If you want to understand how the Supreme Court rules on politics rather than the law look no further than the arena of Federal Indian Law.

Today #SCOTUS changed who has criminal jurisdiction on over 300 reservations not based on precedent or even the facts on the ground…
But based on #Oklahoma’s exaggerated & demonstrably false claims about the impact of #McGirt.

Our reporting found OK’s claims in #Castro were incorrect & likely fabricated. But it didn’t matter.

When it comes to tribal sovereignty the Supreme Court is repeatedly more wedded to the expectations of white Americans than our constitution, federal law, or even the truth.

Here's a list of #Oklahoma politicians who have taken money from EPIC charter schools' co-founders David Chaney and Ben Harris and former CFO Josh Brock, all of whom were arrested today on RICO and other criminal complaints. 🧵
These records only go back to 2016, but you can see that the founders definitely spread their wealth around to numerous #Oklahoma politicians, including this year's two major gubernatorial candidates before they were opponents - Stitt and Hofmeister, as well as former AG Hunter
Page 1 of Chaney's donations. Ignore the first two entries, the David Chaney from Perkins. That's a different guy. Image

Heartening to know that today there are gobs & scads of young #Dentist's who want to learn more about who precisely WAS "C.C. Bass, M.D", and what did he have to say about #PreventiveDentistry?
For the last few decades or so, just about any young #Dentist, when they first learn the real story of who "C. C. Bass, M.D." is, and what he actually did, are puzzled.
A couple of channels results from their #DentalSkool teaching, and thus their thinking.

#BREAKING The #Oklahoma governor just signed a *total* abortion ban with a Texas-style enforcement mechanism. It goes into effect immediately making Oklahoma the first state to totally outlaw abortion since #RoeVWade in 1973. What this means 🧵
The impact will be disastrous for Oklahomans. It will also have severe ripple effects, especially for Texas patients who had been traveling to OK in large numbers after the TX 6-week abortion ban went into effect in September.
Some basic stats. In Oklahoma there are:

* 5 abortion providers (as of yesterday, they can no longer provide abortion care)

* 890,000 women aged 15-49 (plus people who can become pregnant who don’t identify as women)

* 4,780 abortions obtained in 2017

Normalize calling us Native Nations rather than Tribes. Specifically, the term five civilized tribes is adhering to the colonization of who we are (imo). Referring to us as Tribes infers we are inferior to ‘civilized’ people. And capitalize the words. 1)
The most recent economic impact data from 2017 shows the Native Nations contributed 15.5 billion to the state of OK. Our activities supported over 96,000 jobs in the state, 4.6 billion in wages & benefits to OK workers, & 12.9 billlion in state production of good & services 2)
Additionally, Native Nations brought 42.6 million into the state for construction & maintenance & have provided more than 1.5 billion in exclusivity fees, of which 1.3 billion go to support statewide education programs. This is the info that needs to be shared. Mvto 🪶 #Oklahoma

It's no coincidence that the states eager to keep women from controlling their own reproduction also refuse to care for those women or their children.
Compare the states ready to ban abortion with a map of states that refused to expand #Medicaid.
The maps are overly simplistic in showing states' expansions of #Medicaid, and this thread will explain some of what's complicated.

In essence, many states led by #Republicans didn't want to expand a program that helps pregnant women, kids, and the frail elderly. Voters did.
Let's take those anti-abortion states that "have expanded Medicaid" in alphabetical order.

So, first, Arkansas.

#Arkansas led the way in requiring people on #Medicaid to work. Their unique plan also disenrolled people who didn't meet the work requirement.

If #okleg is serious about cleaning up this mess, why stop at the Swadley's scandal? Over the last 4 years corruption and cronyism at the capitol has been commonplace. Here's a thread of just SOME of the scandals that have plagued politicians and left taxpayers frustrated. 🧵

Tomorrow #SCOTUS will hear oral arguments in a case that could limit the scope of its 2020 #McGirt decision.

Using alarming facts & figures, #Oklahoma claims McGirt led to criminal justice chaos. But we looked into it, & their numbers don’t add up.

theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
In its CERT petition in Castro, OK claimed up to 76,000 past convictions could be impacted according to district attorneys. The governor‘s office confirmed the estimate came from DAs. But when we contacted the DAs, they didn’t know what the governor was talking about.
According to data from the OKDOC, only 68 inmates have been released from prison to the street bc of McGirt. And since courts ruled the decision is not retroactive, even that number is shrinking.

Depuis mercredi, le #Kentucky est le SEUL Etat US sans cliniques proposant aux femmes la possibilité d'1 IVG après l'adoption d'1 nouvelle loi conservatrice. Le droit à l'#avortement y est pour l'heure empêché avant les recours devant la justice fédérale. eu.courier-journal.com/story/news/pol…

THRED. “Sara” is a survivor from #Oklahoma. She doesn’t remember when her father began coming to to her bedroom at night. She became pregnant with her first child at age 14. Her father convinced her mother that Sara had been sleeping around and that’s how to became pregnant.
They found an unmarried 37 y/o member of their community to marry Sara before the child was born. This happened legally in #Oklahoma less than 10 years ago. #Oklahoma is one of several states in the #USA that after Judiciary & parental exceptions there is no min age to marry
When Sara was 20 she entered into a homeless shelter with 5 children that she had given birth too during the marriage. Sara had no control over her body or access to family planning. With not even a high school education she found herself in a shelter with her children because

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

Last week, I worked alongside the most compassionate, fun, & talented staff providing #abortion care to the people of #Oklahoma, #Texas, and beyond.

We worked *hard*. We stayed late. We laughed. We cried. We took care of each other. This is my message to all of us...
1/
We can't keep going at this pace, y'all.
I'm tired. I'm really, really tired. Aren't you?

The hard truth is, we don't have the capacity for what's about to happen. Take your time off, now. Then take some more. Support your folx to take more time.

2/

We are the experts in caring for our communities.
We live here. We raise our families here.

Solutions for us must be led by us.

Anything less recreates the same systems of oppression we are *all* fighting. The time for urgency has passed, it's time to listen to us.

Reporters, please get serious.

Q: Why did you refuse to implement a statewide mask mandate knowing that not doing so would kill hundreds of people?
Q: Why did you sign a law to ban public schools from imposing their own mask mandates, knowing that such a law would lead to #Oklahoma children being hospitalized?
Q: Who are your science advisors?
