This would appear to be an FBI document showing the co-founder of Amnesty International ratting Black Panther leader Fred Hampton out to the FBI. 🤔 #FOIA…
Oh he's a winner....

"He also helped free Hungarian Cardinal József Mindszenty, American expatriate poet Ezra Pound, former Congo President Moise Tshombe and represented the Dalai Lama and Tibet."
My lord. This Kutner a bad guy.

Moïse Tshombe, whom Kutner helped "free", was the leader of the Katanga secessionist state set up by the Belgians and the UK in order to break up the Congo during the premiership of Patrice Lumumba.…

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today announced that the Committee will hold a public hearing with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
“As I said earlier, anyone who comes forward as Dr. Ford has done deserves to be heard. My staff has reached out to Dr. Ford to hear her account, and they held a follow-up call with Judge Kavanaugh this afternoon.

***Reminds me of #AbolishICE (I love you @ICEgov )***

Thread on the second Ezra Klein tweet in recent days that, I believe, frames an important problem badly, and dangerously so. (The first was on Trump's view of history.) This one manages to be bad in multiple ways. 1/
First, he elevates business (Silicon Valley) at the expense of politics (DC), invoking a false dichotomy. As @margaretomara and many other historians have shown, Silicon Valley would not exist were it not for the federal government. 2/
Second, by invoking "DC" and its inability to solve problems, Klein is sowing further doubt about the possibility of government to do good. Like the first misconception (that business and the state are totally separate entities), this diminishes the realm of politics. 3/

I dedicate this particular thread to Chuck Schumer, professional Wall Street and AIPAC puppet, and coward in the face of the worst Republican administration since George W. Bush. There is a good reason for that which I will get to momentarily.
There seems to be a pattern with Mr. Schumer in that he doesn't do anything to make sure the Democrats actually oppose Donald Trump like they should at every turn. Take fast tracking 15 lifetime appointment conservative judges so Democrats can go home.…
It could have something to do with how Donald Trump used to donate to Chuck Schumer all the time, along with Trump's family, even holding campaign fundraisers for him at Mar A Lago.…

OMG OMG OMG kiss vote fraud by the Democrats GOODBYE

All of a sudden the Democratic Party's huge #AbolishIce push is making a whole lot more sense, ain't it? 🤔

Hey you insane deranged Open Borders Progressives: yoo hoo!

Pay attention to what I'm about to say to you.

IOWA IS NOT CALIFORNIA. You *can't* count on Democrat/Progressives to get this guy off & minimize the fallout from this.
Progressives are right now struggling to defend the usual weekly bloodbath in Chicago by screaming about the NRA. It's not working any more.

And now this.

This was the LAST thing you needed.

You *chose* to go 'all in' in Open Borders Lunacy and Sanctuary Cities & undermining the immigration laws passed by our elected representatives.

Now you will reap what you've sown.

"Rivera has been living in the United States illegally for several years, police said, adding he was also employed in the area"

When in THE HELL are we going to FIX our unacceptably broken immigration system?

And fuck you, #AbolishICE
Also, who employed him, and why?

Thread: Take a look at the ICE news release section of their website and see how they spin things to fit their agenda.
This one is about an ICE officer that raped women while on the job then told them that the police won't help them because he was a federal officer. Headline says arrested on "federal civil rights charges" that "allege" he sexually assaulted 2 women.…
That's a strange way to say rape. Also uses "alleges" to cast doubt on the story. It even includes this important note "An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty."

Because of #CatchAndRelease a sexual predator was let go because of #KeepFamiliesTogether they could not separate him from the 13yr old he claimed as his daughter and because of #SanctuaryState CA he won’t be deported for raping her. This is the #OpenBorders legacy #BuildTheWall
Congratulations @TheDemocrats you enabled a thirteen year old girl to be brutally raped and abused but don’t worry, he’s safe in California and will be released into our communities because #AbolishIce right? You are all sick.
Cover your ears liberals, @ChuckGrassley AND @SenFeinstein have requested an investigation into abuse at detention centers that went IGNORED during the Obama admin😱Including detaining children in handcuffs where was everyone? The complaints started in 2014 #KeepFamiliesTogether

'Trump Derangement Syndrome has no natural stopping point...'

By @Sultanknish (full text, links) ⤵️…
One grandiose act of vandalism is soon exceeded by another.

The true resistance is in topping all previous acts of resistance.

#AbolishICE? Nah.

Abolish the presidency.

Thread on growing threats targeting immigrant and refugee survivors and how we can support as part of #FreeThemAll National Week of Action. #SurvivedAndPunished #AbolishICE

Immigration laws have always been rooted in the violent history of genocide and slavery. Fleeing violence (migration) is often deeemed "illegal" by immigration and criminal legal systems #SurvivedAndPunished #FreeThemAll #AbolishICE

I’m out in DC this afternoon. #AllOutDC #DefendDC
DC ain’t Charlottesville. I had a cop come up to me on the subway saying he liked my sign.
The tourists are broadly sympathetic, too, and the #MAGA hatters look distinctly uncomfortable.

I have a new piece @BostonReview on how the left needs to take global trade seriously, avoiding nationalism and protectionism and embracing global solutions that we can also implement at the national level. I'm going to tweet some points and solutions.…
First, the global trade system is disastrous for the world's workers, both in the U.S. and overseas. The reason is that capital mobility and international legal regimes and disconnected companies from any responsibility to anywhere or anything but shareholders.
Like the late 19th century, recent changes in capitalism have slapped us in the face and we don't really know how to respond. One of those changes is extreme capital mobility wrapped up in neoliberal trade agreements. How do we respond on the left?

I think what separates normal Trump opponents on the right from those who have become deluded, and what prevents those critics from backing moderate Dems, is the inability to recognize that the left has just as many crazy ass elements as the right does
It’s one thing to oppose Trump because he’s an insane, unconservative manchild. It’s another to pretend that his opponents on the left are sane and will save the republic in office. I’m not going to pretend Kamala Harris is great or #AbolishICE is normal or socialism is okay.
Now if you want to advocate for a particular Democrat as an acceptable alternative, fine. I’m with you. If you want to make a case for, say, a Biden who is a known element with more moderate and established governance, I’m all ears. But just pretending “the left” is better, no.

The Power of ‘Abolish ICE’… Democrats are shifting left on immigration, and it shows at the polls.
Some folks want to ameliorate ICE rather than abolish it. But I am in the latter camp because ICE has become an entity powered by hatred that functions without accountability to abuse immigrants of color. It is now a monument to institutionalized racism.…
The idea that the call to #AbolishICE will hurt Democrats is not supported by data. In fact, the opposite is true. Democrats should leverage this moment to redefine the immigration landscape so it is textured by ethics & vision worthy of our party's values…

The people running it & the President directing its policies are also bad.

But ICE was still bad when the President was better.

Its purpose is bad.

Its mandate is bad.

Its unaccountability is bad.

Okay, so any questions on that


Maybe *not* have a rogue, unaccountable, armed secret police force & threat of indefinite detention in a disgusting American gulag archipelago terrorizing immigrant communities in the name of enforcing civil immigration orders

Coordinated internal immigration enforcement is a very new idea in US history. But apart from that: we've only been doing it this way for 15 years. If you are doing anything to make this model inevitable, you're on the wrong side

Trump is obstructing justice in plain sight as he tweeted out to Sessions to shut down Mueller's probe into RU interference in the 2016 elex.

Mueller wants to askTrump about obstruction of justice.

2/This remarkable article details a Russian disinfo effort to blame the DNC hack on the DNC itself. The biggest promoter of this disinfo effort has been the President himself, who even returned to it in his presser w/Putin -…
3/Point - it's impossible to unpack Russian disinfo here in US fr what the President says everyday. They've been aligned, working together, playing off one another for yrs. Trump knows they are here, helping. Why he's taken steps to make it easier for these efforts to succeed.

@kevinroose FB has been unable to tie the accounts to Russia but company officials told Capitol Hill that Russia was possibly involved.

The company is not expected to name Russia in its announcement.
@kevinroose Facebook discovered coordinated activity around issues like a sequel to last year’s deadly “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Coordinated activity was also detected around #AbolishICE
