#BlackHistoryMonth starts today: a time to honor African Americans and their powerfully important contributions to our country. All month, we’ll be celebrating black women & the barriers they've broken – often in the face of systemic racism.
Let’s start #BlackHistoryMonth by honoring Fannie Lou Hamer: a fierce civil rights leader. Fannie Lou championed women’s rights, voting rights & workers' rights. She endured violence to help thousands of people register to vote & fight illegal segregation. washingtonpost.com/news/retropoli…
Today on her birthday, we celebrate a powerfully important voice in the fight for racial justice: #RosaParks. Her courageous act on a Montgomery bus changed the civil rights movement & showed our country the power of protest. cnn.com/2018/12/01/us/… #BlackHistoryMonth

#VoterSuppression has been a big part of the story of this #Election2018, with attention focusing on the statewide issues in Georgia and North Dakota in particular. We should also remember that voter suppression is--and always has been--especially potent at the local level.
Efforts to remedy discrimination often take the form of state or federal laws, which can distract us from the fact that the problems them aim to rectify very often originate with the block captains, poll workers, and local party bosses who intimidate potential voters.
Voter suppression was endemic in the Jim Crow South--the Klan, Citizens Councils & other whites terrorized African Americans who registered to vote, voted, or ran for office. The Civil Rights Act of 1965 was a federal response to that systemic disenfranchisement.

WATCH: @SenWarren is on the Senate floor right now talking about Jeff Sessions's disastrous first year as Attorney General: cs.pn/2slLOZR
.@SenWarren: "Last year, every single Republican voted to confirm Jeff Sessions—a man deemed too racist to hold a federal court judgeship in 1986—to lead the agency charged with defending justice for all Americans."
.@SenWarren: In 1986, Corretta Scott King warned us that Jeff Sessions had used the awesome power of his office as an Alabama prosecutor to chill the free exercise of the vote by African Americans. As Attorney General, he’s continued that crusade.

#LSM #LyingSycophantMedia that will actively hide #Truth and invent/support #FakeNews, such as #RussiaCollusionLie

#CognitiveDissonance & #Tribalism that affect ability of "other side" to accept uncomfortable #TRUTH
3. So #POTUS needed to generate bullet-proof evidence of involvement by #DOJ/#FBI in the #Treason of the #Cabal/#DeepState...in part b/c they themselves could block/prevent the #TRUTH
...and in part b/c they had tried to destroy much of the evidence.
