1.) When I was in DC, doing deep research on the issues around spygate and trying to understand the depth of corruption within the legislative and judicial branches, I ran into a guy...
2.) DC was locked down at the time (May/June 2020), so there were very few people around. However, this guy's credentials within the DC system were impeccable.

I checked him out afterward & was stunned at how he spent his entire career in/around the IC and related apparatus
3.) After a lengthy and casual introduction and discussion, I was genuinely shocked at the severity of his warnings about the FBI, DOJ and various other agencies.

However, in hindsight, after checking him out, I realized he was certainly a person to understand.
4.) His warning was direct, devoid of emotion, very deliberate and very cold. But behind his eyes and words was a guy telling the truth; the quiet part that no-one inside the bubble says openly.
5.) What he said was that not a single person of honor or integrity can survive inside the DC institutions we were discussing. The system itself is designed to remove them... All of them... every-single-one.
6.) He laughed at the term "honorable" rank and file. But it wasn't a snarky laugh; it was almost like a resignation laugh... a genuine look toward the sky and compassion for a view I held that his honesty would destroy.
7.) He wasn't bitter, angry or jaded; and I would not call him cynical. He was very genuine, very wise, held decades of knowledge.... and was a "just the facts" kinda Joe Friday guy.
8.) I found out a few days later his job within the system was sending him overseas again. Perhaps that's why he apparently wanted to tell the genuine side of his story and experience. Dunno, but I will never forget it.
9.) I still held the belief there were three branches of government.... and there were "checks and balances"... and there had to be some way for a good person to expose corruption.

He quickly dispatched those beliefs (with examples).
10.) He explained the "checks and balances" I spoke of did exist at a time when there were three branches of government. However, that time has long passed.

There is only one overarching DC eco-system now. The three branch concept is gone. Doesn't exist.
11.) As he explained, the levers of power are all controlled by the same system, and behind that system are positions - not people. "Positions"
12.) People are evaluated based on their ability to support and protect the system. Their skill level is what moves them into position.

Position. Evaluation. Next Position. Evaluation. Etc.
13.) The system more like an institution. Within the institution there are divisions. The divisions are what we used to call "branches".

The divisions (branches) are not independent from the institution of DC. The divisions are operated by people in power who hold positions.
14.) He identified the timeline of this institutional creation as a slow build (over decades), but most visibly increasing in publicity after 9/11/01 and the patriot act.
15.) Once the patriot act made the government responsible for total safety; the previously embedded bad actors took full control. One office of particular note was the creation of the ODNI.

As he noted the amassing of surveillance power.
16.) once that Rubicon was crossed, everything after was downstream and unstoppable. The institution of the total intelligence apparatus now had full control.... over every branch (which again, he said is more like 'divisions').
17.) When he explained about the Inspector General part, I understood why the IG's offices (all of them) are compromised.... and why there can never be a whistleblower against the system.

Remember the "positions" part. Yeah, the IG's are key on that aspect.
18.) When he explained the legislative committee heads, he also explained how 'advise and consent' is used to keep the (executive) positions staffed only with particular people who have passed the institutional evaluation.
19.) He would know... his experience was deep in the part of the system that does the evaluation.

Think about what is needed to move into a position. A background check right? A clearance right?

Control of the people in the system, is done from the place where checks are done
20.) This is the place where people of honor and integrity are weeded out. They are a threat; or really not so much a threat, but just the "wrong type" of people. Said with a very matter-of-fact acceptance.
21.) One of the key institutions who do the background checks is The FBI.

That is why the FBI had to be compromised first in the structure of the new (post 9/11) system.

Visual Aid Below: Image
22.) Once you realize there is only one party, the UniParty, the next step is to recognize there are no longer three branches within government.

Then everything that has previously created frustration starts to make sense.
23) The discussion about there no longer being three branches of government was an eye-opening part of the talk... But if you think about it, it makes sense.

The executive, the legislative and the judicial branches all defer to the Intelligence Community. Image
24) Here's the exercise he sent me away with. If you doubt this thread, apply the scientific method to the hypothesis.

Show me a single example where they don't.

1) Let me bring FU type clarity to the "reasonable reforms" argument.

I have talked to everyone in DC about this. They are idiots. Not making mistakes, just plain allowing the IC to tell them nonsense. So, let me be clear.
2) Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified April 27, 2023, more than 3.4 million search queries into the NSA database took place between Dec. 1st, 2020 and Nov. 30th, 2021, by government officials and/or contractors working on behalf of the federal government.
3) These search queries were based on authorizations related to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and 702 search authorization.…

1) There are two general flaws in this type of analysis.

While likely accurate that ISIS did not originate the planning of the attack. Two elements stand out that appear to point away from Galloway's supposition.
2) First, the suspects are alive. Meaning, there was no mop up operation behind them to remove the fingerprints of operational control.

Example (mop up): They didn't jump in the car after the attack and have the car explode with them in it. Essentially eliminating the trail. Image
3) The absence of the clean-up (could have been anything - not just my example) implies the people who organized the attackers wanted the attackers to be captured.... and therefore, talk about their prior instructions.

1. Let me be very clear, I have talked to congress about everything involved in Spygate, far, far, far, beyond the @shellenberger generalities and provided over 600 pages of verifiable info documents to prove the events as they took place. THEY DON'T CARE.
2. I also talked to J. Durham and W. Aldenberg about the specific info that proves the IC was coordinating with the Senate (SSCI) on all the Trump targeting stuff. I have been vetted, researched and investigated for providing the docs. Again, they don't care.
3. The apparatus of our govt, has made it perfectly clear they intend to do nothing except cover-up all of the activity because the institutional damage is too encompassing for them to deal with. QUOTE: "The IC activity was too big to cope with," the system is not designed...

1. The J6 pipe bombs were the fedsurrection insurance policy, in the event the feds couldn’t get the crowd to comply with the FBI provocations. If no one stormed the Capitol, the finding of the two pipe bombs would be the emergency to shut down the process.
2. Literally 3 minutes before 2 reps issued a vote for motions to suspend the certification, the House members were “informed” by capitol police and other “agents” that a protest was about to breach the chambers. This effectively halted the Chamber Process.
3. Pence, Pelosi, Schumer, Mcconnell can be seen being walked out and escorted from the chamber.

Once capitol police & other “law enforcements agents” informed the speaker and 3 other individuals, Pelosi UNILATERALLY UNDER EMERGENCY RULES, suspended the business of the congress.

Now that I'm really thinking about this, meaning I've finally stopped laughing,... the only possible explanation can be that in an election year Main Justice is threatening almost the entire U.S. Senate, specifically the Senate Foreign Relations Committee writ large.
I mean seriously. If Ukraine is a money laundering operation (it is) then Qatar is the USA's biggest Dry Cleaner.

We give tens of billions to Qatar, to transfer to other interests, and we use QATAR as the payment mechanism (the bank) for all CIA and IC operations.

It's silly.
I have done so much research on this issue, the government of QATAR actually blocks my website.

I know people in Qatar, that use VPN's just so they have access to my research library. Image

THINK BIGGER. The USA led "western" sanctions against Russian interests were not designed to keep Russia isolated financially, they were designed to keep USA and Western banking customers walled in.

[To create a dollar based CBDC (writ lg) you need a captured base.]
BRICS+ was creating a non-dollar-based currency alternative for trade.

Then comes.... western financial sanctions, under the auspices of Ukraine conflict. But, think "stopgap."

The sanctions didn't block Russia, they walled-in the WEST.

Now you start to see it.
I did not realize the scale of this, until I sat in multiple banks in eastern Europe and listened carefully to the very real and practical process of avoiding western sanctions. Then, after meeting with people specifically to discuss the conflicting reality, it made sense.
