I can't even say it was good that he said this, bc saying it 7 days later makes a mockery of the words.

It only inflames. I spoke up several times in Dec/Jan about his tweets recklessly, needlessly promoting the march. Then I saw him fail to review USCP status on the AM of 1/6.
OTOH this, is an example of statesmanship.

I now realize Mike Pence has represented all Americans by being by the President's side all this time in case intervention was genuinely needed.

On 1/6, it was. Not before.

What Mike Pence has been put through is incredible poor treatment in both directions. He showed us how to keep your cool and do your duty no matter what.

The left has always said disgusting hateful things about him.

Then a noisy faction on the right started letting rip.
For the first few days after 1/6 I felt bad for Mike Pence because his President just trashed his future, & did nothing to denounce the death threats made by his associates like Lin Wood (& condoned by Sidney Powell.)

But then I realized something.
Mike Pence knew from the start that he and Trump would probably only get one term, and there was a risk of the Vice Presidency being his final senior role in the federal government.

I once described him as a servant leader. I also think, now, that he has balls of steel.
It's not Trump that showed immense courage in tough times, it's Pence.

I would adore seeing him become POTUS one day... but the chance of that is extremely small now.

And he's OK with that. He serves. God, family, country.
Did you know he is a biker? Check out the patches on his jacket:

Mike Pence is the real deal. What he's achieved is extraordinary.

I was a huge fan of both Trump and Pence, from day one of their joint candidacy. I can't support Trump's actions of the past 10 weeks. But I will talk about the courage (and competence) of Mike Pence forever.

(1) Oh great. More remarks that will only fuel more division. Yeah yeah I know various people are gonna unfollow, block or say mean words to me for trying to assess this speech objectively.

You think I care about that rn? You don't know me at all. Start with my pinned tweet.
(2) From 2015, Trump's opponents exaggerated his flaws, made stuff up, & refused to see the good things he often did.

Part of the effect was to make his supporters dig in deeper to defend him. There was willful blindness.

Opponents should be glad eyes are opening up. But, no.
(3) People on both sides allow "emotional reasoning" (in quotes because it isn't reasoning at all) to invade the space in their mind where logical reasoning and basic empathy should be in charge.

My empathy never wavered but I did let emotion go too far.

That said,

The Ds aren't doing this to reduce the incitement of violence. That's just the cover story.

They're doing all this stuff to neutralize opposition. Experts on foreign revolutions; the faster they take over, the greater chance of success.

Act accordingly. Get offline, & prep.

I was gonna spend today writing threads about how to prepare for what's ahead in the next few weeks. Then I saw the Ds' timeframe is more like days, hours even.

So that all went out the window.
I have no idea if I'll be able to tweet for long so please take nothing for granted from now on.

You and your family can get through this. Please don't give up hope. A couple of days ago I thought about folk at risk of suicide. Check on those around you. Ask how they are.

(1) Updated list of 12 Senate objectors:

@SenLummis (Cynthia) - New Senator, new a/c: Give her a follow
(2) Please be careful about circulating Twitter account names that are NOT run by the Senator. I've verified each one of these as accurate, working off this list that included errors (see next tweet):

(3) The above list had:

>@SenLummis wrong a/c: "@CynthiaLummis"
>Sen Josh @HawleyMO was omitted
>No link for Sen @TTuberville
>No link for @SenJohnKennedy

We all make mistakes, including me.

The tweet has been circulated widely. Let's get the corrected list out, too.

Sadly, the family of @LukeLetlow had to lock his Twitter account due to the verbal abuse being sent there.

About 10 days ago he tweeted a health update & urged eligible Covid survivors to donate antibodies in plasma for others.

👉Please RT this message, to save lives.

They've now gone further and deleted (or maybe hidden) his account. I can understand the level of grief his family are dealing with, so if they want to do this, it makes some sense.

But in PR terms it just draws more attention. And the good replies are gone, with the bad ones.
Fortunately there's still plenty of material online from the family, friends and colleagues of Luke Letlow paying tribute to his life and work.

He was well liked in Louisiana, including by opponents.

(1) I haven't written a thread on the Jeffrey Epstein saga in a while. A wise judge smacked down Ghislaine Maxwell's latest attempt to evade accountability for her part in the crimes.

Maxwell's application for release on bail was a joke.

(2) Maxwell believes she's being treated more harshly than others facing similar charges, just because the prosecutors can't go after Epstein.

This is garbage. The nature and extent of her alleged crimes & her cover-up attempts warrant every bit of the treatment she is getting.
(3) Maxwell has passports in three countries, including France. If she flees to France it would take >20 years to extradite her. Turning in the passports wouldn't be enough, bc people can apply for a replacement. I don't trust FR to do the right thing. The US has been burned b4.

(1) In yet another service to humanity, I checked out the trending topic "Super Gonorrhea" so you don't have to.

Guess "who" started this anti-scientific PR stunt no one asked for?

The World Health Organization, of course. The ChiComs' tool.

(2) The 23yo liberal arts degree holding NSA rejects employed to control Twitter trends decided 12/27/2020 was the perfect time to make the minor & erroneous week-old story about an antibiotic resistant sexually transmitted infection trend.

MDs have known about it for years.
(3) Guess which esteemed publication the WHO representative chose to spread fear among the general population this time?

This respected and reliable pillar of press freedom:
