Local #Atlanta Interfaith Clergy holds a Press Conference to demand Mayor Andre Dickens #StopCopCity. The #ATL police are stating "outside agitators" are against this $90M project but that is a lie. Local residents of #ATL "do not want Cop City."
🧵 We heard the Interfaith Clergy loud and clear: "We don't want more policing and terrorizing of Black, Brown, and Indigenous bodies in our community." #StopCopCity
✊"All of this is a fight over land, which white people have been wagging since the beginning of time." #Landback #StopCopCity #Solidarity

Friday night's tweet chain has to do with one of ET's favorite topics - campaign finance, especially with the #GA runoff on the horizon. Some of you may recall the Citizens United v. FEC decision in 2010. Well, it's now backfiring badly on the GOP. Why, you may ask? (1/x)
Although the GOP has been able to raise obscene sums of money and funnel them into their super PACs courtesy of Citizens United, Dems have caught up in a big way in large part due to shifting demographics. Money talks and the way it flows has changed since 2010. (2/x)
Now that Dems rely far more on suburban voters, the latter's disposable incomes funnel individual campaigns rather than how the GOP does it with their super PACs. Some GOP candidates are great individual fundraisers, but not enough of them do so on the level of Dems. (3/x)

💥MUST WATCH: tomorrow before the @January6thCmte: ex-Southern District of #Georgia US Attorney BJay Pak.

Pak was *forced out* by Trump for “refusing to parrot baseless voter fraud claims in #Georgia.”

But Lordy, there are TAPES.😎

On a 1/2/20 call when Trump pressured GOP @GaSecofState Brad Raffensperger to “find” 11,780 votes, Trump referred to Pak as a “never-Trumper.”

Lordy, there are TAPES.😎
Pak resigned and just 2 days after Trump’s call to #Raffensberger when he attempted to throw a fair election), Trump replaced Pak by “order of the president, with U.S. Attorney Bobby Christine who also subsequently **resigned within less than a month**.…

Friends and Family,
If you are going to share stories, memes, thoughts on Georgia’s recently adopted voting law changes, including criticism of critics, I ask that you do a little research and you give a little thought before doing it. /1 #voting #GA #votingrights #racism
There are provisions of the Georgia law that do make permanent certain changes there that were implemented in response by COVID.  Every state should implement those elements.  /2
And if it were actually about voter ID then that issue has been fully vetted and addressed by the Courts regarding what is appropriate and constitutional. /3

“[Trump] Went Down to #Georgia

🎵A #GARunoff Musical Thread 🧵

(with music inspired by Charlie Daniels’ classic #GA fiddle song )

(1/11) 👇
[Trump] went down to Georgia
He was lookin' for a [vote] to steal
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
And he was willin' to make a deal
When he came across this [woman]
[Makin' democracy] hot
And [Trump] jumped upon a hickory stump
And said,"[Girl], let me tell you what"(2) Image
"I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a [politician], too
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
Now you [make democracy good], [girl], but give the Devil his due
I'll bet [an election] of gold against your soul
'Cause I think I'm better than you"

As I work on threading the 2020 #DemPartyPlatform for Twitter users, I often think about how the republicans this year did not meet (even virtually),hash out,debate or draft a 2020 platform of their own.What kind of major political party chooses this path? #GOPBetrayedAmerica
What does this say about the
Republican Party of today? Are they unorganized? Unmotivated? Unable to come to consensus? Unsure? Useless? Corrupt? Sycophantic? Why don’t we ask @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell? He’s been sorta quiet on the matter. #GOPBetrayedAmerica
A Platform is an essential document;a blueprint that envelops & embraces the party’s values,principles, plans, proposals & priorities. All we know about 2020 Republicans: they completely support the 45th president & his agenda even tho he has been impeached & removed by voters.

Voter fraud was used in the 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, & 2020 elections. We saw “found” ballots for one candidate in non-approved locations. We saw unexplained data anomalies. Evidence was substantial, but no investigations?! Time to end this... #MerryChristmas #Thread
#Election2020 Massive Voter Fraud & Election Fraud Orchestrated by Democrats & Conspirators, with Cover-Up Co-Conspirators in Media & Social Media platforms. This means #RICO , #Coup , #Sedition , & #Treason.
When you have this many election officials crying foul, data scientists crying foul over voting system data, voter crying foul over votes cast fraudulently in their name, dead voters, senile nursing home residents targeted, & people hiding machines & evidence, it is malevolent.

1/ Ranking Minority Brady is supposedly meeting w/ W&M chair Neal in the am as a "Grand Bargain" is perhaps coming together after pressure from @SpeakerPelosi on #SMB--w/ no legislative language socialized 2 anyone in the doc community--2 of 4 corners in Senate remain opposed.
2/ Let's bolster the oppo w/ the simple message that we don't sign off on deals where there's no language + how about the bills that physicians passed in #NY #TX & #GA tens of millions of Pts are out of the middle due to physician lead bills--don't suggest "we're the party of no"
