What Will the Deep State Do?
when it comes to the crunch
Over the years we have seen our Democratic friends get up to all kinds of shenanigans when it comes to abusing the system to trip up the opposition and/or advance their agenda.
Because that’s what you do when politics is the Only Thing and you gotta stop The Enemy.
You had nice Lois Lerner slow-walking non-profit applications for Tea Party organizations.
You had mostly peaceful protesting whenever a black guy got killed by a white guy — or a white Hispanic — in election years.
You had Hillary Clinton & Co. getting help from the intelligence community in their Russia dossier.
You had the curious case of zeroing out Lt. Gen. Flynn lest he get to run the intelligence community.
You had Zuckbucks to help count the vote in 2020.
You had the various impeachments of President Trump.
You had the shock, horror of January 6, 2021.
You have various Lawfare actions against Trump associates.
You had the FBI dawn raid on Mar a Lago.
You had the various FBI SWAT raids on pro-life activists.
And so on.
My question is what will our deep state pals do when the voters elect a Republican Congress in November?
What will out deep state pals do if Republicans zero out the FBI budget in 2023?
What will our deep state pals do when America elects a GOP president with 55-45 popular vote in 2024?
See, the way I look at it, our deep state pals have been either too careful or too cowardly to cross the line into… well, let’s say conducting really flagrant arrests of GOP activists and officeholders, and stuffing ballot boxes by the million.
But would they have the cojones to flat out refuse to leave office in 2025? Because “Our Democracy!”
In other words, do they have the balls to go full Lenin or Castro?
Up to now, my judgement is that, up to now, they haven’t needed to. They have done what they needed to do with behind-the-scenes shenanigans, and their rioting, as in AntiFa, seems to follow a careful script that falls short of actual insurrection that would require an armed response. When a BLM founder claims to be a “trained Marxist” she is saying that she has been taught how to stay within the lines. Thus the violence of BLM and AntiFa is low enough that regime media can get away with reporting “mostly peaceful protest” on the TV news.
But what if it looks they they are going to lose everything, and that GOP prosecutors might start indicting good loyal federal bureaucrats and taking away their pensions?
Thing is, our beloved deep state is an assembly of regime ticket punchers and influence manipulators that are good at operating on the inside, interacting with their deep-state pals to deep-six today’s targeted GOP threat. In my view you need completely different characters to start doing the Robespierre and the Dzerzhinsky thing.
But what do I know.
