I'm old enough to remember the NRA trying to argue that...

...the Nazis never would have been able to put Jewish folks in the camps if the Jews had guns...

Anybody else interested in seeing that theory put to the test??

EDIT: I'm talking about giving the migrants at the border a shitload of guns... As a purely academic thought experiment, of course...

Leave. EU (Brexiteers) faces new questions over contacts with Russia

A leader of the Leave.EU campaign suggested sending a “message of support” to the Russian ambassador after the then foreign secretary made a speech that was critical of Russia, documents seen by the Observer suggest.

The material also appears to show that Andy Wigmore, spokesman for the Leave.EU campaign and the business partner of Arron Banks, the biggest funder of Brexit, passed confidential legal documents to high-ranking officials at the Russian embassy and then denied it to parliament.

The documents related to George Cottrell, an aide to Nigel Farage who was with him on the campaign trail for Donald Trump in July 2016. Cottrell was arrested by the FBI and charged with 21 counts of money laundering, bribery and wire fraud.

Damian Collins, chair of the culture, media and sport select committee, said that Banks and Wigmore appeared to have misled parliament and “what we really need to know is why”. He added: “It makes you question whose side they are on.”

According to material seen by the Observer, Wigmore, who was Belize’s trade envoy to Britain at the time, forwarded an email to a Russian diplomat marked “Fw Cottrell docs – Eyes Only”. It is understood the email, dated 20 August 2016, showed six attachments of legal documents relating to Cottrell’s arrest by federal agents. It appears that Wigmore sent it to Sergey Fedichkin , a third secretary at the Russian embassy, saying: “Have fun with this.”

Hey Greenwald fans -- Get in here and defend your boy, if you dare...

Remember kids, either you support Trump or you're a nuclear warmonger!

Your Daily Greenwald is as disgusting as you'd probably expect:

Editor's Note: The time has come for me to put some distance between myself and Greenwald so there won't be any more Daily Greenwalds for awhile... Every time he tweets something I'm mad enough to kill somebody and I don't need that shit in my life...

Jared and Ivanka made at least $82 million in outside income last year

Seriously, fuck everybody who in 2016 screeched out "Goldman Sachs" or lost their shit because Hillary gave a paid speech...
