#PAMFAM #PAM My Sunday Revelations

Like many of journey started in 2017 looking for answers & truth.
Today we rejoice in knowing our democracy stands...

Good people who fought hard, who awakened to truth of where we were wasn't good.

We rose up to push back the darkness that befell on us these last 4 years.

It changed all of us, it changed me.
The fight was much bigger...more than I could have ever imagined...nor did I want.

I knew inside after Christmas of 2016...something changed, something shifted...not knowing what. I was recovering from the flu in January, 2017...Sick since Christmas.

Silent no more...

Images From the Past 24 Hours…

#PAMFAM #PAM Mourning

This week we mourn our 100,000 + dead as a result of covid.

We mourn the men & women who gave all for their service & sacrifice to our country.

We mourn the tragic & senseless death of George Floyd & all who have lost their lives to senseless violence.
We mourn & grieve for the lives we lost & also for the lack of empathy, compassion & sympathy from a failed administration that doesn't care about American lives...only profit, power & their bottom line.
We have to do better, we have to care what happens to each other & our communities. We have to recognize what's binding our hearts & minds with hatred, fear & division towards another human being & fix it.

🗳️#PAMFAM #PAM🗳️ I voted for our Democracy.

I'm so thankful I voted early in my primary...normally I wouldn't be voting until June, however it was changed.

I wish there were some magic words, some epiphany that could help voters make a wise choice.
When I casted my ballot a week ago, I didn't just think of myself, I made my decision who will be the best leader, to restore & protect our democracy, who will serve the people, not themselves, who will reverse the damage from the last 4 years healing our people & country.
I thought of my family, my community & my country, all of us. I agonized for weeks over my decision as I know we have this one chance to fix, to restore & to build a better future for all of us...we all have needs, but no one will benefit if we don't choose wisely.

Barr Installs Outside Prosecutor to Review Case Against Flynn

Graham asks AG Barr to make witnesses available for probe into “Crossfire Hurricane” & “FISA”

Yes, it looks like Barr can’t stop pending prosecutions, so they are seeking to dirty up the Mueller inv’n.

Barr has sent outside prosecutors to review politically sensitive cases.

The outside prosecutors have begun grilling line prosecutors in the DC office about various cases — some public, some not — including inv steps, prosecutorial actions and why they took them.

📌The review is highly unusual & could trigger more accusations of political interference by top DOJ officials into the work of career prosecutors.

Barr removed Jessie Lui & replaced her with Shea, one of his aides.

Lui had been overseeing the inv’n into McCabe

McCabe has not been charged, despite calls by Trump for him to go to prison.

“And that is the single most dangerous thing that you can do to the Department of Justice."

"I've never seen this happen, ever," said Gregory Brower. "I'd be shocked if the judge didn't order the US atty to come into ct to explain it."

James Carville: The fate of the world depends on the Democrats getting their sh*t together and winning in November.


And so far, I don’t like what I see.

And a lot of people I talk to feel the same way.

@dnc @tomperez @SpeakerPelosi

Going forward I will quote Carville. No quotes = me.

We won in 2018 b/c we stayed narrowly focused on issues near & dear to the ♥️s of American families.

To win in 2020, it is imperative we continue to focus on core issues: Wages, safety & HC: making ends meet.

Obama team’s response to Russian election interference fell short

Fears about stoking a politically charged election season w/ vocal alerts about RU’s activity created a snowball effect, b/c of PBO’s adm’s “tempered”response to the RU’s attack on the 2016 elex.

📌Thus ‘tempered” response ultimately allowed the Russian campaign to proliferate relatively unchecked.

📌Part of the problem was an incomplete understanding of the scope of the effort, and a delay in definitively attributing the incursions to Russia.

The extent to which Russia “could target & manipulate election systems” was “unknown” at the time, as was the scope of the threat, b/c the adm had a “bifurcated” approach to RU, treating its cyber and geopolitical capacities “as separate issues until August 2016.”

Arron Banks Boasted of WikiLeaks Backchannel after Farage’s secret meeting with Assange.

Cambridge Analytica involved in the Brexit referendum, lobbying efforts in the U.S. on behalf of a foreign power, & breach of data-protection law by pro-Brexit/Trump campaigners.

Banks also ‘joked’ about being a “full agent” of the RU state a couple of weeks after Trump was elected president.

Farage may have been used as a conduit between the WH and WikiLeaks, which the CIA has described as a “hostile intelligence service” aided by Russia.

Two weeks after meeting Trump in D.C. in Feb 2017, Farage was spotted leaving Ecuador’s embassy

First, this shows that Trump’s chief counsel for his impeachment defense, Pat Cipollone, might have been a fact witness to the very corrupt scheme.

In May, in the Oval Oval Trump directed Bolton, to help with his pressure campaign to gin up damaging info on DEMs from UKR officials

Mulvaney, Giuliani & the WH counsel, Pat A. Cipollone, who is now leading Trump’s impeachment defense, attended the meeting.

The Tau of Rose Colored Glasses.

A thread about the pros and cons of truth.
Yesterday, psychopath and war crimer Edward Gallagher put out a video doxxing fellow SEALS by name, face and in one case, unit. He concluded with the tag line "the truth is coming."
Ponder that use of the word "truth." It is probably literally accurate, but it is deeply cynical and morally/legally wrong. Gallagher was roundly condemned - but not for lying. (3 cheers to twitter that I did not see a single person repost the vid that contained the dox!).

During a convo in Aug w/ Trump, Bolton mentioned his concern over the delay of the $391M in congressionally appropriated assistance to Ukraine as a deadline neared to send the money.

Trump: No aid to UKR until they agree to give him materials re inv’ns he sought.

Specifically Trump preferred sending no assistance to Ukraine until officials had turned over all materials they had about the Russia inv’n related to Biden & supporters of HRC in Ukraine,

Trump was at odds with his senior national security officials

Per Bolton, Pompeo & Esper joined him in pressing Trump to release the aid in the weeks leading up to the Aug meeting.

Bolton says he talked to Barr & Pompeo abt Giuliani.

Pompeo admitted to Bolton last spring that Giuliani’s claims abt Yovanovitch, had no basis.
