Recently, the right-wing media, from Infowars to Fox News, has been bandying the previously obscure term “deep state” about in reference to an alleged attempt within the executive bureaucracy and intelligence community to sabotage and undermine the Trump administration and its agenda. (This strategy, if it even exists, apparently isn’t working at all whatsoever since it hasn’t materially damaged Trump in any way and has only served to further rile up his already overwrought devotees.) Their gullible viewers have fully bought into the theater and truly believe that they’re peering into deep state machinations like out of a spy movie.
The media’s usage of the term “deep state” is almost always incorrect, since the deep state is framed by them as an exclusively “liberal” or (for the civic nationalist) “globalist” Obama holdover circle that exists almost entirely within the elected government’s bureaucracy and intelligence community. The reality is quite different – the real deep state is a multifaceted collage of interrelated cliques and factions (whose interests align more often than less) that interface and achieve their goals through insider corporations and financial institutions, the intelligence community/military, media, the scientific-academic establishment and non-governmental organizations/think tanks.
Political cartoonist Ben Garrison has even gone so far as to suggest that the deep state is (metaphorically) holding the American government (as a whole?) at knife-point:
Clearly the implication is that a government or nation nominally headed by the Trump clique (and presumably on the up and up given Garrison’s consistent slavish glorification of Trump) is being assaulted by a shadowy faction led by liberals and RINOs (very Reaganesque). This is simply bogus – there is substantial evidence to suggest that many components of the deep state (with which Trump has been adjoined his entire adult life) are bolstering Trump and that the media circus surrounding this apparently weak and ineffectual coup against him is merely a smokescreen orchestrated by various deep state elements to hide Trump’s insider credentials and establish him as a political outsider to the masses.
Firstly, it’s important to establish that this is simply a particularly sensational and dramatic iteration of the ages-old propaganda technique of framing your “side” or man as being in opposition to the establishment (typically represented by the incumbent administration’s party), which has been used recently by the Obama and Bill Clinton campaigns. Although Democrats can effectively deploy the technique, they simply cannot seem to match the Republicans’ mastery of the strategy. The Goldwater, Reagan and Trump campaigns have, with this propaganda strategy, stirred up populist fervor by engineering their candidate an anti-establishment persona more effectively than any others in modern history.
The problem is that it’s virtually always a complete and utter sham. Jewish Barry Goldwater was (like Trump) bolstered in the media from day one and covertly supported by the right-wing/national security establishment anchored (at that time) by the American Security Council and John Birch Society, both of which were later credited with having been the driving force behind Reagan’s candidacy for president and, while in office, his foreign policy.  Ross Perot and Bill Clinton were both shams. Perot, a consummate political insider and close friend of Oliver North’s exposed to some of the US government’s darkest secrets, was the beneficiary of favorable treatment from the media (at one point being allowed back onto the debate stage after dropping out of the 1992 race) and was neck deep in intelligence connections through his company Electronic Data Systems, which had lucrative government IT & management outsourcing contracts and typified CIA involvement in the Dallas business community. He was in fact so tied to intelligence that he was placed on Reagan’s Presidential Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (a group of civilian presidential appointees that advise the president on intelligence and covert operations matters) and regularly attended AFIO (Association of Former Intelligence Officers)/OSS Society meetings.
Bill Clinton, who informed on radical leftist and anti-war groups for the CIA while at Oxford, was a purely engineered product whose political career was enabled and coaxed along by deep state billionaire Arkansas wheeler-dealer Jackson Stephens (among others, such as the Tyson family and the Dixie Mafia), who was seemingly involved in nearly every major conspiracy in the 80s and early 90s from BCCI to CIA drug running to the PROMIS scandal.
Clinton (like nearly all presidents) spent the entirety of his presidency as a lapdog of the deep state interests that propelled him into the governorship of Arkansas then eventually the Oval Office and was largely confined to a merely ceremonial position by a wall of executive bureaucracy while he philandered around. Hillary was an immediate handler of Bill’s, but was not profoundly powerful as many on the alt-right (which was spun into a frenetic hysteria over Hillary that it’s barely gotten over by the CNP-crafted Trump media complex) would have you believe – she was really more of a trinket paraded around on national television to garner support for the Clintons from women more than anything else, much to her displeasure. Bill even reportedly remarked to senior White House reporter Sarah McClendon that “there’s a government inside the government, and I don’t control it.” [3, 4, 5]
Barack Obama’s background is more well-hidden and obscure, but he almost certainly comes from an intelligence background. His supposed father was a pro-American anti-Communist agitator in Africa and essentially everyone on his mother’s side, including his mother herself and going all the way back to his maternal grandfather, appears to have worked with or for the CIA and/or military intelligence. Barack’s first job out of college was at a CIA-front import-export company in New York City called Business International. [6, 7, 8]
According to John Taylor Gatto, an expert on elite educational institutions in the United States, Barack Obama displays highly sophisticated speech patterns (use of cadence, meter, etc.) and a uniquely subtle, suave, sophisticated and some would say inscrutable manner about him reminiscent of intelligence operatives and those who have received extremely rare esoteric speech and behavior training.
Trump, with a laundry list of “deep state” connections a mile long, is no different than any of the aforementioned, at least to anyone familiar with his unwashed history. Friedrich Trump, Trump’s grandfather, immigrated to the US from Germany and made his fortune operating brothels and opium dens in Seattle and British Columbia during the west’s mineral rush, after which he began buying up property in Queens. Donald’s father, Fred Trump, was not only a (corrupt and cronyistic) real estate developer, but was also at the center of the New York power-elite, having been a highly influential member of the Tammany Hall Democratic machine, Madison Democratic Club and Knights of the Round Table. Fred was also an enthusiastic supporter of Zionism and worked in concert with fellow New York power broker and Zionist Bunny Lindenbaum to expand specifically Talmudic Jewish influence in Brooklyn and Queens. 
Fred’s network extended beyond Brooklyn, reaching clear up to the mayor of New York Abe Beame, Roy Cohn, Bunny Lindenbaum, legendary publicist Howard Rubenstein, assembly speaker Stanley Steingut, well-connected bureaucrat Mike Bailkin and various New York-area mafias. Fred utilized these extensive connections to procure preferable government treatment (mostly from the Federal Housing Authority) for himself and later Donald in the form of subsidies and lucrative no-bid contracts. Donald, after having been aided, underwritten and bailed out by his father innumerable times, mirrored Fred in his business dealings and political relations.  Trump is as defined by his life-long connection to the same New York elite (Roy Cohn clique, NY politicians, Russian-Jewish and Italian mafias, CIA, international finance, etc.) his father broke into as he is by his career as a real estate developer. In fact, the two are inextricable.
The Cohn Connection
Perhaps the most telling and important of Trump’s connections is his decades long affiliation and intimate friendship with his self-described mentor, Jewish pederast Roy Cohn. Cohn made his name as Joseph McCarthy’s chief counselor and prosecutor (hired on the recommendation of J. Edgar Hoover, who was blackmailed later in life by James Jesus Angleton, Meyer Lansky and possibly Cohn himself with evidence of his homosexuality) and then later became one of the most powerful political fixers and attorneys in New York.
Cohn was highly placed in the right-wing political power structure as a point-man between Republican politicians and the intelligence community, having been one of the most powerful figures in the John Birch Society (whose spiritual successors were fully behind Trump from the beginning) and involved in advising Republican presidents (particularly Nixon), orchestrating right-wing media campaigns with the White House, European spy-hunting rings (which had among its ranks several former high-ranking Nazis), CIA-Mossad front company Permindex, pedophilic intelligence blackmail rings and liaising with almost every major New York crime family of his time. [10, 11, 12]
It is well-known that Cohn was acquainted with pretty well near everyone in New York and Washington and in large part ran New York’s notoriously carnal and degenerate nightlife circuit (anchored by his club, Studio 54) for the better part of half a century. However, the true extent of his abasement and treachery is more well hidden. Probably the darkest and most diabolical part of Cohn’s history was his orchestration of pedophilic blackmail rings in league with American intelligence (under the guise of fighting communism). Cohn has connections to two infamous child sex rings – the DC callboy ring and Franklin scandal.
…According to the former head of the vice squad for one of America’s biggest cities, ‘Cohn’s job was to run the little boys. Say you had an admiral, a general, a congressman, who did not want to go along with the program. Cohn’s job was to set them up, then they would go along. Cohn told me that himself.'”
Cohn was a good friend of Craig Spence and together with top CIA and Army men, as well as politicians and businessmen, he once threw his birthday party at Spence’s house. Spence was later investigated for running a CIA-sanctioned homosexual and pedophile entrapment ring at his house with operations going straight up to the White House. 
Cohn reportedly used the famous Plaza Hotel in Midtown Manhattan (eventually bought by Donald Trump, who may have been an involved party) as a staging location for blackmail/entrapment operations:
…When New York attorney John Klotz began to investigate Roy Cohn on behalf of a client…declassified New York government files and spadework by a private detective substantiated the allegation that there was indeed a ‘blue suite’ at the Plaza, Suite 233. ‘Roy Cohn was providing protection,’ Klotz discovered. ‘There were a bunch of pedophiles involved. That’s where Cohn got his power from—blackmail. 
To no one’s surprise, Cohn was wretched and depraved in his personal life as well. He was a prodigious consumer of illegal drugs and a rampaging sex-addicted homosexual pedophile who Wayne Barrett (who knew Cohn personally) described as a “chicken hawk after little boys”, “incandescent evil” and having given off a “Satanic feeling”. Descriptions of various aspects of his personal life and bizarre behaviors are literally blood curdling:
His [Roy Cohn’s] life was spent in a cocoon of filth and disrepair. “The expression used to describe Roy’s abodes time and time again was ‘shit house,’ ” writes von Hoffman. His bedroom was decorated with frogs: frog drawings, frog paintings, frog decals, frog patterns on sheets, on nightshirts, on wallpaper, froggies everywhere; it was a room “bulging with stuffed animals, in this enormous turn-of-the-century townhouse, the plaster cracking, the paint all but gone from the walls, leaks squirting, and drafts finding their way through the ill-attended cracks.”
His table manners were notoriously foul. He would eat from other people’s plates, using his fingers, dipping his fingers into their gravy. He craved sweets but feared getting fat, so, as one boyfriend recalled, “In these fancy restaurants he’d order the yummy desserts, eat them and then spit them out into a napkin.” 
Trump himself credits the warped Cohn with having been his foremost advisor (in other words, Cohn brought Trump to a higher political understanding, something that’s utterly crucial for anyone to succeed in high-level Manhattan business) in both his business and personal life. However, any remaining unpublished evidence of the full extent of his relationship with Roy Cohn was lost forever after the transcript of Trump’s testimony at Cohn’s disbarment hearing was lost in a sectional warehouse fire that occurred only a few months before Trump announced his candidacy.
The Trump-CIA-Mossad-Mafia nexus
It is popularly know even among mainstream politicos that Donald Trump has conducted extensive business with “the mafia”. However, the mob isn’t even the half of the story – everywhere the mob appears in Trump’s past (which has usually been in the form of the international Jewish criminal syndicate), the intelligence community and international criminal right-wing Zionism are at its hip. In fact, Trump’s entire career in real estate has been framed by his connection to the John Birch/Cohn clique, mafia, CIA, etc. Perhaps no business of Trump’s exemplifies the kind of operations he’s involved with and people he runs with than Resorts International, a CIA-Mossad backed casino holding company Trump had a significant ownership stake in and for whom Trump served as little more than a colorful front man.
Resorts International originated as a CIA front company masquerading as a legitimate paint store chain whose purpose was almost exclusively to launder money for American and Israeli intelligence with the help of mafias mostly affiliated with legendary money launderer and Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky. Later, the company was spun-off into Resorts International as its primary business became the ownership and operation of casinos and resorts used to launder money for deniable CIA & Mossad operations. Among its financial backers were Meyer Lansky, the CIA and military connected Mellons, David Rockefeller, Switzerland-based Mossad money launderer Tibor Rosenbaum and the Rothschilds. In the late ’80s, Trump took over as the titular head of the company after previous frontman James Crosby’s passing. 
Other interesting dealings of Trump’s are his casino/resort development deals with various mafia figures (most notably the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino and Taj Mahal, both of which were involved with money laundering and purchased from associates of Meyer Lansky) and acquisition of the Trump Building in Lower Manhattan whereby he purchased the building at a discount as a result of the fact that it was in limbo – the Trump Building was secretly owned through a front by Ferdinand Marcos, whose assets had been frozen (coincidentally enough, Paul Manafort was an advisor of Marcos’). [16, 17, 18]
The 1970s saw the reduction of all major established East Coast crime families (primarily Italian) to nothing, which cleared the path for the monopolization of organized crime by the Russian-Jewish mafia in the late ’70s through the ’80s. Interestingly enough, Rudy Giuliani, a life long confidant of Trump’s, was instrumental in taking down several Italian New York and Philadelphia crime families, thus (apparently intentionally) leaving a vacuum for the already formidable existing Russian-Jewish criminal elements. 
As the Russian mafia rose to prominence in the ’80s, Trump’s personal and business associations in the criminal world adjusted accordingly, hence his later affiliation with seemingly every Russian of any relevance at all (many of them are Jewish as well) – Israeli citizen, Alfa Group oligarch and CFR member Mikhail Fridman, CIA, MI6 and KGB cavorting oligarch Roman Abramovich, corrupt fertilizer billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, CIA-compromised mobster Felix Sater (who is as a senior advisor to Trump and maintains an office in Trump Tower, where his employer Bayrock Group is based) and Ukrainian born Israeli citizen and Giuliani-backing “businessman” Sam Kislin, among plenty others. So not only does Trump have numerous connections to the Pilgrims Society/Anglo-American establishment and Russian-Jewish elements in the US, but also to many of the oligarchs who constitute the covert underground KGB-successor government that survived the break-up of the USSR and controls Russia from behind the scenes to this day. 
Of course, Trump’s association with questionable Jewish figures doesn’t stop with Russian oligarchs and mobsters. His daughter, Ivanka, converted to Judaism after marrying real-
estate heir Jared Kushner (who has become a key operational chief in the Trump clique and somewhat of an ambassador for his clueless, unrefined father-in-law), himself the son of the Clinton-backing real estate swindler (redundant?), convicted felon and Zionist Charles Kushner. (Most of his other children are married to Jews as well.) Zionist Michael Glassner, formerly a high-level director at AIPAC (a central part of the Israel lobby) and engineer of the deal that gave the lease of the World Trade Center to Larry Silverstein, was a deputy campaign manager and advisor of Trump’s. Glassner has a long history of “handling” high profile Republican politicians such as Bob Dole, Sarah Palin and George W. Bush during election season. 
Dirty Money, Drugs & Illicit Sex
Two of Trump’s more explicit ties to drug running and money laundering (favorite pastimes of the CIA and Mossad) specifically lie in Joseph Weichselbaum, Tevfik Arif and Adnan Khashoggi. Weichselbaum was a thrice-convicted felon and cocaine trafficker who managed the company (owned by Weichselbaum’s brother) that operated and maintained helicopters flying high-rollers to Trump’s casinos in Atlantic City. As Weichselbaum was facing yet another drug conviction, Trump vouched for him in court, asserting he was an upstanding citizen, which was a bizarre move for a casino mogul since any association with felons could have put Trump’s New Jersey casino license in jeopardy. Despite this, Trump continued to associate with Weichselbaum and even went as far to give him an apartment in one of Trump’s Manhattan properties to live in after he was released from prison. Trump’s casino license was never revoked despite his blatant violations of New Jersey law regarding casino operators, but this isn’t surprising given the fact that Trump’s casino license was, in an unprecedented fashion, granted immediately without any vetting and apparently protected by behind the scenes players (much like Trump has been his entire life). 
Tevfik Arif, born in what is now Kazakhstan and brought up in the USSR, is the founder and chair of real estate development firm Bayrock Group, which co-developed the Trump SoHo and Trump International Hotel & Tower in both Fort Lauderdale and Phoenix and now has its headquarters in Trump Tower. Arif and Bayrock may also be connected to the Gulen movement in Turkey. In 2010, Arif was arrested in Turkey on suspicion of running a human trafficking and prostitution ring involving many high-level Russian, Eastern European, Turkish and Middle Eastern politicians and businessmen (not too dissimilar from Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex ring, which will be discussed later). In 2012, Arif was acquitted on all charges, which is odd because several Turkish newspapers were able to obtain undeniable proof of Arif’s guilt. 
Adnan Khashoggi, probably the most storied globe-trotting high-powered CIA-Mossad collaborating arms/drugs trafficker, money launderer and false-flag facilitator in history (connected to Iran Contra and 9/11), has been uncovered by investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker as an associate of Donald Trump’s whose relation goes far deeper than just having his famed yacht eventually bought by Trump. According to Hopsicker, an informed source of his in Palm Beach has information that Trump gave Khashoggi (who attended his wedding to Marla Maples) shelter from INTERPOL at Mar-A-Lago while Khashoggi was under indictment for defrauding a large Thai bank. Khashoggi has throughout his life been intimately involved with the Cohn-Nixon-Reagan-North-John Birch-CNP clique of “national security” boosters towering behind the artifice that is Donald Trump. 
Of course, any discussion of Trump’s sordid past would be remiss without mention of Jeffrey Epstein, who orchestrated (or, perhaps just managed) a massive pedophilic blackmail ring stretching from the Virgin Islands to Palm Beach to Manhattan that entangled everyone from Trump to Bill Clinton to Ehud Barak to Courtney Love (yes, that Courtney Love). Epstein and his various manipulative female deputies procured underage girls from around the world primarily through modeling agencies (an industry Trump has been involved with – his modeling agency recruits girls as young as 14) and enticements of careers in acting, modeling and fashion. Epstein’s chief aide and most effective procurer was Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of Mossad asset, publishing baron and parliamentarian Robert Maxwell. Ghislaine was responsible for recruiting Virginia Roberts into Epstein’s operation while Roberts was a towel girl at Trump’s Mar-A-Lago. 
Epstein’s homes in Palm Beach and New York contained elaborate covert surveillance systems – hidden CCTV cameras, taps on all landlines within the homes, sophisticated computer network monitoring and high-end security suites installed on all computers, etc. According to the testimony of Larry Visoski, Epstein’s pilot, a dedicated technician who flew in from New Albany, Ohio maintained all surveillance equipment and handled any recorded footage from CCTV cameras. New Albany, a relatively small town outside Columbus, Ohio, happens to be Les Wexner’s residence and is sometimes referred to as ‘Wexley’ after Wexner’s massive Georgian estate. Wexner, another GOP-aligned Russian-Jewish Israel booster and mega-donor, is the long-serving chair and CEO of apparel conglomerate L Brands and was Jeffrey Epstein’s mentor and beneficiary. Epstein’s New York apartment was owned by Wexner and it appears that Wexner was in control of the blackmail material collected at Epstein’s residences, suggesting that Epstein was merely a front for a Wexner-orchestrated blackmail operation, which likely involved American and Israeli intelligence. [25, 26]
Certainly one would imagine that, given Trump’s involvement with Epstein (and Roy Cohn), he’s likely sexually compromised and blackmailed. Although the alt-right and Trump supporters dismiss the possibility that Trump was involved in Epstein’s child sex ring out of hand, there is much evidence to suggest that he was. The most crucial piece of evidence in favor of this is the fact that Trump’s name was circled by Epstein’s Palm Beach butler in Epstein’s contact book as a material witness to or someone directly involved with pedophilia. Trump’s entry in the contact book has probably nearly every phone number of his and his associates at the time listed, meaning Epstein and Trump were likely very close. Mark Epstein, Jeffrey Epstein’s brother, testified to as much (and also exposed the fact that Donald flew on Epstein’s private jet, which was referred to as the “Lolita Express” by Epstein and his sleazy friends). 
A lawsuit brought forth by Katie Johnson alleges that in 1994 she was violently raped by Donald Trump (and death-threated afterwards) when she was 13 years old at a party of Epstein’s in New York. Johnson was seeking a career in modeling at the time and was lured into Epstein’s scene with promises of an avenue into modeling and admission to the Fashion Institute of Technology. Most lambasted the lawsuit as a pathetic partisan attempt to cast aspersion on Donald Trump, which could very well be true given the involvement of former Jerry Springer producer Norm Ludlow (who has a history of peddling dubious stories about celebrities) and anti-Trump conservative agitator Steven Baer in bringing the case to the media.  Despite this, many aspects of the claims in the lawsuit comport with known details of Epstein’s operation (and with Donald Trump’s germophobia) and Johnson’s witness, ‘Tiffany Doe’ (an anonymous name), who was a procurer of Epstein’s, corroborated the story.
After the lawsuit was dropped by Johnson because she allegedly started receiving veritable threats on her life, the notoriously imprecise right-leaning British newspaper/gossip rag Daily Mail published an article (whose only source was conveniently anonymous) asserting that Johnson ‘made it all up’ with virtually no evidence to back up the claim. This, along with the revelation that Johnson had drug problems, put the final nails in the story’s coffin.
However, keep in mind that while this lawsuit and its flaky accuser have issues, it’s ultimately credible because of 1) the inclusion of a witness who accurately describes Epstein and his methods and 2) the fact that the accusation fits with Trump’s pattern of sexual behavior. Notwithstanding Trump’s association with not a few lecherous and sexually depraved people (many of them known to be blackmailers), he’s also been accused of rape several times before (the first and most famous accusation originating from his first wife, Ivana, who conveniently recanted the claim a little over a month after Trump declared his candidacy) and has made lewd and inappropriate comments about underage females, some of them even directed towards his own daughter. [29, 30]
On a related note, Elaine Chao (Trump secretary of transportation), her family and her husband Mitch McConnell appear to be connected to drug trafficking through Chao’s family’s shipping company, despite their pristine public image.
The Deep State & the Election
What’s most interesting about Donald Trump is that he is right at the confluence of two major deep state clans – the radical American right-wing national security establishment epitomized by the secretive John Birch Society scion the Council for National Policy (this circle, along with Israel, is primarily responsible for the Trump media complex)
and the multinational Jewish-Israeli crime syndicate. These two factions have been closely aligned with each other for ages and are heavily represented in the American intelligence community.
Speaking of politically connected corporations, electronic voting machine manufacturers tend to be connected to the Republican Party and the defense establishment. This was popularly known among many after the Bush-Gore vote count fiasco, but apparently slipped the collective conscious after a torrent of mostly phony stories about George Soros and Clinton-connected voting machine companies began being pushed by various alternative media outlets and Fox News.
Diebold, despite the fact that it no longer exists in a voting machine manufacturing capacity (its electronic voting business was sold to ES&S in 2007), is probably the most well-known company that has manufactured voting machines. It was an insider corporation before it began making voting machines and remains one to this day – it originated as a bank vault and physical security system firm which became a major defense contractor before turning to banking automation technology. Today, it is by far the largest ATM manufacturer and among the largest financial/commercial and transaction processing software and systems analysis companies in the world (although it’s not widely advertised, a large part of what Diebold does is very similar to what P-Tech of 9/11 fame did).
An exposition of Diebold voting machine involvement in the 2000 and 2004 Florida and Ohio vote counts and technical breakdown of how those may have happened are beyond the scope of this post, but you can read more about it here and here. Diebold’s former long-time chair and CEO, Walden O’Dell, was a major GOP donor and pledged to the 2004 Bush reelection committee that he was committed to “helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President.”
The largest electronic voting machine manufacturer with over 60% of the American market share is ES&S, based out of unassuming Omaha, Nebraska. The company cemented its leading position in the industry while headed by GOP donor and investment banker Chuck Hagel, who would be elected to the senate then appointed Secretary of Defense under Obama as well as appointed to the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. 
Hart InterCivic, one of the few remaining large voting machine companies, is owned by Bain Consulting Group alumnus and Romney friends from the GOP-boosting and intelligence connected renegade private equity firm, Texas Pacific Capital. 
This of course raises the possibility that electronic vote and election fraud were responsible for Trump’s miraculous win in November of last year. This possibility certainly shouldn’t be dismissed. In 23 out of 28 states that conducted exit polls, the discrepancies between said exit polls and the vote count favored Trump while only 5 favored Clinton, which is suspicious enough on its own. Additionally, in 13 of those 23 states, the discrepancy between the vote count and exit polls exceeded the margin of error of the state’s exit polls, which on this scale is simply unprecedented in US electoral history. In 4 key battleground states which Trump won – Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania (all of which rely heavily on computerized voting systems and which electronically tabulate their final vote count) – there were major discrepancies between the exit polls and vote counts, and only Florida’s discrepancy was less than its exit poll’s margin of error.

All Roads Lead Back to Cohn
Certainly, not all indications of deep state backing of nominal outsider Trump are rooted in obscure history – many involve people and organizations very much alive and well today. The most visible is Roger Stone, a GOP political operative and provocateur who was introduced to Donald Trump by Roy Cohn (and along with Trump was likely involved in Cohn’s sexual blackmail ring) and served as a consultant to the Trump presidential campaign (even after he officially left the campaign).
Stone, currently at the ripe age of 64, got his start working for Nixon’s re-election committee, CREEP as a mere teenager. Right off the bat he proved his worth as a black bag operative by 1) donating funds that he made appear to be from the Young Socialist Alliance under a fake name to Nixon’s GOP rival Pete McCloskey then leaking the receipt to a New Hampshire newspaper and 2) getting a spy loyal to the Nixon campaign hired as Hubert Humphrey’s driver. Officially, Stone was a scheduler with the Nixon campaign, but according to Stone “by night, I was trafficking in the black arts. Nixon’s people were obsessed with intelligence.” 
After Nixon’s departure from the White House and flight back to Southern California, Stone remained loyal to him and served as his “man in Washington” according to Stone, who even has a life-sized tattoo of ever so anti-establishment Richard Nixon on his back.  He then worked on Reagan’s 1980 campaign, where he was introduced to Reagan advisor and loyalist Roy Cohn. According to Stone (who has a tendency to flaunt his filthy maneuverings to interested parties), Roy Cohn gave him a briefcase containing blackmail material (and possibly bribes) for him to deliver to lawyers for New York’s Liberal Party in order to get John B. Anderson the nomination for the Liberal Party, something that would fracture the opposition to Reagan in the state. 
After Reagan’s win in 1980, Stone co-founded political consulting firm Black, Manafort & Stone (the ‘Manafort’ in the name referencing Paul Manafort, another Cohn affiliate introduced to Trump by Cohn) and went on to pull a diversity of dirty tricks for the the Bush I & II, Bob Dole and Arlen Specter campaigns. He aided Bush I’s campaign by having putatively anti-Bush “political outsider” Donald Trump join the race as a Reform Party candidate in order to sabotage Pat Buchanan’s candidacy and helped Bush II’s first campaign by helping to initiate the Brooks Brothers riot that put a stop to the Miami-Dade County vote recount – this is provides a little context for Stone’s counterfeit opposition to the Bush family. Throughout this time, Stone also acted as a lobbyist for Donald Trump’s business interests and as a close advisor of his.  Stone has also dabbled in Democratic political maneuvering as well, at one point directing FBI informant Al Sharpton to join the race for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination in an attempt to undermine Al Gore and set Sharpton up as a punching bag for the conservative wing of the media. 
Today, he is most well-known for his capacity with Israel and CIA connected alternative media figure and pro-Trump hack Alex Jones. Stone seems to set Jones’s agenda (with Jones serving as more or less a mouthpiece) and regularly makes appearances on his show, which has proven to be an incredibly effective outlet for Roger’s baseless claims and blatant disinformation intended to send the conspiracy-aware down fruitless rabbitholes (probably the most famous claim of his being the allegation that former Clinton aide Huma Abedin is a covert radical Islamist). However, his ties to the alternative media run far deeper than just Jones. Stone himself admitted that he has a back-channel line of communication with Julian Assange/Wikileaks, which is a likely intelligence front. Wikileaks has served as a potent vehicle for propaganda advantageous to Donald Trump cleverly framed as “leaked” emails and documents. The leaks may or may not be legitimate – some of the emails have allegedly been verified via authentication of cryptographic signatures attached to all emails, but with Wikileak’s intelligence background, it could very well have knowledge of various proprietary cryptographic hash functions, meaning they could’ve effectively ‘forged’ authentication signatures across many email clients.
Wikileaks’ most notable releases have been:
- The Podesta emails, which sparked the bogus Pizzagate alt-right fever dream which I imagine most are familiar with. Roger Stone probably had prior knowledge that Podesta’s emails would be leaked and may have even been involved in crafting the absurd baseless pizzagate fable (which was expanded upon by legions of 4chan and Reddit “investigators” who rely heavily upon photo analysis, which is about as sound as crime lab hair follicle analysis (in other words, not sound at all). 
- The DNC emails, which attempted to establish that there was high-level collusion between the media and the Clinton campaign/DNC. While a few of the emails do indicate as much, the claims are exaggerated and Wikileaks and its wide-eyed followers of course fails to acknowledge that there was collusion between the media and Trump as well. At CNN, staffers complain of Jeff Zucker (Trump’s self-described friend and “personal booker“) and his insistence on constantly covering Trump. Over at MSNBC, Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and their producers allow Donald Trump to personally dictate what they can and cannot ask him. Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes, who have both been intimately connected to the right-wing power structure since the Nixon years, are both close friends and advisors of Trump’s. The media gifted Trump full control of the news cycle, almost $2 billion in free advertising and massively disproportionate coverage compared to both rival GOP nomination contenders (even before he registered in the polls) and Clinton. On a related note, Roger Stone also likely had advance knowledge of the DNC leaks having privately communicated with DNC hacker Guccifer 2.0 on multiple occasions. [37, 38]
- The laughable ‘Vault 7’ supposed CIA document leak laying out a variety of “CIA” hacking tools. It is a classic limited hangout – all of the hacking techniques, exploits and vulnerabilities in Vault 7 have been known to cybersecurity experts for years prior and some of the content of the documents appears to have been lifted straight off of Reddit. For a real example expose of the American intelligence community’s mind blowing hacking capabilities, see Kaspersky Lab’s report on NSA computer firmware trojans.

Bannon: Trump’s Deep State Handler
A common denominator among many surrounding Trump is membership with the Council for National Policy (CNP), an intensely secretive cabal of mostly neoconservatives from the national security/defense establishment and radical theocratic Christian right that dates back to the early Reagan years and serves as more or less a far-right analog to the liberal-centrist tending Council on Foreign Relations (which Trump and his network have a litany of connections to as well).
First and foremost is Stephen Bannon, Trump’s chief “strategist” and senior White House counselor, who along with Kelly Anne Conway has been a CNP member since at least 2014 according to a leaked membership directory. Bannon, who masquerades as a rabid anti-establishment marauder, has deep roots in the national security and financial establishments. While attending the preeminent spook university, Georgetown to obtain a degree in “national security studies”, Bannon served as a “special assistant” to the Chief of Naval Operations. Any further information on what Bannon did in the Navy is being withheld by the Navy, which cited “undisclosed issues with the service’s personnel archives” as the reason they couldn’t provide specifics as to what Bannon did while serving in the military (clearly, this means that there’s something to hide). 
After graduating from Harvard Business School, Bannon worked in Goldman Sach’s private equity division specializing in media mergers & buyouts then in Hollywood consulting on conservative documentaries and films, one of which was Peter Schweizer’s documentary, Clinton Cash which broke the Clinton Foundation story wide open. Schweizer, a fellow at the right-wing defense establishment hive Hoover Institute (intimately connected to the Stanford Research Institute and Bechtel dynasty), founded the Government Accountability Institute with funding from GOP kingmaker and mega-donor Robert Mercer and the Koch Foundation.
Bannon was a co-founder of Israel-tied Breitbart News along with Andrew Breitbart and Larry Solov and procured substantial funds for the website from the aforementioned Robert Mercer. Mercer, a reticent hedge fund billionaire tied to the NSA through his mathematician business partner James Simon (who donates to Democrats “to hedge” – haha – against Mercer’s backing of Republicans) , is among the many wealthy and powerful people supporting Trump both directly and indirectly through media outlets like Breitbart. Along with funding Breitbart, Mercer was by far the largest donor to the pro-Trump Make American Number 1 PAC. 
What is it with the “anti-establishment” right and defense/intelligence-connected analytics companies?
Mercer’s “big data”/analytics firm, DoD contractor Cambridge Analytica was employed by the Cruz, Trump and pro-Brexit campaigns to conduct sophisticated psychometric research through mining voters’ social media and to manipulate public opinion. Its parent company, London-based SCL Communications, is a government contractor that carries out psychological warfare and “influence operations” in the UK. [40, 41]
Peter Thiel, a German-born billionaire hedge fund owner, businessman and futurist was an early financial backer and public supporter of Trump along with Mercer. Thiel was a lawyer at Sullivan & Cromwell (probably the most powerful law firm in the world) before co-founding PayPal, from which most of his fortune is derived. Thiel was one of the first investors in InQTel-backed Facebook and remains on its board to this day. InQTel (the CIA’s venture capital arm that seems to have had its tentacles in every major software/technology company at some point in their history) also invested heavily in Thiel’s big data/analytics company, Palantir Technologies (named after a fictional glass ball that “sees the future”), which derives almost all of its revenue from CIA, Department of Defense and law enforcement contracts, most of which involve data mining any resources Palantir can get its hands on for the purposes of “counter-terrorism” (code for foreign and domestic surveillance). Surely, Thiel and Palantir have everything to gain from Trump and his administration’s advocacy for the vast expansion of the surveillance state both in scope and scale.
Deep State Administration
As is typical of those in close advisor and counselor positions in the White House, Bannon serves very much as Trump’s “eyes and ears” and handler – he controls the flow of information to the president and decides what’s important for him to know and what isn’t. In the case of Trump, it appears as though he’s essentially clueless as to what’s actually going on in the government – Bannon and White House staffers must make sure that the president only consumes media favorable to him lest he goes off the rails. It’s also quite clear that Bannon, “formerly” with Breitbart News manipulates the president by inserting inflammatory news stories sure to inflame Trump into his daily briefs – this is how the shaky and unproven assertion that the Obama administration surveilled his campaign reached Trump. (Certainly, if the Obama administration wanted to covertly spy on Trump’s campaign for political purposes, they wouldn’t do it through official channels like the FISA court; they would do it in a deniable fashion directly through contacts at intelligence agencies or other organizations capable of that kind of surveillance.) [42, 43]
Trump reportedly spends most of the day watching cable news or reading newspapers. As with Resorts International, The Donald serves as a mere figurehead for public consumption while his behind the scenes sponsors and handlers run the show. Traditionally, important handlers are placed in either the Deputy Secretary of State’s office or in the office of National Security Advisor, although recently this trend has broken down since the days of Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Strobe Talbott, Richard Armitage, Brent Scowcroft, Sandy Berger etc. and we can no longer reliably predict where handlers are placed and must evaluate whether someone in an administration has true power on a case-by-case basis.
The current acting Deputy Secretary of State is Thomas Shannon, an Oxford graduate Obama-era diplomat who survived the purge of State Department officials that occurred during the first months of Trump’s presidency. It is likely that he will be replaced. Initially, neoconservative Israel shill, CNP & CFR member and Iran-Contra conspirator John Bolton was presumed to be the shoe-in Deputy Secretary of State and was apparently the Trump administration’s top pick, but was shot down due to extreme resistance from the rest of the GOP which was wary of Bolton’s high profile. Trump has, however, promised Bolton a position in his administration, and there are plenty high-level offices still vacant. 
The current Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, “former” chair & CEO of insider corporation ExxonMobil, has an entire catalog of deep state ties as well. He’s spent almost as much time face-to-face with Vladimir Putin as Henry Kissinger and is a member of the CFR, CSIS and the powerful Business Council, which according to sociologist William Domhoff is the most powerful non-government organization in the world and “supports the network of corporate control, and influence over the economy, politics, and media.” Word has it that Henry Kissinger and James A. Baker (Bush II secretary of state and Reagan secretary of the treasury) were the two critical people who promoted Tillerson as secretary of state to the Trump administration. Baker was chief legal advisor to George W. Bush during the 2000 election and oversaw the Florida vote recount. On 9/11, Baker met with members of the Bin Laden family at the D.C. Ritz-Carlton for a Carlyle Group board meeting. You would certainly think that given the above facts, the media would be obsessively covering Tillerson and monitoring his every move, but they’ve been conspicuously absent in this regard. [45, 46, 47]
Jim Mattis, current secretary of defense, sits on the boards of defense contractor General Dynamics and biotech “start-up” Theranos, a supremely shady and taciturn company whose board of directors also contains favorites such as Henry Kissinger, George Shultz and Riley Bechtel. Mattis’ deputy, Patrick Shanahan, was formerly a Boeing executive.
H.R. McMaster, a military strategist best known for staging counterinsurgencies during the second Iraq War succeeded disinformation expert and propagandist Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor. McMaster is apparently backed by powerful interests. This is evidenced by the fact that 1) he bucked and criticized his immediate bosses in the military yet wasn’t forced out, an extremely rare feat indicative of protection from above; and 2) was lobbied for by insiders Jim Mattis and John McCain. [44, 48]
However, McMaster’s two female deputies are considerably more interesting than him. K.T. McFarland is particularly fascinating. After having watched several interviews and talks of hers, it’s become obvious to me how seasoned and sophisticated she is, and how someone like her could very easily play the role of a crucial handler. She attended Oxford then MIT, where she studied defense planning and became a self-described nuclear weapons expert. During the ’70s, McFarland worked on Henry Kissinger’s NSC staff writing (read: manipulatively wording) briefs for the president and remained on the NSC during the Ford administration as a Kissinger protege. 
In the ’80s, McFarland was one of defense secretary Caspar Weinberger’s closest aides as well as his speechwriter and communications chief. According to McFarland, her speeches were used to “short-circuit layers and layers of conflicting interests” in the defense bureaucracy. Weinberger was a very powerful secretary of defense and was noted for his key role in massively increasing the size and scope of the defense department and crafting the Strategic Defense Initiative before he was indicted for his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair (which Weinberger friend and CNP member Oliver North was also famously involved with). After his political career was over, he became vice president and general counsel of Bechtel, a large insider engineering corporation with CIA & DoD contracts involved in the construction of underground government bases. 
As Deputy NSA, McFarland has been not-so-subtly pushing for the agitation of North Korea. Dina Habib Powell is the relatively new Deputy NSA for Strategy (a separate position from the Deputy NSA). She was previously a high-ranking staff member with the Bush II administration “assisting the president” on appointing cabinet, subcabinet and ambassador positions. Powell then went to work for Goldman Sachs and at some point joined the Trilateral Commission, a major conspiracy staging ground which embraces neoliberalism in international relations (which advocates maximizing absolute as opposed to relative gains for states and cooperation/diplomacy), the co-opting of geopolitical adversaries and “soft power”. Both McFarland and Powell are members of the CFR. [51, 52]
A common theme among Trump administration defense and diplomatic officials is a connection to premier global conspirator Henry Kissinger, which shouldn’t be surprising given the fact that Kissinger is reportedly a close unofficial advisor of Trump’s and intends to serve as a critical intermediary between the Trump administration and Vladimir Putin, possibly coordinating a strengthening of ties (of indeterminate length) between the US and Russia to counter rising Chinese geopolitical influence. (In the ’70s, Kissinger conducted secret foreign policy with the Chinese, attempting to use them as a counterbalance to the USSR. Could the inverse be happening today?) This effort would also invariably involve Japan, a country that feigns weakness and pretends to isolate itself from the world stage, but in reality has, like the US does, a cult-like faction of militarists in the defense establishment who push and lobby for war with China, develop secret weapons systems in league with American companies like Raytheon and carry out unauthorized covert spying. Japan’s involvement with global conspiracy is generally very well hidden, but was exposed in the aftermath of 9/11 with the involvement of Fuji Bank and Komatsu in the event. [53, 54]
The deep state naturally extends to the economic and financial executive bureaucracy under Trump as well. Wilbur Ross, former senior managing director of Rothschild Inc. who, with early Trump supporter and donor Carl Icahn, engineered a deal whereby Trump was able to maintain control of his Atlantic City casinos after they were foreclosed upon, is now secretary of commerce. Bonesman, political paymaster and long-time Goldman Sachs partner Steve Mnuchin is secretary of the treasury. (Gary Cohn, another former high-ranking Goldman executive, is now the president’s chief economic advisor.) Mnuchin, like Ross, has been involved in business dealings with Trump – his firm Dune Capital invested heavily in Trump hotels in Chicago and Hawaii. Interestingly enough, the alt-right phantom George Soros (a business partner and friend of Mnuchin’s) was also part of a consortium of investors into the Trump tower in Chicago that after completion of the tower effectively forgave Trump hundreds of millions in interest payments by allowing Trump to purchase the remaining portion of the loan at a drastically reduced price. Charles Kushner was involved in a similar scenario with a Chinese real estate consortium connected to the Chinese government. [55, 56, 57, 58]
We have yet another private equity-hedge fund connection to Trump in Steve Feinberg, co-founder and CEO of private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management, which owns murderous bloodstained defense contractor DynCorp. Turns out, Feinberg may have murderous inclinations in common with the jewel of his company’s portfolio. Feinberg, another member of the Business Council, has been a top economic advisor to Trump and was recently asked by the president to lead a “review” of US intelligence agencies. What in the blue hell does that mean?
Trump’s secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, is Erik Prince’s sister. Prince, yet another CNP member, founded the infamous contract mercenary and security firm Blackwater and was an early supporter of Trump’s and reportedly advises him on matters of intelligence and national security. It is very likely that Prince, who despite having sold Blackwater to a consortium of investors several years ago has extensive contacts within the NYPD and FBI (two law enforcement organizations from which Blackwater recruited out of heavily) was the person leaking details of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private home-brew email server. Prince has publicly called for a revival of the CIA’s Phoenix Program, a renegade mind control assassination ring that existed during the Vietnam War. Joseph Schmitz, an executive director of Blackwater, was a foreign policy advisor for Trump’s campaign. So was WASP-Zionist extreme neoconservative war-pusher and former CIA director James Woolsey. What is it with Trump and unhinged rampaging warmongers and contract murderers? [59, 60]
Clearly, Trump is in no way a political outsider, being connected to just about every conspiratorial faction present in the Western world from the conservative and liberal Anglo-American WASP leagues to the Jewish-Zionist-Russian criminal syndicate to the militaristic sunbelt-based CNP neoconservative junta. These very sanctioned gangs have through their various media operations duped a substantial proportion of the American population into believing with unshakable conviction that a blackmailed inveterate con-artist and swindler who supports continued warmongering and the expansion of the surveillance and police states is truly on their side and will fight for them as opposed to the people who funneled Trump into his final and most awesome acting gig.
