Redefining the Deep State

It is interesting that the idea of a "deep state" now enjoys wide currency, whereas, as Mac Slavo points out, previously it was dismissed as a conspiracy theory. 

Like many conspiracy theories, the deep state actually exists, it can be tested and demonstrated and illustrated with innumerable historical examples. 

WikiPedia states
“The concept of a deep state suggests that there exists a coordinated effort by career government employees and others to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership.” (Italics mine). 

The entry then correctly notes that the concept of the deep state originated within analysis of the Turkish polity, but admits that the term is achieving wide penetration due to the influential writing of Marc Abinder, David W. Brown, Peter Dale Scott, and Mike Lofgren

The entry then adopts Mr.  Lofgren's definition: 
"I use the term to mean a hybrid association of elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry that is effectively able to govern the United States without reference to the consent of the governed as expressed through the formal political process." (Italics mine).
Mike Lofgren, The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government, 2016. 

This definition deftly explicates the and others that I italicized above, as "parts of top-level finance and industry," a characterization that I accept, though I insist that any definition of the deep state that omits to mention the essential roles of the mainstream media and the alternative media is incomplete.

Indeed, most visible deep state activity today involves weaponized anonymous leaks to media.

While Mr. Lofgren's definition has many correct elements, I do not think that the deep state “effectively governs the United States.” Rather, deep state actors compete and collaborate with other power centers within and without the US government, and sometimes they succeed, and sometimes they fail. They often fall short of the benchmark that Mr. Lofgren proposes of "effectively governing the United States."


External protagonists like President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin perceive, for example, that "there is no change" between Democrat and Republican administrations. 

From Mr. Putin's position as an external observer, the bureaucratic elites that manage government policies on a daily basis remain in place no matter who is elected. 

While this assessment would reinforce a perception that the deep state is monolithic and successful in "effectively governing" America, such an assessment lacks crucial nuance.

Here are links to the Oliver Stone interviews with Vladimir Putin on YouTube.

Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOeOcnng0to
Part 4: https://youtu.be/avr4gGxNP4k

The Wiki entry on the deep state seems to be obsessed with eschewing the idea that most deep state activity is by definition conspiratorial, as the editors on the article’s talk page fear the label of “conspiracy theorists.” 

I do not fear conspiracy as an historical mechanism, and I think that it would be accurate to say that most deep state actors, depending on how they are comprised on a case by case basis, engage in conspiratorial behavior, particularly when you accept that deep state actors often act as members of cabals

This observation then suggests that some deep state actors conspire in cabals, and that these cabals have some persistence. There are many cabals within the factions of the deep state, and some members of them collaborate with other cabals, or even participate in multiple cabals. But while some cabals are persistent, many come and go. They can be dynamic. 

This may be a reflection of the Special Access Program concept of compartmentalization, a fundamental principle in the intelligence community, which many deep state actors work for, or previously worked for. Compartmentalization is a natural characteristic of conspiratorial deep state behavior. 

Such cabals are often not persistent at all, they form to support specific purposes, and then they dissolve naturally when the purpose that brought them together is resolved. 

What is persistent are the deep state factions from which cabals manifest. It seems self evident that an ill-defined, barely detectable, amorphous entity that often acts in defiance of formal political processes exists. What we cannot define are its margins. 

This essay is an attempt to refine our definition of the deep state and to consequently help us identify its margins and its functioning. 

It is important to add that some deep state members act alone, they do not always conspire with others, aside from their collusion with members of the media. So there are limits to the thesis that deep state actors conspire in cabals. Sometimes deep state leakers act alone, as singletons

I have long said that the dominant struggle of our era is between globalism and nationalism, and one of the primary contemporary battlegrounds is between unelected deep state operatives and our elected government. Deep state activity is hence often illicit, if not illegal, though not always. 

We watch it manifesting in the mainstream media almost every day. But deep state phenomena originates from within government, and sometimes from outside government, from former government employees or appointees, from lobbying firms, from think tanks, from corporations, or Wall Street, or from organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations, or the Trilateral Commission, or even the Bilderberg Group

This observation accounts for infamous deep state operators like former Vice President Richard Cheney, surely one of the apex deep state operators of all time, former Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger

I think that the Trump administration proposal to reduce the size of government must be seen within this context. If you reduce the size of government, you reduce the very financial oxygen that some elements of the deep state suck in order to exist. 

I believe that shrinking the size of the government will also curtail the number of those bureaucrats who engage in deep state activities. Smaller budgets will force them to prioritize statutory responsibilities, and leave them with less time to plot. 

Mr. Stephen Bannon, Chief Strategist for the President, calls this concept, "the deconstruction of the administrative state." 

I also suspect that the liberal elite media collusion that dominates mainstream consciousness today is orchestrated by a cabal led by former director of the Hillary Clinton campaign, John Podesta

Mr. Podesta has a long pedigree in government service, serving as White House Chief of Staff for President Clinton, but most interestingly for this discussion, between 1994-6, he was appointed by President Clinton to the Commission on Protecting and Reducing Government Secrecy, also known as the Moynihan Secrecy Commission. 

As a result of this appointment, Mr. Podesta rubbed shoulders with mandarins of the intelligence community like former DCI John M. Deutch, former Director of the National Reconnaissance Organization Martin C. Faga, and Mr. Maurice Sonnenberg, member of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board

Mr. Podesta was long in government service, so even though he was not a formally trained intelligence officer, he was in a position to soak up enabling skills: the cellular organization of Special Activity Programs and similar entities, compartmentalization, and other tradecraft.

One thing that Mr. Podesta did not learn: cybersecurity. And this was his downfall, resulting in the contents of his Gmail inbox published on WikiLeaks, in a series of breaches which may have cost his candidate the 2016 presidential election.

The WikiLeaks Podesta email breach exposed Clinton campaign and media collusion in irrefutable detail. It appears that the cabal coordinated by Mr. Podesta persists, coexists and collaborates with a remnant shadow government within the Obama Foundation

The incipient Obama political machine harbors former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, former Director of Central Intelligence John Brennan, and protagonists like Dr. Evelyn Farkas, a former Deputy Assistance Secretary of Defense who shamelessly admitted leaking classified information on MSNBC.

We got an historic glimpse into the ways that such cabals operate with the Podesta email leaks published by WikiLeaks. Those leaks revealed many other secrets, but media collusion is one that is less contentious: it was indisputable. 

I have said that the deep state is not monolithic, it is characterized by dissident and loyalist conspiratorial cabals and singletons, it is not broadly cohesive, it is amorphous, dynamic and fluid, and most importantly, there are factions within the deep state, and President Donald J. Trump has his own deep state defenders and his own loyalists among them. 

Trump supporters in the deep state are leaking to 4chan, to InfoWars, to Breitbart, to Dr. Steve Pieczenik, to the inimitable political operative Roger Stone, to YouTube journalists Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and David Seaman, and even to me.

You have to ask whether such leakers can properly be considered as part of the deep state, as they support the elected government. I think that they must be included in our refined definition of the deep state. 

They remain part of those bureaucratic and extra-governmental  elites that persist across elections, they collaborate with actors within government contractors, think tanks, lobbying firms, and both defense corporations and Wall Street, and they function secretly, favoring whispers and weaponized leaks. 

It does not matter whether deep state operatives favor or disfavor the elected government. They are defined, rather, by their actions, by the ways that they operate. Is a leak to Alex Jones different from a leak to Maggie Haberman? As a political scientist I look at roles and functions and less at partisan loyalties. 

Our revised definition of the deep state would hence be: 

"Dynamic conspiratorial cabals and singletons drawn from persistent factions of government, former government employees and appointees, and elite members of finance, media and industry, that exploit the cult of secrecy and collude, often serving as sources for anonymous leaks of classified information to the media in order to influence the policies of the United States, often in defiance of the formal political process."

While I do not explicitly state that some deep state actors act in support of the elected government, saying that they often act in defiance of the formal political process does not say that they always act in defiance of the formal political process.

As I say, President Trump has his adherents within the factions of the deep state, and they do act to benefit his administration. 

A ZeroHedge article that incited me to write this analysis claims that factions within the current deep state are attempting to undermine the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, and they are actively seeking his overthrow. 

Such a development would not be unique in American politics, as we saw the assassination of President John F. Kennedy happen before our very eyes, and then witnessed the coverup with the empanelment of the Warren Commission

Other examples can be drawn, for example the Iran-Contra scandals that consumed the presidency of President Ronald Reagan, and the grandfather of all political conspiracies, Watergate, which saw an Assistant Director of the FBI, Mark Felt, as Deep Throat whispering into the ears of journalists Woodward and Bernstein in effecting yet another coup. 

It is interesting to me that some members of the FBI are repeatedly seen acting despite its apolitical culture for their own sometimes quite partisan and personal reasons. 

There are, for example, some observers who claim that disgraced former Director of the FBI James Comey undermined the political impartiality of that agency when he outlined numerous violations of federal statutes and then failed to recommend that Hillary Clinton and her aides be referred for indictment to the DOJ in a scandal now known as ServerGate.  

Those who are familiar with Mr. Comey's personal history understand that he is very much a Clinton loyalist, he acted repeatedly over many years in ways that benefited the Clinton political machine. 

Indeed, some analysts consider Mr. Comey a core participant in deep state resistance to the Trump administration, and it is in retrospect no surprise that he was fired in disgrace by President Trump. President Trump had no alternative. Some of Mr. Comey's FBI associates characterized him to me as a "viper."

Students of Watergate ask why Associate Director Mark Felt betrayed his country, though some defenders claim that his treason was motivated by love of country and intended to counteract abuses of executive branch power by the Nixon regime. 

In the end analysis, it appears that Mr. Felt's motives were quite pedestrian. This deep state singleton was mad that Nixon did not nominate him as Director after the death of J. Edgar Hoover, who was surely the ultimate deep state operator of all time. 

Was that the reason that Nixon was hounded out of office? Because a bureaucrat was mad at him? I must remember to ask Roger Stone (@RogerJStoneJr) this question. He witnessed those events at close range. 

We ask ourselves today, why are cabals within factions of the current deep state plaguing President Trump? The obvious reasons are partisan politics, ideological opposition to the political and cultural values that President Trump embodies, and both neocon and neoliberal preferences for Hillary Clinton, who would have facilitated a seamless consolidation of those factions that embedded themselves throughout government during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. 

Indeed, Obama regime loyalists now witness the Trump administration rolling back policies which they long labored to implement, like participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or the Paris Climate Accord. As they gnash their teeth, they plot, and they leak, and they wage an orchestrated campaign to undermine the legitimacy of an elected president with palpable contempt for those deplorable Americans who voted him into office. 

One thing that confuses me is, President Trump appears to be throwing more money at the military industrial complex than even Madame Clinton would have. You would think that this would appease many deep state actors, particularly those from the defense industry. 

Apparently not, at least, not in this case. The predominate opposition deep state actors of this era appear to be acting primarily for partisan political reasons, exploiting the cult of secrecy, wielding weaponized classified information and illegal leaks. 

It all seems so petty to me. I used to work for the US government myself. We considered ourselves outside politics. We served in the executive branch at the convenience of the president, and we followed his directives in all things. Yes, at times, bureaucratic friction would be introduced when we did not like policies, but we did not presume to oppose a sitting president. 

This may be because the agency that I worked in, DEA, consisted during that era, the early 1990's, predominately of former military personnel. The military is historically and traditionally considered to be apolitical. Indeed, this is a defining characteristic of US political culture, one that we believe differentiates us from banana republics. 

I suspect that this is one of the primary reasons that the military as an institution is the most popular among the American electorate. It is perceived to be apolitical. 

The irony of course is that the Pentagon and the defense industry are hotbeds of deep state activity, in the endless battles over budgets, weapons systems, and contracts. 

Regardless, the American people perceive that the generals obey the executive branch, no matter how asinine our wars may be. 

And we are definitely fighting irrational wars now, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. Nobody can explain why we are fighting those wars. Is it because the Pentagon wants those wars? For oil? For geopolitics? To justify its own existence and the financial windfall represented by the Trump administration? 

Is it to "knock the hell out of ISIS?" Terrorism increasingly appears to be an insufficient rationale for military conflict, terrorism is rather a pretext for more invasive domestic surveillance and enhanced security in many nations, justifying increased expenditures. 

While US government spokesmen said recently that US policy in Syria is focused on combatting ISIS, deep state actors succeeded in establishing regime change as an unstated strategic goal of the United States in Syria. 

I remind you that US forces are uninvited invaders in Syria, and they are acting without even an Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) from the Congress, much less a Declaration of War.

Nobody can explain what our overarching strategic goals are. Nobody can define simple "victory" in any of those wars. 

Some deep state actors are agitating for deeper military involvement in Syria, for a renewed effort in Afghanistan, and for an escalation of the long state of conflict between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States.

Our dispute with North Korea could erupt into open warfare at any time. That seems to suit some deep state actors just fine. 

Strange times.

Do Not Worry About Bitcoin

Some in the Bitcoin community are dreading SegWit, short for Segregated Witness, and the imminent BIP148 upgrade to Bitcoin, scheduled to happen before August 1, 2017. 

BIP148 is not to be feared. Part of the network can choose to implement it and the other can retain the original software. As currently configured, BIP48 is a soft fork, meaning that the change can be partially implemented and adopted universally after a majority of network miners support it. 

SegWit2X, the current iteration of Segregated Witness, is scheduled for implementation on 21 July. It proposes to create a hard fork six months later, meaning that backward compatibility would not be feasible after that time, as unlike a soft fork a hard fork is not reconcilable. 

The fear is that this hard fork could cause a split in Bitcoin like the one that happened with Ethereum. There are two types of Ethereum, one of which is called Ethereum Classic, for obvious reasons.

SegWit is a development by the longstanding team supporting Bitcoin Core. What SegWit does, among many things, is it increases Bitcoin's block size limit, addressing concerns about scalability.

The blockchain consists of consecutive blocks of transactions, it is a running ledger of all transactions that have taken place using Bitcoin since its inception. The blocks currently are 1MG in size, this limit is hard coded into the software.

Bitcoin watchers perceive that the blockchain is struggling to keep up with the number of transactions that users are executing every minute. Transactions are getting processed, but delays are creeping into the system, and the problem is becoming worse, undermining one of the primary advantages of blockchain technology: rapid response.

SegWit2X increases the block size to 2MB, though actual block sizes could exceed 4MB, as SegWit also includes an increase to the block size limit. Most analysts expect the blockchain will increase to between 2 and 2.1MB immediately after SegWit is implemented.

I do not worry about these issues. If I have to wait a few days before Coinbase credits my account, I do not stress about it. They honor the price of Bitcoin at the time of purchase, and nobody gets cheated.

I am confident that these issues will work themselves out. Bitcoin is a technology with a limitless potential, and everybody using it wants it to succeed. So it will.

All that we users need to worry about is the price of Bitcoin. At the time that I wrote the early draft of this article, Bitcoin was plummeting, it dropped all the way down to $2214, and I consequently bought more.

I doubled down.

Of course, I am a very small investor. My total holdings at the time of this writing amounted to only $288. If I lost it all, it would suck, but I can absorb a $288 loss.

My bet was repaid. Bitcoin rebounded to $2752 by the time of this update. It appears to be rising strongly, and it is possible that this rally will continue. 

I am betting that the price of Bitcoin will rise. There are just too many favorable structural factors, particularly in Asia, to be ignored.

Hackers Will Hack

I wonder whether British Prime Minister Theresa May is as misinformed as she appears? Does she actually hope to control the internet? Apparently nobody told her that it is too late to even try. 

Bureaucrats who plot to impose backdoors in our software pretend that those backdoors cannot be cracked by hackers or by intelligence agencies. It may become a game of whack a mole, but no backdoor will remain uncompromised.

It has to be asked whether technocrats actually believe that the public will use software that is compromised? Secure open source solutions will emerge to compete, and we will vote with our wallets to use them instead. ProtonMail is one example, as is the GPG Suite for Apple Mail. Surely they know this. 

Even if companies like Microsoft and Google can be suborned to facilitate government backdoors, they will fear inevitable exposure. The inevitability of their exposure includes a forbidding economic and reputational cost. It is this fact, which software companies like Microsoft and Google understand very well, that informs their own resistance to government imposed backdoors.

Considering recent events, does anyone actually believe that backdoors will not be exposed by patriots within intelligence agencies? Never forget that there are factions within the deep state. Not all of them conspire to tear down President Donald J. Trump. 

Some of them are cypherpunks, loyal to the digital literati, to we, the digital proletariat. Some of them are sympathetic to the alt-right, and to the alternative media that you are reading at this precise moment. 

Even President Donald J. Trump​ has his own adherents in the deep state, and they are leaking to 4chan, to InfoWars, to Steve Pieczenik, to Roger Stone, to Mike Cernovich, to Jack Posobiec, to David Seaman, and even to me

Consider the last ten years of breaches published by WikiLeaks. Any backdoors created in encryption regimes will be compromised. Vault 7 proves it. Snowden proves it. Manning proves it. The Shadow Brokers prove it. Even  the recently arrested NSA leaker Reality Winning proves it. Leakers will leak. Daily deep state leaks to The New York Times and to The Washington Post prove it. 

We all see where this is going. In response, politicians will abuse Terrorism™ to justify huge investments in surveillance technology. Our compliant Congress will allocate massive black budgets, failing to exercise any degree of effective oversight, and these surveillance technologies will devastate the civil liberties of everybody else. Meaning us. 

Our best defense, of course, is the factor that governments fear and seek to undermine: encryption. 

If you correspond with me, you will notice that I include a PGP fingerprint at the bottom of every email. 

1B92CCE6D7FD8AC47E0B661DAC2E605DAA735DF0

On all my web pages, I link to KeyBase.io. KeyBase makes encrypted correspondence dead simple. Anybody can do it. 

If I need to discuss something sensitive, something financial, something private, I can do so. And I make no apologies for it, and I make no explanations. I reserve the right to be private, and it will be difficult for any state, any government, any authority, to stop me. 

What Mrs. Theresa May may not understand is that the self-repairing character of the internet means that it literally cannot be controlled. The internet routes around what it interprets as damage, and our packets take the cheapest route to their destination. This is inherent in its design.

The clearnet internet can be shadowed, and the Snowden disclosures confirm that NSA is using TREASUREMAP to do just that. NSA's FAIRVIEW confirms that all domestic internet traffic can be sniffed. But this does not mean that the global clearnet can be controlled. 

This slide from a briefing deck exfiltrated by Edward Snowden, just one example from the family jewels of NSA, explains TREASUREMAP, which seeks to shadow the entirety of the global internet. It was classified (TS) Top Secret, (SI) Signals Intelligence, related to the US intelligence community and to the SIGINT alliance Five Eye (FVEY). 

Mrs. May may succeed in imposing encryption bans within the UK, balkanizing a geographical segment of the clearnet. The Great Firewall of China, the digital wall, is one model. But even the Great Firewall has gaping technological holes in it. 

The Chinese literati use encryption, Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and TOR, The Onion Router, to defeat their Great Wall. "To stay unblocked in China is an endless rat race," one operator of VPNs said

Someday, the UN may succeed in imposing encryption bans worldwide. But there will always be a cabal of the digital proletariat who will find ways around it, through it, beneath it. Software engineers, network engineers, hackers, will distribute encryption solutions, software code classified as munitions, and no government, no intelligence agency, no human agency, can stop them.

Those of us who insist on using encryption at our whim cannot be stopped. How can I make such a statement with such confidence? Because of the deep web

We must all remember that the deep web represents the majority of the internet, analogous to an iceberg. It is unmapped. It is unmanageable. It is, literally, chaos. 

All manner of malfeasance happens on the deep web. Drug deals, child porn, death porn, software exploits, false IDs. But also, much legitimate private business. Dissidents in totalitarian countries use the deep web, as do government cyber specialists. 

The deep web is accessible to users of the encrypted network TOR.  While the US Naval Research Laboratory invented TOR, it is too late for any government agency to control it. Again, a genie got out of the bottle, and it cannot be put back in. 

No government can block the deep web. Indeed the biggest obstacle to wider usage of the deep web is the technical complexity involved in accessing it. 

Yes, governments succeed in compromising some dark web services. Silk Road and Silk Road 2.0 are the obvious examples. But how many more remain undetected? How many remain flourishing bastions of criminality? Nobody knows. 

Global surveillance is not the solution. Abrogating our civil liberties are not the solution.

Global surveillance will fail. Hackers will ensure that it fails, whether they are black hat hackers or white hat hackers or grey hat hackers. 

NSA tries to identify them and to hire them, and this is smart, but even those problematic geniuses cannot be trusted or controlled all the time. Vault 7 proves that. Snowden proves that. 

Who will you bet on? On the government hackers in intelligence agencies? Or on some 14 year old genius pecking at his keyboard in his parent's basement eating Cheetos? 

I got to go with the kid. Hackers will hack. 

It is part of the human condition.

David Seaman on the Historical Rothschilds

This video was posted by David Seaman a few weeks ago on May 29, 2017. It is an important video, for various reasons, so I gist it here and I quote liberally from David Seaman as he talks about the Rothschild banking family. 


At the time of this review this video on YouTube was seen by 17,372 viewers, and David Seaman had more than 150,184 subscribers. 

Mr. Seaman made this video on Memorial Day, 2017. He says that Memorial Day is a fitting time to discuss “the most manipulative and evil family on the planet, according to some researchers." 

Mr. Seaman says that the Rothschild family has benefited from a blanket media coverup for years, and that this media coverup is one of the “greatest conspiracies in history.” 

Then Mr. Seaman pauses and he asks his viewers to keep a thought in mind, while we watch this video: “a good currency is mined. A bad currency mines you.”

Mr. Seaman says that this video will be a “worthwhile rabbit hole,”  for us, and he hopes that we will write articles or make our own videos incorporating these ideas to take them viral. 

Well, here we go. 

Mr. Seaman says that Buzzfeed back in February published a hit piece targeting him, “How YouTube Serves as the Content Engine of the Internet’s Dark Side,” written by Joe Bernstein

Mr. Seaman pulls no punches: he says, “Joe Bernstein is a total piece of garbage, he is a bad human being,” explaining that Bernstein writes establishment pablum that is “on the wrong side of history.” 

The lede for this article runs, “Everyone knows that Twitter and Facebook spread bad information and hate speech. But YouTube, which pays for conspiracy theories seen by millions, may be even worse.” 

So Buzzfeed conflates Mr. Seaman and YouTube, claiming that they are an evil hybrid that flogs hateful content.

Establishment media, which Mr. Bernstein slavishly serves, is flapping around as it seeks to compete with alternative media, which flourishes primarily on YouTube. 

It can be said that Mr. Seaman is an alternative media icon, and there is no question that alternative media is eclipsing establishment media, illustrated by the fact that you are reading this article. You will not read this content in The New York Times

Bernstein’s article opens with, “David Seaman is the PizzaGate King of the internet.” Then Bernstein cites Mr. Seaman’s “66,000” followers on Twitter, (@d_seaman), which are now some 66,200, which is better than admitting that some 150,184 viewers subscribe to Mr. Seaman on YouTube.

Then Bernstein sets up the hit, saying that Mr. Seaman posts about “the secret cabal—including Rothschilds, Satanists, and the other nabobs of the New World Order—behind the nation’s best-known, super-duper-secret child sex ring under a DC pizza parlor.”

I previously posted a gisted transcript of a video by David Seaman with the title, "David Seaman, Revolutionary." That video addresses Bitcoin and the Luciferian pedophile elites in finance, media, Hollywood, and politics. 

Right. Mr. Seaman explains, “PizzaGate was never the claim that Hillary Clinton was slaughtering kids underneath a DC pizza shop.” 

This is an habitual mischaracterization, as nobody, no PizzaGate researcher, insists that a child sex ring is concealed in the nonexistent basement of Comet Ping Pong and Pizza, and no PizzaGate researcher claims that Hillary Clinton is slaughtering children beneath it. 

Critics insist that we do, however, so that they can disprove the fake contention and then claim that the entire PizzaGate conspiracy is false. 

Falsely reframing PizzaGate is how most mainstream media begins, “PizzaGate is fake news,” they proclaim, as if they are following a script. 

When you examine the Podesta WikiLeaks, when you read emails from innumerable journalists shamelessly colluding with the Clinton campaign, you realize that they probably are following a script. 

There is no question that they are aping talking points that are orchestrated for them. It is obvious. 

Mr. Seaman advises us that these campaigns are designed to redirect viewers and readers away from the WikiLeaks emails, which are the real basis for PizzaGate

But just a moment—what does Bernstein call out, even before that fake claim? 

The Rothschild family. Even before Seaman’s “satanic videos are mocked,” Bernstein defends the Rothschilds

Mr. Seaman asks, “so why do the Rothschilds specifically have to be protected here, even before my Satanic videos are mocked? It is the Rothschild claim that he first has to call out as intrinsically ridiculous.” 

Mr. Seaman dismisses the Buzzfeed article and Mr. Bernstein as “a dumb hit piece written by a dumb man, who will be forgotten by history.” Indeed, I am already forgetting them both, and I am sure that you are, as well.

Mr. Seaman reminds us that Sidney Blumenthal authored numerous emails that were captured in the Podesta WikiLeaks. Mr. Blumenthal also collaborated on ghostwritten articles intended for publication in mainstream media, mocking the notion that the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, and the Soros families exercise undue influence over American policies. 

Mr. Seaman then points out that Hillary’s personal calendar was published, and she was meeting often with members of the Soros family, with Rockefellers, and with Lady Lynn de Rothschild.  

Then Mr. Seaman asks why Lady Lynn de Rothschild blocked him on Twitter, observing that she “looks like a demented snowcrab.” He continues, “that is unusual, when Sydney Blumenthal makes it look like it is the most delusional conspiracy on the planet, that there are a handful of ruling families, so much wealthier than the rest of us.” 

“They buy politicians, they crisscross the globe in private jets, and when they get bored, they rape kids, they have weird occult rituals where they rape babies and young children on top of actual handkerchiefs, then they save the handkerchiefs as a kind of sick souvenir.” 

This infamous show flier from Comet Ping Pong features the pedophile art of Kim Noble, a favorite of the Podestas and James Alefantis. A handkerchief can be seen beneath the infant rape victim on the right. 

Mr. Seaman says that such people think that they are above the law, they think that they are almost a different species from the rest of us, really disgusting and predatory people.

Mr. Seaman says that this is what happens when generational, inherited money enables a small cabal of families to wield undue influence over modern politics. 

Mr. Seaman then asks us, his viewers, to tweet to Lady Rothschild, the demented snow crab, and ask her why she is blocking adversarial journalists from her twitterfeed.

In case any of us do not know who Mr. Seaman is talking about, he explains the origins of the Rothschild family, straight out of their Wiki

Mr. Seaman says that Mayer Amschel Rothschild was a Jew who lived in the Judengasse, the Jewish ghetto of Frankfurt. Through his banking activities, however, he gained great influence. 

Mr. Seaman then trots out perhaps the worst Rothschild quote, one which is attributed to Mayer Rothschild, but remains controversial, due to its unconfirmed sourcing. 

“Let me issue and control a nation’s money, and I care not who writes the laws.” 

Mr. Seaman observes that the Rothschilds realized that not only do you have to control the money of a nation, you also have to control its politicians. 

Mr. Seaman says, “Without owning the politicians, the people will switch to new forms of money, or they will revert back to gold and silver, so you always need to control the politicians, through blackmail, and through bribery, and through outright ownership, by being the biggest benefactors of their campaigns.”  


Mr. Seaman then tells us that at certain times, he gets a flash or an insight, and he can sometimes see deep into the future. He says, “I have seen this. I have seen the public outrage in the near future against these Rothschilds and against Soros, I have seen this one.”


He continues, “The amount of public outrage is like nothing that these people ever planned for before, because they really did not expect the whole internet to figure out what they are about. John Podesta’s emails, and Hillary Clinton’s emails, are disastrous to the ambitions of these families.” 

Mr. Seaman says that he has “seen this specifically, that the Rothschild banking cartel, will be brought down, their assets will be seized, the public will turn against them to such an extent that they will have to go into hiding. These are very bad people in my opinion, and it is all basically in the open.” 

Mr. Seaman then explains that “the elite families were very smart, to have a member of the Vanderbilt ruling family, Anderson Cooper, Anderson Vanderbilt, it was very smart to have him as an anchor on CNN for years.” 

“It was very smart to have George Stephanopoulos, an anchor on ABC for years, who is completely owned by the Clintons, completely their bitch, great to have a man like that in the mainstream media, ABC is one of the country’s largest television networks, there are people on the Today Show, at NBC, who are equally owned, so the elites were very intelligent to basically own the media, right?” 

Mr. Seaman continues, “Lady Rothschild, the woman who blocked me on Twitter, she is the publisher and owner of The Economist magazine, which has been very anti-Trump and very pro-Hillary. So again, these were smart people to buy up our media, so they could basically silence any claims made about their family, but they do not control the internet.”

“The internet is too big,” he says, “and it is not only internet media that threatens them, internet currency threatens them. The internet is a function jump in technology that they are not prepared for, and it is fucking them right and left, pardon my French.”

Mr. Seaman is referring of course to Bitcoin and to other cryptocurrencies that use blockchain technology. The blockchain makes central banks obsolete and irrelevant

Eliminating the central banks from transactions undermines fiat currencies, fiat currencies issued by governments under a debt paradigm. This incidentally liberates everyone using cryptocurrencies from the debt prison created by those fiat currencies, making both fractional reserve banking and the ornately printed rectangles of paper that fuel the global economy irrelevant.

Mr. Seaman then cites another infamous Rothschild quote, which again, is doubtfully sourced. “I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets,” Mr. Rothschild was alleged to proclaim. “The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.” 

Mr. Seaman then proceeds to read more quotes from the Rothschild clan.  

“If my sons did not want war, there would be none.” 

He states that there are allegations that the Rothschilds profited from funding both sides during WWI and WWII. 

Pausing to drink his covfefe, Mr. Seaman then tells us that David Brock and Lynn de Rothschild are very close. He explains that David Brock is the former boyfriend of James Alefantis

Lady Lynn de Rothschild left, while David Brock speaks from the stairs at a dinner party. This photo is from the Instagram feed of James Alefantis, erstwhile boyfriend of David Brock, of PizzaGate infamy.

Mr. Seaman says that this photo puts Lady Rothschild just one step away from Media Matters and the other propaganda firms that protect the Rothschild, the Soros, and the Clinton families, from criticism. 

Mr. Seaman reminds us that the pedophile epidemic is very real. 

Mr. Seaman says that these families buy politicians. And he points out that Lady Rothschild appears on the personal Instagram of James Alefantis, as depicted above. 

“What these elites do, because they have so much money, and so much time, because they are so delusional, they think that they have been gifted this money by a cosmic being, they are very strange people. They crisscross the globe in their private jets, they buy politicians.” 

Then Mr. Seaman reminds us that Lady Rothschild held a $100,000 per plate dinner for Hillary Clinton.

According to many researchers on the internet, Mr. Seaman says, these ruling families also indulge in occult practices that include pedophilia, talking again about the handkerchief ritual. 

Mr. Seaman then digresses to discuss Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island. He says that the Clinton family is believed to have visited Pedo Island more than 20 times collectively. 

“Do you know how many times a family should visit pedo island? Zero times. That is not normal.”

Mr. Seaman drinks more covfefe. 

A viewer asks, “What else do we know about their bizarre religion?” Mr. Seaman says that “some of these people consider themselves pre-Adamite, they believe that they are a species or a people that came before Adam and Eve.” 

“Weird people,” he continues, “to say the least, anybody who would rape a child on top of a handkerchief is very strange to begin with, but I can assure you that if you take a DNA sample, they are just people.”

In this depiction of pedophile rape of an infant, artist Kim Noble again includes a handkerchief, this one blue, beneath the figure of the victim. 

Mr. Seaman says that these elite banking families made up these myths so that their heritage can be traced back to the gods. 

“They own so much of the $USD and so much of the €Euro, these artificial tokens that by law, we are all forced to use as currency. They own so much of it, and they have concentrated that wealth multigenerational.” 

These are multigenerational families, he says, they have been sharing secrets for generations and solidifying their wealth for generations. He tells us that the Rothschilds concentrated their wealth by limiting inheritance only to male heirs. 

“It has been argued that Hollywood has actually warned us about this cult, this secret society, which people allege is led by the Rothschilds, and a handful of other über-wealthy families, families so wealthy that they intentionally keep themselves off the Fortune and the Forbes lists. That is only for the merchant class.” 

He concludes, “They try to keep things under wraps.”

Then he says, “Some people have argued that the movie The Dark Knight,” continuing, “Chris Nolan is a very smart director, he is kind of like the Stanley Kubrick of our time,” he says that Mr. Nolan puts out popular blockbusters, “but they explore very complex topics.” 

He continues, “Chris Nolan is a very smart director,” and many others have argued, he says, that the character of Ra's al Ghul in the Dark Knight trilogy, “is kind of an analogy for what this cult is, the ideology is very similar, depopulation, it is very dark, this cult in real life is Luciferian, so they believe that depopulation would please the cosmic being that they worship, and they believe things like child rape, child torture, can increase their spiritual power.” 

Mr. Seaman tells us, “These crazy elites really believe that they can be favored by certain cosmic beings, if they make human sacrifices or torture certain innocent young children.” Mr. Seaman says that a friend of his is very wealthy, and he has rubbed shoulders with people who are privy to some of these secret societies.

Mr. Seaman says that the way that his friend described it was, “we live in a techno-Mayan civilization.” Mr. Seaman drinks more covfefe as he digresses and he rants about the paid trolls who are plaguing his feed.

“So, yeah. It is a techno-Mayan civilization,” he says. 

Mr. Seaman continues, “We have smart phones, we have the internet, great cars, and of course we have air travel, and because of those things we assume that we are so modern and advanced, we have the Civil Rights Act of 1964.” 

Mr. Seaman concludes, “These are distractions.” The elites are as bloodthirsty as when the Conquistadors encountered the Mayans and the Aztecs sacrificing humans for spiritual reasons. 

Mr. Seaman explains that the elite class has not really evolved that much, and “some of these sickos really do believe that they gain power by harming the young and the innocent. And that is simple reality, it is simple fact.”

Mr. Seaman then tells us that Dr. Phil had a victim of elite Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) on his show. Aside from what we may think about him, Mr. Seaman says, Dr. Phil is a well regarded and licensed psychologist. Dr. Phil said, on his nationally syndicated TV show, after hearing the horrors that his guest was subjected to, that he believed her

Mr. Seaman says, Dr. Phil is saying that elite SRA is real. And of course it is. There are former FBI and CIA officials on YouTube who talk about this. The media covers it up, but the ruling banking families control the media. 

Mr. Seaman brings up an older photo showing the Rothschilds and the Clinton family. He says that they essentially buy who they want to be president, because they have that much money. 

Hillary Clinton, Sir Evelyn Rothschild, Bill Clinton, Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild. 


Mr. Seaman says that he has walked us through it, this is allegedly what the Rothschilds are about. 

Mr. Seaman says that the best way to break free of them is Bitcoin. They do not understand the internet, social media, nor cryptocurrency. They did not buy an early sizable portion of Bitcoin or Ether so they do not control it, and that really fucks them over long term, he says.

Once Millennials learn how corrupt our political and financial systems are, Mr. Seaman says, citing the cold blooded murder of Seth Rich, they will wake up to what a scam they are, and they will no longer use them. 

We can educate each other, Mr. Seaman says, and if we all flock to Bitcoin, they are royally fucked. He says that the financial elites will crash our fiat currencies at some point, and create new fiat currencies, new rectangles of paper. He reminds us, a good currency is mined, a bad currency mines you.

A Bitcoin, he says, mathematically fucks them the most. A Bitcoin is a central bank in a box, only without the Rothschilds. Mr. Seaman says that if you are terrified of Bitcoin, because you do not understand it, gold and silver do the same thing. 

Mr. Seaman then cites Lynn de Rothschild’s tweet condemning John Podesta.

Lady Lynn de Rothschild appears to be vexed with John Podesta. 

Mr. Seaman reminds us that the Rothschilds fund human atrocities like the Clinton family. 

Mr. Seaman says that he does not advocate mob justice or vigilante justice, but he would like to see members of the Rothschild cabal brought in for trial by any leading government, and be brought to account. 

This is why Rothschild defenders attack anyone in the media who exposes them, he says, or anyone that attacks the Federal Reserve, or the Clinton family. It is very real. 

The whole world is going to know what the Rothschilds are, Mr. Seaman promises. The whole fucking world. 

“Why do they all look so drained and evil?” He asks why cannot the “demented snow crab Lady Rothschild go to Walgreens and buy some moisturizer?”

Mr. Seaman closes with a cartoon of the Rothschild pig feeding piglets.

This screenshot by MEMRI is from an episode of Russian TV's Channel 1 on April 2, 2017.

There are 7 billion of us, Mr. Seaman says, and we are coming for the Rothschild family. 

Mr. Seaman states that millions of us are soon going to demand that our governments bring them to trial. 

Winding down, Mr. Seaman says that the elites are not building a better future for us. They are building a better future for themselves. We do not believe them anymore. We do not believe their media anymore. 

Mr. Seaman says that elite banking families like the Rothschilds live in secrecy, they hate being talked about. When Mr. Seaman first began talking about them, he says, a random troll told him, “there are some families whose privacy needs to be protected.” 

And that is  wrap.
