#TBT -- Yesterday I joined Senate Democrats to call on Pres Trump to invoke the #StaffordAct and consider disaster declarations that would free up funding to assist state & local governments in responding to this int’l #coronavirus health crisis.…
The #StaffordAct is named after the late Robert Stafford, a mentor of mine who was a giant of the Senate and a commanding figure in Vermont. Bob, a Republican, and Helen took Marcelle and me under their wings when I joined the Senate in 1974.
Bob and Helen and Marcelle and I became close friends, and Bob showed me that to do what is best for our country, we must set aside party labels and work together. Bob’s wisdom, calm demeanor, and ability to work across the aisle are sorely lacking in the Senate today.

“Markle might be the only royal to understand...what it could mean to be a working royal in the 21st century.A mixed-race American w/ a genuine desire to have global impact figured out that her in-laws...lack a sense of urgency & immediacy. They have a different concept of work.”
“She understood instantly the value of the royal family to the country’s civic and cultural identity, and she did her level best to carve out a role for herself, despite criticism, racism, sexism, and all the other isms that make notoriety a living hell.”

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday

Last Thursday, I got a fish bone stuck in my throat. A day later, I had developed a headache, my ear hurt and my throat was sore; I was very uncomfortable. By Saturday, it became unbearable so I decided to go see an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist.
When I arrived at the hospital, I told the lady at the front desk it was an emergency. I let her know what the problem was and she immediately arranged for me to see the doctor as soon as he became available.

I decided to use the wait time to respond to some emails.
Some minutes in, a nurse came to call me, I asked her to please bear with me for a minute or two as I was almost done with my response to an email.

I hadn’t typed two more words when I heard the doctor’s loud voice, “how can she say she has an emergency but she’s on the phone...

Last month, I made a decision on a proposal that was brought before me. It was enticing and looked like it would work. Even the numbers, market survey, research, they all made sense.

Still, I declined to get involved because it just didn't "FEEL" right.

Other smart investors I knew personally were involved, so this should have given me some consolation but it didn’t. My instinct was aggressively against investing so I declined and left the meeting.

I was worried if I stayed longer, the numbers would entice me.
I am a deeply emotional being. I feed off people’s energy and my intuition. This makes me ask first, "how do you feel about this?" Instead of "what do you think about this?"

I see the sadness in people's eyes when others see a bubbly persona. I hear emotions, not words.

2009 - Jon Stewart Mocks Media on ACORN Story: ‘Where the Hell Were You?’

ACORN appears to be a corrupt organization that aids and abets criminals and gets millions of dollars in taxpayer money.
Well, this is an impressive expose. I'd love to know the intrepid journalists who broke this story. "60 Minutes"? The AP? That guy who gets the predators?
"You're telling me that 2 kids from the cast of "High School Musical III" can break this story with a video camera & their grandmother's chinchilla coat? & you got nothing? They did it for $3,000..."

#tbt Portland, circa 1993-97, to a group of lost boys and the Neverland they carved out delivering other people's shit by bike. Portland is a small town, and ours was a small group, and we were all broken in some way. (1)
We were a family on our island of misfit toys, brought together by our love of riding bikes. (2)
Finding someone who would pay you to ride your bike wasn't easy. There was a rigorous vetting process: Pulse ✔️ Willingness ✔️ Ability to appear sober(ish) from 9-5? [negotiable] (3)

Is this the reason Nunes has been neutered on House Intel? The “whistleblower” was actually a NY FBI case agent who colluded w/ alt-righters. The use of term “whistleblower” was colloquial - used to protect a rouge FBI agent & conceal a plot fully orchestrated by RUDY GIULIANI...
#TBT to Apr '15 when Charles C Johnson posted a GoFundMe to support his operation to catfish Anthony Weiner into getting hacked by Guccifer so they could destroy Clinton.

The fundraiser now deleted, but I took screenshots 👇

The release of the Model T in 1908—the same year as the #FBI's founding—ushered in a new era of reliable, affordable transportation for the American people, but it also launched a new wave of crime. As car sales exploded, so did automobile thefts. #TBT
In 1919, Congress passed the Dyer Act, which made transporting stolen automobiles across state lines a federal crime. The law was a vital tool in fighting crime and protecting communities not just for state and local police but also for the #FBI. #TBT

📷 by @smithsonian
In the first two decades of the Dyer Act, the #FBI recovered more than 56,000 vehicles valued at $32 million. The law was integral to the FBI's work in the 1930s because it gave us the jurisdiction to join the hunt for notorious gangsters such as Bonnie and Clyde. #TBT

{THREAD} Today's #tbt comes from almost two years ago in Virginia's House District 94 -- a tale of an election, recounts, a tainted ballot and a random drawing which affected the shape of the VA legislature.

If anything -- the message is REGISTER AND VOTE!

VA's HD94 is located in Newport News and surrounding areas. Delegate David Yancey has held the seat since 2012 and is in his 4th term. He was challenged in 2013 by Democrat Robert Farinholt, Jr. in a close race with a difference of only about 500 votes. (2/x)
In 2015, School Board member @shelly_simonds came to the table as the Democratic contender. She had been a teacher and an environmental activist and sought to prioritize education, the environment, healthcare, criminal justice reform & protecting women's reproductive rights.(3/x)

AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich has a new “Election Integrity” Unit.

To lead it, he’s tapped a right-winger who has a history of spreading wild conspiracy theories and putting a partisan agenda over protecting AZ voters.

THREAD (1/12)
#TBT to the late days of this year’s legislative session, when we learned that the AG was getting $530,000 for his new unit (at the same time that the legislature slashed Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ budget). (2/12)…
His spokesperson said the AG’s office had never found any actual fraud from the many complaints it had received, and that the new unit would help to reassure voters that fraud isn’t a real issue. (3/12)

We've got an interesting new case of fake military dude accounts. Here we go!

This one says it's the "official twitter of MG Donald E Jackson the commanding General for Civil and Emergency Operations." The account doesn't have the blue checkmark, but a lot of us don't.
The creators of the account knows our suspicions might be raised without that verification, so it tries to get around it by claiming it's "official." This one also posts more than just creepy, nonsensical comments to women. It talks about the military and even does a #tbt.
But if we take a closer look, we start to notice a few oddities. For example, while it might look like the account is posting original content--and content that makes sense and is well-written--rather than nothing but RTs and emoji, that's not quite the case...

#TBT Israeli companies offer tourist training camps in which families, even with small children, practice shooting live ammunition at targets resembling Palestinians. Such courses are also being offered in the US. Details:

Licensed Israeli Jews are allowed to carry firearms—they have even been encouraged to carry. Palestinians on the other hand are not allowed to possess weapons.
