I guess it was only a matter of time before the McResistance began making a hero out of John Bolton.
"We hate Trump so much that we love George W Bush, Bill Kristol, Max Boot, and now, John Bolton."

1) Fellow citizens I need your help. Today on Colorado Public Radio, a man named Andy Williams who owns "Medicine Man", a recreational marijuana business in the greater Denver metro has threatened to back Republican Senator Cory Gardner if the Democrats nominate former governor..
2)...John Hickenlooper because the Governor struggled early on with his position on recreational marijuana. If that is Mr. Williams sole consideration for supporting Mr. Gardner who has voted with Trump, the Koch Brothers and is one of the largest recipients of NRA money...
3)...then I will ask all of you to help me mount an economic boycott of Mr. Williams' business. Governor Hickenlooper and/or any other Democrat will be a better Senator than Cory Gardner. I have given Mr. Williams until Monday noon to respond. It amazes me that Mr. Williams...

1/ I despised Trump from day 1. But I was able to turn my back on the President and I’d hoped by going about my business and keeping my head down this nightmare would just quietly pass in time. However, there was a gradual crescendo building up and up and up and up...
2/ By the beginning of 2019 I was already riddled with guilt for not being a voice of opposition. A few months later I had taken a passive approach, trying to reason from a cowards position with #MAGATS. By the orphaned baby photo op, I had experienced a full blown meltdown...
3/ After that moment, I hated this President more than anything or anyone I’ve ever hated in my life. I shook off the guilt over my delayed activation in joining the resistance and got to work doing what I could in my own little world to help bring this jackass down...

After the passing of any Articles of impeachment by the House of Representatives, the scenario that Mitch McConnell will refuse to allow a trial in the Senate is obviously very real. You can bank on it. 1/10
Mitch McConnell has made a despicable career of obstructionism & wrongly breaking Senate norms.

There is reason to proceed with awareness of McConnell's tactics & not rush impeachment. The longer we have, the more wrongdoing we can uncover & sway more public opinion.
If McConnell refuses a trial, the next step the House could take would be suing the Senate, which would end up at the SCOTUS.

We need to ensure the GOP bears the weight of refusing to hold lawlessness accountable. DT is already using impeachment to try & rally his dupes. 3/10

There are 2 major parties in the United States. They are nothing alike.  

The Democrats taking over the majority in the House has allowed them to investigate Trump. There would be no investigations if the GOP were still the House majority. 1/18
There would be a full-blown coverup of all wrongdoing of the #Trump administration if the GOP were still the House majority.

Democrats have pursued the information they need through legal means. Acting illegally, though the Trump administration does, won't win impeachment. 2/18
Democrats have pursued the information through legal means.

The Trump administration, Barr's DOJ, & the Republicans in Congress have obstructed the investigation by every means, including turning a hearing into a bleating rant of obstructionism. #LewandowskiHearing 3/18

Warning: @RippleCreekNW appears to be a fairly sophisticated fake resistance disinformation account. She posted a fake quote from me (and @ ed me which I guess is not that sophisticated lol) with fake statistics. The account’s English appears to be non-native. #TheResistance
The specific inaccuracies with articles and prepositions definitely make the person behind the account a possible native Russian speaker. Necessary reminder to please not hate Russians indiscriminately, but this looks like a possible Russian influence account. #Resistance #Resist
Here’s a screenshot of the fake quote with fake stats.

EYES ON! Serious! Quick decode. The left is planting child porn on Republican Senator's computers, etc., and charging them as they did with Christian Sen. Mike Folmer (pro-life), as an "umbrella" operation. He was charged Sept 17, 2019. #QAnon
2) This is how they are trying to pull Republicans out of the 2020 race. These people are EVIL!

#BREAKING:#Kavanaugh registered his website domain on February 8, 2017. How did he know way back then that (1) Kennedy would retire and (2)he would be the nominee? Hmm--STRANGE

#TheResistance #SupremeCourt #CNN #MSNBC #Yahoo #WednesdayThoughts #FBRParty
So lets get this straight--On the one hand we had #Kavanaugh correctly "predicting" Kennedy would retire and he would be the nominee, and on the other hand Kennedy's son giving #Trump SHADY loans while at #deutschebank yet its CRICKETS from #MSM. Hmm…
Wonder what our good friend @SenatorCollins knew about this👆👆. Given her shameful "NO CORROBORATION" stunt👇👇, she was probably IN ON IT!!…

Just when you thought McConnell couldn't fuck with our elections any further he just topped himself.

Now he's shut down the FEC --the only federal agency tasked with investigating election security issues-- through the 2020 election cycle.

Rick Hasen, an election law expert at UCLA Irvine tweeted that the panel was already “dysfunctional” but “given the threat of foreign intervention in the 2020 elections, the inability of the FEC to act on an emergency basis is BAD NEWS."

And it gets worse.

McConnell left the FEC 1 member shy of the 4-member quorum required by refusing to replace 1 of 2 GOP members who resigned just days after he and the other GOP member refused to investigate a complaint that Russians gave $31MM to Trump's 2016 campaign funneled through the NRA.

Today, the Proud Boys have organized an 'End Domestic Terrorism' rally in Portland in which it appears they're gearing up to replicate Charlottesville. PLEASE stay away from this, it's NOT what #TheResistance is about! #SaturdayThoughts…
If you're looking for a way to meaningfully protest today, skip the Portland/Proud Boys mess and find a @MomsDemand Recess Rally against Gun Violence today instead. Here's the link for locations of that purposeful action. #SaturdayMotivation…
Trump has (of course) weighed in on the Portland rally to be held by Alt-Right & Neo-Nazi groups, including Proud Boys. In fact, he appears to be concerned @ the Antifa group disrupting them, & has threatened to designate Antifa an "Organization of Terror'…

1- This article & leaked transcript from the Dean Baquet @nytimes town hall is really quite awful.

NYT is not running a newspaper anymore, they are running a daycare center for #TheResistance…
2- No wonder @nytimes was duped by the obvious Russia hoax, that in their words they "covered better than anybody else". They never set themselves up to investigate, they set themselves up to publish leaks & give readers what they wanted to hear. I knew MSM was awful, but man..🤦‍♂️
@nytimes 3- @nytimes truly can't comprehend people that don't think like them and/or share their values. And they'll remain clueless, because there's no real commitment here to understand. More here 👇

1. What are the ways that #EvangelicalismKills?

Conservatives love to say that ideas have consequences, but somehow they never want to examine the consequences of right-wing ideologies.

So let’s do that with this new hashtag coined by @Ashadahya.

#MondayMorning #EmptyThePews
2. Asha started the hashtag in connection with Renee Bach, an evangelical missionary in Uganda who, acting on a “calling”—rather than training and preparation—performed medical procedures only doctors are qualified to perform. And children predictably died.

2-a. If you haven’t read this on Bach’s story, do:…

1. Welcome to today's WH Daily #shadowbriefing brought to you by #TheResistance Its been a full season since the White House has briefed and @PressSec apparently still doesn't know where the briefing room is. So, America you are stuck with the Shadow Briefing.
@PressSec 2. Let's get right to questions. Q. Was @realDonaldTrump surprised by anything in the Mueller hearing. A. He was surprised by a lot. First, Bill Barr told him he was exonerated and it's pretty clear to him now that's not true. He wasn't that surprised though because
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 3. of course he knows what he did. He was really surprised at the coverage. He didn't expect most of the media to focus on Mueller's delivery and ignore the damning facts that were testified to by Mueller. He was shocked the Mueller saying that his answers under oath were

It wasn’t supposed to end this way.

Donald Trump, not Robert Mueller, was supposed to be vanquished at the hands of his political foes. Trump, not Mueller, was supposed to suffer a legacy-ending humiliation that would bury his tough-guy reputation...…
The climax of #TheResistance’s fantasy to take down Donald Trump wasn’t supposed to end with long faces at MSNBC and CNN, or with reporters at the Washington Post and the New York Times admitting defeat.

Me for @theamgreatness today:…
#TheResistance, once again, had pinned its hopes on a flawed actor not up to the task. Just like the conquerors who came before him—Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen just to name a few—Mueller slouched out of the spotlight after failing to best the Bad Orange Man.

A short thread on #impeachment.

I have pre-existing conditions—I fear my life & that of my friends being taken away.
I have close friends with DACA—I fear their right to be here being taken away.
I'm a Latino parent—I fear my child will be discriminated against worse than I was
I'm the survivor of an in-person death threat against me & my family, from a MAGA extremist who hated me just for who I am—I fear him or another carrying out those threats.

I'm an attorney—I fear the erosion of the rule of law.
I'm a patriot—I fear Russian interference in the 2020 election.

I'm a voting rights advocate—I fear a system is currently being created that will lead to permanent minority rule, & that that minority will use political power to permanently restricts the rights of the majority.

Thurs show will be on collapse of #TheResistance fantasy of impeachment brought about by today’s hearing. @realDonaldTrump now has opportunity to put it all to bed by simply repeating “No conspiracy, no collusion, no obstruction,” which is what majority of public has concluded.
If Dems (or any broadcast/print/social media outlet) continue to try and resurrect this fantasy, they’ll suffer terribly at polls or in ratings. The sad fiasco of today was that the Dems obliged SC Mueller to testify and results were awful for him. Ds will spin but no use.
The warning @SpeakerPelosi tried to give her back benchers and publicity-addicted chairmen went unheeded and @realDonaldTrump emerged not merely unscathed but stronger for today’s theatrics. #TheResistance may not know it, but it’s bleeding out on the impeachment fantasy.

1/ let's be honest. Things are very bad right now. The ICE raids, the activities of their agents, the overt racism on the part of Donald Trump, the existence of concentration camps and children in cages, the constant marketing of the illegal as legal, as well as the marketing of
The legal as illegal, the continued attacks upon the rights of citizens, the seeming impotence of House Dems, the confusion of applicable Constitutional law, the federal courts stacked with Trump appointed Republicans, and the confusion and Discord sown amongst the Left, Liberal
Democrats, the resultant infighting over the vagaries of impeachment, and the overall frustration associated with feeling helpless. This is what we're facing. This is what we have to deal with now. This is right in our faces and it's not going away any time soon.

If any of that

Pentagon & intel agencies hesitate reading Trump in on ops targeting Russia, b/c of concerns he will countermand or leak intel to foreign officials
