1/9 I got a small chortle out of this headline, but there's a darker story behind it:

China announces retaliatory sanctions against Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz

2/9 You may recall that in June, John Bolton's book was leaked and it was revealed that Donald Trump not only didn't care about human rights in China, but actually SUPPORTED Chinese concentration camps for millions of Uighur Muslims.

3/9 Trump Says He Avoided Punishing China Over Uighur Camps to Protect Trade Talks

“Well, we were in the middle of a major trade deal,” the president said, supporting an account by his former national security adviser John R. Bolton.

1/13 COVID-19 is not "going away."

In fact, the more we learn about COVID-19, the worse it is.

A slew of studies are showing the coronavirus damages us & lingers in ways we did not expect.

2/13 Brain damage is a major worry.

Experts have confirmed that Covid-19 can cause neurological complications including stroke, nerve damage, & potentially fatal brain inflammation – even if the patients don’t show severe respiratory symptoms.

3/13 New studies are also showing that many patients have persistent symptoms as much as 60 days after being declared "over" COVID-19, leading to beliefs it may be a chronic illness.

1/ Truth and reconciliation are sequential. This is something that white people must come to grips with, too many white folks are inclined to want to just skip over the uncomfortable truth part to get to reconciliation.

2/ That's not how it works. It is why we have these recurring cycles of violence going back generations, because white people can and do opt out of really wanting to know.
3/ Until something happens where they can't, but even then instead of confronting the uncomfortable truth of our shared past they choose to opt out by making it about themselves, and thus we have "All Lives Matter" intended to invalidate the lived experiences of black people.

I need to say something though, as I begin writing, I'm not at all certain what it is. I'm tired. I'm fed up. I'm angry. I'm sad. Rioting is not the solution, though I'm at a loss for a better one. Clearly, working within the system is not working and 1/8

1/19 Medical experts agree that a major requirement to contain the coronavirus pandemic is inceased testing & contact tracing.

The Trump regime is not only doing the exact opposite of that, it's actively hindering that effort.

#GeeksResist #DemCast #OneVoice1 #WhereAreTheTests
2/19 Early on in March, while the numbers in some countries were under-reported due to them being overwhelmed, U.S. intelligence accused China of intentionally under-reporting its total coronavirus cases and deaths.

What country would do such a thing?

fortune.com/2020/04/01/chi…
3/19 It turns out we would.

Even as we accused China of doing so, the coronavirus was spreading through U.S. military overseas, and the Pentagon ordered installations to stop reporting coronavirus cases.

We came together as a State & did EVERYTHING that we were supposed to & could do to flatten the curve

We were lead by a strong, honest excellent governor

We did this to protect ourselves & to contain the spread so it did not get out of control in other parts of the country

“For those of you complaining about Trump being blamed for the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic -

a little history lesson for everyone on both sides of the political divide.

It’s important that we understand the truth, especially when we vote in November

In December 2013, an 18-month-old boy in Guinea was bitten by a bat and died a brutal death a day later. After that, there were five more fatal cases. When Ebola spread out of the Guinea borders into neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone in July 2014, President Obama activated

I love my kid, Angela.

She is smart, funny, strong willed & has a heart as big as the world.

We always encouraged her to stand up, make her voice heard, challenge the status quo & authority...even us. And, by God, for better or worse, she ran with that HARD😂🤣

And, like I said, I love her & I admire the woman she is becoming.

The president of the United States is a stochastic terrorist.

Specific orders become unnecessary when highlighting targets—zealots infer dictums and act.

My hope is that by visualizing the lines connecting Trump to his targets we can puncture his unaccountability. #OneVoice1 🧵
Here is a graphic showing the command structure of stochastic terror.
Hierarchal command structures form relatively concrete links between individuals to form one cohesive unit which acts as a body. “Chain of command” is a term for this.

Stochastic command forms these links too, but they’re harder to conceptualize, as it’s a subtle new phenomenon.

Made a tweet, regretted a typo, made my way outside. Sun was bright, bad news in the air. Worried about concentration camps in America while I hung out a bit and wondered if I’d see my neighbor.

My neighbor who survived Salzwedel, Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz.

#OneVoice1 🧵
Every time I see my neighbor she tells me stories. Sometimes one I’ve heard before. But I always stop and listen. She’s walking wisdom.

94 years old and poppin like a boss. But shit man, I’m pretty sure her sister—also a survivor—is like 97.

I know right? Pretty awesome.
Sometimes my neighbor shows me her tattoo. It’s from Auschwitz. She never cowers from its ink, she shows me her mark bravely.

Neither should we cower. Let us face the past bravely. All we need to do is listen.

So listen.

Listen while I learn, and we can learn together.

I was born into a cult I cannot name. You’ve heard of them. I can’t say their name b/c they scour coverage and I would risk attack. I am known to them, as is my family. I must protect my family but I also must share what I know.

The GOP has become just like them.

#OneVoice1 🧵
This cult holds people against their will. It segregates its own into castes, so’s to profit from free labor. It holds power and control above all else. To deviate from their dictates is to risk expulsion or death. This cult structuralizes itself against dissent.

Sound familiar?
This cult will slime your character and turn your family against you. They divide even the closest relations—parents, children—at the slightest hint of deviation from their views. I am fortunate not to have been raised in one of their churches.

Sound familiar?

You know what they’re trying to do? They’re trying to squeeze out players. Vaping. Now CBD. Don’t be surprised when new alternatives get big and gobble up the spaces. Same thing happened w/ online gambling (poker). Hell, the internet!

Here’s a history and overview. #OneVoice1 🧵
This is how our economy is exploited; it’s a “pump and dump” on a societal scale. The same mobs are crashing storefronts, but now it’s big corporations racketing the shit out of small–midsized businesses. In every sector. Soon there will be no opportunity left—we’re almost there.
To those who say “This is how it is, that’s how it’s played, the economy is rigged…”

You’re absoforkintootly right.

At a certain point, corps—money aggregates—get large enough to “bend” the markets. They have gravity.

I call them Death Stars of Capitalism.

1/5 Donald Trump, aka John Barron, aka David Dennison, is telling us "do not believe any article or story you read or see that uses “anonymous sources” having to do with trade or any other subject."

This is more than an attack on the #FreePress.

#GeeksResist #DemCast #OneVoice1
2/5 It is an attack on facts.

On reality.

And on the #whistleblower.

Trump famously spreads disinformation with phrases like "people are saying", invoking phantom polls and friends and "everybody knows" when he wants to lie.

So he has no problem with "anonymous sources."
3/5 His problem is when others use REAL anonymous sources, like the #FreePress, law enforcement, or Congress, for all of whom these sources are vital to preserving our Democratic liberties by obtaining information people would otherwise not share for fear of reprisal or censure.

1/ Ohio bill HB413 - 1 of the most aggressive anti-women bills in history, orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges (among other actions the bill defines as felonies). The two sponsors - one a woman - #RepCandiceKeller

#OneVoice1
2/ And the other, #RepRonHood - either do not know or care that such a procedure is impossible & would further endanger the lives of women with this life-threatening condition. They could GAF if families already in emotional pain are further traumatized.
3/ These two, together with the other 19 bill sponsors, apparently believe that a little thing called research isn’t part of their responsibility when drafting legislation for their state. That several are women makes it more egregious. Are you hearing me Tracy @Richardson4OH ?

The Intersectionality of Control

(As pertains to authoritarian lockdown of shared resources vital to continued human civilization.)

A thread in 3 parts:

I. Social Drivers
II. Inciting Techniques
III. False Flags vs. Real Solutions

#OneVoice1 🧵
DISCLAIMER: With this thread I seek to dissect the 2019 manifestation of white nationalism on a global scale. Therefore, “global white nationalism” refers not to localized racism or violence, but the collectivized, global nature of such threats today, which is unique in history.
I. Social Drivers

Global white nationalism is founded not on racism but the climate crisis.

Ethnonationalists—perhaps unwittingly—serve to protect capital interests while capital interests abet racism as a tactic.

Both misrepresent white identity as a means for human survival.
