In the 90s I was a host on a talk radio station in LA, the same that aired Rush. I was president of LA NOW, & the liberal wkend host when he visited the station. He was so vilified by my then-crowd, I expected a monster. Instead, I met a remarkable, kind and encouraging man... 1/
He was gregarious & generous when we met. He shook my hand & I was shocked that he was nice & genuinely curious about my radio work and activism. I realized I was going to have a fascinating conversation 2/
There were many events during this time as a radio talk show host that changed me. It was my first job in the medium starting in 1993. My meeting Rush & our conversations made me realize the left had been lying to me about many things... 3/
Rush was not a monster, he wasn’t evil, he did not mean people harm, he wasn’t a bigot, or any of the other smears lobbed against him by my leftist associates. I liked him very much, and while we disagreed on many things (then) he was nothing has he had been painted 4/
In my conversations with him, we talked about the issues and despite the disagreements, he also took time to give me advice about hosting, style, connecting w the audience, etc. He encouraged me and gave me advice that made a huge difference in my career… 5/
He approached me and everyone else as separate individual worthy of respect and with a desire to help and inspire. Regardless of the fact that I stood for everything he stood against. It was a generosity of spirit you would never see on the left 6/
The impact of realizing that I’d been lied to about Rush was significant, but that as a conservative he represented more of what I felt was valuable & important was a revelation. He made it possible to even consider that which is what made him so dangerous to the left 7/
During this time as an activist leftist, it was talk radio, the audience, & meeting Rush Limbaugh that was the undeniable trigger making it possible for me to rethink my alliances & eventually leave the leftist establishment 8/
It wasn’t just Rush, but I’d also been lied to about conservatives in general, realizing that by speaking with callers every day who were conservative & responding fairly & w curiosity to my arguments on the air. Rush made that medium, & experience, possible 9/
My leftist associates begged me not to go into talk radio. I eventually realized they were so opposed because of what I would learn. That leftist effort to deny access to ideas & info continues w even more vitriol & punishment for those who dare to challenge leftist lies 10/
Rush created the potential of the medium, and set the tone for entertainment, analysis & education. Honest conversations open to everyone is anathema to the left which is why they’re obsessed w creating fear & the cancel culture 11/
The ugliness of the left will be seen throughout today & the days to come in response to the death of Rush, an American titan & defender of conservative values. The left is ugly & horrible but it is exactly their nature & should serve to remind you the importance of our fight 12/
The good news is, Rush not only changed our lives by helping us understand the imperative of freedom & generosity, but he now serves as an even more essential example for all of us 13/
Rush may be gone, but now it’s up to all of us to continue his commitment to our great nation. Thank you sir, for the time you took with a arrogant & smug LA leftist feminist, one of the millions of lives you changed for the better.

So NYPD arrive at my apt to take report about a random guy threatening to kill me as I was walking little Ruby. They admit nothing’s going to happen because it’s not an arrestable offense but it’s good to have a paper trail. Then they tell me… 1/
as they are finishing up with the report that there’s a new “initiative” in NYC. I asked them if the new initiative was about arresting bad guys and putting them in jail. Or hiring more cops & funding the police. But no… 2/
They inform me I may receive a phone call asking for a *review of their performance during our exchange* 🤦🏻‍♀️ Being a cop is one of the most thankless & dangerous things right now. Their hands are tied because of idiotic “progressive” pro-crime city policies… 3/

Reminder: You have been receiving, by default, the Twitter *curated* tweet lineup in your main timeline. You can change this to a natural “latest tweets” of those you actually follow. I learned this from an @elonmusk tweet. Here’s how to make the change:
Go to your main timeline, not your notifications, the main timeline. At the top to the right is a star. Touch that. Impressing Orwell, they call their artificial curated tweet timeline “Home.” That’s not home, that’s the timeline according to them not according to you.
Choose “latest tweets” and you will be amazed w how you will suddenly be seeing people you didn’t realize had been disappeared from your timeline. Also: Whenever Twitter app is updated check to make sure you’re still on the latest tweets, avoid auto reverting to curated. ❤️🇺🇸

The leftists going crazy over Musk’s takeover of Twitter are not concerned about having to see things they don’t like. They are freaking out over not being able to stop information and control the communication. 1/
Twitter has been an assignment desk for legacy media and their quashing of the Hunter Biden story gave every other outlet “permission” to do so. Those days are over. The suspending of the New York Post sent another message that other media outlets had better conform. 2/
But this event is not a one-off. We have reached the cliff of leftist overreach, abuse, and even violence in the name of equity and fairness. When they started going after children Americans across the board woke up to the cancer of wokism. 3/

Ok, In order to have a reset after COVID and to deal with the 10 pounds I’ve gained over the debacle of the last 2 disgusting years— I can’t believe I’m saying this— I’m going on a supervised VEGAN meal plan for the next 2 weeks to jumpstart the reset. SEND VIBES 🤦🏻‍♀️ Here’s why…
My official recovery from COVID was quick, 1 week. Dec 26- Jan 2. The worst symptoms were fatigue & brain fog. In the aftermath, my sleeping is completely screwed up. Sometimes NO SLEEP AT ALL! Plus my eating habits in NYC were horrible during COVID— so much delivery. It’s awful
The brain fog lifted thank goodness but w winter, the cold, no sun, stress of a dangerous & disgusting city, bizarre sleeping patterns, weight gain, erratic blood pressure (!) likely attached to stress & the extra 10lbs, it’s time to punch in a new approach

Many who supported Biden still shrugging their shoulders about our many catastrophes. "We didn't know!" "Who could've known?!" "He tricked us!" Yeah, no. Everyone knew & some simply didn't care. Because tweets or style or bluntness, Trump wasn't suitable for 'decent' company 1/7
Trump didn't kiss any rings... wasn't suitably grateful or humble. His existence cast a light on the constant lie from the entrenched 'elite' that they were better than everyone else. Their positions were unavailable to the hoi polloi 2/7
And now, those same people who fell in line to prop up the empty suit in a basement are making excuses for the catastrophes now and the disasters to come. Because their families can survive it. Inflation, crime, war, vaccine mandates (from which they are exempt) 3/7

On Omicron hysteria, file under ‘not letting a good crisis go to waste,’👉🏻 Thread via @StephenMoore:
“The chair of the South African Medical Association, probably the world's top Omicron expert to the extent such a thing exists yet, Dr Angelique Coetzee said:
“It’s all speculation at this stage. It may be it’s highly transmissible, but so far the cases we are seeing are extremely mild. Maybe two weeks from now I will have a different opinion, but this is what we are seeing. So are we seriously worried? No.”
“We are concerned and we watch what’s happening. But for now we’re saying, ‘OK: there’s a whole hype out there. [We’re] not sure why.’”
