1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged).…

A comprehensive US-#China thread.

Following @realDonaldTrump's first SOTU, I watched @staceyabrams open up @TheDemocrats' response with, "Happy Lunar New Year."

Struck, I thought "why the hell did she greet China on our world stage?"

1996 - @BillClinton's own national security team said his decision not to prosecute a high-level @DNC donnor who sold US missle tech to #China was a major mistake. Clinton then rewarded this donnor by approving his company's sale of satellites to China.…

Hi everyone. Trying to stay quiet and mindful during these times - so not posting here often. But here's a quick thread for my #academictwitter colleagues and those working in #postsecondary #university #college settings now. /1
Some of us in teaching positions are in the position of deciding whether to "stay the course", provide a sense of "normalcy", etc. when it comes to our coursework and obligations to students.

So a few words for those not sure what business as usual might entail. /2
I'll preface this with an acknowledgement that I'm 1) a tenure-track prof w/ 2) considerable autonomy in an academic program 3) w/leadership that respects the work I do in the classroom. I realize this isn't typical, so what I'm sharing might not reflect your situation. FWIW: /3

Soy mexicana, me llamo Verónica y sí contraigo #COVIDー19, hay probabilidades de que no sobreviva, por mi estado de salud, yo quiero vivir, pero el @GobiernoMX no ha decretado #EstadoDeEmergencia, tampoco invierte en test para el #coronavirus, y muchos menos apoya económicamente
a las personas para que se queden en aislamiento, por eso pido a la comunidad internacional que voltee a México y presione a López Obrador para que tome acciones... y yo y otros millones de personas en situación de riesgo, tengamos oportunidad de vivir.
Namaste 🙏🏻

Cada vida importa, y a López no le importa ninguna.

The #FakeNewsMedia is reporting that @realDonaldTrump doj
is trying to pass law for indefinite detention.

The facts are much different.
@BarackObama already passed the NDAA Bill that can arrested American citizens indefinitely for crimes yet to be committed.
Indefinite Detention was first passed in George Bush's
#Patriot #ACT for those who support Al-Qaeda etc.

@BarackObama then passed the NDAA which expanded it to indefinite detention for American Citizens for "future crimes"

Obama NDAA
During a declared #StateOfEmergency like now with #coronavirus
The bill is asking that local courts be able to temporarily suspend operations.
B) During a state of emergency the statue of limitations for crimes be suspended
C) It gives the Courts the authority not @POTUS

1/ Concerned about conversation with @dfat & I think is worthy of public info.

Late Sunday night #Peru declared State of Emergency. This was unexpected.

People cancelled flights to get money back.
For some this was unfortunate as some flights went ahead in 24 hr grace period.
2/ For most people, the worry is $$ so this was a hard decision.

I had tried to get out days ago but there was been no flights for days ahead anyway. I have one for 20/03 but it is unlikely to go ahead.

Reports are that there are army/police at airport & you can't get in ...
3/ ...without a boarding pass. Also reports of people on floors with nowhere to go. Working on verifying those.

Yesterday @dfat advised:
- embassy is closed
- get out however you can even if you walk
This was not a realistic suggestion.
Movement in the streets is very limited...

Tonight (of all nights), after a year of preparation, @playhousesquare @TheCityClub @CuyahogaLib & other partners are hosting me to discuss *Palaces* and our need for #SocialInfrastructure, for the #OneCommunityReads program. The timing is either disastrous or perfect. (Thread)
Palaces is about the vital role of public, accessible, well-designed gathering places in democratic societies. #Libraries #Parks #Schools #Playgrounds It argues that we have failed to build & maintain them, that we exacerbate problems, like distrust & division, as a result (2/6)
At first, the call for better #SocialInfrastructure seems at odds with our current emergency, #COVID19 Mitigating it requires #SocialDistancing. Quarantines. Maybe more. But getting through the #CoronavirusOutbreak demands we do more than hunker down at home. (3/6)

⚠️ BREAKING: #NewYork has declared a #StateofEmergency as #Coronavirus / #COVID19 cases soar to 76+... ⚠️

#SHTF moment... bugging out... laters
If just 10 people in NYC have #COVID19:

They can infect 10 more (100)
Those 100 can infect 10 more (1000)
Those 1000 can infect 10 more (10,000)
Those 10K can infect 10 more (100,000)
Those 100K can infect 10 more (1 Mil)

And that’s being conservative ...
There are around 16 million folks between Philly & NYC... they travel all over the US and the globe historically.

NYC was a worst case scenario... and now it’s here. Get ready folks... seriously.

“His defining characteristic has always been his willingness to do anything and sacrifice any principle to amass power for himself. What separates him from the garden-variety politicians — what makes him a radical — are the lengths he is willing to go.”…
Here is the #NationalEmergency I am most concerned about this #PresidentsDay! Did I say "concerned"? Too polite! We are in a civil war, this time the slavery is for all-colored, political, social and economic. And the 1% has allied itself with raving lunatics to save their pork.
But lest we forget, there is a silver lining...

Brothers / sisters, lovers / sinners, adult entertainers / sex workers and all who seek the American dream and all in #TheResistance

#NationalEmergency NOW ACTIVE

Donald Trump just a few moments ago has crossed the threshold of traitor and issued a fake National Emergency
For his stupid wall, it puts Millions innocent Americans at risk of losing Aid for things such as food stamps, and more! This Behavior crosses the threshold 2 dictatorship! This is clear evidence that he has for too long abused the powers
during the 2016 presidential elections, I warned the American people that Trump was not to be trusted, that Trump would cause great cataclysmic damage, and I am sorry to say that I was absolutely right! People ignored our plea to choose the right path and instead put a man who

What if a president, backed into a corner and facing electoral defeat or impeachment, were to declare an emergency for the sake of holding on to power?

If Trump declares a #StateOfEmergency - a tool used by autocrats throughout history to consolidate power - he will justify it by using contrived statistics.

This is textbook authoritarian and it will require education & support for institutional guardrails to defeat.
Institutional guardrails include Congress & Courts.

The 1976 National Emergencies Act provides some checks & balances on Trump's ability to declare an emergency.

House Democrats must hold hearings & court challenges must occur.

CC: @TeamPelosi @RepCummings @OversightDems
Unfortunately, the 1976 Act was later amended to require the President's signature or a 2/3rds veto override in both chambers.

Thus, should Trump ultimately declare a #StateOfEmergency tomorrow, it will be on @HouseDemocrats to hold hearings ASAP & expose his plan.

When are social, cultural, media, economic, & political leaders in this country going to WAKE UP to the fact that the "national emergency" "state of emergency", is a gambit by @realDonaldTrump & @GOP to shut down all investigations and suspend the constitution. | #TellThatTruth
