I'm glad to see another good article on the New Apostolic Reformation, this one by @mccrummens in @TheAtlantic. I'm going to offer a few thoughts/reflections, but go read the piece before you read this thread. 1/…
The piece follows Tami Barthen, an NAR superfan who was in DC on #January6th. I even excerpted a short clip in Charismatic Revival Fury of Barthen & her husband reading Dutch Sheets' "Appeal to Heaven" decree on J6. I've posted about her before. 2/
The best innovation in @mccrummens' article (something that's often lacking even in well-reported NAR articles) is how deep she goes into the mentality & behavior of non-prophet/apostle *followers.* Here you have someone who literally purchased a mountain based on prophecy. 3/

Everyone should read @FredClarkson's new piece in @Salon where he examines a 50-state series of New Apostolic Reformation prayer calls & the NAR fixation with Pennsylvania in particular.… Just to connect a few dots... 1/
The prayer calls were convened by Clay Nash, an apostle in Dutch Sheets' Network Ekklesia Int'l.… Interestingly, Clay Nash was a member of Sheets' post-2020 election prayer & prophecy tour (see Charismatic Revival Fury, ep. 5.…) 2/ Image
Clay Nash was also in the group of apostles & prophets (led by Dutch Sheets) that met at the White House with top Trump admin officials on Dec 29, 2020 - 8 days before #January6th.… @BradleyOnishi 3/

Alex Jones was initiated into the Proud Boys by Gavin McInnes on Infowars, which remains Roger Stone's propaganda platform too.

OathKeeper Kelly Meggs got 12 yrs yesterday.

In 2022, his co-conspirator Watkins told the committee to blame Alex Jones: (Source, DailyBeast): Image
2/Also yesterday, Oathkeeper Stewart Rhodes got 18 years for seditious conspiracy. Here he is making plans for D.C. on Infowars and talking about "blood on the streets."
3/Here is Alex Jones' infantile, embarrassing, and alarming Proud Boys initiation:

Everything Polievre does is bad faith. He is the most unfit opposition leader in Canadian history, Even more than the other astoundingly unfit choices like Scheer. He represents the dangerous & malicious degradation of the political right & its threat to democracy. #cdnpoli ImageImage
@CTVNews’ promotion of #NevrePoilievre was on full display last night immediately following the Oscars, where PP was featured off the top implying Trudeau is responsible for airport delays 🤦‍♀️. The framing of political hit job stories in #cdnmedia isn’t news & it’s concerning.
A couple of things about this absolutely toxic tweet. What ‘law breaking’? None. #NevrePoilievre has manufactured “broken laws” & “treason”. This is such reckless toxic rhetoric. It is fascistic. Notice his constant nonstop data mining off his lies as well. #WomenAgainstPoilievre Image

I am having a hard time finding any charges for @amyschumer involvement when more than 300 protesters, went to the US Capitol in Washington as they made a final appeal to senators to reject Brett Kavanaugh. Actually, I can't find any capitol breach charges.
I can't find any federal indictments on anyone.
We are not mad people being arrested inside the capitol building or the Hart Senate Office ?

I know I'm being *that guy* who takes a truly funny TikTok video & turns it into an explainer thread on Charismatic-Pentecostal worship practices… 1st, please enjoy the clip in all its hilarity! 2nd, this clip comes from a service at The Storehouse church in Jasper, AL. 1/
That church was founded by Wayne & Jennifer Lee who came out of the International Church of Las Vegas (…). In my Charismatic Revival Fury podcast series (…) I describe how Donald Trump visited ICLV a few weeks b4 the 2020 election. 2/
That day (10/18/20) at ICLV, Apostle/Pastor Paul Goulet held up an Appeal to Heaven flag to present to Trump…, & Prophet Denise Goulet prophesied over Trump that God would give him a “2nd win” and a 2nd filling of the Holy Spirit.… 3/

.@njhochman's attempted refutation of @BradleyOnishi's thesis abt #ChristianNationalism conflates 3 things to reach a simplistic conclusion. Hochman aligns 1) Amer Xty's demographic decline, 2) changing terrain in the culture wars, & 3) some Xn leaders' pessimism abt "winning" 1/
Xty is demographically declining in the U.S., but it's not going quietly into that good night. A lot of that decline is among liberal/prog churches. 45% of Americans who say "U.S. should be a Xn nation" is a still a demogr. force to be reckoned with.… 2/
The long-term coalescence of right-wing Christians around the Republican party means that this demographic, even if it's declining, is ever more important to Republican politicians. One need only look at Trump & DeSantis' jockeying for Evang leaders' support today to verify. 3/

Sidney Powell’s team cld not get Gohmert’s SCOTUS brief—asking Alito to stay certification of Biden’s win to allow briefing on Eastman’s BS legal theory—until 3:51 pm on Jan 6. A Republican Congressman tried earlier that day but failed. Is this when the breach was ordered? 1/ Image
2/ The screenshot in post 1 is from this article by Sidney Powell.…
3/ Gohmert’s brief was based on Eastman’s legal theory that Pence had discretion to reject the real electors & count the fake ones and/or throw it back to the states. Even Eastman knew the theory wld fail on the merits. Image

Alex Jones is my ex, and the unconstitutional efforts to silence me and Color of Law orders enjoining my free speech (that are hidden under a void seal) have been

This thread is about your Trump readmission poll & contemplation & National Security.
@elonmusk 2/I have been outspoken about what I know and understand to be true.

I met Alex Jones in 1998, married him in 2002, and our divorce was final in 2005.

This thread is about the Alex Jones/Infowars Russian connection & contains new revelations.

3/First off, I would like to say that America is a Nation, not a game and that the contemplation of readmission of a man under Federal Investigation for #Insurrection with dictator dreams, undermined our free press & has Russian ties transcends irresponsibility into endangerment.

Autocracy Inc. Is a criminal network. I agreed with everything but the huge missing piece is my area of expertise: authoritarian cults that use brainwashing and mind control through the media, especially social media. Educating everyone about the Influence Continuum / BITE Model
Is essential. Applying and expanding anti-trafficking law to codify brainwashing into legal systems around the world is important step. Leigh misses how cult leaders use religion and spirituality to program people with anti-democratic ideologies- using fear and hate to motivate
And control. Teaching people how to effectively interact with their radicalized family and friends is the solution. Not trying to lecture them with facts to “win” them over. That almost always propels them deeper into the rabbit hole. Listening to former cult members share their

NEW 🧵! Interest Convergence & The American Democratic Republic

It's often been argued that white America has only conceded to Black American demands for justice when there has been interest convergence for the whites in power. (1/x)
Example 1: during the Civil War, emancipation of the enslaved in the South was not the endgame, but a means to strike a blow to the Confederate economy & war effort.

It was the means to preserve the Union. (2/x)
Example 2: With the American Civil Rights Movement (CRM) & the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964, the Voting Rights Act in 1965, & the Fair Housing Act in 1968, the motivating drive was not to help Black Americans out of good will... (3/x)

From the Oath Keepers' pretrial conference. Judge Amit Mehta shoots down Stewart Rhodes' claim that he hasn't had access to discovery. "That is flat-out a false statement. #OathKeepers #January6thInsurrection
Judge Mehta also rejects Rhodes' request for a special master to oversee discovery.

"The idea that you would want to inject a special master a week before the trial is mystifying. You told me last week that you were here in good faith. I'm beginning to question that."
Judge Mehta also says he's not going to delay the trial until the January 6th Committee wraps up its work, calling it a "non-starter."

Pat: Mark, something needs to be done or people are going to die and the blood is going to be on your f—ing hands.

Liz Cheney: The night before #January6th, President* Trump instructed Mark Meadows to contact both Roger Stone and Michael Flynn regarding what would play out the next day.

#CassidyHutchinson: That’s correct. That is my understanding.

Cheney: Did Rudy Giuliani [seek a] pardon related to January 6?
Cassidy Hutchinson: He did.
LC: Did Mark Meadows ever indicate that he was interested in receiving a Presidential pardon related to #January6th?
CH: Mr Meadows did seek that pardon. Yes ma’am.
