1. This is a warning to the cable industry. Evidence of your industry practices shows you force your subscribers to subsidize a pro-domestic terrorist propaganda organ @FoxNews and its anti-American employees like @seanhannity @TuckerCarlson
2. @IngrahamAngle and @foxandfriends. You must terminate the illegal contracts with @rupertmurdoch and his anti-American Fox News, that unlawfully force customers to pay a subsidy to a pro-domestic terrorist organization media group. Failure to do it should result in lawsuits
3. in every district seeking five-year rebates to every customer, times three under the Sherman Act.

It's a simple theory:

Most cable companies have market power. Because they all practice this violation of law the market power won't be an issue. But because they all practice
4. it, IMO, they may be also engaged in price fixing and collusion. But assume for this, customers have no choice to avoid the Fox pro-terrorist subsidy in the relevant market, that I believe to be so.

The Cable industry pricing does not allow you to NOT pay the Fox subsidy.
5. The product that they sell is cable. That is the tying product. They force you to pay for @FoxNews. That is the "tied product." IMO it's a "Tie-In" Agreement that is a Sherman Act violation. It can be remedied in a treble damage lawsuit and enjoined.
6. If you lose you will pay all attorney's fees and could be charged with a criminal Sherman Act violations. Be smart, terminate your deal to subsidize domestic terrorists. Make the fools who want to be lied to by @FoxNews pay top dollar for the privilege.
7. If you don't address this immediately, I will work to see the DOJ @JusticeATR pursues you and hope to see you all in Bankruptcy court soon. Be smart. Don't do business with domestic terrorists when it can cost you so much. @GetSpectrum @comcast @comcastbusiness @Verizon
8. @CoxComm @MediaComUS @ATT

What I suggest is the DOJ supervise the front end development that allows ala cart customer selected content. This selection should show the users the costs of your subsidy payment to the content provider and select only what they want.
9. This is simple programming and there is no excuse for it. If your industry business practices require this Tie-In, they need to change. And until they do you are accruing a liability of three times the amount of the forced charge for the previous five years. @NewYorkStateAG

1. A reminder: @POTUS Trump, @IvankaTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @tedcruz @HawleyMO @replouiegohmert @RepMoBrooks @MarkMeadows @ScottforFlorida and the other #SeditiousSeven have not done full noisy withdrawals from the Trump crime family seditious conspiracy & insurrection.
2. Therefore, all the crimes that come from the Trump conspiracy remain chargable to these conspirators. They can and should be charged if any acts of violence occur in DC or at state capitols and the full extent of the punishments that attend these crimes should determine
3. whether they are afforded bail. And no lawful punishment should be off the table when they are charged. @SenHydeSmith @CynthiaMLummis @RogerMarshallMD @TTuberville @hogangidley45 @PressSec

1. IMO James Jeffrey is a dangerous Islamist and should be shunned and IMO can be charged, along with Trump and @mikepompeo, with Christian, Ezidi and Kurdish genocide.

2. Remember: Erdogan is ISIS. He armed them. Fed them. Gave them hospital care to return them to the battle & allowed them to run an Ezidi slave market in Gaziantep, Turkey. With top cover air support for the SDF we can expel Turkey's ISIS and Al-Qaeda force in 60 days.
3. DOJ should alos consider charging Erdogan for sanction violations.

Once all of Northern Syria from Derik to Afrin is free of Turkeys' ISIS/Al-Qaeda force, if they are willing, the SDF can assist in recruiting a Sunni force to liberate Idlib and end the Jihadist control of

1. Did @SenateGOP @HouseGOP who advocated overthrow of our election commit a crime? I think they did and they can and should be charged under 18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government. First, my analysis of the statute focuses on whether the member advocated
2. the overthrow of the US Govt. Our nation is a democratic Republic. We have established a Constitution that provides for electing our President. The process has existed for over 215 years without being attacked by members of Congress. The move by members like @tedcruz and
3. @HawleyMO to support changing the votes of duly certified electors in six states to impose a White Supremacist dictatorship was overthrow. Nothing in our Constitution or Law provides legality to such an act. It was an attempted coup, and a reasonable juror could

1. There's a video of Pence chairing a meeting of security heads preparing for the inauguration. Chris Wray gave a calm, detailed description of the threat that he admits FBI is not clear whether all threats are actionable, but he seems to be well aware of the players.
2. This may be bumpy, but IMO it will identify a large percentage of the armed white-supremacist group members in the US and lawfully obtained electronic evidence that can support thousands of convictions. Wray's demeanor does not portray someone who is in over his head.
3. Trumps war on the FBI IMO will motivate the FBI to be professional and thorough and ensure that all members of Trump's Orc army live their remaining days in custody.
Because they are now moving into crimes like treason that carry death, and some have likely affiliated with a

1. If you’re making plans for DC on Jan 21, I predict its chances of being sacked by then are about 50-50. #Orcs @maddow @Lawrence @FrankFigliuzzi1 @BeschlossDC
2. Trump's pardoning of monsters was not random. He is building an army of Orcs. Evil, willing to do his bidding. We must prepare to meet them and defend the Capitol. But be assured if you don't remove him, he'll burn DC. @DCPoliceDept @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer
3. You have no idea how outgunned the DC National Guard unit is in the face of Trump's Orc army. We need an airborne division. Nothing short. And that won't happen with Trump in power. Remove him or DC is already lost. @VP @senatemajldr

1. Reason @POTUS Donald Trump must be removed immediately is because he's coordinating another attack, this time with a fully armed force of murderous traitors. @SenateGOP @HouseGOP & seditionists like @laurenboebert @mtgreenee @RepGosar who won't remove him, give aid & comfort
2. to that force. That is a chargeable offense and may be charged if we don't interdict the attack by having @VP become our loyal commander in chief. A reasonable juror could find that the Trump supporters in Congress are acting to advance the success of the coming attack.
