Trump’s SS (Schutzstaffel) Brigade

The Nazi SS was founded in 1925 as Adolf Hitler’s personal bodyguard . In 1929 the sadistic chicken farmer, Heinrich Himmler, took over this paramilitary organization, greatly expanding it as one of Nazi Germany’s most feared factions whose activities included intelligence work and operating the many Nazi death camps. In other words it represented the fist of Hitler for quelling any potential opposition, which of course would be declared enemies of the state.

It would appear that Attorney General Bill Barr has been reading up lately on the ways of the SS — organizational and operational wise. It seems that old Billy boy has been busy gathering up policing parts of numerous federal agencies, and likely vetting them on their loyalty to President Trump.

A few days ago in Washington DC Barr took his little unmarked army out for a practice run, having it clear the street where peaceful protesters were gathered so that the Donald could get his photo op awkwardly holding a Bible in front of a historic church.

Apparently the real American military found the use of this rival army a threat to the nation, as some of Trump’s former administration generals finally unloaded on Trump as a Nazi type threat to American democracy.

General James “mad dog” Mattis lead off the attack on the president. Breaking his silence, Mattis unleashed an extraordinary broadside, denouncing Trump for dividing the nation, and accusing him of ordering the U.S. military to violate the constitutional rights of American citizens.

James Mattis, besides being a highly respected military commander, is also a superbly educated man well versed in historical turning points. No doubt he saw Barr’s SS style troopers as a rising threat to America’s freedom, so much so, that he could no long hold back criticism of the Trump administration.

There has been some whispers that if President Adolf Trump is defeated in November he will refuse to leave office. Perhaps Barr’s building the army that intends to back such a Trumpian stance.
