Sunday Link-Off: Recovery

emmanuelle-chriqui-ema16-04You know what? I’m still not ready to get back to doing the links. After spending the last couple of months trying to save America from itself (and the World from America), 26.4% of eligible Americans gave the world President Trump. God help us all and God help the United States of America.

Anyway, the road back to some sort of healing has to start some time and we may as well carry on with the Sunday edition of the links. Let’s kick off with Emmanuelle Chriqui.

So the Democrats were defeated. Though not resoundingly, it was a complete defeat. Bernie Sanders explains where they go from there. (New York Times)

But not all Democrats or supporters look inside the party to reflect on what went wrong. Some are looking at the likes of the FBI and the Wikileaks/Russia connection. (The Hill)

By the way, some folks from Wikileaks did an AMA on Reddit but dodged any questions about questionable ethics, motivations and ties when it came to their coverage and influence of the US Presidential Election. (/r/IAmA)

I’m not kidding when I say that 26% of Americans voted for Trump. Fewer people voted for him than Hilary. See? He was right. The election was rigged. (Quartz)

So now that most of his work will be done by Republican control of all three branches of the US government (it’s only a matter of time before a new ultra-Conservative gives the GOP control of the judicial branch), what will President Obama’s legacy be? (GQ UK)

The Presidential campaign diverted our attention from everything else in the world. For example, the water in Flint still isn’t fixed. A judge has ordered door-to-door water delivery. (MLive)

And President Obama’s dedication to science (what a difference the next four years will be in that regard) will give us a new space telescope to launch in two years. (Engadget)

Mexicans are standing up against crime in their country with a wave of vigilantism. (The Guardian)
