Today, statehouse #Ohio #Republicans formally introduced their regressive, anti-voter legislation that goes even further than the voter suppression measures in Georgia and Florida.…
Despite numerous concerns from Ohio voting rights activists, Republicans in Columbus are moving ahead with measures that attack Ohioans’ right to vote and confuse voters at the polls.…
The backward Republican legislation would make it harder for Ohioans to vote by:

Saagar Enjeti claims the public health syst is contributing to "anti-vax" sentiment across the country. And at 5:08 in this vid, he attacks me. His claim? Masks & social distancing aren't key to lowering #COVID19 risk, mixed messages frm @CDCgov suck.
2/ Enjeti calls me "anti-science".
Self-described "populist right" advocate -- a politics buff, not a scientist or MD.…
He has never been a fan of masking and social distancing, and he argues that the plateau we've reached, downturn in many States..
3/ due to the #COVID19 #vaccines.
He blames @POTUS @CDCgov & #TonyFauci for mixed messages leading people to opt for masks etc instead of vax.
The problems w/his argument are many. 1: There is a large overlap between anti-maskers & anti-vaxers. In Dec2020 polls it was..

Reports on #Iran-#SaudiArabia intelligence contact in #Iraq.

#Zarif leaves #Qatar. #Saudi FM lands in #Doha, invites Emir Sheikh Tamim to meet the King in #Riyadh.

#Tehran (& the #US?) appears to try to take the #Gulf on board.

This could isolate #Israel in a revived #JCPOA.
Some in #Vienna appear to want to isolate #Israel. But officials in #Gulf/#GCC face a difficult choice. They have to weigh if a compromise on #JCPOA and weakening Israel's position will resolve the problem of #Iran's malign activities? Or will it be a temporary solution?
The #US is directly engaging #GCC on #JCPOA, while FM #Zarif engages #SaudiArabia through #Qatar and #Iraq.

If the #Gulf comes aboard, #Israel and #Republicans will be effectively sidelined.

We all know @GovPierluisi and @pnp_pr have engaged in a coup for years, leveling their players into power on the inside, and passing bills like Act 60 to destroy Puerto Rico’s economy from the outside. Then he offers statehood as a Hegelian solution to the problem he caused…
… finishing the job @ricardorossello and Jenniffer Gonzalez started. Once they’ve succeeded in draining Puerto Rico dry as they’ve done for years, if Puerto Rico does become a state, watch how fast they leave to Florida or Hawaii, or even leave the country…
We know that this Old Regressive Party has never cared for Puerto Rico or Puerto Ricans, and their track record proves that. All the years of corruption, of poverty, of stagnation, yet these vampires glut themselves on the lifeblood of Gran Borinquen.

Save Democracy, Senate Democrats Must Kill The Filibuster

Political unity between these parties is not possible given the starkly, indeed diametrically, opposed positions the parties have taken with respect to our system of democracy itself

#Republicans oppose democracy

They have used every means possible to undermine democracy in order to secure for themselves the power of the U.S. government.

They continue, for example, to pursue their historically aggressive agenda of gerrymandering and voter suppression.

Thus far, since last November’s election, GOP lawmakers in 28 states have advanced over 100 bills aimed at restricting access to voting.

They are not lovers of democracy.

They are still lying about the election (#StopTheSteal)

They remain racist, homophobic, etc...

As the snow melts in #Texas I hope we can all pause and reflect on the many implications of the #TexasBlackout.

In this THREAD I hope to address them all.

First let me express my sincere and profound condolences to all those Texans who have suffered devastating loss.
While it's been a hoot to bash someone as hateful as Ted #CancunCruz, the recent events in Texas have implications much more profound than the actions of one idiotic US Senator. I'll try to break it down into 3 sections.
#TexasBlackout #DemCast #EveryVoice #FreshVoicesRise
1. #ClimateChange/US Infrastructure preparedness.
2. A little history. Why and how did this happen?
3. Performative Governance/The Blame Game!

Oddly (or manipulatively?), an additional #Republican who voted to impeach #Trump--#SusanCollins--claims she opposes #TPP (now called "#CPTPP")…yet somehow blames Trump for TPP—even though Trump formally withdrew USA from TPP?

This brings the total number of #Republicans who tried to impeach #Trump, recently...who seem to *either support TPP or mislead people about the history of TPP* to be about 5/7...

#TPPInsiders are BIPARTISAN.

#EpicFail. We are not a #SovereignNation anymore. We are not a #Democracy anymore. #Insurrection will be repeated at every election, but they won't wait till then. This was just the rehearsal. #Republicans did this because they knew they could never get legit elected again. #Coup
Why don't you give the rest of those #CapitolPolice & your 400 intimidated staffers more medals? Lots of good that will do when someone comes to kill them! You sweep it under the rug. No wonder some police felt so betrayed they went home & killed themselves. They should all quit.
@LeaderMcConnell says "Prosecute him!" b/c that way, the full extent of #McConnell's involvement in the #coup will not be laid bare. Sure #ProsecuteTrump, that ought to be easy after #MAGATerrorists come back w/30K guns in May as they promised & #QAnonShaman is confirmed as #AG. Image

Excellent @TIME piece to read about the mighty, impeccable & integrated political machine - I've cited in #TheChoice back in September- that defeated the #Trump campaign during fall 2020.

#Republicans follow ideals, their opponents organize. However..…
The Time article is perhaps accurate on names, facts & very educative. But in the larger picture, it serves as a "mega decoy" to hide the wider more & deeper tale behind it. It's meat thrown to satisfy readers' hunger, filled with details, while the real dragon escape attention.
The writer(s) of the @TIME piece lionized the "actors" of the opposition & imputed all "victories" to their zeal to defeat the "imagined" hysterical "Trump threat." The actions by the players cited are apparently accurate, but the uber players & real timeframes were "redacted."👥

Providing #COVID relief should be bipartisan. But if Republicans decide to oppose this urgent & necessary legislation, #Democrats will have to move forward without them. 1

If #Republicans refuse to work to bring urgently needed relief to American workers and families..House Democrats’ proposed budget resolution provides an alternative path for the #AmericanRescuePlan. 2
Priority #1 is delivering vital #COVID relief ASAP. With @POTUS’s #AmericanRescuePlan We can finally say “Help is on the way.” 3

Slavery was Abolished
13th Ammendment
added to the Constitution
Signed by,
#RepublicanParty @POTUS
Abraham Lincoln

See Thread
Slavery was Abolished after a brutal 4 year Cival War

Abraham Lincoln
In Sept 1862 issued the
"Emancipation Proclamation" and should have ended slavery
Lincolns Goal was a restoration of the Union.
Lincol wanted all men and Woman be free
The South used Slave Labour for cotton, tabbaco, wool, maids, cook, clean ect

Southern States rebelled against the union
The Soutern States broke from the Union.

Instead of freeing slaves, the captured free slaves and enslaved them again.

On January 20, #KamalaHarris became the first ever female vice president of the #UnitedStates 🇺🇸

What does her arrival in the White House mean for gender equality in #US politics? And will a female president be next?
President #JoeBiden has signed a raft of new executive orders to curb the #Covid19 #pandemic 🇺🇸🦠

As @WassimCornet reports, travellers to the #US will be required to quarantine on arrival while #masks will be mandated on many domestic trains, planes and buses ⤵️
@WassimCornet 🇺🇸 The measures are part of #Biden's national strategy that is outlined in a 200-page document that foresees scaling up #vaccinations, testing, returning students to school and rebuilding trust with the public among other goals 💉😷

I have a dream speech might be my fav speech

so many times since I lost my meds or watched disabled Americans discriminated, or thought of hateful riots

MLKs speech came to my mind

#MLKDay #MartinLutherKingDay #MartinLutherKingJr #MartinLutherKingJrDay
In a sense, we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence (Yeah), they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.
This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men (My Lord), would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note

Just look at the confederacy. trump and the Republican Party are a confederacy of: racists, whites supremacists, xenophobes, obstructionists, hypocrites, misogynists conspiracy theorists, greed, incompetence, lust for power and insurrectionists hell bent on
trying to overthrow an imperfect democracy.
Prosecute these confederates. #trumptreason #traitors #maga #thugs #idiots #criminals #republicans #antiamerican

#Republicans threaten violence if Trump faces repercussions — but it was impunity that moved his mob

#Trump incited violence, #GOP-ers enabled and participated in his crimes

The flaws in this let-the-terrorists win argument should be immediately evident

Trump supporters already violently tried to overthrow the government — not because Trump was impeached, but because they reject the results of a democratic election and believe he should be illegally
Republican logic would suggest that democracy itself should be thrown out because a small number of bullies demand it. They certainly wouldn't accept this logic if foreign terrorists attacked the U.S. Capitol, and so it shouldn't be taken seriously now.
