In the 2020 general election #Wisconsin has ONE decision... Who will be the next president of the United States?

Get registered, get educated, and #VOTE!

If Trump's recent actions have not caused enough concern, here's how his policies are hurting WISCONSIN...
Trump's improvised and failing trade policies have real-life consequences for Wisconsin. Yet Trump doesn’t seem to care much about the fate of Wisconsin farmers, manufacturers, and laborers insisting he is doing a great job as president.…
Trump pledged to use his business & negotiating skills to end trade practices that have hurt farmers... as a result, Wisconsin is LOSING FARMS!

From January to July, WI lost 491 farms. At that rate, the Dairy State could lose 735 dairy farms this year, a decline of 9%.

I don't trust polls, they're not that accurate if they are before an election because the pollsters have to figure out if you're going to vote or not. The polls that really count are the #ExitPolls—and in #Wisconsin, #Pennsylvania & #Michigan, #HillaryClinton won the exit polls.
So what happened in #Wisconsin if you had a 4% victory in the #ExitPolls? How did Trump win? The answer is, you tell an exit pollster how you voted, but you don't know if your vote was counted.…
You don't know if the machine kicked out your vote. You don't know that if you filled out a #ProvisionalBallot and it was disqualified.

#Trump didn’t win the last election in #Wisconsin. If you look at the University of Wisconsin study of what happened in 2016, about 50,000 people couldn’t vote because they changed the ID laws at the last second. So Trump’s margin was BS.…
By the way, in a 100 years of records, there hasn’t been anyone in #Wisconsin who’s ever tried to vote under someone else’s name. It’s a crime that doesn’t happen. The real crime is preventing people from voting. Think it can’t happen in 2020? Think again!…

I was at @Target & saw a @Starbucks ad for Absolute Dragonfruit. For a hot second I thought they were selling alcoholic beverages in a suburban Target-Starbucks at 3pm & my immediate next thought was “Moms need to get lit too.”
I quickly realized that probably wasn’t actually the case, but in #Wisconsin, who knows? The ad looked like this one, but I just stole this picture off the Internet.
FWIW @absolutvodka doesn’t spell their name that way, but clearly I associate that word + fruit/food name with vodka. Excellent job, @ABSOLUTvodka_US, excellent job.

Some strong-ish #TuesdayThoughts about the state of our electorate -- and one state in particular: The battle-grounder, #Wisconsin

The Badger State has been gerrymandered to shreds by the anti-American #GOPTraitors

Think that's an overstatement?

Consider this

👇🏽 (thread)

In the 2018 Midterms, #Democrats won EVERY statewide election, yet because of gerrymandering lost 63 of the 99 state assembly races.


When Republicans redrew the map in 2011, the numbers show that the current map is even far more tilted toward the GOP than the previous map — and all but ensures Republican control of the state Assembly in “good” years or “bad” for the GOP.

@breakingbrown discussed #Baltimore as recently as last week when there was a weekend of unexplained violence. What’s happening in #Baltimore is not new to #ADOS.
In America, #ADOS are perpetual outsiders; that stops now. We’re not outsiders. Enslavement created the foundations for the economies of the western world by making cotton “King”. #Reparations is the least America can do for our ancestors’ contribution.
Let’s talk about #ADOS cities like #Atlanta where the data paints a picture of a group that has been continually barred from all means of economic advancement, agency, and autonomy. @Bloomberg

A college dropout oversee scholars at the Smithsonian Institution?? This can't end well for Smithsonian, just look at what he did to #Wisconsin🙄
"Trump appoints disgraced ex-GOP Gov @ScottWalker to oversee scholars at the Smithsonian Institution"…
"Scott Walker says he unsealed his records from college: False. The circumstances around Gov. @ScottWalker's withdrawal from Marquette University were murky enough to arouse questions"…
And he got another new job yesterday...
"Former Wisconsin Gov. @ScottWalkerr (R) has accepted a full-time job running the conservative group Young America’s Foundation"

Thread! CW: police violence

Friends, you know I don’t share violent content often but I’m sharing video of a #MadisonWI black disabled high school student who was assaulted by police. Read the thread for the longer narrative courtesy of @AboutFreedomInc
Earlier this week, a Black high school student with a mental disability, who attends West High School, was failed by @MMSDschools and assaulted by @madisonpolice officers.
West High School staff called the cops on the Black disabled student (I haven’t heard why). The student left and went home. The cops came to the student’s home and violently arrested them. The student was cooperative, but that did not stop the violence.

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4

Thread, by famous Trump real-time fact checker @ddale8. @MEPFuller had noted anodyne national media coverage of Trump’s campaign rally in Green Bay last night. #Wisconsin media, if anything, did worse.
Here’s a story in @journalsentinel, the largest paper in Wisconsin, to which @MollyBeck & @patrickdmarley contributed. These are competent observers of state politics. But to them, the brazen lies with which Trump filled his speech were not a story.…
Trump’s denunciation of something he called the “collusion delusion” was a story. Other claims were reported w/out comment. Political strategists & professors were quoted, as was one rally attendee. Bernie Sanders was mentioned - his campaign had bought an ad for the occasion.

.#Wisconsin story. @JMilesColeman worked with @DecisionDeskHQ to break down this week’s state Supreme Court election. They will get to turnout next week. Democratic-backed candidate had won decisively in a race two years ago; maps here suggest what was different this time.
Context on the Neubauer-Hagedorn results above, by @BruceMurphyMKE. Points to @DanielBice for retweeting this, since one of Murphy’s arguments is that this campaign reflected diminished influence of @journalsentinel, Wisconsin’s largest newspaper.
Lastly, @SykesCharlie offers his take on how Hagedorn pulled out a narrow victory despite being abandoned by prominent GOP-leaning business groups: It came down to self-identifying Christians buying his claim to be a victim of religious persecution.

.#Wisconsin story. Good rundown by @St_Verburg of ideas for addressing water pollution from large farms. Now that @GovEvers has replaced Scott Walker, who did not care about the environment, some of them are even coming from Republicans in the Legislature.
...And this is why such ideas are needed. Every year around this time you can drive through the farm country around Madison and see rivers of manure, spread over frozen ground and carried with snowmelt into locals streams & lakes.
This winter, which has had heavy snowfall, will see heavy farm runoff. This is just farmers exporting the pollution their operations generate for other people to deal with. Via @yaharaproject — a documentary about the watershed around Madison.

Thread on local #racist violence & what we do now:
Recently a white male school teacher abused an 11 year old black girl student, ripping out her braids. This occurred in #MadisonWI.…
I am out of town & unable to attend the community meeting about it today, but the anti-black violence & hatred in Madison is increasingly palpable to me, as someone who has lived there less than 2 years.
@AboutFreedomInc has been fighting to get cops out of schools for over a year now. Their youth squad attends every school board meeting to share stories & ask @MMSDschools to invest in youth of color & youth with disabilities not police.

Trump’s deal with Foxconn
- Bloomberg Businessweek…
This article has so much information packed into it, I’d like to shine some light on who’s responsible for getting us into debt. And also Scott Walker has over promised to get re-elected.
I’m guessing he’s not done with his political agenda.
1) “Foxconn has a history of overpromising and underdelivering on major deals.”
Instead of doing the leg work and taking time to look into Foxconn, Wisconsin GOP decided that they would just their gut.
“When asked if the state looked at Foxconn’s history”

.#Wisconsin story. The #Foxconn boondoggle, by @AustinCarr. I fear @GovEvers & his successors will be doing damage control on this Scott Walker legacy for many years to come.
More on the #Foxconn boondoggle -- I don't disagree with anything @SykesCharlie says here. We should be clear, though, that although Trump does a cameo at the end of this story, this massive corporate welfare project was a Scott Walker production.
Right from the start, Walker as governor took the view that state government was there to serve business: to cut their taxes, make labor and environmental regulations easy to live with (or dodge), and ladle out incentives with a smile in exchange for the promise of jobs.

Thread. #Wisconsin story via @jessieopie about aftermath of a Republican campaign gimmick. GOP legislators, supporting a lawsuit that would declare all of Obamacare unconstitutional, pledged state legislation protecting people w/pre-existing conditions if legal gambit failed.
They are now seeking to negotiate state legislation with new Democratic @GovEvers, whose response has been to suggest a bill that would do everything Obamacare does in Wisconsin if Republicans’ lawsuit to repeal Obamacare nationally succeeds.
Republicans in the legislature are outraged. They want to save their seats, not Obamacare. Why can’t @GovEvers see that and just, you know, work with them? This is headed for a bill Republicans will pass, Democrats will say (accurately) is meaningless, and Evers will veto.
