I am comforted by the flurry of news regarding high-level bad guys in the US receiving subpoenas (Bannon) and Trump’s potential indictment for espionage.
I have been writing about US traitors for seven years, and although I am dismayed at the length of time it is taking to see justice brought to bear, I am grateful to see that America may still have a spine.
The pro-Kremlin propagandists are out in full force - wrapping themselves in the US flag, quoting the bible, and spouting Russian talking points.
So allow me to wash away their unreality by reading you vital quotes from Timothy Snyder.
Stay kind, stay focused, and stay loud.
Bette Dangerous is a reader-funded magazine. Thank you to all monthly, annual, and founding members. Thank you as well to all those who support my work with your generous coffee tips and who buy my ebooks. Some of you prefer making subsidizing donations via venmo, and it’s always greatly appreciated. Thank you to everyone who pitches in with a monthly membership - each time they come in, it always feels like pennies from heaven.
A private link to an annual membership discount for older adults, those on fixed incomes or drawing disability, as well as activists and members of the media is available upon request at email@example.com.
Our next Bette Dangerous ‘Speakeasy’ Zoom for paid members is Sunday, June 18; Paid members also receive invites to our weekly Bette’s Happy Hour, a wellness checkin every Tuesday. This Tuesday, our checkin is at 5 pm PT. Yesterday, we had a very special guest pop in and I’ll be writing more about that in Bette’s Weekly Roundup.
Thank you to everyone - you must know how grateful I am for all your monthly and annual memberships and all your additional support. I was seriously spoiled by many of you on my bday. Thank you! 💘
New members: Please peruse the archives - the ‘Fight Fascism’ series is vital.
