🚨 @Keir_Starmer @faisalislam @kdhdownunder

Here why major currencies have been plummeting for ONE YEAR NOW.

A quick thread 🧵

🚨 After Covid, #Biden came to office in January 2021.

His RECKLESS green policies and FECKLESS spending made him borrow $7 trillion for 2021, which is UNPRECEDENTED in US history.

Note that there was NO #Ukraine in 2021.

🚨 As a consequence, #inflation started in the US resulting in a much lower confidence for both businesses and consumers.

Here is the data supporting my statement.

Being a Woman is a dangerous job.

You may be killed by Islamic Morality Police like #Masha_Amini
Or raped and killed by a Police Officer like #SarahEverard

You may lose your Human Rights like the Women in #Afghanistan
* No higher Education, no Work, no Healthcare, no Voice

You may lose your Right to Control your Body. Forced pregnancies.
Like the #GOP wants to do to the Women and Girls in the States.

Or maybe you Never had any Rights like in Saudi Arabia. (Now things are a bit better.)
Maybe you were simply killed cause you were a babygirl.

1. grazie a @_Nico_Piro_ per questo tweet sulla guerra in #Afghanistan in cui il 17 /9/2009 saltarono in aria 6 uomini della #Folgore,15 civili afghani,feriti 60 civili afghani e 4 soldati italiani:
2. ora vi invito a leggere il cablo di #WikiLeaks su quello che accadde dopo quell'attentato. #IgnazioLaRussa era preoccupato che con tutti quei morti,il profilo basso che aveva permesso all'Italia di stare in guerra 10 anni in Afghanistan, saltasse: wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
3. è così che la guerra in #Afghanistan ci è stata venduta per 20 anni: silenzio,un articolo ogni morte di papa,la guerra lontana non faceva notizia. Il complesso militare-industriale ringraziava con gratitudine: wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…

Taliban say that they have released the last remaining American prisoner Mark Frerichs in a "prisoner swap" in exchange for Taliban drug lord Haji Bashir Noorzai, the last Afghan Gitmo prisoner. Talibani FM Muttaqi says Noorzai was handed over by Americans earlier today. ImageImageImage
Mark Frerichs, 59, is a US contractor who went missing from Kabul in 2018 after he was kidnapped by the Taliban. He is a civil engineer from Lombard, Illinois. For years, the Taliban have denied having him under their custody. This just shows that Taliban lie (taqiya) when needed

1. viene da farsi una domanda cruciale: perché la questione "dark money" dalla #Russia esploda proprio ora: a partire dal 2008,la diplomazia USA riporta nei cablo ripetuti e insistenti sospetti su #SilvioBerlusconi,ma negli ultimi 14 anni non una prova: esisteva?Oppure no?
2. viene da chiedersi: se esistevano prove di "dark money" dalla #Russia,in particolare su #Berlusconi(sottolineo "SE",visto che i cablo non le riportano), perché #Berlusconi è sopravvissuto politicamente a queste prove?
3. i documenti segreti di #WikiLeaks sulle intercettazioni #NSA di #Berlusconi e dei suoi più collaboratori(Valentino Valentini,Stefano Stefanini,Bruno Archi, Marco Carnelos) sono del 2011: almeno dal 2011 è documentato spionaggio USA del governo italiano ai più alti livelli

1) Two days ago, I went to Surkhrod in Nangarhar to buy breaks. There I saw small girls doing heavy work. All day, these girls help their parents make breaks, and at evening they collect the remaining coal to make fire in their houses.
#Afghanistan #SaveChildren #Children #help
2) These girls are very strong. I asked them about school. All of them said, there is no school in the area. If there were any, they would go and study. Their financial situation is very critical. They were seven days a week, but still cannot afford enough food for the family.
3) I have issued them Omid Ids through @ASEELApp so that you and I help them. You can buy them a food package and put their Omid Id in the comment. #Donate #Feed #Food

Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia's "main effort in #Ukraine almost certainly remains its Donbas offensive", rather than reinforcing against the counter-offensive in Kherson. Moscow has had "the most success" in Donetsk recently, but it is still advancing only 0.5 miles per week. Image
Horseshoe theory in action: "Progressive International" leader supporting the nationalist protests in #Czechia and their #Russia-friendly demands to cease support to #Ukraine and restore economic relations with Moscow. Image
