Open Warfare Declared in DC as Deep State ‘Goes Nuclear’ — Trump ‘Will Die in Jail’

Washington, D.C. – The United States is entering an extreme and unprecedented political crisis in the form of a soft coup by the deep state. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have publicly called out these elements of the “intelligence-industrial complex” that are actively working to undermine, discredit and forcibly remove President Trump.

Giving a clear admission of a soft coup in progress, John Schindler, a former professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, who spent nearly a decade with the super-secret National Security Agency as an intelligence analyst and counterintelligence officer — and who still maintains deep connections to the intelligence community — readily admitted that senior elements of the intelligence community (IC) are engaging in treason against Trump.

Screen cap, in case it gets deleted.

Speaking to this soft coup and smashing the left/right paradigm, on Tuesday, former Cleveland Democratic congressman Dennis Kucinich boldly stated that, “There’s something wrong going on here in the intelligence community,” in calling out the real reason behind the forced resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Kucinich urged Trump to take control, and locate where the leakers are so he and the American people will know the truth. Kucinich said members of the intelligence community want to reignite a Cold War between the United States and Russia so the military, industrial and intelligence “axis” can “cash in.”

While on the opposite side of the aisle, California Congressman Devin Nunes (R), chairman of the House Committee on Intelligence, proclaimed that the nine intelligence officials who leaked the contents of Flynn’s phone call should be locked up for leaking classified intelligence.

“That’s nine leakers that all belong in jail,” he said. “Those nine people broke the law, clearly, by leaking classified information to anybody.”

This all comes in the wake of the nation’s top security official, National Security Advisor Flynn, being forced to resign after leaks from the IC revealed that he gave “incomplete information” to Vice President Mike Pence and others about the conversations he had with the Russian ambassador prior to Trump taking office.

Flynn has since publicly stated that he “crossed no lines” during an interview with The Daily Caller. Obviously, an experienced intelligence official like Flynn was completely aware of the signals intelligence on Russian diplomats, thus making it extremely unlikely that he would say anything that could be construed as violating the law.

Just remember, it’s not what Flynn said, it’s who he talked to – the Russians – as it is standard operating procedure for incoming officials to talk to diplomats from other countries. The neoliberal and neocon forces are determined to push a new Cold War with Russia, and will not allow for Trump’s intended rapprochement.

When intelligence officials are using their position to leak details to the press in an effort to control the public narrative in hopes of delegitimizing a sitting president, make no mistake that the politicians are no longer in control of the United States – the intelligence apparatus is in control.

Think about the implications of what is taking place; any person running for public office can essentially be manipulated by the intelligence that the NSA has collected on them. The information can then be anonymously leaked to destroy anyone the intel apparatus chooses, thus giving them total control.

The depth of this political crisis cannot be overstated, as the deep state war on Trump could spiral out of control with grave consequences, including the risk of an actual Civil War.

As noted by respected geopolitical analyst The Saker:

At the risk of sounding over the top, I will say that what is happening now is putting the very existence of the United States in danger almost regardless of what Trump will personally do. Whatever we may think of Trump as a person and about his potential as a President, what is certain is that millions of American patriots have voted for him to “clear the swamp”, give the boot to the Washington-based plutocracy and restore what they see as fundamental American values.


If the Neocons now manage to stage a coup d’etat against Trump, I predict that these millions of American will turn to violence to protect what they see as their way of life, their values and their country. In spite of the image which Hollywood likes to give of them, most Americans are peaceful and non-violent people, but if they are pushed too far they will not hesitate and grab their guns to defend themselves, especially if they lose all hopes in their democracy. And I am not talking only about gun-toting hillbillies here, I am talking about the local, state and county authorities, who often care much more about what their local constituents think and say than what they are up to in DC. If a coup is staged against Trump and some wannabe President à la Hillary or McCain gives the order to the National Guard or even the US Army to put down a local insurrection, we could see what we saw in Russia in 1991: a categorical refusal of the security services to shoot at their own people.

This is a very prescient warning given the volatile political atmosphere in the United States. It should be noted that the confluence of deep state forces in this soft coup against Trump includes Clinton political operatives of the Brock/Podesta/Soros ilk, neocons represented by McCain/Graham, and intelligence operatives in the security apparatus.

Essentially, the losers of the election refuse to submit and have determined that they will wage total war on Trump in an effort to force regime change – elections be damned.

In fact, the dynamics at play are much larger in scope and volume than what most people understand, as they are part of a full spectrum war, utilizing tactics from various global Color Revolutions, to force regime change in the United States. The neocons and neoliberals have virtual control of the Congress, the media, courts, and parts of the intelligence apparatus.

From the time of Bill Clinton until now, these elements have deeply penetrated the Pentagon, Foggy Bottom, and the three letter agencies. Even the Fed is largely aligned with these globalist forces.

So, how can President Trump survive this soft coup?

Trump has only one chance for his political survival.

He must undertake a ruthless, but legal, anti-corruption campaign against the deep state forces aligned against his presidency ala Putin’s anti-corruption campaign in Russia. Make no mistake that Trump, and those that have declared war upon him, are engaged in a fight to the death.

When Putin came to power he inherited a similar situation in the Kremlin, which was every bit as corrupt and traitor-infested as the White House in which Trump now finds himself.

The manner in which this operation would be conducted would be a methodical FBI crackdown on the forces fomenting the soft coup by investigating the plotters on charges of corruption, abuse of power, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and all the other types of behavior which have gone on forever in Congress, the intelligence community and the media.

Trump could start by instructing FBI Director James Comey to tenaciousiosly investigate criminal activity of those elements involved in the plot. Essentially, he would deal with the coup plotters in the same manner as Putin handled the oligarchs in Russia or how the U.S. took down Al Capone – tax evasion charges, etc.

With the removal of Flynn, Trump is now surrounded by forces that are largely hostile to his stated goal of peace with Russia. The major difference between what Putin faced and what Trump now faces is that the forces aligned against Putin never saw him coming.

Trump’s only choices for political survival are to strike immediately and strike hard, or to cave to the neolibcon line on Russia. Judging by his tweet regarding Crimea this morning, it seems that Trump may be capitulating to the forces intent on his destruction in an effort to save his presidency from total ruin.

To survive the soft coup attempt, without bending to the neolibcon will, Trump must use the FBI to clean house and deliver a steady stream of indictments for corruption, conspiracy to [fill the blank], abuse of authority, obstruction of justice and dereliction of duty, etc. Since such crimes are widespread in the current circles of power, they are also easy to prove and cracking down on corruption would get Trump a standing ovation from the American people.

This is the only way Trump will survive the ongoing coup attempt by the various deep state operatives, working in concert with Clintonian media proxies, is to undertake a widespread anti-corruption campaign aimed at those attempting to overthrow the current U.S. government.

While one may not support Trump’s politics or agenda, make no mistake that those involved in this soft coup are doing nothing less than engaging in treason against the United States.

  • This seems fake. There’s no one in the control system that’s not a cog in the corruption machine. To make the people think that the government is fighting itself will pacify citizens that we may not need to rise up and fix it ourselves.

        • TeslaFan

          No. The Deep State is shorthand for the nexus of secretive intelligence agencies whose leaders and policies are not much affected by changes in the White House or the Congress. While definitions vary, the Deep State includes the CIA, NSA, Defense Intelligence Agency, and components of the State Department, Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security, and all branches of the armed forces; plus the defense industry, the oil industry, and Wall Street in general. This is where the real power resides in America. Politicians come and go. The Deep State doesn’t.

  • Trumpty Dumpty and his associates are already a fascist takeover of the US government. Of course, much of the fascism was already in play before they got there. It would make my day if they took him, that peice of crap vice president, Steve Bannon especially, all his cabinet picks, and most of Congress and hanged them all right in front of the Capital Building in DC. And, while they are at it, they could go scoop up Obama, Bush Jr., Dick Cheney, and a host of others predating Trump and do the same thing with them. They are all destroying our government… beginning with Reagan… destroying our environment, destroying our economy, and pretty much anything you can think of for the sake of making larger profits for the 1%. Free speech, dissent, real information in the news from independent sources, and a long list of rights and freedoms are (have been) going down the tubes and what we have at the top is a fascist government. The ignorant American public is just not doing much at all to stop it… not nearly enough, anyway. They can pull all these things off and get away with it, but there is one thing that will take them out no matter what… Methane. Frozen methane from the Arctic and CO2 from the permafrost will put an end to them and the whole world and it will be doing it pretty soon.

WHAT REALLY NEEDS TO HAPPEN IS TRANSPARENT MONEY…… 250 Russian militiamen loyal to the Donetsk People’s Republic, which had seized the city from the Ukrainian government. The battle focused on a police station held by the separatists in which both armed militants and unarmed civilians had gathered to demand reunion with Russia. The conflict ended cruelly, as the station was burned to the ground with scores of women and children inside. Those fleeing the inferno were machine-gunned.

      The massacre was the work of the Dnipro Battalion, a new force of mostly foreign mercenaries drawn from Zionist-backed terrorists around the world and financed by Ihor Valeriyovych Kolomoyskyi, a Jewish billionaire and banker. http://positivemoney.org/

      What We Need to Do
      We’ve spent the last six years researching the problems caused by the current debt-based monetary system and how to fix them. This is what we think needs to change to fix our broken money system:
      1. Take the power to create money away from the banks, and return it to a democratic transparent and accountable process

      2. Create money free of debt

      3. Put new money into the real economy rather than financial markets and property bubbles

    Don’t ask me why but I have a real gut feeling that to save America and the world, Trump needs to quickly, as soon as possible, get together with Putin and do everything he can to join forces with Russia, and together start to fight this entity that wants to take over the world. The NWO seems to be very upset about the possibility of Trump getting cozy with Putin. There’s something strange about the total push by the ‘Shadow govt’ in America that seems bent on selling the fact of Putin and Trump becoming ‘comrades in arms’ is the worst thing that could possibly happen. This is why I feel that it’s the BEST thing that could happen and it has to be real fast and done legally on both sides. Then start to take apart the NWO Globalists and clean up this planet. One thing is to go higher than seems possible and cut the head off of the snake that wants to take over the world. And Trump has to stop looking at ‘whistle-blowers’ as criminals and start seeing them as the heroes that they are. If you really look at the scene, Russia is pretty ‘clean’ compared to most countries in regards to ‘swamp creatures’! The alliance would be the beginning of strength that is rare in this world and with super intelligence it would only get stronger. The main thing to remember is that on all sides the population is to be given more control over their lives and be the reason for all things that happen for the betterment of the life on earth!! It must start now!!!! Put the trash in the cans and clean the swamps once and for all! Please don’t let the monsters like Soros and the Clintons and all the people like them get anymore power. Take down Obama and his ‘army’ of traitors as fast as possible! And all the ones like them through-out the globe!! Last chance to save the planet. MAKE THE WORLD GREAT AGAIN!!!

    It appears the Authoritarians are coming out of the closet. Failing to manipulate or control Trump they are staging their own coup.This only shows Obama to have been the worst sucker in Presidential history. He actually believed the B.S. and outright lies the Federal government was dishing out, First on the war on drugs , now on re-escalating the cold war.After using the war on drugs to subjugate the U.S. these miss-guided and ill-fated tyrants are attempting to manipulate the world. If they can not possess they will destroy and only create more war. War solely for greedy profit.Even war against their own people. They have made the same mistakes all tyrant oppressors have always made throughout history. As they begin to use fear to control and intimidate the U.S.people (their subjects) their end will hasten..’Fortunately’, and in spite of their name, these idiots lack the sufficient intelligence to pull it off. We can expect their attempts to manipulate U.S.S.R. and China to backfire. If they can continue to create war they assume they will remain in power.America stands for war to gain peace. These evil villains want war for power and profit.Peace will defeat them.

  • Publius40

    Trump might consider dealing with these traitors much was the fate of other of those in the intelligence community who grew so powerful and challenged for control, , , such as
    Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria.

    Beria was feared as he was the man in control of the head of State Security and the Russian secret police and the NKVD. After all, this was the man who created the gulags, oversaw the imprisonment or deaths of millions of people, and maintained secret files on everyone.

    But, Beria’s mistake was in challenging Khrushchev’s rise to power. Khrushchev set him up on charges of treason and terrorism, and he was executed with a shot to the forehead as he begged and cried for his life.

    It would not surprise me if Trump who has access to some extremely qualified black ops groups might not choose to clear the intelligence pool of corruptive leadership quickly and decisively. Accidents and health failures happen all the time, you know.

I was of the opinion way back then, before I even knew what libertarianism was and still considered myself a conservative, that if they’d put Kucinich up against Bush instead of Kerry, the Dems would have taken down the Repubs right then and there. The guy just makes too much sense though. He made some sensible comment about reforming immigration policy in one of the debates and that was the last anyone ever heard of him. I guess he’s still got a good head on his shoulders. Good for him.

    Has no one stopped to think about whether any of this is actually true? Or are people too ready to spout their own opinions? It all seems like chaos to me and this is feeding into more and more chaos. Fake news, alternative facts…. None of us really knows the truth and maybe that is the point, that we’re not meant to. Even Trump’s WH attacks the press for distortion and lies. So, unless you know that the facts arranged before you are the cast-iron truth…keep quiet.

    Another major difference is that Putin, unlike Trump, was an ex-intelligence officer, so he had at least some friends and contacts inside the FSB. Watch your back, Donald! This is a coup …

    The Rus people came originally from Kiev and Crimea, and these territories were given away during the Soviet era by Breshnev. Since the borders of the USSR were declared void by Gorbachev, that would mean that Ukraine in its entirety should cease to exist ans all territories go back to the Rus. Russia is not expecting more than a fraction of those territories returned, as Russia has no need of all those US-backed Ukranian Nazis that escaped punishment after WW2, but Crimea and other parts inhabited by a majority of ethnic Rus should go back to Russia in interests of its own national security. The US is playing with fire, as usual, but this time for sure, the Americans need to act in their own national interests and back off.

    Both parties are corrupt. Hillary, Trump, Sanders, Obama, Bush, are all puppets. The alphabet agencies need to lose funding and be shutdown. States and counties need to be given the power to govern themselves so that the needs of the people can be satisfied regardless of politics. Let California govern themselves as a sovereign state. The same goes to the other States. Localization will bring more accountability to the local and state governments. Let the federal government go back to maintaining the military, bases, forts, and post office.

    The author is ignoring the fact that the very, very real possibility exists that Trump illegally colluded with the Russians which I and every educated person on the planet believes he did. So, we say kudos to the “deep state” as they are the true Americans looking out for American interests. The enemy of our enemy is our friend – which is why all Trump apologists (his uneducated base) loved the Russian inspired Wikileaks and are now so eager to kiss Putin’s ass just like Trump and it’s also why all of us (his educated detractors) who see Trump for exactly who he is are cheering on the intelligence community to bring down Trump like the treasonous egomaniacal blowhard he is.

  • Obi-jonKenobi

    It’s hard to know what’s really happening at this most confusing time in our history where the post-factual era is under way with a president who readily uses “alternate facts” and lives in a parallel universe of his own creation. And that is one of the YOOOGE problems with the above reasoning: Trump is not a person that is challenging the oligarchy or “draining the swamp”, he’s one of the swamp monsters. So calling for us to rally around him is futile, there is only a small, hard-core in this country that will rally to Trump. It’s also possible that the IC-led attempt to take Trump down is done mostly based on the danger that Trump presents to this country through his rabid dishonesty, his complete lack of ethics, and unstable personality . . not on some neoliberal/neocon plot to sabotage detente with Russia.

    And nowhere is the current clouds of confusion about facts and reality heavier than around the Russia issue. The good news/bad news is that the internet has opened up massive numbers of sources so if you’re diligent, you can find the truth (hint: it’s not in the corporate MSM OR the right-wing echo chamber). You’re on your own to separate fact from fiction and even old, reliable sources need to be questioned.

    So, all of us need to take the time to dig into this before believing anyone about anything now. Assume what you read is wrong until proven otherwise and, for God’s sake, quit falling for and posting stuff you either aren’t sure about or secretly know is flakey. Truth is under attack from powerful forces and it’s more important than ever now that we discern clearly. Every moment, every breath, you need to choose the truth, discern who is lying, who is working for the greater good, and how you are going to contribute – or not – by your actions.

    It’s possible. Peace out.
