Here's the thing: when you don't have the facts, it's foolhardy to get over your skis being certain about any of this...but it's also entirely rational to fall back on your priors about the people, institutions, & incentives in play.
One of those priors is Trump being shady, but another is the known record of FBI misconduct in getting warrants against him under the last D POTUS, which can't be dismissed as "old news" in this context.
And as to incentives, the White House & DOJ right now are run by people with a panting & visible desperation to keep Trump in the news & use stray voltage tactics to rally his supporters around him to prevent them from moving on (say, to DeSantis.)

Replace the phrase "just as destructive as" with "infinitely worse than" and this sentence will become accurate:
By whatever metric one uses -- civil liberties assaults, attacks on the rule of law, support for savage tyrants, sheer death and destruction -- nothing compares to what was done via bipartisan neoconservatism during the first decade of the War on Terror:

It was a widespread consensus of liberals from 2001-2008 that Dick Cheney wasn't just misguided or politically wrong, but was a tyrannical monster, a war criminal and deeply corrupt goon (Halliburton).

Do they ever ask themselves why he now harbors so much contempt for Trump?

But let's start digging into this week, should we?
Last week we experienced a rally in #crypto with #Eth leading the way with a speculative date on the merge happening on September 19th.

BTC managed to rally breaking the trendline at resistance and the realized price, but failed to maintain those as support ImageImageImage

Let's see where disinformation comes from.

The wildly viral tweets claiming that a Florida law signed by Ron DeSantis requires students to register their political views is so blatantly false that CNN's @ddale8 does not even try to mask how false it was:

edition.cnn.com/2022/07/08/pol…
Then we have the even-more viral claim -- that made its way to the WH -- that Border Patrol agents "whipped" migrants, a claim spread by various Dem House members and Dem media figures like @chrislhayes. Even the Biden Admin now admits that never happened. ImageImage
Again, these are the same people who not only claim to be combatting disinformation but insist they are so reliably honest and have such superior wisdom they should be trusted to *censor the internet* in its name.

Nobody spreads disinformation most casually and destructively.

I've said this before but I really don't think many of you understand how unloved and unprotected the right to abortion was
I don't want to understate the magnitude of losing Roe, but at the same time, it's important to understand that in many ways this is a dotting of is and crossing of ts on a letter written long long ago
So many people — even people who ostensibly believe in a right to abortion! — have spent the past few years looking away as the right to abortion was whittled away, have kept abortion stigmatized, have barely said the *word* abortion.

#Value awaits as we ride 🚀🚀

#ValueSeries #trading #Crypto #dgcryptotv #indicators #RSI

Day 97. The 🇷🇺 military shelled an officially approved armored evacuation vehicle in the #Luhansk region, killing a French journalist. Heavy shelling in the #Donetsk region damaged a branch of the ammonia pipeline. Read more in today's brief 📲

@DefenceHQ indicates 🇷🇺 capture of #Lyman supports its operational main effort, which likely remains the encirclement of #Severodonetsk and the closure of the pocket around 🇺🇦 forces in #Luhansk region 😞 Military goal of 🇷🇺 is to take control of the Luhansk and #Donetsk regions.
@DefenceHQ Residents of the village of Vysokopillya in the #Kherson region are forced to survive without drugs and food, suffering from torture and repression. Another village bordering the #Dnipropetrovsk region is left without electricity, gas and drinking water as a result of 🇷🇺 shelling

This is the old thread I used to respond to whenever #GunControlNow was trending. It's outdated, and I wanna do a comprehensive thread now. So here's a new one.
Everybody tweeting #GunControlNow or #GunReformNow, lemme run through all the arguments and explain to you why they're wrong. I'm only here to educate, nothing more. You're allowed to disagree, but read through everything first. Let's roll.
ARGUMENT 1
"Assault weapons were made for war. They were created for the sole purpose of killing as many people as possible as quickly as possible. They have no place in the hands of private citizens."

This hinges on the definitions of "assault weapon" and "weapon of war."

A huge anti-feminist backlash is underway, and abortion rights are only one part of it. The backlash is coming from the right and the left. And it shows no signs of abating.

jill.substack.com/p/welcome-to-t…
Backlashes are just as cultural as they are political -- the cultural moments set up the political ones. And since 2016, a cultural backlash has been underway in response to women's increasingly obvious desires for power and freedom. Few things are as unsettling as female desire.
Anti-feminist political gains are to the credit of a right wing that has played the long game and used a variety of tactics, from elevating far-right law students into far-right judges no matter how paltry their qualifications or their intellect, to embracing extreme violence.

Obviously dismantling the administrative state has been a right-wing fantasy for decades—archconservatives though Ronald Reagan betrayed them because this didn’t happen in the 1980s—but let’s not overlook how the Deep State/QAnon stuff has given this political momentum.
The administrative state was never at the center of the culture war. Sure, the right didn’t *like* the administrative state, especially the higher up you went on the food chain, but it wasn’t something that really riled up the rank and file.

Trump changed that.
During the Trump administration the “Deep State” became a culture war issue—and to be clear this wasn’t just Trump’s doing, or the right-wing media, or conspiracists like the QAnoners.

It's a cause of momentary celebration that the Department of Homeland Security was forced by popular anger to "pause" its Disinformation Board and the absurd #Resistance cartoon they hired to run it, but read this to see how angry WPost and @TaylorLorenz are that this happened:
Investigating and criticizing a Homeland Security official is now "harassment" and bullying, according to the WashPost and @TaylorLorenz.

Only ordinary citizens can be investigated -- not high-level US Security State operatives. Them's the rules:

Summary of the rules from the WPost and @TaylorLorenz in case you're confused:

-- High-level officials of the Department of Homeland Security: off-limits from investigation and criticism!

-- Anonymous citizens who tweet bad ideologies: Dox, Unmask, Bang on relatives' doors! ImageImage

On Gun Legislation ( a thread):

Our Children Should Not Have to Suffer and Die to Pander to the Machismo Fantasies and Cowardly Fears of a Minority.

.

What I always think of is the analogy with cars.

1/
People don't generally go around committing mass murder with autos. Sure, people get killed in auto accidents, but it is not intentional. And we all *need* autos for daily tasks, errands, and work (unlike guns) ... so if it is an "evil" it is a necessary one ... daily!

2/ #FBR
Yet, what of cars? We require registration of them, of the driver, licensing, and training. Why are guns exempt from safety concerns? Why? I'll tell you why ... bc of rednecks who need them to feel "manly" (i.e., machismo)...

Last yr, writers @ The Post Millennial began quietly writing for a Canadian tourism site: WhoaCanada.ca, churning out anodyne content about Tim Horton's + things to do in Toronto.

Why? Follow along to learn about TPM's secret (and final) source of advertising revenue. Whoa Canada article headline: 10 unlikely locations to find The Post Millennial headline: "America isn't a racist n
I first caught whiff of WhoaCanada.ca while digging around @Yahoo's sellers.json directory. TPM's account contains 3 domains:

•Whoa Canada ("7 desserts you can get in Toronto")

Lol what❓ Whoa Canada homepage. w/ headlines like "10 historical
It took me ~15 sec to realize that WhoaCanada.ca *is* The Post Millennial — an ad operation explicitly designed to be the "brand safe" arm of TPM. This secret domain allows them to continue collecting ad $$, effectively subsidizing TPM's racist + transphobic content.

About "#Cyborgs" of #Donetskairport: "They survived, concrete did not survive." This definition best illustrates the victory of the defenders of #Mariupol. 🇷🇺 almost wiped out the city of half a million people, but 🇷🇺 does not have the weapons to break their spirits.

One of these heroes is a very young commander of the #Azov's squadron, Lev Pashko. He came to Azov in 2017, when he was eighteen, and the young man chose the nickname "#Horus" - the name of the ancient #Egyptian god of hunting, sky and war.

On March 26, from the side of #Gnutove, 🇷🇺 made another attempt to break through the defenses of the defenders of #Mariupol. A convoy of 🇷🇺 5 tanks and 2 IFV drove into the city. A group of guardsmen under the command of Lieutenant Pashko came out to meet 🇷🇺 .

Leftie shitposters and #resistance accounts have done a much better job of predicting the behavior of the GOP over the past six years than supposedly levelheaded centrist journalists.
I don't know how much of that is self-deception on the part of the pro-complacency crowd, but its effect is to facilitate GOP radicalism.
In order to stop them we need to convince a non-fascist majority that the GOP in it's current form is incredibly dangerous, but these dickheads are allergic to that reality

The worst, most egregious and most nefarious official US disinformation campaign in years was the pre-election CIA lie that the authentic Biden emails were "Russian disinformation."

It was led by liberal outlets: CNN, Politico/Natasha Bertrand, HuffPost, Mother Jones, Intercept.
Not one of these outlets that spread this CIA lie with the purpose of manipulating the election outcome - not one! - has acknowledged the proof of authenticity, let alone retracted.

How can outlets that did this posture as anti-disinformation crusaders?

And, needless to say, the #Resistance cartoon now **running a new Homeland Security Disinformation Board** helped spread that lie.

The outlets that claim to oppose disinformation all employ or rely on the Security State ghouls who lie more than anyone.

That the Biden Admin casually announced today that the Dept of Homeland Security -- a domestic security agency -- has created a "disinformation" board is indescribably dystopian and chilling.

That Democrats think this is good and normal tells you all you need to know about them.
That the Biden Admin is using Homeland Security -- a domestic security agency -- to decree what is and is not "disinformation" is creepy and dystopian on its own.

That they found a caricature of an MSNBC-watching #Resistance kook to run it is surreal:

I don't know the exact percentage but I know the vast majority of self-proclaimed "anti-disinformation" agents peddled:

-- The Steele Dossier
-- The fairy tale that Russia seized control of the US with blackmail
-- The CIA fabrication of "Russian bounties" in Afghanistan.
