“DEEP STATE”…..WHO? …what?

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?  

Does this ‘insider’ mean WITHIN the White House?  Or just around town in important positions?    “Deep State”?   WHERE and WHO ?   We know HOW, we see it day in and day out.

Please read the article linked above and weigh in…..So much is being said by ANONYMOUS lately I’m starting to think there are a thousand CNN and MSNBC and NY TIMES people getting payroll checks written out to ANONYMOUS!

Deep State in the United States…Defined by Wikipedia:

“In the United States the term “deep state” is used in Republican and conservative political messaging to describe a conspiracy theory of influential decision-making bodies believed to be within government who are relatively permanent and whose policies and long-term plans are unaffected by changing administrations. The term is often used in a critical sense vis-à-vis the general electorate to refer to the lack of influence popular democracy has on these institutions and the decisions they make as a shadow government”

So?   How does Trump plan to get RID of them?  Do you believe it’s SO embedded there’s no hope?   It’s clear CNN and MSNBC and other liberal outlets feel protected, supported, covered…….NOTHING STICKS to anybody!  ANONYMOUS is now an important news source!  WHAT THE H……………???

    Deep State — Don’t pretend to know ’bout stuff like that. Too complicated for this ol’ country boy.

    I DOES know, tho, that there be a lotta Arrogance, Anger, Greed, Lust, Envy, Self-Enrichment, and Time-Wastin goin on along the ol’ Potomac.

    I ‘member that wise old guys have been listin those 7 “abominations” in admonitions since about the 2nd century or so.

    Reckon what’s happened is that the entrenched merdistes have been drinkin too mucha that Fool-Aid made with water from The Swamp. Habit formin, and brain stiflin.

    “yawn” at our peril… Unfortunately those who are not political wonks as most of us are, find this as supporting the narrative that Trump is one dangerous man.
    Cognitive dissonance does not let them integrate any new information, but rather only finds information that supports the conclusion that Trump must go.

    Thoughts:
    – No doubt there are people in high levels of government that work against America, probably more for personal gain than some neferious anti-American motivation. There probably are some communists and others working their thing though.
    – Government employee unions will keep most of the people that need to go from being fired. Read that there are people in the White House who are too hard to get rid of for this reason.
    – Deep State could be mostly be a mis-direction pllay to keep as much attention as possible off of the politicians. Oh, it’s not the congress, it’s this invisible group of people that is impossible to get rid of.
    – Agencies like the EPA or Dept of Education, that we don’t elect but who can make laws or rules that heavily affact our daily lives are BS. If the EPA wants to make a law it should be submitted to congress for ratification at least.
    None of this is going to change. Enjoy your life best you can.

  6. Unelected bureaucrats whose career is in government are a dangerous group. When they decide they know better than We the People, we have a shadow government. I think every government employee should be made to take an unannounced polygraph periodically. This would need to be a condition of employment. If you don’t want to accept that condition, work elsewhere. While on the police department we had a procedure in place concerning polygraphs. You can argue about the accuracy of the machine, but you can’t deny the intimidation factor. I took several, and detectives on squads that were susceptible to corruption took monthly polygraphs. I didn’t like taking them, but I understood why it was done.

    Pungent cartoons!! After reading The Russia Hoax I take the deep state much more seriously than before. “It” conspired against law and protocol to excuse serious crimes by a high official and plant suspicion against the only person NOT involved to screen her defects and vent their spleen on he American people. They did this with a cabal of insiders, long time friends and associates who – like most DC insiders – share a common hatred for Mr. trump. They should have all recused themselves for clear and DEEP conflicts of interests, but succeeded largely because of their allies in the media who are committed to the destruction of half of the Republic at any cost.(Lucy cartoon is PERFECT!)

    The New York Times in particular has made yellow journalism great again. I think we could overcome with a truly free and open exchange in the media. People respond to truth more than we think — and this echo chamber knows it, so they cover up like a Minnesota blizzard. It is AMAZING with all this on her side the pre-crowned Hildebeast failed.

    RABBIT TRAIL: George Friedman gave an amazing interview with prager recently. His perspective on the president and our position in the world is worth hearing — so clear. I have it on podcast for anyone who is interested (it’s a subscription so I can’t link here). He liked trumps China policy, e.g., and said why. One gem: a lot of world leaders disliked Obama because he was always telling them what to do. They like Trump because he pretty much leaves them alone.

    MORE. the deep state is promoting and manipulating allies in Antifa and BAM (many of whom are your children’s teachers – thank you AOW for that recent post) to unhinge the state. Why? Can’t say for sure, but it could be a perfect excuse to “take over”, especially with the keepers of order internal and external (police, military) compromised and hamstrung. Here in Soviet monica we can’t even jail a Criminal high on meth who slashed a teenager’s face in the park! And we have an 8-year old missing front teeth and an elderly woman in a long term rehab because the city does not take its protective role seriously enough to bring meaningful pain to electric scooter riders who are endangering the public.

    In AOW’s site above it quotes George Washington’s speech where he mentions Free Masonry. My understanding is they were patriots who formed as a secret organization to protect America from the British during the formation of our country, and most of the signers of the Constitution belonged to it, as well as most Presidents and congressmen subsequently. Many well-known men belonged, even John Wayne. I don’t believe they are as active today because if they were, all this wouldn’t be happening.

    Our problem is that voters never stop to consider the consequences of their presidential choices. Presidential appointees, as we have seen, enter our government through a revolving door. This produces a pendulum effect that works against the interests of the nation and its people. Why? Because rather than pursuing national interests, they work toward achieving ideological agendas, many of these predicated on foreign notions rather than those that are consistent with our own unique national values. Until the American people wake up to this reality, nothing will change.

    Mustang is so right: “never stop to consider the consequences of their presidential choices.” It’s like recently arrived ‘Mexicans’ here who LOVE Mexico … as long as they don’t have to live there. So they want to make here like there. No 2nd stage thinking.

    Obama’s cocky speaking style is all I-knowi-it-all, dismissive of you, while lecturing, lecturing, lecturing and pandering, pandering, pandering. I can only imagine what his Con Law class was like (especially since he shows no sign of understanding the constitution). I was so over him after that “if I had a son he’d look like Trayvon” idiocy. I don’t know how you can watch him.

    Mustang, I’d say there must be a time when Americans MUST reconsider what consequences they want for our country, RIGHT?! !!!

    Baysider , so true….Mexicans come HERE for a better country, then they create and settle in tiny barrios across the cities of this country! WHAT THE……..??? The very good thing I have experienced is how even Mexican children in the schoolyard by me speak English on the playground….Heard a Mexican mother clearly from ‘there’ speaking to her kids the other day, in ENGLISH. On the other hand, a woman I have help around the house here about every six weeks has lived here for 15 years and BARELY speaks or understands English!!! Her children, however, speak well and are excelling in school and the 14 yr old boy hates gangs and wants to make something of himself………..Also, a young girl in their downtown neighborhood was just grazed in two places by bullets….and her girls said to her “We are not going out at night anymore…” So they’re smart kids….this is hopeful!

    MICHAEL MEDVED JUST SLAMMED THE OBAMA SPEECH SO WELL! SAID IT WAS A GREAT SPEECH FOR REPUBLICANS!
    I have to say I don’t 100% agree with him, but I LOVE that he’s not a huge Trump fan himself (of his behavior, that is) and found last night’s Trump speech MUCH better and more effective than Obama’s….Actually, the few seconds I could watch Trump last night, he did say some good stuff without complimenting himself. But Medved says he compared himself to Lincoln; I’m so glad I didn’t see that part.

    Yes, Medved said Obama was WAY too long, way too boring and his CONSTANT CLAIM (and that of Juan Williams and many on the Left) that this great economy is due to HIM, are ludicrous if we look at the stats……he lied quite a bit, but the press isn’t exposing him.

    Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

    The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.

    Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

    I believe the Deep State starts with the entrenched bureaucracy in the government. If you have ever talked to some of these people you will hear the phrase, “I was here when he got elected and I will be here when he is gone”. This means that whatever the elected politicians is not what the bureaucracy wants, the pols are screwed. Republicans do not go out of their way to get these government parasites to vote for them, so you have a ready made army of Deep State actors.

    Let some of these people rise to the top of their departments, and you have someone not only politically smart, but sneaky enough to stay at the top. Think Jim Comey, Mueller, Strozk, Yates, Rosenstein, etc. They all recognize each other and can count on all those bureaucrats to do their bidding.
