If you're a Prime Member, you can watch the full what-if series by Ridley Scott, titled The Man in the High Castle. Presumption is that the Axis Powers won WWII, what if, what would life in 1962 be like. Trailer is here:

. :TVpopcorn: .


Now, to replaying actual history: Hitler, the Rise of Evil. Fabulous portrayal of Hitler by Robert Carlyle, who knocked me dead in the unforgettable movie, Ravenous.

Hopefully, this poster's copy of the Hitler movie, has no anti-semitic ad to get the 'free book' in the upper right corner while the video (a dramatization of Hitler's rise starring Stockard Channing).. plays. All the other ones I could find in Youtube which will allow offsite play, have ads to anti-semitic 'Zionist' propaganda. All the Hitler movies in Youtube have pro-Nazi commenters who come in on the movies like the liars promoting Windows 8 and 10, come onto articles about it. All disregarding the FACTS which are PROVABLE, all with the same hive mind as the Muslims.

Dang, it's happening all over again in the age 30 and below crowd, mostly white but also many black males. So these movies are more important to watch, than normal. GO READ THE COMMENTS YOURSELF, so you'll know what historical time it is. We're heading toward WWIII, for the mental attitude which gave birth to War 2, is again prevalent. Herdbound anti-semitism is on the rise.

Goes to show that all the truth on the planet, means nothing to anti-semites. Which, accounts for how a Hitler could rise then.. or now. It's creepy how many of these movies are sponsored by neo-Nazi channels on Youtube: as if they cannot understand the meaning of the movies they post. Be very careful. I don't think the ones below, are from such channels.
Part I
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhP9R2TnIu8

Part II

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWF-VXQOV5o

Since Part II in that version has 30 minutes cut out, here's a lower-resolution version of the full movie. You'll want to start it at about 2 hours in, for the above Part II also cuts out some of the footage in Part II. Sorry, but all the other posts of this movie are worse (incompetent, anti-semitic sponsors, etc). At least this one sports Spanish subtitles, so you can brush up on your Spanish...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOoVfrBmHUA

And in case you think Hollywood overstated the case, try watching the next video, which is a compilation of individual Germans who made personal films and wrote letters or diaries.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTQ4TILv3RQ

Next, Hitler In Color. Again, footage with a personal emphasis, but made by the Nazis themselves, live at the moment, recording everything, so proud of their Fuhrer. What's so shocking about this narrated-by-Brian-Cox video, is not the video itself -- which has a lot of new footage and in color -- but the comments on the video in Youtube. Total infestation with neo-Nazis wanting to kill Jews and resurrect the Reich. Ironically, their seedpod CURRENT voices help underscore the story Cox narrates, how a whole nation of people could be so duped. For the CURRENT voices in the comments, clearly are alike duped.. despite FULL FOOTAGE available to prove how wrong they are? So now you know a) how it happened, and b) it will happen again. Pray for Israel, another wave leading to War as I type, is occurring. And now, for what it was and will again be, and why...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEerqYY8N4U


So after Poland was taken over, all the Jews were rounded up and thrown into horribly squalid conditions in the infamous Warsaw ghetto. Germans CREATED the squalid ghetto, robbed the Jews of everything they had, took away their means of livelihood too, then film the results as if the Jews wanted to live the way forced upon them. Again: they were robbed, denied all means of livelihood and manner of food and work, treated like pigs. Then, they were filmed to show how squalid the conditions.. which, were blamed on them, as you'll see in this propaganda piece sold to Germans at the time:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BY0Z70iGyj4

Never mind, there were so many Jews who had lived in Europe for centuries, everyone knew better, and knew this movie was a lie. Anti-semitism rots the brain. Become anti-semitic, and you'll believe anything, and become a criminal yourself, overnight.

So of course, Hitler's fall is extensively covered, best to read Shirer and Speer's books, but you really need movies to best 'experience' what it was like. The most famous of the movies is Downfall; snippets of which, keep making parodies, but the reality was quite awful. Alec Guinness made his own version of Hitler quite believable, too, film called 'Hitler: the Last 10 Days' in American cable, and purchasable in Amazon or Youtube with that title. Sometimes it plays in Comcast.

Shirer's haunting book was made into a movie, following next below. At 2:06 hrs, you'll hear the familiar number 91,000 prisoners.. here of Stalingrad, February 1943. But to someone steeped in Bible, that same number first reminds you of Titus' Arch and Josephus' claim of that number being taken in similar triumph at Rome when 2nd Temple fell (filmed below, again at 2:06 hours, but in Russia).

This video charts the chronology more completely than the others. Notice how there is a 12-month or 18-month interval from Jan 30 '33 onward, for the benchmark 'changes' (starting with Hitler's Chancellory). What amazes me, is this: how could it all happen so fast? A hive mentality among the masses is the only explanation. Remember, they didn't have modern technology like we do. Keep that in mind as you watch, for not only Germany was herdbound, but Italy, Russia, Japan, China, even Britan and America, Latin America, and of course the Middle East and Africa (which were still largely of the colony mentality).

All this parading and massing. Hard to realize all the politeness and stress on appearance so attractive in the movies of this period, go hand in hand with the massing, so the politeness and stress on attractive appearance, fitting in -- tells quite a different (horrible) story...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEw0RIaYrtE

One of the best versions of Hitler's fall, is The Bunker starring Anthony Hopkins; am surprised to see its VHS version in Youtube. Hopkins' transformation into der Fuhrer is absolutely stunning. You'll want to buy the movie too, once you see even part of it, below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNf3S9dBKxU


To get a sense of the authenticity, here's a colorized German propaganda film (should be in public domain) about the career of Adolf Hitler. The voiceover is done much later, recompiling the film material to tell its own version of how bad Hitler was. So you get the contemporary worshippy version with the sound off, and the newsreel-sounding condemnatory version with the sound on. Speaker sounds very like a young Anthony Hopkins, but isn't. Subtitles are in Swedish.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYND3SYHq5k


The classic Propaganda film, Triumph of the Will, is finally in Youtube. It's in public domain, but may yet be banned in Germany, so maybe if you're there, you'll see a 'not available' message, here. I used part of it for my 3/72 KJVOB video (showing KJVO is Bible Nazism). So when you see that part, now you'll know the original context.

Warning: this is a very gross and frightening movie. It has no bloodshed. Rather, it's frightening to realize the film is a live recording of the Nurnberg rally made 19+ months after Hitler became Chancelor; all that massing, all that organization, all that tirelessness and slavishness.. is not merely people being forced. You can learn a lot about the psychology of an audience by the movies they like, and this one, unbelievably, was a hit. The same mindset exists today in the young, so past is prologue. You can adjust it to 1080p, but probably only 480p real resolution will result, as the original film was made while Hitler was in power.

As always, if you click on any of the Youtube links, you not only can see the video in Youtube, but there is a sidebar of many more related movies, as well. Submit it will be important to know this time in history, for we're about to repeat it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4gVcHE2HcU


English translations of speech swatches, so you can better hear his personal appeals, understand how he could capture the hearts of Germans so easily:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnpTWKKWQ1o

And many Germans took personal films during the War, some of which are assembled here: the assembly focuses on the fall, from Barbarossa forward. (Video's Youtube title is wrong, as you'll see within the first 5 minutes of the film.)

Not only the Jews, but also other untermenschen were rounded up by Hitler's sick policies. Here, the Gypsies. For you really have to be far gone to be anti-semitic, and when you run out of Jews to round up, well..

This subject never gets enough coverage. The prejudice of the West against the 'little yellow men' was and remains, incredibly childish. Were it not for Japan, Hitler's war would have collapsed much sooner or lasted much longer; for Japan's success at the beginning of the century (as you'll see in the videos below) kept Russia somewhat occupied, and until Japan invaded at Pearl Harbor.. kept the US at bay. Once roused, we ever-parochial Americans would finally help shorten the war. So many lives were saved on both sides.

More importantly, Japan needed to fight as a way of gaining its own independence from the West. Same was true for all Asia, and especially China. But China an Japan had already been warring off and on for centuries, so in a sense it took until World War II ended, for that fight to die off. At which point, it famously became and remains, economic.

This too is why North Korea remains mired in WWII mentality, with all the characteristics of Hitler, Stalyin, and Communism in Mao's classical style, despite 70 years of history afterwards.

So how did Japan become so enmeshed?

Just read how vile these anti-semites are, in an article about how Israel and Google will cooperate to reduce Palestinian inflammatory videos.

Oh, we must keep those videos, to show what scum these people are. Seriously. This is why Europe is being overrun by Mudslims. They are anti-semitic. America, too.

Pray God destroy the guilty. Only He knows who they are.

Its always the little things that make issues crystal clear for me. For example, this article about the EU forcing products to be labelled "made in Israeli occupied territory." Article here:

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/91ce7f40-96cb ... z3sz3ya46l

Or, closer to home, the administration's flirtation with banning pork in federal prisons. Article here:

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/federa ... id/696612/

My take: Europe is a hotbed for anti-Semitic vermin, so why shouldn't they import Muslims by the millions? Its a tragedy what's happening to them, but every suicide is a tragedy. God is just letting them have a taste of what they really, really wanted. The same thing could be said for us. The gun is at our head. Will we put it down? I don't know, but we will all know in a year from now. One of the fundamental blessings God gives any nation is its sovereignty. Right now, in the United States, we are on the precipice of taking ours back. But our suicide wouldn't surprise me either. For us to continue with the status quot is akin to squeezing the trigger. The saddest truth of all about this subject to me is that we are one of the last powerful countries on earth that even has an inkling of pro-Jewish sentiment left in it.

If we fall...???

You're right. We gotta grow, that's the only perimeter of defense left.

Example: just now, LOL all my comments which were on topic to urge Israel not to censor Palestinian videos, were DELETED by whoever is the mod for the article here, but most of the anti-semitic posts even with foul language, remained intact.

I was trying to present evidence as in the Pallywood thread about what Arabs do that proves them liars, so to show why no censorship should be imposed; for that, I got censored without warning or explanation. I don't swear, to me that's childish. Lots of swearing in the posts which remain.

So what can one conclude about the moderator?

I disagree with you about the use of swear words, but that's really not the issue. The moderator has chosen his side in the war. Regardless of the language you used, he was going to (in his mind) shut you down. That's the conclusion I reach. The problem here in the West is that the issues are so clouded and muddled, we don't even have a side of the war to pick. Most westerners do not realize they are even in a war at all. And if they get an inkling that they are, the crypt o-socialist will retort with a barrage of accusations like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' so that knee jerk 'white guilt' will castrate all inquiries into the arrow heads currently sticking out of them. I would imagine, even before being herded into box cars we'll still be apologizing for being oppressive racist imperialists. We are sitting ducks for both our enemies within and without. The vast majority of the Christians in the US must have lost the spiritual war decades ago for us to currently find ourselves in this sorry state of affairs. They've probably all tongue-talked themselves into believing the rapture is some kind of bonus, so they can rest on their 'laurels' and rejoice at the very, very special, wonderful people Jesus Christ has made them. The love affair that Christians in American churches have with themselves these days is astounding. The churches in Europe are simply empty. They're just 15 to 20 years ahead of us. Maybe less.

You make really good points. So then are we witnessing the beginning of a trend much like the precursor decade to Hitler's rise? That's what I'm trying to track: how far along this century, are we to the same psychological 'location', as last century? For history sure seems to be repeating itself...

I'd say we're closer to ending that decade than we are to entering it. All I know is that a point of no return, where it is too late to change from the course we're on, is just around the corner. This election will be that turning point. Although I support Trump, this is not a plug for him, just a statement of what 'time' I think this is. God doesn't need to use Donald Trump to save us from ourselves, or any other politician for that matter, but He will probably work with a handful of them to let whatever happens, happen. (Though He could just as easily let the super volcano at Yellow Stone go full tilt and melt the whole lot. lol. You never know with that Guy.) Anyway, what I'm saying is that the stage is set, the actors are all in place, and the audience (angelic or otherwise) have bought their popcorn. After the election, maybe even before---the curtain goes up. I really can't stress this enough--patty cake in America is over. You can only idly sit around for so long, doped and dozing, while your enemies prepare for your destruction, before you've got a real mess on your hands. Things are going to get interesting, quick. And lets say I got my wish and DT somehow landed in the WH. If he succeeded in carrying out his main objectives, I still think that only buys us another 10 to 15 years, tops. The generation that is coming up now, the generation that, by a margin of almost 50%, hates free speech and feels constantly offended if someone doesn't agree with their politics of victimhood---how can the nation survive this generation? Seriously. Parting the Red Sea is not near as big a miracle as us surviving their commie indoctrination once they get into power. At that point, or before, we will need our Caesar. It will be Caesar or bust if the nation is to survive at all. Or the states will break up, and a new nation(s) will be born. In blood.

That's all I got. I'm just grateful I know God. If I didn't, I would be having a nervous breakdown about right now. lol

Oh, and I know some people will not like my Caesar POV at all. And no, I do not in any way long for such a thing. I am not only a son of God, but also a son of the Republic. Yet I strive to be realistic about the forces arrayed against us and what place we currently hold in history. If things keep going the way they're going, it will be Caesar or Hitler. Caesar, if we're lucky.

Yeah, agreed on the Caesar thingy. Charismatic in both directions, someone you love or love to hate as an icon. People like the strong man, and DT is playing to that. Not to repeat the book title but.. An American Caesar. Not a MacArthur, but flair people love to watch. One step away from demagogue. Celebrity. Everyone craves that now.

Thing is, without knowing the meter my pastor said long ago that he thought the US had only 40 years left. Depending on when you account it, he was talking that way from either 1990 or 1997. For sure in 1997, for I heard him say it then, in Michigan. So 1990+40=2037.

Going by the 490+70+490 schedules the Bible keeps from Adam onward which are reflected in the Bible's dates when you crunch the math or in the meter: if we account from Christ's birth like Paul does, the end of the 490 is 3 BC+2100 = 2097. Subtract the 120 years occurring at the end of every 490 to play out a 4-generation 'flood' period (not literal now, but still all kinds of activities that flooding connotes), you have 2097-120= start at 1977. If as I had initially supposed, the count begins instead at Christ's death, then add 30 years, so 2007. So 2037 is kinda apt.

Or, as shown in three very boring long videos next (but the first one is short and catchy):

https://vimeo.com/channels/noahicfloodprecedence/78299805

Daniel 9:26 in translation reads that the end comes with a 'flood'.. of troops.

There are times in history that call for "strong men." America has glorified weak men for so long now, its surprising to me that everyone in the nation hasn't recoiled at the likes of DT. Ironically, I don't consider DT all that strong, not by my puny human standards, let alone Biblical standards, but compared to the multiplied quislings in our midst, he is a giant. Its all relative.

But even though he does nothing for me, yet the thrust of his message concerning the country is the correct prescription for our major illness. Internationalism, globalism, communist conspiracy, whatever you want to call it, is Satanic, is the undoing of all peace and stability in our time, is a way to gather the Jews in one place to slaughter them, is a way to prevent established churches from spreading Christian salvation and doctrine. National sovereignty: its essential. And if it comes in the DT Celebrity Apprentice package, then so be it. lol

Well, if that's how it plays out, I'm off by about 5 years.

I watched these a long time ago on YT. When I get a chance, I'll refresh myself and watch them again.

Daniel 9:26 in translation reads that the end comes with a 'flood'.. of troops.


Yes, of course. Russia or China will have to pick up the gauntlet when/if we fall, or time will officially be up. That flood of troops could appear at any time, anywhere in the future. We will see, I suppose, if we live that long. Or unless it is postponed. I just want the world to continue for more souls to join Church, as long as its needed in the Divine plan. I prefer death to rapture anyway. lol

I bolded some of your text, above. Yes, that's the trend now, to keep returning focus to the Middle East just like the Crusades (which hahahaha started when Eternity was originally scheduled to start). So we all congregate in the Valley of Esdraelon.

I'm not a DT fan, but maybe God is hiring him. The media and the hoi pouloi love to talk to the guy and he loves the attention. In any event, the trend you depicted above goes on, whoever God hires to lead secularly.

The thing is, we are the real leaders. We own the place, in Christ. They could be in that group, but don't want to be. Every morning I have to keep remembering this: Lev 26 and Deut 28 can only go sour if I'm not learning and living on Bible.

Funny thing: a Congolese woman (I think that was her nation) was actually CAMPAIGNING for political office just after their civil war ended, using Deut 28. I forget which of the PBS programs it was on in 2005 or 2006, want to say it was Frontline, where they interviewed her.

She presented Deut 28 to a crowd: they, like she, were barefoot, primitive; yet they understood her! She had a thatched hut with a corn broom she clearly made herself, using it to sweep her inner dirt floor.

God hired her for better things, so she lost in the first election the country had (post-war).

So if we get swept into the dustbin of history for not doing our job, she and others will take our place.

Yes, it all depends on us. Terrifying, but true. I come from a family of political junkies where the trend of world history was a major focus of conversation. Yet long ago I realized that Jesus Christ is life, not secular politics, and that we Christians, as salt of the earth, are the preservative of this world. It is a step down for me to discuss these secular political topics, I know. And believe me, it bores me to tears. Just like discussing Islam or Nazis or Commies bores me to tears. Its not interesting to me, any more than studying the contents of an unflushed toilet is interesting to me. However, every conversation has its hour, so I spoke up. At this point, I don't think I have much more to add to any of this. I just wanted to make a few posts on the subject, especially for any young people who might be perusing these boards, either today or in the future. Christians should not be shocked or taken off guard when the things that are most likely about to happen, happen. But we should continue to trust in God, in His word, for our own sake, and for the world's.

Oh, and I almost forgot---for God's sake too! Christians who are learning about Him and trusting in Him, by so doing, are glorifying Him. God should get what He wants---obedient, faithful, children who love Him. Children who can grow up.

Re the text I bolded above: your input is extremely valuable. We have to VOTE on everything, every day. It's all used for training the soul, so yes politics are important. How do you vote on the issues, before God? How do you take a shower.. before God?

The 'before God' clause makes the otherwise-highest secular questions, higher still; and the lower stuff, high too, Isaiah 54:1, 55:8-9, Eph 1:15-23, etc.

Mind you, I have to remind myself of those verses every day, just to get through the day. God doesn't denigrate what's lower than Him.

Yes. Every minute of every hour of the day is a cold turkey choice between time and eternity.

Its rough.
