Hour 1

Twila Brase, R.N.

Twila Brase, R.N., is president and co-founder of the Citizens' Council for Health Freedom and is a certified public health nurse. She provides commentary for the one-of-a-kind Health Freedom Minute, provides testimony at the state legislature, meets with members of Congress, and speaks around the country. She has been interviewed on CNN, Fox News, NBC Today Show, among others, and her quotes appear in publications of the Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and others.

CCHF Overview

Perhaps no topic in America has stirred as much national attention as healthcare. One public health nurse from Minnesota has a fresh take on the subject, and her organization, Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, exists to protect health care choices and patient privacy.?

Twila Brase's daily 60-second radio feature, Health Freedom Minute, takes daily health care issues and brings them to light for the American public. There is not another health feature like this one to inform Americans of critical healthcare information, in the U.S.

Americans deserve to know the agenda behind their health care and what they can do to protect their health care choices, rights and privacy. Twila Brase, a public health nurse and health care freedom advocate, informs listeners of crucial health issues, such as the intrusive wellness and prevention initiatives in Obamacare, patient privacy and the need for consent, the dangers of "evidence-based medicine" and health care reform.


CCHF's Goals

Individual patient and practitioner freedom in health care decision-making

Protection of patient autonomy and dignity through medical record privacy and strong patient consent provisions

Reduced dependency on government health care programs

Free and open health care market, including Medical Savings Accounts, and non-managed care health insurance options.

Market competition at the patient and consumer level.

Equal tax treatment for purchase of health care insurance

Privately-owned insurance independent from employment

A charitable safety net strengthened through tax incentives

Elimination of taxes on health care services.

Citizens' Council for Health Freedom's New Book 'Big Brother in the Exam Room' AVAILABLE ON AMAZON NOW!

Book by Twila Brase Exposes Dangers of Electronic Health Records and How the Government Imposes a Command & Control Surveillance System


ST. PAUL, Minn.—Third-party control. Surveillance. Data collection. Privacy invasions.

These are not words that should be associated with a visit to the doctor, but the presence of electronic health records (EHRs) intruding on the patient-doctor relationship makes these phrases commonplace in health care.

A new, groundbreaking book from Citizens' Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) will expose  how the mandated, government-certified EHR technology (CEHRT) has negatively affected both doctors and patients.

Written by CCHF president and co-founder Twila Brase, RN, PHN, and released July 11th from Beaver's Pond Press, "Big Brother in the Exam Room: The Dangerous Truth About Electronic Health Records" will show how and why Congress forced doctors to install a data-collecting surveillance system in the exam room. It also includes the impact of EHRs on privacy, patient care, costs, patient safety and more, according to doctors and more than 125 studies.

"Surveillance is and has always been a tool of control," Brase says. "That's why America's Founding Fathers put privacy protections in the U.S. Constitution as part of the Bill of Rights. However, the emergence of new surveillance-enabled technologies today—such as computers, smartphones, digital driver's licenses and biometric scans—creates new tracking and analytic powers. Unless Americans remain watchful and engaged, their freedom can be taken away, one law and one technology at a time."

The chapter titles alone let readers in on how EHRs have impacted their health care without their knowledge. "Big Brother in the Exam Room" explores how the EHR mandate became law; methods Congress used to seize control of the exam room; "meaningful use" mandates; prescription tracking; clinical chaos; burned-out physicians and frustrated nurses; how EHRs interfere in patient care; security breaches and safety incidents; how HIPAA doesn't protect privacy; black-box treatment algorithms; the timeline of federal legislation that led to third-party-payer controls; and much more.

Health care's "Big Brother" makes itself known in the exam room through the national medical-records system, national patient ID initiatives, big data profiteering, consent and coercion, government intrusion, research at the bedside, Affordable Care Act experiments, the population health agenda, and tracking Americans in sickness and health.

Greg Scandlen, founder of Consumers for Health Care Choices and author of "Myth Busters: Why Health Reform Always Goes Awry," wrote the foreword for "Big Brother in the Exam Room."

"While almost all the public discussion about health care in the past few years has centered on the regulations, subsidies and mandates of Obamacare, very little attention has been given to the foundation for the whole enterprise—the national mandate on physicians, hospitals, and other health care providers to adopt federally dictated health information systems," Scandlen writes. "In 'Big Brother in the Exam Room,' Twila Brase corrects that error and digs deeply into the history and consequences of this requirement. What she finds should alarm anyone concerned about patient safety and privacy.

"Fortunately," he continues, "Brase concludes the book with a vivid picture of how absurd all this would be if applied to any other area of the economy and provides a powerful path for state legislatures, providers and the American people to extricate ourselves from this nightmare. Our future is in our own hands—all we have to do is seize it."

Rene' Holaday - Author of "The Perils of Sustainable Development" Available on Amazon Now!

I wrote this book in 2012 and it has circulated the USA, being sold in bulk to mining groups, property rights groups, oil/petroleum groups, and freedom loving patriots nationwide. It is now required reading for the Senate-sanctioned Militia of Montana.

In 2016 a former WA State Senator personally gave a copy of my book to President Trump, which is humbling as well as a great honor! 

I have been invited as guest speaker to talk in several different states about my book and am a subject matter expert on Agenda 21 and property rights.  I have also been guest speaker on radio talk shows nationwide on these topics since 2012 until now, and currently am still being invited as guest speaker to various different groups around the State to speak on that subject as well as many other related topics having to do with water/property rights, and Public Private Partnerships. 

I believe it is crucial for our next County Commissioner to already understand all the information about Sustainable Development because it is now attempting to take over as the the backbone of our Counties.  If the next Commissioner is not fully researched on this subject, they will be making poor and uneducated choices for the residents of Stevens County for the next 4 years that will cost all of us dearly in areas of regulations, and our ability to run and conduct our businesses.  We can't afford to risk that for another 4 years!  

I can make the hard choices because I know the issues and how to resolve the problems related to those issues with the backing of the law.  I get the job done, and I tackle the tough problems head on and win.  I am the person that Stevens County needs to watch out for your rights and your best interests in a manner that is highly conservative and aligning with our traditional American values.

Liberty State Movement

Liberty State is an initiative to separate the current land mass of Eastern Washington from Western Washington to form a new state. The idea is met with geographical logic, economic stability, and popular support.

The movement to create a Liberty State is not a new concept.  However, it has recently been met with a resolve unlike nothing we have seen in modern times. A government is supposed to best represent the culture, heritage, traditions, values, and beliefs of its citizens. Currently, we are already two states on virtually every major issue of the day from water, guns, and wolves to taxes, regulations, and life.  In fact, some in Seattle say we are a bunch of "welfare freeloaders" siphoning off money from their social programs and that us "hicks" are constantly an impediment to their more "enlightened" social policies.  When both sides are unsatisfied with their representation, some things are just better apart.  Separating from the politics of downtown Seattle is popular, practical, and principled. Visit our site often – learn more, stay up-to-date, and get involved! 

Lower Tax Obligations

Government doesn't produce or own wealth - citizens do. Legislation will be held to a high standard for achieving greater results with less strain on hard working residents.

Limited Government

We will give voters greater input, provide a balanced budget, and limit executive overreach.

Economic Prosperity

Washington State burdens placed on industry, agriculture, and businesses of all sizes will be overturned. Homeowners will reagain property rights. Right of concious will be defended.

Greater Amount of Freedom

The right to manage and protect life and property will be honored at all levels of government.


A draft of the constitution for Liberty State is complete. It is currently under review by a team of dedicated individuals that meets weekly for debate.
