THREAD: Emotions are still running high for many of us as we come to terms with the suspension of Bernie’s campaign. To process this moment with you, I'd like to share something personal. It’s the story of a special first-time voter, my little brother Mohammed. / 1
He’s the reason I've been working tirelessly the past year as a volunteer to mobilize Muslims as a unified bloc for the Senator. I like to think the baraka of his vote played a special role in helping us win California. /2
Mohammed is disabled w/ Cerebral Palsy. Unable to walk, talk, or do much else for himself at age 31, he represents one of the most vulnerable and overlooked populations in the country—and the world. It was in solidarity with his community that we voted in Cali on Super Tuesday./3

I've supported @BernieSanders for pres since '15. He always seems to get what people want; honesty, fighting for workers & healthcare, consistency, & he keeps it policy based when debating Dems. He's a genuinely good person who actually cares.
But seeing how many in the establishment, the interviewers, politicians, and 'celebrities' who direct or influence public discourse through media, speaking out so harshly towards him makes me support him even more.
You see, I was bullied. I know personally what it's like to have the entire school and (some) teachers against you.
I know what it's like to have an incorrect narrative about me spread around and attempts to 'correct the record' are ignored.

"The question & objection I keep hearing raised is this one: Why now? Why come in at the 11th hour when Joe Biden is on the verge of clinching the Democratic nomination?

The question of course is meant to undermine the claim and cast it as politically motivated...
...The more Red Scare conspiracy minded have taken that even one step further, going full Russian agent on Terra based on a Russia friendly blog post that she wrote as if her views on Russia remotely relate to Joe Biden's actions on that day in the 90s as if it's not far more...
...preposterous to imagine that Tara Reade is some Kremlin agent than that a powerful man committed an egregious Act.

But the story of "Why now?" is actually incredibly telling. It says everything about how our elite institutions routinely cover four powerful men...

@OCPSnews Why are you making #Teachers come into school next week to go digital when we have been told by @RonDeSantisFL to stay home and all schools are closed?? #MyTeacherWife is afraid of getting #COVID19 from one of her co-workers and then giving it to me and/or her 1/1
elderly parents who we are taking care of during the #CoronavirusPandemic by bringing them food and supplies so they do not have to leave their homes and get sick. You are endangering my wife, her parents, myself, her co-workers and their families!! You should be ashamed to 2/2
even think this is a good idea. If you truly cared about your #Teachers and their families you would not make them do this at all. If you want to go digital I heard there is this new digital tool called E-MAIL where people exchange information and communicate with each other 3/3

Ok I need the trusted news sources I lean on to tell me how real this is:
A website that has up-to-date extensive data indicating Dem #electionfraud based on actual vote total differentials to exit polls in almost every state WAY outside accepted range
It indicates the potential for vote flipping, plus is always in Biden’s favor and shows a lower percentage for Bernie - almost across the board. There is no state in which it works in Bernie’s favor (ie Bernie outperformed the exit poll by the acceptable range.
MI - where Biden won, but not by nearly as big a margin. If you believe the Buzzfeed “glitch” was really a glitch.…

Regretfully, Joe Biden's healthcare plan discriminates against those too poor to pay. It leaves 10 million Americans behind, & will result in 125k unnecessary deaths over 10 years.

Either healthcare is a human right, or it isn't.

It's great that everyone is coming together around this crisis. But people are in crisis everyday. 500 mil Americans go bankrupt from medical debt every year. 68 mil are un or underinsured. We've been in a state of emergency. We need a president who acts like it. #Bernie2020

Deflating morale after scoring a win is a tactic to win more in the future, and we must rise above that.

Coaches and generals know you can lose a battle, but win a war, be losing at halftime, but win the game.

And this happens in politics too. Clinton was winning early in 2008 but did Obama buy into losing or did he claim underdog momentum?

Trump (a sad example) was heavily down in polling to Clinton in 2016 but he quit or did he push forward?

So yes we’re down but it’s not over. Yes we’d prefer to be doing better at this point but frankly it’s amazing that Sanders is doing this well.

We decide where we go from here.

Individually we decide our own level of action.

This is a gut check for us.

#CAPrimary: One of the disasters this year is caused by the fact that LA and other counties cut polling stations by 90%. #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary2020 #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #BernieSanders #Bernie2020
They were replaced by so-called “voting centers “ which anyone would know were deeply insufficient and unprepared — especially as #Bernie got out the word that you had to bring in your NPP ballot to exchange it for a Crossover Democratic ballot. #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020
There's zero question about who was hurt: Regular Democrats tend to mail in their ballots. But most NPP independent voters, who widely favor #Bernie, could not mail in their ballots because they had to do the exchange.… #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020

I am publicly endorsing Bernie Sanders for President of the United States. To help me explain why I think Sanders will be best for all Americans I want to point you to the differences between him and Biden. The most enlightening things appear between 1/?
@BernieSanders and @JoeBiden when you consider who each of them attracts and who each of them alienates.

Sanders attracts people who like his vision of a future America. He attracts people who want to take on the responsibility of enacting the kind of change that they 2/?
want to see in the world. He attracts people across all forms of oppression. Women, POC, LGBT like myself, immigrants, First Nations, and the entire working class. He attracts them because they feel like economic justice is the first step to true justice in our increasingly 3/?

Those of you contemplating voting for Elizabeth Warren, please read this.

In 2015, I was living in Massachusetts & Warren was my senator. The military intervention began in Yemen, my country of birth, & was wreaking havoc on civilians. But this wasn't just Saudi's war.
President Obama had bypassed Congress – an unconstitutional act – to support the Saudis in their war against #Yemen. He was providing weapons, mid-air refueling, training, target support, and anything else the Saudi-UAE coalition needed to bomb and starve Yemen.
Within months, @PMaurerICRC noted, "Yemen after 5 months looks like Syria after 5 years." Yet, media outlets were barely covering the conflict, & when they did, they inaccurately presented it as a Saudi-Iran proxy war. The US' role was often ignored.…

People who think that @BernieSanders gets us closer to @AndrewYang's vision for America don't actually understand Yang's vision for America: A Thread

#YangGang #EndorseUBI
#Bernie2020 #NotMeUs

First of all, #Yang wants a unified America. One where there isn't a huge political divide and so much hate and conflict. He doesn't alienate anyone.

#Bernie is incredibly divisive and angry and will only cause tensions to rise if given the nomination or the presidency.

The #FederalJobsGuarantee goes against Yang's vision because #Yang wants to redefine work in an age where jobs are being automated away and where work that has intrinsic human value isn't being recognized by the market.

There is a reason why Putin prefers aiming his propaganda machine at Bernie Sanders versus Joe Biden. And it is the amount of effort required 2 change the narrative 2 one that is most harmful to the candidates chances. #bernie2020 #Biden2020 #disinfo #osint #psyops #SCprimary2020 Image
For Joe Biden the goal of Putin is to change the current narrative that Joe is an honest and working guy politician to that of a corrupt out of touch politician. Whereas the narrative shift for Bernie Sanders is to frame him as a radical socialist. #bernie2020 #Biden2020 #disinfo
Since Bernie Sanders already calls himself a Democratic Socialist & alot of his supporters proudly claim that mantle the natural resistance to creating this narrative shift in our opinion is already much lower & easier to accomplish than the narrative shift required with Biden

The mystery thickens. I looked at the most commonly donated denominations to Bernie's 2016 campaign & found MORE oddballs.

Anyway, it appears that there are more bizarre monthly donations that appear during other times of the month.
Just like how the $14.03's show up monthly at the end of the month, we've got others. Here are all of the others with at least 900 individual donations.
These show up during the 14th & 15th

Count: 2682

As #BlackHistoryMonth ends and the #SouthCarolinaPrimary begins, let's revisit the story of Medicare & how it tangibly advanced racial equity in the 1960s.

The story shows the power of movement-aligned politics to effect social & system change.
Before Medicare, hospitals were deeply segregated due to Jim Crow. Many outright refused care to Black people. If care was provided, it was heavily segregated with separate entrances, waiting rooms, wards, even separate china & silverware. Separate, and certainly not equal.
Care was triaged by skin tone, not severity of condition. If you were Black with a serious illness, you would be lucky to find a hospital or clinic that allowed you to wait until all the White patients had been seen before you would receive medical attention.

Did Bernie have direct communication with Russia in 2015?

I believe he did.
In 2016 at a "hacker conference", Guccifer 2.0 aka Russia operatives bragged about hacking the DNC.

But they also bragged about something else: that time Bernie's campaign illegally accessed Hillary's voter data.…
Guccifer 2.0 states that Bernie's Director of Data, Josh Uretsky (the one who took the fall & was the only person fired for this incident) was searching for Hillary's data on the NGPVAN server "as it was agreed".

#Bernie2020 is literally insane & anyone that goes along w/ it's also insane!

Now Bernie wants "free" (paid 4 by middle class TAX INCREASES) child care for EVERYONE, "free" PRE-Kindergarten for EVERYONE, & also 6 MONTHS....

6 MONTHS of paid family leave, sick time & vacation.
So in other words, #Bernie2020 wants to bankrupt EVERYONE and put every business out of business. GTFO!

Can you imagine if every business had to pay everyone for being out of work for 6 MONTHS?
But, this is how he brainwashes people into supporting him....let’s just hope there aren’t THAT many insane people.
