I began my formal research in 1999, eight years after battling my way out of a secret, so-called #Marxist-#Leninist group whose leader controlled my life in its most intimate details.

He determined what I wore: a version of the advice in John Molloy’s bestseller Dress for Success (1975), featuring tailored blue suits and floppy red silk bowties. More significantly, he decided when I could marry, and whether I might have children.

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.

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.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

.@nikkihaley called today's urgent UN Security Council meeting on North Korea. She slammed #Russia for helping #NorthKorea violate sanctions AND for pressuring UN experts to alter an independent report implicating Russian actors in NK sanctions violations. nbcnews.com/news/world/u-s…
TASS reports UN Ambassador Nikki Haley also accused Russia of facilitating the assassination of Kim Jong-Nam by supplying North Korea with the nerve agent ("biological substances")
Mistranslation or disinformation from TASS?? Even Sputnik isn't reporting @NikkiHaley accusing Russia of 'facilitating' Kim Jong-nam assassination. Sputnik quotes her slamming Russia for blocking stronger North Korea sanctions on chemical & biological substances after the murder.

Some footage from #NorthKorea's 40th anniversary parade in 1988. They used to do things a little differently back then. We're expecting a big 70th anniversary parade on September 9.
Hwasong-15, Hwasong-14, Hwasong-13, and Pukguksong-2 foreshadowed.
Well, well. Look at what just made the front page of Rodong Sinmun. (That rail car looks familiar.)

WATCH @TeamCavuto 4:30PM EST on @FoxNews as I breakdown the latest on #NorthKorea, #China and #PresidentTrump. @realDonaldTrump
#NOKO is following the same pattern of diplomacy that they have always done. They have made pledges that they had no intention of keeping and then they cry foul when the US holds them accountable.
This is the norm but also it is a dangerous game for #KimJongUn because #PresidentTrump has a great deal at stake and Kim does not understand how determined the #POTUS is to WIN.

Report offers a glimpse at new DF-41 basing options, "including rail-mobile and silo basing." Language is noncommital, so unclear if China is pressing ahead with this or not. 2/x

#President @realDonaldTrump's words, whether you accept his apology and his explanation, do not comport with his actions and his foreign policy toward #Russia. He has been one of the hardest presidents on Russia in recent memory.

#Trump #IntelligenceCommunity #Collusion
Where was the outrage when @BarackObama told Medvedev to inform #Putin "After my election I have more flexibility,"? I think much of the outrage being expressed- especially by #Republicans- is politically motivated.

#Trump #IntelligenceCommunity #Collusion #Russia
However, what @realDonaldTrump said was not right. It DID undermine our #IntelligenceCommunity, and it was a mistake. He has since corrected it and walked it back.

Well it's pretty simple tbh

Would you like me to explain?

Trump was referring to US/RU relations not the supposed "hacking"

I say supposed because it was already disproven by #Binney

The wider press dismissed it & referred to him as a conspiracy theorist, but failed to mention he's the former head of @NSA

Given the fact that the @FBI were denied access to the server in favour of a private org (and DNC client), @CrowdStrike the question becomes:

Is #Mueller's indictment based on actual evidence from the server OR a report from crowdstrike?

For years, nonproliferation experts & #NorthKorea watchers have suspected the existence of covert uranium enrichment sites in the country. Now, for the first time, we've found one. Introducing the Kangson enrichment site: thediplomat.com/2018/07/exclus… (cc @ArmsControlWonk)
A few notes on this site: it's literally in a suburb of Pyongyang, close to Kim Il Sung's propagandized birthplace (Mangyongdae). It was "hiding" in plain site; it was not an underground site, contrary to earlier reports.
As noted in the article, there's good evidence that North Korea had started building & even operating it in the early 2000s. USIC took until 2010 to designate it a nuclear program-relevant site. That speaks to the difficulties of intelligence analysis & collection in North Korea.

This @QuinnipiacPoll everyone is clinging to is a direct reflection of the news, it’s borderline obsessed with “the children” #FakeNews wins for refusing to cover #KeepFamiliesTogether has been an issue for over a decade, they know that. #ColdAnger

For starters the spread leans left but that seems to be common in polls now. Hard to trust any of them actually.
Here’s what’s interesting that no one is reporting: 91% think civility is a serious problem that’s with all politics not just @realDonaldTrump sorry libs.

SHORT THREAD on the upcoming #Helsinki summit b/n #Putin, @realDonaldTrump.
1. Amidst modest,if not low,expectations on the very deliverables of the meeting it's interesting to see public & back-channel efforts of #Moscow & #Washington to build the agenda for the summit.
2. @AmbJohnBolton 's visit to #Moscow was meant to lay the ground for the summit & it appears the parties have reached agreement on the basics. What #Putin & #Bolton were conveying to one another is important.
al-monitor.com/pulse/original…
3. There's plenty of speculation over what the two will agree on in #Syria - the topic likely to dominate the summit. That said, given what's happening now b/n #Rus #US diplomats it's clear they been tasked to elaborate on broader agenda to make the talks look substantive.

1-The evening of the 22nd of June, Miss #SarahSanders (#WH press secretary) went for dinner with her family to this little place called ‘The Red Hen’. It seems that she was unceremoniously kicked out &harassed some more all the way across the street to the next restaurant
2-It seems somehow this incident has created some sort of mob-mentality wanting to harass Miss Sanders that has gotten to a point in which she now needs protection.

let me tell you about this 'cesspool of political bias' amidst the U.S. new international #snowflake policy of withdrawal from the Human Rights Council
are some of its members egregious human rights abusers? of course. it's comprised of member states of the UN, and it could do much better. until today it included the US, which separates children from parents at the border in violation of international law.
and yes, the Council condemns #Israel's behavior repeatedly, with multiple resolutions, upsetting many who may perceive this as disproportionate attention ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HR…

(1) Another thing Communists did to us:

- They wanted us to do things only for ourselves, and actually look upon others with animosity.
- They wanted us to destroy the family, replacing it with slavery to the government.
(2) Look at the above two points, and figure out what that does to inheritance.

- They convinced baby boomers that their children should have to suffer, not have any financial means to live or own a home or have children or have a family.
(3) They actually convinced baby boomers that it is BAD to give their children inheritance. BOTH @AandGShow's Joe AND Jack complained as soon as they read it's becoming more common for children to consider it theft when their parents spend too much on unnecessary costly items.

On a trip to Seoul after #TrumpKimSummit, @SecPompeo tells reporters the US wants “major steps” on #NorthKorea disarmament in the next 2-2.5 years. Says engagement will begin “some time in the next week or so” to drive the process forward
.@SecPompeo defended @POTUS cancellation of military exercises with #SouthKorea and said they will remain suspended as long as there are “productive, good-faith negotiations” ongoing #northkorea #TrumpKimSummit
On the omission of CVID from Joint Declaration, @SecPompeo said the use of the word “complete” encompassed both terms (verifiable & irreversible) “in the minds of everyone concerned.” Said he was “confident [the North Koreans] understand that there will be in-depth verification.”

In last 24hrs one of the most historic summits of our age took place. Historic because 3 presidents, #Clinton, #Bush, & #Obama, never secured an opportunity like this w/#NorthKorea leadership.

The fact that @realDonaldTrump secured this meeting, and did so only 18 months into his presidency, shows his determination to keep his campaign promises to the #American people.

Kim Jong Un entered this meeting knowing that he was going to agree to #denuclearization.
