We Are Rapidly Approaching America’s Version Of Jan. 30, 1933 In Central Europe

On that fateful day of the last century Adolph Hitler attained virtual absolute power over Germany and her peoples. The last line of defense against such a similar Trump dictatorship coming to fruition in American stands in the person of former FBI Director and current Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Of course Trump and his allies know this. They know that if Mueller is allowed to continued building his superb investigative team that it will only be a matter of time before the Counsel exposes Trump’s pack of lies, crimes and traitorous activities for all the world to see, and the chant will rise — lock him up.

Therefore the nation is barreling toward a colossal showdown to rival a combination of the 1952 blockbuster, cowboy shootout movie, High Noon, staring Gary Cooper and the real shootout at the OK Coral in Tombstone Arizona on Oct. 26, 1881, this deadly action pitting Marshal Wyatt Earp, his bothers Virgil and Morgan, and Doc Holliday against the bunch collectively known as the cowboys. Only with this twenty-first century shootout between Trump and Mueller hangs the survival of American and world democracy and likely even the very existence of humanity itself.

Trump must at some point fire Mueller. When this happens the outcome will soon become evident, the people and the other branches of government will either react firmly and successfully against the president’s gambit or they will allow it to slide, causing America to then quickly descend in to a long nightmare of authoritarian terror.
