Big #Republican influencers were there at the beginning, the funders behind the organization called the @FedSoc that selected #Kavanaugh.

(Per White House itself, #FederalistSociety was “insourced” to White House for this.)
Big #Republican influencers were there after selection, behind the multi-million #darkmoney campaign to pressure Senators on #Kavanaugh.
Big #Republican influencers loomed over the Senate during hearings and votes, and are ecstatic today claiming their prize.

YOU have risen up to #resist. Without any centralized or organizational foundation, you helped grow a massive online movement. Through #FBRParty #FBR and other hashtag advocacy, you did this.
(2 of 8)
YOU have created an international coalition, bringing together a diverse group of people who are raising up to demand change, not just here in America but across the world. You have inspired people to speak up.

Like former McCain adviser @SteveSchmidtSES, I have a hard time believing Ed Whelan when he says he didn’t coordinate his crackpot “doppelganger” theory with #Kavanaugh, the @WhiteHouse, and @SenateGOP.
Whelan has long been at the center of the @FedSoc’s secretive & powerful inner circle. He’s close friends with #Kavanaugh & has been scheming with Leonard Leo about how to salvage this fast-sinking nomination.

They’ve all been pushing the insulting theory that Dr. Ford was just “mixed up,” and Whelan somehow got Ford’s name before it was ever published. washingtonpost.com/news/opinions/…

BREAKING! Major #SCOTUS @FEC decision determining how 2018 #campaignfinance will be reported.

In a nutshell: It limits the ability of #darkmoney groups to keep their donor lists secret this election. /1
@FEC This is a real victory for transparency. As a result, the American people will be better informed about who’s paying for the ads they’re seeing this election season.

/2
@FEC The details:

8/3: Trial court rules @FEC regulation allowing #darkmoney groups to hide donors is illegal. Delays killing reg until 9/17.

9/15: DC Circ. declines to extend that delay; Chief Justice Roberts *does* extend it.

Full #SCOTUS just flipped that: The reg is dead. /3

As @chrisgeidner breaks this news: Reminder: Crossroads GPS ranks as the No. 2 top-spending #darkmoney group since #CitizensUnited. It told the #FEC it spent ~$110M on political ads between January 2010 & December 2016 bit.ly/2xd1xud
A top Crossroads GPS official once said: “Some donors didn’t want to be disclosed. They were more comfortable giving to a (c)(4), and so we created one.” n.pr/2NUCC7W via @peteroverby @nprpolitics
.@IssueOneReform combed through public records and identified 10 donors to Crossroads GPS. These donors accounted for just 2% of the $349M Crossroads GPS raised between June 2010 & December 2016 bit.ly/2xd1xud

More than $800M has been spent in elections by #darkmoney groups since #CitizensUnited per @OpenSecretsDC

Did you know that the top 15 groups account for 75% of this spending?

A new @IssueOneReform report examines these 15 major dark money groups

issueone.org/dark-money/
Fact: Most of the top #darkmoney groups are attack dogs. For 14 of the top 15 groups, more than 50% of their spending on ads overtly calling for the election or defeat of candidates from 2010 to 2016 was negative. For 6 groups, more than 90% was negative bit.ly/2QnsXFB
Top among these #darkmoney groups was the US Chamber of Commerce, which reported spending ~$130M on political ads to the #FEC between 2010 and 2016. That’s about $1 of every $6 spent on political ads by all dark money groups during this time. bit.ly/2QnsXFB

It's very telling that the media Trump has demonized, aren't deemed worthy of lowering the flag to half staff.

Pull up a stump. I got a few things to say about the past week or so.

.@CNN has capitulated. @nytimes has insisted on coddling nazis, first by renaming them "white nationalists" and more recently, rebranding them "populists."

This is the epitome of political correctness. It is the abject surrender of the media to a burgeoning autocrat.
/2
Like many in the Resistance, I counted on the media to report the facts. I have subscriptions to NYT, @washingtonpost & my local paper, @latimes. I'm keeping WaPo & LAT, but I'm done paying NYT for the privilege of being lectured on civility by the likes of @maggieNYT.

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

.@elianayjohnson reports that a #darkmoney group, the previously unknown American Exceptionalism Institute, is spending $100k on ads that accuse Sen. Rand Paul of representing al Qaeda’s interest with his opposition to Gina Haspel’s CIA director nomination politico.com/story/2018/04/…
Johnson notes that the group was “incorporated a year ago by Columbus, Ohio-based attorney James Ryan.” American Exceptionalism Institute is now the third entity incorporated Ryan that started spending money to targeting politicians with ads.
As @AndrewJTobias reported, a c4 called the Independence and Freedom Network contributed $850k to a super PAC backing OH Lt. Gov Mary Taylor in her OH Gov bid right before the PAC ran ads against her opponent: cleveland.com/open/index.ssf…

We recently learned that among the first American candidates for national office to make use of Cambridge Analytica's services was Art Robinson, running for US Representative in Oregon's 4th district. But who is Art Robinson? Let's dig into this. 1/
oregonlive.com/today/index.ss…
Art Robinson has a PhD in biochemistry from the University of California. In 1980 he moved to Oregon and founded the nonprofit Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine in Cave Junction. Don't be fooled, though. This is not a prestigious organization. 2/
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_B.…
Cave Junction is a small, rural town in southern Oregon with fewer than 2000 residents. It is not a center of biochemical and health research. However, Robinson's OISM claims to research a wide variety of topics, including aging, elementary science education & the environment. 3/

Thread: What does the re-election of @WillHodgman Tas Liberal government mean for the prospect of the basic anti-#corruption reform of requiring disclosure of political donations? #tasvotes #politas #tasvotes2018
2) In the campaign Hodgman said the current federal laws are adequate. In short, only donations over $13,500 this year will have to be disclosed, increasing in in following years in line with CPI #tasvotes #politas #tasvotes201
3) Here’s an earlier thread of mine on the origins and problems with the current federal political donations laws #tasvotes #politas #tasvotes2018

Finished reading through superseding Mueller Indictment on Manafort and Gates. Here’s my take: #theRESISTance #TrumpRussia
This one paragraph is a culmination of #TrumpRussia starting with Manafort’s allegiance to Russia #ElectionHacking for Yanukovych; the irony that Ukraine had an “Orange Revolution” and Manafort renting property in Trump Tower for years. Roger Stone where you at?
More on Manafort’s experience in #ElectionHacking and capabilities that together paint a picture Tony Soprano couldn’t paint:

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.
