Well the lesson is, if you don’t learn from history, you repeat it!
If you remember, I have said many times in the past that there is a rhyme and reason for everything that happens, and there is a very evil agenda that is being put into place by our own leadership in Washington DC; and what you need to know is the one who ultimately pulls the strings, even of the Globalist Bankers, is Satan, aka ole Lucifer, who is the Devil himself!
As far as the American Thinker article (below), all I can say is it certainly worked in pre-Nazi Germany; and I believe the enemy is revealing his hand here, because he is using the exact same tactics to try and bring our country down.
I’m sad to say, that the same weak kneed response, from the general public, that allowed Hitler to seize power, is also very evident here in America, among those, who for whatever reason are refusing to see the obvious!
At least some people are seeing the handwriting on the wall; and I can only pray that others catch on too, before it’s too late!
Let me remind you of the Apostle Paul’s admonishment,
not to be ignorate of Satan’s devices, his mode of operation!
|This is what we have to look forward to if we stay on our current path: Accused traitors in National Socialist Germany In Nazi Germany, the state had the power to arrest anyone and have him executed without due process of law.
Sometimes there were judicial formalities but for all practical purposes, the result (guilty) and the punishment (death) were preordained.
For example, consider the case of Marinus van der Lubbe, who, along with three others, was accused by Nazi officials of firebombing the German parliament (Reichstag) building in 1933, the year Hitler was made chancellor of Germany.
After being tortured by government officials, Lubbe confessed his guilt to the terrorist act and was executed. However, when the other three defendants went to trial under Germany’s judicial system and were acquitted, Hitler decreed that all future treason cases would be tried before a special “People’s Court, whose judges would be specially selected members of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
Trials before the “People’s Court” were conducted in secret, owing to “national security” concerns, and appeals to higher courts were not permitted.
One of the most famous trials before the People’s Court was that of college students Hans and Sophie Scholl and their friend Christoph Probst.
Arrested and charged with treason for circulating anti-government leaflets entitled The White Rose, they were given a secret trial before Judge Roland Freisler, chief justice of the People’s Court of the Greater German Reich, who had been sent from Berlin to Munich to preside over the case.
Since the trial was conducted in secret, Hans and Sophie’s parents were not permitted into the courtroom.
When Magdalena Scholl tried to force her way into the secret proceedings, she screamed, “But I’m the mother of two of the accused,” to which the guard responded, “You should have brought them up better.”
The government permitted Hans and Sophie to have an “approved” lawyer, but he was much too frightened and intimidated to put up any kind of real defense, not that it would have done any good anyway, given that the judge, rather than a jury, was deciding their fate.
After spunky 21-year-old Sophie said to Judge Freisler, “Somebody, after all, had to make a start.
What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just don’t dare to express themselves as we did,” Judge Freisler announced his verdict: “Guilty,” and then sentenced Hans, Sophie, and Christoph to the guillotine.
Since the defendants were not permitted to appeal to a higher court, “justice” was swift: Within four days of their arrest, German “traitors” Hans and Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst were tried, convicted, sentenced, and executed. Christoph’s wife, who had just had their third child and was in the hospital, did not even learn about the secret trial until she received word that her husband had been executed.

Don’t be fooled by Obama’s ‘incompetence’
It is a tremendous mistake to think that the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico will help convince Americans of Barack Obama’s incompetence. Obama’s true agenda is so insidious that even his inability to handle a crisis serves his greater strategy.
And that strategy has a name: it is the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Named for the two Leftist sociology professors who formulated it, its purpose is to bring about the demise of capitalism by overloading the system, largely by making more people desperate and dependent on the government.
Thus, Cloward-Piven’s goals are served by more and more aliens flooding across the border and filling jails, emergency rooms and welfare rolls. It is also served by the mortgage crisis; in fact, Professors Cloward and Piven were the creators of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), which helped pressure banks to implement the lending policies that precipitated that crisis. But Cloward-Piven seeks a financial crisis far wider-ranging and more encompassing than a mere mortgage meltdown.
So if the oil spill in the Gulf manages to destroy the fishing and tourist industries in that region, shut down oil drilling, raise the price of oil and of food all over the country, and bring more and more Americans to a financial breaking point and thus dependent on food stamps and other government programs, Obama and Co. will smile and nod at one another as the Cloward-Piven strategy hums merrily along.
Anything that puts a greater strain on government services — and the inability of those services, through incompetence and complex bureaucracy to actually improve things – advances the goals of Cloward-Piven. The more desperate and demoralized the American people become, and the more preoccupied we are with simple survival, the better our new “leaders” like it, and the closer they get to assuming total and complete control of every aspect of our lives.
Read about the Cloward-Piven Strategy in greater detail in an American Thinker article from November 23, 2009, “Cloward-Piven Government” by James Simpson.
Simpson explains that even the patently unconstitutional laws and policies implemented by the Obama regime are a deliberate part of the strategy, because in addition to using financial crises to bring about the desired changes in our way of life, it is necessary to render our Constitution impotent and irrelevant.
If you think the Gulf oil spill spells trouble for Obama, you’re just not looking at as big a picture as he’s looking at, and you just don’t realize how much trouble we’re all in.
