(National Sentinel) Deep State: It has become quite obvious that there are a number of people within the so-called “deep state” – the intelligence community, various departments and agencies, buried within the massive federal bureaucracy – who quite took offense to President Donald J. Trump’s oft-repeated campaign pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington if he were elected president.
And what’s more, the leaking isn’t being done for anything as noble as “saving the country.” It’s being done for one purpose and one purpose only: To bring down the man who is the biggest threat to members of the careerist, self-sustaining, self-perpetuating federal bureaucracy. These are people who actually believe that, despite never winning an election, they – and not the American people – are the rightful heirs and owners of government.
This conundrum was addressed Wednesday evening by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who notes that the framers’ vision for American government has been completely subjugated by the modern Deep State, which is “strategically” and “illegally” leaking sensitive information, all for maximum political effect:
In a Democracy we’re in charge – not unelected bureaucrats… Once the bureacracy has shoved aside an elected government, they can do it again – and at that point it’s over… democracy is dead.
Tucker proceeded to list several deep state leaks meant specifically to harm Trump and his administration – “beginning with the fact that yesterday’s testimony [by AG Jeff Sessions] took place in large part due to former FBI Director James Comey’s previously leaked suggestion that Sessions may have met with the Russian Ambassador last April during a crowded event at the Mayfower Hotel,” iBankCoin.com reported:
In December unnamed intel sources told the Washington Post that Russia helped Donald Trump win the Presidency. A week later, unnamed senior Intel officials told NBC news that Putin personally was involved in helping Trump win.
In February, current and former American officials released the details of a phone call between incoming National Sec Advisor Mike Flynn and ambassador Kislyak of Russia. [Flynn’s] career and reputation were subsequently destroyed by all of that.
Trump’s private phone call with the President of Mexico– surveilled by American Intelligence and then leaked.
His call with the Aussie PM, same thing…
With Vladimir Putin – again, leaked by the Intel community.
How could this possibly have advanced American National Security interests, which is what they’re supposed to be doing? None of it did – it was entirely political.
And then in March as if to prove this point, a half dozen current and former Intel officials told the NYT that they’d sought to spread classified intel information about the Trump campaign as widely as possible throughout government to ensure it would all eventually leak.
What makes this so vital for the American people? Tucker summarizes with:
In general the public ought to know a lot more about government than it does, but we’re seeing something new here. These are strategic leaks – the release of classified intelligence from people whose job it is to collect and safeguard that intelligence – and in that way it’s an utter perversion of the system. We give enormous power to our intelligence agenices – CIA, NSA, the rest of them. We let them listen to our phone calls, read our email, watch us from satellites. We let them do that so they can keep us safe from foreign threats – not so they can pick our political leaders or devise our policies…
Here is the entire monologue:
