An intellectual Turing test is when a person on the right tries to pass for a person on the left, or vice versa. We have long observed that most rightists can pass an intellectual Turing test, and most leftists can’t
This is not because of any innate tendencies, but because the consequences of failing the test are asymmetrical. My honest views on most topics could make my professional life very difficult
Some leftists hear this and accuse me of whining, but it’s just a sober assessment of the tactical landscape. Adapt or perish. On the left, when you lose to your enemy, it's their fault for being wicked. On the right, it's yours for being careless.

1/ Let's see if we can sum this whole #KavanaughAccuser issue up:
1. @realDonaldTrump gets to choose a 2nd #SCOTUS justice in his 1st term
2. @TheDemocrats announce they will do anything to stop #Kavanugh
[cont.]
2/
3. On the eve of confirmation, a pink-pussy hat wearing, anti-Trump liberal accuses the nominee of a 36-year old 'assault' at some party that occurred at a time and place that she does not recall.
3/
4. The accusation was withheld by @SenFeinstein for months.
5. The accuser's social media, and even her yearbook, was scrubbed from the internet PRIOR to the accusation being made public.
6. The accuser immediately hires a lawyer who, herself, is a member of the #Resistance

Hi everyone! Tonight, I'll be bringing you our latest episode of #StolenValor of the #Resistance. Our guest tonight is Rick Alvarado! Or is it? We'll get back to that. But let's meet our new friend:
Rick drew my attention because of his wild claims. I thought the guy was Captain America, so we decided to take a peek behind the curtain. Let's look at some of his claims:
Here is a claim that Rick makes ALOT! 4 COMBAT tours with the Marine Corps. That's pretty hardcore right? That puts him in combat for a minimum 36 months. Wow!

THREAD: Let's talk about an interesting bot that was set up as part of a larger Russian attack on us, but recently changed its stripes:

It goes by @propornotapp, was created using infrastructure in Belgium, & has recently started following accounts we interact with. /1
It previously went by "CensoredByPropOrNot" & was an obvious attempt to legitimize Russian propaganda, delegitimize our efforts, & delegitimize related efforts broadly.

This is what it looked like before its recent rebrand: /2 web.archive.org/web/2017041509…
We expect this rebranding of "@propornotapp" will be used to pretext information from resistance members, delegitimize us & the resistance, & spread chaos & confusion amongst the allies generally.

This is what it looks like after its recent rebrand: /3 web.archive.org/web/2018091019…

A thought for Yom Kippur: just because I'm a better person than the President doesn't mean I'm a good person. 1/
It's never been easier to feel morally superior to the people running this country -- and to mistake that for evidence that I'm running my own life consistent with the standards I apply to our nation's leaders. 2/
I can't do much to govern the country, but only I can govern myself. The best #Resistance is to resist all that stands in the way of my becoming a better father, husband, son, brother, friend, and neighbor. 3/

This is important not just because it illustrates how cheap the political hit against Trump for Puerto Rico was. It illustrates how the media's partisan bias provides cover for incompetent officials and makes reform more difficult.
The media fell hook, line, and sinker for every load of crap thrown to them by Puerto Rican officials during their auditions to become #Resistance superstars. They're ALWAYS prone to letting inept Democrat officials manipulate coverage.
They did the same thing after Parkland. CNN allowed lethally incompetent public officials to stage a town hall where they shifted blame to innocent Americans concerned about their constitutional rights.

I dedicate this particular thread to Chuck Schumer, professional Wall Street and AIPAC puppet, and coward in the face of the worst Republican administration since George W. Bush. There is a good reason for that which I will get to momentarily.
There seems to be a pattern with Mr. Schumer in that he doesn't do anything to make sure the Democrats actually oppose Donald Trump like they should at every turn. Take fast tracking 15 lifetime appointment conservative judges so Democrats can go home. huffingtonpost.com/entry/senate-d…
It could have something to do with how Donald Trump used to donate to Chuck Schumer all the time, along with Trump's family, even holding campaign fundraisers for him at Mar A Lago. opensecrets.org/news/2017/09/t…

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

HOW TO LEAVE THE GOP?

It's tough. You know you're ready to leave when you vote party only or write-in so you don't betray your heart voting for somebody you don't like. It took me 3 election cycles and a lunatic to recognize that my heart wasn't in it. The GOP left me.
You've probably also been brainwashed and it's difficult to come to grips with that, and then even harder to admit it publicly. If you belive the whole "fake news" thing, you're definitely brainwashed. I was a Fox News only guy. It looks and sounds convincing.
But the morning/evening shows aren't even licensed as news. The "opinion" team has a separate boss from the actual news. CNN and MSNBC sometimes have bias, but their facts are always sourced and clearly presented. When they make a mistake, they report it. Give it a try.

When you turn NSA lawyers like this into #Resistance heroes, what you get are attempts to justify severe press freedom attacks. NYT's Pentagon Paper lawyer said: "Obama will surely pass President Richard Nixon as the worst president ever" on press freedom. nytimes.com/roomfordebate/…
Obama made several valid points yesterday. But allowing him to parade around as a defender of press freedom - when he was in fact a grave threat to it - is a huge fraud. Here's what the Committee to Protect Journalists said in its comprehensive 2013 report cpj.org/reports/2013/1…
The Obama DOJ - aside from using the Espionage Act against sources fra more than all prior administrations *combined* - threatened for years to imprison my colleague Jim Risen. In December 2016, Risen wrote this in the NYT nytimes.com/2016/12/30/opi…

1) This so called "opinion piece" has the markings of a fraud.

nytimes.com/2018/09/05/opi…
2) Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I feel compelled to say this, because I don't want to make any accusations here.
Let's just walk through the article together, and you tell me what you think.
I'm taking the perspective of a teacher here, checking a document for plagiarism.
3) If my hypothesis is accurate, then the New York Times is lying.
If my hypothesis is inaccurate, then this thread makes no difference whatsoever.

What I tweeted about earlier. This tweet from Rick Scott keeps appearing in my feed because someone likes it. Look who liked this and their profile. Look at the bio description #TheResistance. I never followed this account. I am now following it.
This is the 5th time that Rick Scott tweet appeared in my feed today. For months I told you guys about these fake #Resistance & #FBR lists. For months I kept warning you guys about how there was something not right about those threads and to be on the lookout for them.
This is why I kept saying to keep me off these lists. Was I following accounts back in the beginning, yes. Until I saw the pattern of bots and trolls many months ago. Then I started calling it out. How many of you guys followed these accounts back as well & kept doing it?

I actually think the constitutional problems presented by Trump are grave.

Our country has vested magical powers in The Word of the President. And for years, significantly bc 3,000 Americans died, we've expanded the power of The Word (abetted by many #Resistance heroes, btw).
There were always interesting questions about that. But now Trump comes on the scene, with the power of The Word. And starts issuing Presidential orders via Tweet, some he means, some he later backs off on. We treated it as a joke but bc of the power of The Word, it's not a joke.
We've literally rolled out a whole new jurisprudence about whether The Word issued by Tweet is legally binding, whether it's before the election or after, whether it happened during Executive Time or not.

@ombudsman4truth @nytopinion @jimdao @maggieNYT @maureendowd OF COURSE they did.

'I work for a secret John McCain-loving resistance group at the highest levels of the administration, so I decided to risk it all by writing an anonymous op-ed for the @nytopinion '

Only #FakeNews frauds at @nytimes could invent such a ridiculous scenario.
@ombudsman4truth @nytopinion @jimdao @maggieNYT @maureendowd @nytimes I mean, come on.

It's about the most absurd scenario you could imagine.

Assume it was true. If so, it's an admission of failure. Because almost every policy decision by Trump is the OPPOSITE of what McCain, the new liberal hero, would have done.
@ombudsman4truth @nytopinion @jimdao @maggieNYT @maureendowd @nytimes We are supposed to believe that these McCain acolytes are the ones actually running the administration.

One problem.

None of the policies these resistards have supposedly pushed past Trump, would have been supported by McCain.

It's a dead giveaway that the article is garbage.

We believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic," the piece reads.

The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.
I would know. I am one of them.
#Resistance
To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.

#CampaignFinance records from the 1990 effort showed that
#Pence then 31, had been using political DONATIONS to pay the MORTGAGE on his house, his personal CREDIT CARD bill, groceries, GOLF tournament
fees and CAR PAYMENTS
for his wife.

#Pence's older brothers, Ed Pence, is an executive at Cummins Inc., a company that manufactures engines for the #Russian military and has also used LOBBYING firms connected with #PaulManafort, indicating that Pence may have ties to #Russia.

#Pence gives #Putin brophile a new meaning and takes Russiaphilia to a whole new level. It gives Pence MOTIVE for IGNORING U.S. Congressman Cummings’ warning, last November, re #FLYNN.
Cummins is deeply involved in #Russia through sales and joint ventures.
