Buchanan on ‘Russiagate’: Only Known Crimes Committed Are Leaks to Media

Columnist Pat Buchanan asks why greater emphasis isn’t being placed on the leaking of classified intelligence to the media concerning the investigation of alleged connections between the Trump campaign and the Russians. If FBI director Comey is unwilling to investigate these illegal leaks, Buchanan suggests a special counsel should.

Spicer Calls Out Media Hypocrisy on ‘Wiretapping’ Allegations

BARNES: The Media, Obama, and the Deep State

Whenever the media loses control over a powerful term, be it “fake news” or “deep state,” they react with infantile rage, and immediately demand cessation of the term in its “unapproved” use. As part of that process, they attempt to restrict its historical application to some definition that delimits its use against their ideological interest. Their attempt to rescript the meaning of words gives new meaning to Orwellian for the media’s would-be Ministry of Information.

Robert Barnes: Obama Encouraged ‘Deep State’ ‘De Facto Coup’ Against Trump

On Friday’s Breitbart News Daily, SiriusXM host Alex Marlow asked attorney Robert Barnes about the campaign of leaks to damage the Trump administration, described by some observers as “deep state” career bureaucrats and/or holdovers from the Obama administration acting as saboteurs. Marlow wondered if there was any legal recourse for the Trump administration to halt this operation.

Virgil: The Deep State Saga Continues — the Battle Between Donald Trump and John McCain

The feud between President Donald Trump and Senator John McCain is heating up. The protagonists on both sides of this fight are intense and determined, and yet if we dig beneath the personalities, we can see an even deeper conflict—an ultimate conflict of visions. And that clash of worldviews, in turn, is full of implications for the behavior of the Deep State in the months and years to come.

Virgil: The Deep State Bumps Off General Flynn. Who’s the Next Target?

The Deep State has done its dirty work, getting rid of Michael Flynn, the now-former national security adviser to President Trump. And so the MSM, having taken direction—even dictation—from the Deep State, is moving in for the kill. The ultimate target, of course, is Trump himself.

Virgil: Minutes of the Deep State Executive Committee on the Permanent Campaign Against Trump

Virgil, in his immortal way, has gained possession of a transcript of the most recent meeting of the Deep State Executive Committee. Although he has been unable to verify this document, or to identify the attendees, he believes it to be an accurate portrayal of ongoing Deep State activities against President Trump. Where appropriate, he has added explanatory hyperlinks.

Virgil: The Deep State Strikes Back: The Permanent Campaign Against Donald Trump

The complex of bureaucrats, technocrats, and plutocrats that we call the Deep State is seeking to torpedo Trump and his agenda. The last thing the Deep State wants to see is the DC swamp being drained. To them, it’s home! Last week, their permanent campaign against Trump heated up, and the flashpoint was a dubious dossier that had been floating around for months.

Virgil: Trump’s Nationalist Vision vs. the Gospel of Globalism

It’s possible, perhaps even likely, that under President Trump we will once again become a nation for all Americans—even Middle Americans. We could yet be the “city on a hill” that Ronald Reagan so eloquent described. That is, a true center-right “Team America,” united in its determination to work hard and do well, with US citizens coming first. Of course, not everyone thinks that what happened on Election Day 2016 was a beautiful thing, because they have been living their lives according to a vision much different than Trump’s economic nationalism.
