Replacements for ThinkProgress!
1) There's a new #Virginia digital news site called 'The Dogwood'. I noticed over time that the articles were unprofessionally biased against Trump. They were well-written but poorly researched, smelling a bit like propaganda.
2) I was curious to see if it was just a news slant or an actual political hack site disguised as unbiased news. WHOIS gave me no info on who owned the site. Their footer told me they were owned by For What It's Worth Media. fwiwmedia.com
3) FWIW Media is investing in LOCAL digital media to form public opinion. The big propaganda machines have failed and here are the friendly local digital dailies springing up in their place.

By law, vehicles are deadly weapons. #Charlottesville and #Virginia officials were lax with traffic mgmt. Vehicular manslaughter victim #HeatherHeyer died on 4th St, called 'alley' by locals, narrow, only 31.5 ft between buildings. Road also has a steep downward sloping grade.
Pedestrians further endangered by presence of parked cars, including two, obscured by crowd, blocking passage. #NeoNazi #JamesFields recklessly entered the roadway heading downhill, #HeatherFields struck, and ejected from hood upon impact with 2 double parked cars. Many injured.

No surprise that a bunch of commies organized and hosted this "protest" at the ICE facility where they took down the US flag & raised the Mexican flag.

Looks like "International Socialist Collective" put it together and the US #Democrats support their agenda.
Here is their Twitter page:

Note that they also want to "destroy capitalism."

Sure looks like an #Antifa fist

Trump was elected with the support of roughly 1/4 of all eligible voters (almost half of all eligible voters didn't even vote that year.)

If we really want change, we have to get involved & help others see the importance of voting. We must expand the vote.

.@swingleft has focused in past elections on key swing districts to flip them #redtoblue

Now they're focusing on 11 states to win the Senate, the White House, & #redistricting for Democrats.

We can all help whether we're in those states or not. 2/7

We can help grassrootsredistrictingproject.org

After the Supreme Court refused to rule on state gerrymandering cases, we have to flip state legislatures blue to get fair maps. Grassroots is focusing in these key 9 states. Help from anywhere. #EndGerrymandering #FridayFeeling #BlueWave 3/7

@wdunlap “Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, #Trump dismissed his past appearances with #Epstein …Epstein’s personal little black book, leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him.”
vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/h…
@wdunlap “But even beyond #Trump’s own words further up, there’s a good deal of evidence the two were friendly social acquaintances at least through the early 2000s”

“Trump called #Epstein twice in November 2004, according to message pads seized”

@wdunlap “Attorneys for #Epstein say he obtained a foreign #passport under an alias in 1980s to defend himself from potential kidnappers while traveling in the Middle East.

worried about perils he faced traveling there as ‘an affluent member of the Jewish faith’”

Mark Warner MUST be voted out in 2020. He is a disgrace. He may even be disqualified by then for acting as an agent of the Russian govt without registering.

Mark Warner is telling the Alphabets to defy DECLAS.

#Alabama #Abortion -

What have you done Alabama?

You've made it that "irresponsible" sex that leads to the creation of new life forces women to carry to term. OK. What is your justification?

Lets extrapolate.
Clearly the value placed on human life is high enough that you are seeking to protect the unborn.

Prioritising their well being over the pregnant woman. Even if you feel the woman has rights, you place the rights of the unborn first.
I don't feel this is an unfair appraisal of the situation...

Criminalising the act of abortion, as a deterrent. But what is it intended to deter?

Abortion - clearly. But is that the intention here? Isn't it "Promiscuous" sex that is the "sin" you are looking to combat?

#OpportunityZones is the largest community development initiative in a generation. However, size isn't the program’s only strength; it is the flexibility of this policy that makes it a potential game changer for communities.
The low-income communities that comprise OZs have a wide range of needs. #OpportunityZones offer communities an adaptive tool to support their own local approach to economic development. Some examples illustrate the opportunity and impact:
In East Chicago, a 225-acre contaminated brownfield was thought to be too expensive to restore but with an #OpportunityZones designation, it’s now being converted to a logistics center and is expected to support as many as 3,000 jobs. nwitimes.com/business/local…

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

@docrocktex26 Yes & VA isn't just a southern state Northam isn't just a southern white leftist Gov. We have 400 yrs of context making this moment so critical. #Virginia is to white supremacist systems as South Bronx is to Hip Hop. Jamestown = Sedgwick Ave of American anti-blackness
@docrocktex26 Our 1619 Gen Assembly (House of Burgess) started forced African migration & lifetime enslavement. Our 2019 legislature meets in the former confederate gov capitol building. A Life Size Statue of RE Lee stands in frmr senate chamber where he accepted his traitorous war commission
@docrocktex26 VA is the belly of our racist beast. From that epicenter, in that smog, savvy focused ppl trusted him. Had he been honest, they would've advised him to step forward & say This is my past. This is my truth. Let's talk about this hurt & find healing And would've gone to bat for him

First, #Virginia's governor defends #infantacide, now this yearbook photo from college where he is dressed in #blackface surfaces a few days later.

#Kavenhaugh did nothing. Rep. #SteveKing's statement was taken out of context by The New York Times...
but their crimes were being #Republican.

#Democrats are literally getting a pass for baby murder and blatanty saying black people are stupid clowns.

....
Since so many #blacks continue to support Democrats regardles what they say or do, the shoe obviously fits for them and all other #Democrats are sick #hypocrites.

1) Here be the one I was looking for. @RealSaavedra on #VAHouseD's seeking to allow #Abortions up to the moment of birth. Now. Really? What kind of sick demented ppl are these? I've always believed that, as it WILL become, when #RoeVWade is struck, it's a #StatesRightsIssue.
2) That said, if that goes thru, #Virginia will, like #NewYork, become officially #Californicated [ ! ] Next someone looking for 15min will propose #PostBirthAbortions followed by #Reps wanting #ChildSacrifice legalized!
conservativedailynews.com/2019/01/virgin…
#ThesePeopleAreSick [ ! ]
3) As I have continuously said, #RoeVWade being struck will do zero, 2prevent those that seek a convenience in #Abortion, as it will easily slide into the #StatesRightsAgenda. Nothing will change overall. It's all so much bluster for nothing, like so many #Liberal causes [?]...

🌎Donald Trump—🌪️Roger Stone—🔥Paul Manafort—🌬️Roy Cohn
There are so many connections between these four gentlemen, but the common thread between them all appears to be Roger Stone.

washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/…
🔪But Stone’s rules: “Attack, attack, attack—never defend” and “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.” This “advice” came via renowned attorney Roy Cohn, who represented Donald Trump late in Cohn’s life.

vanityfair.com/news/2017/06/d…
🌬️Cohn’s "original" 3-dimensional strategy via @vanityfair article: 1. Never settle, never surrender. 2. Counter-attack, counter-sue immediately. 3. No matter what happens, no matter how deeply into the muck you get, claim victory and never admit defeat.”

🍊Sound familiar?
