NOT A summit...this is Trump's annual performance review.

Couple and more centuries after my families' first generations in North America, i can only surmise that oligarchic rule is the governing rule in, by and for the U.S.  To pretend otherwise is to be... well, let's say.. a liberal, or simply a Democrat.  Not a 'leftist', or a marxist, but a liberal... the moralizing opposite of a moralizing conservative, a Republican for whom oligarchic rule is the standard by which is driven the efficent, morally defendable distribution of resources among peoples..  Liberals don't have a problem with oligarchies as long as they at least serve if not kowtow to liberal's capitalist, corporatist ideology.

U.S. Americans have no history of putting oligarchical rule into an ideological trash bin as did Russians.  This imminent summit is a meeting between two leaders of oligarchic economies and, under the right demilitarization circumstances,  I put more faith into Putin's Russia's devolving again from oligarchic rule than Trump's United States' devolving a first time from oligarchic rule.

@ JP Hart: Here is his Aeon page, his last post there appeared in October of 2017, following a pretty steady stream of previous entries.

A short internet search tell me that I can't find anything more recent. This does not bode well.

The term, first deployed successfully infowar style by Trumpworld, “Fake News” was to me initially a laughably absurd, sure to be trashed moniker because “the liberal media” -had my whole adult life to be sure- me as their staunch supporter, albeit framed as it was to me, a default option that seemed closer to being in a plane of consciousness, closest to possible alignment with (certainly not of existential threat to) a genuinely socialist, communist, anti-militarist propaganda network rather than a truly untrustworthy, biased, corporatUSt$, no less morally ungrounded option to conservative news broadcast mediums comprising our anti-progressive, regressive propaganda network$.

Were it not for the president being Trump instead of the russophobic sosClinton, Podesta, Mook, Wasserman anti-Bernie Sanders gang in the executive branch HRC'd be rendering virtually enslaved in america's deceitful narrative, progressive souls fully oppressed, depressed, repressed, drowning in debt contributive to our/her corporatist, oligarchic economy, scam, hypocrisy, unaccountable serial offender "crimes against humanity" culture intoxicated on its impunity to accountability, impunity to justice, impunity to reparations, a life smothering blanket of impunity.

I wonder what a poll would show about the electorate's being either of a mind that it was bad that the Clinton Wasserman Podesta anti-Bernie Sanders DNC administration was exposed for what it was, a conniving, anti-democratic cabal or that it was good the deception was exposed.  If the latter mindset prevailed, then the Russians at least deserve an apology if they are not guilty but if they are guilty they should be thanked, even rewarded,, lifting sanctions would be great first step toward establishing a relationship in good faith which was adultated by NATOization aggressions in Eurasia.
