The far and religious right is so scared of my transgenderness that they need to take away all my rights to try and keep me down. Now that's power. And they will still fail #transrights
Nothing can erase me. Nothing can keep me down. Cancer couldn't keep me down, transitioning couldn't keep me down. Anyone who tries will ultimately fail.
Also, it is my sincerely held belief that a higher power created me as a transwoman and any infringement of my rights or denial of any public services related to my transness is a violation of my religious liberty

W.P.(C) No. 000234 - / 2018
Court 3, Item 1
Facts: Letter Petition & Pil Matters : Others
Upon perusal of the status reports dated 25.7.2018 and 30.8.2018 filed by the CBI.
We find that there is sufficient material on record at this stage to raise a presumption that the CGL (Combined Graduate Level) Examination 2017 and CHSL (Combined Higher Secondary Level) Examination 2017 were tainted.

It has been 9 years since the #SupremeCourt’s disgraceful 5-4 #CitizensUnited decision.

The damage this ruling has inflicted on our democracy is undeniable. It is time to choose to be on the side of the American people over sleazy #darkmoney & special interests.
Senator McConnell and the #Republicans recognized long ago that restoring power to the people would mean losing their own.…
Looks like @Senatemajldr’s #darkmoney donors are growing uneasy about the push by @HouseDemocrats to rein in slimy special interest groups, which have gone largely unchecked since #CitizensUnited.

#QAnon #QAlert @HuberHammerQ

Q Thread — Friday December 21, 2018

2) #Q posts a graphic from the #FakeNews WaPo, capturing the hysterical delusion which the MSM shows towards @realDonaldTrump.

Shifts in narrative always align w/anti-TRUMP sentiment. As @GenFlynn stated, “...the journalists we have in our media did a disservice to themselves”
3) “Why did HUSSEIN install traitors at the highest levels of our Gov't?”

#Q summarizes for us the secret 16 year plan that would transition HUSSEIN >> HRC >> /_\ and subsequent Globalist enslavement.

The destabilization of our MIL was a cornerstone in making this reality.

#SupremeCourt questions Govt and CVC in #CBIvsCBI: "Why not be completely fair? What's the difficulty in consulting the Selection Committee? It is better to consult the Selection Committee than not to consult."
#CBIvsCBI: "The essence of every government action is what's the best for administration. It is not only a question of adherence to law but better adherence to law," #CJI tells Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.
#CBIvsCBI: The Court adds even if exigencies occur, is it not advisable to go to the Committee at some stage? "This hasn't happened overnight and the AG said this yesterday. If the Govt and CVC tolerated this since July, then why not go to the Selection Committee?"asks SC.

1/8 We need to ask ourselves one question today.

Are we better off than we were two years ago?

My answer is YES!

#Democrat answer is NO! Why? They hate @POTUS. Plus they hate their power over us is being taken away. They want us to live their way, not what we want.

2/8 So how do they want us to live?

First, repeal tax cuts for individuals and corporations, and bring back regulations. That will stop our economy, send jobs back overseas, decrease wages again, and 2% GDP will again be normal. I don’t want that.
3/8 They also want open borders. That will result in more illegals either taking our jobs or living off our dime with free healthcare and welfare. Not to mention the increased crime, violence and drugs it will bring to this country.

Those who doubted the intentions of BJP of making Ram Mandir at Ayodhya, here’s what they should see.
Under CM Yogi Adityanath, the preparations for making #RamMandir already started. Jai Shri Ram🙏

#MondayMotivation #AyodhyaRamMandir
राम मंदिर के समर्थन में सनी देओल की एक फ़िल्म आ रही है...
देखना इंटरवल में पॉपकॉर्न कम और बर्नोल ज्यादा बिकेगी😃
#मंदिर_वहीं_बनाएंगे #AyodhyaRamMandir

Those who ask, will making Ram Mandir solve the problem of unemployment and poverty etc?

RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat has the perfect reply;
“Will not making Ram Temple solve the problems of India?”

Jai Shri Ram 🙏

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

Hon’ble SC: “...there is no data collection on the movements of such individuals, when they avail benefits under Section 7 of the Act thereby ruling out the possibility of creating their profiles.” (Pg 552 of the landmark judgment)

Like former McCain adviser @SteveSchmidtSES, I have a hard time believing Ed Whelan when he says he didn’t coordinate his crackpot “doppelganger” theory with #Kavanaugh, the @WhiteHouse, and @SenateGOP.
Whelan has long been at the center of the @FedSoc’s secretive & powerful inner circle. He’s close friends with #Kavanaugh & has been scheming with Leonard Leo about how to salvage this fast-sinking nomination.…
They’ve all been pushing the insulting theory that Dr. Ford was just “mixed up,” and Whelan somehow got Ford’s name before it was ever published.…

The #SupremeCourt gives too many indications of having been captured by the far right. In case after case, the five #Republican-appointed justices band together with no Democratic appointee, and over 90 percent of the time deliver huge wins for Republican and corporate interests
That pattern leaves Americans to wonder which of their rights, freedoms, and protections the Roberts Court may sign away next.
During his hearings, #Kavanaugh could have pledged to help buck that trend, and reassured those with pre-existing conditions, women, consumers, workers, vulnerable communities, or victims of pollution.
