@cliffelam oh no just democrat / conservative - many don’t want a fight with the neighbours or offend their family etc. - few air opinions @cliffelam agree at the same time it's so divisive that I have many American Friends who don't want to disrespect neighbours so stay silent @cliffelam oh tx @davidfrum people who wouldn't chant "build the wall" but still think supporting him Is a good idea - let's dig into their minds @davidfrum there is another group of voters who are respectful church going community members who would never talk like and still support @davidfrum on your article about trump backers - it's only the fringe I think that's represented there - trump makes them acceptable @znakit great question - article explains exactly why not a single Trump voter will be turned & the issues the Dems don't talk about : @CrazyinRussia that's in LondonWeekend long read : why do people like Trump ? rares de l'accouplement d'une voiture de connard et d'un rail de sécurité. #ChasséCroisé

Retweeted by Fred Destin.@realdonaldtrump - can we see the letter you claim you got from the NFL that they say they never sent ? #compulsive you look at Chris Christie, he was just standing there. He had nothing to say. Maybe he wasn't allowed to:

Retweeted by Fred Destin @AntoniolaReis nice one ! Funny if wasn't so sad @carlbildt you seriously want to be associated with this ? @AntoniolaReis yeah well this might well be your statistical outlier ;-) @jaybur73 I don't think his tax returns will make any difference to be honest. @AntoniolaReis oh I'm not pro Hillary. Just a student of history trying to link dots to understand the line. And learning.Had to file for bankruptcy more times than anyone else in the last 30 years - because sharkish banks #TrumpSacrifices @cliffelam hahaha ;-) ok !!Well worth re-reading this 2011 article about the hijacking of American democracy. Defeat comes from within.[Updated] : Why People Love @realDonaldTrump … and how to take him down : @swombat @mikebutcher and expose trump on stuff people care about like overseas factories etc (not his taxes!!)MUST READ: Europe risks repeating past mistakes on Islam #terrorism
Retweeted by Fred Destin @cliffelam Did not know that. Clearly need to dig into the topic a bit more. So you feel that system works well?.@MoreUnitedUK plans to crowdfund any MP, from any party, who agrees with its progressive principles #MoreUnited
Retweeted by Fred Destin @swombat @mikebutcher credible hard hitting program that puts the common people first and is not trumps @alektasev for sure but it's a long post and that really wasn't my purpose with this one @swombat @mikebutcher blaming Mike ;-) !! Would have been one long post !! @mikebutcher txExcellent post: “Why do people like Trump? And how we can take him down” by @fdestin
Retweeted by Fred Destin @cliffelam i guess I meant statistical gerrymandering which is imo gaming that system @cliffelam I really don't like Hillary. But I don't think I could ever vote for someone with a clear pathology :-)[New post] : Trying to understand the seemingly absurd - Why do People Like Trump ? motivational speech you're going to hear all year. From the gut. Amazing. hard to tell at this stage whether Erdogan's democracy could be called that at all @carlbildt Letter denouncing Trump from *121* GOP National Security Leaders
Retweeted by Fred DestinThere are two kinds of presidential campaigns in the United States. Those who've been hacked, and those who don't know they've been hacked.

Retweeted by Fred DestinNow THIS IS back to the future !!! @bartjjj all good 😎No International funds ? Cc @pbotteri - @blablacar @algolia @doctolib Shift etc. @Amirmizroch my work is a harmonious and integral part of my life - it is a vocation and gives me a rich sense of purpose @rayhanresi oh yeah !! agreed !! he strikes fear in the hearts of the establishment 4 sure !! @RayhanRESI not sure what you mean - that video is pro trump - trying to explain the facts behind his appeal ?? @beachvetlbc and I don't think three tech firms working long term for homeland security collectively have any political bias @beachvetlbc I don't think you realise how sophisticated state APT attacks are. Literally hundreds of hackers targeting different tasks. @RayhanRESI this is interesting : and only this: “Radical Focus — the core skill of a startup CEO” by @fdestin
Retweeted by Fred Destin @beachvetlbc I'm not sure I understand your point here. They are analysing the hack that happened to them. @RayhanRESI oh I agree with you but I do believe some "smart" / not fearful / not angry people support trump and I'd like to know why @alektasev agreed but that is a different point.P'tain on vient de m'ajouter à une liste qui s'appelle fdestin. La classe @fdestin qu'il y ait une liste Twitter à ton nom
Retweeted by Fred DestinI remember another party pushing to attack a secular dictator and opening up a radical can of worms ? #1 job of the startup ceo is to make decisions with sparse data and focus the efforts of a small organisation -
@cliffelam nice one ! Check this out : @alektasev @StefanMolyneux thanks half way through the video and fascinating insightsYup. Making money in venture is freaking hard. to launch Notarize for Business! - Send & receive notarizations in minutes.
Retweeted by Fred Destin @tjparker ;-) either that or a large portion of the population are complete hypocritsTrying to grock Trump's appeal to smart people - can't find a single positive article in my usual sources (eg Medium: ZERO) - where do I go? @cliffelam of course, I agree ! but everyone had a bit of lightweight fun with it.
