With only less than 2 weeks until the general election, top campaign aides for Hillary Clinton were decisively caught up doing more damage control than usual after FBI Director James Comey’s shocking and ill-timed announcement of the FBI renewing the Clinton probe in light of discovering the existence of new emails pertinent to the case on the seized laptop of former Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton’s top aide Human Abedin under investigation for numerous sexual misconduct allegations with a minor. They were simultaneously forced to confront the constantly emerging new revelations showing evidence of widespread corruptionx , pay to play, violating federal election laws and campaign finance regulations, etc. within the leaked Podesta emails published by WikiLeaks. Their flawed and perpetually scandal-ridden candidate/meal ticket must be protected at all costs; they were barely a week away from election day, and if they could just hold out until a win for Clinton on November 8, their legal troubles would somehow magically all be swept under the rug with a wave of the new president-elect’s royal scepter.
The urgent call was made to their numerous prominent operatives in the mainstream media and Democratic Party to poison the narrative with false accusations against Russia and Vladimir Putin to intentionally misguide, distract, and manipulate the diminishing number of reluctant but faithful Hillary supporters from giving any attention or merit to the flood of emails illicitly retrieved from the Gmail account of John Podesta, a well-established and highly influential power broker in the Washington political arena who is also the Hillary 2016 Presidential Campaign Chair.
In the midst of all this chaos and upheaval, a roughly 4-minute long video began to circulate around social media and on YouTube on Monday, November 1, 2016, in which stunning revelations were revealed in regard to the recent dramatic unfolding of events within an election that would more aptly be referred to as a grotesque freak show in the theatre of the absurd. These revelations were relayed and uploaded to YouTube by Dr. Steve Pieczenik, MD, PhD, a Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State who spent over 2 decades in the State Departments of the Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush Sr. administrations, serving under Secretaries Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, and James Baker.
Pieczenik opens the video by solemnly recounting the clandestine affairs that had taken place that very day: “Hillary and Bill Clinton and their entourage of assistants affected a civilian coup,” he announced at the video’s opening.
“This coup was done silently and very effectively through 2 methods: corruption and co-optation. The Clintons have been involved in co-opting our White House, our Judiciary, our CIA, our Federal Bureau of Investigation, our Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and our Director of the FBI James Comey for some time now. What they’ve done is to make sure they were part and parcel of a group of people who were interrelated through political cronyism. However, in order to stop this coup, we in the intelligence community and others involved have informally gotten together, and with their permission I am beginning to announce that we’ve initiated a counter-coup through Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.”
This rumor of turmoil among members of the US intelligence community who are frustrated with the level of corruption within the leadership of their bureaucratic institutions lines up with various unconfirmed secondhand accounts of mutiny within the FBI among agents who were outraged over FBI Director James Comey‘s decision back in July to not pursue charges.
Pieczenik explains the real motivation behind the recent letter from Comey: “What has happened in effect when Comey had to open up the case of Hillary Clinton and discuss the emails that were involved with the Anthony Weiner case, it was not the case itself that was important as the fact that this was the entrée for many of us in the counter coup to say to the (Obama) administration: ‘We have your number. Not only do we have your number, we’re gonna stop you from making Hillary the President of the United States, and at the same time we will convict and indict the President of the United States, (Attorney General) Loretta Lynch, and many others who were involved in the cover up of the massive corruption that occurred under the Clinton Foundation.”
He reveals that both the coup and the counter-coup were silent and initiated entirely through the internet, which he postulates may likely be the first time in history for any country. He wraps up the video by emphasizing the significance of this event, admitting, “I am just a small part of something far bigger than myself” and expressing gratitude to “the brave men and women who were in the FBI, CIA, the Director of Intelligence, the Military Intelligence, and men and women in 15 other intelligence organizations who were sick and tired of seeing this corruption in the White House and the Justice Department and in the Intelligence System.” He especially praised Julian Assange as being “very brave and really quite formidable in his ability to come forth and provide all the necessary emails that we gave to him in order to undermine Hillary and Bill Clinton.” This coordinated plot is taking place during what he calls “a major, major transition” and also touted as the “Second American Revolution” which would not be fought with guns or weapons.
He ends the video with this instruction: “I want you to understand what has happened. A moment of history is occurring right now in front of us and I’m proud to explain it to you.”
So, are any of Pieczenik’s disclosures true? Or is he just another self-deluded lunatic with a webcam and an audience? What is his motivation for making this video, and to what end? Remember, he practically wrote the manual for psychological warfare while he was at the State Department, and his training as a psychiatrist along with practice in the field makes him an authority on human behavior and subtle manipulation techniques to avoid detection.
One should at least take pause and carefully review Pieczenik’s words before summarily writing him off. His credentials are authentic, and his achievements are well-documented. He is extremely intelligent, literate, and well-educated, possessing a keen and vast intellect along with multiple doctorates and fluency in 5 languages, including Russian. He is a licensed medical doctor in the field of psychiatry, and his doctorate studies included an emphasis on international relations. His field expertise was in hostage negotiations and psychological warfare, the latter of which he would virtually write the training manual for.
There is no doubt that Pieczenik has built an impressive resume from his long career in government, which has provided him a unique insight into the secret dealings and day to day operations of the federal government and the way its various cabinets and institutions operate behind closed doors. Holding a Top Secret security clearance, he is privy to certain arcane knowledge that is prohibited to the public at large. It is a reasonable assumption that spending over 2 decades in the State Department under 5 different Presidents would provide him with ample opportunity to build his network and establish many insider contacts throughout the years in both parties, especially within the military and intelligence communities. Some of these contacts would obviously still be at their government posts and able to provide their former colleague with private accounts of the inner workings and dealings of their respective institutions.
However, he does seem to hoard an extensive tinfoil hat collection and has taken upon himself to act as a subject matter authority and confirm as fact some of the more outlandish conspiracies propagated by fringe elements on the right such as Alex Jones and his Info Wars network. Among such conspiratorial claims he vigorously subscribes to are such right wing paranoid delusions like the Sandy Hook massacre never happened, and that it was entirely staged by the government for thex purpose of taking everyone’s guns away.
He is also an ardent and vocal supporter of Donald Trump, who is allegedly the preferred candidate for the presidency among law enforcement agents within the FBI. But as of publication date, no clear or direct link has been found that would be able to draw any kind of particular relationship between Pieczenik and Trump. We are left only to speculate on the motivations behind Pieczenik’s release of such a video a mere week before the general election. Was he telling the truth in hopes of fomenting civil unrest among the public, to inspire them into taking revolutionary action? Did he just want to reassure the public that they had allies inside the government who were actively trying to prevent another unaccountable Clinton administration? Is the video just imaginary nonsense from a paranoid and delusional mind under duress? Or was this part of some psyop in which he happens to be an expert in?
