Yesterday, out of the 146 Million US Citizens registered to vote, over 125 Million of them voted to deny the threat of Climate Change. Only 1.2 Million voters think the threat of Climate Change is something the allegedly most powerful government in the world should be concerning itself with.

To tell you the truth, that’s more than I had thought. But it’s not 5%, so that’s disappointing.

    From Wikipedia:

    In 2008, Democrats got 65.9 Million votes to the Republican’s 60.9 Million.

    Rounded up to 126.8 M total mainstream voters.

    In 2012 the Democrats got 69.4 Million votes to the Republican’s 59.9 Million.

    Rounded up to 126.3 Million total mainstream voters.

    In both cases overwhelmingly for an African American president.

    The popular vote isn’t in yet, but does it make sense to you that the same electoral fence-sters thought this Election’s Republican ticket was more compelling than its Democratic one?

    Favorite quotes from a book review in this morning’s Economist:

    Trump broadcast just a third as many televised adverts as Clinton. But his real strength was in attention-grabbing attacks [ on Clinton ] in tweets and speeches, amplified endlessly online by fans, foes and stunned journalists

    Laws attempting to rein in the huge increase in campaign spending have been [ gutted ] by the Supreme Court. Companies and interest groups can now give virtually without limit.

    Clinton had five times as many staff in Ohio and eight times as many in Pennsylvania. Yet Trump won both states, which had voted for Obama four years ago.

    But this next one’s probably my favorite favorite:

    Campaigns have to pay firms fair value for services rendered. Thus Trump was able to allocate about $8m of his campaign funds to pay family members and his own businesses for services.

      From this morning’s Fortune:

      U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has agreed to settle fraud lawsuits relating to his Trump University series of real estate seminars for $25 million, a person familiar with the matter said on Friday.

      A settlement would end a dispute that dogged Trump throughout his presidential election campaign and led to one of the more controversial moments of his run when he claimed the judge overseeing two of the cases was biased because he was of Mexican ancestry.

      Lawyers for the president-elect have been arguing against students who claim they were they were lured by false promises into paying up to $35,000 to learn Trump’s real estate investing “secrets” from his “hand-picked” instructors.

    Given that Trump has apparently hired some of the best Character Assassination Professionals money can buy, what are the chances that Weaponized Disinformation will overwhelmingly characterize his regime’s M.O.?

    In summary, almost 127 million voters showed up in 2008 to take the mandate away from the party being vacated by Bush. In 2012 that number was down to 126 million.

    By 2016, even though the mandate rushed to the opposite corner (again), the number of voters was down by a cool mil.
