How many states do "they" have resolutions from in order to call a Constitutional Convention? There are several organizations pushing a call for a ConCon & they don't agree with each other. In fact the main one, Balanced Budget Amendment Task Force doesn't even agree with itself!
In 2016, the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) uncovered infighting amongst the many organizations. This resulted in Nick Dranias, a lawyer and former director of policy development at the Goldwater Institute, to be ousted from his job as Director of Compact for America.
Because he argued with the BBATF about the count.

2) Lets start with where the case was filed, and where the culprits live.

Now see recent #Q message.

Border states are VERY key.
Bigger than you can imagine.
The pipeline.

#Arizona & #Texas are border states.

3) To begin, #prostitution is illegal, this website was specifically designed to facilitate it. You may feel it should not be illegal, but it is, so what they were doing is criminal. Open and shut.

Below, it's rationalized as "transparency, record keeping and safeguards."

As a an active voter in Texas I have some questions for @SenTedCruz about his relationship to @CamAnalytica I’m just a normal American that’s trying to understand what exactly I’m up against so please bare with me. #TedCruz #Texas #TxLege #CambridgeAnalytica
1. Senator Cruz, are you currently using the data Cambridge Analytica collected on American voters for your senate race underway in Texas?
Your spokesperson @catblackfrazier released a statement stating your campaign had a contract with strict contractional language with CA & were provided assurances by CA all applicable laws & regulations were being followed. texastribune.org/2018/03/20/ted…

THREAD: 1/The #AustinBombings story is a fluid situation with a lot of updates and changes. There's been some confusion around what is happening — so here's everything we know right now. #txlege #texas trib.it/8q
2/ What has happened so far? Five bombs have exploded — leaving two dead and several others injured. Here are photos from a vigil for a 17-year-old victim. #txlege #AustinBombings trib.it/8q
3/ What kind of bombs are being used? Some were packages left at doorsteps. Sunday’s explosion appears to have been triggered by a tripwire mechanism. We don't know the materials yet. #AustinBombings trib.it/8q

1} My Dear Friend Geri,

With all due respect to current #NonProfits serving Refugees & Immigrants - their Branding & Messaging are #Tragically #Weak.

#OurAmericanKids🇺🇸 are BEING #SCAPEGOATED & #WE, the Liberals of #OurCountry we call the United States of America...
2} ...get OUR #Truthful-#Propaganda #LUNCH handed to us - #EVERY #DAMNED #TIME there's a watershed political issue.

My opinion as a 25-year #Duke MBA-trained-#Strategist, is that "Dreamers" is a well-intentioned, but desperately INEFFECTIVE MONIKER for #OurAmericanKids. Scapegoats for American Fascists
3} My dog #Sadie is a very #Active #Dreamer. Hitler #Dreamed about ruling an #AryanPlanet.

Un-@realDonaldTrump dreams of building a wall "SO fucking HIGH," that planes can't #LAND in #Texas without traveling 100-miles North of our Southern Border - just to pull a #giant U-ey✈️ Hitler Dreamed of an Aryan Planet-Earth.U-Turn in the sky

THREAD showing evidence I've come across that suggests the recent murder of a young Jewish man in California was committed by a neo-Nazi, possibly as a politically motivated killing. (Sat on this for a week waiting on editors but now bits of the info are already out, so fuck it).
On January 2nd a 19-year-old Jewish man went missing in southern California. He turned up dead on Jan 9th, buried in a shallow grave in Borrego Park (wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=3…). A former class-mate was arrested on suspicion of the murder on Jan 12th.
The deceased is Blaze Bernstein and the suspected killer--now charged with the murder--is Sam Woodward, 20. (Referred to here on out as Blaze and Sam). See the next tweet for the LA Times story.
