The Reichstag Fire, 9/11, and Anthrax

What was the Reichstag Fire?

The Reichstag fire is an extremely pivotal event in the establishment of Nazi Germany. It began on the night of February 27, 1933, when a Berlin fire station received an alarm that the Reichstag ("Parliament") building was ablaze. The fire seemed to have been started in several places, and by the time the police and firemen arrived a huge explosion had set nearly the entire building on fire. Looking for clues, the police quickly found Marinus van der Lubbe, half-naked, cowering behind the building. Van der Lubbe was a mentally ill former Dutch Communist and unemployed bricklayer who had been floating around Europe for the last two years prior to 1933.

Adolf Hitler and Hermann Göring arrived soon after, and when they were shown Van der Lubbe, a known Communist agitator, Göring immediately declared the fire was set by the Communists and had the party leaders arrested. Hitler took advantage of the situation to declare a state of emergency and encouraged aging president Paul von Hindenburg to sign the Reichstag Fire Decree, abolishing most of the human rights provisions of the 1919 Weimar Republic constitution.

Prior to the fire, and during the election campaign in which Hitler eventually won, the Nazis had run on a platform of hysterical anti-communism, insisting that Germany was on the verge of a Communist revolution, and that the only way to stop the revolution was to pass the Enabling Act. The Enabling Act was a special power allowed by the Weimar Constitution to give the Chancellor (in this case, Hitler) the power to pass laws by decree, without the involvement of the Reichstag. The Enabling Act was only supposed to be used in times of extreme emergency. In fact, Hitler's platform during the campaign comprised little more than demands that voters increase the Nazi share of seats so that the Enabling Act could be passed.

The Reichstag Fire allowed Hitler to accelerate the banning of the Communist Party and was used to confirm Nazi claims of a pending Communist revolution. The Nazis argued the Reichstag fire was meant to serve as a signal to launch the revolution, and warned the German public about the grisly fate they would suffer under Communist rule. Eventually, the Nazis got their wish. They managed to pass the Enabling Act-- essentially turning Adolph Hitler into the Supreme Ruler of Germany. Eventually, Hitler managed to "parlay" this supremacy into the genocide known as the Holocaust.

Years later, after the fall of the Third Reich, at the Nuremberg trials, General Franz Halder claimed Göring had confessed to setting the fire:
"At a luncheon on the birthday of Hitler in 1942, the conversation turned to the topic of the Reichstag building [fire] and its artistic value. I heard with my own ears when Göring interrupted the conversation and shouted: 'The only one who really knows about the Reichstag is I, because I set it on fire!' With that he slapped his thigh with the flat of his hand."
What was 9/11?
9/11 was an extremely pivotal event in the establishment of a Neoconservative America. It started one morning when four (4) planes were hijacked..... And from all accounts, it was an open and shut case. Although there was no 'half-naked person cowering behind the wreckage,' like the Reichstag's Van der Lubbe, there was, within a few days following the hijackings, amazingly detailed dossiers on each of the hijackers. Luckily, each of the hijackers left copies of the Koran, box cutters, and aircraft piloting manuals in the trunk of their rental cars parked at the airport. But even more amazing, on September 12, Senator Orrin Hatch said "the US was monitoring bin Laden supporters and overheard them discussing the attack." [AP, 9/12/01] (Somehow, this little tidbit has always been lost in the shuffle. I wonder 'why'?).

Prior to taking control of Washington, the Neocons were already planning on invading Iraq. But there was no public support for such a campaign prior to 9/11. Moreover, prior to 9/11, on three occasions, President George W. Bush publicized his envy of dictatorships:

"You don't get everything you want. A dictatorship would be a lot easier." - Bush describing life as the governor of Texas. (Governing Magazine 7/98)

"If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator," Bush joked. (CNN 12/18/00)

"A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it," [Bush] said. (Business Week 7/30/01)
On October 2, 2001, The Patriot Act is introduced in Congress. The next day, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D) accuses the Bush administration of reneging on an agreement on this anti-terrorist bill. [Washington Post, 10/4/01] Anthrax letters are sent to Leahy and Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D) on October 9. [CNN, 11/18/01]

For the next few weeks, the country is freaked out (and rightfully so!) by a series of anthrax letters that reach not just the two Democratic Senators, but also various media companies who have been previously labeled as "liberal" by the right wing. During this scare, it is speculated that the letters are being sent from al-Qaeda or perhaps Iraq. During this scare, the Anthrax story is front page news, discussed almost 24 hours a day on the various news channels.

After an FBI investigation, it turns out that the Anthrax letters contain an anthrax strain which originates from a US Army base and that the likely source of the letter is a US government insider. But for some strange reason, this AMAZING FACT is hardly covered by the major media outlets. And after the revelation, the story becomes hardly discussed eventhough, to this day, the anthrax case has not been solved. (or has it?)

Nevertheless, 9/11 and the anthrax scare are used by the Neocons and President Bush to take the country to war against Iraq. It turns out that Iraq had absolutely no connection to the 9/11 attacks nor the anthrax attacks.

This seemingly neverending White House-sponsored orgy of 9/11 rhetoric, recrimination and revenge is treacherously similar to the Nazi orgy. (of course, it is not identical, but the similarities are certainly worthy of recognition.) Few Americans believe the Bush Administration had a part in bringing down the World Trade Center (whether directly or via gross negligence) in 2001. But the conviction is widespread throughout Europe and the Muslim world, and perhaps for good reason.

Similar to Germany's Hitler, Bush also came to power with a minority of votes (remember, he didn't even win the popular vote in 2000) and has since exploited the terrible tragedies of September 11 in much the same way the Nazis exploited the Reichstag fire. Bush has used American fear and anger, which has resulted from the tragedies of 9/11 and anthrax, to push an extreme rightist (Neocon) agenda aimed at devouring civil liberties, muting dissent, fattening a war machine (see Halliburton and Bechtel), and arrogating the right to unilaterally attack other countries without tangible and/or legal provocation.

Concurrently, with all of this, the Neocons have shamelessly mounted assaults against the natural environment, social security, human rights, organized labor, and a wide range of international treaties, including the Geneva Convention. Combining fear with elements of patriotism and religion, the Bush regime has strong-armed its way into an overtly militaristic and imperialistic policy aimed at taking over the world's greatest oil assets, including the Iraqi oil fields and the Afghanistan pipeline.

Ironically, the conservatives profess themselves to be staunch opponents of Big Government. Yet so-called "Patriotic conservatives" and Neocons have trashed virtually every guarantee of individual freedom on which American greatness has been built. Under the guise of fighting terrorism and national security, the administration has become the ultimate anti-Constitutional terrorist-- going so far as detaining hundreds of people for years without charges ever being brought against them, without trials, hearings, or the right to counsel. And even more disgusting, these so-called patriots support the use of torture-- ultimate acts of barbarism and terrorism.

I think the main problem with the argument is really that the nazis had indeed burned down the reichstag. Everybody knows that 9-11 could not have been set up by the wingnuts and that makes a world of difference. It is indeed true however that extremism on both sides fed each other: communist-nazis and bush/neocons-islam fanatics, I mean the nazis were not popular initially for no reason. They did not rise out of a vacuum. There is still the sense, though, that in a democracy like the US, even something as sensitive or secret as 9-11 conspiracy would have been outed long ago since there are a lot of people of good will on both sides of the political spectrum. There is however, the sense, from the outside, that the check and balances are slowly but surely desintegrating.

Orikinla, some of us know why we went to war, however, some don't because they continue to believe the trash that the Administration emits everyday.

What I see the article as is this: The Reichstag fire and 9/11, gave the leaders at the time to squash the opposition and pass legislation reducing civil liberties....Then it all goes downhill from there.

Thank you for your country's support.

One more thing, you said we (Americans) don't know why we went to war, which war? And why is your country helping us if Americans are ignorant?

anonymous,

I beg to differ. Everybody does not "know" that 9/11 could not have been set up by the, as you call them, "wingnuts".

I suggest you read further into the matter. I am certainly not alone. Not even close.

And lastly, for the record, I am not trying to insinuate that the Neocons are Nazis. Thats just idiotic. I am simply showing the similarities between the Nazi power grab and the Neocon power grab.

Actually, even as it relates to the Reichstag fire, it is not completely certain that Goring and Hitler set it themselves. At Goring's trial, he denied having set it. (Plausible denial worked back then too)

Where would Bush's agenda be without 9/11? Prior to 9/11, he was getting nowhere in the White House. After 9/11, he was basically given carte blanche.

I cannot tell you for sure what happened, but I can interpret the facts as I see them. You may differ with me, thats fine. Thanks for the post.

very interesting blog,
intelligent without being excessive.
as a european i'm glad to read that not all americans are the same, but if 49% are by vote against the bush administration,
have senators and congresmen in opposition, and there was one doupt (there is much more than that)about the responsability of the bush adm. behind the 9/11 or all other cia involvements in foreign activities, that it is not possible to have an official investigation about it. If clinton was to be fired because of his involvement with another lady than his wife, how come such an important issue as human lifes is not investigated. If the party involved says to your congress that it is better not to investigate, the more there is to do so.

http://www.prisonplanet.com
http://www.infowars.com

if only three thing i found on these sites was true how come the american people (at least 49%) should go on the streets ank ask for clearence.

what is (political)opposition in the us?

as long as sober europeans (remenber europe is a continent with different and indepentent states and peolple) read what peolple like ottman say and how, the amaricans are seen as ignorant stupid nono's
unfortunately people like him have the laudest mouths and that's what we hear over here.
like moderate muslims should make clear and speak out loud that islam has in fact nothing to do with violence and terrorism,
democrats should make clear that they have not that expansionist urge to rule the world, and make more publicity about their coals and sollutions to the worlds problems.

what we don't understand how a president makes such a hypocritical fuzz about mrs. schiavo and http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/10/opinion/10Kristof.html?pagewanted=print

to make them only suffer more in order to safe theirs lives, he bush, being a good christian, and still sending thousants of young people to kill and be killed for his oil.

probabily my english is not that good to make myselve understood, but can you understand that so many contradictions would never be accepted by many european voters and would have their governments investigated, and in the us the government sais "let's not investigate too deep" no bells ringing

Great post, definite food for thought without the spattering of conspiracy theory crap that's in a lot of blogs. I agree that history can be a valuable tool and can help the world not repeat the sins of the past.

This is a new low in leftist propaganda.

Hey bulldog, that was a great post.. I've studied a lot of Nazi propaganda in my time. I definitely see the similarities!! Are you kidding? Bush isn't far short of wearing a brown shirt and arm band.

Brian, that was a new low in unoriginal thought.

peace by equity, you're assuming something when you say that 49% voted against Bush. I think it was higher.. but maybe we'll never know.

I'm a different anon than the first one, btw.

Great Post, you are correct!!

Bush and Co. were in on it and it was all part of their plan!!

read 9/11: An Inside Job by Jim Marrs, if you are leaving negative feedback to this post!!

Thanks, again!!

tracyv

Heady stuff. Food for thought. I'm not usually into conspiracy theories, but too many things don't add up. "Curiouser and curiouser" as Lewis Carroll put it.

When Hunter Thompson died last February, there was an internet rumor (it didn't last long) that he didn't really commit suicide. He was working on a story about 9/11 being an inside job, and he got "suicided" because he was getting too close to the truth. Again, just a rumor.

Tom,

This isn't a conspiracy theory anymore than the story we have been fed is a conspiracy theory. The facts are certainly open to varying interpretations. As humans, we have a tendency to find a quick and digestable explanation. And I believe, after 9/11, we wanted a quick and digestable explanation for than ever. Back then, who dared question the facts as they unfolded. We were terrorized.

And when we see the Bush people resist and 9/11 commission, it must make us ask "why"? When they do everything possible to stifle and smear critics, we must ask "why"?

Asking questions is good for a democracy. Of course, they would have us believe otherwise. Why?

Cannot agree more on this.

Weither Hitler and Goering set the Reichstag fire or took advantage of it has been debated among many historians. I imagine the same will be done with 9/11. Personally, I'm sure that a total lack of effort was taken on the Bush administration's part to prevent 9/11. Why? Were they just stupid? Did they really not feel that the reports and warnings from experts were really that important? Or did they see a possible advantage to doing nothing? I doubt we'll ever know.

Nice blog, Bulldog! I think our politicians will continue to take advantage of 9-11 for their own purposes, whether or not it was a planned thing. I doubt we will ever know for sure, but I like to think it didn't have anything to do with anybody's political designs.

However, I find the constant use of 9-11 shameless, particularly by the GOP, to inspire fear in the populace.

Your best blog entry yet.

While I cannot believe that the President, the CIA, or the devil himself (Rove) had anything to do with the Sept 11 attacks, it is undeniable that they took full advantage of the tragedy to implement some of their more nefarious policies.

Excellent work and I'm going to link it to my blog!

Bravo! There is enough in the "collapse" of Building 7 alone to strongly suggest the possiblity of a conspiracy. We deserve a full scientific investigation of the collapse of that building, the collapse of the Twin Towers, and why NORAD stood down that morning. May God bless your efforts to bring out the truth.

"While I cannot believe that the President, the CIA, or the devil himself (Rove) had anything to do with the Sept 11 attacks, it is undeniable that they took full advantage of the tragedy to implement some of their more nefarious policies."

Couldn't agree more.

I think everyones entitled to their own opinion, but it's laughable when some readers cannot (or perhaps will not) see the stark similarities as pointed out in the post.

An age is called Dark, not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.

Conclusion from most of human history thus far:

We've learned nothing.

Bulldog,

If I am to bet between laziness and evil, I'll bet on laziness always. When it comes to conspiracies about 9-11, I think they are mostly made up by people that are properly disturbed, who like the wingnuts, need some shrink attention.

Now, as has been said before, this administration and the terrorists are playing in each others hand. In the context of the reichtag, you need to remember that the Weimar republic was beaten down by both sides of the political spectrum with the brown shirts winning while several thousands miles aways, the reds were winning their fights.

anyway, continue the great posts.

This picture sums it up nicely.

Bulldog: "And lastly, for the record, I am not trying to insinuate that the Neocons are Nazis. Thats just idiotic. I am simply showing the similarities between the Nazi power grab and the Neocon power grab."

No, you aren't trying to infer that Republicans are Nazis you are explicitly saying so.

Keep it up! The GOP needs more ex-Democrats. And I love seeing your party circle the sewer drain. And Karl Rove has been cleared. Your foot has successfully been shot off, again.

Insane Hippie,

Please tell me where I have "explicitly said" that Republicans are Nazis.

If you are going to come on this blog and post, please at least back up your assertions.

I've backed my facts, wherever possible, with references. You have simply stated that I "explicitly" said that all republicans are nazis. You should be prepared to back that claim up. After all, if it is "explicit" it should be obvious, right?

Until you show me where I "explicitly" said Republicans are Nazis (or withdraw this claim), I'll consider it fair to simply delete any post you put up here. I wont let this board turn into just another place for hostile wanna-be-alpha-male-oriented-pricks to come and spew their bile.

There are enough forums for that.

Bulldog,

Love this post. Its nice to meet an eloquent, intelligent, skeptical Democrat with a working set of testicles. Lord knows there weren't any around when I looked to the politicians in November.

The left astounds me. Either Bush is a moron or, in fact, the most brilliant and evil conspiricist in human history. Which is it?

I also find the silly link between "neocons" and Nazis extremely offenisve. NAZIS MADE LAMPSHADES OUT OF HUMAN SKIN. The gassed 6 MILLION PEOPLE in an orchestrated campaign of mass extermination.

Are you really trying to link people like Wolfowitz (a jew) and Rumsfeld (two people who, no doubt, have made some poor political judgments) with the Nazis just because they are your political enemies?

This is why no one can take the left seriously anymore. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Go find a former concentraition camp prisoner and try to tell them that Bush & Co. is the same thing as the people who wanted to gas them and thier whole family.

Interesting post. Food for thought!

the list administrator,

No offense, but your reading comprehension skills are somewhat lacking. I never said the neocons are nazis, and I would never imply such a thing. Please read my post again. If you still have questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

Try not to assume anything more than what I am saying. By the way, a nazi is a fascist, but a fascist is not, per se, always a nazi. In other wordds, there are many forms of fascism, naziism being one of them. I believe this administration has exhibited fascist tendencies (Actually, I dont even think this is debatable). But it certainly is not nazi.

Thus, it makes no difference if the people in the administration are jews or gentiles. Even a Jew can be fascist.

Thanks for the post though and please feel free to post more in the future.
