You all know me as a firm progressive, but my dad is a staunch Kansas Republican: a thread. 👇1/13
Growing up I had a great life, not wealthy, but supported by a very loving family who adopted me at birth. My mom passed away when I was a pre-teen, and my family struggled with that, be we were ALWAYS there for each other. 2/13
I came out as gay to my dad in the 8th grade, and I could tell it made him uncomfortable, and he never knew how to talk about it, but he said something along the lines of “you’ll always be my son and I still love you”. 3/13

As a Kansan, don't believe the spin in the media. #Kansas did NOT vote to enshrine #abortion as a state right. 🧵1/8
The Kansas constitution does not enumerate any rights regarding abortion. The Kansas Supreme Court decision ruling that it does was wholly dependent on Roe. The death of Roe should reverse the state ruling. 2/8
KS Pro-Life Lawmakers do not have their hands tied. They simply need to pass laws against abortion (a ban preferably) that will go to court. This leads to two options. 3/8

In 2011, 58% of Mississippians voted AGAINST adopting a total abortion ban by rejecting the Personhood Amendment.

Then, the Mississippi Legislature spent the next decade passing abortion bans until they finally got one to the Supreme Court and overturned Roe v. Wade. #Kansas
Around ~170 Republican members of Congress currently sponsor a national "Life At Conception Act" like the 2011 Personhood Amendment Mississippians rejected.

It would grant fetuses and fertilized eggs 14th Amendment rights. #Kansas

Day #5 of the #BannonTrial is set to begin shortly in the E. Barrett Perryman US District Courthouse in Washington, D.C. Prosecutors and defense make final arguments and the case then goes to the jury. That's the plan. #BannonTrial
Thursday's proceedings concluded with Judge Carl Nichols recessing to chambers to craft final jury instructions and ponder the defense's motion to dismiss the case. He will not rule on the motion until after the verdict. #BannonTrial
In response to Nichols' final jury instructions, which were emailed to all parties last night, Bannon's attorneys have filed a 10-page notice of objection. #BannonTrial storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.usco…

More on this, if you're in Colorado, the time is now for #heatwave preparation.
Actually, looks like #Nebraska and #Kansas with some major possibilities for heat. I'm hoping this doesn't impact agriculture as much as I suspect it will. 122F would be bad. #heatwave ImageImage

I want to thank @MO_Independent for this reporting. It is good and important reporting, and I thank them for shining a light on missing foster kids in Missouri.

And other states should have picked it up.
missouriindependent.com/2022/05/23/%e2…
No doubt 1,780 missing kids is bad. That is 4% of the total of foster kids during this period that went missing.

But the study was about how states report and search for missing kids.
oig.hhs.gov/oas/reports/re…
#Kansas, #Maryland, #Nebraska, #NewYork, and #Ohio each reported 7% of their foster kids went missing during the same period. SEVEN PERCENT.

A quick google search didn't show any news reporting raising concerns mentioning missing foster kids in these states.

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.” al.com/news/2021/12/a… Image

Thread 🧵 will contain #Redistricting Committee info, contacts, links & any schedules I find.

We must actively participate in Democracy if we want it to survive the pressures from those who teeter on the fringe of fascism.

Speak! Don't allow them to gerrymander your voice away!

STEALING FROM #MAGA

How #Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations

Online donors were guided into weekly recurring contributions.

Demands for refunds spiked. Complaints to banks and credit card companies soared.

#MOG

nytimes.com/2021/04/03/us/…
A 63-year-old battling cancer from #Kansas making less than $1,000 per month donated $500

That single contribution — federal records show it was his first ever — quickly multiplied.

Another $500 was withdrawn the next day, then $500 the next week and every week through October
Payments kept passing Until Mr. Blatt’s bank account had been depleted and frozen.

When his utility and rent payments bounced, he called his brother, Russell, for help.

I know no one’s surprised, but we need to call it out anyway. Today the Republican Party sealed their legacy w/Trumpism. They’re now & forever the party of racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, domestic terrorism, conspiracy theorists & fact deniers. They own this. #GOPCowards
Republicans of conscience, now is the time. There’s no “saving” your party at this point. Now is your fleeting opportunity to come over to the right side of history & join the Dems. @SenBillCassidy @SenatorBurr @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @MittRomney @BenSasse @SenToomey
For the other 43 - the #GOPCowards - us REAL patriots will see to it that you’re stripped of all power & your big $ donors drop you.

To the REAL patriots: FLOOD YOUR SENATORS’ PHONES. Tell them how sickened you are, as one of their constituents. Contact info to follow (thread)
