing to Opus Dei involvement with setting up Gladio. In other words, a driving force behind policy that doesn’t answer to democratic institutions and the rule of law, but rather to the minions of theocratic ideals on the far right of the political spectrum. Insofar as a Catholic fascist alliance with with the Protestant ‘Family’, this next is quite informative; relating to Hillary Clinton’s role as NATO’s ‘mother of nations’ bringing ‘democracy’ empowering jihadists and generating mass killings sprees (e.g. regime change in Libya), here’s information with impeccable journalistic credentials. According to the investigative reporting of Mother Jones Magazine, in Hillary Clinton’s own words, she is under the spiritual tutelage of ‘Family’ leader Doug Coe:

“Coe, she writes, “is a unique presence in Washington: a genuinely loving spiritual mentor and guide to anyone, regardless of party or faith, who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God”

And according to the excellent investigative reporting of Jeff Sharlet, Coe, in his own words, is no stranger to violence in politics:

“Doug Coe offered Pol Pot and Osama bin Laden as men whose commitment to their causes is to be emulated. Preaching on the meaning of Christ’s words, he says, “You know Jesus said ‘You got to put Him before mother-father-brother sister? Hitler, Lenin, Mao, that’s what they taught the kids. Mao even had the kids killing their own mother and father. But it wasn’t murder. It was for building the new nation. The new kingdom”

And this:

“I’ve seen pictures of the young men in the Red Guard… They would bring in this young man’s mother. He would take an axe and cut her head off. They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of their father, mother, brother, sister, and their own life. That was a covenant. A pledge. That’s what Jesus said” -Doug Coe (verbatim quote from video)

And this:

On June 5 [2014], Pope Francis met in private with Doug Coe, one of the most influential evangelicals in the US and head of the Family, tea-party ally Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and former U.S. Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne who served under Bush 43 amid unprecedented scandal”

What the Doug Coe cult and its’ Vatican allies has worked decades putting into practice is Dominion Theology and ‘terror’ is the necessary tool to consolidate a ‘Dominion Theology‘ police state (subject of the next section on ‘Gladio’)

“Dominion theology refers to a line of theological interpretation and thought with regard to the role of the church in contemporary society. Dominion theology is also known as Christian reconstructionism and theonomy. Dominion theology states that biblical Christianity will rule all areas of society, personal and corporate. Christian reconstructionism reasons that society will be reconstructed by the Law of God as preached in the gospel and the Great Commission. Theonomy is a post-millennial view believing that all of the moral laws contained in the Old Testament are yet binding today”

Other than a ‘Jesus Love Nukes‘ history of the U.S. Air Force training nuclear launch officers in Saint Augustine’s ‘Christian Just War Theory’, the ample evidence for Dominion Theology overtaking command structures in the armed forces of the United States (and by extension, NATO) is finally best illustrated using this example:

“In October of 2013, the Air Force quietly modified Air Force Instruction 36-2606, which [now] states that all enlistees must sign the oath to God and swear it aloud. Prior to the change in the regulation, secular and atheist service members were allowed to omit the phrase”

This amended regulation had been brought into force for the specific purpose of weeding out the ‘unfaithful.’ If you do not subscribe to the Pentagon’s radical religious views, you’re not really welcome in the United States military, any and all public posturing to the contrary notwithstanding. Implementing the regulation speaks louder than words.


Gladio ostensibly was conceived as setting up a partisan resistance to a possible Soviet invasion of Western Europe. Anticommunist hardliners at the CIA and Vatican previously had seen eye to eye on rescuing the Nazis in the spirit of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend.’ The right-wing at the Vatican (recalling Pope Benedict’s screening of ‘The Passion of the Christ’ produced by uber-right Catholic Mel Gibson) are famous anti-Semites, no matter numerous disingenuous disclaimers, in fact ‘the Jews murdered Jesus’ theology is the underpinning of the Vatican sympathy underwriting the so-called ‘Ratlines’ which had expedited the Nazi exodus from Europe. In the case of communists, they are no better than Jews in conservative Catholic vision, both Jews and Communists disavow “The Savior.” In this case, the right-wing of the church, represented in Opus Dei & Knigths of Malta was more than willing to provide secret militia members on the extreme right of the church political spectrum, when coordinating setting up Gladio for the CIA. A fascist/anticommunist militia membership would be ‘safe’ or ‘secure’ in event of Soviet occupation of Western Europe. These would be ideologically dedicated people unlikely to cooperate and give up the Gladio partisan armies. In fact Gladio was a disaster for the democracies the operation was purported to protect.

In short, when the communists (different altogether to the Soviet style) in NATO nations were on the political ascent, it was decided to mobilize Gladio elements and suppress them, applying psychological operation melded with what amounted to Catholic neo-fascist cells. The Gladio operation had stashed arms and explosives with these neo-fascist cells across Western Europe. With some of the cells activated, in Belgium, people were indiscriminately machine-gunned in super-markets. Subsequently weapons were planted on prominent political figures on the left and ‘tips’ led to their discovery. Police investigations were stymied by the intelligence agencies. In Italy, bombings were pinned on the left and newspapers printed the carnage. Same result, the investigations were sabotaged. After several years, news of Gladio broke into the open over a massacre in Germany and suddenly it all stopped. But the perpetrators were never brought to justice:

But what was learned was quite incredible in the meanwhile; entire societies could be manipulated with terror, it had worked quite efficiently to destroy the left in public perception and there was no recovery. Even greater peril to the democracies was the result of the Opus Dei-CIA joint venture; a club within the clubs had evolved, intelligence and special operations forces controlling Gladio support and resources had been operationally integrated to Opus Dei, and Opus Dei embedded in the intelligence agencies as a matter of consequence.

When the Soviet Union collapsed and there was no longer the threat of a communist boogeyman, this NATO embedded ‘deep state’ apparatus, by this time pervasive throughout the western democracies institutions, had no problem finding a new enemy: Islam. Just as serious, when compared to Hitler’s military having/had about 8% devoted Nazi membership, with the ideological core centered at the top, in the present structure of NATO, the USA military alone has over 30% ‘Christian Dominion’ personalities, with the ideological core centered in the Pentagon and Joint Special Special Operations Command. These people command the world’s most lethal arsenal and have less than little regard for secular democracy, they are dedicated to its demise. Our CIA & Pentagon have become the home of the most powerful Opus Dei and Knights of Malta personalities in the world. Combine this with the military industrial complex boards and alliance with “The Family” and you get what the FBI has named “Gladio B”

This necrotic series of events (above video) is the Gladio social engineering virus escaped the lab, and is responsible for western corporate revenue generating false flag terror around the world. Don’t like Putin standing in the way of exploiting Central Asia? Neither does the Vatican like the Russian Orthodox Church standing in the way of Catholic encroachment in the former Soviet republics. The solution? Make Russia into ‘The Boogeyman’ justifying an ever more aggressive NATO by installing a ‘Greek Catholic’ prime minister in Kiev with a CIA-Vatican coordinated coup in Ukraine, complete with snipers killing both police and protestors, all blamed on Russia sympathetic elements but spilled open in a leaked conversation:

There is an obscure 1973 essay by former Pentagon liaison to the CIA, L Fletcher Prouty, pointing out by the time of the Johnson administration, there was a more than fair chance any President of the United States, going forward, would have found himself trapped in the circumstance of helpless in the face of executive branch institutions, the CIA Operations people particularly, behaving as they pleased, without accountability. Prouty was a smart man, and since his time, the CIA and Pentagon appear quite clearly to have become integrated into a tool that is not controlled by the President but is an agency which controls on behalf of right-wing ‘Christian Millennial‘ personalities who just happen to believe in literal Armageddon. In the final estimation, Obama, if he’d any inclination to do the right thing when coming into the presidency, he’s since found out he’d been ‘chosen’ and when you’ve been ‘chosen’, you cannot say ‘no’

I should mention I’d thought about the difference in terms between ‘psychopath’ & ‘sociopath.’ I settled on sociopath for the reasons psychopath is often seen in stereotype sense in the common usage (along the lines of Hollywood psycho-thrillers), as well sociopath casts a bit wider net. In a sense, psychopath could be seen as a subset of sociopath although I’m aware there is a changing sense of the term or some controversy as to its definition.

The contents of is largely, if not entirely, a chronicle of ‘The Alpha Project.’

The ‘Alpha Project’ initiated with my former employer, Mark Mueller, when I was an investigator. An attorney who is aligned with the organization ‘Trial Lawyers for Public Justice’, Mark has stood by me when other lawyer friends wanted nothing to do with me (after it became clear who I was engaged in a fight with.) ‘Alpha’ draws its origin from my investigations of the early 1990s for Mark on behalf of Blackfeet Indians, when I’d initially uncovered crimes by the big oil company CHEVRON (which employs criminals rings comprised of bought off government employees to achieve its goals of circumventing laws) and eventually led to my problem with Condoleezza Rice and a whole host of intelligence agency related criminals .. It was years later I named this case that refused to go away and leave me alone the ‘alpha’ investigative case.

Along the way of working ‘alpha’, I’d teamed up with Mikey Weinstein, a former White House attorney who founded the six time Nobel Peace Prize nominated Military Religious Freedom Foundation and has worked together with myself fighting some of the most criminal people in the world. Mikey’s project is mostly tied to Pentagon. We have exchanged information and help develop each other’s projects. Mikey’s Military Religious Freedom Foundation project involving the Pentagon, has overlap with the ‘alpha’ project involving intelligence agencies.

The result of the ‘alpha’ investigation is clear. Corporate organized crime in the military-industrial complex fused with institutions in NATO and rogue elements in intelligence agencies (with the beyond Orwellian twist of ‘Christian Dominionism’ thrown in), together form an international ‘deep state’ dedicated to the subversion and eventual overthrow and/or control of western democratic institutions. The German government and law enforcement is now fully aware of ‘alpha’ elements that have operated exterior to the parameters of law in Germany. Incidental to this, alpha’s operational command and control centered in the USA has had the German political establishment intimidated at the highest levels.

A very politically savvy German who’d been deeply involved with the early developments of what became the ‘alpha’ investigative project and has kept himself informed on subsequent developments over the years, is of the opinion the German government is boxed in or cornered at the present time related to ‘alpha.’ I agree. It is my own opinion information enough has been developed in relation to ‘alpha’ to simply let it stand as positioned at the present time and see what develops of its own accord.

With the German government well aware of all the necessary facts concerning ‘alpha’, from police at the local level to the top politicians in Germany, there is really little more to accomplish. The ‘alpha’ investigative result cannot stay swept under the rug indefinitely, too many people now know what is happening, and ultimately, I have little control over when it breaks into the open or how it will develop subsequently. This will have to do with any remaining institutions concerning the rule of law which have not yet been co-opted by the criminal enterprise behind ‘alpha.’ It is the undeniable responsibility of these institutions to take the information developed surrounding ‘alpha’ forward; towards restoration of an authentic constitutional order.

I am now in process of closing the ‘alpha’ project. I’m tired beyond belief but feel what I’ve managed to now is solid accomplishment, only needing time to see a result. Wrapping up the small details, separating the political from the personal and relocating my life to sane society should be accomplished over the coming months.

I understand and have been comfortable with my circumstance in Germany in relation to balancing police elements who have been friendly to me, against the cowardly, ruling politicians at the top who only (apparently under any circumstance) wish I would go away. But I have no idea what I will be stepping into in future as I will be relocating. My best guess is I will be largely left alone by the corrupted political institutions and related criminal elements in the several intelligence agencies, having badly burned them on multiple occasions, as they should have learned by now to leave myself to preferred occupation writing on ancient Native American philosophy, children’s and folk literature, and meanwhile cultivating my growing positive allergy to geo-political intrigue.

For my stalkers, those who’ve sent me death threats and the ones who’ve actually tried to take me out, for those of you who are too stupid to give up, I will be living with two sisters in a super-sweet, non-western cultural arrangement and a good place to redirect your search would be to one of the several thousands of yurts scattered across remote Mongolia….

For the rest of you, my blessings and best wishes for a future sans the world blowing itself up!
