There is no Republican Party. It has become a dangerous cult in the thrall of a narcissistic, delusional, dictator wannabe. The actions of the #RNC in censuring Cheney & Kinzinger shows a complete contempt for the rule of law and the very real threat January 6th posed to our (1/3
democracy. For the Wyoming #GOP to support a challenge to Cheney is despicable when she is engaged in an important effort to find the truth about an effort to overthrow an election. As for those members of Congress who speak up behind closed doors yet refuse to condemn these (2/3
actions publicly, they are enablers who have neglected their oaths of office. They should know better; to say they have to keep their heads down in order to continue to do their jobs is a cop out. Oh to return to the GOP's roots as a principled party that worked for America.(3/3)

News Analysis🔎The post-#Election push to pressure President Trump to concede, despite numerous credible allegations of #VoterFraud and ongoing legal challenges, is the culmination of a 4-year-long campaign against him. (Thread👇)…
This campaign started in 2016 when the #FBI launched a politically motivated investigation of his campaign. During his subsequent 4 years in office, there have been consistent efforts to remove him from office.
#Infographic: an overview of some of the main efforts made against the sitting @POTUS.

This is an issue that transcends party lines, as it is not only an assault on Trump, but an assault on the office of the presidency, and with it, an assault on the foundation of America.

The Epoch Times National Poll was conducted by Big Data Poll and interviewed 2,169 likely #Voters nationwide sourced via voter file-verified online survey panels from Aug. 26 to Aug. 30, 2020.

Here were the findings (Thread👇)…
“Mr. Biden’s edge with seniors has slipped, and the president is outperforming his minority vote share from 2016 by a modest but statistically significant degree.”

#JoeBiden holds a potentially dwindling lead over President Trump, and voters expect the incumbent to win.
#Biden leads among female voters 49% compared to Trump at 35%, while Trump leads with male voters 46% to 41%.

In rural America, where #Voters are currently the most enthusiastic about voting in November, the president leads 52% to 36%.

#RNC was "explicitly told beforehand" both by #LeonardCohen's estate & company that licenses "Hallelujah" that it didn't have the right to use the song. Trump played it twice on the final night anyway. Trump takes what he wants. To hell with YOUR rights.…
#LeonardCohen's estate "surprised & dismayed" Trump played "Hallelujah" after he was denied the right to use it & brazenly attempted to "exploit in such an egregious manner" 1 of Cohen's "most important songs."

They're Canadian. No American's surprised & 40% aren't dismayed.
Anyone think I'm crazy to assume Trump played #LeonardCohen's "Hallelujah" (despite being denied the right to play it) because Kate McKinnon played it dressed as Hillary as the cold open for #SNL's 1st show after he won?

Anyone? Anyone?

#Independents & #progressives who aren't sure they're going to #VoteBiden should spend 20 mins finding out what's really at stake from 3 top (former) #Republican strategists. Their answer is EVERYTHING. /thread…
@SteveSchmidtSES 1>#Republicans have no platform. Literally. They are officially a cult of personality.

2>#RNC made lawless use of the people's house, the most powerful symbol of the state. Trump's in effect saying he IS the state, he IS the law.
Schmidt: 3>Trump campaign & #RNC know using the #WhiteHouse & WH staffers for the convention is illegal & did it anyway. Trump doesn't just demand loyalty. He demands his staff break the law as proof that HE is the law. "The light's gone from flashing yellow to flashing red."

1/ THEAD: Immediately after Trump introduces and thanks Pence at the #RNC, Pence stands up and pulls his suit jacket together. This is a protective, beta, and low-confidence reaction by a man who has been Vice President for almost 4 years.

#BodyLanguageExpert #BodyLanguage Image
2/ As Pence stands up and waves, his facial expression is an amalgam of:

• Regret
• Contempt Image
3/ His face then morphs into a mixture of:

• Anger
• Regret Image

In retrospect, what I’ll remember most from this week’s #RNC is just how insanely low the bar is for Republicans. From Nikki Haley and Tim Scott to Ivanka and Melania Trump, simply stringing together a coherent sentence results in 96 fluff pieces written about a change in tone.
Was the whole thing nothing more than a poorly-executed attempt to scare white people into voting for Republicans? Yes, of course that’s what it was. That’s all the GOP has had to offer since 1968. Sadly, it’s been a winning strategy.
And while the tide is certainly shifting towards progressives and progressive policies, Donald Trump can ABSOLUTELY still win this.

Ignore what the national polls and the battleground polls are telling you.

Vote like your vote is THE VOTE that will make the difference. 🇺🇸

President @realDonaldTrump:

"My fellow Americans, tonight, with a heart full of gratitude and boundless optimism, I profoundly accept this nomination for president of the United States."

President @realDonaldTrump:

"What united generations past was an unshakeable confidence in America’s destiny and an unbreakable faith in the American people... This towering American Spirit has prevailed over every challenge and lifted us to the summit of human endeavor."
"How can the Democrat party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country?"

McConnell used his #RNC speech to defend the work of his GOP caucus and argue against statehood for D.C.

(The House approved legislation to grant statehood two months ago — the first time either chamber agreed to give congressional representation to the nation’s capital)
McConnell’s remarks on Thursday, which aired less than an hour before Trump’s convention acceptance speech, come as his Republican Senate majority remains imperiled ahead of November — in part because of Trump’s sagging political prospects…
The address by McConnell also came despite his campaign spokesperson initially saying last week that he would not have a speaking role at the #RNCConvention. A campaign source later told USA Today that McConnell would in fact submit a taped speech…

.@JoeBiden just repeated the Charlottesville "very fine people" hoax on live TV on @MSNBC. @mitchellreports did not correct him.

@JackBrewerBSI specifically called out this hoax as a lie at the #RNC last night.

Shame on @mitchellreports and @NBC for perpetrating a race hoax.
The crazy thing is how @JoeBiden just robotically repeats the same script about Charlottesville over and over, that stuff about “veins bulging” & all that nonsense. @mitchellreports doesn’t have the integrity to ask him to defend it. No excuse after @JackBrewerBSI called it a lie

ABRO HILO sobre la penúltima noche de la Convención Republicana, que ha sido muy interesante y con algunas sorpresas... #RNC2020Convention #convencionrepublicana #RNC #compol #USA2020 Image
1. MIke Pence se consolida como el firme sucesor de Trump. Hizo un buen discurso en el que criticó el derribo de estatuas y las protestas violentas de los últimos meses, reivindicó el mensaje de ley y orden.
2. Una monja en “prime time”. La Hermana Deirde Byrne, del Spanish Catholic Center, tiene una gran historia: cirujana, militar, misionera y monja. Fue una de las sorpresas de la noche y definió a Trump como el presidente “más provida”.

This crowd at Pence speech is small and the clapping makes it sound like a speech kicking off a campaign for city council. #RepublicanNationalConvention #RNC
If Trump has “kept his word” why does he lie so damn much, @VP? #RNCConvention #RNCConvention2020
Pence continuing the lie of Veterans Choice. What a honorable man. And in front of his mother, too. #RNCConvention

@RickSantorum @Patriot_Voices #CNN #AC360 #RNC2020 #FLOTUS Overall a GREAT night.. I agree w/@davidaxelrod the production value of #GOPConvention is.. I mean they had 2 weeks to put this together! It LOOKED - unlike these "hostage videos" that you saw during the Democratic 1/
2/ National Convention. This was a beautifully produced show. I found myself.. two hours into it.. I was like wow, I don't feel like I've been sitting here that long. That tells you something. Melania's speech, I think, is the biggest take-away from this and it was a remarkable
3/ speech. This is Donald Trump's wife.. maybe it shows you a little bit more about Donald Trump personally. He has an incredible wife who's willing to speak for herself - and she did it beautifully. I can't really remember a First Lady's speech.. I mean, obviously, Dr. Biden's

Weiter geht es mit der Analyse der #RNC, mit der Rede von Trump Jr. Anschnallen, es wird ziemlich irre. Und auch, wenn das alles lustig klingt und Humor ein coping mechanism ist, der helfen kann - wir müssen uns darüber im Klaren sein, dass sie das sehr ernst meinen.
Ohne in schlimme Wortspiele verfallen zu wollen - Trump Jr. scheint seinen Vater über-trumpen (ha, übertrumpfen... es war ein langer Tag) zu wollen. Seine Rede hätte auf einer Trump Bingo Karte alle Kästchen abhaken können.
Trump Jr. beginnt seine Rede mit einer, freundlich gesagt, revisionistischen Geschichte des Coronavirus. Vor sechs Monaten habe sich der Amerikanische Traum für so viele Mitglieder erfüllt - "And then, courtesy of the Chinese Communist Party, the virus struck."

Theseus on #RNC night 2

“Fuck mortal thought, where will it stop?
What boundary will there be for boldness and daring?
If it grows like a tumor during a man’s life
And whoever comes next is even more insanely criminal
Than the guy who came before,
....then the gods
Will have to made a second earth to hold
All the unjust and wicked people”

φεῦ τῆς βροτείας—ποῖ προβήσεται;—φρενός.

Nachdem die #RNC weltweit Fact-Checker um den Schlaf gebracht hat, werde ich in diesem Thread die wichtigsten Momente/Reden analysieren und einordnen, wie die GOP versucht, die Geschichte umzuschreiben. Festhalten tief durchatmen bitte. Sagt nicht, ich hätte euch nicht gewarnt.
Es ging los mit der RNC Vorsitzenden Ronna McDaniel. "Democrats started their convention last week with Eva Longoria, a famous Hollywood actress who played a housewife on TV. Well, I’m actually a real housewife and a mom from Michigan[...]" - hier steckt einiges drin.
Da ist zunächst der Verweis auf Hollywood, eine Anspielung auf den Vorwurf, Demokraten würden sich mit Hollywoods Glitterati schmücken, an diesen Punkt knüpfen auch viele Verschwörungsmythen an. Dann werden hier Hausfrauen speziell angesprochen - ich bin wirklich eine von euch.

Just in time for the start of the #GOPConvention, we’re back with another quiz based on our series of Convention videos.

Donald Trump's candidacy in 2016 wasn't the first time the GOP was divided by an outsider.
We look back at the 1964 RNC.
Who was the outsider Republican candidate in 1964?
Where was the 1964 Republican National Convention held?

Today's Republican party is little more than a Trump personality cult, if you ask its own operatives, pollsters, or seasons reporters like @TimAlberta. First-time voters have no idea what it means to be Republican today #RNC… Image
The president can't explain his own second-term agenda, leading many to wonder if there is one. The campaign released bullet points but no bold plans last night… #RNCConvention Image
Republicans squeezed four years of planning into four weeks — the RNC is starting in the wake of an arrest, a resignation, and a Trump family feud.… Image

What Trump is set to announce at 6pm: The FDA is to approve wider use of coronavirus survivors' blood as treatment…
While plasma treatment has been used safely against diseases from diphtheria to Ebola over the past 130 years, its track record on effectiveness is mixed. And it has not yet been proven to work against the coronavirus.
At least four former FDA chiefs have urged the agency to hold off an emergency authorization until there is clear data that plasma works.
