Here’s What You Need to Know About the ‘Deep State’

The term ‘deep state’ — once considered conspiracy theorists’ nonsense — made it’s mainstream debut Tuesday evening when President Donald Trump tweeted the following:

President Trump’s widely publicized mention of a “deep state” lent credence to ongoing theories that there is a secret ‘state within the state’ that really calls the shots, and — as far as Trump is concerned — is working to bring him down.

So … is there really such a thing as the Deep State?

All this week, Glenn is back at the chalkboard to take an in-depth look into the Deep State. In previous episodes (see part 1 here and part 2 here), Glenn discussed the two types of deep state: the “monolithic” and the “large bureaucratic machine.” The monolithic deep state, the kind you’d find in books and movies, does exists in certain parts of the world like Turkey and Egypt, but does not exist here in the US.

However, the “large bureaucratic machine” type of deep state is very much alive and well in America and Glenn explains exactly how in this video clip from today’s episode. “It’s big government that has created what many people are referring to now as the deep state,” said Glenn. Later he added, “Secrecy and an overall lack of transparency gives fuel to this machine, the fuel that it needs to operate, but big government ultimately created it.”

Glenn starts by giving several examples of how “the machine” works, naming the three main groups that operate both within and outside the country:

  1. Political appointees
  2. Career civil servants
  3. Private contractors

He goes on to explain the part the following government entities play in creating “a deep state bureaucratic hell.”

  1. The National Security Council
  2. The Internal Revenue Service
  3. The Environmental Protection Agency
  4. The United States Agency for International Development

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
