Richard, as I indicated before, I think it is more important to report the historical facts about Trump, and his administration, as history is being made. We simply disagree.
I agree with the Washington Post's
motto: "Democracy Dies in Darkness."
I recently read a book which was very educational: Fascism: A Warning
written by former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, who currently teaches graduate students at Georgetown University. The book is an overview of 20th century fascism -- and the methods and techniques used politically to gain and then consolidate power. For instance, I learned that in Italy, Benito Mussolini created the "drenare la palude" (drain the swamp) motto when he wanted to fire more than 35,000 civil servants.
After last week's Supreme Court decision limiting workers right to sue their employers, I also noted that a few days later, Trump signed an executive order making it easier to fire government employees. https://www.govexec.com/m...ng/148557/
I also agree with Senator Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., who said the executive orders, including the one expediting discipline and firing, erode federal employees’ due process protections.
'Rather than improving government efficiency, these executive orders will make it harder to resolve workplace disputes; report waste, fraud and abuse; and ensure a fair and safe workplace for federal employees,' he said. 'Instead of trying to erode the rights of federal employees and whistleblowers, the administration should focus on the abuses of Cabinet officials taking charter and first class flights and buying $31,000 dining sets and $43,000 soundproof booths.'
Basically, I am concerned about our democracy -- and, that is why I will continue to post history as it is being made by Donald J. Trump.
All the best!
