The worst part of these white and Latina GOP women saying these things is NOT ONCE did they offer concern about any victim of sexual assault.

The woman in the turtleneck, Lourdes, said she thought Kavanaugh had likely dumped Ford and she was getting back at him.

Awful.
Also, these aren't all just ladies off the street being asked these questions by @CNN. They are GOP operatives.

So this woman, Lourdes, who is floating the idea that Ford is a vengeful sociopath is actually working for the Republican Party.

🔥Internal @GOP poll shows Democrats up by 9 points on a generic ballot (7 pts = #FlipTheHouse). “Soft" GOP voters care more about Medicare/SS, veterans mental health services + reforming student loans than Trump agenda of tax cuts, border walls, ICE.😉

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
🤣LOL. @realDonaldTrump’s GASLIGHTING worked a bit too well.

Complacency among #GOP voters is tied directly to their trust in Trump. “They don’t believe Democrats will win the House. (Why should they believe the same pollsters who told them Hillary was going to be elected?)”🤣
This #poll shouldn’t make *any* of us complacent, but instead, should MOTIVATE us, b/c we now *know* that We the People *can* flip seats in DEEPLY red states (@DougJones in #AL) and districts (@ConorLambPA).

VOTE, so that we do this NATIONWIDE‼️🇺🇸

The @WSJ editorial board just dropped Tuesday's editorial.
It is searing.
They describe #ChristineBlaseyFord's discussion of the #Kavanaugh assault as "an effort to save a failing marriage."
It does not get better after that.

The #MeToo Kavanaugh Ambush wsj.com/articles/the-m…
.@WSJ asserts #AnitaHill was a liar, for good measure:

"If Republicans panic now their own voters will rightly be furious. They would be letting Democrats get away with the same dirty trick they tried and failed to pull off against #ClarenceThomas."
2/
That @WSJ is defending #KKavanaugh is no surprise;they're the nation's foremost white male bastion of late 19th c conservativism that recognizes few women or POC as worthy of discourse or inclusion. But dismissing Ford as a partisan"coaxed"to wound spotless Kavanaugh is false.

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies #CultureOfCorruption #Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
30,100: North Dakotans that would have lost health coverage by 2026 under the #GOP House-passed #Trumpcare bill./3 #ProtectOurCare #CultureOfCorruption #GOPGreed

Going through the 438 reps was far more time consuming, but I have a list for you and it will--or should--stun you.
1/

How often do reps vote with Trump projects.fivethirtyeight.com/congress-trump…
Among the top 10 most progressive, not a single rep is white.
1.@RepBonnie Watson Coleman
2.@RepBarbaraLee
3. @repjohnlewis
4.@RepYvetteClarke
5.@NydiaVelazquez
6.@keithellison
7.@RepGutierrez
8.@RepJayapal
9.@RepGrijalvaCS
10.@MaxineWaters

Stunning.
2/
The next ten after the top ten include women of all races and men of color. No white men.

White reps need to step left. As do some claiming progressive status like Tulsi Gabbard, who isn't in the top 50.

As things accelerate towards #TheGreatAwakening, it is important to remember what #QAnon said: our strength is in #unity. As a result try to build bridges and tear down walls which separate us from our fellow Americans. #WWG1WGA The end will not be for everyone. Trust the Plan
Those of us who have been following #QAnon from the beginning will have an important role to play in our local and digital communities. Not to gloat or belittle but to educate and inspire. This is not about the #GOP or #DNC, it is about addressing the darkness that affects us all
Going from Dark to Light is not simple or quick but it will change our way of life forever. It will pave the way for #disclosure of technologies and innovations that will improve the quality of life for all of #humanity. Try to reject selfishness and embrace service. #MAGA #QAnon

I'll say this clearly for you people in the back who just don't get it: I'll take a government full of establishment hacks over a fascist bigot threatening the existence of American democracy any day of the week. Hell, I'll fight for that "establishment" if it saves this country.
You want to make new law, pass progressive legislation, build a fairer country? Me too! First, save the system of laws by casting out this criminal regime. It's the whole ballgame. We will advance NOTHING till he's gone.
I have zero patience for all of your "well, Hitler was just a symptom of something larger" bullshit. Ride or walk, it's your choice. Do you even care? Is it all an intellectual exercise? Does this fucking BORE you?

No one who lived through the Bush2 admin, from the stolen 2000 election to the torture, war crimes, two wars we are STILL in, millions of maimed Americans, brutal attacks on women & #LGBT "misses" Bush.Stop saying this for cheap clicks just because you escaped being hurt by Bush.
Pretending the Bush/Cheney years were benign when literally 2 MILLION Americans have been wounded/maimed by the wars in #Afghanistan & #Iraq is #GOP disinformation.

Also, Bush began the #WarOnWomen.
Bush helped stack the #SCOTUS with far right judges. Bush attacked #LGBT folks.
"Trump makes me miss Bush" is a statement of extreme privilege. It means you weren't hurt by Bush's domestic policies that made some of us feel we might have to flee our own country.These glib takes dismiss damage done by #GOP prior to Trump and how GWB opened the door for Trump.

It is imperative we expose the ongoing #GOP narrative that uses Leader Nancy Pelosi as a lightening rod for misogynistic, ageist and partisan attacks and what motives and attitudes lie behind it. /1 #IStandWithNancy #GOPLies #DemocraticPrincipledLeadership
In order to get at that truth, it is vital for voters to meet Nancy Pelosi, understand her background, accomplishments and values as well as her vital importance to the Party of the People./2
Nancy Pelosi has consistently put her constituents first and foremost and as Speaker and Minority Leader she has served all Americans with the same commitment and intensity./3 #PrincipledDemocraticLeadership #IStandWithNancy

Dear Senator Graham: I am disappointed, but sadly not surprised by your response. Since the election of Donald Trump you have proven yourself to be a unreliable ally in the fight for our democracy.
Before the election you strongly condemned Mr. Trump for his poor behavior and unsuitability for the office of President. Unfortunately, you quickly changed your tune after a golf game.
I do not know and do not care what transpired during that game, but it is evident from your subsequent behavior that some discussion altered your opinion, converting you to be a Trump supporter, instead of a patriotic American, who had taken an oath to uphold the Constitution.

The murders of #ShannanWatts, Bella,4, Celeste ,3 and the unborn baby boy, Nico, are a devastating reminder that several thousand women are killed each year by #domesticviolence in America and the @WhiteHouse has never once tweeted about it.
According to the CDC and FBI, more than 2k women are killed each year in the U.S. by men. The majority of these killings are #domesticviolence, but there are also murders like that of #MollieTibbetts--women who are murdered by strangers.
Each year the number of women murdered in the US is higher.
#DomesticViolence remains largely unaddressed, under-reported and under-prosecuted, as the current suspension of #UrbanMeyer indicates.

#BREAKING

#MichaelCohen has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations: hush money payments to #KarenMcDougal and #StormyDaniels.

This is terrible news for Trump.
The allocution will be handed over to Congress and the #MuellerInvestigation.
#BREAKING
To be very clear, #MichaelCohen is now an admitted felon and cited Trump as his co-conspirator.

This could be turned over to Congress as a high crime and misdemeanor.

This is huge.
And what cannot be ignored is that #MichaelCohen served as Deputy Finance Chairman for the #RNC.

And Cohen just pleaded guilty to campaign finance crimes.

This implicates the party. This is no longer just about #MichaelCohen--it's about the #GOP.

how come we are spied on in every possible way (#5eyes, #InQTel & hundreds others) and everything is valid to you (& me), the average guy to court, to get conviction, to... fucking it, everything is legal.
But 'we have everything', except that everybody is
2- #MakingADeal because we need to collect evidence in 'whatever legal way'?
Are you fucking kidding me?
None of you have a problem with that?
3-More venting later...
4-That compound that 'we blew up', did Trump speak out against that? If yes, please link me to it. If not, why not? Aren't the 'white hats' in control now? Why are we hiding evidence?

THREAD: by now, many of you have seen posts or articles re: @defcon’s @VotingVillageDC, and the ease with which machines and websites were attacked and exploited. And now, THIS is happening....#unhackthevote #infosec #ElectionSecurity
For YEARS, advocates of election integrity have been pointing out these issues. This isn’t new. After 2000, the Help America Vote Act was passed to modernize our elections, first proposed by Robert Ney (R-OH). Signed into law by George W. Bush. So much for this theory:
At the same time, Bush’s @TheJusticeDept began an investigation into alleged #VoterFraud. Guess what it turned up? No masses of non-citizens voting, nothing that could come close to altering an election. nytimes.com/2007/04/12/was…

The @OMAROSA story today has several important facets, none of them risible.

This is a woman who was in Trump's inner circle and who had his ear.

Prior to him calling her a "low life" on Saturday, Trump lauded her and her work in various tweets and interview comments.
1/
Trump wants you to believe #Omarosa is a liar, but then there is the tape she played on @MeetThePress.

Which is evidentiary.

The #GOP and #RNC are concerned---they started an #OmarosaUnhinged hashtag and are busy tweeting about her, as are Trump's surrogates.

2/
#Omarosa isn't "unhinged." She's vengeful. Is she a liar? About some things, verifiably. About others, verifiably truthful.

That she was able to go all over Trump's White House recording people is a cause for grave concern.

It speaks to Trump's incompetence as a leader.

1. This is a good time to revisit the importance of due-diligence on social media, particularly as it relates to spheres of influence within political Twitter. In these times of chaos, anger and desperation, we are particularly vulnerable to misinformation.
2. The rallying cry of #TheResistance, increasing activism and growing civic involvement is a good thing. But, accepting the information presented by anyone with an #FBR or posting bias-confirming information is dangerous. As with any collective, beware of questionable actors.
3. It's a problem that's more complex than identifying bots and trolls, "chaos" agents and "deza" - the latter being designations easily weaponized and that should immediately trigger healthy skepticism. Particularly when the accuser has a history of using these labels.

I think the real question is "how do we create the means and foundation for the agenda," not the money to pay for it.

We always get money by taxing working class and middle class people.
That's how we pay for the two wars we've been in for over 15yrs.
The #healthcare industry employs millions of Americans.
In the only vision Bernie Sanders has ever presented, that somehow disappears and is replaced by something completely different....by magic. He has never had a plan for it or "breaking up the banks."
nydailynews.com/opinion/transc…
The most workable--and quick--plan we could get (if people vote in November and the Democrats regain the House)--is the #MedicareExtraForAll plan.

Getting people to give up their employer-paid insurance will be hard, but this could convince everyone.
