Literally no part of these sentences is true, except that there are 39 remaining men at Guantanamo.
.@LindseyGrahamSC: "229 of the 729 people released from Gitmo have gone back to the fight, and we're talking about releasing people? This is nuts. One thing I can say about the 39 that are at Gitmo, not one has attacked the United States."

The Senate just voted down an amendment halting an arms sale to the genocidal Saudi regime over their war crimes in Yemen, despite 64% of Americans supporting it. Profoundly evil.

“Uncertain government run program” As opposed to your insurance company plan that will certainly cover the least amount of care and bill you into debt
Replying to @marmich351
Seems worth noting that most Americans like their own health insurance; they just worry about losing it. That doesn't mean they want to trade for an uncertain government run program.

THREAD. The @AssociatedPress has published another irresponsible, dangerous article contributing to a manufactured panic about "retail theft." It's basically an corporate and police union press release. A few things about it are astounding: sfgate.com/news/article/DAs-…

It’s only crime to take classified information & pass it on to a media organization if you’re a lower level officer or intel agency employee/contractor. If you’re high-ranking, you can, as Michael Hayden said “steal secrets.” And you may leak to your preferred reporters.
Individual analysts don’t get to make decisions to share classified intelligence reports with the press independently. That’s called an unauthorized disclosure, punishable under the law. Reality Winner stipulated to such when she plead guilty and accepted the plea agreement

Reality Winner needs all support she can get in order to convince Biden administration to pardon her. Her "60 Minutes" interview should help. But I must point out that all this support was missing before she trended last night. Be wary of grifters who said little up until now.

We had Zoe Alexandra (@ZoPepperC) of @peoplesdispatch on to discuss the presidential election in Honduras and how Xiomara Castro's campaign triumphed at the polls. Zoe was on the ground in Honduras on election day. WATCH: piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=bNt1L22F…

Let’s be clear: We will not stand by and allow our nation to go back to the days of back-alley abortions. We must codify Roe.

It takes a lot of courage to open up on national TV and share demons with viewers, many who are likely to be insensitive to the suffering brought about by the US government. But it’s important everyone knows what this government does to people like Reality Winner. #60Minutes

Generally good segment from #60Minutes. But honestly it’s 4 years since the world was introduced to Reality Winner, and the writers/producers of this institution are still making comments about her name that display a level of immaturity reserved for junior high school students

That aside, this is the kind of media segment which could go a long way toward helping to push powerful people in Washington to give her a pardon, or even commute her sentence so she is no longer on probation #60Minutes
