*** THREAD ***

If you're wondering why President @realDonaldTrump is so busy spinning a web of even bigger lies, lies that anyone can see are nonsense, and Republicans are releasing damaging information to him but living in opposite land, let me explain.

#TheResistance #AMjoy
Let's start with the awful truth.

Trump and his shameful Republican defenders are using a deliberate technique called "The Big Lie" invented by Hitler.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_lie
Ivanka Trump famously said that Donald had a copy of Hitler's speeches.

If you think that's far fetched, just remember. He ran a white supremacist housing empire...

Incoming transmission: #StupidGate thread...mostly looking at Manafort and Gates, their legal troubles, the Mueller investigation, and their Russia/Ukraine dealings.

(Original research done by reddit user PoppinKREAM, commentary and organization are mine).

#TheResistance
Manafort first started working for Putin via Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska back in 2006.

This was halfway through Putin's first term. And US/Russia relations were...strained.

#StupidGate

Also in 2006, it is TOTALLY NOT SUSPICIOUS that Manafort bought a ton of real estate in New York in cash.

How many coincidences add up to an impossibility?
He stood in the Oval Office with Russian spies, laughed about firing the chief law enforcement officer investigating him, and then gave them classified intelligence.

What will it take? Recarving the Lincoln Memorial in Cyrillic?
We could sit for hours, in hundreds of tweets listing evidence from secret meetings in the Seychelles to the President's son's own emails, to the Intelligence Community's unanimous conclusion of Russian election tampering

But why?

This is exactly what it looks like.

Dehumanization on Social Media
Lessons for #TheResistance

Thread by @Clara_Resists & @Augustus709

Thursday, April 12 is Yom HaShoah-Holocaust Remembrance Day-to commemorate the six million Jews killed by Nazis during the Holocaust.

The genocide resulted from dehumanization.
Most people think of the Holocaust as the Final Solution, when in reality the genocide began much earlier (1933), before World War II even started (1939) in fact.
And the process of dehumanization, which made the genocide possible, began well before that and evolved gradually over many years.

#MikePompeo @SenatorMenendez This committee considers your nomination after nearly a year-and-a-half of reckoning with Trumps erratic approach to foreign policy that has left our allies confused and our adversaries emboldened. It's an approach driven by impulse and not strategy.

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10 nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications

Since 1996 under Gingrich, the GOP has been using loaded, accusatory language to create negative propaganda to debase ordinary words.
They weaponized neutral terms such as "liberal", "progressive", "socialist", "taxes", "welfare", "regulation" into emotional dog-whistles.
1/
The famous 1996 GOPAC Memo, which Gingrich and others in the GOP crafted to give that year's GOP candidates tools to propagandize their campaigns, is loaded with the negative terminology to label their opponents, and positive terms for themselves.
2/
informationclearinghouse.info/article4443.htm
The GOP, like Cambridge Analytica, deliberately avoids facts & logic.
They use emotional manipulation via propaganda to "switch off" voters' skepticism & critical thinking.
That's why they try to co-opt terms like "patriot", "freedom", and "rights".
This is not new.

When you work for Sinclair Broadcasting, you are fuel for the Trump propaganda machine, Just like the people that work for the RT.

Let's take a closer look at Sinclair...

#TheResistance

vox.com/platform/amp/f…
The FCC, under the direction of @AjitPaiFCC, are undoing regulations to allow a pro-Trump news organization to buy out local news stations across the country.

There are, rather, were laws in place to prevent this from happening.

#TheResistance

In addition to being the destroyer of the free internet (TM), @AjitPaiFCC also met with Sinclair Broadcasting right after the inauguration and started removing restrictions that Sinclair wanted removed.

Psyops War Waged on Twitter

Add this info to your toolkit:

What is Demoralization (warfare) aka psychological warfare?

It is a Chekist Psyops propaganda technique used by paid #TrumpPutin Disinfo & Despair Trolls to divide & demoralize the opposition to the #TrumpRegime.
The job of paid Moles,Trolls & Agent Provocateurs (MTAP) is to demoralize everyone opposing the corrupt #TrumpRegime.

Be wary even if the bio says they hate Trump & they actively bash Trump & GOP daily.

😱”Resistance is Futile” is the subtext of the mantra of Despair MTAPs.

.
👉🏼It is a psyop, ‘controlled opposition’ ploy pretending opposition to Trump/GOP, thus infiltrating the opposition movement to sow:

👉🏼Disinfo (usually important points omitted or diminished),

👉🏼Discord (snippy/rude), &

👉🏼Dissent (attacking others opposing Trump).

Getting @realDonaldTrump elected wasn't Russia's main goal.
Russia's bigger goal has always been to create chaos and distrust within American society.
They want Americans to distrust the media by not knowing what's real and what's not.

Benefits of having three kids #1:
Absolutely noone (family & others) gives unprompted parenting advice anymore (probably because they gave up).
Benefits of having three kids #2:
Being able to say (in theory) things like: “well, *some* of my kids play Golf”
Benefits of having three kids #3:
Being able to switch from man to zone defense at home.

1/4 To understand why I & others think it's crucial to oppose Bernie Sanders' influence in the Democratic party, you have to understand this:

➥NYT Interactive: To Reclaim the House, Democrats Need to Flip 24 G.O.P. Seats. 25 Are in Clinton Territory.
nytimes.com/interactive/20…
2/4 It's impossible for #BlueWave2018 to not #FlipTheHouse — except for one problem. We have a left-wing tea party running dozens/hundreds of candidates, some even posing as Dems while they hate the party, who are trying to primary and/or spoil elections of sitting Democrats
3/4 Some of fake candidates lack qualifications & can't win an election & are in the race to smear the Democrat. Some are now scorched-earth attacking power female Dems like Diane Feinstein, hoping to take out heavy hitters of the party. Some are genuine, but under-qualified.

This thread contains instructions on how to unsubscribe from a blocklist & mass unblock ALL blocked accounts using a script developed by the amazing @JCampbellVA75. The process will have to be performed on a Windows based computer as we do not have an equivalent MAC/mobile app.
Anyone that is willing to experiment with running the script on a MAC and providing instructions on how to run it we would greatly appreciate the input!
Please note as this app unblocks ALL accounts, you will need to note any accounts you want to reblock after you have completed this process.

PARENTING RANT - When my 3 girls were in HS each one of them, freshman year, reached their limit (MY limit) forgetting things. "Mom, can you bring ___? Or I'll get marked down a grade." For each one there came a point when I said "No. Sucks to be you." Know what happened? THEY 1/

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza
Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2
Russia also targeted #peopleofcolor (specifically black voters) to sow distrust of Hillary & the political process, which helped Trump's campaign. 3

Regarding bots:
What we have released thus far:
1. A dataset of a Russian commercial botnet with 134,000 accounts. This demonstrates our ability to ID botnets.
2. A dataset of those who follow Brad Parscale.
What is forthcoming:
3. A dataset of the botnets connected to Parscale.
We made a decision to delay, and stand by it.

What is the new timing? Before Sunday night.

We are not Trump. We make sure we get things right. We won’t release flawed data & bluff our way through.

We made a promise to tell you the truth, even when it undermines belief in us.
We intend to keep that promise.

The truth requires admitting failure. We failed to be on time.

We failed to generate a data set for which I could assure accuracy and comprehensiveness. I apologize without caveat.

But I would rather be late and right, than on time and wrong.

Cambridge Analytica admissions to @Channel4News undercover reporters confirm that Trump's campaign manager illegally coordinated with Make America Number 1 PAC just as this FBI complaint by @funder @TheDemCoalition alleged on November 16th, 2016.

Bannon never got paid by Trump's campaign, but his movie company Glittering Steel LLC took money from the Make America Number 1 PAC which was controlled by the Mercer family.

Thread: Characteristics of Russian Troll Accounts

Now that we're in the middle of Russia's pathetic and obvious full-scale assault on the 2018 Midterms, I thought it would be helpful to share noticeable characteristics of Russian trolls & get your thoughts & observations.

1)
Characteristics of Russian Troll Accounts:

2) Russian trolls have a difficult time keeping up with the radical changes in American politics. They'll constantly default to outdated attacks on Hillary Clinton.

#TheResistance is owning 2018.
Russia's still stuck in 2016.
Characteristics of Russian Troll Accounts:

3) Russian troll accounts will often have odd punctuation errors: double periods, double commas, odd spacing between words and punctuation. The Cyrillic alphabet used in Russia doesn't translate well, in spite of their best efforts.

1/ When? At what point is it enough? Where is the line? How long do we wait? Are those currently in positions of leadership deaf, dumb & blind? What about those that were, but no longer are? Is everyone waiting for someone else to make the determination? #Resist #TheResistance
2/ If not everything that’s occurred since and including the entire 2016 election, up and down ballot, nation wide isn’t a crisis, what is? Is the American Govt involved with the very practices our Government was put in place to prevent? #Vote #FlipItBlue #BlueWave2018 #VoteBlue
3/ Did the President not take an Oath? If the President doesn’t honor his Oath do we not have a Congress to check him? If Congress does not check him but is corrupted and derelict of duty as well, who protects America? The American people can keep them in check with their vote.

Yale history prof @TimothyDSnyder outlined 20 lessons from the 20th Century on preventing tyranny from overcoming democracy. His book is a must-read for #TheResistance: amazon.com/Tyranny-Twenty… (Thread)
1/ Do not obey in advance. Do not acquiesce or conform to the new regime, offering to comply before compliance is required by law. Hitler's party consolidated power b/c too many citizens offered anticipatory obedience.
2/ Defend Institutions. Trump has aggressively sought to undermine all independent institution that opposes his admin, including the free press, the judiciary, DOJ, FBI, & #Mueller. Choose an institution you cherish and take its side.

**** THREAD *****

Roger Stone told me that he communicated with Donald Trump throughout the campaign in an exclusive interview and I'm going to break down why that's important here, with audio and links.

#TrumpRussia #TheResistance
Last May, I met Stone at iHeartRadio studios after a national broadcast with @AmandiOnAir on @WIOD.

Fernand Amandi photographed us chatting and this is the interview.

soundcloud.com/grantstern/exc…
Roger Stone's a dogged debater when you go off the topics he's interested in pushing. On May 1st, 2017 there was no Special Counsel and former FBI Director James @Comey wouldn't testify for two more days.

So I asked Stone first about his role in Trump's hiring of Paul Manafort.

Fashionably late #BlackHistoryMonth !
Garrett Morgan (Thread)

#TheResistance #BLM #RiseUp #Resist #ResistanceUnited #BlackLivesMatter

Today, we have a happy ending, so let's all relax a bit and read up on a forgotten hero:
One of the reasons for #BlackHistoryMonth is that blacks are so often systematically erased from history, or simply forgotten in favor of their fairer-skinned counterparts. Today, we'll learn about Garrett Morgan, one of the greatest of the early 20th century.
Born in Kentucky in 1877, he was the son of former slaves, reared in the reconstruction South. Actually, he also had European and Native American ancestry too, though, as we will see, this did not stop him from facing widespread discrimination.
