For over two years, lunatics have accused @realDonaldTrump of #treason based on their #collusiondelusion.

Did it matter to any of them that the #Constitution precisely defines what is, and what is not, treason?
Did it matter to any of them that, in the absence of a #declarationofwar, that Trump accepting nonfinancial assistance -- opposition research on the odious and loathsome @HillaryClinton -- could NEVER be #treason.
Whether it would reflect sound political judgment to accept such aid is a decision best made at the ballot box, but we don't twist and distort the clear lines set out in the #Constitution as part of a coastal hissy fit over an unexpected election outcome.

With the resurgence of the mad boys and girls in red berets and red overalls it looks like all the inroads we had made upto now towards a #TwoPartyState is starting to be eroded.
#SADecides2019
The Radicals in @EFFSouthAfrica and the Nationalists in @VFPlus (both with 68 seats) gained much ground here plus the accumulated votes of the Mickey Mouse Parties (18 seats) didn't do any good to the beloved @Our_DA losing in total 88 seats combined.
SAD 😔!
Also exposed was the fact that we are not as such an equal society as we thought we are
The @IECSouthAfrica #ElectionNight Map shows how divided our society still is with @Our_DA more prevalent in colored communities as whilst @MYANC strong as expected in predominantly BlackAreas

While there were some upsetting results yesterday, make no mistake: US democracy won.

Even in states that went with Trump, seeds of a more-representative democracy were planted and will bear fruit in the next 2-4 years. #ElectionNight
Though results were somewhat clouded by the unrepresentative Senate, by solid popular majorities, the country clearly rejected Trumpism.
You shouldn't.

Beto hurts. Florida sucks. Kemp's a crook.

But look across the country: solid victories everywhere.

1.4 million got their right to vote back in FL. Medicaid was expanded in four states. Anti-gerrymandering measures passed everywhere.

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

2/ One source of Democratic optimism: single-digit victories this year for a handful of Republican incumbents who swept into office by double digits in 2014.

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

Beto O’Rourke didn’t quite topple Ted Cruz, but he carried Democrats to victory in battlegrounds suburbs. trib.it/1Ch

So Adrian Fontes (D) the appointed Maricopa County Recorder has decided to pull all of the "data packs" from the polling stations in MC to bring them in to a central location for tabulation, vs doing it in each polling station.
#WhatCouldGoWrong
So now over a Million Votes from the largest county in the state, by FAR, we're told might be tabulated by tomorrow or the next day. Mind you, other races in Maricopa County have been called, other Statewide races have been called, but not the Senate Race. Isn't that curious?
Local News is calling this bizarre and unprecedented. They're all confused as to why these votes haven't been counted when the polls closed 4 hours ago. I can attest, this hasn't happened before. I've been here 25 years. #WhatsGoingOn

🇺🇸1. One night sitting in my car tweeting, I heard a man loudly speaking about Trump, I sighed and thought it was another triggered lib but he got louder “He is our President! He fights for us!” shocked, I turned to see who it was and there was @Johnny_Congress #electionnight
2. He was taping up his signs in the middle of liberalville whilst red-pilling a constituent on his Bluetooth. I was thrilled to see him and ran to give him a hug. See, a few weeks earlier I’d met him outside of a grocery store, all smiles, all about America #ElectionNight
3. @Johnny_Congress worked all day and at night or time off he campaigned, he loves our district and was gutted to see how many homeless we had. Once I posted a video of a homeless camp and he went down to talk to them #ElectionNight

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...

IF DEMS WIN THE HOUSE...

IT'S A POLITICAL EARTHQUAKE.

IT MEANS OUR DEMOCRACY IS ALIVE.

IT GIVES HOPE TO MILLIONS.

IT GIVES COURAGE TO MILLIONS.

#ElectionNight
DON'T UNDERESTIMATE TONIGHT. There were going to be disappointments on #ElectionNight, big ones. And there have been. But if Dems had lost the House, it would have been an absolutely CRUSHING blow. Don't let pundits downplay the tremendous energy this will give blue America.
