"History's Repeating Itself Again"

Dear Doves,

      Since Hussein abruptly travelled to Berlin in the middle of a primary campaign, which most pundits admit he was losing at that time to Hillary Clinton; I have cataloged an extensive list of uncanny similarities between the imposition of martial law in Nazi Germany and the un-Constitutional powers that Hussein has amassed under His control in the executive branch. 
      Either by flattery, cajoling, or intimidation of the Congress, or the Supreme Court, Hussein has effectively neutered the Judicial and Legislative Branches of our government. Traditionally, the President has operated his administration through a group of like minded Cabinet level appointments. The President would present his Cabinet selections to the United States Senate for their approval. It was then the Cabinet's responsibility to institute and initiate administration policies. 
      However, in this Regime a Cabinet level position means little, because this leader cannot afford to allow the likeminded personalities of his Regime to become widely know, or freely express their true beliefs on camera to the American People. So, today real power in the Hussein Regime is exercised through largely unknown personally appointed, or recess appointed personalities that the Regime's called czars (,or little kings). Just like previous presidents, Hussein has surrounded himself with likeminded individuals.         However, unlike previous Regimes, these czars cannot pass an FBI background check, so they must be surreptitiously added to the White House Staff. Even with a sychophantic mainstream media that's dancing along to the Regime excessive beat, Hussein still can't afford to allow the American people to see his real associates, because they are radical environmentalists, radical moslems, violent communists, anarchists and globalist czars (little kings) We live with an Emperor who has no clothes. Anyone in a position of authority is frightened to death. Well meaning officials who call into question the legetimacy of Hussein citizenship's or the constitutionality of his behavior are destroyed by the media and the Regime.

Nazi Germany - Dictatorship (within 24 hrs after fire, no press, assembly or speaking out)

One week before the election was due to take place, the Reichstag building burned down.
Hitler immediately declared that it was the signal for a communist takeover of the nation.
Hitler knew that if he was to convince President Hindenburg to give him emergency powers - as stated in the Weimar Constitution - he had to play on the old president's fear of communism. What better than to convince him that the communists were about to take over the nation by force?
A known communist - Marianus van der Lubbe - was caught near the Reichstag building immediately after the fire had started. Those that arrested him - Nazi officials - claimed that Lubbe confessed to them that the fire was a signal to other communists to start the revolution to overthrow democracy in the country.
Matches were allegedly found on van der Lubbe and those who arrested him claimed that he smelt of petrol.
Hitler asked Hindenburg to grant him emergency powers in view of the 'communist takeover'.
Using the constitution, Hindenburg agreed to pass the Law for the Protection of the People and the State.
This law gave Hitler what he wanted -
a ban on the Communists and Socialists taking part in an election campaign. The leaders from both parties were arrested and their newspapers were shut down.
To 'keep the peace' and maintain law and order, the SA (the Brown Shirts) roamed the streets beating up those who openly opposed Hitler.
The election took place in March - though Hitler was convinced it would be the last. Hitler did not get the number of votes he wanted but he did get enough to get over a 50% majority in the Reichstag:
Communists 4.8 million votes Social Democrats 7.2 million votes Centre party 5.5 million votes Nationalists 3.1 million votes Other parties 1.4 million votes Nazis 17.3 million votes
That 12 million people voted for what were effectively two outlawed parties is remarkable when the intimidation of voters is taken into account.
After the burning down of the Reichstag, politicians had nowhere to meet.
The Kroll Opera House in Berlin was chosen. This was a relatively small round building - perfect for meetings. On March 23rd, elected officials were due to meet to discuss and vote on Hitler's Enabling Law.
As politicians neared the building, they found it surrounded by SS and SA thugs who tried to ensure that only Nazi or Nationalist politicians got into the building.
The vote for this law was crucial as it gave Hitler a vast amount of power. The law basically stated that any bill only needed Hitler's signature and within 24 hours that bill would become law in Germany.
With only Nazis and other right wing politicians inside the Kroll Opera House, the bill was quickly passed into law. The act gave Hitler what he wanted - dictatorial power.
What he wanted would become law in Germany within 24 hours of his signature being put on paper.
On 7th April 1933, Nazi officials were put in charge of all local government in the provinces.
On May 2nd 1933, trades unions were abolished, their funds taken and their leaders put in prison. The workers were given a May Day holiday in return.
On July 14th 1933, a law was passed making it illegal to form a new political party. It also made the Nazi Party the only legal political party in Germany.
Germany became a nation of snoops. People were employed in each street, in each building complex etc. with the sole purpose of keeping an eye on others in their 'area' and reporting them to the authorities if they believed that something was amiss.
The reputation of the Nazi police and the secret police lead by Himmler was such that no-one wished to cause offence.
People kept their thoughts to themselves unless they wished to invite trouble. In this sense, Nazi Germany was a nation run on fear of the government. Hitler had created a one party state within months of being appointed chancellor.
His only remaining problem from his point of view was loyalty within his own party ranks. In June 1934, he overcame this with the Night of the Long Knives.
