We should expect to see more talking head recommendations for how to alter the #voting process to address #coronavirus concerns. Voting by mail is going be a part of the solution.

Here's why I don't think it can be the whole solution for the #2020election

THREAD:
States should move to allow more voting by mail independent of recent developments. The @BPC_Bipartisan Task Force on #Elections recommends just that. We support moves by our friends at @voteathome to ensure all Americans have the option to vote by mail

bipartisanpolicy.org/report/logical…
That doesn't mean all states have taken the important steps to update laws and technology to administer an #election with a very high % of #voting by mail, and it's unlikely many can get up to speed before the #2020election. Many state legislatures have already adjourned

News Analysis🔎Last week, #AGBarr issued a memorandum requiring the @FBI “and all other divisions under the department’s purview” to obtain direct permission from #Barr prior to investigating any of the 2020 presidential candidates. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/barrs-doj-sign…
On Feb. 9, Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC said he intends to call witnesses regarding the many problematic issues surrounding the #FISAabuse highlighted in the #IGReport. theepochtimes.com/horowitz-repor…
He then pivoted to the topic of #HunterBiden and #Ukraine: “I think questions about the conflict of interest regarding Hunter Biden in the Ukraine need to be asked. The State Department had warnings and they ignored the conflict of interest.”

yet another hit piece against a certain candidate.
examples:
"In a rant on MSNBC that went viral on Tuesday evening, the longtime Democratic strategist vented his concerns about the party’s prospects for beating Donald Trump, taking particular aim at the party’s leftward lurch."
"We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells.
It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party."
"For fuck’s sake, we’ve got Trump at Davos talking about cutting Medicare and no one in

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

@STUinSD "Listen you idiots, and you shall hear- of the midnight #impeachment by 'Nancy Revere'.
In January, of Twenty-Ought,
Democrats sought impeachment, with evidence- naught.

She said to her cronies: "If the President stays, it'll mean the end of our thieving days."
1)
@STUinSD Grabbing a pen, in the Capital Tower, She and her minions constructed lies by the hour. One phony Article written, they added another- even more vague and ludicrous- but full of more busy bother.

2)
@STUinSD The MSM hacks ready to ride through the land, spreading their sour notes, like a drunk ken, broken band.

To the peoples' good they cared for none, since their own interests and election were priorities two and one.

Some quick facts about @AndrewYang’s Freedom Dividend:

$1000 per month unconditional cash for every American 18+

Would equate to a 24% raise for somebody making $50k/yr

Can completely finance $100k student loan in about 8.5 yrs

Will NOT result in inflation because...
Inflation results from printing new money. Inflation also results from sharp increases in demand and/or sharp decreases in supply. The Freedom Dividend will not do any of these things.

The Freedom Dividend recognizes that we, as humans, have intrinsic value that is separate...
separate from economic value. The person who is homeless and unemployable due to mental illness will still have $1000/month income... money for food/water/clothing and creates an incentive for community leaders to build more shelters for part of that income stream.

It can’t be underestimated the extent to which Trump and the gargoyles who do his bidding (and have their own sadistic ambitions) will use the force of the federal government to terrorize communities, at ever greater intensity as the #2020election approaches
Liberals/the left are always taking silly string to a machine gun fight. Conservatives have been openly talking about how they want to move beyond garden variety #votersuppression to more aggressive intimidation of voters
An unhinged and desperate man has control of the most lethal apparatus in the history of civilization, and esp. if it looks like his chips are down in the Fall, there’s no telling what he will tell his law enforcement ghouls and right wing paramilitaries to do

2/ TX has been trending Democratic for years, and it’s because of the work of organizers & advocates. Because of them, 2020 is a possible tipping point!

We can turn TX blue, but it won’t happen without even more work from even more progressives. #txlege #txsen #2020Election
3/ Up first, those who have filed for U.S. Congress:

💥BREAKING NEWS💥PROOF Trump’s foreign policy decisions are SOLELY focused on winning the #2020Election. After restaurant call, Sondland told Holmes that Trump didn’t give a shit about Ukraine- only Biden, Burisma and server investigation- but Trump also mentioned A$AP on call 🤔
🗳#QuidProQuo: A$AP, a black rapper, was detained in Sweden on assault charges and Trump’s buddies, @kanyewest & @KimKardashian wanted @realDonaldTrump to (Quid) help get charges dropped and released- (Quo)Trump gets credit and gains the black vote🙄nytimes.com/2019/11/08/us/…
🔥At the same time that @realDonaldTrump is trying to extort Zelensky to investigate the Bidens, he’s also trying to sweet talk the Prime Minister of Sweden to do him a solid and release A$AP, ASAP... Keep in mind that Sondland was advising him on this caper too..🔥

8. But think about it. Tulsi is the ONLY Democrat to call out cabal high-priestess Hillary Clinton. Nobody on the payroll of the globalist criminal order would dare. Clinton hit back calling her a "Russian agent" being groomed for a "3rd party run". nbcnews.com/politics/2020-…
9. Furthermore, Tulsi is the ONLY Democrat daring to seek 9/11 truth and recently demanded declassification of documents that reveal the role of Saudi Arabia in the attacks. Remember, any 9/11 disclosure will ultimately expose the Deep State too. newsweek.com/tulsi-gabbard-…
10. When #TheStorm passes, America will find that Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Waters & other senior congressional Democrats are traitors. They'll see Biden charged for corruption, Bernie drop out due to age-related health issues, and lying Warren crushed for boring voters to death.

One more year:
1. Things are coming to a head. The swamp is pursuing their last stand to remove Trump, which we know will fail, Durham is ready to show his hand, and Horowitz is about to drop the #FISAGate hammer. But what will the 2020 election look like after #TheStorm?
2. The Right are sitting pretty. They have Trump. But what about the honest Left? It would be naive to think that these citizens will just switch to Trump after heads roll and the present Democrat swamp is exposed in their treason. They will need a place to go. But WHERE?
3. If patriots really are in control, by now we would see a plan for the well-intentioned Left who deserve life, liberty, happiness and a say in the direction of the country. Their only crime is being deceived by decades of programming by the #FakeNews.

Another great #FakeNews manipulation/falsehood, this time with respect to #impeachment, is that @realDonaldTrump was coercing the Ukrainian president to "investigate his political opponents" in an attempt to solicit "meddling" from a foreign power in the #2020Election.
@RudyGiuliani's investigation into Ukraine (which subsequently led to Burisma and Joe Biden) began long before Biden announced his candidacy on April 25, 2019. Prior to this date Biden cannot reasonably be considered 'protected' from any Ukraine probe due to his candidate status.
@RudyGiuliani began looking into Ukraine as early as Jan 2019 when he interviewed both former general prosecutor Viktor Shokin, and two days later his successor Yuriy Lutsenko. Notes from the interviews were published in Ukrainian newspapers (translated): tinyurl.com/y44v6np8

BREAKING: Officials in #Jonesboro County, Georgia are seeking to move the city's sole polling site from a museum to the Jonesboro Police Dept.

This is clear #VoterSuppression. Along w/ our partners, we are resisting this move which would have a chilling effect on the Black vote.
@LawyersComm @866OURVOTE @Georgia_NAACP @gapeoplesagenda @NewGAProject @markniesse The Jonesboro Police Department has a long history of tensions with the Black community. In 2018, Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen resigned following complaints by #BLM activists about the treatment of a Black teen held in police custody. 11alive.com/article/news/l…
@LawyersComm @866OURVOTE @Georgia_NAACP @gapeoplesagenda @NewGAProject @markniesse Prior to his resignation, Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen exacerbated tensions with the community by vowing to aggressively enforce the city's "sagging pants” law - a tool used to racially profile PoC.

I'm going to try and continue to do policy analysis threads for the #2020Election! To that end here is a thread on Maternal mortality #maternalhealthjustice #2020Policy
The US has the highest maternal mortality rate in the industrialized world. Bet 700 & 900 women die from pregnancy/childbirth related causes every year. 3/5 pregnancy-related deaths are preventable (CDC). Black & Indigenous women are 3-4x more likely to die than white women
.@KamalaHarris has been the leader on maternal mortality. More than including it in her 2020 platform Harris introduced the Maternal Care Access (CARE) bill in 2018 (requiring implicit bias training) w/ @SenGillibrand & again in 2019 @nataliereports /1 refinery29.com/en-us/2018/08/…

Okay, almost 100 votes in and the majority of you voted incorrectly, unintentional or not. Please re-evaluate your choices and vote with an alternate account. This is still anybody’s poll and I’d really like to prove once and for all that we Democrat’s are the real winners!!!!

News Analysis 🔎 The dangers facing @SpeakerPelosi and her party are the multiple “what ifs” that could make efforts to #ImpeachTrump the worst thing that can happen for the Democrats.

We decided to examine many of those "what ifs." (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/assessing-the-…
@SpeakerPelosi What if 🔎 @SpeakerPelosi’s Democrats are mistaken in gambling that, after they #ImpeachTrump, the majority Americans will reward them with full control of both chambers of Congress and the White House in the #2020Election?
The problem for everybody involved in a #TrumpImpeachment is nobody can know with assurance what effect it will have electorally because there are so many more “what ifs” that could, to a greater or lesser degree, shape the final outcome in 2020.

As @EdwardGLuce explained in @FinancialTimes, President Trump has sent every signal that, left to his devices, he’ll try to misuse his power to interfere with the upcoming election. 1/8 on.ft.com/2mdZMKp

⚠️Threaten to “jail” political opponents
Trump has repeatedly used the #ElectionManipulation tactic of threatening political opponents with prosecution. During the 2016 election, he called for Hillary Clinton to be jailed. 3/8

Thread: Today, @readfrontier published a story about a Tulsa "church" that has no congregation and no house of worship, but was used to allow the org's president/pastor to avoid thousands of $ in property taxes, & to work with and #Oklahoma political action committee...
The "church," Gateway Ministries, once had a congregation in Ada, from 2000 to 2014, when the church's president/pastor Jesse Leon Rodgers dissolved the congregation and moved to Tulsa five years ago. The church's equipment was sold by Rodgers at a yard sale...
...and the church, controlled by Rodgers, purchased a 4,200 sq. ft. house in Tulsa. Rodgers is the state head of @FRCdc's Watchmen on the Wall ministry, which is a nationwide network of pastors.

1/ Just got off the phone with Mark Sanford, who is in Washington this morning (I could hear the Metro in the background), where he is making media rounds post-announcement. Some highlights from our phone call...
#scpol #2020Election #scnews #chsnews #politics
2/ Sanford hopes to begin hiring campaign staff this week. Declaring today was a key part of making sure he can recruit/attract the political talent he needs to run this campaign. #scpol #2020Election #scnews #chsnews #politics
3/ Speaking of running the campaign, this one is unlike any he has done before. Usually very very planned, this campaign is much more incremental (step by step, week by week, month by month.) "That’s the complete opposite of every campaign I've ever run in my life!" #scpol
