The Texas Power outage is about natural gas freezing, not wind.Texas is in trouble. But it’s not because their wind turbines lack de-icing features.
Roughly 34 Gigawatts of power capacity that is unavailable due to weather right now. Of that, 30 Gigawatts is down due to freezing at gas and coal fueled power plants.
Only 4 Gigawatts is due to reduced wind output. Another big factor is that Texas is the only state in the continental US with an isolated power grid, which means they can’t draw on the reserves from other states. #TakeASecToCheck out our sources
Looks like the military in Myanmar are taking a page out of our disinfo playbook. They are questioning the #ElectionIntegrity of their latest election, and have said the Dominion machines caused massive voter fraud.
Dominion machines were never used in Myanmar.
Dominion machines used in the US presidential election were not hacked and didn’t cause massive voter fraud.

There is a rumor that the Biden administration lost track of 20 million doses of the #COVIDvaccine. This rumor has been amplified by misleading article titles from many media sources. Here is what we know:
When the Trump administration began to distribute the vaccine, they put each state in charge of how to get the vaccine out to the public.
This means that once the government shipped out the allotted doses each state developed its own way of tracking those doses.
This is part of an ongoing wave of COVID-19 disinfo that is targeting vulnerable communities. Let’s make sure we all #TakeASecToCheck and verify information with a credible source before spreading it on social media. We can help #ChangeTheRatio of bad to good information on all of our newsfeeds!

Some GOP senators have called Trump’s impeachment trial unconstitutional because he is no longer in office. Many constitutional law experts disagree. Here’s why:
The Constitution does not exactly say whether or not a former president or other federal official can be impeached after they leave office. It does however give the House of Representatives “the sole power to impeach an official.” We can rely on precedent to determine what that means.
20 federal officials have been impeached by the Congressional House since our country was founded and one of them was impeached and tried after he resigned (Secretary of War William Belknap). This sets a legal precedent for Congress’s ability to impeach a former federal official.
Many scholars believe that by preventing former officials to be impeached you allow people to escape any accountability for wrong doing during their time in office. An impeachment conviction also could mean the official is barred from hold another federal position.
During a debate about whether or not to impeach Daniel Webster in the 1800s Former President and then Congressman John Quincy Adams said, “ I hold myself, so long as I have the breath of life in my body, amenable to impeachment by this House for everything I did during the time I held any public office.”
Once again, people are making a baseless claim about Joe Biden wearing an earpiece. This time they claim it cause him to goof up a salute to the Marines during his inauguration. This is FALSE and part of a decade long #DirtyDisinfoTrick.
Both the GOP and DEMS have been the target of baseless claims of wires and earpieces, starting with George W. Bush back in 2004. Other earpiece conspiracy targets include: Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Kelly Loeffler, and of course Joe Biden.
