Questions to all @SenateGOP :
• Is your allegiance to #Constitution and the #OathOfOffice you swore?
• Do you value the integrity of the #Senate and the future of #America as a free republic?
• Or have you forsaken all in the name of power, money, and partisan politics?
@SenateGOP .@SenateGOP :
You've read history.
You know #America was founded by those who sought and fought for #Freedom from monarchical rule.
The #Framers gave us the #Constitution to guide and protect us from any who would attempt to re-assert any such rule.
@SenateGOP . @SenateGOP
That is why our #Constitution begins with the words #WeThePeople, not supreme leader or king or queen.
#America is government
• of the people
• by the people
• for the people
You were entrusted with the good of the people who elected you.

Extreme polarization in politics & life in general, a sense of community is what's needed.
The seemingly never ending scandals of the Catholic church, the fleecing by Megachurches, & attacks on Temples + Mosques contribute to our current climate of hate & institutional mistrust.
If ANY religion behaves like a business perhaps they should be taxed like a business.
I was born & raised Catholic, am an atty, & I love, no, I revere our Constitution.
Our 1st Amendment was written in part, as a remedy to the (perceived or true) digressions of est. religions.
The behavior, in this case, of the Catholic church would've horrified our founders.
Scientology, which is an alleged de facto cult, forbidding ppl to leave, using ppl as slaves, & ignoring reports of it's own sexual assault problems, IMO, shouldn't be allowed to so act TAX FREE!

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

Delighted to be in New York for the launch of #Trialwatch with brilliant @BarHumanRights colleagues @stephencragg1 & @SamuelZimran. BHRC conducts independent trial monitoring across many countries & we value the spotlight brought by trial observations.

Do say hi if you are here!
After a touch of stardust, the #Trialwatch panel has kicked off with a heavyweight #JournalismShouldNotBeACrime panel @MFFahmy11 @cdeloire @jrezaian @JameelJaffer @mariaressa chaired by Helena Kennedy QC. Chilling to hear experiences of journalists imprisoned. Why are they there?
As @MFFahmy11 talks about watching the world from the cage in the Egyptian courtroom, wondering whether the world is watching, a reminder why trial monitoring is so important. @BarHumanRights has monitored trials in Egypt and has raised concerns too on #fairtrials #cages.

EU Court’s Adv-Gen opinion on #Poland #FairTrial case is out. Thread to follow curia.europa.eu/juris/document…
Irish High Court was asked by Polish Gov to extradite Mr Celmer under EU law for trial on drug charges. Irish judge ruled Poland’s Gov has seriously undermined rule of law by taking political control over judges (agreeing with Euro Commission) 2/
So Irish Court asked Court of Justice of EU to rule on # approach Irish Court should take. AG opinion is advice to CJEU on how CJEU should rule. Mostly CJEU takes that advice, but not always. 3/
