Franklin Graham is in a dither over JLo & gets unmercifully ratioed for his hypocrisy in the comments 😂

Of course he’s only crying crocodile tears to create talking points for Fox. He knows Fox viewers won’t hear the #RestOfTheStory They are cut off from context.

1/6
Franklin Graham’s tweet makes it obvious that this is a performance.

Fox has effectively isolated a swath of Americans from the #RestOfTheStory.

Fox viewers won’t ever hear the reminders of Melania’s nude photos or any of the rest of the ratio. 🙄
#DemCast
2/6
Fox reports are true only 17% of the time, but it’s false, mostly false or Pants-on-Fire 55% of the time (Politifact). Because Fox viewers never get the #RestOfTheStory they lack context to judge what’s fact.

The impeachment counsel & GOP senators relied on that.

mr. trump, you have not fooled anyone. You have not fooled Iran, they gave you a way out and in doing so, spared the American people of a feckless war you desperately wanted for distraction. You have not fooled our allies that you've insulted, you have not fooled the...
sycophants in the Republican party who are willing to blindly back and follow you to their own political demise. You have not fooled NATO as you insulted each country and then demanded they "Do more in the middle east" You have not fooled the rest of the world and you
certainly have not fooled the majority of rational America. No, you have not fooled anyone. You and the new political party known as trumplicans, a total and complete takeover of the former Republican party will be written into the books of history as the single most corrupt...

EVEN CONSUMMATE VICTORY IN THE BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF AMERICA WON'T END THE WAR
There is a terrible truth lurking behind Donald Trump that is far more important than 2020. We've dared not whisper this truth because it's more terrifying than anything we can currently comprehend.
1/ What is this wretched, unspeakable truth? Quite simply, that all of human civilization itself experienced *astoundingly good fortune* that DONALD J. TRUMP (of all people!) was elected head of state and supreme commander of Earth's greatest military superpower.

Seriously.
2/ Donald Trump is a bad man, and he must lose in 2020. No sane person would disagree with this. But his mere defeat is not the end of this war, not by a long shot. Without a supportive Congress, a President is essentially powerless to advance legislation on their own.

If you were POTUS what would you do to immediately stop gun violence in America?

By Executive Order I'd set up a bi-partisan Federal Agency tasked w/ Gun Safety & Reform
Every employee would be vetted & banned from interactions w/ gun lobbyists
The agency would be tasked with...
A bipartisan agency would draft gun reform legislation to go to Congress/Senate or to be passed by Executive Order.

They'd also set up/maintain Federal data bases tracking gun sales & monitoring gun owners for Mental health &/or hate speech issues (working with law enforcement)
Law enforcement can help input how the laws need to be changed to ensure they can address the National Emergency of #WhiteSupremacistTerrorism

Constitutional Lawyers can help w/ the delicate balance between gun reform & still protecting free speech & the 2nd Amendment

1/ @SpeakerPelosi, constructive and divisive criticisms, congressional oversight, executive power and it's abuse.

Firstly, I wish to make clear that this opinion is neither pro nor anti-Nancy Pelosi. It's meant to be a constructive criticism and to promote healthy dialogue.
2/@SpeakerPelosi is the most powerful Democrat in the House, is second in line for the presidency behind the VP, and provides direction for the entire caucus. However, this does not mean she makes absolute decisions, or has absolute power over the @DNC and @HouseDemocrats. She
3/ does not rule with an iron fist. Also, she is acutely aware of the frustration within the Democratic Party, both in the House and amongst WeThePeople.

Which brings us first to IMPEACHMENT.

Reviewing the impeachment process, the House vote to impeach is a vote to indict only.

@realDonaldTrump 1)Referring to Trump as childish is a disservice to children.
Children are, by nature, extraordinary curious. They are constantly exploring and learning about the world around them. Developmental psychologists regularly depict them as natural scientists.
@realDonaldTrump 2) Crooked Trump, in contrast, has been described by those who know him as completely lacking in curiosity; by all accounts, he appears to be anti-science. He already knows everything, so why would he be interested in learning anything?
@realDonaldTrump 3) Very young children, before the age of about 4, have difficulty seeing things from another person’s vantage point, not that they are selfish or always demanding attention and praise. In fact, recent research has put into doubt the idea that “egocentric” applies generally to

@realDonaldTrump Donald Trump and Republicans are putting us on path to recession. The $1.5 trillion Wall Street tax cut went directly to stock buybacks inflating value, exploding our annual deficit, providing no YOY wage growth all while engaging in trade wars with our allies #VoteDemocrat
@realDonaldTrump We need to make this abundantly clear. Republicans passed a huge $1.5 trillion Wall Street 1% tax cut which exploded the the annual deficit from $454 billion to $1 trillion. Now, to fix this out of control spending, they want to cut Social Security and Medicare #VoteDemocrat
@realDonaldTrump Republicans are suing in 20 states that mandating insurance companies to provide pre-existing condition insurance coverage options is unconstitutional. Donald Trump’s administration is refusing to defend against this lawsuit putting coverage at risk #VoteDemocrat

1/ Earlier today, @RVAwonk referenced a study that showed the correlation between Trump's rallies and violence, further supporting the concept of #StochasticTerrorism and shedding light on the events on what has occurred since Trump's public embrace of nationalism.
@RVAwonk 2/ In contrast to this well designed study, @Ali_H_Soufan describes a distinct yet equally problematic issue. A biased report that was shown to decision makers.

@RVAwonk @Ali_H_Soufan 3/ #Statistics tip: If you choose a sample that contains members outside of the target population, you will collect meaningless statistics.
