The Fascist Playbook is Being Repeated Now

 

There is a reason why the modern education system no longer teaches Civics or History and the classes they teach in these areas are tainted and deceitful. They decry the Founding Father of the United States as slave-owning white-privileged oppressive supremacists. They teach that the Constitution is not specific in its wording and must be interpreted for the modern age because they could not have imagined telephones and cars and jet planes and modernity. The Constitution is outdated and must be replaced with modern ideas. These ideas are the liberal playbook with the rules which are now ruling many universities. Ask students in many universities about the First Amendment and its guarantee of freedom of speech and you will hear that free speech is outdated and needs to be limited as much speech needs to be banned as some thoughts need to be silenced and no longer permitted. As the indoctrination system continues to replace education the rest of the Constitutional rights stipulated in the Bill of Rights will be eroded until they will disappear totally from the codes within the American culture. But the reasons go deeper as without knowledge about the true history and the processes used by previous totalitarian takeovers, it allows the opening for it to be repeated yet again. George Santayana was dead on correct when he stated that, “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

 

What history is the United States heading towards at a breakneck speed has struck many places before throughout human history. The technique has been utilized repeatedly and the first signs are already appearing. The initial step is for small bands of the party which is seeking permanent power to foment distrust and the legitimacy of the governing system. They claim that elections are tainted and that the current office holders fixed or tampered with the election often by using outside assistance from a perceived enemy power. This is followed by violent demonstrations which begin as localized often in areas controlled by those seeking to realize permanent power. The protests continue and soon become an expected and almost routine occurrence mostly in the largest cities. The authorities tend to allow the protests and allow some degree of violence which unfortunately is permitted. The criticism of the leader, the president, monarch, prime minister, any elected or appointed leader simply to denigrate respect for the ruling government is one of the main tactics utilized for overturning a government. Claims will be continued that the elections were rigged and there will be calls for a new election or simply the placing of a new appointed leader. The protests will grow and the attacks on the government will grow more and more pointed in the media controlled by the subversive elements. They will demand their rights while silencing all opposition. Much of the original demonstrations and violence will emanate from the Universities where the administrators and professors will be seen to stoke the emotions and lead the students to believing they are rescuing the nation from interlopers. This will continue to grow and soon the violence will become far more disruptive. This is when the escalation will become serious and those who have been planning the coup will start the real disruptive behavior even to the point of disrupting life for regular people who have nothing to do with the protests or the government and are just trying to get on with their lives.

The protests get to the point where people can no longer live their lives or the government needs to crack down and this brings forth accusations that the government is oppressing the people and must be replaced. There will be increasing attempts at disruption and the masses of protesters will become more difficult and violent sending raiding parties armed to fight when a new group will arise from the opposition of the ruling party promising they can end the rioting and demonstrations if only they are granted their rightful place as leaders of the government. They propose a new governance where they are granted extrajudicial powers and absolute power. These will be the leaders of the protests but will have remained removed from the protests and far from the violence. The people will be desperate and will demand new elections and will give this interloper and their core group the powers they demand. They will then turn on their own protesters, especially the rioters as they are considered expendable and actually now a danger to their maintaining power. They will send shock troops out and those who lead the rioting will be killed as will many of their followers and once this purge has been completed there is a new government and elections are a thing of the past. The new government is all about order and ridding the people of those who were truly responsible for the revolution which they saved the people from. The problem is it was their revolution from the start and it was executed just to give them power. This brought Generalissimo Francisco Franco to power, Benito Mussolini to power, Adolph Hitler to power and was how Lenin took power and Stalin after him. This has been the playbook of the fascists throughout history and it will be no different today because the youth they will use to take power never learned from the history they were never taught. The warning signs are all there but there are so few who will see them and those who will are those old people who are so stupid and from back then in the evil times and know nothing. That is how they will be excused and there is a distinct possibility that the older people will be rounded up and placed where they can be taken care of by the new government for their own safety.

 

There will be another casualty this time just as it has always been. The Communists despised these people. The Nazis despised these people. This has been the target for elimination by every totalitarian system since Rome. These people have survived despite near constant persecution and have gained a strong ally in the past few centuries. The originating principles came from Judaism and were preached in early Christianity before Christianity was politicized. Rome took Christianity and for almost fifteen-hundred years the Church was used as a weapon against the people. The Church lorded over the people often warring with Kings for power. The scientific revolution and industrial revolution brought new ideas of empowerment for the people initially out of England then Europe and finally making a permanent statement in the United States. Christianity reluctantly accepted a separation between the Church and political power. The unfortunate thing and the central problem is there are still those who seek ultimate and complete power and wish to subjugate their fellow people. Those seeking such power believe they know what is right and what is wrong and only they have the true understanding and thus must be placed over the rest of humanity. They also cannot allow for the Judeo-Christian ethos which believes in the nobleness of humanity and that people should have the power over their own lives to survive as it poses a direct threat to their power. This is the reason they do not believe in freedom of speech and they will not allow for religion as it is understood in the developed world because religion believes and promotes the moral character with respect for the other and for the rights of all. The fascist only believe in their superiority and their all-knowing ideas of what constitutes a perfect society. For them a perfect society is relegated to a strict set of rules which are absolutes and are enforced almost with a viciousness which is highly oppressive. Once these people take power the media is totally censored and controlled, all information comes directly from a central source and the people are watched with suspicion that they will turn at a moment’s opportunity. The reality is that eventually the people will turn and freedom will return, just not for at least two or three generations.

 

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

 

Above is what is known as the “Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance” which was originated by Scottish historian Alexander Tytler who studied the rise and fall of freedom and its subsequent loss. Reading the cycle from any one point the sequence appears to make some sense. The problem is many people feel that this cycle can be broken and that in a modern society there is no way that freedom can be erased as the people would never stand for such. They would never vote in any people who promised to subjugate them. They are correct but what if the situation calls for the return of social order and a return to what they are promised is life as they knew it. The situation is as described above where societal order has been completely disrupted by subversive forces similarly to what is occurring on college campuses and certain large cities but in a far more generalized and systemized equation of violence. Then some respected political figure which the people recognize and trust, say former President Clinton or former President Obama or even someone like “name your favorite progressive political figure” takes the lead enacting Marshal Law and that is the end of freedom. Even if this candidate does not intend to imperil the freedoms of the people, there will be one who follows along soon thereafter who will subjugate the public. This might even come about through assassinating the initial public figure who really did intend to return the governance to the Constitution or whatever system was temporarily interrupted while public order was restored. The subsequent capture and very public move towards a trial will have the media blaming those who were the supporters of the former leader who was replaced to bring order. Of course the actual assassin was from the side of those taking power and never planning on returning the power to the people and they will have a second assassin who will murder the person who murdered their initial ruler. This will remove any possibility of questions being sought and answered and the truth coming out revealing the entire façade being used to steal the governance and oppress the people. This second assassin will also be suicidal and will kill themselves thus tying up all the loose ends and should they not commit suicide, well, they could always die in a shootout when they were being captured. That scenario can come about whether they are shooting or not as who is going to doubt the police when the media fully backs their version of events. Watch events and be afraid. Is the loss of freedom inevitable? We cannot truthfully answer that but history shows a very poor track record. Remember that Rome was initially a republic where the citizens voted and after the assassination of Caesar it all came to an abrupt halt and every following leader declared themselves to be Caesar, interesting. After World War I Germany was initially ruled by the Wiemar Republic, that is before it fell to the Nazis in much the steps reviewed above. To fully understand the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance one must study history, lots of history, just as had Alexander Tytler. We never said it would be fun. Still, it will not hopefully happen soon unless the people become even more complacent and apathetic. After all, not everyone is dependent, but that is not actually required and the United States has its full share of bread and circuses, like Super Bowl anyone?

The Only Way Out of Current Impasse

 

Recognize Gaza as the Palestinian State and annex Judea and Samaria. That is the solution in a nutshell. Simply allow the next attempted coup by Hamas, as allowing it to survive for just short of a week, say five days, as in five days any credible coup will remove the hierarchy of Fatah, decapitating the Palestinian Authority (PA). This would be the start of a bloodbath of fighting with much of the PA Security Forces, the same forces, which though trained by United States General Dayton and his cadre in Jordan, lost to Hamas in Gaza in just under a couple of weeks, resulting in their losing badly again. Any decently planned Hamas coup attempt would likely place one third of the PA Security forces against another third of the PA Security Forces while the remaining third would run to Jordan seeking asylum. The hue and cry from those selfsame United Nations Security Council which just passed a resolution all but demanding that Israel flee back from Judea and Samaria, if not jump straight into the Mediterranean Sea, would be blaming Israel for the Arab on Arab fighting and demanding that Israel dispense sufficient IDF force to save the Arabs from the other Arabs. This is where Israel points out their solving this problem, which will have all the appearances of Syria redux, comes with a price, Judea and Samaria, and that the world had best find someplace for these newly made refugees to be taken in and coddled, perhaps around Turtle Bay in New York.

 

The first step Israel should take when such a scenario of a Hamas coup explodes in Nablus would be to secure Area C and make sure everybody knows Israel is simply following through on providing security and protection for all people residing in Area C as per the Oslo Accords. Israeli leadership could produce numerous copies of the agreement if the world demands so and it will reveal that Area C security, both militarily and politically, falls to Israel and Israel alone while Area A is purely PA security and Area B is shared when necessary. On that note make sure to inform the world that Israel is carefully overseeing the security potential for problems in Area B and if the PA proves not to be up to the task that there are contingencies for the IDF to provide security in Area B as per the Oslo Accords. Israel would need to issue Hamas a stern warning that Israel takes a very dim and critical view of their activities in this coup and as Israel remains powerless to aid the PA, Israel will not allow any actions against Israeli forces, citizens or lands to go unchallenged and no such actions will be ignored. All this in place, Israel should monitor the situation, offer to secure Area B if the PA would so request and otherwise wish the PA well with their electoral problems and pretend they are finally holding those long overdue elections.

 

As the world begins to press Israel about the fighting in Nablus and much of Area A, Israel should simply point out that the world just demanded Israel honor its commitments to the Palestinian people and their government and that is exactly what Israel intends to do. We should invite the United Nations to send peacekeepers if they feel such is required in Area A but warn that once peace is restored that Israel expects to be included in any further governance other than the PA being reinstalled. If Hamas performs anywhere near to their past history, reinstalling the PA would necessitate new leadership and potentially the parties who should have had the power all along, the ruling clans who have lived under dire threat with the PA in charge, would regain their positions. With each town and village ruled by their clan elders things can become manageable and perhaps a peace could be forged. Of course, again, there would be a price for permitting these clans to have some form of autonomy where they could expect to rule without terrorist groups cutting the heads of leadership of the public body, both figuratively and actually. Israel could simply make a deal where the IDF rules the area keeping the boogie men at bay allowing semi-autonomous rule of the Arab enclaves by the local Arab clans with the international and national security provided by Israel. In exchange these clans would permit all of Area C, the Jordan Valley and the overlooking Heights to be annexed by Israel to further facilitate providing complete security for these clan leaders.

 

This ends the claims of from the river to the sea all Jews must be eradicated and in its place implants Arab rule over Arab peoples and room for both to expand and Israeli sovereignty over all of Israel as defined by countless conferences, treaties, articles in charters, white papers and just about every conceivable form of Internationally recognized legal proceedings. These clan leaders will also submit that their education system can be either handled completely by themselves with their curricula supervised to remove any instigation, they could hand the entire responsibility to Israel who would then run the necessary schools within their area for a reasonable fee or the two could collaborate and form a partnership. The final compromise would likely serve well and Israel taking their school system and incorporating it into the regular Israeli system would provide a high level of education and a promising opportunity for these students. The most difficult task will be the deprogramming of those swayed or involved with terrorism and those deepest in its clutches may require a deprogramming followed by an intense reeducation experience required to give them maximum normal education in an extremely abbreviated timeframe.

 

Many will claim that this is completely unfeasible because the PA is too powerful for any inferior Hamas force to contend against. If this is so, then the PA will continue, possibly wounded, but continue and things will only affect Area C which will still be locked down under the demands of the Oslo accords. If the world is going to pretend that the Green Line is the result of the Oslo Accords, then perhaps Israel should act exactly as demanded by the Oslo Accords and secure Area C. Such security would preclude any building by the European Union or any European government or NGO. When we speak of Area C we are speaking of the general areas defined within Area C and not any of the roadways beyond those required for access to and from Israel and Jerusalem. Securing the areas which the Oslo Accords favored Israeli retention of lands, Area C, and offering and potentially securing the shared responsibility and lands where the debate over who owned what was presumed to be negotiated, Area B, Israel will have reinstated the realities of the Oslo Accords. Should the debate by AK-47 in Area A between Hamas and the PA devolve into a Syria-like mire of horrific levels of hell on earth, Israel should offer to protect the areas which the world, especially the Western World, hold dear such as Hevron, Bethlehem, Jericho and other special religious sites which include but are not limited to Joseph’s Tomb, Rachel’s Tomb and all locations within the city of Jerusalem and immediate suburbs (see map below). There would therefore be some alterations but should the PA accept such terms, even after any coup attempt, these could be the final peace. The understanding would be that absolutely no terror activity which could be traced to PA instigation or having received rewards or special recognition by the PA and all such activity would not be tolerated. This must be an absolute sworn to before the world as witness and thus enforceable by both parties. Be assured that Israel does not desire to rule over Arab parties who desire semi-autonomous self-rule. These areas would be given sufficient autonomy to police their own areas, collect taxes, limit entrance if desired, and run their own governmental agencies. The understanding is that the IDF and Israeli security forces would be permitted to operate within these areas in order to combat terror and to secure the lands from outside threats, a duty taken over completely by Israel. Any electricity, water, sewage treatment and other necessary utilities would be provided by Israel if desired but must be paid for as received or face termination of service as would any other customer. As a part of being semi-autonomous such utilities could also be billed as is done in Israel but once again bills must be paid for continued service.

After any coup destroyed the local governance and after Hamas is defeated, then the Arabs residing in Areas A and B will be granted an opportunity to choose whether they desire local rule by chosen clan leaders or other tribal means, attempted inclusion within Israel after meeting a series of educations and understandings, or a return to rule by the PA or by Hamas. These choices will take place as voted under Israeli and outside observers from the United Nations, European Union and the United States along with other interested parties. Should the majority choose self-rule in semi-autonomous clanship ruled enclaves, then the PA will be dissolved and such governance as chosen will be set by another election held soon thereafter. This would result in a two state solution with Gaza as the second state ruled by Hamas, at least for now. What the lying political appointees and elected officials claiming to favor a two state solution are either making the choice for a three state solution with one under Hamas rule and the other under PA, unless they are admitting that they are already aware that should the PA be granted any form of governance, it would inevitably provide Hamas the high ground overlooking the Israeli center and the major developed lands both industrial and residential after they once again would route the PA in a mano-a-mano fight. Israel cannot and will not allow Hamas such ground with which to destroy the heart of Israel, and as such, Israel will never surrender our holiest sites to further ruin as has been the case with such sites in Syria and already perpetrated on our holiest grounds, the Temple Mount. As difficult as it might be for the world to admit, placing the Palestinian Arab people under clan and tribal rule would improve their lives immeasurably and far improve their opportunities for advancement. It would also remove from their shoulders the yoke of PA leadership’s embezzlement and oppressive and borderline criminal rule and the crony system by which a select few get unfathomably rewarded and the poorest find providing their family with food difficult.

 

What the world has proven through their actions supporting the PA kleptocracy and refusing the Palestinian Arabs honest governance by their own representatives and chosen local leaders in favor of the homicidal maniacs instigating a horrific injustice by instigating terror, is they support the destruction of Israel and the Jewish State even if the Palestinian Arab areas must suffer depravations only exceeded by Syria. This terror war is spreading now beyond Israeli shores into Europe, America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and virtually every place on earth with the exception, thus far, of Antarctica. France has been heavily struck as has Germany with both nations facing climbing criminal complaints with an unbelievable increase in sexual assaults. These increases can be directly tied to the social shock of attempting to incorporate one culture into an existing older order which one has a differing sense of order and moral behavior while the newer system believes in taking any woman who is not protected by law or criminal enterprise. Their governance has been largely corrupt and could not care less about their rights. In these mixtures, not all lives are created equal and the power appears to rest with the few at the top and the rest make do however they are capable. Such is a poor excuse for governance, especially when one realizes the last held election was approaching past a decade ago and that Abbas has been serving a four year term since 2005. There is no representation of the people or their interests within the PA. The PA operates for the special treatment of the select few and their armed protectors and in return the protectors provide the security in the same manner as the power is distributed. The entirety of the PA is as corrupt as one can imagine and is under the sway of the Iranians. As such it should be viewed with suspicion that they are working towards the destruction of Israel through subversion. Once routed out this time, it will be necessary to keep them out permanently. That is the sole path to peace.

Turkey Tanks Attacking Kurds, not Islamic State so Much

 

Turkey announced that their armor supported troops rolling southward into Syria with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claiming they are there to confront Islamic State and Syrian Kurdish rebels. This appears to be somewhat absurd to use the problems caused by the Islamic State in order to destroy as much of the Kurdish forces before retreating back north of the border claiming whatever excuse necessary to excuse their not confronting Islamic State. This is a mission to weaken the Kurdish Militias, Peshmerga, in order to make the Kurdish vulnerable to the al-Nusra Front, Islamic State and whatever other Arab forces are able to take advantage of the Turkish weakening and degrading of the Kurdish ability to defend themselves. This attack by Turkish forces is all about Erdogan’s detestable hostility towards the Kurds and has no footing in reality and is fully due to the visceral desire to destroy the Kurds from spite. The Kurdish forces in Syria have always been fixated facing southward in order to face threats from al-Nusra, al-Qaeda aligned terrorists, Alawite forces of the Syrian Military, and, of course, against Islamic State (formerly ISIS or ISIL). At no time have the Kurdish Militias in Syria taken any hostile steps against Turkey and have little if any connection with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party or PKK (Kurdish: Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê ‎) which the Turkish government has labeled as a terrorist group.

 

This has more to do with the success of the Kurds in the first of the last two elections where they forced Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) to not have an outright majority and thus require making a coalition with another similar Islamic Party. Erdogan took the alternative solution of preventing any coalition from forming thus forcing another election. Between the elections mysteriously numerous Kurdish leading officials and some Kurdish and other minor party candidates met untimely and mysterious ends. The ensuing second election proceeded in giving the AKP a clean majority. After there being no government or other investigations into the mysterious deaths and other strange events, there soon was an entirely different set of investigations to carry out. There was a coup in Turkey presumable brought about by a mysterious Imam who once was allied with Erdogan but they fell out as Erdogan gained in strength and no longer needed his former “friend” and political ally. Now this former ally, Imam Muhammd Fethullah Gulen, could pose a threat to Erdogan despite residing outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, in the twilight of life and became the next great threat. President Erdogan is cementing his power so as to become President for Life, thus the Gulen coup which came apart almost before it got started. There were numerous reports of “Gulen coup allied pilots attaining missile lock of the aircraft carrying Erdogan and having this lock for over five minutes and never firing a single missile or other armament at the aircraft. What coup worth its salt does not shoot down the reigning President’s aircraft when given the opportunity? We’ll tell you; the kind of coup which is engineered and executed by the reigning President who is feeling particularly vulnerable after not winning an overwhelming victory in an election and having to resort to back room politics to win the forced second election balloting. He used goon squads to assure his win in the second election while also intimidating the Kurdish population severely diminishing their numbers voting in the second elections. Then he had a coup and within twenty-four hours of putting down the coup there were more than six-thousands of judges, prosecutors, lawyers and other legal professionals arrested and another six-thousand military personnel arrested and a predicted additional many thousands still on lists to be arrested and an equal number to be placed under investigation. Now there is an armor supported assault into Syria to vanquish the ability of the Kurds in Syria to defend their people leaving them vulnerable to the Islamic State. Meanwhile there will not likely be much, if any, assault by these Turkish forces against the Islamic State as was promised as the main reason for the crossing into Syria. This is highly unlikely as the Turkish forces could very well have their hands full just engaging the Kurdish Militias.

 

Turkish Tank Rolling Into North-Eastern Syria

Turkish Tank Rolling Into North-Eastern Syria

 

Much of the reason for this attack and numerous other nasty little surprises coming between now and the middle of January of next year is because President Obama’s terms in office are coming to a close and the United States may become a greater presence in the world after the election no matter who wins. Erdogan knows he will be losing his BFF (best friend forever) in the White House and gaining either an unpredictable crazy person who might send troops against you if you upset them on a bad hair day or Donald Trump as the next President. Either way, crazy hair Donald or crazier hair Hillary, you will be looking at somebody far more willing to use the United States military power than you have with President Obama. We have all heard endless tales of how unpredictable and erratic Donald Trump can be but the truth is Hillary Clinton is far more vindictive, ask any of the women who played with Bill and then told, and who has a long list of corpses showing up in her past, think Ft. Marcy Park and the Vince Foster enigma in a puzzle wrapped in lies which the police still have no clue or Ron Brown and air crash anomalies. Donald Trump does not have a trail of dead realestate developers left behind him in a train of tears as does Hillary with political problem people or just problem people. Then there are the select names Hillary has called those who fell short of delivering on campaigns such as reported in the Guardian that she called Paul Fray, her husband’s campaign manager at the time, a… well, we’ll let you look this one up if you are unfamiliar with it. Just for added information, the man was not and is not, to the best of our knowledge, Jewish. So much for even tempered and if given a choice on who has the “football” following them everywhere with the codes to launch sufficient nuclear weapons to end the planet as we know it, I would much have a jolly crazy person who jokes about the size of their “hands” than a vindictive person who cannot even control their tongue, let alone who knows what else.

 

Along the line of the mice playing while the cat is away, or simply asleep at the switch, China is building a naval base in Djibouti fairly close to the major United States post in Africa and is considering more such military ports placed at focal points around the globe. China has even stated in their budgeting that they hope to become a naval force who rules the waves, or at least the commercial shipping lanes. Their claim is this base has been established to fight the piracy in this area and should they succeed in this endeavor as announced, they will receive many thanks from nations around the world who have used the Suez Canal and faced the pirate menace in these waters. We also have the Chinese Island building into the South China Sea and Russia expanding their naval docking abilities in the Mediterranean Sea and using a military airfield in Iran to cover the Middle East under the pretense of fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The world could look even stranger and the United States will now face facts on the ground around the globe with adversarial forces and nations who will have taken full advantage of a President asleep at the controls while spending time attempting to cripple adversaries at home, even some in his own party. The problem is the United States will not suffer alone from the adversarial role played by President Obama against the United States historic alliances and capabilities leaving a world vulnerable without any real guidance. At the end of World War II the United States all but neutered the militaries of the allied powers as if their militaries were the reason for the war and promised they would protect Europe from all threats. Well, that appears to have come to an end and it will be interesting no matter who wins the coming elections as both have stated they are want to use American military force unless there is a driving threat which must be met. The definition of such a threat is different between Hillary and Donald but that can wait until closer to the election when people might actually care. Suffice it to say that one of them is not traditional American force projection in their thinking.
