Hey everyone: for those who can vote and plan to vote, remember to periodically check and make sure that your registration is in tact. The voter roll purges over the next year are going to be intense. #DemocraticDebate #DemDebates #DemDebate5 #JulianDebates
Mark your calendar and if checking online is a thing, check your voter registration at least once a month to make sure you are still listed properly.
Definitely check right before any big deadlines for registering in time to vote.

Ahead of tonight's #DemDebate (moderated by all women) we took a look at the 600 questions asked of candidates so far, and how the subjects of them lined up with moderators gender, race and ethnicity. (A thread!) 1/…
First things first: There's a debate in political science about the efficacy of representation - is it stronger for a woman to represent issues dear to women, or equally strong for a man?

There's a strength in allyship, per @MelissaDeckman… 2/
When it comes to the questions asked in the past 6 #DemDebates about issues traditionally dubbed "women's issues," women have taken the lead (14/18).

And: Latino and black moderators have asked ~4 in 10 questions about civil rights and immigration.… 3/

Okay we are taking a quick break.

So if I am keeping up...we have covered a number of topics tonight on the #DemDebates and no candidate has tied any of it to sexual violence.

Let me see if I can help them out.

They started with impeachment of the current president for the Ukrainian controversy. I have another reason. #metooVoter…
They jumped over to Biden and the questioning of his integrity. #metooVoter…

#HologramTHREAD: DNC Bullshit

I've slept on this. I've thought about not saying it. I've thought about just keeping it to myself.

I can't.

The DNC made a special provision to keep Tom Steyer in the race and give him a shot at Debate #5.

Billionaire Tommy Boy, late to show up
to the Election of the Century, (1) bought his way into Debate #4 with dubious means, and now (2) had the DNC kowtow to him to keep him (and his money) around for a while longer.

As someone representing a true grassroots candidate, this is INFURIATING. Here's what it is:
Because Steyer has been pouring his $$billions$$ into Iowa and New Hampshire. Every so often, odd polls would show up with Steyer pulling 6% in an early state. There's no way that Steyer can get 3% nationally: He has zero grassroots. He runs $$millions$$ in online ads to get

Tonight on the @CNN #climateforum, Democratic candidates will talk through their plans to rapidly transition our country to clean energy. We’re guessing we’ll hear a lot about #renewables & carbon pricing. But what will they say about #nuclear energy?

Will they mention that it’s the largest source of carbon free electricity in the US?

#climateforum @wolfblitzer @ErinBurnett @andersoncooper @ChrisCuomo @DonLemon
Will anyone point out that, considering the scale of the challenge, we should get rid of fossil fuels before even thinking about getting rid of nuclear?

This is a thread about what occurred at the Democratic Debate when @KirstenJohnFoy @Mysonne @angelopinto720 @lsarsour and I made the decision to stand up for Eric Garner and the sanctity of Black life. #DemDebates
We could not sit silent while @NYCMayor Bill DeBlasio misrepresented his positions on Stop and Frisk and continues to employ the police officers who killed #EricGarner, in particular Daniel Pantaleo.
We chanted “Fire Pantaleo” after he concluded and it was over. We went back to enjoying the debate. A security officer came over to us and said as long as you stay quiet you can remain.

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

.@PeteButtigieg's quotes from the debate, a long thread. Divided into differently lengthened segments for your reading delight. #DemDebates #DemDebate2 #TeamPete
"I'm running for president because our country is running out of time. It is even bigger than the emergency of the Trump presidency. Ask yourself how somebody like Donald Trump ever gets within cheating distance of the Oval Office in the first place. 1/5
"It doesn't happen unless America is already in a crisis -- an economy that's not working for everyone, endless war, climate change. We have lived this in my industrial Midwestern hometown. My generation has lived this as long as we have been alive. 2/5

I watched "The Great Hack" today, then browsed news articles about it and was more than a little startled. Did nobody except @WIRED… understand that the "hack" was a social/psychological one that forces examination of our current definition of "private"?
@WIRED Brittany Kaiser said their platform fell within the UK's definition of information warfare. Let that sink in. Cambridge Analytica ran a bunch of #psyops in Africa & some in Asia tweeking their targeting before setting it loose on the UK and USA. #TheGreatHack
@WIRED CA's psych warfare & RU's voting platform hacks need to be front and center in #DemDebates but you know they won't be.… #TheGreatHack

Some unsolicited thoughts on the #DemDebates:

I reject this “moderate” vs “progressive radical” Democrat framing. It’s established by the Republicans, which is now an extreme party. The center has shifted right. Anyone to its left is always radical, socialist, Muslim Kenyan. 1/
Compared to Trump, every single Democratic candidate is...wait for it...a MODERATE. Just look at their comments on race, pluralism, national security, even income inequality, climate change, health insurance COMPARED to Trump's comments and policies.

Who’s the extremist? 2/
Democrats need to stop being hijacked by Trump’s base that will never, ever vote for them. Court your base, which is the majority & the diverse multicultural coalition. Blacks, women, immigrants, asian americans, latinos, educated whites, now independents, youth…3/ #DemDebate

1/ #Racism- and #Sexism-by-Proxy … a thread:

A while back, my usually-progressive son said it was wrong to give children 'black' names like LaShawn or LaTonya.

"There's so much racism," he said. "Their resumes and other applications will be rejected because of their names."
2/ I said this was a classic example of racism-by-proxy: "I'M not racist, but OTHER PEOPLE are … and we should all cater to them."

"But I'm just being realistic!" he countered. "Racists won't change, so black parents should give their kids race-neutral names."
3/ I said racists won't change if we never challenge their racism.

"If we accept racism as an immutable fact and act as if we must all adapt our lives to fit their biases," I said, "we help perpetuate racism. We practice racism-by-proxy."

After the first round of #DemDebates I'm 100% confident Trump will win in a landslide because the Democrat party is imploding on itself. It has no message that's appealing to American citizens.

These debates weren't for American Democrats.
These candidates were pandering to specifically immigrants for votes and big donors like the Koch brothers for big money.

They know they're not appealing to average Americans or even citizens of their own party.
They're still trying to cover up a simple fact.

Trump was a former Democrat who stole their Blue collar/labor platform right out from underneath them. They can't run on the economy or get union support.

The Unions and labor groups were the backbone of the Democrat party.

1. Good afternoon and welcome to the White House #ShadowBriefing . Brought to you today by @WMM_podcast and new sponsors @StephGrisham45 and @StormyDaniels Welcome both of you to the family. It's day 107 without a White House briefing with no end in site for our hostage.
