"A Frightening History Repeat?"... Pam Geller

    by Pam Geller

    I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied history 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 10 - 15 years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

    We demanded and then codified into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people whom we knew could never pay back? Why? We learned recently 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 10. 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 important.)

    Mr.. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change...radical 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.

    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, with 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, close my eyes, have another latte and ignore 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. But, I do not think
    I am.

    About the author via Google...

    Pamela "Atlas" Geller began her publishing career at The New York Daily News and subsequently took over operation of The New York Observer as Associate Publisher. She left The Observer after the birth of her fourth child, but remained involved in various projects including American Associates, Ben Gurion University
    and being Senior Vice-President Strategic Planning and Performance Evaluation at The Brandeis School.

    After 9/11, Atlas had the veil of oblivion violently lifted from her consciousness and immersed herself in the education and understanding of geopolitics, Islam, terror, foreign affairs and imminent threats the mainstream media and the government wouldn't cover or discuss.


  2. ***************************************************************

    Since many of you enjoy senior citizen status or will sometime in the not too distant future, I thought you might be interested in this information.


    Everybody that is on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, is getting close, or knows somebody that is.

    Most of you know by now that the Senate version (at least) of the "stimulus" bill includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former senator and tax evader, Tom Daschle, was credited today by Bloomberg with the following statement.

    Bloomberg: "Daschle says health-care reform will not be pain free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them."

    If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that Senators and Congressmen have their own healthcare plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay which they are guaranteed the remainder of their lives and are not subject to this new law if it passes.

    Please use the power of the Internet to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up in one year and nine months.
    We have the ability to address and reverse the dangerous direction the Obama administration and its allies have begun and in the interim, we can make our voices heard! Let's do it!

    If you disagree, don't do anything.
  3. Adolf Hitler was duly elected.......

    huh, that did not occur to me.

    As far as the elderly are concerned, I posted in another one of my antagonising, half serious posts that euthanasia is just around the corner. We have been desensitized to murder via abortion, and soon as resources become scarce, the logical choice is to allow and sometimes assist nature to take it's course.

    The boomers will not b able to fight what they cannot c. They no little about long term care, their children will b to harried to assist them.

    I do hope Mrs. Geller is wrong, for it is too late to stop this now. The globalists, made the mistake of allowing Hitler to attack the Jews. If he had not done that, and if he had not turned on Stalin at the time he did, Germany would have taken and held Europe. We did not win WWII as much as Hiltler lost it.

    Our markets r corrupt, our businesses r corrupt, our politicians r corrupt. Who can really help us?
  4. Uhhh, Gnome........

    The parallels between Hilter and Obama are a little skewed.

    1. Obama has no armed paramilitary force.
    2. Obama did not lose an election.
    3. Obama did not attempt to pressure the government to make him chancellor upon pain of civil unrest.

    If anything, the forces arrayed against our present government are more Hilteresque.

    1. Threatening revolution.
    2. Hinting that certain groups r arming.
    3. Hinting that these groups might take measures into their own hands, etc.
    4. Hinting that only they can keep our country safe from the Muslims, and illegals. Much as Hitler promised to halt Communism as Hindenburg was incompetent to stop it.

    The only thing the right lacks is a central figure to rally around.

    Edit: Most importantly, America has much experience at being a democratic state than Germany did at the time. The experiment in democracy had just begun there, and Hitler temporarily derailed it.

    The parallels between the Democratic Party's ideas and Hitler's are very real.

    Rights come from the state, not from God.

    Children belong to the state, not their parents.

    Internal socialism with external anti-communism.

    Business in charge of the government vs people in charge of the government.

    People are children of nature, not children of God.

    Opponents dealt with forcefully. [Since hitting the big stage Sarah Palin was investigated for ethics problems 13 times and spent a half million of her own money defending in court, was not found guilty of much of anything and her church was burned].

    HItler and his guys were completely immoral and living it up at the taxpayers expense, Nancy Pelosi uses interns to do her housework, flies in a huge aircraft, Diane Feinstein steers government contracts to her husband's company, Barney Frank's queer housemate runs a prostitution ring in the basement...

    Hitler micro managed his wars irregardless that he was never a big military figure, the Kennedy Admin micromanaged the Vietnam War from the White House...

    There is probably more to the list but you get the idea...
  6. Who did Adolf Hitler answer to?

    Who does Obama answer to?

    Think about and you'll see the two are very different.

    Adolf Hitler captured his government. Big Business and Wall Street captured ours. Politicians are merely whores or figureheads.

    You guys put too much stock in Obama.
  7. I am a student of sex. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied sex all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a sexual crisis, or a gender crisis, or a solitary crisis. Yes, these exist but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

    Point being, reading, writing, observing in the museum may create dialogue but as the author admittedly ignorant, pointed out "Change...radical change. Why?"
  8. Eight


    Why the radical change? Because "hate Bush" was repeated 24/7 for years...

    I met a guy once, somebody that knew him said his Grandparents were big money backers of Hitler from early on. Big money is behind all these people, Obama's cabinet is the most Wall Street centric one in the history of the US, George Soros was an early backer of Obama... the last politician that turned on his backers was Richard Nixon and he got the royal shaft... the last politician that opposed Big Money was Jack Kennedy and they executed him in public, on television... [and blamed the mob]
