Trump and Putin Sitting In a Tree

That earthquake you feel is Ronald Reagan rolling in his grave. Trump's European vacation put to bed the notion that he is anything other than a Russian agent planted in the presidency by foreign spies for the purpose of destroying the United States and the European alliance from within.

Trump capped the affair with a joint presser with Putin where he attacked American law enforcement and sided with the Russian spymaster/president.

Before today, no President would have dreamt of ambushing American institutions on foreign soil. Trump not only did that, but he did it standing next the leader of a nation that Reagan frequently called an "Evil Empire." There is really no other word to describe the events of today except...

Fire!

My sister-in-law lives in Alpine east of San Diego. She is under mandatory evacuation from a brush fire that is approaching her neighborhood.  It is fucking SoCal fire season.

The Republican Nazi Candidate

In 1980, Tom Metzger won the Democratic primary for California's 43rd Congressional district with a little more than a third of the votes cast. Many credited his win to his ballot description as a "small business owner." A more accurate description was "Grand Wizard, Ku Klux Klan."

In 2018, proud American Nazi Arthur Jones was unanimously nominated as the Republican candidate for the Illinois 3rd Congressional district.

The Illinois Republican Party has denounced Jones and has said they want some Republican to run a write-in campaign. It is likely no one will. No Republican ran against him in the primary or signed up as a third party candidate because no one wanted to taint their Trumpian creds by opposing a white nationalist.

In 1980, the Democratic Party was quick to denounce Metzger and endorsed the Republican, Clair Burgener, in the general election. With the support of both parties, Burgener won a resounding victory.

What Illinois Republicans have steadfastly refused to do is endorse Jones' Democratic opponent, Dan Lipinski. In the end, the Republican Party will weakly embrace their Jew hating, Holocaust denying candidate because "the worst Republican is better than any Democrat."

Update: Ten Cruz has called for Republicans to vote for Democrat Lipinski. So far, he is the only Republican in the country to take that stand.

Update 2: Fulfilling my prediction, Republican governor Bruce Rauner adamantly refuses to endorse the Democrat even when the Republican candidate is an open Nazi.

The First Concentration Camp

Dachau
The first concentration camp in Nazi Germany was at Dachau, founded in 1933 just weeks after Hitler became Chancellor. Its purpose was to house political prisoners, liberals and communists, for "reeducation." Its location in Bavaria was chosen because it was where Nazi support was strongest and the local population was unlikely to protest. It evolved, in time, into a forced labor death camp.

The first concentration camp specifically for murdering those the Nazis deemed subhuman, like Jews, was Auschwitz–Birkenau. Auschwitz was opened in 1940 in occupied Poland to hold Polish political prisoners. The Birkenau extermination camp annex was built in 1941. Fully operational, it could kill and cremate 20,000 people in a day.

The Tower of Evil

There are several levels to the evil that is the Republican Party's immigration crimes.

Base - Craven Cowards
The majority of Republicans in Congress know that what is being done to immigrant families is evil. Yet they stay silent. They are afraid to say so either in public or in private. They are terrified of confronting their god-king Trump over what they know is wrong. They cower in hiding to avoid being asked questions and, if questions are asked, they babble some incoherent nonsense and scurry away.

First Level - the Sociopaths
By definition, sociopaths are incapable of human emotions like compassion or empathy. They can fake it sometimes, awkwardly. Their attempts to fake compassion are rehearsed and lack the natural humanity of you or I. An obvious example is DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen whose stilted bureaucrat-speak efforts at sympathy would be funny if they were not so clearly evil.

Second Level - the Psychopaths
Psychopaths are capable of something resembling human feelings in that they exalt in orgasmic glee at the suffering of others. Take Corey Lewandowski, who couldn't suppress a joyful laugh at the torment of a Down Syndrome child ripped from her mother by Border Patrol and thrown into the terror of caged confinement. 

Third Level - the Architects of Evil
Stephen Miller crafted the plan to address the Hispanic Problem in the same way that Adolf Eichmann designed the solutions to the Jewish Problem. First dehumanize them by calling them animals, vermin, and infestations. Then deport them. Then imprison them in inhuman camps. The final solution, of course, is to murder them.

The Spire
Atop the spire at the apex of the tower sits the god-king. Call him Hitler or Trump or Pol Pot or Satan, he is the fount of all evil.  All beneath him bathe in the vile corruption that flows from him.

Kirstjen, She Wolf of ICE

The blond hair, distinctly Aryan features, and aggressive defense of obscene cruelty toward children, DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen fits the title role of a softcore porn movie of the of the 1970's.
Ilsa is every so loosely based on a real life female concentration camp guard, Ilse Koch, known as the Witch of Buchenwald. Koch would select prisoners and order them killed because she wanted to add their tattoos to her collection. She would walk provocatively in front of male prisoners and viciously beat any who looked at her.

Koch received a life sentence from a West German court for her crimes against humanity. In her later years she was tormented by delusions that the ghosts of her concentration camp victims would attack her in her cell. She committed suicide to escape her ghosts.

Which leads me to wonder, how well does Kirstjen Nielsen sleep? In her sleep, does she hear the crying children she ignores while awake?
