.@GregAbbott_TX: These kids are some of the 1000s of Texans you killed in past 8 months. This time, because of your deals with energy buddies. The kids died in a fire lit as they tried to stave off freezing.

On you, Greg. On you.

This is a thread of children you’ve killed...1
...here is an 11 year old boy named Cristian. He was freezing, the power was off because of your corrupt deals. Climbed in bed, to get under a pile of blankets.

He froze to death. As he drew he last breath, @GregAbbott_TX, you were on Fox, lying that wind power caused this....2
...think about that @GregAbbott_TX. You were too stupid and corrupt to do anything to help us. Instead, there you were, soft skinned, well fed and warm as you appeared on Fox to lies, time you could have spent helping. As lies passed your lips, Cristian’s lips turned blue...
...JJ Boatman is another of your victims, @GregAbbott_TX. This was taken about same day you trashed a secret COVID report on how to open Texas safely, which meant carefully. Your business contributors wanted to open immediately, regardless of risk. So you did. And JJ died...3
...this is Tagan White, another child you murdered, @GregAbbott_TX. Had you stuck with medical expertise, and used system you were advised, rather than firing those who told you opening all at once like your buddies wanted would kill, Tagan would not have died in kindergarten...4
...@GregAbbott_TX, I could never list all the people you killed with your greed and corruption. The numbers numb the mind. A baby. A 17yr old. 3 siblings who are orphaned. The 1000s and 1000s of others. You are the worst mass murderer in Texas history. All for money and power

How to not run/and run a business:

In 1976, my family was Big Thompson River flood. 2 hotels survived -locally owned one we were in, which let people stay free & doubled up rooms, & Holiday Inn, which tripled rates. I’ve never again stayed in HI for 45 years because of that..1
...we’ve seen the opposite in Texas disaster - a community minded business that wins public affection & is better managed than the state. @HEB is beloved in TX, more so since the recent crisis. In a town where people were in financial trouble, HEB gave away groceries for free...2
...literally, you would walk into the store, head to the cashier, and they would thank you and send you on your way. They were prepared for a disaster. Why? Because at the beginning of the pandemic, this grocery store chain -GROCERY STORES! - commissioned John’s Hopkins to do...3

The answer is yes, @texasdemocrats. They just don’t care.

@GregAbbott_TX was given a report last spring on how to open Texas safely. But his business buddies wanted to open everything at once, so Gregg fired folks who wrote safety report, threw it open knowing it would kill....
...and let 1000s died. Also, @texasdemocrats - @GregAbbott_TX knew that the communities with highest infection rates and death in Dallas were the minority and poor communities, so our leaders sent vaccines there first to save lives and slow the spread. But Greggs rich buddies...2
...wanted to go shopping, and certainly didn’t want to wait in line with folks down at Fair Park so, like a good Trumper, he used the vaccines to blackmail us. He told Dallas, @texasdemocrat, if we didn’t stop worrying about the poor and highest death minority communities....3

For those of us suffering & dying in Texas, the sociopathy of @GOP that leads to an astonishing lack of concern about our lives by evil folk like @GregAbbott_TX @GovernorPerry @TuckerCarlson @DanCrenshawTX et al who blatantly lie about what’s happening...1 forbes.com/sites/joewalsh…
...just to score political points - and protect the profits of energy companies - is almost incomprehensible. These are people who would claim Social Security caused 9/11 if it was convenient. What caused this catastrophe is vast vast majority from gas, then coal/nuclear...2
...then wind. The ONLY source of power that is delivering more than expected in budgeting is wind. But that’s not convenient to say for the oil/gas/coal industry, so the @GregAbbott_TX @GovernorPerry @DanCrenshawTX stand atop our dead bodies lying to protect the companies...2

If Texas was on the national grid, our homes wouldn’t be as low as 15 degrees. But no, we had typical yeee-haw thinking we’re better than everyone. Or we could have planned ahead, made sure our wind turbines had cold weather packages - companies like Siemens sell them.../1
...given how much of our power comes from turbines now frozen. Oh, but to do that, theyd have to rely on climate change models that show this has been happening in Texas, would happen, & will get worse as warming air changes both pressure zones around Arctic and jet stream...2
...which has led to polar vortex to come much much further south. Instead, these idiots who think they know more than experts go “Yee-haw! Hardy-hardy-har! It’s so cold and the libs say global warming!! Har har. Let’s watch The Bachelor now.” This would not be anywhere near...3

The craven anti-Americanism of @marcorubio @HawleyMO @LeaderMcConnell et al has long-term consequences. By arguing John Quincy Adams didn't understand the Constitution, & that impeachment after holding office - which applies to ALL impeachable, from cabinet members to jurists..1
...any Senate-confirmed official who swears to abide by the constitution can engage in ANY anti-constitutional act, can violate their oath with impunity at any time in office, immediately resign if caught, then run for elected office later. Sure, the #GQP will immediately flip..2
...to the opposite argument in those instances where they find it convenient, but anyone being subjected to impeachment could insist that they have no authority over them, impeachment is unconstitutional, and try even to take it to court, citing @marcorubio @HawleyMO and all.../3
