Racist Society

No one is allowed to point to the election of Obama as proof that white society has moved past racism. The presence of Boris Johnson & Trump disproves everything y’all claim. And stop blaming leftists for white ppl being racist. Everyone is always at fault for the terrible outcomes of elections & the downfall of […]

WHAT WILL YOU DO to get out the vote?

WHAT WILL YOU DO to get out the vote? Will you carry voter registration cards and sign people up? Are you doing postcards? Have you picked a campaign for donations/volunteering? Tell me your plan to TURN 2020 BLUE, maybe it will inspire others to get involved. Fo example, if you currently work with a group […]

GOP is installing 45 as *dictator* right now

Folks are still in *massive* denial thinking 2020 US election is simply a matter of which Democraric candidate is most “electable”. Again; GOP is installing 45 as *dictator* right now. Why do y’all assume: 1) we’ll have an election 2) it will be fair 3) Biden won’t face same attack as Hillary faced 4) Trump […]

All I did was explain the strategy

Thread: All I did was explain the strategy. The Democrats took control of the House, learned that Mueller didn’t follow the money, and launched a legal battle to get Trump’s financials. Few understood what the Dems were doing and insisted on immediate impeachment. My goal since May has been to pump the brakes on impeachment […]

What did you discuss with Lev Parnas?

Martha: What did you discuss with Lev Parnas? Nunes: Well, I don’t even know because I never met Parnas… Martha: So you never had any phone conversation with him. Nunes: We have not been able to confirm that yet Martha: You don’t think you would remember? https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1202747106860994560/pu/vid/640×360/lzfharmlCbFpEMvp.mp4 “Rudy Giuliani knows a lot of members of […]

Sensenbrenner one-upping Lofgren on impeachments.

Starting a new thread. Sensenbrenner one-upping Lofgren on impeachments. He does not look well. Sensenbrenner disagrees with Gerald Ford on basis for impeachment, whatever a majority of the House could agree on. Sensenbrenner Claims inquiry arose out of Trump saying “do me a favor.” Um. No. It came out of the context of that. Sensenbrenner […]

Hong Kong Protest

The Tsimshatsui to Hung Hom protest march — the largest of three marches on Sunday — has begun at 3pm, with thousands massing at the harbourfront amid a moderately heavy police presence. The area borders the previously-besieged PolyU. Photo: Stand News screenshot. #hongkong The theme of the Tsimshatsui march is to call on Hongkongers not […]

The march from Tsim Sha Tsui to Coliseum begins

The march from Tsim Sha Tsui to Coliseum begins. Theme of this protest is 毋忘初心, despite pro-democracy candidates winning majority of district council seats, #HongKong people continue to take to the streets in huge number as their demands remain unmet. https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1201037801917075456/pu/vid/640×360/v3SWuPj3T3W0smYe.mp4 A stark contrast in atmosphere outside the newly reopened Museum of Art, where people […]

Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s president

This whole thing with this Ukraine phone call boils down to pretty simple stuff. And when all is told and the truth comes out completely this is how I think it played out. Alexander Vindman was listening in on the call between Trump & Zelensky. He hears where Trump is wanting the investigation into the […]

The timing of these anti Louise Mensch stories stink

The timing of these anti – @KamalaHarris stories stink. Senator Harris easily won the last Democratic debate. Her rival Butteig has crashed and burned with African-American voters in a performance that can only be described as abominable. Butteig’s (white) campaign press people and staffers have responded to black criticism by calling it inauthentic, while his […]

Talk about a bubble of privilege and denial!; Hong Kong

Imagine living in Hong Kong for 28 years and still being so blinkered and racist that you think the protestors are bought and paid for by America rather than having actual reasons to be angry, and having actual goals. Talk about a bubble of privilege and denial. CGTN’s @thepointwithlx interviewed a British who has lived […]

China: if these violent protests happened elsewhere police would shoot them all

China: if these violent protests happened elsewhere police would shoot them all HK: if these peaceful mass protests and election results happened elsewhere the leaders would step down China: HK: China: HK: China: HK: China: HK: China: HK: China: *sends more tear gas* The Economist: “In a true democracy a vote in which opposition candidates […]

This is an incomplete list of people I recommend you follow for info on the Hong Kong protests.

This is an incomplete list of people I recommend you follow for info on the Hong Kong protests. Work in progress thread that will expand over time. Priority is given to: Frontline first-hand witnesses Hongkonger voices Active and prolific tweeters is an easy choice. Rachel Cheung is an incredibly brave and dedicated frontline Hong Kong […]

Indian Civil Rights Act

Indian Civil Rights Act. A thread…. B/c I have a lot of new followers, I need to address an important issue. Did you know that Native defendants in tribal courts do not have the protection of the Bill of Rights? Congress has created separate, and unequal, protections in “ICRA” ICRA has some parallel protections to […]

Productivity and Time management

I had what I think was a pretty profound revelation the other day pertaining to “productivity” and “time management”, and in particular how we set ourselves up for success when there are multiple things we care about that require some degree of dedication/time investment. Thread: OK, so let me contextualize the point I want to […]

Missed the impeachment hearings over the last 2 weeks?

Missed the impeachment hearings over the last 2 weeks? Well, I watched almost every word (doing commentary for @NBCNews & @MSNBC ) so you didn’t have to. My quick takeaways in one thread. Most people had never heard of these witnesses before. I knew most of them: Ambs Taylor, Volker, Yovanovitch, Lt. Col. Vindman, David […]

Trump-Giuliani Ukraine; “It’s just not credible to me,”

Schiff: “The efforts to secure the investigations would continue for several more days, but appear to have abruptly ended soon after three Committees of Congress announced an investigation into the Trump-Giuliani Ukraine scheme. Only then, would the aid be released.” Nunes kicks off the second part of today’s proceedings by calling it ”act two of […]

When Americans are left to die b/c they can’t afford things like insulin, who or what is that in service to?

When Americans are left to die b/c they can’t afford things like insulin, who or what is that in service to? I need every politician arguing against universal care to answer that. Why are people denied healthcare here & not in other developed nations? How is allowing people to die b/c they can’t afford overpriced […]

Ukrainians considered Giuliani “an important conduit” to Trump.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, someone calling the President from a mobile phone at a restaurant, and then having a conversation of this level of candor, colorful language. There’s just so much about the call that was so remarkable,” Holmes said https://t.co/fdopkzi8ol “I think the Ukrainians gradually came to understand that they were being […]

The demonstrations in Iran are getting increasingly violent

Iran Protests: The demonstrations in Iran are getting increasingly violent, and there are no signs of deescalation. Activist Masih Alinejad is receiving countless videos of the protests in Iran, and she gives us a better sense of what is happening on the ground. https://video.twimg.com/amplify_video/1196181146783997952/vid/640×360/24rv_2RXzmh3TBMB.mp4

Mayor Bill de Blasio: “Stop and Frisk was discredited years and years ago…

Mayor Bill de Blasio: “Stop and Frisk was discredited years and years ago… There were many of us saying this was broken, it wasn’t working, it was discriminatory, it was harming families, it was holding us back — Michael Bloomberg wouldn’t listen.” https://video.twimg.com/amplify_video/1196256837567483904/vid/640×360/qFT0P_m7-dmOK8jG.mp4
