Donald Trump will win reelection. I take no pride in saying that.

I will feel no thrill or joy to witness the Oval Office occupied for another four years by the most grotesque, venal, incompetent, amateur megalomaniacal man-child this country has ever seen. He's bush league, and he's not even in Bush's league of idiots.

And no, the reason Trump will triumph is not just because Joe Biden happens to be the most pathetic, contaminated, befouled, out-of-touch hapless candidate the Democratic Party has ever put up since Hillary Clinton way back in... WAS THAT JUST FOUR YEARS AGO?! Seems like 900. Ugh, god. (Is life slowing down? Speeding up? Are we in purgatory? Perhaps a collective hideously-gruesome dreamscape that's supposed to teach us some kind of lesson?)

No, Donald Trump will likely prove victorious because nearly 17 million Americans have been purged from the voter rolls over the past four years and your corporate media doesn't have the genitalia to effectively report on it.

Investigative reporter Greg Palast has uncovered yet another way our sham democracy has been rigged. If you don't know him, he's the tenacious fellow who discovered how George W. Bush stole the presidency in 2000; the guy who uncovered how the Deepwater Horizon oil spill actually happened; the guy who revealed how California was stolen from Bernie Sanders by forcing provisional ballots on every carbon-based life-form that entered a polling place; and the guy who discovered where I left my underwear that crazy night in Vegas.

In his new book "How Trump Stole 2020," Palast writes, "Between 2014 and 2016, the number of voters purged for moving their residence had soared to 16,696,470 one in 12 registered Americans."

And most of them didn't actually move, and almost all of them didn't actually move out of their city, meaning almost all of those 16.7 Million should be able to vote but won't when they show up to their polling place in November.

To give you an idea of just how much 16.7 million scrubbed voters could matter in this year's election, Trump won the state of Michigan against Hillary Clinton in 2016 by 10,704 votes. That's .065 percent of the number of people purged across the nation for supposedly moving residences.

And please keep in mind I am not saying anything complimentary of Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden. That's not the point. I just want a legit election. I will call out all election meddling, fraud and suppression whether it comes from the GOP, the DNC, the CIA, Run-DMC, or Blink182. I don't care. I just want an actual legitimate adult big-boy election.

Ballot Robbing

And in reality, it's even more than 16.7 million robbed of their ballot. That's only the people who were scrapped for supposedly "changing residences" when most didn't. That's not even counting the people purged by way of Interstate Crosscheck, or due to closed polling places, or due to thrown out mail-in ballots, etc. Yes, even though some people are now pushing for a complete mail-in election this coming November due to the pandemic, Palast reports, "Mail-in ballots are a nightmare. Twenty-two percent are thrown out. Move to 80% mail-in voting and 25 million people would lose their votes."

The powers-that-be can throw out mail-in ballots for just about anything. Maybe the signature doesn't quite match, maybe the would-be voter had a stray mark or rogue booger on the page, maybe despite being an American citizen, they signed their name in their native language -- such as Korean, maybe the voter just barely -- hardly at all -- ever so slightly" wiped their ass with the ballot. But can you blame them? When it's Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden? Why would you not?!
