(THREAD) Paul Manafort and Rick Gates are now indicted. This thread analyzes legal and political aspects of their indictment and surrender.
1/ Draw no conclusion from the two being allowed to surrender rather than being arrested at home/work. It often happens in nonviolent cases.

I’d be more shocked by MAGA lies about Biden and his health if they weren’t *identical* to the ones they told in 2020 about Biden and his health and *identical* to the ones they told in 2016 about Clinton and her health

They even used heavily edited/doctored videos back then too
We need to do more than just remember what we had for breakfast—we need to remember that the Republican Party no longer exists; that the MAGA Party isn’t a political organization; we’re in a hot information civil war; and *every single MAGA tactic* in that war is 100% predictable
The latest lie, which the new Musk Algorithm has now managed to get trending, is the easily disproven one that Joe Biden pausing for three seconds to soak in massive applause from a crowd was him freezing up Mitch McConnell-style, a claim so stupid even *Brit Hume* was like er no

(POLL) Did you know that Trump has privately floated to donors replacing income taxes with tariffs, which economists say would cost almost every American family $5,000/year *more* than they pay in income taxes right now while giving an annual $1.5 million tax cut to the top 0.1%?
PS/ Make no mistake, this is a proposal to send the United States into a Second Great Depression—a self-inflicted wound Trump might then use to attempt to seize dictatorial power and declare martial law. You *cannot imagine* the chaos and flame this proposed insanity would cause.

BREAKING NEWS: Along Utterly Predictable Ideological Lines—6-3—the Supreme Court Decrees That Machine Guns Being in the Hands of Every Wacko in America Is As American As Apple Pie or Storming the U.S. Capitol to Kill the Vice President of the United States…
We. Are. Lost.
(PS) Understand something: Congress Can Pass a Bill on It is just something these radicals say when Congress is controlled by their team and will not do so. If a Democratic Party-run Congress passed a bill banning bump stocks, these six would say it violates the Second Amendment.

Just found out that Elon Musk and all his creepy white supremacist friends are having a major b**** session about me here on Twitter

Some mildly threatening stuff, some vaguely antisemitic stuff, some claims about my mental health

IOW, typical neo-Nazi loser projection/snit-fit
What amazes me about this is *not* that Elon Musk follows me obsessively, as I have known that for well over a year, but rather that I just posted a thread in which his customers gave him over 500 suggestions for improving Twitter and instead of doing that he is obsessing over me
By the way—for anyone wondering why these guys are obsessed with me—understand that it has little to do with any special talents I possess but merely the fact that I catalog what these cretins actually say in their dank little digital lairs and *that* they absolutely cannot abide

BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump, Long Rumored to Be A Prescription Drug Abuser, Given Special Treatment and Allowed to Evade a Drug Test During His First Post-Conviction Probation Meeting—Raising Questions About Whether MAGA’s Nominee for Most Powerful Person on Earth Is Now on Drugs
There’s been no explanation whatsoever for why this convicted felon gets to do what would normally be mandatory in-person meetings over Zoom, but we can already see the value in this special treatment for Trump, as it’s *essential* that he hide any illicit drug use from voters.
Remember—the man was convicted of trying to hide critical information from voters in the run-up to an election. Now the *very first* post-conviction decision made by the court system is possibly helping him to hide *another* critical revelation from voters who are entitled to it.

Just remember that every far-reich-wing MAGA attack on Dr. Fauci is a desperate attempt to deflect attention from the fact that *Donald Trump* so mishandled the pandemic that multiple studies have said that he is responsible for hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans dying.
