In non-impeachment news, @ewarren just put out a plan to fight white nationalist violence. Thread on why it's really pretty good.…
It focuses on white nationalist VIOLENCE, rather than speech or ideology thus avoiding slippage between speech and action that we have seen in other contexts (e.g., targeting Muslims for terrorism based on their religious beliefs rather than their actions).
It correctly notes that the problem is that FBI hasn't traditionally given priority to white nationalist violence & this has to change.

1/ Delighted to report that Newsbreak 43 with Frederic Laroche on Monday, October 14, 2019 has produced immediate effect for the better in Frederic's situation. Frederic spoke w. me abt escalated Neuro DEW attacks & apparent mobbing, swarming, barricading.
2/ A key part of his report covered bobcat-style trucks, other equipment used to block parts of road, & pulled over to side, w. he snapshotted. (Many have reported EMF emitters hidden in construction trucks.) He reported increased emf attacks, neurotech after home-crisis w. ex.
3/ Frederic reports he was subjected to immediate DEW/neuro retaliation after Newsbreak 43, so went to the woods nearby, minus cellphone, and was able to sleep (something he has been reporting he was unable to do, thx to continued, escalated attacks recently.) But also, next morn

You can always count on politicians to go after the low hanging fruit, full well knowing those proposed initiatives-if ever enacted-will have very little impact on public safety.

Instead, they should focusing on combating the ideology that drives action.

“Lone offenders or small groups may radicalize to commit violence at home or attempt to travel overseas to become foreign fighters, while targeted violence has struck schools, workplaces and large public gatherings.”
What is CVE?

The term “countering violent extremism,” or CVE, refers to proactive actions to counter efforts by extremists to recruit, radicalize, and mobilize followers to violence.

Recent @UN Security Council report @UN_CTED the current state of ISIL, Al-Qaeda, and associated individuals and entities.… Grab a fresh cup of coffee and follow along as I highlight some key points that stood out to me......
@UN @UN_CTED 1. “ISIL, however, remains much stronger than AQ in terms of finances, media profile and current combat experience and terrorist expertise and remains the more immediate threat to global security.” There there's the death of Hamza bin Ladin.… @dbyman

THREAD: here is some expansion on what I discussed on @MSNBC @KasieDC RE: what could be done yesterday to elevate our Federal #DomesticTerrorism prevention efforts, h/t to @tribelaw for the thread prompt and @SeamusHughes for his insight 1/
My former office, @DHSgov Ofc of Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention once had a budget of $22 mil now $2.7-3 mil and once 40 FTEs now 7-10 FTEs, the #Trump Admin actively atrophied the office w/ specific focus on #DomesticTerrorism prevention programming 2/
This systematic atrophy included the pulling back of announced grant funding for programs specific to #DomesticTerrorism (DT) prevention, grant award were pulled back from #LifeAfterHate bc the org was critical of #Trump for example (evidence in FOIA req) 3/

2/ Exposing #ProudBoys corruption IS resisting fascism.

Exposure is disruptive to fascists like @MrAndyNgo who portray all those resisting fascism as violent so they can peddle their hatred under #1A.

They make no mention of violence endorsed by #PB/#PP members.
3/ What you can do:

1. Support data collection, analysis and educating the public on far right extremism.

2. #Resist fascist propaganda.

3. Care for your community.

4. Support countering violent extremism #CVE nonprofits like @lighttuponlight.

1. What can we learn about ISIS supporters based on the many different subtitled language translations that have appeared online since the emergence of a new video showing Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi? Some insights to follow, would welcome other thoughts (Image- Portuguese translation)
2. Ever since the video release on April 29, supporters of ISIS have rallied around their Emir, the caliph of the now caliphateless caliphate to strengthen their resolve and reaffirm their online resilience- something they refer to as 'media jihad' in 'Wilayat Internet'
3. Online, ISIS created a "sense of virtual community to which those who otherwise felt adrift and detached from their real communities were drawn" writes @jgeltzer in an excellent piece for @TheAtlantic…

Maar ook als biopsychosociaal kamp, kan je vinden dat in #CVE interveniëren obv leertheoretisch simplisme terwijl je niet doorgrondt waarin je intervenieert en patienten-feedback niet gebruikt om je hypotheses te falsifieren, een heilloze weg is, hoor>…

1/ Who am I?

I'm a #CVE researcher who studies the process of radicalization, social groups, and movements. In short, I look for ways to prevent people like the #CovingtonBoys from swiping even further right & endorsing white nationalism, ethnic separatism, or dom. terrorism.
2/ On Twitter, I identify as a “#ProudBoys Whisperer,” a tongue in cheek reference to the ethnographic fieldwork I do. This work involves many conversations like the one below.

3/ I also look for ways to help men and women innoculate themselves from falling down the #antifeminist/anti-#SJW /conspiratorial rabbit hole.

Thread. I recently tweeted about the link between #Interfaith & CVE/PVE funding, citing the excellent report by @ArunKundnani & #BenHayes.… #Prevent 1/
Yesterday I saw this article entitled "A Sobering Time For Interfaith" by Charlotte Littlewood. (Odd title as Allah s.w.t. Commanded Muslims to be sober at all times)… 2/
Right at the end of the article it says that Littlewood was involved in Countering Violent Extremism Projects. #CVE It is beyond any doubt to me that Interfaith is an attempt to normalise Muslim relationships with #zionists. 3/

1/ The City Council votes tomorrow on accepting over $425,000 in funds related to the Department of Homeland Security’s “Countering Violent Extremism” (CVE) program.

Here's why we are talking about CVE and demanding that the City Council keep #CVA out of Los Angeles!
About #CVE

2/ “Countering Violent Extremism” or CVE is an Islamophobic program created by the Department of Homeland Security to justify increased surveillance of Muslim communities, and therefore increase criminalization.
3/ CVE infiltrates Muslim communities disguised as “mental health support” and “social services” through K-12 school programs and partnerships with universities, organizations, and mosques/religious institutions.

CVE often takes the shape of grant money.
