1. THREAD: Our new paper analyzing the impact of #counterterrorism and #PVE on the @UN system is live.

Real friends will read all 25,000 words today - cheers! 😎

The rest of you - jeers! - but here is a quick thread to tell you what you need to know:

2. When @atomicsentences and I started this research in September 2019 – in a very different world - we set out to analyse whether the war on terror posed an existential threat to the UNs ability to uphold its Charter.

Was the UNs DNA was being recoded by counterterrorism? Image
3. So we tried to assess the current impacts and future threats for the UN System - and then we tried to come up with some answers of what can and should be done about it!

We read and read, and spoke to a lot of people.

What did we find?

It’s easy to joke about the criminalisation of #antifa, but UK folks might have missed new legislation here that's massively expanding surveillance, police powers + sentencing for terrorism suspects. Let’s talk about the new #CounterTerrorism and Sentencing bill. [THREAD 1/]
The bill ends the prospect of early release for serious terrorism offenders and widens the list of offences classed as terror-related to ensure they carry tougher sentences. It also increases the maximum penalty for membership of a proscribed organisation from 10 to 14 years. 2/
It includes a £90 million funding boost for counter-terrrorism police + an extension of maximum prison sentences across the board. With UK prisons increasingly run for profit by private companies, it’s unlikely this is borne purely out of a concern for public safety. 3/

How do #FBI #InfraGard #DHS & #FusionCenter personnel engage in federal felonies & domestic #terrorism on a daily basis?

1) Place innocent Americans on a secretive, extrajudicial watch-list without any due process.
2) They then engage in slander campaigns (Hoax Threats) against the extrajudicially watch-listed individuals in order to mobilize family members, neighbors & employees at commercial locations to engage in acts of aggression, assault & overt stalking.
3) According to the #FBI "Hoax Threats are Serious Federal Crimes," much like yelling fire (when there isn't one) in a crowded theater.

Per the FBI "Hoax threats are not a joke, and they can have devastating consequences .... Hoax threats ... [are disruptive and] ....

Civilians in the #Sahel are increasingly threatened not only by radical armed actors and ethnic self-defence groups but similarly by national armed forces in the name of #counterterrorism. Thread on a few recent publications on #Mali #Niger #Burkina:
1/ This piece underlines recent summary executions and enforced disappearances by Sahelian National security forces in the name of counterterrorism. liberation.fr/planete/2020/0…
2/ As allies of #Barkhane – and trained by #EUTM #EUCAP, Sahelian national security forces thereby contribute to a dynamic that fuels recruitment of radical actors.

Welcome to the Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. With Congress on recess this week, we are going to do things a bit differently this week. We are going to take a dive into #McConnellsGraveyard.

#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.

NOT TRUE.

What you’ll find below are 30 bills of the 300+ that #McConnell has stalled in the Senate.

Pompeo, in his Fox interview, made a few interesting statements on Afghanistan. 1) after the wedding attack, simply said US will continue to "decimate" "radical Islamic terrorism" "in a way that is smart and doesn’t require excess sacrifice on behalf of the American people." /1
That's a sensible balance, more than "end forever wars," signaling under Trump the US is not completely withdrawing from anywhere. and 2) Pompeo stated Trump's goal clear: reduce cost (money and lives) but ensure a posture that can reduce homeland attacks from Afgh. 2/
"Those twin goals are what the President set out for my team and for the Department of Defense. We’re working towards them. I am confident that we can achieve them." /3

(1) The #FBI has a Tip Line at which you can speak to a live representative.

1-800-225 5324

Like any bureaucracy you have friendly people and not so friendly people.

When I relayed to one woman what I had been experiencing at the hands of corrupt #FBI & #JTTF personnel ....
(2) she responded "I can tell you that the #FBI does not operate like that."

I responded to her that there were decent people working in the #FBI, and that someone like her would not be aware of extrajudicial operations due to compartmentalization and the illegality ....
(3) of such protocols. She took the report, but was not too receptive.

Since I am having another issue with the #FBI #JTTF looting me for nearly $100,000 from a bank (via a bogus "emergency letter" or "National Security Letter" gained by lying to a federal magistrate/judge) ....

#DHS #FBI #JTTF #InfraGard #NSA are engaged in Domestic "Black Operations" on US soil against innocent civilians.

This #terrorism is coordinated thru #DHS-funded #ThreatFusionCenters
(2) In my next complaint to #ODNI #DHS, I will be sure to reference the fact that #DHS-funded #SurveillanceRolePlayers regularly use children as props and human shields. This constitutes child endangerment & human trafficking.
(3) Obama's #OperationHammer (running in perpetuity) is combined with tenets of the Phoenix Operation, #Stasi #Zersetzung tactics, and tenets of Stalin's #PsychiatricProtocol, in which perceived political opposition, was labeled as "mentally ill," in order to trigger ....

1. JUST IN: @PDRMsia #counterterrorism detained 12 Filipinos & 1 Malaysian linked to Abu Sayyaf and Maute/ Royal Sulu Force in...none other than my home territory, Sabah. It keeps getting interesting.
3. The RSF members sold membership cards among Filipinos in Sabah. Talk about daring. They ran back to southern Philippines after losing 2013 battle but came back to Sabah Nov 2018 to reactivate RSF. Malaysian troops in 2013 standoff pictured.
2. On Mar 11, @PDRMsia detained 5 Filipinos, 1 Malaysian who fought with Maute in Marawi 2017. Also harboured Maute elements & some Mid East men in Sabah. Also arrested 2 Royal Sulu Force (RSF) members involved in 2013 eastern Sabah attacks.

(1) .@SecNielsen does .@POTUS .@realDonaldTrump know the details abt the #PoliticalTargeting protocol run thru #DHS-funded #ThreatFusionCenters & how #SurveillanceRolePlayers use children as props?

Don't repetitious attacks on conservatives to instill fear constitute #terrorism?
(2) Kirstjen, do you remember when you were chased out of that restaurant - how terrorizing it was, how it made you feel? Imagine being politically targeted Kirstjen, with never a promise of relief or a "day in court."

The extrajudicial targeting protocol is run thru #DHS-funded
(3) #ThreatFusionCenters with collusion of #FBI #JTTF #InfraGard #FEMA #DHS #DOJ #NSA, as I am sure you know Kirstjen.

#DHS #FBI label innocent civilians as #Threats and #terrorists & then #DOJ #DHS fund private contractors to engage in a vicious counter-terrorism #targeting

THREAD: #1 Police arrested 8 men including 7 foreigners for alleged connection to an Islamic learning centre in Perlis state allegedly related to a #terrorism group in Yemen and spreading salafi jihadi ideology in Southeast Asia, Malaysia police chief @Fuzi_Harun said today.
#2 Arrests thanks to info from foreign intelligence agencies. The suspects - foreign instructor & students at the Islamic learning centre, are connected to a madrasa in Dammaj, Yemen, founded by Sheikh Muqbil bin Hadi al-Wadi'i, an extreme salafi jihadi ideologue.
#3 The Yemeni madrasa is a staunch believer in salafi jihadi ideology which makes it permissible to kill non-Muslims & Muslims not in line with them, also labels democracy as "toghut", says Malaysian IGP @Fuzi_Harun.

The amount of crap and baseless claims that #AssociatedPress #AP is filling in into the mainstream media is unbelievable, especially regarding #Yemen !
#UAE’s heroic #counterterrorism operations in #Yemen against #AlQaeda are well spoken and praised by the #US Forces; but our friends at #AP are so happy to debunk those live operations and efforts easily !
US Forces and defense sec. didn’t call us the #LittleSparta for no reason; we fought like warriors in the face of #Iran’s terror, presented sacrifices of our men, saved poor #Yemeni children, and rebuilt the south of #Yemen !
#AP needs to learn ...
