My Conversation With a Deep State Whistleblower

On Monday, Nancy Pelosi declared that “Donald Trump is not going to be President of the United States.”

“Take it to the bank, I guarantee it,” she growled.

Was this just more inane rambling from a partisan Democrat?

Or does Pelosi know something we don’t?

Well, when you dig into her connections to the Deep State, you have to wonder what she has planned…

Corrupted From Birth

The media loves to portray Democratic Congresswoman Pelosi as a softhearted grandmother from California.

The former Speaker of the House is positioned as a kindly woman of the people… a champion of the poor and downtrodden.

But in truth, she’s a dyed-in-the-wool Deep Stater.

Her father, Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., was a U.S. Congressman from Maryland who served on the immensely powerful Appropriations Committee, the one that controls the government’s purse strings.

Then he became Mayor of Baltimore, where he ran a well-oiled political machine with close links to the mafia and came to be known as “Big Tommy.”

Remember the young guy in Goodfellas? That’s Pelosi’s early life learning at the feet of Big Tommy.

And she used that same ruthlessness and corrupt connections from her father’s political machine to become the highest-ranking female politician in U.S. history.

In the words of David Firestone of the New York Times:

The ability to make merry while reaching for the jugular is an essential characteristic for politicians, and friends say Ms. Pelosi learned it from one of the classic political bosses and characters of an earlier era, Thomas J. D’Alesandro, Jr…

In short, Pelosi is a master political operator whose Deep State connections extend all the way back to her birth.

Twisting the Levers of Power

Today, Pelosi remains one of the most influential Democrats in Congress. And one of its wealthiest members, with reported assets north of $200 million.

How does a humble servant of the people on a government salary amass such a huge fortune?

Pelosi’s made a killing being at the nexus, the dead center, of Deep State deal making.

She’s infamous for crooked schemes like directing more than $1 billion in subsidies to benefit a big Democratic donor’s company in which her husband was a major investor.

Pelosi knows how to keep the Deep State’s players happy… and her family gets rich for greasing the skids.

She also knows how to keep the wheels of the Deep State’s war machine rolling by supporting the surge in Afghanistan, the military “action” in Libya, and advocating our entry into Syria’s mess.

Pelosi is an essential cog within the Washington D.C. Deep State apparatus. She twists the power levers to ensure that the insiders prosper off the backs of people like you.

And she is damn good at her job.

Look, yes, Pelosi might come off as a loon with overdone Botox brain damage.

But the truth is she’s a savvy, dangerous operative.

She’s a shrewd political animal with proven skills and the required pathology to get what she wants.

So when she “guarantees” that Trump won’t become President, people should sit up and take notice… especially Donald.

This is another sign that the Deep State will do anything to make sure “Crooked Hillary” is the next President.

My Conversation With Mike Lofgren

Mike Lofgren knows all about the dangers of the Deep State and Pelosi’s ilk.

In fact, he literally wrote the book on it. It’s called “The Deep State – The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government.”

I spoke with Mike recently on my podcast.

Mike spent 28 years working in Congress, the last 16 as a senior analyst for the House and Senate Budget Committees.

He’s seen the inner workings of the Deep State firsthand. And the secrets he reveals are startling.

Here’s what you’ll learn in today’s podcast…

  • Why your vote doesn’t really matter
  • How the same system that invaded Iraq is the same system that exploded our deficit
  • How the Deep State ruthlessly silences its critics
  • How Hillary is about to get “reelected”
  • And much more…
