1 Should the Democrat party be outlawed?
That’s a pretty outlandish question I knew; but I’m not asking it it just because I don’t agree with their politics, no does it come from an emotional response, but rather rational thought, and pride for my country.

2/ Granted for years @TheDemocrats have been calling us “right wing extremists” based on mere opinion(emotion)and no facts.
I’m not coming from that POV.
Let them name call.
If I pose such a question it should be backed up not only with #facts but also law.
I’ll do that.
3/ so on that premise let’s get started.
I’m all about the #1a and our right t free speech, and that may protect ones hate speech but you can’t yell “FIRE” in a crowded movie theatre and hide behind the 1a. This is exactly what @TheDemocrats have been doing, and more.

The #Ukraine call is enough to impeach Trump. His refusal to respond to House subpoenas makes #impeachment even more likely. Despite Democrats’ strategy to keep the impeachment inquiry simple, the House should subpoena the transcript of Trump’s call w/ #Erdogan.
2/ Trump will no doubt refuse to comply. But an #HJC investigation of the #Erdogan call will winnow fact from fiction & eventually yield witnesses, perhaps another whistleblower.
3/ There are critical reasons for looking more closely at the #Erdogan call. On its face, Trump acted unilaterally against a US ally in support of a dictator hostile to that ally — an abuse of presidential power. Digging deeper, the call has an appearance of #QuidProQuo

Texts shows it all happened & more: Trump abused power in the most egregious way imaginable. He extorted vulnerable Ukraine. He held military aid while pressing for a commitment—IN WRITING—to investigate Biden & bogus "NOT Russia collusion." How many Ukrainians died as a result?!
If you don’t feel sick to your stomach reading the nightmare Trump & his corrupt GOP cronies created for Ukraine, how they perverted US State Dept for their pro-Russia goals, you need serious soul-searching and/or propaganda deprogramming. foreignaffairs.house.gov/_cache/files/a… #UkraineGate

1/ "note the use of the phrase “modern times” in the title of chapter 1. This time frame is an imposed restriction since the suspicion or occurrence of clergy malfeasance is no new note in the history of deviance & criminality."

#FreeExpression is a foundational value in a democratic society because it makes choice possible between competing visions of how to organize society. It also makes it possible for citizens to convey their views to leaders, hold inform one another & hold govt to account
So, #FreeExpression is worth standing up for & defending. It also means those charged with regulating it have a high duty to do their job with a high sense of responsibility & due regard to the underlying constitutional & civic value in free expression

For a long time, the way in which #Nigeria's broadcasting regulator, the NBC, undertakes its work has been open to question. Some of the queries it issues to broadcasters leave it open to charges of partisanship & clearly show no regard for constitutional values

"The sitting president of the United States financed an illegal cover-up from inside the White House…The president hosted a foreign leader in the Oval Office, then wrote a check. He haggled over legislation, then wrote a check. He traveled abroad, then wrote a check." So damning
This really shows the absurdity of DOJ policy NOT to indict a sitting president. The greater the evidence of criminality, the greater incentive a criminal POTUS has to stay in office. Trump may seek a 2d term as a result. Why EVER leave if being POTUS prevents legal exposure?!
🤯Trump paid #MichaelCohen $420,000—monthly checks—throughout 2017—signed by Jr, Weisselberg, sitting POTUS
+$130,000 to reimburse payment to keep Stormy silent
+$50,000 to manipulate online polls to inflate Trump’s business reputation
+$180,000 for Cohen's taxes
+$60,000 #bonus

💥BOMBSHELL >> Trump asked Acting AG Whitaker to put US Attorney Berman in charge of Cohen investigation—despite recusal. Just one DROP in the bucket of Trump’s wide-ranging obstruction of justice and abuse of power. New @Nytimes report @MarkMazzettiNYT @maggieNYT #IMPEACHMENT

Whitaker said part of his role at the Justice Dept was to “jump on a grenade” for the president. Looks like he'll get his chance.
⬇︎Whitaker seems to have committed perjury when he testified to Congress that Trump never pressured him about the investigations involving DJT. 🎻

PLEASE RETWEET THIS, OUR ALLIES ARE BETRAYED.

Think about how many more of our military may have died without any allies in the middle east.#Trump is a RUSSIAN AGENT, knowing or unknowingly, our intelligence community is NOT defending us from ALL enemies, foreign or domestic.
If even one military member in Syria is killed trying to retreat from Syria, #POTUS should be charged for #Treason, #AbuseofPower, #Espionage, #Conspiracy with a foreign power
1)#Russia
2)#Turkey
3)#SaudiArabia
4)#Iran

For his own personal interests, NOT national interests
By publicly announcing a military movement to the world, including the time frame, it could not be MORE treasonous and is BEYOND ignorance, it is TREASON.

Beware the Wolf Moon, like the "Ides of March", it will mark a new beginning for a government of, for, and by the people.

#BREAKING Trump Wanted to Order Justice Dept to Prosecute Comey and Clinton. WH Counsel McGahn rebuffed him, saying he had no authority to order DOJ prosecutions and that it would be an abuse of power that would lead to his impeachment via @NYTimes nyti.ms/2zk2G3V?smid=n…
Despite being told it’s an abuse of power, Trump continued to discuss using DOJ to go after— criminally prosecute—both Clinton & Comey. In fact, he’s repeatedly expressed disappointment in FBI Director Wray for failing to more aggressively investigate Clinton, calling him weak
Authoritarian Trump is frustrated with FBI Director Wray for failing to investigate “Uranium One”—a debunked right-wing conspiracy theory about Clinton & the Obama admin’s decision to allow the Russian nuclear agency to buy a uranium mining company.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

THREAD: Remember the claims by @realDonaldTrump & cronies that he'd sit for an interview w/Mueller⁉️

Trump LIED.🙄

Trump’s lawyers have **for months** tried to prevent Mueller from trying to force Trump to answer questions = #subpoena‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/06/02/us/…
In a letter to Mueller, Trump's lawyers claim that Trump "cannot be compelled" to testify.🙄

WRONG! Mueller can #subpoena Trump to FORCE him to testify **in front of the grand jury**.😎

Trump's lawyers CAN be w/him for an interview, but NOT for grand jury testimony.😉 2/
Trump's lawyers also claim Trump "could not possibly have committed obstruction b/c he has unfettered authority over all federal investigations."🤨

Yeah, just ask Nixon about that‼️3/

Most men that I know, men who respect women as equals, are shocked when allegations come out about people like #HarveyWeinstein, #BillCosby, #LouisCK. They are in shock when men they know are accused of sexually harassing or assaulting women. THREAD 1 #BelieveWomen #RWU #MeToo
Some men find it very hard to believe that these things are so common, because they would never DO those things. If I were a man and I hadn’t experienced harassment and inappropriate behavior multiple times, I would probably find it difficult to believe. 2 #MeToo #BelieveHer
I decided to share about what I’ve experienced, so that good men who respect women can start to understand that these things happen to women know they know, work with, are related to, and love, every day. Their friends, neighbors, coworkers, relatives. 3 #sexualharassment
