Ron and Dan: ‘Thank God for the Deep State’ – CIA Celebrates Coup Against Trump

by | Nov 4, 2019

Former Acting CIA Director John McLaughlin, on a panel with former CIA Director John Brennan, responded to a question about whether the “deep state” was trying to take out President Trump with a quote, “thank God for the deep state.” Everyone laughed. He went on to say that the “intelligence community” is right to take out presidents like Trump because they are selfless patriots only interested in the truth. Does the CIA and other intelligence agencies in the US have the right to overthrow a president if they don’t like him? Is that the kind of government we want? Or should people start going to jail.

The Dogs of War are in Heat

The dogs of war are always in heat. They bark, they gnaw, they kill and breed. Civilisation a chimera, chewing through bones, tearing at flesh, the killers are never in defeat. No matter how well behaved they act, whatever laws claim to be their collar and what kennel...
