Seditionist Stewart Rhodes' news broke on 1/13/22. It was a milestone day for 🇺🇸.

During what seemed like the longest year ever, the DOJ kept quiet on evidence they already had. Garland is taking each step at a time of his choosing. Charges need to stick.

I really am heartened and relieved to know that this seditionist (one of many to come) was caught and is now in custody. The affidavit is so detailed. It's a clear sign to everyone that the DOJ is "on it." I can understand the skepticism of folk before now, but hear this:
Not only did Garland clearly have the goods on this oxygen thief, he waited until the 1st anniversary had passed. We got to pay our respects to the fallen, injured, witnesses, loved ones, and everyone else directly affected, without this overshadowing that.

And it exposed some.
Some of the bad actors. There are thousands of people who played some kind of active, enabling, or leadership role in the first physical attack of the ongoing insurgency. The delay coaxed a few out of their shell to further self-incriminate. eg Meadows, McCarthy etc.
Now that it's obvious to all that the DOJ does mean business about it's obligations and public promises concerning 1/6, I'd wager that a few of those current and future defendants will go quiet on some of their actions.

But it's too late for them. DOJ has the evidence.

I trust POTUS to ensure that every possible step taken before these crucial 2022 midterms helps the only major party that is pro-democracy win as much as it can this year.🌊

So, in the words of Churchill on VE Day 1945:

Brief thread: The Republic of Serbia

Two current world news stories this week reminded me of Serbia's recent history of civil unrest and war:

>The first #SeditiousConspiracy charges filed in relation to 1/6.

>Novak Djokovic's twice cancelled Australian entry visa.
The first 1/6 seditionist charged with sedition invoked former Serbian leader Slobodan Milošević as the loser of the 2000 presidential election, who was overthrown by a violent uprising.

Except that he would have been on the side of Milošević.
Novak Djokovic is a highly successful tennis champion, who has brought shame upon his native Serbia by repeatedly and brazenly mistreating Australians during a severe Covid wave.

AU affects the pandemic in nearby NZ, so I have real skin in the game.…

ICYMI, this British scandal is extremely important for that country and several others.

PM Boris Johnson must resign. The sooner he does, the better.

IMO, there is no excuse for any elected or appointed official breaching lockdown rules like this.…
In my experience both inside and outside government, such scandals from time to time can be forgiven BUT: not during a life and death national emergency like this pandemic.

One of the benefits of a Westminster system is that a PM or a government can be removed at any time.
Those involved in events that were both legally and morally/ethically wrong are not just out of touch with the needs of the public: they are clueless about PR and common sense; which often coincide.

Whatever country you're talking about, those at the top used to do better.

Thread: For my fellow American democracy lovers, of any stripe.

This first anniversary was an emotional rollercoaster for me. We'll have to heal ourselves and democracy, while unceasingly fighting for justice at the same time.


Imma watch and re-watch this strong, timely, presidential address over and over. Been waiting for these things to be said, inside that sacred place.

Some more great videos to watch from today.

That's true, the level and type of co-ordination became clearer after the event.

But days prior (see my next tweet) and on 1/6 itself, there was already enough publicly available info to know this was a coup attempt with a terrorist attack involved.

Sickening isn't it?
I gotta provide some context about my 12/27/20 tweet below. I was almost out of the cult & had accepted #TrumpLost. But I kept an open mind about supposed "evidence" GQP Senators promised to reveal on 1/6. That was the last possible legal "remedy."
I had underestimated the level of violence, but plenty of people closer to the subject gave explicit warnings on Twitter, that evidently were ignored by authorities before 1/6.

From early on I wrote about the yawning gaps in routine security planning:

Very quick thread on #FreeJimStewartson @jimstewartson

(I added his username in anticipation of a positive result from his appeal below. Also FW @radicalizedpod please & subscribe to their podcast. It's brilliant, as is Jim.)

I am sick to death of having to beg Twitter to reinstate accounts that are actually on the good side, ie law abiding people volunteering their time and throwing everything they have at the dire emergency caused by far right fascism throughout the GOP.
#FreeJimStewartson is one of the pro-democracy activists I first started reading on my journey out of the "maga" mvt culminating on 1/6/21, almost one year ago today.

His evidence & arguments are among the best I've seen. H/t @rickyx2001 @gal_suburban @davetroy for pic:

Her post is a good eg of the fact-free "logic" used in the far right fascist GQP. It's an educational tool. (MTG is just a tool.😉)

On the upside, her Twitter a/c had about 500k followers, and at Telegram it's 150k. Many are bots. But in any case, the vocal minority are TINY.
My advice to fellow pro-democracy fighters:

Always remember how tiny the group of literal anti-Americans is. An unknown number of 2020 R voters left within weeks of the election & they're not going back.

So do not let this place get you down, ever.
Both sides claim to be "the silent majority" all the time.

Right now the actual silent majority includes D voters, #XGOP folk like me, and everyone who didn't vote R last time. That's a huge number.

To win 2022 we* have to Get Out The Vote like never before.
