THE LITTLE DICTATOR

In 1940, Hollywood produced a movie staring Charlie Chaplin which was titled "The Great Dictator". It was a put down on Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Gremany. I'm sure most of you....except for those under let's say 30....have heard of it, and some of those may have even had a chance to see it. I think I was around 10 the first time I had the opportunity to watch the film. It was a funny movie....showed a bumbling fool as an all powerful dictator.

Even with as funny as that movie was, the 1930's and 1940's in Germany were not....and we are heading in that direction. Everything that Bush and his cronies, the Republican leadership, and the rest of the neocons have done over the past 25 years have been done to lead this country towards this end. Those who designed the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) have had the biggest hand in this.

At the bottom of this post you will find some links to information on PNAC and what their goal is.

...but first I have this from Doug Thompson at Capitol Hill Blue:

The Rant
Bush could seize absolute control of U.S. government

President George W. Bush has signed executive orders giving him sole authority to impose martial law, suspend habeas corpus and ignore the Posse Comitatus Act that prohibits deployment of U.S. troops on American streets. This would give him absolute dictatorial power over the government with no checks and balances.

Bush discussed imposing martial law on American streets in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by activating “national security initiatives” put in place by Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.

These “national security initiatives," hatched in 1982 by controversial Marine Colonel Oliver North, later one of the key players in the Iran-Contra Scandal, charged the Federal Emergency Management Agency with administering executive orders that allowed suspension of the Constitution, implementation of martial law, establishment of internment camps, and the turning the government over to the President.


Now, click the link above and go read the rest of the column.

Here's the rest of the links I mentioned earlier. Check 'em out. They explain alot about the neocon plan for our country as well as the rest of the world.

Grandpa Eddie: I left this response to Karena on my blog to a comment she had left for me, but I beleive it works equally well here, too for your post:

I have really wracked my brain about what would motivate them to risk so much, but I think it all rests in the Neo-Convict creedo of The Haves and the Have Mores destroying every tenet of social equality and turning all societies into the longed for return of the carpet baggers model.
That appeals to their racist, sexist, and corporatist dreams... and if the US and the UK are dragged down into the toilet to achieve that, then so be it. B/c God knows that us citizens in the US and UK have gotten too uppity with all of our civil rights. Constant warring will take care of a whole lot of the Neo-Convict problems with free societies by destorying all fedrl funding for public education, all socially needed programs, Soc Sec, consumer debtors hanging onto the edge of their fingernails, and not enough Kool-Aid drinking soldiers sworn to loyalty to uphold the King/Dictator's plans.

And we should always keep in mind something that Gen Wes Clark said last yr about the new bankruptcy laws. Clark said that he believed it was laying the groundwork for the Neo-Convicts to set up a system (like in days of old in colonial England) whereby your personal debts could be wiped away in part or whole if only you or your loved ones joined the military... think about it.... gives you chills, right?

Tina,
When ya think about it, it does make sense that the neocons would have that in mind when they were pushing the BankBill thru...and who is it that has a large percentage of the personal debt in this country?...college age kids. Let's see...hmmmm...a never ending supply of cannon fodder.

I do believe they have a master plan and see how the bankruptcy bill would fit neatly into that.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Karena,
Yup...and the BankBill is one small part of that plan.
