Columnist Jonah Goldberg, who was a proud Never Trumper in 2016 that wanted to give the presidency to Hillary Clinton, published an op/ed in the National Review on Friday dispelling the notion of the deep state.
Despite the fact that unelected federal bureaucrats have been trying to reverse the 2016 presidential election ever since President Trump obtained office, Goldberg wants conservatives to forget about that and go back to trusting the FBI and CIA.
“The sort of coup that some on the right are talking about — which, if successful, would result in the vice president lawfully becoming president and Trump’s Cabinet staying in place — isn’t a coup,” Goldberg wrote.
“It’s not particularly deep state-ish either, given that the people leading it are democratically elected legislators publicly following not just the rules but also the wishes of the people who elected them,” he added.
Goldberg may be setting the stage to support the impeachment witch hunt against President Trump, as he continues to criticize the President frequently despite the incredible results he has achieved while being undermined by the fifth column in Washington D.C.
“Deep staters are now those who follow the rules in ways inconvenient to Trump’s personal desires or political ambitions. It would be too confusing to say that Trump is the real deep state operative here since he was lawfully elected,” Goldberg wrote.
Meanwhile, the New York Times now admits and celebrates the existence of the deep state, which they thank publicly for subverting the will of the voters.
They published this in October:
For the last two weeks, diplomats have been walking through secure doors in the basement of the United States Capitol, defying the objection of their politically appointed superiors as they answer questions from members of the House impeachment inquiry.
The inquiry itself began in response to a whistle-blower who raised alarms about the administration’s efforts to pressure Ukraine for political purposes. That whistle-blower is a C.I.A. officer who seems to be, like many of those testifying, a career civil servant.
The president and his allies have responded with fury. Those damning testimonials are part of a political vendetta by “Never Trumper” bureaucrats, members of a “deep state” bent on undermining the will of the people, they assert.
But what is this “deep state”? Far from being a tool of political corruption, the Civil Service was created to be an antidote to the very kind of corruption and self-dealing that seems to plague this administration.
While Goldberg may play naive about the deep state in an attempt to dupe conservatives, it is likely that he is pushing the same agenda as the Democrats. They want the coup attempt against President Trump to be successful, so Democrats can regain power, and neocons like Goldberg can retain their role as gatekeeper on the Right.
Fox News Considers Hiring Brother of Former Influential Obama Admin Official as CEO
Doubling down on their betrayal.
As Fox News’ television ratings continue to tank after betraying President Donald Trump and enforcing election fraud, they are looking at doubling down on their recipe for failure.
Fox News is reportedly considering the appointment of David Rhodes as their new CEO. David is the brother of Ben Rhodes, a former influential member of the Obama administration who regularly propagandizes against President Donald Trump and his supporters on social media.
Rhode is rumored to be a replacement option for Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott, who has presided over the network’s precipitous decline in recent months. The job of Fox News President Jay Wallace is also reportedly in danger as the network sinks far below its competitors in the ratings’ column.
Rhodes was formerly the president of CBS until 2019 where he was the youngest network news president in American history. He started working for News UK, the British division of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, last year. It is speculated that Rhodes could be hired to bring in left-leaning and younger viewers, completing the network’s complete betrayal of their loyal conservative viewership.
It is also being reported that Murdoch, now 90 years of age, has been reasserting himself in the administration of Fox News. His son, Lachlan, was named heir apparent to Rupert but is badly mismanaging the former juggernaut that had previously dominated the American TV news market for nearly two decades.
According to Meaww, an unnamed Fox News insider said: “Rupert re-taking the reins is a sign of the gross mismanagement to date.”
Big League Politics has reported on the conservative exodus from Fox News after they led the election night chicanery that ultimately robbed Trump of the presidency:
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News brass hates President Trump and his MAGA movement so much that they are killing the golden goose due to their rage. The conservative swamp runs deeper than most could have imagined before Trump’s rise.
