Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

I want to talk a minute about how #Brexit is viewed by most of the #Dutch here in the #Netherlands.

1/
The #Dutch are mostly bewildered by #Brexit and why anyone would want to leave.

We do have a small EU critical faction in parliament (PVV+FvD=32 seats out of 150), but 4/5ths of the electorate are either uncaring or moderately to rabidly pro EU.

home.noties.nl/peil/

2/
Our #economy stands to take quite a hit from Brexit. Up to a few percent, even.

economics.rabobank.com/publications/2…

This is seen as a betrayal by most #Dutch, who take the
health of our economy very seriously, especially after supporting Britain's liberal ideas in the #EU

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

El pasado Jul25, Maduro otorgó unos anuncios económicos enmarcados en un “programa de recuperación financiera”. En el presente hilo repasaremos los principales puntos en materia económica y analizaremos las posibles implicaciones de estas medidas. +Info 👉 goo.gl/Uet4mf
El mandatario indicó que ahora se suprimirán cinco ceros de la #moneda, en lugar de tres y que el cono monetario actual también se anulará; ambas medidas ahora quedaron pautadas para el 20 de agosto, aproximadamente veinte días después del anuncio.
Adicionalmente, para esa fecha entrarían en circulación monedas de 50 céntimos y de un (1) #BolivarSoberano, además de billetes con denominación de 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 y 500 bolívares. #money #Venezuela

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

Whether we like it or not, the so-called R-APC can't be discounted. They are part of the system and if we see realignments of parties like in 2014, they may win and Nigeria will, once again, be set back decades behind any serious country. I am not happy, just stating the fact.
Again, there is nothing like a single northern bloc, the minorities in N/Nigeria had suffered enough. And this time round, there is growing interest for ppl to get PVC and vote out a govt, they feel does not only marginalized them, but has shown zero interest in their well-being.
Another thing that may play into the hands of the opposition is, military campaigns against #BH is reduced to more than 70% in the raining season and there has been a steady surge in attacks in Dec. Jan. Feb. in the last four yrs. This season, coincides with campaigns elections?

#THREAD: We’ve said this before but for the life of us we can’t figure out why #Trump won’t give up this #TradeWar. The May jobs report was incredible and the #economy is booming. Now he’s threatening to torpedo all this work to get the economy humming because he’s pissed off
The smart political thing for #Trump and his #GOP allies facing re-election to do would be to run out the clock on this booming #economy all throughout the #Midterms2018 season and campaign hard on his anti-regulation, tax cutting economic policy and spike the football
In a survey conducted last fall, the Chicago Council on Public Affairs found that 72% of Americans thought trade is good for the U.S. economy, 78% thought it benefits consumers like themselves, and 57% thought it helps create jobs in the United States

Challenge Accepted. I have decided to Fact Check this thread full of outright lies, half truth and data misrepresentation. I will make 2013/2014 my base year for most of the comparative analysis so that we can know where we are coming from.

Claim 1- Nigeria's GDP growth rate is back up after the recession of 2016-17. It's important to note that it is yet to get back to about 3% growth we had just before hand over with lower oil prices then (than we do today). Fail. 2014 Growth rate. Source: CBN.
Claim 2 -The @MBuhari Administration’s priority Sectors of Agriculture and Solid Minerals maintained consistent growth throughout the recession.

FALSE. This is the chart for Agriculture GDP during the recession Source: NBS.

The Creators of the World’s Misfortunes

"One could not understand this #war if one did not always keep in mind the fact that International J//ewry stands behind all the unnatural forces that our united enemies use to attempt to deceive the world and keep humanity in the dark.

Procrastination is now the #quittlings secret weapon as they fail to deliver in any of their promises to their voters but instead deliver to their powerful elite interests.
So scared of honesty now they declare all experts as liars.
All debate treachery

So what can we do to hamper their tactics to avoid tax and enable a hedge fund inspired crash economy for them to profit.

2 keep pushing the debate back to facts on economy and nhs.
They have no viable evidence of any benefit.
But there is now evident harm and more being reported everyday.
So amplify the measured damage. Increase awareness and pressure on everyone to recognise damage now

The current dialogue about #DACA affects everyone in the US. How?

#Racism & #scapegoating & affect all minorities.

Deporting #DREAMers & undocumented #immigrants will have very negative impacts to the #economy. That affects everyone else. THREAD 1 #DreamActNow #immigration
The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from othersociologist.com/otherness-reso…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3

THE #BOND #BUBBLE THAT ALREADY BURST

1. Once and for all, dispense with the notion that rising #InterestRates are a result of a growing #economy. Housing & industrial production is rolling over & retail sales are declining.

Rates are rising bc of INSOLVENCY & #CREDIT RISK.
2. In 2007, prior to the crisis, the following was true:

🔷 the average yield was 4.6%
🔷 the #deficit was 1% of #GDP
🔷 publicly traded #debt was ~ 5 trillion #dollars

Due to #ZIRP, if the 10 year goes to a meager 4.4%, bond investors will lose OVER 25% of their investment
3. In 2018-19, prior to the coming crisis, the following is true:

🔶 publicly traded debt is ~ 15 trillion dollars
🔶 the deficit will be 8.5% of GDP
🔶 so interest rates are going to the 🌝 🌟 💫

Unless of course the #CentralBanks reverse and buy everything up...
