The conservative movement in this country has always been plagued by the infiltration of (how can I say this nicely) out and out fakes–people who claimed conservative credentials but were, in reality, on the other side. You can say some of these people were part of the Deep State 40-50 years ago, before we even realized there was such a thing.
Many have noted that William F. Buckley seems to fit into this category. I realize there are some who will contend that Buckley was a sterling conservative, but note with me some information from the John Birch Society bulletin for March of this year. You just may find out some things about Mr. Buckley you were unaware of.
The JBS bulletin notes that: “Perhaps the worst indictment of Buckley is that he was a member of the secret society located at Yale University, Skull and Bones. The history of this organization’s members is globalist at best, and in many instances they have openly abetted totalitarians. According to some, Skull and Bones had ties to the Illuminati…” Both Bush 1 and Bush 2 as well as John Kerry were members. Years ago I picked up a book written by Antony Sutton called America’s Secret Establishment–An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones printed by Liberty House Press in Billings, Montana. I don’t even know if it’s still available or not but you can check Amazon or other sources to see. Mr. Sutton was quite a historian and he studied Skull and Bones all the way back to its origins.
The JBS bulletin observes that: “Few knew of Buckley’s membership and cooperation with fellow Skull and Bones members. Neither then nor now has it been well known that Buckley was a CIA operative…Today more people are beginning to understand that our intelligence community has a lot to answer for. The intelligence community has not become involved in the Deep State; the Deep State was inside the intelligence community from the beginning. Allen Dulles was the first director of the CIA. He and his brother, John Foster Dulles, were members of the Council on Foreign Relations from the beginning. They were very much involved in implanting socialism in the established churches of America and also very instrumental in planting the idea that treaties supersede the Constitution, an idea that prior to World War 1 was never seriously entertained. More than one defector from the Soviet bloc of countries stated that some CIA personnel were part of the communist apparatus here in the United States. On one occasion, a defector said that his debriefing officer for the CIA was a man he handled as a subordinate in the Soviet spy apparatus.”
Kind of makes you wonder, doesn’t it? I hope I’m wrong, but I have a hunch that Donald Trump doesn’t have a clue as to how deeply imbedded the Deep State really is in this country, nor, if he is not a historian, or at least a voracious reader, does he have a clue as to how long it has really been here. Although some might disagree, I would be willing to wager that the Deep State, in some form, goes all the way back to before the War of Northern Aggression.
The very fact that “reconstruction” never really ended, but rather has been continually updated since the end of that War would tend to support this idea. Just a little something for you all to reflect on–past and present.
Thanks to what you have written, as well as those books I’ve been inspired to read as a result of your writings, I have to say that I truly believe that the Deep State IS the Federal government of what I call the United State. Yes, it had many forms in the past, but what began in the 1860s is still with us today. It is diabolical in all its manifestations.
You’ll get no argument from me there.
