......Oh for fuck's sake.



Both my grandmother and my grandfather were summoned to the local offices of the NKVD and asked to defend themselves against charges that they were "enemies of the state."

Had they not fled the country, the best case scenario for them was the fate of the rest of my family, which was to be boarded on to trains and shipped off to Siberia.

The worst case scenario for them was, well, much worse.

4. Soviet style impeachment of Beria.

Arrested and tried in secret and executed.

That is exactly what public televisedhearings are like.

8. The GOP thought enough of the Russians to sit down with them ...



in the Kremlin on our Independence Day.

Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) led the eight-member delegation along with Sens. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), John Kennedy (R-La.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and John Thune (R-S.D.), and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Tex.). All rethuglicans.

10. This should be retitled.

On July 4th, 2017, Republican congressmen renounce Independence and swear their fealty to Putin.

12. Steve Goebbels.

That certainly qualifies as a "big lie." His Fuhrer should be proud of him.

13. What? Are you expecting Republicans to traffic in facts and the law?

They've already done a quick analysis and determined that reality isn't their friend or ally in this matter. So it's going to smears, innuendo, and outright lies.

When the entire GOP is controlled by the Russians.
