The Deep State, Intelligence Agencies, Their History, And Anti-Trump Activities
To understand the intelligence services we need to first understand their history. To give a detailed history I would need to write a book, but I will instead try to condense this, go briefly into their history, how we got to the point we are now, and what is going on at the current time with the whistle-blowers.
Intel Services From Washington To FDR
We have seen some sort of intelligence community in place since the revolutionary war. Washington used secret codes and patriots to spy on the British and give him information about troop movement and strength, after the war, there was no need so it was disbanded.
During the civil war, it was used to gather
Wilson expanded his idea, there was no intelligence type of service in power, Mexico had just had a coup, where the government was overthrown, yet there was no means to collect any current information, so looked to the newspapers and his ambassadors.
The problem was he was getting conflicting reports from the various newspapers, so he went to William Bayard Hale, a newspaperman who worked for the progressive journal World’s Work, Wilson had him sent to Mexico and Central America, he would gather the intelligence and write stories about what was going on with the coup and what Victoriano Huerta, the leader’s intent was.
The news Wilson got back was horrifying, the US ambassador was working with the coup leaders that overthrew the Mexican government, Wilson recalled the ambassador, then put someone else in place that was able to let his intent know, he wanted free elections. Victoriano Huerta was eventually overthrown, Wilson then turned to Signals intelligence (SIGINT) to track what was going on in Europe, tapping communications from European powers.
This was the beginning of what later became reformed in the cold war as the NSA. He found out through this intelligence that Germany was trying to aid Victoriano Huerta who was exiled in Spain to return to Mexico so he could set up another revolution, thus drawing America into that conflict and keep them out of Europe, this was stopped before it happened.
During this same time another agency was started, the FBI, this was created to first keep an eye on anarchist, the very group of people that set off WW1. In 1896 National Bureau of Criminal Identification was founded by the federal government to keep track of criminals around the nation, was expanded after the assassination of President William McKinley by an anarchist, the US was worried that they were gaining too much power in our nation.
The National Bureau of Criminal Identification was changed to the Bureau of Investigation (BOI) on July 26, 1908, they, in turn, were expanded to include investigations into spying, federal criminal prosecution when criminals crossed state lines with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, they were separated from the Department of Justice and became an agency to themselves with J. Edger Hoover at its head.
Yet it was the second world war, a maverick named General William “Wild Bill” Donovan, he was unconventional in his actions, but he produced amazing results, the set in motion what we have today. He was put in charge of the newly created Office of Strategic Services (OSS). The Department of State and the armed services arranged a Presidential decree that effectively banned most of OSS and several other agencies from acquiring and decoding the war’s most important intelligence intercepts. General MacArthur and Admiral Nimitz kept OSS from contributing to the main American campaigns against Imperial Japan and the FBI, G-2 and Navy intelligence stood together to protect their monopoly on domestic counterintelligence work. This was corrected after the war with the foundation of the CIA.
One thing we have to remember, and is it important with this story, the first Intelligence Agency, the Office of the Coordinator of Information (COI) was created to give the administrative branch a better idea of what was going on in the world. With WW2 around the corner, FDR knew the was going to happen, also knew the US population was not keen on the idea, so he set about doing two things, communication and receiving intelligence.
FDR was famous for his fireside chats, the American people would sit and listen to what he had to say, but this was not just for communication, he gave the people an idea of what was going on around the world, much of this was gleaned from the COI found, who were tasked with interviewing refugees fleeing Europe so they could have a better idea of what was going on. Franklin used the talks to slowly turn America into a more receptive mood towards a conflict in Europe, it was the attack on Pearl Harbor that galvanized an already receptive nation.
What I showed was the intent of the security services, they were put in place to give the president Intel so he would be better prepared for dealing with hot spots and conflicts around the world, yet it is no longer this way. The Intelligence Community has grown until they think they are a power to themselves, thus doing away with the intent of the founders of the Constitution, the will of the people is supposed to set up rule over us, yet we have whole organizations that are not elected, think they are a power to themselves, and are willing and able to try to influence and as we see now, work to undo the will of the people and try to rid themselves of a president they see as uncooperative with them.
The Intel Agencies Today And The Whistle-Blowers
The unforgivable sin was Trump saying he did not trust the intelligence apparatus; they had been politicized under Obama. The left screamed about this, but now we are finding out that the FBI worked passing FISA Warrants on false information, the CIA worked through Brennan to pick up dirt on Trump overseas, called in Germany’s intel agencies, England and others to dig for dirt on Trump, the same thing the left is now trying to impeach Trump for, Trump is looking for a crime where Bidden openly admitted that he pressured a stop of investigation or would withhold funds, Trump has done nothing but ask that this be looked into.
One must ask, if it is unforgivable for Trump to look into an admitted crime of a political opponent, then why was it OK for the Obama administration to do this with Trump? Further, why was it OK for Bidden to force the firing of a prosecutor that was investigating his son with the threat of withholding aid, yet Trump never made such a threat. What is impressive (in a bad way), the left demands that Bidden be left alone, Trump needs to be impeached over this, this is political
But more so, how is it that now we have these whistle-blowers all coming out of the shadows. One could ask, was this
To fight off this whistle-blower Trump did something unprecedented and could end up having long-lasting effects on foreign relations, he released the transcripts of the call to the Ukrainian leader, but that meant little to the left, they now are claiming this must have been doctored. Further, we now hear a second witness is coming forward, but the transcripts are already released, so what is the cause?
What is worse, the whistle-blower has been shown to be acting in a totally political way, this is not acceptable in the slightest.
As was reported in the Washington Examiner:
Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday’s impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election.
“The IG said [the whistle-blower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates,” said one person with knowledge of what was said.
“The IG said the whistle-blower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates,” said another person with knowledge of what was said.
What [Atkinson] said was that the whistle-blower self-disclosed that he was a registered Democrat and that he had a prior working relationship with a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate,” said a third person with knowledge of what was said.
All three sources said Atkinson did not identify the Democratic candidate with whom the whistleblower had a connection. It is unclear what the working or professional relationship between the two was.
The CIA, NSA, and the rest of the Intelligence agencies were set up to work with the president, Obama, Clapper, Brennan, and Loretta Lynch politicized the whole intelligence community, we have seen a continuance of this with high placed leaks, refusal of some members to put in effect Trump’s policies and outright hostilities from these agencies towards Trump and his administration.
We heard condemnation of Trump’s lack of trust, but now that it has been vindicated the left now says that it is almost a sin to question these keepers of our intelligence, I must ask, who then watches the watchers, it is obvious Congress doesn’t want to do its job.
At this point I see little choice but having a top to bottom cleaning of all agencies, go case by case, find someone to do this that is apolitical, find any political bias, don’t care if it is towards the right or the left, clean them out, we need agencies that act outside of politics, otherwise they become what they are now, corrupt overpowering institutions with overwhelming political bias.
It seems Trump is doing this, but as with all things, these institutions have enjoyed unfettered power, when you yank that power away they are going to react. We see this now with whistle-blowers, this will only get much, much worse, expect these people to come out with increasing frequency as the walls close in on these people and the 2020 election is coming up on us.
