In an interview with Sean Hannity, Trump thanks himself for exposing all the corruptness that has gone on in Washington. And he is right.
Much has now been exposed about how big the swamp really is. It is incredible. But for Trump, would we have confirmed all that? I don’t believe so. They were so good at hiding and covering it that they must have laughed at what they were able to do. They could operate almost openly, in front of us, right below the surface with impunity and yet we could not know or prove the extent.
Of course we knew of the Deep State and would find tidbits later but still never knowing the corruption. We were mocked as nuts. We also knew of Hillary’s plans of a shadow government but that too was dismissed for years as conspiracy.
However, this real incestuous apparatus could then be used on anyone. It happened to be Trump but could have been whoever challenged or exposed it. We were at the tip of the iceberg with Hillary’s server. So close.
Not only were we lied to for years and ridiculed as tin-foil conspiracy nuts but in reality it was bigger, more interconnected even worse than we suggested. (if that was possible)
We had a cabal of government within our government. Still do to some extent though now exposed for the network it is. Wouldn’t anyone rather know that there is such an apparatus than denying one exists?
The politicization and radicalism of government was more less complete with Obama. Then he opened and spread access to all the information in their 17 agencies. It would be hard or impossible to stop such a beast once it was in motion. And using its own power, would be capable of defending itself as a whole. This would not require direct orders from one quarter to another, as it was all of the same radical mindset. Preserving itself and protecting its own would be a top priority. Who could challenge it?
Now we have come full circle. How so? Since Trump became president, the left has asserted all kinds of conspiracies starting right from the election. Funny how as long as Democrats controlled the executive branch, even it alone, they posited that this whole cabal within it was only a figment of imagination. On top of that the Congressional allies concealing and covering it. That didn’t require a majority. The left did not have to control Congress once it was all in place. It operated as designed, with impunity.
The idea Trump had or controlled such an apparatus – a part of the resistance – is ludicrous and complete fantasy. It was aimed at him rather than a tool for him. Though how many times did we hear the Left postulate that Trump was now President and disagrees with his own administration? What nonsense.
When Trump came in he probably had no idea to the extent of the tentacles. Rooting it out would not be easy. The key part of radicalization within the justice department had an essential role. Even as a new administration would take over, DOJ could operate as a rogue resistance to cover for the entire cabal. Some of us saw that dilemma from the beginning. What could be done about it? Enter Jeff Sessions as caretaker for it. He did enough to appear to be working while basically not making waves to disrupt it. So did we really have an Attorney General? No we didn’t. We had Deep State as the default AG running the show. They proved to be a formidable force. Even better if no one threatened its consolidated power or existence.
Of course any Republican president would face such an apparatus. And the Left would continue to deny one exists. How much could it be exposed under any other Republican? We may not know but my guess is not to this level. And the longer it could be denied and ignored, the more power it had.
The elements may still be there but diminished in their stealth capabilities. Now it is forced to operate more in the open. It has all become more transparent than it would have been, not a good thing for it. Their only recourse and defense to this overexposure is to investigate Trump and try to turn any of its power against the president.
So far at least, Trump is winning for having exposed it as what it is. But defeating it is yet another matter. Only it’s not just a conspiracy theory anymore.
