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/…
4/ Most Americans like Elon didn't miss the fact that virtually every mainstream media outlet refused to kill the still-undisputed Hunter Biden story first published in the New York Post (the article Twitter and Facebook censored).

5/ With their preferred candidate in office Elon and his fellow Americans have noticed the media has shifted from constant attacks on President Trump to constant praise and puff pieces for President Biden. For example:

7/ The truth is that Elon Musk and his fellow Americans have given up on the mainstream media - they simply don't trust them anymore. What remains to be seen is whether or not they can re-earn the people's trust or if they even want to. axios.com/media-trust-cr…

NEWSOM RECALL THREAD: Thousands of California residents, both Democrats and Republicans, have joined together to demand that Governor @GavinNewsom be removed from office. To achieve their goal they started a recall petition and have been gathering signatures for weeks. Image
2/ CA law requires at least 17% of voters sign the recall petition (1.49 million). As of this week, more than 1.5 million CA voters have signed the petition to recall Newsom, but the Democratic Secretary of State, Shirley Weber, has insisted on signature verification. Image
3/ Weber thus far has invalidated the signatures 130,108 California voters and is examining another 296,000. In previous signature verifications, fewer than 40-60% were checked. This time she is checking more than 80% in an attempt to eliminate as many signatures as possible. Image

1/ With #SCOTUS clearly unwilling to hear any of the various election cases that made it to their docket and every state stonewalling audits of voting machines it is confusing why Dominion is pursuing suits against so many wealthy Americans - Americans with the means to fight.
2/ Dominion Voting Systems is has won but instead of taking their victory lap, they're giving their opponents a second bite at the apple by suing everyone for billions of dollars.
3/ It is not clear the executives at Dominion realize just how nasty and time-consuming civil litigation can be? They'll be spending the next few years in videotaped depositions, court hearings, and having every aspect of their private life investigated and exposed.

BREAKING: The @CocaCola polar bears first appeared in a French ad for Coke in 1922. They reappeared in the 90s and were designed by Rhythm & Hues @RhythmAndHues. Sadly we now learn that they're 'too white' for Coca-Cola. ;) Image
2/ @CocaCola is putting out feelers for bears of color to take over for the canceled white bears. Image
3/ Just to be clear, this is 100% satire. Thus the use of the ;) face...

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.
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.
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.

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
