Obama Signs Health Care Bill, Same Day In History Hitler Becomes Dictator

President Obama signs the National Health Care bill into law on March 23, 2010.

This nearly 3,000 page bill contains, among other things, mandatory requirements for membership in national health care which will be enforced by the IRS. There will be monetary penalties and jail for failure to be enrolled. The IRS is empowered to hire 17,000 new agents to assist in this enforcement. There are legislative moves to repeal the bill and several states attorneys general are filing lawsuits to challenge the constitutionality of the bill. It is not clear if any of the measures will be able to stop the bill.

This day in 1933 was also a very significant day.

The History Place. com:

“On March 23, 1933, the newly elected members of the German Parliament (the Reichstag) met in the Kroll Opera House in Berlin to consider passing Hitler’s Enabling Act. It was officially called the ‘Law for Removing the Distress of the People and the Reich.’ If passed, it would effectively mean the end of democracy in Germany and establish the legal dictatorship of Adolf Hitler.
The ‘distress’ had been secretly caused by the Nazis themselves in order to create a crisis atmosphere that would make the law seem necessary to restore order. On February 27, 1933, they had burned the Reichstag building, seat of the German government, causing panic and outrage. The Nazis successfully blamed the fire on the Communists and claimed it marked the beginning of a widespread uprising.
On the day of the vote, Nazi storm troopers gathered in a show of force around the opera house chanting, “Full powers – or else! We want the bill – or fire and murder!!” They also stood inside in the hallways, and even lined the aisles where the vote would take place, glaring menacingly at anyone who might oppose Hitler’s will.
Just before the vote, Hitler made a speech to the Reichstag in which he pledged to use restraint.
“The government will make use of these powers only insofar as they are essential for carrying out vitally necessary measures…The number of cases in which an internal necessity exists for having recourse to such a law is in itself a limited one.” – Hitler told the Reichstag. He also promised an end to unemployment and pledged to promote peace with France, Great Britain and the Soviet Union. But in order to do all this, Hitler said, he first needed the Enabling Act."
A two thirds majority was needed, since the law would actually alter the German constitution. Hitler needed 31 non-Nazi votes to pass it. He got those votes from the Center Party after making a false promise to restore some basic rights already taken away by decree.
However, one man arose amid the overwhelming might. Otto Wells, leader of the Social Democrats stood up and spoke quietly to Hitler.
“We German Social Democrats pledge ourselves solemnly in this historic hour to the principles of humanity and justice, of freedom and socialism. No enabling act can give you power to destroy ideas which are eternal and indestructible.”
This enraged Hitler and he jumped up to respond.
“You are no longer needed! – The star of Germany will rise and yours will sink! Your death knell has sounded!”
The vote was taken – 441 for, only 84, the Social Democrats, against. The Nazis leapt to their feet clapping, stamping and shouting, then broke into the Nazi anthem, the Hörst Wessel song.
They achieved what Hitler had wanted for years – to tear down the German Democratic Republic legally and end democracy, thus paving the way for a complete Nazi takeover of Germany.
From this day on, the Reichstag would be just a sounding board, a cheering section for Hitler’s pronouncements.”

Full text of “The Law to Remedy the Distress of the People and the Nation”

“The Reichstag has enacted the following law, which is hereby proclaimed with the assent of the Reichsrat, it having been established that the requirements for a constitutional amendment have been fulfilled:"
Article 1
In addition to the procedure prescribed by the constitution, laws of the Reich may also be enacted by the government of the Reich. This includes the laws referred to by Articles 85 Paragraph 2 and Article 87 of the constitution.
Article 2
Laws enacted by the government of the Reich may deviate from the constitution as long as they do not affect the institutions of the Reichstag and the Reichsrat. The rights of the President remain undisturbed.
Article 3
Laws enacted by the Reich government shall be issued by the Chancellor and announced in the Reich Gazette. They shall take effect on the day following the announcement, unless they prescribe a different date. Articles 68 to 77 of the Constitution do not apply to laws enacted by the Reich government.
Article 4
Treaties of the Reich with foreign states which affect matters of Reich legislation shall not require the approval of the bodies of the legislature. The government of the Reich shall issue the regulations required for the execution of such treaties.
Article 5
This law takes effect with the day of its proclamation. It loses force on 1 April 1937 or if the present Reich government is replaced by another.
Heil Hitler!
Josef Goebbels: “The authority of the Führer has now been wholly established. Votes are no longer taken. The Führer decides. All this is going much faster than we had dared to hope.”

With the stroke of a pen, freedom was lost. Oh, and by the way, when the President signed the health care bill today, he did not sign the “executive order” which supposedly will keep federal funding from being used for abortions. The promise of this executive order, as you recall, is why Rep. Bart Stupak and several other “pro-life” Democrats decided to vote for the health care bill Sunday.

Comments

This type of news is once again just reactive news that is so full of ____. It is so sad to me that if you believe differently you are the enemy. And to put the Health Care bill with Hitler coming into power just reveals the insanity and stupidity of news and posts like this. Hey grow up and learn what a democracy is and learn that there are differences and that is what makes a country great. Oh I forgot we all must think a like and the only way is the conservative way, yeah right.

I was stunned to see President Obama's healthcare bill compared to Hitler's
Enabling act.  The two men are two very different people. Ever since Obama was elected to office he has been expected to be the DAVID COPPERFIELD of the United States, instead of the President of the United States.  Make the deficits disappear, make the economy flourish, reach deep down into his magic hat and pull out healthcare for all americans. Make the immigrants go away with the wave of his magic wand.

How soon we forgot that the president inherited this slopbucket of a mess and now suddenly he is expected to take the blame for the stinking mantle his predecessor let fall upon him.  Other nations must be looking at America and laughing their____off.  Please people!  It is not a crime to disagree with the president but there is a way to disagree.  Never before on national TV has a president of the United States been called a liar.  We need to unite as a nation. In unity there is strength, but a divided house cannot stand and oh what a great fall indeed.   We need to take our eyes off the president and put them on almighty GOD.  Obama is a man, he is not GOD.
Let us sincerely pray for OBAMA, that GOD will allow him to be an instrument of blessing for all americans, small and great, rich and poor, for all races.

Considering that this new health care system is fascist by definition, it fair to connect it to the rise of the world's most famous fascist politician. Just because Hitler committed genocide does not mean that it is tasteless to compare fascist policies of today to his fascist policies. Are we forbidden from comparing any new policies those of of any world leader who has committed genocide?

I completely agree with you sir. Just because Obama signs a Health Care bill on the day Hitler came to power, that doesn't mean that Obama is a dictator or want to be a dictator. Only a fool would jump to such a conclusion.

YES PRAY FOR PRESIDENT STOP BEING SO JUDGEMENTAL ON THE PRESIDENT.

Kindly go away foul troll. You wouldn't understand the Bible in the slightest. 

Normal 0 Normal 0 Could Obama Be America’s First Defacto President?

 

Innocent Americans increasingly are sent to prison based on false evidence manufactured by police forensic crime labs. Now President Obama wants the power to incarcerate U.S. Citizens not on evidence, but for what they might do.   

 

Compare: Two days after the 1933 burning of Germany’s Parliament Building, blamed on communists, Hitler responded with a powerful speech before Parliament. Hitler asked Parliament to suspend sections of the Reich Constitution that protected Citizens' Rights and Civil Liberties. Hitler said the suspension was necessary so government could protect the homeland from being destroyed by communists. Hitler promised Parliament the Constitution would later be restored. After Parliament passed Hitler’s Discriminatory Decrees and Hitler signed it February 28, 1933, Hitler immediately used the news laws to abolished Parliament. See Hitler’s 1933 Discriminatory Laws below:

 

Obama gave a speech in May 2010, that proposed incarcerating in indefinite prolonged detention without evidence, any person government deemed a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future; that would include U.S. Citizens “without evidence of wrongdoing.” With that amount power Obama could like Hitler arrest members of Congress, drag U.S. Citizens off the street and from their homes to be imprisoned indefinitely based only on Government’s claim they are a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future.

 

If Congress approves Obama’s categories of people likely to engage in violent acts, overnight millions of lawful U.S. activists could be subject to Indefinite Prolonged Detention. When you examine Obama’s speech, it appears Obama wants retroactive power to incarcerate anyone government claims (prior) supported violent acts on the premise, that person is likely to engage in violent acts in the future: U.S. activists would be vulnerable because no activist can control what other activists or groups might do illegally they network with domestically or overseas. Government would only have to claim a person; group or organization might commit a violent act in the future to order Preventative Detention of lawful participants with no evidence whatsoever. Americans would be afraid to speak out.

 

It is foreseeable any “individual” who writes on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against or entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners could be deemed a “Combatant” or likely to engage in or cause violent acts: government too easily could claim an author’s writings inspired people in the past and will in the future commit violent acts. It is problematic that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings or allowed legal counsel; interrogated, will be prosecuted for ordinary crimes because of their alleged admissions while held in indefinite “Prolonged Detention.”

 

Obama wants the power to override the U.S. Constitution. Obama wants the power to detain indefinitely without probable cause or evidence, any U.S. Citizen based on conjecture someone might do something violent in the future.

 

Obama similar to Hitler is centralizing power in the federal Government by getting passed legislation that U.S. government potentially could use to intimidate and threaten businesses and corporations among others. Hitler got similar laws passed shortly before the burning of the German Parliament building blamed on the communists. Immediately after the fire, Hitler used his new laws to coerce corporations and others to support passage of fascist legislation that suspended provisions of the German Constitution that protected Citizens freedoms and civil liberties. Obama is now approaching a position where he can use similar new laws, including the Patriot Act and 200 asset forfeiture laws to seize any corporation or individual’s assets, force corporations and other institutions to support legislation that threatens or curtails the rights of Americans. This President not only intends to void the U.S. Constitution he is numb to the Majority Will of the American People.
