Assange Calls Out 'Intel Community'


That comment by Assange says it all - you don't have to be an apologist for Trump to acknowledge what is really going on here.  The deep state lost the election - Hillary was their chosen candidate and now they are working hard to 'Putinize' Trump because he was not eager to push war with Russia.

In a real democracy if you lose you deal with it and rebuild for the next election.  In this case the deep state is working to enact a coup d'état.

The CIA runs this country now - they create the US foreign policy and now they have shown that they intend to run domestic policy as well.  That is a serious problem - no matter who the president is.

In 1968 presidential candidate Richard Nixon told the South Vietnamese to prolong negotiations with North Vietnam. He would get them a better deal when he became president. In  1980 Ronald Reagan told the Iranians to hold the American hostages until he became president, which they did. Neither one was prosecuted. 

Sadly many on the 'left' are eager to see Trump gone no matter how it is done.  They are missing the clear danger of this historic moment.  Far too many people follow blindly what ever the Democrats, and their front groups, tell them to think.....

We need more independent thinkers - badly.
