  • ?Lofgren leaves no president or party unscathed. . . Although The Deep State might sound like an expose on, say, the government?s assasination of JFK, or a cover-up of UFOs, the real story is much more insidious, realistic and troubling.? ?Pittsburg Post-G

Description

ABOUT THE DEEP STATE
The New York Times bestselling author of The Party Is Over delivers a no-holds-barred expose' of who really wields power in Washington
 
Every four years, tempers are tested and marriages fray as Americans head to the polls to cast their votes. But does anyone really care what we think? Has our vaunted political system become one big, expensive, painfully scripted reality TV show? In this powerful expose of the sins and excesses of Beltwayland, a longtime Republican party insider argues that we have become an oligarchy in form if not in name. Hooked on war, genuflecting to big donors, in thrall to discredited economic theories and utterly bereft of a moral compass, America's governing classes are selling their souls to entrenched interest while our bridges collapse, wages, stagnate, and our water is increasingly undrinkable.
 
Mike Lofgren was the first to use the term Deep State, in an essay and exclusive interview on Moyers and Company, to refer to a web of entrenched interests in the US government and beyond (most notably Wall Street and Silicon Valley, which controls access to our every click and swipe) that dictate America's defense decisions, trade policies and priorities with little regard for the actual interests or desires of the American people. In this essential and eye-opening book, Lofgren takes his argument one step further. Drawing on insights gleaned over three decades on Capitol Hill, much of it on the Budget Committee, he paints a gripping portrait of the dismal swamp on the Potomac and the revolution it will take to reclaim our government and set us back on course.
