Deep State Rising

Deep State is a Turkish term for the Kamalist Military and bureaucracy cabal that has until recently has been the actual government of Turkey.  The various civilian heads of state while not quite figureheads, were never entirely in charge of things either.  And the military would depose them if they felt that these men had challenged their interests.

I was never given to wild-eyed conspiracy theories about the US Governement.  Too many years in the Green Machine to be scared of it.

But there were certain assumptions on my part that have proven to be groundless.  First and foremost was the assumption of neutrality on the part of government employees.  Sure they had their own politics but they never let that interfere with their jobs.

And there was a time when that was true.  That time was called the 20th Century and it's over.

The Deep State launched an attack on the President Elect of the United States this week and this country will never be the same again.

This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as "Fake News."

Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing -- eager -- to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.

The serious dangers posed by a Trump presidency are numerous and manifest...

But cheering for the CIA and its shadowy allies to unilaterally subvert the U.S. election and impose its own policy dictates on the elected president is both warped and self-destructive. Empowering the very entities that have produced the most shameful atrocities and systemic deceit over the last six decades is desperation of the worst kind. Demanding that evidence-free, anonymous assertions be instantly venerated as Truth -- despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie -- is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality. And casually branding domestic adversaries who refuse to go along as traitors and disloyal foreign operatives is morally bankrupt and certain to backfire on those doing it.


All of these toxic ingredients were on full display yesterday as the Deep State unleashed its tawdriest and most aggressive assault yet on Trump: vesting credibility in and then causing the public disclosure of a completely unvetted and unverified document, compiled by a paid, anonymous operative while he was working for both GOP and Democratic opponents of Trump, accusing Trump of a wide range of crimes, corrupt acts and salacious private conduct. The reaction to all of this illustrates that while the Trump presidency poses grave dangers, so, too, do those who are increasingly unhinged in their flailing, slapdash, and destructive attempts to undermine it.
FOR MONTHS, the CIA, with unprecedented clarity, overtly threw its weight behind Hillary Clinton's candidacy and sought to defeat Donald Trump.


In general, Clinton defended and intended to extend the decadeslong international military order on which the CIA and Pentagon’s preeminence depends, while Trump --- through a still-uncertain mix of instability and extremist conviction -- posed a threat to it.

Whatever one’s views are on those debates, it is the democratic framework -- the presidential election, the confirmation process, congressional leaders, judicial proceedings, citizen activism and protest, civil disobedience -- that should determine how they are resolved. All of those policy disputes were debated out in the open; the public heard them; and Trump won. Nobody should crave the rule of Deep State overlords.

Yet craving Deep State rule is exactly what prominent Democratic operatives and media figures are doing. Any doubt about that is now dispelled.

The only reason this all came to ahead is because Buzzfeed, which wants to be part of the Deep State Club but isn't, ran with the report. This report was just fine for Deep State objectives so long as no one in the general public never saw it.

Everyone was counting on the general belief of,"where there's smoke, there's fire somewhere." CNN knew better than to mention Golden Showers but instead hinted at business malfeasance. Which the briefing did mention long enough to say that there wasn't any.  The rest was just too hilariously stupid to be taken seriously.

The moment this cat got out of the bag, it became obvious how ludicrous the whole thing is.
