WHAT IS THE DEEP STATE?

The recent release of the Nunes memo charging the US intelligence community with malfeasance in using the false and notorious Steele Dossier to obtain FISA warrants on Trump flunky Carter Page has raised some curious responses: conservative Bret Stephens at The New York Times calls the memo a “nothingburger.” Conversely, Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News and Salem Media’s Joe Piscopo Show decries the effort to “smear” the FBI,  defends Mueller, while denouncing the very existence of the FISA courts.
Retiring Congressman Trey Gowdy, who authored the Nunes memo, also defends Mueller, while former FBI New York czar James Kalstrom denounces the extralegal new FBI in The Wall Street Journal as a an unprofessional rogue operation.
So which is it, man or mouse? The answer is both.
To comprehend what the Deep State is, let us recall Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches. Holmes and Watson are traveling to the London suburbs to investigate a domestic conundrum. Holmes remarks to Watson that the worst crimes are not committed in metropolitan London, but in the country. “Imagine, Watson,” says Sherlock, “imagine if you could fly over these country mansions and view inside. What horrors would we see!”
Elementary… the Deep State is a group of elite humans gazing, especially through your beloved iPhones, at everything about you and the President, and all in between.
As John Crudele has reported in The New York Post, the top secret, illegal government component of this surveillance is called Domex, and everyone connected with this quite unconstitutional breach, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, should already be behind bars.
All stands between the Deep State and us is President Trump and his Twitter feed. Oh, did I mention that Twitter and all of Silicon Valley is part of this, too?
