Thread. #MyLifeAsAResister looking back at 12 months which feels Iike 12 years. So much happened every day, but we put one foot in front of the other, wading through the lies, the chaos, the deconstruction of our institutions. We keep our faith. 1/24
January 2018, for the second time in two years, women and the men who support us, gathered by the millions to send a message. We will not be cowed by a regime that does everything to take away our own agency. My cousin Zigi and I at the #WomensMarch @ZigarinaZigi 2/24
February 2018. Looking for inspiration and wisdom, I went to see Dan Rather, whose book is a must read for resisters. @DanRather spoke eloquently about what he learned from decades of reporting, that we are mighty together, that our core values hold and that it IS up to US. 3/24

The two children should receive autopsies. and the cause of death should be made public and covered on EVERY media outlet that has reported it. We have children who die in the custody of public schools (#Parkland) It turns out the government IS responsible but no one reports it.
This article is from 2015..Wonder who was President then 🤔 Can anyone tell me why it was not addressed?

How about 2007? Wait a minute..democrats had control of BOTH the House and the Senate. Didn't someone report on this?

Research indicates that arming teachers will make children less safe. For this reason, school safety experts, teachers and law enforcement officials across the country oppose arming teachers: everytownresearch.org/arming-teacher…
The nation’s two largest organizations of education professionals, the @AFTunion and the @NEA, consistently reject the presence of guns in schools. The @NASRO_Info, the largest organization of school-based law enforcement officers, also opposes arming teachers.
Our children deserve real solutions to keep them safe from gun violence – like a criminal background check on every gun sale – not dangerous, @NRA-supported policies that put them at even higher risk while lining the pockets of gun manufacturers. #flapol #Parkland

I am still freaking the F out. My kids. My babies.

A real plan to shoot kids in school. MY kids school. With locks, double entrances, security guards, not a lot of doors.

Arrests made.

They’re safe. Only way I can tweet this through my tears and rage.

My kids arrived at school to find themselves in immediate lockdown within 10 minutes at their middle and high schools.
Here’s some texts of fear, I love you’s and me reminding them how to hide & run. Find your sister. Don’t save anyone else.

I couldn’t be there to protect them.
No parent should ever have to go through this. Ever. I keep thinking of @fred_guttenberg & the other #Parkland parents who will never see their babies again.

And the #parkland kids @davidhogg111 @Emma4Change
who had their lives threatened for not wanting to die at school.

12 more parents have lost their children. Another community is traumatized. I have had #enough

I am DONE with @NRA telling me I can't talk about this. DONE accepting federal limits on #research

And I know you are, too.

This is what you can do:
nyti.ms/2DaBzLG
1. Share your stories. After #Parkland, people across the country told about the horrors they had seen as #Docs4GunSense. Stories matter. This is not a glamorous movie. These injuries are REAL LIFE. This us OUR LANE.

2. Talk about guns. Talk about guns with gun owners and non gun owners. We are on the same side. Create consensus. Want some tips? Listen to me and @ERdisasterdoc - try it out for size.

WE TOLD YOU. Brennan trying to cover his FAILING OP that is FALLING APART.

Brennan counts on us NOT KNOWING that Saudi politics is very complicated. His plotters understand that complication. The Western audience they intended to HOODWINK does not.

VSGPOTUS is right. WAIT
The fact that they struck at Saudi Arabia FIGURES - also the fact that they struck ON TURKISH SOIL - exactly like the way communist BLOOD HOAXES in America are always in what I call "Deep Blue Murder Zones" - where all the workup of the crime is by a compromised authority.
Whether it's Eric Holder and #Parkland, Andy McCabe and #LasVegas or John Brennan and #SaudiArabiaInTurkey - these DIRTY, SKETCHY events are always where there is deep Democrat or Globonazi NARRATIVE CONTROL by the same Cankles World Order Dirtbags. This is Brennan's "WMD" lie.

Aaaand #Kavanaugh has returned answers for all these questions in a 263 page document. Put on some coffee and let's go through them. judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
Kavanaugh answers a question from @SenFeinstein about his use of the term "abortion-inducing drugs," which was tweeted about by Hillary Clinton and others. Only recounting plaintiff's assertions, he says.
Kavanaugh says his description of Roe v. Wade in a 2003 email was comments on the view of legal scholars, and "did not describe my own views."

#AalayahEastmond giving this testimony should give all America pause.
This is one of our children detailing a story we hear from seasoned military.
It's gutting, it's horrific, it's untenable.

Yet #Kavanaugh says that these weapons should be available to all.
#KavanaughHearings
"Remember all victims of #gunviolence....If Judge #Kavanaugh doesn't have the decency to shake the hand of the father of a victim of gun violence, he won't have the decency to protect us from gun violence."--#AalayahEastmond, #Parkland shooting survivor
#KavanaughHearings
ICYMI #AayalahEastmond, #Parkland survivor:
"If the youth across the country can fight to eradicate gun violence, why can't judges, lawmakers and Donald Trump understand that young people are dying from this senseless gun violence?"

I hope the #Kavanaugh confirmation hearing is total chaos.
#Kavanaugh not sworn in and we're one hour into hearing. I am excited about the chaos that has transpired thus far and not sorry for feeling this way. I expect Kavanaugh will be confirmed. If the hearing is a shit how, then it won't be a total waste of time. #ExcitedNotSorry
#Kavanaugh leaves @fred_guttenberg hanging at confirmation hearing. #Parkland #GunReformNow

(1) Thread #4 about the #TaosCompound New Mexico case, starting 8/30/18.

Read my series of threads about this case:


NM has a GOP Governor with power to direct the state AG to take over the case from the small-town DA.

Facts > Speculation

#MAGA
(2) You're not helping #MakeAmericaGreatAgain by accepting the cherry picked talking points of either Democrats OR Republicans.

On the GOP side, we must clean up our act when it comes to reporting & discussing this case. It is serious!

Don't be a hypocrite. Use your brain.
(3) Trust me, I've heard everything people are saying about this case. And I have assembled the facts that correct the misinformation. Anyone can do this, I'm not special. It just takes an open mind & a couple of hours of searching online, & I've done most of it for you.

If you mention #MollieTibbetts and someone responds #NiaWilson, it is time to face some uncomfortable truths. First, please understand, the Democrat media machine coordinated and spoon fed them that talking point, *entirely* to silence you. Media doesn't care about either murder.
Let's look at the tragic murder of #NiaWilson. The killer was a career criminal. The crime rate of Oakland is off the charts. Homicide is 5X the national average. What do locals do about that? Democrats have run it since 1977.
Democrats & (mostly Democrat) Californians were so pleased with how Oakland has been run, they elected one of the Mayors for nearly ten years the current Governor! Democrat cities regularly suffer lousy education, poor mental health support, corrupt govt, corrupt cops...

#Q asks - Who is the REAL #MichaelAvenatti ?

Well Housatonic IT Services never really thought about it, but since you ask #Qanon , we would be happy to take a peak
[2] #AboutAvenatti

Although it is biased (as described in #AboutStrzok)... and even edited by confessed pedophiles (dead serious... even people who discuss how they have fantasies of raping their own parents), we always have to start with @Wikipedia

See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_A…

Dammit ...

"While in college and later in law school, Avenatti worked at The Research Group, a political opposition research and media firm run by #RahmEmanuel (later White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and Mayor of Chicago)"

I think people who currently speak as wise commentators have absolutely NO idea how much of a generational sea-change is occurring in the human ability to shift ideas and actions to face climate change and other challenges. 1/X (sorry not sorry)
Older people feel comfortable centering preferences (utility theory!) and habits (eating meat, taking flying holidays ...) over planetary & common problems.

Younger people (my students, kids I know) prioritize principles and common good, and make choices accordingly. 2/X
They make principled choices often and openly despite convenience, personal advantage and taste. My kid gave up dairy milk overnight because of his love of the rain forest. My students/postdocs forgo career opportunities because they won't fly. 3/X

MEGA-THREAD.

There are three points in history that absolutely nothing to do with each other,..

Pickett’s Charge of 1863
Obama of 2008
Ocasio #NY14 of 2018

...and everything to do with each other

General Lee was brilliant….
but did you know his #2 guy George Pickett was a no-kidding genius?

What he was to Calvary, Patton was to Tanks.

And like Patton….Pickett finished Dead Last in his class at West Point.
Always getting into trouble.

At West Point, Pickett was a loser
Too much of a party guy and always getting into trouble.

But when he got into the field
and away from prying eyes of Captains and Generals, he was AMAZING.

Army was smart enough at least to send Pickett out West.

I had to get a little space around the murder of five humans who happen to be in the news biz. Killed for doing a job that is vital to American values. A job that has been under constant assault by #Trump & his propaganda team masquerading as a news channel, #FoxNews /1
I normally tweet off the cuff, cynical, shots about #POTUS and his enablers. This time it’s different. This time it’s cold blooded killing in a field I know and studied. I have a feeling of cold dread existing side by side with red hot rage. We all know who encouraged this. /2
#Trump has used his aggressiveness to target journalists. BY NAME. Promoting his base to vilify any journalist and news media that disagrees with him. It’s a tactic that has endeared him to his cult of personality. It’s a technique that is straight out of the dictators manual. /3

My “NO” to a #SCOTUS nominee until after the election is an act of radical love:
This no is a “yes” for my mother and my mother-in-law and my sisters and my daughters, so they can access the health care they need.
This no is a yes for immigrants and their children.

On this day, June 25th, 1952, my mom, Joyce was born. Today would've been her 66th birthday. But sadly, she will forever be 27 b/c she shot & killed herself on Sept 8th 1979. This is the 39th birthday that I don't get to spend with her.
This the 39th year that I won't get to sing #HappyBirthday to her. Its only the 4th year that I've actually known her birthdate. Thanks to the @AMarch4OurLives students & an audience of strangers, I finally got to enjoy singing my mom Happy Birthday.
We take those moments for granted, but for me, this will be with me for the rest of my life. A group of strangers felt compelled to do something so amazing & life-changing for me & my mom. To allow me the chance to just live in that moment & enjoy something that I've never done

1. A long time ago, in 1981, the @NRA produced a short film called “It Can Happen Here.” In it, federal agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (@ATFHQ) are depicted as “Nazi gestapos” and “jack-booted fascists.”
2. The following year Congressman @JohnDingell, a Michigan Democrat, said this of the federal agency tasked regulating the national gun market: “I would love to put [ATF agents] in jail,” said Dingell, now retired. “I would dearly love it. I think they are evil.”
3. By the 1990s, the NRA’s coordinated attacks on the ATF had reached a “fever pitch,” according to gun policy expert Robert J. Spitzer (@spitzerb), a professor of political science at SUNY Cortland and the author of The Politics of Gun Control.
