The Democrats Do Their Job Again by Paul Street writing at Counterpunch.org
Though one flaw in Street's analysis is that the neoliberal-neoconservative faction of the Deep State isn't just taking defeat lying down. Here is my analysis of what I think is going on:
What I think is going on with this clusterfuck of an election is that two different factions of the US Deep State are in open and hostile conflict with one another, and neither one of these factions is "on the side of the angels". The neoliberal-neoconservative-consensus faction is pursuing confrontation with Russia and China that could lead to global thermonuclear war, and a more paleoconservative faction that is usually content to remain silent decided to get behind Trump's campaign in the interest of preventing armageddon. To be sure, the Republican establishment doesn't really like Trump, but they also realize that this may be their last real chance to get Obamacare totally repealed. And since I really don't think Russia wants World War 3, either, it stands to reason the Russians would do whatever they could to help this mysterious rogue faction.
And now the dominant neoliberal-neoconservative-consensus faction is trying to retaliate by creating a new McCarthyism of which the special-snowflake Tumblrina feminists with their "76 genders" are ironically enough making themselves the willing dupes. But I guess it's not surprising considering what easily manipulated authoritarian fools the special snowflakes are. The faking of hate-crimes to make Trump supporters look bad sure is a nice little touch of class, isn't it?
While I'm sure the Russians engaged in psy-ops and counter-psy-ops aplenty (and possibly even the cyber-attack on the Democratic National Committee), I continue to harbor strong doubts that they were the source of the Wikileaks e-mails or were involved in any election-theft that might have occurred. Such allegations are probably more psy-ops from neoliberal-neoconservative-consensus faction of the Deep State.
