How to Resist Trump’s Shock Doctrine. By Naomi Klein

“I noticed a brutal and recurring tactic by right wing governments. After a shocking event – a war, coup, terrorist attack, market crash or natural disaster – exploit the public’s disorientation. Suspend democracy. Push through radical “free market” policies that enrich the 1 percent at the expense of the poor and middle class.

The administration is creating chaos. Daily. Of course many of the scandals are the result of the president’s ignorance and blunders – not some nefarious strategy.

But there is also no doubt that some savvy people around Trump are using the daily shocks as cover to advance wildly pro-corporate policies that bear little resemblance to what Trump pledged on the campaign trail.

And the worst part? This is likely just the warm up.”

You must watch it here now. 

Trump is already showing signs of trampolining on the Constitution.  He wants to limit freedoms of the press and open up libel suits.  By most accounts in his  final White House briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer gave a briefing with the White House requirement that there be no audio or video recordings.  At this point, one must ask where is the Trump administration headed when it now begins to insist that there be no recording of its official statements during press briefings.
