No group, protestors or civilians, have been anywhere close to as violent and sadistic as the police have been tonight.

Today I presented the Governor’s Medal of Courage to Jack Wilson. He’s the hero who risked his life to save the lives of others by stopping a gunman in a deadly shooting at a church near Fort Worth. It’s the highest award given to civilians in Texas. #txlege 

Our country & civilians are vulnerable today because @BarackObama  did not believe in national missile defense. Let’s never forget that.

Trump mobilizing armed forces against our own citizens and then carefully mentioning “2nd amendment rights” which he knows will encourage civilians to turn arms on one another other. Lacking any integrity or empathy. This is out of control.

The moment we all feared is likely upon us. An unstable President in way over his head, panicking, with all his experienced advisers having quit, and only the sycophantic amateurs remaining. Assassinating foreign leaders, announcing plans to bomb civilians. A nightmare.

Why did he yell out the part about "YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS"? The point of the speech was for the president to announce that he would deploy "heavily armed" soldiers inside the US. Then he urgently shouted out the part reminding people that Americancivilians can be armed?

Russia, Syria, and Iran are killing, or on their way to killing, thousands of innocent civilians in Idlib Province. Don’t do it! Turkey is working hard to stop this carnage.

Hearing word that Russia, Syria and, to a lesser extent, Iran, are bombing the hell out of Idlib Province in Syria, and indiscriminately killing many innocent civilians. The World is watching this butchery. What is the purpose, what will it get you? STOP!

The killing and wounding by Israeli forces of civilians demonstrating for Palestinian rights in Gaza is appalling. The UK Government must make its voice heard on the urgency of a genuine settlement for peace and justice.

U.S. bombs. U.S. targeting. U.S. mid air support. And we just bombed a SCHOOL BUS. The Saudi/UAE/U.S. bombing campaign is getting more reckless, killing more civilians, and strengthening terrorists inside Yemen. We need to end this - NOW.
