Remember #Trump’s comment about sending stealth planes against his “#deepstate” enemies? Well... for once, he didn’t lie... look what I just caught outside my house (and no, I didn’t have the flash on). Posting a video soon about it. #teamavocado #resist - HN
@Rachel_B_Soccer @pea_ohana @PrairieDogFan @debbiemargerum @thomas_chips @CharlieWinBrad @RogueElsa You can also see the outline of the plane over my driveway.
Read 3 tweets… I was sent a piece of mail a few days ago from somebody who has threatened my life multiple times. He sent me a tracking number and it was suppose to arrive today by the #FBI had it rerouted because they think it had a bomb or a substance in it.
I believe this is tired to the #bombthreats nationwide. I have alerted Rod and Cap, as well as, several members of the #FBI I work closely with. Let’s bring these suckers down! #resist #TeamAvocado - HN

Please remember it is a psychological self defense mechanism to normalize what’s going on around you

And when that doesn’t work, many people will find they grow numb or hardened to things that used to bother them immensely

#Resist normalization

#Resist hardening of the heart
How do we keep from normalizing the current political state of affairs?

How do we keep from hardening our hearts?

We can start by regularly reminding each other “This is NOT Normal” and emotionally supporting each other.

Encourage breaks and discourage quitting.
Now I’m gonna be honest and admit that I’ve been struggling with the numbness.

I have been for a few months now.

You know what keeps me from going fully numb or quitting?

#Resisters keep me here. Their passion re ignites mine.

Never forget how important we are to each other.

" entirely different kettle of fish."
2/ On election night 2016, Chuck Grassley must have looked back at the previous year and considered how wild it was just up to that point. A surprise opening on the supreme court put Grassley and Mitch McConnell in the position where they refused to take up the Garland nomination
3/ That decision led to much heartache among the democrats and castigation aimed directly @ Grassley

Not to mention the Clinton email saga which he played an oversight role in and all against the backdrop of a nasty presidential campaign season. Nevertheless, Iowa re-elected him

1. That white evangelical subculture has been "shielded from criticism" is absolutely true; it's something the #Exvangelical community is working to end. The shielding is partly due to evangelical leaders' savvy about cultivating good PR and cozy relationships with journalists.
2. For an introduction to how evangelicals manage their PR, see this piece I wrote for @RDispatches ahead of the midterms:…

To dig deeper, follow and look up the work of @brucewilson, @FredClarkson, and @PRAEyesRight.

#Exvangelical #EmptyThePews #Resist
3. But there's another reason evangelicals have been shielded from criticism, and that has to do with what @drvox refers to as "media culture's weird mythology about who is & isn't 'Real American.'"

So, what should we do about this? This Thursday, December 13, #Exvangelical Twitter needs to show up in large numbers to tweet criticisms of complementarianism, purity culture, and anti-LGBTQ theology with the hashtags #ChurchToo and #GC2Summit.

#EmptyThePews #Resist
I want to be clear this is @emilyjoypoetry's plan; I am going to participate and want to get the word out about it, as well as to help raise awareness of what's wrong with defenders of patriarchal evangelical theology claiming #ChurchToo. Hint: it's the theology.
@babecolate would you be willing to help get the word out about this?

@Jim_Jordan Any #Trump sycophant, alleged pedophile protector, trying to besmirch this hero, while his own children will have to suffer from the decisions made for the country, is sad. Why wouldn't the #GOP make it an open door session if they had nothing to hide? Your reign ends soon.
@Jim_Jordan As time passes, more comes to light, with the Steele dossier, Trumps alleged involvement in Epstein child sex ring where Secretary Acosta stopped the FBI investigation before more suspects could be arrested, and money laundering campaign contributions from Russian operatives.
@Jim_Jordan Plus your support for a theocratic monarchy that really acts like a ruthless inhumane dictator & desire to sell American technology to them when it could then be used to kill our own troops or handed over to Russia is genuinely INSANE. Who is dishonorable, spineless sycophantic?

In July, @grantstern and I published a five part series about the Grand Old Putin Party.

In part 5, we exposed the Coordinating Council of Russian Compatriots as being a Russian govt funded group in America.

They’re waging war on us.

2. Lozansky was one of the new additions.
3. Since we published, Lozansky deleted his entire “Fellows list” on his think tank.

Vowing to protect U.S. industry from overseas competitors, Congress passed the Tariff Act of 1930, better known as the Smoot-Hawley Tariff. The measure imposed near-record tax rates on a wide range of imported goods. Trade partners retaliated..
by imposing tariffs on U.S.-made goods. As a result, world trade fell by two-thirds between 1929 and 1934. The GREAT DEPRESSION is often associated with the stock market crash on BLACK TUESDAY 1929, but was the culmination of many factors. The public debt was 16% of GDP- 104%NOW

Jan 12, 2018-WSJ: "Trump Lawyer Arranged $130,000 Payment for Adult-Film Star’s Silence"
Jan 12...

So one week after FBI and DOJ were forced to hand over a ton of documents to HPSCI. Remember, that meeting where RR threatened Kash Patel, a HPSCI staffer, with surveillance?
Also one week after a judge forced Fusion to hand over all of their bank records to HPSCI

The SJLCouncils would never be able to accomplish what we do without serving alongside of the amazing #WhiteEyes #FBI, #MI6, and #DOJ men and women we work with. And although most Guardians have worked in the I.C.s for years - and many of us have extremely high sec. clear. - we
still couldn’t get as far as we have - and helped as many people as we do - without the #WhiteEyes at the #FBI, #DOJ, #MI6, and, even, the few good #Mossad agents we work with. Our deepest joy is to be able to stop terrorist attacks and rescue children, none of which could be
accomplished without the brave I.C. Members who risk their lives to expose darkness. So, thank you, ICs and WEs for all the hard work you do. The SJL Councils are extremely proud of you! #resist #theresistance #itsmuellertime #TeamAvocado

@realDonaldTrump News isn’t fake just because it’s critical of you. Alternative facts are not real unless supported by evidence. Trump’s war isn’t with the MSM, it’s with the facts. Fox News is the fake news you seek. It rots your brain. Shut it off. Ask public businesses to switch the channel
@realDonaldTrump Why I #RESIST

Wall Street 1% Tax Cut

@realDonaldTrump Mitch McConnell single handidly obstructed bi-partisan criminal justice, immigration, jobs and protect mueller legislation. Tampered with SCOTUS. Mitch must go. He’s up for re-election. If everyone who reads this message chipped in $5 we’d flip Kentucky…

The Christian Right is the biggest threat to democracy and human rights in the US. White evangelicals are Trump's base. Their stolen disproportionate power is the main reason Americans can't have nice things like effective universal healthcare

#Exvangelical #EmptyThePews #Resist
If you don't understand the ideology conservative Christians use to object to welfare and universal healthcare, here's a thread to get you started:

A few thoughts as I say goodnight
I’ve heard many liberals honoring the memory of President Bush
In response I’ve heard many libs outraged that we aren’t calling him out for his failings
It’s not for me to tell a anyone what they should do, but I’m offering some food for thought
What kind of people do we want to be?
We can use this time of mourning to focus on our political differences
That’s what the Right would do
I like to think our humanity runs deeper
I’d like to believe we’ve learned from the horror of the past two years
There are leaders whom we don’t agree with
Who do things we know aren’t good for our country
But at heart are decent people
We’ve seen their humanity
Their love of family, pets, and country
Men who aspire to be great leaders
Every staff member speaks of them with respect

Thank you to everyone who recently followed me.

As a gift, I offer this thread on how to communicate with conservative relatives.

We still have some holiday dinners with science-rejecting, racist, sexist, homophobic uncles, so let’s get to it. 1/ #FactsMatter #Resist
We have to understand why our conservative relatives think the way they do.

This comes down to three concepts:
1. Confirmation bias
2. Unconscious incompetence
3. Illusion of explanatory depth

Let’s take them one at a time. 2/
First, we have confirmation bias

Confirmation bias is the search for information that conforms to one’s preconceived notion of 'truth.' Think of your favorite Fox News viewer who only seeks out information that confirms his ‘truth’ and disregards information that does not. 3/

@AltWASONPS @chronophage @RogueEPAstaff [THREAD] Several other folks have asked me for my thoughts about this new Hatch Act guidance as well. Let me answer here. It may be lengthy, so I may not worry about cleanly dividing thoughts around tweet boundaries.
@AltWASONPS @chronophage @RogueEPAstaff Do I agree that the new guidance is correct, and that #resistance is inherently political activity? No, I do not. I do not #resist on the basis of political party. Several of my good friends in #AltGov have been lifelong Republicans
@AltWASONPS @chronophage @RogueEPAstaff #AltGov was not started to push for or against any parties. @BadHombreNPS started to resist the suppression of scientific data. That was (and is) the motive for many of the #AltGov accounts

Trump in 2013 praises James O'Keefe #ProjectVeritas. (Trump's foundation also paid O'Keefe $10K+)

2/ Thread - #PAC #Funding #Donors #NonProfit #TrumpDonors

In 2017, the funding for Project Veritas was revealed. Here are a couple MAJOR DONORS that caught my eye directly. Did they want bipartisanship?

While Julian, Rose, and Hepzibah are the #Nazis’ top targets right now, there ARE other “Keys.” The cult considers Julian (Asset), Hepzibah (Mockingjay), and Rose (Queen) their top targets because they are considered the top keys (has a lot to do with the luciferian agenda).
This is why @RogueMockingjay @ResistDarkness and @HimitsuNoJoo have so much harassment. However, @roguejas @HusbandsForever (Drakki not Alberto) @theliontriumphs @TheICCaptain (and his girlfriend) and myself are top targets, too. @AnUnlikelyAlly is one of the top targets, too.
The other top targets are: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Paul Ryan, Rod Rosenstein, and Anderson Cooper. So, please keep 🔑s in prayer and your thoughts for they all suffer badly.Pray daily for this list, if you believe in praying: Julian, Rose, Hepzibah, Johnny, Sharyn, Drakki,
