Alex Newman: Deep State Mole in White House Boasts of Sabotaging Trump
Deep State Mole in White House Boasts of Sabotaging Trump – “Of course, the globalist Deep State always thinks it knows better than the American people.”

A senior official in the Trump administration supposedly admitted in an “anonymous” New York Times piece that he or she, and many other top figures, are deliberately conspiring to sabotage the president’s agenda, an agenda that the American people voted for in the 2016 election. The supposed writer even suggested that members of Trump’s Cabinet had considered calling him crazy and removing him under the 25th Amendment. Assuming the Times is not lying, which is not necessarily a good assumption considering the left-wing paper’s long history of lies, the op-ed confirms once again the existence of a subversive “Deep State” that will defy its own boss — and the American people who constitutionally elected him — to advance a globalist agenda that is unconstitutional and was soundly rejected by voters at the polls. Trump, though, suggested he would be getting the last laugh.
In a series of social-media posts, President Trump responded to the “resistance” op-ed by suggesting there was a good chance it was a fraud, citing the establishment media’s long history of dishonesty and hatred of the current administration. But if it is real, he argued, it is simply evidence that the “Swamp” in Washington, D.C., is desperately fighting back against being drained. It may even be considered treason, Trump suggested. “Does the so-called ‘Senior Administration Official’ really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “I’m draining the Swamp, and the Swamp is trying to fight back. Don’t worry, we will win!”
In a televised statement from the White House during a meeting with county sheriffs, Trump also ridiculed the Times and CNN, the discredited cable news network with collapsing ratings amid 24/7 anti-Trump hysteria. “We have somebody in what I call the failing New York Times talking about he’s part of the resistance within the Trump administration,” Trump said. “This is what we have to deal with. And you know, the dishonest media … it’s really a disgrace.” Trump then went through a litany of good news — employment numbers, manufacturing growth, deregulation, ending ObamaCare’s hated “individual mandate,” starting construction on the wall — before taking aim at the Times and the supposed op-ed writer.
The agenda of the Deep State swamp and its media allies, Trump said, is about “open borders,” allowing America to be overrun with “disaster and crime.” Because Trump opposes those things, “they don’t like Donald Trump,” the president continued. “And I don’t like them, because they’re very dishonest people,” he said. “Remember this also, about the New York Times: When I won, they were forced to apologize to their subscribers. They wrote a letter of apology — it was the first time anybody has ever done it — because they covered the election incorrectly. So if the failing New York Times has an anonymous editorial — can you believe it? ‘Anonymous,’ meaning gutless — a gutless editorial.” He also slammed the “Deep State” and suggested that Americans would win the battle against it in the end.
In the editorial, Trump’s self-styled “senior official,” of whom there are hundreds in an administration, boasted that “many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda.” “I would know,” he added. “I am one of them.” While conceding that Trump has already “made America safer and more prosperous” with his policies, the “resistance” activist claims that the president also “continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.” That is why “many” of Trump’s appointees, according to the alleged mole, are working to thwart the president’s policies that they disagree with. As examples of Trump’s supposed bad behavior, the Deep State operative points to labeling the “fake news” media as the “enemy of the people.” And yet, surveys consistently show that almost all Americans realize that most of the mass media is lying to them.
“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t,” the supposed “senior official” claimed, citing as examples an array of foreign-policy positions Trump campaigned on, such as non-hostile relations with Russia, that the Deep State is working to subvert. “He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.” Of course, the globalist Deep State always thinks it knows better than the American people.
Ironically, the piece goes on to glorify the late neoconservative warmonger John McCain, a fervent globalist and a key operative with multiple Deep State organizations. Even the briefest survey of the McCain-backed foreign-policy disasters of recent decades would suggest that the author of the piece must have been smoking something — or reading too much propaganda in the New York Times. Consider, among the recent examples, that McCain was in Libya in 2009 meeting with dictator Moammar Gadhafi and plotting how to funnel more U.S. weapons and military aid to the brutal regime. Just two years later, McCain switched sides and was openly supporting an uprising against Gadhafi led by self-proclaimed al-Qaeda leaders who had been killing U.S. troops not long before. The disaster in Syria followed a similar course. And Iraq. And Afghanistan. Continue Reading
