1. Dear #WeThePeople of the LEFT

U have correctly identified the problem - that a 1% ELITE controls our government

But your solution of SOCIALISM is misguided

Let’s work TOGETHER to destroy this ELITE class

ONE ISSUE POLITICS - Destroy the Elite

2A. From @noamchomskyT
Requiem for the American Dream

“If u look at wealth distribution, the (income) inequality mostly comes from super-wealth -.. the top 1/10th of a %... If u check u find that over the course of these years the govt policy has been modified ...
2B. “.. AGAINST THE WILL OF THE POPULATION to provide enormous benefits to the very rich... Real incomes have stagnated for over 30 years. The MIDDLE CLASS in that sense.. is under severe attack. A significant part of the AMERICAN DREAM is class mobility... It’s all collapsed.”

1/ We're nonpartisan, and we don’t usually weigh in on polarizing matters like #impeachment bc there are hundreds of orgs doing so already. It's simply not our role. However, this is a historic moment. It is serious, and it's linked to our work to fix our corrupt political system
2/ No matter what we say about the #impeachmenttrial, we’re going to upset ppl one side or the other bc today, ppl on the right and the left live in two completely different realities. We get our news from different channels, and each side gets a different set of “facts”.
3/ As a result, many people think Dems used the #impeachment trial as a bogus ploy to gain political advantage. Many others think #Republicans abandoned their sworn oath to protect the #Constitution and voted to protect their party at the expense of the people and the rule of law

Greetings everyone,

The system we're participating in is not the original constitutional system that is found in Article 4, Section 4 of The U.S. Constitution.

According to The Texas Supreme Court & The U.S. Supreme Court. The current system (De Facto) is UNLAWFUL &....

@thedevman1 @TheDemocrats @SenSchumer Read carefully,

"without witnesses or documents" right?

So @SenSchumer agrees w/#TrumpDefenseTeam: "there is no evidence, no crime" & @RepAdamSchiff failed to produce evidence in #Senate! #Trump2020 #MAGA #KAG.

@StateBarCA investigate @RepAdamSchiff.
@thedevman1 @TheDemocrats @SenSchumer @RepAdamSchiff @StateBarCA Main reason it's a "#ShamTrial" is @RepAdamSchiff failing to us Judiciary and taking the risk of hearsay #Whistleblower" complaint alleging a conversation that doesn't match the transcript being thrown out of court as irrelevant. A denial of #DueProcess for all of #America!
@thedevman1 @TheDemocrats @SenSchumer @RepAdamSchiff @StateBarCA So you folks screaming #ShamTrial, you do what every client of every lawyer does, blame everything but the Prosecutor for failing to establish and procure evidence to overcome the right of every single accused to be presumed innocent until proven guilty by the law.

To say that they believe that @realDonaldTrump did ask for foreign interference in our domestic elections and not need to hear more and yet refuse to vote for removal because they like his policies is mind boggling. They argued on the floor of the #Senate that the #Democrat (1/4)
case had come forward because the #Democrats didn’t like the President’s policies yet that now becomes the reason not to call for witnesses. Trying to undermine a domestic election with the help of a foreign government is prohibited by the #Constitution. That is exactly (2/4)
what the #President did and they know it. What has happened to the #RuleOfLaw when even lawyers lie? What has happened to standards? What lessons are our children learning? What is happening to our country and its position in the world? (3/4)

Questions to all @SenateGOP :
• Is your allegiance to #Constitution and the #OathOfOffice you swore?
• Do you value the integrity of the #Senate and the future of #America as a free republic?
• Or have you forsaken all in the name of power, money, and partisan politics?
@SenateGOP .@SenateGOP :
You've read history.
You know #America was founded by those who sought and fought for #Freedom from monarchical rule.
The #Framers gave us the #Constitution to guide and protect us from any who would attempt to re-assert any such rule.
@SenateGOP . @SenateGOP
That is why our #Constitution begins with the words #WeThePeople, not supreme leader or king or queen.
#America is government
• of the people
• by the people
• for the people
You were entrusted with the good of the people who elected you.

A thread about India's Constitution shared by a friend.

1) Images:

a) Lord Rama was depicted over the Fundamental Rights page.
b) Lord Nataraja (Dancing Shiva) was over Part XII
c) Lord Mahavira was over States and First Schedule part.
d) Lord Buddha over the Executive part.
2) India's constitution is the longest constitution in the world.

Both Hindi and English versions were handwritten - longest handwritten constitution in the world.

Handwritten by Prem Behari Narain Raizada in a flowing italic style with beautiful calligraphy.
3) The Constitution was published in Dehradun and photo-lithographed by the Survey of India.

The Constituent Assembly, which first met on 9 December 1946, took precisely 2 years, 11 months and 18 days to come up with the final draft.

#CAA hearing begins in the #SupremeCourt. Attorney General KK Venugopal starts by saying the Centre has prepared a preliminary affidavit that will be filed today. Sibal asks for a #Constitution Bench to which #CJI replies saying this might go to the larger bench

Sibal: NPR begins in April so some interim order could be issued..

Centre opposes it, saying arguments will have to be made if any interim plea has to be argued.

AM Singhvi cites UP example, says this is an irrevocable process.

CJI: We may ask them to issue some temporary permits for the time being.

AG: The law itself talks about taking back the citizenship in certain situation.

In Nov 2019, a narrow 3:2 majority of the #SupremeCourt decided to keep the #Sabarimala review petitions pending.

It held that overarching questions pertaining to #ReligiousFreedom & #GenderEquality must first be decided by a larger 9-judge Bench.
The 9-judge Bench of the #SupremeCourt will begin hearing arguments on the overarching questions next week, on 13 January.

#Sabarimala #SabarimalaReview #SabarimalaTemple
There are several key cases that will be effected by the outcome of this 9-judge Bench matter:

A) Yasmeen Zuber v. UOI - Do practices prohibiting the entry of women into mosques violate the right to #equality?

1. This letter really pisses me off

This is from @tedcruz and 11 other Senators to #Trump Nov 2018 urging Trump 2 get the #USMCA in their hands by 11/30/18 so the lame duck Republican Congress could approve the USMCA before the Dems got the House 1/1/19…
2. Had the Republicans gotten the USMCA approved by 12/31/18 we would already be under the USMCA

The REASON it pisses me off is because it is Ted Cruz specifically.


But it is being called a Congressional Executive Agreement
3. A TREATY requires 2/3 approval of the Senate as per the #Constitution

There is NO SUCH THING as a Congressional Executive Agreement in the Constitution

Congress made that up - and it only requires simple majority of House + Senate to approve

So it started with this comment to a post on the #righttokeepandbeararms:

"People, our rights were given us by the #Constitution. Those rights you are talking about were NOT given by #God!"
There are folks who believe this claim to be true. For example, @ChrisCuomo, who famously declared on his news program, "our rights do not come from God." (He offered no explanation of why #ThomasJefferson was wrong to claim that they do, in the #DeclarationofIndependence.)
But the assertion that our rights come from the Constitution would be #foreign to those that drafted, debated, and ratified the #BillofRights:

If you have lots of #guns, ammo, attachments, & all of a sudden you live in a state where its "illegal" to own something, dont say "#IWillNotComply" then die as a martyr. it will be you vs 50 heavily armed, highly trained men, with tear gas, dogs, body armor & more. #virginia
When i say be smart, i mean, BE SMART. Not a moron by thinking you are actually going to "win" by resisting. Your violation of your rights will NOT bring in a backup of patriots in time from all around the state or country. Patriots will be patient & get the facts 1st.
This means, they will wait until the next day to find out that you were wrongfully arrested, arrested due to a new law thats #unconstitutional, or you were killed in a shootout & made to look like the bad guy, or a "domestic terrorist." If you are in a position, you vs 50 others

I have no idea how many people have actually realize this or not but for the national guard to attempt to disarm the people is a direct act of war.
Most people don't know the police are violating their own Federal statutes everyday & have no duty to protect the general public, but before I go on I will share the root of the problems we face on the day to day basis.
The system we're participating in is not the original from the founding fathers/framers.

Thread - The Fasces Throughout History
@SpeakerPelosi has been wearing a particular pin multiple times throughout the #ImpeachmentHoax & I was curious what it meant.

I believe it is the "Fasces" which was the original symbol of #Fasism under Mussolini.
The #Fasces is an ancient Imperial Roman symbol of power carried by victors in front of magistrates. It depicts a bundle of sticks with an axe, indicating power over life and death.

The nefarious symbolism of the #Fasces in the ancient Roman Empire took on a different denotation in the birth of America, especially noted at the #LincolnMemorial.

Read on to see my opinion of @SpeakerPelosi's pin.

Yesterday, @realDonaldTrump became the 3rd President to be impeached. In the debate of the impeachment article of the #Constitution, a challenge was posed: A senate which was of the same political persuasion as the President would never vote to impeach. /1
Alexander Hamilton responded forcefully that it would be the senators’ own political self-interest that would prevail. /2
Hamilton asserts that upon evidence of impeachable acts and the attempted manipulation of the trial by senate leaders, the senators will vote to convict the president or they will allow the president to become the author of their “mismanagement and disgrace”. /3
