Our failure to deal with the gun culture leads inevitably from reasonablish preparedness drills to urban terrorism cosplay in which teachers are huddled into rooms for mock executions with pellet guns. https://twitter.com/istamembers/status/1108461641400807424

2/ In most of these cases it is also HIGHLY likely the suits are being funded by pro-Trump donors. Again, in most cases, at least under current law, the suits have very very low chance of success. So the lawyer want to be paid. Most of the suers don't have the requisite cash.
This is a major and still ignored story. Numerous Trump media figures and pols are mounting ruinous libel and defamation suits that are ridiculous on their face as to the law but meant to impose a shattering price in legal fees for any kind of aggressive coverage or satire. https://twitter.com/Susan_Hennessey/status/1107820007663251458

Even though offshoot projects are wonderous and only for the good. Doing at length interviews with authors. Wow. CSPAN is militantly substantive and enriching.
So true. I once had the privilege of being interviewed by Lamb, just as dignified and generous and modest as you would glean from watching him on TV. CSPAN is one of the few, unmitigated pluses in the modern media world. Purest addition to the civil-political media world. https://twitter.com/costareports/status/1107667807444107264

3/ One thing that is clear on a close read is the different audiences addressed. She's careful to state that her view is at least nominally consensus US foreign policy (two states, etc.) and also consensus of the Israeli security establishment.

2/ it’s a very carefully considered and worded take.
This piece by Rep Omar covers various topics. But the portion on Israel-Palestine is a quite conventional and strong statement of the center-left two state approach. It’s one I support and I’d say a great number of American Jews do as well. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ilhan-omar-we-must-apply-our-universal-values-to-all-nations-only-then-will-we-achieve-peace/2019/03/17/0e2d66fc-4757-11e9-aaf8-4512a6fe3439_story.html
