Just Whose Coup Is It, Anyway?

From the day that I started to write about globalization 45 years ago, my co-author, the late Professor Antony C. Sutton, drilled into my brain “Follow the money, follow the power.” This has served me well throughout the years.

Today, we must also add, “Follow the DATA, follow the power.” Of course, data is money and it is the addiction of Technocrats everywhere.

Big Tech, which is chock full of hard-core Technocrats, just killed up-and-coming social media power, Parler. First, its apps were dropped on Android and Apple phones and then Amazon abruptly cancelled its data storage/processing contract and summarily terminated all connections.

Gone within hours at the hands of three co-conspirator Big Tech behemoths.

Now, that’s power.

Who has the power to censor the President of the United States from communicating with American citizens and then murder a thriving company like Parler at the same time?

Not Nancy Pelosi. Not Chuck Schumer. Not Adam Schiff. Not Antifa. Not Black Lives Matter. Not Marxists. Not Communists. Not Fascists. Not the United Nations. Not Republicans. Not Anarchists. Not environmental extremists. Not the World Health Organization.

So much for who has the power. You get the point. It’s Big Tech.

What about the money and data?

Google controls 91% of the world’s search engine traffic and over 72% of all smart phone operating systems. Apple controls 27% of all smart phone operating systems and between the two of them, that represents 99% of all smart phones.

Amazon’s AWS service controls no less than 32% of the global cloud market and generated more revenue than the next three largest services combined. AWS is five times larger than Google Cloud.

Market share for all social media has Facebook at 68%, Twitter at 10% and Google’s subsidiary YouTube at just over 4%.

The immensity of data and wealth contained in this small clique of companies boggles the mind. They are literally the giant vampire squid descendants of the Standard Oil monopoly of the 21st century.

With this picture in view, let’s ask who in society represents the tail and who represents the dog?

The Democrats are absolutely certain that Donald Trump and his mad band of MAGA-ites are orchestrating a coup against America. Conversely, the MAGA movement is vehemently certain that the radical leftists and Democrats are orchestrating the coup.

Can both be true at the same time? Is one side wrong and the other correct? Or are both being pitted against each other by some hereto unrecognized third party? Um, like Big Tech?

Here’s the bottom line: Neither Democrats or Republicans tell the Technocrats in Big Tech what to do. During the Trump Administration, Big Tech’s top leaders were repeatedly called before Congress to suffer tongue lashings and threats of anti-trust legislation. Did it change their behavior? Not one whit. In fact, their behavior got even more egregious as they walked out the door.

Big Tech has the money. Big Tech has the data. Big Tech has the technology. Big Tech controls the narrative. Big Tech has the clear intent of micro-managing every conceivable aspect of society. Even worse, Big Tech hates free speech, the First Amendment and the Constitution of our nation.

Now, wrap your mind around this.

Who is the dog? Big Tech. Who is the tail? Everyone else, including politicians, leftists, rightists, centrists, Marxists, Communists, Socialists, etc.

It Is high time to exit the contrived left-right mania and set your eyes squarely upon the real enemy of America – the myriad Technocrats who are neither elected or accountable to anyone except their own Technocrat overlords.

Technocrats in Big Tech are the ones who are killing free speech and the First Amendment. Don’t blame any politician, left or right. Don’t blame the so-called “cancel culture.” Don’t blame anyone else.

The irony of free speech is that it has made possible all human progress throughout the centuries. Conversely, all attempts to stifle free speech proved to be regressive.

Even though there is an air of “progress” surrounding the achievements of Big Tech, their current actions are destructive to liberty and freedom, without which America ceases to be America.

Yes, there is a coup taking place right under our collective nose, but it doesn’t originate with the left or right. This new column of enemy combatants are Technocrats and they out for total control over everything.

Until this is clearly recognized, there will be no victories to preserve our great nation.

Bingo! Very well stated. I concur with your assessment.

Thank you!


Now this is the clear truth but I wonder if these tech giants can fund their own operations or do they still have go cap in hand to those that create money? While a type of symbiotic relationship between the bankers and the tech corp owners we can be certain they are all reading from the same page as all the globalist corporations synthesize into one entity.

Yes ultimately the Banking hegemony finances the whole show.


Yes the bankers are a key part of this ruling elite. John Ward has been saying the same in his blog as he watches the situation in the UK, Europe and the USA from his base in France.

I have been strongly against digital since it appeared in my life around 1990. I have been talking against digital for a long time, but people never gave me the time of day. I guess I had the wrong word. Digital. Big tech is probably what I’ve been so strongly against all along. Still, digital is their technology and without it they wouldn’t have that power, at least not at this level. Or am I getting this wrong?

Timothy Driscoll

I agree thoroughly! However the Technocrats have created a virtual Army that worships them and their tech toys/traps of fun and convenience. I type this while taking a bath. I am guilty too of supporting their dystopian construct, it is a artificial construct that ends when the universe decides to point a C.M.E towards earth and frizzle frys skynet and subnet taking humanity back to the horse and carriage. Mankind refuses to leave the Golden that has been built for it. In the end a Golden cage is still a cage. Only when humanity flies away out of that cage… Read more »


Thank you Mr. Wood.


Let the Global Anti-Globalist Protests begin!  Make sure you read the Atlantic article suggesting the vaccination should be made mandatory at the end of this post.  The goal posts have moved regarding the Gate/mRNA vaccine: from everyone that wants it should have access to, more recently, every human must be forced to get the vaccine. And our new Globalist and Chief, President Biden, seems intent on a forced vaccine agenda . . . as are national leaders throughout the planet. In my “cunt tree”, the United States, we didn’t really have an election. What we actually had was a globalist coup orchestrated… Read more »


Well, it’s not quite this clear-cut. It’s no accident that every move made by Big Tech is decidedly what the Left wants and benefits from. When was the first time or the last time that anything done by Big Tech favored conservative thought!
