The Senate/Russia story isn’t getting nearly enough pick up and the Senate GOP isn’t taking a hit for it.

Let's change that.

The #RubioReport shows definitively that @marcorubio and members of the @SenateGOP understood that @realDonaldTrump's campaign was in touch with Russian intelligence during the 2016 campaign.

#TheyKnew
That means #TheyKnew the Trump campaign, Bannon, Manafort, Kushner, Don. Jr, all them, had inappropriate contacts with Russian operatives when the @SenateGOP acquitted @realDonaldTrump of abusing his office.

Terrible coincidence :

- Air India Express flight IX-812 crashed doing Dubai - Mangalore today early morning in 2010.

- Pakistan International Airlines flight PK-8303 Lahore - Karachi today.

#mayday.
Thank you for reminding @ronak_hv. Had remembered all of the month and forgot today in our flight resumption.
"Then the fuselage broke next to his seat, 19A, and Ismail jumped 10ft"

Remember this man running from a crashing plan even today.

(I had got an international award for a series that predicted a crash was imminent. Perhaps should have gone wrong)

Happy World Press Freedom Day!

I have been summoned to Bukit Aman this Wednesday for questioning over my reporting of the immigration raid on the downtown KL red zone on #MayDay.
According to PDRM, I am being investigated under Sek 504 of the Penal Code and Sek 233 of the Communications & Multimedia Act.

Many of you heard the news super quick (can jadi reporter yourselves wei) and sent messages of support. I want to say thank you so much <3
My dear friend @CitizenNades wrote a column questioning the allegation that (as per the relevant section in law) I/my piece "intentionally insults, and thereby gives provocation to any person". He pointed out that #Malaysia had climbed 22 spots in the World Press Freedom report.

Antifa & left-wing protesters in Chicago targeted Heartland Alliance, a nonprofit that houses migrant & unaccompanied minors. Masked protesters scaled facility & threw incendiary devices. This video shows one of the devices nearly landing on a child brought to the protest #MayDay
A week and a half ago, the same Chicago nonprofit had been targeted by antifa & the far-left. They were violent outside the building, shooting flares and throwing smoke bombs. The charity said the children inside were scared. There were no arrests. fox32chicago.com/news/immigrati…
Background: Amid pandemic, radical left-wing protesters are calling for the nonprofit to be shut down. They say the facility is a "prison" for migrant children & that keeping them there endangers them. Police climbed a ladder & tackled one protester today. wgntv.com/chicago-news/p…

ok turns out I now know where I was radicalized, thank you Disney (????)
Did this also pay the groundwork for my obsession with Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker newspaper???

When #ToniMorrison said, "...the very serious function of racism is distraction," I believe she wasn't just referring to how white supremacy forces us to constantly prove ourselves, but also how it forces us to defend the world as it is. #COVID19 blockclubchicago.org/2020/05/01/chi…
That nurses are forced to defend the public from white nationalist militias, when they should be not merely saving lives, but demanding safer working conditions, proper funding of their hospitals, universal healthcare, and well beyond, is itself a distraction. #COVID19
To truly combat #COVID19 we need more than just the right to stay at home--though we certainly do need that. We also need a #MassRelaseNow for incarcerated people, we need #Medicare4All, and we need to meet every demand of striking #MayDay workers at #Amazon and beyond.

And we are LIVE at @Yale's #MayDay town hall! Tune in with us.

@SaloveyPeter: Some of you have made sacrifices. Some of you have been selfless. Some of you have loved ones who have lost jobs. Some of you are about to be laid off by @Yale as the university crashes higher ed as we know it.

Gonna describe the origins of #MayDay (International Workers' Day) in this thread.

So this is what the US looked like in 1886: massive inequality, rapid industrialization, monopolistic corporations, & an emerging class of highly exploited wage workers- many of them immigrants...
Fearing an eventual insurrection, capitalists & many middle-class professionals constantly attempted to justify this exploitation, saying workers were less evolved, less intelligent & naturally violent. Not totally unlike how slavery had been justified via racist stereotypes...
The courts & lawmakers didn't care about worker suffering. Workers organizing to demand better pay & conditions were met w/ state violence instead of sympathy. Many workers became anarchists & embraced revolutionary ideas. This was esp true in Chicago, a new industrial city w/ a

Kisah Sosok Wanita Kuat Simbol Perjuangan Buruh, Marsinah
#MayDay2020 #MayDay
#Marsinah

a thread
Marsinah, mungkin namanya sudah banyak terdengar bagi sebagian orang terutama di kalangan para pekerja buruh Indonesia. Ketika hari buruh 1 Mei pun, namanya sering disebut2 begitu pula ketika hari HAM, fotonya pun tersebar dimana mana sebagai icon penuntut keadilan.
Ya, Marsinah adalah contoh kecil dari bentuk perlawanan rakyat menengah bawah kepada penguasa yang berakhir dengan hilangnya nyawa seseorang. Kasusnya dengan segala intrik didalamnya masih terus dikenang dan dianggap sebagai titik hitam dalam penegakan HAM di Indonesia.

I’m going to say some indelicate things. This isn’t meant to deprive anyone of hope. It’s meant to help us make better tactical decisions about where we spend our limited resources in a time with no functional centralized government. 👇thread👇

The recognition of the political nature of health & appreciation of the political determinants of health are key to better understanding despair & health inequality, as well as our shared responsibility to ensure the conditions under which people can enjoy hope & health equity. Image
The decline in life expectancy is occurring in part due to deaths from despair. From 2007 - 2017, the mortality rate from drug overdoses increased 82% while suicide rates increased 24%.

Many problems associated with poor health stem from lower incomes.

“...it is essential to rethink the hegemonic discourse of the right to health so that it becomes a first-class human right intrinsically coupled to the other social, political and economic rights.”

Portland’s #MayDay was a celebration of Marxism, socialism & communism. It called for violence against border enforcement & even the destruction of the U.S. I will upload footage that I recorded in chronological order. #antifa
"What's the number one reason people get stopped in this country & kidnapped?" asks a masked woman. "Skin color." She then says that every single white person there needs to use their unearned privilege to protect others. "F— the state!" #antifa #MayDay
Fight nearly broke out when someone with #antifa stole Joey Gibson's (of Patriot Prayer) hat. Masked individuals surrounded & confronted him as soon as he showed up. #MayDay

I want to take a moment to honor the workers I've gotten to know over the years I've practiced law. Today being #InternationalWorkersDay, we're reminded that workers are the majority, worldwide, and face a common struggle, worldwide.
It's too easy it is for our legal system to disadvantage workers - disproportionately immigrant. The protections aren't where they must be, and are where they shouldn't.

Not paid a living wage.
Victimized by labor brokers who earn their trust.
Victims of payroll fraud.
Unsafe working conditions.
Threats of immigration enforcement.
Workplace raids.
Barred from organizing.
Suffering under at-will "right to work."

I remember my clients who have been victimized in at least one of these ways, sometimes more.

"Most Americans don't realize that #MayDay has its origins here in this country and is as American as baseball and apple pie, and stemmed from the pre-Christian holiday of Beltane, a celebration of rebirth and fertility." iww.org/history/librar…
"When we remember that people were shot so we could have the 8-hour day; if we acknowledge that homes with families in them were burned to the ground so we could have Saturday as part of the weekend;
"when we recall 8-year old victims of industrial accidents who marched in the streets protesting working conditions and child labor only to be beat down by the police and company thugs, we understand that our current condition cannot be taken for granted."

1. The #Mayday US Senate exam of AG William Barr for the #MuellerReport found Democrats flailing all day: How to spin something out of nothing? Attack Barr who'd elected to release whole confidential report finding no collusion & couldn't charge obstruction. They were flummoxed.
2. The gist of the entire day was captured by Senator Cruz who was himself reportedly a target of the spying. For example, most focus was on the #MuellerLetter, a nonsensical complaint in the context of the full, non-obligatory disclosure of all of #MuellersReport. #NothingBurger
3. Ted Cruz pointed out that the unnecessary $35-$40 million 2 year investigation into the #RussiaHoax came up with no collusion and no obstruction after 2800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, and 500 witnesses. You can't say they didn't try. #Spygate
