The Founding Fathers wouldn’t recognize America today. The
God-given freedoms they championed in the Bill of Rights have been chipped away
over the years by an ever-intrusive government bent on controlling all aspects
of our lives in the name of safety and security. NSA wire-tapping and data
collection is Orwellian in its scope. The TSA, BLM, and IRS are all jockeying
for control of our lives. Warrantless searches are on the rise and even
encouraged in some communities. Free speech, the right to bear arms, private
property, and freedom of religion all are under attack. The Constitution has
been tossed on the same trash pile as the Bible. From traffic light cameras to
phone tapping, from militarized police forces to targeting specific groups of
people, the government is unfettered in its desire to control the American
Police State USA chronicles how America got to the
point of being a de facto police state and what led to an out-of-control
government that increasingly ignores the constitution and exploits 9/11
security fears to justify spying on its citizens. Stunning new surveillance
technology makes it easier to keep tabs on the people. The acquisition by police
departments of major battlefield equipment emboldens officials to strong-arm
those they should be protecting. The failure of the news media to uphold the
rights of citizens sets the stage for this slippery slope.
Police State USA tells how we might overcome and
recapture our freedoms, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

By John Tiffany
Many spokesmen in the
patriot movement make a habit of warning that a police state is coming in
America. Author Cheryl K. Chumley in the new book, POLICE STATE USA: How
Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality, has bad news: Bill Binney,
the “brain” who forged the future for massive data spying technology for the
National Security Agency, said in a December 2013 interview that the United
States had already turned into a police state. Ms. Chumley shows us the facts
we may have missed.
A central theme
in POLICE STATE USA is that our rights come from God. The government does not like that. They want our rights to come from the government, so that the government can take them away whenever it feels like it. This may explain, in
large part, why the government seems to be on the
warpath against Christianity. Anything to destroy
our existing culture.
What makes us a police
In June 2013, Robert
Mueller, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s director, admitted to the Senate
Intelligence Committee the agency flies unmanned spy aircraft—drones—over U.S.
soil. He said it was to aid in criminal cases—but who knows? Spy drones now
exist the size of a hummingbird, and Big Brother is perfecting models the size
of a housefly.
In March 2012, Attorney
General Eric Holder boasted that President
Barack Obama has the “right” to authorize a
fatal drone strike against Americans on U.S.
On July 10, 2011,
Anthony Mitchell of Henderson, Nevada received
a phone call at his house from the police, who
asked to use the home to spy on his neighbor,
whom they suspected of domestic violence. He
refused, yet minutes later five cops were
standing at his front door demanding to
be let in. Eventually, they forced entry with a battering ram. Once inside, they ordered
him at gunpoint down on the floor and gave him bizarre orders—crawl over here, lie down, stay still. They shot him and his dog with “pepperball projectiles,” cursing at him the whole time. Pepperballs
have been known to kill people. Unbelievably, they
charged Mitchell with obstructing a cop and
jailed him for nine hours.
The earliest Christians
had no such thing as a church building—that
idea was borrowed later on from the pagans.
But in July 2012, a Phoenix, Arizona pastor
was jailed for 60 days for holding prayer services
in his home. Local government tinpot tyrants
said by illegally operating a church in his home
he was violating 67 zoning laws.
POLICE STATE USA also
looks at the problem of Obama and other
presidents out of control. Our founding
fathers wanted a central government of limited
powers. As Thomas Jefferson put it, “The 10th
Amendment is the foundation of the Constitution.” Those limited powers were to
be divided in a system of checks and balances.
But today a president
can create law with the stroke of a pen
through executive orders and national security
directives. Consider President Bill Clinton’s
multiple orders to label millions of acres of
land as national monuments, with accompanying
land use restrictions, with strokes of his
pen—clearly an unconstitutional usurpation. In
one executive order alone Clinton created a
gigantic 1.7-million-acre national monument,
the Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah, on
September 18, 1996. This was done without congressional approval and without consulting the government of Utah.
And it is not just
grown-ups who have to deal with Big Brother.
The police state has ways of meddling with our
offspring. In 2010, a star athlete in her last
year of high school was charged with a misdemeanor and faced a possible six months in jail for bringing a paring knife to school to cut up an apple.
Chumley, “If we don’t soon take back
control—if we don’t right this rudder and steer
our ship back to a godly course—the vision of
America, the shining city on the hill, will go dark.”
The concept of
God-given rights will be gone, and we will be
stuck with an imperial government doling out
only those privileges it sees fit—a government not by the people but by an
