The Sea Lion that couldn’t swim

1 Comment

H/T Beyond The Band Of Brothers.

Operation Sea Lion was the Nazi Plan to invade England that they Nazi’s could not have been able to pull off.

The Sea Lion that couldn’t swim
After the fall of France, Hitler turned towards Britain. The defiant nation had to be brought to its knees so the invasion of the Soviet Union could commence without the threat of British attacks in Europe. Hitler would have preferred a British surrender to an actual fight, but had to be ready to follow up on his threats in the middle of the second half of 1940. The plans drawn up for the invasion became known as Unternehmen Seelöwe (Operation Sea Lion). A sea lion is a kind of seal, but the name probably also referred to the lions in the English coat of arms and to the very first version of the plan, called “Operation Lion,” which was described as a river crossing along a wide front.

Lacking a unified command for the various branches of the military (like SHAEF HQ for the Allies during the planning of Overlord), the Wehrmacht, the Kriegsmarine and the Luftwaffehad unrealistic expectations of one another. The Wehrmacht wanted the Luftwaffe to act as aerial artillery in support of the landings and the Kriegsmarine to conduct a landing on a wide front, dropping two entire Army Groups along the coast of Southeast England from Ramsgate to the Isle of Wight. Meanwhile, the Kriegsmarine assumed that the first wave of troops would be able to wait 8-10 days for heavy weaponry, supplies and reinforcements.  The army wanted to cover the beaches in artificial fog to provide cover; the navy didn’t, as it would have made landing maneuvers difficult. As a “compromise,” the army was given the authority to decide whether fog should be deployed but it was the navy’s job to do so, if it was practicable.

The Luftwaffe was to simultaneously keep the RAF away from the Channel, provide ground support to landing troops, bomb British warships threatening the invasion fleet, bomb railroads to stop British supplies and attack London to make the population flee and jam the roads. This multitasking job was based on the assumption that the RAF only had 200 planes available for combat against the Luftwaffe’s 750 bombers and 600 fighters. In actual fact, the RAF had 672 planes ready for combat in the area.
Testing a modified Panzer III. Such vehicles were waterproofed and were to be released into deep water so they could roll to shore on their own.
The Kriegsmarine was facing even worse odds. At the time, it had 1 capital ship, 1 cruiser, 10 destroyers and 20-30 submarines in the region, facing the Royal Navy’s local force of 5 capital ships, 10 cruisers and 53 destroyers and countless smaller craft that could wreak havoc on the transports. In order to protect the fleet, the Channel was to be closed by submarines in the west (maneuvering in shallow waters and somehow stopping all the fast-moving British warships that were going to approach) and minefields and 14 torpedo boats in the east (against at least 20 destroyers). The Luftwaffe’s help would have been dubious at best: even if they’d had enough planes, they lacked armor-piercing bombs, sufficient aerial torpedoes and had a terrible success rate against ships during the Dunkirk evacuation (which was an easier job, with stationary targets during the embarkation of troops).
Testing a raft intended for use in Sea Lion
An even greater problem was that the German navy didn’t have transports for the invaders. They scraped together 2,400 river barges from all across Europe for the purpose, two-thirds of which had no engines and had to be towed by tugs. These were bolstered by jerry-rigged rafts and pontoons, many of which had a tendency to sink in harbor. The barges were barely seaworthy, only usable in good weather; even then, they could be swamped and sunk by the wash of a destroyer passing by at high speed. Due to their speed of 2-3 knots, troops inside would have had to stay onboard for 30 hours before disembarking to fight.
River barges intended for use in the invasion
The huge but ridiculously fragile fleet was to approach Britain in columns, then wheel around to sail parallel to the coast. All barges were then to simultaneously turn towards the shore and make land in massive lines. This was to be done at night, coordinated by loud hailers. A single exercise was performed with 50 ships in daylight. One barged capsized while turning, another lost its tow and one overturned when the troops all rushed to one side because another vessel came too close. Half the ships failed to get their troops ashore within an hour of the first landing and several hit the shore sideways, unable to lower their ramps.
German troops rehearsing the invasion
Finally, there was the ground component. Infantry landing with nothing but their small arms and grenades were expected to capture defended port cities and establish beachheads. There were only enough life vests for a single wave of attackers at the time, so soldiers were expected to land, remove their combat packs (which were worn over the vests), take off the vests and don their packs again, all the while under enemy fire. And even if they’d done so, the landing barges were instructed to return home immediately, so they wouldn’t have waited for the equipment.

Similarly, there were no provisions for taking supplies from the beaches to the front further inland, leaving the task to whoever happened to be there. High-ranking members of the command staff were supposed to stay on the continent during the early stages of the invasion, leaving all the decision-making to junior commanders. On the bright side, the first wave was to bring along 4,000 horses – despite not having any heavy equipment to haul.

The sweeping consensus of historians is that Sea Lion never had a chance to succeed and the notion was reinforced by a 1974 British military wargame conducted at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. In fact, the same sentiment was shared by a good number of its actual planners. Luftwaffe Commander-in-Chief Hermann Göring, Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt and Grand Admirals Karl Dönitz and Erich Raeder all believed that the invasion had no chance to succeed. We’ll never for sure but it’s possible that Hitler only intended it as a bluff from the beginning to cow Churchill into peace talks. What is known is that in September 1940, three months after the Battle of Britain began to suppress the RAF and prepare the way for Operation Sea Lion, Hitler postponed the invasion indefinitely.

Pope Francis Says You’re NOT Christian if You Support Gun Manufactures

2 Comments

This is from AmmoLand.

If guns are so bad, why does the Pope have armed guards?

Pope Frnacis complained about the Allies during World War II allowing Christians and Jews to be murdered yet the Vatican helped Nazi’s escape Germany.

Italy – -(Ammoland.com)- Pope Francis spoke with a group of young people at a rally of thousands at the end of the first day of his trip to the Italian city of Turin.

Francis started by attacking the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as well as accusing the allies during World War Two of being complicit in the killing of Jews, Christians and homosexuals.

Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of the weapons industry, saying.

“If you trust only men you have lost,” he told the young people in a long, rambling talk about war, trust and politics after putting aside his prepared address.

“It makes me think of … people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit a distrust, doesn’t it?” he said to applause.

He also criticized those who invest in weapons industries (gun owners), saying “duplicity is the currency of today … they say one thing and do another.”

Francis also built on comments he has made in the past about events during the first and second world wars.

He spoke of the “tragedy of the Shoah,” using the Hebrew term for the Holocaust.

“The great powers had the pictures of the railway lines that brought the trains to the concentration camps like Auschwitz to kill Jews, Christians, homosexuals, everybody. Why didn’t they bomb (the railway lines)?”

It is surely an upside down world when the representative of G* on earth disparages the right to self defense and accuses the Greatest Generation of being complicit in Hitler’s genocide and the destruction of Europe and Russia.

The 10 Countries with the Most Guns in Private Hands

1 Comment

This is from OutDoorHub.

I was surprised by some of the countries on the list.

outdoorhub-10-countries-guns-private-hands-2015-08-26_12-42-55-773x600

Somebody should probably tell this man about trigger discipline. Image from Yann on the Wikimedia Commons

Every wonder which countries have the most firepower in private hands? This article lists off those nations. Unlike most lists that cover this subject, ours will be based on total amount of privately-owned firearms rather than guns per capita.

Data is taken from Small Arms Survey.

Honorable mentions that didn’t make the top 10 include Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Serbia, and Finland.

10. Canada

  • Estimated private firearms: 9,950,000
  • 31 guns per 100 residents

We expected Canada to be a lot higher on this list but the True North barely squeezed by into the top 10. Canada does have a long and rich history of gun ownership, and experts say that more and more young people are getting involved in shooting sports. However, a lengthy and complicated process to purchase firearms dissuades many from buying their own.

Check out our list of guns that are available in Canada but not the United States here.

9. Thailand

  • Estimated private firearms: 10,000,000
  • 16 guns per 100 residents

On a single road in Bangkok, over 80 gun shops fight and jostle for customers to enter their shops or check their stalls. This is indicative of the reverent gun culture in Thailand—one that is a match for the United States. Actually purchasing a firearm is still a long and demanding process, but that does not stop residents from being armed. Firearms are much more expensive in Thailand than in the States, and the same brand-name guns that are widely available elsewhere can cost up to five times higher in the Asian nation. This is due to the fact that there are few gun manufacturers in Thailand and most weapons are imported. Most of the guns there are American or Chinese-made.

“Consumers for firearms in Thailand are mostly middle to upper class,” Firearms Association of Thailand’s Polpatr Tanomsup told CNN. “They want better quality, because if they imported China-made guns, it would not be much cheaper than American-made firearms, and the quality for American is much higher. It is collectible, easy to sell, easy to buy, easy to get parts.”

8. Yemen

  • Estimated private firearms: 11,500,000
  • 55 guns per 100 residents

If there is a country that can outmatch the United States in gun ownership, it might be Yemen. It is nearly mandatory for residents to own at least one firearm, and almost wherever you go, you will find guns up for grab. Uncertain about their future, the people of Yemen rely on their trusty firearms for protection.

“In Yemen, no matter if you’re rich or poor, you must have guns. Even if it’s just one piece,” Abdul Wahab al-Ammari, a tribal sheikh from Yemen’s Ibb province, told The Atlantic. “I have maybe 14 high powered weapons, and 3 handguns [at home].”

7. Brazil

  • Estimated private firearms: 14,840,000
  • 8 guns per 100 residents

Unlike Yemen, one of the world’s poorest nations, Brazil is a rising star on the global stage. Like most of the nations on this list, gun ownership is not a legal right in Brazil. Residents have to be at least 25 years old to apply for a ownership permit, which must be renewed every three years, and actual carry permits are hard to obtain. Despite these hurdles, gun ownership remains popular in Brazil and being home to notable manufacturers like Taurus makes the country the second-largest gun-producing nation in the Western Hemisphere.

6. Mexico

  • Estimated private firearms: 15,500,000
  • 15 guns per 100 residents

Previously, Mexico’s constitution guaranteed the right to bear arms. The current version limits that right to only keeping arms, and in practice, gun ownership is heavily restricted. In some of Mexico’s more dangerous areas, security forces are spread thin and residents are called upon to defend themselves with their own firearms.

5. Pakistan

  • Estimated private firearms: 18,000,000
  • 12 guns per 100 residents

Home of the notorious Khyber Pass and its gun “industry,” it comes as no surprise that Pakistan made it onto this list. Amateur and experienced gunsmiths alike work in the Khyber Pass region, producing unlicensed and, in many cases, homemade-quality firearms from materials like railway rails and scrap metal.

4. Germany

  • Estimated private firearms: 25,000,000
  • 30 guns per 100 residents

Whether it’s for hunting wild boar or sport shooting, guns are very popular in Germany. Commonplace though they might be, Germany has severe restrictions on what kind of guns one can buy, and applicants for gun ownership must prove a need before being issued a permit. Self-defense isn’t necessarily an accepted reason. Nonetheless, German gun owners say that such regulations are expected.

“On the one hand, we think, ‘Oh, it’s very restrictive, and we don’t like that,’” sport shooter Friedrich Gepperth told NPR. “On the other hand, each case of misuse by a legal gun owner is very bad for us, so we are not going against the restrictions very much.”

3. China

  • Estimated private firearms: 40,000,000
  • 5 guns per 100 residents

Surprised to see this country on the list? Despite having some of the strictest gun laws in the world—a blanket ban on private firearm ownership—gun culture seems to be taking hold. How is this possible? With a multitude of shooting and hunting clubs, guns are once again finding their place back into Chinese hands. According to some, it’s hard not to romanticize firearms due to their popularity in film and television.

“In the 1960s, shooting was for national defense,” Xie Xianqiao, a former shooting coach, told The Wall Street Journal. “These days, shooting is entertainment.”

That said, private ownership without the proper permits can still lead to a hefty fine and lengthy prison sentence. Crimes committed with a firearm often receive the death penalty.

2. India

  • Estimated private firearms: 45,000,000
  • 5 guns per 100 residents

Guns in the world’s most populous democracy are both protection and a status symbol. Proper firearms are expensive—enough to be included in dowries—and a single 1911 pistol can sell for several times its asking US price. Domestically-produced guns are available, but lack the reliability and style of foreign-made firearms. Concern over sexual attacks have also led to guns becoming more popular among women—as well as fathers.

Bank manager Jagdeep Singh says he keeps a pistol on his hip to fight off bandits during long car rides, but it also gives him safety of mind when he’s home.

“I have two good-looking daughters,” he told The Los Angeles Times, “another reason I keep a gun.”

1. United States of America

  • Estimated private firearms: 270,000,000
  • 89 guns per 100 residents

Was there ever really any doubt that we’d be number one on this list? The United States of America is by far the best country in the world to be in if you want to own guns. The constitutional right to keep and bear arms (where it isn’t infringed upon by local law), combined with large popular support for gun ownership and easy availability, make the United States a gun collector’s dream.

93 year old World War Two veteran dies

John McFarland's 1943 presentation of Air Observers (Navigators) Wings

John McFarland’s 1943 presentation of Air Observers (Navigators) Wings

A 93 year old World War Two veteran Royal Air Force officer has died.

John McFarland was originally born in Ireland in 1922, but enlisted with the Royal Air Force in 1941 in the early years of the war.

John was sent to Scotland and joined an air and sea rescue unit, after which he volunteered to join the RAF’s revered Bomber Command. So he was sent into training as an aircraft navigator and was sent to Canada to train. When he returned, John was placed into RAF 75 Squadron which was mainly made up of New Zealand servicemen.

Later on in the war, John took part in a dangerous mission where they were tasked with placing sea mines in the area around Kiel, a coastal port town in the north of Germany. When John and his squadron were returning from the mission his plane was shot down over Denmark.

The aircraft was completely destroyed, three of the crew died in the plane crash, while John and one other managed to parachute out. However John was the only survivor as the other crewman’s parachute failed.

John ended up landing in enemy-occupied territory in the middle of the night. John’s son David says that his father was hiding out and on the run from enemy troops for three or four days. Eventually a local farmer took John in, fed him and gave him a place to stay. He later moved in to a local teacher’s house where he stayed in hiding, the News Letter reports.

Unfortunately Nazi troops found John. The teacher he was staying with was sent to a concentration camp, where he eventually died. John was captured as a prisoner of war and was sent to Stalag Luft III, a notorious camp for prisoners of war and the location of the ‘Great Escape’ which had taken place not long before John arrived at the camp.

As the Allies advanced across Europe and into Germany from the west, and the Soviet Red Army was closing in from the east, the Germans evacuated Stalag Luft III at the beginning of 1945. The Nazis forced thousands of prisoners to march across Germany in order to get away from the incoming Allies. The march became known as the Long March in which thousands of prisoners marched hundreds of kilometres across Germany, with many dying from the freezing conditions.

John survived and was liberated from a camp in Hamburg by the Allied forces. After the war, John returned to Ireland and finished training as a chemist. He set up a shop in Belfast and worked there until he retired in the 1980s.

Argentine archaeologists find secret Nazi lair in jungle

How many Nazi’s ended up in other countries, including America?

Stone structures in the remote region of Misiones are thought to be the ruins of a hideout build by Nazis, in case their leaders needed to flee Germany

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/southamerica/argentina/article11488776.ece#ooid=RlZzE1dDqcwVLm9hDy9cDmDCHqQKlkWD

A team of Argentine archaeologists investigating a series of ruins in the jungle, close to the border with Paraguay, believe they have discovered a secret Nazi lair.

The cluster of stone structures, now covered by thick vines and accessible only when using a machete to cut through the undergrowth, contain stashes of German coins from the late 1930s, fragments of “Made in Germany” porcelain, and Nazi symbols on the walls.

“We can find no other explanation as to why anyone would build these structures, at such great effort and expense, in a site which at that time was totally inaccessible, away from the local community, with material which is not typical of the regional architecture,” said Daniel Schavelzon, leader of the team.

Mr Schavelzon, from the University of Buenos Aires, spent months exploring the site in the Teyu Cuare provincial park, in the Misiones region of northern Argentina. Local legend told that a house in the forest belonged to Martin Bormann – Hitler’s right-hand-man, who took his own life in May 1945 – but Mr Schavelzon said there was no evidence to support what he called “an urban myth”.

Instead, the buildings were planned as a refuge for the leaders of the Third Reich, commissioned in case they needed to flee Germany.

“Apparently, halfway through the Second World War, the Nazis had a secret project of building shelters for top leaders in the event of defeat – inaccessible sites, in the middle of deserts, in the mountains, on a cliff or in the middle of the jungle like this,” Mr Schavelzon told Argentine newspaper Clarin. He said that his findings were not yet definite, but he was convinced of their veracity.

“This site also has the bonus of allowing the inhabitants to be in Paraguay in less than 10 minutes. It’s a protected, defendable site where they could live quietly.”

Ultimately, though, the hideout wasn’t needed, because after the fall of the Nazi regime their leaders were welcomed to Argentina and allowed to live openly.

Thousands of Nazis, Croatian Ustasha fascists and Italian fascists arrived with the blessing of president Juan Peron, who led the nation from 1946 to 1955 and again briefly in the 1970s. An estimated 5,000 Nazis eventually ended up in Argentina.

In 1960, Nazi Adolf Eichmann, who helped organise the Holocaust, was captured in Buenos Aires by an Israeli commando team and tried in Israel where he was executed. Josef Mengele, whose grotesque experiments on prisoners at Auschwitz earned him the title “Angel of Death”, also fled to Argentina.

“When the war was over some useful Germans helped us build our factories and make the best use of what we had,” said Peron, who died in 1974. “And in time they were able to help themselves too.”

 

STOP PRESS: Barn finds for sale, license built Messerschmitt Me-109G

Leave a comment

This is from War History Online.

What an amazing find.even I am not a pilot I would love to own one of the Me-109G.

 

History:  In 1942 the Spanish government arranged a manufacturing licence with Messerschmitt AG to build the Bf 109G-2, with DB605A engines, propellers, instruments, and weapons to be supplied from Germany. This proved impossible, as Germany was incapable of meeting her own needs, let alone Spain’s. Only twenty-five airframes (minus their tails) and not even half the necessary drawings were delivered.

Post World War II, production resumed on the Buchón’s and the final variant was the HA-1112-M1L Buchón. It first flew 29 March 1954. The 1112-M1L was equipped with the 1,600 hp Rolls-Royce Merlin 500-45 engine and Rotol propeller, both purchased as surplus from the UK. This engine had a chin intake, that altered the lines of the Bf 109′s airframe visually. Its armament consisted of two 20 mm Hispano-Suiza 404/408 cannons and two Oerlikon or Pilatus eight-packs of 80 mm rockets. It remained in service until 27 December 1965.

The HA-1112-M1L’s remained in flying condition until the mid-1960s. This made them available for theatrical use, masquerading as Bf 109′s in movies like The Battle of Britain. $800,000 – $1,100,000 and for sale here platinumfighters.com.

These examples are HIspano Aviacion HA-1112 M1L’s.

NYS goes full on Nazi; SAFE act to encourage people to inform on neighbors if they have too many bullets

I am sure Hitler and Himmler are celebrating in their

corner of Hell.

I have no doubt Stalin and Chairman Mao are celebrating.

One more reason to avoid the state of New York. 

NaziGoose-StepTroops

Fuhrer Cuomo has goosestepped his way even further down the path that leads to a freedom-less tyrannical autocracy.

Apparently Cuomo fashions himself as a modern day Hitler.

Yeah…how’s that for some bombastic opening sentences.

Calling someone Hitler or a Nazi has long been a pastime of liberals who find themselves unable to cognitively refute a person with a different ideology.

They toss it around so much that it has become cliche.  I’m not doing that.  Rather, I am pointing out how the methods of the Third Reich are being implemented as we speak in the Empire State under the watch of one Andrew Cuomo.

Changing the rules in order to ram the SAFE Act down the throats of New Yorkers before they had time to voice dissent is one thing.

Enacting a program where, in order to enforce the SAFE Act, you are encouraging neighbors to inform on neighbors anonymously is something that hearkens back to the dark time of Germany.

We all have this idea that the Gestapo, Germany’s secret police, were everywhere and that it was they who ferreted out the Jews and Gays and dissenters.  Yet research done by History Prof. Robert Gellately at FSU , whose expertise deals with the Holocaust and Nazi Germany sheds new light on the myth that the secret police was as omnipresent as the movies would make out.

“There were relatively few secret police, and most were just processing the information coming in. I had found a shocking fact. It wasn’t the secret police who were doing this wide-scale surveillance and hiding on every street corner. It was the ordinary German people who were informing on their neighbors.

And despite the myth that the informers were driven either by a love of the Third Reich or fear from authority, Gellately finds a more base motivation behind the actions of those who named names:

But the motives found were banal—greed, jealousy, and petty differences.

Adolf Hitler Wanted you to spy on your neighbors for money

Cases of partners in business turning in associates to gain full ownership; jealous boyfriends informing on rival suitors; neighbors betraying entire families who chronically left shared bathrooms unclean or who occupied desirable apartments.

And then there were those who informed because for the first time in their lives someone in authority would listen to them and value what they said.

What of people saying they didn’t realize what would happen to those they turned in, that they didn’t think the government would act the way they did?  Gellately states:

“If somebody tells you that they lived in Germany during the Holocaust and didn’t know about concentration camps, they are self-delusional, at best.”

Gellately compiled his findings and wrote a book: Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, 1933-1944

One of the most frightening ways that the Nazi’s were allowed to do this can be seen in the way gun controllers operate today.  Gellately paints a picture in which it is easy to see the similarities:

“They began with small violations of the rights of Jews and other minorities, and then ratcheted up their racism and persecution only when they saw implied consent from the German people.”

So too are these so-called “common sense” gun laws and small infringements just a stepping stone.  If we allow them to take root, the gun controllers will view that as implied consent and will continue to push for more and farther reaching infringements, not only on the 2nd Amendment but on the others as well, such as the ongoing attack on the Fourth Amendment which is also affected by New York’s new, “rat your neighbor out” policy.

Think about it.  You’re neighbor anonymously calls the authority and tells them you have 8 bullets in your magazine instead of 7 (yeah…that’s a crime in NY), what will be the response?

Will the police show up, knock on your door and ask nicely whether it is true?  Or will their response more likely include a no-knock warrant in the middle of the night that will surely cost your family dog its life if not your own?

Not only is this reminiscent of Nazi Germany but even closer to home it’s like the witch hunts of Salem where the accusation is enough to find you pressed to death or burned, drowned or hung.

Andrew Cuomo wants you to spy on your neighbors for money

So, we have Cuomo encouraging people to spy on and turn in their neighbors for a $500 bounty with no safeguards for the accused, nor any punishment for the accuser should their accusation be without merit.  This situation is so vulnerable to abuse it’s pathetic.  How long before a dispute between neighbors over a property line, or dog crap, or a trees branch ends up with dueling no-knock warrants and tossed houses and shot dogs?

So yeah…I don’t call Cuomo’s regime Nazi-like because I don’t have an artfully intelligent counter to his policies;  I call it Nazi-like because I do.  If it walks like a goose, talks like a goose and encourages neighbors to rat out neighbors like a goose, chances are its a freedom hating goosestepper.

ADOLPH HITLER: The Real Father of Universal Health Care

1 Comment

This is from Clash Daily.

Obamacare closely mirrors some of Hitler’s health care plans.

Obama with his own words supports death panels.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 9.11.40 AM

Otto von Bismarck, the Chancellor of Germany and a dictator in his own right, started socialized healthcare in 1883 with the Reichsversicherungsverordnung or Reich Insurance Act. However, only certain segments of the society were insured at that time. It was Adolf Hitler, who actually imposed socialized healthcare on the entire German population, as a part of nazification of the healthcare industry, and for that reason he should rightly be called the *real* father of universal healthcare. This collective universal healthcare concept was called “racial hygiene.” This is history that people have largely forgotten, because it is inconvenient for many to remember it.

Hitler also literally rolled out, via panzer, his now universal healthcare to occupied France, Belgium and the Netherlands — those countries with mainly “Aryan” populations. Hitler put universal healthcare in place in those very countries that he wished to aryanize and perfect by eliminating physical/mental defects in the populations via sterilization and medical killing.

The point is that universal healthcare gives any Government enormous power that can be misused, if the wrong people are in control, not that it is adminstered the same now as in Nazi Germany. This is too much power to centralize in the hands of the Government, because governments sometimes go bad.

The first mass murders of the Holocaust were carried out in the socialized German hospitals and the techniques for mass murder were developed there. Several hundred thousand handicapped and mentally ill persons were murdered in Hitler’s universal healthcare system. Retarded and mentally ill children were euthanized and the T4 project did the same for handicapped, mentally ill and elderly adults. In his orders permitting medical killing, Hitler called them “mercy killing” and “lives not worth living.” In this way Germany produced great savings in healthcare, not only due to the extermination of existing patients, but many ill persons (and their families) became afraid to even check into the hospitals.

Robert Jay Lifton, author of “The Nazi Doctors, points out that the extermination of the Jews and others of different ethnic groups was itself seen as a medical solution, a medical procedure for the collective healing of the Aryan race by elimination of the Jewish infection of Aryan blood. So, the entire Holocaust can be seen as an extension of Hitlercare. From that point of view, it is estimated that about 10 million people were murdered under Hitlercare, including six millions Jews. The Nazi plan was ultimately to exterminate about 25 million Jews and Slavs in Eastern Europe in fulfillment of the so-called “racial hygiene” principle of the the German universal healthcare system.

Because resources are limited, the concept of Universal Healthcare requires the Government to make decisions on the distribution of healthcare that will determine the survivability of different groups in society. That is, the welfare of the collective and government priorities are placed above that of the rights of any individual.

Once you have given the Government that much power, there is no natural barrier between you and the Holocaust of the Nazis. It is only a matter of degree, of how far they want to take this concept that social welfare trumps individual rights.

This is the inherent evil of universal healthcare. It gives Government the right to decide life and death for entire classes of society, as opposed to individuals contracting for their own healthcare. This is why Hitler liked universal healthcare so much that he imposed it on conquered countries, not because he was so concerned for the well being of the subjected peoples, but because it gave him the right over entire classes of people to decide, who lives and who dies. It gave him the power to engineer the composition of society to his own malicious requirements. Entire classes of people can be killed — or, allowed to die — with no judicial process being necessary. (This is death panels on steroids.)

This is also the reason that Obama and others in the Government want universal healthcare so desperately. The socialist elite need to be able to ignore the rights of the individual to engineer their new utopian society. For that purpose, the same kind of centrally-controlled healthcare system that Hitler used is required.

My Personal Musings

1 Comment

What I am going to say will tick off some people. These are just my thoughs on this subject. If my words offend you, you were warned.

I was watching a story about Adolph Hitler. He came from no where and quickly charmed the people and was elected Chancellor.

Hitler’s claim to fame at the time he was a corporal in the German Army during World War One. He gave mesmerizing speeches that caused the German peopleto follow him blindly shouting, ” Seig Heil, Seig Heil!”

My mind flashed to Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama came from no where and got elected president. His claim to fame is he was a Senate back-bencher in the Illinois legislature as well as a very short U.S.Senate term.

Obama gives mesmerizing speeches that caused the low-information voters to follow Obama blindly chanting, “Yes We Can! Yes We Can!”

Obama voted present in the Illinois Senate and his only non present was in favor of infanticide.

Hitler encouraged people to inform on their friends and family. He also encouraged children to inform on their parents. He used the Gestapo and the S.S.to terrorize and destroy his enemies, both personal and political.

Now flash forward to the present and examine Obama.

Obama use the I.R.S. and the D.O.J. to terrorize his enemies; real as well as imaginary, to try to destroy them.

Hitler used the Jewish people as scape goats and blamed them for the problems facing Germany.

Obama uses Conservatives,  the Tea Party, Republicans and the rich to blame for his failures.

–Hitler implemented gun control and universal health care.

–Hitler used death camps to murder the mentally ill,the handicapped as well as the undesirables, aka the Jewish people. LAs result over six million people were murdered.

Obama supports infanticide and the murders of unborn babies.

Only time will tell how many people will die as result of Obamacare.
