$10B to FUND the police! 🚨👮🏻‍♀️

The investment includes $6.5 billion “in State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund investments over the past year.” 💵

That figure includes over $2 billion to aide police / reduce crime, and $1 billion to help reduce domestic violence…

🪡 1/7
This may be one of the few examples where the Biden Admin has actually done something good… or is it? 🤓💡

The move certainly keeps with his intention to “FUND the police,” which was a theme in his #SOTU address this year… but where?

🪡 2/7 Image
Strangely, this move is NOT something seen as a positive by the Left bc, as we know, they are keen to DEFUND the police. 📉⚠️

Conservatives believe this measure is too-little-too-late as crime rates have been SURGING since the beginning of 2021…

"Those Funny Italians"

Un 🧵 sulle letture deliranti, in #Italia, sugli #InteressiAmericani rispetto all'aggressione militare russa in #Ucraina

Visto da #DC, questo dibattito è veramente lunare. Perché? Questa Amministrazione ha un focus chiaro: la #Cina.
Questo focus porta questa amministrazione a convergere con le priorità degli altri pezzi istituzionali (Congresso, Dipartimento di Stato, Pentagono, etc) del complesso mosaico che orienta la politica estera americana
Tale convergenza, con #Trump, non c'era: Trump era (giustamente) considerato erratico, "transactional" (nell'accezione negativa del termine), "short-sighted" (con buona pace dei cantori italiani che lo vedeva come un maestro di strategia)

Can somebody authenticate if this is legit?

Video allegedly filmed by the shooter uploaded online?

I can’t tell if this is fake or not, honestly.
From OP
How would they find this video? How would it make it online so fast? How do you film a gun from that perspective? It seems like a videogame to me, but it also looks real; and I’m an idiot with this stuff lol…

Julian Assange cannot and will not get a fair trial at the Eastern District Court of VA. It's impossible, the "deck is stacked". It's up to us to get in the streets. @JohnKiriakou

My first #dissertation chapter has been published! The paper focuses on #predation of #urban #wildlife by #cats with recommendations for collaborative data-driven management strategies. Main points are summarized in this #infographic, but more info and paper link in this thread!
We spent 3 years surveying #WashingtonDC for #cats using #trailcams. Whenever we saw an image of a cat carrying prey, we noted the species and location, and added it to our predation database.
So what influences predation rates by #urban #feral cats? We found 2 driving factors: access to cat food and distance to forest edge. Why would cat food increase predation? Supplemental food allows cats to occur at greater densities, amplifying population-level predation!

“Today…we want to lift up whistleblowers.
We want to lift up our political prisoners
because they have been criminalized by a criminal government…by a government that doesn’t respect human rights.” @nofearcoalition
“Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier, Julian Assange
they all said ‘NO!’
You can keep your money because I am choosing my conscience...choosing…that I am a human being not a cog in the capitalist system. And for that they are being tortured”

The @whca board met in emergency session this evening and “unanimously approved a motion to temporarily return” the @WhiteHouse briefing room to 14 seats due to the #OmicronVariant surge.
Temporary @WhiteHouse briefing room seating chart, effective Monday, as coordinated by @whca.
“Importantly, standing in the aisle is not welcome at this time, to allow a limited number of pooling still photographers to be socially distanced,” @whca President @stevenportnoy informs members.

Non-Black folks in #DC, if you’re making New Years resolutions add making a commitment to learn about and share widely the DC outside of the existence of monuments (many built by enslaved Africans), the White House, and Congress.

If you’re in the DC area and see Penske, UHaul, or similar trucks that aren’t filled with freight, take out your camera and start filming. That’s how the Patriot Front typically gets in and out of the city. They’re likely staying at a private residence in nearby rural/suburbs.
Moving trucks will be noticeable because they’ll be staged together or traveling in a convoy. The trucks, if moving, are likely to have dozens of men inside at the moment. If @DCPoliceDept pulls them over — unmask to identify members of the nation’s most active hate group.
If you live in #DC, #Maryland or #Virginia, you should be calling on your governor to put state troopers on alert, and immediately begin investigations to find out where the Patriot Front is traveling to and from. This hate group’s objective is genocide. Members live near you.

I'm seeing these type of posts all over my comics social media,

Nerds that aren't particularly politically engaged & are turbo nerds are feeling very frustrated with the BIG 2 these days
#comics #dccomics #Superman #JonKent @BoundingComics @BleedingFool #mcu #marvel Image
most of these collectors aren't comicsgate fans,
these are hardcore comic book fans that couldn't care less about the news of the day,

That DC is doing the impossible, finding a way to alienate them, is down-right impressive
Factor is totally ignored,
These guys are the ones buying the majority of books,

keeping the flame alive🔥

DC & Marvel are managing to scare them away💨

Zoning rules have a much larger impact than most people realize. Much of this is driven at the local level, meaning that your local elections and community meetings are incredibly important, directly shaping the world you live in.…
Furthermore, as this article points out, those local decisions directly impact whether you can even afford to live in that world. #NIMBYism is an incredibly expensive luxury we as a society cannot afford.
But to those #NIMBY people I say this: what happens when the people you depend upon for basic services can no longer afford to live anywhere near where you expect to receive those same services? Do you expect them to drive an hour each way? Two? Where does it stop?
