Smart. By working outside of a coalition he can use the different parties to pass the different parts of his agenda. If he wants to do climate action he can work with NDP/Greens/Bloc. If he wants to build pipelines the CPC should be willing to help. /1
If he wants to provide federal funding for $7/day daycare maybe he'll get some Bloc and NDP support.

That being said, I think it's highly unlikely the parties that SHOULD support his policies will because #Politics. But avoiding a coalition does give him more freedom /2
to push the legislation that the center-right Liberal Party of Canada believes in.

Because of the size of his minority, he will be able to pass legislation with ANY one of the 2nd-4th place parties so long as he keeps his caucus together. This differs from past minority /3

Best Description of @realDonaldTrump I’ve Read

Someone on Quora asked “Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote the following response:

A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities
2/
which the British traditionally esteem.

For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with
3/
which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly

Do you think #QsArmy is just a bunch of people sitting at the computer doing nothing?

Do you think #Anons are stealing valor?

Reverberations of #PLF2019 ringing in my ears, this ideas-packed edition, curated by @KanchanGupta and @ARanganathan72, is easily the best #LitFest I've attended.
That it is located in the land of Sri Aurobindo, @integralyog, gives it the Force of #nationalism.

A thread...
2/n
#PLF2019 is not a Left-wing #LitFest. But it isn't Right-wing either.
When I heard the various sessions, I knew that more than all other platforms of debate and discourse, it is here that India is articulating its Indian intellectual traditions.
3/n
But what is Indian? Why strike out and create a new category at #PLF2019?
Because, the Indian mind...
1. Cannot be captured and constrained into a single Left-Right box.
2. Is all-embracing, all-respectful.
3. Goes beyond toleration and epitomises acceptance.

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

1/ Just got off the phone with Mark Sanford, who is in Washington this morning (I could hear the Metro in the background), where he is making media rounds post-announcement. Some highlights from our phone call...
#scpol #2020Election #scnews #chsnews #politics
2/ Sanford hopes to begin hiring campaign staff this week. Declaring today was a key part of making sure he can recruit/attract the political talent he needs to run this campaign. #scpol #2020Election #scnews #chsnews #politics
3/ Speaking of running the campaign, this one is unlike any he has done before. Usually very very planned, this campaign is much more incremental (step by step, week by week, month by month.) "That’s the complete opposite of every campaign I've ever run in my life!" #scpol

Your article is a band-aid solution to a problem where surgery is needed.
Cancer will not heal it'self with medication alone. A surgeon must go in and disect the root cause of the problem.

In the case of your article the root cause is:
#politics
🔸2
Politics.
There are less opportunities existing for African American communities.
Higher poverty.
Less employment, which leads to Higher crime rates for survival. Higher drug use + sales + violence + murders + school drop outs etc.
#QAnon2019 #USA #school #love #NFL100

My statement can be easily
confirmed by every statistical analysis of Democrat vs Republican run cities and schools.
50 + years the cities with the highest poverty, crime, corruption etc are run by democrats.
School facilities are overwhelmingly run and taught by Liberals

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

Frustrating how @TwitterSupport suspends #Iranian dissidents like #HeshmatAlavi while #IranLobby is enjoying the #FreedomOfSpeech, press & safety in #USA using full name, picture & verified @Twitter accounts.
Obviously their families in #Iran are also safe thanks 2 their lobbying
When @jack Dorsey, @ev-an Williams & @biz Stone founded @Twitter in 2006 it began as a toy for online flirtation but during the #IranElection in 2009 it suddenly turned to a serious platform for #Politics representing #FreedomofExpression & #FreedomOfSpeech in #Iran
#FreeAlavi
People in #Iran used anonymous @twitter accounts to tell the world about what is happening in the streets of #Tehran in real time. This is exactly what #HeshmatAlavi was doing especially during #IranProtests in Dec 2017 until his account was suspended.

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

1/15
2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

My article on #Maidan massacre in #Ukraine, its cover-up and stonewalled investigation, and its misrepresentation by @nytimes and US architectural company 3D model. #UkraineElection #UkraineElections2019 consortiumnews.com/2019/04/22/the…
Maidan massacre was a watershed event, not only for politics and history of #Ukraine but also for world #Politics generally. This mass killing in downtown Kyiv set the stage for violent overthrow of the pro-#Russian government in Ukraine and a new Cold War between US and #Russia.
Therefore, it is remarkable that five years after this massacre shook the world, no one has been sentenced for any of the Maidan killings. This was the best documented case of mass killing in history, broadcast live on TV & the internet, in presence of thousands of eyewitnesses.

This is a #Thread about one of the many trolls who is targeting #Native and #Indigenous @Twitter accounts.

The account #@Blondi65003273 is interacting with #NativeAmericans by #JustAskingQuestions

Nothing obviously provocative.

#NativeTwitter
One of Blondi’s followers is another account that claims to be #Native #Ojibwe
However, one of her first posts demonstrate her to be not your average concerned Wisconsin #Native from the North Woods. She posts a picture of a dismembered body that is supposed to convince voters that we need a stronger immigration policy to deter crime.

THREAD: The rise of political tribalism might be overstated, according to political scientist @MattGrossmann. niskanencenter.org/blog/political…
Since the 2016 election, there HAS been a real rise in negative partisanship...and party bias may even have economic consequences. BUT there are a few caveats: soundcloud.com/user-735940457…
1.When answering questions about opposing parties, citizens tend to think more about political leaders than their fellow citizens. And many citizens dislike BOTH parties’ leaders.

Mega Thread of Opinion (1 of 52)

My take on #Election2019, is one that will surprise all #Canadians who will take the #time to read past this #headline. It will be a #long #series of #tweets that will be #purely #honest & straight to the #point.
This #series of tweets will contain #jabs at #voters, the #media & our #political #parties & they are #jabs, that in my own #opinion are #merited. Agree or don’t agree, I won’t care, but it needs to be said to ease my conscience in the lead up to our election!
In 2015, Canada’s #media, declared that #Trudeau & .@liberal_party outflanked the @NDP on leftist policies & for the 1st time in recent history the media supported large deficits & destruction of our country’s finances over a more balanced approach. Let’s stop here for a sec.

Ronald Reagan furthered
#NWO Corporatocracy agenda.

Reagan’s "patriotic" call to arms and support for US militarism, enlarged the military-industrial complex, and
made possible a new wave of American imperialism and regime changes world wide.

Leaders of Scottish Rite of Freem@sonry were so proud of Ronald Reagan they made him an "Honorary Scottish Rite Mason" near the end of his 2nd term.

I’m a mom, a businesswoman and a state legislator serving South Carolina. At a young age, I was determined to forge my own path through life. And nearly 20 years ago I became the first female graduate of The Citadel after following in my father’s footsteps.

I also have experience starting my own business and in 2017 ran for - and won - a seat in the state legislature, on my own terms.

As women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the WHOLE story.

The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore. The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach. (3/6)
