Something is happening of historic proportions
ID Obama ^ | 14 NOV 2008 | ID Obama

Posted on 11/27/2008 7:16:07 PM PST by BCW

I am a student of history. Professionally. I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten - fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learn just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the 700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?). We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is medicare and our entire government, our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about)–the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x ten. And we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more imporant.)

Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: change.

Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning.

And I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully them into submission. And then, he was duly elected to office, a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media–did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . . change. And the people surely got what they voted for.

(Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.)

Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though.

Don’t forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years–a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency–it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.

Some people scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe–and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am.

I don’t think you are wrong. I’ve been telling my eldest son all this and more since before the election. Zero scares the hell out of me, because I see him as another Hitler in the making, and I am petrified for my little grandsons, not to mention their parents.

What’s happening is very simple — America and Americans now have to deal with the world in a different way.

That means competition in manufacturing, science and technology. It no longer matters if American kids are well educated because there are half a billion well educated Korean or Chinese kids who can do the same job.

At least about 1/2 the nation knows history and can see what the potential is here, that the Europeans didn’t know.

“Read your history books.”

Do they have legitimate history books in schools anymore?

That’s a big problem. Most of what I learned about totalitarianism and the rise of despotic regimes I read in Arendt’s writings, and it’s hard to believe that the mistakes currently being made in America are happening.

I’ve been warning folks of this for over 30 years. I’ve been called everything from ‘paranoid’ to a ‘rebel rouser’. Now some of these folks I warned years ago are begining to see the light.

Actually it’s quite simple. You can’t have a One World Government as long as a Constitutional Republic exists. The Constitutional Republic of the United States needs to be destroyed in order to bring about the ‘New World Order’. There were at one time 2 Constitutional Republics in the World. South Africa and the U.S. We know what happened to South Africa. Granted South Africa had racial problems but was that any reason to totally destroy the Constitutional Republic and create a Socialist Regime?

You are not alone and you are correct in your observations. That is why it is of utmost importance that we fight by pen or sword, God forbid, to preserve our Constitutional Republic.

Read my home page!
Most of the citizens of America do not comprehend what is happening to their country. The changes we see in America did not happen overnight. We hear people remark over and over “It wasn’t like this when I was a kid!”, “What is happening to my countery?”.

Obama has socialist ties, my home page tells what HAS HAPPENED!
Look at my TAG LINE!

Great comments and analysis. Thanks!

That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the 700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money?

My guess is that it went mostly to Red China and Islamist oil producing countries. They demanded their money back for those "toxic papers," or else.

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why? . . . our education system is worse than a joke. . . .

Ask distinguished professor William Ayers. It ain't no accident.

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing. . . .

I remember a few years ago reading comments from officials of the Fed stating that equity loans were keeping the economy afloat. It ain't no accident.

"Bring it all down, man."

Germany in the mid-1930s: In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets . . . [and] Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe

The MSM employees of the 1960s praised the street rabble of the day as the most intelligent generation ever. The Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party) leaders and stalwarts are the 1960s street rabble and their ideological issue. It ain't no accident.

Good article.

Americans can go passive, hold on and hope we get lucky in the courtroom prior to Jan 20, ‘09, whine, or get in the faces of our Republican politicians.

If you believe as many of us do that there is substantial circumstantial evidence that O is not natural born, I invite you to take a look at the draft on my About page. Then, I ask you to consider putting something like it on your blog for your readers to consider.

STAND UP AMERICA! The presidential election is not over!
We voted for electors, not the individual candidates. The electors vote on or after December 15, 2009. The results are then presented to a joint session of Congress and objections may be heard on January 8, 2009 pursuant to the 20th amendment and Public Law 110-430. See the letter on my About page hand-delivered to the local offices of my Republican Senators and Representatives. I urge you to take similar action, even if it is simply faxing a one page letter to Washington, D.C.

Something is happening...

Another vanity!

Somthing, in fact, many things are happening all the time. Nothing ever stops happening. If you ever get an insight into exactly what is happening, then please let me know!

Ecclesiastes 1
1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

Thank you for writing that very compelling article. It is true, the parallels with Hitler are eerily similar. Obama was created by a largely hidden force of highly motivated people who know exactly how to manipulate public opinion, and backed by a number of very rich people who were determined to elect a Marxist President.

It isn’t magic or “as luck would have it” that everything just happened to coincide at one time and all to Obama’s advantage. This has been an orchestrated accomplishment like none before; those directors also have read their history books and have applied the knowledge they learned.

Great column. I’ve been having many of the same thoughts.

This is exactly what the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution was written for. You can sit around around and wring your hands while the congress critters party on our tax money and sell us down the river, or you can get right and refuse to take their BS. At this point they are domestic enemies. They don’t do a damn thing with thoughts of service to the electorate in mind. The current crop of Congress is an absolute stain on the hollowed body of Legislative branch of our government. Granted, we have had some bad ones in the past but these folks are completely beyond the pale and only serve themselves. Constituitonly, they work for us and if they can’t do the job we should fire them and I was looking forward to the election two years from now. The problem is, they don’t want anyone showing ID at the polls to prove that they are actually Americans voting and they want as many illegal aliens as possible invading the country to help them stay in office. Let’s see, I’m an illegal immigrant, don’t have to show any ID at the polls, and the commie dems are promising me free goodies at the expense of legal working Americans...damn, I’m voting Dem!!!! The only way we’ll get rid of them is torches and pitch forks.

You really don't have a clue do you? Rich folks, nice catch phrase, but it doesn't quite make any sense the "rich folks" as you call them have as much as the rest of us to lose, by virtue of investing in businesses opening plants and making jobs if your savior actually impliments what he wants in his socialist dream.

Our enemy is apathy, allowing our ruling class in Washington to change what is America, unabated and unchallenged.

Read your history books.

Two remarks:

1) What are you? Rosie O'donnell? "Look it up..."

2) When it comes to reading your history books "physician heal thyself". If I may recommended a doubtlessly out-of-print book of about 30 years ago entitled "The Captains and the Kings Depart". It deals, in depth, the country, the people and politics of Germany from the closing years of WWI to the establishment of Nazi party (c.1918-1934).

The difference between Germany then and America now is the difference between the lightening bolt and a lightening bug.

You must not be from America if you don’t know why our wages are so high. We need our big screen TVs..and we won’t work for scraps anymore. We already did that with the agricultural and industrial revolutions. We have evolved. We have MTV and Hollywood celebrities now, and what a jackpot of wisdom those folks are..small dogs and big diamonds, and shallow relationships..what more could you want?

Actually, Chinese wages are now getting too high. You can get the same work done in Vietnam for 40 cents an hour or less.

What most Americans perceive as a hostile and aggressive environment is simply an environment in which they no longer matter as a workforce. The economics involved with the American worker just don’t make sense.

The economics involved in public education no longer make sense for most folks. Education is expensive, why not just draw from the pool of young people whose parents could afford a good education or hire someone from another country where a ton of money is poured into public education?

If you want to know what’s happening to America, it’s simple: a large percentage of the population is simply irrelevant in today’s world.

There is not a doubt in my old head that demonic powers are loose in our land, that satanic brilliance is at work on Barack Obama's behalf. How can I be so sure? ... Mesmerized crowds are not enough to be sure, but Obama's past behaviors tell us what we need to know.

While in the Illinois legislature, while a member and then chairman of the judicial review committee, Barack Obama worked to block bills which would have extended medical treatment to alive children forced by an abortionist to be born prematurely. When asked about this past work, Barack Obama's campaign--and even he specifically--tried to characterize these efforts as 'seeking to protect Roe v Wade'. [That was the Supreme Court decision allowing abortion in all fifty states, which, when coupled with the soon issued Doe v Bolton ruling, swept away any states' authority to limit abortion killing.]

Why is Barack Obama's effort to protect killing by forced premature birth then neglect of the struggling child so important in understanding the man? ... Because what Obama was seeking to do was protect a particulary demonic way abortionists were killing alive children. And it was a growing national disgrace, as evidenced by the United States Congress eventually passing a bill to stop it!

The forced premature birth then killing by neglect method of terminating pregnancy was becoming popular, particularly in abortuaries where a fetal tissue harvester was working to 'collect' tissues for research programs!

Hearings at which this demonic method of aborting alive babies was discussed focused upon two reasons for the move to abort using this infanticide methodology:

1) the not yet born but very much alive child is not killed in the pregnant female's body then extracted--hopefully getting all the parts--so the abortionists isn't sued for 'malpractice' (odd that, attaching mal to murderers and calling it 'practice');
2) by birthing the preemies at age 18 to 30 weeks then allowing them to struggle and die unattended, alone, the tissues of these just murdered children are more 'pristine for research' ... the methods to slaughter alive children in their mother's womb tend to scald, dismember, or poison the child in order to kill them in utero, and that 'degrades the fetal tissue'.

Think about Barack Obama's pleading when first asked about his work to block Born Alive Infant Protection bills: he stated in so many words that he felt allowing such personhood recognition of these prematurely delivered children would end abortion, then he corrected himself somewhat and stated that allowing these bills to be passed would severely weaken Roe v Wade and perhaps end a woman's right to choose!

What he told us with that pleading was: he is more than willing to defend infanticide--because that's precisely what this method of killing newborns is, infanticide, murder of newborns--as a means to empower himself politically! THAT is demonic. THAT is the overt face of evil in our midst!

Is Barack Obama the anti-christ? ... I would say no, he's not yet powerful enough nor has the world deteriorated sufficiently for him to be 'The' anti-christ. BUT his eager service to evil where it can empower him IS the active, working spirit of anti-christ.

Barack Obama is a very dangerous man and by some unseen influence his zeitgeist is numbing the rational attention of Americans able to vote him into ultimate power over America. Barack Obama's rise to prominence has demonic empowerment written all over it, and the hypnotic effect he has on otherwise rational people is a frightening evidence of the demonic empowerment of this man who is more than willing to protect killing newborn children as but another form of 'a woman's right to choose' ... choose murder of an alive child. [Now where have we read about such demonically inspired behavior, the sacrificing of alive children to a demonic spirit? ... Moloch ring any bells?]

A question. If these kids are so well educated why are so many bright Asian kids sitting in front of me in my class in Woodside? My class has 17 Aisian kids with less than 4 months in the USA. You would think people satisfied with their kids education wouldn’t be eager to move 12000 miles to a place that’s as strange to them as the Moon.

And I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully them into submission. And then, he was duly elected to office, a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media–did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . . change. And the people surely got what they voted for.

(Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.)

Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though.

Don’t forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years–a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency–it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.

Some people scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe–and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am.

I couldn't agree more. I pray that I am wrong too. I will work hard to protect the foundation that the founders outlined in the constitution and upholding the laws of the bible. Anything other than that is off course for me politically right now and a waste of my time as those two foundations are being attacked to the core right now and well worth fighting for. Into Action. That is where my concerns goes now. Fight for what is right and good.

"If you want to know what’s happening to America, it’s simple: a large percentage of the population is simply irrelevant in today’s world."

So true. Especially us baby boomers!

Sadly, it calls to mind that other article thread, “Goodbye America, the world’s last hope” (or similar). We’ve just got to buckle down and keep at it.

The only reason they’d keep us around at all is to pay taxes. I mean, they aren’t going to give their own money to each other, are they? I highly doubt it.

all the US has to do is cut oil demand by 25% in the next couple years by turning US trucks on the interstates from oil to gas.

That would keep oil prices way down while other kinds of non oil vehicles came onstream in the next couple years.

That would in turn collapse the US trade deficit—which would make a great rolling sea of of higher value dollars abroad which would need to be spent in the USA on one thing or another.

That would in turn enrich the US and the US would in turn buy everyone else’s products.

This is one case where I hope Karl Marx turns out to be right. In one of his more obscrure works, The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte he wrote, “Hegel remarks somewhere that all great, world-historical facts and personages occur, as it were, twice. He has forgotten to add: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.”
