§2. Monetization of U.S. Foreign Policy, 2008 - 2010
The globalist division of the globalist / media / spook / tech (GMST) cabal had long profited from sale of U.S. foreign policy favors, customarily after leaving office. The Clintons dispensed with this custom, exchanging favors for donations to a personal foundation while one of them served as Secretary of State. The Biden family upped the ante by discarding the charitable pretense altogether.
The sequence of actions and events, policies and programs that transformed the United States from a free society into one lacking the Constitutionally required ‘consent of the governed’. How this gap in governance is increasingly filled by force and violence, livelihood threats, mass surveillance, centralized control of messaging, censorship, distraction, and miscounting of electoral results. Updated by inserting facts often revealed years after the event into the record when they actually took place.
