The Reincarnation of Adolf Hitler – 2

Hitler proposed that the decree was temporary and would be lifted once order was restored; the decree was never lifted during the Nazi rule. Donald Trump proposed that the ban would be temporary and would be lifted once his administration could put measures in place. Fortunately, contrary to Germany however, the Judiciary Branch exercised its power over the Executive Branch and blocked the travel ban restriction. There is no way to know for sure whether Trump intended the travel ban to be temporary; however, both Hitler and Trump use the same approach.

On February 27, 1933 just a month as Chancellor, Hitler blamed a fire which destroyed the Reichstag Building on the Communists, sending millions of Germans into a panic. The Reichstag Building was the only remaining institution capable of preventing Hitler’s grab for dictatorial power. Hitler trumped-up the threat of communism, thus giving himself unfettered power over everyone. By August 1934, Hitler became commander-in-chief of the armed forces as well as President and Führer of the German Reich to whom every officer and individual in the armed forces pledged unconditional obedience.

Here in the United States, the Trump’s administration has been trumping-up the threat of terrorism, threat to national security in order to secure unquestionable power; Mr. Trump, Jeff Sessions the Attorney General and many others have made disparaging comments publicly against Judges. Mr. Trump even suggested at some point that the judges don’t have any right to oppose him. Fortunately, United States is not Germany; the Judiciary Branch has the power to intervene and rein in on a rogue President.  However, the danger is in the very fact that not only Donald Trump is completely oblivious of how the US government works but also his supporters – just like the Nazis – follow him blindly and would even perpetrate crimes on his behalf.
