Totalitarian paranoia spiked
What we have been
saddled with is a government so power-hungry, paranoid and
afraid of losing its stranglehold on power that it has conspired
to wage war on anyone who dares to challenge its authority.
In a Machiavellian
attempt to expand its powers, the government unleashed all
manner of dangers on an unsuspecting populace in order to
justify its demands for additional powers to protect "we the
people" from emerging threats, whether legitimate, manufactured
state of our nation suffered
The nation remained
politically polarized, controlled by forces beyond the purview
of the average American, and rapidly moving the nation away from
its freedom foundation.
The combined blowback
from a contentious presidential election and the
COVID-19 'pandemic' resulted in
Americans being subjected to egregious,
violations, invasive surveillance, martial law, lockdowns,
political correctness, erosions of free speech, strip
searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, government
spying, and the criminalization of lawful activities.
Thought crimes became a target for punishment
For years now, the
government has used all of the weapons in its vast arsenal,
threat assessments, fusion centers, pre-crime programs, hate
crime laws, militarized police, lockdowns, martial law,
potential enemies of the state based on their ideologies,
behaviors, affiliations and other characteristics that might be
deemed suspicious or dangerous.
In other words, if
you dare to subscribe to any views that are contrary to the
government's, you may well be suspected of being a domestic
terrorist and treated accordingly.
In 2022, those who
criticized the government - whether that criticism manifested
itself in word, deed or thought - were flagged as dangerous
alongside consumers and spreaders of "mis- dis- and
Speech was muzzled
Those who want to
monitor, muzzle, catalogue and censor speech continued to push
for social media monitoring, censorship of flagged content that
could be construed as dangerous or hateful, and limitations on
free speech activities, particularly online.
Of course, it's a
slippery slope from censoring so-called illegitimate ideas to
telling the truth
will become a revolutionary act...!
If the government can
control speech, it can control thought and, in turn, it can
control the minds of the citizenry.
switches aimed to turn off more than just your car
switches" were sold to the public as a safety measure aimed at
keeping drunk drivers off the roads, but they were a perfect
metaphor for the government's efforts to not only take control
of our cars but also our freedoms and our lives.
For too long, we have
been captive passengers in a driverless car controlled by the
government, losing more and more of our privacy and autonomy the
further down the road we go.
Currency went digital
No matter how much
money the government pulls in, it's never enough, so the
government came up with a new plan to make it even easier for
its agents to seize Americans' bank accounts.
In an Executive
Order issued in March 2022, President
Biden called for the
federal government to consider establishing a form of digital
Digital currency will provide
the government and its corporate partners with a mode of
commerce that can easily be monitored, tracked, tabulated, mined
for data, hacked, hijacked and confiscated when convenient.

Age of Intolerance, policed by techno-censors, social media
bullies, and government watchdogs.
Everything has now
become fair game for censorship if it can be construed as
hateful, hurtful, bigoted or offensive provided that it runs
counter to the established viewpoint.
Homes were invaded
violated the Fourth Amendment at will
under the pretext of public health and safety.
This doesn't even
begin to touch on the many ways the government and its corporate
partners-in-crime used surveillance technology to invade homes:
thermal imaging, surveillance cameras, and other monitoring
Political theater kept the public distracted
Having devolved into
a carefully calibrated exercise in how to manipulate, polarize,
propagandize and control a population, the political scene
provided ample diversions with its televised Jan. 6 committee
hearings, the Russia-Ukraine crisis, the Ketanji Brown Jackson
confirmation hearings, and more.
Bodily integrity was undermined
Caught in the
crosshairs of a showdown between the rights of the individual
and the so-called "emergency" state, concerns about COVID-19
mandates and bodily integrity remained part of a much larger
debate over the ongoing power struggle between the citizenry and
the government over our property "interest" in our bodies.
This debate over
bodily integrity covered broad territory, ranging from abortion
and forced vaccinations to biometric surveillance and basic
Although the Supreme
Court overturned its earlier rulings recognizing abortion as a
constitutional right under the Fourteenth Amendment, it did
nothing to resolve the larger problem that plagues us today:
namely, that all
along the spectrum of life - from the unborn child to the
aged - the government continues to play fast and loose with
the lives of the citizenry.
government's fiscal insanity reached new heights
debt (the amount the federal government has borrowed
over the years and must pay back) hit $30
That translates to
It's estimated that
the amount this country owes is now 130% greater than its gross
domestic product (all the products and services produced in one
year by labor and property supplied by the citizens).
That debt is also
growing exponentially: it is expected to be
twice the size of the U.S. economy
Surveillance got creepier
On any given day, the
average American going about his daily business was monitored,
surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways,
by both government and corporate eyes and ears.
In such a
surveillance ecosystem, we're
all suspects and databits to be tracked, catalogued and
With every new
AI surveillance technology that
was adopted and deployed without any regard for privacy, Fourth
Amendment rights and due process, the rights of the citizenry
were marginalized, undermined and eviscerated.
Precrime became more fact than fiction
Under the pretext of
helping overwhelmed government agencies work more efficiently,
predictive and surveillance technologies were used to classify,
segregate and flag the populace with little concern for privacy
rights or due process.
All of this sorting,
sifting and calculating was done swiftly, secretly and
incessantly with the help of AI technology and a surveillance
state that monitors your every move.
Where this becomes
particularly dangerous is when the government takes preemptive
steps to combat crime or abuse, or whatever the government has
chosen to outlaw at any given time.
government waged psychological warfare on the nation
The government made
clear in word and deed that "we the people" are domestic enemies
to be targeted, tracked, manipulated, micromanaged, surveilled,
viewed as suspects, and treated as if our fundamental rights are
mere privileges that can be easily discarded.
Aided and abetted by
technological advances and scientific experimentation, the
pre-crime and pre-thought campaigns
currencies, social media scores and censorship
confiscation laws put a target on the back of every American
Red flag gun laws
(which authorize government officials to seize guns from
individuals viewed as a danger to themselves or others) gained
traction as a legislative means by which to allow police to
remove guns from people suspected of being threats.
Red flag gun laws
merely push us that much closer towards a suspect society where
everyone is potentially guilty of some crime or another and must
be preemptively rendered harmless.
burden of proof was reversed
Constitution requires the government to provide solid proof of
criminal activity before it can deprive a citizen of life or
liberty, the government turned that fundamental assurance of due
process on its head.
Each and every one of
us is now seen as a potential suspect, terrorist and lawbreaker
in the eyes of the government.
The groundwork has
been laid for a new kind of government where it won't matter if
you're innocent or guilty, whether you're a threat to the
nation, or even if you're a citizen.
What will matter is
what the government - or whoever happens to be calling the shots
at the time - thinks...
And if the
powers-that-be think you're a threat to the nation and should be
locked up, then you'll be locked up with no access to the
protections our Constitution provides.
Supreme Court turned America into a Constitution-free zone
Although the Court's
rulings on qualified immunity for police who engage in official
misconduct were largely overshadowed by its politically
polarizing rulings on abortion, gun ownership and religion, they
were no less devastating.
The bottom line:
there will be no consequences for cops who brutalize the
citizenry and no justice for the victims of police brutality.

list of crimes against the American people ran the gamut from
surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, and
intimidation tactics to,

Deep State went global
We've been inching
closer to a
New World Order for the past
several decades, but
COVID-19, which saw
governmental and corporate interests become even more closely
intertwined, shifted this transformation into high gear.
This New World Order
- a Global World Order - made up of international government
agencies and corporations owes its existence in large part to
the U.S. government's deep-seated and, in many cases, top-secret
alliances with foreign nations and global corporations.
international cabal, let's call it the
Global Deep State, is just as
real as the corporatized, militarized, industrialized
American Deep State, and it
poses just as great a threat to our rights as individuals under
the U.S. Constitution, if not greater.
