Selection of the month:
My senior research project was surrounded around gun casualties and innovating a device in solution to slowing down a shooter in a public building like a school. I spent MONTHS doing EXTENSIVE research with my group on gun casualties in the US let me tell you what I learned.
To the people who make the argument against mental illness, I think it’s incredibly unfair. Most people with mental illnesses are NOT violent.
I challenge those who believe its "another lunatic" to look at countries whom have implemented some form of gun control & for the sake of argument look at the statistics of how many suffer with mental illness in those populations.

(1) Let's talk about mental illness.

I'm an expert, since I'm mentally ill.

"Flat affect."

The Florida mass shooter has it.
(2) Flat affect or reduced affect display or emotional blunting is the inability to express emotions.

This guy has it.
(3) This photo shows that he has no idea how to express emotions.

He's just showing his teeth.

(THREAD) Yulya Alferova—ex-wife of Russian oligarch Artem Klyushin and a member of Trump's entourage in Moscow in 2013—is yet another witness who confirms, albeit inadvertently, Trump lied about what happened at the Ritz Moscow. The list of such witnesses is now very, very long.
2/ With new evidence Trump can be successfully blackmailed over sexual exploits—just as the Steele dossier says he's being blackmailed right now by the Kremlin—and with Trump's recent Twitter lie that no one knew he'd run for president until mid-'15, Alferova is back in the news.
3/ Alferova is significant for several reasons, among them tweets she sent to Trump before he announced his candidacy for POTUS. In the first one, she confirms what Trump has long denied but what her ex-boss Emin Agalarov admitted to Forbes: Trump struck a deal in Moscow in 2013.

I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while, so here goes. A thread on Trump.
I didn’t vote for Trump. To my everlasting shame, I voted for the twerp @Evan_McMullin . That’s a decision I’ve regretted ever since reading his tweets and learning more about his politics.
I blogged about Trump. I said there was no way he could win. txantimedia.com/?p=2193 Obviously, I was wrong.

We posted this analysis of Mueller's Russia indictment late yesterday evening. I'm tweeting it again this morning for those who may have missed it. lawfareblog.com/russian-influe…
Here are a few additional thoughts, which also draw on the discussion I had with David Kris, @RosenzweigP, and @pwnallthethings on the @lawfareblog Podcast yesterday. lawfareblog.com/lawfare-podcas…
(1) The forensics reflected in this indictment are mind-bogglingly impressive. The indictment does not simply reflect a retroactive investigation of a crime. It almost certainly reflects intense NSA penetration of the target in real time.

Very excited to see the Mueller indictment today. We shared Russian ads with Congress, Mueller and the American people to help the public understand how the Russians abused our system. Still, there are keys facts about the Russian actions that are still not well understood.
Most of the coverage of Russian meddling involves their attempt to effect the outcome of the 2016 US election. I have seen all of the Russian ads and I can say very definitively that swaying the election was *NOT* the main goal.
The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Tump and the election. newsroom.fb.com/news/2017/10/h…

New Q post on /ga/ board. Looks like DoJ will be busy investigating the REAL election interference/voter fraud. Looking forward to reading their findings some time next month!
2. Just a reminder that the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was handed off to DHS in January. The draft memo Q posted will have those blanks filled in. Heads are gonna roll!

I'm reading the Mueller indictments in the original PDF-legalease format. All the way through, because I'm not a Republican member of Congress and think this is actually important.
This information warfare campaign was SO. WELL. ORGANIZED. Part of me is like, "Yo, this is great digital marketing." The other part is like, "THIS IS HORRIBLE AND HOW CAN YOU TRUST ANYTHING ANYMORE??!"
you got identity theft...

New filing by Judge Sullivan in the Flynn case has been brought to my attention.

courtlistener.com/docket/6234142…

h/t: @Imperator_Rex3
I want to draw special attention to THIS footnote in the filing:
Every single 1 of the 'Brady law progeny' the judge refers to - that are explained in the {1} footnote, has to do with the PROSECUTION WITHHOLDING EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE FROM THE DEFENDANT BEFORE A GUILTY PLEA WAS ENTERED.

I have a thing to say about growing up after tragedy. When I was a senior in high school, 7 of my classmates were killed & 24 injured. It was an awful day full of fear, confusion, & pain. Press swarmed. News helicopters hovered overhead all day filming footage of the carnage. 1/
Nothing made sense. Over the days and weeks that followed, we went to vigils, wakes, and funerals. We openly wept in the hallways. People who had never spoken before embraced, clinging to each other. We felt broken. 2/
People said the things that are being said now. “I put him on the bus and sent him to school. He was supposed to be safe.” Classrooms were rearranged so the empty desks weren’t a constant reminder. 3/

1) This is my #Qanon thread for posts by Q from February 12th to the present.

The theme for this series is: "Spread the Message Far and Wide."

Q posts can be found here: qanonmap.github.io
2) We'll begin with this post from #Qanon the night of February 12th.
3) Operation Merlin (tech).
>Iran
>NK
Operation Merlin was a CIA op, ostensibly designed to give Iran a flawed blueprint for a nuclear weapon. Q suggests the real intent was to give Iran (and then North Korea) a functional weapon.

Every time another one of these mass shootings happen - right when the Republicans start telling us that the answer is more guns, guns for everyone, guns for teachers, guns for students - I think about Chris Kyle.
Chris Kyle was the American Sniper guy - a highly decorated Navy Seal sniper with 150 confirmed kills in the Iraq War. Whatever else is true about him, he definitely was very good at shooting guns and used to being in combat environments.
On February 2nd, 2013, Kyle and a friend took a 25 year old Marine veteran to a shooting range, in the hope of helping him with his PTSD. On the way Kyle realized that the guy was dangerous, and texted his friend as such; the friend replied affirmatively

1) @thomaswictor @Imperator_Rex3 @drawandstrike Alright, so, I've had a day to think on it, and I across this piece from New Republic about the Fire and Fury book. newrepublic.com/article/146492… It got me to thinking, wait, so we assume Trump is pretty goddamn smart and cunning, right?
2) Now, this site is Never Trumper Inc, "Wolff’s main claims—that the Trump campaign didn’t expect to win, that they were unprepared to take the reins of power, that Trump himself is unfit for office, and that his advisers are powerless to control him—all track with reality."
3) I mean, good fucking god, all the ways those 'realities' can be disproven. Anyways, the article brings up a good point; this book is basically a liberal's wet dream of an 'inside account' of what the Trump White House is like.
