What really is the Democratic Left?
Thread

Combating MSM, @DNC & the Right's misinformation campaign, propaganda & lies about where Left, Center & Right actually are politically w/ some fucking history & facts to protect our #Democracy from modern slavery #Neoliberalism.
French Revolution Nat. Assembly seating was origins of political Left & Right spectrum designations.

Left wanted reform, new constitution w/ Declaration of Rights of Man & of Citizen

Right wanted to continue Ancien Régime - monarchy & feudal nobility

2/
Examples:
1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
2. These rights are liberty, property, safety and resistance against oppression.
5. The law has the right to forbid only actions harmful to society...

1/ @voiceofsandiego suspects @SDDistAtty @SummerStephan may be leaving the #Republican Party. Why? Read her rambling response: bit.ly/DA_Defects_Exh…

What is clear: #SanDiego is full of ambitious politicians who change party, office and/or districts to stay in/run for office.
2/ Related: 2 of 3 recent Chairs of @sandiegodems were "reformed" #Republicans

They changed their party registration then worked against #progressives when they run against #moderates. Women of color were especially impacted by moderate party policies & actions in 2018
3/ @sandiegodems used "member communication" $ to attack @CD4Monica @vivianmorenoSD in their elections

Both women won- despite institutional #Democrat opposition. Hopefully this teaches local Democrats about the power & need for #diversity & representation in #SanDiego politics

🚨 Thread on rooftop solar & net metering! 🚨

This past week @mitenergy published a podcast in which we discuss the economics of rooftop solar, and, in particular, issues related to equity, net metering, & rooftop PV.

See the podcast below, & check out this thread for more!
Before I dive in, I want to note that many of the findings in this thread are early & stem from my PhD dissertation. I'm hoping that the #EnergyTwitter hivemind will provide feedback to improve the work. Please don't hesitate to *constructively* criticize. That's why I'm here!
As #Democratic presidential candidates lay out their climate plans, many have put clean power and justice at the core of their policies.

In my PhD dissertation, I dove into one energy justice issue: How does rooftop solar adoption and rate design impact vulnerable communities?

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

We waited for election officials to give us a "do-over" after the 2016 election

We waited for Republicans to save us

We waited for the courts to save us

We waited for the Mueller Report to save us

We waited for a newly elected #Democratic House to save us

They didn't save us
Only #WeThePeople will save us

Speaking out will save us

Pressuring our Congresspeople will save us

Action will save us

Flooding the streets will save us

Caring about our country will save us

On Election Day 2016, I was at the @NCGOP viewing party in downtown Raleigh. I was there "on assignment" during my first semester earning my master's in reporting at @UNCMJschool.

The #MuellerReport explains part of what I saw that night. 1/13
After it was clear that Trump won the presidency, all attention turned to the state race. It was too close to call. @DallasWoodhouse got on stage to update the audience. McCrory did not make an appearance. 2/13
Woodhouse said they were still waiting on results from #Durham, which had extended its polling hours due to glitches w/ the electronic polling books. @VRelection was the company providing the electronic poll books. newsobserver.com/news/local/cou… 3/13

THREAD

In the 2016 Democratic Primaries, Hillary Clinton got around 55% of the vote, Bernie got around 45%.

Current polls show approx: Warren 6%, Harris 8%, Klobuchar 1%, Gabbard 0%, Gillibrand 0%. That's a total of 15% of the vote going to women candidates, 85% to the men.
That means there's around 30% of the Democratic base (like 5 million people) who supported Hillary in 2020, are choosing a male candidate to support rather than one of the female candidates. Assuming she had 50/50 support, that is around 2.5 million women, give or take.
The notion in 2016, and even stronger today, is that you must inherently be a sexist if you prefer one of the males to the women. This is often said by women (as you'd imagine) If that's the case, why are there so many women (around 2.5 million)not supporting a woman candidate?

🏆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.

Okay, this is a blockbuster article you just have to sit down and read through slowly.

You gotta believe @nytimes fact-checked the hell out of it before printing.

Here are the highlights (or lowlights):
nytimes.com/2019/02/19/us/…
Creepy acting AG #Whitaker told people his role at @TheJusticeDept was to “jump on a hand grenade” for @realDonaldTrump.

His real job is exactly the opposite: rule of law, fearlessly followed.

This merits further investigation. OPR/@JusticeOIG are you awake?
.@realDonaldTrump tried to put a “loyalist” in charge of the SDNY investigation (doing Cohen case and more), obviously to protect himself.

This is strong evidence of an attempt to obstruct justice, also meriting further investigation.

1. At the recent #SOTU address, women legislators dressed in white attempting to make a "striking visual statement" about how the Trump administration has handled issues important to women, from health care to equal pay. Oddly the visual backfired on these #Democrat woman.
2. Why did they sit stone faced silent for accomplishments like catching sex traffickers and putting these creeps in jail, freeing young girls from sexual slavery, and the remarkable fact that under Trump unemployment for woman is now at an all time low. Why no applause?
3. The only time these #Democratic #Hypocrites rejoiced is when @realDonaldTrump pointed out that there were more woman in congress than every before in history. They praise only their own accomplishment of merely being elected, not any concrete results of any of their efforts.

@afbranco Because people today have a short attention span / are flat lazy we will highlight some excerpts from #JulianMcall's article on Linkdin regarding comments by Mayor #MarshallKamena of #Livermore #California RT @DunbarJoseph #QAnon @Reinebow23 @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul @Ange6H777
@afbranco @DunbarJoseph @Reinebow23 @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul @Ange6H777 First of all this is not an attack on #obama/#hillaryclinton: Their actions stand for themselves. Whilst #cnn constantly hammers President #Trump with unverified stories/comments etc they give absolutely no accountability to barry or the hag RT #QAnon @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul
@afbranco @DunbarJoseph @Reinebow23 @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul @Ange6H777 The comment regarding @POTUS are things such as: undignified, no decorum, no statesmanship'. To this we say so f'n what.

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
#HappyNewYear2019
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

'#NorwayPlus'
assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

🌎Donald Trump—🌪️Roger Stone—🔥Paul Manafort—🌬️Roy Cohn
There are so many connections between these four gentlemen, but the common thread between them all appears to be Roger Stone.

washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/…
🔪But Stone’s rules: “Attack, attack, attack—never defend” and “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.” This “advice” came via renowned attorney Roy Cohn, who represented Donald Trump late in Cohn’s life.

vanityfair.com/news/2017/06/d…
🌬️Cohn’s "original" 3-dimensional strategy via @vanityfair article: 1. Never settle, never surrender. 2. Counter-attack, counter-sue immediately. 3. No matter what happens, no matter how deeply into the muck you get, claim victory and never admit defeat.”

🍊Sound familiar?

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

Thread 1. My latest #ElectionSecurity reporting on the presence of a #WiFi signal in the tabulating room in #Dallas TX - the state where @BetoORourke lost his #Senate race to @tedcruz truthout.org/articles/new-e…
2. The investigation is over a backdrop of previous trouble that #Dallas County had with the results in the March #Democratic #Primary where multiple precincts had more #votes than #voters. Never a good thing.
3. On @TheBradBlog I talk about the investigation & play exclusive audio of #LauraPressley, an engineer coordinating #election observers all over #TX who discovered the irregularities, so you hear directly from the person who is reporting the #WiFi signal. bradblog.com/?p=12780

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

🌊🗳️#Democratic Americans—the ones who are standing up for Democracy—have gone to "extraordinary lengths" to promote candidates and get out the vote. They've:

▶️Quit jobs
▶️Delayed school
▶️Moved across country
▶️Worked without pay

To stand up for Democracy and their country.
🙌👊Thank you to all of them.

@nytimes: Their zeal speaks to the historic political moment, in which a dizzying array of House races across the country have begun to feel as consequential as a presidential election.

💥💥Swing Left @swingleft reported that they knocked on more than one million doors!!!
