Records: Trump allies behind rally that ignited Capitol riot By ⁦@AP⁩’s ⁦@rplardner⁩ and ⁦@MRSmithAPhttps://t.co/FQvhTm6ywe

🧵The AP’s review found at least 3 Trump campaign aides named on the permit for the Jan. 6 event. Megan Powers was listed as one of two operations managers for the Jan. 6 event, and her LinkedIn profile says she was the Trump campaign’s director of operations into January 2021. https://t.co/OFPPhBPw3n

“A colossal failure at every level of government” Nearly one year after the U.S. found its first known coronavirus case, the country is hurtling toward 400,000 total deaths, and cases, hospitalizations and deaths have reached record highs. https://t.co/umCswfSS3P

A very personal thread about this story and why I increasingly believe addressing the rot caused by QAnon will be one of the Biden administration’s most important and most difficult tasks. https://t.co/oe1jNGYG4R

And I remember this big deal American dude came to our school to give a speech some time after the quake, and I’ve only now figured out it was Walter Mondale, US Ambassador to Japan at the time.

Random, but the quake also ruined KitKats for us (another new flavor, how FASCINATING 🙄) Nestle donated/dumped tons of them at local schools after the quake and we were up to our eyelids w/ KitKats for months. I’ve never been excited to eat one again. (Thanks Nestle, but still.)

It bears repeating: “Far-right extremism is not a small-fringe worldview, it’s not an insular cult that only reaches a few dozen or a few hundred people — it’s a wide-ranging worldview embedded in American society.” https://t.co/wrmuThiqkl

If one more person tells me “yes but history will remember that Trump was impeached twice,” I’m going to scream. Have y’all met a history textbook? Has history ever spared you hurt or harm?

I have bit of a doom-and-gloom mentality, and I swear it goes back to the Kobe quake! I feel like something terrible can happen at any moment, including my apartment collapsing on top my head..

How do we cope with disaster trauma? That’s something I’ve been thinking about as we face more and more climate-related disasters. Physical survival is paramount, of course, but the PTSD following experiences like this can be crippling, especially when you’re a kid.

It’s the small things you remember — I’d just gone to see “Speed” with my school friends the weekend before the quake. Next time I walked past, the movie theater was gone.

In the years since, I’ve been in a head-on bus collision, faced down a burglar in my apt, lived thru a nuclear disaster, survived Covid (and what else, a coup?).. but the Kobe quake has still been the most traumatic, as in the world literally falling apart.

If the 5:46am quake had struck two hours later, there’s a good chance I would’ve been on one of those trains, together with tens of thousands more people. But many people died when their homes collapsed, or perished in fires triggered by the quake.

Not CG. This is what people awoke to 26 years ago after just 20 seconds of tremors. The Great Hanshin earthquake of January 17, 1995 https://t.co/WsAuURxZSo

You can see my beloved Hankyu train in the rubble after the 1995 Kobe quake. It took less than 5 months for Hankyu to get its entire network running again. https://t.co/8b94Wz8s3e https://t.co/2UfAbU9diD

It's not, at all, unless you're so fragile and insecure that you define masculinity by a person's ability to coldly dominate everything and everyone. https://t.co/vKBvkbafTL

A flier for a pro-Trump rally in Japan with the words to Japan’s national anthem as well as the words to The Star-Spangled Banner...the latter written entirely in katakana. 🤣 https://t.co/djvGJ2QBwX
