We need to take care of people so that they can take care of the transition to a climate safe society. #GreenNewDeal
How's a populace struggling under the weight of covid losses, long covid, loss of bodily autonomy of half of the people, worried about their trans kids and neighbors, searching for infant formula, etc etc supposed to pull off the fast industrial transition in history?
*fastest - lol there I go angry typo-ing again

Last night we disrupted @pritipatel because her #Rwandaplan is cruel, morally bankrupt & it will cost lives.

We demand the Government drops this widely condemned policy & provides support for people seeking safety.

No matter where we come from, we all deserve dignity & respect
We’re sickened to see the Gov ramping up its hostile policies rather than helping those fleeing from war, poverty & extreme weather.

As climate change displaces entire communities, leaving people vulnerable to exploitation & violence, we MUST act with compassion.
And as a country with a long history of exploiting people and resources, the UK must recognise its responsibility.

We call on the Government to provide an accessible & decent system for people seeking refuge, to drastically cut emissions and to pay its dues! #GreenNewDeal

For #WorldBookDay2022, we are highlighting some of the fantastic books from our Roosevelt team. Happy reading!📚
.@rgunns chapter in @sunrisemvmt's “Winning The Green New Deal: Why We Must, How We Can” brilliantly explains the greatest strength of the #GreenNewDeal: its vision for transforming our economy and society. indiebound.org/book/978198214…
In “Freedom from the Market: America's Fight to Liberate Itself from the Grip of the Invisible Hand,” @rortybomb clearly shows how relying on the free market to run our lives ends up limiting—not expanding—our freedom. indiebound.org/book/978162097…

THREAD: @ninaturner lost by a little over 4K votes in special election in dead of summer w/ low turnout & massive Super PAC $$ against her. For reference, @CoriBush lost 2018 primary by nearly 30K votes & then beat same opponent 2 years later by over 4K
@ninaturner @CoriBush People can vote however they want or support Turner or not. But the defeatist attitude of not supporting her because she is running as a Democrat (Green Party not on ballot, she'd lost by 40-50 in this solid blue district if she skipped primary and ran as independent) bc..
@ninaturner @CoriBush The Squad has let you down or Bernie has let you down might be good for YT clicks but, in reality, is going to keep progressives forever in the minority. Whether it's Nina Turner or anyone else, where the oligarchy wants us mentally is to CHECK OUT and be defeatist...

After today's #SpringStatement and the breathtaking failure to deal with the living standards crisis, many of my constituents and millions around our country will be not merely be forced to make a choice between eating and heating. They're going to be priced out of doing either.
THREAD
But this isn’t a crisis that started with today’s #springstatement Nor did it start with the invasion of Ukraine or the 2008 banking crash or the decade of austerity that followed. Instead, it started in 1979.
This is when the Thatcherite economic ‘revolution’ began. An political/economic system that has dominated for 50 years. One that even now dominates the limits of what our MSM will concede is possible.

Our panel of three environmental activists at #GPC22 is starting now👇
We kick off with @lilyfitzg2 - one of the founders of @bristolYS4C and Bristol's youngest councillor - who lays out the work of the Bristol climate strikers throughout 2019 - from focusing on airport expansion to calling for general strikes
@lilyfitzg2 @bristolYS4C The climate strikers then organised around Bristol-specific demands:
1. #GreenNewDeal for Bristol
2. A 2-term limit for mayors to achieve carbon neutrality
3. Get Bristol's #airpollution to/below legal limit
4. Free bus travel for under 21s
5. Pedestrianising some city roads

President Joe Biden laid out a vision to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis that have challenged working families across the country. ⬇️
If our federal government can come together to adopt progressive policies that prioritize working families over corporations…
⬇️
there is a path forward that allows us to emerge from this period of collective struggle as a healthier, more equitable, and more compassionate society than we have ever been before.

There’s an emerging right wing narrative that somehow @POTUS energy policy is the real culprit on #Ukraine. It’s absurd but nonetheless having to refute absurdity is where we’re at in 2022, so let’s dig in. 🧵
The argument goes like this, Trump had a policy of “energy independence” and Biden is ending that which means that now since Russia exports oil and gas, we’re now strengthening them and Putin. Again, this is absurd in multiple ways. 2/
Let’s start with the fundamental truth that Trump’s energy policy was to double down on fossil fuels and undermine global efforts for a green transition. This isn’t “energy independence” it’s preservation of a global fossil fuel industry that empowers Russia. 3/

1/3. 2013: Tony Blair is Godfather to Murdoch's daughter. Israel has stolen the oil rich Golan Heights and granted Rupert Murdoch's Genie Energy the first and ONLY license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan Heights #StarmerOut #GreenNewDeal businessinsider.com/israel-grants-…
2/3. Murdoch’s close relationship with PM Tony Blair and their secret meetings to discuss national policies became an issue in Britain.

Rupert Murdoch and his longtime pal Lord Jacob Rothschild are major shareholders in Genie Oil and Gas, Inc. #StarmerOut counterpunch.org/2015/03/27/rup…
3/3. Remember how one of the top donors to @Keir_Starmer's leadership campaign was leading UK Israel lobbyist Sir Trevor Chinn? (£50,000 hidden)

Here he is (left) posing with Tony and Jacob. This photo has now been deleted by Israel lobby group the UJIA: electronicintifada.net/blogs/asa-wins…

It wasn’t a liberal who announced the Iraq war and New World Order led by a credible United Nations or Emergency Use Authorization or incentivized lockdowns. That was #Conservative #Republican #GOP @GOP #Bush was in #Dallas at #JFK assassination. #Cuba Father of the #CIA
#building7 #WTC23 collapsing without being hit gave Bush JR what he needed a war on terror. It was JR who made Emergency Use Authorization and facial recognition law realID. Everyone knows “Homeland” connection to Hitler. Nazis introduced the term “homeland” at their first rally.
That rally was at Nuremberg where doctors scientists & media would be executed for manipulating and forcing #Jews into medical experimentation. This is where #InformedConsent comes from. All #COVID19 #vaccines are experimental.

Tomorrow is a huge day for environmental justice. I'll eagerly vote YES on @STAND_LA legislation that will phase out oil and gas extraction & storage in LA.

I'm proud to be one of its first supporters -- and I salute the relentless grassroots advocates who made it happen.
Since 2014, neighbors and advocates have been demanding “no drilling where we’re living” and calling for an end to the urban oil fields that have caused air pollution disproportionately affecting predominantly Latino and Black neighborhoods for generations.
What started as a longshot effort to create a buffer zone between oil drilling and homes has become broad, landmark legislation that begins the process of getting the dirty fossil fuel industry out of neighborhoods and our city.

Vote Green Party if you want an actual challenge from the Left.

Here's why (a thread)...
google.com/amp/s/www.poli…
The Green Party is already left. No pushing or negotiations necessary.

Bernie ran on most of the policies that GP already incorporated into their platform.

gp.org/platform
The Green Party already has the necessary infrastructure to run, and is a registered Party in every state.

They're the fourth largest US Party overall, and the largest in the nation among parties that reject corporate funding.

Pretend you understand #MMT(Modern Monetary Theory) and look down at your child, knowing we have literally no time left to substantively reduce our carbon footprint and little time to stave off some of the more deleterious effects of climate change heading towards us. 1/x
You know that Congress and other sovereign currency issuing nations can simply spend what must be spent to save us all from disaster. Raising taxes isn't required to "fund* these efforts. Just political will and an informed, economically literate populous.
Now... pretend that the major parties are both corrupt and 3rd parties are steeped in economic illiteracy that edges up on at worst criminal negligence and the very least incompetence.

What do you do?

Now stop pretending.

That is what we are facing today.

The Federal Reserve and the US Treasury have a consolidated Balance Sheet.

Let that sink in if you still think the Fed is private.

1/x
The Fed remits ALL profits back to the Treasury MINUS operating expenses.

When Congress writes and passes a bill, the Fed makes deposits from thin air to the Treasury's accounts to make payments. On demand. Out of thin air.
Congress created the Federal Reserve in 1913. Period.

Article 1 Section 8 gives Congress the sole authority to power of the nations purse.

Getting a lot of media requests to comment on the NDP grassroots Wet'suwet'en solidarity statement.

The story is getting framed in predictable/sensationalist ways, so I'll say what I have to say in this thread.
The story is not about a conflict in the NDP, or attacks on leaders (much as those headlines get clicks.)

This is a story about the conflict created by unneeded fossil fuel projects that are dividing communities and COOKING THE PLANET.
In BC, we are reeling from fires (made worse by shitty logging practices) and heat (that killed 600 people) and floods (made worse by the fires) causing TENS OF BILLIONS in damage, lives and livestock and livelihoods swept away.

Climate breakdown. It's here. It's terrifying.

Right now I’m in a battle for the future of independent politics and I need your help.

Go to jillstein.net to learn about our fight to ensure independents and alternative parties can get on the ballot, challenge the ruling elites and build real democracy!
We're fighting an FEC decision that limits independents’ and alternative parties’ use of public matching funds to get on the ballot. The FEC is demanding our 2016 campaign repay $175K in public matching funds we used to complete ballot drives - over 5 years ago!
The FEC is now refusing, after the fact, to recognize our use of matching funds for ballot drives during the 2016 primary. With our 2016 campaign account all but closed, the FEC is attempting to hold me, as the candidate, liable for repaying $175K from my own retirement funds.

I made this Facebook post a few years back and it still holds true. 1/x

I saw a disturbing comment from someone I don't believe I ever interacted with in my life. Their comment moved me so much I believe I am going to write a series of articles about it.

🧵🪡🪢
Let me start with the following:

1. For 40 plus years, the neoliberal era has reigned.
During that time, people have had little by way of resistance from the lies, deceit and self imposed prisons of ineffectual domestic governance and austerity.
2. The lies were baked into the school system, newspapers, sit comms, political debates even cartoons took the ideas of neoliberalism into the hearts and minds of our children...the people.
