#Illinois @GovPritzker has resorted to tweeting @realDonaldTrump & @VP re: dangerous #CoronaVirus exposure nightmare underway at #OHareAirport because he can't get ANY help through normal lines of communication. This should send BIG warning bells to every state! #Trump #COVID19
#OHareAirport right now as #Illinois @GovPritzker is forced to tweet at Trump & Pence for desperately needed help. Thousands & thousands are packed in tight for many hours awaiting #COVID19 screening from CBP. Any guesses how many will get sick, die, or spread it? #CoronaVirus
#DFWairport Dallas, Texas. Hope Senator Cornyn is enjoying that beer because thousands of travelers have all likely been exposed now to #COVID19. Just no way there's not sick & contagious passengers in these crowds.Trump's incompetence is going to cost lives. #CoronaVirus

Democrat #Illinois State Senator Thomas Cullerton was indicted for embezzlement from a Teamster’s Union.

#ButNothingsHappening
He was a union member in one division before joining the Senate, then while in the Senate, he was hired by another union division to be a union “organizer” in a full time position with salary and benefits.

He ended up doing little to no work & pretty much just ignored them.
He still collected his full salary and benefits, though, and also fraudulently collected reimbursed medical claims.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

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

The @FBI General Counsel @DanaBoente has proven to be a key player in the Trump Admin.

Few, however, are aware of the many crucial positions he has held—and why he may have held them. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/dana-boentes-m…
During President Trump’s first 2 years in office, Boente served as the Acting #AttorneyGeneral, Acting Deputy Attorney General, Acting Head of @TheJusticeDept's #NationalSecurity Division, and currently serves as the @FBI’s General Counsel.
To more fully understand Boente’s role, we need to go back to Jan. 13, 2017, when President @BarackObama issued a last-minute #ExecutiveOrder that altered the line of succession within #DOJ.

Question for folks -- especially attorneys practicing in #Illinois and #CookCounty -- regarding the news that charges have been dropped in the Jussie Smollett case:
What should we make of the fact that Smollett agreed to forfeit his bond to the city of Chicago? 1/x
I'm getting this information from the @washingtonpost story washingtonpost.com/arts-entertain… and here are the relevant snippets from the story: /2
Some quick Googling tells people will sometimes forfeit their bond in order to cover court costs and fees. And it is possible that the state or the county have crazy fees associated with just getting charged with a crime (@Beth_Colgan has informed my on that issue) 3/x

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

For all those @NRA lobbyists downplaying the tragedy in #Illinois and resisting expanding a system that has blocked over 3.5 million gun sales to felons, domestic abusers, and other people who aren’t allowed to have guns under existing law, please consider the #facts.
The gunman who killed five people in his workplace after he was fired never should have been able to buy a gun. He was a felon, and as such, a legally prohibited gun purchaser.

Illinois FOID based on conviction records from within the PAST FIVE YEARS - in this case, the aggravated assault in Mississippi in the 90s.

(1/8) For all those exploiting the tragedy in #Illinois and insisting that expanding a broken and ineffective background check system will prevent criminals from accessing guns. Please consider the #facts.
(2/8) In 1995, the shooter was convicted of a felony prohibiting him from owning a firearm. #facts
(3/8) In January of 2014, the prohibited shooter was issued a firearms license (Firearm Owner’s Identification Card - FOID) by the state of #Illinois. #facts

The @RevJJackson and I are co-plaintiffs in a lawsuit against #Illinois over the use of #Crosscheck. The action would require the state to reveal the reasons for the removal of each of 550,000 voters purged from the Illinois voter rolls in 2017. gregpalast.com/greg-palast-an…

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
