THREAD: A lesson on DNC primaries, voter engagement and recruitment, and how to deal with negative press or social media commentary about your candidate. This will become more and more important as time goes on, but it's already become a borderline recruitment crisis. (1)
#YangGang is in it to win it. That's why we win every online poll, why the media comment on the enthusiasm of @AndrewYang's supporters constantly, and why we're able to trend hashtags like it ain't no thang. But there's a dark side to enthusiasm, and it's becoming a threat. (2)
If someone backing another candidate approaches you with an aggro comment, how much do you love it? I know we've gotten into it with Berners and MAGA chuds left and right, but we can't afford to rabidly attack ANYONE right now, especially as Yang rises in popularity. (3)

The thing that frustrates me most about the #YangMediaBlackout is that a RUMOR about @DevalPatrick or @MikeBloomberg or @HillaryClinton gets more news cycles than @AndrewYang and @TulsiGabbard actually participating in the race put together.

Just when I think
#YangGang can no longer be ignored, another excuse to ignore us pops up out of the woodwork!!!

When these people fail and drop out, they will ALSO be stealing media time from us.

11 weeks to Iowa, and the following news cycles have yet to happen:

(1) Julian Castro dropping out
(2) Cory Booker dropping out

(3) Kamala Harris dropping out - and THIS media cycle will probably last 2-3 days, too, with lots of shocked "what happened?!?" click-bait

(4) Deval Patrick's kickoff event

(5) Deval Patrick dropping out

(6) Amy Klobuchar running short on money

What does Ifa say about getting women involved in ”important” business decision making?

You might have to think twice before you cut your off your woman from important business decision making, and here is why;

A thread!
Today is another great day bubbling with enthusiastic efforts to secure the bag in all our business transactions and service delivery.

You may want to look closely at what Ifa says about getting your wife/patner involved in ”Important” business decision making this new week.
Firstly, Ifa negates the preconceived notion that a wife should permanently sit at home without having any say in the husbands business or business decision making process.

Ifa says the end is disastrous and at such one might not be able to find succor when it is too late.

Hey #YangGang

I wanted to make a small thread clarifying that exchange between Pete Buttigieg and our newest Yangster Tulsi Gabbard.

Pete claimed the Syrian war wasnt about regime change.

The reality is very different.
This war, like all the rest, is about money and geopolitical power.

Saudi Arabia is a major enegtgy producer and exporter in the global economy. Their ruling elites are from an extreme Sunni Islamic sect known as wahhabism.

They are arch enemies with Shia lead Iran and Syria.
Recently, the Saudis have looked to expand their natural gas exports to Europe. Doing so would require building a pipeline that runs through Syria. Compliance with this business idea would require regime change, as current president Bashar Assad is a Shia Muslim.

Been thinking about @AndrewYang’s social media strategy. He almost invariably avoids commenting on the news cycle.

Why? A few reasons (thread):

#YangGang #SecureTheBag @yangganghub @scottsantens
1) Trump controls the news cycle. That’s how he won in ‘16; he leveraged their attention. Now they hang on his every thought.
2) Nearly every other candidate is a link in the media chain. They comment dutifully on every Trump controversy. They react, and in doing so, they follow Trump’s lead. He sets the tone. It’s his world, the Democrats are just living in it.

Why @AndrewYang’s campaign is brilliant: a thread, with predictions at the end. #YangGang #Yang2020 @scottsantens

After 2016, I felt disenfranchised. All the emotional energy I put into the Sanders campaign — and then Clinton — felt wasted.
So in ‘17 and ‘18, I started looking into what went wrong. I had become a boilerplate social justice progressive up until that point. My gut told me that we had been blindsided by Trump because we fundamentally misread the room.
So I started paying attention to political outsiders who challenged liberal and conservative orthodoxies.

Finally, in 2018, I read an interview with Yang. He had decided to run for President on UBI. At the time, his website was threadbare — he seemed like an intriguing blip.

One hot take
1) We use "conservative" for the wrong group of people in the English-speaking world. The pro-status quo faction in English language politics is invariably progressive.
2) Xi has way less power in the Chinese central leadership than Western media reports indicate but you'll never hear them break that narrative because reporters are too lazy to study the situation in Mandarin and audiences are too lazy to build a new model that isn't "Stalin".

Women's labor has been purposely artificially cheapened or valued at zero by the managerial/capitalist class for a few reasons, and the #FreedomDividend undercuts all of them from several angles while also laying the groundwork for a kinder society (thread).
1) If women stay home, they provide the material foundation from which workers emerge. That "free" female labor allows the employer to outsource the cost of raising and feeding and supporting laborers.
2) Employers have no incentive to let go of the social illusion that women's pay is "supplementary" to men's (whether the woman in question is married to a working spouse or not). Hiring women and paying them less gives employers more bargaining power vis-a-vis male employees.

So you've decided to vote for @AndrewYang.

But what else can you to do help him win?


#Yang2020 #YangGang #HumanityFirst

For new donors, as little as $1 counts, and will increase Yang's individual donor count, which is a crucial metric.

Money is the fuel that campaigns run on. The more money raised, the farther he can go. Fundraising also = press coverage.…
2. Donate again!

If you've donated in the past, please consider making another contribution, and/or setting up recurring donations. This is important. If you can afford to chip in another $20, it moves the needle. #SecureTheBag…
