The Deep State, also known as the Administrative Stae and the Swamp, is comprised of unelected officials who operate within the government and cannot be fired. These officials survivie changing administrations and make decisions that run the country.
Our Founding Fathers created three co-equal branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. Today they are all ruled by a fourth branch: the Administrative State.
The Supreme Court enabled the creation of the Administrative State in 1984 when they ruled that government agencies could create laws. The creation of laws had been constitutionally restricted to Congress. Since 1984, government agencies and their unelected officials have created an ever-growing mountain of regulations.
The Deep State Unseated Trump
The Deep State displayed its power in 2020. After Trump greenlighted the Fauci team to handle COVID, Trump was effectively unseated from power. People who have never been elected locked down the country, closed churches and schools, wrecked the economy, and enabled millions of mail-in ballots to flood the country for the 2020 presidential election.
These administrators went on TV to brag about what they were doing and the media, with big techs assistance, did their best to give them cover and block voices that were not in agreement.
The Deep State Protects Biden
Senator Ron Johnson (R – WI) and Senator Chuck Grassley (R – IA) have laid out the foundation of the entanglements of the corrupt Biden family. They have also found grounds for impeachment of Homand Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Attorney General Merrick Garland.
The investigation has been hindered because the Republicans do not control the Senate. As Senator Johnson said, “It is not easy to conduct an investigation when the deep state keeps covering it all up.”
The Supreme Court Takes On The Deep State
Justice Clarence Thomas sent a warning shot across the bow of the Administrative Stae with a recent opinion. Justice Thomas said the SEC and the FTC both claim powers that go well beyond what the Founders of the Constitution envisioned.
The agencies had argued that any challenge must first go through their administrative process. Justice Thomas opined that the agencies had taken too much power and could not be both prosecutors and judges.
In addition to this case involving the SEC and FTC, the Supreme Court will review another case that could overturn the 1984 ruling, called the Chevron deference, which enabled government agencies to create laws.
Late in his first term, Trump came up with a plan to drain the swam. He signed an executive order which would allow unelected federal bureaucrats who have a “profound role” in shaping policy, to be removed from office by elected officials.
Biden, during his first week in office, rescinded the executive order.
Other Republican presidential candidates have spoken highly of the measure. Even if Trump does not secure the GOP nomination for 2024, it will likely become part of the platform of whoever does gain the nomination.
