The Deep State Wants a Crisis

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Be Prepared for Disaster

The partial government “shutdown” has gone on for a month.  The Deep State is becoming impatient and angry.  Democrats are claiming the people are with them, but that’s not exactly true.  The Deep State is with them.  It is the Deep State that is most affected by this partial shutdown, but the Deep State is also opposed to border walls.  The Deep State is preparing to create a false flag or contrived crisis or a national tragedy that will be used to cause President Trump to sue for peace.  They want it to be ugly.  The Deep State is out for vengeance, and its agents, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-CA,) have every intention of punishing the people of the United States to get their way.  Why do you think she and Adam Schiff-hole had planned to leave the country?  Safely out of the country, whatever happened to the people back home would not affect them.  The Deep State is angry now, and there’s every chance that it’s preparing to lash out.  Now is a time of danger for the country, not because Donald Trump wants to secure our border, but because the Deep State desperately opposes him.

The Democrats know they can scare the American people, thereby pushing them in the direction they need us to go.  The reason it works is because we continue to fall for it.  The specifics of the disaster the Deep State will create really don’t matter.  A terrorist attack?  A financial collapse?  A mass shooting?  A giant disturbance at the border?  Whatever it turns out to be, now that President Trump has shown that he’s not going to buckle, they’re got to find a way to drive him.  Remember that great admission of Rahm Emmanuel: “You should never let a crisis go to waste,” and the Deep State and its DC agents are more than happy to create the crisis.  The Atlantic article is just the basic preparation for this, so they can later claim “we warned you.”

This sort of stage-setting happens in media all the time.  It’s their way of trying to drive the herd.  If they get their way, they may be able to call off their plans, but more often than not, they don’t stop it.  It’s just too easy to cause harm to the American people and to drive them with fear.  Naturally, this is a big, complex, and dangerous world, so things can naturally happen without any Deep State involvement, but when I see the Atlantic running this sort of story, I know it has a point, and an audience, and the purpose is as I’ve described.  Don’t fall for it.

Pelosi could end this shutdown any time she likes.  Pelosi and her cohorts were willing to fly for a week to overseas locations while 800,000 federal employees go unpaid.  How can she and Adam Schiff-hole and the rest claim to care about the employees?  How can they claim to be negotiating?  It’s frighteningly obvious that Pelosi and her caucus aren’t willing to make a deal.  Some Democrats are getting wobbly, and for the most part, all except the most weaselly RINOs in the Republican caucus seem unusually committed (so far) to standing their ground.  This shutdown is really for all the marbles, and if President Trump doesn’t stand fast this time, he never will, and the Democrats will “run train” on him as insipid freshman Congress-commie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez intoned early last  week.

The Democrats are becoming desperate, and with Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health still in doubt, they’re apt to do anything.  I hope the Secret Service is diligent, because all that stands between a “President Pelosi” and us is the security of our president and vice president, and you know that left-wing nut-jobs seem to multiply these days.  The USSS is on the job vigilantly as their duties require, but I point out for the record that virtually all political assassins in American history were leftist nut-cases, whatever the philosophical leanings of the politician in question.  They are more than willing to overturn self-governance by assassination if they think it’s warranted, and leftist nut-jobs always think it’s warranted.  We mustn’t let them steal the presidency, whether by impeachment or by more grotesque and unlawful means.  The Deep State operators who are now beginning to face justice for their treasonous behavior.  There was no limit to what they would attempt by guile and subterfuge, but now, as the shadow of the hangman’s noose looms into view, they fear the wages of their treason, and whatever limits they might have observed are now completely irrelevant.  They need the crisis now in order to deny the justice they deserve, but if a crisis doesn’t arise on its own, they’re more than happy to provide one.

Paul Ryan Sabotaged Nunes’ Deep State Investigation

Swamp Rat Number One

Long-time readers will be aware that I’ve never thought much of former Speaker Paul Ryan(R-WI,) and that I’ve long thought he was just a Washington DC insider getting wealthy on his connections and position.  Now comes news that confirms what I thought all along: Paul Ryan actually punished Devin Nunes(R-CA) for tipping-off President Trump about the deep-state spying on the Trump campaign that occurred in the last year of the Obama administration.  No wonder then that Paul Ryan retired as Speaker of the House.  If the abuses of the FISC and the FISA process is ever fully disclosed, people like Ryan are going to be caught up in it all.  Ryan and his ilk are the swamp.  It’s no secret that Ryan didn’t want Trump elected, and did everything he could do undermine him.  Sure, he made some campaign appearances apparently on Trump’s behalf, but let’s be blunt: It was all about keeping up appearances.  The real truth came out when it was disclosed by Cleta Mitchell on Lou Dobbs’ show that Ryan punished(!) Nunes by putting him before the ethics committee, and that action stalled Nunes’ investigation for a year:

Do you understand what this really was? Paul Ryan, using his power as Speaker of the House, tied up Devin Nunes in a phony ethics committee investigation because he went to the President to warn him about the plot against him.  While Nunes was out of the picture, the investigation was being stalled and obfuscated.  Only once the ethics committee dispensed with the nonsensical ethics review was Nunes restored as chairman, and by then, he was going to be in a race to get things revealed to the public before the midterms of 2018.

This is sick.  Paul Ryan helped the DC Uni-Party get away with their crimes, if ultimately, they manage to do so.  I like Dan Bongino’s term for insider, DC Republicans: “Swamp Rats.”  Paul Ryan is all of that and more.  I wonder how many other swamp rats are among the Republicans who “retired” in 2018. They’ve been helping Obama’s people avoid justice because they’re owed justice too.  President Trump had better focus some of his energies on cleaning up the DC swamp before it swallows him whole.

The War on America

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

america_burning_ft

There have been a number of considerable turning points in American history, and I believe we have reached another.  After 9/11, one of the conclusions of the Commission set up to investigate the attack concluded, among other things, that one of the reasons the attackers had been successful is that while through the 1990s, al-Qaeda had been in an openly-declared war against the United States, for the most part, our government had conducted itself as though no war existed, taking little action against al-Qaeda despite a ratcheting escalation against our nation, with attacks at the Kobar Towers, The USS Cole, the embassies that came under attack in Africa, and numerous other less infamous attacks.  The critique of the 9/11 Commission on this point was correct, and in many ways, it should have served as a warning that history provides a nation for its future remembrance and consideration, but it seems the lesson is lost on our people and our politicians.  As bad as al-Qaeda or ISIS may be, and as mortifying as their campaign of terrorism and murderous intentions may be, I believe we now face a more virulent threat, one that threatens to destroy not only people and planes and buildings, but America itself.  Here, I do not mean “the United States,” but instead the very idea that is and has been “America,” writ large across history’s pages.  Most frightening of all, it seems too many Americans are blissfully unaware, but what we now face is an irrational enemy that rivals al-Qaeda in their evil intentions, and possesses one significant advantage in its war against us:  They are of us. They are among us.  They are everywhere around you, and their hatred of America is no less sincere, and no less vengeful.  Ladies and gentlemen, we are in a war undeclared in words, but a war nevertheless affirmed by their actions, and it is a war on everything we love. We must adopt the appropriate mindset.

I have cited here before the amazing and simultaneously terrifying similarities between the radical left and militant Islam.  In terms of the peculiarities of their respective grievances with America, it would seem at least superficially distinct, but upon closer examination, one begins to note that in truth, there are very few differences that amount to much.  One might argue, for instance, that the radical left supports extended special rights and protections for homosexuals, whereas militant Islam seems to be most comfortable when heaving homosexuals from rooftops, such that one would never think that the two groups could have much in common, but I beg you reconsider.  For the radical left, homosexuals are just another pressure group in their endless war of identity politics. The “LGBTQ community” is merely another vehicle for the advance of their deepest socio-political ambitions, which care not in the least for the actual people one whose behalf they claim to advocate.  Note instead that in a choice between supporting militant Islam and conservative Americans, the left gleefully chooses the former, since the latter is their true enemy.

In the same way, militant Islamists would seem to share no particular affinity for leftists, until you consider their ruling philosophy.  It is true that while the left is generally secularist in its thinking, and militant Islam is thoroughly religious on its face, both seek the same basic union: Leftists desire the aggregation of all power and law under a secular government, removing all individual discretion of any kind, including thought or expression, while Islamists seek to remove all obstacles to a theocracy that likewise eschews any notion of the individual human being.  Both claim the supremacy of their respective goals;  to carry out either ultimate plans requires the forceful subsumption of all human discretion under their immediate martial control.  In theory, this distinction between the secular and religious would seem a broad difference, but in practice, it requires the same ultimate series of oppressive undertakings, requiring the absolute suppression of the individual in any personal dimension.

We have arrived in a state of our culture in which the more committed radical leftists now take up arms to carry out their own sort of Jihad against Republican legislators.  What makes this different from the parade of political assassins of the left in times gone by is that here, the Jihadist didn’t care so much about a particular target, but was instead motivated by extraordinary hatred against the core ideas of America.  He shot Congressman Scalise, but Scalise wasn’t a specific target, except inasmuch as he happened to be a Republican.  What signals to me the onset of the open war against America is not merely the attack waged by this leftist goon, but instead the disgusting, despicable reaction of the whole leftist media and political establishment that immediately set out to justify and rationalize the attack, turning to blaming the victims of the attack, intimating that Scalise(and all Republicans) deserve what they get.

At the same time, the radical left, which is now nearly the whole body and appendages of the mainstream media and the government bureaucracy are now aligned to destroy President Donald Trump.  As you will have known, I am not Trump’s greatest advocate, but he is after all the duly elected President of the United States, is qualified to hold that office, and he seems to be setting about fulfilling his duties despite my sometimes significant disagreements with his policy preferences.  This circumstance is wholly unacceptable to the virulent radical left.  They will remove him from office, one way or the other, and indeed, any Republican who would follow him, not because he is all that far from the more moderate folk in their political party, but because he is of the opposition, and that he might manage a mildly conservative thing or two, and reverse some parts of the drive toward their ultimate goal: The complete subjugation of any remaining philosophically American people, and the unrelenting demolition of the underlying idea that had been Americanism.

The war being conducted against Trump is spawned of the radical left’s stranglehold on the mass media(not merely the news media,) and the stranglehold they have on the bureaucracy that is the deep state.  They are coordinating to destroy him, as evidenced and typified by Comey’s leak to his friend, and by the official state as made plain by the unmasking of Michael Flynn and unknown (as yet) others in and around the Trump campaign and administration.  None of this is accidental, and it all has the same underlying purpose: De-legitimize Trump in preparation for removing him from office, legally if possible, forcefully if they can provoke it among one of their more violent lunatics, or by political destruction in 2020 if nothing else succeeds.  They have the whole of the mass media, the news, and the entire extended welfare state and security bureaucracy of the government at their immediate disposal, and while Trump clearly knows he’s under attack, I don’t think he’s quite yet grasped how thorough his challenges are, or how even to begin fighting for his own survival.

This sickening, depraved assault on the Trump presidency is really just an extension of the radical left’s war on us.  He’s actually a proxy for the obstacle we present the left in their war on America and Americanism.  What Trump must now do, and I hope someone close to him will prevail upon him to recognize it, is to defend himself and the country with all the power of the presidency, by every available means.  Trump could be creative and intelligent in this respect, but he must find the right sort of strategic and tactical thinkers to carry it out. The executive branch is gigantic, and most agencies and departments of the US Federal Government fall under the President’s direct control.  If Trump wishes to win this war, he must begin where his power is strongest under our constitutional system, and that means making an all-out war against the bureaucracy and its innumerable hangers-on.

Hiring freezes are nice, but that’s barely a pimple on the behemoth’s backside.  His watchwords should be: “Reorganize and restructure.” At present, the bureaucracy of the whole Federal Government is structured in a manner optimal to its growth and further aggregation of power.  It is staffed with people who are most frequently hostile to the idea that is America, and the people throughout the country who still cling stubbornly to those ideals.  More, Trump is in a position to use the bureaucracy’s own arguments to demolish it.  Trump can do something none have ever dared to do before, and sweep out so much of the Federal leviathan.  You might ask how Trump could accomplish this. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Move whole departments and their headquarters of the Federal Government out of Washington DC and its immediate surrounds, justifying it as an example of trying to get all the nation’s most critical eggs out of the same vulnerable basket
  • Eliminate whole sections and sub-departments of various agencies on the basis of a “green” movement, trying to make the federal government more environmentally friendly by reducing its size and carbon footprint.
  • Instruct the bureaucracy to release Obama era working papers, various and sundry studies, and all manner of leftist undertaking all in the name of open, honest, and transparent government.  Consider even a campaign of declassifying information where it has no further relevance to national security
  • Replace every bureaucrat above the rank of janitor, driving them off with new policies justified in various ways, and removing perquisites where they exist.  Take away government-issued vehicles and issue bicycles. Take away work-owned cellular phones from all but the absolutely most critical personnel as a cost-saving measure.
  • Similarly, eliminate Internet access as both a security measure and a cost-saving measure except for those whose jobs absolutely require it.

Obviously, this is far from an exhaustive list, but you can let your imagination run away a little bit with these sorts of approaches. There’s no end to the ways in which the bureaucracy can be brought to heel, but it’s time, finally, for Trump to begin that job in earnest, if not as a purely utilitarian approach to government reform, then at least as a matter of his(and our) defense.

Donald Trump needs to recognize that the radical left is at war with America every bit as zealously as are al-Qaeda and ISIS.  Even now, their more virulently maniacal members are being motivated to real attacks and real violence against Americans and Americanism.  For precisely the same reason they help to cover up militant Islamists’ attacks in the media, and with the same undeniable political agenda, their intention is to conceal this war against America and Americans as long as possible.  The time is coming when this war may enter a new and more dangerous phase, when the violence will become increasingly routine and more accepted in the mass media, and if you watch what is happening in Europe with militant Islam, you begin to grasp what is afoot for America, now under attack by radical leftists.  Trump is the only person in a position in our government to openly oppose all of this, and while he may be active on Twitter, it’s time for him to become more activist in his defense and defense of the Republic.  After eight long years of a president openly hostile to America and Americans, and a media all too willing to redefine even what those words mean on his behalf, it’s time for President Trump to live up to his “America First” proclamation.  He’ll need our support if he’s to succeed, but first, it’s time for him to strike back, and the power of the presidency is a very nearly unlimited weapon in the fight against the colossus that is the Federal bureaucracy.

One might ask how going after the bureaucracy will stanch the radical left’s war on America, but the truth is that initially, it will cause them to react somewhat more reflexively and perhaps violently to the change, but if they are permitted to fester longer, it strengthens them, and it offers them comfort. The Federal government is their “safe space,” and it’s time to pull that particular rug from beneath them. Every time the deep state launches an attack on Trump or his administration, and each time some mad-cap leftist carries out an attack against peaceful Republicans, the virulent left is heartened. To win this war, Trump is going to need to break their spirit, and hearten the actual Americans who remain among us.  Taking on the bureaucracy is entirely within his constitutional scope.  Delaying this a moment longer is merely to yield more ground to an unrelenting, irrational evil.   When Trump pointed out that the news media are effectively an enemy of the people, he was right, and perhaps much more so than simplistic evaluations of his more bombastic proclamations reveal, but also, I fear, more than he knew at the time.  It isn’t just the media, however.  Specifically, it’s the radical leftist media, a near hegemony that is in league with the deep state, and indeed, the entire Washington DC establishment.

President Trump doesn’t need to openly declare war against the left, at least initially.  What this war against America requires is a substantive response, and that response should come in the form of a complete demolition of the deep state bureaucracy, shamelessly and tirelessly using the full palette of presidential powers contemplated by our constitution as the chief executive presiding over the executive branch. He won’t need to declare it, because the leftists will scream at the tops of their shrill little voices, and the remnant of America will understand the source of the noise, and be heartened.  It’s a war, and we ought to have such lesser skirmishes while it’s still possible in order to preclude the many deeper tragedies the left will beget if unopposed.  There is still time to save America, and it’s time for President Trump to launch the counteroffensive, as only the President has the authority to do.  If the left is not stopped soon, the disasters that will be visited upon the shrinking remnant of America will be more thorough than those that either al-Qaeda or ISIS can begin to realize. The radical left is every bit as dangerous as the militant element of Islam, and it’s time to do something about it.
