"The Deep State or the swamp basically control the politicians, the media, the churches and the schools. They control everything because they have all the money and that's always the problem. Power and money always consolidate in the hands of a few and it has to be kind of torn apart in order for things to get fixed," Diamond said during the July 12 episode of "America Unhinged" on Brighteon.TV.
Diamond was joined by historian and author Larry Schweikart who talked about his book "Dragon Slayers."
Schweikart, a former rock and roll drummer and history professor at the University of Dayton, said six American presidents waged war with the swamp or Deep State: Abraham Lincoln, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.
According to the historian, these presidents took on different heads of the same swamp creature.
Lincoln was totally successful in killing the slave swamp while Cleveland was partially successful with the spoils swamp who were in the practice of giving away government jobs.
Roosevelt had to battle with the trust swamp that was made up of about three to five companies that owned almost 80 to 85 percent of every industry in America. Roosevelt also staved off a socialist revolution in America by enacting laws on the big corporations.
Kennedy saw the threat posed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but he needed the agency to do what he wanted to get done. Reagan campaigned against the swamp but he also needed the swamp to defeat the Soviet Union and aggressively reduce the size of government.
And then there's Trump.
Schweikart, author of more than 25 books, said that Trump had to take on the entire swamp: the Big Tech, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the intel agencies, the state department, the hidden military and the Department of Defense, among others.
He noted that the entire government was aligned against Trump when he engaged in any kind of reform and reduction of the Deep State's power. (Related: Deep state boasts of "conspiracy" against Trump in 2020 election.)
The historian urged Americans to keep the pressure on the Deep State to score a massive win in the coming midterm elections.
Diamond said the Americans know victory is within their grasp. "The American people understand that the Democratic Party is basically the Communist Party of America and that even diehard Democrats are no longer on board with them," Diamond said.
"Nobody trusts the media. Nobody trusts Hollywood and Disney. They have lost absolutely every bit of control of the power and the narrative. The only thing that they have left is possibly crashing the economy."
That's a horrible thing to do, but these Democrats are prepared to do everything to stay in power. Diamond said Americans who intentionally hurt and destroy their fellow Americans are violating federal law that is punishable by death.
"Americans should hold these people accountable to the law and punish them according to the law so that a lot of the suffering that America is going through would end," Diamond said.
