1/ THREAD (Click on "Show this thread") Here is a revised Ultimate Presidential Candidates List for 10/6/18. Major changes at Tier One. Kamala Harris moves into first, followed by Cory Booker as a running mate. Joe Biden moves from first to third followed by Michael Avenatti.
2/ Bernie Sanders remains first on Tier Two, but is considered weak as a primary contender. Eric Swalwell stays at second while Deval Patrick and Adam Schiff switch places based on Schiff's high profile stance against Kavanaugh (i.e., Schiff moves up on spot).

Don’t make the mistake thinking they won’t try

It’s the only way they’ll win...

That means they’ll definitely try.

Our Democracy May literally depend on me.

Do you remember who you were & how you spent your time before Trump?

I slept soundly at night knowing our country was in the hands of an intelligent, honorable, capable President. I never worried about what our President would say or do in the face of national tragedy or danger
It wasn’t always puppies and rainbows but I never worried about our relationship with our allies or our position in NATO or our commitment to clean energy and acceptance of climate change.
I never went to bed at night worried about what our President might tweet or do that would endanger national security or align the United States with hostile and dangerous foreign powers.

1) #SerenaWilliams is a national embarrassment

Didn't cheat? Coach admitted cheating.
Broke a racquet
Told umpire "I have a daughter"
Verbally abused umpire, called him a thief
"Men do a lot worse, b/c I'm a woman you take a game from me?"

#UsOpenFinal #USOpen2018 #NaomiOsaka
2) Then she cried on court, playing the victim.

The crowd was berating the umpire from the stands. The commentators were biased. Serena stole all the happiness from the winner Naomi Osaka.

America looks terrible over this.

#UsOpenFinal #USOpen2018 #NaomiOsaka #SerenaWilliams
3) This is how #NewYorkCity fans behave on a world stage?


They get this way when they lose, right Hillary? All #BlueWave2018 voters. Bitter, sore losers.

Alright, let's break down this NYT Op Ed.

I'm not going to Speculate who wrote it

I do not think #Anonymous is a Hero

The 25th Amendment will not be Invoked against this *POTUS, it's a Distraction

First of all, this Op-Ed baits it's Audience by Stating they are part of "the Resistance" when #Anonymous is nothing of the Sort.

They are COMPLICIT. Grifting on a Failing *Adminstration in Order to have Power over the Policies being set at the White House.
#Anonymous admits this fact later after baiting us using "the Resistance" Title, all while Praising this *Admin's Policies

Most in the Cabinet know *45 is Unhinged & Dangerous, but they're willing to "Thwart" him long enough to get their "MAGA" Agenda Done

How Heroic! 🙄

Tweet from June 2017. The police and fire rescue are at the same house (my next door neighbor) for another suspected overdose. She is alive and seems to be ok now. We have GOT to do something about this problem. These people are suffering from a serious addiction. 1)
I do NOT have the answer. But I do know that we need better health care and mental health options for these people. 2)
It seems @realDonaldTrump wants to have a fight about weed when what we really need to address are the substances that are actually killing our folks in massive numbers. 3)

While we are all working to importantly save this country by electing Democrats to #FlipTheHouse and #FlipTheSenate in November-

Electing Democratic state governors is extremely important, too. They can be an important line of defense at the state level. 1/6

✅Help #SaveTheACA
✅Help save and expand #Medicare
✅Protect #NetNeutrality
✅Protect the environment and deal with #climatechange
✅Help end #Gerrymandering and voter suppression.
✅Enact #GunSense legislation.
✅Protect abortion rights.
And more. 2/6
Here are governors' seats we need to hold or are competitive to flip. Please follow, donate, add them to your RT lists, & if you are local, get involved with their campaigns on the ground. Candidates all through primary elections.

⚡️In 2014, 75% of Floridians voted OVERWHELMINGLY to pass Amendment 1, AKA the FL Water & Land Conservation Initiative, a state constitutional amendment to allot a projected $21 billion over the 20 years of the measure to buy & preserve land. They approved this:
▶️75% of the voters is 4.2 million people.
▶️When 75% of #Florida voters voted to approve Amendment 1 to the Florida Constitution, they approved "the largest land conservation measure ever approved in a single state."
ℹ️The exact amount of money is “projected” because—according to the amendment that was passed—it was to come from 33% of Florida’s existing excise tax. An Excise tax is a “documentary stamp tax” paid when real estate is sold, typically 70 cents per $100 paid for the property.

This President being an "unindicted co-conspiritor" is so "Catch 22" it hurts. Here's why (thread)
1/ @MichaelCohen212's testimony and a growing mountain of evidence would surely be enough to bring an indictment for anyone BUT a sitting President.
2/ A freaking "Memorandum Opinion" for the Attorney General delivered in 2000 provides the most recent guidance on "A sitting President's amenability to indictment or criminal prosecution."…

The gift of #TruthIsTruth

🧐Enquiring Minds Want to Know!!!

🧷National Enquirer's Safe Held Damaging Trump Stories…
🧐I never really thought about this before, but the celebrities who are often humiliated (or an attempt at least) are usually liberal Democrats who speak out about politics.

🖼️Even this cover here: Katie Holmes, Rosie O'Donnell, Oprah Winfrey...
💥Cher gets killed by the National Enquirer...Barbra Streisand...George Clooney, Meg Ryan, Alec Baldwin!

🧐Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Ellen DeGenerous, Angelina Jolie, Melanie Griffith, etc.

👉Just naming a few...all Democrats, most liberal and outspoken. No pictures needed.

💥We have an unindicted co-conspirator in the White House.

📈📉The stock market, just about the only argument Trump🍊 has left, is irrelevant.

🐘Republicans have chosen just about everything over doing the right thing. The truth emerges. It's Money.

🦵🏽Purge the CORRUPTION!



🙄Oh yeah, and "FLIPPING" should not be illegal.

While you are celebrating the convictions of Manafort and Cohen, remember that the only opportunity for impeachment will come if we deliver a flip both the US Senate and US House of Representatives!

The only way to make that happen is to #GetOutTheVote!

Studies show people are more likely to vote if they make a pledge to vote. So @inspiredjen and @AoCChecklist invite you to MAKE A PLEDGE TO VOTE!

"In a representative democracy, your vote is your voice. This November, Americans will use their vote to speak up not just ....
...candidates and policies, but for their values and vision for our country.
In the current climate, it's not enough to fill out your ballot. Make a pledge to be prepared and informed when you vote this November....
