If you’re like me, you think that the impeachment of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is painfully obvious and necessary. And, if you’re like me, it is difficult to understand why the rest of the country is not on board with it and why the Repubes are so reluctant to abandon an obvious sinking ship.

In the latest and greatest sign that we are sliding down that slippery slope into fascism, the DNI blows off laws and Congress to protect the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s potentially treasonous promises to a foreign leader and not to protect our democracy from the encroaching fascism of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. How do you like them apples?
Every now and again a little silly cute humor is needed to pull the soul back from the dank darkness of our political abyss. Luckily, we have the First Dog on the Moon drawing Raccoons of the Resistance over at The Guardian to help us with that. Have a read of their comic about saving us all from fascism! It’ll do you good, especially if you read it while drinking a #MoscowMitchMule
By chanting “send her back” every attendee at Trump’s campaign rally in North Carolina has branded him or herself as a racist fascist. Make no mistake, there is a dangerous escalation of the fascist tendencies of the GOP.

How do we resist the assault on our democracy? How do we prevent the further erosion of our democratic institutions and ideals? It is clear that the fascification of America is continuing unabated, so how do we resist? We use our democratic institutions to roll-back the spreading fascism.
The fish rots from the head, as the saying goes. And, we are living in the three million tons of dead rotting fish off the coast of Florida, right about now. When did the head of the Repubes begin their inexorable decay into the festering cesspool of treasonous […]
We’re now embroiled in the outrage du jour: should we tolerate child torturers in our midst? After all, it is just politics the hand wringing both sides pundits would have us believe. It is a disagreement between honest brokers of opposing political philosophies and policies. Or is it? […]
Is it even possible to be happy in Fascist America living amongst the New Cruelty? Hunh? Is it possible? Can any of us be happy again? Certainly, not proud. It is impossible to be proud of Fascist America or the New Cruelty. But, surely we could be happy […]
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s modus operandi has always been to overwhelm those around him with a chaotic fast moving storm of absolute shit. If you never get time to focus on any one thing or crisis or event or insult or outrage, then he can never be held […]
With the rise of the New Cruelty come all kinds of ugly usually racist misogynistic ugly. Aaron Schlossberg provides the latest installment as he goes off on a racist rant in a Manhattan coffee shop following the example set by the Ol’ Pussy Grabber.
It is so very clear that we are blundering toward fascism in the US. We are staggering past authoritarianism and turning the corner toward fascism. The Repbues and the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s goals track with those of all of the fascists before them.
