Highlights fro #Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing on foreign interference via social media platforms:

"Election interference from abroad represents an intolerable assault on the democratic foundation this republic was built on" per @SenatorBurr
"It's also important that the American people know that these activities neither began nor ended with the 2016 elections" per @SenatorBurr "Foreign actors continue an aggressive and pervasive influence campaign against the #UnitedStatesofAmerica"
Efforts like those id'd by @facebook "creating events on our streets w/real #Americans unknowingly participating" adds @SenatorBurr

The Uphill Battle to Take the #Senate
We have a chance for Democrats to gain the #SenateMajority after the Nov elections. The balance is currently 51/49 (including 2 Indep’s.). We need turnover at least 2 GOP seats, w/o any losses. With losses, we will need to win more.
Senators serve for six years, divided into three ‘classes’. One-third of Senate seats are in play every two years, plus any vacancies for early resignations. This year there are two of the latter.
Unfortunately, in 2018, we have an uphill battle. There are 35 races, but 26 are for Democratic seats, and only 9 are GOP. And most of the latter are considered ‘safe’ for the incumbents. So, taking the Senate in 2018 is a daunting task.

The very conservative @weeklystandard editorial shocker:
"Only one president in history, Andrew Jackson, has ever been censured by #Congress, but #Republicans on the Hill would not be out of line in seeking a formal censure of Donald #Trump. [MORE]
weeklystandard.com/the-editors/ed…
[CONT 2]
"We understand that such a measure wld be largely symbolic. But symbols matter. It would be no small thing for congressional #Republicans to declare, in a formal manner, that a president who coddles and defends an anti-American despot doesn’t deserve their support." MORE
[CONT 3]
"Passage of a censure resolution by the House or #Senate wld be a powerful statement that #GOP leaders will not excuse a sitting president of either party openly crediting America’s enemies at the expense of its public servants—& of the truth."

GOOD DAY AMERICA & FRIENDS...! So much has happened this week. BUT there is so much more to do. Been thinking about heading to the print shop to have marathon-like tags for upcoming #POTUS rallies: Marathon tags can be pinned on the back of your shirts: #FAKENEWS! Thats it.
Imagine of GOP supporters at rallies with marathon-like tags pinned on in which ALL the cameras see is #FAKENEWS! Oh my...I think I'm gonna do it. Head to the local printers or search online for this sort of product. THEN, I'm going to research all upcoming #MidTerm rallies.

@realDonaldTrump @FoxNews 2/this led IOs to conclude that #Kremlin was quietly waging effort to map USA's telecommunications infrastructure perhaps preparing for an opportunity to disrupt it. #russia escalating #spygames report from June 2017 n @politico went unnoticed at the time @AriMelber

UNFAITHFUL SHEPHERDS

"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian #Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.

" Read the Senate’s executive summary of the CIA torture report
The report found that the methods used by the CIA were more brutal than the agency acknowledged either to Bush administration officials or to the public. "

1) Attribution to an #Anon. Not wholly my work. Poke holes where required.

“It's not a Budget it's an #Omnibus"

It’s not an official ‘Federal Budget.’ It’s an Omnibus bill.

Did @POTUS outsmart them yet again?

#QanonPosts #Qanon #TheStormIsHere #DrainTheSwamp #Q
2) Congress basically screwed themselves by not passing a formal budget. Per the Constitution, the #President must adhere to a budget set forth by #Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.

#PaulRyan #SenateChairman #Pelosi #Schumer #DrainTheDeepState
3) This is another one of those big Porkulus bills like they gave #Obama for his horrid 8 years. An #omnibusbill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent, but #Obama ignored them.

I'm back on the #soapbox. And I'm going to be on it a long time talking up #CitizensUnited until it sinks into the brain of everyone here. If we want a HOPE of restoring the #integrity of our #elections it MUST be overturned. #DarkMoney is overriding our voices in the ballot box.
#CitizensUnited was and is the nail in the coffin to any pretense of #democracy. How do you think this #IllegitimateRegime was installed? #DarkMoney is the major culprit. Then there was the #Russian interference, #Hacking, #VoterSuppression and #Gerrymandering.
A #PerfectStorm
We lost our voices this last #election that was a #coup. #WI alone suppressed 300K votes & that's just the tip of that iceberg. Throw in the #CitizensUnited #DarkMoney of #Adelson #Kochanistan #Mercerville et al #Russians #hacking #Gerrymandering & there you go. #Democracy dies.

#BLUEWAVE2018: IF THERE'S ONE THING YOU DO TODAY, READ & WATCH THIS!

308 days til the 2018 Midterm Elections. It's time to talk about HOW we take back the House & Senate.

THE STRATEGY MUST BE TWO-FOLD:

1. DEFEND BLUE SEATS. #KeepItBlue
2. FLIP RED SEATS. #FlipItBlue

[THREAD]
#SENATE: DEMs are at a "disadvantage" and ON THE DEFENSE.

DEMOCRATS and Independents must DEFEND 25 SEATS.

REPUBLICANS must only DEFEND 9 SEATS.

For a Majority, DEMS MUST KEEP ALL SEATS...and #FLIP2 BLUE.
#SENATE: TRUMP WON 10 STATES w/ SEATS DEMs MUST DEFEND.

Montana, North Dakota, Missouri, Wisconsin, Florida, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

HILLARY WON 1 STATE GOP MUST DEFEND...Nevada.

See competitive races below. Made BEFORE Franken's open seat.
