The Invisible Power Controlling the US Government

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 6/30/2022 6:47:06 AM

I have written extensively on inverted totalitarianism, that being the once nascent, now entrenched form of government that truly controls the levers of federal power in the United States. This behemoth has turned the USA into a “managed democracy”; a bureaucracy which cannot be held accountable by the elected representatives of the people. (Snip) The Brownstone Institute’s Jeffery Tucker recently wrote an article about an executive order passed by Trump shortly before his departure, which would have enabled huge progress towards reigning in the power of the administrative state. The executive order would have allowed agencies to reclassify policy jobs under a new schedule,


Trump's executive order made it possible to fire high-level bureaucrats who are now protected and cannot be fired, even by the president. Like Fauci, for example. This order might have been the most significant thing Trump did, and I'm sure it set the bureaucrats' hair on fire and caused them to do anything they could to prevent his re-election. Read the whole thing; it's not very long and I had to leave out some good stuff.

The federal government is a giant snowball rolling down the mountain. Its getting bigger and bigger and going faster and faster, destroying everything it rolls over. It cannot be stopped or diverted. When it finally hits the valley it and everything near will be obliterated.

There are tiny steps being taken by everyday Americans that are turning the lights back on. It is going to take time. The Zimmerman jury, Brown jury and Rittenhouse jury. Moms and dads cleaning out school boards and city halls all across America. State Houses in Arizona and Florida standing up to the criminal NEA. And of course President Donald John Trumps SCOTUS . As a gallant warrior in history once said " we've just begun to fight".

The days of going through life unconcerned about how your government works is over. Americans have been rudely awakened these past few years to the reality of power hungry control freaks that want to tell us all how to live our lives. We have learned just how dangerous to freedom these people are. Thankfully, we are fully awake and ready to take on this bureaucratic nightmare. President Trump did us a huge favor when he decided to run for President. He was determined to rid the government of this managed tyranny and corruption. It appears that most people really can’t handle power. It ruins them and they become bullies and tyrants. This is an issue that the Congress should take up. Unelected bureaucrats need to be taken down a peg or two. The little thugs are power mad and have zero accountability or oversight.

One of the problems PDT faced throughout his administration was an inability to find talent for major positions...Mad Dog, T-Rex and a host of others. What makes anyone think this Schedule F would improve the responsiveness of the bureaucracy? Just the threat of being fired? To be replaced by whom? The Trump Adminstration had no bench, from the very beginning. And then imagine what the Biden Administration could have done with this authority. Firing everyone is not a solution for the problem.

West Virginia vs the EPA is a case that was heard in the Supreme Court in February. The court will address whether the EPA can unilaterally issue rules to decarbonize certain sectors of the economy and reshape the country’s electricity grids or whether these rules are actually laws that should pass through legislation. A final decision is expected soon. With the rulings on the 2nd amendment, Roe, and WVA, we may have hit the trifecta. Thank you, Donald.

'If' the Republicans take control of both chambers don't expect them to do anything to reign in federal power over the lives of the citizens. 'Republican' Fred Upton ( and GWB ) is responsible for the 25 varieties of light bulbs you must decipher to purchase a device to allow you to read or see in your residence. Their most urgent task on day one is to begin feeding at the trough. Remember 'Repeal and Replace'?

The notion that Trump was prevented from firing Fauci or any other member of the Executive Branch by some extra-constitutional prohibition is blatantly false. He was never prevented from firing any person in his administration but he chose to keep in place some very bad actors, like Fauci, and actually added more bad actors starting with the poor personnel advice he received from within his own transition team at the start of his presidency. I left the federal Senior Executive Service in late 2008, before Obama was sworn in and began cleaning house to purge any sign of conservative leadership within his new administration. It’s not so much being able to fire as it is knowing whom to fire and following through.

All good points, but the recent WVa v. EPA ruling will be pulling the rug out from under a LOT of these bureaucracies. It will take many more individual cases against BATF, HHS, FDA and a couple of dozen other alphabet bureaucracies, and even more specific cases against the EPA to unravel this python of bureaucracy from around our collective necks, but this is the fulcrum upon which all those others will be leveraged. Starting to reverse this. NOW.

Headlines lately have not been encouraging for the faithful. A Gallup poll shows that the percentage of Americans who believe in God has fallen to 81 percent—a drop of 10 percent over the last decade and an all-time low. This accelerating trend is especially pronounced among young adults. (Snip) Perhaps surprisingly, our survey discovered that the perceived message of science has played a leading role in the loss of faith. We found that scientific theories about the unguided evolution of life have, in particular, led more people to reject belief in God than worries about suffering, disease, or death.

The calls and text messages are relentless. On the other end are doctors and scientists at the top levels of the NIH, FDA and CDC. They are variously frustrated, exasperated and alarmed about the direction of the agencies to which they have devoted their careers. “It's like a horror movie I'm being forced to watch and I can't close my eyes,” one senior FDA official lamented. “People are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.” That particular FDA doctor was referring to two recent developments inside the agency. First, how, with no solid clinical data, the agency authorized Covid vaccines for infants and toddlers,

First of all, none of you are required to become parents. Some people should never, ever be parents. The shrieking ogres bawling and fainting in front of the Supreme Court recently look like they’d make terrible mothers. (Snip) But for the rest of humanity, the normal people, parenthood is something that beckons like a shimmering far away shore as you exit your teenage years. “One day,” we think, “I’ll get to have my own baby!” Planned Parenthood is the greatest branding triumph in the modern world.

Police in the Netherlands opened fire at farmers protesting against the government’s radical new “climate change” policies. The shots were fired when a tractor convoy tried to push past a police barricade, the local news reports say. “The incident occurred late Tuesday evening on a freeway access near Heerenveen” in northern Holland, the Swiss newspaper Schweizer Bauer reported. “Farmers had blocked the road with tractors. As they approached police and their vehicles, the officers resorted to their firearms and hit at least one of the tractors,” the daily added, citing police sources.

Five weeks ago, shortly after the last mass shooting occurred, I published a two-part series demonstrating the link between taking certain psychiatric medicines and developing violent psychotic behavior, which includes committing mass shootings. Although this idea is commonly viewed as a “conspiracy theory” this label is inappropriate because there is a large amount of evidence showing this does happen, and both the pharmaceutical companies and the FDA know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the link exists.

Doctors are mystified by a rash of seizures, rashes, etc. happening to 2 and 3-year-old kids. The only thing these kids have in common is that they were given the COVID vaccine just days earlier (two to five days earlier). The doctors cannot figure out what is causing the seizures (since it couldn’t be the vaccine since those are safe and effective). The medical staff is not permitted to talk about the cases to the press or on social media or they will be fired. (Snip) There is nothing on the mainstream media about this since the nurses and doctors aren’t allowed to talk about it.

The power of the administrative state to destroy liberty and property – to blast through legislation, science, and judicial oversight – was never more on display than in the last two and a half years. One would hope that the deep bureaucracies would have learned their lessons on how not to respond to a new pathogen. There is no evidence they have. Regardless, the real problem is much deeper. It has to do with the status of the administrative state as the effective governing apparatus of the US. It’s not Congress and not the President. It’s the vast and permanent bureaucracy of 432 agencies and 2.9M bureaucrats who are unreachable

Furious Dutch farmers brought cows to The Hague and threatened to slaughter the animals on Tuesday in protest of the Netherlands' $26 billion climate plan that could reduce the livestock population by 30%. The Netherlands, one of Europe's top greenhouse gas emitters, is planning on halving its nitrogen output by 2030, Bloomberg reported. The government plan would shutter some farms, as much of the nitrogen is blamed on manure and fertilizer from cattle. The output goal is in compliance with European Union rules to reduce pollution. The Netherlands is the world's second-largest agricultural exporter, per AFP, and some regions of the country will need to cut as much as 95%

Ranking Senate Judiciary Committee member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) slammed the Department of Justice on Monday for "repeated failure to prosecute employees" who were caught lying during internal investigations. "An unsettling pattern has emerged from the Department of Justice (DOJ) whereby criminal referrals by the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (OIG), against DOJ employees for making materially false statements are rarely prosecuted," Grassley wrote in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland. Grassley said the "most shocking example of this pattern" occurred last month after the DOJ declined to bring charges against the former FBI agents who botched the investigation of Dr. Larry Nassar,

Spectacular and groundbreaking snapshots of the early cosmos gripped the world earlier this week when NASA released the first images from its new super space telescope. James Webb captured an unprecedented look at a 'stellar nursery', a dying star cloaked by dust and a 'cosmic dance' between a group of galaxies, along with hints of water vapor in the atmosphere of a remote exoplanet. What is even more exciting, however, is that astronomers say this is just 'the tip of the iceberg'. It is hoped the $10 billion (£7.4 billion) telescope will also observe the very first stars to shine, detect habitable planets in far-away galaxies and peer back in time
