Is this likely to be a headline coming soon to the USA?
Don’t get me wrong. I like Trump and think he has done a phenomenal job so far. If he can keep up the pace of his first month in office for eight years then it will bring prosperity back to Americans for a decade or two longer and push back the coming collapse.
But we live in a different time now than the glory days shown in those black-and-white photos from just after we won WWII. I’ve talked to many of the Boomer generation who remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when the news of the JFK assassination came out. But I have not yet met a Boomer who was glad JFK was assassinated. Today, how many people in America do you think would be celebrating in the streets if Trump was assassinated? And when you look at the whole “NeverTrump” crowd on the Republican, conservative, and evangelical end, I don’t think the celebrating would be solely leftist.
Framing The Argument
I’m not going to look into a crystal ball and pretend to tell exactly how and why this will come to pass and who will be responsible. Rather, there are only a few questions that must be answered and upon those answers we can decide, “Does it seem more likely than not that Trump will be assassinated prior to serving eight years as president?” The follow-up is, “What would happen after that?”. The answer is spine chilling and will bring you back to that gut wrenching feeling you had when Obama was elected in 2008 or re-elected in 2012. Remember that feeling of impending doom? Feeling like you were out of position? After reading this in depth article you’ll understand that now is the time to continue your preps in earnest!
The questions we must answer are as follows:
- Does an “establishment” group exist; a group interested in preserving the bureaucratic system as is; a group of elites we might call the political class or ruling class or bi-factional party?
- Does this establishment have something to gain from a collapse or a fundamental transformation of America?
- Does Trump’s populist nationalism that propelled him to victory oppose the gain of these elites?
- If the choice is put to Trump, is he more likely to change and play along with establishment agenda, or continue to be a rebel and a thorn in their side?
- If the answer to the first three are all “Yes,” and the fourth is that Trump will not change and play along, then is assassination the option of choice for elites to remove him?
- If Trump were assassinated, would it lead to civil war?
- In the chaotic time of Civil War II, would foreign powers take advantage and invade the US?
Also, prior to working through this logical chain I need to address a question at the front of many people’s minds, “Is this just a bunch of wacko conspiracy theory lunacy?”, or is this 1963 all over again?
Part I: A Brief History of Conspiracy Theory
First, “conspiracy” is a solid and extremely common legal concept. Think of any time you’ve heard about someone being charged with “Conspiracy to commit [certain crime].” At the base definition, it is simply any secret coordination of multiple parties to bring a certain outcome which would be undesirable to others if they knew about it.
Second, the smearing of theories about conspiracies occurring in the echelons of power and government was specifically a CIA counter-intelligence and disinformation method coined in 1967 and verified in the NYT in 1976 via an FOIA request. Full details can be read here, including a scan of the original CIA intelligence strategy document. Here’s the key summary of the psychological warfare tactics recommended by the CIA dispatch to help fight leaks:
- Claim that it would be impossible for so many people to keep quiet about such a big conspiracy
- Have people friendly to the CIA attack the claims, and point back to “official” reports
- Claim that eyewitness testimony is unreliable
- Claim that this is all old news, as “no significant new evidence has emerged”
- Ignore conspiracy claims unless discussion about them is already too active
- Claim that it’s irresponsible to speculate
- Accuse theorists of being wedded to and infatuated with their theories
- Accuse theorists of being politically motivated
- Accuse theorists of having financial interests in promoting conspiracy theories
In other words, the CIA’s clandestine services unit created the arguments for attacking conspiracy theories as unreliable in the 1960s as part of its psychological warfare operations.
Claim # 2 above has been used extensively to counter the 911 Truth Movement most notably framed in scientific testing and reported by AE911Truth, made up of thousands of Architects and Engineers across the world that agree that the Towers were downed by internal explosives positioned by others unknown as of yet.
It’s amazing how much we see this in use today to defend unpopular government actions. I frequently see this problem in many liberal “fact-checking” sites where when politicians stood accused of some nefariousness or wrongdoing; the “fact check” consists of pointing at the official statement released by the accused politician and declaring the matter settled. Did the DOJ under Eric Holder engage in gun-running under Operation Fast and Furious? Well, Eric Holder says they didn’t therefore they didn’t and those are the facts. (Riiiight…)
Third, today there is a long list of confirmed conspiracies which were once denounced as “unbelievable conspiracy theories.” For me, one of the most shocking recent revelations was that the Lusitania was in fact carrying munitions and the German submarine was justified in sinking her.
[Quick review for the history impaired: Prior to the US entering WWI, a passenger cruise liner named the Lusitania departed NY, headed for Liverpool, and was sunk off the coast of Ireland by a German submarine for supposedly carrying munitions to Germany’s enemies in the war. The British government denied that any munitions were aboard and moral outrage over the evil German sinking of the innocent passenger ship spiked enlistments in Ireland and Britain and helped move the US to enter the war. Documents declassified 30 years after the fact revealed that in 1982 the British government stepped in during a series of planned dives to explore the wreckage because it did in fact carry A LOT of munitions still posing a severe safety risk to exploration. So, Germany was justified in the sinking, and for almost a century anyone who suspected the British government was lying just to trick the US into joining the war was smeared as a conspiracy theorist. The “conspiracy theorists” were right and the official story recorded in history books was a lie.]
For more on conspiracy theories proven right or confirmed as true, here’s a list of 33 drawn up by Info Wars in 2010, and another list of 10 written in 2014 (slight overlap). Some of the more surprising items on the lists:
- North Vietnam did NOT actually attack US Naval warships in the Gulf of Tonkin, providing the basis for the US to enter the Vietnam War.
- The US military DID in fact conduct medical experiments on black service members during the Tuskegee Syphilis Study
- For Operation Northwoods, the CIA had planned to stage phony terrorist operations in the US to frame Cuba and draw the US into war and the plan was supported by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. (Sound a little like 9-11?) JFK rejected the plan and denied promotion to its author, and was assassinated not too long thereafter.
- Speaking of JFK, were you aware there was a 2nd congressional investigation running from 1976 to 1979, which concluded that contrary to the earlier Warren Commission findings, there was definitely a conspiracy involved? Unfortunately, the who, what, why, and how remains unknown today.
- Confirmed: the US Government began spying on Americans prior to 9/11; the Patriot act (already written years before!) simply made legal what had already been illegally going on. Connected, the decision to attack Iraq predated 9/11; the 9/11 attack simply gave justification for the desired war.
- During US Senate hearings by the Church Committee in 1975 on illegal CIA assassination activities, the CIA revealed a “heart attack gun” which shot a tiny dart loaded with shellfish toxin, leaving a mark no more noticeable than a mosquito bite after the dart dissolved. If that’s the tech from 1975, what have they put into operation since then? (The Vault 7 leaks show work on hacking car control systems for modern undetectable assassinations).
- David Rockefeller proudly admitted his role in pushing for a “New World Order” with one world government and the work done to bring it about via the Council on Foreign Relations over the course of most of the 20th century.
Altogether: first conspiracy is a sound and widely prevalent legal concept with frequent convictions. Second, in 1967 the CIA formalized counterintelligence propaganda methods to smear departures from the official story as baseless conspiracy theory. Third, there is a long list of supposedly baseless “conspiracy theories” deviating from the official story – theories which history has eventually confirmed as correct.
Conspiracy doesn’t necessarily mean there is a single shadowy organization calling the shots around the globe through most of history. But if one group wants to bring down America for religious reasons, another for financial benefit, another for social reasons, and another for military reasons, they may all be acting independently. Or some may be working together under the principle that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Is there a conspiracy to assassinate Trump? If there exist at least two members of government or its agencies plotting to do it and make sure the “official story” covers up the truth, then the answer is yes. I’m sure with all the Obama holdovers, one-world-government supporters, and bureaucrats wanting to protect their piece of the red tape jobs from Trump’s axe, we can surely find two such people. Until and unless they succeed, it is only politics as usual.
