"Every dictator, when the economy finally betrays them, must create the image of a besieged fortress." - @Kasparov63 on why dictators create national enemies.

#PutinCon
In America, consider how Trump uses this strategy. For Trump, the alleged #FakeNews media is the national enemy.

#PutinCon
teaches #PutinCon about the '99 Russian apartment bombings, an episode where Putin's gov't bombed his own people & framed the Chechens.

It was Russia's reichstag event & Russia's autocratic history since can only be viewed with this context.

Let’s talk Trump & Drugs.

1) On Wed Jan 10, 2018, Trump signed the Interdict act. It is an acronym for “International Narcotics Trafficking Emergency Response by Detecting Incoming Contraband with Technology”

During the signing he made some interesting ....
2) comments about how to solve the issue:
"There is an answer. I think I actually know the answer, but I'm not sure the country is ready for it yet," he said, before looking around at some of the lawmakers. "Does anybody know what I mean? I think so."

As #HeirsOfLiberty it is our solemn duty to honor the founding words and principles of our Constitution:

“We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice and ensure domestic tranquility...
/1
“... provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
/2
Written words are precision instruments. They say what they mean, not what we wish. Words have historical context we cannot ignore because it conflicts with our agenda.

It would be so easy to descend into cynicism. We’ve witnessed Republicans working hard to obstruct justice and protect 45* from himself. Republicans have – to my observation – contributed absolutely nothing to prevent the Kremlin from interfering in our elections again./1
This reckless sprint toward authoritarianism feels eerily similar to the rise of Fascism in Germany. We judged the Germans harshly for not stopping the Hitlerian apocalypse of the 30s and 40s. The Germans have been patient, but I wonder if they feel a sense of schadenfreude?/2
We find ourselves forced endure a dark era of rampant corruption, state-run media, attacks by the political establishment on the #RuleofLaw and the re-emergence of discriminatory practices, in both the public and private sectors./3

We find ourselves once again in the position of hoping "principled" Republicans will stand up for the #RuleOfLaw.

I know you see dozens of threads every day. You're busy like me & can't read all of them, but please stay with me on this. I think we all need a refresher course./1
I wrote that meme back in February of 2016, when it became apparent the Republicans in the legislature had no intention of honoring their sacred duty to be a check on the Executive./2
Since then, they passed one law the President did not approve of, sanctioning Russia. As we all know, the deadline has passed and the President has failed to comply with Congress' mandate./3

THREAD: #FBI DepDir McCabe *confirms* in testimony that @Comey briefed him on *at least 2* conversations w/Trump:

👉🏼Jan dinner when Trump asked for loyalty🙄
👉🏼Feb meeting when Trump asked Comey to go easy on Misha🇷🇺Flynn

1/
cnn.com/2017/12/21/pol…
Comey previously testified that he briefed some of his “senior colleagues at the FBI” about his #loyalty conversation w/Trump.🤔

McCabe testified that Comey informed him of conversations he had w/Trump soon after they happened‼️🤗 2/
No surprise, McCabe’s testimony appears to corroborate Comey's prior account, including Trump's INSANE ask for a loyalty pledge‼️

Of course, Trump now denies that he ever made this ridiculous ask.🙄 3/

1. Political, Spiritual, Cultural & even Businesses as movements are ENTITIES
Human beings give "Birth" to them then need to NURTURE them so they may grow
WHAT do you feed them?
Political=VOTES
Spiritual=FAITH
Cultural=PRACTICE
Business=PROFITS
2. Politicians go after Donors & their $, lobbyists & so on to build political machines to do ONE THING=Get VOTES. Their Machines thrive on & perpetuates itself off reelection.
Without the Votes to feed it, the machine loses it influence, sputters & dies
3. Spiritual Movements require Faith, the more devout & diligent it's Believers the stronger that Movement & Faith grows. Faith provides the Believer comfort & solace in the face of Life's travails & hardships & there fore perpetuates itself
Losing Faith diminishes in turn.

1. So most American Adults are unarmed I'm hearing. Pepper Spray, Stun Guns & hand weapons like the Kubotan are easily available & under $20
2. Yet only 1 American Adult in 20 appears to carry any device of any sort for self defense. This is stunning to me.
3. As a boy growing up in South Texas in the 70's EVERY boy had a pocketknife similar to this one, a Woodsman Lockblade. Handy & Sharp!
