"Necessity is the excuse for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of the tyrant and the creed of the slave."
Since writing "Obama's Legalization of Slavery and Systematic Population Reduction", on March 18, 2012, I have been deluged with emails and a smattering of requests to do radio interviews. Most of the email content was very consistent in that I witnessed a collective heartfelt expression of profound shock, dismay and even fear as most of the individuals who emailed me, were coming to the realization that America's descent into absolute tyranny is nearly complete. Yet, I must admit that a couple of the emails I received accused me of overreacting with regard to my conclusions about the Obama Executive Order (EO) and that his EO was merely "an updating" of a very similar EO enacted by Bill Clinton.
Among the requests I received for radio interviews, came in the form of a voicemail I received from the Denver based "Peter Boyles Show" (KHOW 630AM, a Clear Channel station). Remember, it was Clear Channel which drove prominent Phoenix talk show host Charles Goyette (KFYI) from the airwaves and banned the playing of any music from the Dixie Chicks on any of their affiliates because both Goyette and the renowned country music group dared to question the existence of weapons of mass destruction as the reason behind the pre-emptive military invasion of Iraq in the second Gulf War.
Subsequently, I was stunned that KHOW, a Clear Channel affiliate, would want to have me on the air to discuss such a constitutionally back-breaking EO in light of their previous history of practicing extreme censorship in response to any criticism with regard to the executive branch's sense of entitlement when it comes to global imperialism on behalf of the Wall Street Financial Complex. However, my bewilderment soon faded when I visited KHOW's website and read an article entitled "National Defense Resources Preparedness” Executive Order: Power Grab Or Mere Update. After reading the phrase "or mere update," it dawned upon me that the intent of the interview was most likely designed to discredit my conclusions by accusing me of overreacting to Obama's newest EO. Unfortunately, I did not reach Boyles' producer, Greg Hollenback, until after the show had ended and subsequently I did not make an appearance. I would have relished the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with a member of the Clear Channel establishment media in order to wake up a few more Americans as to the tyranny we now face.
I freely admit that I did briefly pause and wonder if I indeed was overreacting Obama's March 16th, 2012 EO. After some brief self-examination, the clear answer was an absolute and emphatic no! Although Obama's EO is almost an identical update to Clinton's EO 12919 (1994), we would be wise to take note that in Section 201(b) of the Obama version, Obama inserted the phrase “under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.” This enables the President, solely based upon his own authority, to declare peacetime martial law which is tantamount to the establishment of an indefinite dictatorship. Also, the intent behind the Obama EO must be considered within the context of the times that we presently live in. To that point, Eric Holder, on behalf of President Obama, is asserting the power to assassinate Americans, anytime, anywhere, for any reason or for no reason, whatsoever. Further, President Obama is asserting the power to kidnap and indefinitely imprison Americans without a trial under the NDAA. Finally, the Department of the Defense, operating under the ultimate authority of President Obama, is asserting the power to label legitimate protesting as an act of terrorism.
When one thoughtfully considers the totality of Obama's recent and reckless actions, there can be no doubt that America is witnessing the systematic and incremental implementation of Obama's modern day version of the Nazi Enabling Act.
The Enabling Act permitted the German cabinet to enact previously prohibited legislation, which included laws which clearly deviated from and profoundly altered the meaning of the German constitution. As with Obama's unconstitutional actions, this was accomplished without the consent of the Reichstag. Within the parameters of the Enabling Act, the Nazis created "Special Courts" to punish political dissent in a strikingly similar manner identified in the Obama sponsored NDAA as well as a number of declarations and proclamations referenced in the previous paragraph. Also contained in the Enabling Act was a series of civil laws that barred Jews from holding civil service positions as well as jobs in the legal, medical and teaching professions.
As we collectively ponder Obama's next move, and given Obama's decidedly anti-Christian attitude, I have to wonder if we will not be soon substituting the word "Christian" in place of the word "Jew" in the next round of his emerging version of the Enabling Act.
In a poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) regarding apparent inactivity of German citizens following the Nazi rise to power and their subsequent persecution of their chosen target groups.
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for me,
There was no one left to speak out.
If you strain your ears you might be able to hear the sound of boots marching, in unison, as they head in your direction. If clear your nostrils and inhale deeply, you may get a whiff from the odor of burning books. And if you take the time to look upon the annals of history, you may recall that Heinrich Heine prophetically stated, nearly two centuries ago, "Where they burn books, they will ultimately burn people."
