#BioWarfare Preparedness should be a Top Priority

But this would include Incentives to De-Centralize away from the Over-Crowded Mass Transit Cities and the #DemocratCorruptionNetworks strongly OPPOSE this

Single Points of Failure are Attack Points during a War

The model of a De-Centralized (or Less Centralized) Mesh Network with Redundant Capabilities is Vital to Weathering the Storm of a Blitzkrieg Attack
The Nature of War is Changing

Old Warfare Methods are still available

But there are NEW Methods that are available

Access is variable

Some methods only available to big players
But increasingly the IED Terrorist Model is expanding to New Tools

Here's May mid-month home builder channel check I hinted at earlier. Builders are pushing prices w/little pushback, though some starting. Some builders are using price escalators & highest/best offer. Many limiting pre-sales, shifting to spec, & pricing home later in build cycle.
#Dallas builder: “Not selling build jobs in May, starting specs only, and not selling until drywall. Costs are too out of control for us to take the inflation risk on build jobs. So sales are way down.”
#SanAntonio builder: “Only selling specs at Sheetrock stage. Last month, it was frame stage.”

Some interesting housing color from mid-April around the country home builder channel check. Bunch of market commentary to follow...will try to hit most top markets.
#SaltLakeCity home builder mid-April color: “Still have 10x buyers to available homes to buy. Went to 'highest/ best' offer system March 1st & offers over asking price are shocking. Most offers are 10+% over ask, that's after raised base prices $10K to $20K+ with each release.”
#Austin home builder mid-April color: “Super high demand. Volume controlled with release process, otherwise would be unbearable. Some price increases are $100K between releases.”

Thread coming on setting up your @IPLFantasy team for the first match.
To consider:
Match 1 #MIvRCB
MI have a 3 match gap between their next nd RCB have a 4 match gap. It won't be wise to carry RCB players to their next match, but u can carry a couple of MI players to their next.
A max of 2 each from MI nd RCB should be enough.
Match 2 #CSKvDC
CSK have a 5 match gap between their next nd DC have a 4 match gap between their next. A max of 1 from each team should be enough nd we'll also be having a free uncapped transfer for this match. The players u select for this match should be sure starters.

Apariciones de #Tintin, o de personajes y cosas de #Tintín en otros cómics. Una pequeña recopilación, no pretendo ser ni sistematico ni exhaustivo porque esto es inabarcable, pero la comparto con vosotros. Si alguien tiene más que no sean éstas, se agradecen las aportaciones.
Para empezar, los dibujados o firmados al menos por el mismo #Hergé. En estas dos portadas de Quique y Flupi, personajes también de Hergé, aparecen Tintín y #Milú, la cara que ponen en el cuadro en el de la izquierda es impagable :D ImageImage
Otro Tintín dibujado por Hergé, en Los Cuatro Ases y la Vaca Sagrada de #GeorgesChaulet y #FrançoisCraenhals. Se publicaban en la Revista Tintín y el mismo Hergé dibujó a su personaje para esta aparición. Image

After 5 years investigating #Kremlin influence in the US, and talking with many experts including @Billbrowder @anders_aslund @MarkWarner, @Natalia_Budaeva @vkaramurza, it’s clear the US was targeted by some of the same people, & money sources that led to #Brexit.
It’s a complex architecture, but there is a definite link. If you look at the people who funded the #Leave campaign who’ve been closely associated with efforts in the US to foment discontent in the political parties, conspiracy theories and; how so many people minimal means...
Made it to #DC to participate in the #CapitolRiot on Jan. 6th, and you follow the money and idea trail, it takes you back to a some of the same people.

I talked to #SuzieDawson, when I was down in #DC, dealing w/#Action4Assange placing me in dangerous situations, where they were picking fights to get attention w/neighbors & loudly discussing drug use, etc...SUZIE *AGREED w/ME* that this group was acting shady. #PanQuake
I had multiple conversations with #SuzieDawson about #Action4Assange's poor behavior at #DC Sept trip...Suzie compared their behavior to what she experienced in #NewZealand's #OccupyWallStreet, where groups had sabotaged events. She agreed I should leave early.

About a wk later, #SuzieDawson encouraged me to post about a "teaser" article...which I did, at first, to support her excellent work. Image how surprised I felt, when her article revealed using #Action4Assange as "trusted witnesses"...after we'd agreed they were acting sketchy.

When I was down in #DC with #Action4Assange & this group was playing games & asking me if every person who approached our group was "a fed"...I asked Steve, Kimber, & Andrew if they had ever been targeted. They all looked at me blank-faced. lol
Finally, after some discomfort, #Action4Assange's Andrew offers up that he *thinks* he may have been targeted...I ask what happened...he tells a vague story about an abandoned car parked outside he office. lolol
I asked the others if anything odd had ever happened to them, they all sort of shrugged and had nothing to say.

Here are the founders of #Action4Assange so *worried* about "feds"--that in between announcing loudly they plan to do drugs--allegedly--most had not been targeted. 😹

Impeachment officer details the case against Trump as the second trial begins

“... That being a despot, drunk with power, trying to keep his grip on power and using the people of this country to try and stage an insurrection."

Trump has engaged in a prolonged effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election and spent months spreading disinformation and the results falsely claiming that he had won by a landslide," she explained. "He stated it would be illegitimate to accept those results”


He brought individuals to #DC on Jan. 6

[It] was an extremely important date in his mind and in our Constitution's time, because there was a time where the entire body of Congress along with the VP would be present at the Capitol to fulfill our duties
