1/ THREAD: Donald Trump's announcement of Ivana Trump's death. #StatementAnalysis #BehaviorAnalysis
2/ Ivana Trump, Donald Trump's first wife passed away earlier today. She was "found unconscious and unresponsive at the bottom of a staircase" in what many are calling suspicious circumstances.
3/ Given that Ivana was Donald Trump's first wife — and that she had accused him of rape, but then recanted — and ...
4/ ... Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, & Donald Trump, Jr. had been scheduled to testify in a civil investigation into Trump's business practices beginning tomorrow and extending through to next week (testimony Trump has sought to delay multiple times) — Ivana's death is suspicious.
5/ A Statement Analysis of Trump's Truth Social Announcement (see above image) of Ivana's passing follows:
6/ "I am very saddened to inform" (Trump is not saddened by Ivana's death, he's saddened [inconvenienced] because he's trying to parrot empathetic behavior, but he swung and missed) — rather than saying "he's saddened by her passing" or "he's mourning the loss of" or similar.
7/ "all of those that [sic] loved her" (Trump did not love Ivana, but 'apparently', other people did.)
8/ Note also, Trump used, "that loved her", rather than, "who loved her".
9/ In this context, "that" connotes an object/objectification, and thus low (or in this case no) empathy — vs if he had used "who", which is a properly used pronoun, which connotes a person, and thus implying empathy.
10/ Simply summarized, in this context, "that" has no empathy and is objectifying — whereas "who" has empathy and is humanizing.
11/ Note Trump did not mention the cause of Ivana's death (i.e., 'after a long illness'), nor the suddenness of her death (i.e., 'passed away suddenly'), but he did mention the specific location.
12/ If you were a third person/obituary writer, medical examiner, or crime investigator — mentioning the home vs. hospital, etc. — and the city where a person passed away is detail often included and/or necessary.
13/ However, outside of Ivana's immediate family, such locational facts are non-emotional details in the context of (what should be) a highly-emotion event — and thus feel quite out of place.
14/ In the context of an announcement of a personal loss of a "loved" one, such detail feels unnecessary.
15/ Intriguing, unnecessary detail is a common signal indicating deception and/or nefariousness — vs people who are being honest tend to describe their feelings rather than describing environmental details.
16/ Note Trump wrote, "she as so proud of them" — Ivana's pride in her children is past tense (as she is deceased), ...
17/ ...while "we were all so proud of her" can (should?) still be present tense, as their pride does not (presumably) end w/ her death. Curious, but perhaps just poor English.
18/ "Rest In Peace, Ivana!" (Here, an exclamation mark is dramatically out of context. "Rest in Peace" with an exclamation mark connotes Ironic Anger, not true feelings of Resting, Peace, or Peacefully Resting.)

1/ Thread: This is the Pipe Bomb that was planted at the Capitol Hill Club (CHC) on the evening of January 5th 2021. This is the same Pipe Bomb that virtually all MSM and social media is falsely calling "The RNC bomb" or "The RNC pipebomb".

Why this misdirection/disinformation? Image
2/ The Capitol Hill Club (CHC) is the building immediately adjacent to the RNC — but crucially, it is a separate building. The CHC is an exclusive invite-only Republican Club. The CHC was at one time the home of Sen. John McCain's parents.
3/ This bomb is only 0.27 miles from the US Capitol. It was found in the early afternoon of January 6th during Donald Trump's speech at the Ellipse (1.80 miles). Why wasn't Trump IMMEDIATELY evacuated to the White House?

1/ THREAD: In the final moments of the Jan. 6th Testimony on June 28th 2022 (Cassidy Hutchinson's live testimony), Rep. Liz Cheney told the world of Donald Trump's witness tampering — yet these crimes were committed via intermediaries.
2/ At the end of yesterday's testimony (the 7th Jan. 6th Testimony), Liz Cheney told us of NEW witness tampering that Trump committed HIMSELF, directly, without an intermediary.
3/ This tells us several things:
• Trump's anxiety is increasing
• Trump's impulse control is diminishing
• Trump's having trouble finding intermediaries to commit felonies (at least wrt to scrutinized witness tampering)
• Trump is a micromanaging fanatic (he always has been)

1/ THREAD: "This first image from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. Known as Webb’s First Deep Field, this image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 is overflowing with detail...."
2/ "... Thousands of galaxies – including the faintest objects ever observed in the infrared – have appeared in Webb’s view for the first time.This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length..."
3/ The many curved slivers of light in this image are entire galaxies, that, from our perspective have had their light bent by massive intervening galaxies in just such a way as to magnify and bend their light.

1/ THREAD: This is a wide angle image of the Jan. 5th DC Pipe Bomber as she rounds a corner at night, walking into an alleyway on the west end of Rumsey Ct. SE in Washington DC.
2/ Recall that this is immediately in back of the Capitol Hill Club (a highly-exclusive Republican club where the second pipe bomb of the night was planted) — and the RNC (the building on which this security camera was mounted and immediately adjacent to the Capitol Hill Club).
3/ Here is the corresponding video from which the image was captured .
Note that as she approaches, rounds, and keeps walking past the corner, she is keeping her head-neck turned downward the entire time.

1/ THREAD: More questions for @January6thCmte to ask the Secret Service: In what Universe would this pipe bomb, placed outside the DNC, on the night of January 5th, 2021 — be overlooked by a routine sweep of the building by Secret Service?
2/ ... (via trained personnel, dogs, electronic sniffers, etc.) and still be there when VP Elect Kamala Harris was in the building the next day?
3/ Give us a complete list of those who knew VP Elect Harris was going to be in the DNC on January 6th 2021?

How safely and by what specific means was that classified information guarded?

1/ THREAD: There are plenty of people who have 'worked hard' most/all of their lives — and who also happened to have privilege (often, white privilege) — and who also had a good amount of luck.
2/ This pattern often results in an otherwise educated adult person who (falsely) believes that all of their 'success' (financial success) is a result of their 'hard work' ...
3/ ... all the while they are completely blind to the profound advantages afforded to them by their privilege/white privilege and to a good amount of dumb luck.

Again, they actually *do* work hard — but therein lies the ruse.
