“This is documented history.  This is how a totalitarian state comes into being.  The aspiring dictator must silence the opposition.  At present, the IRS has been the chosen vehicle to silence those who oppose the Marxist/Progressive regime headed by Obama.  The aspiring dictator must assume power whether legal or not.  Obama has taken it upon himself to write law, which is not within the powers of the office he holds.”


Throughout history different historical figures have determined their rule is superior to the rule of the people.  These historical figures, although in different times and situations have assumed total power with similar methods.  What always seems to be a part of the process is the silencing of any opposition and the assumption of power despite laws, rules or practices to the contrary.  When criticized they answer by attacking and demeaning those who question, blaming others and praising themselves for being there to rescue their fellow countrymen.  We will look at tactics used by Julius Caesar, Mussolini, Hitler and Lenin.  We will then contrast and compare these tactics with those being used by Obama.

During his early career, Caesar had seen how chaotic and dysfunctional the Roman Republic had become. The republican machinery had broken down under the weight of imperialism, the central government had become powerless, the provinces had been transformed into independent principalities under the absolute control of their governors, and the army had replaced the constitution as the means of accomplishing political goals. With a weak central government, political corruption had spiraled out of control, and the status quo had been maintained by a corrupt aristocracy, which saw no need to change a system which had made all of its members quite rich.  Some will justify Obama’s actions by claiming he found himself in a similar situation.

Between Caesars crossing of the Rubicon River in 49 BC, and his assassination in 44 BC, he established a new constitution, which was intended to accomplish three separate goals. First, he wanted to suppress all armed resistance out in the provinces, and thus bring order back to the Republic. Second, he wanted to create a strong central government in Rome. And finally, he wanted to knit together the entire Republic into a single cohesive unit.  The first goal was accomplished when Caesar defeated Pompey and his supporters.  To accomplish the other two goals, he needed to ensure that his control over the government was undisputed, and so he assumed these powers by increasing his own authority, and by decreasing the authority of Rome’s other political institutions. To increase his own powers, he assumed the important magistracies and to weaken Rome’s other political institutions, he instituted several additional reforms. He controlled the process by which candidates were nominated for magisterial elections, he appointed his own supporters to the senate, and he prevented hostile measures from being adopted by the assemblies.  Caesar enhanced his power and diminished the power of others by assuming powers he may or may not have had legal authority to assume.

Following the March on Rome in October 1922 Mussolini became the youngest Prime Minister in Italian history. After destroying all political opposition through his secret police and outlawing labor strikes, Mussolini and his fascist followers consolidated their power through a series of laws that transformed the nation into a one-party dictatorship. Within five years he had established dictatorial authority by both legal and extraordinary means, aspiring to create a totalitarian state. Mussolini had his opponents silenced by using the force of government against them.  Obama, through Schumer, has called for the silencing of his opponents through illegal activities by the Internal Revenue Service.

Following the Reichstag fire, the Nazis began to suspend civil liberties and eliminate political opposition. The Communists were excluded from the Reichstag. At the March 1933 elections, no single party secured a majority. Hitler required the vote of the Centre Party and Conservatives in the Reichstag to obtain the powers he desired.  He called on Reichstag members to vote for the Enabling Act on 24 March 1933. Hitler was granted plenary powers “temporarily” by the passage of the Act.  The law gave him the freedom to act without parliamentary consent and even without constitutional limitations.

Employing his characteristic mix of negotiation and intimidation, Hitler offered the possibility of friendly co-operation, promising not to threaten the Reichstag, the President, the States or the Churches if granted the emergency powers.  The Centre Party, having obtained promises of non-interference in religion, joined with conservatives in voting for the Act (only the Social Democrats voted against).

The Act allowed Hitler and his Cabinet to rule by emergency decree for four years, though Hindenberg remained President.  Hitler immediately set about abolishing the powers of the states and the existence of non-Nazi political parties and organizations.  Non-Nazi parties were formally outlawed on 14 July, and the Reichstag abdicated its democratic responsibilities.  Hitler used blatant lies, deceit and abolition of any opposition.

Lenin used these six principles in his consolidation of power.

1. The Ends Justify the Means: The broken promises of Lenin’s regime delivered just the opposite. He guaranteed a free press, but in his first two days of communist rule he halted it. He called it temporary, but it wasn’t.

2. The Firstest with the Mostest:  Besides implementing a strategy of lies, Lenin also was quick to seize the semantic high ground. He swiftly altered and manipulated the meanings of words – intellectually disarming opponents. Lenin also took title to the word “democracy,” disarming opponents who were then unable to project a coherent message. By controlling words, Lenin controlled perceptions of reality.

3. Never Let a Crisis go to Waste:  The Bolsheviks would even create a crisis to achieve a goal.

4. Demonization:  In denouncing opponents, Lenin was obsessive, virulent and personal, calling them “bloodsuckers,” “insects,” “spiders,” “leeches” and “vampires.” The bourgeois were “ex-people.” The murder of Czar Nicholas II and his family was termed “a humane act.”  Then there were “hoarders,” “wreckers,” “saboteurs” and, worst of all, “Kulaks” — the prosperous and industrious peasants of whom Lenin spoke only “with the most seething hatred.”

5. Propaganda of Example: Perhaps the most disturbing means of propaganda against Russia’s mostly illiterate population was the use of example as part of a reign of terror. Public hangings and shootings served as well as any written material to force Russians into submission. “These swine have to be dealt with so that everyone will remember it for years,” Lenin wrote.

6. Blame your Predecessor: As has happened anytime socialism has been tried, it was a failure. Lenin’s civil war cost 13 million lives and his ruinous economic policies triggered the famine of 1921-1922.  Lenin had an endless propensity to blame his predecessor, the Czar, for the economic havoc.

We have not witnessed #5 literally being employed by the Obama regime.  However, we have seen very real scare tactics used by the regime when they lie to the poor and minorities telling them what the opposition will do to them if the opposition gains power.  Obama and his henchmen are literally employing every one of the others, just as Lenin showed them.  Lenin was a good teacher and Obama, Axelrod, Jarrett and now Podesta are good students.

This is documented history.  This is how a totalitarian state comes into being.  The aspiring dictator must silence the opposition.  At present, the IRS has been the chosen vehicle to silence those who oppose the Marxist/Progressive regime headed by Obama.  The aspiring dictator must assume power whether legal or not.  Obama has taken it upon himself to write law, which is not within the powers of the office he holds.  Obama and people in his regime have lied to congress and the American people for the purpose of furthering their cause.  Those who have lied to congress have broken the law, but Obama has chosen not to fulfill his constitutional duty and have them prosecuted.  History shows us how each of these past dictators became more and more blatant in their power grab as they learned nobody would oppose them.  Once the opposition became fully aware of what was happening and was willing to address the situation openly and honestly, it was too late.  FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS, WE MUST TAKE ACTION BEFORE IT IS IT TOO LATE________________________________________
