My father was part of the greatest generation. He was 17. A Marine. He only knew he was poor and needed the money. He learned later how important his service was. He taught me how dangerous fascism is. We must fight for freedom.

(1/21) The 2017-18 @HouseGOP had plenty of indictments, #GOPCorruption, and ethical breaches (see my 21-tweet-thread: ). Now meet House GOP freshmen being sworn in on 1/3/19. With their baggage, they'll fit right in.

(2/21) Ross Spano @RossSpano #FL15
In a clear violation of @FEC campaign finance regs, Spano funded his campaign with large, unreported loans from personal friends. Given the amt & his relatively narrow win margin, it's shocking he is even being seated. (tampabay.com/florida-politi…)
(3/21) Anthony Gonzalez @anthonygonzalez #OH16
In another flouting of @FEC regulations, Gonzalez faced scrutiny for apparently (and illegally) colluding with a supportive Super PAC that was funded solely by - wait for it - Gonzalez's father! (washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/christ…)

Where has Patriotism gone? Who in the @GOP still believe in Laws & Order? Their Patriotism has fallen and left way for Nationalism. "Nationalism is the Opposite of Patriotism" was uttered by another leader, Macron. His words couldn't be more true.
It's NOT patriotic to dodge the draft & mock war hero's or their families.
It's NOT patriotic to dodge paying taxes, while the rest of America has to pay.
It's NOT patriotic to admire & cultivate relationships w/dictators & yes MURDERS!
It's NOT patriotic to discriminate against people SERVING in the military or even keeping disabled veterans from their entitlements.
It's NOT patriotic to be in company w/Manafort for ANY time when he is bed w/Russian oligarchs.
It's NOT patriotic to use $ meant for a champain

On Monday, in a memo published to the FCC website, chair Ajit Pai admitted “half-million comments” on net neutrality were “submitted from Russian e-mail addresses.” Pai had earlier denied Russian involvement. @theweeklylist.org
The memo also indicated thatover half of the almost 22 million comments came from phony, temporary, or duplicate email addresses, and reportedly only 17.4% of the comments were unique.
Pai also rejected two Freedom of Information Act requests filed byNYT and BuzzFeed, seeking “IP addresses” and “server logs,” respectively, associated with public comments submitted on net neutrality. @theweeklylist.org

A mega-thread on why you must #VoteBlueToSaveAmericanDemocracy
Midterm Elections are always a referendum on the job #POtuS is doing
So unless you are one of the willfully ignorant or only watch #FoxRussia
You must Vote for @TheDemocrats
Democrats are a "big tent" group & often our different passions conflict but we have NO room for that this year
Let's start with what America stands for-
As a democratic republic-we elect people to Congress who represent US
Did @GOP just do that with Kavanaugh confirmation?
Or did we see the raw abuse of power of #GOPCorruption where a minority of old white men not only flouted the Rule of Law & squelched @FBI from it's mission but rammed him through despite the fervent opposition of the overwhelming majority of US?

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies #CultureOfCorruption #Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
30,100: North Dakotans that would have lost health coverage by 2026 under the #GOP House-passed #Trumpcare bill./3 #ProtectOurCare #CultureOfCorruption #GOPGreed

@GOP The “verdict of democracy” can never be authoritarianism, whether fascism-lite, statist autocracy or some variant, w/ blends of kakistocracy & kleptocracy.

GOP is responsible for the rise of autocracy (allowing Trump to be nominated) & complicit in it’s continuance (passivity).
@GOP The #NeverTrump movement, #realcons refusing to allow 🇺🇸 to slip into dictatorship is just as real.

By caricaturizing some Americans’ dissent & “resistance” as unhealthy or antithetical to democracy, you’ve become an enemy to democracy,

& you’ve become complicit in 🇺🇸 decay
@GOP And 🇺🇸 WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU for allowing democratic institutions to decay & unravel

JC “You can smell the #GOPCorruption from the growing insider trading scandal a mile from the Potomac.

Word on the street is that up to a dozen Republican members of Congress will be implicated, w/ HUGE implications for the midterm elections.”

It’s Time for Trump Voters to Face the Bitter Truth

Pisarsky was Butina’s point of contact for the Nikolaev money, the face of the financing. He essentially acted like he was distributing grant money.

Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone🤗

GOP elected a potus who promised to drain the swamp instead, Timp has presided over extraordinary levels of utter corruption putting policies, access & influence up for sale to the highest bidder.

FFS! Goodlatte set to issue Steele dossier subpoenas 🙄

CT: “Trump (and some adult family) negotiated a deal with the Saudis and the Emiratis for 3.6 billion to get rid of Iran nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions. The payment was made in two installments. The first last year and the second earlier in 2018”

"Trump has seethed to confidants that he views the Manafort charges as “a warning shot” from Mueller. He has told those close to him that as he watches the courtroom proceedings, he fears that Donald Trump Jr. could at some point be the one on trial"

This Republican control over all parts of our government defies comparison. On second thought, it feels like a Biblical punishment..Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?
#RepublicanPlague #CrimesAgainstHumanity #RiseUp
First, the waters of the land of Egypt were to be turned into blood....
The Clean Water Rule protected smaller bodies of water, like streams and wetlands, from discharges of all kinds of pollutants. But not anymore: #RepublicanPlague #CleanWaterAct
The EPA has delayed implementation for 2 years as the agency “clarifies” (read: eliminates)the rule.The decision is a clear gift to industrial polluters who loudly protested the reg in 2015 & GOP lawmakers who have falsely claimed the rule regulates “puddles on private property.” Large freighter ship spilled red and yellow toxic sludge into waterway. People in small boats float on the spill.

6 Months After GOP Tax Scam for the Rich, House Republicans Target Americans With Pre-Existing Conditions/1
#ProtectOurCare #PreExistingConditions #GOPTaxScam
6 months ago, House Republicans passed their Tax Scam for the rich, which ransacked the future of our children to hand massive handouts to big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent./2 #GOPTaxScam #GOPCorruption #GOPGreed
Now, the GOP’s true cynicism is on full display, as Republicans are using the tax scam’s attacks on key ACA provisions to justify a lawsuit to destroy protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions./3 #ProtectOurCare #PreExistingConditions #GOPTaxScam
