@Cking613 @MiaFarrow @ewarren @maddow The only relevant thing you said is this ^^ "is no way for a feminist to behave". The idea that Elizabeth Warren should subjugate her beliefs, experience, and vision to Bernie's, that she should defer to him, is misogynist to its core.
@Cking613 @MiaFarrow @ewarren @maddow Berners and Bernie are willfully and egotistically blind to the fact that Warren carries the progressive standard with none of the Bernie baggage. If predicts had supported Warren we could have had our vision with a president who could actually accomplish something.
@Cking613 @MiaFarrow @ewarren @maddow Instead, Bernie is determined to be president himself no matter how badly he damages the progressive cause on the way. That is the epitome of personal over professional.

Y’all wanna refuse to accept a fascist America? Here’s a thread from our new Statement of Conscience. #TrumpPenceOutNow #OutNow
Silent No More, We Say:
The hour is late. For over three years, the Trump/Pence regime has brought an unrelenting barrage of insult, injury, and atrocity, with catastrophic consequences for all humanity. #TrumpPenceOutNow
There are times in history when a people must reach deep into their collective conscience and act with unprecedented moral courage to stop the crimes of their government.

1/ Destroy Bernie Sanders to save the world - a thread. Obviously, this is going to really piss some of you off, so let me start with the disclaimer: I'm the drum major leading the #VoteBlueNoMatterWho parade.
2/ I will vote for, support, and volunteer for ANYONE who wins the Democratic nomination. ANYONE. That's because for every issue that you or I care about, whether it's climate, guns, healthcare, corruption, war, or ANYTHING, defeating Trump is step 1 in making any progress.
3/ Trump loses & maybe we save the world. Drag it back from the precipice. Trump wins? We're fucked. Progressives, moderates, socialists, conservatives ... fucked.

2020 brings critical Presidential and Senate elections.
It's also our last chance to build progressive power in state legislatures ahead of 2021 #redistricting.

We've identified 10 states with the biggest 2020 opps for our model of progressive change.

sisterdistrict.com/states
We're channeling our energy in 2020 toward progressive candidates in these 10 states.

Each of these fits one of our strategic buckets: Blue Flips, Blue Holds, Blue Inroads.

We've focused on states where the state legislature controls redistricting.

sisterdistrict.com/states
In 2020, we're also focusing on states with important U.S. Senate or congressional races, and swing states with crucial Electoral College votes.

Because investing locally in blue voter outreach also helps the top of the ticket.

How do various folks use the word "disgusting" on Twitter? We looked at a month or so (2019-12-01 - 2020-01-07) of recent tweets containing "disgusting" to find out; here are some observations. #SaturdayMotivation

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote We classified the accounts with recent "disgusting" tweets into #resistance/#BlueWave, #MAGA, and "other" categories based on the hashtags used in their profiles. We excluded accounts with no profile hashtags. 29.5% appear to be political; slightly more are left-wing than right.
@ZellaQuixote Next, we ran sentiment analysis on the tweets containing "disgusting". Unsurprisingly, the scores average highly negative (around -0.5), but the political accounts' "disgusting" tweets consistently score more negative than those from non-political accounts.

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the state
A whole bunch of folks just weren't doing so great;
With no health insurance, and school weeks 4 days
The legislature was unworthy of praise. #moleg
Lawmakers were sleeping all snug in their beds
While visions of #DarkMoney danced in their heads.
The will of the people they chose to ignore;
Democracy seemed just too much of a chore.
To make voting easy, they simply refused
For a map with #fairdistricts, they just had no use.
The roads they were crumbling, the bridges were too;
Where cement was needed, the fix was but glue.
Women and doctors were growing irate;
Their bodies and freedoms now seized by the state.
Our unions and workers faced ruthless attack
Wishing for someone who just had their back.

I am so tired of the far right Corporate "Evangelicals" pretending they're following the bible.
How about following Jesus' teachings:
The Golden Rule
The Beatitudes
Jesus healed the sick, welcomed strangers, & fed the poor.
#WWJD?
He wouldn't elect GOP who cage children.
The media seems fascinated by the fact that @JoeBiden carries a rosary in his pocket, that @SpeakerPelosi is a practicing Catholic as well who honestly prays for our country, & @PeteButtigieg talking openly about his faith.
The Dems are actually living the teachings of Jesus.
@JoeBiden @SpeakerPelosi @PeteButtigieg Atheists also live by the Golden rule. They do good for good's sake.
The Christian Left believes that it's more important to LIVE their faith, rather than simply paying lip service to it.
The Dems don't use the bible as a prop to get elected; the Dems simply do the right thing.

THREAD: the media is going crazy and telling you that there was a big #BlueWave in Louisiana and Kentucky. That couldn’t be further from the truth. All it takes is studying a little history..1...
....2....Let’s start with KY. History has shown that Kentucky is not a fan of GOP governors. There have only been four since statehood and 3 since World War II. Bevin is the most recent. None were re-elected to a second term. KY is red because Dems voted for Trump there.
...3....@POTUS won KY by 30 points. Moderate Dems there voted for him. Bevin was also extremely unpopular. The Trump Effect has clearly been seen in KY when Daniel Cameron was elected attorney general, becoming the first GOP AG in 70 years.....

We decided to pair the subjective assessment with an attempt at an objective assessment. We began by downloading tweets containing various phrases likely to be associated with violence against one’s fellow citizens.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote After removing some off-topic search terms, we wound up with 483647 tweets containing “my guns”, “our guns”, “take guns”, “civil war”, or “guillotine(s)” from 285593 accounts between 9/15 and 10/24. How are the accounts posting them distributed in terms of political stance?
@ZellaQuixote We classified the 200 most frequently seen hashtags in the profiles of the accounts tweeting possible violent rhetoric into three categories: #maga (red), #resist/#bluewave (blue), and “other” (green.) Overall, they lean strongly right - 52.3% #maga vs 29.9% #resist/#bluewave.

We’ve accumulated a decent-sized library of tweet datasets over the last three years, and decided to use them to take a first stab at training a classifier to identify different categories of Twitter activity.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote For the first round of this experiment, we chose three categories into which to classify accounts and manually selected ~200 of our existing datasets belonging to said categories as training/test data.

The 3 categories:
- #MAGA
- #Resist/#BlueWave
- spambots
@ZellaQuixote Next, we selected 24 features with which to score the tweet datasets. Examples of metrics used for scoring:

- repetition of content
- how many times retweeted
- hashtag usage
- sites linked
- trains/lists/followback tweets
- percentage of non-original tweets
- apps used

Sometimes one doesn't have to look very far to find a suspicious Twitter account, because the suspicious account in question (specifically, @lilmurrayne) conveniently joins the ranks of one's own followers.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@lilmurrayne @ZellaQuixote Based on its most recent followers, many of which have a blue wave emoji or #resist or the like in their profiles, one might think that @lilmurrayne is a liberal Twitter account. If we scroll back 1380 followers, however, the accounts are suddenly all in Japanese.
@lilmurrayne @ZellaQuixote The situation gets even more complicated the further back we go. @lilmurrayne's first few hundred followers are Arabic-language accounts, followed by several thousand in English, then alternating English and Arabic sets, then Japanese, then most recently #BlueWave accounts.

The only thing keeping us from a full blown #TrumpRecession is your consumption. The consumer is strong while all else fails. If you limit your spending until #Election2020 you're helping to get #Trump out of office. RETWEET

#Resistance #DeutscheBankLoans #ResistersUnite #resist
Tariffs have increased prices on large appliances and other big purchases. It's in your best (#resister) interest to hold off on any big purchase until after the election. You'll ensure Trump can't boast about the economy, and you'll save money after #Dems are back in power.
You may think interest rates are low, so it's a good time to spend, however as the #TrumpRecession gathers steam the fed will need to lower rates. New #Dem prez will reduce tariffs. That will increase your buying power in 2021 and help @thedemocrats economy flourish.

-nothing- to do with DNC @wikileaks, the emails came frm "someone" inside the DNC or Clinton campaign.

@Kris_Sacrebleu We should expect a ‘rhyming’ of our mid-19th century era surrounding our Civil War.
The #GOP (POTrump-#Republicans) shall end, leaving a blessed ‘conservative power drought’ lasting about as long as the Lincoln-to-Arthur 24-yr. GOP dominant era; we’ve no time for conservatism.
👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼There will be far too much to prosecute, legislate for, and plan if we are to last another century.
Do NOT expect assassinations. Do expect continued domestic terror and prodding from, . . . wait for it . . . —RUSSIA.
The thing yoking America today, 👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼 as much as slavery once did, is the scourge of #PartyPolitics which bred corporate control via sponsorship; #Democrats thankfully do acknowledge this, so look for the Dems to do the one thing they do best: self-dismantle their own power through #ElectionReform, 👇🏼

1/ Here’s a 🧵 of all the endorsements I’ve found for @PeteButtigieg, organized chronologically. If I accidentally omit anyone, I’ll add them at the end. I’ll also add new endorsements as they’re announced.
Thank you, endorsers!
HURRAY FOR #TeamPete!
#Pete2020
#PeteEndorsements
2/ I believe @SteveGrossmanMA became the first to endorse #Pete2020, on 4/11. He is a former DNC Chair, former Massachusetts State Treasurer, and current CEO of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a non-profit that trains inner-city entrepreneurs.

3/ Grossman called Pete “a Midwestern, down-to-earth, smart, savvy, in-touch candidate” who can flip industrial states. “My concern is the future of the US... I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”

The ⁦@GOP⁩ says elections have consequences, then start civil wars when they lose. Republicans in Oregon have run away from work and taken protection from domestic terrorists. ⁦⁦@BrianBoquistGOP⁩ threatened cops lawfully sent to retrieve him washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Meanwhile, popular vote loser Trump is ruling by decree. A #BlueWave in November has seen its legislation blocked by @senatemajldr. @GOP losers in state legislatures gutted gubernatorial power on their way out...

And @JoeBiden and @SenSchumer still mewl about “working together.”
The elected Oregon Democratic supermajority is trying to pass CLIMATE CHANGE legislation. That’s what the @GOP is running away from. Threatening police about. (Wonder how many of the craven cowards have #BlueLivesMatter bumper stickers?)

Liar.

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
#LiarInChief
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"
#ClimateChangeIsReal #ThursdayThoughts
"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

IF DEM LEADERS DO NOT #IMPEACH TRUMP,

THEY SHOULD BE PRIMARIED.

And as someone who has lived in #NY10 for most of the past 35 years, I will run for Congress on the principle that we need to overhaul the Democratic Party to fight for TRUE justice.

#Mueller #Barr #Impeachment
As a lifelong Dem who has spent two decades in the political trenches, I REFUSE to have a Tea Party Republican like #JustinAmash be more princpled in defense of the rule of law than the Democratic leadership. What was the #BlueWave for if not accountability?

#ImpeachNOW #Mueller
#IMPEACHMENT is the very LEAST America is owed after a hostile power cyber-attacked us and tilted our election to a Republican autocrat.

If you're a patriot, you defend America against threats to our democracy. Otherwise, step aside and let real patriots do the job.

Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.
