Due to the latest report of Trump's sexual improprieties, Trumpers have gotten Tara Reade trending again, calling liberals/Democrats hypocrites. Here's the difference: Ms. Reade's allegation was taken seriously, but due to inconsistencies and multiple people discrediting her,
the allegation has been deemed unreliable. To this point, it's been the only such allegation made against Biden. On the flip-side, there have been over 33 such allegations made against Donald Trump. Many of the stories are similar to one another and have largely been consistent.
Said stories have also not been discredited like Ms. Reade's was. Therefore, the single allegation against Joe Biden appeared to be quite out-of-character for him, meanwhile, given Donald Trump's history, similar allegations made against him seem sadly in-character.

Why do I tweet so much politics? I rarely did prior to Trump. But he has turned a discussion about politics into a discussion about Democracy. Politics is largely emotional, Democracy is not. In our country, the keyholder to our Democracy is...
The President. The President sets direction, ideology, tone and represents it both domestically and abroad. The President builds the team of professionals to set policy on economics, health care, education, infrastructure, science and tech, foreign relations, the military.. safety nets, immigration, law, our response to crisis and the environment and represents how we express those policies both here and abroad. The character of the President is a barometer around the world to America’s response to threat and participation to our friends..

Trump’s National Security Strategy, signed Dec ‘17. Clearly he failed to read/follow this—although he signed it. @realDonaldTrump @GOP @SenateGOP @SenateDems @KamalaHarris @JoeBiden @HouseJudiciary @RepAdamSchiff @RepJerryNadler @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer
Spoiler alert: Russia, North Korea, & other “authoritarian regimes” like China, Saudi, are not our buddies: due to brutality/oppression of citizens. Additionally, notes Russian cyber attacks on elections & invasions of Georgia, Ukraine (Belarus). Repeat: NOT OUR BUDDIES.
Non-proliferation of nuclear weapons is a long-standing U.S. goal. However, Trump saw opportunity to MAKE MONEY & sold nuclear power plants to the “oh-so-stable” Saudi dictator, MBS. Who brutally murdered Jamal Khashoggi. Saudi provided 15 of 19 terrorists on 9/11.

Beware, some smart people are speaking truth about today's two major political parties with relation to Blacks, but truth devoid of context is not factual - context matters. Let's briefly set the record straight. A thread:
1/ Today's Democratic party was the 1800s & early 20th century Republican party (literally) & had Black support. Lincoln was in fact a Republican, but here's context: he was moderate-left on social issues (he opposed slavery but supported segregation).
2/ A notable transition started in the 1920's: Republicans refused to pursue civil rights (go further left), which alienated black voters (who overcame suppression ref: poll tax.). In late 20s, Hoover, a Republican President, ingratiated himself with southern segregationists.

There’s so much fresh hell going on I didn’t hear what that sheriff said until now.

That sheriff wants to warehouse black men. He wants a generation to die out in those warehouses.

That is what Hitler thought, too. #VoteBlue PLEASE!
#DavidBeth said this publicly because he knows that there are many—including the “president”—who feel the same way. This tells me that he’s talked about this idea with people & they said nothing to dissuade him. He thinks he’s cracked the code & genocide is the answer.
This was said in America in 2020.

When I beg you all to register and #vote it’s because Sheriffs are usually elected. Many in law enforcement are.

Judges are elected, too.

A judge would sentence these black men to those warehouse concentration camps for them to die.

#Independents & #progressives who aren't sure they're going to #VoteBiden should spend 20 mins finding out what's really at stake from 3 top (former) #Republican strategists. Their answer is EVERYTHING. /thread…
@SteveSchmidtSES 1>#Republicans have no platform. Literally. They are officially a cult of personality.

2>#RNC made lawless use of the people's house, the most powerful symbol of the state. Trump's in effect saying he IS the state, he IS the law.
Schmidt: 3>Trump campaign & #RNC know using the #WhiteHouse & WH staffers for the convention is illegal & did it anyway. Trump doesn't just demand loyalty. He demands his staff break the law as proof that HE is the law. "The light's gone from flashing yellow to flashing red."

1. As yet more Jerry Falwell Jr. scandals come to light, I've decided to do a thread of everything I've ever written about him and Liberty University in the context of exposing evangelical authoritarianism. But let's start with the latest and a summary for those late to the party
The latest is this. "Pool boy" Giancarlo Granda has now accused Falwell of sharing a picture with him of a Liberty University student exposing herself on the Falwells' farm.

Now to where we've been over the last few days…

#WednesdayThoughts #EmptyThePews
3. So, in an attempt to get ahead of the damning revelations about to drop re: Jerry Falwell watching while Granda cuckolded him, Falwell tried to blame the whole thing on his wife. Called it an affair "in which I was not involved."

Becki F. is now pushing the same apparent lie

1st, I’m a progressive.
But come on progressives, are “Medicare For All,” “The Green New Deal,” or “Ending Citizen’s United” the hills you want to die on? If you do, there will be no living to fight another day.
We need to defeat tRump if we are going to have a chance to live to fight another day. We cannot afford the luxury of being purists, arguing about whether or not the party will or won’t move completely away from fossil fuels or will or won’t embrace Medicare for all.

If we hold out for those demands we will find ourselves living in a dictatorship with zero freedoms. We can fight for the other things later. If we don’t take a stand against tRump right now, there won’t be anything left to save.

Since Trump is clearly trying to impede vote by mail for the upcoming election, it’s important that citizens know what they can do to maximize the chances their mail-in ballot is counted.

#VoteByMail #VoteByMail2020 #VoteBlue #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica2020 #AbsenteeBallot
First and foremost, drop your mail-in ballot off at a polling place on election day if you can. You can get a delivery receipt and it completely bypasses the postal service. If you can't do it yourself, you can designate someone else to do it for you.
To ensure that it is postmarked in time, I'd drop it in the mail at least a week before election day. The sooner the better though.

And finally, to counteract any “insufficient postage” issues, COPY THE DELIVERY ADDRESS INTO THE SPACE FOR THE RETURN ADDRESS.

Here’s a thread on trump’s executive orders -
I owned an accounting , tax & payroll business for 30 years, so I do have some expertise in these matters. What trump calls “payroll taxes” is the $ used to fund Social Security & Medicare.

Almost all of us have been paying into this fund our entire working lives. It exists to insure that we will have money and medical care when we are too old or disabled to work. When this “tax” gets cut it means there is less money for each of us when we need it.
The payroll tax “holiday” only affects people who are working. It does nothing to help the millions who are unemployed. The $400/wk. in additional federal unemployment benefits is dependent on already struggling states being able to fund 25% of the payments.

Bookstore owner down here in South Carolina placed the recent book, "White Fragility," in her store window and is now receiving death-threats.

Can we talk about this?…
So many things to unpack here.

First of all, conservative cancel culture is and always has been alive and well.…
Where'd that "party of free speech" stuff go, anyway?…

An unmarked NYPD cruiser struck a black teenager on Halloween.

When this writer tried to find out more, he learned how the NYPD is shielded from accountability for their many abuses.

#BeTheChange4Justice ⚖️…
Some examples of their egregious abuses:
•NYPD arrested Black/Latino boys at alarming rates while the kids were doing age-appropriate activities.
•They were randomly selected and charged w/out legitimate reason.
•The NYPD didn’t notify parents.

#BeTheChange4Justice ⚖️
Abuses, contin’d:

• Children were held for running from plainclothes officers.
• Event descriptions were changed to meet officers’ needs to avoid accountability: the unmarked NYPD cruiser striking the kid turned into the kid running into the police car despite witnesses.

I’m 34.

I’m just wondering how old my followers are?

Not that it matters.

Just thought it would be an interesting Sunday question.
Also. The last 90 days has actually been 17 millenniums.
Mr. Wynn is almost 10 months!
