Last year, the founder of the Neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer, Andrew Anglin, wrote an article titled 'Hero Steve King Calls for White Racial Supremacy in America' based on your own tweet.

Anglin was an active user of Gab, as was the Pittsburgh murderer Robert Bowers.

#Facts
ICYMI, watch the video of @SteveKingIA blowing up at a journalist's questions today.

Steve may not like it, but facts are stubborn things.
@SteveKingIA ----Fair warning if you've never seen The Daily Stormer content. Their stuff is extremely racist, vile and definitely NSFW.----

But so you know it's real, here's the Daily Stormer article Andrew Anglin wrote about Steve King. h/t @Grzabjj

As we swing into the season where undergraduate seniors are thinking hard about what to do next, here are some reasons to become a Master of Science.

mcewanlab.org/2017/01/06/som…

...and that process absolutely can, and should, come with a full tuition waiver and stipend!
By the way, I didn't really focus on this, but having a PhD really can make you overqualified for some jobs. I have seen clear examples of this. I am not saying it's right, okay? I am just saying it is real. So some notion of "do a PhD then get a "regular" job" might not work
In contrast, having a MS is almost always a plus. A MS can make you stand out amongst a stack of BS qualified people in a positive way, whereas having a PhD in the same stack gets your resume directed to the shredder by the wtf.baffled HR person. #facts.

For MAGAts spouting "most domestic terrorists are liberals" bullshit: I'm gonna hit you with some #FACTS. The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) includes systematic data on terrorist events around the world from 1970 through 2017. It includes domestic, transnational and... 1/7
international terrorist incidents. The GTD is →THE MOST← comprehensive unclassified database on terrorist attacks in the world, covering more than 180,000 cases. It includes the date & incident location, weapons used, nature of the target, number of casualties, and when... 2/7
identifiable; the group or individual responsible. According to the GTD; globally, terrorist attacks dropped from about 17,000 in 2014 to 11,000 in 2017, including a 40% DECLINE in the MIDDLE EAST, but the U.S. had a surge of terror-related violence in 2017 with 65 attacks. 3/7

😆🤣😂I died when @DawnMGibson said that some sleep hygiene tips are muggle advice! #ACR18 #Painsomnia
"Magical beings such as myself don't always do well with that." #ACR18 #SpoonieChat #Facts
I much prefer the idea of a sleep PLAN. You don't hear people talking about our #painsomnia struggle outside of giving the standard advice that doesn't work for is. #ACR18

I know this is shocking, but this is not true.

The amateur geneticists of the right seized on the wrong fraction.

Warren's test actually showed she is 25/7190, or .35% Native, which is twice as much as the average white person, per a 2014 study.
The 1/1024 was the lowball estimate of which ancestor in her tree may have been Native American.

But you inherit random amounts of DNA from your ancestors, so that's not the same as "how Native" her DNA was. The actual amount of Native DNA found was 25 cM, or .35% of the total.
Your genealogical tree, the one made up of *all* your ancestors, is not the same as your genetic tree, the one made up of the ancestors you inherited DNA from.

The Cherokee nation's response is a separate issue. But I'm the daughter of a mathematician, so...#facts.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

I see we've reached the "why didn't she tell an adult at the time" stage of the GOP response to #ChristineBlaseyFord - SIGH. Gather round & let's have a chat with some historical context to this convo.
I am 10 yrs younger than Ford & Kavanaugh - the first prominent study on the phenomenon called "Date Rape" was conducted in 1987... when I went to HS in the 90's "Date Rape" MOST people didn't consider it a true crime. #facts
Add to that the pure fact that sigmas & consequences of having BEEN raped are HORRIBLE NOW - they were down right unfathomable in the 80's & 90's. So no - a teenager that was just assaulted in a "date" scenario in the 80's would not have told an adult.

(1) Thread: Merrimack Valley gas line explosions and fires.

There's a lot of panic and misinformation being reported. I'm getting my info from @MassStatePolice & the state fire marshal.

NBC Boston live coverage: nbcboston.com/news/local/Mul…
(2) From the above story. Authorities are not asking residents to turn off their home's gas supply, they are just saying get out of the building asap.

Importantly, using a cell phone can ignite gas if it's built up in the room.

(1) The only time Democrats care about the US citizens of Puerto Rico is when they can make political hay out of them.

At all other times they ignore the territory & it's extreme poverty, economic dependency, & rampant political corruption.

Hurricane Maria deaths estimate.
(2) Watching hurricanes #Katrina & #Harvey from afar was an experience that radicalized me to become a Hurricane Watcher, focusing on storms affecting the US. Harvey had the potential to be another Katrina. Thanks to sterling work at all levels, Katrina-level tragedy was averted.
(3) The fact is, #Harvey, #Irma, & #Maria were handled well by local, state/territory, & federal government. Far Left Democrats FEEL that Maria wasn't, but Far Left Democrats feel a lot of things, especially since the #TDS pandemic outbreak on 11/8/16.

(1) Atlantic Hurricane Season 2018 was slow to start but is in full swing now.

#Florence is expected to become a #hurricane today, & gain strength before landfall in ?NC ?VA

#Isaac, #Helene & two depressions also present.

Time to get ready.gov ⛈️🌪️🌀
(2) At the start, #Florence looked like she would swing around past the Eastern USA, then she changed direction. 😦
(3) Both #Helene and #Isaac are expected to become hurricanes. 😒

Aujourd’hui j’ai du temps entre deux fit de données pour vous parler du merveilleux conte de fée du 100% renouvelable.
Attention, on va être méthodique : des chiffres, des sources, des comparaisons, vous allez être servis ! #Facts
Ceux souvent qui prônent le 100% EnR sont ceux qui disent que l’atome, c’est comme le carbone : c’est Satan personnifié. Et souvent, ils veulent le remplacer par le solaire (PV) et l’éolien (EO).
Moi, un 100% EnR, si ça marche tout en gardant notre mode de vie actuel, je signe et on y va tous ensemble gaiement. Franchement, personne de sensé ne serait contre !

(1) I noticed this headline in a tweet by some conspiracy fantasist who asserts that every death of a public figure is an illuminati-Rothschild-NWO murder.

They're less "exciting," but the relevant #facts of the case are highlighted below.

(2) It never seems to matter what caused a death; if any aspect of it can be related back to politics, the credulous will try to do it.

Protip: Cyclist vs heavy vehicle = Heavy vehicle always wins.

Another one-time doctor to a world leader was killed while cycling recently.
(3) The former cardiologist of Bush Sr was murdered in Houston by the son of a woman who died 20 years earlier while undergoing surgery. The murderer held a grudge for that long.

These two tragic Dr-on-bike deaths have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

Phillip Paulwell is weaponising misinformation. The facts are the Simpson-Miller administration only used 52% of the SCT they imposed in 2015 on an oil hedge which covered only 1/3 of oil imports over the period and expired worthless. #Facts
Reasonable minds can disagree on policy but don’t play with the facts. They are pretending as if ALL of the SCT they raised in 2015 was spent on an oil hedge. Here are the facts:
The PNP and Paulwell are also pretending as if the oil hedge in 2015 covered ALL oil imports. Here are the #Facts:

Who would have thunk!
British hauliers will need licenses and permits to be able to drive on European roads. In a no deal scenario there will be no way of getting UK goods into Europe!
Yup! This is not #Scaremongering but #facts
#BrexitMadness
The market access for British hauliers under a No deal scenario will only cover 3% of the needs.
#BrexitMadness #Transport
Check this thread where two experts on trade discuss the problem:
Take a look again at the situation on the Border with Turkey: Trucks driving into EU will need permit from every country they need to pass!

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?

The last time I received a slap that sound, I was in SS2. It was mum.

This time my Slapper was 3. She was my patient. I was trying to examine her 'area'.

I looked up in shock, then I met her eyes. I shivered. One act of abuse had scarred yet another.😢

How? THREAD!👇
#DrZobo
A typical clinic day.
In walked She, mum and aunt.
Her Shiny black skin and full natural hair caught my eye.
She was 3.
Didn't look sick at all.

"Hey there happy Girl,Welcome, What brings you to the clinic today?", I started with a smile. One that soon turned sour👇
#DrZobo.
What she said hit me and suddenly made me reach for my Zobo bottle.
All that Glucose would come in handy.

"Come again please", I said

"E rapeuru ya yesterday" (She was raped yesterday)

Silence.
I looked at the Barbie.

"Who did that Ma'am?"

"My neighbour's son"

Fayose's decision to borrow 56 billion with a fresh application of another N25 billion in 2017, without any significant socio-economic impact puts @GovAyoFayose's understanding of governance & economics in question. And also confirms his lack of transparency. /1

#Fayose @Ayourb
With low jobs growth, no wage growth, no industrial development, no investment in agric & no socio-economic plan, where does future govt revenue come from? @GovAyoFayose has presided over the worst govt ever to drive up #Ekiti State's debt without a plan to fix the economy. /2
Contrary to the lies by @OlayinkaLere & @GovAyoFayose, the first 30billion in this chart is an accumulation of accrued debt b4 & during @kfayemi's tenure. He ensured that 14.5b was paid out of the 25b loan before he left office. By Oct 2014, #Ekiti debt profile was 10.5b. /3

LOOKING FOR LOST HEIRS
by Pastor Bertrand L. Comparet,A.B., J.D.

Have you ever stopped to question the intense hatred there is in the world for #white #Christians?
"The written intention of our heavenly Father #Yahweh is expressed in His prayer when we pray, Thy will be done on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.
"In keeping with this, is #Yahshua's [Jesus'] statement that #Yahweh's servants have been on earth for thousands of years.

Here's important context: ICE has admitted to classifying people as MS-13 without any evidence they're actually in the gang, as a way of ensuring they don't get bond during immigration proceedings
We talked about Operation Matador and ICE's overzealous gang designations back in Episode 38 of @fsckemall:
