1/ I've been connecting some dots & thought I'd share
For the last week I've been feeling as though we'll see Trump not only Impeached but that the Senate WILL vote to remove Trump
I HATE Trump so I thought I'd be excited by this but I'm too focused on what may be coming next...
2/ First I trust Giuliani as far as I can throw him.
Speaking of throwing...when I look at how Rudy's 'helping' Trump its as if he's throwing Trump under the bus.
It makes me wonder, is Rudy sabotaging Trump?
I was surprised to learn that Trump may not actually be paying Rudy🤔
3/ Rudy's in a difficult divorce & his wife's divorce lawyer claims Rudy's working for free & actually losing money on Trumps travel🤔
NOBODY believes Rudy's working out of the goodness of his❤️
Rudy's wife thinks he's hiding money
So do I
But is he hiding💰or who he works for???

Indexing capital gains to inflation. Who knew those five words could make me so angry? But I finally was able to put my finger on where my low simmer of anger all day has come from...Surprise surprise, it's from Donald Trump. Again. Let me explain. (1/n)
Yesterday, Donald Trump proposed cutting taxes – for the rich – by indexing capital gains to inflation. And it's not the first time he's floated the idea. Why is it an idea that is sticking around? What does it mean?… (2/n)
Let's start with what "capital gains" are: They are the profits that investors make on assets like stocks & bonds. Say you bought a stock for $10k in 2009 and you sell it for $50k in 2019. Your capital gains is $40k and you are taxed on that $40k. (3/n)

I really don't think ppl understand the crisis trump's trade war has caused. Even if we elect a dem in 2020 the market share these farmers and other businesses have lost will likely be permanent. It will be up to a dem pres to tell em the hard truth and to try to find a solution.
trump has not only LOST his trade war he's killed entire markets for farmers and businesses for decades and decades to come. China has found other suppliers (Russia for example) and those new deals are likely to be in place for decades.
If you think it's bad for farmers NOW, wait until a dem pres has to clean up trump's trade war mess after he's deported all the migrants and US farmers and businesses have to compete with other countries who are using slave labor to grow those soybeans they are shipping to China

My friend @AdyBarkan is a hero not just to me, but to everyone whose health care he’s fought for. When the #GOPTaxScam was poised to cut Medicare—a program that millions of Americans rely on—Ady fought back hard. His story reminds us: We need #MedicareForAll.
Insurance companies sucked $23 billion out of our health care system last year. They profited on the backs of people like @AdyBarkan. Unfortunately, there are so many other stories like his. #DemDebate…
One third of donations made through @gofundme go towards helping people pay for health care—including plenty of families who have health insurance and still get hit with crushing medical bills. The system is broken. #DemDebate…

Infowars host calls for lynching of Obama

We know Putin/Trump/TOC hate Obama & HRC & the Bushes

QAnon hates &vilifies them by projecting the crines committed by TOC on them.

Ergo Putin & his enablers’ goal is to flip the script re TrumpRussia collusion

Accusing the NYT of ‘Treason,’ Trump Crosses a Line

The Founders considered it the gravest of crimes.

He’s gone from misrepresenting our biz, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues.

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"

"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

@CNN REALLY??? You let @ScottJenningsKY who worked for @senatemajldr McConnell write an article blaming it on @BarackObama???
Shame on you @CNN
& to @ScottJenningsKY #WeThePeople KNOW EXACTLY what Mitch did!!
He sold his country out TWICE! 1st he NOT...…
ONLY REFUSED to issue a joint statement like @BarackObama asked him to, he THREATENED @BarackObama that if he made a statement to the American people about Russia/Putin interfering that he (McConnell) would accuse @BarackObama of interfering in the election! 2nd) McConnell ....
OBVIOUSLY had a quid pro quo (you wash my back, I'll wash your's) agreement with Deripaska that @senatemajldr McConnell would push @SenateGOP into letting @realDonaldTrump lift sanctions on him if he (Deripaska) would open an aluminum factory in Kentucky!!!
McConnell either ...

REMINDER: this year is the first year Americans file their taxes after Republicans in complete control of Washington rammed through the #GOPTaxScam.

Since then, several things have happened. #TaxDay
🚫 Manufacturers closed plants to ship jobs overseas.

🚫 Big corporations paid zero in taxes while ordinary, hard-working people got slapped with a tax hike.

🚫 Trump is actively pushing to gut of over $2 trillion from Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
Meanwhile, Trump can't seem to get his story straight about why he refuses to release his taxes. Show us the tax returns. #WhatsInYourReturn?

Happy Tax Day! How are you feeling about Republicans’ big tax cut for the rich? Seeing a big boost in your bank account? Yeah, we didn’t think so. #TaxDay #GOPTaxScam

periodic reminder that Republicans controlled all three branches of federal government for two full years and they did NOTHING to fix our immigration & asylum laws but GOP did have time to give huge tax cuts to big corporations who now receive hundreds of millions in tax rebates.

😡Annoyed Thread😡

The #GOPTaxScam is the reason why some people need to pay attention. The amount of tweets we sent out saying, “call your congress.” People have to get involved. There are places you can go that will even give you a script when calling local congress.
I have noticed that my info tweets are the least liked and retweeted and get extremely low impressions. It’s really frustrating as we are meant to be activists trying to get things done. I joined Twitter in 2016 as the Resistance to help people to get involved.
But now it’s become a place of ridiculous FBR parties. Getting as many followers in a least amount of time. 1000 tweets and 80K followers. We tweeted and tweeted about how people were pretending to be Resistance and using these parties. Yet they are still going on. These are not

(THREAD) Donald Trump promised he'd put #AmericaFirst. The past 2 years have proven that his agenda is #MeFirst. Rather than #DrainTheSwamp, he filled his cabinet with elitist & grifting billionaires who have capitalized on their office at taxpayer expense. #TrumpCorruption
No one has profited more from the Trump Administration than the Trump Family. In violation of the Constitution's Emoluments Clause, Trump retains ownership interests in his family business while he's in office. This is unprecedented. #AmericaFirst
When Jimmy Carter won the Presidency, he sold his family peanut farm in order to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest. Every modern President has put their assets in a blind trust - every President except for Trump. #AmericaFirst

Where to even start

First, you’re not speaker any more

And your party’s “ideas” were so soundly rejected during the midterm elections that you lost an historic 40 seats

But let’s go a little deeper. Let’s look at Trump’s “accomplishments” and see if we are “better off”
With Trump and the GOP gutting the ACA and fighting Medicaid expansion, people who pay for healthcare are certainly #NotBetterOff

But healthcare and drug companies, and people that own them, sure are. Just ask your friend Chris Collins.…
The millions adversely affected by the #GOPTaxScam are #NotBetterOff

On the other hand, all the companies and wealthy CEOs who used the tax cut to buy back stocks and become richer were probably thrilled…

Here's a partial list of @realdonaldtrump's broken promises dating back to his announcement he was running for @POTUS. Many of these promises were made to set him apart from other @GOP candidates & get support from his "base"...
...Trump promised to fully finance his own campaign. He didn't. In fact it was almost entirely funded by PACs, SuperPacs, corporate & elite 1% donations. Some indication of foreign contributions. Only money he spent went to compensate Cohen for paying off porn stars...
...He would build a 30 to 60 foot concrete wall & Mexico would pay for all of it. Not a single inch of new wall has been built. Further, he's scaling down to "barriers" & finally he's taking money from U.S. taxpayers already slotted to the Military, Disaster Relief & Medicaid...

#MadamSpeaker and House Dems passing #HR1 to restore integrity to government and to our elections is what we all worked for last election! 🌊💪

From @repjohnlewis to the stellar Freshman class, House Dems will never stop fighting for our democracy and #ForThePeople!

On the Capitol steps, Rep. @ZoeLofgren exposed the great contrast between #HR1 with a Democratic majority 💥voting rights & ethics #ForThePeople💥and the last Congress, when Republicans rammed thru their #GOPTaxScam👎 – written by big corporate lobbyists – as their #1 priority!
#MadamSpeaker: “I thank all of our freshmen – every single 1 of them – for the message they delivered on the campaign trail & for the determination they have brought to this Congress… Today, we are honoring the people’s trust as we pass our transformative #HR1.”
