ll pourrait se passer durant les primaires républicaines US ce qu'on attendait.
Des candidates/candidats soutenus par #Trump battus. Mais pas par des conservateurs "modérés".
Par des encore plus extrémistes à droite.
Le trumpisme au-delà de Trump.…
2. Beaucoup, y compris dans la presse US, se concentrent sur le taux de réussite des soutiens officiels de #Trump dans les primaires républicaines. Mais ils oublient de regarder le contenu idéologique des candidats finalement élus, avec ou sans le soutien de l'ex-président...

This is going to be a long thread.🧵 #Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost released BCI case files from an officer-involved shooting last year in #Parma. He touted “full transparency” from the @OhioAG’s office. @DaveYostOH redacted names of 3 #SWAT officers who fired their weapons.
In June 2021, Kevin Giesel was shot & killed by officers from the Southwest Enforcement Bureau (SEB) #SWAT team during a 10-hour standoff at his house in #Parma. Giesel was a 64-year-old #Vietnam #veteran. He got into a shootout with #police officers.…
To be clear, I am in no way questioning why officers used deadly force or why a grand jury declined to indict the #police officers. I’m questioning the @OhioAG’s lack of transparency at a time when confidence in law enforcement is at an all-time low both in #Ohio & nationwide.

It's time for young people to take the stage. (🧵)

This election is important. More important than a lot of people think. Young people can change the course of history this November.

How, you ask? (1/6)
I got involved with the local party last year. The sad truth here in #Ohio (and other rural states across the nation) is that many districts in state legislatures are considered "solid R" and given up on by election experts.

This can change, trust me. (2/6)
I called my local Board of Elections in #ButlerCo. Turns out, no Dem was running. It's insane that so many elections go uncontested every single year.

We cannot continue to allow Republicans to walk into office, especially in districts where they think their seat is safe. (3/6)

On ne saurait mieux dire. Oui, à la mi-avril 2022, le parti républicain US est celui de #Trump et plus que jamais. Car dans les primaires, soutenu par lui ou pas, chacun joue à qui lui ressemble le plus. Et même si lui disparaissait, sa doctrine a triomphé…
2. Et quand on apprend hier soir le soutien officiel de #Trump à l'essayiste J.D Vance pour la sénatoriale d'Ohio, lui donnant sans doute 1 avantage décisif, on mesure cette victoire idéologique complète dans son parti du nationalisme identitaire…

Omicron is a deadly virus. Former UFC star 41 y.o. Chris "The Crippler" Leben from San Diego CA is recovering from COVID after being on life support. He declined to talk about his vaccination status. This was his second battle with COVID #TheySurvivedCovid…
“I was ready to tap out, and the reason I didn’t tap is because of my child … If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have had the fight to get through those days,” said Leben.
There is a disinformation campaign that young people are not affected by COVID-19 and that #Omicron is mild. These are both incorrect. Vaccination against COVID-19 protects against severe disease.

"Angela declined to say whether Matt is vaccinated, explaining that if he were not, people might attack them, and if he were, people might say the vaccine doesn’t work."

During the annual anti-choice 'March for Life' event Friday in D.C., neo-Nazi org Patriot Front showed up with about 30 members escorted by police. Earlier this month, we published a story highlighting how right-wing and republican attacks on abortion are escalating.
On October 28, 2021, the exterior electrical box of the sole abortion clinic in Toledo, #Ohio was set on fire. The Toledo Fire & Rescue Department investigation ruled it arson and found traces of an accelerant.
Also in Ohio, in an attempt to outlaw all abortions, House Bill 480 was introduced on November 2, 2021 to protect “unborn persons,” making it the most extreme bill to move through a state’s legislature in the recent string of bans popping up across the country.

Children infected with COVID-19 are at higher risk of developing diabetes.
This article published in June 2021 discussed two NIH-supported studies confirming SARS-CoV-2 can target and impair the body’s insulin-producing cells.
Type 1 diabetes occurs when beta cells in the pancreas don’t secrete enough insulin to allow the body to metabolize food optimally after a meal. As a result of this insulin insufficiency, blood glucose levels go up, the hallmark of diabetes.

#Ohio: In an attempt to outlaw all abortions, House Bill 480 was introduced on November 2, 2021 to protect "unborn persons," making it the most extreme bill to move through a state's legislature in the recent string of bans popping up across the country.
Other laws like Ohio’s new “Born-Alive Infant Protection Act” are also on the rise to further restrict #reproductiverights and spread “pro-life” ideologies.
On the other side of the aisle, a group of clinic escorts in Toledo work to protect patients and the freedom to access healthcare.

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?

Bismillah. Community update: a second IPT "spy" has voluntarily come forward, confessed and agreed to cooperate with us. He was not part of CAIR. He was an active volunteer in a large mosque who was invited to national community meetings & events. Details in the thread... 1/8
The individual has informed us that Steven Emerson paid him $3K per month to record prominent Muslim leaders; over $100K over 4 years. One of Emerson's goals, we're told, was protecting the Israeli govt by undermining Muslims engaged in political & human rights activism. 2/8
We are gathering and vetting additional information from this individual. We have also been directly alerting Muslim leaders and organizations he targeted. We will publicly release his name and additional information after we finish this process, God willing. 3/8

Bismillah. Important news: we have disrupted an anti-Muslim hate group's effort to spy on Muslim American organizations, including our Ohio chapter. We thank God for exposing this plot to us and we thank God for protecting the community from harm. Details in this thread.... 1/13
Last year, we learned extensive info about the inner workings of the so-called Investigative Project on Terrorism. IPT is an anti-Muslim, anti-Palestinian hate group founded by Steven Emerson, who largely faded from public view after a humiliating Fox News interview in 2015. 2/13
The evidence we received showed that Emerson’s hate group was flailing but active. Evidence indicated that IPT was monitoring speeches by Muslims & that Emerson was cursing, threatening and otherwise mistreating his staff for failing to produce enough Islamophobic content. 3/13

28 y.o. Kodie Edler from Findlay #Ohio was young & healthy. He intended to get vaccinated, but hadn't gotten around to it. He tested positive for COVID on 7/10. By 8/3, he was on ECMO and on 8/24, his only option for survival was a lung transplant. #TheySurvivedCovid
Edler has no memory of the 2½ months of his life when Corroto and countless others worked frantically to keep him alive.
The 28-year-old awoke sore and uncomfortable, unable to talk. Beneath his gown he’d discover a mustache-shaped incision, stretching armpit to armpit, where surgeons had opened him to remove a pair of lungs ravaged by COVID-19.

His sister Alanna wrote: "I hope no one else has to go through the heartbreak of losing a loved one due to this awful disease. It’s easy to think “oh it will never happen to me” until it does and it’s too late."
"Justin was a young healthy 29 year old man with no underlying conditions. This defies everything we’ve been told up to this point on who it effects the most"
