@MarshaBlackburn Marsha is lying. She’s a #KochNetwork #DarkMoney member and rewriting the Constitution is their primary goal. They’re closer to it than most people are aware of...
* See next tweet for the details.…
@MarshaBlackburn 🚨 Important warning from Nancy MacLean, author of “Democracy In Chains”. She’s speaking to impeachment, but her words apply to the bigger picture.
Check your State... be vigilant & take no Twitter or press opinions as fact. This is too important.
@MarshaBlackburn This meeting happened in July 2020! #KochNetwork member,
Scott Walker, “other budget hawks hatch plan to force constitutional convention”
They’re taking full advantage of trump’s ability to distract and the #COVID19 crisis

Democracies globally need all manner of reform. It’s not just USA & UK where #DarkMoney & foreign adversaries essentially steal elections. We can’t forget role of #socialmedia & pol parties using data against us. We must #DefendDemocracy in #Canada, Africa, S. America & beyond…
Even further than campaign finance reform & regulating #socialmedia (there’s no reason Zuckerberg, Liberals, CPC & 3rdParty poli arms need to micro-target ads, we had successful #democracy & elections before this divisive capability, IMO more so) — #NATO must expand its purview…
#NATO’s battlefield must incl #cyberwar, #informationwarfare, w/ a mission to #DefendDemocracy!

Surely NATO knows the global alliance can win the fight but lose the war? We’ve already lost parts of #Europe (full or in part) to #Russia & #authoritarianism w/o a shot fired. All…

FYI... Hogan is a #KochNetwork and #DarkMoney member. Same group responsible for trump's election, running the WH, GOP and for the agenda we're experiencing right now. tRump is their #TrojanHorse
Fact check!
The #KochNetwork's vast network includes many faux bi-partisan orgs & think tanks. It's part of their "social integration" theory & "web of influence" used to mainstream their people & radical ideology.
PLEASE read up on them & learn to recognize their methods & non profits.
The press covers Hogan exactly the way trump was covered during 2016....rosy PR without checking or providing important background info

What's really disappointing is observing twitter influencers & journalists doing the same for him and other faux moderates.

There is increasing evidence that right wing parties across the globe have made alliances with Putin/Kremlin-linked operations & oligarchs to sabotage democracy. That includes #GOP & #Tories. I don’t think it’s a stretch to demand that #CPC be investigated for this too. #cdnpoli
UK #RussiaReport should serve as a wake up call to 🇨🇦. Estimates of Russian private holdings abroad are between approx $800B & $1.3T. Resources held by oligarchs, businessmen & Putin linked companies, represent a vast sum available for use in #DarkMoney influence operations.
.@mikercarpenter summarizes 3 types of malign influence operation: information operations, elite infiltration & destabilizing operations. All of which have been active in 🇨🇦. Trudeau’s gov’t has been a steady target while RW parties are “helped”. #cdnpoli…

Below is the beginning of a RWing (#Koch, #CNP) disinfo/messaging campaign.The point is to sow discontent...unfair taxation, gov. misusing taxpayer $, public ed syst. is failed experiment,etc.(similar to trump campaign themes) to stir public anger & speak to their base

These same talking points (from the article) will be echoed via RWing outlets like FOX, GOP officials at all levels & ultimately by "debate" from the press, academics... both sides.

Don't take the bait. THIS is really about the #KochNetwork & #CNP's attempt to shutter schools
The #KochNetwork often uses subtle "weapons" such starving school budgets, attacking teachers unions, gathering public consensus w/out disclosing their true goals (charters,vouchers), disinfo campaigns to parents & voters, fake lobby/think tanks to mainstream & drive their agenda

New FEC docs show that 96% of the money the pro-Elizabeth Warren Persist PAC super PAC raised came from Democratic megadonor Karla Jurvetson of California, who gave $14.6 MILLION
Prior to bankrolling the pro-Warren Persist PAC super PAC, Karla Jurvetson's Women.Vote 501(c)(4) #darkmoney group had supported Warren in a newspaper ad in Iowa that drew condemnation from Warren's campaign cc @AlxThomp
Prior to that, the Warren campaign had also turned to megadonor Karla Jurvetson to help cover the cost of the DNC's voter database, per @rubycramer

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the state
A whole bunch of folks just weren't doing so great;
With no health insurance, and school weeks 4 days
The legislature was unworthy of praise. #moleg
Lawmakers were sleeping all snug in their beds
While visions of #DarkMoney danced in their heads.
The will of the people they chose to ignore;
Democracy seemed just too much of a chore.
To make voting easy, they simply refused
For a map with #fairdistricts, they just had no use.
The roads they were crumbling, the bridges were too;
Where cement was needed, the fix was but glue.
Women and doctors were growing irate;
Their bodies and freedoms now seized by the state.
Our unions and workers faced ruthless attack
Wishing for someone who just had their back.

A denier asked me the other day: "why should we be listening to some 16 year old kid?"

"Would you prefer to listen to climate scientists?"


When the kids in America had enough of the mass-shootings & took on the NRA, inevitable response from the adults who like things exactly as they are was: "they're puppets." It's what you say rather than listening, let alone stepping up #GretaInAlberta
One of the prime messages @GretaThunberg makes over and over again can be distilled down to "listen to the science and act accordingly."

Imagine adults thinking that's controversial. #GretaInAlberta

When you strip away everything, you pull out the petulant demand from Donald to dig up dirt on Joe Biden’s son. It comes down to money.

Giuliani, Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman & Harry Sargent III (former Republican FL state finance chair) all worked ...
... to try to place “their guys” as CEO & prime Sr. exec positions of the government run Ukrainian Oil and Gas company. Igor & Lev seem to have bought their way into Donald’s inner circle (& a White House meeting) by donating $325k to a Trump PAC.
Both Lev and Igor have documents that three of the House committees have requested in the impeachment process. Both have declined to provide those documents. We’ve been assured that subpoenas are coming to gain access to those documents.

@McFaul When will people wake up & realize that the Republican party is a christofascist party now? They have no desire to play fair or lose power. This is 50 plus years of consorting with the religious right. The religious right is tight with Russia.
@McFaul Why doesn't the #MSM report on all the members of Council for National Policy in this administration? Their goal is theocracy by 2020. They're no different than ISIS or Al-Qaeda. Religious extremists are dangerous.
@McFaul Read the books #DemocracyInChains, #DarkMoney, and watch the series about #TheFamily. Wake up people!!!

No election law cops on the beat to serve and protect just when you need them the most. It’s all up to voters to turnout in large enough numbers to beat the cheaters backing an un-indicted co-conspirator.
Britain struggles with its own existential electoral fraud enforcement crisis. How much more democracy needs to be subverted before the tides turn?
The @FEC’s response to #CambridgeAnalytica’s blatant campaign violations is now effectively shelved with the vacancies. Is it time to sue the FEC?

At the same time that #DavidKoch has cast himself as a champion in the fight against cancer, Koch produces formaldehyde in great quantities, as a “known carcinogen” in humans." Koch lobbyied to prevent E.P.A from labeling formaldehyde as such #DarkMoney…
"Scientists have long known that formaldehyde causes cancer in rats, and several major scientific studies have concluded that formaldehyde causes cancer in human beings—including one published last year by the National Cancer Institute, on whose advisory board Koch sits."
"The study tracked twenty-five thousand patients for an average of forty years; subjects exposed to higher amounts of formaldehyde had significantly higher rates of leukemia."

A conservative activist’s behind-the-scenes campaign to remake the nation’s courts
The money behind the #FederalistSociety is no mystery. Charrles Koch has given it $6.5M directly since 1997, plus shifting $$$ through other ‘non-profits’ (Donors Trust & Donors Capital Fund, plus collecting a network of other billionaires and corporations (“#KochNetwork).

NEW: Candidates, political parties, super PACs, and #darkmoney orgs routinely spend billions of dollars to secure power in the political system. But the @FEC fails to ensure they don’t break our election laws. Our new report looks at why it doesn't work:…
@FEC The @FEC lacks the budget, staff, and teeth it needs to enforce the country’s campaign finance laws as the 2020 elections unfold
@FEC While it is common knowledge that the FEC gridlocks frequently, it is less known that the agency is severely understaffed and underfunded. The lack of resources is crippling the enforcement of existing election and anti-corruption laws.

Finally, we discover who has been running the massive #DarkMoney-funded campaign for a no-deal Brexit. Why the hell should such campaigns be allowed to keep their backers secret?…
I wrote about these ads and the non-disclosure of their backers in February. We now know who ran them. We *still don't know* who paid for them.…
.@Tim_R_Dawson, the only public face of this #DarkMoney campaign, has plenty of questions to answer. Like: who's paying? Over to you, Tim.

📌”No further indictments” means no further prosecutions conducted by SCO; however the fruits of his probe were indeed farmed out to other venues for prosecution.
