This conversation is connected to previous comms.

Long story short: Pelosi flipped and created a self destructing impeachment. Check thread -> however she un-flipped at the most important part. We've since had comms trying to fix it.
First change is nothing -> NOTHING
Look at the sequence of tweets Trump did for another all caps NOTHING. Thus we do that. In that tweet Trump is saying "good idea" to #RudyGiuliani who talks about a way to nullify impeachment thru the SC

Another irrelevant thread coming up. As #Solemani was buried huge crowds gathered to pay their respect but what's interesting is that the #AyatollahAliKhamenei wept. This trend of powerful personalities openly shedding tears hasn't garnered enough attention.
Earlier powerful men were supposed to be stoic or atleast portray that image. From time to time we have seen powerful men cry but now even that is used as a political tool. A list of POTUS's crying. Almost all the incidents are after the 90's.…

Long #Thread on #Iran's geopolitics 👇(I am posting the first series leading up to the Iranian Revolution. Post-Revolution events to follow later)

1. Without going into too much detail, it is worth noting that Iran (or Persia) was an imperial power during many periods in its history. In fact, at the time of Alexander the Great's invasion of Persia, the Persian Empire was the greatest the world had ever seen.
2. This imperial past is necessary to understand Iranian policy. There are two main drivers of Iranian policy in the region: its belief that it is the guardian of Shia Islam but also a great nation with an imperial past (and thus entitled to weild influence over other nations)

Bodies of slain General #Solemani & comrades arrive in #Ahwaz, Iran. A mammoth funeral procession has kicked off. Images of hundreds of thousands mourners packing the streets, bridge & square, is colossal.

.3/ This is only in #Ahwaz, southwest of #Iran & the first leg of #Solaimani’s funeral procession. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like once they arrive to the capital #Tehran.

I#BREAKING I think we are missing the bigger picture here.

1) @BarackObama gave #Iran $2B.
2) He gave 5 terrorists back for a traitor.
2) He and @HillaryClinton we’re running guns to #ISIS through #Behngazi
4) #Suleimani supposedly planned the #Benghazi raid.

5) #Stevens was getting cold feet. He was eliminated.
6) There was an unauthorized laptop there that, if Iran had gotten it, would have given our entire military plans to them.

And the coup de grass—#Solemani lieutenant met @BarackObama and @JoeBiden in the #WhiteHouse while #BO was #Pres in 2012 or 2011. #Behngazi was in 2012....were they coordinating it? Or paying for it?

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony…

.@AriFleischer, last night: "I think it is entirely possible that this is going to be a catalyst inside Iran where the people celebrate this killing of #Soleimani."

#Iran, today:
.@SecPompeo: “We have every expectation that people not only in Iraq but in Iran will view the American action last night [killing #Soleimani] as giving them freedom."
And @AmbJohnBoIton – who can score a $2 million book deal for his intimate knowledge of Trump's misconduct but won't testify about it to the American people – says the quiet part out loud: not an "imminent threat", not "deterrence", but regime change.
