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!

Now that #Oklahoma and #Texas have officially withdrawn from the #Big12-2-2-2, several academic institutions in the league have started the process of backchanneling (while of course remaining committed to the Big12-2-2-2) for a new home.
Not wanting my own beloved college cast aside to a G5 league that is more aligned with our aspirations and history, I’ve taken it upon myself to produce a similar piece, so that another elite league may choose to add us and carry us on their financial shoulders.
I of course, am speaking of University of #West #Virginia. There are several things that set #WVU apart from your average D1 entity. These unique qualities define us, and should give us immediate consideration for our admission into either the #ACC, #BIG16, #PACnumber, or #SEC.

Even if every unvaccinated eligible person were to get their first dose today, it would take *at least* 8 weeks for the country to reach 83-85% *fully* vaccinated (the remaining 15-17% of persons are too young or too sick to get vaccinated)

Upshot: we *also* need a mask mandate
This is happening throughout the nation. Yes, #VaccinesSaveLives but they’re not enough to overcome #DeltaVariant *on their own* — if we want to avoid shutdowns, now is the time to #MaskUp
The “pandemic of the unvaccinated” is nothing more than a political talking point detached from reality. The reality is that #VaccinesSaveLives but they’re not enough to stop the spread of #DeltaVariant— we also need to #WearAMask

🔥 I can't stress this enough: there are places *participating* in the US #DeltaVariant wave where the fully vaccinated rate is as high as 63%

Let that sink in.
San Mateo County, #California: 66% of the population is *fully* vaccinated and the case rate is higher than it was in early April

source: CDC
Nassau County, #NewYork: 60% of the population is *fully* vaccinated and the case rate has increased 76% in the last 7 days

Guys.

I was able to go "maskless" in Kohls and Target and it was great, but I kept telling people "I am vaccinated, I am not a Republican asshole" and luckily everyone laughed.

#maskoff #Vaccinated #Maryland
Note: The stores were EMPTY. So I felt comfortable. If it was a busy Saturday, mask on. If anyone got close to me, mask went up.

BUT it was nice to be able to pull it down if I was in an EMPTY section.
My maskless face! I felt naked!!! Image

🇺🇸#USA 🇮🇷#Iran #Maryland #LAWSUIT #SANCTIONS

R.Boyd of Maryland has been charged with ten counts of violating the Iran Transaction and Sanctions Regulations (IEEPA) and the International Emergency Eonomic Powers Act (ITSR).
Mr Boyd is accused of importing Iranian rial banknotes into the US via Jordan between 2015 and 2018, which he then distributed to US customers without the required OFAC licenses.
Even after Boyd was warned by authorities in 2016 that his actions were in violation of US sanctions, the scheme is said to have continued.

The military has a growing problem with white supremacy & extremism –– because our country does.

Lecia Brooks, SPLC's Chief of Staff, testified before @HASCDemocrats today about white supremacists' presence in the military.

Read her remarks:

#RefuseHate splcenter.org/news/2021/03/2…
Over the years, SPLC researchers have identified dozens of former & active-duty military personnel among the ranks of some of the country’s most dangerous and violent white supremacist groups.

Those groups include👇

The Base
The Atomwaffen Division (AWD)
The Boogaloo Movement
The Atomwaffen Division (AWD): A neo-Nazi group that believes violence, degeneracy & depravity are the only sure way to establish order in their apocalyptic vision of the world.

Allegedly, AWD members have been responsible for 5 murders since 2017.

Any policy enforcer imposes statutes & codes, phyiscally assult/murder a fellow countryman is Treason and Sedition.

Policy enforcers violate their own Federal Statutes 24/7.

Look up these statutes 👇
United States Code, Title 18 § 241 Conspiracy against rights.
#Maryland
2)
United States Code, Title 18 §242 Deprivation of rights under color of law.

Policy enforcers for example when they pull you over & and issue you a fine violate the 4th Amendment & the 5th Amendment-due process.

According to a Supreme Court ruling police have no constitutional duty to protect us.

It is our natural right to defend ourselves against ANYONE!

Marine One has landed @Andrews_JBA. @POTUS will take a very short Air Force One intra-state flight to Hagerstown, #Maryland, closer to his weekend destination of Camp David.
And @POTUS boards Air Force One.
No @FLOTUS on Marine One. Unclear if she'll be joining @POTUS at Camp David. Several aides were on Marine One for the ride from the @WhiteHouse to @Andrews_JBA.
