The election of Donald Trump was without a doubt the strangest and most controversial presidential campaign in the history of the United States. Trump and Clinton are, without a doubt, two of the most polarizing candidates ever to seek the US presidency. A significant portion of the electorate didn’t vote for Trump, they voted against Clinton. Despite media claims to the contrary, Trump won legitimately and significantly over Clinton.
The United States is made up of 3,141 counties (Leahy, 2016). Of these counties, Trump won 3,084 of them and Clinton only 57 (Leahy, 2016). If you look only at the 62 counties in New York State, Trump won 46 and Clinton only 16 (Leahy, 2016). These statistics clearly illustrate the stark reality of why the United States utilizes the Electoral College instead of the popular vote when electing the president. The electoral college prevents states with the largest populations from determining the results of every election.
Despite the legitimacy of Trumps election, his presidency has faced unrelenting and coordinated opposition from both republicans, democrats and the media. A recent study by the Media Research Centre shows that over 90% of the media coverage of Trump is negative (Harper, 2018). This negative coverage of Trump is 3 times greater than that of Obama (Dedard,
2017). This truly is unprecedented! The big question would be “why is Trump being targeted so aggressively”? Trump is the first candidate to become president with no prior political experience. Trump came from the private sector with no political experience. He wasn’t anointed by the political elites, he didn’t kiss the ring of any of the party elites, he did it on his own in a very unorthodox but highly successful manner. He is unscripted and unfiltered, often saying exactly what’s on his mind. The message that got him elected into the Whitehouse reflected the frustration so many Americans faced day to day in their lives. He says exactly what he thinks and doesn’t care what people think of him. Trump is the first non-politician to become president and he did it by not playing by the established rules. Those in power don’t like the fact that Trump doesn’t play by their rules. Consequently, he represents a threat to the them, their power and the status quo. The elites are working together to get rid of Trump, minimize his power and to maintain the status quo. Given these facts, Americans should be asking themselves some fundamental questions!
What if…there really is a deep state and a shadow government? Prior to the Clinton Email scandal and the Russian collusion investigation, the majority of Americans might have scoffed at the idea of a shadow government and a deep state. Only conspiracy theorist wearing tin foil hats would dare have thrown those terms around publicly. However, given the recent Department of Justice Inspector Generals (DoJIG) findings concerning the Clinton Email investigation, it increasingly looks as though the existence of a deep state and shadow government may not be so crazy after all. Most people have heard the terms “deep state” and “shadow government” but don’t understand exactly what they are. The shadow government is often
considered to be the consolidation of all the intelligence organizations of the United States Government. Collectively, they use the unconstitutional power of Government to secretly run the legitimately elected government. Kevin Shipp, a former CIA analyst and whistle-blower, claims that the deep state and shadow government are real and do in fact exist. The shadow government consists of the CIA, NSA, FBI, the main stream media and the Council on Foreign Relations.
The shadow government works in conjunction with the deep state which is the military industrial complex, military industrial congressional complex, defence contractors, intelligence contractors, the International Monetary Exchange, the World Bank, Wall Street, foreign lobbyists and the Treasury. They augment the power of the deep state existing in the secrecy it created. Their goal is to perpetuate the ongoing system of unjust enrichment for its members and to ensure the power and control of the shadow government.
The concept of a shadow government and deep state seems to be difficult for many Americans to comprehend. However, given all the recent disclosures concerning Trump, the Clintons, the Russian investigation and the Email scandal there certainly is a case supporting their existence.
