When one is repeatedly lied to, it creates a state of paranoia.

So I suppose I am paranoid, but this looks suspicions. Look at what Hitler did in preparation for war and as part of gaining total control:

As head of state, Hitler became Supreme Commander of the armed forces. The traditional loyalty oath of servicemen was altered to affirm loyalty to Hitler personally, rather than to the office of supreme commander or to the state. On 19 August, the merger of the presidency with the chancellorship was approved by a plebiscite with support of 90% of the electorate.

In early 1938 Hitler used political blackmail to force his War Minister, Field Marshal Werner von Blomberg, to resign when a police dossier was discovered showing that Blomberg's new wife had a record for prostitution. Hitler similarly ridded himself of army commander Colonel-General Werner von Fritsch after the Schutzstaffel (SS) produced allegations that he had taken part in a homosexual relationship. Both men had already fallen into disfavour after they had objected to Hitler's demand that they have the Wehrmacht ready to go to war as early as 1938. Hitler used these incidents, known as the Blomberg–Fritsch Affair, to consolidate his hold over the military. He assumed Blomberg's title of Commander-in-Chief, thus taking personal command of the armed forces. He replaced the Ministry of War with the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (High Command of the Armed Forces, or OKW), headed by General Wilhelm Keitel. On the same day, sixteen generals were stripped of their commands and 44 more were transferred; all were suspected of not having been sufficiently pro-Nazi. By early February 1938, twelve more generals had been removed.

Our own Hitler, Barrack Obama, seems to have taken lessons from history, or maybe this is just what happens when sociopaths and psychopaths gain high office.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
