There's no news of #Modi's visit to the #US when you turn on #CNN on TV in India.

So I looked up #NBC online.

I had to scroll past 11 screens to find any news of Modi's visit.

#XiJinping, on the other hand, was on the first screen.

These are the first six screens.

Why are our school board members sinking time and resources into a bill that will harm our students? Why aren’t they focused on improving Conway schools? Yellow background with a photo of board members Linda Hargis

#SB43 was just introduced in #Arkansas. It redefines who is considered a #dragperformer regardless of age, with the purpose of sexualizing and criminalizing anyone who exhibits a gender different than that assigned at birth. (1/3)
Under #SB43 in #Arkansas If you sing, lip-sync, dance or perform in front of 2 or more people in public property while wearing clothes, make up or other accessories that don't match your gender assigned at birth you will be considered a drag performer.
#SB43 is framed as an attack against #dragperformers, BUT it actually seeks to criminalize the very existence of Trans people by labeling our gender expression and gender affirming gear as “drag”.

1) Trump won't be able to terminate the US Constitution but a Republican-led effort to rewrite it continues… Trump's "allies are busy pushing an unprecedented rewrite of the foundational document that would fundamentally alter Americans' daily lives."
2) "In 2022, a group with ties to Trump's orbit was able to get four more states to join its efforts."

"@CommonCause is trying both to thwart any new convention pushes alongside repealing old resolutions calling a convention."… Support them!

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%
Easy Democratic pick-up of a safe new African American seat.… ImageImageImage

Accept the results. I wish the GOP had done better, they didn't. Fin.... My own home state of #Arkansas did its duty. Both @JohnBoozman and @RepFrenchHill won re-election by crushing double digit margins so those votes for #Ukraine are safe. They also show that voting for
victims of the #GenocideOfUkrainians is a safe play in D.C. Next up is @SenTomCotton but his vote is safe as well. He really doesn't like Russia lol. To my fellow Americans, the 24 Presidential season has officially started, but can we please dial down the rhetoric? the country
is split almost 50/50 so not all Lefties are evil and not all Rightwingers are fascists, not even close to a plurality in either party. Don't believe the competing media narratives that the other side is coming to get you. At least part of those narratives is influenced by Russia

How many of you have seen Putin, his cronies, trolls or useful idiots talking about a multi-polar world where every nation is free to chart its own course free from western domination? Its all hogwash, that is not what he wants. He wants a unipolar world where Russia sits at the
top free to do as it will to anyone, imposing its will, charting their course for them, wiping them out if they resist. There is no part of Russia's foreign policy that says multi-polar via its actions. Putin's only goals have been rebuilding the Russian Empire and making sure he
sat at its head. The true multi-polar world is the one we are witnessing rally to Ukraine. Severla big players like India and China have taking an almost malignant disinterest. Others like Germany and Turkey are trying to play towards the middle to varying degrees. The Votes in

I woke up to more news about Russian missile strikes on civilian targets in Ukraine. This of course is the norm but given that Russia has announced its intent to blockade world food supplies again, the never-ending energy blackmail and the hubris in calling the strike on the
#BlackSeaFleet a terror attack its obvious that Russia really thinks she can cuck the world. Putin is running around talking peaceful co-existence of religions and cultures out of one side of his mouth and oppressing Ukraine and killing Ukrainians out of another. The UN has
to be worthless, with Russia holding two vetoes it is never going to get off its ass and defend the right of self determination for all nations and it will not oppose the #GenocideOfUkrainians unleashed by #russiaisateroriststate. Its just not going to happen. If NATO doesn't

The CPC walked back its letter, seems House Dem Leadership and maybe rank and file membership was able to bring down the hammer. This is obviously sub-optimal for Russia but Kleptograd will still play it up. We had our own version of it on @MriyaReport last night. An audience
speaker came up and tried to do a "thought" experiment. Here's the thing though, thought experiments are always controlled exercises in leading someone to a pre-determined end goal. I use them in my writings, they are NOT open ended, "lets see what comes out of this" exercises.
Both the CPC letter and the "thought experiment" were designed to create the idea that "western diplomacy" was a viable option and had a viable even supreme role to play in ending the #Russianinvasionofukraine. Both of those are sitting on a foundation of neo-colonialist thought

When replying to the Kleptogradians I think its important to stay on message. Kleptograd is engaged in a war of #genocidal colonial #imperialism. I don't go down rabbit holes with them when they try and turn livestock check stations and pathology clinics with military biolabs.
I don't really engage at all with any of the various and ever changing whatabouts they throw around. They already know it's all bullshit and that is the point. They want the debate and use it as an opportunity to sow confusion. It also fits with their world view that those who
answer questions are weak. A worldview that if you think about it perfectly serves the cabal of corruptiods at the top. No one dares question the graft, corruption and incompetence and meekly accept the shit sandwiches fed to them. The more outlandishly served up the more they

How many rings does the Russian circus have? I am used to Russia's various versions of Lord Haw-Haw and Axis Sally spouting all sorts of nonsense but every now and then they write something that really takes the cake. In this most recent display of supreme irony the supreme
HEAD OF RUSSIA said this, " No side that’s confident in its prospects of military and soft power success would ever deign to attack civilians, especially refugees, not to mention those that it claims are its own people on its own land.
This part of an article where he claims that shelling a bridge used for military purposes is a war crime. No, Andy, it is not, though Russia putting civilians on it as human shields definitely is. Although I am not a lawywr, let alone one versed in the LOAC and IHL I think I know

Russia and her supporters are a clown show! I wake up to a Russian TV host claiming Ukraine has secreted away a thermo-nuclear bomb to blow itself up with and blame Russians. Never mind that boosted fission and fusion bombs all need tritium with its very short (post Cold War)
half life that can be typed to the reactor that produced it. Then as I scroll down my twitter feed I see the whataboutisms flowing like a blown dam. We have all the main players working off the same cue card. #NAFO members said bad things and the @georgian_legion did bad things.
did they rape babies, blow up theaters, kidnap kids, destroy critical heating and electrical infrastructure.... invade a sovereign state? No? Then it's all BS misdirection.

I get back from the woods and not much has changed. There was some apparently rather forceful rejection of forced conscription. One commander got fragged in one instance and in another some dragooned Central Asians said, "Russian Army Go Fuck Yourself" spelled out in 7.62 font.
The Ukrainian high commander has imposed a blackout over Kherson so something but what? Fingers crossed it makes the Kharkiv offensive gains look small. I really want that city liberated because of its political importance to Putin. Though apparently one pressing question was

Now into a second day of Russian strikes designed to cripple Ukraine's civilian population heading into winter. This is not revenge for the Kerch Strait bridge, this is state sponsored terrorism by a dictator who has failed to fill the shoes of his heroes like Hitler and Peter
The Great. He has now moved from Ukraine will be part of the Russian Empire again to if I can't have it no one can. He seeks to de-energize the entire country and also make the countries soviet era district heating system using centralized thermal plants inoperable. Its a slow
attempted murder attempt to kill as many people and depopulate a city much as a nuke would but without the mushroom clouds and fall out... Well there will be fall out he is trying to force Ukraine to move enmass. We are now watching one of the most important races in human

Part 2: Near and Longer Term Ukrainian Armor needs. To start some caveats. 1. I don't know the average bridge loading of Ukrainian bridges, 2. how many (if any) class 70 AVLB and bailey bridges they have 3. the maximum width of track vehicles on Ukranian trains. 4. Ukraine
uses the 4 tank platoon doctrinally. 5. Ukraine may have lost as many as half its pre-war tank fleet of mostly T-64BV tanks. 6. The main combat formation is the brigade. With all that said let's dig in. I think its obvious that I think that the big western MBT's are superior for
a number of reasons from crew efficiency, to sensing and FCS but also gun power. One of the big oft overlooked draw backs of the T series tanks is two piece ammo. This limits the overall L/D ratio of the sabots and this impacts performance. NATO APFSDS penetrators extend down

Look, I get why @elonmusk stepped in it and why he decided to follow @Pontifex onto the road to appeasement. We live in scary times and human nature is to find some place to hole up when danger looms, physically, mentally, spiritually we look for a way to escape the Angel of
Death's gimlet eye. I've got kids and grandkids too so I get the fear of nuclear war. Reports like this raises all sorts of hairs on the back of my neck. I don't know if the photo was a real, "hey looky here" indicating #Putin is serious about #nuclear
