Why are all those foreign mega corporations and oil companies donating to the Tory party? Millions of pounds pumped in to persuade politicians to trash EU regulations meant to protect the public and the planet. Do you seriously believe this is for you and your families benefit?
Far right Tories will soon be dictating what you eat, where your kids go to school, how much you pay for energy, healthcare, housing, how your workers rights will change...clue, you won't have any because post Brexit Neo-Feudalism is coming. #Libertarian
A country so mired in populism doesn't commit econocide on itself without a plan. Burn everything down to the ground, cause untold pain and suffering on your own citizens lives and livelihoods. So you have a clean slate? Next invite the oligarchs and libertarians to set up shop.

First, check out this remarkable @Techcrunch article called "Geeks for Monarchy".

Long before the 2016 election brought us a #Trump/#Putin/#Theil/#AltRight mashup of craziness, @klintron laid out this #antidemocracy ideology waaaaaay back in 2013.

The UK Govt are protecting disaster capitalists while allowing them to stealthily undermine the Rule of Law and the welfare state. A now weakened UK is totally exposed to libertarian exploitation when the country should be rebuilding new ways to counter corporate aggression.
Tories working in secret partnership with @iealondon facilitated Brexit with help from the worst of the worst advocates of unleashing free market chaos on stable economies. Dr. Barbara Kolm, Shankar Singham, Grover Norquist and +450 r/w think tanks flush with wads of dark money.
These traitors of democracy are well and truly in place at the highest levels of Govt, influencing policy decisions that will abolish workers rights, cement low taxes on the wealthy 1%, annihilate public spending and enforce privatisation on all public sectors. #Libertarian

Tories have compromised national security, rewritten laws to accommodate inhumane policies that Putin would be proud of, punished the most vulnerable in society, destroyed British trade, replaced EU funding with crumbs and allowed energy firms to reap profits while overcharging
your families with astronomical bills. Post Brexit, they've allowed all England and Wales rivers to be pumped full of shit, done limp dodgy trade deals with countries on the other side of the world, deals that will see cheap food banned in the EU flood the UK market because of
Brexit deregulation. They have opened up free market chaos that will ensure multinationals will eviscerate British farming and replace the NHS with US style Healthcare that will see your family selling their homes for any major operations.

Russia has fomented the rise of the far right across central and eastern Europe. Like a virus attacking its host, malign Russian influence seeks out and attacks democracies.
Eroding the foundations of democracies takes years to fully achieve the desired destabilizing and disabling effects, as the western model of democracy becomes more discredited and undermined so the Kremlin’s model rises up.
Russia’s networks of influence are complex, rendering a countries ability to conduct oversight through transparency, accountability and the rule of law extremely vulnerable to exploitation and manipulation.

Economic violence inflicted on the UK during times of crisis is a right wing libertarian tactic as old as the hills. In the 80's Charles Koch used his wealth to foment 'division, argue for limited Govt, lower corporate taxes, cripple public spending and
theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
deregulate environmental protections and workers rights. You see the pattern here? The Tories goal post Brexit is for total reform and 'anarcho-totalitarianism', the reshaping of the entire countries economy and culture. Lawbreaking, relentless corruption and endless lies,
a Govt in permanent campaign mode, forever dangling the 'Global Britain carrot' the 'Brexit Opportunities' the 'We're the best at everything in the world' fueled by the demonising of the other that goes hand in hand with Libertarian zealotry; the evil EU, 'the enemy within'

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) since 2018 are are taking dark money from corporations like British American Tobacco and Big Tech along with Arms manufacturers & Healthcare
Weapons makers and private firms donate £13m to get exclusive access to MPs opendemocracy.net/en/dark-money-…
businesses. Since 2018 over £25 million in donations from the private sector to APPG's, these are massive conflicts of interest that are the result of post Brexit deregulation and will harm the public sector irreparably. Private donors remain hidden with no accountability
This all amounts to insidious 'back door' lobbying with one Tory MP telling openDemocracy 'I am not releasing anything to you.' In times of crisis disaster capitalists get their foot in the door of democracies and aided by the right wing wreak havoc while cost of living soars.

Tories attacks on the disadvantaged cannot conceal their endless subcontracting scams with taxpayers money, next 2 years £25billion goes to corporate tax incentives. Yet these breaks will absolve corporations of improving public services. Those less well off are made to pay 1/1
as this Govt continues its course of cruel punishment of the welfare state with cuts on UC, fuel/food price hikes causing soaring energy bills/hyperinflation. All during times of crisis, in the past people used to pull together, now Tory populism and greed cause division 2/2
and resentment. This is a grotesque state of affairs where the contrasts between rich and poor widen on an almost daily basis. The Tories show no remorse followed by empty campaigning promises that never see the light of day. They believe they are special, that they deserve 3/3

Heart of populist Brexit beats with unrestrained passion for the Tories favourite authors/economists, Hayek, Rand, Friedman, Buchanan, W.Rees-Mogg. The world bore witness to what was inflicted, so many caught in the disaster capitalist maelstrom, now the UK sucked into its vortex
Economic violence runs parallel to military tactics of war, 'Go in hard and fast' nothing gradual, no time to recuperate from shocks the Tories unleashed on its own people. Like a boomerang Brexit returns, hammers the UK with the real pain of its ideology on a myopic public/press
When the Tories ousted party moderates, the ERG and its vast network of right wing libertarians and oligarchs seized the opportunity to force through the clean slate, far right extremists throughout history lay off a countries workforce in order to exact revenge on socialism.

History shows that Iraq's missing billions in 2004 were part of the US wiping away a whole culture and country and replacing it with free market corporations that destroyed over 200 state controlled firms. Fast forward to Dido's absconding of £37 billion of taxpayers money 1/1
during the pandemic, another £35 billion that is owed to the NHS since officially leaving the EU in 2020, another £4,3 billion written off by the Govt through fraud last week and a devastating pattern of economic violence emerges courtesy of right wing libertarians. #ToryLies
As UK trade collapses, EU funding is replaced with pitiful crumbs from the Govt's table, deregulation is rapidly shoehorned in allowing multinationals to asset strip companies and flood the UK with cheap imports banned in the EU. Brexit is the segue into full blown privatisation.

Brexit-Loving Koch Acolytes Are Getting Rich Off Climate Change Denial in the UK splinternews.com/brexit-loving-…
Elliotts took funding from Koch and Mercer to pave the way towards smaller Govt and climate denial/deregulation, remember how #COP26 went tits up? The Tories have opened the floodgates to intense fossil fuel mining in the north sea, paid by corporate free market libertarians.
Sheer number of right wing think tanks supposedly non profit are keen to hide who their funders are, it is a scandal of the highest degree that corporate money dictates Govt policy, Brexit would not have happened if legislation was in place to stop disaster capitalist wreak havoc

This ERG Govt have instrumented Brexit as a pseudo nationalist Trojan Horse to unleash and destabilize the entire economic infrastructure of the UK. They are implementing a return to feudalism, they are obsessed with property, the Gold Standard and utterly demolishing the state.
Alejandro Chafuen 'For libertarians, removing the state as the final authority to define money might be the most consistent path.' This is about blind faith in free markets and not being accountable to Govt or the rule of law. Extremely dangerous. #libertarian #BrexitReality
Hayek - "If we ever again are going to have sound money, it will not come from Govt... it will be issued by private enterprise." Libertarians, the ERG/Govt have used this as a procedural template for the mess the UK is in as a result of a dark money fueled Brexit. #GTTO

This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

He @Booker4KY, want any ammo to go after @RandPaul for stuff that's useless? Because this can help.
I mean from a Self-declared "#Libertarian", who seriously isn't he's #SocialConservative at best, it's not hard to dig up dirt on @RandPaul of his Voting Records. Like the 2016 Tax Bill that gave more money to the #Rich, Supports Banning #Abortion (which isn't Libertarian),...
Opposes #LGBTQIA Rights like Same Sex Marriage & wanted it to be banned, Rand is inconsistent on #MilitarySpending of sometimes leaning to not for it or for it in offensive wars (which many Libertarians call that out & believe in Defense of a Direct Threat of an Attack)...

@CoachFelecia From time-to-time, ethnic personalities similar to that of #AndyNgo have appeared in right-wing movements ..

You just have to look for them.

These "ethnic" individuals aren't there to discover the truth!
@CoachFelecia They are their to provide a service. That is their value.

What is the service? They are weaponized to confuse the public while empowering "lily-white" delusions about black people.
@CoachFelecia These individuals...

Never thought their life could be

1) I read w/ interest the 24/3 @hartgroup_org #Covid19 bulletin.

”..there is no evidence that masks significantly ⬇️ transmission when worn routinely in REAL-WORLD SETTINGS.”

A RCT of 😷wearing during a pandemic of an #airborne 🦠would surely be completely unethical? ImageImage
2)”...face coverings are fuelling widespread, irrational fear when the current viral threat is very low & the vulnerable have been vaccinated.”

The ⬇️in cases has completely flattened & the majority of vulnerable ppl have had 1 vaccine dose.
Fear of an #airborne 🦠IS RATIONAL.
3) “Hart believes the Government should now lift the *mask* mandate & allow ppl to decide for themselves whether to wear one.”

A group of scientists, healthcare professionals & psychologists etc believe THIS is the right moment to ditch the wearing of 😷s?
Staggering!

In 2016 almost 92 million people didn't vote at all in the general election. Almost 66 million voted for Clinton, almost 53 million for Trump. Only 10 million TOTAL voted for a third party or independent.

I haven't seen any news stories about this, but @nsarwark reports that the @LPNational #Libertarian presidential candidate @Jorgensen4POTUS / VP candidate @RealSpikeCohen will be on the ballot in all 50 states plus DC. Image
This is actually @Jorgensen4POTUS's second time on every single American presidential ballot.

In 1996, she was the Libertarian Party's VP nominee, and the party also had blanket ballot access then.

See my interview with Dr. Jorgensen here:

I haven't yet had a chance to interview Libertarian VP nominee @RealSpikeCohen myself yet, but for an idea of what he brings to the ticket, here's a video shot by @SCWKorsgaard for @N2Sreports of him speaking at a #BlackLivesMatter / #Boogaloo rally.

On Saturday, Boogaloo activists, Black Lives Matter activists, and Black Panthers gathered in Richmond, Virginia for a rally against gun control.

Libertarian Party @LPNational VP Candidate @RealSpikeCohen spoke at the event.

Photos/Vid in thread by @SCWKorsgaard for @N2Sreports ImageImageImage
"We can't say that all lives matter until we show that Black lives matter," said @LPNational VP candidate @RealSpikeCohen. "We can't show that #BlackLivesMatter until we get rid of the gun control laws that make it so hard for y'all to defend your lives in the first place."
Asking for their vote, @RealSpikeCohen told the crowd that he and @Jorgensen4POTUS would "end the war on guns... end the war on drugs, and end qualified immunity and end civil asset forfeiture, and end no-knock raids, and end cash bail, and end mandatory minimum sentencing."

I sat down with #Libertarian @LPNational presidential candidate Jo @Jorgensen4POTUS.

On police: She says federal gov't has militarized local police into looking like "soldiers" with "us versus them" mentality. She'd like to reverse that.

Full interview:
On #BlackLivesMatter, she sees common ground with the movement in general, but clarifies that she doesn't agree with national BLM leadership who have identified themselves as "Marxist."

She says government is "causing the problems" and "big government" can't be the solution.
On the nationwide protests, @Jorgensen4POTUS draws a distinction "between the peaceful protesters" and "opportunists who are hijacking the movement."

She says that the #Antifa movement is "probably more fascist than even our government."

Since we're still debating the appropriateness of inviting Gen. James Mattis to join the #Libertarian Party, it got me reminiscing about my old friend and colleague Admiral Michael Colley. Adm. Colley joined the party in 2003 and won a seat on the national committee in 2004. 1/n
As it turned out, Adm. Colley and I tied for the 5th spot for At-Large. He won the tiebreaker, and I must say that turned out well. He served three terms on the LNC, benefiting us not only with the incredible administrative experience that comes with being an Admiral... 2/n
but also his incredibly kind and jovial spirit. He humbly helped any way he could. At one state convention we both attended, he looked at me with big grin and shouted out from the podium, "Hey, I voted for you!" I replied, "I voted for you too! And I'm glad I did!" 3/n
