2 weeks after 1st publicized case, only 4384 have been tested NATIONWIDE; doctors are frustrated: “we were told, ‘If the patient doesn’t have a travel history & doesn’t need to be admitted to the hospital, don’t bother calling; we’re not going to test.’”…
Note that using this standard to deny testing means health care officials are actually ASSISTING THE DISEASE TO SPREAD in the community by denying carriers of the knowledge they need to self-quarantine.

In the end this will overwhelm health care workers.
The testing situation is "so bad" that Marc Lipsitch, a Harvard epidemiology prof, says health officials & journalists should not report "new cases" but "newly discovered cases":

"to remove the impression that the number of cases reported has any bearing on the actual number.”

Let me tell y’all my thoughts around #ElizabethWarren suspending her campaign. Sit back and relax because this might take a while.
I am heartbroken that yet again, misogyny wins. I’d love to have a world my daughter can grow up in where women really can do anything.
I grew up thinking all I could be when I grew up was a wife and mom and nothing else. I wasn’t expected to go to college by my family. While being a wife and mom are good, they are not necessary. I want my daughter to know she can do other things too.

I don’t support a woman just because she’s a woman. I support a woman who dismantles not upholds patriarchy. I’m a registered NY Independent to the left of Dems.

Regardless of your politics, listen to the many women - & some men - who are hurt & furious re #ElizabethWarren
I know the difference between supporting a woman simply for being a woman and supporting instead a woman who dismantles patriarchy and the oppressions it brings. That’s why I wrote this essay on women and power
Whatever political differences you have with #ElizabethWarren, unless the US reckons with the fact it has a sexual predator as President and that misogyny played a role in the way Warren was treated during her campaign, this country will miss a vital chance to reckon w/patriarchy

BREAKING: #ElizabethWarren is leaving the race. I am in mourning for our nation. Her exit is clear evidence of the level of trauma we have suffered over the last 3yrs; causing us to cling to the familiar, stunting our capacity to dream, limiting faith.…
We MUST remove Trump. Our democracy will not hold another 4 yrs of the Trump admin, GOP Senate and white nationalist judges. The lesson of #SuperTuesday is this: To win, we MUST heed the pain of those who’ve borne the brunt of and are VOTING in the context of Trump’s terror!
REMEMBER: In the middle of terror, dreaming becomes nearly impossible.When terrorized, you literally have ONE GOAL: Make it stop.

Does #Bernie not know that what pulled millions of Chinese people out of extreme poverty were the 1978 economic reforms that introduced CAPITALIST market principles into China's socialist economy?

I mean jeez...

It's not Bernie's goals that are the problem, we Democrats want a more even playing field, we want good healthcare for all Americans, we want a higher minimum wage & affordable high-quality education and childcare. These are goals we all should aspire to, but can we please:
understand that it is not capitalism that is the problem. Capitalism is flawed, it takes work to reign in, but it has pulled billions out of extreme poverty. Just as it did in China.

I am supporting #ElizabethWarren who gets this.

Can a woman win? How will #Warren beat Trump?

These are two questions I hear while canvassing, sincerely from undecided voters.

Also from sexist pundits <cough, @Morning_Joe>.

Here’s what I know:
2/ #WomenWin
The 2018 blue wave elected a record number of women to Congress.

HRC won the popular vote by millions.

HRC lost the electoral college by only 70,000 votes across 3 states.

That’s not bc she’s a woman.

3/ #WomenWin

Not all women will vote bc it’s time for a female president—although it is.

However, women are more reliable voters than men.

Women are also 60%-80% of campaign volunteers.

Need a ground game? (Answer: Yes.) You need women.

Let that sink in.

I would really like to support #ElizabethWarren. Her platform and campaign match up with my values and interests, and I believe she can defeat Tr*mp, especially after her debate performance in Nevada. 1/
Which is why I am so frustrated that @ewarren has not engaged w/ Cherokee & other Indigenous writers, scholars, & activists who have clearly & repeatedly explained why her Cherokee ancestry claim and DNA stunt do continuing harm, & why her apology is insufficient. 2/
@ewarren Cherokee activist and writer @RebeccaNagle even went so far as to *script an apology for her*. 3/

1/ “Even if a new president proposes sweeping reforms, Congress would block or severely #weaken them. In #foreignpolicy, however, a new president could reshape the world with a few strokes of the pen. @StephenKinzer
@stephenkinzer 2/ “A president could bring the U.S. back into the Iran nuclear deal; lift sanctions on Venezuela; offer to begin peace talks with Russia & China; pull American troops out of the ME; stop promoting the overthrow of foreign governments @StephenKinzer
@stephenkinzer 3/ 3 candidates are fully wedded to the paradigm of #conflict & #confrontation that shapes American #foreignpolicy: #JoeBiden, #AmyKlobuchar, & #PeteButtigieg.

#NevadaCaucuses today and #SuperTuesday is 03/03 (same as my prelim defense 😬). #ElizabethWarren has done extremely well in Nevada (starting by destroying Bloomberg…) but i wanted to take a minute to say something about why #Warren2020 is my first choice…
I was for Bernie in 2016, because he was the only person out there with the Big Hope For Better that i genuinely believe will help us all. I'm for #Warren2020, this time, because she has that same big structural change energy, but also clear paths to getting it done. Nevada has…
huge issues w/ class disparity, but Nevada also has huge issues w/ gender and race and disability accessibility. #ElizabethWarren has a clear understanding of how all those things fit together, & exactly what she wants to do about them. And that's true at national & local levels

Elizabeth Warren strikes me as one of those kind hardworking girls in high school who suddenly got detention one day when she punched somebody who was mean to the sad kid. Did this happen in your high school? Very "Betsy, what's gotten into you?" energy from the teacher. Respect!
You know these girls? Like very excellent member of any study group, always had some surprisingly good snacks, never crowded you in the bathroom when you needed the mirror for a lip gloss intervention, but one day the class was like "WAIT WHAT DID LIZZY JUST DO TO CHAD?!?"
And like in retrospect you knew she had it in her, you'd seen it before, like she did NOT tolerate it when other kids tried to steal the graphing calculator when you needed it and she was always nice and not condescending when you were like "what is math" but wow. Impressive.

I'm deeply disappointed in #ElizabethWarren, someone I've praised repeatedly during this election.

Doing this as #Bernie surges weeks before Iowa doesn't feel right.
Let me expand:

I respect and like #Warren and have said nothing but positive things about her campaign.

Whatever conversation she and #Bernie had, my issue is with the timing. I've done politics for 20 years, including two presidentials, and I recognize a low blow.
And one last point: Anyone who knows my career and my work with Hillary knows how hard I've fought sexism in politics.

This isn't about the conversation they had, it's about the timing of releasing it, which is clearly designed to damage #Bernie.

Who does that help??

I admire and respect #ElizabethWarren

I admire and respect #BernieSanders

I think #Bernie's bold call for a political revolution is the ONLY approach to the danger we face from an emboldened right and a meek Dem establishment.

Things will get more intense...
As the intensity and negativity ratchets up, which it inevitably will, let's remember that Warren and Sanders supporters have a tremendous amount in common.

We're allies and friends in this existential fight for our progressive values.


I'll be honest: I tweeted this not having seen the CNN story about Warren and #Bernie.

Which makes my point even more salient: supporters of both candidates have so much in common. Let's be unified in 2020.

Bottom line: I believe #Bernie is our best candidate to take on Trump.

Today, after @JulianCastro’s news, discussion by mostly non-Indigenous ppl who still support #ElizabethWarren’s DNA political ploy was again met w dissent from Indigenous scholars.

I, an #Indigenous scientist, remind that Warren is NOT Native American:… 1/
Any estimation of Warren’s supposed “Native American” ancestry is based on statistical INFERENCE reliant on % similarity w short chromosome segment that recently admixed Indigenous individuals from Central & South America happen to also share. And it’s poorly sampled (N=37). 2/
But she’s not claiming to have a Central/South American ancestor, is she? (Let’s also consider WHY people want to claim US Indigenous and not, say, Indigenous heritage with groups south of the border?AeroMexico’s farcical ad may touch on the issue: .) 3/

#FollowTheMoney of the #GreenScam 👇

Goldman Sachs is shilling for the implementation of a #CarbonTax.

Democrats and Presidential candidates such as Biden, Buttigieg, and Andrew YANG, some RINOs, and many leftists also want some form of carbon tax from the middle class.
#Warren2020 Elizabeth Warren also supports Goldman Sachs’ carbon tax plan.

The same #ElizabethWarren who criticizes Goldman Sachs and their money supports making Goldman Sachs richer.…

This person's fiance' lives in the US and is a sick, SICK PEDO.

Now, I also want to know why this person, who appears to be a UK citizen, is raising money for #ElizabethWarren's 2020 Presidential campaign.
Here's a thread about Challenor's PEDO boyfriend, who has since deleted their sick and degenerate tweets:

I happened to find a cached version of one of their threads on Thread Reader that was still available. It's really sick and stomach turning, so just be prepared if you choose to read it.

(Tweeting, by popular demand) The latest report about partisan polarization is freakin' amazing. It’s also really long. I’ve been digging into it for days now, cross-referencing with other data, asking: Who has the best chance to defeat Trump in 2020?
With the usual caveat that I will vote for any of them (I’d vote for a blue balloon with a face drawn on it), I’m now convinced the nomination needs to go to #ElizabethWarren. The data are screaming at us.
I know this thread is a lot to absorb, but I really hope you’ll read it.
1. Many are decided, but not enough. The PRRI report says there’s a very healthy number of voters (37%) who are #votebluenomatterwho people. And this is way more than the 28% who say they’ll vote for Trump no matter what.

Non-Natives often think that b/c i go after #ElizabethWarren's #pretendianism (I wrote the book "NATIVE AMERICAN DNA: Tribal Belonging and the False Promise of Genetic Science") that i must be FOR one of the other US prez candidates. No. i'm against settler-colonial occupation.
and yes, it should not need to be said that it's a settler-colonial occupying government, no matter who is at the helm. they all buy into the settler state as their horizon of freedom. including as far as i can tell, Indigenous politicians.
FYI i also don't debate who is a "settler" and who is not. it's kind of like attempting to definitively categorize races. we have 400 years of that misguided scientific project. we're all capable of shoring up the settler-colonial project. i focus on the system.

#ElizabethWarren math doesn't add up on Medicare4All. There isn't a $30 trillion pot of gold so like Bernie has said, TAXES will go up. She wants to talk about cost with no receipts, but I want to talk about all this extra 💰 coming out my paycheck. Stop the deflection games Liz.
PS- Unless you have seen my paystubs, keep your funky ass comments about costs to yourself. If I'm not going to accept Warren's talking point, what makes you think you regurgitating it will yield different results? WARREN can tell me the tax increase and I'll do my own math.
Since y'all love to talk shit w/o watching the full video, here's the exact part you say I didn't mention. Bernie talks about premiums, Warren talks about COSTS. As I said, EYE want to talk about taxes.
PS- Full video w/captions:

1- Warren's ancestors had many opportunities to claim to be Cherokee but they didn't. They didn't even claim it when they were living smack dab in the middle of the Cherokee Nation (as squatters.)
One member of her family actually claimed to be white even when her husband and children were filing their Dawes claim as Choctaw. #ElizabethWarren's ancestors were not Native and never pretended to be.
That is unusual in false Cherokee claims. Usually the white family has a history of trying to get land or money due the Cherokees. Warren's family does not have that history. If, and that's a big if, Warren's family believes they are Cherokee, it's a new belief.

What school board policy on pregnant teachers looked like at midcentury in PA.

Source: Republican and Herald (Pottsville PA) 05 March 1943.

#twitterstorians #histsex #ElizabethWarren #PregnancyDiscrimination
An example of the lengths school boards would go to in order to push out pregnant teachers and teachers seeking maternity leave at midcentury in PA. School boards would describe these women as incompetent and neglectful.

Source: The Express (Lock Haven PA) 27 Feb 1943
The 1943 PA Supreme Court decision created precedent and allowed other school boards to dismiss pregnant teachers on incompetence grounds.

1 of 25 (sorry; not my fault)

In the beginning, I thought that maybe #ElizabethWarren was a good alternative to #BernieSanders.

But the more I learned about her the more I became disappointed and realized that that the only choice is #BernieSanders2020.
2 of 25

- #ElizabethWarren opposed gay marriage until 2010; Sanders has been a life-time supporter.

- She does not call out the fossil fuel industry disinformation campaign

- She does not support banning fracking (queue Republicans and fossil fuel industry cheering)
3 of 25

- #ElizabethWarren voted for Ben Carson to head HUD; later flipped after backlash from constituents.

- After Donna Brazil book came out, Warren immediately agreed that the 2016 primary was rigged by DNC. A few days later she flipped her position.

SHE'S HERE! #ElizabethWarren takes the stage. #theMajorityRules
Tune in NOW:
When #ElizabethWarren was urged to run for Senate, she was also told she couldn't win.

"If a woman doesn't run, I guarantee a woman will never win. You won't get what you won't fight for." — @ewarren #theMajorityRules
@ewarren .@ewarren made sure she did two things every day:
— She found a group of people to talk about what's important and why she's in the fight.
— Every time she met a little girl, she'd tell her "Hello, my name is Elizabeth, and I'm running for Senate because that's what girls do."
