Break the Cycle: In 2024, Say No to Government Cruelty, Brutality and Abuse

John & Nisha Whitehead

“The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.”
Edmund Burke

Folks, it’s time to break the cycle of abuses—cruel, brutal, immoral, unconstitutional and unacceptable—that have been heaped upon us by the government for way too long.

Here’s just a small sampling of what we suffered through in 2023.

The government failed to protect our lives, liberty and happiness. The predators of the police state wreaked havoc on our freedoms, our communities, and our lives. The government didn’t listen to the citizenry, refused to abide by the Constitution, and treated the citizenry as a source of funding and little else. Police officers shot unarmed citizens and their household pets. Government agents—including local police—were armed to the teeth and encouraged to act like soldiers on a battlefield. Bloated government agencies were allowed to fleece taxpayers. Government technicians spied on our emails and phone calls. And government contractors made a killing by waging endless wars abroad.

The president became more imperial. Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill. The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whoever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability. The presidency itself has become an imperial one with permanent powers.

The cost of endless wars drove the nation deeper into debt. Policing the globe and waging endless wars abroad hasn’t made America—or the rest of the world—any safer, but it has made the military industrial complex rich at taxpayer expense.

The courts failed to uphold justice. Time and time again, the Supreme Court failed to right the wrongs being meted out by the American police state. A review of critical court rulings over the past decade or so, including some ominous ones by the U.S. Supreme Court, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting the ruling class and government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution.

The Surveillance State rendered Americans vulnerable to threats from government spies, police, hackers and power failures. Thanks to the government’s ongoing efforts to build massive databases using emerging surveillance, DNA and biometrics technologies, Americans became sitting ducks for hackers and government spies alike. Billions of people have been affected by data breaches and cyberattacks. On a daily basis, Americans were made to relinquish the most intimate details of who we are—our biological makeup, our genetic blueprints, and our biometrics (facial characteristics and structure, fingerprints, iris scans, etc.)—in order to navigate an increasingly technologically-enabled world. The Department of Homeland Security, which has led the charge to create a Surveillance State, has continued to deploy mandatory facial recognition scans at airports and gather biometric data on American travelers. Police were gifted with new surveillance gadgets. The Corporate State tapped into our computer keyboards, cameras, cell phones and smart devices in order to better target us for advertising. Social media giants such as Facebook granted secret requests by the government and its agents for access to users’ accounts. And our private data—methodically collected and stored with or without our say-so—was repeatedly compromised and breached.

Mass shootings claimed more lives. Mass shootings have taken place at churches, in nightclubs, on college campuses, on military bases, in elementary schools, in government offices, and at concerts. In almost every instance, you can connect the dots back to the military-industrial complex, which continues to dominate, dictate and shape almost every aspect of our lives.

The rich got richer, and the poor went to jail. Not content to expand the police state’s power to search, strip, seize, raid, steal from, arrest and jail Americans for any infraction, no matter how insignificant, the courts continued their practice of jailing individuals who are unable to pay the hefty fines imposed by the American police state. These debtors’ prisons play right into the hands of those who make a profit by jailing Americans.  This is no longer a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.” It is fast becoming a government “of the rich, by the elite, for the corporations,” and its rise to power is predicated on shackling the American taxpayer to a debtors’ prison guarded by a phalanx of politicians, bureaucrats and militarized police with no hope of parole and no chance for escape.

“Show your papers” incidents skyrocketed. We are not supposed to be living in a “show me your papers” society. Despite this, the U.S. government has introduced measures allowing police and other law enforcement officials to stop individuals (citizens and noncitizens alike), demand they identify themselves, and subject them to patdowns, warrantless searches, and interrogations.

Free speech was dealt one knock-out punch after another. Protest laws, free speech zones, bubble zones, trespass zones, anti-bullying legislation, zero tolerance policies, hate crime laws and a host of other legalistic maladies dreamed up by politicians and prosecutors (and championed by those who want to suppress speech with which they might disagree) conspired to corrode our core freedoms, purportedly for our own good. On paper—at least according to the U.S. Constitution—we are technically free to speak. In reality, however, we were only as free to speak as a government official—or corporate entities such as Facebook, Google or YouTube—allowed. The reasons for such censorship varied widely from political correctness, safety concerns and bullying to national security and hate crimes but the end result remained the same: the complete eradication of free speech.

Police became even more militarized and weaponized. Despite concerns about the government’s steady transformation of local police into a standing military army, local police agencies continued to acquire weaponry, training and equipment suited for the battlefield. There are now reportedly more bureaucratic (non-military) government civilians armed with high-tech, deadly weapons than U.S. Marines.

Schools turned into prisons. So-called school “safety” policies, which run the gamut from zero tolerance policies that punish all infractions harshly to surveillance cameras, metal detectors, random searches, drug-sniffing dogs, school-wide lockdowns, active-shooter drills and militarized police officers, turned schools into prisons and young people into prisoners.

The government waged a renewed war on private property. The battle to protect our private property has become the final constitutional frontier, the last holdout against our freedoms being usurped. We no longer have any real property rights. That house you live in, the car you drive, the small (or not so small) acreage of land that has been passed down through your family or that you scrimped and saved to acquire, whatever money you manage to keep in your bank account after the government and its cronies have taken their first and second and third cut…none of it is safe from the government’s greedy grasp. At no point do you ever have any real ownership in anything other than the clothes on your back. Everything else can be seized by the government under one pretext or another (civil asset forfeiture, unpaid taxes, eminent domain, public interest, etc.).

The plight of the nation’s homeless worsened. In communities across the country, legislators adopted a variety of methods (parking meters, zoning regulations, tickets, and even robots) to discourage the homeless from squatting, loitering and panhandling. One of the most common—and least discussed—practices: homeless relocation programs that bus the homeless outside city limits.

The government waged war on military veterans. The government has done a pitiful job of respecting the freedoms of military veterans and caring for their needs once out of uniform. The plight of veterans today is America’s badge of shame, with large numbers of veterans impoverished, unemployed, traumatized mentally and physically, struggling with depression, suicide, and marital stress, homeless, subjected to sub-par treatment at clinics and hospitals, left to molder while their paperwork piles up within Veterans Administration offices, and increasingly treated like criminals— targeted for surveillance, censorship, threatened with incarceration or involuntary commitment, labeled as extremists and/or mentally ill, and stripped of their Second Amendment rights—for daring to speak out against government misconduct.

The Deep State took over. The American system of representative government was overthrown by the Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad. When in doubt, follow the money trail. It always points the way.

The takeaway: Everything the founders of this country feared has come to dominate in modern America.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, if freedom is to survive at all, “we the people” must refuse to allow the government’s abusive behavior to be our new normal.

There is nothing normal about egregious surveillance, roadside strip searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, censorship, retaliatory arrests, the criminalization of lawful activities, warmongering, indefinite detentions, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, police brutality, profit-driven prisons, or pay-to-play politicians.

Let’s not take the mistakes, carnage, toxicity and abuse of this past year into 2024.

As long as we continue to allow callousness, cruelty, meanness, immorality, ignorance, hatred, intolerance, racism, militarism, materialism, meanness and injustice—magnified by an echo chamber of nasty tweets and government-sanctioned brutality—to trump justice, fairness and equality, there can be no hope of prevailing against the police state.

There’s a link ten paragraphs down in the show me your papers category which takes us to a 2017 article that has a paywall: “show me your papers” society. It was at that point I ceased reading Whitehead’s essay, and instead posted this heads up.

Also, every essay by Whitehead near the last paragraph advertises books by him with links to employee abuser Bezo’s Amazon.

Whitehead reminds me of the woman who gave birth to me who used to say: “Don’t do as I do, do as I say”.

Yeah a cryptographic ‘nonce’ is a random number often generated as part of an authentication security protocol, to stop old packets of data being reused. It helps protect against hackers etc.

It caught me out the first time I saw it too. I’ve seen it phrased ‘nonce check failed’ in the past, which felt less complimentary at the time. 😅 A2

Anarchy only works when 100% of self-contained villages are peaceful. As soon as you get war-like mobs, you need government. Unless you idolise the murdering, thieving rampaging yobs, that is.

Funnily enough, quite a lot of those kinds of yobs tend to rape women when they are looting and pillaging….

So I’m not sure that anarchy would play to female sensitivities particularly…..

There are 8 billion people in the world, with wildly differing interests, aptitudes, dispositions. You might have a small intentional community of “anarchists” but the entirety of the human population of them? Ain’t happening.

The only kind of anarchy that we’re likely to suffer is mob rule, followed by a hard tyranny. It’s a hard truth, but most people do, in fact, need government.

The tyrant has “nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you. Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you? How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you?”

“Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.”

Your government didn’t fail. It revealed its true nature.

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.”
― Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century

To believe that a government could be anything that it is not is to believe in lies. All governments are governments and all states are governed by governments. They are organizations of evil, designed to do evil, and they can’t be anything but evil.

Of course evil, being evil, lies, steals and murders.

Why expect anything good from the Devil?

All good things come from All-Good (God) and all true things come from All-Knowing Truth (God).

That’s all any of us ever need.

And right away I am drowning in shit. It’s not so much the sheer psy-op fuckery of this gender ideology that gets me but contemplation of the gargantuan amounts of dosh and resources that get poured down this insatiable black hole of an utterly manufactured non-issue. Meanwhile help for genuine medical emergencies are being sidelined.

I was recently fed this in my twitter “For You” column:

https://twitter.com/EitanChitayat/status/1740004466856968573

Pat Condell has always been one of my bête noires. It would be hard to think of a more glaring example of the fool who doth thinks he is wise. And on looking over his Wiki entry I note that he had one hell of an upbringing and life. And that he has been one hell of a trier and workaholic. But it also seems from the critical reaction (which admittedly is not infallible) that he was, to put it mildly, unsubtle.
 
So the feeling I get is that this was a guy consumed by (justified) rage but without much talent to shape it. And so it was no surprise when he gratefully hopped on the “atheist express” bandwagon after 9/11 presented an excellent opportunity for ranters willing to play to the new script demanded by the parasite class. Though, to be fair, there appears to have been a lull between that huge elaborate “bin Laden” pantomime and Condell’s assemblage of video sermons. Nevertheless, this was a whole new career for him – especially when “professional atheist” Richard Dawkins provided a channel on his own site for Condell’s raving output.

Naturally the resurgence of this “war on terror” meme via “Hamas’s new 9/11” provides the Condell Man with a new avenue.

Well, if that’s what you Americans want, you all have one single priority in 2024:

Don’t vote Republican or Democrat, deregister from either party in your droves and elect independents to your more local/regional centres of governance who don’t answer to Wall Street, don’t answer to oligarchic banking families and don’t answer to Israel.

You have to overtly reject the concept that the USA answers to Israel in any way, shape or form. You have to confront every ‘representative’ that takes money from Israelis sources and you have to refuse to vote for them.

You have to refuse to vote in elections using ‘machines’, as they are corrupted pieces of election fiddling apparatus that won’t record your vote truthfully. You need to demand a return to paper-based ballots.

You need to stop shopping in the big supermarkets and buy from small independent traders. Keep the money in your local communities and stop it all being siphoned off to Wall Street.

You need to demand an 80% cut in the Defence Budget and you need to stop financing overseas military bases. You don’t make international friends at the barrel of a gun, you do that by helping them to help themselves.

You need to all resist mandatory vaccinations of any kind. If you choose to take an individual vaccination, fine. But never comply with orders. Ever.

If I were you, I would bring court cases calling for Joe Biden to be banned from standing for President in 2024, citing decades of corruption, grifting etc.

You won’t get anywhere if you think your only choice is between Republicans and Democrats. That’s no choice whatsoever, it’s the Uniparty wearing different masks.

So long as you all think that America is a fundamentally decent place, you won’t be able to confront the evil that controls you all. Your country is awash with criminal evil in high places. And the whole world knows it and has been telling you so for decades.

Only you, the American people, can change that. No foreign nation is going to invade you, crush you and then order you about. The cost is too great and the reward too little.

But the rate at which you lose friends and allies is only going to increase if you keep up your nonsensical tolerance of your defence budget, your subservience to Israel and your criminals organising global crises decade after decade.

By 2040, you will be entirely alone, utterly rejected by the vast majority of the world.

And all because some little country in the Middle East treats you like a submissive wimp and whips your collective asses every time she dresses up as a madam dominatrix.

It’s time to understand the concept of Entropy which is really a measure of disorder. With the concept of entropy in mind it should be apparent that many countries of the world, eg the US, Britain, France, et al are in an advanced state of entropy or disorder. The state of entropy can be offset by applying energy to reverse the disorder. I don’t think this will happen. We are too far gone and our leaders are literally Hell bent on helping us get there. On a DIY level, corrosion or oxidation which is a manifestation of entropy can be offset by applying rust remover, then applying a good paint to keep the corrosion at bay. But eventually the corrosion returns and entropy takes over. Our civilisation is beyond rust remover and paint. Get ready for tougher times. Much tougher times. As part of the lyrics of a once well known Credence Clearwater Revival song goes:
“Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye”

A stirring call for action. J’accuse!

I fear the finger is pointing in the wrong direction: at the criminal U$ government but not at the Anglo Zio Capitalists who own that government. The word “Government” occurs 30 times; the word “Rich” 4 times; but no mention of Banksters Financiers Oligarchs or Plutocrats.

With such a blinkered diagnosis I fear the proposed remedy will be more of the same Liberal Economics.

Fifty years ago I met a real Redneck Yank in Illinois. He was proud of the land: fertile soil six feet deep, and underneath it was coal and oil. He regularly attended local election meetings. He was a good, honest, productive man. But Illinois today ranks high in corruption among the corrupt States of the corrupt United States.

Yes, the US government is evil but in the US we have to admit that we still had the good life with one of the highest standards of living in the world and lots of bread and circuses to entertain and distract us. So our comeuppance is coming soon.

In the US, we had the Brave New World of tyranny where the masses love their enslavement vs. the “1984” model of communism. So truth be told, we are complicit in our corrupt government and didn’t want to know the truth.

As true today as it was a century ago when Mencken castigated, as fresh as in today’s news, the Con-men and the superstitious yokels who fell for their pious chicanery a century ago. Mencken was brilliant but he had no remedy, and when a remedy arrived in the form of The New Deal, Mencken failed to recognise it and was left behind as a grumpy old man who continued to grump as though Roosevelt were still Wilson.

Unfortunately, as long as the masses have enough food, enough shelter and enough facile distractions to keep them amused and passive, they won’t really give a shit about government overreach or anything else, and will keep sleep-walking their way to destruction with their fingers in their ears. Sad but true.

Indeed sad but true Joshie. In fact your comment brought to my mind scenes from Predator Prey documentaries that involve the dramatic “chase” as the fleeing herd runs hither and thither pursued by a relentless killer(s), until, finally, a victim is brought down, and immediately torn to pieces, as those who expect a share of the spoil begin to gather nearby, jackals and vultures etc. Meanwhile, the rest of the flock, realising there is no longer a threat to them, the predators hunger now being temporarily satiated, returns to grazing, peacefully. Not many ever stop, band together and make a collective stand against those with predatory intent. It appears we humans are not too much different.

Notice They are not also calling for getting rid of those

Is that because that would end The Sport of Kings
thus, would upset Their Rich Friends ?
Or, will the gee-gee be needed as the chief ode of transport

It’s because the global population of horses is only about 60 million, while the global population of cows is close to a billion. So it’s the cows that have to go, because they’re extremely dangerous animals, and a threat to all life.

Indeed Les, a great point that illustrates the prominence of “the Turf” in the upper societal echelons. Following lockdown in 2020, Horse Racing here in the UK was resumed very quickly, above all other sports. Interestingly coincidental Dido Harding, entrusted with £37 billion to spend on t&t was an ex-jockey and her hubby is the chairman of the sport’s governing body the Jockey Club and Mass Murdering Midazolam Matt was also a jockey at one time before moving into politics.

Continues to astonish that Whitehead has neither the poison death shots since 2020 incl. the Kissinger Report of 1974 nor the Rockefeller one of 2010 on his radar. Ed Dowd or Norman Fenton or Karen Kingston are unknown to him.

Nor does he even mention pending digital ID or CBDCs, in USA known as “Biden Bucks” as crucial to what he rightly opposes.

Let alone the IEEE and the WBAN, Wireless Body Area Network, Dr Mihalcea and La Quinta Columna. And that the Pfizer jabs contain graphene as part of the hydrogel, according to a Pfizer doc.

Now he might say, I am a lawyer, not an electrical engineer. But biosensors apparently date from 1956.

His statement “The government failed to protect our lives, liberty and happiness” is a major under-statement. Governments in general actively coerced the public into accepting the killer jab. Those who drop dead from turbo cancer, “heard disease”, etc. may be relatively fortunate compared to those crippled mentally or physically. And we have not even come around to the collapse of reproduction.

One thing to remember is that if you want to break free from the government and take the path of anarchy (which simply means the absence of hierarchy or a horizontal transactional arrangement or a lack of arrangement per se, as opposed to chaos, a state wrongly and malevolently ascribed to anarchy by hierarchical motherfuckers intent on preserving the top-down vertical control structure), you need to avoid one thing.

Namely, you need to avoid supplicating the government to acknowledge your efforts. For example, you shouldn’t turn to the government’s court’s to rule in your favor, invoke stuff like constitutions, laws, and shit like that.

You need to live your life. If somebody wants to have government, their prerogative. You don’t. Hence, fuck the government. Don’t acknowledge their jurisdiction over you. They got shit. You were born to this world, free as a bird, and you have the right to roam and enjoy its fruits just like the next motherfucker.

I see too many good people around me who waste time in arguing with the government, vainly trying to make them fucks acknowledge your freedom. They never will. Get your head around that.

Governments have always known they can get away with murder (Literally)

They have always also known that they can steal your money and freedom at the same time.

We just never noticed.

The new twist is that the internet has allowed us the window through which to view their crimes.

The thing is, they don’t care.

They know the odds are stacked on their side.

I’ve been reading boilerplate essays like this for years which are fraught with false assumptions and yearnings for an America that never was.

This is false history.

The government is not now nor ever has been interested in protecting citizens and all the rest- they have always existed to protect the interests of the ruling class. The government is the executive committee of the monied cartels.

This has been the case for the entirety of the existence of USA Inc. no matter if you want to hold on to the fairy tale of some noble founding fathers who were in reality a bunch of venal mercantilists and competing merchants.

If you think the Consitution is some hallowed document meant to enshrine protections for the masses you are hopeless- that is decidedly not how it was designed.

It also must be understood that private property is a huge part of the problem- as distinct from personal property- and that the Consitution was designed to protect private property for those “allowed” to have it should’ve been the first clue.

Yep. Constitutionalists drank too much Kool aid. To the normal people, it didn’t matter whether the revolution succeeded or not. The revolution only helped the local oligarchs.

The rights they claim we have were always denied. Some were not counted as “men”.

Heck, even the 14 amendment they used against Trump says that they could deny an insurrectionist the right to run for office. What crazy shit is that? Wasn’t George Washington an insurrectionist? Anyway if the guy was a bad guy for insurrection, people wouldn’t vote for him in the first place.
But no, let’s make more stupid laws.

I’m super sick of how social media censorship is legal, unless the govt directly requests it. So guess what morons, they’ll just hide the requests. But it’s ok for Twitter etc to do it cause “private company”. Fuck that private ownership mantra.

”Property is theft. Slavery is murder.” (P-J Proudhon)

”THE first man who, having enclosed a piece of ground, bethought himself of saying This is mine, and found people simple enough to believe him, was the real founder of civil society. From how many crimes, wars and murders, from how many horrors and misfortunes might not any one have saved mankind, by pulling up the stakes, or filling up the ditch, and crying to his fellows, “Beware of listening to this impostor; you are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody.” ” (J-J Rousseau: Discourse on the Origin and Basis of Inequality Among Men)

If the land, the earth, is privately owned, it is stolen by that one man from everyone else, and everyone else is made a slave for that one owner.

There IS an awareness; an awareness of a potential reckonong; one that could be likened to a line in the sand that most constitutional republic patriots are watching. The hope is that our elected representatives at the local, state and federal levels are monitoring these threats, concerns or fears of the citizens.. If these representatives do not honor their oaths and serve and protecr America and its traditions from the domestic enemies that seek to eliminate a vast majority of American citizens and create a large servitude class, then those constitutitonal republic patriots will have no choice but to serve notice and correct the very wrongs discussed in this article. Americans MUST be alert, dilif]gent, and AWARE: The following is from the The Secret Speech of General Chi HaotianIf you get on the website using key words to search, you will find out that a while ago comrade He Xin pointed out to the Hong Kong Business News during an interview that: “The U.S. has a shocking conspiracy.” According to what he had in hand, from September 27 to October 1, 1995, the Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev Foundation, funded by the United States, gathered 500 of the world’s most important statesmen, economic leaders and scientists, including George W. Bush (he was not the U.S. president at the time), the Baroness Thatcher, Tony Blair, Zbigniew Brzezinski, as well as George Soros, Bill Gates, futurist John Naisbitt, etc., all of the world’s most popular characters, in the San Francisco Fairmont hotel for a high-level roundtable conference, discussing problems about globalization and how to guide humanity to move forward into the 21st century. According to what He Xin had in hand, the outstanding people of the world in attendance thought that in the 21st century a mere 20 percent of the world’s population will be sufficient to maintain the world’s economy and prosperity, the other 80 percent or 4/5ths of the world’s population will be human garbage unable to produce new values. The people in attendance thought that this excess 80 percent population would be a trash population and “high-tech” means should be used to eliminate them gradually.” America is slowly being exterminated. Your article is but a tip of the 1%’s genocidal iceberg.
