three major developments over the past day demonstrate how #Europe seeks to shape the global #Internet. if you only focus on US reg, dominated by politics & not law, you’re missing a major part of the action.
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.
#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.
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. #thebigwhitelie #thebigconservationlie
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 📖
#Burkas are like wearing a crusifix&should b defended,said Scots leader liberal+lesbian,irresponsibly ignoring that a crusifix is a symbol of #Christianity,which holds t western civilisation,while #nijab is a symbol of oppression enforced recently in #Islam by the #Saudi#Wahhabi
#Liberals accusing #Iranian govt of"oppressing women" who must wear a lose scarf,but do not protest against the #Saudi#Wahhabi reactionary dogma,while it's creeping as political #Islam to combat western #civilisation at the end.If it's sounds like fiction,think Saudi investments
Serious problem wth "western civilisation"mental health.Giving up easily to full veil wearing wthout asking what the cover symbolises,wthout questioning why it came from archaic #Saudi#Wahhabi#Sharia#Regime by force,is👉rejection of progressive western values.Period
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.
From #Pericles to #Trump: A brief history of the West in 21 tweets (including this tweet). Purpose is to show how through the muddled history there is a direct ideological train connecting Western Civ that is meaningful to talk abt. Obvs lots is missing. it's a tweetstorm. (1/21)
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)
The Siege of Gvozdansko (Croatian: Opsada Gvozdanskog) was a siege of Gvozdansko Castle in the Kingdom of Croatia within Habsburg Monarchy. The battle around Gvozdansko and the siege of the castle lasted from 3 October 1577 to 13 January 1578, #Croatia#Hrvatska#Europe #
between the defending Croatian forces and the invading Ottoman army under the command of Ferhat-paša Sokolović. The battle resulted in an Ottoman victory with heavy losses on the Ottoman side, while all defenders died during the siege.
After the fall of Bulgaria, Serbia and Bosnia, the Ottoman Empire directed its forces towards Hungary and Croatia.
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.
