1. What Bannon and others in the Trump camp are

boasting of, and coordinating with uber-right leaders in other nations for, is the continued formation of a unified national and international movement against liberalism and secularism.

Already here in the U.S., the people who voted for Trump see "draining the swamp" as meaning purging liberal policies and programs, and of course liberals, from Washington and state governments.

That's behind their liking for Putin and Russia, who they see as allies against liberalism.

That's why they don't mind a Goldman Sachs exec becoming a cabinet officer. He's also part of their noble crusade to "take back" their nation from liberalism.

Of course, since our nation is founded on liberal principles borne out of the Enlightenment and guaranteed by our constitution, they're trying to destroy a lot more than most realize, but they're propaganda-driven and are very, very far from understanding that.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us ... that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln
