“Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded.”
— Senator William Jenner
(1908-1985) U.S. Senator (IN-R)
If you have the misfortune to have any dealing with Liberals (or RINOs for that matter), one of the first things that will occur is a poo pooing of President Trump’s claim that there is a “Deep State“. The above quote is from a United States Senator. Below is a quote from President Roosevelt (the one on Rushmore). Other places there are quotes from Representative Larry MacDonald that died at the hands of the Russians. A video of President John F. Kennedy speaking of the shadow government. Harper’s magazine from 1958. Quotes from President Wilson and FDR. Secretary of Defense James Forrestal. Isn’t that odd? People at the very top talked about this hidden foe of liberty, yet it got no press or consideration? Almost like corporate media was in cahoots with it.
All using various terms for a hidden government Trump termed the Deep State. Its easy for the deniers to shout, “Conspiracy theory!” When in reality it is conspiracy fact. As someone once said, “Your ignorance of a situation does not therefore make me a nut.” Just because you don’t know about it or accept it does not make it wrong. Jenner was marginalized by history as is anyone else who delves into the subject. Wikipedia dismisses Jenner as a McCarthyite and a “conspiracy theorist”. Despite the document release resulting from the fall of the Soviet Union such as the Venona Project that confirmed Russian agents inside our government. There were exactly 2 photos of the man that I could find, neither of which were large enough to use for this post. Its easy enough for controlled media like Wikipedia to dismiss these ‘conspiracy nuts’ one on one, but as a group it becomes more problematic.
Then Trump gets elected and blurts out the truth. The obfuscation machines go into overdrive. There’s nothing other worldly about it, its just a case of (as it always is) ‘follow the money’. Or as Teddy Roosevelt below put it, “An unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics”. That’s all it is, see who profits. As John D. Rockefeller pointed out nearly 150 years ago, for business, “Competition is a sin.” Therefore it pays to own Congress. Having them at your beck and call makes life so much easier.
Pharmaceuticals, the military-industrial complex, oil, banking, Wall Street, all of them and more have found out the road to wealth is paved with the structured advantages that only the power of the State can provide. This legalized prostitution of our government has become legitimate. The transition has become a well recognized revolving door between Congress and K Street. As Teddy pointed out, shutting this door is priority 1 for the statesman. Obviously 100 years later, that never happened.
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”
— Theodore Roosevelt
