The Pathocracy of the Deep State: Tyranny at the Hands of a Psychopathic Government
John W. Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 28 Oct 2019

There is no difference between psychopaths and politicians. Nor is there much of a difference between the havoc wreaked on innocent lives by uncaring, unfeeling, selfish, irresponsible, parasitic criminals and elected officials who lie to their constituents, trade political favors for campaign contributions, turn a blind eye to the wishes of the electorate, cheat taxpayers out of hard-earned dollars, favor the corporate elite, entrench the military industrial complex, and spare little thought for the impact their thoughtless actions and hastily passed legislation might have on defenseless citizens.

The Omnipresent Surveillance State: Orwell’s 1984 Is No Longer Fiction
John W. Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 Jun 2019

10 Jun 2019 – Tread cautiously: the fiction of George Orwell has become an operation manual for the omnipresent, modern-day surveillance state. It’s been 70 years since Orwell depicted the ominous rise of ubiquitous technology, fascism and totalitarianism in ‘1984’. Who could have predicted that after Orwell typed the final words to his dystopian novel, “He loved Big Brother,” we would fail to heed his warning and come to love Big Brother.

Technotyranny: The Iron-Fisted Authoritarianism of the Surveillance State
John W. Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Jun 2019

29 May 2019 – Red pill or blue pill? You decide. We are living the prequel to The Matrix with each passing day, falling further under the spell of technologically-driven virtual communities, virtual realities and virtual conveniences managed by artificially intelligent machines that are on a fast track to replacing us and eventually dominating every aspect of our lives. Science fiction has become fact.

D Is for a Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy
John W. Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 13 May 2019

7 May 2019 – What characterizes American government today is not so much dysfunctional politics as it is ruthlessly contrived governance carried out behind the entertaining, distracting and disingenuous curtain of political theater. We have moved beyond the era of representative government and entered a new age. You can call it the age of authoritarianism. Or fascism. Or oligarchy. Or the American police state. Whatever label you want to put on it, the end result is the same: tyranny.

John W. Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 29 Apr 2019

23 Apr 2019 – Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old. This is America’s dirty little secret.

The Age of Tyrannical Surveillance: We’re Being Branded, Bought and Sold for Our Data
John W. Whitehead – Information Clearing House, 4 Mar 2019

“We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about… Your digital identity will live forever… because there’s no delete button.” —Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt

Battlefield America: The Ongoing War on the American People
John W. Whitehead | Activist Post – TRANSCEND Media Service, 27 Aug 2018

21 Aug 2018 – These cases are legion. This is what a state of undeclared martial law looks like, when you can be arrested, tasered, shot, brutalized and in some cases killed merely for not complying with a government agent’s order or not complying fast enough. This isn’t just happening in crime-ridden inner cities. It’s happening all across the country. America has been locked down. This is what it’s like to be a citizen of the American police state.

Mass Shootings: The Military-Entertainment Complex’s Culture of Violence Turns Deadly
John W. Whitehead | Dissident Voice – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Oct 2017

“Mass shootings have become routine in the United States and speak to a society that relies on violence to feed the coffers of the merchants of death. Given the profits made by arms manufacturers, the defense industry, gun dealers and the lobbyists who represent them in Congress, it comes as no surprise that the culture of violence cannot be abstracted from either the culture of business or the corruption of politics. Violence runs through US society like an electric current offering instant pleasure from all cultural sources, whether it be the nightly news or a television series that glorifies serial killers.”

The Age of No Privacy: The Surveillance State Shifts into High Gear
John W. Whitehead - Waking Times, 3 Jul 2017

30 Jun 2017 – The government has become an expert in finding ways to sidestep what it considers “inconvenient laws” aimed at ensuring accountability. It knows all too well how to hide its nefarious, covert, clandestine activities behind the classified language of national security and terrorism. And when that doesn’t suffice, it obfuscates, complicates, stymies or just plain bamboozles the public into remaining in the dark.

The Radical Jesus: How Would the Baby in a Manger Fare in the American Police State?
John W. Whitehead | The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Mar 2017

Jesus was good. He was caring. He had powerful, profound things to say—things that would change how we view people, alter government policies and change the world. He went around helping the poor. And when confronted by those in authority, he did not shy away from speaking truth to power. Jesus was born into a police state not unlike the growing menace of the American police state.

The Emergence of Orwellian Newspeak and the Death of Free Speech
John W. Whitehead, The Rutherford Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service, 6 Jul 2015

From this point on, we have only two options: go down fighting, or capitulate and betray our loved ones, our friends and our selves by insisting that, as a brainwashed Winston Smith does at the end of Orwell’s 1984, yes, 2+2 does equal 5.

Life in the Electronic Concentration Camp: The Many Ways That You’re Being Tracked, Catalogued and Controlled
John W. Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute, 13 Jan 2014

What has been most disconcerting about the emergence of the American police state is the extent to which the citizenry appears content to passively wait for someone else to solve our nation’s many problems. Unless Americans are prepared to engage in militant nonviolent resistance in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi, true reform, if any, will be a long time coming.

Who’s to Blame for Battlefield America? Is It Militarized Police or the Militarized Culture?
John W. Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute, 18 Nov 2013

It’s hard to pinpoint what exactly is responsible for the growing spate of police shootings, brutality and overreach that have come to dominate the news lately, whether it’s due to militarized police, the growing presence of military veterans in law enforcement, the fact that we are a society predisposed to warfare, indoctrinated through video games, reality TV shows, violent action movies and a series of endless wars that have, for younger generations, become life as they know it—or all of the above.
