#Ukraine War Exposes Biden's Lies About #Yemen

Biden, while promoting his electoral campaign, was talking about the “Yemen War,” and allocated a large area of that campaign to it, in a clear polarization of public opinion and the anti-war media; And to win the votes of

Dice la compagna di Jamal Khashoggi che né l'Onu né la UE hanno avviato procedimenti legali contro gli assassini del giornalista ucciso e massacrato nel consolato arabo a Istanbul su mandato del regime di bin Salman.
Proprio come per #Assange le istituzioni politiche che dicono di lavorare per i diritti, la giustizia si voltano dall'altra parte e lasciano che gli interessi economici prevalgano.
Nessuno alza la voce coi regimi, non lo fa l'Italia con l'Egitto che nega giustizia e verità su Giulio Regeni perché gli affari vengono prima, non lo fa l'occidente col regime barbaro che solo qualche giorno fa ha eseguito un centinaio di condanne a morte in un giorno solo

Turkey to hand Khashoggi trial over to Saudis.

The journalist was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018.

Handing case to Riyadh will "reinforce Saudi authorities' apparent belief that they can get away with murder", says Human Rights Watch

1. In recent weeks, #Saudi opposition, linked to extremists & to #Qatar, including Lina Al-Hathloul have been trying to once again draw attention to Loujain Al Hathloul in an effort to renew the view of her as a victim a year after her release.…
2. As a reminder Loujain Al Hathloul once campaigned for women's rights to drive but once #MBS came to power and this form of lobbying & activism became irrelevant, switched to propaganda against #KSA on foreign channels in exchange for funding & fame.
3. Al Hathloul, after repeated warnings, was eventually tried & convicted for violations of relevant laws similar to the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (#FARA), which also carries criminal penalties depending on the extent of violations.

Thread: How #Qatar rigged the #AbrahamAccords to fail
1. In a previous thread, I raised questions about the stalemate & possible deterioration in #Morocco-#Israel-US relations after what seemed to be a promising start.
2. I posited that a group of greedy, corrupt, and incompetent executors from #Israel & the US and their #Moroccan cronies are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In particular, I pointed to the dubious role of Jared Kushner's group & their counterparts.
3. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye. #AbrahamAccords was a great idea, but when left in the hands of crooks & unscrupulous pawns of foreign regimes, it was designed to fail and ended up being nothing more than a pricey scam attracting chiefly con artists.

#Wirecard hat in der Bilanz 2018 offenbar Scheingeschäfte in Asien durch neue Scheingeschäfte ersetzt. Trotz zahlreicher Ungereimtheiten bekam der damalige DAX-Konzern von #EY ein uneingeschränktes Testat - bemerkenswert! Warum? Ein #Thread zur Recherche mit @JosefStreule👇
Am 24.4.2019 trifft sich der Wirecard-Aufsichtsrat. #EY erstellt dafür eine Präsentation. Darin steht: Bei mehreren Tochterfirmen in Asien seien Scheinumsätze in Höhe von 10 Mio. € entdeckt worden. Die müssen raus aus der Bilanz. 11 Mio. € kommen dafür rein.👇
"Einbuchung von bislang nicht erfassten Umsatzerlösen", steht in der Präsentation. Unsere Recherchen zeigen: Auch diese nachträglich verbuchten Umsätze gibt es nicht. #Wirecard stellt diesen Vorgang danach im Geschäftsbericht als eine Art Buchungsfehler dar.👇

This is one of the most disturbing foreign influence campaigns I have seen to date. Far from merely trying to intimidate particularly diaspora groups, this is a barely concealed foreign backed effort to influence US policy & to weaponize USG.…
1. The pro-#Qatar, pro-#Iran, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood forces behind this effort are looking to use USG to shut down rivals and critics both in other countries and in the US.
2. Members of foreign governments & their "agents" (potentially anyone who agrees with them) can be banned from traveling to the US if found to be linked to "intimidation" of "dissidents" as recommended by said pro-#Qatar, pro-MB, and pro-#Iran organizations & "civil society".

Don't we only address violence against women in #UK by confronting violence built into our society?

We'll fail if we ignore violence we impose on #GlobalSouth because of #ClimateBreakdown, imperialist foreign policy with its associated militarism. 1/n

My heart bleeds 4 the family of woman taken just 2 miles from where I live (I have a 20 year old daughter walking these same streets) and for all the other victims of violence.

But this isn't a men vs. women issue + if we truly want 2 tackle the issue we must #TellTheTruth 2/n
Yes #TellTheTruth to rejecting ALL #violence:

For example, the violence of #inequality, #racism, #sexism.

The violence we are imposing on future generations and #GlobalSouth by failing to address #ClimateBreakdown (as highlighted by @XRebellionUK)

THREAD: Listening to the new episode of @GaslitNation, "Why Does the GOP Vote to Hurt Their Own Base?" with @sarahkendzior and @AndreaChalupa!

The GOP "has refashioned itself as an apocalyptic cult seeking one-party rule."
"The American political & economic system is designed to make you feel like you are worthless. But you are worth more than they tell you, & part of the struggle the next few years is resisting the cult mentality... that tells you to not ask for what you deserve." - @sarahkendzior
"Demand better. Always push for better, because that's how you get progress...The federal minimum wage hasn't been raised since something like 2009, and it's one of the contributing factors to why we have crisis levels of income inequality." - @AndreaChalupa

This guy has waged war in the south of Saudi Arabia and created the worst humanitarian crisis that is not only a stain on Saudi Arabia but also on the US, on everybody who helped the Saudis wage this war. It’s still ongoing,” Abdullah Alaoudh, a Saudi academic said.

A Turkish court trying 26 Saudi nationals in absentia for the murder of Jamal #Khashoggi has refused to admit as evidence a recent US intelligence report implicating the kingdom’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, despite a petition from the journalist’s fiancée, Hatice Cengiz
The declassified US report released last Friday said Washington believed that Prince Mohammed approved the operation to “capture or kill” #Khashoggi.
In the third session of the Istanbul trial on Thursday, Cengiz’s petition to add the report to the evidence case file was rejected on the grounds that it would “bring nothing” to the trial. #Khashoggi

Exiled dissidents who have been warned about threats against them by Saudi Arabia said they have been put in greater danger by the Biden administration’s decision to forgo direct sanctions on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman – Jamal #Khashoggi.
the 35-year-old crown prince would be emboldened after the White House declined to sanction him.
“The Biden administration’s release of the ODNI report [into Jamal #Khashoggi murder] is welcomed transparency, but the lack of direct accountability will give MBS permanent impunity, rendering him more dangerous

On Friday, Joe Biden’s administration confirmed what the world knew: that Saudi Arabia’s ruthless crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, approved the assassination of Washington Post columnist Jamal #Khashoggi in 2018.
Biden failed to keep a more important promise: to hold #Khashoggi’s killers accountable. Worried about disrupting the US-Saudi relationship, Biden decided not to impose sanctions on the crown prince.
