No one should be surprised that the US is a police state now.

The elites give campaign donations and cushy job promises to politicians that approve laws that enslave Americans.

The 1% uses the media to report propaganda that brainwashes Americans to embrace tyranny.

The ruling class distracts Americans with bread and circuses.

The elites reward anyone who supports the police state with paychecks, sales, or welfare.

Anyone who defends freedom, peace, and balanced budgets is called a nutjob or racist and gets censored, an IRS audit, arrested, or is killed.

Not quite. If it were I'd be in prison.

have you ever exposed criminal activity by those in power?

I try, but I'm not very persuasive. Mostly I'm just extremely politically incorrect, the best kind of incorrect.

While I agree that people should have information, the way to go about it is to have enough people demand it, have representatives run on releasing information, and then pass laws like the FOIA. Hacking into government computers and doing favors to foreign adversaries by releasing unredacted data dumps is definitely not the right approach. It's ironic that Gabbard, as an elected representative, is sticking up for the criminals rather than the system of representation she was elected into. There is something very off about her.

Assange never hacked any computers.

Is she defending Hillary Clinton?
