NUMBER OF STORIES ABOUT NEWS THAT DOESN’T SUCK: 12
(denoted with a *)
$109 MILLION IN CASH FROM POST-SOVIET BUYERS TO TRUMP PROPERTY
McClatchy reports, “Aleksandr Burman, a Ukrainian who engaged in a health care scheme that cost the federal government $26 million and was sentenced to a decade in prison, paid $725,000 cash for a condo at a Trump Tower I in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. in 2009. Leonid Zeldovich, who has reportedly done extensive business in the Russian-annexed area of Crimea, bought four Trump units outright at a cost of more than $4.35 million, three of them in New York City between 2007 and 2010.” McClatchy continues, “And Igor Romashov, who served as chairman of the board of Transoil, a Russian oil transport company subject to U.S. sanctions, paid $620,000 upfront for a unit at a building adorned with the future U.S. president’s name in Sunny Isles Beach in 2010.” McClatchy adds, “Buyers connected to Russia or former Soviet republics made 86 all-cash sales — totaling nearly $109 million”. Additional all cash buyers in Sunny Isles include, “The all-cash buyers include Alexey Ustaev, founder of a private bank based in St. Petersburg, Russia; Igor Zorin, a government official who runs a state-owned broadcasting company; the wife of hockey player Viacheslav Fetisov; pop star Igor Nikolaev; Roman Sinyavsky, a luxury real estate broker who was one of the first to sell units at a Trump’s South Florida building and Evgeny Bachurin, who Russian President Vladimir Putin fired as head of Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency before becoming a donor to a political action committee supporting Trump, according to American Bridge.” Then there are the over-payments which are highly suggestive money laundering as, “a Florida-registered LLC, Unit 1101 Holdings, tied to Vadim Sachkov, paid $1.4 million for a unit in Trump Tower I in 2016 though the assessed market value was $1.2 million, according to the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser. In another case, Natalia Sivokozova spent $1.3 million for a unit in Trump Royale in 2016, though the assessed market value was $923,803, according to the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser.” Then we have those with outright “questionable backgrounds” including:
– “Anatoly Golubchik was found guilty in 2013 of operating a sports betting ring for a Russian-American organized crime group, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. He purchased a unit in Trump Tower I for $830,000 in 2010, according to the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser.”
– “Peter Kiritchenko, a Ukrainian businessman who prosecutors accused of laundering tens of millions of dollars alongside that country’s former prime minister Pavel Lazarenko. He pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of stolen property and testified against Lazarenko, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s for the North District of California. Kiritchenko’s daughter, Lidia, paid $1.25 million for a unit in Trump Tower II in 2013, acording to the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser.”
– “Eduard Nektalov, a Uzbeki diamond dealer was arrested on charges he laundered drug money before he was killed in New York, according to multiple news reports. He purchased a unit at Trump World Tower for $1.6 million in 2003, according to the New York City Department of Finance.”
– “The Sivokozov family, which has ties to organized crime, according to various Russian media reports. Patriarch Vasily Sivokozov was director of a Russian bank whose license was revoked, according to the reports. His son, Igor, went into business with a Russian-American criminal who had been convicted of fraud. Igor Sivokozov and his daughter, Natalia, paid $660,000 for a unit in Trump Royale in 2015 though the assessed market value was $483,223. Natalia Sivokozova bought two units at Trump Royale, one in 2015 for $675,000 — which had an assessed market value of $534,630 — and another for $1.3 million — which had an assessed market value of $923,803 — in 2016. Her sister, Ksenia Sivokozova, paid $675,000 for a fourth unit in 2015, though it had a market value of $474,474.”
The more we look back at 2016, the more we can only describe what the press did as egregious journalistic malpractice by ignoring Trump’s mafia ties + treating the whole fascistic escapade as a reality show. And now we have children in internment camps because consequences.
* NY SUES TRUMP OVER KIDDIE INTERNMENT CAMPS
Axios reports, “New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that the state intends to file a ‘multi-agency lawsuit’ against the Trump administration ‘for violating the Constitutional rights of immigrant children and their families who have been separated at the border.’” So when the courts rule citizens have no rights as they have for a generation now, get ready for stage seven of genocide everyone! You think this stage six: preparation episode of the reality show is sad, wait until stage seven: extermination! It’s a total fucking bummer. That is if you, like, have a pulse and stuff. Put on “The Bachelor” now! Look away!! It won’t go away, but you have choices and will feel better besides you will be ready for the final stage of genocide then, denial! Collective disease of brain rot! Choices, people!!!
* MICHAEL COHEN READY TO TALK NOW, MAYBE, HIRES NEW LAWYER
CNN reports, “Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen has signaled to friends that he is ‘willing to give’ investigators information on the President if that’s what they are looking for, and is planning on hiring a new lawyer to handle a possible indictment from federal prosecutors.” They already have his life and we already have all the preparations in place for genocide, so now, sure, like whatever. CNN adds, “Cohen is planning to hire Guy Petrillo, a former chief of the criminal division of the US attorney’s office in Manhattan and an experienced trial lawyer”. CNN notes, “The shift in legal strategy and signals of potential cooperation with investigators come as Cohen feels increasingly isolated from the President, whom he has been famously loyal to for more than a decade.” Do not imagine this is anything so self-righteous as better me in a cage than the kids. No fucking way, he wants a deal and to see the light of day again. CNN adds, “Petrillo is a well-respected former prosecutor who has ties to the same US attorney’s office that is investigating Cohen. He was an assistant US attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1990 until 1997. While there he overlapped with Robert Khuzami, the deputy US attorney overseeing the Cohen raid.”
* ERIK PRINCE SAYS HE COOPERATED WITH MUELLER
The Daily Beast reports, “Erik Prince, the founder of private security company Blackwater, has found himself embroiled in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. During the campaign, Prince reportedly met at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., operative George Nader, and social media specialist Joel Zamel to discuss a potential pro-Trump social media influence operation. He also met with Russian sovereign wealth fund manager Kirill Dmitriev during the transition period—a meeting reportedly planned to set up a backchannel between the Trump administration and Russia. Those revelations raise questions about his relationship to the Trump administration—questions Mueller is reportedly investigating.” He is also the brother of numbskull Besty DeVos, ostensibly the Education Secretary of this idiocracy. Prince tells The Daily Beast, “I have spoken voluntarily to Congress and I also cooperated with the special counsel.” But did he tell the truth – that is a totally separate question! And you know, he never answers just blames the fake news media for reporting that which he did not say. He also concedes that John Bolton may be more willing to privatize military operations in Afghanistan and takes a poo on Mattis because Prince is no patriot.

FBI AGENT STRZOK REPEATEDLY ATTACKED BY TRUMP ESCORTED OUT
CBS News reports, “FBI agent Peter Strzok was escorted from the FBI amid disciplinary proceedings against him over anti-Trump text messages.” Pretty soon Trump will run out of foils and need to either resign or be escorted out himself. CBS News adds, “Strzok and Page worked on both the Clinton email probe and the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign. They were then assigned to the special counsel’s team, but were removed when the texts were discovered. Page has since left the FBI.” CBS News notes, “Strzok is still employed at the FBI while the disciplinary process plays out.

* CALLS FOR THIS NAZI COCKROACH RONALD MORTENSEN TO WITHDRAW
CNN reports, “A bipartisan pair of senators penned a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging him to withdraw the Trump administration’s nominee to a high-profile role over concerns that he has ‘spread misinformation’ about immigrants and displayed a ‘lack of empathy’ towards refugees.” Why he sounds perfect for the role of leading us into stage seven of genocide: extermination! CNN adds, “In the letter sent Tuesday, Arizona Republican John McCain and Delaware Democrat Chris Coons urged the withdrawal of Ronald Mortensen’s nomination to the position of assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration.” What do these two senators have empathy or something? Go live in Europe! Trumpistan has no use for your empathic tendencies! The death cult GOP will lead us to slaughter!
* POLLS FORCE DEATH CULT GOP TO FIND BALLS (HINT: BELOW THE BELT)
Business Insider reports, “Ted Cruz, a Republican senator from Texas, announced Monday that he would be introducing ‘emergency legislation’ to end the Trump administration’s controversial ‘zero-tolerance’ policy of separating families who arrive at the border illegally.” Someone has checked the polls and noticed that as much as Americans can get their mojo going over racist rhetoric and close their eyes to the everyday brutality of police shootings and mass incarceration, something about children crying after being separated and their beloved death cult GOP being compared to Nazis is not sitting well. Imagine! Don’t worry death cult, by the time dissidents are being disappeared and dropped from airplanes, you will have them cheering and such again! Those long hairs are from Chicago (code: Black). Humanity: it’s only a news cycle deep. Anyways! Business Insider adds, “Cruz’s bill, the Protect Kids and Parents Act, would require that families who either seek asylum or arrive illegally be kept together ‘absent aggravated criminal conduct or threat of harm to the children.’ It would authorise new temporary shelters to accommodate families, and vastly expedite the processing time for asylum cases.” Business Insider notes, “The bill would double the number of federal immigration judges from around 375 to 750 in enable to ensure that all asylum cases can be processed and adjudicated within 14 days. Families who meet the requirements for asylum would be allowed to stay in the country and those who do not would be immediately deported, as a family.” So what does this really tell us? It’s so much worse than we know because Cruz is an über-fascist and he represents Texas and for all we know! We could be killing babies already and our government keeping this from us because all the preparations for a real slaughter are in place now, just as TRUMPISTAN WATCH has been warning FOR OVER A YEAR now. But like, hello, to those of you who have rubbed your eyes awake and can see the horror now! For those of you who haven’t, keep sleeping, after extermination comes denial anyways! You can choose to put on “The Bachelor” at any moment! And hold that comfortable blanket of myths about how America always self-corrects close — you will need it! And here, Cruz is giving you a warm Teddy. Meanwhile, “A bill presented by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ‘Keep Families Together Act,’ has received the support of every single Senate Democrat but no Republicans.”

* SENATE DEMOCRATS WANT TO KNOW WHY FBI LEAKED TO GIULIANI
Reuters reports, “U.S. Senate Democrats on Monday pressed Justice Department officials about whether some FBI agents may have leaked damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Rudy Giuliani, now an adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, shortly before the 2016 election.” Reuters notes, “In response to questions from Democrats during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Chris Wray said his office was ‘aggressively investigating a number of leaks,’ but offered no details.” Reuters adds, “Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s office was still probing possible leaks to Giuliani or other Trump supporters.” Meanwhile Giuliani tells CNN, “he was interviewed by the Department of Justice about comments he made during the 2016 presidential election, claiming there was information to come on Hillary Clinton.”
US QUITS HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL TO PREP FOR FUTURE DATE AT ICC
POLITICO reports, “The United States will withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council, an entity it has long accused of being biased against Israel and giving cover to rights-abusing governments, the Trump administration announced on Tuesday.” Yes, it is true it is a ridiculous thing but nonetheless! But the good news is all the little Nazi cockroaches have come out of the woodwork to fester in support of kiddie internment camps so we know exactly who they are and can work to crush them with our souls and the soles of our shoes in broad daylight! So it goes POLITICO adds, “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, announced the decision, a move that essentially reverts the U.S. to the stance it took during the George W. Bush administration, which declined to join the council. Haley and Pompeo‘s announcement came a day after the U.N.’s human rights chief, in a speech to the council, criticized President Donald Trump’s immigration policy decisions that have led his administration to separate families apprehended after entering the U.S. illegally.” As Haley herself once said, we are taking names!
CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA DATA DOOD DISPUTES FARABOOK OFFICIAL STORY
Bloomberg reports, “Facebook Inc. has explained many times how personal information from as many as 87 million people was collected by a researcher and then sold to Cambridge Analytica, the political consultancy. That researcher has a different version of events, which he plans to outline in testimony to Congress Tuesday.” There has been so minimal press in the U.S. around this, it is as if we do not want to violate the sacred tenants of the twenty first century economy, namely the whole thing rests on bullshit. Bloomberg adds, “Facebook has said Aleksandr Kogan collected user’s data through a personality quiz app called This Is Your Digital Life. But in testimony prepared for Tuesday’s appearance, Kogan said that it was a different app — created earlier and collecting data on fewer people — that was used to gather information for Cambridge Analytica, the U.K. firm that helped elect U.S. President Donald Trump.”
LONGTIME DERIPASKA LOBBYIST VISITED WIKILEAKS’ J-ASS A FUCKTON
The Guardian reports, “A longtime US lobbyist for the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska visited Julian Assange nine times at the Ecuadorian embassy in London last year”. Not just once or twice, mind you, “Adam Waldman, who has worked as a Washington lobbyist for the metals tycoon since 2009, had more meetings with Assange in 2017 than almost anyone else, the records show.” The Guardian notes, “When Deripaska first hired him, in 2009, Waldman’s firm was on a $40,000-per-month retainer.” That makes Waldman a very high priced whore, not that there is anything wrong with that, after all look at who the fake First Lady is. The Guardian adds, “Waldman also served as a counsel for Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov.”

KREMLIN REJECTS PLEAS TO FREE SENTSOV BECAUSE NO HUMANITY THERE
The Moscow Times reports, “The Kremlin said it will not intervene to pardon jailed Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who has been on an indefinite hunger strike for a month and one week seeking the release of Ukrainian political prisoners.” No, the Kremlin would never interfere with the independence of the judiciary! The Moscow Times notes, “Sentsov is serving a 20-year sentence in Russia on charges of plotting terrorist attacks in the Crimean peninsula annexed by Russia from Ukraine.”

* NAVALNY PLANS JULY 1 PROTEST AGAINST RAISING OF PENSION AGE
Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports, “Opposition politician Aleksei Navalny is urging Russians to protest on July 1 against the government’s plan to raise the retirement age, calling it ‘robbery’ and a crime against the citizenry.” Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty notes, “Navalny said supporters have filed requests for permission for public gatherings with the authorities in 20 cities. He called it a nationwide protest but said that, at least for now, applications have not been filed in any of the 11 cities that are hosting matches in the June 14-July 15 soccer World Cup. Most demonstrations are prohibited during the tournament in those cities, which include Moscow and St. Petersburg, and Navalny did not say whether protests were planned in any of them.”

WE’RE TOLD CHILD INTERNMENT CAMPS DON’T MATCH IVANKA’S OUTFIT
CNN reports, “Ivanka Trump met with her father, President Donald Trump, on Tuesday to discuss the images of immigrant families being separated at the US-Mexico border, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told CNN.” She is publicly silent so who cares if she thinks kiddie internment camps do not match her outfit? Daddy could do something, but he will not, so go home, little girl. Also, TRUMPISTAN WATCH always said human cages suited her, unlike so many in the media malpractice crowd who were convinced she would be a moderating force because she was some kind of woman’s rights thing when the only woman she ever cared about was herself and ok maybe, maybe, Wendi Murdoch. If you object to any perceived sexism herein: hold onto your self-righteous ego, she works for a pussy grabber. Also TRUMPISTAN WATCH consistently only uses the gendered “bitch” to refer to men who suck on the tits of power at the expense of morality, because men have always been the bigger bitches in this world, like her Daddy for instance.
LET’S GO AFTER THE DISABLED AGAIN – NAZIS NEVER DID THAT!
USA Today reports, “Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski cynically dismissed concerns about reports that a migrant girl with Down syndrome had been separated from her mother at the southwest U.S. border as a result of the White House’s ‘zero-tolerance’ immigration policy.” The self-conceit of able-bodied Lewandowski, once romantically linked to former Trump shill Hope Hicks, goes so far as to proclaim “Womp, womp,” to “fellow panelist Zac Petkanas during an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night after Petkanas, a Democratic strategist, said he had read about a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome ‘who was taken from her mother and put in a cage.’” Again, thank god the Nazi cockroaches are festering in broad daylight now so we do not have to pretend we do not know who they are. Now the whole world, too, can see the disease that is American bigotry and have no pretense as it finds new models, because this ain’t it. Can’t wait until all the Trumpistani elites are in cages – or worse. TRUMPISTAN WATCH gives fewer fucks about what happens to them than Lewandowski does disabled children.

* TRUMPISTAN WATCH LOVES DEATH CULT GOP INFIGHTING SO MUCH!
The Washington Post reports, “President Trump’s eldest son has abruptly canceled his scheduled appearance at a fundraiser next week for Texas Republican George P. Bush amid escalating tensions between the two political families, a source familiar with the discussions confirmed Tuesday.” Oh, sad! The Washington Post adds, “Donald Trump Jr. was planning to headline a June 25 fundraiser in New York for Bush, the Texas land commissioner running for reelection this fall. But he pulled out after members of the Bush family publicly condemned the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents and detaining them at the border.” Don’t forget Bush II gave us the war on terror, the extraordinary rendition program, enhanced interrogation methods, pretty much normalized the dehumanizing rhetoric that paved the way for Trump, so Laura Bush’s oh my god, think of the children rhetoric and op-ed falls fairly flat on knowing ears now but might open a few eyes before they put on “The Bachelor” again. But this in fighting is sweet, because remember: regimes fall from the inside but only due to external pressure does the internal collapse occur. So keep fighting boys, er, TRUMPISTAN WATCH means Nazi cockroaches. How can you tell they are cockroaches? They cannot distinguish between people and animals and terrorists even because everything is so much bigger than it! Bah-dah-bing! So enjoy this delicious because soon we may all starve thanks to our occupation regime.

* FARABOOK IS NOT COOL ANY MORE BECAUSE FASCISM IS NOT SO MUCH FUN
Business Insider reports, “Students from universities like Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Yale, and Georgia Tech are losing interest in working at Facebook.” Oh that’s so fucking sad! Sucks to look in the mirror, o elites of Trumpistan and tech people in particular, so accustomed, as they are, to feeding at the trough for self-righteous, we are the world bullshit, and see the fascists we are and have become or — at least have made way for through complacency, idiocy and walking around half dead? Business Insider adds, “A new study from education software company Piazza surveyed 150,000 students and found that most engineering and computer-science students are more interested in applying for jobs at companies like Google, Amazon, and Tesla over positions at Facebook.” This is brought to you by consequences and the sociopath Zuck. Meanwhile MIT Technology Review calls it “time to rein in the data barons” and likens them to oil barons only these surveillance capitalists have their own Stasi going as “the data barons are determined to extract as much as possible of a resource that’s central to the economy of their time. The more information they can get to feed the algorithms that power their ad-targeting machines and product-recommendation engines, the better. In the absence of serious competition or (until Europe’s recently introduced General Data Protection Regulation) serious legal constraints on the handling of personal data, they are going to keep undermining privacy in their push to know as much about their users as they possibly can.” MIT Technology Review notes, “Their dominance is allowing them to play a dangerous and outsize role in our politics and culture. The web giants have helped undermine confidence in democracy by underestimating the threat posed by Russian trolls, Macedonian fake-news farms, and other purveyors of propaganda. Zuckerberg at first dismissed claims that disinformation on Facebook had influenced the 2016 election as ‘pretty crazy.’” Zuck: he’s like a Muslim in the era of Saudi terrorism, a scapegoat facing no real consequence beyond reputational! Oh wait, Muslims faced endless prejudice and stereotyping of their faith to this day. But Zuck, he’s the real victim!
RUSSIAN INFILTRATION OF FUNDAMENTALIST US ORGS GOES BACK DECADES
Think Progress asks an important series of questions: “Which conservative religious organizations were targeted by Russian operatives? And who within those organizations proved susceptible to Russian infiltration — or even helped further the Kremlin’s aims?” Think Progress also begins to detangle the truth in the answers as, “A series of interviews and never-before-seen documents, including testimonials and diaries obtained by ThinkProgress, sheds new light on how the relationship between the Religious Right and Russia first began, and how it led to several collaborative efforts in the years to come.” Think Progress notes, “In examining both the individuals and organizations involved, it’s evident that as the 2016 presidential election was heating up, those same Religious Right figures — some affiliated with groups that were reportedly funded by sanctioned Russian officials — went out of their way to defend the Russian regime. Now, with Trump in the White House, relations between Russia and American social conservatives have waned, but they’ve hardly disappeared.” Think Progress begins its tale with Allan Carlson who “never expected a call from anyone in Russia.” Carlson said, “I was contacted out of the blue”. Think Progress notes, “It was the early 1990s, and Carlson had just finished a stint with the Reagan administration’s National Commission on Children when he was contacted by Anatoly Antonov, then a sociology professor at the Lomonosov Moscow State University.” Of course Antonov is now the current Russian mafia state’s Ambassador in Washington. Think Progress adds, “Carlson, a historian known for his work on family policy and a staunch social conservative, faced a sudden, unexpected question: Would he like to visit Russia, and maybe speak with scholars and policy-makers about his work on the so-called ‘natural family’?” And naturally, “Carlson didn’t hesitate.” Think Progress continues, “In time, Carlson’s partnership with Antonov and Victor Medkov, another Russian sociologist, would grow into the World Congress of Families (WCF) — the most prominent Russian-American anti-LGBTQ collaboration to date, and the foremost international anti-LGBTQ organization in the world.” So it goes, “Carlson shared the diary he kept with ThinkProgress,” which is recommended reading. While “Much of the diary is filled with minutiae,” Think Progress notes, “one entry, though — dated January 16, 1995 — Carlson describes the meeting that eventually opened the door for collaboration between American social conservatives and those close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Along with Antonov, Carlson visited the Moscow apartment of Ivan Shevchenko, a man Mother Jones referred to as an ‘Orthodox mystic.’” According to the diary, “He sought help in organizing/recruiting for an international conference on the family planned that summer at an Orthodox monastery, near Moscow.” And, “With that, Carlson, Antonov, and Shevchenko had agreed to the earliest iteration of WCF, which would formally come into being in 1997.” Meanwhile a figure who would become relevant in the NRA’s infiltration, “G. Kline Preston IV was watching the post-Soviet region struggle”. Preston told Thinking Progress, “The thing that attracted Preston to Putin was the ‘rebuilding and building anew of churches in Russia,’” adding Putin was “god sent”. Yeah, barf. Naturally Preston also believes, “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad doesn’t actually gas his own people”.

FARABOOK POSTS OF VAULT7 LEAKER MAKE YOU YEARN FOR OLD DAYS
By contrast to the diary kept by the World Congress of Families’ American co-founder Allan Carlson, we have Vice’s Motherboard reporting that WikiLeaks is now publishing the FARAbook posts of “Joshua Schulte, a former employee of the US National Security and Central Intelligence Agency,” who is accused “of leaking classified information to WikiLeaks on June 18. Schulte is allegedly behind the Vault 7 releases, the largest leak of classified information from inside the CIA.” It’s tragic what has happened to letters in this former USA, not just the country itself, but really the decline of the very practice of literacy – and you can point the finger squarely at social media and a garbage education system for this one. Vice’s Motherboard notes, “On June 19, WikiLeaks posted several undated documents allegedly written by Schulte himself. The documents are a sort of first-person diary chronicling Schulte’s arrest, life in jail, and court appearances. The documents were first published on a Facebook page identified by The Washington Post as belonging to Schulte.” Weep for this generation, these are the “men,” these are their words. You know, at least Nazis had an aesthetic with uniforms designed by Hugo Boss and one of the most literate, educated societies on the planet to work with. What we have are human sloths raised on pornography and TV dinners and god knows what chemical drugs. This one writes like a fourth grader, at least where TRUMPISTAN WATCH went to school, which was admittedly solid throughout. “I feel the adrenaline shoot through my body”. Ugh, tenth grade English teacher Mr. Duffy would be writing “banal” as he was want to all over this shit. Sadly the stupid here is probably totally relatable to a generation of stupid.

CAPITALISM WINS AS BARELY LITERATE UDAY INKS BOOK DEAL
The New York Post’s Page Six reports, “The print world was buzzing this week that Donald Trump Jr. has sold his book”. This is called providing aid and comfort to the enemy whilst demoralizing the rest of us patriots but hey, capitalism wins! Money does not give a fuck who owns it. The New York Post’s Page Six adds, “One said it went for ‘barely $1 million,’ and we heard the buyer was a Hachette imprint.” Meanwhile you do not even want to know how this compares to what TRUMPISTAN WATCH has taken in because you will probably get extra sad and revert to watching porn or Kardashians or whatever.
WHY DIDN’T THIS HAPPEN YET? SHE’S BLOND, WITH TITS + COMES FROM FOX
The Washington Examiner reports, “speculation is turning to who would replace spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, should she leave,” but she is totally not leaving, she said so and you have to take the liars for their word or give them infinite benefit of the doubt! Only the poors and those fleeing for their lives deserve zero benefit of the doubt and zero tolerance! Surprise! The Washington Examiner notes, “The leading candidate is State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.” She is blond, has tits and came to the State Department direct from faux news Fox. The bigger question is why had this not happened already? T Rex was supposedly afraid to fly or travel with her fearing she was a White House spy. Oh, she was part of the landing team of active measures to clear out the Deep State from the State Department, but now that “Vino Vixen” Mari Stoll is there taking names and feckless Pompeo is the top guy, the State Department is deemed sufficiently captured for Heather to move into a role at the White House. Got it! Bring on the tits! TRUMPISTAN WATCH always said that beyond Aryan princess Ivanka, the regime needed more tits. Maybe she could deliver the briefing in a bikini? And before you scream ohmigod this is so sexist how could you, understand and appreciate sarcasm and how much TRUMPISTAN WATCH would rather a woman, any woman with a brain or a man, any man with a brain be in her place instead. Also do we live in the same society? A pussy grabber is president, you do know that?

LAURA INGRAHAM JUST SKIPS AHEAD TO FINAL STAGE OF GENOCIDE: DENIAL
Mediaite reports, “Laura Ingraham is facing harsh criticism over remarks she made in her opening monologue about the separation illegal immigrant families at the southern border.” By “harsh criticism,” Mediaite means outraged media attention, which is the fuel for the reality show that brought us fascism in the first instance! Mediaite adds, “The conditions of the facilities that migrant children are being detained come in a wide range. But the Fox News host insisted that the ones with better conditions, which include education, video games, and various activities, are ‘essentially summer camps.’” So Laura Ingraham is not even waiting for extermination to kick in and is going ahead and skipping right onto stage eight, the final stage of genocide: denial. Good for her! As we say in America, she has chosen her path – a woman who knows what she wants! Lean in, girlfriend!

AFTERWARDS, THEY WILL RUB EACH OTHER IN THEIR OWN SHIT
ESPN reports, “Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter has arrived in Moscow on Tuesday to watch two World Cup games as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin, his spokesman told ESPN Brasil.” How exciting, two of the most corrupt, hideous men in the planet in one place! Note: ladies you are safe in most every other place during these matches, well, relatively speaking, unless you are fleeing for your life and crossing Trumpistan’s southern border, then you may run into issues.
* SPORTSCASTER MENTIONS THE UNMENTIONABLE NAVALNY
Meduza reports, “On June 17, the Russian national soccer team’s former head coach, Leonid Slutsky (not to be confused with the State Duma deputy), made headlines in the independent media for being perhaps the first person to mention anti-corruption activist Alexey Navalny’s name on Pervyi Kanal network television outside a negative context. During a FIFA World Cup game between Germany and Mexico, Slutsky had some fun with the phrase ‘high-pressure soccer’ (which uses an adjective identical to Navalny’s surname), wondering aloud if Navalny plays soccer. ‘That would be interesting to see,’ Slutsky remarked.” And, “Thus a meme was born.” Some notable entries highlighted by Meduza include, “Tunisia is without the ball now. Slutsky: Just like [hunger-striking jailed Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg] Sentsov is without food.” And, “I don’t think there was a foul there. Slutsky: Of course — just like there are no Russian soldiers in Ukraine.” Also, “Tunisia is making a substitution. Slutsky: And we haven’t made any substitutions in 18 years.”

* RESISTANCE ADVICE: METHODISTS SAY METHODS AREN’T JUSTIFIABLE
BuzzFeed reports, “More than 600 clergy and lay leaders from the United Methodist Church have accused Attorney General Jeff Sessions of violating church law in connection to his role in enforcing and promoting US immigration policies, including the separation of immigrant children apprehended with their parents at the US–Mexico border.” BuzzFeed adds, “In a letter Monday, the group said that as a member of the United Methodist church, Sessions had violated the denomination’s Book of Discipline by advocating for and implementing practices that separate young immigrant children from their parents, and called on leaders of the Alabama and Northern Virginia congregations — to which Sessions belongs — to address their formal complaint against the attorney general.” BuzzFeed notes, “Citing Paragraph 2702.3 of the 2016 United Methodist Book of Discipline, the complaint specifically accuses Sessions of child abuse, immorality, and racial discrimination in connection with his support for an array of Justice Department policies on immigration and other issues, including the detention of immigrant children, the decision to refuse asylum to immigrants fleeing gang or domestic violence, and the attorney general’s declared intent to stop investigations into police departments accused of racial discrimination.” Looks like they are tired of all this #winning and want their humanity back. Private Russian Sessions might fire back, “Work makes you free, what’s wrong with that?” After all, old boy thinks Kristallnacht is just a fancy term for something real nice. CNN adds, “Pope Francis has added his voice to those criticizing the Trump administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy that has resulted in the separation of families at the Mexican border.”
* RESISTANCE ADVICE: ¡VERGONZOSO! NAZI NIELSEN TRIES TO EAT MEXICAN
CNN reports, “With chants of ‘shame’ and ‘end family separation,’ protesters shouted at Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she dined at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, DC.” Food is political and while working for a racist regime, like Hope Hicks and Rob Porter before her, Nazi Nielsen thought she could just casually stroll in for some comida mexicana. Or maybe this was just a provocation to further polarize the nation as we straddle stage five and six of genocide?! Who knows! Anyhow CNN adds, “Protesters from the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America came into MXDC Cochins Mexicana, a popular restaurant near the White House, holding signs and confronted Nielsen on Tuesday night.” It seems “After about 10 minutes, Nielsen left the restaurant and got into an SUV.” Just know this Trumpistani elites: you will never be able to eat a quesadilla without being looked at again. Food is political, after all! And note: those working in the restaurant or in the kitchen did not do this; no, they would never give her racist ass impetus or reason. Trust TRUMPISTAN WATCH on this, they know exactly who they would have been serving, too.
