How Deep is the Deep State?

President Trump promised on the campaign trail to drain the swamp in Washington. Yet it’s likely that even he at that time did not realize how deep and muddy that swamp really was. The creatures that reside within this swamp – career politicians who will stop at nothing to preserve the status quo – have been there for a long time now.

However, Trump’s Presidency has brought many of them out into the open, as they’ve been simply unable to stay hidden and silent while Trump works to destroy their power.

Dragging the deep state out into the light is nothing short of a victory for President Trump, but it’s also presented us with a concerning reality. The more bad actors that come out of hiding in Washington, the more we are left to wonder just how deep the deep state really is.

When the New York Times published an op-ed written by an anonymous senior official supposedly within the inner circle of the Trump administration criticizing the President and describing an active resistance against him, we were reminded yet again how far up the deep state really goes.

Following that op-ed, even more members of the so-called “resistance” came out into the open, though – at least in the sense that they made their existence known, if not their identity.

Just days after the piece was published, a second, anonymous senior official within the Trump administrations told Axios, “I find the reaction to the NYT op-ed fascinating — that people seem so shocked that there is a resistance from the inside…I hope he [President Trump] knows — maybe he does? — that there are dozens and dozens of us.”

At one time, the idea that dozens of senior officials within the White House were actively conspiring and working against the President would have made for a rather outlandish conspiracy theory. Today, though, it’s openly embraced – and celebrated by some – as our new political reality.

Of course, the deep state doesn’t just exist within the White House. We’ve already seen that both the FBI, CIA, and DOJ have been deeply infiltrated by highly partisan officials who have placed their desire to stop President Trump above both the demands of their position and their duties to their country. Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and James Comey are just a few of the high-up FBI officials who come to mind when you think of the deep state existing within the FBI.

Meanwhile, the CIA has been caught red-handed surveilling President Trump, and the Obama DOJ colluded with the FBI during the 2016 election in order to try and secure Hillary Clinton’s victory. Of course, most of these officials are now gone, victims of Trump successfully draining the swamp, but revelations such as those found in the New York Times and Axios op-eds leave us to wonder just how many of them remain.

When you consider the fact that the mainstream media is actively working against President Trump and colluding with these bad actors within the White House, FBI, DOJ, and CIA at every chance they get, the deep state grows even deeper. Today, news organizations and publications that were once some of the most respected and trustworthy media outlets in the entire world have sold their soul to the Democratic Party.

Presenting Americans with the truth has become a far less important priority than promoting a liberal agenda and opposing President Trump. In shirking the responsibilities of the fourth estate, many of those within the mainstream media have become a part of the deep state that in a better world they would be working to oust.

So just how deep is the deep state? The answer is that it is very deep. Frighteningly deep. President Trump may not be alone in his effort to drain the swamp and eliminate the deep state from Washington, but he’s certainly outnumbered.

The number of people that the President is able to trust absolutely are few and far between, and they grow fewer and farther between with every revelation that yet another leaker or another member of the “resistance” is hiding within the White House.

Yet, in spite of all this, President Trump tweeted out on September 5, “I’m draining the Swamp, and the Swamp is trying to fight back. Don’t worry, we will win!” For the good of the nation, we hope he’s right.
