The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"

"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

Seth's @SethAbramson lengthy thread on his take away from Barr's planned release of the redacted #Mueller report, the event's leading up to it, with links to related items. Definitely worth your time to read carefully. #GeeksResist #TheResistance #HeroesResist #VeteransResist
UPDATE 1: My friend Bryan @ "Why Now?' posted a blog with links to various related items of interest. Please check them out also.…
UPDATE 2: Digby @ Hullabaloo posted an article w/ a possible reason Mueller let Don Jr. off the hook so easily! Explanation by Election Law expert Rick Hasen. It was a bad decision by Mueller IMO.

We have more to say to clarify our position.

In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth , I will discuss the Supreme Court decision on racial segregation, Brown v. Board of Ed.

The decision is a landmark achievement.

To this day, however, Brown's promise of racial integration hasn't been fully realized. A thread.

#RBA⚖️ #RebelScum
In 1896, the Court in Plessy v. Ferguson upheld racial segregation laws requiring the separation of whites and blacks on railroad passenger trains. The Court held that such laws didn't violate equal protection as long as separate accommodations were equal.
A horrendous decision, it legitimated Jim Crow segregated society up until 1954, when the Court handed down Brown. And this nation would never be the same.

Many resistance members and groups on twitter choose to engage in anonymous political activism.

Doing so is a part of a long tradition of anonymous activism explicitly protected by the First Amendment. A thread. #RBA⚖️
Resistance groups such as #RebelScum #GeeksResist #HeroesResist do their activism anonymously. Members adopt pseudonyms, many using fictional characters as their twitter names.

This is nothing new, and the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized and affirmed such practices.
In McIntyre v. OES, 514 U.S. 334 (1995), the Court held that the state cannot prohibit people from passing out anonymous political literature.

In that case, an activist was finedfor handing out leaflets opposing a school tax levy as “Concerned Parents and Tax Payers.”

We have only days to kill the #GOPTaxScam

We must call, fax write & show up to our Senators & House Representatives. Relentlessly. 🔥

Here's a script and why. 1/x
#TheResistance #TaxScam
We know the House has passed their version of the #GOPTaxPlan. We have no time to lose. We are in a race to defeat this. The Senate will be trying to pass their version next, but we can’t just wait on that. We need to full on hit the House & Senate to defeat this NOW. 2/x
The ordinary process (rule of order) for a tax plan is:
1. House and Senate pass their separate versions.
2 .There is a "conference" on a compromise.
3. The final compromise through BOTH Senate and House again.
4. The President signs it into law. 3/x #GOPTaxScam

I'm not thinking about #oneyearundertrump today.

I'm thinking about #oneyearofTheResistance and what we've done. Thread.
@CapRogers2017 @2HawkEye2018 @WarMachine2018 @Thor_ofMight @AgentHillResist @ScarletAvengers @ItHasBegun2016 @AgentCarter_SSR We've learned how to call out Members of Congress daily and effectively.

It makes a difference.

We've killed the ACA repeal THREE TIMES and calls to Congress were cited as the biggest reason for the success.

Calls to Congress are vital!
@CapRogers2017 @2HawkEye2018 @WarMachine2018 @Thor_ofMight @AgentHillResist @ScarletAvengers @ItHasBegun2016 @AgentCarter_SSR We show up!

#TheResistance has shown we will be there to fight the discrimination of racially motivated bans, executive orders, and demonstrations for hate.
