1) If any of you railing against #Qanon reads this thread, I’d love for you to respond. I’m curious why it’s so imperative people come to “realize” that Q is a LARP? Have you followed Q? If not, how can you be an expert on this phenomenon? @LisaMei62
2) You need to educate yourselves, because I’ve seen wrong information reported about Q, like that @tracybeanz was somehow involved. @Jackposobiec. If Q is a cult, as suggested by @ScottAdamsSays, don’t cults usually demand a certain criteria? #Qanon
3) If one diverts from a cult criteria, aren’t there usually repercussions? What exactly is Q demanding of “cult members?” Why is giving us information for research a bad thing? #Qanon
.@RepLouBarletta defends Republicans voting down additional spending for cybersecurity with pure disinformation: "What we found out in all this talk is that Russia wasn't able to interfere with our election... if they're not able to do it, why would you spend more money?
This is a big lie. As we’ve known since last December, the FBI’s investigation of Trump campaign began when they were informed campaign officials knew about Russian hacking months before any emails were published on the internet. Trump is gaslighting.
Robert Mueller is a lifelong Republican who was appointed FBI director by a Republican president and special counsel by a Republican deputy AG who was appointed to his position by Trump. #gaslighting
Mueller was appointed FBI director by George W Bush. Trump apparently thinks the fact he didn’t quit when Obama became president reflects his liberal bias.
Let's look at Leakers
Jeffrey A. Sterling, ex-CIA
John Kiriakou, ex-CIA
Donald Sachtleben, ex-FBI explosives expert
Stephen Kim, ex-State Department contractor
Thomas A. Drake, ex-NSA
Shamai Leibowitz, ex-FBI linguist
This is a lie. The investigation of Trump campaign began in July ‘16, after stolen DNC emails were published by WikiLeaks, & an Australian diplomat came forward to report Trump adviser George Papadopoulos told him months earlier that Trump campaign knew about hacks. #Gaslighting
This is a lie. The FISA warrant application didn’t try to hide that dossier originated in political research, & Carter Page had already left Trump campaign when first one was approved by a GOP-appointed judge in October 2016.
Page admitted on national TV yesterday that he has advised the Kremlin, and was privy to discussions about removing US sanctions during his trip to Moscow in July 2016 — while he also served as a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser
So I'm seeing a lot of folks bringing up Clinton and Obama with respect to Trump's latest #ExecutiveOrder. Setting aside the fact that doing so is blatant whataboutism, I want to talk about these assertions, because a lot of them are misconceptions.
First off - I see a lot of talk about how this is actually just enforcement of a law that Clinton signed in 1997. That is untrue on every front (except the year, I guess).
1997 refers to the settlement in the case Flores v. Reno. The settlement to this case established a number of conditions which the government was ordered to adhere to when detaining minors who had entered illegally.
PART 6 second thread on Gaslighting. Starting with tactic five of gaslighting. THEIR ACTIONS DONT MATCH THEIR WORDS. #Gaslighting
How many times have we heard no can fix this but Donald J Trump, or I’m for the little people, the forgotten people. Let’s talk about what he’s done for the forgotten people. nytimes.com/2017/12/17/us/…
On the campaign trail Trump called for Universal Health Care. 500 days into his term 45 is whining how John McCain’s thumb cost him repealing the ACA and ripping healthcare from millions. axios.com/trump-universa…
one of USA ramparts against isolation & a means to avoid wars; 7. worldwide US credibility, relevance & trustworthiness, even by staunch traditional allies, is at an all time low; 8. ppl whose only credentials are closeness to 45 are still in key positions & some have made wrong
