Yesterday We Witnessed the Deep State Fighting Back Against Trump

ELDER PATRIOT – Last week we discussed the Deep State, the permanent government of 22,000,000 federal, state and local employees the majority of whom will be fighting Donald Trump tooth and nail to protect the status quo.

“The term “Deep State” refers to the complex of bureaucrats, technocrats, and plutocrats that likes things just the way they are and wants to keep them like that—elections be damned…the Deep State has its own political consciousness, and it aims to survive any change of government with its collective will—and self-interest—fully intact.” – Virgil writing for Breitbart

The Deep State was on full display at yesterday’s Senate intelligence hearing where it did its best to continue conflating the hacking of John Podesta’s emails and the DNC with the wholly unsubstantiated claim that the Russians hacked our elections. The intention, of course, was to continue building the narrative that somehow the Russians altered the vote totals and so Donald Trump was illegitimately elected.

Under questioning from Sen. Tom Cotton, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper was forced to admit that he had no evidence that Russia changed the results of the election because they had successfully hacked even a single voting machine.

This exchange between Sen. Cotton and DNI Clapper was especially telling:

Cotton:  Director Clapper, our intelligence community says quote, “it would be extremely difficult for someone including a nation state actor to alter actual ballot counts or election results by cyber attacks or intrusion,” end quote.  And you stated that earlier today that we have no evidence that vote tallies were altered or manipulated in any way?

Clapper:  That’s correct.

Then Cotton pursued what possible motive Putin could’ve had for preferring Donald Trump to be our president rather than Hillary Clinton, a narrative that Clinton herself and the MSEM pushed heavily during the campaign and that the MSEM continues to trumpet with the help of Senators McCain and Graham as well as highly placed Democrats.

Cotton:  Donald Trump has proposed to increase our defense budget, to accelerate

Nuclear modernization, to accelerate ballistic missile defenses, and to expand and

accelerate oil and gas production which would obviously harm Russia’s economy.  Hillary Clinton opposed or at least was not as enthusiastic about all those measures. Would each of those put the United States in a stronger strategic position against Russia?

Clapper:  Certainly, uh, anything we do to enhance our military capabilities, uh, would be absolutely.

Cotton:  So there is some contrary evidence despite what the media speculates that perhaps Donald Trump is not the best candidate for Russia.

Homina, homina.  Game, set, and match.  Without any apparent motive why would Russian President Vladimir Putin dedicate significant resources to helping Trump get elected especially when he knew that any interference from his government would trigger a nuclear war had Hillary won.  And, like every astute political observer, he fully expected Clinton to win the election.

Regardless, three hours of senate testimony will yield sufficient sound bites for the MSEM to maintain the “Russian hacking” lie.

The DNI is a political appointee who owes his allegiance to both the truth and the person who appointed him.  With a disingenuous president like Barack Obama, that can be a tightrope that is difficult to walk. 

That explains the three-hour dance Clapper performed yesterday.  It also explains why Clapper’s report only suggested that Russia could’ve been the entity that hacked the DNC and John Podesta’s emails.  The report was long on innuendo but short on facts and even contained a disclaimer to that effect at the top of page one.

This is not the first time that Clapper came before the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and similarly sought to obfuscate the truth and mislead the committee’s members. 

The Lie

On March 12th, 2013, during a United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing, Senator Ron Wyden asked Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper the following question:

“Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

Director Clapper responded “No, sir.”

Incredulously, Senator Wyden asked, “It does not?”

Director Clapper responded “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertantly perhaps collect, but not wittingly.”

So that he would be prepared to answer, Senator Wyden gave these questions to Director Clapper’s office a day in advance of the hearing. Upon the hearing’s completion, he also gave the Director a chance to amend his answer. He opted not to do so.

The Revelations

On June 6th, 2013, whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed to the world that the NSA was engaged in a secret program to collect tens of millions of Americans’ phone call records. Further revelations would unveil NSA programs collecting Americans’ web browsing histories, chat logs, email usage and even their physical locations.

The NSA had been collecting data on hundreds of millions of innocent Americans, and continues to do so.

Finally forced to acknowledge his remarks as “erroneous”, Director Clapper claimed that he “misunderstood” the question (which he had been sent a day in advance) and that he had simply “forgotten” the relevant section of the Patriot Act covering these programs.

Clapper has proven to be a political hack who will reflexively protect the Deep State to the point of perjuring himself. 

For the time being accusations of Russian hacking remains independent of the accusations that Donald Trump is a fascist who must be stopped even before he assumes office if possible, but it will remain separate only for the time being.  The mainstream establishment media (MSEM) and Trump’s most powerful enemies in Congress – Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, John McCain – will soon begin building a case for the impeachment of the new president predicated on Trump being illegitimately elected coupled with his alleged tendency towards fascism.

Do not believe for a minute that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell will defend Trump in any significant way, either.  They are political hacks whose fingers are always in the air to determine which way the political winds are blowing.

What we are witnessing is the Deep State fighting for self-preservation.  All of the Soros-Democracy Alliance-Democratic Party-MSEM – inspired rioting was only a prelude to the real battle that is brewing between Trump and the Deep State, aka The Swamp.

This is all being orchestrated because Donald Trump is coming to Washington with a mandate to return the government to We the People and everything he has done since the election suggests he is intent on doing exactly that.  And, that is not acceptable to the Deep State.

Unlike past presidents who merely played musical chairs by appointing political hacks, to lead the various departments of government, establishment regulars who had previously proven their allegiance to the Deep State, Trump’s nominees to date signal that he truly intends to change Washington’s business as usual practices.

Trump, as presidents before him are empowered to do, will be making at least 5,000 appointments to head the various departments and agencies that constitute the Deep State.  They are expected to streamline and redirect the departments they are appointed to lead and that likely means that many other long-time political operatives placed deep inside these various agencies will be replaced, terminated, or neutered, as well.

Essentially, the case is being constructed so that when Trump attempts to restore the proper purpose to the departments and agencies that will fall under his control both Trump and his appointees will be attacked by members of Congress, who are already aligned against Trump, relying on the premise that Trump is installing a fascist regime dedicated only to Trump.  Expect the MSEM to echo this ad nausea until it takes root in the psyche of enough Americans that impeachment proceedings can be initiated.

The truth is Trump was elected to clean the fascists out of power and, like every argument the Left makes, they are projecting their own sins on those who dare threaten them.

HERE Is WHAT WILL HAPPEN If The DEEP STATE TAKES DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP & It’s NOT PRETTY … FOR THEM “The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson ELDER PATRIOT – Corrupt politicians ignore Jefferson’s directive to their own detriment. It’s no longer political, it’s personal. Americans have had their eyes opened by the ascension of Donald Trump and no amount of leftwing money can put the Freedom Movement genie back in the bottle. Conservative Senator Ted Cruz made that observation after reviewing the results of the 2016 elections and the expectations of the voters. Cruz, who had the most high profile personality clash with Donald Trump during the Republican primary process nevertheless embraced Trump’s America First agenda and said, “If we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets. And I think quite rightly.” Candidate Trump promised many things – border control, lower taxes, fairer trade relations, a balanced budget, healthcare that puts the people first not the government, safer communities, and – to the extent possible – an end to foreign wars. What, among those promises, should any Republican, nay any American, have a problem with? After four months without a single legislative achievement, Congressional and Senatorial Republicans – notably John McCain, Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham – have joined the Democrats in investigating President Trump absent a single shred of evidence that an underlying crime has been committed. So, what gives? Well, there was one additional promise that Trump made on his way to the White House that has some Republicans joining with Democrats and quaking in their boots, Trump’s promise to “Drain the Swamp.” As we reported yesterday, “An F.B.I. agent with ‘intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton case’ told us that they uncovered evidence of such massive corruption that the agents involved realized that damned near the entire government could be brought down.” The criminal co-conspirators in both parties realized almost immediately that the new sheriff wasn’t interested in joining them in the swamp so they launched, what can only be characterized as, a coup attempt. Democrats are well schooled in such things probably because of their close alliance with Marxist regimes that can only gain power by seizing it through bloody civil wars. It should be noted that the Democratic Party has already done this once before. One Hundred and Fifty-Seven years ago the Democrats waged a war against the First Republican President Abraham Lincoln for giving Blacks their freedom. That war came at a high price, as many as 700,000 Americans died fighting for what they believe in. To put that in perspective, these casualties exceed the nation’s loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam. Today, Americans are still prepared to fight and die to protect their children’s God-given freedoms. Despite what you are reading and hearing in the mainstream media, they aren’t the leftwing-funded rioters, the pussy hat-wearing feminists, or the cuck bois that cant handle a micro aggression. No, the Americans that back Donald Trump are well armed. Donald Trump’s presidency will move forward politically lest the sixty million patriots who voted for him, that are comprised of the large majority of military voters, police, and NRA members, move it forward by force. These patriots are armed, trained, prepared, and have proven their discipline. They have grown disgusted by the corruption in Washington and will do whatever is necessary to make sure Trump’s Freedom Agenda moves forward and under the direction of Donald Trump himself. No amount of fake news based on unsubstantiated charges by unnamed sources is going to change that. The battle lines have been drawn and no amount of finger pointing is going to convince these patriots to let anyone overturn the election results. So why are establishment politicians courting a bloodbath on the streets of America that will also threaten them personally when they could be part of Making America Great Again? It’s because they have been caught red-handed and up to their eyeballs in a worldwide criminal conspiracy that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with defrauding the American taxpayers. And, now that they’ve been caught robbing the world’s largest bank – the U.S. treasury – they have chosen to go out in a blaze of glory rather than try to defend the indefensible at trial. Washington’s criminal elites have chosen to go to war to unseat our duly elected president. It’s time to make our voices heard before this turns very ugly. Buckle your chin strap, America is counting on you. EDITORS NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CALL TO ARMS BUT RATHER AN ANALYSIS OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE DEEP STATES OVERTURNS A DUELY ELECTED PRESIDENT. HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
