"The question & objection I keep hearing raised is this one: Why now? Why come in at the 11th hour when Joe Biden is on the verge of clinching the Democratic nomination?

The question of course is meant to undermine the claim and cast it as politically motivated...
...The more Red Scare conspiracy minded have taken that even one step further, going full Russian agent on Terra based on a Russia friendly blog post that she wrote as if her views on Russia remotely relate to Joe Biden's actions on that day in the 90s as if it's not far more...
...preposterous to imagine that Tara Reade is some Kremlin agent than that a powerful man committed an egregious Act.

But the story of "Why now?" is actually incredibly telling. It says everything about how our elite institutions routinely cover four powerful men...

There's a story spreading that Joe Biden sexually assaulted a former aide named Tara Reade, and Berners are amplifying it with hashtags like #IBelieveTara and #TimesUpBiden. Here are a bunch of reasons why this story is NOT to be trusted (thread):
ONE: Reade has apparently changed her story multiple times, saying as recently as last year that Biden "did not make her feel sexualized." >>> Image
TWO: Reade claims #TimesUp wouldn't help her with legal assistance, but as @raising_hill points out, TimesUp only provides it if you come to them with an attorney––and she didn't have one. >>>

Sunday is #IWD2020, and a time to reflect on Canada’s record on gender equality. #canlab #canfem 1/6
This year Canada ranked 19th on the @wef ’s #gendergap20 report, up from our poor showing in 2016 (35th), down from 16th last year. Canada’s young women are the most educated generation in history, but they are still hitting the wall in the world of work and politics 2/6
Women working full-time are still paid only 81 cents for every dollar men take home. The gap is even larger for racialized women and Indigenous women, who make 60% and 57% of what non-racialized men earn #canlab #canfem 3/6 behindthenumbers.ca/2019/03/05/dat…

Another #databreach as we have been documenting and covering on #DiggingDeeper on @PatriotsSoapbox for months.

@PatriotsSoapbox "The information of more than 10 million people who stayed at MGM Resorts, including data appearing to belong to government officials, was posted on a hacking forum this week.

The posting of the hacked information was first reported Wednesday by the website ZDNet."
@PatriotsSoapbox "No financial data were included in the dataset, which has been reviewed by NBC News. But it includes full names, birthdates, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers. The information was posted to the hacking forum Monday."

#Epstein #Maxwell #Wexner #Weinstein #metoo #Enough #TimesUp #SilenceBreakers

This summary by the Miami Herald of the Jeffrey Epstein case is worth RTing one million times.

Alex Acosta working for Robert Mueller gave Epstein a slap on the wrist b/c the HAD to.

>>Thread>>
The Epstein case in 2007 could not have gone to court without the risk of revealing COVERT operations on behalf of both the US and Israel.

Prosecutions have been dropped cases, at the urging of the intelligence community to avoid embarrassing revelations of misconduct.
This problem between DOJ + CIA has been on-going since 1950s.
>>
A decision not 2 prosecute based on national security grounds is made by at least an Assistant Attorney General…when national security requires abandoning an investigation, forgoing litigation or dismissing a case.

Seeing Parasite win Best Picture (along with best director, best original screen play, and best non-English language film [what's up with foreign language as a category?]) was something else - especially as a Korean American.

Here are some reflections:

1/ It felt like the US finally caught up to the rest of the world in its acknowledgement of Korean media (Korean Dramas, Pop, and Movies). Korean shows and music are popular all throughout the world. There is a reason BTS was number one in 73 countries last year.
2/ Activism is actually fixing some of the gross disparities we see. From the sexism (along with harassment & assault) being addressed in the #metoo & #timesup movements to the racism being addressed in hashtags like #oscarssowhite, public accountability actually changes things.

"...he ushered me out demanding I tell him which of the many key to use, threatening to slice my face. Once inside he dragged me by my hair and pushed me up against a wall. I tried to fight him off me but with one fist he knocked me down onto
"the floor. My head bounced off the wall and suddenly the thought that I might die rushed into my mind. Before I could scream, he was on top of me and I couldn’t breathe. I’d read somewhere that if you do nothing, don’t fight back, you won’t die. My mind was racing with a hundred
thoughts and all of them were about surviving this moment. And so, I didn’t fight back and in I don’t know how many minutes it was over. I felt powerless as I lay crumpled up on the floor half-dressed and in pain.

This is an incredibly difficult thing to write and put out there publicly. But I am fucking DONE protecting violent men (TW sexual assault) so here goes:
I'm upset that Johnny Issaluk has been chosen to receive an award from the Governor General of Canada, as well as an Indspire Award. I have written to both organizations asking them to retract their awards for him.
A decade ago, I cast him in one of my short films called Inuit High Kick. It’s a beautiful short film that I was very proud of, and he was magnificent in it. It played at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and shown in many places over the world.

TW: Abuse Survivors.

Here's the audio where Amber Heard mocks Johnny Depp for calling for help while she was abusing him, she then loses her temper and fully admits to abusing him but proceeds to shame him again.

Typical abuser behavior. #TimesUp #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #MeToo
Now the most disgusting is that people like @PerezHilton are writing and twisting what cannot be twisted.

Because undeniably, the truth is here. IF ONE THING this whole Johnny Depp case should teach us, it's that men can be abused WITHOUT BEING ABUSIVE.

@cnnbrk where are you ?
@PerezHilton @cnnbrk TW: VIOLENCE

For the ones feeling strong enough to listen to more, (articles are getting posted but you can find the full thing here …)

Here's Amber Heard losing it, SCARY AS F.

Following this, she tried to give Depp a Xanax.

As Harvey Weinstein stands trial, dozens of courageous Silence Breakers stood together this morning in front of the courthouse to demand justice.

Read their powerful words:

(Photo credit: Laura Barisonzi @lbaris for #TIMESUP Foundation)
@lbaris "Time’s up on sexual harassment in all work places, time’s up on blaming survivors, time’s up on empty apologies without consequences, and time’s up on the pervasive culture of silence that has enabled abusers like Weinstein.” — @RoArquette
@lbaris @RoArquette "Know this: we are free, we are beautiful, we are strong. And you will never take that from us. Most importantly, know that the Silence Breakers will never give up. Survivors will never give up.” — @Rosemcgowan

Today would have been #RecyTaylor's 100th birthday. She was born on New Year’s Eve in 1919. It was a year of violence & resistance. White terrorists rampaged through black towns and folks like WEB DuBois said “We return from fighting. We return fighting.” She was born to fight.
Recy Taylor grew up in Abbeville, in SE Ala during Jim Crow. She was the eldest in a large & loving family that farmed & sharecropped. Her mother died when she was very young. She promised her she would raise her siblings. Her baby brother Robert came to see Recy as his mother
Abbeville was also home base for #RosaParks’s father’s family. She lived there for a time as a young girl and came back to help defend Recy Taylor in the fall of 1944, after a group of white teenagers kidnapped Taylor at gunpoint.

Tidbit from a piece I did some years ago:
#TaylorSwift began her philanthropy at 16. At 17 she donated $100k to help secure gay marriage rights against CA's terrible #Prop8. Michelle Obama honored her twice at the WH for her dedication to literacy.
#AmericanMusicAwards
#TaylorSwift has given millions to disaster relief in the US and elsewhere, to climate issues, to textbooks for under-funded schools. She has donated close to 100k books to schools, libraries and children's hospitals.
#AmericanMusicAwards
#TaylorSwift has given millions to #AIDS research, #FeedingAmerica, #UNICEF Tap Project, MusiCares. She has donated $25k to St. Jude's, $50k to Philly Children's hospital, $100k to cancer research. She has donated to myriad #LGBTQ rights organizations.

I know many were anxious about the results of the hearing in which Amber Heard was trying to force Johnny Depp to go through an independent mental evaluation. Rest easy. Long story short...she lost. It was denied on Friday November 15th.
Before I post the entire transcript, I want to point to a few key moments.
First is Benjamin Chew pointing out how Amber Heard, once again, lied in a declaration when she stated she'd never been in Virginia. When in fact she was there this past May, on Capital Hill & WaPost even wrote about it. Now how could something she was so proud of slip her mind?

A Thread: John MacArthur & Sexual Abuse

John MacArthur has been doubling down lately regarding a woman's place in the church. Why now? Bc he sees #metoo #churchtoo coming for his ministries. If women can't speak, then women can't speak up about the sex abuse he's hidden. 1 of 11
John MacArthur's seminary/university is on accreditation probation. The first report by the accreditation agency cited administration was ignorant regarding Clery Act and VAWA, both of which protect victims of sexual crimes. 2 of 11
In fact, John MacArthur's Master's University & Seminary has been fined by the US Dept of Education for noncompliance with the Clery Act, which protects victims of sexual crimes. 3 of 11

So today, I've had a guy follow me all the way down a road, constantly pestering me "Hello! Where are you going? Etc."
And just now a guy stops, looks me up & down and says "Oh God. Oh shit."
Are women not allowed out on their own in Greece? Or do I just look really bad today?🤔
I'd hasten to add that these 2 incidents were in addition to the standard level of street harassment that I anticipate everywhere I go... it doesn't just happened in Greece: it's endemic across Europe. And it's not OK. Because it intimidates women out of public spaces... 2.
People have expressed genuine shock when I've told them I am travelling alone. Likewise: I've had numerous emails/messages from women saying they think I am "brave" for travelling on my own - AND THIS IS THE WORST THING: they would be too scared to travel alone. 3.

THREAD: In a new Rolling Stone interview, David Simon attacks the LA Times' 2018 story on James Franco by insinuating we reported the story on the actor because we were aware "that the lion’s share of the real, aggressive, meaningful reporting on this stuff..."
"...had been done by The New Yorker and The New York Times. They were the ones who were delivering real, solid, fundamental journalism, about real offenders who were using their positions to obtain sex, and misusing women in that fundamental way."
So is Simon saying that the 2017 stories the paper did on James Toback, Brett Ratner and Russell Simmons prior to the one on Franco were not "real," "aggressive," or about "real offenders?"

1.) The case of ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bronze ⭐️ Lt. General Michael Flynn.
James Baker leaked phone calls telling the FBI to “take the kill shot.” Explained by his brilliant attorney, Sidney Powell:
👉
2.) Lt Gen Flynn was 100% set up, just like Paul Mannafort who was actually doing business for HRC in Ukraine, not Trump, to use as the basis for the FISA court to spy on him using the umbrella of 7 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon.
3.) The same thing happened to Annapolis Grad Carter Page who was already working FOR THE FBI as a paid informant. They (HRC) tried to do the same thing with George Popodop who was given a suitcase containing $10K that he immediately

Looking for catchy suggestions of hashtags to help my Dan Schneider campaign take off. We need something memorable and catchy that we can all use to link our posts together. Please suggest ideas in the comments and I will make a poll shortly.
We need a catchy hashtag like #metoo or #timesup that we can brand around taking down Dan Schneider if we really want this to work. We need your suggestions in the comments and overall effort to make this work.
#Schneidergate and #Schneiderfile don't work too well because it's hard for the layman to quickly spell his name. #Pedogate is too easy for the mainstream media to discredit. Maybe we call it #Nickgate or #Nickghazi or something like that instead?
