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.”

(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

J'ai lu "Essai sur la nature du commerce en général" de Cantillon (1755), voici un #thread sur des trucs que j'ai appris / que j'ai trouvés intéressants / des extraits choisis. 1/
2/ Bien qu'"Essai" ait été probablement rédigé vers 1730, il n'a été publié qu'en 1755 suite à une forte censure en #France, il a été diffusé sous la forme d'un manuscrit inédit entre son achèvement et sa publication. Il est considéré comme le 1er traité complet sur l'#économie
3/ Le type de monnaie utilisé n'est pas décrété mais provient de l'usage. L'or et l'argent sont de facto les meilleures solutions (en 1730. Et en 2018? quid des #cryptomonnaies ?)

New Foreign Secretary @Jeremy_Hunt is in Paris to discuss Brexit & bilateral relations. Can he expect any favours? (mini thread)
1. The good news: France values UK relationship – ally in Middle East, Africa, UN and NATO & partner on intelligence, counter-terrorism. Discussions take place at bilateral level, so largely unaffected by Brexit.
2. The flip-side: France clear that Brexit negotiations are led by the EU. Its position hasn’t changed: UK cannot expect same benefits or preferential treatment. UK-EU trade will inevitably be weaker.

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)

Let's discuss this topic for this week's #GEMChats on #entrepreneurs and #entrepreneurship.

This week's topic is #Venture #Capitals and what is funding like for #womenentrepreneurs!

Please follow us, RT, reply and Like our #thread to discuss this topic.
In June 2017, @HarvardBiz published an article questioning the discrepancy in VC funding for #entrepreneurs of different genders.

In the US, #female entrepreneurs own 38% of the businesses in the country yet receive only about 2% of all venture funding in the whole country!
Some of you answered the poll that the reason for this phenomenon is that there is a lack of female VCs.

The #data however speaks otherwise; the number of female VCs has increased to 7% from 3% in 2014 and yet the funding gap has only increased.

Why does this happen?

Tens of thousands have gathered in Paris and to demand #IranRegimeChange #FreeIran2018. Given the last 6 months of escalating protests in #Iran, the idea is gathering steam and could be past a point of no return.
Clearly the regime in #Tehran is nervous. They tried targeting this #FreeIran2018 gathering in #Paris but were foiled in Belgium. The tide of history is rising up to swallow the regime. theguardian.com/world/2018/jul…
Belgium prosecutor’s statement on the foiled terrorist attack planned for the #FreeIran2018 conference. Found with 500gm of TATP explosives. Their contact was an Iranian national working at the Austrian ministry in Vienna - where Prez Rouhani is scheduled to visit shortly. #Iran

1/ Think of the number of people who know details concerning as yet unprosecuted @ClintonFdn FRAUDS---how many of these have been cooperating with state, federal, foreign governments @csthetruth?
2/ Then think of the number of accounting firms and professional advisers (especially including law firms) that enabled or conspired to cover up the @ClintonFdn FRAUDS, "thinking" perhaps that @HillaryClinton would be a "bankable", malleable president
3/ Then consider how many governments, crooked donors, and hackers may have penetrated abysmal "control systems" at @ClintonFdn and affiliated "charities" to become aware of CROOKED, multiparty FRAUDS and CORRUPTION

The most inaccurate article on the Swahili I have ever read!! A thread soon following!!! On what #BeingSwahili means #IamSwahili
I promised a thread on this but since I submitted a letter to the editor to @nytimes, I couldn’t post it elsewhere till after the review period. Since they didn’t publish it, here it goes...”#SomeoneTellNYTimes Swahili people exist” #BeingSwahili nytimes.com/2018/06/14/art…
In his review, Holland Cotter rewrites Swahili history in a way that wipes out the history of over 5million people by claiming that the Swahili language “belongs to no particular ethnic group or place” yet #IamSwahili. #BeingSwahili @nytimes

Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report
wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic

The Case for a ‘Strategic Backstop' mechanism for Libya

#LibyaStrategicBackstop
#Libya needs a strategic relationship with one member of the #UNSC to act as an International ‘Backstop’.

The purpose of the Strategic Backstop mechanism is to ensure effective 'Triangulation' of the #Libyan transition and ‘stop’ #Libya from falling ‘back’ into conflict
Without a strategic backstop mechanism, the unity and stability of the #UN Security Council itself is at stake.

In this thread I will lay out what why both #Libya and the International Community, need this backstop, and how it could function.

#DW #TimSabastien:'The fact is there was no intensive fire by #Hamas gunmen was there? And we know that bc by the evening your Army spokesman #JonathanConricus said"our troops have not taken any sustained direct fire"
So why are u misrepresenting your situation?'#GazaMassacre🇵🇸
#DW #TimSebastien: "Isn't it strange that #Hamas who you said declared its intentions to break through the border to kill #Israel-is & to destroy your country, it offered no sustained direct fire to secure those aims?"
#MichaelOren:"And your point?"

1/ En bas des actes royaux, le roi de #France écrivait la formule : "Car tel est notre plaisir". Cette formulation fut ensuite copieusement instrumentalisée pour nous expliquer que le roi était un tyran qui n'agissait que selon des caprices et un pouvoir totalement personnel...
2/ Or c'est bien entendu totalement faux et encore une fois de la vulgaire propagande. Le mot "plaisir", qui vient du latin "placere", est ici justement utilisé pour expliquer que la décision est réfléchie et qu'elle se fait pour l'intérêt général, et après une délibération.
3/ En effet, le roi de France ne prend nullement ses décisions tout seul de manière arbitraire mais après avoir consulté ses conseils et ses ministres. Et tous les actes royaux doivent obligatoirement être enregistrés par le #Parlement de Paris et les autres parlements de France.

#Iran has obviously not fully considered #Russia. Russia does not want a war between #Israel and #Iran in #Syria. So the Russians are now trying to mediate between the two nations. Russia has too much at stake in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
#War between #Iran and #Syria would draw the #UnitedStatesOfAmerica into the fight and that would be a disaster for #Russia. Believe it or not, Russia does not want to tangle militarily with the US or Israel in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
Scenario 1:
#Iran will launch another strike but it may come from #Hezbollah in #Lebanon or #Hamas in #Gaza. Or it could be another attack from #Syria into #Israel. My guess is that it will be a #terrorattack. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot #airstrike
