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.

THREAD #TrumpCaved
Trump said the Budget (the negotiation in Congress on how funding is divided up for the year) must contain funding for #TheWall & he threw out $5.7 Billion as a negotiating starting point for the wall funding & Nancy Pelosi committed to $1 as her starting point
Trump then brought Nancy & Chuck in the Oval Office with cameras rolling, and they admitted they were against the wall & begged Trump to turn off the cameras so that they could NEGOTIATE IN GOOD FAITH. Remember that? I sure do.
Then Nancy & Chuck refused to negotiate at all & they still do, here's a quote from Chuck Schumer today after a month of #GovernmentShutdown: “Democrats are firmly against the wall”. So they are still at $1. Doesn't sound like good faith negotiating to me.

1) A "BLUEPRINT research" thread.

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. #Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." - #BenFranklin

*Thread to be updated as new research threads are published*

#GreatAwakening #WWG1WGA #QAnon
2) Updated in Dec., I first published a patriot monologue.

"An encyclopedia of facts on the #DeepState, #Trump and his work in support of minorities, #QAnon and a lot more. An online dispensary of red pills for your friends and relatives." -@prayingmedic

3) Inspired by nearly a year of following @prayingmedic's tweet threads, I decided to join twitter to create this #Moloch thread to investigate ancient-modern Moloch worship and its existence in National Founder Archives, #WikiLeaks, and the #HolyBible.

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

0/ We're currently tracking at 40°C (104℉) here in #Melbourne, yet even that pales in comparison to the heat we're seeing in the #crypto/#blockchain space over the past ~24 hours.

What a day! Below are 22 developments that caught my eye.
1/ 🍑 Prominent full-service #blockchain technology co. @BitfuryGroup today announced a #Bitcoin #LightningNetwork-oriented product bundle called @Lightning_Peach.

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!

1) A short "Reduction in Force" (RIF) thread.

Title 5 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 351 - REDUCTION IN FORCE

2) According to the Congressional Research Service, America has experienced 19 shutdowns since 1976, ranging from a single day to 21 days. The 21-day shutdown in 1995 was a famous budget showdown between @BillClinton and @newtgingrich.
3) Shutdowns stem constitutionally, Article I, Section 9: "No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law." Reinforced by Antideficiency Act, stemming from a revised 1870 law.

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
