Donald Trump Says It’s No Big Deal When National Leaders Assassinate Political Dissidents

American Dictator Donald Trump

If there was any doubt left that Donald Trump is a fascist, that doubt was erased in all reasonable minds today.

Donald Trump, in an interview on national television, scoffed at the idea that there’s any problem with national leaders such as himself killing political dissidents.

An interviewer pointed out to Trump that “Putin’s a killer.”

This comment came in the context of the news today of the apparent poisoning by dictator Vladimir Putin of Russian dissident Vladimir Kara-Murza. Putin is one of Donald Trump’s key political patriots.

In response, Trump stated, “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country’s so innocent?”

For the record, in the United States, assassination is a federal crime. No one, not even the President of the United States, can legally order the assassination of any person.

Is our country so innocent? Yes, Mr. Trump, the United States is supposed to be innocent of the assassination of political dissidents.

Donald Trump doesn’t understand this. He seems to believe that the laws prohibiting the assassination of political opponents is naive. declared today that he has no intention of being restrained by the ban on assassination.

Watch out, America. The President of the United States just indicated that he has no problem with ordering agents of the U.S. government to murder people who publicly oppose his rule.

This is not a joke.

This is not some kind of unorthodox negotiating technique.

The President of the United States just endorsed the use of assassination to get rid of political opponents.

This is uncharted territory. We are in for some very dark times.

Donald Trump Announces Plan To Break The Law With Network of Secret Torture Prisons

Crazy Trump

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly promised that, if elected President, he would reinstate the use of torture against prisoners. Unlike his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush, who played coy about whether the US government was engaging in torture, Trump was explicit that he was advocating torture. “Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would. In a heartbeat. I would approve more than that!”

Many people thought that it was all just a lot of bluster. They assured us that, once Trump became President, his outrageous advocacy of torture would fade away, to be replaced by more reasonable policy discussions.

They were wrong. Donald Trump is now President, and yet, his zealous push to commit acts of torture continues.

Last night, in a nationally-televised interview, when Donald Trump was asked about torture, he declared, “Do I feel it works? Absolutely, I feel it works.”

This week, the Trump White House has been sending members of Congress a draft executive order that would create a network of secret torture prisons in violation of the Geneva Conventions.

Putting people in prison without due process is a violation of the Constitution.

Torture is in violation of the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. It is also violation of federal law.

Torture isn’t just distasteful. It is a crime.

The President of the United States is openly planning to commit a high crime. It’s an impeachable offense.

When is Congress going to stand up and do something about this?

The Republicans control Congress. They’re just going to sit down and let it happen.

The U.S. federal government has been transformed into a criminal gang.

Do Trump voters feel no shame about this?

Trump Nominee For Secretary Of Defense Says That Killing People Is Fun

James Mattis loose cannon

Last night, Donald Trump announced his choice to become Secretary of Defense, the most powerful civilian adviser to the President of the United States on issues of war and peace: Retired general James Mattis.

In an normal time, we would be talking about the problems of giving a military professional the power to exercise oversight of the military. It’s like designating a fox to guard a henhouse.

These are not normal times, Donald Trump is not a normal President-Elect, and James Mattis is a highly abnormal person.

James Mattis loose cannon

James Mattis has said, in public, without a hint of shame, that he takes feels a sense of joy about going to war, that he likes killing people, that he thinks violence is the greatest form of entertainment he can think of.

Mattis has become infamous for saying, “Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people.”

Mattis hasn’t just said this kind of thing on a single occasion, though, in a temporary outburst that doesn’t represent his true feelings. He has talked about his enjoyment and obsession with bloodshed over and over again.

“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet,” Mattis said.

“There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed. It’s really great,” Mattis said.

“There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim. It’s really a hell of a lot of fun,” Mattis said.

These statements, and the bloodthirsty attitudes behind them, have real consequences, as when Mattis ordered the bombing of a wedding in 2004, killing men, women and children.

Was that fun for Mattis? Was it really great? Was it a hell of a hoot?

War should always be the absolute last resort. It should be the goal of every President of the United States, and every Secretary of Defense, to avoid war whenever possible.

James Mattis has declared that he will have the opposite attitude if he is confirmed as Secretary of Defense by the United States Senate. James Mattis will seek out war. He will try to launch America into war at the slightest excuse. His goal will be to start fights whenever possible

In doing so, James Mattis will use American soldiers in the way that little boys use toy soldiers. For him, it will be fun.

For the rest of us, there will be blood and death.

Trump Supporters Threaten To Do To American Muslims What Hitler Did To German Jews

Letter to California Mosques

Supporters of Donald Trump complain that it’s just not polite to compare Trump to Adolf Hitler. They say that such comparisons should be placed beyond the limits of acceptable political discussion.

I agree. It should be beyond the limits of political to comment that the President Elect has some unsettling similarities to the Nazi Fuhrer. Unfortunately, the actions of Donald Trump and his fanatic supporters have made it not only reasonable, but necessary for Americans to talk about whether Trump is leading toward a destination like the German Third Reich.

Why are people comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler? Part of it is the way that members of pro-Trump groups like the National Policy Institute, while meeting in a federal building in Washington D.C., erupt into shouts of “Hail Trump! Sieg Heil!” while raising their arms into stiff Nazi salutes.

Alt Right Nazis

People compare Trump to Hitler because of Nazi actions like the letters sent to mosques across California, declaring:

“To the children of Satan, you Muslims are a vile and filthy people. Your mothers are whores and your fathers are dogs. You are evil. You worship the devil. But your day of reckoning has arrived.

There’s a new sheriff in town – President Donald Trump. He’s going to cleanse America and make it shine again. And he’s going to start with you Muslims. He’s going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews. You Muslims would be wise to pack your bags and get out of Dodge.

This is a great time for patriotic Americans. Love live President Trump and God bless the USA.”

Letter to California Mosques

The irony is that Trump voters complain that the mere mention of the similarities between Trump and Hitler should be forbidden, but then turn around and whine about “political correctness” when people ask them to please stop calling fellow Americans things like “nigger”, “camel jockey”, or “wetback”.

It is time for Americans to speak frankly – about the fascist threat being created, not just by Donald Trump and his white supremacist aides in the White House, but by rank and file Trump voters as well.

Have Trump Supporters Turned To Terrorism?

Peaceful anti-trump protest

Traditionally, Thanksgiving weekend is a time of peace, but Donald Trump’s political ascent has overturned all manner of American traditions. Now, it appears that Trump supporters in the Philadelphia area may have decided that the Thanksgiving should become a time for violent punishment of political dissent.

When Jim Alden, a 62 year-old gay Philadelphia man, picked up and opened a package left on his front stoop, the package exploded, causing injuries to his face, chest, and arm.

Although there had been speculation that the explosion may have been caused accidentally by a faulty inhaler, this possibility has bow been ruled out, as police are now referring to a device designed to explode.

In other words, the package was a bomb.

Why would anyone want to hurt Mr. Alden? By all accounts, he was a friendly and polite man with many friends and no known enemies. However, he also did not make any efforts to conceal his strong opposition to the election of Donald Trump.

The only thing that appears to have made Jim Alden a target for attack was a rainbow-colored sign he placed in his window, featuring the anti-Trump slogan “Love Trumps Hate”.

As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump spent months and months whipping his supporters up into a violent rage. Trump encouraged his fans to physically attack anti-Trump protesters, to the point where the victims would have to be carried away on medical stretchers. Trump even promised to pay the legal fees of any one of his supporters who was arrested for attacking one of his political opponents.

If indeed the bomb attack against Jim Alden was motivated by his display of an anti-Trump sign, then it’s an act of terrorism. That would mark a dangerous new step in the radicalization of Trump supporters.
