A Thread on Income Tax and Middle Class

1. #UnionBudget2022 placed. Apart from several excellent proposals and measures suggested in order to achieve sustainable growth of National economy, government suggested no change in the existing income tax rates and exemptions. This is
2. exactly where d typical middle class, generally unaware of the intricate details of economics, remain interested. This is exactly the issue which concerns them the most and this is what they treat as yardstick to measure the extent of concern the government shows towards them.
3. Not unlike with any other previous governments of independent India,this time too they feel deprived. To understand the matter a little more precisely and to judge the extent of justification behind this feeling of the middle class, let us penetrate a little further.

Ebube Agụ, like Amotekun, won't fix the broken security architecture in Alaigbo.

For the umpteenth time, I advise Governors under the aegis of @NGFSecretariat to sue for the urgent Decentralisation of @PoliceNG into 37 Independent State Police & 774 Local Police Departments.
2/ Similarly, militia groups such as the Eastern Security Network (ESN) formed by @MaziNnamdiKanu can't fix the broken security architecture in Alaigbo. Such window gives rise to the formations of more militia groups by politicians & non-State actors.

Alaigbo will surely boil.
3/ Pending Decentralisation of @PoliceNG, Ag. @PoliceNG IG, Alkali Baba Usman must rid all roadways in Alaigbo of Police Roadblocks/Checkpoints which block the free flow of human/vehicular traffic; promote corruption, extortion, arbitrary arrests & police brutalities.

🔥Impeachment Trial🔥

Bezos’ phone was hacked by MbS.

The Saudi gov’t has been intent on harming Bezos since its relentless coverage of Khashoggi’s murder.

Did AMI obtain Bezos’s private texts from MbS?

Trump sold nuclear tech to Saudis in secret after Khashoggi killing

Pence is involved in the scandal at the heart of the trial. Pence met with Zelenskiy in Trump’s place during the period the aid was being withheld,

Trump has pointed to Pence about his comms w/ Zelenski & several figures have accused Pence of knowing abt the scheme.

“It’s trickier for Pence to be in all-on defense mode when he’s been implicated in the underlying allegations,”

Senate blocks Democrats’ bid to subpoena documents

New evidence links Nunes aide Derek Harvey to Parnas. They were in frequent contact

In one exchange, Harvey passed along Nunes’ contact info two days before the HIC’s impeachment report indicated that a phone connex to Nunes made contact w/ a phone connex to Parnas.

The text messages, provided to investigators by Parnas, show Harvey in contact with Parnas throughout the spring of 2019 — the same time Parnas was working with Giuliani and other Trump allies to remove the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

Yovanovitch had been viewed as an obstacle to Giuliani’s effort to convince Ukraine to investigate Trump’s political rivals, including Joe Biden.

Previously released information suggested Harvey and Parnas began communicating at least as early as January 2019.

1. The elephant in the room: Is #Trump and agent of Russia? That's because you can't talk about #Ukraine without talking about #Russia and #Putin. Watch "Ukraine In A Minute" below to find out why. @NarativLive
2. The Dems want to focus narrowly on the recent events involving Ukraine but Trump has attempted to meddle in Ukraine since before taking office. Here's a look at the first #Ukrainegate

🔥@RudyGiuliani’s henchman Lev Parnas says *in May* he gave #Ukraine an ultimatum: publicly announce a probe of Biden, or else @VP Pence wouldn’t attend Zelensky’s swearing-in and aid would be frozen.

Rudy: “I never told him to say that.”🙄

🚨Lev Parnas’ #extortion meeting in #Ukraine in May occurred AFTER Rudy (with Parnas’s help) had planned a trip there to urge Zelensky to pursue investigations to help @realDonaldTrump.🤬

#RICO #corruption #TrumpBribed @HouseDemocrats @RepAdamSchiff…
After reports of Rudy’s #extortion trip to #Ukraine surfaced in May, Rudy suddenly cancelled his trip, claiming he was “set up” by Ukrainians, and blamed Democrats for trying to “spin” his trip.

“They say I was meddling in the election.”🙄

The hold on UKR funds provoked panic at the DOD & DOD because the law required them to spend the money by the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30 or it EXPIRES.

They had to get the aid moving by 9/15 -- b/c of a req’t for a 2-week notification to Congress.

Trump says he lifted his freeze on aid to UKR on Sept. 11, but the DOS had quietly authorized releasing $141M of the money several days earlier.

The DOS decision, was based on a legal finding made earlier in the year, & conveyed in a classified memo to Pompeo.

DOS lawyers found the WH OMB & thus the president, had no legal standing to block spending of the Ukraine aid.

The freeze on funds Ukraine sought for its continuing war against Russia-backed separatists was opposed by many in the administration.

🔥Colonel #Vindman testified he was convinced that a #QuidProQuo existed WEEKS BEFORE @realDonaldTrump’s #Ukrainegate call, and *Trump* was personally blocking $400 million in aid to #Ukraine to force them to publicly announce an probe into the Bidens.…
#Vindman believed the existence of a #QuidProQuo was clear during a July 10 meeting, when Gordon Sondland told Ukrainian government officials that they would need to deliver "specific investigations in order to secure the meeting" with Trump that they so desired.🤬

🔥WHOA. #Vindman said that in a separate meeting of US officials immediately afterward, "Sondland emphasized the importance that #Ukraine deliver the investigations into the 2016 election, the Bidens, and Burisma.”

Total #corruption.🤬

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.

💣 Naftogaz💣

Their aims were profit, not politics.

This circle of businessmen & GOP touted connex to Giuliani & Trump while trying to install new mgmt at the top of Naftogaz.

Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies.
💣 Naftogaz2💣

Favorov said Parnas told him Trump planned to remove U.S. Amb Marie Yovanovitch (three mos b/4) & replace her with someone more open to aiding their business interests.

“The ambassador to Ukraine was replaced,” Giuliani said. “I did play a role in that.”
💣 Naftogaz3💣

Perry made clear that the Trump administration wanted to see the entire Naftogaz supervisory board replaced.

Perry w/ Volker & Sondland in attendance in mtg w/ Zekensky, again referenced the list of advisers (Trump donor/allies) that he had given Zelenskiy.

‼️Meet Trump & Giulaini’s two RU mob operatives working in Ukraine to influence prosecutors in an effort to dig up (manufacture?) dirt on Biden & HRC:

Ukrainian-born Igor Fruman and Russian-born Lev Parnas (between Pence & Trump).
The two Soviet-born Florida (Sunny Isles) businessmen — one linked to a Ukrainian tycoon with reputed mafia ties — are key hidden actors behind a plan by U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney to investigate the president’s rivals…
Giuliani has publicly identified Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman as his clients and Trump has endorsed their efforts during a Fox News interview.…

As @RitaKonaev notes, "Mattis had no problem disagreeing w/Obama about transgender people in the military or women in combat but won’t criticize Trump for asking foreign powers for dirt about political opponents.

This isn’t about him being above politics. This is his politics."
Excellent point here, and makes you wonder why Mattis' deference to the commander-in-chief is selectively applied in this manner 🤔

Who woulda thunk that a dude who asked Russia to hack Hillary’s emails & the 2016 election and has obstructed justice to evade indictment/impeachment would turn around and try the exact same shit over again with Biden bc it worked the 1st time and he’s still scott free?
News at 11: sociopath gonna sociopath, traitor gonna treason.
Trump’s crime spree isn’t going to end until consequences are levied and he no longer has power that he can abuse at will. He’s emboldened by getting away with this fraud for as long as he has and his rap sheet will only grow if he’s given the time and leeway. #AmericanSociopath

Women make a difference, then and now.
“As it turns out, nearly two-thirds of all known rescuers have been found to be women.”

Make your plans about how you can save our families, our country.
I’ve been repeatedly warned that I’ll destroy my career if I dare speak out, so most of my political tweets and blogs are under a different name.
BUT when a govt starts harming children and their families, I realized that speaking out for them IS my career.
I need some help
I delayed my divorce until my kids were beyond custody battles, thinking I could obtain my share of our assets to move on.
I didn’t realize that divorce cts in the US (some worse than others) are set up 2 asset-strip and discard the more dependent spouse, like venture capitalists
