Rick: Grassley basically said women don't want to work.
Sarah Kendzior: All women do is work. Women have been doing the bulk of the work of protesting, documenting the atrocities of the this administration.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Those in power don't care. Our elected representatives don't care about our opinions, about their constituents, about being voted out of office. That tells me they plan to rig election, disqualify votes after the fact.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: They want a disempowered, serf-like class struggling for survival. It's the Republican dream. They've designed a transnational economy that benefits the wealthiest.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Most people don't have stocks except maybe a 401(k). The average person doesn't think of the economy in terms of stock market b/c they don't live like that.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Most people under 40 haven't experienced regular raises, good wages, benefits, extra money to invest in stock market.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Most of us can't live like Kavanaugh, buying $200,000 worth of baseball cards with no one investigating how they were paid off. <Muttering "I need to meet new friends.">
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: You hear stories of people investing in weapons to use once Hillary "stole" the election--tanks, automatic weapons. I think most people aren't really looking forward to street fights but others enjoy the chaos.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: It's extremely important not to mainstream these outlier opinions. I can see Fox News popularizing them.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Rick: I never thought there was a way to stop Kavanaugh but to me, it was about fighting back & getting people enraged, active for Nov.
Sarah Kendzior: I think that's the best strategy against a legitimate Republican win or tampering.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: I feel a combination of rage & numbness that my children will have to grow up with that rage-filled, beer-loving person on the Supreme Court.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: There's something shitty about watching your worst nightmares coming true. Who's the alarmist now? I've been saying these things for two years & others are just now beginning to grasp it.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: I said in Nov 2016 that we had two months to investigate Russian interference, to strengthen our institutions to be ready for Trump & his onslaught. People said we were hysterical (if we were women) or alarmist (males).
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: There's no one less deserving of benefit of doubt than Trump, yet he gets it again & again. The same will happen w/ Kavanaugh, I fear. "Oh, he was having a bad day." Then we'll wake up when he makes bad decisions, then sleep again.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation
Sarah Kendzior: I'm hoping that with the election we'll have a new wave of candidates voted in.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior:
It's become abundantly clear that this is a very long term plan of the Republicans; Hillary will be vindicated for calling it.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: I worry there'll be a constitutional convention that will bring to an end American self-rule. People like me don't generally fare well in such times.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Trust needs to be earned. People need to be held to the utmost scrutiny.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Trump will say or do anything, like proclaim his love for Kim Jong-un.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: We don't have a large platform like a Fox News to blast our opinions out there.
Rick: Once again, I'd argue that the left has done a terrible job of building that platform.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Mueller should have his findings out before Kavanaugh gets voted onto Supreme Court--Kavanaugh is Trump's lackey and would stop Mueller.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: All checks and balances are gone in our gov't. It's up to us, the people, to provide checks and balances. If they want democracy to succeed, they need to pay attn to us, do what we've elected them to do.

Scott Dworkin: It's almost a certainty that Mueller will try Manafort for the ten charges that ended in a hung jury in the previous trial.
@funder @TheDemCoalition #DworkinReport
Scott Dworkin: Manafort can't push back much; he's really disadvantaged at this point. He'd have to give up something absolutely crazy or he'll be in prison for the rest of his life.
@funder @TheDemCoalition #DworkinReport
Rick: Or, Trump could pardon Manafort.

Sarah Kendzior: This was the first I've heard of the parade being cancelled. Costing $92 million??
Rick: How do you justify spending $92 million on something that only one person wants?
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: $92 million could be spent on veterans, on healthcare, on so many more things that are more important than a parade.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #GasLitNation
Rick: I find it funny they waited until the NDAA was signed before they pulled back on the parade.

Sarah Kendzior: I think with all Republicans you need to look at what policies they've passed & what their rhetoric is. They say someone should do something about Russian interference (them!) but nothing's getting done.
@sarahkendzior #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Russia wants the US to be pulled out of NATO. They want NATO to be weakened, they want the US to be weakened, they don't want oligarchs to be investigated for anything.
@sarahkendzior #GasLitNation
Sarah Kendzior: Why would the Russians help Dems win elections? The Russians wouldn't get what they want then. Saying the Russians are helping Dems is absolute crap.

Rick: When do we have the intervention? Can we tell Twitter to turn Trump off?
Propane Jane: A lot of people say when Trump does this, he's distracting from something, but he's always lurching from tantrum to tantrum. Hard to tell when he's stable.
@docrocktex26 #TellTaleTweet
Propane Jane: He's had a bad week, but it's actually been a couple of bad months. Well, 19 bad months. The news cycle continues to be very bad.
@docrocktex26 #TellTaleTweet
Propane Jane: Trump really thought he showed strength w/ #Russia, and then when he returned to the US, he was flabbergasted to find the American public didn't agree.

Sarah Burris: Trump just figured out that The Apprentice was about apprenticeships. OMG, and he has the nuclear codes.
@SarahBurris @RawStory
Sarah: He literally said, "I'm just putting it together now." I don't know which is worse, that he didn't put apprentice/apprenticeship together before, or that he felt comfortable saying that in front of cameras & reporters. Bless his heart.
Rick: Evidently Trump had irrefutable evidence Day One about Russian interference but he's chosen to vehemently deny, refute it.
Sarah: The forensic detail is absurd. The world now knows the US knows what's going on when it comes to cyber espionage.
