Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has jumped into President Donald Trump’s war against the so-called Deep State. The Deep State is a phrase that refers to long-serving government officials in the CIA, FBI and other agencies. However, Jones thinks the Deep State is a code word for something more nefarious.
“He can’t come out and say it, but when Trump says Deep State, it’s a code word for shape-shifting aliens,” said Jones on his show “InfoWars.”
Jones believes the world is secretly being run by a cabal of shape-shifting reptilian aliens. Jones has previously said they have been directing operations against Trump.
However, Jones isn’t the only Republican to accuse Deep State actors of attacking Trump.
According to Media Matters, FOX News commentator Lou Dobbs is ready to declare war against the Deep State.
“It may be time to declare war outright against the deep state, and clear out the rot in the upper levels of the FBI and the Justice Department,’” said Dobbs. “The FBI and the DOJ have broken the public trust by destroying evidence, defying oversight and actively trying to bring down the Trump presidency. Tonight, there are new concerns that anti-Trump FBI officials formed even a secret society at the FBI to subvert the president after his election. That’s according to two Republican lawmakers who have seen some of the thousands of texts between the FBI’s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”
Right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh accused the Deep State of leading President George W. Bush into the Iraq war.
“So, we know the deep state can mobilize if they want to, and they can create false narratives that everybody in the media believes. They even had the Republican party for a year believing that Trump had conspired with Russia maybe to steal the election,” said Limbaugh. “What if Saddam weapons of mass destruction was also a false narrative designed to — what, did it ultimately embarrass Bush? Did it weaken the US military? Did it — whatever it did, I mean, it opened the doors for the Democrats to literally destroy his presidency in the second term, which is what they did.”
