The far-right Bolsonaro movement wants us dead. But we will not give up Demagogues and despots like Bolsonaro are a dime a dozen. They centrally rely on intimidation, fear and the use of state repression to consolidate power. A refusal to give into that fear, but instead to join hands with those who intend to fight against it, is always the antidote to this toxin.

Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them. Mueller's examination of all the so-called "links" between Trump campaign officials and Russia that the U.S. media has spent almost three years depicting as "bombshell" evidence of criminality met the same fate: the evidence could not, and did not, establish that any such links constituted "coordination" or "conspiracy" between Trump and Russia.

Since last week's indictments alleging that 13 Russian nationals and entities created fake social media accounts and sponsored political events to sow political discord in the U.S., something of a consensus has arisen in the political and media class (with some notable exceptions) that these actions not only constitute an "act of war" against the U.S., but one so grave that it is tantamount to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
