"Some early thoughts on the various 3rd party/rouge candidate efforts." "Rouge" or "Rogue"? :) Rouge kinda works. also, Simon, I would have loved to share the Admiral Kirby video with my crowd on Linkedin, but it's not clippable. Is there a way for you to post videos so we can share 'em? Also, you might want to up your LinkedIn game. your profile still has you at NDN/NPI.

Simon, thank you for Aaron’s pod. I am literally savoring Hopium with homemade chocolate chip cookies, a glass of cold raw milk, no kids at home, and a cat on my lap! This is the kind of ecosystem and messages the US and the world needs more of! Enjoy family, it is great! Hug from NC.

Thanks for your work. I grew up in Ireland and I live in Canada. Starting in 2016 a series of family and personal illness gave me time to read and study extensively. I now subscribe to numerous newsletters from ecologically focused independent media outlets. Last June I discovered the work of Heather Cox Richardson and I have learned a great deal from Heather. This is how I your work. I do need to read and listen more. For almost two weeks I have the pleasure of returning to Ireland. Staying with close friends for a week I watched the nightly news with them. Now I am staying in an Air BNB. I have been searching for weather news and information about tourist attractions. Sky news keeps popping up and I see that the Australians and others are pummelling President Joseph Biden and pushing that he is senile. I am curious to know how you suggest I respond if at all. I am curious as to who the Brits are that push this and the links to ? Rupert Murdoch . In Canada also my very anti American Pakistani friends also share these clips. Personally I am a huge fan of President Joseph Biden. I am unsure what to make of these clips and also why and by whom these clips are being pushed so much in the english -speaking world ? Also what you feel is the best response to these very ugly attacks.


I am not sharing this clip because I agree with these to me very disrespectful and irritating commentators. I am just wondering how best to respond ? Kind Regards, Frances Scully

Again I wish to find ways of supporting

your hopeful approach and I wonder how

to respond to Sky media’s constant attacks on President Biden. It seems that some with very deep pockets continue a

very insidious and nasty attack on President Biden. I am wondering what the best approach is. Does anyone have any data/ ideas? I find these constant attacks very upsetting.
