Introduction: This is one of Fox News's more interesting cons that actually links to the 9/11 truth movement (particularly the right wing variety that surround Alex Jones and Infowars). Of course, Fox News has always opposed any sort of investigation into 9/11 (including the commission) so thier intent was not to seem like saviors to the 9/11 truth movement but that is precisely the effect on the minds of the gullible right. In this "Deep State" is not only encapsulated Fox News's weird defense of Trump's actions but also allows right wingers who believe in 9/11 truth to somehow think that Fox News is on their side. I believe Fox News (such as Hannity and others) know about this Infowars con and have been exploiting it for a while. Its only solution is, of course, a transparent investigation into 9/11 but using science this time and not the GOP's climate science denial style Nazi tactics.
The right-wing obsession with the “deep state” conspiracy theory
Right-wing media blame literally everything on the “deep state,” which does not exist.
The proof that Hannity copied Alex Jones is clear;

Hannity responds to report Trump is under investigation: "biggest act ... of retribution we have ever seen from the deep state" Sean Hannity: “It has now turned into a political witch hunt against the president of the United States”
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that the special counsel, Robert Mueller, is investigating President [Donald] Trump for possible obstruction of justice. Now this is the biggest act -- I want you to pay attention -- of retribution we have ever seen from the deep state in the history of this country. Just as we have been saying on this program, it has now turned into a political witch hunt against the president of the United States.

Fox & Friends cites “one of the online blogs” to claim James Comey might be behind "deep-state leaks” Steve Doocy, citing The Gateway Pundit: "You've got to wonder whether or not Jim Comey was actually the source of" the leaks Following former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, co-host Steve Doocy cited "one of the online blogs" to claim that, "Out of the 39 deep state leaks, I think I think it was about ten of them related to Jim Comey, so you've got to wonder whether or not Jim Comey was actually the source of" the leaks. Doocy's source appears to be the serially incorrect right-wing blog The Gateway Pundit, which, following Comey's testimony, wrote that "Many of these 'leaks' are now proven fabrications and the probability that many remaining ‘leaks’ are completely inaccurate is very high." The Gateway Pundit is a conspiracy-theory peddling right-wing blog with ties to the “alt-right” that is regularly propped up by Fox News, and that in the Trump administration has participated in daily White House press briefings. From the June 9 edition of Fox News' :
Note: This is how the CIA botched Iraq post-9/11: Bob Gates, careerist sycophancy, and the real history of the Deep State A veteran CIA officer explains to Salon exactly where the agency has gone wrong for decades — and the consequences
In a lengthy exchange with Ray McGovern, or when you listen to him speak, a lot comes at you. This is a former C.I.A. officer who, as branch chief in the analysis section, counted daily White House briefings among his tasks. Given his years out in Langley, Virginia—from the early Kennedy days until he retired in 1990—he was witness to the agency’s collapse into a factory producing politically and ideologically motivated “intelligence.” Long before the end, Langley had turned into a building full of “prostitutes”—McGovern’s word “not too strong.” McGovern can get very granular as he describes what he saw. Elsewhere in the News, a discriminating new website that searches out material you ought to see but may miss, just posted this remarkable radio interview, in which McGovern analyzes the fate of the 2002 intelligence report advising the Bush II administration there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. More than a million deaths and one Islamic State later, McGovern tells us what this kind of corruption looks like from the inside and how it felt to watch it.
Mind Control (or Hypnosis, as Pirro put it) is also one of the rights scapegoats for people believing science over thier bullshit;
Alex Jones: The Texas church gunman carried out his attack while under “mind control” from the deep state Jones: “That guy tried to kill his high command and they said, ‘Put this guy into a black project. Scramble his brain. This guy’s a perfect candidate as a wind-up toy’”
Sean Hannity Warns Listeners About The “Globalist Establishment” And “Mind Control”
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I am sick and tired of the Republican establishment, and we’re going to deal with this in 21 days. In exactly three weeks from today people go to the polls and we’ll decide our future. But I gotta tell you, there is a corporate establishment, they’re in bed with the Republican establishment, they’re in bed with the Democratic establishment. They are in bed with the globalist establishment. And we have been lied to on a scale, and we have been manipulated on a scale that is frankly, in my opinion, is reminiscent of former Soviet Union propaganda and mind control. That’s how bad I think it is. You know, look at what we discovered, the Politico reporter Glenn Rush, oh isn’t that nice, who identifies himself as a hack for John Podesta. Just please don’t tell anybody I’m a total hack for you. And then WikiLeaks they got all the journalists that dined at the Clinton’s staffer’s homes. Isn’t that nice?
Deep State Are Also, Basically, the Globalists;
Alex Jones: "Sean Hannity is currently the main leader of the resistance against the globalists" Jones: "Sean Hannity talks to Trump two to three times a day"
Alex Jones says his “greatest achievement” was briefing Trump about the "globalists" before he got elected Jones: "Nobody talks to the president who isn't in the White House more than Sean Hannity"
ALEX JONES (HOST): They have go, "[Sean] Hannity, you're going to get fired if you keep quoting Alex Jones." He's not quoting me. Nobody talks to the president who isn’t in the White House more than Sean Hannity, let me just give you that news flash. You might as well be hearing Trump talk. So get that -- Trump knows all of it. And guess who briefed him before he got elected, and before he got in the White House, and guess who told him word for word what they would do? Word for word? I did. And I told him, “You go talk to top generals. You go talk to experts of overthrowing countries, and you get ready, sir, because this is how they’re going to do it.” My greatest achievement, that’s right. And that’s why the globalists -- they listen to my phones, they know -- they hate me. They hate me. Because I’m a wartime analyst for the republic and we’re winning.
Sean Hannity Unhinged: “Everything That Conspiracy Theorists Have Said” Is “True” Hannity: “It’s A Media Assault On Your Mind”
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I want to go over this, what I'm calling a Republican establishment, Democratic establishment, media establishment, globalist, lobbyist, UN establishment. It's everything that conspiracy theorists have said over the years and all of this is out there now in the open, in terms of what Hillary Clinton thinks and what she believes and what John Podesta thinks about Catholics and well let's have left wing activists plot a Catholic Spring and lets infiltrate the Catholic Church. Let's advance our progressive ideology to foment revolution. Who thinks like this? This is like, you know, Communism in the Soviet Union propaganda. It’s really sad but it's also true and it's also reality and it's also the world you live. You know, Hillary Clinton’s dream of a hemispheric common market, open trade and open borders. She said that in one of her speeches. Hillary Clinton campaign said they wanted to face Trump in the general election. Okay, let's see what happens in 27 days. I still think Trump can win. Now for the Nate Silvers of the world who say “Hannity doesn't believe in polls, he only cites online polling after Trump wins the debate.” No, that’s not true. The polls right now are not accurate, because the polls out now reflect 72 straight hours more coverage of the Access Hollywood tapes that we now know that NBC purposely delayed the release of, to time it before the debate as TMZ reports. So it doesn't reflect Donald Trump's incredible debate performance, it doesn't reflect yet another 1200 Wikileak drops today, it doesn't reflect what we've learned from the previous Wikileaks drops, it doesn't reflect that, you know, that Hillary knew that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were funding ISIS, it doesn't reflect the media -- you know what this is, this is a media assault on your mind. What you mean by that Hannity? Cause they’re propagandizing you, they’re posing as objective journalists and they are not as we know about Univision, as we know about NBC, as we know about CNBC, as we know about the New York Times and the Boston Globe and CNN. And we also know that they conspire and release questions to Hillary ahead of time. We know all of this is true.
Conclusion: So "Deep State" was started by Alex Jones to cover for Trump and himself so they could both betray the country using 9/11 truth as the reason for their treason and is now a mainstream concept.
In more detail: Deep State is the boogeyman that the right likes to blame for everything. Its basically the new word for the fictional "Illuminati" that the dumbest conspiracy theorists like to blame everything in the world on. I haven't been tracking the use of this word from the start but I saw why Alex Jones created "The Deep State". Creating a "Deep State" was a necessity for Alex Jones - strategically - as a way to explain to his followers/believers why Trump hasn't fulfilled the promise they think he made about 9/11 i.e. a large portion of people in the dumb conspiracy right think Trump is battling the Deep State that is opposing him because he will bring the 9/11 people to justice, which he will not. If Alex Jones didn't do this, WHILE supporting Trump, he could have been accused of being a hypocrite or a liar. Then others picked "Deep State" up from Alex Jones as a way to disrupt Rule Of Law for Trump's sake as per the Fox News mandate of choosing party over country to support their dear leader at all costs. Now Deep State has become like some fictional demon parents conjure up to scare kids to sleep and it pervades the right, like some dirty little secret only the right knows.
