Is the “Deep State” Behind the Impeachment of Donald Trump?

A senior White House adviser, Stephen Miller, recently claimed the impeachment inquiry imperiling Donald Trump’s presidency was a product of the “deep state”, a conspiracy theory which holds that a permanent government of civil servants and security operatives exists to thwart the will of the people.

President Trump himself has tweeted of the existence of the “Deep State” that he, and now his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, have been the targets of.

As you surely know by now, In August, an unidentified member of the intelligence services filed a whistleblower’s complaint about Trump’s behavior. It was processed through official channels, then withheld from Congress. On September 25, after the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, announced an impeachment inquiry, the complaint was released. It detailed a phone call, the transcript of which has also since been released that appeared to show that Trump was withholding military aid from Ukraine, unless they helped Trump in his attempts to damage former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump’s leading Democratic rival.

Last weekend, as Trump surrogates joined in the furious offensive, Miller told Fox News Sunday that he was well aware of “the difference between a whistleblower and a deep state operative”.

Much of the deep state conspiracy theory’s power in US politics under Trump has been generated by the far-right Breitbart website, which Steve Bannon ran before joining the 2016 Trump campaign and after his time in the White House.

Breitbart has recently published a new essay entitled, “Lessons of Impeachment, from Watergate to Monicagate to Bidengate. The byline on the piece is “Virgil,” the pseudonymous author of the original Deep State series. In it, the author quoted Bannon, and added, “Yes, this is the deep state in action, and it’s out for blood.”

But although once a prime mover in the formation and propagation of the deep state conspiracy theory, according to Steve Bannon himself, it should not be taken seriously. Bannon states his opinion in a new book, Deep State: Trump, the FBI and the Rule of Law by James B Stewart, which will be published on 8 October. The “deep state conspiracy theory is for nut cases”, Bannon is quoted as saying, because “America isn’t Turkey or Egypt”.

There is a formidable government bureaucracy in the US, he adds, but “there’s nothing ‘deep’ about it. It’s right in your face.”

    Of course the Deep State would not want people to know they exist. They are not limited to this country. They are from different countries waiting to make a move on America and bring her down at any cost. Those denying this are part of it. It is obvious those cowards would not act on their own and tackle this country without backup that is overwhelming. Our President is a good man and is trying to help this country maintain her Constitution that is founded using principals of the Holy Bible, the Word of God and principals that are good, decent, honorable and just. The deep state wants the truth hidden and twisted for their own use against any and all those who oppose what they are doing.

      I agree with your comment 100%. Anyone can look at the way the Democrat/Liberal/Socialist Party are acting and the things they are manipulating and see this is a conspiracy and collusion involving all mainstream press domestic and internationally as well as many other political players both domestic and international!
      They are all working to transition the US from being a Constitutional Republic with a Free Market Economy into a Socialist State with a Socialist State controlled economy which includes control of the Means of Production.
      The ignorance of American people who do not understand this, thus do not see what is occurring is very destructive and makes our country very vulnerable to a take over, bringing her and all citizens to their knees. Our rights and freedoms are protected under The Constitution of the United States. Our constitution cannot align with Socialism and would be either so altered or completely removed it would no longer protect our rights and freedoms. The plea “Father forgive them. They know not what they do!” can be borrowed and justly applied in regards to the American People who are unaware of the manipulations and of the forces working against them and against the lives and livelihoods of their future generations.
      President Trump is most certainly very aware and he has been aware for many years regarding what is happening politically, socially, culturally, and spiritually to undermine our freedoms and rights and he is working as hard as any man possibly can to prevent the destruction and take over of our country and of her citizens and the gates of Hell are coming down on him from all sides as a result.

    The Deep State Progressive Demorats Socialist party & the Moron Squad want to Impeach President Trump, because the Demorats do not have any presidential candidate who has anything to offer the American people, and their is no candidate who could handle the enormous responsibilities of America or any of the Foreign Leaders.

    The candidates have absolutely nothing to offer the American people, only GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF EVERYTHING AND EVERY PERSON, MASSIVE TAX INCREASES ON THE TAXPAYERS, OPEN BORDERS TO LET EVERY IMMIGRANT INTO THE USA WITHOUT BEING COMPLETELY CHECK OUT TO SEE IF THEY ARE CRIMINALS, TERRORIST, AND WORST OF ALL ARE THEY CARRYING DISEASES, FREE FREE FREE EVERYTHING INCLUDING AN ADD’L $1,000 A MONTH WILL FIRST GO TO THE ILLEGALS IMMIGRANTS. THEY WILL DESTROY THE GREAT ECONOMY IN THE WORLD, THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP ACHIEVED FOR AMERICA. ALL THE BLUE COLLAR JOBS WILL GIVEN FIRST TO THE ILLEGALS IMMIGRANTS. THEY ARE PLANNING TO ELIMINATE BORDER PATROL, ICE AGENTS, PUT LIMITATION ON THE POLICE.
    AOC WHO IS SUPPORTING OLD BERNIE SANDERS, PLANS TO RELEASE EVERY PRISONER AND CLOSE ALL PRISONS. IMAGE ALL THE VIOLENCE, MURDERS, RAPES, THIEVES, CHILD RAPISTS WILL BE LET FREE TO COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    THE WORLD MUST BE COMING TO AN END,SINCE THERE IS SO MUCH EVIL, HATRED AND DANGER THAT EXIST.

    In the eyes of the Democratic Party and left liberals Obama is still there President. That is the reason that Obama formed the Deep State (shadow Government). He initially formed it to oversee and guide Hillary but that plan got temporarily (in there minds) postponed so Obama resorted to plan B to do what ever and how ever at any cost to rid Trump of his Presidency. Obama spent his 8 years raising racial division through the roof, raising the population of unemployed by chasing manufacturer’s and jobs overseas so they would become dependent on the Government. He complimented Obama Care only again to force We The People to depend more in his Big Government control (Socialist/Communist) agenda.He doubled our debt to put us in a financial crisis. He decreased our Military strength by a third. He abolished our space program and made us dependent to China to getting our people to to be able to maintain our satellite systems. He pulled our forces from Iran against the advice of our Military advisers which allowed ISIS to build there forces by the thousands and required us to return. Know because Trump is trying to get America back on track and even make improvements for all Americans. Yes to accomplish this it does come at a cost allot less them Obama through away which none of his spending went towards helping We The People at all. In 2016 they were predicting that Hillary was going to win and be the last President meaning that she was supposed to follow through with Obama’s lead guided by him in his Deep State (Shadow Government) after her completion of the Socialist/Communist Big Government control America was to be transferred to Obama as the Dictator continuing his agenda to the One World Order that he was pushing while in Office. Remember his statement that The American People are not capable of taking care of there own affairs that under the One World Order they will take care of that. That came across to me as that we would loss our rights of freedom of choice and speech because you wouldn’t be able to disagree. The Big Government will tell you what to do because as Obama stated We aren’t capable of handling our own affairs. He also stated that America would be better off under Sharia law which would rule out our Constitution, Rule of Law and our Bill of Rights. Remember Hillary during her Campaigning she stated that Sharia law was a good thing. Know this is the Barbaric law that makes Women 3rd class citizens where rape is legal, butchering Women at birth by removing there clitoris because Women are for pleasuring the Man, if a Woman steps out of line there punishment can range from being beat to being stoned to death or decapitated, Women aren’t allowed to drive there not to walk ahead of the Man, no alcohol and more. I’m a Man and the idea of being a Socialist/Communist Gig Government under Sharia law makes me sick. What bothers me the most is that at a land slide vote of the House and Congress to support Hong Kong’s push towards a Free Democracy out of a Socialist/Communist State. Know the Democratic hypocrisy kicks in again because they are pushing for America to go to a Socialist/Communist Nation and take away our Freedom in a Free Democracy.

      The” Deep State”exists and survives because there is no punishment for the actors, they and those associated with them have not been subjected to the pain for there actions as Robert Hanson, former FBI Supervisor/ Special Agent and now a convicted felon in a maximum security facility. The “DEEP STATE” is alive and well it has many benfactors The Democrat Party, Main Stream Media, Hollywood and the Radical Left Organizations, BLM, Planned Parenthood, The National Teachers Union and the Communist Party. Remember you can VOTE your way into Socialism, but, you have to shoot your way out.

    I have listened to the conspiracy theories for some years in the past. The further they went the more obvious it became that this is the imagination of some source that would over take the minds of Americans, while taking over the United States Government and doing away with our democracy. Yes, we were told and they were correct to foretell that they, Russians, would take over the US without firing a shot. Get the most effective people to spread their subversive news, which their operatives would spread through our right-wing news media. As people began to love conspiracy theories that dictated the evils of our National and International agencies, the more ignorant one sided concepts became the platform of one man because he fit into the mold of “making American great again”??? by making a mess of everything this nation had done in the past. His friends reached far and wide. Friends who are dictators and enemies who use to be our allies. He is not a reader, so he knows little, but claims to be the best and know the most. Only claims and they are hollow. Those who believe Mr. President, do so because they love a conspiracy and anything this bully says. As one friend from Europe said recently, “Your President talks, and talks, but he really does not say anything.” And that folks is what we have. We can only pray we escape the grip of this actors intent to please the head of the Russian mob and get richer, and not really thinking about America, unless there is something in it for him. The answer is reading all sources and learning that it is not all about gun control to do us in by our government, it might serve other sources. We live by rules, and ALL need to be subject to them. Even the Pres. of the US. Just because one is President does not mean he can do exactly whatever he wants. That is not the law.

WITH THE UN DIVIDING UP OUR COUNTRY WE WOULD HAVE HAD A DICTATOR IN HILLARY. AND SOROS NEEDS TO BE DESTROYED. WHO IS GETTING HIS MONEY FINGERS IN ANYTHING THE DEMS WANT. IF WE DON’T STOP THEM WE WILL END UP LOOKING LIKE VENEZULIA. AND IT WILL BE US OUT IN THE STREETS AND THE ILLEGALS IN OUR HOMES. THE DEMS HAVE BECOME POWER HUNGRY EVEN IF IT MEANS THROWING US OUT IN THE STREETS WIT NO SAY IN THE MATTER. AND I’M SURE THEY ARE GETTING INSTRUCTIONS FROM BARRY FOR SURE.

    As this thing gets deeper it appears that the democrats are doing everything they can to cause a street revolution. They would rather see this nation burned to the ground than give up the power they seek. Once it starts it cannot be stopped. But I do honestly believe it is coming. The democrats have managed to divide this country enough to have some of the people believe it’s ok to go into the street and attack defenseless people who disagrees with that thinking. And it runs higher up the channel than thought. Police forces are being told by Mayors and Governors to allow masked punks to run amuck and the police themselves are being attacked. I don’t see how this can go much further without retaliation.
