History Unfolding Before Our Eyes…..

Author: Anonymous

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) – the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x 10. And we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion.  (FoundingFather1776 Notes: It is amazing to me that since his Lordship Obama became President, the media has conveniently “forgotten” about the boondoggle of Iraq and Afghanistan.  The wars were wrong under Bush…..and they are just as wrong under “I-promise-to-get-us-out-if elected” Obama.  Even setting aside the fact that these wars were orchestrated by the Globalists and are a complete fraud – doesn’t ANYONE realize that the $12 billion MONTHLY cost of the Iraq war alone could be better spent here at home!?)

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen!  All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it.

Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning…

As a serious student of history,  I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s In those times, the “savior” was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative “losers” read it right now.

And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did – regularly.

And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand – the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course.

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media – did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and… change. And the people surely got what they voted for.

If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It’s all there in the history books

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe

It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me..

I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections.

    I have chills…You are SO on the mark, it’s frightening. I do not usually promote anything I do, but I would like you to read a post I published called “Twenty-Fifty – a short story”. Your opinion would mean a lot to me.

    Hello “sstorm0730” –

    I would be happy to take a look at your story. You can post a link here or send me an email: FoundingFather1776@gmail.com

    I see two things all around. First, out-right defiance and denial. The fact people could be so utterly opposed to the idea or blind to what is happening around us simply terrifies me. However, what chills me to the bone even more is the second thing I see. It’s fear–cold and hard terror. Whenever you talk about these things, people avert their eyes and hurry away. They know, and they worry, but fear overcomes them. They assume someone else will go out there and fight. They are confident there are others who don’t have a family…don’t have a job to worry about…don’t have something to lose by *doing* something.

    What more is there to lose than our freedom?

    So many people told me they didn’t care what it took, as long as they got universal health care, economic stability, etc. They’ll get it, however not the way they thought, and the pricetag will be far greater than they ever imagined.

    There was a poll several elections ago that showed that people cared more about who won American Idol than who won the Presidential election. It’s no wonder our world is in the state it is. Thing is, I could brag that I didn’t vote for our current president. Though as our country world crumbles down around us, that statement seems pretty hollow.

    Preaching to the choir isn’t going to move the chess pieces around the board. My question concerns the Obama faithful. I don’t see the wind but I do find windfalls now and then.

  5. Concerned Mom Says:

    The internet is not only for “the choir.” More and more people are waking up out of the fog and looking for answers. These types of commentaries are important because they could be *the* starting point for someone else to start looking for more information.

    Not to mention that the powers that be want us to think we are crazy, want us to doubt. Sometimes even the doubt have to be reminded that this is not some figment of our imagination and that this is real.

  6. foundingfather1776 Says:

    Your comment is “Spot-on” Concerned Mom!

    It is true many of my regular readers may already know much of the information presented here, but we get many new readers every day.

    Overall, more people *are* starting to “Wake-up” and that is because the bad economy and political situation is prompting them to (finally) start asking some serious questions. I have had many people contact me privately and say that they initially did not believe my information, but when they researched it for themselves they were shocked at what they learned.

    Once eyes start to open to the truth, it is hard for them to go back to being closed.

    It is also nice to share information among like-minded people. The media tries desperately to portray anyone that doesn’t adhere to the status quo as a kook or worse. We know what their games are.

    The schadenfreude of watching the arrogant old-media (newspapers, TV and even conventional “talk-radio”)
    whither away on the vine is delicious.

    The growth of the blogosphere and the knowledge it carries gives me hope that eventually we may actually turn the tide. If enough people start to realize the truth; by the time they shut-down the internet, it won’t matter. The genie will be out of the bottle.

    Yes! Absolutely. I have been dealing with this for years and it is liberating that there are others who are finally seeing these things. Plus, even though I have known much of this information, I find new things as I keep digging and it certainly helps give a fuller picture. We know the goal of the-powers-that-be, but exactly what they are doing to get there and how they are doing it is very important, indeed.

    The thing is we MUST keep is hope. There is a coordinated effort by these people to make us believe that the odds are so stacked against us there is no way we could possibly win. They want us to give up hope, to despair, so we will be complacent when they finally come to take us away. It is HARD not to get depressed and upset, but we must remember that the end is written. They will be defeated. The how and when is yet to be seen…and much of it will be determined by what we do.

    The fact that Obama lied doesn’t concern me, I expect and have come to accept that almost all candidates lie. Obama is only a tool in the workshop of the elite money brokers of the world.
    Ron Paul’s bill, HR 1207, to audit the Fed is gaining grond, this gives me hope, the Fed needs to be audited and disbanned. We need to return to money backed by silver or gold, damn the words of our government, the people need to take back the country our government has raped and burned.
    Don’t forget to get behind the movement to free our country from the worlds banking community, return it to the people.
    Keep up the good work.

    “Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections”

    With all due respect, if you think there’s going to be a “next” election you may, indeed, consider yourself:

    “foolish, naive, or both.” I’d wager both.

    “It’s all there in the history books”

    And which history books would those be? You know when I was a child my history book told me Indians were dangerous pagans and crazed scalp-snatchers etc.

    It took a long time, a long time, for critical thinkers and true historians to get the truth out about the native Americans. A hard, ugly truth it was, not readily digested by the thicker headed, not then, and often, not even now.

    And with all due respect again, for a dedicated historian bla-bla-bla, you’ve fallen head-first into the same nauseating propaganda soup about Hitler and the Nazis.

    Put things in context; how did Germany end up in a Depression? Deal with that first, then root about and try to identify who and what were the driving forces behind that Depression, then check out views of Hitler & Co. from different history books, ones, say, that don’t still promulgate stories about “the crazed redskins.”

    I could go on and on, but let’s just say this: I scoff at you, the self-professed historian, ’cause you don’t know the half of it…”

    “When Winston Churchill [….] he was booed and called a crazy troublemaker.”

    And while you’re at it, take another good, long, unemotional look at Winston, and at those in whose employ he was, before holding him up as a beacon of light.

    I remember well, when I was 17 when a friend who was a bit of a communist, warned me :” You need to get out of the country, they want you !” I had refused to join the commie-youthgroups, and instead defended the church youthgroup.
    I had one handbag full of stuff.. and fled East Germany via Berlin, and made it w.out getting shot. What followed then for a 17 year old alone, in a strange place is a whole other story.
    When I was 5 or so.. I rememeber my parents crying.. and a terrifying nasty and controlling voice was screaming on the radio. Hitler.
    My father was a lutheran pastor.. and spoke to people from the pulpit.. to NOT support Hitler.
    After this the Gestapo picked him up 3 times ( from our home ) to put him in jail…..
    They did “something” to him, he died shortly after.
    Just a few memories, a little voice..that is trying to wake those sleeping Americans. Think it can’t happen to you ? Think again…

  12. stef Says:

    Unbelievable! Celline, aren’t you the busy little hypocrite though?

    Kissing ass all over the place, and pretending you don’t read my comments, but you did mention the fact there are other FF forums where “dear Stef” can go to…ha!

    I see you plan to drag your knotty fingers over your keyboard in every corner of this site. You senile old broads are devious, and that’s a fact!

    Adios muchacha! Ha!

    @Concerned Mom, you are so very correct. When I read your comment about:” The end is written” it called to my mind.. that we do not only have a great responsibilty to everyone we meet.. and in general.
    And most important of all, to not despair.
    Time will come where people despair, and someone out there has to be strong and spread hope and love. Things that seem to slip into the background more and more.
    A loveless and cold world, indeed, we have great responsibilty to not despair because of the Hope we have.

  14. ericswan Says:

    Any you have been on the run ever since.

  15. Celline Says:

    @eric :” WHO ?” has been on the run? Splain please….

  16. stef Says:

    What’s always puzzled me is why the elderly cling to life with such ferocity, such intensity. It’s pathetic, really.

    You’d think after 80 or so years in this hell, and almost as many years busting everybody’s balls, they’d sorta look forward to kicking the bucket, so to speak.

    Quite the contrary. That’s the sort will outlive us all.
