Gearing Up for an Anti-Fascist Push

Rapid Reference --

Shocking scene of Erdogan body guards beating U.S. protestors

The Washington Post's  editorial pages today are full of articles telling of shocking physical assaults of one kind and another by goonish individuals against others -- from protestors to a head of state.

Thankfully, there has been "push-back" of the non-physical kind against such strong-arm tactics.
But is America facing a new fascist tolerance?  That is, are we seeing a creeping acceptance of the kinds of actions common in such countries as Turkey and Saudi Arabia, where protest is not tolerated?

The link below leads to an article about a book which details anti-fascist efforts in twentieth century America.  The book appears to be most useful, and so says the review.

An effort which is appropriate to our times to oppose fascism is surely in order now.

N. B.  While Patriot in Exigency is not afraid of the term "socialism," it is believed that a just economy can be built in the U.S. without state-socialism.

Protestor Convicted of Laughing

I think the headline above is fair.  It is also shocking.

As the report shows, the individual was convicted of an offense for merely laughing at the Sessions confirmation hearing.  According to the report it was law enforcement who paraded the otherwise peaceful lady out of the room.

Also, the increase in laws attempting to penalize protesting is alarming.  While seeming to protect public safety, many of these laws are reportedly aimed at squelching leftist protest.  This at a time when protesting the outrages of the government is a mark of sanity.

Just Out Today: Olbermann Report via You Tube on Reports of the Existence of a Grand Jury Inquiry Into Trump-Russia Ties

Published today on You Tube --

Olbermann's report references reports from one Claude Taylor, an Obama administration official, that there may be a grand jury or two being impaneled to deal with allegations of illegalities involving the Trump campaign and Russia.  While details are sketchy, Olbermann's report is clear enough.

A must-see video.

Communications Between White House and Pentagon Called into Question

Rapid Reference --

If this matter does not represent an internal menace to the security of the U.S. republic, I'm not sure what would.  If this difficulty gets corrected, that is one thing.  But why has this level of incompetence been reached in the first place?

Will George W. Bush Help Save the Republic?

Shaming the Military Chief of the U.S.   

Evidently, sometimes a person must simply reach the age of 70 before having a truly consequential impact.  This blog post may be the first time I have ever been able to write something positive about "W."

So, for the record:  I like George W. Bush's comments on racism.

How Republicans Stole the Election of 2016

And How They Plan to Steal the 2018 Mid-terms

Here is video of Greg Palast's talk on the Stolen Election of 2016 webcast live last evening.  I had the privilege of watching the live event.  Intermingled with requests to support his work, the webcast was a valuable re-telling and up-dating of the events surrounding the stealing of Election 2016 by mostly Republican operatives in some thirty states.

Particularly valuable was information about how they plan to pull the same stunts -- and more -- for the 2018 mid-terms, starting now.

A must-see.

Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Perhaps it is too soon to declare a light at the end of the tunnel which has been our national nightmare lasting now for almost two years.

But even a cursory review today of pertinent articles from major news sources reveals a growing chorus of officials willing to deal with the cancer.  The article linked to here tells more.

God bless America, and may God preserve her government of, by, and for the people.
