I do investigating reporting on my website.

Concerned American Citizens send me tips, I received one the first week in Nov 2016, about a FOURTH SECRET POWER EMBEDDED in the US Government.

WHAT THE HELL IS THE FOURTH SECRET POWER IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT?

In the U.S. Constitution there are only THREE  separate powers of Government

ONE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE EMBODIED IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS SEPARATION OF POWERS. … EACH OF THE THREE GOVERNMENTAL BRANCHES, LEGISLATIVE, EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL, “CHECKS” THE POWERS OF THE OTHER BRANCHES TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINCIPAL POWERS OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE NOT CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF ANY SINGLE BRANCH.

I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching, reading, documenting and critically thinking (connecting the dots) and there is only one fourth secret power embedded in the US Government, that fits the criteria.

ARE THE 7000 (SES) SENIOR CAREER UNTOUCHABLE  EXECUTIVES IN CIVIL SERVICE, TRAINED AND PROVIDED BY (SES) THAT OPERATES AND OVERSEE NEARLY EVERY GOVERNMENT ACTIVITY IN APPROXIMATELY 75 FEDERAL AGENCIES.

Just saying….THE KGB… was originally designed in March 1954  to be a state security committee and was attached to the Council of Ministers.
