Is our government out of control?

Conspiracy seems to be turning into reality.

For years I have listened to talk show hosts and conspiracy theorist proclaim the government – THIS government – as deceptive,  manipulative, agenda-driven, and basically evil. There have been talks of our government spying on its citizens. Working on agenda’s whereby corporate America is represented by our government rather than WE THE PEOPLE – who should be. I have heard theories which discuss the constant, slow deterioration of the US Constitution  purposely as part of a long-term agenda which creates more power for the government and less rights for the people. Theories are plentiful that socialism is spreading across America generating legions of entitled voters who will find it in their best interest to vote the Socialist agenda back into office – year after year after year. Along with all of that and so much more – theories are abound  that  there is a genuine war against Christianity with the objective of removing it from as many peoples lives as possible.

Again…..conspiracy seems to be turning into reality. Let’s take a look at some recent events:


PRISM – Probably the most recent scandal  – the FBI and NSA have gained access to  texts, emails, stored files, photographs, video’s and calls from those that held accounts with Google, Apple, Yahoo, Facebook, Microsoft, Skype, YouTube, and AOL. This has been going on for the last 6 years and is ongoing.


Access to Verizon Phone Records – The NSA also gained access through a top secret program to ALL 121 million Verizon customers records. They gained access to who was called, for how long, and location. This has been gong on for the past 7 years and the public has just found out.


IRS targeting groups for political reasons – Over two years ago IRS officials discovered that there were those within the ranks of the organization targeting groups with conservative foundations. Conservative groups as well as many related to terms such as “patriot” and “tea party” had applications for non-profit status delayed – sometimes for months – due to political reasons. The IRS responded to applications with massive questionnaires with inquiries such as  needing all organization members Facebook accounts, Twitter accounts,  and asked questions and asked for information such as:

  • “Please provide copies of all your current web pages, including your Blog posts. Please provide copies of all of your newsletters, bulletins, flyers, newsletters or any other media or literature you have disseminated to your members or others. Please provide copies of stories and articles that have been published about you.”
  • “Do you have a close relationship with any candidate for political office or political party? If so describe fully the nature of that relationship.”
  • “Provide minutes of all board meetings since your creation.”
  • They requested lists of all issues important to the organization as well as their position on each issue.

And this one….in which the IRS asks for a “listing of our ‘committed violations of local ordinances, breaches of public order or arrests’ then requested details on how we ‘conduct or promote’ illegal activities.”


US Justice Depart secretly obtains 2 months of phone records of reporters and editors from the Associated Press – In an investigation to determine who leaked information out of the White House the Justice Department collected records on more than 100 journalists AND relatives. Attorney General Holder said the following – “”With regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something that I have ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be a wise policy”. Interesting – but it turns out he flat out lied.

Holder was was fully aware of the situation as he personally signed the affidavit for the warrant allowing Fox News correspondent James Rosen’s records to be accessed due to suspicion of “probable cause to believe that the reporter has committed violation [of the Espionage Act] at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator”.


Susan Rice, Hilary Clinton and Benghazi – I am not going to go through all the details of what happened here. Basically our embassy in Libya was attacked and several people were killed – including the US Ambassador. The White House came out immediately and said that the violence erupted due to an anti-Muslim YouTube video. Susan Rice went on multiple talk shows spreading the word that the YouTube video caused the problem and those involved would be brought to justice.


Well, turns out the YouTube video had nothing to do with it. It was a planned terrorist attack on September 11th – nothing else. The folks asked for help while being attacked and the White House did nothing. Military resources were at the ready – and the order to stand down was given. Who gave that order? We do not know and the information has not been released. Obama went on the campaign trail the next day. The White House continued to spew the “YouTube video” story for almost two weeks. Well – turns out that was a total lie. The White House knew almost  immediately that it was a terrorist attack. Susan Rice has now been promoted to National Security Advisor.


IRS Official in charge during anti-Conservative actions now in charge of Obama-care Office – Sarah Hall Ingram, who was the person responsible for tax-exempt organizations during the time period where Conservative and Tea Party organizations were targeted by the IRS is now the director of the IRS Affordable Care Act Office.


There’s more… much more. Our government has become corrupt, inefficient, mis-lead, and NOT for the people. Congress is full of Corporate Representatives. Just look back when billions and billions of dollars were given to the BANKS as a way to help people. Really? Please. The government-run “Cash for Clunkers” program sought to increase demand for new vehicles to spark business for the car industry and costs tax payers billions of dollars. In the end – the program cost taxpayers $24,000 per vehicle traded in. Ridiculous.

In the aforementioned examples – our 4th Amendment Rights are being trampled upon with government spying programs such as PRISM and the NSA’s infiltration of our electronic life – and files. The IRS’s use of power to influence the political landscape is just one example of the misuse of OUR government. Same goes for the DoJ’s investigation of reporters due to apparent leaks. One of the main avenues to keeping government doing the right thing is the threat that media will “spill the beans” if they don’t. The investigation and access to records of over 100 reporters and warrants indicating the possible charge of “espionage” on said reporters is nothing but government intimidation. Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and Obama flat out lied about Benghazi. Holder flat out lied about his knowledge of the investigations on journalists. The list goes on and on.


Let me make something crystal clear here – I am not talking about just our current administration in the White House. These things have been going on for years and years. I will say that those currently in the White House have made the largest advances AGAINST the US Constitution and what our Founding Fathers stood for – than all other Administrations combined.

You’ve seen the headlines – “Laws passed disallowing salt on restaurant tables.”  , “Child has lemonade stand taken down due to not having a permit.”, “Student suspended from school for pretending cookie is gun.”, “Teacher pushes Obama in classroom.”, ” ‘Merry Christmas’ replaced with ‘Happy Holidays’ in stores so as not to offend.”, “Team ordered not to pray before games.”…….it goes on and on.

Things are changing – and not for the better. The bad part is there is not much that WE THE PEOPLE can do. Those in power have created a solid base of followers who have it in their best interest to keep them in power. The mainstream media have been avid supporters of the progressive corporate representatives helping spread their agenda to the masses. Government regulations are becoming overbearing and the costs to do most anything is getting more expensive, which of course gets passed on to the consumer. Government’s hands are getting deeper and deeper into all of our lives.

We need to do all we can to become as self-reliant as possible and minimize our exposure to government. In today’s world – not an easy task. Sounds like an idea for another article.

Take care all –

  1. The fact is our government is being systematically destroyed from within. Obamas efforts to take our country down seem to be working. Where the hell is the honest congress when we need them most? They are all there with their hands out for the money and power they covet! The few honest men out there in congress are basically powerless and weak. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE TO VOTE IN THE MID TERMS TO GET OUR COUNTRY BACK TO WHERE IS WAS!

  2. Being a Christian I see end time approaching…I believe our nation will be a non-factor in biblical events…if that is the case our nation will have a major shake up of some sort to knock it out of world dominance.

  3. You are correct Rourke-Randy I believe our world and our nation are now in Tribulation. Watched a superb problem last night on the History Channel regarding
    Revelations and Armageddon -entitled Countdown to Armageddon.I recommend it highly.
    What can we do ? Vote,contact our representatives, write letters to newspapers etc. Join the NRA,
    prep harder than ever , form a supportive group= communities- PRAY- PRAY HARDER …. Arlene

    The Lord through Mother Nature will probably affect us all with crises – of climate and weather -maybe the grid going down would be a positive in many ways.

  4. I’m not a Christian,but a DRUID Preist.

    But if you must point fingers & shake your Fist’s in the air, Do it at or to every politcian in Washington D.C. I allready know that we’re in the end time. & if you look back in to history you’ll see what’s been lost since Then & Now ! Freedom of speach(to congragate in groups of 3 or more & express ourselves Freely ) Now Illeagal, The freedom to express ourselves in Writing almost gone excepy in forums like this Which are heavily monitored by our SNOOPY BIG BROTHER ! There are many other FREEDOMS GRANTED by our FOUNDING FATHER that have just been given away by the Voting System NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN ! & I’m real Sure our Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves at what we’ve been left with in their Glouriuos Gem of the Promissed Land ! Even if 1/3 of them were an off shoot of Druidism. i.e. (free masions)

  5. Rourke, I think like you that this problem we have now has been coming for a long time, the goernment has made it easy for people to become dependant on it for a reason, control. People today seem to want to take rather than be self sufficiant, and as such we may have to see a conflict in this country to make a correction back to our Founding Farthers idea of a Republic of laws, not a Democracy of give me what I want, John.

  6. I agree Rourke, It has been some time since I could see much of a difference between our two political parties. Sadly it seems that elections today are not the means by which we can save ourselves or our republic, we no longer hold that much influence. We vote only on who and how the spoils will be divided. The leviathan has grown too large, too powerful and very forgetful. It’s past time to force our leaders to live up to our founders visions, and given the types of “public servants” we have, the only thing that will convince them that we will not accept anymore coloring outside the lines is the guaranty of unthinkably severe punishment should they betray us. The guillotine was once thought an effective tool of persuasion and could be again. Once our elected officials witness a few of their ilk on their knees, that the blade is sharp and drops smoothly we will get a better class of “public servant”. This is the only way I know of to fix this (I haven’t a clue how we get there). A democracy like the one our founders designed and that we held onto for so long is as beautiful and fragile as a butterfly’s wing…. but in the wrong hands it’s as dangerous as a swinging knife in the dark…. we are being cut to pieces and I suspect “the citizens” are too numb to feel the pain.

  7. we are a divided society- we have the “elite”- politicians ( on both sides of the aisle), the extremely wealthy, and many academics. . . and the rest of us. The elite have control of the law making machinery, and use it to control the rest of us. Sadly, many of “us”-sheeple- willingly go along with whatever is thrown at us, as long as the sheeple can live their happy little gov’t. dependent lives. What are the awake minority (preppers, patriots, etc) to do? Do we sit and calmly wait to be taken to internment camps, or worse? That is the question no one on any of these prepper sites is willing to deal with. Everyone ties themselves up in knots to avoid a direct answer to this question. You are fooling yourselves if you think voting is going to change anything anymore. The foxes are in control of the henhouse.
