Storm Troopers banned!

Good news today, 1932 April 13th. Bruening’s government has banned Hitler’s Brown Shirts! The SA offices are being raided, gun hoards confiscated and the doors padlocked. I am unsure why Hitler did not resist this move, but sources tell me the Nazis are biding their time because Hitler has decided this is not the moment to foment all out war against the government. The idea for the Nazis is to lay low for some months and see what develops on the political front.  Hitler is determined to become leader, but not via another Munich-like putsch. The right is screaming bloody murder. The sadist Roehm wants to resist but Hitler days no. Nazi propaganda leader Goebbels is said to be in a deep depression. I believe this current  political chess match hinges on Hitler’s belief that old man Hindenburg will not live much longer or will become incapacitated. Hitler may be right. I still don’t see how Hitler fits into the picture other than being an election loser. In any case, we’ll see if the ban on the Brown Shirts has any effect upon the fighting in the streets. I do know this household is very happy. Ada and I celebrated tonight at the Excelsior with some fine cherry schnaps.
