What is this amazing theory of change, that can do so much to right the world's wrongs? Fittingly, it's the same theory of change that got us into this mess. It's #MiltonFriedman's theory of change.

L'Histoire US du dimanche matin.
1 vieux politique texan Ben Barnes, pris par le remords de la mort prochaine de #JimmyCarter, confesse être allé avec son mentor Connally retarder la libération des otages en #Iran, pour Reagan, au Moyen Orient à l'été 1980…
2. Les éternels omniscients blasés de Twitter diront "Ah mais on le sait déjà que Reagan a fait retarder la libération des otages en #Iran contre Carter en 1980"...sauf que, non, précisément, on ne l'a jamais su de façon prouvée et définitive malgré bien des efforts officiels...
3. L'accusation d'1 complot de l'équipe Reagan contre la campagne Carter pour retarder la libération des otages en #Iran, après des années de rumeur "conspi", fut formulée en 1991 par l'ex-officier "Golfe Persique" de la Maison Blanche de Carter, Gary Sick…

1/On this day, #JimmyCarter was defeated by Ronald Reagan on the one-year anniversary of the hostage crisis. His Presidency deserves reevaluation and if today's Republicans had 1 percent of his decency, the world would be a better place.…
2/The latest historian Presidential rankings list him as #40 in a key category - luck. He had to deal with inflation caused by the end of Nixon's price controls and two oil shocks - the OPEC embargo and the Iranian revolution.
3/ Had the mission to rescue the hostages in Iran succeeded he likely would have been reelected.

Jimmy Carter embodies American ideals to me more than any other American. He's inspired me my entire life. As a kid, I wrote him a fan letter w/ a full page flag of Georgia I drew. He wrote back. Two years later, he became the President. :) Image
2/ Jimmy Carter and lovely Rosalynn Carter: happily married 76 years!!! They married July 7, 1946, at a little Methodist church in Plains, Georgia. I've always felt like his biggest fan, but at times, it was a small club. #JimmyCarter #RosalynnCarter ImageImageImage
3/ Did Jimmy Carter "tank the economy"? The stock market lost value, but we had good growth in GDP and jobs and peace between Israel and Egypt. I wish Carter had been harder on Iran (but NO war). He correctly advocated solar energy, fuel efficiency, etc. ImageImageImageImage

Here's the #Ivermectin saga, people.
1.) In the 1960s Japan's Satoshi Omura did chemistry work, trying to find a medicine to kill helminth worms in livestock.
2.) In the '70s he joined forces with Max Tischler at Wesleyan in USA.
3.) They brought...
...@Merck & @Kitasato pharma companies on board.
4.) Omura discovered a bacterium that emitted a powerful anti-helminth chemical.
5.) William Campbell @Merck tested it. Using synthetic chemistry, they made "ivermectin" -- 25Xs stronger than the bacterial chemical.

5.) The @Merck & Kitasato companies were thrilled to discover it cured a long list of livestock worm & parasitic diseases & a huge veterinary market opened.
6.) In 1981 Bangladeshi Mohamad Aziz showed that #Ivermectin could cure River Blindness, a terrible disease...

Regrettably, #JimmyCarter was a populist, opportunist & a superstitious #Democrat President.

in crisis of 1979, Carter, @WhiteHouse , @CIA, @DefenseIntel & @StateDept had no knowledge about Criminal Mullahs, Islamic Terrorism & lunatic Khomeini!

✔🇺🇸Jimmy Carter betrayed Shah!
In actuality, @CIA similar to @DefenseIntel , could n't estimate & predict the happening of revolution or terrorist revolt in Iran 1979.Then USA has faced a lot of challenges by the emergence of Mullah’s regime in Tehran
shamefully, #JimmyCarter was the 1st supporter of Khomeini!
one American Writer described the endorsement of #JimmyCarter for #Khomeini
there is no doubt about it!

Alan Dershowitz about Carter's antisemitism.
"Recent disclosures of Carter’s extensive financial connections to Arab oil money, particularly from Saudi Arabia, had deeply shaken my belief in his integrity. 2)
When I was first told that he received a monetary reward in the name of Shiekh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahayan, and kept the money, even after Harvard returned money from the same source because of its anti-Semitic history, I simply did not believe it. 3)

🇺🇸🗳️ Dans pile un mois, c’est le début d'une longue et palpitante saison électorale aux #EtatsUnis avec le caucus de l’#Iowa lors duquel 14 candidats vont concourir à l'investiture du parti démocrate. #primaires
🇺🇸🗳️ Au niveau national, peu d'évolutions en un an de campagne :

➡️#Biden reste en tête

➡️Les candidats de l’aile gauche #Sanders et #Warren le suivent à distance

➡️#Buttigieg est le seul autre candidat à se démarquer, les autres faisant (pour l’instant ?) de la figuration
🇺🇸🗳️ Mais les sondages nationaux ont peu d’importance à ce stade : si un candidat crée la surprise lors d’une des premières primaires, il peut impulser une dynamique à sa campagne (le « momentum ») qui l’avantagera lors des scrutins suivants.

#RobertOBrien, the new National Security Advisor, is virtually unknown within #foreignpolicy circles.

Who is he? @politico has a profile. Brief thread on what it shows <1/8>…
New NSA #RobertOBrien has none of the experience typically needed for arguably the most important job in #foreignpolicy/#nationalsecurity.

Here's what he was doing during his only prior stint in govt. I was working in NatSec at the time: These aren't significant posts <2/8>
New NSA #RobertOBrien is described as a "hostage negotiator," but it is unclear whether he has ever negotiated the release of a hostage. For example, he had nothing to do with release of citizens held by #NorthKorea (unlike #JimmyCarter, @BillClinton, Bill Richardson etc) <3/8>

#JimmyCarter, who'll be 95 Oct 1, questions whether he could have handled the presidency at 80.
"I hope there's an age limit," Carter said, without mentioning the names of Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, both of whom will be nearly 80 on Inauguration Day.…
Biden & Bernie would be in their mid-80s in 2024, making re-election questionable. Some Democrats have suggested a one-term presidency for both, but Carter can speak to the perils of that, also.
Conversely, Elizabeth Warren would be the age they are now at the end of two terms.
The job is the most stressful in the world.
At the midterms, I wrote about the surprising number of presidents who have had heart attacks, incapacitating strokes and have even died while in office.…

On July 3, 1979, #JimmyCarter signed two Presidential Findings for Afghanistan, marking the beginning of the United States’ program to covertly support the anti-government insurgents. #Afghanistan1979
The first Finding provided authorization to “support insurgent propaganda and other psychological operations in Afghanistan; establish radio access to the Afghan population through third country facilities;” and ...
... “provide unilaterally or through third countries as appropriate support to Afghan insurgents, either in the form of cash or non-military supplies.”

@realDonaldTrump has placed a pause in the infliction of a military response to #Iran's #unlawful and #unprovoked attacks on #ships in #internationalwaters and a US #drone in #internationalairspace.

His own explanation?

As his tweets explain, proposed targets for such response exceeded #proportionality. Setting aside damage to ships in international waters, loss of our drone inflicted between 120 and 180 million $$$$ in loss. Proposed strike might have caused up to 150 lives.
Trump correctly concluded that such a response lacked proportionality. That consideration is important.

Limiting our response to inflicting proportionate damage demonstrates both #wisdom and #justice.
