(Thread) Did The Russians work with Paul Manafort to ensure a #Trump candidacy - as early as 2005? #TrumpRussia
2. In Mid 2005, Paul Manafort signed a lobbying deal with Oleg Deripaska washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…
3. By the end of the year, there were multiple stories about a Russian funded think tank being started in the United States. All of these stories involved a conversation between Dmitri Simes and Putin propandist Gleb Pavlovsky web.archive.org/web/2006052401…
4. Kommersant reported that this think tank would be funded by Oleg Deripaska - which he promptly denied #TrumpRussia web.archive.org/web/2014082610…’s_Answer/
5. This makes sense considering Lozansky's 40 year desire to turn the US into a Russian satellite state. thesternfacts.com/how-one-man-in…
5b. According to this conspiracy website, @alanagoodman seems to have information that Manafort was behind the think tank conspiracyschool.com/blog/trump-pup…
6. Months after this plan by Deripaska and co hatched, and after Manafort signed a deal with Deripaska....Manafort bought a condo in Trump Tower #TrumpRussia ny.curbed.com/2016/10/25/134…
7. RussiaBlog stated that this had long been an idea of Lozansky web.archive.org/web/2006052412…
8: Putin previewed the think tank idea in a speech in 2007 #TrumpRussia wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
9: Lozansky friend and Ally Andranik Migranyan was chosen to run the NY office of the think tank by Lavrov wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
10: The chairman of the board of the "Institute for Democracy and Cooperation" was Anatoly Kucherena wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
11. Kucherena is a well known lawyer in Russia - He defended Russian Oligarch/Mobster Boris Berezofsky before Boris Fled Russia washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/inatl/l…
12. and bought a condo at Trump International Hotel observer.com/2008/08/inyeti…
13. Kucherena would then also defend Manafort's Ukrainian president - Yanukovich as he showed up in Moscow #TrumpRussia haaretz.com/world-news/1.5…
14. And Russian Mobster Taiwanchik - who ran a gambling ring out of Trump Tower. nytimes.com/2013/07/28/wor…
15. Migranyan and the IDC held Joint events with the Center for the National Interest on a regular basis - the same group that sponsored the controversial event at the Mayflower talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/sessions-ma…
16. In 2013, Edward Snowden fled the US - and his lawyer was none other than Kucherena - who sits on the board of the FSB public chamber.
17. In 2014, Migranyan wrote an op/ed about how Putin was Russia's Reagan nationalinterest.org/commentary/put…
18. And he also defended Hitler rferl.org/a/russia-crime…
19. Migranyan was known as the architect of the Kremlin policy advocating for reasserting control over the former Soviet Satellite states (under Yeltsin) which seems to be happening now with the help of many American Lobbyists (like Manafort)
20. Why would Dana Rohrabacher invite a Kremlin propagandist like Migranyan to speak to the halls of congress about the danger Muslims face? #TrumpRussia russialist.org/testimony-on-r…
21. On June 15th, 2015 - Donald Trump announced he was running for president.
22. Two weeks later - Migranyan announces that he is closing down his Kremlin think tank declaring "Mission Accomplished" interpretermag.com/russian-defend…
23. Two weeks after that - Lozansky writes an op/ed naming some of his Kremlin allies. thedailybeast.com/putin-bootlick…
24. Of course we remember Lozansky talking about the "Stars and Stripes Revolution" he envisioned for the US? #TrumpRussia thesternfacts.com/from-orange-re…
25. Here is Migranyan (with Paul Saunders) talking about a "Colors Revolution" in the US while he brags about Trumps win. #TrumpRussia facebook.com/thenatlinteres…
26: So, I ask you, #TrumpRussia people, Did Paul Manafort organize a think tank that lead to #Trump's candidacy? Was it intentional? Is it not sketchy as hell that said think tank closed down weeks after Trump announced?
27. Regardless, Migranyan and Lozansky are just part of the effort to create the #GrandOldPutinParty through Russian Active measures, which you can read more about in another thread. #TrumpRussia
28. It also appears like Bob Dole was involved in helping the IDC launch. #TrumpRussia
29. Here's a video of Lozansky, Migranyan, and former CIA agent Ray Mcgovern spouting Kremlin Propaganda on RT everytube.de/watch/dailymot…
30. This Institute for Democracy and Cooperation had more than just a New York Office. It opened an office in Paris too - and appears to have been working with Le Pen rferl.org/a/russia-soft-…
31. This office is run by John Laughland - a British Brexit supporter and opponent of Globalism goodreads.com/book/show/4110…
32. Putin's close friend and oligarch Vladimir Yakunin met with Rohrabacher in April 2016 thesternfacts.com/proof-trump-kn…
33. He also opened a think tank in Berlin in July 2016 doc-research.org/en/our-events/…
34. Laughland works for Yakunin's think tank too. These people are attacking Europe like they're doing to us too. #KremlinGate #TrumpRussia doc-research.org/en/author/john…
35. Migranyan went out of his way to say the IDC was NOT Kremlin funded....even thought it is. themoscowtimes.com/articles/russi…

My thoughts on this whole Kavanaugh debacle.

Brett Kavanaugh does not belong on the Supreme Court. He’s a partisan hack in a way no SC Justice has ever been. Not only did he involve himself in the Vince Foster conspiracy bs during the Clinton years but he literally represented
the Bush campaign in the 2000 Election Debacle and he also wrote the torture memos - and lied about it.

google.com/amp/s/www.wash…
He has also stated in the past that presidents shouldn’t be indicted, and has some severe dubious Russia connections.

Kavanaugh doesn’t belong in the court because of his views on presidential power.

Kavanaugh doesn’t belong in the court because of raging partisanship and involvement in torture, the 2000 recount, and Clinton’s impeachment
Kavanaugh doesn’t belong in the court because of his mysterious financial issues.
Kavanaugh doesn’t belong in the court because of Merrick Garland .

I find the idea of “coastal elites” to be a completely bullshit made up idea. You can’t tell me that elitism is limited to people who border oceans, or that to know the “real America” you need to spend time in a state like Kansas.
I’ve lived within 50 miles of Boston my entire life, in five cities/towns and I’ve experienced such a cross section of different groups of people that It’s silly to lump them all together
There are dying mill cities reminiscent of anything you’d see in the Midwest littered all over New England. You go there, you find communities rife with drugs, poverty, and people feeling abandoned.

Thread: #TrumpRussia there’s something rotten in #Ohio politics.

I believe that a foreign agent is trying to get elected to the position of Montgomery County Recorder.

My biggest question is: Why Ohio? why Dayton?
He’s been identified as being involved in the Azerbaijani laundromat, receiving $250k from the government days after he was elected to the Dayton school board.

Does he even have kids?occrp.org/en/azerbaijani…

Two weeks ago I speculated that Columbia Gas will not be done fixing the gas explosions until Thanksgiving.

On Friday, they agreed with me.

This is going to become a humanitarian crisis VERY VERY quickly.
boston.cbslocal.com/2018/09/21/col…
They’re already talking about giving hot plates and space heaters to people to get them through it. wcvb.com/article/hot-pl…
They’re also saying they’re going to reimburse the costs of switching to a different source, which is expensive.

The document makes it VERY clear they customers effected by the gas explosions will be reimbursed for reasonable costs. columbiagas.com/docs/libraries…

Thread: I once went to the police to report an Identity theft committed against me by a close member of my family.

The cop spent 20 min bullying me and basically calling me an asshole until I agreed to say that I did not know who committed the crime.

I’m an affluent white male.
Now imagine for a second you’re a woman, and someone sexually assaulted you.

Or you’re a minority and someone stole something from you.

Or or or.

This is why rape is underreported. This is why Kavanaugh was not arrested 35 years ago.
I’ve said before that I’m pretty moderate.

What I haven’t said is that white male privilege never really made sense to me until this whole kavanaugh bs.

Now I get it.

Stop shaming a victim who was afraid to report a crime because the system is biased against her.
