After years of my daughter receiving care at our local #hospital that is often based on #bias & is often subpar I have begun to reach out to different state agencies. The experiences that my daughter has had to experience over the last several years has been surreal 1/

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

Dr. John Leon Mari, 58, of Fargo #NorthDakota died suddenly from COVID on November 6. He was not vaccinated. His elderly father, Justo Leon Mari, 94, died with dementia three days later. #SoulsLostToCovid inforum.com/newsmd/coronav…
John Mari was a doctor of optometry and operated 20/20 Vision Express in Fargo.

Justo Mari, a native of the Philippines who was a physician and surgeon in North Dakota and Minnesota, retired nearly 30 years ago.
"Both John and wife Lynne came down with COVID, but her symptoms were worse than his, she said.

She, though, had been fully vaccinated against COVID. He had not, citing a lifelong fear of needles and doctors’ offices. Family members tried unsuccessfully to convince him"

I want to again express my concern to my senators @SenJohnHoeven and @kevincramer about the lack of transparency by the @CDCDirector @CDCInjury in the revising of the #OpioidGuidelines. Great harm has been done to those w #chronicpain in our state. @SanfordHealth 1/

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.

I've been analyzing US state #mortality data!

Tonight, let's start with comparing #SouthDakota and #NorthDakota!

#SD had 18% #excess #deaths, while #ND had a whopping 31%

As we know SD has the weakest Government #Stringency, while ND has stronger measures!

@govkristinoem
1/n
North Dakota had 31% vs the previous 3y average age-adjusted mortality.

@MLevitt_NP2013 @justin_hart @FatEmperor @AlexBerenson @EthicalSkeptic @tlowdon @Zigmanfreud @ianmSC @yinonw
Let's look at SD on a monthly basis. Note the shaded pink area is the Government Stringency. SD at the end of 2020 had the lowest stringency, but also significant excess deaths.

PETITION FOR TEXAS SOVEREIGN ACTION

Dear @GregAbbott_TX As NBCs of the United States for the preservation of the Union we petition you to call up the Texas Constitutional Militia, resubmit your case to SCOTUS, occupy all assets of Chinese nationalists suspected of high treason!
With the Constitutional Militia Mustered, SCOTUS will hear you case! and the other Patriot States will take similar actions to preserve these United States of America as a government of the people, by the people and for the people with the right to 1 legal vote per 1 voter.
Never has #TEXAS had a cause so just and righteous, so patriotic, so universal. For as Christ teaches, when we see America beaten up on the side of the road, we cannot pass by like the hypocrite and pretend his wounds do not need caring for. (cf. Luke 10:25-37)

⚠️NO SURPRISE: the surge of new #coronavirus cases is WORST in states whose leaders neglected to enforce virus containment efforts or failed to implement mask mandates, such as #SouthDakota and #NorthDakota, 2 of the 3 hottest #COVID19 zones in the world.

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
A relationship between policies and #coronavirus cases is CLEAR:

States with more consistent control policies—such as in New England—avoided a summer surge and are now having a smaller fall surge, as opposed to states that rolled them back very quickly like #Florida or #Texas.
#NorthDakota has made little effort to contain the #coronavirus.

For a while, its residents were spared. Now, nearly 1 in 10 North Dakotans have tested positive for #coronavirus — about a third of those in just the past 2 weeks — and **1 in 1,000 have DIED of #COVID19**.😱

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇

In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

This is the second State Health Officer #NorthDakota has lost. One needs to wonder if it is due to the politicians calling the shots vs steps being taken on firm scientific advice. #ND cases seem to increase. This week we saw change of direction 1/ governor.nd.gov/news/burgum-ac…
in an order designed to ensure that inds do not violate quarantine/contact guidelines. It seemed that the rescinding came after several legislators partook in a text conversation & then contacted @DougBurgum. Not sure 🤔 what happened BUT I will say that I feel 2/
there is very little transparency & that decisions are not being made on sound scientific & public health advice. I trust those working in public health & the many #physicians that have come forward. I trust #ND government very little at this point. We certainly r NOT #NDSmart 3/

I can not tell you how very furious I am with @SenKevinCramer statement. It to me is incredibly flippant. He should represent all those in #NorthDakota & some are very alarmed had #Trumps statements in re to the election 🗳 & yesterday’s statement on #TransitionOfPower. 1
That Cramer seemingly laughs this off is not ok. Re of who wins there must be a safe and dignified process in place. I am sad to see where our country is. I am sad to see people not calling out bad behavior of politicians- or should I say, politicians seem to be willing 2/
to call out bad behavior only if it is the opposing party. They become silent when it is in their own. I’d hope that politicians would have more morals, call out unacceptable behaviors & stand for democracy. 3/

Many places implemented temperature checks and people have willingly gone along, yet somehow asking people to wear masks is a ‘civil liberties’ issue. Continued research supports that this is one ☝🏼 of the best ways to 🛑 the spread, yet out & about the majority 2/
