What is the "deep state?"

The deep state is our government with all its laws and regulations about what is allowed by individuals and corporations. But if you are an Ayn Rand capitalist, or a corporate monopolist, or a selfish libertarian, or a greedy no taxes-no safety net-no unions, or a white supremacist intent on suppressing the vote, or a Dominionist fundamentalist, or a Catholic opus dei member, then maybe you think laws and regulations and equal justice and opportunity under the law shouldn't apply to you.

Maybe you think that your religious beliefs should be taught in public schools, or you should be free to dump your coal ash and industrial waste into whatever stream, river, lake, or ocean is most convenient.

Can someone please explain Barr to me -- seriously

I understand Trump. He's a criminal con artist in debt to the Russian mob. But what does Barr get out of his treason? Is Barr a Dominionist, who wants to install a Christian Taliban government?
