Who Needs Voters? The Sea Island Conspiracy
WHO NEEDS VOTERS?
The Sea Island Conspiracy
Pat Buchanan tells of anti-Trump meeting 'where oligarchs colluded with Beltway elites'
Over the long weekend before the Mississippi and Michigan primaries, the sky above Sea Island was black with corporate jets.
Apple’s Tim Cook, Google’s Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, Napster’s
Sean Parker, Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk and other members of the super-rich
were jetting in to the exclusive Georgia resort, ostensibly to
participate in the annual World Forum of the American Enterprise
Among the advertised topics of discussion: “Millennials: How Much Do They Matter and What Do They Want?”
That was the cover story.
As revealed by the Huffington Post, Sea Island last weekend was host
to a secret conclave at the Cloisters where oligarchs colluded with
Beltway elites to reverse the democratic decisions of millions of voters
and abort the candidacy of Donald Trump.
Among the journalists at Sea Island were Rich Lowry of National
Review, which just devoted an entire issue to the topic “Against Trump,”
and Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the Trumphobic New York Times.
Bush guru Karl Rove of Fox News was on hand, as were Speaker Paul
Ryan, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham,
dispatched by Trump in New Hampshire and a berserker on the subject of
So, too, was William Kristol, editor of the rabidly anti-Trump Weekly
Standard, who reported back to comrades: “The key task now, to …
paraphrase Karl Marx, is less to understand Trump than to stop him.”
Kristol earlier tweeted that the Sea Island conclave is “off the
record, so please do consider my tweets from there off the record.”
Redeeming itself for relegating Trump to its entertainment pages, the
Huffington Post did the nation a service in lifting the rug on
“something rotten in the state.”
What we see at Sea Island is that, despite all their babble about
bringing the blessings of “democracy” to the world’s benighted, AEI,
Neocon Central, believes less in democracy than in perpetual control of
the American nation by the ruling Beltway elites.
If an outsider like Trump imperils that control, democracy be damned.
The elites will come together to bring him down, because, behind party
ties, they are soul brothers in the pursuit of power.
Something else was revealed by the Huffington Post – a deeply embedded corruption that permeates this capital city.
The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research is a
501(c)(3) under IRS rules, an organization exempt from U.S. taxation.
Million-dollar corporate contributions to AEI are tax-deductible.
This special privilege, this freedom from taxation, is accorded to
organizations established for purposes such as “religious, educational,
charitable, scientific, literary … or the prevention of cruelty to
children or animals.”
What the co-conspirators of Sea Island were up to at the Cloisters
was about as religious as what the Bolsheviks at that girls school known
as the Smolny Institute were up to in Petrograd in 1917.
From what has been reported, it would not be extreme to say this was a
conspiracy of oligarchs, War Party neocons and face-card Republicans to
reverse the results of the primaries and impose upon the party, against
its expressed will, a nominee responsive to the elites’ agenda.
And this taxpayer-subsidized “Dump Trump” camarilla raises even larger issues.
Now America is not Russia or Egypt or China.
But all those countries are now moving purposefully to expose U.S.
ties to nongovernmental organizations set up and operating in their
Many of those NGOs have had funds funneled to them from U.S. agencies
such as the National Endowment for Democracy, which has backed
“color-coded revolutions” credited with dumping over regimes in Serbia,
Ukraine and Georgia.
In the early 1950s, in Iran and Guatemala, the CIA of the Dulles brothers did this work.
Whatever ones thinks of Vladimir Putin, can anyone blame him for not
wanting U.S. agencies backing NGOs in Moscow, whose unstated goal is to
see him and his regime overthrown?
And whatever one thinks of NED and its subsidiaries, it is time
Americans took a hard look at the tax-exempt foundations, think tanks
and public policy institutes operating in our capital city.
How many are like AEI, scheming to predetermine the outcome of
presidential elections while enjoying tax exemptions and posturing as
benign assemblages of disinterested scholars and seekers of truth?
How many of these tax-exempt think tanks are fronts and propaganda
organs of transnational corporations that are sustained with
tax-deductible dollars, until their “resident scholars” can move into
government offices and do the work for which they have been paid
handsomely in advance?
How many of these think tanks take foreign money to advance the interests of foreign regimes in America’s capital?
We talk about the “deep state” in Turkey and Egypt, the unseen
regimes that exist beneath the public regime and rule the nation no
matter the president or prime minister.
What about the “deep state” that rules us, of which we caught a glimpse at Sea Island?
A diligent legislature of a democratic republic would have long since dragged America’s deep state out into the sunlight.
