Now we know for sure it's unsafe to open schools in the fall.

Lies are lies. Racism is racism. It is essential for reporters to call these truths what they are in order to inform the public what is really going on.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau turned down Trump's invitation to the white house to celebrate new trade agreement

PS/ Remember also that, in a locale where testing is increasing, positivity rate should be *declining*. The fact that testing is increasing slightly while positivity rate is *increasing dramatically* is—and there's simply no other way to put this—terrifying.

The COVID-19 positivity goal for Miami-Dade county is 10%. It's at 26%. A CNN medical analyst interviewed today said America is in "freefall" with respect to COVID-19. Please remember that anyone who gets it—hospitalized or not, symptomatic or not—could suffer permanent damage.

Much has been made of USA's poor #COVID19 performance vs Europe's. But a FAR more meaningful contrast is USA v Canada. We share a 5,525 mile border, language & trade. Since Mar 21 the border's been closed. And:
🇨🇦   107,197 cases, 8,732 dead
🇺🇸  2,852,807 cases, 129,718 dead

Yesterday, the US🇺🇸 reported 54,442 new #COVID19 cases, the nation's highest daily toll since January.  The US per capita rate is 4 times Canada's, at 894 per 100K population. 
The reasons are structural & leadership.
Americans should look w/humility to the North, and learn.

Trump’s task force should resign en masse. It’s doing nothing more than giving Trump cover for his deliberate lies. Every penny of our tax dollars should be spent not on killing more Americans under the fig leaf the task force gives him but on fighting the virus and saving lives.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: sources are telling us that the GOP internal polling show Democrats winning the white house, senate and house

The stimulus checks were meant to get average Americans through the lockdown, but those $1,200 payouts were small change compared with the billions in tax breaks the CARES Act handed out to the country’s wealthiest. https://propub.li/3e32fg6

Your reminder that America's richest 1 percent now own half the value of the U.S. stock market. The richest 10 percent own 92 percent. So when Trump says the stock market is the economy, know who he's really talking about.

The baby had such a good time at his Mt. Rushmore party this weekend, that they are making him happy and giving him another party in New Hampshire this weekend. If you want to get Covid, you can go!

It is alarming how all these progressive leaders get on Twitter & hypocritically tweet out earnest COVID messages about staying safe, vigilant, caring for each other, & getting each other’s backs, all while ignoring the tens of thousands of people they cage & allow to get COVID.

This weekend Trump gave campaign speeches at taxpayer-funded events attacking millions of Americans and defending racist symbols to large audiences that did not wear masks or observe social distancing. He had little to say about our 3 million COVID-19 cases and 130,000 deaths.

I don’t think saving our species from extinction is possible without dismantling American capitalism.

Attempted lynching on July 4, 2020. A Black man went to the lake with his friends. Nearly killed by White supremacists. Wanted story shared. "I'm not sure what to do next. I consider myself a leader. Leaders are supposed to know what to do." His words: https://m.facebook.com/1175677046/posts/10222147157086001/?d=n

TW// attempted lynching of a black man. 

A black man, Vauhxx Rush Booker living in Bloomington, Indiana went to visit lake Monroe with his white friends when white supremacists began to target HIM. This man was almost lynched. In broad day. But y’all always ruling ‘suicide’🤔

Greatest trick the police ever pulled was convincing Americans that they are necessary. Vast majority calls are for public health issues/non-violent crimes. And they’re particularly bad at preventing, deescalsting & solving violent crime. Not an opinion. Data-backed fact.

Only about 8% of the 1 millions police calls for service in Los Angeles involve violent crimes. Defunding the police and replacing much of what they do with non-police solutions wouldn’t be complicated. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-07-05/lapd-911-calls-reimagining-police

When researching this case I found literally zero news articles about it. If there are any, it will take digging to find. Lakeith Smith was 15 when he was charged as an accomplice to murder.  #LaKeithSmith https://www.newsweek.com/lakeith-smith-alabama-accomplice-law-murder-police-petition-1510870

Listen to the guy with decades of experience working in elections. When more of us are inside the room - in training sessions, helping voters, compiling results - the better chance mischief will not go unnoticed.
