The “Deep State”

When President Kennedy was assassinated, there were many conspiracy theories concerning the number of people who were involved in his assassination. When the United States went to the moon, there were conspiracies suggesting that it was all staged in a Hollywood back studio. In the world today, especially in our nation’s capital, conspiracy theories abound. One of the strongest theories floating around today is President Trump’s claim that Barack Obama had Trump Tower wire-tapped during the campaign. So far, President Trump has provided no proof that this illegal act actually happened. If it were true, the ex-president would be guilty of a felony. A new term has surfaced and a new conspiracy theory has given birth. The term “the deep state” has become shorthand for shadowy forces in the government that are blamed every time a negative news story is leaked about President Trump. Some conservatives believe that, within the federal civil service, a cabal of Obama administration holdovers, liberal bureaucrats and intelligence officials is working to undermine the president. Hopefully, after serious probing has been done and facts have been applied to the fiction, this matter will be cleared up and guilty parties will pay the consequences.
