A plan for undermining and infiltrating government, activated by the US Deep state on 9-11

"Continuity of Government" (COG) began as a set of contingency plans in case the US government was decapitated by a nuclear attack. Later it was modified by the Reagan administration[1][2] to handle other emergency scenarios. Whitney Webb summarised the project by noting that "It exists solely to keep the current system in place, regardless of the cost."[3] Peter Dale Scott termed the name Orwellian, since it plans a radical change of government, away from democracy.


Scott identifies several threads leading into CoG planing:

Disease control might be added, beginning with the 1978's flu vaccination advertising and the 1980's AIDS campaign.


  • 1980s: Once in office, Ronald Reagan, William Casey and (then vice president) G.W.Bush initiated emergency planing, building from the Garden Plot plan:
    • suspension of the constitution,
    • turning control of the government over to FEMA,
    • declaration of martial law,
    • surveillance of political dissenters and
    • building of detention camps in case of an unspecified emergency.

A state of emergency solves the problem by a) bypassing Congress and b) convincing the population of the necessity for decisive action.

  • This latter stage of CoG planning was worked on in secret by members of the US deep state, including Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, even when they were not in the US government. It brought together emergency planning from different fields: catastrophes, epidemics, bio weapons and other possible attacks. The Cheney Doctrine stated, that if the probability of such a scenario is 1% - America must preemtively act to prevent it from happening. 9-11 was one such scenario.


The COG plans were partly activated on September 11, 2001. A characteristic of CoG planing is apparently that it is designed to co-exist with a constitutional government. This 'stealth mode' can be recognized in the statement from Event 201:

“It's important that the UN and WHO remain very clear, but when they challenge governments directly, they often get into this issue of sovereignty. (...) I think it's really critical to think about soft power influence, which is other influentials, who can call up the head of state, or powerful constituencies within those countries. We've seen this in the context of mobilizing religious leaders in the context of polio, or specific business leaders where you can soften perhaps a very hard line from government through less more stealthy entry points, rather than trying to punish them (...)”
 (18 October 2019)  [5]

Also, what we are seeing is activation comes in waves, that is from one 'emergency' to the next parts are implemented. However, by the end of the emergency state, the constitution is only partly restored and CoG infrastructure remains in place.


In March 2020, William M. Arkin wrote in Newsweek (a traditional deep state conduit) about "above-Top Secret contingency plans already exist for what the military is supposed to do if huge swaths of the executive branch or even Congress and the Supreme Court were disabled, and all the Constitutional successors are incapacitated. Standby orders were issued in February to ready these plans, not just to protect Washington but also to prepare for the possibility of some form of martial law.[6]

According to documents and interviews with anonymous military experts, the various plans – codenamed Octagon, Freejack and Zodiac – are the underground laws to ensure government continuity. They are so secret that under these extraordinary plans, "devolution" could circumvent the normal Constitutional provisions for government succession, and military commanders could be placed in control around America. The disaster scenarios being contemplate included the possibility of widespread domestic violence as a result of food shortages. The missions fell under three larger contingency plans:

  • CONPLAN 3400, or the military's plan for "homeland defense," if America itself is a battlefield.
  • CONPLAN 3500, "defense support of civil authorities," where the military assists in an emergency short of armed attack on the nation.
  • CONPLAN 3600, military operations in the National Capital Region and continuation of government, under which the most-secret plans to support continuity are nested.
