This is a bombshell. @TheAtlantic calls for #Trump impeachment. Because he has waged, "an attack on the very foundations of America’s constitutional democracy."

"#Impeachment is a process, not an outcome, a rule-bound procedure..."

"...for investigating a president, considering evidence, formulating charges, and deciding whether to continue on to trial."
"By denying the debate its proper outlet, #Congress has succeeded only in intensifying its pressures."

"And by declining to tackle the question head-on, it has deprived itself of its primary means of reining in the chief executive."

@afbranco Because people today have a short attention span / are flat lazy we will highlight some excerpts from #JulianMcall's article on Linkdin regarding comments by Mayor #MarshallKamena of #Livermore #California RT @DunbarJoseph #QAnon @Reinebow23 @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul @Ange6H777
@afbranco @DunbarJoseph @Reinebow23 @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul @Ange6H777 First of all this is not an attack on #obama/#hillaryclinton: Their actions stand for themselves. Whilst #cnn constantly hammers President #Trump with unverified stories/comments etc they give absolutely no accountability to barry or the hag RT #QAnon @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul
@afbranco @DunbarJoseph @Reinebow23 @StevenRCorey1 @CarrionSoul @Ange6H777 The comment regarding @POTUS are things such as: undignified, no decorum, no statesmanship'. To this we say so f'n what. We're sure #Venezuelas's #Maduro was a smooth talker to his citizens before the election and now they live in a #socialism nightmare RT #QAnon @CarrionSoul

The 1st day of 2019 began with #Congress CM Kamalnath rejecting #VandeMataram singing at the Secretariat
says, ‘we’ve sung it from time-to-time, need no certificate of patriotism from anyone’
Well @OfficeOfKNath

The revolutionaries in Bengal had a profound impact on entire country

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

Situation Room Q- Code 5133 1511

Q MINUS is abbreviated Q-

On Wednesday 2 Jan 19 @POTUS #Trump will offer FACELIFT @NancyPelosi and Chuck The Schmuck @SenSchumer a deal to avoid the death penalty for their #treason. The meeting is billed to be about the southern border fence.
The meeting will begin by explaining to FACELIFT and Upchuck what they, and they only, must agree to by 1511 to avoid having the SHUTDOWN cause the new #Congress to NOT BE SEATED on 3 January in which case @POTUS could...
...continue and make RECESS APPOINTMENTS prior to SPECIAL ELECTION of 16 April 2019.

On the place mat in front of @POTUS @realDonaldTrump will be THE #LIZCROKIN FILE.

I recently met with a desperate #Venezuela family about to overstay tourist visa. Dad (professional), mom (professional) and kid. Staying w/ relatives & desperate to find a way not to return to political threats, hunger, utter lack of services, including medical care...
Why me? I have #HumanRights background, a university job & #LatinAmerica experience. Basically bupkus in the terrordome politics of desperate people in Trumpland. But I bought them coffee (and a snowman cookie for a young 'un) and listened...
What separates me from them? Increasingly little. They were upper middle class and now scrounge for off the books manual labor. Would they be killed if they returned? Not immediately -- but slowly: no work, no food, no medicine, no hope. They've become #Refugees ...

The demand for #BogibeelBridge started in early 1960s. Even the Chinese aggression couldn't wake successive #Congress govts to move an inch towards realising people's dream of a much needed bridge.
People struggled for decades, students fought with successive Congress govts but they wont blink. Ultimately, it took the might of #AssamAgitation to take note of #BogibeelBridge demand.
1985: #Assam Accord was signed whereby #BogibeelBridge was committed by #Congress government led by then Prime Minister late #RajivGandhi. A demand - among many others - that was acknowledged after martyrdom of 855 young students of #Assam

#SupremeCourt questions Govt and CVC in #CBIvsCBI: "Why not be completely fair? What's the difficulty in consulting the Selection Committee? It is better to consult the Selection Committee than not to consult."
#CBIvsCBI: "The essence of every government action is what's the best for administration. It is not only a question of adherence to law but better adherence to law," #CJI tells Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.
#CBIvsCBI: The Court adds even if exigencies occur, is it not advisable to go to the Committee at some stage? "This hasn't happened overnight and the AG said this yesterday. If the Govt and CVC tolerated this since July, then why not go to the Selection Committee?"asks SC.

Since many people question the contribution of RSS /Hindutva ideology towards India's freedom struggle...

I am writing this #RightFactsThread

Let's start:

1. Contribution of Congress Vs that of Hindutva in

#IndianFreedomMovement

1/n
Congress origin was to maintain status-Quo of British policies, also to act as a safety valve..to prevent a repeat of 1857

Hindutva came up as Tilak, Aurobindo, thought "Hindu mythology" vl help mobilisation of people & achievements of Vedic civilization vl instill pride

2/n
While Britishers were claiming their aim was 'civilising mission"

Congress (Nehruvians) adopted the #SuitBoot Culture surrendering to prayers& petition politics

While Hindutva says we knew Democracy, Republican ideas from times of Lichchhavis, Yaudheyas, Vaishali..

1. Parity in Talks viz-a-viz Congress in Round table confs

Please take the time to read: The Five-Year-Old Who Was Detained at the Border and Persuaded to Sign Away Her Rights, by Sarah Stillman - a few thoughts from me to follow... newyorker.com/news/news-desk… via @NewYorker
The first thing to note is that the separation from a child from her grandmother upon arrival to the U.S. is that it appears to have taken place after the president supposedly ordered the forceful separations stopped...
A second thing to note is that the implementation of these separation policies requires the joint cooperation of both DHS & HHS - Secretaries Nielsen and Azar at the top, and the many deputies who work under their chain of command...

In which RVS Mani tells me how he was tortured by Congress era fabricators of 'Saffron Terror' myth. And I point out that #BJP has a reward system for these myth-makers -- eg, @RajKSinghIndia who helped fabricate the 'Saffron Terror' fiction. #PondyLitFest
Here is @RajKSinghIndia brazenly selling the 'Saffron Terror' 'Hindu Terror' lie to media. This was *after* #Congress had retracted its fiction. He now sits as a Minister in #BJP Government.
It was distressing listening to Sadhvi Pragya recount her harrowing, degrading experience while in ATS custody. @vijayvaani and I had organised a march (KPS Gill joined us) to NHRC on Nov 22, 2008. On the basis of our petition, NHRC sought a full report.

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread ✔
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

2/
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.
