When Hitler used his Storm Troopers, he took power in Germany in 1932. Read how here.
As this article tells us that after the fire at the Reichstag, “Meanwhile, the Nazis seized even more power, infiltrating the police and empowering ordinary party members as law enforcement officers. On February 22, Hitler used his powers as chancellor to enroll 50,000 Nazi SA men (also known as stormtroopers) as auxiliary police. Two days later, Hermann Göring, Minister of the Interior and one of Hitler’s closest compatriots, ordered a raid on Communist headquarters. Following the raid, the Nazis announced (falsely) that they’d found evidence of seditious material. They claimed the Communists were planning to attack public buildings.”
Trump’s January 6th Capitol insurrection using his Proud Boys failed, but the ominous historical echoes to Hitler’s actions are obvious.
The constant threats of physical harm to anyone opposing Trump on any issue is now endemic. Even non-political government figures such as Dr. Fauci are assaulted with threats of personal attacks and with false claims as by Senator Rand Paul. You can read this Paul exchange with Fauci here.
The public health expert, forced by the Kentucky senator and the right's disinformation campaign, chose integrity over the the façade of nonpartisanship, writes @LincolnMitchell.

Money to pay for some of these attacks comes from solicitations by rabbit hole media who are ascribed to by Trump’s core. Who else put in money for these nefarious plans?
And such a violent insurrection as occurred on January 6th could be used again if the GOP voting rule changes fail to re-elect him in 2024.
What a perfect time now for Putin to attack Ukraine.
Biden’s domestic legislation is in serious disarray thanks to his two balking Democratic Senators.
Hard to believe in the existence of such a repressive 100% condition that has the total Republican Senate now in thrall to Trump and unwilling to even debate Biden’s key legislative initiatives. This outrageous non-governing party is apparently just waiting until the midterms to see if it can steal our right to vote. This likely means no chance for the vitally needed Biden’s voting rights bill. And what part can be passed of Biden’s Build Back Better bill?
As the COVID 19 variant omicron keeps surging, attention to many other urgent issues such as climate change are pushed back. But nothing is as important as keeping our voting rights secure.
In short, in our future, Trump’s felonious crimes will either be stopped, or his power plans will succeed.
Will the announcement on January 13th of those Department of Justice indictments of seditious conspiracy against the Proud Boys initiate the start of Trump’s downfall? These charges of seditious conspiracy are very serious. Read about these indictments here.

As now obvious to such seasoned observers as Fareed Zakaria, whose documentary I commented on in an earlier column, the future of our democratic republic has never been in so dire danger since 1860, just prior to the onset of the Civil War.

As the midterms approach, we can only hope enough citizens awaken to prevent the steal of our voting rights which would enable this dangerous authoritarian and his co-conspirators from continuing in their plan for Trump’s 2024 re-election. Vote rigging in many states controlled by Republican legislatures could insure his winning a 2nd term without another insurrection.
The prompt issuance of the report of the House Commissioner’s January 6th report could lead to further Department of Justice indictments and to the indictment of the ultimate perp, whose clear guilt we have all seen on tv with our own eyes!
Do enough Americans care?
