Darya, daughter of Alexander #Dugin was killed in a car bomb attack near the village of Bolshiye Vyazyomy. Sources speculate it could have been either the Kremlin or Ukraine responsible.
Who is Darya Dugin?
She was very outspoken about her hatred for Ukrainians.

Nochmal ein paar "Fun Facts" zu #Trump und seinen geklauten Dokumenten

1. #Trump ruft nach der Veröffentlichung des Durchsuchungsbefehls, dann stellt das Justizministerium den Antrag auf Veröffentlichung, dann wird Trump auf einmal SEHR leise.


Weil Trump eine Kopie

des Dokuments erhalten hat. Er hätte es jederzeit veröffentlichen können. Er wollte mit dem "Legt es offen!" nur mal wieder die Märtyrer Bongos bearbeiten. Durchschaubar.

2. Das Bild im ersten Tweet ist die Gesetzesänderung, die #Trump 2018 mitgetragen hat, um eine höhere
Gefängnisstrafe für #HillaryClinton zu erreichen, Ihr erinnert euch: "But her emails"... Nun wird ihm das evtl. selbst zum Verhängnis. Gerüchteweise handelt es sich um 20+ Dokumente, die er widerrechtlich geklaut hat. Von einer "einfachen" Strafe von maximal 1 Jahr wurde der

I'm seeing a number of tweets asking how a mass shooting can occur in a mall in Copenhagen despite the strict firearms legislation in place here. It feels necessary to add some facts to the conversation: 🧵🧶🪡
#shooting #mall #copenhagen #Denmark
1) Denmark has had two random (2) mass shootings in eight (8) years, today and one in 2015, where two (2) died. That is 0,25 shooting a year for a country of roughly six million. I'm fairly certain the US have long since used up that horrible quota.
2) Gang shootings are not a part of that number (0,25/year). Why? They have claimed relatively few victims and are rare. Perps usually use handguns and not assault weapons (there's that legislation again!). They also target rival gangs, making them less deadly for "civilians".

In order to become a hair stylist in the US, the candidate must attend a training course, take written and practical exams, pay a license fee and renew that license every few years, and take continuing ed classes. /1
To buy a gun in many US states, all the purchaser needs is cash. Not every state requires a permit, though they do require a background check IF the gun is purchased from a dealer. Online sales and gun shows DO NOT require a background check. /2
Only 7 states require safety training in order to own a gun: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, Washington, California, and Hawaii. /3

Virginia Beach #massshooting #OTD in 2019. Twelve dead. Remember how the five dead in the Boston Massacre set in play the American Revolution? There is not one legit reason for #AR15s + high-capacity mags. 1/
2/ AR-15 is short for Armalite Rifle, the name of the company that invented #AR15s for, get this, military use. Ban #AR15 assault rifles. If you need 30-rounds, then you're a mass murderer or a really bad shot. Either way, you're a danger to society. #GunSense #GunViolence ImageImageImageImage
3/ The Supreme Court thinks open carry/conceal carry, etc., are fine, but not inside the #SupremeCourt. #NRA, #Glock, #ShotShow, don't allow open carry or often even guns in their offices, events, etc. GOP cowards. #2A #2ndAmendment…

2/ #2ndAmendment #2A #AR15 The right to carry AR-15 high-capacity semi-automatics was never "original intent". The Constitution was never amended to permit them from being carried around concealed or in the open or in any other way. Activist judges slipped them through. So there. ImageImageImageImage

"Insieme ci riprenderemo la Camera, ci riprenderemo il Senato e, nel 2024, ci riprenderemo quella grande e bellissima Casa Bianca che amiamo e a cui teniamo così tanto".
È con queste parole che Donald #Trump infiamma la convention della NRA, la potentissima lobby delle armi. Image
A Houston, Texas, lo stesso stato di #Uvalde, #Trump fa quello che gli riesce meglio: vellicare gli istinti di quella (cospicua) parte di Paese che rappresenta (e rappresenterà) lo zoccolo duro della sua base elettorale. Image
Perché è questa la non-notizia della serata. Tra un richiamo ad "America First" ed un altro al "Make America Great Again", The Donald lascia intendere di non essersi ancora liberato dall'ossessione della sconfitta, dalla voglia della grande rimonta.
È il tema della sua vita. Image

We need to talk about the bastardization of the 2A by the #GOP, the NRA, & the captured Supreme Court.

The INDIVIDUAL right to own a gun was NOT given by the Founding Fathers.

Republican Supreme Court Chief Justice Burger 1991.

His words...

"The gun lobby’s interpretation of the Second Amendment is one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American people by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime....

Kid from North Dakota buys two AR-15 assault rifles on 18th birthday. In #Uvalde #Texas he kills 18 children, 3 adults. Let's include 10 Kevlar vests and 10 bulletproof backpacks in the price of each gun. #CostofBusiness #NRA 1/…
2/ #2A #2ndAmendment not for high-capacity guns but militia-men w/ muzzle-loaded muskets, etc. Ban high-capacity magazines. All gun sales or transfer, public or private, must require a background check and registration. Gun thefts/gifts must be reported.

Getting a haircut and a little light reading. Been hearing good things from reform minded NRA members about this book by @timkmak

#nra Image
Mak begins with a claim he has made before, no better documented here than elsewhere, that the NRA is "America's most powerful advocacy group." A well-reported book doesn't need this kind of unsubstantiated hyperbole. Just say the NRA is powerful. This is undisputed #nra #misfire Image
Ch. 1: Wayne. Unflattering portrait of a leader as a "clumsy, meek, spastic man with a weak handshake." I do object to Mak's characterization of WLP as having a "professorial demeanor."

1/9 I've had enough of #Elxn44 depravity. A death threat was broadcast about me by a podcaster you all listen to. Daily there are men on Twitter #SnitchTagging me to gun nuts to spark confrontation

2/9 Most of you want the difficult reporting on dangerous topics that keep you up at night. But on social media, there's this trend where some of you (too many of you) throw female reporters at your enemies, as if we're virtual human shields you've nominated to fight your battles
3/9 But as you 'get your popcorn' to spectate at the events you've chosen for us to do battle, against the very entities you're afraid of, some of them try to track us down in our communities. I've had calls to my home from Yellow Vesters, Wexiters, Qanons, you name it

several hundred people from the Heritage database ultimately received jobs in government agencies, including Scott Pruitt, Betsy DeVos, Mick Mulvaney, Rick Perry, Jeff Sessions and others who became members of Trump's cabinet

Jim DeMint, president of the Heritage Foundation from 2013 to 2017, personally intervened on behalf of Mulvaney who would go on to head the Office of Management and Budget, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and later become acting White House Chief of Staff.

Il Congresso USA ha approvato due misure per maggiori controlli sull'acquisto di #armi. Background check (verifica che non vi siano motivi ostativi) e maggior tempo per FBI valutare l’idoneità (da 3 a 10 giorni). Ma dovranno passare l'esame al Senato. 1/3…
Se fossero stati in vigore si sarebbe potuta evitare la strage nella chiesa di Charleston, dove il suprematista bianco Dylann Roof uccise 9 persone. A lamentarsi, come sempre, è la lobby delle armi #NRA che definisce i controlli "restrizioni dei diritti"!…
Positivo, invece, il giudizio delle associazioni che da anni sono attive per chiedere maggiori controlli sulle vendite di armi. Tra queste la @GiffordsCourage fondata dall'ex deputata @GabbyGiffords che fu sparata e ferita da un #legaledetentorediarmi.…

Marx had postulated that 'force is the midwife of every old society pregnant with a new one'

✳️ Excerpt from book 'Battles of the Ugandan resistance: A tradition of #Maneuver'

It is the ambiguity about the role of individuals in the making of history that presents the greatest problem with the deterministic notions inherent in Marxism's conception of history.


✳️ 'Battles of the Ugandan resistance'
For Gen Tumwine, mental preparation in terms of sharpening convictions and demonstrating victory is possible, is much more important than the amount of arms one has access to initially. It is people who win wars not weaponry.

This is an especially stupid argument...

There's a bunch of things wrong here, let's go point by point.

First off, the gun homicide rate in US is lowest in states with highest gun ownership. Image
Interestingly enough, Wyoming has a murder rate the same as right across the border in more gun-controlled Canada...about a third of the US as a whole.

BC factors giving Canada a low murder rate give Wyoming a low murder rate...and those don't include lower gun ownership.
Similarly, there are many US states that combine very low firearm ownership with very high murder rates.

The highest "state" murder rate in the country is that of Washington, DC, which has a murder rate of 21.8, more than twenty times that of Wyoming
