    Great work, but I think you need to consider all the money and diverted funds that have gone into the USG special access projects weapons projects, which has run into the trillions since the end of WWII. Where did all that money go? What weapons systems were developed? Do those systems bear in the present geopolitical situation for the Deep State? I know it is more or less impossible to get information on special access programs, but to ignore their existence seems wrong.

    Indeed. Peter Dale Scott is not just a researcher, journalist and author. He is living proof that you can live with this stuff for a long time and remain sane. I think he is one of the 25 sane people in North America. (I ain’t on that list, but I am inspired by them.)

    “There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”
    — Senator Daniel K. Inouye at the Iran Contra Hearings (1987)

    D. Orlov and I. Panarin, among others and presaged by no less that Szilard, the inventor of The Bomb, argue that the Soviet “collapse” and the collapse of the American State trace to fundamental similarities and similar internal contradictions. Obviously each “collapse” is unique in history, (or “eimalig in der Geschichte”, as nazi propagandists used to spout). What Dr Peter describes, it might be argued, is the post-collapse simulacrum of America. Collapse, in such a view, has already happened and this scene to-day is what it looks like. This, however, would be an error. A more nuanced view would see to-days scene as a snapshot of a process wherein political collapse comes first and is followed by economic collapse – something unspeakable and yet obvious. Thanks Peter! Nice job.

    C. Wright Mills is the father of deep state investigation !

      And then William Domhoff.

      I’d include Charles Beard as an academic pioneer investigator of America’ power elite, and whose critical historiography complements Mills’ sociology.

    Here is an account of the MI6/CIA organized coup to overthrow the
    democratically elected Iranian PM Mohammed Mossadegh posted on line at
    Lobster, a UK based “journal of parapolitics”.

    A ‘great venture’: overthrowing the government of Iran
    by Mark Curtis

    From Lobster 30

    is a slightly abridged version of part of chapter four of Mark Curtis’s
    book The Ambiguities of Power: British Foreign Policy since 1945 (Zed
    Press, 1995).

    In August 1953 a coup overthrew Iran’s nationalist
    government of Mohammed Musaddiq and installed the Shah in power. The
    Shah subsequently used widespread repression and torture in a
    dictatorship that lasted until the 1979 Islamic revolution. The 1953
    coup is conventionally regarded primarily as a CIA operation, yet the
    planning record reveals not only that Britain was the prime mover in the
    initial project to overthrow the government but also that British
    resources contributed significantly to the eventual success of the
    operation. Two
    first-hand accounts of the Anglo-American sponsorship
    of the coup – by the MI6 and CIA officers primarily responsible for it –
    are useful in reconstructing events. (1) Many of the secret planning
    documents that reveal the British role have been removed from public
    access and some of them remain closed until the next century – for
    reasons of ‘national security’. Nevertheless, a fairly clear picture
    still emerges. Churchill later told the CIA officer responsible for the
    operation that he ‘would have loved nothing better than to have served
    under your command in this great venture’.

    You want to read some great quotes. Here is my suggestion

    Daniel Estulin has been studying the bildeberg group for over 20 years. He also spent two years in the library at Venice, Italy looking over birth/death and marriage records for the past 1,000 years. He states that there are families that have been in power since the Roman times, much likely before. But certainly the powers during the Venetian Black Nobility are around today and more powerful than ever. He was shown a bank statement for the Krupp family (arms merchants since the late 1500s) for 112 Trillion usd. He says the families at the very top have a combined net worth of quadrillions of dollars. Henry Kissinger, G HW Bush, etc, all work for these powers.
