The Deep State Institutions That Couldn’t Care Less Who You Vote For

department-of-the-deep-stateBy Dylan Charles

The American people are again fully enthralled in the puppet show of national elections, and while arguments grow ever-more heated and partisan, the fact remains that no matter which way we vote there will remain a deeper state which represents the real and unchanging forces driving the destiny of this country and of the world.

Even veteran politician such as the constitutionally minded Ron Paul have publicly stated that your vote doesn’t matter as long as the ‘Deep State’ continues to exist, living off of funds siphoned from taxpayers and scuttled into covert, black-ops and secret budgets.

The elections don’t matter. This is a ritual that we go through… My belief is that the control is the Deep State, and people have to realize that.Ron Paul

Former Republican U.S. Congressional aide, Mike Lofgren, who retired in 2011 after 28 years as a Congressional staffer defines the Deep State as follows:

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. ~ Mike Lofgren

These are the institutions, agencies and ongoing programs that are above the law, beyond scrutiny and operating in near total secrecy. They truly couldn’t care less who the American people vote for come this election day as their powers are now so fully entrenched that in spite of whichever political puppet sits in the White House they will still be able to muster the funds and authority to continue on with their subversive, anti-democratic agendas.

Topping the list are the following major players:

1. Intelligence AgenciesBusiness Insider reports that US intelligence community is comprised of 17 discreet agencies that operate with enormous budgets and incredible secrecy, bringing total surveillance and total information awareness to bear on the people of earth.

Of the 17 agencies, some of the most prominent and most active include the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR), none of which will be adversely affected by either candidate’s policies.

Oversight of these agencies generally falls to the Department of Defense or Congress, leaving the average citizen with precious little knowledge of how they operate.

Funded by largely classified budgets, it’s difficult to assess how much the U.S. annually spends on these clandestine operations, but one 2012 estimate pegs the cost at about $75 billion. [Source]

2. DARPAThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is the scientific vanguard of the Deep State, and the world’s pioneer of advanced technology, bringing science fiction to life. With an on-the-record annual budget of close to the $3 billion, their role in our world seems to be to absorb any and all human innovation and re-direct it toward the art of killing and controlling people. A simple Google search of ‘DARPA’ reveals an endless array of incredibly cool science projects, and public science competitions designed to discover and recruit the greatest upcoming scientific minds the human race produces.

Their influence in our world cannot be understated, both for their positive contributions to society, such as development of the Internet, and for their nefarious re-works of every great scientific idea. Their work will continue unabated no matter who is president.

3. Wall Street and Silicon Valley – Wall Street is the organization of criminal bankers and law firms who’ve managed to re-configure government and global finance to work in their favor, allowing them to privatize profit and socialize losses, guaranteeing the infinite enrichment of the 1%. Their power, originally garnered with the creation of central banking and banking corporations like The Federal Reserve, is now maintained and concentrated by their technological sophistication through their coordination with Silicon Valley.

Scientist, author and celebrated technological philosopher, Jaron Lanier, writes of the banking elite’s ability to outpace even any regulatory agency’s ability to understand and control the technology now involved in exacting trades, due to the simple fact that private companies with endless resources can afford to buy the best minds on earth.

As Lanier puts it, “there was a high-tech network scheme at play that seemed to concentrate wealth while at the same time causing volatility and trauma for ordinary people, particularly taxpayers who often ended up paying for a bailout.” No individual investor can compete with these Siren Servers, no matter how smart or lucky.” [Source]

Combined, the powers of Wall Street and Silicon Valley effectively own the U.S. government and, rest assured, whichever candidate makes it to inauguration day, they will be well-funded by, and well-respecting of the powers-that-be on Wall Street.

4. The Military Industrial Complex’s Defense ContractorsThe Orwellian permanent war is not a necessity in our modern world, but rather a natural by-product of exorbitant, unfettered investment in the arms race. The list of defense contractors that comprise the military industrial complex and manufacture and produce the equipment and war material that makes endless war a permanent feature of the modern world is, again, noted by Business Insider. At the top of their list of nine companies is Lockheed Martin, followed by Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman, all receiving tens of billions of dollars annually from the federal government.

Their power is derived from the good-old-boy and revolving-door network of government insiders and private sector free-agents who compete for taxpayer money and contracts. Both Trump and Hillary are supportive of this network, so take your pick.

5. The Secret Black Budget and Space Programs – These are the programs that are spoken of mostly in rumors. The best guess is that they are funded by money stolen from the American people and operate in locations such as the fabled Deep Underground Bases (DUMBs) under the protection of the military. We know they exist because of occasional media leaks about their technological achievements and secretly funded programs, yet information is often sketchy. Nonetheless, their works will continue to influence the direction of global conflict while pushing the world toward a space-based economy no matter which candidate you choose.

The Missing Trillions of Taxpayer Money

Former Wall Street investment bank director, and former assistant secretary United States Department of Housing and Urban Development during the first Bush Administration, Catherine Austin Fitts, estimates that some $40 trillion dollars in taxpayer money has disappeared in recent decades from the budgets of the Pentagon and other agencies and has been covertly directed toward the operations of these Deep State institutions.

In 2015 the gross domestic product of the U.S. economy was close to $18 trillion, meaning that, at least, over 2 years full years of American productivity has been vaporized by the secretive government, and most recently some $6.5 trillion was reported missing from the Pentagon. This is how the Deep State is funded and why the elections play such an important role in distracting the American public.

Final Thoughts

In light of revelations about the existence and operations of these agencies, as well as their speculated funding by missing public money, voting for a president is rightfully acknowledged as futile. For those of us truly seeking positive change in a world where government is completely unaccountable to the people who fund it, there’s simply no way to ignore the relevance of exposing the Deep State.

As all governments—sometimes for good reasons—engage in concealment of their more questionable activities, or even resort to out and out deception, one must ask how the deep state differs. While an elected government might sometimes engage in activity that is legally questionable, there is normally some plausible pretext employed to cover up or explain the act.

But for players in the deep state, there is no accountability and no legal limit. Everything is based on self-interest, justified through an assertion of patriotism and the national interest. ~ Philip Giraldi

  1. The Deep State is a hydra-monster of behemoth proportions. It will only be destroyed in something that results in total global annihilation.
    How do you fight something like this?

    • At this point, you can’t .
      Just hang on tight and hope to survive.
      See my comment above.

      • Ultimately none of us “survive;” we all end up stepping over the threshold into eternity so I suppose it’s proper to pursue what you deem right and good.

        • Even so, many of us act like we will live forever. Death is inevitable.
          It comes for everyone of us, so fearing it is insane. I’m not advocating being reckless but let’s at least try to give the impression of some bravery, and courage.
          Horatius at the gate. He faced fearful odds.

          Belive it or not there are some things more important then life itself.
          These are the standards and principles that guide us.
          Doing what you are told no matter what is right is obedience.
          Doing what is right no matter what you are told is morality.

          • This is my thought process too. The odds are too low to calculate but rolling over for eternal enslavement and mind control is worse than death which comes anyway.

          • Truth. There are definitely things worth taking a stand for, and dying (if necessary) in defense of.

            I’m not sure people have those things in proper order of merit though.

            For example, going to the ME to fight against people (Muslims) who would rather kill each other than co-exist is NOT one of the things worth dying for.

    • TPTB have spent all their energy, time, and capital brainwashing and dumbing down the public for generations. We can’t quickly fix dumbing down but brainwashing can be unwound fairly fast. That’s why Obama is handing over control over the internet to the UN. ….At this point the odds are so stacked against us, only a major unexpected shock (asteroid, Divine intervention, Mother Nature backfire) seems like our only hope – which is absurd because we have the potential to be far more powerful on a conscious level than most are.

      • Dumbing down, distracting, vilifying, misdirecting, maligning, dividing and lulling to sleep.
        The real problem is that most people have no greater object of affection than their own self, and no greater purpose in life than catering to the whims and desires of that self.
        How can we hope to achieve any grand objective when most people would prefer to be entertained and coddled?

        • It sucks, I l know. I’ve tried to appeal to the survival instincts of “me and mine” crowd by pointing out the vast methods of poisoning we’re being subjected to but unless they were to see someone immediately collapse in front of them immediately after a vaccine or some other nefarious activity they just cannot connect the dots.

          • It isn’t always that people are that stupid, it’s just easier to coast along like a leaf on the water.

  2. I have been saying for months that the legislative branch of our government is no longer functioning.The various government agencies are writing and passing the laws.

    • Months!?!
      I’ve been trying to warn for years, and it’s all branches of our government that are derelict in their intended function.

      The American people and the alternative media don’t seem to understand where we really are right now. They are both still very far behind the curve, and because of that, we have allowed a momentum to develop that will make the following disasters inevitable.
      Either willfull or not our ignorance or cowardice has allowed the greedy paranoid control freaks to set in motion conditions that they themselves cannot possibly control. They are not in their right mind and believe their own rhetoric that they can sustain this terrible flawed control system.
      NOW, it won’t matter what we do because we cannot stop what our ignorance and cowardice has put in motion.

      We should have heeded the warnings instead of playing along by writing and reading articles that were much to do of nothing.

      • It could stop right here if a massive shift took place in entire western nations in which the proles began to walk away from the control systems – assuming the epiphany went viral. It’s not too late…that’s why controlled elements of the alt (and the clueless mimics) are going into high gear on the fear mongering = paralysis & learned helplessness.

        There have been big inflection points and none have been impossible to roll back…so far. You’re right, this is NOT new by any stretch, the legislative takeover was well under way before many of us were even born – notably around the time of JFKs assassination moving into deep capture when the Trilateralists took over the executive branch during the Carter administration.

        • Your key word is IF.
          Not trying to negative but realistic.
          Give me a significant example of some demonstration of effective response to the growing corruption.
          We have NDAA. No bankers were held accountable during their theft.
          The pentagon cannot account for some 8.7 trillion dollars. We have how many undeclared and congress unapproved wars we are mired in?
          I can list so much more but it would begin to look like a novel, and by the way, I’ve noticed when key words are typed in the system locks up and the page reloaded as if my posts are being monitored.
          Realistically, it doesn’t show a great deal of promise.

  3. This article is a good summation of what those in the know (for the past 40 years or so) have understood… especially those who realize what is the seemingly unstoppable power created by completely unbridled “legal” counterfeiting, which is assured to the masters of the game. (started in 1964). If that isn’t choked off completely, we are done. So the question becomes: How do we achieve that? Is it even possible? Is it a cancer which can’t be stopped until we are literally in a nation as depicted by Hunger Games? I actually believe there is an antidote; a grassroots plan that could check it, because it’s NOT reliant on money to work. Deputiz’m plan… A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, being necessary for the security of a free state………. It’s impossible to live free without it. It will work because there is NO limit to how many men a sheriff may deputize. And they don’t have to actually reside in said county, either. But this will take men willing to fight for liberty, not just whine about the injustice of totalitarianism.

    • That was one of my suggestions years ago, but it fell upon deaf ears. If it takes place now it will be out of sheer desperation, and these deputized men, and militia will not only have to fight the domestic enemies that have stolen office but the lawless people that their reign has created.
      Our local police are where the rubber meets the road. They have the power to arrest and jail any and all criminals regardless of position titles or status, and knowing the hubris of the current criminals who have stolen power they would arrogantly deliver themselves thinking they were above the law trying to stop you.
      You wouldn’t even have to go looking for many.
      But this will take Americans coming together and actually displaying courage. They are so busy fighting with each other over using improper politically incorrect words, or supporting the red team instead of the blue, or tweeting something on their iPhone.
      I’m waiting to see a REAL demonstration of intelligent awareness that gives me a glimmer of hope.

      • CS: When considering Richard Mack’s CSPOA org, we have a few sheriffs who seemingly take their Oath of Office seriously. However, I wonder what goes through their minds, thinking they could hold of the feds with a few barney fifes at their side. email me at [email protected] I want to mail you a document

    • Does anyone on here realize what fighting the government with all their military equipment drones, etc. would be like? Equipment that can burn your skin until you die but not even burn your clothing? Military equipment that local law enforcement now has; swat teams? I’m in total agreement that our government needs to be stopped and disbanded but really, how???

      • ah, Karolyn… that’s the beauty of the deputiz’m plan. A WELL REGULATED MILITIA gets access to this exact same equipment… and the power to arrest govStooges who violate Title 18, Sec. 241

        • That is not true and you know it!

          • Louis Charles | September 15, 2016 at 1:07 pm |

            OH? give me a chance to hire 1 million deputies, with access to drones and AA-12 guns (do a youTube search)… led by a few qualified Oath Keepers Army Rangers, Marine GBs and Navy Seals. Yeah… Oboingo will stop us from upholding our Constitution. uh, huh…..

          • You answer your own statement Louis: “Give me a chance to hire 1 million deputies…” Could you tell me where you are planning to find them?

          • Louis Charles | September 16, 2016 at 12:16 pm |

            that’s only 20,000 per state on average. Heck, I believe if I were a sheriff in a Texas county and publicly announced that each man will be trained with, and have access to AA-12s and drone defense along with your badge, and didn’t have to reside in my county, I’d have my million from that one state.

          • Louis: I am not trying to discourage you, however being 76 years old, a military retiree,I have seen a lot of life.You are proposing that you could do this right under the government’s eyes and you should know by now they know everything.Louis I guess you are much younger than me.I appreciate your determination.You have a hope which is great.I live by myself with 3 dogs and 6 cats.That’s my family and in no way could I leave them to defend other people’s property,or fight the government.I’m not afraid to die, just have to be sensible as to what I can fight for and try to defend.

          • Louis Charles | September 16, 2016 at 2:10 pm |

            “under” the government’s eyes? Precisely the opposite. Right out there for everyone to see…. and thusly decide, as a nation whether the first part of the 2nd Amendment is as important to us as the last part.

      • So, just bend over and take it, Karolyn? We all have a choice to either live on our knees or die on our feet. I know where you’ll be.

        • The average person cannot say what they might do.Bend over and take it is kind of hard when considering some are not as strong and brave as others pretend to be.There’s an old saying I learned in my years in the military when you are doomed: :Bend over and kiss your own behind goodbye!

          • You are referring to that moment in every person’s life when their “faith” is truly tested. One either believes that life is a continuum and death is the illusion or it isn’t. I think it’s really that simple. One’s behavior at that crucial moment reflects that. The ultimate test of “faith”.

          • It depends on what that faith is placed in.I just happen to have faith in Jesus Christ.

          • Then you know that life is the reality and death is the illusion. Be brave!

        Stop going to work. General strike.

  4. They DO care who you vote for at the local and state levels and what you do to take back your power.
    They care how you “vote” with your pocketbook – while you still can. They care very much if you reject their “smart” systems lock, stock and barrel.

    Why aren’t geoengineering activists organizing with health freedom activists (GMOs, vaccines, 5G radiation, anti-fracking etc.), second amendment supporters, self identified “Libertarians”, et al? Divided we fall.

    • I think the puppet theater has managed to keep the cap on geoengineering that it is still considered a fringe conspiracy theory. More people probably accept the existence of alien abduction.

      It’s like sometimes you can tell the difference between the Jesse Ventura’s and the Alex Jones’, but sometimes you can’t.

      Either way though that difference borders too closely between truth and fiction. That is enough to turn most otherwise rational people off.

      • I know you’re spot on, James Stone. When I cruise through the geoengineering watch website I see the most passionate anti-NWO folks in the entire alternative news community. Most are livid – at least they still have a pulse. The only other group that came close were the anti-open borders activists going back a decade or so. Neither group had the feature of being single minded until the latter was finally subsumed by the big gatekeepers. Too bad 9/11 Truth groups stayed compartmentalized.

  5. I’ll be waiting for Vol. 2, 3, & 4 to complete this expose. The true Deep State levers of power are the ones we never see. A famous American satirist once said, ” If voting really mattered, they would have abolished it a long time ago”. I will continue to belong and support The George Carlin Party.

  6. someone is preventing me from commenting here … maybe it is “them” as I have been placing an active link to “them” here. !?

  7. Trump vs Deep State | September 14, 2016 at 1:00 am | Reply

    The premise/title of the article is so simplistic and completely wrong, and also not backed up by any evidence. There is no difference between Trump and Crooked Hillary? Assuming what the author says is true, so what is the point of writing this article? There is none. Hide in your cave with your survival gear. That said, why is the media and power establishment going so crazy against Trump as he gains in the polls? Is it all a conspiracy to trick us into thinking there is a difference, when there is not? At the end of the day if you examine the different positions, Hillary is a neo con globalist war monger, and Trump is a white nationalist who wants to bring back jobs and restore the borders. To say there is no difference is to essentially take the side of the globalists, like Alex Jones does, claiming he is against them when in reality he is covering for the true criminals and culprits in the tribe that pay his checks.

  8. Where’s my deep underground base. The chicken littles have built them for themselves. Oh well, pop your head up it will be whack a mole time unholy tribe, best button down the hatches and stay down. Nobody wants you around, your all a bunch of vampires and someday you will eat your own, oh wait you (more than likely) already do.
    The governments around the world have been Usurped. The only way to stop them is to stop feeding them. government is the worst investment I have ever been swindled out of.

  9. We need to implement mandatory psychological testing of all government high officials. If we could eliminate all sociopaths from office, the Deep State would no longer exist.

    • The Penitent Man | September 15, 2016 at 8:20 am | Reply

      The answer is eliminating government itself. It is a cancer that destroys everything. I’m not talking about anarchy but if we want to survive we must end this illusion of government.

  10. Let’s stop and consider some things.First of all the most primal aspect of humanity is survival.Most people might disagree but when it comes to doing what you are ordered to do, or disobeying and being killed yourself brings it out.Now no one would debate that a father or mother would die for their children, but think carefully about this current trend in society which says Me Me Me,and only Me. There are young people that I actually believe would kill their own parents if their life was at stake.If a government worker is given a weapon and told to defend the government or lose their own life, must I say more?Darwin spoke about the survival of the fittest, but had to know that the elites would use it to stay in power.There are those who have in the deepest and darkest corners of their minds, that they will survive and make a wonderful utopia for themselves.Stop and think for one moment about someone in an agency that has dark plans.They are in a position to push them forward if they coincide with the big plan of the elites in power.Consider the EPA, The ATF, the DHS and every other agency that has thousands of people that just want to survive no matter what.

  11. Let’s look at the possible groups that could be on one side or the other. You speak of militias as if they are able to really accomplish something but how many have been shut down or at least hindered by the FBI,ATF,DHS? At the same time we have the Nation of Islam, NBP,BLM and many in government who will stand with the black president because they believe they deserve more from the white people.Then you have the many Jihadist training camps all over America and now thousands of new “refuges” which are mostly men of fighting age.Then we have the politicians themselves who will do everything they can to cover their own behinds.What happened when the man was shot by FBI agent defending his property? Was there a mass uprising? No it was all talk. Think about Ruby Ridge and what became of that.Also the Waco massacre.Did all these militias and brave souls on the web step out and start fighting.One last thing to burst the bubbles.I believe that our own military will be fighting each other.
