You may have seen the Ontario PCs spamming links to The Hamilton Independent.

So I asked the question, what is this new “news org” and after doing extensive research I have found the following EXPLOSIVE…. 1/

Just kidding, took two seconds and a single google search to find their connections to Jeff Ballingal and Canada/Ontario Proud. #CdnMediaFailed

HI is a fake news source basically putting out articles to benefit Canada/Ontario Proud and Jeff Ballingals clients (CPC & PCPO) 2/ ImageImage
The Hamilton Independent is also tied to The Niagara Independent, another fake news site. #CdnMediaFailed 3/

Feels like corruption and press freedom in the multipolar world are under-reported topics. Shall we do a few tweets on the topic today? 🤔

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

📢 Thread: RBI Withdraws ₹2000 Banknotes, Here's What You Need to Know! 💵🏦
👉RBI is withdrawing ₹2000 banknotes introduced in 2016 after demonetization. These notes will still be legal tender, but their usage has decreased, so RBI wants to replace them with other denominations. #RBI #CurrencyWithdrawal
👉The decision is part of RBI's "Clean Note Policy" to ensure good quality banknotes in circulation. You can still use ₹2000 notes for transactions, but it's better to deposit or exchange them by September 30, 2023. Banks will help with the process. #CleanNotePolicy

1/ The head of @FIIA_fi, @MikaAaltola, warns that in the long run, #Russia will try to turn #Finland into a ”different and special” #NATO member, something between #Hungary and #Norway.

This is noteworthy as there is a cabinet formation process going on in Helsinki.

2/ In Hungary, Russia used three important tools to increase her influence, eventually enabling Orbán’s autocratization:

1) Demoralization in front of the totalitarian heritage (inadequate #lustration)
2) Corrupt networks of the ancien regime
3) Organized crime with Russian ties Image
3/ While Finland was never a communist dictatorship, all the elements above were present in the country after the Cold War.

#Finlandization turned into #PostFinlandization, protecting local #KGB-connected elites. Staying outside #NATO made the problem even more dangerous. Image

There are over a dozen forms of public sector corruption recorded & monitored globally, yet only few of them seem to be talked about.

Corruption isn't just a far-off concept—it's a reality that affects us all.

In this thread, I'll explore the most common forms 1/11. #Corruption Image
💰💼 Corruption can be financial or non-financial, direct or indirect.

Financial corruption involves the misuse of public power for private gain, often involving money.

Non-financial corruption doesn't always involve money but can still have severe impacts. 2/11 #Types
Examples of financial corruption include bribery, embezzlement, fraud, & extortion.

Non-financial corruption can take the form of favoritism, cronyism, patronage, nepotism & abuse of state organs.

Mistakenly, ppl think this is the worst type due to the financial loss. 3/11

“Free and Fair Elections

#Ukraine's president is directly elected by the people, while the country's lawmakers are elected in both single-seat constituencies and through proportional representation.
The legislature chooses the prime minister by majority vote, and the president appoints members of the supreme court after they have been nominated by the Supreme Council of Justice.

1/3 Energy giants BP and Equinor agreed to press ahead with plans for £1.5bn development in #Teesside #Freeport after demanding a guarantee they are not becoming involved in a project marred by corruption.

#Houchen #corruption…
2/3 "Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, who is running the #Teesworks project, confirmed that a “bespoke clause” was inserted into their legal agreement, at the request of the two energy firms."
3/3 “BP and Equinor wanted assurances, given the noise they were hearing,” he (Houchen) told The Yorkshire Post. “We were able to provide those assurances and they signed the deal last week. Now they’re investing north of £1.5bn on this site. If anything, it exonerates us.”

Hello and welcome to Azad Kashmir Anar Ul Haq's coalition government has decided  to amend the law to raise the number of  ministers from 16 to 26 at the  expense of people's wellbeing in  order to ensure that his rule  is not threatened. 1/3
What's Interesting  is that a bill seeking the renaming  and restructuring of  the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Cell  (JKLC) has been lying with the  government  for months but has yet to be  introduced in the assembly. Kashmiris can keep dying, but  their interests must come first.
This is the reality of Azad Kashmir's ruling elite.

Missouri farmers were sold out by lobbyists like this. #WeThePeople are DONE with lobbyists paid for politicians like these. Thank you to @SCooperGG for listing the groups we need to target with boycotts to stop corruption & keep poison out of our food supply. #HB1169 did NOTHING……
Yesterday the lobbyists from Missouri Cattlemen and elsewhere threatened all the politicians on the committee. Said they would end their careers if they voted against #HB1169. THIS is the problem in DC & our state capitals. The LOBBYISTS are controlling the politicians. We need……
We also need to thank the individuals that stood against the pressure from the Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri Cattlemen’s Association and others. Thank Holly Jones, Bill Hardwick, & the others that had the courage to do what was right over what was easy.

The dust seems to have settled down. I am referring to the discussion around the #BJP-#AIADMK 2024 poll alliance. Ever since reports of Annamalai’s intention to go alone in 2024 came out and subsequent contradicting statements from some senior BJP leaders, [1/7] 2024 is going to be a significant year in TN politics, this
everyone seems to have understood what Annamalai is thinking. After his meeting with HM in Delhi, he seems to be more assertive and confident. The seniors in the party also seem to have got the message. This is what happens with a strong leader.[2/7]
The questions from #media, statements from #AIADMK leaders, #Twitter trolls, etc. seem to have toned down. AIADMK seems to be on the defensive. the new leader still seems unsure of himself. There is a sense of artificial camaraderie in the AIADMK camp.[3/7]

#SouthAfrica: Today the finance minister went back on the decision to exempt #Eskom from reporting expense regularities and the electricity minister lifted the state of disaster declared two months to deal with #loadshedding. These developments are good, but--
--it's alarming that they were made in the first place, because the first was an attempt to cover up the #corruption that we know to have occurred and the second would've simply opened the door to further corruption.
Then, to see government flip flopping on decisions is never a good sign, primarily because it signals a lack of decisive leadership with a vision. What was the plan? Was there a plan? And what was the end goal? Surely only something nefarious.
