American imagination artists living in the PNW. Voted Bernie '16-'20. Independent Lefties. #MedicareForALL now! Let's directly abolish poverty - and war, too.

@Ihavenousefora1 @shipman96 She equated Jimmy D.'s simple "F you AOC" on youtube w/ actual violence. Which was a response to her gaslighting activists on forcing a M4A floor vote. And she seems to have an army of "shut down" trolls who speech-police people on the left for challenging her - 1/
@Ihavenousefora1 @shipman96 not via logical argument, but fallacious ad hominem & strawman attacks. Trolling, basically. And I've been noticing her own rhetorical tactics lately. She engages in a lot of disingenuous dissembling, which I find pretty creepy in a kind of foreshadowing sense as to where 2/
@Ihavenousefora1 @shipman96 this is heading for her, politically. All her bullshit over tossed salad on home video RE VZ, too, along with her "I haven't decided yet about Assange." I mean, I'll say it too: fk you, AOC. 3/

#SinglePayerSunday Real #MedicareForAll supporters don't insist "citizenship" be a requirement or advocate felonizing the delivery of health care to the undocumented. They also don't pretend AOC's gaslighting on forcing Pelosi to hold a #FloorVote is "wisdom." It was ka-ka. 1/
2/ Last but not least, they also don't get a bunch of trolls to gang up on, or bully and harass, advocates of #ForceTheVote

#SinglePayerSunday Wonder who we're referencing?

Health care is a human right! Pass it now! #MedicareForALL (and by "All," we mean ALL). Farmworkers are human beings who need health care too! So are all people in the United States! Delivering health care is not a crime under ANY circumstance!

And now his impeachment & removal, at this last stage of the game, while probably a good idea to barr him from future fed offices, is nevertheless another distraction by Congress to evade their responsibility to pass #MedicareForAllnow & #retroactiveStimulus2000 in this #pandemic
It also makes him ineligible 4 benefits under The Former Pres's Act. Tho frankly, I think many members of Congress should be ineligible for theirs (healthcare, for example, NTM pensions) while they neglect responsibilities to the American public on #M4A & liveable #socialsecurity
On second thought, I'll change "probably a good idea" to "perhaps" - needing time to think about it more carefully. And given the grave deceptions and hypocrisy of Congress altogether.

There's also their interpretations of law AFA Trump is concerned on this specific matter.

*5 dead at Capitol* Such drama. They keep pushing this b.s.

2 died of natural causes - a heart attack & stroke. 1, in an accident of their own making.

Only deaths relevant to what happened is the possible murder of a police officer & the police murder of an unarmed protester*
* We know she was unarmed bc she was using her arms to climb. Like, who couldn't handcuff or non-lethally arrest or stop. She was executed while climbing. Maybe she had mixed-up opinions, but these same people defending an execution are also claiming a moral high ground on-
"respect for the Rule of Law" "There is nothing higher than the Rule Of Law"

Well WTH do they think COTUS is? It's o.k. to execute her bc you don't like her opinions? I don't either - but it doesn't mean it's o.k. for the police to execute her. That *is* yr "Higher Rule Of Law"

1/ Quite a thing watching liberals advocate 50 years in the U.S. gulags for putting your feet up on Pelosi's desk & diminishing him on the basis of WC status (i.e. "the guy who changes my oil at Jiffy Lube"). However reprehensible the man's other views & the grotesque disparities
2/ in justice in our legal system - on the basis of BOTH race & CLASS - the point is not making the Kafkaesque cruelty apply to everyone instead - but the reverse.
3/ Figuratively speaking, this is exactly what we should be seeing, in challenge to Pelosi's BOGUS honor & authority, but ITO of the real bread & butter issues facing all Americans - instead of the highway robbery instigated and protected by BOTH Democrats and Republicans -

@BenjaminNorton VZ has no death penalty either - while we stand among the worst w/ largest prison incarceration in the world, we have disgusting gulags.

Plus, VZ has among the cleanest elections systems, w/Maduro "the dictator" elected by popular landslide via a full national audit.
@BenjaminNorton +they are moving forward in social programs at what would be considered break-neck pace in the U.S. where we can't get anything done w/that cesspool of corruption & incompetence in Congress - and I, personally, have no confidence left in our elections-primaries or general.
@BenjaminNorton It's a bad joke listening to the DP telling people to vote in primaries "like your life depended on it" - as if it was an election against Trump? It's the damn primary totally rigged for Biden. So when you see voter suppression in George - it's for Biden. @Greg_Palast

Venezuelan posters express pride in their military armed at the border. There are Colombian mercenaries - from what we're understanding - called 'guarimberos' who are basically paid street gang members on the Colombian side. They are NOT "VZ protesters" as some MSM are reporting.
2/ We shared other video earlier of these individuals putting together molotov cocktails, throwing them into crowds of non-violent VZs on the VZ side w/the border now closed to these terrorists. The MSM was NOT sharing these videos - only of them throwing them at property as if -
3/ this were a perfectly normal way to protest. Imagine their reaction to U.S. protesters doing this. We have a double-standard bc the MSM is supporting a false coup narrative to create a pretext for invasion or war. We also shared video of these mercenaries on the Colombian side
