Bannon and Trump Coup In the Making

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/01/opinions/bannon-trump-coup-opinion-ben-ghiat/index.html

Read this article of magnitude importance -- and weep.  This is just how Hitler took over Germany.  The naive voters who support Trump are oblivious to what he is doing and what they have wrought by giving him power. They are still cheering him on, just as the Germans did with Hitler in the 1930s.  Before the Germans knew what had happened to them, their country was under authoritarian rule with no dissent allowed.  

Wise observers of the Bannon takeover of America are speaking out, just as alarmed wise people did in the 1930s.  We all know what happened to the wise warners back then as the Hitler Blitzkrieg rolled over them, their country and many other European countries on their way to the terrible war and holocaust that followed.  Are we really going to have to follow that same horrific pattern all over again??????

Here we go, folks....the Bannon/Trump Blitzkrieg takeover of America has begun!  Today the Republicans changed the quorum rules in order to put forth their ill-fitted, lying candidates for top government positions. Bannon has stated his goal is to "destroy the state" and "bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today's establishment," and Trump has now put Bannon in the Decision Room with an unprecedented level of influence. At the same time, Trump dismissed from the Decision process two of the most important members necessary to give wise counsel. 

if you still think Trump is actually in control, here's what Bannon said of his so-called boss last year:

"[Donald Trump is a] blunt instrument for us," he told me earlier this summer. "I don't know whether he really gets it or not."

Call your representatives!  Put on your marching shoes!  We are at war within our own country! The enemy has already taken over the White House, with worse to come!

I realize Democrats would rather compromise than fight. We have seen throughout the bend-over-backwards-to-please and go-along-to-get-along Obama administration where that has led us. We Democrats would like to think that our democracy is strong enough to resist any threat. We like to play by the rules and naively think Republicans will do that, too.  Well, take a look at what is happening and tell me that Republicans play by the same rulebook we do. They have shown us throughout the Obama years and now in the beginning of the Trump administration that they will do ANYthing and EVERYthing to maintain power, without care or concern for the country and its people.

It's time to pay attention to Hillel's now most-important warning:  
If not You, Who? If not Now, When?
