"🔥Christine Deviers-Joncour "🗣 Poutine a pris la parole lors du défilé de la victoire :

— La Russie a exhorté l'Occident au dialogue. En vain, les pays de l'OTAN n'ont pas voulu nous entendre.

- La Russie a repoussé préventivement l'agression, c'était une décision forcée,
, opportune et seulement correcte.

- Les vétérans américains qui voulaient venir au défilé de la Victoire à Moscou se sont en fait vus interdire par les États-Unis de le faire.

« Nous honorons tous les soldats des armées alliées : les Américains, les Britanniques, les Français,
les résistants, les braves soldats et partisans de la Chine, tous ceux qui ont vaincu le nazisme et le militarisme.

- Les militaires russes, au cours d'une opération militaire spéciale, se battent pour les habitants du Donbass, pour la sécurité de leur patrie.

¿Sabías que #Taldiacomohoy de 1979 #ETA asesinó en #Oñate al TEDAX de la
@guardiacivil Juan Antonio Díaz Román? La bomba que trataba de desactivar explotó alcanzándole de lleno.

Otra historia más de #héroes, de #impunidad y de #injusticia

HILO ⤵️ ImageImage
1. Juan Antonio viendo que no se podía desactivar la bomba a distancia intentó neutralizarla manualmente. En el momento en que lo hacía la bomba explotó.

¡Cuántas vidas de artificieros se ha llevado por delante ETA y qué poco hablamos de ellos!.

Profesión de #héroes. ImageImage
2. A los diez años se juzgó a sus asesinos: Rafael Etxabe Urteaga, José María Lete Unzueta y Miguel Osa Aldecoa. Sólo se condenó y a 12 años a éste último. Pero luego lo contabilizan como asesinato resuelto, porque ha habido una sentencia.

¿Creéis que lo está?

¡NO ES JUSTICIA! ImageImageImage

#FFS @ThatAlexWoman

Is there a #DNotice on #Russian side of #Ukraine debate

Or have government threatened to ban @GBNEWS like #RTNews if you don't push #NATOPropaganda

PS Presenting your pro "#Nationalist" PoV & inviting a "guest" to agree with it isn't "interviewing" them!🤦‍♂️ ImageImageImageImage
@ThatAlexWoman

I can't say @GBNEWS less balanced than #RTNews

As can no longer see #RT News

Just your pro-#Ukraine #Propaganda

"Reporting" with an anti-#Russian rant

And ending with well (of course) the #Russians denied it

Isn't "balanced" reporting!

@ThatAlexWoman @GBNEWS

Such a disappointment

Same old same old as can get on sly #SlieNews @sky #Channel4akeNews @Channel4News & @BBCNews

Should rename yourselves #UkraineNews or @xisSally @RadioHawHaw!🤦‍♂️

1/🧵 Covid-19 #vaccination in American Indian & Alaska Native (AI/AN): @NEJM

The AI/AN population has the highest 1st dose & full #vaxx rates of any US racial or ethnic group.

This photo of Black Elk should remind us of true #HEROES

link: bit.ly/3KY77og Image
2/ This successful trend is especially important given AI/AN communities have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 and by ongoing discrimination throughout the health care system.

AI/AN communities have worked to protect the health and well-being of their members by… Image
3/ …adapting community mitigation & vaccination strategies to their diverse cultures.

There are 574 federally recognized tribes located in 35 states. AI/AN lands, which are sovereign territories, extend over 100 million acres, including 44 million acres in Alaska.

4 semanas, 5 meses, ¿qué más da?

8 que 80

Esa es la Zienzia Covín:
Lo que sea, lo que necesite el momento político, lo que mejor sirva al Relato del Miedo

Total, el Covidiano ya ha demostrado que traga con CUALQUIER rueda de molino, con cualquier incoherencia o contradicción
Ni siquiera es necesario esperar un mínimo para cambiar las normas 180º, con la magia de la Zienzia Covín cosas OPUESTAS pueden ser Doblepensadas por el covidiano como simultáneamente ciertas

La 3ª dosis evita el contagio Ómicron, pero en Israel no vale la 4ª

Dice un Estudio
Y así, 2 años de nuestra vida tirados a la basura

Las fantasías y las Våriantes son cada vez más increíbles y de mejor duración, a nadie le importa ya una incidencia de 3000 ni los cientos de muertos que intentan colar; básicamente porque ya nadie se cree ni una sola cifra

We have updated self-isolation guidance. From today, if you have COVID, it is possible to end SI after 7 days rather than 10, as long as you have two negative LFD tests *taken 24 hours apart*. gov.uk/government/pub…
🧵1/13
You can now take an LFD test from the 6th day of SI, and another 24 hrs later. If both are negative, *and you do not have a high temperature*, you can end SI *after the 2nd -ve test result*. Many COVID symptoms can last a long time but this does not = still infectious 2/13
Count your isolation period from the day your symptoms started. If you didn’t have any symptoms but you have a positive test (LFD or PCR), count from the day of the first positive test. This is effectively “day zero” 3/13

#TalDiaComoHoy del #2000 #ETA asesinó en #Tarrassa también con bomba lapa a Fco. Cano concejal del @populares y fontanero de profesión. Murió abrasado. "Vi como levantaba el brazo y pedía ayuda". El policía que lo atendió: "No hacía otra cosa que quejarse del dolor"

Hilo ⤵️
1. Estuvo conduciendo su furgoneta desde las 7,45h hasta las 10,50h que la bomba estalló. Llevó a varios operarios, la suerte hizo que no estallara cuando iban todos. Salvaron la vida de milagro.

Sus asesinos: Fernando García Jodrá, Lierni Armendaritz y González de Langarika.
2. Francisco Cano no contaba con protección policial y no vivía obsesionado por su seguridad, aunque era consciente de que existía un riesgo. La intranquilidad de la familia se acentuó después del asesinato de su compañero en San Adrián del Besós, José Luis Ruiz Casado.

#TalDiaComoHoy de 1978 #ETA asesinó en #Vitoria a SATURNINO SOTA, panadero.

Culpable: No secundó una huelga de la izquierda abertzale y tener amigos @policia con los que se le veía chiquitear, lo que le valió amenazas, cócteles molotov y su posterior asesinato.

#Héroe

Hilo ⤵️ ImageImageImage
1. Sobre las 19:30 horas tres etarras con capuchas entraron a su panadería, Saturnino se encontraba con una empleada, a la que intimidaron para que se apartase. A continuación, empujaron a Saturnino contra la pared y le dispararon cuatro veces, en la cabeza, el pecho y el cuello. ImageImageImage
2. Se sabe quiénes fueron sus asesinos pero nunca fueron juzgados. El chivato fue José Luis Gómez San Pedro, el autor material Félix Alberto López de Lacalle, alias Mobutu.

#Thread #LachitDiwas
The Mughals could never spread their empire in North East India. And one man who instrumental in ensuring this was Lachit Borphukan. He was a Commander in the Ahom Kingdom (present day Assam), who thwarted the Mughal attack in the Battle of Saraighat 1/n
Although weaker, the Ahom Army defeated the Mughal Army by brilliant uses of the terrain, clever diplomatic negotiations to buy time, guerrilla tactics, psychological warfare, military intelligence and by exploiting the sole weakness of the Mughal forces—its navy. 2/n
There is an anecdote from this Battle that every child in Assam has read or heard. Before the night of the Battle, Lachit Borphukan had instructed that an earthen fortification was to be built for defense. The responsibility had been given to his Mama. 3/n

Let's try imagining 1996:

AIDS is killing more than 1 million people/year, from all countries and ages
No vaccine or treatment at sight

Society believes, without any science but a bunch of prejudices, gays and drug addicts are the only vectors for the new desease Image
Cases and deaths look terrifying, with a scary unstoppable steep increase

Many famous death has rose awareness, going siguen with concern for desease and fear and untrust for the scapegoats

Something must be done!
Take action
Impose restrictions ImageImageImage
Imagine a wicked wild campaign against them, promoting the idea that AIDS infected & drug users, just because they could have higher infection chances, therefore rising risk of them infecting others, must be isolated from society

That they're dangerous in bars, museums, at work Image

Imaginemos, 1996

El SIDA, sin vacuna ni tratamiento, mata más de un millón de personas al año, de todos los países y edades

La sociedad asume, sin ciencia que lo sustente pero toneladas de prejuicio, que homosexuales y los toxicómanos son los únicos vectores de transmisión Image
El número de casos y fallecidos presenta una tendencia creciente temible

La muerte de muchos famosos ha convertido el problema en notorio, generando preocupación ante la enfermedad y miedo ante los culpabilizados

Habría que 'hacer algo', no?
Tomar medidas
Imponer restricciones
Imaginad que, con una campaña salvaje contra ellos, se hubiera intentado promover la idea de que sidosos y yonkis, por tener más posibilidades de transmitir la mortal enfermedad, deben ser aislados de la vida social

Que son UN PELIGRO en bares, en museos, en el trabajo

Are you using the terms #MSM #media #news and #press incorrectly? If so you are hurting #journalism.

And America won’t survive without journalism. 📰 🗞

Thread 🧵:
-what is media? It’s really anything out there: TV, papers, mags, internet. This is an extremely general term. Do not use it, unless you specify which medium. Particularly if you are unhappy with this medium. When you use media in a derogatory manner, you hurt *all* media.
-what is MSM? Who the hell knows. Especially in today’s digital age. Propagandists love using and abusing this term. Be wary of it. See above. Skip usage.

*PUT YOUR PAWS IN THE AIR FOR THIS REAL LIFE HERO!!!*
Last week my friend’s @RamboTeaches brother was in a terrible crash in his semi. When the ambulance came to get him they found his puppy and travel companion, Bruno. (1/5) Image
Bruno rode in the ambulance - his dad went into surgery then Bruno had to go to a shelter. He was scared and far from home! 🥺 Luckily, a hero came forward. Nurse Janis Koren graciously offered to take Bruno until things could get sorted out. (2/5) Image
She opened her heart and her home to help a stranger. She took Bruno knowing he isn’t even fully potty trained! 💦 She thoughtfully sent pictures and updates to worried friends back home. (3/5)

I thought we have agreed walls were wrong

I thought we all believed splitting families was wrong

I thought we've learned some lessons from History

In the pictures, Berlin wall and Australia Covid wall

Do you really, really, really think everything we're doing makes sense? ImageImage
It never begins with the whole thing.
First, it is 1 meter high barrier, a light fence

Then you climb the stairs of segregación and control, and each step seem the normal height:
Would ANYONE in Western societies find any normal A WALL in the middle of Australia 2 years ago? ImageImage
Now, it's happening, but hey, it's normal, is NewNormal, we're in the middle of a Pandemic, man.

Societies need to stand out of the dream: there's no such thing as a Pandemic logic.
There's only logic.

If it was monstrous in 2019, it STILL monstrous.

Break the spell. ImageImage

Cuantos nos hemos sentido alguna vez como David Garrik el actor más famoso de Inglaterra en el siglo XVIII?🤔. La soledad en los minutos previos a un acto suicida debe ser de las más profundas que pueda vivir un ser humano.
Quiero recordar a Robin Williams q.e.p.d con este poema: Reír llorando.

Aug 2021: The #pandemic response as contemporary #imperialism

"Progressives often engage in leftist rhetoric, but their proposals always result in strengthening & expanding the existing, inequitable system & further entrenching the current, elite class."

leftlockdownsceptics.com/2021/08/the-pa…
"The assumption of infallibility & the feeling of entitlement to play God w/ someone else’s health is pure #colonization of other human beings... that someone else’s personal choices about his/her own life should be subordinate to your beliefs is the essence of #imperialism."
"It is an expectation that one can & should dominate others. Such a person is carrying on the storied legacy of the numerous imperialists before them... these people are this era’s imperialist #oppressors, though of course, like all imperialists, they see themselves as #heroes."

Don’t forget to tune into #subnormal tonight on BBC1 at 9pm. It’s an absolute scandal that so many Black British children were labelled as ‘educationally subnormal’ and farmed out to special schools. It affected them for life. It’s exec produced by Steve Mc Queen.
For the first time some people are speaking to #RoganProductions about what they lived through. They still carry feelings of shame. It was down to Black parents to have to fight against this and ask why their kids were being treated like this #subnormal
Noel Gordon whose parents came from Jamaica speaks for the first time on camera and is entirely self taught. He even has a post graduate degree from Brunel and has self published children’s book. These days he runs workshops for kids #subnormal

**EL INTRIGANTE ORÍGEN JUDÍO DE BATMAN**
Es uno de los superhéroes más populares y queridos. ¿Puede ser que esté íntimamente relacionado con el judaísmo? ¿Y si está asociado a un pasaje extremadamente curioso y poco conocido de la Torá? Conozcamos esta historia. Sale #hilo.
El enmascarado vió la luz el 30 de marzo de 1939 y, como la gran mayoría de los héroes de ficción, surgió de la creatividad de artistas judíos. Para el caso se trató de Bob Kane (originalmente Robert Kahn) y Milton "Bill" Finger.
A diferencia de #Superman que es es un ser supernatural con superpoderes (como la gran mayoría de superhéroes), #Batman es un ser humano sin ningun poder especial. Un hombre de carne y hueso que utiliza su fuerza e inteligencia para defender a los inocentes.

So more Mars reminiscences @search_mars @howellspace @Thievesbook

Everybody has a favourite space mission, and mine was Viking in the seventies. I was twelve when the pair landed which is about the right age to think about important questions of cosmic import

#countdowntoMars ImageImageImageImage
Viking was a long, complicated mission. The reason it worked was because of Jim Martin, the project manager. He was called “The Prussian General” by many as he wouldn’t put up with any crap from anyone, not least mission scientists ImageImageImage
There is always tension on missions between the engineers and the scientists. As one engineering manager once told me, better is the enemy of good. Jim Martin was one of the best. nasa.gov/langley/hall-o…
