This is an editorial screed against @BernieSanders and progressives masquerading as a news story. What they mean is that the American people have gotten off their leash and will not be whistled back to crouch politely at the feet of the elite. nytimes.com/2019/03/09/us/…
The American working class consensus is that everyone should have healthcare, that the rich should pay more taxes instead of us, that jobs should be created ending pollution, instead of creating it, and that free trade shouldn’t be a free ride for corporate flight from the USA.
I guess the @NYTimes forgot that #HillaryClinton lost #Michigan, #Ohio, and #Pennsylvania. The real American consensus is that the leaders the Times have chosen for us suck. nytimes.com/2019/03/09/us/…

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

We need to pay attention to--and work to end--the use of solitary confinement. It is there, in the long-term lockdowns & sensory deprivation conditions that daily house upwards of 100,000 people in US, where the cruel endgame of American punishment is made clear. 1/
Solitary has always been a part of American prisons. It was central to the Quaker notion of "penitentiaries," only instead of penitence isolation led people to mental & physical decay. As well as rebellion & romance. See @activisthistory upenn.edu/pennpress/book… 2/
Isolation has long been the weapon of abuse prison systems use to punish dissidents, from people engaged in political protest to those who violate prison rules of segregation and compulsory (but institutionally prohibited) heterosexuality. E.g. press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book…

✅Protect abortion rights.
And more. 2/6

Got to door at #wilkesbarre #PATrumpRally
Got turned AWAY! Venue at capacity! 1,000’s of ticket holders told to leave. No screens or speakers to hear speech. SAD!
Very disappointed. If nothing else #Trump2020 more popular than ever
#wwg1wga #Qanon #WhoIsQ #Trump #Pennsylvania
Organization could have been better. Video screen outside or audio would have helped. All those turned away just wanted to HEAR the speech at that point. (Bad signal there - no streaming avail) Also nobody came out to tell us what was happening. Having “tickets” meant nothing.
I drove two hours to get there. And waited outside for two hours. Plan ahead if you’re going to a rally! Get there EARLY!!
