To be fair, Jefferson basically said that the occasional revolution is necessary. I would not disagree.

The main difference between today and any time in the past is that the ultra rich are free to move all of their resources (and factories, and taxable income) to other countries with impunity. Where they did have to worry about a good revolution in the past- they are now free to vacation on their private island while the peasants kill themselves.

Where in the past the rich in England would march with their soldiers, that is no longer the case. Now you have the cowards ensuring that it is not their family who will suffer.

As I said-  do support capitalism. I do believe that it has been by far the best system, and that it did wonders for the average person (yes, while it enriched the elite.) The recent difference seems to be the level of greed, and the ability for them to be free of consequences (see recent economic melt-down's caused by them.)

I don't know if revolution is necessary- but it is not a tool that should be ever be placed on a shelf out of reach...The only thing about a good revolution is that it is bloody, and that the outcome cannot always be predicted (nor is the most desirable outcome always guaranteed.)

How many times has the repair of capitalism been tried? amerikkka's limp wristed left always wants to "save capitalism". Capitalism in all arenas is the source of the problems in the world. Is it in your interest to retain this obsolete system of exploitation and injustice, or is it in the oligarch's interest?

Left is the New Right, or Why Marx Matters

The American obsession with electoral politics is odd in that ‘the people’ have so little say in electoral outcomes and that the outcomes only dance around the edges of most people’s lives. It isn’t so much that the actions of elected leaders are inconsequential as that other factors— economic, historical, structural and institutional, do more to determine ‘politics.’ To use an agrarian metaphor, it’s as if the miller was put forward as determining the harvest.

The American left has had an outsider role in this politics from the inception of the nation as a capitalist oligarchy to the improbable cobbling together of the idea that popular democracy can exist alongside concentrated wealth. If the powers that be wanted popular democracy, they could stop impeding its creation. The ‘first mover’ advantage, that once gained, power is used to close the door behind it, has be understood for centuries in the realms of commerce and politics.

As was probably the intent, the 2016 presidential outcome was used by the more persistent powers to divide the American left. The neoliberal left moved to a reflexive nationalism tied through class interests to state-corporatism in defense of the realm. Carnival barker Trump, an American political archetype for at least two centuries, was portrayed as a traitor to capitalist democracy— from the left. Emptied of analytical content, left affiliation was made a ‘brand.’

In more constructive terms, Bernie Sanders reached into red state territory to facilitate a class-based left political response to the failures of capitalism by promoting social welfare programs with historical precedent in the New Deal. Tied to an analytically sophisticated effort to shift power down and across political and economic hierarchies, something akin to popular democracy is in the process of confronting its long-mythologized ghost.

Graph: It is hardly incidental that as wealth has been concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, its power to affect political outcomes has been codified through official determinations like Citizens United. While the domination of politics by concentrated wealth may seem new, it ties to the conception of the U.S. as a capitalist oligarchy where rich, white, slavers determined political outcomes. The Senate, the U.S. ‘House of Lords,’ wasn’t popularly elected until the twentieth century. Source: inequality.org.

Part of the challenge of addressing this politics comes through dubious parsing of ‘the political’ from its objects. If an agent of the government tells people when to wake, what to wear, what they can and can’t say and what to spend their time doing, that is authoritarian. When an employer determines these, it is considered ‘free choice.’ In the neoliberal frame, economics is only political to the extent that elected leaders promote specific economic policies.

Even with the realization of late that money determines political outcomes, the distribution of income and wealth is considered economics while the use that these are put to in the political arena is considered politics. The unvirtuous circle of capitalism, where concentrated income and wealth are used to affect political outcomes so as to increase concentrated income and wealth, ties economics to politics through the incompatibility of capitalism with democracy.

Modern electoral politics replaces this relationship of economics to politics with color-coded branding— red or blue, where ‘our guy’ is what is good and true about America. The other party exists to pin ‘our guy’ into a corner that prevents him / her from acting on this goodness. Barack Obama was prevented from enacting his ‘true’ progressive agenda by Republican obstructionists. Donald Trump is being persecuted by deep-state, snowflake, socialists.

Left unaddressed and largely unconsidered has been the persistence of class relations. The rich continue to get richer, the rest of us, not so much. For all of the claims of political dysfunction, when it comes to bailouts and tax cuts, wars and weaponry and policing and surveillance, these opposition parties can be counted on to come together to overcome their differences. Likewise, when it comes to the public interest, partisan differences are put forward to explain why nothing is possible.

Graph: as illustrated above, in recent decades the greatest gains in the relative wealth of the rich came during the terms of liberal Democrats Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Lest this seem— or be framed as, incidental, the liberal Democrat’s support for the mechanism of this enrichment, Wall Street, explains the relationship. In economic terms, Democrats have been the party of the radical right— financialized, neoliberal capitalism, since the inception of neoliberalism in the 1970s. Source: inequality.org.

The unitary direction of this government response in favor of the rich may seem accidental, a byproduct of ‘our system’ of governance. In fact, the defining political ideology of the last half-century has been neoliberalism, defined here as imperialist, state-corporatism, controlled by oligarchs. And contrary to assertions that neoliberalism is a figment of the imagination of the left, its basic tenets were codified in the late 1980s under the term ‘Washington Consensus.’

What the Washington Consensus lays out is the support role that government plays for capitalism. Its tenets are short and highly readable. They provide a blueprint that ties Democratic to Republican political programs since the 1980s. They also tie neoliberalism to the Marxist / Leninist conception of the capitalist state as existing to promote the interests of connected capitalists. Left out, no doubt by accident (not), was / is a theory of class struggle.

When Donald Trump passed tax cuts that disproportionately benefited the rich and corporations, this was the Washington Consensus. When Barack Obama put ‘market mechanisms’ into Obamacare and promoted the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), this was the Washington Consensus. When Bill Clinton tried to privatize Social Security, this was the Washington Consensus. The alleged ‘opposition parties’ have been working together from a single blueprint for governance for four decades.

The intended beneficiary of this unified effort is ‘capitalism,’ conceived as multinational corporations operating with state support to promote a narrowly conceived national interest. An ISDS (Investor-State Dispute Settlement) clause was included in NAFTA when Bill Clinton promoted and signed it. An even more intrusive ISDS clause was included in the TPP when Barack Obama promoted it. The intent of these ISDS clauses is to give the prerogative of governance (sovereign power) to corporations.

It is no secret in Washington and outside of it that multinational corporations pay few, if any, taxes. The logic of this is two sided. On the one side, the neoliberal / Washington Consensus premise is that corporations can put the money to better use than government. The other is that the role of government is to support capitalism, not to constrain it. Barack Obama’s consequence-free bailouts of Wall Street, often at the expense of ordinary citizens, possessed an internal logic when considered through this frame.

An historical analog can be found in the relationship of the East India Company to the British empire. The East India Company drew financial, tactical and military support from the British monarchy as its global reach made it a key institution of imperial expansion. Its economic ties gave it a depth and breadth of reach that military occupation alone couldn’t achieve. Centuries later, Mr. Obama made this point when he argued that the TPP was crucial to ‘countering China.’

The rise of neoliberalism in the 1970s was intended to address the alleged failures of the New Deal. By the late 1980s, this new-old ideology had been codified as the Washington Consensus. Its proponents amongst national Democrats morphed into the New Democrats / DLC just as the Soviet Union was coming unwound. The twin ‘failures’ of the New Deal and communism led to the revival of dogmatic capitalism that saw the state as an appendage of capitalist institutions. Bill Clinton was more likely than not sincere when he declared that ‘the era of big government is over.’

The conflation of Democrats with ‘the left’ that first emerged to counter the New Deal in the 1930s, persisted through the 1990s and the 2000s because it was useful to both political parties. Republicans were the party of business while Democrats claimed to be the party of the people. While the New Deal was in place and from a liberal perspective, the Democrats did support a limited conception of the public interest domestically. However, by the time that Bill Clinton entered office, the public interest had been redefined to mean corporate interests.

This tension can be seen more clearly in the fight over NAFTA, which Republicans had been unable to pass before Mr. Clinton entered office. Mr. Clinton was able to use his liberal bona fides— and the fact that he wasn’t a Republican, to bring over just enough Democrats in congress to get NAFTA passed. He went on to divide bourgeois Democrats from the broader Democratic constituency through the use of race and class dog whistles. In this sense, he presaged Donald Trump. The net effect was to successfully divide the Democrat’s constituency by class.

Before Bill Clinton, the anti-NAFTA fight had a clear class component. Organized labor had lined up against the free-trade agenda that was being promoted by Reaganite Republicans. Through his rhetoric of ‘fair’ capitalism and a ‘level playing field,’ Mr. Clinton gave a liberal patina to an utterly retrograde, pre-Great Depression, form of capitalism. With no apparent irony, the Washington Consensus applied a Marxist / Leninist conception of the capitalist state without any pretense of it mitigating capitalist excess.

The clutter of party politics creates differences where there are none, or where they are different than as posed. Prior to being elected president, Barack Obama used the frame of the Washington Consensus to give an ideologically coherent explanation of why he wanted to cut Social Security and Medicare. It is one with the Republican explanation. It ties to his inclusion of neoliberal ‘market mechanisms’ in Obamacare. And it ties to his pivot to cut public expenditures—a.k.a. ‘austerity,’ by early 2010. And it ties to his support for the TPP.

As with Bill Clinton before him, Mr. Obama had a clear ideological predisposition that was at odds with how liberals and his supporters perceived and / or explained them. The historically based conflation of Democrats with ‘the left’ was a misrepresentation of the ideological drivers of the New Democrat’s policies. In significant ways, Messrs. Clinton and Obama were ideologically to the right of their Republican colleagues. And they governed like this was the case.

The invisibility of this shared ideology to most Democrats and liberals came through general ignorance of the genesis and tenets of the Washington Consensus, its relationship to neoliberalism, and the closed nature of Washington political culture. In a Gramscian sense, it reflects the belief system of ruling oligarchs, an ideology based on the interests of the rich submitted from above. The historical precedent was the use of American foreign policy to promote the business interests of connected industrialists and the corporations they controlled.

Why any of this matters is that capitalism has been tried and its consequences are becoming increasingly untenable. Environmental ills appear intractable, capitalist political economy is being held together with increasingly desperate measures, and its human toll can be measured in foreign genocides and domestic deaths of despair. Given the nature of neoliberal recessions, the U.S. is but one recession away from wholesale economic and political rebellion. And that recession is on the way. The value of left analysis is that it opens the range of political possibilities.

Former White House budget director and the father of “Reaganomics” warns:
“Read this book before the 2020 election!”

America is at grave risk. Learn why and how to protect yourself NOW by claiming your FREE copy of this controversial new book below!

Dear Friend,

On November 8, 2016, I cast my vote for Donald Trump for President of the United States.

I wanted “The Great Disruptor.”

I wanted the swamp drained.

But, above all, I wanted America to truly become great again.

It didn’t happen.

None of it.

Instead, we’re in a far worse… far more dangerous spot than we were just two years ago.

One where the Welfare State and the Warfare State threaten to destroy our economy… leaving ordinary Americans crippled in the wreckage.

One where our national debt is approaching an astounding $23 trillion… with no end in sight.

One where border wars… trade wars… and Twitter wars have stolen our focus from a ticking time bomb in the stock market.

And one where the Deep State has boldly emerged from out of the shadows to steal our democracy right from under us.

Your assets… your savings… your retirement… everything you’ve worked so truly hard for…

It could ALL be at risk.

That’s why, with the release of my new book, I’m sounding the alarm for every citizen who’ll listen.

And I’d like to send you a FREE copy (a $26.99 value) today.

Because it’s critical that you learn the truth as quickly as possible to protect your wealth, your freedoms, and your future.

Donald Trump, through his own catastrophic mistakes, as well as the many forces working against him, will NOT be able to stop what’s coming.

He won’t be able to save you.

You can only do it yourself.

But I’d like to help.
My name is David Stockman
 and I still believe America can
be great again

When I first went to Washington in 1970, I took on the role of a public servant for the first time.

I did so with a firm belief in America and a desire to make us truly great.

I was just 24 years old at the time…

Just a decade later, I’d gone from being a junior congressman from Michigan…

To being the White House Budget Director and the “Father of Reaganomics.”

Here’s a picture of me next to President Reagan early in his first term…

Like all young men who get close to the seat of power, I thought we were going to change the world.

You see, I was part of a new wave in the Republican Party.

We believed (and still believe) in sound money, low taxes, small government, and unleashing free enterprise for the benefit of all.

We wanted to TRULY make America great…

To become a symbol of prosperity and freedom for all the world to see.

President Reagan and I didn’t accomplish everything we wanted to during our time in the White House.

But we did some very good things.

We lowered taxes.

We stimulated an economic boom.

We forged new peaceful alliances with former enemies.

But the same forces that are working against President Trump today were around even back during the Reagan administration.

I’m talking about “The Deep State.”

The Deep State isn’t any one person or group…

It’s an elitist ideology that “they” know what’s best for the rest of us…

That “we the people” can’t be trusted with democracy…

That we must be controlled.

And, thanks to many of his own blunders, Donald Trump has perhaps unknowingly become the Deep State’s biggest weapon.

And I believe that’s left YOU and nearly every single American in grave danger.
Your money… your
freedom… and your entire future are at terrible risk

Thanks to Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, Obama, and now Trump, the arms of the Deep State have taken over Washington.

Endless wars… endless bailouts for billionaires… endless corruption at every level of government… and a $22 trillion debt that’s growing faster than ever.

This is the swamp…

Thick, black, murky, and completely undrainable.

Believe me, I’ve tried to fight this war against the Deep State from the inside.

I’ve tried it from my seat in Congress, as President Reagan’s budget director… even during my time as a fund manager on Wall Street.

And I’ve tried to warn people on my many appearances in the mainstream media…

But it hasn’t worked.

I can’t reach everyone I want and NEED to with a five-minute spot on the cable networks.

It’s just not enough of a platform to equip you with everything you’ll need to know to protect yourself.

And there’s so much corruption in our government that I just don’t trust they’ll do the right thing to help citizens like you, either.

Which is why I’ve decided to take a different approach.

I’m not going to wait for these “gatekeepers” any longer.

Because I don’t need them.

And neither do you.

That’s why I’m getting the word out myself.

So, if you truly want to discover the REAL dangers I believe we face as a nation…

I’d like to send you a FREE copy of my brand-new book:
Peak Trump:
The Undrainable Swamp and the Fantasy of MAGA

I never wanted to have to write this book.

I wanted Donald Trump to be the “Great Disruptor” our nation needs to truly save its future.

I wanted him to weed out the lifetime politicians who were long ago bought and paid for by special interests and corporations.

I wanted him to get us out of pointless, expensive wars and conflicts abroad.

I wanted him to instill some financial sanity by letting the stock market begin its natural reset and by cutting our massive national debt.

But, thanks to the actions of the Deep State… and to Trump’s own spectacular mistakes…

…the situation has become FAR worse for your money, your freedom, and your future.

And that’s why I had no choice but to sit down and write my new book, Peak Trump: The Undrainable Swamp and The Fantasy of MAGA.

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering…

What IS “Peak Trump?”

That’s what I call the era in which we’re actually living in right now.

One where the stock market has rallied once again up to its previous record highs…

But where the same false sense of security threatens to leave many Americans in harm’s way when this bubble finally bursts.

And, by loudly taking credit for this, the longest bull market in history, Trump has handcuffed his fate to Wall Street.

Take September 20, 2018, for instance.

That day, the S&P 500’s giant bubble topped out at 2,941.

I can’t say for certain, but that day MAY have been the very definition of “Peak Trump.”

Because, as I write this, despite a few rallies, it’s never been able to hit those heights again.

There may still be some small increases on the horizon… which Trump will tweet about and take credit for instantly…

But you should expect to see FAR more significant drops in the market in the coming months.

Some of those drops will come completely out of the blue, too.

Which is why it’s so important that you prepare yourself for them NOW.

Trump has embraced the largest financial bubble in history.

Instead of “clearing the deck” and letting it burst so that our economy could reset with sensible spending and growth…

We’re now left with a looming financial crisis that could make the Great Depression look like a day at the beach.

Because thanks to Trump’s tax cuts…
Trillions of dollars of
NEW DEBT are about to
flood into America!

When the President was celebrating his big-time tax cuts for the wealthy last year, I was left shaking my head.

Without ALL that tax revenue coming in, WHERE is the money to pay for basic government services going to come from?

The national debt jumped $782 billion on Trump’s watch in fiscal year 2018.

That’s $116 billion more than the year before.

And that huge increase can be traced directly back to those tax cuts.

The shortfall in revenue, including corporate tax receipts plunging $92 billion year-on-year, have left the U.S. scrambling for cash.

But the richest of Americans (many of them members of the Deep State) will pay LESS taxes…

While the government is expected to borrow over $1 trillion from the Treasury for the SECOND year in a row in order to make up for those tax shortfalls.

What happens next is the truly terrifying part.

If the government can’t pay its bills...

And the President continues to keep this financial bubble inflated with more tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy…

Your assets… your savings… your retirement… everything you’ve worked your entire life to build…

Is ALL in grave danger.

No matter which side of the political aisle you fall on, ask yourself…

    Will you be “winning” if you’re not allowed to withdraw more than $40 a day from your OWN bank account?
    Does the idea of having money taken out of YOUR pension to keep the government afloat sound like a “great” America?
    And when this bull market finally DOES collapse under the weight of all this debt… will you even be able to afford to retire by the time you’re 80!?

Inside my new book, Peak Trump: The Undrainable Swamp and The Fantasy of MAGA, I reveal the truth about what I think has really happened to America since Donald Trump took office.

Not the insanely biased version the leftist mainstream media feeds you…

And not the rose-tinted view that Trump’s mouthpieces on Fox News spout off, either.

I’ve meticulously researched and analyzed the events of every single day of the Trump presidency.

Having spent my entire career inside the two deepest parts of the Deep State – Imperial Washington and Wall Street…

I’ve been able to unravel the truth about where America could be headed… and to identify steps YOU need to take in order to ensure you aren’t left behind.

I’ll tell you how to claim your FREE copy of the book in just a moment.

But first…
Here’s just some of what
I reveal inside Peak Trump…

Remember, I voted for the guy! I wanted him to succeed!

Mike "Mish" ShedlockMacroeconomic Analyst

I have absorbed a dozen of those previous books. Stockman's is my favorite because of his original research, the context he presents (starting with the economic depression of the 1930s), his former insider status, and his apparent political non-partisanship during the endeavor.
USA Today

I was very much impressed by his first book, The Great Deformation, and his new book is just as good. If you want to understand what is wrong with the US, you should definitely read both books.

Bernie Sanders’ father came to America at 17 years old as a refugee, hoping to escape widespread anti-Semitism and to find a better life. He had no money and knew almost no English. He didn’t have much of an education and no real skills. But he built a life for himself and his family through determination and hard work.

Millions of immigrant families in the United States today are doing the same thing. That is the story of Bernie’s family and that is the story of America.

Today we released our immigration policy plan — and it is the most progressive plan ever released by a presidential candidate.

Not only are we going to reverse ALL of Donald Trump’s harmful immigration policies on day one of Bernie’s presidency, but we will transform immigration into a humane, lawful process that protects families and respects human rights.

We are asking you today if you can lend your name to say that you support Bernie’s immigration plan, because every person who stands up in support will make clear that this is the kind of change needed to truly transform our country.

Add your name to say you support Bernie’s immigration plan to support refugees, asylum-seekers, and families who come to the United States in search of the American Dream.

Donald Trump is a racist, a xenophobe, and a demagogue. He has tried, as all demagogues do, to divide us by demonizing immigrants and blaming them for society’s problems. He has used hateful and disgusting rhetoric to try to dehumanize an entire group of people, and he has used the power of the federal government to mistreat and terrorize immigrants at the border and in our communities.

That ends when Bernie is president. As president, Bernie will:

    Use executive authority to reverse Trump’s harmful actions on immigration, including ensuring asylum seekers can make their claims in the United States, ending family detention and separation, reuniting families, reversing the Muslim ban and halting construction on Trump’s racist border wall.

    Place a moratorium on deportations and end ICE raids.

    Restore and expand DACA and use advance parole, parole in place, and hardship waivers to remove barriers to legal status and citizenship for as many undocumented immigrants as possible.

    Push Congress to enact a fair, swift, and inclusive path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people living in the United States.

    Restructure the bloated, dysfunctional Department of Homeland Security, break up ICE and CBP and return their core functions to their previous departments, and begin treating immigration outside the context of national security.

    Decriminalize and demilitarize the border, ensure migrants due process, and fully fund and staff independent immigration courts.

    Strengthen and protect immigrant labor rights, including for historically excluded and underregulated occupations such as farmworkers and domestic workers, ensure employers are held accountable for mistreating immigrant workers, and reform work visas.

    Renegotiate disastrous trade deals, develop a humane foreign policy, and lead the world in addressing climate change, including taking in those forced from their homes due to climate change.

    Ensure immigrants in the United States get the support and benefits they need, including healthcare and education, and streamline immigration and naturalization.

We must stand up for our values and accept refugees, asylum-seekers, and families who come to the United States in search of the American Dream. This is how America was built and it has made our country strong.

Say you support Bernie’s immigration plan — add your name now.

Thank you for all you do.

In solidarity,

Team Bernie

The cry of the mighty who are falling is growing louder. In the case of the USA it’s a combination of angry accusations based on a confused bluster of humanity in the White House whose phalanx of fools exists so deep within its own perception of itself its members cannot conceive of their leader being booed at a national sporting event. Then again, neither can certain conservative pundits who do not like the man in the White House but slobber their servitude to the building’s presence as some monument of integrity and honor. Honor in DC is a presumption I won’t ever make, not even among those who are not thieves. I have more respect for the dope slingers and their customers, the hookers and their johns, and the panhandlers who sleep in places most of us never knew existed, than I do for the politicians and their paymasters. At least the former do a day’s work and rarely misrepresent their intentions.

In other nations, the streets are consumed with protest against the failed leaders whose ill-gotten riches are failing to protect them from the wrath of those from whom they were stolen. In the grand imperial capital however, the masses are silent for reasons not apparent but all too clear. Too many gringos think they have something invested in that which steals their savings and their futures. They cheer the death of a villain from Iraq who never would have become the villain if they hadn’t encouraged the military invasion and occupation that created him. There is no triumph in a human death, but the bloodthirsty insist otherwise. Those whose conscience is tied to the structure they exist in accept this manipulation of truth and cheer the death of a man whose demise means much less than the media would like us to believe. If the story is even true, that is. Fake news is not a new thing. It used to be called propaganda and we were told only the enemy would stoop to such methods. Of course, anyone with a critical mind unattached to the dogma of their particular State understands that all governments depend on propaganda to keep their populace informed in a manner that serves the ruling interests. Illiteracy is better, but misinformed literacy works equally well. It even provides an illusion of an informed populace.

This is a nation who considers the lousy actor and corporate shill Ronald Reagan to be one of its greatest leaders—the great communicator they call him. He was nothing but a racist shill with a withered peanut for a brain that confused television and the big screen with reality. The fact that Donald Trump, whose years as an asshole boss on the shaming exercise they call reality TV made him a household name in too many households across the United States, was elected president should surprise no one. The fact that he is losing his grip on both the office and his sanity reminds me of a Caligula reprise without the wine and togas. The sycophants he surrounds himself with are too self-involved to realize that riding on his train is not going to be the ticket to their version of heaven whether it’s in the sky or their bank account. He’s gonna’ take a whole shitload of filthy fools who are going along with his con down with him. That is, unless the genuine fascists in his coterie start getting real serious and bring in their militias and fans in the military.

The spectacle known as politics in the United States has become more spectacular in an atrocious way these past few years. Once the impeachment show hits television, it is likely to become even more so. The histrionics from FOXNews and various MSNBC commentators are likely to make a certain amount of the procedure into a partisan debate about Trump, emphasizing that which makes them worship or abhor him. The key to the viewer is to keep the eyes on the prize—Donald Trump’s departure from the White House and an exodus of his fascist and corrupt co-conspirators. Likewise, remember that those who expose his lies and abuses are not heroes, just players on a stage that demands they testify either as penitents or because they will go to jail if they don’t. The real crimes are the ones no president ever gets impeached for.

The cynic in me questions whether the impeachment trial in the Senate will ever occur. The parameters of the inquiry are quite limited and reek of the imperial state—a state the Trumpists want for themselves, yet cannot seem to control their leader enough to make it their own. The idiotic and even stupid actions of Trump may do in that section of the capitalist class he claims to represent. The robber barons and their representatives in Congress and across the nation hitched their wagons to the Trump train and are now concerned he won’t be able to bluster and lie his way out of this mess he’s gotten them into. The fact that some of his most vocal supporters in Congress are dumber than a box of rocks does not help their cause. It seems a critical mass of stupidity may have been reached and the fact of Trump’s departure before January 2021 may be realized. If so, the sinking ship that is this nation will not be righted but the captain and crew will be those who brought us to the Trumpist catastrophe in the first place—the neocons and the neoliberals. The warmongers and Wall Street thieves whose destruction of even the façade of a democratic republic created the cradle that birthed Trumpism and made overt racism and misogyny a way to win the White House again. The brash arrogance of Trump will return to Manhattan and Florida. The polished arrogance that kills foreigners with a smile and not a leer will return to the White House. The ghost of Richard Nixon’s petty-minded impeachable self will be replaced with the ghost of Richard Nixon’s grand and imperial self and Kissinger can die happy. I’ll just be happy when he’s dead.

There is a wild card in this prophecy, however. It is the phenomenon represented by Bernie Sanders’ campaign. Although unlikely he will get past the numerous roadblocks and hastily constructed fences put up to keep candidates like him far from the seats of US power, there is the ever so slight possibility that his supporters’ (who truly believe he can save this trash heap of a republic) optimism will sweep him into power. This is when this writer refers the reader to Bertram Gross’s 1980s tract titled Friendly Fascism, wherein he describes in terms still relevant today how progressive candidates who talk seriously about redistributing the wealth downward instead of upward are blocked. If all else fails, he writes, the assassins will take up their positions, aim and shoot or poison or blow things up or well you get the picture. The monied classes like their money more than they like people, democracy, freedom and each other. That’s why so many of them will put up with Trump’s crassness and crudity. He puts more money in their pockets and makes it seem like the moral thing to do, as if there’s anything really moral about accumulating wealth in the first place.

Many liberal and progressive pundits and their readers look into the nation’s past for comparisons to today’s situation. Of course, they exist: the 1920s, the gilded age of robber barons, Richard Nixon’s final rise and fall. I suggest they look elsewhere if they want a more precise template that Trumpism fits into. That would be the Nazi rise to power in the 1930s. A quick look at that history reveals the manipulation of fears created by a defeat in war, economic insecurity and inequality, liberals unable and unwilling to accept that the nazis were not a normal electoral party, an electoral victory achieved without winning the majority of the votes and a ruthless verbal attack on the pre-existing bureaucratic establishment coinciding with a takeover of most bureaucratic functions by Nazi party functionaries. I can continue: a capitalist class at first uncertain and even opposed to Hitler and his party which eventually supported the party and its goals once they realized how much money they would make. It didn’t take them long to realize that fascism was a great friend of monopoly capital and that its military and police apparatus would dispel those pesky people who believed in democracy. If Trump is not removed, the process his apparatus has begun could achieve a fascism that would put Hitler’s to shame. Remember, you don’t have to be Hitler to be a fascist. As for the neocons and neoliberals, remember that one doesn’t need to be a fascist to be totalitarian.

Agent Orange lies to supporters about CNN broadcast

"During a rally in Mississippi, Trump claimed that the light on a CNN camera “went off’ while he was attacking the network and that meant he was being yanked from the air. But CNN said the camera’s light was never on ― it’s permanently off, even when taping ― and the event wasn’t being carried live in the first place.

[...]

The network also noted that it was at least the eighth time Trump lied about a light on one of the network’s cameras going off during a speech."

He is exposing his sick paranoia before one, and all. When the paranoid motherfucker launches a thermonuclear first strike you trump athletic supporters can chill out in a nuclear winter!
