1. The time has come to revisit the idea of opening the border. The time has come because the US is tear-gassing and pepper-spraying immigrant mothers and children in Tijuana, Mexico.
2. The time has come, because the president keeps saying that he wants immigrants admitted legally while his admin slows down applications for asylum while the number seeking asylum, which is legal, continues to swell, forcing desperate people to act desperately.
3. It’s a moral abomination.

It’s time for liberals to take a moral stand.

On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

📸 @TheAlexArbuckle
On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

On January 31, 2017—just 10 days after the March—we went back to DC to voice our outrage of the nomination of Jeff Sessions. We continued our call to #StopSessions for over one year after that.

(1) Thread #4: Mass illegal immigration attempts on the US Southern border.

Caravans through Mexico will always be with us, certainly long after 2018 midterms. The current ones are different... the strongest response is needed.

Directory of threads:
(2) The strong response being formed now will reduce size/frequency of future caravan attempts. The eventual #EndCatchAndRelease, #FinishTheWall & other actions by the incoming congress will allow the military deployments to end.

#VoteGOP has never been more necessary.
(3) Essential reading about the caravans:

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.

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.

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.

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."
