Michael, great analysis. However, I think you give the deep state short shrift. There exists a huge very powerful, very secret unacknowledged corporate/military coalition which has tentacles in all critical areas of the government that might control it. This element is a mafia, a cartel that is based on the secret intelligence agencies of the government and deeply tied into banking and financial areas. It controls by generating fear and it uses assassination to back up that fear. Do you know what an Unacknowledged Special Access Program is?
