Anatomy of the Deep State

The Deep State does not consist of the entire government.
It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street. All these agencies are coordinated by the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council. Certain key areas of the judiciary belong to the Deep State, such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, whose actions are mysterious even to most members of Congress. BillMoyers.com

Your Say

Synonymous with Stalinism.

And all these agencies which should be servant to the vox populi are accountable to who? I'll tell ya, accountable to the half-breed faggot we have in the White House and his meat puppets. Executive Orders and Martial Law will see to that. You really think there will be another election?

Hmph, they all should get a punch in the face. Actually they deserve to be horsewhipped and pissed on. I'll leave that to the Young Lions, those stalwart and outspoken patriots that will fight for our country's freedom. I can envision the barricades coming up and all those patriotic songs being sung as we resist and overcome Leviathan. Right? Uh, right?

After reading to the end, the most striking part was how little attention given to the totalitarian nature and power of the non-Defense sectors of government (as in it was completely ignored), not even a glimmer of the IRS and DOJs abuse of power domestically, and how much unvarnished hatred the author has for the Tea Party.

Then I remembered it was Bill Moyers' site, and it all made sense.
