March 2016 email to John Podesta confirms that Democrats sought "to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry," and have succeeded: "The unawareness remains strong." Wikileaks email, March 13, 2016 from Bill Ivey, CAP trustee and appointee in Bill Clinton administration, worried about Trump

March 13, 2016 email to John Podesta (via

To: john podesta Date: 2016-03-13 17:06 Subject: From Bill Ivey

Dear John:...

"Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I'm certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not. And as I've mentioned, we've all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking - and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.

I fear we are all now trying to navigate a set of forces that cannot be simply explained or fully understood, so it is and will reamin interesting!

Sent with a handshake, Bill"


Commentary on above email: 

10/13/16, "“We Conspire To Produce An Unaware And Compliant Citizenry”," Captain's Journal, Herschel Smith 

"The email features one of Podesta’s colleagues from the Center for American Progress admitting that the institutional left “conspires to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry,ostensibly to impose their radical agenda on us without much resistance.

The correspondent is Bill Ivey of Global Cultural Strategies, “the online representation of the ideas, writings, and affiliations of author/consultant Bill Ivey.” He is an author trained in folklore and history, a trustee of the Center for American Progress, a former team leader in the Barack Obama presidential transition in 2008, and the former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts in the Clinton administration.

In the email from March of 2016, Ivey expresses concern about the rise of “opinionated blowhard” Trump and frets because the “citizenry” seems to be awakening....

Mr. Ivey, you make the same mistake that most other progressives make....Messaging won’t change things for us. When I say “us,” I mean more people than you know. Donald Trump is a symptom, not the disease. The only other candidate who had any chance of winning was Ted Cruz, and he was as hated by the establishment as Trump is. Trump didn’t ascend to the top because of his television persona, but because it’s all being burned down by the people. Trump is the vessel. The people threw gasoline and lit the match....

Your plans for collectivism can’t control the American spirit...But since your world view works from the top down, I don’t expect you to understand this."...


"Has there ever been a plutocratic class more adept at claiming the moral high ground for wealth and privilege achieved in large measure by the impoverishment of its fellow citizens and decimation of domestic industries? If so, we can’t think of it."..."The Slave Power,"  via


The composition of power in the US in 2016 equates to that which led to the Civil War:

June 23, 2016, "JAG Repost Saved: The Slave Power," Reason and Revelation blog

"A trans-partisan and trans-regional, numerically small but economically and politically powerful elite—in our case, financial, technological and corporate—essentially control political debate and get their way on everything important, in defiance of popular will, in order to enrich themselves at the expense of everyone else."...

Added: Fastest way to get "an unaware and compliant citizenry":

George Soros

"“A few wealthy businessmen-not broad grassroots support-started and sustain the ‘medical’ marijuana and drug legalization movements in the U.S. Without their money and influence, the drug legalization movement would shrivel.” US DEA paper"

4/2/2014, "George Soros’ real crusade: Legalizing marijuana in the U.S.," Washington Times, Kelly Riddell

Image: The above image of Soros with a marijuana leaf appeared in the April 2014 Washington Times article. I copied it from the article at that time. As of Oct. 15, 2016, the image may no longer accompany the article. (Susan, blog proprietor)


And if you don't like it, Soros says-in his 2010 Wall St. Journal op-ed-- you're a racist:

10/26/2010, "Why I Support Legal Marijuana," Wall St. Journal, George Soros

"We should invest in effective education rather than ineffective arrest and incarceration....

"The racial inequities that are part and parcel of marijuana enforcement policies cannot be ignored. African-Americans are no more likely than other Americans to use marijuana but they are three, five or even 10 times more likely—depending on the city—to be arrested for possessing marijuana. I agree with Alice Huffman, president of the California NAACP, when she says that being caught up in the criminal justice system does more harm to young people than marijuana itself. Giving millions of young Americans a permanent drug arrest record that may follow them for life serves no one's interests.

Racial prejudice also helps explain the origins of marijuana prohibition. When California and other U.S. states first decided (between 1915 and 1933) to criminalize marijuana, the principal motivations were not grounded in science or public health but rather in prejudice and discrimination against immigrants from Mexico who reputedly smoked the "killer weed."...
