Before taking off for D.C, I was interrogated by Polish media (👇) on what is to be expected from the NATO Summit in Madrid. Generally, based on what I hear, the summit will be missed opportunity. So, I am not impressed and here a🧵explaining why it is so in English 1/
The @NATO summit in Madrid will be dominated by political procrastination. Instead of a new vision for deterring #Russia – which could have been called the #Biden doctrine – NATO’s response to Russian aggression in #Ukraine will be short term routine. This is a mistake. 2/
We will likely hear 1) there’s no need to change anything in NATO posture because Russians’ miserable military performance against Ukraine indicates Russia threat is overrated; 2) NATO is so good in quick deployment of light infantry (paratroopers) it can do it anytime. 3/

🇺🇸 Alors que les Etats conservateurs américains se précipitent pour interdire l'avortement après l'arrêt de la #CourSupreme qui a annulé ce droit au niveau fédéral, la lutte autour de l'IVG se déplace déjà sur un autre terrain: celui des pilules abortives #AFP Image
Limitée dans ce qu'elle peut faire, l'administration #Biden va se concentrer sur l'élargissement de l'accès à ces pilules aux femmes vivant dans des Etats où l'avortement est interdit ou très restreint #AFP Image
Mais il est plus que probable que certains de ces Etats ainsi que de puissants groupes conservateurs aillent en justice pour tenter de bannir leur utilisation #AFP Image

Juste @washingtonpost.
La victoire de #Biden, hâtivement dépeint en nouveau Roosevelt progressiste, n'était qu'1 sursaut sans majorité nette face à la menace démocratique de #Trump. Quand les conservateurs enquillent eux les victoires locales et en justice.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/…
2. On l'a écrit des dizaines de fois depuis 2 ans mais les faits sont là. Joe Biden est le 1er président démocrate récent à n'avoir pour le début de son 1er mandat aucune majorité nette dans les 2 chambres du Congrès, les républicains ayant gagné 14 sièges à la Chambre en 2020...
3...et l'absence de mandat législatif fédéral clair pour #JoeBiden, aggravée par les règles obsolètes du Sénat (filibuster/obstruction minoritaire), se double d'1 mainmise républicaine sur les législatures et exécutifs locaux depuis 1 décennie et de tribunaux repeuplés par #Trump

Ils l'ont fait.
La majorité conservatrice de la #CourSuprême vient de revirer la jurisprudence Roe/Casey sur le droit à l'#avortement. Qui n'est plus protégé par la Constitution.
Bouleversement historique majeur.
supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf…
2. La 1ère surprise de cette décision sur le droit à l'#avortement, bien prévisible après la fuite Alito- qui signe bien l'arrêt définitif- est que le juge en chef Roberts s'est rangé du côté de ses collègues conservateurs mais avec 1 opinion d'1 hypocrisie qui fera date...
3...le juge en chef Roberts désapprouve les 5 autres conservateurs pour être allé aussi loin que le revirement de la jurisprudence Roe/Casey mais il finit par se rallier à leur cause sur le cas précis du Mississippi soumis à leur décision dans cet arrêt Dobbs.

Thread: What are the Biden Administration’s choices to reduce oil and fuel prices? #OOTT #Oil

1- What has been done?
Asked OPEC members, US oil producers & refiners to increase production. All failed.

OPEC members were not interested. US producers & refiners cannot do so.
2- What are the current choices?
a- Restrict crude oil exports
b- Restrict fuel exports
c- Suspend environmental regulations temporarily
d- Suspend federal fuel tax
e- Remove sanctions on Iran & Venezuela
f- Resurrect relations with Saudi Arabia
g- Withdraw more from the SPR
3- None of the choices above can reduce shortages or lower prices meaningfully before the US mid-term elections. Only a recession would reduce fuel prices and allow for inventories to rise.

Regardless, a recession might flip both houses to republicans. Democrats are stuck!

Ah Mike Pence, "héros" de la démocratie qui résista si vaillamment...
Mais déclare hier soir sur #FoxNews que les démocrates doivent cesser d'instrumentaliser l'insurrection du 6 janvier et qu'il a quitté #Trump en termes amicaux à la fin de leur mandat.

2. #Pence a été le VP de #Trump pendant 4 ans, a accompagné et soutenu tous ses excès, outrances etc. Et n'a en rien renié son refus de reconnaître la victoire de #Biden. Jusqu'à ce qu'il lui demande de participer le 6 janvier à un coup d'Etat à la face du monde.
3. La "réhabilitation" politique de #Pence menée par la commission d'enquête et en particulier son amie conservatrice Liz Cheney est assez dérangeante de ce point de vue, car s'il a désapprouvé #Trump sur la méthode (refuser de compter les votes de certains grands électeurs)...

Thread: 18 June 2022: Day 115 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia has renewed its offensive around Izyum to try to encircle Severodonetsk

- Russian declared "humanitarian corridors" are likely to "manipulate the battlespace" as seen in Syria, and civilians trapped in Severodonetsk see them this way.
Interesting thread. The public messaging of #Russia and #China has become more overtly hostile to the #US-led world order; no reason to think the leaderships are not being honest about their views. Notable both see the collapse of the USSR as key.

Heute soll´s nicht um die #Ukraine gehen, sondern um #China , wobei der #UkraineKrieg da permanent mitschwingt.
Gleich 2 brisante Aspekte kamen zuletzt aus Fernost:
a) Peking definiert "nicht-kriegerischere Militäroperationen",
b) und warnt vor "Krieg ohne Zögern"
Thread👇
(1/25)
Die chinesische Regierung hat ein Gesetz verabschiedet, wonach chinesische Truppen ab nun in "nicht-kriegerischen Militäroperationen" eingesetzt werden können.
Das Wording ist brisant.
Es lässt extrem viel Spielraum für zukünftige chinesische Militäreinsätze offen.
(2/25)
Die naheliegende Interpretation ist natürlich, dass #Peking sich auf Konflikte vorbereitet, die es nicht als "Krieg" definieren muss, sondern "nur" als Militär- oder Friedensoperation oder Ähnliches.
An sich wäre das im geopolitischen Spiel nicht mal so ungewöhnlich...
