Episode #20: The Roots of the Deep State

Download this episode

After riffing on the absurdity of the “Vax Live” coronavirus vaccine awareness concert, Jacob and Eric explain how the newly-selected Republican nominee for Virginia’s gubernatorial election, Glenn Youngkin, is actually a RINO and D.C. insider with a very suspicious past, including openly encouraging his supporters to donate to the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center and the NAACP. For the main topic, after reacting to the awful new “recruiting” videos being posted by the C.I.A. featuring minorities preaching about identity politics, they analyze the origins of the Deep State’s earliest imperialist tendencies under the presidency of Harry Truman, which led to the obsessive push for interventionist policies throughout the Cold War and the post-9/11 era.
