EXPLOSIVE—We now learn Trump had tested positive for #COVID19 **3 days** before his first debate against Joe Biden, says former chief of staff Mark Meadows—positive test on Sept 26th, same day as this WH’s infamous superspreading SCOTUS nominating event:👇
theguardian.com/us-news/2021/d…
2) The list of infected that day at the WH were long…. But now Trump maybe could have been possibly the INDEX case?
3) Meadows says the positive test had been done with an old model kit. He told Trump the test would be repeated with “the Binax system, and that we were hoping the first test was a false positive”.

Today is #GivingTuesday and we know you're probably buried up to your eyes in fundraising emails, but there are only a handful of non-profit newsrooms in New Jersey and we wanted to make sure you know how important it is to support them as well.

Here's a list of them!
There's @aboutbloomfield in Essex County, a community news service dedicated to making Bloomfield more informed, engaged, and resilient.

bloomfieldinfo.org/give
There's @Chalkbeat in Newark, with its reporters working around the clock to answer urgent questions facing NJ educators, families, school boards, and residents.

As state officials launched sham election reviews to push the Big Lie that the 2020 election was stolen, we sprung to action and filed dozens of public records requests to investigate. This #GivingTuesday , here’s an overview of what we’ve uncovered about sham election reviews.
I: Arizona. Soon after the election, the Arizona Senate, led by Senate President Karen Fann, subpoenaed Maricopa County, the state’s most populous county, for images of mail-in ballots, voting equipment, and other documents.
Records we later obtained showed that Fann boasted about having “numerous conversations” with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani during this period, and had received a “personal call from President Trump thanking us for pushing to prove any fraud.”

I do not generally support brands on social media because, one, it’s too much pressure and, two, when I ask you to support something I want you to trust that it’s really important.

This week and any week, please consider supporting your LOCAL bail fund and/or @nightschoolbar
I always appreciate your support, obvi, but I’m full up on gifts! If you have ever felt inclined to tip me, these two causes are really good approximations of my values: debt-free humanistic inquiry for all & freedom over money. Thank you 🙏🏾.

If you support natsec whistleblowers and want to help ensure that they are protected and represented, please consider making a donation this #GivingTuesday to one of the non-profits out here on the front lines of natsec whistleblowing.
Many of our clients have just lost their jobs due to retaliation and can't really afford to pay lawyers a living wage, and so these non-profits rely to a significant degree on donations to help cover their costs.

I analyzed ~65,000 nonprofit tax returns to see where charitable dollars go in America.

I learned that environmental nonprofits receive less than 2% of all donations.

Here's what else I learned 🧵

#GivingTuesday #energytwitter
In 2020 Americans gave $471 billion to nonprofits.

Most of those donations went to the following categories: religion, education, human services, and health.

Environmental organizations received just $8 billion (~2%) — the least amount of any category tracked by the IRS. Image
Organizations working to reduce GHG emissions received only $2 billion.

That means 0.4% of all charitable donations went to climate mitigation.

Which is a huge bummer to say the least.

Dear friends: I thought you might like to know the story of Mikono Refugee Crafts Shop, the @JesuitRefugee Service project that we're supporting today. It's a wonderful story about a ministry that helps refugees help themselves.

It started in a bungalow in Nairobi in 1993...
Uta Fager, an Austrian lay woman, and I had worked with the "income-generating projects" at JRS for a year, helping East African refugees in Nairobi start small businesses, like Edith's and Immaculate's batiks. People would see the handicrafts and say, "Where can I buy that?"...
We realized that it would help to have a place where we could market the refugee-made handicrafts, as well as have an office where we could meet with the refugees. It was no problem filling up the shop! And business was brisk immediately....

As hard as fundraising is, in general, it’s even harder for Black-led nonprofits. Here’s why… 🧵
#GivingTuesday
jemartisby.substack.com/p/why-its-so-h…
Racism grew and endured in the United States because it was attached to a financial system—race-based chattel slavery…For centuries, enslaved Black people literally built the wealth of this nation and they were compensated not a bit.
jemartisby.substack.com/p/why-its-so-h…
Even after emancipation, Black people found themselves released from the physical chains of slavery only to be enslaved to generational poverty.

Through replacement systems such as convict leasing and sharecropping, the economic exploitation of Black people’s labor continued.

Have you heard of Clearview AI before?
When you upload photos to Instagram and other social media platforms, do you expect them to be scanned for biometric information and stored on a database?

Probably not, right?

For #GivingTuesday I finally put my first book chapter online, along with some reflections in the year since I wrote it. I wouldn't have put it this way at the time, but I believe tax and benefit policy is a promising cause area for effective altruists. ubicenter.org/mortality-exis…
My overall thesis is:
* Poverty increases mortality and leading indicators of mortality
* Poverty destabilizes individuals & society, increasing existential risk
* UBI > alternative antipoverty policies

I also posted this to the @Effect_Altruism forum. forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/Z8GCPjoy…
If you're feeling generous today and want to directly reduce poverty and its broader consequences as my chapter describes, I recommend @GiveDirectly. donate.givedirectly.org

For those able and inclined to support First Amendment rights on #GivingTuesday, here are some organizations dedicated to First Amendment rights who would, I’m sure, appreciate any help you can give.
A few points before I start the list, each of these organizations has a different focus, a different mission, a different political view, a different idea of what liberty looks like. I’ll leave it up to you to decide which are best or most deserving.
If you can’t afford to donate money, there are still ways you can help. You could volunteer with these organizations, promote their message online, or explain and advocate for 1A rights to those around you who need to hear it. More ideas from Popehat:

This #GivingTuesday, support our investigation into the “Big Lie,” including the bogus voter-fraud myth at its core; the attempts to stop the certification of the 2020 election; the Jan. 6 attacks; new voting-restriction bills; and sham election reviews.
actionnetwork.org/fundraising/gi…
We recently published an in-depth look at the “Big Lie” — that the election was “stolen” from Trump because of voter fraud — and the array of allies who for years have been sowing the seeds of this democracy-undermining lie.
americanoversight.org/from-voter-fra…
Those allies include his own inner circle of lawyers as well as grassroots leaders; legislators who used the Big Lie to restrict voting rights in their states; deep-pocketed conservative groups; & state attorneys general who backed outlandish legal challenges to the 2020 results.

“even the most difficult change is possible when we do it together.”

Social Capital Coalition. ⁦@lifeafterhate⁩ ⁦@CultExpert⁩ ? Lead? lifeafterhate.org/blog/2021/11/1…
This is some serious in the trenches hard work done by @lifeafterhate
We have to do this guided work at our kitchen tables & in our communities. We can’t look to any gov’t entities or authorities to do this part for us. lifeafterhate.org/blog/2021/11/1…
“Reconciliation...followed, albeit slowly and painstakingly as we opened up to one another with the hurtful questions and equally heartbreaking replies...”

This is our job. It’s the only way to build our social capital.
Kitchen table talk. Hard words.
