The American Constitution Society held a national convention in Washington this week, and the discussions they had there were more than a little disturbing. They were essentially discussing the “deep state” and how it can be used to undermine the Trump administration.
Bureaucrats, students, and academics gathered to defend the bloated federal bureaucracy. American University law professor William Yeomans said during a speech at the event: “[President Trump’s] values are simply not consistent with the values of people who are committed to public service and who believe deeply in the importance of public service.”
The liberals are threatened because President Trump wants to decrease regulations and thin down unnecessary positions in the federal government. Big surprise! Not to be outdone, UCLA law professor Jon Michaels said something even creepier:
“We hear a lot of language about draining the swamp and this idea about a deep state that somehow was going to thwart the intentions or the political mandate of the president. I kind of embrace this notion of the ‘deep state.‘”
The “deep state” refers to a coalition of federal government employees who are actively working against the Trump administration.
Michaels continued, saying that ‘leaking to the media’ and ‘rogue tweeting’ are legitimate and necessary ways for federal employees to push back against President Trump.
Frankly, I find all of this totally disgusting, and just proves the incredible task President Trump is up against—having to deal with rogue members of his own civil service. Even more reason to Drain The Swamp!
