Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers (Doyle-Moynihan): Given @realDonaldTrump recent statements re US need to look into funding of @WHO and other organizations receiving $$ via @USAID, I STRONGLY recommend he start w/review of @PSIimpact (Population Services International) > OH MY
Who is @PSIimpact? A DC-based 501c3 that w/operations in ~70 nations worldwide under a variety of corporate structures both for-profit and not-for-profit. What? For-profit? Yep, PSI is largely in the 'family planning/aka 'abortion' franchising business (,prnewswire.com/in/news-releas…).
PSI is the largest non-governmental recipient of funding (~$1B) from the WHO-affiliated @GlobalFund while having also received near ~$900mm in funds from USAID and significant funding from @gatesfoundation. Aside from its' franchised abortion practices (,psi.org/publication/ow…)

“Second verse, same as the first.”

The Establishment Democrats and their corporate shills on TV and all over social media are already signaling that they want Bernie to drop out of the race, even though half of America hasn’t voted yet.
#DropOutBernie

This was always their main objective.
They sent almost 30 candidates at him.
They spent easy over a billion collectively.
Even now every state has disturbingly inaccurate exit polling that in any other country the OAS would deem as a fraudulent election. And yet here we are.

*crickets.

Because there's literally not one single moment when these radical ideologues aren't obsessed with how to control women--especially poor women and women of color--they found a way to use the #COVID aid package to expand the unjust and discriminatory #HydeAmendment. It's sick.
This whole experience watching these people deal with #COVID is that those of us who deal with reproductive freedom and justice have seen this coming a mile away. You have a GOP entirely co opted at this point by a radical right for whom fundamentalism--religious and market-- /2
has completely supplanted any rational thought or science and data-based policy approaches. Medical disinformation and anti-enlightenment thought is core to their identity. Add Trump's peculiar mix of narcissism and megalomania, and it's a truly toxic brew. #COVID /3

@charliekirk11 You are mistaking #PlannedParenthoodVotes, part of a legal #PAC (#PoliticalActionCommittee) with #PlannedParenthood which uses its federal funding within highly restrictive Federal rules such as the #HydeAmendment which bans federal funding for abortions.
snopes.com/fact-check/pla…
@charliekirk11 #PlannedParenthood's super #PAC, #PlannedParenthoodVotes, kicked off a $45 million electoral program targeted toward battleground states for the 2020 election. That's eight times what it spent during the 2018 midterms.

@charliekirk11 #Trump flew to #Afghanistan for his #Thanksgiving dinner.
He probably took the turkey he didn't pardon so they wouldn't have to spend extra money to feed him.
Speaking of govt. funding causing the death of children, read what the U.S. military has done throughout its history.

So @JoeBiden continues to flip stances he's held for 40+ years.
Today it was the #deathpenalty.
As with the #HydeAmendment, I'm not objecting--I'm against Hyde & against the death penalty, so I welcome these 180 shifts in policy.
But why no headline for such a major shift?
1/
#Biden has been one of the staunchest voices for the death penalty for decades. In his 1994 Crime Bill, Biden expanded the #deathpenalty with Title VI, the Federal Death Penalty Act, creating 60 new death penalty offenses under 41 federal capital statutes.
2/
Obama favored expanding the #deathpenalty to include executing child rapists and in 2008 talked about it while campaigning.
Obama didn't soften his position until 2014 & never ceased support for the death penalty. Biden shared that view until...today.

Here's @ZerlinaMaxwell lying about Bernie Sanders (who voted against the Hyde Ammendment in 1993)

And a day later, completely giving Joe Biden a pass for supporting the #HydeAmendment up until yesterday.

This is how paid Shareblue shills bare their asses
David Brock's infamous "Stop Sanders" astroturf army has paid Zerlina's SiriusXM channel since 2017
Here is the cursed Sanders post, ratioed with receipts, the majority of which she chose to deflect, and never once apologized

1 / I'd like to address you, Americans, about something I've experienced more than any of you: the consequences of unsafe abortions. The reason for this thread is the controversy over the #HydeAmendment

I’m glad to see people talking about the need to repeal the #HydeAmendment & its effect on low-income folks especially WOC, QTPOC and more.. Lets also acknowledge why it even exists.. There has always been attempts to attack & regulate our bodies. This isn’t new #BeBoldEndHyde
The systems of White supremacy, patriarchy and misogyny have always tried to regulate the bodies of POC. From slavery, forced sterilization of Black & Brown people, and through Hyde, the sexual & Reproductive lives of POC have always been one of attacks, regulation & denial
So as you continue to raise awareness, know that POC have always been leading this fight.. Fighting for autonomous sexual lives free from shame & discrimination has always been the life of POC & low income folks. Center them

Hi all! We’ve gotten an increase in followers with everything going on in the fight for #reproductivejustice lately so we figured we would make a thread explaining who we are, the work that we do, why it’s all so important, and what YOU can do to help! #FundAbortionBuildPower
When folks say abortion funds aren’t new to abortion bans and anti-choice laws they’re right. CAF has been around for OVER 30 YEARS and we aren’t the only abortion fund either! Check out @AbortionFunds to see a list of our sister funds across the country that help to #fighttheban
For over 30 years, we have provided financial, logistical, and emotional support to folks needing assistance paying for an abortion. We boldly affirm a person's right to choose whether to parent or not and that right should not be determined bc of age, race, economic status, etc.
