Here’s What We Know About the ‘Deep State’ in America

Shortly after President Donald Trump took office, a series of leaks within the government began to plague his administration, leading to a fresh wave of conspiracy theories about the existence of a “deep state” or a secret entity that underhandedly controls our government and elected officials.

Yesterday, Glenn kicked off this week’s chalkboard series on the ‘deep state’ by acquainting listeners with two different types of deep state: the “monolithic” and the “large bureaucratic machine.”

The monolithic deep state is the the type you might read about in spy novels or hear about in conspiracy theories. By definition, monolithic means “constituting or acting as a single, often rigid, uniform whole.” A monolithic deep state is one in which a single entity or organization secretly rules within or over the recognized government.

While there is no known monolithic deep state in the United States, this clandestine scenario does exist in other parts of the world such as Turkey and Egypt. (Click here to learn more on monolithic deep state..)

On today’s show, Glenn continued on the topic with a closer look into the second type of deep state: ‘large bureaucratic machine.’

“The large bureaucratic machine does exist here in America and many times it runs directly contrary to the will of the people,” said Glenn. He later added, “This machine has a mindset that, regardless of who you are, who you vote for, or what you want, the state knows best. They know what’s best for you, better than you know. This mindset exploded and really came about in America during the progressive era.”

In the video clip above, Glenn works his way down an origins-of-deep-state timeline, starting when President Theodore Roosevelt set the stage “for the bureaucratic machine to take off.”

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
