The Mueller Probe: A Demonstration of the Managerial/Deep State's Power

The Special Counsel Investigation commonly known as the Mueller probe is over. Charged ostensibly with the investigation of allegations of Russian interference with the 2016 Presidential election, it in fact had no clearly defined limits as to what the probe could investigate. It was a blank check issued to Mueller that he filled out to the max.

The result was a handful of unrelated process crimes, lying to the FBI, or unrelated crimes that occurred about 10 years ago. Absolutely no evidence of  Trump or any of his campaign or Whitehouse staff soliciting or accepting Russian government assistance in stealing the election from Hilary Clinton. It was all bullshit from the start, originating from the Clinton campaign as opposition research and all the participants knew it.

This should not only put an end to these scurrilous Russian collusion charges but shine a spotlight on the questionable if not illegal actions of the  FBI and Justice Department. But it doesn't and it won't either. They knowingly used outright fabrications in documents supplied by Christopher Steele to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on one Presidential candidate to benefit the opposing candidate. This is the same FBI and Justice Department who when investigating classified State department documents on Hilary Clinton's own personal server found that laws were indeed broken but no evidence of criminality found. Here with Trump, the opposite is true: No laws were broken but evidence of criminality was found.

That the FISA warrant was based on Steele's lies was memory holed. That there was an incestuous relationship between the Justice Department and Fusion GPS through Bruce and Nelly Orr was politely ignored. That an FBI lawyer and FBI Special Agent, both of whom were avowed Clinton partisans, sought ways to help derail his campaign or get him impeached, clearly abuse of authority, was quietly swept under the rug with their firings. An entire book can be written detailing all the dirty tricks the managerial state apparatchiks utilized in this obvious hit job on Trump. The ruling class was reacting to what they perceived as a threat to their power and interests and are still openly using their power to neutralize all threats.

What should be an exoneration of the charges that Boris and Natasha colluded with the bad Orange Man to steal the election from the rightful heir to the monarchy is being spun as it's not over yet.
This is simply a sop thrown to the faithful cultists of the Democrat party to keep up their morale.

But the ruling class also saw Trump's election as a servile insurrection and moved quickly to discredit Trump in both the Mueller probe and the incessant negative reporting in the mainstream media. It further served to demonstrate to the insubordinate MAGA plebs that the power of the ruling class cannot be defied by voting into office people from outside the accepted ruling class stable. Our votes no longer count for anything as the apparatchiks will either destroy or neutralize rebel electeds assuming they make it past the party gatekeepers to be nominated.

Although Trump was personally targeted by the managerial state for his refusal to go along with their agenda, the other target was the American people themselves. Especially those middle Americans who voted for Trump in the hopes of effecting real change in they way government is run and regaining citizen control of government policies.

So the purpose of this exercise was not only to politically damage President Trump but when juxtaposed to the Soviet style tactics of the Justice Department and the FBI and outcome of Clinton server scandal, it was to humiliate Trump supporters.  Because as Theodore Dalrymple noted: “In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

So this is where we are at now- A blatant display of the unquestionable and unstoppable exercise of the power of our ruling class through the apparatus of the managerial state and mainstream media.

And how will Joe and Jane Normie react to this?
The peasantry at large may or may not notice. They might or might not believe what they see on the T.V. news but that does not matter. The peasantry, aside from their natural instincts of obedience  to their betters, would otherwise be too engrossed in the big sportsball game or the latest hit reality T.V. show. As long as their bellies are full or at least not growling too much, or their iron rice bowl appears secure at least for the present, the peasantry will do nothing to rock the boat. They will chant "Orange Man bad" on cue to prove their loyalty when their betters are looking and some who know better will grumble amongst themselves out of earshot of their betters. Yet no matter how corrupt the system is or how blatant the lies they are told, for the foreseeable future the peasant will go along to get along while life is somewhat tolerable.
