"A line-up of the dirty dealers and defenders of the indefensible who are definitely not "making America great again." Donald Trump has assembled a rogue's gallery of alt-right hatemongers, crony capitalists, immigrant bashers, and climate-change deniers to run the American government. To survive the next four years, we the people need to know whose hands are on the levers of power. And we need to know how to challenge their abuses. John Nichols, veteran political correspondent at the Nation, has been covering many of these deplorables for decades. Sticking to the hard facts and unafraid to dig deep into the histories and ideologies of the people who make up Trump's inner circle, Nichols delivers a clear-eyed and complete guide to this wrecking-crew administration"

An encouraging guide to resiliency and people's resistance to the failing Trump presidency (book was written in 2017 and precedes the Mueller investigation). The author has written a thorough analysis and quick portraits of the greed-oriented sycophants who surround Trump and share his authoritarian ways. From investors Robert and Rebekah Mercer, to Steve Bannon, to Ajit Pai, Nichols writes up a damning indictment of each player. He ends the book with an exhortation to all citizens to not just know the players and countervailing watchdog groups, but also confront the inside group: "...make sure that when Trump cabinet members and appointees travel, they too are met and challenged."

John Nichols and The Nation he reports at, Exhibits #1 and #2 as to probably why so many voted Trump! I remember Nichols cheering with the rest of the ignorant [or amoral ???] rubes in Wisconsin when Bill Clinton showed up during their attempted recall of Gov. Scott Walker - - why oh why would they cheer someone who supported that godawful // right-to-work \\, i.e., anti-collective bargaining, in Arkansas, when those in Wisconsin were against Walker for the very same thing?!?!?!?
And The Nation, gave up on that bunch years ago after I looked into the backgrounds of the family which publishes it and awhile back when I was curious enough to read it once again, an article by the Senior Editor in charge of fact-checking at the New Yorker [about Guatemala], actually sounded like it supported Eisenhower's directed military coup there to overthrow their democratically elected president, Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. And said NYer senior editor falsely stated that he was a communist, when Mr. Guzman had been a capitalist who simply wanted to create a middle class in his country [said NYer editor also neglected to mention that the main financial backer and friend to Eisenhower, financier Floyd Odlum, was also the majority shareholder in United Fruit at that time].
Nope, endless Fake News for decades and decades probably got Trump elected - - that and those vile speeches HRC gave before the Wall Streeters, promising to once again screw over the American worker!
[FYI: During the first election of Gov. Walker in Wisconsin, over 40% of union households voted for him - - in the recall election, the final demographics suggested that the second time over 50% of union households voted for him!?!?]
