1/ @voiceofsandiego suspects @SDDistAtty @SummerStephan may be leaving the #Republican Party. Why? Read her rambling response: bit.ly/DA_Defects_Exh…

What is clear: #SanDiego is full of ambitious politicians who change party, office and/or districts to stay in/run for office.
2/ Related: 2 of 3 recent Chairs of @sandiegodems were "reformed" #Republicans

They changed their party registration then worked against #progressives when they run against #moderates. Women of color were especially impacted by moderate party policies & actions in 2018
3/ @sandiegodems used "member communication" $ to attack @CD4Monica @vivianmorenoSD in their elections

Both women won- despite institutional #Democrat opposition. Hopefully this teaches local Democrats about the power & need for #diversity & representation in #SanDiego politics

My open thoughts to my, your, OUR @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse
1) I am a Trumper until the bitter end! #Trump2020 #KAG #MAGA 🇺🇸
I am a pissed off #Californian #CA
That being said...
2)🇺🇸At your #NewMexico rally you said “I wish we could move the wall & let them have their open border”. #SanDiego
I am no #Snowflake and take this in jest, you are quite funny!
I’m here to tell you the LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS DO/DID WANT THE WALL!
#BuildTheWall
3) The ones who don’t are the criminal, cabal, lawless #Democrats that run our state #CA
It was a little disheartening to hear.
Millions of us, here, in #TheSwamp support you.

1/ A year ago in #California the work of #TheGeoGroup & #CoreCivic became apparent: they had been contributing to legislators for years, and operating private #immigrant detention facilities that the @ACLU & other accused of abuse.

Who accepted the money? Progressive Democrats.
2/ @TheGEOGroup & @CoreCivic understand how politics work: give money to the party in power. Hundreds of thousand to @California_Dem Party. Tens of thousands to Governor @JerryBrownGov All but one border-region legislator has taken their money. When they were finally caught...
3/ Once caught- some angrily attacked people who questioned their acceptance of private #prison money. They continue sharing it with family & friends, to fund campaigns, curry favor & develop more political power.

Hello Ms. Conway,

On Easter I was away from tech visiting my grandmother in Puerto Rico, which continues to suffer from the White House’s incompetent disaster response.

Are you trying to imply that I am less Christian? What was the point of you bringing this up on national TV?
I chose to use the word ‘incompetent’ when it comes to Trump’s response to Hurricane María & the 3,000 Americans who died on his watch, but that’s only because I had 280 characters.

There are plenty of other words too:
- Negligent
- Inept
- Inhumane
- Predatory

Take your pick.
“Corrupt” is a good one, too.

I’m curious, how do you spin ignoring and neglecting the largest mass death of people on American soil in decades, @KellyannePolls?

After all, the official count of 3,075 people is much bigger than the 64 number your admin clung to for so long.

In a two and a half years we have gone from a place where diversity was celebrated, to a place where hatred, bigotry, racism rears up being nudged by a nutter in the WH. This is not okay. As a Jew, I weep for what happened in #SanDiego yesterday & in #Pittsburgh six months ago.
As an American, I cry for what happened in #Charlottesville in August 2017. As a woman, I shed tears for a Muslim Congresswoman targeted by POTUS* and that hate tweet remains @jack #JackStopTheHate
As a human being, my heart breaks for how POC are treated by this regime stocked with crooked good old boys. As a citizen, I can’t bear that children are in concentration camps in Florida, in Texas along the border. All this demonizing to play to a base of bigots shatters me.

1/ Just last week, as Jews gathered around their #Passover tables to recount the story of our Exodus from Egypt, we read the passage of V’hi She’amda in which we recall how in each generation there have been those who have risen up against us and sought to deny the #Jewish
2/ …people’s right to exist. Tragically, this threat remains very real in our generation today.
3/

The murder of Lori Gilbert Kaye z”l in the #Chabad of #Poway synagogue in #SanDiego, California is but the latest in too long a list of recent antisemitic attacks on #Jews and #Jewish communities around the world.

1) BREAKING: Shooter at #SanDiego synagogue appears to be a white supremacist who described his hate for Jews & others in a letter. States he was inspired by #NewZealand shooter Brenton Tarrant and urges fellow white supremacists to carry out their own attacks.
2) In his letter, the likely attacker (name not yet released) says it took him four weeks to plan the shooting, and claims to have “scorched a mosque in Escondido with gasoline a week after Brenton Tarrant’s sacrifice and they never found shit on me.”
3) The letter also lists those that “inspire” him, including Adolf Hitler and Moon Man, a white supremacist meme character. To that point, the letter stresses the power of Internet to white supremacist community, urging them to “make memes, shitpost”

1/ Imagine if #SanDiego had constructed treatment ponds in the #Tijuana River estuary near #ImperialBeach instead of insisting on a "traditional" wastewater plant that has never been able to do its job?
Here is an article on that proposal from 1994: sdearthtimes.com/et0694/et0694s…
2/ Here is an example of a facility in Arcata that has created a wildlife sanctuary around similar treatment ponds, that are popular with birders, cyclists & runners. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcata_Wa…
3/ The #Tijuana River estuary is protected under the #RamsarConvention- an international agreement to protect critical habitats & the birds, fish etc. that rely on them to survive. Integrated ponds could provide clean water for the estuary & river. archive.ramsar.org/cda/en/ramsar-…

I just voted & was told, along with everyone else at the polling site that we're reg. to vote by mail but none of us are! Even our voter cards say we're not. We had to fill out paperwork & were told our votes won't be counted for 2 weeks.
#VoterSuppression @KUSINews @carldemaio
There was also a number of polling site violations taking place. Such as taking pictures & the line standing behind booths so our ballots can be seen by everyone. People were sitting all over the floors voting too. 🤦🏼‍♀️
#BeAVoter #ElectionDay2018
On a side note, I'm on crutches and unable to put any weight on my foot. The only ♿ booth was being used by non ♿ while I stood for 15 min on one leg waiting for a woman to finish voting. #ElectionDay #vote

I’ve tweeted about our @GlobalIrish communities in #SanDiego, #Seattle, #BayArea & tweeted throughout the visit to #LosAngeles but there are so many other fantastic organizations & communities in Western US celebrating their Irish heritage & links to Ireland. Here are a few ...
Did you know that #Portland is home to a beautiful cross commemorating the famine? Portland is also home to the wonderful @CorribTheatre, led by the fantastic Gemma Whelan, delivering high quality productions of contemporary Irish productions such as Charlie O'Neill's HURL.
I recently visited Salt Lake City & was delighted to meet the Hibernian Society there. Next year #Utah will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the #GoldenSpike - the completion of the transcontinental railroad - in which the Irish community in the US played such a prominent role.

Next we go down to the very south of the geographic area that we cover to #SanDiego where one of our partner organizations, @IrishOutreachSD, celebrated its 20th birthday last week! That’s me, Bernadette Cashman (founder), Amb @DanMulhall & Exec Dir Stephen Aherne!
#SanDiego has a vibrant & diverse Irish community including four @GAA_USA clubs who joined with us last year to send off the players of @USAWomenEagles before they went to Ireland for the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup! San Diego also hosts the annual West Coast Sevens competition.
#SanDiego is also home to one of the largest St Patrick’s Day parades west of the Rockys with over 30k people lining the streets. The parade is organised by the Irish Congress of #SoCal with support from the Friendly Sons, the House of Ireland & all the Irish organisations in SD

My Mother’s Last #Feminist Battle facebook.com/GregPalastInve…
The #SanDiego papers reported that mom joined the Coast Guard "Reserve." In fact, she was full-time uniformed military. ALL women who enlisted at the start of WWII were classified as "auxiliary reservists"—even those sent overseas, a slight later corrected by an Act of Congress.
Because my mom was only "reserve," the military was going to deny her a color guard and bury her only as a 'military spouse." My mother would have been furious — so I raised hell. sandiegouniontribune.com/obituaries/sd-…

Hello @ICEgov @CBPSanDiego @CBP there are 1500+ families, marching towards the border hopefully you are aware they plan on taking over, they think in large numbers they can’t be refused #BuildTheWall
The event is very well planned and funded sounds a bit like #sorosarmy though they have harmlessly named it a caravan #SanctuaryState #Takebackcalifornia
Call it whatever you want this is an invasion and they are headed right towards good old #SanctuaryState of California who is funding them? Do @AGBecerra @MayorOfLA @JerryBrownGov intend on letting all of them enter while our homeless crisis grows? @latimes
