  • Bill Resnick and Bill Smaldone continue their interview on fascism and Trumpism. In the second part today they discuss how Trump and our warrior politicians and forces can manufacture a threat to this country  -- maybe from Muslim fundamentalism, maybe with Russia or China -- that could justify some form of martial law greatly curtailing civil liberties.
