  1. When a supreme court nominee runs into problems with serious allegations of sexual predation, the president orders a sham investigation; a move right out of the playbook of Validimir Putin. As millions of the president's useful idiots (some of whom post right here on MLW!) concoct ridiculous rationalizations, the national law enforcement agency meekly follows the president's orders without a peep. Despite the fact that the nominee has obviously been lying to congress for weeks, he is confirmed anyway. What has happened this week is a stride towards a descent into authoritarianism, American style. With a supreme court justice installed in such a disgraceful and corrupt fashion, what intelligent, thinking person could believe that when he needs to rule on Trump's corruption, he will render and impartial vote towards the verdict? Unlike Russia, we are unlikely to see President Trump become president for life (although the way Trump lives and eats, that's unlikely to be long anyway). The USA is now an oligarchy and Trump is himself the ultimate useful idiot, a reality TV personality playing the role of president. Trump, a sad caricature completely lacking a moral compass who bumbles from issue to issue gathering headlines, makes the billionaires richer with huge tax cuts while simultaneously driving up military spending. The USA is a jet and he's pointed the nose straight down and pushed the throttle to the max. When he leaves or dies, there will be other useful idiots who come along right behind him.
