America in Peril Book Cover

America in Peril

By Bob Aldridge
Foreword by David Ray Griffin

Available at
Also available in Kindle edition

America is being conquered. Our Declaration of Independence has been relegated to history courses. Lulled into passivity, we take our inalienable rights for granted. Recognizing this mass complacency, a certain group recently obtained power in America. Under the guise of a “war on terror” and “national security,” they are systematically undermining democracy and scrapping our Constitution

Much ado is being made of foreign affairs – the deception leading to the Iraq war, the inexorable path of the Bush administration to subdue Iran, the “peace process” in Israel and Palestine, the dickering with North Korea over nuclear ambitions, and much more. But except for a few isolated subjects, what is taking place right here at home is getting piecemeal and sporadic treatment. That is why I was motivated to write this book.

America in Peril puts together a pervasive pattern of intrigue and deception. Starting with the characters that wiggled their way into the White House and conjured up a crisis to rally the country behind a wartime president, this book paints a disturbing picture, delving into the decay of civil rights and showing how the government is not only keeping tabs on the populace but also steadily eroding humanitarian law.

I present two possible outcomes in the final chapters. Chapter 10 plots our current path to martial law and dictatorship if we don’t wake up and control our destiny. Chapter 11 suggests how we can do that. I present a worldview that can save our country if enough perceptive people put it in motion. America is indeed in peril. The test we face is profound.

I am making no profit from this book. I have foregone royalties in order to keep the purchase price low and make the book more affordable. My sole motivation is to get open-minded people to understand the dangers we face so they … we … all of us can take corrective action. Please read this book. I’m sure you will be moved to recommend it to others. You can write reviews for publication. Put something about it in your newsletters and websites. More suggestions for promoting the book are available in How to Spread the Message. If you are interested, there is also a Group Discussion Outline. And please perform any other constructive action you can think of that will spread this message.

Yours for a just and peaceful world,

How US Elections are Rigged

As we face the 2016 presidential election the Neoconservative faction of government (Neocons) control both houses in the Legislative Branch and have the Judicial Branch comfortably packed with sympathetic judges and justices. Barring a fair and democratic election in November, they will capture the executive branch and occupy the White House. Then the Neocons' "Project for the New American Century" will be fully implemented and Pax Americana will prevail globally. (See Neoconplan).

We have already seen blatant and widespread corruption in the state primaries. That was just a warm-up. If they succeed in November the Neocons will control the entire US Government. What’s left of the Constitution will be shredded. Social change will be a fantasy. Human suffering will escalate.

This is, arguably, the most critical crisis in US history. But it can be stopped if nonviolent social change organizations exercise Gandhian flexibility by changing direction quickly, if only temporarily, for a six-month crash program to minimize election manipulation. It can be done. All necessary election fraud research is available. OSCE has published an Election Observation Handbook covering all stages of an election. We have the infrastructure in place to train observers on every stage of the election process; along with the nonviolence training they will need when confronting obstructive precinct workers (like the Texas attorney general who evicted OSCE observers). Regarding a triggering event; we have multiple wars, drones are targeting civilians, pervasive poverty persists, and refugees/orphans are homeless and hungry. Are we so jaded that this doesn’t trigger serious proactive thinking?
