🌎After years of deleterious moves to outright harm the environment, why did Rick Scott take action and on July 9th and declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of blue-green algae blooms? 3 Reasons. Money, politics & urgency/necessity.

tampabay.com/news/business/…
👉These 7 counties were affected by the blue-green algae blooms: Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Okeechobee.
⁉️And then on August 13, 2018, why did Rick Scott declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of “red tide” in the following counties: Charlotte, Collier, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota? (Lucky Lee County! Red + Green = Grey—Brown)

A short thread.

Is Devin Nunes responsible for covering up election interference in 2016?

Nunes, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, has fought at every turn against allowing a thorough Benghazi-style investigation into interference in the 2016 election.
First of all, Nunes has limited the scope of the investigation and shut down hearings before they even got started.

“Nunes also led Republicans in the effort to fight the legitimacy of the investigation itself.”

#ElectionInterference

Enter the nonsensical deep state theory.

Devin Nunes has scrapped to redirect the investigation into Trump and the 2016 election, and instead questioned the motives and behavior of the investigators themselves, blaming the FBI.

@MarkPocan, here in Kenosha, WI: “Randy Bryce knows how important it is to protect your Medicare and Social Security. You’ve paid into it your entire life.” Mitch McConnell made this a central issue in the midterms. His party will pay for it, and his plans will fail.
Pocan laying out the case against Bryan Steil. “There are already 211 or 212 lawyers in Congress. Do you think sending a 213th—a corporate lawyer, who worked for outsourcers—is going to shake things up in Washington?”
“My opponent doesn’t know what it’s like to suffer. What it’s like to scramble to get by. My opponent keeps putting profits over people.” – @IronStache, cancer survivor, vet, ironworker, and the guy who’ll shake the country by replacing Paul Ryan & defeating his protege

Trump's deputy campaign chair Rick Gates solicited proposals (#felony) from Israeli firm Psy Group to create fake online personas, use social media manipulation & gather intel to help defeat @GOP primary opponents (@tedcruz) & @HillaryClinton🤨1/
nytimes.com/2018/10/08/us/…
Gates wasn't interested in Psy Group b/c other Trump aides oversaw social media. George Nader & Joel Zamel (Psy Group owner) met w/Don Jr & offered to help *THROW THE ELECTION* at an Aug'16 meeting arranged by Erik Prince‼️

Nader is COOPERATING.😎 2/

George Birnbaum (Arthur Finkelstein protégé/@GOP consultant who worked for Netanyahu & other Israeli officials) initially pitched Gates on using social media influence/manipulation to sway @GOP delegates toward Trump.🤨 3/

🔥Internal @GOP poll shows Democrats up by 9 points on a generic ballot (7 pts = #FlipTheHouse). “Soft" GOP voters care more about Medicare/SS, veterans mental health services + reforming student loans than Trump agenda of tax cuts, border walls, ICE.😉

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
🤣LOL. @realDonaldTrump’s GASLIGHTING worked a bit too well.

Complacency among #GOP voters is tied directly to their trust in Trump. “They don’t believe Democrats will win the House. (Why should they believe the same pollsters who told them Hillary was going to be elected?)”🤣
This #poll shouldn’t make *any* of us complacent, but instead, should MOTIVATE us, b/c we now *know* that We the People *can* flip seats in DEEPLY red states (@DougJones in #AL) and districts (@ConorLambPA).

VOTE, so that we do this NATIONWIDE‼️🇺🇸

First, Jeff Sessions called us "dirty immigration lawyers." Now, he says we are like "water seeping through an earthen dam" [to get around the law.]

I just had to break this down.

cnn.com/2018/09/10/pol…
Sessions is the Attorney General of the United States, but he thinks "good lawyers" doing their jobs are somehow an affront to the rule of law.

Only if you define the law as requiring deportation, Jeff. The AG of the US should know better. Much better.
According to Jeff, accountants who tell their clients to take a lawful tax deduction, or defense lawyers who win acquittals are also shameful "water seepers."

Apparently, Jeff's notion of good lawyering has been colored by the likes of Michael Cohen and Rudy Giuliani.

SCANDAL #8
⚡️In 2014, 75% of Floridians voted OVERWHELMINGLY to pass Amendment 1, AKA the FL Water & Land Conservation Initiative, a state constitutional amendment to allot a projected $21 billion over the 20 years of the measure to buy & preserve land. They approved this:
▶️75% of the voters is 4.2 million people.
▶️When 75% of #Florida voters voted to approve Amendment 1 to the Florida Constitution, they approved "the largest land conservation measure ever approved in a single state."
ℹ️The exact amount of money is “projected” because—according to the amendment that was passed—it was to come from 33% of Florida’s existing excise tax. An Excise tax is a “documentary stamp tax” paid when real estate is sold, typically 70 cents per $100 paid for the property.

🧷National Enquirer's Safe Held Damaging Trump Stories

cnbc.com/2018/08/23/nat…
🧐I never really thought about this before, but the celebrities who are often humiliated (or an attempt at least) are usually liberal Democrats who speak out about politics.

🖼️Even this cover here: Katie Holmes, Rosie O'Donnell, Oprah Winfrey...
💥Cher gets killed by the National Enquirer...Barbra Streisand...George Clooney, Meg Ryan, Alec Baldwin!

🧐Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Ellen DeGenerous, Angelina Jolie, Melanie Griffith, etc.

👉Just naming a few...all Democrats, most liberal and outspoken. No pictures needed.

🏔️This tells you everything you need to know about U.S. Senator Jon Tester from #Montana: he made history as being the first member of Congress who posted his daily schedule online.
⚡️Here's Tester's latest public schedule:

tester.senate.gov/?p=schedule
🚜But in case you need to know a little more, he is part of the third generation from his family who have resided in Montana & has shown that he will protect the state from interlopers. The top “issue” on his campaign website is “fighting for veterans.”

Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) stands up for veterans. He is passionate about several issues, but helping veterans is definitely a priority.

🎖️Just one small example: when he stood up on the Senate floor and made this speech about Vietnam veterans and how they should have all the same benefits as vets from other wars.
💗Donnelly's very first bill—the bipartisan Jacob Sexton Military Suicide Prevention Act—was a labor of love. Jacob was from Indiana and a National Guard member who tragically took his own life in 2009.

Vermont is great. I get to see my rep @PeterWelch at the dump quite often. Today we discussed migrant children crisis over the recycling. Welch reminded me unless we #flipthehouse we can’t pass @senmerkley S3084 or @dwstweets and @repbass bills on investigating detention centers
Welch listened to my Pediatric ICU experience on how we carefully weighed each child and double checked drug calculations with a 2nd RN before administration of meds to babies/kids. And that we had a detailed medical history, allergies, conditions and monitored for side effects.
Welch visited the detention centers in Texas with his friend @SenMerkley and was also forbidden was access. This horror will continue unless we keep yelling about it and making it impossible for members to continue on in peace. Are your senators cosponsors of S 3084 and S 2849?

In all my years fighting for repro health, this is one of the most idiotic attacks I've seen. Women have the RIGHT to choose & to counsel that helps them make informed choices. @PPFA clinics are community pillars that serve ppl all across this country. 1/ npr.org/sections/healt…
42% of what @PPFA does is STI testing & treatment. Now, I can understand the confusion for @realdonaldtrump when allegedly he doesn’t know the difference between HPV & HIV. We know that facts & figures go over his head. 2/
.@VP may actually understand facts & figures, so here's something to think about: In IN, STI #'s skyrocketed when he withdrew funding from @PPFA. This admin isn't only waging war on women, but anyone who is different - especially those in poverty & it’s absolutely disgusting. 3/
