A Disturbing Parallel

All of us know about world war 2. But few people seem to know much about what Germany was like shortly before the war. The parallels between pre world war 2 Germany and modern day America are disturbing. On February 27, 1933 the Richtag building (parliament or capitol building) was set on fire. The fire was blamed on a man found at the scene named Marinus Van Lubbe, a young unemployed bricklayer, and a Dutch communist. To this day, its still a debated topic regarding whether or not he was actually responsible for the fire. There are many who claim it was a false flag operation carried about by members within to Nazi party to further their agenda. Whether or not it was actually Marinus Van Lubbe or the Nazi party, the fact is, this event was used to support the Nazi’s claims that the communists were plotting against them, giving them an excuse to expand the power of the state. Immediately following the Richtag fire was the signing of the “Decree of the reich president for the protection of people and state” also known as the Richtag fire decree, which stripped the German people of many of their civil liberties. The decree was used as a legal basis to round up and imprison anyone considered to be opponents of the Nazi party. Right after that was the signing of the “Law to Remedy the Distress of the People and the State enabling act”, more commonly known simply as “the enabling act” which gave Hitler dictatorial power. He could create laws by decree, and those laws could not be challenged by any other part of the German government. Following that was the establishment of the national police force known as the gestapo. It was originally put together by Hermann Goring, number two man in the Nazi party. Over the period of a few years, all local law enforcement agencies in Germany were brought under national control by the gestapo. Throughout the following years. The gestapo was used to suppress dissent among the population. Anyone who openly opposed Hitler and the nazi party’s agenda were labled as enemies and traders. Many people were rounded up and disappeared under what was called schutzhaft, or protective custody as they called it. A power they gave themselves to detain a person indefinitely without judicial proceedings. All these things were done in the name of “national security”.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Modern day America. The false flag 9/11 events happened. Soon after, the PATRIOT act was passed by congress and signed by war criminal and trader George W Bush. The obscenely named law is from start to finish, an act of treason against the constitution of the United States. It’s a direct assault on our rights recognized by the bill of rights. Through the PATRIOT act, the government has granted itself the power to search a person’s private property or financial records without the consent or knowledge of the owner, the power to spy on citizens via telephone, email or any other electronic communications, the power to indefinitely detain anyone without charging them with a crime, without allowing them legal council, or being able to face their accuser. In such a situation, the person could even be labeled an “enemy combatant” in which case he/she could also be subjected to torture, or as they call it “enhanced interrogation”. This can all be done to a person on the accusation of being associated in any way shape or form with terrorism. Can you really say with a straight face that you trust them with that type of power? Also shortly following the 9/11 attacks was the formation of the department of homeland security, a federal agency tasked with protecting America from “terrorists”. Over the past years, the DHS has been gaining more and more control over local law enforcement. They have given them military type training and taught them to label constitutionalists, gun owners, libertarians, Christians, pretty much anybody who represents traditional America as potential “domestic threats”. The feds are also providing local law enforcement with mine- resistant armored vehicles. Don’t believe me? Go down to 1205 Dart street in Houston Texas and see what you find parked in the back. These are the same vehicles being used in war zones overseas. They have no practical purpose in daily policing activities. They are vehicles of war. Thats the only purpose they serve. So what are they doing on American streets? Who do they plan on having a war with? All these things are done in the name of “national security”.

In addition to that, several people who have challenged the feds on their unconstitutional power grabs, and people who simply knew too much have been viciously attacked. People like Gary Web, Aaron Swartz, Michael Hastings, Deborah Palfrey, Beverly Eckert, Phillip Marshal (and his two kids) were all murdered by our federal government, and the incidents were made to look like suicides or accidents. Don’t take my word for it. Look those names up for yourself.

The United States of America as most people think of it doesn’t exist anymore. Things like this dont happen in a free country. A militarized police state is being built around us. And dont think for a second that just because you personally haven’t been a victim of it means it doesn’t exist. We are living in 1930’s Germany. We’ve seen this movie before. We know how it ends. Do we want to keep going down this path? As long as the majority of Americans continue to be more concerned with how well their favorite sports team is doing instead of the prison thats being built around them, this problem with get bigger and bigger until it eventually consumes us all.

My outlook on the future is pessimistic. The deeper down this rabbit hole I go, the more I believe that our country, both government and citizenry is so far gone that theres no possibility of saving it. It makes me sad to admit, but thats what I see. The best I think we can do is brace for impact. The level of cushion we have against the impact will be based on the actions we take now. As I’ve said before, you must arm yourself with knowledge, it is both our shield and our sword. It’s the most powerful weapon in our arsenal. If we are aware of whats happening around us we have a better ability to prepare ourselves. Hopefully when the dust settles, we will be able to hold accountable the people in our government for the crimes they’ve committed against us, similar to the way the German people brought justice to the nazi party during the Nuremberg trials. The famous defense used by those on trial in Nuremberg was “I was just following orders” that excuse didn’t fly then, it isn’t gonna fly now. Put down the TV remote and pick up a book. Becoming educated takes time. The time is now. Right now. If you wait until the shit hits the fan, your gonna be too late.

The Constitution of the United States: The most important and most ignored document in our country

WE THE PEOPLE of the united states, in order to form a more perfect union,establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense,promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.

Those powerful words are the introduction to our constitution. The constitution outlines the responsibilities of the federal government. It lists specific obligations to be upheld to support the union. It also specifically lists certain things which the government shall NOT do. The constitution not only outlines the responsibilities of the government but it also outlines our rights. Some people misunderstand this to mean that the constitution gives us our rights. I shake my finger while i say no no no. Its important to understand that the constitution does not give us our rights. If this was the case then that would mean that the government has the right to take them away. Its important to understand that our rights were given to us by our creator, as mentioned in the declaration of independence; All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. Whoever you believe your creator to be, whether it’s god or buddha, or allah or whoever. you are born with your rights. The constitution simply highlights them with language intended to serve as a warning to government to make it clear that they are not to even attempt to take them away.

Today both people in government and ordinary citizens have forgotten the basic function behind the constitution. It is the chain around the neck of the government which keeps it in check, and protects our rights in the process. The federal government is not the ultimate authority. The only powers it has are that which we have granted to it through the constitution.

Here is an example of how the government used to respect and abide by the constitution back in the day, compared to the way they totally ignore it today.

In the year 1920, alcohol was banned by the government with the ratification of the 18th amendment. And then in the year 1933 the ban was lifted with the ratification of the 21st amendment, which repealed the 18th amendment. Now lets think about this for a minute. It took a constitutional amendment to give the government the authority to ban, to criminalize the possession, manufacture, and transportation of a certain substance. And it took another constitutional amendment to reverse this ban. This goes to show that this was back in a time when a little of the spirit of the founders still lingered in those who served in our government. They understood and at least still partially respected the fact that the only authority they had was granted though the constitution. And they went though the proper process to achieve that end. Fast forward to modern day. Can anyone point out to me the constitutional amendment which grants the feds the authority to criminalize street drugs? How about the amendment which grants them the authority to make gun regulations? hmm… you cant can you? because they dont exist. Dont misunderstand me. I dont support the use of street drugs. The point I’m making is that the government, at the federal level, doesent have the authority to criminalize or even regulate it. These are issues that should be handled though the state legislators. Lets remember the tenth amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States through the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. Lots of things these days that should be handled exclusively at the state level are dictated by the feds. And the problem has spread beyond congress. Lots of the federal agencies like the ATF, IRS, and EPA create their own laws which they expect us to abide by. And they will lock us up and/or shut our business down if we dare disobey. Let us now remember article 1 section 1 of the constitution; All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress of the United States, which shall consist of a senate and house of representatives. I dont see it saying anything about the ATF or EPA or any other federal bureaucracy having legislative powers. Maybe theres some pages missing from my copy of the constitution here… hmm

There are so many federal laws today that the average person commits 2 to 3 federal crimes every day. Have you ever connected to an unsecured wifi internet connection? maybe your neighbor in the apartment next door doesent have a password set up on his internet and you connect to it on your laptop to surf the web? third degree felony offense at the federal level. Have you ever taken prescription medicine that isent prescribed to you? example:

your working in the garage and you drop something on your foot. It hurts like hell and you just want something to ease the pain. So you go in the medicine cabinet and take one of your wife’s vicodin. Ever done that? Also a federal offense. They use this strategy where they make everyone a criminal, then use elective enforcement to shut down their political opposition.

They have been ignoring the boundaries of their authority for long enough. We have to start fighting against unjust laws. By complying with them, we are aiding the system and allowing it to continue. If your ever charged with an unjust crime, fight it! dont make any plea deals. Demand a trial by jury. Bring to light the fact that the law itself is null and void. Make your case as public as possible. Draw attention to it so that others know they arent alone. This isent a silver bullet but its a start. We are never gonna take our country back if we continue to be timid, keeping our heads down, and going along to get along. Its time to get loud, get in their face and remind them who we are and who, according to our founding documents has the real power. WE THE PEOPLE!
