33 which case the U.S. and other Western militaries now assume the moral authority to launch cruise missiles or the like. To be successful, these last few examples involve more serious, professional players, such as intelli- gence agencies like the CIA, MI-6 or Mossad, or military branches of governments. And this can explain why these control mechanisms are deployed domestically, as well as internationally. If Mr. Glob- al is to be assured that the U.S. government will deploy its military or other capabilities in a way that benefits him, he must have the appropriate leverage or control. The Clint Eastwood or Matt Damon character who we initially saw turning an asset in Russia to divulge state secrets can just as effectively be deployed on Capitol Hill. They’ll get a congress- person or other government official invited to a posh party. Secretly recorded, that congressperson will be tempted with cocaine and/or an attractive woman or man. Eventually, that temptation may increase, and young adults or children could be proffered for sex. Whatever the weakness, they’ll try to exploit it, just like they would with a foreign target overseas. If your moral compass is strong enough, and you don’t fall for these vices of the flesh, they may tempt you with financial rewards. Invest in this opportunity and you’ll be wealthy, only to find it involved insider trading or collusion with unsavory types that would harm your career if disclosed. Once you have been compromised, Mr. Global can essentially count on you to do his bidding. A benign request might be simply to propose or vote in favor of certain legislation that benefits Mr. Global’s business interests or friends. Perhaps you might be asked to support government intervention in a foreign country in which Mr. Global has, or wishes to have, increased business dealings, or you might be encouraged to issue a lucrative government contract that will benefit Mr. Global or his friends. Until the system collapses under its own weight, the government can practically print money at will, so being able to pull the strings of a government official or his department can be quite lucrative for Mr. Global. It may be easy to assume that the CIA is behind all these actions, but it is more complicated than that. This ultimately brings us back to the question: “Who is ‘they’?” I think the answer is that there is a matrix, or network, of entities all working together toward mutual goals. Wealthy ruling families, with large established corporations and massive intergen- erational wealth, may very likely be involved. To preserve or enhance their wealth and power, they often want to preserve the status quo, and they’ll use their money for lobbying, bribing, blackmailing, or crushing the competition to attain their goals. Sometimes they develop political ambitions and their lineage morphs into political players, too, like the Kennedy’s, the Bushes, and the Rockefellers. (After all, why be content to only blackmail politi- cal figures to do your bidding, when you can place your own flesh and blood into the office you wish to control.) And, once again, as exemplified by the Bushes we have, not only the crossover between wealthy families and political positions, but also to intelligence agencies. And the real elbow grease gets employed in this equation when the intelligence agencies are in- volved. The NSA can eavesdrop on just about anyone today. The CIA can assassinate and black- mail at will. And who knows how many false flag or domestic terror events’ elements of the FBI have played some involvement in. And all of them can tap untold amounts of money via the government spigot, provided the right bureaucrats approve the funding. And whatever the government agencies can’t do, there’s organized crime to backfill. We’ve covered the ‘who.’ We have an understand- ing of their targets (which is anyone who can be of any importance or use to “them.”) But, why go to all the trouble to get a congressman on film having sex with a thirteen-year-old? It could be as simple as money. As previously mentioned, the ability to receive no-bid government contracts or to deploy the government’s military might in a country they’re hoping to fleece can lead to great addition- al wealth. This is no small thing, but I think it’s much more than this. We have seen blackmails and cons deployed in the past that are so elabo- rate, and took so many years to deploy, such as 9/11, that I think it is much more than money Mr. Global is looking for. I think it is more than power they want, too, for they already have plenty of that. This is one of the most important unanswered questions before us: Why? Why does Mr. Global want such an extraordinary level of control? The NSA can eavesdrop on just about anyone today. The CIA can assassinate and black- mail at will. And who knows how many false flag or domestic terror events’ elements of the FBI have played some involvement in.
