#PROBLEM
Australia is being DELIBERATELY Decimated
by both Foreign & Domestic Entities
for the Benefit of the Few
at the Cost to the many
where YOUR Future is Determined
by someone else
b/c THEY say so

Here is the PROOF -;
#ISSUE
The Global Positioning is expanding

#QUESTION = Do You realize what is REALLY Going on
OR
Do you believe the Narrative that is couched in
"Feel Good" terms of Inclusion & Diversity ??

#QUESTION = Can You "SEE" the Direction
that is being Imposed ??
#DIRECTION

Natural Progression by Society is one thing
BUT
When that Direction is FORCED Upon You without any Public Discourse
The RESULT is #TYRANNY

#QUESTION = Do You think that is NOT Happening ??

The #deficit #myth #deficitmyth by @StephanieKelton #MMT modern monetary theory
Myth N. 1: The #state should budget like a #household
#RealityCheck : unlike a household, a #SovereignNation, which owns its national #centralbank, issues the #currency it spends
Myth N. 2: #deficit is evidence of #overspending
#RealityCheck: look to #inflation for evidence of over spending
The purpose of #taxes is not to pay for #government expenditures but to help rebalancing the #wealth distribution #MMT

2/ccp We have to make a distinction between DJT's approach to China policy(correct) and his approach to Rest of World(flawed). The core of the China policy is spot on & only needs to be adapted to the demands of diplomacy & 21st C narrative. https://t.co/YV9EY9AXLL

Words like, #containment & #constrainment, are useful for academic discussion, but don't constitute a #Strategy. Th objective of China strategy is, or must be, to Deter China's Imperialism on its land & sea borders. This doesn't exclude talking to it abt climate change or Covid19

"Sergei Mikhailov is accused of working with the CIA"

"Two sources indicated he was a mole inside the FSB"

"He passed info to U.S. agents that led to a USIC report alleging Russia hacked the DNC"

"He may have been selling info for at least seven years"

"In 2016, 'FSB agents' Mikhailov et al successfully used false intelligence to deceive Christopher Steele and others, who the DNC and Perkins Coie were bribing that year. An obstruction of justice jackpot!"

Polish Internal Security Agency #ABW have detained on May 7 four 4 #Tajiks on charges of attempting to recruit Muslim converts to carry out militant attacks. The suspects were inspired by the #IslamicState terrorist organization but are not members of the group.
This is another terrorist plot in Europe with citizens of Tajikistan in recent days. On April 15 German authorities detained 5 Tajiks suspected of forming an IS cell plotting attacks in #Germany.
Two individuals in this Tajik cell in Germany were alleged to have traveled to Albania with plans to carry out a contract killing. Around two weeks later, authorities in Albania said they arrested a Tajik citizen sought by Germany for suspected membership in an IS cell.

Fascinating argument about "where" a #bitcoin transaction occurs in briefing on appeal of conviction for wire fraud (18 U.S.C. § 1956(c)(4)), in US v. Costanzo; Defendant argues in person cash for bitcoin trades do not implicate interstate commerce. Let's dive in on this one:
transasctions at issue were IRL cash for #crypto. USGovt argues interstate nexus b/c the website localbitcoins.com is “based” outside the US, and that a #bitcoin node alleged to be in Germany was involved in this transasction. LOL. Defense here argues that /2
localbitcoins.com is “based” outside the United States is irrelevant b/c localbitcoins.com was not used for any of the charged transactions; used Mycelium, Breadwallet, and other wallets. Defense argues no evidence that #Bitcoin "travels through" /3

Let us briefly #Reflect on the #SARB's first #MPC #Meeting of 2020 and their #MonetaryPolicy decision to cut rates by 25bps from 6.5% to 6.25%...
Everyone with some interest in such matters is without a doubt already aware that the #SouthAfricanReserveBank's #MonetaryPolicyCommittee cut its key #PolicyRate, the #Repo by 25 basis points from 6.5% to 6.25%. The move can perhaps best be summarised by the following statement:
It is clear from the statement above that the SARB moved on the back of a growth story. They would want to see the level of #inflation creep closer to 4.5% but they didnt tighten to achieve this end. Rather, they provided more accommodation for growth & inflation might pick up...

So it started with this comment to a post on the #righttokeepandbeararms:

"People, our rights were given us by the #Constitution. Those rights you are talking about were NOT given by #God!"
There are folks who believe this claim to be true. For example, @ChrisCuomo, who famously declared on his news program, "our rights do not come from God." (He offered no explanation of why #ThomasJefferson was wrong to claim that they do, in the #DeclarationofIndependence.)
But the assertion that our rights come from the Constitution would be #foreign to those that drafted, debated, and ratified the #BillofRights:
