#PA01 folks, we simply MUST have a conversation...

1⃣ about #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick,
2⃣his vote against the #DomesticTerrorism bill that he previously co-sponsored,
3⃣and his statement on this vote.

I did a little digging this weekend, and what I found is WILD.
🧵/1
First, a little background info about #DomesticTerrorism.

There is a basic legal definition on what that term means. It's already enshrined into law, in 18 U.S. Code § 2331.

You can read it below, or at this link⤵️

🧵/2
So, we know that #PA01's #GOp Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick co-sponsored the #DomesticTerrorism bill, and then did a complete reversal and voted NO on it.

He knew this behavior was SUPER-SKETCHY, so our #SilentBrian did something uncharacteristic - he issued a statement.

😡@SenMastriano (R) is running 4 PA Governor on an “election integrity” platform, but said NOTHING re: the forged signatures supporting MAGA Republican Dasha Pruett, who he endorsed for #PA01. I interviewed @cmychalejko of @BucksCoBeacon re: the fraud. 1/

Forged signatures on an election petition were intended to benefit MAGA Republican Dasha Pruett in the #PA01 primary. The local @BucksGOP & @BucksDA have remained mum. My interview w/ @cmychalejko, Editor In Chief at @BucksCoBeacon. #ElectionIntegrity 1/
The story has yet to be picked up by the 2 big daily news outlets, @Intelligencer & @CourierTimes, which have much broader circulation than @BucksCoBeacon & @levittownnow, which covered it. PA needs these larger outlets to report on this to create momentum 4 an investigation. 2/

GOP election fraud (forged signatures) recently marred the #PA01 primary, as reported by @BucksCoBeacon & @levittownnow. I spoke w/ @cmychalejko of the Beacon, who told me that the local GOP has yet to comment & that @CourierTimes & @Intelligencer have yet to cover it. 1/

NEW INFO: Five Bucks County Republicans who circulated former candidate Dasha Pruett’s nominating petitions now tell @levittownnow they were not behind the forged signatures on her election documents.

#PA01 #LTownVotes
Four of the five circulators have signed affidavits and some plan to go to law enforcement with their concerns. This follows shoe-leather reporting on the forged signatures last week.
Circulators who signed affidavits and provided statements said signatures they did not collect appeared on forms after they turned them over to Pruett's campaign. The campaign then submitted the petitions to the state.

Given the forged signatures in favor of Republican Dasha Pruett in #PA01 & the fraudulently switched voter registrations in Florida, this surge in switched voter registrations in PA must be investigated immediately. @harrisonjaime: Are u investigating?! Pls make a stmt! 1/

🥵More Republican election fraud & projection. The beneficiary of newly uncovered election fraud in #PA01, MAGA Republican Dasha Pruett (who immigrated to the US from Moscow in 1980), previously questioned the integrity of her 2020 election loss in #PA05. @JoshShapiroPA 1/

Hi folks! Welcome to a bare-bones #Pennsylvania #MoCTrack for the week ending 10/31/21.

Since it is so close to #ElectionDay2021 (which should be your focus), I’m just going to run down the votes and quotes, with basic links.
#MoCTrack 1/20
Full Report- bit.ly/3BwI59Y
The House passed a bill to fund shelters and programs to address #DomesticViolence.

Over 95% of #GOP MoCs voted No on this. #Shame.

8 of 9 #Pennsylvania GOP MoCs were NO votes, only #PA01's @RepBrianFitz voted YES.
#MoCTrack 2/20
govtrack.us/congress/bills…
In case you were wondering why all those #GOP House members voted NO a #DomesticViolence prevention bill? This portion from the speech of Rep. Bob Good of Virginia gives you an idea.

The bill passed, thankfully.

#BucksCounty #PA01's far-right are flying all-black American flags. The flag means "no quarter given" and implies a willingness to use (lethal) violence against perceived enemies: liberals. Spoke w/ @AmyCooter to make sense of this troubling development. buckscountycouriertimes.com/story/opinion/…
"For more than a decade I tried to tell people that militias are under-counted as a political barometer to learn about what many mainstream conservatives are thinking," said @AmyCooter, expert on US domestic militias & right-wing "patriot" groups. #PA01 militia leader posted one ImageImageImageImage
#Wilmington man who attended #Jan6Insurrection & held black American flag said:
"No enemy combatants will receive aid. Basically, if you are an enemy combatant, you will be shot on sight." #BucksCounty #PA01

OK, #Levittown-ers in #BucksCounty #PA01:

this is the thread you’ve been waiting for— your #OriginStory
Further down, Steven Dennis weaves in Levitt's "racial segregation for a buck" ethos
#PA01's @RepBrianFitz grew up in Levittown, PA. This was how he saw it, looking back, in his 2016 run for this (predominantly) #BucksCounty seat.
"Levittown values are blue-collar values"

Reminds me of th time a @RepBrianFitz-stan #BucksCounty GOP committee person posted @ring video footage instantly accessed from (ex-FBI!) Fitzpatrick's #PA01 official district office to mock a local visiting Indivisible crew- it was never explained how he gained security access🧐
Again, this was *not* the @BrianFitzUSA campaign office in #BucksCounty. It was at the official federal #PA01 district office of Rep Fitzpatrick
One of the 3 GOP people involved in this @ring security incident at @RepBrianFitz's office is now working for the @marcorubio campaign
"For starters, the Ring system has been repeatedly criticized for its cyber security flaws"

A mis- and disinformation superspreader event featuring @DefendingEd @KidsinSchoolPAC @NoLeftTurnElana, which should cover #COVID19 anti-mask propaganda, anti-#CriticalRaceTheory hysteria, anti-#DEI falsehoods, and more #BucksCounty #PA01 #PA #Montco #PA @PSEA
For some #BucksCounty #PA01 context highlighting local actors, read "Anti-Critical Race Theory hysteria revives McCarthyism, Klan politics" where I speak with @jasonintrator who provides a historical perspective to things happening on the ground in #PA. buckscountycouriertimes.com/story/opinion/…
Still waiting for these folks to denounce and repudiate the local #BucksCounty #PA01 Three Percent cell - the Proud American Patriots Network militia. Amazing there was going to be a paramilitary picnic with #Reopen folks. So far, crickets...

The armed militia/paramilitary wing of the #Reopen anti-mask movement announced it will be in Doylestown #BucksCounty #PA01 8/25 noon until @CBSDSchools meeting to discuss amending the health & safety plan based on @buckshealthdept David Damsker's new #COVID19 guidelines. 1/5
The armed militia/paramilitary group is trying to brand this act of intimidation in #BucksCounty #PA01 as "family fun" & a "celebration." According to the flyer the event is co-hosted with Parents of @CBSDSchools, which one could assume are from the #reopen, anti-mask bunch. 2/5
This "family fun" armed militia/paramilitary group also offers to its shock troops, I mean members, discounts for Ballistic helmets "ideal" for law enforcement, military and private security contractors. Why would they need these? #BucksCounty #PA01 #extremism 3/5

BIG NEWS: We're excited to announce that with the release of Pennsylvania, Daily Kos Elections now has the 2020 presidential results complete for all 435 congressional districts in America! dailykos.com/stories/2021/2…
With PA complete, we now know that Biden carried 224 congressional districts while Donald Trump prevailed in 211. You can find the results for each seat here dailykos.com/stories/2012/1…
Seven Democrats hold seats that Trump won while nine Republicans represents districts that went for Biden. PA is the one state home to both a “Biden-Republican” and a “Trump-Democrat." #PA01 #PA08

Based on a variety of number-crunching sources, esp. @DKElections, it looks like there were at most 16 districts out of 435 that split their tickets between president/House in '20 - likely an all-time low.

For perspective, there were 83 such districts in '08 and 35 in '16.
Biden/R districts (9):

#CA21 Valadao
#CA25 Garcia
#CA39 Kim
#CA48 Steel
#FL27 Salazar
#NE02 Bacon
#NY24 Katko
#PA01 Fitzpatrick
#TX24 Van Duyne

Trump/D districts (7/8?):

#IL17 Bustos
#IA03 Axne
#ME02 Golden
#MI08 Slotkin
#NJ03 Kim
#NY22 Brindisi (?)
#PA08 Cartwright
#WI03 Kind
Correction to first tweet: at most 17, if Brindisi (D) prevails in #NY22. Would still be less than half of the 35 in 2016.

Walk down 2019 memory lane in #PA01. This was back when @RepBrianFitz was supporting #ProudBoys leader EnriqueTarrio's plea to crackdown on antifa as a "domestic terrorist organization": Tarrio had failed online petition; Fitzpatrick SENT A LETTER ADDRESSED TO ROGUE AG BILL BARR
This👇🏾 letter that #FakeModerate #PA01 @RepBrianFitz sent to BillBarr on July 17, 2019 (just weeks before #ProudBoys leader Enrique Tarrio's antifa petition failed), keeping hope alive for ProudBoys everywhere to live &fight another day!
At the time #PA01's @RepBrianFitz *proudly* released his antifa attack letter to AG Barr, far right hack @SenTedCruz was also making his attack via the Senate through hopeless legislative bill. Here, Cruz doing promo w #ProudBoys Tarrio

Former FBI @RepBrianFitz is a #TrumpEnabler & part of the "militant wing of the Republican Party" who attracted #ProudBoys to rally outside his #PA01 office last Dec.

He gifted #WhiteNationalists with an official letter to BillBarr/DoJ in 2019 demanding a crackdown on antifa.
Top Trump/@RepBrianFitz donor 💰 Jim Worthington & Dean Malik, along with Proud Boy Zach (+ other unnamed Proud Boys) were all together at the proTrump counter-protest to impeachment outside Fitzpatrick's #PA01 office, Dec 2019.

This is the #greenwashing sound @RepBrianFitz makes to #PA01 when he is trying to avoid controversy because

👎🏾he won't say he doesn't support #StandDownStandBy Trump, and

👎🏾he is working with Bill Barr to crack down on antifa instead of deadly #WhiteNationalist violence
Here is #PA01's @RepBrianFitz's antifa crackdown letter from July 2019, *long* before any of the coordinated messaging and crackdown from Barr's DoJ and the Trump admin started:
#PA01: In a total contradiction of @RepBrianFitz's claim that his action (above☝️🏾) would "protect journalists", it was #ProudBoys/#WhiteNationalists--and "local police"❗️- who were harassing and physically attacking #journalists just days ago in Portland.

When CPA @RepBrianFitz was in 2017's #GOP-run House, their tax overhaul package totally erased even the meagre $250 tax credit for teacher out-of-pocket classroom expenses.

It eventually got restored by the time the sausage was made in the #GOPTaxScam.

#BriansSausage #PA01
This was the GOP House version of the #GOPTaxScam that #PA01's @RepBrianFitz voted "YES" to, before changes were made in the Senate.

🦠There was a recent article about Charlie Kirk's TPUSA paying teens 💵 to post his messaging on social media.

In #PA01, there is a TPUSA chapter in @PennridgeSD. Some of this TPUSA club's postings parrots Charlie Kirk on #COVID19 disinformation (threading more below, shortly)
TPUSA has a proTrump affiliate @/TrumpStudents which is why there are close ties between the Trump family & Charlie Kirk. Here, an effort to downplay COVID19 by casting doubt on infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci in order to elevate Trump. #PA01

And again. @PennridgeHS's TPUSA chapter. Discrediting science, spreading doubt and fear about #COVID19 in #PA01. At the behest of Charlie Kirk and Trump.
