The @GOP and @TheDemocrats pour hundreds of billions of dollars into the @DeptofDefense every year so they can pursue the latest fighter jet, destroyer, spacecraft, or what have you, on the basis that wars are won by, in addition to the best soldiers, superior weaponry.
Incorrect. Wars involve, and are won through, the application of *all* elements of national power. Sometimes that means weapons. Right now, it mostly doesn't.
George Bush called for the bombing of #US as The US Harbors violent #terrorists regarded by #FBI & Justice Department as Terrorists such as Orlando Busch, an anti #Cuban terrorist accused by FBI of 30 acts of terrorism such as blowing up of the Cubana Airline killing 73 people
If you dance to #TelAviv’s tune—&, sadly, #Trump does—then you believe that the only folk who support #Palestinians are either religion-hating, secular Lefties or radical #Islamists & #Hamas cheerleaders who hang out on the fringes of society. The reality is quite different.
The reality is different as was illustrated admirably at a remarkable gathering of mainstream #American#Christians in St Louis, #Missouri when the #Presbyterian Church overwhelmingly adopted a No. of robust resolutions in solidarity with #Palestine at its 223rd General Assembly
I'm one of a few million Americans awake when we should be sleeping because of the pain of #cancer or some other chronic illness.
Adding to our sleeplessness is knowing #healthcare is under threat. We may not be able to afford it due to the #GOP's actions.
My parents were Civil Rights workers. My father was a Freedom Rider. As a small child I was taught the legacy of #MLK.
I watched people invoking MLK on Monday. Not in defense of #votingrights or in outrage over how the #SCOTUS ruled on two pivotal cases on gerrymandering.
MLK wasn't being invoked for #votingrights but for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who lies to America every day about policies that could very well kill me & others.
Policies that are hurting millions.
Policies that have kept me a citizen without equal rights in my own country.
Pruitt's new policy proposal restricting #science is his most destructive action yet This "restricting science" rule censors the #science that we can use, in favor to Big #Polluters limiting the data that links their industries to deadly #health impacts.
The clock is ticking, will you add your name today?
WHY IS ERIC SCHMIDT CONNECTED TO SO MANY MURDERS IN THE X-KEY-SCORE DATABASE?
You can look these murders, and possible murders, up yourself. You will find that they did happen, they were all suspicious !
1.Len #Blavatnik owns a company called Al-Altep Holdings and Access Industries, and has contributed vast amounts of money to the #GOP and #Senate Leadership Fund and #Trump, inclusive of 1 Million to the Inauguration of #Trump.
When did the White House know of the serious domestic abuse concerns regarding Rob Porter, the now fallen White House Staff Secretary?
(2) This question is crucial to determining whether those in the White House deliberately ignored security warnings and instead politically decided to retain Porter.
(3) As I told @JudyWoodruff on @NewsHour tonight there were at least 3-4 opportunities where WH had enough info to realize there were serious problems w/Porter obtaining a clearance and they could have, and perhaps should have, taken action. pbs.org/newshour/show/….
