Trump isnโ€™t a POTUS, heโ€™s a gangster

RUmob/TOC if youโ€™re listening, La Cosa Nostra has moved into La Casa Bianca

Pentagon & intel agencies hesitate reading Trump in on ops targeting Russia, b/c of concerns he will countermand or leak intel to foreign officials

Trump leaked highly sensitive TS intel to Kislyak & Lavrov in the Oval Office the day after he fired Comey.

Trump was not briefed in any detail about the steps to place โ€œimplantsโ€ โ€” software code that can be used for surveillance or attack โ€” inside the RU grid

U.S. Escalates Online intrusions into Russiaโ€™s Power Grid

5/15/17: The intel disclosed by Trump in a meeting with Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, was about an Islamic State plot.

How unhinged is left? 6K+ comments on my column noting @realDonaldTrump/@VP/@SecPompeo agreement with Mexico. The prospect of a @POTUS win unnerves #TheResistance, so they seize on a headline that doesnโ€™t reflect the actual story โ€”which notes significant new commitments.
Throw in the standard โ€œHe created a crisis and then solved itโ€ and presto, another โ€œnarrativeโ€ for the left to amuse themselves with. If it wasnโ€™t a major shift from Mexico, there wonโ€™t be changes. But if the crisis abates it will be b/c of @realDonaldTrump tariff threat.
#TheResistance has talked itself into cheering the prospect of an ongoing border crisis. This commits the Ds to a radical position on the border similar to the radical position on health care. The party has been driven over the edge by its extreme online fringe (+ Mueller fiasco)

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"
#ClimateChangeIsReal #ThursdayThoughts
"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

1- Btw, if you haven't connected these dots, here is one game Mueller was playing:

-issue report to Barr w/o Grand Jury material redacted (despite request to do)
-issue convenient "summaries" that are already scrubbed
-assume Barr will send out summaries, no other choice

2- Thus the Mueller team, not Barr, sets the immediate narrative. Great plan, except Barr was onto them.

So Barr wrote is own "bottom line" summary, aborting their plan. Hence why Mueller's staff (Weissmann) whined, prompting send + leak of "snitty" Mueller letter (cont).
3- So Barr "picked up the phone" & called Mueller, thus taking the high road. But Barr was wily enough to have other people on that phone call, so Mueller couldn't play games with what they talked about (cont).

1) For those who have ears to hear... LISTEN!

Everything youโ€™re about to hear from the Democrats like @SpeakerPelosi , @RepJerryNadler @RepAdamSchiff
(Whose been oddly silent lately)
Thatโ€™s right... I mean EVERYTHING theyโ€™re going to say.
The plan...
2) The plan is simple.
Did you notice?
Mueller never mentioned an actual โ€œcrimeโ€ committed by @realDonaldTrump.
Just that he couldnโ€™t charge him with one because heโ€™s the president.
NADLER... his statement
โ€œNo one is above the law, not even the president!โ€
3) The statements made by both had 2 purposes.

1) Bloody meat for the self righteous ILL INFORMED liberals of #TheResistance

2) To strike fear into those of us in the #MAGA movement.

Sadly yes... some of us are weak and easily rattled so this is for you!
FEAR NOT ... ๐Ÿ‘‡

Members in the world. I got out actively pursuing #Nazism about two years ago. I began training #DonaldTrump in 1997. I had known him for a while but he expressed interest in the #Nazi Movement to me in 1997.
2) He asked me to train him. I accepted. We started out slowly, I led him
through subliminal #mindcontrol techniques at first. I told him that repeating things over& over especially short phrases- #brainwashes people to do your will. He learned how to repeat things over and over
3)in a way that would control the masses. From mind control, we began
working on โ€œimportanceโ€ of being white. As a trainer, I fed him lines about dangers of minorities. I told him that the black and Mexican communities were dangerous and must be stopped - even through #genocide.

This is the thickness of the #EarthsAtmosphere from pictures I took during one of #NASAโ€™s Live Feeds from the #ISS!Trump wants to change how #Climate data is shown to Americans so that releasing CO2 looks less dangerous then it actually is #ClimateChange #ClimateAction is needed!
Hereโ€™s one reality, we should be spending more money to stay on Earth than planning to leave to go to Mars because Earthโ€™s Atmosphere is no longer viable to sustain life. Research is important but Mars Doesnโ€™t Have an Atmosphere. Millions of people canโ€™t live there in 125 yearsโ€ผ๏ธ

"To all the people who let this election break up families & friends-I think the last civil conversations we had occurred just days before November 8, 2016. You were supremely confident Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election; And [then] you lost your freaking minds!"
"I knew you would take the loss hard-& personally-since all of you were super jacked-up to elect the first woman president. I did not imagine you would become totally deranged, attacking anyone who voted for Trump as a racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic Nazi-sympathizer."

0. Redoing earlier thread as after discussion with @AngryBlackLady, @memnosoncos, and others Iโ€™ve agreed that while the original hashtag speaks to earlier self-definition, itโ€™s better to use #ExForcedBirth as a clear rejection of the false โ€œpro-lifeโ€ framing.

1. When you grow up evangelical, you have the message that โ€œabortion is murderโ€ and โ€œa literal holocaustโ€ pounded into your head from early childhood. For many in the #Exvangelical community, men and women, these extremist lies can be very hard to shake.

#ExForcedBirth #Resist
2. Even the brilliant @rachelheldevans, who recently died far too young, could only bring herself to argue against single-issue voting on abortion and that it was hardly pro-life to support so many inhumane policies while being anti-choiceโ€ฆ

(Thread) EVERYONE should read this book.

Vladimir Bukovsky is a former Soviet Dissident who spent 10 years in a Gulag. He moved to England after fleeing the Soviet Union and became one of the main leaders in the anti-Soviet Movement.โ€ฆ
2. He was given access to the KGB Archives when the wall fell, and he went in with a scanner and copied a LOT of files.

Bukovsky's main point is that the "West" failed when they didn't hold trials like we did with the Nazis. It let the Powers stay in power.
3. Disclaimer: Bukovsky is a Conservative, and this book mostly targets the Soviet attempts to influence the left.

Everyone has activities that we engage in when weโ€™re stressed out

Therapists talk about a toolbox. Itโ€™s a compartment inside your brain where you can keep these activities or โ€œtoolsโ€.
Tools can be positive or negative. They can work or backfire.

Knowing what tools are and what you can do to lessen the stress of The Trump era makes #TheResistance stronger, more effective and powerful.
Positive tools are:
- cooking
- reading,
- protesting
-writing MOC
- gardening
- exercising
- blast music
- feed a homeless person
- random act of kindness
- self talk

1. #TeacherAppreciationWeek is complicated for me. Not in the abstract--U.S. teachers are woefully undervalued--but on a personal level as an alum of right-wing evangelical Christian schools.

I started the hashtag #ExposeChristianSchools b/c these schools have major issues.
2. In parts of America public schools often fail to be this, but schools should be places where kids learn to be good citizens of a democracy, a prerequisite for which is acceptance of pluralism. Christian schools explicitly teach rejection of pluralism:โ€ฆ
3. I went to Christian schools from 1st through half of sixth grade, then 7th through 12th. Mine were of the more "rigorous" kind. They teach creationism but still want high SAT scores and high college placement rates; they embrace Billy Graham rather than find him "too liberal."

Ya know, I volunteered for @BarackObama

He inspired me. He gave me hope.

Then he was elected. And I let him down.

I did NOTHING while the GOP obstructed everything he tried to accomplish.

I did NOTHING about Merrick Garland. No phone calls. No protests. Nothing.
Then Trump happened. And I woke.

I organized Rally's and marches.

I called my reps daily.

I donated.

I volunteered.

I organized.

And we flipped the House.

I was part of something bigger.

I was part of #TheResistance
And now we have the House.

And we are doing the exact same thing.

We are letting @TheDemocrats down.

Instead of saying "we have your back", we are infighting.

Instead of saying " what can we do to help" we are attacking our own.

Seth's @SethAbramson lengthy thread on his take away from Barr's planned release of the redacted #Mueller report, the event's leading up to it, with links to related items. Definitely worth your time to read carefully. #GeeksResist #TheResistance #HeroesResist #VeteransResist
UPDATE 1: My friend Bryan @ "Why Now?' posted a blog with links to various related items of interest. Please check them out also.โ€ฆ
UPDATE 2: Digby @ Hullabaloo posted an article w/ a possible reason Mueller let Don Jr. off the hook so easily! Explanation by Election Law expert Rick Hasen. It was a bad decision by Mueller IMO.

We all know #ThisIsNotNormal. ๐Ÿ’ฏ
Some folks are saying it may never be normal again. ๐Ÿ™„

But I'm gonna let you all in on a secret.
Are you ready?

Our "normal" was hot garbage.
No, really.
Hot. Frelling. Garbage.

Let's review, shall we?

<thread> It's going to be too easy for things to start feeling normalโ€”especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by his actions. So keep reminding yourself: this is not normal. Write it on a Post-It Note & stick it on your refrigerator, hire a skywriter once a month, tattoo it on your ass. Because a klan-backed misogynist internet troll is going to be delivering the sotu. And that's fucked up. - John Oliver
"Normal" gave us a Republican party that flatly refused to work with President Obama. On anything. At all. Ever.

Think I'm exaggerating?
Two words: #MerrickGarland.

McConnell sat on a vacancy in the highest court of the land for a year.

And it was so "normal" we did nothing. Gorsuch arrives at a SCOTUS seat, in which President Obama's nominee is bound & gagged, saying,
"Normal" gave us 60+ votes to repeal the #AffordableCareAct. Heck, it gave us the ACA passing with zero GOP votes.

That's not hyperbole, folks.
The 1st House vote, ONE Republican.
The Senate vote, ZERO Republicans.
The final House vote, ZERO Republicans.โ€ฆ Roadrunner as Obamacare (Affordabilis Care Actus) outmaneuvers a pack of Coyotes as Republicans (Grandium Old Party).

1. Try as I might I canโ€™t move on from my ABC #campaigntrail experience. Iโ€™m devastated by the ABCโ€™s betrayal of her values. The only way to regain my balance is to tell my truth. I expect not to ever again appear on the ABC but maybe I might help the ABC rediscover its mission.
2. The #campaigntrail producer asked me to appear & I agreed. The first I knew Alan Jones was a guest was when the host tweeted the lineup. I assumed that heโ€™d been told to & agreed to be fact based, as he had been on the #QandAโ€™s Iโ€™d seen. I was concerned, but up for it.
3. I was told One Nation would lead the discussion. I assumed, as per ABC guidelines, that Jones or the host would disclose up front that he was a One Nation donor. Didnโ€™t happen.

Jones ran ON talking points in total denial of the revelations of the doco...
