Yes, THIS is the real story here, the one that will have untold consequences for generations to come... foxnews.com/opinion/roe-v-…
The real story about the leaked draft opinion presumably overturning Roe v Wade isn't the opinion, it's the leak. Now even Supreme Court Justices and their clerks are apparently willing to prostitute their positions to attack their enemies. All that matters anymore is winning.
“One of my ex-wives died, you know, and I was really sad, because it was the wrong one.” -- John Cleese
"They steer a tight ship in squeaky-clean Singapore. No dissent, no opposition, no criticism. It’s like an entire country run by Walt Disney. Disneyland with the death penalty, somebody once called it." -- THE DEAD AMERICAN, Inspector Samuel Tay, #3 bangkokpost.com/world/2301198/…
Friends, I don't want to be boring about this, but I'd just like to remind you that the 6th title in my Jack Shepherd series drops this week (amazon.com/gp/product/B09…). It's a book set in Bangkok 20 years back, a time and place sadly now almost lost except in books and memories.
I’m done with trying to get on Truth Social (like Elon said, a terrible name). No matter how I go at trying to login/register all I see is the something-went-wrong message or ‘access denied.’ How embarrassing. Enough already. I’ll put my chips on Elon and Twitter.
The Thais are obsessed with the idea that the new American consulate in Chiangmai is the heart of a massive American espionage operation, even a secret missile base. Really. Thais have a highly exaggerated sense of their own importance in today's world. thethaiger.com/news/national/…
A ton of people have pre-ordered it, but there are still just a few copies left... 🙂 If you haven't already pre-ordered and you're inclined, the link for that is... amazon.com/dp/B09P7CM792Wu
Justin Bieber is going to perform in Bangkok at ticket prices as high as $500+? Good Lord, seriously???? I wouldn't pay $500 to hear anybody in concert. Well... maybe Elvis. bangkokpost.com/life/arts-and-…
Maybe it is, but Truth Social is still a complete mess. I was put on the waitlist months ago and have heard nothing since. I try to log in and my login credentials are rejected. I try to create a new account and all I see is 'something went wrong.' Forget it. Life is too short. twitter.com/elonmusk/statu…

I haven't looked at Twitter in years, but I see I'm still credited with 55,000+ followers (of whom I suspect, maybe, 10 are real people). Anybody out there?
Fancy a 'trip' to #HONGKONG? Mongkok Station by @JakeNeedham (Michael Connelly with steamed rice) tripfiction.com/mystery-set-in… A gripping storyline that takes you to the heart of the city

Readers: Try @JakeNeedham's Jack Shepherd thrillers, set in Asia. Like pad thai, there’s a bit of everything in them, legal twists, politics, money laundering. Just finished “Laundry Man” and “Killing Plato.” Spicy and very satisfying! On to No. 3... #reading #bookreview #Writers

A popular Brit novelist, Luke Richardson, has released a podcast in which he picks his eight favorite novels 'for transporting you across the world.' And, I'm flattered to say, THE BIG MANGO is on his list in some mighty weighty company. open.spotify.com/episode/6XWPLV…...
For any of you whose names aren't on the list to receive my occasional 'Letters from Asia' (but why wouldn't you be?), here's a link to the most recent one. It offers a few reflections on what it means these days to be an American expatriate. preview.mailerlite.com/j8b4v3

Writing fiction is harder than writing non-fiction... because fiction has to make sense.
"Thai air force personnel are not barred from expressing opinions in a democracy, but they should avoid making remarks that could offend people." Oh my God, the Thai police are offended by his criticism on social media?!? How will they ever survive? bangkokpost.com/thailand/gener…
Thanks so much. We're Asia comrades. Mongkok Station superb. amzn.to/3jZGfYu Would like to have you guest on my Goldster Book show in New Year. goldster.co.uk/book-club twitter.com/JakeNeedham/st…

I'm going to stop wasting any time on Twitter. I have 55,000+ followers, but I haven't gotten more than a handful of responses to any tweet for years, often none at all. It seems obvious that Twitter is blocking me from reaching almost all of those 55,000, but I have no idea why.
Somehow this photo just sums up for me what America has turned into while I've been away...
At least some of the sheep are getting restless... bangkokpost.com/thailand/gener…
Wow, what a shock, huh? Since nothing like this has ever happened anywhere before, who could possibly have seen this coming? Oh, wait... foxnews.com/world/us-milit…
It took ten years to bring this woman to trial? TEN FRIGGIN' YEARS??? There is something seriously wrong with any so-called justice system that takes ten years to bring a woman to trial after she murders her own baby. nypost.com/2021/08/12/cal…
'Screw your freedom'??? Is that because it's pretty much the only thing around he hasn't already tried to screw? nypost.com/2021/08/12/arn…
When a handful of arrogant jackasses at a California Big Tech company are able to tell a United States Senator what he is and is not permitted to say and nobody can do anything about it, something is desperately wrong with this country. nypost.com/2021/08/11/ran…
I’m part of a joint promotion this month with 50+ other crime fiction writers in which each of us is offering you a free copy of one of our novels. Click on the link below and grab all the books you can carry away. You can thank me later. books.bookfunnel.com/pka-crime-give…
Gosh, I'm being recruited to join the Illuminati!
"The Thai Ministry of Health announced nine safe sex guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus." There is no possibility whatsoever that I am going to make any comment about this. You're entirely on your own here. thethaiger.com/news/national/…

There's a bonus the latest 'Letter from Asia' I sent my readers: a link to a promotion I'm in that includes 50 crime novels, and you can carry away all the books you want for... well, absolutely nothing. Surf on over and take a look. Free is free, huh? preview.mailerlite.com/u8p2l2
The blizzard of silly regulations that Thai provincial officials rush to impose every time there is an increase in Covid transmissions here is amazing. So now, if everyone stops drinking alcohol and stays 12 feet from everybody else, we’ll be fine, huh? thethaiger.com/news/phuket/ph…
Yesterday, the New York Post carried another story from Thailand. That one was about hoards of mad monkeys invading Lop Buri. Today they're writing about the Thai government. I make no comment about their editorial juxtaposition. nypost.com/2021/07/30/tha…
What incredible arrogance! YouTube doesn’t like what Sky News is saying so it labels its reports as ‘misinformation’ and blocks its access to YouTube. Until Big Tech is burned to the ground and its ashes scattered to the winds, our freedom is in danger. bangkokpost.com/world/2158107/…
Uh-oh. Speculate on Facebook that the Thai Army might stage another coup — something that it has only done, oh, about forty times since World War II — and those humorless generals will file criminal charges against you. bangkokpost.com/thailand/gener…
A New York City restaurant group is going to demand medical information from people before they'll even consider allowing them to buy their absurdly overpriced meals? Seriously??? New Yorkers really do live in an alternate reality, don't they? foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/coro…
The fundamental corruption of virtually everything in Thailand is even part of the campaign to register people for Covid vaccinations. How low can they go? This low. bangkokpost.com/thailand/gener…
How would you describe the @USEmbassyBKK and @USAmbThailand? I'd say they were arrogant, self-important, self-righteous and, above all, useless in helping US citizens. Here's Micheal Heath's nose-thumbing FU to all Americans living in Thailand: th.usembassy.gov/wp-content/upl

Big Tech thinks they're untouchable, that they can silence anyone they don't like and there's nothing anyone can or will do about it. And you know what? They're probably right. foxnews.com/media/twitter-…

The Thai government is going to cut off internet access for people who post anything they claim is misinformation. Seriously? These guys really aren't geniuses, are they? Bangkok Post: "A VPN service can always be used to mask the IP address of a user." bangkokpost.com/thailand/gener…
Australia is going to call out the army to enforce lockdowns? Good Lord, seriously??? That takes the obscene displays of the arrogance of government to which we have all been treated during this virus panic to a whole different level, doesn't it? bangkokpost.com/world/2156735/…
