Forget The New World Order; Here’s Who Really Runs The World

(ANTIMEDIA) For decades, extreme ideologies on both the left and the right have clashed over the conspiratorial concept of a shadowy secret government pulling the strings on the world’s heads of state and captains of industry.

The phrase New World Order is largely derided as a sophomoric conspiracy theory entertained by minds that lack the sophistication necessary to understand the nuances of geopolitics. But it turns out the core idea — one of deep and overarching collusion between Wall Street and government with a globalist agenda — is operational in what a number of insiders call the “Deep State.”

In the past couple of years, the term has gained traction across a wide swath of ideologies. Former Republican congressional aide Mike Lofgren says it is the nexus of Wall Street and the national security state — a relationship where elected and unelected figures join forces to consolidate power and serve vested interests. Calling it “the big story of our time,” Lofgren says the deep state represents the failure of our visible constitutional government and the cross-fertilization of corporatism with the globalist war on terror.

“It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street,” he explained.

Even parts of the judiciary, namely the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, belong to the deep state.

How does the deep state operate?

A complex web of revolving doors between the military-industrial-complex, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley consolidates the interests of defense contracts, banksters, military actions, and both foreign and domestic surveillance intelligence.

According to Mike Lofgren and many other insiders, this is not a conspiracy theory. The deep state hides in plain sight and goes far beyond the military-industrial complex President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about in his farewell speech over fifty years ago.

While most citizens are at least passively aware of the surveillance state and collusion between the government and the corporate heads of Wall Street, few people are aware of how much the intelligence functions of the government have been outsourced to privatized groups that are not subject to oversight or accountability. According to Lofgren, 70% of our intelligence budget goes to contractors.

Moreover, while Wall Street and the federal government suck money out of the economy, relegating tens of millions of people to food stamps and incarcerating more people than China — a totalitarian state with four times more people than us — the deep state has, since 9/11, built the equivalent of three Pentagons, a bloated state apparatus that keeps defense contractors, intelligence contractors, and privatized non-accountable citizens marching in stride.

After years of serving in Congress, Lofgren’s moment of truth regarding this matter came in 2001. He observed the government appropriating an enormous amount of money that was ostensibly meant to go to Afghanistan but instead went to the Persian Gulf region. This, he says, “disenchanted” him from the groupthink, which, he says, keeps all of Washington’s minions in lockstep.

Groupthink — an unconscious assimilation of the views of your superiors and peers — also works to keep Silicon Valley funneling technology and information into the federal surveillance state. Lofgren believes the NSA and CIA could not do what they do without Silicon Valley. It has developed a de facto partnership with NSA surveillance activities, as facilitated by a FISA court order.

Now, Lofgren notes, these CEOs want to complain about foreign market share and the damage this collusion has wrought on both the domestic and international reputation of their brands. Under the pretense of pseudo-libertarianism, they helmed a commercial tech sector that is every bit as intrusive as the NSA. Meanwhile, rigging of the DMCA intellectual property laws — so that the government can imprison and fine citizens who jailbreak devices — behooves Wall Street. It’s no surprise that the government has upheld the draconian legislation for 15 years.

It is also unsurprising that the growth of the corporatocracy aids the deep state. The revolving door between government and Wall Street money allows top firms to offer premium jobs to senior government officials and military yes-men. This, says Philip Giraldi, a former counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer for the CIA, explains how the Clintons left the White House nearly broke but soon amassed $100 million. It also explains how former general and CIA Director David Petraeus, who has no experience in finance, became a partner at the KKR private equity firm, and how former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell became Senior Counselor at Beacon Global Strategies.

Wall Street is the ultimate foundation for the deep state because the incredible amount of money it generates can provide these cushy jobs to those in the government after they retire. Nepotism reigns supreme as the revolving door between Wall Street and government facilitates a great deal of our domestic strife:

“Bank bailouts, tax breaks, and resistance to legislation that would regulate Wall Street, political donors, and lobbyists. The senior government officials, ex-generals, and high level intelligence operatives who participate find themselves with multi-million dollar homes in which to spend their retirement years, cushioned by a tidy pile of investments,” said Giraldi.

How did the deep state come to be?

Some say it is the evolutionary hybrid offspring of the military-industrial complex, while others say it came into being with the Federal Reserve Act, even before the First World War. At this time, Woodrow Wilson remarked,

“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

This quasi-secret cabal pulling the strings in Washington and much of America’s foreign policy is maintained by a corporatist ideology that thrives on deregulation, outsourcing, deindustrialization, and financialization. American exceptionalism, or the great “Washington Consensus,” yields perpetual war and economic imperialism abroad while consolidating the interests of the oligarchy here at home.

Mike Lofgren says this government within a government operates off tax dollars but is not constrained by the constitution, nor are its machinations derailed by political shifts in the White House. In this world — where the deep state functions with impunity — it doesn’t matter who is president so long as he or she perpetuates the war on terror, which serves this interconnected web of corporate special interests and disingenuous geopolitical objectives.

“As long as appropriations bills get passed on time, promotion lists get confirmed, black (i.e., secret) budgets get rubber stamped, special tax subsidies for certain corporations are approved without controversy, as long as too many awkward questions are not asked, the gears of the hybrid state will mesh noiselessly,” according to Mike Lofgren in an interview with Bill Moyers.

Interestingly, according to Philip Giraldi, the ever-militaristic Turkey has its own deep state, which uses overt criminality to keep the money flowing. By comparison, the U.S. deep state relies on a symbiotic relationship between banksters, lobbyists, and defense contractors, a mutant hybrid that also owns the Fourth Estate and Washington think tanks.

Is there hope for the future?

Perhaps. At present, discord and unrest continues to build. Various groups, establishments, organizations, and portions of the populace from all corners of the political spectrum, including Silicon Valley, Occupy, the Tea Party, Anonymous, WikiLeaks, anarchists and libertarians from both the left and right, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and others are beginning to vigorously question and reject the labyrinth of power wielded by the deep state.

Can these groups — can we, the people — overcome the divide and conquer tactics used to quell dissent? The future of freedom may depend on it.

Nightmare For Hillary: Big Obama Admin Revelation Just Gave Gowdy More Ammo To Go After Her

Hillary Clinton’s email controversy took yet another turn for the worse for her, when the State Department confirmed on Friday that it had discovered more work-related emails Clinton failed to turn over. The emails will be turned over to the Select Committee on Benghazi.

The Washington Times reports: “A senior State Department official said about 925 emails of discussions that relate or refer to Libya would be delivered to the committee, explaining that the new email were discovered during a second review of the email the roughly 35,000 emails that Mrs. Clinton turned over to the department earlier this year.”

Additionally, the AP is reporting that the State Department has a chain of work-related emails between Gen. David Petraeus and Clinton dating from her first few days in office, which had not been turned over. The emails reportedly were turned over by the Defense Department to the State Department’s inspector general. At that time, she was using neither a State Department email address, nor one from The chain ends on Feb. 1, with less than 10 emails back-and-forth.

Clinton has stated that the emails dated before Mar. 9 were on a Blackberry to which she no longer has access.

“The officials weren’t authorized to speak on the matter and demanded anonymity. But State Department spokesman John Kirby confirmed that the agency received the emails in the ‘last several days’ and that they ‘were not previously in the possession of the department,’” according to the AP. 

Though the emails do not appear to contain highly classified material, they do contradict Clinton’s previous claim made to the press that she had turned over all work-related emails.

Clinton’s campaign press secretary, Brian Fallon, took to Twitter on Friday to argue that his candidate only meant she turned over all work-related emails from “”

In response to a federal judge’s order to affirm in writing that she had turned over all work-related emails, Clinton signed a statement which reads, in part:

I, Hillary Rodham Clinton, declare under penalty of perjury that the following is true and correct:

While I do not know what information may be “responsive” for purposes of this law suit, I have directed that all my e-mails on in my custody that were or potentially were federal records be provided to the State Department, and on information and belief, this has been done.

As reported by Western Journalism, the State Department confirmed in June that multiple emails regarding Libya and Benghazi, between Clinton and friend Sidney Blumenthal, were also not turned over to the agency.

Clinton is scheduled to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi on October 22.

FBI Makes Massive Announcement About The Emails Hillary Thought Were Gone Forever

The FBI has recovered work-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State as it investigates the contents of the private server the Democratic presidential candidate used for her communications.

“If the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation has now recovered work-related emails, official emails that were deleted, this would be a game-changer.” Ed Henry reported on Fox News’ The Kelly File. He explained that Clinton has long claimed that she only deleted 30,000 personal emails from the server; so if the FBI recovers work-related emails, that would suggest that Clinton was not telling the truth. Questions about the controversy have dogged Clinton’s campaign for months.

The FBI is examining the server to see whether any information, including classified data, was mishandled. Clinton has said the emails she deleted from the server involved personal matters.

However, both Bloomberg News and the New York Times reported Wednesday that work-related emails had been recovered on the server as well and that recovering the messages had not been overly difficult. The contents of the messages were not released. The FBI’s full investigation of the server and its contents is expected to take several months.

The revelations comes a day after the Washington Post reported that the State Department had asked Clinton to turn over work-related emails from her time as Secretary of State after learning about her use of a private server. The report differs from Clinton’s version that she turned over the emails due to a routine record-keeping request.

When asked about that report Tuesday, Clinton stuck to her guns.

“You’re telling me something I don’t know,” Clinton said. “All I know is what I have said. What I have said is it was allowed. The State Department has confirmed that. The same letter went to, as far as I know, my predecessors, and I’m the one who said, ‘Hey, I’ll be glad to help.’”

Hillary Clinton – Presidential Material Or War Criminal?

Seventy-one Syrians were found suffocated to death in a truck near Vienna, Austria, on August 27th. The refrigerated poultry truck was found on the A4 highway not far from the airport. The deaths and thousands more like them were caused by the Obama Administration’s Middle East policy that was driven by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her chief aide, Huma Abedin.

Austria is a nation of just eight million people. That is just a little less than the population of New York City, yet this little nation has the highest per capita immigration rate of any European nation. This is quite a burden on such a small nation. Recently, heart wrenching photos have shown dead children and throngs of Syrians pushing past European borders to reach the Promised Land in Germany and elsewhere. Germany expects 800,000 this year.

The Obama Administration, despite causing the refugee crisis with its overthrow of secular governments in the Middle East, has jailed twenty Iraqi Christians who managed to escape to the United States seeking asylum. The Austrian and German governments welcomed refugees. Austria has made an effort to bring into its borders the persecuted Christians of Syria. Last year, there was an airlift of 500 Syrian Christians from Turkey to Austria.

Riots in Hungary, death off the Italian coast: Every day, there are stories of “immigrants” from North Africa and the Middle East drowning when their small, overcrowded boats sink. Recently, a photo was shown around the world of a young boy’s lifeless body being picked up where it had washed ashore on a beach in Turkey. There have been riots at the main train station in Budapest, Hungary, as refugees from Syria and Iraq demand to board trains for more wealthy European nations. There is talk even from Germany’s Chancellor Merkel that borders may have to be reestablished inside of Europe to maintain order.

Global warming is not the reason hundreds of thousands are fleeing Libya, Yemen, Iraq and Syria. Sadly, the reason for the greatest immigrant crisis since World War II is Hillary Clinton; and the emails she tried to hide are beginning to give up the details.

In March of this year, I wrote an article entitled “Hillary Clinton’s Grand Strategy for the Middle East,” which was published in numerous places including WND.COM and Western Journalism. In that lengthy article, I gave the details and sources of Hillary Clinton’s plan as Secretary of State to install the “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood into power throughout the Middle East. The idiocy of the plot undoubtedly came from her longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin, a Muslim whose family was deeply involved in organizing the Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim Sisterhood in the United States.

Under the plan, the Muslim Brotherhood, with American help, would bring “moderate” Islamist rule to North Africa and the Middle East and stop Islamization by more radical elements. We all saw how moderate the Muslim Brotherhood was in the short time they ruled Egypt. The burned churches and abused women are a testament to their “moderation.”

Wiping the hard drive of the personal server Hillary Clinton used for State Department business removed the details of Huma Abedin and this idiotic Muslim Brotherhood strategy that has done so much humanitarian damage. The life lost and the destruction of thousands of years of human history by the Clinton/Abedin legacy had to be hidden. Among those emails is proof that Ambassador Stevens was acting as gun runner for Hillary Clinton when he was murdered in Libya.

Hillary Clinton wants to be the President of the United States and planned to run while Secretary of State. She destroyed the state of Libya to show how tough she would be as a world leader. Her plan was to install the Muslim Brotherhood. Instead, she birthed a failed state that became the base of several well-armed Islamic terrorist organizations. One of those, a branch of the Islamic State, beheaded twenty-one Egyptian Christian workers on a beach in Libya in February of this year.

Emails linking the Benghazi deaths of American embassy personnel in 2011 and the transfer of Libyan arms for “moderate” Syrian rebels were also probably among the “personal” emails she had wiped off the server. But the evidence of her total incompetence on foreign affairs is available elsewhere. The name of the ship that was used to carry weapons from Libya’s old arsenal to Turkey bound for “moderate” Syrian rebels is known. Some of those heavy weapons may have been used to route the Iraqi Army out of Mosul.

When Hillary Clinton was sworn in as Secretary of State, the Middle East was more or less stable, and fighting had been greatly reduced in Iraq. By the time Hillary Clinton left that office, five national governments had been toppled; and three of those, including Libya, became failed states. Her support of the Saudi plan to topple President Assad in Syria led to birth of the ISIL and the loss of the entire north of Iraq. As a result, Iran has been able to spread its influence into Iraq to protect Shiite interests.

Is it any wonder the Hillary server hard drive was wiped clean? If Hillary Clinton prays, which I doubt, she is probably on her knees every night asking God to wipe the hard drives of the State Department servers as well.

Another Hillary Clinton aide, the man who set up her private server to conduct government business for the State Department of the United States, has stated that he will plead the Fifth if called to testify about the server.

Bryan Pagliano, an aide to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who helped set up the server system, was asked to testify about the server by the House Select Committee on Benghazi this month. His legal counsel has now told the committee that he would plead the Fifth Amendment, refusing to answer any and all questions, if he were compelled to testify.

The Washington Post reported that Pagliano had worked as the IT director on Clinton’s 2008 campaign, and was then tasked by Clinton to oversee the installation of her server to handle her correspondence while Secretary of State. This was done before and after he was employed by the State Department in 2009. While doing the setup of the server system for Clinton’s State Department correspondence, he was apparently being paid by a political action committee tied to her. Lastly, Clinton admitted to paying him $5,000 herself. Who got Pagliano the IT job at the State Department? I think we can figure that out.

The transfer of weapons from Muammar Gadhafi’s captured arsenal in Libya to some Syrian “moderate” rebels (who turned out to be Islamist killers) was clearly illegal and could not be discussed using the State Department e-mail system because of the possibility of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit discovery. The fly-by-night e-mail system was clearly constructed to circumvent the law and shield Hillary Clinton from discovery of various illegal acts, the least of which were probably trading favors from the Administration for donations to the Clinton foundation.

The Clinton e-mail system, operated out of a bathroom closet in an apartment, was far less secure than that of the recently hacked Ashley Madison marital cheating site. Although American intelligence agencies (TAO) employ thousands of hackers to attack Russian and Chinese sites for information, little is spent on protecting systems in the United States. Copies of the “wiped” Clinton emails probably exist … Perhaps the best way to obtain these would be for the Congress to ask the TAO to hack Chinese or Russian intelligence agencies for them–or better yet, just ask Edward Snowden for copies.

Behind the shrouded-in-mystery relationship of Hillary Clinton and Human Abedin lies the blood of the innocent in the Middle East. That blood is on the hands of the planner, Hillary Clinton. It was her Grand Strategy for peace in the Middle East that has caused the downfall of nations, the rise of the Islamic State, mass executions and sex slavery, economic devastation for tens of millions and an unending immigration crisis in Europe. The question should not be whether Hillary Clinton should be President of the United States–but rather if she should face the International Criminal Court as a war criminal for the misery she has wrought upon the world.

6 Stunning Words Were Just Discovered In Hillary’s Emails That Look AWFUL For Her

It has been revealed that during her time as secretary of state, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ordered subordinates to delete an email once it had been read and not forward it to anyone.

On Jan. 30, 2010, Clinton emailed her then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills and U.S. Agency for International Development administrator Rajiv Shah about an unknown topic with the subject line, “Pls don’t forward my last email.”

Cheryl and Raj–I sent you emails [redacted] before removing their email info so pls do not forward to anyone and delete after reading. Thx.

Within minutes, Shah replied, indicating he would gladly comply with Clinton’s request:

Of course. I will not forward any of your emails and I appreciate your sending notes on issues you want to make sure we are tracking!

This email is one of over 7,000 released by the State Department Monday evening as part of a court-ordered release of Clinton’s emails from her private server. More than 25 percent of her emails have been disclosed so far.

A Quinnipiac University poll released last week found the words most often associated with the former first lady are: “liar,” “dishonest” and “untrustworthy.”

Social media reacted quickly to the news about this email:
