The Fall of the Deep State
and 1989’s Fall of Communism

Original Article

The collapse of the figurative and literal wall between East and West Germany was chief among the upheavals in those final weeks of 1989. Not even a year out of office and Reagan was magnificently proven correct in his understanding of basic humanity: people want to be free. Apart from one major exception, the oppressed behind the Iron Curtain that autumn overcame their regimes without bloodshed and violence.

I could not then imagine that precisely thirty years later a caricature of upheaval would be transpiring in my own country.“Resist!” is screamed by

The USSR went down, but the supporters of communism in the US and Europe simply changed their rhetoric. They are now known as the Democrat Party, the Media, the Feminists, and of course, the Climate Change movement. If the Deep State goes down but is not crushed (as in: imprisoned, including ringleaders starting with O and C), then it will simply metastasize and shapeshift and continue to subvert in other devious forms, like communist sympathizers are still doing. Deplorables fervently trust that the Trump Administration understands this, and understands the historic stakes if Deep State criminals are let off the hook with only reprimands. If that happens, MAGA dies, deader than the USSR.

After this so-called IG Report, I'm afraid that our Deep State will have to be put down forcibly.

The Deep State hasn't fallen yet. It's still plenty dangerous to the country and should be dealt with accordingly.

Nice analogy. More: 1989 featured the fax, which was hard to eavesdrop on. Now we have alternative media (Lucianne et al) competing with the semi official NYT. And YouTube. Down with the nomenklatura!

Indeed. The brazen, corrupt Democrats should be mindful of the comparison of our vote for President Trump to the fall of Berlin Wall. Because if they don't, and they foolishly continue this coup against the will of the American people, the next comparison for them might be with the consequences for the Ceaucescus.

We will never defeat the deep state until we identify it's source of nourishment and cut it off. The deep state exists because our politicians discovered how to connect a tap into our wealth. They sell favor to all willing to pay, foreign and domestic. Book deals, foundations, special tax breaks, special treatment by agencies, its all a giant mess. Here's what needs to be done: Examine every single member of congress and look at their wealth including close family and associates who may serve as proxies for shelter, before they were first elected, look at it now and identify how much they got from sources other than official compensation. Then dig deep into how that was obtained. We must by law make any source of a conflict of interest a crime with such severe consequences up to and including death in the case of foreign interests, that nobody but a dedicated patriot would want the job. Of course this must include the rest of their lives so they can't delay and duck. I get the term limit idea but if they were restricted to what they made in office serving our interests we wouldn't need term limits. What if a party were to form with that as the basis of their platform? Don't both democrat and republican commoners all clamor for the end of special interest? That could be the GOP under a Trumpian revival. Most certainly not the RINO GOP as we know it.

"the comforts and careers of the petty tyrants in Washington may soon be just as crumbled" It's possible. The "counter revolutionaries" have exposed themselves and their desperation and incompetence. That has been helpful because, shielded by the propaganda media, the American People had not fully seen what they were doing. The People want to have faith in their government and are having a hard time believing how corrupt it is. Trump has told them. There have been hints of what is going on. But, heck, Trump has a vested interest in saying such things, just like any elected official. To the rescue comes the counter revolution. It's hard to stage a revolution in total secret. It has to come out of the closet. To set the narrative, the media has to cover it. The People wonder, could the counter revolutionaries be right? But then comes an unbroken string of embarrassing failures. A report generated by Revolutionary Storm Troopers yields nothing but whining. The "leader" of the comes before the public and appears as a doddering fool. NO American is charged with any of the crimes being investigated. Many of the cases are falling apart due to incompetence and obvious malfeasance. Along come the House to pick up the charge. On exhibit are witlesses that have witnessed nothing. When questioned they admit that no laws have been bent, let alone broken, and the President is well within his power to do what he did. But, they close with a whine, they disagree with what their boss did. On exhibit are secret gatherings in basement rooms and rigid blocking of rebuttal witnesses. Not on exhibit is the "whistleblower", he-who-must-not-be-named (Eric Ciaramella) who is supposed to be protected at all costs from the wrath of Trump? Dismissed is his importance, partly because Schiff, the chairman of the Star Chamber inquisition, met with him to set this all up and that might be a wee bit embarrassing as well as corrupt. Also absent is any following of reasonable rules of exculpatory inquiry. Now the American People SEE the counter revolutionaries and their intent. They see they have NO EVIDENCE and inept witlesses but will push forward in a purely partisan exercise. In addition, along the way, the criminal deeds of some of the revolutionaries has been brought to light. In their gross ineptitude, the counter revolution has done more damage to themselves than Trump and has brought to the American People's attention a clearly partisan and unwarranted attack on a President duly elected by the People. November 2020 will be the time for The People to comment on the counter revolution. I suspect it will be as figuratively devastating as the fall of the Soviet state was to the Ceausescus.

The fall of the deep state cannot happen soon enough. Indeed, it is coming, but, sadly, with no indictments in sight just yet. However, as other Ldotters astutely point out, never assume for a minute that the deep staters, the dims, the msm, the globalists, Soros, Xi, and Putie will simply give up and go home. Once a political cancer like this has metastasized, it is never completely gone for good despite best efforts to remove it. But, now that the left realizes it cannot brainwash and intimidate us to conform to their dogma, what next? Crashing the financial system and stock market and thus bringing America to its knees may be next. And for what. Just for the ugly fun of doing it and for power. We need to salvage our education system which morphed years ago into the leftist indoctrination centers we have today. Particularly at the high school and college levels. Treating the symptoms is a good start, but, cure the disease at the source.

I don’t see it. The FBI and CIA are all-powerful. House and Senate are in cahoots with them. Comey, McCabe, Sally Yates, Strozk, Lisa, Ohr, Nellie, Brennan are all certified as innocent. Our champion Trump accused of obstruction of Congress and sent to be judged by corrupt Senators who have found the method to enrich their families with our taxes. Google, Facebook, YouTube, silence US. Just donated $500 to Donaldjtrump, and you can too.

Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the population of the Russian Federation has recaptured its strong belief in God. The government has spent many rubles rebuilding churches that the Soviets had destroyed. There are now over 200 million Orthodox church goers in tat nation. The American Media, however, has continued to portray Russian and the Soviets Union as the same thing. I is now difficult to believe any story from the "news".

Let's hope that some might get the same treatment that the Romanian dictator got. But, not likely. #13, you make some good points, but IME, the rebuilt churches (and there are many, shining, beautiful examples) were mostly funded by local oligarchs currying favor with the people and probably attempting the same with God. Often the new church was one of the major tourist sites in the city, so I visited many new ones in my spare time, and a number of them which were over a thousand years old, too. Attending Easter services at a 1200 year old church in Yerevan, which had literally been hidden from the soviets by building other buildings close around it, later removed, is a memory that will always stay with me. I was surprised how many people were literally thirsty for knowledge about Christianity, and a fellow businessman spent a lot of his free time discussing Christianity with those who wanted to know more. In know that he led at least 3 or 4 to be Christians and dramatically change their lives, two of them in Kiev. And I worked with one brilliant young Russian physicist who was definitely going to church every Sunday with his wife and kids.

NEW YORK— A common but increasingly mighty and very busy little word, “they,” has an accolade all its own.The language mavens at Merriam-Webster have declared the personal pronoun their word of the year based on a 313% increase in look-ups on the company’s search site, Merriam-Webster.com, this year when compared with 2018. “I have to say it’s surprising to me,” said Peter Sokolowski, a lexicographer and Merriam-Webster’s editor at large, ahead of Tuesday’s announcement. “It’s a word we all know and love.

President Trump signed an executive order aiming to reduce incidents of anti-Semitism on college campuses in the United States. His executive order classified the Jewish people as an ethnic group in the U.S., rather than just a religious group. Under this new classification, universities must respond to anti-Semitic discrimination or risk opening themselves up to a loss of federal funding under Title VI.Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act says, “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving
