JUST IN — "Camp Auschwitz" insurrectionist of the Capitol siege was just arrested this morning in Newport News, VIrginia.
2) this guy was just arrested.
3) We cannot have a repeat of the fascism from WW2. This is @Schwarzenegger’s speech was so powerful.
4) My wife @andreafeigl1’s 🇦🇹 great grandfather secretly fought Hilter’s Nazi regime & smuggled many Jews to safety as an aircraft engineer. He was thrown into a concentration camp, and escaped.

She knows a few things about Nazi history—Jan 6th was downright fascist. Read 👇
5) So this cover is from a semi-tabloid magazine in Germany, according to @andreafeigl1. But even so, how did such a magazine still get it so damn right?! Maybe Germany 🇩🇪 has seen this kinda fascism before...
6) To be fair, Germany’s biggest outlet also went there...
7) And there was this.... the week after the Charlottesville, VA right wing protests and “very fine people on both sides” speech.
8) This was also on point.
9) And when Trump got elected... you can figure out the caption without translation.
10) To be honest, back in 2016, I was in a state of denial how bad Trump could get. Then @andreafeigl1 slapped some sense into me with her encyclopedic history of Nazi Germany and the Anschluss (annexation of Austria 🇦🇹), and how fascism arrives... and she was bloody right.
11) and yes, @andreafeigl1 is right - the trashing of @AP news equipment was equivalent of Nazi book burning.
12) the insurrectionists are being rounded up now...

The Brazil 🇧🇷 Manaus #COVID19 epidemic is getting epically worse. And many scientists suspect it might be because of the new Brazil P1 variant of #SARSCoV2, which has many multiple mutations. Quick thread 🧵 theguardian.com/world/2021/jan…
2) Brazil has been hit really hard already. In Oct 2020, someone estimated Manaus 🇧🇷 already have hit potentially 76% already infected — some saying it’s basically been plowed so hard, it’s now at herd immunity levels (getting there the dangerous way). science.sciencemag.org/content/371/65…
3) yet suddenly mortality is suddenly spiking again after a period of relative flatness. And Manaus is even skews younger than other areas. So this is odd.... reuters.com/article/us-hea…

BREAKING—Federal prosecutors in TX charge AF (Ret) Lt Col Larry Rendall Brock Jr. who stormed the Capitol carrying plastic zip-tie handcuffs. “He means to take hostages. He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government”.

Sorry, Q Shaman, Trump can’t pardon your insurrection, no matter how much you beg. Nope nope nope. It’s in the US Constitution.

Organic food, keep enjoying them.

2) No pardon for the “caveman” either.
3) Nor any pardon for the hypocritical firefighter.

TRUMP RULE TO OUST CAREER SCIENTISTS—Last ditch effort by Trump WH to enact term limits and mandate “5 year reviews” for career US govt scientists (like Fauci) so they can be removed or reassigned by political managers. Disgusting but true to form. politico.com/news/2021/01/1…
2) “Current and former officials say the last-minute rule could tempt top public health officials to maintain their jobs through political jockeying, at a time of cratering public confidence in agencies’ independence.
3) ““It’s been a step-by-step escalation in retaliation by HHS against career scientists throughout the pandemic,” said a current senior administration official, blaming HHS Secretary Alex Azar for the last-minute moves. “It’s a clear abuse of power by Azar.”

“The crisis of deep human suffering is in plain sight. There’s no time to waste. We have to act, & act now.

Since pandemic began: wealth of the top 1% of the nation has grown roughly $1.5 trillion—4x the amount for the entire bottom 50%.”
Who else is crying??? ^^^

JUST IN—The “Caveman” Peter Francis Stager (from Arkansas) is charged with violently beating a Metropolitan Police officer unconscious on the footsteps of the US Capitol in broad daylight. #CapitolRiot

2) Earlier— the Confederate flag bearer in the Capitol has also been arrested by the FBI. Father and son both.
3) Best of all— they also captured the man who threw a fire extinguisher 🧯 at police. The irony is that he is a firefighter 👨‍🚒. Can’t make this stuff up.
