There's no news of #Modi's visit to the #US when you turn on #CNN on TV in India.

So I looked up #NBC online.

I had to scroll past 11 screens to find any news of Modi's visit.

#XiJinping, on the other hand, was on the first screen.

These are the first six screens.

Republican Senator Jeff Edler now presenting the bill that will literally kill Iowa children: the ban on gender-affirming care (meds, hormones, surgery).
Says state has a duty to protect children and every child deserves a "natural" childhood including going through puberty.
Edler says the state already regulates other "harmful" behavior, e.g. doesn't allow children to get a tattoo, even with parental permission.
The flaw in this argument is that EVERY major medical, public health, and psych organization supports gender-affirming care. Not harmful.
Sen @ZachWahls now questioning Edler about why the bill says it doesn't constitute a civil rights violation.
Is pointing out that the bill explicitly restricts access to medical procedures and medications based on a person's gender identity.

1) Trump won't be able to terminate the US Constitution but a Republican-led effort to rewrite it continues… Trump's "allies are busy pushing an unprecedented rewrite of the foundational document that would fundamentally alter Americans' daily lives."
2) "In 2022, a group with ties to Trump's orbit was able to get four more states to join its efforts."

"@CommonCause is trying both to thwart any new convention pushes alongside repealing old resolutions calling a convention."… Support them!

"#ALEC’s proposed Free Speech in Higher Education Act debated by members this week would ban public universities from using bias reporting systems to prevent or punish “offensive” or “unwanted” speech by students, faculty, staff, or guests."… #HigherEd Image
#ALEC’s FORUM Act "has passed in multiple states with the help of the hate group Alliance Defending Freedom, aims to address the manufactured free speech “crisis” being hyped by the Right, often by sending extremist provocateurs to speak at colleges and universities." #HigherEd Image
The real reason for the attack on libraries… This "has always been about keeping people uneducated and ignorant. Suppressing diverse ideas has always been the hallmark of conservatism, and free libraries stand in the way of their goal."

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%
Easy Democratic pick-up of a safe new African American seat.… ImageImageImage

Do you know how many will NEVER be able to forgive
Themselves for not coming clean for all the evil things they’ve done in life upon others or trying to be someone they’re not? ..

I forgive John F Kennedy Jr, My best friend next to my brother …
I forgive DJT, he played the role of me perfectly.

This #Iowa farm just killed 5 million birds during an outbreak of #avianflu, &we documented the horrific aftermath of the mass killing, including birds left behind after surviving "#ventilationshutdown." @KimReynoldsIA
Full video:…
Taxpayer dollars paid for the farm's last mass killing after infectious disease ran rampant in 2015. Now, the farm's billionaire owner, former Senator Glen Taylor, who also owns @Timberwolves & @StarTribune, may get bailed out again despite posing a public health threat.
Please share this video to help spread the word about the #AvianFlu & the industry's violent response. #VentilationShutdown

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

@ethanmwolf Well, as is the case with @SenFeinstein from #California, #Iowa voters will make their fully-informed decision in the voting booth.

@iowademocrats have to nominate a candidate who can win, assuming @IowaGOP renominate @ChuckGrassley.


@ethanmwolf @SenFeinstein @iowademocrats @IowaGOP @ChuckGrassley @FrankenforIowa Unfortunately, thanks to @TheDemocrats @DNC @harrisonjaime adopting the entire militant transgender agenda, without any discussion of reasonable accommodation, they’re going to lose America’s last free elections in 2022 and 2024.

Six years ago, @mzamoraphoto and I published the #TransinIowa series. Back then, we largely celebrated a state that truly prized liberties. Today, Iowa passed a bill (awaiting Gov signature) that prohibits transgender athletes from playing sports with their gender.
@mzamoraphoto One story featured Iowa's first openly transgender athlete, a transman. He ran on men's cross-country in Cedar Falls; the coach actively sought him out to run on the team.

.@POTUS to tell the America ppl #Russia's Vladimir #Putin miscalculated on #Ukraine

"He rejected efforts at diplomacy. He thought the West & @NATO wouldn’t respond. And, he thought he could divide us here at home" per prepared remarks for #SOTU

"Putin was wrong. We were ready"
"Throughout our history we’ve learned this lesson – when dictators do not pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos. They keep moving" @POTUS to say in #SOTU "And, the costs and threats to America & the world keep rising..."

In the Republican response, #Iowa Gov @KimReynoldsIA to say, "all Americans must stand united in solidarity with the brave people of #Ukraine as they courageously defend their country against #Putin’s tyranny..."

Did you know that Ohio created a school voucher program in 2014? Let's look at some facts about their program as #ialegis considers the @KimReynoldsIA voucher plan for #Iowa students 1/15
But first, did you know that school vouchers are not a concept that was created by educational experts; not proposed by parents; not even an idea politicians came up with. Nope. Vouchers are the brainchild of Milton Friedman, a radical free-market economist. 2/15
Friedman wrote an essay in 1955 entitled "The Role of Government in Education." He starts his essay by saying “I deplore segregation and racial prejudice.” (You know, if you have to say 'I'm not a racist, but...' you've already given yourself away, Milt.) 3/15
