1/ An analysis of the first three paragraphs of the audacious smear job article tearing down a great woman, @ninaturner. (We got your back @ninaturner. ✊👊💪🙏) #receipts
2/ Paragraph one: That “Deep State conspiracies” link? The words “Nina” and “Turner” are nowhere to be found in the linked article.

3/ The link about the uranium one conspiracy? Her actual quote has nothing to do with what the linked article accuses her of (and what Fassler so easily, excitedly, and enthusiastically perpetuates).

4/ Second paragraph: @ninaturner took offense “because” the DNC offered her donuts and water.
5/ The linked article is another smear job by Fassler. From that article. She went to the DNC, they offer her donuts, and that made @ninaturner VERY ANGRY. thedailybanter.com/2017/08/nina-t…
6/ Right above the screenshot is the link to an article about what happened. Look what Fassler left out: “When they arrived, barricades blocked the entrance steps & a handful of DNC staffers stood waiting outside.” The DNC had a table of donuts in front of the barricade.
7/ By This logic, as long as you do some completely disconnected token gesture of kindness, that is all the excuse that is needed to do any controversial, hateful, or unjust thing that you like.
8/ Take another look at that 2nd paragraph. It is “irrational” that @ninaturner complained about being offered DONUTS when black people have suffered so much throughout American history. What does historical and institutional racism have anything to do with that day at the DNC?
9/ Third paragraph. NO WAY! 🙄🤦‍♀️
10/ That’s just the first 3 paragraphs. Either Fassler is good-faith & extraordinarily bad at his job (& every single mistake just so happens to be at the expense of @ninaturner), or bad-faith & gets paid to tear people down that threaten the paycheck of those who pay his.
11/11 We got your back @ninaturner. ✊👊💪🙏

Clearly, you are making a difference, otherwise...why bother? (As you told me last week regarding smears: address, acknowledge, then let it go. Done.)


Proud to say that I am now blocked by the author, @j_fassler, whose post is a bit ratioed. Link to article: thedailybanter.com/.amp/2018/04/n…

Broadcast last night by @TheYoungTurks: “Republicans ADMIT they’re coming for your Social Security and Medicare.“ Almost 50,000 views as I write this.
@AnaKasparian (45sec): “It is going to add $1.9 trillion to our federal deficit over the next 10 years.”

Why is increasing the deficit a bad thing? Yes, it should go to the many, not just funneled to the few, but what specifically is wrong with an increasing deficit?
Without a deficit, the American people have no value. They have no investments, no bank account, nothing in their wallet. Without a deficit, the American people are completely choked off from their government. Without a deficit, we have no society.

“Then why does the military budget keep going up as social programs keep getting cut?"

Now that’s a good question.


[thread – version 2]

You and I require income (a paycheck) before we can spend. We must choose and prioritize what each dollar is spent on. Food or medicine? Can’t afford both this week. Or... gotta chop that pill in half so we can buy food for our kids. Hard choices. One or the other. Either/or.
Before Nixon took the US dollar off the gold standard in 1971, the federal gov't was the same way: they needed income (i.e. taxes) before they could spend. Now that the US dollar is a "fiat" currency, "a budget" to me and you is


like "a budget" to the federal gov't.

Before the United States went off the gold standard in August of 1971, the federal government was exactly the same way: they needed income (taxes, borrowing) before they could spend on federal programs.

1/ There is so much good in this video by @cenkuygur and @TheYoungTurks: The federal government prioritizes war over programs for the powerless. Like many many times over. But Cenk (and @commondreams) are SO wrong in HOW it’s presented. #LearnMMT
2/ The fed govt is not constrained by💰. The U.S. is a sovereign nation with fiat (non-gold backed) currency. It has infinite💰at its disposal. Whatever it needs, write it in a bill, vote it into law. BAM. New💰. (It SHOULDN’T create infinite💰, but it damn well could.) #LearnMMT
3/ State & municipal govts, and households, ARE constrained by💰, since they can’t create the currency. (Well, at the risk of going federal prison for counterfeiting, they could certainly try.) The fed govt (Congress) are currency ISSUERS. Everyone else are currency USERS.

If you REALLY want #MedicareForAll, then stop talking about how we will “pay for“ #MedicareForAll.

#MMT #LearnMMT

An insightful response to our article on avoiding the “pay-for” trap.

Article: citizensmedia.tv/2018/04/12/mmt…

Comment: nakedcapitalism.com/2018/04/true-a…
And another:

As citizens, we make demands from our reps, it’s their job to deliver on those demands & sort out the details properly.

Me: “I want #MedicareForAll
Rep: “How RU going to pay for that?”
Me: “Stop making me do your job. You wanna be a leader? LEAD!”

The first of four parts of my interview with @NinaTurner, at Saturday's @OurRevNJ "People's Platform" event. Flint water is still poisoned after four years, yet "we are consumed by the man in the White House. We are consumed by him."
Nestle was granted water bottling rights by Michigan. Despite 80,000 public comments against (only 75 in favor), "the agency concluded that the company's plan met w legal standards." So, what?, they're legally obligated to grant the company these rights? npr.org/sections/thetw…
Twenty-four hours later, Michigan Governor @GovRickSnyder announces no more water bottles will be freely supplied to Flint residents.

America is broken. We need a revolution.
