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
4/8..sleepwalked through a propagandist delusion that the federal government is out to get them. When really, the Republican Party and its oil and gas friends have been feeding off their brainwashed carcass for decades, like some flesh eating bacteria. The level of leadership
5/8..they have endured under a period of the biggest political con in history, has just exploded like an icy cold shower of reality, as their homes flood, amidst no running water, power failures and a long list of broken promises. As they stand in line in freezing conditions,
6/8..their governor is in a huddle with his oil and gas donors, planning his finances as profits soar on the disrupted power market. Texans suffering appears to be a new revenue driver.

As lives are shattered and trampled on by uncaring and callous leadership telling Texans to
7/8..sink or swim, Greg Abbot is busy accepting emergency aid from the federal government, who he says, has no part to play in Texas. There’s clearly no pride when comes to taking dollars from the US taxpayer. After all, who else should have to pay for his abject failure to act,
8/8.. whilst partying with his buddies in the fossil fuel sector. Republicans certainly had no intention of weatherising the Texan power infrastructure, as they now talk about taxpayers footing the bill, on top of repairing their homes and paying huge energy bills. REALLY?

1/7 Good morning friends and welcome to all my new recruits, it’s a pleasure to have you onboard.

Yesterday was a very sad day in so many ways. It was the realisation that words alone can kill. Trump’s Covid denial strategy in pursuit of four more years, literally led to over
2/7..150k, maybe more unnecessary deaths. People were always going to die, but not at the catastrophic rate the US has experienced. It has been horrific and heartbreaking. I thought Joe’s address to the nation was extraordinarily powerful and deeply heartfelt. Not a sentiment
3/7..expressed in the era of Trump. If nations are a reflection of their leaders heart, then American is in a good place today.

Every great president needs a great Attorney General and Merrick Garland proved yesterday what a giant of the legal establishment he is, not ..

1/8 Good morning. So begins another week. Where to start? Just when I think, ahh yes I understand now, someone hits me in the face with another political bat. My Texas weekend left me scratching my head and thinking to myself, WTF again! Maybe I’m stupid? Or is it that I’m going
2/8..insane? Michael McCaul (R Texas) openly and without a flicker of remorse for abject failure said openly on TV, the plan was to use federal assistance money to pay exorbitant energy bills for Texans being extorted by Texan power companies. Yes you heard that right. YOUR
3/8..hard earned dollars being used to pay what can only be described as a criminal enterprise for thousands of dollars charged by energy companies to customers, in the middle of a pandemic and a power crisis. If that had happened in the U.K, the government would have frozen

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..

1/9 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 ..

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
