This long-time Brookings spokesman for the US Security State, and newly incarnated #Resistance icon, instructs his liberal flock to be more loving toward NSA & CIA and more supportive of surveillance-increasing laws once Trump is gone. Don't worry, @benjaminwittes, they will be:
Last week, @warkin quit NBC & published a letter condemning the network (& media generally) for using ex-Generals & CIA agents as "analysts" & thus being conduits for war propaganda. On @democracynow, he warned of liberals' reverence & love for FBI & CIA democracynow.org/2019/1/9/willi…
In the same @democracynow interview, @warkin described how dangerous it is to have MSNBC, CNN and the like populate the airwaves with ex-Generals & NSA/CIA officials as "analysts" & pundits and how anti-war voices, and real dissent, are systematically excluded. Indeed they are:

For some reason #resistance people have gotten fixated on the 25th Amendment. I'd suggest you read it. All the way to the end.
constitutionus.com/#r25
Yes, his cabinet can take power from him for a day or two under the amendment, but in order to remove him from office BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS must concur with a 2/3 vote.
People who say, "Oh, we can't impeach him because the Senate will never remove him,"
Somehow appear to think they can get a 2/3 vote to remove from the Senate AND the House when they can't get a 50%+1 vote in the House and 2/3 of the Senate.
Read. The. Fucking. Thing.
Jesus Christ.

Country shut down, farmers in bankruptcy, national deficit sky high, chaotic markets, military leaders quitting, Syria / Afghanistan policy in shambles, NATO alliances destroyed

Fast forward from the moment @HillaryClinton told us the truth

Epic history
Fox News host Shep Smith & Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano agree that Trump’s campaign colluded w Russia & that this collusion fits the elements of a crime: conspiracy

Trump's "ad nauseam" denials of collusion ... yet another Trump lie

Republican Senator correctly calls out Trump's treason on Senate floor

"By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the (Trump) let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy"

We have an emergency @SenateGOP TRUMP

@charliekirk11 To call this speech a riveting and dramatically effective, no-holds-barred, tour de force presentation of the case for a border wall would be an understatement. This was Trump at his finest hour.
@charliekirk11 This was the Trump the media do not want you to see and -- accordingly -- do everything in its corrupt power to hide. The president -- forceful, confident, eloquent -- delivered a heartfelt, emotional and factual appeal. An appeal based on reason.
@charliekirk11 But the speech was more. It was a vivid and reassuring display of what a take-charge leader looks like. America has not had such a forceful advocate FOR AMERICANS since Ronald Wilson Reagan.

If one more white person I’ve tells me they tweeted about #RKelly before seeing my thread...

Yall missing the point. The point is a racial trend. The point is societal silence on black survivors.
If you weren’t part of that silence I wasn’t talking to you, but maybe you should talk to your friends who keep @-ing me. Come collect all your people in my mentions saying off the wall shit. Keep doing your work rather than asking me to give you praise for on top of my own work.
If white people continue to only do their social justice work so that black women will be nice to them or thank them or whatever; if white folks only want to do good if they are recognized & acknowledged for it with unconditional praise, we’re never going to get anywhere.

The Guardians and Sentinels will mostly be on radio silence for the rest of the month but an insider source, a friend in #TheResistance passed along intel on real #Resistance publications and who you can trust in media, who will be smeared this week, and also some good psyops. ;)

Transcript from the 1/7/2019 hearing in the USA v. Concord Management (Russian troll) case.

Tension between Defense Counsel and the Judge. (A long time coming.)

A short thread.
The Judge criticizes Defense Counsel's most recent motion to compel reply brief as "unprofessional, inappropriate, and ineffective."
Here's the issue in the motion to compel: how did the Special Counsel obtain confidential information that Concord provided to the firewall counsel?

Judge is more concerned with colorful language than accusations of prosecutorial misconduct & violations of a protective order.

Dear @senatemajldr and @SenateGOP -Yesterday I sent you a list of your responsibilities as outlined by the US #Constitution -it is obvious you are not living up to those. Today, I want to remind you and everyone in the #Resistance about the history of the #Senate
Aaron Burr, VP once said "This House is a sanctuary; a citadel of law, of order, and of liberty; and it is here–in this exalted refuge; here if anywhere, will resistance be made to the storms of political phrensy and the silent arts of corruption."@senateGOP @senatemajldr
Can any of you say that is still true? Look in the mirror...when have you stood for something other than the corruption in the WH? When have you stood for anything besides "political phrensy"? @SenateGOP @senatemajldr

Ok #Resistance after 🍄 got elected I started tweeting him the US Constitution is small bites so he might read it. He didn't, but it made me feel better. I think @senatemajldr @SenateGOP need a reminder So I'm going to give them an Article 1 lesson. Feel free to help.
Section 1: All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives. @senatemajldr @SenateGOP
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote. @senatemajldr @SenateGOP

Check out this gold nugget.

Hillary: “I voted numerous times to build a barrier (wall) to prevent illegal immigration...”

Chuck Schumer: Those who cross the border illegally are illegal aliens..”

Obama: “...we can not allow people to pour into the US ..undocumented”
These prominent Democrats and *squints* ex-President were obviously hacked by the Russians.
In a shocking twist it was found that *some* Democrats wanted to possibly obey the laws of the land.

#Resistance hardest hit.

...There will be unavoidable violence and civil unrest. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Both sides are looking for their form of justice on their political rivals. We are at the point of no return. There is no conceivable timeline in which no side gets away....
...These upcoming major judicial movements and actions will change the world. This is not hyperbole or exaggeration. Imagine your reality completely shattering and even undeniable evidence will not console those who feel maligned by the offending parties. There is no example....
... in modern history that we can look to so we can gauge how the general population will react to these revelations and trials. Whether it is the #q #qanon #wwg1wga #MAGA crowd who is correct or the #ImpeachTrumpNow #Mueller #ResignTrump #Resistance who get their way. We are...

Don’t cry for me Twitter, the truth is I still don’t GAF. 🤪
I’m not #onhere for the purpose of being listed or blue check marked and will proudly be a Susan Lucci of Twitter for the duration without skipping a damn beat. The receipts speak for themselves and I have plenty of them, plus I feel y’all’s love and support every single day. 🔥
But since we’re on the subject, I have some thoughts...

Where are the POC finalists?
Many of us did great work this year and these four are among them.

But while I support the work of all these people and we follow each other, I am disturbed at the whiteness of this list when black women in particular did so much critical work.
The #Resistance is a vast array of people. Eliding POC from recognition is a serious lapse which I hope the finalists themselves will speak out about.

We cannot, as a movement, ignore or dismiss the work POC, most notably black women, are contributing.
#ResisterOfTheYear
I won't make a list here--I don't want to accidentally leave anyone off and there are so many voices who matter to me--but there are POC I read every day and I am certainly shocked that someone who has been in the forefront of the movement like @docrocktex26 isn't a finalist.

I need to say a couple of things while I have been retweeting all this, But first I need to thank .@MarkAmesExiled , @yashalevine , @mtracey and .@TheWarNerd and somewhat give props to Amy Martin of Empire Files, for exposing the lies we have seen for the last several years.
The next thing I want to say is I am for the Military. I have many friends who have who have served, and will continue to serve. I pray for them, and their safe return home with their families and loved ones.
And I want to make this very clear. Before i continue - before I say another word. There is such a thing and still is a thing called White Supremacy. Period. There is no such thing as White Privilege. There was such a thing as a "Patriarchal" structure but that has weakened.

THREAD ABOUT #FBR:

For those who are new to Twitter "#resistance" let's talk about all these people collecting FBRs and not-so-hidden FBRs. The not-so-hidden ones are those 50 person "we love our own group!" threads that never go away.

Some history: I was told that FBRs

1/
began around 2015ish when an organized group of anti-Trump twitter accts started a "geek" resistance team. i think it was called "SVRU" or like. That group did FBRs to teambuild AND to amplify their political messaging and calls to action [CTA = "call Congress abt X"]

2/
That group of "geek" accounts and others eventually imploded. That big group broke into 4-5 hashtagged groups, incl GeeksResist, HeroesResist, DumbledoresArmy [now WWWResist] LibertyTree. Geeks later split into RebelScum and current GeeksResist - who often hide their affiliation

1/ Remember Cindy Sheehan and "Camp Casey"? Well, at least George W. Bush had the sense to own a ranch where the locals actually liked him. Unlike Jerry Brown, who's retiring to a rural county that never voted for him.
2/ If I thought the media would cover it, I'd set up "Camp Bigley" - named after the homeless woman crushed to death by CalTrans - and demand that Gov. Brown build affordable housing on his luxury solar-powered ranch.

calmatters.org/articles/colus…
3/ Jerry Brown presided over the Hepatitis A outbreak, the rise in homelessness and the affordable housing crisis, and yet he's retiring to a county where no one wants him, to land that has been occupied by his family since the 19th century.

IDENTIFYING RUSSIAN INFILTRATOR TROLL ACCOUNTS

Thread/

During and now after the midterms, we saw the proliferation of Russian Infiltrator Trolls trying to embed themselves in the #Resistance in order to sabotage the primary process.

Here are a few of the Russians' tells.
1/
IDENTIFYING RUSSIAN INFILTRATOR TROLL ACCOUNTS

The name:
Older Russian troll accounts often had serial numbers in their handle (i.e. Jenny8675309).

Most Russian accounts now "overshare" and give faux full names in a way no American would, because it would be self-doxxing.

2/
IDENTIFYING RUSSIAN INFILTRATOR TROLL ACCOUNTS

Not every account that jumps or starts #FBR threads is a Russian, but Russians LOVE #FBR threads, because they can gain access to many #Resisters if they gain the trust of just one or two. Be careful who you endorse, please!
