The Coming Onslaught Of Government Repression

RAINER SHEA— As Chris Hedges was written, “Totalitarian rule always elevates the brutal and the stupid.” This is being shown in the fact that Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Ann Coulter have apparently engineered the shutdown by urging Trump to carry it out.

It is doubtful whether the American people will be so lucky: The US Deep State establishment and their tame, unthinking media puppets remain blindly committed to inflexible expansion, conflict and strategic gambling with the peace and even survival of the world.
