Federal prosecutors indict a #Russian🇷🇺woman alleged to be the chief accountant of an *ONGOING* Kremlin campaign to influence 2018 ELECTIONS in the US & EU (including troll farm Internet Research Agency) financed by "Putin's Chef," Yevgeniy Prigozhin.🤬

cnn.com/2018/10/19/pol…
One major #Russian🇷🇺social-media theme was to exploit white supremacy👉🏼trolling NFL protests against #racist policing, #immigration, the Confederate flag & “the #Charlottesville ‘Unite The Right’ rally” that killed Heather Heyer in Aug'17.

Goal: INFLAME and DIVIDE US.🤬
Pivoting off a piece by "right-wing blowhard" Michael Savage, the #Russians🇷🇺 sought to “forcefully support” Savage’s message that “any attempt to remove Trump is a direct path to **civil war** in the US."😳

#Kavanaugh talked about joining a “team of nine.” In fact, he joins a team of five that reliably delivers big wins for the #Republican interests that had such a big role in his selection and confirmation.

Perhaps Roberts can then explain the 73 decisions in which he led the #Republican appointees to deliver 5-4 partisan victories serving powerful R interests. 73 is a lot. The pattern is damning. Talking about independence doesn’t cut it, not w that record. politico.com/story/2018/10/…
Happy talk is one thing.

The test will be what he does about the 73-decision partisan romp his “Roberts 5” took the Court on, in service to big #Republican interests. That’s a little hard to explain as “balls and strikes.”

Let’s set the record straight:

Democrats believe that health care is a right for all Americans, not a privilege for the few.

That is why they spearheaded the passage of the historic Affordable Care Act in 2010.

#ProtectOurCare
FACT:

Under Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats, more than 5 million seniors have saved over $3 billion on the crippling cost of prescription drugs.

#ProtectOurCare
FACT:

Thanks to Speaker Pelosi and Democrats, over 100 million Americans are no longer slapped with a lifetime limit on their coverage;

130 million more, including 17 million children, are no longer denied coverage for having a pre-existing condition.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

Big #Republican influencers were there at the beginning, the funders behind the organization called the @FedSoc that selected #Kavanaugh.

(Per White House itself, #FederalistSociety was “insourced” to White House for this.)
Big #Republican influencers were there after selection, behind the multi-million #darkmoney campaign to pressure Senators on #Kavanaugh.
Big #Republican influencers loomed over the Senate during hearings and votes, and are ecstatic today claiming their prize.

I wrote a long scholarly bio of Sandra Day O'Connor and RBG, Sisters in Law. Although most of the attention has been focused on Ginsburg, actually SOC tells the more relevant story in today's #Kavanaugh times. 1/
2/ SOC was always an odd fit; a symbolic powerhouse first woman on the Supreme Court, or the FWOTSC, as she called herself. She was technically supportive of abortion rights and voting w/ RBG on most women's cases at #SCOTUS, including in 1986 a vote for harassment victim Vinson
3/ but SOC was also a lifelong #Republican and an operative at that -- committeewoman, nominated to her first office by the #GOP committee, mentored by Barry Goldwater, William Rehnquist and Warren Burger were her sponsors on the #SCOTUS.

This morning, the President said it is up to Dr. Blasey Ford to convince him she is telling the truth. That is preposterous. Her story is credible: it is rich in remembered detail, corresponds to facts that are known, and was told to others years before.
.@realDonaldTrump and @SenateGOP should follow protocol and order the @FBI to complete its background investigation as to this claim. This process has been off the rails for a long time now, but the last 24 hours signal a new low. medium.com/senator-sheldo…
Dr. Ford is incredibly brave & very credible. Her story is rich in remembered detail, corresponds to facts that are known, and was told to others years before.

TRANSFERAL OF BLAME.

This thread is to cover #Hypocrisy by #Democrats and their #Racist projections on #Conservatives that MANY PEOPLE do not see.

This is the heart of the #WalkAway movement.
This has been their way since day one.
Transferal of blame.

#MAGA #QAnon #WWG1WGA
We should start where it mattered the MOST. The #CivilWar Era.
The #Democrats did NOT want slaves to have rights. They wanted to keep these black men and women as PROPERTY. They didn't want them to be able to vote. They were "property" and "commodities".

#WalkAway #MAGA #QAnon
A more radical arm of the #DemocraticParty known as the "Ku Klux Klan" or #KKK were known for threatening, harming, and even killing FREE black men and women. Historians still debate whether the KKK's original grassroots movement is what lead to the #CivilWar.

Constitutional Decay: The fundamental challenge to American democracy.

Want to protect and defend the #Constitution? Then stop hoping to paper over its rot with amendments: the framework of our nation requires a rebuild. Thread:

1/46
In sum: While its values still hold, much of the detail in the world’s oldest living constitution is increasingly incompatible with reality. This harms America by subjecting modern solutions to 18th century thinking. The #Constitution needs major revisions within a decade. 2/
America faces multiple domestic political problems. Underlying many, if not all of them, is a structural problem that will only become more severe with time, and may ultimately threaten our very nationhood. 3/

The #SupremeCourt gives too many indications of having been captured by the far right. In case after case, the five #Republican-appointed justices band together with no Democratic appointee, and over 90 percent of the time deliver huge wins for Republican and corporate interests
That pattern leaves Americans to wonder which of their rights, freedoms, and protections the Roberts Court may sign away next.
During his hearings, #Kavanaugh could have pledged to help buck that trend, and reassured those with pre-existing conditions, women, consumers, workers, vulnerable communities, or victims of pollution.

Why is @DonnaShalala running for Congress in #Miami as a Democrat after she supported a generation of Republican lawmakers to turn Florida's public education system into a charter school paradise while hurting unions? #FL27

I call it: Donna Does Republican Donations

Part 1/2
Shalala donated to some of #Florida's WORST #Republican state lawmakers including bigots, tax cheats, adulterers an to employees of the state's largest charter school who voted to expand that school's reach!

She said it was a quid pro quo to get benefits for UM.
