#PA01 folks, we simply MUST have a conversation...

1⃣ about #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick,
2⃣his vote against the #DomesticTerrorism bill that he previously co-sponsored,
3⃣and his statement on this vote.

I did a little digging this weekend, and what I found is WILD.
🧵/1
First, a little background info about #DomesticTerrorism.

There is a basic legal definition on what that term means. It's already enshrined into law, in 18 U.S. Code § 2331.

You can read it below, or at this link⤵️

🧵/2
So, we know that #PA01's #GOp Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick co-sponsored the #DomesticTerrorism bill, and then did a complete reversal and voted NO on it.

He knew this behavior was SUPER-SKETCHY, so our #SilentBrian did something uncharacteristic - he issued a statement.

Just a reminder that 203 Republicans voted no on a bill that would create an Office of Domestic Terrorism in the DHS, FBI, and DOJ.

Let’s name them, shall we?

Find the ones from your state & them know how you feel about it. #DomesticTerrorism #RepublicansAreTheProblem

Payton Gendron is an *American problem*. Stop pretending these White domestic terrorists have to look outside our borders for inspiration/marching orders when all they have to do is watch Fox “news” & follow Republicans on social media. #ThisIsAmerikkka #WhereWereTheyRadicalized

Falsifying public records(lying/ omitting/ inserting) = Forgery 1: ORS 165.013

You can't change what you've done/ said that's already recorded and in violation of #DomesticTerrorism and #ORICO/#RICO laws.

Intentional/negligent/reckless unlawful charges after "notice" = Forgery. Image

Never forget!
#Sheriff's stood by like pu$$ie$ for the last 7 years of #riots and #DomesticTerrorism.
The #blue never backed you.
They helped shut down businesses.
They helped governors kill the young and old.
They helped kidnap and extort you for not wearing a mask.
#BackTheBlue
The #DomesticTerrorists would actually be completely powerless, if "#LawEnforcement" wasn't aiding and abetting, hindering prosecution, and failing and refusing to do their duties as the law dictates.
Interesting to think about... who's the real #EnemyOfThePeople here? 🤔
I wouldn't be facing false charges or be maliciously prosecuted to attempt to hide their embarrassing criminal conduct(already exposed for all to see), if #LawEnforcement did their duty.
I wouldn't have even been able to expose the widespread corruption, had they done their job.

Are we afraid to test the principle that no one is above the law?

Good question from @MattDallek
washingtonpost.com/outlook/2022/0…
"If Trump were indicted, he would become the first former president to stand criminal trial...

This list is hardly exhaustive and omits the dozen-plus civil lawsuits and civil investigations Trump faces."

washingtonpost.com/outlook/2022/0…
"The rule of law, the notion that we are all equal under our criminal justice system, is among the noblest of principles but also the ugliest of myths.

The question of putting Trump on trial ... is a test for a principle of democracy"

"many of the Oath Keepers present at the Capitol were military veterans. The U.S. government is unintentionally training its own insurrectionists"

"the Oath Keepers prepared to carry out terrorism — violence in pursuit of political change — unlike anything the United States has witnessed in recent history."

"Unlike in the case of international terrorism, where the US State Dept designates foreign terrorist organizations so that the Justice Department can then preemptively pursue investigations based on affiliations, no such designation process exists for domestic terror groups"

Family violence & sexual assault is Traumatic. There is overwhelming evidence of long term social & health impacts. We are increasingly aware of the huge no’ s of ppl living in our community with the scars of abuse. It remains unbelievable to me though that there is no
publicly funded service that deals specifically wt the mental & physical impacts of abuse in one safe venue with trauma informed staff. It’s been an honour to work wt
@sally_stevensxn @wtrcillawarra & an amazing team inc @trish_acullen @mike_salter to try & make this vision
a reality..we are now one step closer now with the ‘Federal Inquiry into Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence’ released today with Recommendation 77 supporting the Trauma Recovery Centre! This is so exciting & I hope there is follow through with this recommendation. #PTSD

In March of 1857, the United States Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, declared that all blacks -- slaves as well as free -- were not and could never become citizens of the United States. The court also declared the 1820 Missouri Compromise unconstitutional,
thus permiting slavery in all of the country's territories.

The case before the court was that of Dred Scott v. Sanford. Dred Scott, a slave who had lived in the free state of Illinois and the free territory of Wisconsin before moving back to the slave state of Missouri,
had appealed to the Supreme Court in hopes of being granted his freedom.

Taney -- a staunch supporter of slavery and intent on protecting southerners from northern aggression -- wrote in the Court's majority opinion that,

Congresswoman @ayannapressley does not mince words. She speaks truth to power. A white supremacist mob waving trump, maga, blue lives matter and confederate flags in the US Capitol were incited and encouraged by trump.
It was all based on a lie about a fraudulent election and a desire to invalidate millions of Black votes. There must be accountability for all who were responsible. The Impeachment will likely not result in a conviction.
This is due to the lack of principles and morality in the @GOP specifically the @SenateGOP . They are feckless and spineless. #neverforget #sedition #trumptreason #whitesupremacy #republicanparty There is no “turning the page” with out accountability.

They are anti-vaxxers . Anti-vaxxers are not harmless; they threaten and engage in violence while promoting lies that endanger lives. Just like white supremacists, which whom they now ally. We must reject both. #StopAntiVaxViolence

1. Want to end #DomesticTerrorism? Amend 18 USC 2333 and allow civil remedies not just for international terrorism, but list the domestic groups or make the elements part of the proof and allow the plaintiff bar to pursue domestic terrorists & affiliates with litigation.
2. I came up with the civil settlement of Ruby Ridge. I know how to deal with these folks. @RepJeffries @RepJerryNadler @SenatorDurbin.
3. Any why has nobody sued Donald Trump and his complicit crew including family for the damage including intentional infliction of emotions distress for 100 million people? Add Charles Koch and all his attorneys and their other affiliated clients if they touched the insurrection.
