1/9 Good morning my band of truth seekers and warriors in the fight fir a better tomorrow. Despite a few stutters, the Biden administration is making good steady progress on all fronts. I was tied up video editing all yesterday, so I need to play catch up, but he’s going early ..
2/9 ..on immigration and that is a bold step indeed. It’s the graveyard of many policy attempts, but worth an early punt. I want to study it a little more before diving in. In my research for my Texas video, I saw what it is that drives me to be here. Naked unbridled worship of
3/9 ..money at any cost. Even in the face of abject misery for millions of Texans, Rick Perry was making belligerent statements on behalf of people he hadn’t asked, about keeping federal power regulators out of Texas business. He and his kind had been caught with their pants ..
4/9 ..around their ankles and the answer is, attack regulation. There it is folks, the same cult story Trump sold every day for 4 years. It’s a story much harder to follow if your pipes have burst, you have no power and no insurance. Republican greed comes at the expense of ..
5/9 .everyone. The state government and its oil and gas friends, collude to cut corners for increased profit, in the knowledge that if the wheels come off the bus, insurance companies will repair the damage and the government will help those uninsured. Yes a few people might die
6/9 ..but just like Trump killed 400,000 Americans before leaving office, wealth and power wins over any duty of care. Biden rightly offered a speedy hand to help Texans. It’s who he is. There are no red states or blue states in his America. That does not excuse the gross
7/9 ..negligent behaviour of Texas state authorities over the last decade. The most abhorrent behaviour I’ve left until last. Governor Abbott’s pathetic blaming of the problems on the ‘Green New Deal’ aided and abetted by Fox News. He was using his own failures to blame it on a
8/9 ..policy that doesn’t even exist. Playing the fear card whilst at the same time holding his hand out for help from the new administration. All while people were in a sea of freezing despair. His swift game of blame deflection was embarrassing. As a governor, he has been an
9/9 ..abject failure. His management of the Covid crisis was a disaster, causing the deaths of nearly 42k Texans. It’s time for his state to wake up and smell the coffee. He didn’t freeze, his pipes didn’t burst and Ted Cruz thought it better to find some sun. Never forget.

1/8 So ends another week. Despite the media still obsessing about Trump and the leadership of the GOP, I can safely say I’ve moved on. Mar-a-Lago, has become a refuge for irrelevant nut jobs and underpaid serving staff. Watching Trump, is like watching a fading pop star who..
2/8..thinks he’s still got it. The harsh reality is Donny that the Village People have had their day and are exiled to the record bin of Dave Doubledecks and his mobile disco. As life marches on, his relevance diminishes along with the sanity of his fringe right wannabes. Whilst
3/8..grave diggers across the nation mourn his political passing, the rest of us look forward to a better America 🇺🇸

Sadly, even in a new era of American politics, the stain of Republican greed and incompetence, stands tall in Texas. It seems to me that the people of Texas have

1/6 Good morning. As we close out another week it’s a time of mixed emotions. I was heartened by Joe’s statement to allies across the the world that ‘America is back’. I’m very much an observer of body language and you get the sense now that Biden is finding his feet and piecing
2/6 ..together his big vision on the road ahead. His visit to a vaccine manufacturing plant to thank workers and reaffirm the message that everything that can be done, is being done, was important. It builds on trust that good news or bad, he will level with those who..
3/6 ..elected him as president. His speech to Allies has certainly left Europeans feeling much more comfortable that the US will play an important part in key global issues. His agreement to $2 billion to COVAX to assist with manufacturing and equitable distribution of Covid..

1/4 Good morning friends, another day another failure of leadership. The people of Texas are central in my thoughts today and I’ve decided to visualise their plight at the hands of leadership that have been delinquent in their duty of care. I’m going to try my best to post this
2/4..late this evening, but I can’t promise as I’m starting from scratch and also need to do research as well as storyboarding. I am well aware that people are living this and if you are one of those, feel free to record a statement and DM to me. No promises to include it, but
3/4..if it fits the narrative rest assured I will. These failures in leadership are exactly why I’m here, happy to shine a light and help hold those responsible to account. My heart goes out to everyone affected. I trust the emergency declaration from the president will kick

1/7 Good morning my friends. There are are couple of things on my mind today. Firstly the continued talk about who owns the GOP? Is Trump still heading things up? Do I care? I made a comment yesterday that got some interesting feedback. I was saying that I no longer saw him as..
2/7..threat. You can really tell the sense of nervousness out there by the number of folk that feared Ignoring him is a mistake. I agree you have to keep an eye on him and not underestimate him, but you should not let him dominate your thoughts. I’m sorry, but I can’t take
3/7..seriously, a man who has to organise a crowd of 600 cult members to wave to on his way back from playing golf. I just can’t allow that to happen. Yes he has a substantive voter segment that would walk off a cliff for him, but that segment is not big enough to win an election

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..
