[This is a SPECIAL REPORT on the State of the Union. It will be presented in installments over the next few weeks. The report will be published in its entirety separately. It is an extensive look into the murder of liberty, the rise of tyranny, and the end of the age under National Socialism.]
Along these lines of manipulating and controlling agencies we can look at a page from the first, infamous, National Socialist Party to reveal a secret from the master playbook.
Although Nazi leaders were shrewd and excelled in particular areas, Hitler did not always appoint the brightest and the best. He actually sought out persons with significant flaws and secretly encouraged rivalries between them to keep them insecure and busy jockeying to protect their respective power bases. Consequently, they constantly competed for Hitler’s favor, and were always eager to please him. It was an effective leadership strategy that maintained a flux or fluid situation whereby Hitler could act decisively and quickly without having to prepare them with explanations that could tell them more than he wanted them to know, or allow them time to consider objections.
This style of leadership also helps to ensure there is no leadership challenge; something that Hitler consciously guarded against. Where else can we see this style today?
Examine for a moment the luminaries that comprise recent appointments to high office in America. It is hard to imagine assembling such a large group with such low mentalities without there having been a criterion to do so. They are probably only being told what they need to know to respond to the next forecasted, or preplanned, events.
1) Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve. Bernanke was interviewed several times just prior to the 2008 housing collapse and grilled over warnings other economists were giving, some with startling accuracy, that home prices would plummet and take the economy with it. In July 2005, Bernanke thought it was “a pretty unlikely possibility” that there would be a substantial drop in prices nationwide, and any stabilization in prices wouldn’t veer the economy off its full employment path45. Bernanke, Fed Chair, apparently didn’t see that there was a housing bubble ready to pop when there was abundant evidence housing was way over priced and that people with far less responsibility could plainly see it, and explain why it existed, before the bubble exploded.
If Bernanke is to be given the benefit of the doubt, he would look even worse than incompetent. The powers behind the Central Bank knew it didn’t matter how big the bubble got before it blew up, and actually the bigger it got the better it would be for them. Prices were artificially high, higher than they could ever reach in a real market. The behind the scenes bankers knew they were cashing in on tsunami of bad mortgages that would be insured by nothing less than a federal bailout; the taxpayers would be forced to pay the bill and cover the loses.
2) Eric Holder, Attorneys General. Holder ran a Fast and Furious gun running operation to Mexican drug lords that had nothing to do with disarming drug cartels and everything to do with disarming Americans by planting evidence to use in lobbying for more stringent gun controls. Holder has complained that Americans continue to “self-segregate on the weekends and their private lives,” and has called us: “Essentially a nation of cowards.”46 He most assuredly was not referring to black America at the time. A racist with a chip on his shoulder out to get ‘white’ America, he is incompetent and easily mislead. He may be able to tolerate Caucasians because of the sense of superiority he feels by his rank.
If Holder is to be given any benefit to the doubt, the best that can be said regarding his comment on our private lives is that the remark is in concert with programs such as the GIVE Act where government agents would apply group dynamics on the weekends to mold the citizenry. Holder is either unaware that freedom of association is guaranteed in the First Amendment’s provision of freedom of assembly and free speech, or he embraces some variant of communitarianism enforced at the federal level; a National Socialist.
3) Janet Napolitano, Secretary, Department of Homeland Security. To hear Napolitano testify on budget cuts to programs which actually do help protect flight passengers is more than embarrassing. At a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, Napolitano defended cuts to a training program, that pilots used their own vacation days and money to attend in order to arm pilots; who are the last of defense in a hijacking.47 A stoutly wooden personality herself, Napolitano sided with a fellow non-sentient object as the last line of defense: the unarmed cockpit door.
Napolitano actually testified that the cockpit door was the last line of defense for flight passenger hijacked by terrorists. How successful has that proven to be? Napolitano is presumptuous, condescending, and as is the case with most incompetents she believes she is imbued with superior perspicuity by virtue of the position she holds.
