Answer: not many.”…

I understand the political point here but I think it’s time to take some extremists off the table forever politically. Trump is on the edge of indictment and charging uphill at DeSantis who may or may not be able to hold the top. 2/ The loony tunes in the Freedom Caucus know they won’t have the votes to elect Jim Jordan. They are just extorting @GOPLeader and his thug lobbyist @JeffMillerCA2TX who threatened the @USChamber and demanded the firing of CEO Suzanne Clark. They want concessions and control.

@JeffMillerCA2TX is the 2020’s version of Manafort, Davis, Stone and Abramoff in Washington DC. He is protected by the DC access media like a white rhino on an African game preserve. @politico was celebrating him on election eve. This is how it works. Immunity for tips. 2/ @JeffMillerCA2TX was one of Trump’s biggest bundlers and is @GOPLeader best friend. When @GOPLeader’s speaker campaign was collapsing on the eve of the @SpeakerRyan era I was asked to meet @GOPLeader in a Denver hotel to help save his faltering bid. It was too late.

Questions for @MittRomney.

Why have you refused to endorse @MikeLeeforUtah. He is a colleague and fellow Republican?

The answer is:

@MittRomney is a man of principle. he knows Lee is unfit because Lee tried to overthrow the US Government. He will not support him. Good. 2/ How did @MittRomney arrive at his current position of neutrality between a seditious US Senator @MikeLeeforUtah and an American Hero and Patriot @EvanMcMullin?

How important is magic letter R to @MittRomney? Would he remain neutral if @HerschelWalker were the R Utah nominee?

This is LOL crazy fun. @jdvance1 looks like he is about to cry as he denounces the oligarchy to the prep school fascist.

@JDVance1 started a fake opioid charity.

@JDVance1 is a liar

@JDVance1 is saying @TimRyan is going to do sex change surgery on all the kids is weird 2/ Does Ohio want to elect a weirdo to be in the US Senate? It doesn’t

When a candidate like @JDVance1 is closing his campaign saying @TimRyan is going to steal the children and do sex changes on them it usually means the candidate like @JDVance1 is losing. JD=Fake Charity

.@MichaelDell. This quote is from a TR speech given in Paris at the Sorbonne. It was titled Citizenship in a Republic. @elonmusk doesn’t measure up. At all.

This is the famous quote from a deep speech. You are applying it in a fortune cookie manner to a current event. Bad take 2/ Elon is in business with the Chinese and Saudi’s to undermine the American way of life. That is who owns this platform. This platform @Twitter can be used for the cause of democracy insurgency aimed at undermining the stability of its assaulters starting with @elonmusk

My friend @morningmika is wrong. It is too late to stop the political violence.

It could have been stopped. It wasn’t. It has arrived and it will worsen. The question is how hot the fire will burn.

@JoeNBC is correct with his analysis.

I predicted the violence in Sep 21 2/ Fascism is exactly the right word to use and it has been for a long time now. The threat is real.

Last night a faction of a @FoxNews audience went crazy when @TimRyan said the 1/6 extremist mob killed a cop and wounded 140 others. @BretBaier sat in shameful silence.

.@Jonathan chair is a must read. The @washingtonpost media critic who let himself be intimidated from practicing journalism is to be commended for speaking the truth about a vital issue.

Once again this story revolves around @nyt media corruption. It was covered up. 2/ I have spent hundreds of hours on television sets during the last decade. The overwhelming majority of people I have been on with flip their phones over and stare silently at it during the break observing the reaction of the Twitter mob. Cowardice has infected politics and

All of America was able to witness an extraordinary moment on @FoxNews tonight. It is the most corrupt institution in the United States run by the most dangerous immigrant who was ever welcomed here @rupertmurdoch. Two Australian Prime Ministers @MrKRudd & @TurnbullMalcolm 2/ have been fierce observers of the harm @rupertmurdoch’s company have done to America, Aus and the UK. Tonight two @FoxNews anchors @BretBaier @marthamaccallum delivered a clinic on dishonest journalistic hackery with their hostile, loaded and ludicrous badgering of @timryan.

The hostility, dishonesty and hackery of Bret Baier and @marthamaccallum during their moderation of a @FoxNews town hall between @JDVance1 and @TimRyan was beyond description and a historic marker in American media corruption. What a joke. Truly. No words. 2/The @TimRyan performance was epic. He completely defenestrated the hostility of the anchors with a smile on his face. He confronted extremism, lies and delusions with epic skill. It was a beacon for the whole of the Democratic Party. He was fierce, truthful and authentic.

The hypocrisy of the American political media with regard to its coverage of @JohnFetterman is something to behold.

I’m going to try and decipher it. Fetterman had a stroke. He is recovering from it and has temporary processing issues that can be accommodated. 2/ @SenFeinstein is completely unable to discharge her public duties. This is widely known in Washington DC but it is suppressed and covered up by the same media who are piling on answers that were disjointed but coherent from Fetterman.

The political media is profoundly corrupt. It has profoundly hurt the credibility of ethical journalists and the beating heart of access journalism where tidbits are traded for narrative positioning is on full display here. @JohnFetterman settled the fitness question with answers 2/ Why isn’t character an element of fitness? @DrOz is a certified fraud and snake oil salesman from New Jersey who has fully embraced MAGA extremism? Why has the @nytimes political desk exculpated @DrOz from accountability? It’s because they aren’t journalists.

The destruction of @adidas stock price will likely be permanent as the leadership crisis worsens and the brand is rejected by its athletes. The immoral dithering of @adidas turned their stripes into runes. What a great case study for @HarvardHBS @StanfordGSB @Wharton @YaleSOM 2/ The total emptiness of corporate sloganeering and pie in the sky pronouncements has been illuminated @PRWeekUS @prweekuknews. The communications response wasn’t just terrible, it was immoral.

The crisis in American journalism is severe. Access journalism has played a significant role in advancing extremism and destabilizing American politics.

Below is an example of American journalism infused with moral purpose and clarity. This work is an urgent matter. 2/ The documenting of these crimes is a life and death business in Ukraine. This information was not collected in tawdry exchanges and tidbit quid pro quos. None of the journalists involved will ever appear in gossipy and cliquey DC, “did you see me there!” mentions in club notes

Most Corporate Communications departments are bloated, bureaucratic and utterly inept on a good day. @adidas is a great example of a soulless company that incinerated its brand. It’s up in smoke. Turned to ash. Gone. Why?

No conviction. No beliefs. All Schtick. All Bullshit 2/ The @adidas stock has been crushed by revulsion. The company has been unmasked. It certainly isn’t alone. @adidas is just the swimmer who got eaten in the shark tank they chose to swim in. What a disgrace to Germany. What a global sports embarrassment.

This is a jaw dropping piece of TV political journalism from the most elite news unit in the US alongside @60Minutes which is @frontlinepbs.

This documentary should utterly shame the DC based transactional access based political reporters who have completely missed the story 2/ The story is the rise of a dangerous extremism. One thing is clear from watching this. The American crisis is just beginning. Michael Flynn is an evangelist of civil war and societal fracture. He is just getting started. His power and fame will grow. They are training for war.

This post is about the total political incompetence of the Senate Majority PAC controlled by @SenSchumer and run by JB Poersch. Democratic Party donors should be irate.

Here is a quote by Poersch. 2/ First, @TimRyan isn’t running to put Republicans on defense for @chuckschumer. He’s running against a real political extremist named @JDVance1 who is a fraud, a liar, an advocate of Replacement Theory and the founder of a fake opioid charity who has called for ending democracy

I was wrong.

I believed it was impossible for any human to deliver a brutal debate beat down of Lil’ Marco @marcorubio worse than the one @ChrisChristie gave him pre NH primary in 2016.

The wide eyed Lil’Marco panic face still haunts me.

@valdemings took it to a new level 2/ Watching the cowardly, lying, demagogic Rubio be exposed by a woman of exceptional character and accomplishment was mesmerizing.

It was like a scene from a Sorkin script but it was real.

There she stood @valdemings.

Tough as nails and fighting for ordinary people.

This is an astonishing story by the @washingtonpost. This is JOURNALISM.

This is a living refutation of the transactional-access reporting calamity that has destroyed trust in the American media.

This is a story about greed, betrayal and corruption among retired US military. 2/ This conduct should be made illegal. Congress should act.

The disclosure of this information was fought legally for 2 years because it is shameful.

Another retired USMC ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ has joined John Allen in abject disgrace. This time it is General Jim Jones, Saudi whore.

I would like to see a news reporter ask @HerschelWalker this line of questions. I don’t understand why no one has.

1. Are you a police officer?

2. why do you think you are a police officer?

3. If you aren’t a police officer why do you have a badge?

4. But it’s not real? 5. Why do you think it’s real?

6. I’d like to hand you Delta Airline Wings. They are real. Are you a pilot?

7/ If you are a cop, what is your call sign? Tell us about your most dangerous arrest?

8/ If you are a cop and you threatened a shoot out against the police 👮‍♀️ 👇

.@ProjectLincoln should either be professionalized and reformed or shut down. I founded it. i left it a year ago. The @Showtime documentary documents some of the most despicable and unethical behavior I have ever seen. I would like to see the following things happen.

1. @reedgalen must step down from the @ProjectLincoln board because his lie and coverup destroyed the organization as much as @madrid_mike @ronsteslow and @madrid_mike @JenniferHorn did with their fame seeking and narcissism.
