“A NATION OF SHEEP WILL BEGET A GOVERNMENT OF WOLVES”–EDWARD R. MURROW America is fast moving into a state of lockdown. Surveillance cameras, drug-sniffing dogs, SWAT team raids, roadside strip searches, blood draws at DUI checkpoints, mosquito drones, tasers, privatized prisons, GPS tracking devices, zero tolerance policies, overcriminalization, free speech zones—these are all symptoms of the emerging police state in America. A GOVERNMENT OF WOLVES paints a chilling portrait of a nation in the final stages of transformation into outright authoritarianism, whose citizens have become little more than a nation of suspects to be cowed, corralled, and controlled. Pulling from his extensive knowledge of constitutional law, history, and futuristic films, John W. Whitehead helps readers navigate this treacherous terrain and provides them with a blueprint for hopefully finding their way back to freedom.
In recent years, the American dream has been usurped, taking numerous opportunities away from ordinary working-class, middle-class Americans. In Nation of Killers, author Jack Carney shares what he believes has gone wrong and what might be done to address and correct it. Carney offers readers information they might not otherwise have, seeking to provoke them into reconsidering some conclusions about this country and its future direction. He argues that violence—rooted in white supremacist ideology—has been employed by one percenters and their surrogates to promote the country’s nineteenth-century expansion and its modern imperialist adventures and to subjugate those of its citizens who have been politically and economically marginalized since the nation’s founding. The essays in Part II comprise an organizing primer for activists, detailing key issues to be addressed and describing tactics and strategies already being employed to address them.
Providing a timely and much-needed investigation of how U.S. law enforcement carries out its public safety and crime fighting mandates, this book is an invaluable resource for students, educators, and concerned citizens. • Provides a single-volume, go-to source for insight into police-citizen relations in the United States, from the 17th century through to today • Documents major turning points and historical events influencing the evolution of police power • Provides both supportive and critical perspectives on contemporary trends in law enforcement activities, attitudes, and practices • Enables a fuller comprehension of law enforcement in an era of significant political and social upheaval, much of which is tied to racial, ethnic, or economic factors
Much has been written about the many economic benefits of globalization and the triumph and spread of democratic liberalism with the end of the Cold War, following the demise of the Soviet Union. This work takes issue with such "wine and roses" perspectives about the future of the Western democracies and their faith-based views on the moral purity of a globalized marketplace. It also questions many of the assumptions found in the status quo reinforcing discipline of international political economy (IPE)—a discipline that focuses on the formal and legitimate economies and the façade they present that international relations and commerce is still dominated and dictated solely by the old Westphalian state centric system. Having highlighted these concerns, this book looks at two major themes. The first theme focuses on the theoretical perception that a "Dark Renaissance" is taking place globally—one in which the Western liberal democracies and its citizens are ill prepared to respond because it exists at the trans-civilization level, bridging the modern to the post-modern world. The second theme focuses on the actual process of state deconstruction that is taking place. This process is leading to what may become the very undoing of the democracies. Drawing together experts from a variety of backgrounds, this work explores the increasing shift away from formal based capitalism and evaluates through case studies how different states are responding to the challenges they face. This work will be of great interest to students and scholars of international political economy.
Rahul Manchanda spent his entire life within the belly of the proverbial beast—that is, within the secret power structure of the United States and the international community, where he was culled and prepped for bigger and better things within a leadership role in the Deep State/New World Order. Along the way, he grew both alarmed and shocked at just how myopic and short-sighted these Deep State/New World Order types really were and how either inadvertently or purposefully the results of their clandestine and secretive plans of global “divide and conquer” often led to misery, genocide, death, racism, destruction of the family unit, wasted money, constant warfare, terrorism, and a frustration of the ideals of America as enshrined by the Founding Fathers within the U.S. Constitution. A philosophical and ideological founder of the Anonymous movement, with one of his own Associate Attorneys going on to start/lead the Occupy Wall Street/99% Movement at Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, he published vast amounts of political/deep state exposing articles anonymously until he was targeted by federal/state/local government mixed in conjunction with organized crime/foreign/domestic espionage and Edward Snowden revealed that there was no anonymity on the internet, whereupon Mr. Manchanda started writing and publishing his essays using his real name and identity. The articles contained in this book are some of those articles written under his real name. His book takes us on a journey to expose some of these conspiracies and plots within the U.S. Judicial Court and Legal System, foreign and domestic policy, non-governmental organizations, finance and economics, international relations, history, and religion while sometimes analyzing many of the leading culprits in their ruthless and bloodthirsty quests for a Deep State New World Order, and tries to bring attention to the plots and plans, cautioning the governed about their governors. History only repeats itself if the people are uninformed, and his book tries to ensure that we as the human race do not fall into the existential pitfalls of ignorance but rather move into a future of enlightenment and learning from past historical mistakes in order to strengthen and preserve our freedoms into eternity.
"Author paints a portrait of an evolving American police state as police authority expands into extensions of the military, and government's intrusions undermine basic freedoms guaranteed to American citizens under the Constitution, turning Americans into enemy combatants who are spied upon, raided, manhandled, silenced, locked up, shot at, and denied due process of the law"--
