Learn from our European Friends

I came across another warning for our democracy, this one from one of our European friends. This “15-Point Guide to Surviving Authoritarianism” was originally posted on 24 January 2017, very early in the Trump administration, as part of a tweet by Polish journalist and activist Martin Mycielski (@mycielski). In that tweet this 15-point guide was... Continue Reading →

SeThreads

I've been following @SethAbramson's Trump-Russia threads on twitter. They appear to be well-sourced and somewhat "ahead" of the major news organizations. I found myself wishing there was a compendium of links to the first tweet in each of his Trump-Russia threads with brief descriptions so that I could more easily find threads of interest. While...

Oaths Forsaken

I’ve been thinking a lot about the Constitution and the oaths to preserve, support, protect, and defend it that those serving in government swear when taking office. Many of those serving have forsaken their oaths. I just finished a new webpage, the first in a series on "Oaths Forsaken" that examine the First Amendment rights... Continue Reading →

Trump is NOT above the law though he certainly acts like it. He swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, yet ignores or actively attacks it.... Continue Reading →

Two more scared chicks

Samantha Bee: "What is the recipe for successfully resisting an autocracy?" Masha Gessen: "I had to flee my country ... efforts to resist that I know of failed." SB: "Is there anything I personally can do to resist?" MG: "...continue panicking...be the hysteric in the room...keep saying this is not normal." Full Frontal is Scared:... Continue Reading →

The Sky is falling … it’s time to panic!

This blog is a delayed response to 8 November 2016, when for reasons unfathomable, the nation elected an autocrat wannabe. On 20 January 2017, Donald Trump swore to "faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States" and to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." He also neglected to fully... Continue Reading →
