From my friend Barbara. Congratulations to PM Bennett, we will surely miss the Legendary PM, Bibi Netanyahu, as we continue to Pray for the Salvation, Peace, Safety, Wellness, Protection of Israel 🙏!

Here is Mr. Bennett surrounded by Israeli-Arabs sitting right alongside him
as Team members in the Knesset. Although this is very historical( still worried about Israel’s wellbeing/security through all this, and maybe these are lines are being drawn towards the Return of Christ), Israel remains the #MOST_Civilized, #Democratic State in the Middle East,
to date! So, for everyone who accuses Israel as “Terrorist”, an “Apartheid State”, here is your Opened shame, because Israel has always maintained civility, peace toward Her Arabic Brothers and Sisters!

From TG

From a Marine at #CIA headquarters

The #US Marines raided the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Langley, Virginia this past weekend. The Marines retrieved a lot of evidence implicating well-known politicians of embezzlement, election rigging, identity fraud.....
......assassination plots, murders, domestic terrorism, and pedophilia. I’ve listed the following 23 ITEMS to pique your interest and summarize what’s happening:
(Cont’d)
ITEM 1: CIA headquarters has been raided, the #FBI has been neutralized, and $35 trillion of U.S. Treasury embezzled funds have been recovered. About $100 trillion has been embezzled by the Bushs and the Clintons.

"Feel free to copy/paste, I did." ~ @lex31555

Here it is, abridged, and with pictures:

"I have listened to everyone else’s hatred, rhetoric and outright lies for the last four years, so now I am having my say.
Let me be clear, I am not a Biden fan.

But what has Trump done in the past 4 years?

(you fill in the blanks, there is are ample resources. Trump has been called every name in the book, and they're making up new ones all the time)
The "____" in the White House brokered four Middle East Peace Accords, something that 71 years of political intervention and endless war failed to produce.

It thus become more important than ever before to document instances of free speech violations by the state and build a repository from all over the country.

1| Americans should contemplate long and hard why one of Trump's most burning tasks, right before he leaves office, is the targeting of a #HumanRights movement lead by an #indigenous people on the other side of the globe 👇

2| Let's first recall that the Palestinian-lead global BDS movement has already been designated by the @UN as a #HumanRightsDefenders movement, whose speech is protected.

3| @amnesty chimes in with a bit of uncharacteristic & very welcome political analysis:
"This is simply the latest attack from a US government determined to undermine the universality of human rights and the global fight against racism and discrimination, including antisemitism."

🔶Muhammad Ali Jinnah conceived #Pakistan as an Ideal #Democratic State & stated that constitution of #Pakistan should embody essential principles of #Islam,because religion’s idealism preaches #democracy , #EqualityForAll , #justice #fairplay for All.
🔶However, harsh realities of ‘Idea of Pakistan : An Ideal #MuslimState’, contrary to ideals of Md Ali #Jinnah, have emerged to make it a State which, in words of Hussain Haqqani, “is a volatile, semi-authoritarian, national security state, which failed to run itself .
🔶Consistently & Under Constitutional order or rule of law”. #Pakistan has become a greedy state, unsatisfied with the status quo, with the very intentions of incapable #leaders & with intent of #crorecommanders , #Pizzagenerals , #Twittergenerals

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇

In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

The Vote Leave Connection to #CambridgeAnalytica
In the #UK, these revelations should prompt urgent questions not just about exactly what services were provided by Cambridge Analytica and associated companies to #Brexit campaigners, but also about the increasing vulnerability
of the #democratic process to #manipulation by unscrupulous #digital operatives.

As Vote Leave’s campaign director, Dominic #Cummings spent 98% of his campaign budget on digital advertising and #voter #targeting.
Fact, he overspent on Vote Leave’s legally allowed budget by illicitly funnelling £675,000 through #BeLeave, another pro-#Brexit group.

Altogether, Cambridge Analytica’s Canadian sister company AIQ took payments of nearly £3,657,000 from Vote Leave and associated campaign groups

N.Ireland is once again the rope in the UK/EU tug of war.

(we've been here before, several times 🙄😩)

Both claim to be acting on the grounds of the Good Friday/Belfast 1998 Agreement.
🇬🇧🇪🇺🇮🇪

Both have a point…

But it’s complicated.

A twitter thread.
#Brexit #GFA
1/13
The Belfast/Good Friday #Agreement has 3 strands.

These strands represent the lines of division that gave rise to the #conflict:
* unionist/nationalist within NI,
* north/south across the border, &
* British/Irish.

The B/GFA formalised cooperation across these lines.
2/13
Crucially, all are #interdependent.

Underpinning it all is the British-Irish relationship
🇬🇧🇮🇪

That relationship was improved & became closer as a result of being ‘partners in the EU’ 🇪🇺

The EU was also a go-to model for some of that cross-border & multilevel cooperation.

@JoeBiden has made the narrative, ‘orange-man-bad’ the centerpiece of his campaign. That’s basically his whole message. We can’t take 4 more years of @realDonaldTrump!

With the help of a complicit media, that message is what is inciting violence.

#FakeNews #EnemyOfThePeople
#Democratic leaders are in a better position to calm their own constituencies. @SenSchumer @SpeakerPelosi @Ilhan @AyannaPressley @RashidaTlaib @AOC and their MSM pals have NEVER, EVER had one kind word for @realDonaldTrump for almost 4 years!

Now it’s up to @POTUS to undo that?
MSM anti-Trump activism.
Hollywood anti-Trump vitriol.
DNC Mayors anti-Trump rhetoric.
DNC members of Congress anti-Trump harassment.
Word on the street ‘orange-man-bad’.
@JoeBiden’s entire campaign message anti-Trump.
But @realDonaldTrump is inciting violence?
‘Cmon man!

The Unity Task Force set #democratic policy & legislative goals on #ClimateChange, healthcare, the economy & #jobs, criminal justice, education, & #immigration. vox.com/21317850/joe-b…
@AOC & @JohnKerry chaired Unity Task Force on the #ClimateCrisis. It set a national goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions for all new buildings by 2030 & eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2035, in addition to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
"I think we actually made far more progress than I think I even anticipated,” Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash told Vox, because many of the advisers on #ClimateChange nominated by #Biden were "equally amenable to ambitious action as many people on the #Bernie side.”
