.@BetoORourke Said "Ted Cruz pushes fear and paranoia because he wants to divide and mislead Texans four days before this election. We should be bringing people together and defining ourselves not by who we are scared of but what we want to achieve."
#txlege #TXSen #BetoForTexas
FACT: Cruz spent $6M to achieve the exact goal of stoking fear & paranoia with the purposeful malicious intent to divide & mislead Texans
Real tangible harm being done to the American people is evident across the USA as a result of the sustained & ongoing #Psywar #Psyop #TXSen
FACT: Cambridge Analytica had outsourced Ripon’s development.

Cruz’s staff had knowledge in real time AIQ was behind Ripon’s development. AIQ confirmed that it was, but said it was never supposed to discuss its sensitive and covert operations.
#txlege #TXsen #Psywar #Psyop
FACT: The files were unearthed by Chris @VickerySec research director at UpGuard, a California-based cyber risk firm. After Gizmodo reached out to Jeff Silvester, co-founder of AIQ, the files were quickly taken offline.

#txlege #TXsen #BlueWave2018
UpGuard first discovered code belonging to AIQ on the web page of a developer Ali Yassine who worked for SCL Group. W/in the code—uploaded to the website GitHub in Aug 2016 notes that show SCL had requested that code be turned over by AIQ’s lead developer, Koji Hamid Pourseyed.
The find led UpGuard to unearth a code repository on AIQ’s website. Within it were countless files linking AIQ to the Ripon program, as well as notes for active projects for Cruz, Abbott, and the Ukrainian oligarch.

FACT: Ted Cruz illegally used foreign nationals in the covert attempt to effect the results of a U.S election. Cambridge Analytica illegally obtained forged immigration documents to sneak employees in to the US to work alongside Cruz's campaign and other GOP MoC #txlege #TXSen
"employees worried the company was giving its foreign employees potentially inaccurate immigration documents to provide upon entering the United States, showing that they were not there to work when they had arrived for the purpose of advising campaigns."

FACT: Psychological Warfare in the digital age has become by far the most effective and dangerous war weapon of time.

🔥Families Painfully Divided
🔥Decade Long Friendships destroyed
🔥Neighbor VS Neighbor
FACT: #WeThePeople will never be able to hold those accountable for the harm they are actively causing to the American people if we do not show up to the polls and exercise our right to vote blue for the sake of our nation #txlege #TXSen

#VoteThemOut
Now that I've detailed how Ted Cruz purposely used irregular warfare against us to stoke fear, paranoia operating in a covert & overt ways to divide & mislead Texans.
Let's review other despicable fact based reasons Cruz must lose. #VoteThemOut #txlege #TNSen #Midterm2018
FACT: Ted Cruz has happily endorsed locking children, toddlers & babies up in #MAGAtBabyCages and #TexadGOP outdoor children's prison camps. #WhereAreTheChildren #KeepFamiliesTogether
Vote blue. Stop the inhumane "Zero Tolerance" trump policy of ripping babies from mothers arms
Private Prison Company Geo Group Gave Generously to Trump, Ted Cruz and other #TexasGOP MoC
Now Has Lucrative Contract to detain immigrants.
#MAGAtCAGES #txlege
#TXSen #TX14 #WhereAreTheChildren #KeepFamiliesTogether
First reported in May 2017
newsweek.com/geo-group-priv…
Reported in May 2017 Within the TX legislature, a controversial bill is pending. A private prisons company called the GEO Group has allegedly asked #TexasGOP to submit a law that could lead to immigrant children being indefinitely detained in its lucrative centers #txlege #TXSen
FACT: #TexasGOP Representatives John Raney, John Cyrier and Mark Keough have authored legislation that, if passed, would allow immigration detention centers to obtain child care licenses. #txlege #TXSen #WhereAreTheChildren #MAGAtBabyCages #GOPMobRule
#VoteBlueForTheBabies
FACT: If equipped with the permits, the centers would then be able to circumvent a 2015 federal ruling that said detained immigrant children must be transferred to a child care facility after 20 days in detention.
#WhereAreTheChildren #txlege #TXSen #TX14 #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
Texas Republican GOP Representatives Raney, Cyrier & Keough’s bill would not require the detention centers to change their setups, but it could significantly benefit the GEO Group
#TexasGOP Wants to lock babies up indefinitely & are actively working on legislation to do just that
FACT: Opposition to holding children in detention centers is strong and already child psychologists have testified against the legislation, saying that detaining children can negatively affect their mental health.
But the crazy #TexasGOP are plowing ahead anyway.
#TXSen #txlege
FACT: Immigrants who have been held at Karnes have also reported sexual abuse and appalling conditions at the site. texasobserver.org/sexual-abuse-k…
FACT: Even if Karnes fails to receive a child care licence, the GEO Group might not be too concerned. From 2015 to 2016, the company’s total revenues leaped 18 percent, from $1.8 billion to $2.2 billion. #WhereAreTheChildren #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
FACT: The GEO Groups shares are currently hovering at around $31.64 per share, an all-time high.

BONUS: And the company knows who to thank:
