How Trump Exploited The Legal Infrastructure To Advance Fascism In America An emotionally loaded and often misused term, fascism is as real today as a political and cultural force, a set of core beliefs, and a mode of governance as it was when Benito Mussolini founded the Italian Fascist Party in 1919 and declared himself dictator six years later.

If the Supreme Court Won't Restore Voting Rights, Abolishing the Filibuster Will One of the first lessons attorneys involved in high-stakes litigation learn is that it sometimes pays not to say the quiet part out loud, lest your client's true intentions be revealed.

Here's How the Rest of Trump's Desperate Effort to Stay in Power Will Play Out Trump is a fascist who has no regard for democracy. Psychologically, he is a malignant narcissist who suffers from a toxic stew of narcissism, paranoia, antisocial personality disorder and sadism. It is virtually impossible for him to acknowledge, much less accept, failure.

Why Bill Barr Will Go down as the Second-biggest Loser of the Trump Era The history of Barr's service as Trump's attorney general will no doubt be the subject of much future academic and political commentary. Barr will not be among the "winners" who will get to pass judgment on his performance as the nation's top law enforcement officer. To the contrary, Barr will go down as the second-biggest loser of the Trump era, subordinate only to Trump himself.
