Mayor Pete: The CIA’s Choice for President

It should be obvious by now, even for the semi-attentive, that USG elections are fixed. This arrangement failed stupendously in 2016 and the establishment has spent the last three years trying to unseat an elected president they revile and want to be removed from office, even if the interloper must be assassinated. Now that the dysfunctional efforts by Democrats to remove Trump by way of impeachment have failed, the president may indeed have an unfortunate accident or be offed by a “lone wolf” patsy if it looks like he will be reelected. 

The establishment desperately needs to insert one of its own into the White House. The Iowa Caucus, despite its hilarious malfunction blamed on a smartphone app, hoisted Mayor Pete Buttigieg to the top of the heap, although we know many ground-level Democrats prefer the socialist Bernie Sanders. 

As The Grayzone documents, Mayor Pete appears to be a CIA asset. He worked with the agency in Afghanistan and the national security folks endorse his campaign. 

In addition to assisting the illegal occupation and murder of tens of thousands in Afghanistan, CIA Pete teamed up with the DEA, the federal agency responsible for untold misery and murder in its failed war on (some) drugs.  

There DEA has not stopped the record flow of heroin produced from Afghan opium into the United States. During the bankster engineered “subprime crisis,” illegal drugs floated the banks. This was pointed out by none other than Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, more than a decade ago. 

“In 2004,  the proceeds of the Afghan heroin trade yielded an estimated global revenue of the order of 90 billion dollars. This estimate was based on retail sales corresponding to a total supply of the order of 340,000 kg of pure heroin (corresponding to Afghanistan’s 3400 tons of opium production).” Michel Chossudovsky wrote in 2005. 

The Taliban—created whole fabric by Pakistani and USG intelligence—is routinely blamed by the propaganda media as the source of the world’s illicit heroin supply. Left out of this wild distortion of reality is the fact the Taliban worked with the United Nations to eradicate the cultivation of opium. The Bush neocon invasion reversed this trend. 

The Afghan government’s drug eradication program was repealed.  The 2001 war on Afghanistan served to restore as well as boost the multibillion dollar drug trade. It has also contributed to the surge in heroin addiction in the US.

Opium production had declined by more than 90 per cent in 2001 as a result of the Taliban government’s drug eradication program.

Immediately following the invasion (October 7, 2001) and the occupation of Afghanistan by US-NATO troops, the production of opium regained its historical levels.

Mayor CIA, if the following tweet can be believed, has an interest in Afghanistan’s wealth of natural resources, the sort of minerals the neoliberals are addicted to stealing, never mind the staggering cost in human life. 

I have long argued the CIA is by far the most subversive force at work in the USG and around the world. It has performed as a hitman and violent regime change facilitator for the national security state beginning with the presidency of Harry Truman. It captured the major news media in the 1950s—the “Mighty Wurlitzer” of propaganda—and influences Hollywood media productions and video games, thus thoroughly brainwashing the public with lies and disinformation (nobody beats the CIA at “fake news”). 

The CIA vets governors and other politicians. This was substantiated by the former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, who was visited by CIA spooks shortly after taking office. “On occasion CIA officers meet with senior state government officials, as they did in this case, to discuss issues of mutual interest,” admitted CIA Spokesman George Little in 2008. 

More accurately, no doubt, such visits—in this case by nearly two dozen agents—are designed to scare the hell out popularly elected politicians not vetted by the elite. 

Mayor Pete the former CIA operative is a near-perfect candidate (although I am betting the full weight of DNC will fall behind the control freak billionaire Michael Bloomberg or a late entry Hillary Clinton). Pete is said to be a homosexual. He fully endorses the identity politics agenda, and he has stated repeatedly he will steal the firearms of law-abiding Americans, although he cannot beat Bloomberg on this count (former Mayor Mike also wants to dictate what you can eat and drink). 

The CIA, of course, is not liberal, or conservative for that matter. It covertly supports whatever political ideology it believes will effectively bamboozle politically naive Americans. Identity politics fits the ticket. 

 Philip II of Macedon and later Niccolò Machiavelli understood the most effective way to undercut the threat posed by political opposition is divide and rule (divide et impera). This is precisely what we are now enduring—a wholly artificial war between statist factions that is rending the political and social fabric of America and distracting it from real issues. 

The national security state and its master of subversion, lies, and murder must recapture the White House and Congress—sweeping away the unacceptable on both the right and left—and although Mayor CIA probably will not be nominated, a similar person will be selected and appointed. Bernie Sanders will be cheated out of the nomination for a second time and Elizabeth Warren’s promise to address crony corporate influence in government will be paved over with the insipidity of identity politics that completely ignores the locus of our rapidly approaching serfdom–the financial elite. 

Meanwhile, the wars, wholesale theft of natural resources, and mass murder will continue.

The Circus Comes to Iowa

Trump will be re-elected. 

The Dem circus rolled into Iowa with an app to tabulate caucus results. It failed, miserably, and by the time I read the news this morning, there were zero results. I had a good chuckle over that one, especially after discovering the app was developed by an Obama lickspittle. 

But what’s really amusing is the response by the propaganda media. After results finally did trickle in later in the day, it was determined Joe Biden was left in the dust and this upset the overpaid teleprompter readers who, of course, are expected to cheerlead the establishment favorite. 

Yes, Todd, it is “catastrophic” for you, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of the establishment parasites who tell us ad nauseam they’re “public servants,” when it fact they’re self-seeking sociopaths selected to service the financial elite while peddling a raft of lies and blue sky bullshit nobody believes anymore. 

But not to worry. Establishment Democrats managed to push Mayor Pete, now known as Mayor Cheat (for declaring his victory prior to the arrival of fiddled results), up above Bernie Sanders. 

That’s right. Democrats out here in flyover country want Bernie Sanders because he’s not an establishment Democrat.

Citizen Democrats want Bernie the same way citizen Republicans wanted and got Trump in 2016. Flyover Democrats and Republicans, generally ignored until elections roll around, want change—not Obama fake establishment change but real change, the sort of change the elite will never allow, not without bloodletting. 

It’s too bad. They will not get real, honest change—not without a revolution. 

I’m not sure Hillary Incorporated will be able to sideline Sanders like it did in 2016. People are warning up to his fantasy socialism and basket of free stuff because—well, because they’ve been ripped off by the financial elite for decades, the middle class is melting, and the USG is lying about economic stats and feeding (through a bankster cartel masquerading as a federal agency) made-up funny money into the Great Corporate Casino and using its artificiality to argue —as the Stable Orange Genius tell us—this is nothing short of the Greatest Economy Ever. 

The problem is most people don’t have a solid grasp of any of this. Millions believe a free stuff economy is actually possible. It’s difficult to blame them. They’ve been ripped off for so long they’ll vote for an avowed Marxist. 

The second sabotage of Bernie by the DNC in favor of Joe Biden—he appears to be suffering from the early stages of senility—will piss off a lot of citizen Democrats. 

Mayor Pete will not remain at the top of the list and like Trump, he’s nowhere near presidential material. Pete’s at the top of the list to block Bernie, but at the end of the day, that dog don’t hunt. The child-sniffer Biden will be hoisted to the top of the corrupt pile of shit known as the DNC. 

And Trump will be re-elected. 

And there will be blood.

Mayor Pete’s Millennial Slavery Program

Slaves for the national security state.

Pete Buttigieg is pushing “A New Call to Service” for millennials. If Pete is elected—he is currently running head-to-head with Warren, Sanders, and Biden—his “call” will become a mandatory form of slavery.  

As should be expected, Buttigieg’s plan is gussied up with identity slash social justice baggage. It hopes to suck in naive millennials with the promise of student loan debt relief. 

From Politico earlier this year. 

Service fellows would be considered for student debt forgiveness, hiring preference and vocational training. The plan also calls for developing new types of service corps like a Climate Corps, a Community Health Corps, or a Intergenerational Service Corps. All of them would operate under the leadership of a chief service officer, who would serve on the Domestic Policy Council and the National Security Council.

Slaves for the national security state. This is hardly a new concept. Between World War 2 and the Vietnam War, millions of young Americans were drafted and tens of thousands killed. This form of indentured servitude to the state was shelved after college students and other young people went into the streets, burned draft cards, and immigrated to Canada. 

If this proposal becomes reality, bone spurs of the rich may not be an excuse to avoid a government mandated “call to service.” Of course, the mega-wealthy always find ways to protect their children from the meat grinder of the state. 

Mayor Pete is vague on specifics. Nick Gillespie writes:

Buttigieg was emphatic that he’s not talking about forcing people to serve only in the military. Again, there were no details, but his national service plan would include having 18-year-old kids sign up for the armed forces or for a wide variety of other public-sector jobs. National service, he avers, is “one of those ideas that’s always popular but never urgent.” That’s true, regardless of political persuasion. Democrats such as former New Jersey Sen. Bill Bradley was also yammering on about it and the conservative Republican William F. Buckley, Jr. wrote a 1990 book, Gratitude, touting the idea.

Indeed, forcing the commoners to fight the Empire’s forever wars or sweeping streets and polishing national monuments (which, of course, will not be Confederate) is supported by both sides of the corporate political class. Sociopaths in statehouses and Congress have no problem forcing 18 year old plebs to forfeit a year or more of their lives in service to a government that doesn’t represent them and serves the interests of banks and corporations. 

Gillespie writes Mayor Pete’s mandatory service plan—the only way this will work—is “deeply illiberal” and “profoundly at odds with the American experience.”

That may have been true a couple generations ago, but it certainly doesn’t ring true today. It’s fair to say the vast majority of citizens know little about the “American experience” of the past, and no matter the propaganda, the feel-goods, and other enticements (student loan forgiveness), few will sign up. It will take the threat of prison and fines to motivate basement-dwelling millennials to become indentured servants.

Mayor Pete knows this. He’s just not saying.
