I have always been the type of reporter that has used history as my guide for what may happen in the future. When I look at history I have attempted to do so without all of the romanticized pap that becomes the cherished myth wrapped in jingoism and nationalism. I have no religious reverence the United States, although I feel that I have healthy patriotism. I see the constitution as a guide to what is worth keeping in the United States. It is sad to see however, that rejection of constitutional values is what will cause the United States of America to die.
The United States is going to be killed in a sick form of Iatrogenesis.
What applies in the times we live in now is that old saying that those who fail to heed history and its lessons are doomed to repeat it. We must not ignore the histories of other nations and how they also have met with difficulties in the economy and what eventually happened to them. We must look at the history of the Weimar republic of Germany or the failures of the economies in Argentina in order to see what happens after economic downfall occurs within the ranks of government.
It can be now told that the moves that we are seeing by the Obama administration Mirror the same historic moves that took place in pre-Nazi Germany. The Weimer republic’s failures led to the arrival of National Socialism.
Weimar Germany has always been the example cited in the most darkest history pages of economic disasters. it becomes the embodiment of a hyperinflationary environment which was a product of a war that proceeding the Great Depression that the rest of the world had to go through tears later. What followed was an “antichrist” leader who had all of the solutions, which included a conquest of Europe and the killing of millions of Jews.
We are hard pressed to remember what happened nearly 7 decades ago? Is it so hard to remember how a country was willing to kill itself only to be reborn as an evil empire hell bent on war and bloodshed to get what it wanted? It was Ultimate power, and a new world Reich.
The same change and hope was on the minds of Germans and their leader slowly but surely dismantled the democracy for a national socialist movement. I am saddened to see that there are a lot of Americans today that think that despotism can never happen in America. Sadly it has been attempted here in America during times of financial stress.
For big business Despotism was often a useful tool for securing the foreign market and perusing profits in the past century.
In the early 20th century , one of the Marine Corps Most Highly decorated generals, Smedley Darlington Butler helped pacify Mexico for American oil Interests. He also commanded American occupations in Haiti and Cuba for National City bank, in Nicaragua for the Brown Brothers Brokerage , in the Dominican republic for sugar Interests and in China for Standard oil.
In the 1930’s General Butler’s services were sought for another mission.
A group of wealthy industrialists had been plotting to overthrow the government of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a military coup. He was asked to head up an Army of 500,000 men to do the job. He refused. It was a Nazi Plot where Wall Street interest threatened to overthrow the government. They were a front called the American liberty League and those who supported it were several major companies including Heinz, Maxwell house Coffee, Colgate, U.S. Steel, and General Motors. The Chief Organizer was Prescott Bush.
The Coup d’état is forceful way to overthrow a government. They happen all over the world. At the moment there could be a coup being planned in the United States where our form of Government is being changed to satisfy those who control the global markets using Despotism.
The unfortunate thing about the typical American is that they are too comfortable with the idea that America is too big to fail. They believe that our very form of government is immune to collapsing into a different form. That we as Americans would know full well when our government is teetering on the brink of socialism, communism, or even despotism.
As I post on social networks about warning and signs that this is the case there are always those who feel that it is an alarmist view to even indicate that this is happening. Of course there will be those who feel that whatever America does is correct because they have been duped into thinking that we as a country are blessed, or that we have the magic government that does not fail. We have been given the notion that America always wins, that we always pull through, that we have never had hostile takeovers, mini revolts, military attacking Americans, or police unlawfully invading homes and shooting unarmed citizenry in an attempt to create a sense of martial law.
In The united States there is an unhealthy propensity for the blame game and finger pointing encouraged by the media that has now become a sounding board for politics and not the sounding board for the American people. Politics and government has now become a spectator sport and Politicians become pseudo celebrities when they are servants f the people that are supposed to take their jobs very seriously. However as we have fallen into the worshipful sheep of our masters we see that many Americans want to continue their politics as usual without setting them aside so that they can understand that the rules of the game are changing at a rapid rate and that their so called elected officials will have to play within the boundaries of a new socialist global agenda. It is an agenda that has been put into play by despots that have rendered your ability to have life liberty and the pursuit of happiness useless.
America has become the ultimate sacrifice on the altar of the New World Order. We are walking to our slaughter and gradually we will transform into an ugly alien similitude of what went on before.
Despotism is so alien to the American Mind that we foolishly believe we have banned it and outgrown it, and that, like slavery, horse-drawn carriages, and smallpox, it is a forgotten relic of the distant past never to be seen again. But though it is contrary to our national mythology to say so, despotism is everywhere in human relations, if not uniform. It can appear in the workplace, in relationships and in family situations. We are so used to it than when it appears in our government we tend to accept it as a “necessary evil.” However allowing it to continue creates a whole group of problems. Many of them are now appearing in the mainstream. The inaction of the people is unprecedented.
The reason no one wants to believe that America is plunging towards despotism is because we have “image and action parameters” that determine whether or not we are in a Democracy or Despotism. We all have an image of Dictators and the horrible things they have done.
We have seen them on TV – they look Middle Eastern in turbins, they look like hobos, unshaven and unkempt. They have berets on their heads and fire their pistols over crowds. They wear boots and khaki uniforms with outrageous insignia that seem to mesmerize with color coordinated decorative tassels. They wear armbands with symbols on them and the people make gestures signifying that their leaders should be treated like roman Gods.
We in America don’t have dictators running our nation. They are nice friendly, “Christians” that wear nice suits and ties and look good on TV and speak very clear when they appear on the Tonight show or with Barbara Walters on “The View.”
This is so sad.
The problem that faces us is not the outward face of tyranny. But the subtleness of it and how people ignore it because it is not obvious to them.
We should have realized what was happening the day Barack Obama Spoke in Berlin. It was there that he wasn’t our representative, but one for the New World order. He spoke as a “World Citizen” and not as a presidential hopeful. He spoke in front of the Victory tower. Coincidentally the last major political speech made at the Victory Tower in Berlin Germany, was delivered by Adolph Hitler.
It was an odd and unpleasant venue that reminds us that one is slowly converted by the ineffable but very real power of the despot and how we have become stuck within our choices. We don’t know whether to be an unwitting victim or a fellow perpetrator. So it has become fashionable to downplay the notion that your choices are not choices at all. You have not had the time to understand what is at stake.
We have all been duped into believing in the smooth pabulum that has been created by consultants, ad agencies and spin doctors that downplay and belittle the reality of tyranny. They blind side the public with issues like abortion, immigration, and global warming. Things like constitutional rights are no longer important to the average American Citizen. Fear has determined that the constitution is a worn out document that is a death sentence.
The leaders are now deciding that it is time to put a bullet between the eyes of the United States. They have decided that the time has come for America to kill itself. It has run its course and they believe there are no Americans willing to stand up for it and save it.
