Dennis Kucinich: “Deep State Trying To Destroy Trump Presidency”…

Appearing tonight on the Sean Hannity TV show on Fox News, former Ohio democrat congressman Dennis Kucinich states he believes the unelected institutional Washington DC based bureaucratic system known as “deep state” is attempting to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump.

People within Deep State institutions attempting to damage President Trump because he is an existential threat to their interests.

Western Media / Libyan Propaganda (Disturbing Video Refutes State Dept)Understanding The UniParty “DEEP STATE” – During the time in 2011 when political warfare over the debt ceiling was beginning to paralyze the business of governance in Washington, the United States government somehow summoned the resources to overthrow Muammar Ghaddafi’s regime in Libya, and, when the instability created by that coup spilled over into Mali, provide overt and covert assistance to French intervention there.

mccain-in-syriaAt a time when there was heated debate about continuing meat inspections and civilian air traffic control because of the budget crisis, our government was somehow able to commit $115 million to keeping a civil war going in Syria and to pay at least £100m to the United Kingdom’s Government Communications Headquarters to buy influence over and access to that country’s intelligence.

Since 2007, two bridges carrying interstate highways have collapsed due to inadequate maintenance of infrastructure, one killing 13 people. During that same period of time, the government spent $1.7 billion constructing a building in Utah that is the size of 17 football fields.

This mammoth structure is intended to allow the National Security Agency to store a yottabyte of information, the largest numerical designator computer scientists have coined. A yottabyte is equal to 500 quintillion pages of text. Yes, they need that much storage to archive every single trace of your electronic life.

Yes, there is another government concealed behind the one that is visible at either end of Pennsylvania Avenue, a hybrid entity of public and private institutions ruling the country according to consistent patterns in season and out, connected to, but only intermittently controlled by, the visible state whose leaders we choose.

[…] The Deep State does not consist of the entire government. It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street. All these agencies are coordinated by the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council.

Certain key areas of the judiciary belong to the Deep State, such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, whose actions are mysterious even to most members of Congress. Also included are a handful of vital federal trial courts, such as the Eastern District of Virginia and the Southern District of Manhattan, where sensitive proceedings in national security cases are conducted.

The final government component (and possibly last in precedence among the formal branches of government established by the Constitution) is a kind of rump Congress consisting of the congressional leadership and some (but not all) of the members of the defense and intelligence committees.

The rest of Congress, normally so fractious and partisan, is mostly only intermittently aware of the Deep State and when required usually submits to a few well-chosen words from the State’s emissaries.

[T]he Deep State does not consist only of government agencies. What is euphemistically called “private enterprise” is an integral part of its operations. In a special series in The Washington Post called “Top Secret America,” Dana Priest and William K. Arkin described the scope of the privatized Deep State and the degree to which it has metastasized after the September 11 attacks.

There are now 854,000 contract personnel with top-secret clearances — a number greater than that of top-secret-cleared civilian employees of the government. While they work throughout the country and the world, their heavy concentration in and around the Washington suburbs is unmistakable: Since 9/11, 33 facilities for top-secret intelligence have been built or are under construction. Combined, they occupy the floor space of almost three Pentagons — about 17 million square feet.

Seventy percent of the intelligence community’s budget goes to paying contracts. And the membrane between government and industry is highly permeable: The Director of National Intelligence, James R. Clapper, is a former executive of Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the government’s largest intelligence contractors. His predecessor as director, Admiral Mike McConnell, is the current vice chairman of the same company; Booz Allen is 99 percent dependent on government business.

These contractors now set the political and social tone of Washington, just as they are increasingly setting the direction of the country, but they are doing it quietly, their doings unrecorded in the Congressional Record or the Federal Register, and are rarely subject to congressional hearings.

Washington is the most important node of the Deep State that has taken over America, but it is not the only one. Invisible threads of money and ambition connect the town to other nodes. One is Wall Street, which supplies the cash that keeps the political machine quiescent and operating as a diversionary marionette theater.

Should the politicians forget their lines and threaten the status quo, Wall Street floods the town with cash and lawyers to help the hired hands remember their own best interests. The executives of the financial giants even have de facto criminal immunity.

On March 6, 2013, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Eric Holder stated the following: “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy.”

This, from the chief law enforcement officer of a justice system that has practically abolished the constitutional right to trial for poorer defendants charged with certain crimes. It is not too much to say that Wall Street may be the ultimate owner of the Deep State and its strategies, if for no other reason than that it has the money to reward government operatives with a second career that is lucrative beyond the dreams of avarice — certainly beyond the dreams of a salaried government employee.

The corridor between Manhattan and Washington is a well trodden highway for the personalities we have all gotten to know in the period since the massive deregulation of Wall Street: Robert Rubin, Lawrence Summers, Henry Paulson, Timothy Geithner and many others.

Not all the traffic involves persons connected with the purely financial operations of the government: In 2013, General David Petraeus joined KKR (formerly Kohlberg Kravis Roberts) of 9 West 57th Street, New York, a private equity firm with $62.3 billion in assets. KKR specializes in management buyouts and leveraged finance. General Petraeus’ expertise in these areas is unclear. His ability to peddle influence, however, is a known and valued commodity.

Unlike Cincinnatus, the military commanders of the Deep State do not take up the plow once they lay down the sword. Petraeus also obtained a sinecure as a non-resident senior fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard. The Ivy League is, of course, the preferred bleaching tub and charm school of the American oligarchy.

Petraeus and most of the avatars of the Deep State — the White House advisers who urged Obama not to impose compensation limits on Wall Street CEOs, the contractor-connected think tank experts who besought us to “stay the course” in Iraq, the economic gurus who perpetually demonstrate that globalization and deregulation are a blessing that makes us all better off in the long run — are careful to pretend that they have no ideology.

Their preferred pose is that of the politically neutral technocrat offering well considered advice based on profound expertise. That is nonsense. They are deeply dyed in the hue of the official ideology of the governing class, an ideology that is neither specifically Democrat nor Republican.

Domestically, whatever they might privately believe about essentially diversionary social issues such as abortion or gay marriage, they almost invariably believe in the “Washington Consensus”: financialization, outsourcing, privatization, deregulation and the commodifying of labor. Internationally, they espouse 21st-century “American Exceptionalism”: the right and duty of the United States to meddle in every region of the world with coercive diplomacy and boots on the ground (keep reading).

          A friend of mine pointed out, after I told him that the Obama administration rewarded corporations which did his bidding, that Amazon had a commercial out featuring a priest and an Imam.

        this is a pretty big discovery and presents a plausible theory that this is in fact how WaPo is getting at least some of it’s ‘source’ material for their massive “Breaking News” articles.

        Last but not least on this matter, Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeffrey Bezos received a $600-million federal contract with the CIA to create a “government cloud” for records storage and sharing, from which, it appears, massive anti-Trump government leaks of even classified information may be coming.

        It actually makes some sense as all these WaPo ‘sources’ seem to continually get their “facts” wrong re: the reports (ie. that Trump gave “muh Russia!” classified info). WaPo possibly has some type of access to CIA reports (their CIA source), but does not know how to interpret them because of their “TDS”.

        This needs to be brought up to the CIA IG for investigation. Wonder if that brave Intel Committee Congresswoman would be up for making a formal request to the CIA IG to look into this possibility?

          Also, Trey Gowdy coming out and defending Comey in that FOX interview is not helping matters, and is confusing people. As far as I’m concerned, Gowdy just ruined his good reputation by trying to justify James Comey’s actions.

          The ONLY justification Comey could have possibly had for letting HRC off the hook on all counts is that he was threatened or blackmailed to some very extreme extents to do so – and even that does not warrant Gowdy backing him.

            I agree. I think we see why Gowdy dismissed his name from the short list of FBI Director candidates. He admitted as much. He felt the scrutiny would be too intense. That tells me he is compromised in some manner. His defense of Comey’s actions is inexcusable! Then leaving the bomb out there if the people knew what Comey and him knew about Clinton they may be more forgiving of Comey.

            As I said, all of D.C. is compromised to protect their own arses and their very comfortable way of life on the taxpayer’s dime. They are all part of the Deep State. Trump will eventually roll back the curtain and expose the hypocrisy. It may take the people to march with him in his defense as his enemies continue gear up to take him down.

              My understanding it that congressional hearings have no purpose other than to bring light to issues and events for the benefit of the citizenry. I don’t think they can call a grand jury, make an arrest, or anything like that. So to speak, they have no teeth. I think Gowdy tries as hard as he can, but he’s got those limitations, and I think he’s faulted by many unfairly.

            Current acting director McCabe’s wife ran for office in VA and received money from Clinton Foundation/PAC’s.

            Eric Holder is a Clintonista who rose to prominance in Janet Reno’s DOJ (he issued the oreder to send Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba).

    • With the appointment of Robert Mueller to investigate the Trump administration’s alleged ties with Russia, things could take a turn for the worse for certain unnamed Hillary-oriented individuals. Assuming Mueller is a white hat, and I have no reason to believe otherwise, he just might find no evidence indicating illegal activity on the part of the Trump team. However, Mueller may uncover further evidence of wrongdoing on the part of the Dems, Hillary, and their enablers. If so, I suspect Mueller would be limited to recommending an expansion of the investigation before pursuing further leads. Imagine the outrage on the left if this was the case.

      Meanwhile, the MSM seems concerned that the narrative will be put on ice due to the confidentiality of the investigation, assuming no leaks of course. Nothing was more clear regarding the MSM’s concerns than those displayed by the ‘esteemed’ panel on Morning Joe today. Seems they expect a long drawn out affair. They complained about the anticipated delays while Mueller assembled his team, leased secure office space, and obtained the necessary security clearances for his staff. However, the MSNBC Morning Joe bunch declared it was their constitutional right to pursue the investigation, report their progress, and perform an important service keeping the people informed. In other words, they plan to keep the narrative alive at all costs.

      In terms of White House control, the President would benefit from a new Cabinet Secretary of Cyber – capable of restructuring the CIA, NSA, FBI, GIA and the other numerous non-military intelligence operations. True patriot veterans and retirees of these organizations stand ready to serve.

          (a)Original jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall be established by the Attorney General. The Special Counsel will be provided with a specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall also include the authority to investigate and prosecute federal crimes committed in the course of, and with intent to interfere with, the Special Counsel’s investigation, such as perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses; and to conduct appeals arising out of the matter being investigated and/or prosecuted.

          (b)Additional jurisdiction. If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel concludes that additional jurisdiction beyond that specified in his or her original jurisdiction is necessary in order to fully investigate and resolve the matters assigned, or to investigate new matters that come to light in the course of his or her investigation, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General, who will determine whether to include the additional matters within the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction or assign them elsewhere.

          (c)Civil and administrative jurisdiction. If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel determines that administrative remedies, civil sanctions or other governmental action outside the criminal justice system might be appropriate, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General with respect to the appropriate component to take any necessary action. A Special Counsel shall not have civil or administrative authority unless specifically granted such jurisdiction by the Attorney General.

                Now, I want to take this opportunity to give you some advice. Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair. You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted. But you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up. Things will work out just fine.

                Look at the way I’ve been treated lately — (laughter) — especially by the media. No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. (Applause.) I guess that’s why I — thank you. I guess that’s why we won.

                Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in. Don’t back down. And never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. And the more righteous your right, the more opposition that you will face.

        When Dennis Kucinich was still a US Rep, I had many opportunities to meet him and his wife while he was back home in the district. During our conversations, I was amazed at how level-headed and patriotic he truly was. Sure, he’s got a few strange beliefs (a la Shirley McClain and aliens visiting our planet) but all in all he really does love our country and want was is best for all of us.

        Dennis was deliberately maneuvered out of office when the Ohio General Assembly redistricted his seat so that they could bring in Marcy Kaptur to run against him. My belief is that someone…somewhere…higher up in the food chain viewed Dennis as a very serious threat and he had to go. Long story short, I’d take a hundred Dennis Kucinichs over the lowlife Uniparty members we have now.

        President Barack Obama has ordered a “deep dive” into the cyberattacks, which targeted Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee, among other victims. The president has asked for a final report before he leaves office next month, and Trump on Sunday endorsed Obama’s effort to get to the bottom of the hacking that plagued the 2016 election.

        “I want it, too. I think it’s great. I think — well, I don’t want anyone hacking us, and I’m not only talking about countries. I’m talking about anyone, period,” Trump said of the investigation ordered by Obama. “But if you’re going to do that, I think you should not just say ‘Russia.’ You should say other countries also, and maybe other individuals.”

      So what is a special counsel? And what is the difference between a special counsel, a special prosecutor, and an independent counsel? The terms are largely interchangeable to refer to someone appointed to investigate allegations that could involve a conflict of interest within the Department of Justice. But the manner in which they are appointed and why has changed over time.

      The president has always had the authority to name a special prosecutor. After the crisis brought on by the Watergate scandal, Congress passed a law creating an “independent counsel” who could be appointed by a three-judge panel. After the experiences of the Iran-Contra investigation and the probe into the Clinton’s Whitewater land deal, there was bipartisan support to abandon that law. Now, the attorney general, in addition to the president, has the power to appoint a special counsel.

      The statute regarding the grounds for appointing a special counsel says the attorney general, or acting attorney general in cases where the attorney general is recused, can appoint a special counsel when a case presents a “conflict of interest” for the Justice Department, or “other extraordinary circumstances.” In this case, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was able to appoint Mueller because Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself.

    MOSUL: Iraqi forces have recaptured nearly 90 per cent of west Mosul from the Daesh group and militants in the city are on the “brink of total defeat,” officers said on Tuesday.

    Both Staff Lieutenant General Abdulwahab al-Saadi, a senior Iraqi special forces commander, and Colonel John Dorrian, the spokesman for the US-led international coalition against IS, said that the end was near for militants in the city.

    “They have two options: die and go to hell or raise the white flag. They have no third option,” Saadi told reporters at his headquarters in Mosul.

    “The enemy is completely surrounded,” Dorrian told the news conference in Baghdad.

    “Trump is that crazy-ass soldier who stands up, charges the line and flops down on the barbed wire, so the rest of the unit can follow, undeterred by the wire. The only way we get our country back is to follow him and charge the enemy, who is concentrating all their fire on him to keep anyone from following him against them. If we stand back and don’t follow, we sacrifice the brave crazy guy and lose the battle, which by the way, means we lose the war, because we won’t find another crazy-ass natural leader to lay down on that barbed wire if we let this sacrifice himself for nothing.

    Remember: The war is US versus the POLITICAL CLASS. We have to get our kind elected, and open the supply roads to bring in more like us. It’s the only way we win.” https://nukeprofessional.blogspot.sg/2017/05/summary-of-status-quo-correctly.html

    Here is the issue: President Trump is being accused of vaguely being controlled by Russia, owing Russia for his election, or just plain not being anti-Russia enough, and that this is all bad. We are being conditioned to think that it is so bad that we need to change presidents.

    But what is the alternative foreign policy towards Russia? What is the campaign platform of the deep state in this un-election?

    We forget easily in these days of endless news, but during 2015-2016 before the election, our relations with Russia had deteriorated to the point that war seemed likely. it seemed very clear to me that the deep state actually wanted to provoke a war between the US and Russia. Hillary would have continued provoking Russia, and would have likely gone ahead with war.

    This is the end game for the deep state, endless war and death.

      They were pushing war, and PDJT came along and gave all the people who are tired of endless wars an alternative. Many people voted for him because they knew he wouldn’t go along with the neo-con war mongering.

      They’ve simply switched lies to push the war they still want.

    Kucinich Took On Powerful Interests in Mayoral Race

    Dennis Kucinich began his rise in local politics early: he was 23 when he was first elected to the Cleveland city council and only 30 when he began his campaign for mayor in 1977.

    Kucinich ran as a populist, railing against the city’s tax policy and strongly opposing its plan to sell the struggling municipal power company to a private competitor that local banks had a vested interest.

    • And he was politically destroyed by the vested interests and forced out of office for opposing them. He did win the battle, but lost years. Later, he was elected to congress and then they redistricted him out of office. I think he understands the deep state.

    I have noticed a slight weakening of the dam when it comes to other intelligent people of good will, who otherwise tend to support liberal causes.
    I was wondering when a more prominent Democrat was going to step up and speak out, because this crazy “it’s the Russians” excuse is an insult.
    Add to that the fact that it came from Hillary, a losing Democrat, and remember, there are a lot of Democrats who don’t like Hillary too much.
    Bernie started out as that more prominent Democrat, and he isn’t even a Democrat. He’s still making puny attempts at reform, but then some unseen hand jerks his chain and he’s back bashing Trump, the man who was considerate enough to tell Bernie the truth, during the primary.
    BTW, because my comments get moderated, I can’t participate on a timely basis with the other posters.
    I’m not sure why this still happens, but it may be because once I accidentally filled in the wrong thing in the name field, and it posted that way.

    Before you discount any Russian influence operations please remember this. The Russians have a very competent intelligence service. The Russians like the US intelligence agencies look for up and coming potential political players to compromise so that they can be used at a later date. If their target ends up with a presidential campaign then their efforts would have been hugely successful. Manafort and Flynn fit the description of persons foreign intelligence services would try to approach and compromise. Were these individuals compromised, I don’t know. But you should remember Trump cut both of these guys loose. Trump did so for a reason, not necessarily for the reason(s) reported in the press.

      That’s all well and good, but Russia is not an enemy and no one is not allowed to deal with Russia, Russians or the Russian government. That’s the problem here…we’re supposed to believe that Flynn’s connections with the Russians are somehow compromising but everyone else who has connections with Russians is not compromising. Heck, government officials released over a hundred million dollars to Iran and no one said anything.
