If this isn’t the GREATEST piece I’ve read this year, it has to at least be one of the greatest. I love this so much. When historians look back and ask “what went wrong?” they need only read this article. Ouch! Chef’s kiss emoji! nytimes.com/2022/10/05/opi…
“Ms. Haspel has joined forces with Sally Yates… The pairing of the spy chief nicknamed “Bloody Gina” by some C.I.A. colleagues with a breakout star of the #Resistance was peculiar enough, but … Rod Rosenstein, is also on the King & Spalding team.” 👀😭
Rosenstein tortured children, but hey money money money!“At the end of the day, elites take care of other elites, with very few exceptions,” said Christopher Sprigman…When it comes to family separation, he said: ‘Those kids are water under the bridge. There’s money to be made.’”

Our biggest polling gains are-

1-When Dems take on the corporate monopolies driving up prices, despite making super profits
2-Contesting the cost of living by hitting Reps hard on doing big corps bidding on price-gouging and taxes

#ResistanceUnited #wtpBLUE #DemCast #DemVoice1 #ProudBlue2022
Democrats hold their lead in polling only when we show how we embrace helping working people with the cost of living as our first priority

Calling out Monopolies, shouting out the unfairness of the "Top 1% economy" all work

#Resistance United #wtpBLUE #DemCast #DemVoice1 ProudBlue2022
Discussion of the top 1% and monopolies doesn't expose the usual partisan splits
Nobody offered the usual response about “job creators,” barring 1 Trump voter in the Philadelphia group

One of the endless number of #Resistance imbeciles who promoted himself by feeding dumb liberals what they wanted to hear -- including on CNN -- now has an instantly viral thread on why @maggieNYT is a felon.

To call these arguments ignorant is a gross understatement.
When Trump insulted Wolf Blitzer or Jim Acosta, the press treated it as some grave 1st Am crisis (while ignoring or cheering the real press freedom attack: Assange's imprisonment).

Now we have a #Resistance hero being cheered for theorizing about how to imprison a NYT reporter.
Democrats are driven at their core by an obsession with censoring and imprisoning their adversaries.

They have succeeded in uniting state and corporate power to censor their opponents from the internet, and crave their imprisonment -- all while claiming they fight fascism.

I believe I have identified three of the people in yesterday's Trump golf course photo and I actually think this relatively innocuous explanation holds up.
Yet another lesson in not breathlessly speculating or repeating things partisans are sharing on Twitter. How many #resistance experts were sending out tweets with supposedly knowing commentary on the mob and lawyers?
I swear half these supposed crime experts are just throwing around slang they learned watching the Sopranos.

Reading & hearing reports from #Panjshir, the #Taliban apparently launched decissive & ruthless operations against the NRF in the province, to suppress & abolish the #resistance before arrival of the winter season.
As a ruthless& lawness militia, the TB are committing war crimes.
#Taliban's codename of "sending to #Khakriz" for extrajudicial killings, reminds me of the AFG communist revolution time's codename of "sending to Pakistan", used by the intelligence agency under Hafizullah Ameen's govt., for killing of anti-govt elements.

Taliban claimed killing 40 NRF members, incl. 3 commanders (Fahim-e Commando, Jawad&Mohammad Yar), during the clearing operations in 3 districts of Panjshir Province, adding that 101 more, including commander Malik Khan, were captured alive.

The last day of August, the last day of summer.
Sadly, not the last day of #Russia's monstrous and illegal war on #Ukraine.

We've reached Day 189
If you want to scroll through yesterday's news, including a late story about more war crimes, click⬇️

The day started in bad, but predictable fashion for the people of #Kharkiv

Virtually on the stroke of midnight the new round of shelling began. This was just hours after the murderous attack on the city yesterday which killed five.

#RussiaIsATerroristState #Kharkov #Ukraine

At least two people have been injured in the night-time attack on #Kharkiv (RU: #Kharkov)

Exact details have not been released, but the Governor Oleh Sinehubov confirmed a residential building in the centre has been hit.

Charlie Crist is probably going to beat Nikki Fried in today's Florida Democratic gubernatorial primary, and he may well win by a lot. the last poll put him up by about 30 points.

nationalreview.com/the-morning-jo…
That's consequential, because from the start, Fried ran a classic #Resistance campaign, ripping DeSantis as a heartless authoritarian dictator, accusing him of launching a “war on education” and “courting violent, white supremacist insurrectionists.”

nationalreview.com/the-morning-jo…
In other words, Fried used the playbook that Democrats used against the GOP and Trump in 2018 and 2020, that worked a lot of places but not quite everywhere.

But this time around, it's flopping... and it's _flopping in a Democratic primary_.

Day 181 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Yesterday, the thread was interrupted by @TwitterSupport banning me for 12 hours and their Execs refusing to reply to requests. Thanks to those who tried to help but the whole system is crazy
So what was my "crime"?

Errr.. I wrote about this story which is all over Twitter and international media.

It may have been Kremlin trolls, but I was almost instantly banned when mocking the FSB's videos.
Apparently I released "intimate details". WTF??

dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1…
When @TwitterSupport's arbitrary ban expires you have two options.
Only at that point can you dispute Twitter's ban.
If you challenge the reason for the ban you stay banned for two weeks while they "investigate"
If you accept your tweet was wrong it's deleted and you're "free"

I might have mentioned this but when we started watching older seasons and I realized Murray the muppet disappeared I fell down a wormhole of the Sesame drama around the transition to HBO and it's because the old lead writer voiced Murray and he quit. archive.thinkprogress.org/street-fight-w…
Murray is a symbol of the Sesame #resistance. His voice, Joey Mazzarino resigned in protest of the planned changes to Sesame, writing: “After almost a year of battling for what I believe is the heart and soul of the show, I lost the war.” archive.thinkprogress.org/street-fight-w…
Mazzarino also was the creator of Sesame's love letter to Black hair in the form of song, which got a lot of coverage at the time and also is beautiful. npr.org/templates/stor…

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?
