James L. Jones, National Security Advisor

“Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through General Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today.” Remarks by National Security Adviser Jones at 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy, 2009. This quote is from the website of Hillary’s “mothership,” the Council on Foreign Relations, so I have no doubt that it’s authentic.

To the best of my knowledge, Kissinger nor Scowcroft nor Berger had at this time any elected or appointed position or any official role in the United States government while General Jones was taking orders from them. This is truly a deep state.

From wikipedia: 

“Scowcroft is a …member of Honorary Council of Advisors for U.S.-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC).[12] Critics have suggested that Scowcroft is unethical in his lobbying for the Turkish and Azeri governments because of his ties with Lockheed Martin and other defense contractors that do significant business with Turkey.”

“In November 1997, Berger paid a $23,000 civil penalty to settle conflict of interest allegations stemming from his failure to sell his stock of Amoco Corporation as ordered by the White House. Berger was advised by the White House to sell the stock in early 1994. He said he had planned to sell the stock, but then forgot. He denied knowingly participating in decisions in which he had a financial interest.”

“Kissinger Associates, Inc., founded in 1982, is a New York City-based international consulting firm, founded and run by Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft. The firm assists its clients in identifying strategic partners and investment opportunities, advising clients on government relations throughout the world. Known for its secrecy, its specific activities are not public knowledge.”

So….secretive private investment consultants with strong private sector and financial ties to the defense and energy industries are giving daily orders to the United States National Security Advisor….

Their firm was part of Obama’s transition team though they say they don’t lobby the government. That must just be a play on words. There president has worked with both Lehman Bros. and the CFR. So where does electing a president to represent the people fall in here?
