It's hard to imagine an America where the fundamental laws of the land have been stripped away. Those founding principles that, for the better part of two centuries, made America the last bastion of true freedom in the world, so much so that millions of tired, poor, and huddled masses yearned to breathe free on our soil. These God-given rights, inherent to all men – the right to speak our minds no matter the unpopularity of our message, the right to carry a gun for personal protection, the right to be secure in our persons and possessions, and the right to be presumed innocenct and not robbed of life or liberty without fair trial – are and have been under assault for decades.
In his latest interview with the SGT Report, forecaster Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute warns of the multi-pronged attack on our liberty and suggests we are well on our way to living in a country not dissimilar to that of Hitler's Third Reich. While the signs are all around us and as clear as day to those paying attention, a large portion of our population, like that of Germany in the 1930′s, simply doesn't understand what's happening, or they bury their heads in the sand so as to avoid ruffling the feathers of the all powerful and entrenched American Police State.

The FBI is now handing out flyers to Internet cafe owners that describe potential terrorists.
Suspicious activity #1: he pays with cash. You know: currency. Pieces of paper with dead politicians’ faces on them.
An FBI advisory aimed at Internet Cafe owners instructs businesses to report people who regularly use cash to pay for their coffee as potential terrorists.

You do realise that this (the above) describes almost every ATS member.
A local activity that could indicate problems in your community.
One of the clues that led to the recent break-up of a terrorist plot was that several of the cell members were spotted celebrating in an apartment complex on the anniversary of 911.

Nazi leaders began to make good on their pledge to persecute German Jews soon after their assumption of power. During the first six years of Hitler's dictatorship, from 1933 until the outbreak of war in 1939, Jews felt the effects of more than 400 decrees and regulations that restricted all aspects of their public and private lives. Many of those laws were national ones that had been issued by the German administration and affected all Jews. But state, regional, and municipal officials, on their own initiative, also promulgated a barrage of exclusionary decrees in their own communities. Thus, hundreds of individuals in all levels of government throughout the country were involved in the persecution of Jews as they conceived, discussed, drafted, adopted, enforced, and supported anti-Jewish legislation
The Nazi Government endeavoured to unite the nation in support of their policies through the extensive use of propaganda. A number of agencies were set up whose duty was to control and influence the press, radio, films, publishing firms, etc., in Germany, and to supervise entertainment and cultural and artistic activities. All these agencies came under Goebbels' Ministry of the People's Enlightenment and Propaganda, which together with a corresponding organisation in the NSDAP and the Reich Chamber of Culture, was ultimately responsible for exercising this supervision. The defendant Rosenberg played a leading part in disseminating, the National Socialist doctrines on behalf of the Party, and the defendant Fritzsche, in conjunction with Goebbels, performed the same task for the State.
Regarding history repeating itself, there are many comparisons between Nazi Germany and the modern USA. For instance, prior to Hitler’s rise to power the people of Germany wanted a strong and charasmatic leader just like a growing number of people in the US are expressing they want today. The German economy was in shabbles just like ours is today. Hitler outlawed school prayer and in 1962 the US Supreme Court did the SAME! Hitler eliminated Christian Holidays and changed the name of Christmas to “Yuletide” just as we are in process of changing it to Happy Holidays or Winter Break. Easter celebrations were removed from schools under der Furher and in its place was placed a Beginning of Spring celebration in much the same way that we are in process of changing Easter to Spring Break. And today in the US the meaning of Christmas and Easter is lost in our consumerism because both holidays have already been turned into nothing but one BIG shopping spree!!
Hitler used the guise of cutting down on crime and safety to begin gun registration in Germany and we are using the SAME guises and doing the SAME thing
Der Furher began to gain control over the churches in Germany through intimidations and threats. Today in the US we use the IRS to do that but it’s really the SAME thing! The IRS consistently holds the threat of removing their tax exempt status if they do not conform to government dictates. Hitler was a vegetarian and an environmentalist. Nazi marriage ceremonies frequently included blessings from Mother Earth and Father Sky. Today in the US many have become increasingly radical when it comes to enivronmentalism and nature worship is growing. The environmentalists have so strapped us in already that we cannot drill our own oil onshore or offshore and we are FORCED to be dependent on the Middle East for our energy demands.
In Nazi Germany pastors quoted Romans 13:1-2 as a way of encouraging the masses to obey the Nazi Government. Today in the US many pastors use the SAME verses from the Bible to convince people that to disobey government authorities is to disobey God Himself! The verse says, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”
In Nazi Germany the German people became accepting of Socialism in order to avoid pain and MORE loss in their lives. Today in the US, Americans are rejecting Capitalism in exchange for government freebies! It’s just another repeat of history!
“In Germany the Nazis first came for the communist, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Finally they came for me, but there was no one left to speak up to.”
-Martin Niemoeller, a Lutheran Pastor who was sent to the Dachau Concentration Camp in 1938.
Nazism, fascism, and communism had a number of common denominators: an all powerful totalitarian dictatorial government which controlled all aspects of their subjects’ lives; massive numbers of rules regulations, and laws enforced by an all powerful bureaucracy; and a preoccupation with death. All three are secular humanist (a belief of worship and elevation of man versus God) to the core. All three is based on man’s rejection of God and His Authority and His Law.
* The Nazis passed thousands of laws, rules, and regulations to regulate and control every aspect of the German people’s lives – so many, that virtually anyone could be branded (or labeled) as a criminal and have their property seized, be jailed, or executed at the whim of the Nazis. Highly complex financial, currency, cash reporting, and privacy laws were passed which almost no one understood. Christians who sent money out of the country to missionaries had their assets seized and were often jailed (or worst) under Nazi money –laundering laws. Raids on homes (often in the middle of the night) by the Gestapo became commonplace, along with widespread property seizures.
The same thing has happened in America in the 1990s as the least 2,500 new laws were passed by Congress. The bureaucracy, consisting of dozens of alphabet agencies (EPA, FDA, OSHA, BATF, FBI, IRS, DEA, etc…) then write over 86,000 pages of regulations carry criminal as well as civil penalties and have led in recent years to the seizures and forfeiture of the property of roughly 250,000 Americans per year, who have inadvertently violated one of these regulations. Raids on homes by the BATF, FBI, and others federal agents (often at dawn) have become commonplace along with widespread property seizures.
Hence in the 1990s every American has become a potential criminal (just as in Nazi Germany) and is probably in criminal violation of a number of regulations at any time- and doesn’t even know it! And just as in Nazi Germany, anyone who is politically incorrect can be fingered, arrested, and jailed – or stripped of their assets. As in Germany and it is all done legally!
* The Germans in the 1930s were preoccupied with environmentalism and animal rights, with the Nazis passing all sorts of laws, rules, and regulations to protect the environment (while restricting the rights of their people) and to protect animals (wild and domestic).
America has a very similar preoccupation with environmentalism and animal rights today, with the government passing all sorts of laws, rules, and regulations to protect the environment and animal life, while restricting the rights of the people (from the wetlands, clean air, clean water laws to the Endangered Species Act and the protection of snail darters, Northern and Mexican potted owls, golden checked warblers, kangaroo rats, a myriad of insects, etc…)
There is an ominous parallel between the animal rights legislation in the Third Reich and the Endangered Species Act in America today. The Book Understanding Nazi Animal Protection and the Holocaust, by Arnold Arluke and Boria Sax, explains the Nazi perverted and occultic attitudes towards animals:
In close evaluation of prominent Nazi military and political figures, it is suggested that there was a strong affection for animals, but and equally strong enmity towards human beings…Perhaps in their twisted point of view, their dedication to the welfare of animals excused their inhumane treatment of Jews.
The most interesting facet of Nazism is the abolition of moral distinctions between animals and people. (A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.) They believed it was possible to increase the moral standing of animals and decrease the moral standing of people, thus integrating human characteristics to animals.
Immediately after the Nazis came to power, laws were passed that forbade the experimentation and dissection of animals for research. In their favor of animal protection, they even addressed the shoeing of horses and the suffering of lobsters and crabs being boiled alive.
