The price of gasoline is not a function of "values." It's a function of unrestrained currency printing by the Fed and fiscal recklessness combined with a profound failure to invest in new oil production. Unless bad policies and worse decisions are "values." #GaslitNation

Nearly 2 years ago, on 31st Jan 2020, there was a dinner at Brown’s Hotel in London, organised by Telegraph columnist Allison Pearson. The assembled guests were jokingly labelled as The Brexit Batallion.

When I first heard about this I was intrigued to see who had been invited. Some of the names we’re familiar to me, but many of them were not. I’ve been meaning to look into this for some time. Now I have. Let me share with you what I’ve found out. #GaslitNation ImageImage
As that Orwell bloke pointed out, if you want to control a population, it helps to control the narrative. If all we see & hear, from multiple sources, is the same information, then it can only reinforce the feeling that “it must be right” & a majority will go along with it.

Thread: Listening to the new episode of @GaslitNation, "The Purge, Accelerated."

"Their goal is not to govern, but to rule."
"They are going to try to leave all of these institutions, these departments, as bereft of oversight and actual people in there [doing] something to serve the American public as possible. Because that is how they maintain their power." - @sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
"Imagine that all of us today have returned from a time machine from the future, and we see what it's like if we do not get Georgia... I cannot tell you what a different future this country and the world will have if we can get Ossoff and Warnock." - @AndreaChalupa

Thread: Listening to the new episode of @GaslitNation, "The Breitbart Senate."

"What we've seen so far is the Trump administration attempting a coup and failing... There is still plenty left in the Trump Crime Cult playbook... Murphy has conceded, but Trump still hasn't."
"There are a number of ways Trump and his crime cult could continue their attempted coup..." Litigation, SCOTUS, violence, bureaucratic obstruction, creating a national emergency as a pretext to the military. @sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
"What would actually unite the U.S. is an end to elite criminal impunity. For 4 decades, we have not only seen the same crimes carried out but the same criminals committing or enabling them. Manafort, Stone, Barr, the Trump & Kushner families" etc - @sarahkendzior @gaslitnation

I just finished reading* @SethAbramson's #proofofcollusion and conclusion of the book, looking forward, predicts a far more optimistic future than the one we are actually living in now.
He concludes that Trump will surely be impeached if the Democrats win the house and that at some point he will fall spectacularly from Grace when Mueller finishes his probe, because duh, this is America and we have laws here.
And while he recognizes the damage that the Trump presidency will have (has already had) on our country, his future projection is ultimately that of "surely, we will survive this intact"

Sarah Kendzior: It's good to see representatives who are actually doing their jobs, trying to protect the American public from a corrupt president.

@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation Sarah Kendzior: Justin Amash has voted independently of the GOP on several occasions. I think he's voting his conscience.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation Sarah Kendzior: I have a constitutional legal expert on deck so I can ask him my legal questions b/c Pelosi lies. Every citizen should have the right to know how the impeachment process works.

Sarah Kendzior: I'm waiting to see how the Julian Assange thing plays out...the indictment was for hacking; it would be a stretch to call him a journalist or even a publisher.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: I'm not sympathetic to Assange who has been accused of rape, who has allegedly tampered with the election, has dealings with white nationalists around the world...My concern is this indictment happened under Trump.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Assange is going to be used by the Trump admin in some way; he's always been a useful tool to them.

Sarah Kendzior: I warned everyone this is what would happen with Barr & the Mueller Report. The memo he wrote condemning the Mueller Report--before the report was released--was essentially his audition for Atty Gen'l.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: All Mueller did was enable Flynn and others who are extremely dangerous get off scot free.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: A lot of people staked their hopes on Mueller; I was not one of them. Trump has been linked to crime, crime families, obstructing justice, for a very long time.

Sarah Kendzior: Who doesn't have evidence of criminal conduct by Donald Trump while in office? Not just what Trump himself has admitted to but also violations of the emoluments clause, money laundering, campaign finance violations...
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Some people see Michael Cohen as The Great White Hope who will bring Trump down while others see him as a victim.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Cohen should have been in jail decades ago. I hope he brings something useful tomorrow to the broader scope of what the Trump administration has been doing.

Sarah Kendzior: It's deja news, the same thing again. The FBI was investigating Trump's businesses--it's a start; they should have been doing it 30 years ago, and definitely in the run-up to the election.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Many of Trump's crimes were committed right out in the open. It blows my mind that the FBI has done so little and that there are still no indictments for Trump & so many of the players.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: When you're running for President, you get briefings that you shouldn't be see if you're committing crimes. Being a candidate for President shouldn't qualify you to see confidential documents/briefings.

On @gaslitnation, @AndreaChalupa talks impeachment: "What concerns me is that Democrats are very good at giving away their power. The wave that brought this new class of Democrats in the House want impeachment. Read the room! The people want impeachment."
"The House should at least symbolically send a message that America sees what's happening, that we see this long list of crimes that are impeachable. No, it will not pass the Senate, but as a matter of human rights and dignity, the House must impeach."
"But I worry that the Dems don't know how to own their power. They're always giving their power away. They're always apologizing for their power and values, while the GOP sinks lower and lower and is proud of it."

At 15:30 @AndreaChalupa and I go off on Flynn and the leniency he's granted despite being an agent for Russia and Turkey, plotting to abduct a Turkish cleric, lying to the FBI, trying to sell nuclear material with the Russians and Saudis...🤤 #GaslitNation
"Instead of cooperating with Mueller or showing repentance, Flynn is doing things like showing up in St Louis at a right-wing extremist conference hosted by Gateway Pundit that was like a who's who of total pieces of shit" #GaslitNation
"Flynn is the next Oliver North, only much more dangerous. The Trump administration serves foreign powers. It is an anti-American administration, and Flynn is an anti-American political operative. If he's running loose, we're in jeopardy." #GaslitNation

Rick: Do you believe the story about the rain?
Sarah Kendzior: NO! This is all crap. Trump golfs in the rain. He's taken the water bucket challenge. He's afraid of things like stairs. He is actively hostile & trying to undermine the stability of western order.
Sarah Kendzior: What Trump did was insulting, cruel, a stab at the dignity of the countries involved, and then to do it again by stabbing at France on the 3rd anniversary of the terrorist attack...
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Trump doesn't smile. He doesn't laugh. He sneers, he smirks. The only time you see anything close to a smile is when he's with Cohen or with various members of Russian mafia or Kremlin officials. That's disturbing.

Rick: Grassley basically said women don't want to work.
Sarah Kendzior: All women do is work. Women have been doing the bulk of the work of protesting, documenting the atrocities of the this administration.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Those in power don't care. Our elected representatives don't care about our opinions, about their constituents, about being voted out of office. That tells me they plan to rig election, disqualify votes after the fact.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: They want a disempowered, serf-like class struggling for survival. It's the Republican dream. They've designed a transnational economy that benefits the wealthiest.

Sarah Kendzior: This was the first I've heard of the parade being cancelled. Costing $92 million??
Rick: How do you justify spending $92 million on something that only one person wants?
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: $92 million could be spent on veterans, on healthcare, on so many more things that are more important than a parade.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Rick: I find it funny they waited until the NDAA was signed before they pulled back on the parade.

Sarah Kendzior: I think with all Republicans you need to look at what policies they've passed & what their rhetoric is. They say someone should do something about Russian interference (them!) but nothing's getting done.
@sarahkendzior #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Russia wants the US to be pulled out of NATO. They want NATO to be weakened, they want the US to be weakened, they don't want oligarchs to be investigated for anything.
@sarahkendzior #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Why would the Russians help Dems win elections? The Russians wouldn't get what they want then. Saying the Russians are helping Dems is absolute crap.
