So I've been wondering why the hell the #GOP doesn't rein @realDonaldTrump in. They have to realize it's ruining their credibility, and he betrays all the things #conservatives are supposed to value. 1/
Not that #conservatives and #Republicans are the same thing, but the terms are conflated because in the past the #GOP platform has overlapped with #conservative (in the #EdmundBurke sense) values. 2/
@realDonaldTrump betrays Christianity, marriage, family, and American national security, and the #GOP is letting him. Why? 3/

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it
on my back porch and filled it
with seed. What a beauty of
a bird feeder it was, as I filled it
lovingly with seed.
Within a week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.
But then the birds started
building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table,
and next to the barbecue.

Then came the crap. It was
everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ...
everywhere!
Then some of the birds
turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to
peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own
pocket.

And others birds were
boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and
squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night

1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

THE WATCHMAN

[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.

#QAnon

This thread relates to recent #Q posts and gives a big-picture explanation of the massive #Treason that #POTUS and #WhiteHats have been fighting. This almost led to a military #Coup against #Traitor44's regime.

Graphic below acts as a map to clarify key elements.

Many of the crucial components of the #Treason are contained w/in the "Shell Game" report compiled by #Patriot #ScottBennett. This was recently publicized on the internet, explained in this thread:

Ever wonder why #DEM AND #GOP leadership opposed #Trump w/such animus? #Flynn and #Trump knew about the level of #Corruption/#Treason involving the elite, on BOTH sides of the aisle. Trump would discover, reveal, and punish their crimes (#DrainTheSwamp).

This thread is a report on Ste Matthew Murray. He is a prolific #Labour Party activist heavily involved at grassroots levels with the #JC4PM campaign - who has participated in, and sent me, extremist anti-Semitic propaganda and abuse, despite knowing that I'm Jewish.
Yesterday - despite my disagreements with her political views - I supported #RuthSmeeth, after hearing of her ordeal with anti-Semitic abuse. I criticised both @jeremycorbyn and @DerbyChrisW (who has since blocked me). As a result, Ste sent me ~20 provocative and abusive Tweets.
Despite knowing my background (after replying to previous Tweets which evidenced the fact I was Jewish), Ste sent me a meme depicting #AmberRudd - telling me "you are not on zee list", with a reference to Nazi Germany. He also sent me a picture of the Auschwitz death camp.

You voted to initiate A50, Ken Clarke didn't.

The UK is a founding member of the EASA which Rolls-Royce uses on a daily basis.

Will Rolls Royce be moving to Spain due to your vote?

Now that the @Conservatives have
stopped being the: "party of business" and are now the "erstwhile party of business” what should SME's do?

A simple guide (for simpletons) of the left-right political spectrum and why #Nazism and #fascism are left-wing (#socialist) ideologies.

If you were taught that they were right-wing ideologies, you were sucked into the #fakenews story of the century
First, let's define the terms.
"left-wing" is collectivism - socialism - state control
"right-wing" is individualism - capitalism - free market limited government

If you disagree, you will need to #provemewrong and provide some definitions yourself.
You could always look at the #politicalcompass which explains it a bit further.
The left-right scale is economic
The libertarian-authoritarian is social

. @neil_parish MP for Tiverton & Honiton

When you voted to trigger A50 you knew that the
Govt ref. leaflet sent to every household did not mention the
Good Friday Agreement & how leaving the EU will impact it.

Why did you vote to trigger A50?
Ken Clarke MP didn't.

@neil_parish MP for Tiverton & Honiton

When you voted to trigger A50
you knew that regulatory alignment would be required for
Northern Ireland, as highlighted by the phase 1 report from 2017,
requiring both the SM & CU.
Does it not make sense to stay in the CU & SM?

@neil_parish MP for Tiverton & Honiton

When you voted to trigger A50
you knew that it would have customs implications for everything from cars to fresh food.

If there is no deal how long will supermarkets have fresh produce on their shelves?

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.

The announcement by the #POTUS that he is replacing National Security Advisor LTG H R #McMaster with #Ambassador #JohnBolton is great news. This is an over due change that I wish Mr #Trump had made long ago.
John #Bolton is probably the most experienced and capable #diplomat in America today. He will be coming in at a critical time when the #President needs solid advice on dealing with #Iran, #NorthKorea, #Russia, #ISIS, and an array of other threats.
As for LTG #McMaster, I thank him for his service and wish him the best in the future. That said, there were issues, as I see them, regarding the #General’s tenure.
