1) #ghislanemaxwell’s indictment focuses on the years “1994-1997”- WHY?

THREAD

We know she was involved w/#Epstein past that, so why make ‘94-‘97 charges the first to be unsealed? I was just a kid, so I did a little dig...-woah- #Clinton #Impeachment #FBIfiles #NAFTA
2) #ghislanemaxwell & #Epstein were literal partners in crime, clearly. While ppl focus on Epstein, she’s the real Oz behind the curtain. Her father was allegedly a triple spy for MI6, Mossad, & Russia. She had the global elite & royalty connections

3) What was occurring in 1992? Just a couple of months before the Clinton vs Bush Sr election, #Epstein was ranch shopping in New Mexico. Just 4 hours south, and connected to a back highway that goes through the desert, is Juarez Mexico. Perfect for their #ChildTrafficking

Meanwhile, here in #Missouri:

Despite a major spike in active positive cases of #COVIDー19 in #AudrainCounty (from 22 to 46 on Friday, alone, in a county of ~25K), testing numbers **WILL NOT BE REPORTED AGAIN UNTIL MAY 26**, because of #MemorialDayWeekend.

Also (per @MexLedgerCD): During this sudden uptick, Audrain Co.'s drive-thru testing site at St. Mary’s Hospital, in Mexico, Mo., "will be closed Monday in observance of #MemorialDay."

The next closest testing site is in Columbia — 40 MILES AWAY. bit.ly/2ZvGxxB

The outbreak in question centers around #AnimalFeedingOperations in Paris, Mo. and Thompson, Mo., owned by @BrennemanPork, which is based in Washington, Iowa. brennemanpork.com

@JohnMappin @PammyC10 @prayingmedic @Qanon76 I’ve done a lot of research on this I can share if you’re interested. ✌️❤️🇺🇸

“Second verse, same as the first.”

The Establishment Democrats and their corporate shills on TV and all over social media are already signaling that they want Bernie to drop out of the race, even though half of America hasn’t voted yet.
#DropOutBernie

This was always their main objective.
They sent almost 30 candidates at him.
They spent easy over a billion collectively.
Even now every state has disturbingly inaccurate exit polling that in any other country the OAS would deem as a fraudulent election. And yet here we are.

*crickets.

The #NoBidenPledge:

We pledge to neither vote for, convince others to vote for, nor support the campaign of @JoeBiden in the event he becomes the Democratic Party nominee

#NoBiden
#DemExit
Some of us are independents. Some are lifelong Democrats. Some were #ObamaToTrump voters in 2016. Some are @BernieSanders supporters, others @ewarren supporters, and others undecided.

All of us would have otherwise supported @TheDemocrats in the general election.
Our three major objections:

1) @JoeBiden’s history of support for right-wing policy

2) Concerns about Biden’s health and ability to defeat Trump and carry out the office of President

3) The DNC and media’s collective effort to smother a grassroots progressive movement

De BELANGRIJKSTE punten uit de #CETA-speech van @thierrybaudet. De #EU onderhandelt namens 27(26) landen en dus NIET namens #Nederland.
#OneSizeFitsNoOne
Vergelijkbaar probleem: de #ECB KAN geen rentevoet vaststellen die voor elk EU-land goed is.
#Nederland wordt nu al gedwarsboomd BINNEN de #EU
Voorbeeld: #Frankrijk zorgde dat de NL #pulsvisserij kapot werd gemaakt. #CETA is een ondermijning van onze #democratie en #soevereiniteit.
De #anywheres profiteren, de #somewheres verliezen hun stem.
Kunnen we na #CETA nog voorwaarden stellen aan producten uit Canada? We geven iets weg wat we NOOIT meer terug kunnen krijgen. Lobbyisten van #multinationals krijgen NOG MEER invloed ten koste van de gewone burgers. De weg ligt open voor #procedeerclubs als #Urgenda.

1/ As part of our yearlong exploration on the future of Texas, we’ll be traveling to El Paso on Feb. 20 for a discussion on the future of the border region: bit.ly/2twQD3E

Follow this thread to see what we’ll be discussing! #ttevents
2/ In December, @elpasotimes reported that borderland business leaders applauded the agreement between the @POTUS administration and House Democrats on a new North American trade deal. bit.ly/2GZzLpu
@elpasotimes @POTUS 3/ While the passage was uncertain at times, the Texas delegation unanimously supported the international agreement that will replace #NAFTA. bit.ly/2Osivgr

Largest most balanced trade agreement ever achieved signed today!

#USMCA
Will add 1.2% to our DGP and countless jobs...massive gains for our nation's citizens. Replaced outsourcing with jobs right here in America!

A partnership with Mexico and Canada against the world :-) Great day for all 3 countries.
1/5 manufacturing jobs lost under #NAFTA
2 decades of politicians vowed to replace NAFTA but never tried. They sold out.
POTUS not like other politicians

#PromisesMadePromisesKept
#USMCA is key to #AmericaFirst

1/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

I accept several followers may block me after this statement, but that doesn't make it any less important to confront partisans with the truth, or spark debate when a Canadian political party becomes a threat to democracy & human life
2/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

Once upon a time the @NDP repped the conscience of bleeding hearts, democracy & diversity, but that party exists no more

In its wake is a hollow shell that is now directed by disinfo campaigns on Facebook, in lieu of facts & reality
@NDP 3/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

Curiously @theJagmeetSingh has proven to be out of touch with political events & indifferent to the best interests of his constituency

One example of this ego-driven defiance is opposition to the new #NAFTA at the direct cost of unions

Don't dismiss the threat against #Mexico as a cranky #Trump brain fart. He'd like to provoke Mexico's Congress, now voting on the new #NAFTA, to kill it. It requires US auto parts factories to double wages... newyorker.com/news/our-colum…
The factories are owned by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. #Mexico's President #AMLO has the brains to play it cool. He's called for a Marshall Plan for Central America, which Mexico will help fund, so Hondurans and Guatemalans won't need to flee. gregpalast.com/how-the-bernie…
...I'm packing for Mexico now, hoping to meet again with AMLO!

I lived in England for years and as an investigative reporter I followed the creation of this monstrosity of globalization called the #EuropeanUnion. It's #NAFTA times 50! soundcloud.com/user-835943867… #Brexit
My investigation into the EU began when I got the minutes of 14 secret meetings between all the top banking chiefs and international government operatives. They called themselves #TheInvisibles. gregpalast.com/the-wtos-hidde… #Brexit
The Invisibles were writing the rules of the EU to smash unions and stop regulation of industry. We’ve just seen an example of this; Germany was about to vote to eliminate #RoundUp, but changed its crucial vote weeks after BAYER bought #Monsanto. soundcloud.com/user-835943867… #Brexit

Going after #Trump? Evidence from the #tradewar. This is a brief thread describing a new paper that it is joint work with Carlo Schwarz @Warwick_Econ PhD student (going on the market this year). The paper circulates as @cepr_org - ungated WP ssrn.com/abstract=33490…
The question we ask is quite simple: were the retaliation measures triggered by China, the #EU, and the #NAFTA against Trump's tariffs politically targeted? We study the trade escalation triggered by US steel tariffs and various #Section301 #tariffs.
Interestingly, this is the first trade dispute in a long time that actually escalated to that level. The last case that came close was also the case of steel tariffs in the early 2000s -- but then retaliation measures, while being threatened, were never triggered as US caved in.

In 2012, Tim Cook announced Apple would make a Mac computer in the US.

But when Apple began making the $3000 computer in Texas, it struggled to find enough screws. By the time the computer was ready for mass production, Apple had ordered screws from China nyti.ms/2HBT2QK
Apple CEO Tim Cook: “The skill here is just incredible. In the US, you could have a meeting of tooling engineers and I’m not sure we could fill the room. In China, you could fill multiple football fields.” (h/t @scottlincicome)
"Caterpillar said costs tied to new US tariffs on foreign goods, including steel and aluminum, were just above $100 million over the 5 months of 2018 that they were in effect.

The company expects more than $200 million in tariff-related costs this year." wsj.com/articles/cater…

THREAD: We are at a DANGEROUS point in corporate media/Twitter culture where propaganda is being pushed BREATHLESSLY to make it seem U.S. voters brains were hacked by Russia. It's being pushed by @cnn @msnbc @nytimes @neeratanden and the rest of the gang that is PROFITING from...
this propaganda. I covered 40-50 Trump rallies/events during campaign--many of them in MI, WI, PA, and Ohio. I interviewed 100s of his voters. I can tell you with 100% journalistic and observational certainty that Trump's talk about destroying #NAFTA, taking it to the banks, &
anti-immigrant bigotry were the KEY reasons he won those states. Russian "influence" or brainwashing voters' minds doesn't even make the top 10 list. @HillaryClinton was a BAD candidate who supported policies like NAFTA that decimated these key Rust Belt states. The continued...

Everyone else has given their take on #JamalKhashoggi and the claim it was a Saudi Arabia hit authored by none other than Mbs himself. I'm not going to tell you why it's complete idiocy to make those claims, I am going to tell you instead WHY it's being done. Wait for it..
It's about stopping Donald J Trump. Think I'm kidding? Let's examine what's happening. The US is about to head into the most important Midterm election in our nations history in 22 days.
What historically is a metaphorical bloodbath for the party in power in an off year election, the blue wave you have all heard so much about? Yeah, that's not happening. Internal poll numbers have told democrats & media types for months now they wouldn't regain power by ballot.

1) Columbus Day 2018 is half time at the 2018 Mid-Term Bowl. The score is GOP 17 and Democrats 16. Let’s recap the first half.

#BlueWave #RedWave #2018MidTermElections

2) Going into the game the Democrats were riding their #BlueWave of enthusiasm. They were so confident America was tired of all the lies and sordid behavior of Coach Trump that the Democrats could win the game easily.
3) They laughed at their good fortune every time a GOP player would pledge to work closely with their coach; such easy pickings.
