THREAD: I’ve put together a mini Midterms version of the Trump Fundraging analysis, focused mainly on the last few days before Election Day (Oct 29-Nov 6). Please RT!

#Trump #TrumpEmails #Midterms #2018Midterms #2018MidtermElections
From October 29th through November 6th, I got 27 total emails. That’s exactly 3/per day, WAY above the 0.896/day average throughout all of 2018.

I chose Oct 29th for this thread because that’s when they really started picking up.
“Donald J. Trump” dominated the From field most of Oct. In the week before the midterms, they switched to a big mix of surrogates: Donald Trump Jr. (1st email of 2018), Eric Trump (8th), Melania Trump (5th), Lara Trump (23rd), Newt Gingrich (12th), & Brad Parscale (12th).

There’s so much voter suppression going on that some areas are seeing record turnout for a midterm election 🤷🏻‍♂️ #2018Midterms #ElectionDay2018

They had Fox on (closed caption but still 🤮) at the nail salon when I went yesterday for my pre-Election Day mani/pedi and since I endured the lunacy I figure I might as well share what I saw with y’all...
It was Chris Wallace’s show and the guests were Karl Rove, Juan Williams and a blonde whose name I didn’t catch. Topic of discussion was whether or not the GOP was making a mistake by making immigration their closing argument rather than the economy.
Of course Karl Rove was decidedly in the tank for unbridled xenophobia, but the blonde and Juan Williams were pretty certain that the Caravan is needless red meat that will certainly fire up the base but alienate Independents and GOP moderates (if they still exist).

I will no longer call myself
“A Liberal Marine.”

My ideals are not “liberal.” Today’s rightwing defines them that way.
And I won’t let them define me.

My ideals are not “progressive”, or “liberal”—they’re American.

And that’s what I am.
~ An American Marine
#SaveDemocracy
“Give me your tired, your poor...” are not “liberal ideas”—and it’s not the “Statue Of Liberalism.”

Wanting to be a beacon of hope and liberty, for the world’s “tempest-tost ”, should never be labeled with scorn, or attacked, by any American.
#14thAmendment
We are a #NationOfImmigrants.
We are the inheritors of the society our founders created.

The Constitution and “The New Colossus” are their “last will and testament.”

And as stewards of their creation, we’re duty-bound to protect their dream.

I never thought I’d say this, but I agree with @Scaramucci.
He makes a great point, with a rare insight into why #Trump is able to lie and maintain support.
Watch what he says on the panel of @RealTimers.
Though he could’ve phrased it better, it’s an insight we all need to hear.
I’m going to distill what #Scaramucci is saying, but add a little more detail.

Basically, it comes down to the Republicans overwhelming desire to “own the libs.”

But why?

They’ve won and they’re in power. You’d expect them to seek legitimacy in power.
But they don’t.
#Cult45
The reason is— that #Trump’s base is comprised of bullies.

It’s not enough that they’ve won, or like a bully in school, that they have power.
They derive pleasure and an affirmation of power, by taunting others, and getting a response.

Ignore the polls and get out there and #Vote on November 6th. Relying on polling is a relic of a time gone by.
I’m not saying looking at @FiveThirtyEight’s model and charts and stuff isn’t cool, because it is and provides some insight. But no matter what the numbers say, it’s most certainly NEVER an excuse to not #Vote because you feel your peeps are a “lock”
Need nothing further than to point to 2016. Which by the way, @FiveThirtyEight didn’t really have wrong, but the “selected not elected” mindset existed before 2016. Why else would over 100 million people choose NOT to participate in their civic duty to choose their leaders.

The President said release the Carter Page FISA and the Text Messages of Comey, Page, Strzok, McCabe, And Ohr to the PUBLIC!!

Any member of Congress or Senate on either side of the political aisle not okay with that, is a traitor to the Republic.

Are you fed up yet America?
This is why I only trust Trump and no one else! The evidence of corruption on both sides is overwhelmingly obvious..
If you don’t trust Trump by now you never will. There is no place in this movement for Never Trumpers like Joe Walsh, Trish Regan, Ben Shapiro and others.

They are bought and paid for opposition period!

A friend asked me how I knew this in 2016, during the campaign, before the election, how did I know to raise red flags about #TrumpRussia #TrumpLies #TrumpCrimeSyndicate #PenceKnew #Manafort 1/
She went on: you’re busy, you’re just a normal civilian person, you run a small business, you’re focused on working, your family, how did you figure out and know what was wrong with Trump, Russia, the GOP, why the election was different? 2/
First, let’s acknowledge lots of people knew, too. I don’t just mean the intelligence community, or the co-conspirators and accomplices to treason and illegal activities, I mean lots of other regular people like me. There are some common qualities and habits we share 3/

Democrats are really bad at this game.
We run from one catastrophe to the next with our hair on fire, and our rhetoric becomes increasingly desperate in the process. We fail to understand regional politics and how our rhetoric is used against us in purple districts.
#AbolishICE
There are plenty of things about #ICE that need to be changed. But the only way to change that is by being in power. How can we not see that the idea to #AbolishICE can be used as a broad message of @TheDemocrats being anit-law enforcement and for #OpenBorders???
Just today, I was listening to the @MSignorile show, and he promoted #AbolishICE as a good slogan for Dems to run on. I would ask Mr Signorile to look at the political calculus for #RedState Dems who'll be forced to defend that rhetoric and oppose #Trump's #SCOTUS pick

I’m starting to see firsthand, how Russia used support for Bernie Sanders to divide us.
I supported Sanders, and many accounts which I still follow are starting to come into focus.
I’m compiling a list of those accounts that have a clear goal of dividing us.
#2018Midterms
One obvious sign is when an account is critical of US foreign policy, which deserves criticism, but defends Russia.
Search the term “Russiaphobia”, and you’ll find plenty of accounts to keep an eye on.
#Russia2018 #Putin
Right now, it appears as though there’s a major PR push for Finland—which has me very concerned.
Many pro-Russia accounts are trying to create a narrative of Finnish people being in favor of Russia.
In the past, such campaigns are a prequel to a hostile military action.

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10 nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications
