Instead of protecting our country from foreign and domestic adversaries, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsay Graham, (R-SC) are attempting to file phony allegations against former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele, author of the opposition research dossier on Donald Trump. This dossier was launched originally by a Republican PAC to keep Trump from becoming the Republican nominee for the GOP presidential campaign. That effort failed and Republican support for the dossier was dropped, however, Democrats picked up the dossier to continue the research into Trump and his business connections, particularly his connections to Russian dirty money and Vladimir Putin.
Now that the dossier has turned up evidence against Trump, the GOP, Fox "News", and others, are attacking, both, Robert Mueller, dossier creator, Christopher Steele, and the Democrats. Their fear is that this dossier will help bring down Trump - and possibly, the GOP itself. The ultimate GOP fear is that the complete collapse of their ‘House of Cards’ could nullify Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States, forcing a redo.
It does not take much of a stretch of the imagination to see that the United States is in the midst of a genuine constitutional crisis. Ordinary Americas must rise up against the radical right wing that includes the GOP, and Donald Trump and his administration. Get off your duffs people - and fight for our constitution and our democracy! Republicans want you to feel helpless, demoralized and defeated. Stand up and fight people – fight!
And to those of you who still think right wing radicalism is not a local threat, think again.

Local Civitas Institute (now inactive) registered with Vermont Secretary of State:
I believe the Norwich, Vermont Civitas Institute is related to the extreme right wing North Carolina Civitas Institute & John William Pope Foundation:
Further, the “religious” right swears that the United States is not a secular nation, that our forefathers did not intend there be Separation of Church and State. They further believe that “Religious Freedom” gives them the right to impose their beliefs on our government, schools – and on all of us personally (judging us all based on their religious beliefs). They believe America should be ruled by “God’s Law”, that we are a “Christian nation”, a “White Christian Nation”, or more succinctly, a “White Evangelical Nation” run by religious laws as interpreted by the most conservative (and suspect) among us.
The so-called “Freedom Caucus” and “Christian Caucus” in Congress, both claim that they are involved in government to enhance all religious freedoms. In reality, this does not involve Islam, because Islam “is not a real religion”. Nor are any other religions considered "real" when compared to American Evangelical Christianity....
