1/ The Democrat Political Playbook for Civil War—a Heritage of Hate, Racism, Terror and Hypocrisy

If you search the following events for yourself, you will find that we are reliving a Political Playbook when the Democrat Party weaponize racism to wage political war.
2/ Rhetorical incitement, race-bating, terror, looting, rioting, impeachments, RINO insurgents, guerrilla-style one-on-one crime tactics—you name it, they’ve done it.

A look at what the Democrat Party has in store for us all if we don’t unite & DEMAND an emergency election.
3/ The Democrats Civil War playbook weaponized racism and political insurrection. Even burning, looting & riots were a feature of the radical Democrat’s campaign of intimidation in places like Baltimore. In the history of Ancient Rome, this was referred to as ‘sacking.’

#Agenda21 is #Global #Communism

Wake Up & Resist

Deny #Marxists at every turn
They are not your friends
At best,they are #UsefulIdiots
At worst..
They are purposefully helping #Globalism install dictatorial #government & eroding our rights as FREE people.
Don’t let them!

#Agenda21 is the biggest public relations #SCAM in the #History of the #World
But it is far more then that its the agenda for the 21st century and it’s a recepy for #destruction it enables and justifies monitoring and metering and restricting our #energy & #water usage!

#Agenda21 is #Global #Communism

#Communitarism says that it’s all for the common good,that the individuals right need to be balanced with the rights of the #community
Now we don’t know what these rights are they can change them at any time!
The individual loses!

Day 2 of #TurkeyJewishRoadtrip:

On the road from Bursa to Çeşme

While on road lets talk😊

Did you know that #Turkey is an important source of #Kosher food? Hundreds of manufacturers all over the country produce anything from raw material to ready to eat products.
By the way: Kosher food does not mean food that is blessed by a rabbi!

Rather it is food that has been prepared according to Jewish law - there are no mixtures of meat/milk, it is insect free, meat or chicken have to be prepared properly according to Jewish law and more...
The Turkish Jewish community @tyahuditoplumu through @DenetGida which certifies hundreds of plants, as well as the @OrthodoxUnion and @OKKosher have their field representatives inspect plants to assure they are fit for the kosher consumer.

#Thread on Raja Prithviraj I Kachwaha of Amer/Amber kingdom - who fought for Hindus against Mughals.

#Hindutva #Rajput #History
1503 CE: Prithviraj Kachwaha ascended the throne of Amer. His reign was marked by stability and progress for the Jaipur kingdom.
During his reign, he cultivated marital alliances with many neighbouring Rajput states. This contributed to making Amber a major regional political player.

Even the sister of Maharana Sanga was married to Prithviraj Kachwaha, thereby uniting with Mewar under Hindu banner!

Long thread: Connections between #Tamil and #Portuguese
When we land in a new country, we generally ask how they say ‘Thank you’ or ‘good morning’ in their language. When we landed in Lisbon, we asked the cab driver: “How do you call a window in Portuguese?” He said, “Janela”.
The emergency windows in Portugal read as ‘Janela de Emergencia’. We continued, “How do you call table in Portuguese?” He said, “Mejai”. We didn’t stop. “How do you call a ‘key’?” “Shavi”, he helped us in the pronunciation. #tamil #Portuguese
Many roof top restaurants in Lisbon are named as “Varanda de Lisboa” (Balcony of Lisbon). Many of us who speak Tamil might have thought Jannal, Mejai, Varanda and Chavi are Tamil words or Sanskrit loan words. They are not. #தமிழ் #tamil_portuguese

#OTD in 1944

Hour by Hour: Showdown in Normandy
After 5 DAYS of intense action as Second Army attempted to envelop Panzergruppe West... tanks stop rolling, lines are refortified & both sides lick their wounds.

Battle of manoeuvre by attrition rolls on. /1

Our story will focus on the kink of the line at the BOTTOM, by Èvrecy.

This spur was hard won during Operation Greenline, as 15th Scottish & 53rd Welsh Divisions attempted to through through the blasted market town & reach the Orne.

II SS-Panzerkorps put paid to that plan. /2
The minuscule crossroads of Le Bon Repos sat near the bottom of Hill 113, allowing British FOOs to peer over the flank of Hill 112 & direct observation accordingly into II SS-Panzerkorps rear areas.

It MUST be removed. /3

This thread is a compilation of writing/threads/tweets on Kautilya's #अर्थशास्त्रम् (Arthashastra).

Thread also includes refutation of propagandas against Kautilya/Arthashastra and topics which are refuted/supported based on Arthashastra.
(1) The very first article I wrote on Kautilya's Arthashastra, also published on @/indictoday

It traces origin-tradition-veneration of Arthashastra as a शास्त्र and later on guiding force for Empires/Kings. It also lists tradition before & after कौटिल्य.…
(2) Here I refuted one propaganda which says slave (slavery) is found in Arthashastra.

Term used by कौटिल्य is दास which is NOT slave.

Turns out IWM's 3 minute vid on Jagdpanther by Delaney was JUST an EDIT of an 11 MINUTE monstrosity!

#WW2 #SWW #History
First off, all my comments/facts in this thread stand.

That is important to remember.

So a huge amount is fundamentally misunderstood & confused. /2

He "that great combination of firepower... and the proven Panther tank chassis that is reliable and very well defended... the tank destroyer the German Army of the Second World War."


Armoured triangle, but top trumps NONSENSE analysis. /3

Last year I discover why! ImageImage

#Thread on Hyder Ali's legacy of Hindu persecution policy.

As people begin to grasp Tipu Sultan's anti-Hindu policies, this thread will make it evident that they were put in force by his father, Hyder Ali too.

#TipuSultan #HyderAli #Mysuru #Mysore #Hindutva #History
Hyder Ali didn’t spare even girls of 4-5 years old, who were purchased on account of beauty to train them in music, dance and to give pleasure.
1763: Hyder Ali fought with Rani of Bednur, Rani Virammaji. When people of Bednur heard about his attack, they fled to jungle. Hyder systematically looted Bednur. His loot was estimated 12 mn sterling.

Later he imprisoned the Rani.

Troubling reports reach Army Group B's Headquarters that some form of breakout looms.

Luftflotte III readies every available fighter and pilot, cancelling all rest and maintenance, to throw in a mega counter-strike. /2
One snapshot sees a massive armoured engagement swirling between the villages of Gavrus & Bougy as 153 'Essex' RAC's Churchills duke it out with 9th SS-Panzer's Panthers and StuGs at close range...

Will Panzergruppe West... and by extension Army Group B, survive? /thread

#history twitter and historic preservation twitter - The City of Atlanta is trying to deforest and demolish the Old Atlanta Prison Farm site here in Atlanta to build a police training facility.
The City has shown NO evidence of having done any sort of ecological or historic assessment, nor any form of site evaluation with an archaeology or preservation team - despite there being ample reason to believe there are human remains on site, and multiple historic structures.

The attack was repelled, with Hindu victory over Arabs!

Beginning in Havana in 1865, factory workers paid for a reader, or lector, to keep their minds active & engaged during long hours of monotonous labor. On a raised platform, the lector #read aloud everything from newspapers to classics.
#photo-#Cuba, 1900
#books #History #writing
And it appears wearing your hat as you worked was also a popular trend.
An amazing image of another lector reading to cigar factory workers in Havana, 1950.

I'm curious if this idea could be modernized for today's labor force? Maybe a #podcast or #audiobooks?

#थ्रेड #Thread

थोडंस संदर्भासहित बोलूया. आपल्या इतिहासकारांनी जे लिहून ठेवलंय जो शोध घेतलाय त्याबद्दल नितांत आदर आहेच. मी कुठेही त्यांचा अनादर करत नाहीय पण ह्या पोस्टमुळे कदाचित अस वाटू शकतं म्हणून लिहितोय कारण ते सगळेच मला कायम वंदनीय आहेत आणि राहतील.
एक भयंकर रात्र आणि त्यात फक्त चिखलात रुतत जाणारे पाय आणि जिवाच्या आकांतने ते ओढट्झ काटे तुडवत विशाळगडाच्या दिशेने धावणारे ते स्वराज्य वेडे. खुद्द राजे सिद्दीच्या वेढ्यातून निसटले. कसे? आषाढातल्या पावसाने आपली जादू दाखवली त्यात राजांचा धूर्तपणा कामी आला
राजे पन्हाळ्यावरून निसटले आणि विशाळगडावर जाऊन पोहोचले सोबत कोण कोण होते तर नागव्या तलवारी परजून उभे असलेले बांदल- बाजी, फुलाजी. का? कारण त्यांनाच ती वाट माहिती होती. नजरबाज जागोजागी पेरले होते. सोबत कडाडणारी वीज पुढचा रस्ता दाखवीत होती.
