Offenbar ist beim Tagesspiegel Redaktion derart ausgedünnt, dass Quellen nicht mehr geprüft werden. Text von #Indymedia, der auf Italienisch erschienen ist, anschließend ins Griechische und von da auf Deutsch übersetzt wurde, ohne Einordnung als Grundlage für Artikel: ernsthaft?
„Lüge“ & „Hetze“ sind nicht meine Worte. @LorenzMaroldt, Sie wollen wissen was Problem am Text ist? Gut
1. Sie nehmen eine Debate aus dem italienischen Kontext, ohne dies zu benennen und suggerieren, dass es Position der hiesigen radikalen Link ist
2. Position wird nicht eingeordnet. Es handelt sich um Text aus dem insurrektionistischen Spektrum. Das sind weder die Autonomen, noch weniger ist es die radikale Linke. Positionen können etwa im, auch von deutschen Feuilleton diskutieren, Unsichtbaren Komitee nachgelesen werden

Lets talk about #Global #CentralBanks and their #MonetaryPolicy stances given #COVID19. Specifically, lets ask ourselves: "Can Central Banks Help Fight COVID-19?"
The best place to start is to note that #Global #Growth was already facing considerable downside risks before the #COVID19 outbreak December 2019. The slow down in global growth came on the back of trade (china vs. us) and geopolitical (Brexit etc.) tensions...
To this end, institutions such as the #IMF & #WorldBank revised down their 2020 #Economic #Growth outlook & emphasised the need for a more coordinated #policy approach between #monetary & #fiscal policy around the globe to "rescue" growth from the doldrums...

Das Bundesamt und die Landesämter für #Verfassungsschutz gelten in Regierungsäußerungen und Öffentlichkeit als zentrale Werkzeuge im Kampf gegen den Faschismus. Sie sind nicht dafür geeignet und müssen ersetzt werden. Thread 1/28
Es geht wohlgemerkt nicht primär um dad praktische Problem, dass dort stockkonservative bis stramm rechte Law&Order-Fetischisten (i.d.R. korrekt gegendert) arbeiten (bis hinauf zum ehemaligen Chef des Bundesamts, dem rechten Hetzer und Verschwörungstheoretiker #Maaßen). 2/28
Vielmehr müssen Aufgabendefinition und Arbeitsweise dieser Dienste unter die Lupe genommen werden. Es heißt in ihren Verlautbarungen stets, sie bekämpfen die drei Bereiche Rechtsextremismus, Linksextremismus und Islamismus. Schauen wir uns die einzeln an. 3/28

As #Australia reels from unprecedented bushfires, the disconnect between its vulnerability to #climate change and the inadequacy of its government's response is coming under international scrutiny.
We have produced a mountain of research on this -
👇👇 thread👇👇
1/ #Australia is on fire due in large part to #climate change yet the government is looking for ways to weaken the Paris Agreement by using 40 y. o. Kyoto protocol credits to meet its 2030 targets. We show there's no legal basis for this @TheAusInstitute
2/ Our calculations show just how bad using Kyoto carryover units to meet #ParisAgreement commitments would be for #climate action: an extra 0.1˚C of warming that wld not otherwise hv occurred due to delays in energy & economic system transformation

The last few days of #US military build up make a lot of sense now. The killing of #Iran Quds Force commander Suleimani cannot be overstated as an escalatory event, even if US will have intended it as ultimate show of force.
Suleimani was the most visible face of Iran’s fight against #IslamicState and US in the region. A huge loss of knowledge and expertise for IRGC and humiliating for #Khamenei after his tweet taunting #Trump. The question now must be what an Iranian response will be.
Iran can not afford not to respond to this level of attack, but does not necessarily have to respond immediately. They will understand how vulnerable Trump is going into the electoral period. US military and energy assets across #Iraq are at high risk of rocket and mortar attack.

It’s that time of the year when we look back on how India charted new pathways in #Diplomacy and left an imprint on the global agenda.
The year began with the 10th #IndiaJapan Strategic Dialogue, which provided a platform for blossoming of deep rooted ties into a special strategic & global partnership
The then Japanese Foreign Minister @konotaromp attended the summit along with the former EAM Smt. Sushma Swaraj
@konotaromp @MofaJapan_en @IndianEmbTokyo @PIB_India A World Reorder: New Geometries; Fluid Partnerships; Uncertain Outcomes.
The 4th edition of @raisinadialogue, a flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference, was organised by @orfonline and @MEAIndia

1️⃣ The writer and many commentators can be described in a very appropriate way, that they are backward and barbaric as well. The fact that their ideas express wishes for failure to a young leader who has been able to defeat all their aggressive campaigns.
2️⃣ You can imagine that the most ferocious and aggressive campaign in recent history included states, heads of state, governments, writers, journalists, tv channels, social media, research centers, war and terrorist attacks, yet he succeeded, always calm and smiling.
3️⃣ The overwhelming desire of this broad spectrum to overthrow the Saudi crown prince expresses only one thing, that he’s the best ever. If these barbarians backwoods were honest in one case, they could easily overthrow him, and that made them continue to shout hysterically.

Hard factual headlines will follow this one:

"Tories have maxed up UK state debt by 2.5 times in just 9 and half years!" This is unprecedented in peacetime!

"Despite #Tory #Lies to the contrary? UK #economy is flat on its back, and likely to fall further - GDP was just 0.1% in the 6 months to 30sep19 being our worst showing since the financial crash!"

GDP(Gross Domestic Product) = total output of UK #economy, on which vital tax-take depends. HMG needs our tax (from companies, employees, householders) to fund OUR public services. Flat GDP growth (low % uplift) means less capability to fund services on which we depend!

Just days away from a #GE2019 which will shape UK for many generations to come!

Some incontrovertible facts:

1/ UK GDP% growth has stalled, at just 0.1% over the 6 months to 30sep19 (so, virtually flat-lining). This is the worst 1/2 year performance since the financial crash.
2/ Three plus years on from the disastrous #EURef, we now KNOW that destabilising Russian influence/cash was a material factor in driving the #Leave Vote. So, #RussiaReport MUST be released BEFORE we vote again in #GE2019.
3/ Russian agents also freely KILL (when directed & funded to do so) on the streets of Britain, so let's not readily 'pooh pooh' their ambition & reach to destabilise both the #UK & #EU.

Es folgt eine Auswahl #bestof aus dem gerade erschienenen #Verfassungsschutz-Bericht 2018 für #Thüringen (grundsätzliche Kritik findet ihr hier:…) #thread
Thüringer Gericht stellt fest, dass man #Höcke "#Faschist" nennen darf, im #Verfassungsschutzbericht taucht #AfD nur als Opfer unter „Linksextremismus“ bei Sachbeschädigungen auf, während über 16 Angriffe (mehrheitlich PMK-rechts) auf LINKE Büros mit keiner Silbe erwähnt werden
#VS erklärt am Ende seines Berichts im Glossar, was neue 'Neue Rechte' bedeutet, versäumt es aber vollständig, im Bericht auch nur ein Wort zur Neuen Rechten 2018 zu erwähnen, obwohl diese bspw. auch bedeutsam für Aufstieg der #AfD in Thüringen und zur Landtagswahl 2019 ist

Trump says transcript of second Ukraine call will "probably" be released Tuesday
Trump wants to release the first call only because—unlike the second call—it doesn't contain anything incriminating, according to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. It's a distraction.
Why the change in tone? What happened in between the first and the second call with Zelenskyy? In early May, during a phone call, Putin “did what he always does” in seeking to undercut the United States’ relationship with Ukraine. Also, Trump spoke to Putin at the #G20 in June.

Another important day in #tax world and especially for @OECDtax.

#G20 Ministers should approve today last week's proposal by the OECD to reform international corporate tax rules.

Is this a revolution?

Check out this thread for a visual illustration of what is on the table!
The reform (who has the right to tax multinationals and where should that happen) has 3 steps (A, B and C). A being the major breakthrough. All companies with a certain turnover in a country even without physical presence have to allocate a part of their profits to that country.
How this step A looks like is the big question and it has been hard to visualize the reform and clearly indicate what still needs to be negotiated (cause a lot is still under discussion). I have tried to put it all in images and happy to hear comments and discuss #taxtwitter

#OpportunityCost is the aggregate net cost of doing something, vis a vis 'not doing it' at all.

The initial project, option & prospect of #Brexit came with huge opportunity costs, which were too easily pre-discounted as #ProjectFear. 1/
The initial #Leave case, dramatised by the #BorisBus, contended that UK could save its £350m pw #EU 'gross membership contribution' and pass that 'saving' straight to the #NHS - as 'additional funding'. 2/
The #Leave case focused on saving UK's #EU gross membership cost in favour of #NHS.

It ignored regular #EU annual contributions back into a multiplicity of UK projects, which would obviously be stopped, if we ceased membership.

5/16/19: URN Prosecutor Says No Evidence of Wrongdoing by Bidens—inv’n focused on Ukrainian

9/9/19: 3 House cmtes inv Trump, Giuliani pressure on URN to hurt Biden's campaign

9/18/19 WBC broke

9/19/19 Biden op broke = disinfo, sources = GRU/TeamTrump

Get it?

Anyone who ran with the Biden aspect re WBC was dupped by TeamTrump front-facing much worse scandals.

The Biden disinfo is not an ‘urgent’ NatSec issue, duh! It’s old news.

@nyt @washingtonpost @wsj @cnn @msnbc: You just aided GRU/Trump’s Biden smear campaign.

Biden aspect of the WBC disinfo — meant to smear Biden. RT hyped fake vid.

WBC may not be about URN, but cd re URN PP #Crimea #Sanctions

Did Trump pass doxxing info re US spies, Smolenkov & more key intel related to 2016 elex to Putin? #IO #Helsinki #G20 #G7

Let's talk about #BlackBloc, and why some antifascists wear masks.

"Antifa" are anyone who stand up against fascism, masked or otherwise. Black bloc and antifa are not interchangeable terms. Black bloc is not a group but a tactic some use, sometimes. #DefendPDX
Black bloc traditionally acts as the first line of defense against violent fascists and out of control cops. They're people who train and prepare to take the brunt of the violence so other people who can't can still feel safe coming to a protest.
Black bloc as a tactic was developed by autonomists in Europe, then came to the US during protests like the "Battle in Seattle" against the World Trade Organization in 1999.

(This is long before groups of Americans were using the term "antifa" to describe themselves.)

#Brésil🇧🇷| Le Président de la République @EmmanuelMacron, qui a eu l’occasion d’une première entrevue avec le Président @jairbolsonaro lors du
#G20 d’Osaka le mois dernier, m’a demandé de porter aujourd’hui un double message à notre partenaire brésilien. — @JY_LeDrian

1) D’abord celui de poursuivre l’approfondissement de notre partenariat stratégique.
#Brésil🇧🇷 @JY_LeDrian
• Je souhaite donc que ma venue permette de resserrer encore davantage les liens entre nos deux pays🇫🇷🇧🇷, dans les domaines économiques, commerciaux ,culturels, dans le respect des principes défendus par la France, au premier rang desquels le développement durable.

Any #Brexit would be a total #Catastrophuc for UK! Reasons will follow in this 12 part thread, to be developed over coming days. If you know of any NET benefits from #Brexit, please feed them in. They'd need to be good to match the >£1bn pw this mess is ALREADY costing US! 1/12.
Easiest one first! Full #EU membership (as NOW) gives the UK unrestricted tariff-free & frictionless trade access to an enlarged & well developed HOME market of 550+ million people in 27 fellow member states, being SO much MORE than our own UK of 4 much smaller parts. 2/12.
Brexiteers discount EU's relentless progress in terms of comprehensive trade deals with international markets. While UK has been a busy fool, chasing Brexit and getting nowhere! EU has signed Canada, Korea, Japan and (recently) Brazil & Argentina! All OURS to access NOW! 3/12.

السلام عليكم.

1️⃣ ترون كلام هذا البائس @Sabri_ali_oglu والذي يعبر بالضبط عن الانحطاط الأخلاقي والشعور بالنقص والكذب والخسة والدناءة والغطرسة اللامتناهية، والشعور الوهمي بالتفوق.

إنه في الحقيقة يعبر عن حالة التهتك والضعف والمهانة كذكر مخصي.

2️⃣ إما أن ذاكرته ذاكرة ذبابة، وإما أنه يعتصر ألماً من فشل مخططات بلده العدوانية تحت حكم البائس أردوغان ضد العرب.

لقد تعامل الأتراك طوال تاريخهم مع العرب وشعوب المنطقة بعدوانية منقطعة النظير لا لشيء إلا بسبب الغيرة والأحقاد.

3️⃣ حارب العربُ الأتراكَ ولم يستقر للأتراك سلطان على الجزيرة العربية طوال حكم العثمانيين البائد، ولم يمكنهم سوى وضع حاميات عسكرية هنا وهناك، بينما قبورهم شاخصة حتى اليوم في أرجاء #المملكة_العربية_السعودية.
