Twitter says it's my anniversary on here! Celebrate with a tweet. . .How about you give me my account back You suspended Several Months Ago with No reason except that I am on the Right Side of Twitter!

It's like they're taunting me! @realDonaldTrump #Qanon, #censorship
2. The nerve of Twitter! We know what you're up to Dorsey!
Remember this article Q linked to? From Tech Crunch,
Twitter says bug may have exposed some direct messages to third-party developers. . .I believe we know Who the bug is and What is behind it! Did you have help from
3. your buddy Brin? Remember when WSJ reported this? Google opted not to disclose to users its discovery of a bug that gave outside developers access to private data. It found no evidence of misuse. Nice try but we know about the confiscated emails, logins, #censorship

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

I welcome Kristinn #Hrafnsson’s (@khrafnsson) appointment as @WikiLeaks’ Editor-in-Chief. The @USAgov’s campaign of dezinfomatsia, lawfare, & extortionate tactics — as well as the @govUK’s flagrant violations of international #HumanRights law — will clearly not impede WL’s work.
#Hrafnsson’s appointment sends a CLEAR SIGNAL to @TheJusticeDept: #WikiLeaks (& its fans) won’t back down, nor will WL’s mission be nullified by @CPSUK continuing to hold #Assange hostage. These terrorist tactics are beyond the scope of acceptable state behavior. #FreeAssange.
… moreover, this dumb & counterproductive campaign against #WikiLeaks — for daring to expose widespread, systemic corruption in the #DNC, inc. flagrant campaign finance violations — sets an anti-press precedent when we should be pressing #China on #FreeSpeech & #PressFreedoms.

As a woman I am sick of women not owning their part & responsibility. If you get insanely drunk & black out at parties, you bear some responsibility for what happens to you. If you are drunk or high & behave overtly sexual, to men you just met you put yourself in danger.
Let's face it young women in college act incredibly stupid and put themselves in a lot of danger. Does that mean that they asked to be assaulted no? But would they have been assaulted had they not put themselves in situations that made it much more likely that they would be, YES!
Don't go to a club, introduce yourself to a guy, shake hands, start dancing, rub your booty in his crotch, & then accuse the guy of toxic masculinity. Don't send out mixed messages! It is your responsibility to take care of yourself.

1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

I REALLY hate having to repeat myself but I'm watching @WarPlanPurple sperging the fuck out with lolsuits (I say this from a place of kindness Sargon, I don't want to destroy you, I want to see you course correct) & an intervention is neccessary

Let's talk about spin control

Word to the wise

If you build up a history online and then heavily associate yourself with a political party you WILL get caught up in the oppo research dragnet

You can either complain about it and start firing off lawsuits, or you can see it for the opening it presents...

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

On the one hand, @JulianAssange is being tortured in the heart of Europe's media capital because his intrepid public interest publishing has stoked the ire of the world's most powerful government, its allies & their nebulous network of intelligence organs.#FreeAssange @AssangeMrs
1. On the other, there appears to be a callous cross-border conspiracy, bolstered by Ecuadorean, UK & Australian complicity, to force him out of the embassy where he sought refuge as a political refugee over his concerns relating to US extradition. #FreeAssange #NoExtradition
2. As a result of this cruel ploy, @JulianAssange, an award-winning journalist & editor, is effectively being tortured in the heart of London as the majority of prominent UK human rights organisations & mainstream media outlets remain silent. #FreeAssange @AssangeMrs

When did collusion become a bad thing? Remember when the US colluded with France to win our Independence from England? #maga
Assume for a moment that #Trump colluded with Russian allies to win an election. The operative word is win. Either way he still WON. No one cheated. Every vote counted. Russians didn’t vote. No one has suggested votes weren’t real and legal. So what is the crime? Memes?

#maga
If the Intelligence Community could have taken down #POTUS they would’ve done it via the year long House investigation. They would’ve given evidence against Trump to the oversight committee. Right? Its the #IC - they have everything. The @NSAGov has every text, call and email.

Another adds: #AltRight are nationalistic, xenophobic & prepared to suborn democracy to achieve their aims

Chair @PeterPeteryork takes these on & asks what links these trends across USA & Europe

IT'S HAPPENING
#FreeSpeech
That's from Judge Kahn's decision against Twitter's Motion to Dismiss. Holds that reinstating banned accounts - and the plaintiffs have filed on behalf of ALL Twitter accounts, not just theirs - is a question of "vindicat(ing) the public's interest in the widest possible speech".

THREAD: Media is using Soviet style propaganda

One of the most powerful forms of propaganda is demoralization. Soviet elites were encouraged to flaunt the hypocritical double standard that they lived under - that they were not subject to the same "subjective" laws of the People
The #AwanBrothers scandal, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, Comey, et al., jihadi terrorists compound, even the Kate Stenlie affair - average citizens, even @TuckerCarlson points out the obvious double standard that the politically protected live under as opposed to We The People
all these seemingly unconnected media incidents are used by propagandists like @CNN @brianstelter @ChrisCuomo to flaunt the hypocritical double standard that the politically protected live under

They are used - weaponized - to demoralize We The People

Perhaps, Mr @JohnBrennan you are aware of Executive Order 12968 signed by @BillClinton August 2, 1995 - that defines all US policies regarding security clearances. And in it I’m sure you are aware of the dozens of paragraphs justifying the removel of your own security clearance.
@JohnBrennan @BillClinton Scrubbing security clearances is part of the job when the nation transitions from one president to another. This isnt about #FreeSpeech as all security clearance is based on an individual’s “Need to know.”

Was it about #FreeSpeech when Obama did it? #maga
@JohnBrennan @BillClinton EO 12698

Provides guidelines for both granting and removing a person’s security clearance.

Most US Depts including Homeland Security and DOD and DOJ have an employment clause. As in, when you’re fired you lose access to classified information automatically.

So much for free speech and its passionate supporters thehindu.com/todays-paper/t…

#PondyLitFest
Apparently, to conduct or participate in #PondyLitFest you need to be ideologically aligned to the Left — this, from a gaggle of writers (yes WRITERS!) calling themselves, hold your breath, ‘progressive’ m.timesofindia.com/city/puducherr…
Lieutenant Governor @thekiranbedi should ensure that there is no space for such festival (#PondyLitFest) in Puducherry, demand Progressive Writers Association — you read that right: ‘PROGRESSIVE’

Last night after I retweeted a few things my account locked up. I asked Twitter support for help.
After that I changed my password. I still could not tweet, retweet, or like anything...
Then the wierdest thing happened...I lost all people I was following.

Current US law states in order to restrict or punish speech it must meet the following tests:
• the speaker must have the intention to incite unlawful action, AND,
• there must be the likelihood that unlawful action will be the consequence of said speech.
⤵️ #FreeSpeech
⤴️Only speech which poses "imminent danger" illegal
— time & again, courts both liberal & conservative tend to rule in favor of speech rather than it's restriction. The burden of proving intent to, & reasonable expectation of inciting, unlawful behavior is high.
⤵️#FreeSpeech
⤴️Only speech which poses "imminent danger" illegal
— it's ironic that universities/academics are leading the charge against "hate speech", given should they succeed, protests against ANYTHING will be illegal.

Please read this thread @davies_will which addresses your @gdnlongread @guardian: “The #freespeech panic: how the right concocted a crisis” bit.ly/2LY5AQ7. The idea that #FreeSpeech is now a "conservative issue" is sprinting to become the new dogma. 1/10
In the process, the article lumps together a cast of characters including @sapinker, @NAChristakis, @RichardDawkins, @SamHarrisOrg, & @JonHaidt — none of whom are conservative — as if they are part of an epic right-wing ruse. 2/10
It’s part of the trend over the last few months in which people 1) label concerns about #freespeech “conservative,” 2) dismiss these concerns & then 3) explain what is “really going on” with the already-dubbed-fake concern that they concluded is mostly “naked self-interest” 3/10

LISTEN to what Sessions said before the #LockHerUp chants started.

The Left seized on the interruption to his speech, only drawing attention to them being #CrybabySoreLoser #Snowflakes with post election therapy to college students. 😂😭❄️🍼😾🖍️ 

I'm still looking for a video of the full speech or at least the part after the interruption but I think it's HYSTERICAL comedy gold that the Left has drawn attention to a speech on #1A #FreeSpeech #CampusSpeech. Excerpts to follow.

JFC.... Rep @keithellison, a member of our CONGRESS and former #DNC leader, who is now RUNNING FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL in #Minnesota is literally trying to get BOOKS BANNED on @Amazon based on what alt-left hate group SPLC thinks is "hate speech."
The day @Amazon agrees to BANNING BOOKS based on this hateful group who has maliciously and falsely slandered people is the day I will cancel my Prime membership and never order from them again.

RIP A. Daniel Feldman

I met him and we talked about his career and our First Amendment lawyering experiences when his granddaughter married my son.

He didn't let on how accomplished he really was.

I changed my profile pic & the last line in my bio

Do not fear I have lost my focus or my desire to fight for the side of Right

But I'm going to shift tactics a bit because the Left has given us an opening

They have lost their ever-lovin' minds & are showing it
My bio was
Former Special Forces "so expect precision fire"
I did that to rile up PC speech bullies who say you can't use scary metaphors

I'm not caving a bit on the #FreeSpeech front
If anything I'm doubling down
But I'm going to change my tone a bit

From wicked to mocking
For the Right to prevail
We must draw our side together
By reconciling w/ folks who agree on issues but don't love #Trump
&
Reaching out to folks who used to be Democrats
Until their party went full #FeelTheBern

They don't want to be socialist America-haters
