Midnight Meme Of The Day!


by Noah

It's fitting on so many levels that Herr Trump would be lured by the flag of Putin's old Soviet Union while swimming in a pool of warm yellow water. Why? Do you really have to ask? First of all, Putin's dream is to rebuild the former Soviet Union, and whatever Putin wants, Trump wants too.

Herr Trump confirmed on Wednesday that, just like Putin's folks said, he was going to Helsinki to meet up with his BFF. That's right, he's going to shake hands with the man who attacked our country. Imagine if FDR had agreed to go to Manilla to meet with the Japanese Emperor in 1942 instead of sending Lt.Col. Jimmy Doolittle and a fleet of 16 B25M bombers over Tokyo and other parts of Honshu.

Priorities: As I write this (Thursday afternoon), Republicans in the House of So-called Representatives are grilling Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about, you guessed it, Hillary's emails, and, telling him to end the Russia probe. This is our tax money at work in Washington, folks, not to mention our democracy (or what little of it is left) at risk. I'm old enough to remember the good old days when we held our foreign enemies accountable, one way or another. But, back then, republicans had at least some measure of a sense of patriotism.

It's a good bet that Trump was summoned to Helsinki by Putin. Why else would we hear about the meeting from his people two days before we heard it from Trump's? You can also bet that the meetings will be as private as Trump's meetings with Kim Jong-un were, and you can safely guess that ways to meddle in the 2018 and 2020 elections will be on the agenda. It's to the advantage of both men and they are both every bit as evil enough to have that mutual goal. Meanwhile, our complicit media pundits feign concern by wondering aloud if Trump will "confront Putin." Confront? What planet are they living on? Who the fuck do they think they're kidding (other than sheep)? Whether the media hacks are actually naive enough to think that Trump has a problem with Putin's acts of warfare against us and would be confrontational about it or they know the truth of Trump's treachery hardly matters. Either way, they have willfully abandoned their responsibilities, no doubt to please their corporate masters.

Meanwhile, Trump's ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman, has arranged for three Republican $enators to go to Russia to meet with Putin and other Russian leaders to discuss "common interests" ahead of their boss's visit. The visit will be on the 4th of July. How perfect! In case you'd like to contact the offices of these dubious un-American subhumanoids, they are: Richard Shelby (R-AL), John Neely Kennedy (R-LA), and John Hoeven (R-ND).

How many americans got the greek-tragedy irony of trey gowdy, who spent YEARS "investigating" Bengazi, telling Rosenstein to wrap the Mueller investigation the hell up?

Maybe 1%?

You think this is indicative of a teeny little problem?


carry on.

Nit Pick Item: Doolittle used modified B-25B models. The M model wasn't even designed yet.

You make a great point about comparing Trump meeting with Putin to FDR meeting with Hirohito, not that Japanese customs would have allowed that.

But this topic isn't much of a surprise. Trump has been VERY open in admiring dictators, and Putin is about the last Caucasian dictator Trump can meet. He has to save the best for last, you know.

He's already met with the Asian dictators, and while I am sure that there are African dictators, what are the odds that Trump would demean himself in his own mind to meet with them? They are Black, after all, and Trump is certain that they aren't even human.

The Daily Beast put together a partial list of the dictators trump as met with, at least the ones Americans may have heard of. A Web search reveals many more. This should be worrying Americans (I'll save the question of whether MAGAts are Americans for another time).

“Trump has dictator envy,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University. “You start being more attracted to people like Kim and Putin because they look like they could be presidents for life. And if they have enemies, they don’t have to resort to [former president Richard] Nixon keeping an enemies list. You just destroy your enemies’ lives with a phone call. That’s attractive to Trump.”

The Chigago Tribune put together a list of the times American Presidents have met with dictators. Except for FDR (a major war underway) and JFK, all of the presidents listed are or might as well have been Republicans (the list includes Bill Clinton and a certain "moderate 1985 Reagan Republican"). Does this not indicate that Republican corporatists might as well just come out of the closet and admit that they get off on the application a brute force?

Think of how much the nation would save if we could just hire professional dominatrices to deal with these juvenile jerk-offs.
