"Code red".

MORE DISCLAIMERSThe following article is from Thomas L. Friedman writing for the New York Times.

The Field Negro education series continues.  

"Our democracy is in serious danger.

President Trump is either totally compromised by the Russians or is a towering fool, or both, but either way he has shown himself unwilling or unable to defend America against a Russian campaign to divide and undermine our democracy.

That is, either Trump’s real estate empire has taken large amounts of money from shady oligarchs linked to the Kremlin — so much that they literally own him; or rumors are true that he engaged in sexual misbehavior while he was in Moscow running the Miss Universe contest, which Russian intelligence has on tape and he doesn’t want released; or Trump actually believes Russian President Vladimir Putin when he says he is innocent of intervening in our elections — over the explicit findings of Trump’s own C.I.A., N.S.A. and F.B.I. chiefs.

In sum, Trump is either hiding something so threatening to himself, or he’s criminally incompetent to be commander in chief. It is impossible yet to say which explanation for his behavior is true, but it seems highly likely that one of these scenarios explains Trump’s refusal to respond to Russia’s direct attack on our system — a quiescence that is simply unprecedented for any U.S. president in history. Russia is not our friend. It has acted in a hostile manner. And Trump keeps ignoring it all.
Up to now, Trump has been flouting the norms of the presidency. Now Trump’s behavior amounts to a refusal to carry out his oath of office — to protect and defend the Constitution. Here’s an imperfect but close analogy: It’s as if George W. Bush had said after 9/11: “No big deal. I am going golfing over the weekend in Florida and blogging about how it’s all the Democrats’ fault — no need to hold a National Security Council meeting.”
At a time when the special prosecutor Robert Mueller — leveraging several years of intelligence gathering by the F.B.I., C.I.A. and N.S.A. — has brought indictments against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups — all linked in some way to the Kremlin — for interfering with the 2016 U.S. elections, America needs a president who will lead our nation’s defense against this attack on the integrity of our electoral democracy.

What would that look like? He would educate the public on the scale of the problem; he would bring together all the stakeholders — state and local election authorities, the federal government, both parties and all the owners of social networks that the Russians used to carry out their interference — to mount an effective defense; and he would bring together our intelligence and military experts to mount an effective offense against Putin — the best defense of all.

What we have instead is a president vulgarly tweeting that the Russians are “laughing their asses off in Moscow” for how we’ve been investigating their interventions — and exploiting the terrible school shooting in Florida — and the failure of the F.B.I. to properly forward to its Miami field office a tip on the killer — to throw the entire F.B.I. under the bus and create a new excuse to shut down the Mueller investigation.

Think for a moment how demented was Trump’s Saturday night tweet: “Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign — there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!”

To the contrary. Our F.B.I., C.I.A. and N.S.A., working with the special counsel, have done us amazingly proud. They’ve uncovered a Russian program to divide Americans and tilt our last election toward Trump — i.e., to undermine the to undermine the very core of our democracy — and Trump is telling them to get back to important things like tracking would-be school shooters. Yes, the F.B.I. made a mistake in Florida. But it acted heroically on Russia. What is more basic than protecting American democracy?

It is so obvious what Trump is up to: Again, he is either a total sucker for Putin or, more likely, he is hiding something that he knows the Russians have on him, and he knows that the longer Mueller’s investigation goes on, the more likely he will be to find and expose it.

Donald, if you are so innocent, why do you go to such extraordinary lengths to try to shut Mueller down? And if you are really the president — not still head of the Trump Organization, who moonlights as president, which is how you so often behave — why don’t you actually lead — lead not only a proper cyberdefense of our elections, but also an offense against Putin.

Putin used cyberwarfare to poison American politics, to spread fake news, to help elect a chaos candidate, all in order to weaken our democracy. We should be using our cyber-capabilities to spread the truth about Putin — just how much money he has stolen, just how many lies he has spread, just how many rivals he has jailed or made disappear — all to weaken his autocracy. That is what a real president would be doing right now.
My guess is what Trump is hiding has to do with money. It’s something about his financial ties to business elites tied to the Kremlin. They may own a big stake in him. Who can forget that quote from his son Donald Trump Jr. from back in 2008: “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets.” They may own our president.


But whatever it is, Trump is either trying so hard to hide it or is so naïve about Russia that he is ready to not only resist mounting a proper defense of our democracy, he’s actually ready to undermine some of our most important institutions, the F.B.I. and Justice Department, to keep his compromised status hidden.

That must not be tolerated. This is code red. The biggest threat to the integrity of our democracy today is in the Oval Office." [Source]

Field,

The obvious reason why Trump is not concerned about Russian meddling is that he welcomed it, knew about it and benefited from it. It just about blows my mind how many righties/republicans are happy enough to admit the truth of Russian meddling and connections but still manage to find in their own minds an impulse to trivialize the gravity of current affairs. Like it just doesn't matter at all.

That said, it is of greater value to present the facts in an unbiased forum of factual information as you have taken great lengths to do.

The mustache of understanding must be having trouble making conversation at high-powered DC cocktail parties again.
Thus the jump from both-siderist rich white guy who doesn't see any relevance his net worth might have on his opinion writing (and gets outraged at your rudeness should you have the unmitigated gall to bring it up) to the juiciest spy novel stuff his assistant could dig up for him on the intertubes.
Fergus won't do or say anything against Putin or Russia because they helped him win.
He's a motherfucking narcissist who worships Roy Cohn's tactics because he thinks they're "tough" and give him clout.
Yes, he may have bumblefucked his way into colluding with the Russian government during his campaign, because why the fuck not? Everyone knew he'd never win, so what difference did it make?
Now he's being manly and tough and fighting off those pansy investigators because now he's the fucking president!
How's that for clout, Roy?
Getting rid of Fergus won't solve the problem, though, Tommy boy.
Fergus didn't get into the position to fuck everything up by himself. And he's not staying there unchecked without the collusion of the goddamn Republicans in congress, who don't give two shits whether he colluded with the Russian government or not because it helped them win too.
I think the fear he is displaying comes mostly from what he doesn't know, not what he's hiding. He doesn't impress me as someone who can keep a secret for longer than his attention span. Like how he admitted to Lester Holt that he fired Comey over the Russia investigation on national TV.
I think he's not sure what the fuck went down during his campaign, and is scared of finding out about it in an indictment, and I think that's a perfectly rational fear.
But to fix the problem, we have to un-gerrymander the districts and get rid of Citizens United and un-ratfuck the VRA again, because the problem is the record number of goddamn Republicans who voted for him in the primaries over sixteen other candidates.
It's not like they didn't know who and what he is.
They have to be represented in the government like everyone else, but in actual proportion to their actual numbers.
When that happens again, they're gone from the levers of power and we can begin the process of cleaning up after their latest fit, again.
Fergus is just the latest symptom of the underlying problem that has been around for a long time, but assholes like Thomas the fuck Friedman have refused to write or talk about because doing so would destroy their both-siderist business model and get in the way of their access to the bastards who are enabling the problem, but get them onto the TV machine and into those DC cocktail parties.

I was riding home from the Sizzler on my motorized scooter last night, my belly full of good, wholesome American food, when I was robbed by three young black males. They knocked me to the ground and rode off with my scooter, laughing all the while; I lay bloody in a ditch. Believe it or not, I was smiling the whole time - I had finally come to understand and love black people, see. They just do what they want! They're not uptight like us pasty pale whites. They don't overthink things; they're not neurotic messes like us. I had finally gotten it. I was happy. Their nappy heads glinted in the evening sun as they drove away.

Then one of the young men came back and stabbed me to death. I died completely at peace. I hope they went to my house afterward and gang-raped my wife to death. Heaven will sure be lonely without her.

Every last one of nearly 25,000 Liberian students fails the university entrance exam:

What are the odds?  If the top .01% were qualified, you'd expect at least 1 to pass.  But nope, apparently the skills/IQ curve is so low that not even 0.01% got over the bar.

You can't attribute this to the "terrible legacy of colonialism".  Liberia was never a colony of any Western power.  It was only a colony of ex-slaves.  Of course, the first thing they did when they got there was to establish plantations and enslave Africans to work them.

Black people are stupid.  You can mask the stupid with affirmative-action admissions and grading, but it all comes out in the wash.

No, but you can attribute it to Liberia having lousy primary and secondary schools, which is a result of the two civil wars that impoverished and pretty much wrecked the country.

Of course, I can count on you to then respond by lying and blaming those civil wars on Africans having an inherently violent nature, ignoring the fact that European history was basically an endless series of bloody white-on-white wars over land and resources.

Man the news just keeps getting better.

Embattled Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens was indicted Thursday on felony invasion of privacy charges in connection with a nude photo he allegedly took of a woman with whom he was having an affair, St. Louis prosecutors said.

Greitens, a Republican who was elected in 2016, has faced a barrage of questions since it was revealed in January that he had an extramarital affair.

In an audio recording released in January by KMOV-TV in St. Louis, a hairstylist told her ex-husband that she'd had an affair in 2015 with Greitens — then philanthropist, now governor — and that he had tied her to home exercise equipment, taken a photo of her naked and threatened to publicly release the image if she ever told anyone about it.

She said Greitens later apologized and said he had deleted the photo.

From the Rude Pundit on the 12th of January;

"But let's get more recent than Ellis Island. By any measure, Liberia has been a terrible place to live for decades. Between horrific wars and horrific disease, it would be kind to just call it a "shithole." That's why hundreds of thousands became refugees and why over 60,000 of those refugees came to the United States in the late 20th and early 21st century. A whole lot of them settled in Staten Island, which, believe it or not, is still a borough of New York City. And many of those go to the college where I teach. I have taught Liberian students for years and they have been, to a person, kind, smart, engaged, and hard-working. And that's because they came from a shithole. Many of them were refugees from that shithole; some of them or their family members were tortured. They embrace the chance they have here (and are often treated like shit here for their efforts)."

Military spending for American defense is up, while belligerent military adventurism is down.

That evil plan the Russian's had for us seems to be pretty popular with American voters. Trump's approval rating is 5 points higher than Obama's at this point in his administration.

It’ll probably not be long now until these jokers drop a dime on their boss.

So the open question is: What happens if the investigation does not implicate Trump himself in collusion with the Russian ratfuckers (still possible), yet at the same time inadvertently turns up a mountain of other felonies by Trump, such as obstruction of justice, bribery of government officials, tax evasion, illegal business dealings, mafia ties (highly likely, since Trump has a lifetime’s worth of terrible, unethical behavior behind him)?

Cowardly congressional Republicans will not want to impeach him, short of proven acts of treason. It will be up to the public to rise up and force his removal.
