South Korea’s air force has staged a live-fire drill simulating the destruction of North Korea’s leadership, hours after Pyongyang launched a ballistic missile over Japan.

Donald Трамп was very excited by the news, and said he was hopeful that a war with North Korea would generate bigger TV ratings than the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.

————

According to NBC News, special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is focused on Donald Трамп’s role in writing a response to a published article about a meeting between a Russian spy and his son Donald Jr.. Prosecutors want to know what Трамп knew about the meeting and whether he sought to conceal its purpose.

Kellyanne Conway dismissed the news, saying, “Everybody knows Donald Трамп can’t write.”

Houstonians received a sliver of good news Tuesday as Tropical Storm Harvey continued its easterly trudge toward Louisiana, easing the pounding rains that have swallowed the city.

Donald Трамп said he was happy about the new direction for the storm. He told reporters, “Y’know, Louisana, that was purchased from someone by a President. Did you know that? Fascinating. They have New Orleans, they have food with shrimp, it’s a great city. Football. Great city, great city folks. And now they’ll get some of the pounding Houston got. Let ‘em get pounded. Not that kind of pounded, folks, not that kind of pounded. Great city. We serve shrimp at Mar-A-Lago, too.”

Трамп eventually wandered away from the press conference and disappeared into a White House bathroom.

Senate Republicans voted Tuesday afternoon to advance to floor debate on their effort to hurt millions of people by repealing the Affordable Care Act thanks to a tie-breaking from Vice President and probable head vampire Mike Pence. Senator John McCain, recently diagnosed with brain cancer, returned to the Senate to vote to help ensure a tie-vote that Pence could break. It looked like Pence had the Senate in his thrall …

… But then a few hours later, the Senate voted 43 to 57 to decisively reject a Republican proposal to repeal-and-replace Obamacare, a sign of the chaos expected to envelop Capitol Hill as GOP leaders work to find a plan their conference can agree to.

Experts say that Pence plans to visit several Republican Senators in the middle of the night to drain their blood, in order to put them more closely under his thrall.

Popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп declassified a secret CIA program to arm Syrian rebels in a series of tweets attacking The Washington Post Monday night.

Трамп tweeted, “The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad……” He went on to call the Post’s stories “Fake News” and accused the paper of being a “Lobbyist for Amazon and taxes.”

White House aides say that Трамп is planning to declassify other secret U.S. programs, but needs to confer with his manager, Russian President Vladimir Putin, on which program is the most important to reveal first.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is “taking a little time off,” according to State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert. The announcement was made amid reports that Tillerson was resigning as Secretary of State.

The State Department said that former Exxon CEO Tillerson just needs, “3, maybe 4 years to recuperate,” before he’d even THINK of going back to work.

An email sent to Donald Трамп Jr. last year stated that a Russian lawyer had “compromising” information about Hillary Clinton as “part of a Russian government effort” to help the Трамп campaign, The New York Times reported Monday. This email was part of the reason Трамп met with the attorney.

The White House said that since the story was about emails, it’s clear that Hillary Clinton must have been involved.
————

Russian lawyer  Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Трамп Jr. during the presidential campaign, denied that she had any connection to the Kremlin and insists she met with President Donald Трамп’s son to press her client’s interest in the Magnitsky Act — not to hand over information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Natalia Veselnitskaya is best known as a strong supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and as the personal lawyer for Denis Katsyv, who has paid out millions of dollars in the wake of money-laundering cases brought by authorities in the U.S. and Israel. Some of the financial-crime cases brought against Katsyv allege that his company profited from the $230 million fraud uncovered by Sergei Magnitsky, a lawyer who was beaten to death while in Russian custody. The beating death of Sergei Magnitsky is what led to the US Magnitsky Act.

“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Veselnitskaya said through an interpreter.

No one is sure if it’s better that Veselnitskaya was trying to press Donald Трамп Jr, Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner to overturn a US anti-Russian money-laundering law.

In other news, it turns out that the ICBM that North Korea launched last week may not be as international as was initially reported by the North Korean government. According to the Yonhap news agency in South Korea, no one has been able to independently verify whether last week’s launch successfully re-entered the atmosphere.

North Korea is planning to claim that the missile actually struck the coast of Alaska. Sarah Palin will later report that she saw the missile strike her backyard, which is why we need to fund the wall along the Mexico border.

A recent New York Times story detailed a 2016 meeting between Donald Трамп Jr., registered foreign agent and Putin lackey Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and said that a 2016 meeting between himself and  Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who has deep ties with the Kremlin. According to Трамп Jr. the meeting was primarily about “adoptions” but came with a promise that Veselnitskaya had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. On Saturday, Трамп Jr (who had previously denied he had any meeting with anyone from Russia), confirmed that he had the meeting, and that he was annoyed that it was about ‘adoptions’ and not the aforementioned dirt on Hillary Clinton.

It’s unclear at this time what Трамп Jr will say later today after people realize that he confirmed that he had met with a Russian national with ties to the Kremlin who was promising to interfere in the 2016 election.

A Whittier wildfire tore through the Los Padres National Forest in western California on Sunday and destroyed a Boy Scouts camp, killing all of the animals in its nature center. The fire started on Saturday and jumped across Highway 154, and grew to about 7,800 acres, incident commanders said Sunday afternoon.

After being briefed on the fire, popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп said, “See, that’s news. That’s actual news, not like that fake news about Donald Jr. meeting with the Russians, along with Jared, which they did by the way, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s such a witch hunt. You know what’s a wildfire? The fake media reporting on my family, that’s a wildfire that killed Boy Scouts. That’s what the media does, they kill boy scouts. I bet they won’t report on that!”

A truck driver who blew the whistle on job conditions at his employer to USA Today was fired the day after the first story was published.

Rene Flores said he regularly broke the law as a port trucker in southern California, hauling shipping containers up to 20 hours straight between Long Beach and Phoenix. He kept a fake logbook tucked beneath his seat so regulators wouldn’t know he was violating federal fatigue laws for commercial truckers. It was the only way he could make enough money to pay for his truck and earn a living. Flores told USA Today that his managers at Morgan Southern knew about his hours, but for years the trucking company looked the other way.

After being briefed on the story, popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп said, “I’m just like that guy. I’m exactly like that guy. You talk to the media, you get screwed. And I’m working like a maniac. LIKE A MANIAC. Everyone thinks I’m golfing all the time, believe me, I’m golfing way, way less than I did with my old company. You know who’s not a golfer? Junior. Nope. He likes to go do that big game hunting stuff with his brother. That’s his thing. But do you hear about those animals that are constantly trying to kill him? Nope. The media just screws me, screws my whole family, all the time. ALL THE TIME. Where’s my ice-cream?”

Thursday, popular vote loser, Russian-sponsored Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп again defended his position that interference in the 2016 US Election was just a hoax and didn’t happen. At 10:01 AM on June 22, 2017, Трамп tweeted, “…Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the DHS offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election). It’s all a big Dem HOAX!”

Later on June 22, 2017, the Washington Post reported something that many American already knew, that Vladimir Putin personally ordered interference in the 2016 US Election to help elect Donald Трамп to the U.S. Presidency. Putin feels that a Трамп presidency weakens the United States.

In response to that story, Трамп then tweeted yesterday at 8:43PM on June 23, 2017 that, “The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?”

So, two days ago, Russian interference in the election was a hoax, but then yesterday, yes it did happen but it’s all Obama’s fault.

In related news, several White House staffers are threatening to quit over Donald Трамп’s farting habits. One anonymous staffer said, “The guy comes into a room, farts, then blames one of us for the fart. He also doesn’t flush, and it’s gross.”

At this time, the President denies that he uses the bathroom.

Speaking of white nationalism, did you hear the latest on that front from the regime of popular vote loser, Russian-sponsored Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп? The Трамп regime has taken away funding for a group countering white nationalism.

Life After Hate is a group trying to help people get away from white nationalist terrorist organizations in the United States. In the final days of the Obama administration, the Department of Homeland Security, through their Counter Violent Extremism (CVE) program, granted Life After Hate $400,000 to help their work.

But after President Трамп was sworn in, the funding for the group was never delivered and the group was removed from the CVE program.

When asked to explain how this happened, a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security said, “Well, it’s awkward to fund a program like that when you’ve got a white nationalist like Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III leading the Justice Department. So we–” Agents of HYDRA quickly stormed the room, threw a smoke bomb, and removed the spokesperson before they could finish their thought.

The New York Times published a story, strangely in their op/ed section, carefully noting every lie that popular vote loser, Russian-sponsored Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп has told over 2017 so far.

But you know what’s not included in their story? Трамп’s hair. Seriously, every day, he wants us to look at that and assume that it’s not a combover. But it’s so obviously a combover! The omission of this clear lie from the New York Times story demands a correction.

There’s no word yet on when any reporter will ask anyone in the Трамп regime about ComboverGate.

Bloomberg and Ars Technica both reported this morning that election databases and related systems in 39 states, far more than initially reported, were attacked by Russian hackers during the 2016 election. The attacks all intruded into systems storing information about voter rolls, and tried to delete or modify voter registration data to disrupt voting on Election Day.

Wisconsin, which went for popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп by just over 20,000 votes, purged 200,000 Democratic voters (primarily African-Americans) from its rolls. Most of the voter suppression was accomplished via draconian voter ID laws. But the new revelation about direct Russian hacking raises a far more sinister possibility in that state.

When asked about this, a White House aide rolled her eyes and said, “Duh, how else would  Трамп have eked out those victories in a few key states by just over 70,000 votes?”

The aide was then quickly taken away by agents of HYDRA after Jared Kushner dropped a smoke bomb.

Serial fabulist and white supremacist Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the current Attorney General of the United States, is scheduled to speak to the Senate Intelligence committee at 2.30pm EST today, to answer questions about various lies he told in relation to meetings he had with Russia in an open session.

Senate Republicans meanwhile are working behind closed doors to take away health care from millions of Americans.

Senate Republicans are hoping they can draw out their questions to Sessions, to both make it appear that he didn’t lie and to give more cover to their colleagues trying to take away health care.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein affirmed his support for Russia special counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday, despite recent suggestions that President Trump was weighing Mueller’s dismissal.

“Director Mueller is going to have the full independence he needs to conduct that investigation,” Rosenstein said. Rosenstein went further and said he would only be able to fire Mueller for good cause.

As a reminder, Rosenstein wrote the memo explaining the good cause for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Aides say that Rosenstein may change his mind later depending on how hard popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп tries to shake his hand later today.

The homepage of CNN.com decided to run an op/ed from Alice Stewart, the former communications director for ‘Lyin’ Ted Cruz. As you may remember, ‘Lyin’ Ted Cruz is a nickname that popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп gave the Senator. Stewart’s op/ed focused on testimony given by former FBI Director James Comey to the Senate Intelligence Committee in open session.

Stewart goes on to say that Comey was a credible witness, also noted that yes, Comey told Трамп that he was not being personally investigated over ‘salacious’ details from a memo released about him (i.e., Трамп was not being investigated for things he paid people to do in a hotel room in Russia to a bed that the Obama’s once slept in), but that ultimately, he didn’t do anything wrong.

Stewart apparently missed this exchange with Senator Angus King during the testimony, regarding the President’s request that Comey stop the investigation into connections between General Michael Flynn and Russia.

King: In his press conference May 18th, the president responded, quote, “No, no,” when asked about asking you to stop the investigation into general Flynn. Is that an accurate statement?

Comey: I don’t believe it is.

Somehow, many Republicans, Conservatives and CNN missed this part of the debate. In other words, Flynn said that President Трамп impeded an investigation into a national security issue, which is the connection between Michael Flynn and Russia. 

CNN’s New Motto: Hey, it’s 2017, we still miss the important details! What about her emails, am I right?

In related news, CNN correspondent Alice Stewart was seen huffing gasoline fumes in the ladies room at CNN shortly after her op/ed piece was published.

The United Kingdom is in political turmoil after Prime Minister Theresa May lost the majority in Parliament, forcing her to ally with a small group of extremely conservative lawmakers to retain her position. May called the General Election as a way to grow her majority, to give her better bargaining power with the European Union as Brexit talks begin in 10 days.

Instead, her position in those talks is weakened, as no one is certain what kind of negative effect her blundering will have on the complex talks with the EU.

Reports say that Brits were envious of the political chaos the United States is experiencing, and are hopeful this new mess will help them feel as anxious as their friends across the pond.

Speaking of Russian security concerns, did you hear what happened to Britney Spears? The comments section of her Instagram account was used to by bots to communicate with malware infected computers.

This is how it works. Bot A infects a computer with malware that steals personal information. Bot B leaves a comment of praise on the famous social media account, then leaves a coded message indicating where to send stolen information. The malware infected computer then scans the comment section of that famous social media account, then uses the coded message to determine where to send the information. The whole operation is completely automated.

So, just FYI, now the Russian bots are taking our hacking jobs! Is nothing safe from automation?

Anyway, when asked for a comment on its activities, the bot reportedly said, “bleep blorp bleep bleep,” then stole the reporter’s credit card.

The reporter will be replaced with a new automated content writer sometime next week.

You know that scene in Aliens, where Ripley is explaining to executives at Weyland-Yutani what happened to the Nostromo? She tells them about the derelict ship, the eggs, the Alien, and how it killed everyone. The executives have trouble following the story, and then Ripley just looks at them and says, “Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?” 

That’s what keeps rolling through my head as I read the news today. The part that everyone seems to want to ignore about Comey’s testimony is that he confirmed that there was obstruction of justice; the President wanted Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn, then fired Comey when he wouldn’t. 

It doesn’t matter what you intend, it matters what you do, when it comes to obstruction of justice. It’s like speeding. Just because you didn’t mean to speed, if you were speeding, you were speeding. 

Anyway, when it comes to CNN especially this morning, it looks like yes, indeed, IQs did drop sharply.

A devastating terrorist attack in London Saturday night left many dead and others wounded. The situation was handled by local police, with anti-terrorism forces in the United Kingdom quickly investigating root causes. Most of the world offered condolences, statements of solidarity, and acted appropriately. But not everyone!

When London Mayor Sadiq Khan, still dealing with an evolving situation in the wake of the terrorist attack which killed seven people, told the people of his city to there was no cause for alarm due to the increased presence of Metropolitan Police, popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп completely misconstrued the statement and went on a Twitter tirade.

Трамп tweeted, “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!” Apparently Трамп still doesn’t understand that keeping people calm in a crisis is part of good leadership.

In the immediate aftermath, ride-sharing company and dumpster fire Uber also reacted to the situation in a ham-fisted way, introducing surge pricing in the wake of the attack that increased taxi prices to over twice their normal prices. One user on Twitter said, “Hey @Uber — you’re really going to surge price x2.1 during a terrorist attack in #London???” said one Twitter user. “Lower than low.”

In related news, television personality Bill Maher reportedly expressed relief that the weekend ended with someone worse than him in the headlines, although it’s important to note that Bill Maher is still a garbage person.

————

Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп used the attack on London to promote his own political agenda in the United States on Twitter, including a renewed call for his Travel Ban. Трамп said, “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety.”

Meanwhile, attorneys fighting for his policy to bar Muslim refugees from entering the United States have specifically been calling the effort a, “Travel Pause” and have been arguing that the effort is not a Travel Ban, which would be discriminatory and illegal.

The ACLU noticed this, and Tweeted to Трамп, “Glad we both agree the ban is a ban.”

Boy, it feels like a month ago that we were all just laughing about #Covfefe, doesn’t it? Oh Twitter, I like you, but you’re not the place for sensible political and foreign policy from human paraquats like Donald Трамп.

————

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) appeared on Face the Nation this morning to offer commentary on ousted former FBI Director James Comey’s upcoming testimony to the Senate Intelligence committee.

“It would be unthinkable,” said Senator Warner, if President Trump pressured former FBI Director James Comey to back off an investigation of his former national security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Also unthinkable, the idea that the President of the United States would pull the US out of the Paris Climate Accords, Tweet hamfisted idiocy in the middle of the night during an ongoing terrorist attack, or be named “Donald Трамп” but, hey, it’s all happening!

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
http://www.cc.com/video-clips/8gpcf5/the-daily-show-with-jon-stewart-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.’”
