“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”-Edward Murrow
The Deep State comprises unelected officials who cannot be fired, survive changing administrations and run the country.
The most feared portions of the Deep State are the intelligence agencies: the CIA and the FBI.
CIA TAKES OUT JOHN KENNEDY
The CIA had three reasons to get rid of Kennedy:
(1) The CIA felt that Kennedy gave away Cuba in the Bay of PIgs by not providing air support. Without air support the rebels had no chance of overthrowing Castro and were massacred. This angered the CIA because they had put a lot to time and effort into this operation.
(2) The CIA feared that Kennedy would not escalate American involvement in Vietnam and let Vietnam also fall to communism.
(3) Kennedy fired the Director of the CIA, Allen Dulles, after the Bay of Pigs disaster. It was feared that Kennedy would dismantle the CIA for what he considered bad information on how to handle the overthrow of Castrol
FBI and CIA Engineer Watergate
The CIA and FBI brought down Nixon because he threatened to expose the CIA’s involvement in the assassination of John Kennedy and other black ops. CIA and FBI operatives orchestrated both the Watergate break-in and the two-year firestorm that forced Nixon to resign.
Nixon was unaware that at least four of the Watergate burglars were still on the CIA payroll at the time of the break-in of the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters.
The Watergate scandal would have been limited to lower-level Nixon staff if it had not been for constant leaks from then Deputy Director of the FBI Mark Felt. Felt leaked information to Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward who shared the information with fellow reporter Carl Bernstein. Felt was the secret source of information in 1972, dubbed Deep Throat, that kept the story alive, eventually forcing the resignation of Nixon in 1974.
The CIA and FBI are almost completely unaccountable to anyone and, it is increasingly obvious, deeply corrupt and politicized.
In an interview in January 2017, Chuck Schumer said, “You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
With the heavy-handed FBI raid of Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago and the recent revelation that the FBI had at least 8 informants inside the Proud Boys at the time of the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, people are waking up to the corruption that exists at the highest levels of government.
