.@WVGovernor, @EricJTarr4WV, @MooreCapitoWV, @claymarsh, @AyneAmjad. #WestVirginia just ignored #WestVirginia's own health advice. Here is a statement from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources from a few years ago. 1/ oeps.wv.gov/harm_reduction…
"Data collected by the West Virginia Health Statistics Center showed that West Virginia ranked #1 in drug overdose deaths in 2015, with a rate of 41.5 deaths per 100,000 people. Deaths attributed to opioids, namely heroin and fentanyl, are on the rise in the state." 2/
"Additionally, West Virginia currently ranks #1 in the country in incidence of acute hepatitis B and hepatitis C." 3/

So, @WVGovernor @claymarsh @AyneAmjad @EricJTarr4WV have blood on their hands. Syringe exchange works. It prevents HIV transmission. It does not increase drug use or crime. That's the evidence. 1/
I mean really, what the fuck? #WestVirginia is in the midst of an opioid and HIV epidemic and these bozos decide that gutting harm reduction in the state is their go-to strategy. It's inexcusable nonsense. 2/
And @WVGovernor @claymarsh @AyneAmjad @EricJTarr4WV are ready to flush millions of dollars down the toilet. The costs of HIV, HCV treatment alone mount into the millions. This is on them. Every cent. Every dollar. Every death. 3/ wvpolicy.org/saving-lives-a…

There are heroic people in #WestVirginia who are fighting to keep the state from more HIV and HCV infections, endocarditis, from more overdoses, sickness and death, but let's be clear @EricJTarr4WV is a public health menace. This bill will destroy needle exchange in the state. 1/
Watered down by @MooreCapitoWV Judiciary Committee, the bill going for full passage now hobbles syringe exchange in the state, making it supremely difficult to do the hard work of HIV prevention and harm reduction. 2/
Let's be 100% clear. @EricJTarr4WV has not a shred of scientific evidence to support his opposition to syringe exchange programs (SEPs). They prevent HIV. They do not promote drug use or increase crime. Full stop. Stop the bullshit. 3/

Dear @BenSalango, In a recent economic analysis, the cost of treating the 35 new HIV cases related to intravenous drug use (IDU) in Kanawha County in 2020 is expected to run nearly $17 million. 1/
The cost of providing curative treatment for the 635 cases of chronic hepatitis C (HCV) associated with IDU in 2019 in Kanawha County is likely to be as much as $44.5 million. 2/
As you plan to effectively neuter harm reduction in Kanawha County, you must face the fact that you will add to these millions by your one single act. 3/

OK. #epitwitter, #MedTwitter, anyone who cares about #HIV or #opioids. Something bad is happening in #WestVirginia. Very bad. The state has been hit hard with both HIV and the opioid epidemic. Local communities have responded, but politicians once again are screwing up. Badly. 1/
Thank god for @LaurenMPeace who's been covering the story. Her first piece? What happened when Cabell-Huntington & Kanawha-Charleston Health Depts suspended their needle exchanges under pressure from local TV stations, local politicians. HIV exploded. 2/ mountainstatespotlight.org/2020/12/15/whe…
But let's be clear. Some politicians, including the mayor of Charleston and its police chief want to the right thing. 3/ mountainstatespotlight.org/2021/01/13/cha…

I know no one’s surprised, but we need to call it out anyway. Today the Republican Party sealed their legacy w/Trumpism. They’re now & forever the party of racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, domestic terrorism, conspiracy theorists & fact deniers. They own this. #GOPCowards
Republicans of conscience, now is the time. There’s no “saving” your party at this point. Now is your fleeting opportunity to come over to the right side of history & join the Dems. @SenBillCassidy @SenatorBurr @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @MittRomney @BenSasse @SenToomey
For the other 43 - the #GOPCowards - us REAL patriots will see to it that you’re stripped of all power & your big $ donors drop you.

To the REAL patriots: FLOOD YOUR SENATORS’ PHONES. Tell them how sickened you are, as one of their constituents. Contact info to follow (thread)

China should put China 1st.
Germany should put Germany 1st.
Ukraine should put Ukraine 1st.
Seeing a pattern?
If a country cannot manage its own affairs, how can it manage the affairs of others. You cannot "love thy neighbor" while treating your family like shit. #AmericaLast
@congressdotgov @HouseFloor @SenateFloor and @WhiteHouse betrayed American citizens. They betray America's trust. They are NOT complicit! They fail[ed] to comply with the Declaration & Constitution by which this country was founded. They act with purposeful disregard.
States are willful accomplices to the United States Federal Government.

ALL of America's private citizens and friends need to request our US Military cleanse our government! @USArmy #USArmy @USMC #USMC @USNavy #USNavy @usairforce #USAF @DeptofDefense #DoD @US_SpaceCom #SpaceX

Richard “Bigo” Barnett of #Alabama has been identified as part of a pro-@realDonaldTrump group, 2A NWA Stand and is a self-described "white nationalist" who used to be an emergency medical technician in #Tennessee. Image

PETITION FOR TEXAS SOVEREIGN ACTION

Dear @GregAbbott_TX As NBCs of the United States for the preservation of the Union we petition you to call up the Texas Constitutional Militia, resubmit your case to SCOTUS, occupy all assets of Chinese nationalists suspected of high treason!
With the Constitutional Militia Mustered, SCOTUS will hear you case! and the other Patriot States will take similar actions to preserve these United States of America as a government of the people, by the people and for the people with the right to 1 legal vote per 1 voter.
Never has #TEXAS had a cause so just and righteous, so patriotic, so universal. For as Christ teaches, when we see America beaten up on the side of the road, we cannot pass by like the hypocrite and pretend his wounds do not need caring for. (cf. Luke 10:25-37)
