I am re-posting below an article written by John W. Whitehead, titled “Freedom or the Slaughterhouse? The American Police State from A to Z”. Originally posted July 14, 2015 on The Rutherford Institute‘s website, it provides a sobering and detailed overview of the state of affairs in the United States as Operation Jade Helm 15 is about to roll.
“Warning signs are all around us,” Whitehead writes. “The question is whether you will organize, take a stand and fight for freedom, or will you, like so many clueless Americans, freely walk into the slaughterhouse?”
David Hodges of The Common Sense Show goes even further in his article titled Jade Helm and FEMA Camps Are Appearing In Every Modern Nation, just published today, where he notes that the Police State is rearing its ugly head all over the world.
For instance, Spain recently adopted a new public safety law, called “the gag law” by its critics (Spain’s New Public Safety Law Has Its Challengers, New York Times, June 30 2015). Among other restrictions, the law forbids unauthorized gatherings around Parliament and other important buildings.
In another recent article published July 14, Don’t Fear Greece, It Is South Africa That Holds the Key to America’s Future, Dave Hodges claims that South Africa is another example of the shape of things to come all over the world.

“Who needs direct repression when one can convince the chicken to walk freely into the slaughterhouse?”
― Philosopher Slavoj Žižekthe
Despite the best efforts of some to sound the alarm, the nation is being locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.
All the while, the nation’s citizens seem content to buy into a carefully constructed, benevolent vision of life in America that bears little resemblance to the gritty, pain-etched reality that plagues those unfortunate enough to not belong to the rarefied elite.
For those whose minds have been short-circuited into believing the candy-coated propaganda peddled by the politicians, here is an A-to-Z, back-to-the-basics primer of what life in the United States of America is really all about.
