The Trump/Pence regime is a dangerous threat to humanity. Yes, we spent eight years struggling mightily to stop the crimes of the  Bush regime, and eight more working to stop the crimes against humanity the U.S. under Obama.

And now, everything they did to exercise U.S. domination over other peoples, using executive power, and the largest military in world history, has been handed to Donald Trump and Mike Pence.  But this is not just a continuation. The Trump/Pence regime has a  fascist program.

"Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive 'traditional values.' Fascism feeds on and encourages the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. Fascism, once in power, essentially  eliminates traditional democratic rights. Fascism attacks, jails, even  executes its opponents, and launches violent mob attacks on minorities."

World Can't Wait/War Criminals Watch Advisors are Resisting Trump/Pence:

David Swanson
No, Trump Did Not Make a Mistake in Yemen "War is a crime. War is murder. Murder is a crime. What if Trump were articulate? What if he had the right damn intelligence, as Obama supposedly did during the past 8 years of murdering men, women, and children? If you bomb them from on high are they less murdered than if you do it from the ground? How many dead foreigners are worth one American?"

Sunsara Taylor:
Fascism on the March, Sharpening Crisis, and the Urgency to Act
"Resisting every attack by Trump-Pence is essential, but it alone will not be sufficient. The regime as a whole must be driven from power. This is what we must set our sights on...Unless and until we succeed in this, the Trump-Pence fascist regime will continue to barrel ahead with its fascist agenda, to trample the objections of the masses of people, to cut down any within the ruling structures who oppose them, to shred even the limited previously existing “checks and balances,” and to hammer into place a radically new world order and fascist form of governance in this country."

Andy Worthington:
Donald Trump Proposes to Keep Guantánamo Open, to Prevent Further Releases, and to Reintroduce Torture and “Black Sites” "...[O]ur worst fears on Guantánamo and torture were confirmed, when the New York Times published a leaked draft executive order, “Detention and Interrogation of Enemy Combatants,” indicating that Donald Trump wants to keep Guantánamo open, wants to send new prisoners there, and wants to “suspend any existing transfer efforts pending a new review as to whether any such transfers are in the national security interests of the United States.” Trump also, it seems, wants to reinstate torture and the use of CIA “black sites.”
