Deep State Now Talked About Openly on the Mainstream Media

The Deep State is out in the open! With open speculation that the Deep State had a hand in the leak that exposed Gen. Michael Flynn leading to his ouster, there is now open discussion of the nature and existence of the Deep State on the mainstream and progressive media. It was mentioned on Brian Lehrer's program yesterday, and today (now, in fact) prizewinning journalist Glenn Greenwald is giving an even more revealing definition on Amy Goodman's Democracy Now! (Thursday, Feb. 16 at 8:35 am, WBAI, 99.5 FM).

Greenwald defined it only as the permanent agencies that handle security, such as the CIA and the NSA, which are know international lawbreakers and provokers of mass-murderous military actions abroad. Actually, it also includes military, corporate and banking moguls, whose interests the CIA and NSA ultimately serve (see "The American Deep State" by Peter Dale Scott, 2015). Greenwald was decrying the view that the Deep State would be preferable to the (fraudulently) elected President Trump. He rightly said that this would be a terrible mistake and lead to the destruction of Constitutional protection of civil liberties, even if it would remove an odious chief executive.
