In order to understand the #Idlib “de-escalation agreement”, one must understand the nature of relationship between #Putin & #Erdogan. Best to think of both leaders as being engaged right now. Not yet in a full marriage but neither is ready to walk away from each other just yet=>
2-Engagements don’t last forever. They either end in marriage or in walking away for good. This engagement phase will be tested over the coming months as Erdogan is expected to deliver on promises he made to his partner.
3-Naturally, Syrian Leadership is watching this engagement phase very closely. The base case scenario in Damascus appears to expect Erdogan to experience significant challenges in delivering on the promises he made to his partner. The coming few months will prove to be decisive

Let's revisit #CarterPage. Did you know: #Page visited Moscow on $$ donated by AlfaBank's Petr Aven. AlfaBank: partnered with deVos's Amway; had Richard Burt, Trump's first foreign speech writer, on its board. Burt & Page both worked for Gazprom.
medium.com/mosaic2/who-is…
2. Page announced Tillerson's nomination on Dec 12, 2016, in Moscow. Trump announced Tillerson in the US on Dec. 13. Katehon, Dugin's project, covered Page's visit/speech. Dugin is nicknamed "Putin's brain." medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
3. Dugin's projects and publications (in Russian and English) like Katehon and “Orthodox TV channel” Tsargrad are sponsored by Russian right-wing nationalist Konstantin Malofeev, the founder of Marshall Capital, one of the leading Russian investment groups.

BREAKING - Likely #Israel airstrikes just hit a scientific research center - reportedly linked to the SSRC - in #Latakia.

#Assad regime air defenses were allegedly activated in multiple provinces: #Latakia, #Tartus, #Homs & #Hama.
Mabrouk #Assad - your invincible air defenses shot down an aircraft!

... a #Russia IL-20 reconnaissance plane was shot down over #Syria tonight - amid #Israel airstrikes in #Latakia.

#OwnGoal

Tonight’s developments vis-a-vis #Israel & Russia are a pretty big deal.

It would seem #Israel may have acted without giving #Moscow prior warning = big challenge to their prior arrangement.

Or, #Russia did know, but got attacked by their errant ally in #Damascus = humiliating.

#InternationalCriminalCourt Today, WH National Security Advisor #Bolton announced the U.S. will cease cooperation with the ICC (agency prosecuting war crimes/crimes against humanity; governments acting the people.) Yesterday, #Putin's government arrested 836 people in Russia.
This is what the Kremlin does to the people: old, young, handicapped, no matter. The images are graphic and disturbing. So is the reality of a mafia state. What is happening? The Russian government siphons money from the appropriated natural resources outside of Russia.
Each year, the Kremlin launders and stores in the Western banks and offshores an estimated 40–50 billion dollars, according to @anders_aslund , a senior fellow at the Eurasia Center at the Atlantic Council. Estimated Putin's circle wealth: 250 billion dollars.

Security minister @benwallaceMP spoke to me this morning on #Salisbury #GRU #Putin #sanctions. Main takeaways: 1] the govt is keen to embarrass the GRU and deter would-be spies from joining
2] @benwallaceMP went further than May did yesterday in putting the responsibility for the attack directly on Vladimir Putin: "Ultimately the responsibility lies with the leader of that country"
3] And finally, one winner from Brexit will be UK foreign policy says @BWallaceMP because the UK will have the power to act unilaterally against Russia when it comes to sanctions #russia #brexit #sanctions

#Pence's older brothers, Ed Pence, is an executive at Cummins Inc., a company that manufactures engines for the #Russian military and has also used LOBBYING firms connected with #PaulManafort, indicating that Pence may have ties to #Russia.

#Pence gives #Putin brophile a new meaning and takes Russiaphilia to a whole new level. It gives Pence MOTIVE for IGNORING U.S. Congressman Cummings’ warning, last November, re #FLYNN.
Cummins is deeply involved in #Russia through sales and joint ventures.

💣🔥💥🍿🐾#SamPatten is a starter on this menu. A thread on #Trump #Putin #Collusion: from pop-singers in Taj Mahal to weapons in Syria, plus what Satan, black cats, soccer, Patriarchs & judo wrestling have in common. Tarantino, it is not. Oh, plus #CambridgeAnalytica. 👇
1. #SamPatten admitted failing to register in the U.S. as a foreign agent for his work lobbying on behalf of a Ukrainian political party. Breaking. 👇
2. "The nature of his cooperation isn’t clear." (Yes, but the connections are telling.👇 ) . Patten worked with Manafort and & on microtargeting operations with Cambridge Analytica.

#ThrowbackThursday: @VoteMarsha received 33 (!) letters from @FEC re: over $100K in unreported donations - while her campaign finance chair was Kline Preston, 1 degree of separation from Vladimir #Putin thru Preston's pal Torshin (see pinned thread). #RussianConspiracy #TNSen
From the @JSunNews article "Group files complaint against Blackburn's campaign committee" 12 June '08 by Bill Theobald:
Just this week another close @VoteMarsha pal, Judson Phillips - her mouthpiece for years - was disbarred for fraud.

Alexander Torshin is, of course, the mob-connected Russian Senator who was invited by @VoteMarsha re-elect org chair Kline Preston to observe TN elections in Nashville in 2012. #TNSen
Here's Torshin with Preston and @BillHaslam - at the @TNGOP victory party here in Nashville on Nov 6, 2012, same event where @VoteMarsha spoke. Yet we're to believe she didn't meet with Torshin.
What kind of access did Torshin get?

What kind of help is @VoteMarsha getting from Russia right now, while @SecTreHargett refuses to spend TN's Help America Vote funds - $29 million - to secure our election?

As we get closer to midterms, trolls and bots will push #FakeNews more than ever.

Here are some tips for spotting and fact checking possible propaganda or disinformation posts on social media. 1/9 #MondayMotivation
The tweet above that says McCain admitted to being a war criminal is an example of disinformation.

When you read the @snopes article, it's clear that McCain was talking about a false confession he wrote while a POW as a result of torture. 2/9 goo.gl/owo1Pb
A good example of propaganda is using #mollietibbits' tragic murder to paint #immigrants as criminals and advocate for anti-immigrant policies. 📰goo.gl/r6A1aS

They want to elicit an emotional response in working class Americans: to fear immigrants. 3/9

In the late 80's and early 90's most #Trump headlines looked like this.
By the late 90's and early 2000's it was reported that he had become a billionaire, no longer in debt. Not before filing 2 bankruptcies and announcing many projects that were never built.

1987 #Trump met Soviet leader
Yuri Andropov, He was even the boss of a promising young #KGB officer named Vladimir #Putin.
Yuri arranged a trip for Trump to visit Moscow. His hotel room, a corner suite accross the street fom the #Kremlin.

In 1986, #Trump met with one of the few Americans who knew Mikhail Gorbachev, seeking information about the USSR's new leader and telling plans to ask Reagan to post him to Moscow.
Shortly after he showed interest in #Russia and they got word of it the plan was born.

Dass politisches Handeln auch erklärt sein will, ist eine Binsenweisheit. Aber seit schwarz-blau regiert, haben messages das Handeln ersetzt. Kinderbeihilfe, Standortsicherungsgesetz oder "Routen" - es zählt vor allem die message. Nach außen und an's eigene Publikum (thread)
die vielen "Ansagen" zB im Bereich #Asyl: fast alle nicht umsetzbar, weil in offenem Widerspruch zu Völker- und Unionsrecht. Aber: die eigene WählerInnenschaft hört's gerne, und Flüchtenden wird signalisiert: ihr habt hier keine, absolut keine Perspektive.
wer das jeweilige Zeilpublikum all dieser statements und Ansagen mitdenkt, hört auf, sich zu wundern (oder gar, sich über die vermeintliche Unfähigkeit des Regierungspersonals zu ärgern). Diese Regierung kommuniziert, und sie muss es tun, jeden Tag

Fascinating & damning deep-dive into the mess that followed #Assad’s Sarin attack in E. #Ghouta in August '13.

@BarackObama’s “cold feet” & distance, #Putin’s political “games” & @Ed_Miliband being “actively unhelpful.”

= Delays guaranteed no action.

thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/s…
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: Exasperated at how distant #Obama had seemed & how difficult it was to connect with him by phone, the UK’s PM #Cameron said:

- "The next time I ask to talk to the president about chemical weapons attacks, tell me to turn over on my sun lounger and go to sleep.” #Syria
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: After briefly expressing support for UK military action in #Syria, @Ed_Miliband's turn to party politics to slow/prevent action left PM #Cameron’s office furious, to say the least:

- “No 10 & the Foreign Office think Ed Miliband is a f****** c*** & a copper-bottomed s***.”

Preparations appear to be underway for a pro-#Assad offensive on #Idlib.

12hrs of on/off air & artillery strikes vs. southeastern & western #Idlib & northern #Hama - see marks on map (original by @ETANA_Syria + my additions).

+ multiple large pro-regime convoys moving north.
@ETANA_Syria #pt: If/when any major military campaign gets underway, expect the #Assad regime (+ #Russia & #Iran-backed militias) to focus on these 2 fronts:

1) West #Idlib (Jisr al-Shughour)
2) N. #Hama/#SE #Idlib (Latamineh, Khan Sheikhoun, Kafrazita)

-> a gradual push ‘inland’ & north.
@ETANA_Syria Very good by @theIRC’s @DMiliband:

- The West must “re-assert” itself & protect civilians in NW #Syria & as a backstop, safe-routes should be opened for civilians to flee into #Turkey.

- UNSC must demand full access to S #Syria; for aid, monitoring etc.

How does the sanctions issued by #PresidentTrump against #Russia in any way resemble the narrative many on the #left have fabricated that he is a pawn of #Putin?

Time + time again, #President #Trump is firm w/#Russia, and he’s done it again with the @StateDept declaring that #Russia has violated #InternationalLaw.

Russia’s protests should come as no surprise to a President who has, and continues, to show a firm hand in dealing with them.
