    Russians stuffed the ballot box.

    The real CRISIS in the United States:

    Russia had their guy, Paul Manafort, work FOR FREE (despite owing tens of millions of Rubles to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska) in exchange for a promise of regular briefings, polling data, cooperation in manipulating social media data, and other illegal CONspiracy.

    Result? Russia installed their kompromat-laden puppet and now the United States government is shut down, there is rampant chaos, babies are in cages, corruption is at epidemic levels and all wealth is being REDISTRIBUTED from the working people who produce it to the few richest elites who own / invest in the productive resources and the president’s party, complicit in the hostile takeover, does NOTHING to exert their power as a separate but co-equal branch of government and impose real checks and balances.

    Putin wins.

    The first two panels may have been inspired by Carlos Ghosn.

    If you ask me we have our own oligarchs and they live on Wall St; some live in Trump Tower and one lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave – when he’s not at Mar-a-jag off.

    The authoritarian proponents both here and abroad are quite successful in winning over a portion of the populace to have a warm feeling for the resident who they can easily manipulate in their effort to defeat a constitutional democratic republican government of the people, by the people and for the people.

    So Berserkistan is still a Dictatorship even after Trff was overthrown, and is working for Duke? Well, if trump can work for Vlad, I guess anything’s possible…

    Hoover was thought to have dirt on everyone in DC. However, Hoover himself had issues, thought to be in the closet and a cross dresser, not exactly considered the image of a G-man in the era in which he lived.

    Suddenly, irony isn’t all that amusing. We have received a wake up call as a country. Please wake up all.

    The award should go to Traitor Trump for his amazing work on behalf of Russia. He and his crime family win the distinction not only of being traitors, but actual quislings!

    It takes a real talent to paint yourself into a corner when you work in an oval office.

    ‘This is the biggest political story ever’—experts react to the Trump-Russia FBI investigation. Trump actively sought to Hide details of his Putin Meetings.

    WaPo: Trump concealed details of his conversations with Putin from senior officials.

    Poor Donnie Trump is Crying Into the Wilderness: ‘There’s Almost Nobody in the White House But Me’!

    What really tics me is that so many of us have known about the whole thing for so long. We all saw the same stuff that the FBI saw. How anyone of normal intelligence could have failed to understand it is beyond me. And most especially, much of the blame lies at the feet of the “msm” who failed to blow the whistle on this criminal traitor. Why is this con man still in office?

    and that’s the MOST “charitable” interpretation of the whole biz. I blame the Supreme Court of 2000. Despite the Obama respite, it’s been downhill from there.

    Almost seeing Duke’s eyes in the first panel weirded me out. In all these decades, I don’t recall anything but his dark glasses, and this near-glimpse of his face makes him look (to me) like a somewhat vulnerable human being. Egad!

    “You have a Republic if you can keep it”. (May not be the exact quote of Ben Franklin?

    “Your grandchildren will be speaking Russian”. Nikita Kruschev, 1960’s.Unless the Republican Senate comes to its senses soon, we are in desperate straits. We have seen illegitimate Trump carry out the Russian agenda since his inauguration and the GOP has been complicit and supportive.

    Interesting that this crowd evidently went into the balloting for the award expecting it to be administered fairly.

    Just read a CNN Headline “Trump says he had a ‘great conversation’ with Putin, calls media reports ‘nonsense’.” It probably went something along these lines.

    VP: So, Mr. President, did you bring the information I want?

    DJT: Yes, it’s all here in a thumb drive Junior loaded for me. Although It doesn’t look like a thumb, more like a cigarette lighter? Oh well, here you go!

    VP: It contains the launch codes? My enemies in the Kremlin? NATO’s nuclear response? The cloaking and weapons capabilities of the UFO at area 51?

    DJT: Yes. Yes. Yes. What?!?! You never said anything about flying saucer stuff! I just found out about it this morning, how do you know about these things?

    VP: I Googled it 20 minutes ago, it’s always fun watching you squirm.

    “… awarded for distinction in lobbying for a foreign dictatorship.”I can’t see Paul Manafort winning this. First, Ukraine isn’t a dictatorship. And it wasn’t ‘much’ of one back when Yanukovich was President. Second, what has been reported of Manafort’s work happened years ago and didn’t accomplish much. Hardly distinction, hardly for a dictatorship.
