1/16 It has begun. The GOP is spinning that the sole transcript Trump says he will release is more important than the #WhistleblowerComplaint as a tactic to insist everything should ride on this one supposed piece of evidence.

#ImpeachTrump #ImpeachmentParty #UkraineTranscript
2/16 All reports indicate this was a months-long conspiracy Trump and Giuliani were engaged in, subverting & bypassing officials who tried to stop them.

A single call does not BEGIN to give an accurate depiction of the events that lead up to this. washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
3/16 And Trump already has a shady history with releasing information.

Forget the obvious like his tax returns, school grades, and secret meetings with Putin.

Actually, a reminder of those secret meetings:

Looking online at a lot of what identifies itself as ‘trans activism’ thru the prism of intimate partner abuse ( #coercivecontrol #suicidethreats #gaslighting #narcissism etc) things seem to me to fit a very familiar (& fundamentally womanhating) pattern.

Economic Abuse: making it hard for feminists and lesbians to speak out for fear of losing jobs.

This happens far too often. UK academia, charity sector, civil service... examples abound.

Using Male Privilege: where to start?

*having 1000’s of other males vilifying women who stand up 4 their sex-based rights, online & in print

*85% of T-I-M retain male genitalia. Their word goes

The sun has always been the best antidepressant. It is especially potent against (un)consciously (agitated-depressive) science-denying sun-, cosmic rays-, clouds- & ocean- (low-pass filter of the climate system because of their heat content) deniers in #IPCC.

This video by @shaun_jen is gaslighting. The left is using this to say that @CortesSteve @prageru video is disproved. Nope! Shaun uses straw man arguments, nonsequiters, & easily refuted assumptions re: all attendees were white supremacists to make points
1) @CortesSteve never said the media only lied . Cortes simply said they lied. There is a difference. Of course you can fine plenty of examples of msm showing the video. Its the reporting that's fake not the videos. This takes care of @shaun_jen 's first straw man argument.
2) @CortesSteve clearly said "and others" when listing examples of media that had perpetuated the so called #CharlottesvilleLie . He never said those media examples were the only ones & @shaun_jen knows this.
Thus another straw man arguments agains points Cortes was not making

"From time to time, we must carry out terrorist attacks in which uninvolved people die. This will steer the entire state & the entire population. The primary goal of such an attack is not the dead but the survivors, because they must be guided & influenced."

Labor Secy Acosta media presser is Trump’s test. Put him on TV and see if he can look good defending his sweetheart plea deal to child predator Jeffrey Epstein. Acosta is now blaming lenient Florida state prosecutors and contending HE was hard on Epstein. #agitprop #gaslighting
Labor Secy Acosta’s arrogance is astrounding. He didn’t apologize, blamed others, claimed he got Epstein jailed. “Our culture was different in 2008.” Really? About child sexual predators?? It’s just mind-blowing such SOBs are running our country. That’s the best Republicans have.

@KevinMKruse Thread - and here is Kevin Phillips in the New York Times reporting that Kevin Phillips proposed "Southern Strategy" of appealing to George Wallace racist/segregationist white Democrats WAS REJECTED by the Nixon campaign. The focused on the upper/outer South instead
nytimes.com/1970/05/17/arc…
The same article liberals often refer to as proving that Nixon & GOP applied "The Southern Strategy" (read: appeal to racism ) was explicitly rejected by Nixon/GOP leadership. Nixon focused on the periphery of the South not the Deep South.
@KevinMKruse also quotes William F. Buckley article but conveniently ignores Buckley explicitly distinguishing bw economic conservatives, liberals, & moderates within the Southern Democrats. They were only uniform on segregation, but differed greatly on economic & other issues

Gaslighting is psychological manipulation to make someone question their own memory, perception, and sanity.
The gaslighter aims to exert power and for the victim to be dependent on them.
The victim of #gaslighting becomes so disoriented, they start doubting their own reality.
The term first appeared in a 1938 British stageplay by Patrick Hamilton, called Gaslight, which was made into a film in 1940.
Here is the link to the film:
MGM bought the remake rights but insisted that all existing prints of this first film be destroyed,

To understand coercive control.
To REALLY understand it, you need to understand how manipulators work. The things they know they can do, to bring us to our knees.

#coercivecontrol
It goes without saying that the first thing they will control is HOW they present. The public at large will only ever see the
*nice* side.
#coercivecontrol
They take an interest in you.
An intense interest.
They especially want to know about anything in your past that has caused you pain, upset or trauma.
They do this by prematurely disclosing some traumatic episode in their life to fool you into trusting them.

The guy @realDonaldTrump just retweeted is a racist who suggested Obama is a secret Muslim
Uncle Jimbo’s egregious racism aside, Trump admitted during a nationally televised interview that he fired the FBI director because he didn’t like that the FBI was investigating his campaign.

If that’s not “proof of obstruction” then nothing is. #gaslighting
This is one of the dumbest tweets I’ve encountered

.@RepMarkMeadows begins CPAC with this rip-roarer: "You know, with this Green New Deal, they're trying to get rid of all the cows. But I've got good news -- Chick-fil-A stock will go way up because we gonna be eating more chicken!"
Meadows mischaracterizes Cohen's testimony, falsely says he said there's "no evidence of collusion" when in fact he just said he doesn't know of any.

These dudes are completely dishonest.
Mark Meadows does not have a future in comedy: "They may call you deplorable, but most people will call you adorable patriots, alright?

So I was traveling for work, and I happened to turn the hotel TV on Monday night. It was initially turned to Fox News 🙄 and just then the #TrumpRally in #ElPaso was on. I watched for a few minutes and happened to catch the following sequence...
#TrumpRallyElPaso
Trump decries "fake news" and specifically points out the press section.
#StochasticTerrorism
Minutes later, a Trump supporter in a #MAGA hat attacks a BBC journalist.
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
We are lucky this time that it wasn't worse. With things out there like "Day of the Brick," it's easy to predict that attacks on journalists will continue, and worsen.

🔥This week's episode of @BullCBS was a gaslighter to the max (pun intended)

- Marissa's husband cheated on her yrs ago
- Yrs later, when they remarried, he made certain promises to earn her trust again.

#RT - #Gaslighting - @Go_Carr_Go
2. @BullCBS - Gaslighter #Thread -

- He did not keep the promises he made
- He also lied about money & debt

But, when events of the story unfolded, she threw every moment of her time & reputation behind him & TAC threw their weight behind him too.

3. @BullCBS - Gaslighter #thread

She shared important information with her boss, which could affect the case. -- She had the obligation to inform her friends and her job what might be happening so they knew what might be found by the prosecution. She was honest!

Sanders starts crying while mentioning Trump's Jewish family members -- the implication being he can't be anti-Semitic if he has Jewish family
REPORTER: What does Trump mean when he says he might 'tone up' his rhetoric?

SANDERS: "He's found moments to bring our country together & focus on things that all of us can support & all of us can condemn."

R: But he keeps attacking the media

S: Well stop criticizing him then
