• If you told somebody ten years ago that there existed some sort of secret group or “secret government” pulling the strings behind the scenes of government policy, international law, various global rules/regulations, and more, they would have called you a “conspiracy theorist.” Today things have changed, largely as a result of information leaked by Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and various other whistleblowers and activists in recent years. Their bravery has shed light on the world of secrecy that’s been blinding the masses since its inception. Here are some historic political leaders who have attempted to reveal the existence of a secret ‘shadow government’ to the people.

• Paul Hellyer – In September 2005, former Canadian Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, became the first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally that “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.” Hellyer also pointed out that while the U.S. was waging monstrously expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of billions of dollars were spent on projects about which both the Congress and the President have been kept deliberately in the dark.

• Woodrow Wilson – The 28th president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson once stated, “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

• John F. Kennedy – The 35th President of the United States, JFK warned that “there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. …[W]e are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.

• John C. Calhoun – The 7th Vice President of the United States, from 1825-1832, John C. Calhoun said, “A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.”

• John F. Hylan – John Hylan, the Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925, said “The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation … The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.

• William Jenner – In 1954, US Senator William Jenner said to Congress, “We have a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state … It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government … This ruthless power-seeking elite is a disease of our century… This group … is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts. It is practically irremovable.

• Daniel K. Inouye – The highest ranking Asian-American politician in US history, serving from 1963 until his death in 2012, Senator Daniel Inouye stated, “There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”

• Dwight D. Eisenhower – In his farewell address to the nation, the 34th President Dwight Eisenhower offered these words of caution, “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. … Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defence with our peaceful message and goals.

• Theodore Roosevelt – The 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt warned, “[I]nstruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialing to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility.

This is an article that originated from Collective Evolution in 2015. We are reposting it now to bring awareness to the ‘Deep State‘ that currently controls global politics and major institutions and has, for a long time.

At the end of the day, WE (humanity) make the ultimate decisions as to what direction we want to take our planet. The moment we choose, we can change the human experience at any given time.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

If you told somebody 10 years ago that there existed some sort of secret group or “secret government” pulling the strings behind the scenes of government policy, international law, various global rules/regulations, and more, they would have called you a “conspiracy theorist.” Today things have changed, largely as a result of information leaked by Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and various other whistleblowers and activists in recent years. Their bravery has shed light on the world of secrecy that’s been blinding the masses since its inception.

I’ve mentioned this before, and I’ll mention it again, did you know that the U.S. Government classifies more than 500 million pages of documents each year? Did you know that the United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret? For example, the National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, it was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. Then we have the entire black budget world, a world dominated by secrecy that was officially revealed by Edward Snowden a couple of years ago. This deals with what are known as “Special Access Programs.”

It’s not just statements that these “high-level” people are making. It’s all of the proof and evidence that goes along with it.

Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer
Former Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, is one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. He was first elected in 1949, and was the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S. St. Laurent’s government eight years later. He held senior posts in the governments of Lester B. Pearson and Pierre E. Trudeau. He achieved the rank of senior master (Deputy Prime Minister), and went on to become the Canadian Defence Minister. He is best known for the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces, and in September 2005 he became the first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally that “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.”

Here’s what he had to say about the world of secrecy:
It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction, when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard. It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy, when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects about which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.

The 28th U.S. President Woodrow Wilson
Woodrow Wilson, an American academic, politician, and the 28th president of the United States, had this to say (among other things) in his book The New Freedom. The book also contains several other, similarly eye-opening statements:
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

The 35th U.S. President John F. Kennedy
Here’s what JFK had to say in one of his most famous speeches:
The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. … For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.

• The Global Elite will stop at nothing to impose their vision of a New World Order.

• Russian President Putin said “the oligarchic ‘one percent’ that dominates our world have given over entirely to greed.

• One of the Global Elite’s tactics is to create justification for war in order to keep the military industrial complex running.

• As a result American citizens continually lose their basic rights.

• Whistleblowers reveal classified information, create more transparency, and reveal the true intentions for secrecy under “national security,” a term used to conceal vast amounts of information.

• The eleven whistleblowers mentioned are: 1. Edward Snowden 2. Sibel Edmonds 3. Thomas Drake 4. William Binney 5. Robert David Steele 6. Chelsea Manning 7. Dr. Udo Ulfkotte 8. Jeffrey S. Wigand 9. Dr. William Thompson 10 Dr. Johan Brandenburg 11. Dr. Norman Bergrun

 

The “New World Order,” a term that’s been referenced a number of times by various academics, politicians, and more over the years, has definitely gained more attention recently. Why? Because it refers to the desire of the global elite to enforce their vision of what the world should look like, basically imposing their ways and beliefs of “globalization” on the world’s populace. They employ various tactics to make this happen. Whether it be the infiltration of another country’s political system via Western intelligence agencies, manufacturing the consent of their own people through false flag terrorism, or simply flat out lying about global events, the New World Order agenda continues to move forward.

This has become such a major issue that the Perdana Global Peace Foundation organized and sponsored a conference about it, the International Conference on the New World Order.

At the 13th annual meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club, whose theme this year was “The Future in Progress: Shaping the World of Tomorrow,” Russian President Vladimir Putin began his speech by arguing that the oligarchic ‘1 percent’ that dominates our world have given over entirely to greed:

They essentially abandoned substantive and equal dialogue with other actors in international life, chose not to improve or create universal institutions, and attempted instead to bring the entire world under the spread of their own organisations, norms and rules. They chose the road of globalisation and security for their own beloved selves, for the select few, and not for all. But far from everyone was ready to agree with this.
Iraq, Syra, and Libya were all ravaged in the name of greed, and their invasions were based on lies, as four star General Wesley Clark also made quite clear.

So, where do whistleblowers come in? Well, the New World Order has many aspects, and they use many tactics to achieve their goal. This includes, as Putin put it, creating “imaginary and mythical” threats to justify their actions. One of their biggest tactics is to keep the entire military industrial complex running, to create justification for war and invasion/infiltration, and to heighten the global national security state. As a result of the heightened natural security state, citizens at home in America continually lose their basic rights, in many different forms.

When whistleblowers reveal classified information, it creates more transparency, and reveals the true intentions for secrecy under the justification of “national security,” a term that’s basically used now to conceal vast amounts of information.

• a pair of CIA internal memos from 1984 and 1991, recently exposed by Edward Snowden, show how the agency planned and implemented a heightened infiltration of academia, the press, and the entertainment media

• in 1984, CIA heads viewed the press as villains who had been corrupted by their “absolute power”, and regarded them as a hostile intelligence service

• in response, the CIA pursued centralized control of the press, to deceive and push their own agenda

• by 1991, the CIA had developed relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation, often persuading them to postpone, change, hold or even scrap news stories

• the CIA uses the vast entertainment industry as a distraction

• the U.S. government annually classifies an estimated half a billion documents

[Editor’s Note]  this is an example of how the intelligence community and the Deep State manipulate virtually every segment of society in order to hide government projects such as the Secret Space Program from the people

 

In this case, it’s the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the document in question, written up in 1984, shows how the agency had definite plans to infiltrate academia and change/influence the curriculum, specifically journalism.

As Emma Best from Muckrock reports, recently Tweeted by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, memos from the CIA Inspector General’s (IG) office reveal the agencies perspective on the press and how to handle them. It’s from 1984, approximately three decades prior to when the Agency declared Wikileaks a hostile non-state intelligence service. It shows how the CIA viewed the media the same way.

Are organizations like Wikileaks really a threat to National Security? Or are they simply a threat to a small group of powerful people who make millions, billions, or even trillions of dollars via government secrecy? Are they a threat to the global national security agenda that is taking place, disguised under the guise of globalisation? Was president Vladimir Putin right when he said “imaginary” and “mythical” threats are being used to impose the Deep State’s way on the entire world? Perhaps truth and transparency are a threat yes, but not to national security. If we continue to ignore these questions, the national security state will continue to be heightened, one in which our rights are constantly violated, with our right to privacy being one of many great examples.
