FACT:

The @DNC elected Trump when they rigged '16's primary against his only competition by dbl. digits, @SenSanders, who was beating him by dbl. digits, so as to push '08's loser (to the relatively unknown PBO), HRC, who couldn't win on merit w/her centrist war hawk record.
2/

HRC took control of the @DNC's $$ in Aug '15 per D. Brazile's book. Who get to do that in a "democratic society?"

The @DNC was outed via LEAKED emails for domestic election interference in their own damning words.

They claimed, hyped by 'lib' MSM, that Russia hacked them.
3/

HRC's @DNC, a private entity, refused the FBI access to their server to verify the hacking claim.

Yes, really.

Who gets to do that? Accuse a super-power of election interference but deny US gov't agencies access?

Apparently HRC & estbl. Dems.

So who made the assessment?

Writing about #Biden's role in mass incarceration this week.
Congress's mandatory sentencing laws during the Reagan-Bush years were the most Draconian in modern US history.
That's something Biden will have to explain if he ever campaigns outside white working class enclaves.

When I was teaching literacy in prisons & halfway houses while in the domestic Peace Corps in Louisiana & Pennsylvania, every one of my students was functionally illiterate. That means unable to read above a 5th grade level, the level deemed able to function as an adult.
2/
These men and women were unable to read the instructions on a medication bottle, a food preparation label, a street map, an employment form. Imagine not being able to read how to prepare your child's meds or food, or apply for a job? Where does that leave you in adult society?

📌If it is proven that Trump knowingly exaggerated his net worth, then journalists need to start using the word ‘lied.’

📌When anyone lies to a bank in order to receive credit or approval to underwrite a securities issue, this is called fraud.

♥️Huggers♥️

📌Inv’n presented numerous incidents going back 20 years of Trump “inflating his wealth” when trying to obtain approval for loans or securities underwriting.

These incidents seriously call into question the quality of Deutsche Bank’s risk management enterprise-wide.
♥️Huggers♥️

📌NY's attorney general is one of the most powerful in the nation. That should worry Trump.

📌If you're under the impression that the high crimes and misdemeanors we have recently witnessed will go unpunished in America, then you haven't been paying attention.

This is a seriously odd story.
Glad he's okay.
It takes a big wound to require 7 stitches.
Did he fall THROUGH the shower door?
(I have the poverty level curtain, so I can't imagine a shower door.)

Sanders cuts head on shower door, receives 7 stitches politi.co/2HoxhTP
Remember when Hillary had a cough and Donna Brazile wrote in her book that she was going to replace Hillary with Joe Biden and no one thought that was the craziest freaking thing they ever heard because trashing Hillary was a national pastime?
It's 24hrs since #Bernie told his "I walked into a door" story about his head wound, for which he has this huge bandage, and I seem to be the only journalist in America asking about it.

If this were a woman, we wouldn't believe her story, just as I don't believe Bernie's story.

Published AUG 2016 after #Bernie flipped and slammed Hillary … @ericgarland THREAD what we (#ProDemocracy) had been watching. America doesn’t just have a problem with #Fascist#Trumpies on Right THEY have problem at other side of political Horseshoe too tinyurl.com/y9yznpqt
2019 Update.. SO America believed about the #Trump #Fascist #RightWingers .. enough to elect a DEM house (finally after 8 yrs) and they have gone to work for #WeThePeople as @RepCummings showed the country yesterday. At their THIRD Hearing. First was Report CHILD MURDER by TRUMP
NOW it’s up to us to expose the #AltLEFT or as we #ProDemocracy centrists call it. Just the other face of the PUTIN puppet show. Remember how #Bernie has ‘always’ been nonaligned? Then said he was DEM in 2018. Don’t believe it. He is PUTINS #FallbackGuy ASK @20committee for def

2) downplayed. We know the corrupt will not go down easily. With no evidence they will create investigations in the attempt to drag the issue out until #Election2020 is near. The Southern District of #NYAg is starting an investigation to, wait 4it, find a crime! #MadMaxine wants
3) 2investigate #POTUS' finances. #Dems are working their #House majority creating investigations, all 4political theatre. It a stall tact which they know will produce zero results. The #Patriots are in full control at the levels which truly count.

Hey just a quick public service announcement.

Making the 2020 comversation about the online behavior of a candidates supporters mostly serves to move the conversation about bigger issues like policy and fitness for office.

#BERNIE THREAD /1
At the risk of sounding condescending I feel like there are 4 things we should ask in this primary.

1. What are your policies ?

2. Are you proposing them in good faith?

3. Will you be effective in implimenting them?

4. are you fit for office?

This needs unpacking...

.../2
So the hardest questions are 2-4.

Whether a politician is seen as operating in good faith is often tied to whether we think a politician is "authentic."

This shit is huuuuuuugely sexist and priveledges men over women.

1) Time to shelve #Bernie!
#KamalaHarris is back!
#Breitbart returns to the sacrificial early runner redelivering some history. #Harris, worked her way up dating(?) #WillieBrown. In 1994, then-outgoing #Speaker of the #CAStateAssemblyBrown appointed Harris to a state board....
2) with a $72,000 salary.
#Brown wrote in the #SanFranChronicle that he dated her & influenced her carrier.
breitbart.com/politics/2019/…
#NepotismMuch
Watch the money when she drops out of the #2020Race. It's all about #TheMoney...
3) One of the little nuggets that are left out of #WillieBrown's admission ==> #Brown had separated in 1982, but never divorced, so the statement is in fact #True... As well, that she used the affair for advancement. Her personal preferences/proclivities have since surfaced.

@gregolear FYI - Putin fired Trump at Helsinki. Look at the body language.

Trump was the *One* of a One-Two Combination, Trump from the RIGHT, #Bernie from the LEFT.

Putin's no longer supporting Trump or the GOP, he's backing #Bernie2020 with AOC as his token-PoC/female as VP candidate.
@gregolear BTW, Putin wants Trump out ASAP. He's done as much damage as Putin could have hoped for, and is, like Assange, starting to stink up the place.

Putin wants Pence to destroy Christianity in America, and figures that should take a couple of years.

*THEN*, it's #Bernie/AOC's turn.
@gregolear And Putin figures that with AOC's charisma and eye-candy appeal, we stupid Amerikanskis will forget all about #Bernie's known associations with Putin's goons and his own unsavory aspects, and PoC/women will vote for the AOC part of the team.

And he'll f*k-up our economy.

I have a few things to say about this piece that just dropped...

Why the #Bernie Movement Must Crush #BetoORourke
nymag.com/intelligencer/…
The insistence by white male writers that there is a two-white-man race out there between Bernie & Beto is so deeply, stunningly misogynist, it takes my breath away.

How is it POSSIBLE that these folks missed the blue wave which was fundamentally female--driven by women voters?
Not just driven by women voters, but driven by women candidates. Left-leaning women candidates, including WOC who ousted long-time older white male incumbents like....Bernie Sanders.

How is anyone missing this fact?
It's a major reason why Sanders' numbers have plummeted.

THREAD (1/3): #BERNIE vs #BETO

The 2020 Dem primary is going to be intense one way or the other. The stakes are too high for it not to be. Heading into 2019, we'll see lots of early maneuvering and skirmishes. That's fine, AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT CHARACTER ATTACKS.
THREAD (2/3): #BERNIE vs #BETO

A character attack directly impugns the honesty, integrity, and/or ethics of a candidate. Examples: Candidate X is a liar. Candidate Y is immoral. An issue debate is perfectly acceptable, i.e. Candidate Z is wrong on health care, the economy, etc.
THREAD (3/3): #BERNIE vs #BETO

Neither #BernieSanders nor #BetoORourke have announced if they are running. Supporters of each should feel free to battle out the issues, BUT AVOID CHARACTER ATTACKS. We cannot afford to give needless ammunition to the GOP.

you want to know what happened, i can show you.
first @thedemocrats and @GOP swapped places.

this was called the #southernstrategy and is what got Reagan elected.

anyone remember the #moralmajority? (which was neither, btw)
then, @TheDemocrats proceeded to sidle up to the corporations, eventually over taking the role of corporate money funnel to drain the 99% of any hope for retirement, health security, or peace.

all whilst while china wealthy and building their middle class.

To that point. it is also, IMHO, about Character and Leadership ...
🔸about the ability to achieve those same policies
🔸the fight in the person
🔸the aptitude for achieving within a group
I may not be saying this very well, but these things matter.
Really?!!
[I'm going to bring this back into the convo thread]

So .. REALLY ?! Come on now. Here's a little of what #Bernie achieved as an Indie in Congress DURING that period..

1. Dear You-Who-Can't-Understand-Why-I-Don't-Adore-Bernie:
I apologize for the length of this thread but I feel it is necessary to explain why there's a huge segment of #Democrats who can't stomach him. Let's first start with him - aside from attending one protest in college
2. where he was arrested and released, and claiming to have attended others, his record on civil rights is scant; as is his record on LGBTQ rights, women's issues and anything else that doesn't have to do with seizing the wealth of those detested "millionaires and billionaires"
3. he's obsessed with taking down and "redistributing" it. He was a back-bencher, quite literally, all his life. In 2015, mostly because of his dislike of the Clintons (one of those families who's wealth he'd like to seize) he (regrettably) got on the ticket for the

allow me to explain:

first thing to realize is that compromise usually involved splitting the difference (e.g. arbitration -- if you've ever been privy, you know exactly what i mean).

next you need to understate that starting positions matter
now we come to the republicans..

they know to start out WAY to the right of anything sane

democrats, being slightly more reasonable tend to open with somthing they thing will win the other side over to their POV.

... it ... will ... not ....

so this happens.
after a few years of this (say since 1980) you end up with both parties being FAR to the right of anything that a rational person would consider CENTER

enter #bernie sanders and his populist, moderate policy positions like #medicareforall or raising the minimum wage

Based on this nbc data you can still find lots of bot/troll accounts twitter missed.
how to:
Search hashtags ON a date.
Search for the actual tweets.
the accounts all "look" the same, low status counts, low follower counts, created at the same tnbcnews.com/tech/social-me…gbquNiCcd2
just using that and a tip from @z3dster gets me 6 accounts to look at.

@MarlonStepherd
@Mich_Heart_Rt
@DannyyyyPayton
@Joe_B_R
@worynynizuzy
@rogyvahumin

those are all troll factory/internet research agency accounts.
so pull the accounts that follow them.
you get all these shady looking accounts with the same stats.
drop the false positives, drop the duplicates. you get about 180 accounts worth looking at.

1) Disturbing to me in #Mueller indictments was allegation of #Russia plant of #IaCaucus #Fraud stories. That broke the back of the party in #Iowa 4 2016 cycle. Caused mass party switches to independent in some parts of #IA. Remember #DemExit? #TrumpRussia #IaPolitics #IaDem
When #DemExit on #twitter & #FB was ongoing, I had a face2face discussion in #Fairfield of voter registration changes at the #JeffersonCounty court house. There were quite a few -- a direct consequence of #Bernie people being angry cuz they had seen SM fraud stories. #IaPolitics
3) I really saw damage from #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud allegations in Oct 2016 going door-to-door in #Fairfield. The #DemVoter lists were "squishy." Lots of changed parties, lots of discussion of the #IaCaucus allegations of fraud and not voting #IaDem. #Mueller #iapolitics
