Last weekend, during a discussion about Israel’s contributions to the US, the topic of Khrushchev’s Speech came up @SeanDurns. Long thread incoming.

(You don't have anything else to do while waiting for Israeli election results, right?) 1/
In Feb 1956, Nikita Khrushchev, then Secretary General of the Communist Party of the USSR, delivered a secret speech to Soviet delegates at the Kremlin, lasting about 4 hrs and no bathroom breaks. 2/
In this speech Khrushchev described Stalin’s crimes in gory detail. Murder, massacre, mayhem. Delegates were stunned. They wept. Stalin was a hero, right? He *punched Nazis* bigtime. 3/

@SecPompeo says that the Taliban tried to renegotiate their deal with the US and it made "no sense" for the Taliban to be rewarded for bad behavior w. a meeting at Camp David. #SOTU @jaketapper
@SecPompeo @jaketapper Adds that we've been killing the Taliban throughout these negotiations. Says we'll keep doing that -- doesn't define what the "right force levels" are
@SecPompeo @jaketapper Says may reopen negotiations if the Taliban is capable and willing to deliver on commitments.

@POTUS you stole Bill Clinton’s lines!…
“All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country.”

“The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers.”

Let’s talk about racist presidents. [Long, long, long thread]
The condemnations of Trump’s latest racist statements are heartening. And: those who say his comments were “not who we are” or “un-American”—though well-meaning—lack historical perspective.
Racism was a cornerstone of this nation’s founding. And racism has been a foundational operating principle for the vast majority of our presidents. We shouldn’t be so quick to venerate our best intentions without also interrogating our impact.

This my friend @ArmyofNaveed. Naveed came to the US when he was 4, after 9/11 he decided to join the military. After 4 years of service, he went onto college and in 2016 he was @MichelleObama guest for the #SOTU. Immigrants like @Naveed are what make this country great. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Also he has a really cool first name 👍🏽
This is @tedlieu. He immigrated from Taiwan and grew up in Ohio. Ted has served in the USAF since 1995 and has served as an elected official since 2011. He is why immigrants make this country great. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

[1/9/19] AOC thinks the government shutdown should end immediately because her staff can’t get their taxpayer-funded, government-issued laptops to the “caseworkers” on her staff.
AOC is an idiot.
Just like with the salary question, Ocasio-Cortez has dodged attempts by reporters to find out why she allowed her campaign employees to work without health care insurance.

She has however made time to dance with notorious race-baiter Al Sharpton:

Cory Booker brought lies & hypocrisy to his CNN Townhall last night!

DJT condemned "Nazis" — Booker is the 1 that refused to condemn blatant, bigoted hate! WATCH 👇

He also continued misleading the public about the greatest threat — STILL Islamic terrorism globally.

#TrollTracker 1/: Mike Pompeo's @instagram posts have been relentlessly spammed by accounts posting duplicate anti-American comments ever since he announced the Poland summit on January 11.…
#TrollTracker 2/: Most accounts were rarely ever active before the announcement came, @hall__melissa and @KaranKanishk find. A spurt in activity following the announcement indicates they were part of coordinated effort to counter the summit's anti-Iran narrative.
#TrollTracker 3/: The team studied one particular post in which Pompeo praised the president's #SOTU speech. Four of the most frequently commenting accounts on the post have profiles extremely similar to each other—indicative of puppet account behavior.

#Thread on Trump, Pompeo and Pence's irresponsible banalization of the words "Genocide" and "Holocaust" at the State of the Union address (#SOTU) , the #WarsawSummit and #MSC2019.
1) Raphael Lemkin, known as the father of the Genocide Convention, rejected the terms "Barbarity", "Mass murder", "Denationalization", "Germanization", "Magyarization" and many others to depict Hitler's attempt to annihilate the Jewish population.
2) He wanted a word that would - according to @AmbPower44 in her book "A Problem from Hell" - "connote a practice so horrid and so irreparable that the very utterance of the word would galvanize all who heard it". To Lemkin words mattered. So he came up with the word "Genocide".

1. At the recent #SOTU address, women legislators dressed in white attempting to make a "striking visual statement" about how the Trump administration has handled issues important to women, from health care to equal pay. Oddly the visual backfired on these #Democrat woman.
2. Why did they sit stone faced silent for accomplishments like catching sex traffickers and putting these creeps in jail, freeing young girls from sexual slavery, and the remarkable fact that under Trump unemployment for woman is now at an all time low. Why no applause?
3. The only time these #Democratic #Hypocrites rejoiced is when @realDonaldTrump pointed out that there were more woman in congress than every before in history. They praise only their own accomplishment of merely being elected, not any concrete results of any of their efforts.

Thread: Follow the watch, 15:15 (3:15), Hammer Time, Camp David, Shutdown deadline, Whitaker hearing

1) POTUS tweet today with [H] instead of [b] was sent at timestamp 3:15 (15:15) which is the same time on the watch that Q dropped with the directive to “Follow the watch” #QAnon
2) In the Q drop that showed a watch with the time “3:15” (Today’s POTUS timestamp) Q also asks if POTUS will be at Camp David tomorrow. Strangely enough, MSM is reporting that a bipartisan team is heading to Camp David for negotiations ahead of the 2/15 shutdown deadline #QAnon
3) Some sources are reporting Trump will be in attendance (shown below), while others are not. Which makes even more interesting the questionin the drop with the 3:15 watch, Q asks “Will POTUS be at Camp David tomorrow?” #QAnon

1. So @emmillerwrites and I published this on Mon, but it’s an important story that deserves a full thread treatment.

It’s about how the Trump admin is dismantling a decades-old, largely faith-based system for resettling refugees, and the people it hurts.…
2. This is technically our second treatment of this topic, building off our first article from last year — both of which were timed around anniversaries of the travel ban, which was ALSO designed to halt the entry of ALL refugees into the country.…
3. But folks forget that in addition to the initial ban (which went through legal challenges), the Trump admin has DRASTICALLY reduced the number of refugees allowed in the U.S. — twice.

Refugee CAPS by fiscal year:

2017: 50K (lowered from Obama’s *110K*)
2018: 45K

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4374: Nancy Pelosi's Clap-Back to Donald Trump during the 2019 SOTU • #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #Clapback #DonaldTrump #NancyPelosi #SOTU #StateOfTheUnion
1/ On Tuesday, 5 February 2019, President Trump gave his second State of The Union Address.
2/ As you may have heard, the SOTU was delayed this year by Nancy Pelosi due to Donald Trump's shutdown of a large percentage of the U.S. federal government. And via her body language, Nancy Pelosi very much continued to steal the show.
