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.”

WARNING from a survivor: Is China’s horrific past America’s terrifying future?

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.
