Unwinding entrenched administrative state agencies is hard, time consuming work
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.
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:
• “A Mostly Peaceful Depopulation” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/a-mostly-peaceful-depopulation)
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.
Updated with new section at the end focusing on financial COI and administrative state-corporate linkage at CDC and NIH.
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.”
Well I can’t wait to see Part 2 as Part 1 is particularly depressing.
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 only got through the first paragraph when I was seeing past actions like you describe turning into even more worse case scenarios. The 'Shah', and so much more. Magical thinking is exactly the phenomena. Thanks for enlightening us about the short view. / As I continued to read, this must be an instructional piece dedicated to our knowledge. Thank you for the intricate, complicated look into the inner workings.
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.
Bravo Dr. Malone!! This hyper-informative essay deserves a Pulitzer!
That is the best synopsis I have read of the "deep state" as it relates to the decisions around Covid Policy. Here is hoping the Judiciary and a new President in 2024 can deconstruct this force that appears to me increasingly pathological and destructive to the country and our people.
I, for one, will admit I had no idea of the magnitude of the problem that is the Deep State - until COVID came along.
Thank God for the Supreme Court.
They all need to be disbanded. Start over. Dead serious.
If the problems of self-governance are a lack of money, then by all means we should explore alternatives to the private banking cartel to whom each of us and our governments are perpetually indebted... a debt to a privately owned international banking system. #LocalPublicBanksInstead
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.
