PROCESS THREAD: I've mentioned this before, but thought I'd mention it again. In general, I share stories from journalists I find interesting. Often I'll attempt to add more context to the story through my threads. But sometimes I'll share stories I haven't heard elsewhere.
2/ For example I shared a story that Congressional Democrats were discussing legislation that would require the removal of confederate soldiers from Arlington National Cemetery. I couldn't find a current story about it so I shared it unsourced. Hundreds of people freaked out.
3/ If I don't share a news source I'm reporting human sources that I've cultivated (I love tips BTW). But when I get a report (every story that turns out to be true results in a news report) that is corroborated by a news source I'll share the link.
4/ To that end, today someone else picked up the story about the confederate graves and wrote about it and I've shared the story here: conservative-daily.com/2020/07/15/war…
5/ And as someone noted, it was actually passed. The House is discussing actually doing it...

COVID-19 BILL THREAD: Between impeaching President Trump and work to limit his options for burial upon his death, the Democrats have crafted a Covid-19 relief bill that provides very little relief and a lot to cash for their political allies - more than $1 trillion in pork. Image
2/ Best case Covid-related provisions come to less than $800 billion with the remaining $1 trillion going to bailouts for Democratic constituencies, expansions of progressive programs, pork, and unrelated policy changes.
3/ Lockdown Rewards: Democrats have ensured that almost all of the $350 billion earmarked for state and local governments go to blue states that imposed the strictest economic lockdowns - almost nothing for red states. Image

TEXAS POWER CRISIS THREAD: Once it was clear that the polar vortex would engulf the entire state of Texas @GovAbbott declared an emergency and asked President Biden for an EPA waiver to allow power generation facilities to operate at full capacity until the emergency passed. Image
2/ Biden's EPA refused Governor Abbott's request and instead offered to allow certain power generation facilities a waiver if they raised the prices they charged to Texans to more than $1,500/MWh resulting in massive statewide power outages and a failure of the grid. ImageImageImageImage
3/ The truth is that the federal government controls how Texas generates electricity - the mix of sources and the capacity of each. The EPA requires that Texas' fossil fuel power generators operate far below their maximum output. Image

GINA CARANO INTERVIEW THREAD: @ginacarano, the Star Wars star, sat down with @benshapiro for an hour-long interview revealing the shocking truth behind Hollywood's cancel culture and the toxic work environment promoted by Disney's Kathleen Kennedy.
2/ @ginacarano explains that she wasn't interested in politics until she saw what was happening in 2020 with the dishonesty in the media and the lockdowns. Her biggest awakening came after she was pressured to use pronouns in her Twitter bio.
3/ In response Gina added “boop/bop/beep” as her pronouns and woke-twitter exploded suggesting she was attacking the transgender community. She immediately clarified she wasn't making a statement against the trans community but against woke-twitter

MEDIA TRUST THREAD: The mainstream media is still in a meltdown after early mover, Elon Musk, scrapped his company's media relations department because the media is no longer trusted or relied upon by the American people.
2/ Elon watched as the media spent the entire Trump presidency destroying their credibility by gaslighting the nation and as a result, he canceled them and there is seemingly nothing they can do about it.

3/ WaPo's Hamilton Nolan wrote, "We are living through a historic, technology-fueled shift in the balance of power between the media and its subjects. The subjects are winning." cjr.org/public_editor/…

COVID-19 DEATH THREAD: It is important for all Americans to remember just how many of our fellow citizens have died from the pandemic since President Biden took office. This thread will remind us just how many lives have been lost as a result of his failed leadership.

ANTI-CENSORSHIP PROPOSAL: More than 180 million Americans live in the so-called Red States like Texas and Florida. IMHO, we should stop calling these states 'red' and start calling them 'free'. If the 'Free States' would band together they could end political censorship.
2/ Each 'Free State' could pass anti-censorship legislation that would make it very expensive for #BigTech to censor political speech on their platforms. Free states could fine social media companies $100,000 for each post they censored.
3/ The fines could be shared 25% to the reporting party, 50% to the censored party, and 25% to the free states. Social media companies would be given 'safe harbor' from lawsuits for political speech they allowed to be posted on their platforms.
