Default Thiessen: The ‘deep state’ exists — and it’s made up of White House officials

Accepting the existense of the anonymous political assassin published in the NYT means admitting the existence of the deep state.

Quote:
In a New York Times op-ed, an unnamed “senior official in the Trump administration” admits that he and others “in and around the White House” are “working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda” and thwart “Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.” The author declares that he and his co-conspirators are being “unsung heroes” fighting on the inside to “preserve our democratic institutions.” In fact, they are doing precisely the opposite.
Like every other statement President Trump makes the Resistance media reflexively denounced his assertion of a deep state actively working to destroy his administration as proof of his crazed paranoia. Don't expect to see critics apologize or retract their statements now that the deep state has been revealed. Being Resistance means never having to say you are sorry.


In typical deep state Resistance ends justify the means rationale for undermining the duly elected President the editorial author attempts to cloak their sabotage as patriotism.

Quote:
The Constitution vests executive power in the president, not “senior officials.” Any authority these appointees have comes from the president, at whose pleasure they serve. For an unelected appointee to hide documents or refuse to carry out the lawful orders of the elected president is not noble. It is not patriotic. It is an assault on democracy.
Like the rest of the deep state operatives the anonymous author, if they exist, ought to show the courage of their convictions by resigning. But like the Resistance zealots who first denied the deep state as a conspiracy theory but now embrace it, only criticism of Trump is allowed.

I'm not sure why the op ed dude came out (albeit annon) now. Is it supposed to make us feel better?

We all assumed some underlings were running the country due to the innate incompetence of trump and the unwillingness of congress to take him out.

There is no evidence to back up the cowardly anonymous op ed. All the evidence points to Trump charting a course to fulfill his campaign promises in spite of the deep state toadies.

Care to comment on the fact the existence of the deep state being proved? Or, at least the appearance of the deep state. Perchance an apology for all the derision heaped upon anyone who recognized the existence of the deep state?

I think the deep state might have existed. Might still. But I don't think it would try to take Trump out with a letter to the editor. (See, RFK, Nixon, etc.)

No comment on the derision falsely heaped upon Trump and others for recognizing the existence of the deep state? Of course not, the Resistance never apologizes or corrects its falsehood it just moves on to its next attack on Trump.

The Resistance is dedicated to taking Trump out by whatever means necessary including violence. The anonymous author explicitly claims to be part of the Resistance. It follows their goal is to take Trump out.
