This Michael Cohen interview is very interesting. Esp. when he got to the part about spending 51 days of solitary confinement in federal prison.

Highly recommended listening. You will learn a lot about Trump, and America's present troubles.

Now Cohen's talking about making amends to his wife, kids and country. He beats himself up for encouraging Trump to run for office in the first place.

Michael, you are not to blame. Forgive yourself.

He's a deep thinker and is emotionally healthy after it all. I like him.
While I'm a nobody in all this, I see a lot of myself in Michael Cohen. We're both intelligent people who would rather admit that we were sucked in by the cult, if it helps save lives and rebuild the USA.

Plenty of highly credentialed people fell for it, and still have. #ExMAGA
And yeah, I have time for Rick Wilson, Charlie Sykes, Bill Kristol... despite buying into the lame schoolyard online behavior about them for years.

Even George Conway comes out looking well, after his wife was recorded emotionally abusing their daughter.

Whole new world.

(1) And so it begins. #HWStormWatch🇺🇸🌀

Hurricane #Bill got a name but he's of no concern to me.

It's the future Hurricane #Claudette⚜️, (lovely Cajun name) that means y'all in her path must get #prepping today.

#Danny #Elsa #Fred #Grace next…
(2) Why on earth would a Kiwi fan of Margaret Thatcher be interested in US Gulf and Atlantic coast hurricanes?

Several reasons, but we'll start with being an earthquake survivor. (2011, NZ, 185 deaths in my city.)

It changed my life.
(3) Earthquakes can't be predicted. Anyone who claims they can is trying to scam you.

Hurricanes CAN be predicted.

So instead of despairing at the death toll each time, I promote #readiness and I fight #disinformation too.

(1) My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Christopher Sign.

Here's a short thread with some background into what the internet will be talking about today in relation to his death.

Nowadays when I write about those claiming #Arkancide is real, I pull no punches.
(2) I'm the first to admit that years ago I believed that at least a few of the so-called Arkancide cases likely were homicides, not suicides. I still don't know if they were, and nor do you.

I later changed my view and in 2019 became so furious I wrote about it (next tweet)
(3) Please note the context of the below thread; the date on which it was written, and proximal events.

It represents my attempt to accurately (at the time) assess the threat level of the "Q" movement that would later be implicated in 1/6/21.

(1) Thread: Left vs right in 2021

If you read Thomas Sowell or any other free markets economist or thinker, you can learn why the left is now on the ascendancy in so many countries.

Where did the "right" go so wrong?
(2) IMO, when right wing parties fail to get their economic messages across, a lot of ground is ceded, & a lot of damage can be done to a country. During a pandemic or other crisis it's x1,000.

Then add in extremism. (Actually, don't do that, OK?)

(3) The extremist ideology and tactics that were escalated by most of the GOP leadership in the past 18 months has blown away any hope of reaching new voters, or keeping the ones they had.

Current mood: Savoring the musicality and memories of my favorite song for the past 23 years. Dr HW prescribes it for both the down times and the up times.

Life lesson: You make it happen in your life, no one else will, or can. #YouGetWhatYouGive

I'm aware this the greatest one hit wonder of the 1990s was also Beau Biden's song.🇺🇸 Let's call it even, bc most of us around in 1998 who heard the song loved it too.

I was gutted they didn't keep going, but I get it. Unwilling to do the round of promoting gigs & albums.
The lyrics are so good, every one of them.

I can't tell you how many times I thought of or played this song to get me through difficulties. Not going to complain but yeah, I've had my fair share of troubles in five decades. Songs like this were a big part of surviving them.

(1) Thread: The self-exiled Harry recently claimed his father was a bad parent, and he had no kind words to say about anyone in his "family of origin," except his late mother, who can't be called to testify.

Watch this short 1992 clip:

(2) I remember watching the great royal wedding of 1981, then seeing two newborn princes carried down the steps of the Lindo Wing in 1982 and 1984, respectively.

That short clip from Balmoral shows the 10 and 8 year old brothers relaxing as they kick around a soccer ball.
(3) It was 1993 not 1992, sorry. I watched the clip a few times, listened to Charles' wise words, and noted the body language throughout.

After the past few months I like and respect my two future Kings even more than I did before. William has really come into his own.

(1) A quick thread about my pinned tweet of June 1, 2021.

And some updates to my profile bio. A huge proportion of 2016 and 2020 Trump voters admired Margaret Thatcher & her economic, social, & national security policies.

They're ignoring that now.

(2) Trump & the GOP were in a good position electorally in January 2020. But he & they threw it all away, for nothing.

Sure, they blame the pandemic. Some of us don't tend to buy excuses. We prefer logic & evidence.

Anyone living in the UK between the 1960s & the 90s gets it.
(3) Don't call it "The Troubles." It was an ethno-nationalist separatist IRA insurgency campaign that murdered more than 3,500 people and injured more than 50,000.

If 1/6 isn't properly addressed, you will see something similar in the USA.
