The English Civil War ended with the alleged beheading of Charles I in 1649. Like the previous history of England we are sold, this history never made much sense.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_C…
If we look broadly at the given history of Charles I, it seems like he did pretty much the same thing his father did, shutting down Parliament whenever he liked and stealing freely from all those around him. So why did he fail where other kings succeeded?
Should we believe the mainstream historians who tell us he just made more mistakes than previous kings? No, we shouldn't. We shouldn't believe anything mainstream historians tell us, and least of all things like this.

Please enjoy the audio version of our LIVE show from Monday.

@KathrynDi and @dwayneheisler along with @taylormlightman and @jordisunshine discussed the Womens' March, messaging around Build Back Better (which produced some difference of opinion)
and finally a fun activity of picking Oscar-esque award show nominations for various protest signs.

Kate saved us from some "ma-wkward" moments of males hemming and hawing about womens' isses (protest, march, etc).

Please support the show by liking, subscribing,
and patronizing the show. We hope to see @terraynemyricks next week along with other guests.

@jordisunshine is headed to the PA Municipal League conference in fascinating #Lancaster, where a #KelloggStrike is underway. He will report back, maybe from being escorted out if

The founder of #Russia Insider promoted Stop the Steal, journeyed to the Capitol on Jan 6, and then disappeared to –– leaving the Christmas lights still dangling from his #Lancaster home.

Read @MichaelEHayden's investigation here: splcenter.org/hatewatch/2021…
#Hatewatch started reporting on Russia Insider’s Charles Bausman last year when we linked him to a white nationalist group through an email ID buried in the source code of a network of racist websites:
splcenter.org/hatewatch/2020…
We also linked Bausman's site to a hyperpartisan blog focused on #LancasterCounty, PA.

He moved there from #Russia in 2018, produced a flood of far-right propaganda & left after Jan. 6: splcenter.org/hatewatch/2020…

My mom & dad bought their first house in #PaloAlto for about $16,000. At the time, it cost about 5 cents per hour to park downtown. Today, that same house would cost ~$3 million & it’s free to park downtown.

We have completely solved our affordable housing problem–for our cars🧵
In 2019, surveyors counted 313 homeless people in #PaloAlto, up 99% from 2013. They found no homeless cars.

How did #PaloAlto become a city of expensive housing and free parking? In 1951, Palo Alto adopted a new zoning ordinance. The new law limited housing and required parking.

I finished my crosswalk of 2016 to 2020 precincts over the holidays (apologies for posting a Xmas-inspired but not colorblind-safe version initially). A few things jumped out & led me down a rabbit hole of demographics & light plagiarism. Let's go! #ElectionTwitter 🧵1/?
When I initially did the municipal-level shifts map several weeks ago, some cities in the Eastern half of the state had a conspicuous red shift (Lebanon, Reading, Lancaster, etc.), & I was looking forward to diving deeper into those +Trump shifts... 2/?
These happen to all be cities with large Latino populations. Then @dawncai624 & @fordfess wrote a
great piece in the NYT looking at these trends in large cities across the US, so I'm going to look at our mid-size cities the same way... 3/?

Going to bed absolutely heartbroken and truly saddened by the rioting in my beloved hometown of Lancaster. The national media's friends in Antifa and BLM are causing chaos in the county where generations on both sides of my family tree have grown up and still live.
We love the Lord, respect law enforcement, and believe in values of camaraderie, faith, hard-work, honesty, and respect. I knew plenty that were different from me and I loved them all the same. This is not who we are as Lancastrians.
Facts matter here. The body camera says it all. And yet, the mob has come to the Red Rose City. And I couldn't me any more despondent over that.

Is everyone doing ok after last night? The storms tore thru here around 4am. Not surprising there's a lot of counties now under a flash flood watch. Starts at 4pm thru noon tomorrow.

📻
If you're out camping etc, have your weather radios on. Strong to severe thunderstorms may redevelop this afternoon along the #Nebraska/#Kansas border [generally south of I-80], then expand in coverage as they move northeast through the evening.
