Mike's Blog Round Up

Well, it's official. The Electoral College, that ridiculous expression of anti-democratic sentiment, has voted for Trump, as expected, and now the great kleptocratic con – because, let's face it, this is largely a self-aggrandizing, money-making venture for the Orange Turd (albeit one built upon the political power of authoritarian fascism, white nationalism, corporatist plutocracy, and Russian influence), not least when it comes to his inauguration – will get to use the White House as its platform.

This on a day when there was an attack in Berlin and an assassination in Ankara. And things will only get worse with the Orange Turd in office. After eight years of steady, informed, enlightened leadership (in the White House, at least), America is about to lose whatever moral standing it has in the world, whatever sense of purpose it has as a member of the international community, and return to a dark age of sociopathic ignorance and the horrors that spring from it, and that will only fuel those who would do America, and its friends, harm.

At the very least, release the tape, Tom! America, and the world, deserve to know what the Orange Turd is really all about.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
