It's World AIDS Day: time to take stock. Because there is no #HIV #vaccine and women can't compel men to use condoms, people continue to get newly infected. And because the majority of them live in poor parts of the world, the undeclared #pandemic is very expensive.

BREAKING: #BNNUS Reports.

Republican Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader), in the U.S. House of Representatives, on Tuesday called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to step down.
He warned that, the House shall try to impeach him when Republicans get the majority next year.

McCarthy is hopeful about being elected as House Speaker when the new Congress is sworn in January.
McCarthy said that his colleagues will hold congressional hearings at the U.S.-Mexico border after taking control of the chamber. He termed this as an effort to force Democrats to see conditions there first-hand.

Historically, the world is in a transition from the global hegemony of the U.S. (or its ruling class) to a multipolar world to the global hegemony of China (and its ruling class, party?).
Historical analogies are risky, but they can open horizons by pointing out common & different historical situations.

The paradigm shift from Western US dominance to Asian dominance is accelerated by Covid19 & the Ukraine war. Century is accelerated by Covid19 & the Ukraine war.
Until 1820, the world's largest economies were always China and India. Only in the last 200 years have Europe and the United States triumphed. Compared to 2,000 years earlier, Western dominance is an anomaly.

Thesis
The USA is and remains an oligarchy. The US-Americans live under the rule of the ruling US-class of the very big fortunes.
The election staging every 2 years and permanent wars are just to keep distracting from that.
#Midterms2022 #Republicans Image
Thesis
The US/NATO proxy war in Ukraine against Russia will be lost. Not because Ukrainians are running out of weapons, but because Western Ukrainians and mercenaries are. With a Republican victory, the US government can sell its about-face in the Ukraine war #Midterms2022 ImageImageImageImage
and demand negotiations with Russia before they lose western Ukraine as well.
Democrats and Republicans differ only in outward appearance to the inside, one pseudo-left woke, the other conservative and nationalist. #Midterms2022 #Republicans Image

Though #2022Elections will likely be a significantly less blue year than 2018, we're not expecting a huge net change in number of governor’s mansions each party holds. Of 5 races that we had in the Toss-up category until today, we’re giving a small edge to the #Republicans in 4

US-based Hindu nationalist groups intersect with numerous other right-wing ideas and ideologies.

Some examples here, drawn from this recent article: audreytruschke.com/hindu-right-us… (image if you want this all in one go). #Hindutva #rightwing #Republicans Image
First of all, basics --

Hindutva is a far-right political ideology.
Hindu nationalists are a politically defined group.
Don't confuse #Hindutva and #Hinduism.
Hindu nationalists have been part of American life for half a century.

America also has lots of other right-wingers...
A well-established connection are Hindutva links with Zionist organizations. This is in spite of the extensive documentation of Hindutva admiration for Nazis.

Hindu nationalist groups are also rather fond of attacking academics, a quintessentially right-wing activity.

Because no one else will say it out loud about Democrats, Biden and womens equal rights (the #ERA), I’m starting a thread that I hope goes viral because it will educate people enough to pressure the president to do his fucking job this year.
@POTUS #Biden is completely responsible for the #abortionbans in several states. It’s true. Here are the facts. By the numbers, so use a number if you want to argue back:
