President Biden made an unexpected stop in Kyiv on Monday ahead of his planned trip to Poland to mark the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The logistical complexity of his clandestine trip to Ukraine is a story in itself.
Biden Makes Clandestine Trip To Kyiv Via Plane, Train
The trip was months in the making, with the President, who visited Ukraine seven times while Vice President, asking his advisors to arrange a visit since the war began. Here’s a look at the complex logistical details that underpinned Biden’s trip:
- Contrary to Biden’s public schedule, the President quietly departed Joint Base Andrews at 4:00 am ET on Sunday
- Rather than use an Air Force VC-25 (the modified 747-200 typically used to carry the POTUS ), the POTUS used an Air Force C-32 (a modified 757-200 typically used for smaller airports)
- Air Force One landed first at Ramstein Air Base in Germany at 5:13 pm to refuel
- Air Force One landed at Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport (RZE) in southeastern Poland at 7:57 pm
- Biden and his small entourage departed for Przemyśl Główny rail station, where he boarded a rail car in an eight-car train bound for Kyiv
- The journey to Kyiv took 10 hours and he arrived Monday morning at sunrise
- After meeting with Ukrainian President Zelensky and visiting the US Embassy, Biden returned to Poland via the same train that took him to Kyiv
- He arrived back in Poland just after 10:00 pm
Biden met with the President of Poland earlier today and will deliver remarks later today reflecting upon the one-year anniversary of the war.
“One year later, Kyiv stands. And Ukraine stands. Democracy stands.”
One might wonder if I was on the White House Advance Team. 😉
Biden’s secret trip to Ukraine involved the use of a smaller jet and a long train ride. What impressed me most about the whole journey is that it was actually kept secret until Biden and Zelensky were sighted walking together in central Kyiv.
There’s no word yet if the ghost of Angelo Negri traveled with Biden as the conductor of his train car. 😉
And a note for the comments. This story isn’t so much about Biden as it is about the way in which a President of the United States secretly traveled to Ukraine, where I happened to just miss him. So while it may be tempting to talk about how great Biden is or how horrible it is that he visited Kyiv before visiting the Ohio train derailment site, can we please just keep the conversation off the man and on the way in which the man traveled…thank you in advance.

“ So while it may be tempting to talk about how great Biden is…”
LOL, don’t worry, that’s not tempting. At all.
Trump was going to go too, but he had a Big Mac eating contest to attend
I think you’re confusing Trump with your daily routine.
I’m not clicking it. It’s probably a link of you doing somethin that would get you arrested in most states.
It’s from ABC News, it’s clean. It’s just your hero lining up for his pre dinner snack
I wonder how presidents in general feel whenever they have to use the C-32 instead of the VC-25. Is it like people seeing they’re going from a first class seat on a 787 to one on a 737? Do they complain about it the way some frequent flyers do?
Looks like they upgraded the interior on the 757s to be posh enough to satisfy all but the most discerning diplomat, technocrat, or Mr. Matt:
Certainly a step up from the last Delta 757 I flew on–not sure why people outside the flight deck are enamored with the plane, from a passenger’s perspective they’re just 737s that take longer to board and deplane.
In before the politicos hijack the comments. Didn’t expect this post to be informative and have a few witty lines.
Very impressed. The 10 hour train ride would have a security nail-biter.But I read that Russia was informed at some point before arrival as a “courtesy”.
Brandon did absolutely nothing. He was simply told to enter in the plane as he is told everyday. He probably had no idea where he was going. He just follows orders.
So much butt hurt
Good morning to everyone except the Ukraine first, America Last – Biden regime. Today is Tuesday, February 21st and Joe Biden is still the worst president in United States History.
You calling him Brandon tells us so much about you.
I didn’t, the NBC reporter did.
60% of pedophiles are lgbt.
I was happy Pres Briden made the trip. And contrary to Santastico’s claim, apparently the military and Secret Service was against the trip, and Biden and a few aides pushed for it. Some of the early leaks from the Ukrainian press almost spoiled it, but still it went off well.
Don’t be shocked when Biden runs again in 2024, and ends up winning again. Guy has been underestimated for a while.
@Anthony: let me be the one to break you the news. Santa Clauss and Eastern Bunny don’t exist. Yes, I know you will be shocked for a while but it will pass. Also, you can stop wearing that mask. Covid is no longer a problem.
Not sure I’ve ever read a more delusional comment on LALF as far as your last point goes. America is really lost when fools want war criminals reelected.
Are you aware this war could have already been ended with diplomacy? Or nah.
Or did you also think Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Price for bombing Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and more?
Calling the warmongers “underestimated” is about as laughable as any comment could ever be.
Neville Chamberlain, is that you?
You are going to need to change your name and bait me with more than this going forward. Comments with you and your alt Aaron are never productive. Don’t have time for your games anymore. You’re living in the real world.
Meaning: step up your game.
You are embarrassing yourself. Even conservatives on here think you’ve lost your mind. Stay on Truth Social, your insane rantings aren’t going to change anyone’s mind
I’m not a conservative, so I don’t care what conservatives think of me—or anyone else at this point.
I’m me. A human. Politically independent. Not bound to doctrine or party. Freedom of thought. Diversity of thought.
Truth Social is a great place to learn breaking news that isn’t picked up by MSM.
People think I’m crazy? Wow, I never would have guessed. More groundbreaking comments from BB later.
Check back for more.
I wouldn’t be shocked considering all the fraud.
Geez.. what is it you people… you have explicit instructions “…can we please just keep the conversation off the man and on the way in which the man traveled…”
And of the 5 comments, 3 of you had such a burning desire to throw some political comment in there you chose to
ignore the instructions… WHY?!
Patrick – I only responded in kind because of the other posts 🙂
Guilty as charged though
The most fascinating part of the story I read was that the U.S. gave Russia advance notice of seven hours that Biden was visiting. As clandestine as it was, Russia was warned in advance.
@Stuart . Yes the heads up was a “courtesy” to behave or possible nose rubbing. I found it risky.
In retrospect I do see it as savvy. Odds are Russian intelligence knew anyway the moment satellites picked up where Air Force One was landing and the waiting train. By officially informing them, the U.S. removed Russia’s ability to launch a missile attack on the train and claim later it was an accident and “how would they know about Biden being there.”
Not really that interesting or surprising. What if Russia thought the train had weapons on it only? Or was preparing a large offensive that day to cut off supply lines from the west to the east? Unlikely, but you never know. It would have been reckless to not let Russia know.
I bet there’s been quite a bit of behind-the-scenes talking between the two countries over the past year. The DC-Moscow hotline exists for a reason.
Wait, so the train ride to Kyiv was 10 hours or the from when he landed in Poland? Either way, pretty impressive considering his age to be doing so much travel. I’m half his age and was exhausted after a IAH-TPE direct on EVA business (probably because I just can’t sleep on planes).
10 hours on the train.
To keep it on topic, if you follow the link above to the USAF site for the C32 the second photo on the site isn’t the 757 version it is one of the 737 variants they also have stationed at Andrews. Whoops!
Is this the first time the B757, rather than the B747, has been used to carry a President across the Atlantic? I find that the most interesting part of the story.
Impressive logistics. More than a few sleepless nights for those in charge of bringing a sitting president into a war zone, I’m sure.
The Biden good/bad arguments are for small minds. The burning untouchable question for an air travel website that no one has yet had the guts to ask is: when those 757s wear out, does the US do the right thing by replacing them with A321neos, or are they going with MAX 10s?
It would be as big of a political thing if the USAF went with any Airbus over any Boeing. No travel blog is ever going to ask that question because the answer is obvious.
Undoubtedly. But as this comment thread is going to devolve into tangential squabbling, I was hoping it could go the mildly interesting route of which narrow body airliner is better vs. the tiresome predictable route it has already taken.
We’re sick of the predictable and tiresome, too. We didn’t ask to be brought to the brink of nuclear war. We didn’t vote for this. So sorry we care. Do you realize how it insane it sounds to think citizens would keep quiet about this proxy nuclear war?
Talk about your planes all day long. Some of us will focus on the bigger problems. Multiple conversations and threads can still exist.
@AJ “talk about your planes all day”. Yes this is a travel blog. Your posts are disruptive. Way off topic. Perhaps you should read a few history books.
I kindly ask if you can dial it back a little. Please and thank you. Normally I would not address someone about this but I can’t be the only one getting a headache.
It’s all fair in love and war, Maryland. This war that we didn’t ask for is a priority. Until Matthew changes his comment policy or I’m taken out, I’m going to keep speaking to what I feel is correct, when and where I want to do so. That is what freedom of speech is. You have it and I have it. That is what the internet was created for—collaboration. Not to have travel silos.
With people like AJ and Santastico, good luck.
Yeah, Phil. Small minded people discuss ways to avoid nuclear war. FOH.
The warmongers are trying to drag us into WW3, which can only end in one way: nuclear annihilation and the suffering and death of all our loved ones. Zelensky, Biden, NATO, congressional and media neocons are insane. And we are insane if we passively allow them to lead us into this holocaust like sheep to the slaughter. We find hope in the fact that the vast majority of Americans are sane, but sanity is not enough. We also need courage. The courage to stand up to the powerful warmongers, and in unison declare: “No! we will not allow you to destroy our families, communities, environment, country, and world!”
That was a non-partisan joke, not bait for the humorless and unhinged.
WWIII: such a laughing matter.
Phil, you raised a really interesting question. I agree with the sentiment that there’s no way the US Government doesn’t go with Boeing. The aircraft will be incredibly modified, and may even necessitate security clearances that people at Airbus couldn’t obtain. Would the smallest 787 be a reasonable replacement? I know the benefit of the 757 variant is that it can access smaller airfields. The 757 really was a great aircraft.
Ukraine is a corrupt dictatorship. It is not a democracy. No free speech, no free press, no free religion. It’s terrible that Russia invaded. But if it was a huge threat to the rest of the world, don’t you think rich European countries like France and Germany pull out all the stops and fund Ukraine? Why is it the USA proving 90% of the cash? And Mrs Z takes shopping trips to Paris? Perhaps it’s to Zelenskyy mouth shut about all the cash they gave to American politicians kids? 10% for the Big Guy?
If someone invaded me, I’d fight back and be thankful for any assistance.
Well maybe there you should ask also why this all happened.It is not lile Putin had a bad night sleep and decided to attack Ukraine.This was years in making and Us has it fair share on it as well. Those are facts.
Some corruption, perhaps; but I don’t understand the basis for the claims of “… not a democracy. No free speech, no free press, no free religion.” Events surrounding President Zelenskyy’s election rebut such accusations. It seems to describe Russia much more so than Ukraine.
As a Catholic and an intelligence officer and soldier who studied, stood against and was prepared to fight communism, we never associated Marxist communists with evil.
Yes, they reviled and banned any churches, God and the devil did not exist in the communist lexicon, and Marxist communism was supposedly a philosophy to benefit the poor and downtrodden.
But here is the nexus between God and Lucifer:
According to Marx, the abolition of religion is necessary so people can become their own God, but to place a finer point, the communist party can become their God.
And so began the reign of evil for anyone living in communist-ruled countries. One-third of their populations were coerced or bribed to report on the rest of the population. This broke the trust between all people and raised paranoia in the individual.
Does all this sound familiar?
Those who resisted, were and are, in communist countries, imprisoned, and savagely tortured by communists, whose religion is the party. They justify their horrifying, monstrous behavior by stating that the ends justify the means — that a dead man is better than an anti-communist man.
We have conversations with friends who laugh away our concerns and try to tell us these are small fringe groups (conspiracy theorists!), this is simply politics as usual, America goes through these cycles and this current crisis is just another “politics as usual” cycle.
Far from it!
Remember, Joseph Stalin, less than a hundred years ago, was only one of the dictators of the past century. Stalin had a policy called “inclusiveness.”
Well, his inclusive policies killed as many as 60 million of his own citizens and imprisoned many more.
Other familiar names are Mao Zedong, Pol Pot and Adolf Hitler. And remember, only 85 years ago (1938), Hitler was dubbed Time Magazine’s Man of the Year (he then proceeded to exterminate 6 million Jews and millions of others). Think about that for a second.
And keep in mind, during World War II alone, the U.S. military sacrificed over a million killed and wounded.
Evil exists, and it is not something that existed only during biblical times or when Christ walked on Earth. It is all around us. We should know better, and we should act smarter, but tragically, we do neither, and therefore we find ourselves at this historic moment of peril.

Biden caught on hot mic in Poland. “you think any of these guys bought that bullsh**?”
Russia suspends only remaining major nuclear treaty with US
@AJ I would really recommend you turn off Newsmax because the vitriol in your comments doesn’t seem healthy. A lot of people in our party had fun mocking liberals over Trump derangement syndrome, and holy cow do you sound like one of those liberals. FWIW, I am completely shocked that Biden has taken a page from Winston Churchill and stood tall to the threat of authoritarianism as opposed to a Neville Chamberlain or Joe Kennedy view.
I don’t watch Newsmax, OAAN, FOX, or any network or cable news aside from the main NBC News desk. I use Instagram and Truth Social for news primarily. Google News occasionally.
Office of the President > Office of the Puppet
“I use Instagram and Truth Social for news primarily.”
Now I see the problem
It’s a new world. Sorry you’ll be left behind.
Trolls need to be fed.
From the reports I receive from many people around the world, Europe, specifically, is already engendered in the Marxist/communist philosophy and its controls and restrictions (and these restrictions on their liberties tighten more and more every day).
If America falls to the dictates of the left, this last bastion of freedom, the shining beacon of goodness and the next best expression of humanity, will be no more.
Remember, no country that lost its moral compass and character has ever kept its liberty.
–Gen. Flynn to St. Thomas More Society, February 20
Michael Flynn pled guilty for conspiring with Russia. This is not your best source here. As for Europe, the vast majority of European governments are on a scale of right wing (UK, Italy) to center-left (France) to left-wing (Germany), but none of those countries fit under Marxism. Communism in Europe died hard in 1991. Authoritarianism maybe not, but Communism definitely is.
Since ancient times, we have fairly good records of tyrannical leaders — emperors, tsars, kings, dictators or power seekers by any other name. Men of this kind, many certifiable psychopaths, have been within humanity forever.
However, they never had the power and the means to enslave the entire globe and control all of humanity — until today.
The internet and all other wonders of advances in technology give power-hungry elites the means to turn humanity into robotic slaves performing at the whims of their overseers.
Communism takes full control over your life. Once it gains full control, all decisions are based on the communist authorities’ wishes, not yours. They dictate what you will do, where you will work, what you can become.
Many Americans now voice great distrust in federal institutions and websites that target and troll all of us with their mis-, dis- and mal-information government task forces. This evil wants to control your political thoughts and actions today and tomorrow and to control every aspect of your life.
The power elites — George Soros, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and others (this list is growing) — are all billionaires and allies of the European, Russian and Chinese elites. These would like to have control over the entirety of the globe.
The question, then, is why? They are already rich and powerful.
In a nutshell, that’s just it — they seek dominion over the entire globe, and this would be the final power grab and control over billions of slaves.
Many of the elites have stated their goals very publicly and quite openly. Most of them believe this planet is overpopulated and humanity must be reduced.
And, of course, there is the Great Reset.
In 2020, global elites met at the World Economic Forum and launched the Great Reset Initiative to transform the world’s economy.
Klaus Schwab, director and founder of the WEF, with the help of America’s elites, wants to change capitalism and affect America’s way of life forever.
Schwab describes his “Fourth Industrial Revolution.” In my view, after studying it intensely, it is a carry-over from the Third Reich with sinister consequences, especially for America.
The Great Reset gives us a cashless society (digital currency) and “environmental justice (ESG scores).”
There is simply insufficient time for me to go through the details of something I have become all too familiar with over my lifetime of service in the military and certainly over the past few years. As President Trump said, we have skipped over socialism and jumped right into communism.
It seems that most of the world is at war and America is the last entity standing between the leftist elites and freedom for the globe.
For the American Republic, it is our Constitution that still offers hope.
As in our Declaration of Independence, if we hold these truths to be self-evident and we believe in the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle us, then to preserve our freedoms, we must push back on the idea that government can be our deity.
—Gen. Flynn to St. Thomas More Society, February 20
I know you’re a troll, and I find you entertaining, so I won’t tell you to stop, but don’t you understand that a lot of people on here either live in Europe, or travel there very regularly? I think most of us may have a better view of what’s happening on the ground in Europe than the “reports you receive.”
Trying to determine what to speak about this evening, I have chosen to speak about evil and the evils of communism. What it means, where we are and what it requires to be defeated (again). We are in the midst of a war; this is not politics as usual. We live in trying perilous times.
I’ll begin with Ronald Reagan’s famous words about the former Soviet Union. He called it “the Evil Empire.”
President Reagan had clarity and discernment, and he understood the power of words. And Russia was evil in Reagan’s time as it is now. What I want to do is expand on the meaning of the word “evil.”
It is a biblical word that more than any other word describes the polarity between heaven and earth. “Evil” means willfully doing what is determined to be wrong in every moral society. Its synonyms are “foul,” “corrupt,” “ungodly,” “unholy,” “wicked,” “degenerate” and so on.
In today’s America, there are two very split camps. The reasons for this split are many, and I’ll speak to a few. But it began slowly and crept into our society with a vengeance.
We lost our moral compass, and no country in the history of the world that lost its character kept its liberty. In fact, all nations that gave up their freedoms never got them back.
The progressive movement needed to destroy the very fabric that makes America and our people unique and exceptional in our own right.
For instance, the sexual revolution, with all its diversity and the push to equalize all sexual behaviors as the norm, together with the creation of a culture of drug dependency, transgenderism and immorality, created even more division, further isolating factions.
The hallmark of socialism or communism or evil is destruction. And so the destruction of the family was next. We have seen the ridiculousness of families depicted on TV. These depictions are laughable but very serious. They represent a blend of improbable characters thrown together to make the family unit one big joke.
This step was then followed by the indoctrination of young minds about their gender and about what’s right and wrong. The family unit was destroyed, and the rearing of children has been left to the progressives who infiltrate every aspect of our education system (from elementary school to college).
And, of course, churches were destroyed, primarily from the inside out. If you truly believe in God and the biblical tenets of Catholicism, these tenets cannot be successfully indoctrinated.
Those discerning (or questioning) among us noticed that instigators or agitators in our midst began telling us that we were all children of God and therefore we were responsible for all our brothers in the world and needed to take all of them into our care (vis-à-vis the very intentional southern invasion of America).
The COVID pandemic (or the China virus) gave multiple governments the power to enclose us in our homes, close our schools and businesses and force inoculations on people — whether we wanted them or not.
It also did severe damage to the American election system (and we see the results of that damage continuing to play out).
Many of you may be aware of this political tsunami rolling across America. These steps are being planned, and some are already being implemented — remember, “you’ll own nothing and be happy.”
The worldwide COVID control was an exercise — a harbinger, if you will — for people’s minds and bodies. Talk about Fifth Generation Warfare: A mass psychosis psychological operation was inflicted upon the world.
I want you all to go back out into your communities, your clubs, your churches, your businesses and the world and stand firm for what is good, right and free in our country. And above all else, pray for our country.
—Gen. Flynn to St. Thomas More Society, February 20
Why did they sound the air raid sirens?
It was reported they were on to be symbolic. Aka theater for this visit.
They went off all over the country. It’s routine and happens every day. It was not isolated to Kiev. It’s triggered when MIG fighters take off from across the border, which occurred and what triggered the national alert system. Please, be better informed.
Your points are true overall but I’ve read plenty of reporting on the sirens myself. This has been a widely discussed topic during this charade. It has been reported they were specifically on for this visit. I believe that.
Suspension of disbelief, sometimes called willing suspension of disbelief, is the avoidance of critical thinking or logic in examining something unreal or impossible in reality, such as a work of speculative fiction, in order to believe it for the sake of enjoyment. Aristotle first explored the idea of the concept in its relation to the principles of theater; the audience ignores the unreality of fiction in order to experience catharsis.
Also see: credulous dupe.
CNN reporter Alex Marquardt: “I’ve been here for the past five days. I have not heard any explosions. I have not heard any air sirens, until about half an hour ago, right when President Biden was in the center of Kyiv,” Marquardt said from the ground in Kyiv.
Think Zelenskyy asked him for anything???
Long range weapons, a blank check, and god knows what else.
Yes, he definitely asked for more of my tax dollars.
As much as I am a fan of having proof that US equipment can kick Russians’ asses left and right, I am displeased that we are yet again paying for another war even after we pulled out of Afghanistan.
Biden told him he’d only get the money if he digs up dirt on Don Jr.
I see your TDS is still rampant.
I wonder why they didn’t drive from RZE to Kyiv – does a train running on tracks through a predetermined route actually offer better security? Also, I think Romania is a part of NATO, and SCV airport is slightly closer to Kyiv (by car), but it never seems to be used as a starting point for a journey into Ukraine.
Seeing it’s said that Russia is targeting the biolabs and those associated with them, I’d have to see the map to see if any of the 46 labs—that we know about so far—are near the locations you mentioned or not. If not, then idk.
The trip was NOT clandestine. Putin was informed ahead of time. Only the American public and the press was kept in the dark.
I suppose keeping it under wraps protected President Biden from rogue Wagner mercenaries but that’s all. The Russians were notified ahead of time so that they would not accidentally start World War III by killing the President by mistake.
It seems it wasn’t clandestine for Matthew either, apparently. He jokes about being on the white house advance team, but it seems he’s telling us without really telling us that he had inside info on this trip. I hope I’m wrong, but the timing is very coincidental considering his background. I can’t be the only one thinking this. Impossible to know who is trustworthy in the war games era.
While any plane the Pres is on is typically called Air Force One, this flight didn’t use that callsign for security. It was assigned SAM 060 (“Special Air Mission”).
I just read the AF1 call sign hasn’t been used in a long time. Any truth? Not sure how to look this up.
@Matthew – I’m genuinely sorry that the comments devolved into a S#!%show of petulance. Props to you for trying.
CNN reporter Alex Marquardt:
“I’ve been here for the past five days. I have not heard any explosions. I have not heard any air sirens, until about half an hour ago, right when President Biden was in the center of Kyiv,” Marquardt said from the ground in Kyiv.
Video clip of him saying this available on twitter/google/elsewhere
Well I heard several so this guy wasn’t paying attention.
That I don’t doubt but before or after the photo op?
Very hard for the average person to get accurate info. conflicting stories everywhere. I’m not blaming that on you but it’s becoming harder and harder for anyone to know what is true and not. I guess that’s how the powers that be they want it. Mass chaos and confusion.
@AJ Maybe it’s hard to get accurate info given people like you jump on anything anyone writes (factual or not) that might give you a bullet against Biden and just expand the lies. You read something and post it in comments with little or no consideration to the big picture. And yes, that works on both sides.
You are entitled to your opinion, Stuart, as is everyone. A huge amount of my posts have been factual. Out of hundreds of comments, I can remember perhaps three, maybe four, where the reporting ended up not being correct, two of which are on this page. That is pretty good odds. I am not in the business of sharing wrong information. Again, it’s all fair in love and war, and this sadly is a war. With multiple outlets reporting, including the hailed CNN, it seemed logical that the sirens were theater. I’d still bet that they probably were. Either way, many of my posts have been big picture posts. I always think about the big picture. Macro > micro.
I sent this email to Matthew last night:
The short version: I’m sorry for ruining your comments. I really didn’t mean to. Being so upset about the state of things as I’ve been, I just didn’t know how to stop commenting. People hate me and I feel horrible that I have this terrible reputation. I don’t want to ruin yours. Please know that I was only trying to help. I just didn’t know how to help otherwise. I hope you have very safe travels and a very successful life. I won’t stop reading, but obviously this isn’t healthy and everyone agrees. Never meant to hurt Ben [or Gary] either. Misplaced and misguided anger. I had planned to send you a longer email but I am worn out and tired. I don’t know how you do it with kids and a wife and all of the travel. You’re superhuman. Please be safe in Ukraine. It’s a scary world but your bravery is impressive even if we disagree on much or everything. Please don’t hate me. I’ll still be cheering y’all on. I’m just a nobody, as you probably know. I’m sorry. Be blessed. -AJ
P.S. I would comment this directly but this is embarrassing enough. And I’m sorry for the comment about your trip not being clandestine. Wish so bad I could delete so many things I’ve said at times. I’m too blunt and honest and then I regret stating my true feelings. So embarrassing. So sorry. Sincerely sorry. The best apology is changed behavior. I will stop [commenting].
–So, for now, I guess, in essence, you win this one. Perhaps I’ll reappear in the future once I continue to be proven correct in much of what I have shared. However, this isn’t about me or being correct or my ego. It’s about the future of humanity. We face many difficulties as a collective. You have at least one child that I know of from you mentioning. I hope someday you will realize that my intentions were to only to make this world a better place for them. All the best.
And Kyle. I never meant to hurt Kyle either. A former email I sent to Matthew mentioning him:
I never intended to be that guy to totally blow up your blog with counter narrative and theories and straight disrespect and craziness at times. My comments were so often not well thought out and emotional. Composure is hard when you really care. I hope there is no permanent damage and I hope your numbers are good and that all is well. It’s the ASD that causes me to have the issues with the executive functioning part of the brain where I can go to verbal anger easily. I’m really working in it. I’m trying to heal. We all weren’t born with a silver spoon. Again; apologies for coming at you and Kyle so many times. It was never personal and I actually do respect you both. I never understood the hate that he got on Sundays and I’m sorry to have contributed to that. I was just scared about pilot safety and triggered. God knows my heart.
–That’s all, folks. See ya in Alabama.
