If we win all of the close Dem house races, we don't have to worry about the insane possibility of losing the house when it matters most. cookpolitical.com/ratings/house-…
These are the races as currently predicted. Predictions do not take into account large turnout for Dems, because one of the assumptions of polling is that Dems don't turn out in midterms.
One of those races - I just discovered - is in my state, #Maryland. A man that is on the right side of things, and deserves support.

1. Read #Bruen 's majority and concurring opinions. Pretty straight forward and broadly addresses and determines discretionary licensing under the police powers is patently unconstitutional.

Alito completely takes apart the dissent. I didn't waste time on the dissent. ...
2. If you tried following liberal progressive legal theory on the #2A over 75 years, you could have written Breyer's dissent for him. Kavanaugh is interesting. Sounds like he was assigned to assuage the regulators assuring that shall issue licensing laws met the test....
3. What Kav didn't do is give us any clue as to what is permissible in the way of licensing requirements. To date, even IL which was bound by a very tight 7th Cir Appeals decision that abided by Heller. (IL could have had "constitutional carry.") IL did not try to obstruct

Hey, #HoCoMD friends, be careful out there. This rain is crazy. Just got flash flood warning. Those of us who have lived here awhile know the history of this town, including the last tragic flash flood just 4y ago: apps.npr.org/ellicott-city/. #ECstrong
And now add a tornado warning to the flash flood warning, #HoCoMD. Done that before too in our own backyard (📸 2003). Careful out there, #EllicottCity neighbors.

I want to thank @MO_Independent for this reporting. It is good and important reporting, and I thank them for shining a light on missing foster kids in Missouri.

And other states should have picked it up.
missouriindependent.com/2022/05/23/%e2…
No doubt 1,780 missing kids is bad. That is 4% of the total of foster kids during this period that went missing.

But the study was about how states report and search for missing kids.
oig.hhs.gov/oas/reports/re…
#Kansas, #Maryland, #Nebraska, #NewYork, and #Ohio each reported 7% of their foster kids went missing during the same period. SEVEN PERCENT.

A quick google search didn't show any news reporting raising concerns mentioning missing foster kids in these states.

"Charles Edwards" is the man pictured in the photo who just pled guilty to stealing software and databases from the government while he was Inspector General for DHS under Obama.

Read on to learn what the media isn't telling you about "Charles". 🧵

lawandcrime.com/high-profile/e…
This guy's job was to act as a watchdog for fraud. Instead, he defrauded the government to steal the personal data for a quarter of a million DHS and USPS workers and sell it to India.
Who would steal software and databases to develop a product to sell back to the government? Sounds familiar right? Charles KUMAR Edwards took a page out of the outsourcing playbook.

This is horrifying. I expected this to happen at some point in Jan or Feb with #Omicron. I didn't expect it happen on January 1. 💔

🙏 to all of of the volunteer #firefighters & #EMS. Friends, please go donate to your local depts to honor their service. #MedTwitter #Maryland
Listen, important. Most adults in #Maryland are #vaccinated. Fewer kids are. MANY haven't yet gotten a #boostershot (only 70M in entire US pop of 331M #boosted). A booster will ⬇️ risk of hospitalization by 88% & starts protecting you in 7d with major protection in 14d. GO DO IT!
If you're #boosted, THANK YOU. Your job is to call 3 people age 16+ NOW who are #vaccinated but not yet #boosted & tell them to #GetBoosted ASAP. This is time-critical, esp w/ #schools to reopen in 36 hrs. #Baltimore #Maryland, appts here as soon as 1/4: umms.org/coronavirus/co…

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

From direct comms to #Maryland physicians:

🆘 State just set record for new daily cases
🆘 Hospitalizations ⬆️ >180% in month since #Omicron identified by WHO as a #covidvariant of concern
🆘 8.8% of unvaccinated #Maryland adults account for >75% of #COVID19 hospitalizations
2/4 Quit scrolling & listen to me. This is a big f-ing deal. If you are indoors in public without a high-quality mask, #Omicron will find you. If you are not #vaccinated, you are at high-risk to land in an overcrowded, understaffed hospital. Most Americans have no experience…
3/4 With what it means to be in a hospital where conditions are frankly unsafe, which is where we now are. I have worked in countries where there aren’t enough hospital beds & pts are on floors, where 1 dr is overseeing care of WAY too many patients. I have been that dr.

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've been MIA for a few weeks, because a lot has been happening to my family, particularly my mother at the hands of @CarrollHospital in MD. In the beginning, it was a call for help in search of a lawyer, now we're spreading the word because we want change. #Health 1/3 ImageImageImageImage
I posted this to Facebook on 10/19, with the update being posted on 10/21. Many are telling us not to go back to this hospital, but my mother is not well + if an ambulance were to come, they have to take her there. #Health #Maryland 2/3 ImageImageImageImage
We're putting our house on the market to leave our home of nearly 30 years. This way, if the need arises, she won't have to be taken to @CarrollHospital. Please share. We don't want this happening to anyone else who can't advocate for themselves. #Health #Maryland 3/3 Image
