The Deep State's most prescient elements must derail Hillary's
campaign to clear a path to Trump's executive team.
Back in August, I asked 'Could
the Deep State Be Sabotaging Hillary?'
I think we now have a definitive answer:
"These blast points on Hillary's
campaign... too accurate for the Mainstream Media. Only the
forces of the Imperial Deep State are so precise."
Mainstream Media is presenting the
FBI investigation as a "lose-lose" situation for embattled FBI
If Comey remained quiet until after the
election, he would be accused of colluding with
campaign and its allies in the Department of 'Justice' (sic).
But in going public, he stands accused by Democrats of "intervening
in an election," i.e. raising doubts about Hillary's judgment and
veracity days before Americans go to the polls.
Another narrative has Comey's hand forced by the threat of disgusted
FBI agents leaking information that would show the FBI caved into
political pressure from the Democratic Party and Clinton campaign to
keep relevant material out of the public eye until after the
I submit another much more powerful dynamic is in play:
the upper ranks of the Deep State
now view Hillary as an unacceptable liability.
The word came down to Comey to act
whether he wanted to or not, i.e. take one for the good of the
nation/Deep State/Imperial Project.
As a refresher:
the Deep State is the
unelected government (also called
the invisible or shadow government)
that is not as monolithic as generally assumed.
The neo-conservative globalists who want
Hillary to continue pushing their agenda are the more visible camp,
but another less visible but highly motivated camp realizes Hillary
and her neo-con agenda would severely damage the nation's security
and its global influence.
It is this camp that is arranging for
Hillary to lose...
The consensus view seems to be that
the Establishment and the Deep State see Trump as
a loose cannon who might upset the neo-con apple cart by refusing to
toe the neo-con line.
This view overlooks the reality that significant segments of the
Deep State view the neo-con strategy as an irredeemable failure.
To these elements of the Deep State,
Hillary is a threat precisely because she embraces the
failed neo-con strategy and those who cling to it. From
this point of view, Hillary as president would be an unmitigated
disaster for the Deep State and the nation/Imperial Project it
Whatever else emerges from the emails being leaked or officially
released, one conclusion is inescapable:
Hillary's judgment is hopelessly
Combine her lack of
judgment with her 24 years of accumulated baggage and her
potential to push the neo-con agenda to the point of global
disaster, and you get a potent need for the Deep State's most
prescient elements to derail her campaign and clear a path to
Trump's executive team.
Once this path is clear, the management of Trump's executive team
can begin in earnest, a management process aimed at disengaging
the nation and its global Empire from neo-con overreach.
If you think this scenario is "impossible," let's see
how the election plays out before
deciding what's "impossible" and what's inevitable...
