How did it happen that right-wing autocrats have taken over and putting back the progress of American democracy made since the New Deal? The level of corruption in this administration is stunning, as nearly half of surveyed Americans think it might be better to have essentially a king. ~ Are the principles of democracy this country was founded on being eroded right before our eyes? The director of the CIA has described Trump's administration as equivalent to a banana republic. Did Trump fire our ambassador to Ukraine as a part of a scam to get an American oligarch on the board of an oil and gas company there? ~ Are conservatives deliberately radicalizing our police forces to become the right wing's Gestapo? ~ Plus Thom reads from 'The Cult of Trump' by Steven Hassan.
