I know this guy is persona non grata here but I recently read David Icke's book "...and the truth shall set you free"Well, this is all over the news so anyone that doesn't see it isn't even reading the MSM.
I think the Elite will make a decision to "allow" some of their "own" to be "eaten" by this, in order to protect others that they still find useful.
Also "The Elite" is not one giant monolith but groups of people with competing and yet entangled interests that do not all share the same goals.
Some are family-based (the OLD families), some are more corporate or financially based and others are most run along government/political lines.
But there is a huge cross over between all of them, they also DO allow a FEW people "in" to their "Club" which provides the illusion that their "club" is "open to all" who "work" hard enough (or make "deals" with them).
This generation these people were mostly absorbed from the tech industry (at least the public ones) - but even most of the really "big" ones came from "servant families" (as I've heard them called) the professional folks that are not first-tier players but whose jobs and livelihoods rely on working for them: aka today it is Bill Gates, a few generations ago bootlegger Joe Kennedy (who become a US ambassador).
It varies with the times but the "picking a few to bring in new blood" is pretty consistent, and then the intermarriages (like Chelsea Clinton) seal the deal; even if her father is allowed to fall, she and her children probably will be kept quiet in the background.
Watch who the Obama daughters marry ...even the faceless "billionaire" (like the two that married the daughters of Prince Andrew probably have personal and family connections somewhere).
This does not mean all these people are EVIL, there are some good folks there but the system tends to reward things that are easily turned to evil, and there are a lot of temptations (and control files) along the way.
If you're willing to overlook some unorthodox stuff he does a great job of detailing the links and tie-ins of the Elite and their various organizations
