Here We Go… Again?

Flopping Aces

by Just Plain Bill

January 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. He accomplished this by dividing the population, intimidating the public with political terrorism (using the Sturmabteilung, the “Brownshirts”), blaming every problem and misery (even a worldwide depression) on the administration in power (Weimar), and scapegoating Jews for the ills of Germany society.
 
Hitler made lots of promises to the German people to gain the trust of a small majority of the voting public. He held subsequent elections, but violent intimidation and fraud played prominent roles in each one. His Ministry of Propaganda took over all media and pushed only the narratives the Party wanted the public to believe. He exploited a tragedy, the Reichstag fire (which the Nazis may have started), to institute an “Enabling Act” which superseded all civil liberties and laws and undercut the power of the Reichstag to pass and enact laws.
 
Having used the Enabling Act to make the Reichstag irrelevant, Hitler ruled by decree. Through decree, he imprisoned those who posed a “threat” to national security. He stripped his favorite scapegoats, the Jews, of their rights. Under Hitler, the State took over and controlled where citizens worked, their wages, and their jobs. The State-controlled who citizens could associate with. The State-controlled who could marry whom. The State-controlled what lives were worth allowing continuing. The State-controlled the information the citizens could have access to.

State spending went wild. The nation was pouring money into its military because Hitler had a specific agenda of conquest. He led through an ideology of power, force, threat, and hate. Very quickly, Germany was facing a financial crisis. Hitler placated the public with free education, health care, and vacations.

In a little over 6 years, Germany instigated a world war which led to utter, catastrophic, and complete ruin for them, much of Europe, and left 80,000,000 dead.

Does history repeat itself or does it merely rhyme? Either way, the next election will be telling. If Democrats get the opportunity to pass the laws they want to destroy honest elections, eliminate the Congressional protection of the filibuster and turn the Supreme Court into a Democrat rubber stamp, even without another world war, the United States of America will absolutely face utter ruin and catastrophe. Look no further than the current situation at our border to see what this totalitarian regime is capable of when it puts its totalitarian talents to the task.

Obama: American in name only

Family Security Matters

LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD

Barack Hussein Obama is making the world safe for Islamo-Marxism.

At first glance, it would seem an improbable collaboration, but the marriage of convenience between radical Islam and Marxism, like the Nazi-Soviet Pact of 1939-1941, has a practical purpose, to destroy Western democracy.

Adolf Hitler did not want a two-front war and benefitted from Soviet resources while he attempted to crush France and Britain in 1940 before turning the full force of the German military against his ultimate enemy in the east.

Likewise, Joseph Stalin expected Germany, France and Britain to exhaust themselves in a prolonged conflict, buying time to build Soviet military strength and, debilitated by war, the Red Army would then easily march in and conquer all of Western Europe.

Both radical Islam and Marxism have a mutual hatred of Judeo-Christian democracy and a shared belief that the United States, as the cornerstone of Western civilization, is the embodiment of evil and the main impediment to establishing a global caliphate or a communist dictatorship. They have joined together in a formal conspiracy of political and social manipulation specifically designed to convince individuals that his or her actions are determined not by personal liberty, but the needs of a “community,” whose desires and rights are dictated exclusively by mullahs or commissars.

Obama is, quite literally, unbelievable

Family Security Matters

For Barack Obama speeches are not just motivational instruments or representations of a desired state of affairs, but feats of political transubstantiation, where, if he utters them, words become reality.

It is a behavior not dissimilar to Adolf Hitler maneuvering imaginary German divisions from his Berlin bunker while Russian troops rampage throughout the city above him.

Delusional is the only term that I can muster to describe the chasm that exists between the words Obama uses and the differing reality into which they are dispensed.

History Repeating Itself

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Mindful of that truth, Americans should recall what Adolf Hitler said … and proved: “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.”

New Ammo Ad Compares Obama to Commie Dictators and Hitler

Gateway Pundit

A new ad by USAAmmo compares Barack Obama to other famous tyrants.

The company defended the ad saying Obama is anti-gun and a socialist. CBS Local reported:

A gun company advertisement that warns of impending gun control compares President Obama to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

The USAAmmo ad shows side-by-side pictures of Obama with Hitler, Stalin and other dictators who committed atrocities across the world. The ad, which is also accompanied by a video, warns that gun control is imminent and foreshadows that the U.S. could face millions in casualties if they are not allowed to defend themselves.

USAAmmo states that “tyranny is knocking down the doors of American cities daily” and that Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and other gun control advocates “are secretly conspiring American Citizens of the right to bear arms.”

Trace Williams, director of operations for USAAmmo, defended the ad that was emailed Monday. He told CBS Washington that “Obama and his various czars are infringing on the rights of Americans to own guns.”

“He’s anti-gun and he’s obviously a socialist cramming health care down American’s throats,” Williams said. “That is exactly how those people in that ad rose to power.”

Obama’s Abominable ‘Respect’ for Bin Laden Burial Rites

Human Events

After approving the Navy SEALs’ mission to kill Osama bin Laden (or allowing Leon Panetta to approve it, as some reports indicate), Barack Obama has been in full retreat mode, doing everything he can to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  Most notoriously, he ordered a full Muslim burial for Osama bin Laden, contradicting his own claim that bin Laden was “not a Muslim leader.”

Even worse, when Islamic groups started to complain about the fact that bin Laden was buried at sea, rather than on land in accordance with Islamic law, Obama took pains to assure the world that the American troops involved in the burial were “respectful of the body” of bin Laden.

The Missing Link in the Evolution of Barack Obama

CHCH News

One of the problems with the idea of “American exceptionalism” is that it exacerbates a kind of complacency common to man.  This is the phenomenon whereby people often view themselves as exceptions, saying, after some tragedy, for instance, something such as “I never thought it could happen to me.”

On a national level — and this especially plagues great nations — this manifests itself in the notion that “it” could never happen here.  Oh, the “it” could be descent into tyranny, domination by a foreign power or dissolution.  Or, maybe, it could be the election of a leader who is a Manchurian candidate, a traitor within, someone bent on destroying the nation that gave him everything.  That…“it”…couldn’t happen here.  In fact, the idea is so preposterous to many Americans that, if such a threat loomed, they would never see it coming.  And they would call a person who warned of it a nut.

Is U.S. Now On Slippery Slope To Tyranny?

Tips to Dale, Thanks my friend.

Investors.com

When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics.

Such people were a valuable addition to his political base, since they were particularly susceptible to Hitler’s rhetoric and had far less basis for questioning his assumptions or his conclusions.

“Useful idiots” was the term supposedly coined by V.I. Lenin to describe similarly unthinking supporters of his dictatorship in the Soviet Union.

Put differently, a democracy needs informed citizens if it is to thrive, or ultimately even survive.

In our times, American democracy is being dismantled, piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it.
