The growing wealth of the country…is mainly concentrated in a few hands, and the number of very rich men is becoming larger. The tendency of wealth to get into fewer hands is becoming more marked.

Theodore Roosevelt, 1901 (First Annual Message)

It’s not just in New Zealand but also the so-called civilised, historically linked countries of the Western Hemisphere: the completely undeserving trust we place in our politicians to ‘do the right thing’ by its citizens.

That we have finally arrived at a situation where the people we employ to serve us, the general public, have turned the relationship around and now order us around as though we are THEIR employees is frightening in its implications.

And it’s not just the government arbitrarily closing the country down on a whim. Who believes that mass immigration is out of compassion for helpless refugees, or to the economic benefit of our country, or that Covid lockdowns were anything more than a confidence trick or that their climate-change/net-zero garbage has any truth in it? It’s also the many outright lies that we’re being force fed and required to accept under the penalty of a threatening visit from the police. Lies like if a man declares himself to be a woman then that’s what he is, and that we must accept him using the toilets formerly reserved for young girls, competing in girls’ sports, to enter any facility that was once the sole preserve of women and to threateningly leer at and ogle them, even children, with them having no ability to complain.

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

The problem goes far deeper than our political system which allows the election of psychopaths and which was corrupted even further by the introduction of proportional representation in New Zealand which gives the selection of the – necessarily shallow, obedient to authority, unthinking and vain – potential members of parliament entirely over to utterly corrupted political parties that completely dominate them.

Laying the Foundations

Prior to 1940 the US State Department, the FBI and the different branches of the military all had their own security and counterintelligence operations and did not easily share information with each other. But after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in Hawaii in 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt issued an executive order to set up the forerunner of the CIA, the “Office of Strategic Services”. The OSS was charged with collecting and analysing intelligence and running special operations outside the other branches of the US military, which were under the control of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Modelled on Britain’s MI6, members served bravely during the rest of the war, running spies in occupied Europe. Operatives also carried out soldier rescues, guerilla warfare and sabotage, among other missions. An X-2 branch was formed to specialise in counterintelligence (definition: to deceive the enemy – later to ‘deceive anyone who gets in our way’? – to prevent sabotage and to gather political and military information) that was allowed to operate anywhere overseas, apart from, at that time, in Western Hemisphere countries.

Roosevelt died in April 1945 and his successor, Harry S Truman, dissolved the OSS by executive order later that year after the war ended but its secret intelligence and X-2 branches would become the nucleus of a new peacetime intelligence service, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), created in 1947. This monster, in recent times, in connivance with America’s Democratic Party, sought and achieved, many people believe, having Barack Obama elected president. Then, around 2016 when Obama’s term in office was completed, they, in conjunction with the FBI, hoped to have Hillary Clinton ‘elected’ in his place by attempting to destroy the popular Donald Trump – her political rival – by leaking (forgive the pun) the ‘Pervert Trump pissed on in his Moscow Hotel bed by a prostitute’ lie and many other such stories. The story had been supplied by ‘former’ MI6 agent Christopher Steele and was subsequently declared a fabrication in official reports. These actions seriously undermine, if not destroy, ‘the sovereign will of the people’. After the now widely held belief that the CIA assassinated President Kennedy in 1963, the agency appears to seek the imposition of a series of CIA puppets in The White House as successors to George Bush, president from 1989 to 1993 (and director of Central Intelligence). These behaviors and those mentioned below (and many more), indicate those in the spy business consider themselves to be above the law and thus no longer answerable to the people of the United States. A law unto themselves, apparently, has also been granted the NZSIS. A useful attribute for any outsider surely, who happens to have a politician in his/her pocket and would like a favour?

Democrat Sen Chuck Schumer spoke of in glee, in response to then-president-elect Trump’s criticism of US intelligence agencies. “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community – they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

The Federalist

In the years between its founding in 1947 and the recent exploits discussed above, the CIA, in conjunction with its fellow members of the “Five Eyes” old-pals firm, including New Zealand, has been shamelessly involved in numerous shady dealings abroad and even within its own countries. The interior of the USA is nominally designated as being solely FBI territory, but the CIA is known to operate locally, apparently against its remit, and to covertly practise its ‘termination with extreme prejudice’ method of resolving problems even there. The actual ‘wet work’ is executed not by your average trench-coated spy, but by contracted thugs and hitmen in order to provide a ‘cut out’. These contracted thugs often have extensive police records and may have served time for previous such crimes, but are often ‘let off’ in mysterious circumstances.

The CIA’s shady dealings – some of the few that we are aware of – include:

Overthrowing democratically elected governments: The CIA has been implicated in the overthrow of several democratically elected governments, most notably in Iran (1953) and Guatemala (1954). These actions have been criticised for undermining democracy and destabilising entire regions.

The Iran-Contra Affair: In the 1980s, the CIA was involved in a secret arms-for-hostages deal with Iran, in violation of a congressional ban on such activity. The proceeds from the arms sales were then used to fund the Contra rebels in Nicaragua that were fighting against a leftist government. The CIA has operated in the countries of South America since the end of the second world war and is believed, by many, to have hugely benefitted from the drug trade there and to have used the accumulated funds as an ‘under-government radar’ add-on to their government budget to finance their exploitation activities and to cause mischief and mayhem around the world independent of political oversight. Almost just for the fun and thrill it sometimes seems.

Human rights abuses: The CIA has been accused of human rights abuses, including torture and assassination at “Black sites” around the world. These allegations have come to light after the agency’s interrogation methods were exposed in the aftermath of 9/11.

Domestic spying: The CIA has also been accused of spying on American citizens. These accusations appeared in the wake of the Edward Snowden whistleblower leaks, which revealed the extent of the government’s surveillance programs. As an aside, CIA/NSA (National Security Agency) whistleblower Edward Snowden was a computer intelligence consultant in the employ of Booz Allen Hamilton Inc, an American government and military contractor: the very same Booz Allen Hamilton Inc that wrote the 1984 report that led to the selloff of our government-owned New Zealand Railways.

Iraq War intelligence failures, or deliberate lying to steal a country? The CIA’s intelligence on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program was a key factor in the decision to invade Iraq in 2003. However, no such weapons were ever found and the CIA’s failures were widely criticised.

By a dump of its old records in its online reading room, the CIA was exposed in 2017 as having actively spied on its supposed Five Eyes partner, New Zealand. This country was in a loose intelligence sharing program with America and the UK from the end of WWII, which was formalised and became Echelon in the 1960s, but the existence of this programme was kept under wraps until the 1990s when it was made public to the astonishment of many people.

One of the CIA’s reports back to HQ before the 1984 election in New Zealand included this: “Unable to come up with policies of its own to cure New Zealand’s economic ills, Labour sees political benefit in identifying with a fear of nuclear contamination that is widespread and growing in New Zealand and which spans the political spectrum.” The NZ Labour Party deliberately cultivated for its own advantage the fear of mass deaths in the minds of the public of New Zealand? Now where on earth have I heard/seen that before?

It would be interesting to discover if the NZSIS, which has had a few embarrassing exposures of its activities in the media itself (who can forget the saga of the pork pies and dog-eared copy of Penthouse in a briefcase that was found sitting on a fence in Wellington in 1981?), knew anything of what the CIA was up to in this country and if the CIA still maintains an office in the American Embassy here. (Of course it does – silly question!)

The CIA, FBI, NSA and all the extended paraphernalia of the state security apparatus in the USA is perhaps the largest group of players – malevolent schemers if you like – in what’s known as the “Deep State”. And we of course have a much smaller – though interconnected via Five Eyes – version of the Deep State here, which has had people like Jacinda Ardern and Helen Clark (whose shadow loomed over Ardern in the background like Obama’s does over the floundering Biden), represent them as ‘front persons’, or puppets if you like. As politicians come and go, the nine tenths of the iceberg beneath the surface (the deep state) remains. It knows all their secrets and foibles and predilections and relishes methods used by J Edgar Hoover of the FBI: it keeps that stuff to hand in the event that a little persuasive blackmail might be advisable.

Governments are full of these people – if we could only remove the scales from our eyes and see – who seem to care not so much for the safe and effective managing of their responsibilities for the benefit of their citizenry, but more to suit their own deep, unknowable whims and desires.

Tell me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.

Then, reverting by a paragraph or two, there are the murky goings on that the CIA was involved with that have recently come to light in a Netflix series called American Conspiracy: The Octopus Murders. In the early 1980s an American company developed a piece of software which was essentially a case-management system for federal prosecutors: all crimes could be logged and organised in a central database (instead of being physically filed away in folders) – we’re talking about long before the public gained access to the world-wide web. The software was called PROMIS – the predecessor of PRISM, which is apparently currently in use for the same purpose, developed by Edward Snowden – and its copyright became the subject of a tug of war between the Department of Justice (which ‘owns’ the FBI) and its developer. The software later became of peripheral interest in a huge crooked scheme with many facets called “The Octopus”, which involved several interrelated contract murders in the USA, with the manufacture of firearms and the distribution of drugs with shadowy CIA characters lurking in the background but who no one, not even Netflix’s doco-making sleuths, has been able to directly identify. The whole scam is infinitely complex but what I take from the story is, as an investigating lawman puts it towards the end of the four part series, “There are many people involved in spying organisations who I call ‘web spinners’. They appear to live in a fantasy world of their own creation and to be congenitally incapable of telling the truth.” We could perhaps justifiably apply that phrase to most politicians as well, and to their sycophantic support staff and deep-state ‘civil’ servants too.

The PROMIS software proved to be so useful to the secretive world of state security that it seemingly became a highly valued asset and the CIA gave free copies of it to some of its overseas allies and sold copies to other countries around the world. Around 80 copies in all were so distributed, perhaps including NZ. But, as has since been revealed, a ‘back door’ had been put into the software by the developer in order to allow the CIA discreet access to the recipients/purchasers’ secret information. And being before the internet, internal wiring was apparently used as an antennae so that information could be extracted by direct wireless access. Why wouldn’t that back door eventually be upgraded to become a communications port in those outlying versions of PROMIS in the possession of Five Eyes collaborators, in order to facilitate the pooling of their intelligence in a central CIA server? This would be a useful attribute for avoiding otherwise possible intrusions like telephone tapping, wireless monitoring and email hacking. Not to mention the possibilities for furtively progressing the “Great Reset” agenda advocated for by the World Economic Forum that most modern Western politicians and the Deep State seem to be up for these days.

The Beneficiaries

There are now so many more useful instruments of control available to aspiring tyrants than before. The resources of the internet can weave a useful web of immediately available local and international contacts among the power elites – including high-level politicians, artificial intelligence, access to audio and visual surveillance resources, encrypted email messaging and a complicit media, all of which are there to be taken advantage of in order to wind your fancied achievements up to the max.

The CEOs and billionaire owners of the major banks, the US Federal Reserve and most major corporate entities, back room plotters like supposedly retired multi-billionaire Bill Gates ever seeking to make himself even richer along with divorced wives and widows of billionaires throwing their unearned money around and helping to bring on the ‘brave new world’ – and not forgetting George Soros.

Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.

The late American stand-up comedian George Carlin

We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth… We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion and scorn towards those who disagree with us.

So who do you think the conspirators are now?
