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…
Anti-vaxxers brought white supremacists to the CA State Capitol to oppose my vaccination oversight bill #SB276 in 2019. #StopAntiVaxViolence #Ivax2protect #FakeMEsHurtKids @VaccinateCal

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.

In your mind

ATTN All Angry Americans:
Please do not do anything to validate the attempt to demonize the Right as domestic terrorists

One protest got out of hand
They want to use it to shut down our speech & assembly

Violence helps them
Not us
We'll beat them other ways
The replies prove my point

The Left is using the storming of the Capitol smear the Right as terrorists & coup plotters

By this logic all BLM protesters
Are insurrectionists too

A small group of losers did the evil sh*t
They're being arrested
They can rot in jail
I'm willing to call the scumbags with zip ties & pipe bombs at the Capitol domestic terrorists

As long as the scumbags who killed cops & civilians & attacked federal buildings fm Antifa & BLM are too

He's unraveling & is a danger to others.

He is #unfit to be POTUS.

But make no mistake. He knows EXACTLY what he is doing.

Listen to his words. His psychopathy is on full display as he coaxes masses into more violent blowouts. May also provide cover if he's a #FlightRisk.
What is Trump's END game?

Yes, he needs to counter the pain of world-stage humiliation with a BIG-BANG display of power.

But there may be much more brewing than his fake HOLY WAR.

The blaze-of-glory bedlam to come may also be a massive #distraction.

With one foot in reality, his #psychopathic survival instincts are likely still in charge.

He knows that his militia will lose & that a #SelfPardon will not protect him from legal consequences at the state level.

So of course, he *is* a #FlightRisk.

But there's more.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words a video is worth Billions.” #doublestandards #america #hypocrisy #whitesupremacy #racism #maga #domesticterrorism #trumptreason Tell the truth @attorneycrump 💥✊🏾.

In common parlance the term prima facie is used to describe the apparent
nature of something upon initial observation. In legal practice the term generally is used to describe two things: the presentation of sufficient evidence by a civil claimant to support the legal claim (a prima facie case), or a piece of evidence itself (prima facie evidence)
Evidence is clear. We have receipts.

Nothing can stop what's coming! 😳

As Qanon groupthink sweeps the country, and the world, it has begun to take on a life of it's own and, to some degree, create the apocalyptic reality it continues to prophesy!

Can we deprogram a Nation?
"It is a movement united in mass rejection of reason, objectivity, and other Enlightenment values. And we are likely closer to the beginning of its story than the end."
"The group harnesses paranoia to fervent hope and a deep sense of belonging. The way it breathes life into an ancient preoccupation with end-times is also radically new. To look at QAnon is to see not just a conspiracy theory but the birth of a new religion."

1. I know I've been raging angry since the #MAGA #DomesticTerrorism attack on our nation, but for 20+ years I swore allegiance to the US Constitution, and I'm still so furious that our own POTUS would encourage our very own citizens to attack our nation.

2. The oath of office we vets take isn't something to be taken lightly. I would literally give up my life to protect our leaders, even those I disagree with. I would lay down my life for people like Trump, @LindseyGrahamSC, & even @tedcruz. I would take a bullet for all of them.
3. The fact that they would not only support, but still continue to encourage the #MAGATerrorists doesn't just hurt me as a citizen, but it destroys me as a disabled combat veteran. Their support of those who wish to bring down our country hurts me in ways #ISIS never could.

Thanks @thesmacleodshow for tackling this under-reported issue .

As EAC explained, Clearwater has 6,500 traps on one gigantic boat (used to be 8,000), while Indigenous fishers have 50 traps.

💥 IMPORTANT REMINDER: Other groups are planning terrorist attacks, more arrests are expected

In a spate of national television interviews Thursday and Friday, Nessel said she expected more arrests would be made… via @detroitnews
but said it was unlikely those individuals are linked to the specific group at issue in the kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

She noted her department's investigations involve right-wing groups, but NO Antifa or left-wing groups.

Michigan Attorney General
Dana Nessel.

“There remains a number of individuals, a number of groups that are out there and that continue to plan attacks of domestic terrorism, not just in Michigan but in a multi-jurisdictional fashion across many states,” Nessel told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Thursday.

🚨‼️FBI thwarts coup plot to violently overthrow the government and kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer by right-wing militia.

And Republicans have the audacity to gaslight that Trump hasn't been America's chief domestic terrorist inciter & sympathizer.
🚨FBI: Militia plotted TERRORIST ACTS against Michigan police, plotted to kidnap Michigan governor, to violently overthrow the government, and incite a civil war. 7 members of "Wolverine Watchmen" militia charged in the conspiracy.

#DomesticTerrorism #RightWingTerrorism
Fmr FBI McCabe: The person MOST responsible for fomenting this sort of violence is the US president. Trump's daily berating the democratic process, claiming election is rigged & replete w/ fraud—all false—is exactly the rhetoric that triggers violent extremists to take action.
