Ilhan Omar: I Believe President Trump Is ‘Fascist’

Westlake Legal Group GXizrhyiOUQp2AYnwHup7v1nTfT_O0N6gL54t-btFLM Ilhan Omar: I Believe President Trump Is ‘Fascist’ r/politics

Hmmm..

Fascism is a form of radical right-wing 1,authoritarian 2ultranationalism 3characterized by dictatorial power 4,forcible suppression of opposition 5and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

1: Its hard to not classify the entire GOP’s reaction post-2008 as anything but radically-right-wing (the bad radical, not the surfer-radical), 2016 took it to the extreme with an eagerness to roll-back protections on everything they can.

2: Trumps leadership style of “leader-first;lead-later” certainly falls within authoritarianism, likewise the disinformation campaigns we’ve been barraged by (“The authoritarian wants us to lose our faith in our ears and our eyes, what we read and what we observe, so that we can be more dependent on him,” Ben-Ghiat said. “‘Reality is what I say it is. SRC

3: Ultranationalism is an “extreme nationalism that promotes the interest of one state or people above all others”, or simply “extreme devotion to one’s own nation”. If that’s not expressed in Trump’s “love it or leave it”, then I don’t know what captures it.

4: Trump believes government employees, such as the attorney general, FBI director and judges, should be loyal to him personally rather than follow the law and Constitution.

5: Again, falls in the “love it or leave it”, among many other examples: Capernick/NFL kneeling, attempted voter suppression, repeated attacks against the media, etc. etc.

Yeah, I’d say he’s a fucking fascist, no wonder he hates antifa so much.

Mega Thread: Unsealed Michael Cohen documents reportedly implicate Trump, Hicks, others in ‘hush-money’ payments

Westlake Legal Group ohrndFkROMw2tkaYjcQpmJiCmzyaOZ42mvYw17sxucM Mega Thread: Unsealed Michael Cohen documents reportedly implicate Trump, Hicks, others in 'hush-money' payments r/politics

Court documents related to hush money payments arranged by President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen were filed unsealed Thursday.

The documents include a description of an Oct. 8, 2016, phone call Cohen received from Trump’s campaign communications chief Hope Hicks, during which ‘Trump joined the call,’ which federal investigators believed was related to an effort to keep porn star Stormy Daniels from going public with her claims of having had sex with Trump a decade earlier.

Hicks was interviewed by the FBI about the phone calls with Cohen, the documents indicate.

The filing by federal prosecutors in New York came a day after the judge in Cohen’s criminal case ordered their release, saying that the end of a probe into those payments meant they should be made public.

Feds Unseal Hundreds of Documents Showing How Cohen Silenced Trump’s Alleged Mistresses

Westlake Legal Group lRQb8VJCB6EIlKbYEcQTFSnCJ21wrNGUAUoaivTjTo0 Feds Unseal Hundreds of Documents Showing How Cohen Silenced Trump’s Alleged Mistresses r/politics

From Hope Hicks testimony in June, page 47:

Jackson: Were you ever present when Trump and Cohen discussed Stormy Daniels?

Hicks: No, ma’am.

Jackson: You were never present when they discussed Stormy Daniels?

Hicks: No.

Jackson: I’m going to say it again. Were you ever present when Trump and Mr Cohen discussed Stormy Daniels, since it was all over the news that that occurred?

Philbin: Let me just object to make – my understanding is this question is limited to during campaign. That’s the line of questioning.

Jackson: That’s correct, sir.

Hicks: So, no is my answer.

Oct 8, 2016 was during the campaign…

Edit: She’s asked again, and denies again, on page 179.

Pete Buttigieg has a point: Republicans will call any Democratic nominee a socialist

Westlake Legal Group 1mry4SEPIc-9PfJpWRBSOCFFAJtYhACpvq022xoTTu4 Pete Buttigieg has a point: Republicans will call any Democratic nominee a socialist r/politics

Buttigieg is also right when he says that the GOP will tag even the most middle-of-the-road Democratic nominee as a scary radical. Democrats found that out, he says, after co-opting the Republican-born plan that became the Affordable Care Act: “That was the most conservative intervention you can think of, and as soon as it was adopted, they started calling it socialism.”

“If we embrace a left-wing agenda,” he said, “the president’s going to say we’re socialists and we’re for open borders. If we adopt a conservative agenda, the president’s going to say we’re socialists and we’re for open borders. So we might as well stand up for what we believe in and take it from there.”

The fact that Buttigieg has supporters back in Indiana who voted for him, former President Barack Obama, Trump, and Vice President and former Gov. Mike Pence means they’re open to politicians of very different stripes. Clearly, “what they don’t do is look at how your dot” on the political spectrum “matches their dot.”

He’s arguing that means there’s no paddling back to the safe harbor of a Joe Biden or any other moderate: “A lot of people in our part of the country are ready to burn the house down. We can’t promise politics as usual.”

While many Democrats already recognize this, the majority seemingly still don’t. One of Pete’s biggest strengths is his ability to couch progressive ideas/values in more moderate language. I hope he’s able to break this message through to the party as a whole.

William Barr’s donations to Senate Republicans spiked just before they confirmed him as attorney general

Westlake Legal Group HRVSWxUkDP1HwQUD0A5xcxrGmI17z7J3Oi-0MvPyTZ0 William Barr’s donations to Senate Republicans spiked just before they confirmed him as attorney general r/politics

Key consideration here: their ability to buy these positions goes away if the public were to rally around a general strike.

Organize with your community to build supply lines.

A serious threat to their financial system, seeing us peacefully organize as much as possible around our own needs, is a huge threat to the viability of the power structure they rely on.

Or y’all could sit here reinforcing your anxiety over what’s wrong, letting it snowball.

IMO that’s not really in-line with American heritage, never discussing the “how to change it” in any real way except “sit on hands, wait for election, cross fingers.”

Fuck the aristocracy

Jon Stewart accuses Rand Paul of ‘fiscal responsibility virtue signaling’ in stalling 9/11 victims funding

Westlake Legal Group jktNTVU3S1rVOZMqFWxx1Cwr8jkATQRwzwI_ifk1ThE Jon Stewart accuses Rand Paul of ‘fiscal responsibility virtue signaling’ in stalling 9/11 victims funding r/politics

I’m not a fan of accusing people of “virtue signalling”

Why? It’s something that people definitely do, and can be verified based on past behavior. The fact that the alt right throws around this term without merit shouldn’t denigrate the idea.

Everytime Trump talks about making America great again, panders to Evangelicals, drones on about gun rights, or any other of the core values the right claims to stand for, he’s virtue signaling.

Trump embodies the very idea of what virtue signaling really is.
