Two items of interest for you today:
A Dictatorship is form of
government in which one person or a small group possesses absolute power without
effective constitutional limitations.
When Hitler was appointed in January 1933, Germany was
a democracy. Germany had fair elections; nobody had their right to vote abused;
there were numerous political parties to choose from at voting time. To pass a
law, the Reichstag had to agree to it after a bill went through the normal
processes of discussion and debate.
Hitler had promised a general election for March 1933.
One week before the election was due to take place, the Reichstag building
burned down. Hitler knew that if he was to convince President Hindenburg
to give him emergency powers - as stated in the Weimar Constitution - he had to
play on the old president's fear of communism. What better than to convince him
that the communists were about to take over the nation by force?
Unsurprisingly, a convenient patsy, and known Communist
supporter - Marianus van der Lubbe - was caught near the Reichstag building
immediately after the fire started. Those that arrested him - Nazi officials -
claimed that Lubbe confessed that the fire was a signal to other communists to
start the revolution. Matches were allegedly found on van der Lubbe and those
who arrested him claimed that he smelt of petrol.
Hmmm, how convenient.
Hitler asked Hindenburg to grant him emergency powers
in view of the 'communist takeover'. Using the constitution, Hindenburg agreed
to pass the Law for the Protection of the People and the State. In the
months and years thereafter, Hitler steadily introduced law after law, which
gradually turned Germany into a Dictatorship.
Exactly the same process commenced on September 11,
2001 in the USA, and concluded with the inclusion of law HR6166 into the
American Constitution on the Sept 28, 2006.
A good friend, Peter from Australia, has provided the
following summary of HR6166:
- Revokes habeas corpus (click
for an explanation)
- Ends enforcement of the Geneva Conventions
- Legalizes torture
- Gives the President the power to imprison anyone,
without need for explanation, once the President declares the imprisoned
person to be an "enemy"
- Ends the right to a speedy trial, allowing
imprisonment without criminal charges for long periods of time - potentially
for a lifetime
- Sets up show trials that allow conviction to happen
before an investigation into the alleged criminal activity has even begun
- Allows the government to use secret evidence to
convict defendants, which not even the defendants' lawyers can see
- Legalizes the use of testimony that was obtained
through torture or other means of coercion - much as occurred at the Salem
Witch Trials to force people to testify that their neighbors were witches
- Keeps the processes of trials, the results of the
trials, and even the existence of the trials, secret from the American public
- Ends the enforcement of the 5th Amendment protection
- Allows defendants and their lawyers to be prevented
from cross examining witnesses, while placing no such restriction on the
- Gives anyone suspected of war crimes, including
President Bush himself, immunity from prosecution.

The Final ThreeWorldWars Newsletter
This will more than likely be my last newsletter.
You may have noticed the infrequent (and sometimes less than useful) updates
over the past 7 months. This has been a direct result of my father's
accident in Thailand, which has affected myself and my extended family severely.
Regrettably I've been forced to auction ThreeWorldWars to the highest bidder
- in an attempt to recover some of the medical bills we've been lumbered with.
This is not a decision taken lightly, as this site has been my passion for
almost 4 years - I've invested many hours researching and building it. Believe me it will be hard to give up, but sometimes life
throws a curved ball when you least expect it.
I already have a very keen buyer lined up, but I am delaying the sale because
I'm not convinced of their motives for wanting the site. Nor am I
convinced they will continue the search for truth. We'll see what happens
- an announcement will follow soon.
If you wish to see the current bid price, and possibly prevent the auction
from going ahead, see
That's all for this time, and quite possibly for all time, <$firstname$>.
