Thread. #MyLifeAsAResister looking back at 12 months which feels Iike 12 years. So much happened every day, but we put one foot in front of the other, wading through the lies, the chaos, the deconstruction of our institutions. We keep our faith. 1/24
January 2018, for the second time in two years, women and the men who support us, gathered by the millions to send a message. We will not be cowed by a regime that does everything to take away our own agency. My cousin Zigi and I at the #WomensMarch @ZigarinaZigi 2/24
February 2018. Looking for inspiration and wisdom, I went to see Dan Rather, whose book is a must read for resisters. @DanRather spoke eloquently about what he learned from decades of reporting, that we are mighty together, that our core values hold and that it IS up to US. 3/24

"It surprised me a lot to hear him say that he never blacked out...yeah, very drunk." - James Roach, one of Kavanaugh's college roommates, who was not interviewed by the FBI. #ThursdayThoughts #NoKavanaugh
Brett Kavanaugh’s former college classmate Chad Ludington “unequivocally” says that Kavanaugh “has not told the truth” in denying the possibility that he blacked out from drinking: “I never saw him passed out but I saw him quite drunk” #Thursdaythoughts
Before I continue: In the first tweet, I spelled Jamie Roche's name incorrectly. It is, in fact, not "Roach". 🤣 Thank you, @chargrille, for the correction. ❤️ I blame not having my third cup of coffee yet.

*WARNING-- RANT ALERT*

I have heard non-stop complaints from the right about "hysterical" and unfair Democratic treatment of Brett Kavanaugh, and even praising Lindsay Graham's diatribe in the hearing last week (e.g. Kathleen Parker's recent nauseating column).
As far as I've seen, Democratic politicians have bent over backwards to be fair and judicious about Brett Kavanaugh. However, the Democratic base is definitely upset, and they have every reason to be upset.
What's rarely said but is the silently screaming subtext to all this anger is that Brett Kavanugh will be a hard conservative vote on the Supreme Court that the rightwing hopes and the leftwing fears will not only insulate Trump from ongoing investigations but

As we continue to make our case to @SenatorCollins, we Mainers ask a favor of our fellow patriot activists in other states who are working hard with us to #StopKavanaugh.(Thread)
#NoKavanaugh #CollinshearME
@IndivisibleTeam @mfalpac @Indivisible_MDI @IndivisibleSagC
Please keep calling the senators in your states. But leave Collins' phone lines open for Mainers. She has pointed to out-of-state calls and TV ad purchases as evidence that it's not her constituents doing the calling. We know better. We need to remove all doubt.
#NoKavanaugh
We don't want to give her any room to say Mainers aren't calling (which she has reportedly done). Trust us. We are fighting as if our future--and yours--depends on it. Because it does. We won't stop calling, emailing & showing up until the votes our cast. We know #WhatsAtStake.

This exchange tells me everything I need to know about Kavanaugh. What a POS he is.

Ugh, I've been spelling Kavanaugh wrong all morning.

I challenge every member of #TheResistance to spend at least one third of their social media time in the coming days actively fighting the illegitimate nomination of #BrettKavanaugh to #SCOTUS by the Unindicted Co-conspirator In Chief.

As expected, Trump has chosen an extremist for the Supreme Court who can & would undermine:

-Healthcare as a right, not a privilege
-Reproductive rights
-Voting rights
-Workers' rights
-Consumer rights
-A safe environment

For a generation. #Scotuspick #KavanaughSCOTUS 1/11
We need to call every one of our Senators. 202-224-3121, or with contactingcongress.org
NOW.

We need to support those who have come out against Kavanaugh & convince those that haven't that #Kavanaugh is the wrong choice. #NOKavanaugh

The following will tell you why. 2/11
A woman's right to choose is in jeopardy. A full repeal may or may not be attempted soon, but Roe v. Wade will be chipped away at.

Pro-choice GOP Sens. Susan Collins & Lisa Murkowski need to be reminded. Collins has been lied to before. #WhatsAtStake
