Prime example of why you shouldn’t just “#followback.”

Discovered I was following this little #MAGAt. They “protect” their accounts now.

From now on, I’ll be blocking protected accounts that I don’t recognize.

Here’s some other things to watch out for. (thread)
#RussianBots
I noticed a lot of accounts following, and unfollowing me—hoping for a “#followback.”

They all had high numbers of “followers and following.”

But here’s the thing—

They have very low comments, likes, and retweets.

Why?

I’ll explain...
The reason the Russians invade, or create #FBRparty posts—is because they want disruption.

I’ve had a number of people say they haven’t seen my posts in a while.

I haven’t stopped posting.

It’s that they’re following 15k people, and that high of a number buries “real posts.”

Please RT & Stand In Solidarity With @MsGladysKnight Who Is Singing
"The National Anthem" at the #SuperBowl

While Other Cowardly Singers Plan To Kneel For Kaepernick, She Has Something To Say...."PLEASE See Thread & Please RT ALL

#StandForOurFlag #Veterans

#RNRKentucky
Now, legendary singer Gladys Knight is set to belt the National Anthem on Sunday, and she doesn’t care if anyone is upset with her decision.
“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things and they are police violence and injustice,” said the 74-year-old in a statement
“It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.” @MsGladysKnight

So I put this comment up days ago... Believe you/me I've been digging and Lindsey Graham is a real problem child.

The problem: There is so much info out there that would usually disqualify him from running in politics successfuly, but most of it is public for years.

1/?
a few fun Lindsey facts:

His family didn't desegregate their bar (where he claims to have grown up) until the 70s

He is a member of IRI. The first organization Kilminik and Manafort infiltrated.

He took 1.2 million from a Russian Oligarch

2/?
In 2010 a man claimed to have a photo of a man whom lindsey had spent the night with

Lindsey is a member of Christians for Israel and in the early 2010s the Libertarians tried to use it against him with his base.

One thing caught my eye however.

#Q NEVER lied about #JfkJr NOT being alive. LEGALLY he is DEAD, however John Kennedy is very much ALIVE.

TRUMPS EXECUTIVE ORDER 13818 - “Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption”
The birth certificate created a FICTION (the name of the baby in upper case letters). The state/province sells the birth certificate to the Commerce Department of the corporations of USA/CA, which places a bond on the birth certificate, thereby making it a negotiable instrument.
and placing the fiction, called a STRAWMAN, into the warehouse of the corporation of USA/CA. Representation for the created fiction was given to the BAR (British Accredited Registry/Regency), owned and operated by the Crown

I was just leaving the grocery & as I went to put up the cart & there was a homeless veteran sitting near the carts in the cold. He was just staring at a quarter that was in his hand. I pulled out what cash I had, about $20 & held his hand & said thank you for your service. 1/
It was fucking heart wrenching. What I don't understand is why Veterans are not taken care of for life like the House, the Senate and the President are. #Veterans sacrifice their lives for our freedom and they come home to get tossed in the streets. 2/
We would not have a Democracy if we did not have men and women that have given their lives to serve our Country. Veterans should be held in the highest regard. They should have housing and benefits for life. I will never forget his face. It is seared into my heart. 3/

ICYMI: #Trump Sold Out US Farms to #Putin who profits from Tariffs & Supplies China ALL it Needs

This is market share, farmland & Treasury the US will NEVER get back. Not to mention, Democracy handed over to Foreign Powers.

#Putin Gives Thanks: US Surrendered the ME & US Farmers

Putin said on Wednesday, Russia would supply soy beans & poultry meat to China because the US had effectively 'given up' on that market.

No, the US Farmer was SOLD OUT.
#ImpeachTheMF #GOPShutdown
reuters.com/article/us-rus…
China buys Bankrupt US Farms to cut out the middleman & compete in US Food Supply. Specifically, Alibaba is targeting Walmart.

#Trump & Bankers describe these foreclosure steals as 'good business' just like Wilbur Ross' US mortgage crisis.

Going to the border w a group of progressive #veterans & @Ocasio2018 NY14 organizers to respond to the #asylum crisis one of the most important actions this year. It reminded me of our collective power & #military veterans & families' unique strengths & instincts as organizers /1
Coming together quickly for urgent collective action, we realized most of us had a #military affiliation, whether we enlisted ourselves or our mother, uncles, or cousins served in uniform.

Nearly all of us were also #immigrant-connected— immigrants or the children of immigrants
Many #progressive military #veterans are wired w critical, transferable skills that make us incredibly effective organizers. Particularly in high pressure, chaotic situations

*Vets of color in particular hold massively under-tapped insights & analytical power for change* /3

I understand the country is reeling in the wake of another senseless mass casualty gun shooting, however, you need to reconsider your inflammatory headline about the shooter. This is in no way to protect him, as he committed unspeakable acts and cut
short the lives of many promising individuals, but to protect those who have honorably served our country and continue their daily battle with PTSD.
Your headline lists this person “was a Marine maybe suffering from PTSD”. First, you have no evidence to
corroborate your claim of PTSD as that is protected health information under HIPAA. Unless this has been disclosed from close family-you have no way of validating this claim. All this does is further stigmatize those who truly suffer from PTSD, specifically combat-related PTSD.

Can someone explain to me when the @GOP stopped ignoring fiscal responsibility?
Can someone explain to me why @GOP claimed to be the party of Moral Values but continues to support a person like @realDonaldTrump?

Can you explain to me why you wouldn't want another party in power for the Senate or House when you believe in the Constitution and checks and balances?

1) Look at these images:

They were not photoshopped.
2) I've been a transcript team coordinator / editor for over 10 years, editing transcripts of whistle-blowers from inside the MIC (Military-Industrial Complex), each of whom had been authorized to release once-classified info.

So, I've been privy to a lot of good intel.
3) Part of the intel was that part of what took down the WTC towers was some sort of space-based energy weapon that turns solid objects into dust -- and THAT'S what you are seeing in those pics in the OP.

Those pics are from this site:

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies #CultureOfCorruption #Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
30,100: North Dakotans that would have lost health coverage by 2026 under the #GOP House-passed #Trumpcare bill./3 #ProtectOurCare #CultureOfCorruption #GOPGreed

🎖️Supporting #veterans is high on Kyrsten Sinema’s list of priorities. Sinema is also from a military family: one brother is a Marine and the other is an active duty Sailor.

#vetsresist
#supportourtroops
#resist
#Vets
🎖️Sinema believes that taking care of active duty military and veterans is one of the “most important obligations we have as Americans. Every American who wears the uniform deserves our respect and full support, both on the battlefield and when he or she returns home.”
🏛️While serving Arizona’s 9th District in Congress, Sinema took on the local VA facility in Phoenix, AZ. She learned that approximately 40 Arizona veterans died while waiting for care on “secret” VA lists.

@AndrewScheer @CPC_HQ @AndrewScheer how conveniently you forgot your party's out-of-control spending. Canadians who were starving + struggling to survive during the 2008 economic crisis haven't forgot. If any Canadian has forgotten it is our duty + pleasure, as Canadians, to remind them. #cdnpoli
1/10
@AndrewScheer @CPC_HQ In 2012 while Canadians were maxing out food banks, struggling + barely able to afford food, Conservatives gave $826,000 to Cardinal Meat Specialists Ltd., to help produce “a higher quality sausage that is more resistant to splitting or bursting while cooking.” #cdnpoli

@AndrewScheer @CPC_HQ In 2015 while closing several #Veterans' Affairs offices nationwide, Conservatives chose to make an expensive fashion statement by returning to WWII-era ranks + insignia, forcing struggling taxpayers to buy $4.5MILLION worth of new dress uniforms for soldiers + navy

When I was called back to service in 2004 for the Iraq War, I was attached to a California reserve unit.
They were 99% Hispanic, and some weren’t citizens.
I was one of three white guys in that unit. But I never felt like that, since they treated me like family.
#ImmigrantVets
As much as our nation has scorned and shunned Hispanic immigrants, I would’ve understood if they treated me as an outsider.
I would’ve been disappointed, but understanding.
But that’s not what happened.
And they were some of the finest Marines I’ve served with.
#ImmigrantVets
The Hispanic Marines I served with welcomed me into their unit.
Since then I’ve learned a few things. Hispanics have no problem assimilating into our society, or welcoming us into their homes.
We do.
We push them to edge and find ways to keep them there.

🚨@AGBecerra @ericgarcetti @tedlieu @KamalaHarris @SenFeinstein you need to focus. Why the hell does @UCLA lease a baseball field on property donated to @DeptVetAffairs your big solution is to let them sleep in their cars there? Hell no.
You have 388 acres DONATED and the $16.5 million dollar deal with #UCLA is supposed to include facilities for #Veterans but it’s stuck in limbo over an environmental study?GTFO @AGBecerra needs to file a lawsuit against someone other than @realDonaldTrump and fix this
Why did the VA pay $11 million for parking fees with #WestsideServices you are all ABSENT and @tedlieu you can talk about your service all damn day but you never mention this travesty. #VoteDemsOUT

You didn't know #AnthonyBourdain. You know nothing about his life, torments, demons, nothing. You didn't know #KateSpade either. Watch the torrents of albeit genuine but odd shows of public grief to two complete strangers but nothing for the 20 vets who commit suicide daily.
You want to mourn #suicide? Mourn this. In 2013, the US Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010: roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides.

THREAD: So I’m just leaving the @DeptVetAffairs office in #Austin #Texas. A beautiful new facility with new tv’s, furniture, staff, art, and other fancy schmancy stuff...

cc: @POTUS @GregAbbott_TX
My doctor, which whom I’ve been seeing steadily over the last five years, let’s me in on a little secret. He said the @DeptVetAffairs lacks money to hire more staff, Docs/nurses/clinicians/etc... to support the YUGE amount of #Veterans waiting for care.
Not really a secret, right? We all kinda knew that... Here’s the kicker. Ready for this? Are you sitting down? He said “BUT, there’s a large bucket of money 💰 allotted to BEAUTIFY the #VA clinics throughout #Texas”. (Roughly $10M)
