THREAD:

Trump on January 20, 2017, said, "Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come."

What followed that has been two years of Trump's lies to the American people and his failure to hear their voices raised in protest.
After a campaign full of lies and empty promises to the American people, Trump began an unrelenting attack on our constitution and our established laws. He claimed he would be "transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People."
Yet the voice of the America MAJORITY has called out repeatedly the actions Trump has taken since he entered the office. The day after he took office millions of American women and men poured into the streets in protest.

Dear @WSJ,

Sorry, Mr. Rove, but #StaceyAbrams’ claim that the 2018 gubernatorial election was corrupted is hardly "unsupported." Our team found a half million-plus Georgians were purged from voter rolls by #BrianKemp in the year before the election. wsj.com/articles/stace…
They lost their vote on the ostensible grounds they’d left the state or voting county. We found 340,136 of those voters had never moved from where they originally registered. But Kemp took away their right to vote — while he was running for Governor. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
Mr. Rove is correct in stating these citizens were purged in accordance with #Georgia’s "Use It or Lose It" law. But that law only acts as an "alternative means" recognized by the National Voter Registration Act for determining if a voter has moved. truthout.org/articles/gops-…

1/ Chicago, the nation’s third-biggest city and a frequent political target of President Donald Trump, is facing a history-making municipal #electionday today.

We asked our colleagues at @ProPublicaIL to explain why it’s especially significant:
2/ The city will elect its first black woman as mayor — either Lori Lightfoot or Toni Preckwinkle.

3/ Two-term Chicago Mayor @RahmEmanuel — former chief of staff to @BarackObama — is leaving office after facing widespread criticism for his handling of the fatal police shooting of #LaquanMcDonald.

1. ELECTION RESULTS: PDP STATEMENT IS A PROVOCATIVE INSULT TO DEMOCRACY AND TO NIGERIA

The press statement dated February 24, 2019 by the @OfficialPDPNig is an unwarranted strike against democracy and the people of Nigeria.
V
2. The PDP in that press statement, recklessly calls on the @inecnigeria to arbitrarily name its candidate, Alh. Atiku Abubakar the winner of the presidential election.
3. This call is shameful and alarming. Unwilling to wait for @USLegendCars the constituted legal authority to complete its task, the PDP seeks a short cut by false and premature claims of victory. This cannot stand.

Why did #StaceyAbrams have to end the fight over the #Georgia count? Because #BrianKemp not only planned his crime carefully — and make no mistake, knowingly preventing citizens from voting is a crime — #Kemp also had a brilliant “getaway” scheme... truthout.org/articles/what-…
I saw it firsthand in DeKalb County, #Georgia on #ElectionDay. I knew that some portion of the 340,134 voters our team revealed had been wrongly purged would attempt to vote anyway — as is their right under federal law. gregpalast.com/heres-how-bria…
Any American that signs a statement that he or she is a citizen and provides a local address has the right to vote “provisionally.”

To claim another is "voting against their interests" is the most asinine claim to make.

Most assuredly, the issuer has zero idea what the other individuals interests actually are.
#election #Election2018 #ElectionFraud
Anyone making such a claim should really state it more accurately... "you voted against my interests"

Some are interested in cradle to grave big brother... Others are not. #justSaying

Folks only make an ass of themselves by assuming...

There is no getting away from the fact the GOP defied history. Outside of the House, Dems did horribly in their "Blue Wave" year.

Besides losing FL (Nelson and Gillium are done), they lost IN, ND, MO and nearly lost MT.
In addition (and being overlooked by MSM), Ds barely clung to their Senate seats in OH and MI (Michigan!), both states Trump won.

Caveats, like the closeness of the TX and AZ races are not really good news for Dems and are ALL ABOUT LOCAL POLITICS....

The #Midterms2018 have been exciting, but much of what we are seeing following #ElectionDay was expected by many. There were signs that the Left would stick to its old playbook (it has been successful for decades), and steal this election, too.

I hope this provides some comfort.

On May 11, 2017, @POTUS created a commission to investigate voter fraud, illegal voting, etc.

That commission was closed months later, but the intel needed to move forward was gathered.
The special elections, such as the Senate race in Alabama between Moore & Jones, were monitored by federal, state, & local officials to gather real time data on how the steal is carried out.

Some of these state had just carried Trump by +20% points, but suddenly went Democrat...

#Georgia Voter Purge Victim: “This Was a Strategy From Kemp” — my latest for @truthout truthout.org/articles/georg… #BrianKemp #Midterms2018 #StaceyAbrams #ElectionDay #VoterSuppression
Yasmin Bakhtiari was told she'd been purged by #BrianKemp because she hadn't voted in two election cycles. But the National Voter Registration Act is crystal clear: You cannot lose your vote for not voting. truthout.org/articles/georg… #Georgia #ElectionDay #VotingRights

1. #BrianKemp should have resigned as Secretary of State before he purged half a million Georgians, before he told the counties not to even hand out provisional ballots to people he had wrongly purged. salon.com/2018/11/09/vet… #Georgia #ElectionDay #StaceyAbrams #Midterms2018
2. #BrianKemp should have resigned before he started enforcing a system of #ExactMatch and other gimmicks that have basically suppressed the votes by literally the hundreds of thousands. salon.com/2018/11/09/vet… #Georgia #StaceyAbrams #StopTheSteal
To now to just come up with a gimmick like putting one of his flunkies in charge, a political hack in charge to replace him, is hardly blessing the #Georgia election as fair and democratic. salon.com/2018/11/09/vet…

"I'm Yasmin and I was blocked from voting for #StaceyAbrams.”

Yasmin Bakhtiari is just one of thousands of #Georgia voters who were purged by GOP Secretary of State #BrianKemp, without notice. gregpalast.com/92-year-old-ge… #ElectionDay #Midterms2018 #ElectionFraud
#Georgia voter Yasmin Bakhtiari was even blocked from casting a provisional ballot, despite waiting for over two hours in line and asking three times. In the end, she filed a complaint and left. #ElectionDay #Midterms2018 #ElectionFraud
This is why we’re suing #BrianKemp. As Secretary of State, he decided who was allowed to vote and which votes got counted—a clear conflict of interest while running against Abrams.

#MartinLutherKing’s Cousin Blocked by #BrianKemp from Casting a Ballot in #Georgia — Despite Voting in every Election for 50 Years gregpalast.com/martin-luther-… #ElectionDay #Midterms2018 #VoterSuppression
92-year-old Christine Jordan, who was blocked from voting in #Georgia by #BrianKemp, hangs with her granddaughter Jessica. Miss Christine, #MartinLutherKing’s cousin, talked about the family reunions with the Kings at her house. gregpalast.com/martin-luther-…
#Georgia's GOP Secretary of State, #BrianKemp, took away her right to vote exactly 50 years to the day since she cast her first ballot in Atlanta. To get back her vote, she is ready to sue #Kemp in federal court, "If someone will help me walk to the courthouse." Any volunteers?

For context, here's what happened in Nevada on #ElectionDay: Flipped a US Senate seat from R to D - Yes, @RosenforNevada! Kept 2 house seats for Dems. I see you @StevenHorsford and @SusieLeeNV! Elected a Dem governor for the 1st time in 20+ yrs. Governor @SteveSisolak! ... /1
Flipped almost all our constitutional offices from R to D - including our first ever African-American statewide victor. That's Lieutenant Governor, @KateMarshallNV, Attorney General, @AaronDFordNV, Treasurer, @ZConine, and Controller @cebyrnecpa. Not even close to being done. /2
Elected the first majority female state house under @JasonFrierson's leadership. 29 seats! Won in 2 competitive state senate seats with @donderoloopnv and @MelanieScheible - plus still too close in SD20 with @pazina_julie. #NVLeg 2019 will have more women than ever before. /3

Better yet, folk need to give up on trying to change racist White women/men and focus on fighting unconstitutional voter suppression that’s wiping Black folk with good sense off the rolls.
I’ve been saying this #onhere since I joined Twitter 10 years ago. If White liberals don’t get serious about fighting racist voter suppression in the South and all across America, Democrats will continue to underperform where/when it counts the most.
These red/purple state D candidates are going to keep coming up short bc the national party apparatus is too busy trying to accommodate wishy washy unreliable White voters to actually FIGHT voter suppression and give the Black base a shot at a level playing field. It’s surrender.

1/ Texas Democrats were hoping for a historic year in 2018. What they got instead was hope for 2020.

3/ Other bright spots for Democrats came in the U.S. House and the Texas House, where Democrats knocked off powerful Republicans.

Votes were still being counted in some precincts, but turnout shattered previous midterm records across the coast, and voters made history by sending diverse leaders to state houses and to Washington. 1/ #ElectionDay
Republicans, who held majorities in both chambers of the U.S. Congress since 2012, lost control of the House despite a late push by President Trump & some candidates to fear monger and scapegoat immigrants in order to increase voter turnout among Trump supporters. 2/ #ElectionDay

Sometimes I hate being right. This morning we said that purged voters’ provisional "placebo” ballots could decide the #Georgia governor's race: gregpalast.com/purged-voters-…

And today we spoke to two such GA voters who's been forced to vote on provisional ballots...

Lines outside precincts in North Charleston. Machine malfunctions and laptop malfunctions, and worker shortages are creating two hour waits. We’re in touch with the ED of the Bd of Elections to try and get resources to the precincts that need it. #ElectionDay
More from that precinct in N. Charleston. We have to do better America. #ElectionDay
Also hour and a half to two hour waits on Johns Island and James Island in South Carolina. Poll mgrs say they’ll stay as long as necessary, so if you’re in line, don’t leave. #ElectionDay

THREAD: Return to this thread throughout the night for breaking updates on adult-use legalization in Michigan and North Dakota, and medical cannabis legalization in Missouri and Utah (and well as a number of other significant cannabis-related efforts across the US).

1/
Democrat @CharlieCrist won re-election for the US House in Florida's 13th congressional district.

The cannabis connection? Crist held a roundtable in August with @Surterra to drum up support for a bill to provide federal employees and vets access to medical cannabis.

2/
Republican @mattgaetz has won re-election to U.S. House in Florida's 1st congressional district.

Gaetz has become an outspoken pro-cannabis advocate, both in Congress, and in his home state of Florida.

So damned proud of the Sleeping Giants community today. This is democracy in action.

If voting has not closed in your area, please go do it. If it has and you’re still in line, please don’t leave until you vote.

Go SG! #electionday
