> 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 DC. , Albany , New York, and Dakar , Senegal .
> He attended Harvard University , graduating there 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 . Kaiser's latest book, The Road to
> Dallas, about the Kennedy assassination, was just published by Harvard
> University Press.
> Dr. David Kaiser
> History Unfolding
> 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 thought this was a
> government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected
> leaders. Apparently not.
> We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our
> economy.. Why?
> We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no
> longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we
> are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically,
> read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing,
> school boards continue to back mediocrity.. Why?
> We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election
> (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that
> it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one
> woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have
> corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write
> laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist
> groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic.
> To what purpose?
> Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall,
> major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of
> collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire
> government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know
> precisely what I am talking about) - the list is staggering in its length,
> breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x ten...and we are at war
> with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same
> religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if
> they have the opportunity to do so.
> And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything
> about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as
> Wasilla , Alaska .. All of his associations and alliances are with real
> radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about
> him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have
> heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian
> defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of
> course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then
> demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are
> more important.)
> Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: CHANGE. Why?
> I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.
> This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never,
> ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us
> along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the
> pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And
> when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.
> And that is only the beginning..
> As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to
> experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s. In
> those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the
> streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they
> should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved,
> and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the
> political stage through great oratory. Conservative "losers" read it
> right now.
> And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing
> jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a
> lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his
> "brown shirts" would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did -
> regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled
> economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely
> he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by
> department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens
> were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they

> Jews of course,
> How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the
> jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial
> complex.. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control,
> health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill
> pride once again in the country, acrossEurope, and across the world. He did
> it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did this all in the
> name of justice and . . .CHANGE And the people surely got what they voted
> If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the history
> So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and
> were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston
> Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the
> House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into
> his seat and called a crazy troublemaker He was right, though. And the
> world came to regret that he was not listened to.
> Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured
> country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals,
> laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span
> than just two terms of the U. S.presidency) it was rounding up its own
> citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against
> parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of
> course. The road to Hell is paved with them.
> As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I
> have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell
> me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history
> is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I
> am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is
> transpiring around me..
> I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me,
> others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree,
> perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell
> them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it.
> I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our
> vote in the next elections.
