Is the Deep State Real? These People Say Yes!
In an op-ed for Fox News, former Utah Rep Jason Chaffetz charged that the Deep State is real – and he has come face to face with them while in Congress. Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe also released his first installment of an undercover investigation regarding the deep state with Stuart Karaffa, a card- carrying member of the Democratic Socialist party in the State Department who believes he is there to “f*** sh** up” on every level. No doubt Snopes will try to twist these stories, but the facts are the facts.
“The Deep State is not just a conspiracy theory. No less than our very system of separation of powers and checks and balances is at stake.” Jason Chaffetz
The government moved from protecting Barack Obama to actively trying to destroy President Trump while Chaffetz was in office.
My first run-in with the Deep State happened weeks after the Benghazi terrorist attacks of September 11, 2012. In an encounter highlighted in my book, I went face-to-face with a lawyer sent to Libya by Hillary Clinton’s State Department to act as a spy and ensure I did not ever get to the truth of what happened on that tragic night.
When I refused to allow this State Department lawyer to participate in a briefing for which his security clearance was insufficient, he immediately called Clinton Chief of Staff and fixer Cheryl Mills to demand entrance to the meeting. His real purpose was to intimidate witnesses from being candid with a congressman.
I won that battle and got the information I sought. But the effort to speak to witnesses, review documents, and debunk the ridiculous and false narratives told by political appointees and perpetuated by their Deep State allies was an uphill battle.
FOIA Requests – Pages and Pages of Nothingburgers
The bureaucrats working overtime to make sure the documents that really tell the truth to Americans will never “see the light of day.” And the media “dutifully” tells all the number of pages released.
“If you come across embarrassing information or whatever, (the chief counsel) will just hide it and come up with an exemption; because if you cover it with a FOIA exemption it’s so hard for the other person to challenge it, and it will be costly and difficult for them to challenge it, and they’re probably never going to see it anyway, so you just get away with it. That’s the way it’s done.” TSA Director
Chaffetz charged that documents in an FOIA request are heavily redacted and someone comes up with a reason to make sure no one can see them. “In reality, many of those pages will either be fully redacted, duplicates of other pages, or irrelevant to the investigation.”
It’s one way the deep state gets away with their subversive activities. On Tuesday, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas released the first of a series regarding the deep state. There are people planted deep withint the administration who are not there to help accomplish the goals of the administration. In fact, just the opposite.
Project Veritas – subversive elements in the government
Two undercover reporters sat with State Department employee Stuart Karaffa at a restaurant as he laughed and bragged about his place inside the Trump admnistration to “resist at every level” and “f***
sh** up.” He is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and actively works on his anti-Trump political activities after work, which may be a violation of the Hatch Act. He is a “ranking member” of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (Metro DC DSA.)
We are paying for his employment with our taxpayer money. Karaffa thought it was funny to mention that federal employees “can’t be fired.” He laughed about not creating much paper trail to his work for the DSA.
So yes, unbelievers, the deep state exists. It tries very hard to take down our President and everything he tries to do. Will there be any documents from the FISA debacle released by the DOJ? Will Rosenstein refuse to declassify them? If this pattern remains true, someone might want to snag the paper out of the shredder bins …
