Trump’s Stalingrad

Steps back a minute and look at one of the main course of events that brought Hitler to his knees. Most of his war efforts-invasions of other countries had been going smoothly with very few hiccups. He thought he and his mighty armies were invincible. He totally underestimated the fighting capability of the Soviet Army. In the end, when defeat was eminent and certain, he refused to accept the fact that the Russians were destroying his army. Hitler underestimated the power of the Russian army and the brutal Russian winters.

Hitler’s Generals told him, to continue fighting in Russia ,was a lost cause. He refused to believe them. As a result, hundreds of thousands German solders were killed and 25 divisions were lost.  One hundred and eighty thousand Germans were captured.

Fast forwards to today. Trump and his minions have denied and refuse to accept the strength of the Coronavirus 19 virus.  Trump has been strutting around with his chest stuck out bragging about how great America is doing. Despite warnings to the contrary from those in the know, he refuse to accept their conclusions and says, ”All is well. “ Despite warnings about the condition of the American economy, he says America is well on its way to overcoming the down turn in the economy and will recover by the end of 2020. According to reliable sources, untold number of Americans have died due to the outbreak of Coronavirus 19 virus. The number of deaths in America does not interest him, He sees it as collateral damage Trump’s inaction to information he received in January about an impending Pandemic virus outbreak in America defies logic.  Why did he refuse to take action, initially?

Hitler was obsessed with capturing Stalingrad, no matter the cost in human lives. Trump is obsessed with keeping good stock market numbers, low unemployment numbers and new jobs created, despite increasing loss of lives and illness. . Trump feels these are the numbers that count in America. He is determined to open up factories, beaches, bars, and houses of worship and other workplaces where many people work together in close quarters. Forgot one other number he is obsessed with- the number of people at his rallies.

A special message to Trump supporters

 

A writer makes it very plain what happens when a Nation’s Judicial System is undermined. He penned the following.

Any democracy is as strong or as weak as the institutions that underpin its edifice. When democracy is subverted it is the institutional reliability of the judicial system that is dismantled first. A grand sweep of history bears testimony to these maxims. Whenever judicial independence is undermined, tyranny, chaos and then anarchy, in that order, are its inevitable corollaries.

. Trump and most Republican lawmakers, for whatever reason, feel the courts are there to support Trump and not the American Judicial System. This is right out of Hitler’s play book.

As I look at what is taking place in America’s Judicial System, I am reminded of the mindset of Hitler regarding Germany’s Judicial System. Look at how Trump handle matters that he wishes to go his way. Simply, he moves it to the so-called Justice Department and eventually to the courts. America’s Courts, including The Supreme Court are loaded with judges appointed by Republican lawmakers. One must remember, Republicans deliberately stacked the courts with Trump supporters, in anticipation of conflicts between Trump and Democratic Lawmakers.

It is almost like Trump has his own courts that handles any opposition to his violations of constitutional laws and Judicial Norms.

 Hitler said: “I expect the German legal profession to understand that the nation is not here for them but they are here for the nation… From now on, I shall intervene in these cases and remove from office those judges who evidently do not understand the demand of the hour.” Of course, Trump cannot remove judges, but Republicans has stacked courts with staunch Trump Supporters. Thus removal of judges is not necessary.

Look at this: Judges in Nazi Germany were instructed that in the event of any conflict between the Nazi Party and Law, the Nazi Party should always succeed as their objectives surmounted any notions of fair play. Isn’t this the way Trump and his Republican Lawmakers see things? They are unashamedly  willing to forgo any semblance of right and wrong and regard for laws and the US Constitution?
