Robert Steele: Will US and French Armies Be Key to Taking Down Deep State?


U.S. Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark A. Milley, hosts Gen. Jean-Pierre Bosser, Chief of Staff, French Army, during a counter-part visit in Arlington, Va., December 1, 2016. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. 1st Class Chuck Burden)

The shadow foreign minister of France sent me the below headline, asking what I thought. I told him that while we all know that Sorcha Faal is a fabrication shop with one David Booth behind the scenes, that I and my editors value Sorcha Faal because the links are always real and useful, and the narrative — which may be contrived — is always worth considering,

In my view General Milley’s commitment to the Constitution is priceless. I have written before about how our military has lost its integrity and obeyed illegal unconstitutional orders (e.g. invading Iraq on the basis of 935 known lies).

As the president prepares to shut down the US border, with my fellow former Marine lieutenant now Commandant of the Marine Corps Bob Neller contemplating resignation because he thinks securing the border is beneath him, this is a very good time to reflect on the Constitution, the US military, the President’s good instincts, and the pressing need to appoint a Secretary of Defense with intelligence, integrity, and imagination — someone who can defend the border, leave NATO, close all our bases overseas, stop funding dicators and their repressive militaries, and help the military-industrial complex beat swords into plowshares.

I learned the hard way, watching Senator John Warner (R-VA) defeat the National Security Act of 1992 that included an Open Source Agency — reform has to be job and revenue neutral from state to state and district to district if it is to have any hope.  Fair enough. What is lacking at the top in DoD  today is someone who understands that our Grand Strategy must repurpose defense from being a cesspool for spending money on profitable waste that cannot win wars, toward an engine for DOMESTIC peace and prosperity with the ability to destroy any enemy anywhere from a standing start AT HOME.

Securing the border is fundamental. Bringing our troops and their wallets home is fundamental. Ending waste and 90% profit for banks while creating tens of millions of jobs in infrastructure at home is fundamental.  Defense is the linch pin for a renaissance of the American economy, but only if the focus shifts from scattered forces abroad, to concentrated home-based catalysts for economic innovation at home.

NB: Jim Webb or Doug Macgregor would be better candidates for SecDef.  All I want to do is unscrew the US intelligence community and move it from 4% to 100% of needed relevant information and essential decision-support across all functional areas, not just the two where it focuses now.

  1. Lets see what kind of a “SPY” Mr. Steele is:
    Can he name these people who are the deep state???
    Why doesn’t he name them???
    Perhaps he could explain exactly what deep state is???

  2. I can’t speak for the Army, and I am sure Gordon can confirm. But the naval officer corps is a vain, petty, corrupt, and incompetent gaggle of losers. They are totally without honor. There are exceptions, but those officers get out as soon as possible once they know the score.

    • The army is much the same, and it is by design. The US Army command, from top down to pretty low levels has been a distinctly sub-standard, third rate organisation since the 1950s, all the good men are deliberately weeded out and discarded by the time they reach the level of colonel and only those with ‘moral flexibility’ are promoted. Your description of the Navy fits the Army to a tee.

    • The German Officer Corps was dominated by Prussians, many of them from the land owning Junker class, which meant they owned estates in the east, on territory that is today Lithuania and Poland. This meant that the general populace of the region in which these Junker officers came from was largely Slavic, not German, therefore the Junkers saw Slavs as peasants and beneath them. This was why they readily accepted the Nazi Untermensch rhetoric and were all too willing to turn a blind eye to the worst excesses of the Nazi regime – the Prussian Junkers were very arrogant, very racist and very convinced they were superior. As for Christians and moral flexibility, there is nothing new about that, they have always been selective about who they applied their moral stance to, just look at their truly murderous and genocidal track record when it comes to dealing with people with dark skin, be it the hundreds of millions of black Africans taken into slavery or the millions of ‘heathens’ slaughtered by the various crusades over several centuries, be they northern European pagans or middle eastern Muslims.
