When did the Deep State become a Double Government?

Musings on the abstract National Security and Double Government, by Michael J. Glennon
It’s refreshing when someone as experienced and respected as Texas Congressman Ron Paul talks openly about the Deep State and Shadow Government and its ill effects on our “Democracy” in America.
But what is it really? A secret sect trying to rule the world from the shadows? A nebulas cabal of secret underpinnings that traps us all in the pseudo servitude to a conspiracy theorist imaginings? No, it’s just business as usual for the US Government, standard operating procedure in the modern world.
Starting with the premise that in 2008 the electorate in America overwhelmingly voted for “hope and change”. Giving the new president a mandate to find a new direction of American policy both at home and abroad. Only to see a complete absence of change on the Bush policies that Obama railed so vehemently against during the election. Doubling down drone attacks and accusing whistle blowers of treason more than all previous administrations combined.
Glennon gives us a very detailed and enlightening history of the origins of the Deep State. It’s history since Truman signed into law National Security Act of 1947, creating the National Security Council and the Central Intelligence Agency, following through to modem times and modern problems.
The premise is solid and illuminates the root of the problem in our current political systems in America. Illuminating the mechanisms that gives us the out of control Executive Branch we see today. Glennon even postulates that there is no way out of this Deep State system that has taking root and is choking our Democracy.
That may be true, but if I am elected I will make reconciliation of this a top priority of mine. After all if the Judiciary keeps allowing the Deep State to grow unabated. It’s up to Congress to bring back the balance of power to the people that elected them.
