16.01/ There are some really promising signs. It's a good feeling that increasing the number of voters - without even knowing how they voted - is good for the Democrats. It's good for democracy and the "Democrat" party. Funny that
16.02/ A reminder that huge crowds - and 40% of the vote - is also what Hoover inspired in 1932.
16.03/ Florida is a true toss-up because it's Florida and it's designed to be a god-awful mess. But I have a good feeling about Texas (and Georgia). A gooooooooooooood feeling about Texas

In 1994, the republicans tried to bumb rush Californians and passed prop 187. This prop was abusive, racist and dangerous in many ways.

It was the beginning of the end, of the republicans stronghold, in the state of California...
#ElevenThree4RBG Image
I remember being a sophomore in high school and our English teacher was angry. Explained to us that prop 187 was so conveniently named after CA penal code 187 which defines murder. And this is exactly what they planned to do to us brown kids, figuratively speaking...
However, soon after that, many of us found ourselves being severely discriminated against.

This law gave pretty much the authority to schools, hospitals, and government agencies to ask us for documentation on our citizenship.

“If they’re brown, they must have papers”

#FBR lists are a perennially popular technique for gaining resistance followers, which also makes infiltrating them a perennially popular technique for folks who want to gain resistance followers under false pretenses. (The same is true of #MAGA trains, btw.)

We downloaded the most recent 200 tweets from each of 15402 accounts listed on #FBR/#FBRParty/#Resist followback lists since Aug 1st 2020, and looked for accounts that retweeted #MAGA accounts, foreign autocrats, or random spammers. Here are some of the more interesting ones. . . Image
First up: @ABirkshire, which transformed from #BlueWave2020 Democrat to enthusiastic Trump supporter in under two months, and is now being promoted on #MAGA trains. In that same time, it also went from knowing nothing about #QAnon to being a devotee/self-styled expert. ImageImageImageImage

(2.) On January 31st, Trump restricted travel from China, and top Democrat Officials IMMEDIATELY called him out for his completely unnecessary, xenophobic response. Remember, DIVERSITY is our strength.…
(3.) @SpeakerPelosi went the extra mile, bless her heart, and had media cameras following her through San Francisco's Chinatown district, and even encouraged public gatherings, once again putting Trump in his place.…

DeJoy is acting like a thug, picking and choosing which questions he wants to answer. His perjury and conflicts of interest demand further investigation. #DeJoyHearing
DeJoy says USPS can handle everything and doesn’t need any extra money but also says the Post Office is losing $10 billion a year and needs States to change how they do elections because the USPS can’t handle things as is and he’s not putting sorting machines back. #DeJoyHearing
Either DeJoy is lying repeatedly or he’s simply too incompetent to be Postmaster General. #FireDeJoyNow #DeJoyHearing

Steve Bannon's arrest around the building of an ugly concrete and steel structure along the Texas border destructive of culture, of life itself - is but the least of it. November is right around the corner and we are organized to #FlipTexasBlue…
There is a force gaining steam, a tide of fierceness; building fibre, taking on the forces of tyranny along the border, and bringing accountability the all-American way - by #Resisting.

#RiverWarriors taking stock of the battleground.
#BidenHarris2020 Image
It is a force of action against the militarization of the border, and the export of militarized tyranny to the heartland. Artists and activists giving voice to the people of South Texas. Pushing back against petty decisions of destruction.

President* Trump’s attacks on our U.S. Postal Service are deliberate decisions to hurt our veterans and to hurt our seniors who depend on mail for medications and checks. VOTE EARLY. @votevets #TrumpYouLose

Every journalist should ask President* Trump @svdate’s question:

“After three and a half years, do you regret all the lying you've done to the American people?"

Does he have any regrets AT ALL?

Rep @AOC: "Treating people w dignity and respect makes a decent man. When a decent man messes up, as we all are bound to do, he tries his best and… apologizes genuinely to repair and acknowledge the harm…”

“Our fight does not end on Election Day. It’s the days or weeks that follow — as the mail-in votes are counted — that are most important.” @FindAClearTruth

President* Trump has corrupted everything he has touched… November 3rd, America admits its greatest mistake and fires Donald Trump.

Fire #AmericasGreatestMistake October 20 if you vote by mail.

Opinion | Trump surveyed the smoking ruin of his reelection and decided: Be more Trumpy… ...ME: @MJGerson how about @SenateGOP meet Joe Biden halfway and give up the unqualified, partisan and incompetent religious zealots they confirmed to lifetime
judicial appointments? How about giving up
Gorusch's @SCOTUS seat that was stolen from @BarackObama? How about agreeing to roll back the ruinous @HouseGOP tax cut? What about rolling back draconian immigration rules and re implementing EPA regs that will save our children?
How about restoring public lands that @POTUS Trump opened up for gas and oil? Not a choice you'd make? You can't expect @TheDemocrats to be okay with the corrupt and illegal accomplishments of the past four years as the new baseline under a corrupt judicial system geared to

Nearly 100,000 people have died and trump does not care. He is golfing and having airplanes fly "Keep America Great" banners over beaches. And he is tweeting lies about how #coronavirus case numbers are going down all over the country.
He is spending time accusing news talk show pundits of murder, and Democrats of mail-in voting fraud (even though he votes this way) while saying Republicans need to control the vote or they would never be voted in.
The New York Times @nytimes did an amazing job with remembering those lost so far to #COVID19 . It is presented on their app in an interactive way and really hit home. Just think they listed only about 1% of all Americans known to have died so far from this horrible disease.

Fellow Democrats (and anyone else for that matter)- allowing politicians to waltz into office without opposition isn't good for anyone. Speaking for myself my political views are my own and align with Dems- who I believe are dedicated to advocating for *each and every* American.
Where there is no balance there is no Justice. Where there is no accountability there is dysfunction and chaos. NO public servant is above accountability to the voters that they serve. My State Rep threatens me, lies about me and refuses to answer questions about policy.
My State Rep accuses me of "begging for money" while she's funded by a handful of VERY wealthy individuals.
She received 29 donations in 2019 and her average donation was $543. She received *4* individual donations.

I received 316 donations of which 313 were individual donors.

I’m really done discussing Bernie as a candidate. He has no shot of winning the nomination, and our country faces much more important issues at the moment than his ego. He had years to make his case and he lost ground relative to 2016.

As PROGRESSIVES, can we please move on now?
It’s clear that progressive policy ideas are popular.

Bernie Sanders, the candidate, is not.

The longer we allow our goals to be exclusively associated with HIM, rather than with the broad, inclusive, intersectional movement that preceded his 2016 run, the more we risk.
I understand that some progressive voters feel personal loyalty to Bernie. I don’t. I was a progressive before he started voting, and I’m ~30 years younger than him.

I appreciate the work he’s done for the cause, but if he really cares about our movement, he will step aside.

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.
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.
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.

Any political endorsement from from me is not easy to get and must be earned. Those that know me well that in the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election my original endorsement was:


I am firm believer everyone has right to their own opinion, how they choose to
live their life is their business, not my place or role to judge other choices, and I am not always right needing seeking to understand. Regarding supporting Trump I just do NOT UNDERSTAND. I have some good friends that really respect and believe are so smart that are on the
Trump Bandwagon. Thru all my questions and conversations I have come to conclusion they do not support Trump as a President it is more about the message, things they believe need to change, and ideals of the conservative party. I may not agree, but at least I can at least

A little more @ Robert Hyde- on Dec 17 it was reported that CT Republican & Dem Leadership asked him to remove his name from the Congressional ballot for an offensive tweet @ Sen Kamala Harris-now Parnas gives us more.
He is NOT a good guy! #BlueWave2020…
2-"Robert Hyde, one of three Republicans running for a chance to challenge U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes, used sexual language to describe Harris’s decision to end her presidential bid earlier this month.
3-"“She went down, brought to her knees. Blew it. Must be a hard one to swallow ....” Hyde tweeted on Dec. 3. The tweet, which has since been removed, linked to an NPR story on Harris’s decision.

Seniors WHO officials blocked the DOS from issuing a statement condemning RU after Moscow seized Ukrainian ships in Nov 2018.

Trump boosted a tweet that alleges Amb Bill Taylor put fabricated info about about Firtash in a diplomatic cable.

Firtash happens to have a long-standing beef w/ Biden.

Catherine Croft & Christopher Anderson described the unusual intrusion into U.S. foreign policy by Trump-aligned consultants, including Giuliani and Robert Livingston, a lobbyist & former GOP congressman.

Vindman told House investigators that a WH meeting AND nearly $400 million in security and military aid was “contingent” on Ukrainian officials carrying out multiple investigations, including into Burisma, the Bidens, the 2016 election and Crowd Strike.
