How a dictator rose to power, TAKE NOTE!

Is history repeating itself?  You be the judge.  Here are some facts -- all facts that you can verify on the 'net for yourself.  Fellow U.S. citizens, we must pay attention, be ever vigilant as our Constitutional rights are all under attack.  This is not a test . . .

During Hitler's rise to power he used a private army he called the Brown Shirts to intimidate opponents. He had to be careful in doing this because he wanted and needed public support. The use of fear really came into being just days after he became Chancellor in 1933. He had the Reichstag burned down then used the "emergency" to seize complete control. He then outlawed the Catholic and Communist political parties, his chief opponents, and arrested their leaders. His Brown Shirts launched into a reign of terror, arresting, beating, even killing random people across the nation. By law none could be held to account. The purpose was to "re-educate" the population, to cow them into submission so they would not dare stand up to the regime.  It worked.



Hitler controlled Germany in many ways after he became chancellor in 1934. He used propaganda effectively, using his SS and Gestapo as enforcers. Using the "Enabling Act" which he pushed through after the Reichstag fire, Hitler was able to pass any new law that he wanted.  He got rid of ALL his political opponent by turning Germany into a ONE party state -- the Nazi State . 

Hitler's use of propaganda, putting Josef Goebbels in charge of organising "Hitler over Germany", gained him more supporters as people saw nothing and heard nothing -- except whatever Hitler wanted them to see and hear.

The SS and Gestapo put fear into Germany, by performing killings. They were trained to shoot people without giving any second thoughts. Hitler used the Gestapo to interrogate the German people, and they sent many of Hitler's enemies to concentration camps where they were put under the mercy of the brutal SS.

Hitler also got rid of all priests in churches, as he thought that they were spreading anti- Nazi beliefs. He got rid of them and put his own men in charge of them instead. Political opponents went to concentration camps or prison as political prisoners, opponents in the Army were given postings in North Africa and then later in Russia on the Eastern Front, social opponents were suppressed by the police or arrested & sent to concentration camps.


To control the minds of the young of Germany, Hitler made the "Hitler Youth". This was like boy scouts. Boys there were taught under the Nazi Racial Ideology, and learned about Nazi history.



The interesting thing about Nazi Germany was that with the socialisation of people towards Nazi life, there was little outward resistance, but there were lots of underground movements & a niche society developed -- people conformed in public & rebelled in Private

As a form of government, National Socialism is totalitarian in character aiming at the total control of all politics, economy, social relationships and thought, by a small group which claims to understand how to cope with all aspects of human existence.
The word "Socialist" in the name of the Nazi Party did not refer to the nationalization of the means of production but rather to requiring the economy to serve the interests of the Party.

Hitler succeeded in reducing unemployment by initiating public works projects, including the construction of superhighways (autobahns), and establishing the Labor Service to provide jobs for young workers who could not find employment in the private sector. In 1936, the Four Year Plan was launched with the purpose of promoting economic self-sufficiency and of mobilizing the economy for war.

But Hitler loved children, didn't he?


 
 
 
Right.

A HISTORY LESSON

Hi Folks,

How about a little history lesson. Since we are always hearing about history repeating itself, here are a few facts about one of the most heinous despots in history. These are not presented with the intention of comparing with anyone else, just for information only. This will help us understand how Hitler conquered almost all of Europe and Western Asia. Hitler was a Socialist. If you happen to see any of these happening today in The United States, maybe we better start worrying. Here goes:

Hitler had a DEEP dislike for Jews.
Hitler was a great speaker that energized his base.
Hitler alienated the opposition, causing mass division.
Hitler took over the country's leading auto factories.
Hitler promised massive entitlements to his base.
Hitler promised jobs for everyone, and failed miserably.
Hitler was into symbolism (swastika, skulls, lightning bolts, etc.)
Hitler had a "god" complex.
Hitler was raised in a country other than the one he ended up leading.
Hitler hated capitalism and preferred socialism.
Hitler was deeply ingrained with propaganda.
Hitler nationalized health care, banned guns, and banned free speech.
Hitler was put in power by bullying, deception, lies and threats.
Hitler declared the right to order any dissident to be arrested or killed.
Hitler was adored by those who didn't listen to him.
Hitler declared himself to be the savior of his country.
Hitler changed his predecessors history to suit his agenda.
Hitler promoted dissension within communities.
Hitler censored and controlled the media.
Hitler's father abandoned him in his youth.
Hitler used drugs.
Hitler wrote autobiographical books which was used as propaganda in his elections.
Hitler was TIME's man of the year.
Hitler used the unions to gain power.




One of the very first things Hitler did was to confiscate all privately owned guns.



Now you can take these facts and do what you will. Me, personally, am afraid for our country. Although I don't own any guns, I'm seriously contemplating the purchase of one. Maybe we should all do the same. I fear time is short and you can call me any names you like, it won't change the facts. We are in trouble.

Those who ignore history are destined to repeat it.

DRONES, DRONES, WHO'S GOT THE DRONES

IS THERE A DRONE IN YOUR LIFE?  You bet there is. In fact there are approximately 30,000 in the United States right now.

STEAMROLLER ALERT -- Big News -- A memo leaked from the DOJ recently made it perfectly clear that Barack Obama and his Big Drone Eric Holder thinks that the government-sanctioned killing of American citizens without warrant, without any defense attorney, without any evidence presented in any court is now "legal" -- and that does include the use of drones to do so. Already been done overseas, taking out alleged terrorists who held American citizenship, but how about the use of drones in the skies of the United States of America? Let's check out a few facts about the "military drone" and its use, now being condoned for domestic use against taxpaying citizens of the USA:

Surveillance drones or unmanned aerial systems (UAS's) raise significant issues for privacy and civil liberties. Drones are capable of advanced surveillance, and drones already in use by law enforcement can carry various types of equipment including live-feed video cameras, infrared, heat sensing, radar and phone tapping capabilities. Let's not forget stinger missiles and other weaponry we haven't heard of. How about Gatling guns, you remember those little buggers from Viet Nam. Maybe a sniper rifle with a sophisticated aiming system. Remember Ruby Ridge and Waco? Do you think the government would have used them then? Don't you doubt it for one minute.

Some drone models can stay in air for hours or days at a time, and their high-tech cameras can scan entire cities, or read a milk carton from 60,000 feet. They can also carry wifi crackers and fake cell phone towers that can determine your location or intercept your texts and phone calls. Drone manufacturers even admit they are made to carry "less lethal" weapons such as tasers or rubber bullets.

Thanks to a provision in the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, the use of drones right here in the United States is about to explode over the next few years. The Act includes provisions to make the licensing process easier and quicker for law enforcement, and by 2015, commercial entities will also be able to apply for drone authorization. How about your employer watching you from a drone? Possible.

Here is the list pulled from the depths of official FAA records, thanks to the Freedom of Information Act. This is a long list is of those already authorized to operate drones in the United States of America. Guess we'd all better be careful now. BIG BROTHER IS ALREADY HERE, watching us, whether we like it or not. Approved by Big Government and considered legal by our current White House Administration.

History IS repeating itself!

11 Points Of Comparison Between Life In The United States And Life Under Hitler From A Woman Who Has Experienced Both

 
By Michael, on May 18th, 2010, of Project Shining City https://www.youtube.com/results?rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENUS265&q=kitty+werthman&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=w1




Have you ever heard of Kitty Werthmann? She was a child when Adolf Hitler took control of her beloved country of Austria and stripped away their freedoms, and she is now speaking out about the chillingly similar loss of freedoms that we are currently experiencing in the United States. It is often said that "those who forget history are doomed to repeat it". So, perhaps we should listen very carefully to what Kitty Werthmann has to say. She has been there. She has lived through it. The truth is that when you do sit down and compare what happened under the Nazi regime and what is happening in the United States today, the parallels are absolutely shocking. The American Dream is not guaranteed for us or for our children. Freedom must be guarded. If not, it will be taken away. In fact, our freedoms are already being stripped away at blinding speed, and once they are gone they are incredibly difficult to get back.

The quotes from Kitty Werthmann that you will read below come from her excellent article entitled, "America  is the Greatest Country in the World."  We hope that you will take the time to read that entire article after you read this one. Sometimes it is really important to get some historical perspective in order to understand what is happening today. The following are 11 points of comparison between life in the United States and life under Hitler from a woman who has experienced both….


#1)  Severe Economic Crisis
Kitty Werthmann describes the economic conditions just before Hitler took over this way….

In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates. Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily.

#2)  Election Of A Wildly Popular Leader
I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide 98% of the vote. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

#3)  An Obsession With Law & Order
After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order.

#4)  Women Were Taught That Work Was More Important Than Family
Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

#5)  Children Raised In Daycare Facilities
When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

#6)  Christianity Drubbed Out Of The Schools
Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles, and had physical education.

#7)  Socialized Healthcare
Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

#8)  Government Handouts Became A Way Of Life
As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

#9)  Oppressive Government Regulations
We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business.

#10)  Gun Restrictions
Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

#11)  Lack Of Respect For Life
In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

We would be incredibly foolish not to listen to the wisdom of Kitty Werthmann. She saw what kind of horror is created when God is pushed out of public life, and the government becomes the new "god".

But that is what is happening in the United States today. God has been pushed aside. Suddenly the government is the answer to all of our problems: the provider of all of our needs, and the regulator of every single detail of our lives.

We are marching down a very dangerous path. It is a path that many nations have gone down before with absolutely disastrous consequences.

Americans have to wake up. Please send this information out to as many people as you can. If we will not speak out about the need to protect our freedoms now, we will not have the chance to do it later.
 

Like most of us do with these kinds of forwards, I was ready to assume it was fake or misattributed and move on. Snopes itself was still researching the matter, listing it as "undetermined" as of January 6, 2013. But to my surprise, both the email and Kitty Werthmann are perfectly real. She did live through the Nazi occupation of Austria, and since emigrating to the US in the 50s, she’s given hundreds of speeches, written a book, produced a DVD and made television appearances, all in the service of spreading a laudable message that must be repeated, lest it ever be forgotten.
 

Please watch this video with your family and please pass it on to everyone you know.
