Preview, The Fourth Branch of Government

…After four days of research and meetings in DC during 2020; amid a town that was serendipitously shut down due to COVID; I found a letter slid under the door of my nearly empty hotel room with an introduction of sorts.  The subsequent discussions were perhaps the most important. After hours of specific questions and answers on specific examples I realized why our nation is in this mess.  That is when I discovered the fourth and superseding branch of government, the Intelligence Branch.

The intelligence branch is an independent functioning branch of government, it is no longer a subsidiary set of agencies within the executive branch as most would think.  To understand the intelligence branch we need to drop the elementary school civics class outlook about three coequal branches of government, and replace it with the modern system that has created itself.

The intelligence branch functions, much like the State Dept, through a unique system of public-private partnerships that support it.  The Big Tech industry collaboration with intelligence operatives is part of that functioning; almost like an NGO.  However, the process is much more important than most would think.  There are actual people making decisions inside this little-known branch of government that impact every facet of our lives.
