Ce n’est pas être #raciste que de s’opposer aux racailles qui volent, cassent, insultent, violent, agressent plus que tout le monde et à l’immigration incontrôlée qui importe ses problèmes et ses conflits sur le territoire
Ce n’est pas être #islamophobe que de s’opposer aux fondamentalistes religieux qui menacent et brutalisent jusque dans leur propre famille et cherchent à imposer par la terreur la barbarie liberticide dans nos vies. Toutes les religions sont concernées.

There is something simmering under the surface with regard to the #WageSubsidyScheme #Covid19, that many employers in the country are availing of, and it’s going to explode when Revenue comes looking for their debt from the employees.
Further info on this here:…
In the wage subsidy scheme, Revenue calculates 70% of your average net pay from Jan/Feb 2020 and gives it to your employer to give to you. Cash in hand so to speak, doesn’t go through the tax part of the payroll system, just gets added to the amount that lands in your bank.

Abro hilo. Entró en vigor el #TEMEC, lo que es bueno para México y para nuestros socios #EUA y #Canadá, sobretodo como están las cosas. Me siento afortunado de haber contribuido con esto y agradecido de con todos las personas involucradas. Comparto 5 reflexiones. Iniciando la negociación formal en 2017
1) Algo que -después de todo- hizo coincidir al Presidente @lopezobrador_ con sus antecesores y con al menos una parte del pasado #neoliberal, también a Demócratas y Republicanos en medio de la polarización de EUA y a los sectores privados, no puede ser tan malo. Firmas del Tratado y su Protocolo Modificatorio
2) Fue una negociación que México y Canadá no buscaron, pero que llevaron a buen puerto para mantener la idea de Norteamérica y su integración económica. No es poca cosa, dada la política comercial del Presidente Trump y en un contexto mundial anti-globalización y complicado Llamada de los Secretarios Videgaray y Guajardo con el Presi

Qué me dirías si supieras que fui subdirector de Difusión en la Sria de Programación y Presupuesto, encabezada por quien después fuera presidente de México, exacto, CARLOS SALINAS... perdón por nombrarlo 🤭

Soy abogado por la UAM, ingeniero civil por la UNAM y doctor en Políticas Públicas por el Tec de Monterrey... seguro pensarás que soy un #tecnócrata y #neoliberal, cierto? Ah y me incorporé al PRI desde 1973, a mis 19, seguro ni habías nacido!!
Y si te dijera que fui secretario particular de una leyenda del priismo, cuando este fue secretario de Desarrollo Social, cuando fue líder nacional del PRI y hasta cuando fue candidato a la presidencia de la República... me dirías #Prianista???

“The fallacies of the #neoclassical loanable funds view of interest rates and the related myths about #fiscal #sustainability and crowding out, would be seen to be nonsensical. #Neoliberal narratives would be undercut."
"We could get on with having a rational and well-informed discussion about issues such as the appropriate role and size of the #government within the #economy; the appropriate design of more effective automatic stabilisers like the #JobGuarantee; ..."

Interesting how in the last weeks #degrowth and the climate left has been increasingly criticized by neoliberals & the mainstream. Here the #neoliberal @Heritage foundation.

Why? Are neoclassical economics and the growth paradigm so much under pressure?…
By the way, @StephenMoore co-founded in 1999 the Club for Growth, a group advocating tax cuts and a reduction in government spending, becoming its president.

For more on the author's track record see…
And in 2009 described climate change as "the biggest scam of the last two decades."

Just published article in @CCPA Monitor (ed.@StuJT) analyzing #inequality & low public investment as drivers behind #Chile’s protests calling for economic justice, and how such calls could signal a break in 40-year increase in inequality there & elsewhere…

Since October, millions of Chileans have taken to the streets in defiance of their government, to demand change to economic policies first imposed under dictatorship, replace the dictatorship-era constitution, & challenge the state’s harsh security response


Chileans are protesting many types of inequalities & injustices

Income inequality in Chile, as shown by top 1% share of income in Fig.1, has trended higher than other countries, soared during the dictatorship (more than other countries) & has stayed high for last 30 years

THREAD: Throughout the #revolution, protesters have clearly opposed the effects of postwar #capitalism. However, we've still been raised and #socialized in a world dominated by this #neoliberal model, which breeds a distinct #counterrevolutionary culture. Some examples.⬇️

The western concept of "civility" has been used to undermine the revolution by claiming that those engaging in more violent forms of protests are ruining it.

When a system is inherently violent (starving, stealing, repressing, incarcerating), it's just a pathetic argument.

The lie that Hariri/IMF bailout is our sole solution for econ survival (which many believe) is directly from the neoliberal playbook: it erases alternative conceptions of progressive, equitable, autonomous socioeconomic models - convincing us neocolonialism is unavoidable.

Pls don't be rattled or deceived.

While Corbyn & Sanders have some similarities, they are not same, nor are UK & US the same: Brexit & antisemitic attacks against Corbyn are 2 examples.

Corporate #MSM tactics are the same in UK & US.

Utilizing Labour's defeat, MSM is ...
trying to leverage loss against #Bernie2020. Ppl compared the 2 campaigns. As Labour votes declined last night, some quickly piggybacked that #Bernie2020 & Left values were not viable.

I watched as Berners became heartbroken, worried Labor loss would infect U.S. momentum...
UK Labour loss is similar to our 2016 Dem Primary & election loss.

We need to focus on #Progressive ground game here in U.S. Don't listen to corp #MSM pundits w/ contrived polls throwing pasta at wall hoping anyone but #Bernie2020 sticks & corporate "manufacturing consent",

What really is the Democratic Left?

Combating MSM, @DNC & the Right's misinformation campaign, propaganda & lies about where Left, Center & Right actually are politically w/ some fucking history & facts to protect our #Democracy from modern slavery #Neoliberalism.
French Revolution Nat. Assembly seating was origins of political Left & Right spectrum designations.

Left wanted reform, new constitution w/ Declaration of Rights of Man & of Citizen

Right wanted to continue Ancien Régime - monarchy & feudal nobility

1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
2. These rights are liberty, property, safety and resistance against oppression.
5. The law has the right to forbid only actions harmful to society...…

was burnt (allegedly because the author(s) "#VertigoPolitix" closed down the account themselves). It was entitled "The #emasculation of White Male #Identity". It argued that ALL major movements and decisions in the past 100 years ..
.. had one ultimate goal: to make European White males become powerless and, eventually, extinct. As the interesting narration appears to be available in text-form on the web, I will transcribe the entire narration here. I repeat that the author is "VertigoPolitix", not I.

#Venezuela's #NicolasMaduro:
"We had a large shipment of medicines to last the country for a year,a large batch of raw materials for food. The bank account was frozen,the contracts were cancelled & the money is seized. They suffocate us,steal our money & put a show for the world"
Nov. 2017:The transnational Pharmaceutical companies Baster,Abbot & Pfizer refused to issue exportation certificates to #Cancer drugs,making it impossible for #Venezuela to buy them
July 2017: The Citibank bank (#USA) refuses to receive #Venezuelan funds from the Central Bank for the import of 300 thousand doses of insulin, destined to cover the demand of 450 thousand registered patients.

Nothing to see here folks, just a picture of #Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey with Claudia Ruiz Massieu Salinas, niece of frmr #Mexico Pres. #CarlosSalinas, who recently took over the #neoliberal #Mexican PRI political party, widely considered 2 be the most #Corrupt in #Mexico. #NXIVM
This is a picture of my former colleague & good friend of 10+ years, Marco Lopez, who is Napolitano's #ArizonaMafia nmd. member #4, with Claudia Ruiz Massieu Salinas, neice of former Mexico Pres. Carlos Salinas. The picture was posted publicly on Marco's Twitter page for a while.
In this picture, my frmr. colleague Marco Lopez, who is Napolitano's #ArizonaMafia nmd. member #4, is talking to his good friend, #Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, in #Mexico last year. Surely, Marco was telling the Gov. that #SkyBridgeAZ will only ship e-commerce goods t/f #Arizona.

After 70 years of imperial/neoliberal indoctrination the web of lies is so obviously absurde (9/11, Skripal, WH = ISIS, etc.), that it is dissoluting. The empathetic humanity connects, closes ranks and sends their eternal psychopathic rulers and their lackeys into nowhere land.
The "evil empire" is a lifelong three year old child. I certainly loved my children at that age too, however only because they created not only a surreal mess, but also made steady progress.

A great documentary about psychopathy and society:
The elite invented "democracy" to protect them from the empathetic people. The media are their means for misleading the people sedated by "democracy". This is definitely a bad thing since the people have become educated and the elite almost totally insane.
