CIA Operatives to Run for Congress in 2018

Wiki

For many years, it has been rumored that CIA operatives have been placed into sensitive positions in what normally is considered the private sector – particularly the media, education, and law enforcement. Now, the World Socialist Web Site reports that a record-setting number of ex-CIA operatives are openly seeking Democratic nominations for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel openly moving into legislatures has no precedent in US political history.

Of the 102 primary elections that will choose Democratic nominees this year, 44 will include candidates with a military-intelligence or State-Department background. The Deep State already has great influence in the private sector but now wants to move out of the shadow and control politics directly. [ President Trump has expressed a desire to create a new intelligence agency that will be loyal to him and not part of the Deep State. However, since he has loaded up his present administration with Deep State hangovers from the Clinton era, why should we expect a different pattern for yet one more secret, unaccountable intelligence agency?] -GEG

WSWS reports:

An extraordinary number of former intelligence and military operatives from the CIA, Pentagon, National Security Council and State Department are seeking nomination as Democratic candidates for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel into the legislature has no precedent in US political history.

If the Democrats capture a majority in the House of Representatives on November 6, as widely predicted, candidates drawn from the military-intelligence apparatus will comprise as many as half of the new Democratic members of Congress. They will hold the balance of power in the lower chamber of Congress. […]

One quarter of all the Democratic challengers in competitive House districts have military-intelligence, State Department or NSC backgrounds. This is by far the largest subcategory of Democratic candidates. National security operatives (57) outnumber state and local government officials (45), lawyers (35), corporate executives, businessmen and wealthy individuals (30) and other professionals (19) among the candidates for Democratic congressional nominations.

Of the 102 primary elections to choose the Democratic nominees in these competitive districts, 44 involve candidates with a military-intelligence or State Department background, with 11 districts having two such candidates, and one district having three. In the majority of contests, the military-intelligence candidates seem likely to win the Democratic nomination, and, if the Democrats win in the general election, would enter Congress as new members of the House of Representatives.

Yet, where does this new development tie in with the Deep State’s war on President Trump?

Kim Dotcom hits the nail squarely on the head.

“The Deep State no longer wants to rely on unreliable puppets. They want to run politics directly now,” the internet entrepreneur tweeted in response to the report Saturday.
