In what I can only describe as “a hilarious statement,” the former number two at the FBI, Andrew McCabe, said on CNN that there’s no such thing as a “deep state” that’s “resisting” President Trump. Anyone who dares disagree with him is a mad conspiracy theorist.
“There is, of course, no Deep State, there is no resistance within the bureaucracy across government agencies pushing back against this president,” McCabe said on the Clinton News Channel. Really, there isn’t!
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson responded to this ridiculous statement on his show on Wednesday:
“What are you watching? What does it mean when people tell you lies that are so implausible that they must know that you know that they’re lies, even as they tell them. What is that about?” Carlson wondered out loud.
“I’ll tell you exactly what that’s about. What you’re watching is the people in charge losing control. Why? Because of the internet. For all the downsides of the internet, the upside of the internet is you really can’t control all the information on the internet. Because the average person knows more than ever before. And so the people like the ones you just saw on the screen [i.e. Andrew McCabe] who basically have had a monopoly on control over this country for a very long time, all of a sudden are losing it. And they’re panicked, they’re freaked out. And so they’re redoubling their efforts to lie to you, to clamp down on speech, and to, above all, make sure you shut up and stop asking obvious questions.”
Carlson is right. The members of the Deep State are clearly panicking. We can all see that there’s a concerted effort from CIA, FBI, NSA, and State Department officials to undermine the democratically elected president of America. It has been going on from the very day he was elected. Or, actually, from the very day he announced he’d run for president.
This movement has been well documented by Lee Smith in his book The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History. If you haven’t read it yet, I strongly urge you to get a copy of it now. Smith proves that the Deep State is a) real and b) doing everything it can to bring down President Trump.
Even people who haven’t read the book know, though, that McCabe lied on CNN. That he repeats that lie nonetheless is a sign that he and his fellow Deep Staters are, indeed, panicking.
