|Will Trump's America Be a Fascist State?|
The GOP will not stop the dismantling of our liberal democracy. While there will be a couple of vocal, Cold-War holdouts, and idle talk of investigations, it won't be enough to make a dent in the hero worship that a growing number of Republicans have reserved for Putin -- the White Russian rescuer on horseback. After all, he helped them get back into power, which is all the GOP really cares about.
As for Democrats, some will whine while others normalize Trump's nihilist Cabinet picks as being . . . well, not their cup of tea, but nothing worth causing any "unpleasantness" over.
And that brings me to President Barack Obama. His election was one of the proudest moments of my life. His courage and stoicism in the face of the vile treatment he received from members of the GOP inspired me to seek out my higher self. But despite the fact that Obama saved the economy from collapse, gave millions of people healthcare, reduced unemployment to its lowest level in decades, none of that will count for posterity. The Obama legacy will be built on a decision he makes in the next 48 hours.
Will he go before the American public and reveal the truth? In an article entitled: Treasonous Mitch McConnell Refused To Oppose Russia Election Meddling For Trump, the site Politicus laid out the shocking evidence of the Senate Majority Leader's refusal to participate in a bilateral statement acknowledging Russian interference in the election. And yet, the evidence is irrefutable that the Kremlin dumped embarrassing Democratic Committee emails onto the media, but held back the Republican National Committee's private correspondence. So Trump won the electoral college by 80.000 votes, despite Clinton's 3 million vote lead. But what might the Kremlin be holding over Trump and his minions to ensure that they do the Russian's bidding.
As soon as the President finishes a speech that will go down in history next to Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, he will need to pick up the phone and fire FBI director James Comey for treason.
