🔥 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

Just as #NewJersey doubles its commitment to funding innovative, public-interest news and information (a groundbreaking initiative spearheaded by @FreePress), neighboring #Pennsylvania is walking it back.

And the reasons behind PA defunding appear to be highly controversial. 1/6
According to the @PennCapitalStar report, seven public TV and radio stations — such as @WHYY in Philadelphia, @WQED in Pittsburgh, and @WITF in Harrisburg saw their funding ($2.75 million in state taxpayer support) eliminated. 2/6
The zeroing out of state funds comes as WITF’s @NPR-affiliated journalists pursue a lengthy investigation to hold Pennsylvania's Republican legislators accountable for undermining the 2020 election. 3/6

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine
#SheikJarrah #Silwan #Jerusalem #Gaza #EqualityforAll #OneLove
Full thread in 1 convenient viewing location here:…
I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

So since the dude that got popped embezzling and has been accused by multiple comedians of sexual harassment and sexual assault wants to know why I am considered a leader let’s fucking do this. #thread #palestine #NJ #DisCo
When I was 16 I became student council president that’s when my interest in leadership and government began as a result I went to leader ship training camp as a teen. I became a counselor at that camp for 13 years so I literally train future #NewJersey leaders.
At 18 I volunteered on my first campaign. It was for Bob Torricelli. Yes I know how his career ended and a lot of New Jersey politicians that I volunteered for ended up resigning in disgrace or going to jail but this is #Jersey #CripTheVote

¿Tiene una sola frase -apenas 14 palabras- la #capacidad para levantar #puentes, el #carisma para llegar a miles de personas y la #fuerza para cambiar el rumbo de la historia?
ABRIMOS #CuéntameUnPuente
Hoy viajamos hasta un puente que han cruzado juntos Willie Nelson, Camilo Sesto, Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin... y hasta un grupo de hermanos apellidados Jackson entre los cuales estaba un tal Michael que apuntaba alto.
La historia de este #puente se inicia en el siglo XIX. Sus pilares se asientan en una canción que los esclavos de las plantaciones de #Virginia cantaban una y otra vez mientras trabajaban el tabaco. Esa melodía les daba algo imprescindible: esperanza.

#BAPS के समर्थक बता रहे हैं कि गलती उनकी नहीं, बल्कि एक अमेरिकन कंपनी- 'कुन्हा कंस्ट्रक्शन' की है। हम में से कई मज़दूर BAPS के लिए काम करने के लिए #NewJersey के साथ- #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago भी गए हैं। ज़मीनी सच्चाई-
घटनाक्रम- 1. रोज़गार का ऑफर राजस्थान में मिलता है 2. BAPS के अहमदाबाद ऑफिस में ज़रूरी दस्तावेज़ीकरण 3. US निर्माण साइट पर कारावास 4. काम की शर्तों पर बातचीत। इस दौरान मजदूर BAPS के प्रतिनिधि से ही बात करते हैं- 'कुन्हा' के बारे में कभी नहीं सुना।
बिचौलिये पर आरोप लगाना बहुत पुरानी तरकीब है। ताकतवर पूँजीवादी, छोटे उद्योग/बिचौलियों पर इलज़ाम लगा कर हट जाते हैं। इसलिए ज़रूरी है कि हम साथ खड़े रहे।

In a bid to encourage vaccination, the state of Ohio has announced a million-dollar lottery program for its vaccinated residents. The weekly lucky draw will reportedly begin on May 26. #OhioState #USA #COVID19 #vaccination #VaccineForAll #Coronavirus… Image
According to Ohio Governor DeWine, $1 million cash prize will be given to 5 lucky state residents who have received at least one vaccine shot. Ohio residents aged 12-17 also stand a chance to win full, 4-year scholarships to state public universities if they receive their jabs. Image
Moreover, many American states are incentivizing their residents to get vaccine jabs. Earlier, the state of West Virginia had announced a $100 savings bond for those getting vaccinated. Meanwhile, New Jersey is offering free beers to residents for taking the shot. #NewJersey Image

I am going to rant about taxes for a bit because that 2018 FOX interview with Cori Bush has me pissed, at her for not doing her homework and at FOX, Mitt Romney, and all the other tax propagandists who focus solely on federal taxes. Remember Romney's 47% who pay no taxes? A lie.
But it's a lie that goes over well as it comforts and flatters the wealthy by portraying them as the people grossly bearing the burden of paying for everything while 47% are freeloaders. Well, first off, everybody pays into Social Security and Medicare, even the undocumented.
and they will never receive those benefits they pay for. There is a small exception for those who work but earn so little all their taxes are refunded as an Earned Income Tax Credit. They way Republicans scream about EITC you would never know it was originally a GOP plan (Nixon)

Welcome to the #ArtOfTheGerrymander! 1/43

A Dem-map a day to explore:
* state political geography &
* unfairness of single-winner districts
@davesredist +2020 projections #ElectionTwitter

@JMilesColeman @mikemathieu @PoliticsWolf @DKElections @Redistrict…
2/43 Our running total starts: 5D-8R (skipping AK, DE, ND, SD, RI, VT, WY, HI, ID, WV).

NB: I try to maintain communities of interest & relatively compact maps; but compromise for D-maximization (may not comply with local rules). And I apply VRA as >50% primary (not total) pop.
3/43 #ArtOfTheGerrymander: #Utah

First off are some red states with competitive suburban seats e.g. Salt Lake City. I'd rate UT-04 as competitive by default, but would lean D with @RepBenMcAdams' incumbency. #ElectionTwitter

Running Total: 5D-11R-1?… ImageImageImageImage
