Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
On April 7, 2017, President Donald Trump launched a missle strike into Syria, ostensibly in response to use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government in the ongoing civil war. Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept described the response to Trump’s new hawkishness by noting that “the same establishment leaders in U.S. politics and media who have spent months denouncing him as a mentally unstable and inept authoritarian and unprecedented threat to democracy are standing and applauding him as he launches bombs at Syrian government targets.”
Leading Congressional Democrats – including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi – quickly praised Trump’s bombing while raising concerns about process. Hours before the bombing commenced, as it was known Trump was planning it, Hillary Clinton – who has been critical of Obama for years for not attacking Assad – appeared at an event and offered her categorical support for what Trump was planning.
The response by the “Alt Right” was the exact opposite: Trump was widely criticized by some of his most ardent supporters, suggesting that Trump had “sold out to neo-con globalists” perhaps even on the orders of Benjamin Netanyahu himself, betraying his base who had supported his promises to dial back tensions with Russia and to avoid the worst of the foreign adventures of the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations. Some “bitter clingers” held on to the hope that Trump was playing “4-D Chess” and that the new policy on Syria was an elaborate ruse meant to quell rumors that Trump was a dupe of Russia’s Vladimir Putin who had “hacked” the Democratic party and leaked damaging information about the DNC and Clinton’s campaign to Wikileaks.
Wikileaks was the subject of another abrupt about-face from Trump, who despite having praised them during the campaign deferred to Attorney General Jeff Sessions who declared arresting Wikileak’s Julian Assange a national security “priority.”
Ever since the Wikileaks release of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s emails at the height of the campaign, those opposed to Trump speculated that he and his campaign had illegally conspired with Russia in order to “hack the election.” Those who supported Trump declared that the American “Deep State” was in fact conspiring against Trump, possibly even instigating a coup against him. Between election night and the inauguration, rumors swirled among Trump fans that “the CIA” and “the media” were preparing a George Soros style “Color Revolution” against Trump, perhaps even an assassination. The term “Deep State” became popular and the mainstream media wasn’t quite sure if the entire concept of a “Deep State” was nothing but a wild conspiracy theory by the nefarious “Alt Right” and went so far as to declare that the “Deep State” doesn’t exist.
The term “Deep State” was coined in a response to a 1996 event in Turkey known as the “Susurluk car crash” in which an automobile carrying four individuals was run off the road, killing three and injuring another. What made the car crash a scandal was the people riding in the car, which suggested a relationship between the official government, law enforcement, the criminal underworld, and the Turkish entertainment industry. In the car was Abdullah Çatli, an “ultra-right wing militant” wanted by police for multiple murders, beauty queen and entertainer Gonca Us, Sedat Bucak, a politician and member of the Turkish parliament, and Huseyin Kocadag, a senior police official.
Turkey is not America so it’s difficult to make a comparison, but a similar incident in the United States might involve a limo carrying Senator John McCain, FBI director James Comey, convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, and pop singer Taylor Swift. There is really no innocent explanation for politicians, notorious criminals, law enforcement officials and celebrities socializing with each other “behind the scenes” and the Susurluk car crash led to theories of a Turkish “Deep State,” a “government behind the government” that “really ran things.” A “deep state” where “every cop’s a criminal” and the line between the official authorities and the criminal underworld is blurred and powerful men on both sides of the law are sexually serviced by society’s most beautiful and famous starlets that we watch on television every day.
Such notions would have remained firmly in “conspiracy theory” territory but for the discovery of the bodies.
When Wikileaks came out … never heard of Wikileaks, never heard of it. When Wikileaks came out, all I was just saying is, “Well, look at all this information here, this is pretty good stuff.” You know, they tried to hack the Republican, the RNC, but we had good defenses. They didn’t have defenses, which is pretty bad management. But we had good defenses, they tried to hack both of them. They weren’t able to get through to Republicans. No, I found it very interesting when I read this stuff and I said, “Wow.” It was just a figure of speech. I said, “Well, look at this. It’s good reading.” — Donald Trump
If there is an “American Deep State,” Donald Trump himself may be considered something of an insider. His real estate and casino businesses have been the subject of long standing rumors of having ties to organized crime. He has long had one foot in the business world and one foot in the celebrity world, the line between his business persona and his celebrity, “reality TV” persona often blurred. His political aspirations, universally considered a joke even during his previous run for President in 2000, have now landed him in the most powerful political office in the country, if not the world. His womanizing is notorious and his political opponents have even accused him of being blackmailed by Russian intelligence agencies over supposed sexual indiscretions. Clinton’s and Trump’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein became a campaign issue. Trump himself is an admitted fan of Alex Jones, the “conspiracy shock jock” whose shtick includes constant speculations on the existence of such an “American Deep State.”
While Trump’s fans often use the term “Deep State” to merely mean “the Demoratic party wing of the CIA and the mainstream media,” in the canonical sense of the term it has to include the official government, organized crime, and celebrity culture. In that sense, the Deep State must include both violence and sex. While men observing the deep state might only notice the cops and the criminals, a woman observing the police state may find a connection that most men simply overlook: the women spanning the supposed line between the “good guys” and the “bad guys.” The Susurluk car crash, after all, included the starlet Gonca Us playing the role of the Femme Fatale. Trump’s legend wouldn’t be what it is without his women, after all. Interestingly too, some of the most vocal CIA connected critics of Trump have been women. When focusing on the Deep State, you only see half of the picture if you ignore the women.
While men often form a hierarchy, with official positions and titles, women often see the world in the sense of family ties. An important aspect of the theory of an American “Deep State” is the idea that certain families “run the show” behind the scenes. Many a conspiracy theory has been weaved around legendary American families like the Rockefellers and the social institutions of this presumed American elite like Yale’s Skull & Bones.
What is the first thing schoolchildren are traditionally taught about the United States? Of course it’s the Pilgrims arriving in North America on the legendary ship the Mayflower. So perhaps it’s fitting to start there, or at least, with one of the most famous women of the modern era whose ancestors arrived on the Mayflower and the role she played in a notorious affair that has all the hallmarks of a “Deep State” event, the participants of which, if anyone, are now arrayed against Donald Trump.
