Please read this thread and listen to what I have to say.
We have a serious problem in our country. The GOP is fascist. 1
You need to come up with a united messaging strategy & go on the attack. I'm a lifelong Democrat. I'm incredibly disappointed in the lack of defense of: #JudgeKetanjiBrownJackson; the #LGBTQIA community; abortion rights; voting rights; and civil rights of Americans.
It's time 2/
To have daily press conferences pointing out the danger of the GOP to Americans.
The GOP has been taken over by white, fundamentalist, 'Christian', nationalists, who don't believe in multi-culturalism, democracy, or separation of church & state, aka #Dominionism.

BREAKING THIS AFTERNOON: Congress Has Enough Evidence to Refer Former President Donald Trump to the Department of Justice for Federal Criminal Indictment and Prosecution—But Is Split on Doing So for Reasons That Only a Politician Would Ever Find Compelling nytimes.com/2022/04/10/us/…
PS/ Keep in mind that DOJ has a long and *illustrious* history—including under Merrick Garland specifically—of ignoring criminal referrals from Congress. So the idea that if Congress issues a referral and then DOJ indicts Trump it’ll seem like Congress made it happen is DERANGED.
PS2/ The amount you have to be up your own butt—thinking of optics, not *justice*—to say that a congressional referral would “politicize” a constitutionally mandated oversight function Congress has had since the 1700s is EXTRAORDINARY.

No one outside the Beltway thinks this way.

"The two pharmaceutical firms were originally scheduled to deliver two million shots in the next seven days, but shipped 1.4 million of those doses last week instead in anticipation of the May long weekend." We got them EARLY. And CTV is trying to make it sound bad. WTAF?
Here is an example of how our news media (which are mostly owned by conservative interests in the US) spin the news to affect people's perceptions. 2/7
Most people only read headlines. CTV can't actually just make stuff up and pass it off as news, but they can present information in such a way as to control what a majority of people will take away from the article. 3/7

Let's be clear: the GOP playbook is and has been to disenfranchise as many Black voters as possible in Michigan. #AllEyesOnMI #DoYourJob #VotersDecided 1/
That is what any effort to stall certification today will be about. It's what the the recent RNC/MI GOP letter signed by @GOPChairwoman & @MIGOPChair was about. It's what attempts to obstruct Wayne County certification were about. 2/
Michigan is one of the most segregated state in the country. The state is between 75 - 80% white, while our largest city, Detroit, is over 90% people of color, over 80% Black. 3/

@realDonaldTrump 3.Well I'm happy to report that my #PresidentElect did a least one thing yesterday to help him better understand how #RegularAmericans are faring these days! @JoeBiden met virtually w/a firefighter, a homecare worker, an ICU RN, & a teacher to talk about their experiences as...

🧵Thread🧵

You had to know this was a coming. Four short years ago, countless Dems, media folks & bluechecks were telling you #WeNeedNine on the Supreme Court.

Yet now, as we head into an election that’ll surely be contested their convictions have evaporated.

It’s a long list.
To kick it off, we’ll start with none other than the man who led the #WeNeedNine push, @BarackObama.

Is it no longer “irresponsible” to not consider a SCOTUS nominee before one is even announced, Mr. President?
And what say you, @HillaryClinton? If @realDonaldTrump announces his nominee, will you agree that he has “met his responsibility” as well? And that the Senate should do the same?

I would add: the Governor continuing to use the map as a way to whack districts that have made local judgements on what is safest for their students and staff is inappropriate. #MAEdu

1. Just so the record is clear. I used to watch @MSNBC all day. It's been off, with a few exceptions, for the past three days. When @MSNBC gets this obvious sociopath off its network, I will return. @POTUS @WhiteHouse @CNN
2. But in fairness, the @WhiteHouse #PressCorps is equally to blame. Can they answer these questions? Have they asked and not gotten a response?

A. On January 22, I called this a Pandemic in my post. When did @RealDonaldTrump receive a @ODNIgov briefing where word "pandemic"
3.
was used in relation to the #WuhanOutbreak?

B. Where are the documents that evidence what steps the @WhiteHouse took to increase ventilator, hand-sanitizer and PPE production? What are the documents and who has them? Will you produce them or require citizens sue and seek?

HELLO Alberta! #ableg The UCP government is planning to PRIVATIZE lab services. This is part of our health care system. The first step, I expect, in privatizing all of it. Why is no one talking about this??? @CBCCalgary @CBCEdmonton THIS IS NEWS!!!! People care about health care.
Why is this news, you may ask... Well, it means that every time your doctor send you for a screening test - blood, urine, mammogram, colonoscopy, or for a diagnostic test - X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, CT-scan, etc., YOU will be paying directly for it.
Or perhaps you will be paying higher insurance premiums so they can pay for it on your behalf. In the US, insurers have a reputation for questioning and not covering some tests. The more tests you have, the more your premiums go up. Whether insurance covers them or not...

@CBCNews The CBC NewsNetwork just had a guest, Martin Pelletier, and the discussion was on equalisation. Brilliant opportunity to provide some info on how equalisation works. But he didn't. Neither did host Andrew Nichols. Why can't the CBC educate on this? 1/4
Alberta does not send a cheque to Quebec. That is the popular notion here in Alberta, but it is not the way it works. All Canadians pay federal income taxes. The federal government takes a portion of this revenue pool and distributes it among provinces that are not 2/4
able to provide equal services to their citizens on their own, even while maxing out all possible provincial revenue sources. Alberta has the highest income level in Canada, so Albertans pay more taxes. This is where the idea that Alberta is funding Quebec comes from. 3/4

The difference between us is @RepDLesko would rather deal in fear and inaction, while I prefer solutions. We send people to Congress to do a job. She’s clearly not up to the task.
As a gun owner, I’ve said what I think can be done to address the problem that doesn’t impact anyone’s Second Amendment or due process rights. This is a solvable problem, just not by her. #DoYourJob #muscatoforcongress
Her expectation that a single law solves 100% of the problem is naive. Stopping even one mass shooter means saving dozens of lives. Given her support for the sanctity of unborn life, it’s interesting she has no apparent interest in protecting lives after they’re born. #Hypocrite

I was recently asked about the point of supporting legislation that will stall in the Senate.

My answer: my job is not to appease Mitch McConnell. Whether it’s gun violence prevention or holding the President accountable, my duty is to do what’s right for the people of CA-45.
As I said at my town hall on Saturday, if I only got out of bed on days I voted on something I thought would pass the Senate, I would have bedsores. politico.com/story/2019/08/…
The fact is: both chambers of Congress have important constitutional roles in the legislative process, but inaction is not an option. @senatemajldr should start legislating and bring bills to the Senate floor for up or down votes. The American people deserve no less. #DoYourJob

Watching #AmericanSwamp w/ @KatyTurNBC & @jacobsoboroff on Infrastructure. (great job btw)

Every member of Congress should spend a week in the seat next to one of our countries long haul truck driver to truly see how bad our #infrastructure is.

1/....
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff We as a country need to bite the bullet and raise the gas tax. Not only to support funding the of a massive improvement of the infrastructure.....

America is falling apart and next to nothing gets done at both ends of Pennsylvania Ave.

We must act now...

2/
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff Not only do we need to fix roads, but also the pipes that carries our water.

We have cities such as #FlintWaterCrisis #NewarkWaterCrisis that have lead in their water.

We also are losing vast amounts of water due to failing concrete pipes.....

Media literacy: Deconstructing political-speak. #cdnpoli
When a politician like Jason Kenney, who spent > a decade working for Stephen Harper, gets in front of a camera or microphone, you can bet that there will be no "winging it". Every word out of his mouth is deliberate.. 1/10
and thought through. There is no going off script. He knows what he wants to communicate and how he wants to communicate it. There is no accidental phrasing or memory slips. That is the first thing to keep in mind. 2/10
Here is a clip of a @CTV_PowerPlay interview about wildfires. Parsing will follow in subsequent tweets. Watch, then follow along... 3/10

@SpeakerPelosi He's attempting to be a dictator!! I truly believe that he premeditated his actions as President for decades. He planned all the ways he'd be able to take advantage of his position. Why you guys aren't ending this is beyond all logic!?! You're allowing him to be above law!!!...
@SpeakerPelosi ...Had this been anyone else with all these investigations, and blatant wrongdoings happening right in front of our eyes, they'd a been LONG GONE!!! Seriously, replace any of the headlines or investigations that have Trump's name, with the name Obama, and shit would've hit the...
@SpeakerPelosi ...fan a long time ago!!! Never have we had these forms of scandal and obvious wrongdoings in the history of the Presidency. Yet somehow, America is allowed to continue on as a circus!?! At this point, Trump is not the only one that is doing injustice towards the American...

For goodness sake! @CBCNews Are you going to call out Scheer's misinformation you are presenting right now on your station? 1. A DPA does not "let SNC off the hook" - can you have someone on who can accurately explain what a DPA is, please? #cdnpoli 1/4
2. #JWR was not fired. Can you have someone on to explain that a cabinet shuffle is not a "firing", please?
3. Can you also have someone on to clarify that, yes, people do experience and recall events differently? 2/4
Seriously. Let him speak. But don't let his misinformation stand as truth. Dissect his words as carefully as you dissect the PM's. It's only fair. You devoted hours this morning to tearing apart Trudeau's speech. Let's see you do the same with what Scheer says. 3/4

For goodness sake! @CBCNews Are you not supposed to be impartial? All morning you have had talking heads telling us the PM's message wasn't good enough. For CPC pundits there will never be anything the PM or the LPC government can do that will be good enough. #cdnpoli 1/8
Not just about SNC, but anything, ever. The media are largely responsible for what is essentially office politics gone sour turning into a crisis. You are doing Canadians a huge disservice by telling people what they should think. 2/8
Canadians are, by and large, intelligent and well-educated. Give us facts & let us make up our own minds. We do not need all these panelists and opinionaires declaring "Canadians feel..." They don't know how Canadians feel. They have no business making sweeping declarations 3/8

Is it just me, or do others have the impression that #cdnmedia is either bought and paid for by the CPC, or intimidated by them? The #SNCLavalin coverage/speculation has gone well into the realm of mind-numbingly boring and absurd... #cdnpoli 1/16
A rumour, printed in a right-leaning newspaper, without source, which for all we know, was planted in the reporter's ear by someone in the CPC, has dominated Canadian news coverage for more than a week... 2/16
And won't #cdnmedia all look silly if it turns out to be a non-issue? Meanwhile, we have a convoy of dubious provenance that rolled across the prairies and into Ottawa and #cdnmedia all cheerfully interview them as though they know what they are talking about... 3/16

The point of having an independent, publicly funded broadcaster is to have a Canadian voice that is not beholding to corporate sponsors or PACs with an agenda. Or, indeed, media outlet owners with definite political positions. #cdnmedia @CBCOmbud #cdnpoli 1/25
The CBC exists to do several things: To promote Canadian voices, talent, and stories through arts programming, music programming, and the development of Canadian dramatic series.... 2/25
To bring Canadians together through sharing our stories to the rest of the country, so someone in Victoria can understand a bit of what life is like in PEI, etc... 3/25

The two children should receive autopsies. and the cause of death should be made public and covered on EVERY media outlet that has reported it. We have children who die in the custody of public schools (#Parkland) It turns out the government IS responsible but no one reports it.
This article is from 2015..Wonder who was President then 🤔 Can anyone tell me why it was not addressed?

Nancy has lied since 1987. Someone with some mad editing skills should do a loop of all of them saying they'd secure the border
