Even though my posts have slowed to barely a trickle, as most readers know, I’m no fan of Trump.

Nor is Reason‘s Nick Gillespie, whose latest piece totally cracked me up:

Donald Trump, the most-unlikely and least-liked president in the history of the United States, had barely celebrated his first 100 days when calls for his impeachment started flying faster than Anthony Weiner dick pics at a Girl Scout cookout. For the good of democracy, don’t you see, the Republicans must not only be kicked to the curb in the 2018 midterms, but the president himself must be thrown into the street, just like he once tried to evict that old lady from her house in Atlantic City!

Read it all, as it’s as insightful as it is hilarious.

Inept and politically stupid as Trump’s firing of FBI Director Comey was, the ludicrous way the left is overreacting all but outdoes him, and once again plays right into Trump’s hands. That as president Trump had every right to fire Comey is beyond dispute, yet we are being told that it means the end of “everything we hold dear.” As Dan Rather continues to note on Facebook, not only is the Comey firing comparable to Watergate, it’s even like World War II, the Kennedy assassination, and 9/11:

I find myself returning in my mind to dark days from the past, trying to remember how we as a nation felt, when Pearl Harbor was attacked, when Kennedy was shot, when Watergate took down a President, when terrorists rained terror from the skies. We somehow overcame. And I do believe that we shall overcome, someday. Perhaps, hopefully, someday soon.

But in the end, prayer will not be enough. Action, sustained action, will be required.

Yow! Whoda thunk it?

Another noted leftist scholar sees the Comey firing as a form of deadly fascism:

The firing of Comey is an audacious turn toward fascism that must be stopped before it’s too late. We are now fighting for our lives as we know them. There’s no time to waste.

Really? Because Comey’s gone we’re now fighting for our lives? Especially considering that I’m a veteran of the AIDS era, perhaps I should be paying more attention.

Being an old geezer at 62, I am old enough to remember a thing called Bush Fascism. In fact, I remember writing several posts on the subject. Naturally, Bush was supposed to be canceling the elections imposing martial law, scrapping the Constitution, and all the rest of it.

But the firing of an FBI Director?

As fascism definitions go, it’s a brand new one.

And just think about this one. Not long ago, President Obama was being urged to fire Comey, but he failed to do so.

I guess we had a close call. At the time (2016) no one realized how close we came to fascism. Nor did they realize how by the simple act of leaving Comey in office, Obama saved the Republic.
