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. ;)
2/ @CocaCola is putting out feelers for bears of color to take over for the canceled white bears.
3/ Just to be clear, this is 100% satire. Thus the use of the ;) face...
4/ But just to show that truth is stranger than fiction there have been calls for @CocaCola to stop using the polar bears. Literally.

BOMB THREAD: Yesterday former Capitol Police Chief, Steven Sund, revealed for the first time that it was the bombs discovered outside the RNC and DNC headquarters that triggered the evacuations of congress - not the protesters.
theepochtimes.com/pipe-bomb-disc…
2/ Two pipe bombs were placed outside of the Republican and Democratic headquarters the night before the Capitol protest. Evidently, moments before protesters entered the building someone reported them to police triggering the evacuation of the nearby Capitol building. Image
3/ It seems clear enough that whoever planted these bombs never planned for them to go off, but instead trigger the evacuation of the Capitol. You'll notice that they both had 60-minute timers and were never set to go off (they were placed the night before). Image

FACT CHECK FACT CHECK: Last week Texas was faced with statewide blackouts that resulted in massive casualties, at least 40 deaths, and billions in damages. Everyone is looking for scapegoats. Texans began hearing that renewable energy sources like wind and solar were to blame. Image
2/ EROCT had predicted that 100% of the power generated from wind turbines would be at risk if we faced the sort of temperatures we saw last week during the polar vortex as seen in this EROCT presentation: slideshare.net/alexmuse1/oper…
3/ But soon Texans read in the mainstream media that wind power was NOT to blame for the outage despite more than half of wind farms being out of service due to the extreme cold, ice, and snow. Progressive media outlets were gaslighting Texans.

SEPARATION OF POWERS? Before January 20th the idea that the President of the United States would allow the Speaker of the House of Representatives to take de facto control of an FBI investigation would be unthinkable. But that is just what President Biden has done. Image
2/ Despite serious concerns that Speaker Pelosi bears a large responsibility for the events at the Capitol on January 6th she has taken control of the investigation. She has named former Gen. Russel L. Honoré to lead the FBI's investigation into the protests at the Capitol. Image
3/ Honoré known as "The Ragin' Cajun" predetermined the outcome of the investigation when he recommended various members of Congress should be considered terrorists and President Trump and his son should be jailed for their part in the January 6th protests. Image

BREAKING: @TigerWoods was in a serious car accident. Jaws of life were required at the scene. Praying for the GOAT. @DonaldJTrumpJr
2/ Report from responding agency: Image
3/ Assuming Tiger recovers he really does need to hire a full-time driver. Literally, the guy has way too much to worry about to drive himself these days.

ELECTION INTEGRITY THREAD: Recently we've been hosting conversations on @joinClubhouse to share ideas that might help Americans regain confidence in the integrity of our elections. One idea that seemed super simple was for states to use address validators on their voter rolls.
2/ Delivery companies like USPS, UPS, FedEx, and Amazon depend on address verification. Providers of real-time address verification include Experian and UPS. Anyone can connect their APIs to a database of addresses and determine which are real.
ups.com/us/en/services…
3/ To prove the point we used one address validator to check addresses of registered voters in Detroit, Atlanta, and Philadephia - within minutes we were able to determine that at least 15% of addresses weren't valid - and as a result, violated state voting laws.

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.
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.
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.
