THREAD: @EU_Commission could open Excessive Deficit Procedure against #Italy within the next few weeks. This is much earlier than generally understood. As @AlvaroISLM and I explain in this @piie blogpost piie.com/blogs/realtime… a sanction could be imposed at the same time
2/ Until this 10/18 letter ec.europa.eu/info/sites/inf… from @EU_Commission, it was generally understood that an EDP in the corrective arm of the Stability and Growth Pact (or a Significant Deviation Procedure in its preventive arm) could only be opened in 2019
3/ The basic reason for that understanding was that both levers of the SGP could be activated against Italy but based on fiscal outcomes rather than on fiscal plans as explained by @gregclaeys and Antoine Mathieu-Collin in this @bruegel_org post bruegel.org/2018/10/italys…

Thread: Italian UFO Conference with Luis Elizondo and Tom DeLonge. Lue: The topic of UAPs is an emotional topic for many. And Tom, I and our colleagues are not here to change your mind or position. Just here to provide facts and data and let you decide.
He will split it into two parts. Technical problems so no slides right now. Ten minutes about TTSA and how we got here today. Lue throws it over to Tom for his story and how TTSA came together.
Tom: I started this company about two years ago when I painstakingly met a group of very high ranking US officials. And they kindly listened to an idea that I had to create a vehicle for disclosure. I then met another group of high ranking gov't officials, like Lue, and we

What we are currently witnessing in U.S. Equity markets has been building for some time and has already been well underway globally. This is simply the next chapter.

The Global Reset continues.
The Reason for The Global Reset is that Risk prices have been distorted globally for a decade due to excessive manipulation by Central Banks across all asset classes, beginning with Sovereign Credit.
In 2015 and 2016, the Cycle attempted to turn due to natural Cyclical facts like mispriced high yield debt and a slowdown in China, but the Global Central Banks refused to allow this to happen.

They conducted one last coordinated intervention in early 2016 across the globe.

Good morning from #Copenhagen, #Denmark 😀Another exciting week in the market. Hope you are up for some #HZupdates. We are imo getting closer to an inflection point where things will start to develop fast. Stay tuned! 👍
😀 I would like to see how many #FinTwit users read my #HZupdates on a weekly basis. Will you please answer by a simply "yes" or "no" to the question: I read #HZupdates every weekend. Thanks! 👍
#SP500 I think we pot. have a full count for US #equities. I see a test of the lower trendline (yellow mark) as a given. How successful that test turns out will give us a lot of info. #HZupdates

Thread: I am hearing a lot of talk about a second referendum and going back to the question of reforming #freemovement, including this report from @sundersays on @nick_clegg's conversations around #Europe. I think this is a dangerous route to go. Here is why.
First, I am sure that governments across the EU have concerns about abuse of free movement. But this abuse, while serious, is marginal and receives very little attention from media and public opinion on the Continent.
Second, while some minor reforms to #freemovement are not only possible but also necessary, as @COdendahl and myself explain here - cer.eu/publications/a…, they won't happen any time soon and will surely be less likely to happen if a perceived 'blackmailing' comes from UK again

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread ✔
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

2/
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

The 5 Star League coalition in #Italy is now 4 months old. What should we make of it? A thread @CER_EU
Italy has a more confrontational approach to the EU picking fights on migration, the EU budget and Italy’s finances. Salvini has driven the agenda on immigration, and the League has benefitted – polling 30% vs 17% in the general election
Italy’s run in with EU has been milder then feared. Plans for a 2.4% budget deficit are a big climb-down from early plans for a 7% deficit. If both the Five Star and the League can claim victory, the optics of spat with the EU will matter more than the substance of the budget.

Fascinating info from field study on #migrantworkers in #Italy ‘s farms.

In Ragusa, Romanians (new to sector) get worse wages than Tunisians (long connections, unionized)! >
Farmwork is increasingly women’s work in Italy. Asylum-seeking mothers with humanitarian permits work on farms - because having children mean employers won’t take them for domestic work.
Those fresh oranges from #Italy? The farmer got 35 cents for a kilo. Picked by Africans, Albanians, Romanians for low low wages with shitty accommodation.

(⛔🚢BREAKING) NO WAY OUT. As fighting in #Tripoli rages on, this August just 1,300 #migrants left #Libya in an attempt to reach Europe by sea.

This is the LOWEST Summer figure since 2012.

#Libia
Migrants are trapped in #Libya, often in appalling conditions. Made even worse by the recent fighting in #Tripoli.
FOLLOW this crucial reporting by @sallyhayd. 👇

(⛔🚢BREAKING) Of the 742 that made it to Europe from #Libya this August, less than a third (234) disembarked in Italy. Of these, 190 were onboard an Italian Coast Guard ship during the "#Diciotti standoff".

Another 56% (416) disembarked in Malta.
12% (87) disembarked in Spain.

Sea arrivals in #Spain are increasing.
But the closure of a #migration route doesn't mean that automatically migrants just move to a different one. There is little evidence of a 'route replacement' trend.
#migrationEU
This is an important reminder that 'immigration policies' can affect migration flows but are hardly the only factor at play. The drivers of #migration are multiple and can't be reduce to the political will 'at destination'.
There is an overall and significant decrease in sea arrivals, which should be a warning for everyone still using the word 'migration crisis', but this is not the case, see newint.org/features/web-e… #Salvini #Italy

Daisy Osakue, a young talented Italian athlete, (👇🏻) was the case today in #Italy. There is a long recent list of allegedly racially-motivated attacks. Was Daisy attacked because she is black? Is #Italy racist? Or is #Italy becoming more racist, given the new government? THREAD
First of all, I must say that I will try to handle this thorny subject as much sensitive and deep as possible, trying to avoid easy and superficial simplifications, despite it is not simple given the Twitter shortness. But I will try to do my best.
#Italy
#racism
1. There is a very common saying in #Italy: “Italiani brava gente”, which means “Italians are good people”. This motto spread easily after the Second World War. It was mainly a way for Italians to subtly distance themselves from the German Nazis, former allies. But is this true?

Today More in Common is releasing a groundbreaking study of #Italy's attitudes towards #populism, national identity and #immigration, undertaken with @IpsosItalia. Some surprising findings: Italians are pro-migrant and anti-immigration. Here's my key takeouts: /1
We found 7 population segments in Italy: 27% with 'open' values, 24% with 'closed' values, and 48% in one of the 'middle' groups. Similar to other countries - but with more segments and more diversity of opinion in every group moreincommon.com/italy-report1 /2
Italy's populist wave is driven more by a rejection of political elites than by migration. 73% say traditional politicians don't care about people like them. Only 18% think globalisation has been good for Italy. 57% agree Italy needs a strong leader willing to break the rules /3

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)

Today,Sadly @Twitter suspended my account after members of cult-like #MEK terror Org reported me because I had criticized violation of Women's Rights in #MEK's camp in #Albania. They also threatened me to death this afternoon. #MEK & #Iran's Islamic Regime are two sides of a coin
#MEK's political wing, #NCRI which is falsely claiming to be secular is forcing its female soldiers to wear Hijab even during their rally in #Paris on 30/06/2018. Speaking about #MEK's violation of women's rights make its leaders angry. This is why #MEK is unpopular in #Iran.
#MEK is being financially supported by #KSA in-order to start a civil war in #Iran similar to what is happening in #Syria now. But hopefully can't because official surveys held by Iranian opposition groups show the group is 2nd most hated Org. after the Islamic Regime in #Iran.

Thread on #Italy: 3 months after elections, Italy has a government representing 50 per cent of Italians. Any other solution would have seemed confected and undemocratic. The Five Star and the League will now have to come to terms with the reality of government @CER_EU
Italy's President took risks by vetoing Savona's appointment as finance minister, yet ultimately prevailed when the League and the 5S came back to the negotiating table and accepted that he would have to be moved to another ministry.
The new government is a hybrid of populism and technocracy, with 3 non politicians as ministers, including a minister from Monti's government as foreign minister.
