Dans la nuit, séisme politico-judiciaire aux Etats-Unis avec la mort de Ruth Bader Ginsburg (#RBG) juge à la Cour suprême depuis 1993.
Avant quelques réflexions sur les conséquences de ce décès, il convient de rappeler qui elle était.
Née en 1933 à Brooklyn dans une famille d’immigrés juifs de Russie, #RBG fit de brillantes études d’abord à l’université Cornell, puis à la fac de droit de Harvard (où elle est une des rares femmes de sa promotion) et à celle de Columbia 2/
En 1956, à Harvard, reçu à dîner par le doyen de la fac de droit avec ses condisciples féminines, leur hôte lui demande pourquoi elle prend la place d’un homme ?!
#RBG est une des étudiantes les plus brillantes dont le talent et le sérieux mettent à mal les clichés misogynes 3/

On July 1, Senators Kirsten #Gillibrand, Senator Chuck #Grassley & Senator Ted #Cruz announced they will offer the bipartisan #Military Justice Improvement Act as an amendment to this year’s National #Defense Authorization Act. gillibrand.senate.gov/news/press/rel… #NDAA #MJIA #PassMJIA
From Senator Gillibrand's press release: "The Military #Justice Improvement Act would professionalize how the #military prosecutes serious crimes by moving the decision over whether to prosecute them to independent, trained, professional military prosecutors." #MJIA #PassMJIA
"Despite years of Congressional reforms, thousands of service members are raped & sexually assaulted every year. In many of those cases, the assailant is someone in the survivor’s own chain of command." -- #military #MST #MilitarySexualTrauma #MJIA #PassMJIA

Conseil faussement désintéressé de D.#Trump: E.#Warren est la candidate démocrate #veep qu'il pourrait le plus facilement "étiqueter"pour galvaniser son électorat conservateur- la controverse sur les fausses origines indiennes, libérale de gauche du Massachusetts...

#LastRT 1 facteur à prendre en compte dans le choix de #Biden pour sa #veep: quand lui-même est choisi par #Obama en 2008, il sort certes d'1 primaire aux résultats catastrophiques MAIS où il avait brillé dans les débats, avec plusieurs saillies mémorables.
3) Désolé d'employer ce terme- mais il est celui retenu- #Obama, quand il choisit #Biden comme #veep, le fait d'abord pour cette qualité d'#attackdog (chien d'attaque) fondamentale historiquement pour 1 colistier/colistière. Et de ce point de vue, #Warren n'a jamais brillé.

WTF! There's a 20 minute raw cut montage of Joe Biden groping Senators children. Who has 20 minute videos on YouTube rubbing children?! This is a serious problem for the democrats. #CreepyJoeBiden
I really don't see how this guy will survive this election. I expect the Democrats to swap him out or him say Doctors he's coming down with an age related illness and then the deep state can pick any person they want with no primary or election. They play one dirty f’ing game...
#Dems should of nominated somebody not tied to the swamp if they wanted to get rid of #Trump so bad. This is why #Buttigieg & #Klobachar dropped & nominated #Biden while #Warren stayed in to split #Bernies votes. They worked together so Bernie wouldn't win. Corrupt to its core.

DIFFICULT THREAD -- #BIDEN SHOULD WITHDRAW

1. I respect the will of the voters.

2. But new information has emerged supporting #TaraReade's account of being sexually assaulted by #JoeBiden.

3. Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.
4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL.

5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw.

6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden.

7. #Bernie can restart his campaign.

8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.
9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump.

10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace "the lesser of two accused rapists."

11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win.

PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

La passe de trois pour #JoeBiden qui recevra ce matin le soutien officiel d'Elizabeth Warren après Sanders avant-hier et Obama hier. Grosse démonstration d'unité démocrate face à #Trump.
RT+
2) Evidemment, pour #Warren, le soutien à #Biden a un enjeu direct plus fort que pour les précédents puisque le candidat vice-président démocrate sera une femme. Et elle est d'évidence sur les rangs, puisque Biden lui en avait déjà parlé en 2015... politico.com/story/2016/05/…
3) Sauf qu'on n'est plus en 2015-2016, lorsque #Biden proposa à #Warren d'être sa colistière s'il se présentait. Qu'apporte #Warren à #Biden sur 1 ticket? Elle a fini 3e dans l'Etat qu'elle représente au Sénat qui est acquis aux démocrates et n'a pas gagné un Etat en primaire…

Analysis: Why #Sanders lost the nomination: "Simple explanation" is that he got "trounced" when the race narrowed to 2; "many of Biden’s wins were blowouts, ballooning his pledged delegate lead to 311, a margin that is essentially insurmountable." | thread fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-b…
.@perrybaconjr "Why did Sanders do so badly in a 1-on-1 contest against Biden? I’d offer 3 explanations, none of which are mutually exclusive from the other 2."

1>"Sanders didn’t run a smart enough campaign."
#Bernie's campaign "seemed to think that #Sanders had a unique appeal to white working-class voters that would simply continue in 20," despite "clear indications" that some of his success in '16 w/ whites w/o college was more anti-HRC than pro-Sanders.

✔️#Biden is not a "moderate" #dem. He's running on a platform to the left of Obama & Hillary. If elected, he'd be the most #progressive president in our lifetimes.

This thread fact-checks a graphic circulated by #Sanders supporters that equates Biden & Trump.
✔️#Biden supports universal healthcare. He proposes adding a singlepayer Medicare option to the #ACA, open to individuals & employers. It could be immediately implemented, unlike #MedicareForAll which has a 4-yr transition.

✔️#Sanders introduced #M4A. It has 15 Senate votes.
✔️#Biden's plan to add singlepayer Medicare option to ACA follows the public/private hybrid that's most commonly used by countries with universal healthcare.

✔️Trump admin has filed suit to overturn the ACA & protections for people w/ preexisting conditions.

In EVERY state, #Sanders has done less well in 2020 than he did in 2016, underperforming by an average 17.6%.

In Vermont, for example, he won only 50.7% of the vote in '20, a drop of 35.4% from his '16 win. / thread
#Sanders' underperformance is partly explained by his failure to get new & young voters to the polls. In nearly every primary thru early March, fewer of those voters turned out than they did in '16.

.@CNN exit polls show nearly 3% fewer voters under 30 voted in '20 than they did in '16. #Bernie Sanders needed to overperform with this demographic.

Email to #Bernie shows campaign's pollster predicted he was within 4 points of #Biden in South Carolina. 2 days later, Biden blew out SC by nearly 30 points, turning the race around.

How Sanders' run came undone: thread int.nyt.com/data/documenth…
In Jan, @ZephyrTeachout, a law prof allied w/ #Sanders, wrote an op-ed alleging #Biden had “a big corruption problem," & the campaign sent it to everyone on its large email list.

✔️ #Sanders "put a stop to it. 'It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way.'"
In Feb, VT Rep @PeterWelch implored #Sanders to "ease up" on his attacks of #democrats. Welch believed it "sounded exclusionary to ordinary people backing other candidates, ... a lot of voters who are just everyday voters, who decided to vote for other #Dems" (NYT 3/21).

u are so sexist u refused to nominate a woman #warren AGAIN. u are so racist u forced the ONE person #harris that scared him into dropping out. u rather protect businesses instead of people. u are now betting on a walking, talking, forgetful disaster #biden against a REAL monster

Considering whether #Warren should endorse, I go to my favorite question for students: what would we need to know?

What would we need to know to understand whether Warren's endorsing someone would advance the goal of securing universal health care and paid leave?
2/
We would need to know if it would move any voters. Her supporters were evenly split, but we need to know if some were never Bernie/ never Biden. We could find that out; it would be harder to find out whether her supporters are likely to be moved by endorsements (I'm not).
3/
Next we need to know if Warren has a better shot at advancing her agenda w/o endorsing now. There are 3 ways this could happen.
-Biden wins plurality. Endorsement= platform bargaining chip;
-Biden better against Trump; or
-Warren endorsement hurts Bernie, somehow.

Massachusetts law allows the Governor to appoint a replacement if a Senator leaves office prior to completing a term. The Governor, Charlie Baker, is a Republican, and is not up for re-election until 2022.

1/
Therefore, if Warren were to become the VP nominee and win, upon her resignation that Senate seat would go from blue to red.

Vermont has the same deal, also with a Republican Governor. Though he's up for re-election in 2020.

2/
A Sanders/Warren ticket would automatically cost two Senate seats. While a Biden/literally-anyone-who's-not-a-red-state-Gov appointed-replacement ticket would keep both of those seats blue.

1. Long thread. Content warning: rape, suicide, torture.

YOU BETRAYED #WARREN, YOU BETRAYED ME, YOU BETRAYED ALL OF US

Highly educated colleagues who supported Sanders instead of Warren: you betrayed me.

@ewarren
2. The evidence that Sanders attracted and energized fake-left and pseudo-left segments, such as Trotskysts, marginal opportunists who blabber old Trostkyst mottos like "social democrats (or liberals, in the US) are the same as fascists" should be enough.
3. You have obtained the same Ph.D. as me. You should have known.

However, you have not been a clandestine militant on the hard left since 15 yrs old like me (1977-78). You have not been pinned down as you yelled "NO" while a "comrade" fucked you over and over again.

What is disinformation and why does it matter?

The #CoronavirusOutbreak (aka #COVID19) certainly has everyone’s attention at this moment!

Sadly it is the perfect to slip some disinfo onto the narrative and manipulate public opinion one way or another..
Let’s look at this meme: It links the COVID-19 to an immigration issue!

But they are NOT related.

This virus came into the US via travelers (mostly caucasians) who had been exposed.

🌈Viruses are blind to a persons skin color.

🌈Viruses are not stopped by a border wall.
Disinformation can also come from a fellow resister who failed to verify the source!

The tweet below echoes headlines from an Australian article. But if you read that article you realize it is reporting on info that showed up in a communist source...

Media & social media have been a total love requiem for Liz Warren all day, and it’s such gross hypocrisy.
I never liked Warren.
She had many fine qualities as a candidate, but she lied constantly; often about trivial things. It made her liability in the general election.
But 1/
But watching the media canonize her tonight, as though it was some unexpected tragedy that she ended her campaign the day after everyone demanded she and her campaign, kind of reminds me of the way they wouldn’t mention Kamala Harris, and then as soon as she left the race 2/
Everyone was shocked! And there was so much looking askance and “her voice will be missed.”
Really?
I remember thinking “you guys are gonna miss her voice? Did you ever even hear it? Because you didn’t cover it.”
And I’m reminded people told me they might hold her nose & vote 3/

Nevertheless, she persisted. ✊🏻
I didn’t love Hillary. She was flawed. But I so badly wanted to see a woman in the White House. I was devastated in 2016... because Hillary didn’t pick #Warren as her running mate. I truly thought that would have locked it all up.
I can’t explain why I loved #Warren back in #2016, but I just felt she was THE ONE.

When she announced her candidacy for 2020 I was overwhelmed with excitement.

She was going to do it! She would be THE ONE!

Joe #Biden ha vinto il #SuperTuesday, l'appuntamento più importante delle primarie Dem #USA. L'ex vicepresidente di Barack Obama ha vinto in almeno 9 dei 14 stati in cui si andava al voto (potrebbero diventare 10 con il Maine, dove al momento è in lieve vantaggio).
🇺🇸 Anche se lo scrutinio non è ancora concluso al 100%, possiamo infatti dare per certa la vittoria di #Biden in Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas e Virginia.
🇺🇸 Bernie #Sanders ha invece vinto in California, Colorado, Utah e Vermont. Infine, il miliardario Michael #Bloomberg - entrato in gioco solo nel #SuperTuesday - ha trionfato solo nei caucus che si sono tenuti nelle Samoa Americane.

If #Warren gets essentially shut out today, we need some serious talks and action to combat our country's internalized misogyny. (Even if she doesn't get shut out, we need to have that conversation and action.)
Has her campaign been flawless? No. Are there very good reasons for voters to prefer other candidates? Of course. Would a male candidate with the same profile have fared better in this race? Absolutely.
This is a good place to start: nybooks.com/articles/2020/…

And this: fivethirtyeight.com/audio-features…

I was fascinated by the observation that even when Warren talks about her parents, she's much tougher on her mom than her dad. So many of us hold women in our lives to higher standards!

Q: “What is your advice to girls facing sexism in high school and college?”

A: “Persist... no matter how many times you’re told to sit down and be quiet... stand up and no matter what comes your way, promise me you will persist.”

#Warren in Seattle
Q: About hate against immigrants

A: “Immigrants don’t make this country weaker, it makes us stronger.”

Points out how Trump stokes hate and pits people against each other as a distraction against his own corruption.
“I will lead by example... I will have an administration that looks like the rest of America.”

She mentions those left behind, whose voices she will listen to.

“I WILL BE A PRESIDENT WHO WILL BE A PART OF THE HEART OF EVERY HUMAN BEING.”

@darylsturgis @therealzanetta 1/ #Warren is the smartest, the toughest, and the most likely to beat Trump. She is the world’s leading expert on medical bankruptcy so she understands both the economy and the health care system. Watch her in hearings; she can eviscerate Trump.
@darylsturgis @therealzanetta 2/ She understands people. She knows what its like to almost lose a parent and to almost lose a house. She understands what it’s like for a woman to hear a man say “she just misunderstood my joke.” She’s been a single mom and a champion debater.
@darylsturgis @therealzanetta 3/ She dropped out of school to get married, as so many women did, and she came back to become a great professor and Senator. Her life is her resume—and while there are a few books about her life, she has also written a dozen that weren’t about her at all.
