THREAD: the media is going crazy and telling you that there was a big #BlueWave in Louisiana and Kentucky. That couldn’t be further from the truth. All it takes is studying a little history..1...
....2....Let’s start with KY. History has shown that Kentucky is not a fan of GOP governors. There have only been four since statehood and 3 since World War II. Bevin is the most recent. None were re-elected to a second term. KY is red because Dems voted for Trump there.
...3....@POTUS won KY by 30 points. Moderate Dems there voted for him. Bevin was also extremely unpopular. The Trump Effect has clearly been seen in KY when Daniel Cameron was elected attorney general, becoming the first GOP AG in 70 years.....

We decided to pair the subjective assessment with an attempt at an objective assessment. We began by downloading tweets containing various phrases likely to be associated with violence against one’s fellow citizens.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote After removing some off-topic search terms, we wound up with 483647 tweets containing “my guns”, “our guns”, “take guns”, “civil war”, or “guillotine(s)” from 285593 accounts between 9/15 and 10/24. How are the accounts posting them distributed in terms of political stance?
@ZellaQuixote We classified the 200 most frequently seen hashtags in the profiles of the accounts tweeting possible violent rhetoric into three categories: #maga (red), #resist/#bluewave (blue), and “other” (green.) Overall, they lean strongly right - 52.3% #maga vs 29.9% #resist/#bluewave.

We’ve accumulated a decent-sized library of tweet datasets over the last three years, and decided to use them to take a first stab at training a classifier to identify different categories of Twitter activity.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote For the first round of this experiment, we chose three categories into which to classify accounts and manually selected ~200 of our existing datasets belonging to said categories as training/test data.

The 3 categories:
- #Resist/#BlueWave
- spambots
@ZellaQuixote Next, we selected 24 features with which to score the tweet datasets. Examples of metrics used for scoring:

- repetition of content
- how many times retweeted
- hashtag usage
- sites linked
- trains/lists/followback tweets
- percentage of non-original tweets
- apps used

Sometimes one doesn't have to look very far to find a suspicious Twitter account, because the suspicious account in question (specifically, @lilmurrayne) conveniently joins the ranks of one's own followers.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@lilmurrayne @ZellaQuixote Based on its most recent followers, many of which have a blue wave emoji or #resist or the like in their profiles, one might think that @lilmurrayne is a liberal Twitter account. If we scroll back 1380 followers, however, the accounts are suddenly all in Japanese.
@lilmurrayne @ZellaQuixote The situation gets even more complicated the further back we go. @lilmurrayne's first few hundred followers are Arabic-language accounts, followed by several thousand in English, then alternating English and Arabic sets, then Japanese, then most recently #BlueWave accounts.

The only thing keeping us from a full blown #TrumpRecession is your consumption. The consumer is strong while all else fails. If you limit your spending until #Election2020 you're helping to get #Trump out of office. RETWEET

#Resistance #DeutscheBankLoans #ResistersUnite #resist
Tariffs have increased prices on large appliances and other big purchases. It's in your best (#resister) interest to hold off on any big purchase until after the election. You'll ensure Trump can't boast about the economy, and you'll save money after #Dems are back in power.
You may think interest rates are low, so it's a good time to spend, however as the #TrumpRecession gathers steam the fed will need to lower rates. New #Dem prez will reduce tariffs. That will increase your buying power in 2021 and help @thedemocrats economy flourish.

@Kris_Sacrebleu We should expect a ‘rhyming’ of our mid-19th century era surrounding our Civil War.
The #GOP (POTrump-#Republicans) shall end, leaving a blessed ‘conservative power drought’ lasting about as long as the Lincoln-to-Arthur 24-yr. GOP dominant era; we’ve no time for conservatism.
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼There will be far too much to prosecute, legislate for, and plan if we are to last another century.
Do NOT expect assassinations. Do expect continued domestic terror and prodding from, . . . wait for it . . . —RUSSIA.
The thing yoking America today, 👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼 as much as slavery once did, is the scourge of #PartyPolitics which bred corporate control via sponsorship; #Democrats thankfully do acknowledge this, so look for the Dems to do the one thing they do best: self-dismantle their own power through #ElectionReform, 👇🏼

1/ Here’s a 🧵 of all the endorsements I’ve found for @PeteButtigieg, organized chronologically. If I accidentally omit anyone, I’ll add them at the end. I’ll also add new endorsements as they’re announced.
Thank you, endorsers!
2/ I believe @SteveGrossmanMA became the first to endorse #Pete2020, on 4/11. He is a former DNC Chair, former Massachusetts State Treasurer, and current CEO of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a non-profit that trains inner-city entrepreneurs.…
3/ Grossman called Pete “a Midwestern, down-to-earth, smart, savvy, in-touch candidate” who can flip industrial states. “My concern is the future of the US... I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”

Trump was elected with the support of roughly 1/4 of all eligible voters (almost half of all eligible voters didn't even vote that year.)

If we really want change, we have to get involved & help others see the importance of voting. We must expand the vote.
#FridayFeeling 1/7
.@swingleft has focused in past elections on key swing districts to flip them #redtoblue

Now they're focusing on 11 states to win the Senate, the White House, & #redistricting for Democrats.

We can all help whether we're in those states or not. 2/7…
We can help

After the Supreme Court refused to rule on state gerrymandering cases, we have to flip state legislatures blue to get fair maps. Grassroots is focusing in these key 9 states. Help from anywhere. #EndGerrymandering #FridayFeeling #BlueWave 3/7

The ⁦@GOP⁩ says elections have consequences, then start civil wars when they lose. Republicans in Oregon have run away from work and taken protection from domestic terrorists. ⁦⁦@BrianBoquistGOP⁩ threatened cops lawfully sent to retrieve him…
Meanwhile, popular vote loser Trump is ruling by decree. A #BlueWave in November has seen its legislation blocked by @senatemajldr. @GOP losers in state legislatures gutted gubernatorial power on their way out...

And @JoeBiden and @SenSchumer still mewl about “working together.”
The elected Oregon Democratic supermajority is trying to pass CLIMATE CHANGE legislation. That’s what the @GOP is running away from. Threatening police about. (Wonder how many of the craven cowards have #BlueLivesMatter bumper stickers?)

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"
#ClimateChangeIsReal #ThursdayThoughts
"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

And as someone who has lived in #NY10 for most of the past 35 years, I will run for Congress on the principle that we need to overhaul the Democratic Party to fight for TRUE justice.

#Mueller #Barr #Impeachment
As a lifelong Dem who has spent two decades in the political trenches, I REFUSE to have a Tea Party Republican like #JustinAmash be more princpled in defense of the rule of law than the Democratic leadership. What was the #BlueWave for if not accountability?

#ImpeachNOW #Mueller
#IMPEACHMENT is the very LEAST America is owed after a hostile power cyber-attacked us and tilted our election to a Republican autocrat.

If you're a patriot, you defend America against threats to our democracy. Otherwise, step aside and let real patriots do the job.

Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.

This is what happens when white nationalism infuses immigration policy.

Looking at you, @FAIRImmigration, @CIS_org, and @numbersusa
Lawmakers must stop inviting and listening to these groups. They are mouthpieces for white nationalism, not a legitimate "opposing viewpoint."

They've created a framework for immigration discourse built on "fear of an invasion."

That's textbook white nationalism.
When I called the out in this video, they accused me of being an operative for the Qatari government paid to meddle in the midterms.

Paranoid much?

That's also textbook white nationalism.

Mueller report, a warning:
They have spent every single day since Mueller was appointed, on every single TV network, in every single national print / text outlet, on every national radio news outlet, sewing doubt about Mueller and his investigation.
-- more
2. Now the plan is, get the report, after a month or six weeks of Kabuki Theater, and use it as the basis for further action.
If the #BlueWave wasn't really a #BluePuddle that action would be Impeachment, but that's not polite, and they might say mean things to us, so ... Nah.
3. So, we get the Mueller report, and then the whole country goes on saying,
"He did this."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."

Ok.. Thread on voting because the establishment voters ain't listening.

1) Get a Fμ©KING CLUE Dem #BlueWave folks: We are PROGRESSIVES

If you have Questions about what that means in practice, please see my pinned.

We DO NOT operate on your #CultOfPersonality crap.
Full Stop
We don't operate on #CultOfPersonality BECAUSE OF OBAMA Cosplaying a progressive like a Furry in Las Vegas and then 109% #Ratfuxing us ALL on every level to service bribers at OUR expense.
This, and the utter disgust generated by @BarackObama @HillaryClinton and their decades of duplicitous lies is also how Trump got into office
Y'ALL think because you choose 2 make excuses we should as well

It doesn't work that way w Progressives

The absolute STUPIDEST thing that Trump could do now is to attempt once again to gut America's healthcare.. it's literally the thing that won us the Midterms, & we weren't nearly as angry then as we are now. His ego is even more astonishing now... Just stunning. #BlueWave #GOTV
2-I was just reading some of @TeaPainUSA 's stuff and he quoted Napoleon Bonaparte, who said, "Never interrupt your enemy when he's making a mistake" Perhaps that's going to be great advice for us from this point on. LET them tank the election!

I've been thinking a lot about this thread on @NancyPelosi and #impeachment since I posted it and about stuff that's happened since.

And I've changed my mind, though I still stand by all the bits past the baby sloth.

I've been thinking about the last two years, where we are now, and where we're going.

Like many of you, I'm used to things moving very slowly. The last two years, they've been running at breakneck speed toward the edge of a cliff.

They're not slowing down, so we can't either.
Michelle Obama said, "Being president doesn't change who you are; it reveals who you are."

She's right.

Trump never hid who he was. Not ever. He never had to. He was in a position where he could always be the way he is—selfish, narcissistic, and greedy—and it paid off.

Here's a partial list of @realdonaldtrump's broken promises dating back to his announcement he was running for @POTUS. Many of these promises were made to set him apart from other @GOP candidates & get support from his "base"...
...Trump promised to fully finance his own campaign. He didn't. In fact it was almost entirely funded by PACs, SuperPacs, corporate & elite 1% donations. Some indication of foreign contributions. Only money he spent went to compensate Cohen for paying off porn stars...
...He would build a 30 to 60 foot concrete wall & Mexico would pay for all of it. Not a single inch of new wall has been built. Further, he's scaling down to "barriers" & finally he's taking money from U.S. taxpayers already slotted to the Military, Disaster Relief & Medicaid...
