They are all part of a real clever psy-op that is going to fool 99% of the sheeple.
This operation has been going on for some time, almost 4 years by my reckoning. From the beginning, I was suspicious that Wikileaks and the whole Ed Snowden thing was a setup. While I am thankful that the average American now realizes that the surveillance state is recording all emails, phone conversations, bank transactions etc into huge metadata facilities, which I have suspected since the 1970's, I also see the down side to all this. Since the plans of the deep state started to be exposed after 911, the conspirators knew they had to come up with a plan to funnel the data into a form they could control. If you want to understand the "deep state", just study the history of the Italian Mafia and the Black Nobility, and all the pieces fall into place. So, let's construct the chronology...
The first is the rise of Alex Jones. When Jones started talking about the chemtrails and GMO foods in 2012, why didn't he get whacked? After all, the deep state has a trail of bodies stretching all the way back to Oswald and Forrestal and Yamamoto, plus dozens they have silenced with very real and very doable threats. Then, Jones has people like Quayle and etc who has everybody talking about Nazis and UFO's and etc. That is one psyop to distract the sheeple. Then of course we had the Ron Paul distraction. That was a trial run- a beta test, if you will, because the deep state always runs beta tests to hone their operations- for the Trump operation.
Meanwhile, legitimate researchers like Jim Willie and SGT were unravelling the Bush-Clinton drug-money laundering cartel. So the conspirators had to kick things into overdrive. That started with the Podesta Emails, which damaged Clinton beyond repair. Now, you would think Clinton would be smart and just go away. But then, you have George Webb doing this series on Eric Bravermann, and one must wonder why he didn't get whacked straight away. And as we go into summer, this stuff just keeps running, and the result is the sheeple are getting confused, while the liberals are getting desperate and circling the wagons...
As the summer progresses, look for more damning evidence against the Clintons, the Bushes, and their cronies to hit the alternate media. The deep state has the alternative media chasing these bones, and will have them exactly where they want them- in the back of the paddy wagon- when the curtain falls.
Meanwhile, the other sheeple are watching Trump and his military manoeuvers, and worried about the outbreak of WW3. (And of course you still have a certain percentage who are convinced that Trump is not part of the deep state.)
But another trend is also manifest. While everybody is fixated on Bitcoin, the bigger story is the block-chain technology. People are discovering that this is a relatively secure way to transfer vital information such as property titles, legal documents, and etc. As the technology developes, whole groups of people will become obsolete- banks, licensing places, passports, embassies, etc. This will be a societal shift along the lines of the enclosure movement or the industrial revolution- all other things being equal.
We are at a crossroads- either the deep state completely implodes, or it takes over, and we all become serfs in a pagan state. Indeed these are interesting times.
