Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

#ornithology
Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors

Trump may name #KrisKobach as Immigration Czar. Their real agenda: 2020 vote suppression. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…
It’s an especially cute move by Trump, as this newly crafted position, unlike an appointment to other cabinet level posts, will not require Senate approval, not even a hearing. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…
I’ve been investigating #KKKobach for six years. He's the guy who drafted Arizona’s notorious “SB 1070” law which the ACLU dubbed the, “Driving While Brown law” – found unconstitutional by Federal Courts. latimes.com/nation/la-na-a…

Here we go again with attempts to control women's health choices. This time it's Georgia where the legislature is taking up HB 481 which outlaws abortions once a doctor detects a heartbeat in the womb — usually 6 weeks into pregnancy & before most women know they are pregnant.
This is effectively a state-wide abortion ban, and they know it would be unpopular so they are rushing it through. Maybe they won't respond to the idea that this is cruel and discriminatory, but also that #HB481isBadForBusiness.

Georgia is home to a lot of film work, for now.
If you’re a #Georgia resident pls call
Gov. Kemp 404-656-1776
Speaker Ralston 404-656-5020
Metro ATL Chamber (404)880-9000
Urge them to stop this terrifying bill.

Brian Kemp could sign #HB481 in the next 24 hours effectively banning abortion in the state of #Georgia. This bill makes women who seek abortion criminals facing jail time. Women could be investigated by the police for miscarriages. Watch Sen. Jen Jordan: ajc.com/blog/politics/…
Women could be imprisoned for the use of drugs--even legal, prescribed drugs--while pregnant. This bill is moving while bills to address maternal mortality, rural access to pre-natal care and more languish. The hypocrisy goes on and on and at times leaves me speechless. #HB481
This bill moves while bills to address record high maternal mortality and rural access to pre-natal care languish. Make no mistake, this bill will further criminalize and endanger women of color, low-income, and rural women mostly. Our support is mandated right now 100%. #HB481

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

Ho ho ho! Now that #BrianKemp is no longer #Georgia's Secretary of State, his office has informed the Palast Investigative Fund attorneys that they are throwing in the towel in the Palast & Butler v. Kemp suit we filed in Atlanta Federal Court in October. gregpalast.com/look-what-sant…
This opens up the remainder of #BrianKemp’s infamous, racially-poisonous voter purge files. Specifically, #Georgia will produce the hidden #Crosscheck purge files given to Kemp by #KrisKobach of Kansas — files Kemp’s flunkies told us had been “lost.” gregpalast.com/our-lawsuit-ag…
This data, which we will be analyzing is, as one of #StaceyAbrams attorney told me, “a gold mine” which can be critical in the law suit brought by her organization #FairFightGeorgia and in the fight to beat back New #JimCrow vote suppression. gregpalast.com/stacey-abrams-…

People said, 'Oh, I'm so excited about changing administration, but I’m not going to vote for #StaceyAbrams running mate?!?’ That’s like voting for President, and not voting for Vice President. [See drop off rate from Governor to Lt Governor and how it recovers down the ticket.]

#TuesdayThoughts: I wasn't able to be as productive as I wanted to be this year given an (often-ass-kicking) autoimmune disorder, but here's a thread of a few highlights.

As always, I remain so grateful to you all for your continued support.❤️
First, I am very proud of co-editing, with @m_hild, Reconsidering Southern Labor History: Race, Class, and Power. We had perceptive, brilliant scholars contributing essays on a wide variety of topics. Look for the paperback release in 2019!

Second, was absolutely honored to be asked to write a piece commemorating the life and legacy of #MartinLutherKing #MLK for the National Civil Rights Museum. I chose to write about #poverty and the #PoorPeoplesCampaign:

The failure of #Georgia to elect a Democrat Secretary of State after the the fraud & widespread #votersuppression of @BrianKempGA & Republicans is a travesty.

But the Dems share some blame. All Southern states should learn from this:

1) Run younger, charismatic candidates...
Who maintain an active social media presence. This is a fantastic way to campaign with limited resources. Branding matters. So do looks. So do numbers of followers.

2) actually make a concerted effort to campaign!!! The D-candidate here was virtually unknown - no TV ads, nothing
3) I do feel like more well-known GA Dems, from Abrams to Jason Carter to John Ossoff, dropped the ball here. There was no big push to get voters out over the last week, certainly nothing state-organized.

4) candidates for other state-executive branch offices shd be stumping

#Thread on #Georgia's runoff for the Public Service Commission — one of those offices you don't think much about. salon.com/2018/12/04/geo…
The Public Service Commission controls Georgia Power — a racketeering enterprise masquerading as an electric company. They are building the first nuclear power station in America in 40 years, which is years late and billions over budget. #Georgia #GeorgiaRunoffElection
#StacyAbrams had the guts to say Georgians shouldn’t pay for this radioactive boondoggle. Dem Lindy Miller sided with Abrams against this meltdown in the making. She’s running against the GOP incumbent who’s campaign is funded by #Georgia power and its parent Southern Company.

Today there are two absolutely vital elections in #Georgia. The runoff for Secretary of State and the runoff for the public service commission, one of those offices you don't think much about. Both of them are incredibly important salon.com/2018/12/04/geo…
Whoever controls the Secretary of State's office, controls who gets to vote, how you get to vote, whose ballots get counted, etc., which #BrianKemp used to great effect against #StaceyAbrams to make himself #Georgia's governor. gregpalast.com/heres-how-bria…
What #BrianKemp and the GOP have been doing is blocking registrants who found that they were wrongly purged so that they can't vote today in the runoff. Everyone who was shafted out of their vote on Nov. 6 will be shafted out of their vote again today. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
