I said it in 2017 to people who believed Trump would actually “Drain the swamp” and “Make America Great Again;” it doesn’t matter who is elected President or which party controls The Senate and House of Representatives, little changes from administration to administration because the same people are really in charge. It’s the same here in Britain and in the main EU nations, Australia, Canada, probably Japan too and of course in Russia, China and other non — democratic states and pseudo — democracies.
Refer to ‘The Deep State’ and accusations that you are a ‘conspiracy theorist’ and that there is no such thing as the deep state. There is no organisation of government department of that name, but Deep State is simply a colloquialism, a convenient way of referring to the hidden relationships between the political elite (not necessarily elected officials but including senior civil servants and advisers, appointed officers of QUANGOs; quasi — autonomous — non — governmental — organisations;) and the business and finance elite. These people cannot be thrown out of office by voters.
