RECAP: 1/ Today's hearing was about Discovery, or rather, lack thereof. It's been 9 months.

Q: Documents that the GOV relied on when deciding to implement mask mandates for kids in schools.

A. State remains steadfast in their refusal to provide, claiming something called..
State claims "deliberative process privilege" which appears to be a fake reason to deny document requests. It basically means that whatever @GovDanMcKee looked at or read before he started issuing Executive Orders is secret. Not public. Not Discoverable. #parents atty argued...
"We know the documents exist, but the State of #RhodeIsland won't give them up." @gpp475 Interestingly, State is NOT asserting atty/client privilege, just that McKee shouldn't have to explain or answer about who advised him or what they gave him for proof that masking kids...

Voters in Florida, New York and Oklahoma headed to the polls on Aug. 23 for their primaries as the transition nationwide to the November 8 general election draws closer.

Here are 5 key takeaways from the Aug. 23 primaries (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/five-takeaways…

Nadler and Maloney were forced to run against each other after a court-mandated redistricting process.

1/ 🚨📢🎯 #RhodeIsland #parents Here is the latest on Southwell v McKee!

TLDR: Parents were told they could only depose Dr. McDonald from @RIHEALTH remotely, now tries to suppress plaintiffs from publishing the video.

Here's how it went down:
2/ State agreed to make Dr McDonald available by video for deposition weeks ago. Deposition scheduled for 7/7...and just hours before it was to begin- the State filed for a Protective Order to prevent parents from publishing any portion of the video...
3/ Why would State seek to prevent the public from hearing from Dr. McDonald? Was it because they knew it would be embarrassing - before it even happened? Well, @GovDanMcKee was responsible for the appointment, so....is the Gov up to the task of choosing Directors wisely? Or...

#CoronaVirusUpdates #RhodeIsland

Have a look at the recent surge in #Hospitalizations among children (< 18 years old age group; colored yellow)

BA.2 is the most dominant circulating lineage in #RhodeIsland
My hospital tracking tool didn't pick it up (data from HHS). Got to investigate this further.. that surge from @nytimes data chart looks unreal

Down here at the #RhodeIsland State House getting ready to testify for 100% #renewableenergy by 2030 on our grid. #energytransition
Update: I really feel for legislators who have to host all of these committee meetings halfway through the night for what? $13K per year? How do they do it?
Right now @RepDebRuggiero is presenting her compost bill, H7542. This is more important than you may think; organic waste is a significant source of methane (CH4), which is ~100x as potent a GHG as CO2 over the 1st 10 years. /3

CALL TO ACTION ❗❗❗

➡️ MUST SIGN UP BY 4PM TODAY!

Tomorrow, there will be 4 HEARINGS in regards to the abuse of Governor Dan McKee's emergency powers - 2 of them are GOOD & 2 of them are BAD 💔

#RhodeIslandFreedomFighters
#RhodeIsland #Providence #StopTheStateOfEmergency
The HOUSE will be hosting IN-PERSON testimony with an additional option to testify over the phone, but the SENATE is still too afraid to meet in person, so that hearing will ONLY be done over the phone.
We need AS MANY PEOPLE to show up to testify, or sign up to virtually testify for these hearings as possible... You can submit written testimony as well!!!

➡️ SUPPORT - H7217 & H7218
➡️ OPPOSE - H7256 & S2154

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

As we approach the end of 2021, we want to look back at all we've accomplished this year:
We ended #ChildMarriage in not one but TWO states this year! Both #RhodeIsland and #NewYork signed laws making the marriage age #18NoExceptions!
We took our first in-person trip in over a year to stand alongside #RI @GovDanMcKee as he signed #H5387/ #S398 and made #RhodeIsland the fifth U.S. state to ban all marriage before 18, without exceptions! @JulieCasimiroRI
We also hosted a #ChainIn Celebration in #NYC after #NewYork became the 6th U.S. state to #EndChildMarriage after 6 long years of our tireless advocacy! That definitely deserved a celebration! @SalazarSenate @PhilRamos6AD #YearInReview #EndChildMarriageUSA #6Down44ToGo

57 y.o. fully vaccinated Gerald Habershaw, principal of Pilgrim High School in Warwick #RhodeIsland passed away from COVID on November 27, 2021. "He was an amazing human being & amazing teacher" said colleagues #SoulsLostToCovid providencejournal.com/story/news/loc… Image
"At least 45 people who attended a Nov. 6 homecoming dance at Pilgrim High School have tested positive for COVID-19. And the event may have contributed to the death of school principal Gerald Habershaw, says his brother."
Habershaw served as principal of Warwick Veterans Memorial High School from 2005 to 2016, then moved to Pilgrim High School when the city's high schools were consolidated.

Yes, we are still in the middle of a global pandemic, #COVID19, but let’s not forget about the #opioid epidemic, a public health issue we have been dealing with a while... What can we do about it?? #ph260720 #opioidepidemic Image
In 2017 (more than 4 years ago), @HHSGov declared the #opioidepidemic as a public health emergency. An “emergency” situation that we have not been able to control yet... #publichealthemergency #ph260720
hhs.gov/opioids/about-…
According to @CDCgov and @NIDAnews, more than 70,000 Americans die every year due to opioid overdose. That is 70,000 lives (read in bold!) lost every year, the majority of which is preventable. #opioidepidemic #opioidskill #opioidoverdose #ph260720 Image

Psuedo “expert” Dr Jha of #RhodeIsland ‘s own Brown U expounds on masking. Whoops. But objective truth and data don’t matter in the post modern field of “Public Health”.
Yet the good “Dr” can charge big bucks to advise “business leaders” and “policy makers” on pandemic strategies. Perhaps he should see a therapist first? First “Tool”: Hide under your damn bed!

Remember that #RhodeIsland BOE meeting where the Council on Elem & Sec Ed directed @AInfanteGreen and @RIDeptEd to reject any school reopening plan that did not include a mask mandate? Here is the infamous letter generating the OMA violating letter. A 🧵.
2/ Notice this letter is to the GOV, and lists not one, but TWO teacher unions as signatories. Guess what else? Two of the signatories are actually on the the BOE: Colleen Callahan (RITFHP) and Larry Purtill (NEARI). That's not all...
3/ So, we have two members of BOE in their role of teacher union execs attempting to influence masking policy on the same BOE they serve on. Disgusting. Appalling. #corruption #RhodeIsland #UNMASKOURCHILDREN

Clear that @NEAToday RI Chapter seeks to circumvent...

The Concord project opted to go with Solar (PV) connected to an energy storage system (battery storage) in lieu of a backup generator.

This system has been designed to keep the critical loads for the home operational even if the utility power is knocked out.
This includes the backup heating and domestic hot water system (gas boiler with radiant floor heat + indirect hot water tank), the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, TV/WiFi, lighting and receptacles in strategic areas.
The Generac PwrCell provides 18 kWh of battery storage in a single cabinet, and up to 9 kW of continuous power output, enough to power the critical loads for extended periods of time. It can also be expanded to 36 kWh of battery storage in the future should it ever be needed.

@AInfanteGreen I found your written position on @repmorgan bill H6070, which would have prevented you from bringing #CriticalRaceTheory to all #RhodeIsland schools. Nice try attempting to bury it, though.

Tell us again how RIDE "doesn't have a #CRT policy."

@LGillheeney
2/ Here is a link to @RIDeptEd official position on #CriticalRaceTheory in #RhodeIsland - straight from the RI Legislature website. Hint: They sure were against banning #CRT, but that's not all the gems I found...

2/ I found startlingly similar language on the Teach for America (TFA) website and the #RhodeIsland LEAP report. That wasn't all. The TFA website is littered with #CriticalRaceTheory tenets, filled with praise for their own work on racial equity initiatives, and more...
3/ There are 3 members of the #RhodeIsland LEAP Task force with deep connections to Teach for America and their #CriticalRaceTheory agenda. That's not all that Jeremy Chiapetta, BVP, and Teach for America have in common....

1/OK #RhodeIsland, let me introduce some background on one of the members chosen for the LEAP Task Force, Juanita Montes de Oca. Remember this task force appears devoted to bringing #CriticalRaceTheory to all RI schools, by hook or by crook. Guess what Generation Citizen... Image
2/ stands for? Culture change and System Change, to the tune of educating our students about their oppression and privilege. As @repmorgan can attest, this is how we wind up with students being bribed with test credit to become social justice warriors. But wait! There's more! Image
3/ Remember that story from a few weeks ago from the Daily Wire? The one that had all the teachers who signed a pledge to break the law if necessary, in order to continue on with their CRT self? Guess whose name is on it?

2/First up: Listen to @AInfanteGreen's interview with @IanDon -- Fast forward in the link to about 11:40 and you will hear her LIE on 7/9/2021:
"...I know that here in RI we do not have a CRT policy, that's not what is being taught in the schools...."
soundcloud.com/user-911967060…
3/EXCEPT: We DO have a CRT policy here in RI, and not only that, it's being supported by @GovDanMcKee, by RIDE, and also by @SANDRISCANO (Chair - Senate Education Committee) and Joseph McNamara @RIDemChair - (Chair -- House of Rep Education Committee.) SITTING LEGISLATORS.

This has to be one of most effective analytic takedowns of another side's argument.

Jeh Johnson wrote a deeply flawed piece opposing @SenGillibrand @SenJoniErnst's legislation on #SexualAssault in military.

This by @rachelv12 is a master class.👇

justsecurity.org/77025/professi…
2. One example

Johnson rhetorically claims: "A military commander must have legal authority over those in a unit...The two must be inseparable."

VanLandingham with the facts: "Demonstrably false given the thousands of U.S. military commanders" without any such legal authority.
3. "Mr. Johnson...warns that Congress shouldn’t fix what isn’t broken, and should leave everything but sexual assault crimes alone.

Fact: Court-martialing Black service members at a rate twice that of their white counterparts is a broken system in need of repair. Period."
