Regardless of how much people dislike him (Queen Elizabeth will not even provide him a state dinner), the fact that a majority of voting 'Mericans selected Mr. Yuge cannot be ignored.  The party of Lincoln has sunk to a new low.

Still, the latest news from Robert Mueller's office is stunning.  An indictment of twelve Russian spies on Friday details the efforts of twelve Russian military intelligence officers (GDU) who created fictitious personas to diseminate hacked Democratic Party communications to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. Russia began targeting Clinton campaign volunteers and employees at least as early as March 2016; Dutch intelligence says Russian hackers began their efforts to penetrate top Democratic communications in 2014. A Russian hacking operation, known as Guiciffer 2.0, was in contact with a man named Robert Stone who was himself in contact with senior members of Trump's campaign. Donald Trump told reporters on July 27, 2016, that he had no idea who was responsible for hacking email accounts belonging to Democratic National Committee officials. That is an outright lie;  Trump's biggest malfeasence in the Russian Connection affair has been his cover-up of the Russian  operation through vehement, repeated public statements denying the existence of the entire conspiracy--the so-called "witch hunt".  Far from "making America great again", his actions are a profound betrayal of what remains of decaying American democracy.  Yet incredibly, the carpetbagger Trump is scheduled to meet Monday with the former spy behind it all--Valdimir Valdimirovich Putin.

BJ Idonwanna sez: Blessed are those persecuted for righteousness sake...
The mischief springs from the power which the monied interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges which they have succeeded in obtaining...and unless you become more watchful in your states and check this spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that the most important powers of government have been given or bartered away....Andrew Jackson, 1837
