As this pandemic wears on, it is becoming evident to a growing number of citizens that the measures being levied upon us and our children by our elected officials and school boards are getting ever further divorced from the science, statistics and plain common sense about what is best for our health. The only logical explanation left for people who are doing further research is that our elected leaders and school board officials are simply following what appears to be an agenda of control that is being thrust upon them from above.
While protests and rallies against these measures have been ongoing in Canada and around the world, a growing number of people here in Ontario have concluded that these activities have done little to elicit a response from our highly insulated elected officials. An Ontario group by the name of Stand4Thee has spearheaded an effort to hold our elected leaders directly accountable, and rather than continuing to wait for the slow and grinding wheels of our current court system to deliver some measure of justice, Stand4Thee has decided to educate themselves and others on the Common Law, and implement immediate Common Law actions commensurate with the urgency of the situation, especially in regards to the magnitude of damage being inflicted on our children.
The Arrest of Bonnie Crombie
On the morning of March 20th, 2021, over 200 ordinary citizens came together in Celebration Square in Mississauga to participate in a Common Law court proceeding to process a summons that was sent to Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie a day earlier by 3 members of Stand4Thee:
under common law and natural justice
To bonnie crombie the [woman] acting as the mayor of the Service Corporation of MISSISSAUGA
Whereas you have been accused before the men and women and parents of MISSISSAUGA in that you,
Have committed an ongoing assault and abuse on the children of the service corporation of the REGION OF PEEL and the service corporation of the CITY OF MISSISSAUGA
You are to appear at Mississauga Celebration Square on 20th day of March 2021 at 10:10am.
Issued at the service corporation of MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO
this 19th day of March, 2021
daniel warren oke, rebecca sheppard, cullen mcdonald
If you do not appear you will be tried in absentia by a jury of twelve of your peers
If you are found guilty and a fine is levied against you it will be handed to the International Tribunal, the International Criminal Court, the International Common Law Court, Interpol and the United States Alliance.
Now there are some particularities in this summons, including names being in lower case and in red, to distinguish them from upper case names that are used in a different legal jurisdiction that I have heard called Maritime Law, Admiralty Law, or Law Merchant. I won’t comment on the nature of this law until I can do more research, except to say that Common Law appears to have a higher jurisdiction, and this is what has been kept a secret from us in order to maintain control over us.
I am quite familiar with Natural Law, which is not a law that has been made by any human, but rather governs the natural and self-evident order of the physical universe we reside in, within which we are all rightly equal, free and sovereign as individuals. To my understanding, Common Law has been an attempt by certain luminaries throughout history to codify Natural Law formally and specifically into the way we govern ourselves and interact with each other, a way to maintain a just order in society without infringing on individual freedom.
In face of pandemic measures, many more citizens have become interested in how to achieve justice for themselves and their fellow citizens, and consequently have become interested in understanding how the law works. The Common Law proceedings at Celebration Square in Mississauga actually served as an opportunity for citizens to learn about their power and their rights first-hand. And this was surely by design, as the moderators generously explained the purpose of each step along the way.
The Common Law Proceedings
Now as it turns out, Mayor Bonnie Crombie did not show up. This was not unexpected, and as promised in the summons, the proceedings went on without her.
After the hearing was called to order, parents who had complaints against Mayor Bonnie Crombie spoke a declaration of arrest out loud as a group, holding Bonnie Crombie responsible for the following crimes based on her support for and enforcement of mask mandates for children in school in Mississauga:
Administering a noxious substance to a minor, in contravention of Section 245(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada
Committing torture, in contravention of Section 269.1(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada
Committing bodily harm, in contravention of Section 221 of the Criminal Code of Canada
Reckless endangerment and child abandonment, in contravention of Section 218 of the Criminal Code of Canada
Criminal negligence, in contravention of Section 219 of the Criminal Code of Canada
Breach of trust by a public officer, in contravention of Section 122 of the Criminal Code of Canada
There is a binder of evidence online which was referred to as substantiation of the claims. Following addition testimony from parents who told the jury their personal stories, the jury of 12 peers convened. After deliberations, they found Mayor Bonnie Crombie guilty as charged, and in addition demanded an immediate injunction against all pandemic measures that are impacting the health and freedom of the children of Mississauga.
Is This Purely Symbolic?
The question on many people’s minds is, will the convening of this court have any impact in the ‘real’ world? Does Common Law have any standing in our society, or are those in authority going to be able to continue what they are doing with impunity? I don’t have an answer for you right now, but after having participated in this event, I felt empowered, inspired, and unified with all the other participants. I felt a sense of ‘community’ that I had never felt before, insofar as a group of concerned citizens were gathering together with the hope and belief that they had the ability to make right something that was obviously wrong in our society.
There was clearly an ‘energetic’ component to this gathering that was very positive and refreshing. Everyone participated in a dignified, focused manner, unified in purpose, grounded in truth and love. So no matter what each person’s belief is around the significance of the ‘energetic’ realm in human affairs, most participants were left with the feeling that this is the way legal matters important to citizens should be conducted in our society, and that the way our current system works is the opposite of this. I believe that the more energy people begin to devote to the Common Law system, and the less they spend within the old system, the more that real-world change to create a more harmonious world will naturally occur, making the proceedings in Celebration Square on March 20th far from a symbolic gesture, but rather a catalyst for a shift in consciousness that will return power to the people.
We are living through a time that is shaking us down to our foundations. This ‘Pandemic’ has led to actions being taken by our governments that seem to completely disregard the rights of citizens and the rule of law. And there is mounting evidence that the severe measures being employed have not had any positive impact on our collective health and safety, and in fact are only serving an agenda to strengthen the grip of control enjoyed by the ruling class.
I don’t begrudge people who still believe that all we have to do to return to some form of normalcy is continue obeying protocols, but support for that idea is dwindling, as more people start to wonder if compliance is really the answer or if it is actually the problem itself. Questions surrounding these measures are being asked everywhere we turn: Why are small businesses being shut down, while multinational corporations that pose just as much ‘risk’ are able to open? Why are children being forced to wear masks and distance within schools when the science and statistics indicate that such measures are unnecessary and even harmful? Why are our governments trying to convince us that the Covid vaccine will solve the problem, while telling us that we will still have to wear masks after receiving it?
A Spiritual Battle
It is healthy to question things that don’t make sense to us, and we deserve answers. We have every right to defy commands we feel are unjustified–especially when our government oversteps and ignores the very laws it is supposed to uphold. And rather than heeding the growing discontent, and giving even the faintest impression that they are trying to ‘serve the public,’ the government is pushing back on our defiance like never before.
Let there be no doubt: we are in the midst of a spiritual battle.
But have courage. I believe that everything that is happening around us, as nefarious as it may be at some level, is being guided by a higher intelligence. And that higher intelligence has brought forth a situation that gives us an opportunity to begin to take charge of what is happening on the planet.
At this moment in history humanity is emerging from a state of adolescence and moving into adulthood, where we are starting to take responsibility, individually and collectively, for the condition the world is in. It is when a critical mass of people adopt this mindset that we will be able to turn this ship around, and get out from under the thumb of the ‘father figure’ of our adolescence, the current self-serving ruling class.
Confronting Our Fear
Indeed, one of the major stumbling blocks many of us face in standing up against what is going on is overcoming our fear of authority. Most of us first experienced a fear of authority at the hands of our parents, and as Edward Snowden explains in the short clip below, the ruling class has created a system that continues to stoke this fear and force our compliance from the time we enter school until we die.
As individuals, it is certainly worthwhile to ask ourselves if any trust we still have in our authority figures is justified, or if our compliance is just fear-based programming. Do we feel afraid to stand out or speak out, are we worried that we will be shamed by family, shunned by friends, unable to fit in at work or school? To truly act as free individuals we need to become still and grounded when we ask these questions, so that we can hear the quiet but reassuring voice of our higher self, reminding us of who we really want to be and what we want to do. This is the only authority you really need to follow.
Now certainly I don’t presume to tell anyone what ‘right action’ is for them. In fact it is no longer a time for you to blindly follow anyone, as I illustrated in my documentary ‘The Leaderless Movement.’ So we shouldn’t be guilted or shamed into defiance any more than we should be guilted or shamed into compliance. It’s time for each of us to find our center. From there, you do whatever feels right to you. That might very well mean doing nothing at the moment. But if you happen to notice, when you get into a state of stillness, that your inner voice has been gently coaxing you to stand up for your principles and be active in the world, then you owe it to yourself (and the rest of humanity, I might add) to overcome whatever fear you might have and follow through.
What is Real-World Activism?
When we think of real-world activism the first thing that often comes to mind is our right to assemble and protest. Some may dismiss this out of hand because it evokes unpleasant images of fighting and violence. But that is not an inherent quality of standing up for our personal rights and freedoms. The vast majority of gatherings and demonstrations in Canada and around the world regarding pandemic measures have been peaceful, and that’s the only way they are going to be effective. Certainly the time for pitchforks and streetside guillotines has long passed us by. If we decide that our only objective is to tear down the ruling class and subject them to bloody retribution then we are just perpetuating the division that the ruling class has used this whole time to keep their small elite group running the show.
Real-world activism does not actually require you to stand against anything. Of course many of us are angry about what we see going on in the world and we don’t like it. And that is a healthy thing. Our anger awakens us out of complacency and into action. But once we are activated, it’s important to move on to the next emotional stage, which is a firm resolve to stand for something, like the basic principles of personal freedom and human dignity that we all share. This opens us up to our connection with each other and fuels our desire to improve not only our own lives but those of our fellow human beings as well. This eventually leads us to looking at the way the entire planet is being governed and wondering why we are continuing to give our consent to it.
And of course real-world activism is not limited to participating in demonstrations and protests. It could simply be the way we conduct ourselves in our daily lives when we deal with those in some position of authority. Usually it is something that affects us personally that spark us to action. In my case, I remember the day clearly, when I read that my grade 1 son would be required to wear a mask in school. That is the day I jumped out of my chair and put the time and effort into researching the matter and then contacting those involved. This eventually led to a string of frustrating and uncomfortable conversations with people of authority from a principal to a director of education, documented in my article ‘How I Obtained a Conscientious Exemption From Mask-wearing at School for my Child.’ Early on, I had a sense that the whole exercise was not only done for my son, as I had decided after losing trust in the system that I was not willing put him through a single day at school; I also felt I wanted to learn how to stand up for my rights so that I could help others who were in the same situation.
Effective activism always has a spiritual component. It requires us to look at ourselves in the mirror and do the inner work that builds self-responsibility and changes the way we show up in the world. It requires us to look at the world with more discernment and a devotion to truth. We have long been divided by deception, but the singularity of truth unites us, and the sharing of truth empowers us and sets us free.
What is unprecedented about the events that we are living through right now is that we are all personally affected one way or another. Nobody has been left untouched, and that makes it more difficult for people to continue sitting this one out. We are all being called to some form of engagement, and it’s likely that things in the world will keep getting worse until enough of us are involved. And this is why I believe that higher intelligence is orchestrating this. For when we reach a critical mass and the behemoth that I call the ruling class finally falls, we will have learned how to take responsibility for the condition of the world, we will be more educated in the deceptive ways of power, and we will have begun to connect to each other and unite at a deep level. This will put us in a position where we will already have the tools to start creating a world that serves us all.

Current evidence indicates that heightened risk for mortality from a lack of social relationships is greater than that from obesity.
Loneliness can reliably be linked to a significant increase in the risk of early mortality, according to a study at Brigham Young University. Head author, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, notes that “substantial evidence now indicates that individuals lacking social connections (both objective and subjective social isolation) are at risk for premature mortality.”
Holt-Lunstad believes the risks associated with loneliness are already greater than such established dangers as obesity:
Several decades ago scientists who observed widespread dietary and behavior changes raised warnings about obesity and related health problems. The present obesity epidemic had been predicted. Obesity now receives constant coverage in the media and in public health policy. The current status of research on the risks of loneliness and social isolation is similar to that of research on obesity 3 decades ago… Current evidence indicates that heightened risk for mortality from a lack of social relationships is greater than that from obesity.
Furthermore, she warns that “researchers have predicted that loneliness will reach epidemic proportions by 2030 unless action is taken.”
Why Are We So Isolated From Each Other?
From the long view, it can be said that Western civilization as a whole has fostered a gradual disintegration of our physical and social ties. With an emphasis on individual goals and an almost fanatical regard for personal achievement, the traditional institutions of family and community and their capacity to provide their members with a sense of belonging and shared purpose have become significantly fragmented.
The family unit has gone from large generations-linked mutual support systems to small and immediate units, sometimes involving single parents whose necessities make it very difficult to create a stable home environment for their children. Add to that the fact that more and more people are not even building families, and our society has more people living alone than at any other time in history. This includes the elderly, who are less likely to find a ‘fit’ living within their children’s families than ever before.
The decline of the ‘community’ is perhaps as significant as the disintegration of the family unit. In Western-style communities, people work as a collection of individual units interacting by specific functions rather than as an interrelated whole with a significant shared identity. Naturally, attempts are made today to join or build ‘communities’ all the time, but like the Meetup model, they are founded on the gathering of select people with similar interests and purposes, rather than a shared embrace of all people within a certain geographical area.
The Rise of Social Media
I believe the rise in prominence of social media has in part been fuelled by the sense of alienation we have long felt within our modern society. I don’t believe social media is the root cause of our loneliness, as some speculate, but rather a symptom of this much longer-standing social problem. Connecting via chats and web pages is just something that we have gotten into the habit of reaching for since it is so immediately accessible. But like any quick fix, it does not end up fulfilling our deeper needs, either individually or as a society.
If we see that our society has been slowly disintegrating over hundreds of years, then it becomes incumbent upon us as a society (if we can still even identify ourselves with our ‘society’) to take measures to remedy this situation. What those measures might be, though, given how things seem to be trending, is a matter of great conjecture.
On Being Alone
One approach is to first acknowledge that Western society’s emphasis on the individual is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I believe that the development of personal integrity, creativity, and autonomy is a critical step in the evolution of human consciousness. Learning how to be alone with oneself is a part of that process. In his work entitled Pensées, French philosopher Blaise Pascal observed that “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”
As evidenced by Eastern gurus and mystics, one can be perfectly content in isolation. This can be greatly facilitated by the practice of meditation and other such methods that give us a direct perception of our energetic connectedness not only with other people, but with all things. In this higher state, the damaging emotional impact of loneliness and social isolation are not experienced.
Our Next Step
Still, the life of the yogi remains for the few. The rest of us, it seems, have come to this planet to interact, share, and love. And we have not incarnated into this dense physical world to get better at virtual relationships. At this stage, we have perhaps gotten a bit too accustomed to social isolation for our own good.
Holt-Lunstad notes that “although living alone can offer conveniences and advantages for an individual, this meta-analysis indicates that physical health is not among them.” She also cites another study that “has demonstrated higher survival rates for those who are more socially connected.” And then there is the seminal 75-Year Harvard University study, where “it was universally clear that without loving and supportive relationships, men in the study were not happy.” The message is becoming clear: we need to come together.
We are perhaps at a larger turning point in our development than most of us realize. It seems that we have reached the extreme edge of the exploration of individualism, and we are readying to move into greater balance with a collective identity. This is not a return to traditional ways, but rather a synthesis of our growth as individuals with the shared experience we are now hungering for. This synthesis signifies the next stage of our evolution.
“For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.”–1 Timothy 6:10
While it is still not commonly held in mainstream discourse that humanity could survive and even thrive without some form of monetary exchange, more and more people that are starting to trace their general discontent about contemporary society to its source are finding money and profit motive at the root of it.
Perhaps the first of the knee-jerk reactions some people might have to the idea of shifting into a money-free system is the sinking feeling of watching their hard-earned wealth evaporate into nothingness, which they might equate with abject poverty. We are so programmed to equate money with abundance that we don’t understand what abundance truly is.
At the heart of it our ‘net’ abundance is shared, and is grounded in the resources available in nature on the planet. The aggregate of these natural resources not only represents our potential abundance but our very survival. A money system grants ownership to many of these resources, and makes it exponentially easier for those with abundance to get more abundance at the expense of the vast majority of people. A money system is, in some ways, antithetical to the proper management and distribution of these resources. Without money, each individual would naturally be entitled to their share of all the resources in the world, and that would never change. But how would such a system work?
Jacque Fresco, founder of the Venus Project, believes that the world has reached a level of technology that will allow us to build fully self-sustaining communities all over the world which, when optimally designed, will provide not only an unimaginably high level of abundance for all its residents, but a far greater sense of shared purpose within a community. This vision is grounded in the principles of a Resource-Based Economy:
In a Resource Based Economy all goods and services are available to all people without the need for means of exchange such as money, credits, barter or any other means. For this to be achieved all resources must be declared as the common heritage of all Earth’s inhabitants. Equipped with the latest scientific and technological marvels mankind could reach extremely high productivity levels and create abundance of resources.–Venus Project website
Without profit motive, individuals within the community will naturally turn their energy towards the efficient maintenance of the infrastructure and problem-solving and innovation for the collective, as the happiness and well-being of the community is naturally equated with one’s own happiness and well-being.
In the video below is a brief introduction to Fresco’s inspiring vision of our potential future. More information. including where the Venus Project is at on their timeline, is available on their website.
No Need For Trade
Since money is nothing more than a medium of exchange, it is only in removing the convention of exchange or ‘trade’ itself that then renders money obsolete. That’s why a Resource-Based Economy proposes that ‘all resources must be declared as the common heritage of all Earth’s inhabitants.’
In his TedX talk, Colin Turner really questions the idea that ‘trade’ is the only organizational model for life on the planet, and in fact outlines the ways in which trade is actually antithetical to human abundance and well-being:
We all more or less accept trade as being the de facto way of operating our society, so much so that we even see it as some kind of universal law. But it might surprise you to know actually that trade has only existed in relatively recent years, that in 90% of our modern human history we didn’t actually trade at all, there still are no archaeological traces of trade. In these early tribal, agrarian communities what actually happened was there was an implied understanding that everyone in the tribe looked after each other. And this was how the tribes operated for perhaps the vast majority of our early human history.
So we see trade now as a very important way of doing business, and you have to say that trade works, I get what I want and you get what you want and we all go home happy. But when you actually scratch the surface a little bit more about how trade actually pans out in the real world, it’s not such a nice story. It seems to be a better theory than actually works out in practice.
For example, the most obvious case is, about 3 billion people in the world today live on $2.50 or less a day–many of them much, much less than that. Obviously they are wracked with starvation or dying of curable diseases, so, I mean, you have to ask yourself, is trade really working for them, for those people? Clearly, it isn’t.
Colin Turner is the founder of The Free World Charter, which currently has 58,611 signatories among people from 215 different countries (and would welcome yours, if you are so inclined). The charter constitutes a set of principles that really formalizes the notion that all human individuals are entitled to maintain an equal share of the Earth’s resources, but it also outlines the natural responsibilities and practices that each individual would assume in order to live optimally and harmoniously together in a money-free community and world. Here are the ten principles:
The highest concern of humanity is the combined common good of all living species and biosphere.
Life is precious in all its forms, and free to flourish in the combined common good.
Earth’s natural resources are the birthright of all its inhabitants, and free to share in the combined common good.
Every human being is an equal part of a worldwide community of humans, and a free citizen of Earth.
Our community is founded on the spirit of cooperation and an understanding of nature, provided through basic education.
Our community provides for all its members the necessities of a healthy, fulfilling and sustainable life, freely and without obligation.
Our community respects the limits of nature and its resources, ensuring minimal consumption and waste.
Our community derives its solutions and advances progress primarily through the application of logic and best available knowledge.
Our community acknowledges its duty of care and compassion for members who are unable to contribute.
Our community acknowledges its responsibility to maintain a diverse and sustainable biosphere for all future life to enjoy
These are certainly not the final words on which principles should truly define a future society and world free of money, but in reading them one can clearly grasp the overall essence of the kind of mindset we will need to develop and implement in our lives if we are to shift into this new paradigm.
Walking Away From A Money Economy
The shift we are looking for here is grounded in a conscious move by the individuals of this planet away from a model of competition and towards a model of cooperation. We are all quite familiar with both, as we surely have an ample amount of experience in both ways of relating to the people around us. If you could choose right now, which kind of model would you want as the basis for the entire planet?
Some might argue that the competitive/trade/money paradigm has been instrumental in getting us to make progress, especially technologically, which we may not have achieved by remaining with the cooperative tribal model. There may be some truth in this. But does it not seem that, at this time in history, most of us have had it with the debt, scarcity, and inequality that is a hallmark of the money model? Are we not hungering for more love, cooperation and shared abundance imbued in the very organizational structures we create for ourselves to live?
Understand that making this change is not as simple as going to the United Nations or other authoritative world body, as Jacque Fresco has already done. Presenting a compelling vision of a future without money to the benefit of all of humanity does not automatically mean that the world authority will implement it right away. The powers behind world authority like the UN are actually made up of those who have the most money. What we see going on in the public arena are essentially the machinations of the puppets they control.
This is nothing new. An overall system that maintains power by the few has been in place ever since money and exchange were introduced. While in the past this wealth was protected over generations and generations by certain families who were the visible ‘royalty,’ ‘noblemen’ and ‘aristocracy’ of the day, today’s world only differs in the sense that these powers are more hidden from sight, while countries maintain the illusion of having some form of ‘democracy.’
The point is that we will never be able to elicit the help of our authority if we want to abandon our current money economy. Those in authority, who at the very top own a vast percentage of the world’s resources, certainly believe they would have the most to lose if we moved to a model founded on equally-shared abundance. What we actually need to do is elicit the help of each other, energizing important movements and fostering an awakening as to how powerful we actually are as a collective. When a critical mass of us begin marching in step to a new way of life, the current authority will have no power to stop us.
A money-free society and world can certainly work from the standpoint of creating abundance for everyone on the planet. What is needed is a new awareness founded on some of the natural principles discussed here. The more that individuals of the planet slowly move away from competitive money-centered practices and spend their time and energy cultivating cooperation, the more quickly we will be able to collectively walk away from a system that no longer serves us.
In the previous article, I put out the notion that much of the unending criticism and disparagement towards Donald Trump in the mainstream media and relentless effort to have him removed from power by the Democratic party is best explained, in my mind, as being driven by a powerful centralized force known as the Deep State who are under threat of having their serious crimes of the past uncovered.
As we examine the evidence, it is important to understand Deep State compartmentalization and the nature of its influence in the various institutions it has sought to control, which include the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government, the military, the intelligence agencies and others, with particular emphasis on mainstream media and more recently social media. The installation of individuals who have been born into this criminal ‘family,’ let’s call it, are totally devoted to the cause of world domination through their brand of globalism. But these installations are only the base of Deep State operations. The majority of individuals whose actions support the Deep State agenda do not see the big picture or their role in it. They are those whose influence has been bought, or is being controlled as a result of blackmailing, or have simply been convinced by their higher-ups that they are doing the right thing.
A company like CNN, for example, might have ‘family’ members in key positions (i.e. Ted Turner, Jeff Zucker and some others in top management) who are currently pushing an anti-Trump agenda, and many of the rest of the company are chosen based on roughly being aligned with a liberal agenda (after all, birds of a feather do stick together). The use of various overt and covert methods allows the entire organization to present somewhat of a unified front in step with the Deep State agenda. For some, the threat of losing their job is enough to keep them in line, even though privately they might not fully believe in what they are doing. Others who show some talent and a strong desire for power and influence may be brought deeper into the inner circle based on money or getting ‘honey-trapped’ into compromising positions through which they can be controlled.
My article ‘CNN’s Political Bias Exposed By Whistleblower’s Hidden Camera Footage‘ and the hidden camera footage of former CNN employee Cary Poarch is an important lens into how the anti-Trump bias was carried out and maintained throughout the organization. We see that privately amongst employees, even though few were fans of Trump, that there is a lot of pushback and incredulity at Jeff Zucker’s insistence that the Trump impeachment was the only newsworthy event over the course of several months, and should be front and center daily for reporters and broadcasters. But by and large, because of the hierarchical structure that is so essential for control, people have little choice but to go along with the agenda, not realizing that they are actually the footsoldiers of a much larger and more comprehensive plan than they could ever imagine.
To say that this power structure has been slowly and carefully built up over time within all influential institutions would be an understatement; and attention has been paid to ensure that those at lower levels have no access at all to higher and more incriminating information. Although the top brass of the Deep State pyramid do have an extremely high level of occult knowledge regarding how to control and rule, they do not have a ‘lock’ on everything and everybody in the world. Their goal has always been total domination but they’ve never quite achieved it, and furthermore that goal is fading quickly, as elaborated upon in articles more esoteric in nature here and here. Because the Deep State agenda fundamentally based in deception they have to be constantly working to suppress the truth, which has an annoying habit of shining through illusory constructions.
The Michael Flynn Case
It is with this understanding that we need to look at the evidence being declassified in the Michael Flynn case, where we see the involvement of a host of players, including FBI director James Comey, Assistant Director Andrew McCabe, agents Peter Strzok, Bill Priestap, Lisa Page, and other top players from the Department of Justice, the other intelligence agencies, and Barack Obama himself. These players don’t get together regularly in a ‘Deep State’ meeting to discuss a ‘Deep State’ agenda. Rather, these players go about their jobs, for the most part legally, until such time as they are needed to do something. The instructions from their superior, for the most part, have at least an appearance of being legitimate. Orders given to subordinates are couched in an established narrative that suggests the legality or at least the ‘necessity for the greater good’ of following the orders.
Since the Deep State knows that their actions should generally have a believable supporting narrative and an arguably ‘legal’ predicate, you can understand how uncovering the criminality is somewhat of a painstaking, detailed process. One piece of evidence may be ambivalent, which is why it is important to piece together all the small signs of impropriety in order to establish a pattern of intentional deception. In my opinion, the indiscretions that were committed in the Michael Flynn case indicate to me that there was quite a bit of desperation to derail Michael Flynn’s role in the Trump administration, and a lot of people had a hand in trying to make this happen.
Fact: A clear predicate to investigate Flynn was never established
The FBI opened a counterintelligence probe of Flynn in August 2016, supposedly on the grounds that he might be a clandestine Russian agent. That is what they have said, but they have never cited any evidence that would materially substantiate their alleged suspicions. Flynn is a retired three-star Army general and decorated combat commander, who had by then written a book that identified Russia as a committed global adversary of the United States. Pure suspicion, the product of one’s mind, is not a sufficient predicate to open an investigation on any U.S. citizen, let alone an Army general that has served the country for over 30 years.
Now remember that Flynn was unceremoniously dumped by Barack Obama two years earlier as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. It seems more reasonable to me that they were investigating Flynn on this pretext in order to keep a close eye on him, trying to find something on him that they could use on him later in case they needed to. So little incriminating evidence was found that could be used against Flynn that the FBI’s then-director, James Comey, authorized closing the investigation dubbed “Crossfire Razor” in December 2016, and the paperwork to do so was completed on Jan. 4, 2017.
Fact: FBI Agent Peter Strzok overruled and kept the Flynn Investigation open
Court documents released on April 30th, 2020 revealed that FBI agent Peter Strzok sent the following text message to the investigating agent on that same day, Jan. 4, 2017:
“Hey if you haven’t closed RAZOR, don’t do so yet. Pls keep it open for now.”
The internal FBI documents detailed a pattern showing multiple efforts to uncover criminal activity by Flynn, as outlined in this Washington Times article:
FBI officials reached out to another agency, likely the CIA, to conduct a similar search of its records for possible ties between Flynn and Russia. Just like the FBI, that agency found “no derogatory information” on Flynn.
The FBI also used at least one confidential human source to monitor Flynn during the investigation. But leads offered by the informant also failed to turn up criminal activity, the memo said.
Based on the lack of evidence, the FBI closed the investigation but noted it would consider reopening it if new information was uncovered.
Yet, Mr. Strzok, the case supervisor, pushed to keep it open, according to the memo. In another text to an unknown person, he noted that the FBI’s leadership was involved and they still “need to decide what to do with him [with respect to] the [Redacted].”
In my opinion, this alone should demonstrate that there was a rather urgent ulterior motive to find something incriminating on Flynn, even if they had to invent it.
When Strzok kept Crossfire Razor open on January 4th, 2017, Flynn was an official in the Trump transition who was designated to become the president’s national security adviser. Strzok also knew that Flynn had had communications in December with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, which has been cited as a reason to be suspicious of Flynn. However the government was already monitoring Kislyak, so they knew what had been said in those conversations and recordings showed that Flynn did nothing inappropriate. There was no grounds to reopen or continue the counterintelligence investigation or to begin a criminal investigation.
This other notion that the DOJ was looking to charge Flynn criminally with violating the Logan Act, a moribund, unconstitutional prohibition against freelance diplomacy, seems rather absurd. In the DOJ’s 150-year history, the Logan Act has never been charged. No one has ever been convicted for violating it; there has been no case since 1852.
Fact: James Comey Knowingly Broke Protocols To Interview Flynn
So we know that by early January of 2016 Comey had already considered the Flynn matter closed. What could have transpired between January 4th, the day Strzok lobbied to keep the Flynn case open, and January 24th, when James Comey deciding to bypass all proper protocols and send FBI agents into the White House to interview Michael Flynn? And not just any FBI agents, by the way. The lead interviewer was none other than Peter Strzok.
If you’re like me, you look at this and think that it was Peter Strzok who asked James Comey to send him in to interview General Flynn. Or, to take it a step further, some higher authority told James Comey that Strzok was going in to interview General Flynn, and furthermore got Comey to agree to bypass the normal channels, avoid telling Flynn that he was the subject of an investigation, and make Flynn feel that he didn’t need his lawyer present.
If we watch the following clip of James Comey from a December 2018 interview talking about the way he sent the agents to the White House, a few things about it make more sense under the circumstances suggested here.
Now let’s first acknowledge that Comey is pretty good at calmly and coolly creating a narrative that holds together pretty well. Yet, no amount of coolness or swagger can help answer the question: why indeed would he risk his reputation and knowingly breach protocol which would undoubtedly bring the righteous scorn of the incoming administration? Under the circumstances, there was no apparent urgency to be interviewing Flynn, especially since Comey himself had previously considered the matter closed, and no new and compelling evidence had arisen since then.
The only thing that makes sense is that Comey was told to do this post-haste from a higher authority, and Comey’s role would be to put out whatever fires needed to be put out as a consequence. Under these conditions, the interesting freudian slip that Comey makes in the interview about sending the agents into the White House the way he did becomes very telling:
“Something we, I probably wouldn’t have done or gotten away with in a more organized investigation, (pause) a more organized administration.”
In fact, the way things are done here indeed suggest that the investigation was disorganized and, frankly, desperate. It almost seems as though Peter Strzok took things into his own hands and forced this interview before he felt it was too late.
But how could Strzok, Comey’s subordinate, have the power to do this?
This is where it gets interesting. There is compelling evidence here that Peter Strzok has secretly been working for the CIA, and may continue to be in their employ to this day:
Peter Strzok worked 24 years for the CIA. His job title was Chief of their Counterespionage Group. The FBI never had such a unit. A joint CIA/FBI position was created by Congress in 1996. Strzok was “a senior FBI official” by being the CIA’s Chief of Counterespionage.
Those who have researched into the Deep State generally agree that, unlike the other institutions it has sought to influence, the Deep State is essentially run through the CIA. That gives the sequence of events here has a logical through-line. You can read more about the CIA’s role in the Deep State here.
Now if Peter Strzok is getting his marching orders from the CIA, it would be likely that then-CIA Director John Brennan ordered Strzok to get something on Flynn, as a matter of great urgency. Brennan would know full well what Michael Flynn would find out and the information that he would have access to if he became the National Security advisor. We will go more deeply into this later.
Fact: The FBI then sought to trap Flynn in a lie
The recent release on April 29th, 2020 of a handwritten note likely written by former FBI head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap goes a long way to revealing why Strzok kept the case open. It has Priestap asking whether the goal of interviewing Flynn was “truth/admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
Preventing him, with prejudice, from becoming the National Security advisor, and keeping him tied up endlessly in defending himself in court, if not getting jail time, appears to have been the focused goal. By and large, they succeeded in their mission. Flynn admitted to lying to the FBI. He resigned from his position at the White House on February 17th.
Then he was forced to cooperate with the Mueller investigation, where he had to meet with the DOJ lawyers of the Mueller team a total of 19 times. 19 times! For what? That seems a little excessive, doesn’t it? Especially if we examine the actual content of the ‘lies,’ according to the charging documents:
“On or about Dec. 29, 2016, FLYNN did not ask the Government of Russia’s Ambassador to the United States…to refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the United States had imposed against Russia that same day; and FLYNN did not recall the Russian Ambassador subsequently telling him that Russia had chosen to moderate its response to those sanctions as a result of his request.”
“On or about Dec. 22, 2016, FLYNN did not ask the Russian Ambassador to delay the vote on or defeat a pending United Nations Security Council resolution; and that the Russia Ambassador subsequently never described to FLYNN Russia’s response to his request.”
What have these ‘lies’ got to do with Flynn being suspected of being an agent of Russia? What do they have to do with Russian collusion in the 2016 election? Absolutely nothing. Why would the Mueller investigation have to interview Flynn 19 times? Think logically.
Furthermore, an examination of the interview with Peter Strzok shows that Flynn’s statements were equivocal. That creates significant questions about whether inaccuracies in his description of the Kislyak discussions were honest failures of recollection, not lies. The interview happened about a month after the Kislyak communications. In the interim, Flynn had hundreds of conversations with foreign counterparts. It would have been a challenge for anyone to remember the words of a conversation under those circumstances; and, in their legerdemain, the FBI strategically refused to refresh Flynn’s recollection by playing recordings or showing a transcript.
Strzok went out of his way to deceive Flynn about the purpose of the interview, at which he hoped to trip him up. It is rote for FBI “302” reports — used to summarize witness interviews — to start by recounting that interviewing agents advised the subject of the nature of the interview. But they did not do that with Flynn. He was discouraged from consulting counsel and from reporting the FBI’s request to speak with him to his White House chain-of-command. He was not given the customary advice of rights — the FBI, after officials acknowledged among themselves that they owed it to Flynn to advise him that a false statement could be grounds for prosecution, willfully withheld this admonition from him.
Speaking of the “302” report, written by the agent accompanying Peter Strzok: the “302” used in the prosecution of Michael Flynn was not the original, but rather was edited–by Peter Strzok himself. Text messages between Strzok and his lover/accomplice FBI lawyer Lisa Page from February 2017 reveal this.
“Lisa, you didn’t see it before my edits that went into what I sent to you. I was trying to completely re-write the thing so as to save [redacted] voice and 2) get it out to you for general review and comment in anticipation of needing it soon… [I’m] trying not to completely re-write [it].”
Only after Michael Flynn fired his legal team on June 6, 2019 and hired attorney Sidney Powell a week later did it eventually come to light that the original “302” was never made available to the defense. Through Powell’s work, there are a lot of signs that shows that Flynn’s previous lawyers did not do their job properly. Powell has consistently requested the original 302, only to finally hear from the DOJ that the FBI ‘lost and destroyed’ the original 302!
Would the original “302” makes it abundantly clear that Michael Flynn actually did nothing wrong, and the edits done by Peter Strzok were clear attempts to fuel the incrimination of an innocent man? All roads point to that, Let’s be clear. An organization like the FBI cannot and would never ‘accidentally’ lose and destroy valuable information. Every time we hear that an organization like the FBI has ‘lost,’ ‘misplaced,’ or ‘accidentally destroyed’ important self-incriminating evidence, it doesn’t take a genius to see ‘coverup’ written all over it. The main problem is, most people don’t have the time or patience to look deeply enough into the evidence to draw the obvious conclusions they provide. And coverups will continued to work up until there is a sufficient desire on the part of the general public to investigate the facts in detail and piece together the evidence in a way to build their own narrative about what is going on behind the scenes.
The Evidence Is Overwhelming
For those who maintain the validity of the mainstream narrative that the Obama Administration did not commit any crimes before, during or after the transition of the Trump administration into the White House, I would ask you this simple question: does the mainstream media ever say ‘you don’t have to trust us, look at the evidence yourself and draw your own conclusions’? The answer is no. They do not. By and large they try to assure you that THEY can be trusted, and you shouldn’t bother to do all that investigative work yourself. After all, their information comes from trusted ‘sources’ and well-connected ‘officials.’ You may have noticed that more and more you are not told who these people actually are.
Up until the rise of the internet and social media, this has been an easy game for them to play. The mainstream media has long had domain over ‘normal’ perception, and have made the general public comfortable with that perception, because it is the same perception they have had since their childhood. This always gave them some kind of tacit authority to ridicule as ‘conspiracy theory’ (a CIA term designed to dissuade people from looking deeper) all attempts to investigate what is going on behind the scenes. The mainstream media is the greatest tool the Deep State has used in the coverup of high-level crimes. Note that CIA involvement in mainstream media is now well documented and incontestable, as discussed here and here.
With the rise of the internet, it is a lot easier to proliferate facts and important details. This is helping us realize that, by and large, the mainstream media do not provide all the important details in making their case. With respect to Michael Flynn, they keep pounding away at the fact that he admitted to lying. And then they ridiculed the idea that he was withdrawing his guilty plea as though it was some sort of legal ploy. But note–they never provide the real reasons that Flynn has withdrawn his guilty plea. They don’t talk about the serious failings of his original legal defense team, the withholding of exculpatory information by the original DOJ prosecutors and the FBI, the serious overreach of Judge Emmet Sullivan that continues to this day. Each one of these aspects of the Michael Flynn case is rife with evidence of malfeasance worthy of its own deep investigative article.
And that’s just the Michael Flynn case. The same can be said about the cases of Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, and Paul Manafort. All three of them were surveilled as a consequence of FISA warrants that are being shown to have been obtained illegally and without a reasonable predicate.
And then illegal FISA warrants are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the use of Russia as the tried-and-true ‘Boogey Man’ to get a majority of the public against Donald Trump and his administration, as a means to find a way to get him out of office. This is not at all to say that Russia is truly a harmless ally. Not at all. But that is the subject of a far different discussion. What is being said here is that the proposition that “Donald Trump was colluding with Russia” was a completely fabricated premise that the Deep State have been trying to substantiate since before the 2016 election. And again, logic would dictate that the only reason they would ever devote so much time, money and human resources to this deception is because they saw it as the only way they would be able to continue to hide their serious criminal activities.
The Oval Office Meeting
As a for-instance, there was an extraordinary meeting in the Oval Office on January 5th, just one day after Peter Strzok made the move to keep the Flynn investigation open, possibly on orders from CIA Director John Brennan as we discussed above. The ‘official’ story Comey told the House Intelligence Committee was that he alerted CIA Director John Brennan as soon as he learned about the Flynn calls. Regardless, what is said to have happened in this meeting is that President Obama was briefed by Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper about Michael Flynn. The story is that they were concerned about Flynn’s phone calls, though that seems to be a smoke screen now as we know the intel agencies had recordings of those phone calls all along and there was nothing incriminating within them. What makes more sense is that Brennan and Clapper were trying to impress upon Obama the urgency of preventing Michael Flynn from becoming Trump’s National Security Advisor.
At the end of the meeting, the president asked FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to stay behind. Joining them were Vice President Joe Biden and National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Yates recounted during a 2017 interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team that Obama began by saying “he had learned of the information about Flynn” and his conversations with Kislyak regarding the sanctions on Russia.
This was very surprising to Yates, who as the Justice Department’s No. 2 official oversaw the FBI but had not been told about it. She was obviously on a ‘need-to-know’ basis about this matter from some higher authority. One can only speculate what exactly was said during this meeting, but here is where James Comey may have been told that the Flynn investigation needed to remain open and Comey had to redouble his agency’s efforts to find something on Flynn.
Surely if these sorts of maneuvers were being discussed they would have to all agree on a ‘cover’ story to explain what this meeting was all about, convened as it was only 15 days before president-elect Donald Trump was to take office. Just the fact that the outgoing administration is focused on this matter rather than tending to the transition in a way that would most benefit the American people would raise eyebrows. It seems almost the result of paranoia that Susan Rice would send an email to herself only a few hours after Donald trump’s inauguration iterating the story that was made for public consumption, if in fact news about this meeting ever came out.
Rice insists in an email to herself that things are being done ‘by the book.’ She repeats that phrase 3 times in this short email. As they say in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, “Methinks the lady doth protest too much.”
If we refer back to the gold mine of hidden information that keeps on giving, the text messages between Peter Strzok and his accomplice/lover Lisa Page, we find out that the official story that Barack Obama ‘is not asking about, initiating, or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective’ as a matter of course is severely put into question. In a Sept. 2, 2016 text exchange, Page writes that she was preparing talking points because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” For those who don’t know, ‘POTUS’ is an acronym for ‘President of the United States’.
What They Might Be Trying To Hide
Again, I would love to dive more deeply into the nature of the crimes that will hopefully get revealed as “Obamagate” unfolds through the current Senate Judiciary Committee hearings and the investigative work being done by prosecutor John Durham and others, but I’m unfortunately past my time limit and length limit for one article. As I’ve said before, this is the nature of searching for the truth behind a well-constructed wall of deception. It is a slow and difficult process, and there is little money available to pay journalists whose sole objective is to find the truth, while there is a virtually unlimited supply of money for those willing to participate in the skillful suppression and obfuscation of the truth.
Let me just say for now that the ultimate goal of the Deep State is the creation of a global authority, in which those at the top of the Deep State pyramid simply continue to appoint themselves as the rulers of the planet, very much aligned with the doctrine of the “divine right of kings.” What is different in this day and age is that information, and not brute force, is the true measure of power. In order to accomplish total control over the world, it has been necessary to slowly build a comprehensive and weaponized surveillance grid throughout the world. The surveillance grid in China, built on the back of American technology that has been strategically leaked to China by Deep State American actors (think the supposed Chinese ‘hack’ of Hillary Clinton’s private server which contained classified information as one example) seems to be the model that the Deep State was looking to proliferate worldwide, both technologically and politically.
Now getting this done in the United States would probably be the biggest challenge, but through the Obama administration a lot of progress was made in building the domestic surveillance infrastructure and actually putting it into practice. In an article I wrote entitled ‘The Hidden Reason The ‘Russia Collusion’ Investigation Ever Got Started,‘ I provide evidence that a surveillance system secretly referred to as The ‘Hammer,’ designed by software design genius Dennis Montgomery for foreign surveillance, was weaponized and turned against the American people. The following is from the article, which I would call a must-read if you want to get to the heart of ‘Obamagate’:
Montgomery eventually discovered that his surveillance system was being used against the American people. And so on August 19th, 2015, Montgomery turned whistleblower and alerted FBI Director James Comey’s office in 2015 that President Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan and Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had turned the super-surveillance system that Montgomery designed for foreign surveillance into a domestic surveillance system. Montgomery asserts that Obama, Brennan, and Clapper used ‘The Hammer’ in a diabolically intrusive manner in order to spy on the American people and collect massive amounts of surveillance data for “leverage” and “blackmail.”
It should not come as any surprise that James Comey sat on the voluminous whistleblower testimony he received from Montgomery and to this day this information has not been officially acknowledged. As indicated in the article, the information has only come out through the work of brave investigative journalists that my article gets much of its information from whose sole motivation is to reveal the truth.
I would like to reiterate what those journalists have said, and what all those whose sole objective is to uncover the truth have said: You don’t have to trust me. In fact you shouldn’t. Please do your own research. Follow the facts where they lead you to. Be a relentless seeker of the truth. Once a critical mass of people do that, all this deception will no longer have a place to hide.
We are a long way from being able to confirm or deny the substance behind Donald Trump’s current rallying cry “Obamagate!” However, one thing is pretty certain. In today’s polarized climate, a vast majority of right-leaning folks would give credence to the notion that Obama has committed serious malfeasance, while most who identify on the left consider the single-word accusation ludicrous. Whatever turns out to be true, if and when we get to the bottom of it American politics will never be the same.
Let’s be clear right off the top that, unlike the majority of political commentaries in the mainstream and even in alternative news, I will be making an effort not to align with either side of the well-worn battle lines between Left and Right, Republican and Democrat. The attempt here will be to rise above that artificial polarity and examine the known facts as objectively as possible, with the intention of informing the reader as to what has actually been going on behind the scenes.
It is heartening to see that in this time of awakening, people are starting to reject this artificial polarity and the identities of a growing number of people are no longer defined by whether they are ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative.’ Certainly, one can say that there is a ‘real’ distinction between the two sides, but the only value in making this distinction is to realize that the human experience is optimized when these two polarities are in balance. The notion that one will ultimately win over the other is what fuels the never-ending political divide. In effect, once we distance ourselves from identifying with one or the other of these polarities, we begin to see the whole political dichotomy as a control mechanism designed to keep us divided.
My Liberal Origins
So I’ll start with full disclosure: most of my life I identified with the Liberal party in Canada. When I turned my attention to American politics a few decades ago, I was an ardent supporter of Bill Clinton, a critic of George W. Bush and later was absolutely enamored with Barack Obama. In fact, in early 2008, I happened to be visiting my sister in Florida and Barack Obama had a rally scheduled less than an hour away. I felt that the Obama presidency might be historic and I wouldn’t have forgiven myself if I didn’t take this rare opportunity to see the man in person.
I was not disappointed. Not only did I find him to be even more charismatic and articulate than I even thought he was, I was even more convinced that he was about to bring “Change We Can Believe In.” Here is the sign I held up at the rally all those years ago.
The climax of the evening actually came after the rally was over, and Obama walked off the stage to rousing applause and outstretched hands. There was no way of getting close to him to offer my hand, I thought. I was stuck at the front of some grandstands that sat far from the stage. Yet as fate would have it, his exit path ran directly past the grandstands that I was in. He started reaching up hand over hand with the people at the front. I squirmed through and somehow my left hand clasped his (extra special since we are both left-handed) and our eyes met at the same time. The moment was electric, as it felt like I was seeing into the soul of one of the greatest and most sincere leaders the world has ever known. I may have been willing to give him my left arm right then and there if he asked for it.
The Evolution Of My Thought
Twelve years later, much has changed–and it is not the ‘change we can believe in’ that Obama was touting in 2004. But it is a good change nonetheless, a change within me. As painful as it sometimes is, if our thinking is to continue to grow and evolve, we must always subject our own cherished beliefs to scrutiny, especially in the face of events that contradict them. While I found many of Obama’s early speeches to be inspiring and captivating, some of the policies coming out of his administration were a bit puzzling.
Then as his second term wore on, his actions in the world appeared contradictory to his promise of peaceful collaboration, while his rhetoric, always measured, became more serious and less heartening. During his presidency, though, I went along with the popular theory that Obama was highly compromised, as all presidents are, and that he had to ‘play ball’ with the powerful forces behind American politics instead of really doing what he wanted if he was to avoid the fate of JFK.
Today, I can’t say that I know for sure who Barack Obama is, or ever was. But in my eyes, evidence seems to be growing that he has been part of criminal activity like massive illegal domestic surveillance, unjust violence abroad under the fog of war and terrorism, a reduction of protections for whistleblowers, and huge coverups of the illegal activities of people connected to his administration.
Was he a manchurian candidate from the start, or was he an idealistic community organizer who rose to great heights only to get the hammer of reality dropped on him when he was inaugurated? Did he succumb to threats, bribes, and other such enticements to become ideologically and morally aligned with dark forces? Or is he in fact exactly as he currently portrays himself, as a good person and a great president whose administration, in his words, ‘didn’t have a scandal’? Let’s see what the evidence suggests.
It must be said that ‘Obamagate’ presupposes the existence of a ‘Deep State’, a cabal that has placed or bribed/blackmailed a great number of people in powerful and influential positions in all branches of government, the military, intelligence, and mainstream media. Further, unlike previous presidents including Barack Obama who were part of or have been willing to go along with the Deep State, Donald Trump is seen as having been supported by a military/intelligence axis that opposed the Deep State, and who sought to employ Trump to help them ‘drain the swamp’ (i.e. remove Deep State players from power and, where possible, prosecute them for their crimes). I’m not asking you to just take my word on this, but you have to admit that if it’s true, it would really explain the relentless motivation to denigrate Donald Trump in the public eye at every turn, and ultimately try every trick in the book to remove him from power.
Please note that the belief in the existence of a ‘Deep State’ based on the evidence available is not participating in ‘far-right’ conspiracy theories, much as the mainstream media would want it characterized that way. In fact, the Deep State is seen as having had control over powerful people on both sides of the political aisle for a very long time. It was certainly in control during the George W. Bush administration, and his father George H. W. Bush was known as a high-ranking member. John F. Kennedy, probably the last president truly opposed to the Deep State, recognized its presence a lot more clearly than most people realize:
We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.
Today, the Deep State is doing most of its damage through the Democratic party because Donald Trump has not aligned with them, or their minions within the Republican party. Many such players have already been removed from power. For me, this is not a testament to Trump as much as it is a testament to the power and cohesion that the military/intelligence axis that supports him has finally reached, an endeavor that has been going on at least since JFK was murdered.
It’s not within the scope of this article to provide evidence of the existence of the Deep State, but some of my previous articles here, here, here, here, and here should help to satisfy those who are looking for more concrete examples of the Deep State’s activities and modus operandi.
What Is Obamagate?
Now ‘Obamagate’ itself centers on claims that officials in then-President Barack Obama’s administration went after a number of Trump officials as early as Trump’s nomination in order to prevent him from winning the 2016 election, and then through his early presidency to get him removed from office. The narrative holds that Obama, along with his then-Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and agents from multiple intelligence services in both the US and abroad, knowingly planted a phony theory that Trump was colluding with Russia in order to win the 2016 election. This theory, supported by virtually no ‘evidence’ except the now-dismissed ‘Steele Dossier,’ was used as the basis to get FISA warrants to spy on select members of Donald Trump’s inner circle who could be tied in any way to Russia, in order to further build on the narrative of Russian collusion.
Wherever possible, those spied upon were prosecuted in order to amplify suspicion of Trump’s wrongdoing, despite the fact that none of the prosecutions that took place were actually related to the theory that there was Russian collusion in the 2016 election. Among those spied upon through questionable FISA warrants were foreign policy advisor Carter Page, foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos, campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was prosecuted by the Mueller Special Counsel for a number of unrelated crimes, and National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn, who was indicted for lying to the FBI by the Mueller Counsel as well.
While each of these four, and many others, have their own detailed story to tell that allege they were wrongfully targeted by the Obama administration, we would require a full article for each person in order to examine their complex story properly. So for the purposes of this article we will focus on the person who is currently in the news, General Michael Flynn, and dive into the facts surrounding his experiences and see what we can extrapolate from that.
The Case Study: General Michael Flynn
Here I will attempt to use the pertinent facts in the Michael Flynn case in order to see if these facts give any support to the ‘Obamagate’ narrative. I have to honestly note here how difficult it is to try to walk the line between two opposing narratives while objectively presenting the points of view in good faith. Here goes.
FACT: Barack Obama had issues with General Michael Flynn’s pushback on Obama’s attempts to remove Syria’s president.
Under President Obama, Flynn became director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in July 2012. They clashed heads over foreign policy in the Middle East and particularly in Syria. Flynn announced his retirement from the military on April 30, 2014, about a year earlier than he had been scheduled to leave his position. As noted in Wikipedia:
[Flynn] believed he was pressed into retirement for questioning the Obama administration’s public narrative that Al Qaeda was close to defeat. Journalist Seymour Hersh wrote that “Flynn confirmed that his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings… about the dire consequences of toppling [Syrian President] Assad.”
According to Flynn, these reports “got enormous pushback from the Obama administration,” who he felt “did not want to hear the truth.” According to former DIA official W. Patrick Lang: “Flynn incurred the wrath of the White House by insisting on telling the truth about Syria… they shoved him out. He wouldn’t shut up.”
There is a lot of information supporting the notion that the Obama administration and his CIA were facilitating the rise of (if not downright building, supplying, and training) Al Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist groups in the Middle East. This coincided with a primary objective for the Deep State in the Middle East, the removal of Syrian president Bashar al Assad. We have written extensively about the Deep State propagation of false-flag chemical attacks through their mainstream media arm, falsely blaming the Syrian president for ‘gassing his own people’ to sway public opinion against him here, here, here, here and here.
If someone has as their agenda the removal of a sitting president in a foreign country, and they have become aware of the Deep State’s previous commerce-centered strategy which John Perkins so comprehensively describes in his book Confessions of an Economic Hitman, then the next strategy is to build up local opposition groups with money, training, and supplies in order to fight the proxy war, with promises of untold rewards if the objectives are met. This appears to be why ISIS and other Middle East terrorist groups gained steam during the Obama administration. If General Michael Flynn was blowing the whistle on this powerful operation, and was not willing to shut up despite pressure being applied, then he would certainly be seen as a dangerous impediment to their plans and would get labeled an ‘Enemy of the [Deep] State’ in the eyes of the Obama administration.
FACT: Barack Obama warned president-elect Trump about Flynn
Still in the aftershocks of Trump winning the 2016 election, Obama must have felt it important enough to stress in their first post-election meeting how much of a bad idea it would be to have Michael Flynn on his national security team, as per this New York Times article:
President Barack Obama warned Donald J. Trump against hiring Michael T. Flynn to be part of his national security team when Mr. Obama met with his successor in the Oval Office two days after the November election, two former Obama administration officials said on Monday. Mr. Obama, who had fired Mr. Flynn as the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told Mr. Trump that he would have profound concerns about Mr. Flynn becoming a top national security aide, said the administration officials, who were briefed on the Oval Office conversation.
So one way of looking at this, to give the mainstream narrative its due, is that Barack Obama sincerely felt that Michael Flynn would be a detriment to Trump’s administration, and wanted to help Trump out. But are we really that naive? How often does someone from one party actually help out someone from the other party? Is it not more likely, given the general polarization we see in American politics, that there was an ulterior motive here?
I will be presenting evidence later that demonstrate that the outgoing Obama administration did little to nothing to help Trump out during the transition. Here is what I consider a more plausible explanation for Obama’s warning: if the election of Donald Trump was, as the narrative goes, big trouble for the past administration, since Trump was not one of ‘them,’ then Michael Flynn, a man who ‘knew where the bodies were buried,’ as they say, would be very damaging to them if he had Trump’s ear on national security.
Certainly, Obama going to Trump and chumming up to him in order to dissuade him from hiring Flynn would be one of many strategies the Deep State would consider using if they wanted to delay the uncovering of their crimes, until such time as they could find a way to remove Trump from power. And hasn’t removing Trump from power been the focal point of the Democratic Party/mainstream media axis the whole time? Whether it be by digging up potential scandals from the past, having bought-and-paid-for celebrities graphically wishing him dead, organized campaigns accusing him of racism, misogyny and xenophobia, pushing the Russia Collusion narrative all the way to the East Siberian Sea, and filling the news cycle with insubstantial articles of impeachment, we have been inundated by a perceived need in the mainstream to get him out of office any which way we can.
Beyond just hating Trump for being a pompous reality-TV buffoon, there must be a serious reason for all the commotion we’ve seen. If in fact he was such a buffoon and incapable of handling the rigors of being president and commander-in-chief of the biggest armed forces in the world, as the mainstream media continues to suggest, the opposition likely would have sat back and let the fruits of his actions speak for themselves. But rather than do that, the mainstream media is working hard to characterize every one of Trump’s actions in a bad light before people even have a chance to evaluate the actual impact of what he is doing. This smells like panic and fear evoked by threats to one’s self-preservation more than anything else.
This article has reached its limit and we haven’t even gotten into the timeline of the case against General Michael Flynn! I guess that’s a consequence of diving deep into the details. Instead of continuing here, I will work on a second article that will serve as Part 2 of this analysis of why ‘Obamagate’ could become the biggest political scandal in history. The full timeline and details of Michael Flynn’s prosecution are sure to continue providing some interesting insights.
When something is repeated over and over, it often has the capacity to put us to sleep. But occasionally, it has the opposite effect. Sometimes in the wake of redundant messaging our senses are aroused to a bitter taste or a stale odor that tells us something is just not right.
I had such an experience in tuning in to Ontario’s daily COVID-19 briefing today which I had done, optimistically, to see if there was any advance on when schools would be opening for my 6-year old. (no such luck). It came at the beginning of health minister Christine Elliot’s segment:
Before I begin, I would like to acknowledge and celebrate our amazing nurses, on this first day of National Nurses Week. Day and night our heroic nurses work tirelessly to care for the people of Ontario. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Over the past few months, Ontario’s health care system has demonstrated remarkable responsiveness to the COVID-19 outbreak. That is in large part to our partners on the front lines, including our nurses, doctors, homecare, hospital and long-term care staff, personal support workers, and first-responders among many others. As we’ve confronted COVID-19, we’ve made historic investments to dramatically expand hospital capacity, and support the brave heroes working on the front lines of our healthcare system.
Elliot was literally gushing as she extolled the virtues of our health care workers. It was almost as though she had convinced herself that her plaudits were sincere.

What’s The Motive?
The surface political motive for many of our leaders to heap praise on health care workers, and encourage the public to do the same, is fairly straightforward. In thanking others, one gets to bask in the reflected glory of their accomplishments.
But upon deeper reflection, one can see that this strategy is so widely employed in the case of this pandemic because it simultaneously touches on all the bases that our authority want conveyed during their public proclamations. In fact, there are few social programming techniques that I can think of that are more powerful or effective. Let’s touch on a few of the bases ourselves:
Amplifying the Severity of the Pandemic. Through the clever sleight-of-hand of the praise of others, which the listening audience tends to take in readily with their guard down and their discernment filters on pause, the speaker is able to fully convince us of the danger we are facing, by commending health care workers for being willing to confront this danger. The more heroic we are made to think they are, the more danger that is implied. While the praise towards our fellow human beings (who are not part of the authority) makes us feel good to a certain extent, what is really being heightened in us is that low-level fear that this virus is lurking, ready to pounce on us at any misstep. A public that is in this state of fear is much easier to control and manipulate.
Legitimizing Western medicine. Listen to her terminology. ‘our partners on the front lines…the brave heroes working on the front lines.’ Why ‘Front lines’? Why is health care a ‘fight,’ always some kind of ‘war’? Because this has been the pre-eminent strategy of Western medicine all along–to make us feel that there has been an enemy invasion (a virus). To make us feel that our body does not have the necessary defense mechanisms (Western medicine virtually ignores our immune system). To make us feel that we are under attack, need protection, and the army of doctors and researchers spawned from Western medical school is our only hope (of course this is why traditional medicine, which works in concert with the immune system, has for so long been labelled quackery and pseudoscience).
Reinforcing government authority. In praising the health care workers and the system they operate within, our authority is actually reinforcing its own praiseworthiness without saying it directly. Instead, the government is seen as the benevolent manager of the whole process, ‘partnering’ with those laudable heroes in the health care system. So when the government brags that they’ve ‘made historic investments to dramatically expand hospital capacity,’ should we be standing up and applauding? Or should we be asking, if this whole government-medical system partnership is working so well, shouldn’t we be seeing a reduction in hospital beds instead of a constant increase? Shouldn’t the citizens as a whole be getting healthier, rather than getting sicker and more in need of drugs and treatments, as all the evidence and statistics tell us?
Nobody’s Knocking Our Health Care Workers
Now before anybody starts saying I’m knocking our health care workers, stop. Actually, if you’ve gotten this far in the article, I probably don’t have to worry about you. It is those who just read the headlines and then feel justified in making their outrage known on Facebook about seeing ‘another ridiculous conspiracy theory.’ The fact is, a bit of honest reflection will force us to admit that at some level we all know that our authority is trying to pull something on us every time they speak.
Just for the record, I believe health care is a very noble profession, with a majority of those working within the system being truly dedicated to the health and well-being of the patients they come into contact with.
However, this pandemic has not turned everybody working in health care into Florence Nightengales, as our leaders and mainstream media would have us believe. Those who were competent and caring in 2018 and 2019 are competent and caring in 2020 during this pandemic. Those who were incompetent and apathetic to their patients in the past have for the most part probably remained that way under the circumstances we currently face. Like in any occupation, there are good workers and bad workers. When a patient says ‘thank-you’ to a nurse or doctor for their service and care, it is spontaneous and authentic. It is meaningful. On the other hand, calling on the entire public to say ‘thank you’ to all health care workers, in speeches and promotional ads everywhere, 24/7, is likely staged and grounded in a very different agenda.
The sooner we see through the motives behind these attempts to tell us what to think and how to feel, the sooner we will have a society founded on truth and authenticity.
When Seattle police officer Greg Anderson’s Instagram video reached a few thousand views, his command sent him a message saying ‘Wow, Greg. What a powerful message! We agree with that one hundred percent. Well done!’
Three hours later, he got a call from his command and their tone had changed considerably: ‘Hey, Greg. The video is up to 400,000 views. It’s time to pull the plug on this thing.’ Anderson declined.
A couple of hours later, with the video skyrocketing and Anderson getting a multitude of encouraging messages from fellow law enforcement officers past and present he has known, the tone of his command in a subsequent phone call was even more threatening: ‘Listen, the video needs to be taken down right now, and you need to accept a letter of reprimand–or, we’re going to take a very different approach to this if you say ‘no’ again.’
Later he was contacted by the Chief of Police, who Anderson says he has great respect for. The Chief put things squarely to Anderson: ‘Greg, if you openly defy your governor, you can’t be a police officer in the state of Washington.’
Greg Anderson’s Video
The video you are about to see here is a remarkably frank and candid reflection on police overreach and tyranny during the current COVID-19 crisis, and the actual role and true responsibilities of police whether in times of crisis or not:
Every time I turn on the television, every time I look to the internet, I’m seeing people arrested, or cited, for going to church, for travelling on the roadways, for going surfing, opening their businesses, going to the park with their families, or doing nails out of their own house, using their own house as a place of business, and having undercover agents go there, and arrest them, and charge them. With what? With a crime? I don’t know what crime people are committing by doing nails in their own house, but, we’re seeing this more and more and more, and we need to start looking at ourselves as officers, and thinking: ‘Is what I’m doing right?’
Now I want to remind you that no matter where you stand on the coronavirus we don’t have the authority to do those things to people, just because a mayor, or a governor, tells you otherwise. I don’t care if it’s your sergeant or your chief of police, we don’t get to violate people’s constitutional rights because somebody in our chain of command tells us otherwise. It’s not how this country works.
I could really quote the whole video, because I believe it is gold. I would highly recommend listening carefully to what Greg Anderson has to say here.
A few days after his video was released, Anderson released a companion video to get people caught up with what has happened to him. Here we find out that he has been put on ‘administrative leave pending termination,’ which is essentially his authority’s cowardly way of essentially firing him without having to deal with as much immediate blowback from the public.
After hearing Anderson speak here, it is hard not to be wholly impressed by his integrity and equanimity in the face of uncertainty that has been brought upon him.
Heroes inspire. Heroes stand up for principles no matter the threats to their own personal well-being and safety. Greg Anderson has put a very important stake in the ground representing what it means to be a police officer, and all fellow police officers owe it to themselves to follow his example. The public is certainly behind Anderson’s initiative. If you don’t believe it, look at the overwhelming support he is getting on a GoFund Me page set up by his wife’s best friend, after being willing to forsake his job for his principles:
I just checked again. The donations are at $239,004. In. One. Day. The public is inspired, and obviously have been hungry to hear this kind of message from a member of the police force.
I have long thought about the plans in place for a dystopian totalitarian security state in the image of George Orwell’s 1984, and the one thought that always gave me solace was that there would hopefully be enough awakened and principled people in law enforcement that would not be willing to carry out orders that would infringe on the rights of their fellow human beings. With courageous messages such as the one shared by Greg Anderson, which hopefully will be reiterated by others in law enforcement who have told him that they support his position, my faith is strengthened.
What is important for each of us, however, especially if we want to honor the bravery of people like Greg Anderson, is to examine ourselves and ready ourselves to stand up for our principles any time they are infringed upon, even if this costs us our job or more. If we are together on this, it will not be long before the obsolete control mechanism we have been living under all our lives is disabled for good.
Dr. Jeffrey Barke, a well-respected California family doctor, took to the microphone during a rally in Riverside, CA a few days ago to air some of his common-sense views shared by many in his profession that he says are being silenced by those in power.
My name is Dr. Jeff Barke and I’m here representing thousands of physicians across the country whose voices are being silenced because we don’t agree with the mainstream media, and the ‘experts’ who are telling us what to do.
As I mention in my previously published article ‘Why This ‘Pandemic’ Is Looking More Like A Social Engineering Experiment,’ those in power seem to be enforcing safety and health measures that do not square with the actual data (which itself has been shown to be exaggerated) in order to test out larger and more comprehensive attempts to gain power and enforce compliance of the people.
The Revolution Has Started
Of course, we can take solace in the notion that the quarantine measures that healthy people are being subjected to are probably getting rushed in and forced upon us a bit more quickly than our authority would want, because they are feeling like their time is running out and they have to make this push now while some in the population have not yet awakened to the truth.
However, with the rapid communication afforded by social media to get a message out to the world–this article itself being spawned by a video found on social media–we are past the point when the genie can be put back in the bottle. The revolution that is the awakening of the people of the world to the truth cannot be stopped.
With the help of people like Jeff Barke and many others, we are starting to see the links between health, media, politics, and our inherent rights and freedoms as citizens.
Never in the history of this great Republic have we quarantined the healthy. Never in the history of this great Republic have we told church-goers that it’s illegal for you to exercise your first-amendment right of freedom of religion–yet, at the same time, it’s essential to keep pot dispensaries open.
Never before in our country have we let criminals out of jail, but we’ve told you you can’t exercise your second amendment right and protect yourself by purchasing a firearm.
The Declaration of Independence and our U.S. Constitution was never designed to restrain the people, it was designed to restrain the government.
Dr. Barke then goes on to discuss the data that is fairly widely agreed upon–that COVID-19 appears to have the same risks as a bad seasonal flu, and herd immunity, widely seen as the best and only way to truly protect against such diseases.
We can never achieve herd immunity by keeping the herd quarantined. It’s time that we protect the vulnerable and the most at risk, but we allow the young and the healthy to open the doors and go back to work.
Certainly people have different opinions about this and any other matter. However, what we obviously would have consensus on is that we each have the right to make our own decisions and choices. This is the basic precept we must come together on. Once we the people fully grasp the power we have as a collective, and awaken to the truth of what has been going on in the world, that is when the world will start becoming a reflection of our loftiest dreams.
