Peace Through Mutual Blackmail: Is That What’s Happening In Washington?

By Jon Rappoport

In the last few days, the campaign to impeach Donald Trump has quieted down. We’ll see what happens; but is this breathing space and pause the result of a stalemate? Do both sides have “control files” on each other? Is the underlying proposition, “I won’t spill your secrets if you won’t spill mine”?

I now refer to an article about Trump and his enemies that has been circulating online. I don’t know who the author is. His views and opinions make an interesting circumstantial case. Here is an excerpt:

“James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.”

“Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House ‘staff’ to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance ‘tapes’ from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.”

“The swamp is on notice that the President is on to them, they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are roadkill.”

The article goes on to describe the purported depths of Comey’s corrupt connections to the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation, as their agent.

In the author’s view, Trump and Attorney General Sessions have the goods on the Clintons now, and also have damning evidence of crimes committed by other key players in the DC swamp.

There is another possibility.

Given Donald Trump’s history as a real estate hustler from way back, his acrobatic financial dealings with money men, his projects’ bankruptcies, his celebrity status, his impulsive proclivities, his extraordinary self-promotion, it’s obvious his enemies have compiled a “control file” on him. They have the sort of information they believe they can use as serious blackmail.

In that case, we could now be looking at a stalemate of sorts. Both sides have the goods on each other.

This is no guarantee of a permanent peace based on Mutually Assured Destruction; but MAD could form the basis of a truce. And the truce could extend into the future.

“I have your secrets, you have mine. Now let’s do business.”

Of course, we have to remember that Washington is a tinderbox at all times. It’s a dry forest waiting for a match to be struck and a spark to fly.

We will see whether Trump drains the swamp, the swamp drains him, or nobody drains anybody.

The present war in Washington isn’t for the faint of heart, or the nice people who want everybody to get along, or the suburbanites who want all participants to be awarded trophies. Washington is Crime Central and the knives are out in full view. It’s a fashion parade in the devil’s cave. To paraphrase Harry Truman, if you can’t stand the overflowing toilets, get out of the bathroom.

Washington is a land of insanity, psychosis, spying, panic, and excrement-throwing.

When you try to connect the dots, you see they have blood and lies and hatred and coup-plotting and impeachment and even the ghost of David Rockefeller embedded in them, as opening and closing little clams and sharks and crawling worms and blobs of unidentifiable species try to take Donald Trump down. And he, of course, wants to take them down…

It would be no surprise if the people who hold each other’s secrets are staring at a “nuclear freeze” pact on the bargaining table: “you can’t blow me up without me blowing you up.”

Also consider players within the US intelligence community. Both the CIA and NSA have been spying on officials in Washington and other prominent Americans for a long time. These agencies hold secrets as well.

And then there is the organization whose members and alumni Trump has surrounded himself with:

Goldman Sachs. Through his key appointees from the “vampire squid” firm, Trump is working an audacious angle. He knows that if the stock market takes a long and horrendous dive, the pressure on him is going to be enormous. The “business community” will blame him. The media will claim the economy is collapsing under his watch. Goldman can make many moves to keep the stock market up. What does the firm want in return? That’s the magic question. Threats of war, and war, in order to keep contract money flowing to the military industrial complex? Special and undetectable favors? Protection from prosecution for ongoing financial crimes? And what does Goldman Sachs know about Trump? What would they be willing to reveal, if he backs away from any part of the agreement he has struck with them?

The mutually assured destruction pact has more than two sides. Holding together a multi-faceted truce isn’t the easiest job in the world.

Everyone involved has something to gain and something to lose. Calculating upside vs. downside is a delicate proposition.

And, in the midst of this, crazy people can show up who go off on the spur of the moment. They blow their corks, and all bets are off.

For now, cooler heads are prevailing.

For now.

Blackmail, extortion. It’s not the only game in town, but it’s the big one. It lurks around every corner, it sits in every conference room, it weaves its way through legislation, policy, and judicial decision.

It’s the other branch of government.

  1. While I totally agree that mutual blackmail is unfortunately the foundation value in Washington [so much greed & perversion]; I am disappointed that this article is being circulated several places as if there is any presentable paper trail to back it up. Don’t forget despite all Comey’s connections to the Clintons ;he threw Hillary under the bus & is not dead yet. If anybody thinks Trump is any better or less of a monster I have a bridge to sell you…
    This “article” is taken from an OPINION piece from a FACEBOOK post by Lisa Frank, business woman /artist that created rainbow trapper keepers & unicorns for kids in the 80s & 90s. Now a 60 something recluse with a failed company in Tucson ,AZ; not a reporter or political insider so please take it with a grain of salt.

    More left/right paradigm propaganda. Everyone at the top knows what’s what, and that is they are all just acting their parts they were hired to play to keep us distracted and divided. It’s time to hop out of that manufactured rabbit hole and realize that everything they do, and everything they come out with, with regard to one side fighting the other, are lies, smoke and mirrors, bread and circus. They never come out with the truth and that is they all work for the same boss for the same goal and that is total earthly domination and control. That is where we need to focus, not in the mire of horsepoo they shovel into our faces and minds to keep us fighting each other instead of fighting them. It’s getting to the point that the readers are more aware, informed, sophisticated and educated than the authors of articles at these websites, and I think it would behoove AP to catch up to us, and get with the program (so to speak) because IMHO this stuff does way more harm than good.

  3. D.C. is the main swamp.
    Our tax dollars at there finest.
    End the Fed and all zentral bankz that have stolen the wealth of the world.

      The Fed was ended in 1933 and a foreign corporation took its place, masquerading now as our Fed. See my comment in response to the “deplorable” one. 😉

      • Technically a corporation would have to pay federal income tax on profits, and file a tax return, whether it is US registered or a foreign corporation licensed to do business in the US. The Federal Reserve does not file any tax returns, but it does pay to the US Treasury a few $billion it derives from seigniorage – profit made from issuing currency, especially the difference between the face value of notes and their production costs.

          as we become increasingly “cashless ” these rascals are getting into other ventures to keep their nice little earner….can we never bring them to heel ?,,,

          We’re talking about lying traitors who are above the law by claimed divine right and higher legal status, so how they get away with what they do is anyone’s guess. US taxes are tributes paid to Britain. Again, we have no Treasury and haven’t since 1922, what they call the treasury is now the IMF. How they do business is also anyone’s guess. LOL

          I’ve posted the legal references to prove the above about the Dept. of Treasury many times here (maybe even on this thread, too) and I’m on my phone now so I can’t post it again, but if you go to my YouTube channel (via pc only, phones don’t access channel information) and click on the “Discussion” tab then scroll down to “Things Everyone Should Learn” the legal citations are all there so you can learn where to begin to answer your questions yourself! And they’re good ones I’m curious about myself!

          Again, good luck and do let us all know what you find! I’m on vacation, and so back to it! 😉

    The swamp is too deep. Declare martial law and hang all the demonrat/RINOs in congress.

      We’ve been under martial law rule since the Civil War when we were “incorporated” and for sure since 1933 when they took us off the gold standard. “As we have said, the Federal Personal Income Tax is collected under a military venue within a martial law jurisdiction. Federal Reserve Notes are Military Scrip circulated in a Military Venue. The problem is the people don’t understand how the entire United States is in a Military Venue. … Under the Social Security Act [1933] there was brought into existence Ten Federal Regional Areas. These Ten Federal Regional Areas [sounds a lot like FEMA regions, yes? That’s because they ARE the FEMA regions and they’ve been around nearly 100 years] are the same as a military base [gold fringe around the flag]. It is not unconstitutional to circulate “military scrip” on a military base as the base is considered to be a military venue.
      “Military Scrip” cannot circulate in the civil jurisdiction of the United States. To get around this Constitutional bar the Congress created Ten Military Venues called Federal Regional Areas. The problem the Congress realized was, while Congress could restructure the Government agencies into these Federal Regional Areas, the people could not be identified to be [see: jurisdiction, they tricked us into it!] within this Military Venue but by their own consent [a commercial contract]. Dyett v. Turner, 439 P2d 266 @ 269, 20 U2d 403 (*1968*) The Non-Ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment by Judge A.H. Ellett, Utah Supreme Court.

      “It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act [Social Security Act], March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent.” H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress in session, June 5, 1933.

      Joint Resolution to Suspend the Gold Standard and Abrogate. The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments, and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only. United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1933 Vol. 33.”

      What we have now is a fictitious (means not real, with no real authority) corporation masquerading as our federal government, so it’s ALL been a fraud for a very long time.

        You are correct.

      • If the US government is a corporation, some entity must own it via shares. Or is it a bearer share company and where is it registered ? Liechstenstein ?

        • Grace by Faith on yt | June 1, 2017 at 9:58 am | Reply

          There is no if, it is established fact as I’ve shown many times here with the legal references to back it up that we are now a corporation. The Crown Corporation out of City of London owns USA Inc., as we are still a British possession. We were incorporated in the 19th century (Civil War era, I believe it was 1871 but maybe earlier), and Crown Corporation is owned and operated by the Vatican because it owns Britain, so I’m sure if you’re really interested you can research those questions yourself quite easily. Please share what you find with us!

          I’m no expert, I’m just a woman who has done her homework and is sharing what I found with you all. So I urge you all not to take my word for any of it – look into it yourselves and see what you find. It appears some here just argue for argument’s sake, so anyone truly interested in finding the truth will do that.

          I’d start with researching the Crown Corp. and because the Vatican claims ownership over everything in, on, below, and above earth, that would be where to begin.

          I’m not at my PC and won’t be for a few weeks, so I don’t have access to my research but if you go through my previous posts, you’ll get a good idea where to start looking.

          This is not hidden information, it’s always been there for anyone who honestly wants to learn anything about it. Good luck!

      And at least 75% of the do-nothing Republicans!

  5. President Trump should stay in Washington D.C., and stop travelling around doing what Diplomats and Ambassadors are paid to do. He is central to Government, so stay in the Center. From there he can kick anyone out.

    • Trump is a salesman for the MIC, nothing more.

      • Trump is more than a Salesman. He is a Show Man. Like most Presidents, he has found Seclusion by flying high in the Sky, and away from his commitments. Home Issue’s are what awaits him. But he prefers to be seen as a Jet-Setter. He knows like Obama before him, that a World Financial Crisis is looming and he wants to be far away. Perhaps he will also like to move to Tahiti when it finally comes.

        • The looming world financial crises is just a series of data entries on bank computers.

          • So is most of peoples Wealth and it can all disappear by turning off the Electricity.

          • Kapricorn4 | May 29, 2017 at 11:51 am |

            That applies to you and me in a hopefully temporary situation, but I imagine that major banks have taken steps to ensure that their data is protected and backed up in several locations and by the use of emergency generators. Same with the US military.

          • I do my best to keep out of the Banking System, but it is everywhere. Time will tell.

  6. Extremely sharp to the point of shocking article but I didn’t find any factual faults in it.
