The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Organized Crime


On this interview, investigative journalist Whitney Webb discusses her guide, “One Nation Below Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime That Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein.” The guide is so lengthy, it was reduce into two volumes. Quantity 1 alone is 544 pages, however it’s an enchanting learn and extremely well-referenced.

When requested what drove or impressed her to grow to be an investigative journalist and to jot down this tome, Webb evaluations a few of her private historical past that made her query adults and authority basically and, extra particularly, the programs that run our world, together with well being care and politics.

“I grew to become aware of quite a lot of these points with well being care and massive pharma, environmental points and political stuff … There’s simply quite a lot of stuff you understand as you begin to examine, like how many individuals have been, for lack of a greater phrase, screwed over, or had issues robbed from them … their lives or their family members on the intense finish …

Clearly, it’s a system that is not working for individuals. It isn’t designed to work for individuals. It is designed to weaken individuals for the advantage of the highly effective. I do not wish to reside in a world like that, and now I’ve youngsters, and I do not need them to reside in that world.

What I’ve seen, particularly over the previous a number of years, is [how] harmful individuals with energy [target] kids, to vital levels … Actually, these items can not proceed … Extra of us have to talk up. I felt that … figuring out these items, I needed to do one thing. Fortunately, for me, it will definitely became a profession, however it wasn’t deliberate.”

Studying the Indicators

Whereas COVID-19 took many without warning, the globalist cabal has in actual fact, for many years, telegraphed that they had been making a New World Order, and even that a number of world pandemics may pave the best way for this one world world governance. There have been additionally indicators that one thing was being deliberate to derail the 2020 elections within the U.S.

“I believe some individuals had been type of anticipating one thing,” Webb says. “By late 2019 and in January 2020, I did a report titled one thing like, ‘How U.S. Intelligence Is Making ready the American Public for a Failed Election in 2020.’ This was earlier than COVID, [but] it was principally clear that there was going to be some … push for this home terror agenda … and that there was going to be quite a lot of problems round 2020.

That stuff was out within the open by the tip of 2019, and COVID [arrived] in January. You could possibly type of see that one thing was happening there, however it wasn’t fairly clear the extent of what was going to go on. I believe some individuals had been anticipating some type of 9/11 2.0, however it ended up being a biosecurity 9/11.”

Operation Underworld

Webb’s guide, “One Nation Below Blackmail,” is a vital primer that gives the framework to grasp not simply the function and performance of Jeffrey Epstein, but additionally, extra broadly, the mess we’re now discovering us in. She goes again virtually 100 years, to World Battle II, detailing the connections between the intelligence neighborhood in the US and arranged crime, and the way the online of corruption grew from there. As defined by Webb:

“The mafia and the mob had been skilled criminals. Their companies had been principally rackets of criminality, most frequently intercourse trafficking or prostitution and drug smuggling, and, clearly, these actions necessitate quite a lot of monetary crimes like cash laundering, amongst different issues, with a view to increase and preserve these rackets.

That is principally what organized crime is in a nutshell. You could have somebody like Epstein, who’s the main focus of Quantity 2 of the guide, ‘Down the Line,’ who’s partaking in intercourse trafficking. However he was additionally concerned in arms trafficking and cash laundering to a major diploma — the identical rackets of organized crime going again to the ’20s and ’30s.

That was their realms, but additionally grew to become the realms of intelligence businesses. Undoubtedly, U.S. intelligence has engaged in these actions, however a number of intelligence businesses all over the world, particularly intelligence businesses that collaborate or are allied with the CIA, [such as] intelligence businesses in Latin America, whenever you’re speaking about drug smuggling.

One theme all through the guide is the completely different areas and scandals the place U.S. and Israeli intelligence have cooperated within the growth of those rackets — issues like Iran Contra, for instance, which might be an accessible scandal to lots of people.

It was much more intensive than simply arms for hostages’ scenario. On the finish of the day, it was an arms trafficking and drug trafficking scenario, with the thought of financing secret wars across the globe with a concentrate on the Contras in Nicaragua, but additionally elsewhere …

And as I level out within the guide, the fusion of organized crime and intelligence grew to become formalized in World Battle II in one thing that is often known as Operation Underworld, the place the workplace of Naval intelligence with the CIA’s precursor, the OSS [Office of Strategic Services], formally aligned themselves with the New York mob — what was on the time known as the Nationwide Crime Syndicate, which was principally a merger of the Jewish mob and the Italian mafia.

The explanation that occurred is as a result of the mob had taken over a lot of the unions, and in doing so, that they had additionally taken over a lot of the Democratic social gathering, as their energy base was unions on the time. So, the mob took over the unions after which they took management of the Democratic social gathering in New York, and that preceded Operation Underworld.”

Blackmail and Organized Crime

The origin of the CIA (Central Intelligence Company) was the Coordinator of Info Workplace, which grew to become the Workplace of Strategic Providers (OSS) beneath the path of William Donovan throughout World Battle II. The OSS coordinated espionage actions for all branches of the armed forces. In 1947, networks developed as a part of the OSS grew to become what we now know because the CIA. It principally centralized all these intelligence networks into one.

“The primary theme of the guide, in line with Jeffrey Epstein, is to indicate how sexual blackmail is one thing that was utilized by organized crime even earlier than U.S. intelligence existed. They then get collectively and basically begin cooperating in quite a lot of these rackets, issues like intercourse trafficking, arms trafficking, drug trafficking. They type of fuse collectively and have this symbiotic relationship.

One of many methods they defend these rackets and increase them is by compromising highly effective individuals … I am principally tracing the continuity of these actions, and quite a lot of these identical monetary crimes, effectively past when these teams first got here collectively. I level to quite a few examples of the identical teams and the identical individuals from then, by the ’50s, the ’60s, the ’70s and into the ’80s.

Persons are conscious that there was some extent the place organized crime was identified to have had quite a lot of affect, clout and energy in the US. And sadly, individuals had been brainwashed to consider that it is gone, and that is not what occurred.

As a substitute, sexual blackmail took over our regulation enforcement businesses at a really early stage with the blackmail of Jay Edgar Hoover, who himself was additionally very into blackmail and blackmailed different individuals.

Basically, what this boils right down to is that that is management of knowledge, entry to privileged info and the weaponization of knowledge. That is type of what blackmail is in a way … At this very early stage, you had the top of regulation enforcement of the FBI utterly compromised by organized crime.

And he refused to go after organized crime just about the entire time he was FBI director, which he was for almost all of the twentieth century.”

The ‘Powerful on Crime’ Charade

One actually vital level Webb covers in her guide is that whereas it might seem as if organized crime is being combated, that is hardly ever ever the case. Tales of cracking down on organized crime are cowl tales to cover what’s actually taking place, which is the consolidation of organized crime territories. Webb explains:

“Mainly, the individuals which are strongest, particularly the organized criminals in mattress with intelligence, they’ve state safety, in a way, of their rackets, so that could be a big boon for them. And so they can weaponize it by their affect and energy over the CIA and teams like that … and have their competitors taken out.

That is one thing that is been happening for a really very long time. One early instance I give within the guide is Thomas Dewey. He was governor of New York and a contender for U.S. president at one level, however he grew to become well-known as a prosecutor of organized crime, and he was truly concerned in Operation Underworld, which was the alliance of intelligence and arranged crime.

He later grew to become a enterprise associate of the mob himself by the ’50s and ’60s. One other politician that additionally grew to become tied with organized crime was William O’Dwyer. He was mayor of New York for an prolonged time frame. [Dewey and O’Dwyer] had been prosecuting a mobster and so they had been praised within the media as being powerful on crime.

However actually, that specific mobster they had been going after, Lepke Buchalter, had principally been consigned to loss of life by all the opposite guys within the mob. They needed him out. So, he was bought out and so they took over his territory. However these prosecutors had been praised as powerful on crime and so they had been elected on this powerful on crime picture, however actually, they’re in mattress with organized crime.

You see this with somebody like Rudolph Giuliani many years later within the Eighties. He is prosecuting Italian organized crime, however turning into very near different sides of the Nationwide Crime Syndicate because it existed in that interval.

He’s consolidating territory by solely going after sure mobsters whose time had basically already set. After which he has this ‘powerful on crime’ picture that he makes use of to construct his political profession, whereas nonetheless having these alliances behind closed doorways. This can be a recurring theme …

Harry Truman made O’Dwyer U.S. ambassador to Mexico to defend him from felony costs associated to organized crime exercise of the mayor’s workplace. He later needed to testify to the Senate Committee on Organized Crime, the Kefauver Committee, and was principally responsible as sin.

However Harry Truman had stepped in, as a result of at that time, the Democratic Celebration, particularly the New York Democratic Celebration … was utterly constructed on the system of unsavory alliances, and that is simply the character of energy.”

If we’ve discovered something these previous couple of years, it’s that issues aren’t all the time as they look like. Fortunately, we’ve got individuals like Webb to assist us perceive what’s actually happening.

The place’s All of the Cash Going?

Naturally, large quantities of income are generated by these organized crime actions. The place is all of it going? What’s it used for? Initially, intelligence businesses sought methods to finance secret wars, off the books, and cooperating with the crime syndicate allowed for the amassing of black funds.

For a very long time, this was justified as essential to battle communism, however with the autumn of the Soviet Union, that excuse collapsed, and from that time on, the nexus of energy cut up into two divergent factions, every with their very own cherished intent.

“You see it in U.S. politics right this moment,” she says. “You could have individuals which are hungry for a return to the Reagan period the place America’s on prime and use these identical sorts of unlawful actions to additional U.S. imperialism … after which you may have the internationalist camp, the globalists that need world governance.

You type of have them competing, however each factions return to Iran-Contra and these intelligence organized crime teams. The Clintons, for instance, you see them being concerned in Iran-Contra, and I’d positively place them within the internationalist camp.

It is fairly clear that Epstein moved in that path by the ‘90s as effectively, and that type of explains a few of his interactions with the Clinton White Home all through the Nineteen Nineties, which had been very scandalous and have main implications for nationwide safety, in a approach that I believe actually few Individuals perceive. I definitely did not perceive till I did the analysis and wrote this guide.

However then you may have individuals rally round Trump. For example, you may have an adviser to him, Reagan’s Legal professional Common Edwin Meese, who was additionally … concerned in felony exercise …

Your unique query, ‘What are they doing with the cash?’ Nicely, we do not actually know, however should you take a look at somebody like Epstein, who was in these monetary networks — a key monetary felony … who doled in intercourse crimes. He is concerned with Iran-Contra, then he will get concerned with Clinton White Home stuff, then he will get concerned with increase this new mannequin of philanthropy typified by the Clinton Basis and the Invoice & Melinda Gates Basis …

You see him over time getting actually concerned with eugenics and transhumanism. A number of these ‘philanthropies’ are additionally selling insurance policies that lead us in these instructions. From a really early stage … you may have Epstein, in 2012, making an attempt to promote genomic sequences of individuals to huge pharma for this gene tailor-made drugs that now, within the COVID period, we’re listening to about in a giant approach.

So, as you are centralizing management and taking management of all the cash, finally you do not want any more cash. It turns into about energy and management, and how you can entrench your self in that place so that you simply preserve the established order that advantages you. Clearly, that does not profit the American public. That advantages these profession criminals.”

It’s About Energy and Management

So, to summarize, the motivation behind all this felony exercise will not be merely the hoarding of cash to reside within the lap of luxurious. It is in regards to the energy and management that cash buys. And, over time, the will to manage will get extra intense, simply as easy greed for wealth can get extra intense the more cash you accumulate, to the purpose they now search to manage individuals on the organic, genetic and molecular degree.

Epstein, whereas dismissed as a easy intercourse felony, was much more instrumental to the globalist cabal than that. For instance, he was so influential in science that when Gates determined he needed a Nobel Prize, he tapped Epstein to assist him get it. He didn’t get it, however that is how he received a gathering with individuals concerned in choosing that prize.

Epstein was additionally very influential on the planet of philanthropy. “I believe he was a center administration for an entire bunch of those completely different rackets which are tied to individuals like Invoice Gates and Invoice Clinton,” Webb says.

Epstein additionally had a comparatively shut relationship with David Rockefeller, who personally appointed Epstein to the board of Rockefeller College. Epstein was additionally a member of the Trilateral Fee, created by David Rockefeller, and the Council on International Relations. Even after Epstein was outed as a pedophile and intercourse felony, they saved him as a member.

“Finally, what you are seeing with this group, over time, is that they cannot consider they get away with it so typically, for therefore lengthy. They grow to be so rich, so wealthy, they have no use for any more cash, and it turns into about energy and management,” Webb says.

“Additionally, they see the remainder of us as subhuman, as a result of they assume we’re such saps that they’ll simply screw us over and we’ll do nothing, on a regular basis. A number of that is generational. A few of it is not, however there are households concerned right here, the place you may have a number of generations of them and so they’re principally taught that the remainder of us are simply idiots.

There’s this classism there, the place ‘We’re the elite and we’re herding these individuals alongside; they’re full idiots and we will deal with them nevertheless we would like and exploit them.’ You see that manifest within the intercourse trafficking actions of Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, the place Maxwell is asking the women they’re trafficking ‘trash.’ However they view all of us like that.

They see themselves as elite, and lots of people name them that as a result of they’ve grow to be an financial elite. However they’ve grow to be an financial elite by felony exercise, not by sincere means, the overwhelming majority of them.

That is what I attempt to chronicle within the guide, as a result of you may’t perceive Epstein except you perceive this community, and that community precedes Epstein’s existence by many years, and it continues even after he’s gone.

That is what I need individuals to essentially take away from the guide, as a result of we’re principally being informed by mainstream media that now that Epstein is gone, the one unhealthy billionaire on the planet has been dealt justice and now every part’s wonderful, return to sleep.

It’s crucial to appreciate the extent of his involvement in monetary crimes. It isn’t just like the intercourse crimes, which had been perpetrated in opposition to X variety of minors. Clearly, these are horrific crimes, however the monetary crimes, just about each American’s been affected by that to a major diploma.”

The Clinton Crime Syndicate

Within the interview, Webb names various people with ties to felony exercise, amongst them, the Clintons, who’ve had an unimaginable variety of individuals round them die beneath mysterious circumstances.

“I positively assume the crimes of the Clinton household are simply so egregious and uncontrolled that it is simply gorgeous to me that they’ve been capable of evade any type of authorized case … This felony stuff has entrenched their energy in that specific camp which is extra allied with the internationalist facet of issues. They’ve simply bought the U.S. down the river in a approach that’s actually mind-boggling.”

The Suspicious Loss of life of Mark Middleton

One instance of a Clinton-related loss of life is that of Mark Middleton, particular assistant to the chief of employees on the Clinton White Home, who was accountable for establishing Epstein’s visits to the White Home. He was suicided earlier this 12 months, proper when Webb was writing her guide. What did he know?

“Mark Middleton was recruited for that place as a part of the 1992 election. [He was] principally positioned in that place due to his function as a fundraiser throughout that election cycle. However by February 1995, he needed to resign, and the circumstances of his resignation are very suspicious.

The investigation into Mark Middleton is so suspicious that the George W. Bush Administration invoked government privilege for the primary time, simply weeks earlier than 9/11, to maintain paperwork in regards to the investigation into Mark Middleton out of the fingers of Congress. That’s astounding, as a result of it is not even the identical administration, ostensibly an administration in opposition to the corruption of the Clinton period, we’re informed.

Invoking government privilege for the primary time to guard a man that is particular assistant to chief of employees — clearly, Middleton was concerned in some very suspect exercise. And people investigations do not cope with Epstein, they cope with different people who Middleton was assembly with …

It is … remembered as China Gate. I believe that is type of a misnomer. China’s positively concerned, however it’s extra honest, I believe, to name it Riady Gate. Riady referring to the household of Mochtar Riady, an East Asian oligarch of Chinese language origin, however they’re Indonesian.

They bankrolled the Clintons again when Clinton was governor of Arkansas and thru his presidency. By the early Nineteen Nineties, that they had grow to be official enterprise companions of China, in order that they had been concerned in infiltrating and focusing on the commerce division. That is a part of why Commerce Secretary Ron Brown finally ends up useless on this aircraft crash in 1996 … and Epstein is in the course of it.

Whereas Epstein is assembly with Middleton, he’s [also] courting the very airline on the heart of Iran-Contra and Mena, Arkansas, drug operating and arms smuggling — Southern Air Transport — to run cargo between China and the U.S., ostensibly for the companies of Leslie Wexner.

However given who he is assembly with on the time, and all of this different stuff, it factors to some type of unlawful arms smuggling into the US. A number of these weapons … ended up within the fingers of gangs in American inside cities on the identical time that the identical community created the crack epidemic, which has been reported by individuals just like the late journalist, Gary Webb. No relation, by the best way.”

Epstein Co-Conspirators Flip Up Lifeless

As defined by Webb, the identical group of individuals accountable for making a drug epidemic in America’s inside cities was concurrently establishing a system of privately owned for-profit prisons — one thing applied throughout Clinton’s time within the White Home — thereby creating a brand new mannequin of defacto slavery for African Individuals arrested on trumped-up drug costs.

Additionally they imprisoned individuals for gang violence, which they exacerbated by smuggling unlawful weapons into the U.S. from China. Except for the Clintons, Chinese language army intelligence and firms that had enterprise relationships with Epstein relationship again to the Eighties had been all concerned on this elaborate scheme.

“So, there’s quite a lot of scandalous stuff that went on the Clinton administration that I believe most Individuals do not actually have a deal with on anymore. And conveniently, the investigation into it was completely upended by 9/11 …

Final December was the primary time we received the total customer logs of Epstein on the White Home, and what had beforehand been thought to have been 5 conferences with Mark Middleton on the White Home became about … 17 in complete for Epstein …

Nearly all of them tied to very loopy and really unlawful fundraising exercise by the Clintons, both within the ‘92 election or the ‘96 election, and Epstein was in the course of that. He after all turns into concerned within the creation of the Clinton Basis after Clinton leaves workplace, which as most individuals know now, is principally their slush fund.

So, [Epstein] is vital … for these individuals and there is a purpose that so little consideration has been paid to his funds. In the event you take a look at the Epstein case, the one harmless particular person to show up useless was the son of the choose that was going to supervise the Epstein Deutsche Financial institution case.

There was successful on the household of the choose … I do not assume they need individuals going into the Epstein Deutsche Financial institution relationship, the Epstein, JP Morgan or Bear Stearns relationship, for various causes.

Sadly, I did not get to cowl this within the guide … however it looks like Epstein’s function within the collapse of Bear Stearns was very vital. And that is troubling, as a result of the collapse of Bear Stearns principally began the 2008 monetary disaster, which was an enormous wealth switch, once more, similar to the Eighties …

However principally, all the opposite individuals within the Epstein case which have ended up useless within the final couple years have been co-conspirators of Epstein: Jean-Luc Brunel [and] Steve Hoffenberg …

And when it comes to Mark Middleton’s loss of life, it’s additionally very suspect. He was discovered hanging from a tree by the neck — it was an extension wire, not a rope — a shotgun wound to the chest, dominated a suicide.

No footage or video footage of the loss of life scene are allowed to be made public by a choose order in Arkansas. So, it is simply nuts, to be sincere. And the property the tree was on, the place he was discovered useless, is tied to the Clinton Basis. It is known as Heifer Worldwide.”

A Cause To Be Fearless

When requested if she’s involved about her personal security after exposing the actions of one of many greatest organized crime syndicates on the planet, she says:

“I am not, and a part of that’s as a result of I really feel the best way to essentially beat these individuals is by not being afraid of them … people who find themselves afraid are straightforward to manage. So even when you understand every part about these individuals, should you’re afraid of them, they’ve energy over you. The one approach for, not simply me, however anybody, to be free from them is to be freed from concern of them. You possibly can’t be scared of those individuals.

Really, they’re petrified of us, and so they’re scared of normal individuals waking up as a result of, clearly, there are extra of us than there are of them. And, if uncovered for all their criminality, as I am making an attempt to do within the guide, the extra individuals which are conscious of that, the extra rapidly it may unravel.

I believe, with quite a lot of the stuff previously couple years particularly, they’ve actually overplayed their hand. In the event that they did one thing to me, it will simply make my guide a bestseller. Extra individuals would learn it. I do not assume they need that …

What I’ve produced in these books are simply the information. It’s extremely effectively sourced, not simply when it comes to the variety of citations, however the high quality of the sources. There’s quite a lot of materials there for individuals to chew on and do their very own analysis. It is a useful resource for individuals and it is a place to begin.

They do not need individuals to interact with that kind of knowledge as a result of, clearly, their narratives about these occasions will not maintain up as a result of they don’t seem to be presenting the information, they’re presenting propaganda …

You possibly can’t be afraid of them as a result of … quite a lot of what we’re preventing now’s, in a way, a battle for the soul of the nation, the soul of the world. It is a religious struggle, on some degree. So, should you’re giving in to concern, you are dropping, regardless of how a lot data you have amassed about how issues work and the way these persons are. In the event you’re afraid of them, you are giving them energy over you.”

We Can Take Our Energy Again Anytime

In Chapter 21, Webb explains her causes for believing Epstein gained’t get replaced with a cadre of recent blackmailers. They don’t want individuals like him anymore, due to trendy surveillance know-how.

They will entry every part, all of your accounts, cameras, telephones, microphones, surveillance cameras, you title it. They will discover blackmail materials on anybody nowadays. In fact, this tech can be getting used to enslave and management the remainder of us. There’s a approach out, nevertheless, and it’s simpler than you may assume. Webb explains:

“Like I discussed earlier, these individuals see us as subhuman and full idiots. So, they assume that we’ll simply be depending on this know-how endlessly, that we have grow to be full slaves to our personal comfort and we’ll by no means take our energy again. And it is truly very straightforward to take your energy again.

You do not have to be a slave to your smartphone or know-how, and so they depend on the flexibility to research these plenty of information on synthetic intelligence algorithms that — due to the corruption in company America — are oversold. They don’t seem to be truly nearly as good as they are saying they’re.

They’re counting on you taking your smartphone all over the place you go and utilizing it for every part and principally giving them what they need. The best way to take energy again is to scale back that stuff in your life. Get native and construct parallel programs. That is one thing that we will all take steps in the direction of.

They’ve grow to be so depending on these digital types of management … the digital ID agenda, vaccine passports and central financial institution digital currencies. They absolutely count on us to go very willingly into these digital corrals which are rather more controlling and far much less free for the people who enter them — however they want us to voluntarily enter.

Now we’ve got these dueling gasoline and power crises and the apparent intent is [that] people who find themselves chilly and hungry usually tend to be voluntarily led into these programs. However once more, we’ve got to comply with it. And meaning we’ve got company, and so they realize it. They cannot technically power us. Now we have to give up our energy utterly to them, and we’ve got all of the instruments to take it again, we simply should take duty and begin doing it.

That is why I’d actually warning individuals in opposition to what I see as psychological conditioning, this concept that we’ve got to attend for a political savior, vote for the fitting particular person, and as quickly as we get the ‘proper particular person’ within the White Home, every part might be wonderful. The extent of the corruption is huge and there’s no approach one particular person on the White Home can undo all of it.

What we’d like are common individuals to take duty. So many people are on the lookout for the nice man versus the unhealthy man on the extent of nation state management. No. The great guys are simply the common individuals such as you and me, and the unhealthy guys are the individuals most frequently on the prime which have stomped on heads and clawed their method to the heights of energy, no matter what nation state you are speaking about.

It is amongst common individuals the place you will see the ‘good guys’ you are on the lookout for and it is time for these individuals to return collectively and say ‘Sufficient!’ And we actually can do it. It simply is about taking private duty … Now we have to take our energy again and that begins on a person degree.”
