Exposed: New World Order Secret Societies That Run The World

May 29, 2017 1 comment

Secret societies have been in existence all throughout history. Elites, crazed by power and money, band together to exert maximum control over the masses.

Secret societies have been in existence all throughout history. Elites, crazed by power and money, band together to exert maximum control over the masses. In 2017 their influence is greater than ever – their tentacles reaching all aspects of our daily life through control of the economy, religion, education and politics. 

While the world may seem chaotic and confusing to those who are not in the know, those who have studied the history of international secret societies are blessed with an understanding of the evil agenda pushed by the cabal.

Why is it a blessing to understand the evil that is in our midst? Wouldn’t it be better to be naive and live with our heads in the sand? No. It is only through understanding this evil that we can fight back and reject the New World Order they are working towards.

This list of ten New World Order secret societies includes the Illuminati, Knights Templar, Freemasons and others, and exposes the perverted rituals they perform, revealing their true history and agenda.

Anonymous News reports:

1. Skull And Bones

Founded in 1832 by Yale University students, Skull and Bones is surrounded by conspiracy theories; the most popular being that the CIA founders were members of this secret society and that they still control it. The society has been criticized for everything — weird sexual acts, the Kennedy assassination, espionage and drug smuggling.

2. The Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg was started in 1954 in the Netherlands “to create an aristocracy of purpose,” mainly in the United States and Europe. Its members include some of the most powerful and highly influential people in the world — from the IMF’s top officials to presidents and EU leaders. The most famous conspiracy theories say, the group is run by the Nazis, it is trying to impose a one world government, and it runs the US Republican party.

3. The Freemasonry

The all-male group, formed in 1717 in London, has six million powerful members across the world. It is alleged that George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Winston Churchill, Mozart, and Harry Houdini were Freemasons. They are infamous for secret passwords, secret handshakes, designing the Pyramids, and plotting the French Revolution.

4. The Knights Templar

In 1119, nine knights founded the Knights Templar: a Catholic military order created to protect pilgrims traveling through the Holy Land, as well as guard the most sacred Christian treasures. Its non-combatant members developed the earliest forms of banking throughout Christendom, and built fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land. Though it was disbanded in 1312, it is said that the Freemasons are keeping the flame alive for the Knights Templar.

5. The Hashashin

The Hashashins, or the Assassins, one of the most fearsome of all the secret societies in the world, are known for assassinating their religious and political enemies, regardless of the number of security personnel guarding their targets. It is said that the group of legendary contract killers, formed in the late 11th century, were vanquished by the end of the 13th century but left its dangerous legacy in today’s Syria and Iran.

6. The Cadaver Society

A secret society of students at Washington and Lee University. It is rumored that underground passageways — which its members use to remain undetected — span the campus. It is speculated that the Cadaver Society serves as a branch of the Illuminati, a group that has control over powerful systems like banks and governments.

7. Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

Founded in the late 19th century, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was dedicated to the study of the occult, the paranormal, and metaphysics — and everything considered magical. The order, also known as the “Golden Dawn”, has been one of the single biggest influences on 20th century western occultism such as Wicca.

8. Ordo Templis Orientis

An international fraternal and religious society, Ordo Templis Orientis is modeled after the Freemasonry structure and centered on a degree of occultism. Many Ancient Egyptian Gods and the Devil are invoked during the rituals, which are sometimes performed naked, and use virgin priestesses, children, and priests.

9: Rosicrucians

Founded by a group of German Protestants in the early 15th century, the philosophical secret society was perceived as very dangerous at the time, as they reportedly used occult practices to bring about a global transformation. It is claimed they are the guiding force behind every significant revolution in modern history.

10. The Illuminati

Perhaps the most infamous cult of modern society, the Illuminati was formed to end superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. Made mostly of atheists, it is alleged that they conspire to establish a New World Order and gain political power by using the media to brainwash the masses.

Katy Perry Admits To Being An Illuminati Slave In ‘Bon Appetit’ Video

May 15, 2017 1 comment

Katy Perry publicly begged to join the Illuminati in 2014, and her new music video is drenched in occult symbology.

Nwo Report

Katy Perry is the ideal of the modern popstar – young, beautiful, controversial and completely controlled by the music industry Illuminati – so it’s no surprise that her sick and twisted new music video Bon Appétit is infused with Illuminati symbology.

Perry made public overtures to the Illuminati in 2014, flaunting herself and begging to join the secret society.

Listen,” she said to Rolling Stone, “if the Illuminati exist, I would like to be invited! I see all that shit, and I’m like, Come on, let me in! I want to be in the club!”

Fast forward three years and Katy Perry is basically demonic play dough. She has been at the forefront of the elite’s agenda for years now, and has completed the transaction of her soul to the industry.

Because of this Satan will never leave her alone.

Things began to turn sour for Katy Perry around the time she released Chained To The Rhythm, a song that heavily promotes the elite’s agenda. She introduced this song at the 2017 Grammy Awards (with a very symbolic live performance), but it was her statements to Ryan Seacrest before the show that really revealed her status as mind controlled slave.

Seacrest interviewed Perry and asked her about her brief hiatus from the music business. Her reply caused some controversy as it made fun of Britney Spears’ infamous head-shaving event.

It’s called taking care of your mental health, I haven’t shaved my head yet.

This comment cold-bloodedly mocked a traumatic event in Britney Spears’ life exactly ten years after it happened. It was like a ten-year anniversary “diss” from the elite to Britney Spears – through new slave Katy Perry.

What is sad about this comment is that the Illuminati have the same plans for Katy Perry.

Britney Spears bore all of the symptoms of a classic MK-ULTRA breakdown. “Rehab”, “mental evaluation hold” and forced ambulance rides can be code words for “mind control reprogramming”.

When attempting to escape MK programming, slaves often shave their heads – a gesture that makes them feel they are liberating themselves from their handler’s control. Spears’ breakdown was a failed attempt to escape. Since then, her demeanor has been described as “zombie-like”. She’s been under conservatorship, meaning that every aspect of her life is tightly controlled.

Amanda Bynes followed the same pattern. As did Kanye West.

What did Katy Perry do shortly afterward she mocked this sad event?

She shaved her head.


In the twisted symbolism of the Illuminati, short blonde hair indicates that the slave has recently been “messed with”.


In the midst of all of that, Katy Perry’s artistic output has become drenched in sickening Illuminati symbolism. Everything is soaked in MK-ULTRA, occult elite imagery. For instance, take a look at Katy Perry’s appearance at the Met Gala in May.


Katy Perry’s dress is the most Illuminati dress of all time.

Created for her by Jay-Z’s favorite designer Maison Margiela, the dress was the brightest of reds, which represents sacrifice in the occult.  The veil on her head also speaks of secrets and rituals. Veils are removed from brides’ heads when they are ready to consume their wedding. Being a slave of the elite is nothing less than a wedding … with the Lucifer.

But it gets worse.

The veil features an eye that covers one of Perry’s actual eyes. In other words, she was a walking, talking one-eye sign. In case you are unaware, the one-eye sign identifies pawns of the elite’s industry.

Around the one-eye sign the word “witness” is stitched. Eye witness. On each side of her head are two spiral pyramids that double in resembling horns.

Katy Perry is currently wallowing in deep Illuminati symbolism.

After the Met Gala, Perry posted a picture on Instagram that managed to flaunt herself and mock the “human cattle” at the same time. With a one-eye sign painted on her red thumbnail, Katy Perry held up a copy of the New York Times.

May 2, 2017. All the news that's fit to print ☝🏼❤️@nytimes

A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on

The top of the newspaper could easily have been cropped to avoid the accusations of insensitivity that came her way. But that wouldn’t suit the Illuminati’s agenda. Death, chaos and destruction are there to be celebrated, according to the elite.

In occult ritual, the season of sacrifice is associated with hardships and humiliation. As an industry slave, Katy appears to be the current “chosen one” to undergo the bizarre ritual drama that the elite need to have enacted in real life, for mass consumption, across mainstream media.

[Angelina Jolie Exposes Illuminati Rituals In Leaked Video]

At the Met Gala, Katy Perry performed her new song entitled Bon Appétit. As you can probably imagine, the song is not about gastronomy. It is about sex. More precisely, it is about her being a Beta Kitten – a sexual slave of the elite. Here’s a part of the chorus:

‘Cause I’m all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon appétit, baby


Her performance at the Met Gala was suffused with sick MK Ultra symbolism.

Make no mistake, Katy Perry’s string of recent controversies, bizarre outfits and disturbing songs and videos are not random. They follow the same pattern that keeps playing out at the top of the music industry. The machinations are recognizable. The signs, symptoms and symbols are all there.

Katy Perry sold her soul to the industry and is now deep in the Illuminati system. There is no way back.

Globalist David Rockefeller Dead at 101

Central banker well-known for pushing “world government”

Globalist David Rockefeller Dead at 101


David Rockefeller, a globalist central banker who advocated a “New World Order” and mass population control while wielding vast influence over world leaders, died Monday at the age of 101.

A family spokesman, Fraser P. Seitel, confirmed his passing.

Rockefeller was well-known for openly bragging about the transnational elite’s plans to centralize control over the world’s populations, wealth and resources.

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it,” he wrote in his book Memoirs.

Rockefeller also revealed the extent of corporate media collusion with this gameplan.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years … It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years,” he said at the 1991 Bilderberg meeting. “But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.”

“The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

Little of that has changed since 1991; currently, the media outlets Rockefeller mentioned all venomously oppose President Trump.

Even more, the New York Times showered Rockefeller with praise in its obituary:

His stature was greater than any corporate title might convey, however. His influence was felt in Washington and foreign capitals, in the corridors of New York City government, art museums, great universities and public schools.

Mr. Rockefeller could well be the last of an increasingly less visible family to have cut so imposing a figure on the world stage. As a peripatetic advocate of the economic interests of the United States and of his own bank, he was a force in global financial affairs and in his country’s foreign policy. He was received in foreign capitals with the honors accorded a chief of state.

Interestingly, the NYT mentioned Rockefeller’s Memoirs, but didn’t mention his advocation of world government.

But here’s a breakdown of Rockefeller’s agenda and how he was connected with other world elites with the same views:

And here’s a video of Rockefeller’s last moments surrounded by other elites (satire):

Media Stays Silent as 2 Major Child Trafficking Rings Busted

March 19, 2017 Leave a comment

The mainstream media remained very quiet on 2 international high level government child trafficking rings when they were exposed recently, begging the question: why?


Child trafficking is a growing problem. So horrendous, in fact, that Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney said that if child trafficking were actually investigated in the United States, it would destroy both Democrats and Republicans alike as it goes all the way to the top of the food chain.

This may be why mainstream media remained very quiet on 2 international high level government child trafficking rings when they were exposed recently. 

One such ring busted involved NGOs and a child welfare officer in the North Bengal region of India.  The State’s Criminal Investigative Department (CID) arrested Sasmita Ghosh, a District Child Protection Officer (DCPO), in the process of uncovering a mass child trafficking ring.

“The CID had unearthed the child trafficking racket during raids at homes and nursing homes in Baduria area of North 24 Parganas district, in Behala in the southern fringes of Kolkata and some other parts of south Bengal in November last year,” the Hindu reported.

Ghosh’s arrest was the seventh to occur during these investigations which came to light after a child care home owner was arrested. A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member’s name also cropped up, Juhi Chowdhury, leading to explosive accusations from the right-wing party’s president Dilip Ghosh, accusing the media of deliberately tarnishing the political party’s image over child trafficking allegations.

Only this week the senior BJP leader was noted as being set to become the next president of India.

The child trafficking ring is said to have been an elaborate set up. Abortion clinics in the area sold babies after convincing pregnant women to keep their children, on the black market for up to $4,500 USD. The babies, once born, would be taken to nursing homes where they would remain until sold into the sex slave industry.

“It is a huge network of NGOs, nursing homes, doctors and middlemen dealing in illegal adoption and baby trafficking that the police have busted. Our men are now building on the huge leads they have already got in this case,” Rajesh Kumar, CID’s Additional Director General said.

Many corpses of children have since been discovered related to the ring, and reports suggest many of the children were sold on to foreigners.

The second case also involved a child protective services worker in Niger. Babies were stolen or seized from their mothers to give to the society’s elite who suffered fertility issues. Thirty or so children were abducted for this ring.

child trafficking

The western mainstream media remained silent on the two high level child trafficking rings, both of which involve the elites in their respective countries. In India, the Hindu news outlet was accused by the BJP as making the story up to bring down the political party.

Although it’s easier to scoff at “pizza gate” in the United States rather than question it, the possibility of a child trafficking ring involving American elites is high, and questions should be asked.

The UK demonstrated in their Westminster troubles how easy it occurs. Those once held in the highest regard in British parliament and entertainment are now considered to be amongst the worst of the worst in paedophilia offenders. Former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath and Jimmy Savile are two examples.

There remains a deep dread for the media to speak up and investigate to the best of their ability “pizza gate” type claims. Do they fear being labelled conspiracy theorists, or simply just ‘crazy’? Maybe they fear uncovering their corporate sponsors and state politicians’ dirty business? Maybe they fear to incriminate too many elites…

If these types of child trafficking rings exist elsewhere in the world, they most certainly exist in the United States. As Cynthia McKinney said, after Trump announced that he would bring the “full force and weight” of the services available to him to end the trafficking trade, this most certainly exists in the US and goes all the way to the top.

Spicer: There’s ‘No Question’ Deep State at Work in Government

“I don’t think it should come as any surprise there are people that burrowed into government.”

Spicer: There's 'No Question' Deep State at Work in Government

Friday at the White House press briefing, when asked if there is a “deep state” of government employees possibly loyal to the Obama administration’s agenda, press secretary Sean Spicer said, “I think that there’s no question when you have eight years of one party in office, there are people who stay in government — and continue to espouse the agenda of the previous administration.”

He continued, “So I don’t think it should come as any surprise there are people that burrowed into government during eight years of the last administration and may have believed in that agenda and want to continue to seek it. I don’t think that should come as a surprise.”

However, he added, it is “not part of the CIA’s mandate under any circumstances” to identify those people for dismissal.

8 Men To Rule Them All: Soros And Globalist Party Now Control More Than Half Of The World

January 18, 2017 Leave a comment



It was and has often been reported that only 62 people own more wealth than the bottom half of the entire world, which at roughly seven billion people, is about 3.6 billion. Most of the names on that list are American names who have amassed such wealth by dodging the tax code. There are instances of these billionaires paying less taxes than their office cleaning lady, which is where the rub comes in.

This is where some would say that Trump (who is nowhere near as rich as those on this list) himself has been questioned regarding his taxes, but that would be due to a lack of understanding of just what got Trump elected. Trump has already said that a lot of the things that he did were things that he had to do in order to keep his business afloat.

The reason is because the system is corrupt, and while he did the dance so to speak, he didn’t much care for the music. He see’s how the average American is losing even the opportunity for upward growth, and he has dedicated the remaining years of his life to stop it from happening any longer.


The kind of wealth that we are talking about is even greater than the wealth of people like George Soros, who uses his money to fund every New World Order initiative and anti-American hate group known to man.

For instance, Bill Gates, who also tends to side with any tax that will hurt the nation that made him the richest man alive, is worth $75 billion dollars. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is on the list, a man who has done many great injustices towards free speech. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is also on the list, a man is in favor of things that limit the Fourth Amendment all the way to down to what size soda pop a person may enjoy.

It is important to note that for conservatives and libertarians, this displeasure over great wealth may seem hypocritical, but it is not. For one thing, true free market principles would say that Mark Zuckerberg has every right to earn as much as he can, and if he reaches too far, the economy will cut him down as a matter of economic fluxing and readjusting. Well, this is exactly what we are seeing in the mass rebellion against many of these people’s business practices.

To continue using Zuckerberg as an example, is it permissible to earn as much possible if it means doing things like manipulating the traffic of the site to media that is paid for over those that just sign up? If so, where is this stated in the account agreement?


When many of these people along with those of nefarious motives like the Rothschild’s (not on the list, but not exactly in the free cheese line, either) attend meetings like Bilderberg, which see’s a meeting that breaks the Logan Act by allowing elected leaders to meet without the oversight of the people or the media, then it is not a matter of gaining wealth by fair means. Those of the free market mindset also are of a FAIR market mindset, as well. What many of these men are doing is akin to a street thug holding up a person at gunpoint and claiming that it is his American right.

Those in the know are saying that if this kind of lopsided injustice is allowed to continue, then we are going to see more things like the election of Donald Trump and the recent Brexit. The market is really “the people”, and the people have had enough. Promoted music videos have been used to make us as dumb as a post, media lies have painted everything that has made America really great as something to be apologized for, and all the while those at the very top are dodging their taxes….which brings us to..Trump, again.


Trump, as mentioned prior, has also been no stranger to this world by his own words. He has confessed to using the only life jacket available when the market crashes engineered by special interests happen. The lobbyists buy the politicians who write laws to shield them.

Trump has shown the world that while these eight people may be the target that everyone is hurling darts at (and in some instances with good reason), they are not the problem alone. The problem is also the career politicians that write these laws.

They are the ones who make restrictions so high that business can no longer be done in America for an affordable rate. Politicians write the tax code that shelters these 8 men, not these 8 men. The world is waking up to this fact, and with any luck, the awakening will keep mushrooming.

The saddest part is that people can make a good deal of money and not have to hole away more wealth than half of the planet (3.6 billion souls), which is number so vast that the only way to put it into perspective is to say that the average night sky alive with every star that can be seen with the naked eye is less than 10,000. It would take 300,000 TIMES more stars to equal three billion, minus the .6 billion!


People like Craig Newmark who is even a huge leftist, non-religious Jew, who is thought to suffer from symptoms similar to Asperger’s disease who not only created Craigs List, but has kept it free, can flouish. This has lead to millions of people (including this author) finding opportunities that they could never afford otherwise. Newark somehow “gets by” on “only” $400 million dollars…all without ads. Not to mention, he has helped millions of people will this creation.

That there, despite his (gag) support of John Kerry for president, is what the American dream is supposed to be about. Not every dime needs to be made at the expense of everyone else in order to have a life that is lavish and offspring who inherit riches. Not everyone is going to be able to create something that has $400 million dollars in worth either, but one thing is absolutely certain; more people will if the same rules apply to everyone and if taxes are low enough to allow for growth.

The USA needs to again make things, and if the only person who is going to point these truths out is Donald Trump, then may God bless Donald Trump. If we keep denying what is happening in the economy, then the fact that 1 in 10 people live on only $2 is going to worsen. When that happens, history books proclaim that upheavals happen and people go to war.

Nations fall, and economies crash. Hopefully, these 8 people can afford a history book.

The Path To Total Dictatorship: America’s “Shadow Government” And Its Silent Coup

January 8, 2017 1 comment


Source: The Rutherford Institute

This incisive article was first published on October 26, 2016, less than two weeks before the November 8 elections.

“Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system … a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state….

The important point to remember about this group is not its ideology but its organization… It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government…. This group … is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts. It is practically irremovable.”— Senator William Jenner, 1954 speech

Unaffected by elections. Unaltered by populist movements. Beyond the reach of the law.

Say hello to America’s shadow government.

A corporatized, militarized, entrenched bureaucracy that is fully operational and staffed by unelected officials who are, in essence, running the country, this shadow government represents the hidden face of a government that has no respect for the freedom of its citizenry.

No matter which candidate wins the presidential election, this shadow government is here to stay. Indeed, as recent documents by the FBI reveal, this shadow government—also referred to as “The 7th Floor Group”—may well have played a part in who will win the White House this year.

To be precise, however, the future president will actually inherit not one but two shadow governments.

The first shadow government, referred to as COG or Continuity of Government, is made up of unelected individuals who have been appointed to run the government in the event of a “catastrophe.” COG is a phantom menace waiting for the right circumstances—a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, an economic meltdown—to bring it out of the shadows, where it operates even now. When and if COG takes over, the police state will transition to martial law.


Yet it is the second shadow government—also referred to as the Deep State—that poses the greater threat to freedom right now. Comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes, this government within a government is the real reason “we the people” have no real control over our government.

The Deep State, which “operates according to its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power,” makes a mockery of elections and the entire concept of a representative government.

So who or what is the Deep State?

It’s the militarized police, which have joined forces with state and federal law enforcement agencies in order to establish themselves as a standing army. It’s the fusion centers and spy agencies that have created a surveillance state and turned all of us into suspects. It’s the courthouses and prisons that have allowed corporate profits to take precedence over due process and justice.

It’s the military empire with its private contractors and defense industry that is bankrupting the nation. It’s the private sector with its 854,000 contract personnel with top-secret clearances, “a number greater than that of top-secret-cleared civilian employees of the government.” It’s what former congressional staffer Mike Lofgren refers to as “a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies”: the Department of Defense, the State Department, Homeland Security, the CIA, the Justice Department, the Treasury, the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a handful of vital federal trial courts, and members of the defense and intelligence committees.

It’s every facet of a government that is no longer friendly to freedom and is working overtime to trample the Constitution underfoot and render the citizenry powerless in the face of the government’s power grabs, corruption and abusive tactics.

These are the key players that drive the shadow government.

This is the hidden face of the American police state that will continue long past Election Day.

Just consider some of the key programs and policies advanced by the shadow government that will continue no matter who occupies the Oval Office.

Domestic surveillance. No matter who wins the presidential popularity contest, the National Security Agency (NSA), with its $10.8 billion black ops annual budget, will continue to spy on every person in the United States who uses a computer or phone. Thus, on any given day, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior. Local police have been outfitted with a litany of surveillance gear, from license plate readers and cell phone tracking devices to biometric data recorders. Technology now makes it possible for the police to scan passersby in order to detect the contents of their pockets, purses, briefcases, etc. Full-body scanners, which perform virtual strip-searches of Americans traveling by plane, have gone mobile, with roving police vans that peer into vehicles and buildings alike—including homes. Coupled with the nation’s growing network of real-time surveillance cameras and facial recognition software, soon there really will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

Global spying. The NSA’s massive surveillance network, what the Washington Post refers to as a $500 billion “espionage empire,” will continue to span the globe and target every single person on the planet who uses a phone or a computer. The NSA’s Echelon program intercepts and analyzes virtually every phone call, fax and email message sent anywhere in the world. In addition to carrying out domestic surveillance on peaceful political groups such as Amnesty International, Greenpeace and several religious groups, Echelon has also been a keystone in the government’s attempts at political and corporate espionage.

Roving TSA searches. The American taxpayer will continue to get ripped off by government agencies in the dubious name of national security. One of the greatest culprits when it comes to swindling taxpayers has been the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), with its questionable deployment of and complete mismanagement of millions of dollars’ worth of airport full-body X-ray scanners, punitive patdowns by TSA agents and thefts of travelers’ valuables. Considered essential to national security, TSA programs will continue in airports and at transportation hubs around the country.

USA Patriot Act, NDAA. America’s so-called war on terror, which it has relentlessly pursued since 9/11, will continue to chip away at our freedoms, unravel our Constitution and transform our nation into a battlefield, thanks in large part to such subversive legislation as the USA Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act. These laws completely circumvent the rule of law and the rights of American citizens. In so doing, they re-orient our legal landscape in such a way as to ensure that martial law, rather than the U.S. Constitution, is the map by which we navigate life in the United States. These laws will continue to be enforced no matter who gets elected.

Militarized police state. Thanks to federal grant programs allowing the Pentagon to transfer surplus military supplies and weapons to local law enforcement agencies without charge, police forces will continue to be transformed from peace officers into heavily armed extensions of the military, complete with jackboots, helmets, shields, batons, pepper-spray, stun guns, assault rifles, body armor, miniature tanks and weaponized drones.

Having been given the green light to probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts, America’s law enforcement officials, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, will continue to keep the masses corralled, controlled, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

SWAT team raids. With more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year on unsuspecting Americans by local police for relatively routine police matters and federal agencies laying claim to their own law enforcement divisions, the incidence of botched raids and related casualties will continue to rise. Nationwide, SWAT teams will continue to be employed to address an astonishingly trivial array of criminal activity or mere community nuisances including angry dogs, domestic disputes, improper paperwork filed by an orchid farmer, and misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Domestic drones. The domestic use of drones will continue unabated. As mandated by Congress, there will be 30,000 drones crisscrossing the skies of America by 2020, all part of an industry that could be worth as much as $30 billion per year. These machines, which will be equipped with weapons, will be able to record all activities, using video feeds, heat sensors and radar. An Inspector General report revealed that the Dept. of Justice has already spent nearly $4 million on drones domestically, largely for use by the FBI, with grants for another $1.26 million so police departments and nonprofits can acquire their own drones.

School-to-prison pipeline. The paradigm of abject compliance to the state will continue to be taught by example in the schools, through school lockdowns where police and drug-sniffing dogs enter the classroom, and zero tolerance policies that punish all offenses equally and result in young people being expelled for childish behavior. School districts will continue to team up with law enforcement to create a “schoolhouse to jailhouse track” by imposing a “double dose” of punishment: suspension or expulsion from school, accompanied by an arrest by the police and a trip to juvenile court.

Overcriminalization. The government bureaucracy will continue to churn out laws, statutes, codes and regulations that reinforce its powers and value systems and those of the police state and its corporate allies, rendering the rest of us petty criminals. The average American now unknowingly commits three felonies a day, thanks to this overabundance of vague laws that render otherwise innocent activity illegal. Consequently, small farmers who dare to make unpasteurized goat cheese and share it with members of their community will continue to have their farms raided.

Privatized Prisons. States will continue to outsource prisons to private corporations, resulting in a cash cow whereby mega-corporations imprison Americans in private prisons in order to make a profit. In exchange for corporations buying and managing public prisons across the country at a supposed savings to the states, the states have to agree to maintain a 90% occupancy rate in the privately run prisons for at least 20 years.

Endless wars. America’s expanding military empire will continue to bleed the country dry at a rate of more than $15 billion a month (or $20 million an hour). The Pentagon spends more on war than all 50 states combined spend on health, education, welfare, and safety. Yet what most Americans fail to recognize is that these ongoing wars have little to do with keeping the country safe and everything to do with enriching the military industrial complex at taxpayer expense.

Are you getting the message yet?

The next president, much like the current president and his predecessors, will be little more than a figurehead, a puppet to entertain and distract the populace from what’s really going on.

As Lofgren reveals, this state within a state, “concealed behind the one that is visible at either end of Pennsylvania Avenue,” is a “hybrid entity of public and private institutions ruling the country according to consistent patterns in season and out, connected to, but only intermittently controlled by, the visible state whose leaders we choose.”

The Deep State not only holds the nation’s capital in thrall, but it also controls Wall Street (“which supplies the cash that keeps the political machine quiescent and operating as a diversionary marionette theater”) and Silicon Valley.

This is fascism in its most covert form, hiding behind public agencies and private companies to carry out its dirty deeds.

It is a marriage between government bureaucrats and corporate fat cats.

As Lofgren concludes:

[T]he Deep State is so heavily entrenched, so well protected by surveillance, firepower, money and its ability to co-opt resistance that it is almost impervious to change… If there is anything the Deep State requires it is silent, uninterrupted cash flow and the confidence that things will go on as they have in the past. It is even willing to tolerate a degree of gridlock: Partisan mud wrestling over cultural issues may be a useful distraction from its agenda.

In other words, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, as long as government officials—elected and unelected alike—are allowed to operate beyond the reach of the Constitution, the courts and the citizenry, the threat to our freedoms remains undiminished.

So the next time you find yourselves despondent over the 2016 presidential candidates, remember that it’s just a puppet show intended to distract you from the silent coup being carried out by America’s shadow government.
