Manafort

Paul Manafort was paid millions of dollars to be an agent for Vladimir Putin. That's the same Paul manafort that ran the Trump presidential campaign. So Flynn, Sessions and Manafort all work for the Russians.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Russina Stooge

Jeff Sessions committed perjury in service to his Russian Masters.

One wonders at this point if there is anyone connected with the tRump white house that isn't a Russian stooge.

Doanld the Manchurian?

Could Trump be a real life Manchurian candidate?

The Donald has touted his relationship with Vladimir Putin and praised the dictator on several occasions. Now comes word that Trump's campaign manager has been on Putin's payroll. Manafort got over 12 million dollars for his services. More here.

Now Trump's daughter and Putin's girlfriend are vacationing together. Seriously.

It seems like this should raise eyebrows.

Trump jokes about poltical Assassination . . .

via LGM

Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, at a campaign rally, suggested that a President Hillary Clinton would abolish the second amendment to the United States Constitution. In case that (obviously idiotic) idea terrified his followers, he had an idea:

“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said to boos from the crowd.
“By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” he then added.
“Though the Second Amendment folks, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
 That sounds like he is suggesting that gun nuts

Assassinate
either a president or some set of judges.

LGM says it all



It also captures something I find frustrating in the rhetoric around Hillary Clinton: in some sectors, her favorable movement is never acknowledged. Overturning Citizens United was the only concrete policy proposal she made in her acceptance speech. If you want Citizens United overturned, you should give her a cookie; that’s how you shape politician’s behavior. I’m not saying anyone should cheer a campaign promise with all of their heart; no one should just believe anything Clinton (or any politician) says. They should continue to work to create the political conditions that ensure that she follows through. But it’s not very strategic to send the message that there’s no reward for any leftward motion she makes. Fortunately, I don’t think she’s getting that message overall.
