@BreeNewsome Bree, PREACH! AMEN!

Courageous Pulitzer Prize-winning journalism as practiced & defended by those like David Cay Johnston (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Cay…) should be the MINIMUM standard for American Journalists & News Consumers.

We have a looong way to go.

@BreeNewsome Tragically, Millions deny the fact that Trump has long practiced Racism AND continues to be 🇺🇸's #RacistInChief.

This GasLighting Denial on both sides of the Atlantic is DEEPLY Troubling.

Question: what too-high percentage of Social Media Platforms are used for Gaslighting?

@BreeNewsome When will we in 🇺🇸 and across Europe and the World see Value in The Intolerance of Hate...especially NeoNazi Hate...especially at the institutional level.

For example: #ideal_policing

THREAD:
Someone asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?"

Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England, wrote this magnificent response:
(2)
"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,

Like Boss Tweed, Boss Pelosi sends a “fuck you” to her caucus, to
rank & file Democrats and most importantly, to Dem presidential candidates. #PowerGoneToHerHead

RIDDLE:
What's the difference between Boss Tweed & Boss Pelosi?
ANSWER: Boss Tweed had a dick.

.@SpeakerPelosi is trying to lay off her "pathetic" rating among the vast majority of Dems as a "left wing, socialist" thing. It's not. Her autocratic wet blanket on #ImpeachmentInquiryNow is extremely unpopular among all factions of Democrats.

They need to send lawyers & JUDGES into those torture camps along w/Fed. Marshals and take the ppl responsible for the horrifying conditions inside the Trump Concentration Camps and detain them for questioning about: ties to human trafficking & inspect their orders, charge them.
Idk 🤔
can a team of Judges go mobile monitored by lawyers and issue on the spot search & seizure warrants with Federal Marshall’s, FBI and other intelligence ppl at these concentration camps? Who else do we have the Nat. Guard/Mil? Citizens groups? Somebody! has to do this NOW!
I’ll tell you why it has to be NOW

Because they’re going to start dying in the HUNDREDS

So YOU take ur pick
Deal with it directly RIGHT NOW and save 1000’s of lives ‘before’ this broken system collapses
Or
accept the fact you ‘could have’ saved 1000’s of lives and looked away

1-All of Trump's evident grandstanding re Iran & the provocation of the situation by Pompeo/Bolton has me thinking @ what caused Mattis to resign. Here's a bit from Michael Wolff's book, "Siege, Trump Under Fire" pertaining to that situation. #SaturdayThoughts
2-pg 290. 'Siege, Trump Under Fire': On December 19...the president made two fateful decisions. Early that morning-without preparation or consultation, & bypassing the standard military & interagency review process-Trump sent out a tweet proclaiming that "[w]e have defeated ISIS
3-"in Syria," & then announced that he was withdrawing all US troops from that country. The military, diplomatic, & intelligence communities had long ago concluded that Trump's views about foreign policy gyrated peculiarly, & dangerously, on the basis of impulses & mood swings.

Pelosi made it CLEAR yesterday that she will not consider Impeachment proceedings of any kind w/o GOP support. CALL Congress today, even if you already have & tell them this is NOT ok. Only takes a minute. #FridayFeeling #ImpeachmentInquiryNow politico.com/story/2019/06/…
2-"Yet even as some of her closest allies shift to backing an impeachment inquiry, Pelosi still refuses to consider the idea without Republican support. She told reporters on Wednesday that support for launching impeachment proceedings would have to “run deep” for her to change
3-"her mind. However, Pelosi also ruled out censuring Trump — a far less severe reprimand — leaving Democrats with only removing Trump from office if they want to punish him. “I don't think you should have an inquiry unless you’re ready to impeach. Again, I’ve never asked any

Trump sets the table for Russia & destroys 2 years of FBI work. He’s “undone months of work, essentially inviting foreign spies to meddle with 2020 presidential campaigns & demoralizing the agents trying to stop them.” politico.com/story/2019/06/…
If you trust the FBI to block Russian interference in our 2020 election, here’s a great fictionalized account of a black flag operation in the Trump era. It only takes a few FBI Trump lackey toads to pull it off. “The Middleman”– Olen Steinhauer

@SpeakerPelosi’s House sycophants will be complicit for this:

Media falsely stratifies the Dem Party. The buck stops @SpeakerPelosi’s desk.
“the delays have given Trump the impression they can ignore their requests & get away with it unscathed. ‘You need a pirate’ when taking on Trump. ‘Nadler is just a sailor.’”

Contempt citations are just pieces of paper. What @SpeakerPelosi can do:
GOAL– Get full Mueller report/ EVIDENCE
WIFFLEBALL– Civil suit in court dragging it out for a year, perhaps losing
HARDBALL– Impeach Trump officials; Daily fines for private citizens

The New York Times has helpfully published proposed Articles of Impeachment against @realDonaldTrump: nytimes.com/interactive/20…
Amazing- they are simply editing the Articles of Impeachment drawn up for Nixon. I mean, when you read it like this IT MAKES A HELL OF A LOT OF SENSE.
If this makes sense to you, join #ImpeachTrump: Act to Defend Democracy demonstrations across the country on Saturday, June 15. Let's call on Congress for an #ImpeachmentInquiryNow!

🔥So... about that voicemail John Dowd, Trump’s lead defense atty, left for Rob Kelner, Flynn’s lead counsel. Kelner said the tone was “indignant and vocal in his disagreement“ that Flynn’s team was making a deal and couldn’t share info with him😳
🔥BREAKING NEWS🔥Even though John Dowd, Trumps criminal defense atty, KNEW that Trump was implicated in the Flynn situation and that it was a NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE, he tried to cover it up by telling the American people a LIE about the Mueller investigation ‼️
@realDonaldTrump, his lawyers, the @GOP, @FoxNews have perpetrated a COVERUP of their criminality with Russia and we need to DEMAND an #ImpeachmentInquiryNOW READ WHAT DOWD SAID👇

#ImpeachTrump. MY BLOCK TALES
Before #MuellerIsComing trended. #BillCosby was first to block me. I don't remember what I said but it was at the height of his sex crimes coming out. And because my tweet was featured as a response to Cosby listed as #7 to break the internet.
#JamesWoods blocked my 3 accounts. He tweeted about @HillaryClinton "cackling like an old crone" and I replied with "coming from a 300 year old, that's rich, old man" and bingo bango, blocked.
#MichaelCohen posted a photo of his daughter in a lingerie saying he was proud of her glamour modeling shot and I replied with "dude, that is so creepy. A bf posting that, would be cute. You? Not so much". Blocked.

Democratic Excuses for Avoiding Impeachment, Debunked. Based on @peterdaou's "There Are No Good Arguments Against Impeachment"
😩"The Senate won’t convict so there’s no point..."

💠Then why do House Democrats continue passing bills that fail in Senate? It's not the Democrats' job to base a failure to impeach on predictions, it's their job to defend our Constitution & rule of law.
😩"Democrats need to gather more evidence to make an airtight case for impeachment. "

💠Hogwash. Hooey.

Trump has produced a veritable superstore - a Walmart of impeachable offenses to pick from with tons of publicly available evidence alone.

🍑 This is what democracy looks like. Democratic leadership worries their message will get lost if the country focuses on Trump’s corruption. Yet telling us all to ignore the elephant in the living room will become their message if they do not begin an impeachment inquiry now.
