During the recent U.S. election, Donald Trump stated numerous times he was going to Drain the Swamp. He even had the devoted “Trumpsters” chanting in unison at rallies, “DRAIN THE SWAMP! DRAIN THE SWAMP!” It was sort of catchy, and hey, who wouldn’t want the Swamp drained? Let’s kick out all those corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, criminal banksters and their cronies. Let’s really clean this place up.
But what exactly is “The Swamp” and how can we identify it.
The bad news is that it is ubiquitous and almost defies overt identification. The best we can seem to do is gain indications who might be part of the Swamp, by paying attention to associations and affiliations of individuals in public office.
Anyone who has paid any attention to the issues currently facing the world may have come to the conclusion that we have several imminent calamities awaiting us. Historical world debt levels, potential financial collapse, military tensions on many fronts, including the Middle East, Ukraine, the South China Sea and now, North Korea, endemic political and corporate corruption on a mammoth scale, VIP Global Pedophile networks and blatant propaganda, at least in the Western world. Fake News!! No doubt the reader can add many more issues of perhaps greater concern.
So how exactly does one “Drain a Swamp?” May I humbly suggest that the process of “Swamp Draining” may be akin to the process of “Elephant Eating”. One bite at a time.
Let’s take our first bite!
The Trilateral Commission.
An organisation set up by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzhenski in 1973 to “foster cultural and economic relations between North America, Europe and Japan.”
Sounds pretty good in theory, but the Japanese economy crashed in the 90’s, as their stock market halved, and then halved again dropping from 40,000 to 20,000 and then to 10,000. Same for their property market. Too bad for their pensioners. They never recovered. They struggle on despite their hardships.
Europe is in all sorts of economic trouble and is currently experiencing disastrous immigration issues.
The Germans, French and Swedes have never before seen so many of their female youth raped and assaulted. And they still scratch their heads and wonder why??? Could it be something to do with their immigration policies??? And as for the European Union, if it makes it to Christmas, it’ll be a miracle. Too many politicians,bureaucrats, rules, regulations, unproductive costs.
It’s a mess. I’d heard that in Brussels, there are over 10,000 bureaucrats on higher salaries than the Prime Minister of the U.K. Go figure.
And the Yanks? What can one say.
They’re so broke they have to save up to weigh themselves. And to add insult to injury, they may just be in the process of losing the “exorbitant privilege” of having the World Reserve Currency status. This would be a shock to the average US citizen as they watch the costs of all imported goods skyrocket (which is nearly everything) — especially with nearly 100 million out of work, Government Debt exceeding $20 TRILLION, and the Federal Reserve cranking up interest rates. What could possibly go wrong???
So by any reasonable assessment, the TRILATERAL COMMISSION has been anything but a raging success. Unless of course it was never meant to be successful as to its publicly stated goals.
What if its true goal was to undermine the economic and cultural viability of the Western world in order to hasten the implementation of their wretched “New World Order”? Crazy, I know, but what if there is some element of truth to this ridiculous proposition?
Readers of Gumshoenews would be well aware of the lecture given by Dr.Richard Day in 1969 where he stated “that we have come so far and we cannot be stopped”. He was alluding to how “they” were going to slowly, but surely degrade Western society until a New (Communist) Society could be implemented — with them, and their friends in charge. Bugger the rest of us!!
With all of the above in mind, imagine my surprise (horror) to discover that we have fair dinkum Aussies , right here on our doorstep as members of this insidious organisation. And worse still, they’re currently all under one roof, right in the heart of our capital, Canberra. The Australian National University. More specifically, “The Crawford Institute of Public Policy”. Deftly guiding Australia’s policy over the cliff.
Let’s name them for the record. The Trilateral Commission March 2017 membership for Asia-Pacific is as follows:
Dr (Professor) John Hewson: Economist, Central bankster, think-tanker extraordinaire. (the late Sir Harold Knight, an ex-governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, once told me personally that he thought as an economist, Hewson made a better bag carrier) Member of the Crawford Institute of Public Policy at ANU and a current member of the Rockefeller/Brzhenski Trilateral Commission. A perennial “expert” on all things economic and a Global Warming afficionado.
R.Quentin Grafton: Another economist, Specialising in Water Economics and chairing some United Nations (UNESCO) committee on water, a member of the Crawford Institute for Public Policy at ANU and a current member of The Trilateral Commission. Another Global Warmer.
Allan Gyngell: A member of the Crawford Leadership Forum at ANU and a current member of The Trilateral Commission. He was a Director General of the Office of National Assessments (ONA), affiliated with the Lowy Institute, an adviser to Prime Minister Paul Keating and a recipient of the Order of Australia.
Michael Wesley: Director, Academic Outreach and Research, National Security College, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU and a current member of The Trilateral Commission.
Fine, upstanding members of Australia’s Intelligentsia. Just a small part of The Swamp, but half the problem in draining it is to have an idea where the “Swamp Critters” live.
Marcus Tullius Cicero once stated almost 2000 years ago,
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.
“An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
“For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
It’s a BIG SWAMP!
