Our tax system provides corporations too many opportunities to hide their money and avoid paying their fair share. The #InflationReductionAct closes some crucial loopholes and makes the system fairer for everyday Americans while reducing the deficit.

Let’s talk about it! 🧵
After years of radical Republican plans to underfund our tax system, the rich and wealthy hardly ever turn over their books and pay what they’re supposed to.

Under the #IRA, we’ll make sure that they can't take advantage like that!

It’s also time we fix our understaffed @irs. With their help, we will process the almost 21.3M backlogged tax returns pending and put those returns directly into your pocket.

It’s time tax cheats pay their fair share and that starts with ensuring tax accountability. Image

Regardless of whether you’re a senior living out your golden years or a family with children, health care costs have gone up in recent years, adding to the inflation felt by everyday Americans.

The #InflationReductionAct directly addresses rising healthcare costs. Here’s how:🧵
The #IRA takes back the power from Big Pharma and gives it back to the American people by allowing Medicare to negotiate for lower drug prices.

Rising inflation shouldn’t serve as an excuse for greedy corporations to raise prices on hardworking Americans. The #IRA caps out-of-pocket prescription drug costs for older adults, saving roughly 1 million seniors about $1,000 each year.

Major incentives for labor standards and domestic content in the IRA will change our jobs metrics from counting heads to accounting for job quality. Renewable projects get 5X the incentives if they meet prevailing wage and apprenticeship standards. Here’s why that matters—>
These standards will certainly help the incumbent workforce, and support a just transition for displaced fossil workers. Also, it will *pull* more workers into great career-track clean energy jobs. >>
Apprenticeship is training that prepares workers with broad occupational skills that can be deployed across a range of projects. It culminates in a credential that is recognized across the industry. This training helps workers weather volatility and it stabilizes the industry >>

I wonder if you might be feeling mixed emotions at the news of the #IRA passing the senate? Thrilled at...finally...historic climate legislation? But sad that the legislation didn't go further towards deep environmental and climate justice?
I've been feeling that mixed emotions feeling last few days and decided to "celebrate" by doubling down at least in one of the small ways an individual sometimes can...increasing a little bit my donations to frontline climate justice organizations.
After all, what better way to address a shortfall in equity and justice provisions than to support those leading the fight for climate justice?

Indigenous peoples hold 80% of the world’s remaining biodiversity. We are the canary in the mine of humanity. Yet just as we aren’t at the world’s decision-making tables on climate crisis, we are an afterthought in the drafting of the #IRA - the first major U.S. “climate” bill.
It’s unsurprising to see “solutions” based in renewables investments & block grants in exchange for leasing millions of acres of land to drilling, rolling back enviro regs & re-upping MVP pipeline.

Mother Nature doesn’t deal in US dollars. Where is her voice?
“Environmental justice” has largely been translated to money reparations, but that’s not true for us all. To me, EJ is protecting the environment of those most impacted by climate crisis & extractive industry. Throwing money at us doesn’t do much if our lands & waters are gone.

@TalkingPicsTV Thank you very much indeed for #Hennessy. One of the best Dramas I have ever seen!

A #OneManArmy taking on the #IRA, #SpecialBranch & #TheEntireBritishEstablishment to avenge the #death of his #WifeAndDaughter.

A #BrilliantPlan #FlawlesslyExecuted. ...
@TalkingPicsTV ... Truth be told, I was rather sorry he didn't get away with it. He may have been #StarkRavingMad, but there was a real touch of class about his #StarkRavingMadness !!!

"Aí, maluco, #Biden achou mesmo que a gente aumentaria a produção de #petróleo em 2022, só para os #EUA pagarem menos de U$5 no galão de #gasolina... Viajou na maionese!".
#MBS e #MBZ não estão nem aí para o desespero dos EUA e #Europa. Não faz sentido algum para os dois déspotas aumentar a produção e reduzir o preço do barril para algo próximo a U$130.

Eles querem o barril a U$300. Bom para #ArábiaSaudita e #EmiradosÁrabesUnidos.
Bom para a #Rússia (que está prestes a dominar a #Ucrânia de #Zelenskyy e avançar). Bom para a #Venezuela e #Canadá. Ótimo para a #Noruega. E perfeito para a #China.

Nenhum dos esforços diplomáticos de Biden deu certo nessa seara em 03/2022.

Superpower or 🤡? "Pakistan’s army & its Inter-Services Intelligence(ISI) play key role in Taliban offensive. Without logistical support from Pakistan, the Taliban would be hard-pressed to operate in such a widespread way". epaper.timesgroup.com/Olive/ODN/TheE…
2/usa Superpower or 🤡? "Of course, Pakistan has been the Taliban’s patron since its creation in the 1990s.
It is impossible to defeat the Taliban as long as Pakistan provides sanctuary and safety, training, equipment and funds for the Taliban."..3/
3/usa #Clownanalysis101 🤡 "Pakistan cannot be defeated, as it is a nuclear-armed State and has the fifth-largest population in world. ...It is curious that Biden has so little to engage with Pakistan. He has yet to talk with Imran Khan." ☝🏼superpower is going to fight #China?😭

🔴 LES LOYALISTES N'ONT RIEN À PERDRE QUE LEURS CHAÎNES

Depuis plus d’une semaine nous pouvons voir dans différents médias des images de nuits d’émeutes dans les six comtés de l’Irlande occupée. Voici un thread analysant la situation actuelle ⤵️ (1/18)
Que ce soit à #Belfast ou à #Derry des jeunes attaquent les forces de l’ordre, incendient des véhicules, expriment leur rage et leur impuissance. Si ces images sont relativement courantes au nord, deux détails rendent cet événement assez unique. (2/18)
L’étendue de la contestation tout d’abord mais surtout les protagonistes. Cette fois, ce sont des #loyalistes qui attaquent les forces de l’ordre. Pour comprendre pourquoi les « fidèles à la couronne » attaquent ses représentants et ses « protecteurs » (3/18)

Did you know that you are required by law to have motor vehicle insurance before you put your vehicle on the road? This coming week we will be posting about this type of cover. Keep it here!
#IRA #Motorvehicleinsurance #understandinginsurance #besafe #washyourhands #WearAMask Image
There are 4 levels of cover for motor vehicle insurance in the market. The first is “The Act Only”. This is the bare minimum motor insurance cover that you can purchase for your vehicle and it only covers liability for death and bodily injuries to third parties. Image
Before purchasing “The Act Only” cover, it’s important to note that it does not cover damage to third party property arising from an accident. Image

#AntiVax Conspiracy Hoaxer Jim Corr @Jimcorrsays - he of the Corrs @TheCorrsMUsic - is defending a #Fascist Rally in #Dublin (one which is being hosted under the false guide of something to do with paedophilia, as usual). And attacking those who try to counter it. Image
@Jimcorrsays @TheCorrsMUsic He routinely posts hoaxes about Vaccines, #Covid19, Anti-Mask, persecution of the Irish by immigrants, Mossad, and #LGBT.

Perhaps at this point 'Jim' would like the opportunity to clarify his views. Image
@Jimcorrsays @TheCorrsMUsic Of course there simply IS no 'Rally against Paedophila' in #Dublin.

it's a #Trump / #QAnon #Homophobe's Day Out, by Hermann Kelly - ex #Ukip, ex #IRA, now an #Irexit loon.

Why Jim Corr would chose to throw his lot in with these Far Right Extremists, only he can explain. ImageImage

#1 Os EUA anunciaram sanções contra a estatal aérea de Venezuela, #Conviasa. A medida é extraordinariamente poderosa, pois acerta em cheio a um dos principais elementos de suporte as atividades criminosas das máfias que tomaram o controle da #Venezuela. home.treasury.gov/news/press-rel…
#2 As sanções contra a #Conviasa fazem parte de uma mudança de abordagem sobre a #Venezuela. A empresa era usada como arma de guerra. Em janeiro, em uma entrevista a @EVTVMiami, expliquei isso e disse que @jguaido deveria trabalhar junto aos #EUA para impedir a Conviasa de voar.
#3 Quais são as ações da #Conviasa? A companhia foi instrumento empregado por Hugo Chávez para ajudar o #Irã a violar as sanções e a desenvolver o seu programa nuclear nas trevas. Além disso, a empresa criou uma rota para terroristas entra Caracas e Teerã.

#1 Há cinco anos, a #Argentina entrava em transe com a notícia da morte do procurador #AlbertoNisman, que chefiava as investigações do atentado contra a #AMIA (1994). Os investigadores cravaram se tratar de suicídio. Tese que nunca ficou de pé e até hoje alimenta polêmicas.
#2 Os elementos periciais são suficientes para refutar a tese do suicídio de #AlbertoNisman. Ele estava provavelmente subjugado, de joelho e com mão coberta (pela de outra pessoa?) A ausência de lesão mostra que seu corpo foi depositado no chão e manchas de sangue foram limpas.
#3 #AlbertoNisman morreu, na minha avalição, por acertadamente ajustar o foco das investigações. Olhar não só para o que o #Irã e #Hezbollah fizeram, mas para o que continuavam a fazer em conluio com o governo de @CFKArgentina. Aqui uma das escutas grifadas pelo próprio Nisman.

#1 Eis a Embaixada do #Irã em Washington. Fiz esta foto ao sair da @BrazilinUSA, que fica bem em frente. O prédio está incólume, desde 1979, quando enviados do aiatolá Khomeini o trancaram, mas não antes de despejar na sarjeta centenas de garrafas da adega oficial. Que pecado! 😪
#2 As instalações são resguardadas pelo @StateDept e @SecretService. Em 2015, o @washingtonpost mostrou o seu interior. Mobília, quadros, documentos espalhados, tal como os iranianos a deixaram. As relações diplomáticas foram rompidas, mas o compromisso de cuidar do lugar não.
#3 Em 1979, os iranianos cercaram a Embaixada dos #EUA, em Teerã, e fizeram 52 americanos de reféns por 444 dias. O edifício foi invadido e transformado em um "museu de arte antiamericana". É o regime em estado bruto.

#1 Definitivamente, os problemas do @portadosfundos não são as ações judiciais e as queixas de cristãos brasileiros. O senhor na imagem abaixo é o iraniano Alí Qomi. Em vídeo publicado no Youtube, ele pede que os muçulmanos reajam à blasfêmia produzida por @netflix.
#2 Trata-se de algo preocupante e potencialmente perigoso. Qomi ressalta que a violência não deve ser aplicada contra o @portadosfundos. Fala em ações "racionais". Mas sugere como exemplo a fatwa (decreto) que o aiatolá Khomeini contra @SalmanRushdie. Pena de morte.
#3 Quem é Alí Qomi? Ele é genro de Mohsen Rabbani, que é acusado de ser o arquiteto dos atentados contra a sede da AMIA na #Argentina. Minhas fontes explicam que Qomi é o sucessor de Rabbani no comando da expansão das operações "culturais e religiosas" do #Irã na América Latina.

Isso sim é algo relevante. Os #EUA tiraram de circulação o mais importante comandante militar do #Irã e chefe das operações clandestinas do regime dos aiatolás. Boa notícia. Mas o mundo deve ficar alerta. Os iranianos usam do terror como arma de vingança.
reuters.com/article/us-ira…
O Irã e o Hezbollah mandaram a Embaixada de Israel em Buenos Aires (1992) e a AMIA (1994) para os ares em atos de vingança pela morte de comandantes da milícia xiita. O terrorismo é instrumento de ação do #Irã. O mundo sem Soleimani é um lugar melhor. Mas isso não chegou ao fim.
Vejo que tem muita gente tentando entender a amplitude das redes iranianas e o grau de penetração na América Latina. Depois vou tentar subir aqui um capítulo que escrevi, em 2014, sobre a presença do Irã/Quds no Brasil. Precisaria de atualização, mas dá boa introdução ao tema. ImageImage
