What works better than shutting down the press? Why, bankrolling and controlling it, of course!
“Dictators get started” by shutting down the press, Sen. John McCain said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press.” John McCain
“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” William Colby, former director of the CIA
Of course, McCain was not speaking of Colby. He was referring to Trump – the sworn enemy of the agency Colby led. McCain is throwing us off the scent. “Trump as dictator” is one of the memes intended by the establishment to prevent his administration from bringing this country together.
And I am not saying that Trump won’t become a dictator. He might, and it looks like a Police State is the intended outcome of the current American political landscape. But in the competition for Statist power, CIA has been at it longer, and is better at it, than Trump. If Trump becomes a dictator, he will have fulfilled a goal of the CIA and the shadowy elites that they serve.
