After night one of the televised #January6thCommitteeHearings, the reality of what happened on that day has been brought into sharper, more terrifying focus.

We already knew what happened. But there were some new reveals. 🧵
We saw clips of Bill Barr saying Trump’s election fraud claims were “bullshit,” Ivanka Trump saying she was influenced by Barr because he’s always so trustworthy, and Jared saying all he really cared about was getting as many of his criminal associates pardoned as possible. (2/x)
Even for those who already knew Trump was a frantic psychopath, it was shocking to hear Liz Cheney say: "Aware of the rioters’ chants to ‘hang Mike Pence,’ the president responded with this sentiment: ‘Maybe our supporters have the right idea.’ Mike Pence ‘deserves it.’" (3/x)

A #Uvalde 🧵

The steel doors designed to keep killers out were used by the shooter to keep police out. w/o a key to open them, police would've had to use infantry techniques (explosives) to breech the outer walls. The kids and teachers were not the enemy. Blowing holes /1
in walls, police indiscriminately spraying the room with bullets, or engaging a full body armored shooter using kids as human shields were NOT good options. (Imagine THAT forensic pathology report it would have generated, proof police killed X number of the innocent during /3
entry). 7 police entered Robb Elementary hallway (inverted T-shaped) 2-3 minutes after the shooter. The shooter had locked the doors and was slaughtering. From doorway, shooter sprayed police (who lacked cover) with bullets, wounding 2. Shooter wore full body armor. Police /4

They are right: Uvalde could have been so much worse. At Beslan, 333 were killed, incl 185 children. Those marauders also planned, hit a soft target, shot the protectors, baited a trap with the screams of the innocent, barricaded to ambush responders, and wanted to die in place.
COL @KurtSchlichter is right: We need to *know* [e/a] a lot more from officials about how this 18-year-old grew to become the shooter, acquired upwards of 5K for guns and gear, and why he targeted Robb Elementary. We need to *know* how and why the police responded as they did.
First reports -- because much is always initially unknown -- are almost always wrong. Police now say no police confronted the shooter before he entered. They hope to speak to his grandmother as they have information this attack was "premeditated."

He had gone to school in

Every single time I talk to a Thin Blue Line supporter about why I believe #ACAB they assume I don’t know many cops or much about policing or I’ve had a bad experience and generalized it.

This is very incorrect.

1/
I am the grandchild of a Chief Superintendent of the Ontario Provincial Police. I grew up in a cop loving #BackTheBlue family. I was taught cops are heroes, doing dangerous work. In fact, my grandpa encouraged me to report cops who weren’t doing right, even just speeding.

I’m married to the grandchild of a chief detective of the Ottawa Police Service. He also grew up in a cop revering family. His cousin is currently a police officer.

There are many issues that Republicans use as slogans when they run for office because they are too complicated for a Republican voter to understand. Donald Trump is proving every day the average GOP voter cannot handle complex issues. He made everything color by numbers. Like:
1) Donald Trump says you either love the police of hate the police.
Republicans come out in droves with the #BackTheBlue hashtag and amplify the #DefundThePolice hashtag. The issue? Not that simple. You CAN support police officers and demand an end to police corruption and abuse.
2) Donald Trump says the borders are wide open!
Forgetting the ludicrous "Mexico will pay for it" thing, the border is supported by BOTH parties. Trump wants areas that are already patrolled by the Border Patrol, covered by natural barriers, and owned by private citizens taken

Falsifying public records(lying/ omitting/ inserting) = Forgery 1: ORS 165.013

You can't change what you've done/ said that's already recorded and in violation of #DomesticTerrorism and #ORICO/#RICO laws.

Intentional/negligent/reckless unlawful charges after "notice" = Forgery. Image

Never forget!
#Sheriff's stood by like pu$$ie$ for the last 7 years of #riots and #DomesticTerrorism.
The #blue never backed you.
They helped shut down businesses.
They helped governors kill the young and old.
They helped kidnap and extort you for not wearing a mask.
#BackTheBlue
The #DomesticTerrorists would actually be completely powerless, if "#LawEnforcement" wasn't aiding and abetting, hindering prosecution, and failing and refusing to do their duties as the law dictates.
Interesting to think about... who's the real #EnemyOfThePeople here? 🤔
I wouldn't be facing false charges or be maliciously prosecuted to attempt to hide their embarrassing criminal conduct(already exposed for all to see), if #LawEnforcement did their duty.
I wouldn't have even been able to expose the widespread corruption, had they done their job.

They’re back….crafty devils left the bullhorns at home and brought COWBELLS. @MayorWu maybe you stop being a dictator, talk to @EdforBoston and call a City Council meeting for #NoVaxMandates
No quit. “Who is the Mayor? @MayorWu or @JoeBiden, #Soros ” Wu is devoted to DC narrative. Bright side w/ these moms you’ll never have a chance to be called “SleepyMichelle”

Black men (who arent Democrat/Liberal/Progressive) getting ready to do the Electric Slide thinking they would get the same exact treatment in a "self-defense trial". 😄

Just look at how The #BackTheBlue Crowd aka MAGA/White Republicans/White Conservatives treated
28-YEAR LAW- ENFORCEMENT VETERAN
Lieutenant Bryd. It had been all "BACK THE BLUE" for YEARS until a BLACK police officer did his job like so many White cops. They then minimized the
crime Ashli Babbitt was committing knowing damn well if it was a man who looked like Ahmaud Arbery, they would have pulled out their tired-ass talking points.:
1. "He should have complied."
2. Just comply and you'll be fine.
3. "He rushed through window and didn’t heed the call."

~0-[Converting the police to a Public Safety Department, and being subject to the supervision of the Mayor would make the Public Safety Department purely political and serving the Mayor, when in fact they need to be serving 'the People'.] #BackTheBlue #VoteNoOn2 #DefundThePolice
~1- [This a direct attempt to politicize the function and create another barrier between the People and the Servants who are supposed to serve the People (not the Mayor).] #BackTheBlue #VoteNoOn2 #Minneapolis #DefundThePolice
~2- [A key question is this: How would this amendment strengthen law enforcement and the judicial system by keeping criminals off the street and support the Peoples' 4th amendment right to be secure in their homes, their persons and their papers?]

Condi Rice is, evidently, incapable of feeling shame.

Note she said "my party."

It's not MY party, anymore, I ran for the hills and am now firmly #XGOP. Not a liberal, either. I'm pro-democracy, period.

Condi is anti-democracy, and did NOTHING to stop Trump in 2016 or 2020.
1. There an be no clearer sign that Condoleezza Rice is, like McConnell, McCarthy and the rest, bought and paid for by wealthy donors. Not directly, but in the shadows.

2. #TheView only invited her onto the show to talk about the late Colin Powell. Instead, she...
... blatantly used the opportunity to act as an apologist for the GOP / GQP at a time when the survival of American democracy itself requires her to speak up.

3. As a black woman, she clearly doesn't care about the well-funded assault on voting rights that's more urgent than

Sky himself was lackadaisical about merchandise sales in #Hanover. He and Jenny lingered after the rally to greet people lining up to shake his hand— for free.
In #Peterborough (Oct ‘21), Sky used garbage bags for storage & display but acquired a tent.

The task of selling merchandise was delegated to volunteers. Meanwhile, Jenny appeared to collect/keep tabs on the money and Sky stood a slight distance away for his meet-and-greet.
Despite poor display & logistics, the Skys managed to do brisk business. Cash only. #Peterborough

For many years, I've concentrated my social media presence on Facebook, due to its vastly improved engagement with my 3,000 personal followers, plus an additional 3,000 or so followers on @RadicalSecular page.
For those of you who may not know me well, The Radical Secular is a weekly podcast I began producing in June of 2020 with my partners @ChristopheDifo, @Joe_Occhipinti, and Drew Scott.
Twitter's always been a poorer cousin of FB as a social network, for those of us who aren't already household names. It's slow work to build up a following. Twitter's feed can't compete with the immediate response from an FB profile, political page, or group.

Time for a quick thread about the meaning behind every little part of my current Twitter profile that communicates a value that is important to me.

#CovidIsAirborne
#CountryOverParty
#EndFascism

🇳🇿🇺🇸
In around April 2020 I changed my username from @GodlessNZ to @FreedomFriesInc.

This account was originally set up to participate in secularism discussions. From Feb 2016 it morphed into 95% US politics. A topic I love to follow.
#FreedomFries pops up in the news from time to time and is still largely misunderstood in the US.

In 2003 it was a joke "trend" or "meme" among those who supported the US-led coalition to topple Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

I supported it and still do.

@Newsweek⁩ You are a piece of trash to publish this hit piece on a woman who died today. #VeronicaWolski was my friend. I do not read etc Q posts. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I am a retired FBI Agent who befriended this kind heart in Chicago. newsweek.com/qanon-veronica…
You erroneously quote information put out about animal ivermectin in response to her request to be treated with HUMAN GRADE ivermectin, which WAS PRESCRIBED BY HER ICU PHYSICIAN! He was then forbidden by @AMITAhealth to administer it to her.
If the ICU DR prescribed it, he believed it would help. HUMAN GRADE ivermectin is used all the time, EXCEPT IN COVID PATIENTS BECAUSE OF DISINFORMATION PUT OUT WIDELY BY THE MEDIA & POLITICIANS, as well as those who PROFIT on the NOT THOROUGHTLY TESTED VACCINES & MEDS being used.
