Welcome to this 46th episode of The Shift where your host Doug McKenty talks constitutional law with lawyer and founder of the Rutherford Institute, John Whitehead. John has spent decades defending the average American citizen against government abuse of power. His most recent book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, outlines just how difficult his job has become. In the midst of a pandemic lockdown as well as a national protest movement calling for the defunding of the police, John’s concerns about government overreach have never been so poignant. If you are concerned about living in a state of emergency, the militarization of the police and the loss of civil liberties, this episode will be of interest. What you will hear on this episode will never be presented in corporate media. Find out more about John Whitehead at www.rutherford.org. You can find out more about The Shift a theshiftnow.com.
