Covington, Kentucky is where humanity goes to die.
Down in the west Texas town of El Paso, I fell in love with an Uzbek girl – DJT
Trump touted wall building in San Antonio.
Trump’s “big announcement” was met with Democratic crickets. Offering to give back what one has taken away (DACA) is hardly an incentive for potential Quislings.
More bad news for the POTUS: he’s already lost the dummy demographic. Now ex-cons are abandoning him. However, maquereaus are still in his corner.
BuzzFeed is back in the news again, for all the wrong reasons again. It is a reckoning of sorts for online news outfits. Stick with WaPo and NYT for real reporting.
Government is shutdown, federal workers are going to food banks. It’s just like living in Putin’s Russia.
Arkansas is moving to ban books by Howard Zinn from public schools. I thought Arkansas schools only used the Bible.
Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is in hot water for lying about meeting with a Russian ambassador. He’s vulnerable when not wearing his Klan regalia.
All The President of Russia’s Men.
Some say Sessions should be locked up. Exile in Siberia would be more apt.
Some say Trump’s Russian is more coherent than his English. In English he says Sessions didn’t say anything wrong and that Democrats are engaged in a witch hunt.
Too bad Sessions rode in on Baba Yaga’s broomstick.
Trump’s deplorables have been radicalized by Breitbart, Fox News, and extremist Christian academies.
Weak willed people are susceptible to the propaganda of a strongman like Trump. One sees the same phenomenon in Turkey and Russia.
Trump supporters are precisely the sort that “founders” like Hamilton and Madison worried about.
Worse yet, the Republican Party is acting as a fifth column.
The first act of Trump’s presidency is likely unconstitutional. It won’t be the last time this happens. The courts are the only thing that stand between democracy and dictatorship.

Before it begins:
It’s nice of the Republican’s “law and order” nominee to reveal the Putin-Snowden-Assange-Trump axis. However, he can expect a visit from the FBI.
Mr Trump has said he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose any votes. Now he’s saying he can suborn espionage from a foreign government and get away with it.
Many of Mr Trump’s supporters share his bromance with the Russian strongman.
Mr Assange may have given the UK government a legitimate legal reason to extradite him to the US.
Well played, Jules.
The VPOTUS states the obvious that Mr Trump has no clue.
He closes with “We’re America!” Riveting!
Mr Bloomberg just locked down independent voters for Ms Clinton by suggesting Mr Trump is incompetent and possibly insane. Harsh words from one billionaire to another.
Tim Kaine speaks in Spanish. Mr Trump tweets in support of his deportation.
The POTUS calls Mr Trump a home-grown demagogue.
POTUS and Clinton embrace.
It’s OK to be an indie person.
One person’s turncoat is another person’s realist.
Bond villains are always kitschy. They are not winning roles for any actor.
There have been no Russian incursions of Turkey’s sovereign airspace since its plane was downed.
There’s a difference between Republicans and Americans.
The perfect picture of American conservatism: armed and treasonous.
Putin versus Erdogan. Two dictators having a spat is not a pretty sight.
As the Diego Costa of international relations, Mr Putin faces the problem of a lack of credibility when he cries wolf.
As the kids say, “sh*t just got real” for Russia’s Eternal President.
I’m no friend of Erdogan (who himself is a very bad actor), but Mr Putin was warned about violating Turkey’s airspace (I believe when Russia’s model airplane/drone was shot down a few months ago). Now, he’s been taught a harsh lesson in the meaning of respect for the sovereignty of other nations, something he’s wilfully ignored in Ukraine.
It’s ironic to hear the Black Hand of Donetsk use the language of “stab in the back.” All of this could have been avoided if Mr Putin had respected the international law of sovereignty.
US versus Syrian refugees. Caterwauling emocons are afraid of their own shadows.
