| France/Deep state|
|The French deep state, closely collaborating with Supranational Deep State policy since 2001.|
The French deep state has ancient roots, but was reworked post World War 2. As with almost all European countries, Operation Gladio has been of major deep political importance since then. Le Siècle, an organ of the French Deep State was set up in 1944. Deep state milieux such as Le Cercle and the Bilderberg provided the means of closer collaboration with neighbouring deep state groups, paving the way for full scale collaboration in the 21st century after the cover up of 9/11 provided the forge to smelt a single functional deep state.

France has a very aggressive and ruthless foreign policy. One of the main targets is keeping control over the resources in the 'former' French African colonial empire, where France uses all means necessary, including coups, counterfeiting currency, assassinations etc. 
The ancient French Deep State involved the old bourgeois networks, such as the "200 families" that controlled the semi-private Bank of France, and that Socialist Prime minister Edouard Daladier in 1934 said "controlled the existing system and held all honest citizens to ransom".
Early 20th Century
La Cagoule was a French fascist-leaning and anti-communist group that used violence to promote its activities from 1935 to 1941, with many prominent members. They attempted to assassinate Léon Blum, the prime minister in 1936, and tried an aborted coup the night of November 15-16, 1937.
During the Vichy era, large parts of the grand bourgeois became discredited because of their collaborations with the Germans. Le Siècle was set up in 1944, allowing the country's elite to meet for dinner once a month.[Why?][By whom?]
After WW2, power alignments shifted slightly. NATO was a constant influence until the assassination attempt on French President Charles de Gaulle (by the OAS with close ties to Gladio and NATO) France left the alliance in 1966.
During the late 1940s French and US spooks cooperated with the Corsican mafia to crush communist labour unions in Marseilles, in exchange for being allowed to run a heroin smuggling network, the French Connection.
In the early 1950s, Jean Violet set up the Pinay Cercle, which was to become a major supranational deep state milieux. Antoine Pinay was a chairman for some years. The group exerts considerable influence today, and has been important in the development of European Deep state. On 25 September 1952 the first meeting of the European members of the Bilderberg steering committee occurred in Jacques de Nervo's Paris apartment. The first meeting ensued in 1954, and similarly exerts a major influence to this day.
The Organisation armée secrète was a right-wing French dissident paramilitary organization during the Algerian War (1954–1962). The OAS carried out terrorist attacks, including bombings and assassinations, in an attempt to prevent Algeria's independence from French colonial rule. They tried to assassinate president Charles de Gaulle several times, but failed.
President de Gaulle had his own "Committee" consisting of his closest political friends and intelligence officers, in charge of assassinating the President's enemies. The death list of approx. 30 people included independence leadersSekou Touré, Habib Bourguiba (both survived) and Enrico Mattei.
The intelligence service SAC was transformed into De Gaulle's personal tool, combating the Algerian independence movement. Henrik Krüger wrote that when Algeria became independent in 1962, the service was used against his political enemies both at home and abroad, with deaths, corruption, industrial sabotage and election fraud.
Pierre Commin suddenly died aged 51.
The Paris massacre of 1961 occurred on 17 October 1961, during the Algerian War (1954–62). Under orders from the head of the Parisian police, Maurice Papon, the French National Police attacked a demonstration of some 30,000 pro-National Liberation Front (FLN) Algerians and Frenchmen. After 37 years of denial and censorship of the press, in 1998 the French government finally acknowledged 40 deaths, although the real number is several hundred, maybe in the thousands.[Says who?]
Since the end of WW2, the Corsican Mafia had control over large parts of the international opium trade, with assistance from the French intelligence service SDECE. They were pushed out of the market in the 1960s, when the CIA took over.
The Great Oil Sniffer Hoax

The Great Oil Sniffer Hoax was a massive fraud to defraud oil companies, including Elf Aquitaine, perpetrated from 1969-1979. The plotters claimed to have a technology which could sniff oil deposits and so obviate the need for exploratory drilling. It was never properly investigated, suggesting some degree of support from the French deep state. David Teacher suggested that Jean Violet was involved.
In 1970 Ambroise Roux became president of the Compagnie Generale d'Electricite and "the supreme example of the French system whereby a powerful president could not be controlled by boards or by shareholders". An energetic sexual blackmailer, he cultivated relationships with a number of influential people in French society.
Alexandre de Marenches, the head of SDECE, founded the Safari Club which led on to the Supranational deep state. In 1979 Thierry de Montbrial set up the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI), a "national think tank" target of outreach by the IfS.
In 1975 Paul Stehlin, a visitor to the 1973 Bilderberg, died after being hit by a bus. In 1979, French Minister Robert Boulin died in unclear circumstances, officially declared a "suicide". The Boulin family declared that they did not accept the verdict of suicide and began waging a campaign in the press and the courts to re-open the case, which they believed was murder, and the case is still much talked about to this day.
In February 1980 Joseph Fontanet was assassinated.[Why?]
Pierre Bérégovoy supposedly committed suicide in 1993, a month after ceasing to be French Prime Minister, and a year after attending the 1992 Bilderberg at which Peter Carrington moderated a discussion entitled "Remarks of Pierre Bérégovoy, Prime Minister of France".
"War On Terror"
France has suffered various events refered to by commercially-controlled media as "Islamic terrorism", such as the Nice Truck attack". The French government has been uncritical in its support of "counterterrorism" such as the "War On Terror", banning some articles of clothing associated with Islam and limiting freedom of speech. In 2016, an apparent Daesh cell was discovered in Saumur.
Cold War 2.0
|"Conspiracy theory"||“There is in Italy a power which we seldom mention in this House ... I mean the secret societies... It is useless to deny, because it is impossible to conceal, that a great part of Europe — the whole of Italy and France and a great portion of Germany, to say nothing of other countries — is covered with a network of these secret societies, just as the superficies of the earth is now being covered with railroads. And what are their objects? They do not attempt to conceal them. They do not want constitutional government; they do not want ameliorated institutions ... they want to change the tenure of land, to drive out the present owners of the soil and to put an end to ecclesiastical establishments. Some of them may go further...”|
