1 "...This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will..." Frederick Douglass, Social Reformer + Abolitionist.
2. He wrote this in the 1850s. There was a time when "radical abolitionists", under the motto "No Union with Slaveholders", criticized his willingness to engage in dialogue with slave owners, his response was "...I'd unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong."
3. In 1885, European Powers met in Berlin for the Partition of Afrika into workable units to exploit and expand their their industries, dump their waste, steal resources for their all round growth done by forced Labour where EXTREME indentured servitude bordering Slavery reigned.

1. When the west says Afrika is the future, Afrikans MUST understand that they're not saying what WE think they are saying.

There is NEED for Political Education and Awareness on Imperialist coded Language & dog whistles. There is A MAJOR GAP leaving us vulnerable.

2. Revolutionaries keep sounding alarm especially of late, is because most understand that codes & dog whistles.

This is to say, there's what the white man says, what the black man hears AND; what the white man means and the black man understands & expects. There is a REASON
3. the black man's expectation is never met. It is because to the Imperialist, the subject is a means to an end. A mere tool FOR HIM.

To understand the Imperialist Tongue you MUST understand this, he does not see US at all. We are not people. We are objects. therefore,

The Left Is Everything They Hate

The Left’s policy prescriptions are the black mirror in which their own personality is reflected and amplified.…
“If there is one lesson I learned working in the startup industry, it’s that people tend to assume everyone else will behave the way they behave. This was a revealing education in human behavior.
“Someone who accuses everyone of cheating is likely to be a cheat. Someone who tends to be trusting is likely to be trustworthy.

You can measure the effectiveness of resistance by the fury of the response by ruling elites.

Accusing Holy Land Foundation Five of “funding terrorism” required a great deal of creativity but also a collaboration between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government.

"Two of the rebels I admire most, #JulianAssange, the #WikiLeaks publisher, and #RogerHallam, the co-founder of #ExtinctionRebellion @ExtinctionR, are in jail in Britain."

The biggest con that Trump is currently perpetrating and frankly the only one that has any prayer at keeping him in office is him convincing you that he’s already got this win sown up with cheating and your vote doesn’t matter. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
Trump is a mass murderer. Here’s who I am and what I do for #TheResistance. And your vote matters, part 2:
Trump isn’t a legitimate President, he’s a mass murderer, and your vote matters, Part 3:

Did you hear what happened in Boston? In Boston, during a verbal dispute, an unarmed teenage boy was forcefully hit in the head with the butt of a weapon by local law enforcement.
Word of the incident spread quickly, and a large number of locals gathered in the street where..
the incident had happened to protest almost immediately.

As the crowd grew, angry protesters shouted slogans; some business owners, fearing property damage, shut their doors. The local authorities called for uniformed backup; backup came, well-armed.
The assembly was deemed "unlawful," and the crowd was ordered to disperse. The protesters began to throw dirt clods in response.

In response, multiple uniformed law enforcers fired on the crowd. The first protester to die was a black man and the authorities justified the...

Corruption is simply crime without conscience.
—George Richard Marek

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
—Lord Acton
When people treat corruption as a routine part of the process, you have something far worse than wrongdoing or moral failing. You have a political cancer that breeds cynicism about democratic government and infects all of society.
—Edward Brooke
When scrutiny is lacking, tyranny, corruption and man's baser qualities have a better chance of entering into the public business of any government.
—Jacob K. Javits

Any political endorsement from from me is not easy to get and must be earned. Those that know me well that in the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election my original endorsement was:


I am firm believer everyone has right to their own opinion, how they choose to
live their life is their business, not my place or role to judge other choices, and I am not always right needing seeking to understand. Regarding supporting Trump I just do NOT UNDERSTAND. I have some good friends that really respect and believe are so smart that are on the
Trump Bandwagon. Thru all my questions and conversations I have come to conclusion they do not support Trump as a President it is more about the message, things they believe need to change, and ideals of the conservative party. I may not agree, but at least I can at least

"...Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow.


You don't want to act, or even talk, alone; you don't want to 'go out of your way to make trouble.' Why not?-Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty.


Uncertainty is a very important factor, and, instead of decreasing as time goes on, it grows. Outside, in the streets, in the general community, 'everyone' is happy. One hears no protest, and certainly sees none.

In response to @kyledcheney this AM: Headline from @nytimes: “Judiciary Committee Report Offers Legal Rationale for Impeachment Case”…. That’s what it is. The majority’s legal rationale, its explanation...the case it can make.
Much in the report is unobjectionable and indeed what I have taught about impeachment almost every year for the past 25, e.g. “As Justice Robert Jackson wisely observed, ‘the purpose of the Constitution was not only to grant power, but to keep it from getting out of hand.’”
I am all for legislators and especially members of the media to reacquaint themselves with Founders’ intent. It’s good to see. We need more judges so inclined. We are getting them in great numbers from @realDonaldTrump and @senatemajldr.

Great crowd in San Jose/Fremont last night for @860amtheanswer event (my San Francisco affiliate.) Like last week’s gathering w/ Tampa Bay’s @am860TheAnswer audience —when big affilatesbon opposite coasts have same signal it gets a little confusing— these audiences very smart. 1
Over eight days, sitting alongside @radiotalkermike @SebGorka @DennisPrager, we heard from almost 2000 people —who are paying to attend, not wandering in off street— what concerns them heading into 2020. Of course it is self-selected, but overwhelmingly pro-@realDonaldTrump. 2
And not just pro-@POTUS, incredibly informed re #Ukraine #Russiagate, federal judicial appointments, military spending, deregulation. Very alarmed by D’s hard left turn. Alternatively laughing at @AdamSchiff and outraged at abuse of impeachment. In other words, not the Beltway 3

How Did Democrats Get Here?
Democrats have become the party of thuggery, from the top leaders abusing President Trump as a traitor and criminal, to the Antifa black shirts beating up Trump supporters in Democrat cities.
The Democrats’ motivation for the fake impeachment crisis is obvious—they have no platform and no candidate that gives them a path to the White House.

I guess it was only a matter of time before the McResistance began making a hero out of John Bolton.
"We hate Trump so much that we love George W Bush, Bill Kristol, Max Boot, and now, John Bolton."

1) Fellow citizens I need your help. Today on Colorado Public Radio, a man named Andy Williams who owns "Medicine Man", a recreational marijuana business in the greater Denver metro has threatened to back Republican Senator Cory Gardner if the Democrats nominate former governor..
2)...John Hickenlooper because the Governor struggled early on with his position on recreational marijuana. If that is Mr. Williams sole consideration for supporting Mr. Gardner who has voted with Trump, the Koch Brothers and is one of the largest recipients of NRA money...
3)...then I will ask all of you to help me mount an economic boycott of Mr. Williams' business. Governor Hickenlooper and/or any other Democrat will be a better Senator than Cory Gardner. I have given Mr. Williams until Monday noon to respond. It amazes me that Mr. Williams...

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…
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'…

It wasn’t supposed to end this way.

Donald Trump, not Robert Mueller, was supposed to be vanquished at the hands of his political foes. Trump, not Mueller, was supposed to suffer a legacy-ending humiliation that would bury his tough-guy reputation...…
The climax of #TheResistance’s fantasy to take down Donald Trump wasn’t supposed to end with long faces at MSNBC and CNN, or with reporters at the Washington Post and the New York Times admitting defeat.

Me for @theamgreatness today:…
#TheResistance, once again, had pinned its hopes on a flawed actor not up to the task. Just like the conquerors who came before him—Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen just to name a few—Mueller slouched out of the spotlight after failing to best the Bad Orange Man.

A short thread on #impeachment.

I have pre-existing conditions—I fear my life & that of my friends being taken away.
I have close friends with DACA—I fear their right to be here being taken away.
I'm a Latino parent—I fear my child will be discriminated against worse than I was
I'm the survivor of an in-person death threat against me & my family, from a MAGA extremist who hated me just for who I am—I fear him or another carrying out those threats.

I'm an attorney—I fear the erosion of the rule of law.
I'm a patriot—I fear Russian interference in the 2020 election.

I'm a voting rights advocate—I fear a system is currently being created that will lead to permanent minority rule, & that that minority will use political power to permanently restricts the rights of the majority.

Thurs show will be on collapse of #TheResistance fantasy of impeachment brought about by today’s hearing. @realDonaldTrump now has opportunity to put it all to bed by simply repeating “No conspiracy, no collusion, no obstruction,” which is what majority of public has concluded.
If Dems (or any broadcast/print/social media outlet) continue to try and resurrect this fantasy, they’ll suffer terribly at polls or in ratings. The sad fiasco of today was that the Dems obliged SC Mueller to testify and results were awful for him. Ds will spin but no use.
The warning @SpeakerPelosi tried to give her back benchers and publicity-addicted chairmen went unheeded and @realDonaldTrump emerged not merely unscathed but stronger for today’s theatrics. #TheResistance may not know it, but it’s bleeding out on the impeachment fantasy.

My threads:

1) Thread about Trump and the very real risk of him unleashing violence on America.
3) Thread about Trump bragging in a book about being able to ruin a woman's life after she wouldn't lie to a friend for him, and him getting enjoyment from that.

Trump isn’t a POTUS, he’s a gangster

RUmob/TOC if you’re listening, La Cosa Nostra has moved into La Casa Bianca

Pentagon & intel agencies hesitate reading Trump in on ops targeting Russia, b/c of concerns he will countermand or leak intel to foreign officials

Trump leaked highly sensitive TS intel to Kislyak & Lavrov in the Oval Office the day after he fired Comey.

Trump was not briefed in any detail about the steps to place “implants” — software code that can be used for surveillance or attack — inside the RU grid

U.S. Escalates Online intrusions into Russia’s Power Grid

5/15/17: The intel disclosed by Trump in a meeting with Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, was about an Islamic State plot.

How unhinged is left? 6K+ comments on my column noting @realDonaldTrump/@VP/@SecPompeo agreement with Mexico. The prospect of a @POTUS win unnerves #TheResistance, so they seize on a headline that doesn’t reflect the actual story —which notes significant new commitments.
Throw in the standard “He created a crisis and then solved it” and presto, another “narrative” for the left to amuse themselves with. If it wasn’t a major shift from Mexico, there won’t be changes. But if the crisis abates it will be b/c of @realDonaldTrump tariff threat.
#TheResistance has talked itself into cheering the prospect of an ongoing border crisis. This commits the Ds to a radical position on the border similar to the radical position on health care. The party has been driven over the edge by its extreme online fringe (+ Mueller fiasco)
