1/87-In 2016 @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism "woke" me to the massive corruption in our government:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS (#Globalists)

VS

WE THE PEOPLE (Patriots & @POTUS)

#MAGA #QAnon #GreatAwakening #WalkAway
2/87-This is going to be a LONG thread, for those in a hurry... I recommend the "Agenda Explained" series by @RockingMrE:

Start w/the "Globalist Agenda" in under 11 minutes! 👍🤓

3/87-I'd like to start by saying I'm NOT an expert on the #NWO. I'm simply a Patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why... as I listened to @realDonaldTrump speak about Globalism, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.

Democrats are really bad at this game.
We run from one catastrophe to the next with our hair on fire, and our rhetoric becomes increasingly desperate in the process. We fail to understand regional politics and how our rhetoric is used against us in purple districts.
#AbolishICE
There are plenty of things about #ICE that need to be changed. But the only way to change that is by being in power. How can we not see that the idea to #AbolishICE can be used as a broad message of @TheDemocrats being anit-law enforcement and for #OpenBorders???
Just today, I was listening to the @MSignorile show, and he promoted #AbolishICE as a good slogan for Dems to run on. I would ask Mr Signorile to look at the political calculus for #RedState Dems who'll be forced to defend that rhetoric and oppose #Trump's #SCOTUS pick

#TheProblemWithPolitics is that the kind of people willing to run for office aren't the kind of people we need in office.* I saw this up close & personal, & it's even more ugly than you think. We need elected officials who mentor the next generation.

*With rare exceptions.
At the federal level, we keep sending professional fundraisers to office who are in it for ego or other selfish reasons. At the state & local level, people are consumed by grabbing & retaining power or territory. The larger purpose of serving is far too often lost.
Want to make money have less of a role in elections (assuming we don't overturn #CitizensUnited right away)? Local party orgs should establish a reasonable fundraising threshold candidates have to meet to be considered for endorsement, & then not consider money beyond that.

Our country desperately needs common-sense disclosure laws.

Exhibit A: The @NRA spent $30M to elect Trump—and it may have been Russian money.

We're LIVE with @SenWhitehouse and @davidcicilline discussing the #DISCLOSEAct and why we need it. WATCH: facebook.com/reverbpress/vi…
.@SenWhitehouse: Before #CitizensUnited, we had bipartisan climate negotiations in the Senate, but since the day it was decided in 2010, no Republican has gotten on a single bill for climate change. That's because of fossil fuel money, and it's why we need the #DISCLOSEAct.
.@SenWhitehouse: "There were two false premises to #CitizensUnited: the spending was going to be transparent, and it was going to be independent. Now you have candidate-specific groups who clearly aren't independent spending billions in dark money. SCOTUS has turned a blind eye."

1/69 Ranty thread. (Sorry.)
The last two days’ Supreme Court decisions put the final nail in the coffin of the idea that “Hillary would have been just as bad as Trump.”
2/ All of you geniuses who sneered at “voting for the lesser of two evils” have cemented in place a Supreme Court that will rule your lives for 50 years.
3/ Merrick Garland would have ruled against obviously racist gerrymandering in Texas. RBG would have written the majority opinion. Instead Samuel Alito writes the opinion.

***New Thread*** people are not going to like this much but here goes. The emergence of a figure like @realDonaldTrump didn’t happen by accident. He is the product of the vulnerability of the US political system. He is the by product of a culture that enables men to bypass .....
... convention and ethics. Only in America would you “elect” a thrice married, racist, traitorous, beholdened “man.” This didn’t just happen. This is a result of the “vast right wing conspiracy,” that @HillaryClinton was speaking about in the late 1990s. This is a result ......
... of the reversal of the #truthdoctrine and #citizensunited ; this is a result of sheer laziness and complacency with removing the paper ballots and putting faith in computer tabulated results for election results. President Trump is the end product of a generation of .......

Hey folks, I’m about to go on a tweet storm of my own…about dark money in politics. Follow if interested (or watch live here: americanprogress.org/events/2018/05…) 👇🏽
Most of us would agree SCOTUS #CitizensUnited decision was damaging to our representative democracy and to the American people’s faith in our government 1/13
We decried the ruling. Many raised money off it it. But we didn’t actually….do anything about it. We had a chance, but everyone said “game over” and moved on. 2/13

Dominionist Christianity in the U.S. in 2018 - 18} "There are two main expressions of Dominionism, each influential far beyond their foundational thinkers. Briefly, Christian Reconstructionism, founded by the late theologian R.J. Rushdoony (1916-2001) advances the idea that
Christians must not only dominate society, but institute and enforce Old Testament biblical law. Unlike the doctrines developed within specific denominations, Christian Reconstructionism has been a movement of ideas that transcends denominations and has influenced far more people

Steve Bannon and the Mercers "invested millions" into a company that "specialized in military intelligence and psychological warfare." Bannon became a Vice President.
"In June 2016, the Trump campaign was flailing... the Mercers... offered Trump a huge cash injection, but they insisted he hire Steve Bannon and their company #CambridgeAnalytica"
.@Channel4News reveals how Trump, Bannon and the Mercers conspired to abuse the post-#CitizensUnited "dark money" electoral system: "Positive messages went through the candidate's official campaign, but the nasty stuff was pushed through outside organizations"

🔥WHOA🔥

A longtime #NRA attorney reportedly expressed “concerns” about the NRA’s ties w/#Russia🇷🇺and possible involvement in ILLEGALLY funneling Russian money into the 2016 election to help Donald Trump‼️🤬1/

h/t @traciemac_Bmore

mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-…
Former NRA board member Cleta Mitchell (also did legal work for them) is one of MANY people whom House Intel Democrats want to interview. Democratic Senate Intel investigators also are interested in what she may know about relationships btwn the NRA and wealthy Russians.🧐 2/
Get this. In addition to being a gun lover (of course🙄), Mitchell is an *election law specialist* and veteran conservative operative.🤨

Meaning: she should know that it’s ILLEGAL for #Russians🇷🇺to donate ANY money that is spent on political campaigns‼️ 3/

🔥KUSH🔥

THREAD: #Qatar claims to have EVIDENCE of “illicit influence” by the UAE on Jared Kushner & other Trump associates, including details of SECRET MEETINGS, but decided not to give info to Mueller for fear of retaliation from Trump‼️ 1/

nbcnews.com/politics/natio…
Mueller already was probing attempts by the UAE to " buy political influence" by supporting Trump’s campaign.🤔

Then *after* #Qatar refused to bail out Kush’s 666 Fifth Ave properly, Trump sided w/the UAE & #SaudiArabia AGAINST Qatar.🤨 2/

#Corruption

George Nader — a Lebanese-American pal of Erik Prince, who’s been pushing pro-UAE interests — and #Republican DONOR Elliott Broidy, participated in the meetings.🤔

Nader FLIPPED and is cooperating w/Mueller‼️😎 3/

I'm back on the #soapbox. And I'm going to be on it a long time talking up #CitizensUnited until it sinks into the brain of everyone here. If we want a HOPE of restoring the #integrity of our #elections it MUST be overturned. #DarkMoney is overriding our voices in the ballot box.
#CitizensUnited was and is the nail in the coffin to any pretense of #democracy. How do you think this #IllegitimateRegime was installed? #DarkMoney is the major culprit. Then there was the #Russian interference, #Hacking, #VoterSuppression and #Gerrymandering.
A #PerfectStorm
We lost our voices this last #election that was a #coup. #WI alone suppressed 300K votes & that's just the tip of that iceberg. Throw in the #CitizensUnited #DarkMoney of #Adelson #Kochanistan #Mercerville et al #Russians #hacking #Gerrymandering & there you go. #Democracy dies.

Look. This seems like hyperbole.

But it's not: The DoJ is getting more and more politicized, especially as the Mueller investigation circles the most inner circles of the Trump machine.

What isn't affecting you personally is still affecting millions of people.
And the laws that are being rewritten for the DoJ will be rewritten for you too at some point.

Bannon played WOW, no wonder... I'm sure he got the #PoolsClosed on #habbohotel back in 06'. #CyberWarfare wired.com/2016/09/trumps…
#4Chan grew in notoriety after members plotted 'RAIDS' of a virtual internet chat game called #habbohotel where trolling became way of life.
Nazi symbology in a kid's game inevitably lead the developers to 'close the pool' in an effort to stop online trolls from creating a culture of hate online. I'd be interested to know if Bannon was apart of these raids. @FBIWFO @CIA @Cyber @dhsscitech
