Like many, I’ve had some extra fee time these days... After rebinging @theofficenbc and #theofficereunion I was inspired.

A thread of Trump’s handling of the #coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, as told by Michael Scott. #TheOffice
Way back in 2018, Trump decided it was a good idea to disassemble the #Pandemic Response Team – created by the Obama administration in case there was “an airborne disease that is deadly.” This can’t go wrong! #thiswaspreventable
Trump does nothing to replace this. He plays golf and insults people on Twitter – just the normal things that presidents do right?

The #KochNetwork, avatar of the tea party, rejects #shutdown protests politi.co/2XX4n4z via @politico AFP board member states “I think there's been a lesson...We saw what we wanted in the #teaparty. It didn’t work out like we’d like. And now we’re much more practical.”
Multiple conservative groups that have been longtime allies of the #KochNetwork network, such as FreedomWorks and #TeaParty Patriots, have led the #shutdown protests. Even the CEO of #ALEC has signed on.
Art Pope, owner of #NorthCarolina politicians, is a co-founder of AFP-NC with David Koch, and often called "Koch Jr". When asked about the #KochNetwork’s position on the current wave of #protests, Pope said “I’ll let them speak for themselves". #NCleg

1/ The quarantine is a cultural and political experiment: We're seeing just how quickly the U.S. can be dissolved. #ProtestLockdown

2/ If Americans stand down, the U.S. openly becomes a surveillance state overnight. LA and NYC mayors are already pushing out 'comfort' 🍼videos telling residents to activate themselves as surveillance extensions of the state. #ProtestTheLockdown

3/ Google, often first in helping authoritarian rule boot stomp a population, has also risen to the occasion along with Apple. Watch this tweet for a sub-thread on how Google and Apple help nations crush its civilian population.

#BREAKING

#Lithuania #Vilnius

Last week #Lithuanian #parliament adopted the state #budget for 2020. The main #financial document of the #state was approved by the majority of voters.
It is sad to see how #Lithuania is #suffering without #money. Absolute #chaos – this is how they say in #Lithuania about the new budget.
So, state budget revenues are planned in the amount of 11.559 billion euros, expenses – 12.705 billion euros.
The budget deficit will amount 2.9% of the planned gross domestic product. In other words, the #Lithuanian #draft hardly met the requirements of #fiscal #discipline. The #budget #deficit for #EU member states should not exceed 3% of GDP.

One of the 5 who died in Meerut that day was Zaheer Ahmed, shot in the head as he was sitting next to a beedi shop.

“I don’t know who engaged in the violence, but my husband didn’t,” his wife said. “Why did they kill my innocent husband? How can they kill innocent people?”

Morgen ist es soweit. Nach Jahrzehnten des #protests wird das #psychthg verabschiedet. Wir wollten würdige Ausbildungsverhältnisse haben. Wir wollten für unsere Arbeit bezahlt werden. Wir wollten einen geklärten Status haben. Wir wollten die Versorgung der KiJu sichern.
Wurden diese Erwartungen erfüllt? Ist nach 20 Jahren des Diskurs ein gut durchdachtes Gesetz entstanden?Leider nein. Eine Mindestvergütung wird als Erfolg verkauft und eine sozialversicherte Tätigkeit ist nicht vorgesehen. Kammermitglied dürfen wir immer noch nicht überall werden
Die Ausbildung besteht aus vielen Bausteinen. Die praktische Tätigkeit ist nur ein Teil. Wir müssen das #PT1 in den meisten Bundesländern in einem Jahr absolvieren. Wenn wir also 40 Stunden arbeiten, arbeiten wir 1/3 der Zeit ohne es uns anrechnen zu können.

🚨Pro-democracy activist in #Russia gets 4-year prison sentence for attending Moscow #protests for fair elections. Konstantin #Kotov becomes the latest political prisoner in Putin's war on dissent. Kotov aptly wore a #Sentsov t-shirt in his courtroom cage. m.activatica.org/blogs/view/id/…
Kotov is the first recent protester found guilty under #Russia's "3 strikes" 212.1 law criminalizing attending 3 protests. He had 72 hours to prepare for his snap show trial. Human rights org Memorial declared him a political prisoner. Outside Moscow court chants of #FreeKotov
Kotov was found guilty under the same 212.1 anti-protest law human rights activist Ildar Dadin went to prison for in 2016. I wrote about Dadin's case & how #Russia criminalizes freedom of speech & assembly.

#Russia: Over 600 people arrested in Moscow's brutal clampdown on pro-democracy #protests today. Russians are risking life & limb for the right to fair elections, to end the ban on opposition candidates for city council. Sheer numbers show how scared the Mayor is of people power.
