In this #COVID19 crisis, some worry about having a eugenics nutjob like Cummings in charge... Before rubbishing this as alarmist, please consider Charles Trevelyan, the Treasury official placed in charge of relief during the Irish famine in the1840s. ⬇️😠✊🦠 #ToriesOut 🇪🇺🇮🇪
We tend to assume that our government would *never* consciously do anything to damage its own people... Trevelyan, however, took the psychopathic view that the famine was divine intervention on the feckless poor... ⬇️ 😖✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #history #famine #Ireland #capitalism
This was at a time when - even during the years of famine - Ireland was exporting around 300,000 tons of grain to England per annum. Fully *one million* Irish people are believed to have died due to the famine, and around two million emigrated. 😠✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #resist #ToriesOut

- Thread sobre as aranhas-pavão

Vamos falar um pouquinho das aranhas-pavão, as papa-moscas australianas e inofensivas dos gêneros Maratus e Saratus, que são muito interessantes e importantes para o conhecimento da biodiversidade.

Segue a #AracnoThread #FiqueEmCasa
Pra falar de aranhas-pavão não podemos deixar de citar o Dr. Jürgen Otto, que com auxílio do expert David Hill descreveu mais de 47 espécies dessas aranhas nos últimos 10 anos, todas da Austrália.
Hoje são 90 espécies de Maratus e 1 de Saratus, um número que sobe constantemente.
Elas ganharam muito destaque nessa década por conta do trabalho destes dois pesquisadores.
Conseguimos descobrir muito sobre o complexo comportamento de cortejo, distribuição e o mais importante para o monitoramento da biodiversidade, a descrição das espécies, antes que se vão.

Oppose measures that:
- Increase surveillance or monitoring of movements and communication
- limit free speech or the flow of information
Oppose measures that;
- unnecessarily restrict freedom of movement. governments should not use the threat of violence, fines, or imprisonment to enforce shelter-in-place orders. No checkpoints, no random stops

I'm at work. It's very slow so I think I am going to rewatch #TheShockDoctrine and live tweet it. Feel free to mute/zip the hashtag. But even better watch with me. It's available on YouTube.
A state of shock is what happens to us when we lose our narrative, when we become disoriented. What keeps us alert and out of shock in the midst of turmoil is knowing our history - NaomiAKlein #TheShockDoctrine
Because of time and space I won't be able to note every speaker while live tweeting. This will mostly be quotes and paraphrases. The words are not mine! #TheShockDoctrine #Disclaimer

1. This thread is for YOU. Consider reading if you want to EASILY understand why there is unprecedented, worldwide, mass confinement and quarantine going on around the world.
2. Since JFK's death in 1963 there has been a massive, hidden criminal conspiracy running our world.

Many world's leaders have been compromised to do the bidding of the ultra-rich and ruling class. We are ALL but mere pawns in their game of #Monopoly.
3. Consider using this free time you have to educate yourself on WHO the criminals we are fighting really are by watching this fascinating documentary that exposes their satanic plan to rule over us... #EverythingIsARichMansTrick!

Let's talk about @Walmart

It started out as a local business that promoted goods made in the USA. Their advertising promoted it and everyone felt good about buying from such a patriotic company that supported American made goods

Slowly, Walmart stopped buying American made goods. Their prices were phenomenal & small businesses began to close wherever a Walmart showed up. Small towns were decimated b/c they couldn't compete w/Walmart prices

Walmart paid low part-time wages w/few benefits & made trillions
Walmart is one of the riches companies in the world & benefited enormously from Trump's tax cuts for Billionaires. Like Amazon, they've destroyed small business across America while paying their employees peanuts

This Christmas, our Walmart had a food drive for their employees

You #resist and #votebluenomatter who folks seem to have some misconceptions about who we are and what we intend when we say #writeinbernie and #demexit2020.
"But what about Russia?"

No, you're a neo-McCarthyist who watched too much cable news and fell down the rabbit hole.

#writeinbernie #DemExit2020
"But what about kids in cages?"

Gitmo's still open, and we still render, torture, and drone strike people. Those million Iraqis aren't coming back from the dead. We see you not giving a shit about that.

There is never a time or place for government intervention into private lives and the curtailing of individual rights and freedoms.
There is no "public good" in abdication of parental responsibility and granting dominion of your child or yourself to the state. 1/
At no time should caring conscientious parents relinquish their children or rights to parent to the state.

Make no mistake the (((Howard)))'s of the world won't stop at just force vaccination. Their true aim is to have children delivered into the waiting arms of the state. 2/
Purposefully mischaracterizing the bond between parent/child, diminishing and reducing it to a fabricated simplistic postulate of "property" shows these people out as the social facists they are.
Underlying all this is their notion of statism rule: "the state knows better." 3/

Watching @TheDemocrats get all bent over #Russia interfering in our elections is amusing.
We’ve been doing it to each other for 100 years. Yeah... 😂
FYI @BillClinton moved heaven and earth to get Yeltsin elected in 1996. 😱 #TWGRP…
2 If #KnowledgeIsPower then let me Learn ya.
The US actually has a whole division of the #CIA dedicated to #ElectionMeddling.
This throws a little water on #Dems Fake outrage.
It’s called SAC or Special Activities center.
@SenSchumer knows this.…
3 If that wasn’t enough, within SAC we have SOG, the Special Operations Group.
(Who makes up these names?)
Guess what they do??
Tactical paramilitary operations.
YUP! 😉
They use brute Force if needed but also Arm and Train rebels.
The most secret #CIA Div.
Think #Syria 👍🏻

When people use the terms #Fascist or #Fascism today,
They are usually using it in a derogatory way to refer to a group or regime or even an individual that is overly aggressive, controlling or totalitarian, but do you even know what it means? 🤷‍♂️
2. The #Resist types like to say @realDonaldTrump is a #Fascist and so are the #MAGA’s...But is it true?
Looking at this meme I’ll say “they don’t know” 😂
Almost none of what’s mentioned is an attribute of fascism but if #Trump was a Fascist you’d be in prison. 😉 #Think
3 #Fascism definition:
it depends on who you ask.
both sources give two separate definitions of what Fascism is, and both get one thing wrong #racism is not an attribute of fascism.
Mussolini did not believe in a master Race, and didn’t agree with Hitler.

A taste of the fascism raining on the border. I have an EMS friend in Laredo who was called to a drowning on the Rio Grande. When their unit arrived, they found an 11 yo child wet & shivering, crying for her mother on the riverbank - who had just drowned. My friend covered...1/
...her with a blanket, took her inside their warm unit, gave her hot tea, & comforted her as well as he could. In about 10 minutes a border patrol unit drove up. BP went into the EMS unit and brusquely took the child, handcuffed and arrested her. All while the search was on...2/ retrieve the body of the child'sndrowned mother. My friend said he walked back into his unit and broke down in tears for what seemed like an hour. He told me he could not be comforted by his mates. "I have a daughter the same age" he said. 2/

The morning of Nov 9, 2016 was a gut-punch. We got up, dusted ourselves off and started to fight.
AG Bill Barr delivers another gut-punch in March of 2019, spinning and twisting the Mueller Report beyond all recognition, and shutting down the investigation. Again, we picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off and continued to fight.
Despite the conclusion we all fully expected, listening to the excruciatingly drawn-out spectacle of the GOP’s treasonous conduct throughout the 2019/20 impeachment process was yet another gut-punch.

Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He

3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

Mr. President I watched the Impeachment process, it was no hoax, it was the truth. What are doing is making threats and bullying but that is what do and it is not leadership. @threadreaderapp UNROLL @AnastasiaYeager @QueenBeeCanadas @SenateDems @SenateGOP #Resist
Republican in the House lied and covered for you thus breaking their Oaths of Office. The Senate Republicans as whole proved to be cowards and sold their souls to the likes of you. @threadreaderapp UNROLL @AnastasiaYeager @QueenBeeCanadas @SenateDems @SenateGOP #Resist
Thus they broke 2 oaths for which they can be charged. You are guilty of Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress.and much more.

For your wall you took money you were entitled to take.

To determine who has the power with respect to a social phenomenon, ask who gets to talk about it, and who gets talked about.

When it comes to people leaving the church, Christian leaders get to talk about it.

Leavers get talked about.

That needs to change.

If you want to change the power dynamics here, what can you do?

Elevate the voices of leavers yourself, and demand that leavers be represented in journalism and commentary.

Here's a piece that helps make the case:…

#SundayMotivation #EmptyThePews
I've said nothing scares right-wing Christians more than declining church attendance and loss of the youth, but that's not quite right.

Nothing scares them more than us defectors getting a hearing for our own stories:

It’s seriously time to start thinking about how to make this happen here. We need to be ready to #Resist for real
#BernieOrVest is the only effective counter strategy to #BlueNoMatterWho and if the campaign can’t admit it we need to lead the way and push them!

The problem is #CapitalismVsDemocracy and #BernieOrVest is about protecting and expanding democracy.

This is all connected

yet another hit piece against a certain candidate.
"In a rant on MSNBC that went viral on Tuesday evening, the longtime Democratic strategist vented his concerns about the party’s prospects for beating Donald Trump, taking particular aim at the party’s leftward lurch."
"We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells.
It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party."
"For fuck’s sake, we’ve got Trump at Davos talking about cutting Medicare and no one in

@brycetache via @mashagessen: "I have lived in autocracies most of my life, and have spent much of my career writing about Vladimir Putin’s Russia. I have learned a few rules for surviving in an autocracy and salvaging your sanity and self-respect. It might be worth considering them now:"
@brycetache @mashagessen via @mashagessen "Rule #1: Believe the autocrat. He means what he says. Whenever you find yourself thinking, or hear others claiming, that he is exaggerating, that is our innate tendency to reach for a rationalization...."
@brycetache @mashagessen via @mashagessen Rule #2: "Do not be taken in by small signs of normality... Confronted with political volatility, the markets become suckers for calming rhetoric from authority figures. So do people. Panic can be neutralized by falsely reassuring words...."

1/ So it has been 9 years now I am tinkering with Android, and close to a year working at @Zomato - an app with 100M+ downloads and close to 5M active users on most days. Here is a 🧵 thread 👇🏼
@Zomato 2/ There have been multiple learnings, re-learnings, obliteration of firmly-held-on practices over the years. The differences between working on 6 month old codebases and 9 year old ones, and between 1-screen apps to 50-screen ones.
@Zomato 3/

First of all, the concept of "at scale" on frontend is always very different from backend. You are not spinning up AWS instances here as the traffic hits. But scale matters here. Especially when you need to support 500+ different devices from 50+ OEMs.

What’s disturbing is that he’s living 2 lives; by day a ‘Congressman’ and a ‘family man’ & by night, drug induced party time in West Hollywood.  Officially, Schiff is under investigation…

Wait there's more!
Embattled Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff is now the target of a federal investigation focused on the Congressman’s more-than-frequent trips to Ed Buck’s ‘drug house,’ according to a Clinton Whistleblower and insider.  Buck is a high-profile, millionaire Democratic
benefactor who has contributed and bundled large amounts of cash to Democrats including
Hillary Clinton
Barack Obama
Kamala Harris

Buck was arrested after a nearly-dead man escaped from Buck’s home after Buck allegedly plied him with meth.

When pundits were treating Trump like a joke and saying our nation would easily survive his presidency, @sarahkendzior, @AndreaChalupa, and I were sounding alarm bells and risking our reputations to forecast—correctly— what was coming.

We now all support Warren for president.
There is a reason @sarahkendzior, @AndreaChalupa, and I all support Elizabeth Warren, and it goes beyond individual policies and to the unique challenges of this moment:

The next POTUS must have an understanding of the nexus between corruption and EVERY OTHER POLITICAL ISSUE.

Your process is already rigged, bias, and intended to let the off the hook for his actions. Doing thing in the dark of night is what criminals do, not what the righteous do. @threadreaderapp UNROLL @AnastasiaYeager @QueenBeeCanadas #Senate #WeThePeople #ForThePeople #Resist
