The effort to convince Americans that #COVID19 is a #ChineseWuhanVirus is being pushed by conservatives attempting to deflect blame for the government's weak response, trying to frame the virus and keep it from being Trump's #Katrina moment. Please follow this thread to see how👇
The effort is led by the National Center for Public Policy Research (#NCCPR) and the Media Research Center (MRC). NCPPR started it's own Voter Identification Task Force after the #ALEC caved in to public pressures to dismantle it's Public Safety and Elections Task Force.
The National Center for Public Policy Research was also home to Jack Abramoff's defauding of #NativeAmerican tribes. #NCPPR directed money received from tribes and distributed it to other "charities," at Abramoff's direction. sourcewatch.org/index.php/Nati…

1. Why won't Trump impose the full emergency powers? @POTUS and @SenateGOP are controlled by the extremist #Koch family that does not believe in a powerful central government. All Trump's, "The states will do it" nonsense is being dictated by this guy & executed by @MarkMeadows.
2. Should we all take a pilgrimage to #Wichita to petition King Charles to allow us to live? Perhaps after we bury mom and dad. @RepMarkMeadows @GroverNorquist @KSNNews @SenateGOP @SenSchumer
3. I can read the future. If Trump does not dump Meadows and tell Koch to back off, Trump will be impeached and removed by summer. @TheDemocrats @WhiteHouse @WHNSC @PressSec @KellyannePolls @senatemajldr @GOPLeader @maddow

Roland #Koch? Sagt wem von Euch der Name noch was? Ja, genau, der mit #Bilfinger von der #CDU #Hessen.
Ein Blick ins Archiv verrät: #Rassismus war schon vor der Jahrtausendwende ein Problem der CDU - und der rechte Rand Wählerbasis! /MS
Die #AfD ist ideologisches und teils personelles (Gauland!) Fleisch vom Fleisch der #CDU & #CSU. Nur wer alte Kontinuitäten erkennt, versteht warum #Maaßen und Konsorten so denken, wie sie es tun. Und vor allem, wohin sie wieder zurück wollen. /MS
"Kinder statt Inder", "jetzt sollen noch Hindus hinzukommen" - nicht die #AfD, sondern Jürgen #Rüttgers, anno 2000 #CDU Spitzenkandidat in #NRW als Reaktion auf die "Green-Card-Initiative" von Gerhard #Schröder (#SPD, damals Kanzler). /MS

"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP web.archive.org/web/2012020417…

We see a lot about the Conservative party and International Democrat Union (IDU) floating around Twitter these days. Many are unfamiliar with who/what they are.
(This may turn into a thread)
Quick starter:
#cdnpoli #elxn43 #ItsOurVote
Does this scare you?
It should.
It's all very "New World Order. "
#cdnpoli #elxn43 #IDU
The IDU is even more worrisome when you look at its membership;

I cannot think of anything more dangerous than Paul "TheVulture" Singer seizing control of @CNN through a takeover of its parent company, @ATT. Well to the right of #DonaldTrump, Singer’s the new #Koch Brother — but more dangerous. bloomberg.com/news/articles/… #PaulSinger #TheVulture
@CNN @ATT #Trump is clearly expecting an editorial shift from #CNN following #PaulSinger's newly disclosed $3.2 billion stake. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

On Sept 9, Trump tweeted this...

NOTHING FOR FREE - How Private Judicial Seminars Are Undermining Environmental Protections and Breaking the Public's Trust web.archive.org/web/2007071114… See How the Far Right has Been Influencing the Judiciary since the 1990's❗️
From 1992-1998 just 3 of these organizations ran 540 "seminars" for conservative judges, building towards a conservative judicial consensus on environmental issues
Within the programs at the Law and Economic Center judges are instructed in such matters as "Misconceptions About Environmental Pollution and Cancer" and "Real Science vs. Junk Science" - with a distinct free market, anti-regulatory orientation.

In het boek 'Waarom de wereld niet naar de knoppen gaat' schrijft Maarten Boudry @mboudry ook over de klimaatproblematiek. Hij wijst terecht op enkele valkuilen van het ecologisch denken. Maar sommige van z'n kernideeën zijn zwak onderbouwd of zelfs simpelweg fout. Een draadje.
Boudry is op z'n sterkst als hij enkele valkuilen van het ecologisch denken op de korrel neemt zoals doemdenken en misantropie, harmonie toedichten aan de natuur, relatieve risico's van bepaalde technologie (zoals kernenergie of GGO's) verabsoluteren, enz.
Ook z'n oproep om geconfronteerd met de klimaatproblematiek als 'verstandige en volwassen goden' het hoofd koel te houden en de handen uit de mouwen te steken, is terecht.

This is good but we'd be far from safe.
Remember that it was ppl like the #Kochs (follow with many other billionare names) who spent decades planting an army of politicians across the entire country to bend it slow to their will.

From @ALEC_states talking points given to members this year: "No one individual or organization makes up more than two percent of ALEC’s budget." This is what they are telling legislators to say when asked questions about its #Koch funding. It is just not accurate. #ALECInDC
(2) There are a number of big inaccuracies in these talking points. This is doing legislators a disservice if they rely on these thinking that they are accurate. ALEC surely knows they are giving legislative members inaccurate information.
(3) The statement about no single funder giving more than two percent of the budget, was provided so legislators could respond to questions about the power of the Koch brothers and other big donor over ALEC.

1. To get @GOP traitors to come clean we need to touch that one nerve a member of the GOP feels: Their money. It's in Constitution that Traitors can lose all assets and their family too during their lives. I think NY common law still has that rule. May seize #Koch family assets.
2. US Constitution Art. III, Sec 3, clause 2.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
3. The GOP blood is corrupt and should declared so. Come back to being a loyal US citizen or prepare to be fully and completely destroyed. There will be no mercy for Traitors or their family. @senatemajldr's spouse can lose all her family property. It will be so. @SecElaineChao
