The Astor Bloodline Part2

Strange how the elite likes to promote conservation among us ‘cattle.’ In the late 1800’s, the Illuminati began to reconfigure its outward face. The higher levels started creating innocent sounding cover organizations to hide their meetings 1/38
behind. In 1901, the Astors contributed toward the creation of the Pilgrim Society, which was the cover organization for Amer. & Brit. 6° Princes of the Illuminati. I believe at least five Astors are now members of the Pilgrim Society. The Pilgrims had recently included 2/38
David Astor, John Jacob Astor 8th, and William Waldorf Astor 3rd. And during the 1970s, Baron Astor of Hever was the President of the #London branch of the #Pilgrims. This implies that Astor of Hever was at least the next level up in the chain of command.

The Astors also 3/38

2. "Generosity is a virtue, but unlimited generosity is a fast route to bankruptcy.

Humanitarianism is commendable, but not when you’re demanding that others share the burdens and expense.

A very liberal immigration policy is wise, but helter-skelter migration isn’t."
#Merkel
3. "Knowing how to set broad but clear limits is one of the essentials of conservative governance. Merkel’s failure is that she ceased to be conservative."

#Syria/n hero swimmer Sara Mardini who with her sister helped save 18 fellow refugees in 2015, has been charged with "people smuggling" for helping save refugees by Greek authorities, and placed in a maximum security prison. theguardian.com/world/2018/sep…
“The accusations are more about criminalising humanitarian action. Sara wasn’t even here when these alleged crimes took place but as charges they are serious, perhaps the most serious any aid worker has ever faced.”
From #Russia to #Spain, European human rights workers have been targeted by various fascist led States in what campaigners call an increasingly sinister attempt to silence civil society in the name of "security" but really to appease xenophobia, racism, and sadism.

Raconte! Je vais essayer de raconter ce que je vis ici en @Grèce, ce que je sens, ce que je pense, en ce jour de "clean exit" (pas si clean que ça) du "bailout" qui nous a accompagnés et et formatés depuis 8 ans.
1. La #Grèce regagne aujourd'hui son indépendance financière. C'est important pour l'Etat grec, c'est important pour l'Union européenne. Pour le citoyen grec, dans sa vie quotidienne, cela ne change rien.
2. La reprise économique est ténue, se fait surtout sentir dans le secteur du tourisme. Les Grecs continuent à vivre en suspens, en attente de la fin de la crise. Or la crise, celle de la #Grèce dans l'€, est finie depuis le 13 juillet 2015.

The Money is BIG @bonifacemwangi BIG. Land issues of #Samburu #Maa, #Rendille #Pokot is Politicians + #NIRT with #GoK behind them - and behind the land sales - they also use @NPSOfficial_KE, @AP's to evict pastoralists.
@ckfoot @gathara @alaminkimathi
Because it seems that this line of #CONservation has gotten international attention and more people are decrying the evictions of land from the indigenous community - the conservationists have taken an ugly turn - Sell wildlife....
#CONservation
#TheBigWhiteLie
@NationBreaking
Yet this is just as disastrous as evicting indigenous pastoralists.
• WILD LIFE belongs to #KENYANS as a whole, it cannot belong to eg, #NRT because it happens to be within those fences - fences which we agree, were put up illegally.

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖

Don't give up your freedom of speech. The Media has. They want to herd you like sheep. They are the true Enemy of the people. #Trump is just the vehicle of their control. #FakeNews #FreeThought Be a Leader of your own mind, not a follower of theirs.
They are trying to destroy our #Republic. They want to control you and chances are they already do. Remember how things used to be, before they injected the hate into our #society. "They" profit on #war, your #debt, and #disease.
They have put #US in debt to the tune of 20 trillion+ #China is in debt, #Russia is in debt, #Europe is in Debt, etc. They manipulate countries into #war and then lend them money to fight. (both sides).

1/5 Brexit Britain is in as ugly, bitter & dangerous state as I can ever recall. Political parties, the press, communities & families are hopelessly split &, as this epic summer blazes on, the two sides slump exhausted, like medieval armies plotting the final & decisive battle.
2/5 Someone, perhaps one or all of these politicians or an outsider like Gina Miller or Sadiq Khan, simply HAS to rise up, statesman-like, & make real the #PeoplesVote that is surely our last chance of delivering this country from the fast approaching #Brexit catastrophe.
3/5 They’ll need a persuasive & emotionally engaging vision on why #Europe is a great & civilising influence in our national life & how we can ALL make things better for the millions who felt so alienated by it that they were easy meat for the #Leave sharks in the first place.

753 BCE: A little town called #ROME is founded on the banks of the Tiber in #Italy. It will invent the word Emperor & become the standard for all future western empires. Its language is still used on the seal of the American President, along w/ its symbol of the Eagle. (2/21)
387 BCE: Plato founds his Academy for philosophy in #Athens. In between bouts of mansplaining & homoeroticism they trailblaze the concept of using logic & reason to make sense of the world & develop tools for doing so we still use today. (3/21)

President Obasanjo once called maintaining Nigeria Airways (NAL) irresponsible. Six years later, one of his successors, despite a petition from former NAL employees appealing for ₦45 billion in severance pay, is shopping the world for an investor for a proposed national carrier.
Between a ferocious fight over revenue sharing, and ignoring the obvious on Boko Haram, bad ideas seem to die slowly, such that it has almost obscured the recognition Nigeria’s music industry got from the world’s largest music label.
The latest #BokoHaram attacks don't suggest a resurgence of the group so much as they demonstrate its resilience, capacity for strategic hibernation and stealth.

They also indicate that the financing with which it procures weapons and its recruitment remain largely uninhibited.

1. So here is something most reports on the Friday July 6 #JCPOA Joint Commission meeting missed. #Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif made an unplanned trip back to Tehran the night before the foreign ministers' meeting on the nuclear deal.
2. Zarif was already in Vienna in the days leading up to the #JCPOA meeting as part of President Rouhani's official visit to Austria. Rouhani returned to Tehran on July 4 and the idea was that Zarif would stay on until Friday.
3. But just a few hours after Rouhani's departure, Zarif also rushed back to Tehran. This is easy to confirm if you check the flight history:
◢ Rouhani (EP-IGA)- 4 July, Dep 11:05 PM, Arr 5:17 AM
◢ Zarif (EP-IGD)- 5 July, Dep 2:28 AM, Arr 8:44 AM

"The president was saying no to answering questions," says @PressSec, clarifying earlier response from @POTUS when he was asked about whether #Russia is still a threat. "He does believe they would certainly target U.S. elections again."
"We're looking at it," responds @PressSec to latest indictment of Russian in US.

US could do a separate trade deal with #Mexico and a subsequent agreement with #Canada later, @POTUS says during Cabinet meeting. #NAFTA
Asked if #Russia is still targeting the US, @POTUS shakes his head and says "no."
Nobody has been as tough on #Russia as he has, says @POTUS. "I think President Putin knows that better than anybody," including the media, and Putin "is not happy about it."
