In November 1923, Adolf Hitler organized and led the Nazi party in the Beer Hall Putsch in an attempted coup to overthrow the German government. It failed resulting in the deaths of 16 Nazi party members and 4 police officers. The coup group was comprised of 2000 Nazis.

1/
Hitler fled from Munich into the countryside, but was caught and arrested 2 days later. He was charged with treason. The trial lasted 24 days resulting in his conviction. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison. He only served 9 months. He dictated Mein Kampf while imprisoned.
2/
After these events, Hitler changed his tactics. He started to spread his hate speech through the media of the day. He also traveled the German countryside holding “rallies” to garner support for his far right nationalist agenda.

The Guiness Book of World Records states the youngest child ever conceived was 21 weeks and 2 days. Scientifically, the ability 2 breathe on your own is the test of life. Legally same standards. The people interrupt the SCOTUS at dinner and home because they used NEITHER standard
There is no argument that can be made from a legal standpoint to force the elimination of #RoeVsWade. The SCOTUS ignored the science and blindly spoke only of "right to privacy". This right IS of importance and nullifying it for political means goes beyond Abortion. But I digress
Women have effectively been told they do NOT have a say in what happens to their body. Well....technically. They have been told them have no choices ONLY IN RED STATES. You only need to be forced to be an incubator if you CHOOSE it. Your choice comes only by voting Blue. PERIOD

🧵1/ This #IndependenceDay, let’s talk about how to keep our democracy. This is not hyperbolic—right *NOW* the GOP is enacting an *ongoing* coup 50+ years in the making. #53PickUp #VoteBlue
2/ Odds are you don’t have a strong understanding of US civics because our government didn’t *WANT* you to understand it. The GOP’s most reliable voting block are uneducated whites. They want it easier to dupe voters with diversions & propaganda. 🧵:
3/ It’s also easier to fool people into thinking the Democrats are purposely or incompetently messing things up if your audience doesn’t know how civics works. The GOP & enemy countries have massive & effective propaganda networks to turn public opinion. Image

Can confirm. Good thing it’s only 107 with the heat index right now. #BetoForTexas #GregAbbottFailedTexasAgain
Our power has thankfully been restored after about 90 minutes. I hate that this is a constant source of worry for Texans.

The worst Democrat is better than the best Republican. This includes Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Last Thursday, Manchin sent a letter to SecEd Miguel Cardona outlining his frustration that the Department has not yet announced grant awards for the Upward Bound program.
The Upward Bound program is part of what's known as the TRIO program, stuudent services programs in the United States designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. If you went to college + were broke like me, you likely = TRIO.
Funded by DOE, TRIO includes eight programs targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs.

The worst Democrat is better than the best Republican. For all the grief the #CancelStudentDebt crowd has given Democrats for not going far enough and saying they'll vote GOP if nothing happens? Welp here's what the other side has to offer for ya.
Last week, a group of 24 House Republicans led by Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI) sent a letter to President Biden voicing their concerns about his possible decision to forgive student loans.
In the letter, the members argued “the Executive Branch has no authority to unilaterally forgive federal student.” They also asked about the status of the memo from the Department of Education proposed in 2021 that has not yet been published.

🇺🇸 Let's spend a minute honestly talking about President Biden's approval ratings, and the reason they continue to slump: Democrats.

🇺🇸 You heard me right: DEMOCRATS

🇺🇸 Hear me out:
🇺🇸 In poll after poll, the president's approvals have been dropping off because more and more Democrats are disappointed in his performance.

🇺🇸 Lately, about 75% of Democrats approve of the job he's doing, down from 95% at the start of his presidency.
🇺🇸 Republicans' disdain for Biden and our nation have remained predictably static, about 95%, presumably because he really does go to church each Sunday, and actually practices what is being preached ...

Scare article from Rolling Stone to make you angry at Manchin and Sinema for "accepting" money from "Republican" donors.

Even taking this at face value, it doesn't mean what Rolling Stone wants you to think it means.

First, Republican candidates are traditionally very well-founded. It makes sense for Democrats to accept campaign money from anyone who'll give it.

Second, any money a "Republican" donor gives to a Democrat is money they didn't give to a Republican, and that's a Good Thing.

2/8
Third, assume "Republican" donors give money to politicians who'll support their interests. The only reason to give money to Dems is if they think Republicans aren't going to be in charge. If they thought Republicans would run the Senate in 2024, they wouldn't fund Dems.

For the past several legislative sessions, @GovernorTomWolf and PA House and Senate Dems have proposed solutions to both phase out the gas tax and fix the allocations, while still funding both PennDOT road and bridge projects and the state police.
pahouse.com/otten?utm_sour…
The @PAGOP majority has repeatedly rejected those proposals.

Want change in PA for the firs time in decades? #VoteBlueIn2022
@RepDanielle
To express your concerns about PA's roads and request that this year’s budget allocates some of our more than $8 billion in surplus funds for road and bridge repairs, write to Rep Tim Hennessey, Chair of the House Transportation Committee

Rick Scott and the Republicans are raving lunatics. They want to get rid of social security and Medicare. That will make a huge quantity of elderly people who live in society homeless but just about every single person who lives in a nursing home countrywide lives there due to
Medicare/medicaid and social security. So, if you stop paying for these elderly people, in some cases, don't even get out of bed, what are they planning on doing with them? And then you have every person who works for these nursing homes, from the administrator to the
Housekeepers who will lose their jobs. Yes, there are jobs available but you have some people who have worked as CNAs and nurses all of their lives. Are they now supposed to go work at McDonald's getting paid minimum wage? They are literally about to create a huge majority of

🧵What happened to my neighborhood?

Since my retirement from the Military I have struggled to transition to civilian life. With the rise of Trumpism & the Covid19 pandemic the struggle has become more difficult.
As a Veteran, I am saddened, angry & disappointed all at the same time. 24 years active duty Army & 6 years as a Federal Employee, I fear for the future of our Democracy. I question my service & often wonder if the sacrifices over 30 years were all worth it?
I’ve had to deal with neighbors who have latched on to a toxic ideology that doesn’t include respect for others or just common human decency.

Living amongst people who believe the twisted narratives & routinely retaliate against those who don’t.

If you vote @GOP and do not like being lied to, then wake up and smell the coffee people because here is #truth :
1) Politicians like @laurenboebert and @Jim_Jordan keep telling you Joe Biden controls gas prices. But they are up GLOBALLY, not just domestically. Image
2) The party u voted for because u believe in them has people like @SenTedCruz that is CONFIRMED to gone to Cancun when a winter storm left Texans exposed to the elements. People DIED to include a 10 year old. The politician seen MOST during that time? Democrat @BetoORourke
3) When #COVID19 reared its ugly head, the @GOP had a chance to show competence under Trump. Instead, they claimed it was like flu, would go away in a couple months, and told governors sounding the alarm to:

You know what is insanity? Watching Republicans destroy this country cycle after cycle, to the point democracy itself is on the brink, & privileged people like you threatening to withhold your vote. There is only 1 pro-America team in town & it is the Democrats. #VoteBlueIn2022
Election after election, there is always some privileged fool with their cynical bullshit about no one earning their vote. They are part of the vote suppression caucus & they're doing the tacit dirty work of the GOP. if you're not #votingBluein2022, you are part of the problem.
I write about elections across the world for a living where people risk life & limb to exercise the right to vote, hoping that one day, they will get their democracy dividend. And so they show up to vote.

This is the sound of entitlement talking ⬇️
