0. Redoing earlier thread as after discussion with @AngryBlackLady, @memnosoncos, and others I’ve agreed that while the original hashtag speaks to earlier self-definition, it’s better to use #ExForcedBirth as a clear rejection of the false “pro-life” framing.

#Exvangelical
1. When you grow up evangelical, you have the message that “abortion is murder” and “a literal holocaust” 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-choice

To my fellow women on Twitter, please be careful men who approach you in a romantic manner. Many are #Incels in disguise, especially in #TheResistance. I had the unfortunate experience of meeting one, myself, who was posing as a Resistance member. He made my life hell. Read on...
What is an incel? Traditionally, it is a man who is involuntarily celibate, a misogynist who blames women for their issues. They are threatened especially by strong intelligent women who are social justice warriors. They are dangerous and can be deadly.
Many are part of the alt-right & have infiltrated social media using alts disguising themselves as liberals to target women like you and I.

(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.

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 we’re stressed out

Therapists talk about a toolbox. It’s a compartment inside your brain where you can keep these activities or “tools”.
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:

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.

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. 💯
Some folks are saying it may never be normal again. 🙄

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 normal—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.

About that pesky chip (thread) I think we a lot of our followers understand the danger we are in ans what’s going on but some don’t. I thought a picture thread would lead to better understandable ment. These are pix of Hepzi from the past 15 years (couldn’t find younger pix)
Borrowed from her FB page: Facebook.com/loveified ) - you should go to her page and click “like” and reach out to her there In sure that would encourage her since she’s too sick to be on twitter right now with the harassment. Anyhow...
Most of this weakness is from the chip she has but other parts are because she’s a #whistleblower, I relate to because I used to be in the cabal and I got out - We were working on this testing on Elon musk & Trump’s satellites and drones, which make the chip even worse. Remember

1. Try as I might I can’t move on from my ABC #campaigntrail experience. I’m devastated by the ABC’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 he’d been told to & agreed to be fact based, as he had been on the #QandA’s I’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. Didn’t happen.

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

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake:

Why the post-Mueller political alignment is almost unfathomably favorable for Democrats. (Thread)
Those with dreams of Trump being clapped in irons and frog marched from the Oval Office missed the essential point that thins would be a longer game, played out in several stages.

Stage one was to generate a Special Counsel investigation.
The goal of stage one was to politically hobble Trump out of the gate.

It would indict a number of minor players, generate a great deal of damning evidence, and dominate the news cycle.

Ok, message to #TheResistance, Monday morning quarterbacks and millennials. Assume everything you "hope" will happen won't and plan accordingly. Allow me to list; assume that
1. #Mueller will not testify in front of Congress and if he does then he will not confirm anything
Assume:

2. If #Mueller does speak he will say he meant for AG Barr to determine the obstruction conclusion
3. AG Barr will not release the #MuellerReport
4. Dem leadership will let this slide
5. Trump will not be impeached
6. Trump will be elected in 2020

AND ACT ACCORDINGLY
Assume:
8. Enough people will assume that Trump did not kill the ACA.
9. The rust belt will not revolt at the obvious lack of jobs.
10. Very few people watch cable TV
11. Those who have not decided or might flip their vote in 2020 don't want you calling them racist

A reminder:

It is very easy to log onto twitter and get caught in a web of absurdities, How can they not understand this? Oh look, another bot leaving me an insult about my haircut. Wait, how can Mueller’s investigation be over if the Mystery company just lost SCOTUS appeal?
I remind myself to step back once and a while and find an article with reading - I read the whole thing from start to finish, and I share it to remind others that there is another way to look at these things...
“No human being on Earth has done more to keep the Trump-Russia narrative in the news than Donald Trump” this should be the response to every pundit who says, “fake news media and Democrats pushed this conspiracy.” thenation.com/article/russia…

Let's play a game, shall we?

No, I am not attempting to make light of today's news.
But it feels like we're already screwed, so let me throw some wild theories out there.
Today was a 'test' for William Barr.
A test given by Robert Mueller.
For weeks, people have been speculating about whether Barr's loyalty is to Trump or to the American people. I have followed people who say he wrote his memo to get the job specifically as a ruse to get into position to protect Mueller. He was definitely a white hat. Trust him.

#MuellerReport in so let's look back
1-Why did Putin need a "Trump?"
US & EU Sanctions are crippling Russian economy
Sanctions have stopped Investments
Very low global prices for its' OIL
Putin's personal finances are down

In 1987, why did a formerly a-political Trump suddenly start commenting on politics?
Trump's financial history was littered with connections to Mafia & illegal payoffs, Tax fraud & failing to pay his contractors & by 1991 he filed for the 1/ 5 bankruptcies
nymag.com/intelligencer/…
In 1995, Trump declares a $916M loss on his income tax returns & not only is he cash poor but NO US Banks will lend him a penny
Putin steps in & with Russian banks & Deutsche bank-all of a sudden he's paying CASH for everything
Why is Putin so helpful?
