THAT IS NOT THE REAL PROBLEM!!!
There are many problems surrounding our #SHITHOLEPresident and his #SHITHOLE comments, but my issues are twofold, (ONE). the full contextual meaning of what he said, and
Martin Luther King Jr, born Michael King Jr in Atlanta to Martin Luther King Sr, a Reverend and Alberta Williams King. King was the middle child, Willie Christine King his older sister and Alfred Daniel Williams King, a younger brother.
Kings father was a stern man, a staunch advocate against segregation, would regularly whip King until he was around 15 years old. Seeing his fathers actions against the inequality likely created the philosophy that we all know of today.
Hey members of the @GOP: we know you're as nauseous as we are. You're in the culty thrall of a man with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. You're dancing on eggshells trying to avoid the next outburst of narcissistic rage. Here's the turning point: YOU HAVE THE POWER TO END THIS.
.@SpeakerRyan@SenateMajLdr wouldn't it be nice to have some peace? To not have to dance around the latest insane tweet? To not have to scramble when he damns a policy only to flip two hours later? To not have to negotiate with your conservative principles to justify the crazy?
You may not recognize that you are in the usual response to someone with NPD. You dance, you justify, you defend, you try SO HARD to mollify him, control him, avoid his outbursts, do nothing to offend, walk the fine line, try try try to keep him on the straight and narrow.
THREAD ON FUSION GPS. I spent the afternoon reading the transcript that Senator Feinstein released today. Here are the salient points, with citations. I am a lawyer and CEO. I was a securities fraud and human rights litigator in DC/NY for over 15 years. Read on for takeaways.
2/ As I process the Fusion GPS transcript, I'll post significant points here in individual tweets. For starters: NO, Fusion GPS doesn't do hatchet jobs to try to get government agencies to start investigations against people. (Tr. 25)
1. It's 2018 and time to get #backtowork doing everything we can to elect #Democrats to Congress. Nothing is more important in the battle against the authoritarian slide we've witnessed this past year. Our vote is our voice and our power.
2. We formed Democrats Work For America to fill the gaps in the Dem party infrastructure by engaging, registering, protecting and mobilizing voters and by supporting winnable candidates in winnable districts. We are a super pac for grassroots activists by grassroots activists.
3. With grassroots volunteers all over the country we have fostered collaboration between grassroots organizations and ground-level action to increase voter education and turnout. We have won nearly all our featured elections so far.
As requested, I'm putting the instructions for this #ProtectMueller#Resistance project into a text format. This covers 1) why bother doing this, 2) how to find the donors' addresses on the FEC website, and 3) how to send a postcard to your list of donors.
1/ We’re getting close to a constitutional crisis here, so we really need to try something new to stop this. Of course, keep calling Congress directly–but it’s become painfully obvious that the GOP–the people with the power to stop this–only respond to their base & their donors.
2/ So we’re going to speak to their masters and send a BLIZZARD of postcards to their big donors ($1,000+) to remind them what is at stake before we reach a point of no return, before Trump crosses the Rubicon (look it up).
Clearly the US is under a counter-intel (CI) attack. But what is CI and how does it function? Let's look at the overall picture, and some specific case-studies. #RussianPropaganda on social media is a form of offensive CI, which #TheResistance intends to counter.
