Given that communities across the country have been successfully pressuring counties to end ties with ICE, here’s a quick 5-step guide we and @CCIRAlliance created to follow up with those detained—many of which will simply be transferred to private detention centers. #AbolishICE

#NewYork Republican club vandalized hours before leader of Proud Boys, who marched in Charlottesville, and who argued in the white nationalist publication 'American Renaissance' that blacks are "incompatible" with whites, was set to speak. itsgoingdown.org/new-york-repub…
Sometime last night, the Metropolitan Republican Club windows were smashed, anarchist "circle A's" written on the door, locks glued, and the following communique was left. Denounced both parities, recent attacks on migrant workers, and creeping Alt-Right influence in the GOP.
McInness' been tied to white nationalism for a decade. He has written for V-DARE + American Renaissance and got his job at Taki's Magazine from Richard Spencer. He wrote: "I love being white...[C]lose the borders now...assimilate to a Western, white, English-speaking...life."

🌩️ In this (free!) @curaffairs podcast, @rohangrey & I chat with @PeteDDavis about the need for the Left to abandon the “tax & transfer” approach. At ~29:20, I joked that we need to switch to “create & destroy.” We all laughed. It's intense. But I meant it.patreon.com/posts/21854029
I don’t think “tax and transfer” is a liberating lens on most any level. Whether or not you agree with MMT, acting like “money grows on rich people” and we must depend on their funds to offset the spending for a better world is a very restrictive approach to political economy.
When leftists refer to “taxpayer money”-- as opposed to say, “public money” -- we prolong the illusion we all depend on certain people’s economic contributions and not others. It’s atomizing.

This would appear to be an FBI document showing the co-founder of Amnesty International ratting Black Panther leader Fred Hampton out to the FBI. 🤔 #FOIA

Oh he's a winner....

"He also helped free Hungarian Cardinal József Mindszenty, American expatriate poet Ezra Pound, former Congo President Moise Tshombe and represented the Dalai Lama and Tibet."
My lord. This Kutner a bad guy.

Moïse Tshombe, whom Kutner helped "free", was the leader of the Katanga secessionist state set up by the Belgians and the UK in order to break up the Congo during the premiership of Patrice Lumumba.

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today announced that the Committee will hold a public hearing with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
“As I said earlier, anyone who comes forward as Dr. Ford has done deserves to be heard. My staff has reached out to Dr. Ford to hear her account, and they held a follow-up call with Judge Kavanaugh this afternoon.

***Reminds me of #AbolishICE (I love you @ICEgov )***

Thread on the second Ezra Klein tweet in recent days that, I believe, frames an important problem badly, and dangerously so. (The first was on Trump's view of history.) This one manages to be bad in multiple ways. 1/
First, he elevates business (Silicon Valley) at the expense of politics (DC), invoking a false dichotomy. As @margaretomara and many other historians have shown, Silicon Valley would not exist were it not for the federal government. 2/
Second, by invoking "DC" and its inability to solve problems, Klein is sowing further doubt about the possibility of government to do good. Like the first misconception (that business and the state are totally separate entities), this diminishes the realm of politics. 3/

I dedicate this particular thread to Chuck Schumer, professional Wall Street and AIPAC puppet, and coward in the face of the worst Republican administration since George W. Bush. There is a good reason for that which I will get to momentarily.
There seems to be a pattern with Mr. Schumer in that he doesn't do anything to make sure the Democrats actually oppose Donald Trump like they should at every turn. Take fast tracking 15 lifetime appointment conservative judges so Democrats can go home. huffingtonpost.com/entry/senate-d…
It could have something to do with how Donald Trump used to donate to Chuck Schumer all the time, along with Trump's family, even holding campaign fundraisers for him at Mar A Lago. opensecrets.org/news/2017/09/t…

(1/8) One thing that happens when an account is #QFDbanned is that tweets from that account will typically NOT show up in a (Twitter default mode) search of certain keywords/hashtags.
(2/8) One can get a general idea about whose voices Twitter is suppressing (via #QFDban) by comparing search results of a hashtag unlikely to be used by one side of political debate. Compare results of search in default mode w/ results of search when "quality filter" turned OFF.
(3/8) For example, here are results of search I did of tweets posted 7/27/18

#EndTheWitchHunt
Default mode ==> 13 tweets
Quality filter OFF ==> 69 tweets

Twitter suppressed (by hiding them behind “quality filter”) tweets posted by people who tweeted #EndTheWitchHunt 7/27/18.

This isn’t just a child that doesn’t recognize his mom, this is a trauma response following an attachment injury caused by the US government. As a psychotherapist that works with children I can’t tell you how heartbreaking this clip is to watch.
Attachment is foundational and the building block for how we relate to our world. It is a survival strategy developed in response to our caregivers to get our needs met. A secure attachment creates resilience, leads us to form healthy relationships & general well-being
In order to survive the separation with his caregiver, this child learned during his time institutionalized that to get his needs met for comfort, food, etc. he likely had little to no impact on his rotating and inconsistent staff of “caregivers”.

Hey you insane deranged Open Borders Progressives: yoo hoo!

Pay attention to what I'm about to say to you.

IOWA IS NOT CALIFORNIA. You *can't* count on Democrat/Progressives to get this guy off & minimize the fallout from this.
Progressives are right now struggling to defend the usual weekly bloodbath in Chicago by screaming about the NRA. It's not working any more.

And now this.

This was the LAST thing you needed.
BUT YOU MADE YOUR CHOICES AFTER KATE STEINLE and Trump's election.

You *chose* to go 'all in' in Open Borders Lunacy and Sanctuary Cities & undermining the immigration laws passed by our elected representatives.

Now you will reap what you've sown.

When in THE HELL are we going to FIX our unacceptably broken immigration system?

And fuck you, #AbolishICE

Thread: Take a look at the ICE news release section of their website and see how they spin things to fit their agenda. ice.gov/news/all
This one is about an ICE officer that raped women while on the job then told them that the police won't help them because he was a federal officer. Headline says arrested on "federal civil rights charges" that "allege" he sexually assaulted 2 women. ice.gov/news/releases/…
That's a strange way to say rape. Also uses "alleges" to cast doubt on the story. It even includes this important note "An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty."

Because of #CatchAndRelease a sexual predator was let go because of #KeepFamiliesTogether they could not separate him from the 13yr old he claimed as his daughter and because of #SanctuaryState CA he won’t be deported for raping her. This is the #OpenBorders legacy #BuildTheWall
Congratulations @TheDemocrats you enabled a thirteen year old girl to be brutally raped and abused but don’t worry, he’s safe in California and will be released into our communities because #AbolishIce right? You are all sick.
Cover your ears liberals, @ChuckGrassley AND @SenFeinstein have requested an investigation into abuse at detention centers that went IGNORED during the Obama admin😱Including detaining children in handcuffs where was everyone? The complaints started in 2014 #KeepFamiliesTogether

I’m out in DC this afternoon. #AllOutDC #DefendDC
DC ain’t Charlottesville. I had a cop come up to me on the subway saying he liked my sign.
The tourists are broadly sympathetic, too, and the #MAGA hatters look distinctly uncomfortable.

I have a new piece @BostonReview on how the left needs to take global trade seriously, avoiding nationalism and protectionism and embracing global solutions that we can also implement at the national level. I'm going to tweet some points and solutions.

bostonreview.net/class-inequali…
First, the global trade system is disastrous for the world's workers, both in the U.S. and overseas. The reason is that capital mobility and international legal regimes and disconnected companies from any responsibility to anywhere or anything but shareholders.
Like the late 19th century, recent changes in capitalism have slapped us in the face and we don't really know how to respond. One of those changes is extreme capital mobility wrapped up in neoliberal trade agreements. How do we respond on the left?

I think what separates normal Trump opponents on the right from those who have become deluded, and what prevents those critics from backing moderate Dems, is the inability to recognize that the left has just as many crazy ass elements as the right does
It’s one thing to oppose Trump because he’s an insane, unconservative manchild. It’s another to pretend that his opponents on the left are sane and will save the republic in office. I’m not going to pretend Kamala Harris is great or #AbolishICE is normal or socialism is okay.
Now if you want to advocate for a particular Democrat as an acceptable alternative, fine. I’m with you. If you want to make a case for, say, a Biden who is a known element with more moderate and established governance, I’m all ears. But just pretending “the left” is better, no.

The Power of ‘Abolish ICE’ nytimes.com/2018/08/04/opi… Democrats are shifting left on immigration, and it shows at the polls.
Some folks want to ameliorate ICE rather than abolish it. But I am in the latter camp because ICE has become an entity powered by hatred that functions without accountability to abuse immigrants of color. It is now a monument to institutionalized racism. nytimes.com/2018/08/04/opi…
The idea that the call to #AbolishICE will hurt Democrats is not supported by data. In fact, the opposite is true. Democrats should leverage this moment to redefine the immigration landscape so it is textured by ethics & vision worthy of our party's values nytimes.com/2018/08/04/opi…
