Thread: #Trump legal team arguments for creating the constitutional crisis of complete #obstruction turns on 3 arguments that are all merit less:
#TrumpOnstruction arg 1.: The House must vote to have #impeachmentknquiry. Nope. Constitution doesn’t require it & neither do House rules. Judiciary must vote articles out & then send to full House. They’re working on it.
#TrumpObstruction arg 2: His #dueprocess rights are being violated. Nope. You don’t have a right to all the evidence before your charges & preparing for trial. And #Whistleblower protection is necessary given enormous power of #POTUS. But Trump knows the allegations. We all do.

You know what's intellectually lazy? Using the same tired arguments after every mass shooting.

We need to find a way to address gun violence so we don't have 49 people get shot up for enjoying their lives. And still preserve the Second Amendment. 1/
People are equating #RedFlag laws to banning guns. And they're just NOT the same thing. 2/
I'm going to start building on the idea, and share my own experience with firearms INCLUDING a time when an armed robber pointed his gun at ME! 3/

The expansion of #ExpeditedRemoval is a game changer.

Deportation without a hearing has been part of the law for a long time, but now, it essentially turns the entire United States into a border.

#DueProcess of law is dying a horrid death.
First: expedited removal, or ER, applied to noncitizens caught within 100 miles of the border who couldn't prove they'd been in the US for 2 weeks.

Under expanded ER, it's the whole US, and for anyone who can't prove they've been here for 2 *years*.

s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspect…
If you're in ER, the ONLY way out is to claim asylum and be scheduled for a "credible fear interview," or CFI. Even those have become harder of late. Otherwise, *you just get deported.*

Add to that the family separation, and you can see: THIS IS A NIGHTMARE SCENARIO.

1 good thing abt the on-going controversy over #RUGAMania in #Nigeria is it has brought attention back to what cn be done to address the herder-farmer crises. Since ystrday, a few more ppl have askd me abt the National Livestock Transformation Plan #NLTP. Here's a little more....
The #NLTP process began in 2016 led by @AuduOgbeh's Fed Ministry of Agriculture & with support from the Vice-President, @ProfOsinbajo, who chairs the National Economic Council (NEC). The NEC, in turn, includes all state governors in its members.
The struture & process was inclusive. Consultations took place at state & zonal levels, culminating in a national conference 11-15 Sept 2017 in Abuja with over 770 participants. The National Conference adopted a report which was transmitted to @AuduOgbeh in December 2017

"What can I do to help the children at the border?"

To all of you who've tagged/messaged/texted me over the past few days: I'm humbled by your vote of confidence. I'm just a practitioner/advocate, but happy to offer some concrete steps. #CloseTheCampsNOW

Some context first:
1. Stop pointing out that these cruel practices aren't new. The takeaway isn't Obama was bad or Trump is worse. It's that we're fighting an entrenched system that feeds on detention. Trump didn't build the machine; his administration hasn't shown much aptitude in using it.
2. Total deportation numbers are down from Obama's era. This is a combination of incompetence from this administration, and (take a bow, y'all) "The Resistance," less cooperation with ICE, more legal challenges, and people just showing up.

“We’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess

(1) The person who killed the female LEO in Davis, California filed numerous complaints with police - which echoed the statements of US Diplomats in Cuba & China.

"Targeted with dog-whistle-like" technology which disturbed hearing & cognition.

Unfortunately, the female ....
(2) officer was targeted by the citizen who felt that Davis, California police were responsible for the #Sonic Weapons attack.

He was a victim of #TheProgram - run thru #ThreatFusionCenters - and the officer was the unfortunate victim of his response to #DHS #FBI #JTTF ....
(3) extrajudicial targeting.

From her photos she looked like a really nice person who had a lot to offer her community as a #LEO.

The federally-funded #NoDueProcess #PoliticalTargeting by rogue federal employees has to stop.

It endangers the population & god-fearing #LEOs ....

Today I was reminded why I'm running for office.

I got off the phone today with a judge who denied my client, headed for Virginia, the chance to apply for asylum.

His case was a slam dunk, especially after a nationwide injunction issued earlier today.
Without quoting a single case, despite our 7pg brief explaining the law, the judge denied the case. My client's tears and trembling voice did not move him, because "lots of people come here from El Salvador with stories like yours, but that doesn't qualify you for asylum."
Yes, it does.

When gang members come and kill off two of your brothers, one after another, then beat and rape two of your sisters, both of whom make it to the US and were allowed to apply for asylum, then you have a claim, too.

(1) Forget the headlines from the lying, leaking, liberal MSM. Read the official statement here:

whitehouse.gov/briefings-stat…
(2) The MSM critiques of the President's statement focus on peripheral aspects like his use of exclamation marks. Reflect on that, against the incredibly serious points made about Iran, international terrorism, global oil prices etc.

Which side is talking about what MATTERS?
(3) Every point POTUS made was already known to me, & to you, if you've been following actual events & trends, instead of the MSM spin.

YES the murder of Mr Khashoggi was AWFUL & it is NOT condoned by Trump, the US, or me, or you.

A President must consider the whole picture.

Jeff Sessions is at it again.... tryijg to rewrite the immigration law into deportation law without Congress.

He's going to try to make asylum even harder by removing duress exceptions to the persecutor bar.

What does this mean?
To win asylum, you can't persecute anyone. That makes good sense, of course.

But what if the fear you have is that a persecutor - a gang, a warlord, a terrorist group - forced you to do something for them under threat of torture or death? That changes things, of course.
Under this decision, Sessions wants to try remove those duress exceptions.

So a prison guard forced to work and escapes would be sent back to his persecutors. It's one thing if he willingly did it. But disallowing people forced to do dirty work kills the spirit of asylum.

(1) #ConfirmKavanaugh updates thread #3 starting from 10/4/18.

A directory of my 10 Kavanaugh threads, and counting. (I know, I surprise myself sometimes.)

#JudgeKavanaugh will soon be #JusticeKavanaugh and the American Republic will be preserved. 🦅
(2) This WaPo reporter is incorrect about the vote being "scheduled for" Saturday. The earliest time a vote COULD be held is Saturday pm. There's no reason not to hold it on Sun/Mon IF we need Daines. I think we won't. Read my 5 tweets about him here:
(3) An excellent short explainer about the fact that Mitch has the votes:

(1) #PhotoThread for the #ConfirmKavanaugh process starting 10/3/18.
(2) Mitch laughing to himself about how absurd it is that he has to push his way through the crowd of reporters on 9/25/18.
(3) Sen Grassley is 85 years old. (Democrats have senators around that age, too.)

Today he had to hold onto a Capitol Police officer to reduce the risk of a reporter knocking him over. This has to stop. Senators must return to being able to walk around freely at work.

(1) Live tweeting the Senate tonight. @SenateMajLdr has to file cloture by a deadline tonight in order to hold the #ConfirmKavanaugh vote Saturday.

Watch the livestream and videos here:

c-span.org/congress/?cham…
(2) Cloture in the Senate is a procedural step that you can learn more about at the link below. The senate.gov website is the best resource for learning about Senate procedure and a lot more. Same for house.gov.

senate.gov/reference/glos…
(3) Watching live Senate floor proceedings is boring as hell, as they pass bills for naming Post Offices, & so on. But every now & then, they confirm a SCOTUS judge. And this time, they will affirm our great #BillOfRights #DueProcess & the hard-won #RuleOfLaw. Seriously. 🇺🇸🦅

(1) Dennis Ketterer, Julie Swetnick, & Democrat insanity. #Loco

As an ex-liberal woman born in 1970, I feel I can offer an informed perspective on the issues raised by Ketterer in his statement.

The issues are relevant to #MeToo #HimToo & everything.

judiciary.senate.gov/press/rep/rele…
(2) Ketterer writes as a man who carries immense guilt for having had secret extramarital sexual relations with Swetnick 25 years ago.

His statement is full of comments about it, but it's not the main issue. His status as a 9yo male child sex abuse survivor will be ignored.
(3) Today's Dems are ABSOLUTELY fixated on sexual crimes that are male on female.

To the exclusion of every other type of sex crime.

I know many men who have been sexually abused by a woman, or a man, in adulthood, or childhood. I know many male domestic abuse survivors.

(1) Here's a multimedia thread about the Kavanaugh hearing on 9/27/18. The body language of our opponents is so obvious it takes no professional skill to read it.

Photos and videos that support my opinion follow.

#ConfirmKavanaugh #ProsecuteFeinstein #RuleOfLaw #BillOfRights
(2) After preparing the photos I will add to this thread, I noticed this video that was published today. "Bombard" is an outstanding body language analyst & has done several videos re the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

A must watch:

bombardsbodylanguage.com/2018/09/30/bod…
(3) This is also a must watch. I had already formed the same view of Ford's testimony before I saw this video. Ford is a faker and tried to use a "little girl" voice & body language to MANIPULATE us all.

I DO NOT tolerate manipulators. Female, or male.

(1) My new #Kavanaugh thread, starting 9/28/18.

Long 9/22/18 thread:

Short 7/9/18 thread:

🦅"What is right will eventually triumph" -Reagan🇺🇸

#WomenForKavanaugh #WomenForTrump #VoteGOP #WalkAway
(2) So things have been clear as mud for a few hours. I will attempt to explain what I think is happening. I am not worried about eventually winning this thing. Not at all.

(3) The FBI is merely updating the file. It is not investigating a crime, bc no one has provided a date, time, place, or ANY substantiating or corroborating evidence. We already know that Ford's 4 supposed witnesses deny her *claims*.

Please remember: A claim is just a claim.

Dimms and their PR arm, the media, are handing Trump an unlimited amount of time to talk about #ConfirmKavanaugh and all the associated political issues, going back decades.

That's why I call them the Dimms.

#TrumpPressConference. Democrat #ConJob #ConArtists
Jim Acosta LOL
IMO the main reason Trump scheduled this press conference was to use it as his opportunity to speak about Kavanaugh and the whole situation. He is so smart. They are so dumb.

Watching this, I could cry tears of joy. What a blessing this President is to America. #MAGA

I couldn't even tweet last night. My heart breaks 💔for Judge Kavanaugh, his wife and his daughters. The fact that we continue to hear the Democrats say HE needs to prove his innocence is infuriating.
Dems bellow Trump IS attacking our institutions, as they work to abolish one of America's most important and basic foundations -the right to #dueprocess . This is 1 thing which makes us different from a #BananaRepublic As we know, Dems attack others for things THEY are guilty of
Democrats are actively subverting our Constitution, in the open and proudly. This will be one of the things that dooms them. #ConfirmKavanaugh

Alan Dershowitz: Christine Blasey Ford ‘has to testify’ washex.am/2QMlcJl
“She has to testify,” Dershowitz said. “As far as the FBI investigation is concerned, don’t count on that. There is not going to be very much the FBI can do... it is not an alleged federal crime. Second, the FBI doesn’t make credibility judgments.”
“I think she has to show up on Monday,” Dershowitz said. “If she doesn't show up on Monday, she has violated his core right to confront his accuser.” #DueProcess

Story re Vote Leave/BeLeave ads is wrong. The ads were never requested by VL/BL & never ran. That's why they're in the 0-999 impressions box. Actual number was zero. Both Facebook (link, p3) and AIQ (attached) said this to the DCMS select committee in May
parliament.uk/documents/comm…
Incidentally, I've been told that the DCMS select committee refused to publish AIQ's letter, so it's yet another example of a group of people conducting an "impartial investigation" but only listening to one side of the story... #DueProcess
Also, I wonder when Damian Collins is going to ask his wife, Sarah Richardson (2nd from the left), to give evidence to his Committee? She worked for ConservativesIN, so might know about the 7:30am phone calls which StrongerIN had to coordinate and agree lines to take

If Sessions was really interested in unclogging court dockets, he'd focus on identifying fraudulent cases instead of gutting protections for deserving people.

Don't drink his Kool-Aid. This is about exclusion and nodding to his white nationalist base.
Similarly, 45 campaigned on stopping illegal immigration, but with the #MuslimBan and #DACA and #TPS revocations, and support for gutting #familyimmigration, the people he's going after are people authorized to be here. People with valid status.
Somehow, he said #DACA was unconstitutional, but when he unilaterally overrules an agency like the Board of Immigration Appeals, that's ok.

Hypocrite much?
