Another ‘secret society’ among the plotting boyars of Obamadom
The news that a "secret
society" of Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department
officials existed to undercut incoming President Trump, as described by Sen.
Ron Johnson, really does carry a "wow" factor. Johnson said he
heard of this based on the word of an informant, and the text messages
between FBI lovebirds Peter Stzok and Lisa Page use that exact wording.
Sure, a "secret society"
could have been a "joke"
as some on the anti-Trump left are claiming. Sure, it's a "conspiracy
theory" from a paranoid right, so these people say.
Strzok and Page
But it underlines that the age of
Obama did bring a lot of secret societies among its elites.
Obama's expansion and empowerment of
big government is probably the most obvious reason why it happened. Combine
that with a tech revolution that made everything public, (including even
espionage as Bradley Manning splattering America's secrets all over the
Internet attests), and the value of things that aren't public automatically
goes up. Combine that with the left's firm and abiding belief in its right to
rule, forever, as Castro did, and the conditions were ripe for the formation
The thing that makes this noteworthy,
however, is how foreign it is to the American experience.
Seriously, a 'secret society'? In a
place where freedom of assembly is bolted into the First Amendment of the
The 'secret society' cited by
both Strozk-Page, and Johnson's informant, has the weird vibe of Russian boyars, from the era
known as the Time
of Troubles, plotting against the Czar of all the Russias.
The boyars were originally
bureaucrats in its Kievian Rus origins, and eventually became independent
noblemen with land rights that couldn't be abolished by the Czar. Of course
they were jealous of preserving their fiefs and powers. So they formed secret
societies that eventually went after the Czar.
They closely resemble the bureaucrats
of FBI and DOJ who have since become powerful princelings in Obama's era of Big
State, and who retain a patina of "independence" under the guise of
professionalism. Anybody surprised that they too have formed secret societies
to go after Trump?

Weird, weird stuff in our supposed
democracy, which as Russian observers sometimes note, doesn't seem that much
like a democracy at all when you look at the elections and the rights of the
political class up close.
And that can only be attributed to
the power of an increasingly centralized government, which forms the heart of
the Deep State, and which is the hallmark of Obama's 'change' for America.
Obama's legacy seems to be boyars and secret socieites - and who knows how many
After all, we had Ezra Klein's JournoList, in which elite
journalists plotted their collective talking points for the sake of Obama.
We had the Environmental Protection
Agency officials writing in pseudonyms to evade Freedom of Information Act
requests. Remember 'Richard Windsor'?
We had Hillary Clinton illegally
using a private server and communicating with officials, including President
Obama, under pseudonyms. It raises the question that maybe one reason why the
FBI (and that specifically includes Strzok and Page) was so reluctant to
prosecute Clinton for her illegal private server is that so many of them were
doing it themselves.
And right now, there is Obama's
not-so-transparent political operation out in Kalorama, where his chief consigliere,
Valerie Jarrett, oddly, lives, and the president seeks to preserve
his legacy if not find some
way to indirectly retake power. It's not exactly open and it's certainly
not in line with what other ex-presidents have done with their retirement.
Secret societies, however they are
semantically identified, are a legacy of Obamadom. Getting rid of them will be
doable by regularizing laws and ending privileges. Whatever it's called, it
signals that Deep State is real and overdue for a hosing out.
