Outtakes from the #DNC Executive Meeting in #PuertoRico (thread)

Chair promises a 2020 process that is fair. Will release a protocol on debates soon; expect debates in summer 2019 . Will decide by March 2019 the Host City for 2020 Convention: Houston, Miami Beach, or Milwaukee.
We have worked hard to rebuild trust on our presidential process. Rules and Bylaws Cttee working with early states on rules. A key rule change ends superdelegates voting 1st round absent consensus candidate BUT elected officials can still be PLEOs & not run against constituents.
The PLEO Party Leader Elected Official designation is for pledged delegates who are Members of Congress Governors etc who want a first round #DNC convention vote but don’t want to run against activist to get there.

w/ @Sefini @sloan_kettering, Juan Ramirez @aaas @nahjUPRRP, and @fcoloninFL of Jasperi Consulting and former advisor to US Dept of State
Ramirez shows #NSPNsymposium18 the striking and dramatic impact of the #PuertoRico hurricane, and the impact on services and #infrastructure. Power was a prominent lasting impact. Cellphone signal was out for days, but once back the people got to work 💪
Pix of the student centre & research building at the university @nahjUPRRP soon after the hurricane in #PuertoRico, taken by Ramirez. Just over a year later, the regular semester and the natural beauty of the campus has returned 👏 #NSPNsymposium18

But seriously, this #Khashoggi story is scary. Jared Kushner is biffles with the crown prince and his father in law calls the press the “enemy of the people.” We need answers to this.
Like, people are over here listening to Kanye West give a soliloquy in the Oval Office while Kush sits there smiling to the camera. This is the news story today. Swift vs West II.
A hurricane hit Florida that Florida has never seen before. In OCTOBER. And the lower third is a Kanye quote that says Drumpf “saved the planet” days after the UN said we’re all dead in 20 years. Not 2,000, not 200, 20.

My thoughts are with the people in Florida being plagued by this horror. But there is no better time to note that this is a Cat4-Cat5 storm. Global warming, climate change, & associated catastrophic weather are real & pose devastating threats to life on earth.
I feel like it is my responsibility to add: Remember #PuertoRico
I just watched Trump talk about Hurricane Michael lashing Fl. He did his usual self-congratulatory droning about how his admin is ready to deal with it just as they were with other hurricanes that hit the US. He listed them & left Puerto Rico out because he doesn't give a damn.

IN 2018, WE MUST VOTE BECAUSE:
✅ American democracy is on the ballot
✅ Basic human decency is on the ballot
✅ The health of our planet is on the ballot
✅ Equality & justice are on the ballot
HERE ARE 10 MORE REASONS TO #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica:
1) Donald Trump thinks there are "very fine people" who march with neo-Nazis and the KKK.
2) Donald Trump & the Republicans instituted a Muslim ban in a country whose founding is defined by freedom of religion. #VoteBlue2018 #NoBanNoWall

For the record, I know nothing about astrology.
I love Astronomy!!!
I was even on the core team during the repair the Hubble Telescope while the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) which was installed during Servicing Mission 4 (STS-125) in May 2009.
Astronomy (from Greek: ἀστρονομία) is a natural science that studies celestial objects & phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics, & chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects & phenomena & their evolution. I love looking at the stars.
Objects of interest include planets, moons, stars, galaxies, & comets; the phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, & cosmic microwave background radiation. More generally, all phenomena that originate outside Earth's atmosphere are w/in the purview of astronomy.

1/4 One year ago, #HurricaneMaria devastated #PuertoRico. Despite the devastation, the spirit of Puerto Rico is stronger than ever and serves as a reminder to be resilient in our fight for a #JustRecovery.
2/4 MA is home to thousands of Puerto Ricans & loved ones displaced and affected by the disaster and I am committed to supporting those living in the MA-7 CD and advocating for a #JustRecovery process for the island. From Villa Victoria to Washington DC, I stand with #PuertoRico.
3/4 I recently had the honor of meeting with nurses from @nahnnursing. They are making a 2nd trip to bring necessary medical care, food, supplies, & hope to the island. They need volunteers, sponsors, and donations to expand their impact. Get involved: gofundme.com/NAHN-Chapter-M…

DEAR MEDIA: Every single time you're appalled by something Trump says or does, report on the GOP sycophants who cover for him.

Billions are being spent to detain immigrants. What a colossal waste on an immoral, hateful policy.

How many in the path of #Florence could that help?

"Southwest Key has received $1.39 billion..Baptist Child & Family Services has received $942 million.

cbsnews.com/amp/news/the-b…
How many could it have helped in #PuertoRico?

How many people complaining about jobs and the economy could've had their lives improved?

How many mass shootings could've been stopped?

How many roads and bridges could've been built?

How much could we have improved health care?
How much more secure could we have made our elections?

How many climate disasters could we have ameliorated, if not prevented?

How many people could've been retrained for better paying jobs?

Think elections don't affect you?

They do, whether you know it or not

#PuertoRico's imprisoned folks have been auctioned off to CoreCivic to be sent to AZ.
This despite opposition fr attys/orgs; concerns re healthcare at the AZ prison to which they'll be sent & CoreCivic's exploitative, dishonest & violent practices, as well as previous uprisings by PR's incarcerated folks who've been sent to mainland "US." periodismoinvestigativo.com/2018/08/depart…
A reminder that the vast majority of people imprisoned in #PuertoRico, just like everywhere else are Disabled, low/no income, indigenous/negatively radicalized.

This is a #DisabilityJustice+#RacialJustice+#EconomicJustice issue.

⚡️Please vote for Bill Nelson @SenBillNelson for U.S. Senate!

🙌He stands up for what is right!

☑️Bill Nelson stood up for the kids after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
👉At the CNN Town Hall, he pointed out that Governor Rick Scott didn’t show up and even defended NRA money recipient Marco Rubio ($3,303,355 received from the NRA) for having the "guts" to show up and take criticism. A lot of it.

☑️Time and time again Bill Nelson stands up for the Environment. After the BP oil spill, Nelson co-sponsored the RESTORE Act, which directed money from BP fines to states affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…

Too little has been done to help the thousands still suffering in Puerto Rico from the effects of Hurricane Maria. With 6,000 Puerto Ricans resettling in our state we must do more.... bostonglobe.com/opinion/2018/0…
...In 2005 and 2012, the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) was activated to help pay for emergency housing, utilities, and relocation of victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. As your Congresswoman, I would seek to pass legislation mandating the activation of DHAP...
...for those affected by Hurricane Maria, and ensure that humanitarian disasters like the one in post-storm Puerto Rico are not repeated with future storms. We have a duty to help secure a stable future for our fellow Americans...

1/ From amazing Twitter sleuth @ThomasS4217 #GeoGroup
Article from Nov 15, 2016:
"Bracewell & Giuliani represented Cornell Companies, a private prison operator that later merged with GEO Group. Giuliani never personally registered as a lobbyist." (con't)
2/ "Giuliani Security & Safety provided security advice to a Singapore gambling project on behalf of a partnership that included a tycoon close to the North Korean regime who is considered an organized crime figure by the U.S."
(More in next tweet from source article...)
3/ Nov 21, 2007:
In Sep 2006 "Giuliani appeared in Singapore🇸🇬 to help a Las Vegas developer make a pitch for a $3.5 billion casino resort." Giuliani Security & Safety had a 10-year agreement to provide security for the resort. (con't)

Hey @PressSec Sanders, You asked "Where are the apologies to Trump?" America wants to know; where are the apologies 👉🏽FROM👈🏽 Trump to NFL players for calling them unpatriotic & sons of bitches; to Gold-Star parents, Khizr & Ghazala Khan for implying that Mrs. Khan was not- 1/
allowed to speak because of their religion, that Mr. Khan's speech was written by someone else, & even worse, that Trump's "sacrifices" of "hard work" was somehow comparable to their son's death; to the leaders & citizens of African nations after he called them "shithole... 2/
countries"; to Mexicans, for implying all are "bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists."; to Haitians, for implying they all "have Aids"; to Latinos for calling them "animals"; to the women of America after he was recorded joking about he enjoyed committing... 3/

1. I've tweeted a lot about this story so here's some more cohesive thoughts. Without emotion (god it's getting harder), and beyond the obvious notion that the government has a duty to have accurate numbers, this new numbers also matters because there will be more hurricanes.
2. In disaster management, there are five stages to a crisis: prevention, protection, response, recovery and resiliency. The "boom" (event) occurs between protection and response. It is why people like me talk in terms of left and right of boom. nytimes.com/2017/06/05/opi…
3. Each of these stages has its own focus, policies, etc. But I want to focus on resiliency, the last. Resiliency is more than a mood; it's actually a series of investments that make a system better than before. Because, there will be more hurricanes (& terror attacks, etc.)
