Hyperbole?  Not so fast.  Most here have already read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein  and The Family by Jeff Sharlett.  And I am sure most of you have read Howard Zinn's A Peoples History, United States

Most here know about Project Paperclip.  If not, do read up on it.  Project Paperclip helps explain how fascism was imported to the USA after WWII.

I have taken all I have learned from the above and believe that today's Tea Party GOP is the culmination of at least 80 years of planning by those who don't respect the foundational principles of America.

I believe the fascist goals pre-date WWII in the US.  Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican, tried to end their fascist plans:

Roosevelt attempted to move the Republican Party (GOP) toward Progressivism, including trust busting and increased regulation of businesses. Roosevelt coined the phrase "Square Deal" to describe his domestic agenda, emphasizing that the average citizen would get a fair share under his policies.
The globalists of the early 20th Century went underground and set up many secret societies.  The Family is just one, the John Birch Society is another.  The labor movement put a dent into their unfettered profits and they haven't stopped trying to undermine and destroy all the gains made possible by FDR FOR the American workers.   The sons and grandsons of those original globalists continue their efforts to kill any/all Social Safety nets here and abroad.  Austerity is just an excuse.

They believe that the end justifies the means.

I rewrote this authoritarian premise:  THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANNESS

The US fascist fans funded Hitler, a fact born by the research of many.  Even IBM helped Hitler.

I provide the details in the following diary for those interested in an historical sojourn to the roots of the movement now led by the Koch brothers, sons of one of the founders of the John Birch Society:

80 Years of Planning: The Kochs + The Family + Birchers = No Democracy

Their goal: A Proto-Fascist (Business run) Government, Union Free Country, Privatized Education, and the End of Social Safety Nets all in the Name of Jesus and Freedom.

These fanatics call themselves Christian, but are not.  They will stop at nothing to gain total control.  Hubris is their middle name.  Greed is one of their major motivators.  But CONTROL is the driving force.  They want to play God.

They have taught, raised, praised, and promoted the Romneys and Ryans here and in every country in the world.  They came out of the dark corners with the Tea Party here.  They feel emboldened.  And, they may be winning.  

It is literally up to the citizens of the United States to stand up and stop these plans before they actually succeed in controlling the world and all its peoples.

Hyperbole?  I think not.  

We must become informed, inform others, and stop cooperating with their plans.

I hope you will read and share.  It's a lot to take in, but it's critical to know what we are all struggling against.

Also, this is a very interesting read:

1933 We Were Warned. The Warning Applies Today. Berlin Ambassador William Dodd's Speech

If only the world had heeded the warnings of history, so cleverly laid before the audience by Ambassador Dodd.  For that matter, Dodd's speech, given to the Berlin Branch of the American Chamber of Commerce, could have been directed at the US, Europe, and the world today.  Granted, there is not a blatant, heinous Hitler rising to power; however, the field is ripe for a repeat, clearly demonstrated by history over and over again.  

The social experiment, in scientific terms, has a fixed number of variables.  Why is it so difficult for world leaders to learn, adjust policies, and avoid the disasterous outcomes repeated innumerable times?  Of course, human nature, fight or flight, survival, and what we call character defects, etc.  This article won't address this debate.

However, Dodd's speech brilliantly walks the audience through history perfectly depicting the wrongful policies that repeatedly create chaos and misery.  The speech is masterful.  I can't believe I hadn't heard of this before.

Can we hear the warnings today?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  The author of that book is Jim Marrs (9+ / 0-)

    Do you know who he is and what he believes?

    is an American former newspaper journalist and New York Times best-selling author of books and articles on a wide range of alleged cover ups and conspiracies.[1] Marrs is a prominent figure in the JFK conspiracy press and his book Crossfire was a source for Oliver Stone's film JFK. He has written books asserting the existence of government conspiracies regarding aliens, 9/11, telepathy, and secret societies. He was once a news reporter in the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex and has taught a class on the Kennedy Assassination at University of Texas at Arlington for 30 years. Marrs is a member of the Scholars for 9/11 Truth.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/...
    He is a conspiracy theorist! Big time! I would stay away from him. He is a truther, a believer of aliens, a prominent believer in JFK conspiracy theories and telepathy. Wow!

      Marrs world, the Conspiracy began many years ago:

      [A]ccording to the theory of evolution, Cro-Magnon developed out of the far more primitive Neanderthal via an intermediate species which links the two. However, for 150 years they have been searching for this missing link, and, in my opinion, they will never find it. More and more research is emerging that indicates that Cro-Magnon roan was the result of alien genetic manipulation that was applied to Neanderthal Man.
      Sometimes this is known as the Sumerian Conspiracy:
      One of the greatest conspiracies concerns humanity's true origins and this involves the Sumerian account of the Anunnaki - beings who came from heaven down to Earth.
      The conspirators these days are the usual suspects:
      I think the answer to the question of who really controls the world can be found within the secret societies: The Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, The Council on Foreign Relations, and so on. These secret societies have been behind every war and revolution in the last two centuries at least.
      Then there are the cattle mutilations . . . .

      Marrs is a bongwater boy.

      •  Unfortunately, in this country and in many nations (5+ / 0-)

        Jew-hating is a good niche to make money. You can blame all the problems of the world on the Jews, they are easy scapegoats. Sometimes they control America, sometimes they control the world's financial industry, sometimes they control the media...and the most horrid and ridiculous thing of all is that people actually believe it to be true. That is why the Jews have suffered throughout history and continue to suffer in many ways.

        There are many people in the world who believe the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to be true.

        Jim Marr is just another Jew-hater (though more subtle than your typical anti-semites), making money.

        See here:

        In Rule by Secrecy, Marrs of course goes out of his way to disavow anti-Semitism-but in terms that are clearly anti-Semitic! "While it may be true that secret organizations in the past were built along both racial and religious grounds" and "[a]lthough many international financiers are of Jewish descent," it is unfair "to accuse the Hebrew race of an international conspiracy." Note the slippery use of "Hebrew race" in place of the more common and accurate term "Jews." He complains that "the broad brush of anti-Semitism frequently has been used to besmirch anyone offering a conspiratorial view of history."

        After this requisite disavowal, Marrs goes on to portray the "gigantic and secretive Rothschilds banking empire" as the "covert and indirect" power behind nearly every government on Earth (ultimately tracing their grand design for world domination to the Illuminati and Masonic conspiracies dating to ancient Egypt). His "sources" are the usual ones, all too familiar to followers of the far right and fascism.

        Topping the list, of course, is the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, the purported Jewish conspiracy masterplan which served as propaganda for the Czarist pogroms and then the Nazi Holocaust. While Marrs does concede that the Protocols are a hoax, he nonetheless vests much legitimacy in them: "It is the possibility of 'historical truth' which has kept the Protocols in circulation since its inception. Today, modern conspiracy writers see it as a real program predating Nazism or Communism... The Protocols may indeed reflect a deeper conspiracy beyond its intended use to encourage anti-Semitism, one hidden within the secret upper ranks of the Iluminati and Freemasonry."

    •  Extraordinary claims neede ezxtraordinary evidence (0+ / 0-)

      To believe the official "Warren Commission" report, the forensic evidence requires that you believe the following:

      According to the Single Bullet Theory, a three-centimeter (1.2")-long copper-jacketed lead-core 6.5-millimeter rifle bullet fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository passed through President Kennedy’s neck and Governor Connally’s chest and wrist and embedded itself in the Governor’s thigh. If so, this bullet traversed 15 layers of clothing, 7 layers of skin, and approximately 15 inches of tissue, struck a necktie knot, removed 4 inches of rib, and shattered a radius bone. The bullet was found on a gurney in the corridor at the Parkland Memorial Hospital, in Dallas, after the assassination. The Warren Commission found that this gurney was the one that had borne Governor Connally.[3] This bullet became a key Commission exhibit, identified as CE 399. Its copper jacket was completely intact.
      Then add to that the fact that Oswald was himself almost immediately assassinated by a terminally-ill nightclub owner with extensive ties to the Chicago mob, the American organization that lost the most of the tourism and casino business in Cuba, and whose capo's girlfriend Judith Exner also had a "dalliance" with JFK, and you'll pardon me for having some questions, such as, where is the extraordinary evidence for the extraordinary claims the Warren Commission made?  And I'm entirely puzzled how having those questions makes me an anti-Semite.

  •  Prescott Bush was involved (9+ / 0-)

    in trying to overthrow FDR, and his father Samuel Bush made his fortune selling armaments.

    The dynasty of death and destruction is limited to small group of very powerful families who have made trillions at the expense of billions of human beings over the past 100 years.

    Bush Family is quite prominent in this calculus.

    Remember that Fred Koch, father of the Koch Brothers worked for Joe Stalin for 11 years, trying to make a fortune off Russian oil and gas.

    When Koch found he couldn't control the situation in Russia to his liking, he founded the John Birch Society, which uses the same propaganda methods Stalin used to terrorize hundreds of millions, just twisted to fit America's hyper- bigoted and hyper-religious extremist society of that time.

    That these RW freaks can port this level of bigotry and hatred into the 21st century should frighten any thinking person about the chances of humanity surviving more than a few more decades.

  •  Heads up (8+ / 0-)

    Jim Marr's website links to Rense. Rense is not only CT, it's VILE CT. That alone is enough to make me never want to pick up a book of his.

    I would seriously reconsider promoting this guy's work.

    •  Rense is also an anti-semite (5+ / 0-)

      This is what ADL says about Rense:

      Many of the posts on Rense.com link to some of the most virulent anti-Jewish writings on the Internet. For example, the site regularly links to RealJewNews, an anti-Semitic Web site run by Milton Kapner, a rabidly anti-Semitic street preacher who goes by the name Brother Nathanael and describes himself as a Jewish convert to Greek Orthodoxy. Rense.com has also linked to Judicial-Inc, which offers a regularly updated collection of articles accusing Jews of plotting every perceived ill in the world, from the mistreatment of Native Americans to the promulgation of pornography, to even being Jack the Ripper, a late 19th-century English serial killer. On its front page, Rense.com often features anti-Semitic images by the conspiratorial artist David Dees, including some that explicitly deny the Holocaust. The Web site also maintains an archive of Dees' images, many of which are explicitly anti-Semitic.

      In addition to its links to the Web sites of other anti-Semites, Rense.com posts original articles. Several praise Kevin MacDonald, the anti-Semitic California State University, Long Beach professor. Other articles argue that Judaism is an exclusivist "racial credo," and that American Jews staged the 9/11 terrorist attacks for their own financial gain and to induce the American people to "endorse wars of aggression and genocide on the nations of the Middle East and the theft of their resources for the benefit of Israel." Another article, produced exclusively for Rense.com, argues that Zionism is "the belief in the 'Jewish' state, the primary one being the United States, and of secondary significance, the state of Israel."

      A disclaimer on Rense.com denies official endorsement of any of these views, but Jeff Rense's assertions on the show make clear he is himself anti-Semitic. For example, during July 2007 broadcasts, Rense claimed, "A lot of Zionists were in the slave trade too. A tremendous Zionist/Jewish participation in that filthy business." He also alleged, "The Neocons are essentially servants of the Zionist/Jewish/ Rothschild cartel that is pushing the Middle East agenda," and referred to Zionists as "evil Satanists."

      This diary also conflates public intellectuals like Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and the late Howard Zinn with conspiracy theorists such as Marrs. The assertions by the former are based on reality The assertions by Marrs are just plain loony.
    •  but (4+ / 0-)

      he is a prophet without peer. Look how he called the 2008 presidential election:

      Before long it will all crack open. The real powers have left the Bushes with enough rope to hang themselves, and then they will put Hillary Clinton in to carry the flag.
      Oh wait . . . .

      At least he is an equal opportunity purveyor of fruitcakes, heavy-breathing over some of the primary obsessions of the wingding right:

      Yes, the globalists or New World Order types want to dissolve the USA and put in its place the North American Union, just like the European Union. We have a heritage of individual liberty and freedom and they want to destroy us, but their big problem is we have guns.
      Marrs tells us what we all Know: that Reagan killed John Lennon, and alien technology took down the World Trade Center.
      In 1980 Ronald Reagan was elected and the neocons were starting to foment plans for war in central America, and John Lennon could have been the focus of a new anti-war movement. In December 1980, they staged a preemptive strike to protect their plans and Mark David Chapman killed Lennon. It was not the first time that a Manchurian candidate’s attack was triggered by J.D. Salinger’s book, Catcher in the Rye.
      If some exotic technology unknown to the public was used to bring down the twin towers, it provides a perfect foil for the government. They give out any cover story they want and no one can offer any acceptable alternative.
      This is of course the perfect man for this here Daily Kos.

    Jim Marrs. Given his history, you'd have been better served to identify the passages in his book that you found persuasive and research documentation to support those particular contentions from other sources.

    You have fallen (jumped into) the classic DKos rhetorical trap. You have given those who believe Democratic electoral victory will effectively retard the advancement of globalist fascism a ready excuse to avoid discussion of the clarion warnings raised by Klein, Sharlett, Zinn (and a host of other credible analysts).

    My hope is that, after the election, progressives throughout the nation will find the energy and the will to fight against all those in our government (in both parties) who willfully enable the agenda of 21st Century fascism.

    The rich and powerful have always throughout history tried to amass more power and more riches, at the cost of whoever.  That is not new, and it is not fascism.
    Fascism became necessary in the context of democracy - if power rests with the voters, the voters have to somehow be persuaded to vote against their better interests and in the interests of the rich and powerful.
    So yes, I agree that the ground has been carefully prepared in the US:  Destruction of the legitimacy of the media, destruction of the legitimacy of government, destruction of the legitimacy of science - destruction of the legitimacy of FACTS.
    And Karl Rove has been successful.  But the final prize still eludes him and his clients.
    But Karl Rove is not stupid.  He can see what happened in Germany, when the same class who are now his clients moved to consummate their plan by getting a rabble-rousing no-hoper elected, and succeeded.  The German industrialists and conservatives were convinced they could control "their man".  They were wrong.
    Karl Rove is not going to let that happen to his clients.  Dubbya (like Reagan) was a great front man - personable, dim, easily led, gullible and, crucially, not a demagogue.  Romney is no demagogue, either, but he is neither personable, nor dim, nor gullible, nor easily led.
    Heaven knows why Romney wants to be president, but I doubt he would meekly do as told, as Reagan and Dubbya did.  That may not matter much, since Romney's interests, inclinations and intentions probably match those of Rove's clients.  But I do believe these distinctions need to be made.
    The final prize is more elusive in the US than it was in Germany - it requires capturing both houses, the presidency and the supreme court.  And it requires operatives to stay beholden.  Romney could turn out to be another Roberts - sympathetic, but unfortunately with a mind and principles of his own.
