I'm astounded that more don't realize Trump is merely symptomatic of what the GOP has become. He's a figurehead, important to understand!

Image 1: GOP path to extremism
Image 2: Koch influence
Image 3: Koch-connected Council for National Policy, the "genuine leaders" of the GOP
They're behind the extremist judges like Kavanaugh. Have you heard of The Federalist Society? the Judicial Crisis Network? Judicial Watch? Those are Koch and #CNP organizations.
The Mercers - with major ties to #CNP - backed Cruz for President, then Trump. They also have stakes in Cambridge Analytica and apparently Breitbart per chart. Rebekah Mercer connected Bannon with Trump.

Some who claim to be Democrats have stated pretty definitively that @AOC is backed, favored, influenced, or funded by Russia. Well, that was worrisome, so I just went and took a look for myself.

I Googled "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Russia," and the results were disturbing.
Three top results confirmed the rumors.

The only problem with that is, ALL THREE are conservatively-biased, at least two propagate both misinformation and disinformation, and one was used by the 🇷🇺Russians as a weapon in the cyber attack on the United States.
Fox News is an 👀entertainment channel. More than half of its content is false/misleading. Its bias is far right.

The article confirming the rumor that Putin favors @AOC is an 👀opinion piece: foxbusiness.com/politics/alexa…

"Steve King. Ted Cruz. Marsha Blackburn. They're just 3 of a number of candidates with open white supremacist, nativist, anti-LGBTQ+ or antigovernment ties who won seats in the U.S. House and Senate during the 2018 midterms." #YearInHate bit.ly/2TVE2PC

"Gaetz invited Chuck Johnson, a white nationalist “Trump Troll,” to Trump’s State of the Union address in January 2018. Johnson is a Holocaust denier who developed WeSearchr, a payment platform for racist “alt-right” crowdfunding."

"Former Blackwater Boss Hacked Election For Teflon Don" and attorney @SethAbramson's diligent observations resulted in post "a few more dots" of the following together, per @LibAmericaOrg's Darrell Lucas:
Erik Prince (of Blackwater fame), in an interview with Breitbart, "revealed that he had 'insider knowledge' of why Comey dropped his bombshell" regarding Hillary Clinton's email when he did.
Prince claimed that there was evidence of criminal activity among Clinton's emails, and "that the NYPD turned their findings over to the FBI and gave Comey an ultimatum–reopen the investigation, or we will hold a press conference of our own to announce a pile of arrests."

This administration DOES NOT CARE about human rights. For Dominionists like Pence, it's part of their ideology not to be concerned about "global warming, over-population and large-scale species loss [as they] are 'unfounded or undue concerns.'"

When you see mention of the House Freedom Caucus and its hardcore conservatives like Meadows, remember their obstructionism:

"U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows helped engineer a federal government shutdown in 2013 in hopes of stopping the Affordable Care Act.."
citizen-times.com/story/news/loc…
Meadows, a Transylvania County Republican who represents most of Western North Carolina, has played an important role in bringing about the current partial shutdown over a border wall with Mexico." (via @asheville)

So. Much. "Freedom." 😠

The HFC's founding members are Rep. Scott Garrett, Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. John Fleming, Rep. Matt Salmon, Rep. Justin Amash, Rep. Raúl Labrador, Rep. Mick Mulvaney, Rep. Ron DeSantis and Rep. Mark Meadows.

Here's what the #CNP has planned for education in the United States. With the Heritage Foundation's support, of course.

Compare this to what DeVos has done as Secretary of Education: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betsy_DeV…

1. My heart breaks for our country. What's worse is I knew this was coming for my entire life. How? I was forced to become one of them for 3 yrs.
I was a "Soldier of God" to take down the civil rights of the 50s & liberal rights of the 60s. -- Ask me anything about that plan.
2. I'll start off:
Q. What are the basic teachings in a far-right fundamentalist school (cult)?
A. Rich white healthy straight men are blessed by God to lead this nation. Everyone else must serve God by serving these leaders. Laws are created to support the leaders & empires.
3. Q. What is the basic fight? Why do they not help those who are suffering?
A. To them suffering on Earth is only temporary. If they hurt others to fulfill the plan, then it's God's will. The only way a person can stop hurting is to turn to God to go to heaven & suffer no more.

@neeratanden Neera please look at the attached graphic. None of this happening is a coincidence. Trump was part of a long-term plan of the GOP to seize power. People like me have been trying to get anyone to listen to us. People don't understand the dangers we truly face. 1/
@neeratanden This is the group behind this coup. Almost everyone in this regime is a member. Their goal is christofascist theocracy by 2020. Why do you think there's been a push to rewrite the Constitution? 2/
@neeratanden Please look at these documents from #CNP for Betsy DeVos for the department of education. They are Dominionists not Christians. There's a huge difference. 3/

Why oh why would Leonard Leo, who runs the Federalist Society, want to hide a million dollar donation to Trump's inauguration?

Probably because the #CNP was still pretending they weren't all in on a coup back then. Oops.
Donors Capital Fund, DonorsTrust get money from the Koch Brothers and the DeVos (Prince) family. Money moves from there to the Federalist Society.

Koch Brothers (separately) and the Sarah Scaife Foundation are also big donors to the Federalist Society.
conservativetransparency.org/recipient/fede…
Right-wing media has gone full Trump because they know Robert Mueller's investigation is FOLLOWING THEIR MONEY TOO.

There is no difference between the Trump line & the RW media line because the big players, the Koch Brothers included, have been in on this coup FROM. THE. START.

1/ Rebekah Mercer is on the board of The Heritage Foundation. Top donors:

Sarah Scaife Foundation/Allegheny Foundation (same family)

Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation / DeVos Urban Leadership Initiative (so, Erik Prince)

Howard Charitable Foundation
conservativetransparency.org/recipient/the-…
2/ Howard Charitable Foundation is run by Alan Howard, who also heads Brevan Howard Asset Management.

Brevan Howard has performed poorly lately. Maybe some friends in China can help them out? Erik Prince's company is owned by the Chinese gov't after all.

3/ January 2015:

Alan Howard spent $33 million on a penthouse at Trump International Hotel & Tower on Central Park West.

He paid nearly $12 million more than the pad's former owners forked out at the height of the real estate bubble in 2007.

"We have to replace Judge Scalia with justices of the Supreme Court like him. If Hillary Clinton gets in, she is now so far left, that we're never gonna have a country again. We're gonna end up being Venezuela. We're gonna end up being Venezuela." -DJT on July 27, 2016

2/ We're trying to piece the GOP primary & campaign together. As I've said, there's intentional disinfo given to MSM.

January 8, 2016:

The Koch brothers' "concern over the policies of Donald J. Trump and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was especially clear."
nytimes.com/politics/first…
3/ So, Trump being the anti-establishment candidate, this either doesn't hurt him or helps him, right? The "establishment" wins by pumping money to Cruz and shoving out Trump, but they chose not to.

Then the stakes were raised in mid-February 2016 when Justice Scalia died.

Why would the founder and publisher of The Federalist want to nothingburger Mercer-owned Cambridge Analytica? Perhaps because Mercer and/or his #CNP friends fund The Federalist? Worth looking into, imo.

1. The #KochBrothers & the #CNP plan to privatize education, just like Chile. This analysis of the Chilean education system shows that "privatization creates or deepens inequalities between socio-eco-nomic groups and creates a strongly segregated society." globalinitiative-escr.org/wp-content/upl…
2. During the 1980s, under Pinochet, Chile saw:
* The introduction of a voucher system whereby schools are funded by the State on the basis of the number of students attending daily;
* The deregulation of school curriculum.
globalinitiative-escr.org/wp-content/upl…
3. Chile privatized its school system "in the name of efficiency and school ‘choice’. The theory was that commercializing the relationship between schools and families would thereby incentivize increased quality." Sound familiar? globalinitiative-escr.org/wp-content/upl…

1. Thread. Screenshots at end.
Here are some of the education goals of the Council for National Policy ("CNP") to which KA, Bannon, Pence, the Mercers, Wayne LaPierre, & DeVos's mom and father-in-law belong:

* "Restore Ten Commandments posters for all k-12 public schools,"
2. #CNP education goals continued:

* "Eliminate federal funding of state-operated schooling..."

* "Have DOE clearly state its intention to return complete sovereignty of k-12 education, development, and operation, to the states"
3. #CNP education goals continued:
* "Mobilize CNP Action and CNP individual members to fully support the dismantling of DOE..."
* "Implement select Bible classes..."
