US Deep State (update)

Posted: February 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

In January, 1961, just days before he handed over the US presidency to John F. Kennedy, outgoing Republican president Dwight Eisenhower delivered one of the most sincere and concerning speeches of any departing American leader.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognise the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

“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 …”

This second level of government, practically managed by the weapon and oil lobby in Washington, is referred by the insiders as Deep State.

The Deep State has only grown from the 1960s and the source of numerous conspiracy theories).

This second level of Government (or being less conspiratorial, this powerful lobby) has always their powerful advisers close to the President (in this case Mattis (weapons)  Priebus (CIA), Tillerson (oil), Mnuchin (Wall Street), Cohn (Wall Street)) gives a powerful continuation of powers no matter if Obama, Clinton or Trump is the president.

So, in a sense, what happens with Trump would have happened (under different media image) with Clinton.

And the system needs a war and now it is aiming at Iran (China was always a diversion, as a war with China can inflict too much damage) or some other targets

As you would have noticed, specially in foreign policy, is starting to adapt to the instructions.

President Trump can always rebel and go is own way, even if his Chief White House Strategist Bannon said in an interview with Vanity Fair “(Trump is a)blunt instrument for us … I don’t know whether he really gets it or not”.

Logically President Trump, unpredictable as it is, could rebel. But he would need to pay attention to history.

October 2, 1963 President Kennedy signed an order (for precision, as it is controversial, NSAM, 11 October 63, 263 section 1-B (1-3) to withdraw 1,000 military advisers from South Vietman (out of 17,000) by December 1963.

22 November 1963 JFK got killed. Strange coincidence.

UPDATE: sorry my article was so precise that I could not point out something.

President Trump has a very good survival instinct and obeys his masters.

Iran : Yemen has been designated as a “terror area” and, with Syria, Trump agrees in the creation of safe zones (precursor to intervention). He even discussed safe zones in Syria.

Russia: Trump says that Crimea has to be given back

General Flynn, national security adviser, probably will be substituted by Vice Admiral Harward, ex Lockheed Martin (F35 Stealth jet)  CEO in UAE.

The US Deep State needs enemy and wars to justify the spending (USD514 billion in 2014)
