The Deep State

That great legal document, our United States Constitution provides for three branches of our federal government.

Article I provides for a Congress which includes a House of Representatives and the United States Senate. Article II provides for a President of the United States. Article III provides for a judicial system, a system of federal courts culminating in the United States Supreme Court. Three articles, three branches of government.

But today in America, there are four. There is what is called the:


That is, all of the federal agencies at work, including the EPA, Department of Education, the Justice Department, Health and Human Services and all others function in many ways as a government within a government, powerful, making their own rules and regulations, enforcing them without the approval of Congress and in actual fact, more powerful in some ways than the actual Congress itself. These federal agencies affect the lives of every American on a daily basis. They can be staffed with civil servants who enjoy job protection, many of whom can not be fired and they often exercise their extreme power without check and balance and in highly politicized ways. These self-serving bureaucrats are the members of the so-called deep state and the power they exercise, so often unconstitutional and politically driven is immense. And they comprise what Tom Fitton of the great organization Judicial Watch calls the:


In other words, yet another type and form of unconstitutional government, a sort of rogue agency, an agency within an agency. Therefore, today in America, there are three constitutional branches of our government and two, mind you TWO unconstitutional and de facto branches of government so often functioning as they please. Our Constitutional forefathers would turn over in their graves.

There is the notion in Washington, D.C. and in fact the media at large that there is what is called a:


That of course would be the shadowy Barack Hussein Obama at work and now in operation in Washington, D.C. no less to counter, with his deep state, this politically controlled administrative state the Presidency of Donald Trump in every way possible. This shadow President, this Obama operates what the media calls a shadow government with a shadow cabinet.

On the very day of the inauguration of Donald Trump, GQ Magazine stated the following:

Barack Obama is preparing for his third term.”

The magazine goes onto state:

Democrats are eager for Barack Obama to play the role of shadow President, offering direction to Americans who feel they lost their political compass the day Mr. Trump was elected.”

Writing for the magazine FrontPage, report Matthew Vadum stated the following:

Former President Obama is waging war against the Trump Administration through his generously funded agitation outfit ORGANIZING FOR ACTION, to defend his monumentally destructive record of failures and violent polarization.”

It is a chilling reminder that the increasingly aggressive, in-your-face LEFT in this country is on the march.

Scary stuff indeed, my fellow Americans. Do remember the name of that shadowy Obama-led entity ORGANIZING FOR ACTION, OFA. Remember that name. Even Hillary Clinton has been mentioned as a player in the shadowy government-Presidency-cabinet movement cooperating with Obama and OFA to oppose and obstruct Trump at every turn.

Even more, Chris Farrell, Director of Investigations for Judicial Watch stated the following:

The soft coup against the Trump Administration continues. A soft coup is a coordinated effort to delegitimize or undermine a lawfully elected official. Soft coups include actions by senior government officials refusing to carry out their roles and critical tasks, or otherwise acting in opposition to the letter or spirit of the law to diminish or remove de facto power from those who otherwise would legally wield it.”

In short, resistance at every turn. The militant LEFT employs the tactic of nullification. That is, refusing to carry out the orders and commands of the President, the Congress or even the secretaries of the agencies knowing that their civil service status will protect them. Many of these shadowy government employees were appointed by Obama and his ilk, are deeply entrenched in the administrative state, responsive only to Obama and organizations like OFA rather than lawful authority. They not only nullify and refuse to carry out express commands, but they leak information and perhaps even more harmful, publicize POLITICIZED NEWS. Many of these deeply entrenched bureaucrats are the originators of:


Which the media, liberal to the core published so frequently often without investigation or confirmation. It is those individuals, the critical component of the administrative state and the fake news emanating from them about which Trump so bitterly complains. THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT TO DO SO!

Think my fellow Americans about the chaotic condition of our federal government. There is a House of Representatives deeply partisan, Republican controlled. There is a Senate, Republican controlled but barely so, deeply and seemingly hopelessly divided. There is a President, a Republican in name but unpredictable in conduct. There is a judiciary, highly politicized, again deeply divided, with maverick judges at every federal level including the appellate branches. There is an administrative state, deeply entrenched, exercising de facto power, often oblivious to the Congress and nullifying the express instructions of Congress and the laws it creates. There are rogue agencies, like the EPA under Obama, doing as they wish, issuing rules and regulations politically motivated and driven often at the direction of an Obama and his organization OFA-ORGANIZING FOR ACTION. What a country, a dangerous one, a political tinderbox dysfunctional at the Constitutional level, the three branches of government, unable to DRAIN THE SWAMP of the administrative state and aggressively opposed or nullified at virtually every level by the political appointees of a shadow and radical anti-American former President at work at all times to destroy the Trump Administration. Our beloved country, my fellow Americans is deeply engaged in political warfare. It almost seems that today one is not an American, but rather on one side or another.

Author Paul Sperry writes in the New York Post the following:

Obama has an army of agitators numbering more than 30,000 who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic Presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House!”

Obama is working behind the scenes to setup what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular AMERICA FIRST agenda.

This man, this former President who many think was the worst and un-American President in our storied history is determined to bring down the Trump Administration.

This group, ORGANIZING FOR ACTION employs the priorities and the organizing techniques Obama learned from the teachings of his fellow Chicagoan Saul Alinsky. Alinsky was a nihilist who advocated the philosophy of:





That was Alinsky. That IS Obama. The Chicago community organizer now becomes potentially America’s worst enemy.

Former United States representatives Bob Edgar, Democrat from Pennsylvania sounded the alarm about OFA in 2013. Edgar suggested the group was dangerous to Democracy, stating the following:

“If President Obama is serious about his often-expressed desire to rein in big money in politics, he should shut down
ORGANIZING FOR ACTION and disavow any plan to schedule regular meetings with its major donors.”

You can bet the farm that would not happen and never will.

This ORGANIZING FOR ACTION has thrived, especially since the Trump election. It is wealthy, growing, aggressive and many think a real threat to America. OFA has been aided by the new chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Tom Perez who has openly stated:

It’s time to organize and fight!”

Democratic Chairman Perez is aided by no less than Representative Keith Ellison, Democrat from Minnesota who is an avowed Muslim and many think a jihadist. It is hard to comprehend that a major political party in America, the Democratic Party, has an avowed Muslim and a possible jihadist number two in command! Can you believe that? Perez and Ellison make the following statement:

We must stand up to protect President Obama’s accomplishments. We’re going to build the strongest grassroots organizing force this country has ever seen.”

Watch out, America. Here come the radicals, the unconstitutionalists, the power hungry, socialistic Democrats determined it seems to destroy what is left of conservative America, led by the radical Perez and the Islamist Ellison. But really, REALLY responsive to and taking orders from the shadow President himself:


Now living in a walled mansion in Washington, D.C., not more than two miles from the center of power! It is this very Obama who directs the supposed 5 million Americans who have taken action with OFA. The fight for the heart, soul and mind of America goes on and many believe that fight has only just begun.

And you can be certain that where destruction reigns, you will find the nefarious, the evil:


Many think this Soros is one of the most destructive individuals alive. Soros has founded dozens of operations or funded them from afar including the entity DEMOCRACY ALLIANCE. That organization boasts the membership of any number of left-wing billionaires who are devoted with Soros to radical political change. They include Ryan Smith, Marcy Carsey, John Stryker, Paul Boskind, Paul Egerman and Nick Hanauer, all extremely wealthy individuals, having made their fortunes through capitalism and now with the intent, like Soros to destroy it. When you combine the assets, human and capital, of OFA and Democracy Alliance, the actions of the DNC, Perez and Ellison, the evil machinations of George Soros all under the influence and leadership of the shadow President himself BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, America is in extreme danger, enduring an internal threat as great as any military force from without.

And Obama, living only two miles from the White House in a walled mansion which he rented for $5.3 million, continues to bark out the orders. The shadow President issues tweets from the OFA account on a regular basis. In fact, Obama gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory:

It is fine for everybody to feel stressed, sad, discouraged.”

Said Obama in a post-election conference call from the White House. “But get over it,” he said. “Progressives have to move forward to protect what we’ve accomplished.”

Now he said is the time for some organizing. SO DON’T MOPE! Get on with our radical agenda, he says, and do everything possible to disrupt, dismantle and destroy the Trump Administration. “Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by the elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake,” said the shadow President.

But what these radical progressives do is far more than that. Many are members of the organization THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZING INSTITUTE (COI) which partners with progressive groups like OFA and organizations to educate, engage and collaborate. What that organization really teaches, says David Horowitz of the excellent organization FREEDOM CENTER is how to spark riots, how to get arrested to make a political statement, organize mob activities, foster voter fraud on a massive scale, intimidate and shake down corporations, blackmail lenders and banks, race-bait public officials and businesses into submission, smear and terrorize any opponents, shield illegal aliens from law enforcement, lead squatters to invade for closed homes, encourage welfare fraud, and use tax dollars to promote cockamamie social-engineering schemes.

Wow, what a statement from Horowitz and the Freedom Center. Scary, very scary stuff for America, don’t you think? So much illegal activity, unconstitutional which if carried to the extreme can indeed destroy America, DESTROY IT FROM WITHIN!

It is just hard to comprehend, at least for me my fellow Americans, this state of affairs in America today. We lived from the beginning, from the founding of our great country some 240 years ago with controversy, confrontation and conflict. But problems were solved whether political, economic or social through dialogue, with reasonable and well thought out compromise, the good of the nation always put first. We elected politicians who for the most part were leaders with full respect and love for America. But today, things are radically different. We now have a war for power and prestige. We see our Constitution in disarray. The Rule of Law is broken at every turn. We now see states and even local communities defying the federal government, doing their best to protect their borders and essentially live as they choose. We see nullification. There are sanctuary cities which build walls for the protection of illegal immigrants and illegal conduct. We see judges acting independently, deciding politically often far from the clear mandates of the law. We have a dysfunctional Congress, unable to agree and pass legislation so sorely needed by our great country. We have a Presidency which has for the last decade issued orders and established regulations with the PRESIDENTIAL PEN AND PHONE as the President wishes no matter the Congress. If Obama can do it, so can Trump. The sense of disorder, uncertainty, insecurity, fear for the future becomes of greater concern every day. You and I have no choice, my fellow Americans. We must stand and fight, FIGHT! The battle is on. The progressive, radical left has given us fair warning, sounding the trumpets that they and the Democratic Party will fight tooth and nail to make America what they want it to be. What they want it to be is not what conservatives, Christians and Republicans want America to be. So, like it or not, the fight is on. YOU have to join, you have to stand, you have to do what is right for America. And:


FREEDOM is at stake. Protect those freedoms or as President Reagan warned us time and again, those freedoms once lost are never to return.

So, what will you do? Whatever, my fellow Americans. Please do something for the America you love, anything to preserve, protect and defend the way of life we so marvelously enjoy.
