Trump Is Fighting To Save The Deep State

While claiming to fight “The Deep State” and drain the swamp, Donald Trump fights to save a controversial law which serves as a powerful tool for The Deep State.

The first year of Donald Trump’s presidency is coming to a conclusion and all but his most blind supporters can now see that he is more of the same – a continuation of the puppet in chief bowing to the interests of the military-industrial complex and the banking/financial elite. The collective interests of these groups (and their front organizations) – as well as their connection to corporate and state power, academia, and media – are what have come to be known as the New World Order, the Shadow Government, or more recently, The Deep State.

Since coming into office, Donald Trump has continued the Deep State plan of military expansion into the Middle East and Africa. This expansion has led to an increase in airstrikes, drone attacks, and the deaths of innocent people. He has also continued to place banking executives from Goldman Sachs in powerful positions and just today called Janet Yellen, the current head of the Federal Reserve, “excellent.” I won’t hold my breath for him to audit, let alone end the debt enslavement created via the Federal Reserve system. He even appointed a former Bilderberg attendee.

Trump has also played the role of great deceiver by promising to fix America’s illegal immigration problem while actually promoting the building of a border wall complete with drone surveillance, automatic license plate readers, biometric scanning via the face and retina, and DNA collection for VISA applicants. Under the guise of “border security,” Americans are being duped into caging themselves in an increasingly totalitarian police and surveillance state.

However, Trump is not finished firmly wedging himself in the swamp he repeatedly promised to drain. One area where we can clearly see Donald Trump fighting to support the status quo and The Deep State is surveillance. I predicted this much when Trump first appointed Jeff Sessions to Attorney General back in January.

More specifically, Trump and his administration now supporting the extension of the controversial section 702 of the the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is scheduled to end on December 31st. According the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Section 702 “allows the NSA to collect emails, browser history and chat logs of Americans. Section 702 also allows other agencies, like the FBI, to search through that data without a warrant. Those searches are called ‘backdoor searches.’”As revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013, Section 702 also authorizes two Internet surveillance programs known as PRISM and Upstream. PRISM gathers messaging data sent via Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and other tech companies, while Upstream taps into the so-called backbone of the Internet to gather data on targets.

While Congress debates several bills regarding the future of Section 702, the Trump administration continues to support the dangerous, unconstitutional measure. In early September, Aaron Kesel wrote for Activist Post:

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is urging Congress to “promptly” reauthorize section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) scheduled to expire at the end of this year.

The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Dan Coats also signed the letter, addressed to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

They added: “Reauthorizing this critical authority is the top legislative priority of the Department of Justice and the Intelligence Community. As publicly reported by the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, information collected under one particular section of FAA, Section 702, produces significant foreign intelligence that is vital to protect the nation against international terrorism and other threats.”

Sessions was a vocal proponent of surveillance well before he joined the Trump administration and he is far from the only one advocating extending of section 702. Trump’s new FBI director Christopher Wray has been promoting terror porn in an attempt to scare Americans into ignoring the voices calling for reform or abolishing of FISA and 702. The EFF wrote this in response to Wray’s attempt to paint 702 as a constitutional program.

In order to get ahead of the opposition to the bills, Trump held closed door meetings with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, NSA Director Mike Rogers, and FBI Director Christopher Wray. The Washington Post reports:

the Senate committee on Tuesday, during a closed session, agreed unanimously to impose a new procedural hurdle for the FBI to review and use Americans’ emails and other communications collected under the authority. But the measure, proposed by Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), the panel’s ranking Democrat, does not go as far as civil liberties advocates say is necessary.

It does not require the FBI to obtain a warrant before searching for Americans’ communications. Nor does it require the court to demonstrate that those Americans may be engaged in criminal activity or acting as agents of a foreign power.

Instead of any meaningful reform, the Senate version of the bill to reform Section 702 asks the FBI to submit a request to the the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court if they end up in possession of an Americans data. This is the very definition of the wolf guarding the hen house because the FISA court is notoriously secretive with little oversight. Critics say a lack of transparency has allowed various federal agencies to run mass surveillance programs with no accountability.

The courts were originally created under the the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) in response to reports produced by the 1975 Church Committee. The Senate panel was tasked with investigating the foreign and domestic surveillance operations by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during the 1970s.  The Church Committee also released detailed reports on the governments Counter Intelligence Programs (COINTELPRO) that were used against activists and influential voices of opposition during the 1950s and ’60s.

The FISA Court is a glaring example of The Deep State. A secret court run by secret judges who interpret the law behind closed doors and who refuse to publicly release their findings or their interpretation. Section 702 is only one of many tools at the hands of The Deep State and the Trump administration is doing its best to allow the program to continue.

      that’s what worried me about Trump – he’s a self-declared Zionist

  • THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH YOU DON’ FA

    Trump is nothing short of being controlled opposition for the khazarian mafia.

  • Trump is going to have a hard time wrestling the Deep State away from the Shadow Government. http://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=11&v=XHbrOg092GA

  • Cynical Old Bastard

    “…all but his most blind supporters can now see that he is more of the same…”

    Um… yeah… Duh. They all are. Damn. We tried to explain this to y’all.

    • tgmoney

      You sound like there was another Choice. I am a supporter but not blind. I dont kow what his deal would be or is but there was a shot that it could be a change. If he is not what he claims to be then we are just screwed all the same. so in the end the I told you so’s are pretty pointless but I agree nobody should be blindly supporting and ignoring anything negative. Its up to America waking up and acting as one to have change. not idealize anyone in Govt.

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        That’s the whole problem and the point many of us were making during the selection and are still making now… there is no other choice. It’s a clear-cut thing. No matter who… ahem… wins the selection, the people lose. It’s a damned if you do and damned if you don’t situation.

        Excellent, thought inducing comment, TG.

        • tgmoney

          We were in the delusion for many years that we elected our leaders and they worked for us. In all honesty we work for them. The presidents have turned out to be nothing more than the mouth piece for the Real people running the Country and the world.. Have you ever noticed no matter who you elect, All the crap they say to get elected. The same agenda has always moved forward. Keep in mind aside from Regan and Trump and all of the presidents have came from the CIA or the Counsel on Foreign Relations. We dont elect our president, It is all for show. With Trump who knows but do you see whats happening? The huge pedophile Rape culture is coming out? This is only scratching the surface.. If allowed to it is going to lead right to the top. There is a lot more stuff happening. Look at the DNC they are eating their own at this point. This is why they are trying to get rid of Trump at all costs. So although you may see Trump do this or that or have this person or that person in his administration. we dont know how much he is being controlled but I still have hope that he could be the fall guy that brings down the entire corrupt washington DC and if not then not what can we do.. We werent free, we are not free and we will never be free.

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            Here’s what you have to understand about me; I was never in that delusion. Never. Not once. Never believed in Santa Claus, Jesus, the “Civil War” or any other things people tried to lie to me about. Hell, I was picking apart the propaganda on popular and “wholesome” television shows before I was five.

            I’m not like you and others here. I didn’t awaken. I was never asleep.

            No, it’s not been easy for me. I have been harassed, beaten, and even tortured for almost sixty years… simply because I did not comply with “popular” beliefs. In first grade I was beaten because I dared ask a question which conflicted with what the “teacher” was saying.

            No… I am not like you. I can’t even comprehend what it must be like to be like you. You say “we are not free| and will never be free” and don’t even understand the meaning of the words you write. You just write them. But I think you see it now.

            Not being mean, Brother, but the actual definitions of words means a lot. Look up the difference between “liberty” and “freedom.” It’s an eye-opener for most people (if they accept it), trust me.

            Seek out Phil_Ossifer, Landy Fincannon, Rev Draco, and SP88… they write opinion pieces on here too. Puts me to shame most times. They’re really good and I think you’ll fit right in with us. We learn a lot from each other.

            Very much enjoyed your opinion. Please reply more.

          • tgmoney

            Hey Bud I when I said We I did not mean you and me specifically. I mean the population as a whole. Im glad you think critically and dont fall for the okeedoke.

    • Maybe you shouldn’t have put it off until after the nap.

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        LOL. And maybe you should move out of that van down by the river.

        How ya doing D3?

        And who was that “thanks for playing come again moron” asshole? First time I saw you block anybody.

        • I haven’t had a river to be down by for years, since most of the beachfront property is parking prohibitive.
          I’ve got about a dozen blockees, generally those who can’t form intelligent concepts and/or just want to argue to argue.

  • If this is not proof Trump is also a Globalist…
    WAKE UP SHEEPLE !!!

    • Eskimo man

      No one is going to wake up until God shows a sign, but even then the Apocalypse is in motion, and will continue its course.

      • Ah crap another fairy tale sheeple, just stop responding to me.

        • Eskimo man

          Can’t you see what is happening you dummy? Do you know what the one world government is all about, and who will lead it? The only fairy-tale going around these days is the one that excludes God. Yeh right, everything just created itself from nothing and nowhere. Wake up sheeple zombies, you are on the same side as the globalists that control your mind.

  • Eskimo man

    As soon as Trump said he supports Israel, I knew who he was with. Maybe a part of the agenda is to show, through the chaos of the Trump government, that we cannot trust the government, so we need a global governing body to enslave us instead.
