A brief history of the United States:

a few hundred years ago some assholes landed on a boat and started killing the people who already lived here.

1/
soon... some of those assholes started bringing in people that were captured and held as slaves, so they wouldn't have to work so hard.

2/
people kept coming into this new land because they were being persecuted for various reasons in their homeland... they were from many places and many religions... they came here so they could live in peace.

Ok here is the deal. While news pundits r touting fundraising $$ raised & gauging the viability of a dem candidates. It's important to look at the big picture. #Beto2020 had me at the firdt Townhall I heard him talk abt his vision, NFL speech won my heart but THIS won my trust.
Beto since early in his tenure at Congress decided he came to Congress to serve the people he represented. He refused to "play the Washington game". It was one of the many reasons Texans love him so much. We heard him and KNOW HIM. He is there "FOR THE PEOPLE"
#BetoORourke shows up everywhere. Ppl might believe he can't pull a crowd or his ability to fundraise has faltered. Well he is not a candidate chasing the dollar, he is going to where the people are all over the country. No PAC, NO CORPORATE or special interests. It's ALLPeople

I've been telling folks that there's been a tectonic shift here in Texas, politically, in the last few years... and #Beto is the reason... but I haven't really been able to put it into words... but yesterday it became more clear. let me explain.

...1/
I live in Lubbock, TX. It's one of the reddest places on the planet, politically speaking. In 2016, trump won Lubbock County with a 38 point spread. In 2018, Cruz won Lubbock County with a 29 point spread, which was surprising because he won with a 42 point spread in 2012.

2/
So, you can see a definite trend there. But trends are not what I'm talking about here... I'm talking about the *atmosphere* of our little city.

A few months ago, my wife and I got our new #Beto tshirts... and since then we wear them often... say once a week.

1/ Gun violence and visual censorship: a running thread.
2/ Remember that rare/unusual shot from Va Beach? Or this frame from Christchurch in New Zealand? Once again this weekend, horrific acts of #gunviolence on American soil. But between police and media, the scenes are completely sanitized. While carnage reigns, we see no blood.

1) Recap of last night's democratic debate:

The Chairman of the Democratic National Committee funneled four pots of coffee before taking the stage and nearly has a heart attack while screaming about the republicans.
2)The quote of the night is already, "Climate change threatens our universe."
Never change, Tom Perez... Never change.

The moderators are introduced.
We have three hours of tonight's debate featuring ten candidates talking for seven minutes each divided into segments of four
3) I'm already confused.

ONE?! Only one of these jobbers has dropped since the last debate? How is that possible? I'm looking directly at you, Beto.
The national anthem is sung and shockingly, all the candidates remained standing and no one took a knee.

1/ @TheRickWilson is absolutely right that Rs have been successful winning elections.

But like the guy born on 3rd base thinking he hit a homer he left out some pertinent details.
2/ Since Nixon Rs has embraced and committed to Pat Buchanan's vision of using wedge issues for electoral gain,

"Such gambits, he added, could "cut the Democratic Party and country in half; my view is that we would have far the larger half."

newyorker.com/magazine/2008/…
3/ There is no wound in our national psyche that Rs won't exploit for gain - reproductive rights, God, Guns, Gays, etc.

As I first wrote several weeks ago would happen, the Democratic debates have restructured the polling, putting, as I predicted, @KamalaHarris and @ewarren within striking distance of @JoeBiden.

Biden 22%
Harris 17%
Warren 15%
Sanders 14%
Buttigieg 4%

cnn.com/2019/07/01/pol…
Months of assertions that #Biden was "inevitable" have been eviscerated. Unable to stand up to #Harris at the debates, Biden appeared tired, confused and unprepared, despite having been kept away from major events for weeks by his handlers. Harris has been campaigning daily.
#Warren won the first debate handily, with only @JulianCastro and @CoryBooker offering any other strong moments in the two hour debate.
The new rankings put #Harris and Warren in the lead for most electable and many are already talking about Harris/Warren as the 2020 ticket.

#DemDebate wrap-up:

Maintained top tier status: #ElizabethWarren

Boosted his candidacy: #JulianCastro

Shaky: #BetoORourke
Though credit to #Beto for bringing up Russia's 2016 cyberattack.
And yes to those saying that #CoryBooker did well too.

But I think @ewarren did everything she needed to do and more to cement her position as one of the frontrunners.

#Warren, #Harris and #Castro had previously called for #impeachment weeks ago.

More Democrats Are Calling For Impeachment After #Mueller Said He Could Not Clear Trump buzzfeednews.com/article/paulmc…
A week ago both #Beto and #Buttigieg had joined the impeachment calls.Today #Booker, #Gillibrand and others added their voices for impeachment and #Sanders said he would support whatever Pelosi chooses to do, but said it seems time to examine the issue.
The outlier among the frontrunners is #Biden, who took a wait-and-see attitude. In his
statement, #Mueller declaratively punted the ball to Congress.

President Trump calling it as he sees it.
And the media said this man has what it takes. No wonder he appeared on Vanity Fair. #Beto
Acts of a privileged white man. Women could not do this while on the campaign trail.

So last month the MSM was treating #BernieSanders like the nominee.
Now they're treating #Biden like he's the nominee.

THE FIRST VOTE IS NEXT YEAR.

It's two months till debates. But if other candidates are shut out of coverage, how many will be allowed on the stage?
Where were
#KamalaHarris, #ElizabethWarren, #AmyKlobuchar, #KirstenGillibrand, #JulianCastro,
#CoryBooker,
#Beto
and
#Buttigieg--the remaining top ten candidates--campaigning Monday? Because all we heard about was #Biden in #Pittsburgh.
In an interview on @AC360, Sanders was asked about Biden only. Sanders said he was running against 19 other candidates.

He's right. The MSM is wrong.

"We’re thinking about doing, on the 4th of July or thereabouts, a parade. A "Salute to America" parade. It will be a -- really, a gathering, as opposed to a parade, I’d guess you’d have to say. Perhaps at the Lincoln Memorial. We’re looking at sites." DO IT!!!!!
" We had, by the way, a massive crowd. And my competitor had very few people, but the press didn’t report it that way. The press reported it like two speeches. We had a competitor that decided to challenge me with the crowds. And he failed very badly" #Beto 😂
"...they're telling me about the committee came out with a deal. And, you know, they went over it very briefly."

1) This is the scam. You announce a run 4office & establish an #ExploratoryCommittee. Next, post election, all funds which were not used during your campaign are transferred back into your personal holdings, often filtered further through #Foundations 1st.
#MoneyLaundering......
2) #Beto pocketed $Millions after his run against #TedCruz. They all do it. It's planned from the start that not all money's will be allocated for campaign usage! Why do you think all of these, haven't got a snowballs chance, nobody's are saying they are running?......
3) The list continues to grow as each new candidate (?) steps forward. This is a group of greed driven morally corrupt individuals that seek to bilk $$$ from weak minded constituents, & in the case of 2020, #TheNation.

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.

Of course Sirota is worried about #beto who raised
$69 million dollars for a senate race with no PACs.
And Beto who still has $10 million on hand.
Cuts into that Bern dollar machine.
Beto v Bernie is all Sirota is concerned about. And he doesn’t like these numbers.
Bern’s PAC % is 1.58
Beto’s PAC % is .11

Naturally Sirota is worried about the erosion of his meal ticket.

N*ziYorkTimes at it again. Undercutting the rise of Southern Democrats a fierce ambitious, exuberant and emboldened group of Democrats on fire from the so red state close races of Stacey Andrew. And Beto. Red state Democrats are blazing rn in Mississippi and ready for 2020.
Who cares what white Republicans think in Texas.

Or anywhere.

Blue tsunami just got started with the House.

It’s just a matter of time. #Beto2020

You know Sputhern Democrats are surging and growing when the N*ziYorkTimes insults them and tries to gaslight them into old pain.

There’s a new day.
