In the 1990’s and early 2000’s there were numerous conspiracy theorists who were writing about a secret government, “the cabal”, “the Khazarian Mafia” that was covertly taking control of governments, banks, and corporations worldwide. They were labeled as paranoid nut jobs by mainstream pundits and the MSM. This being the case, even though several world leaders were warning of the very same reality since the early 1950’s. Dwight Eisenhower’s famous farewell speech in which he said,” In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together”.
President Kennedy also warned of this growing covert control. He spoke clearly of it when he said, “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence — on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.”
Now in 2017, we see this secret oligarchic society openly opposing the will of the people worldwide. We see how 0.1% now controls 96% of the global wealth and we understand how money and power are enslaving the world’s population to the point that education is now considered unnecessary for the masses. Health care is a privilege, and war is for profit, not honor or security. We have been forced to relinquish our rights for so-called “national security”. The Nut Jobs were right all along.
Still, however, many refuse to face this reality so let’s try again and more clearly state exactly what reality is. It is unmistakably clear that our federal government’s national security apparatus faces opposition from an ever-expanding and ever-ramifying network of individuals and groups that are prepared to subvert the Constitution, the rule of law and our national security interests in order to advance their own ideological pre-commitments.
One way to think of this network is a shadow government, a metaphor that has attained a progressively larger public profile over the past several months. This network denotes individuals and groups bound together by a common ideological worldview that takes precedence over norms of democratic governance. To understand this issue more intelligibly, it is useful to define the term shadow government. Several related ideas and concepts undergird this term.
First, the term shadow government issues forth from the notion of a shadow cabinet. The term shadow cabinet originated out of parliamentary forms of government wherein the losing party in an election campaign appoints members of its party to “shadow” officials appointed by the ruling party. Members of the shadow cabinet are selected by party leaders to represent the party’s own political interests, a process that is advanced by publicly critiquing the policy agenda of the party in power.
Second, in our non-parliamentary system, the idea of a shadow government, secret government, or invisible government signifies that real and actual political power resides or ought to reside, not with elected representatives, but with private individuals, government bureaucrats, judges and elites, who exercise power and influence behind the scenes in order to bend the so-called arc of justice to favor their preferences. Power, in this view, is to be wielded by individuals who are linked by an overarching ideological agenda committed to an expansion of the administrative state, grounded in the proclivity of progressives to delegate power to unaccountable experts outside of the scrutiny of democratic institutions. That is, experts exercise power beyond the reach of the Constitution and democratically elected representatives including the President and Congress.
Third, properly appreciated, shadow government supporters maintain that the official elected government is, and ought to be, subservient to its shadow, which holds or ought to hold, true executive power. Shadow government proponents include members of the administrative bureaucracy. They believe that the government, or at least certain levers of government, ought to be secretly controlled by elites who wish to remain secretive about their desire to manipulate policy, that is, until one of their chosen representatives assumes presidential power.
On a global basis, this power elite have been proven to manipulate elections, control monetary systems, launder drug monies for their own drug peddling operations that secretly finance their power and influence over duly elected officials, wage wars and create chaos for financial benefit, and control the MSM to insure all goes without inflaming the victims (us) of their theft of our labor and our blood.
It is vitally important that we all come to grips with this reality. It is not a conspiracy. More importantly, unlike what this oligarchic group would now have us believe, we ARE NOT POWERLESS. Knowledge of the facts and the resolve to act in a socially responsible manner, we can stand up, speak up, and act up. Literally the very freedom of our families and children are at stake here. We act now or we may never again know freedom and prosperity. We may never again have the ability to control our own destinies. Sound over dramatic? Think about it. The facts are staring us right in the face.
