The Shadow Government


Josh Albrechtsen

Whether you believe it or not, it’s out there. The Shadow Government. The people who will step in should anything happen to our current government. Back when it was formed, the supposed cause was a nuclear strike made by the Russians during the Cold War. Nowadays, who knows? Just know that they will be there if our Head of State gets…..decapitated.

The shadow government is made up of a number of unknown “mystery men”. These men include prominent politicians, such as representatives and senators, extremely rich bankers, and other powerful people. It is controlled by a “secret” organization called the “Illuminati”, Greek for “enlightened”. The Illuminati is the elite order of the Freemasons, the most famous of all secret societies, a dubious honour.

The ideas, theories, and assumptions about the shadow government and the Illuminati are as numerous as grains of sand upon a beach. Some of these are true, but most are mindless drivel. Secret organizations will always have an aura of mysteriousness, and man fears the unknown. He will invent things, especially things that are simply not true. People will talk about brainwashing, mind control, and super-human genetically enhanced races. The childish conspiracy theories have very little, if any, basis in reality. However, what they actually do, in practice, is much more realistic, making it all the more terrifying.

First off, the shadow government is always watching. Everywhere we go, everything we do, they know. These people have numerous unregistered spy satellites floating about, and those satellites are watching. This satellite surveillance program is code-named “Big Brother,” hence the phrase “Big Brother is watching.” They also do numerous other things. These include, but are not limited to: 1) eavesdropping by the use of miniature microphones, 2) tapping the telephone line, 3) communication interception, such as cell phone or radio, 4) miniature cameras, 5) CCTV, which is like security cameras, 6) GPS tracking, which can pinpoint you anywhere on the globe, 7) military reconnaissance, 8) spy aircraft, 9) internet tracking, and lastly, 10) computer surveillance. Big Brother knows you better than you know yourself.

We all know about them. We’ve all seen them. The black helicopters lurking in the shadows and darting around in the dark of night. The official explanation for them is as follows: “The U.S. Army regularly conducts both exercises and operational missions in United States’ airspace. Some of the exercises have taken place in heavily urbanized areas, including Los Angeles, Detroit, San Francisco, Oakland, and Washington D.C. Most operational missions are tasked to narcotic interdiction in the American Southwest and out of Florida. By extensive use of GPS and night vision equipment, as well as other classified means, they are able to fly in zero visibility conditions with no running lights. At this high intensity level of operation, training is almost as dangerous as actual combat. Frequent practice is necessary to retain proficiency.” Do you really believe any of that?

While there is no concrete proof of the shadow government, it has been acknowledged by some of the highest people in our government. Senator Daniel K. Inouye said at the Iran Contra Hearings “there exists a shadowy government with it’s own Army, it’s own Navy, it’s own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” Does that sound like a good thing to you?

The shadow government pervades every aspect of our lives, from reading the newspaper (media bias/control), to our daily commute (spy satellites), to how often we call our mothers (phone tap, something that has been in the news a lot lately).

The shadow government itself consists of five branches, as opposed to our current three-branch government. The first branch, like our own, is the Executive Branch. Obviously, these people run the whole deal. It consists of influential politicians. The second branch, the Intelligence Branch, covers all the covert operations. It is made up of several national security agencies, such as the NSA (Nation Security Agency), the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), and others we don’t know much about. The third branch is the War Department. They design weapons and the like. It includes the SDIO (Strategic Defense Initiative Office, which is involved in pre-emptive strikes), U.S. Space Command, and private organizations, such as the Jason Group, a politically immune manufacturer of classified weapons. The fourth branch is the Weapons Industry Branch. These people produce and test the plans from the War Department. This group consists of mostly private weapons developers and the like, such as Lockheed Martin, Lear, Hercules, and others. The fifth and final branch is called the Financial Branch. It is mostly the Federal Reserve System, but includes self-financing institutions such as the CIA, Department of Justice, and Special Forces.

The shadow government is in control of our lives. They control the banks, the media, and anything else you care to name. They know everything about us. Pray that nothing happens to our current leader, or this organization will assume public control. Can you say…..dictatorship?
