Well, it seems that the fascists have found their new marginalized group to blame the world’s ills on - and it’s trans people.

Make no mistake, I fully expect this same kind of legislative bullshit to make its way into Canada - the connections between the conservative parties here and the GQP fomenting this crap in the US are far too tight for it not to. /2
Not only is this legislation draconian, it’s extremely dangerous for anyone who is either transgender themselves, or works with transgender people professionally. /3

OK #Covid_19 #COVID19 #Covid #uspoli #canpoli #ukpolitics #EU #worldpoli are you or one of your family members one of the 1/100 predicted to get severely ill from #Omicron the #COVID19 #Covid_19 #Variant despite being 3-4X vaccinated and following public health advice?
A THREAD:
And so it seems world leaders around the globe have finally come together - to declare that 1/100 people with #Omicron experiencing severe disease and/or death is an acceptable number for "a productive economy" - what does that mean if YOU or an at-risk family member is 1/100?
First you must accept the cold hard fact that nobody any longer gives a single solitary flying shit that you or your family member(s) are now after 2 years of "we're all in this together" staring down the very short barrel of a rapidly increased mortality risk from #Omicron.

1/26 🧵#CDNpoli #2Michaels #Elxn44

It's been hard for me to watch #CDNmedia coverage of the 2 Michaels, knowing there's a pointless media blackout that's resulted in widespread #disinformation & exploitation by partisan actors

This #thread is RE Spavor

2/26 🧵#CDNpoli #2Michaels #Elxn44

Canada has become a laughing stock to our global partners due to #CDNmedia suppression of facts about Spavor & Kovrig, that are available to everyone else in the world, including 🇨🇦, if we only bothered to google

archive.is/9IxGI
3/26 🧵#CDNpoli #Elxn44

I've known facts about the #2Michaels for some time & I declined to share earlier so it wouldn't impact Spavor & Kovrig's trials in #China. But that collective ignorance is being weaponized against voters & both sides have been disingenuous in recent news

Given everything that’s been happening in the world, I think it’s time to revisit the subject of #ActiveMeasures.

Not just for Soviets anymore.

A 🧵.

#USpoli #cdnpoli #UKPolitics #EUpolitics #nzpol #auspoI #Brexit
When the Kremlin launched its weaponization of social media prior to 🇺🇸 2016 election, there was great concern that other malignant actors would quickly adopt these techniques.

They did.
Now, not only state-actor operations, but for-hire malign influence operations are reaching epidemic proportions as well, in countries around the world. (nytimes.com/2021/07/25/wor…) #disinformation #propaganda #ActiveMeasures

1/24 This is the second #thread in a controlled #leak of my #CAF/#DND investigation. The reason I've chosen to release these details early is to neutralize #disinformation in #CDNmedia during the pre-writ phase

This one is RE Conservative Party Leader Erin O'Toole #CDNpoli
2/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

As my first #thread about Deputy Minister Jody Thomas identified, there's an issue with "torqued" #CDNmedia at Global News (Mercedes Stephenson) + Globe & Mail (Robert Fife) surrounding the Canadian Armed Forces

For reference:
3/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

Most readers are unaware of Mercedes Stephenson's (Global News) undisclosed conflict of interest pertaining to her husband, Dan Mader. Widely described as an on-again/off-again union, Canadian Forces & #CDNmedia were invited to the wedding in 2015

2/9 For the record, to accept @JoeBiden's recent 'revelation', you'd have to believe the US State Dept is staffed by entirely new people since Trump & that they obtained new info Trump never had by magically going back in time to locate a smoking gun @WHO & #USpoli never found
3/9 Moreover, #CDNmedia is forgetting (or neglecting to verify anything whatsoever) that both #CDNpoli & #USpoli govt scientists were working in China as official partners to set up the Wuhan lab, that everything done there was under our watchful eye, management & safety controls

1/19 I regret that my Epoch Times investigation isn't finished yet & I'm going fast as I can

With that said, this #thread is another teaser & I'm giving it early release because of its implication to the #UighurGenocide vote in #CDNpoli today & how MPs have been sorely misled
2/19 #CDNpoli #Uyghur #UighurGenocide

First off, the Conservative party pressure to force a vote in Canada is due to a campaign concocted by Steve Bannon, to squeak through his agenda (continuing Trump's agenda) to force a war with #China before Prez Biden can get up to speed
3/19 #UighurGenocide

They're capitalizing on right-wing ownership of most #CDNmedia to disinform #CDNpoli about the #Uyghur issue, without the threat of being fact checked

Our dystopian news climate is being used to manipulate @JustinTrudeau into painting @POTUS into a corner

Dear, @HouseGOP: You're worried about impeaching Trump being "divisive"? About how the "Dems are unified in hatred", etc? #USPoli #AttemptedCoup /1

What could be more divisive than a sitting President exhorting his followers to "march on the Capitol" on the day that the legislators are reviewing the results of the Electoral College vote? /2

washingtonpost.com/politics/inter…
Even if Trump was otherwise uninvolved in planning this debacle (which seems unlikely), his speech and his actions following it, are anything but benign. /3

Rogues Gallery of Folk Who are Culpable in Destroying Our World With No Substantive Action on Abrupt Climate Change:

Makes you feel like you are on the Titanic!!



#ClimateAction #ClimateEmergency #ClimateChange #climate #cdnpoli #USA #uspoli #Weather
The title says it all, really. World leaders have impotently addressed our climate crisis with never ending verbal diarrhea and useless treaties with next to no action on addressing our climate crisis. Now we are in a full blown climate emergency.
Now we are in a full blown climate emergency with very little chance for doing anything about. Arctic sea ice almost hit a new record low (2012 still lowest) but as we near Nov. there is exceptionally low ice regrowth...

Dear 650000+ #USA citizens currently living in #Canada,

But I can't understand why only 30500 of you voted in #2016USElxn. That's downright pitiful by any #voter turnout standard...

Has it occurred to anyone that the 1% consider democracy as a means to keep regular people thinking they have some sort of power over their lives while, in fact, often power lies somewhere else entirely? #cdnpoli #uspoli #AbLeg 1/5
Has anyone considered that, perhaps, the conservatives always go after education because they know that educated people are less likely to vote conservative? 2/5
Has anyone wondered if, maybe, conservatives defund health care because privitised health care is a money-maker for their corporate donors AND people who are sick, and broke, and desperate seldom have the energy to protest draconian legislation? 3/5

Droughts are currently having widespread impacts around the world.

E.g. in Thailand

1/9 #CDNpoli #USpoli #UKpoli #ForeignInterference

So, I set out to find contact info for Twitter to get in touch RE incidental censorship of political journos due to new company policy

Upon digging through the SEC I discovered theres a #TwitterPAC & I'm too busy to deal with it
2/9 #CDNpoli #USpoli #UKpoli #ForeignInterference

The #TwitterPAC is interesting enough to share though, in case any American journos wish to inspect

A few highlights:

- Twitter uses Deutsche Bank
- They donated to Chuck Grassley
- They also donated to the Tea Party's Mike Lee
3/9 #CDNpoli #USpoli #UKpoli #ForeignInterference

Today Dorsey stated

"We've made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought"

Yet this conflicts with a #TwitterPAC

#CDNpoli #DebatDesChefs2019 #CDNecon #Elxn43

So Andrew Scheer would spark an economic war with #China if he became prime minister

Because he doesn't know how much Canadians buy from China (ie. all cell phones & clothing), or he doesn't see how well that's been going for #Trump?
#CDNpoli #DebatDesChefs2019 #Elxn43

And Jagmeet Singh would spark a diplomatic war with #USpoli by suspending Safe 3rd Country Agreement

Because Canada can afford to absorb the US refugee problem & become a surrogate? Or #CDNecon can afford a closed border with America either?
#CDNpoli #DebatDesChefs2019 #Elxn43

Whether you like him or lump him, PMJT is taking the most challenging path by going up the middle

It's the track with the most lumps from ideological purists on the left & right, because it negotiates & manages Canada's extensive diversity

1/2 #Trump #USpoli #PressFreedom

The Unhinged States of America appear to have a presidential editing problem

Check it out

1st story in @CNN by @dakinandone mentioned the alt-right militia, Oath Keepers, at the #Portland protest

(2nd edition scrubs it)
msn.com/en-ca/news/new…
2/2 #Trump #USpoli #PressFreedom

But that @CNN story by @dakinandone RE the #Portland protest was updated to remove any mention of Oath Keepers militia

Reporting was re-framed to support the president by obscuring alt-right violence & implicating Antifa
cnn.com/2019/08/17/us/…
@CNN @dakinandone 3/2 #Trump #USpoli #PressFreedom

I did @CNN the favour of archiving @dakinandone's original #Portland protest story

Because editors that skew the news, due to political pressure, don't belong in the Fourth Estate

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
#Warren
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.

Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.
