The Russiagate hoax has been a multi-national affair. From Justin Raimondo at antiwar.com:
The conspiracy to overthrow a sitting US President extends far beyond our own “Deep State.” As I’ve been saying in this space for quite some time, it’s been an international team effort from the beginning. Setting aside the British origins of the obscene “dossier” compiled by “ex”-MI6 agent Christopher Steele, we now have further confirmation of foreign involvement in President Trump’s decision to delay (perhaps indefinitely) the declassification of key Russia-gate documents. While US intelligence officials were expected to oppose the move, “Trump was also swayed by foreign allies, including Britain, in deciding to reverse course, these people said. It wasn’t immediately clear what other governments may have raised concerns to the White House.”
But of course the Washington Post knows perfectly well which other governments would have reason to raise “concerns” to the White House. It’s clear from the public record that the following “allies” have rendered the “Resistance” essential assistance at one time or another:
The Democrats have shot themselves in both feet. From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.me:
Yesterday’s dramatic cloture vote to push SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh to a final confirmation vote is one of those political moments of pure victory. It was messy and it was tense, but the ultimate outcome was better than I could have ever originally expected.
Because it’s pretty clear to me that we’re looking at the kind of big operation run on the Democrats and the Soros Group to expose not only their tactics, the classic “Nuts and Sluts” shaming technique, but also in the process crush certain powerful members of the Democratic party which have been the conduit through which ‘the Resistance’ has driven our political process to the point of no return.
Doug Lynn offers a compelling insight into how the collective establishment uses its narratives to keep its hold on power. From Lynn at theburningplatform.com:
We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end.
– George Orwell, “1984”, part 3, chapter 3,
1 : oppressive power especially : oppressive power exerted by government
4 : an oppressive, harsh, or unjust act : a tyrannical act
It is a fact the election of Donald Trump exposed certain undeniable realities in the United States for those willing to see. Perhaps first and foremost of the various revelations is the bona fide existence of The Collective. Also known as the Uniparty or The Establishment, The Collective is comprised of the following: The Democratic Party, Republican’s in Name Only (RINOs), Neo-conservatives (Neocons), the Mainstream Media, the Corporatocracy, globalists, elite bankers and unelected government bureaucrats and officials; also often referred to as The Deep State or Military Industrial Complex.
All of these entities have attained singularity through the decades while, for the most part, retaining some “plausible deniability” of their collusive connectivity prior to the 2016 Presidential Election. But now the veil has been lifted. As The Collective has unified in polar opposition against everything Trump, so has its immorality and lawlessness been additionally exposed; like nude streetwalkers performing dirty tricks in broad daylight on busy corners.

This is one of the better explanations of the Deep State out there. From Doug Casey at internationalman.com:
I’d like to address some aspects of the Greater Depression in this essay.
I’m here to tell you that the inevitable became reality in 2008. We’ve had an interlude over the last few years financed by trillions of new currency units.
However, the economic clock on the wall is reading the same time as it was in 2007, and the Black Horsemen of your worst financial nightmares are about to again crash through the doors and end the party. And this time, they won’t be riding children’s ponies, but armored Percherons.
To refresh your memory, let me recount what a depression is.
Roger Stone, who knows a thing or two about the Deep State, explains what it’s going to take for Trump to defeat it. From Stone at targetliberty.com:
The below essay by long-time political operative Roger Stone is the most important essay I have come across detailing how the Deep State has run counter-operations against Donald Trump, before he was elected president and since. In the essay, Stone also provides suggestions on how Trump should battle the DS.
The lesson here for libertarians is how government Deep State operatives often use laws created “to protect us” to instead protect sectors of central power. The only way to stop these power plays is to eliminate the power centers by shrinking government.
By Roger Stone
During the Presidential Campaign for the 2016 election, then Candidate Trump responded to the anguished cries of The People when he promised to “Drain the Swamp”. While Donald J. Trump knew instinctively that there was rampant corruption in Washington, D.C., it is entirely possible that he was surprised by the levels of vindictiveness and wrath he would eventually encounter.
In a prescient and possibly complicit statement, on January 3, 2017, mere days from Trump’s inauguration, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned the soon-to-be sworn-in President Elect. Schumer said that Donald Trump was being ”really dumb” to question US intelligence agency officials in their handling of the alleged “Russian Hacking” fabrications. Schumer warned: “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community – they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,”. With the benefit of hindsight, we see that the Obama corrupted FBI with assistance from the Obama corrupted CIA tried more than six different ways, and are still trying even now.
The Deep State must be defeated, and that’s priority one. From Justin Raimondo at antiwar.com;
The crisis is upon us, and yet hardly anyone outside of a few old-fashioned liberals sees it. Their view is obscured by the Brobdingnagian figure of Donald J. Trump towering over us all as left and right battle it out in his shadow. Yet the real battle, and the actual combatants, are obscured by this spectacle.
The Deep State – i.e. the constellation of national security agencies and private actors who have directed and maintained our globalist foreign policy since the end of World War II – would have targeted Trump in any case, due to his hostility to their interventionist foreign policy. And yet I believe they would’ve gone after him anyway due to his populist outsider persona, which the self-appointed guardians of the Empire consider dangerous per se. Continue reading
It is good to know that wise Deep Staters are protecting us from the “depredations” of the man we elected to take on the Deep State. From Allan Stevo at lewrockwell.com:
September 5, 2018, the New York Times ran an anonymous op-ed from “a senior White House official,” in which he criticizes Trump as being “anti-democratic.” The senior official goes on to hypocritically explain how he secretly works each day to undermine the duly elected President of the United States.
One such example, according to the anonymous author, is how the deep state saboteurs in the White House successfully provoke aggression with Moscow in order to “frustrate” Trump’s attempt to de-escalate with both Russia and North Korea, long derided targets of neo-con enmity.
Why hasn’t Trump been able to de-escalate tension with Russia as much as he’s wanted to? Because, according to this anonymous deep state bureaucrat, “his national security team knew better” than to allow him to de-escalate. Continue reading
