1. A tale of 2 #COVID19 case maps:

Left: Shows total cases (bigger circles, more cases) arcgis.com/apps/opsdashbo…

Right: Shows cases per 10,000 residents. Much easier to see very concerning #rural outbreaks in ID, LA, CO, ID
geodacenter.github.io/covid/map.html#

thread
2. Focusing on #COVID19 cases per 10,000 people helps identify locations that are likely going to exceed local hospital capabilities very quickly. See rank list here. Blaine, ID (tourist ski area) has the highest infection rate in the country

3. Many hospitals in #rural areas have very small ICUs if they have ICUs at all and limited capacity. See this thread from a small community hospital in #Louisiana overwhelmed by #COVID19

1-A lot of friends have asked me what they should be supporting w/ 💵& ⏰. Even if you have a favorite candidate or 2, for every $ you give to them, you should also give $1 to an org working to build the long-term infrastructure that will ensure no more Trumps for the long haul
2- these are orgs that register ppl of color & youth to expand the electorate in places like Texas & Florida. They are orgs that organize with communities often overlooked, to build power & recruit candidates so our bench is more representive of the party we SAY we want to be
3- Going to slowly add to the list of orgs & local candidates on this thread. Encourage others to tag in the ones I end up inevitably leaving out. I’ll start with state-based long term organizing. There are SO MANY good ones.

Voter suppression and election mismanagement are alive and well in #Alabama. Check out our new report released today detailing how Alabama laws and policies create and perpetuate obstacles to the ballot box.

#AlabamaVotes #VotingRights #All67

splcenter.org/20200203/alive…
Despite #Alabama being at the epicenter of the #VotingRights movement of the 1960s, the state remains one of the most difficult places in our nation for an eligible voter to register and successfully cast a ballot. #AlabamaVotes splcenter.org/20200203/alive…
Since #SCOTUS gutted #Section5 of the #VotingRightsAct, #Alabama and localities have made it harder to vote by requiring photo ID to vote, closing polling places in predominantly Black counties and purging hundreds of thousands of people from voter rolls. splcenter.org/20200203/alive…

In 2015 #Birmingham created a city minimum wage of $10.10 an hour after the state refused to create a minimum wage higher than the federal $7.25 an hour wage. Days later, the state passed a new law voiding any attempt by cities in #Alabama to raise the #minimumwage.
We submitted an amicus brief supporting a lawsuit filed on behalf of two Black worker making less than $10.10 an hour in Birmingham. Today an appellate court panel ruled to dismiss the case.
“We are disappointed that the appellate court chose to dismiss this case on a technical issue. This involved a decision made by a majority black city being overruled by the majority white legislature.” – SPLC’s Samuel Brooke

My sister-in-law - OB/GYN physician - just told me and my parents - retired medical doctors - about this and parents asked “Don’t they understand science?”
This is a procedure that does not exist in medical science. This is dangerous and willful ignorance theguardian.com/us-news/2019/n…
This is misogyny. This is barbarism. If you’ve ever wondered how far these misogynist shits will go to control women’s bodies: they will go even further than you’ve imagined. FUCK THE PATRIARCHY.
Remember this when you read about women in El Salvador imprisoned after miscarriage and when you read the constant news articles about misogynist horrors subjected onto women in Afghanistan. The white men who rule the USA are happily competing in the Patriarchy Olympics.

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

Holy secret programs Batman!

Just realized my Dad worked on HAARP. Growing up, he was always on long trips to Fairbanks, AK.

He briefly described his work ... then joked he'd have to kill me bc it was classified.

Is there a HAARP facility in Alabama?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Freq…
Three transmitter sites, including Jordan Lake, AL.

👀👀👀

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Force…
I don't believe we steered Dorian to decimate the Bahamas, underground bases or not. More precise weapons available.

Much more plausible HAARP technology was able to hold Dorian offshore, rather than steering its path.

I hate to be the buzzkill, but endless cycle of @realDonaldTrump #Alabama coverage is another waste of everyone’s time. The courts are still getting packed with his judges. Environmental regulations are still being rolled back. Refugee children are still dying...
Trade wars rage on. A woman’s right to choose is being legislated out of existence. Russia’s foreign policy and economic agendas are still being propped up. There’s no 25th Amendment coming to save us. No impeachment (as of yet).
Black Americans are still suffering from systemic racism. Law enforcement culture is still violent and criminal. Hate crimes are rising exponentially. Assault rifles are still not banned. Young white men are still committing mass shootings.

1. Trump's obsession with his #Alabama gaff is defensive. He's trying to disprove he's suffering from dementia. If he just stopped tweeting he could cover it better. My uncle, who told me he did Reagan's PDB, made some comments to me in his 80's that in later years made sense.
2. Reagan was able to cover he had Alzheimer's. But President Reagan didn't rage Tweet 120 times over a holiday weekend. Trump will continue to try to cover his decline, while he and his kids rob the treasury blind.

I won't be surprised if he drops out.
3. If he can't draw crowds the primary campaign will be torture for him. He's not well. And he may be grooming Pence to feed his family's need for cash and a promise to pardon him. I thought he'd bail before the tax files were exposed. Once he is shown to be a business failure

Interesting thought here: according to our data, the higher ranked team has won roughly 72% of the time over the last decade in the #SEC. That's down from 80% in a study about 5 years ago.

Since expansion (2012) each team has played 56 conference games, and only 5 are above 500.
That's 392 games over 7 seasons, meaning roughly 110 times a lesser ranked team defeated a "more talented" opponent.

Obviously all 5 of Bama's losses are to "less talented" teams, bc they're a top 2 recruiter. The next highest talent recruiter is #UGA, who has lost just 15 times
In the last 7 seasons. Of those 15, every loss except once to #Alabama is a loss to a "less talented" team. So right away, 17% of the "upset losses" are held by the top two recruiters in SEC, bc nearly everyone they play is "less talented" than they are any given Saturday

People blaming @realDonaldTrump for #AlabamaAbortionBan ,
Alabama's new bill banning #abortionists is how laws are made.
#TRUMP has nothing to do with state creating law.
Creating a law ALWAYS goes through the same process.

Sad how ppl are fighting to kill babies
#QAnon
2.
#AlabamaAbortionBill has zero to do with @POTUS
Why are ppl blaming @realDonaldTrump ?
The #President swears an OATH to up carry out the laws.

He could make an executive order to overturn #Alabama new abortion law, but still gets sent to Senate to be approved by 2/3 vote
#Alabama #abortion ban goes much further than #WomansRightsAreHumanRights because although YES a womans body is her own right to do whatever, I don't care.
But,
Abortion is killing another humans right to EVERYTHING.
+ What rights do men get in protecting an baby he also made?

We are going to have a frank talk about women’s rights, boycotts and big tents. The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of Democrats support Roe v Wade and the autonomy and liberty of patents to choose the size and timing of their families. We must #StopTheBans. 1/
People are mobilizing on Tuesday May 21 to rally support for women’s rights and patients’ reproductive justice. (yes, trans and non-binary people can get pregnant too - be inclusive!) We must show support for patients and doctors criminalized under these extreme laws. Sign up! 2/
Sadly, one of our rallies must be in #Louisiana where a Democratic Governor pledged to sign a bill banning abortion rights even in the case of rape and incest. It’s awful and people should ask @LouisianaGov to give patients the same choice his wife had! 3/ cbsnews.com/news/democrati…

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

As a longtime upper west sider, I'm considering a run to #PrimaryNadler

DONE with Dem leaders refusing to confront the GOP's assault on our democracy.

Refusing to #impeach is normalizing Trump and his rightwing extremist cohorts.

If #Alabama isn't a wake up call, what is?
Wow, so many encouraging comments. I appreciate you all!
I fully appreciate that there's a good faith difference between those of us who think the Democratic Party needs a leadership overhaul (something I've talked about since my Iraq war protest days) and those who fully trust Dem leaders. But maintaining the status quo isn't working.
