The American government “is using its power to intimidate, prosecute and prevent government employees from sharing information about state officials’ misconduct”, insists Stephen Kohn, attorney and author of The Whistleblower's Handbook.



The First Amendment was enacted to prevent precisely what we’re seen unfolding today. People in the government witness abuses and they have a right to blow the whistle on them,” Kohn points out. “We are challenging the legal predicates that they have used to prosecute and suppress throughout this country. We are challenging them because they are illegal and unconstitutional,” he said.





I find this article pretty funny to be honest, I don't doubt that their trying to cover up the disgusting deeds the gov't has been invovled in. Americans are stubborn as it is, even if you showed them evidence of it they would still say your lieing. Seem's like everybody loves living in a fantasy world where they get walked all over. I would'nt be surprised if the U.S. gov't issued a statement telling everybody to mind their own business and that they have no right to know what's going on.

The opening statement says everything about this article:


The American government “is using its power to intimidate, prosecute and prevent government employees from sharing information about state officials’ misconduct”, insists Stephen Kohn, attorney and author of The Whistleblower's Handbook.


What better way to sell your book?

You don't have to read the book to see how the US handles its corruption being exposed, all you have to see is how they treat whistleblowers and put them on trial for doing the right thing.

Hilarious! No really, really funny stuff. Trust me when I say the easiest way to ensure you are never fired from the government is to find something to whistle blow about! Doesn't matter how incapable of actually performing your job you are, you get a free pass. Any future attempt at discipline will be met with an EEOC complaint.

The federal government in its' campaign against whistleblowers has become like the Catholic church of the middle ages - what they say is not to be questioned whether it be fraud, extortion, drugs, waterboarding, climate change, Monsanto or Planet X. Whistleblowers immediately become lunatics, pornographers, menopausal women, hoaxers and worse. How did it happen? It started when we, the people, allowed warrantless wiretaps because they were in our best interests as a security measure. Media has become a mind control method and we've devolved into a state where we no longer believe or trust our own observations.

And then you have the office in which anyone who displeases you is just outright killed...
