Sarah Kendzior: Caputo said he's taking 60 days off, which means he'll come back after the election. His job, in reality, is to spread lies for Trump. Caputo should have been fired, not given two months off, for the things he said about the CDC.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: Trump will call for violence from his supporters; we've been seeing examples of what's to come in Portland & Wisconsin. It's all very concerning. Even if Biden gets in & stays in, we'll still be dealing w/ all these problems.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: People have had 4 yrs to prepare for this but they instead stayed in LaLa Land & did nothing.
Rick: We've done nothing to secure our ballot boxes, & now with the pandemic, do we believe what comes out of the ballot box?
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: Hand-marked paper ballots are the best way to go, & I've been calling for them for four years. Electronic voting machines can be hacked. It's highly likely that votes for Hillary were changed to votes for Trump; that vote should have been audited.
@sarahkendzior
Sarah Kendzior: We've had silence & vacation from the Democrats instead of trying to secure the ballot box. States like mine have confusing rules about mail-in ballots.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: People have to chose the Biden route. It won't solve all our problems but it's a step in the right direction. The Republicans are stripping down our country & selling it for parts. Biden will try to prevent this.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: The coronavirus will be handled differently by Biden & Harris; that alone is reason enough to vote for them.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: Woodward revealed we nearly did go to nuclear war with N. Korea in 2017. I was talking about it back then & wasn't taken seriously.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: When people say Q-Anon is nonsense, it makes Q-Anon stronger.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: I have friends who made calls for Dems & ppl are saying they did vote blue & felt nothing was done, that Pelosi didn't do anything, so they aren't voting this year at all. It's a shame. We need the Dems to win the Senate & WH to turn things around
@sarahkendzior
Sarah Kendzior: There are other mechanisms that could have been used. It was blindingly obvious in March that Trump wanted people to die from the coronavirus. Now we're getting the, "Oh, I guess he DID want to kill us."
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: We see the same thing with climate change, that people didn't take it seriously, and now look at what's happening--the entire west coast is burning. We should have taken it seriously 30 years ago.

Greg Palast: I've been complaining about mail-in voting since 2012, way before Trump. 1 in 10 you don't get. You saw all those lines in GA--people didn't get their mail-in ballots. Trump didn't invent this, he's just making it worse.
@Greg_Palast
Greg Palast: The chance is 1 in 10 you don't get your ballot if you request it & 1 in 10 your ballot isn't counted when you vote. The privacy of the ballot is gone with mail-in ballots b/c they have your name & registration. 22% of mail-in ballots are never counted.
@Greg_Palast
Greg Palast: I have an entire chapter in my latest book that discusses how to protect your mail-in ballot.

Olga Lautman: It's infuriating that the Senate drops a report that verifies everything that's been reported over the last 4 years in the middle of the Democratic National Convention. It verifies that Trump worked w/ the Kremlin to win the election in 2016.
@olgaNYC1211
Olga Lautman: If you're a Republican, this is the perfect time to drop the report because it's not getting much reporting in the news due to the DNC.
@olgaNYC1211
Olga Lautman:I read the 960+ page report yesterday & I personally knew everything in it already; I believe a lot of it was taken from open sources. It goes back to the whole issue that Roger Stone & Paul Manafort were central to it, & they've known Trump since 1980's

Bob Ney: In Trump's ad, Biden was kneeling to speak to a child but the Trump admin made it look like Biden was kneeling for the flag. We'll be seeing Trump's camp claiming Biden has a summer home in China.
@BobNey
Rick: So now it's okay to Photoshop ads? We don't need to tell the truth any more?
Bob Ney: I don't think they care. The ads will be effective for ppl who like Trump; for others, it may or may not make a difference. I don't think it's an effective ad.
@BobNey
Bob Ney: Biden has to make sure he comes out swinging on China.

Pedro da Costa: I'm thankful for my job every day. The number of people who've filed for unemployment claims since the start of the pandemic is 54 million.
@pdacosta
Pedro da Costa: We've been in a state of suspended animation with fragile social safety nets that are disappearing, & the next quarter might be even worse.
@pdacosta
Pedro da Costa: Republicans appeared very motivated in the first round of stimulus when the political outlet was still somewhat different, but now that the pandemic response has been so botched, there's a sense of shrugging shoulders & letting it ride.

Scott Dworkin: I wish Louie Gohmert a speedy recovery. As reality sets in that we'll have to shut down again--we have no other option--and we'll have to shut down because of Trump.
@funder @TheDemCoalition
Scott Dworkin: Masks protect other people from you and you from other people. Masks also help you keep from touching your face. Gohmert is saying he got sick because he was wearing a mask, which goes against science. Why are they trying to hurt Americans?
@funder @TheDemCoalition
Scott Dworkin: At this point it's very clear there was a plan but Trump didn't want to follow it because of his low poll numbers. We're looking at a worse economic crash than in 2008.

Sarah Kendzior: Trump does want to be a wartime President, and the war is on Americans. He was never here to serve the public--he's here to serve himself & the Kremlin. We're just useless eaters, as they say.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: One week after inauguration, Trump said he was sending federal troops to Chicago. He didn't actually do it then but it's been in the works for a very long time.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: This isn't coming out of the blue; it's something Trump has wanted for a very long time.
