The Administrative State monster lives in the local, county and school governments too.

The premise is that the federal government is irreparably corrupted, but thanks to federalist principles built into federal and state constitutions, significant governing power is reserved to the states, and to the People.
Good day Katherine,
My wife and I have been doing our best as two people and also collectively to elect such people to office. But good people seem to forget their promises to work for the welfare of the land and people who put them in office. Why is this?
Which goes to your point: One tool is closed-door agenda-setting.
I speculate there is information shared with them that we the public are not privy to. Information that destroys what now appears to the newly elected, their naive promises to the electorate. So they become supporters of the agenda secretly presented to them as seems best for the public good. After all we are are considered sheeple.
If that doesn't work, I am sure concerns for the health and welfare of the newly elected (in our case county district supervisor) person and family are shared. So in rather short order all the promises are forgotten and they are now part of the folks doing what is best for the sheeple.
The fellow we elected was a truly starry eyed candidate and perhaps naive. He was awakened some how and then forgot all he believed before. Survival is a powerful tool.
There’s also a growing public awareness of the excruciatingly broad power wielded by the unelected technocrats in the federal Administrative State: for example, the Health and Human Services Secretary and his lackeys within FDA, CDC, NIH and NIAID.
I belong to NCLA and they are working (so far) to roll back encroachment of the administrative state on the US constitution. Here is a link to current issues.
Katherine, Break well deserved. You have done truly amazing work on the topics you have listed.
I hope that as you move on to other interesting things you can keep your analyses current/updated as things change so that anyone interested can jump in and get the latest views on those compelling topics. They are masterful strokes -- want to keep them ready for use.
Thank you Katherine for sharing the governmental nuts and bolts you unearthed on your search for the truth!
May the Lord bless you and keep you, Katherine. And all of us. We are on the precipice of a grand new journey in self-governance. As my wife says, “America ... almost gettin it right since 1776!” We actually DO NOW have a real chance to do just that. But I am highly doubtful that we keep the whole nation together. Too many of our fellow citizens are severely dangerously mentally ill and apparently dead-set, zombie-like, on destroying this nation and as many of the good people of the world as possible. So thinking through jurisdictionally and territorially where and how we CAN and MUST take and hold legal and physical ground is key.
Thank you Katherine - well done, as always. Agree, the topics you listed that do not require any more work, are as clear as day. And your action proposals are very helpful. We have quite a road ahead, yet I believe there is a much much better world coming. Really appreciate your work. It's been essential for me in connecting some of the less obvious dots.

And we all have to get involved and do this.
I'm going tomorrow to start in my little town, just getting us residents
who feel and think the same way to at least agree to meet once a week in a friendly group.
From there, we will see.
But they are awake. And it is a step, albeit a small one. Been on my mind to do this.
Even if all we accomplish is to get rid of our local church pastor who is for the globalist agenda.
Good write up. Have you commented on this yet? Apologies if I missed it.
It is being bandied about and discussed on social media.
