What we have observed from the Deep State presses in recent years is that what they say the patriots are guilty of doing is what they themselves are at that moment actually doing.
For instance, while Deep State presses spoke ad nauseam of Trump's Russian collusion, of which there still is no evidence, Hillary Clinton was knee-deep in Uranium One, the collusion deal that transferred more than 20% of the U.S. uranium supply to the Russians.
Right now the Deep State presses are projecting on the patriots the desire for a civil war while they themselves are planning one.
The myriad of network voices, like a choir, villainized Donald Trump nonstop for years -- then his followers -- they were labeled "deplorables." As Trump supporters became increasingly popular, even becoming the majority of Americans, the Deep State wanted them viewed as insurrectionists. Even parents who objected to their local school boards about their children being subjected to critical race theory propaganda in the classroom were treated by the FBI as domestic terrorists. Those defending the First or Second Amendments were and are classed the same, even those defending the Constitution itself. Journalists, giving the other side to the Deep State propaganda, are accused of spreading disinformation and censored -- the very thing the Deep State does.
Seemingly, they wish to goad Trump supporters into confrontation, even violence, so that their "dark" media could chorus, "See, we told you, they are domestic terrorists." Meanwhile, their activists, principally Antifa and BLM, used the summer of 2020 to burn buildings and police cars, and to loot in many cities. Their occupation of city blocks in Seattle and Portland was praised by the Left. They called this looting, burning and raping the "Summer of Love." Law enforcement, who ultimately flushed them out, they sought to defund into nonexistence.
Labeling opponents "domestic terrorists" was a major purpose of the January 6 Commission. We know now that FBI agents and Capitol Police directed, even escorted, Trump rally attendees to and into the House Chambers where Antifa broke the windows and assisted with the needed violence. John Sullivan, an Antifa member, filmed the violence of his comrades, making it available to the networks that played it relentlessly as Trump-inspired. The presence of Antifa, BLM and other far-Left, even terrorist-prone, organizations played key roles in what now appears to have been a trap set for Trump followers.
Joe Biden has to know his 87,000 additional new IRS agents, now armed, will irritate the patriots. That number exceeds the border patrol which Biden wishes to eliminate. Who will they monitor? Not likely the rich who have exemptions or the poor who pay little or no income tax. The target has to be the middle class, the vast majority of these being Trump supporters.
Irritating the patriots is what the FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago, too, is about. Let me insert an important truth. The President alone, whoever this may be, has the sole right to declassify classified information. Who has authority over his? No one! Once declassified, it has no protective covering, and he may take it home and even read it aloud to anyone who will listen as he does.
Neither the Department of Justice nor the National Archives has a say in the matter. Kash Patel, deputy of National Intelligence at the time, witnessed that all the documents Trump had at Mar-A-Lago he had formerly declassified -- End of the issue! (X22 Report, Ep. 2848b, August 12, 2022, 29:40). Nothing justifies a warrant or raid on the Trump home.
Actually, the FBI knew of the documents he had and on June 3, 2022, two months before the raid, examined them at Mar-A-Lago and asked Trump to place a second lock on the door protecting them. He complied. It was this lock that was broken in the raid and these documents that were taken by the FBI (X22 Report Ep.2848b, Aug. 12, 2022, 23:22).
Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton all spied on Trump at Trump Tower; and Trump, after his inauguration, did not raid their homes with an army of FBI agents. Moreover, Hillary Clinton bleach-washed 33,000 emails, many classified, after the House of Representatives ordered they be preserved, and nothing was done to her. President Obama trucked out 30 million pages of his administration's records to Chicago, requesting them five years after leaving office, and no one asked why (X22 Report, Ep. 2847b, Aug. 10, 2022, 31:00). None of these facts appear concerning to the Deep State presses protecting these people.
Why Trump? The Deep State wants his followers to get angry enough to take to the streets -- the same modus operandi as January 6. If they do not, Antifa, dressed in Trump MAGA attire, will, and the "dark" media will film and cover it, just as on January 6. One Deep State organization, The Patriot Front, of white supremacists, has trained for such an appearance for months and will come out of the shadows as the Trump opposition if the Deep State cannot get opposition from real patriots. The Deep State expects to have their civil war -- even if they have to create it.
How does a civil war benefit the Deep State? It is the ultimate coverup. It erases everything the Deep State has done to America. Battles and war talk would fill the front of every newspaper and network replacing compelling proof of domestic election fraud and foreign intervention in the 2020 presidential election, the January 6 coverup of November 3, the Hunter Biden laptop revealing how compromised Joe Biden is with China, the FBI raid on President Trump's Mar-A-Lago home, even the enormity of vaccine injuries from the covid jab, and dozens more. They all go away to a more compelling story.
Most importantly, Deep State players will remain in power indefinitely and never go to prison for insurrection or treason.
Will it work? Probably not, as digital soldiers are busy giving the censored side and exposing the lies of the Deep State. Still, civil war is what the Deep State really wants. The rest of us just want to get back to the Constitution and liberty.
