Specter of Fascism: Cohen Says Trump Won’t Leave Peacefully in 2020

Oh, he'll fuc king leave, one way or another. If there is a preponderance of evidence, he'll negotiate a soft landing. The will make leaving irresistable, and he will be too greedy to resist. If not, history provides guidance:



//
CARMEN RUSSELL-SLUCHANSKY: Yeah, I mean, I like what you said, actually, about the financialization, particularly. Because I mean, honestly, I think if people saw bankers go to jail under Obama for the ’07-’08 crash, we don’t have Trump, because they don’t feel so desperate. But when you see who he brought in, and the fact that–like Lawrence Summers, and even Eric Holder–I mean, Eric Holder’s great in so many ways. But you know, he came from New York, and he went back to a Wall Street firm, and is making I think $2.5 million, or something like that. And you know, nobody went to jail. I mean, you have to, have to wonder, like, how–well, you don’t have to wonder. People see this. And so they throw a Hail Mary. And that’s partially how we end up where we’re at.

PAUL JAY: And if you don’t see Bush and Cheney go to jail for launching an illegal war that kills a million people–like, if you can do that and not be accountable, what can’t you get away for? Get away with, sorry. Jacqueline, final word.

JACQUELINE LUQMAN: Yeah. And I have to add Elliott Abrams. If he doesn’t go to–if he not only doesn’t go to prison, but he also gets another job in another administration, what else are people supposed to think, like Dr. Giroux said, in a country where politics follows culture, and our culture is so bereft of actual real, clear understanding of justice and equality?


This is yet another reference that I have read to the phenomenon that pins the rise of Trump to Obama's failure to bring the banksters to justice, one of the most significant failures of his presidency. It makes sense; the sense of a two-tiered system of money and justice, driven home hard, leading to the sense of, "I'm going to voite to bring the whole goddam thing down."

As you know, I really enjoy things like this, but for the many truths in there, it's a lot of pipe dreams and happy talk until the Ds put together a campaign, a candidate and a strategy and put together the volunteers for the miserable, thankless slog known as the ground game. Because 2020 the Ds will be up against not only the Rs but their major donors, the banksters, the extractive industries, and the Russians. I assume nothing.

Just my two cents.


Well said. 
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
