YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA | 2017.06.01

NBC News reported on a story that The Washington Post reported that the regime of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп would be returning two Russian diplomatic compounds — one in Maryland and one in New York — which former President Barack Obama ordered shuttered in December in retaliation for Russia’s hacking attacks to help Трамп  win the 2016 Presidential election.

The State Department, headed by Rex “I’m literally Exxon and Exxon wants to work with Russia on Arctic Oil Drilling” Tillerson, denied that any such return is in motion.

So, this means we should probably expect the compounds returned in the next day or two.

Speaking of Russian interference in the United States government at the highest levels of power, Senators Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Senator Al Franken (D-MN) requested that the FBI determine whether Southern stereotype and Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III  failed to disclose meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during 2016 Presidential campaign.

Reports say the exchange went like this …

Senator Leahy: Hey, FBI, can you look into whether Jeff Sessions was lying about that meeting with Russia?

FBI: Oh, he totally lied about that.

Senator Franken: Great, can you look into it, though?

FBI: It’s already been in the papers. It’s obvious that he lied.

Senator Franken: We understand, but, we need proof.

FBI: I can … do you want copies of the New York Times?

Senator Leahy: Just, get us some tapes if you can.

FBI: Of what?

Senator Franken: Of Jeff Sessions!

FBI: Oh, right, right. Let me see if–

Sessions: What’s going on, I say, what’s going on in here? You bunch of Yankees!

Senator Franken: We’re just talking with our friends the FBI.

FBI: So, Senators, those tapes, what format do you need those in?

Senator Leahy: …

Senator Franken: …

FBI: Cassette? CD? A flash drive? We can get it to you on a flash drive.

… Anyway, the FBI is still reviewing whether Jeff Sessions lied about stuff, which he did.

Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп announced on twitter last night to his millions of followers, including both real people and millions of fake bot accounts someone purchased for him over the last week, that he will, “… be announcing my decision on Paris Accord, Thursday at 3:00 P.M.  The White House Rose Garden.  MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” This statement in the middle of the night is aligned with his message of “America First” which has apparently meant an upending of everything from strategic alliances with our European allies and withdrawl from the Paris climate accords.

All of which is, of course, in alignment with the wishes of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who’s wanted to destroy NATO since his days as a member of the KGB in the former Soviet Union. His stance on climate change since 2015 has been to publicly embrace the issue while the Russian government has worked to open up new outlets for cooperation with Exxon-Mobil to drill for more oil in places like the Arctic.

So, Putin definitely wants a close relationship with the United States, that would allow for oil drilling with Exxon-Mobil. In addition, he definitely wants to see an end to NATO. And then we have Donald Трамп, who’s apparently helping him with both.

It’s hard to make sense out of this. Why would a senior citizen who has watched a lot of Fox News for the last decade decide that Vladimir Putin of all people is an okay guy, great to work with, and a solid leader? One answer is that it’s because he’s in Putin’s pocket. Another reason? The aforementioned fact that Donald Трамп is a senior citizen who watches a lot of Fox News.

Which is something The Daily Show covered in early 2014 after they noticed.

BIG VLADDY – SEMI-DELUSIONAL AUTOCRATS

So, in 2014, Fox News praises Putin regularly. A year later, in 2015, Donald Трамп runs for President. By 2016 he’s praising Vladimir Putin regularly. And then by 2017, he’s doing his bidding.

Presumably in the late 21st century, this will all be covered by a history course entitled, “Fox News: Why Miami is now an underwater Russian Seaport called ‘Трампingrad.’”
