Miles Taylor, Deep-State Throat for The New York Times, Comes Out of the Closet Like a Halloween Skeleton

Miles Taylor, Deep-State Throat for The New York Times, Comes Out of the Closet Like a Halloween Skeleton by David Haggith for The Great Recession

Miles Taylor just outed himself as The New York Times’ Deep Throat, a.k.a. “Anonymous,” who boasted he was part of an internal soft coup against the Trump Administration by the deep state. He is now being called a deep fake by, well, nearly everyone.

On September 5, 2018, The New York Times published a highly controversial opinion editorial titled “I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” with a note at the top that said, “The Times is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure.” The paper or record later defined “a senior official” as meaning someone in the “upper echelons of an administration.”

On Wednesday, that official revealed himself. Miles Taylor, who once told CNN he only wears masks at Halloween and during pandemics, removed his Taylor-made mask right before Halloween to claim he is “Anonymous.” Never mind his twice-told tale to CNN that he had no idea who Anonymous was:

In spite of Taylor’s lies as a paid contributor to CNN, the network is keeping him on. Apparently, The Times’ source is the kind or resource CNN likes.

Now that he’s come out, we can see why The Times published him as “Anonymous.” The name gave him that Deep-Throat mystique he needed to gain attention. Without that scary mask, Miles Taylor was a virtual unknown. The Times could not have claimed he was a “senior official” when he was, in fact, a relatively minor player in the Trump government. Taylor didn’t attain a leadership role within his own department until months after The Times published his op-ed.

How scary would Ghostface be in the movie Scream without his mask of anonymity or Jason in Friday the 13th? As with QAnon, the name “Anonymous” inflated Miles Taylor beyond what he deserved. While he rose after his op-ed to become second-in-command of Homeland Security as chief of staff, he was merely a “policy advisor” when he wrote his hit piece.

Knave Dave — vigilante against the false profits of The Great Recession Too many criminal CEOs still fill their porky bellies with the biggest taxpayer bailouts in the history of the world. These bailouts protect their reputations, saving them from the fall they should have taken. They continue to receive bonuses for having done an unparalleled job of destroying their companies! Many of their companies wouldn’t be making any profit at all if not for the interest they’re making off of nearly free government bailouts. Just this week Hewlett-Packard fired its CEO, but is still paying him a bonus of millions of dollars in exchange for a year of corporate wandering in the wilderness. Netflix’s CEO cost his company hundreds of thousands of subscribers and had to reverse his decision. Bank of America’s CEO launched a debit-card fee plan that was immediately stupid in the eyes of many, but greed an arrogance led him to think he could pass it by his customers, and he lost customers in droves and had to reverse his decision, as did the many major banks that followed him. Since these corporate leaders do things most of us can immediately see as being dumb, why are they rewarded with salaries a thousand times greater than many of us make?
