This will be so, so tremendous, so big league.
WHAT’S IN IT?: Each TRUMPISTAN WATCH is handcrafted in small batches and is broken down into several components. If you subscribe as opposed to read online, you receive a brief intro which usually includes a plea for collective sanity and some pocket change as well as cajoling you to tell others to subscribe as well. Each TRUMPISTAN WATCH contains several of the following highly skimmable components. Keep in mind this was initially created to motivate civil servants and members of the national security community to not lose heart, that they have the support of the American people who need them to desperately stay on the job and help avert bigger catastrophe. It’s like a dispatch from the Embassy of Relative Sanity:
- ON THE AGENDA
- INVESTIGATIONS, INVESTIGATIONS
- KNOW YOUR ENEMY
- DISINFO WARS
- TOWARDS A PEACEFUL NUCLEAR EXCHANGE
- RADIO MOSCOW: STORIES FROM THEIR PRESS AND OURS
- RESISTANCE ADVICE
WARNING: Welcome to Dr. Strangelove in real life. We are now in month seven since “the Great Day of Patriotic Devotion,” Trump’s Inauguration January 20, 2017. We may be hurling at breakneck speed into the abyss of a nuclear exchange or a constitutional crisis, or both. By reading what you do here, you may become involved in climbing us out of the abyss. As a result, you surrender a life of sleepwalking comfort. We regret the inconvenience.
REMEMBER: If everything goes white, that isn’t “make America great again,” that’s the nuclear exchange.
BE ADVISED: Humor is the survivor’s antidote to hell. If Trump and Putin cannot be shamed, they can be humiliated while we laugh rather than cower in fear. And remember, Trump and Putin have so very much more to lose than anyone else. Their weaknesses are our strength. And they are so very, very weak!
