Former National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien (@robertcobrien) honored this evening alongside #LA Mayor Eric Garcetti (@ericgarcetti), Admiral Michelle Howard (@HonorOnline) and UPS (@UPS) by the National Museum of the Surface #Navy at the Battleship #IOWA (@ussiowa)… Image
Here are highlights from O’Brien’s speech, where he spoke to specific issues regarding the #Navy and measures our nation can take on the diplomatic and economic fronts to preserve our liberty in this new era of great power competition…
“First, we need a 355 ship Navy, and we need it now.   As former PACOM Commander Admiral Davidson stated, the next decade is the period of maximum danger for a conflict with China, especially over Taiwan.”

1/ Today, the #Wisconsin Republican legislature proposed eliminating the Constitutional offices of State Superintendent, Secretary of State, & Treasurer. What follows is a longish 🧵 I've meant to write for some time, addressing the utter contempt today's @wisgop has for voters.
2/ What sparks it is this piece of flaming-hot horseshit from @shaesortwell, from the @jsonline story today by @mollybeck: jsonline.com/story/news/pol…
3/ The short version of the thread is, the GOP has spent a decade doing things like weakening SoState, Treasurer, and Superintendent. Then Sortwell has the gall to use the lack of responsibility and authority those officers have as a reason to amend the constitution.

#Vaccines are Available

#MonoclonalAntibody Rx is Available

Vulnerable Profiles are Known

But #Democrats are Pushing VACCINE MANDATES

Why?

#Maine
#Washington
#Oregon
#NewMexico
#Michigan
#Minnesota
#Wisconsin
#Nevada
#Iowa
#NewHampshire
#Colorado
#Pennsylvania
#Virginia
Democrats say we need the VACCINE MANDATEs so we can Re-Open

But many places have been OPEN

And it is only the Democrats that are talking about SHUTTING DOWN again this Winter

So...
Maybe the Vaccine Mandates are NOT about the Virus

Maybe the Democrats are playing a Different Game

Maybe they are looking to Shift Blame for the Damage done by Shutdowns

Maybe they want to Blame the Un-Vaccinated for their Gross Mismanagement

@GVDBossche Herd immunity is not happening with these vaccines, even the "experts" now admit.

Instead, herd mentality appears to be leading to a thinning of the herd: "natural selection of individuals capable of resisting C-19 disease" ImageImage

88 #Georgia GOP operatives used lists created by True the Vote out of #Texas to challenge the votes of 364,000 Georgians.

True the Vote's major funder is #Wisconsin's Bradley Foundation, the new #KochBros, who've dedicated $2 billion to right-wing causes.
True the Vote's 88 Georgia proxies had originally challenged the counting of these voters' ballots in December, just three weeks before the Georgia Senate run-off race. ajc.com/politics/eligi…
Many of these voters had already mailed in their ballots and were unaware of the attempt to prevent their counting.

THREAD: #Wisconsin CALL TO ACTION: If you believe our schools need more funding for special education (they do — the state currently only provides 29 percent of needed funding) please read on and call or email your legislator…
The Joint Finance Committee has rejected the governor’s budget (which is their right) and is going to submit their own budget to the full Legislature. They are doing that work right now...
Please reach out to your legislators and tell them we need more money for local school districts to cover the costs of special education. The lack of support hurts all kids, not just kids in special education. This is not a partisan issue and they need to hear from us now...

Reporter warns far-right Republicans may be close to achieving a 'radical rewrite' of the Constitution rawstory.com/reporter-warns… Since 2014 the Convention of States Project and other groups including #ALEC have helped lawmakers in 15 states call for a new constitutional convention
The Convention of States Project is led by a prominent right-wing activist ― former Tea Party Patriots founder Mark Meckler, who is also the current acting CEO of Parler, and a member of the #CNP Council of National Policy's Gold Circle #ShadowNetwork Image
According to The Center for Media and Democracy, lawmakers proposed 42 Convention of States resolutions in at least 24 new states this year. Article V of the US Constitution states that a constitutional convention could be convened if 2/3 of the states - 34 states call for it. Image

@freedomsbride 1) Back when I was in my #FreshmanYear in college, I had been going to this wonderful Christian Campus Ministry Center. A few months later, a friend (who was older than me), invited me to join this Christian Clown Troupe, that was run through the Center. So, I gave it a try! It

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)
