You've convinced me. I accept the conspiracy theory

Reader comment on item: [Symposium] What Conservative Historians Are Saying about Trump's First 100 Days
in response to reader comment: The designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization and the "Deep State"

Hi, Dhimminomore

You said, "..all these [think tanks]' aim, and to be blunt, is to make a living and have a job! Nothing about critical examination of the issue at hand and in depth..."

I have to be honest -- if I were in one of those positions, I would probably be the same. Can a person really get excited, about manipulating people? I've held a few government and government-funded jobs; and in every case, it was mostly about doing what I was told to do, and collecting a paycheck.

"The Brookings gets funds from Qatar and Qatar supports the Muslim Brotherhood therefore Brookings supports the Muslim Brotherhood and in turn Brookings lobby politicians and inform the Media that the Muslim Brotherhood should not be designated as a terror group..."

Surprize, surprize!

The only jobs I was really enthusiastic about, were jobs supporting the Christian ministry I belonged to. I thought there was eternal value in it and them; and I became disillusioned when I realized that some of my higher-ups were really just in it to further their careers. On other jobs, I tried to give an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Needless to stay, my life has not been distinguished by successful careers; but I believed I was working unto the Lord (YHVH) and not men, and feel God has amply rewarded me. When I read about all the backstabbing and leaking coming out of Washington, it sickens me; but it's about all one can expect from unmotivated, self-centered people.

It's really sick, when Americans sell themselves to our enemies, like those Brookings lobbyists for Qatar. They're just a subtrefuge away from out-and-out treason, all for personal gain.

"The truth is Adam Smith was correct that people can even sell their mothers in-order to make a living and this is in my humble opinion the Deep State is all about"

Have you seen the movie, "The Grey Zone"? Here's how the Bible puts it:

Hebrews 2:
14] Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
[15] And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

People are basically afraid to die, and will do whatever it takes to keep body and soul together. The only way they can overcome this, is to have a solid hope of a life beyond this. Christianity provides this, with a testimony of Jesus' resurrection. Others may hope for such a thing; but if they don't have a solid assurance, they're basically slaves of their bosses -- even if that boss is the Muslim Brotherhood.

Does this constitute a conspiracy? Yes, I believe it does -- you've convinced me.
