@GrouchoG @Ethical_Ethyl @JustInformU @JohnBrennan @realDonaldTrump 1st one has to wonder why t/FBI/Mueller NEVER was able to even look at the DNC server. 2)Podesta emails reveals that he said they would 'take care' of the leaker.(When they thought it was Guccifer) Seth died 2 weeks later. Seth Rich worked 4 DNC 2 make sure voters could access
@GrouchoG @Ethical_Ethyl @JustInformU @JohnBrennan @realDonaldTrump the voting places that Bernie and Hillary shut down, also removing the voting machines and putting up cancelled signs outside on voting PRIMARY day. Seth new something was going on to rig primary so he took a flash drive and downloaded 411 that had to do WITH OUR #BernieOrBust
@GrouchoG @Ethical_Ethyl @JustInformU @JohnBrennan @realDonaldTrump findings. The leak proved EVERYTHING we had seen of the DNC 's stopping our candidate Bernie, which Bernie was in on whole heartedly. This is the facts and that is why HRC/DNC could not allow FBI access to t/servers. They HAD TO BLAME IT ON RUSSIA- & It would not mattered if it

I don't get the Liz Warren hate on the Left. I mean, other than her imperialist foreign policy, unflinching support for Israel, pledge to take 'dark money' in the general, rejection of M4A, and flourishing relationships with corporatists like the Clintons, I think she's awesome
Okay fine, she also passed as Native to get a job and had no problem with Harvard Law calling her their first woman of color hire. Other than that, she's awesome
Oh wait, she didn't endorse Bernie in 2016 either. That was kinda awkward. Other than that though, she's pretty awesome

I'm thinking about my time in 2016 when I was #BernieOrBust, vs. my time this past year in the #YangGang: Two distinct and similar political experiences, both of which taught me a lot about myself and how media influences elections.

#MyBernieStory meets #MyYangStory [Thread]

Before 2015, I wasn't really politically engaged. I understood that the system was corrupt and unfair and considered myself a social libertarian, but still bought into the idea that Democrats were the "good" team that could usually be trusted (mostly for social rights reasons.)

Bernie exposed me to some eye-opening statistics about the hardships experienced by American workers, and I became obsessed. I spent hours in Bernie meme groups on FB, checking polls on RCP, and watching CNN constantly. First time donating, first merch, first political rally.

Thread: I've been holding back on @AndrewYang a little bit, but now I think it's time to push back much harder on him. Honestly, I think some people underestimate how dangerous a Yang presidency would be. 1K monthly is not enough to live. The cost of living continues to rise.
@AndrewYang This is especially true, if his UBI plan is implemented without a rent cap (which @BernieSanders supports. Landlords will hike the rent as soon as it passes. I'm someone who cannot afford to give up disability/food stamps for 1k a month. It would crush me, first of all.
@AndrewYang @BernieSanders Also, 1K a month puts us at the mercy of the wealthy. if it's taken us 30 years to raise the minimum wage how long will it take to raise that 1k a month? The cost of living cannot be stressed enough. If it cuts into disability and food stamps people like me are done for.

He was retweeting a Shaun King article title about how he didn't think he could vote for Hillary.

Shaun's a Bernie surrogate again, isn't he?

For those who don’t understand why I’ve been picking on the #BernieOrBust crowd recently, this is why. We must stave off a repeat of 2016, and the messaging I’m seeing from at least one large FB group is very concerning, as is the situation in Italy & w/ the yellow vests... 1/
...where the extreme left and the extreme right have joined forces. 2/
It is impossible to stop something that no one knows about. Again, my concern is with the Bernie-or-bust crowd such as the Real Progressives (on FB & Twitter), not Bernie supporters generally. TY. 3/

“In 1909 we lost everything.”
According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the 1910 Jekyll Island meeting resulted in draft legislation for the creation of a U.S. central bank.
Parts of this draft (the Aldrich plan) were incorporated into the 1913 Federal Reserve Act.

The American voting system is busted. Shattered. They’re trying to take away your vote by saying you’re not a citizen, by saying you voted in another state, by giving you provisional ballots for some cockamamie reason, by purging you from the voter rolls vimeo.com/269063461
These obstacles are put in the way of mostly voters of color — that’s the real issue. We have an apartheid election system in the US. And I’m very concerned that some groups and politicians talk about #VoteSuppression but avoid the issue of race. facebook.com/notes/greg-pal…
Q: Do you think that's out of fear, obliviousness, or something more sinister?

A: The Democratic Party was the party of #JimCrow. It’s in its DNA. If everyone got to vote, the party’s elite would be out on its ass — right, Bernie?

Spam bots did a lot of work in the #Election2016 .
#Twitter should do something about them before the #elections2018.
This is just a small chunk of the bots in the @SocialFeedMgr 2016 election data set.

1/ Ok.. so I am gonna talk about the deleterious effect that @twitter promulgates by #shadowbanning certain voices
2/ Fair warning I am going to @ a number of accounts.. if you are one of these and wish no notifications going forward: just mute the conversation. support.twitter.com/articles/20175…
3/ In June /July 2016 I predicted, via twitter that @realdonaldtrump would win by roughly the margin of ECV (electoral college votes) that he actually won by (I was a state or so out)
