US could do a separate trade deal with #Mexico and a subsequent agreement with #Canada later, @POTUS says during Cabinet meeting. #NAFTA
Asked if #Russia is still targeting the US, @POTUS shakes his head and says "no."
Nobody has been as tough on #Russia as he has, says @POTUS. "I think President Putin knows that better than anybody," including the media, and Putin "is not happy about it."

💥Trump allegedly conspires with the Russians to fix the 2016 election.

➡️That's the crime.

⚡️Then he accuses Obama of not doing anything about the crime he committed (allegedly) in the last 2 mos of Obama's presidency?

🤪If it sounds insane, it is.
➡️Answer: Because the Obama administration was investigating. And the Mueller team is still investigating.

😬Gird your loins.
💥This, from someone [Trump] who once sued a comedian [Bill Maher] for $5 million for intimating that his ancestry might include an orangutan.

ℹ️He initiated the lawsuit in February 2013 and dropped it in April 2013.

Reposting this: Firstly, because the first photo is falsely attributed to the intentional slaugther of the bison in the US when, in fact, it was taken in what is now Regina, and lastly, to dispel a narrative that tribes were "over hunting"~ #101 stuff
This photo is Regina, Sask, 1878
Saskatoon Public Library Archives
The culling was done here, in what is now Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta. The last northern herd was wiped out in the 1860s. That sparked a conflict between the Cree and Blackfoot as the Cree had to push west to find the last herds. It was manifest genocide policy. #canada

The #US threatened to cut off aid to any country that introduced a #UN resolution promoting breast feeding.
Many folded. #Russia stepped in & introduced the resolution. The #US backed down.

When #US failed, it turned to threats. #Ecuador was the 1st to find itself in the cross hairs
#Americans were blunt: If #Ecuador refused to drop the resolution-#US would unleash punishing trade measures & withdraw crucial military aid-The #Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced
The showdown over breast feeding was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from #USA.

A letter from #Gaza to @JustinTrudeau
Dear Prime Minister,
We hope this letter finds you and the #Canadian people well.
Dear Mr Prime Minister, why do you support #Israel's brutal assault on Gaza?

Mr President @JustinTrudeau
We have witnessed your commitment to freedom & diversity. We have also followed with enthusiasm your activities, especially those that reflect your humanity, openness, support for civil rights & struggle against racism
We have seen you engage with different communities-#Arabs, #Hindus, #Jews, #Muslims & others-during their holidays. We have also deeply appreciated #Canada's generous support for the #Palestinian people & #Palestinian refugees, through the #UN Relief & Works Agency @UNRWA

Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report
wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic

Le déraillement du #G7Charlevoix par #Trump démontre 1 trait central du président US. Il n'est pas"idiot"OU machiavélique selon le dilemme établi depuis son entrée en politique en juin 2015. Il paraît très cohérent idéologiquement ET fort naïf dans la relation interpersonnelle...
2) #Trump applique 1 doctrine ancienne,déjà exposée en 1987 dans sa fameuse pub au @nytimes:
a) refus de toute régulation de l'ordre international par les #EtatsUnis, trop coûteuse;
b) refus des alliances contraignantes
c) priorité à 1 développement centré sur le territoire US
3) Car reprenons ce texte de #Trump en 1987 qui est son 1er"manifeste"- publicitaire, quel présage- de politique étrangère...et tout le #G7Charlevoix, ainsi que sa mise en déroute- y est contenu...

Que retenir finalement du #G7Charlevoix que #Trump quitte ce matin en avance après à peine 24h de présence?Qu'il avance sur la remise en cause d'1 ordre mondial libéral régulé par les #EtatsUnis depuis 1945 et qu'il se moque toujours des salamalecs.#thread washingtonpost.com/world/national…
2) En effet, on a vu de nouveau le président #Macron et le PM canadien #Trudeau revenir à la stratégie #compol des démonstrations d'affection et de dialogue amical, mises en scène pour l'opinion publique, afin de fléchir 1 #Trump qui les accueille poliment SANS s'engager sur rien
3) #Trump plaisante avec (sur?) #Trudeau, complimente-à l'excès- le président #Macron sur leur relation très spéciale, il est comme 1 poisson dans l'eau avec ses jeux de dupes face caméra, qui ne l'impliquent pas...

Do @AdamSchiffCA and @SenWarren care to comment about their buddy #SamanthaBee calling a woman, mother and public servant a “feckless c**t” and telling her to dress like a hooker? The same woman who’s currently working on #PrisonReform cc: @TBSNetwork @TheDemocrats
Is that your office #AdamSchiff as your constituent please answer why this is okay? Though it’s something you probably wish you could say yourself that’s why I’m voting for @Johnny_Congress #FullOfSchiff #TakeBackCalifornia
Dear @BarackObama and @madeleine do you condone calling women “feckless c**ts” and telling them to dress like hookers? #AskingForAFriend

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga…

Today, @CER_EU publishes my piece on #Brexit and #JHA. I have been looking at this for 1,5 years so I hope I did not make too many mistakes (links to piece - cer.eu/publications/a… and opens thread)
At the outset of the #Brexit process, most people assumed that a deal on #police and #judicial co-operation was easier to get than one on #trade. Time has shown this is not the case. Ongoing co-op on #JHA is one of the few items yet to be agreed on #withdrawal deal. Why?
Well, because the #EU and #UK's opening positions in the #negotiation are incompatible: Britain wants a #bespoke agreement with the EU, a la #Schengen, but is not willing to accept #ECJ or #EUCharter. EU wants to replicate existing models. What to do?

Yazidi mother opens up about escape from Islamic State, building a life in Canada
(1/ ) #YazidiPlight #Iraq #Canada
At 18, when she was eight months pregnant, Faeza Mejo was captured in August 2014 by members of the Islamic State terror group when she, her husband and his family tried to flee from the invaders in northern Iraq.
(2/ )#YazidiGenocide #Sinjar #Iraq
Faeza was separated from her husband and taken to a place where about 50 other young #Yazidi women and girls were held. She soon learned they were in a warehouse and they were the goods to be sold, and she would literally be marked for life.

1) Un petit guide sur les #SocialJusticeWarriors (#SJW) suite aux événements de #Tolbiac et tout le marasme qui s’en est suivi, parce que je suis assez étonnée de la méconnaissance des gens en #France et sur #Twitter. Il reste central aux #US depuis quelques années. (à dérouler)
2) Car oui, comme beaucoup de mouvements culturels celui-ci nous vient directement des US et du #Canada, et met la lutte militante pour le progrès social en son centre, tjs sous le prisme d’un rapport de force à une minorité : #genre, #handicap, #racisme, #sexisme, etc…
3) Donc si t’es twittos #anglophone tu vas sûrement rigoler, parce que tu t’es déjà retrouvé embourbé dans des échanges impossibles et que tu connais exactement le sujet… Tu pourras donc passer ton chemin, car tu n’apprendras rien de spé.

BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.

Ministerio de Economía y Finanzas de #Panamá adopta resolución que obliga a instituciones públicas y privadas a crear procedimientos de debida diligencia para limitar operaciones de 55 funcionarios del gobierno de #Venezuela y 16 empresas relacionadas.
Las 55 personas ligadas al régimen de Nicolás Maduro (ver fotos con la lista completa) son consideradas por Panamá como "de alto riesgo en materia de blanqueo de capitales, financiamiento del terrorismo y financiamiento de la proliferación de armas de destrucción masiva".
#Panamá se convierte en el primer país de Latinoamérica que adopta formalmente medidas concretas contra funcionarios del gobierno de #Venezuela. El efecto de la inclusión en esta lista es prácticamente equivalente a un congelamiento de activos.

How #Trump became a #Soviet/#Russian Agent
1. #Trump's first known visit to #Soviet and #Moscow in 1987 looks to be part of a pattern. The #SteeleDossier says that the #Kremlin had been cultivating# Trump for “at least five years” before 2016 elections, meaning it asserts a beginning in 2011 or 2012.
2.The #SovietUnion was interested in #Trump three decades earlier. The top level of the #Soviet diplomatic service arranged his 1987 #Moscow visit.

1) Today Whistle-blower #ChristopherWylie appeared in front of #British #MPs.

Did he inadvertently connect the dots on the very strange and developing relationship between the #democrat party and #MuslimBrotherhood?

2) Wylie was testifying about his work for #CambridgeAnalytica and while testifying, he revealed his predecessor was found dead in a hotel room... in #Kenya. Why does that matter?
