Case for Super-National Conspiracy


The Zurich Institute of Technology published and academic paper demonstrating the structute and control of international business.  According to this research, 147 companies rule them all.  But the real story here is how the 147 companies were identified.  The "Super Entity" was defined as such because the same persons were controlling stock holders in each company. I think having a list of these names would be very enlightening.  CEO's only "represent the interests of the stock holders" and come and go, but these names stay the same.

["all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity"]

The next testimony that intetested me was that of ex-CIA Chief, John Brennan testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on having "intelligence"allegedly  demonstrating Russian interference in the 2016 election but no "evidence" (30:40).  John Brennen, our ex-chief conspiracy theorist, gave one of the best and complete descriptions of state-sponsored international conspiracy and how it operates and interferes with free and independent democratic elections: (50:00, 1:13:40)

HIMES: Mr. Brennan, assuming that you agree with that, how specifically has the Kremlin gone about cultivating relationships with key Americans in an effort to it to influence our policy?

BRENNAN: It is traditional intelligence collection tradecraft in terms of you meant, which is to identify individuals that you think are either very influential or rising stars, and you will try to develop a relationship with them in the Russians frequently will do that through cutouts or through false flag operations. They won't identify themselves as Russians or as members of Russian government. They will try to develop a personal relationship and then over time they will try to get individuals to do things on their behalf.

HIMES: can you tell us a little bit about what the role of Russian oligarchs is in Putin's plan? What levers of influence do they use and -- and -- and why do some Americans fall for contacts with Russian oligarchs and business people.

BRENNAN: Well, Mr. Putin's political standing in Russia is certainly well supported by key oligarchs who control billion-dollar industries and -- and parts of the Russian economy, and he -- I think reliant on them for support -- and they are reliant on him for support.  And so they honestly have a lot of international connections, a lot of business connections that they will use to advance their business interests; but also we see that's Russian intelligence agencies do not hesitate at all to use private companies and Russian persons who are unaffiliated with the Russian government to support their objectives.

HIMES: And so we talked about Americans and Russians, now these couple of minutes, do Americans who are suborn in such a way -- and Russian oligarchs that are recruited or suborn, do they necessarily need to know that they are doing Russia's bidding?

BRENNAN: No, many times they do not. They do not even know that the person that they're acting --interacting with is a Russian. Many time they -- they know that individuals may be Russian officials, but they don't know that there is an intelligence connection or intelligence motive for behind it.

SEWELL: So, Director Brennan, can you talk about -- more about Russia's disinformation campaign and what tools the Russians use to do that?

BRENNAN: They use all sorts of tools. As I've said, they have been able to control various media outlets. Obviously they use RTTV here in the United States, which has a fairly significant audience. They use individuals who have -- who are writers or publishers, editorialists.  Again, some of this is -- is very obvious to those who are involved because they're on the payrolls. I'm talking globally now -- they're on the payrolls of Russian intelligence, and so they place pieces that advance Russia's interests. ...

BRENNAN: I think they're all chronicled in the unclassified intelligence community assessment, in terms of -- it's very clear that the GRU was responsible for hacking into the -- the networks of the DNC, DCCC, and were responsible, through a cutout, releasing it through places like Guccifer 2.0, WikiLeaks and -- and others.  And so they were taking advantage of information that they had collected, that they determined, if it was publicly released, was going to advance their objectives that I had enumerated before.  In addition, they amplified a lot of fake new stories that tried to denigrate Secretary Clinton. So it was a mixture of propaganda, it was cyber collection and it was the release of information that was, again, seen as damaging to -- to one of the candidates that they were trying to -- to harm.

ROS-LEHTINEN: Thank you. Can you provide any examples of past Russian or Soviet active measures, as they're called?

BRENNAN: Well, it runs the gamut from targeted assassinations of dissidents, of members of the media, of the -- inside of Russia, as well as outside of Russia -- to getting people on their payroll in foreign governments to carry out their -- their actions, to the -- their efforts in Ukraine, as not just the military takeover of Crimea, but their basic intervention into eastern Ukraine with their intelligence and paramilitary services, to the active propagation of propaganda and disinformation as they try to besmirch and tarnish individuals, as well as the use of blackmail, Kompromat, that they would be able to then leverage for their own purposes.  So it -- it really does run the gamut from the -- the most heinous and -- and violent to that which is much more subtle and insidious.

So, my question is: knowing the "super entity" exists, could this super-national entity have the motive, organization, power, money, and influence to carry out similar "active measures" that Brennen ascribes to Russia? 

Does this super-national special intetest, which already admittedly wields considerable global financial and economic control, conduct political assassinations, recruit, disseminates disinfomation and propaganda in its own demoralizing media, to ultimately interefere with democratic elections and laws? 

You might then say, if special interests have been in control for 100 years since Teddy Rosevelt, wouldn't the FBI or CIA have investigated and revealed this yet? Not if the FBI and CIA directors, appointed by the POTUS, are also controlled and the individual agents compartmentalized.  Consider how J. Edgar Hoover denied the existence of the mob until the Alapachin Meeting in 1957.
