📌#SENATE DEBATE RESUMES
Social Security (Administration) Amendment (Repeal of Cashless Debit Card and Other Measures) Bill 2022
Bit of an oops there. The no doc opt for people in the 4 original sites who have been forced CDC program out begins October 4th now.
Perin who? Again quoting Noel Pearson, who does not speak for ANYONE on the CDC, literally, anywhere. Noel is linked to the FRC region, and as ALP's amendments show, their concerns raised in Senate Inquiry have ALL been address. Perin is way behind the current reality.

The first mention of nose-ring (for nose piercing) is in Old Testament when Abhraham's servant gives his daughter-in-law 'Rebekah' a golden nose-ring ("Shanf" in Hebrew). This practice of gifting rings to brides continues even today.

Les photographes, Mstyslav Chernov et Evgeniy Maloletka, sont exposés à @Visapourlimage Evgeniy Maloletka vient de recevoir le prix Visa d’or News pour son travail à Marioupol.

@VA_GOP @PostOpinions @GovernorVA I called out that false narrative in a comment @WashPost did not print. Opinion wasn't written by @DonScott757, a really good guy, but by VA Dem Machine.#FactsMatter Please read this summary of the #Truth @vademocrats @PostOpinions @RTDOpinions @GlennKessler #FactcheckersTeam Image
@VA_GOP @PostOpinions @GovernorVA @WashPost @DonScott757 @vademocrats @RTDOpinions @GlennKessler Here's proof of the #Facts about the VA General Assembly Joint Legislative Accounting Committee JLAC Report that came out Nov 2021. Virginia's economy lagged nation & region. Under 2 yrs of 100% Dem control Virginia lost 9 manufacturing planst, even Aerospace! Analysis below Image
@VA_GOP @PostOpinions @GovernorVA @WashPost @DonScott757 @vademocrats @RTDOpinions @GlennKessler Losing out on aerospace manufacturing was the unkindest cut, since Virginia has @NASA_Langley & @NASA_Wallops Island launch facility. Plus @VTEngineering But Dem legislature & McAuliffe saying he'd sign repeal of Va RTW laws, was too big a risk to invest in capital in the ground

🧵 1/51

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

Source: covid.ourworldindata.org/data/owid-covi…
🧵 2/51

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

High power rifle is a loaded term and misinformation about the Highland Park mass shooting.

Read about this made-up term for a gun in #EmilyPosts here: emilypostnews.com/p/high-power-r…
There is no such thing as a “high power rifle.”

But when asked by a reporter what gun was used in the horrific mass murder in Highland Park, the sheriff’s spokesman answered, “Right now we’re saying it’s a high power rifle.” 

The liberal media reported this as fact.
Guns bought by Highland Park shooter, per sheriff spokesman :

1. KelTech sub 200 rifle chambered to fire pistol cartridges

2. Remington 700 rifle (didn’t give caliber)

3. Shotgun

4. Glock 43X handgun

NONE OF THESE ARE AR-15

I like you @GovRonDeSantis but this shows you're ill informed on America's founders. I'll inform you.
Florida offers new training for teachers that says it was a 'misconception' that 'the Founders desired strict separation of church and state': report msn.com/en-us/news/us/…
Virginia was 1st colony of what became the British Empire, named for Protestant English Queen Elizabeth I, preceded by her Catholic sister Mary Tudor, for whom Bloody Mary drink is named, who burned so many protestants who refused to convert back to Catholicism. @GovRonDeSantis
Religious freedom was our First Freedom, encoded in Jefferson's Va statute @GovRonDeSantis James Madison, principle author of the Constitution, viewed established state religion as a denial of the right to exercise his or her own freedom of conscience.

This newscast was on August 8, 2019.

But a little more than a year earlier when DeSantis was trying to win the Republican nomination it was a totally different story. 1/
Keep in mind DeSantis was trailing or tied generally before July 2018 in the Republican primary. Then he pushed ahead in July and never trailed. 2/
And what precipitated his move into the lead?

He made a very specific and public claim in April 2018 that he would have vetoed the red flag laws signed by Scott. Strongly implying he was opposed to them. 3/

Why not just tell people the truth that the policy the Trump administration put into effect resulted in poor profitability on imports of baby formula and high tariffs (17.5%). The USMCA did this and Republicans loved it.
1/
Additionally, the USMCA trade agreement made imports of any baby formula challenging for ANY importer. Trump’s policies “America First” put U.S. formula makers in charge. Until they had a bacteria scare and recall formula.
2/
Recalled formula, increased tariffs and Trump regulations made this happen. Supply chain issues, lack of imports available made this happen.

Where were you when the GOP jumped with joy with the policy? Did you complain then?
This was a failed Trump plan, like many of his.

Has the festival of racist dog whistles ended?
Mike Braun did you really REALLY ask about leaving interracial marriage up to the states?! Are they going to fill up cells with interracial couples? Are you f*cking nuts? What f*cking century are you f*cking living in?!
THIS is what I'm paying attention to. It's called a soul. Someone with a conscience. Someone not on the take. That's who I want. Image

1/5 How many lies can you pack into one article? First, Ty says that we argue that Lee was a "benevolent slave master." No, we argue he wasn't a slave master at all! Lee owned no slaves at the time of the war. Hence he wasn't good or bad: he simply owned no slaves. #FactsMatter
2/5 @IndyRecorder actually published an article blaming Lee for the death of U.S. soldiers. But Lee wouldn't have killed a single U.S. soldier that did not invade VA first. So why isn't Lincoln responsible? What law did Lee break? What law did VA break? The article doesn't say!
3/5 Was Lee a reluctant to join the Confederacy? Well, yes! Is it a myth? Nope. We just look at his own words. Strangely @IndyRecorder doesn't quote Lee at all! Mind if I do? Pre-war quotes, of course! No "mythology here."

1/25 🧵The joint budget meeting between Loudoun County School Board and Board of Supervisors was better than the Real Housewives at a dinner party.

If you missed it, there were some sparks flying between Supervisor Turner and Supervisor Kushner
2/25 after Kushner took Ziegler to task for his….well, for EVERYTHING.

At first, Zig clammed up after his dressing down by Kershner and declined his invitation to respond to him when given the opportunity.
3/25 But then, Turner swooped in to attack the “Trump loving Kershner” (said that or something similar), as Chair Randall tried to silence Turner with many WHOA-WHOA-WHOAS. It was to no avail, as Turner was determined to have his say while giving “the hand” to his Chair.

@MargaretHoover I'm a great fan of you & @JohnAvlon, but you should not buy the attack ads of losing Dem candidates. I'm a Democrat. Here are #facts on the ground in #Virginia CRT is sold as something it is not. #FactsMatter It is pernicious, destructive,toxic, and more. @Acosta
#CancelCulture attacks #Mathematics Opponents of CRT are NOT all right wing. The people who elected @GlennYoungkin were Biden voters, Asian parents, black parents who want better schools for their children. Asians are being hurt. Below: CA lowers standards

@MargaretHoover @JohnAvlon @Acosta @CondoleezzaRice articulates the issue best. But there is a disturbing expansion of a surveillance state. I don't see masks or vax as that, but BBB contained bank surveillance, #MerrickGarland actions described below, threadreaderapp.com/thread/1456648…

@StephenAtHome Sorry but YOU need to know what #CRT is really about. It is NOT teaching "real history" of race. Marxist in premise & praxis, it teaches whiteness is evil, makes white children stand up & confess "I am white, I am privileged, I am an oppressor" & blacks can't learn

Don’t be fooled by bad actors who use #disinformation to scare you. Fight the #fear with #facts.
#Thread
People have been spreading a false narrative that they are teaching #CRT to kids in school. In #reality CRT is a complicated theory created in law school. Way above the difficulty level of any k-12 curriculum.
#CRT does not teach anyone to be anti-#American. It tries to get a clear picture of how #racism effected our legal system.

A small group of MPs and other opponents of net zero are disseminating inaccurate and misleading information about energy. Here are some graphics to set the record straight. #factsmatter Green levies have not made UK electricity prices higher than everywhere else:
#factsmatter UK domestic gas prices have been lower than in many other countries:
#factsmatter The UK has been a net importer of natural gas since 2004 due to declines in production in the North Sea's mature hydrocarbon basin. UK now imports about half the natural gas it consumes:

Look at all these Covid Cases. "Hospitalizations surge".
@GOP are a party of assassins. Calling MAGA's 'killers' is a compliment to them, which is why we need to take bigger steps to put this group out of business before it's too late.
They do not relate to deaths and logic. 45 made Pence walk through a VA hospital without a mask and they let him. That is utter (udder if you're Nunes) madness.
If you don't believe in science as you're watching your relatives get buried, you are a MORON (Or an Eric Trump, same thing)

@8NEWS @CBS6 @NBC12 @myVPM The fictional film McAuliffe created "How the Monuments came down" needs to include Northam cutting the fiber optics cable with the insane dig. McA got that story pulled. Ruined his narrative, but the truth will come out. @patrickmwilson
To "historians" Brumfield, Eric Wilson & others so obsessed with their fictions they deny reality, I'll try to provide some #facts concerning statements from the die hards who cannot accept that the contents of the box ARE the correct, & that IS the right box @CBS6 #RVA
1. It was not in the ground- to protect from water damage is why. Placing it encased in concrete elevated in the pedastal kept it drier. 2. The "real" box was copper. Lead oxide is a copper color. Pb+2 PbO is this color, same as color on box found. Another myth @CBS6 @myVPM #RVA Image

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.” al.com/news/2021/12/a… Image

Just MAYBE if 'someone' took an interest in holding 45 accountable, he wouldn't be able to stump for crazy candidates. As there's no arrests, GOP voters think that Democrats are full of shit.
If ONE SINGLE MAGA thought "wow they are corrupt and that's not me", it could start a trend, but it just looks like we're setting our hair on fire for nothing.,
I can almost visualize their thinking..
"If Steve Bannon was as bad as they're saying he'd be in jail".. Well he IS and he's NOT.

1/25 Some have said McGirt is our most pressing challenge. The ruling offers challenges, no one can deny that, but . . . our **most** pressing challenge? If that’s the case, the Tribes ought to be proud of how they are rising to it. #tribalsovereignty #factsmatter #Oklahoma
2/25 At Chickasaw, we have partnered with some 70 other jurisdictions, and about 575 Tribal and non-Tribal officers are now empowered to enforce state, federal, and tribal law without regard to whether the offender or victim is Native.
3/25 As of Aug. 27 (i.e., 24 weeks out from the judicial reaffirmation of our reservation), our Lighthorse had already fielded nearly 20,811 dispatch calls and made 1,141 arrests.

Lies people tell about #Water
Part: 1

"We can find charlatans peddling #snakeoil in a wide variety of spheres, but there are quite a lot of lies that are told specifically about water. It's such a ubiquitous substance, everywhere around us, and inside of us,
and since we need it to survive,it's fertile grounds for #pseudoscience. What kinds of lies do people tell about water?There are many colorful examples we will cover,but this first part will focus on the main #conspiracy surrounding water & that is the fluoridation of tap water.
From government mind control to neurotoxic effects, there is no shortage of #misinformation associated with this incredible achievement of modern society, so let's run through the most common talking points and see what they're all about, shall we?
