1. My dad died in 1962 when I was 9. At the time of his death he had taught me to fear two groups: the KKK & the John Birch Society. Birch is claimed to have died in 1945. My dad's first assignment after he and his pregnant bride arrived in Shanghai in 1947
2. left my mom alone in Shanghai after he was drawn by lot from the pool of foreign correspondents to go north to where the #Communists were going to repatriate two American flyers, I think the story was they were part of the 1942 Tokyo raid. When my dad got to the exchange he
3. interviewed the pilots. I remember distinctly my dad and mother later confirming many times that he was told, "Jack, they treated us great. We ate when they went hungry." My father posted by wire and the Nationalists went nuts especially the Sung family's Madame Chiang who
4. briefly had my father declared PNG for the story. The damage these lies have caused is immeasurable. And noteworthy, Fred Koch, the great anti-Communist, built the Soviet oil industry and fueled the rise of the Communist state.
5. Then Koch returned to the USA, to destroy it. I pray that Merrick Garland can link Koch to the attack and so I can live long enough to see the Koch spawn put in a cell to rot. @SenateGOP @HouseGOP @LeaderMcConnell @GOPLeader @Heritage @GroverNorquist @uscourts

1. @Interior @USIndianAffairs @SecDebHaaland How about conferencing with the indigenous groups to find names to replace the derogatory names that can help preserve these original American languages to the best extent possible.
2. The names can help teach these languages and preserve this critical cultural resource for generations. The Irish did this at the start of a long process of reviving their language. @indiancountry @nativenews_net @nCAI1944 @indianz @cherokeeNation @vinceshilling @center4native
3. What I would love to see here in #Hawaii are street signs with the Hawaiian name and a small English translation. Adults might ignore it but children will learn when their brains are in the language phase and the language will be reborn not just in the indigenous world

1. @TheDemocrats are justifiably excited about this monumental achievement but it is unlikely to leave the Senate in the same form. Challenge will be whether our members in the House who want fast change are willing to accept a 9/10th of a loaf or just get nothing.
2. I think the immigration and family leave will be a heavy lift. If immigration and the family leave are taken out of the Senate version, we can use that as a motivation to win the midterms and hold the House. This struggle for working families didn't just start. It's been a
3. long struggle and much more needs to be done. The threat to all we hope for looms in the voting rights assault we see daily. Passing the Civil Rights Act amendments can get us the majority for the foreseeable future and make everything possible.

1. @Lawrence's Last Word was to the women to whom racist misogynist @JohnKennedyLA again proved his un-American credentials, first evidenced by Kennedy spending 4th of July in the Kremlin on secret trip. Previously I missed the important fact & why Gomer had to ask the question.
2. The GQP is losing it over the @USTreasury rules about bank information that requires reporting for small amounts. IMO it's meant to stop major way drug & other criminal proceeds are laundered. I once saw a SAR. I remember it was on authority of the
3. Comptroller of the Currency. An obscure federal position but key to fighting the mob, including the mob headed by @JohnKenneyd's host at the Kremlin. And that's who Kennedy attacked her for. And the beauty of this is that she will hold the power with that new FINCEN rule

1. Suggestion for avoiding the humanitarian disaster in #Afghanistan:

a. UN Security Council (@UNDPPA) authorizes a small force to take control of #Kabul.
b. UN force be made up of Muslim nations with an order by the Taliban that they consent to the deployment.
2. c. Bulk of #Taliban fighters withdraw, likely to areas they held in the west prior to to April 14, 2020.
d. UN and other UN vetted relief agencies be provided transport to get food to people impacted by the famine.
e. In Kabul, a bicameral governing counsel is established.
3. One unit with one representative per capita by population from the provinces and a second unit with one each per province akin to Loya Jirga to establish a new Constitution.
f. Taliban will not waive any claim to sovereignty and no party will be required to concede the point.
