    America, Meet Your New Dictator-in-Chief: The President’s Secret, Unchecked Powers

    Secret, unchecked presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.

    Mass Shootings: The Vicious Cycle Fueled By America’s Toxic Cult of Violence

    Mass Shootings: The Vicious Cycle Fueled By America’s Toxic Cult of Violence

    With alarming regularity, the nation is being subjected to a heartbreaking spate of violence that terrorizes the populace, fractures communities, and gives the government greater justifications to crack down, lock down, and institute even more authoritarian policies for the so-called sake of national security without many objections from the citizenry.

    Get Ready to Be Muzzled: The Coming War on So-Called Hate Speech

    Get Ready to Be Muzzled: The Coming War on So-Called Hate Speech

    Beware of those who want to monitor, muzzle, catalogue and censor speech. Especially be on your guard when the reasons given for limiting your freedoms end up expanding the government’s powers. After all, it’s a slippery slope from censoring so-called illegitimate ideas to silencing truth.

    Flagged as a Threat: Predictive AI Technology Puts a Target on Your Back

    You’ve been flagged as a threat. Before long, every household in America will be similarly flagged and assigned a threat score.

    When the Government Plays God: The Slippery Slope from Abortions to Executions

    In the 30 years since the U.S. Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling in Roe v.

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!
