Echoes of History Past

Please allow me the latitude, I know it's long but I would apreciate if you would take the time to read it and perhaps comment. I came across this article some time ago and I just wanted to point out the similarities with Germany exhibited in its pre-fascist 'Nazi' state.

I would like for someone to explain:
1) How such 'hiccups' occur without certain benchmarks and
2) The phenomena that occurs when the population actually supports the nationalist ideology which 'tends' to culminate with a 'suppression' of the perceived threat which oft times leads to its own citizens.

Military training program for teens expands in US
by Mira Oberman
Sun Nov 25, 6:17 PM ET

Dozens of teens dressed in uniforms provided by the US Marines stand at attention in the gym of a Chicago public high school as a drill sergeant goes through a list of the day's do's and don'ts.

Bring your books to class. Come for extra help if you need it. And wear your uniform with pride.

"Young men, you think you can get a haircut and say I'm done for two or three weeks. WRONG," Sgt. Major Thomas Smith Jr. intones.

"Young ladies. There's been no problem with your uniforms but there is a problem with your ties. Again, I will go through it again. Wear your ties when you come to my class."

One in 10 public high school students in Chicago wears a military uniform to school and takes classes -- including how to shoot a gun properly -- from retired veterans.

That number is expected to rise as junior military reserve programs expand across the country now that a congressional cap of 3,500 units has been lifted from the nearly century-old scheme.

Proponents of the junior reserve programs say they provide stability and a sense of purpose for troubled youth and help to instill values such as leadership and responsibility.

But opponents say the programs divert critical resources from crumbling public schools and lead to a militarization of US society.

"To call these young people child soldiers might be technically inaccurate, but it does reveal the truth of it," said Oscar Castro, a spokesman for the National Youth and Militarism Program, an advocacy group.

Military recruiters already have the right to give presentations in public schools and to access databases with the contact information of all public school students whose parents do not remove their children from the list.

But they don't have nearly the same impact as daily interaction with teachers and students in uniform, Castro said.

While military officials say the junior reserve programs are not used as recruiting tools, about 30 to 50 percent of cadets eventually enlist, according to congressional testimony by the chiefs of staff of the various armed services in February 2000.

This is particularly troubling given that the programs are concentrated in low-income and minority neighborhoods, said Sheena Gibbs, a spokeswoman for the Chicago branch of the American Friends Service Committee which lobbies against the programs.

"If you want to teach discipline and leadership then do it for everyone and don't make them wear (military) uniforms," Gibbs said. "Students (at regular schools) protest that they have to still share books but the military academy has laptops."

At Chicago's Marine Military Math and Science Academy, the first public Marine academy in the nation and the fifth military academy run by the city's school district, it's easy to see how signing up for service would be a logical post-graduation step.

The hallways are lined with prints depicting historic recruiting posters and great moments in military history, like the Battle of the Bulge. Teachers in uniform lead classes in military history, civics, health, and physical fitness.

"The purpose of our school is to send all of our students to post-secondary education," principal Paul Stroh told AFP.

"What's different about this school is we take the military model of discipline, structure and leadership and put it into a high school.

"All of our students wear a uniform and all of our students are expected to be accountable for their actions."

And every morning in formation, Sgt. Major Smith draws a line between the discipline and stability of the Marines and the chaos of the high-crime, low income neighborhood where most of the students live.

"My elementary school was out of control. Everybody just did whatever they wanted," said Mariah Coleman, 14.

"Here there's discipline, but there's freedom as well. Everybody just respects each other and we get respect from the teachers."

Standing with her hands clasped firmly behind her back, Coleman wrinkles her nose at the thought of enlisting and explains that she wants to be a mathematician. She enrolled in the Marine academy because she thought it would help her get into college.

She has four years until graduation.

Please read this also. The comparison mirrors our current situation right down to the age group targeted and the method of execution. How can we ignore these warning signs to the direction our nation is taking. Someone once said to me," I think that because I do it over and over I can convince myself that it is right and I'll achieve different results." Profound.

Hitler Youth

Kurt Gruber formed the first group of young members of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) in 1926. Rudolf Hess suggested the name of the Hitler Youth (Hitlerjugend) and later that year transferred the leadership of the movement to Franz von Pfeffer of the Sturm Abteilung (SA).

Pfeffer's main intention was to train young men to fight against members of left-wing youth groups. The Hitler Youth (HJ) were taken over by Ernst Roehm in 1930 and remained as a adjunct to the SA. After Roehm was murdered during the Night of the Long Knives the group came under the control of Baldur von Schirach, the Reich youth leader.

Schirach asked Adolf Hitler to allow him to create an independent youth movement. Hitler agreed and Schirach now made several important changes to the way it was organized. In 1936 membership of the HJ was made compulsory for all boys aged 15 and 18. At the same time all other youth organizations were banned.

In 1938 there were 8,000 full-time leaders of the HJ. There were also 720,000 part-time HJ leaders, often schoolteachers, who had been trained in National Socialist principles.

For boys aged between 10 and 14 years Baldur von Schirach set up the Jungvolk. The boys had to learn semaphore, arms drill, and take part in two-day cross-country hikes. They also had to learn Nazi dogma and once they passed the necessary tests they were given a special dagger marked "Blood and Honour". The main objective of the organization was to provide Adolf Hitler with loyal supporters

Once girls reached the age of they could join the Jungmädel. At 14 they entered the Bund Deutscher Mädel. (German Girls' League). This included a year of farm or domestic service. They were trained by female guardians and their overall leader was Gertrud Scholtz-Klink.

The Hitler Youth published a series of magazines including Youth and Homeland, The Young World, The German Girl and Girls Your World. Another magazine, Will and Power, was produced for HJ leaders and female guardians.

During the Second World War the HJ were often used in air defence work. In 1940 Baldur von Schirach was replaced by Artur Axmann, as leader of the HJ.

When Germany ran short of soldiers members of the Hitler Youth were encouraged to join the 12th SS Panzer Division, commanded by Germany's youngest general, Kurt Meyer. In 1945 members of the HJ were armed and told to fight to the death.


Now at least one of my concerns is the use of teens being indoctrinated into a military that is not being used to defend Americans but to carry out the agenda and purposes of a select minority to the disadvantage of those that are already struggling in the economy that exists today which is in no part due to the labor of the people. It used to be called slavery but since that no longer exists...Yet we stand silent as it approaches.

We are going to war with Iran one way or another. Not because they pose a threat to American soil but because they are a natural progression in an attempt to extend empire. There is ONLY ONE state that wants the US's involvement on Iran and it is their voices that our politicians are listening to, not ours or our vote. How many more children are we going to send to appease this group that is not in the least bit concerned of your opinion? It doesn't matter what 'intelligence' says i.e. the recent Iran report, the prevailing voices of men who profit on war condemn it and are seen as authorities. Now this exact same thing happened almost 5 years ago this spring. And not only were WMD's never found but in front of the national press club made the statement," No WMD's over here, gotta be over there, nope none there either." Pardon my Spanish but that takes cajones. Yet we as a nation continue to support the men or women of such behavior? Allow them unrestrained power to take away the very things we all hold dear?

If I were to wax Messianic I might interject," Remove the plank from your own eye that you might see to remove the speck in your brothers.". Nah I won't EVEN go there.

The Winter of Our Discontent

I spent this afternoon watching this. I have spent the last 3+ years of my life studying history, politics, empire building; the exact same things that Ms. Wolf is talking about are the things that I have come to find yet before today I did not know who she was. I cannot put into words how completely I agree with her investigations.

Then just before going to bed this evening I came across this article:

Nuclear submarine commander removed
By CHELSEA J. CARTER, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 17 minutes ago

The commanding officer of the nuclear-powered submarine USS Hampton was relieved of his duty Thursday because of a loss of confidence in his leadership, the Navy said. Cmdr. Michael B. Portland was relieved of duty after a U.S. Navy investigation found the ship failed to do daily safety checks on its nuclear reactor for a month and falsified records to cover up the omission. "His oversight of the crew's performance did not identify these issues" on his own, Navy Lt. Alli Myrick, a public affairs officer, told The Associated Press. Portland's commanders identified the problems during a routine review, she said. It appears from a preliminary investigation on the Hampton that sailors in Submarine Squadron 11 had skipped the required analysis of the chemical and radiological properties of the submarine's reactor for more than a month, even though a daily check is required. The Hampton, a Los Angeles Class submarine assigned to Submarine Squadron Eleven, is the most advanced nuclear attack submarine in the world, carrying a torpedo, cruise missile, and mine-laying arsenal, according to information on the Navy's Web site. The submarine is docked in San Diego. Portland's dismissal as commander is effective immediately. Myrick said Portland will be temporarily assigned to squadron duty and the Hampton will not conduct operations until the Navy can confirm the operational standards have been met. Myrick said at no time was the submarine conducting unsafe operations. "He has not been charged with any offense nor has he received non-judicial punishment," Myrick said. There was no phone listing for Portland in San Diego, and the Navy did not immediately respond to an AP interview request. Portland's removal comes after officials also discovered that logs on the Hampton had been filled out to make it appear the daily checks of the reactor water had actually been done. Other members of the squadron discovered the lapse during a routine examination required as part of the redundancy built into the system so problems are caught. The examination was done as the submarine was nearing the end of a West Pacific deployment that concluded Sept. 17. The investigation was first reported in Monday's edition of Navy Times newspaper, which quoted an unidentified source as saying that failing to measure and maintain the correct water chemistry in the reactor over the long-term could cause corrosion in the propulsion system. The reported problems with procedures and record keeping in the Navy squadron follows an incident in August when a B-52 bomber was mistakenly armed with six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles and flown to a Louisiana base. The mission from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota was to ferry cruise missiles that had been slated for decommissioning but the warheads were supposed to have been removed beforehand. The Air Force disciplined some 70 airmen. Portland is the fourth commanding officer of a submarine to be relieved of duty this year. The other three, who were relieved for various unrelated actions, were: Cmdr. Edwin Ruff of the USS Minneapolis St. Paul, Cmdr. Matthew Weingart of the USS Newport News and Cmdr. William Schwalm of the USS Helena. Portland will be replaced by Cmdr. William J. Houston, who previously was assigned as a special assistant to the Director of the Naval Reactors.

This is happening right now people. ALL of the necessary tools are already in place to bring about the 'blitzkrieg' of fascism taking over. These men were relieved of their positions because 'they refused to push the button' when the command was given to them. They can print whatever makes them feel comfortable about their actions, but the truth is they were not 'playing ball' just like Joe Wilson and the Niger document. How many times do we have to see the identical events before we wake up and catch on?

Do we really comprehend at what threshold we stand on? Do the 'mainstream christian movement' actually believe that the one they follow is the Messiah? Every Bible I've ever picked up and read said Jesus came with a message of LOVE! LOVE was the final 'new command' that HE gave to them. Can they really believe that this is the 'will of "god"'? With all of the fantastic information provided by this woman she doesn't touch the subject of religions influence and the ramifications of the misguided policy of the Ministers of Yes that guide the spiritual hearts of the great majority of Americans.

Her conclusion about Giuliani is correct. Mukasey's appointment is just a matter of formalities. Podhoretz's position on his foreign relations team is no coincidence. The man has already come out and said he is against the formation of a nation of Palestine and that he would support nuclear attacks on Iran. He's saying all the 'right' things and claiming America supports him Giuliani WILL be appointed the next president of the United States....or what's left of it. All of the men needed for his usurpation are being put into place to inaugurate the next 'evolution'. What is getting ready to happen to America and around the globe is unlike anything seen for a very long time. The magnitude and scope of it are truly frightening in their prospects. After all dictators love 'elections', they make them look like the people actually support their agenda. The next clip even goes so far as to give us a glimpse of what has happened to the 'democratic' system that used to exist in America at one time.

I know that the last thing most people want to hear at a time like this is the Biblical implications of the events that are getting ready to take place. EVERYTHING that is happening has been foretold by the prophets and their examples are unmistakable. I hope that anyone that might be reading this would look to the truth of the teachings of Scripture, whether they be the Torah, the Qur'an or the New Testament. Obey HIS teachings and follow in HIS way because the truth is the ONE TRUE GOD is recognized in all three faiths but there is only one way to become a 'child of GOD' and that is through obedience.

I'm baaaaaack

It may take some time to reorganize and post but I am in process. I have weathered some major changes in my life including the addition of another daughter, renovating a house and moving, overcoming the destruction of years worth of work but I'm back with the same message and more information to help those that are aware of what it is they are seeing or even if they aren't sure of what they are seeing. Zionism is the beast and the beast is hungry for blood...and hate and destruction. So as we watch it feed and grow it's good to take snapshots so it's easy to identify and avoid becoming a friend to it as mainstream American 'Christians' have so eagerly done.

Moreover, our eyes failed,
looking in vain for help;
from our towers we watched
for a nation that could not save us.

Lamentations 4:17

I'm not sure which will be worse the fate of the Zionists of those that have ignored the clues, the truth, and the teachings of the one they call Savior.

Will be back soon

Things are finally beginning to come together. Using the library computer is drawing to a close. perhaps within the next month I will be able to post some of the things that have been consuming a great deal of my time. I'll actually take the time to switch the blog over to Google too.
