What Is this #Deep State I’ve Been Reading About?

2017-03-13 – Republicans have been talking about something called the “Deep State” lately.

As far as I can tell, the Deep State is something like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion—but they don’t say the word Jew. The Deep State is some sort of cabal in our government that is poised to prevent patriots like Donald Trump from exercising his full, right-ful authority. The Deep State appears to reside in the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, the IRS, the Joint Chiefs, the courts, the Fed, the National Park Service, the media, Hollywood, and the Obama’s D.C. rental house.

It seems that these folks are plotting a coup.

It would have been too easy for these folks to engineer an Electoral College victory for Hillary. So they deliberately let her lose so they could seize the government.

What? That’s not how I would do it.

I have to admit: I’m having a hard time taking this seriously. And here’s why: Every time I hear the phrase “Deep State” I think “Deep Throat.”

Do you remember Deep Throat?

Deep Throat was the code name for the informant who kept feeding information to Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein during the Watergate Scandal. Information provided by Deep Throat led ultimately to the downfall of President Richard Nixon.

Very deep.

We never learned the identity of Deep Throat. But I have a sneaking suspicion that I do know the identity of the folks who are going to engineer the downfall of the current Republican government—and there’s nothing deep or secretive about it. In fact, it is written in the Constitution. The first three words:

We the People . . . are the deep state.

Be very afraid.

. . . My deep state activity for today is attending a town hall meeting given this evening by my representative in Congress.
