The end of #WW1 saw the beginning of proxy wars, occupation, millions of refugees, hundreds of thousands killed, revolts & the carving up of the Middle East (Sykes-Picot Agreement) by #Britain & #France that would plague, curse & bleed the region for a century (& continues today)
The destiny of millions of people, including my great-grandparents/grandparents/parents & myself included was shaped by a map printed by Colonel Sykes drawing a line from the ‘e’ in Acre to the last ‘k’ in Kirkuk, and thus dividing/re-defining the ‘Middle East’...
The French & the British sent in armies & agents into Syria, Lebanon, Iraq & Palestine to spike revolts, occupy, control & further the colonialist project over the region in the guise of a British/French ‘mandate’ backed by Arthur Balfour, Mark Sykes & Francois Georges-Picot...

1/ GRAVE problems at @generalelectric and @ClintonFdn are two sides of the same coin:ACCOUNTING FRAUD--GE's were tougher to spot and will be tougher to convict, but EPIC CLINTON (and OBAMA) charity frauds are WAY EASIER TO PROSECUTE @csthetruth
marketwatch.com/story/ges-stoc…
2/ According to IG Horowitz report, @FBI opened investigations into @ClintonFdn FRAUDS (and public corruption) in January 2016. IRS opened a companion inquiry in July 2016. Easy to understand why little progress happened through 20 January 2017. Under @realDonaldTrump what gives?
3/ Starting under Wendt, @generalelectric ballooned into finance taking scary risks and failing to explain true financial results transparently. Starting in 2001, @BillClinton did the same thing with @ClintonFdn . One common thread is HORRIFIC ACCOUNTING AND DIRECTOR OVERSIGHT

Right, so lots going on and I'm thinking of doing some stuff. But I need your advice and feedback! If you could answer the following polls (comments also welcome) that'd help loads!
I am thinking of writing an old skool email newsletter. Probably monthly. It'd be a mix of what is on here but possibly with a bit more #digital, a bit more #France and other things that are interesting. Would you subscribe? (I've not included 'maybe' - I need binary!)
I will be hosting a live podcast all about #Europe and #Brexit with a heavy #FBPE, #StopBrexit, #PeoplesVote slant. Would you be interested in...

Qu'est ce qu'un #procureur?
Son rôle en matière pénale.
Petit #thread dominical illustré
🔶️🔸️ grâce à la #BD
✔ Pour les plus jeunes...
D'âge ou d'esprit
➡️➡️➡️
En #France le #procureur défend la société ; c'est à dire l'intérêt général. Il veiile au respect des valeurs de la République pour que tous vivent en paix. Il agit avec la force de la loi. Parfois appelé avocat général sa mission est de représenter le ministère public.
Pour remplir sa mission, le #procureur dirige l'activité judiciaire de la @Gendarmerie et de la @PoliceNationale et fait procéder à des enquêtes afin d'arrêter les auteurs de faits punis par la loi. Il peut donner des instructions ou faire lui-même des investigations.

Sur @franceinter, le commissaire à l’économie Pierre #Moscovici a déclaré que l’Italie connait un "#déficit structurel beaucoup trop élevé".

➡️La Commission vient donc d’adresser un courrier à l'#Italie qui menace et évoque une "déviation sans précédent" des fin. pub.
Pourtant, l’Italie prévoit un déficit de 2,4% du PIB, inférieur à celui de la France pour la même année (2,8%).

"Il n’y aura pas de problème avec le déficit français", estime pourtant @pierremoscovici, car ce qui compte dans le déficit structurel c’est aussi la #croissance.
La croissance ? Mais en 2018 la #croissance italienne (1%) est supérieure à la croissance française (0,7%) !

Justement, répond Moscovici, augmenter les #dépenses publiques en #Italie ne peut créer de croissance car "nous sommes dans une période de surchauffe".

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

… the last time missing @INTERPOL Pres. #MengHongwei was in the news (aside from a September blip abt a spat b/t #Serbia/#Kosovo re: #INTERPOL membership) was in July. He met w/ #Russia'n Investigative Cmte Chairman #Bastrykin & was criticized by Prosecutor General #YuriChaika.
… another official who was detained by Communist #China recently is #NurBekri. He was head of the #PRC's National Energy Administration & was a #Uyghur. He went missing about a week after meeting w/ #Putin. Is it possible that #Beijing fears #Russia is recruiting its people?

How Europe Raped Africa

The Berlin conference of 1884 is where European colonising nations basically carved up Africa. Historians refer to it as “the scramble for Africa”.

#Africa #Europe #WhiteSupremacy
The countries represented at the time included Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Denmark, #France, #Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, #Russia, #Spain, Sweden-Norway (unified from 1814-1905), #Turkey, and the United States of #America.
The Conference of 1884–85, also known as the Congo Conference, regulated European colonization and trade in #Africa during the New Imperialism period and coincided with Germany's sudden emergence as an imperial power.

L'histoire de la #France version 2018:
-ceux venant de l'extérieur étaient toujours gentils et ont tout construit;
-les autochtones les accueillant,eux,étaient méchants et se laissaient vivre;
-d'ailleurs ces autochtones n'existent pas,sauf pour les dénigrer.
#HistoiresDuneNation
La Civilisation française, c'est un fin mélange entre une base gallo-romaine, la philosophie grecque, la spiritualité chrétienne, la royauté issue des Francs, la recherche du beau, la culture du débat et de la raison.
Pourquoi tourner le dos à tout cela ?
#HistoiresDuneNation
Quant à tous ceux qui ironisent sur #Zemmour, qu'ils soient réalistes: tout d'abord, le peuple français a été très stable jusqu'au début du 20e siècle. Ensuite,toutes les vagues d'immigration successives (dont Zemmour) se sont justement assimilées totalement.

My goodness: here's a prime example of policy advocacy on #Syria based either on ignorance, or [hopefully not] malign intent.

This is *riddled* with inaccuracy & misinformation.

@steelejourno says the West should force an opposition surrender in #Syria:

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
@steelejourno #pt: @steelejourno says the US, UK & #France are “less honorable” in seeking to delay #Syria & #Russia’s “success” in regaining territory.

- They seek to enable a meaningful political process, in which there’s an opposition entity to sit at the table. I’d say that is honorable.
@steelejourno #pt: Here, @steelejourno says UK, US, France & "Gulf Arab monarchies” want ceasefires to protect rebels, not civilians.

In #Idlib, nothing could be further from the truth. None of those countries have *any* ties to rebel groups in #Idlib, who only equal ~0.5% of the population.

Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.

1/ #NATO has strongly opposed the #Idlib campaign from #Syria & #Russia, warning a response to a chemical attack and then – to secure an escalation – on any attack. maps.southfront.org/now-u-s-threat…
2/ One #NATO member also strongly opposed to the #Idlib campaign, but for all different reasons: #Turkey reinforced its backed rebels in Idlib with support (after striking out the #HTS on its books) and weapons.

BREAKING - Likely #Israel airstrikes just hit a scientific research center - reportedly linked to the SSRC - in #Latakia.

#Assad regime air defenses were allegedly activated in multiple provinces: #Latakia, #Tartus, #Homs & #Hama.
Mabrouk #Assad - your invincible air defenses shot down an aircraft!

... a #Russia IL-20 reconnaissance plane was shot down over #Syria tonight - amid #Israel airstrikes in #Latakia.

#OwnGoal

Tonight’s developments vis-a-vis #Israel & Russia are a pretty big deal.

It would seem #Israel may have acted without giving #Moscow prior warning = big challenge to their prior arrangement.

Or, #Russia did know, but got attacked by their errant ally in #Damascus = humiliating.

Who is this fascist and white supremacist and what has he accomplished over the past year other than go on a tour of Europe where he told fellow fascists not to be ashamed of being called “racist”? This normalizing of fascism and white supremacy is a disgrace.
And this is the same magazine that ran this headline. A gathering of war criminals was “the biggest resistance meeting yet.”
Steve Bannon speaking to #France's far-right National Front party: "Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes... wear it as a badge of honor." He is a fascist & white supremacist: anyone sharing a stage with him is an enabler. And remember all the oxygen he gets e.g.

Here, a @UKLabour MP praises a notorious conspiracist who says meeting Bashar al-#Assad was her "proudest" moment.

She's justified incendiary weapons & barrel bombs on civilian targets; suggested 9/11 was a false flag; Zionists rule #France & the #CharlieHebdo attack was fake.
@UKLabour Extraordinary.

@UU_University invited notorious conspiracist Vanessa Beeley to lecture on “War Reporting.”

Her claims were so outlandish, the students walked out & boycotted the course, calling it “a propaganda camp.”

news.postimees.ee/4511277/top-un…

(PS - Look at the pictured slide)
@UKLabour @UU_University #pt: Among Beeley’s claims at @UU_University:

- @hrw is run by a secret “Jewish organization called the #Washington elite.”

- #Russia only promotes international peace

- #Syria’s opposition "tear pregnant women in half, betw'n cats”

- All media (e.g. @guardian) are govt tools
