When the new Congress is sworn in come January, Republicans will immediately begin a series of fake "investigations" into Democrats.

Yes, this is petty and juvenile and stupid, but it has a very dark strategic intent beyond merely smearing Democrats.

1/22
Republicans will, of course, =not= find evidence of any crimes or wrongdoing (though they will pretend they do). It's clear that's not what they're trying to accomplish, because if it was, they're going about it wrong.

2/22
Real investigations investigate crimes, not people. Something bad happens--a murder, a theft, an accident that could possibly be intentional sabotage--and investigators look at the evidence left behind to discover, in detail, what happened and who did it.

With almost 400 million users on Twitter it should come as no surprise that it is actually a pretty good measure for understanding societal interactions and implications as a whole.

A thought experiment.

You can say whatever you want but just like in real life, there are consequences.

If you lie you will be called out on it.
If you are hateful you will be shown the door.

In 2020, the platform decided that you had to be civil in order to provide value to their platform.
They made some difficult choices but realized in order to preserve the platform that was exactly what needed to be done.

Fast forward to today where pandora's box has been opened yet again - and look to today's political discourse.

It is blatantly apparent that civility

#Thread Below is a statement from Sarah Jaynes, a key advisor to the Winning Jobs Narrative project and the Executive Director of the Rural Democracy Initiative: 1/11 #RuralDemocracyInitiative Image
Voters in small cities and rural communities are working people, through and through. They believe in their communities and in this country, even when the country fails to prioritize them and rural economies struggle. 2/11 #RuralVoters #DemPriorities #WorkingAmerica Image
Some right wing leaders have tried to exploit the economic anxiety that many rural Americans justifiably feel.But the Biden Administration & current Congressional majority have taken action with the greatest investments in rural America in the last 50 years. 3/11 #DemPriorities Image

Stewart Rhodes has told the jury that only "patriots" were in the Capital, but there was a conspiracy to kill "antifa" at the Capital.

They were waiting on Donald Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act to murder antifa via 1776 Returns.

aka Congress, @laurenboebert. Image
The Oath Keepers and Proud Boys wanted an antifa-bloodbath.

"Participants around the city should pull fire alarms at various locations like Walmart, hotels, and museums to distract law enforcement if necessary, according to the document."

This election is going to determine the fate of all Americans, and the American Way of Life for generations to come. It will decide who votes, who works, and who lives and dies in this country. It really is that important.
2/
For far too long Americans have had the luxury of coasting along a river of privilege. The routine of our daily lives insulated from the real harshness of daily reality in other parts of the world.

Foreign wars, plagues, and catastrophes are exactly that - foreign.

We see it only through the lens of a camera. Not touching us. Not OF us.

Even domestic tragedies, mass shootings, and acts of domestic terrorism are sanitized in the nightly news, separate from us, almost reduced to the mythology of a "reality show" script.

After reading that article in the federalist (fascist), it’s clear to me that America is in a very dire situation. Every election is going to be challenged or worse, ignored. The right wing have no interest in being in a democracy or a republic. Rather they want one party to /1
rule. It really does sound exactly like the Handmaid’s Tale. They know they are the minority and they demand we follow their rules or we get jailed. It’s insane but that’s what the article says. They want to embrace a totalitarian regime. If they get control they will just /2
refuse to relinquish control. Democracy will be dead. How long can we keep this up? The GOP created this monster and now have become it. I’ve no interest in returning to America so I might relinquish my citizenship for another country. It hinges on this election. Everyone /3

Let's talk about inflation and why Dems should be messaging it HARD 🧵
Wealthy corporations with monopoly power are jacking up their prices, and their profits are going through the roof. Big oil, food, shipping, health care, and real estate companies have been making record profits over the last two years. R's have no plan.
Drug prices & health insurance premiums are going to go down because of the Inflation Reduction Act. Dems want to do even more to lower costs, but the Republicans want to repeal the Inflation Reduction Act, while having no plan of their own.

I asked, for you, if they sell brains at Walmart, the answer is ❝NO.❞ You will probably have to go to a vintage store. Good luck with that, you're welcome.

How did President Trump earn his PERSONAL INCOME in 2017? Oh, HE WAS PRESIDENT, you Nimrod.

What did he DO with his monthly Presidential SALARY? Oh, wait... he DONATED it, to the military, if memory serves (it does, BTW).

He separated himself from the family ❝R.E. (that's short for Real Estate, #idit)❞ business(es), and when you're talking about income tax...

...you're talking about an "individual," so his INCOME was ZERO.

Corporate taxes? Totally separate and I'm pretty certain THAT is what you're attempting to refer to. So do your own frikk'n research on Trump Ent., or #WTF ever it's called, then delete your account.

1/ Short Thread

I’ve read & understood so called intellectual arguments against these facts. They were wrong than & they’re wrong now

Below is 100% factual

1. Americans didn’t VOTE BIDEN in as President in 2020. They voted out the Orange Jester with the nuclear codes.
2/

2. If Stacey Abrams hadn’t pulled off a miracle the Senate would be Republican.

3. We the people didn’t do our job. The Senate was 50/50. Often Dem. Senators win in a Red district. We know those Dems don’t always vote with their party. That made us one Dem short …
3/

… one Dem short of the needed 50 votes

4. The house only had a 5 Dem. lead. We the people didn’t do our jobs. Another well known fact -the Dem party has a Progressive Caucus who doesn’t always agree with the centrists. Nancy Pelosi had to satisfy them to pass bills.

So the "Patriot Front" sneak into the tourist part of Boston, on holiday weekend, afraid to show their face & walk 2 blocks. Then run to the train to get their U-Haul in the suburbs, with a police escort. Insignificant, hate spreading losers #HateWillNotWin

Folks, the fact is if you vote for Republicans in November, our country will go back to 1950s. Women will be expected to submit to men. Racism, already bad enough, could become even worse. Regulating our sexual behavior, choices will become law #VoteBlueIn22
We have millions who still support a man who wanted to declare himself “president” much like Putin and dictators in other countries. The truth is, this party who SAY they want less regulation, is regulating more of our personal choices #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
The current Republicans are self-righteous religious fanatics who feel violent toward any who don’t agree with them. This version of the GOP is the most hate-filled, backward thinking group of people I have seen in my lifetime. #VoteBlueToSaveDemocracy

Thread: Republicans and Uvalde

John Cornyn, like every other Republican trying to defend the indefensible, doesn't care how bad he looks to most Americans. All he has to do is please his donors and the extremists in the base that vote for him out of fear of "communism." Image
One of the main reasons I switched from left to right in 2016 was my enduring support for LEOs & military.

I believed Republican lies about the subject until I saw the abject lawlessness of 1/6. A week prior, I publicly predicted violence, but not the large scale of it.
My support for Republicans had been waning after the 2020 election but it was 1/6 that pushed me out of what I had reluctantly observed was a "cult of personality."

Every R who has obstructed the restoration of the rule of law after #BidenWon, has ONGOING blood on their hands.

Given that cowardly so-called LEOs have waited outside a school massacre twice in the past 5 years (AFAIK), here is an idea:

Along with multiple other things, a school & it's parents could carefully design a system where parents & other adults who give a damn provide security.
I know it sounds extreme but we are in an extreme situation right now, and all lawful/ethical options must be considered on their merits or otherwise.

Meaningfully improving mental health care, making it harder to obtain guns, and hardening the target are all vital steps.
This thread is about just one of those steps: hardening the target.

Many schools have armed LEOs or other persons on site. IMO that is necessary but (evidently) not sufficient.

Having a parental team would be difficult, I know...

By all means I’m a Black Texas Democrat so I could literally write the book on national D neglect of not only Texas Democrats but Democrats in EVERY “former” Confederacy, current Jim Crow, “red”/purple state. We don’t take our ball and go home, we don’t boo louder than we #VOTE.
No, this is the thing. If a Black woman descendant of Jim Crow survivors who’s well steeped in the community organizing tricks of the trade that have been passed down since slavery to the most reliable Democratic voting bloc in American history isn’t apathetic, why are y’all?

The attacks on the DOJ for "not doing enough" to prosecute the Jan 6 insurrectionists--

are THE SAME as the attacks on President Biden for "not doing enough" in Ukraine.

This is coordinated psyops to manipulate YOU.

The message is the same.

1/5
The macho gunslinger "just jump in there and DO IT!" demand is designed to turn you into an angry Republican.

That's how all rightist voters think. With their gonads and their muscles. No nuance. No brain. No strategy.

And hatred and distrust for democratic institutions.

2/5
The Biden Administration is methodical, careful, thoughtful, thorough, and NOT flashy. The cowboy rhetoric is intended to make you impatient with the wheels of democracy.

It's intended to turn you into a leftist Proud Boy.

And then fascism wins.

1/ At this point Republicans are so far outside of the boundaries of actually supporting the United States of America they would cheer Putin on if he invaded Alaska just to make Biden look bad..
2/ so now .. as Russia invades Ukraine.. Republicans at every level of our government and our military are rooting for the guy who is invading our allied nation.
3/ It’s no accident that Trump and tried to coordinate the launch of his social media app with Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on President’s Day. It was a calculated and planned aggression.

2-"When his skyscraper proved a disappointment, Donald Trump defaulted on his loans, sued his bank, got much of the debt forgiven — and largely avoided paying taxes on it,” by David Enrich, Russ Buettner, Mike McIntire and Susanne Craig:
3-“He and his family hoped the Trump International Hotel & Tower would cement their company’s reputation as one of the world’s marquee developers of luxury real estate.

3-"Trump’s club even charged for the smallest of services. When Trump and Abe met alone, with no food served, the government still got a bill for what they drank.
