Well, this is not the first time that evil, conniving politicians have used a big lie to garner more political power. Time for a history lesson.
The vast majority of you are too young to remember the Reichstag Fire, but the tactic employed by Adolf Hitler sure bears some similarities to the Democrat leadership use of Brian Sicknick’s corpse as a casus belli for going to war against the people who dared support President Trump:
The Reichstag fire (German: Reichstagsbrand, was an arson attack on the Reichstag building, home of the German parliament in Berlin, on Monday 27 February 1933, precisely four weeks after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. Hitler’s government stated that Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch council communist, was the culprit, and it attributed the fire to communist agitators. . . . The day after the fire, the Reichstag Fire Decree was passed. The Nazi Party used the fire as a pretext to claim that communists were plotting against the German government, which made the fire pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany.
The Reichstag fire was not the only staged event that the Nazis used as a pretext. WWII started with the attack on Poland, which ostensibly was provoked by a Polish attack. But Hitler’s Nazi henchmen staged the assault on a German radio station:
On Aug. 31, 1939, Nazi agents staged a fake attack on the German radio transmission tower at Gleiwitz, on the German-Polish border. Adolf Hitler used this “attack” as a pretext for the invasion of Poland the next day. . . .
Reinhard Heydrich [head of the SD] devised a scheme to give Hitler his justification for an attack upon Poland. Several border incidents would be created, under what was called “Operation Himmler,” after Heydrich’s boss. An Einsatzgruppe unit under Naujocks would attack the Gleiwitz radio tower along the border then broadcast Polish propaganda into the Reich. This attack would be the centerpiece of “Operation Himmler.” Hitler had ordered his military to invade Poland on Aug. 26. Heydrich and Naujocks had only a few days to get things prepared for the attack on Gleiwitz on Aug. 25.
Naujocks and his team traveled to the town and checked into a hotel, claiming to be engineers looking for suitable materials to mine in the area. Under various pressures to avert war, and sensing the Poles and their Western allies might back down, Hitler postponed the invasion until Sept. 1. Naujocks and his men spent nearly two weeks in Gleiwitz waiting for the order to proceed. . . .
Finally, on Aug. 31, the order arrived at Oberschlesischer Hotel in Gleiwitz and Naujocks’ team went into action and rendezvoused en route to the tower with Müller, who handed over the bodies. In the book “SS Intelligence,” historian Edmund L. Blandford wrote:
“Naujocks then took his squad into the radio station, finding the two men on duty ready and compliant. The Polish speaker then yelled a short tirade into the microphone calling for war to begin between Poland and Germany. The squad then ran outside, firing off their pistols as they went. Years later, Naujocks would try to cash in on his claim as the ‘man who started the war.’ ”
Fortunately, the Democrats prevarication has been exposed. The so-called media, with a few exceptions, enthusiastically signed on to cheer-lead the lie and, until today, managed to bamboozle a large segment of the American population into swallowing a damnable falsehood.
The lawyers for the “insurrectionists” need to fight back viciously against the malfeasance of the Department of Justice in pursuing the arrests of men and women who entered the Capitol who were not responsible for the death of a single person. The only person who committed murder that day–January 6, 2021–is an unnamed Capitol Hill police officer. This must not be allowed to stand.
No less outrageous is the dearth of outrage by our “dear leaders” as it pertains to the constitutional violations of those charged and incarcerated.
Compare Maxine Waters’ calls for intensified civil unrest with Trump’s remarks on the day of.
Words mean only what the democrats say they mean, like danger from covid:
not applicable to the governor of MI, or those crossing the border illegally. Or “Mostly peacefully” protesting.
The masking she used in a photograph I have seen of the speech gives her the perfect criminal look. I notice that Cahill, the judge in the Chauvin case, has kind of hinted to the extent he feels he can get away with in the climate created by the riots and unrest, in a response to the mistrial motion, that any conviction from the case may legally tainted by the climate created by the unrest.
once again, glenn greenwald’s got it covered: https://greenwald.substack.com/p/the-media-lied-repeatedly-about-officer
This is proof of what most of us already knew: that the new regime was using the Reichstag Fire template and is using the legal system like a totalitarian regime to create show trials against regime victims. Why hasn’t Bailey’s name (the name suggested on some websites but doubted by others as the murderer of Ashli Babbitt, the woman shot in cold blood by a member of the Capital Filth (using the British slang for corrupt police) or anybody else who may have been the killer’s) name been released by the Goebbels media? Kudos for mentioning Sender Gleiwitz, the Nazi radio station provocation leading to the invasion of Poland in a larger version of this article.
Gulf of Tonkin “attacks” used to justify US engagement in Vietnam?
My take on Crazy Maxine’s recent remarks: she was sent by Nancy Pelosi to gin-up headlines to divert news stories away from the Capitol Hill autopsy report – which was delayed as long as possible, to come out only when media attentions were focused elsewhere – the Chauvin trial.
And Maxine was sent up as an insurance policy to make sure they stole the 24 hour media cycle headlines. People from LA do not just travel to cold Minnesota unless on an intentional mission – run fast and break things.
Yes, I am that cynical. Nothing the top Democrat do is without malignant and self-serving intent. Nothing.
The President of the United States of America weighs in on the Chauvin trial outcome. He puts his thumb on the scale of justice. He should be disbarred for life.
How dare he say at this critical time of inflamed passions reaching the “right decision is overwhelming”. How dare he. He is a hateful, mean, petty man wholly unqualified for this high office.
No. The framing of the Capitol protests as an insurgency was effective, and accomplished its goal: ending election fraud inquiries. Anyone who continued was stigmatized effectively as a nut. Furthermore, it justified the threat of purging individuals who dare sympathize with the protests from the gov, military and police ranks.
Sure, the truth will eventually break through, but politically the revelation meaningless and demoralizing to the victims of the lie.
Yes. It’s like Sherlock Holmes’ dog: what happened on the 6th was what didn’t happen.
Because that was the only act of violence that day. There was no attempt to disrupt the certification of the electors after Trump said,
And the crowd later shouted … ‘Hang Mike Pence! Hang Mike Pence!
No incitement there.
All this means is that DOJ can’t charge anybody with murder. They did charge two with assault on Sicknick and were no doubt chomping at the bit to charge them with his murder. Over 400 have been charged. Most for little more than trespassing. They’ll probably have those charges dropped or end up with a fine just like most of those arrested during the BLM protests. I’m wondering about those conspiracy charges. What the hell did those clowns think they were going to accomplish? Were they planning on incapacitating enough Democrats so that the Republicans could call a smaller quorum of the joint session and certify Trump as the winner? That’s the only way I can think of it working.
Coherency is not a pre-requisite for believers, what was John Wilkes Booth’s plan. One of the reasons I chimed in was that I spent wayyy to much time listening to the believers on youtube and they thought Trump was going to ride into the capitol on a white horse. Doug Tenapei was an annoying chap.
1. Trump was going to use the insurrection act or …
2. If you can get Congress enough electoral votes so that Biden goes below the magical 370, then the election goes to the House, one vote per state where the Republicans have a majority of states and voila, Trump is in.
BTW 2. is actually plausible but I doubt the people thought it through to that level. All the knew was that their champion had some parliamentary voodoo and he told them to show up and make history.
Chauvin verdict: Guilty – Suicide by cop.
My thanks to Larry, Col. Lang and those few who dare to stand up to the mendacity, hypocrisy, and downright fascistic practices of the Democrats, RINOS, multinational corporations, and their megaphoned goose-steppers in the MSM. Who would’ve thought that HONESTY would require so much courage these days – in the United States of America, the Land of the Free of all places – now that the lives and livelihoods of the brave can be so easily and so happily destroyed by partisan attackers? Who would’ve thought, in the wake of so much costly, deadly violence and destruction perpetrated by leftists all summer long and continuing to this day, that some unarmed Jan. 6, 2021 trespassers, many of whom were even ushered into the Capitol by law enforcement officers, would be so disproportionately vilified???
When are enough major political figures (thinking of all of the spineless Republicans who offer lip service AT MOST) and media people going to stand up against this intellectual dishonesty and erosion of rights? There are a few stalwarts but not as many as needed. I would’ve never dreamed a few years ago that I’d be in such agreement with the leftist journalist Glenn Greenwald as I am, but the guy’s got GUTS and isn’t afraid to spell it all out.
And now, I suppose we’re going to either see injustice served in the Chauvin trial or else yet another wave of violence and destruction by anarchistic/racist shakedown bullies. The Democrats have shamelessly indulged in jury tampering, aided by their mouthpieces in the MSM. First, by the despicable Maxine Waters who’s been inciting violence and destruction, and now Biden, who’s suggesting Chauvin is without a doubt guilty before the verdict’s been handed in. Does anyone really think President Corn Pop’s able to fully comprehend the evidence? They’ve both interfered with the right of DUE PROCESS with their pronouncements, and should have to pay. But I won’t hold my breath since the notion of “rights” is no longer inalienable but selective, as deemed by partisans.
Underpinnings of our US system of government, systematically destroyed:
1. Of the people, by the people, for the people
2. Three independent branches of government in checks and balances
3. Independent Fourth Estate – the press
4. Participation in religious communities- moral compass
5. Public education – to be an informed voter
I am so sorry slavery was ever brought to our land. There seems to be no way to cleanse this original sin. Not war, not law, not monetary compensation, not the electoral process manifesting full and equal participation.
If the American Reichstag Fire conspiracy blows up and no one hears the explosion, was there a conspiracy? I think not.
Only deplorable racist right wing extremist conspiracy theorists “know” about the explosion – and they are lying enemies of the state. It never happened.
Unfortunately, that looks like how it is under the post-legal usurping fraudulent regime.
As long as high tech provides the funds and the indifference, we now have our new status quo. Mob rule.
