Though Mr. Trump has not publicly used the phrase, allies and sympathetic news media outlets have repurposed “deep state” from its formal meaning — a network of civilian and military officials who control or undermine democratically elected governments — to a pejorative meant to accuse civil servants of illegitimacy and political animus.
It is akin to Mr. Trump’s appropriation of “fake news,” a term that originally described rumor mills but one that he has used against any outlet that reports real news unfavorable to his administration.
Much as his use of “fake news” miscasts reporting as lying, “deep state” presents apolitical civil servants as partisan agents. And it mischaracterizes those officials, who seek to defend their place within the system, by presenting them as acting against that system.
ROBERT STEELE: My short Letter to the Editor that will certainly not be published is below.
I worked for the Deep State in the USA, I am intimately familiar with the Deep State, and therefore I have to call you all out as liars and traitors. You are most assuredly part of the Deep State. I managed a global program of paid CIA media assets and I know with absolute certainly from both direct and indirect sources that your newspaper [magazine] is corrupt to the bone. Shame on all of you.
The Deep State consists of the Rothchilds and the Vatican and the Royal Family of the UK at the top, the City of London and Wall Street (and central banks) as the best of the servant class, the various two-party political tyrannies in the UK, US, and elsewhere including the Nordic countries that have lost their integrity in seeking to be active members of NATO, the complicit media and academia as well as complicit labor and religious leaders, the secret intelligence services that are now more or less a form of secret police, and selected military and civilian bureaucrats that have been co-opted by the Deep State in betrayal of their oaths of office.
The New York Times, like the New Yorker, is spinning the :Deep State does not exist” narrative that will simply not hold up now that the public has been awakened by Donald Trump and we Deplorables. I note with interest that the NYT also seek to re-claim “fake news” as pertaining to skeptical alternative media rather themselves. As we all now know, it is the New York Times, the Crap News Network, and others like them that are the “fake news.”
Robert Steele: The Soft Coup Collapses – Blackmail Revealed – What Next? CIA was bluffing, produced no evidence – Russians did not “hack” the election. Is this the beginning of the end of the Deep State in the USA? Can Trump clean house & wage peace?
