About

The Harbor Roundup is a near-daily summary of contextualized facts about the day's events under the Trump administration, with sources included. 

  • I research and write the roundups myself. I'm not a journalist or a politician or a pundit, I just believe there is an urgent need for fact-based, propaganda-free, objective reality (and general awareness) in this country. I think we have to be damn sure exactly what is happening, exactly what/who we're voting for, and exactly what is at stake.

  • Everything is verified and sourced within an inch of its life. Whenever possible (and that's most of the time), those sources are things like official releases and data from federal agencies, actual legislation, video, court filings, congressional records, presidential tweets, etc. Sometimes a report from a news outlet is, itself, the story--I'll make that clear. I frequently omit things that are probably true but can't be sourced to my satisfaction. 

  • As a general rule, everything discussed has Actually Happened. I don't include anything entirely speculative, theoretical, prospective, or opinion-based, with very few exceptions. I include things or omit them at my own discretion. I don't claim comprehensiveness, but I work hard to track down as much as I can. I include applicable context, which is also sourced and accurate.

  • I post these roundups a couple times a week (sometimes more, if I can get the space to write--I have tiny children, a career, and a working spouse). It takes virtually all of my free time to do this, so I'll never waste your time or mine with filler. 

Don't be the frog that gets boiled alive by incrementally hotter water. Be the frog that understands stoves, pots, physics, and the implications of a recipe on the counter titled "Frog's Legs."

Thank you for your investment, your vigilance, your commitment, and your patriotism. Hang in there.

"Knowledge is more than equivalent to force." --Samuel Johnson
