Only if Nigerians know the level of lawlessness perpetuated at the DSS in the name of "order from above", we will understand the daner of having a tyrant who has no iota of respect for human right or dignity. The level of arrogance and confidence of the DSS to unlawfully #Thread
...detained innocent Nigerians is disgustingly obvious in their manner of operation and approach. Anthony Okolie who happened to be my cellmate at the DSS even got lucky to have spent "only 10weeks" for doing nothing according to a Senior "Intelligent Officer"...
Till now, no one including Anthony, knows his offence, he was only released with the usual sentence "You're now forgiven". I can also recalled a man who spent 4years for only receiving a phone call from a suspected BH member, his property sold out by siblings and wife already....

The Devil Rays went down to Houston
They were looking for a game to steal
They were in a bind, because the series was tied and they were willing to make a deal
When they came across this young arm throwing fire and spinning it hot
The Rays jumped up on a hickory bat and said “Boy let me tell you what”
“I bet you didn’t know it, but we are ball players too...
And if you care to take a dare, I’ll make a bet with you
Now you throw pretty hard Boy, but give the Rays their due
I bet a trophy of gold, against your soul, cuz I think I’m better than you”

The boy said “my names Garrett, and it might be a sin
But I’ll take your bet, you’re gonna regret
Because I’m the best that’s ever been

This fairy story pushed by Boris Johnson claiming it is lack of patriotic faith which somehow has brought Brexit to it’s knees really is pulling the wool over our eyes. I ask you this. Why did the Brexit architects think so little of the UK and British influence all those years?
Do they believe their own press that their public policy failings were the fault of EU law? Do they believe their own press that the UK was a victim, a prisoner of the the EU whilst at the same time being
so important and powerful that the 27 partners would roll over and give them absolutely everything they want? The truth (complex and nuanced) of our relationship with the EU is a long way from the simplistic banana and kipper rubbish fed to the “masses” by Johnson & co.

A few hours ago after so much deliberation and attempts at exploitation, the members of the #TakeItBack Movement arrested for pasting @YeleSowore’s posters have been released from kirikiri prison where they were remanded after being granted bail. #ReformOurCriminalJusticeSystem
The injustice done to these people will not be overlooked or swept under the carpet. Video clips and audio recordings of the exploiters and oppressors at the area F police command and Magistrate court will soon be released and a petition will be filed on this brigandage.
It should be noteworthy that @YeleSowore’s supporters were the only ones arrested for doing what every support camps do and we can now confirm the attempts to subjugate his voice with the exclusion from the debate. @SaharaReporters take note. They are already campaigning for him.

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.
#DemSenate2020 #DemsWork4USA #DemFuture #ForThePeople
Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

Ignore the polls and get out there and #Vote on November 6th. Relying on polling is a relic of a time gone by.
I’m not saying looking at @FiveThirtyEight’s model and charts and stuff isn’t cool, because it is and provides some insight. But no matter what the numbers say, it’s most certainly NEVER an excuse to not #Vote because you feel your peeps are a “lock”
Need nothing further than to point to 2016. Which by the way, @FiveThirtyEight didn’t really have wrong, but the “selected not elected” mindset existed before 2016. Why else would over 100 million people choose NOT to participate in their civic duty to choose their leaders.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

To win the House and make history on November 6, we knew we needed to mobilize, engage, and activate key African American, Hispanic, and young voters.

So we built an aggressive, state-of-the-art digital program that rose to the occasion.

We interviewed people like Cecilia ⬇️⬇️
Cecilia is a single mom who works two minimum-wage jobs. But her daughter’s pre-school and routine checkups put her in debt. So she is voting for a change in Congress.

We’re sharing her story across a wide range of digital platforms. Take a look at her :15 cut:
Julieta moved to America to make a better life for her kids. Her 27-year-old daughter, Evelyn, has a good job but still can’t afford to live alone. They’re voting for a change.

(Makes note to ask @lynnstahl7 to make a new t-shirt saying "Impolite Arrogant Woman" on the front and "blah blah blah" on the back.)

John Kelly Called Elizabeth Warren An "Impolite Arrogant Woman" In An Email… via @jasonleopold #WeAreTheMob
I was joking about the t-shirt but y'all weren't kidding!

So, @lynnstahl7 whipped these up right quick.

All proceeds go toward @BlueWaveCS🌊 final 20-day push to get Dems elected. #WeAreTheMob #ImpoliteArrogantWoman #FridayFeeling #FridayMotivation

.@lynnstahl7 has designed not only @BlueWaveCS' website, but all of the "mob" gear you need to go out and protest the GOP's #CultureOfCorruption, too.
They aren't going to just give us the house back, y'all. We're going to have to #TakeItBack. #WeAreTHEMob…

But seriously, this #Khashoggi story is scary. Jared Kushner is biffles with the crown prince and his father in law calls the press the “enemy of the people.” We need answers to this.
Like, people are over here listening to Kanye West give a soliloquy in the Oval Office while Kush sits there smiling to the camera. This is the news story today. Swift vs West II.
A hurricane hit Florida that Florida has never seen before. In OCTOBER. And the lower third is a Kanye quote that says Drumpf “saved the planet” days after the UN said we’re all dead in 20 years. Not 2,000, not 200, 20.

Is that a threat? Because that sure sounds like a threat.

Please report and block @FreedomGetuSome for threats of violence against peaceful protesters exercising their first amendment rights.

BTW: women have been protesting in the South for generations. #WeAreTHEMob
Aww, he deleted it. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

The internet is forever, @FreedomGetuSome!

#WeAreTheMob your president warned you about.

Our next mob meeting is at the polls on November 6.

Not sure if you've heard, but we already had a "race war" in the south.

You lost.

Still, you display your confederate flag. Might as well be a white flag of surrender.

I feel sorry for you, but I'm too busy feeling sorry for them.

Of all the 2018 state-level elections, NC’s may be the MOST IMPORTANT.

The GOP has taken over the state with naked power grabs and voter suppression tactics.


If you have any friends/family/followers in NC, spread this thread.
In NC, Dems currently hold a 4-3 advantage on the State Supreme Court. 1 seat is up for election.


She faces 2 GOPers after a power grab by the NC GOP backfired. It’s a complicated story. Your vote is not.

Elect Anita.
There are 6 constitutional amendments on the NC ballot, all put there by the GOP in an attempt to grab power, enrich the 1%, assault voting rights, and stoke right-wing turnout.

Today’s vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was disappointing, with an impact that will reverberate for decades to come. In particular, Mr. Kavanaugh’s confirmation sends a clear message to women and girls: you don’t matter. #BelieveSurvivors #TakeItBack
The GOP has appointed a man who believes birth control is abortion and that abortion is illegal to the highest court in the land, an institution that is meant to protect and represent the freedoms of all people -- men, women, and children of every race, religion, and ethnicity.
Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court will have devastating consequences for communities across the United States for decades to come.

Sexual assault is about power as all thinking peoples know.

Kavanaugh has power.

Dr. Ford does not.

Here you see the primary problem in our system.

A power structure that is abhorrently skewed to the already powerful.

Stay with me here, this one's a doozy.
I want you to think of a case about five years ago. In Florida a kid got drunk, slaughtered some folks on the side of the road and got slap on the wrist.

He claimed "afluenza," sayin' he was too RICH to understand what he'd done.

And it WORKED.

He had rich parents, who on the state level had plenty of political influence. They had some real power. His parents hired expensive attorneys and experts, spent a bunch of money, and I assume favors, and he got off.

Paul Ryan’s super PAC is under fire for weaponizing @SpanbergerVA07’s private personal records from her service in the CIA and law enforcement.

She’s not the only candidate that needs your help facing lies from that same super PAC.

Let’s take a look👀…
In Colorado, Paul Ryan’s super PAC came after @JasonCrowCO6.

REALITY CHECK: “Republicans know Jason Crow’s service with and for veterans is an asset, so they’re attacking it. If this is the best they’ve got, shame on them.”
#CO06 #TakeItBack #RedToBlue…
In Maine, Paul Ryan’s super PAC came after @golden4congress.

His super PAC’s ad zooms in on Golden’s tattoo to “tie it to his politics” even though his tattoo pays tribute to his tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
