We have made Russia out to be far more capable than it actually is - sloppiness and incompetence is a regular feature of Moscow’s intel operations: Skripal, OPCW, WADA, NotPetya. It’s a weak power using anything it can to hang on to influence

🇧🇷 NEW FROM ME: In an election that saw a far-right populist rise to power, two black trans women made history. The São Paulo state legislators-elect said Bolsonaro’s rhetoric is nothing new. They’re ready to fight.

A very important story by on how American white supremacists are traveling to Ukraine to form alliances with Azov, an ultranationalist group with growing influence there.

the BdB admin seems to have had virtually no rollout strategy on Amazon deal & to have been caught off-guard by the amount of blowback

Confusing to me. She’s pro-life but wants to sit front row for a public hanging? I guess pro-life ends when a baby is born. Because anyone joking about lynching is not pro-life.

From the bottom of my heart: Thank you. I am so proud of the movement we built. Together, we redefined the politics of possible in the Deep South – but our fight is far from over.

Based on conversations with black reporters who work(ed) at major newsrooms, I’ve turned down jobs or offers to apply for jobs there because of their negative experiences. Even with the possibility of making much more money.

"You don't look poor" is coded language for "poor people don't deserve anything good because they're poor."

This may very likely be a smoke screen for Putin to claim he’s tackling corruption but, if true, I wish America had this problem.

This occurred at Kyiv's Vydubychi bus station. And a Ukrainian court just last week ordered charges dropped against the neo-nazi C14 group's leader, Serhiy Mazur, who's involved here. Authorities allow them to operate with impunity. They've terrorized Roma & other minorities.

FYI — Robert Mueller did not work for Obama for 8 years. He ran the FBI under George W Bush for nearly 8 years. He remained FBI Director under Obama for 4 years, confirmed to extend his 10-year term by a Senate vote of 100-0.

Everyone is focused on the race, but this is gonna be key. Dems desperately want a pickup. This will determine who controls the election. "Georgia's Secretary of State race will go to a runoff on Dec. 4" via

Even if this doesn’t trigger a recount or a runoff, it’s essential that every vote is counted. Stacey Abrams is doing a public service and should be applauded for it.

I have my own personal stories about far right nationalism in Ukraine, but that story I linked to is a must read. Walking around Kyiv, you do see more of those white nationalists. Very violent folks. In 2008, they were worse and I thought they were dying down in influence. Wrong.

I can personally tell you how Azov members have improved their English. Near the McDonalds on the Maidan, I was verbally abused in December of 2017 by men claiming to be members of Azov. “Get out of my country, you fucking nigger.” Fine diplomacy.
