Campos-Duffy (wife of GQP ex Rep Sean Duffy) is parroting a line of MAGA cult brainwashing that Pres Biden is mentally unfit & Dr Biden pushed him to run for office.

None of which is true. Joe Biden can deal with live press briefings better than TFG.

Also, he trolls better.😎
MAGAs really believe Biden is cognitively impaired. I used to believe this, too. I am ALWAYS open to changing my mind if presented with new evidence, & that's what happened after election day.

Biden had to run a near-virtual campaign bc he didn't want folk to die from events.
The need to #MaskUp #GetVaccinated and at times avoid large gatherings, to save lives, is not something that stops Donald Trump from doing unconscionable things like holding a rally in Alabama when there are NO spare ICU beds in the entire state.

Biden is not Trump. Thank GOD.
Since right now I'm in lockdown because my country of 5 million people #nzpol has vax rates akin to AL, MS, FL, LA, and TX and is therefore certain to reach the point of #HospitalSystemCollapse like they have or are about to, I'm watching the Southern US with interest.
Seeing that anti-vaxxer in chief Donald Trump had the temerity to hold this rally, in a state he has neglected for the past 4 years, I just kinda shake my head in disbelief. AL Gov Kay Ivey is a fool, and that's something I've noticed over several years.
Gov Kay Ivey (R) wants to have it both ways. She chastises the unvaccinated yet did nothing to stop this rally, when it was well within her power to do so.

Every first responder in AL is stretched to the max because of Covid. Yet they had to show up to police the Trump rally.
I've seen the directors of medicine at these Southern hospitals and health departments and universities go on TV and plead for help - in the form of basic safety precautions like #MaskUp #GetVaccinated and meaningfully socially distance eg cancel super spreader events.
I thank God every single day that Joe Biden won this free and fair election and took over, not a day too soon, in terms of the pandemic response. The number and nature of Trump's utter dereliction of duty in every area of the job will take years to fully record and publish.
Meantime, Biden has to clean up the messes left by a president who encouraged, enabled, & (still) condones the terrorist attack of 1/6, who freed 5,000 Taliban terrorists incl. leader Baradar (rivaling the butchers of Tehran), and who abandoned Afghan translators to their fate.
All things considered, Biden is doing an excellent job repairing the damage wrought by his predecessor. Anyone who thinks Trump got it right and Biden failed in Afghanistan should consider the witness testimony in this thread:

Lives are on the line in the USA, and in every allied country including Australia and New Zealand.

MAGA world knows they don't have any compelling, logical, well-supported arguments to make. All they have are logical fallacies, esp. ad hominem.
Biden is performing the role as a POTUS should. The White House is not a place to provide entertainment, or party conventions, or triumphant "don't let it take over your life" returns from Covid care in hospital.

It is for calm, stable, effective leadership.
Before he won the WH I didn't have a lot of respect for Joe Biden. Within a few weeks he had proven his mettle (to most of us!) I'm not a liberal or on the left. I'm an #XGOP conservative waiting for a political home.

Party politics don't matter. SAVING LIVES matters.

Thread: I'm prolife and I agree with every word the VP says in this clip.

She refers to the law as it stands. If you want to make elective abortion illegal, you can seek a constitutional amendment. What TX did was wrong, including for the prolife movement itself.
Firstly, I love that a female VP is in office and can say these things at this time. Thank you to everyone who voted for Biden-Harris. You saved so many lives, and ensured the USA could start the long process of restoring democracy.
The abortion debate comes down to whether you support a woman's right to bodily autonomy, or the baby's right to same (incl 50% who are female.) I want to support both, but I can't. The issue forces us to choose the lesser of two evils. Like most of the big political issues do.

These 5 WaPo headlines are an insight into the state of play in the US and the world right now. I discuss them below.

Summary: Our opponents are far right fascism AND our own complacency.
We're now seeing at least daily stories like that of the school principal physically confronted and threatened by a far right fascist MAGA cult parent just for doing his job.

These people are dangerous. They are domestic terrorists and we must use situational awareness 24/7.
I advise reviewing all your personal safety and security arrangements with this in mind.

It's too late once an assailant is in front of you and able to do harm in a matter of seconds.

Also, always, #SeeSomethingSaySomething. @DHSgov has good readiness tips.

(1) 18hrs ago 6 innocents were seriously injured when an ISIS sympathizer stabbed them in a NZ supermarket. Police took out the terrorist. They were meant to watch him 24/7... the PM doesn't think they did anything wrong & won't say how many others are on a watchlist.

(2) I'm not criticizing the heroic rank and file NZ Police members who shot the terrorist, saving dozens of lives.

I'm criticizing their incapable Commissioner who cares more about making excuses for himself, and PM Jacinda Ardern who doesn't see her approach is the wrong one.
(3) What Ardern and the people she allows to be in charge of our public service agencies will never admit is that their actions are worsening the extremely challenging situation NZ is already in, with the pandemic especially.

(1) Thread: Another terrorist attack in NZ

This happened just a few hours ago at 2.40pm. It's 7pm now.

(2) The only fatality was the attacker, who was shot by police, after injuring 6 people. He was:

>known to police and the courts as an ISIS supporter
>a Sri Lankan national who arrived in NZ in 2011
>on a watchlist since 2016

(3) I've said for years a jihadist attack was inevitable one day in NZ. Relieved no innocents died but the 6 injured are forever changed.

The first NZ terrorist attack in my lifetime was the far right fascist targeting of two mosques on March 15, 2019.

51 people killed.

A bit of thread. About unitary vs federal government models during an emergency like a pandemic.

I focus the most on 5 countries, the main Anglosphere:

UK, US, CAN, AU and NZ.

Only NZ has a unitary system. Now, we are small but:
A major weakness in the federal model is exposed by how these countries have fared so far in the pandemic.

The federal model has some important strengths, and is necessary in a massive country like the US.

I'm saying there are more than two options. They're infinite.
In NZ and AFAIK elsewhere, health agencies are leading the response and not civil defence / emergency management agencies.

This is a huge mistake.

And it ties in with the federal vs unitary debate, too.

Please, Twitter, hire me to edit your draft headlines so you stop embarrassing yourselves concerning hurricanes.

It's not "another" storm. It's the same storm #Ida, after it's been a hurricane but is still a hazard until it is well clear of land.

#HWStormWatch #WxTwitter
There's 3 problems with Twitter's headline.

1. It's absent of punctuation. They use it in other headlines.

2. This causes confusion bc many people don't know how a post-TC is named.

3. Maybe it was deliberate, to generate clicks.
Imma assume it was an innocent mistake on the part of Twitter. Occam's Razor.

If it was deliberate, then it's one of many examples I've seen over the years where potentially saving lives is less important to them than Twitter marketing.
