(🔓) RETRO UNLOCKED: The second edition of the RETRO Top NES Homebrews is here! New additions include:

💢 6 New Genre Sections
💢 50 More Ranked Games
💢 100+ Newly Assessed Games
💢 Much More!

I hope you'll read and RETWEET this for any gamers you know!…
1/ One addition I'm really excited about is notations ("🔹" and "🔸") for games that are either NEW to the ranking or have been RE-RANKED (respectively). This allows those who've read Vol. 1 of the ranking to quickly see the changes that have been made—and there are many of them!
2/ Upon request, there's an entirely new MULTIPLAYER ranking—with 29 games achieving main-ranking status already—and a section for ZAPPER games. The "Top 10 Overall" has also added two new games, and there's now developer information available for all Honorable Mention homebrews!
3/ The ranking is also the first article—at either RETRO or PROOF, my two Substacks—to be *optimized for cell phones*, so those reading the (very, very long!) ranking article will now be able to do so on their cell phone and find it *much* less arduous than it might otherwise be.
4/ Full RETRO subscribers get access to Vol. 1 of the ranking, and will always have access to all past editions (e.g., when Vol. 3 is released sometime in March, both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 will be exclusively available to RETRO subscribers). All the more reason to subscribe ($5/mo.)!
TAGS3/ A few final tags: @Arb_and_Delish @nathantolbert @TheMichaelGant @MichiganYeti @homecompmuseum @PixelAmbacht @wrytersview

NOTE: As ever, RETRO can receive NES homebrew review copies as CIB, cart-only or digital ROM (or a combination of these). Contact link in the article!

Thank god almost no one in media is covering the undercount COVID-19 death toll, as we’re at 1.5 million Americans dead in 23 months and if that were widely known along with the fact that 3000 died just yesterday those “getting back to normal” thinkpieces would be harder to write
Also out of bounds would be those fabulous “grandma would have died pretty soon anyway” takes that make Twitter such a great place to be in the midst of thousands of Americans dying daily from a deadly virus Image
Apparently we’re not supposed to care about the elderly dying, or folks with comorbidities, or unvaccinated people, but unfortunately I do because of how I was raised

Also—fun fact—somewhere between 1 in 6 and 1 in 4 of those dying daily are vaccinated and “did everything right”

(ICYMI) In case you missed it, here is the recent NYT story on one of the most dangerous men in America.…
My questions, on reading the article above:

1) Who was the intermediary who helped Flynn get to the Pentagon's civilian leadership?
2) Why is Ezra Cohen-Watnick's claim he declined Flynn credited so easily, when he seems to have remained on Team Kraken's list of presumed allies?
3) Cohen-Watnick's history is as one of Trump's most loyal toadies—which is why he was rewarded with a Pentagon job in the purge Ginni Thomas orchestrated.

What in his history made the NYT credulously report that when Flynn called him he immediately said, "The election is over!"

BREAKING: Author of RNC Resolution Censuring Kinzinger/Cheney for Investigating January 6 Conspiracy and Calling Capitol Riot “Legitimate Political Discourse” Is David Bossie—Who Insurrectionist Charles Herbster Places in Trump’s Insurrection Eve War Room…
(PS) So a Trump agent who is a key witness in the January 6 federal criminal investigation and was appointed by Trump to the Defense Business Board alongside his business partner—former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski—authored a document *suborning domestic terrorism*.
(PS2) This is a very big deal. This confirms that individuals who are witnesses in the January 6 investigation and may have legal liability were behind trying to *punish and intimidate* the very people investigating January 6—which sure sounds like a possible federal crime to me.

BREAKING NEWS: GOP Ceases to Be Political Party, Declares Violence and Sedition “Legitimate Political Discourse”

In a healthy democracy, the GOP—I mean the institution and its leadership, *not* its voters—would now be considered a terrorist organization.…
PS/ The Republican Party has today informed all of its officials, representatives, agents, voters and other adherents that if they commit acts of violence and/or sedition, the party will support them with institutional resources. I don’t know of any other way to define terrorism.
PS2/ This should be the last bus stop for any Republican politicians remaining who don’t support violence/sedition. At this point any pol who continues to maintain professional ties to the GOP is doing so knowing that that entity is indistinguishable from a domestic terror group.

Congress needs Pentagon visitor logs for December 1, 2020 to January 20, 2021—as well as a tick-tock of the movements of Kash Patel, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, Michael Lindell, Sidney Powell and Michael Flynn during this span.

*Much* more was happening at the Pentagon than we realized.
(PS) There is a *reason* Sidney Powell was ensconced at a hotel near the Pentagon writing a coup plot that required aid from Kash Patel and Ezra Cohen-Watnick at the Pentagon. And there is a *reason* Michael Lindell met with Eduardo Bolsonaro in Pentagon City on Insurrection Eve.
(PS2) There’s a *reason* the Army lied about the role of Charles Flynn on January 6. There’s a *reason* a whistleblower now calls Charles Flynn an “absolute liar.” Pentagon ops on January 6 seem to have been coordinated by Kash Patel and Ezra Cohen-Watnick, not Secretary Miller.

(🔐) MAJOR BREAKING NEWS: The National Security Implications of a Newly Discovered January 4 Trump International Hotel Meeting Are Well Beyond What the Washington Post Reported

I hope you'll read and RETWEET this. It expands considerably on WP reporting.…
1/ I'm not going to be able to summarize this article. There's too much in it. The simple fact is that the Washington Post did a great job reporting on this secret January 4, 2021 meeting as breaking news—but didn't fully see the import of its own reporting. That is not a slight.
2/ The curatorial journalism at PROOF has resulted in a detailed timeline of the insurrection—who was with whom at what time and where. So when the Post suddenly reports on a January 4, 2021 meeting and tells us what was discussed in it and who was there, a whole timeline shifts.
