Mike's Blog Round Up

August 28, 2017

Hello, everyone. It's good to be back. Let's get right to the links, with our thoughts in particular with those in Texas and Louisiana dealing with Horrific Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. If only the Orange Turd, devoid of empathy and compassion as much as intellect and leadership skills, didn't see it all as yet another opportunity to tweet his egomania (and his distractions), the victims just dehumanized bit players in his ongoing nightmare of a reality show.

Booman Tribune: What is an "offense" against the United States?

Perrspectives: Who are Trump's willing white supremacists?

Kiko’s House: Why is Trump obsessed with blocking Russia investigations?

The Moderate Voice: Will there be a new independent political party?

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

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
