Erik Paulsen is known for his "pop-up" sessions.
He suddenly pops up unannounced (or announced online mere minutes before it happens) in grocery store aisle for 10 minutes to talk to people. That's NOT accessible.

➡️That's another way of hiding from constituents.
#PaulsenFail Erik Paulsen's well-known for not holding town halls.
He hasn't really held town hall in over 7 years...ones he claims to have held recently were limited to hand-picked people, in hand-picked locations, and hand-picked questions.

➡️Those were NOT real town halls.

Zephyr Teachout is a well-known political activist. She's also Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University and has worked tirelessly against corruption and social injustice.

She is a specialist in antitrust law and corruption, and is the best choice for NY Attorney General. Zephyr's pretty amazing...I've been watching her for several years.
* Ran against Andrew Cuomo for Gov/got ~35% of vote, pushed him to left.
* Tireless to root out corruption & 1 of first to support "little people."

Guess those talks didn't go as well as they thought:
North Korea accuses U.S. of making unilateral demands for denuclearization.

We have seen our country take a nosedive into becoming "Fourth Reich."

United States of America is now running internment camps.

Our concern now is all the children who are in these camps.

➡️So, where did they come from & why did their parents bring them here?

Since Trump supporters don't care about immigrant children:

Republican donors/rich Trump supporters are raking in millions, eventually billions, of OUR tax money...but Trump administration could go back to Obama policy and pay less than $40/day per immigrant.
#ItsAllAboutProfit More questions:

Where are the babies, the toddlers and the little girls?
Are those babies the ones that were sent to the adoption agencies?
Why isn't the Trump administration even TRYING to reunite these families?
Is there more profit in detaining them or adopting them out?

UN report presented to Human Rights Council this week found in U.S.:

40M people live in poverty

Not 'new' news, but retrospective comparisons to #TrumpRussia are pretty déjà vu.
In 1987:
Donald Trump, Wharton Dean Donald Palmer and former White House Chief of Staff Donald Regan named in scheme to divert Wharton funds to Contra rebels in Nicaragua. Big scandal then.
1/4 President Ronald Reagan claimed he had no knowledge of their scheme. Wharton secretary acted as link between Wharton Dean, Russell Palmer, and Oliver North.

Hitler didn't start by killing and gassing people.
He started by criminalizing them, blaming society's problems on their existence, and declaring them "illegal." Then deporting them became normalized. Are parallels starting to dawn on you yet?

In the 30s and 40s Hitler's propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels developed videos to portray the Jews as inferior and evil people - as part of his plan to later on justify their extermination (the Holocaust). 🔥

This is the most recent Trump ad:
