1. When it comes to getting your head around the theocratic threat to democracy and human rights in the U.S. and globally today, terminology can be a hangup. That's why I made this beginner's guide to Christian dominionism. Post, share, and distribute away!

This infographic is the "first fruits," as it were, of the discussion in this thread about constructing a lexicon of terms needed to understand evangelicalism. A comprehensive infographic of that nature would be impossible, so I went with a theme:

1. Per @ThePlumLineGS, "Trump has crossed over into a form of autocratic disinformation that is designed to render fact-based deliberation and argument impossible."

He's right. This is a deliberate authoritarian strategy.

@ThePlumLineGS 2. Cultivating distrust of institutions might seem like a bad idea for someone who wants to govern, but it's quite effective if your goal is personal rule based on personal loyalty. The U.S. Right has tellingly sown distrust in the very possibility of good governance for decades.
@ThePlumLineGS 3. Disinformation combined with manipulative and corrupt means of gaining the personal loyalty of a population is an insidiously effective means of controlling people. I've laid out detailed thoughts on why alternative facts work for authoritarians here:

Today, the Proud Boys have organized an 'End Domestic Terrorism' rally in Portland in which it appears they're gearing up to replicate Charlottesville. PLEASE stay away from this, it's NOT what #TheResistance is about! #SaturdayThoughts usatoday.com/story/news/nat…
If you're looking for a way to meaningfully protest today, skip the Portland/Proud Boys mess and find a @MomsDemand Recess Rally against Gun Violence today instead. Here's the link for locations of that purposeful action. #SaturdayMotivation

Trump has (of course) weighed in on the Portland rally to be held by Alt-Right & Neo-Nazi groups, including Proud Boys. In fact, he appears to be concerned @ the Antifa group disrupting them, & has threatened to designate Antifa an "Organization of Terror' thedailybeast.com/trump-suggests…

क्रोध निर्णय को लागू करता है, ठीक वैसे ही जैसे सुबह की धुंध सूरज की रोशनी पर एक धुंधली चादर बनाती है। क्रोध में, लोग गलती करते हैं जो बाद में पछताते हैं, क्योंकि बुद्धि भावनाओं की धुंधली हो जाती है। लोग कहते हैं, “वह मुझसे बीस साल बड़ा है।

“But as the old joke about a one-sentence summary of Russian history goes: ‘Then things got worse.’ Sanctions, counter-sanctions, and large-scale capital flight were finally beginning to catch up to those earning a living in rubles.”

#SaturdayThoughts

Ah, memories. “I’ll never forget the day that the ruble, which had been trading at about 30 to the dollar when I began working in Moscow, plunged to over 80 to the dollar.”

And then the stores started running out of good European cheeses and couldn’t get any more...
Anyway, my thanks to @ProfessorIsIn for the opportunity to tell part of my story of how living in Moscow during the worst fall in relations between Russia and the West since the Cold War factored in to my ultimate alt-ac path.

1-As part of the proffer that Jeffrey Epstein made to the feds: "Epstein will agree to cooperate with the investigation, including giving up the names of individuals that paid for activities with underage girls in exchange for a maximum sentence not to exceed 5 years.
2-"If true, that proffer sounds like good news. Ironic good news: what a friend Jeffrey Epstein turned out to be! Then I grasped the wiggle phrase: “individuals that paid.”
3-"That would not be Donald Trump or Bill Clinton or a great many other bold-facers who flew on Epstein’s plane-it was known as the “Lolita Express”-or visited his homes." Jesse Kornbluth, Salon #SaturdayThoughts

One more time: I refuse to call Trump Christians "fake Christians" NOT to legitimate them. The crucial point is that religion is FAR FROM ALWAYS BENIGN.

We need to stop giving people undue trust and deference on the basis of their Christian affiliation.

#Pluralism #EmptyThePews
"Real" Christianity can be good. And "real" Christianity can be terrible. Both types are communally mediated expressions of a cultural system that exhibit a praxis and a relationship to the Bible.

#EmptyThePews #SaturdayThoughts
I will add that Jesus didn't have a notion of what constitutes "real" Christianity; Jesus wasn't a Christian. Because even if someone like the Jesus of the gospels is a real historical figure, Christianity started decades after his crucifixion. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Reporting is that Trump has now arrived in Seoul, and is awaiting word from Kim Jong-un @ whether or not KJu will meet with him @ the DMZ for an impromptu summit. BIG drama, as usual. And I can't shake the thought that it may not be spontaneous at all. #SaturdayThoughts
2- per Politico:"North Korea said it had not received an “official proposal” but a meeting “would serve as another meaningful occasion.” Earlier this wk, NK’s state news agency posted a photo of Kim reading a letter from Trump, which it described as “interesting content."
3-It's just so bizarre that Trump would pop in to say 'hi' to one of the most notorious, vicious dictators in the world...

2-pg 290. 'Siege, Trump Under Fire': On December 19...the president made two fateful decisions. Early that morning-without preparation or consultation, & bypassing the standard military & interagency review process-Trump sent out a tweet proclaiming that "[w]e have defeated ISIS
3-"in Syria," & then announced that he was withdrawing all US troops from that country. The military, diplomatic, & intelligence communities had long ago concluded that Trump's views about foreign policy gyrated peculiarly, & dangerously, on the basis of impulses & mood swings.

If you’ve read my bio you know I’m a combat vet, and I am blessed to be a father to 5 amazing children (range from 1-17). Our country’s current social climate in disarray dredges up many bottled emotions. I’m going to go a little deep, so buckle up, and bear with me.

This may be hard to understand, but there’s an “excitement”, for lack of a better word, that comes over a soldier right before a deployment. It’s a mixed bag of feelings such as adventure, thrill of the unknown, duty, and pride.

For me, the hardest moment was digesting the looks on my family’s face as I said that final good-bye and slipped off into the night. Yes, you settle into a routine and your days became consumed, but that initial good-bye, no matter the 1st or 7th time, always stuck with me.

How can we as #Americans accept that our government is responsible for the #genocide of #Yemeni civilians? How can we as a society not demand by every means necessary for the world's greatest #Humanitarian #Crisis to end?

#Yemen before #War
#Yemen a beautiful country full of beautiful #Yemeni who simply want to be left in peace. A country that's only fault is it's location in the world. A location that for the #US is strategically located close to #SaudiArabia, #Iran, and #Israel.
The #UnitedStates #Indoctrination and #Propaganda machine #FakeNews would have the American people believe we are helping to ensure peace and stability in the region. This is a claim that by now ALL AMERICANS should know is false!
