Since my earlier tweet on #IranProtests, I have been asked what the #Biden administration should do that would be constructive and supportive of the protestors, who may have been triggered by food prices but whose anger is much deeper and more profound. Here are 3 ideas: 1/5
1) @WhiteHouse should announce that, in accordance with longstanding policy, US pursuit of a new nuclear deal in no way constricts our right and duty to speak out in support of #Iranians exercising the universal right of free speech and assembly. 2/5
2) @POTUS should task #NSC to coordinate all-of-government support to help Iranians access the internet, circumventing #Iran’s draconian restrictions. This should include outreach to tech companies to assist/support online access for people of #Iran. 3/5

#Tablazo ¿Quien es el enigmático venezolano, del equipo del "autoproclamado" Guaidó, que el 5FEB 2020 planteó en oficina de Trump la opción del secuestro-asesinato del Pdte. Nicolás Maduro? La historia la presenta el ex secretario de Defensa Mark Esper en su libro A Sacred Oath. ImageImage
El relato de Esper, rescatado por el embajador de Venezuela en la ONU, Samuel Moncada, reseña con detalles la discusión en la Casa Blanca entre la delegación encabezada por Guaidó y funcionarios de seguridad y defensa de la administración Trump, frente al propio exmandatario. Image
En el reporte expone que la delegación formada por Guaidó, Carlos Vecchio y Julio Borges, pasó de la discusión de dos modalidades de invasión (directa de soldados de EEUU o mercenarios desde Colombia) a una operación especial de secuestro o asesinato del presidente venezolano.

#Pakistan's top security forum, the #NSC, attended by top Govt, military, and intelligence officials, chaired by PM @CMShehbaz, concludes there is no "foreign conspiracy" behind ex-PM #ImranKhan's exit from power after he lost parliamentary majority and was voted out. /1
Ex-PM #ImranKhan's conspiracy claim debunked by #Pakistan's top security forum:

"NSC discussed telegram from 🇵🇰 Emb in 🇺🇸 (...) informed by premier security agencies they found no evidence of any conspiracy (...) The NSC (...) concludes there has been no foreign conspiracy." /2
Today's National Security Committee of the Cabinet is more credible than the Mar 31 meet that ex-PM #ImranKhan politicized. This meeting is strengthened by the presence of Amb @asadmk17, ex-Washington, the Amb who wrote the cable and briefed the NSC. /3

Thus, the authorities of Kazakhstan are demonstrating that the "New Kazakhstan" - is the same old Kazakhstan with political repression, impunity for political persecution of civilians, etc.

Civil activist Ulbolsyn #TURDIYEVA's message: 
March 8, 2022 City of #Aktau
In early January, 2022, I, Ulbolsyn #TURDIYEVA, monitored the peaceful protests in the city of Aktau. There, I confronted some aggressive devotees of the destructive religious movement (the Salafis)

and other provocateurs controlled by the #NSC (National Security Committee). They harassed the peaceful protesters, me and other activists. 
On a tip from the NSC these Salafis intended to arrange a crackdown of the peaceful protesters

and threatened the people that they would start rioting if the protesters didn't go home. These provocateurs attempted to disperse the crowd using their cars - they blocked the road and didn't allow people to pass through to join other protesters.

My former boss—Robert S. Taylor, who served as Acting General Counsel at Department of Defense—with a strong warning to federal employees across departments and agencies.

Two federal laws that could punish #ElectionInterference.

2. Two laws — Hatch Act and Antideficiency Act — can impose stiff penalties (including prison time) for federal employees who illegally undermine the election.

The latter could apply to federal actions that use funds that have not been appropriated by Congress for that purpose.
3. "Every federal employee should assume that if he or she carries out an activity intended to impair or impede the election... their conduct will be judged by people deeply upset over the effort to entrench a President viewed as a threat to the very foundations of our democracy"

To help explain the value of #CDC to the stock market-obsessed Trump administration, in Nov 2018 colleagues and I wrote this article about the links between global health security & the US economy, including effects on jobs, tourism, travel, and education.

We even made it an infographic, so they could understand how devastating a global outbreak could be on various sectors, at-a-glance.

We broke all of this down for individual states and shared this analysis widely on the Hill. Here's a piece of the one for #NewYork. Image

The #whistleblower said: "Over the past four months, more than half a dozen U.S. officials have informed me of various facts related to this effort."
#EugeneVindman should be subpoenaed to determine if he was among the seven or more U.S. officials, or if he just heard from them.
#Whistleblower: “I was not the only non-White House official to receive a readout of the call. Based on my understanding, multiple State Department and Intelligence Community officials were also briefed on the contents of the call as outlined above.”
cnn.com/interactive/20… #DNC
The #whistleblower states clearly in his report his conclusions were based on direct collaboration with “more than half a dozen U.S. officials” who had been feeding him the same "fact patterns" since April, 2019, three months before the July call.
It was synchronized collusion.
