🔥Very important thread.🔥

💥No one screamed, shouted & amplified the tactics the Russians used in the Ukraine, Georgia and Estonia, years before they used many of the same tactics they used in the U.S. before the 2016 & 2108 elections.

💥The European Court of Justice (ECJ) will play a significant role into whether the U.K. can reverse the Brexit vote and they are expected to rule before Christmas time.

💀Final exit date is March 29, 2019.

I had the opportunity to attend the #NATO-Industry Forum in Berlin yesterday and the day before, and to moderate the session on autonomy in warfare. A few observations (thread)
[1]
EU-NATO relations were a big topic, with lots of discussion of the European Defence Fund, PESCO, etc. Everyone, including EU commissioner @EBienkowskaEU and Gen Sec Stoltenberg emphasised that Europe's defence efforts are complementary and not in competition with NATO...
[2]
...and yet, the fact that this needs to be continuously emphasised at least points to some worries somewhere.

1/ The President of the United States is systematically dismantling all the institutions we built after WWII to maintain the world order we created.

#Abdication
2/ #NATO, the UN, the WTO, the IMF, World Bank, and our trade agreements are mechanisms for us to have a say in what other countries do. They are tools of our power but they come at a cost.

We cannot just do whatever we want without consulting others and in some cases it costs $
3/ Our modern #empire is dependent upon the US Dollar and US military power. First let's talk about the $USD.

By FAR our most powerful tool, it is based on our political and economic stability. While even DJT can't destroy our economy, he is straining our political stability.

Britain’s Collaboration with pro-Jihadist Forces in #Kosovo.
How the British colluded with the rebel Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which fought alongside al-Qaida militants and essentially acted as NATO’s ground forces in Kosovo.

bit.ly/2rXDP0z
October 2006, Chancellor Gordon Brown said: The threat from al-Qaida did not begin on September 11th – indeed the attacks on the twin towers were being planned as the United States was taking action with Europe to protect Muslims in the former #Yugoslavia.
The British were providing military training to forces connected to the very people planning the 9/11 attacks.
By mid-1998 the KLA controlled parts of Kosovo and had armed and organised around 30,000 fighters

Absolutely extraordinary.

#Syria’s air defense systems have no way to determine “friend” from “foe.” #Russia doesn’t export that tech.

Within a complex & unpredictable environment, that raises the risk to civilian aircraft
significantly.
#Israel says #Syria’s air defense fired “dozens” of anti-aircraft missiles from several batteries across the country over the space of 40-mins… *after* #IAF planes had returned to #Israel.

One took down #Russia’s IL-20.

timesofisrael.com/syria-fired-mi…
To me, this looks like messaging more than a truly dramatic change in reality/dynamics:

- S-300s already deployed in #Syria.

- #Israel (& US) uses encrypted radar/GPS; less vulnerable to counter-measures

- #Russia has been “jamming” for 2+ yrs.

- #Israel fires most from Med.

Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.

1/ #NATO has strongly opposed the #Idlib campaign from #Syria & #Russia, warning a response to a chemical attack and then – to secure an escalation – on any attack. maps.southfront.org/now-u-s-threat…
2/ One #NATO member also strongly opposed to the #Idlib campaign, but for all different reasons: #Turkey reinforced its backed rebels in Idlib with support (after striking out the #HTS on its books) and weapons.

#BreakingNews:

#Syria #Idlib postponed until 15 of #Decembre to start with, with a 15km buffer zone and an engagement of #Turkey to disarm Nusra ( or merge it) and neutralise all other jihadists.
#Moscow has accepted to give #Ankara more time (for after the US sanctions really) to sort out #Idlib and the jihadists in the city, defusing the #US intention to bomb #Syria.

So: no job for warmongers for the next couple of months. Find another war.
#turkey wants the #idlib case to be postponed until the constitutional changes and the peace process to kickoff in #Geneva: more time for Idlib and Turkey to sort out its affairs with Syrian proxies.

All here in details:

Always great to be on @cnni with @rosemaryCNN Church.

Francona: #Syria would be insane to use chemical weapons in the assault on #Idlib governorate. Bashar al-Asad knows using chemical weapons will draw a military response from the United States, France and possibly the UK.
It’s hard to understand the absurdity, but it appears that as long as you only use barrel bombs, artillery, rockets, and missiles to kill, it is deemed almost acceptable, but cross that line and use chemicals, the ire of the world demands a military response. So why use them?
There is no military reason for the Syrians to use chemical weapons. With #Russia|n airpower, artillery, and rocket and missile strikes, combined with #Iran|ian and Hizballah support on the ground, the Syrian military has the required force to reassert control over Idlib.

We are living in a huxleyianorwellian world where the exceptionally exceptional regimes of USA, ISR & SAU do whatever they want, mass murderers praise a mass murderer at his funeral, broadcasted by information mass murderers, as hero &, since 9/11, laws of nature are upside-down.
LET'S pull the mass media's, projecting vitriolic fairy tales into our perilous Plato's cave, plug, GET THE F*** OUT of the insane huxleyianorwellian psychopathic anti universe & live together in freedom, respect, harmony, peace & prosperity for everybody, not only for the few!
Everybody knows, since Herman & Chomsky's Manufacturing Consent at least, that the mass media are enemies of the people. If @realDonaldTrump or @jeremycorbyn dare to do the unthinkable, tell the truth, flack machine shoots and Russia gets the common enemy.

Seeking to retain his position as #CIA director under #HillaryClinton , #Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple @realDonaldTrump candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into #Trumpn, which led the #FBI

ICYMI Senator Rand Paul is in Moscow meeting with Russian lawmakers. Russian press reports he has invited Russian lawmakers to Washington. RIA | Reuters reuters.com/article/us-usa…
Senator @RandPaul wouldn't answer BBC reporter asking if it was right to be in Russia just days after US intel chiefs warned of ongoing Russian threat to US elections. Paul seen here announcing he invited Russian Foreign Relations lawmakers to DC & chatting with infamous Kislyak.

Our partner force in #Syria, the #SDF/#PKK is further formalizing its close relationship with the #Asad/#Iran system and mulling joint offensive operations against a #NATO member. So that's all going well. reut.rs/2LD074A
As @Reuters notes: our partner in #Syria, the #SDF/#PKK, a paragon of liberalism and Western values, "indefinitely postponed" the final stage of an election that was already a Soviet-style sham, excluding thousands of Arabs and run under conditions of suffocating autocracy.
Be interesting to see if the U.S. responds publicly to the #SDF/#PKK's suggestion it will help in #Asad-#Iran-#Russia's proposed campaign of mass-slaughter in Idlib and in joint attacks on NATO's #Turkey.

One highly doubts it; the PKK has literally got away with murder so far.

Secretary #Pompeo is currently testifying to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Republican @SenBobCorker, who chairs the Committee, was harsh in his opening statement.

He pointedly confronted Pompeo on Russia, North Korea, NATO & trade.

Here are his Russia comments. 1/4
Corker also confronted the administration's rhetoric on North Korea.

"In the face of these realities [Kim's atrocities], the President has called him very talented, and that he loves his people...Really?" 2/4

#Pompeo
Corker lambasted the admin's comments on #NATO & the trade war Trump launched that will be devastating to U.S. farmers.

On NATO: "Trump used false information to turn public opinion...against the alliance."

On tariffs: "Farmers would rather have trade than aid." 3/4

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

1) There is a segment of America that is whip smart & God wise to the ways of man & this realm. We didn't catch Germany in time in 1936. In fact, there's evidence we helped arm that mess. Never again. #NWO #NATO #EU #Socialism is going down. We're setting sail in a new direction
2) Our Constitution will not only survive, it will thrive & be the Genesis for many Nations yet to be born across the Earth.
3) The secret of the success of the American Constitution is

- We're never a Generation away from setting a stable path forward for our rights as passed to our progeny.

- We live with the knowledge that we are never a Generation away from loss of the very same rights.

Well, there is one story #FakeNewsCNN covered well and didn't miss a beat. It was an easy assignment. Just focus on the balloon. #BabyTrumpBalloon #NATO #LondonProtest #JimAcosta
Radical Muslims have done harm all across the globe yet liberals across the globe sit quietly and don't protest. Aint that about nothing.
Not once have I seen liberals protesting against radical Muslims that have bombed their countries. Europe has been hit more times than not by radicals (London included) and the sit idly by holding their hands. FOOLS!
