In the Baltics. 2016.


Going to a #BlackLivesMattters march? Below is a guide to protecting your privacy. I’m working on legislation to ban @TheJusticeDept from using powerful surveillance devices like Stingrays and Dirtboxes on protestors. These devices can access your phone.

The names of those killed by racism and police brutality are written along Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis, where #GeorgeFloyd was suffocated by police. (See the vertical image)

My God people, the CBO is projecting a $15.7t shortfall in nominal GDP over the next decade, 5.3% below pre-pandemic forecast. The shortfall from 2008-2018 was 6%. The FORECAST is nearly as bad as that miserable experience. Don't lose the thread.

Early “lid” called at the White House already which means we don’t expect to see the president on-camera today. Major protests expected nearby this afternoon. Fencing outside and road closures in place all around the complex.


Protesters arriving in the nation’s capital for the ninth consecutive day of demonstrations found the White House encircled by more than a mile of tall metal fencing


Thousands of people in Philadelphia continue to protest racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd. Crowds in Center City stretched from the steps of the Art Museum and past the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.


This Week, Mark Zuckerberg Sided with Donald Trump. History Won’t Forget It.


Many people say there are more people on the DC streets today than there were on #BunkerBoyTrump’s Inauguration Day. Be safe everyone: #WearAMask; hydrate and don’t take the bait.


Attorney General William Barr’s story has changed so many times that I’ve lost count. Enough is enough: @JusticeOIG must investigate the role that AG Barr & @TheJusticeDept played in the attacks on peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square. And AG Barr should resign.


Scientists funded by Zuckerberg sent him a letter calling Facebook’s practices "antithetical" to his philanthropic mission


BREAKING: Judge in Jeffrey Epstein who has refused to release grand jury records has ties to those with a stake in keeping them secret.


Buffalo, New York police officers Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe have been charged with second-degree assault in connection with the graphic caught-on-video shove of a 75-year-old man during a protest. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Berlin right now: Tens of thousands join protest against racism.


Protesters gather for massive day of rallies in D.C.


Black Lives Matter. The murder of George Floyd once again displays the harsh reality of racial bias and police brutality that black Americans confront in our country. As millions take to the streets to demand justice, I had some reflections I wanted to share:


A republican joining the marches today would be something.


Androgens (male hormones) could help SARS-COV-2 infect cells.That could be why more men than women succumb to COVID19 This could explain new data that disproportionate # of men w/male-patterned baldness (linked to androgens) are hospitalized


Another view:


Food delivery guy snatched off his bike, surrounded by 10+ cops, cuffed and arrested. 1. Why? 2. Why 10 officers? 3. Why is anyone holding clubs? 4. If there wasn’t a video, would you believe this happened?

Wow, blockbuster stuff. Listen: Jeff Epstein’s ex partner


Wow.


When your Uncle Rudy and Aunt Nikki post bullshit about vote by mail, remind them the only 3 known cases of voter fraud in FL were committed by Donald Trump, Kayleigh McEnany and Derek Chauvin.


Winning! Tehran...”now possesses about eight times as much nuclear fuel as was permitted under the nuclear accord that Mr. Trump abandoned two years ago.”

New Trump Appointee to Foreign Aid Agency Has Denounced Liberal Democracy and “Our Homo-Empire”


Sid Miller falsely says George Soros orchestrated George Floyd protests


It's now been revealed that Trump put out a falsified jobs report for May. Unemployment is actually 16.3% - not the 13.3% Trump bragged about. White House claims it was a "miscalculation error" So why is @CNN still running the wrong report? Where is the on screen correction???


Private-equity firms get a major win in Washington with the Trump administration paving the way for the industry to tap the trillions of dollars held in Americans’ retirement accounts

Bad, very bad.

The Putin-Bannon-Trump plan continues apace.


This is really something. Gen Milley argued against sending troops into US cities by telling Trump the looting was "dwarfed by peaceful protests," as NYT puts it: https://t.co/GO1lOPatOO Trump does not *want* this to be true. He wants to create exactly the opposite impression:


The U.S. economy is unlikely to snap back quickly and may not return to normal until 2021, according to the chief of one of the nation’s biggest ports


Why did this Facebook account steer gun lovers, George Floyd protesters to the same spot?


News on DC National Guard helos: -All helicopter flight operations with DC Army Guard are grounded until the investigation wraps -Both helicopters involved, a Lakota and Blackhawk, were medavac aircraft -- not just the Lakota

Lindsey Graham does not want you to retweet this. Please do. We need 10,000 retweets.


Trump approves plan to withdraw one-third of πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ troops from Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ. Apparently Berlin wasn’t informed of the decision. That’s the state of πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ relations at the moment.


Dear @CNBC @NBCNews @MSNBC @ABC @CBSNews @foxnewsalert @CNN: Next time, when the jobs report itself says there is an error, please read it first before blithely reporting the false talking points of @realDonaldTrump. Actual data shows unemployment rate went UP, to 16.3%.


Donald Trump retweets Glenn Beck and Candace Owens trashing George Floyd


Watch this clip again in light of recent events. Trump says he is talking about one senator "on the other side," but the reality is that he knew exactly who he was talking about and it was a Republican. "I've seen that person in very, very bad situations, somewhat compromising"


To be honest, this tells me there is a bully culture in that PD. I cannot believe 57 people resigned on principle. But at some point, they calculate the "cost" of -not- doing so, internally, as worse than just joining in. Similar dynamic to GOP. Stuff like that starts at the top.


Why were Trump’s two most consequential foreign policy moves in last wk gestures to Russia? Pushing invite to G7 & reducing US troops in Germany. When: 1- Rubio says it is stoking division 2- It remains in Ukraine 3- Threatens US ships & aircraft What is benefit to US?


This dude trolling the police with Star Wars - Imperial March is exactly the Twitter content I am here for today..


I read the 193 tweets/retweets of @realDonaldTrump today so you don’t have to. Here are the conclusions: -Trump is not well -@POTUS still has no plan to address systematic racism -Trump retweeted a tweet that said George Floyd being treated as a martyr “sickens me”


Video of the incident (if you’re among the three people who missed it).


In a meeting in the Oval Office, Trump expressed a desire to quell the protests by sending forces—not the National Guard but regular military—into American cities. Milley resisted. “They got into a shouting match,” then Trump finally backed down


Countdown to curfew in Atlanta


Take one guess who else is calling these protests an "American Maidan"


We turned on the night light for him so he dreams about #BlackLivesMatter Plaza


have you guys wished for an unrelenting force on the left? like tucker carlson or sean hannity with a heart and a brain and no attachment to the dark powers that be? well join me on the 4th of july then. prepare to flip this car over.


The president is now retweeting a Glenn Beck video that questions George Floyd's character. Earlier, he said it was a "great day" for Floyd


I quite literally forgot the sitting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Milley, slammed @realDonaldTrump, that’s how many generals and admirals have told Trump to get lost lately


Today, the Marine Corps released guidance on the removal of public displays of the Confederate battle flag. MARADMIN 331/20:

Reminder: I posted this video all the back in FEBRUARY and it had over 1 million+ views. The story making the rounds now is ONLY 10% of the story. It's a helluva lot worse than that. And like I said in February the truth is coming.


You have to be fucking kidding me


Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who also served as Trump's ambassador to Germany, has advocated for the reduction of troops in Germany and pushed for Berlin to spend more on its own defense


I'm a DC licensed attorney. If you signed an NDA to protect a crooked racist homophobic senator and need an attorney to review it pro bono, DM me.

New: Brands have long been able to bid for the premier slot at the top left of Amazon’s listings, but during the pandemic the online retailer has begun using this position for its private-label items, raising antitrust concerns.


Let’s just remember the 57 members of the Buffalo Emergency Response Team HAVEN’T retired from the police dept. They simply left that team. They are still getting salaries. Paid for by taxpayers. Maybe they should be fired.


"McEnany did not respond to HuffPost queries about either her or her boss's voter registration discrepancies. Providing false information on a registration in Florida is a felony punishable by up to five years in state prison."


Here's @ktumulty with a history lesson on White House fencing and this kicker: "A president who needs to take shelter behind fences and barriers because he feels threatened by his own citizens is not their leader. He is their prisoner."


Dear @realDonaldTrump: I served on active duty in the U.S. military to defend the right of the people to stand, dance, salute, not salute, or kneel in front of the American flag. Also, when are you going to commit to reforms to stop government from murdering Black Americans?


"Three weeks after reopening, Palm Beach County shows biggest one-day increase in coronavirus cases"

A botched pandemic response. An economic collapse not seen since the Great Depression. A country split into chaos. Donald Trump, “You’re so lucky I’m president.” Are we, Don?

AG Barr seems to think that his authority over law enforcement places him above the law. He couldn't be more wrong. In response to his continued defiance of Congress, I introduced a bill cutting his office budget by $50 million. Barr must be reined in.
