For years, anarchists, socialists + antifascists have given their lives in the fight against ISIS + in support of the autonomous confederation of Rojava in so-called Northern Syria. Praised by US politicians + pundits as heroes against ISIS, yet demonized at home as "terrorists."
Michael Israel from #Sacramento, #California was a member of the #DSA and the @iww. He was killed by the Turkish State in an air strike north of Raqqa. He was on his second tour with the #YPG.
@iww Anna Campbell, an anarchist from the UK, became the first British woman to be killed in the conflict, dying alongside other YPJ volunteers during the Turkish attack on Afrin. Her death began an international campaign to have her body returned home. theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2…

Had a chance to join our friends with @Earthworks over this last weekend in exposing oil and gas industry's toxic air pollution using infrared cameras.

We checked out #fracking facilities along #Colorado's Front Range, where industry's pollution fueling region's smog pollution,
In case you didn't know, @Earthworks has an AMAZING campaign to help expose oil and gas industry's toxic air pollution.

Problem is pollution invisible to the naked eye. Using infrared technology, they're exposing what these emissions truly look like,

Using oil and gas industry's own technology and own methods, they've exposed toxic air pollution at hundreds of facilities in U.S. and even internationally.

They have a trove of footage available on their @YouTube site,

#Colorado Amendments and Propositions on the 2019 Ballot

Look at the prop CC language. “Without raising taxes...”. They literally want to take away TAX refunds that are due to residents per the Colorado Constitution.

sos.state.co.us/pubs/elections…
And these refunds are projected to kick in next tax season.
denverpost.com/2019/06/19/col…

All Prop CC is is a test. They really want this:
denverpost.com/2019/06/17/tab…

Oh & look at Prop DD. They want you to give them the permission to RAISE TAXES & threw in the carrot: sports betting 😂
Of course, everything the Colorado Leftist Socialist do and propose is “for the kids”.

Data from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System (ARCOS) became publicly available from the @washingtonpost. The database tracks every legally sold #opioid pill in the US from manufacture to distribution. #opioidcrisis #painmanagement
The @Washingtonpost analyzed data & looked specifically at hydrocodone (the opioid in Vicodin) and oxycodone (the opioid in Percocet & OxyContin) between 2006-2012.
These opioids alone made up 75% of the total opioids shipped during this period and accounted for 76 BILLION pills. #oxycodone #hydrocodone @JeromeAdamsMD

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.

The #Gerrymandering decision from the #SupremeCourt still stings. The level of polarization in our politics and the lack of true representation in Congress (and many states) is on account of #Gerrymandering. Thread below. denverpost.com/2019/06/27/col…
In our brief, we made the case for judicial oversight of extreme partisan gerrymandering: “Deliberately drawing districts for the purpose of keeping one party in power for the long term, and without any neutral justification for the result, has no place in our political system.”
The consequences of #Gerrymandering are dire--“It discourages voter participation, increases distrust of government, and reduces the responsiveness of elected representatives.”

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

Huge #cleanenergy news to kick off week!

@GuzmanEnergy offering to buy three of @TriStateGT's #coal-fired power plants (and a coal mine), shut them down, replace them with #renewables.

Tri-State would be crazy to pass up this deal,

energynews.us/2019/05/28/wes…
Deal would shutter @TriStateGT's Craig power plant in NW #Colorado, also Escalante plant in #NewMexico.

@GuzmanEnergy would replace costly #coal w/more affordable #cleanenergy, saving Tri-State's rural electric co-op members higher rates, promoting local economic development.
According to @GuzmanEnergy release, proposal would also provide, "substantial financial assistance to communities negatively impacted by the early retirement of coal plants, to be driven by engagement directly with those
communities and other local partners."

Hey #Colorado peeps, here is what Justice Democrats do. As with #AOC, they put up this unknown Saira Rao character to "primary" the Democrat's own lifer Diana DeGette in CO 1. Saira promotes herself as an "intersectional feminist", a supporter of Black Lives Matter, ...
...a proponent of abolishing ICE, a hater of "white men" (her Twitter feed is a big pile of racist vomit), a hater of Beto (🍿),... oh my, she's a piece of work. Here's how bad DeGette beat her in the primary:
She's a literal nobody. Well, she did write a book that apparently nobody read (for good reason). Other than that, her only credentials for Justice Democrats to want to groom her for Federal public office are (a) she's a radical Leftist, (b) she's a racist, ...

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

#Wyoming Digital Assets act includes definitions of digital asset, digital consumer asset, digital security, #virtualcurrency, classification of assets under UCC, covers perfection against those assets, custody by banks, & jurisdiction by courts wyoleg.gov/Legislation/20… 1/x
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT: there is no uniform treatment of the various types of #cryptoassets. The IRS views them as property. Some cases & regulators- Shavers, Faiella FINCEN- view them as money equivalents. Some states do not view them as money equivalents- WY, SD, PA. 2/x
Some #cryptoassets are viewed by the CFTC as commodities, or by the SEC as securities. Courts have been inconsistent in their views of these assets. Uniform Acts seeking to bring clarity have not been passed in any jurisdiction. This is confusing for everyone including lawyers3/x

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
