Thread. Nazi--#Kavanaugh posters found yesterday on the campus of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY and all around the Hudson Valley region. Designed by The Daily Stormer (a reference to “Der Stürmer,” the Nazi tabloid), a webzine formerly known as Total Fascism.
2. Daily Stormer was launched in 2013 by Andrew Anglin, who embraced a Nazi ideology on the Daily Stormer.
3. Dailystormer.com was getting more than 10 million page views until it was shut down by GoDaddy and Google after remarks about the activist murdered in Charlottesville. It then briefly reappeared on a Russian domain.

☦️☦️☦️💥💥💥💣BOMB: How the Kremlin uses a network of the agents of influence to stack courts with #KavanaughConfirmation and stop the investigation into the global organized crime, money-laundering and political machinations of Putin and Trump. #Kavanaugh #KavanaughHearings
The article shows how conservative religious groups and networks like the Federalist Society, the National Prayer and Chabad were infiltrated and/or manipulated by the Kremlin to support critical decisions like Kavanaugh's nomination. 👇 medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
This thread+article show that, willingly or not, the Federalist Society, Fellowship Foundation, The National Breakfast Prayer, Russian Orthodox Church, and Chabad movement are being instrumental in lifting the economic sanctions against the Russian oligarchs & officials.

Thread re the FBI "investigation": Chris Wray was, like Kavanaugh, a Trump's nominee. He worked for a law company, representing Gazprom, Rosneft, Sberbank and Alfa Bank on issues related to sanctions. Moscow partner of King and Spalding is Wray’s partner & friend since childhood.
1.Wray had multiple connections that were covered in the process of his confirmation. medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
2. Wray silently reshapes the FBI: In January, McCabe said he felt pressure to leave the FBI. In August, Peter Strzok, who helped lead the bureau's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, was fired for texting anti-Trump messages.

3. Dr. Ford was assaulted by some man, somewhere, at some time. Now he is brining in his ten-year old daughter and crying and wants to pray for Dr. Ford. Now he is going to speak about himself: his career.
