Per Wikipedia: Batista suspended the 1940 Constitution and revoked most political liberties, including the right to strike. #TheResistance
/1
Batista aligned with the wealthiest landowners who owned the largest sugar plantations, & presided over a stagnating economy that widened the gap between rich and poor Cubans. Eventually it reached the point where most of the sugar industry was in U.S. hands. #TheResistance /2
The American Mafia controlled the drug, gambling, and prostitution businesses in Havana, and with large U.S.-based multinational companies who were awarded lucrative contracts.

What we as a nation are currently doing to #DACA recipients is just completely nauseating: nytimes.com/2018/01/14/us/…
It's also unnecessary. And baffling. Congress can pass a #DREAM Act and at this point, the Republicans who control it should be prepared to do so.
I mean...is that not obvious to everyone else?

(Thread) Dennis Kucinich, the far left, and Russian Active Measures: A story I did not want to have to tell. #OHGov
2. Kucinich has always been "friendly" to the Communist Party in the US - which was obviously funded by Russian (and other Communist Parties) medium.com/@trumpwatchdog…
3. BUT, my theory about when he was compromised by #TrumpRussia type active measures - goes back to 1999.

1/If you are on twitter for political reasons, this thread is for you.

Our country is in a #ConstitutionalCrisis. We are divided and under attack.
However, we are fighting against multiple enemies, both foreign and domestic.

We are fighting to save our democracy.

#RiseUp
I agree with the theory of Harry Rubenstein.

The true birth of our democracy was when our 1st president, George Washington, gave his farewell speech during the transition of powers.

Washington’s farewell speech, shared through newspapers and pamphlets, gave a call to action to Americans to end dissent between the political parties and to end polarization in the West, North and South.

AMERICA, WE ARE AT THE EDGE OF A PRECIPICE.

Yesterday, as Trump was ranting about “shithole countries,” I was in a county courthouse in Georgia looking at a death certificate for a black man who died in 1930. I watched the courthouse employees’ faces... 1/
closely as they read the cause of death “Unlawful act.” Their confused looks confirmed what I suspected; they had never seen such a vague description listed as a cause of death. They clearly did not know about the incident that occurred there 88 years before, even though it 2/
had been the focus of national news for weeks back in 1930. “It was a lynching” I explained, pointing to the word scribbled in parenthesis on the document. I had them pull another death certificate; this one for a white 16 year-old girl who had died one day prior to the man. 3/

Some thoughts on #DACA and the art of the deal

1) Trump made it clear, there's no #DACA without the wall 👇
2) Yet, the New York Times breathlessly reported "Trump Appears to Endorse Path to Citizenship for Millions of Immigrants"

3) Cue the outrage 😱

I've been part of the Twitter resistance for a year now. I'm going to share some thoughts about why & how I resist.

Some people may not like some things I say here. I’m sorry for that, but they need to be said. 1 #WhyIResist #HowIResist #RebelScum #TheResistance
Some things in the first year were fun: meeting like-minded people, the #scifi characters, learning how to take effective action. Celebrating #victories like beating the #ACA repeal bills.

A lot of it wasn't fun - the threats of nuclear war, the daily stress of bad news. 2
Follow parties were fun, and a good way to promote a message and raise awareness, connect with other resistors and grow our followings. They had themes and served a purpose and there was about about one a month.  3 #PartyWithAPurpose #trending #amplify #effective

1. There is a shift in #TheResistance. I felt it last night and see it growing today. The dog and pony show of Bannon and DT, the shockingly not shocking release of #FireAndFury combined with a GOP that isn't even pretending they aren't obstructing justice. It is sickening.
2. What we're feeling is the grim reality that the #GOP won't do anything to stop the assault on our country, our democracy and our people. There is no *BOOM* moment, no worthy impeachable offense. Make no mistake, we will take Congress in 2018, but where will we be in a year?
3. Some damage can be undone with time and effort, some damage will scar us forever. The damage of an electorate without a voice, living at the mercy of 'representation' that flagrantly believes it is above the law is permanent damage to our country.

1. Those who follow my work know I believe that the Trump candidacy and win was orchestrated through a combined effort of the alt-Right and Russia. Further I believe it was planned for Bannon to turn on DT and Pied-Pieper away with the "true" deplorables after wrecking the GOP.
2. What I do find myself wondering is how Bannon and Mercer planned to avoid legal scrutiny in the event of an investigation like Mueller's -which I've little doubt they would have anticipated, perhaps even counted on as it creates more chaos and division.
3. It's worth noting that though Mueller has interviewed Lewandowski, Manafort, even Hicks...Bannon, Mercer and Conway are conspicuously absent from the investigation so far (at least publicly). In fact, interest in Cambridge Analytica has been surprisingly minimal.

Attention. Priority:
#TheResistance Counter-Intelligence briefing.

This briefing is long, in-depth, and has two parts: 1) Counter-Intel History. 2) Adaptations to Social Media.
#Resistance #Resist #ResistanceUnited
I rarely snap my fingers and demand attention, but this is very important, and I would kindly ask that you share this thread if you feel that I have earned it. #ImpeachTrump #TrumpRussia #RefusePolarization #ResistTogether #UniteBlue
Clearly the US is under a counter-intel (CI) attack. But what is CI and how does it function? Let's look at the overall picture, and some specific case-studies. #RussianPropaganda on social media is a form of offensive CI, which #TheResistance intends to counter.
