Head of the Statue of Freedom standing atop the Capitol Building looking somewhat bewildered, almost saying, “Where is everybody?”

This piece is not about space aliens, but it might just as well be. It is an appraisal of a government that has ignored the needs of the people in favor of its own interests.

The Supreme Court, in a remarkable 5-4 decision, told Texas on Monday (1/22/24) that federal authorities can remove the barbed wire that prevents unvetted illegal immigrants from entering our country. It, once again, leaves us to wonder who in the court has been compromised or gone to the dark side.

Though the court did not prohibit Texas from re-installing new barbed wire, it has brought us closer to civil war by steering the federal government against a sovereign state.

If the latest Supreme Court ruling has shown anything, it’s that we stand alone. We are on our own and have been for many years, except for a brief respite during Trump’s presidency. But now, no one in any of the three branches of government, to any great extent, is looking out for the citizens of this country. If there are, we’re not seeing it. Permanent Washington, or the Deep State, has become an army of independent contractors working for themselves, selling off our country to the highest bidder. It’s an undeclared, unelected branch of government that badly needs an enema, for lack of a better word.

The present government apparently has no thought of protecting its people from foreign invasion, crime, disease, drug, and sex trafficking on our southern border. Neither do they care about dangerous vaccines, sabotage, election interference, or foreign influence. Millions of illegal aliens have entered our country, shielded by our own government from what laws we have left. The vast majority of these invaders are single military-age males.

There is no longer any doubt that our government has allowed and is taking part in a foreign invasion to destroy America as we know it. In just 2023 alone, over 3 million illegal aliens have passed through our borders, almost 10 million since 2021, and the government has made no comment except to say that the border is secure or give us their ‘bull’ story of how broken our immigration system is and blame it on the Republicans. This is treason in its purest form—an intentional, felonious crime against the people of this nation with no one interested in prosecuting it. 25 states have stepped up to aid Texas in its defense of their state.

We were told in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 that a border wall was too expensive, that it could not be done, and that it would cost upwards of $15–20 billion. Trump managed to build about 500 miles, with every mile fought against by a Democrat Congress. And yet, we now spend about $200 billion per year on costs associated with illegal immigration. I have said this before, and I am certainly not the only one saying it; we are being replaced while we watch! The establishment is not happy with the current citizen voter, so demographic change—a more pliable citizenry—is their solution.

Every decision the government makes, every law they try to pass, and every executive order issued have a political component firmly attached. The political opposition of this present government—approaching two-thirds of the population—is no longer of any concern to this regime. They are, for all intents and purposes, invisible.

Clearly, since 9/11, the government has abused its power. But that was not the genesis of that abuse. Since the Kennedy assassination, trust in our government has deteriorated to a dangerous level. Only about a third of Americans believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. To most Americans, the Warren Report remains a work of fiction. We were told repeatedly to move on; there is nothing to see here. But credible reports still, to this day, keep rising to the surface.

Just since 2011, the public perception of the government protecting our rights has dropped considerably. The right to freedom of assembly went from 75% to 42%. The right to an impartial jury dropped from 67% to 44%. The right to keep and bear arms saw a further decrease, from 57% to 35%. Freedom of religion went from 75% to 51%. And freedom of speech went from 71% to 41%, the most basic of rights.

Interestingly, Democrats, as a group, don’t see the loss of rights as much of a problem as Republicans do. Something to consider in the next election.

The viewpoint of public surveillance is not good for members of either party. The support for the monitoring of domestic phone calls went from 23% in 2011 to 14% in 2021. Support for snooping on international calls has decreased from 49% to 28%. Support for monitoring internet searches from 48% to 27%. Private emails from 30% to 17%. The only surveillance that enjoys any support is cameras in public places. That stands at 60%, but has dropped by 10%.

What it shows this analyst is that 9/11, as well as COVID-19, was an opportunity and excuse for the government to squeeze more control over the populace. The Bush and Obama administrations went to great lengths to widen their aim for the surveillance of ordinary Americans—illegally, of course.

It is a hard thing to say, but it is no longer a conspiracy to say that elections in this country are not what people think. They are filled with corruption, government operatives, foreign and domestic, working in the background with mules, harvesters, hackable voting machines, and tabulators. There are people in our government right now who only want the appearance of democracy. And the ones to watch are those that scream ‘save democracy’ the loudest.

We are apparently on the same election road we all took in 2020 and probably well before that. Biden is now being advised to hide away, not campaign. Understandable since he has become almost completely inarticulate. The Democrats will not accept a loss in 2024, so the machinery the Democrats used to win the 2020 election is probably being dusted off with new algorithms installed.

In June 2023, the Federal District Court in Atlanta unsealed a 96-page report on the security of Georgia’s voting and tabulation system. It’s a system Georgia has used for about 15 years. Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, had been hiding this report for two years. Far-left Federal Judge Amy Totenberg also sat on the report until now.

The report confirmed that votes can be altered on the Dominion voting machines, are vulnerable, and can be hacked.

On 1/19/24, in federal court in Atlanta, J. Alex Halderman, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Michigan, before U.S. District Court Judge Amy Totenberg, using only a pen, was able to change vote totals in a Dominion voting tabulator. It was demonstrated how easy it is to hack. It only took minutes.

Professor Halderman said:
“Back in September 2020, the Court granted … Plaintiffs access to one of Georgia’s touchscreen ballot marking devices (BMDs) so that they could assess its security…I extensively tested the machine, and we discovered vulnerabilities in nearly every part of the system that is exposed to potential attackers.”

“The most critical problem we found is an arbitrary-code execution vulnerability that can be exploited to spread malware from a country’s central election management system (EMS) to every BMD in the jurisdiction. This makes it possible to attack the BMDs at scale, over a wide area, without needing physical access to any of them. FrankSpeech

Mr. Halderman’s demonstration is not new or unique. It has been shown before, even live on Fox News/Brett Baier 7 years ago. Princeton professor Andrew Appel exposed how it can be done with a simple screwdriver to replace a computer chip. These machines can be hacked. We have been lied to wholesale!

“There are forces within the U.S. government wholly beyond democratic control. These forces are more powerful than the elected officials that supposedly oversee them. These forces can affect election outcomes. They can even hide their complicity in the murder of an American president [or candidate]. In other words, they can do pretty much anything they want. They constitute a government within a government, mocking, by their very existence, the idea of democracy.” Fox News, Tucker Carlson, 12/15/22

If ever we needed a strong, straight-talking leader, it is now. People who are easily offended by strength need to get over it and quickly. In a republican form of government where citizens constitutionally hold power, much of our government has become intolerable. Millions of our people, men and women, have given their lives to form and preserve this nation and our freedom. To do anything less than drain our swamp of corruption dishonors them and is a massive breach of trust. Until then, we are indeed alone.
