Highlights fro #Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing on foreign interference via social media platforms:
"Election interference from abroad represents an intolerable assault on the democratic foundation this republic was built on" per @SenatorBurr
"It's also important that the American people know that these activities neither began nor ended with the 2016 elections" per @SenatorBurr "Foreign actors continue an aggressive and pervasive influence campaign against the #UnitedStatesofAmerica"
When #US failed, it turned to threats. #Ecuador was the 1st to find itself in the cross hairs #Americans were blunt: If #Ecuador refused to drop the resolution-#US would unleash punishing trade measures & withdraw crucial military aid-The #Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced
The showdown over breast feeding was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from #USA.
Since the #US was founded in 1776, #America has been at war during 214 out of her 235 calendar years of its' existence
In other words, there were only 21 calendar years in which the #US didn't wage any wars
Who is the Terrorist?
Why do they hate us Dad?
#US#Pentagon needs $20 billion in munition alone @GeorgeWBush__ dropped 70,000 bombs on 5 countries #Obama dropped 100,000 bombs on 7 countries #Trump dropped 44,000 bombs in his 1st year
121 bombs a day, 1 bombs every 12 minuets
Who is the #Terrorist?
#US#Iraq war veteran Vince Emanuele: "Moral injury is the real reason why #US veterans are committing suicide, as they realize all the horrors of war & innocent people killed were for nothing but #US corporate interests"
#US veterans marched in #NewOrleans on July 1, to raise awareness for the high rates of veteran suicides across #America. They were wearing ‘dead masks’ to represent the high cost of war.
US Department of Veterans Affairs report: Average number of veterans suicide is 20 per day
US #Iraq war veteran Emanuele: In fact-the #US government, especially under @realDonaldTrump is exacerbating the problem by continuing militaristic operations all over the world-If US government was interested in preventing veteran suicides-it would stop creating so many veterans
July 4th-#Americans celebrate their “freedom” by remembering that #USA began as an uprising, intent on ending the overburdens of taxation-tyranny-oppression & the pilfering of USA’s natural resources
So what has changed since 1776? Absolutely nothing. In fact, it has gotten worse
Today-#Americans regularly make payments+interest to #IRS because they are too poor to pay taxes in 1 lump sum-which keep citizens permanently indebted to a government with no problem spending taxes on perpetual wars, 17-agency spy infrastructure, nukes & funding #Israel's wars
1. In 1987 it is believed that #Trump was recruited by #SovietUnion, specifically recruited by Kryuchkov head of First Chief Directorate, a division within the #KGB who's primary responsibility was to gather foreign intelligence
@realDonaldTrump is proud & celebrates having his Immigration & Customs Enforcement forces that are trained in #Israel, "Liberate" #American towns from #Americans who he looks at as just being MS-13 international criminal gangsters
If you dance to #TelAviv’s tune—&, sadly, #Trump does—then you believe that the only folk who support #Palestinians are either religion-hating, secular Lefties or radical #Islamists & #Hamas cheerleaders who hang out on the fringes of society. The reality is quite different.
The reality is different as was illustrated admirably at a remarkable gathering of mainstream #American#Christians in St Louis, #Missouri when the #Presbyterian Church overwhelmingly adopted a No. of robust resolutions in solidarity with #Palestine at its 223rd General Assembly
According to the poll
59% of all voters are concerned that those opposed to #Trump’s policies will resort to violence
33% are Very Concerned
31% of Likely #US Voters say it’s likely that US will experience a 2nd civil war sometime in the next 5 years-with 11% say it’s Very Likely
The #US poll shows that concern for a civil war is nearly 50/50 among #Democrats & #Republicans, with Democrats showing slightly more fear with a 5% margin. #Americans are being polarized—deliberately —& we are now seeing the effects.
2)While a potential #BlueWave2018 is great, please do not think it will solve the systemic problems in this country. Look at it as amputating a gangrenous limb from a Type II diabetic, who won’t lose weight/eat right/take insulin.
2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->
When #McKinney, #Texas police officer David Eric Casebolt brutally took down a teenage girl at a party in June, he used a form of martial arts "Krav Maga" in which he trained exclusively. These combat techniques were developed by #Israel Forces
This is a tiny reflection of a larger reality existing in #US law enforcement explaining brutality & militarization characterizing its police force. US cops traveled to learn from 1 of the world's most repressive & dangerous State forces—#Israeli military & intelligence apparatus
#American media political commentator John Miranda recently stated that #US police brutality is directly linked to the training some officers receive in #Israel.
[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.
The Creators of the World’s Misfortunes
by Joseph Goebbels
"One could not understand this #war if one did not always keep in mind the fact that International J//ewry stands behind all the unnatural forces that our united enemies use to attempt to deceive the world and keep humanity in the dark.
"It is, so to speak, the mortar that holds the enemy coalition firmly together, despite its differences of class, ideology, and interests.
1. #Trump's first known visit to #Soviet and #Moscow in 1987 looks to be part of a pattern. The #SteeleDossier says that the #Kremlin had been cultivating# Trump for “at least five years” before 2016 elections, meaning it asserts a beginning in 2011 or 2012.
