A pending Supreme Court judgement in the case of Boockvar decides Pennsylvania— Maajid \u0623\u0628\u0648 \u0639\u0645\u0651\u0627\u0631 (@MaajidNawaz) November 11, 2020
That was not a fraud case. The number of votes is secondary
It is about auditing a temporary mail ballot ringfence, imposed till a constitutional case against alleged judicial activism in PA is heard https://t.co/ek8gkDibKZ
The US Supreme Court has ducked hearing the case of Trump, Texas & 17 other states, on a procedural issue
They did not comment on any recent newsworthy fraud allegations
Trump still refuses to concede, so what are his remaining long shot legal routes?

....that, after careful study and consideration, think you got \u201cscrewed\u201d, something which will hurt them also. Many others likewise join the suit but, within a flash, it is thrown out and gone, without even looking at the many reasons it was brought. A Rigged Election, fight on!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2020
Matters escalate if:
i) the Electoral College is tied
ii) “faithless” electors don’t vote for their state candidate
Note: in the key swing states, this is legal https://t.co/62hSyFeXqq
It is important for election heads following this story to note that in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Georgia the electoral college is *not legally obliged* to vote as their state did. If disputes about election integrity continue, what these electors think, will matter— Maajid \u0623\u0628\u0648 \u0639\u0645\u0651\u0627\u0631 (@MaajidNawaz) November 13, 2020
iii) the House rejects some Electoral College votes, resulting in neither candidate receiving a majority.
Under the 12th Amendment, when the House meets Jan 6th they can refuse to approve the Electoral College votes. They instead vote on a 1 vote per 1 state basis
Trump wins that vote.
we are entering dangerous times with a possibility of civil unrest on both sides of the Atlantic, until Brexit & US elections are resolved
These two matters are philosophically connected because PM Johnson is stuck:
Trump backs Brexit & Biden backs the EU.
Executive Order (2018):
“(Within) 45 days after the..Director of National Intelligence..shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating..a foreign government..acted with..purpose of interfering in that election”

Instead of attacking those of us raising it, why aren’t mainstream “liberal” journalists on here as outraged as we are about how many senior Democratic Party figures seem to have been compromised by Chinese spies?
Genocide is non-negotiable

Does nobody else find it fascinating that Senator Dianne Feinstein\u2019s (D) staffer for 20 years has been outed as a Chinese spy— Maajid \u0623\u0628\u0648 \u0639\u0645\u0651\u0627\u0631 (@MaajidNawaz) November 10, 2020

Thinking *critically* about Trump’s term without allowing ideology to blind &obscure our analytical abilities, by Christopher Caldwell
“The lesson of Trump is that Americans have lately cared too much about ideology and too little about
“The early “Russiagate” inquiries..had their origins in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, just as Trump claimed”
“The Democrats’ first impeachment trial in 2019, over Trump’s attempts to gather dirt on Hunter Biden in Ukraine, was secretive and staged, and probably harmed the Democrats more than the Republicans.”
“Trump’s enemies were often under the impression his supporters had been hoodwinked or inattentive, but no. The whole country saw the same Trump. They just differed in their risk assessments”
“Trump was elected for a reason. He spoke to a downwardly mobile, mostly white working class that had been forgotten by the elites raking in money from the global economy. By re-engaging these outcasts with the political system, he...turned politics upside down”
China’s Elite Capture:
- Over 600 Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members at 19 branches of HSBC & Standard Chartered
- 123 CCP at Pfizer & AstraZeneca (coronavirus vaccines)
- Defence firms Airbus, Boeing & Rolls-Royce employed hundreds of
“In the nine months to September, 14 Chinese nationals were charged over alleged spying offences and the Trump administration last week changed its visa rules so members of the Chinese Communist Party and their families can stay or get travel documents for only a month.”
“Last week, John Ratcliffe, the US Director of National Security, warned that China posed the 'greatest threat to democracy and freedom' since the Second World War and was striving to dominate 'the planet economically, militarily and technologically'.”
it’s been 6 months since my 5 day hunger strike to highlight history’s most technologically sophisticated genocide in china (https://t.co/Vu8BVi2w4q)
yet still there’s not been a single mainstream UK newspaper frontpage on the Uyghur plight
never stop asking WHY?

This man is on it. He knows he only needs to keep *over 1/3 with him. Then more so, he needs the American nation on his side.
Honestly, Twitter misunderstanding what Bruce Castor is doing right now is like Twitter misunderstanding how Brexit & Trump won back then
“Why fear the people who were smart enough to pick you?” (*Listen*)
And yes, ditto for David Schoen. He knows who his audience is.
And he’s on target.
Two different audiences
1) Castor: public opinion
2) Schoen: the law
Oooooh, he held up the Red book. OUCH 😖😆
Dr Fauci Backed Wuhan Lab with $ for Risky Coronavirus Research
Over “200 scientists called for the work to be halted. The problem..is that it increased the likelihood that a pandemic would occur through a laboratory accident” in
Here’s a detailed 15min video investigation by UK PM David Cameron’s former Downing Street adviser @SteveHiltonx for his @NextRevFNC show on @FoxNews
The investigation is damning & implicates Dr Fauci & others.
Hilton calls for Fauci’s
Here are some further extracts from the @Newsweek article:
“last year, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the organization led by Dr. Fauci, funded scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology..for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses”
“Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release”
“with the backing of NIAID, the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7m over 6 years for research that included some gain-of-function work.. followed another $3.7m, 5-year project for collecting & studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4m”

Reporter's both-sides question:
"What was your role in what happened at the Capitol?
"Are you going to take responsibility for your role in inciting insurrection?"
The press enabled the storming of the Capitol because they never held GOP accountable for pushing #TheBigLie that election was stolen
I have been yelling about this for months. Starting here where @TerryMoran got it right
But after press returned to form
Not long after Nov 4th press started both-sidesing again. Question Republicans were asked over & over was:
"Do u think Biden won?"
This enabled the coup
The proper question at minimum:
"Why are u enabling this charade? Why are u spreading
Media should shove a mic in every Republicans face & demand to know why they are going along with this charade!— Texan (@Texan_21C) November 11, 2020
These, \u201cdo you think Biden won the election\u201d questions are weak bothsidesism that allowed a conman to become president
After repeatedly yelling that press wasn't demanding answers of GOP for spreading #TheBigLie I hoped this political violence on Dec 10th would finally get press to demand answers. But no. They continued to both-sides
I noted how impotent the American press was acting by treating #TheBigLie as credible. The press is supposed to hold people in power accountable, but beside @TerryMoran on election night, they by and large
Reminder that there was political violence 2 days ago bc the GOP is conning their supporters & actively engaging in a coup— Texan (@Texan_21C) December 11, 2020
I am trying to come up with an analogy that fully captures how much American press is behaving as if it's impotent, during Americas 1st coup attempt!
What people need to understand is that these contradictions aren’t a SYMPTOM of Trumpism.
They point to its very core - its emotional, psychological appeal to millions of America. The ability to sustain these contradictions is why Trump was elected, how his movement exists.
Ultimately what Trump offers - what fascism offers - is a philosophy of total emotional and psychological indulgence. Believe whatever makes you feel best. Live your politics examined.
Don’t want to take credit for the insurrection, but want to claim its dead as your martyrs? Go ahead! Say it! The Capitol was attacked by antifa but Ashlii Babbit was a hero patriot.
Hate China, but annoyed by the scolding liberals and their masks? Call the coronavirus a Democratic hoax - and at the same time, a deadly foreign bioweapon.

When I was sexually harassed by the director of the area I was working in, I was afraid to report it because I was worried that "getting him in trouble" would result in the subtle retaliation of missed leadership opportunities.
I wanted to continue working on the team I was on, because I'd gained a lot of very deep knowledge and expertise in that area, as well as reputation and camaraderie with the other folks working in that area. I didn't want to make the situation more "difficult."
To get promoted at Google, several need to happen: 1. you need opportunities for ownership and leadership above your current level (basically, opportunities to show you're working at the next level you're trying to get promoted to). The work you're "assigned" has a big impact.
2. You need glowing reviews from peers, *at or particularly above the level you're hoping to get promoted to.* Basically, you need people a lot more senior than you to say you're doing awesome work.
Things you do need: a product that solves a problem for someone. That's it.
If you solve a problem for someone, you will be surprised by how much you don't need.
If you don't solve a problem for someone, you'll be surprised by how much won't help.

I have spent 1.5 months on this app. You can make more $ in 2 days.
I'm still happy that I launched a paid app bcs it involved extra work:
- backend for processing payments (+ permissions, webhooks, etc)
- integration with payment processor
- UI for license activation in Electron
- machine activation limit
- mailgun emails
These things seemed super scary at first. I always thought it was way too much work and something would break. But I'm glad I persisted. So far the only problem I have is that mailgun is not delivering the license keys to certain domains like https://t.co/6Bqn0FUYXo etc. 👌
omg I just realized that me . com is an Apple domain, of course something wouldn't work with these dicks
This isn't actually right, so here is another suggestion.
2/ I remember being 26 and writing about reading 52 books a year. I wrote blog posts about it. They got copied. It became "a thing." Now it's in Twitter bios. It looks impressive but it's insanely useless and I shouldn't have done it.
3/ what I should have known at that time is that only young idiots like myself, with no accomplishments, find list of tiny achievements impressive. Anyone who has actually done anything of substance doesn't gaf
4/ what is actually difficult, and worthwhile, instead is to do ONE single thing for a very, very long time. It's much harder and much rarer and results in outlier outcomes much more often.
Of course you can find this out too late if you are chasing the dragon of Ted talks etc
5/ if I had only worked on a startup for a year, I would've gotten nowhere, the same way that if you lift for 3 months, it achieves nothing. Everything good in life comes from perseverance, but at the beginning, you're just like "I need to be somebody!!!"
