John Ratcliffe, the possible new Director of National Intelligence (DNI) under Trump, had already been promoted earlier by publications like Infowars.com as a victory over the “left-wing Deep State” for attacking special investigator Mueller and being considered a Trump confidant.
But Infowars must know for a fact that Ratcliffe is a Bush insider and was in a law firm with John Ashcroft, the Attorney General under George W. Bush who was involved in 9/11 and the Patriot Act.
From 2004 to 2007, Ratcliffe, as a lawyer with no formal experience in espionage and counterterrorism, was the head of the Federal Counterterrorism and National Security Agency for the eastern part of the State of Texas at the request of President George W. Bush. In 2007 and 2008, Ratcliffe served as federal prosecutor for the same region.
In 2009, he became a partner in a law firm with former Bush Attorney General John Ashcroft.
Ashcroft studied at Yale University, home of the secret society Skull&Bones, which controls U.S. intelligence and the military and has among its members three generations of Bushs. Ashcroft himself was at Yale in the “St. Elmo Society”, but the entire university is under unified leadership of the establishment.
After September 11, 2001 Ashcroft was one of the biggest supporters of the Patriot Act and he authorized the use of torture. Two FBI agents testified under oath to the 9/11 Commission of Inquiry that Ashcroft ignored warnings of an imminent al-Qaeda attack.
The comments on Infowars show that a significant portion of the audience is no longer fooled:
“When are we going to see hillary/comey/clapper/brennan/strzok/mueller/rosenstein orange-jumpsuit-perp-walked???All this and that happening with the globalists. Then crickets. Nothing happens.” “Oh, deep state is panicked again. Let’s see, they’ve supposedly been panicking for the last 2 1/2 years now, every time Trump appoints another neocon swamper. Nothing happens except getting worse. The headlines are wearing out.” “Ratcliffe shared a law firm with George W. Bush era AG John Ashcroft, one of the primary architects of the Patriot Act. Doubt the so-called “deep state” is troubled over Ratcliffe’s appointment. We’re doubtless going to get more business as usual in the war on our liberties from him.” “Jones and Infowars once again proving what idiots they are. Only the truly stupid are gullible enough to constantly fall for this output from IW.”
Donald Trump made the truthers happy during his campaign, riling against the Saudi trail behind 9/11. After pompous announcements, however, there were no new revelations, but rather mass sales of weapons to the Saudi regime.
One of Trump’s most important allies is former mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who was in charge of New York during the period in question and became the target of suspicion.
There is also another connection that is of concern: Trump’s longtime friend is Stephen Schwarzman, a member of the secret organization Skull&Bones and chairman of the Blackstone Group.
The ISGP states: The Blackstone Group held the mortgage on Building 7 of the World Trade Center complex. The building housed the offices of various government agencies such as the CIA, the Department of Defense, the SEC and New York Emergency Management. Peter Peterson of Blackstone is a member of the Pilgrims Society, the Trilateral Commission, and has served as Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations. Sir Ronald Grierson of Blackstone was educated at Oxford, served in the SAS Special Operations Unit, worked at the Warburg Investment Bank, General Electric and served at the European Commission.
Formerly employed at Blackstone until 1998 was Jonathan Colby, son of the former CIA director. He later joined the Carlyle Group, which is staffed with high-profile neocons. He also served in the National Security under Henry Kissinger, who was proposed as head of the investigative commission after 9/11.
Kissinger and people from the CFR play a discreet but important role in the Trump administration.
Stephen A. Schwarzman is an inconspicuous, little-known man and would never raise as much attention as his long-time friend Donald Trump, though with over $10 billion, he is not only richer than the President, but the chairman of the Blackstone Group and leader of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a kind of link between the White House and the bosses of the economy. He attended Yale University and he is a member of the extremely creepy secret society Skull & Bones, which has been manning the switchboards of power for well over 100 years.
