America as a police state no longer is a conspiracy spin, but now is a very painful reality! While the USA has only 5% of the world’s population, our country now jails 25% of the world’s prisoners. This scary news stream rolled across the bottom of our TV screens this week and a great new book about what’s being done to average citizens is a must read!
“Deep State: Inside the Government’s Secrecy Industry” is a big reveal for we ordinary citizens who are being watched 24/7 by a statist government that refuses to police itself. “We have more in jail now than China, a country four times bigger,” said a book reviewer on the very liberal Bill Maher’s punditry show. He gave rave reviews to this new book that peels back the curtains of America’s Secrecy State. “There is a hidden country within the United States,” and our government is using all sorts of subterfuge to insure power is held in the hands of Obama’s secret army of in-the-know, in-country spies. A book description up on Amazon says, “The government secrecy industry speaks in a private language of codes and acronyms, and follows an arcane set of rules and customs designed to perpetuate itself, repel penetration, and deflect oversight.” Our American values, indeed the very fabric of our republic, are being mined by deception of a secret army that takes marching orders from the Oval Office.

The authors of “Deep State” are Marc Ambinder and D.B. Grady, correspondents for ABC, BS, and the Atlantic. So if the situation looks bad to these insiders, bad enough for them to pen this best seller, then we have to wake up now. Here are the five main divisions of this book: 1) a full review of the NSA’s surveillance program that 9/11 caused 2) Obama’s use of the state secrets doctrine and his executive power bonanza 3) How the public’s own access to plenty of information is turning out to be his secrecy state’s biggest nightmare 4) How SEAL Team Six, Delta Force, Area 51, and the NSA, CIA, and FBI are affected by this Deep Secrecy State. Even our national budgets are prey to this statist beast. 5) Finally, this book analyzes whether these measures put in place to “protect citizens” are even working.
Just this week we learn that one little boy who was playing out in the snow with his friends was charged with a FELONY after he threw a snowball! This incredible overreach by statist police is just a harbinger of what we’re in for should we not rein in this freedom to spy, arrest and jail ordinary citizens. When CA Senator Dianne Feinstein spoke in such funereal tones of the harm done by the Snowden spy information dump, she showed her own face. Who can forget the position she had in procurement sub committees in Congress at the same time her own husband was buying and selling to the military industrial complex.!
This great new book is required homework for each and everyone American. “Deep State disassembles the secrecy apparatus of the United States and examines real world trends that ought to trouble everyone,” says the book’s synopsis. If this little boy’s parents are asking “WHY” of their local police, are we asking “WHY” of the White House and Congress? At least state and local authorities in Utah are looking to cut off water and power supplies to the nation’s biggest spy center under construction out there. Huge amounts of water are needed to cool their data storing computers. Will you do something to keep us out of the gray bar inns of Washington, D.C.’s intentions for us?
