1. And now I'm going to tell a story. Another false flag. This time is to force @POTUS not to take the US army out of #Syria.
They already have a lot of experience (8 years) to make chemical attacks to accuse the Syrian government.
OH, and they even have a manual.🧐😲🤨
@RandPaul
2. ISIS terrorist? 😲Seriously?🤨 Have they investigated? 🤓And they already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

The NRA (falsely) vilifies this attempt to make communities safer by cherry picking and rewording this proposal.

Let me break it down for you.

#GunReform #NRABloodMoney #Enough #NRAIsATerroristOrg
The proposal includes a future ban on the sale of assault-style weapons.

These weapons are by no means necessary for self defense. They’re very well suited however for shooting up classrooms full of children.
The proposal also includes a “ban on common firearm accessories”.

Accessories such as bump stocks that alter a firearm to rapid fire has no place whatsoever in the hands of civilians.

I don’t care if it’s super common. There’s no excuse for possessing one. At all.

2). A meme was flown across Twitter over the past few months, coming to my attention again yesterday. I saved it so I could do this little investigation!
3.) According to this meme:
A. U.S. Immigration passed laws in accordance with the passing of the McCarran Walters Act of 1952., Revised & Re-Affirmed in 1965.

On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

📸 @TheAlexArbuckle
On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

On January 31, 2017—just 10 days after the March—we went back to DC to voice our outrage of the nomination of Jeff Sessions. We continued our call to #StopSessions for over one year after that.

1/Last night we and other local leaders of @MomsDemandAction, @WAGV,@Momtivist, @fialosangeles spoke with @KatieHill4CA about her quote in @NYTimes. We wanted to give Katie the opportunity to explain before we made a public statement. #CA25
nytimes.com/2018/11/09/us/…
2/We do appreciate that @KatieHill4CA took the time to listen to our concerns about the consequences of this quote. We'll allow Katie to better explain how this quote came about. #CA25
3/We want be clear that this order of sentences, however they came to print are uninformed and dangerous. We and so many LA-based activists worked tirelessly these past 2 years to get the #NRA out of #CA25 and that includes NRA talking points.

12 more parents have lost their children. Another community is traumatized. I have had #enough

I am DONE with @NRA telling me I can't talk about this. DONE accepting federal limits on #research

And I know you are, too.

This is what you can do:
nyti.ms/2DaBzLG
1. Share your stories. After #Parkland, people across the country told about the horrors they had seen as #Docs4GunSense. Stories matter. This is not a glamorous movie. These injuries are REAL LIFE. This us OUR LANE.

2. Talk about guns. Talk about guns with gun owners and non gun owners. We are on the same side. Create consensus. Want some tips? Listen to me and @ERdisasterdoc - try it out for size.

*THREAD* for the first time in ~10 months I read my sister’s story, in her words, of what happened in Las Vegas 10/1/17. I still can’t read it without breaking down but this election is too important to not share her experience. @shannonrwatts @MomsDemand @Everytown 1/

OMFG AT LEAST 7 DEAD IN PITTSBURGH SYNAGOGUE. This is happening!! My parents survived the Holocaust, and Americans are willfully repeating the hate and demagoguery that led to the worst atrocities in modern history. WAKE TF UP. Trump's far-right extremists are killing our country
Now a Synagogue. What did ppl expect? Demagogue POTUS goes around the country spewing hate every day. Says neo-Nazis are fine people. Attacks Soros, "globalists". Anti-Semitism is NOT BOTH SIDES. Jews must dump Trump & enabling Republican cowards. They are the danger. #Pittsburgh
>>REPUBLICAN leader @kevinomccarthy, California-23, stoking anti-Semitism with a propaganda tweet about Soros, Steyer & Bloomberg? He deleted it after today's horrific shooting at Pittsburgh Synagogue. Guess he knows inciting hate crimes for votes is a bad look. #ENOUGH #VOTEBLUE

Kavanaugh's best buddy from high school, Mark Judge has written extensively about a life of binge drinking, blackouts & assaults on women

Judge Kozinski was Kavanaugh's mentor. He resigned in 2017 after articles in the Washington Post exposed years of sexual harassment

#ENOUGH
What is this woman's name?

Mark Judge, “I tried to make it with a bridesmaid - please tell me I didn’t hurt her.”

Denny reassured Judge that he didn't hurt her, though he had made a “serious lunge”

Friends pulled him off her & got him out of the bar

theintercept.com/2018/09/22/mar…
About Kavanaugh's mentor.

"Kozinski exposed us to this sort of material almost every day of the clerkship. The only way that Kavanaugh could not recall any comments about sexual matters would be if he had amnesia about the clerkship in its entirety."

Every single time there's a horrifying story about a Border Patrol agent, I feel it: about midline, just below my xiphoid process, I feel a fullness; literal pain.

Always, half of me hopes it's him—the man who raped me. He grew up to be a Marine. A cop. A US Border Patrol agent.
If it's him, the first half thinks, maybe whomever else he's hurt will have justice. Maybe it'll finally end.

It'll never end.

Every time a story like this breaks, the other half of me hopes I was wrong. I'm not.

My story wasn't enough. I came forward too late.

Just me.

One.
When I came forward, I was treated with respect—and belief. Validation.

It still wasn't enough to heal me. And now there's a scar—about midline, just below my xiphoid process.

This Border Patrol agent is not my rapist. He's theirs. They're dead.

How many will it take?

It’s the 8th day of the school year & I just received a call from my daughters high school informing me they arrested a child with a loaded 9mm gun on campus this morning. I am now standing in my kitchen sobbing.

I should not have to live like this.
@MomsDemand
My child should not have to live like this.

Children, actual children, should not have access to guns!

This is why I am involved with @MomsDemand. I am sick of this kind of bullshit!
This should not be normal!

I’ll continue to do this work for the safety & well being of my family & children and the safety & well being of everybody else’s family & children.

Even if you’re on the other side of the gun issue, I don’t want you to live like this either! #Enough

(1) Pedophilia in Hollywood is not new.

In an amazing book, "Selected by Extraterrestrials," by the late Bill Thompkins, shared a story of pedophilia happening in Hollywood in the 1950s.

High school-aged kids were having sex with 1st graders, and older.

Teacher's assistants...
(2)... were also having sex with kids of all school grades.

Teachers, too.

Pedophilia in Hollywood is multi-generational.

Grown ups abused, in turn, abused.

Father ~ son ~ grandson, etc.

Some of today's Hollywood kids are 4th generation in the Hollywood Pedo Culture ("HPC").
(3) The HPC was encouraged by, supported by and cultivated by the culture of #Democrats, #Marxists, #Progressives, #Socialists, #Globalists, etc.

They did unthinkable crimes with #children.

REALLY UNTHINKABLE, but if we are to #STOP this problem you HAVE to think about this.

I know Silver Lake well & I have been to this Trader Joe's.

It's small & the shopping isles are a bit narrow.

I can only imagine the panic that customers & employees are feeling at this moment.

Sending good thoughts for a safe & peaceful resolution.

It's been 2 hours already.

On this day two years ago, I joined dozens of my colleagues at a sit in on the House Floor to protest Congress’ failure to address gun violence
Since the House sit in, we’ve introduced bill after bill in Congress to finally address this epidemic—including bills to expand background checks & ban assault weapons—& the American people have spoken loud & clear through protests like #MarchForOurLives
But GOP leaders in Congress have refused to act as more and more mass shootings have taken more and more innocent lives #Enough

Our country desperately needs #GunReformNow. It’s proven that states with stricter gun laws have far less death by firearm. Read this. We need to discuss what specifically needs to be done to reduce the death toll. #Enough nytimes.com/interactive/20…
For the record, I do not think we need to ban all guns, or repeal 2A. We can pass effective and sensible #GunReform without being extreme.
But it is clear that more firearm laws equals less death by firearms. Those of us that are advocating for #GunReform need to get on the same page, be sending the same message. So let’s come up with some aspects that we can all agree on.

I want everyone to look at this chart.

#GUNVIOLENCE by root cause.

Light blue is #SUICIDE.

Bright yellow is targeted homicide includes both domestic violence and crimes where shooter knows victim .

Does this surprise you? Doctors must educate/dispel falsehoods. #enough

My Dad was shot & killed in 1991. His life was stolen. It left me parentless at the age of 19. I've been volunteering w/ @MomsDemand since its inception 5 yrs ago. This work is grueling, but I (like so many others) are compelled...
...to do this work because I simply have no choice. Sitting on the sidelines is not an option. The person who murdered my Dad will be released from prison in 1 1/2 years -- and could buy a gun w/o a bg check in a private sale....
...bg checks are not required in Missouri (where I live) --- or federally because Rs thwarted the Manchin-Toomey bg check bill after Sandy Hook. When they closed the door on us, we took this battle to the states....

MARCO RUBIO’s HYPOTHESIS: Those against gun bans “want to prevent mass shootings, too. They view banning guns as an infringement on the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens that ultimately will not prevent these tragedies.”.
This is called the Scientific Method. To test his hypothesis (which means millions of lives), research is required.
RESEARCH BIAS; Rubio has an A+ rating from the gun rights group for supporting NRA-friendly legislation. According to the New York Times, he has received $3.3 million from the group. (Research bias,performing the research influence the results to portray a certain outcome.)

We've been listening to the right, the NRA, to Fox News angrily scream for decades.
And we let it go.
Or took the high road.
What's great about people like @Emma4Change, @davidhogg111 and the #Parkland students... is they are voicing THEIR anger.
/1
nyp.st/2FZg7fg
They won't be shouted down by Wayne or Tucker or Rick or internet trolls and they're not going to pretend they're not pissed off.
That was OUR mistake.
WE assumed dead kids would make people step back and be civil.
The generation born after Columbine has had #Enough. /2
Somebody needs to be screaming back, and I'm glad it's students who want a safer future.
Let them lead.
Let them lead LOUDLY.
Let them lead by example.
That's what's freaking the gun lobby out right now.
The usual tactics aren't working.
