Alice #Schwarzer hat die Verwandlung von einer Ikone der Frauenbewegung zu einer rechten Verschwörungserzählerin abgeschlossen. Und wie die radikalsten Elemente in der #GOP wirft sie Kritiker*innen an ihrer haltlosen, faktenfreien #Polemik und Kriegsapologetik das vor, was sie
selbst praktiziert. Dass rechte Verschwörungserzählerinnen und Diktatorenapologetinnen wie Schwarzer in mit #Rundfunkgebühren finanzierte Talkshows eingeladen werden, als gehörten sie nicht mit Aluhut in die Fußgängerzone, ist der eigentliche Skandal im #ÖRR. Was Schwarzer von
sich gibt, ist das sicherheitspolitische Äquivalent zur Flat Earth Society.

Dear America:
On #Thanksgiving22 please open your eyes & mind to the #GOP's Long Con.

"When you compare Trump’s cons with the $50 trillion that the GOP has conned out of the American working class & GIVEN to the top 1% since 1980, Trump looks like a piker." @Thom_Hartmann
2. "[Trump] played his role in that GOP con, of course, setting up the very richest Americans to get more billions of dollars a year in tax breaks for the foreseeable future, but he’s a Johnny-come-lately to the GOP game."

3. [Republicans/Libertarians] have been running a money-and-power scam on white voters since Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” of the 1960s, a long con that went hypersonic with the election of Ronald Reagan. @Thom_Hartmann…

Congies, especially congies who live abroad, happen to be absolutely delusional!🤦‍♂️

They simply cannot understand that the Nehru-Khan dynasty is way past its sell-by date! #Pappu #Rahul Khan himself does NOT have a clue about ground realities at all. He is destroying India's GOP.
Fans of 🇮🇳's #GOP, don't misunderstand me. As I have made it clear again & again, I hate ALL 3 'C's (chaddies, congies & commies) in equal measure!

I do hate the Nehru-Khan dynasty, but I do NOT hate #pappu #Rahul at all! I can see that he is a GOOD fellow, but a BAD politician.
#Rahul is very unlike all his ancestors of the Nehru-Khan dynasty who had power (directly & indirectly!)

Unlike his sister, #pappu has inherited NONE of their evil, bloodthirsty, crooked, criminal mindset! He remains a GOOD fellow at heart, with NONE of his family's viciousness!

So abortion is healthcare and a human right no matter the reason. I wanted to highlight this. TW: Miscarriage, Forced Birth, Loss of reproductive ability…
This woman almost lost her life because she didn't have access to an abortion. She miscarried. Her water broke at 14 weeks, and the doctors told her she will develop a life threatening infection, but because Texas is so vague with it's fucking law they couldn't provide abortion.
There was no saving the child. They were dead. They begged the doctors. There was nothing that they could do to save this wanted pregnancy.

So she went home.

And she developed an infection and was sent to the E.R. her fever spiked to 104 and they finally got the abortion.

@duty2warn Ask yourself why is #GOP running a distracting and chaotic media circus in 2022? Then think back 2010's Tea Party Movement, it was to enable Koch's Hijack of Congress in retaliation for and to stymie Obama's Carbon Pollution Standards for Power Plants.…
@duty2warn #MoscowMitch blocked Merrick Garland's nomination and created gridlock and obstruction to Obama's Presidency from 2010 to 2016. Additionally #CitizensUnited gave GOP huge election war chests. GOP then nominated candidates who wanted to undo civil, LGBTQ and womens rights& won.
@duty2warn Between 2016 to 2020 while Trump ran his chaotic media circus, The #GOP with #Koch and #FederalistSociety hijacked The Supreme Court, gerrymandered States to make elections favorable, captured the USPS and slowed down Mail-in Voting all to help Trump cheat and win. He still lost

High ranking #GOP politicians visited a school. They went over the expenses and decided to make adjustments to cut costs.
"The lunch portions are too big. Cut them in half. Internet connection too fast. Too many computers."
After that they went to a preschool. Again, they felt the expenses were too great.
"The lunch portions are too big. Reduce them by half. Too many toys."
After the preschool they went to a prison.
"The lunch portions are too small and the selection is too limited. Get faster broadband and more comfortable beds. TVs are too old. Get a few consoles as well."

WATCH: #BNNUS Reports.

Some of the top Tennessee Republicans in a rally vowed to introduce legislation that will seek to end gender transition surgeries for minors. #GenderEquality #GOP #Protest
Tennessee House Majority Leader @WilliamLamberth and state Senate Majority Leader @SenJohnson called for an end to the procedures performed on minors over the age of 16 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The protest comes in response to a video that surfaced showing a doctor at the medical center saying that the gender-affirming procedures are “huge money makers” for hospitals.

The wonderful #PA01 #townhall held by @ashley_ehasz was a great success tonight.

But present outside was #CardboardFitz, a prop from past @FridaysWithFitz events who provided a history of #GOP #MAGAextremist Brian Fitzpatrick's worst votes!

📷 by Steve C.
Thx, Steve!
An oldie but a goodie.

Back in 2017, #PA01 #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick voted YES on the classic #Trump, Paul Ryan and #McConnell's #GOPTaxScam, which forked benefits over to the ultra rich and corporations.
#PA01 Rep. Fitzpatrick may pretend to be #green, but whenever given the choice, he picks his donors (big banks, #fossilfuel corporations) over the #environment.

De-regulating pipelines, opening the #arctic to drilling, etc. He votes with the money, not with the environment.

Hi all!
It's a 10 minute warning on the start of #Democrat Congressional candidate in #PA01, @ashley_ehasz's #townhall on #ReproductiveFreedom and the role of Congress.

You can watch here:

We'll be live tweeting the whole thing!
If you attended the @ashley_ehasz #PA01 #townhall in person, you'd have seen this (#Antichoice #GOP extremist Brian Fitzpatrick) cardboard guy out front.

That's as close as any version of Fitz would get to a town hall. He sprints away from unscripted constituent contact!
In case you want a run down of the legislative goods on #GOP #Antichoice extremist Brian Fitzpatrick of #PA01, here's the rundown...

The TL;DR is that Brian Fitzpatrick has ALWAYS voted AGAINST #AbortionRights.

He's no moderate, don't drink the Kool-aid on that!

Social Security is financed through a dedicated payroll tax. Employers and employees each pay 6.2 percent of wages up to the taxable maximum of $147,000 (in 2022), while the self-employed pay 12.4 percent.
2/2 “Funding 4 Medicare, which totaled $888 billion in 2021, comes primarily from general revenues, payroll tax revenues, and premiums paid by beneficiaries (Figure 1). Other sources include taxes on Social Security benefits, payments from states, and interest.”
