Let’s revisit the Lincoln lies

A ) we are One People

B) Thomas Jefferson was meant to be interpreted literally at the Founding when he said “all men are created equal”

- TJ was meant to be interpreted literally AT THE FOUNDING when he said “all men are created equal”

The key here is “AT THE FOUNDING”

AL and the North were just as racist as the South... AL did not believe this and did not fight for this..

He made this up as the war went

Context on why Centre finally heeds #SupremeCourt (after being questioned over its irrational policy) & the Opposition on centralised procurement of the vaccines: No. of people with 2 doses as a % of population is just 3.3% (See live tracker in thehindu.com) (1/n)
The supply from the Centre to the States was around 24.6 crores and the utilisation was around 23.11 crores (including wastage) which is roughly 93.94% of supply. Essentially States used nearly all of the Centre's supply (2/n)
Several #States raised global tenders to get procure vaccines from abroad. So far (IIRC), not a single vaccine manufacturer abroad has agreed to sell to #States. (3/n)

2) I am very proud of and grateful that my book on #TPNW has received such great endorsements from
Mohamed @ElBaradei, Angela Kane @kaneview, Desmond Browne, @JodyWilliams97, Ramesh Thakur, Bill @PotterCNS and @DarylGKimball
The book presents the history of the #HumanitarianInitiative & the process leading to #TPNW from 2010-17.
Having been centrally involved in this process, it is a first-hand account of how the extraordinary cooperation of #states & #civilsociety made the #TPNW happen @nuclearban

The daily new cases count is still above 4 lakhs, at 401,343 yesterday 7 May.
Meanwhile, the vaccination drive sputters on fitfully. It seems to bear an inverse relationship to the spread of the virus.
The Ministry of Health, @MoHFW, seems more concerned with defending the Govt agaibnst criticism. Every day it boasts about how many doses of vaccine it has given to the states "free of cost" See this from today's Press Release.

A government that rushes to take credit for every small thing is today desperately trying to shift blame for its mismanagement to states. This while it has retained control on #vaccines & #oxygen. Not that states have zero responsibility, but this is largely the Centre's doing.
Troll factories are pushing the narrative that #PrimeMinister #NarendraModi can't be blamed while he was busy holding super spreader election rallies when he should have taken charge of the situation. So expect an all out attack from the IT Cell. Accountability anyone? #2ndWave
#States too should have been better prepared. But with #vaccinationpolicy and #oxygenallocation out of their control, they could do little except prepare for the worst with whatever resources they had at their disposal. Some states did take steps and thank god for that. #Pandemic

#Centre says we allocated oxygen plants to states but #states did nothing.

Here is the #truth.

Order clearly states that the procurement will be done by the Central Medical Supply Store, an autonomous body under the MOFH.

We need to see if CMSS actually procured these units.
Order also states that hospitals where these plants were to be installed were identified in consultation with state governments and union territories. It’s clear that the states have a go ahead. So what happened after that? Were allocated funds disbursed? Did procurement happen?
Who delayed procurement, construction and installation of #oxygen plants? At what level did the delay take place. It’s says locations were identified in consultation with states. What happened after that is key. If the #Centre or a #CentralBody was in charge, who delayed it?

Sir, with ref to your very much needed sensitive response, in ordinariness of #ordinarypeople & with commonsense of
#commonman, may we submit as follows:
1.Instead of experimenting with #3FarmActs for 1-2 yrs, why not keep those in abeyance for 2yrs?
2. Ask #40AssnsofFarmers>>
>> to submit their #ProposedDraft keeping following in view:
a. #Reforms inter-alia shifting from existing agriculture pattern in #Punjab #Haryana etc to...
b."Cost + theory" & feasibility of #MSP for all crops
c. Is uniform #FarmActs possible for all #States
3.Likewise #GOI >>
>>needs to appreciate that instead of "experimenting" for
1-2 yrs which if results in #irreversible & #irrevocable DAMAGES will be creating more
#TrustDeficit, it will be better to keeping #3FarmActs in #Abeyance to hv #LevelPlayingField to make needful decisions cordially!>>

How #American #Elections Work: A Thread👇

The #TrumpCampaign and its allies have filed #lawsuits to try to block some key states from certifying #Election2020results results that show #Democrat @JoeBiden defeating President @realDonaldTrump.
After #ElectionNight , certifying the #results is a step #states take so that winners can be officially #confirmed. The @AP and other #media outlets on Saturday declared @JoeBiden the #WINNER of the #PresidentialElection2020
after analyses concluded that @RealdonqldTrump couldn’t gain enough votes from remaining ballots to surpass @JoeBiden.

@d9monti @shannonrwatts I think #Democrats are misunderstanding (and underestimating) the #GOP/#Trump play here.

They are *NOT* trying to win these frivolous lawsuits!

What they *ARE* trying to do is:

1. Delay #vote certifications; and/or,
2. Keep multiple lawsuits alive in various #states.

/1
@d9monti @shannonrwatts Thus allowing #GOP controlled legislatures to declare that b/c the #election results are disputed (see: lawsuits) they have no option but to "reluctantly" exercise their #Constitutional duty under Article II Section 1 Clauses 2 thereof & appoint their own #electors!

#Coup

/2
@d9monti @shannonrwatts State legislatures #GOP controls:

1. #Arizona (11 Electoral Votes)
2. #Georgia (16 Electoral Votes)
3. #Wisconsin (10 Electoral Votes)
4. #Michigan (16 Electoral Votes)
5. #Pennsylvania (20 Electoral Votes)

= 73 Electoral Votes #GOP legislatures will try to flip to #Trump.

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇

In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

Fiscal marksmanship is a problem that plagues the #budgeting process at all level of government, from #Centre to #state governments. Attention is however still focused on the #Centre, despite #states now accounting for one and a half times the spending of the #Centre. (1/n)
This @IDFCinstitute working paper on fiscal marksmanship by @SharmadhaS and @PrakharMisra analyses the revenue #budgets of 28 #states of 15 years to analyse why state #budget estimates often miss the actuals on the various components of their total revenues. (2/n)
Fiscal marksmanship is a structural issue cutting across all #states, whether rich or poor. A rich state like #Kerala overestimated its total revenue in all 15 years but so did #Assam in 14 out of 15 years by an average of a massive 18.18%. (3/n) Image

In developed #countries, #government policies to restrict private behavior in response to #COVID-19 have had no effect in reducing #deaths at all. Excess all-cause mortality is actually associated, though insignificantly, with increasing restrictiveness.
In developed #countries, #deaths caused by #COVID-19 have had no — zero – correlation with #government policies of increasing restrictiveness such as #lockdowns.
Given the statistical #evidence, it is reasonable to infer, in the absence of contrary statistical evidence, that increasing restrictiveness does not decrease mortality. Any assumption or assertion that it does is not following the #science – and #ScienceMatters.

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
