I'm going to use this as a thread on "fun" stuff within the Omnibus appropriations bill. Where to begin?

First, this bill is 4,155 pages long & was released after #Midnight. It's disgusting how Swamp legislators will not even attempt to read the bill's details. 1/
Nancy Pelosi said it best: We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it.

But before the bill passes, I'm going to highlight some things I think are of note or that I think are interesting.

Some GOP Senators are already touting how this bill spends less than @JoeBiden's request. That does not take into consideration the costs associated w/ supplemental appropriations & the PAYGO Waiver.

If & when @USCBO scores this bill, it will likely total $1.9 trillion. 3/

.@ksbw reports just now that @AsmRobertRivas staffer called their office and (insert my editorializing) screamed and yelled and KSBW (end editorializing) that Rivas WILL BE THE NEXT SPEAKER.

My take away? Rivas weakened himself. While he works to shore up support our paid

journalists should take a deep dive into Rivas and his longer term relationship with a corrupt @CASenCaballero, who while Mayor of #Salinas committed various crimes that I can document - and wrote about to US Attorney Kevin Ryan at the time. (Nothing happened).

Caballero, often with the "brothers Rivas" by her side, abused her role as Mayor and was deeply involved in many criminal corruption acts.

The largest of those was the @CityofSalinas deferred compensation PONZI. No official was investigated or prosecuted for this scam.

1/ On this final day of #BlackHistoryMonth & on this #CiteBlackWomenSunday, I am overflowing with gratitude as I share my first @NEJM publication.

🧵to reflect and give thanks

Without Sanctuary | NEJM…
2/ I am indebted to so many for this piece--but most especially, my patients. They are so much more than my muses. They are the ones that force me to confront myself & strive for something better; my greatest teachers; & are my true north when the why gets hard to see or remember
3/ This piece started as a tweet--a reflection from our first @CPSolvers AntiRacism in medicine podcast. So very grateful to @RheaBoydMD & @RRHDr for their wisdom & generosity of spirit which served as the prompt for my reflection & the words that followed

This is a copy of the bill that will be voted on tomorrow to give everyone 2k checks.

Written by @AOC and @RashidaTlaib. Cosponsored by @PramilaJayapal + @AyannaPressley + @IlhanMN.

This is a #squadbill.

Get ready to see a lot more in the future.…
For those who were asking what the progressives and #squad have been doing with their political capital, this is it. I’d say it’s a lot more important (and better strategy) than #forcethevote.

Shows they are going to be a force to be reckoned with for the long haul.
The entire Democratic Party is behind this bill. This is what political power looks like in action driven by progressive wing. Groundbreaking and I think this will be the first of many times in the next decade you see this. I’m pretty damn excited.

Reuter’s in 2009: Soros has financial links to Adbusters (Major Force Behind Occupy Wall Street). Hard to imagine Reuter’s writing anything like this piece today. LOTS of gems 💎…
Adbusters’ major funder—Tides Foundation—partners with Soros and Gates foundations, among other major liberal slush funds. Crazy Reuter’s allowed such connections to be published just a few years ago. They insinuate Soros/Gates behind the group now trying to overthrow Trump #OWH Image
Their stated goal is to “topple existing power structures”... Sinister stuff. This is a FOREIGN ENTITY! WHO ELSE IS FUNDING THEM??? #CCP #Iran #Russia Image

Senators will soon cross over to the House chamber where I will be seated in the press gallery for Trump's third #StateOfTheUnion. After weeks of no devices in the Senate press gallery, I will be happily bringing you live updates for @CourthouseNews
@CourthouseNews I will actually be standing, but after weeks of sitting perched over the Senate impeachment trial it will be a welcome mini leg day.
@CourthouseNews House hallways are packed as attendees file into their seats. Just spotted Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Senator James Lankford and other members, as well as lots of guests including children.

My heart is so full following an impactful and empowering 49th Annual @CBCFInc Annual Legislative Conference!

This year’s theme, “400 Years, Our Legacy Our Possibilities” celebrated Black history, resilience, joy, and success.
During the action-packed #cbcweek we partnered with local experts and community advocates to host a conversation on the plight of Black Immigrants and how we can continue to center the voice of the marginalized while we’re working toward comprehensive reform.
I also joined @angela_rye and my #squad-mates @AOC @AyannaPressley @RashidaTlaib for a talk about what’s more is needed to continually build sustainable progressive movements

Before I begin, first things first…
S/O to the #ancestors whose sacrifice is not lost on me. Blood. Sweat. Tears. Prayers. We do this work to honor them because we know it’s upon their shoulders that we stand…
One in particular is Dr. Bill Jenkins who transitioned in February. His work exposing the atrocities of the U.S. Public Health Service’s Tuskegee Syphilis Study is an example of how we should all speak truth to power.

1) Time to teach y'all a little something about strategery.

The art of winning by destroying your opponent's ability to win.
2) Let's start with something simple.

The AOC #Squad vs Pelosi.

Pretty clear fight. Ideological split, Dem civil war, all that fun shit.…
3) But... the election is over a year away. What happens if either side wins the Dem civil war? They'll be united under that common banner by the time the election rolls around.

Judge in Stone’s case was given the full unredacted MR.

Gates "continues to cooperate with the gov’t" #Stone #Craig

The MR could end the Trump presidency w/out impeachment #ShockandAwe

EG:”Last week SDNY filed 50 Sealed vs. Sealed cases.” #1MDB #TrumpFam etc

The Covode report ruined a presidency in 1860, the MR might do the same in 2020 & lead to a Dem victory.

LB: Alt-Right = Active Measures (AM) + RU 💰& amplified by RU trolls + coordinated RW media machine + guided by Conservative PR firms & think tanks + Bannon/Trump operatives + key @GOP Senate/Congressional staff = sources for MSM = control the news cycles/narratives

In June 2016, Rob Goldstone emailed DonJr. promising incriminating information about HRC as part of a RU gov’t effort to help the Trump campaign.

Did the White House via @RajShah45 leak identity of Dr. Ford to @GOP operatives hours before the WaPo story broke?

‼️Nationwide Women’s Walk out Mon 1 pm EDT to 10 pm PDT

👉🏼@GOP are actively dehumanizing woman via normalizing rape, sexual assault, limit access to birth control, sexual abuse of children & likely next decriminalize domestic violence, like Putin did in RU.
