One of the most important parts of this article right here:
"Over the past decade his family had moved around the country a half-dozen times as he looked for steady work, bouncing between construction and restaurant jobs while sometimes living on food stamps...
During the economic crash of 2008, his wife had taken a job at Wendy’s to help pay down their credit-card debt"
If you don’t know what the hell im talking about, consider yourself lucky. If you do, the next time you play that song for your kids, imagine laying it over a montage of all the photographs that we’ve been subjected to of him being bizzy on the phone.
And that is the only proper context with which to view a pic of him talking on the phone.
-record all of your conversations
-note who your friends, family, colleagues and other important people are
-note all the keywords used in your conversations
-note how many times you use certain keywords in your conversations
-note who and what you're talking about, and when
-assess your emotional state
-track everywhere you go, even when you're not using your phone
-catalogue what your face looks like, and what your friends' and family's faces look like
-assess your health and financial situation based on your conversations and who you call
Horse shoe isn't something we're making up. It's real, and it looks like Whitaker is right in the middle of it, not mention other mountains of sh*t.
That company of his that's currently under criminal investigation? He was working right alongside the founder of Occupy Dems, Omar Rivero. You know Occupy Dems, right? The group believed to have built support for Bernie Sanders?
I think Trump/McGahn’s interest in Whitaker in July 2017 had way less to do with TV appearances than his mob ties, Manafort’s home being raided, and George Papadopoulos being arrested.
Also, he was appointed on September 22, 2017. One week after Junior ditched Secret Service to roam around Canada, and a few days before some other interesting things happened. google.com/amp/s/m.huffpo…
ALL of this, and as a former public servant I can assure you that documentation is everything. It's how you get shit done in government and public institutions. And for it to stop you'd have to fire every single public employee.
PS: most of the people Trump brought in have no f*cking clue about paperwork and its power. They were laughing and scoffing and grifting while public servants around them quietly documented EVERYTHING.
You have to realize that many many public servants do what they do because it gives them a sense of purpose. They love their country. They believe in what they're doing. And when assh*les come in and start f*cking around with that, they don't take it lying down.
I’m not a lawyer, but I’m wondering if Trump just painted himself into a corner with the Sessions move. Remember, the AG office answers to the American people and the law of the land. This is the law re vacancies: law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/28…
Rosenstein would not adhere to any order that’s unlawful. Which—if I’m understanding the law correctly— could include standing down and along with that ceding oversight of the SC.
And then here’s the rub: Trump can’t/won’t publicly confront this fact or the entire house of cards collapses. All he can do is SPIN and create a spectacle to distract us. That’s my theory, anyway. (Again, not a lawyer)
Please be aware that tweeting headlines like these, without first saying that things are actually now up and running (and they are, which you find out at the END of the article) can dissuade people from coming at all. thehill.com/homenews/campa…
I’ve seen several of these today where it’s presented as though the problem hasn’t been solved when it most definitely has. Priority #1 today needs to be VOTING.
In fact, if the article states the problem has been solved, I’d personally just bookmark it for later and not share for the moment so as to not feed ANY negativity towards voting. Yes, it’s infuriating, but we gotta keep going.
Still think they weren’t using our DMs to target us? And PS: FB left the door open for this. Knowingly. This metadata floating around out there dilutes FB’s money-making capabilities. Why would they do something that goes directly against their financial interest?
After basically giving their secret sauce to anyone with an internet connection and an interest - rendering their marketing tools way, way less effective - how can they make sure marketers keep paying them allz the moneyz? engadget.com/2016/09/23/fac…
Have you listened to @maddow 's new podcast, Bag Man, yet? You should. You really, really should. It will give you hope, and a touchstone for when you think nothing's happening, or that what we're facing is impossible. She's just so f*cking brilliant.
It is SO good. She interviews the prosecutors who worked on Spiro Agnew's corruption case (QUIETLY, BEHIND THE SCENES, WITHOUT BEING F*CKING LOUDMOUTHS ABOUT IT, B/C THAT'S WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE A PROFESSIONAL *HINT HINT*).
And even now, decades later, they are *literally CRYING* about what was happening and how things went down. Because they're f*cking patriots who knew exactly what was at stake.
"The conspirators’ alleged activities did not exclusively adopt one ideological view; they wrote on topics from varied and sometimes opposing perspectives." (cont'd)
"Members of the conspiracy were directed, among other things, to create 'political intensity through supporting radical groups' and to 'aggravate the conflict between minorities and the rest of the population.'"
