Electing the Next Dictator: Ugly Truths You Won’t Hear from Trump or Biden

John & Nisha Whitehead

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
George Orwell

No matter what carefully crafted sound bites and political spin get trotted out by Joe Biden and Donald Trump in advance of the 2024 presidential election, you can rest assured that none of the problems that continue to undermine our freedoms will be addressed in any credible, helpful way by either candidate, despite the dire state of our nation.

Certainly not if doing so might jeopardize their standing with the unions, corporations or the moneyed elite bankrolling their campaigns.

Indeed, the 2024 elections will not do much to alter our present course towards a police state.

Nor will the popularity contest for the new occupant of the White House significantly alter the day-to-day life of the average American greatly at all. Those life-changing decisions are made elsewhere, by nameless, unelected government officials who have turned bureaucracy into a full-time and profitable business.

In the interest of liberty and truth, here are a few uncomfortable truths about life in the American police state that we will not be hearing from either of the two leading presidential candidates.

1. The government is not our friend. Nor does it work for “we the people.” Our so-called government representatives do not actually represent us, the citizenry. We are now ruled by an oligarchic elite of governmental and corporate interests whose main interest is in perpetuating power and control.

2. By gradually whittling away at our freedoms—free speech, assembly, due process, privacy, etc.—the government has, in effect, liberated itself from its contractual agreement to respect our constitutional rights while resetting the calendar back to a time when we had no Bill of Rights to protect us from the long arm of the government.

3. Republicans and Democrats like to act as if there’s a huge difference between them and their policies. However, they are not sworn enemies so much as they are partners in crime, united in a common goal, which is to maintain the status quo.

4. Presidential elections merely serve to maintain the status quo. Once elected president, that person becomes part of the dictatorial continuum that is the American imperial presidency today.

5. The U.S. government is spending money it doesn’t have on foreign aid programs it can’t afford, all the while the national debt continues to grow, our domestic infrastructure continues to deteriorate, and our borders continue to be breached. What is going on? It’s obvious that a corporatized, militarized, entrenched global bureaucracy is running the country.

6. Forty years past the time that George Orwell envisioned the stomping boot of Big Brother, the police state is about to pass off the baton to the surveillance state. 1984 has become an operation manual for the omnipresent, modern-day surveillance state. For all intents and purposes, we now have a fourth branch of government.

This fourth branch came into being without any electoral mandate or constitutional referendum, and yet it possesses superpowers, above and beyond those of any other government agency save the military. It is all-knowing, all-seeing and all-powerful. It operates beyond the reach of the president, Congress and the courts, and it marches in lockstep with the corporate elite who really call the shots in Washington, DC. The government’s “technotyranny” surveillance apparatus has become so entrenched and entangled with its police state apparatus that it’s hard to know anymore where law enforcement ends and surveillance begins. They have become one and the same entity.

7. When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime, you are being ruled by criminals. In the current governmental climate, obeying one’s conscience and speaking truth to the power of the police state can easily render you an “enemy of the state.” The government’s list of so-called “enemies of the state” is growing by the day. What we are dealing with is a government so power-hungry, paranoid and afraid of losing its stranglehold on power that it is conspiring to wage war on anyone who dares to challenge its authority.

8. If voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it. Americans only think they’re choosing the next president. In truth, however, they’re engaging in the illusion of participation culminating in the reassurance ritual of voting. It’s just another manufactured illusion conjured up in order to keep the populace compliant and convinced that their vote counts and that they still have some influence over the political process.

9. More than terrorism, more than domestic extremism, more than gun violence and organized crime, the U.S. government has become a greater menace to the life, liberty and property of its citizens than any of the so-called dangers from which the government claims to protect us.

10. The government knows exactly which buttons to push in order to manipulate the populace and gain the public’s cooperation and compliance. This draconian exercise in how to divide, conquer and subdue a nation is succeeding. This is how you use the politics of fear to persuade a freedom-endowed people to shackle themselves to a dictatorship.

11. The government long ago sold us out to the highest bidder. The highest bidder, by the way, has always been the Deep State. America’s shadow government—which is comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes right now and operates beyond the reach of the Constitution with no real accountability to the citizenry—is the real reason why “we the people” have no control over our government.

12. Every U.S. citizen is now guilty until proven innocent.

13. “We the people” are no longer shielded by the rule of law. While the First Amendment—which gives us a voice—is being muzzled, the Fourth Amendment—which protects us from being bullied, badgered, beaten, broken and spied on by government agents—is being disemboweled.

14. Privacy, as we have known it, is dead. Every second of every day, the American people are being spied on by the U.S. government’s vast network of digital Peeping Toms, electronic eavesdroppers and robotic snoops. Government eyes are watching you. They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet. Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to form a picture of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line. Beware of what you say, what you read, what you write, where you go, and with whom you communicate, because it will all be recorded, stored and used against you eventually, at a time and place of the government’s choosing.

15. Private property means nothing if the government can take your home, car or money under the flimsiest of pretexts, whether it be asset forfeiture schemes, eminent domain or overdue property taxes. Likewise, private property means little at a time when SWAT teams and other government agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, wound or kill you, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family.

16. If there is an absolute maxim by which the federal government seems to operate, it is that the American taxpayer always gets ripped off. The government’s schemes to swindle, cheat, scam, and generally defraud taxpayers of their hard-earned dollars have run the gamut from wasteful pork barrel legislation, cronyism and graft to asset forfeiture, costly stimulus packages, and a national security complex that continues to undermine our freedoms while failing to making us any safer.

Americans have also been made to pay through the nose for the government’s endless wars, subsidization of foreign nations, military empire, welfare state, roads to nowhere, bloated workforce, secret agencies, fusion centers, private prisons, biometric databases, invasive technologies, arsenal of weapons, and every other budgetary line item that is contributing to the fast-growing wealth of the corporate elite at the expense of those who are barely making ends meet—that is, we the taxpayers.

17. From the moment they are born to the time they legally come of age, young people are now wards of the state. Parents no longer have the final say over what their kids are taught, how they are disciplined, or what kinds of medical care they need.

18. All you need to do in order to be flagged as a suspicious character, labeled an enemy of the state and locked up like a dangerous criminal is use certain trigger words, surf the internet, communicate using a cell phone, drive a car, stay at a hotel, purchase materials at a hardware store, take flying or boating lessons, appear suspicious, question government authority, or generally live in the United States.

19. The government is pushing us ever closer to a constitutional crisis.

20. Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—continue to be choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation. Forced cavity searches, forced colonoscopies, forced blood draws, forced breath-alcohol tests, forced DNA extractions, forced eye scans, and forced inclusion in biometric databases are just a few ways in which Americans continue to be reminded that we have no control over what happens to our bodies during an encounter with government officials.

These are not problems that can be glibly dismissed with a few well-chosen words, as most politicians are inclined to do.

No matter which candidate wins this election, the citizenry and those who represent us need to own up to the fact that there can be no police state—no tyranny—no routine violations of our rights without our complicity and collusion—without our turning a blind eye, shrugging our shoulders, allowing ourselves to be distracted and our civic awareness diluted.

Likewise, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, these problems will continue to plague our nation unless and until Americans wake up to the fact that we’re the only ones who can change things for the better and then do something about it. After all, the Constitution opens with those three vital words, “We the people.”

There is no government without us—our sheer numbers, our muscle, our economy, our physical presence in this land.

We are the government.

CNN:

“Germany to give Holocaust survivors $236 payout to help them cope with October 7 attacks
…..
“Many Holocaust survivors were hit particularly hard by the Hamas attacks, whether through the loss of their homes, support systems in the form of care,” a German finance ministry spokeswoman said.”

It’s amazing how these Holocaust survivors keep popping up even though they must be pushing their centenary now. (And I’m sure they’ll have many more centenaries too.)

And of course, since Oct 7 is the entire story of WW2 concentrated into a few hours, it is essential for us all to cough up as much money as possible whilst we all weep again and again.

Also from the CNN report:

“German politicians have repeatedly stated that Israel’s security is Germany’s “reason of state” – the term is a reference to Germany’s special relationship with Israel due to the Holocaust, in which Germany systematically murdered 6 million Jews under Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime.”

Germany’s “special relationship with Israel” I.e. a blank cheque from Germany to atone for the glamorously presented and eternal suffering of Israel.

“Holocaust survivors to use AI to ‘future-proof’ their stories for UK schools

Testimony 360 project allows pupils to talk to AI versions of survivors and take virtual tours of concentration camps

A groundbreaking educational programme will launch in UK schools later this month using artificial intelligence and virtual reality to “future-proof” the testimonies of Holocaust survivors.

The Holocaust Educational Trust, a London-based charity, will launch its Testimony 360 programme across schools in the UK, allowing pupils to have lifelike, face-to-face conversations with Holocaust survivors through innovative technology.”

The Holocaust fairytale gets reinvigorated. Jews have profitted so massively off this one story that it seems inevitable that the fable will continue forever – for the Jews, not for the others that really were in the camps.

Of course, the validity of the story is not allowed to be questioned, it is now classified as hate speech, as is all real research and science these days.

If they were young children at the time they could still be alive and suffering today!!!!!

I survived the Holocaust in 1943-45 when I was 25 years old.

When I saw today Hamas massacring 66 Israeli civilians 6 times within Israel’s borders, I knew immediately what was going on.
A dagger in my heart, and only $236 for all the suffering I have been through daily in 80 years.

I skimmed through this article thinking more and more how sad the characters who wrote this piece must be. I then skimmed through the comments and felt ditto – if there were any positive thoughts about the future, then I didn’t have the energy to look for them. Why don’t you all choose the method of your departure as you appear to have given up hope? I’m an optimist but also a realist – if you hadn’t noticed which way this pantomime is heading, then you ain’t looking. The rats are cornered and, although they will attempt to create mayhem before their complete demise and no doubt will scare the pants off many and do away with many, they will not succeed in the long run.

“The perfect dictatorship would have the appearance of a democracy, but would basically be a prison without walls in which the prisoners would not even dream of escaping. It would essentially be a system of slavery operated through consumption and entertainment.”

Huxley’s analysis was quite prescient, as this is the state of affairs, or rather the state of erosion that we’re currently witnessing.

How many millions willingly volunteered to be injected with an experimental toxin. How wany millions cheer on imperialist wars and never connect the dots seeing that trillions are being confiscated by criminals within the military industrial complex. How many silly-Nillies sent in their DNA and paid to have it analyzed by 23ANDMe, a security state operation.

And most importantly, how many are still mesmerized by the presidential elections hoping to vote in a “savior” only to later learn it was just another BS scam.😵‍💫

Many were coerced because sadly it became mandated in the US by “Genocide Joe” who said during his 2020 campaign that he’d never mandate Mr. Warpspeed’s toxin.

However, if you recall millions eagerly volunteered to be injected. This occurred soon after Mr. Creepy was installed and the experimental concoction became more socially acceptable.

Amazing, how a new figurehead can advance a fascist DOD agenda with the help of mainstream media news presstitutes.

Sadly we the people are not the government, that is not the way this system was designed and set up. Even though over the years more people have been allowed to “participate” our participation really doesn’t mean much; it is a sham. A small oligarchy controls everything and soon they will own everything; what they don’t own outright they can and will take anytime they desire. The system is stacked against the common folk and unless you are a member of the privileged oligarchy you are subject to whim of the police surveillance state. We are little more than serfs and peons and soon we will be lower than that.

I totally agree with your big picture view including the ‘messianic age’ comments It has been my opinion for some time that this religious element is about to be scripted into our reality. It seems though a lot of people cannot get their heads around the possibility. I have spent a fair amount of time researching the Moshiach era. Just reading Chabad’s own website material explains the beliefs and it is relativly easy to extrapolate and even to figure out how who will likely play those roles. With regard to the general elections, I totally understand where you are coming from in terms of tactical voting. Although, without significant support for independents it will be to no avail. However, I feel the greatest opportunity to use the power of the vote is at the local level. Voting for independents locally really could upset the apple cart. The local councils have… Read more »

Why author thinks that those rights have ever been worth anything. If at all they were from day one applied selectively and by that violated fundamental principle of any law (non apartheid law) namely equality, equity and equal protection under the law. If thief, murderer is rewarded while innocent are punished law ceases to exist for all, so cease all protections under the law and raw power emerges from veil of legality. Moreover, laws imposed by power are never just or fair as they are biased toward interests of power alone with no real input from society and hence violate principle of equity under the law . The so called rights bestowed upon people by power are nothing but temporary privileges aimed at creating legitimizing impression of autocratic rule and are immediately ignored or rescinded if exercising such privileges infringe upon even minute interests of power. Elections don’t infringe on… Read more »

On the whole I’d say that this list is correct, it fails only because it talks in terms of absolutism — everything is either 100% good or 100% bad — rather than this being a battle that’s been fought from time immemorial. The temptation is to just shrug and say that you can’t do anything or, worse, encourage this in a final act of self-immolation. The cornerstones of the current battle (in the US) are Presidential Immunity and Schedule ‘F’. One gives an individual absolute power, the other then allows that power to be expressed by complete control of the administrative apparatus of state. Currently the administrative apparatus is constrained by its oath to uphold the Constitution (so its a behavior is determined by its interpretation), once the Schedule ‘F’ changes are made the administrative apparatus will then be a tool of the President. We’re already experiencing the dark tendency… Read more »

The Heritage Foundation has a list of 8000 Republican deep loyalist
from whom Trump can select to stamp his will on The Bureaucracy,
should he aggressively implement Schedule F, one of his initiatives last
time around. (I read ‘the left’ in the US public service really worry
about its implementation.) Then there’s the recent Supreme Court
Chevron decision that’s (over time) gonna curb the powers of the
Bureaucrats…
On the one hand Trump’s appointees have to implement Trump’s
policies for smaller government, while on the other their powers are
whittled away.
As Administrators and Bureaucrats NEVER give up any of the powers
they’ve accrued, i’m wondering how they’ll work around the
contradicting requirements…

Based on historical precedent I’d say that powers that are used against people will be increased while powers that would be used to control corporations reduced. A lot of effort would be focused on finding ways to bring errant (“Blue”) states to heel, potentially tricky because they generate most of the revenue the government needs to work with, but with the aid of a compliant — no, activist — judiciary this may just be a matter of finding the right formulae.

The whole thing is starting to have an unreal, Peronist, feel to it.

I only just stumbled on this but it’s a beaut:

“Civic Virtue” “Common Interest” “Public Interest” – terms that crop up in posts a lot lately… “Who represents The Public Interest ?” Alice asked Humpty Dumpty…”Whoever has the Guns Decides”, said Mousey Tung… In Russia, Putin has declared it’s Unpatriotic for young women to decide not to have babies – such women are going to be publicly shamed. He could have said ‘young women remaining childless is not in The Public Interest’ , though it’s quite clear he believes young women’s bodies are the Property of the State… The flavour of some posts of late is that of incipient fascism. While reading Charles Hugh Smith’s post the thought “fascism” nudged me for attention – which segued into an image of a panel of Old Men, applying Sharia, though calling it ‘Civic virtue’… And then, reading Simplicius’ Dark Futura post caused me to wonder why the ‘breakdown’ of Sexual Morality is… Read more »

*Without typos, this time, hopefully!* Trump along with Putin are the puppets placed on the grand chess board to try to usher-in the WW3/Moshiach era, I’m sure quite a few people have realised that by now. Re: Elections in the UK (and beyond). Probably best to remind ourselves again that there is a big picture we should be looking at and that it is a matter of timing. Almost all of us know that all mainstream parties are tools for the global establishment and we can see that the Tory puppets are planning to purposely lose the election. It was always planned that the Tories would hand over the reins to trilateral-commission-tool Starmer at the right moment for tptb – he has been for a long time bookmarked to be the puppet that ushers in the totalitarian era.

Take a closer look at Trump and question more?

E.g. Who are his main advisers? Who does he continually associate with. What were his action during his stint in office? Look into his background – he was bankrupted more than twice: who bailed him out? Look into the background of his son-in-law: what orgs is he a high-ranking member of, etc? Is Trump a genuine Christian? Is Trump a real patriot? What were his actions during the plandemic: did he promote the jabs (hint operation warp speed) for instance? Was there a more covert reason he declared Jerusalem officially the capital (when many other presidents refused to do this)?

If you research deeper you will see he is the opposite of what the MSM want the general public to believe he is.

LOL The notion of a periodic “saviour” goes back a long way with the Js – at least to the religious centralisations of Hezekiah and Josiah in the 7th century BC – but then, as a marginal people the Js were forever in the thrall of great empires.The birth of Judaism – following the collapse of the northern kingdom of Israel – enshrined the myths of Moses, Joshua, David and Solomon as sacred race heroes. But the theocrats had hardly begun their fantasizing when they were overtaken by events. During the 6th century BC the priestly elite found itself exiled in Babylon. A generation later, with the Persian overthrow of the Babylonians, the die was cast again. Now the “saviour” of the Js was a Persian king, Cyrus the Great, whose imperial designs were served by a theocratic colony in Judah“The Anointed Shepherd”Ever-adaptable, the grateful priestly scribblers bestowed surprising epithets… Read more »

The “Zadokites” that are mentioned here are the “Zaddikim” which is probably closer to the Hebrew name, and they were the Taliban of their time and the originators of the doctrines that rule the world today. Essenes – “Righteous Teacher, Son of Man”Now displaced and threatened by the Hashmon family a disillusioned faction of the Zadokites fled for safety to the wilderness (a region adjoining the Dead Sea known as ‘Damascus’). Retrenchment in the desert had its scriptural antecedents. Isaiah himself had directed “Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” (40.3).In this pitiless environment the sharing of property and ‘mutual love’ were necessary elements of survival and became part of a code of religious honour. Initially at ‘Damascus’, then throughout Judaea, and later through successors in Jish enclaves of the diaspora, these purists or ‘fundamentalists’ established hierarchically organized fraternities, fanatical,… Read more »

Each and every time I leave a comment it goes into pending and I seldom say anything about or name those folk you mention. The main effect it has on me is that I now often write out a comment then delete it before posting thinking it’ll go into pending and I’ll probably forget where it was by the time it goes out and so I don’t bother. I made a comment to admin Sam a couple of weeks ago about the pending thing and I either couldn’t find it again or it was completely disappeared. Who knows, who cares……. 😎

I’d say that you’re missing the point. Starmer’s a problem precisely because he’s the ‘safe’ option to lead the Labour party. He arrived after the Labour party was ripped to pieces by a carefully orchestrated campaign around its policies towards Israel, painting the then leadership as anti-semitic. Corbyn’s resignation was also accompanied by a Labour purgre, primarily of its leadership because it needs a modicum of grass roots support to maintain an electoral presence. This type of thing isn’t new. Anyone familiar with the 1980s ‘unelectable’ Labour party, the one that gave rise to the Social Democrats through a split of ‘moderates’, would know how this worked. (This, in turn, gave rise to ‘New Labour’ and consequently Blair.) Its a process that works time after time because the media is pretty much totally in the pocket of the City and the electorate are either very gullible or have extremely short… Read more »

I appreciate what the Whiteheads are articulating, however, this article is pretty much a rehash of their previous articles with an electoral theme laid on top. I am getting a Groundhog Day vibe. I think it is safe to assume most people reading the article are broadly in agreement. Plus, this is now third article in a row at OffG regarding the US (s)election and there is still another four months to go. Have the Whiteheads ever offered any solutions to the encroaching police state? If not, then perhaps it is time to change the theme or find new audiences who are not yet aware of the severity of the problem. I don’t know about everyone else but am much more interested in hearing practical solutions, whatever they maybe. Even just brainstorming.

I don’t see any “practical solutions” to the primary issues being offered in other articles at this site, other than Corbett telling people how to grow better tomatoes. Most articles are the same as this, discussing the same things ad nauseum every day. Face it, no one wants to talk about solutions because no one knows what to do. At least the Whiteheads continually warn that we “should” do something, I don’t even see that in most articles.

Macron’s “centrists and the left-wing” New Popular Front alliance advises tactical voting but “the trouble with this kind of party order is that fewer and fewer people listen to them anymore.” I wonder why? As do our concerned “progressives”: “The disappearance of the shame that used to attend a vote for the RN has been a long process, but it can now surely be declared to be complete.” I smell one of the larger rats here. The public has been presented with a contrived choice for a very long time I.e. a “Left” and a “Right” whose descriptions are steeped in non sequitur associations.

I do think, though, that there are some real ingredients that they put in the soup. Maybe a bit like the karma thing where they have to tell you what they’re doing, eg. Klaus’s books.

For example: I believe that Brexit was not in the plan. They misread the room and it caused a major hitch in the globalisation plan.

This weeks election in UK was supposed to be a Labour walkover and Starmer’s job was to realign UK with EU. Could that now be thwarted ?
