The Rude Pundit asks pump truppets a question

Trump_gifSomething I’ve wondered since Jan. 20 about those who backed the Lügenorange.

Does any of this embarrass you? Any of the shit with Michael Flynn and Russia? Any of the ridiculous things Trump says, like threatening to “destroy the career” of a state legislator? Any of the ludicrous comments and promises he makes? His complete lack of understanding of the way the government actually functions? His complete lack of knowledge about the United States’s relationships with other countries? The disastrous and unnecessary military mission in Yemen? The fact that he is literally doing the things he said he was going to do, like tearing families apart? The demonstrable lies? Does any of it make a dent with you?

But he comes up with the same answer I do:

I realized that it doesn’t.

So what’s left?

Shame is a powerful tool. We need to deploy it more and make Trump’s ardent supporters feel like outcasts for denying reality.

Who the world is now asking to alter U.S. policy

MOSCOW (AFP) – Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to help stop the United States moving its embassy to Jerusalem, a top Palestinian official said Friday.
Saeb Erekat said he had passed on the message from Abbas to Putin during a visit to Moscow during which he met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“The letter asks President Putin to do what he can about the information we have that President-elect Donald Trump will move the embassy to Jerusalem, which for us is a red line and dangerous,” Erekat said.
On Friday the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem used his sermon at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound to say the embassy move would represent an “assault” on Muslims across the globe.
According to Mohammad Shtayyeh, a senior Palestinian official and Fatah central committee member, the Palestinian leadership has been informed by diplomatic contacts that Trump could call for the move in his inauguration speech on January 20.

So the world is convinced that Vlad can keep his little pony in check. Oh, and this story appeared on Breitbart News, the official news outlet for President-elect Hooker Piss.

From the Washington Post:

Russia carried out a comprehensive cyber campaign to sabotage the U.S. presidential election, an operation that was ordered by Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and ultimately sought to help elect Donald Trump, U.S. intelligence agencies concluded in a remarkably blunt assessment released Friday.

The report depicts Russian interference as unprecedented in scale, saying that Moscow’s role represented “a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort” beyond previous election-related espionage.

The campaign initially sought to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, “denigrate” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and damage her expected presidency. But in time, Russia “developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump” and repeatedly sought to artificially boost his election chances.

Here’s the link to the full government report. It’s for everyone who cares about this country (which means it isn’t for pump truppets who only want a government modeled after 1930s Berlin.)

Making an enemies list. Checking it twice.

Lügenorange is coming to town.

Welcome to 2017, where the president-elect openly states he’s watching his enemies in America:

And praises his best buddy in Russia:

Thanks, pump truppets.

And while you’re at it, keep betraying your country by electing Republicans who love the strength of the Lügenorange’s master. Because people who’ve been oppressed by Putin are watching us:

Mitch McConnell is a Russian stooge

We’re now getting into treason territory:

The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.

Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances.

The Obama White House sought bipartisan support to go public with this information before the election, but a certain Republican senator from Kentucky wouldn’t back our country:

In September, during a secret briefing for congressional leaders, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) voiced doubts about the veracity of the intelligence, according to officials present. …

The Democratic leaders in the room unanimously agreed on the need to take the threat seriously. Republicans, however, were divided, with at least two GOP lawmakers reluctant to accede to the White House requests.

According to several officials, McConnell raised doubts about the underlying intelligence and made clear to the administration that he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.

Mitch McConnell has done more to undermine this country in the past eight years than any Republican in history. Remember, after the complete destruction of our economy during the administration of George W. Bush (the Dumber), while President Obama was looking for a solution to get us out of the Republican created mess, McConnell said this:

And now, he sold our our country out to the Russians so they could make Donald Trump president.

So what was the payoff for McConnell?

Former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao was nominated on Tuesday by President-elect Donald Trump to head the Department of Transportation. …

The wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Chao is the first Asian-American woman to hold a Cabinet-level position.

Meanwhile, people in Kentucky keep reelecting the 21st century’s Benedict Arnold to the Senate.
