If we re-ran the 2016 Election, and only the people who voted in that election could participate, AND no one could change their '16 vote, Trump would lose by a wide margin. The reason is extremely important to the 2020 race.

#Election2020
The most important thing to understand about Trump and the GOP is that their voters are dying. Rapidly. I warned them about this eight years ago.

#Election2020
Trump can't win, or even make the race close, without establishing a new base among voters who never participated before - because his support in concentrated among dying voters in shrinking places.

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters. 1 in 8 voters in #Georgia was flushed off the voter rolls. But the vote-rigging Kemp was involved in is not limited to Georgia... gregpalast.com/palast-scores-… #VanishingVoters
#BrianKemp was in a conspiracy, and I use that word very carefully, with #KrisKobach, the white supremacist former Secretary of State of Kansas who's Trump’s Vote-Thief-in-Chief. risingupwithsonali.com/2020/02/11/geo…
#BrianKemp worked with #KrisKobach not only to purge voters in #Georgia, but using Kobach's Interstate #Crosscheck system they targeted 7 million voters of color in 30 states. vimeo.com/390830177 #VanishingVoters

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters from the rolls in #Georgia before the 2018 gubernatorial race against #StaceyAbrams — who was the first African American woman to run for Governor in the U.S. blavity.com/gov-brian-kemp…
But Kemp's racist vote-purging tricks go way beyond Georgia. He worked with #KrisKobach, Trump's Vote-Thief-in-Chief, who used the #InterstateCrosscheck voter purge list generated by Kemp in Georgia to target voters of color in 30 states. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
That's what flipped #Michigan to Trump and helped steal the presidency in 2016. And it'll happen again in 2020, unless we're able to expose and stop the GOP's election-stealing tricks. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

It’s clear from the growing vocal support for Bloomberg that Dems are ready to just give up fighting for their ideals and instead give in to a lazy savior mentality. Electing Bloomberg might get rid of Trump but Trump is a symptom of the disease. Bloomberg wouldn’t heal us.
See this tweet and attached article:
I get the appeal. If Bloomberg is the nominee, his money will do the work for us. We can stop fighting so hard.

But it’s a false promise. Bloomberg is partially to blame for our current situation: he helped re elect Pat Toomey here in PA, leading to an R senate.

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"

"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP web.archive.org/web/2012020417…

Why Andrew Yang is not for America. His first plan, most comprehensive plan, is UBI(1,000 a month). The biggest issue with this is it doesn’t stack with things like Snap, Tanf, SSI, and many more programs people rely on.
If you go to Andrew Yang's site, he claims it stacks with Social Security Disability... the thing is, not everyone who is disabled has worked enough to collect Social Security, so they get SSI instead. You cannot collect SSI AND UBI at the same time. You must choose one.
Yang's site makes the claim that "Even some people who receive more than $1,000 a month in SSI would choose to take the Freedom Dividend because it has no preconditions."

USA Today reports on #Ohio's voter purges noting that:

1. The young were disproportionately purged: Nearly 1 out of 3 purged voters was age 25 to 34. usatoday.com/in-depth/news/…
2. Where a party preference could be determined based on the last partisan primary in which the voter cast a ballot, Democrats outnumbered Republicans almost 2 to 1. usatoday.com/in-depth/news/…
Our experts have been screaming that the big purge attacks young voters — i.e. Democrats. The excuse is that they’ve moved out of #Ohio. They haven’t. They are students and renters who moved to a new dorm or down the street. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

2020 brings critical Presidential and Senate elections.
It's also our last chance to build progressive power in state legislatures ahead of 2021 #redistricting.

We've identified 10 states with the biggest 2020 opps for our model of progressive change.

sisterdistrict.com/states
We're channeling our energy in 2020 toward progressive candidates in these 10 states.

Each of these fits one of our strategic buckets: Blue Flips, Blue Holds, Blue Inroads.

We've focused on states where the state legislature controls redistricting.

sisterdistrict.com/states
In 2020, we're also focusing on states with important U.S. Senate or congressional races, and swing states with crucial Electoral College votes.

Because investing locally in blue voter outreach also helps the top of the ticket.

@STUinSD "Listen you idiots, and you shall hear- of the midnight #impeachment by 'Nancy Revere'.
In January, of Twenty-Ought,
Democrats sought impeachment, with evidence- naught.

She said to her cronies: "If the President stays, it'll mean the end of our thieving days."
1)
@STUinSD Grabbing a pen, in the Capital Tower, She and her minions constructed lies by the hour. One phony Article written, they added another- even more vague and ludicrous- but full of more busy bother.

2)
@STUinSD The MSM hacks ready to ride through the land, spreading their sour notes, like a drunk ken, broken band.

To the peoples' good they cared for none, since their own interests and election were priorities two and one.

Some quick facts about @AndrewYang’s Freedom Dividend:

$1000 per month unconditional cash for every American 18+

Would equate to a 24% raise for somebody making $50k/yr

Can completely finance $100k student loan in about 8.5 yrs

Will NOT result in inflation because...
Inflation results from printing new money. Inflation also results from sharp increases in demand and/or sharp decreases in supply. The Freedom Dividend will not do any of these things.

The Freedom Dividend recognizes that we, as humans, have intrinsic value that is separate...
separate from economic value. The person who is homeless and unemployable due to mental illness will still have $1000/month income... money for food/water/clothing and creates an incentive for community leaders to build more shelters for part of that income stream.

Trump's going to steal the 2020 election. It doesn't matter how good the Dem's campaign is or how much they spend on ads. Clinton outspent Trump by almost a $1 billion in 2016, but Trump is in the White House because we have an apartheid voting system. gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
#Georgia's ground zero for vote theft. You think of it as a Republican state, but it's going to be the first Deep South white minority state. So the Dems can't lose — unless the GOP steals it from them! gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
There aren't enough white people to elect Donald Trump in states like Georgia. That's WHY the Republicans have stepped up their vote thieving games, which could absolutely reelect Trump — no matter the will of the people. thelondoneconomic.com/opinion/donald…

In tonight's debate, (which was my favorite debate of the election season so far), the final question asked candidates to either "ask forgiveness" or "give a gift" regarding the other candidates on stage. Out of the 7 candidates, the only 2 that asked forgiveness instead
of 'giving a gift' were the only 2 women on stage. Both @ewarren and @amyklobuchar asked forgiveness for their passion, their tone, and how "heated" they can get. This bothers me enormously. Though I recognize that this question, while a bit fluffy, was difficult and put the
candidates on the spot, I am extremely disappointed at the very clear gender dynamics at play in all of the candidates' answers to this question. While the male candidates overwhelmingly see themselves (and their presence in the campaign) as a gift, the only two women

#ElectionSecurity funding will NOT actually have to be used for Election Security.
$425M allocated in bill to be announced later today.
"the funding deal used the language in the Senate version" which has NO #security requirements.
thehill.com/policy/cyberse… via @jennycohn1
@jennycohn1 2/ Why is this bad? Because states will be pressured by vendors to buy risky & expensive #votingmachines that do not protect voters or #taxpayers. Plz call members of the appropriations committee & ask them to include the language from #HR3351.
@jennycohn1 3/ What is #HR3351? It's the 2020 govt. funding bill that passed the House. It's a massive bill that includes $ & #security requirements to help protect #Election2020.

Here is the language that relates to #ElectionSecurity.
