“Just imagine that William Casey’s dream came true. Suppose the Enterprise grew into a super-secret, self-financing, self-perpetuating organisation.”

                              Bill Moyers,                                                      The Secret Government, 1987  

I have been trying, in my last three posts, to convey two things.  The first (which is actually the theme of the entire blog) is that what we take to be 'objective' reality is in fact a multi-layered tapestry of agreements about the nature of the world, which define us as members of a particular culture, and civilisation. There is nothing solid or permanent about any of this at all. The cause and the consequence of this inescapable state of affairs  - which seeks to dispel our existential condition of perpetual uncertainty - is that we are dependent to an extraordinary degree on those we deem to be our authorities. Our dependence on them is so deep and pervasive that we have little choice but to trust them. The illusion that what they tell us is ‘true’ borders on the all-encompassing, such that even if later presented with evidence by an unauthorised source which flatly disproves their pronouncements, we dismiss the source, and thereby the evidence, in preference for the security blanket of our collective myth. 

Part of the reason for the success of this deception – which is something of a mutual conspiracy - is that it's largely a feel-good message.  It makes us proud to be part of the group. We are invested in it. It defines who we are. If the message is ever bad (as it too often is today) it's because our authorities are warning us of a 'threat' to our well-being, and offering a solution that will make things 'better' (which usually involves the surrender of some of our freedom).  

In contrast to this, those who would seek to undermine our collective myth seldom have a more agreeable message with which to replace it. Myths, after all, are built and sustained by wishes and, well, fabrications*, whereas the truth (not to be confused with a better myth) tends only to destroy myths. A better myth generally means a more agreeable fabrication.  

But the degree of deception has been steadily mounting, and the mutuality is crumbling. So the second thing I've been trying to convey is that, hand in hand with this mounting deception, have come mounting secrecy, and legal and fiscal unaccountability, now reaching trillions of dollars of tax payers' money. Something is clearly amiss.  Thirty years ago public television show host Bill Moyers referred to this as 'the secret government' - a shadowy government-within-the-government.  As that secrecy increased over the years the novelist John Le Carre coined the term 'Deep State' to describe it. More recently still the historian Richard Dolan has created yet another term, 'Breakaway Civilisation' (see this excellent introductory article) to characterise what he warns has now become an entity so secretive and so powerful that it operates on a different technological plane entirely, now wholly unaccountable to the public - the very monster whose looming shadow Moyers warned about thirty years ago. 

You are incredulous, I see. This is sheer paranoia, you exclaim. How could a deception of this magnitude be sustained?   Oh dear!  And we haven't yet even begun to outline the nature of the technology that has spawned this breakaway civilisation, requiring all this pelf and secrecy.  So let's briefly review how that world of secrecy is able to operate, how it has in fact been maintained; because, being invisible, how are we to believe it exists?  

To begin with, like a Black Hole, so vast has it become that its presence can now be inferred by its influence on the bodies around it.  We have, first and foremost, the gargantuan amounts of money being siphoned, unaccounted for, out of the pockets of groaning tax payers.  Added to that are the untold billions in proceeds from the forever-unstoppable-because-CIA-supported drug trade (another on-going deception). Where is all this money going? Then there's the exponential growth in the number of super-secret government agencies and their private, hi-tech sub-contractors.  To do what? On top of that there's the Orwellian surveillance of every digital transmission, everywhere. To reveal, or protect against whom?  And in a supposed democracy, with freedom of speech, the remorseless ridiculing, suppression and sabotage of all challenges to a status quo that insists that there is press freedom; that... but here we enter Woo-Woo Land, because the very things the alternative media are claiming to be true, some of which I've already referred to, the public has been persuaded by its authorities are false and ridiculous. 

So no, we won't go there just yet.  Let's consider first the methods of this secrecy. At its apex are the shadowy Rulers, spurred on, as ever, by the promise of power as yet only dreamed of, together with its commensurate rewards.  Those immediately below them have immense loyalty to the Cause; they are zealots, proud of their favored position as insiders, with far too much to lose from disclosure.  Below them still are the section chiefs and technical experts; and here starts the compartmentalisation; everything is on a military footing, on a strictly need-to-know basis, with level upon level of sophisticated security and surveillance.  Nothing that is not authorised gets in, or out, for it is here that leaks threaten the secrecy structure. These people are not insiders, and though proud of their membership of this or that elite research establishment they are not privy to its deeper secrets, even as they may from time to time of necessity be exposed to them.  Hence all must sign the National Security Act of 1947 (the year of the Roswell incident, btw).  Having supposedly the force of law, this has proved a very powerful muzzling tool of the secret state.  However, whistle blowers are always a threat, especially where rampant illegality is concerned, and if huge payoffs and bribes won't work there are always other means, ranging from blackmail, to threats, to bodily harm, to murder.  This is the dark face of the Deep State that is most difficult for us law abiding citizens to get our heads around, cocooned in comfort as we are.  The secret state is utterly ruthless - as is any government. It will stop at nothing to protect itself. It is, after all, a separate state. 

I wrote in my last post that CIA director William Casey was drowned in the Potomac River.  It was in fact his predecessor in the CIA, William Colby, who met that end, on 27 April, 1996.  My apologies for the error. His death, I now find, may provide the transition I need into the Woo-Woo Land we are about to enter.

It was a Saturday, and Colby, by then 76 years old and some 15 years into retirement, was alone at his weekend house by the Potomac River, 60 miles south of Washington D.C.. He had been working all day on preparing his sailing boat for the coming season.

After he got home from the marina, Colby called his wife, Sally Shelton, a high-ranking State Department official who was in Houston, Texas, visiting her mother. He told her he had worked hard all day and was feeling tired. He said he was going to steam some clams. Take a shower, and go to bed.

Colby made the call at 7 p,m. He was seen a few minutes later by two sets of witnesses in his yard, watering a willow tree. One of the witnesses was his gardener who dropped by to introduce his visiting sister. His two next-door neighbors saw him at the same time from their window.  After he finished watering his trees, he went inside and had dinner.

The witnesses saw him at 7:15 p.m. The sun set at 7:57 p.m. – 45 minutes later.

When he was found dead in the water nine days later, it was said that he had gone out paddling his canoe at nightfall and drowned. 

Excerpted from WHO MURDERED THE CIA CHIEF? William E. Colby: A Highly Suspicious Death.  By Zalin Grant. Pythia Press

The drowning was declared ‘accidental’ by the coroner, but the case, involving as it did an ex-CIA director in very suspicious circumstances, continued to attract attention.  On August 8, 2004, Art Bell conducted an interview with Dr. Steven Greer, a then little-known but well-respected trauma doctor who had for reasons we will reveal in a future post become intent on exposing the Deep State. Part of the interview went as follows –

SG:  Now I want to talk about an assassination tonight that people may not want to hear... I’m referring now to a very brave man, CIA Director Bill Colby, whose very dearest friend approached us in the mid-90’s. And the week that we were going to have a meeting – listen carefully – the week we were going to have a meeting with this former CIA Director who had been on the inside of these covert operations, where he was going to transfer to our group $50 million in funding... 

AB: What? 

SG: ... They found him floating down the Potomac River. The colonel...

AB: Wait, wait wait... Under what arrangement - how did, I mean, $50 million, for example - under what auspices, how was that going to happen?

SG: We never got that far, nor did Mr. Colby. My point is this, and I'm not saying this to disturb Bill Colby's family, but I've decided that the truth has got to come out on some of these things, including these illegal, rogue operations that would ‘phone in’ a threat like this to a civilian medical doctor.

AB: Um hmm.

SG: I've never signed a national security oath, and those people who have who are listening, mark my words, go to our website - - and contact me, because as far as I'm concerned the actions taken by this group make them ineligible to cite the National Security Act of 1947, or any other constitutionally-approved law, because they are operating as an illegal, extra-constitutional entity. 

AB: Got it. All right, Dr. Greer, hold tight. [To his audience] In the middle of the night, you're listening to Coast to Coast A.M. and I bet you had never heard any of this before from Dr. Greer.

 [commercial break]

AB: Just to be sure that we all heard this correctly. Let's have Dr. Greer go over this one more time. A - uh- murder, Dr. Greer? You're saying a murder.

SG: Yes.

AB: Uh. And the set up to this was?

SG: Well, I'm - my group was approached by a colonel who I do not want to name, who was Bill Colby's, one of his very best, friends, and they had been following what we were doing in the early and mid nineties with what… became But this man approached a member of our Board of Directors…, and said that there was this person who is very connected up and historically had been connected to these projects, who absolutely agreed that it was time to end the secrecy. He wanted to transfer to us the means to do so through some assets that he had access to and… he wanted to be sure that there was adequate funding to do it properly which was around $50 million (which is a rounding error on the $7 trillion oil economy) and that they had some devices and physical equipment that they wanted to also transfer so that we could get this disclosed and get it secured and out to the public. So there was a "cell" if you want to look at it that way, that… had some involvement from Mr. Colby that wanted to do this. So, the meeting was set up between a member of my Board and Bill Colby, and the week that that meeting was to be actuated, he was found floating down the Potomac River. Now, what's interesting about the death of Bill Colby was that… He left the house opened, he left the computer on, the coffee maker on, and all this. This was actually publicly and very briefly stated, but then, of course, it was written off as an "accidental" drowning while he was out canoeing on the Potomac River.

AB: I recall.

SG: Now, in reality, it's very much like what's being portrayed where art now is imitating life in "The Manchurian Candidate", where there is a Senator who was going to blow the whistle on this transnational group that was running all this and he is murdered by this Manchurian candidate in the Chesapeake Bay when he's out kayaking and it's made to look like a drowning accident and is reported out through the media shills…, as an accidental drowning. So what's interesting is that this is precisely what happened to Bill Colby… and of course, not long after that, my right hand assistant and best friend in all these efforts, Shari Adamiak was - uh, she died - and this colonel came to her wake that was held at her apartment in Denver and he just came up to me and he said, "You know, of course, Bill Colby was killed trying to get the truth out on this to help us, and you guys have had your own losses, but we can't look back, we can't dwell on the negative. We can't look back. We have to move forward." And that's my message to people, that's always how we have to -

AB: I know, but if you believe what you just told me, then -

SG: It's not a belief. I know it's true, I mean I know it... 

AB: Okay, if you know it's true what you just told me, then that means they will kill to prevent any serious damage. They will kill to stop any real serious damage. Therefore -

SG: If they can get away with it. Remember, those were the early days. We didn't have the systems we have in place today.

AB: Doctor, if they can get away with killing a former CIA director, they can sure get away with killing an emergency room doctor.

SG: W ell, perhaps. But, except, I'm... he was doing this in a very clandestine way.  I am not doing what I'm doing in a clandestine way. 

AB: True enough. 

SG: And, the other thing to remember is that we're much more sophisticated now than we were back in the mid 90s when this happened. We have enormous support within some of the groups that are running these covert projects who want to see this happen and I don't lose any sleep. I don't lose one minute of sleep over this, and none of the military witnesses working with me should. Now, it's not to say it's risk-free… There are risks with everything we do. But you also have to look at the benefit. If… there are covert programs that are sitting on technologies that could give us an entirely sustainable, long-term civilization without the need for damaging the environment, without the need for 80% of the world's population living in abject poverty, is it not worth some risk?... if we're not willing to step up to the plate on something of this importance, then we're really not worth breathing the free air of Earth.

And that about wraps it up for this episode. Next up – Woo-Woo Land! J


* I initially and carelessly wrote 'lies', but that gives a negative connotation which should only apply to intentional distortions, for selfish purposes, of what we believe to be the truth. The good of the community justifies fabrications, engaged in for their perceived benefit.  If our allegiance is, secretly, to another community, then I think we have the present situation with regard to the breakaway civilisation, and the manufacturing of lies to conceal it.
