Dictator-in-Chief: The President’s Secret, Unchecked Powers

John & Nisha Whitehead at the Rutherford Institute

“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have given way to permanent crisis management: to policing the planet and fighting preventative wars of ideological containment, usually on terrain chosen by, and favorable to, our enemies. Limited government and constitutional accountability have been shouldered aside by the kind of imperial presidency our constitutional system was explicitly designed to prevent.”
David C. Unger, The Emergency State: America’s Pursuit of Absolute Security at All Costs

America, meet your new dictator-in-chief.

As the New York Times reports, “Newly disclosed documents have shed a crack of light on secret executive branch plans for apocalyptic scenarios—like the aftermath of a nuclear attack—when the president may activate wartime powers for national security emergencies.”

The problem, of course, is that we have become a nation in a permanent state of emergency.

Power-hungry and lawless, the government has weaponized one national crisis after another in order to expand its powers and justify all manner of government tyranny in the so-called name of national security.

The seeds of this present madness were sown almost two decades ago when George W. Bush stealthily issued two presidential directives that granted the president the power to unilaterally declare a national emergency, which is loosely defined as:

any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.

Comprising the country’s Continuity of Government (COG) plan, these directives (National Security Presidential Directive 51 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20) provide a skeletal outline of the actions the president will take in the event of a “national emergency.”

Just what sort of actions the president will take once he declares a national emergency can barely be discerned from the barebones directives. However, one thing is clear: in the event of a national emergency, the COG directives give unchecked executive, legislative and judicial power to the president.

The country would then be subjected to martial law by default, and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights would be suspended.

Essentially, the president would become a dictator for life.

It has happened already.

As we have witnessed in recent years, that national emergency can take any form, can be manipulated for any purpose and can be used to justify any end goal—all on the say-so of the president.

The emergency powers that we know about which presidents might claim during such states of emergency are vast, ranging from imposing martial law and suspending habeas corpus to shutting down all forms of communications, including implementing an internet kill switch, and restricting travel.

Yet according to documents recently obtained by the Brennan Center, there may be many more secret powers that presidents may institute in times of so-called crisis without oversight from Congress, the courts, or the public.

It doesn’t even matter what the nature of the crisis might be—civil unrest, the national emergencies, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters”—as long as it allows the government to justify all manner of government tyranny in the name of so-called national security.

The war on COVID-19, the war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration: all of these programs started out as responses to pressing national concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Deploying the same strategy it used with 9/11 to acquire greater powers under the USA Patriot Act, the police state—a.k.a. the shadow government, a.k.a. the Deep State—has been planning and preparing for such crises for years now, quietly assembling a wish list of presidential lockdown powers that could be trotted out and approved at a moment’s notice.

Indeed, the Trump Administration even asked Congress to allow it to suspend parts of the Constitution whenever it deems it necessary during the COVID-19 crisis and “other” emergencies. The Department of Justice (DOJ) went so far as to quietly trot out and test a long laundry list of terrifying powers that override the Constitution.

We’re talking about lockdown powers (at both the federal and state level): the ability to suspend the Constitution, indefinitely detain American citizens, bypass the courts, quarantine whole communities or segments of the population, override the First Amendment by outlawing religious gatherings and assemblies of more than a few people, shut down entire industries and manipulate the economy, muzzle dissidents, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease,” reshape financial markets, create a digital currency (and thus further restrict the use of cash), determine who should live or die.

These are powers the police state would desperately like to make permanent.

In such a climate, the American president becomes dictator with permanent powers: imperial, unaccountable and unconstitutional.

Bear in mind that the powers the government officially asked Congress to recognize and authorize barely scratch the surface of the far-reaching powers the government has already unilaterally claimed for itself.

Unofficially, the police state with the president at its helm has been riding roughshod over the rule of law for years now without any pretense of being reined in or restricted in its power grabs by Congress, the courts or the citizenry.

Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.

The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whoever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

As law professor William P. Marshall explains,

every extraordinary use of power by one President expands the availability of executive branch power for use by future Presidents

Moreover, it doesn’t even matter whether other presidents have chosen not to take advantage of any particular power, because “it is a President’s action in using power, rather than forsaking its use, that has the precedential significance.”

In other words, each successive president continues to add to his office’s list of extraordinary orders and directives, expanding the reach and power of the presidency and granting him- or herself near-dictatorial powers.

All of the imperial powers amassed by Barack Obama and George W. Bush—to kill American citizens without due process, to detain suspects indefinitely, to strip Americans of their citizenship rights, to carry out mass surveillance on Americans without probable cause, to suspend laws during wartime, to disregard laws with which he might disagree, to conduct secret wars and convene secret courts, to sanction torture, to sidestep the legislatures and courts with executive orders and signing statements, to direct the military to operate beyond the reach of the law, to operate a shadow government above the law and beyond any real accountability — were inherited by Donald Trump and passed along to Joe Biden.

These presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.

These are the powers that continue to be passed along to each successive heir to the Oval Office, the Constitution be damned.

This is what you might call a stealthy, creeping, silent, slow-motion coup d’état.

From Clinton to Bush, Obama to Trump, and now Biden, it’s as if we’ve been caught in a time loop, forced to re-live the same abuses over and over again: the same assaults on our freedoms, the same disregard for the rule of law, the same subservience to the Deep State, and the same corrupt, self-serving government that exists only to amass power, enrich its shareholders and ensure its continued domination.

We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but “we the people” are paying the price for it now.

We are paying the price every day that we allow the government to continue to wage its war on the American People, a war that is being fought on many fronts: with bullets and tasers, with surveillance cameras and license readers, with intimidation and propaganda, with court rulings and legislation, with the collusion of every bureaucrat who dances to the tune of corporate handouts while on the government’s payroll, and most effectively of all, with the complicity of the American people, who continue to allow themselves to be easily manipulated by their politics, distracted by their pastimes, and acclimated to a world in which government corruption is the norm.

Unless something changes in the way we deal with these ongoing, egregious abuses of power, the predators of the police state will continue to wreak havoc on our freedoms, our communities, and our lives.

If we continue down this road, there can be no surprise about what awaits us at the end.

After all, it is a tale that has been told time and again throughout history about how easy it is for freedom to fall and tyranny to rise, and it often begins with one small, seemingly inconsequential willingness on the part of the people to compromise their principles and undermine the rule of law in exchange for a dubious assurance of safety, prosperity and a life without care.

Unfortunately, the process of unseating a dictator and limiting the powers of the presidency is far from simple but at a minimum, it must start with “we the people.”

For starters, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, we must recalibrate the balance of power.

Start locally—in your own communities, in your schools, at your city council meetings, in newspaper editorials, at protests—by pushing back against laws that are unjust, police departments that overreach, politicians that don’t listen to their constituents, and a system of government that grows more tyrannical by the day.

What we desperately need is a concerted, collective commitment to the Constitution’s principles of limited government, a system of checks and balances, and a recognition that they—the president, Congress, the courts, the military, the police, the technocrats and plutocrats and bureaucrats—answer to and are accountable to “we the people.”

This will mean that Americans will have to stop letting their personal politics and party allegiances blind them to government misconduct and power grabs.

It will mean holding all three branches of government accountable to the Constitution (i.e., vote them out of office if they abuse their powers).

And it will mean calling on Congress to put an end to the use of presidential executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements as a means of getting around Congress and the courts.

In other words, we’ve got to start making both the president and the police state play by the rules of the Constitution.

Mass Shootings: The Vicious Cycle Fueled By America’s Toxic Cult of Violence
By John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead
May 25, 2022

Take the latest shooting that took place in Uvalde, Texas, when 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, wearing body armor and carrying a rifle, walked into Robb Elementary School and opened fire, leaving at least 19 children and two teachers dead.

This Uvalde shooting took place ten days after another 18-year-old man, heavily armed and wearing tactical gear (including a tactical helmet and plated armor), opened fire in a grocery store in Buffalo, N.Y, killing 10 people.

In 2018, a 19-year-old former student armed with a gas mask, smoke grenades, magazines of ammunition, and an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle opened fire on students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., leaving 17 people dead.

Ten years ago, 20-year-old Adam Lanza—wearing body armor and black clothing, and armed with military-style weapons—opened fire on students and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., leaving 26 dead. Prior to the shooting, Lanza reportedly spent his days “playing violent video games amid posters showcasing military equipment.”

I’m actually more concerned about the toxic cult of lying; and so too was Eric Blair!

https://www.orwellfoundation.com/the-orwell-foundation/orwell/essays-and-other-works/looking-back-on-the-spanish-war

This kind of thing is frightening to me, because it often gives me the feeling that the very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. After all, the chances are that those lies, or at any rate similar lies, will pass into history. . . . Yet, after all, some kind of history will be written, and after those who actually remember the war are dead, it will be universally accepted. So for all practical purposes the lie will have become truth. . . . If the Leader says of such and such an event, ‘It never happened’ – well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five – well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs – and after our experiences of the last few years that is not a frivolous statement.

Whilst I agree with the author, all definitions of modern fascism are redundant. The coup d’état of the American Constitution and Bill of Rights began with the erasure of the Original Thirteenth Amendment. >

Meaning of the Original 13th Amendment

The “missing” 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows:

“If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.” [End quote]

Consider some evidence of its historical significance:

First, “titles of nobility” were prohibited in both Article VI of the Articles of Confederation (1777) and in Article I, Sections 9 and 10 of the Constitution of the United States (1787);

Second, although already prohibited by the Constitution, an additional “title of nobility” amendment was proposed in 1789, again in 1810, finally ratified in 1819.

Complete text: https://michaelruark.blog/2020/09/12/the-first-and-missing-13th-amendment/

What title is represented by the term “esquire”?

All amendments subsequent to the redirected Thirteenth amendment are acts of treason against citizens of the former United States, and should be repealed via pubic referendum.

It all began with Andrew Jackson. True, it began much earlier in the theoretical sense; but in the practical, nuts and bolts sense, it began with our 6th President.

In 1832 the Supreme Court (in Worchester vs Georgia) ruled that the state of Georgia did not have the legal authority to force the Cherokee Indians off their land. Andrew Jackson did not accept that ruling and sent in the National Guard, resulting in the Trail of Tears.

That single action established the primacy of the Executive Branch over the Judiciary Branch.

It’s been downhill ever since.

when Director of CIA quipped on an open-mic that when everything the American people believe is false then our Mission is Completed. Now, you can cue up George W. Bush on aircraft carrier proclaiming Victory two decades ago (over the American people), and the Subjugation is complete.

To be fair, it really started (in earnest) 7 decades ago, ever since
Truman established the CIA/NSA, but then again that too is sorta false,
since it actually started in 1918, no 1917, no 1898, no 1861, no 1776, uh, 1492,

Power must be limited. Governments have proven, as have Kings and Queens and Popes and Cardinals that they too cannot be trusted. Constitutions too have failed to protect the people against Government.

Take back the power and demand they listen to the majority of people of at least 75 % by referendum to implement any restrictive law on freedoms given to us by GOD.

Hello Jack Bean: I’ve suggested the 75% civil referendum as the only reliable method of Law many times. It would seem the civilian public has bought and paid for their own political suicide. The media continues to brow beat them with the message that they have no value or political choice, and the public continues to buy the cheap hustle.

Elections should process through Sortition, and Lawful conduct defined through public referendum. Representative democracy is obviously a complete failure in terms of civil freedoms and rights.

The first warning should have been the way the Homeland Security legislation was railroaded through Congress after 9/11 with there being no time for anyone to read it. The questions should have been “Where did such comprehensive legislation come from?” and “Why do we need such comprehensive legislation to deal with a local, albeit rather damaging and nasty, emergency?”.

Things haven’t got much better since then. There’s no point in saying “Well, it would never happen” because after Trump we now know that, literally, anything can happen. The only thing that might get in the way is the Deep State, and then not because of institutional opposition but rather institutional inertia — there’s far too many people who still believe in the Constitutional ideal to easily clear a path through them. Its being chipped away at, though. The judiciary, like the other branches of government, are now ‘owned’ but to me by far the most insidious attack was the one on the Civil Service that failed only because it couldn’t be completed in time. This was the move to make the top tier of the Federal Civil Service ‘at will’ employment. We already have seen the negative consequences of cronyism and deeply embedded partisans in the political leadership of government departments. Now imagine what it would be like if those operatives could clean house — anyone who didn’t toe the line could be tossed out onto the scrap heap with no notice, ruining lives and families. Its a powerful tool to force compliance and will work because people are very good at rationalizing when their livelihoods are on the line. (Remember, historical excesses like the extermination of millions of people in WW2 could only have been made possible by the active cooperation of numerous mid and low level people ‘just doing their jobs’ — and not asking awkward questions, the sort that could cause them a lot of trouble.)

I’m rather resigned to living under a fascist government in the US. It won’t be like the ones we see in the grainy black and white newsreels of old, I’d guess it will be closer to what went on in places like Chile and Argentina in more recent times. I’m not happy about this because it will damage the country, its fabric and (what’s left of) its reputation. But I’m too old to push back a lot and a lifetime of “don’t go there” can’t be mitigated by “I told you so” — I fear we may have to experience the fall to realize what we’ve lost and so maybe have a chance of regaining it.

In 2004, I eagerly went to see Michael Moore’s much-anticipated film “Fahrenheit 9/11”; it included an exchange between Michael Moore and veteran progressive-liberal Democratic Congressman John Conyers that both disturbed and puzzled me. I should say that at the time I was still a naïve “progressive” myself, and accepted the vacuous notion that the only “pragmatic” path to political salvation in the US was to elect “more and better Democrats”.

In that interview segment, Conyers– supposedly “one of the good guys” in Congress– explains (or confesses) to Moore that of course no congressperson actually read The Patriot Act before it was overwhelmingly enacted into law.

Like virtually all modern omnibus legislation, The Patriot Act is a closely-written, complex, technically abstruse opus composed by third parties: bureaucrats, lawyers, lobbyists, technical experts, and Congressional staffers. FWIW, individual Elected Misrepresentatives, e.g. Joe Biden, have also claimed credit for “writing” this draconian legislation.

The actual authors were not altruistic angels or disinterested, neutral “experts” striving to create just laws for the benefit of We the People and the common weal; they were loyal, willing servants of their compromised and corrupt government and its capitalist overclass masters.

Besides, the Elected Misrepresentatives themselves are much too busy scheming, glad-handing, and fundraising to sit around and read the legislative dreck they vote upon; they have staff to do the heavy reading, writing, and lifting for them. The nominal legislators are simply the glorified salespersons who sell the adulterated products to the public.

That brief interview stuck in my mind because of the way Conyers drolly disabused Moore and the viewing audience of the civics-class expectation that legislators actually read the laws they pass, and that their votes reflect their well-informed, sober, dispassionate assessment of the laws’ merits, or lack therof.

Conyers clued us in with his characteristic sly smile, reminiscent of the Cheshire Cat in Wonderland, and with a characteristic roguish twinkle in his eye.

As I mentioned, at the time I thought Conyers was on “our” side, somewhat like a popular “cool” high school teacher or coach who shares behind-the-scenes faculty/administrative gossip with students. But I was confused by Conyers’ jovial, winking implication that the “inside information” he’d let us in on was a grand joke of some kind.

Something felt very wrong, but at the time I was so politically unsophisticated, and so anti-Bush, that I couldn’t put my finger on it.

Although the film addressed broader domestic and geopolitical crises, that interlude worried me afterwards; it was like a popcorn kernel stuck between two back teeth. Eventually, the significance of this exchange dawned on me: Conyers wasn’t laughing with us at all; he was laughing at us.

It was indeed a “grand joke”, but We the People were (and remain) the butt of the joke.

The same playbook was used at the beginning of the Covid saga. In slightly different ways perhaps, in different countries, but the same idea. In the UK “The Coronavirus Act 2020”, and related legislation. Supposedly the former act has now expired, but I have a suspicion the related acts haven’t.

And maybe .00001% of the population would realize what it meant.

What remains to be seen is how successfully TPTB can backtrack all that. For at least a couple generations it was drummed into people’s minds that a college education was crucial to advancement in society.

Now that’s gone belly up: college graduates are now working at McDonalds or Walmart (if they’re lucky).

If people see no contradiction between narrative and the reality right in front of them, then there’s no hope of them ever waking up.

Comment about what we should be doing while you can, because that will end soon. Merck and DARPA have tech that that will silence most of the world in a matter of days while we prattle about firing our politicians. This is just another echo chamber, albeit more palatable. We had our chance in 2020 and we sat home while our ‘leaders’ begged the SCOTUS to save us. We are a sick, obese, befuddled society and the outrage is faux at best in light of the non evidence of any resulting action. Our forefathers starved and suffered to make their ideals become reality. 300+ years later we can’t get our hand out of the bag of Cheetos long enough to shut off the tell-a-vision.

As the text correctly points out, the process of taking away power from people, hijacking the establishment, inverting the purpose of institutions, rigging public systems has been going on for a long time, not to mention that there never existed an ideal state thereof, really.

Now, the gloves are off. The establishment’s puppeteers have stepped it up, whatever the reasons, such as the imminent collapse of the socio-economic model, impending lack of cheap energies, the rise of Asia, and who knows what else.

It’s patently obvious that the so-called democratic world is an empty shell. They’re after us, alright.

In different times, under different circumstances, people might have lashed back out already. Not today, people still have more to lose than to gain. Some maybe believe that we’re having a rough patch. The shit has been foisted on the populace in a salami-slice manner. So on, so forth.

What’s for sure is that it’s not gonna go away. People will have to stand up for their rights and freedoms one way or another. Is asserting our right through the existing mechanisms, like the courts, the way to go? Can the establishment be salvaged? Good question. It’s totally corrupt. Can we do it outside the establishment? How?

The Constitution was written in Philadelphia “the city of brotherly love” by rich slavers, slave “owners”, overwhelming in their numbers, far above a quorum. The concepts and document was born “neutered”. That was the whole point. In his book “The Counter-Revolution of 1776” the Black historian Gerald Horne digs deep into the suppressed history that the free Blacks and escaped slaves in the colonies fought on the side of the Crown. News travels fast when it’s life and death, and Colony Blacks already knew that Lord Sheridan had ruled in London, 1772, on “Somerset v. Stewart” which opined that he could find no precedent in British law that allowed the retention of a human being as chattel, or private property, thus setting the stage for abolition throughout the UK, with USAmerica as the sole cantankerous holdout, for near a hundred years after its founding. You be the “judge” here: is the document about “freedom” or a gaggle of WASP rich guys “ganging” up and crafting a subtle device to perpetuate a “slave economy’ (as MLK preferred to call it)?

I wouldn’t get too romantic about the US Constitution: it was agreed by 13 states which just happens to be the number of a witches’ coven; it took all of one President for measures like the Sedition Act to be introduced; the great Thomas Jefferson was a massive and early enthusiast for vaccination; federal power was only weakened so it couldn’t threaten the money power or secret societies – once they felt secure it could be marginalised as it has been. .

In the UK, given that Starmer is Blair 2.0 I’m expecting Labour to start advocating for constitutional reform (“after Johnson’s abuses… “). Little of the last batch made much difference – the greatest was probably the FOI Act allowed some Covid information to be prised out of the NHS. What a surprise that Blair considers the FOI Act his biggest mistake.

UK reforms will be designed to stitch the UK back openly into the NWO, not to limit state power.

In USAmerica, there are many good people held hostage by USA INC. (LLP), some even great (not all, American) but the country, the nation itself, was founded and “owned” by pirates.

An ancient carpenter once said, “Build your house upon rock…not sand.”

These pirates’ economic foundations for USA Inc. (LLP) are so much without legitimate foundation (the “free” stolen labor of slaves, the stolen land and rights — or lives, more likely– of native americans, the booty of enslaving drug “opium” wars) that the weak moral foundations of “sand” must constantly be shored up with new illegal stolen booty. That is what holds the country up, atop an abyss of quicksand absent the efforts of its good hostages to alter the foundations,
since most of those are forced to walk the plank (blacklisting, ruined careers or put on hold forever, or often outright drowning in the drink:
unsolved murder or by other names) covert booty: Coronapalooza and the extortion of bankrupted businesses through the covert piracy by “virus” and Ukraine: a Nazi pirate black op using civilians as human shields. Now the big putsch to hold the whole world ‘hostage’ atop the moral quicksand.

US Military Given “Continuity of Government” Standby Orders for COVID-19 Pandemic
March 18, 2020
For the first time in the modern history of the United States, the Department of Defense has been given standby orders to ensure the “continuity of government”, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These extraordinary measures, which include evacuating White House officials to remote quarantined locations, and devolving the nation’s leadership to “second-tier officials”, were originally meant for the aftermath of a nuclear war.
However, according to Newsweek, “Above-Top Secret” contingency plans are now in place, in case the nation’s Constitutional power successors are incapacitated by the pandemic. Standby orders have been issued for a series of plans under the US Northern Command (NORTHCOM), . . . as a homeland defense military authority.
These operations are codenamed OCTAGON, FREEJACK and ZODIAC, said Newsweek, and include CONPLAN 3400 (homeland defense if the US itself is the battlefield), CONPLAN 3500 (defending civil authorities in an emergency), and CONPLAN 3600 (defending the National Capital Region from an attack). Newsweek added that the Defense Secretary, Mark T. Esper, has authorized NORTHCOM to “prepare to deploy” in support of these “potential extraordinary missions”. These include “the possibility of some form of martial law”, where military commanders would be given executive powers across the US until a new civilian leadership would emerge.

The theory goes that Trump invoked Continuity of Government in Jan 2021; that it’s still in operation; and Biden never became president. One of the interesting things about COG is that they’re not required to tell anybody!

https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-911-plan-cheney-rumsfeld-and-the-continuity-of-government/5320879
Almost nothing is known about the content of the plan and the specific effects of its activation. The secrecy in this respect appears grotesque. Even the simple fact of the plan’s implementation on 9/11 was concealed for months. After sporadic hints in the press the Washington Post finally disclosed some details in March 2002. In an article titled “Shadow government is at work in secret” it reported that about 100 high-ranking officials of different departments were working outside Washington as part of the emergency plan since 9/11.

As far as WaPo, like NYT, and now for some *spell” NPR, it is so toxic that any “analysis” that comes out of it is too toxic to handle, let alone digest or key into with any comfort. Just those 3, and only 3 years ago, disappeared the incomparable violinist Bill Preucil in his public music making and the entire future of his career. For a quarter century he had been the concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchesrra (“…highest executant standard of any orchestra”) and suddenly you can’t find a trace of him since, online or anywhere? He has a feisty side, but we never saw him do anything undecorous, au contraire, nothing public ever, so you have to guess there were somehow seriously ruffled feathers among the society crowd there. But suddenly gone, and MIA. Shocking, but nothing surprises, not when CIA/WaPo/NYT/NPR approach their prey with their hydra heads,.

But I have been digging into those 3 for years, fascinated by their unique degree of control, going back to the dawn of CIA, working hand in glove with them always, wnenever there is a psyop or black op (Quiet American film 2002)9 to get the”right” spin, or forcefully spun to the right. (NPR is the new kid on their block, soft Nazisn: National Petroleum Radio).

If Churchill saw Russia as a “mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma” then I must view those 3 champions of “Democracy dies in Darkness” as…

This is recycled déjá vu by NYT.

They are even recycling code names, a sort of false flag plagiarism. but who can sue spymasters? Joe McCarthy went after Cord Meyer of CIA with HUAC, saying he had in younger days commie associations, but Meyer was a protogé of Allen Dulles DCI, then Perp-in-Chief and “Secretary of State for Unfriendly Nations”, so that was just a bridge too far.

Dulles had McCarthy’s plug pulled, permanently. “Tailgunner Joe” found out the hard way who really ran this joint, when putsch came to shove. Not as we have heard, the dénouement of poor Joe set so melodramatically, “…have you no decency sir? At long last, have you no decency?” from their made-for-tv version of the congressional hearings, transmitting nationally Joe’s sad loss of face?

The big change in March 2020 was the shifting of responsibility for COG from DHS/FEMA to NORTHCOM. (See Global Research article for Cheney’s implementation.) This is probably what has got the NYT most concerned.

A week after the November 3rd insurrection, Trump appointed Christopher Miller as acting secretary of defense. If COG had subsequently been invoked, the Biden inauguration would have been no more than a theatrical display, and Miller would still be in change of the US military.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_C._Miller
Christopher Charles Miller (born October 15, 1965) is an American retired United States Army Special Forces colonel who served as acting United States secretary of defense from November 9, 2020, to January 20, 2021.[1] He previously served as Director of the National Counterterrorism Center from August 10 to November 9, 2020. Before his civilian service in the Department of Defense, Miller was a Green Beret, commanding 5th Special Forces Group in Iraq and Afghanistan, and later spent time as a defense contractor.

Miller’s tenure in the Trump administration began as Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, confirmed by voice vote in the United States Senate on August 6, 2020.[2][3][4] President Donald Trump named him acting defense secretary on November 9, 2020, after firing Mark Esper.[5][6][7][8] Miller, who took office soon after Trump’s loss in the 2020 presidential election, was accused of obstructing the transition to Joe Biden’s administration by Biden staff.[9]

Miller was succeeded by then-Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist on January 20, 2021.[13][14]

From Patel Patriot – Devolution Series
Implementing Devolution – Shakeup at the DoD
https://patelpatriot.substack.com/p/an-introduction-to-devolution

In order to pull something off like devolution, you need to have the right people in the right place at the right time. On November 7th, 2020, the Associated Press declared Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election. Two days later, Donald Trump began making unprecedented moves at the DoD. These moves are broken down in detail in Devolution – Part 3. I’m going to lay out the moves and then explain the significance of them at the end of this section.

Christopher C. Miller
On November 9th, 2020, Christopher C. Miller was promoted to Acting Secretary of Defense. As discussed in Part 3 and Devolution – Part 10, Miller has an extensive special operations and irregular warfare background. Here are a few of the many things he specialized in:

– Unconventional Warfare
– Counterinsurgency
– Foreign Internal Defense

Foreign Internal Defense: Activities that are “designed to protect against subversion, lawlessness, insurgency, terrorism, and other threats to their internal security, and stability, and legitimacy.”
Christopher Miller is arguably the best “special operations mind” our country has to offer and exactly who you would need to help implement a continuity of government plan designed to save our country.
On December 18, 2020, after only being in office for 1 month and 9 days, Christopher Miller made an extremely interesting comment to Mike Pence, leaving many curious what he was referring to when he mentioned “the most complex military operations this country has ever conducted.”

During the 12 years of Nazi rule in Germany, Hitler did not create a new constitution or amend the old one. The Weimar constitution was still there, so too the parliament – they were just suspended. Hitler, his policies, total war, genocide were all done via a state of emergency.

In the US, in my state, while the mandates have been rescinded, the Pandemic TM perceived to be over by most, the governor has not relinquished his emergency powers – even while there is no apparent reasonable (or even stated) rationale for him to maintain them.

Same idea could apply to the use of the term conspiracy theorist. This term was first used as a pejorative applied to those questioning the conclusions of the Warren Commission who were perceived by the CIA to be on the left (That was 1967.)

Now the term is applied to those questioning any Mainstream Narrative (from 9-11 to the pseudo-pandemic) as being on the right (whether they actually are or not).

White Hats on Monday sent “a sizable force” to the southern border after confirming reports that many men among a caravan of 12,000 (and growing) would-be illegal immigrants are armed and marching toward Eagle Pass, Texas, just north of the Rio Grande.
A high-ranking source in the White Hat community told Real Raw News on Monday that the U.S. military has drone footage showing “several thousand” asylum-seekers carrying Kalashnikovs. RRN has not reviewed the video, which if accurate directly contradicts how mainstream media have portrayed the army rapidly encroaching toward U.S. soil—the crippled, the disenfranchised, and impoverished parents with starving children in tow. The MSM and its liberal political allies are eager to adopt illegals as potential voters for the equally illegal Biden regime.
