Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…

#RoyMoore #ALSen 2017
@DougJones was "helped" to "win" in a variety of ways.

foxnews.com/politics/democ…

One was the cynical use of faux "Russian bots"
by the very Democrats who assisted Senate Intel AND MUELLER in understanding Russian bots

(Mueller lied about Kremlin links)
After the anomaly-filled election, Judge Hardwick denied #RoyMoore's valid request to delay certification.

Certified less than an hour later.

Data from the election was deleted almost immediately.
#VoterFraud #ElectionFraud?

The Verge is upset that Facebook banned accounts of those who used Russian-style disinfo to defeat #RoyMoore -- promoting yet another form of cheating @DougJones into office.

The five groups who interfered on behalf of Jones claim "investigative" reasons theverge.com/2018/12/22/181…

No @jimgeraghty this issue is not that @DavidAFrench disagrees with @realDonaldTrump!

The issue is that his way was losing and wouldn't have worked. @JebBush was never or no other establishment @GOP was going to win any other elections!

@BarackObama...

...had found THE key to keep the young and progressive on a perpetual readiness to wage war. SOCIAL JUSTICE was broken down & replaced with @washingtonpost @nytimes validating 1 sides thoughts over the other!

The issue with @DavidAFrench is he is ready to throw away his...
....principles when his sensibilities are hurt. @judgeroymooreAL was a God sent and the best test for true conservatives!

The purity tests! All those who failed are easy to list. Suddenly the constitutionalists like @JonahDispatch @jpodhoretz @DavidAFrench @stephenfhayes...

THREAD - THE #IMPEACHMENT CHARADE

(Note: If you're offended by someone refusing to cheerlead for #Pelosi and Dem leaders, I'd suggest you avoid this thread.)

Let's break it down. We've had weeks of #ImpeachmentHearings to "inquire" about what Trump FREELY admitted on October 3.
THE #IMPEACHMENT CHARADE

And these hearings came after months of Dem leaders refusing to #ImpeachTrump for:

Torturing migrant kids.

Violating the #EmolumentsClause.

Assaulting the First Amendment.

Obstructing justice with #Mueller.

Inciting #WhiteSupremacist terrorism.
THE #IMPEACHMENT CHARADE

Apparently #Pelosi's brilliant "long game" was to give Trump a pass on ALL his numerous egregious abuses of power, and to wait for a #whistleblower to magically appear.

And the ultimate offense was not kidnapping brown children, but coming for #Biden.

Interesting evening spent with 4 senators at a very small gathering. LOTS of optimism—fueled by internal #poll data—that we will flip the Senate.

Maine: @SenatorCollins is DOWN by 2 points. Her #Kavanaugh vote decimated her approval rating — she went from 57 to the upper-30’s.😎
Senate breakdown is 53 @GOP—47 @SenateDems + Independent.

@DougJones faces a tough re-election bid, but @jeffsessions may split the anti-Roy Moore vote. If Moore wins the primary, Jones has a great chance.

If Jones loses, we need 4-5 seats to flip—4 if we win @POTUS, 5 if not.
In Colorado, @CoryGardner is in BIG trouble. John @Hickenlooper leads by 12 points!

In #NC, @ThomTillis is literally polling in the toilet (approval rating in the 20’s!), so another great pickup opportunity for @TheDemocrats.😎

I'll let you in on a little secret.

"regimes that sponsor terror ..." 👈🏽
I recognize Bolton's words.

👉🏽Deep State

"the President ....to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, .."

#Democrats in the House decided to write legislation BACKWARDS TO PROTECT #SchiffShow He & the whistle blower acted TOGETHER, & now he wants RETROACTIVE protection of the whistle blower’s identity, when the LAW only protects the WB from WORKPLACE RETALIATION, not his FACE.
2/ Were this kind of legislation to stand, the garbage that #Kavanaugh faced will look like amateur night. This could allow for HUNDREDS of WB’s to come forward with NO INFORMATION WHATSOEVER. This gives us “guilty until proved innocent.” Democrat’s will have a field day wasting
3/ MORE taxpayer dollars protecting any Tom, Dick or Harry. No “first hand knowledge” necessary. It’s Red Flags for Congress: anyone can report from anywhere about anything on the defendant with NO REPERCUSSION or consequences. #Democrats can inundate a hearing with “whistle

I'm unimpressed with the #impeachment process thus far.

Trump should have been impeached in January for his crimes and abuses.

#Kavanaugh and #Barr should be impeached too. And those defying subpoenas should be arrested.

Anything less is soft-pedaling.
Let's be real:

The day Trump and Miller started kidnapping babies was the day Trump should have been #impeached.

In fact, he should be tried for crimes against humanity.

And if you think I'm exaggerating, ask the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor...

And to the Dem leaders who pretend a #Ukraine phone call is "easier to understand" than torturing migrant children, I call b.s.

Wow, I researched this and didn't know a Q drop spelled out the answer.

Another Anon kept asking about POTUS' War Powers.
Funny, he didn't like my answer.

Same answer Q gave us. #Q613

POTUS War Powers, Opinion by Office of Legal Counsel

We accordingly conclude that, under Milligan & Quirin, the President's constitutional authority as Commander in Chief to detain enemy combatants extends to U.S. citizens and non-citizens alike.

Letter today from @SenatorCollins says #Mueller left it to #Barr to decide whether Trump obstructed justice. In fact Mueller EXPLICITLY said he would've exonerated Trump if he could have & laid out SUBSTANTIAL evidence for MULTIPLE counts of obstruction.
For 6 months, I've asked #Collins 2 yes/no Qs: Did she read Mueller's Report & did she agree w/ his finding that Trump would've been indicted for obstruction if he weren't president? From her answer, I don't know if she read the Report & didn't understand it or didn't read it.
Impossible to look at #Mueller's Vol 2 table of contents & think he didn't determine whether Trump obstructed justice. TRUMP OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE. Mueller explicitly states he didn't charge Trump because of DOJ/OLC policy, not because Trump is INNOCENT.

THREAD: With the #Kavanaugh stories coming out of the @nytimes, I want to share some original reporting that has been ignored.

Christine Blasey Ford was an even bigger hero than you know.

Please share this. The world deserves to know her story.
2/ Dr. Ford had never even told her husband about #Kavanaugh’s sexual assault.

They were remodeling their house, and Dr. Ford insisted on building a SECOND FRONT DOOR so she would feel safe. Her husband thought this was ridiculous, so she told him through a therapist.
3/ She was beyond terrified of speaking up, but felt a deep civic duty to this country to tell the Senators voting her experience.

She did not sleep for TWO DAYS before sending this message to @SenFeinstein. She was desperately hoping the Senator would keep her name out of it.

#BREAKING:#Kavanaugh registered his website domain confirmkavanaugh.com on February 8, 2017. How did he know way back then that (1) Kennedy would retire and (2)he would be the nominee? Hmm--STRANGE

#TheResistance #SupremeCourt #CNN #MSNBC #Yahoo #WednesdayThoughts #FBRParty
So lets get this straight--On the one hand we had #Kavanaugh correctly "predicting" Kennedy would retire and he would be the nominee, and on the other hand Kennedy's son giving #Trump SHADY loans while at #deutschebank yet its CRICKETS from #MSM. Hmm

Since the latest #Kavanaugh story broke my mentions have been flooded with women (and a few men) who have been victims of rape and sexual assault by men. It's heartbreaking, this recurrent trauma victim/survivors must endure because of this president's vile choices. #MeToo
1/
I have tried to speak to everyone--to give support.
It's essential victims know they are seen.
But we need much, much more, starting with a president who will prioritize victims and not appoint accused rapists to positions of power--like judges.
2/
We also need law enforcement that is more responsive to victims than to perpetrators and all of us have to stop prioritizing perpetrators.
1 in 4 women is a rape victim--we all know one or are one.
Most rapists are known in some way to their victims--so we all know a rapist.

#Kamala is now up on #TRMS. Rachel asks her what she means by "sham process". She discusses how 1000s of pages were dumped at the time 11th hour, credible allegations were not investigated, and #ChristineBlaseyFord was treated like a criminal when she had nothing to gain.
#Kamala reminds us the White House was "orchestrating" and "curating" what the Judiciary committee could learn about #Kavanaugh. "The process by which he was confirmed has caused a crisis of confidence". Impeachment is necessary.

People don't realize that in the vast majority of cases - not just rape, but robbery, assault, larceny, even murder - the only or primary evidence is testimonial. Meaning someone's word.

There are literally people sitting on death row based on testimonial evidence. #Kavanaugh
Prosecutors have a stock line at the beginning of jury selection where they say, now you may watch CSI and Law & Order, but that's not the real world. What we have in the real world is testimony, often just by the person making the allegation.
Then they will ask jurors, can you convict solely on the basis of testimonial evidence. And if people can't do that, they are struck from the jury for cause. It's a basic requirement for sitting on a jury that you are able to do that.

"A classmate, Max Stier, saw Brett Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.

Stier notified senators and the FBI about this account, but the FBI did not investigate."
Bill Barr, in his continuing degradation of the integrity and independence of the DOJ, is bestowing one of its top awards to the lawyers who worked on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Perhaps he should give it to the @FBI agents who buried Brett's investigation.
"Ramirez’s legal team gave the @FBI a list of at least 25 individuals who may have had corroborating evidence.

But the bureau interviewed none of them, though we learned many of these potential witnesses tried in vain to reach the FBI on their own."
