#India #KakoriTrainRobbery #History has it that A staunch Sanatani Arya Samaji, Cow protector, young poet and writer who rose from extreme poverty, and was involved in Shuddhukaran or reconversion of People to #Hinduism, met a nationalist, progressive #Muslim (yes, they exist).
#History has it that they became friends who couldn’t live without one another. A day when the #Muslim friend suffered a fit, he went down crying “Ram, Ram” which shocked his family. Later they realised he was chanting his friend’s name. #India
The two friends were great sons of #India Ram Prasad #Bismil and #Ashfaqullah Khan Warsi. They become friends, they lived and died together. #History has it that in his short life where he faced huge treacheries , #Ashfaq was the one who #Bismil trusted as soul brother.

Learn something today about your government!

Article explains the difference of Democracy v. Republic but the picture is more succinct.

madisonproject.com/2013/09/we-the…

Hint: We are a Constitutional Republic much to the Democrats’ chagrin. #History #America #USA
Often Democrats mislabel our governance and that’s not by accident. As you can see, Democracy in its purest form is not what most would want. Our constructional republic is a much better way to govern bc ppl have the power not government. The inalienable rights are irrevocable!
With all this talk these days about the First & Second Amendment, Democrats want you to forget those inalienable rights are irrevocable so they can impose requirements making it impossible to enjoy . This is a detriment to society. Ex. Chicago 2A & Social Media censorship 1A!

At the outskirts of Jericho stands Khirbat al-Mafjar or the Hisham's Palace, one of the most remarkable structures of Late Antiquity, dating from the Umayyad dynasty period (probably the first half of the 8th C). It tells so many stories! /1 #lateantique #history
It was discovered at the end of the 19th century but the main excavations were carried out by Dimitri Baramki between 1934 and 1948 (later joined by Robert Hamilton). You can read more about Baramki here: palestine-studies.org/sites/default/… /2
The palace was a lavish retreat connected with an agricultural complex with gardens, a mosque and a bath. It belongs to the group of "desert castles" that in their plan might be a creative development of a Roman fort or estate. /3

REAL ANON'S are here as we follow the EVIDENCE (documented verifiable evidence) we are building the #TRUTH of our #HISTORY so we can expose & dismantle corruption that has #PLAGUED our world for millennia

I invite any publication to print this as a statement of fact from an ACTUAL ANON. 

WE do not tell YOU what to think or how to FEEL about a topic. WE simply dig for TRUTH & then PRESENT what we find so it can be scrutinized by our PEERS & further corroborated.

The CHOICE to KNOW what we have found, verified and presented is entirely up to YOU. 

Presenting OUR work in a way to imply WE are some sort of cult, shows the WORLD how corrupt the MAINSTREAM MEDIA has become.

Aiko Herzig-Yoshinaga (1925-2018) discovered a copy of "Final Report" produced by the Civil Affairs Division of the Western Defense Command in April 1943. Every copy of the report, drafts and notes, was directed to be destroyed.

#JapaneseAmerican #AAPI #history #twitterstorians
The Final Report stated it was "impossible to establish the identity of the loyal and the disloyal with any degree of safety." Meaning all Japanese Americans, the majority of whom were US citizens, were to be judged solely on their ethnicity/ancestry.

#history #twitterstorians
Final Report stated: It wasnt' that there was insufficient time in which to make such a determination; it was simply a matter of facing the realities that a positive determination could not be made, that an exact separation of the 'sheep from the goats' was unfeasible. #history

"...Russian scornfully regards the United States and Great Britain..."
Why would there not be a long game if the end game is the world.

Yesterday I spoke with Lorna Cockayne, one of the last surviving people who ran the first computers in the world--the Colossus computers at Bletchley Park.
Lorna is in her 90s but still vividly recalls the (often tedious) work. Her job as a Colossus operator was to crack the encryption, which changed every day, for Lorenz--the code used for German high command to receive their marching orders. It was far harder to crack than Enigma.
Lorna's machine was Colossus II, which was brought into operation just before D-Day. The information unlocked by Lorna & the other women working in round-the-clock shifts on this machine was make-or-break for the success of the D-Day landings (as I talk about in @proginequality)

Let's talk a little about #history, #language, and #languagechange. Many of the world's languages evolved from historical #protolanguages and have sister and cousin languages in their family, similar to how animals are classified.
For example, #English is a #WestGermanic language within the #IndoEuropean family.

Meanwhile, languages like #Basque are #isolates, meaning they have no known language relatives. There are some fringe theories about Basque, but none that are widely-accepted.
Take a look at your #language or languages you like on ethnologue.com. Comment below on any surprising facts you find or any questions that come up!

"Based on the agenda of the City of Vancouver’s Urban Design Panel on Wednesday (June 27), the development will have 38 housing units as well as 12 micro dwelling units above commercial spaces on ground level." Those are the only details about the 'development'. #dtes #vanpoli
cw: the thread that will undoubtedly ensue may contain various not-exactly-on-topic freak-outs, references to harsh things, bitter yet nuanced literary allusions, & images i spend too much time making (gifs gifs gifs). Because this is worth it. #ThisIsWhy
This 'development', the article does not note, is beside this capital-generating structure, and an important public space. Good thing I checked, because if you read @tlupick's article, I am already pissed off about this! straight.com/news/1015846/r…

UNFAITHFUL SHEPHERDS

"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian #Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.

A quick, angry #history thread about Room 40 because apparently historians are still making shit up about its location. Last year Barry Gough wrote that it was "in a quiet wing of the Old Admiralty Building". 1/
Those windows outlined in green? That's Room 40. Where the blue lines are? That's the Board Room. @thehistoryguy should know, he's been filmed in it, but still talked rubbish about Room 40. The red lines? The Chief of the Staff's office. In orange? The war room. 2/
The light blue lines are where the Director of Intelligence Division (later DNI)'s office was (he later moved next door). Pink is Alfred Ewing's office where the codebreaking effort began. Dark blue is where the First Sea Lord moved his office later in the war. 3/

Tiap kali bila ada munculnya isu Hak Bumiputera entah kenapa salah satu perkara yang akan dipertikaikan ialah asal-usul orang Melayu itu sendiri dan sejarah mereka.
Tidak mengapa, di sini saya akan tulis sejarah ringkas mengenai asal-usul orang Melayu. Ini mungkin akan menjawab soalan sama ada "Melayu itu pendatang?" atau tidak.

1. Most #Patriots are well aware of the #DeepState entrenched inside our government. What most people don’t understand is how this shadowy super- structure of hidden power is so well-organized.

#QAnon #FreeTommyRobinson #PatriotsUnite #GreatAwakening #UnitedWeStand #WeThePeople
2. The web of entrenched interests in the US government has been able to wield power over the US government and beyond for decades. The following speech by U.S. Senator William E. Jenner in 1954 helps explain the Deep State’s objective.
#QAnon @POTUS @realDonaldTrump #WeThePeople
3. This ability to control the US Government from the shadows and transform our Country for so long is a testament to how well-organized it is. But what holds it all together? And even more importantly, who are the treasonous forces that control the #DeepState?
