The fascist direction of Donald Trump's plans are confirmed by statements from his cabinet/advisors-in-waiting.
13 years after a coalition of Western forces invaded and occupied the sovereign state of Iraq, the world is still waiting for U.S. withdrawal of its troops. We are convinced that U.S. intent is not to "save" Iraqis, but to advance its own imperial agenda.
From the tributes paid to Trump's nominee for Secretary of Defense you'd expect retired Marine Corps General "Mad Dog" Mattis to be some kind of 'warrior poet'. Dig a little deeper. His quips about warfare are neither amusing nor benign.
The "most revered Marine in a generation" advised his troops that fighting is "a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling."
The battle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline is the expression of the determination of thousands of indigenous people coming together - the largest such gathering in over a century - and, through their perseverance and example, inspiring thousands more to join with them to stop another disaster for our water and the life that depends on it. And make no mistake: President Obama has the power to stop the military assault on the Water protectors. The Army Corps of Engineers is under the cammand of the executive branch. BUt he has not. Instead, he declared November "National Native American Heritgae Month."
Be part of resisting the horrors the Trump presidency brings by supporting World Can't Wait

One of Donald Trump's first decisions as president-elect was to name Steve Bannon his chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon managed Trump's campaign. Before that he was the owner and hands-on force behind the website Breitbart News Network. Mainstream news and Bannon himself call Bannon's politics "conservative," "alt-right," or "white nationalist." It's worse than that.
As speculation swirls around how bad a Trump regime will prove -- which promises he'll keep and which he will abandon -- magical thinking delays a proper response to the very real deployment of fascist rule in America. "That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn or be forced to accept," reads the original World Can't Wait call to Drive Out the Bush Regime.
