All the @GOP knows is violence. #Republicans don't know conversation and @TheDemocrats are too scared to call out and challenge these people.
"But Justin," I hear you #Democrats voices say in my head, which is probably a problem I should look into, "what would you do to combat this?" A simple ad in his district and you can have this for free, @TheDemocrats.
The @GOP talk about protecting lives, but have you ever notice their ads are always showing violent ways to get things done. Hunting and killing #RHINOs, burning down @JoeBiden's policies, and never explaining what policies they offer instead?

1. From January 21 2021, Sidney Powell Is Launching A Super PAC… #Republicans #SidneyPowell via @jakepalmieri
2. If #45's attorney is the PAC's treasurer, I don't see how they aren't considered to be coordinating with his campaign. That may be why he hasn't announced.
3. From the article:

A Jan. 22 filing with the Federal Elections Commission shows Powell as the entity’s Custodian of Records, while former Trump campaign attorney Jesse Binnall serves as the Super PAC’s Treasurer.

.@speakerbowers @GaSecofState @GabrielSterling I want to thank you all for what you did to protect the Constitution and our vote. As I like to tell Trump and his following, they are the RINOs, what you see are real Republicans standing up for the Constitution. >
Real Republicans stand up for things that Trump does not. The 6th should have shown them that. A President trying to overthrow the Constitution and did do and has done everything he could to "cancel" our votes. >2
A President that sends his hordes to the Capitol to kill anyone he was against... like Mike Pence... to destroy our REAL electors' votes. A President that was happy that the police were getting beat the sh*t out of them by "his people." A President that condemned our> 3

Update on the Ongoing Federal Response to #COVID19: Current Status and Future Planning

Tough questions from Sen. Burr -- "Tell me what the plan is for ending this epidemic."
Action steps?
As usual, @SenRandPaul is asking #Fauci hostile questions. His issue today is questioning whether there is any evidence that any #COVID19 #vaccines benefit children in any way. "Where is the proof?"
And now he's onto side effect risks...

I pulled that chart, @dominiqus -- forgetting it was from a David Leonhardt @nytimes column that @gregggonsalves correctly disputed. I acted hastily and apologize.
But many public health leaders, from the @WhiteHouse down, have been fighting to address..
2/...the racial & economic divides in US healthcare & social determinants that are at the root of wide disparities, to our collective national shame. #COVID19 lifted some eyelids, but as you said, we need to tackle far more.
Do you think any PH efforts have helped at all?

Did you know the @TheGrayzoneNews story about #PaulMason is tied to the #LabourParty? Here is a thread that explores the anti-left / abusive outfit Labour have outsourced lots of former staffers work to: #ValentProjects

The report by @KitKlarenberg displays secret communications between #PaulMason and various intelligence community wonks, in a coordinated effort to smear indy media, and 'take down the left' - Corbynites especially. Because apparently, 'anti-imperialism' is BAD. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤡

Mixing deplatforming, "full nuclear legal" (we've had a taste of that from the #LabourParty), and various other abusive and dehumanising techniques, this 'intel contractor' was happily working with #PaulMason and others to put leftists at risk.

In order to become a hair stylist in the US, the candidate must attend a training course, take written and practical exams, pay a license fee and renew that license every few years, and take continuing ed classes. /1
To buy a gun in many US states, all the purchaser needs is cash. Not every state requires a permit, though they do require a background check IF the gun is purchased from a dealer. Online sales and gun shows DO NOT require a background check. /2
Only 7 states require safety training in order to own a gun: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, Washington, California, and Hawaii. /3

Not to knock Jamelle Bouie - perhaps the best of the NYT's op-ed writers - but there are several recent, superb books analyzing how this has been done...
One is Democracy in Chains by Nancy MacLean, about James McGill Buchanan, a famed economist who concluded democracy was a problem b/c it would tend to lead to an over-investment in the public sector (yeah, you read that correctly); thus American democracy would have to be curbed.
Accordingly, Buchanan figured out devious ways to make US democracy decidedly undemocratic; and the Koch Brothers financed enacting the vision. Here's a NYT book review of Democracy in Chains:…

Here's just a small list of who #Republicans are putting on the ballot across the country:

Eric Greitens, Senator. Ex-governor of Missouri. He resigned after sexual misconduct and campaign finance allegations. His ex-wife filed claims of emotional and physical abuse. /1
Charles W. Herbster, Governor of Nebraska. Trump endorsed, accused of sexual assault. He lost his primary. /2
Herschel Walker, Senator, Georgia. Walker has numerous claims against him of domestic violence, including holding a gun to his ex-wife's head. Trump endorsed. /3

One of the #Louisiana legislators pushing for a full ban on #abortion says "Louisiana law has always been about protecting the babies and protecting the women."

Let's see if that's true.

First, with a report by the state's own Department of Health. /1
One of the report's recommendations in 2018 was to "Assure access to comprehensive reproductive health and contraceptive services; promote pregnancy readiness in women with chronic disease."… points out that "Louisiana has among the highest rate of death for pregnant women in the U.S. One of the reasons, according to new research, is the lack of maternal care in many areas of the state"

It's no coincidence that the states eager to keep women from controlling their own reproduction also refuse to care for those women or their children.
Compare the states ready to ban abortion with a map of states that refused to expand #Medicaid.
The maps are overly simplistic in showing states' expansions of #Medicaid, and this thread will explain some of what's complicated.

In essence, many states led by #Republicans didn't want to expand a program that helps pregnant women, kids, and the frail elderly. Voters did.
Let's take those anti-abortion states that "have expanded Medicaid" in alphabetical order.

So, first, Arkansas.

#Arkansas led the way in requiring people on #Medicaid to work. Their unique plan also disenrolled people who didn't meet the work requirement.

Constitutional Right
to a free press. Where’s the uproar? Was it really about your constitutional rights or was it just so you can carry a gun around to compensate for a lack of intellect or physical attributes? Ten Democrat Senators worked to undermine your rights & you are remaining silent. WTF
Or maybe it’s because those senators worked with your boy Trump. Is this why you’re not demanding that your constitutional rights be protected or is the 1st amendment not as important as your right to bear arms?

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

America, we have to talk about this:…
This poll compared #Republican #Democrats & Independent opinions related to the #Russian war on #Ukraine and the results are shocking.
When asked to name the two national or world leaders they dislike most, GOP:👇

2/ #Democrats had a very different list of dislikes, predictably. If you combine their 1st & 2nd choice top picks, 76% of Dems rank #Putin at the top.

3/ Only one question found Americans, regardless of Party affiliation, in near-unanimity -- fear of nuclear war with #Russia .

@whatkindofhell1 @johncardillo You don't know what happened either. No one knows because the media will never tell the whole truth, left/right, it doesn't matter. The media is always going to skew a narrative in one direction or another in support of the preferred agenda.
#Democrats #Republicans #Fakenews
@whatkindofhell1 @johncardillo In case you missed it over the last year, the only thing happening in America was decline and unrest. The Democrats continuously herald radically unsustainable and unconstitional ideas aimed solely at lining their own interests and fraudulently holding power indefinitely.
@whatkindofhell1 @johncardillo Nothing has improved under Biden. America isn't secure. Whether you can't see past the medias protection or not; the truth is within your reach.
Biden isn't respected and holds next to zero political influence; Biden was only an already paid-for asset installed through wide

If you followed #FreedomConvoy, even supported it, did you really understand danger it poses to Canada? Maybe you waved away extremist elements, saying just a few "bad apples". You'd be deluding yourself. It's time to scratch below the surface, start here:
Those various flags seen throughout the protest. They weren't one-offs or bad apples, they were embedded in the protest from the start. You saw them:
#Trump flags, Confederate flags, 3% flags, &, yes, Swastika flags (if you have one Nazi in a crowd, you've got a crowd of Nazis).
Think this is an exaggeration? Maybe start to examine what's actually driving these groups. Organizers of #TruckConvoy have a history of extremist views, from #Wexit to disgusting racist bigotry and hatred. It wasn't hidden, you just ignored it.
Start with #CanadaUnity

1/ The politicization of #Antisemitism is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to the Jewish community. In recent years it has been used as a club by both the left and right to smear others with whom they disagree. I'm not sure which side is more guilty of it.
2/ So I wanted to make this thread to go through some of the major problems this has created for the #Jewish community. First, throwing around the word #antisemitism has watered down the word. Maybe you didn't mean for this to happen, but it seems it has.
3/ If everyone is an antisemite, nobody is an antisemite. That means that this word has been used and abused to the point where it's starting to have no real meaning. And don't get me started on issues about using the term 'Racism' for the hatred of Jews.

Here's how it works - the guy on the right has Kompromat on the guy on the left, who in turn has Kompromat on various American politicians, many #Republicans but some Democrats as well.
Basically, we have entered an age of pervasive political corruption. Sexual Kompromat is one of the most common Kompromat tools. Cults often use it, because it's highly effective. And it just so happens that American Christianity is being devoured by a heavily cultic movement...
I often use the term "Third Wave" Christianity to identify this movement, because that's the term used by the top authorities on global Christianity (such as Barrett & Johnson, in World Christian Trends AD30 - AD2200.) Secular journalists, researchers & watchdog groups almost...

So I finally got around to listening to @POTUS @JoeBiden's press conference this morning and have a few miscellaneous thoughts (in thread) for the #MSM: @ABC @CBSNews @NBCNews @CNN @MSNBC @nytimes @USATODAY @WSJ
@POTUS @JoeBiden @ABC @CBSNews @NBCNews @CNN @MSNBC @nytimes @USATODAY @WSJ Why do you insist on ignoring the fact that this administration has accomplished more in 1 year than any other president in history & certainly more than #TFG did in four years: American Rescue Plan; Infrastructure; Economy booming; Unemployment at an all time low; 75% vax rate.
And he has accomplished this with little to no support from the obstructionist @GOP, whose sole public policy is to cock-block everything the President wants to do to help the American people. THAT should be your story.

The Lesson of January 6: Zero-Sum Racism is the Biggest Threat to U.S. Democracy.…
By tracking the hundreds of insurrectionists who have been arrested over the past year, researchers from @UChicago were able to conclude that the rioters’ primary driver was “fear of the ‘great replacement’, the belief that the rights of minorities will overtake that of whites.”
Despite universal condemnation in Washington during the violent siege, on the next day, the majority of the House #Republican caucus voted to do what the mob wanted: refuse to certify the election results.

A day in the Life of Sue Republican -by Kathy Joe North
"Sue gets up at 6 a.m. and fills her coffeepot with water to prepare her morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. Image
With her first swallow of coffee, she takes her daily medication. Her medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised.
All but $10 of her medications are paid for by her employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance - now Sue gets it too.
She prepares her morning breakfast, bacon and eggs.
