1. El @nytimes publica un artículo ANÓNIMO de un alto cargo del Gobierno de Trump. Es uno de los textos más alucinantes que he leído nunca. El autor dice que él y muchos de sus colegas se han conjurado para trabajar contra el presidente…

3. Estas frases resumen el artículo.

"Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. I would know. I am one of them".…

CSIRO CEO on @GBRFoundation Chair Dr Schubert:
“Better we help than he burns millions on overheads."

Good on CSIRO for wanting to stop this private foundation from wasting millions of public dollars.
Turnbull should have just given the money to the CSIRO in the first place.
Under @TurnbullMalcolm - CSIRO is now reduced to “working on (the GBRF Chair) in the background”

What a great idea. Let’s get our public sector agencies running around to lobby a small private foundation chairman in order to get public money for public science. #reefgate

"Trump and my nephew [Stephen Miller] both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human."
Powerful and moving #mustRead…
"The Glossers [Miller's maternal lineage] came to the U.S. just a few years [starting in 1903] before the fear and prejudice of the 'America First' nativists of the day closed U.S. borders to Jewish refugees."
"Had Wolf-Leib [Glosser] waited, his family would likely have been murdered by the Nazis along with all but seven of the 2,000 Jews who remained in Antopol."

Maria Butina charged with “Conspiracy to Act as an Agent of a Foreign Government”

Charges include exploiting “personal connections with U.S. persons having influence in American politics”

Maria Butina has OPENLY bragged about being involved in communications between the Trump team and Russia.

@timkmak wrote up this piece on her last year:

Maria Butina and her mentor, Alexander Torshin, served as nodal points of connection among the @NRA, the Kremlin, and the Trump administration.

@markfollman and Denise Clifton wrote this #MUSTREAD piece and brought ALL the receipts earlier this year:

This week, two pivotal pieces were published that everyone #mustread. @HenMazzig and @yumcoconutmilk's pieces, side by side, truly represent WMFA's raison d'être & demand for inclusivity. The divisive tendencies of certain social justice leaders deeply harms all of us. 1/n
In @yumcoconutmilk's powerful piece, "Memo To Shaun King From A Black Jew: Stop Dividing Our Communities," Nylah explains how @ShaunKing's construct of US vs THEM is detrimental to social justice. The path towards progress demands unity, not division. 2/n…
In @HenMazzig's equally powerful piece, "As a Queer Jew of Color, I Find Tamika Mallory’s Latest Comments Particularly Heartbreaking," Hen examines how @lsarsour & @TamikaDMallory strive towards division. These are not true social justice leaders. 3/n…"

Dear Black Americans,

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but the #BlackPantherMovie was not made with you in mind 😢

Everything about Disney’s “Blackest Production Ever” was strategic, including its target audience:

‘Continental Africans’
We all know that Disney is great when it comes to creating enchanting cinematography, so we can’t be too hard on ourselves for being easily spellbound by the rich blackness displayed through the lens of Ryan Coogler.
However, it’s been a full week now, so I’m hoping we can have an adult conversation about the true purpose, and strategic intent behind Disney’s $200 million global sensation, Black Panther.

You say you are “soul searching,” @jjz1600, but you need to be looking at WHO actually voted in Jones.

(Hint: It wasn’t the WWW.)
I appreciate your responding, and ITA about both/and.

Let me ask you something: How do you understand the turnout by Black Alabamians last night? What is your view on what prompted that level of engagement by Black voters?

(Since you don't know me and don't have context for reading my tone: this is a sincere query. And I am choosing to ask it publicly via quote tweet because this is an important dialogue for many of us on the left, NOT to put you on the spot.)

#Breaking BADABOUM puissance MILLE #Flynn l'ancien conseiller sécurité nationale de #Trump est inculpé pour parjure devant le FBI et mis en garde à vue par #Mueller. RT+1
2) Les informations sont encore parcellaires: #Flynn est incriminé pour des fausses déclarations répétées au #FBI quant à ses relations avec la #Russie, on est donc au coeur de l'enquête #Mueller sur #Trump et pas en périphérie...
3) #Flynn aurait menti délibérément et consciemment en particulier sur ses entretiens avec l'ambassadeur de #Russie Kislyak. On peut penser au RDV avec Kushner le 1er décembre 2016 et aux coups de fil sur les sanctions le 29 décembre 2016. #Trump

En cette fin de semaine, petit point de situation sur les enquêtes #Trump/#Russie dont les développements importants ET visibles- l'investigation #Mueller est vraiment cadenassée- sont passés inaperçus pour cause de scandales sexuels...#thread
2) La grosse info de la semaine sur #Trump/#Russie est tombée à mon sens hier soir. Le procureur #Mueller a assigné mi-octobre la campagne #Trump pour qu'elle fournisse les documents sur la #Russie d'1 douzaine de ses responsables.…
3) Cette assignation de l'enquête #Mueller est certes la 1ère injonction adressée à la campagne #Trump mais elle est surtout capitale par sa signification. #Trump et ses équipes ont toujours dit collaborer pleinement avec #Mueller: pourquoi assigne-t-il alors?

Selon la #CoréeduSud, la #CoréeduNord préparerait 1 nouvel essai de missile intercontinental...#Trump…
2)Ce nouvel essai serait très logique du point de vue de la #CoréeduNord.#Trump l'a menacé,donc le régime de Kim Jong Un veut le dissuader.
3)Ces démonstrations de la #CoréeduNord(bombe H,miniaturisation,missile intercontinental)ne préparent pas 1 attaque sur les USA/alliés MAIS
