Former CIA Station Chief Scott Uehlinger says the 2016 Presidential Election put “America in totally unknown territory.” Uehlinger explains, “I lived in countries like Azerbaijan, Moldova and Kosovo.  These were rough and tumble places where this was my bread and butter.  There was always a Prime Minister or a head of state that was using intelligence services to embarrass or frame or destroy members of the opposition party.  This is something I have seen time and time again.  This is something I have had to collect intelligence on time and time and time again, and I think this kind of gives me a unique perspective into what is going on in the United States right now.  I have seen this all before, but we also have to remember that this has never been here before.  This is something new for Americans and, unfortunately, it’s not really new for me.

Uehlinger says that former President Obama is running his own shadow government. Uehlinger contends, “Shadow government is a mainstream expression even in the countries where I lived.  When you are a Prime Minister in power, you always had an opposition Prime Minister or a shadow Prime Minister.  The opposition guy lines up his guys, and each of them has an opposite number in the administration.  Actually, Obama has set up, and he can call it anything he wants, but, effectively, it is a shadow government, and it’s designed to undercut the legitimacy of the Trump Administration.  We are in unknown territory here.”

So, what does Trump have to do to survive and succeed? Uehlinger says, “Trump needs to be more aggressive in bringing in his supporters, people who believe in what his campaign stood for.  He needs to bring them more quickly into the government.  In the meantime, these offices are empty, and until it’s filled with somebody who is an inherent of President Trump, it’s going to be occupied temporarily by a civil servant who is elevated to that position and . . .  most of those people are Democrats.  So, the faster President Trump moves in and fills up these buildings, the better off he’s going to be.”

Uehlinger goes on to say, “Trump is not there by himself. 30% of the agencies are going to be people who think the way I do.  It’s the same way that most cops that deal in the real world are conservatives, it’s the same way in the CIA.  The academics and those people who are products of the universities are going to be more liberal.  However, the people in the streets, the case officers and operations officers such as myself, who are up to our elbows in the real world and understand how the real world works, I think a lot of those people think the status quo is intolerable and has to be changed.  So, Mr. Trump has support, but he doesn’t have as much because of the natural tendency that the civil servants tend to be Democrat.”

    America is a slave colony, the people have been dumbed down like a herd of cattle. The people are free just like cows, right up to the second they get the sledge hammer between the eyes.

    Besides filling government positions with pro-American Trump supporters, Trump should consider putting Obama, Clinton and their people on the defensive with aggressive investigations for fraud and criminal activity. Additionally, there could be leaks of previously sealed records regarding Obama’s very questionable past.

    In other words, a strong offense is a good defense.
