1/7 Good morning friends and Happy Valentines ❤️ The circus has ended with much the result I expected, but unlike some, I do think that it has served a purpose of laying out the case to the American people, just who Donald Trump really is and what he’s done to undermine democracy
2/7 I came to this circus wanting to ignore it, given the inevitable result, but I’m glad I listened to the entire proceeding. I’ve learned how really broken politics is in the US. It’s easy to stand on the outside looking in and judging, but it’s much more difficult to look
3/7..on with concern, giving thought to how it could be made better. The contrast could not be clearer, the Democratic Party seems focused on truth and genuine ambition and change for good. The Republican Party seems focused on power at any cost. It really is as simple as
4/7..good vs evil and that’s not me being dramatic. You can try and hide behind process and jurisdiction all day, but the truth is, the Republican Party allowed a serial killer to walk free. He used the power of the office to kill people incite insurrection, for that, he received
5/7..no sanction whatsoever. Republicans were prepared to abandon their oath of office, to acquit a felonious president who will turn on them in an instant and enjoy destroying their party without a second thought. The statement from Mitch McConnell, was the case for conviction.
6/7 He voted to acquit, whilst at the same time, describing in detail why he should have been convicted. A chilling example of political expediency. I saw many respected Twitter accounts up in arms about not calling witnesses. Are you really that naive? REALLY? Lindsay Graham did
7/7..not vote yes for them because he wanted to do the right thing. He did it the paralyse the Biden administration by stretching impeachment out for months, holding up nominations. Take it from me, in the court of public opinion, Trump was sentenced to life on the losing side.

1/7..Good morning my expanded group of warriors. I seem to have gone from a platoon, to a battalion! After a virtual drinking session with new friends, I’m virtually a little hung over this morning! There was much discussion yesterday about the GOP and its future. I think we were
2/7..given our answer last week during the impeachment trial. There was no rising up of the base, just state level GOP embarking on the very cancel culture they have been screaming about for weeks, as they censured Republican Senators who voted to convict Trump. I think you can..
3/7..safely say that the battle for the dark soul of the Republican Party is well underway. If you are a Democrat today, you should be cautiously optimistic that before you lay an opportunity to cement power for a long time to come. You just need to be awake to a few political..

1/6 Good morning friends. So begins another week on the other side of the impeachment trial. I took close interest in the trial, not only because I was creating videos to support of the Dems case to convict, but also because I was interested to see what a grip Trump took on the
2/6..news cycle. The fact is, he took no hold at all while his clown lawyers mounted a comical defence of their client. For me, this was a trial in the courtroom of public opinion. Polling suggests that more Americans believe Trump should have been convicted and barred from..
3/6..holding federal office. Without his Twitter account he’s politically impotent, so I’m puzzled by all the talk about the future of the GOP’s fortunes, being tied to loyalty to him. In my view, he doesn’t have a hand in the new political poker game. Of course there..

1/7 Good morning, as another week ends, my education in US lunacy politics continues. Let’s not call this a trial anymore shall we? It’s a wake being held for democracy and the rule of law. Politics has always been a complicated creature, but Senate Republicans are taking it
2/7..to a whole new level. Lindsay Graham, the man who were he on a sinking cruise ship, would don a dress as soon as he heard the words ‘women and children first’, described the presentation by the Impeachment Managers on day 2 of the trial, as ‘disgusting and absurd’. The fact
3/7..that he would use the word absurd, to describe the clear account of the murder of a police officer, the clear intent to assassinate the speaker of the House and the Vice President of the United States, gives a chilling indication of the state of the GOP. The irony of all..

1/7 Good morning my growing band of brothers and resister sisters. The past three days have been a lesson in the clear unambiguous delivery of the damning case against Donald J Trump. However, like some dystopian epic, good is surrounded by political self interest and ideology.
2/7 It’s like a political OJ moment, but worse. The jury is half made up of friends of the accused, some of whom are meeting in person with the defence team to discuss strategy to provide cover to acquit Trump. Any hope America had of restoring its reputation on the world stage
3/7..has taken a nose dive, as the world looks on saying WTF? This has exposed so many flaws in the political system, that it’s embarrassing to watch. When you have reached a position where a president can incite and obtain pleasure, from the storming of the seat of democracy,

1/8 Good morning friends. Day 2 of the impeachment trial was an example of forensic presentation of evidence. It was a masterclass in weaving a compelling narrative that absolutely chilled the soul. The Impeachment Managers, one by one, took the jury through the events of
2/8..6 January, painting a clear picture of events, linking their actions to the instructions given by the sitting President of the United States. The narrative was brought together by the excellent use of video footage which included a helpful graphic that placed context around
3/8..where the mob were in relation to lawmakers and staff, as they rampaged through the building. The really chilling thing for me, was the intent behind events. The careful grooming of Trump’s base in the lead up to that day. It was established without doubt, that this day had

1/7 Good morning my friends. So what did you learn on day one of the trial? Well if it was about videos. Dems knocked it out of the park. I thought that the impeachment managers that spoke were without exception, all very capable and articulated their points well.
2/7 What struck me was that Trump’s lawyers were just riffing it. Bruce Castor, seemed to me to be just running down the clock, it was like one of those Sunday Service sermon’s when I used to fall asleep as a kid, only to be clipped around the ear from my angry mother, telling
3/7..me to listen up. As for David Schoen, at first I thought, what was with holding his head each time he had a drink of water? Is it some sort of Trump associated affliction? Trump needed two hands to drink from a bottle of water, this guy has to hold his head on when he drinks
