Trump’s Unintended Consequences: The Unmasking of the Deep State

The term “Deep State” unleashes many paranoid fantasies. Movies and spy stories abound about the existence of dark, nefarious forces from our government aligned against us. But as Joseph Heller once wrote, “Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.” One of the more disturbing revelations after Trump’s win was finding that these dark forces not only exist, but are powerful and seemingly out of control.

    The deep state isn’t just government bureaucrats and their agencies but also elements of the private sector that cooperate and routinely exchange personnel and receive funding from the government.
    Do you really think Google ISN’T part of the deep state too every bit as much as the NSA that relies upon them?

      Looking at my haircut which I got five hundred miles away.
      How’d I get so fucking grey?

        I suddenly went grey in my late 30’s.
        Sucks MUCHO.

          I’m going gray now, but I’m in my 70s.

            At least you still have hair!

            In my 60s and am starting. I comfort myself that I have LOTS of hair and it’ll look cool when it’s white. I’m going for the “Moses” look when I’m really old, like Leon Russell!

          Don’t mind going grey.
          Got my wife and kids.

          ALL the hair on the head of one of my three brothers turned completely WHITE when he turned 40. and it only took a few weeks.

          I was salt and pepper by 25, 80% grey by 40.

        Take a deep breath. Where precisely are you greying? All over? Just at the temples? I ask this because at about your age I suddenly developed very grey temples – seemingly overnight. I freaked! It was all I could see for about three months. Fact is, it stopped there for another 25 years. I am only now finding grey hairs elsewhere in my blond mane. 😉

        you get used to it

        I tried shaving my head for a while

        Bad idea

        When I finally grew my hair back in there was less hair

  • The ZOA study on McMaster is completed: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/09/exclusive-zionist-organization-of-america-analysis-determines-mcmaster-hostile-to-trump-calls-for-reassignment/

    “General McMaster’s record during these past few months can only lead to the conclusion that McMaster is opposed to President Trump’s basic policy positions on Israel, Iran, and Islamist terror. General McMaster is not the appropriate person to serve the Trump White House as top national security adviser. The ZOA strongly recommends that General McMaster be reassigned to a different role in this administration, unrelated to these critical issues.”

      I think President Trump has strategic reasons for keeping him around.

      • Meaning what? What reasons, for instance?

          I think he’s using him to feed false leaks to ferret out his enemies.

      • terrence22

        I hope so

      • WalterBannon

        Like either he is senile or he is Trump the betrayer.

    • WalterBannon

      I think trump should send McMaster over on a fact finding mission to Iraq.

      Give him a rifle and a jeep and tell him to go embed himself with ISIS and get the inside picture.

    Seems time to stop dancing around “there is a deep state” and actually start to name names. Just saying “there is” is insufficient. It’s time to go with “Here is:
