The Path to Total Dictatorship

QUOTE – Senator William Jenner

On February 23, 1954, U.S. Senator William Jenner stated:

Today the path to total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people …

Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating WITHIN our government and political system, ANOTHER body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side …

All the strange developments in foreign policy agreements may be traced to this group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure. We must consider our danger not only in the terms of the treaties or agreements which have been completed, but in terms of those still in the pipelines, or already in effect, but still invisible to Congress or to the people …

This political action group has its own local political support organizations, its own pressure groups, its own vested interests, its foothold within our government, and its own propaganda apparatus …

Someone, somewhere, conceived the brilliant strategy of revolution by the assembly line. The pattern for total revolution was divided into separate parts, each of them as innocent, safe, and familiar-looking as possible. The men who made the blueprints know exactly WHAT the final product is to be. They have planned the final assembly years ahead.

In the Senate, Jenner was a strident opponent of General George Marshall, who was appointed Secretary of Defense in 1950. During the confirmation debate, Jenner and McCarthy was part of a group of militantly anti-communist Republican Senators that attacked Marshall.

Jenner “delivered a shrill, hour-long attack on the nominee” in which he also disparaged President Harry S. Truman and Secretary of State Dean AchesonExemplifying McCarthist rhetoric,  Jenner accused the Truman administration of “bloody tracks of treason” and called Marshall “a living lie” who was “joining hands once more with this criminal crowd of traitors and Communist appeasers … under the direction of Mr. Truman and Mr. Acheson.”

Jenner also “denounced and blamed Marshall for the Pearl Harbor defeat and for his role in helping FDR ‘trick America into a war,’ the extension of lend-lease to the Communist Soviet Union, the ‘selling out’ of Eastern Europe at Yalta, the loss of China, and the inclusion of an offer of aid to the Soviet Union under the Marshall Plan.” When Marshall was informed of Jenner’s speech, the former general replied: “Jenner? Jenner? I do not believe I know the man.”

In 1951, after President Truman dismissed General Douglas MacArthur for insubordination, Jenner gave a speech on the floor of the Senate in which he said: “I charge that this country today is in the hands of a secret inner coterie, which is directed by agents of the Soviet Government. Our only choice is to impeach President Truman and find out who is the secret invisible government.”
