#BREAKING Jury Reaches Verdict For 3 Men Charged With Killing Ahmaud Arbery

That's awfully fast. I fear the White men who killed an unarmed Black man in Georgia will go free. That would be another win for vigilantism. And a devastating loss for the family & justice in America.
💥Travis McMichael: GUILTY of ALL COUNTS—Malice Murder, Felony Murder, Aggravating Assault etc.

Jury Finds Gregory McMichael: GUILTY of Murder in Killing of #AhmaudArbery
💥Jury Finds William Byran NOT Guilty of Malice Murder in Death of Ahmaud Arbery, but Guilty of Felony Murder

ALL THREE FOUND GUILTY - There's hope for America yet!

🚨 BIG #Jan6 #coup news—from the depraved horse's mouth, as it were

Trump admits that he knew—at the time—that the angry mob he directed to go to the Capitol to fight were hunting to kill Mike Pence in the Capitol. And Trump defends it—on tape: "Well, the people were very angry"
Trump's all-consuming self-promoting depravity is shocking tho not surprising.

Also pretty shocking: Trump admits in @JonKarl audio that what he wanted Pence to do on Jan6—what he directed his angry mob to get Pence to do on 1/6—was only 50/50 legal, according to HIS own lawyers
@jonkarl Trump's "50/50" remark shows he knew his harebrained coup using Pence to stop Biden's election certification—cementing his loss—was unconstitutional. His own kraken "constitutional scholars" told him 50/50. Yet he sicced a violent mob on lawmakers anyway. And watched it on TV.

🤯What an insane story (and world!) >> Fugitive U.S. Capitol Rioter Who Thinks Biden Stole Presidential Election Seeks Asylum in … #Belarus

Who's gonna tell him?😅 themoscowtimes.com/2021/11/08/us-…
Wanted by the FBI, Capitol rioter Evan Neumann of MILL VALLEY, CA appeared on #Belarus State TV saying he fled to Ukraine, but likely worried about extradition back to US, he made the genius move to seek asylum in Belarus—land of the forever dictator & rigged & stolen elections.
🧵on Evan Neumann from upscale Marin County, CA. He's seeking asylum in Belarus & fleeing a 6-count indictment for attacking police in 1/6 Capitol siege.

Russian media's all over the MAGA line calling rioters "political prisoners". So prepare for lots more Evan on propaganda TV.

Democrats don't have a branding problem in rural America. They have a GOP media monopoly problem. The key fact in this story: white rural voters are fueled by a conservative media bubble that speaks in apocalyptic terms, convincing ppl that America's on the brink b/c of Dems.
Democrats can have the best branding, but if voters only consume right-wing radio & TV, right-wing propagandists are defining Dems. Dems' message can't reach voters living in GOP propaganda media bubble. That's what's gotten progressively worse. We're seeing it in these numbers.
Right-wing media is a drumbeat of demonization & disinformation. Have you listened to talk radio lately?? It's North Korea level crazy assaulting ppl's brains w/ fear & anxiety. Ds & sane Rs should join forces, buy radio stations, launch news channels in those media markets. BUT

🤨#Durham's indictment of #Danchenko on 5 counts of lying to the FBI suggests in ¶5 that both Crossfire Hurricane & the Mueller probe "relied substantially" on the Steele Dossier ("Company Report"). But really this is only about the Carter Page FISAs. Don't write like this, kids.
Still reading Danchenko indictment, but this early sentence in ¶5 seems to confirm Durham's political mission to nip at the edges to create the FALSE impression that Mueller's Russia investigation is discredited. I mean "In connection with" is doing a whole lotta BS work here imo
ICYMI The Mueller report debunked the Steele dossier. How do you "substantially rely on" something you debunk? You don't. But Durham's indictment of Danchenko tosses it in anyway, w/ a specious reference to the Special Counsel's Russia investigation. Argh. apnews.com/article/techno…

🧵Nobel laureate journalist @MariaRessa explains succinctly the existential threat @Facebook poses to democracies around the world:

Facebook is the world's largest distributor of news. Yet how it distributes news is governed by algorithms that amplify anger & hate and divide us.
@mariaressa @Facebook .@MariaRessa: Research shows that lies laced with anger & hate spread faster and further than facts. By spreading lies in this way, @Facebook divides society & radicalizes users.

If you say a lie 1000 times, it becomes a fact. If we don't have facts, we can't have truth.

Of course, Fox: 2 months after he appeared on Foxnews railing against the Russia investigation, Eastman was sitting in the Oval Office with Trump.

The Lawyer Behind the Coup Memo on How Trump Could Stay in Office Despite Losing Election (better headline)
😳“Soon, Mr. Eastman was meeting face to face at Mr. Trump’s urging with the attorney general, William P. Barr, and telling him how Mr. Trump could unilaterally impose limits on birthright citizenship.”

Eastman is just chock full of fringe far-right autocratic ideas, isn’t he?
Shocker: fascist AND racist. Eastman got on the Trump campaign’s radar with a birther-y article he wrote questioning @KamalaHarris’ legitimacy to be POTUS b/c her parents were immigrants. Jenna Ellis—another disbarment waiting to happen—brought it to Trump’s attention in a tweet.
