You know what they’re trying to do? They’re trying to squeeze out players. Vaping. Now CBD. Don’t be surprised when new alternatives get big and gobble up the spaces. Same thing happened w/ online gambling (poker). Hell, the internet!

Here’s a history and overview. #OneVoice1 🧵
This is how our economy is exploited; it’s a “pump and dump” on a societal scale. The same mobs are crashing storefronts, but now it’s big corporations racketing the shit out of small–midsized businesses. In every sector. Soon there will be no opportunity left—we’re almost there.
To those who say “This is how it is, that’s how it’s played, the economy is rigged…”

You’re absoforkintootly right.

At a certain point, corps—money aggregates—get large enough to “bend” the markets. They have gravity.

I call them Death Stars of Capitalism.

1/5 Donald Trump, aka John Barron, aka David Dennison, is telling us "do not believe any article or story you read or see that uses “anonymous sources” having to do with trade or any other subject."

This is more than an attack on the #FreePress.

#GeeksResist #DemCast #OneVoice1
2/5 It is an attack on facts.

On reality.

And on the #whistleblower.

Trump famously spreads disinformation with phrases like "people are saying", invoking phantom polls and friends and "everybody knows" when he wants to lie.

So he has no problem with "anonymous sources."
3/5 His problem is when others use REAL anonymous sources, like the #FreePress, law enforcement, or Congress, for all of whom these sources are vital to preserving our Democratic liberties by obtaining information people would otherwise not share for fear of reprisal or censure.

1/Concerned about sneaky legislation getting through Congress while we are all distracted by impeachment?

Did you know that You can create an account at congress.gov and sign up for email alerts, track legislation and follow activities of House & Senate?

#OneVoice1
2/ You can do searches for certain topics, like #GunControl and see who is co-sponsoring bills, and what the legislative support is on bills from certain Representatives and Senators. For example, I see #EdMarkey has co-sponsored a Gun Violence Prevention Research Act.
3/ From there, I can click on Ed Markey's name to get alerts so that I know when he is co-sponsoring and voting on bills.

The Intersectionality of Control

(As pertains to authoritarian lockdown of shared resources vital to continued human civilization.)

A thread in 3 parts:

I. Social Drivers
II. Inciting Techniques
III. False Flags vs. Real Solutions

#OneVoice1 🧵
DISCLAIMER: With this thread I seek to dissect the 2019 manifestation of white nationalism on a global scale. Therefore, “global white nationalism” refers not to localized racism or violence, but the collectivized, global nature of such threats today, which is unique in history.
I. Social Drivers

Global white nationalism is founded not on racism but the climate crisis.

Ethnonationalists—perhaps unwittingly—serve to protect capital interests while capital interests abet racism as a tactic.

Both misrepresent white identity as a means for human survival.

1/17 Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch is a hero.

Let's begin there.

She did not set out to be a hero.

She set out to serve her country with skills carefully learned over a lifetime in the Foreign Service.

And she did.

2/17 A career diplomat, she served in the State Department since 1986. This means she served under Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama before doing so under Trump.

washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
3/17 She is the Canadian-born daughter of Russians who fled the USSR & Nazis, served 30 years in the Foreign Service wing of the State Dept., moved 13 times to serve in 7 countries, & is former ambassador to Kyrgyzstan (2004-08) & Armenia (2008-11).

1/* (THREAD) This @Comey op-ed lays bare a glaring problem in #PutinsGOP's defense of #TRE45ON's total disregard for his oath of office - doing so is fundamentally at odds with, and violative of, their own oaths of office:

(Thread) Rep. Chuck Fleischmann’s Phony Town Hall
#WeAreTN
#OneVoice1

On 10/23/19, Rep Chuck Fleischmann held a phone “town hall”. I had been wondering for some time why he wouldn’t hold real town halls where his constituents could talk to him directly, face-to-face. (1)
Then, it became painfully clear. He spent most of the time patting himself on the back for his work in securing grants for various interests, bashing “Democrats” while ironically calling for an end to partisan divisiveness, and parroting GOP-issued talking points dripping (2)
with disinformation. He sounded like a wannabe Matt Gaetz. There was no hint of genuine concern for the thoughts/needs of the people he had been elected to serve.
If you had a❓for Chuck, you could press *3 and talk to an operator who asked for your name, etc. and your ❓(3)

3/5 Here is what's being called the "transcript" of the call, but more accurately described as a "read out" in that although it's still a really bad look for #TRE45ON, there appears to be some missing content. LOTS of "Rudy Giuliani" mentions:

1/9 (THREAD) Although impeachment investigations against #TRE45ON are currently focused on the Ukraine call, as the inquiry expands, there needs to be a concurrent investigation into AG Bill Barr's conduct, because nobody has done more to destroy the rule of law:
#Onevoice1
2/9 People worried about who would replace Jeff Sessions were relieved when Barr was nominated because supposedly was "a rule of law guy." However, in Barr's previous stint as H.W. Bush's AG, he devised 41's "pardon away impeachment" strategy:

TY @chrisehyman
Many people get away with blatant lies because other people are reluctant to call them out as being lies

Not naming lies gives them credibility

Individuals and the media should not be afraid to be honest and truthful

Call them what they are: lies

#ChaosControl #OneVoice1
Before you gasp at something in shock, yell “no way” or jump up and down saying “finally!” make sure what you’re reading it accurate.

Give snopes.com or politifact.com a try to verify.

Be careful of disinformation!

Saudi first: Trump wants to start a war with Iran when MBS gives the order interc.pt/30axJio by @mehdirhasan
On the word of a single, likely compromised, U.S. official, CBS says the Saudi oil attack was approved by Iran's supreme leader.

This story deserves our skepticism.

cbsnews.com/news/saudi-oil…
I gotta say, this doesn't FEEL smart.

Under Trump arms deal, US smart bombs to be built in Saudi Arabia

We should not hand the Saudis valuable weapons tech given the kingdom's conduct in Yemen and its human rights record.

Hi Twitter Fam 👋 I'd like to thank all of you for not abandoning me. I know I haven't tweeted much lately. I'm currently experiencing a relapse in my mental health issues. I'll be contacting my doctor next week. Which leads me to the topic of #SinglePayer / #MedicareForAll
1/
I currently see a psychiatrist about once every 3 months about medication. My insurance doesn't cover him, so that's $100 out of pocket every visit. He and I both agree I should be in therapy. Unfortunately, even if my insurance covers it, the co-pay is $40 a visit.
2/
For those of you familiar with how most therapy works, when you start, you may need to see the therapist 3-4 times a week. That's $40 each visit, out of pocket. So let's say it's only 3x a week. That's $480 a month. I can't afford that. So, the only way I have to manage my

I was never safe in my home of origin. Not really safe.
I learned too early that I wasn't safe outside either. Summer games & picnic crumbs gave way to sunset rape, in a bed of gravel, before bedtime, which for a girl of 13, was 9 pm.
I tried to make myself safe so many ways, but
It wasn't until I found a Tang Soo Do Karate class in my local community center that my fantasies of safety became real, with sweat & blood.

I suppose my background could be an easy way to understand why I did what I did, but I think that shorthand answer doesn't define it.
I spent years doing something a traditional method of training known as iron fist training.
I started w sand, then dried beans, then newspaper taped together, then steel ball bearings, then pine boards, then steel plate.
Something I'd only ever seen in movies became mine.

As I sit here drinking tea and thinking about the state of the world, a bumble bee flew by and landed near me.

I thought to myself, will there come a day in the future where people tell their children, "I remember bees. Yes, I remember having ample food..."

There comes a point where we have to ask ourselves if we care about having a future on Earth. Not just for humans, but many, many other species.

The survival of bees and the fate of our own species are 100% intertwined.

I was born into a cult I cannot name. You’ve heard of them. I can’t say their name b/c they scrub coverage and I would risk attack. I am known to them, as is my family. I must protect my family but I also must share what I know.

The GOP is becoming just like them.

#OneVoice1 🧵
This cult holds people against their will. It segregates its own into castes, so’s to profit from free labor. It holds power and control above all else. To deviate from their dictates is to risk expulsion or death. This cult structuralizes itself against dissent.

Sound familiar?
This cult will slime your character and turn your family against you. They divide even the closest relations—parents, children—at the slightest hint of deviation from their views. I am fortunate to not have been raised in one of their churches.

Sound familiar?

Let’s talk neoliberalism. Neoliberalism is not liberalism. Modern neoliberalism stems from Reaganism and Thatcherism.

Trump is a neoliberal.

Neoliberalism mainstreamed in the 80s by way of evangelicals and the resurrected corpse of the economist Milton Friedman.

#OneVoice1 🧵
Neoliberalism’s incipience begins in the late 70s, right about when Noam Chomsky warned of “a new breed of liberalism.”

Now, Friedman was kinduva lowgrade dude. He was basically marginalized and had all these frootloops theories based on his mentor Hayek.
The vid above is Chomsky. Before you get caught up in buzzwords and labels listen to what he says: He is warning of the metastasization of liberalism into a corporate multi-core state. Trickle-down bullshit and corporate personhood and primacy are hallmarks of neoliberal thought.
