BREAKING German government will sell out everyone in Europe for Russian gas like Trump sold out the Kurds. Just the Germans do it systematically, knowingly, on diplomatic level and nothing will change their mind to get the gas. THREAD.
German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder for his exquisite services for securing NordStream gas pipeline to Germany got a seat in Gazprom board of directors. The NS income and the raising oil price bankrolled Russia's war against Georgia in 2008.
On July 17, 2008 German MFA Steinmeier arrived to Georgia with an Abkhazia peace plan where the Germany openly stated due to the risk of war in the region it puts into danger supplies of gas & oil via the pipelines that circumvent Russia.…

The reporting of Argentinia’s recent election is only the most current example of @BBCNews bias. In its articles they bemoan the loss of the right & spread fear over victory by the left.

But the @BBC will claim to be impartial.…

To further illustrate the bias & partiality of @BBCNews here is another article demonstrating the hand-wringing over defeat of the right & a totally obvious bias against the left... & Cristina Kirchner in particular. @CFKArgentina…

Andrew Gilligan reported to @BBCRadio on the @BBCToday program that the then UK government had “sexed up” a claim about Iraq’s since proven non-existent WMD & the specific claim that one could be readied to use within 45 minutes.…

#Baudet blaast de laatste dagen weer hoog van de toren. Misschien ook wel om de interne strubbelingen in de #fvd te overschreven. Een van zijn terugkerende thema’s is dat hij en zijn partij niet eerlijk behandeld worden, door het publiek, de #media, of nu Otten.
Wie herinnert zich nog de klacht dat #fvd negatief geframed wordt, dat er labels en negatieve stempels op de partij geplakt worden.….
De #fvd: “Het moet nu een keertje klaar zijn. Daarom lopen we ze voor ééns en voor altijd stuk voor stuk langs. Met uitleg waarom de beeldvorming in de media niet klopt.” De 21 ‘frames’ staan tussen aanhalingstekens. Dat wekt de indruk dat het letterlijke citaten zijn. 4/40

#Thread Let me tell you why the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s decision to re-admit Russia will prove to be an own-goal and why those who voted in favour have made a fatal error of judgement.
Your claims that Russia belongs to the CoE with all the rights & obligations this confers is self-defeating. The hallmark of the Kremlin is that it actively chooses to operate outside the norms of international law, whatever the forum and whatever the rules or rulings.
Remember the aggression against Georgia and Ukraine? 13,000 dead and counting. Vetoing and obstruction of the investigation into #MH17? The #Salisbury attack as well as election meddling around the world? Are memories so short?

As Putin again claims “no proof” of Russian responsibility for #MH17 shootdown, let’s recount the incontrovertible evidence as I lay out in #TheShadowWar

1- US satellite and radar data showed within hours that the missile was fired from inside Russian-controlled territory. 1/
2/ Blast pattern in cockpit and fuselage of plane corresponded to blast pattern of Russian BUK antiaircraft missile system - in front of and above target.
3/ Pieces of BUK missile were found inside the bodies of cockpit crew, along with pieces of windshield.
4/ Eyewitness accounts and photographs tracked the BUK missile and mobile launcher’s arrival in Russian-controlled territory hours before the attack and its departure hours after & subsequent return back inside Russia proper.

Here is my post from the day Russian BUK shot down flight #MH17. Russia should be punished for lying in addition to paying for the murders. Failure to cooperate with international investigators should result in Aeroflot being barred from US airports indefinitely. @IATA

What should we make of the MH17 investigation? Certain things make no sense if we are to believe the conclusions so far.

Background: We are asked to believe it was decided to target a passenger plane & that a BUK system was sent on a journey from Russia to Ukraine.


In the first place, what possible motive that made any sense could prompt anyone to decide it was a good idea to shoot a passenger plane down? For this is what we are asked to believe. This has to be the conclusion as the BUK system made this special journey.


For what reason would forthcoming flightpaths across eastern Ukraine be analyzed, a certain flight chosen & then a BUK system sent on a circuitous journey into Ukraine to be readied to shoot it down? For what possible motivation?

In light of #MH17 accusations today, I'd like to remind you of a forgotten - but very relevant - story from the Bosnian War. (THREAD)
On September 3, 1992, an Italian G-222 turboprop plane, supplying humanitarian aid to Sarajevo, was shot down between Kiseljak and Konjic. This was territory controlled by Bosnian Croats, and there were local media reports of militia boasting they did it.
But because this did not fit the Narrative, the incident was blamed on Bosnian Serb aircraft, and the UN passed Resolution 781, creating a no-fly zone over Bosnia.

As the Dutch-led investigation team today nails & names those responsible for downing Malaysian flight #MH17 (killing ten Brits) a thread on how the now UK Labour High Command's responded ATT.
First, Seumas Milne. Acres of words have been written about his, er, pro-Kremlin leanings. Here's one #MH17 related snapshot.…
Milne was careful AFAIK to not actually say or write MH17 but we know his reaction would have been the same 'we need to see the evidence' + Russian-sourced flak, as happened over Salisbury & the Skripals (until his lines became laughable).

@bellingcat For 5 years #Russia's propagandists have denied responsibility for downing #MH17 w/ the now familiar #disinformation ad absurdum blitz. Today's @JITMH17 murder charges prove objective facts DO exist, truth CAN be known. May this be another nail in the Kremlin #propaganda coffin.

1) En voor vandaag staat Rusland op 't menu ... want vandaag is de grote dag dat onafhankelijk onderzoeksdinges Bellingcat haar bevindingen mbt. #MH17 gaat prijsgeven.
2) Voor de integriteit van Bellingcat geef ik geen stuiver, en het zou me niks verbazen als Rusland straks (weer) als de kwaaie pier uit de bus komt.
3) En dat is logisch natuurlijk. Want volgens de reguliere media is Rusland al jarenlang een Groot Gevaar, en is Poetin een imperialist die uit is op onze prachtige vrijheden! Whaaa!

Nearly 5 years ago Bellingcat began it's online open source investigation into the downing of flight #MH17 with the help of an ever expanding online community. First we identified the route the Buk missile launcher took from Donetsk to Snizhne on July 17th 2014.
Thanks to the sharp eye of one Twitter user highlighting the similarities between a Buk filmed in Russia multiple times between June 23-25 and the Buk in Ukraine, we were able to show they were the same Buk missile launcher.
Using multiple videos and photographs published online we were able to track the convoy that missile launcher was part of back to its base near Kursk, home of the 53rd Brigade, the source of the missile launcher that shot down MH17

Distraction: Trump will round up millions of ‘illegal’ aliens.

What could it be?


URN DFM Says Dutch Inv’rs To Name First #MH17 Suspects On 6/19


Trump front-facing 9/11 attackers:

“& I think I know who the other people were [911 perpetrators].”


Trump has said he knows who was behind the al-Qaeda terror attacks on the US in 9/11/01 & added that “Iraq did not knock down the WTC”.

“It was not Iraq,”said Trump “It were [sic] other people.”

“And I think I know who the other people were. And you might also.”

“At an off-camera briefing on Monday, Navy officials acknowledged that nothing in imagery released by the Pentagon shows Iranian Revolutionary Guards planting limpet mines on ships in the Gulf of Oman.”

Seems like Nikita Mikhalkov, Russian film maker & head of the Russian Cinematographers' Union is into some series Pepe De Silva shit with Bellingcat. He starts his video noting Bellingcat was founded 2 days before MH17 was shot down, & pull out this
It seems someone, and I suspect it's not Nikita himself, has been trying to connect the dots between Bellingcat and all sorts of organisations and individuals. Somehow I suspect this is related to the upcoming 5th anniversary of #MH17 being shot down.
It seems to list lots of Bellingcat contributors, including @AricToler, Cameron Colquhoun, @N_Waters89, @DanKaszeta, and lots more.

Former intel chief’s argument that Putin did indeed sway the 2016 vote

James Clapper memoir: “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From a Life in Intelligence.”

The book begins and ends with a brutal appraisal of Trump & the Russian plot to put him in power.…
📌All the intelligence at Clapper’s disposal suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin, a former KGB agent, had made that possible.

Clapper, old Cold Warrior that he was, saw his world turned upside down.…
Suddenly truth, as Clapper understood the term, was out; “alternative facts” were in; and America’s old enemy had a far too cozy relationship with its new commander in chief.…
