America, The Fourth Reich
The federal government passed a "gun-control" law
(the Gun Control Act of 1968) based directly on the Nazi law
that Sen. Thomas Dodd had the Library of Congress translate for him.
This Nazi law was then signed by President Lyndon Johnson
In October of 1942, under the Trading With the Enemy Act, the U.S.
government halted operations at New York's Union Banking Corporation.

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield
the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of

its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the
lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the
leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a
simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a
fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger."
~ Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II
"Restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of
opinion, including freedom of the press; on the rights of assembly and

beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed."

NAZI GERMANYíS WAR ON TERRORISM
Hitler used the 1933 burning of the Reichstag (Parliament) building by
a deranged Dutchman to declare a war on terrorism, establish his
legitimacy as a leader (even though he hadnít won a majority in the
You are now witnessing the beginning of a great epoch in history, he
proclaimed, standing in front of the burned-out building, surrounded by
national media. This fire, he said, his voice trembling with emotion,
is the beginning. He used the occasion a sign from God, he called it
to declare an all-out war on terrorism and its ideological sponsors, a
people, he said, who traced their origins to the Middle East and found
motivation for their evil deeds in their religion.
Two weeks later, the first prison for terrorists was built in
Oranianberg, holding the first suspected allies of the infamous
terrorist. In a national outburst of patriotism, the nationís flag was
everywhere, even printed in newspapers suitable for display.
Within four weeks of the terrorist attack, the nationís now-popular
leader had pushed through legislation, in the name of combating
terrorism and fighting the philosophy he said spawned it, that
suspended constitutional guarantees of free speech, privacy, and habeas
corpus. Police could now intercept mail and wiretap phones; suspected
terrorists could be imprisoned without specific charges and without
access to their lawyers; police could sneak into peopleís homes without
warrants if the cases involved terrorism.
To get his patriotic Decree on the Protection of People and State
passed over the objections of concerned legislators and civil
libertarians, he agreed to put a 4-year sunset provision on it: if the
national emergency provoked by the terrorist attack on the Reichstag
building was over by then, the freedoms and rights would be returned to
the people, and the police agencies would be re-restrained.
Within the first months after that terrorist attack, at the suggestion
of a political advisor, he brought a formerly obscure word into common
usage. Instead of referring to the nation by its name, he began to
refer to it as The Fatherland. As hoped, peopleís hearts swelled with
pride, and the beginning of an us-versus-them mentality was sewn. Our
land was the homeland, citizens thought: all others were simply foreign
Within a year of the terrorist attack, Hitlerís advisors determined
that the various local police and federal agencies around the nation
were lacking the clear communication and overall coordinated
administration necessary to deal with the terrorist threat facing the
nation, including those citizens who were of Middle Eastern ancestry
and thus probably terrorist sympathizers. He proposed a single new
national agency to protect the security of the Fatherland,
consolidating the actions of dozens of previously independent police,
border, and investigative agencies under a single powerful leader.
Most Americans remember his Office of Fatherland Security, known as the
Reichssicherheitshauptamt and Schutzstaffel, simply by its most famous
agencyís initials: the SS.
And, perhaps most important, he invited his supporters in industry into
the halls of government to help build his new detention camps, his new
military, and his new empire which was to herald a thousand years of
peace. Industry and government worked hand-in-glove, in a new type of
pseudo-democracy first proposed by Mussolini and sustained by war.
Do any of these characteristics below appear to be happening in America since 9/11?
Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism
By Dr. Lawrence Britt
Source Free Inquiry.co
Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler
(Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and
several Latin American regimes.
Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:
1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant
use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia.
Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and
the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human
rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look
the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations,
long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are
rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived
common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals;
communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread domestic problems,
the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the
domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost
exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are
made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state
is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.
6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the
government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government
regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship,
especially in war time, is very common.
7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the
government over the masses.
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend
to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public
opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders,
even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the
government's policies or actions.
9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a
fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power,
creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only
real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated
entirely, or are severely suppressed.
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and
tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for
professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression
in the arts and letters is openly attacked.
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are
given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to
overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism.
There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed
by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government
positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from
accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and
even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete
sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even
assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting
numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist
nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.
