I do NOT adhere to the [DS] #LeftRightDichotomy #DivideAndConquer #HegelianDialectic BULLSHIT so I’m pleased to be able to follow a kind, sensible, #Democrat-professed #HumanBeing.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT ALL OF MY FOLLOWERS DO LIKEWISE & FOLLOW THIS LOVELY WOMAN.

1/ @voiceofsandiego suspects @SDDistAtty @SummerStephan may be leaving the #Republican Party. Why? Read her rambling response: bit.ly/DA_Defects_Exh…

What is clear: #SanDiego is full of ambitious politicians who change party, office and/or districts to stay in/run for office.
2/ Related: 2 of 3 recent Chairs of @sandiegodems were "reformed" #Republicans

They changed their party registration then worked against #progressives when they run against #moderates. Women of color were especially impacted by moderate party policies & actions in 2018
3/ @sandiegodems used "member communication" $ to attack @CD4Monica @vivianmorenoSD in their elections

Both women won- despite institutional #Democrat opposition. Hopefully this teaches local Democrats about the power & need for #diversity & representation in #SanDiego politics

Why aren't Americans taking about the foreign influence in the US government that continues to send our men and woman to fight immoral wars?

#Trump when he campaigned for president, before he decided to let Adelson fund his campain!

Adelson was one of the biggest donors to Trumps presidential campain. Adelsons company saved 670 million dollars from the massive republican tax break. Adelson did not support the Iran deal & wanted the US embassy moved to Jerusalem.

Adelson has a direct line to #potus!

Adelson has private in-person meetings & phone conversations about once a month with #Trump!

Adelson used his access to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and cut aid to Palestinians.

Color me shocked.

“The GOP memo falsely pinned the El Paso massacre and other notable mass shootings on the left.”

tampabay.com/florida-politi…
Article continued:
Congressional Republicans recently circulated talking points on gun violence that falsely described the El Paso massacre and other mass shootings as “violence from the left.”
A document obtained by the Tampa Bay Times and sent by #HouseRepublicans provides a framework for how to respond to anticipated questions like, “Why won’t you pass legislation to close the ‘gun show loophole’ in federal law?” and “Why shouldn’t we ban high-capacity magazines?"

10 years ago #DHS sent American law enforcement agencies an intelligence briefing warning of a rising threat of #domestic #RightWing #extremism, including #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.

Military #veterans returning from #Iraq & #Afghanistan, would be attractive #targets for #recruitment, #Republican #politicians & #conservativepundits reacted with outrage & demanded a retraction. The small team of domestic terrorism analysts who had produced report was disbanded
and analysts were reassigned to study #Muslim #extremism, according to Daryl Johnson, the career federal intelligence analyst who had led the team, By the next year, Johnson had been forced out of the #DHS altogether..

Some strong-ish #TuesdayThoughts about the state of our electorate -- and one state in particular: The battle-grounder, #Wisconsin

The Badger State has been gerrymandered to shreds by the anti-American #GOPTraitors

Think that's an overstatement?

Consider this

👇🏽 (thread)
2)

In the 2018 Midterms, #Democrats won EVERY statewide election, yet because of gerrymandering lost 63 of the 99 state assembly races.

THINK ABOUT THAT!
3)

When Republicans redrew the map in 2011, the numbers show that the current map is even far more tilted toward the GOP than the previous map — and all but ensures Republican control of the state Assembly in “good” years or “bad” for the GOP.

THINK ABOUT THIS!

@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN #Israel is a theocratic apartheid military police state.

People are segregated and one segment of people are reduced to living in dire conditions, suffer human rights abuses and abject poverty. They are beaten back by the military when trying to assert their freedom.
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN Why we would support ANY theocracy I have no idea, but we also support #SaudiArabia, a theocratic monarchy.

It doesn't make sense, if we support theocracies, why isn't #Iran our ally? Did we have to pick a side and decide to go with Sunnis instead of Shiites?
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN If the United States separates Church and State according to our constitution, and is devoted to promoting democracy worldwide, we should not be ignoring our values in order to create alliances. If they want to be allies, these countries can change

Americans are once again allowing the Republican and Democrat party divide us over race, when in fact race is not the issue! Please look at the foreign policies these woman support, and the policies they do not support! This is not about race & we must address the real issues!
@AyannaPressley, @RashidaTlaib, @IlhanMN, @AOC.

I ask for Americans to please look at the human policies these woman are addressing. I ask Americans to actually research the US Foreign Policy that causes massive Refugees and Endless War.
I ask Americans to look at who is funding the election campaigns of their representatives. I ask Americans to question why we are continously at war, when it does not benefit the United States! I ask Americans to research the foreign influence that controls US policy!

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

#Republican students @Portland_State hosted racist Alt-Right troll Mike Mahoney, who was hired by Unite the Right speaker and neo-Nazi troll Baked Alaska to work for Milo Yiannopoulos, but had to be monitored due to his racist and anti-Semitic posts. rosecityantifa.org/articles/mike-…
According to report from @RoseCityAntifa, Mahoney was given the #Milkshake treatment.
An expose by Buzzfeed news on Milo and his deep connections to those in the Alt-Right and neo-Nazi scene first put a spotlight on Mahoney. buzzfeednews.com/article/joseph…

Trump & the Republicans inhumane treatment of people seeking asylum then separating the children from their parents and throwing them into separate concentration camps possibly never seeing them again continues. They're taking newborns from moms 6/1/2019😢
Trump and his administration are punishing good hearted people for helping people in need..
#republican @GOP and #Trump administration
are packing migrants seeking asylum in El Paso like they're sardines.
They just don't care!

Very curious & incredibly coincidental that Rep. Justin Amash is 1st #Republican to call 4 #impeachment and represents the district in Michigan that includes Spectrum Health and the DeVos family. Remember the weird Trump-Alfa Bank comms #countryoverparty
newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…
The renewed interest in this weird now suggested Tor encrypted comms between a Trump controlled server, Alfa Bank in Russia, Spectrum Health and a number of other less frequent IPs, is from a recent FOIA request that included Christopher Steele notes wonkette.com/did-paul-manaf…
Have to say the FOIA requests & lawsuits resulting in discovery are not working well 4 groups trying to prove this is a witch hunt. Remember the Gubarev Webzilla lawsuit against Buzzfeed? Only helped to further validate the Steele Dossier nytimes.com/2019/03/14/us/…

The Poway synagogue shooter said he hated Jews for their role in "cultural Marxism". So, who spread the conspiracy theory concerning "cultural Marxism", which claims it's a Jewish conspiracy against Western Civilization?

Who popularized that? Donald Trump knows the man...
2) I revisit this every few months, when a new act of foreign or domestic terrorism happens and the perpetrator cites "cultural Marxism" as a reason. Back in '016 I wrote this piece which listed some of the then-current examples. 4thgenwar.wordpress.com/2016/07/11/tru… There are many more now.
3) "cultural Marxism" is now the grand unifying narrative for the hard, fascist & neo-Nazi right. It does the same work as did the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" forgery did, a century ago, to inspire Hitler & his Nazis. In '016 a book with a section on "cultural Marxism" was

On Election Day 2016, I was at the @NCGOP viewing party in downtown Raleigh. I was there "on assignment" during my first semester earning my master's in reporting at @UNCMJschool.

The #MuellerReport explains part of what I saw that night. 1/13
After it was clear that Trump won the presidency, all attention turned to the state race. It was too close to call. @DallasWoodhouse got on stage to update the audience. McCrory did not make an appearance. 2/13
Woodhouse said they were still waiting on results from #Durham, which had extended its polling hours due to glitches w/ the electronic polling books. @VRelection was the company providing the electronic poll books. newsobserver.com/news/local/cou… 3/13

🔥WOW. #Iowa’s longest serving #Republican state legislator *left* the @GOP, saying he could no longer support @realDonaldTrump as the @GOP’s standard-bearer due to his “unacceptable behavior.”

"If this is the new normal, I want no part of it.”

wapo.st/2XJupVJ
Trump sets “a poor example for the nation & particularly for our children by personally insulting, often in a crude & juvenile fashion, those who disagree with him, being a bully at a time when we’re attempting to discourage bullying,”
“(Trump’s) actions have coarsened political discourse, have resulted in unprecedented divisiveness and have created an atmosphere that is a breeding ground for hateful rhetoric and actions...”🤬

Have a look at how Big Tech (Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Uber and many others) lobbies Congress.
1⃣They loved the #Republican “tax reform” scam. See 2017 “victories.” Oy.⬇️
2⃣Their #climate priority is “advanced energy solutions.” I’m working on this, passing #carboncapture and nuclear innovation bills, but nobody thinks that’s close to enough. Go big, this ain’t.

If NAM is serious, then it needs to go beyond the new #Republican innovation talking point and support legislation to reduce emissions on the scale the science says is necessary. politico.com/magazine/story…
BTW “Innovation” is the new fossil fuel phony talking point — as the industry fights against the policies that would launch such innovation: it’s as phony as “hoax,” as phony as “science not settled,” as phony as “climate always changes,” as phony as “too costly to fix.”
When one lie collapses, they fall back to the next.

There is one takeaway from this vote, and it is that #Republicans are still doing the bidding of the fossil fuel industry.
Their cartoon version of the #GreenNewDeal was cooked up by the Koch brothers.
The instruction to have this vote came from the fossil-fuel-friendly @WSJopinion.

The industry that funds their Party is not willing to support a solution to the single greatest challenge of our time, and wants this stunt instead.
