What happened to Michael Hastings @JohnBrennan? #WeRemember
For those wondering why the random post, pass by this tree often and for years someone keeps placing a flag at base of tree because: this was not an accident.

Sophie Scholl was a German student & antifascist activist with the White Rose non-violent resistance. She was convicted of high treason after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich w/ her brother, Hans she was executed by guillotine at 21.
Anne Frank is one of the most notable victims of the Holocaust. I was obsessed with her as a child and recommend reading her diary in full. Recently new pages were unearthed and uncensored reminding us that our hero’s are deeply human and ordinary.…

Thinking on #HolocaustMemorialDay about one particular story among millions that I read recently at Yad Vashem, and which I've thought about most days since
A wealthy man who feared for his family's safety had sold his house & used the money to buy a diamond and emerald necklace, which he could use either in the future or to trade for their safety. The necklace was hidden under some floor boards
He & his wife were sent to the camps. His wife was murdered. He somehow managed to survive. He was eventually released & years later went back. The necklace was still there. He couldn't bring himself to sell it. He later donated it to Yad Vashem, where it still sits #WeRemember

Today is #HolocaustMemorialDay⁠ ⁠and I’m reminded of my great-grandmother, who I was lucky enough to have in my life as my safe space and champion until her 90s. Her story of survival from Poland, to France, and finally to the US is one I’m grateful to have on paper.
Esther Rose Thumim was a remarkable woman. Fleeing Poland under Nazi occupation was no easy task. My great-grandparents saved my grandmother’s life in the process, while losing family along the way. They arrived in France when my grandmother was a small child.
When they came the US, through Ellis Island, my great-grandfather was sent to another state for quarantine, leaving my great-grandmother to work and take care of my grandmother alone for years before he was released and came back to New York.

My Opa & Oma Heiman van der Velde & Rebecca van der Kaars were Holocaust survivors. The Nazis stole their home & business but they managed to bury their car in the hopes that if they survived, with a car, they could start a business. #HolocaustMemorialDay

The speech I just delivered at @HolocaustUK’s event.
Important #WeRemember and learn from the mistakes of the past, huge thanks to everyone who continues to spread this message.
#BeLouder against antisemitism.
#EnoughIsEnough 🙏❤️ #HMD2019
My speech is dedicated with love to all the victims and survivors of the Holocaust, and all the modern-day backchannel mensches. You know who you are ❤️
After I gave my speech on Tuesday for @HolocaustUK, Auschwitz survivor, Lily Ebert, came up to me shocked by what she’d heard, and immediately asked - what could she do to help? Lily is almost 90 years old, she’d given 3 talks that day, reliving her heartbreaking stories of what

I'm not a dog person. I don't do figurines on mantels collecting dust. This little red dog is the last thing I would choose. Yet it has pride of place in our home. This little red dog contains the story of the Holocaust for my husband's family. It survived. #WeRemember /1
The little red dog’s story is of death, life, horror and kindness. It began with my Jewish husband's maternal family in Croatia, sat on a mantel in a modest house in Zagreb. In 1943 the little red dog was abandoned, forgotten on that mantel when my husband's grandparents fled. /2
The little red dog sat there in the empty house, where no human sounds lived. Then one day, while its family were running for their lives from the fascist Ustaše, a kindly neighbour's hands scooped it up and hid it in a trunk along with precious family photos. /3

Der #16Januar 1945 in #Magdeburg ist umkämpft. Neonazis planen einen Aufmarsch nutzen, der den NS rehabilitieren soll. Für ein demokrat. Gedenken an den Bombenkrieg heißt das, die Vielfalt der Perspektiven wahrzunehmen - auch jenseits der Mehrheitsgesellschaft. @BgRMagdeburg

Admiral Ronny Jackson was destroyed because of false accusations brought by @jontester. If we don’t fight back more lives will be ruined. Tell Democrats that true Americans believe in the presumption of innocence.
You know what to do Montana.
Vote @MattForMontana #mtsen
Important to note that @SenatorTester knew it wasn’t “opioids” that Dr. Jackson gave it was Ambien which is VERY common for every Administration to take, yet he allowed headlines to run rampant with lies and bastardized a serious epidemic. #VoteDemsOut
Colin Powell openly admitted that “everybody uses Ambien” yet all of the sudden Ronny Jackson was the monster? We must demand that they #ClearTheirNames #RonnyJackson

So children are taken away from their parents because our sick gov't believes they are worthless & then they are given away to be abused because our sick gov't thinks they are worthless.

This is a humanitarian crisis.
This is critically emergent!

You sure about that @MichaelAvenatti “no pending disciplinary proceedings against you” did @StateBarCA not receive a complaint about you? Is your former law partner Jason Frank not suing you? Unpaid taxes ring a bell or maybe #TullysCoffee ? Judge Wood must be smarter than this?
Apparently we will know soon.
Whoops! @MichaelAvenatti 100% lied to the State of New York there is in fact a complaint under review. Are attorneys allowed to file false statements🤷🏼‍♀️ @NewYorkStateAG @TheJusticeDept…

Sorry for the rant but #MichaelHastings deserves justice he was being investigated by the FBI at the time of his death, all things old deserve new light. #WeRemember
Obama appointee at DHS suggests to the "team" that maybe they should just call #MichaelHastings to help him understand the mission. One year later he was dead.
Attn: @MercedesBenz do your vehicles normally become engulfed in flames with minimal front end damage? Also do your engines fly through the air? #Askingforafriend #MichaelHastings

☎️ Just a friendly reminder that the Obama admin #wiretapped over 20 reporters at the @AP including their personal phones and general lines. Have you forgotten that @CNN @MSNBC @abcnews @nytimes but surely his admin wouldn’t do that to @realDonaldTrump 🙄 #FISAMemo
How quickly we forget #MSM “sheer volume of records obtained” and “overboard collection” oddly @AP removed this letter from their site. #FISAMemo #DisclosuresTribunal #NunesMemo
It’s funny that #Brennan is so angry with #Nunes probably just because he misses having the power to lead the #WitchHunt on journalists that reported negatively on Obama. Didn’t @CNN just give him a job? 😂🤣 #NunesMemo #wikileaks…

🤡 (1) Twitter has never been all that friendly to conservatives but more than ever accounts are vanishing, week long twitmo punishments handed out, IP bans, #shadowbans and now big accounts are under attack. Spoiler alert: it’s going to get worse and here’s why... #seanhannity
(2) We all got “the email” the one that basically debunked #RussiaBots but @SenFeinstein & @AdamSchiffCA still wrote a letter (more on that later) BUT did you read the blog $TWTR shared? Because it’s important they informed us they had partners helping now. Who are they?
(3) Let’s start with the big fish, Common Sense Media, based out of San Francisco, hugely funded and owned by James (aka Jim) Steyer and guess who his brother is??
