They told us @HillaryClinton was just as bad as @realDonaldTrump.

Hell, @SusanSarandon said she was worse.

She should really never open her mouth about politics again, ever.

That anyone ever fell for that ridiculous lie is beyond disgraceful.

Even if Clinton were guilty of the types of corruption they claimed she was she would still not be comparable in this way to Donald Trump.

Not even close.

But she's clearly not.

As the nation braces itself for the @GOP's latest betrayal in the runup to the #BrettKavanaugh confirmation vote, it is becoming clearer that even those we once believed retained some recognizably moral standards, simply don't.

@SenatorCollins, @lisamurkowski--we see you.

In the days following @SenJohnMcCain's death there seemed to be a glimmer of hope that some in the Republican party might use his death as a rallying for a better politic and saner party, but Collins, Murkowski, and Flake are rejecting that challenge.

Trump has the screws in so tightly that not even Collins--who represents a state where Trump is deeply unpopular, and who has personally experienced how seriously we in the #StopKavanaugh movement take this attack on democracy--feels able to oppose #Kavanaugh outright.

That should terrify all of us.

BEFORE his death, notably, McCain took part in a documentary called #ActiveMeasures. In it he makes clear that he believed Trump came to the presidency illegitinately. These were some of the last interviews he gave.

In @ActMeasuresDoc the political realities of #Kompromat are discussed at length. And it's clear that @HillaryClinton and others believe that Trump is owned by Russia in more than one way.

A case can be made even, by the evidence in the film, for real treason.

Given Trump's widespread unpopularity, the fact that #BrettKavanaugh came to his nomination by way of a backroom deal brokered between retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy & Donald Trump, that #Kavanaugh has clearly lied several times under oath, his increasingly negative polls,

and the increasingly troubling news regarding all things #TrumpRussia, Trump's desperate actions fueled by a sociopathic mind trained on self adulation and destruction, and the upcoming midterm elections which are likely to break up Republican hegemony, how is it possible?

How is it possible that a once moderate pro choice Republican could even consider supporting #BrettKavanaugh, a nominee she would have once brushed away? Especially when the political winds greatly favor opposition?

That is the question everyone should be asking Collins.

The answer might be as disturbing as it is obvious. Like her colleague from South Carolina @LindseyGrahamSC, @SenatorCollins has recently becone far more amenable and cooperative with the Trump administration. The change has been as sudden as it has been disturbing.

The obvious cause of such a dramatic shift is probably #Kompromat, though you have to wonder what they could have on Collins that would cause her to so publicly compromise her entire record & her reputation.

We're under the gun. Trump is ramping up exclusionary policies.

He will not relent.

We must end this, and soon.

IF #Kavanaugh is not confirmed Trump will continually nominate unacceptable candidates for the office. If he is confirmed, Trump will have won the greatest political battle of his illegitimate presidency.

They say elections have consequences.

That's true.

But those consequences should not be the surrender of our shared values.

First he came for the Muslims...

Then he came for the Immigrants.

Then he came for the gays...
