The New Fascism

Another view and correlation with modern times . . .

Kingsjester's Blog

White House Youth Corps My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II,  now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought fought with guns and bullets, But instead with state referendums Congressional votes executive orders and judicial activism.

Gustave Corbet the artist

I didn’t know this stuff, but I want to know

I thought that is would be informative to give links to the artist whose work graces all my web pages.  I didn’t know he was so popular.  When I adopted this artwork, I only knew it was public domain, but not about the artist.  So I’m giving him his credit, even if he is not alive.

HITLER IS NOT ALONE

The first several years of Hitlers propaganda was to get all people to rally around HIM.  Then it was about the hating and mistrusting Jews and undesireables. Ultimately, he took over the government and suspended the German Constitution.

The Jews (and other undesireables) were an endless number of people that he could work to death without having to pay or even feed. They went to the work camps to be worked to death for nothing.  But the first thing he did was find out where everyone that was armed was AT, where the wealth was AT, where those things he wanted that furthered his power were AT.

Then after he found out where the armed people were, he sent SS (his secret service) out to disarm everyone that he knew had guns that did not AGREE with him.  The ones that agreed with him were the ones he sent to get the guns. After he had their guns they had no way to protect themselves from being taken, killed, or whatever Hitler wished to do with them.

When Hitler became dictator of Germany, he had absolute control of all military, all decisions, of everything that the country did.  Where all the money was spent, etc . . . He could determine who lived and who died. He could determine who went to jail.

He did not like people who could protect themselves.  He especially did not like Britain. Anybody that he didn’t like was made out to be, and projected as radical, against the german people, and dangerous. He even went so far as to burn the books that spoke of freedom and the people themselves wanted.

But THIS is a new time.  If Hitler would have had the internet, facebook, news programs, networks, he could have hired, or put in place “Internet gurus, public relations, press secretaries, media influence. He actually did use media influence and propaganda, but not exactly as in modern times.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW HE DID IT, HERE ARE SOME GOOD LINKS TO THE HISTORY OF HIS DICTATORSHIP

CHECK THE FACTS

FACT CHECKING WEBSITE links and Information about the subject

I’d like to post a bunch of links to fact checking websites where you can compare whether or what is true or not. NOTE:  There is some ongoing discussion about the net about which ones are biased, and I am not yet experienced in this, so you are in the same boat that I am as to whether they are valid or not. I quit when I got tired of looking.  As always, you can contact me if you find a good link to add to this list.

About the Oath Keepers

Here is information about the Oath Keepers direct from their About Page:   http://oathkeepers.org/oath/about/

“About Oath Keepers
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders  who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. See the Oath Keepers Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey for details.”

This is the first paragraph and the rest of their bylaws are on this page.  As far as I can see, everything is according to Hoyle, and correlates to the Constitution.  And there are ten others.

“Below is a summary of the ten orders listed in the Declaration, that Oath Keepers pledge to not obey, as part of keeping their official oaths:

1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people . . . . “

How much is a Million Dollars? A Trillion? A Billion?

They talk about spending much more than these amounts (our government) They give these  amounts to other countries all the time.  They also spend more than this on stupid stuff, which is a subject for another post.  These high dollar amounts put me in supreme shock. But, nonetheless, here are a bunch of links that explain large amounts of money.  It’s hard to wrap your head around anything much less a mountain of money. As alway, if you have a blog or a link that pertains to this subject, send it to me and I’ll post it to the list on this page.  I’m wantin’ to disseminate information everywhere, like littlebittyeagle appleseed . . .

From The 5,000 Year Leap—A Miracle that Changed the World

By W. Cleon Skousen

keyThe utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of the wealth], and a community of goods [central ownership of all the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional. ~Samuel Adams (p.119)

Equal Opportunity, Liberty of Enterprise, NOT Equal Income, NOT Free Stuff

redistsocialismillustratedIn Europe, during the days of the Founders, a popular idea was that government should take from the “haves” and give to the “have nots” so that all might be truly “equal.” However, the American Founders believed that this idea contained a huge fallacy.

This entire blog is pretty darned good

PaladinHouse.com

Many of us look at our country today and wonder where the experiment in self-government went wrong. With the President’s approval rating as of an April 2014 Gallup poll of 43% and Congress’s approval rating hovering around 12% to 14%, more and more Americans are feeling disenfranchised and want to blame the Constitution as the source of the problems saying  its outdated, needs changing or should just be eliminated altogether as some die hard socialists and communists advocate.

The truth however is not that the Constitution does not work, it’s that all too often it’s just  ignored or bypassed as a matter, the politicians claim, of practicality.  The passing of the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare is a good example of this bypassing of the founders intent.

Art. I, Sec. 7 part 1 of the US Constitution states

What are the Federalist Papers and other founding documents?

There were other written documents that were involved in the founding of the United States Of America, and until I reached a ripe old age I did not even KNOW they existed!  See what I mean, I really didn’t know that stuff.  Here are some links to informatinon on these additional documents.  I will add any valuable links to this article as I find them.  Most were found from a Google search.  I firmly believe these documents tell what was in the minds of those that wrote our founding documents.  After all, they did write them, and they did it without a ball point pen or a computer.

FROM WIKIPEDIA
The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay promoting the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven were published serially in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between October of 1787 and August 1788. A compilation of these and eight others, called The Federalist; or, The New Constitution, was published in two volumes in 1788 by J. and A. McLean.[1] The series’ correct title is The Federalist; the title The Federalist Papers did not emerge until the twentieth century.

What is the Constitution Of The United States and Bill Of Rights?

I’m reasonably sure that if you asked your average school child you would not get as detailed information.  But the information is out there nonetheless.  The reason these documents are so very important, is that they are the basis for our freedoms here in the United States Of America.  And from what I’ve seen in the past years, humans of different sorts are whittling away at them at a rapid pace.  Here are some links to informatinon on the basic documents.  I will add any valuable links to this article as I find them.  Most were found from a Google search.
