NEXT UP: # 4 SEED FISHER VERSUS # 5 SEED TIGER OWL #2019MMM photo credits: Tom Kogut
Tiger owls are generally "free from natural enemies" predators such as coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions & are known to attack humans who get too close to their nests (Baumgartner 1939) #TheyWillCutYou #2019MMM
Males & females tiger owls mature by year 3 & females are larger. They produce 1-6 eggs/season & alternate roosting & hunting during the nesting season. Males do most of the hunting while females spend their time protecting the brood. (Baumgarter 1939) #2019MMM

Thanks to the #GovernmentShutdown it took a while to get the comments for my (once again failed) application to the @NEHgov for my book. Some thoughts: (thread)
I am very grateful to the people who volunteer to do this job. It's a great kindness to participate in giving away money to OTHER PEOPLE to do their work, thus sacrificing their own time. I am sincere about that. Even to those of you who found my project unworthy.
That said, People who evaluate my scholarship seem to fall into two categories: those who really seem to love it, and think I am innovative and interesting, and those who think I should go sell real estate for a living. This phenomenon has affected me my whole career.

My Rez is breathing a collective sigh of relief post #governmentshutdown. We still have issues but at least I don’t have to worry about my dad running out of insulin & my cousins can work & not worry about where their next meal is coming from + keep the heat on when its -50.
There’s actually been 1 positive affect of the shutdown in my community. People are now driven to build our capacity to be self sufficient and exercise our tribal sovereignty. Lots of plans are underway.
I will continue to help folks on the Rez with transportation, food, clothes, & being heard, but I was doing that before the shutdown. We call it being a good relative.

1/ We asked every Texan in Congress whether the government shutdown over President Trump's border wall is worth it.

Here’s what they told us. Follow this thread. #borderwall #GovernmentShutdown
2/ We asked every Texan in Congress these two questions:

+ Should the U.S. government finish the wall along the country's southern border?

+ Is the stalemate worth federal workers and contractors missing their paychecks?
3/ When we asked Sen. John Cornyn about a border wall, he didn’t give us a yes or no.

He said: "There is no one-size-fits-all prescription for the entire border. It's quite a diverse geography."

@WhiteHouse for the first time in #american history a spker of house has revoked an invitation to a duly elected #POTUS to speak before the nation. These traditions are what "Makes America Great" #Pelosi is very extreme and is denying our #SOTU speech. #WWG1WGA #MAGA #sadness
We don't have a 25th amendment to apply to @SpeakerPelosi but we do have to begin to ask is she "mentally competent" She has grabbed power and control of our budget, boarder security and #SOTUS speech. This is "fascistic" In nature and destroying our country.
Here is a list of #fascistic techniques of #putin and #pelosi

-Supporting Hamas
-Supporting Hezbollah
-Supporting Antifa
-Supporting Destroying the Constitution
-Supporting Open Boarders
-Taxing 70% of your wealth

These are tactics of #Fascist - destruction is the end goal

Fancy Nancy is playing politics. She lied about House security and the liberal MSM aren’t calling her on it. #SOTU
Fancy Nancy's problem is she is listening to the liberal MSM say she is a badass and 3rd in line to the presidency (as though she is the president). She needs to accept that she is just speaker of the House and will never be president and back to work.
The liberal MSM never played Paul Ryan, John Bohner or any Republican up as being the third in line to the presidency. Sure according to the constitution the House Speaker is next in line, but for Pete's sake. Let her do her job as speaker.

Say what?! If you are a Democrat why? How are they fighting for you? What are you achieving by voting for the #PartyOfCrime?

Only 6 Dems voted to pay you during the #GovernmentShutdown

#GreatAwakening #WWG1WGA
The House Democrats aka #PartyOfCrime voted NO a 2nd time this week NOT to pay employees during #GovernmentShutdown

If you're pissed, you need to contact your House rep & demand they fix this immediately.

Today at 11:30 am, members of FBIAA's National Executive Board gather for a press conference to discuss the current and lasting impacts of the #GovernmentShutdown on FBI operations and national security. Updates will be shared on this thread.
Opening statement from FBIAA President @tfoconnor83: "I want to make one point clear: Agents were working cases yesterday, are working cases today, and will be working cases tomorrow. They are doing so without pay and under increasingly challenging conditions."
"Last night I delivered food to our office break room for those in the office who are in need. The FBI family always comes together in times of crisis, but it's truly sad that we must resort to this."

For 2 years of Trump now, science has been under attack: policies ignore science; generation of new scientific studies & data has been dismantled.

With the great @POGOBlog team, I've tracked the types of attacks while fighting back. A tour of the worst that's happened in THREAD:
NEW STUDIES & DATA: Trump has terminated efforts that generate scientific info. Policies that ignore science cause damage, but preventing science & data from even existing can undermine policymaking for years. 2/

@bydarrylfears described a clear example:…
One of Pruitt's first actions at @EPA was scrapping a request for industry to provide info about their methane emissions & controls, one day after state GOP leaders asked. The data could have informed years of regs. 3/

Due to this #governmentshutdown Native communities are suffering. Last night this reservation was under a wind chill advisory. Tribal citizens are struggling to keep their homes heated & power on. Federal funding for law enforcement here ran out this week. Safety is a concern.
Native communities are not political fodder. We are human beings & at present, the federal government is reneging on its treaty and trust responsibilities to tribes. Children are going hungry and lives are in danger. This shutdown must end.
This shutdown isn’t just an inconvenience. Native communities are losing essentials that mean the difference between civility and chaos. We are losing access to healthcare and law enforcement; both of which are already understaffed and underfunded.

Unbelievable radical Democrats along with liberal MSM are already poo-pooing on the presidents offer to end the government shutdown. It's all politics. You'd think they would think about the American people. #GovernmentShutdown
Remember the Bridge Act proposed by the Democrats and Dirk Durbin that's what the president is proposing. If the MSM did its job and called the Dems out something would happen.
How can Fancy Nancy negotiate when she has left DC? Shameful!

Here's your reminder that, 2 years under Trump, state-sponsored censorship of climate info is still ongoing and pervasive across fed agencies (@EPA, @StateDept, @Interior, @USDOT, …)

Check out @andmbergman & my @NYTopinion piece and examples in THREAD:…
In Oct 2018, @USDOT, which oversees transportation, one of the largest sectors contributing to anthropogenic U.S. GHG emissions, obfuscated climate info by removing its "Climate Change Clearinghouse" page, among several others

@CNN's @Rene_MarshCNN broke:…
.@EPA's removal of is still the largest case of online climate change censorship by a fed agency

The small amount of the site that was returned censored info about climate change. @NYTclimate's @LFFriedman on our @EnviroDGI report:…

I pool my info from a multitude of thought processes & I’m flat out telling you the U.S. is under attack by Moscow & he’s using Trump to shred this country in every conceivable way possible.

While we talk about hamburgers & walls we’re being systematically broken in half.
This #GovernmentShutdown was premeditated and will continue until a point at which they feel the US has been weakened to a breaking point at which time Trump will trigger Emergency Powers forcing an almost complete reliance on the Federal Gov. under a state of Martial Law
We are ‘under siege’ by a very clever, fluid, real-time attack that’s a slow burning of our 3 branches of Government. Trump will continue to damage this country like a crazed Bullshitter in a China shop. Our slow system of check & balances is being overrun by Traitor(s) in the WH

The #GovernmentShutdown is now the longest in U.S. history! Here are the top 10 reasons why the #TrumpShutdown is Donald Trump's fault. (THREAD - PLEASE RT)
1) Trump REJECTED a bipartisan compromise in early 2018 that would have provided billions of dollars in #BorderWallFunding in exchange for protecting the #Dreamers. #TrumpShutdown
2) The #TrumpShutdown started before Christmas, when the GOP held majorities in both the House and Senate. @SpeakerRyan still held the gavel & even he couldn't pass wall funding. #EndTheShutdown

About this #GovernmentShutdown


Don’t blame Trump. He’s a result, not a cause.
Blame the toxic GOP who, for decades, have gleefully and relentlessly pushed vile and inhumane policy and who have embraced prejudice and xenophobia as part of the party platform.
Blame the media who gave a platform to those policies and these people without challenge, lending legitimacy to the indefensible and utterly failing in their purpose of serving as a source of critical information and a check on unfettered power...

9 of 15 Federal depts are affected by the GOP-owned #governmentshutdown. As of yesterday, it has cost our economy $3.6 billion. Soon, this economic damage will surpass the figure Trump demands to fund “his” border wall.

That’s how little he cares about our country #TraitorTrump
Good article for a visual breakdown of the effects of this thoroughly unnecessary, ego-driven, GOP-owned #govermentshutdown here:…
Did I mention it’s the #GOPowned #GovernmentShutdown??? We need to get that trending ASAP for ALL the things the GOP is responsible for. Trump wants the wall, but McConnell ALLOWS a shutdown when he could easily STOP it.

NO ONE has done more damage to our country than McConnell.

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4369: Donald Trump's Border Wall Oval Office Address • #DonaldTrump #BorderWall #OvalOffice #Deception #Anxiety #Frustration #DilatedPupils #Drugs #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #GovernmentShutdown
1/ On Tuesday 8 January 2018, President Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office regarding his proposed Wall at the US-Mexico border. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of this event.
2/ As he began his Oval Office address, Donald Trump intertwined his fingers (0:06). For him, this hand/arm configuration is rare. He was probably following the advice of a speech coach.

The President scorches another liberal MSM journalist who doesn’t have a clue about governing. #GovernmentShutdown
I just love it when the President serve them their arses on a platter of truth. LOL!
Interesting Maggie Haberman of the NYT is able to report on stories and events that she wasn't present, and still, her word is taken as gospel. Folks, she is a no show. As the former editor, Jill Abramson of the NYT said is all about clicks and not the truth. They make stuff up!

Ok, several requests for scripts, following this quick thread about the #governmentshutdown

Let's start backwards -

(Disclaimer: I do have a cold, so typos might appear)

1. Here's a script for ALL Dem electeds. Encourage them to:

a. Stay strong,
b. Continue to do support/do outreach to federal employees, and
c. Push Senate GOP colleagues to pass the House bill - You: Hi, my name is [name]. I am calling from [address/zip code].<br />
<br />
You: I am calling to let [elected] know, I support the decision to continue to take a stand against the GOP push for border wall funding. Now is the time to hold firm.<br />
<br />
For Dem House electeds: Thank you for continuing to work for our best interests. Please continue to support/push your Senate colleagues, in their push to get the Senate to (again) take
- which, if you recall, already passed the Senate once:…

Also. As I've said many times before, you should definitely call Dem electeds, even if they're already voting your way.

UPDATE on the #governmentshutdown as it pertains to @BigBendNPS. Per the official statement: "During the government shutdown, Big Bend National Park will remain open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, as always". However, overnight camping is prohibited at this time. #visitbigbend
For day use at @BigBendNPS you can still hike most trails, scenic drive on most paved and unpaved park roads, cycle, take awesome photos, see the Río Grande, get gas and snacks at park stores, and much more. #bigbendnationalpark
For those who were planning to camp at @BigBendNPS, there are quite a few places to tent camp or park your RV in and around nearby Study Butte and Terlingua, about 15 minutes drive from the main entrance to the park. And they are run by some of our great locals. #visitterlingua
