Vipers from the pit slither-up to save their empire


Last updated 8/24/2018 at 9:14am

The DOJ’s IG Report, released a few weeks ago, did not mention the place played by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the most powerful special interest group in the country, in their now documented coup to oust President Trump from office. It, with its 5,038 highly influential members, teamed up with the DOJ and FBI and, in fact, the whole intelligence community (CIA NSA, DNI and etc.) in this effort.

Senator Ted Cruz called the CFR “a pit of vipers” and a “pernicious nest of snakes” in the 2016 presidential election. The vipers, slithering–up from the pit to save THEIR empire from Trump, are primarily its members and globalism (world government) is its threatened agenda.

Seemingly the pits of hell opened and out came every viper. No presidential candidate: Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Herbert Hoover or even Barry Goldwater, who last threatened the globalists monopoly on national or international power, put together, could measure up to what the vipers, from both parties, gave and are giving Donald Trump.

This should not surprise our readers as we have covered the CFR in numerous previous columns, as have other non-partisan journalists over the last 100 years. Some may recall Woodrow Wilson as the first U.S. President to speak of their power even before they formally organized as the CFR in 1921. In his book, The New Freedom (1913), he wrote of his experience with this hidden force. “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.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of perpetual war through the “industrial military complex” as he left office. Some say that John F. Kennedy was the first to contend with what we now refer to as globalist. If so, that documentation is locked in CIA files that the intelligence community refuses to declassify—even at the request of President Trump. Certainly, his assassination ended opposition. But in election resistance no one, before Trump, felt “viper power” more than Barry Goldwater.

Hundreds of books and articles have documented this power to the extent that two conclusions cannot be overstated. The CFR is the lead organization in the U.S. promoting globalism, and they control both mainstream political parties, Democrat and Republican and have done so for most of 100 years. “The New American” identifies their members as having held, through May 2017, “24 secretaries of state, 20 national security advisors, 20 secretaries of defense, 22 secretaries of the treasury – and thousands of additional Cabinet secretaries, undersecretaries, deputy secretaries, assistant secretaries, etc.” Moreover, the CFR has provided the last 14 CIA directors as well (Deep State & Fake News, May 8, 2017).

They were the government of the United States until President Donald J. Trump; hence all vipers are committed to remove him by any means. This is total war! The most powerful special interest group in US History has teamed with the Deep State – all 16 agencies – to create the Russian Collusion Story with no “real” documentation to drive one man, President Trump, out of office.

Why are so many Americans, perhaps half, still so ignorant of CFR control? They do not read or watch news outside the Establishment Press and the darker the story becomes it is increasingly difficult to believe and to get non-controlled information. They would have to admit that they were duped by some of their favorite politicians and reporters.

Enter the CFR again. The Establishment press is their press. The CFR admits in their 2016 annual report that “334 of its 5,038 members are listed as employed in ‘Media and News Services.’” The siren call for what they want, or do not want, is a deafening chorus. Consider the following favorite CFR household reporters, or anchors: “Peter Bergen (CNN), Erin Burnett (CNN), Tom Brokaw (NBC), Ethan Bronner (New York Times) Juju Chang (ABC), Katie Couric (CBS, NBC), Thomas Friedman (New York Times), Charles Krauthammer [recently deceased] (Washington Post, Fox), Paul Krugman (New York Times), Jim Lehrer (PBS), Bill Moyers (PBS, CBS), Heather Nauert (Fox), Kitty Pilgrim (CNN), Dan Rather (CBS), Charlie Rose (PBS, CBS), Diane Sawyer (ABC), Andrew Ross Sorkin (New York Times), Lesley Stahl (CBS), Barbara Walters (ABC), and Paula Zahn (Fox, CNN),” to name but a few (Ibid).

The CFR corporate media conglomerate includes influential members in the following internet outlets: Twitter, Facebook and Google, as well as televised news MSNBC CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC. Newsweek and Time are their magazines and their newspapers, The New York Times and Washington Post, from which hundreds of outlets copy or paraphrase CFR messaging.

Senator Chuck Schumer apparently knows something about taking on the CFR Deep State and its media outlets when he called Trump dumb for doing so. He said, “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he is being really dumb to do this.” (Ibid.). Many believe Trump a patriot instead.
