02 May Latest Book Review of The Devil Inside the Beltway by Josh Kaib
You may think the government is on your side. You may think they wouldn’t try to destroy a man’s business–his livelihood–for all the wrong reasons. But you’d be wrong. There is a devil inside the beltway, and he could be coming for you next.
The Devil Inside the Beltway is more than just a book. It’s even more than the story of one man’s fight against tyranny.
More than anything, it is a warning: this is what happens when you let government get too big, too powerful, and too involved with our everyday lives.
As someone who investigates government actions on a semi-regular basis, one part of the book particularly stood out to me. In 2012, Daugherty filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to further investigate the connection between Tiversa and the government.
Like many others who have filed FOIAs, he ended up with a disappointing amount of information. It was bad enough that the government was going after LabMD, but at least they could have been transparent about it.
If you have the chance, pick up The Devil Inside the Beltway and give it a read. It’s a thriller, true crime novel, dystopian epic, and political discourse all rolled into one. But above all, watch out for the devil inside the beltway and pray he doesn’t come for you.
