1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4675: John Thune's reaction to Mitch McConnell's statement re Fox News' characterization of events of January 6th 2021 #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #JohnThune #MitchMcConnell #FoxNews #EmotionalIntelligence

2/ Yesterday, Senator Mitch McConnell said, "Clearly, the Chief of the Capitol Police, in my view, correctly describes what most of us witnessed, firsthand, on January 6th..."
3/ Senator McConnell continued, "...It was a mistake, in my view, for Fox News to depict this in a way that's completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at the Capitol thinks."

XBB variants evade antibodies and are more likely to persist in organs

75% of U.S. substantial or high transmission levels

Coinfections are more severe

Multiple respiratory viruses are circulating at very high levels.

#MitchMcConnell, #Republicans, #Biden, #Democrats.
XBB.1.5 is over 89% of cases in the U.S.

XBB.1.5 has spawned over 20 sub-variants, many of which have new advantages.

Mutations are occurring more often in the body of the virus.

It's likely to find a combo to further suppress the T-cell response soon.
It is horrible that more immunocompromised & elderly are getting infected & dying with protections lifted.

The more immunocompromised infected, the more rapid the pace of evolution.

The direction it's headed isn't likely to be less dangerous.

More will suffer from #LongCovid

1/ This fight over @GOPLeader isn't really about McCarthy (though for some of the 20 it is). What this is about is the pending #debt ceiling fight likely in February. Here's what's going on (a thread)...
@GOPLeader 2/ 'Twas the night before Xmas (not exactly but close enough) & all thru the night, lobbyists were skulking the decorated hall of Congress, looking for handouts for their special interests. Everyone on Capitol Hill wanted to go home for the holidays so, w/o much debate,
@GOPLeader 3/ A group of elected officials pushed through a $1.7 Trillion spending bill w/o debate or even so much of a "Dear Colleague" letter. It was imperious. What upset some on the Hill the most was that the spending bill was chock full of goodies for Left-wing special interests.

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

Mitch McConnell (trend) literally referred to Black ppl as "African AMERICANS."

This is a nothing-burger.

But the left must distract from their loser of an argument in "voting rights are at stake." They have no better argument. Their failing policies are doing all the talking. Image
Side note: The phrase "African American" in reference to Black Americans is foolish.

Black American makes far more sense as a very general rule, especially because some people from Africa are White, etc.

Now, anyone wanna defend Dem policy over the past year?
Left: "Republicans are banning Black ppl from voting! Jim Crow 2.0! Jim Eagle!"

Mitch McConnell: "African Americans" are voting at the same rates as "Americans."

Left: He's saying African Americans aren't Americans!


Please people...use your brain cells.

Sen. #MitchMcConnell refuses to call out Trump on anniversary of Jan. 6 attack on Capitol…

"Instead McConnell accused Democrats of seeking to “exploit this anniversary” by pushing for new protections for American democracy."

To paraphrase one of the heroes defending the #USCapitol:
That day, We were in a War. Each of us was fighting an individual battle, in that war. Different locations, different perspectives, different wounds & traumas. But we were in a real war for our democracy!

The individual trauma of everyone participating in this @January6thCmte room was evident and moving.😢

Clever @WhiteHouse move: Issuing fact sheets for every State & Territory on what will be fixed, at what cost, if the $2+ trillion infrastructure plan is passed by the Senate.…
2/ In NY, e.g., the plan wld fix 1,702 bridges & >7,292 miles of highway;
modernize public transit w/$85 billion investment;
$111 billion investment to ensure safe drinking water; >$200 billion to ^ housing supply;
$100 billion for universal, high-speed, internet...
3/ In #MitchMcConnell's #Kentucky the plan wld fix:
- 1,033 bridges & >1,322 miles of highway
- provide $50 billion to improve infrastructure disaster resiliency
@POTUS is using this to make it hard for #GOP Senators to say no.

The question everyone, especially law enforcement, needs to ask is: how did #Cult45 members get into the Capital building?? Someone on the inside is complicit in this fascist display. #WashingtonDC #DCProtests
#MitchMcConnell fully enabled & helped create this fascist Frankenstein monster. His empty words now mean nothing.

#Cult45 #WashingtonDC #CapitalHill #Thugs #TrumpRally
#Cult45 thugs roaming the Capital building shouting “DEFEND TRUMP”. Their goal is not truth, democracy or the constitution, it is fulfilling the delusion of a psychopath. #WashingtonDC #TrumpRally

To #MitchMcConnell and the #GOP:


There is no election DAY. There is an election DEADLINE.

In addition to the hypocrisy evident in your 18 Sept 2020 declaration (exposing your racism/animus in 2016) ... YOU ARE INTERFERING WITH THE ELECTION.

The next Congress should make it clear that judicial appointments if any stripe are inappropriate once the November election has begun.

I think Strom Thurmond’s summer admonition makes sense.… Image
And in 2016, Chuck Grassley (R-IA) pointed out that “[d]uring the last four presidential election years, the last confirmation vote of a circuit court nominee occurred before the summer recess.” Image

#SCOTUS Announces Death of #RuthBaderGinsberg who mostly likely passed away last year.

#PresidentTrump must announce a nominee immediately and #MitchMcConnell must confirm a new Justice before the end of the year.

#RBG #RIP: You can no longer harm our Republic.

In my grief/excitement over #RBG passing I misspelled the #RuthBaderGinsburg as #RuthBaderGinsberg.

Either way #RIP and let's replace her with an originalist!

Okay, so I've FINALLY figured out what @JoeBiden said. However, I don't think what Joe Biden said is the real issue because I've said the SAME thing several times myself.
But my question is this. WHERE is all this energy when it comes to @SenatorTimScott , @DiamondandSilk, @PARISDENNARD, @RealCandaceO, @GayleKing, #ClarenceThomas, @tavissmiley, @CornelWest, and that greasy ass pastor what's-his-name that looks like a pimp?
There's a whole LOT of people that I wish y'all would hate on instead of Joe damn Biden! But let's not let Joe off the hook. Joe's problem is not what Joe said; but rather, what Joe DIDN'T say.

Thread: On May 11, Senate Majority Leader #MitchMcConnell alleged that the Obama administration did not provide the Trump administration with any information about the threat of a possible pandemic. KHN/@PolitiFact #HealthCheck

Here's the quote 👇 Image
Soon after, @RonaldKlain, the White House Ebola response coordinator from October 2014 to February 2015, tweeted out a link to a document titled “Playbook for Early Response to High-Consequence Emerging Infectious Disease Threats and Biological Incidents.”
In a May 14 interview on Fox News, @senatemajldr said “I was wrong. They did leave behind a plan. I clearly made a mistake in that regard.”

2020 is a major inflection point in American politics:

The Democratic Party is poised to become either a party of the people or a party of big money and GOP appeasement.

Which path do YOU choose?

Follow the facts & the money...

First, let's get something out of the way:

The GOP is a rightwing extremist party, a threat to democracy.

But that doesn't give Dem leaders a free pass. It's our DUTY to hold politicians accountable. Unthinking party loyalty is a path to tyranny...

If your overarching objective is to defeat Trump, let's see how we got here in the first place:

When Bush-Cheney launched a brutal war based on lies to open this century, most Dem leaders went right along — the same Dems in leadership roles today...

Partying with Trump cronies.


@leeladaou and I are advising progressive congressional candidates running against entrenched Dem politicians. Here are examples of those establishment Dems cozying up to Trump cronies....👇🏽
While Trump spewed hate and racism, @RepMaloney partied with his accomplices.

While Trump incited white supremacist violence and #MitchMcConnell provided senatorial cover, @RepTomSuozzi hung out with McConnell at an AEI luxury gathering.

TO: @senatemajldr
RE: #Impeachment

Do you recall this quote:

"Time after time, the President came to a fork in the road. Time after time, he chose the path of lies and lawlessness." - #MitchMcConnell
@senatemajldr “[Clinton] doesn’t have to say, ‘Go lie for me,’ to be a crime. You don’t have to say, ‘Let’s obstruct justice’ for it to be a crime. You judge people on their conduct, not magic phrases.” - #LindseyGraham
@senatemajldr "The true tragedy in this case is the collapse of the President's moral authority ... there is the issue of the abuse of power and authority. This White House has perfected the art of stonewalling around the truth." - #ChuckGrassley
