I recognize the right of the people of #CHAZ to self determination and independence, I'm thinking of giving them some oil wells in #Alaska to survive; maybe #Russia can help secure those wells, and calling on freedom fighters of the world to move there:

SATO (South Atlantic Treaty Organizations) should immediately deploy in #CHAZ and secure its territories from the regime of #DonaldTrump which in real oppress and kill their own citizens live on camera with support of the #US National Guards militias.
#GeorgeFloyd #ICantBreathe
The people of #California should allow #FUSA (Free US Army) to burn their wheat fields in order to support #CHAZ independence from the regime of #DonaldTrump who lost legitimacy and is hiding in a bunker under the #WhiteHouse:

1. Am I correct that @SenSanders, as the #Vermont at-large House member, voted for 2001 #AUMF? It's my understanding that House member @RepBarbaraLee was the only member to vote no.
2. That's the vote that has us in #Afghanistan, #Syria and #Iraq and justified #Guantanamo. We all agree the 2002 AUMF for Iraq re-invasion was foolish. If we want to talk about that then we should talk about the fact that two of the folks who hid Saddam's nuke program are
3. @TheJusticeDept's Bill Barr and likely @WhiteHouse #Cipollone. So if @BernieSanders wants to open up the intel on the Iraqi nuke program that led to invasion, you came to the right place. My January 15, 2019, Pre-confirmation Bill Barr post.

1 WHAT AMERICANS WANT.
JOBS...Money to pay bills, put food on the table.
They don’t care if their boss makes more money.
They’ve never gotten a job from a poor person.
We want a chance to succeed... or fail.
@realDonaldTrump knows both.
He embodies the American spirit!
2 Yes he was born into a wealthy family... but wealth starts with poverty, and I bet if you really wanted you’d do whatever it takes to be like @realDonaldTrump, and have your kids grow up with advantages.
If you say “NO” then you’re a liar who hates your kids.
#Trump2020
3 @realDonaldTrump is a man I can identify with.
No I was not born into wealth and I’m not wealthy, but I have been poor and on welfare,and hated it! It’s a trap... I pulled myself up by my bootstraps @AOC and joined the Army to provide for my kids.

1er bilan de cette primaire du #NewHampshire?
3 faits majeurs:
1. #BernieSanders vainqueur mais avec 1 marge plus faible que prévu sur #Buttigieg. Ils sortent en tête de la séquence #Iowa/#NH
2. Désastre total pour #Warren ET #Biden sous les 10%
3. #Klobuchar surgit vraiment.
RT
2) Le #NewHampshire, juge de paix de la 1ère "étape" des primaires démocrates, a rendu 1 verdict en 3 étages:
. les 3ers candidats ont chacun de quoi se réjouir.
. Il y a 2 vaincus écrasés.
. Le grupetto (désolé mais j'aime ma métaphore TDF😉) des petits candidats est écrémé.
3) Pour #BernieSanders, si la victoire est bien moins éclatante qu'en 2016 dans 1 #NewHampshire frontalier de son #Vermont d'élection, à cause d' 1 contexte différent, "a win is a win" et le contrat est rempli. Il apparaît, avec l'effondrement de #Biden, en "frontrunner" national

We think and plan a lot about the future of Vermont’s economy. Yesterday after touring an #organic dairy farm in Fairfield, Marcelle and I visited Liquid Measurements Systems, a growing aerospace firm in Georgia, #VT. @LMS_VT recently hired 3 engineers who relocated to #VT
.@LMS_VT competes on a global scale with its sensor products. These support cutting-edge aircraft like the #X59, Lockheed Martin’s partnership w/@NASA to build a supersonic aircraft. Thru 30 years this #SmallBusiness has supplied both commercial and military aerospace sectors.
The variation of these two enterprises is part of the beauty and strength of our state. #Vermont will have a vibrant future if we protect our agricultural heritage, and expand our manufacturing and tech sectors.

@cigoltonk @NightmanoOo @AndyKimNJ @BurlcoTimes 1/ Clearly, you’re like so many other people in this country, Including myself at one time, who believes that the federal government is financially constrained. That it needs to tax and borrow “as revenue“ to be able to spend. It’s simply untrue.
@cigoltonk @NightmanoOo @AndyKimNJ @BurlcoTimes 2/ Article 1, Section 8 of the constitution states 3 things about the currency of this country: Congress creates the currency, it sets the value of that currency, and it imposed a tax and levies fines denominated in that currency.
@cigoltonk @NightmanoOo @AndyKimNJ @BurlcoTimes 3/ This means that you can’t create the 💵. I don’t create the 💵. Your job doesn’t create the 💵. Your town, state, and foreign countries certainly don’t create the 💵. Congress does. By law. It can create as much as it wants or needs to. Did I say that it should? No. I did not.

Today is my paid intern Owen's one-on-one day, where he shadows me to see what goes in to representing Vermont in the Senate. He will be posting photos and tweets about his day to this account.
[Owen] This is Owen posting, from Senator Leahy’s Twitter today. I’m a recent @uvmvermont graduate & have been a paid intern since January. Today we will attend committee hearings, meet with advocacy groups & visit with #Vermonters!
[Owen] Our first stop of the day was the Senate Floor, where the senator is co-managing the disaster relief Appropriations bill. Then a @SenateApprops subcommittee hearing where we are hearing from @SGottliebFDA on the FDA’s funding request for Fiscal Year 2020.

Leader McConnell & the GOP won’t admit that climate change is real and caused by humans. They only want a show vote, as opposed to the numerous pieces of actual legislation that I’ve pressed for to address this very real crisis.
Trumpism’s #AntiScience know-nothingism is denying the reality of climate change, and the effects are being felt across the nation in the form of extreme weather, changing harvests and other effects that will only get worse.
In #Vermont, climate change affects everything from pancakes to pistes, making our ski and sugaring seasons unpredictable and hurting vital Vermont industries. Read about how it impacts the maple industry here: civileats.com/2018/05/02/wha…

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

🌎Donald Trump—🌪️Roger Stone—🔥Paul Manafort—🌬️Roy Cohn
There are so many connections between these four gentlemen, but the common thread between them all appears to be Roger Stone.

washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/…
🔪But Stone’s rules: “Attack, attack, attack—never defend” and “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.” This “advice” came via renowned attorney Roy Cohn, who represented Donald Trump late in Cohn’s life.

vanityfair.com/news/2017/06/d…
🌬️Cohn’s "original" 3-dimensional strategy via @vanityfair article: 1. Never settle, never surrender. 2. Counter-attack, counter-sue immediately. 3. No matter what happens, no matter how deeply into the muck you get, claim victory and never admit defeat.”

🍊Sound familiar?

Wow 😮 Two more poorly-informed public officials fall for the false propaganda of a fringe, radical (anti Jewish) group working to demonize #Israel 🇮🇱 & defame, smear the @ADL_National 😩 ☹️ #shameful
FYI @SethAMandel @LegInsurrection @jonathans_tobin @acandidworld
@ADL_National @SethAMandel @LegInsurrection @jonathans_tobin @acandidworld I’ve written extensively about the JVP-spearheaded #DeadlyExchange campaign which blames 🇮🇱 & American 🇺🇸 Jewish orgs for deliberately conspiring to cause harm to minorities in US inner cities. This isn’t legitimate criticism of Israel. It’s straight up #antisemitism 😩 1/
@ADL_National @SethAMandel @LegInsurrection @jonathans_tobin @acandidworld After convincing the Durham City Council to shut down any future exchange between its police 👮 department w/counterparts in 🇮🇱 (& only Israel), JVP and allies have been working 24/7 for their next big municipal win. Now they have two ☹️2/

[Kiernan] Today I’ll be shadowing Senator Leahy as part of my paid internship. I’m from beautiful @MorrisvilleVT and study political science at @AmericanU. Excited for a busy day as the Senator meets with constituents, committees, dignitaries, and advocates.
[Kiernan] Starting off the day in a @senjudiciary executive business meeting where the Senator spoke out against Trump’s installation of Whitaker as Acting AG. The Committee also reported #Vermont’s US Marshal nominee Brad LaRose for a vote on the Senate floor unanimously.

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject electproject.org/early_2018
#Midterms2018 : dans tous le pays, les chiffres de la participation le jour du vote semblent aussi largement au-dessus de la normale, et ils dépassent même parfois ceux enregistrés en 2016. Pour rappel, la participation lors des midterms est généralement inférieure de 20 points.
#Midterms2018 : à #Nashville, la participation est déjà supérieure à celle de 2016. La mobilisation dans ce bastion démocrate du très conservateur #Tennessee est essentielle pour que @PhilBredesen conserve une chance d'être élu Sénateur.

#DYK The post office issues safe driving awards to mail carriers? This is a neighbor of mine growing up in #Maine. She’s a great lady and deserves the recognition! Although they included an odd and abrupt USPS funding disclaimer at the end.

thecounty.me/2018/10/29/new…
#DYK The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

This is why packing tape from #USPS costs as much as my #studentloan payments. 😂
Speaking of #DYK That #maine has an opportunity tax credit that can help you repay your student loans? It won’t help you purchase packing tape but it might help Maine attract younger workers.
