In June of 1934, Adolf Hitler decided that he didn’t have enough power, just being chancellor and dictator under the Enabling Act of March of that year, so he had 500 of his political adversaries and perceived enemies murdered on the night of the 30th. That massacre is memorialized in history as “the Night of Long Knives.” On Friday, Donald Trump took revenge on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, for having the guts to come forward and testify in the House impeachment inquiry, by having Vindman escorted off the White House premises and he decided to have Eugene Vindman, his brother, also a Lt. Colonel and serving in the White House, fired as well. That was the warm up act, then Trump fired Gordon Sondland.

The Week:

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reports that although Trump has been complaining about Vindman and Sondland for weeks, his “aides advised him to wait until the trial was over” to fire them. The firings came two days after Trump was acquitted in the Senate. A Trump adviser told CNN’s Jim Acosta the president is “flushing out the pipes.”

This is terra incognita for Americans. Brush up on your history, because this is Dictatorship 101 Trump style. The Vindman brothers and Sondland are not the only three heads going up on a pike. It may take Trump more than one night to do his purge, but this is the beginning. The man is totally Mad King Donald at this point, drunk with vainglory and power on what he perceives as the “total acquittal” and absolute support of the GOP. This is going to get ugly.

This is what I sent my Senators this evening: Dear Senator: Of course I am mortified that you represent me and Mississippi in the Senate. But you creating a Fascist dictator in the United States is beyond reprehensible. The childish, stupid traitor you represent makes you a stupid and childish traitor. Grow up. The Republicans in the Senate only represent 18% of the nation. In 2018 about six million more people voted for Democrats than Republicans. In 2016 more people voted for the Democrat, in spite of the Russian interference. In November we will see what happens. Mississippi’s new Jim… Read more »

I have written and called my own p.o.s. Senators (I live in NC) with similar sentiments but your indictment is much better than anything I’ve come up with so far. Do you mind if I “steal” it? I’d first note someone from Mississippi sent this to his own Senators, and as a Marine of Cold War vintage myself I share every sentiment. I should note that on a variety of issues where I’ve contacted Richard Burr I at least give him credit for working with Mark Warner to provide some (albeit not enough) bi-partisan ship to Senate Intelligence Committee oversight.… Read more »

I was in the Navy from 81 to 90. That is when I became a solid Democrat. Here we have the appointee up for reelection. Hyde-Smith. Mike Espy is running against her. He is too soft spoken I think. He is a nice guy. He needs to raise hell. Democrats down here (I think) should attack everything Republican. That includes their fake religion which is their excuse for promoting fascism. Republicans are the Sodomites of today. Look it up. Too complicated for this late at night. Good night y’all.

Blueman, this is really wonderful. Like Denis, I was going to ask to steal it but he and I have the curse of the same Senators. Tillis has an office around here somewhere, Greensboro or Winston-Salem, that I’d love to see the closing of, because I bet he’s never even seen it. Around here we call him “Sir Hides A Lot”.

According to Stormy, he is a 2” IMPOTUS. That must be why he has such a bad attitude….

Thank you Ursula for your articles tonight. I have been so scared y’all had gone under when I didn’t see any new stories the last day or so. Thank you for all your hard work.

The problem for the republiCLOWNS is they really don’t have any power. The IMPOTUS has no valid nuclear launch codes and the military has to approve anything that they try to do. I don’t think that the russian appeasing seditionist will be getting anymore military support during the rest of his short time in office. You should check out mconnels military record….
