July-August 2018 Tweets Preserved

  1. Somewhere, in an alternate reality, America is discussing a brighter future through carbon emission cuts, single payer healthcare and free education through college, not whether there is a tape of the president saying the n-word on a reality show.

  2. Browder and the Beast, below: “So, let’s re-translate Putin’s remarks at Helsinki. What he was saying to Trump in effect was: “Let me talk to the Americans who exposed my mafia state and I’ll let you talk to the spies who I’ll never admit helped get you elected.”

  3. “Shadow banning” is what Twitter is thought to do, and the right again shadow accuses, while the Democrats are doing no fake news, and paying no one to promote or suppress political speech. What are fake followers?

  5. Because we did not study the liberal arts, we no longer know the difference between liberty and tyranny. Our students do their most serious study of their nation in eighth grade, then not again?

  6. I once discussed education with Rich De Vos sr., , III.

  7. Ask St. John’s college to send over a guy to describe the liberal arts- the study of man and nature for its own sake.

  8. Retweeted 1A

    The liberal arts, as distinct from trade schools, aim to educate the free man and citizen.

  9. NPR: Google is collecting location data even when the setting is turned off. The same is occurring with CAMERA AND MICROPHONE in all tech, and THAT is how Putin turned the election. It is still happening because WE just do not get it!

    This is a hard question, but protected speech does not include slander, libel, extreme porn or even false advertising. When speech is an action and the action is a crime (such as transporting weapons in 3D), it is not protected speech, eh? Now how to apply this to the internet!

    Whoa! What a contrast and compare! They violated my daughter’s rights and the court never ruled on it. She plead guilty and is now facing prison.

  17. The investigation begins not from some partisan agent, but with men like Manafort, Page, Flynn, etc., Trump’s history with Russia, and the way he thinks business and the world work.

  18. Drake and Zimmerman: Did the “white” guy start the fight and then shoot the black guy when he he defended himself? What does he think he is, a cop? (Probly a “mental health” worker!)

  19. I need to tell you this: The other day I drove by this woman Holding a sign Protesting children in cages Just her She’s been out every day All summer She’s been flipped off Had drinks thrown at her Cursed at And she’s still out there I don’t know her name But she’s my hero.

    I have tried to contact Halderman since November of 2016 to ask about data collection and targeted interference, similar to the Cambridge Analytica practice later uncovered. I was prevented.

    Mark A. McDonald added,

  22. Trump wants the illusion that the Russia question begins with hacking and dirt on Hillary. It begins rather from seeing what is done on the internet to control opinion and politics, as we have told our representatives since November of 2016.

  23. On Strzok: Trump can enter conspiracy with Russia to elect a tyrant to our destruction, and no FBI agent can know it, or they are fired? This is because we did not impeach- now we will find out what it means to do nothing.

  24. Susan Bro is on Fourth Street, where her daughter Heather Heyer was murdered one year ago. She brought purple flowers for Heather, and two roses for the state officers who died that day.

  25. Sarah Kendzior

    And election fraud, payoffs to prostitutes, ripping off seniors through Trump U…maybe its that Manhattan thing.

    Mark A. McDonald added,

  26. This is why Republicans do not claim Eisenhower.

  27. Today we honor the memory of Heather Heyer, whose spirit we see in every person who stands up to reject hatred and bigotry. Make no mistake: this fight goes on. The battle for the soul of this nation rests with each of us, everyday.

  37. Novichok: Putin wants both to deny it and to reap the effect of terror especially on his spies, since they know the method chosen is only available to Putin.

  38. That Congress is leaving us exposed to Russian election fraud and Trump rewards in bribery for future “favors” ought spell the end of both parties, but surely of the “GOP.” They do not even believe in republican government, but tyranny!

  39. Mickey D’s want to do facial recognition at the drive through. I’ll ask one more time, are you aware that your tech is spying on you in your home by camera and microphone? Gee, I wonder how Putin turned that election?

  46. What a condition the fate of mankind is in if the perennial truth holds true, that like Mike Rogers going to serve his new president back in 2016, an honest man cannot safely proceed in politics at all. Given nuclear weapons, these will be controlled by tyrants.

  47. They say that IF Trump used Russia to seize power and rewards Russia in his foreign policy, there is nothing we can do about it, BECAUSE he has seized power.

  48. We can do something about it by law and Constitutional procedure despite human ignorance, bias, and the truth of every ad hominem argument.

  49. IF: Again, we say that Something CAN be done about it IF a foreign power used Trump to harm America and Trump stupidly used that foreign power to seize the presidency by manipulating opinion.

    Big Russian law enforcement raid at Khodorkovsky’s foundation in Moscow. I think this is a reaction to MBK sending journalists (who were brutally killed) to Central African Republic to investigate Putin’s mercenaries there.

    Bill Browder added,

  53. Reality Leigh Winner remains in jail and faces Prison for leaking the doc with proof of the Russian attack on our election system. Every time I type it out is sounds so wrong…

  54. The St Cuthbert Gospel, a miraculously well-preserved 7th century manuscript that is the oldest European book to survive fully intact. It was produced in the North East of England in the late 7th century and was placed in St Cuthbert’s coffin on Lindisfarne in 698.

  55. America needs to ask Trump: Did someone tell you the election would bee turned for you? And the means undetectable? So that you would know who to reward? Mueller and the Senate need to ask this, and indeed, Trump cannot answer without committing perjury.

  56. On ICE: Tomorrow on NPR, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, a study of the radicalization of ICE and the industry of detention facilities. ICE is not normal, and the criminal customs enforcement makes genuine border policy impossible. ICE is only targeting brown people! Any Russians?

  65. Better quit whilst I still have a head!

  66. This is a remarkable survival story. I’d sure buy a ticket or two for a movie re-telling. The remarkable story of four stranded nuns, a remote island and a heroic submarine rescue

  67. The Bill of Rights must be ADAPTED to the dimension of the internet. Other nations do not have a 250 year experience with political liberty. We allow Nazis speech and hope to deal with it. Germany suppresses Nazi speech, cause their not sure they CAN deal with it.

  68. On 3-D printing: We have not begun to consider that publication is worldwide, while the First Amendment applies only to the U. S. The harm this will do in foreign lands is literally unfathomable. Imagine limitless arms in the f’n Congo!

  69. It is amusing that the FBI is now supported by the hippies, America having come full circle. But we warned you that there must be oversight if we are to “secure these rights,” and Congress refused to oversee. No one has yet been held accountable even for what they did to Dr. King

  70. Hey China, throw out the Western tyrant Karl Marx and those setting up tyranny based on him, and turn at least to your native wise man Lao Tzu instead! Are you free men? Are you proud of tyranny? Do you like you boss? Quit, then!

    Trump has violated his oath of office by intimidating the press from the office of the presidency, but the Americans no longer understand or believe in political liberty, so we do not notice…until there is actually the foretold blood on the pavement, then it is too late.

    Mark A. McDonald added,

  75. Not that the Russians would not…

  76. So, when they say the Russian goal was to “sew division,” is that not fake news to prevent us from opposing tyranny? Tyrants like “unity,” once they are in power. So “don’t go to any demonstrations, these may be Russian organized,” etc. Get it?

  77. Anabelle

    Despite a weak field, could Trump have won the Republican primary? The repeated, new and unusual defiance of the polls seems to indicate something is not right throughout the primaries.

  80. Trading information for policy leverage is not illegal? Trump does not get the difference between gangster style business and genuine politics. It is “bribery,” and impeachable.

  81. Lest we forget Donald Jr had dinner with indicted Russian spy Maria Butina and her handler Alexander Torshin at an event in May 2016, weeks before June 9 Trump Tower meeting.

  89. Bill Browder

    One would not want to be Putin’s carpenter! Our error was to think the Russians normal business men, like one could do business with them. They had their chance, about 18 years.

  91. Yes, Mr. Coats, Russia WAS a threat to our democracy, in 2016, when they used the internet to end free elections and impose tyranny and adherence to tyranny on the U. S., and those who said so were locked up for it while their fellow citizens did nothing.

  291. Is America ready yet to address the truth that the internet companies are collecting :”data” by camera and microphone in our very living rooms? Gee, how did those Russians turn that election ?

  292. Notice that what makes a statement worthy to Trump is that it be “Strong and powerful.”

  293. And of course, the 4-4 Supreme Court needs to void the 2016 election and devise an interim solution until legitimately elected office holders can be restored. It is simply too dangerous to allow Putin to continue making plans on the building blocks of “Republican” self interest.

  294. And we need to IMPEACH as soon as possible for national security, and try to repair the damage and avoid catastrophe, which becomes worse and more likely the longer we delay.

  295. Trump is so obviously guilty of election fraud and bribery that the Republicans need to impeach, and then sit out an election to regroup as a party, in penance for the sins that allowed this disaster to occur.

  296. Trump then tried to say the same thing he said about Russian interference when he betrayed that he had been told the means would be “undetectable:” “Anyone might have done it,” like some “400 lb man!”

  297. “No effect on the election” is the new thing being repeated, because we do not want to face the opposite, which is true. Putin intended to do enough to turn the election while avoiding unnecessary risk, and did it because the internet is new.

Who, What, Where, When, Why…and How

   On NPR, All Things Considered last week, Christina Shokley mentions the classic questions of journalism, or any human story with a logos, and it set us to musin’ about the four causes in Aristotle’s Metaphysics in relation. The classic example, easily seen in an artificial being, is a table: The what is the table, the purpose to read or eat, the material wood or such, and the efficient cause is the human carpenter, with the form in mind to suit the function, setting to work, each thing in order. In our oversimplified account, the formal and final causes go together, and the material and efficient causes go together. In another way, the final and efficient causes occur in time, while the formal and the material occur in space. “Who” is the particular being in a human story, but a story might concern other beings or even, say, a rock that fell and got wedged in a river, etc. Most particular beings, those with extension, taking up space, if you have noticed, are living beings, and this in itself is strange. But the Aristotle leaves it for us to notice that natural being are not as clear regarding the purpose as are artificial beings, things made, mostly by man. The “what” of a thing cannot be understood without its function, and living things have purposes of their own, actions as well as causes. Animals that move themselves have purposes to their actions, and so especially have stories, with a Who What Where When Why, and How!

   When and how both concern time. Where and who concern space, or space as well as time, since all space is at a certain time, and all time that of a certain space. though “what” need not be spatial, and like a verbal noun, might identify a process.

   Earth, air and water are three conditions of matter, while fire, or energy, as an efficient cause. Mater and energy are said to be nonconvertible, and space and time to be inseparably related, while none of these are logos or meaning, which pertains hardly at all to the material and almost entirely to the formal cause. There is no matter without form, even a rock, while there is lots of form without any matter at all, such as the logos of stratification or the eternal truths of math and logic, or the metaphysics of journalism.

I’ll be sure to dig out my Aristotle, Metaph. I.26? and rethink all this, when I get when!

      Page had been associated with Russian intel officers operating in the United States since at least 2013. He called himself an “informal advisor to the Kremlin” and then mysteriously emerged as an advisor to Trump’s Russia-backed campaign. The need for surveillance was clear.

    13. No matter how much waffles, the facts are clear: Russia interfered with our 2016 elections. It’s high time that Congress act to prevent the next attack. That’s why 21 bipartisan AGs are urging basic steps Congress can take before it’s too late.

    14. I believe the Russians will try to undermine our elections again and I strongly urge every election official to use the resources available to them to prevent it from happening.

    26. Laws must be passed recognizing abuse of data crime and election fraud, but in the mean time, the courts are still able to address the problems, if we would. Amazon and Facebook etc. have bloated profits literally due to seizing the value of our “data.”

    27. It is just now dawning on the Americans that they have a tyrant elected president no where near legitimately. Oh, yes, and the consequences, if we do not fix it, are nuclear.

    28. So, no one realizes that their tech is spying on them through camera, microphone and other unknown means? And that this “data collection” has ended free elections?

      No one gets this?

      Mark A. McDonald added,

      We MUST take away the fruits of Trump-Russian election fraud, or we will find out the unknown end game of Putin, the hard way. Step 1: IMPEACH!!

    83. Say, Mitch McConnell, are you opposed to ALL foreign election interference, or only that which does not elect “Republicans?”

    84. And protected us from “terrorism” to boot!

    85. Is America ready yet to address the truth that the internet companies are collecting :”data” by camera and microphone in our very living rooms? Gee, how did those Russians turn that election ?

    86. Notice that what makes a statement worthy to Trump is that it be “Strong and powerful.”

    87. And of course, the 4-4 Supreme Court needs to void the 2016 election and devise an interim solution until legitimately elected office holders can be restored. It is simply too dangerous to allow Putin to continue making plans on the building blocks of “Republican” self interest.

    88. And we need to IMPEACH as soon as possible for national security, and try to repair the damage and avoid catastrophe, which becomes worse and more likely the longer we delay.

    89. Trump is so obviously guilty of election fraud and bribery that the Republicans need to impeach, and then sit out an election to regroup as a party, in penance for the sins that allowed this disaster to occur.

    90. Trump then tried to say the same thing he said about Russian interference when he betrayed that he had been told the means would be “undetectable:” “Anyone might have done it,” like some “400 lb man!”

    91. “No effect on the election” is the new thing being repeated, because we do not want to face the opposite, which is true. Putin intended to do enough to turn the election while avoiding unnecessary risk, and did it because the internet is new.

    92. Barack: “We have a better story to tell…”
