On why she didn't think @BarackObama could be elected as the 1st black POTUS.
"I'll always wonder what brought many, women in particular to reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate, instead chose a misogynist as their president
Its amazing to me we still have to tell people about the importance of voting
In the end that's how our democracy works"
Sherman’s bill could completely block Saudi Arabia’s plans to obtain nuclear technology from US
Esp since there’s growing bipartisan support to reprimand Riyadh over Khashoggi
Very possible a Republican will co-sponsor bill when is officially introduced next 10 congressional days
The legislation would do three main things:
•Force tRump to submit a “123 Agreement”, set of rules that make it legal for the US to sell nuclear technology to another country, for congressional approval
WH accused Acosta of assaulting WH aide, we ALL saw he didn't
Madeleine Westerhout, tRump's 27 yr old executive assistant, also has title of special assistant to POTUS, a designation among WH Sr staff that ranks below assistant to POTUS like Conway
This was def planned by WH
WH revoked @Acosta press credentials after accusing him of something that was clearly orchestrated by them.
Also he never touched Madeleine, who btw is not some meek WH aide, she's 2nd in command after Conway.
The video proves Madeleine assaulted Acosta.
He should sue for libel.
Thankfully @Acosta has the full backing of his employer.
Every News organization should heed their warning & remind this gaslighting administration that Free Press is necessary for checks & balances, it's meant to be the 4th branch.
Silencing Acosta is silencing our free speech.
Matt Whitaker is overseeing Mueller investigation now that tRump fired Sessions & Rosenstein is no longer overseeing it. @MattWhitaker46 retweeted known white supremacist Steve King where he commends Sessions.
The irony is not lost on me & also, he's a racist. #WhitakerMustRecuse
It gets worse...
Summer, last year he already expressed his skepticism on the Mueller investigation...
An estimated 10,000 automated accounts that were posting tweets discouraging people from taking part in mid-term election.
Most of the accounts were posing as Democrats.
They were taken down late Sep, early Oct.
VOTE #GOTV bbc.com/news/technolog…
The Tweets included ones that discouraged Democratic men from voting, saying that would drown out the voice of women, according to 2 of the sources familiar with the flagging operation.
"We took action on relevant accounts & activity on Twitter" Twitter spokesman said in email
The removals represent early win for a fledgling effort by Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee @dccc a party group that supports Democrats running for U.S. House of Representatives
Constitution bars fed officials from taking emoluments from any King, Prince, Foreign St
Founding Fathers intent was to stop US ambassadors overseas, emissaries from new, poor, fragile country from being bought by jewels, payments from wealthy Euro states washingtonpost.com/politics/judge…
tRump still owns his company, he says he stepped back from day-to-day control. tRump Org has held several large events paid for by foreign governments at tRump’s DC hotel & reported about $150,000 in what it called foreign profits last year.
The judge found “the President’s ownership interest in tRump International Hotel & his apparent receipt of benefits from at least some foreign & state governments, as well as from Federal Government itself, suggest he has received ‘emoluments’ in violation of the Constitution.”
Next day, Stone received email from Matt Boyle, editor for Breitbart, publication Bannon led before he was named Trump’s campaign chief in August 2016.
“Assange, what’s he got?” Boyle asked. “Hope it’s good.”
Stone wrote back: “It is.”
In email to Bannon on Oct 4, days before WikiLeaks began releasing emails hacked from account of Clinton campaign chairman Podesta, Stone said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange feared for his personal safety but would nevertheless be releasing “load every week going forward.”

On PBS kids programs, such as Daniel Tiger's neighborhood inspired by Mr Rogers they teach about voting so I take every opportunity to educate my children in important issues, especially their responsibility & civic duty to vote.
To instill pride in understanding their rights.
It's up to us to raise responsible humans.
I don't understand why people don't vote when people died so they can have a right to cast a vote, to make their voices be heard.
Especially when there are many who can't vote who wish they could & are affected by the current admin.
“Something special is going on right now.
The numbers we’re seeing are unprecedented.”
—Michael McDonald, University of Florida political scientist, leading expert on early voting
If trend continues turnout could be the highest since 49% of eligible voters cast ballots in 1966 midterm, may top 50% level of midterm voter participation not seen in over a century, since election of 1914
Cheating, deceiving, lying is the only way you know how to "win"
You just pissed off the dude investigating tRump, good idea sherlock, attacking one of the best FBI directors of all time
Mueller despises liars & frauds
Check my pinned tweet
Here's a video of Mueller talkin about the importance of truth, integrity, humility
THIS is who Mueller is
The repubes are so desperate to stay in power they're catering to a traitor to try to discredit someone everyone knows is well respected & Republican
Astronomers propose Telescope System to understand the most energetic particles ever detected consisting of 200000 radio receivers around earth.
They hope to spot incredibly energetic difficult to detect neutrinos coming from distant astrophysical sources. gizmodo.com/astronomers-pr…
Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection or GRAND would hunt for these elusive particles with a greater level of sensitivity than any telescope before it.
The proposed project could potentially explain those “fast radio bursts” we often cover & map the sky with extreme precision.
The proposal, posted to arXiv server by experiment’s collaborating scientists, suggests GRAND as the next step in the new era of “multi-messenger astronomy” in which scientists are able to observe the cosmos through things other than light, like neutrinos or gravitational waves.
My heart is heavy
I try not watching News around my kids
News of Synagogue shooting on TV, my kids came out of their room, my 8 yr old can read "11 people killed by gunman"
4 yr old: why would someone kill people?
ME: there's bad people in the world
F U NRA
NOT ready for this
I couldn't change the channel fast enough.
And I had to very tactfully explain to my 4 year old girl about bad people, but I told her there is more good people in the world.
We have to be extra good to outweigh the bad.
I told her good always prevails & mommy & daddy love her.
We are having breakfast getting ready to take our kids to a pumpkin patch.
Not the kind of conversation I want to have with my kids at 6 in the f*cking morning on a Sunday when we have a family outing planned.
I wasn't ready for this convo, thanks a lot tRump & gun crazies.
An outbreak of measles rampaging across Europe, taking huge toll.
1st 6 months of 2018, there were 41K recorded cases of easily preventable viral infection.
People are dying from measles.
This was unbelievable 5 - 10 yrs ago.
Measles is potentially deadly. sciencealert.com/measles-deaths…
Rason for severity of outbreak is fall in vaccination rates
In order to prevent outbreaks at least 95% of population must be vaccinated with 2 doses of measles, mumps, rubella(MMR) vaccine.
Some parts of Europe, according to World Health Org, vaccination coverage is less than 70%
"Main factor leading to outbreaks
Unacceptable to have in 21st century diseases that should've & could've been eradicated."
—Anca Paduraru, European Commission, Brussels
CDC studied growing number of measles outbreaks in US, found 70% of new cases occur in unvaccinated patients
He paints us all with a broad brush of being everything we're not.
Using fear to make people who idolize him attack the people he attacks.
Fear is his weapon to control his cult
You don't see any of us going to a white church & hurting people
We don't desecrate their graveyards
We don't ship explosive packages to GOP reps
Not 1 of us has gone on a shooting spree in the name of minorities & marginalized he attacks
You know why?
Because we're not the enemy.
We're not the monsters Fox News, Breitbart, etc wants you to believe.
That tRump wants you to be afraid of.
What we are is human beings.
We're mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, grandkids, aunts, uncles, cousins, sons & daughters.
