The Title of “Commander in Chief”: Limited Window of Authority
America suffers from her own peculiar form of Führertum. In this “Führer System”, everything is said—and as much as possible is made—to depend upon the personal promises, policies, performances, and even proclivities of the individual occupying “the Office of the President”. Not withstanding his “Oath or Affirmation” of office and the very few powers and duties the Constitution quite explicitly delegates to him, this individual is presumed to hold in his own hands essentially all conceivable executive (and no little legislative and judicial) authority to affect political, economic, social, cultural, and even religious matters throughout this country (and ever increasingly throughout the entire world). In keeping with das Führerprinzip (“The Leader Principle”), Congress abjectly subordinates itself to the President as a mere rubber stamp for his administration’s program; and the judiciary almost never dares to interpose itself against the abusive exercises of his supposed “inherent executive authority”.
Thus, around the Presidency has grown up a veritable cult of office, coupled with a cult of personality of the particular individual who gains control of that office, that together undergird a Führerstaat the raw destructive power of which have caused Hitler to drool with delight. Especially, because unlike Hitler’s regime after 1933, America’s Führerstaat is politically well camouflaged by the complex charades of “” and “free elections”, carried to behind the facade of an ostensible “two”-party system which actually consists of but a single party with a pair of deceptive faces. Akin to Hitler’s régime Führerstaat employs massive machinery for dispensing propaganda and agitation through the sycophantic big media—the only missing element in this latter-day Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda being the identifiable central figure analogous to Dr. Joseph Goebbels. Worse yet, America’s Führerstaat is now fast a-building and deploying a national para-military police-state apparatus centered around the Department of Homeland Security—the capstone of this new Reichssicherheitshauptamt already complete with a public official analogous to Heinrich Himler.
