Posted this the day after #Mueller testified before Congress, and all kinds of people said it was conspiracy theory. #Rosenstein#Barr are not cowards, they are the foot soldiers of the corrupt fascist @GOP regime who know they can act with impunity and get away with it.

Barr is the most arrogantly corrupt official I have ever seen. What a smug entitled sociopath. Must be nice for all those working for him. A depraved specimen of nihilism masquerading as a man of law. How does @TheJusticeDept put up with the stench. #Barr#Durham#Scam
LAURENCE BRITT wrote about the common signs of fascism in APRIL 2003, after researching seven fascists regimes in great depth.
“...the willingness of his attorney general, William Barr, to burn the country’s democratic institutions to the ground to preserve this administration’s hold on power.” @thenationthenation.com/article/societ…
“...they believe their cause, their interests, are really the interests of the nation and therefore anything that keeps them in power is in the national interest. Does that make you a fascist? It kind of looks that way, doesn’t it?”
“What he saw scared him; he remembered the use of paramilitaries by fascist leaders in 1930s Europe, where he was born, and he feared he was now witnessing a slide into paramilitarism in the United States.”
“The investments were made through a Russian technology magnate, Yuri Milner, who also holds a stake in a company co-owned by Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser.” #FaceBook#Russiatheguardian.com/news/2017/nov/…
Facebook’s new ad policy announcement is designed to fool the media and the public into thinking the company is taking disinformation seriously; this new policy is pointless - and may even do more harm than good. mediamatters.org/facebook/faceb…
“The rule of law is imperiled, our unity has been shattered, the service sector has been obliterated, and major cities are suffering. Black Americans, who have endured half a millennium of wickedness and brutality, now face more injustice and death.” theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
“Trump’s party has no platform other than the promise of more wealth for the few and “law and order” for the dispossessed. His presidency has seen markets rise, and corporations prosper, even as ordinary Americans suffer and go without, in this economy of larceny and lies.”
Everyone seems willing to give Mueller a pass for his Boy Scout ways, his silence, and his opacity before Congress and thereafter. “Silence without action is also consent” Unless he comes clean, clear, completely, and without equivocation, it is simply #Infamy and well deserved.
I wrote what you see in this graphic the day after Mueller testified. It was clear the fix was in, and Mueller was passing the buck via a bridge to nowhere. It was a scam by con artists. #Infamy#Traitors#Treason
"The @TheJusticeDept secretly took steps to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign keeping investigators from completing an examination of Trump’s decades-long personal & business ties to Russia."
“Dr. Greenwood believes that clinically diagnosing Trump as a Psychopath, based on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist — Revised (PCL-R), renders all other diagnoses obsolete—and allows us to focus on the real problem.” thedailyedge.substack.com/p/diagnosis-ps…
“If one meets the rigorous diagnostic criteria for this disorder, there is a lot we can say about him, and we can say it with a good deal of authority.
And, indeed, Donald Trump does meet those criteria.”
“Stochastic terrorism is the new norm—we’ve seen the party shrug at the MAGA bomber, the El Paso shooter and now the Kenosha killer. We’ve seen the President exchange love letters with dictators, defend wife beaters, endorse pedophiles, and hail the success of QAnon candidates.”
They’re pushing Melanie as a new Jackie Kennedy? Of course she is, these people are some kind of depraved. Melania Trump is a goldigging “model” like escorts, pole & lap dancers are “models”. This is your brain on the cocaine-meth cocktail @GOP#KochAineMitch#CocaineConvention
Dedicated To The Evangelical Bommers, Goobers & Rubes of the @GOP who are pushing the notion that Melanie is the new Jackie Kennedy because she had some flunky plant some roses.
#TheresNoEvidence Well alrighty then! Check out the thread for more things for which there's no evidence.
There’s no evidence that #LadyG is not a “pay what you think is fair” sex worker who wears “Made in Russia” sequined knee pads while on the job. #TheresNoEvidence
There’s no evidence that #KochAineMitch is not “the most corrupt senator in the history of American politics” who wears “Made in China” sequined knee pads while out collecting from donors... A twofer grift value proposition. #TheresNoEvidence
“A pandemic unabated, an economy in meltdown, cities in chaos over police killings. All our supposed leader does is tweet.”
“Trump is also awol in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. More than 41 million Americans are jobless. In the coming weeks temporary eviction moratoriums are set to end in half of the states.”
U.S. House of Representatives: Redesign PPP to help genuine small businesses - Sign the Petition! chng.it/x2YjNSLb via @Change
"The program has done very little to help genuine small businesses and instead has benefited large companies who have used subsidiary entities to benefit disproportionately and unfairly." @SBAgov@stevenmnuchin1@SpeakerPelosi@AliVelshi
COVID Loan Tracker, a union of over 17,000 small business owners representing billions of dollars in Paycheck Protection Program applications, demands that the federal government increase the funding for PPP to $1tn within 48 hours.
Today we witness the death of democracy in America.
We are now ruled by oligarchs, just like Russia, and other third world charades, and the only value is self-interest. Without a social contract we can no longer be considered a country, and it’s all over but for the stay in hospice.
The very sad fact is that enough Americans no longer believe in Democracy except as a pretext for establishing the long-term rule by the minority. And here we are. You think the oligarchs are fleecing is now, you ain’t seen nothin yet.
“Democratic billionaires should pledge to stop spending money on their own quixotic runs and instead spend hundreds of millions of dollars to register voters and mount legal challenges against voter suppression measures.”
“The media should pledge to stop describing Republican obstruction and bad behavior as “partisan differences” or “partisan squabbling.” Let’s identify who is responsible for the deterioration in tone and denigration of democratic institutions.”
“His worst nightmare is to be humiliated, and if not now, history certainly will regard him as a pitiful, damaged man utterly unfit for the role he won through a series of improbable events (thanks to a hostile foreign power & undisciplined FBI director).” washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/…
“No letter, no tweet, no Fox News spin can repair the reputations of Trump enablers. The right-wing media that cheered them on will, like outlets that rooted for Jim Crow and demonized Freedom Riders, be shunned by decent, freedom-loving people who reaffirm objective reality.”
“Perhaps some small number of Senate Republicans will decide to separate themselves from the pack of Trump worshipers.”
