It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed and the treachery of their leaders..

Let’s be honest here. No one ever has hated saying “I told you so.” Those probably are the four most delicious words in the English language.

But this one time, while I love being proved right, I truly hate being proved right, for America has placed its highest office into the hands of a dangerous, unAmerican, racist, cowardly, lying fool, who is doing his darnedest to turn America into a totalitarian state.

Here are a few of the many posts we have published, predicting our new dictator:

Hitler in America. Why a bigot can win the Presidency, Saturday, Jul 4 2015
Any moral person of normal intelligence will see Trump for what he is, a big-mouthed, egomaniacal extremist, as much a danger to America as Hitler was to Germany — and using the same tactics.

Of whom does Donald Trump remind you? Saturday, Jul 11 2015
Trump is our modern-day Hitler, and you will see that haters will be his core constituency, just as the haters were Hitler’s. Most dictators have gained power via hatred of some group. It happened in Hitler’s Germany. It happened in Stalin’s Russia (Jews and Bolsheviks). It happened in Mao’s China (the rich, the educated, the clergy). Always, there was some group at which hatred was directed — some group falsely blamed. And the result always has been disaster, for that is where hatred always leads. As Trump’s popularity rises, it is happening here. He is forcing us onto a well-traveled path.

Hitler redux Monday, Dec 7 2015
By appealing to the most stupid and hate-obsessed among us, he has shamed America. Perhaps that is his way to “Make American Great Again,” by being as unAmerican as possible.

Down the dark road. How a nation loses its liberty.Thursday, Aug 18 2016
As George Santayana reputedly said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Trump backers cannot remember the past, or if they remember, they naively believe, “It cannot happen here,” and “This time is different.” Ignorance has its penalties. If Trump is elected, his followers and their families will pay with their lives, for yes, it can happen here, and no, this time is not different. Freedom is fragile. It is difficult to gain and easily lost. Trump is the reincarnation of every merciless dictator who ever trod the earth. He is not new. He is not unique. We have seen him many times before, bearing many flags and wearing many faces. Fools follow dictators down the dark road to their doom. First, they lose their compassion. Then they lose their morality. Then they lose their freedoms and their lives. It all begins with one small step.

Astounding similarities: Of whom does this remind you? It’s happening now. Friday, Sep 30 2016
Hitler changed Germany to a land of hatred, where people were despised for their religion or political leanings, and children even extended the hatred to their parents. Under Trump, America too is being changed into a land of hatred. The Emails and comments I receive now are far more vicious and insane than any in the past.

Why do you believe what you believe? “It’s not my fault.” Sunday, Oct 23 2016
Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Castro, Mao Zedong, Robert Mugabe, Pol Pot — all followed the same script: “Your lives are bad. It’s not your fault. It’s the fault of [scapegoats]. Only I can save you.“

What next? Kristallnacht? Nov 17 2016
Hatred is easy to sell; fools buy it.  Compassion is more difficult, which is why group hatred generally begins with the lowest intelligent among us. Hatred also is quite contagious and difficult to control. It seeps into every pore of the population until no one is safe.

Growing fascism and “alternative facts” in America, Monday, Jan 23 2017
Every demeaning comment Trump makes, every angry tweet, every anti-press complaint, every anti-progressive, anti-minority law he encourages represents one more chip off the face of the Statue of Liberty. The Germans could not believe it could happen to them. They sneered at the warnings . . . . until it was too late. We object to Trump, not because he is a strongman, but because he is weak man.

Crazy rich: The”well-oiled machine.” Saturday, Feb 18 2017
What is the commonality among all these dictators? They all had met modern diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder. They are megalomaniacs. And what is the first act of the dictator? To destroy the media that oppose him.

And yesterday, in the style of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Kim Jong-un, Castro, et al:

Major Media Outlets Barred From White House Briefing, Posted on Feb 24, 2017
By Jacob Sugarman

The Trump administration continued its rapid slide into authoritarianism Friday as several news outlets including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Politico and Buzzfeed were barred from attending a meeting with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Outlets that were invited included NBC, ABC and Fox News along with the Washington Times and Breitbart, where Trump’s senior adviser Steve Bannon was previously editor-in-chief. Both Time and the Associated Press refused to attend in protest.

The news was met with horror and disgust by journalists across the political spectrum.

I told you so, all you who gave your precious vote to Trump. I told you so.

And it scares the sh*t out of me, because it has happened before, in so many countries, where the people believed, “It can’t happen here.”

And too many of us still haven’t learned.

Monetary Sovereignty

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

ECONOMICS LAWS

•Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.

•Any monetarily NON-sovereign government — be it city, county, state or nation — that runs an ongoing trade deficit, eventually will run out of money.

•The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes..

•No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth.

•Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.

•A growing economy requires a growing supply of money (GDP = Federal Spending + Non-federal Spending + Net Exports)

•Deficit spending grows the supply of money

•The limit to federal deficit spending is an inflation that cannot be cured with interest rate control. The limit to non-federal deficit spending is the ability to borrow.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Progressives think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.

•The single most important problem in economics is the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Austerity is the government’s method for widening the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap between the rich and the rest..
