#Breaking Et voici la déclaration d'#urgence nationale de #Trump sur la frontière avec le Mexique. Coup de force contre le Congrès qui sera tranché par les tribunaux fédéraux...1 nouvelle façon de présider est en jeu.
2) Bien sûr avec cet état d'#urgence, #Trump fait ça d'abord pour faire la"nique" à #Pelosi, reprendre la main politique après le #shutdown et rassurer son socle nationaliste/identitaire...mais pas que...il modifie profondément l'exercice constitutionnel de la présidence...
3) Par cette #urgence, #Trump viole en effet 1 des pouvoirs constitutionnels les plus sacrés du #Congrès, le fameux pouvoir du "porte monnaie" (power of the purse)...

Folks hate it when I remind them that our most progressive president was #LBJ, because someone told them it was #FDR.

(But it would have been great if FDR's VP #HenryWallace had succeeded him instead of #Truman.)

LBJ.
Almost a Socialist.
Unmatched to this day.
For those unfamiliar with LBJ, he gave us:
#CivilRightsAct
#VotingRightsAct
War on Poverty
Great Society
##Medicare
#Medicaid
Head Start
Immigration and Nationality Act (expanding immigration)
doubled federal spending on education
expanded wilderness preservation
gun control
LBJ also gave us:
Food Stamp Act (now SNAP)
Regional Medical Program
Higher Education Act
Public Broadcasting Act
National Endowment for the Humanities
National Endowment for the Arts

And yes, he gave us Vietnam.
But he was the most Socialist president in US history.

Some historiography remembers Henry #Stimson with much more admiration, incl'g for fathering what became the #Nuremberg trial, than it does John J. #McCloy. This Evan Thomas piece is, behind its headline, a good reminder not to romanticize or oversimplify. washingtonpost.com/opinions/how-o…
Some of Stimson's greatness in #FDR's and then, briefly, #Truman's, Cabinet during & right after #WWII was his Assistant Secretary of War, McCloy's (plus others'). And some of McCloy's failings were, above him, Stimson's.
(Yes, I know. Stimson & McCloy. This should really go viral.)

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
As it will be proved from the quotes below:

#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality
“We must expel the Arabs and take their places…”~#DavidBenGurion
Born in 1886 as David Green (Gruen) in Plonsk, #Poland. He is considered one of the three founding figures of Zionism beside #ChaimWeizmann & #Herzl.
