#ElonMusk isn't evil, BUT
👇A thread 🧵

His #libertarian ideology can be cartoonishly evil, bcs its amoral. That makes him a threat to #liberty, #prosperity & 250 years of American #democracy

There are a few dots to connect, so stick with me...

1️⃣ #PeterThiel wants a #Monarchy
2️⃣ The #KochBrothers are creating an #Oligarchy
3️⃣ #Putin's Russia is the grand vision
4️⃣ #Libertarians are amoral
5️⃣ #Ideology is blindingly dangerous
First, check out this remarkable @Techcrunch article called "Geeks for Monarchy".

Long before the 2016 election brought us a #Trump/#Putin/#Theil/#AltRight mashup of craziness, @klintron laid out this #antidemocracy ideology waaaaaay back in 2013.

1/ What is Moms For Liberty? 🧵

This new REPUBLICAN group started in #Brevard County, FL. They spread across the country(like COVID), calling themselves "non-partisan" and "grassroots", they are neither. Last week, they formed 4 large PACs. Let's dive in!

2/ FACT: The Republican agenda IS to privatize public education, and put that tax money into their own private piggy banks. They have already taken several steps down that road, and that's not an exaggeration.…
3/ Matt Gaetz sponsored a bill in 2017 that would have completely elimated the U.S. Department of Education @usedgov

The most vicious & destructive political idea is that “freedom” includes freedom to f#CK over other people, including by (for example) making them sick & polluting our shared planet. Freedom to kill endangered species (see Eric & Don Jr) is effed up too. You shld be ashamed. 1/
2/ In the midst of the Flint water crisis, House Speaker Paul Ryan wrote an op-Ed opposing the EPA’s Clean Water Act, which several #KochBrothers businesses had lobbied against. Because they want “freedom” to poison our water.…
3/ “What the Koch brothers have bought with their huge political outlays is, above all, freedom to pollute.” Leave it to the #Kochs to ruin a word like “freedom.”…

Author and researcher Anne Nelson (@anelsona) explains how Council for National Policy (#CNP) members see the U.S. as a christian nation with their own form of christianity as dominant, with their churches acting as political activists while maintaining their tax-exempt status.

The #KochNetwork, avatar of the tea party, rejects #shutdown protests via @politico AFP board member states “I think there's been a lesson...We saw what we wanted in the #teaparty. It didn’t work out like we’d like. And now we’re much more practical.”
Multiple conservative groups that have been longtime allies of the #KochNetwork network, such as FreedomWorks and #TeaParty Patriots, have led the #shutdown protests. Even the CEO of #ALEC has signed on.
Art Pope, owner of #NorthCarolina politicians, is a co-founder of AFP-NC with David Koch, and often called "Koch Jr". When asked about the #KochNetwork’s position on the current wave of #protests, Pope said “I’ll let them speak for themselves". #NCleg

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"…
"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP…

I know, I know. Don't engage the trolls. Sorry @GretaThunberg @ScienceNotDogma but that "500 Scientists" story is gaining waaaay too much traction, and I'm feeling fighty. Most of the press are just parroting the PR and that's feeding the trolls. So, prepare to be threaded...
Background: A letter headlined "There is no climate emergency" was delivered to the #UNFCCC on 23 Sept, claiming that the "European Climate Declaration" was signed by 500 scientists and professionals. Of those 500, more than 150 are NOT Europeans. Soooo....
Even more preplexing, a large percentage of the signatories are NOT associated with the natural sciences at all, and many of the "professionals" are in the pocket of the #FossilFuels mafia. We can get a rough idea of this pact's make up by looking at their so-called Ambassadors.

1. The @GOP took Russian money. That's what we should be talking about. Trump, Barr and Berman are concealing #SDNY FinCEN case that leaked Russian money. Press should ask every member of @SenateGOP 2016 cycle below if they took Russian money.

Did you notice that many of the
2. @HouseGOP who quit were involved in RNC finance? I think the @FBIWFO is on to them. @MSNBC ask them every time if they took Russian money. Watch their eyes.
3. I was watching Trump and GOP money in June 2016. They were both broke. #KochBrothers wouldn't pony up. So Trump team meets with the Russians and the money came rolling in.

Here is Trump's May 2016 report before Trump Tower. $45 million loan and insolvent cash flow:

NOTHING FOR FREE - How Private Judicial Seminars Are Undermining Environmental Protections and Breaking the Public's Trust… See How the Far Right has Been Influencing the Judiciary since the 1990's❗️
From 1992-1998 just 3 of these organizations ran 540 "seminars" for conservative judges, building towards a conservative judicial consensus on environmental issues
Within the programs at the Law and Economic Center judges are instructed in such matters as "Misconceptions About Environmental Pollution and Cancer" and "Real Science vs. Junk Science" - with a distinct free market, anti-regulatory orientation.

The @GOP and the #KochBrothers have tried to hide the dark money and even the few GOP who have resisted Trump publicly fear what would happen if the White-Supremacist Trump supporters were publicly exposed. The data is public. Don't want to be on the list, don't contribute.
Anyone have Ross's Hamptons address? I'm guessing he lives in the boonies.
I don't see him in the Southampton real property database.

1. The @GOP owned and operated by the #KochBrothers have tricked Americans into being willing kill their own family. These monsters would love to end progressive tax system where you pay more if you earn more. That has been their goal since Fred Koch came back from Stalin's USSR
2. on a mission to destroy America. In 1951 the tax rate on income above $260,000 was 91%. And the American Dream wasn't just a dream. But by getting us to think tribally white vs non-white, and their favorite wedge the end of the right to privacy parading as the right to life,
3. the ghost of Joseph Stalin and his dream of the end of America is close. The final act was to put a Kremlin owned monster in the Whitehouse and then watch America rip itself to pieces. But how is that killing your own family? We expect the government to tax to build roads

1. My prediction: As Chinese goods are dumped to get ahead of Trump's #tradewar #tariffs, prices remain low but as inventories drop and demand remains, prices will begin to spike. IMO @POTUS Trump will create high inflation with a business slowdown by first quarter 2020.
2. The key is to keep talking about the Trump GOP being in bed with Putin (eg #MoscowMitch #LeninGradLindsey) and Putin's goal is destruction of US economy. Say it over and over again. So when this predictable result occurs the remaining non-#MAGA GOP will be predisposed to
3. wipe the GOP out in nearly every Senate race. The goal of Democrats holding the @WhiteHouse and ending GOP majorities not only in the House but in the Senate is clearly attainable but @TheDemocrats must remain focused on message. The goal is to not only defeat the @GOP but

1. As @HouseGOP run for the Titanic's lifeboats it will become a rout. Without an incumbent in the district the RNC get out the vote efforts will collapse. Add to that anyone working for Trump will suffer a lifetime of being seen as a white supremacist no competent person will
2. work for the GOP and only the dregs will serve as volunteers. That will translate to a rout in the about 7 to 10 states with @SenateGOP incumbents running. With #MoscowMitch now the face of treason & Trump adding his vile hate to treason the Senate is now clearly in play.
3. And Trump's strategy to fan hate will make the GOP un-electable for much of the country by 2022. After the Democrats run the table on state legislatures in 2020 the redistricting that #SCOTUS says can be politically gerrymandered could result in a House with

1. Now's the time to really let #MoscowMitch have it. He should see nothing but Soviet flags from now on wherever he goes. Make it look like he's Stalin reviewing the Red Army on Lenin's tomb. And don't forget who runs #MoscowMitch. Sons of a traitor who built the Soviet economy.
2. Comrade #KochBrothers they're playing your song.

3. Tax the Soviet vermin out of existence. For God & Country. Make the Oligarchs howl. @SenateGOP @senatemajldr Don't you just love this @GroverNorquist?

1. The Gilroy police officers who confronted the #GilroyShooter had to face a 7.62mm assault rifle with likely only their service pistols. Acts of valor. AK47 legally purchased in Nevada on July 9. Santino William Logan confirmed shooter. White supremacist links.
2. The GOP run by the traitorous #KochBrothers and the Kremlin infiltrated @NRA like to claim they are for law and order but they aren't. They are traitorous dogs who want to see police officers murdered. Shun @GOP and @NRA. Treat them like the enemy.
3. Because that's who they are. Filthy vermin. Shun them all. @foxandfriends @GOPLeader @SenateGOP

1. The @SenateGOP running in 2020 should have face protesters calling them pro-Kremlin traitors every day until the election. Peaceful but unrelenting. Make Mitch McConnell the face of the Kremlin and his caucus the Politburo. And the #KochBrothers and other donors the Red Army.
@SenateGOP 2. We need a net four Senate seats to stop Comrade McConnell. We need to take Mitch McConnell's pro-Kremlin election security fail and make the GOP running in 2020 buy into to it. Don't allow a member who is not running in 2020 to draw the heat. Make these members
3. pick a side: America or Trump and his Kremlin pals. Make them have to admit they are working for the Russians. That they are traitors assisting Russia levying war on the US.

1. I took a look at the old posts and I'm nearly certain the attacks on @AOC that has expanded to the other three new women of color Housemembers resulted from @AOC calling for 70% top billionaire tax rate. If she floods the media with calls for the billionaire tax increase and
2, show how it will help #MAGA folks with healthcare, schools, roads, bridges and JOBS she can turn Trump's hate back on him and the GOP. It's the economy, Always the economy. Make the issue the billionaire class who want your grandma to die in a ditch. Turn the MAGA on

1. I'm a New Deal Keynesian Liberal Democrat. So when I heard the @AOC use the “S” word I chided her for it because I knew the #KochBrothers would throw it right back at us. And they did. I trust a lesson was learned.
2. What Trump is doing from his perspective is clearly seeking to divert attention from Mueller but also from #PedophileGate. However, IMO, the reason they turned on @AOC and her team of left-leaning frosh House members is because they called for a 70% top rate. It's that simple.
3. I think if you check, they turned on @AOC shortly after that. Now I know that the #MAGA base gets charged every time Der Führer targets another group or person for more of his vile Trump hatred, and that is a perceived benefit to Trump2020,

1. By diverting attention to these issues @GOP takes focus off Trump Oligarchs' Tax Cut & @TheJusticeDept working feverously to kick millions off of health insurance. @TheDemocrats must counter by demands billionaires pay 91% on income over $100,000,000. 1950 rate over $200,000.
2. Our ads should paint the @realDonaldTrump @GOP as #Russian mob infested cabal of human traffickers and drug traffickers murdering little children around the country to feed #KochBrothers' insatiable desire to complete their father's assigned mission from Stalin: Kill America!
3. @FoxNews will be forced to play clips to try to beat it back and every time they do it will reinforce that the #Kochs want to harm your kids. They wanted populism? Let's give it to them in spades. Turn the #RedHats loose on the Oligarchs. They are angry and with the right

1.@NicolleDWallace @MSNBC Don McGahn appears to be loyal to Trump. Based on my research, I conclude his loyalties are to #KochBrothers. Here is his first @WhiteHouse ethics disclosure, and two other documents that prove i360 is is a Koch Industries owned political data firm.
2. I believe that McGahn's goal like Barr and Berman in SDNY is to protect the Kochs. Barr is trying to disrupt investigation into what I spotted in real time in June 2016: Russian govt funding of the @GOP @SenateGOP @HouseGOP. I also think they funded
3. Gorsuch pr campaign. But they were definitely in deep not just with @NRA but with a variety of cutouts. McGahn was the hub of that spoke wheel conspiracy. Geoffrey Berman un-recused to block the SDNY from exposing it. Here is the proof. Pages from Natalie Edwards criminal

1. Barr knows full well his actions are dangerous, threaten national security and the very survival of the free Republic. I'm starting to believe his motives are related to Taliban-like Catholic cult he is reported to be a member of. This is what Catholics said would never happen
2. when JFK ran. NB there have been no Catholic elected since 1960. Barr's extremism plays to KKK Anti-Catholic narrative. NB #KochBrothers favor candidates who were raised Catholic but then reject the Church and converted to Protestant sects. See Reagan, Pence, Gorsuch & Comey.
3. The GRU could be planning to employ Barr, who I believe is a mole, to create an ideal Catholic threat to democracy that is then exposed. Guess who is the greatest threat to the Kremlin and their installed puppet? @JoeBiden. A Catholic. #ThisIsNotADrill. @CatholicBishops

1. I don't think Bill Barr has ever tried a case especially as a prosecutor. He's not a trial lawyer. Not a prosecutor. He was a CIA analyst put in DOJ to cover up a crimes committed by Reagan and Bush including Iran-Contra and arming Saddam Hussein with WMD.
2. When Bob Mueller, a counterintelligence prosecutor, burns an old friend who has assisted in a foreign attack on our Democracy we should all take notice. The House can and should impeach Barr for lying and obstructing Congress. First, give him 72 hours
3. to give a fully un-redacted copy of #MuellerReport to @RepAdamSchiff. Then open his impeachment proceedings. Use them to prove Barr conspired with Trump to conceal the attack on the US. Make Barr all about Trump and Russia. Almost a certainty Trump fires him to stop
