Skip to comments.History Unfolding - Are We Poised for another Third Reich?
Posted on 08/12/2011 6:54:03 AM PDT by Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus
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 have nothing substantive to add. I just think it’s funny that the authors last name is “Kaiser.”
der 0berFuhrer Hussein 0bama and der ReichFuhrers Eric Holder and Janet Incompetano think so!
While I have the same feeling as this guy does, it sort of bothers me that he misrepresents who he is. He would seem to be a physics professor at MIT, which is nothing to be ashamed of, but not exactly what one would guess from the words quoted above.
LOL, to quote Sgt. Schultz, “Ach, Colonel Hogan, tings vere better vhen ve had an emperor.”
Ja, Herr Kaiser,
You need to add into your landscape painting the effect of him supporting the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt and him pushing old borders on a little in defensible Israel. His support of Islam in general right down to trying to change the history of America by trying to tell Americans that the founding fathers had ramadang dinners in the White House....
It would be the 4th Reich then...
Seriously, why is everyone so obsessed with the Nazis? History, and even recent history, have given us dictatorships and Governments just as bad, or far worse.
Sounds like this guy has been inside Obama’s head. Hope he took a good long soapy hot shower when he got out of there.
...”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.”
Some people want to live to be able to see the future while others just want to live to be grandparents.
‘tis odd that $2 trillion has dissipated from the public and no one is much concerned about it.
PGR? That is a gross overstatement with the exception of the present government who stepped into a war without congressional approval. A war of personal goals to support his MB. It had no other functional purpose. Clearly he overstepped the presidents role as American interests were not threatened unless a North African caliphate IS in America’s interest.
At this point we have a dick.tater running the ship.
Thoughts similar to this article crossed my mind when reading about Anders Breivik’s shooting in Oslo, and how there are some parallels there in the strong appeals to nationalism, his imprisonment (where presumably he, like Hitler, will continue to write) and the fact that it seems he’s working with others who share his vision. I think places like Norway are the places to watch for things like this.
First post, btw.
Dr. David Kaiser is a respected historian whose published works have covered a broad range of topics, from European Warfare to American League Baseball. Born in 1947, the son of a diplomat, Kaiser spent his childhood in three capital cities: Washington D.C., Albany , New York , and Dakar , Senegal . He attended Harvard University, graduating in 1969 with a B.A. in history. He then spent several years more at Harvard, gaining a PhD in history, which he obtained in 1976. He served in the Army Reserve from 1970 to 1976.
He is a professor in the Strategy and Policy Department of the United States Naval War College . He has previously taught at Carnegie Mellon, Williams College and Harvard University. Kaisers latest book, The Road to Dallas, about the Kennedy assassination, was just published by Harvard University Press.
Imperial Japan, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, and Mugabe immediately come to mind. There are others, but no one had the resources to inflict such human devastation on the World as the little pr**k, Hitler. You could probably argue the Romans and others caused wide-spread misery, but they were pikers compared to Hitler and his Axis.
This is a hoax. The alleged author denies that he wrote it.
