The ASIA Syndrome

Patients with 1) post-vaxx symptoms, 2) macrophagic myofascitis, 3) Gulf War syndrome, 4) sick building syndrome, and 5) siliconosis. The onset of symptoms after injection of an adjuvant is usually between 2 days and 23 years after exposure.
Minor criteria: 1) the appearance of autoantibodies directed against the suspected adjuvant, 2) other possible auto-immune “symptoms”, include irritable bowel syndrome, 3) positive HLA markers like HLA-DRB1, HLA-DQB1 and 4) the initiation of autoimmune illnesses, like M.S.

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. @OttoKolbl

"Internationally, the pandemic has spawned recriminations & finger pointing" per #Singapore's @leehsienloong "Domestically, populations in many countries feel growing anxiety & insecurity that has fed nativist sentiments"

#CoronavirusUpdate 2021/7/29🇯🇵 A physicist argues by using a brilliantly crafted animated scale to show how #StateofEmergency measures #緊急事態宣言 “cannot be used over and over again” because its effectiveness is limited without hard #lockdown measures.
#Tokyo2020 #Olympics
Dr. @ryseto updated his infographic after 3,177 cases were confirmed in Tokyo on July 28, saying "SoE declaration which can have some effect by just 'declaring" cannot be used over and over again," suggesting the declarations have not been enough.
Earlier on, he also used his infographic to show how #VoC (Variant of Concern) has been replacing the original strain of #COVID19 in #Asia. It shows a more strong measure is needed or otherwise we will be crushed by the 'apparent shift' in the equation.

If story of #Sinauli shocked u yesterday, wait till u read about #Rakhigarhi ,as accepted internationally the #Oldest & #largest civilization to be found in world!
This will also answer the Q about whether #NoAryan theory has been proved or not & role of Modi govt
In the budget of Feb 2020, @nsitharaman announced 5 archaeological sites located across five states to be developed with on-site museums
Rakhigarhi in Haryana, Hastinapur in Uttar Pradesh, Sivasagar in Assam, Dholavira in Gujarat and Adichanallur in TN

Sergey Soygu, Russian defence minister, has subbed #America like eight times in his speech. FTT, he's right. America has lost the war in #Afghanistan.

"#Africa is of particular concern because our Western partners have not allowed them to stabilise economically."

Is he right? Image
He just reminded us that the Soviet Union supported many liberation movements with #Africa, and has offered a hand of friendship.

P.S I hate it when they (and they're all guilty of this) of talking of Africa as a country.
Another direct sub: "we will sign agreements with our African friends without imposing our ways on you like our Western partners do."

Wow! Big news!!

With this operation, #Encrochat #Sky #MPC & other encrypted networks being infiltrated, does this mean the end of #Drugs #Corruption #OrganisedCrime ?🤔


It's a brilliant operation BUT may have unintended consequences

A #Thread
I got sucked into doing some amateur study of the economy of drug trafficking because of brilliant TV shows.

When you study the numbers, understand the geo-politics, social, criminal & financial elements behind the global industry... you realise just how powerful it really is!🎬
If you trace the industry from;
- Areas of production
- Transit routes
- End Markets

Then look at the money flows;
-Peso exchange
-Hawala networks
-Trade based money laundering

Then the operational groups🧐

It's mind blowing in scale & influence @InSightCrime 🤯

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.
Not a year passed in which #India did not take 50 million sesterces away from #Rome.

I had asked @EthzemaLeader the following question after his controversial/deliberate remark against #IslamicBanking/#InterestFreeBanking (as it is called here in #Ethiopia). I have today watched another video of him where he tried to "Clarify" but continued to insult us more.
First of all, he has tried to defend that he is not an #islamophobe by bringing #Muslim audience & that his grandmother was a Muslim. This is the same reply many persons give when they are confronted with their #Islamophobic attitude. #BerhanuNega is no different.
You can have #Muslim parents, lived with #Muslims fasted #Ramadan, eaten #Dates or #Sambusa etc you can still be an #islamophobe. One can claim to be a Muslim but in reality be the most #Islamophobic person that hates #Muslims and #Islam. It is a lame excuse!

"Japan cannot protect its own peace and security by simply serving as a part of Washington’s strategy", “Tokyo’s stance toward China cannot mirror that of Washington's”… This @AJWasahi editorial is right in recognizing the blindness of @sugawitter 's #China policy.
The China interests of Japan and the U.S. might have converging parts, but are not completely in line with each other. As this editorial in @AJWasahi wrote, “the fact remains that #Japan and #China are neighbors with strong, interdependent economic relations.”
Instead of following in lockstep with the U.S., what #Japan should do is perhaps to think about what it can do, as a regional power in #Asia , to mitigate possible conflicts between #US and China and contribute to Asia’s peace and prosperity.

1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

#Russia, #US,and the fight over #SputnikV
#Putin made interesting comments that are important to understand how #Russia reads the situation with promotion of #vaccines
1. #Putin: "Global market for #COVID19 vaccines is worth $100 billion. We see how competitors of our producers behave: they enter a country [that is in need for vaccines],sell a small batch of vaccines on a discounted price but condition the sale with that...
2. "...the country will only purchase that vaccine from that producer in the future. So, there’s a real fight for the markets".
