These concerned residents of LAUSD and Temecula School District (in CA) spoke with me today about recent far right attacks against their public schools. In Temecula, a far right pastor (who has hosted MTG at his church) recently installed 6 people on 3 school boards. 1/

ON STAND NOW at Proud Boys trial as defense witness: S. Fla. rabbi Former Proud Boy George Meza. Meza on his exit: 'We in some way turned on each other and I was voted out of the club.' But generally presenting a flattering view of Proud Boys & their ideology
Meza says Proud Boys rules barred those 'currently identified' as white nationalists. They're kicked out 'or they're supposed to be,' he says
More Meza: 'The average minority, the average foreigner felt very comfortable around the proud boys because we put our lives in danger to protect them.'

I’ve been trying to figure this out. And finally an answer. It was at the Dec 2018 American Priority Conference that Proud Boys Enrique Tarrio and Joe Biggs rubbed elbows w/ Sarah Huckabee Sanders and KellyAnne Conway. 1/ Image

3/ So KellyAnne Conway & Sarah Huckabee Sanders mugged for the camera at a conference w/ the Proud Boys about 2 months AFTER the big assault initiated by the Proud Boys in New York in Oct 2018. The GOP embraces domestic terrorism.… Image

We can’t say it better than @Penn_State on the speaker controversy over #ProudBoys founder Gavin McInnes:

“As a recognized student organization, Uncensored America has the undeniable constitutional right to sponsor this presentation on our campus.” /1…
All Penn State student groups have the right to invite speakers to campus and use university resources for expressive events.

(See FIRE’s Model Policy for Allocating Student Fees. TLDR: Universities must allocate them in a viewpoint-neutral manner.) /2…
We encourage students who object to McInnes’ views to use their own #1A rights to peacefully protest, listen to his message and ask tough questions during Q&A, or ignore him.

These are far better alternatives to censorship — which undercuts everyone’s expressive freedoms. /3

#EspionageAct [doesn’t] mention classification at all. It talks about a specific type of information: national defense… The real question is, why would Trump WANT to declassify secrets that could harm the U.S.?”

Other shattering testimony:
- The 12/18 meeting #TFG held in #OvalOffice with #SidneyPowell, #MikeFlynn, #Giuliani, & aides was “unhinged”-loud screaming, name-calling, almost coming to fisticuffs.
- They were there to discuss draft order to seize voting machines in key states.
- It was revealed at 12/18 meeting that #Trump had named #SidneyPowell as special counsel to prosecute cases related to the voting machines. Supposedly gave her a “security clearance.”

Mark Meadows: [Trump] doesn't want to do anything, Pat.

Pat: Mark, something needs to be done or people are going to die and the blood is going to be on your f—ing hands.

Liz Cheney: The night before #January6th, President* Trump instructed Mark Meadows to contact both Roger Stone and Michael Flynn regarding what would play out the next day.

#CassidyHutchinson: That’s correct. That is my understanding.

Cheney: Did Rudy Giuliani [seek a] pardon related to January 6?
Cassidy Hutchinson: He did.
LC: Did Mark Meadows ever indicate that he was interested in receiving a Presidential pardon related to #January6th?
CH: Mr Meadows did seek that pardon. Yes ma’am.

“President* Trump…followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani—to just claim he won and insist the vote counting stop. To falsely claim that everything was fraudulent… Millions of Americans believed him.”

“The Trump campaign knew these claims of voter fraud were false; yet, they continued to barrage small dollar donors, encouraging them to donate to ‘The Official Election Defense Fund.’ @January6thCmte discovered NO SUCH FUND EXISTED.”

“I said to him: ‘Are you out of your f—ing mind?’ I said, ‘I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth from now on: ORDERLY TRANSITION.’”

“I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen…which I told [Donald Trump] was bullshit… The incumbent [cannot] stay in power based on its view unsupported by specific evidence there was fraud in the election.” Bill Barr
#January6thCommittee: “Did that affect your perspective about the election when Attorney General Barr made that statement?”

Ivanka Trump: “It affected my perspective. I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying.”

“Any legal jargon you hear about seditious conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, and conspiracy to defraud the United States — all boils down to this: January 6th was the culmination of an attempted coup.”

It was easier for a 13-year-old boy to buy a rifle from a private seller at a gun show than to buy beer, cigarettes, porn, and lottery tickets. (🎥:#RealSports 2014)

Gun show loopholes still exist.
