The FBI’s Gestapo Tactics are the Hallmarks of an Authoritarian Regime

John & Nisha Whitehead

“We want no Gestapo or Secret Police. FBI is tending in that direction.
Harry Truman

With every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention.

These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry reign supreme. Rather, they are the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, where secret police control the populace through intimidation, fear and official lawlessness on the part of government agents.

That authoritarian danger is now posed by the FBI, whose love affair with totalitarianism began long ago. Indeed, according to the New York Times, the U.S. government so admired the Nazi regime that following the second World War, it secretly and aggressively recruited at least a thousand Nazis, including some of Hitler’s highest henchmen as part of Operation Paperclip. American taxpayers have been paying to keep these ex-Nazis on the U.S. government’s payroll ever since.

If the government’s covert, taxpayer-funded employment of Nazis after World War II weren’t bad enough, U.S. government agencies—the FBI, CIA and the military—adopted many of the Third Reich’s well-honed policing tactics, and have used them against American citizens.

Indeed, the FBI’s laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property, and that’s just based on what we know.

Compare the FBI’s far-reaching powers to surveil, detain, interrogate, investigate, prosecute, punish, police and generally act as a law unto themselves—powers that have grown since 9/11, transforming the FBI into a mammoth federal policing and surveillance agency that largely operates as a power unto itself, beyond the reach of established laws, court rulings and legislative mandates—to its Nazi counterparts, the Gestapo—and then try to convince yourself that the United States is not a totalitarian police state.

Just like the Gestapo, the FBI has vast resources, vast investigatory powers, and vast discretion to determine who is an enemy of the state.

Today, the FBI employs more than 35,000 individuals and operates more than 56 field offices in major cities across the U.S., as well as 400 resident agencies in smaller towns, and more than 50 international offices. In addition to their “data campus,” which houses more than 96 million sets of fingerprints from across the United States and elsewhere, the FBI has also built a vast repository of “profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime.

What they have done is appear to be acting suspiciously to a town sheriff, a traffic cop or even a neighbor.” The FBI’s burgeoning databases on Americans are not only being added to and used by local police agencies, but are also being made available to employers for real-time background checks.

All of this is made possible by the agency’s nearly unlimited resources (President Biden’s budget projections allocate $10.8 billion for the FBI), the government’s vast arsenal of technology, the interconnectedness of government intelligence agencies, and information sharing through fusion centers—data collecting intelligence agencies spread throughout the country that constantly monitor communications (including those of American citizens), everything from internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails.

Much like the Gestapo spied on mail and phone calls, FBI agents have carte blanche access to the citizenry’s most personal information.

Working through the U.S. Post Office, the FBI has access to every piece of mail that passes through the postal system: more than 160 billion pieces are scanned and recorded annually.

Moreover, the agency’s National Security Letters, one of the many illicit powers authorized by the USA Patriot Act, allows the FBI to secretly demand that banks, phone companies, and other businesses provide them with customer information and not disclose those demands to the customer. An internal audit of the agency found that the FBI practice of issuing tens of thousands of NSLs every year for sensitive information such as phone and financial records, often in non-emergency cases, is riddled with widespread constitutional violations.

Much like the Gestapo’s sophisticated surveillance programs, the FBI’s spying capabilities can delve into Americans’ most intimate details (and allow local police to do so, as well).

In addition to technology (which is shared with police agencies) that allows them to listen in on phone calls, read emails and text messages, and monitor web activities, the FBI’s surveillance boasts an invasive collection of spy tools ranging from Stingray devices that can track the location of cell phones to Triggerfish devices which allow agents to eavesdrop on phone calls.

In one case, the FBI actually managed to remotely reprogram a “suspect’s” wireless internet card so that it would send “real-time cell-site location data to Verizon, which forwarded the data to the FBI.” Law enforcement agencies are also using social media tracking software to monitor Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.

Moreover, secret FBI rules also allow agents to spy on journalists without significant judicial oversight.

Much like the Gestapo’s ability to profile based on race and religion, and its assumption of guilt by association, the FBI’s approach to pre-crime allows it to profile Americans based on a broad range of characteristics including race and religion.

The agency’s biometric database has grown to massive proportions, the largest in the world, encompassing everything from fingerprints, palm, face and iris scans to DNA, and is being increasingly shared between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to target potential criminals long before they ever commit a crime. This is what’s known as pre-crime.

Yet it’s not just your actions that will get you in trouble. In many cases, it’s also who you know—even minimally—and where your sympathies lie that could land you on a government watch list. Moreover, as the Intercept reports, despite anti-profiling prohibitions, the bureau “claims considerable latitude to use race, ethnicity, nationality, and religion in deciding which people and communities to investigate.”

Much like the Gestapo’s power to render anyone an enemy of the state, the FBI has the power to label anyone a domestic terrorist.

As part of the government’s so-called ongoing war on terror, the nation’s de facto secret police force has begun using the terms “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably.

Moreover, the government continues to add to its growing list of characteristics that can be used to identify an individual (especially anyone who disagrees with the government) as a potential domestic terrorist.

For instance, you might be a domestic terrorist in the eyes of the FBI (and its network of snitches) if you:

  • express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
  • exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
  • read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
  • show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
  • fear an economic collapse
  • buy gold and barter items
  • subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
  • voice fears about Big Brother or big government
  • expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
  • believe in a New World Order conspiracy

Much like the Gestapo infiltrated communities in order to spy on the German citizenry, the FBI routinely infiltrates political and religious groups, as well as businesses.

As Cora Currier writes for the Intercept:

Using loopholes it has kept secret for years, the FBI can in certain circumstances bypass its own rules in order to send undercover agents or informants into political and religious organizations, as well as schools, clubs, and businesses…”

The FBI has even been paying Geek Squad technicians at Best Buy to spy on customers’ computers without a warrant.

Just as the Gestapo united and militarized Germany’s police forces into a national police force, America’s police forces have largely been federalized and turned into a national police force.

In addition to government programs that provide the nation’s police forces with military equipment and training, the FBI also operates a National Academy that trains thousands of police chiefs every year and indoctrinates them into an agency mindset that advocates the use of surveillance technology and information sharing between local, state, federal, and international agencies.

Just as the Gestapo’s secret files on political leaders were used to intimidate and coerce, the FBI’s files on anyone suspected of “anti-government” sentiment have been similarly abused.

As countless documents make clear, the FBI has no qualms about using its extensive powers in order to blackmail politicians, spy on celebrities and high-ranking government officials, and intimidate and attempt to discredit dissidents of all stripes. For example, not only did the FBI follow Martin Luther King Jr. and bug his phones and hotel rooms, but agents also sent him anonymous letters urging him to commit suicide and pressured a Massachusetts college into dropping King as its commencement speaker.

Just as the Gestapo carried out entrapment operations, the FBI has become a master in the art of entrapment.

In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI has not only targeted vulnerable individuals but has also lured or blackmailed them into fake terror plots while actually equipping them with the organization, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots—entrapment—and then jailing or deporting them for their so-called terrorist plotting.

This is what the FBI characterizes as “forward leaning—preventative—prosecutions.” In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts.

USA Today estimates that FBI agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day. Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.

When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America, in much the same way that the empowerment of Germany’s secret police tracked with the rise of the Nazi regime.

How did the Gestapo become the terror of the Third Reich?

It did so by creating a sophisticated surveillance and law enforcement system that relied for its success on the cooperation of the military, the police, the intelligence community, neighborhood watchdogs, government workers for the post office and railroads, ordinary civil servants, and a nation of snitches inclined to report “rumors, deviant behavior, or even just loose talk.”

In other words, ordinary citizens working with government agents helped create the monster that became Nazi Germany. Writing for the New York Times, Barry Ewen paints a particularly chilling portrait of how an entire nation becomes complicit in its own downfall by looking the other way:

In what may be his most provocative statement, [author Eric A.] Johnson says that “most Germans may not even have realized until very late in the war, if ever, that they were living in a vile dictatorship.” This is not to say that they were unaware of the Holocaust; Johnson demonstrates that millions of Germans must have known at least some of the truth. But, he concludes, “a tacit Faustian bargain was struck between the regime and the citizenry.” The government looked the other way when petty crimes were being committed. Ordinary Germans looked the other way when Jews were being rounded up and murdered; they abetted one of the greatest crimes of the 20th century not through active collaboration but through passivity, denial and indifference.

Much like the German people, “we the people” have become passive, polarized, gullible, easily manipulated, and lacking in critical thinking skills.  Distracted by entertainment spectacles, politics and screen devices, we too are complicit, silent partners in creating a police state similar to the terror practiced by former regimes.

Had the government tried to ram such a state of affairs down our throats suddenly, it might have had a rebellion on its hands. Instead, the American people have been given the boiling frog treatment, immersed in water that slowly is heated up—degree by degree—so that they’ve fail to notice that they’re being trapped and cooked and killed.

“We the people” are in hot water now.

The Constitution doesn’t stand a chance against a federalized, globalized standing army of government henchmen protected by legislative, judicial and executive branches that are all on the same side, no matter what political views they subscribe to: suffice it to say, they are not on our side or the side of freedom.

From Presidents Clinton to Bush, then Obama to Trump and now Biden, it’s as if we’ve been caught in a time loop, forced to re-live the same thing over and over again: the same assaults on our freedoms, the same disregard for the rule of law, the same subservience to the Deep State, and the same corrupt, self-serving government that exists only to amass power, enrich its shareholders and ensure its continued domination.

Can the Fourth Reich happen here?

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, it’s already happening right under our noses.

Today, ordinary citizens working on behalf of government/oligarch/ideologue policies is what constitutes the psychosis in modern western societies. They have adopted beliefs they know nothing about or why, these individuals make up internet forum admins, shop/institute reception staff, marketing personal and they give the mirage that the entire society collectively believes the ideology by disregarding, banning, censoring and silencing all civil intelligent questioning; usually blaming this isn’t the place for that or it’ll cause an upset. Treating people like children, there is now rarely an adult conversation in daily life. It’s a brewing cauldron of resentment, not good.

The West IS now at least a thought fascist state brought about by those under the vows of free expression. You literally can’t get an intelligent reply from any of them on current important social and political issues, unfortunately they’re still functional enough to hold authoritative positions.

Hi, Christine.

That sounded like an order. And also reminded me of some of the metods used by the collaborators of our former socialist state security. But this is a free association, I’m not implying anything.

Are you talking about any of your several posts where you say you own a library of 1,200 books and have read 20 books that confirm the official version of the holocaust? I own a library of over 3,000 books and have read at least 60 that convincingly refute the official version of the holocaust. I am also well aware, including from the books mentioned, of a vast network for combating holocaust deniers, larger and stronger than any other network. This network also includes a huge number of collaborators from all walks of life, scattered across the internet as ordinary users to fight holocaust deniers. It’s not even a secret.

Do I need to ask permission, or feel guilty, or under surveillance, to express doubts about the officially distributed and supported version of the holocaust by a big machine? Recent history remembers a number of cases of people fined, dismissed, arrested and imprisoned for denying the official version of the holocaust. The question is: Can I afford it here, or rather feel like an anti-holocaster expecting to be hit on the head with a slipper at any moment?:)

(I’m exaggerating a little about “the threat I feel from you”, I don’t have a problem:) I know you’re a very good person, but a little confused about holocaust and you’ll get better.)

Try “One third of the holocaust” on youtube for a deeper look into confusion.
Do stacks of corpses burn on their own?
How much space and wood / gasoline would be needed to burn 5million (or was it 6) chosen ones’ corpses down to ash (no bodies or bones found) while simultaneously waging war against Europe and the US?
How many more million holo-c survivors?

While there is no strict moratorium here on questioning the accuracy of any historical goings-on, snide ethno-religious epithets like ‘chosen ones’ are hateful and obnoxious, especially in this context. There is no doubt in my mind that Jewish men, women and children trapped in Nazi ghettos and camps, or indeed any ethnic groups persecuted by that regime as historically documented, did not consider themselves ‘chosen’. As if this even needs to be said. There are other places on the internet you can go to throw around trite bigotries like this. Go there, if you must. Thank you, A2

Poor fellow, your country. The resource-rapists don’t particularly care who is in government, just as long as they don’t get in the way of the ‘ money-trough’. I wonder which Banks are doing the banking for the pathetically-corrupted (Native) Africans? I’m willing to wager that it isn’t Afrikaarner or African owned Banks … If only the Sarf Efricans actually paid attention to what was printed on their earlier coins, i.e. ‘Eendrag maak mag’ … which translates to Unity is strength … the place would have ejected the international pillagers and nationalised the phenomenal resource wealth for the benefit of ALL South Africans. Euro-American greed has left a terribly polarized and fractured paradise, which can still be salvaged if the Mining conglomerates are turfed-out and the rapacious greed of the ANC cadres can be exorcised.

Yep, the thing about these secret police – of whatever state or country – is that they have landed themselves a really cushy job. Job for life, pensioned, well-paid, holiday entitlement, secret life-style, paid-up leave and so on and so forth. Of course these people live outside the ordinary social conventions of ordinary folk and accrue to themselves status and a life-long secure employment. Kids education and health plan paid for, good pension and the rest. No wonder their total loyalty is to the state.

This is obviously not “another point you forgot to make”. You were intending to post as a different person and to create a lengthy “debate” in order to clog up the thread and make real discussion more difficult (yes we are aware of that tactic).

I just can’t understand why the US after WW2 seriously imagined that “some of Hitler’s highest henchmen” had a better grasp on reality than the best educated and most intelligent Americans did.

It obviously boils down to utilizing sheer practical experience – certainly a valuable asset – but otherwise we are basically talking about the same numskulls that helped Hitler lose his grip entirely – and the same sort of numskulls that are also currently helping Washington lose its grip entirely…

What do you expect? The people who funded Hitler and the Nazis were US businessmen, financiers and industrialists the oligarchs who run America. https://cdn.preterhuman.net/texts/religion.occult.new_age/occult.conspiracy.and.related/Roge They were fascists who wanted to expand their power and influence. They were also the people behind the attempted coup of FDR. https://timeline.com/business-plot-overthrow-fdr-9a59a012c32a
Way before Nazi Germany the US government waged war on dissidents, activists, vocal non-conformists, organized labor and people of color daring to challenge the oppressive apartheid system in this country. Now many ordinary white folks are experiencing what the FBI did to those people since it was formed (even before). Remember in the 1960’s the FBI’s COINTELPRO went after the American Indian Movement, the Peace Movement, organized labor, the migrant workers, the Black Power Movement and so many others. The FBI has moved from threat suppression, to counter insurgency to an expanded war on the whole society. The FBI is an integral part of Big Brother and the New World Order.

But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor – he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation – he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city – he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” and he carries his banners openly.

This idea the FBI borrowed technique or personnel from Nazi Germany, needs to become more nuanced, in order not to disregard the historicity of US-German relations circa 1940.

Specifically, the ongoing relationships between America’s largest corporations and the 3rd Reich throughout the war, should dispel the myth we were fighting Hitler to save the world from fascism. Without American corporate assistance, the German war machine would not have come into being, nor been able to sustain the war, which primarily took place between Germany and the Soviets.

Only after we acknowledge and wrestle with the true nature and function of WW2, can we begin to address the reality of the enemy we face today.

Unfortunately for Wall Street/ City of London, their man in Moscow one Lev Bronstein aka Leon Trotsky and his merry band of Marxists who sailed via Halifax, Canada plus Lloyd George’s blessing were outmanoeuvred in their quest for world revolution by a man with a gammy arm from Georgia, not the one in the US. His name was loseb dzhugashvilli aka Joseph Stalin.

As time progressed it became obvious that their scheme was not going according to plan so more diabolical deeds were underway, hence why Hitler and the third Reich received so much help both financially, structurally and last but not least politically.

This can be seen by the British Empire plus to lesser extent France doing their outmost to thwart any alliance with the USSR to prevent Hitler’s expansionist plans. Ivan Maisky, former USSR ambassador to the U.K. 1931- 1943 witnessed this.

of the atrocities from then, were appeared the noose, for their crimes against humanity, by being brought to the US, and other places, and then essentially, picking up where they left off.

For all you idiots out there that say “back the blue” remember there can be no police state without the police. If there is one constant throughout modern human history it is that cops are on their own side and no one else’s it is all about power. The Gestapo would have been largely powerless in 1940’s France if not for the willing cooperation of the French Gendarmerie. I disagree with the vast majority that comes from the American Bolsheviks but the acronym ACAB (all cops are bastards) is spot on.

1) The goings-on in the Whitmer “kidnapping” case are strangely omitted. The trial of the two men recently convicted saw some outrageous behaviour by a judge who looked instructed to obtain a conviction come hell or high water. The FBI’s entrapment operation was ruled largely inadmissible.
2) The constant harping on about the Gestapo and no other secret police (the NKVD, the Stasi etc) was equally odd. Mainstream historians have been arguing for three decades that the Gestapo was largely a postwar myth. Analysis of Gestapo staffing levels (i think it was Robert Gellately who was the historian but might be misremembering that) shows they were remarkably low. There were not Gestapo officers on every street corner. This is not to make the mistake of going on to say Nazism was somehow good, it wasn’t. It is to dent that it was some unique touchstone of evil compared to Communism or “liberal” regimes when the chips are down (usually seen in their colonies).

In addition to other agencies besides the Gestapo that were omitted, the article only focuses primarily on the FBI and they are not by any means the only ones involved in this. Back when the NSA wiretapping was leaked, it was said that they put a stop to it. In fact the act of doing so was not stopped by any means. The NSA simply handed off the task to the FBI utilizing all the same equipment and Technology to do so since it was already in place and the information obtained then shared with not only the NSA but the CIA, Homeland security, etc.

The FBI has always been part law enforcement, part intelligence gathering and part internal security. Back in the day it was J. Edgar Hoover’s private domain and it kept an eye on what it thought were ‘enemies of the state’ — civil rights, trades unions, socialists — while being surprisingly lax about the various right wing extremist organizations that have always bedeviled us. In that sense its no different from the Gestapo, the Sicherheitsdienst (“SD”)(its rather nasty twin), the British Special Branch, the Stasi, the GRU/NKVD/whatever, and a host of other three and four letter agencies world wide.

What you’re really complaining about is that its finally been proven untrue what President Trump said back when he was a candidate in 2016 — he claimed he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and not “lose any voters”. The implication in this statement is that he was above the law. He might have believed it, especially as President because of the deference we give political office and its candidates, but there comes a point where you just can’t continue to flout the law and expect to get away with it by bullying society. The FBI have just been acting as the enforcement arm of the Department of Justice. This doesn’t make them “the Gestapo” – the real Gestapo would have just done a “Nacht and Nebel” on him, probably not even stopping to do one of their signature interrogations in a cellar before putting a bullet into his head. For this raid the FBI have gone to great lengths to do everything by the book and then some. For Trump’s supporters this is obviously not good enough but then there’s no satisfying them short of re-installing Trump as Fuhrer for life.

There’s always been fascist tendencies in the GoP but until recently its been held in check by the party establishment. They’ve lost their touch, though so now we have to deal with all the trappings of fascism in our midst — armed mobs proclaiming freedom, deference to authority, persecution of minorities and ‘deviants’, all social toppings to the underlying corporate state. This isn’t my vision of America. Sorry.

Thirdly: Trump’s character notwithstanding, he did more for Americans in his first two years than the Democrats have in twenty.

Fourthly: The Democrats and the MSM are now blaming Trump for the ‘vaccine’ which Biden mandated and the MSM applauded. Talk about being hypocritical.

Trump was obsessed with image — all that fuss about the size of the inauguration crowd — and he was a serial liar. He had no idea how to run an administration.

Fort those of us who push the populist line its worth remembering what happened to Ernst Rohm.

You’re right. No-one can be so naive/uninformed/brainwashed as to claim that the Holocaust never happened… there are a multitude of evidences that proves it most definitely did happen. Anyone who claims otherwise has an agenda…

I’ve read more than twenty books on the Holocaust, over the last ten or so years, and there exist many definitive evidences and testimonies which provide incontrovertible proof that it did indeed take place.
Including books written by the few Sonderkommando (the people who actually worked in the crematoria, after the murders in the gas chambers… they were involved in taking the corpses out of the latter…) who survived, and wrote books on their personal experiences.

How could you read and understand twenty books when you couldn’t even understand my comment? I wrote that the official story about the “holocaust” is BS. This is not the same as saying nothing happened.

But even if it would have happened as stated. So how come 10 percent of the humans who died in WW2 is so much more important than the other 90% ? Since about 60 million humans died and they are almost never mentioned. So I wonder who is the brainwashed and illiterate one parroting this old BS story further.

I repeat what I said in my post to Andrew O’Gorman… that there truly do exist sufficient evidences to verify that the ‘official’ claims about the Holocaust are correct.
Oh yes, I’m more than aware that the evil, corrupt Establishment on Earth spews out a very great number of whoppers of lies… about numerous subject areas. I’m a 63-year-old Englishwoman who’s been ‘awake’ for 40+ years. I was aware, in my late teens/early 20s, of the Globalist cabal who actually run/control the world, etc etc (and am aware of many other big truths that the Establishment/’officialdom’ tells blatant lies/untruths about).

However, the above being so, I’ve come across nothing that would refute the ‘official’ account of the Holocaust in the 1940s. I’ve read some of the stuff by the ‘deniers’ (in fact, am reading a book on that, right now… “Denying the Holocaust”, by Deborah Lipstadt; in the book, she addresses the many claims of the ‘deniers’, and proves them all to be without substance), but have read nothing that provides proper support for what you ‘deniers’ merely claim…

And, just so you know, I’m neither brainwashed nor illiterate… I have 1200+ [twelve hundred+] in my personal library, and all bar about 12 of them are NON-fiction books on a multitude of different subjects.

I’ve been a very scholarly person since the tender age of 10 (ie, for 53-54 years, now being 63), and, as I stated in my post to you of just over an hour ago, my own personal library currently contains 1200+ NON-fiction books, covering a multitude of different subjects (my major subject passion being history… from Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, down to the English Civil War, and I own, and have read, more than 300 immensely scholarly books on those subject areas).

Oh I read all right… I began reading at the tender age of just two (our parents made great efforts, when I and my siblings were very young, to make sure that we learnt to read at that young age), and I’ve been a passionate reader of scholarly books ever since the age of ten [at the latter age, I was studying the sciences of astronomy and cosmology, reading many books on that subject that were intended for adults… borrowing them from our then local library on my father’s library card].

I frequently read 700pp-1000pp books: non-fiction, scholarly books on history and other scholarly topics.

I even stared reading fantasy and was enthralled by series (14) The Wheel of Time – Robert Jordan. I was looking forward to seeing how they would be interpreted on the small screen and have seen the ‘first’ season will give the rest a miss.

Which goes back to your statement about the veracity of the Holocaust.

You’re so right when you say that the world has gone mad.
What’s happening is so very evil, and still many, many people are wholly oblivious to what’s really going on.

My own extended family (and all but two already ‘awake’ friends) are still ‘believing’ what they are ‘told’ on their beloved TVs. Even though, right from the start of this global nightmare, I’ve been providing them all with a wealth of trustworthy information from honest doctors, nurses, scientists, funeral directors, embalmers, etc. And also have given them information re. the people [the Globalist cabal…] who actually run/control the world (I’ve been ‘awake’ for 40+ years).
But still they choose to believe the ‘official narrative’ of the past 2.5 years.

They’ve all compliantly rolled up their sleeves and had three (and in the case of my sister’s husband, and two of my friends, four…) injections each. My sister’s hubby had two TIA’s [transient ischaemic attacks.. ie, mini-strokes] a couple of months ago, just a few weeks after his fourth ‘jab’… and still they choose to believe the narrative… words fail me.
My longtime partner passed from Earth in early 2019. He was 70. I think (although he might have surprised me, and seen through it…) that he, too, would have fallen for the scam/hoax. And would have rolled up his sleeves… [he had a life-threatening lung disease, and would thus have been regarded as ‘vulnerable’.
His probable decision to submit to the injections might well have caused contention between he and I, for I absolutely refuse to comply with the ‘jabs’.

I too have read thousands of books, during the last fifty years, on a multitude of different subjects; but I own just 1200+.
