DAYS OF BREAD AND CIRCUSES: How America under Obama mirrors the last days of ancient Rome
Trading deserters for terrorists. Deserting Americans in Benghazi and then lying about it. Using the IRS to persecute critics. Decimating AmericaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs healthcare system and allowing VA hospitals to just let veterans die.
Millions of Americans are wondering: How exactly does Barack Obama get away with dismantling and destroying the greatest nation on earth, committing outrage after outrage, day after day and year after year?
How can a scandal-plagued president so openly and arrogantly trample the nation's laws, hobble its economy, hurt its friends and ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å shockingly ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å help its enemies without being impeached and removed from office?
Are Americans caught in some sort of trance-like state, oblivious to what is happening to them, and paralyzed from acting rationally while their nation disintegrates before their eyes?
Increasingly, an offbeat-sounding yet surprisingly insightful answer to that question is being cited: "Bread and Circuses" ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å a comparison of America in the Age of Obama with ancient Rome when the restless masses were continually bribed and entertained during the once-great empire's rapid decay and disintegration.
In its groundbreaking June issue, "DAYS OF BREAD AND CIRCUSES," WND's acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine boldly takes the theme to an entirely new level. For while America, like ancient Rome, is indeed in rapid decline, 21st century ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«bread and circusesÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å multi-tentacled government dependency combined with nonstop distraction, deception and high drama ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å is much, much more than it seems.
Many people realize the Obama administration is obsessed with increasing its power and control through promoting dependency on government with massive entitlements, handouts, subsidies and bribes, while an extraordinarily perverse popular culture entertains, influences and corrupts as many people as possible. But in "DAYS OF BREAD AND CIRCUSES," Whistleblower goes beyond conventional analysis, leading readers on a breathtaking tour of American society and showing how ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«BREADÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ and ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«CIRCUSESÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ are actually code words for two powerfully sophisticated control methods that, blended together like the two components of Epoxy glue, strongly hold tens of millions of Americans in their grasp.

"This issue of Whistleblower is a true eye-opener," says WND Vice President and Managing Editor David Kupelian. "In the deepest sense, bread and circuses ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å where politicians and 'experts' become our gods, and continual distraction and escape from reality become a way of life ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å is the diametric opposite of the two principles on which early America was founded: Christianity and liberty.
"However, in Whistleblower, after we lay out the problem, we always try to point to solutions ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å and I think the insight in this particular issue will really help readers navigate safely and sanely through uncertain times ahead."
