This is what @SpeakerPelosi and the #Dems wants in the #coronavirus “stimulus“ package: Institutionalized ballot harvesting (i.e. voter fraud).

@dbongino @cnn @marklevinshow @seanhannity @rushlimbaugh @foxnewspolitics @RichSementa @DonaldJTrumpJr
As the author of the most recent Florida elections reform bill that passed into law I know this issue well.

Under this scheme people can request a ballot without ID and vote without proving they were the person voting. All they would have to do is “say” it was them.
Under this bill, a person can be paid to ballot harvest as long as they are not paid on a “per ballot basis”. So, essentially, someone can be riding around with hundreds of ballots in the front seat of their car and nobody could stop them as long as they’re paid hourly/salary.

#SANDERS CONCEDED THE RACE 3/11, said millions decided his "friend Joe #Biden" was more likely to beat Trump. No blaming the #DNC, no cries of rigged election. He began: my #1 goal is defeating Trump. Time for ALL #Sanders fans & #dems to unite. c-span.org/video/?c486304…
#Bernie counted on overperforming w/ young voters, but nearly 3% fewer people under 30 voted in 20 compared to 16. This was the only demographic group where Sanders had an advantage. The drop in youth vote & the surge in ALL OTHER groups (who voted #Biden) cost Sanders the race.
#Sanders earned LESS of the vote in EVERY RACE in '20 when compared to '16. On average, he underperformed by 17.6%. He did 35.4% worse in VT. He was down 10.9% in #DemocratsAbroad primary this weekend.

In EVERY state, #Sanders has done less well in 2020 than he did in 2016, underperforming by an average 17.6%.

In Vermont, for example, he won only 50.7% of the vote in '20, a drop of 35.4% from his '16 win. / thread
#Sanders' underperformance is partly explained by his failure to get new & young voters to the polls. In nearly every primary thru early March, fewer of those voters turned out than they did in '16.

.@CNN exit polls show nearly 3% fewer voters under 30 voted in '20 than they did in '16. #Bernie Sanders needed to overperform with this demographic.

Email to #Bernie shows campaign's pollster predicted he was within 4 points of #Biden in South Carolina. 2 days later, Biden blew out SC by nearly 30 points, turning the race around.

How Sanders' run came undone: thread int.nyt.com/data/documenth…
In Jan, @ZephyrTeachout, a law prof allied w/ #Sanders, wrote an op-ed alleging #Biden had “a big corruption problem," & the campaign sent it to everyone on its large email list.

✔️ #Sanders "put a stop to it. 'It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way.'"
In Feb, VT Rep @PeterWelch implored #Sanders to "ease up" on his attacks of #democrats. Welch believed it "sounded exclusionary to ordinary people backing other candidates, ... a lot of voters who are just everyday voters, who decided to vote for other #Dems" (NYT 3/21).

#Biden was 1st to introduce a #ClimateChange bill. His 1986 Global Climate Protection Act died in committee, but Reagan signed a version of into law when Biden successfully attached it as an amendment to a State Dept funding bill. /thread politifact.com/factchecks/201…
#Biden, introducing his #GlobalWarming bill in Jan 1987: "Life on this planet exists only under highly specialized circumstances" & "even a small rise in temperature could disrupt the entire complicated environment that has nurtured life as we know it." @PolitiFact
In 1/87 Senate speech, #Biden said #ClimateChange was a bigger threat than the USSR: Reagan told Gorbachev "‘that if we had an invasion from Mars, both sides would put aside our differences.’ While not an exterrestrial threat, global warming could prove no less dangerous."

1. ELECTION MEDDLING.
Watching @TheDemocrats get all bent over #Russia interfering in our elections is amusing.
We’ve been doing it to each other for 100 years. Yeah... 😂
FYI @BillClinton moved heaven and earth to get Yeltsin elected in 1996. 😱 #TWGRP

2 If #KnowledgeIsPower then let me Learn ya.
The US actually has a whole division of the #CIA dedicated to #ElectionMeddling.
This throws a little water on #Dems Fake outrage.
It’s called SAC or Special Activities center.
@SenSchumer knows this.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_A…
3 If that wasn’t enough, within SAC we have SOG, the Special Operations Group.
(Who makes up these names?)
Guess what they do??
Tactical paramilitary operations.
YUP! 😉
They use brute Force if needed but also Arm and Train rebels.
The most secret #CIA Div.
Think #Syria 👍🏻

<THREAD UK> The UK election didn't cut across class lines, left vs right economics or leave v remain. The fault-line which shattered decades of convention was white blue-collar towns flipping from Labour to Tory. #Dems #2020. /1 bbc.com/news/world-us-…
Many have said that there are echoes of BOJO's success fomenting in our in the 2020 election but who can benefit from those trend-lines is up for debate. There's a lot for Democrats to learn from Bojo's election strategy. /2 wsj.com/articles/in-u-…
The shift in blue-collar voters is a signal that diversity was on the ballot. White workers feel that their livelihood and sense of nationhood is on the line. They want to un-melt the melting pot. /3 economist.com/leaders/2019/1…

1/ My thread on #GOP defense of #Trump: General defense amounts to 2 arguments: 1. #Trump was genuinely concerned about #corruption in #Ukraine; 2) not enough evidence to #impeach. We have no evidence on the first & evidence to the contrary. Legally, there’s enough evidence.
2/ The strongest args #GOP makes - #Trump not caught on tape saying he was abusing his office for his personal gain. Ukraine history of corruption & publicly denied pressure. But you have to suspend reason & ignore a boatload of evidence to conclude he did nothing impeachable.
3/ #GOP on 7/25 call -#Trump didn’t reference reelection, Ukrainians happy it happened. #Volker didn’t see problem, NSC not complaining. Discounts #LtColVindman. Ignores #Pence aide thought it was “unusual” & #LauraCooper said Ukraine asked abt aid status same day after the call

<THREAD> I'll have a live feed and analysis of tomorrow's #ImpeachmentInquiry hearing from 10am. Here's what I'm expecting. @NarativLive
1. The elephant in the room: Is #Trump and agent of Russia? That's because you can't talk about #Ukraine without talking about #Russia and #Putin. Watch "Ukraine In A Minute" below to find out why. @NarativLive
2. The Dems want to focus narrowly on the recent events involving Ukraine but Trump has attempted to meddle in Ukraine since before taking office. Here's a look at the first #Ukrainegate

So, I ran across a retweet of the below tweet and it immediately raised flags. Puffing up a witness has a reason, so decided to go look for the documentation behind it, since it had a direct quote. Didn't take long - few minutes and NPR coughed it up (will link at the end)./1
About puffing someone up - the reason is to try to give the person credibility, their views more weight than they should be given, and to set them above someone they are in disagreement with. In this case, also to elicit support due to his medal./2
In the case of the tweet, it is immediately followed by the statement "speaking out against the command-in-chief." (you're suppose to gasp here I think)

Then "the reason" is given - people kept telling him he needed to speak up (be sure to ignore other possible reasons)./3

Strong priorities stated by #MattMasterson from @CISAgov but a focus on detecting interference will not detect insider rigging.
@CISAgov @EACgov Hovland saying states do not have the resources they need to protect #elections. And Election Assistance Commission budget is less than some cities spend on potholes.

What really is the Democratic Left?
Thread

Combating MSM, @DNC & the Right's misinformation campaign, propaganda & lies about where Left, Center & Right actually are politically w/ some fucking history & facts to protect our #Democracy from modern slavery #Neoliberalism.
French Revolution Nat. Assembly seating was origins of political Left & Right spectrum designations.

Left wanted reform, new constitution w/ Declaration of Rights of Man & of Citizen

Right wanted to continue Ancien Régime - monarchy & feudal nobility

2/
Examples:
1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
2. These rights are liberty, property, safety and resistance against oppression.
5. The law has the right to forbid only actions harmful to society...

Of 235 #Dems in the House, 139 publicly support #impeachment investigation on #Ukraine allegations that #Trump personally & directly intervened in release of foreig#n aid $ to a “hot” war zone & raised investigating #Biden. Today I expect we will hear #Pelosi saying it’s time.
While the #MuellerReoort gave ample grounds for concern on #Trump campaign 271 contacts with #Russians, this is a case where #Trump admits undeniably dangerous behavior & obstructing Congressional oversight of it.
#Trump calls #Ukraine Pres 1 day after #Mueller testimony in Congress reduces #GOP fear of #impeachment. bit.ly/2llpbBS

Agree that @jackgoldsmith makes impt pts but implication wld be no way to protect Nat’l security from a rogue #POTUS. AND...
As I tweeted yesterday...Congress has not conceded the point, explicitly reserving its position that it has a constitutional “need to know” of intelligence community wrong-doing.
Now imagine that a #POTUS subverts laws of the #US but does it in part, by sharing classified info w a foreign govt. Maybe it’s #treason or taking a bribe = unquestionably impeachable offenses.

The only thing keeping us from a full blown #TrumpRecession is your consumption. The consumer is strong while all else fails. If you limit your spending until #Election2020 you're helping to get #Trump out of office. RETWEET

#Resistance #DeutscheBankLoans #ResistersUnite #resist
Tariffs have increased prices on large appliances and other big purchases. It's in your best (#resister) interest to hold off on any big purchase until after the election. You'll ensure Trump can't boast about the economy, and you'll save money after #Dems are back in power.
You may think interest rates are low, so it's a good time to spend, however as the #TrumpRecession gathers steam the fed will need to lower rates. New #Dem prez will reduce tariffs. That will increase your buying power in 2021 and help @thedemocrats economy flourish.

While everyone screams about how horrible Texas is treating illegal immigrants.....fuck! Texas is having to DEAL with illegal immigrants. While you sit behind your fucking Ivory towers. Do something. Make laws. Stop this shit.
Do you know how often Texas ranchers find dead, or close to dead in their property? #MexicanCoyotes left them to die.
Most people who cross have paid to be brought over here. It’s not only costly for the illegals crossing, but it’s very lucrative to the ones who bring them.

@lauferlaw @maddow @TheRickWilson Today was the day we heard that a whistle blower from @IRS went to the House #DEMS with inside information on Trump’s #taxissues, stating that he/she saw irregularities.
@CREWcrew @Fahrenthold @ericgarland @AshaRangappa_
@lauferlaw @maddow @TheRickWilson Trump is never worse than when he’s on the road at an intl summit. We can expect complete unbridled bullshit heading our way from “over there.” It will not get better over the next three days. It will get worse. @guardian @SkyNews @BuzzFeed @thedailybeast

For clarity. When i say #showertime. I mean when the government puts drugs in your shower head, and you're dosed every time you take a shower. You'll be easily manipulatable, and appear crazy to the regular John.
You might also be impartial to taking showers, exhibiting all the symptoms of "mental illness". (and or smelling and looking like shit). So Obamas church crew, being led by "#mentalhealth professionals, local law enforcement officials" can come and get you. Under #ExecutiveOrder
But can you prove it to a Judge like Jeffrey Steven White??

Ask @SharylAttkisson
