Wikileaks Emails Show Clinton Insiders “Conspired to Produce an Unaware and Compliant Citizenry”

Yet another document from the treasure trove Wikileaks has been releasing of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails has caused an uproar by appearing to lament the fact the American populace has grown ‘non-compliant.’

In this particular exchange, Bill Ivey — Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts under President Bill Clinton — wrote to Podesta in apprehension Hillary Clinton “is not an entertainer” and thus won’t be able to compete with bombastic reality star Donald Trump.

Ivey queries Podesta how they could “offset” this unexpected flaw in Clinton not being a “celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold.”

But what Ivey states next in this lamentation characteristic of 2016’s surreality has become the subject of hushed debate — because if his words are to be taken literally, they portend a possible methodological collusion to keep Americans docile and submissive — perhaps in the vein of panem et circenses.

Ivey wrote on March 13, 2016, with emphasis added:

“I’m certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not. And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly.”


While it has indeed been posited the presidential debates have devolved to little more than bread and circuses — the ultimate intoxicating distraction for the masses — the tone of Ivey’s email does connote a darker subplot to the now veritably proven rigging affected by the DNC in conjunction with Hillary’s campaign.

And not just the rigging of elections, alone, but any one of several leaks of documents from Guccifer 2.0, Wikileaks, disclosures through Freedom of Information Act requests, FBI Director James Comey’s abrupt announcement not to recommend charges against the former secretary of state, and multiple allegations of fraud stemming from the nascent presidential primary season should — for their blatant evidence of at least something untoward — should by now have convinced the nation this is all pure theater.

Theater, that is, tasked with keeping the distraction infinitely more attention-snatching than even the flagrant corruption, arrogance, ignorance, and general brutishness displayed — quite honestly — from both parties.

But, perhaps in desperation not to see either one of the most despised candidates in decades take a seat in the Oval Office — coupled with the reality-TV spectacle of scandal on display — voters have indeed gone a bit rogue in their outrage.

Ivey bemoans Trump’s literal status as entertainer while apparently ignoring the equally ratings-grabbing specter of Clinton’s past. He wrote:

“Well, we all thought the big problem for our US democracy was Citizens United/Koch Brothers big money in politics. Silly us; turns out that money isn’t all that important if you can conflate entertainment with the electoral process. Trump masters TV, TV so-called news picks up and repeats and repeats to death this opinionated blowhard and his hairbrained ideas, free-floating discontent attaches to a seeming strongman and we’re off and running.”

For those old enough to remember many other elections, this cycle has veered unequivocally toward the bizarre, as Ivey somewhat rhetorically asks Podesta,

“How does this get handled in the general?”

The wise among us could answer simply, boycott the vote — this rotten, broken system is rigged for its own demise. Lead yourself. Don’t be compliant. Subvert and work outside this box intended to sculpt your obedience.

Because, if what Ivey discussed about an unaware and compliant citizenry is to be interpreted in the literal, the more hell and awareness you raise, the better someone will hear you.

  • Scrimshaw

    A boycott wont fix anyrhing. Voting Green or Libertarian will. Why? Because if either party gets 5% of the popular vote, they will qualify as a minor party, of which there are currently none. As a minor parties, they will not be forced to strugle for ballot acsees, and will recive federal matching funds of $10million . That is a HUGE step up from whhere they are now. Look what Gary has done so far. He only has $8million to work with. Starting with $10million will allow the Greens Nd Libertaria s to hit the ground running and achive major name recognition instead having to spend half the race runing up a hill just to get to the starting line. That is how we can undermine the two party system.

    • Razedbywolvs

      Or we can just mock them all endlessly Intel the currency collapses. When they run out your checks to bounce the two party system will leave.

    • While I agree we need a revolution and getting Green’s or Libertarians would change things, for a while, eventually you would end up back where we are today, perhaps in 20 or 30 years. US history has shown this, the nation has gone through this on several occasions in the past.

      If you want a true and permanent solution, look here:



      • Fuzzy Logic

        The venus project is insanity. Technocracy is a dystopian nightmare and in many ways, it is what the global elite is already implementing.

        • So no government, no rule by the few, is dystopian? Better do more research.

    • ThomasJefferson

      Libertarians have refused this and will continue to do so for obvious reasons

    • Tyler

      Since Bush has endorsed Hillary in an all out effort to stop Trump that should tell you something about the dems and reps. The 2 major parties are really just one party of corrupt insiders, at least Trump proves that. When you’ve got Bush and Hillary on the same side that should tell everyone what’s going on.

  • “an unaware and compliant citizenry”

    Umm, no duh! It is not just Hillary, or the Democrats, it is ALL of those that rule that want a dumb and distracted population! You are all living in a Plutocracy, not a Democracy (or Republic)!

    Wow, it’s too bad the “author” of this article has zero reading comprehension. Claire, your stupid ridiculous spin on the actual quote qualifies you to dye your hair blond and join Fox and Friends. What a complete load of bullshit and a testament to the disqualification of this website as reputable.

    • David Major

      What is your interpretation of the quote?

    • Ryan Thorpe

      I took that email as a lamentation of the current political discourse as a whole. While his words can be interpreted rather literally, as-if he or the Democratic party is somehow responsible for an unaware & compliant citizenry, I feel more like it’s a rather incise commentary on the reality of the situation. Most of the citizenry is unaware and compliant and is often swayed by entertainers rather than logic. As he states, it’s a serious problem that we need to think about.

      • Kcgriefs

        I think it’s pretty clear that’s what he’s saying. I don’t really understand how the author arrived at her headline and don’t understand her conclusion, if she even has one.

  • Annette Perry

    Wiki released docs clearly describing a CLINTON and Clinton faction who believe people are easily manipulated, the average person is an idiot and they can be controlled by rhetoric and propaganda. Yet, even after reading this, her supporters keep on drinking the LSD laced koolaide. She is right in her description of her rabid supporters.

    After being confronted with proof that their candidate is a genocidal, chemical war fare use by proxy, terrorist creating, funding and arming lunatic, they still insist on supporting the pseudo Aryan (the delusional, narcissistic self-important) regimes’ candidate. They act more outraged, not about the heinous facts, but that the perpetrators are outed by a man no different than the newsletter pre revolution printers. Men that, in some cases, gave their lives to disseminate the truth about our then tyrannical British ruler. These men, printers of fact, at the time were considered traitors, committing treason against George. To the Patriots and then liberated Americans, they were heroes.

    Bernie was succinct. It is a revolution we MUST win.


    • junktex

      Bernie had little character as he eventually supported the womanoid.Jill Stein and Ron Paul refused to compromise their principles.Bernie also supported the neocons’ wars.

  • Bob Btme

    this is a fascinating exchange FTP! He’s spot on, the Deep State plan has backfired, they wanted a dumbed-down, apathetic population. We’ve been dumbed down alright, to the point of ending a 600-year age of literacy, but the ignnorant population is getting riled up by a primitive race-baiter, and now there aren’t enough smart people left to counter the redneck masses.

    Oh well, get ready to sleep in the bed you made, two-party elite family people.

    btw, there won’t be any help coming from the Greens and Libertarians until we change to a Parliamentary system, like all the other functioning democracies around the world. Of course the aristocrats made sure we’d never see a true representative democracy in the late 1700’s.

    the best we can do now is inhale the legal herb and chill until the 70-foot sea level rise comes in. probably back to warlords and tents at that point.

    “We’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics, and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry.” An unbelievable admission from a New Dem. Some of us figured years ago out the level of collusion of the New Dems with the Republican attempts to do just that, but here it is in black and white.

    “Unawareness remains strong”. An understatement if I ever saw one. But not as strong as it was.

  • lightspeed

    We are one election away from collapsing into Socialists rule and then Communism.

    Its the natural flow of Democratic societies. Thats why we were deliberately set up as a
    Republic but over the past few decades we have blurred the lines between
    the three branches of Govt and have removed powers from the states and
    given them to the federal Govt. we are now more a Democracy than we are
    a Republic and that Democracy is moving swiftly to Socialism. BL – We
    waited too long to stop our collapse. so, unless Trump wins and buys us
    time for a third party to form and the lines to be drawn again and
    states to get the power back we are done.
    I consider Trump to be a necessary evil at this point in time to keep the nation from collapsing under the weight of Liberal induced Socialism.

    • Derek Dammers

      it isn’t a left or right issue, it is more like corporate facsism, Socialism is OK if you are talking about Police dept Fire Dept, and public education.
      We need to restore the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights, and then we can find good solutions down a middle road. It can be argued that our war and military expenditures are more damaging to country financially than food stamps.
      We need to get back to our fundamental rights and then find solutions, even if they are compromises.
      I hate paying for health insurance that does almost nothing, because the deductible is so high. I support gun ownership, and at the same time would like to be able to pay into a health insurance that isn’t run for profit by huge corporations.
      I am sure we would disagree on many things, but we would agree that we should be able to talk and find common ground.
      To focus on blaming either the “left” and or “right”, is non productive. We need both sides of that conversation to come up with good solutions in the middle.

      Using generalizations like liberal, socialist, conservative, corporatist, fascist, are not productive.

  • Kcgriefs

    Who know if the author is just looking for views far better writing thoughts as opposed to reading and understanding ideas but if anyone cares to know what Mr. Ivey meant:

    If these three sentences had appeared in a letter or essay, as opposed to a quick e-mail, they would read like this:

    “And as I’ve mentioned, Washington Republicans, Independents, and Democrats have been quite content to sit quietly as pundits and candidates demean government and elected leaders, quite content to let the study of education fade from our schools, and all-too comfortable as our citizenry then becomes unaware and compliant. Unawareness remains rampant, but as the Sanders and Trump campaigns demonstrate, compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking…”

    No “master-of-the-universe” conspiracy; just a lament that leaders and policy makers have not been sufficiently attentive to some of the basics that make our democracy great.
