This is one of the WORST interviews on China you will ever see.

Stoltenberg is well aware of the THREATS that the ChiCom Networks around the world pose to Civilized Society...

and yet he Dances like a Scared Bitch around the #1 GeoPolitical Crisis


If NATO Partners do NOT recognize the THREAT of the ChiCom Networks growing influence around the world, then HARD MEASURES will be required to FORCE them to come around
Playing "nice" with China was still possible before the Rise of Xi in 2013

But the true nature of the ChiCom Networks has been Exposed

They are an ENEMY of Civilized People ALL AROUND THE WORLD

My mom & dad bought their first house in #PaloAlto for about $16,000. At the time, it cost about 5 cents per hour to park downtown. Today, that same house would cost ~$3 million & it’s free to park downtown.

We have completely solved our affordable housing problem–for our cars🧵
In 2019, surveyors counted 313 homeless people in #PaloAlto, up 99% from 2013. They found no homeless cars.…
How did #PaloAlto become a city of expensive housing and free parking? In 1951, Palo Alto adopted a new zoning ordinance. The new law limited housing and required parking.…

Jacqueline & her husband live in Stockton & were celebrating their 12th anniversary when their car was broken into at Fisherman’s Wharf.

#SanFrancisco Image
Jacqueline brings Leo everywhere but the 1 time she thought he was too cold & tired she put him in his car carrier & tucked it under the car’s dash, mostly out of sight.

She got back about an hour later & said “my heart fell…I knew something happened.” #SanFrancisco ImageImage
This happened at North Point & Powell. Jacqueline & her husband spent all night searching but had to drive home. She is devastated.

She said this trip “was supposed to be happy & beautiful & it turned traumatic. My heart just broke leaving the city without Leo.” #SanFrancisco ImageImage

¿Puedes caer al vacío y llegar a tener un vida plena?
¿Puedes bajar a los infiernos y regresar?

ABRIMOS #CuéntameUnPuente
El 6 de marzo el Ministro de Cultura de Italia @dariofrance inauguraba un año mágico para el país, que celebra el 700 aniversario de su gran poeta Dante Alighieri. El programa de actos cubre todo el mundo a través de las embajadas.

🎭Más información
Dante era temido por sus contemporáneos porque "había estado en el infierno". Sus terribles descripciones en la #DivinaComedia causaban pavor. Pero no es Dante el único que ha estado en el infierno. Algunos constructores de #puentes... también han estado cerca de ese lugar.

Katerina’s parents have owned Franklin Market 25 yrs. 72-y/o father Petros (known as Peter) was attacked last week #SanFrancisco Image
A man allegedly came into the store to use the restroom. When Peter explained there were no public restrooms the man got belligerent & pulled out a knife.

Peter was stabbed in the chest, arm and left eye.

This all comes as his wife was diagnosed w/breast cancer #SanFrancisco Image
Peter is an immigrant from Eritrea.

His daughter Katerina told me her father “came to this country to find a new life & what we thought was a safe life…and now they’ve never been this terrified.”

He is now having problems seeing in his right eye which was not stabbed. Image

(PLEASE RETWEET) On January 15, 2021 6:30AM, an unidentified man broke into my parent's restaurant, The Crew (in Sunset District, SF) and stole everything valuable to us. A simple retweet could potentially help identify this man and give justice to my parents. (1/12) ImageImageImage

Taking a break from the #CapitolSiege to ask everyone a question I ponder ALL the time: Which urban neighborhoods bordering major waterfronts offer safe *pedestrian* access to the actual WATER—and preferably to long linear parks offering > 1000’/300m of continuous water access?
I've spent MANY hours looking at Google Maps for ways to walk to the river from residential neighborhoods in cities all over the U.S. Access is TERRIBLE. I'm sooo envious of #Vancouver, BC. It's frustrating how cut off we are by seawalls, railroads, industry, private homes... /2
Hood River is an incredible town, and it’s the undisputed windsurfing capital of Earth. But, just like ALL of Oregon’s Columbia River towns, I-84 completely severs all possible pedestrian connections between residential areas and the river itself. /3

The U.S. has ~300 cities whose population exceeds 100K. Most of them have "buffered" (by PAINT: 0 protection) bike lanes, with the (car) #parking lane along the curb. SWITCH the bike & parked car lane, and you'd have traffic-calming and a MUCH safer #cycling experience. @PBOTinfo
I cannot stand seeing streets that are "improved" for "cyclists" by putting a wide bike lane *between* parked and moving cars. #Portland's N Denver Ave is a classic example. SWITCH the bike lane & car #parking lane; it solves many issues simultaneously! /2
Biking between the curb and parked cars means that there's almost *zero* car movement around you, outside of intersections. Door-zone biking is nearly eliminated--and if a passenger door does open, you're not thrown into car traffic. /3

Biological warfare, or “germ warfare,” is the “use of biological toxins or infectious agents (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) with the intent to kill or incapacitate humans.” Historically, the US’ involvement in bacterial weaponry has been driven by competition and paranoia.
In 1942, President Roosevelt signed into action the first biological warfare program; backed by the National Academy of Sciences
A government body -- the War Research Service (WRS) -- was created to oversee these activities, and George W Merck (of the #Merck Pharmaceutical Company) was appointed to leadership.

Wow... @nytimes has gotten way ahead of their skis here!…
NYT: Kamala Harris’ parents belonged to a study group that was “the most foundational institution in the Black Power movement,” along with “Huey Newton — the future co-founder of the Black Panther Party.”

Huey saw Mao as a hero. He visited China in 1971, met Premier Zhou Enlai.
The “Maoist Internationalist Ministry of Prisons” — which pushes #BlackPanther-style Maoist Revolution, runs a Tor site, & accepts Bitcoin — began publishing a newsletter from a #SanFrancisco PO Box in 2007. It’s sent to prisons everywhere.

How’d #SanFran DA #Kamala not know?
