#Romania Prez @KlausIohannis hit w/ #Brexit q at @MunSecConf, first looked like he wanted to die. Shifted in seat. Took deep breath. & then totally killed it. Hit all #EU talking points- Regret for #UK vote; unity of 27; Withdrawal Treaty best possible deal; Brits' indecision 1/
"We found a good agreement.I consider it a very good agreement. We approved it," he said. "So now we are in the phase where we are waiting for the British approval. Well, here things became more complicated as we all know. There are a number of discussions in their Parliament 2/
"a number of approaches & people always ask: is this going to end with an orderly withdrawal & good future relationship or is this going to end with a no deal Brexit ... Well, frankly, nobody has an answer now about how the leaving is going to happen in the end ..." 3/

..on the biggest and baddest lobbyists in EU town

..the huge influence they have on EU lawmaking

..and how many represent interests from outside the EU.

According to Transparency International @TI_EU, the lobby organisation that has held the most high-level meetings at the European Commission between 2014 and 2018 is @BusinessEurope.

"BusinessEurope?!?" you ask.

@TI_EU @BusinessEurope It is hardly surprising that the vast majority of people have never heard of BusinessEurope.

There is a worrying media blackout about how a complex network of organisations lobby the #EU on behalf of the world largest corporations.

.@Maryam_Rajavi: The question is why have they recognized a regime in #Iran which has invaded & occupied the country, which rules by torture and execution, which plunders Iran’s assets.
@Exodus2019 @NYCREMilton @Sundncefn @bobbr177 @Thom_Thom9
Maryam Rajavi: In addition to the U.S., the @EUCouncil has also imposed sanctions on the clerical regime to counter its terrorism & belligerence. But this is not enough.They must stand up more decisively to this regime.
@winegirl73 @DebraMMason1 @PatriciaBride @KathaleenHarpe9
From the #EU states who have set up a Financial Mechanism for the Iran regime, we ask:
Why haven’t they found any mechanism over the years to save political prisoners suffering under savage tortures of Khamenei’s henchmen?

/1 Another article questions the new sanctions by the #EU & #US against the regime in #Syria as well as its affiliated businessmen. It is stated that the sanctions continue to aggravate the suffering of the ordinary population, which contributes to…
/2 strengthening the regime instead of weakening it. I have to ask a few questions, which are always up for discussion. The author claims at the beginning of the article that outrage alone cant be a policy from which to expect any useful results.
/3 Its clear that to execute these sanctions across all sectors, without a formulation of a real political vision, is a breeding ground for the propaganda of the regime. In this thread, I have also made aware of it.

After 50 years of voting for the Conservative Party, I will, unless Brexit is delivered fully, resign my membership & cast my vote in favour of his new Brexit Party…
If only to keep any “heat” on European Council’s charming President, Donald Tusk!

Surprised Sir Oliver Letwin says he didn't believe in his party’s 2017 manifesto “No Deal is better than a Bad Deal"
Sir Oliver should remember whole of Dorset, not just his constituency, backed Leaving #EU & prefers No Deal to May’s wishy-washy plan.
Rethink, Sir Oliver!
Don’t remember anyone talking about “Deal” or “No Deal” when EU referendum was held.
Options were Leave or Remain & Leave won!
Had we left immediately after referendum, it would all be settled now.
Mrs May should tell the #EU we voted to Leave & that’s what we are doing!

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.

What the hell is @jeremycorbyn doing?
Why is he enabling #Tory #Brexit?
Is this the final betrayal?
No, it isn't.
It's the predicted effect of decisions taken 2-3 years ago. All things considered, it's not as bad as it could have been (thanks to #StopBrexit crowd).

To understand why, I need to outline 2 important mechanisms that most people, politicians and commentators seem to ignore, dismiss or simply don't get. They have different and somewhat opposite consequences, but are both decisive in the current & foreseeable predicaments.
1st and foremost: the biggest constraint that applies to political decision-making comes from the past decisions & policies.
It is a massive constraint.
Cameron COULD NOT convincingly campaign for #Remain, because his own policies CREATED the discontent channelled by #Leave.

We are aware of the comments by the Governor of #Kaduna about non-interference by foreigners during a talk show on #NigeriaDecides2019 on 5/2/19. The #EU only deploys an election observation mission when it is invited to do so by the authorities of a country.
The EU has been invited to observe all of the general elections in #Nigeria since 1999. Thus this is the sixth time the EU is observing elections in Nigeria. @inecnigeria invited the EU to deploy an observation mission for @NigeriaDecides2019
EU election observation missions give commentary and analysis, and make recommendations about the electoral process. EU election observation missions are impartial, do not interfere in the electoral process, and operate according to a strict code of conduct.

Now I know why the #GiletsJaunes movement dropped from 280.000 to 140.000 now to below 100.000, because #Antifa scum are causing riots vandalism and fear. The black block in the #EU is the worst mob of them all. Germany's black block is the worst of them all in the EU...
#Update: Here is a Footage in #Paris what show alleged #Antifa thugs trying to rip of construction material of a site, when the other peaceful #GiletsJaunes protestors wanted to stop them and attack them afterwards by throwing rocks and construction material on #ActeXI.
Going to do some more digging to find footages of #Antifa attacking #GiletsJaunes protestors in #France! Here is another one that i got from last #ActeXII protest in #Paris.

As you all know #deflation has been my theme for some time. It is obvious looking at charts like #Copper and #Oil. Here is #Oil. Ending Diagonal which will send Oil <23 USD during 2019/2020. This has been my call since top in 2018. It is >70% drop --> deflationary #HZupdates
#Copper shows same picture. #Deflation is coming. We are in wave 5 of C in expanding diagonal. Current bounce is wave 2 - will rally slightly higher - before major drop. I imagine this is what Powell starts getting indications on #HZupdates
Notice 2008 Q1-Q3 - during last deflationary phase. Fed had been tightening up to Sept. 2007 - and started lowering rates. BUT damage had been done to economy. World rolled over and #deflation /disinflation. It was from Q1-Q3 2008. #Copper plunged. Same situation now! #HZupdates

1/ This week I took a phone call where someone asked me, in earnest, "I'm interested to know what do you do when you're not on the streets protesting?"

Given that I have spent nearly every waking moment of every day for the last 2 and a half years thinking about #StopBrexit...
2/ and campaigning to promote the EU - I thought it might be worth writing a list of everything that "being an activist" involves. (Not because I feel like I need to justify myself to critics but because it might be interesting for people to know the work #EUsupergirl does)...
3/ I have also spent a huge amount of time travelling (and sorting all the expense forms) to get to events and protests across the UK & EU. And these are the places i've been to campaigning to #StopBrexit or to promote the #EU. (Sorry anywhere I have forgotten -it's a long list!)

Today (#2Feb) is once again a huge day in #Venezuela 🇻🇪 as thousands will once again go out in cities across the country to demand the downfall of #Maduro and the full restoration of democracy.
#Venezuela 🇻🇪: these are the streets of #Vzla this morning. Across the country thousands are going out to reject #Maduro. #2Feb #VenezuelaEnLaCalle

Interest/sickening article on #nbcnews re: #Venezuela. Full of very revealing quotes. This #coup has not gone as planned. Thread.

Firstly, they admit it was a #US plan, so all those apologists talking about this being a grass-roots movement from #Venezuela should probably stop. This has nothing to do with the Venezuela constitution, and everything to do with oil and regional power. 2/6
Second, it's been obvious for a while that the #US blew their wad on #Guiado, expecting the military to take his side. When they sided with #Maduro the plans totally stalled. The plan was to install him, and declare him as "official" in the hopes of quelling int'l objections. 3/7

“I came to the issue of vexatious defamation suits including #SLAPPs following the assassination of #DaphneCaruanaGalizia when we noticed the disappearance of news stories about #Pilatus bank - which she was investigating - from news websites in Malta,”
Many news outlets, threatened with potentially ruinous vexatious lawsuits by Pilatus through their London law firms, had removed this content.
The practice of #SLAPPs circumvents due legal process and effectively silences media reporting where the client has enough money to pay London law firms to make these threats. It fundamentally undermines any right to a fair trial.

The German government on Wednesday nearly halved its 2019 economic growth forecast from 1.8% to 1%, citing #Brexit as the first among key reasons for the slowdown. The shock of no-deal Brexit is widely expected to cause a recession here and elsewhere.
The German minister for econ affairs @peteraltmaier said today that it is not really possible to prepare for a no-deal #Brexit in some sectors, also due to currency fluctuations etc
So the idea that the #EU is united in some sort of stoic view on no-deal #Brexit as highly manageable is not correct. In fact Chancellor #Merkel has spoken to Ireland's Varadkar about his intentions. Top politicians/officials here say it would be good if Ireland would reconsider

Do you remember this video of during the #Catalunya independent protests, during the voting referendum! Where Spanish police officers wounded 900 protestors and used extensive police force? The EU condemned Spain after 1 week, where is the #EU now for the French police violence?

1/ With all focus on Commons today, it’s again important to draw attention to #EU. Rarely have EU’s big-4 been confronted with such challenging domestic political situations, while also facing European-wide polls. EU’s stance on #Brexit always needs to be understood in this light
2/ Italy represents perhaps best example of all key challenges facing EU (Euro; policy mix; migration; populism), how difficult they are to resolve and how they’ll interact w European elections in May. This is what senior officials in Bxl, Berlin, Paris etc. really fret about
3/ Rightly so. @FSanti_
Coalition will remain inherently unstable, but probs here to stay;
Euro/fiscal risks haven’t disappeared, just kicked to new College;
Salvini probs biggest winner in European elex; League has very good chance of leading enlarged far-right group in new EP

🤔Interesting. Lots to bring out to keep this very sick, habitual criminal, in the public👀...
2) This was out prior to the #2018Midterms. Records confirm @llhanMN married her own brother in '09. She's guilty of possible(?) #ImmigrationFraud & #StudentLoan fraud!
Aaand, in the name of #PC she's allowed to bring her extremist views & abhorrent life style to #Congress [ ? ]
3) What's happened to this country is more than sad, change is needed or it will go the route of the #EU & 3rd world nations before. Revelations like these are the fodder for real investigations. @llhanMN's removal for her criminal actions is a must!…
