One could only be oblivious to the existence and power of the US deep state by blindly ignoring the facts and implications of the following:
- U-2 incident
- JFK's assassination
- RFK's assassination
- MLK's assassination
- OKC bombing
- Senator Paul Wellstone's assassination
- Boston Marathon bombing
- Destruction of Libya
- Destruction of Syria
