    COVID-19 Tested Our Commitment to Freedom. Four Years Later, We’re Still Failing

    COVID-19 was a test to see how little resistance the citizenry would offer up to the government’s power grabs when made in the name of national security. “We the people” failed that test spectacularly. Four years later, we're still failing.

    We’ve Already Got a Dictator-in-Chief: How Absolute Power Corrupted the President

    Any presidential candidate who promises to be a dictator on day one, if elected, will be a dictator-in-chief for life. Then again, the president is already a dictator with permanent powers: imperial, unaccountable and unconstitutional.

Thank you

Please read Mr. Whiteheads books. They are quite illuminating on the surveillance state and the police state on the horizon. I honestly couldn’t figure out how the sophist would pull off a totalitarian police state. Now in 2020 we see how it was possible, and how easy it was. While I think it’s impossible to wake up the masses, I highly appreciate his efforts.

Excellent commentary, but.

He believes in liberty and identifies the many illegal government acts against US citizens but he never identifies the source of the problem. Since a foreign usury cartel created a central bank, America has become a corporatist take over victim. Money is printed out of thin air and used to buy off our Congress. Americans have no representation in our political system.

I have read many of his books!

I have read many of his books—going back to the 1980’s. A reread of many of those books seem prophetic when viewing through the rear view mirror of today!
