1. Unless there are more than 10 House Rs & the GOP's "Cancel Culture" fails to drive @Liz_Cheney from her leadership post there won't be a GOP Civil War.

We NEED one.

That's why I'm putting pressure on every single org, entity, outlet, that can come to assist the GOP 10
2. (House) impeachment voters & the few in the senate right now that are willing to stand up for democracy. We need to help them learn to define their votes as "pro-democracy"- the alt is the end of democracy. We need to make clear that the so-called "stop the steal" movement was
3. a LIE designed to hide Trump's effort to literally end democratic elections in America. But these people can not do it alone. They need every group they can get behind them. And if others see them supported, more will join them. 10 is not enough. It may be too late for the
4. impeachment vote, but our goal should be to get the majority of elected Republicans to abandon the lie that the election was "stolen from Trump" bc if that lie is allowed to fester, our country is DOOMED. So if you are reading this tweet & have power in your position either in
5. media, as the leader of a interest group, political advocacy group, public interest group, ANY group that works in politics- we CANNOT HAVE A HEALTHY DEMOCRACY IF THE MAJORITY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS PUSHING THE STOLEN ELECTION LIE. Each of us, in our own roles, big & small
6. must do all that we can to urge every Republican we can personally reach to renounce the "stop the steal" lie. To tell their audiences/voters that Joe Biden won the 2020 election. That after the multiple investigations and recounts that have been carried out in the states of
7. GA, PA, MI, WI& AZ, including 64 lawsuits that required review by judges, including Trump appointed judges, there is no doubt that Biden won the election. It is SO CRITICAL that we encourage every single Republican we possibly can to do this as the Republican half of the
8. electorate will ONLY believe it if it comes from Republicans they trust. And we must appeal to Republicans to do it. We must urge them to understand the EXTREME public safety & duress DC is under now. At the heart of all of it lies Trump's Great Lie that somehow his 2nd term
9. was "stolen from him" and we (the media, influencer, political, sane world) must do everything we can to fight back at the crazy world bc it is NOT fringe. It is a HUGE movement. It is mainstream. And no solution is possible until we can get the GOP itself to de-radicalize.
10. It doesn't take them believing in Q'Anon to be radicalized. If a current Rep office holder believes that Donald Trump "really" won the election & that they are suffering through a "stolen" election- that is a radicalized member of Congress. And folks- right now there are more
11. Republicans in Congress like THAT then there are that live in reality. So we have a BIG problem within the GOP and we must be putting max pressure on McConnell & McCarthy to get their Caucuses inline.

1. As per @chucktodd's int w MI's Aty Gen @dananessel: she was surprised to find out that the National Rep Aty Gen Association (@RepublicanAGs) helped org the rally of extremists on the 6th. They are supposed to be on the side of law enforcement & even disregarding what ended up
2. happening, think about what this organization was up to. It was helping to org, it was inviting & enticing Americans to go to a rally, the theme of which was to overturn a democratic, free, fair, and verified to be free from fraud by extensive legal reviews election. Yet, the
3. Republican Party's main organization for law enforcement was there to support invalidating Joe Biden's election and overturning, literally ending democracy in America. I mean, MY GOD. This is the GOP's Aty Gen Association!! We really need the press to step up coverage of the

1. Really imp new poll from @pewresearch folks: by far the most imp data point is that Trump's approval has FINALLY responded to a political event. Trump's approve % is just 29% & that can only happen bc FINALLY some Rs have deserted him- 17 pts worth of them. This is bc some R Image
2. electeds like @lisamurkowski are breaking from Trump & I swear if more elected Rs do so, if @senatemajldr supports impeachment, if more Rs like @jameslankford apologize for pushing the stolen election lie R voters will continue to move bc public

3. public sentiment is clearly conducive RIGHT NOW to a bandwagon effect against Trump. If you're a R influencer or have access to R influencers like my @ProjectLincoln peers like @Shermichael_, @RadioFreeTom @BillKristol @davidfrum @DavidAFrench @SarahLongwell25 @TaraSetmayer

1. As @nytdavidbrooks just pointed out to @SRuhle on her show, despite collapsing into a radicalism so severe they are trying to end democracy, electorally the GOP is primed for a strong cycle in 2022, something we simply CANNOT allow them to have. And one reason is in 2020 they
2. experimented w targeting low-edu voters of all races to see if they could exploit them, relying on these voters to not know the GOP's real record on race & other issues. They found they could and what they plan to bring to bear on this effort in 2022 will be huge. This is one
3. of the main reasons I'm starting @StrikePac- I'm too afraid to signal warning to the Ds and just simply hope they do something after what happened in 2020. I wanted to be SURE this gets responded to. So a massive digital effort will be made to get the truth out to these voters

1. Here is a great job by @HerreraBeutler helping avg Americans pull together/understand how Trump/GOP connects to the insurrection on the Capitol. Again, few Americans are like YOU, they don't follow news daily. They need to be reminded as to how we got here. This is why I've
2. asked the major media outlets @MSNBC @CNN @FoxNews @washingtonpost @nytimes @WSJ etc to provide clear timeline accounts that show HOW the counting of the ballots produced Biden as the winner so that people will be able to see how it went from election night leads for Trump to

1. In case you're wondering WTF is reconciliation and why is @MattGrossmann talking about it in relation to passing a spending bill?

Its the bypass our Congress has been using for YEARS now to hide the fact that it can no longer create policy under regular order so it pretends
2. new fiscal/spending/tax/healthcare! policy is altering current law so only 50 senate votes are needed and you can bypass the filibuster. This is why I'm not that popular among the very progressive people. I like to tell people the truth, deal in reality. etc & the truth is
3. even before our sitting prez was trying to pull off a coup- our country was in BAD shape bc we stopped being capable of creating policy over a decade ago, largely, unless its for the very mundane. Look around the world at other democracies & find one that is policy polarized.

1. Good news- my OG 2020 prez forecast- posted July 1st 2019, which I could not find anywhere online for awhile, is now back up, stored via @SSRN

In it I argued the D nom, no matter who is was, would dominate in the Midwest bc of surge turnout among

Though it thought GA competitive, didn't say it would for sure flip.

3. keep in mind, when this forecast released, the election analysis world was still very much entranced with the HillBilly Eulogy, non-college educated white Trump Army theory of 2020. If what I wrote seems like a no brainer bc its almost exactly what happened, you should know,
