THREAD ICYMI: We successfully sued the U.S. Department of Justice to obtain James @Comey's personal emails used to conduct official FBI business causeofaction.org/fbi-records-sh… #FOIA #transparency
Of the more than 500 documents reviewed, the FBI released only 156 pages and withheld 370 pages in full, with 7 emails withheld under #FOIA’s law enforcement exemption nypost.com/2018/11/09/jam…
This exemption is used when the government can show (1) a law enforcement proceeding is pending or prospective, and (2) release of information about that proceeding could reasonably be expected to cause some articulable harm causeofaction.org/fbi-records-sh…

FYI if you see reporting on “grassroots activists”with #TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw protest @WhiteHouse & nationwide today 5pm EST, here is back story: protest is “powered” by @MoveOn with a “nonpartisan” 501(c)4 lobbying org that acts as defacto @DNC. #transparency #followthemoney
2) Hi @CNN @wolfblitzer @CillizzaCNN you are reporting the protests at Time Square without telling viewers that @MoveOn, a partisan lobbying group organized the protests nationwide. See my thread. It’s no secret.
3) FYI you should know the organizer too @JFKucinich @thedailybeast and report it’s partisan @MoveOn that organized the protests. They are not “grassroots.” They are AstroTurf via a lobbying group.

0/ Thread: Fascinating discussion on Structuring your #Sales with @JonathanAngv, COO of @aircall last night at @_TheFamily. I love it when experienced founders pass on what they've learned so new generations can move faster & avoid traps. A few highlights from last night 👇✨
1/ Process beats talent: 🤖 There are no good or bad salespeople. What matters is how they respect the process, and how well defined it is. At @aircall, they have changed their process over 100 times #continuouslearning #optimization
2/ The importance of metrics: 📈 Only one thing matters - MRR. It is displayed on screens in every room and every single person at the company knows this number by heart. Every target is determined in accordance with this number. Full #transparency

“I Know the Salaries of Thousands of Tech Employees” by @jackiehluo link.medium.com/ve2ucnEphR // I really like this post and effort. Some thoughts on the challenges of operationalizing compensation for many people, especially over time. #transparency 1/🧵
2/ Post rightly focuses on first order, which is disparity of compensation on identifiers and systemic bias. I agree 1000% with that focus.

Operationalizing a system is hard. I wanted to highlight challenges—not excuses (!) but provide tools/motivation for gaining transparency. Excerpt from post “Today gender, race, and class…”
3/ The most frustrating thing as an employee is finding out the compensation of another employee and believing there is unfairness in the ‘system’, whether you are paid more or less, something seems broken.

1. I am currently under media assault, via an aggressive election ad campaign by @HawleyMO. With every click, up pops an ad or vid w/deep sinister voice warning me who NOT to vote for. (unroll) #mogop #mosen #mogov #moleg
2) In my 30 year voting experience, I have never changed my mind on a candidate in response to a political ad. No matter the candidate, I mute, switch or otherwise override the incoming propaganda. #mogov #mogop #mosen #moleg
3) Yet, @HawleyMO Hawley has been holding nearly every YouTube video I attempt to watch hostage. His odious toned propaganda is everywhere across media platforms in what appears to be a very $$$ ad campaign. #mogop #mosen #mogov #moleg

Yes, @VidyaKauri Saron blocked me after I asked her about what @680NEWS broadcasted.

I tried to reach her by phone.

Note that I’ve also called out Saron and Jennifer Keesmaat for appropriating my ideas and touting them as their own. No #accountability there either.

When you suggest that Desmond is being anti-woman I ask you what aspect of deceptive practices do you identify with being a woman?

#accountability #integrity #transparency is lacking in Government, why is this acceptable for anyone?
Why would this be acceptable for Candidates?
Know that many things are done privately to address issues before something becomes public. We get all the facts, all the #receipts before issues need to be addressed.

We take #accountability & #transparency seriously.

In the morning of the 12th of October 2018, 3 officers of Special Investigation Bureau -SIB (as claimed) from the @PoliceNGLagos station at Gate, Baruwa, Ipaja, stormed a compound on Road 3, Peace Estate, in Ipaja with no warrants. They claimed they were looking for an offender.
As you can see they are not in uniform. When one of the occupants @ERAH_GUNZ engaged them, they felt insulted & decided to intimidate/oppress him to submission even though he wasn’t their reason for leaving their office. #EndIndiscriminateRaids #ReformPoliceNG @YomiShogunle
They manhandled & cuffed him, dragging him to their station and took his phone from him. Upon reaching the station in order to punish him for standing up to them, they brought our some weeds claiming that it belongs to the victim (Odera Egwumba- Elah Gunz- A performing Artiste).

a wonky thread about what it should mean for social media companies to be transparent. my last report to the @UNHumanRights Council discusses: freedex.org/a-human-rights… #transparency can be so vague as to be meaningless, so some [long] thoughts follow
let me just emphasize that i drew these principles from human rights law (& work of some great thinkers), not out of thin air. sure, that law applies to states, but companies also have responsibility not to interfere w/users' rights.
one aspect of transparency is clarity in the rules (community stds, guidelines, etc). they are broad and general, tho companies are trying to do better, it's true.

As we get closer to midterms, trolls and bots will push #FakeNews more than ever.

Here are some tips for spotting and fact checking possible propaganda or disinformation posts on social media. 1/9 #MondayMotivation
The tweet above that says McCain admitted to being a war criminal is an example of disinformation.

When you read the @snopes article, it's clear that McCain was talking about a false confession he wrote while a POW as a result of torture. 2/9 goo.gl/owo1Pb
A good example of propaganda is using #mollietibbits' tragic murder to paint #immigrants as criminals and advocate for anti-immigrant policies. 📰goo.gl/r6A1aS

They want to elicit an emotional response in working class Americans: to fear immigrants. 3/9

I've always had a sinking feeling about #WikiLeaks & #Assange (besides the rape allegations,) but this is solidifying that feeling. We definitely need #transparency, but we must be careful & look out for those w alterior motives.

motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…
From Emma Best (@NatSecGeek)
Re:#WikiLeaks #Assange #RussianCollaborator

Again, we *need* transparency, but we have to know that the motives are pure. Obviously Assange & his minions had ulterior motives.
This says a lot about #RealityWinner's arrest.We know Comey&Trump were targeting "leakers."We now know what many have suspected, Assange was collaborating. We also now know that Assange's motives were to target the UN. Doesnt Reality care about climate change & human rights? 🤔🤔

Dear white sisters & brothers in #TORONTO,

I’m asking you a question that may make you uncomfortable, that may make you recoil, that may make you hide, &/or that may make you retaliate in various ways.

You are the majority of people who vote.
Your vote has impacted our lives.
Yes white sisters & brothers, your. Your vote has impacted our lives.

This thread is not about making you feel guilty. Know that I write this with love to you because I love you & want better for our City. In order for our City to thrive we must work towards certain goals together.

(1) Execs & Insiders at Big Tech Are Going to Prison!

Let's unpack Facebook first.

Insiders aware of unreported issues/investigations + sold shares/options = Insider Trading

@Facebook @Twitter @Google

(2) I am an ex Wall Street/Bulge Bracket Banker, I held the highest SEC/FINRA licenses 24, 7, 79, 63, 66.

I have been fuming as I watch @facebook @Twitter @Google insiders sell when they know what is coming.

This is INSIDER TRADING!
(3) Why would anyone sell these shares?

1/ So, the policy of automatic separation /appears/ to be over.

Which means that parents & kids will be held together in shadowy detention facilities that get little or no outside oversight.

I've filed bunches of FOIA requests with multiple agencies to get a glimpse inside.
2/ And remember: The Office of Refugee Resettlement at Health & Human Services is running an entirely separate system of facilities for children who show up to the border unaccompanied. (The converted Wal-Mart at Brownsville TX is the most famous example.)
3/ The ORR facilities started taking in immigrant children who were forcibly separated from their parents, but that was a recent development. The primary reason they exist is to detain minors who come to the US by themselves.

Anyway, I have FOIA requests in with ORR & HHS too.

New #QAnon 1569-1570.

Their FF attempt was thwarted. To shift narrative off the damning #IGReport & successful #TrumpKimSummit, they're focusing on immigration/child separation- a projection of their own involvement in child separation/child trafficking. #FreeIran2018 is next.
New #QAnon 1571.

Jackson Lee made headlines yesterday, when she leaked plans to fire RR on Friday at the #SenateHearing. How'd she know? Who told her? Who is she protecting?

Interesting ring, Sheila. Part of the club?

Projection.

New #QAnon 1542.

D= Dems or missing D from prev #Q drop.

Morning sun= Dark to LIGHT, putting the "heat" on the deep state.

Full moon= ref to those who "howl"

Undiscovered stars= star witnesses, ref to "follow the STARS"

Mission forward= stay the course

#MAGA #Trump @POTUS
Q mentioned "full moon coming." This may be pointing to a date for something big that will drop. It also may reference the cabal's beliefs in mysticism, black magic, etc. Lastly, it may reference how the unhinged libs will be howling even louder.

New #QAnon

Is #Q posting without a trip code here?

#Q says "Access Kills".

Who had access?

The #IGReport stated that foreign actors hacked HRC's private server & had access to classified information. The IG Report proves FBI knew about it.

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n

hearing—"#China's Worldwide #Military Expansion" is a dramatic bellwether of growing concerns in Washington & beyond.

Now online—hard-hitting arguments + many data points, some deeply-analyzed yet hard to find elsewhere in public domain:

CAPT Jim Fanell, USN Ret, former @USPacificFleet N2:

"today, the PLA Navy consists of over 330 surface ships & 66 submarines, nearly 400 combatants. As of 4 May 2018, the @USNavy consists of 283 battle force ships: 211 surface ships and 72 submarines."

"By 2030, it is estimated [by Fanell & @SCheneyPeters in their chapter in @NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute's Chinese Naval Shipbuilding volume amazon.com/Chinese-Naval-… @USNIBooks that] the PLANavy will consist of some 550 ships: 450 surface ships & 99 submarines."

Over the past few months, several scam accounts have popped up that call themselves #resistance. Some ask for #donations to help impeach Trump. Some sell shirts, phone cases, etc. And there are others that ask for money for various causes. THREAD 1 #scam #donate #con #PSA
I’ve written about some before, I have a collection of threads about them here. 2
