Lie thread 🧵

He said Trump shut down all travel from China. Not true.

He said they sent PPE to states that they diverted PPE from ie. NY.

Fair tax on the ballot

People are so grossly misinformed and that I had to stop what I was doing today when a friend called me confused about the fair tax amendment.

She was all set to vote “yes” — which is the correct vote — until she received conflicting mailers yesterday. Then today she read the actual mail in ballot itself which she’s going to drop off at the election board location tomorrow. The gobbledygook on the mail back ballot is unreal.

I promised to send her some bullet points which I asked her to share since she has a large group of people she interacts with on Facebook and social media. I am sharing those here too.

I hope you will also pass them on to as many as you can and I appreciate any feedback if you have suggestions they are welcome.

Please 🙏🏽 vote YES for the FAIR Tax AMENDMENT.

💰 1st: It’s an amendment not a tax hike.
💰 2nd: The amendment lets the state tax millionaires and billionaires so they pay more taxes not you.
💰 3rd: When you file IRS taxes you pay a certain rate based on how much you make (for instance “single” or “married” pay different rates). With the amendment, there would be a category for millionaires and billionaires to pay a higher rate.
💰 4th: Illinois is in financial trouble due to the pandemic. State taxes will eventually go up because the federal government won’t help our state. You will pay more if you don’t vote yes so millionaires pay more instead.
💰 5th: Bottom line: Those who make more $$$ should pay more taxes. It’s only fair.

Share so everyone pays their fair share.

Trump campaign discussing plans to appoint own state electors, no matter the results

A real nightmare scenario: The eight closest battleground states might send competing sets of electors to Congress

Snip


According to a Sept. 23 article in The Atlantic, campaign advisers to Trump, in conjunction with Republican state leaders, are preparing to test this theory. Sources in the Republican Party, at both state and national levels, say that the campaign is considering a plan to "bypass" the popular vote results and install its own electors in key battleground states where the legislatures are controlled by Republicans.

Snip


Republicans control both legislative bodies in the six closest battleground states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Of those six, both Arizona and Florida have Republican governors.

After the national election, the plan goes, the Trump campaign would cry foul about rampant fraud and demand that state legislators ignore the ballot tabulations and choose their electors directly. If the campaign can sustain doubt or confusion about the ballot count, legislators will feel more and more pressure to take up the responsibility before the Dec. 8 deadline when electors' names are sent to Congress for verification.
The Atlantic reported that a Trump campaign legal adviser said this effort would be framed as protecting the will of the people.

Wallace is basically interrupting Biden WITH Trump. nt

Wallace's "questions" to Biden are more like indictments. Softballs to Trump. nt

Why would a perpetual liar's tax returns be legit?

Trump lied about being bankrupt when he was divorcing Marla Maples. He lied about the amount of money he inherited from his father. So it’s obvious to me he lied about losses that resulted in a $750 (?) tax payment. The same lies he’s told that got him a multimillion dollar tax refund years earlier according to Michael Cohen.

He’s not broke. He’s stolen too much campaign and taxpayer money and cheated the market too much to be broke.

I just hope somebody can put two and two together and pinpoint the lies then lock him up.

Cruz on CBS morning news

SO RUDE.

He won’t let the interviewer get a word in edgewise. The lack of civility by Republicans is what led us to where we are today.

Republicans are disgusting.

He repeatedly blames the network saying all they are reporting is Republicans’ hypocrisy while overlooking Democrats’ equal hypocrisy on the Supreme Court issue.

Such bullshit. Accusations without basis, blame and bothsideism... how do you fight this?

TikTok today CNN tomorrow?

Today is the last day American app stores will carry Tiktok because Trump is banning it for political reasons no doubt.

I just downloaded it and if I were you I would too simply because he does not want a lot of young TikTok users to have access to the videos that are posted there against him.

It doesn’t matter if you “like” the app or not or even if you use it. It’s that seemingly small “petty” acts like this brought us Trump. Make no mistake this is an important trial balloon.

If people do nothing when he bans TikTok -- even something as small as downloading -- it's only a matter of time before he bans another app -- maybe it's Facebook next or maybe it's Instagram and then .... who knows. 🤷‍♀️
