I have been a dedicated INDEPENDENT #StopTPP #activists for almost 10 yrs. I started studying it, after I admired #AaronSwartz's work to #StopSOPA--after he passed away, I felt incensed govt tried to reinsert #SOPA into #TPP (now called #CPTPP). #StopCPTPP
huffpost.com/entry/tpp-publ…
I ended up having very bad experiences, not really understanding why...for years. I knew people were following me & hassling me, but I did not know who or why...I had no idea about govt. targeting programs, at the time.

#NoTPP #StopCPTPP

I was following #KimDotcom's case, because he had been attacked, allegedly, for #SOPA--which never passed in USA"s Congress, due to #AaronSwartz's work...copyright infringement is NOT criminal offense...so Dotcom's case was interesting to me.

🇯🇵Japan’s Special Advisor to the Cabinet @YoichiTakahashi shows utter disregard to more than 10,000 deaths suffered, comparing the statistics with major countries saying, “Japan’s only a ‘RIPPLE’. To call off #Tokyo2020 for this lol” causing uproar asking the Cabinet to fire him.
A hashtag #高橋洋一内閣官房参与の更迭を求めます calling for his replacement is trending now in Japan with over 30,000 tweets in less than a day. Opposition parties are likely to raise this incident in the parliament to question if the Cabinet shares the same perception.
WHO Western Pacific reports that as of 7 May 2021, 🇯🇵Japan has recorded 4,871 cases in the last 24 hours, 620,994 cumulative confirmed cases, and 10,589 deaths. The number of new cases and deaths are dwarfed only by 🇵🇭The Philippines, ranking SECOND WORST in the region.

"Each day, the government reports more than 300,000 new infections, a world record, & #India is now seeing more new infections than any other country by far, almost half of all new cases in a global surge."

1. "Millions of people refuse to even step outside — their fear of catching the virus is that extreme. Accounts from around the country tell of the sick being left to gasp for air as they wait at chaotic hospitals that are running out of lifesaving oxygen."
2. "The sudden surge in recent weeks, with an insidious newer variant possibly playing a role, is casting increasing doubt on India’s official Covid19 death toll of nearly 200,000, with more than 2,000 people dying every day."

USA haben neue Sanktionen gegen Russland eingeführt.
Eigentlich nichts neues. In RUS sorgt das mittlerweile nur für Lacher oder Langeweile.
Und doch ist es dieses Mal etwas anders, denn #Biden hat hierfür allen ernstes den nationalen Notstand ausgerufen
#nationalemergency
(1/4) Image
Demnach wolle Washington mit dem nationalen Notstand besser auf die "russische Bedrohung" reagieren.
Details zu den Sanktionen:
- 10 rus. Botschaftsangehörige werden ausgewiesen,
- 16 rus. Firmen und Personen werden mit Sanktionen belegt,
- Einschränkungen im Finanzwesen.
(2/4) Image
Heute Abend will #Biden außerdem eine Rede halten, um seine weitere Russland-Politik darzulegen.
Mit dieser Erklärung des nationalen Notstandes (national emergency), um Sanktionen gegen RUS einzuführen, übertrifft #Biden jedenfalls so ziemlich alle seine Vorgänger.

In early 2009, #ObamaBiden were so busy watching the #FederalReserve shovel #funnymoney to cover the #BushRecession, while moving troops from Iraq to Afghanistan, and resetting relations with Russia & Ukraine, they barely had time to ignore the emerging #H1N1SwineFlu pandemic.
In the spring of 2009, a novel influenza virus emerged. It was detected first in the United States & spread quickly across the United States & the world.
#CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases, 274,304 hospitalizations, & 12,469 deaths in the U.S. alone due to the virus.
#CDC estimated up to 575,400 people worldwide died from #H1N1SwineFlu virus infection during the first year the virus circulated.
Since 2009, the H1N1 virus has circulated seasonally in the U.S. causing significant illnesses, hospitalizations, & deaths.

1/ It’s presidential #primary season, and we’re in the middle of a #pandemic. President Trump has declared a #NationalEmergency, sports seasons are postponed, and yet voters may be forced to line up at crowded polling locations to #vote. 4 states still have #primaries next week!
2/ There’s a bill in the Senate right now that would make it possible for all Americans to #VoteAtHome, keeping everyone safe while ensuring the 2020 elections continue. Add your name to send a message to your Senators, urging them to pass the bill: act.represent.us/sign/vote-at-h…
3/ If passed, this bill (S.3440) would require all states to allow voters to request absentee ballots if a widespread emergency made voting in person unsafe. #CommonSense #coronavirus

When Pres. Obama declared a National Emergency in 2009...it allowed gov to "temporarily waive or modify certain requirements of the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children's Health Insurance programs... throughout the duration of the public health emergency in response to H1N1"
Awaiting a major announcement from President Trump at 3:00 from the White House Rose Garden. He’ll be addressing the #CoronavirusOutbreak #NexstarDC Image
Running a few minutes behind here. POTUS coming out to address the country any minute now -the expectation is that he’s going to declare a national emergency for the #Coronavirus #nexstarDC Image

#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border. theepochtimes.com/year-in-review…
The #BorderCrisis escalated, and in May, nearly 133,000 #IllegalAliens were apprehended by #BorderPatrol, with a further 11,000 presenting at ports of entry without legal documentation.

By the end of fiscal 2019, almost 1 million people had entered the US illegally.
Over 600,000 of them were either individuals within a family unit or unaccompanied minors—both vulnerable populations that often arrived sick and required more care than #BorderPatrol was set up to provide.

The past week has been shocking: #DaytonShooting #ElPasoShooting #GilroyShooting #BrownsvilleShooting. We've all got to do our part on #gunviolence in America. That starts by learning about the problem and solutions. Over the past year & a half, I've devoted myself to this cause.
Season 3 of my podcast @ISIHpodcast insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com has covered #gunviolence in America. In our first chapter, we tackled the unique history that produced America's gun culture. In our second chapter, we delve into how race and gender intersect with guns and gun violence.
@ISIHpodcast In the third chapter of Season 3 of @ISIHpodcast insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com we focused on #guns themselves: do more guns lead to more vs less crime... what does it look like when people use guns in self-defense... instrumentality... & the impact of Australia's gun buyback.

Today, 19 former Republican members of Congress filed a brief supporting our lawsuit against @POTUS’s #NationalEmergency declaration. The President cannot be allowed to usurp Congress’s constitutional powers. protectdemocracy.org/resource-libra…
We are grateful to the co-signers for speaking out against executive overreach. A #NationalEmergency does not permit the President to hijack Congress’s power of the purse. Our system of checks & balances exists for a reason.

The vote on the #NationalEmergency gave #Republicans a clear choice: put the Constitution first, or put @realDonaldTrump first.

The Founding Fathers granted the Congress the power of the purse to decide how to allocate funds.
Yet many #Republicans will raid funds appropriated by Congress to our armed forces to pay for @realDonaldTrump’s Big Dumb Wall.

This creates precedent for a future Democratic president to act unilaterally on real crises, like mass shootings and #climate change.
Next it will be up to #Republicans in Congress to decide how to respond to a presidential veto.

We will see where they stand in this contest between #Trump and the #Constitution.
