🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

do you know about elaine phillips?

people from #Louisiana, #Mississippi, #Tennessee, #Alabama & #Missouri might know

just so you know elaine phillips was not a:
woman
man
human

elaine phillips was an horrific event which happened in #Arkansas
2019 - marks 100th anniversary of one of the deadliest US massacres, claiming 200+ black lives

black sharecroppers worked in fields w/o fair share of profits

blacks were the majority population but control of cotton was dominated by whites, who low-balled wholesale prices
#civiljustice
#racism

whites also enacted a system designed to keep blacks in debt to keep control of the community
(familiar)?

so, black farmers gathered at church to unionize

white security guards circled building, shots were fired & a white security officer was killed

Investigators recovered 23 rifles & shotguns, & found 3 IEDs in the home of 1 of the suspects. Each suspect is charged w/ the intent to use the IEDs to attack #Islamberg, a community of #Muslim families. This isnt the 1st time the community's been targeted thedailybeast.com/four-accused-o…
In 2015, #Tennessee minister, Robert Doggart, plotted the deadliest attack on US soil since 9/11, against #Islamberg. No terrorism charges were brought against him. He was recorded saying "& if it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds.” theguardian.com/us-news/2015/j…
Just last yr, a number of far-right, anti-Muslim groups led by the American Bikers United Against Jihad, organized an event to harass & intimidate the small community of 200 ppl: thedailybeast.com/anti-muslim-bi…

This notorious repost from a Pitt or Volunteers fan is amazing [thread]:
There's a change in the air. The Butch funk is gone. The Pruitt era begins. For better or worse, we have a new reason to be hopeful and believe that Tennessee will soon again be matching on-field results
with our blue blood traditions. Pruitt's defense dominated last night, and hes on the verge of securing a Top15 class in a transition year. Vols have a lot to be excited for in 2018, which we start off against the University of #WestVirginia.
A team we've never met head to head on the gridiron; and with the game brings encounters with a fanbase we've never experienced. The University of W. Virginia #Mountaineers and their cocaine fiend of a coach #Dana #Holgorsen.

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject electproject.org/early_2018
#Midterms2018 : dans tous le pays, les chiffres de la participation le jour du vote semblent aussi largement au-dessus de la normale, et ils dépassent même parfois ceux enregistrés en 2016. Pour rappel, la participation lors des midterms est généralement inférieure de 20 points.
#Midterms2018 : à #Nashville, la participation est déjà supérieure à celle de 2016. La mobilisation dans ce bastion démocrate du très conservateur #Tennessee est essentielle pour que @PhilBredesen conserve une chance d'être élu Sénateur.

I will say this, over and over again.None of these numbers are even close to what the polls are saying.We are leading by large margins everywhere. I honestly am not seeing us just barely hanging onto the house at this point. Its looking more and more like we win big in the house!

✅Help #SaveTheACA
✅Help save and expand #Medicare
✅Protect #NetNeutrality
✅Protect the environment and deal with #climatechange
✅Help end #Gerrymandering and voter suppression.
✅Enact #GunSense legislation.
✅Protect abortion rights.
And more. 2/6
Here are governors' seats we need to hold or are competitive to flip. Please follow, donate, add them to your RT lists, & if you are local, get involved with their campaigns on the ground. Candidates all through primary elections.

📌 (1) While we all thought the #PodestaGroup was gone turns out their work only wrapped up at the end of 2017, a recent FARA filing shows they continued work with Hong Kong, Japan, India, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Center for Media Studies at Saudi and anti Qatar PR campaign
(2) Here are the lobbyists who found themselves unemployed at the end of 2017 though if history proves anything surely they’ve moved on to another firm.
(3)While “broke” good old Tony Podesta managed to continue his campaign contributions to @dccc @SenFeinstein while the other lobbyists stayed mostly loyal to all things Democrat.

Gang. We've got a serious problem that is not being reported. Bear in mind, this thread mostly is re:the one state I have info for in this matter. & that is #Montana. It is HIGHLY likely that most other states have this problem

Here we go. 1/24
Direct quote from the LEPC Yellowstone County May 10, 2018 minutes: "Regional
Haz-Mat Response Team in Billings used to rely on State and Federal funding but
this source has dried up. Keeping team together with local funding that may only
last two more years. ..." 2/24
"...May need to limit response area due to funding limitations.
Need legislation for increased funding."
