The First-Ever ‘Codeword’ Leak

by Porter Stansberry, Casey Research:

Today, we need to share an urgent message with you from our longtime friend, Stansberry Research founder Porter Stansberry. If you’ve never heard of Porter, he’s known for doing some of the most significant work in the financial newsletter business.

What you’re about to read is deeply troubling—and there’s a good chance you won’t believe it. (Even Porter admits he thought it was another conspiracy theory at first.) But the fact is, right now, a secret civil war is being waged in Washington D.C.

Porter just received the terrifying details from one of his confidential sources—the “Metropolitan Man.” This man is one of the most powerful and connected men in the world… He pulls all the levers of power in Washington—completely behind closed doors. Here’s what you need to know…

Today, an emerging story about the secret civil war being waged right now in Washington D.C…

It is about to have a HUGE impact on our country.

Two warnings before we begin…

First, what I know so far is deeply troubling. We’re approaching what will be the most dangerous period in our country’s political history since the Great Depression. What could happen next scares me. But I continue to be optimistic that what will unfold will be great for our country.

Also, I’m certain that you simply won’t believe much of what you’ll read in today’s essay. In fact, until I did my own follow-up research to verify what I could from my sources, I disregarded this story as “political nonsense” or just another D.C. conspiracy theory.

Besides… it was all too horrible to believe. But then… almost everything my sources told me would happen started happening…

• Let’s begin here…

Did you know the U.S. government has a secrecy designation so restricted that virtually nobody – not even lifetime members of the intelligence community – even knows what it’s called? It’s not “TOP SECRET.” It’s way beyond that level.

In late 2009, President Obama created this new level of secrecy inside our government with an executive order (No. 13526) – so Congress never approved it. Administered by the CIA, this new level of secrecy has created a covert government-within-the-government that almost nobody knows and absolutely nobody is monitoring.

If you’ve ever heard the term the “Deep State” – the secret government-within-the-government that actually holds power – then you know why a level of secrecy beyond “top secret” is so important. This new, more restricted level of secrecy was created so that the most powerful leaders of our government could communicate in total isolation.

This level of secrecy is such a closely guarded secret that the name of the program itself is classified – and divulging the name is a crime, punishable by at least 10 years in a secret prison. So this level of security clearance is known only as “codeword.”

• At the highest levels of our D.C. government, only two dozen or so people have codeword clearances…

I learned about this earlier this month. I was invited to lunch with someone who has held that level of security clearance. He told me about the existence of the codeword-level program. This isn’t a rumor. It’s a fact.

For the last 30-plus years, my source has worked for and around the highest levels of our government. He is currently regarded as the president’s most likely choice to become our next Federal Reserve chairman.

Today, however, his clients include the world’s top hedge fund managers and the leaders of America’s biggest corporations. He is, in short, America’s corporate representative of the Deep State.

We call him the “Metropolitan Man.”

We met about a year ago. He reached out to me through a mutual friend – one of the best, young hedge fund managers in New York. He asked me to join him for dinner at the Metropolitan Club in New York, one of the most elite clubs in the United States.

(Legendary banker J.P. Morgan founded the club. It’s where billionaire investor Warren Buffett held his 50th birthday party. And it sits at the southeast corner of Central Park, across from The Plaza Hotel, with a great vista of Columbus Circle.)

At the time, the Metropolitan Man was forecasting correctly that the world’s central bankers and their negative-interest-rate policy were failing… and that they would soon trigger a global run out of paper money and into gold. Over the next several months, gold and gold stocks soared (as you may remember).

• A few days ago, the Metropolitan Man asked to see me again…

He wanted to talk about something he had never seen before in all his years working in the government.

For the first time ever, a codeword-level secret was leaked to the press. Nothing this sensitive has ever been leaked before – ever.

Among senior leaders in D.C., it is widely believed that the director of the CIA himself was responsible for the codeword leak. And the rumor is that this information was then passed to the press through New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s office.

What was leaked?

A codeword secret briefing the CIA produced about a meeting in Trump Tower last December between a Russian ambassador and two senior Trump administration officials – Jared Kushner and Michael Flynn.

When Flynn lied about the meeting to the White House staff, he was fired. But the deeper question is: How did the CIA know about the meeting? How did it know how long the meeting lasted? How did it know exactly what was discussed? And how did that information end up in the hands of a New York Times reporter?

This backstory explains how Trump knows the CIA was spying on Trump Tower. And the counternarratives – Trump’s claim that Obama was spying on him and the Democrats’ claim that Trump is in league with Russia – are the beginning of a serious war. A civil war inside the Deep State itself.

• Reading the newspapers won’t explain how this war is being fought…

They will never publish a clear explanation of the battle lines – or even who is fighting or why. But the outcome of these battles is likely to determine the fate of our economy for the next several decades. Let me explain why… and tell you what this fight is really about…

For the last 40 or so years, the U.S. economy has been built around a model that created vast power in D.C. The model has a few important components.

First, we have a highly “progressive” income tax. That ensures that anyone who makes high wages will pay for the lion’s share of the government’s expenses. Without extremely progressive income tax rates – where about half the country pays nothing and the top 10% pay for roughly 80% – the electorate would never continue to vote for more and more government. But it does, mostly because it doesn’t have to pay for it.

Second, the government has an incredibly powerful regulatory regime in place. This allows D.C. to essentially control vast segments of our economy. Take Wall Street, for example. Who gets to sell a bond or a stock to the public? Nobody the Securities and Exchange Commission doesn’t like (i.e. yours truly). This power results in tremendous amounts of “tribute” – legal fees, fines, and hidden lobbying that flows into D.C. and feeds its economic ecosystem.

And finally… there’s the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and “free” trade. Our country has the ability to export all of the inflation generated by our central bank. This has led to decades of lower and lower interest rates and the government’s ability to borrow essentially endless amounts of money without any serious inflationary consequences.

These three components form the foundations of Washington’s power. Attack any of them and you risk a huge fight with the Deep State. What Trump is doing right now via his border adjustment tax, additional tax reform, and regulatory rollback is targeting all three of them at the same time. If he wins, all of the power that has been consolidated in D.C. over the past 40 years will evaporate.

• Trump has put a metaphorical gun to the head of the Deep State…

And now, the Deep State is fighting back, tooth and nail, to protect the system it has built.

Look at what has happened to the middle class in America over the last 40 years.

Did NAFTA prevent price inflation by allowing America’s consumer economy the luxury of accessing the world’s cheapest labor? Yes, it did. But the flip side was devastating to the entire manufacturing industry in the U.S. And where did the resulting wealth flow? To D.C. and to the top 1% of America’s wealthiest people who were able to access foreign markets and shield the resulting income from America’s tax system.
