I understand that the Obama layer has been pierced by arresting someone but that is not his Deep State unless it's all Fake News. Black ops, Dark money in government have been tracked way back. Easily followed to when George Bush the senior was the head of the C IA but he just seemed to institutionalize what was already there. Not very much upstairs in the gray cells to concoct it, but a hella footman for it. My sense is it really gained traction at the WWI fracas. It seemed to have 'won' the world wars. Is there a reason to name it after Obama?
