Non-Hungarian folks likely missed what
@PM_ViktorOrban posted 2 days ago on his FB:

"Advent Military Operation" - Peculiar wording ...

Not even his assault-rifle-loving #MAGA #Republican #USA friends would use such phrasing to describe going shopping for a wreath

He didn't visit #Kyiv, he sent the loyal party member @KatalinNovakMP to #Ukraine, but that's another story
No, he was just shopping in #Budapest
This may be a surprise for some, but despite the Christian tarpaulin, Orbán is actually an #Atheist

nytimes.com/2019/03/15/wor…
Pastor Gábor Iványi, known for charity work, head of the Hungarian Evangelical Brotherhood - who called Orbán a symbol of #Fascism, an insolent who will be damned, a leader at the height of madness - is one of the rare spiritual leaders, to dare to openly criticize Orbán

So abortion is healthcare and a human right no matter the reason. I wanted to highlight this. TW: Miscarriage, Forced Birth, Loss of reproductive ability

google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.…
This woman almost lost her life because she didn't have access to an abortion. She miscarried. Her water broke at 14 weeks, and the doctors told her she will develop a life threatening infection, but because Texas is so vague with it's fucking law they couldn't provide abortion.
There was no saving the child. They were dead. They begged the doctors. There was nothing that they could do to save this wanted pregnancy.

So she went home.

And she developed an infection and was sent to the E.R. her fever spiked to 104 and they finally got the abortion.

This is Sheriff Paul Penzone of .@mcsoaz in .@maricopacounty

Apparently is is a Democrat, and has surrounded the tabulator center, and removing people who have questions.

I think the .@NationalGuard gonna have to move in.

They got the evidence now...

🧵
The head law man in .@maricopacounty also put security around ballot boxes when people were watching for ballot mules.

It appears he is protecting the cheaters.

The .@NationalGuard had a cyber team monitoring the private logs and found proof of connectivity to internet...
They had to shut down the machines so that the .@NationalGuard could not collect the communication between the the voting machines.

Immediately the propaganda wing started to do work.

.@Google is complicit and is helping to steal the elections too.

Will justice be served?...

Important🧵 : Forget #Medvedev and ask two question instead. Then you understand why we will never stop and why time is against #Russia. It’s called #Holodomor and you must make it trend.
1. Have you stop to ask why #Russia is willing to destroy itself and world so that this red monster can have this tiny yellow speck? Why Russia has spent years bribing American #Republican party? Why it corrupted election of 2016? Just to get this speck?
2. Because it already is answered for you in history. Russia cannot survive alone. It can only survive as parasite on others. #Putin and his regime have stolen everything. They can’t survive.

@GOP @DNC #VOTE #DemocraticParty #Republican
Enough is enough! Not I nor anyone else should have to sit you down and dress you down for your behavior, nor have to tell you to do your job! We shouldn't have to remind you of your oath!
Yet here I am, dealing with a pack of kids!🧵
Your conduct is unacceptable, childish, and corrupt! That applies to both sides! Sit your asses down and close your mouths for a change. LISTEN!
WE, the American people, the voters, are the BOSS. YOU are the employees. Period.
Not the rich, not the lobbies, not other governments.
YOU work for US. So you have two choices: Do the job we assigned you or get removed and punished for your crimes. You may act like a bunch of corrupt little 5 year olds, but you are not 5! You are adults, and consequences for your actions exist!

@davidhogg111 I was a Republican for 35 years, and entirely committed.

I was fully on board, for decades, and totally believed that Democrats were completely wrong about pretty much everything.

Why? Well, for starters, I didn't watch TV, but I did listen to talk radio.

1/
@davidhogg111 Here in SW Missouri, the ONLY talk radio that's available is NPR, and 3 different "conservative" talk radio stations.

I never listened to NPR, for several reasons.

Half of the time, the station plays classical music. (Boring.)

They also spend time on obscure artsy stuff.

2/
@davidhogg111 They also spend time on news from places like Peru. I wasn't interested.

That left the "conservative" talk radio stations.

I didn't care for Limbaugh, but I was a big fan of Sean Hannity.

Left Foot Forward:
Lurching the UK towards 'Reaganomics'

A ‘foot soldier’ for US economic fundamentalists, #Truss and her cabinet appear to be applying policy from an American right-wing playbook and lurching the country towards ‘#Reaganomics.’ /1
#RightWingWrong
/2 For the most part, since 1980, #Republican economic policy has revolved around a single policy - hefty tax cuts heavily tilted towards the rich with enormous budgetary deficits as a consequence. Under the Reagan Presidency (1980-1988), income tax was cut across the board
/3 and the top rate of income tax reduced from 70% to 28%. Both Reagan and Bush ran up enormous deficits via huge tax cuts. When Clinton came to power in 1993, he had an awful mess to clean up.

Apart from leading to higher income inequality and punishing the poor –

Common sense says if you want a #Democracy to advance and flourish, you need to improve it with scientific precision. So, #Marxist countries make it very easy to have what is known in America as a #ConstitutionalConvention. Aka whenever they come up with something better for

"It goes to show that the kids that you abuse today, those are the ones that are going to kick you down tomorrow. We were abused by Agape but we weren’t scared.” @RobertBucklin8

Agape has a long history of alleged abuse.

"All 10 substantiated preponderance of evidence claims against Agape involved findings of physical abuse. Those 10 substantiated claims are the only ones reported by the state since 2006."

#ImpactFees in 2020 @dsjernigan had his attempt for #MetroNashville to impose #ImpactFees shot down by Republicans in favor of #RealtorsLobby and have the audacity to blame Nashville for not being capable of keeping up with the growth demands.
In 2022 they killed it again as #metrocouncil offered it as a compromise to hosting the #RNC in 2024. Cepicky who is backed by the same group paying to kill #ImpactFees authored his own #ImpactFee bill, but refused to work with @dsjernigan for a bipartisan movement.
His also didn’t get any traction because the @TNGOP is beholden to donors not #voters. The lackluster response by Cepicky is who spent more of his time in the #TNLeg talking adolescent genitalia than helping prevent the need for a #MauryCounty property tax hike.

The @NCSBE voted this morning to certify the petition to add the @NorthCarolinaGP (Green Party) to the Nov. midterm ballot, but it will still take a court order to add @MatthewPHoh and @MichaelDTrudeau. While this is a small win for #ncpol it doesn't change several facts 🧵1/17
It doesn't change the fact that as a co-plaintiff in the lawsuit seeking ballot access for the Green Party, I must still go to a federal courthouse in downtown Raleigh, next Monday Aug 8th in order to defend my rights as a disenfranchised voter 2/17 apnews.com/article/2022-m…

So today lets talk about #HR8404, otherwise known as the Respect for Marriage Act, which just passed the house yesterday and seeks to codify federal law to protect same-sex marriage equality. A few points:
The reason for urgency to pass this legislation is that the Supreme Court is clearly laying the groundwork to roll back these types of protections over the coming years. There are also good arguments for federally codifying this irrespective of supreme court decision making.
It’s in a long line of legislation that has passed the house this year while being doomed to fail in the #senate. I hesitate to even call this bill progressive, but is an example of how the house keeps passing things (gun reform as example) that get blocked in Senate.

Real-time tracking of #Republican progression:

First, they immediately questioned and denied the reports of a 10 y/o child in Ohio being raped and traveling to Indiana for an abortion. They immediately claimed it was a Democrat fomented lie. 1/⏬
Ohio AG Yost (@DaveYostOH) and Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) immediately came out swinging, not only casting doubt on the story--but also aspersions on every media source, every discussion, and every Democrat.

Irony that these two are Ohioans. Shocking, Yost is even the Ohio AG! 2/⏬
RWNJ media (e.g. Breitbart) still has the Yost story that states his office doesn't have any record or knowledge of such a victim. Despite some couching, this shows how shoddy Ohio's law enforcement is at the highest echelon.

Brietbart hasn't (even today) amended the story. 3/⏬

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.

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
