Spread word: my student & friend #Tavares Calloway was coerced to confess to 5 murders after #Miami police told him his own family was in immediate danger unless he falsely confessed to help them flush out the real killer. He was sentenced to die.…
#Tavares was 19 when 11 officers interrogated him for 18 hours w/o an attorney present. Police admitted to repeatedly lying to him, saying they'd found his DNA/fingerprints at the scene.

In fact, NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OR EYEWITNESS ties him to the crime.
The SOLE EVIDENCE against #Tavares is a confession he signed when police told him his family was in grave & imminent danger. After 18 hrs of questioning, police knew he was protective of his family & deeply devout.

Leaders of the #ProudBoys are telling troops in the lead up to a far-Right rally in #Portland on August 17th, ironically against "domestic terrorism," to "tone down" threats of violence + murder on social media in wake of visit from the FBI. A thread.…
After a month of making clear + direct threats of violence + even murder against the public in #Portland, leaders of the #ProudBoys in #Florida are now urging those on the far-Right to "tone down" rhetoric online following a string of mass shootings. Organizer Joe Biggs explains:
#ProudBoys claim to be rallying in #Portland against "domestic terrorism" of antifascists, who have killed no one. Since Unite the Right, which the Proud Boys helped organize and attended, 73 people have been killed by white nationalists + the far-Right.…

Demand leader of 'Latinos for Trump' Bianca Garcia @FabMAGADiva, denounce + fire Enrique Tarrio, leader of violent far-Right group the #ProudBoys who attended the neo-Nazi rally 'Unite the Right' in Charlottesville + is the current "Director" of Latinos for #Trump in #Florida.
@FabMAGADiva Tarrio attended Unite the Right as part of the Proud Boys "military wing," the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights. He can be seen wearing their "V" patch. FOAK was led by white nationalists Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman and Augustus Invictus, who was scheduled to speak at the rally.
@FabMAGADiva Tarrio, like rest of the #ProudBoys, celebrates and defends literal fascist violence. Here he is in #DC for the #DemandFreeSpeech rally, sporting the brand, RWDS, which stands for "Right Wing Death Squads." The same brand makes shirts celebrating the murderous dictator Pinochet.

Proud Boy leader Enrique Tarrio, who attended Unite the Right, works closely with Roger Stone + directs Latinos for Trump in #Florida, is behind the petition to label 'antifa' a 'domestic terrorist group,' which has been picked up by Ted Cruz + Trump.…
On Wednesday, Enrique's White House petition to label “Antifa a domestic terrorist organization” expired, failing to meet even half the requirement of gaining 100,000 signatures. H/T @jgcOCANADA
@jgcOCANADA Tarrio took credit for creating the petition over the Proud Boys' Telegram account, famously used to harass and coordinate campaigns against journalists, activists, and those critical of the far-Right group. The petition is also signed, ET. H/T @AntiFashGordon

🌴Amazing story about Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump in a dispute over the 515 Country Road Estate in Palm Beach, #Florida that Michael Wolff says Epstein saw first in his new book “Siege: Trump Under Fire.”

🌊Epstein invited Trump over to get some input on the swimming pool.
🐀But then Trump decided to steal the property from Epstein.

💰Epstein hadnt been worried since he didn’t think Trump had the money.

🇷🇺But then came Russia.
💣It seems Epstein & Trump knew a lot about each other’s secrets.

🧵1.1 THREAD—Why Did Jeffrey Epstein Get Such a Lenient Sentence?

*⃣ Part 1—Who is Jeffrey Epstein?
This thread comes after reading over 300 newspaper & magazine articles, law journals, court documents, more than 20 books, several films, videos & docs over the last several mos.
1.2 In light of Jeffrey Epstein's arrest on July 6, 2019 and denial of bail this week, this question becomes even more crucial. Why would federal prosecutors agree to protect Jeffrey Epstein with an unprecedented non-prosecution agreement?
1.3 Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, the man in charge of Epstein's "sweetheart deal" resigned last week.

Why? Over the "furor" of him making this plea deal with Epstein, supposedly.

🕵️‍♀️Throughout the last several months, I've been digging into the reasons why Jeffrey Epstein received the "sweetheart deal" of the century in 2008 from the U.S. Attorney's office in Southern #Florida, formerly headed by Alexander Acosta.

🕵️‍♂️The reasons are building up that Epstein was in possession of national security secrets & was likely tied to INSLAW, the biggest scandal most people have never heard of...

Why? Ed Meese, Dick Thornburgh, William Barr and John Bolton helped cover it up.
👉That's Part 1.

Stay tuned for Parts 2-6.

No surprise that a bunch of commies organized and hosted this "protest" at the ICE facility where they took down the US flag & raised the Mexican flag.

Looks like "International Socialist Collective" put it together and the US #Democrats support their agenda.
Here is their Twitter page:

Note that they also want to "destroy capitalism."

Sure looks like an #Antifa fist

@wdunlap “Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, #Trump dismissed his past appearances with #Epstein …Epstein’s personal little black book, leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him.”…
@wdunlap “But even beyond #Trump’s own words further up, there’s a good deal of evidence the two were friendly social acquaintances at least through the early 2000s”

“Trump called #Epstein twice in November 2004, according to message pads seized”

@wdunlap “Attorneys for #Epstein say he obtained a foreign #passport under an alias in 1980s to defend himself from potential kidnappers while traveling in the Middle East.

worried about perils he faced traveling there as ‘an affluent member of the Jewish faith’”…

"The Russian government sent more than $1.4 million to a Florida-based company (RM Broadcasting) airing Kremlin propaganda in the nation’s capital over the last two years, according to recent foreign agent registration records."

#Florida #Russia #Florussia
"Judge Rosenberg ruled that RM Broadcasting should be registered as a foreign agent under FARA due to its relationship with Rossiya Segodnya, the Russian government’s media enterprise that owns Sputnik International and was created by Putin to advance Russia’s interests abroad."
"RM Broadcasting reported being paid more than $1.4 million from November 2017 to June 2019 to air Sputnik 24 hours a day."

A #Florida @Hillsdale Barney charter school classical academy was accused of unethical behaviors that were reported to the state & district. In response to a district report, Hillsdale's provost asked school leaders to follow the district's recommendations or lose affiliation. /1
MCA's principal resigned, but admits no wrongdoing. Read the Principal's letter in @ndn article. The President of the Board admits no wrongdoing. /2
When leadership problems arise in public schools, districts can remove or replace principals. When district school board members don't govern well, voters can replace them. Neither can happen here. This is the reality of #schoolchoice with charter schools. /3

Good morning, Senator @KeithPerryFL, and #HappyFathersDay! My name is Ryan and I am a #PublicEd advocate living, learning, and teaching in #HCPS just south of you in the Tampa area. I read your op-ed in the @GainesvilleSun and would like to offer some additional perspective (1)
(2) and perhaps clarify why you are seeing so many negative op-eds about what you and your fellow legislators have wrought over the last 20 years (and especially the last 3-5). I will move through your op-ed paragraph by paragraph in the hopes of sharing additional data / studies
(3) First paragraph: to say that a "claim is completely false" is absurd, because we, the actual educators who are working with our students every single day, must live with the ramifications created by unfundated mandates as well as constant changes and disruptions from testing.

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4
