“What country can preserve its liberties
if their rulers are not warned from time to
time that their people preserve the spirit
of resistance?”—Thomas Jefferson

-- The government is
goosestepping all over our freedoms.
Case in point: America’s founders did not
want a military government ruled by force.
Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the
rule of law: the U.S. Constitution.
Yet sometime over the course of the past
240-plus years that constitutional republic has
been transformed into a military dictatorship
disguised as a democracy.
Most Americans seem relatively untroubled by
this state of martial law.
Incredibly, when President Biden
bragged about how the average citizen
doesn’t stand a chance against the government’s
massive arsenal of militarized firepower, it
barely caused a ripple.
As Biden remarked at a fundraising event in
California, “I love these guys who say the
Second Amendment is—you know, the tree of
liberty is water with the blood of patriots.
Well, if [you] want to do that, you want to work
against the government,
you need an F-16. You need something else
than just an AR-15.”
The message being sent to the citizenry is
clear: there is no place in our nation today for
the kind of revolution our forefathers mounted
against a tyrannical government.
For that matter, the government has declared
an all-out war on any resistance
whatsoever by the citizenry to its mandates,
power grabs and abuses.
Are You Tired Of
The Lies And
By this standard, had the Declaration of
Independence been written today, it would have
rendered its signers extremists or terrorists,
resulting in them being placed on a government
watch list, targeted for surveillance of their
activities and correspondence, and potentially
arrested, held indefinitely, stripped of their
rights and labeled enemy combatants.
This is no longer the stuff of speculation
For years, the government has been warning
dangers of domestic terrorism, erecting
surveillance systems to monitor its own
classification systems to label any
viewpoints that challenge the status quo as
training law enforcement agencies to equate
anyone possessing anti-government views as a
2008 Army War College report revealed that
“widespread civil violence inside the United
States would force the defense establishment to
reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic
domestic order and human security.” The 44-page
report goes on to warn that potential causes for
such civil unrest could include another
terrorist attack, “unforeseen economic collapse,
loss of functioning political and legal order,
purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency,
pervasive public health emergencies, and
catastrophic natural and human disasters.”
Subsequent reports by the Department of
Homeland Security to identify, monitor and label
right-wing and left-wing activists and military
veterans as extremists (a.k.a. terrorists)
have manifested into full-fledged pre-crime
surveillance programs. Almost a decade later,
after locking down the nation and spending
billions to fight terrorism, the DHS concluded
greater threat is not ISIS but domestic
Rounding out this profit-driven campaign to
turn American citizens into enemy combatants
(and America into a battlefield) is a technology
sector that is colluding with the government to
create a Big Brother that is
all-knowing, all-seeing and inescapable.
It’s not just the drones,
fusion centers, license plate readers,
stingray devices and the NSA that you have to
worry about. You’re also being tracked by the
black boxes in your cars, your cell phone,
smart devices in your home, grocery loyalty
cards, social media accounts, credit cards,
streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and
e-book reader accounts.
The events of recent years have all been part
of a master plan to shut us up and preemptively
shut us down: by making peaceful revolution
impossible and violent revolution inevitable.
The powers-that-be want an excuse to lockdown
the nation and throw the switch to all-out
This is how it begins.
As John Lennon warned, “When it gets down to
having to use violence, then you are playing the
system’s game. The establishment will irritate
you—pull your beard, flick your face—to make you
fight. Because once they’ve got you violent,
then they know how to handle you.”
Already, discontent is growing.
According to a USA TODAY/Suffolk
7 out of 10 Americans believe that American
democracy is “imperiled.”
Americans are worried about the state of
their country, afraid of an increasingly violent
and oppressive federal government, and tired of
being treated like suspects and criminals.
What we’ll see more of before long is a
growing dissatisfaction with the government and
its heavy-handed tactics by people who are tired
of being used and abused and are ready to say
“enough is enough.”
This is what happens when a parasitical
government muzzles the citizenry, fences them
in, herds them, brands them, whips them into
submission, forces them to ante up the sweat of
their brows while giving them little in return,
and then provides them with little to no outlet
for voicing their discontent.
Our backs are against the proverbial wall.
We’ve been losing our freedoms so
incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name
of national security and global peace,
maintained by way of martial law disguised as
law and order, and enforced by a standing army
of militarized police and a political elite
determined to maintain their powers at all
costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it
all started going downhill, but we’ve been on
that fast-moving, downward trajectory for some
When the government views itself as superior
to the citizenry, when it no longer operates for
the benefit of the people, when the people are
no longer able to peacefully reform their
government, when government officials cease to
act like public servants, when elected officials
no longer represent the will of the people, when
the government routinely violates the rights of
the people and perpetrates more violence against
the citizenry than the criminal class, when
government spending is unaccountable and
unaccounted for, when the judiciary act as
courts of order rather than justice, and when
the government is no longer bound by the laws of
the Constitution, then you no longer have a
government “of the people, by the people and for
There is something being concocted in the
dens of power, far beyond the public eye, and it
doesn’t bode well for the future of this
Anytime you have an entire nation so
mesmerized by political theater and public
spectacle that they are oblivious to all else,
you’d better beware.
Anytime you have a government that operates
in the shadows, speaks in a language of force,
and rules by fiat, you’d better beware.
And anytime you have a government so far
removed from its people as to ensure that they
are never seen, heard or heeded by those elected
to represent them, you’d better beware.
The architects of the police state have us
exactly where they want us: under their stamping
boot, gasping for breath, desperate for freedom,
grappling for some semblance of a future that
does not resemble the totalitarian prison being
erected around us.
The government and its cohorts have conspired
to ensure that the only real recourse the
American people have to express their
displeasure with the government is through
voting, yet that is no real recourse at all.
Yet as I make clear in my book
Battlefield America: The War on the American
People and in its fictional counterpart
The Erik Blair Diaries, what is
unfolding before us is not a revolution. This is
We are at our most vulnerable right now.
