2016: Andrés Sepúlveda rigged elections throughout L Am for almost a decade.

His boss: Juan José Rendón, a Miami-based pol consult’t aka the Karl Rove of Latin Am.

2015: Colombian media reported that Rendón worked for Trump’s prez campaign—both denied.🤔 bloomberg.com/features/2016-…
Sepúlveda wrote a software program, called Social Media Predator, to manage & direct a virtual army of fake Twitter accts.

The software let him quickly change names, profile pictures, & bios to fit any need.

📌Sepúlveda found he could manipulate the public debate as easily as moving pieces on a chessboard.

cc @WizardEightThem interesting 2016 article.

So Black Israelites is the #1 trend on Twitter this morning! Maybe because they accosted the #CovingtonCatholic kids called them Crackers & even called one of the black teenagers the - N - word repeatedly & called White folks & Trump Supporters demons!
The Black Israelites are also very homophobic & insensitive to gay & lesbians.......how ironic! 😏

Now you see what #Racism & #Homophobia really looks like today.
#CovingtonCatholic
Btw.....#NathanPhillips is a liar playing a victim who is a Professional #Occupy Protester who uses his race & Veteran status to further a lie!

He's nothing more than a #BlueFalcon!

He went into the crowd to taunt the kids from #CovingtonCatholic

Looking for examples of social movements, activist campaigns etc. that organised with a transparent handbook so anyone can copy their structure.

Like the Enspiral Handbook (handbook.enspiral.com) but for movements.

Any clues? #occupy #ExtinctionRebellion #BLM
@AyniTeam @UlexProject do you have examples to share? Looking for a specific movement or organisation that publishes their "how we work" documentation, e.g. decision-making, roles, comms tools, policies, etc.

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

I want to throw out a couple of thoughts I have about the mis-use of the term 'progressive' as a euphemism for 'liberal'. I've addressed this in public talks before but never put them to written media and would like feedback.
During the run up to the Iraq war and later, during #Occupy, I always considered myself a liberal, since that was the derisive term used by Rush, Hannity and others that I fundamentally disagreed with. It was a label I wore with pride.
I'm not sure exactly when "progressive" entered my lexicon - it was probably during the @BernieSanders campaign, and it seemed like every "liberal" politician was using the word to describe their positions.

Meet @Krasner4DA. Larry Krasner was among the first candidates @RealJusticePAC backed in prosecutor elections in 2017. When Krasner launched his campaign in a crowded field of 7 candidates last year, he was widely considered "completely unelectable" for his unapologetic platform.
Larry is a lifelong civil rights lawyer and had gained notoriety over the years for defending activists from #BlackLivesMatter, ActUp, and #Occupy. He ran on a platform of ending the death penalty, tackling mass incarceration, treating drug addiction as a disease not a crime.
He promised “transformational change” in the district attorney’s office aimed at reversing “a system that has systemically picked up black and brown people.” @RealJusticePAC raised more direct donations for Larry Krasner than any other endorsing organization.
