@AZSenateGOP @WendyRogersAZ Too bad❗️

Wendy called @CoryMillsFL, a decorated combat Army Veteran, an “anti-audit communist”. Before she bloviated such vile rhetoric, did she do her OWN research? I think NOT❗️


If this isn’t addressed, you condone this.
@AZSenateGOP @WendyRogersAZ @CoryMillsFL Just so you realize why this is so egregious Cory Mills was on an Afghanistan Rescue Mission after our government abandoned them in September 2021.

I’m sorry but you don’t call an American Freedom Fighter an “anti-audit communist”.

@AZSenateGOP @WendyRogersAZ @CoryMillsFL Furthermore, Rogers accused Cory Mills of being an “anti-audit communist”. If she researched before this making these disparaging comments, she would’ve learned Cory, Allen West and Dana Loesch were at the FIRST Stop The Steal rally.

This is going to be a long thread.🧵 #Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost released BCI case files from an officer-involved shooting last year in #Parma. He touted “full transparency” from the @OhioAG’s office. @DaveYostOH redacted names of 3 #SWAT officers who fired their weapons.
In June 2021, Kevin Giesel was shot & killed by officers from the Southwest Enforcement Bureau (SEB) #SWAT team during a 10-hour standoff at his house in #Parma. Giesel was a 64-year-old #Vietnam #veteran. He got into a shootout with #police officers.…
To be clear, I am in no way questioning why officers used deadly force or why a grand jury declined to indict the #police officers. I’m questioning the @OhioAG’s lack of transparency at a time when confidence in law enforcement is at an all-time low both in #Ohio & nationwide.

Crucial testimony from @DVASecretary Liz Cosson at Thursday's Veteran Suicide Royal Commission @roycommDVSRC hearing.

Unnecessary #auspol govt delays to URGENT LEGISLATIVE REFORM (ID'd in previous reviews) are contributing to the the HIGH #VETERAN SUICIDE RATE.

Thread ⬇️ 1/25
Background. Numerous media reports on the RC (& previously) have highlighted lengthy delays in @DVAAus claims processing times as a significant factor contributing to veteran suicides. Seriously injured/disabled veterans too oftem wait years for help. 2/25…
Chronic @DVAAus staff shortages have also for years been highlighted as a contributing factor, coupled with the federal govternment's over-reliance on expensive, inefficient, outsourced temporary labour hire. 3/25…

die Ampel hat beschlossen, die #Bundeswehr mit #bewaffneten #Drohnen auszustatten.

Drohnen sind unbemannte Fluggeräte, die vom Boden aus gesteuert werden.
Viele Kritiker sehen die Gefahr, dass die Bundeswehr die Drohnen so verwenden könnte, wie es die CIA getan hat

Die Drohnen dienen aber hauptsächlich der Aufklärung, also Beobachtung. Sie können länger in der Luft bleiben als Flugzeuge (Flugzeug kann zwar in der Luft betankt werden, aber Pilot muss mal aufs Klo, Essen usw. und hat kurze Aufmerksamkeitsspanne etc)
Flugzeuge können vom Gegner abgeschossen werden, das bedeutet, Menschenleben sind in Gefahr. Piloten können sich zwar oft mit dem Schleudersitz aus dem Flugzeug schiessen, aber je nach Gegner werden diese in der Luft beschossen oder nach Landung gefoltert. ISIS / IS-Staat

A thread on how LNP skullduggery impacts the #veteran space. This scenario specifically impacts injured veterans, medically discharged with serious physical & mental injuries & is related to the invalidity benefit they receive once deemed unable to continue serving. 1/a number..
About 7-8 years ago veterans discovered that the @ATO & @CommSuperCorp had been "withholding" amounts and "taxing" injured veteran invalidity benefits incorrectly. The worst cases were being overtaxed such that fortnightly in the hand was $250-$350 less than it should be...
A small core group of veterans read/researched through over one thousand pages of linked pieces of legislation before deciding they were correct. They then began campaigning. They discovered they could request individual determinations from the ATO - they did...2/may..

Jag har fått palliativ och livstidsförlängande vård i 1,5 år snart. Sjukvården och sjukvårdspersonalen har varit tillgänglig och fantastisk trots pandemi. Varma fina människor har tagit hand om mig och jag har känt mig prioriterad och priviligerad. Jag har hemsjukvård...
... i stor utsträckning och cytostatikabehandling på sjukhus. Bra tillgång till mediciner och behandlingar för hundratusentals kronor - allt från smärtlindrande till ångestdämpande och cytostatika, avancerad röntgen och täta blodprov.
Jag och familjen har tillgång till gratis samtalsstöd genom sjukvården och genom svenska kyrkan. Svensk vård är fantastisk.

2/ Last night this is what happened…

NOTE: the family wants to share their story to offer a glimpse of love ❤️ on all levels

For 3 years, Mark took care of Sharon, his #bride, as she battled breast #cancer. It relentlessly spread to her bones. He never stopped giving.
3/ She could tell he was spent and getting sick himself. “Mark, let’s get you to the doctor!” “Not until you are well, Sharon.” He remained laser focused on her every need. As she became weaker, he took her to get admitted yesterday.

1/4. Asking all White #Veterans to get on this page: thread.
Unless we police our own community, and rebrand “veteran” to exclude white supremacy, there is about to be a huge backlash on all #Veterans.

The public now increasingly see’s us all as Militant White Supremists.
2/4 The Solution?
1) Ostracize and shame, publicly, every #Veteran in your family and circle of friends who is a White Supremists. Be courageous: “out” even your White Supremists family members.

2)White Vets~ individually and collectively-should engage in a public and
3/4 protracted introspection of who we want to be as citizens, and develop an understanding of the lived experiences and culture of all #Veterans of color.

3) White #Veterans must use every tool at their disposal to elevate and validate the voices and experiences

The #maga #trumptreason terrorists planned to overturn the electoral vote confirmation, plotted to kill Speaker Pelosi and Mike Pence , they stormed the Capitol and destroyed government property in a failed coup attempt, they killed a Capitol Police officer,
they brought confederate flags to the Capitol among many other abhorrent acts. This is pure domestic terrorism led and encouraged by #trump and people like @joshhawleymo & @sentedcruz & people like @repralphnorman in the House of Representatives.
#republicans #treason #thisisamerica
There will be no talks of healing until they all acknowledge Joe Biden won the election, denounce white supremacy and all of the terrorists and their enablers are charged accordingly. The confederate flag is no better than a swastika.

#Biden does not support #abortion at the time of birth.

NY #Police Dept has not endorsed Trump's reelection.

Remove the names of slave owners, traitors, separatists, & domestic terrorists from the military bases. #america #blm

The Senate overwhelmingly passed a massive defense bill Thursday afternoon that includes the removal of Confederate names
from army bases and creates a possible showdown between Congress and President Donald Trump, who opposes renaming the bases.

The bill passed by a lopsided count of 86 to 14, well over the number required to override a presidential veto.
The bill, which authorizes $736.9 billion in military spending, includes a provision to form a commission on the names of military bases and rename bases over the next three years.

The @CityofCleveland Mental Health Response Advisory Committee met hours before @cory_shaffer's story was published about how @CLEpolice officers were disciplined in the Tanisha Anderson case. Nobody from the @cle_monitorteam or @USAttyHerdman's office told us about this.
The City of Cleveland Mental Health Response Advisory Committee (MHRAC) was created in 2015 as a mandate of the consent decree between @TheJusticeDept & @CityofCleveland. Nothing #MHRAC does remotely resembles oversight. We have not had a single discussion about Tanisha Anderson.
I have brought up Tanisha Anderson's death numerous times in an effort to prevent future tragedies. But the subject is off-limits. You have to ask why the #Cleveland #police department doesn't want to prevent a potential future in-custody death. #SayHerName #TanishaAnderson
