>Obama’s Reichstag Fire and The Coming Enabling Act
The Republican National Party has called the Democrats’ $787B “stimulus” plan rushed through Congress last week and signed by the president four days later “Barak Obama’s Reichstag Fire.”
Obama and his gang are students of history. Historians point to the Reichstag Fire that gutted the German Parliament house in Berlin on February 27, 1933 as the turning point for the Nazis in gaining enough power to pass what was called an “Enabling Act” or the power to suspend parliament.
The Enabling Act allowed for the establishment of Nazi Germany. When will things be bad enough for Obama to get his enabling act to suspend our freedoms?
Have you noticed that Obama hasn’t smiled much since coming to power? It’s all a ploy. He has done his best to make the financial crisis look insoluble by normal means. His purpose is to, first, spend as much money as possible to pay back campaign promises. That’s where the “bums rush” $787B is going.
He doesn’t want the problem to get solved too soon because a recovering country would spoil everything – his chance to enslave American taxpayers and generations to come. Have you noticed, he has held back a real stimulus bill – one Treasury Secretary Timoth Gaithner promises is still to come? There will be a second – and maybe a third — so called “stimulus” bill of trillion-dollar proportions. That will be the real bill that should have been passed first, because only then will it address the core problems of getting America back on its feet.
When you have a hostage congress, like the Democrat congress, you may not need “an enabling act” to pass freedom-stifling bills.
But Obama wants to serve more than two terms. He wants three or four or five, and that will take an enabling act, because right now we have term limits for presidents. His next act has to be to eliminate term limits. That will come when terrorists are at our door, after they fire some missiles at Washington or other American cities.
So it isn’t in Obama’s interest to fight terrorism like Bush did. He wants porous borders with Mexico, despite the fact that Mexico is near a state of total political collapse, with the drug cartel about to take over. When that happens, as it surely will, how do you keep drug cartel terrorists out of our country? You don’t, not with the cavalier way Obama, has reacted to our border emergency. Expect the Democrats to ask for an additional trillion dollars to bail out Mexico’s drug cartel government.
Whether the Reichstag fire was caused by the Nazis themselves or by the Communist Party which at that time had 17% of the German vote is unimportant for this discussion. But history repeats itself. Just as Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Omanuel called the financial meltdown an opportunity to do things not otherwise possible, Hitler’s words echo the same sentiments in 1933. Hitler called the fire a “sign from heaven”, and claimed the fire was a Fanal (signal) meant to mark the beginning of a Communist Putsch (coup).
Hitler was the Chancellor. His aim was first to acquire a National Socialist majority in order to secure his position and eliminate Communist opposition. Obama’s aim today is to create a one-party system in America and to remove the Republican Party opposition. Hitler hoped to abolish democracy in a more or less legal fashion by passing the Enabling Act. The Enabling Act was a special law which gave the Chancellor the power to pass laws by decree without the involvement of the Reichstag
The fire was used as evidence by the Nazis that the Communists were beginning a ‘plot’ against the German government. Historians disagree as to whether van der Lubbe acted alone or if the Nazis were involved. The responsibility for the Reichstag Fire remains an ongoing topic of debate and research.
Governments love to declare their countries in a “state of national emergency.” That, alone, eliminates much political opposition. But the money the U.S. is spending on the first of Obama’s rescues is meant to cement support for his re-election. The only way to get a two-thirds majority to declare a national emergency is to have 60 Senate votes. This time Obama bought off three vulnerable and very liberal Republicans, Susan Collins and Olympia Snow from Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. Specter got what he wanted out of the deal, $6 Billion for stem cell research, which conservatives and others oppose. Once again, our Constitutional rights of debate in chambers were circumvented.
Watch out, more funny business is coming. Soon, Obama will find a way to get around the Constitutional provisions making us a free people, including freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. Our voting rights have been severely jeopardized with the $3 billion going to ACORN for more Democrat style ”community organizing.” Owning guns will be next, and that will be where citizens stand in large numbers openly rebel.
The day after the fire, Hitler asked for and received from President Hindenburg the Reichstag Fire Decree, signed into law by Hindenburg using Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution. The Reichstag Fire Decree suspended most civil liberties in Germany and was used by the Nazis to ban publications not considered “friendly” to the Nazi cause. Obama has said he will not invoke the so-called :”fairness doctrine”, but don’t believe him. He won’t initiate it, but you can believe the Democrat Congress will and he will make it look like they forced him to administer this law against his will. Watch out, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hanity, Glenn Beck, Michael Medved, Neal Boortz, and Bill O’Reilly. It’s coming.
