Most recents (24)

Of 15 #Republican candidates for Secretary of State (the office that oversees #elections), in 5 battleground states,

10 lack confidence in the 2020 results or flat-out claim it stolen.

Only 2 of 9 interviewed acknowledged #Biden as the legitimate winner.
In 2020, #Trump, and #GOP legislators, not only undermined trust in elections, with false claims repeatedly debunked, they told partisan state legislators to send electors for Trump in states where voters selected Biden; a blatant rejection of #democracy.
It was only laws, and honorable officials holding to those laws, that prevented the #coup from succeeding.

The GOP are not done. Those protections are only going to get weaker with time.

Praying for defeat: Labour insiders accused of wrecking #Corbyn campaign in leaked report…
The #Labour Party has launched an “urgent investigation” into a leaked internal report on antisemitism, which has revealed evidence of factionalism and alleged sabotage that took place during Jeremy #Corbyn's four-year tenure as party leader.
The 860-page report found evidence of a “hyper-factional atmosphere” at the party’s headquarters with regards to #Corbyn, who was replaced by former shadow Brexit secretary Keir #Starmer as party leader earlier this month.

📽️⚡️#Libya after the LPDF. Clip #4 from my interview with @alsyaaq just dropped.

For further context, see the three articles in the thread below from the @FT, @guardian, and @libyaherald
1) August 2014. "The victory, which secures Islamist control over Tripoli, was a culmination of weeks of fighting triggered by elections in July, lost by Islamist parties." #Libya #OperationDawn #FajrLibya #Coup…
2) 2015: "Publicly, western the..UN-mediated talks..between the democratically elected government now based in Tubruq+the Islamist and Misurata-backed coalition of militias+political groups that seized control of the capital last August"…

#EpicFail. We are not a #SovereignNation anymore. We are not a #Democracy anymore. #Insurrection will be repeated at every election, but they won't wait till then. This was just the rehearsal. #Republicans did this because they knew they could never get legit elected again. #Coup
Why don't you give the rest of those #CapitolPolice & your 400 intimidated staffers more medals? Lots of good that will do when someone comes to kill them! You sweep it under the rug. No wonder some police felt so betrayed they went home & killed themselves. They should all quit.
@LeaderMcConnell says "Prosecute him!" b/c that way, the full extent of #McConnell's involvement in the #coup will not be laid bare. Sure #ProsecuteTrump, that ought to be easy after #MAGATerrorists come back w/30K guns in May as they promised & #QAnonShaman is confirmed as #AG. Image

For all who are interested in the politics of #Burma and for all those who have been left questioning the logic and timing behind this supposed '#coup' - I think we need to first understand that there was no #democracy to begin with
The 2008 Constitution was written by the #Tatmadaw for the #Tatmadaw
1. 25% seats go to military
2. Military retains power in key depts and retains veto
3. Commander in Chief can call State of Emergency at a whim
The idea of the #Burma constitution 2008 was that with the combination of the 25% reserved seats and with the #military proxy party USDP only needing to secure 25% more of the popular vote, the military would always retain 'democratic' control

How Does The #Myanmar #Coup affect #Rohingya? [An Explainer Thread]

Approximately 600,000 #Rohingya remain in #Burma - more than a quarter reside in concentration-like IDP camps and the majority of the rest live in daily fear of new and ongoing violence against them.
How Does The #Myanmar #Coup affect #Rohingya?

The #military #coup could see the #Rohingya facing the backlash once again as it is the same military and leaders that were responsible for #genocide in 2017.
Also they will continue to be excluded from future democratic processes
How Does The #Myanmar #Coup affect #Rohingya?

For the #Rohingya now in #Bangladesh - more than 1million, any potential #repatriation will be halted. The #Burma #military have no intention of accepting back the #Rohingya

for everyone who is confused af about the #burma #myanmar #coup - for those who are asking, should we be calling out for #SuuKyi release? but wasnt she the one who defended and oversaw #genocide against #rohingya ? but how come everyone is up in arms about her detention now...
is it the #military or is it #suukyi who is the bad guy here...
I understand and get why you are confused. Let me just say this to clear it up for you - they were in bed together the whole time through.
There has never really been any #democracy in #Myanmar #Burma...
#SuuKyi was just a puppet for the #military. This #coup isnt even really a coup, because according to the #constitution of #Burma the military is legally entitled to do this. So what can the world do I hear you say?...

#Myanmar 🇲🇲 BREAKING: #AungSanSuuKyi has been arrested alongside the country's President according to her party the #NLD.

It seems that the military is commiting a coup.
Unlike before it will be very hard for #AungSanSuuKyi and the #NLD to profile themselves as champions of democracy in #Myanmar 🇲🇲.

In the short period that they were in a shared position of power they allowed the #Rohingya genocide to take place and defended the perpetrators.
That being said the actions of the #Tatmadaw are clearly a coup and the international community should retaliate.

The people of #Myanmar 🇲🇲 deserve better than to go back to the dark days of military totalitarianism.

There are powerful #parallels between #DonaldJTrump & #JohnFKennedy in their respective relations with the #DeepState

Both president focused on greater international cooperation to #peacefully resolve global conflicts but were opposed by the #DeepState

Both presidents made extensive cooperation w/ #Russia key to their policy priorities & focused on greater international cooperation to peacefully resolve global conflicts, but were opposed by the #DeepState’s machinations to heighten these conflicts to fuel the armaments industry ImageImageImageImage

Is the USA having a #coup, or is #LARP just really making a comeback?
Coup or live action role-playing game (LARP)?
US Markets seem to not care. An actual coup would move these.

This is a #coup. I don't care what the lame stream media people are calling it this is a coup, encouraged by Trump.

These are also the bulk of your DONORS Congressman.

* Panetta takes a lot of money from rich, right-wing autocrats who helped install

A 12 year deputy as Sheriff of Monterey County. Why?


Here are two of @RepJimmyPanetta's close associates and major funders of @AdeleFrese's @SalinasPD - Don Chapin's buddies and Jimmy Panetta doers. #MontereyCounty

It take a long time to get to the crisis point the US finds herself in today and at every local level you will find elected officials that led to this point - and make no mistake - it's a very dangerous time.

Voter fraud was used in the 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, & 2020 elections. We saw “found” ballots for one candidate in non-approved locations. We saw unexplained data anomalies. Evidence was substantial, but no investigations?! Time to end this... #MerryChristmas #Thread
#Election2020 Massive Voter Fraud & Election Fraud Orchestrated by Democrats & Conspirators, with Cover-Up Co-Conspirators in Media & Social Media platforms. This means #RICO , #Coup , #Sedition , & #Treason.
When you have this many election officials crying foul, data scientists crying foul over voting system data, voter crying foul over votes cast fraudulently in their name, dead voters, senile nursing home residents targeted, & people hiding machines & evidence, it is malevolent.

1. #Coup #LawyersForTrump engaged in frivolous litigation as part of the @GOP announced coup are getting smart. On Snell & Wilmer withdrawal in #Arizona, does anyone know if they sent something ex parte for court to review in camera? That could indicate client crime or fraud.
2. Thomson Reuters Westlaw Today says that the only remaining large firms doing the Trump litigation are Jones Day and Porter Wright. The article addresses mail-in ballot suit that Jones Day filed in June. Does anyone have link to that case? Is it still pending?

From March to August this year, we supported @fairdealguyana and other partners as Guyana teetered on the brink of autocracy for 5 months because a wannabe President-for-Life refused to concede the election long after it was clear he had lost the vote.
In Guyana, as in the US, the outcome of the vote was clear to anyone with eyes. In Guyana, as in the US, the international community immediately and vocally called on the losing incumbent to accept the result and peacefully transition.
In Guyana, as in the US, the loser launched a barrage of legal claims designed to subvert the democratic process, sow confusion, and delay the inevitable outcome.

@d9monti @shannonrwatts I think #Democrats are misunderstanding (and underestimating) the #GOP/#Trump play here.

They are *NOT* trying to win these frivolous lawsuits!

What they *ARE* trying to do is:

1. Delay #vote certifications; and/or,
2. Keep multiple lawsuits alive in various #states.

@d9monti @shannonrwatts Thus allowing #GOP controlled legislatures to declare that b/c the #election results are disputed (see: lawsuits) they have no option but to "reluctantly" exercise their #Constitutional duty under Article II Section 1 Clauses 2 thereof & appoint their own #electors!


@d9monti @shannonrwatts State legislatures #GOP controls:

1. #Arizona (11 Electoral Votes)
2. #Georgia (16 Electoral Votes)
3. #Wisconsin (10 Electoral Votes)
4. #Michigan (16 Electoral Votes)
5. #Pennsylvania (20 Electoral Votes)

= 73 Electoral Votes #GOP legislatures will try to flip to #Trump.

1/4 Dear @choosedemo @StandUpRepublic @IndivisibleTeam @ProtectResults,

What more than this do we need to see to call this a #coup and mobilize against it?

- Trump’s refusal to concede;
- Trump‘s personal and official refusals to participate in the transition process;
- McConnell’s public statement supporting Trump’s refusal to concede made within an hour of Barr meeting with McConnell at McConnell’s offices;
- McEnany using her position and office to spout campaign propaganda;
- Esper’s warning days before he was fired: “Who’s going ...
3/4 ... to come in behind me? It’s going to be a real ‘yes man.’ And then God help us.”;
- Trump‘s end run around the appointment confirmation process by replacing Esper with a man who could not by law be confirmed under 10 U.S. Code § 113 as Acting Sec’y of Defense;

Repubs are plotting a coup in plain sight. Barr's getting DOJ to probe "irregularities" which don't exist. He met w/ McConnell today. Now every GOP is spewing "legal/illegal" vote nonsense. Trump said there'd be no transition & meant it. He & GOP are blocking Biden's transition!
Barr’s direction upends DOJ rule saying prosecutors should NOT launch voter fraud investigations until after election results are certified. That guidance was designed to ensure that voters & state & local election officials—NOT the federal government—decide the election results.
“The best case scenario is that Barr did this to appease Trump and add credibility to his allegations of voter fraud…The worst case scenario is that DOJ is planning to intervene in some way and try to throw the election to the president.”—@matthewamiller…
