The elimination of the German (American) multi-party political system not only brought about the demise of hundreds of newspapers produced by outlawed political parties; it also allowed the state to seize the printing plants and equipment of the Communist and Social Democratic Parties (Democratic Party), which were often turned over directly to the Nazi Party(Republican Party). In the following months, the Nazis (Republicans) established control or exerted influence over independent press organizations. Then they came for me.
Then They Came For Me
Wow, it is amazing that the news before WWII can be interchanged with the
news today. Trump does not like dealing with conflict. He also does not like when someone challenges his authority. This is evident in the way he has been dealing with national security organizations in the US. Listen to the following poem by Martin Niemöller
First, they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Taking Away Security Clearances
Now Trump is using threats of taking away security clearances from the former heads of American security agencies. He is trying to try to stifle their political views, not criminal behavior. There are no implications of criminal behavior from these people.
The White House is releasing a multitude of news stories to distract from the Helsinki news to distract the American public. These are just a few of the stories that the White House has created in order to distract from the Helsinki summit.
- Trump’s tweet in all capitals to the Iranians
- The release of the FISA application (unprecedented)
- The release of the Cohen, Trump conversation tapes
These are just a few of the news stories that the White House has created to distract the public. We also have the big news story about Putin coming to the White House. I believe the reason Trump and Putin are doing this is another distraction for the American people. I believe that Trump and Putin have the following plan. At Helsinki, they planned to make Putin look strong and dominant in the public arena. Putin now has raised the public opinion of himself in the Russians eyes. When Putin comes to the US they will do the opposite making Trump look like the strong man helping the Republicans in the fall elections.
Trump knows how to use the media to his benefit. A man that can lie six times a days as president has no morals.
