When Trump goes after mainstream news, he’s also going after its shadow brother, the CIA; and vice versa. This is no accident. You can’t put a heavy dent in one without putting a heavy dent in the other.
As the mainstream press continues to stir the pot and attack Trump on every possible front, day after day, they strive to impart the impression that the escalating war between Trump and the CIA is a sign that the president’s administration is in a condition of severe imbalance, heading toward the edge of the cliff.
Two points about that: the press is trying to protect its shadow brother, the CIA; and the reason a war between a president and the CIA hasn’t broken out since JFK and the Bay of Pigs is, simply, no president has dared to challenge the CIA openly.
Or to put it another way, every president since Kennedy SHOULD have gone to war with the CIA, but no president did.
Trump, so far, is carrying out his version of a war.
He may stop, he may make peace, he may turn away, he may decide the consequences are too steep, but so far he’s doing, in this respect, what he should be doing, because the CIA has believed, for a long, long time that it is the president, it runs the country, it decides the important issues, it fronts for mega-corporate incursions into foreign nations, it decides foreign policy, it calculates when a regime should be overthrown, it decides how to foment wars that will end up funneling huge chunks of cash to the military-industrial complex…
People with attention spans of less than six seconds think rooting out corruption in high places can be done with the stroke of a pen and an executive order. No. Afraid not.

I think the difference is JFK knew they were dirty and under handed but might not have believed the would go so far as to off an American president. Trump knows it to be true.

It's true. The American people have been the victims of a coup from the CIA led media, and continue to be, with no real recourse, unless someone with the audacity can make it happen. If He can lead us away from this bastion of ignorance used upon the American people then we all win. Public opinion has been controlled by the CIA and the NSA for much too long.
Those who would trade freedom for ignorance need to make a deal with themselves and either keep hating on Trump or eat some crow and then gain a new future, or everything will remain the same and even get much worse.

The more Trump tries to make America.... American, the more resistance we'll see from the other side.
It's not that the CIA is losing...it's more like their job is complete..
