Among the "public officials" so heroically EXPOSED by this bombshell report: "Craig Shepherd, who public records show is a paramedic in Utah... gave $10 to Rittenhouse on 30 August"

Really holding power to account here, so grateful

Also note that this crowdfunding information was obtained via "data breach" but Twitter isn't appending any scary warnings about "hacked materials" to tweets circulating this article, rather Twitter has decided to editorially promote the article Image
Make sure you "show your support for high-impact journalism" by handing over money to the Guardian so they can continue EXPOSING paramedics in Utah who gave $10 to a legal defense fund Image
Local ABC affiliate tracked down the Utah paramedic and went to his house. Swelling with pride and gratitude over this amazingly inspiring example of Accountability Journalism

When Journalists Declare In Unison That Something Has Been Debunked, Assume The Opposite Is True…
This doesn't mean you should just automatically believe that every claim the media declares "debunked" is in every instance 100% true. But you should revise your understanding of what the term "debunked" is intended to convey:
A touching homage to the Media Debunker Squad from Substack commenter Scott

If you go around interpreting the display of American flags in America as some kind of personal/political affront to you, consider that the problem may be your own neuroses
I was just at a Memorial Day parade in a racially mixed area in which everybody was displaying American flags. If you walked up and tried to inform them that the flag actually connoted "whiteness" you would've been greeted by blank stares or laughter
I live in one of the most racially-mixed parts of the entire country and there's an American flag on my building. A house next door (non-white owners) displays an American flag. This whole mentality, as usual, is an ideological projection by cultural elites onto non-white normies

Unsurprisingly, COVID Testing For International Travel Is A Bit Of A Scam…
For a trip to the UK, I ended up having to pay a total of $414 for three COVID tests. Also got a free NHS test, but was informed this was not accepted for international travel. Major boondoggle for private COVID test entrepreneurs working in tandem with airlines and governments!
From a policy standpoint, the most confounding aspect of the trip is that my status as fully-vaccinated made no difference to anything. Didn't enable circumvention of any bureaucratic roadblocks. I might as well *not* have been vaccinated! Seems like the wrong incentive

Dude, I was reacting to an LA Times headline that posited some affirmative obligation on the part of the general public to provide “help” to celebrities and other insanely rich people (like you) with their anxiety issues. Please try to improve your reading comprehension abilities
It's so bizarre what a ridiculous firestorm my throwaway tweet on this subject created, lol. Now Serena's husband is even going after me. TARGETED HARASSMENT!!!!
Those two NBA players I was commenting on in 2018 didn't have the media beseeching the public to provide them with "help." That would've been ridiculous. Also, I don't think "stigma" around mental health is as much of a problem anymore. If anything there's been an over-correction

State Dept. spokesperson feels the need to weigh in on this issue for some reason, and of course bizarrely ascribes race-based "anger." I guess everyone's also obliged to provide "empathy and help" to this government official if she ever finds a press conference "stress inducing"
“Comms leader” 😂😂😂

I profusely apologize for “invalidating” the experiences of this “private citizen” who also happens to be a high-profile official in the federal government. I will try to Do Better
PSA: When a State Department spokesperson baselessly accuses you of harboring racial animus it’s fine if they’re using their personal Twitter account

This is the first time I've ever watched a movie and felt compelled to track down the director for an interview. I highly recommend "Some Kind of Heaven," a documentary that's ostensibly about The Villages retirement community in Florida -- but not really…
Don’t watch the movie if you’re expecting a cliched polemic about Trump supporters in The Villages. Do watch the movie if like me, you enjoy immersing in these little slices of dreamscape Americana
Though a documentary, the movie is shot like a feature film. There are moments you'd swear the subjects are masterclass professional actors, but they are not. Unlike anything I've ever seen before
