Trump And The Deep State
Good stuff from Caitlin Johnstone over at Medium:
Right on cue, and perfectly in alignment with the script Michael Tracey laid out way back in March with his excellent Medium piece “The Basic Formula For Every Shocking Russia/Trump Revelation”, the New York Times published an article based entirely on anonymous sources with yet another Shocking Trump/Russia Revelation.
The article revolves around an email which the Times has never seen, instead relying on the purported testimony of “three people with knowledge of the email” and hoping its outstanding reputation for journalistic integrity (typing that physically hurt) would be enough to satisfy any skepticism its readers might have. Donald Trump Jr., the subject of this particular Shocking Trump/Russia Revelation, has published what he says is the entirety of the emails discussed in the article if anyone’s curious. Be forewarned though: it’s shocking.
What does The Deep State want from Trump?
The sudden increase in baseless Russia hysteria from the corporate media could be attributed to many things, but personally I think it’s the possible movement toward peace in Syria combined with the president’s recent series of tweets talking about moving into a constructive working relationship with Russia.
The deep state has been using its media propaganda arm to set up a situation where Trump’s support will be hurt if he doesn’t take a neoconservative stance toward those countries, and he’s suddenly ceased capitulating and stepped way out of line just by saying what he said. No matter how you squint at it, something definitely changed behind the scenes.
The Deep State loves the smell of napalm in the morning! Here's a Salon review of a new movie The War Machine:
The Deep State v. Trump:
Things keep heating up. Since America is a corporatist oligarchy and not at all the democratic republic that it purports to be, the nation has rulers, and rulers historically don’t cede power easily. The current administration is arguably no less corrupt than the ones which preceded it, but since Trump came in with his own team, his own connections, his own agendas and his own ideas about how to run things, he’s getting some aggressive pushback from the alliance of powerful unelected elites which inhabited the deep state prior to his arrival, all of whom have their own connections, their own agendas, and their own ideas about how to run things.
