1/6 Good morning brothers and resister sisters. Weekends give us chance to reflect on the week past and for me, it’s been revealing. A strange dividing line has been drawn that sees the official opposition party settling down to be a party of maniac election truth deniers.
2/6 I read a piece saying that Dems had to be careful not to try and paint all Republicans in the same way Republicans paint Dems as radical left Marxists. The harsh reality is, that with 147 members voting against the certification of the results of a free and fair election. The
3/6 ..active support by some of those members for insurrection and the attempted purging from its ranks of ‘moderate’ Republicans. The refusal to condemn QAnon elected representatives and Republicans, without any help from Dems, paint themselves as a lunatic hard right cult.
4/6 Mitch McConnell and Liz Cheney are in Matt Gaetz summation, the old party wanting to help Biden maintain the status quo. He’s betting on full retention of power of the Republican base staying with Trump, as are Cruz, Hawley and the usual suspects, to bring Washington to its .
5/6 ..knees. Marco Rubio yesterday attacked Dems as the party of cancel culture, big business, tech and fresh air. Ignore fresh air, I made that up, but the point I’m making, is that they assert everyone is against them. Victimhood is the new political virtue. This represents for
6/6 ..Dems a chance to press forward without bipartisan agreement because who wants agreement with a bunch of hard right space laser election deniers. Be assertive and do the work of the people, while Republicans tear their own soul out. It’s about focusing on achievable goals.

1/6 Yesterday for me was Jen Psaki day. I always think to myself, that must be an awesome job being Press Secretary to POTUS, but when you drill down, to do it properly requires sort of communication super powers. When watching the previous occupant of the job, one got the ..
2/6 ..impression that her job was to hide the truth and shield the president. With Jen, it’s a finely crafted delivery of facts, no fear of cutting off anything at the knees, if it’s straying into nonsense territory, but a message marinated in truth and integrity. Her style is ..
3/6 ..effortless (hiding how truly challenging it is to balance the administration’s messaging imperatives). Her friendly, sometimes jovial approach to interacting with the press, hides her absolute focus on the message. Her shutdowns are often delivered with a smile and the ..

1/6 Good morning friends. So begins another week. 10 Republicans wrote a letter to the president to say cut your package by 65% and you will get bipartisan support. Hang on a moment while I stop laughing. Is this the same Republican Party that used budget reconciliation to ..
2/6 ..enrich their big business friends that are now allegedly their enemy along with big tech and ‘cancel culture’? So the thanks they got for their giant tax breaks was for the recipients to now be against them? Hmmm, something’s not quite right methinks. The reality ..
3/6 ..is that Trump tapped into small donations from gullible racists and nationalists. It has proved a rich vein of campaign finance and is now perceived as the future as large donors walk away. We are hearing much about thousands of Republicans walking away from the Party, ..

1/7 Good morning friends. The weekend has arrived. It’s been a week in which the pen has been mightier than the legislation. Joe has flexed his writing hand to get stuff done and undo some of the EOs Trump put in place to benefit his friends. For me, it’s been revealing..
2/7 ..in respect of the Republican Party. It’s hard for me to comprehend that in a modern democracy, politics could shift so far to the right. The fact that millions of Americans would effectively accept a dictator, is just not something I can wrap my head around.
3/7 Many often correct me when I talk about the last 4 years, saying the problems go way beyond that and I do understand, but there appears to have been a tectonic shift, when we start talking about space lasers and satanic cult politicians drinking the blood of babies.

1/7 Good morning my band of truth seekers. Yesterday may have been a defining day in US Politics. It appears to have been the day that the GOP decided that without Trump, they can’t survive. McCarthy going to kiss ..
2/7..Trump’s ring seems to me to be a clear sign of intent. Add to that, the unbelievably insensitive appointment to the Education Committee of MTG is another sign that Republican values are deceased, as I had already visualised.
3/7 Mitch McConnell is very quiet, but given Matt Gaetz’s trip to campaign against Liz Cheney and the general purge mentality that now exists in the GOP, it seems that all they need to do is put brown shirts on with armbands, and we have 1930’s Germany alive and well ..

1/6 Another day in paradise. Now I know the press has been cast to sea for 4 years, left with nothing but an empty press briefing room, but to feel the disappointment in the room that Joe hasn’t managed to fix America in a ..
2/6 ..week, is twisting my mind. What’s going on? Outrageous transparency, guest experts in their field provided in press briefings to answer questions. A daily in person briefing from the president himself to explain the road ahead. WTF more do you need? These are unprecedented
3/6 ..times. A nation has been torn apart by a homicidal maniac almost 500,000 Americans are dead and we’re asking about Marjorie Maniac Green? REALLY? It’s not the president’s job to sort out the fact that Republicans can’t organise a primary. One thing that has impressed me ..

Being president is not about Twitter and self congratulatory appearances on Fox TV. It’s about digging in, getting the job done without fuss. It’s about taking time each day to explain the plan and not sugar coat it.
2/3 It’s about having a grasp of the big picture and putting in place a federal response, cognisant of logistics and cost to states. Delivering for every state, not just blue states. It’s about re-establishing alliances, rejoining WHO and the Paris Climate Agreement. It’s about..
3/3 ..empathising every day with those that have lost loved ones. Recognising the division that remains and working to diminish it every day. It’s about recognising the job is more important than playing golf. It’s about being an honourable person with values and integrity.
