1/6 Good morning friends. It’s circus week. I am certainly intrigued to see how ‘Impeachment Part 2 (The big lie)’ pans out. If it’s one thing I’ve learned in my time close up and personal with US politics, it’s that defending the indefensible is a real thing. However,
2/6..there must be concern in GQP ranks, that this will just pour gasoline on an already fractured Republican Party. There are some crazy people out there at the moment, suggesting crazy things about 6 January. I’m fully expecting the Trump defence to come up with some conspiracy
3/6 ..that House Democrats were responsible for it all and that Nancy Pelosi was leading the effort and she had a body double on the floor as a decoy. That’s how utterly stupid this whole debacle has become. The reality is, that people died, lawmakers and staff were in fear for
4/6 ..their lives and the whole thing was incited by the now former president. Republicans are desperate to make this about the trial being unconstitutional, simply because that is their only off ramp. Democrats on the other hand, desperately want Trump to pitch the big lie.
5/6 It’s likely that there will be a hint of the ‘big lie’, but not enough for it to derail the case. Republicans are just looking for cover to acquit. The truth is, the American public are now leaning towards conviction and barring from office, so Dems are winning the
6/6 ..battle for hearts and minds. For Biden, this is an unwelcome distraction from the real problems the country faces. He’s just got to stay focused on the job in hand, which I have no doubt he and his team will do. Buckle up folks it’s going to be an interesting week.

1/5 Good morning friends. The day has arrived that allows Donald J Trump to grab the news cycle. The question is, what does the new administration do as the week rolls on and it’s all Trump Trump Trump? My suggestion is, more of what they’ve been doing to date without the gaffe
2/5 ..moments. It was in my view, unwise for Joe to step into the minimum wage issue while Bernie Sanders was doing his thing. Even if Joe thought the $15 minimum wage would hit the buffers, it would have been wiser to stay out of it. These things happen though and so far,
3/5.. things have been going OK. This week will be a real test of how strong support is for Donald Trump. His lack of daily exposure has really hurt him and looking at polling, there are increasing numbers of Americans that think he should be convicted this week. I’m sure Chuck

1/6 Good morning my ever growing bunch of seekers for a better tomorrow. Day dawns on Super Bowl Sunday. A day traditionally when families gather and share their love of football. Please, please don’t risk gathering in the current climate where Covid remains a real threat.
2/6 Never would most of us believed that we would now be considering the imminent death toll of half a million Americans. Even more unbelievable, is that many of these deaths were totally avoidable with the simple adoption of cheap mitigation steps. I never cease to be astounded
3/6 ..by the sometimes stupid and frankly selfish nature of humans. Our refusal to accept inconvenience and our ability to disregard the safety of others for our own benefit, is what will see the end of us as a species. If ever an enemy of the state wanted to attack, America ..

1/7 As another week draws to a close, I’m actually feeling optimistic. For all the attention surrounding Marjorie Taylor Green, the Biden administration continues to make steady progress on addressing the important challenges facing Americans TODAY. It was important to remove..
2/7 ..her from her committee assignments, to ensure she can have no direct input into the legislative process, but always remember that this does not stop her influence in terms of spreading ideas to colleagues. Her relationship with Trump is a key factor in her standing in the .
3/7 ..caucus. It seems clear to me that the GOP has chosen its path and given McConnell’s extensive political career, I can only think he’s squeezed enough money out of it, to decide not no fight for any moderate values. Maybe he’s just decided to ride it out and step down ..

1/7 Good morning. As we move to the close of another week, I reflect on how broken opposition politics is in America. I never in my wildest dreams, ever thought I would see a congressional minority leader, defend a member who had threatened the lives of lawmakers and spread
2/7 ..hatred and bile that has caused so much pain and heartache to families who have lost children and loved ones to senseless acts of violence. It is beyond any sense of decency and integrity, that anyone, let alone the leader of the Republican congressional caucus, could even
3/7 ..contemplate such an act of disrespect. Republicans hid behind the argument, that the vote tabled by Dems to remove her from her committee assignments, would set a dangerous precedent. This is frankly preposterous and an insult to common decency. I offer my respect to the 11

1/3 I know people are wondering why no video content recently? I have been plagued by a series of technical issues that have hampered my ability to do what I do and love doing. It’s felt like having my creativity held hostage, being unable to share my thoughts visually.
2/3 Whilst I still have some issues, I have managed to get creative and repurpose stuff to allow me to work. This work will begin at the crack of dawn tomorrow and you will be seeing a few new clips over the next 72 hours. Thank you for your patience and love. Your support keeps
3/3 ..me sane at what is a difficult time for me. Special thanks to those who have started reading my blog, it helps me pour out how I feel and guides my thoughts on what become my video clips. I believe together we can Democratise political content.

1/6 Good morning friends. Yesterday saw the GOP stumble through another identity crisis day in which Trump is an ever present influence on proceedings. While the nation struggles to overcome a national emergency, Republicans are playing victim, claiming persecution because ..
2/6 ..they chose a couple of nutcase congresswomen. It’s like ‘why are you picking on us because we have 2 lunatic colleagues?’ These people are definitely intellectually challenged. Maybe that’s why we should be feeling sorry for them? The bottom line is that McCarthy has shown
3/6..zero leadership and has now effectively forced all Congressional Republicans to have to go on record to support QAnon. How totally bizarre that? He is having to get Dems to clean up his mess. It’s going to be humiliating and I might suggest, the end to his ambition to be ..
