#Draadje
De BELANGRIJKSTE punten uit de #CETA-speech van @thierrybaudet. De #EU onderhandelt namens 27(26) landen en dus NIET namens #Nederland.
#OneSizeFitsNoOne
Vergelijkbaar probleem: de #ECB KAN geen rentevoet vaststellen die voor elk EU-land goed is.
#Nederland wordt nu al gedwarsboomd BINNEN de #EU
Voorbeeld: #Frankrijk zorgde dat de NL #pulsvisserij kapot werd gemaakt. #CETA is een ondermijning van onze #democratie en #soevereiniteit.
De #anywheres profiteren, de #somewheres verliezen hun stem.
Kunnen we na #CETA nog voorwaarden stellen aan producten uit Canada? We geven iets weg wat we NOOIT meer terug kunnen krijgen. Lobbyisten van #multinationals krijgen NOG MEER invloed ten koste van de gewone burgers. De weg ligt open voor #procedeerclubs als #Urgenda.

1. Dear #WeThePeople of the LEFT

U have correctly identified the problem - that a 1% ELITE controls our government

But your solution of SOCIALISM is misguided

Let’s work TOGETHER to destroy this ELITE class

ONE ISSUE POLITICS - Destroy the Elite

#EndTheFed
2A. From @noamchomskyT
Requiem for the American Dream

“If u look at wealth distribution, the (income) inequality mostly comes from super-wealth -.. the top 1/10th of a %... If u check u find that over the course of these years the govt policy has been modified ...
2B. “.. AGAINST THE WILL OF THE POPULATION to provide enormous benefits to the very rich... Real incomes have stagnated for over 30 years. The MIDDLE CLASS in that sense.. is under severe attack. A significant part of the AMERICAN DREAM is class mobility... It’s all collapsed.”

#GE2019 #GeneralElection2019

Are you still #undecided?
Are you thinking of voting #LibDem? Think very hard: your vote may get you a very bad #Brexit.
You want to #Remain & that's why you're voting #LibDem?
But the #LibDems can't #RevokeArticle50 unless they win the election. In 2017 they won 12 seats. They need 326 MPs to win. How many do they need to claim a mandate to #Revoke?
Maybe the #LibDems can form a minority government?
Could a minority government #RevokeArticle50? Even for that the #LibDems would need at least 200 seats. And what other parties would they then need for success? The #SNP might vote to #RevokeArticle50, but would they be enough?

#India has lost $7 billion #WTO case against US. Meanwhile #China has won its case with WTO allowing the Chinese to impose a $3.6 billion sanction on American goods. The verdict comes days after India US officially suspended defense cooperation. #TradeWar greatgameindia.com/india-loses-7-…
The #WTO verdict against India in favor of US in a $7 billion case comes days after India and US officially suspended defense cooperation in what is now giving rise to a full-fledged India-US #TradeWar.

The #WTO case was filed in March 2018 by the U.S., challenging what it said were illegal export subsidies provided to #Indian firms. The decision, which can be appealed, comes amid a now full-fledged  India US #TradeWar.

1. The #WTO World Trade Organization, established during the #Clintons Presidency 1994

Sacrificing our Sovereignty, marching USA into the #NewWorldOrder

Approved by the likes of @senatemajldr / @SpeakerPelosi

@CongressDish

BEWARE OF THE #USMCA 👉

congressionaldish.com/cd102-the-worl…
2. The #USMCA

Think it’s about FREE TRADE with our neighbors ?

No

It’s about linking us into the #NewWorldOrder , tying us to world regulations and the UN

We desperately need #TermLimits to thwart attacks like this on American Sovereignty 👉

3. #USMCA

Free Trade agreement? Think again

#Congress is supposed to be responsible for immigration, right?

SURPRISE!

This “Treaty subordinates the United States’ sovereign power over immigration to global and multi-national bodies. USMCA Art. 16.2”

With my last drop of CJEU judgments brainpower for the week, here are some key points from the global takedown of #Facebook defamatory comments case published yesterday #Glawischnig Long thread alert! 1/x curia.europa.eu/juris/document…
Setting the scene: this is not a data protection or #privacy case. This is a case concerning deletion of information, but grounded on defamation. It is irrelevant for the case at hand that those comments contained personal data, even if they did. 2/
Fun fact: the #GDPR specifically excludes from its scope of application those situations which also fall under the scope of liability rules for intermediary service providers, Art 12 to 15 from eCommerce Directive, precisely what the CJEU was asked to interpret. 3/

¿Has oído hablar del Tribunal Multilateral de Inversiones? #MultInvCourt

Una especie de corte mundial para ampliar los privilegios de las corporaciones transnacionales. Se negocia en la Comisión de Naciones Unidas para el Derecho Mercantil (#UNCITRAL).

Abro hilo ⤵️ #StopISDS
1⃣ Los acuerdos de comercio e inversión representan una forma para que las empresas multinacionales y millonarios se enriquezcan a costa de la gente de a pie. Eso es lo que la UE ha hecho durante 50 años con el mecanismo de ‘solución de controversias inversor-Estado’, o #ISDS.
2⃣ El arbitraje de inversiones o mecanismo de ‘solución de controversias inversor-Estado’ es un privilegio especial del que han abusado muchas multinacionales. Es un aspecto desconocido de los tratados comerciales para gran parte de la sociedad. #StopISDS cuartopoder.es/economia/2019/…

Word that @WhiteHouse plans to nominate #DavidMalpass to run the @WorldBank has several implications, which I'll touch on in this thread.
First, Bank staff will reel from the widespread frustration many felt w/Jim Kim's "big ideas" and reform agendas, now likely to be shred.
MORE
Second, Malpass shares many of ideas forwarded by GWBush-appointed @WorldBank leader Wolfowicz, including disdain for globalization, dislike of typically liberal development programs, and little respect for the expertise of Bank economists. He's on record anti-#WTO .
MORE
Third, Malpass is cut more from the cloth of Reagan than #Trump , which in the scheme of things is good news. But he shares @POTUS disdain for Xi's #beltandroad economic scheme and sees China as a threat. This could set the WB in >er competition w/China Development Bank.

1/ war paint on & we're ready to #EURockNRoll 🇪🇺🇬🇧👊

Protesting outside Parliament today over the #MeaninglessVote

Your deal is dead @theresa_may! Plan B is Plan A - and it's not good enough for #Britain!

It's time for the people to demand a #FinalSay on this mess
#StopBrexit
2/ there appears to be massive @UKIP and @LeaveMnsLeave #WTO rules protest and march occurring.

Not enough Remainers on the ground to counter & the atmosphere is very toxic.

I was immediately called every name under the sun and told I am a disgrace. 🙄
3/ I had to take a photo of this dude.... I'll give it to him - his costume is great! 😂🤣😂 #LeaveMeansLeave

@JamesDelingpole Two issues with your piece.
N°1: you assert, "Britain traded perfectly well for the large chunk of history it has spent outside the EU." This is a spurious argument. The EU didn't exist then. We are going from the best possible trade terms with the EU (SM+CU) to worst (#WTO).
/1.
@JamesDelingpole This will not just impact our trade with EU27 + EEA/EFTA4, but also with those countries with trade with via EU FTAs and those countries we trade with on WTO+++ terms, the '+++' furnished by the EU's 759 facilities that improve on #WTO terms.
/2.
@JamesDelingpole Only 16% of UK's trade is on WTO terms alone.

You're proposing that we dramatically downgrade 100% of our trade to WTO terms alone, at the stroke of a pen. This is insanity. It has taken decades to reach to position we're in today. No wonder Mogg says 50yrs to recover!

1/ This #Get2KnowWTO campaign is really a new low for the hard brexiters. This has gone from moronic flag-waving to something approaching outright disinformation. NO WTO experts think that WTO is a good option for the UK. NONE. #Brexit #WTO
2/ Claim - 164 countries in the world trade under WTO rules - this is what is known as a 'lie of omission'.
3/ "Six of the EU's top 10 trading partners trade under wto rules including the USA."

1/4 If anyone is still listening, here’s an ABC of WTO-only #Brexit as it applies to my business, driving & #trucking.

Bryce Baschuk (@bbaschuk) writes for Bloomberg on WTO.

Dmitry Grozoubinski (@DmitryOpines) has actually been a #WTO negotiator.
2/4 Dmitry lists (by his own admission, in no particular order) planes not flying, ill prepared customs authorities, removal of competent authorities & loss of financial services & then says this about #trucking..

While we wait for #HELSINKI2018 to finish, here's a couple of remarks inspired by the #TrumpPutin meeting.
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.
