I would also like to point out that when Pompeo wrote me this letter, he cc’d my boss.
John Allen, Brookings President, did not fire me...
But it comes to mind on an evening when three House committees wrote to warn the man about trying to intimidate potential impeachment inquirry witnesses. Remember: this is how he acted over a Christmas letter and a fudge recipe.

"Tror Sarnecki och Löfven att människor inte klarar av att förstå att den ökning av dödsskjutningar vi sett sedan 1990 har med migration och integration att göra? 

Sluta dumförklara allmänheten, skriver Mattias Lindberg."

expressen.se/debatt/nar-ska…
"Det är surrealistiskt hur politiker och kriminologer vägrar tala klarspråk om att det finns ett orsakssamband mellan ökade gängskjutningar i Sverige och den migrations- och integrationspolitik som bedrivits de senaste decennierna."
"När Stefan Löfven intervjuades i SVT och fick frågan om det var misslyckad integration som låg bakom gängvåldet så bekräftade han inte det, utan pratade i stället allmänt om att arbetslöshet inte var bra för den arbetslöse."

So former GOP Gov Mike Huckabee (Sarah's dad) is touring Russia & the Baltics. So ignorant, he shows off selfie in Estonia—in front of a Russian Orthodox Church—& praises Estonians cherishing freedom🤦‍♀️Yea—They were occupied by Russia & Russian churches are known influence agents.
So Huckabee's in Russia. The country is convulsing under the weight of Putin's authoritarian repression. 50,000 protesters took to the streets last weekend. The Kremlin is jailing opposition leaders, beating random ppl. But GOP Huckabee's joking about Putin's shirtless agitprop!
Here's former Republican Gov (now @FoxNews propagandist) Mike Huckabee on the Baltic Sea, dining with pro-Trump propagandist Rick Santorum (still on @CNN for some reason). He mocks collusion, the media, & spews Clinton & Obama conspiracy theories. All in a day's propaganda work.

FWIW the fox poll that finds ~40% for impeachment refers to people who answered the question “impeach and remove from office” in the affirmative. That is a much higher bar than an impeachment inquiry. Other academic, non-for-profit polling has found ~50/50 when just “impeachment”
This proportion of pro/anti impeachment has been roughly stable since last August.
MSM giving more credence to eg WSJ polls (last I checked that is a biased towards conservatives operation) than an academic consortium of polls. Odds for impeachment pre Mueller was like ~+300 I think. If those odds improve, that is real movement.

I’ll just say it.

This am, after Nadler gave his public statement, pretty sure WaPo, NYT, Twitter et al. declared an impeachment inquiry had been commenced.

By this evening, it’s that an impeachment inquiry has yet to begin.

How about this MSM: slow your MF roll.

#reality
And the lack of continuity within the same day of hot takes doesn’t help. Criticizing congress re the Mueller testimony for not orchestrating a coherent narrative ready for the big screen is a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. #JustSaying
BTW, what the heck happened to holding the megalomaniac, Bill Barr, in contempt? #wtf

Walking about #Castlemaine today. What a glorious beautiful winter’s day.
Castlemaine Post Office. There’s a bit of life in the streets. Going to explore the town and head into the Saturday morning markets and see what town folk do on weekends.
“The art of deriving comfort, well being and energy from wild landscapes and convivial interiors” - love this. Alas I don’t have wild landscapes in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne so that’s why I love travelling and experiencing these instead. Hence why I’m in Castlemaine.

First stop towards Bendigo Wool and Sheep Show. A hearty breakfast of wonderful sourdough breads @WoodfrogBakery with @malmade1
And away we go! I think it’s like the Knitters Pilgrimage to Bendigo. The annual ode to the sheep. Knitters all around Australia are “flocking” to regional Victoria!
Lots of chatter in the car so we got on the wrong highway so what does that mean? More time for knitting.

“... they had their own people.”

Marc Turi, talking about HRC/Obama arming terrorists in MENA

I haven’t validated that this photo is of the same area yet, but it is provided by neon revolt...

It’s clearly a tent or some type of temporary roof structure to conceal what is underneath.

This isn’t a damn tennis court.

📣 THREAD: Oral arguments on the insane #TexasFoldEm #ACA case will happen on Tuesday before a 3-judge panel for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
One judge is a Jimmy Carter appointee.
One is a George W. Bush appointee.
One is a Donald Trump appointee.
1/
As @mattbc just noted, while a HUGE social media presence to #SaveTheACA is expected (as well as real world protests/rallies, etc), the sad truth is that there's very little which can be done to influence the 5th Circuit panels' decision. They're lifetime judicial appointees. 2/
As he also pointed out, while the *hearing* will happen on Tuesday, they likely won't announce their *decision* on the case for several weeks or even months...and the odds are that their decision will then be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court regardless of how they rule. 3/

"Er will überleben - wie es mir geht ist ihm scheiß egal.

Hauptsache er überlebt."

(Zitate aus dem Film - Kurt-André Lion)

Wie er Eltern über die Kinder setzt und den Kindern damit den schwarzen Peter zuschiebt.

Zum Thema Essen hat er ja eine spannende Haltung der Herr Lion

"Spannung rausnehmen"

nur

warum tut er es dann nicht.

Im Gegenteil, er baut an anderer Stelle massive Spannung auf.
Aufgrund eines Machtverhältnisses.

Das Kind erbricht sich (Min 16.00)

die dort sitzende Elternschaft lacht.

Keiner sieht, dass das Kind weit vorher schon weit überfordert war.
Der Druck kam schon an ganz anderer Stelle zum tragen.

Aber die Elternschaft sieht es einfach nicht.
Sie lacht.

(1/12) "Geben Sie uns Ihr Handy!" Mit diesem Satz begann vor Monaten unsere @SZ Recherche zur #OperationHonigbiene

Ein Informant hatte uns eine App zugespielt, die ihm an einer Landgrenze zu #China auf dem Handy installiert wurde.

#thread!
(2/12) Sieht eigentlich ganz harmlos aus. Die Beamten erklärten nicht, was die App kann oder warum sie installiert wird. Ohne Anfangsverdacht muss jeder Reisende seine Geräte aushändigen. Sie bekommen sie später kommentarlos zurück. Deshalb haben wir uns das genauer angeschaut.
(3/12) Wir ist untertrieben. Dabei waren von der @SZ @Remrow @cutterkom @femeb @n_richter @f_obermaier @Lea_Deuber Aber auch Experten von der @ruhrunibochum, dem @OpenTechFund und dem @citizenlab. Dazu die großartigen Kollegen @josephfcox @hilaryosborne @zhonggg @sveckert

Dear Miss Coffee fan, before you make the next coffee run to purchase a watermark meme 🙄 can you help a fellow citizen out please. A Polish National who resides in the UK is taking money from American citizens to donate to American charities, does this not concern you?
I see no logic! Payments are in GBP, estimated £9,038 😳 Now fair is fair, if Roar has donated, granted, job well done, that's a ⭐ from me. When "collecting" money to donate to charities, EVERY dime/pound must be accounted for.
Why is the Roastmaster not providing REAL receipts. You may believe the few posted are real however I beg to differ, let's take a closer look 👀

Long thread, sorry, has been coming since autumn 2016, when I tried to explain to many undergrads what Brexit means, and the election of Trump. And added that when Trump would find a PM in BoJo there would be war over Iran. I've got those students as witnesses. And written record
At a news roundtable in 2014 Pompeo claimed that military strikes could be highly successful in destroying Iran’s nuclear capacity: “It is under 2,000 sorties to destroy the Iranian nuclear capacity. This is not an insurmountable task for the coalition forces.”
In April 2015, Senator Cotton told USA Today that he was confident military strikes would be effective and “air and naval bombing of Iran’s nuclear facilities would in fact work.”

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

@RepRashida says she finds a “calming feeling” when thinking of the holocaust. This is what that scum of Michigan finds “calming”... You feel calm???

Not if you're human.

⚠️Warning⚠️ not a calming thead to follow. Please share, we must never forget!!! @RepRashida is a monster.
I would like to share the experience of a close family friend, God rest his soul. Dr Ben David Lew was born in Poland in the later 1920s. To a family of all boys, five in total.
His parents were orthodox Jewish, no alcohol or tobacco was allowed in the home. Not even playing cards. He and his father played chess. One day... Everything changed in an instant.

✅ ~1964-1965 Bill Barr’s old man is headmaster of Dalton
✅ ~1973-1975 Jeffrey Epstein hired as a teacher at Dalton
✅ ~1975 Old man Barr resigns reportedly bc believed strongly in “the unitary theory of headmaster power” & values opp Dalton

1/2
✅ ~1979 excellent critically lauded film, Manhattan, by Woody Allen debuts. Plot focuses on Allen, playing a middle-aged man, having a romantic/sexual love affair w a 17 yr old high school student. The high school in the movie was said to be [...squints...] Dalton. #JustSaying
(Allen had his pick of elite UES private schools to choose from when writing Manhattan and deciding where his 17 yr old lover character should matriculate. Maybe he values realism? 🤔) #WoodyAllen #Manhattan #BillBarr

@tribelaw Donald Trump is not kidding. The gop are collectively displaying signs common to those held hostage, who have experienced prolonged intimate partner emotional abuse, or who were in the German parliament as Hitler was rising to power. #GOPStockholm #BrainwashedGOP #CultShit

@tribelaw Noteworthy: John McCain was held hostage. He did not develop Stockholm-like behavior. Trump hated him. The GOP has Trump induced stockholm-like features. Trump is ok with them.

#Beluru #Channakeshava temple, from Epigraphia Carnatica, Vol 5. Notice the gopura which is not there anymore.
There was a gopura before 1397 CE, which was destroyed by an attack - and a new gopura built during Harihara II of Vijayanagara.

Only this one did not survive too to the present day. :(
How I wish this was true today! @nirbhaavuka

THREAD: The mediatic normalization of „Wacko Jacko”

A thread dedicated to how the medias - especially the tabloid press but not only - have contributed to bestialise @MichaelJackson in the public eyes over the decades #MichaelJackson #MJfam #Whoswacko
I dedicate this #Shameonyou thread to @TheSun and all tabloids that have actively contributed to spread the nickname #WackoJacko, among them the @TheNationalEnquirer, @theNewyorkpost @theDailymirror.
1) The roots of #WackoJacko : Jacko = M.O.N.K.E.Y

Let’s begin with the roots of the Jacko name with the story of Jacco Maccacco, the "accrobatic monkey" exhibited during animal fights in the early 19th century ⤵️⤵️⤵️
