The next President should get rid of the departments of energy, education, transportation, health and human services, housing and urban development, labor, commerce, agriculture and interior. None of that is the role of the federal government and whatever those departments do messes up those areas of our economy. The department of homeland security should be told to totally secure our borders within one year or be folded into the department of defense which should then be given that assignment. The department of defense should remove all military personnel and equipment from all countries other than the US. The US should get out of NATO and the UN and ALL other world organizations, and stop funding them. That would be a start.

I like where you're going with this, but would include Homeland Security in the list of administrative organizations to dissolve. Ostensibly created as an overall administrative hub for our federal law enforcement and security services in response to the terrorist threat after 9/11, its purpose was to enable communication and coordination across agencies who were often competitive and at odds with one another.

What we have today is a Goliath that seeks to control all aspects of law enforcement and security. Under Obama they created their own Federal Homeland Security Police.

Why? The FBI ( which needs a complete housecleaning and overhall if they continue to exist) was intended to be the federal investigative body. Secret Service, US Marshall and myriad other federal and state law enforcement bodies already exist.

As you mentioned, The Department of Education needs to go as well. We really don't need the federal control that comes with federal dollars mucking up education. Bring it back down to state level, or even better, back to more localized control.

Right, the more local the better. But we're just dreaming aren't we? Nothing short of an armed rebellion could get it done. And while we certainly have more than 'muskets', they have much, much more than muskets.

I hope that a bunch of small victories will get us closer, at least, to where we want to be. I'm guessing the bottom up approach will be the winning strategy, because clearly working from the top down is just too daunting.

School boards, local elections, county positions, then working our way up the chain.

I don't know. Nothing is impossible, I suppose.

I'm in Southern California where the "fight or flight" conundrum is being felt by many. The bottom up strategy has been proven to work - by the left. Conservatives will find it difficult because our natures are not to inflict our will on others. We don't spend time thinking about making society different than it is. We just want to go to work, make some money, have our family and friends and live according to our beliefs and assume everyone else is doing the same thing. We've had a big awakening.

I'm in SoCal also. You are correct. As a conservative American, I really just want my government(s), including the administrative state, to just leave me alone and let me live my life, but they don't have it in them to do that. I'm not interested in inflicting my will on others. I want to live under the terms of The US Constitution.

In the sixties and seventies, we would have been called the "silent majority". Its past time for us to stop voting for the president every four years, then going to sleep with the hope that it will all work out.

If the past 2 years has taught me anything, its that we've been letting ourselves be manipulated and controlled. The plandemic has exposed much. Time to try to fix it.

I'm afraid when that happens it will be too late. I agree we need to be reasonable and logical, but I don't know that calm and gentle are appropriate. Jesus was calm and gentle, but not when it came time to throw the pharisees out of the temple.

Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Michigan's Hillsdale College recently gave a presentation promoting that school's Barney School Initiative, an opportunity for children to receive actual learning in school v indoctrination and anti-American programming. Knoxville television and the World Socialist Web Site (wsws.org) picked up on Dr. Arnn''s comments, specifically his statement that educators are taught by the worst teachers and graduate with the most useless college degrees.

Of course, Dr. Arnn and governor Bill Lee (who listened to the speech and didn't condemn it) are being slammed by the media and teachers' organizations. This, of course, in spite of the fact that every word Dr. Arnn spoke was true.

Our society is run by loud-mouthed bullies, idiots, and fascists.

Yes. I think Dr. Malone is far too restrained as I quote below. The left would never hesitate to recommend cutting the head off the snake to kill it. We must do the same. Cut off the 3-letter agencies starting with their budgets and their management. (FDA, CDC, FBI, CIA, NSA, TSA for starters.) Hire management companies to keep their buildings from collapsing from when their employees go home until the buildings are sold or demolished. Malone was far to nice: "To the extent these administrators are able to be held to task, this accountability flows indirectly from congress. Their organizational budgets can be either enhanced or cut during following fiscal years, but otherwise they are largely protected from corrective action including termination of employment absent some major moral transgression."

There are some functions in some of these departments which are both useful and constitutional. For example, Dep't of Commerce produces the decennial census. Also, I suspect that the President wouldn't be able to abolish departments without Congressional approval. If s/he is respecting the Constitution.

None of which is to deny that a huge reduction in the mass of the Federal gov't would benefit the people.

Expand full comment

Right. The President would have to "lead" the effort and would need majorities in the House and Senate but I think the route would be to defund the departments. The fact that a department is useful doesn't mean it is needed or that it isn't part of the swamp. Too much power is being given to these layers and layers of bureaucrats who are pretty much unaccountable for the damage they do.

The following analogy one of my commenters used for Covidians seems appropriate for the Administrative State and its subsidiary cartel agencies:

“Trouble is your sparring opponent partner, via his Covidian humanoid transformation, has become like those entities in Terminator that regardless of how your full broadside salvos seem to reduce him to oblivion, the puddle of mercury on the mat you reduced him to reforms into yet another version of unremitting terror hellbent on eliminating you with its heretofore unseen, unknown, infinitely evil power.” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/dispatches-from-the-new-normal-front-d2c/comment/6126449)

I look forward to hearing your proposed solutions for disintegrating the metastasized malignancy known as the Administrative State in Part 2.

Robert, if you haven’t yet had a chance to read it, the essay I wrote in preparation for my Corona Investigative Committee interview on Friday is having a far more explosive effect than I expected, and I think you may find my Retrospective in Whys covering the past two+ years valuable as you assess the progression of lunacy throughout the manufactured COVIDcrisis:

If only I were still naive, life would be so much easier. Thank you and Jill for making this complicated explanation easier to comprehend. Deep down Americans know that something is just not right. When and how our country went off the rail is something we all need to understand. If we cannot comprehend the basic problem, then we cannot address a possible solution. Here’s hoping that I live long enough to see the wrong righted.

Incredibly well-written and well-documented… I never understood (and still don’t understand) how our government initially allowed (and continues to allow) corporate fees to be paid to our regulatory agencies or how it allowed (and continues to allow) the glorious revolving door. In either case, it doesn’t take the proverbial rocket scientist to figure out that blind eyes and “special” favors will always supplant “regulation.”

Expand full comment

Yes. And the same problem has occurred generally due to the Citizens United ruling which has allowed private money to flow into government and resulted in our legislators and elections being bought. We've also allowed corporations to grow into monopolies and acquire vast sums of money which is used to buy up more and more power and influence over the very governments and agencies that were intended to regulate them.

The solution to the 'too much money in politics' problem is to push as hard as we can to get back to the constitutional limits on federal powers. If the federal government only did what it is allowed to do in the Constitution, there really would be very little to fight over domestically; the federal government's powers were to have to do with externals - foreign policy, etc. The states and the people were to be self-governing over internal issues.

My guess is that it ran along the lines of, "Why should taxpayers foot this entire bill? Why aren't the companies who will make the profits paying for the work to assess and approve, or not, their products?" You can see the logic and fairness of this argument, and though I don't know who was behind the institution of it as policy, it reminds me of the general ideas and policies of the Reagan era. I can also imagine that, since so much money in regulatory burden and possible future profits (or only losses) were at stake, that companies trying to get products through the regulatory agencies did everything they could behind the scenes to influence the outcome. Perhaps it was thought that instituting user fees would at least put the money flow into the open.

My physician colleagues listen to the CDC, NIH and FDA. Journal articles and news feed articles that hit your email are golden. The Gates foundation funds these research articles. The Fauci narrative is what they listen to. Most never connect the dots and whatever Fauci says goes , besides standard of care is imperative to keep lawyers away. Break this mindset and you will break the chains that keep many physicians captive. Sad but true.

Patrick Byrne has been shouting about Deep Capture for over 15 years. His focus was mainly on financial regulation, but he also touched on other sectors. In various entries, he explained that the rot even back then included academia, journalism as well as the regulatory agencies. It's become clear now that the entire administrative system of the federal government is deeply corrupt and that corruption has spread to non-government entities unrelated to the sector in discussion. Thus, the MIC has corrupted academia and media, as has public health, in addition to the financial sector Patrick was focused on: https://www.deepcapture.com/introduction-to-the-deep-capture-analysis/

I’ve said this before we need to get back too the basic tenets of our United States Constitution which granted very limited enumerated powers to the federal government. Nowhere in the Constitution does it enumerate any power for health, heath care, health oversight, health funding, etc. to the federal government. As “I am not your Other” wrote “they all need to be disbanded. Start over. Dead serious.” I agree wholeheartedly. Not just HHS, but just about every alphabet agency over which the federal government has no enumerated power. One of the immediate effects would be a drastically huge reduction in the federal budget and the need for federal tax revenue (except maybe for a time to eliminate the federal debt). The individual states with the consent of their respective citizens could exercise power over such areas of concern, such as health, education and whatever. What I’m suggesting could be quickly accomplished by Congress by simply eliminating the funding for these agencies. The Supreme Court, like Congress and the Executive have failed their responsibility, their oath of office, to abide by the Constitution.

What might help is,something I heard a pretty bright guy say re the Supreme Court, i.e. that if only some 1/2 dozen of their decisions were reversed (I particularly have the bizarre interpretation of the commerce clause of the Constitution in mind) a great mending of our ship of state could be effected.

Just because someone made an error in judgment in the past doesn’t mean the error should be carried on into perpetuity. SC justices should ALWAYS base their judgment upon the Constitution and not some prior past interpretation and decision. The wording of the Constitution is not ambiguous, but simple and clear.

Expand full comment

The Court should never balk at reversing prior decisions, decisions that are not based in the Constitution. Many believe the Constitution is a “living” document evolving over time by decisions from the Courts. This is dangerous. Just as it is would be dangerous to give the power to amend the Constitution to the President or by simple majority vote of the Congress. The Constitution can be amended, but not by the Courts nor by the President. The process for amending the Constitution is clearly written in the Constitution itself. Congress can initiate the process and so can the States. The integrity of the Constitution and its amendments as written must be defended and preserved if we are to remain as a Republic with “We the People” as the ultimate authority.

We desperately need a balanced budget amendment added to the Constitution. If we eliminated most of the unconstitutional federal alphabet agencies, then the federal budget will be dramatically reduced. Revenues could then be temporarily used to wipe out the debt, followed by a permanent reduction in federal taxes.

Not a bad idea. But the debt of the national govt is largely to private mega-banks. And every penny of that debt is entirely unnecessary when the government owns and uses the powers of credit creation ... powers now held exclusively by private monopoly banks, the "too big to fail" banks.

Let’s just admit that most if not all administrative agencies like HHS, EPA, Dept. of Ed, HUD, NIH, Transportation... need to be eliminated and the responsibilities back to the States where they belong. The Constitution is clear about limited federal Gov, which keeps the federal Gov in check.
