Progressives are hoping that the U.S. national intelligence agencies will take out their personal animus toward President Donald Trump by leaking information collected from their surveillance activities to damage his reputation and his presidency. The Deep State, having won over the very people once opposed to it, is quickly taking over.
The FBI is reportedly declaring “war” on Trump and vowing revenge on the president for firing its director James Comey.
As The Washington Post reported: One intelligence official who works on Russian espionage matters said they were more determined than ever to pursue such cases. Another said Comey’s firing and the subsequent comments from the White House are attacks that won’t soon be forgotten. Trump had ‘essentially declared war on a lot of people at the FBI,’ one official said. ‘I think there will be a concerted effort to respond over time in kind.'”
The shadow civil war, then, is underway.
Left-wingers do not seem interested in the threat to constitutional democracy, or the potential illegality, that such vindictive measures by the FBI would present. Leftists, in concert with establishment Republicans, seem to think that the intelligence community is their own personal weapon to settle scores. The confusion of anti-Trump politics — the elevation of hatred and pettiness over any coherent ideology — is on full display.
Oliver Willis, a former Media Matters operative who now works for pro-Clinton dirt-slinger David Brock’s ShareBlue operation, hinted Thursday morning that the “dirt” might be forthcoming.
Various reactions to Willis’ tweet urged the intelligence agencies to act on the vindictive plot. One keyboard activist stated that the dirt will “come out soon.”
They have it and it will come out soon.

There are some big fans of the FBI’s weaponization, particularly among Rachel Maddow’s viewers.
If the idiot doesn't he should. He will know when the FBI is coming for him!

Another prevailing sentiment on the Internet — aside from cheerleading for Deep State sabotage — is the idea that Trump is dumb for daring to ruffle the feathers of the entrenched government bureaucrats whose power has unimaginable reach. Trump must be an idiot for trying to clean up the corruption in our Deep State agencies.
Lawmaking Democrats are just as brazen about what they’re doing. Consider the victory lap Hillary Clinton took when the Deep State knocked General Michael Flynn out of the White House, which Clinton adviser Philippe Reines made clear was motivated by Flynn’s son tweeting about the anti-Clinton “Pizzagate” conspiracy.
Philippe's got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news… https://t.co/a02sXiaHfp

We are officially through the looking glass.
The Left, which railed against the Patriot Act and the Deep State shenanigans of the Bush administration, is now in confederacy with those very Deep State agencies. The hyper-partisan nature of our political discourse has convinced progressives — the very people once opposed to the Deep State takeover — that our overseers with security clearances are now the good guys. Divide and conquer.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is not merely used to weaken and try to impeach the president. Now it is used as an active tool to aide the Deep State takeover by convincing the resistance that the Deep State is actually their hero. The progressives — tribal, emotional, and barely versed in the ideology they claim to espouse — have been played.
In another era, before our school systems went to Hell, there would be bipartisan outrage at the FBI for declaring a personal “war” on the President of the United States. There would at least be an acknowledgment of the gravity of the situation. People would at least be calling this “war” what it really is: a new Civil War.
But no. Anti-Bush progressives are on the side of a vindictive rogue FBI and CIA. So-called libertarians, entranced by the illusory wonders of globalism, have taken up muskets with the neocons. The presidency is marginalized, the country is made out to be a joke on the world stage. And the Deep State crushes dissent by winning over the dissenters.
Is it cliche to quote George Orwell in times like these? Yes. But it’s cliche because George Orwell is the most relevant writer who ever lived.
“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
