Oha! Post ist da vom Anwalt des Präsidenten der Eigentümer-Lobby @hausundgrund_de. Die Diskussion ist definitiv rauer geworden beim Thema #Sanierung & #Wärmepumpe, aber das ist eine neue Dimension. Krass - ein Thread 🧵
Vorbei sind die Zeiten, in den wir uns scherzhaft Kaffeebecher und Frühstücksbrettchen hin- und herschickten – wie sein Anwalt mich wissen lässt, habe @KaiHWar gegen mich wegen Erfüllung des strafrechtlichen Tatbestands der üblen Nachrede einen deliktsrechtlichen Anspruch. /2
Konkret hält es @KaiHWar für „ehrverletzend“ und strafrechtlich relevant, dass ich Tweets von @cj_schroeder und @JuttaPaulusRLP kommentiert und retweetet habe. Hier die entsprechenden Links /3

2/ Bereits im Januar 2022 hat Habeck eine Gebäudestrategie Klimaneutralität 2045 versprochen. Das vorbereitende Hintergrundpapier hat das Ministerium letzte Woche klammheimlich auf seiner Webseite veröffentlicht. Es lohnt sich ein Blick auf die 253 Seiten.…
3/ Die Botschaften sind sehr klar: Ein klimaneutrales Deutschland 2045 muss bereits heute in aller Konsequenz vorbereitet werden. Die Untätigkeit der letzten Jahre und Jahrzehnte lässt den vor uns liegenden Minderungspfad immer steiler werden.

Thread: Appearances with right-wing populists and on TV: ex-#Frontex head Fabrice #Leggeri is causing trouble in the EU border protection agency. He even sneaked back into his old office for a video conference. Frontex threatens ex-director Leggeri with legal consequences. 1/x Image
2/x Actually, #Frontex thought it was rid of Fabrice Leggeri. At the end of April, the Frenchman was pressured to resign from his post as head of Frontex because he had covered up the #Greek refugee #pushbacks in the #Aegean.
3/x His contract was terminated and he was to vacate the office at the agency's headquarters in #Warsaw. But Fabrice Leggeri apparently can't quite let go. While the leadership of the #EU border management agency met last week in #Paris for a supervisory board meeting,

🤔 How does the @Europarl_EN decide which committee is responsible for a file? Why were the #DataAct allocated to @EP_Industry while #EHDS went to @EP_Justice? As requested by many, my new #EP thread will explain the opaque steps before #MEPs can finally start to work (🧵👇)
After its adoption by the College of Commissioners and its successive public presentation by the @EU_Commission, the proposal is - in line with the ordinary legislative procedure - transmitted to @Europarl_EN and @EUCouncil in order for the co-legislators to make a co-decision.
Step 1️⃣ the Referral Unit in DG Presidency checks the legislative proposal mainly on the basis of the @Europarl_EN's ANNEX VI in the 'Rules of Procedures', makes a referral to a lead committee and appoint opinion giving committees. This decision is then announced in plenary.

1/ What a Tragedy for 🇪🇺 🚨🚨 one more 🧵

The @Europarl_EN has therefore decided to turn #Europe into the next generation #Leviathan. Makes me wonder if Thomas Hobbes was a #scifi author more than a philosopher !
2/ Beyond the inevitable decrease in competitiveness for the European digital asset ecosystem - this decision is much more serious, calling into question the very freedom and privacy 🕵️‍♀️ of #European citizens if enacted in law.
3/ In this specific instance - #MEPs have collectively failed to understand two fundamental dimensions of blockchain:

@EU_Commission will propose Minimum #EnergyPerformance Standards (#MEPS) this year as part of #EPBD revision. Our new paper “Next steps for MEPS” sets out how to do this. 1/9 #RenovationWave #EUGreenDeal @Energy4Europe

THREAD: Ahead of @realDonaldTrump speech on #healthcare, it's worth looking at how @JoeBiden's plan likely will undermine the existing system of employer health coverage.

Details in my report available here -- or follow/RT this thread... 1/…
Regarding employer coverage, @JoeBiden's health plan contains two key features. First, it would allow individuals who have an offer of employer coverage to go to the Exchanges and receive subsidies -- right now, they can't do that in most cases... 2/
Second, @JoeBiden wants to increase #Exchange subsidies. He would allow individuals with incomes over 400% of poverty (about $100K for a family of four) to qualify for them (they can't now). But he also wants to expand the existing subsidies for those under 400% of poverty... 3/

Today, once again, the @Europarl_EN expressed its strong support for a Conference on the Future of Europe (#CoFoE) to be organised as soon as the health situation permits.
Once again, the leaders of the Member States (@EUCouncil) are holding back by not having a common position.
Close to a year after the 2019 European elections, this campaign item is still nowhere near agreed upon and, once again, European citizens will blame EU institutions for their inability to act. Member States leaders must meet their responsibilities in the interest of citizens.
In a timely fashion, on the same day as #MEPs confirmed their vision for the Conference on the #FutureofEurope, our national Ministers for European Affairs failed once again to agree on a common position. We need a better #Europe, this one isn't working.…

Nous devons de plus en plus prendre soin des plus vulnérables alors que #Europe se prépare pour #COVID19. Les personnes âgées, les Rroms, les pauvres,les sans-abri dans nos rues, les minorités et les personnes confrontées au racisme structurel ont besoin d'attention.#solidariteit Image
We are a community. We are only as strong as the most vulnerable among us.

Time to take meaningful actions to root out structural racism that weakens us all in EU & discriminates the most vulnerable. #SystemChangeNow #FightRacism #COVID19 @KMTaylorBerlin @MPriv_o @EU_Commission Image
What #COVID19 is screaming to us is clear!

We all are equal in our fear for ill health.

When will minorities, migrants, women, the poor, homeless & old people in #Europe have equal access to quality health care?

Holy Moses.

It is also incredible - knowing all this evidence and having reports from the Information Commissioner and a Judgment on illegal coordination between the Vote.Leave and Be.Leave campaigns, as well as overspend- that both UK and EU continued Brexit negotiations.

Article 50 (1) states "Any Member State may decide to Withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements".

The result of the 2016 Referendum was cited by Mrs May in her Article 50 letter of 29 March 2017 as the basis of her Decision to start

withdrawal negotiations. A period to last two years, or longer by joint agreement.

The illegal breaches of Electoral Law, by both the Vote.Leave and Be.Leave campaigns, would have seen the result declared 'Null and Void' - EXCEPT for the fact that the Referendum

Far from being unelected bureaucrats, as is sometimes suggested, #MEPs are the only office holders in the EU set-up who are directly elected by the voting-age public. 2/…

The @Telegraph is wrong to say MEPs represent a zombie Parliament.

They are chosen by you, the electorate, and work (yes, work) for a fully active and responsive legislature. #EPfactsUK Thread.
The European Parliament is jointly responsible for passing nearly 90% of new EU law.

The current Parliament has passed 1128 legislative files since it first sat in July 2014.
