Here is some free writing advice: Stop Not Writing. You can turn off the tv for one hour. (The breaking news is that no one knows anything yet.) And in that hour, you can get 45 minutes of bad writing done, and this will change your whole day. Just one bad sentence after another.

Six days after the terrorist attack in Christchurch, the New Zealand government has BANNED all semi-automatic weapons. There have been 1981 mass shootings since Sandy Hook, and the United States government has not passed ONE new law to protect its citizens.

Calling Manafort’s life of criminal collaboration with murderous dictators and of stealing tens of millions of dollars from American taxpayers “otherwise blameless” is a sick joke. It’s as though Judge Ellis himself was angling for the pardon Trump dangled in front of Manafort.

‘You’re a millionaire funded by billionaires... and what they want you to do is scapegoat immigrants instead of talking about their tax evasion.’ Whoah. The direct, relentless clarity of this exchange is 🔥🔥🔥.

I was wrong, obviously. I have recanted at length, elsewhere. I was coming from reporting on the Kurdish uprising, including running from from his helicopter gunships with thousands of desperate civilians. War doesn’t work, especially when waged by feckless idiots.

1/ Here’s the interview that and Fox News didn’t want you to see. I chose to release it, because I think we should keep talking about the corrupting influence of money in politics. It also shows how angry elites can get if you do that.

12 years from now, we could be listening to a President delivering the , telling us that the worst effects of climate change have become irreversible. Or we could be celebrating the transformational action we took to save the planet. It’s up to us.

Washpost says is using book tour to test the water and poll his chances. I've decided to do same and announce my presidential run at Barnes & Noble. Clearly a hack writer-shaped hole in current field that needs filling.
