JUST IN: #BNNUS Reports.

Following the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, prosecutors asserted that a Pennsylvania woman associated with the far-right "Groyper" extremist movement was a member of the group that stormed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi)'s office. Image
She was found guilty of several federal charges on Monday. Riley June Williams was convicted of six federal charges, including civil disorder.
Two other charges, including "aiding and abetting the theft" of a laptop that was taken from Pelosi's office suite during the uprising, were not resolved by the jury, though.

Es ist übrigens ein gutes Zeichen, dass die Bürger von #Pennsylvania doch noch #JohnFetterman statt #MehmetOz gewählt haben.

Vergleich?

Se l'incertezza è il fattore dominante dell'anno, allora le #Midterms2022 non potevano fare eccezione. La politica #Usa si ferma per guardarsi allo specchio, per scattare una foto al giro di boa della grande corsa che condurrà tra due anni (sì, solo 2) alle presidenziali.

🇺🇸 Cosa c'è in palio?
La risposta corretta è la seguente: il rinnovo di 435 deputati alla Camera e di 35 seggi al Senato. E poi 36 poltrone da governatore dello Stato, per non parlare delle centinaia di referendum statali e delle migliaia di cittadine chiamate ad indicare il

🇺🇸 #USA: le 4 sfide più interessanti per il Senato delle #Midterms2022

1/5
In #Pennsylvania il vicegovernatore Dem John Fetterman, vittima di un recente ictus che gli ha causato serie difficoltà a esprimersi, sfida il medico Mehmet Oz, volto noto della TV.
Per @FiveThirtyEight questa sfida è "toss-up", cioè con un esito molto incerto.

2/5 ImageImage
In #Arizona l'ex astronata Mark Kelly, senatore Dem uscente, sfida il trumpiano Blake Masters. Questo è stato per oltre 30 anni il seggio di John McCain e nel 2020 Biden in questo Stato ha vinto con un margine dello 0,3%.
Per @FiveThirtyEight anche questa sfida è "toss-up".

I candidati repubblicani negli Stati chiave cercano sempre di più di bloccare i voti via posta espressi dai democratici, che accusano: si tratta di tentativi di impedire il voto dei gruppi più svantaggiati. Thread a seguire 🧵⤵️
In #Pennsylvania, la Corte Suprema statale ha dato ragione al Comitato Nazionale Repubblicano sul fatto che i funzionari elettorali non devono contare le schede su cui l'elettore ha trascurato di apporre la data sulla busta esterna.
In particolare anche nei casi in cui le schede sono arrivate prima del giorno delle elezioni e quindi altrimenti sarebbero pienamente legittime. Di conseguenza, migliaia di schede votare via posta sono state accantonate, tanto da poter cambiare il risultato in una sfida serrata.

A man who lost a 2021 Pennsylvania election made a federal case out of it and Tuesday the U.S. Supreme Court overruled a state appellate court to side with him. #SCOTUS #Pennsylvania #Election
David Ritter lost a 2021 election to become a Pennsylvania judge by five votes after 257 absentee ballots without dates were counted….
…. Since the Keystone State’s election law requires a date be entered on absentee ballots, Ritter argued in a lawsuit filed in state court those undated ballots should not have been counted.

Meine Reise zu #LNG und #Fracking durch die #USA geht zu Ende. Hier auf den Stufen des Lincoln Memorials hat Martin Luther King Jr. seine „I have a dream“-Rede gehalten. Ein guter Ort, um über die Erkenntnisse dieser Reise nachzudenken. Denn auch Rassismus ist ein Thema. (1/14) ImageImage
An der Ostküste habe ich in #Chester eine Community von People of Color getroffen, die einem Umwelt-Rassismus ausgesetzt sind. Hier soll ein #LNG-Terminal für den Export von #Fracking-Gas gebaut werden, nicht in den reicheren und weißen Vororten von #Philadelphia neben an. (2/x)
Dies ist, was Zulene von der Bürgerinitiative #Chester Residents Concerned for Quality Living unserem @Bundeskanzler dazu zu sagen hat. (3/x)

Wie läuft das ab, wenn für den Export von #Fracking-Gas ein neues #LNG-Terminal geplant wird? Das habe ich mir in #Chester angeschaut, einer Kleinstadt an der U.S.-Ostküste nahe #Philadelphia. Hier treffe ich Zulene von den Chester Residents Concerned for Quality Living. (1/x) Image
#Chester ist eine arme Stadt. Hier leben viele People of Color. Schon andere schmutzige Industrien wurden hier angesiedelt, zB eine Müllverbrennungsanlage. Offenbar glaubt die Industrie, dass es nicht viel Widerstand gibt. Reichere und weiße Gegenden bleiben verschont. (2/x)
Nun soll noch ein #LNG-Terminal für den Export von #Fracking-Gas aus #Pennsylvania hinzu kommen. Dafür fehlen bislang Kapazitäten an der Ostküste. Getrieben wird dies auch vom deutschen Energiehunger. (3/x)

@IndivisibleLNH @maddow @MaddowBlog @allinwithchris @thereidout @BucksCoBeacon @IndivisibleTeam @pa_indivisible @LetsTurnPABlue @IndivisiblePHL @ulleryatintell Here, the brave #NewJersey members of the #FettermanFlotilla venture into the open water (of the wide Delaware River) to retrieve the quack doctor, and save #Pennsylvania from his #MAGAextremist agenda!

#FettermanIsTheBetterman #NoOZ
Now the #FettermanFlotilla disembarks from the #Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River, bearing the #MAGAextremist #GOP candidate away from the Commonwealth, and back towards his #GardenState home (one of 10? How can he keep track?)

#FettermanIsTheBetterman #NoOZ
But wait!
It appears that a new crew of #Crudite awaits the #FettermanFlotilla on the #NewJersey banks of the Delaware River!!

Will they refuse landing to our volunteer fleet, #DrOZ and his political baggage?

So, you are following the #TrumpRally tweets. Hi. I live here. I work here. I love here in Rural and North East #Pennsylvania. We've knocked on 45k doors since March as @acttogethernepa.
The NY Times just said we are the center of political universe.

We know what do.
We build people power to use people power by endorsing candidates like these leaders who will work so that all Americans have the tools and opportunities to realize their dreams.

Winning #elections is part of the long arc of work we are doing so that we have an #economy that works for all, communities that welcome any and a green Earth for everyone. We also have to rebuild a politics of people, of durable engagement, of forging resilient trust networks.

Now @POTUS is delivering a speech in #Pennsylvania about #GunViolence. Meanwhile, @WhiteHouse has just announced he'll travel Monday to Boston, #Massachusetts "to discuss the unprecedented investments in his Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that are building a better America."
To the "brave right-wing Americans" who believe one needs to own guns to defend their country, @POTUS says: "If you want to fight against a country you need an F-15 (jet)."
"There's a mass shooting in this country every single day," adds @POTUS, meaning that kids in schools need to be taught to "duck and cover."

👏🏼#Pennsylvania, the choice is clear: elect REAL leader @JohnFetterman over snake-oil salesman “Dr” Mehmet Oz, who recklessly lobbied the Trump WH to push #hydroxychloroquine as a “treatment” for #COVID19.

State Senator Doug Mastriano, Donald Trump’s pick in the Republican Primary for Governor of #Pennsylvania, spent thousands to lead a busload of protesters to the January 6 “protest” at the Capitol in Washington. gregpalast.com/two-january-6t…
His chosen running mate for Lt. Governor (PA elects Gov and Lt. Gov separately) is Teddy Daniels. Daniels was also at the January 6th Capitol protests. gregpalast.com/two-january-6t…
In 2021, PIF photojournalist @ZDRoberts filmed Daniels speaking at the Unification Church — made famous by their worship services that include AR-15’s. Here is the wannabe Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania...

@TheOfficerTatum @Kathy4Truth 13 months ago she declared her run for Senate, not 100% sure but I believe even earlier than McCormick and Dr Oz whom were the front runners.

@TheOfficerTatum @Kathy4Truth March 2022

The 5 candidates from 50,000 feet all look and sound decent. People have been distracted by COVID, Fauci, Biden, lockdowns, masks, Rona stuff, Ukraine, Inflation etc.

McCormick leads.
@TheOfficerTatum @Kathy4Truth McCormick gets backing by Ted Cruz, Pompeo, Sean Parnell others.

As a businessman and Military Veteran pretty solid.
