The Reich on the left, Robert Reich, is always right, while the Reich on the right, the Republican Reich is wrong. However, most Americans never get to learn that, because the Republican Reich controls the media though the vile tactics of Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten.

Thanks, Tom....we're going to be VERY BUSY for awhile, making lists, assigning ''watch'' groups, etc.

The one that strikes me as being, not perhaps new, but taken beyond what has been previously seen, is #7 - Bypass the media and communicate with the public directly. I am not myself on Twitter, but you'd have to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to see his tweets. In fact, I expect I am not seeing all of them, but what I am seeing is so loud it drowns out the media. And other people, much smarter people, are communicating on Twitter as well, and they are getting drowned out as well.

We need to FIGHT against a President Trump if we value our country...he did not win fairly. Anxiously awaiting results of recounts.

There's a larger range of media and some entirely new ones at that nowadays, but apart from that this is all straight out of "Dictatorship for dummies", based on Joseph Goebbels' propaganda manuals. And the mainstream media allow it to happen, afraid their ratings will drop or their readers will leave them, and they'd be out of a job.

Sage advice from Mr. Reich.

I don't know anything about tweeting, or twitter. I usually see/read it after the fact.
I find it interesting that DT can talk spitefully, spew hatred, but as soon as a paper reports it, they get banned. Scary, scary times ahead!!!

This is a very sick bastard, with virtually no idea about how a Democracy works, nor does he give a damn! It is all about him, and he is doing what playground bullies do. Oh, maybe that's really why he got rid of Christie, 'cause , you know, he's "…not a bully!" Or is it that there is only room enough for one bully in this playground?

The German politicoes of the early 1930' thought that making Hitler the Chancellor, would be safe, because, they expected, he'd wind up virtually buried under the mass of bureauocratic tape that they knew to be part of being a Chancellor. "Well, boys, he said, in effect, I can't be bothered with your expectations, I'm doing things my way!" THAT IS WHERE RUMPY IS GOING! "Screw protocol, and the rest, this is my game, and I will make the rules!" I have a wild guess to make: He will wind up owning Twitter!

Lenin said if you control the media then you control the people.

Drumpf has the attitude of an absolute ruler . . . his way or the highway.  That is not democracy.  That is an abuse against democracy.

Trump is an excellent reason to not be on Twitter – there is no such thing as bad publicity in Trump's world so maybe we all just start ignoring the banana-butt?

You said it, Chris C! I am hoping to get a coalition started in the Southeast. I am making my list and checking it twice, a list of progressive, environmental, immigrant rights, etc. groups that I plan to contact so we can all work together in opposition to this bugnut's demented agenda.

Robert Reich is so right. We can only hope the media learns from this and starts reporting everything, not just the tidbits DT throws at them. Thanks for the post, TomCat.

Agree with others that the times are going to get interesting. I pray our world doesn't fall apart with the ones who will be in control. I 'm for what Chris' says. Thanks TomCat
