06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

1. Thoughts on #TheStorm and #Prophecy. I always look forward to Monday when #BenjaminFulford's weekly update comes out. He's sometimes wrong, but usually pretty close and VERY big picture. This week's blog at benjaminfulford.net confirm's we're close to #TheStorm
2. This paragraph stood out because it contains TWO predictions that may pertain to prophecy: - The #ChangingOfTimes by a global leader, and the rebuilding of the #Temple in #Jerusalem. You can read about these at prophecysigns.com/20-key-prophec…, but beware...
3. These interpretations come from the deceptive framework of #Jesuit #Futurism, which is the most common framework for interpreting prophecy today - so common in fact that most people don't know the name for it or that there are alternatives.

When visiting #Rome, tourists usually (and comprehensibly) focus on its #ancient remains. Today for the series #EarlyMedievalPills I'll take you through the #Carolingian city of Pope Paschal I (817-24) who, in only 7 years, left a permanent mark on #Roma's sacred topography 1/11
First I need to tell you about his family: he was the son of Bonosus and Theodora and he was very attached to his mother whom he wanted to be immortalised in the stunning #mosaics decorating that little jewel that is the Chapel of St Zeno in Santa Prassede #Roma 2/11
"Theodora Episcopa": lots of speculation about the reasons why she was called bishop-ess. Two possibilities: either Paschal I's father was a bishop and the honorific title extended to his wife, or Paschal paid homage to his mother by granting her a title of distinction 3/11

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

@Comey @BarackObama Lauretta Lynch @NancyPelosi @RepMaxineWaters + many more are so stupid they use GMAIL to communicate.
A central account used by all. Create drafts but do not send.

Play Station. X-box. Ham Radio.
They think their communications are not logged.
3.
They killed Osama Bin Laden of course right before @BarackObama 2 election.

No pics were taken of his body. No dna. No finger prints and to top it off they dumped his body in the ocean.
@BarackObama didn't want to offend the #Muslims.

Yet Saddam Hussein it took 11 days.

From #Pericles to #Trump: A brief history of the West in 21 tweets (including this tweet). Purpose is to show how through the muddled history there is a direct ideological train connecting Western Civ that is meaningful to talk abt. Obvs lots is missing. it's a tweetstorm. (1/21)
753 BCE: A little town called #ROME is founded on the banks of the Tiber in #Italy. It will invent the word Emperor & become the standard for all future western empires. Its language is still used on the seal of the American President, along w/ its symbol of the Eagle. (2/21)
387 BCE: Plato founds his Academy for philosophy in #Athens. In between bouts of mansplaining & homoeroticism they trailblaze the concept of using logic & reason to make sense of the world & develop tools for doing so we still use today. (3/21)

#Rome
The seat of power for the Christianity.
Now let’s see this city in a slightly different light. #Thread
#Rome is a city engineered to display the ruins and destruction of the polytheist Romans and the victory and glory of the Christians.
The stark contrasts are not mere a product of time, they are a statement.
This is the #Pantheon
‘Temple of all Gods’. It predates Christ. The polytheist Romans worshipped Gods of forces of nature here. The central occulus- a hole in the ceiling- is the entry of all forces of nature inside. #Rome

Yesterday a big anti-terrorism operation took place in #Italy. Several suspect terrorists allegedly linked to ISIS have been detained or are wanted. They’re connected to Anis Amri, the perpetrator of 2016 Berlin terrorist attack, were allegedly planning to attack Italy 👉🏻THREAD
1. Everything started with the arrest on Wednesday of Elmahdi Halili, 23 years old, a guy born in Italy of Moroccan origin and living near Turin. He had been already arrested a few years ago for terrorist propaganda, he is the writer of the 1st Italian known ISIS manifesto
#italy
2. This time something was different though. Halili seemed to have upgraded his terrorist linked activity: in fact he allegedly turned into a jihadist recruiter, according to prosecutors, “raising” a dozen of potential terrorists to prepare a terrorist attack, likely in #Italy

1) Most of #history is a total lie, designed by people wanting to infer meaning of historical events in a modern context, as a means to elicit a response from you which suits their needs.

This is a story about the #rothschilds from the early 20th century.

#QAnon #GreatAwakening
2) Even within this tweetstorm are probably a lot of missing nuances. Do tell your stories.

I will start after #WWI and the Treaty of Versailles. It never made sense. Why divide #Germany in these pieces and leave it's people impoverished? Isn't this a recipe for resentment?
3) Why did the #Germans, even though a foreign boot never shot a boot on their soil, make overtures of peace to end the #war, while they were poised to win?

Their objectives were met.

Why was the #USA brought into WWI? Why were large payments sent to #communist #Russia? #QAnon

There is this idea that #Sanskrit is the mother of all the languages. The problem with this idea is that it has no scientific backing. 

What prompts Kannadigas to wrongly claim that European language Sanskrit is the mother of Dravidian language Kannada?
Unlike #Sanskrit..., Tamil is one of the oldest languages, with the longest literary & spoken continuity in the world thehindu.com/lr/2003/08/03/…

#IMLD
As #AIT being proved by universities around the world for last 5 decades by means of Archeological, linguistic cultural facts & by DNA proofs, comparative studies… Hindutva govt at Centre formed a committee to establish that Hindus descended from India’s earliest inhabitants.
