Trump and the Deep State
By Dr. Robert Owens
Words have meaning. A word is a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation that functions as a principal carrier of meaning. Rush Limbaugh is a master of the English language in my opinion on a par with Winston Churchill and is the undisputed American master of quips, labeling, and metaphors.
As if to prove the point, Rush has once again coined a phrase that sums up a cultural phenomenon. He has dubbed those Progressives embedded within the federal bureaucracy the Deep State. This label perfectly describes those protected by the civil service acts as well as those political appointees who might be termed BHO holdovers.
The commentary flowing from the Attila the Hun Chair through the golden microphone recently shines a spotlight on the fact that the Praetorian Guard of the establishment are working overtime to overthrow the results of the recent election.
There is something reminiscent of Yogi Berra’s famous “Déjà vu all over again” in all of this. It reminds me of the last president who was vocal about trying to drain the swamp. Richard Nixon set out to reform the alphabet soup of agencies that supposedly provide the government with intelligence. It turned into a game of who gets who first. The entire Watergate debacle was populated by ex-CIA and ex-FBI agents. The CIA reports were withheld from everyone until the deed had been done, a president overthrown, and everyone involved safely out with the usual federal golden parachute of a plumb pension with a Cadillac package.
To catch lightening in a jar and see how this was all engineered and orchestrated see the seminal book The Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin. This is the only book that tells the other side of the Watergate myth.
If you consume the bilge being belched out by the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC Cartel you would think that our president was attempting to establish a rule by decree imperial presidency. That is what we have had for the last eight years. That is what he was elected to replace with a government that governs as opposed to rule. And that is what the Deep State is trying their best to avoid. A government of the people, by the people, and for the people is as about as far from what we have had as you can get. That is what we voted for. That is what our President is trying to deliver and that is what the preprogrammed, prepaid protestors with their fill-in-the-blank signs are trying to prevent.
However you call it; the Country Party versus the Government Party, the Perpetually Re-elected Versus the Flyover Country, or Them versus Us it all adds up to one thing a nation divided.
Leave it to Rush to coin a name for that twin headed bird of prey, the government party of power, the Fusion Party. These are two gangs of political hacks plundering the producers of this country bound together by their contempt for us and their greed. They are bound and determined that they will not allow any motley collection of voters get between them and their swag.
