Word on the street says The Establishment is setting up Donald Trump.
The mainstream media hates him. Hollywood hates him. The “Intellectual Yet Idiot” academic class hates him. Most importantly, the CIA hates him. So does the rest of the Deep State, or the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy. They did everything possible to prevent Trump first from being elected, then from taking officeupposedly and now from implementing the reforms he promised.
None of it has worked. Trump us not yet winning but he is exposing to the public eye the extent to which supposedly non – political bureaucrats allow their political sympathies to override their objectivity in performance of their duty.
It is already obvious the CIA hates Trump for a very simple reason: he’s threatening to take away their power. Trump wants to de – escalate the tensions between the USA and its main rivals, Russia and China yet since he took office the military and the state security agencies have done even more than the Obama administration was doing to provoke the Russians and Chinese and anger Putin and Xi jinping. Inventing and inflating the so-called “Russian threat” and “yellow peril” is how many thousands of Deep State bureaucrats keep their jobs, inflated salaries and almost unlimited expense accounts.
These people feed at the overflowing trough of the $1 trillion-plus military/security budget. Detente with with Russia and China would put an end to all that .
Trump has said:
“We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments.”
Toppling regimes is the CIA’s bread and butter. No wonder they hate him.
Of course, the feeling is mutual. Trump has used plenty of sharp words to describe the “intelligence community,” which he thinks is staffed by self serving wankers. He’s reportedly aiming to fundamentally restructure the CIA.
Donald Trump is the first president since John F. Kennedy to openly take on the CIA and look how that ended.
After being suckered into the Bay of Pigs disaster in Cuba, JFK said he wanted “to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.”
Kennedy fired CIA Director Allen Dulles. But that was about as far as he got.
JFK, of course, failed to break the Deep State’s grasp on power. In an ironic twist, Allen Dulles would later be appointed to the Warren Commission to investigate Kennedy’s assassination. It was almost half a century before even an approximation of the truth of events on that fateful day in Dallas was officially acknowledged.
