First understand that the Deep State is not a political or philosophical movement. The Deep State is history’s largest and most prolific crime syndicate. Is that clear enough?
The Deep State controls governments and elected officials for the purpose of generating profits for its members. The Deep State’s focus is on the United States because that is still where most of the world’s money is. Today each bill which congress passes is filled with skimming arrangements. Bills like the Affordable Care Act are really nothing but a system of distributing skimming arrangements to those deemed worthy of participating.
Like with any organized crime syndicate, plenty of people benefit from its activities. Who benefits? Mostly the beneficiaries are those who actually come out ahead based on the Mob’s activities. In New York during the 70s one of the crime families stared a skimming operation in the baking industry. At the time baked bread sold for $0.35 per loaf. The mob strong armed every bakery in the city to charge $0.50 per loaf. The bakeries got half of the difference and paid tribute to the crime family with the difference. The bakers were making more money. Do you think the bakers were unhappy? Just like with the skimming operations which work through government, the public paid more. Of course the public had no idea why bread went up in price so much but they got used to it.
This is the way legislation works. The right people benefit from the legislation and end up taking the Deep State’s side. Anyone in the United States who has owned stock over the past twenty years has benefited greatly by virtue of having the Deep State embedded in government.
It took the mob two decades to gain control of the financial sector of the United States. By 2003 with enough political power it was possible to cause broad movements in the stock averages through control of the Federal Reserve and other agencies. By 2005 some high frequency trading firms were starting up and it became possible to orchestrate short squeezes and create artificial demand by messing with derivatives. By 2006 there was an ongoing asset enhancement initiative that lived off of public funds. Regardless, by June of that year asset prices of all kinds were coming under pressure. Henry Paulson was brought in as Treasury Secretary. His job was to save the housing and equity markets and get prices moving higher. His effort was enormous, but everything tanked regardless in 2008. All was not lost. There were losses but the TARP bill managed to pass a significant amount of those losses to the taxpayers. Today, managing stock prices is a sophisticate science. Organized crime is not without its vulnerabilities. The greatest of those is that of killing the host. The mob has just about killed the host and controlling the stock market is becoming difficult and perhaps impossible. The profits are so enormous, the effort will continue regardless.
Do you ever notice that when it is important for your favorite politicians to make a stand, they behave like deer in headlights? Remember when Supreme Court John Roberts came out with his bizarre and unexpected reason why The Affordable Care Act should be deemed as constitutional? Remember when James Comey of the FBI did such crazy and unpredictable things with respect to the Clinton investigation? Clearly people like this are subject to external pressure. Think of all of the convenient deaths that have taken place in Washington DC.
The American people are neither aware of what is going on nor or they suspicious. Just remember that the Deep State is the highest possible level of organized crime.
You may ask, “Who does this guy think he is making all of these unfounded allegations?” How are these things decided when there are no hard facts on the table? It is always safe to assume folks are behaving in keeping with the incentives they have especially when there is no resistance to them doing so. If you leave a slice of moist bread out for a few days, does it make sense that it would accumulate mold? There is absolutely nothing to prevent organized crime from taking over our government and it has.
