Winning elections isn't just about winning and gaining leverage. It's also about demoralizing the opposition, building a deep bench, setting state organizations up for future success, and more. Let's take a look at my favorite state, #PA, for an example of what I mean. (1/x)
First off, running in an election takes a *lot* of time, especially for statewide contests. You'd be taking years out of your life and a significant amount of commitment if you're serious about winning. So, if you run, you want to have a realistic chance of victory. (2/x)
Fetterman laid the groundwork for this extremely early. He ran for the seat he now holds all the way back in 2016, only to lose to McGinty. Then he tried again after some more prepping. And he won big. What does that do to the opposition, particularly the PA GOP? (3/x)

So, what an exciting week we have had, hey? Exciting and tragic. #ActionSA handed JHB back to the #anc by being naive, stupid and just plain know-it-all. Took over negotiations telling #DA who they should give what positions to, after they all signed an agreement about positions.
The #eff first voted with the #DA to get all the Metros, now they voted with the #anc again. Nothing new for them. They did this since 2016 with Mmusi too. They are by nature traitors and flipfloppers. Never to be trusted. The #PA sold their souls to the #anc again, like always.
Cope totally imploded and is now represented by a wild-eyed nutcase. #ActionSA started the instability in the Metros by constantly bashing the #DA and telling all the coalition partners how bad the #DA is. Then they went to the #DA and told them they MUST work with the #eff.

Makes for harrowing reading…👇…
“Parents can end up losing parenting time for trying to point out actual dangers because an evaluator assumes they are lying, he said.”…sounds familiar? #Cafcass
“She also suggested Elizabeth was projecting made-up medical problems onto her children when she sought advice for her daughter’s recurring stomach problems and expert opinions for her son’s special education needs.”
Sounds familiar? #FII

➡️ Autre vue d'artiste du #PA / #CV CATOBAR (Type 003) en construction au chantier Jiangnan Shipyard Group (Shanghai) et sa comparaison avec CVN-78 USS « Gerald R. Ford » (2017) : illustre les différences architecturales mais trompe sur les proportions.
➡️ Les photographies du chantier du #Type003 et les rumeurs laissent entrevoir quelques caractéristiques : ce porte-avions #CATOBAR aura une longueur hors-tout de 320 mètres - 300 m à la ligne de flottaison - pour un maître-bau de 78 mètres au niveau du pont d'envol et
40 m à la ligne de flottaison. Le déplacement lège ne serait pas connu - à l'instar du Type 002 - mais il est allégué que le déplacement à pleine charge atteindrait entre 85 000 et 98 000 tonnes : soit le déplacement à pleine charge (85 000 t) et celui en surcharge (98 000 t) ?

Un 🧶 à dérouler au sujet des rares mentions de la « Force Aéronavale Nucléaire » (origines historiques dans cet autre 🧶 : ) dans la cadre de la crise internationale englobant l'invasion de l'Ukraine 👇
➡️ Le 28 février 2022, Var Matin publie un papier (« Guerre en Ukraine: le porte-avions Charles de Gaulle, pièce maîtresse de la dissuasion nucléaire française » (…) au sujet de la FANu ;

➡️ Les origines de la #FANu peuvent être trouvées dans quatre projets distincts mais liés par lesquelles la Marine nationale proposait de créer l'une des composantes de la dissuasion nucléaire aux côtés de l'Armée de l'Air (Blog (29 septembre 2016) :…) :

Members of the US Senate often have conflicts of interest, both business and personal. But never before has our country exp a senator who has dual citizenship, served in a foreign military and maintains deep ties to the other nation where he holds citizenship
Hey #PA Republican voters

Instead of voting for a famous TV star, do some research. He's a Turkish citizen, is in allegiance with an autocrat, and not only is he not from PA, he's not from the US!
@DrOz has dual allegiances, and PA is not one of them…

The surgeon and TV personality running for Senate in PA has offered little insight into positions on domestic or foreign policy

And no, he's not 100% pro-life as he says on his website…

Dr. Oz is running for #PA senate.
Dr. Oz is a quack doctor. A fraud.

What's up with that? What IS a quack doctor?

An educational thread.

#MedEd #medtwitter

So I decided to look into this whole "quack doctor" thing.

Comes from old Dutch word QUACKSALVER, meaning "hawker of ointment".

Now it means someone who sells bogus cures.

Turns out, quack doctors have been around a long long time. They are con artists who know what people want from medicines.

We all want to:
lose weight
be younger
be smarter
have more energy

Happening NOW— White House, Secret Service officials prep for President Biden’s visit to Carpenters #Pittsburgh Training Center.

Within next 30 min-hour, Biden set to arrive & unveil his major infrastructure/jobs plan.

Limited access: ~2 dozen chairs spaced far apart; no public
Biden’s “American Jobs Plan” calls for pumping $ not only into traditional infrastructure projects — such as repairing dilapidated roads & bridges — but also expanding access to broadband internet, as the president tweeted about just as Air Force One touched down in #Pittsburgh.
The 4 areas covered in Biden’s infrastructure plan:

1). Roads, bridges, rail, transportation.

2). Broadband, water, power, housing & buildings.

3). Home & community-based care for seniors and people with disabilities.
