Supranational deep state.jpg
The supranational deep state is a recognition that the deep state knows no borders, that flags assigned to different political entities are no more meaningful than those political structures are autonomous. In the 21st century, it is a mistake to see deep state groups as fundamentally separate. While still subject to internecine fueds and rivalry, deep state factions work so closely together and have such a common interests that it is a mistake to seem them as truly separate.

The name "deep state" suggests an immediate parallel with nation state, which is not altogether misleading, at least historically, since it is hard for more than one such group to effectively control the key organs of a national government. However, a clear correspondence cannot exist since deep state groups are more loosely defined, interlocking networks which lacking formal definition. The supranational angle is a reflection that the global deep state collaboration eclipses individual national governments and employs a range of methods to manipulate them.


Peter Dale Scott suggests that a key turning point in the development of the international deep state was the success of the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Although partially compromised, their scrutiny of the CIA following the high profile assassinations carried out in the 1960s (e.g. of JFK, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X) was effective enough to introduce monitoring that threatened the CIA's ability to carry out off-the-books black operations. In response, operations were offshored to foreign intelligence agencies, most notably through the Safari Club:

“The complex milieu of Khashoggi, the BCCI, and the Safari Club can be characterized as a supranational deep state, whose organic links to the CIA may have helped consolidate it. It is clear however that decisions taken at this level by the Safari Club and BCCI were in no way guided by the political determinations of those elected to power in Washington.”

The commercially-controlled media, more or less an agent of deep state forces, remains dedicated to the obscuring the key facts that

  1. Most if not all of the so-called "democracies" are in fact no such thing, the public politicians are in fact puppets of deep politicians
  2. These deep politicians have relationships, rivalries and alliances which pay no heed to political borders.

The business of 21st century deep politics knows no political boundaries.


In an unguarded moment, Prince Turki bin Faisal al-Saud remarked to Georgetown University alumni: “In 1976, after the Watergate matters took place here, your intelligence community was literally tied up by Congress. It could not do anything. It could not send spies, it could not write reports, and it could not pay money. In order to compensate for that, a group of countries got together in the hope of fighting Communism and established what was called the Safari Club. The Safari Club included France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Iran.”[2]

Supranational nature

Just as "globalisation" has created multi-national corporations which operate with a significant degree of independence from individual nation states, so too for deep state groups. Peter Dale Scott refered in 2014 to "A Supranational Deep State", noting how their international integration effectively allows deep states to evade even the limited control national governments had in the early 20th century.[3] This is a de facto reversal the public power relationship, a process being codified into international law by the wealth of new supranational treaties being brought in under the banner of free trade.
