In today's episode, host Marc Clair is joined by Mike Lofgren, a former U.S. Congressional aide who has written several books detailing what he learned during his time in Congress, including his latest "Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government".
Mike gets things started by describing how he became a Congressional aide, and why he came to review the Republican Party as resembling an "apocalyptic cult." Mike then details the "Deep State" - just what the term refers to, what the major components are, and just how it first came about. Marc and Mike go on to discuss whether the popularity of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is in some way a rebellion against the Deep State by the electorate, the implications for individual rights and the rule of law, and just what can be done to combat it.
Enjoy this eye-opening look at just how the U.S. government really functions.
