Trump and the Deep State: The no-good, very bad, odious, unspeakably ugly truth


Press TV

US President Donald Trump himself is very much a product of the ugliest forces in the deep state – a loosely organized cabal who has taken power away from the official government, according to American scholar and Veterans Today Editor Dr. Kevin Barrett.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Friday accused the so-called deep state of attempting to undermine the government of President Trump.

The term deep state, or derin devlet in Turkish, originated in 1950s Turkey, refers to a secretive network of influential members of government agencies or the military that operates outside the democratic system.

Dr. Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11 and founding member of Truth Jihad, told Press TV that “Spicer has officially announced that the deep state exists. So this is a kind of a milestone in American history.”

“The term deep state has been almost been as unknown as terms like false flag, which is another term that is now going viral, and is being used by the mainstream media as everybody knows what it means,” he stated.

“The term deep state refers to very politically powerful people who essentially operate off the radar and behind the scenes, generally ignoring, flouting and breaking the law as they do so,” the analyst explained.

Peter Dale Scott popularizes ‘deep state’ term

“Peter Dale Scott, professor from the University of California, is probably the researcher who has done the most to popularize this term, the deep state.  And he came to this whole concept out of his analysis of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy,” Dr. Barrett said.

“Now today mainstream journalists and historians like David Talbot and others accept that President John F. Kennedy was not murdered by a lone nut, namely Lee Harvey Oswald, but was instead overthrown in a coup d’etat by elements of the American deep state, including former CIA director Allan Dulles, the focus of Talbot’s book [The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government], and James Jesus Angleton, the counter-intelligence chief who was a liaison between the Israeli Mossad and the CIA, as well as elements of organized crime that regularly work with these elements of the CIA,” he stated.

“So it was kind of a multinational intelligence operation with a major level of Israeli participation as Michael Collins Piper explains in his book, Final Judgment[:The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy],” he stated.

“Peter Dale Scott doesn’t go all the way with the Israeli angle, but he coined the term, deep state, based on his research into the JFK assassination, and then later the September 11 coup d’etat in which essentially the same types of elements of the US-Israeli deep state blew up the World Trade Center with explosives, and staged a non-existent hijacking, rather than the (alleged) suicide hijackings — in fact there were no Arab hijackers on the planes – another gross deception like the Kennedy assassination…or we should say  assassinations to include the killing of Bobby Kennedy as well in 1968 — again, killed by the CIA and Israeli linked people tied to organized crime,” the analyst noted.

“So these are the kinds of issues that come up in the study of deep state. And it is very interesting that today we have a president, Donald Trump, who has one of his lead advisers – the political dirty tricks operator Roger Stone, who has written a book [The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ] about how Lyndon B. Johnson was part of the killing of his predecessor John F. Kennedy,” he said.

“And now we have Sean Spicer basically admitting to the world that deep state exists. Spicer hasn’t gone all the way with this and admitted that the deep state blew up the Twin Towers to drag us into these wars for Israel that followed. But instead he is sort of trying to point fingers at Obama and his people as tied to the deep state. Now that’s a very superficial analysis,” Dr. Barrett pointed out.

“In fact Donald Trump himself is very much a product of the very worst and ugliest forces in the deep state,” the commentator said.

“Donald Trump was created by Roy Cohn, the mafia boss who owned the corrupt judges and cops of New York, and who was the direct liaison between J. Edgar Hoover and American media, and who organized a pedophile blackmail operation for the CIA. Roy Cohn is the key player in that. And Roy Cohn is the man who made Donald Trump,” he argued.

“So perhaps Sean Spicer should reveal a lot more about the deep state, including the ties of the worst elements of deep state to his boss, President Trump, than he is so far willing to talk about,” the scholar said in his concluding remarks.

  1. About one third of African Americans brought here as slaves were Muslims – meaning virtually everyone with any African-American blood (meaning a great many “whites” as well as “hispanics” etc.) is descended from Muslims. Nearly half of the Muslims in the US – meaning millions – are African American. Others, like myself, are from Unitarian (meaning basically Muslim) backgrounds going back to Ralph Waldo Emerson and before. Islam is the real American religion, the one will eventually end racism and teach Americans to love Jesus again (as all Muslims do).

  2. The same sort of illegal use of force exists at basically all levels of government, state, city, town, etc., not just federal. This is well documented for large corrupt cities like Chicago and New York going back a century or more where Mafia thugs have basically taken over them. Much of this is embodied in a single word: extortion. ex·tor·tion1
    “the practice of obtaining something, especially money, through force or threats.”
    synonyms: blackmail, shakedown, exaction
    Powered by OxfordDictionaries · © Oxford University Press The use of force is illegal for ordinary citizens to use against other citizens or government, but approved for government to use against citizens, a one sided unfair situation. If you don’t pay your taxes, government will take your property. If you take money to a bank they claim is fake, they focibly take the money without a hearing in violation of the Constitution. The inspection office denies electric power if the owner fails to do certain other things which have nothing to do with it; all these are examples of extortion. Many more could be provided.

  3. The late Wayne Barrett documented Trump’s corrupt activities for years:
    “Similarly, in his deposition in the federal discrimination case, Trump refused to acknowledge responsibility for accepting or rejecting individual tenants. Those statements were a material part of his testimony since they went to the heart of the case — Trump’s ability to control the discriminatory practices of his companies.
    Shortly after he’d given his deposition, he was interviewed by a field investigator for the secretary of state. The interview had nothing to do with the federal case; the investigator was trying to determine if Trump met the experience requirement for a real-estate broker’s license. The report states: “Mr. Trump further stated that he supervises and controls the renting of all apartments owned by the Trump organization…During my interview with applicant he showed me hundreds of files…Each contained numerous leases both for commercial and residential tenants…and rental records, all of which contained applicant’s signature and handwriting.” Trump’s lawyer, Mathew Tosti, also claimed in a letter to the secretary of state that Trump had “negotiated numerous leases for apartments.”
    Yet he’d testified in federal court:
    Government: “Do you ever have anything to do with rental decisions in individual cases?
    Con’t. below:

    • Con’t. from above:
      Yet he’d testified in federal court:
      Government: “Do you ever have anything to do with rental decisions in individual cases?
      Trump: “No, I really don’t.”
      Donald Trump is a user of other users. The politician and his moneychanger feed on each other. The moneychanger trades private dollars for access to public ones. Trump, Sunshine, Lindenbaum, and their counterparts Carey and Beame are classic expressions of this relationship. The transactions that result are contained in the father’s story of Trump Village and in next week’s account of Trump’s Manhattan conquests.” Quoted from the link above. The late Wayne Barrett was a top investigative journalist who documented Trump’s corrupt carrier for decades. He also wrote a book about him.

    • Numerous other examples of lying and cheating, for many years, with large amounts of money involved, are documented by this top investigative journalist the late Wayne Barrett. But instead of being penalized and prosecuted and jailed and fined as most ordinary citizens would have been, Trump was rewarded in the corrupt cesspool New York. That he has now been “elected” president confirms the dictum of the late Laurence J. Peter, Ph.D. of the University of Southern California, “Everyone rises to their level of incompetece” or in the vernacular, “The Scum Rises to the Top”. If Trump elbowed his way to the “top” in New York by lying and cheating the public out of public money, do you think his behavior will change as president of the U.S.? Do you believe in the tooth fairy?

  4. Cohn was undoubtedly a player in the murder of the Kennedy brothers. Von Hoffman, in his mainstream biography of “Citizen Cohn,” says that the Bobby vs. Cohn feud was so extreme that it couldn’t have possibly ended without one of them dead. (Attorney General Bobby threw all of his power into trying to convict Cohn, and missed by one juror.)
