Who will protect us from our protectors? You might have heard this asked before. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? First uttered by the Roman poet Juvenal from his Satires (Satire VI, lines 347–348). Translated today it means, or damn well ought to, “Who will protect us from Deep State?”
I am asked often, “What is the Deep State?” Well, it is not one man or woman and it is damn evil because it comes down to disobedience and treason by many hiding behind official positions & titles. What is worse, they think that they are “patriots” and “doing the right thing” and so they will never stop until wiped out. Basically, the Deep State is where officials, unelected, as my American friends would say, decide that they will follow their own policies and not those directed by the President (who is elected and the commander-in-chief, end of story). Then you find chaos all over the place as they abuse, yes, abuse, the system against whoever they target. I will go as far to say that they are a shadow government with enormous power to undermine policy and ruin lives. To them it is a game without personal consequences. Frankly, the chances of them being punished are not good. It is seldom that a President stands up against the Deep State, very seldom. Now for those that deny Deep State, let us see what former CIA director John E McLaughlin said recently: “Thank God for the ‘Deep State.” He was describing the diplomats and intelligence officers testifying before the latest (Ukraine Rubbish) congressional impeachment inquiry as “people who are doing their duty or responding to a higher call.”
If you ever needed evidence that the Deep State exists that sentence should always come to mind. This was a major admittance in public. They don’t even deny their existence anymore as a “conspiracy” theory. No, it is there and it real and if you read Code Name Mélisse you will hear me say that Deep State murdered my wife as far as I am concerned. There is no forgiveness from my side. Of course, they murdered many millions more. McLaughlin went on to state that the (US, I suppose) intelligence community is “institutionally committed to objectivity and telling the truth.” In this he was supported by John Brennan, the former CIA director under President Barack Obama, a man which most CIA operatives of his era consider to be less than good which is still nice. He is considered and rated by me as the very worst CIA director ever. A man that was promoted for other reasons than competence according to those that served with him.
The McLaughlin & Brennan statements are laughable and yet they received much applause. Intelligence Officials, especially the US variety, lie when they open their mouths and have their own agendas which are not necessarily based on truth. Do I need to mention the Iraqi WMDs’ fiasco again and so many more since then. And Deep State is not only spies but to be found wherever someone has some influence to change policy. That can be an Army member of any rank, a DOJ official and absolutely the Clinton Whitewash Bureau that is under criminal investigation right now for launching the “Collusion with Russia” nonsense against Donald J Trump on political grounds. Mark my words, the Deep State is rattled by Mr Trump. They will do whatever they can to escape justice. I will not be surprised if the assassination of Mr Trump is desired and executed in the future. You will be stupid to believe that Ronald Reagan’s Executive Order 12333, which states, “No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination,” is abided by. No, we only need to look at the drone strikes being moved to the CIA to be classified beyond reporting. Yes, we came a long way from where a President was actually listened to. Now we have leaks, we have outright lies, abuse of power with warrants based on nothing, abuse of law with spurious arrests and court actions designed to break the victim financially, and it is getting worse. The USA became a police state that is as bad as Nazi Germany in this regard.
Of course, in normal times, the admissions of Deep State’s existence would be shocking and all over the news but it is not. Newspapers and Social Media are part of Deep State. One of the most notorious is The New York Times – “The deep state isn't a secret, antidemocratic cabal. It's a collection of public servants looking to guard the Republic against President Trump's excesses” & “Opinion | They Are Not the Resistance. They Are Not a Cabal. They Are Public Servants. Let us now praise these not-silent heroes.”
Yep, whatever. Remember this, who will they come for next? You?
