Last Thursday (s. ; or for the full live stream, s. ), @SevimDagdelen from #DieLinke has discussed with @RaniaKhalek & @EugenePuryear esp. the recently decided & billion-dollar rearmament of the German #Bundeswehr... a result of the #RussianFederation's military invasion of #Ukraine, as officially justified by the #GermanFederalGovernment. A recommendable interview! Besides her opposition to such rearmament & the associated fundamental departure...
...from the so-called „#Entspannungspolitik“ established by #WillyBrand & #EgonBahr for #Germany's relationship with the #USSR (& also its territorially largest & politically strongest successor state in the form of the #RussianFederation),...

Gen. Colin Powell Lessons on Civility in Public Life and Politically Diverse Friendships - Some reflections in early grief. #ColinPowell #EmilyPosts…
Gen. Colin Powell always said about politics, “It’s just business.” He meant, it’s not personal.

It helps to make political issues “just business” because it takes out the emotional charge.

#ColinPowell #civility thread (2/)
The public knows Colin Powell could be mean and judgemental because of his hacked emails.

It was a shame his privacy was taken.

He was so careful in public life to moderate his speech and his writing. He didn’t inflame people with words.

The story of Colin Powell is unfortunately one of tragedy and failure, not struggle and success.

It’s true he was a senior officer at time when there few black senior officers.

It’s true he become a civilian leader at time there were no black civilian leaders in the US.

When called upon to actually ‘lead’ Powell failed.

More correctly, he showed his true character.
By going to the UN and knowingly making a false case for war, and then afterwards shrugging it off by the simple ‘I follow orders. It’s what I do’ he revealed his true nature, and the reason for his success.

⚠️CANCER PATIENTS NEED MODERNA VACCINE—reminder to #MultipleMyeloma & other cancer patients—#Moderna vaccine offers MUCH stronger protection against #COVID19 than Pfizer. Antibody response much higher with the 100 mcg Moderna dose vs 30 mcg Pfizer dose. 🧵…
2) Why is this relevant? #ColinPowell had #MultipleMyeloma. It’s a cancer of plasma cells that make antibodies. Hence MM patients need extra protection. See thread 🧵 below.
3) Just how much did Moderna increase IgG antibodies against #COVID19 after 2 shots? 60x versus baseline. Pfizer only increased roughly ~10x. Thus, 2 shots of the 100 mcg #Moderna is about 6x higher antibody response than 2 shots of the 30 mcg Pfizer.…

He's a Fucking War Criminal, a Torturer, a Liar & a Murderer!!!
That Fucker lied us in the #IraqWar at the U.N. holding a Vial saying Saddam Hussein has "Weapons of Mass Destruction" & @TheBushCenter said, "The US cannot wait for final proof in the form of a mushroom cloud..."
#ColinPowell held up a Vial of what he claims as "Yellow Cake Uranium" cynically, as the Bush Administration without any Evidence to support their statement, went in & overthrew #Iraq which lead the death of 100,000 or more deaths of Iraqi People! Women, Men, Elderly, Children...
Colin Powell's wrongful Lie lead us into an Illegal & Offensive War by his Actions!! This Cocksucker isn't an Inspirational Hero @JamaalBowmanNY! Do you call Mass Murders & Torturing of Civilians who did nothing wrong an "Inspiration"? What your doing is rehabilitating people...

📍Folks need to know this—#ColinPowell had multiple myeloma—a cancer of plasma cells that **makes antibodies**. Thus, vaccines are weaker in myeloma patients because we kill the cells that make antibodies with our myeloma treatments. Please vax to protect others.🧵

HT @VincentRK
2) Where are the studies proving this? Myeloma patients are extremely weak responders to vaccines because we killed off the immune cells to treat the cancer.
3) myeloma cancer patients have very very weak immune systems, and well known to have high COVID mortality already because of it.

“I get called a war criminal every day.” Alistair Campbell

Blair conspired with Bush to illegally take us to war in Iraq supported by Campbell, Straw, Hoon, Cheney, Rumsfeld etc.

Well done @MikePrysner, partner of @AbbyMartin, for not letting us forget
War isn’t a human instinct

It’s a highly planned & cooperative form of theft

This form of theft began 10,000 years ago when the harvesters of wheat created a surplus & the nomads rose out of the desert to rob them of what the could not themselves provide
Here’s an explanation of the link between war & the #ClimateCrisis..,in the form of interpretive dance

The #US military = the world's biggest polluter

“We fight these wars for oil, but if we didn’t fight these wars, we wouldn’t need the oil. Not as much”

Thread sulla seconda giornata della #DemocraticConvention. Se si escludono #AOC, Stacey Abrams e il coro di giovani eletti che legge il keynote speech, ieri è stato il giorno del passato e della rassicurazione. Vediamo cosa significa (la soluzione in fondo al thread) /1
#Clinton ha demolito Trump da par suo (è sempre stato un grande oratore, anche quando non parla da un podio) e tranquillizzato sui piani di Biden: "Build Back Better" contro "Blame, Bully e Belittle" (biasimare, bullizzare, sminuire) di Trump/2
#CindyMcCain, vedova di John, ricorda l'amicizia tra i due. Un modo per segnalare la volontà di Biden di tornare a un clima politico decente dopo un deterioramento progressivo che tocca l'apice con Trump. Allo stato una "mission impossible"/3

Hoy en #WashingtonDC las protestas continuaron aunque ya no tan numerosas ni extendidas como ayer.

A pesar de la enorme participación no ha habido arrestos ni hechos de violencia o disturbios.

#BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloyd #icantbreathe
El ex candidato presidencial republicano Mitt Romney participó en las protestas...
Romney dijo que participaba para terminar con la violencia y la brutalidad y asegurarse que la gente entendiera que “las vidas de los negros importan” #BlackLivesMatter.

Two+ months since I wrote this. Where are we now? A (long) thread about protest, statues, events as transformations of structures. Plus #MMT and regime change!!…
Thinking about the protests and two other things I saw on here last week:
1) huge marches didn’t prevent Iraq War;
2) Do we know what would satisfy the protesters?
(plus, of course, the French Revolution)
3/ Iraq (or Brexit) marches are not good analogies, I think. Those were attempts to sway small group of national lawmakers, get them to NOT do something planned. When invasion/Brexit happened anyway, protests had “failed.”

"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."
