1: WHY DO THE MEDIA CONSTANTLY PUSH HATRED OF RUSSIA? Why are media determined to make sure USA & #Russia maintain Cold War levels of mistrust? Who benefits if USA & Russia hate each other? Who coordinates media’s repeated use of words, phrases, narratives?
From where did the Deep State come to USA? How did it take control? What is the goal of the Deep State? Why are elements of US Government & Media trying to overthrow Trump?
Historically, which country has felt most threatened by Communism?
To understand media’s attempts to reactivate the Cold War, we should first look at World War 1. At the beginning of WWI Germany a document explaining German War Aims. The “September Program 1914” Two key aims: 1 Stop Russian expansionism. 2 Germany to found & lead European Union

⚠️Beware of Russians bearing gifts. Putin's latest propaganda stunt or worse: #Russia sends "Humanitarian aid"—complete w/ hashtag, video & grateful Trump.

(NB 80% of Russian aid to Italy was useless: "Medical experts" were 🇷🇺Army officers, so 20% sabotage😎) #RussiaHelpsRussia
Beware Bad Samaritans: 80% of #Russia’s #coronavirus “humanitarian aid” was “completely useless" to Italy. No ventilators, PPE or frontline medics. But plenty of senior biological, chemical & nuclear ARMY officers—sent from the Defense NOT Health Ministry…
Yes, I'm cynical about Russia's propaganda stunt, having spent years watching Russia sabotage Ukraine w/ truckloads upon truckloads of Kremlin "humanitarian aid."

FACT: Russia is not a friend & won't be w/ Putin, who sabotages US by helping nightmare Trump get & GF keep power.

Hard to keep up w/ all hotspots around the world & separate signal from noise. Few observations from last 24 hrs.

TL; DR - Turkey, Russia, Philippines, Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, California should draw our attention.

Testing, Testing, Testing. 1/x
Turkey has grown their cases by 50% in last 48 hours. They are one of the fastest growing (#Covid19) large countries and straddle a geopolitically sensitive region. 2/x…
#Russia & the #Philippines have suddenly cropped up w/substantial growth & both look to be starting from behind in terms of testing. They are following a familiar pattern and they start out with no particular advantage. And this doesn't help matters.… 3/x

Ok, while everybody is talking about #China, #Russia or #Cuba in the context of #coronadiplomacy, let's take a closer look at #Turkey. Who received Turkey's help? What did it consist of? Thread.
So it seems, naturally, that China was the first one to receive Turkish help in February. It consisted of: medicines, medical mascs, googles and gloves. Also in February 🇹🇷 evacuated from 🇨🇳 - in addition to the Turks - citizens of 🇦🇿, 🇦🇱 and 🇬🇪.
Then, in the first half of March, 🇹🇷 sent help to Bulgaria. According to @DailySabah 🇧🇬 "bought 50,000 masks, 100,000 protective garments and 100,000 safety goggles from Turkey". According to @anadoluajansi, 🇹🇷, together with Turkic Council countries, sent aid also to Hungary.

1/ OK, time to make myself unpopular. Yes, in broad terms, #Russia considers itself at #politicalwar with the West, but so much of the overheated current coverage of a supposed use of #COVID19 in infowar is questionable + dangerous. A thread.
2/ Stop conflating Moscow + Beijing. #China is absolutely staging a coordinated disinformation campaign to minimise its responsibility for the pandemic. But the “China + Russia” formulation implying they are the same or coordinating just doesn’t work
3/ Yes, all kinds of toxic conspiracy theory in some of (state-ctrlld) Russian media. But that doesn’t mean it is Kremlin-mandated. These talking heads are paid controversialists who come up with all kinds of nonsense all the time on all subjects w/o any guidance

The Syrian regime asks the #US and the #EU to lift its economic sanctions to let him respond to the #coronavirus outbreak in #Syria. Let’s look at these sanctions to see what the regime wants to achieve with that. Spoiler: not assisting its population.…
1/ Western sanctions against the Syrian regime are not preventing the regime to provide medical assistance to Syrians. There is no general embargo on #Syria. #US and #EU sanctions do NOT target the medical sector.
2/ 71 entities and 277 individuals are targeted by #EU sanctions because they are tied to the repression or funding of the regime. Sanctions also target sectors at the heart of the financial networks of the regime : weapons, tech tools for repression, crude oil import...

@PoliticoRyan Dear @PoliticoRyan: Thank you for your nice analysis. I completely agree w India & homeless/refugee shelters (#1 & #3). But not so sure about #Russia, #Germany, & #Iceland. Rate of spread depends on PREVENTION/MITIGATION POLICIES in a community/country.
@PoliticoRyan #Russia seems to have established very strict intervention measures, including mandatory quarantines and lockdowns. They are probably not truthful about their testing stats, but that has not much to do with the dynamics of disease spread.
@PoliticoRyan For example, #China most probably underreported cases/deaths by at least 10×, but they succeeded in controlling the spread through strict nationwide prevention/mitigation measures.

THREAD: So where's the next big Coronavirus problem going to hit? Look out for:
1. India
2. Russia
3. Homeless and refugee communities
4. Germany
5. Iceland (i know it sound weird - but they have the highest known infection rate now, overtaking Italy). Reasoning follows ...
Why India's a problem: Only 500 people a day were being tested up to now - in a country of 1.3 billion with very uneven health infrastructure. Revised plans would test only 2 million. Social distancing v.v. hard to do in urban slums.…
Why #Russia's a problem: They reported only 147 cases, despite land border and close trading links with China. Throw in Russia’s coronavirus disinformation campaigns, and a claim to have tested 116,000 people for 147 positives is 🧐…

Curious, what's the intersection of Israel/NWO/China? When did NWO take over China?

WWIII wasn't Russia vs US, but China vs US.

Il regime #cinese, oltre le #mascherine c'è di più

Dalla totale assenza di diritti #LGBT, al bando dei social network quali #Facebook o #Instagram, ai campi di concentramento per convertire i musulmani, la mancata #TEMPESTIVA e totale trasparenza sulla questione #SARSCoV2
un paese fortemente economicamente squilibrato, oltre che sotto molti altri punti di vista, e non pienamente democratico.
Il vero volto della #Cina di #XiJingPin. Segue la #Russia e molti altri paesi, che ad alcuni sembrano molto appetibili e/o invidiabili. Teniamoci stretta questa nostra #Italia con pregi e difetti, da continuare a correggere.

While everyone is understandably focused on #COVID19, something potentially very important happened in the peace process on #Donbas #Ukraine a few days ago. Warning, very long thread to follow.
On 11 Mar., parties to the war in Donbas agreed at a #Minsk Trilateral Contact Group (#TCG) meeting to form an Advisory council starting 25 Mar. This is big news.
The stated goal is to allow #Kyiv to negotiate implementation of the 2015 Minsk II agreements, which outline a political settlement to the conflict, with those directly concerned: residents of territories currently outside government control.

General Michael Flynn finds out the FBI altered the Peter Strzok 302 interview files to say Flynn discussed sanctions with a Russian Ambassador.

Flynn's lawyer requested the original files.
The files have been "lost"
The 302 sounds like Flynn and the Ambassador had a top secret, in the dark of night, back ally meeting.
It wasn't, it was a meeting with dozens of countries.
Flynn followed protocol + notified his superiors and recieved permission.
Strzok sent a text to Page on Feb 10/17 that said he "updated" the 302.

This was right after an article was published saying Flynn talked sanctions with #Russia

The articles source was most likely the FBI.

Whilst looking at bots tweeting links to ZeroHedge, we encountered the recently awakened bilingual newsbots @rotepille (German for "Red Pill".) #ThursdayThoughts

cc: @ZellaQuixote
ZeroHedge searches in general continue to get bottier; the last 10 days worth of tweets appear to be 9.8%, up from 7.3% in mid-February. @rotepille is at least the 5th newly-made or reawakened bot to start pushing ZeroHedge since @zerohedge's suspension.
In what may or may not have been a reaction to the 2018 midterms, @rotepille went silent from Nov 9, 2018 to Feb 28, 2020. Although its early tweets were sent via "Mobile Web (M2)" rather than a custom app, we nonetheless believe they were automated due to the rigid schedule.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

THREAD ❇️A statement was released today by Activists and Civil society Organisations in north west #Syria (1)

They voiced concerns about the fact that the #Russia - #Turkey deal is unclear about the fate of the areas North of the M4 Roadway.
As activists and civil society organisations in north west #Syria we remain against handing over any liberated territory and we call on the #Turkish side to support the opposition factions in retaking these areas, to ensure the return of the civilians from those areas (2)
.#Russian control over areas south of M4 means #Regime’s control is there & aligns with its public statements that it is near taking control of #Ariha, #Jabal_Al_Zawiya #Jisr_Al_Shughour. This does not meet demands/aspirations of millions of #Syrians from these areas (3)

The @guardian is publishing Bill Browder’s evidence to the ISC, delivered in 2018. We don’t know if it features in final report. It paints a depressing picture of British former intelligence officers, MPs, PR guys lobbying on behalf of #Kremlin interests in return for £££££
The eventual report contains two sections - one public, the other secret. The confidential part has already been ‘published’ or circulated inside Whitehall, among spooks and government insiders. It’s this section which is likely to discuss #Russian emigre donations to #Tory party
