The best part about dad jokes is that little kids just don't get 'em. It'll be years before they groan and perform eyerollnados.

Every time you see the phrase "Deep State" alarm bells should go off. This is the latest narrative of the oligarchy, that's being used with one purpose: to discredit the last fact-professions that are respected nationwide, across the red-blue divide.

Every other fact-profession has been systematically attacked by Fox & Pals for 20 years. Can you name for me one profession of high knowledge and skill that’s not under attack by Fox/Trump &cohorts? Teachers, medical doctors, journalists, civil servants, law professionals, economists, skilled labor, professors… oh, yes and science. Thirty years ago, 40% of US scientists called themselves Republican, now it is 4% and plummeting. They are voting with their feet, the smartest, wisest, most logical and by far the most competitive humans our species ever produced.

And now? The US military and intelligence officer corps! The final group of fact-centered professionals who stand in the way of the putsch for feudalism. And they are tough, as Trump is discovering! So they must be discredited.

Fortunately for the oligarchs, they have an ally -- leftist stupidity. The reflex to hate on military and intel types, because they have crewcuts and good posture and some "conservative" habits and rural hobbies. Just look at how the left has screamed over a tiny boost in military spending. A boost that only gives Trump cover to go into an Erdogan style purge of the Officer Corps

If liberals were smart, they'd be recruiting 3000 retired colonels to run in every red county and state assembly district. Men and women who might not be all aboard every single PC litmus test, but who believe in science and transparency and climate change and strong women and zero racism and not sucking up to Russia. Look at how just one retired colonel, in my own district, but the scare of a lifetime into that piece of work, Darrell Issa!

There is your road map for winning... not just resistance but victory - in this phase 8 of the American Civil War.

But no. Now LIBERALS are buying into the "deep state" trojan horse. And their reflex, spurning allies who could help us rescue the nation, could be the death of us.

Yes, this is not your daddy's conservatism. We could be shoving this in the face of red americans and winning converts. Instead, too many are buying into "deep state" and helping pour hate upon the last fact-based professions with the power to help us.

I'm unsurprised by this, but I wanted to take a moment to highlight something here.

[A] new internal Department of Homeland Security document that reached this key judgment:

"We assess that most foreign-born, US-based violent extremists likely radicalized several years after their entry to the United States, limiting the ability of screening and vetting officials to prevent their entry because of national security concerns."

In other words, probably after several years of severe racism, bigotry, mistreatment, and so on.
