It’s odd how many different people seem to have specifically had technical problems with their text messages on January 6, 2021.
If you read the story, they don’t plan to replace anything close to that number. They want a “chilling effect” that they expect can be achieved by firing and replacing several thousand career civil servants.
@jonathanvswan I was skeptical, and I didn't argue that it takes a genius to fire 50,000 people. It takes a lot of work and attention to *replace* them, however, and Trump and his team didn't have the focus to appoint the available 4,000 people the first time around. https://t.co/Bj56DOlj2o

Constitution: "State legislatures shall have the power to set laws to select a slate of electors." National Popular Vote Interstate Compact: "We agree to vote for the candidate who gets the most votes." The Federalist: "no not like that"

The carried interest loophole is a stain on the tax code. It does not help small businesses, pension funds, other investors in hedge funds or private equity and everyone in the industry knows it. It is an embarrassment and it should end now.
The Pentagon is officially confirming that Russia has set up 18 filtration camps in Ukraine where it executes Ukrainian civilians and POWs. Once again, there’s a reason we need to support Ukraine against this barbarity. We have only seen the tip of the iceberg so far https://t.co/8IpzR7E2ga
NEW: Russia is using expansionist rhetoric to try and mask losses and failures on the battlefield in Ukraine, U.S. defense officials believe, including new calls to remove the Zelensky admin. U.S. revealed that 🇷🇺 has 18 filtration camps in 🇺🇦 where executions have taken place

This is astonishing, yet not surprising. If it feels like you're far less safe in NYC than ever before, it's not bc shootings are up. It's because the media (fueled by lies & fearmongering by NYC Mayor Eric Adams) is up. Look at this chart. Red line is shootings. Grey is media.
