@charliekirk11 You are mistaking #PlannedParenthoodVotes, part of a legal #PAC (#PoliticalActionCommittee) with #PlannedParenthood which uses its federal funding within highly restrictive Federal rules such as the #HydeAmendment which bans federal funding for abortions.

@charliekirk11 #PlannedParenthood's super #PAC, #PlannedParenthoodVotes, kicked off a $45 million electoral program targeted toward battleground states for the 2020 election. That's eight times what it spent during the 2018 midterms.

@charliekirk11 #Trump flew to #Afghanistan for his #Thanksgiving dinner.
He probably took the turkey he didn't pardon so they wouldn't have to spend extra money to feed him.
Speaking of govt. funding causing the death of children, read what the U.S. military has done throughout its history.

1.voglio spiegarvi,spero per l’ultima volta,il caso svedese contro Julian #Assange,che è stato archiviato ieri per la 3a volta in 9anni.Mi scuso, ma proprio mi manda in bestia la saga di errori madornali che i media continuano a propalare
2. Il 20agosto2010,esattamente 3settimane dopo la pubblicazione di 92mila documenti segreti sulla guerra in #Afghanistan,Julian #Assange finisce indagato dalla Swedish Prosecution Authority di Stoccolma per 1) stupro 2)molestie sessuali ai danni di due donne svedesi
3. Il 25agosto 2010,esattamente 5 giorni dopo essere stata aperta,l’indagine per stupro viene chiusa dalla procuratrice capo di Stoccolma: Eva Finne’, che stabilisce che le accuse di stupro non sussistono e tutta l’indagine va derubricata a “molestie sessuali”

Countries & partners announce commitments to vaccinate 450 million children against #polio each year and to overcome barriers to reaching every child 👉bit.ly/35fovzd
@DrTedros @WHO_Europe @WHOSEARO @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @antonioguterres @UN @UN_News_Centre This pledging event comes on the heels of a major announcement last month that the 🌍 has eradicated two of the three wild poliovirus strains, leaving only wild poliovirus type 1 still in circulation.

QAnon claims Debbie Wasserman Schultz put out a contract to MS-13 Hispanic gang members to murder Seth Rich, both to punish him for the heist, and to prevent him from doing further damage to Hillary’s campaign and the DNC. #DarkToLight

Did anyone ask #AlexanderVindman exactly what he heard, in #TrumpeseEnglish & #Zelensky Ukrainian during the three #ImpeachableEllipses?
Do #tRumpsTwitterDotDotDots mean anything but laughs for #StephenColbert?
Could his twin brother be the #WhistleBlower?
vox.com/2019/10/30/209…
Anyone who reads this exposé will get far closer to the truth than those spending days pondering whether or not the #ImpeachableEllipses mean any more than #tRumpsTwitterDotDotDots.

Is the #whistleblower #EricCiaramella, or could it be #HyperPatriot #AlexanderVindman’s twin brother #EugeneVindman — or both?
Does anyone smell collusion with #AdamSchiff?
Ciaramella worked with former VP #JoeBiden & former CIA Director #JohnBrennan.

In the first half of 2019, CIA death squads in Afghanistan murdered more civilians than ISIS and the Taliban combined. newyorker.com/magazine/2019/…
“They’re very well trained. They have the best weapons and equipment." "Sometimes they go into people’s homes and just shoot everybody.” Three Americans were there. “I could see them,”“They were speaking English.” #Afghanistan
"So far this year, more than eight thousand civilians have been killed or wounded." "...the violence has never made less sense." "Under Trump... the conflict has entered perhaps its most troubling phase, one that is being prosecuted largely in secret." #Afghanistan

1. Ongoing thread covering #IS’s response to and comms around recent developments in northern #Syria. Focus will be on camps, prisons and tactics.
2. 9 Oct: Something weird going on in #Raqqa, which was, per #SDF reports last night, subject to a “large-scale assault” by #IS. Meanwhile, total radio silence from #IS.
3. This is strange. When #IS has mounted flash urban assaults in years gone by, it has intensively reported on them, often as the attacks were ongoing. Think #Palmyra, Dec 16; Kirkuk, Oct 16, #Rutbah, May 16, #Kobane, Jun 15.

It’s a little appreciated fact (in part because it’s counterintuitive) that the more virulent a terrorist group is, the closer US troops need to be to it IOT be effective. Why? Because the US model of CT is one of network targeting. 1/n
This means trying to remove nodes of the network faster than the network can reconstitute itself. If you can consistently do that long enough, you can eventually dismantle a terrorist group (here “consistently” & “long enough” are group-dependent). 2/n
If a group is not particularly resilient (eg disorganized, inexperienced), ops to dismantle the group can be “slower” than ops against a more resilient group (ie, the rate at which you need to remove nodes can be less). Consequently, you can be further away. 3/n

[THREAD] Morning DC, as a 🇪🇺 newly arrived at the @Washinstitute, I’ve been surprised by several things in the current US discussion on #Syria and the fight against #ISIS. I have focused on two in this piece on @thehill: #endlesswars & #burdensharing thehill.com/opinion/intern… 1/
I have indeed heard a lot about the need to stop « #endlesswars » in the #MiddleEast. European can probably see good reasons for this from #Afghanistan to #Iraq, as many of them opposed the war in Iraq. However...2/
Seen from #Europe, #Syria is not one of US #endlesswars, but a low-cost, high-efficiency CT op. It has not been shaped by US intervention, rather by US reluctance to intervene. Europeans who opposed the US-led war in #Iraq consistently called for more U.S. leadership in Syria. 3/

Tulsi Doesn't know what she is talking about! The #US never engaged in a fight with the Syrian Arab Army, they were there after the Arab-spring, The #US only helped the YPG and SDF forces control their side of Syria without Assad meddling in that part in the fight against ISIS.
In Yemen there are no Syrian civilians who are starving to death, And the US never intended to have a regime change in #Syria because they know once Russia came in and helped Assad that was a lost case and moved on in the fight against ISIS. The only Regime change that the US...
Succeeded was #Iraq, #Afghanistan, #Libya following after the 9/11 attacks on the #US. And this was in the Bush and Obama presidency. Donald Trump has always said he doesn't want wars or to engage in them, and he kept his campaign promises now pulling back from #Syria.

For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.

Who are the #Kurds? Why should overthrow of Govt of #Syria be their objective? Are they on a quest for #Kurdistan or are they just pawns in the game of geopolitical players? What are the implications of the Turkish #OperationPeaceSpring for #India?
greatgameindia.com/kurds-kurdista…
In 1973 President Richard Nixon & Secretary of State Henry Kissinger instigated a CIA #Kurdish uprising in #Iraq against #SaddamHussein. The US walked away from the rebellion when Saddam and the Shah of #Iran settled their differences, leaving the #Kurds to face their own fate.
In addition to political disagreements and rivalries, tensions between the two dominant Iraqi #Kurdish political parties, the #Kurdistan Democratic Party #KDP and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan #PUK escalated to a civil war that killed more than 2,000 #Kurds in the mid-1990s.

A thread on C20th #Afghanistan this evening, the theme “modernisation”, periodically the goal of Afghan govts. I start from a building, the British Legation in Kabul, which I first heard about from an archaeologist on Cyprus who’d helped catalogue its library in the 70s. (LlM)
Here is film of life at the Legation in the 1930s, from the Centre of South Asian Studies at Cambridge: s-asian.cam.ac.uk/archive/films/… I saw it in 2009, when it was a shell: it has now been restored & houses the Embassy of Pakistan. (LlM)
It was built in the 20s, & was designed to communicate a message to Afghanistan from its neighbour, British India. Curzon, Foreign Sec, wished His Majesty’s representative in Afghanistan to be “the best-housed man in Asia,” better housed, by implication than the Afghan King (LlM)

I am so glad you finally came out and said it: The #Syria Mess is #Obama’s fault as “one man” who implemented it. And “One Woman’s” fault who was “his” architect in “his” #StateDepartment: @HillaryClinton. Bravo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
After all, in November 2011, I blew the whistle on “Both of You” And was the first to Expose your #ISIS Camp In #Turkey & Your Preparations for #Syria Operations right after #Libya @HillaryClinton #Obama. Here it is on dated & on Record: newsbud.com/2011/11/21/bfp…
Nothing like a good public confession for the soul. A few more and you may start seeing some soul cleansing.

"We're doing better" at using all elements of nat'l power, per @FDD_CMPP Chair, former Nat'l Sec Adviser, ret LTG HR McMaster at @FDD

But warns against viewing military ops as "ends in and of themselves"
@FDD_CMPP @FDD "The map of the world is being reshaped" per @JCZarate1 at @FDD "There's a physical reshaping, there's a virtual reshaping... You also have reshaped alliances"
"We are not very good at not just combining elements of power but thinking about how the asymmetric properties of the global environment are actually taking place & how we operate in it" per @JCZarate1
